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!

Guest Op-Ed: Voting for Murphy-Oliver? You qualify as an economic masochist.

I have always liked the The Speaker emerita; despite the antics and outrages of leftists, the personal is not the political, and one does not need to personally despise those who disagree.

OPINION: Leonard Lance Needs a Clearer View of the Contact Lens Debate

I have always been a big fan of Rep. Leonard Lance. In fact, just a couple of months ago, I wrote on this very website about his principled stand on Internet privacy. But it is my belief that his stance on a new Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rule will allow consumers to continue to be […]
