    Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) is calling for "our friends in the corporate community to make it clear that members of Congress who do not support amnesty for the tens of millions of undocumented immigrants in the country will not receive campaign donations, consulting fees, shares of stock, or cushy corporate jobs after retiring from politics." "What they all need to understand is that this is a win-win situation for them and us," Menendez said. "We get more Democrat voters to help us maintain ownership of the government. They get an increased supply of cheap labor that will improve their profits...

    Atilis Gym co-owner Ian Smith has made a name for himself for standing up to New Jersey’s COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, despite Governor Phil Murphy’s repeated attempts to shut him down through citations, fines, arrests, having their business license stripped, and their doors locked and barricaded. This week, Murphy escalated the fight. “As of this morning, without warning, and without permission, and in the middle of litigation, Governor Murphy took it upon himself to empty our bank account entirely, to the tune of $165,000,” explained Smith on a video posted to social media. He said it still wouldn’t stop him....

    It’s the first time that smoking has been good for your health. New Jersey is now allowing smokers to get the highly coveted COVID-19 vaccine — on the grounds that their habit is considered a high-risk health condition, reports said Wednesday. “Smoking puts you at significant risk for an adverse result from COVID-19 and there are 2 million smokers in New Jersey who fit into these categories,” New Jersey’s Department of Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli said, according to

    The Trump administration will place Cuba back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism on Monday, according to two senior State Department officials, reversing an Obama-era decision and making it harder for President-elect Joe Biden to quickly revive diplomatic ties with Havana.Secretary of State Michael Pompeo is expected to indicate he’s designating Cuba because the country continues to harbor American fugitives including Joanne Chesimard, convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973, and refuses a Colombian extradition request for National Liberation Army members linked to a 2019 bombing that killed 22.Cuba joins only Syria, Iran and North...

    Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said on Sunday that he believed President Trump's actions before supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol last week amounted to an "impeachable offense." While appearing on ABC's "This Week," Christie, a former U.S. attorney who has supported Trump, said that Republicans in Congress would have to "vote their conscience" if an impeachment article is brought forward and "look at what happened." "What we had was an incitement to riot at the United States Capitol. We had people killed, and to me there's not a whole lot of question here," said Christie. Christie added that...

    New Jersey's tyrannical Attorney General, Gurbir Grewal, is adding to his dubious list of anti-Second Amendment activism. On 15 December 2020, Smith & Wesson sued Grewal, asking for relief, for using his office to violate the First Amendment, Second Amendment, as well as the Fourth, Fifth, and Fourteenth Amendment protections of the U.S. Constitution. Defense Distributed won a significant victory in September of 2020, with the Fifth Circuit agreeing Defense Distributed could sue AG Grewal in Texas. The case is ongoing and alleges Grewal violated Defense Distributed's First Amendment rights.The Smith & Wesson lawsuit is about a subpoena issued on...

Phil Murphy. The Atilis Gym in Bellmawr became an anti-lockdown posterchild in May after it repeatedly refused to adhere to the Garden State’s orders to close.

    New Jersey pro-life leaders are warning their state about a massive new pro-abortion bill that would legalize abortions up to birth and jeopardize the lives of mothers and babies. A pet project of pro-abortion Gov. Phil Murphy, the bill (S3030/A4848) would force taxpayers to pay for abortions and eliminate a conscience protection clause for medical workers who believe it is wrong to kill an unborn baby. Murphy introduced the radical pro-abortion bill, the Reproductive Freedom Act, in October. State Senate and Assembly committees are considering it this month. “This outrageous bill strips babies of their right to live, strips women...

    What the L? Gov. Cuomo rocked the regional transportation world this week when he cheered a report suggesting that the existing cross-Hudson tunnels between New Jersey and New York don’t need a full shutdown to rebuild them, potentially throwing yet another wrench into the plan to build a new pair of tunnels to boost interstate rail capacity, a $13-billion piece of the Gateway Project. It’s the latest baffling twist in the decade-plus-long saga. On Sunday, the governor suggested that a report done for the Port Authority by consultants London Bridge Associates showed that the existing century-old tunnels could be fixed...

    It’s a done deal. Tolls on the states three major toll highways are going up in September, after Gov.

The approvals came on the same day boards of both agencies met, held lengthy public hearings and approved the toll increases. Governors have the option to approve authority board minutes, or not to...

Why is that? You hear the WHO saying it’s the last possible resort, considering the economic impact of that. You heard Dr. Anthony Fauci say something similar, but yet you’re saying it’s possible in your state?”
