Update: Obama Loses His Building in Willingboro

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Obama and KidsIf Barack Obama can’t buy a vowel (or a building) in Willingboro, New Jersey, Save Jerseyans, then it’s time to hang it up.  Game over. The lamest of all lame ducks.

But that’s where he’s at today. After causing a national stir by moving to change its town center’s name from JFK to Obama, Willingboro’s council did an about-face on Tuesday night and rescinded its early August decision to rename the Kennedy Center.

Defiant Perry Rouses 3k Strong Dallas Crowd

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

rick perry“What does the American Dream mean to you?”

That’s the unofficial theme of this year’s ‘Defending the American Dream’ summit in Dallas, Texas hosted by Americans for Prosperity, Save Jerseyans, and I’m having a heck of a time discussing it with like-minded economic conservatives from around the country, but the small army of grassroots activists gathered at the onset of Labor Day Weekend aren’t debating definitions among themselves. They know what it means, and they very much believe it’s alive and well in the United States (notwithstanding an ongoing assault from the Left).

Their primary point of concern is its survival AND, refreshingly, what to constructively and proactively do about it.

Obama – and the Presidency – Hit Rock Bottom

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Angry ObamaPresident James Buchanan didn’t just failed to stop the Civil War, Save Jerseyans, for which I won’t condemn him because it was likely inevitable. He didn’t even try. In his State of the Union message to Congress, Buchanan gave a verbal shrug.

“All for which the slave States have ever contended, is to be let alone and permitted to manage their domestic institutions in their own way, Buchanan said. “As sovereign States, they, and they alone, are responsible before God and the world for the slavery existing among them. For this the people of the North are not more responsible and have no more right to interfere than with similar institutions in Russia or in Brazil.”

MacArthur Steps Up Air War

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

How long before the DCCC decides NJ-03 isn’t worth the money propping up a weak NJ-03 prospect in a toxic Obama backlash cycle, Save Jerseyans? Your guess is as good as mine, but today’s development might help them along.

Just days after the national Democrat congressional organization was, in an unprecedented move, forced to pull back an objectively slanderous TV ad aimed at Republican nominee Tom MacArthur, the GOP campaign is counter-punching with the second of a two-part counter-punch intended to blunt the impact of an estimated $100,000 per week Democrat television buy leading up to Labor Day Weekend:

Texas Travesty in Travis County

Perry – and Justice – Get “Delayed” By Vengeful Democrats

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Rick Perry Close-UpWe’ve seen this rodeo before, Save Jerseyans.

A prominent Texas Republican is indicted by a Travis County grand jury (the most liberal part of the state, containing Austin), only to be exonerated after conviction on appeal but only after, of course, his reputation was completely ruined.

That was former House Majority Leader Tom Delay back in 2013. Now it’s happening to Governor Rick Perry in 2014. Click here to read the indictment.

This time it’s even more ridiculous because the grand jury – which is allowed to consider hearsay and other evidence typically not admissible at trial – is indicting Perry not for something he stole, or misappropriated, or lied about, the usual garden variety political sins, but in response to his use of the governor’s veto power

New Poll: Obama Leading Dems To Defeat

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in GermanyA new, national McClatchy-Marist poll is out and it shows that President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections. Indeed, the potential repercussions of the president’s slide are serious.

Consider the following:

  • Just 40 percent of voters polled approve of the way Obama’s doing his job. This ties his worst mark in three years and the second worst of his presidency.

Obama To Pull Major Stunt Aug. 17 – 19?

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

ObamaPresident Obama is on the ropes.

His poll numbers are in the tank and Democrats are worried.

They’re clearly off their mark as the post Labor Day election season approaches. Indeed, all the signs point to significant gains by Republicans this November.

Now, reports are circulating that Obama has Something Big planned. He’ll be headed back to Washington from Martha’s Vineyard one week from today — Sunday, August 17. He’ll return to his elite vacation retreat on Tuesday, August 19.

That signals a Major Development, possibly announced by the president on Monday, August 18.

Willingboro Council’s Baseless Faith in Obama

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

john f kennedyYou may or may not have heard how, on Tuesday, Willingboro’s township council approved a resolution to rename its recreational hub from ‘The Kennedy Center’ to ‘The Obama Center’ going forward.

Yes, Save Jerseyans, there are still places in America where our distressingly incompetent and obnoxiously authoritarian 44th president . By way of background, Willingboro is 72.74% black and many residents were understandably proud when their country elected Barack Obama.

How they’re STILL proud is less easy to grasp.

Echoes of Obama in Helmetta

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

I’m not going to pass judgment on the substance of the incident behind this viral YouTube video, Save Jerseyans, where Helmetta, New Jersey Special Police Officer Richard Recine is seen telling a resident that, in his not-so-humble opinion, police don’t have to follow the U.S. Constitution because President Obama doesn’t follow it.

It’s now reportedly the subject of an internal affairs investigation. We’ll see where it goes. I want context; at first glance, I’m reminded of a recent incident where a frustrated border agent vented to a trucker about the state of our immigration system.

What I will say? Elections have consequences. My entire generation doesn’t think oral sex IS sex because, as Bill Clinton taught us as school children in the 90s, definitions are contingent upon the definition of the word “is.” In this case, we elected a man – Barack H. Obama, who continually demonstrates no respect for the rule of law. He may not believe in trickle down economics but we’re finding that his tyrannical approach to public affairs is, in fact, trickling down across the country in a million different, dangerous, scary ways that go well beyond health care and border control:

Another Poll Shows Bell Close to Booker (But He Needs Help!)

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

jeff bellCory Booker (D-Twitter) has every advantage in the world this cycle, Save Jerseyans, but we now have a fourth consecutive public polling report (this time from Quinnipiac) showing the freshman Dem in trouble, this time leading challenger Jeff Bell trailing by only 10-points, 47% to 37 percent, despite the fact that a full 77% of voters polled don’t feel as if they know enough about Bell to form an opinion.

Click here to see it.

It’s clear what’s happening here; the folks at Q also found that “President Barack Obama gets a negative 44 – 52 percent job approval rating, nearly matching his lowest rating ever in New Jersey, a negative 43 – 52 percent score in an October 13, 2011, Quinnipiac University poll.” Reuters recently discovered a similar result with 37% of New Jerseyans strongly disapproving of our Child President. The President’s polling collapse is horrible news for Dems nationally and politically-fatal news for N.J. Dem House challengers like Aimee Belgard in NJ-03 and Bill Hughes in NJ-02. If this keeps up, districts like NJ-12 could even come into serious play by October.

But Booker’s only in trouble if outside groups show up with $$$. This is your last chance, NRSC/SCF/Tea Party, etc. Get on board now and GROW THE MAP! We’ve got a race in New Jersey without anyone on our side spending a single dime… time to get in the game…

P.S. Check out my interview with Jeff Bell if you haven’t already.

Why the CIA Scandal Matters

By James Pezzullo | The Save Jersey Blog

The entrance of the CIA New Headquarters Building (NHB) of the George Bush Center for Intelligence

The entrance of the CIA New Headquarters Building (NHB) of the George Bush Center for Intelligence

Call me what you want – millennial, young voter, Generation X – but the key point is that I am young, Save Jerseyans.

I was born during the Clinton administration. I have no memories of the world before 9/11, and I became politically aware right around the time an unknown senator, ast name “Obama” pulled an upset victory in the 2008 Iowa Caucuses. My views are very much in line with the rest of my generation, and even though 60% of under-30 voters went for Obama in 2012, my generation – especially people my age and younger, who were largely uninfluenced by the Bush Administration – is not as liberal as it is made out to be.

We don’t fall within the traditional lines of Republican or Democrat.

Buyers’ Remorse

Now Americans Say They Want Romney

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Romney vs. ObamaGet this: Mitt Romney would win the popular vote if a rematch of the 2012 election against President Obama were held today, a new CNN/ORC poll shows.

According to the poll, if the 2012 election were held again today, Romney would receive 53% of the popular vote while Obama would receive only 44%, CNN reported. That’s quite a turnaround, especially when you consider that Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the actual election.

And there’s more interesting news in the poll:

Immigration Madness: Both Sides Stuck On Stupid

By Joe Schilp | Joe’s Blog

illegal immigrationThe lead sentence in a New York Times report on July 25, 2014,states:  “The vast majority of unaccompanied migrant children arriving in the United States from Central America this year have been released to relatives in states with large, established Central American populations.”

If you read just that sentence, the Times makes it seem as though almost all of these kids – who the Times refuses to call illegal, or even “undocumented” – are simply coming to be reunited with their family and that this is exactly what is happening, but this report is extremely deceiving.  For one, the Times is reporting on information released by Team Obama’s Office of Refugee Resettlement, which, if you continue to read the times article, admits that the “numbers do not include those children who are sent to long-term shelters.”

When the DREAM Becomes a Nightmare

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Border wall brownsvile illegal immigrationGovernor Chris Christie is as effective a speaker on the issues of taxes, entitlement reform and school choice as you’ll ever find, Save Jerseyans. Plain spoken but substantively on-point; the clarity with which he speaks makes apolitical Americans want to get up and follow him and good faith dissenters concede the logic of his argument.

The so-called “YouTube moments” concerning ^^ are what we remember and, at least until Sandy and Bridgegate, they’re what defined his brand. Just as often, however, Chris Christie talks like what he is by training: a lawyer. And I don’t mean that in a disparaging way (I am one!). All the same, it can get him into trouble.

Immigration comes to mind as a prominent example.
