MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Biden Coming to N.J. for Murphy Rally

Uncle Joe is coming to town! While most of New Jersey heads down the Shore or fires up the barbecue pits this Memorial Day Weekend, Save Jerseyans, former Vice President Joe Biden is ready to rally with Phil Murphy (D-Goldman Sachs). The rally (timed to coincide with a fundraiser) was announced earlier this month but […]

5 Critical N.J. Issues That Aren’t Getting Enough Attention This Primary Season

It’s hard to discuss the entire pie in a mailbox-sized postcard, 30-second ad or tightly-regulated debate format, Save Jerseyans, but as the 2017 primary season reaches the final mile, I’m going to be a pain in the ass and complain, ever-so gently, about the issues that Republicans should be talking more about both NOW and […]

Young Millennials are Waking Up to a Horrific Lesson in What Real Evil Looks Like

The death toll from Monday night’s apparent suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, U.K. now stands at 22,  Save Jerseyans, and the victims of this particular jihadist assault are children. Analysts have been dreading this day for some time. So-called “soft targets” like a pop concert or grade school obviously don’t have […]

FACT CHECK: No, There Isn’t Evidence Supporting Climate Change’s Role in Hurricane Sandy

For the second debate in a row last Thursday, Save Jerseyans, Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, preemptively positioning herself to the Left in anticipation of a blue state general election contest with Phil Murphy (D-Goldman Sachs), said some things with which your Blogger-in-Chief feels compelled to take issue. [Remember: this isn’t a “GOP” blog. We’re here […]

Hours Before Final Debate, Guadagno Campaign Alleges 2-to-1 Primary Polling Edge

What’s the TRUE state of the 2017 GOP gubernatorial primary race? He didn’t spill the numbers, Save Jerseyans, but in a pre-debate memorandum shared with state media, veteran Christie and Trump pollster Adam Geller claimed that his current client, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, is leading her N.J. GOP gubernatorial rivals by a 2-to-1 margin. How? “In the […]

What does Wayne mean for the LD40 race?

LD40 is one of the places where New Jersey political observers will have their eyes glued on Primary Election Night, Save Jerseyans. Partisan control of the district is unlikely to change hands in November. This battle is for control of the Northeastern New Jersey Republican party following the imminent retirement of long-time LD40 legislator Kevin […]

Phil Murphy’s Outrageous Campaign Spending: As Effective As Jeb Bush’s?

One of the most interesting story lines of New Jersey’s Election 2017 might ultimately prove to be how utterly ineffective (at least to date) the presumptive Democrat nominee’s campaign spending has been. Don’t take my word for it. Look at the numbers, Save Jerseyans, revealed in the recent ELEC findings. The GOP primary campaign of […]

The Miss USA Uproar Explained: Liberals Believe Conservative Women Aren’t Women!

I do NOT watch pageants, Save Jerseyans. Not because there’s anything wrong with them as a general matter. I’m simply a man of the pre-pajama boy era. Sorry if you’re triggered by my gender-normative attitude. You’ll survive. In any event, I did read some recaps of Sunday’s 2017 Miss USA competition in Las Vegas, and as with […]

Phil Murphy Can’t Be Allowed to Govern. Why? Ask A Democrat Who’d Know!

Presumptive Democrat gubernatorial nominee Phil Murphy (D-Goldman Sachs) would be a NIGHTMARE for New Jersey, folks. He’s to the Left of Karl Marx. His ideas for this state would curl a Castro’s hair.  If you’re a hard-blue Democrat undeterred by all of that?  Listen to one of your own – Democrat State Senator Ray Lesniak – […]

Citing Skyrocketing Cost Estimates, Guadagno Calls On Christie to Halt State House Renovations

A $450 million project cost overrun is reason enough for second look, right? Considering it’s 2.5-times more than was originally projected? There’s disagreement in the Administration on that point. After reports leaked that ongoing State House renovations could reach $750 million over the next 30 years — not the $300 million originally peddled to sell the deal — […]

WATCH: Town Hall Scumbags Heckle GOP Congressman For Discussing His Dead Daughter

My friend Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) did what an elected representative is supposed to do on Wednesday night, Save Jerseyans… Hosted a town hall, in a town inside his district that didn’t vote for the two-term congressman, and allowed constituents to hold him accountable for his central role in the latest health care reform effort.

ROONEY’S DEBATE RECAP: Dueling Tax Plans, RGGI Inexplicably Returns, and Christie Looms Large

So I was one of probably five (?) people watching last night’s NJTV-broadcasted GOP gubernatorial debate at Stockton University, Save Jerseyans, and, save for a few exceptionally stupid questions (more on that shortly), I found the clash between Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno and Jack Ciattarelli illuminating. There’s a LOT to discuss so let’s hit the […]

At tonight’s debate, some GOP education funding straight talk is long overdue

I don’t know if you’re following this nonsensical school funding “debate” between Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, Save Jerseyans, but it’s rich. It really is! Prieto, aligned with the New Jersey (Mis)education Association, wants to spend an inordinate amount of tax dollars ($125 million) right away on education funding. Sweeney? He wants to […]

Apparently Bruce WAS Born to Run (from the IRS)

So apparently Tom Hanks interviewed Bruce Springsteen at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City last Friday, Save Jerseyans, and “The Boss” made a startling admission: “First of all, I never met anyone in New Jersey who paid their taxes,” Springsteen reportedly told Hanks. “The entire state wasn’t paying any taxes. So, years went by and […]

ROONEY RANTS: Don’t Blame Trump For Trenton’s Inability to Cut Property Taxes!

It’s always easier to react than think these things through, Save Jerseyans, especially when you’re part of the problem. Exhibit A: the New Jersey-based reaction to President Donald Trump‘s plan to eliminate state and local deductions (as part of a global tax reform package) which could increase New Jersey residents’ average tax bills by more than $3,500. Democrat reactions have […]

N.J. legislator, father of seven hits back at Bill Nye: “Which of our kids are ‘extra?'”

Fake ‘science guy’ Bill Nye is making a lot of news these days, Save Jerseyans, and none of it is flattering. The worst to date? Endorsing Communist China-style population control. Our good friend Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-26) had something to say about that via Facebook on Thursday afternoon: a question posed to the former children’s show host […]
