    The thousands of people who descended upon the Jersey Shore town for President Donald Trump's 'Keep America Great' rally at the Wildwoods Convention Center left behind a sea of trash in the parking lot — including their abandoned beach chairs and blankets — after the rally wrapped up.Rally-goers were allowed to bring chairs as they waited in line — some for up to 48 hours before the event — but they weren't allowed to bring them inside the venue.Factor in the blankets they used to stay warm, and all their drinks and food they were snacking on during the long wait...

    The gun control conundrum will continue ad infinitum.  But what is happening in New Jersey should frighten anyone -- gun owner or not.  NJS102 will most likely be affirmed by the Democrat senate majority in the NJ legislature.  The NJ Assembly has already passed the following:  A1217, which would create restraining orders in the state allowing family members and others to ask a judge to have a person's guns seized and ban them from buying weapons for up to a year.  A2757, which would require all private gun sales in the state to go through a licensed dealer who can perform...
  • Rise of the Republican Governors - A new liberal era? Not according to these reformers.

    City Journal ^ | Spring 2013 | Steven Malanga
    Shortly after Barack Obama won reelection in November, New Jersey governor Chris Christie pointed out that Republicans’ cloudy political prospects had a bright silver lining. “One of the reasons you have 30 Republican governors in America, and why we’re the only organization to add Republican strength,” Christie said, “is because people see us getting things done.” Christie’s stance countered most of the elite postelection commentary, which gleefully pronounced the Republican Party’s political irrelevance. But the governor was right. Since Obama first took office in 2008, Republicans have picked up a net nine governorships, bringing their total to 30 states,...

    Out of the Closet; Into the Church Homo McGreevey Finds Higher Calling What does a gay governor do after he resigns from political office in disgrace? He becomes an Episcopalian and enters the priesthood. Jim McGreevey, the former New Jersey love gov, has gone from Turnpike truck stops to All Saints Church in Hoboken, where he is known as “Father Jim.” Last Sunday, the ex governor administered the sacrament of baptism to a bevy of babies, blessed the Eucharist, and carried the cross during the processional. In 2004, Mr. McGreevey resigned as Governor of New Jersey after revealing...

    They've bickered over whether she knew he was gay, whose tell-all book would sell better, whether a poster of a nude man hanging over his new lover's bed had to come down before she'd allow their 6-year-old to visit. Divorce has been exceptionally bitter for former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey and his wife, Dina Matos McGreevey. Unless they can resolve the custody and money issues that have arisen since their acrimonious parting, the state's estranged former first couple is heading for a May trial. Celebrity divorce lawyer Raoul Felder, whose list of clients includes exes of Mike Tyson and...

    McGreevey tells wife: You'll get zilch from me BY ADAM NICHOLS DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Saturday, September 15th 2007, 4:00 AM Jim McGreevey yesterday accused his soon-to-be-ex wife of "greedily" grabbing at the perks of being New Jersey's First Lady - and refusing to give them back. In legal papers packed with snide and catty comments, the openly gay McGreevey told estranged wife Dina Matos McGreevey she can expect to get nothing from him. Matos McGreevey had asked him to pony up $4,000 a month in alimony to help her live a lavish lifestyle like his. "Her jealousy and contempt...

    Jim McGreevey to begin Episcopal seminary classes BY CHRISTINA BOYLE DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER Saturday, September 1st 2007, 4:00 AM Jim McGreevey, the nation's first openly gay governor, is returning to the classroom Tuesday as a seminary student. The former New Jersey governor will begin full-time studies at the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church in Chelsea, where he will pursue a three-year Master of Divinity program. McGreevey, 50, switched denominations from Roman Catholic to Episcopalian earlier this year and has expressed an interest in becoming a priest. "I hope that Jim McGreevey finds some contentment and...

    Yahoo picked up a fluff AP article that distorted Democratic NJ Governor Jim McGreevey’s 2004 resignation. It perpetuated the success of what should have been a politician’s attempt to cover allegations of corruption by using his closeted sexuality to distract an incurious and complicit media. This puff piece kept alive McGreevey’s pattern of announcing something socially startling to draw attention away from the incredible graft, scandal and alleged sexual harassment that would have otherwise defined his administration. When threats to McGreevey's reputation arise, he uses his status as a gay man to deflect unwanted attention, and the AP went along...

    Like a parent gently scolding her warring children, a Family Court judge yesterday told former Gov. James E. McGreevey and his wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, to "use common sense" and to act in the best interest of their daughter as they work through an increasingly rancorous divorce. The McGreeveys, appearing in public together for the first time since the former governor famously declared himself a "gay American" three years ago, sat a few feet apart but spoke barely a word to each other in the packed Elizabeth courtroom. Their only interaction came at the session's start, when McGreevey approached his...

    Shreveport Police have arrested a man and charged him with an unusual form of animal cruelty. 56-year old David Powell was taken into custody Friday afternoon at his apartment in downtown Shreveport. Animal control officer Rick Quillen says witnesses say they saw Powell being "unusually affectionate" with a neighbor's dog and saw pictures on Powell's computer of him having sex with the animal. Powell was taken to Caddo Correctional Center and booked on one charge of simple animal cruelty. A misdemeanor. Officers also seized Powell's computer during the arrest. It's now being examined by a expert at the Caddo D.A.'s...

    Mr. McCullough suggests below that our country has a “new superhero” class of extra-marital fornicators: “Who are they? Men who engage in same-gender sexual activities!” Episcopal bishop (Vickie) Eugene Robinson for example, and, of course, the lastest: Former New Jersey Governor Jim McGreevey. Mr. McCullough noticed, as did many puzzled Christians, how many times Jim McGreevey invoked the name of God, stating repeatedly that his open embrace of homosexuality is part of his “path back to godliness.” There could be no greater lie. Jesus Himself said, “If you love me, you will obey what I command” (John 14:15)…the same Jesus...

    Jim McGreevey may have blabbed too much in his tell-all autobiography - and not just about his sex life......the gay former gov's confessions about NJ's notorious "pay-to-play" politics and his ties to a parade of corrupt power players could get him criminally prosecuted....... Ed Stier, a former federal and New Jersey state prosecutor told The Post..... "McGreevey's book may inadvertently supply enough information - to suggest that an already-closed investigation be reopened or expanded" ....McGreevey describes political patronage as "the coin of the realm" in NJ, a "form of sanctioned bribery" .......citing land deals and board appointments as examples of...

    by Mark Finkelstein September 24, 2006 - 07:02 Summer's over, but it's still way too warm for hell to freeze over. And yet . . . The usually reliably liberal Neal Gabler has lambasted Jim McGreevey for his more-than-we-needed-to-know confessions about his homosexuality. Even more shockingly, Gabler singled out Sean Hannity for praise for conducting the toughest interview of the Oprahfied former governor. On last evening's Fox News Watch, there was unanimity from right to left that McGreevey's book, 'The Confession', and his media blitz to promote it, was an unseemly undertaking in which his family paid the price while...

    Liberals are always cheering for the wrong people. Have you ever noticed? In our war on Islamo-fascism, they ask America to withdraw. When Hugo Chavez smells sulfur at the United Nations, liberal Democratic senators "understand" him (i.e., Tom Harkin). But no one is a liberal's hero the way an adulterer is. You would think in a world shaped by modern liberal feminists that liberal media types and liberal politicians would be rushing to the aid of the poor wife and kids, offering them welfare and state-funded counseling and beating the offending man to within an inch of his life. But...

    Here's my Confession: Last week, I actually wondered if I was being too hard on former Gov. Jim McGreevey, the lying, cheating, sleaze hawking a new book claiming he's a changed man. But then I spent the weekend reading an increasingly sickening war of words between McGreevey and his supposed former lover, Golan Cipel. Now, the most charitable thing to say about the disgraced leader is that he's lucky he wasn't investigated for attempted rape - and luckier today's much-hyped Oprah appearance is not live, but taped. Leave it to McGreevey to usher in a new low for sexual politics:...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Jim McGreevey sexually harassed and assaulted Golan Cipel during his tenure as the state's homeland security chief, the former Israeli Army officer told the Daily News yesterday. 'He put his hands to my chest and pushed me into the bedroom. He pushed me onto the bed and jumped on me. We wrestled and he stopped. And there was this moment when ... I asked him, 'Why did you think I was gay?' And he said, 'Everybody's a little bit gay.'" Golan Cipel Cipel relayed quite a different reality from the one McGreevey recounts in his new...

    In his highly anticipated memoir, former Gov. James E. McGreevey writes of his deep love for the man who ended his political career, the destruction of his second marriage and the events that forced him into his stunning admission on national television that he is gay. In "The Confession," the former governor also touches on New Jersey's sometimes seamy political landscape, where cash, cronyism and a handful of powerful men intersect. But the 384-page book focuses mostly on McGreevey's secret life, from his frequent sexual encounters with men at highway rest stops to his infatuation with Golan Cipel, the Israeli...

    Disgraced former Garden State Gov. Jim McGreevey's new home is just down the road from his estranged wife's place - but in terms of amenities, it's a world away. The famously gay pol is slated to close this week on his three-story, 1914 Georgian estate in Plainfield - 10 miles down Route 22 from Dina Matos McGreevey's single-story, 1954 ranch in Springfield. McGreevey and his wealthy investment-adviser boyfriend, Mark O'Donnell, paid about $1.3 million for the ivy-covered home in Plainfield's historic district, sources told The Post. Meanwhile, Dina McGreevey paid $430,000 for her red-brick tract house in 2005, shortly after...

    Charles Kushner, the Port Authority commissioner who is New Jersey Governor James McGreevey’s choice to be the agency’s next chairman, may soon find the dreaded appellation "embattled" attached to his name. Mr. Kushner is facing a whistle-blower lawsuit that could jeopardize his appointment to head the Port Authority—an appointment he doubtless helped to secure through generous contributions to New Jersey Democrats. He was the single largest donor to Mr. McGreevey’s campaign fund last year; to Hillary Clinton’s in 2000 and 2001; and to Senator Robert Torricelli’s in 1999 and 2001. Kushner companies collectively provided the largest bundle of contributions to...
