  • Lincoln’s Birthday in New Jersey? A Complicated Legacy

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog We’re coming up on Presidents Day Weekend, Save Jerseyans, which, if we’re being honest, I’ve always thought was more than a little stupid as a concept. That’s neither here nor there. Not only do we gyp both Lincoln and Washington by forcing our two greatest presidents to […]


  • Dick Cheney is coming to New Jersey

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog On the same day that we learned Assemblyman Jay Webber is joining the Reagan Ranch Board of Governors of Young America’s Foundation, Save Jerseyans, a prestigious group that includes former Reagan Administration like former Attorney General Edwin Meese and Governor George Allen, we also learned that the headliner for this year’s […]


  • The ONE Leader America Could Use Right Now

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot The world seems in a state of upheaval. In fact, we can’t remember the last time things seems this chaotic.

  • Historic Snow: Remembering Some of New Jersey’s Worst Winter Weather

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Milk! Bread! Eggs! Ahhhhhh! Hype is already building for this week’s alleged “historic” winter storm, Save Jerseyans, and if these snow total projections from the National Weather Service ultimately prove accurate, it could be one of the most disruptive in U.S. history: No one who saw the “Great White […]


  • The State of an Ingrate

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Last night, appropriately, President Barack Obama ended his second-to-last State of the Union address by celebrating “the country that gave him a chance.” I agree it’s what makes us great, Save Jerseyans! No doubt about it. There aren’t many countries on the planet where a guy with this President’s […]


  • Lesniak Gets Microaggressive with Joni Ernst

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog New Jersey State Senator Ray Lesniak, noted Clinton ally and pig protector, is 100% intolerant when it comes to intolerance, Save Jerseyans. I mean, he’s a member of something called the Coalition Against Hate and Bigotry, and no one raised a bigger stink when Don Imus put his foot […]


  • Lance, MacArthur Offer Prerebuttals of #SOTU

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog President Barack Obama will deliver his second-to-last (there’s a silver-lining!) State of the Union Address on Tuesday night, Save Jerseyans, and consistent with this reputation for stubborn ideological behavior and extreme partisan brinksmanship, the President will propose… tax hikes and “free” college. All at a time when […]


  • What a real State of the Union sounds like

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog It’s been so long since we’ve heard one, Save Jerseyans… This is a contrast worth remembering (especially when you consider how the economy has only grown 12.9% under President Obama’s stewardship in the 21 months since the recession hit its lowest point whereas it grew 28.4% over the same time […]


  • Republicans Need to Stop Wasting MLK Day

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog If Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was alive and well today, Save Jerseyans?

  • Fifteen People Who Should Disappear In 2015

    By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot Let’s face it: Some people have really overstayed their welcome this year. They’ve simply been in our faces far too much. Some of them have been around a long time, some not so long. Some are clearly past the pinnacle of whatever degree of achievement they were ever going to […]


  • Let’s Not Become the Party of Nasty, Okay?

    By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Pursuing the social media Christmas greetings of leading Republicans this year, Save Jerseyans, I noticed a distinct pattern in the comments: nastiness. Just one sample: The stuff on Mitch McConnell’s wall is even worse. Serious question: What the hell is wrong with some of you??? It’s Christmastime! Relax. It’d […]
