    Anti-fascist groups, or “Antifa,” are a subset of the anarchist movement and focus on issues involving racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism, as well as other perceived injustices. Self-described Antifa groups have been established across the United States and in several major cities, including New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and San Francisco. A majority of New Jersey-based anarchist groups are affiliated with the Antifa movement and are opposed to “fascism,” racism, and law enforcement. Antifa groups coordinate regionally and have participated in protests in New York City and Philadelphia. There are three loosely organized chapters in New Jersey, known as the North Jersey...

    Menendez and Melgen in happier times Paul Mulshine of the Newark (NJ) Star-Ledger, the hometown newspaper of Senator Robert Menendez, has penned a column titled, “Will the eye doctor see his way clear to singing on the senator?” It’s about what a judge did in Thursday in Florida. Dr. Salomon Melgen, Menendez’ co-defendant on bribery charges, was supposed to be sentenced for his conviction on separate charges of Medicare fraud. The judge agreed to delay sentencing until after the bribery trial, scheduled for September in New Jersey, suggesting that Melgen may be cooperating with prosecutors and will testify against...

    I had an inkling things were changing last summer as I sat on the beach at the Jersey Shore chatting with two seasonal companions. “Enough with the lib stuff,” one told me. “You know we’re Republicans.” Actually, I didn’t know, but naively assumed we had similar politics. We grew up in the same gritty city (Paterson), had lost touch and reconnected at the shore. I could handle them being Republicans but voting for Trump was more than I could stomach. After that crack, we tabled election talk and chatted about the weather forecast and dining out. I’ve lived in the...

    Troubled singer Sinéad O’Connor has posted an online video saying she’s suicidal — and living in a motel “in the arse end of New Jersey.” “I’m all by myself. And there’s absolutely nobody in my life except my doctor, my psychiatrist, the sweetest man on earth, who says I’m his hero, and that’s about the only thing keeping me alive at the moment … and that’s kind of pathetic,” the “Nothing Compares 2 U’’ singer says, weeping. “I am now living in a Travelodge motel in the arse end of New Jersey” — Hackensack, she said. “I want everyone to...

    AUGUSTA, NJ – People driving to the New Jersey State Fair or points north in Sussex County on Saturday were greeted by a rally of Trump supporters. Peacefully holding posters, American flags and Trump flags of all sizes, about 30 people stood on the side of the road at the well-traveled intersection of Route 15, Route 206 and Ross Corner Sussex Road. Many passers-by honked their horns but that was the extent of the noise from the group. “After (anti-Trump demonstrations in) Bedminster we decided to be here to support our president, local conservatives, Republicans and tea party supporters,” the...

    When President Donald Trump and other world leaders gather at the United Nations next month for the annual U.N. General Assembly, Trump may have a message for his fellow heads of state: “C’mon over to my golf club in New Jersey.” Trump is considering inviting an unspecified number of world leaders to the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, in the days surrounding the annual global gathering at the U.N. in New York City, the Washington Post reported. The U.S. president is expected to address the General Assembly for the first time Sept. 19 and also meet with...

    New England's got a bone to pick with New Jersey, apparently. Many are coming to the defense of the Garden State after two writers from The Boston Globe penned an article criticizing President Donald Trump for breaking the tradition of spending his presidential vacation at a New England destination. Trump kicked off his first summer getaway as president Friday at his golf club estate in Bedminster, New Jersey, whereas former President Barack Obama spent his days in Martha's Vineyard. Obama is heading back there for his first time post-presidency this weekend, too. The headline of the story published Friday reads,...

    PISCATAWAY - An $80 million modern manufacturing plant being built in Piscataway will bring 120 jobs to the area and new life to an abandoned chemical factory, officials said Thursday. Cascades, Inc. produces, converts and markets packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibers. The new state-of-the-art, 400,000-square-foot facility will manufacture corrugated packaging products at the new facility, according to a release from the company. Piscataway Mayor Brian C. Wahler said it's an important development for the town. "Not only are we getting an old site back on the tax rolls, but we'll be gaining a tremendous...
  • Why people are getting the hell out of the Northeast

    Winter is coming for the North. Last year, three states in the Northeast — New Jersey, New York and Connecticut — landed in the top five places people were moving out of fastest, according to 2017 data from United Van Lines. (The other two states on the list were Illinois and Kansas.) And data from Pew Charitable Trusts found that while people are all about moving to the South (their population grew by nearly 1.4 million people from 2014 to 2015) and the West (866,000 more people,) the population growth in the Northeast is “sluggish.” The Northeastern exodus is particularly...

    Republican Gov. Chris Christie signed a law Friday making New Jersey the third state to raise its smoking age to 21. Christie cited the strain on the health care system caused by tobacco-related illnesses. He also noted his mother died from the effects of smoking. "By raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco products to 21, we are giving young people more time to develop a maturity and better understanding of how dangerous smoking can be and that it is better to not start smoking in the first place," Christie wrote.

    The Trump administration on Thursday announced it is pouring $500 million into the production of glass pharmaceutical packaging as part of the president's "Made in America" week. President Donald Trump met with representatives of Merck, Pfizer and Corning in the Roosevelt Room of the White House to announce the initiative. He said the investment would create nearly 1,000 jobs "quickly." "This initiative will bring a key industry to our shores that for too long has been dominated by foreign countries," he said. "We're moving more and more companies back into the United States, and they're doing more and more of...

    The biggest star of the US Women’s Open golf championship held at the Trump National Golf Club on Friday was not a female golfer. The President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, arrived to his golf club in Bedminster, N.J., just as the number 3 ranked player in the world, Lexi Thompson, who has played with the president in Florida, was set to take a shot, the New York Times reported. *snip* But it had to be tough to not pay attention when the crowd erupted in cheers, screams, and chants of “make America great again” and “Mr. President.”...

    TRENTON -- The latest poll in the race to succeed Chris Christie as New Jersey's governor shows Democratic nominee Phil Murphy with a commanding 27-point lead over Republican nominee Kim Guadagno -- though a majority of voters continue to say they don't know much about either candidate. The Monmouth University Poll, released Wednesday, found 53 percent of Garden State voters would choose Murphy, a former U.S. ambassador to Germany, while 26 percent would pick Guadagno, the state's lieutenant governor.
  • ‘Antifa’ Anarchists are Domestic Terrorists According to New Jersey Homeland Security

    Heat Street ^ | July 4, 2017 | By Ian Miles Cheong
    The Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness in New Jersey has officially designated Antifa as a domestic terrorist organization following months of sporadic violence across the country. As an ideology, Antifa has its roots in far-left philosophies from Europe that began in the 1920s in response to the rise of Nazism. But the “Antifa” are little more than a rebranding of the black bloc anarchists in the punk scene, who often showed up at otherwise peaceful protests in the ‘90s and 2000s to commit acts of violence. Members of the leftist movement, some of whom have deep ties to the...

    Over a hundred people marched through downtown Newark, N.J., on June 24 demanding reparations for the African Holocaust. Called by the People’s Organization for Progress, the demonstration was greeted by people at bus stops with clenched fists. Speaking at a rally, Larry Hamm, chairperson of POP, quoted Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois in saying that at least 150 million people were stolen from Africa during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. World capitalism was built upon this colossal crime, along with the genocide committed against Indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. Hamm noted that New Jersey’s history was intertwined with slavery. The state...

    Did you ever see the beginning of “Saving Private Ryan“? Cory Booker and those who fight against the proposed defunding of Planned Parenthood apparently know just how those soldiers must have felt. On Tuesday, Senate Democrats held a “People’s Filibuster” against the GOP’s proposed repeal of ObamaCare, livestreaming the event on Facebook. The rally included representatives from Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress, the American Federation of Teachers as well as elected officials like Senators Chris Van Hollen, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders and Jeff Merkley.
