“After almost two years of vigorous investigation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller—aided by 19 lawyers, about 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants and others—has found that there was no collusion whatsoever by President Trump (or anyone associated with his campaign) with the Russians to influence the 2016 election. This vindication is good news for America, not so good for the credibility of those who insisted on an almost daily basis that there was ample evidence which demonstrated that the President was guilty of collusion. In the end, Mueller’s Report proves that the truth matters. False charges should have no place in American politics.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Smith, Donald Trump, Monmouth County News, New Jersey | Tags: Congressman Chris Smith, Mueller Report, President Donald Trump, Robert Mueller | 15 Comments »
Congressman Chris Smith today announced that the $101.57 million in funding for projects scheduled at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst this year is safe from being diverted to fund the southern border security projects covered by President Donald Trump’s Emergency Declaration of February 15.
“These projects are not at risk,” Smith said after having been assured by the Department of Defense that awards for anticipated construction at the Joint Base are on schedule to be awarded in the current fiscal year. “Nothing at the Joint Base will be cut.”Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Smith, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: CD-4, Congressman Chris Smith, JB-MDL, Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, Monmouth County News, NJ 4, Ocean County News, President Donald Trump, Southern border security | 1 Comment »

No matter the category, the answer is always Donald Trump to the liberal media and late night talk show “comedians.” All they need to do is figure out the question.
The latest foray into insanity was CNN’s blaming Trump for the disaster in New Zealand. There is so much wrong with that, it is difficult to know where to begin. The attack on the mosque in New Zealand is unacceptable. It is a tragedy. It is a further example of a world moving away from the civilization we thought had grown since World War II. That it would be exploited by anyone for political purposes is disgusting. That it is exploited by an organization claiming to be a “news” organization is not just reprehensible, it is a red flag that major changes are needed, beginning with the complete remaking of our media institutions.admin | Filed under: Opinion | Tags: American Values, Media bias, Opinion, President Donald Trump, Stuart J.

Senator Vin Gopal voted with his Trenton Democrat cronies last week in voting in favor of legislation that would keep candidates for President and Vice President off the ballot in New Jersey unless they disclose five years of tax returns . Gopal also voted against an amendment to the bill that would have it apply to himself and his fellow legislators and the governor.
Assembly Members Joann Downey and Eric Houghtaling voted in favor of identical legislation—and against the amendment to have the bill apply to themselves—in 2017.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News, NJ Democrats | Tags: 2020 Presidential Politics, Chris Christie, Eric Houghtaling, Houghtaling and Downey, Joann Downey, Monmouth County News, President Donald Trump, Vin Gopal | 5 Comments »
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said that President Donald Trump will sign legislation to fund the government that includes much less funding for a wall for the southern border than he wants and simultaneously declare a national emergency to empower him to secure the border without funding authorized by congress, according to a report at The Hill.

By last count, Republicans lost at least 32 seats in the House in the midterm elections, and U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is once again poised to be elected House Speaker. This means all legislation will now have to be worked out between a Democratic House and a Republican Senate led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
To navigate these new waters in 2019, President Donald Trump has signaled a willingness to negotiate but he must remember that his greatest leverage could come in the House minority if he wishes to plot a more conservative path.admin | Filed under: Donald Trump, Opinion | Tags: Americans for Limited Government, OpEd, Opinion, President Donald Trump, Robert Romano | 3 Comments »

Trump-haters need to understand something… Growing up in New Jersey, I remember what New York City was like in the 70s and 80s. Rudy Giuliani went in there and cleaned it up and made it safe for everyone. Rudy was a brilliant politician, though I think when he was mayor he was on his third wife. But I didn’t support Giuliani for my father, I supported him for mayor because he got the job done.admin | Filed under: Donald Trump, Opinion | Tags: Joe Schilp, Opinion, President Donald Trump, Trump Accomplishments | 7 Comments »
