    Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports” that “war has been declared on the American woman” when asked to react to the Politico report that the Supreme Court has made a 5-4 decision to overturn abortion. Tur said, “Even if the 1973 decision is reversed, abortion would be illegal in states like New Jersey. It is more than a handful of Democratic red states that codified the abortion into state law. Joining me now is Governor Phil Murphy. Governor, thank you for being with us. What is your reaction?”

    Never be a victim. Learn your environment and adapt accordingly if left with no option to move to somewhere better. We have one power still and that is to self empower. Never stop learning, being aware and have faith. Without faith, nothing is possible. A video from New Jersey shows a girl with some serious MMA level Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills and uses them to defend herself from a giant school bully who’s been stalking her all the way home. Her bully friends tried to keep her in the fight but without a success.

    he world faces a growing threat of Russia using nuclear weapons as the nation continues to face losses in Ukraine, according to one U.S. senator. Bob Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, spoke about the prospect during an appearance on Fox News Sunday. The New Jersey democrat said he fears Russian President Vladimir Putin could turn to nuclear weapons as the continued failure of his invasion of Ukraine damages his image among his people, and called the possibility "a real concern." "Well, one of my concerns is that, ironically, the more success that the Ukrainians have, the greater...

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that Title 42, which limits immigration during the COVID pandemic, was not the solution but part of the problem. Anchor Chuck Todd said, “Quick questions about immigration. Many of your Democratic colleagues are not happy with the decision to rescind Title 42 with what they believe is not an adequate enough plan. You would like to see title 42 ended, I know that, but at the same time, you questioned whether or not we have the resources and commitment to do this. What is the best way to handle...

    NPR ^ | April 29, 2022
    California and 15 states that want the U.S. Postal Service to electrify its mail delivery vehicles are suing to halt purchases of thousands of gas-powered trucks as the agency modernizes its delivery fleet. Three separate lawsuits, filed Thursday by the states and environmental groups in New York and California, ask judges to order a more thorough environmental review before the Postal Service moves forward with the next-generation delivery vehicle program. Plaintiffs contend that purchases of fossil fuel-powered delivery vehicles will cause environmental harm for decades to come. The lawsuits could further delay the Postal Service's efforts to replace the ubiquitous...

    n antisemitic New Jersey man went on a shocking hours-long crime spree targeting Hasidic Jews — having warned his family to expect “a blood bath,” according to police documents.

The spree started with a violent carjacking in Lakewood Township just after 1 p.m. — and only ended nearly 10 hours later when he was arrested at home in Manchester, prosecutors said. Two of his victims —...

    Following a tour of Conway Medical Center’s flagship hospital on Thursday, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stood side-by-side with U.S. Rep. Tom Rice and said the congressman had earned his support, friendship and endorsement. “Congressman Rice has an extraordinary conservative record that Republicans all over the country should be proud of,” Christie told reporters. The former Republican governor of a reliably blue state praised Rice for helping to create jobs in Horry County and across South Carolina’s 7th congressional district. Christie said such work has “been incredibly helpful to lift people out of poverty and give their families a...

    Last week, as Palestinian psychopaths murdered three more innocent Israeli civilians in Tel Aviv in an escalating campaign of terror, activist students at two American universities voted on repulsive resolutions to urge their respective universities to divest from companies doing business with Israel. On April 5th, the undergraduate student government at Ohio State University passed what it categorized as an “emergency resolution,” asking the university to divest from Hewlett Packard and Caterpillar, Inc., and claiming that “by investing in such companies, The Ohio State University implicitly condones and profits from the decisions and actions of these companies, and, as...

    Over the past four years, my Nurture NJ work has allowed me to meet countless New Jersey mothers, many of whom have bravely spoken out about their experiences during pregnancy, labor and delivery. Their stories underscore just how frightening and dangerous childbirth can be, especially for mothers of color. I have written and spoken many times before about our disturbing statistics: a Black mother in New Jersey is over seven times more likely than a white mother to die of pregnancy-related complications. A Black baby is over three times more likely than a white baby to die before his or...

    Two women at New Jersey's only all-women's prison have both fallen pregnant after having sex with transgender inmates. The pregnant women, who were not identified, are housed at the embattled Edna Mahan Correctional Facility, in Clinton, which New Jersey Governor announced plans to close last year. Prison bosses said that in both instances, the sex was consensual. It is unclear if the women had sex with the same transgender inmate, or if it was two different inmates. Edna Mahan houses 27 transgender prisoners, and over 800 women altogether. It is also unclear how far along the two inmates are, and...
