    The Hill ^ | 10/17/19 | Justine Coleman
    A first-generation American on Thursday launched his campaign for Sen. Cory Booker's (D-N.J.) Senate seat. Rik Mehta, a pharmacist and lawyer whose parents came to the U.S. before he was born, will run as a Republican against Booker, whom he criticizes as having left New Jersey behind to run for the White House. "In a few weeks, when Cory Booker is done showboating around Iowa and dropping out of the presidential race, he'll run back to New Jersey to pretend he cares about all of us he left behind," Mehta said in his campaign video. "The difference this time: He'll...

    "Hitler took a long time to get where he was and he had to do a lot of other things. Trump is going much faster," Christie Whitman says Christie Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, deleted a tweet in which she said Adolf Hitler "has nothing on" President Donald Trump, but in an exclusive interview with NBC New York, she says she stands by her statement. Her tweet was a response to the New York Times' report about a graphic and violent parody video that depicts a likeness of the president shooting and stabbing political opponents and members...

    Former Gov. Christie Whitman says she stands by a tweet she deleted in which she compared President Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. The Republican tweeted Hitler "has nothing on" Trump. Whitman's tweet was in response to reports that a violent parody video depicting a likeness of Trump shooting and stabbing opponents and members of the media was played during a conference at his Miami golf resort. Whitman tells WNBC-TV in New York the comparison was "inflammatory", but she hoped the shock value would make people realize the severity of the situation. Whitman says she is "really frightened for the country."...

    A New Jersey professor suggested on a TV program that racism and President Donald Trump’s policies are responsible for black female obesity. Rutgers University women’s and gender studies professor Brittney Cooper made the argument during an appearance on “Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network. "I hate when people talk about Black women being obese," Cooper said on the program. "I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create." "We are living in the Trump era," the professor said. "And look, those policies kill our...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    "The Five" discussed Monday whether or not Democrats are underestimating President Trump and his ability to connect with voters. Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera made the case that the president's Friday rally showed that he will be "formidable." "I'm telling you no Democrat could match that enthusiasm, even with Beyonce they couldn't get their kind of a crowd and keep that crowd for as long as he did," Geraldo said Monday. "He had them spellbound. He is a master performer." Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., during a Friday night rally in Louisiana, saying "Nancy Pelosi hates the United...

    (CNN) — Tuesday night's CNN/The New York Times debate stage will feature a record 12 candidates. It could be the last debate appearance for up to 33% of them. Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke are all in deep danger of not making November's debate. That means Tuesday may be the last chance fo those four to give their campaigns a realistic chance to have a measure of success. Fundraising and polling qualification thresholds have been bumped up once again for November's debate. Jumping...

    Mike Bloomberg has indicated to associates in recent weeks that Joe Biden’s recent struggles are making him rethink his decision to stay out of the 2020 Democratic primary, according to people familiar with the discussions. “Bloomberg is in if Biden is out,” says one source. Biden has not indicated any desire to drop out any time soon. Bloomberg could be in for a showdown with Elizabeth Warren, whether he runs or not, as he has been one of her biggest critics on the Democratic side. “I think it’s something he wants. He has not been shy about that,” one of...

    Natural gas developers in Pennsylvania are hoping a recent water quality report by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission could squelch plans for a fracking ban that’s currently being considered by the neighboring Delaware River Basin Commission. The SRBC’s Remote Water Quality Monitoring Network report, which was released last month, revealed that water quality scores at 14 of the 16 stations in the basin were in the “good” or “excellent” categories According to a fact sheet from the Susquehanna commission, the monitoring stations are located in areas where active drilling takes place, as well as areas free of development, in order...

    A 26-year-old woman with dual American and Israeli citizenship who has been jailed in Russia since April after authorities allegedly found nine grams of cannabis in her luggage, has been sentenced to seven and a half years in prison, her sister said. Naama Issachar's sister, Liad Gold, told Fox News on Sunday that her sister was sentenced Friday and the family has reached out to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for her. She said the prime minister called their mother the day of the sentencing to let her know that he will do everything he can to have her released...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/07/2019 | Frank Friday
    To say the drive-by media have circled the wagons for Joe Biden is putting it mildly.  Every day, in print and on their TV broadcasts, they thunder that there is no evidence!  He broke no laws when his son raked off millions of dollars from China and Ukraine for no-show jobs.  Even New Jersey's most famous traffic judge seems to be confused.  A guy in Ukraine also posits that Biden broke no laws there, either, as if there were really any laws to break in that wild West corruption show. But as an American lawyer, who often has to advise public officials on state and federal ethics...

    GLASSBORO, N.J. (KYW Newsradio) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy talked with business leaders at a meeting at Rowan University on the one year anniversary of his long term economic plan for the state. Murphy promised a cold, hard assessment of things. While most of the talk centered on improvements his administration’s made, there were a couple candid moments like when the moderator asked about New Jersey’s competitive business position. "If you’re a one issue voter and tax rate is your issue, either a family or a business, it that’s the only basis upon which you’re going to make a...

    Democratic candidates gathered in Sin City and went all in on gun control. Granted, it wasn’t hard to do when the event was sponsored by gun control groups Giffords and March for Our Lives and the table dealer was a left wing cable news network that didn’t even gamble their own ratings by putting it on their network. They live-streamed on the web instead.If you missed it, I don’t blame you. Still, there’s some big election-year ideas they’re betting on.BansThe field split on outright confiscation. They must have noticed that U.S. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) isn’t at the table anymore...

"I've said time and time again that this is unacceptable, that if you come after Joe Biden, you're going to have to deal with me in this case. There is no — as you said — these are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies, plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesmen of our country, not our party, but our country.

  • Judge dismisses high-tax states' lawsuit against Trump tax deduction limits

    A federal judge handed the Trump administration a win Monday, dismissing a lawsuit from states with high taxes. The lawsuit asked U.S. District Judge J. Paul Oetken to block the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act's limit on how much people can deduct in state and local taxes (SALT). The provision effectively raised the tax burden on citizens of high-tax states.
