  • OPINION-Improving NJ voter turnout is the only way to fix the state | Jack Ciattarelli

    “Jack, in 2020, Donald Trump got 1.9 million votes in New Jersey. You left 600,000 votes on the table by only receiving 1.3 million votes.” New Jersey is not unique in that voter turnout for presidential races far exceeds governor races, which is unfortunate considering all that’s at stake in our state. Having said that, the 2021 governor’s race did see the greatest number of gubernatorial votes in state history. Still, as a state, we need to do better. As for the 2020 presidential election, receiving 1.9 million votes doesn’t really matter when your opponent receives 2.6 million to win...

    I am running for Republican Precinct Chairman for Precinct 13 in Gillespie County, Texas, so I thought I’d write a little bio that is relevant to that objective. Summary of qualities for the position: --A lifetime history of activism defending life, liberty, and the Constitution; --Involvement in the Republican Party (excepting 1998?) since I was 18; --Proven record of opposing the Republican establishment when that is necessary. I am 57 years old, a Christian, have 8 home-schooled children, have been an activist in conservative and Christian causes since middle school. I’ve been active in the Republican party since I was...
  • On Big Problems: Expect More from States, Less from Supreme Court

    Governing the Future of States and Localities ^ | November 21st 2021 | Clay S. Jenkinson
    In today’s polarized political climate, Americans nervously anticipate U.S. Supreme Court rulings with the same fervor with which they enjoy sports, and with the same goal in mind: namely, to win. But American government is not a game, cautions United States Court of Appeals Judge Jeffrey S. Sutton. By forcing the Supreme Court to make notably divisive, winner-take-all decisions, he argues, we run the risk of politicizing the “crown jewel of American government.” No one at the American founding took the view that the U.S. Supreme Court should resolve the most difficult issues in American government or be the key...

  • San Francisco Mayor London Breed’s Reaction to Crime Spree and Covid Surge: Clubbing

    Between Pandemic Panic Theater and the real threat of the crime wave sweeping across San Francisco, most would assume Mayor London Breed would be burning the midnight oil trying to find solutions to the plethora of problems her constituents face. They would assume this because most do not know the real London Breed, a social justice partier who would never let her city’s problems get in the way of her nightlife.

  • Got balls? Ron DeSantis has new edgy merch

    Florida Politics ^ | November 18th 2021 | Anne Geggis
    As golf balls, they're not all that big. Florida’s Governor has a pair. That’s the slogan emblazoned on new merchandise — golf balls — that debuted Wednesday as the Legislature made a decisive drive toward passing legislation Gov. Ron DeSantis called for to fortify Florida against those pesky federal vaccine mandates. “Hold the line,” says the box, under the line about the Governor having a pair. Even if the line isn’t specified on the new merchandise, there’s plenty of double entendre. Allusions to anatomy abound. “Standing firm and setting an example for the rest of the nation in defending freedom...

    Mark Ronchetti has resigned as KRQE-TV's chief meteorologist to consider a run for governor. "We have not made a final decision yet," Ronchetti said Friday in a statement. "Krysty and I will continue to talk to our girls and pray about the direction we're going to head in next," he added, referring to his wife and two young daughters. "We hope to have a final decision by next week." During Thursday night's news broadcast, the station reported that Ronchetti had "handed in his resignation to News 13 effective immediately" to consider a run for governor.

    Over the last six months, companies globally have sounded the alarm about a growing supply chain threat: the incredible backup at US ports, in particular at ports in California. What started as a concern has spiraled into a full blown transportation emergency – one that threatens to spike already rising inflation and lead to scarcity of essential items here in the US. The current supply chain crisis falls squarely within the purview of the Secretary of Transportation – given that it involves ports, rail, and trucking (ie the basic components of the Secretary of Transportation’s policy portfolio).

    Arguably the best exchange during Tuesday night’s gubernatorial debate (the first of two) came when Phil Murphy – who spent most of the night trying to deflect away from his record – tried to smack Jack Ciattarelli over January 6th. “If you want to talk about disqualifiers: ‘If taxes are your issue, we’re probably not your state,'” Ciattarelli said, responding to Murphy’s oft-repeated allegation that the GOP nominee willingly participated in a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally. “Or saying that you wanted to make New Jersey the California of the East Coast? I consider those disqualifiers.’ “The people died, Assemblyman! People...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Republican candidate for Minnesota governor Scott Jensen says a mass shooting at a St. Paul bar early Sunday morning shows the idea of defunding the police is “ridiculous.” A woman was killed and 14 people were injured when gunfire broke out at Seventh Street Truck Park just after midnight. Three suspects have been arrested and are being treated at area hospitals for injuries suffered in the shooting. On Facebook, Jensen posted a video of Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher driving through the area of the shooting the night before it happened. Fletcher regularly livestreams patrols from his...

    The save America movement is alive. I have talked about this before but we continue to see a push back against the Biden agenda from Republican-led states and are even seeing it at the local level. This is in my opinion what will keep the country from completely falling apart until the midterms when we are able to send a strong message and give the Democrats a major loss in Congress. Yes, elections still do matter despite what happened in 2020.

    Now that the recall effort to remove Gavin Newsom as governor is over, I’ve had time to reflect on where I think the state is headed after this. Is it time to give up on California? California did what the majority does every election and votes Democrat. This is not to discredit the huge effort to get over 2 million signatures to make the recall happen.

    Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced that his state will push forward and build its own wall at the southern border. Abbott revealed the Lone Star State’s plans to Breitbart shortly before a border summit in Del Rio, Texas on Thursday. Those plans were confirmed at the summit and reported by CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. “I will announce next week the plan for the state of Texas to begin building the border wall in the state of Texas,” he declared at the event.
