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.


“Those People Deserve to Have Their Heads Taken Off”

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

I was the first to discuss Team Christie’s bid to revive the GOP’s “compassionate conservatism” strategy since, as you well know, Save Jersey was tracking Chris Christie’s every move before it was cool. You’re welcome.

The mainstream types are starting to clue in. Wednesday’s “CBS This Morning” ran an interview featuring Gayle King interviewing Chris Christie; his Tuesday heroin event in Newark was the primary topic but his weight, 2016, President Obama’s handling of ISIS (hint: CJC isn’t impressedand the Guv’s attitude (or said another way, how he chooses when it’s appropriate to dole out Christie-style verbal wrath and retribution) inevitably entered into the discussion…

Watch below the fold:


Clinton Leads Christie By 10 in N.J.

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

hillary-clinton-and-chris-christieThat’s according to the latest Quinnipiac Poll, Save Jerseyans.

Garden State women are the decisive factor in Clinton’s 10-point leads (50% to 40%); while Christie narrowly wins New Jersey men, 46% to 43%, women go for Clinton by a staggering 20-point margin, 56% to 36%, and Clinton posts a significant yet much smaller leader among the crucial independent voter category (46% to 40%).

“Gov. Christopher Christie gives former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton more of a battle in New Jersey, but a huge lead among women voters keeps the lady from Chappaqua, New York, ahead of the home- state governor,” said Maurice Carroll, the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.


The Q poll surveyed 1,475 registered New Jersey voters between 9/25 and 9/29 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.

Hillary’s Worshipful Letters to Alinsky Revealed

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Hillary and ObamaBelow find the complete text of a worshipful letter that Hillary Clinton wrote in 1971 to left-wing radical Saul Alinsky.

Through their correspondence, Hillary had already come to be on a first name basis with one of the most notorious leftists in America.

This previously unpublished correspondence between Clinton and Alinsky reveals new details about the relationship between the two and sheds light on her early ideological development.

In fact, Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968.


‘The View’ Ladies Want Christie to Run

Would You Support Christie’s Run?

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Questions remain but, it could be argued, Governor Chris Christie gets a little stronger every day that the U.S. Attorney’s office is silent.

But a clean Bridgegate “bill of health” is only part of the equation. A recent poll showed the Governor close to even with Hilldawg right here in N.J. He still needs to get through a primary first. Folks like you will be voting, and you know him best… so… vote and leave a cogent comment below explaining your vote…

Anti-Colonialism Aside, Obama Endorses U.K. via Twitter

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

Colonialism Défense de Rorke's DriftPresident Barack Obama is an ideological guy, Save Jerseyans. No one disputes that. And his far-left worldview makes him predisposed to blame most of the world’s problems on the colonial powers (and their progeny – like us). Consider his ill-fated backing for the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammad Morsi in Egypt. Morsi’s predecessor was propped up by western powers (primarily us) and, to the President, that meant he was worthy of deposition. Look how that turned out.

So was the President mugged by global reality (or taking leave of his instincts) prior to tweeting THIS:


Polls Auger Well For GOP This November

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Obama in EgyptThe latest polls show President Obama’s approval at a new low – 38%.

That’s the verdict from the respected Gallup poll. And, as if that wasn’t bad enough, the same poll shows that nearly 60% of those surveyed disapprove of the president’s job performance so far.

And there’s more bad news from a just-released NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows Obama’s approval rating for foreign policy is at a new low of 30%

The poll also found that 47% believe the country is less safe than it was before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks—up sharply from 28% just one year ago.

And thats not the half of it. Consider the following:


Analyzing Christie’s Mexico Adventure

Christie greets children in Mexico

Christie greets children in Mexico

His trade trip down Mexico way appears to have been a success, at least on the points.

But is it good enough? In terms of what he needed to accomplish heading into a presidential cycle? As with many things in Christie World these days, Save Jerseyans, there is no honest conclusion to be states at the moment. We just don’t know. Not yet.

The good: looking presidential by visiting another country, energetically meeting with heads of state, knowledgeably talking up free trade and forcefully (and convincingly) arguing for North American energy independence (and Keystone, by name) are all net positives for most elements of the GOP base. His decision to invoke Putin on foreign soil is a well-calculated attempt to contrast his tough-guy chops with that of the current POTUS (I’ve said before it may be his strongest play). 


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.”


Obama ‘Detached?’ Guess Who Pegged It First…

By Dan Cirucci | Dan Cirucci’s Blogspot

Barack ObamaIn the wake of his failure to act or even say very much in response to recent horrific events and considering his frequent vacations and golf outings, everybody’s now talking about how President Obama seems detached, bored, disinterested and certainly disengaged from his job and the nation as a whole.

Even the usually adoring Maureen Dowd of the usually gushing New York Times has now been forced to admit that Obama is, by his own choice “a man alone” and she concludes: The president who was elected because he was a hot commodity is now a wet blanket.”

A hot commodity?



The Poll That’s Bad News for Almost Everyone

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog

rand paul…except for Rand Paul?

We got new polling results this past week, Save Jerseyans, showing Hillary Clinton with a lead over her hypothetical Republican opponents – including our own Governor Chris Christie – but her lead was significantly reduced after a summer of relatively negative headlines compounded by a weaker-than-expected book tour.

I agree that it’s objectively bad new for Hillary, just not in the way that most media outlets are reporting it. This poll also isn’t necessarily good news for the Republican Party.


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.
