    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...

    Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday night he “100 percent” supports the formal impeachment inquiry his fellow Democrats recently launched into President Donald Trump, saying the Republican president’s alleged behavior is “awful.”
  • Parade panic in NJ: the terrorists have succeeded in scaring public officials, if not the public

    09/13/2019 10:17:36 AM PDT · by Coleus · 15 replies
    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...
  • New York is running out of fuel and power — just as Cuomo planned

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo doubled down last week on his blame-the-messenger approach to New York’s growing shortage of natural-gas supplies by ordering the Department of Public Service to “broaden its investigation” of National Grid and threatening to “find another franchisee.” Anything, rather than admit that his own policies are at fault. The utility has stopped taking new gas customers in parts of Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens where it can’t handle the new demand — because Team Cuomo vetoed the proposed Williams pipeline to bring in supplies from New Jersey. (Jersey is also blocking the pipeline, since Gov. Phil Murphy is...
  • If Phil Murphy had his way, all gun sales in N.J. would be limited to ‘smart guns’

    It’s “too early to tell” if New Jersey will limit firearms sales in the state to only include so-called smart guns, Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday. But if it was up to him, smart guns would be the only type of guns people here would be able to purchase. “Yes. I hope it does get to that,” Murphy said during his monthly “Ask the Governor” program hosted by News 12 New Jersey.

    A thousand miles from Newark, in a tiny old school building tucked behind a Christian church, Cary Booker delivered the bad news. It was spring of 2011, and Omni Prep Academy, the Tennessee charter school co-founded and led by U.S. Sen. Cory Booker’s older brother, could no longer pay its kindergarten and first-grade teachers, the elder Booker announced, according to former teachers who were in the room. The financial woes weren’t a shock — when the school opened the previous fall it provided no books, no curriculum and almost no training for its novice educators, former teachers said in interviews...

    As expected, Governor Phil Murphy signed a record-setting FY 2020 budget on Sunday, line-item vetoing $48.5 million in spending (impounding many millions more, too, with little offered in the way of firm details) and avoiding a state government shutdown but authorizing $38.7 billion overall. That’s up from the $37.4 billion New Jersey spent over the course of fiscal year 2019.Murphy gave up (for now) on his fight for a millionaire’s tax increase. The Governor nevertheless doubled-down on his class warfare rhetoric, declaring that he remains “on the side of putting New Jersey’s families ahead of the wealthy, ahead of privileged...

    Dear Gov. Murphy: You’re wrong, you’re throwing tantrums, you’re acting like Donald Trump, you have no plans to fix New Jersey, and we’ll run the state government without you if we have to. Love, New Jersey’s top state lawmaker. That’s essentially the message state Senate President Stephen Sweeney fired at Gov. Phil Murphy on Wednesday, shortly after the Democratic governor lambasted the Democratic-controlled state Legislature over the state budget they recently sent him. New Jersey is prepping for a budget cliffhanger for the third straight year, even though Democrats run all branches of government. Murphy is set to decide Sunday...

    Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy issued his strongest threat yet Wednesday to New Jersey’s Democratic-controlled state Legislature: Without tax increases, I’m prepared to slash spending items you want. In a letter to lawmakers, Murphy warned that if they continue with their current plan to send him a state budget that lacks his proposal to increase income taxes on the state’s millionaires, or if they don’t agree to raise any other taxes, then he’ll consider line-item vetoes on the Legislature’s $38.7 billion proposed budget.

    TRENTON, N.J. – Anyone frustrated with Phil Murphy’s rocky, far-left first term in office – and their fellow residents ambivalence to it – won’t be comforted by the results of a new Fairleigh Dickinson Poll. According to the pollsters, one-third (1/3) of adults polled couldn’t identify Phil Murphy as governor without prompting.

    After Democrats in the Legislature shut down his demand to send him a millionaires tax in the state budget, Gov. Phil Murphy said Monday the new spending plan “falls short on the principle of tax fairness” and said he wants to work with top lawmakers on something better. It’s Murphy’s first reaction after the Democratic-controlled Legislature quickly approved a $38.7 billion budget through key committees Monday that denies the governor his millionaires tax — something he’s wanted for years and pushed aggressively for since he unveiled his budget in January. “It leaves us without the stable and sustainable revenues to...

    Gov. Phil Murphy all but said Thursday he won’t sign another state budget unless it includes a tax hike on those who earn more than $1 million a year in New Jersey. Murphy declared he’s done “stumbling” from one budget agreement to another each year as he put his foot down for a tax increase on the state’s top earners to help pump more money into education, transportation public-worker pensions and property taxes.

    George Norcross III, the South Jersey Democratic power broker long at odds with the governor, has declared all-out war on Phil Murphy, calling him a “liar” and “politically incompetent.” After enduring a steady drumbeat of criticism over how his company and other entities tied to him allegedly benefitted from lucrative tax incentives meant to help revive the city of Camden, Norcross went on the attack. He lambasted a special governor’s task force deployed to investigate the New Jersey Economic Development Authority in connection with those tax incentives, as well as the governor.

    The other leader of the state Legislature has now rejected Gov. Phil Murphy’s proposal to pour another $250 million into property tax relief for New Jersey residents next year if lawmakers agree to his plan to raise taxes on millionaires. That means Murphy and his fellow Democrats who lead the Legislature could be headed for another tense state budget battle in the coming weeks — and raises the possibility once again of a state government shutdown. State Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin, D-Middlesex, said in a statement obtained by NJ Advance Media on Wednesday night that “I do not share the...

Phil Murphy’s proposal to raise taxes on millionaires in the Garden State, even though Murphy is now offering to put an additional $250 million in property tax relief to residents next year if lawmakers agree to the hike.

    LUCAS COUNTY, OH-A traffic stop in Ohio yesterday led to the arrest of an illegal alien from the sanctuary of state of New Jersey. Ohio State Trooper Mitch Ross pulled over a vehicle for a routine traffic stop when he noticed a young girl with a man. Neither of them spoke English or had identification. Luckily for the girl, Ohio is not a sanctuary state and the officer was able to determine the driver was an illegal alien. Ross was also able to determine that the child was in his police database as a missing person from New Jersey. Police...
