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…

CBS News Poll: Bad News For Dems, Obama

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

PelosiThere’s a new CBS News poll out that has very bad news for President Obama and the Democrats.

But you have to drill all the way down into the poll’s figures to find the bad news.
Apparently, CBS doesn’t want you to find the negative figures but they’re there and they are stark.

Here’s what the poll says:

  • Only 29% of those surveyed think Obama’s policies have made America safer while a whopping 69% say his policies have made us less safe of have had no effect.

October Surprise: If Baghdad Falls…

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Baghdad_Red_zoneI was on my high school senior trip in Disney World when Baghdad fell to American forces during the Second Gulf War.

Now here we are, not even six full years into the Obama presidency, and the Pentagon is reportedly predicting that Baghdad WILL fall to ISIS insurgents in the coming weeks without the intervention of ground troops. It sure as heck doesn’t look like our allies are planning to do anything without our lead.

Can anyone say mission creep??? And so much for leading from behind! What a disaster. One that even hardened Democrats are openly admitting was avoidable.

You and I know what we SHOULD do here. The million-dollar compound question: what will Obama actually do? If anything? And how will his response (or non-response) impact the midterm elections if Baghdad falls before Americans vote?

America’s Security? We Warned You Six Years Ago!

By Dan Cirucci | The Save Jersey Blog

KidsRunningOnBeachX260We are now in a situation where it’s quite clear that we have a president and an administration that are complacent about America’s security.

In fact, on all fronts our security clearly seems threatened.
Russia and Putin are emboldened. The Middle East is in chaos. Isis is on the march and showing no signs of buckling. Militant Islam is stronger than ever, threatening world order at every turn. China and Russia are newly amorous and China is threatening offshore islands and ignoring pleas for democracy from Hong Kong. The Ebola virus has come to America. Millions of illegal immigrants continue to pour into our country as our borders remain porous. The Secret Service can’t seem to protect our own president much less carry out the other aspects of its job. Our privacy and freedoms are under siege from agencies of our own government including the IRS and the NSC. And, our traditional allies are now wary of America and unwilling to commit to new ventures.

Are you surprised? Are you?

We’re not.

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.
