Chris Smith’s Lyme Disease Amendment Passes House, Tells DOD IG to Investigate ‘Weaponization’ of Ticks

WASHINGTON, D.C.— The full House of Representatives passed an amendment offered by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) which directs the Inspector General (IG) of the Department of Defense to investigate the “possible involvement of DOD biowarfare labs in the weaponization of Lyme disease in ticks and other insects”  from 1950-1975.

According to Smith, he was “inspired to write the amendment”—now part of the House-passed 2020 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)—by “a number of books and articles suggesting that significant research had been done at U.S. government facilities including Fort Detrick, Maryland and Plum Island, New York to turn ticks and other insects into bioweapons.”

Sheriff Golden signed 10 year deal with ICE

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden

Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden quietly extended the County’s 287 (g) agreement with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency on March 8, 2019, apparently in defiance of the Murphy Administration’s Sanctuary State Policies as implemented by State Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal’s Immigration Trust Directive.

Golden’s agreement with ICE, and that of Cape May County Sheriff Robert A. Nolan, were reported last night by NJ.com.

287 (g) agreements empower local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration laws and to cooperate with ICE officers. Read the rest of this entry »

Arnone Report: Celebrating Independence, Fixed Roads and Improvement at the Dump

By Monmouth County Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

Freeholder Director Tom Arnone

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth of July holiday! I’d like to thank all those who have served our great nation and protected our freedom. Your service and commitment is truly appreciated.

To celebrate the holiday, I participated in a few events that showcased how special small-town traditions truly are. I’d like to thank the Monmouth County Historical Association for hosting their Independence Day Celebration at the Allen House, where I had the honor of participating in the reading of the Declaration of Independence.

I was happy to spend part of the holiday walking in the annual Ocean Grove Fourth of July Parade. As always, I had a great time walking the route and seeing everyone dressed in their best patriotic clothing while holding American flags.

O’Scanlon Calls For Judge Troiano’s Resignation

Senator Declan O’Scanlon

Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) is calling for the resignation of Monmouth County Superior Court Judge James Troiano, who recently ruled that a 16-year-old rape survivor was not truly raped since she was not held at gunpoint. Judge Troiano also reportedly urged the survivor to consider that her attacker came from a “good family” before “ruining his life” with assault charges.

“Judge Troiano’s comments are truly abhorrent and clearly highlight the fact that he needs to be removed immediately by the Supreme Court,” O’Scanlon said. “We simply cannot stand by and allow a sitting judge to tell a 16-year-old sexual assault survivor that she doesn’t deserve justice because her attacker might get into a ‘good college.’” Read the rest of this entry »
