Five years post-Sandy, Jersey Shore’s Luna leads relief mission to Harvey-battered Texas

Frank Luna is best known to (most) of our readers as a prominent NJGOP operative and charmingly unapologetic and plain-talking Jersey Shore partisan who canvasses on a skateboard and rocks a mane that would put the Duck Dynasty cast to shame.

Twenty Texas representatives opposed the Sandy aid package a few years back; no one should be surprised that that decision elicited a strong response from Chris Christie on Monday as Harvey continued to pound the Houston region: But will a future Harvey bill contain the same level of pork barrel spending that characterized the Sandy […]

Climate Scientist Says Global Warming ‘Worsened’ Hurricane Harvey. Did It?

Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann said Sunday that, while global warming didn’t cause Hurricane Harvey, it surely “worsened” the effects of the storm through higher sea levels and increased atmospheric moisture. Mann’s explanation, however, goes against the prevailing evidence of global warming’s measured impacts on storms. Many climate scientists have been careful not to […]


FYI America: Urban Democrat leadership is (still) dangerous to your health

Houston-area allies of that grand Texas city’s Democrat mayor, Sylvester Turner (pictured above), now claim evacuating ahead of Hurricane Harvey would’ve been “nonsensical” notwithstanding the fact that everyone KNEW super-flat Houston was in danger from heavy rains. Residents were told to bunker down and avoid protective action: Ignore unfounded, unsourced weather predictions that have needlessly frightened Houstonians. Get […]

What snow? Shore, South Jersey dodge blizzard smacking rest of N.J.

A 40 to 50 mile shift in a low pressure system over the ocean has made a big difference in how much snow South Jersey and the Jersey Shore will receive from the nor’easter. That’s likely to result in a major change in snow totals for southern counties as the rain-snow line has pushed much […]


Price Gouging: Inexcusable Greed or Capitalism Working?

New Jersey’s Attorney General is warning state residents of price gouging today, Save Jerseyans, as this late-winter Nor’easter pounds our state. There are laws on the books (which they sometimes enforce).
