Save Jersey salutes each and every U.S. soldier who has courageously served their country and the cause of human freedom since the American Revolution and, in a very special way, the sons and daughters of New Jersey who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice:

I think Jay Carney officially has the worst job in the country right now, Save Jerseyans.
I’d really hate to be him these days and I’m pretty sure he’d gratefully trade his post for a Save Jersey blogging slot if given the opportunity!
The September 12, 2012 attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi resulted in a senseless loss of American lives, lives that were there to serve our country and protect our interests. They sacrificed themselves for their country. But their government let them down.
Their government decided to ignore their pleas for more safety and security measures. Their government decided to delete logistical details that would have compromised its position and message to the American people after the attack. Their government betrayed them, their memory and the American public. We now, FINALLY, have proof of this, and it is very likely that more will emerge in the near future.
You just can’t spin this, Mr. Carney. No communications degree is going to help you out here.
Media bias allegations aren’t just some straw man to give conservative talking heads material, Save Jerseyans. It’s now one of the most pervasive problems facing the United States today.
True; there’s always been political bias in the media all the way back to the Election of 1800! It’s just never been this one-sided and activist at the same time. That’s detrimental to the democrats process.
Those are just recent examples. I’ve gotan archive full of’em here at Save Jersey. And since most modern citizens can’t be counted on to do their own homework, what the mainstream media says goes for a large percentage of the population. Enough to swing elections and affect our country’s trajectory.
For the past fifty years, the United States has placed an all-encompassing economic embargo upon Cuba, hoping that such a policy would ultimately force liberalization reforms in the Castro-led Marxist state, though how such a policy would achieve these ends has always been unclear.
Proponents of the trade embargo argue that cooperation with the Cuban government—and likewise, any relaxation of existing laws—would represent implicit support for an illiberal regime, one that is firmly committed to ideals that are wholly un-American. Despite this—and despite the fact that concerns for human and civil right in Cuba remain quite high—the reality that the trade embargo against Cuba has failed miserably in delivering democratization to Cuba, and likewise, has increased state-led organizational opposition to American policy abroad, is indeed quite well established.
Ultimately, the United States embargo against Cuba has harmed American and foreign economic interests, the American and Cuban peoples—and most importantly—has not brought forth the fall of the Castro regime. Simply put, the trade embargo against Cuba has been among the most ill-advised and least effective foreign policy initiatives of the United States government in her long history—the time for the United States to reverse the policy is long overdue.
The United States imposed trade embargo against Cuba, though seemingly a matter of bilateral concern, has had serious negative consequence for the United States on the global scale.
Multiple sources are reporting that Senator Bob Menendez (D-Dominican Republic) is holding up a vote on a resolution honoring the late Margaret Thatcher; he is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
Margaret Thatcher was a dynamic force as an ally to the United States in winning the cold War and overcoming the despotism and repression suffered by hundreds of millions at the hands of Soviet communism. She was a persuasive, transformative leader who shaped world events with the power of her personality. A grocer’s daughter, she was known, affectionately and deservedly as “The Iron Lady. Margaret Thatcher’s life and legacy of leadership will endure for many generations to come. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and with the people of Great Britain and the world as we mourn her passing.”
We will lay to rest a truly great “iron” lady on Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, who once said of Parliament, “I love argument. I love debate. I don’t expect anyone just to sit there and agree with me – that’s not their job.”
