  • Republican Old Bridge, NJ State Sen. Switches Parties To Democrat-87 year old Trump supporter

    02/14/2023 6:07:21 AM PST · by TakebackGOP · 12 replies
    "As recently as Friday, Thompson told NJ PBS "it is my anticipation" he'll once again back Trump for president in 2024. So, Thompson — 87 years old and who the NJ Globe described as a "conservative" Republican — announced he will switch parties and seek re-election to a fifth term as a Democrat. Thompson was a Trump delegate twice, in 2016 and 2020. NJ Globe reported that NJ Republicans leaders urged Henry to step down and retire, so Henry could run."

    An Arab American student who attended Ridgefield High School in northern New Jersey has filed a lawsuit against a teacher he claims used the word “terrorist” in response to a question about a class assignment. Mohammed Zubi, a practicing Muslim of Palestinian origin, states in court papers he was working with fellow students on Oct. 10, 2021 when he asked his teacher for more time to finish the assignment. “We don’t negotiate with terrorists,” the teacher allegedly said “in a loud voice” so that others could hear, states the lawsuit, filed Oct. 17 in Superior Court of Bergen County.

    “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...

She added: What people don't like about Joe Buden us his dishonesty, he ran as a centrist but has governed as a very progressive. PBS's news hours Amna Nawaz squeezed in her Squad-friendly POV.. Always interesting to hear what the other side (like MSNBC) says.. This clip was just a preview https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nc2KHjGz0Co

    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...

    "Hitler took a long time to get where he was and he had to do a lot of other things. Trump is going much faster," Christie Whitman says Christie Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey, deleted a tweet in which she said Adolf Hitler "has nothing on" President Donald Trump, but in an exclusive interview with NBC New York, she says she stands by her statement. Her tweet was a response to the New York Times' report about a graphic and violent parody video that depicts a likeness of the president shooting and stabbing political opponents and members...

    Anyone wondering why religious people still support Donald Trump, despite his flaws, need only watch a recording of the Democrats’ fanatical LGBTQ town hall last week. From Elizabeth Warren mocking religious males as incapable of finding a wife to Beto O’Rourke’s promise to strip tax benefits from religious institutions, or Cory Booker’s assertion that Catholics use religion to justify discrimination, you see the ugly face of militant secularism and coercion. It is frightening that every one of the nine Democratic candidates who took part in the CNN event has signed up to extreme policies that attack religious liberty and radically...

    "The Five" discussed Monday whether or not Democrats are underestimating President Trump and his ability to connect with voters. Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera made the case that the president's Friday rally showed that he will be "formidable." "I'm telling you no Democrat could match that enthusiasm, even with Beyonce they couldn't get their kind of a crowd and keep that crowd for as long as he did," Geraldo said Monday. "He had them spellbound. He is a master performer." Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., during a Friday night rally in Louisiana, saying "Nancy Pelosi hates the United...

"I've said time and time again that this is unacceptable, that if you come after Joe Biden, you're going to have to deal with me in this case. There is no — as you said — these are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies, plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesmen of our country, not our party, but our country.

    DES MOINES — A Democratic presidential field that has struggled to precisely define its general election indictment of Donald Trump appears finally to have found it. In the wake of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas — the latter of which was tied to a suspect whose anti-immigrant sentiments led to the killing of 22 people — candidates are road-testing a withering argument that draws a direct line between gun violence and the president’s racist rhetoric. “We are living with a toxic brew of two different things, each of which is claiming lives and each of which represents a national...

    President Trump on Sunday forcefully denounced two mass shootings in Ohio and Texas, saying "hate has no place in our country." As the president spoke, top Democratic presidential candidates -- including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Cory Booker -- demanded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell recall Congress from its recess, currently slated to last until the second week of September, to vote on initiatives to curb gun violence. Addressing reporters in Morristown, New Jersey, Trump promised "we're going to take care" of the problem. He said he's been speaking to the attorney general, FBI director and members of Congress and...

    Booker and Beto O'Rourke both cited the president's rhetoric and stoking of racial division in the wake of the Texas shooting. Sen. Cory Booker placed blame on President Donald Trump and his racist rhetoric for a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left at least 20 people dead. The shooting is being investigated as an act of domestic terror and a hate crime after officials said that they believed, but have not confirmed, a manifesto filled with anti-immigrant and white supremacist language was posted online and written by the gunman. “I think, at the end of the day, especially...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-Mass.) strong performance in this week’s Democratic presidential debates invigorated supporters who see her as slowly but surely making the case that she’s the best Democrat to take on President Trump. Warren and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) were widely seen as the biggest winners of the two debates, along with Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), who tangled with former Vice President Joe Biden in the week’s second debate. Sanders and Warren were the stars on the first night, and they avoided battling one another while presenting a united front against centrists arguing against the progressive proposals.

    Joe Biden survived the second round of Democratic presidential debates, but it became more apparent that over half the 22-person field is irrelevant and should get out, the sooner the better. The former vice president was repeatedly under attack on health care, criminal justice, immigration and abortion. He stumbled sometimes, but overall was sharper than his mediocre performance in the first debate a month ago. This won't assuage fears of mainstream Democrats that the 76-year-old Biden may not be up to the challenge of a protracted primary fight and bitter battle against Donald Trump. Still he was sufficiently engaged to...

    America doesn’t lack for superhero movies in the summer of 2019: an X-Men sequel will premiere a few days from now, followed in July by another Spiderman instalment. But what of the Democrats’ search for a superhero of their own? May I suggest: Aquaman? Here’s why the submariner seems appropriate (other than the film’s preachy environmentalism): remove former Vice President Joe Biden and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg from this Quinnipiac Poll of 2020 Democratic candidates and what one discovers is a field that’s “underwater” (higher negatives than positives). Biden’s numbers: 49% favorable; 39% negative. His rivals for the nomination:...

    Donations from Trump and his family add another wrinkle to a Democratic primary where candidates are trumpeting their distance from the president. Kamala Harris received money from Donald Trump as recently as six years ago. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner hosted a Park Avenue fundraiser for Cory Booker. Kirsten Gillibrand took in Trump family donations three times across a seven-year period — and then gave a similar amount of money to a nonprofit years later after the president mocked her in a tweet. As the president gears up for his re-election fight, donor records show that six of the declared...

    Just a few observations that I see few people out there making. 1. Keep in mind that virtually ALL absentee ballots that are arriving now were MAILED on or about the time of the Judge K hearings & almost certainly will reflect that outrage. 2. I am hearing rumblings---can't put much solid behind it---that DemoKKKrats are really, really getting worried. At every level. In AZ, Enema has just imploded with one scandal after another, in NV Heller has built his lead, in ND, MO, TX, and TN, the Rs have settled into solid leads (and no, Betamale has NEVER, EVER...

    U.S. Sen. Cory Booker made one last attempt to derail the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, urging his 4.1 million Twitter followers to flood the Senate switchboard in opposition. Booker, D-N.J., issued his call to action as senators pored over a new FBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault leveled against Kavanaugh. "The time to call your senators is now," Booker tweeted with the hashtags "Stop Kavanaugh" and "Believe Survivors."
