  • The American Jewish Community Should Join the GOP

    By Joshua A. Sotomayor-Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog The recent Gaza War has demonstrated that the era of bipartisan support for Israel is over. Republicans overwhelmingly sided with Israel, while Democratic leaders hemmed and hawed over every conceivable statement calculated to alienate the least amount of radical far-left, anti-Israel activists. From Hillary Clinton’s justification of […]


  • Interview with the Libertarian

    By Joshua A. Sotomayor-Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog Save Jerseyans, you may recall that in June I had the pleasure of debating Dorit Goikhman, Vice Chair of the NJ Libertarian Party and her party’s nominee for the House of Representative in CD 6, in a forum sponsored by the Hudson County Republican Club (HudsonRepublicans.com).

  • Understanding the ISIS Crisis

    By Joshua Sotomayor-Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog “Yet today, with Sunni jihadists pushing towards Baghdad, Iraq looks less like a Middle Eastern “City on a Hill” than a sectarian thugocracy, rapidly degenerating into a dystopian hellscape.” - Gene Healy, Washington Examiner “…there’s little reason that America should get involved in Iraq’s ongoing sectarian war yet again.”  - […]

  • Christie Takes On Fortress America

    By Joshua Sotomayor-Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog On Sunday evening, I had the pleasure of attending the “Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala” in New York hosted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach.

  • Paul’s Foreign Policy Problem

    By Joshua Sotomayor-Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog Senator Rand Paul was, until recently, a serious contender for the GOP Presidential nomination but his recent piece in the National Review Online demonstrates why a President Paul would leave a lot to be desired, Save Jerseyans. The Kentucky Senator, heir to the libertarian dynasty founded by his father, has been making […]

  • U.S. Options to Turn Back Putin’s Russia

    By Joshua Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog In the short term, the de facto annexation of the Crimea (and possibly more of Ukraine) by Comrade-Czar Putin will have little to no ramification for US national interests, Save Jerseyans. In the long term, however, it emboldens totalitarian regimes everywhere and many, though not all, harbor expansionist dreams. One […]


  • Meet John Sebik

    By Joshua Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog Bayonne, NJ – Team Zanowic, the fiscally responsible slate for Bayonne Mayor and city council, are practicing the big tent coalition building in which GOPer’s everywhere should be engaged.

  • Fending Off Progressive Fables

    By Joshua Einstein | The Save Jersey Blog “You wouldn’t be here if not for progressive policy.” – Unknown NJ mass transit commuter At some point in November 2013, Save Jerseyans, I was handing out cards advocating against a NJ ballot initiative calling for a minimum wage amendment to the NJ State constitution that would require yearly minimum […]
