Christie’s Ebola Nurse Antagonist goes bike riding as DOD contradicts her!

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

This lady is a real trip, Save Jerseyans!

I’ve spoken to the nurses in my life since Kaci “the Brat” Hickox‘s story went viral; not one of them thinks it’s unreasonable, after an extended journey to Africa interacting one-on-one with Ebola patients, for a health care worker to spend 3-weeks in a hospital (or at home) to guarantee that this deadly virus doesn’t spread.

It’s not hard for anyone who isn’t a narcissist to understand why.

Christie on Hickox’s Quarantine: “If it’s good enough for our men and women in uniform…”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Yessss! More unassailable logic (and strong words directed at the Obama Administration) from Governor Chris Christie during Wednesday’s multi-county Sandy anniversary tour as the media continues to entertain the extended-temper tantrum of nurse Kaci “the Brat” Hickox:

Christie on NBC: “CDC was behind on this”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

There are a lot of lies floating around out there right now about Governor Chris Christie, Save Jerseyans, lately on both the Ebola and RGA fronts, but we’ll continue to police the B.S. as best we can. 

Of course, Gov. Christie didn’t need any help from us this morning on the Today Show:

Governor Christie: “I Did Not Reverse Any Decision”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

El Rushbo and the rest of the chattering close are wrong on this one.

I explained earlier Monday how Governor Chris Christie had, contrary to sloppy media reports, NOT reversed himself re: the Ebola quarantine/Kaci Hickox, Save Jerseyans, but since (1) propping up Obama and (2) ripping down Christie is a major media obsession, here’s the man himself, setting the record straight, on the trail with Rick Scott in battleground Florida:

GOP Will Take A Beating Nov. 4, No Matter What

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

ElephantsNo matter how the November 4 mid-term elections turn out the GOP will take it on the chin.

They’ll take a beating.

You bet they will.

No, not necessarily at the polls. That’s not what we’re talking about.

The Republicans will take a beating from the biased, dominant media — the three big networks, the New York Times, New Yorker, MessNBC, Washington Post, LA Times, PBS, NPR, etc. etc. – that whole crowd.

Here’s what the imitative, dominant, unithink media will say:

Ebola Czar: “Overpopulation” is #1 Concern

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

And I suppose Ebola is the result of global warming?

I’m losing my patience with these morons, Save Jerseyans! While Gov. Chris Christie is trying to keep us all alive, we’re learning that Obama-appointed Ebola Czar Ron Klain has different priorities (from 2008):

Christie on Fox News Sunday: “CDC eventually will come around to our point of view on this”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

christie fox news sundayGovernor Chris Christie once again managed to place himself at the center of the national conversation this week, Save Jerseyans, but this time it had nothing to do with RGA campaigning, lane closures or assorted other Christie mainstream media topics de jure.

Appearing on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, the Big Guy defended his decision (in conjunction with Andrew Cuomo) to institute a mandatory Ebola quarantine, a step to which he boldly (and characteristically) insists “the CDC eventually will come around to our point of view” even if the first quarantined individual feels inconvenienced (rolls eyes)…

Christie, Cuomo Buck Obama’s CDC on Ebola

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

There’s little doubt that the Obama Administration’s weak sauce screening procedures resulted in New York’s first Ebola case, Save Jerseyans. Governors Chris Christie (R-NJ) and Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) got together on Friday to go further than the Commander-in-Chief, further even than Christie went earlier in the week, by instituting a mandatory quarantine.

It’s the right thing to do. It’s a sign, regardless of how you may feel about either governor, that they’ve got cojones (unlike our president). And don’t think both men, shrewd politicians, aren’t acutely aware of the contrast…

Christie Rocks Pancake House for Hogan

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Democrats are busy playing defense with two weeks left to go before America votes, Save Jerseyans, but Governor Chris Christie’s RGA tried to expand its target map on Tuesday by sending the chairman to a pancake house in deep blue Maryland  (he was in DC for a Chamber of Commerce keynote) to stump for gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan, a Republican who appears to be closing the gap.

And no, before you ask, he never touched a pancake…

Christie to Chamber: “I’m tired of hearing about the minimum wage”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

christie staring at town hallGov. Chris Christie was in one of his blunt moods at Tuesday’s U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform’s 15th Annual Legal Reform Summit in Washington, D.C., Save Jerseyans, letting the audience gathered to hear his keynote address know, in no uncertain terms, that he’s “tired” of minimum wage proponents behaving as if raising it is an elixir for America’s economic ills.

“Is that what parents aspire to for our children?” Christie, according to The Hill, told a large H Street crowd. “They aspire to a greater, growing America, where their children have the ability to make much more money and have much great success than they have, and that’s not about a higher minimum wage.”

Email Shocker: House Majority PAC Concedes 2014

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

white flagIt’s not unusual for party leaders to stay quiet when things are going badly, Save Jerseyans, which makes me wonder exactly how bad things are actually getting for national Democrats this cycle.

DCCC chief Steve Israel is openly venting his frustrations to the press. Weird. DNC head Debbie Wasserman Schultz may be a total nut job, but her stubborn “we’re going to hold the line” attitude is what you’d ordinarily expect from a party leader.

What really raised my eyebrows? Today’s House Majority PAC email ostensibly authored by former DNC Chairman Howard Dean…

Rove Drops $600k on Belgard’s Head

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

National Republicans are moving to shore up their position in takeover and open seats at this point in the 2014 midterm game, Save Jerseyans, while the Democrats continue to fall back.

The latest here at home? Crossroad GPS, a 501(c)(4) nonprofit corporation associated with Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, just put $600,000 behind this TV spot in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District:

Christie’s Most Important Election?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

christie iowaWhile the GOP may be favored to capture the Senate and expand its House majority on November 4th, Save Jerseyans, gains in our nation’s governor mansions appear to be more elusive.

It’s complicated. To be fair, RGA Chairman Chris Christie had his work cut out for him from day numero uno. Big time. Unlike the Senate picture, this year’s gubernatorial battleground map is heavy on Republican defenses. How heavy? No less than nine GOP incumbents are running for reelection in states where Barack Obama won in both 2008 and 2012. An all-but-certain GOP loss in Pennsylvania coupled with a narrow but real Democrat edge in Maine have, cumulatively, kept New Jersey’s Governor on the road, almost constantly, visiting diners and raising money.

So this morning, Gov. Christie will wrap up a retail stop with Jeff Bell in Morris County and depart immediately thereafter for Kansas and Colorado and then, on Tuesday, he visits Maryland, Illinois and Michigan.

But make no mistake about it: the urgency felt by Team Christie extends well-beyond the sky-high stakes of Election 2014.

CNN Profiles South Jersey’s Shyanne Roberts

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Shyanne Roberts

Shyanne Roberts

10-year old ccompetitiveshooter Shyanne Roberts, a Gloucester County native, has gone mega-viral – perhaps that’s an understatement of sorts – since Save Jersey first posted her Trenton committee testimony back in the spring.

Now she’s quite literally everywhere, Save Jerseyans; this Friday, she was profiled by CNN in a stunningly-balanced look at children and firearms, and Shyanne made the case (without even trying to be political, I suspect, given her age) that gun violence is predominately a cultural problem, one which gun control laws as we currently conceive of them are ill-equipped to address.

“I want to be an inspiration to other kids and be a leader,” Shyanne told CNN. “Kids and guns don’t always mean bad things happen.”

She rocks! And she’s one of our own, so you can support her and keep up with Shyanne’s travels, competitions and pro-2A musings here on her official Facebook fan page.
