    The moment the two Jersey City shooters got out of their U-Haul and approached a kosher supermarket with their rifles drawn before killing three people inside has been revealed in chilling surveillance footage. Francine Graham, 50, and David Anderson, 47, drove up to JC Kosher Supermarket on Tuesday afternoon in a U-Haul which they calmly parked. They were then filmed moving towards the store with guns drawn as terrified pedestrians run for their lives. One man was able to escape the store and came hurtling out of it as they made their way inside but Leah Mindel Ferencz, 33, Moshe...

    One police officer has been shot in the head amid an ongoing active shooter situation at a bodega in Jersey City Tuesday, according to the preliminary investigation, a senior law enforcement official tells News 4. The situation is fluid and information is developing rapidly; one law enforcement source described the attack as an "ambush," and said at least one individual was holed up in a bodega with a long gun, sources say. Heavily armed local and state officers in SWAT trucks swarmed the scene, ducking behind doorways and store entrances -- some even crawling along sidewalks, closely pressed to the...

    Twice in his first two years as New Jersey’s governor, Phil Murphy tried to raise income taxes on millionaires to funnel more money into the state budget for education, transportation, and public-worker pensions. And twice, his fellow Democrats who lead the state Legislature told him no, saying the Garden State is already over-taxed.

    2 Shooters Fire At Civilians, Police From Jersey City Rooftops Yet another stunning active-shooter incident is unfolding Tuesday afternoon in New Jersey City, as two armed suspects fire on police officers using what appear to be sniper rifles as the shooters jump from rooftop to rooftop trying to escape, according to local media reports. Loud gunshots can be heard in videos posted to social media. At the end of the video below, a man can be heard shouting “they took him out”, though more gunshots followed.

    A referendum on Tuesday’s ballot in New Jersey’s northernmost county asked whether voters wanted local officials to cooperate with federal immigration agents. It passed by a lopsided 2-to-1 margin. Nearly 200 miles away, along the state’s southern swath, a directive by the state attorney general that in part bars county sheriff officers from doing the work of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents has led two counties to file federal lawsuits. A third county has threatened legal action. The state attorney general’s rule not only precipitated the lawsuits, but also became a key election issue, generating support for Republican candidates who...

The guest speaker, Scott Pappalardo, possessed several “large-capacity” magazines, unserialized 80% AR15 lower receivers, and the parts and tools to complete the lower receivers to functioning AR-15 rifles, and possessed a large bayonet.

    The annual Fireman’s Parade is a big deal in Franklin, New Jersey. But there’s a bit of controversy after volunteer firefighters from Sussex County included a Trump 2020 banner in the Color Guard. The banner included the words, “Keep America Great.” Local Democrats are furious. The Sussex County Watchdog reports that the volunteer firefighters have received death threats. And some citizens are calling for the volunteers to be fired. “Evidently, their loathing of Donald Trump is more dear to them than the safety of their own children,” the Watchdog reported. The New Jersey Herald reports someone filed a complaint with...

    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...

    A former police chief in New Jersey who is on trial on a federal hate-crime charge after he allegedly slammed a black teenager’s head into a doorjamb, once called President Trump “the last hope for white people,” according to a recording recently played for jurors. In the 2016 recording, which federal officials shared with The New York Times, Frank Nucera Jr., the former chief, can be heard saying that Mr. Trump was the last hope because “Hillary will give it to all the minorities to get a vote. That’s the truth! I’m telling you.” The Trump comment was surreptitiously recorded...

    Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) released the following statement: “For months, the President of the United States has failed to respect the authority endowed to Congress by the Constitution. He has directed members of his Administration and former campaign officials to show contempt for Congressional subpoenas and investigations. The reports of a whistleblower complaint clearly call into question the oath the president took to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States above political, financial, and personal gain. The president has done more than enough to meet the legal standards to justify impeachment. It’s time...

    Catholicism preaches forgiveness, but this might be a tough ask. The face of a Virgin Mary statue outside a Downtown Jersey City church was found covered with dog feces and the depraved vandal added a cigarette to the desecration. The vandalism was reported by a parishioner who was entering St. Michael Church on Ninth Street just before the daily midday Mass, said the Rev. Thomas Quinn, the pastor. “I was shocked, saddened and angry,” Quinn said. “Without a doubt it was the work of someone who is emotionally disturbed. Still, there was some degree of deliberation there.”

    After the 9/11 attacks, we began to hear that cliche about how “the terrorists will have won” if we let ourselves become so consumed with fear that we no longer act rationally. Well, the future is now. That’s my reaction to that decision to cancel the annual Labor Day parade in South Plainfield because a guy left some fireworks in a bar in Sea Bright. When I got an email from the Governor’s Office Monday morning saying this year’s parade had been canceled, I figured it might be because of the weather. -snip- Nope. It soon turned out that the...

    WESTFIELD, N.J. – The New Jersey Assembly’s top Republican is making no secret about his decidedly pro-gun control orientation heading into the fall elections. According to a source in the district, the campaign of Assembly GOP Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) recently sent out a mailer to Democrat-inclusive universe of voters in his battleground 21st Legislative District (encompassing portions of Union, Somerset and Morris counties). In the mailer, Bramnick trumpets his support of strong gun control legislation and his “F” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Grein alleges that the cardinal abused him...
