Visualizing Phil Murphy’s Reckless #WarOnMath (and N.J. Taxpayers)

Sometimes a visual speaks far louder than words, Save Jerseyans, and who doesn’t love graphs/charts? So here is a visual representation of the tax/spending plans, to date, of 2018 New Jersey gubernatorial nominee Phil Murphy (D-Goldman Sachs): – That barely noticeable blue column represent the revenues  – $1.3 billion – Phil plans to bring in […]

HE’S BACK: Lonegan’s CD5 announcement planned for Thursday

Steve Lonegan is back in the hunt, Save Jerseyans. This time? He’s running for the seat formerly held by Scott Garrett. According to an invitation received by Save Jersey (and subsequently confirmed by a source close to Lonegan), the former Bogota Mayor’s announcement of a 2018 New Jersey 5th Congressional District campaign is planned for […]

Booker wants to remove Confederate statues. Will his ambition doom the Dems?

Polling data is dropping fast and furious, Save Jerseyans, and surprise surprise, strong majorities of Americans do not support ripping down Confederate monuments. 62% according to a PBS/NPR/Marist survey; 86% of those polled simultaneously condemned white supremacy. But good old Cory Booker (D-Twitter) isn’t running to lead Americans past all of this nonsense. He’s running […]

MUST LISTEN: Rep. MacArthur obliterates socialism, single-payer in 2 minutes

Congressman Tom MacArthur (R, NJ-03) fielded a particularly angry call this week during a radio appearance on the topic of single-payer health care. The GOP legislator’s answer? An amazing, articulate OBLITERATION of socialist/single-payer ideology.  Watch and please share: –

Photo of the Week: Rallying against hate (and conventional spelling) in A.C.

So Councilman Kaleem Shabazz (who I’m told is a relatively cool dude – he’s a Chris Brown booster) held an anti-hate press conference in Atlantic City on Wednesday, Save Jerseyans, in the wake of the Charlottesville kerfuffle. Sadly? Not every attendee was up for the challenge of an elevated debate: – “ATLATIC” [sp] and a […]

This N.J. Democrat said something REALLY stupid about a Vietnam Veteran

Andrew Zwicker is an American physicist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and a first term Assemblyman from New Jersey’s 16th Legislative District. Brought into office in 2015 not on his own merits but with a huge last-minute influx of special interest cash, he’s exactly the sort of yuppie Democrats in the Princeton area love to […]

In case you missed it, ANTIFA is an officially designated domestic terror group in N.J.

Before Charlottesville flipped the script? Even liberal rags like The Atlantic were beginning to discuss the rise of a “violent Left” embodied by the group “Antifa,” a radical, far-Left outgrowth of the Occupy Movement of the 2000s supportive of Marxist economic policies. Reporters on the ground in Charlottesville saw that Antifa was spoiling for a […]

Murphy embraces white slave owner (!) to accuse others of racism. Is this how we win the future?

It’s easy to forget in the noisy aftermath that last weekend’s Charlottesville fiasco began with a fight over a Confederate monument, Save Jerseyans. No one was there to protest a particular law or governmental edict. Fringe factions clashed over publicly displayed… history. Put another way, they were there to force a confrontation over something immutable […]

Georgetown/MSNBC commentator: Camden, N.J. spends too much on police, not enough on schools

The Left’s anti-police rhetoric has reached a fever pitch ever since the domestic terrorist group “Black Lives Matter” entered the conversation, Save Jerseyans. We’re all familiar with the rhetoric: Cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, and Newark would be peaceful, prosperous, multi-cultural utopias were it not for the racist, evil men and women in blue! That’s what […]

So is Guadagno down 9 points? Or 27?

The best answer,  Save Jerseyans? Probably somewhere in between as we all race towards Labor Day and the unofficial start of the “real” campaign season but maybe a little better for Guadagno than initially meets the eye. Our last public survey in the 2017 race for New Jersey Governor came out about a month ago, […]

Let’s talk Westerosi politics (which is less crazy than New Jersey politics) for a minute

It’s a rainy, hazy Monday in August, Save Jerseyans. Who wants to talk about New Jersey politics? I’d much prefer opining on Westerosi politics. After all, even with all of the carnage, magic, evil and incest… it’s still a little less crazy and incredible than Garden State politics. Some thoughts from last night’s Game of […]

Why isn’t anyone calling out Phil Murphy for hiding his math?

When you’re in grade school, Save Jerseyans? Learning how to do math? You might “lose points” on your exam for failing to “show your work.” So how the hell is Phil Murphy (D-Goldman Sachs), the 2017 New Jersey Democrat gubernatorial nominee, getting away with hiding his math in this year’s high-stakes gubernatorial election?  It’s a […]

“Christian” N.J. parents teach their child that God… screwed him up?

The UK Daily Mail has an article up about a New Jersey “Christian” family (I’ll explain the quotation marks in a minute) who embraced their 10-year old son’s decision to transition to a girl. You’ve seen this story before in different forms. The twist? Dad is some sort of pastor so, Save Jerseyans, very predictably, […]

Christie told you half of the ‘affordability crisis’ story. Here’s the other half.

Chris Christie visited NJ 101.5 for ‘Ask the Governor’ last night, Save Jerseyans, his monthly soap box designed for interaction between the vox populi and its highest state-based elected official (whenever, of course, he’s actually here). It’s rarely boring and, sometimes, a little instructive for those of us who try to keep a close eye […]

Guadagno’s running mate, a Cuban immigrant, thinks the Dem ticket sounds too much like what he left behind

2017 N.J. Gubernatorial candidate Kim Guadagno‘s running mate Carlos Rendo knows what far-left economics can do to families. His own family escaped such a regime, about 90 miles off the coast of Florida. Running this year for statewide office, the Bergen County mayor told supporters at today’s announcement of his candidacy that the Murphy-Oliver Democrat […]

LD38 Dems shouldn’t throw stones in their glass house

LD38 Democrats had a bit of fun this week mocking their Republican counterparts, Save Jerseyans, after the GOP failed to get a quorum to replace traitorous former Assembly candidate Matt Seymour. Forces backing Glen Rock Councilman Bill Leonard couldn’t turn out enough voters. Another convention is in the offing, but yeah, it’s a little embarrassing […]
