    The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced Wednesday that a New Jersey medical group had settled for $100,000 for refusing to allow religious exemptions to the company’s influenza vaccine policy, according to a press release.

The EEOC found that the company had failed to meet the requirements for religious accommodation under the Title...

    A federal judge has blocked sections of New Jersey's new concealed carry law that prohibits firearms in "sensitive" areas following a legal challenge from gun rights groups. In the ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Renee Marie Bumb issued a preliminary injunction barring the state from enforcing sections of a law preventing licensed firearm owners from carrying guns in government buildings, libraries, public transportation and daycare centers, among other locations. "The Constitution leaves the states some measures to combat handgun violence," she wrote. But what the Second Amendment prohibits the States from doing, and what the state of New Jersey has...

    Walt Whitman spent half his life writing and revising “Leaves of Grass,” his epic poem of a young man’s journey of self-discovery in a young country, America as it grows into a democracy. Whitman was 35 years old when he self-published the first edition of “Leaves of Grass” in 1855, and he was still adding to it when he died in Camden, New Jersey on March 26, 1892, at the age of 72.

    New Jersey Republican Robert Singer has had enough and wants to change New Jersey's Chris Christie era Bail Reform Act. LAKEWOOD, NJ – Let’s face it. Bail reform isn’t working. New Jerseyans watch the news daily only to see violent crimes being perpetrated against society by violent repeat criminals who oftentimes commit new crimes hours or days after getting released under the state’s critically flawed bail reform act. Bail reform was introduced in New Jersey as a ballot referendum in New Jersey, championed by then-governor Chris Christie, an avid supporter of bail reform, and repeatedly attacked those who said it...

    As he mulls another bid for president — a decision he said he will make within months — Chris Christie is confronting the critics of one of the marquee achievements of his administration: bail reform. When he was governor, Christie led a bipartisan effort in New Jersey to overhaul the way courts decide who gets locked up before trial. “We have a country right now that seems to be crying out, or at least they say they’re crying out, for some bipartisan accomplishment,” the two-term former Republican governor told a crowd ahead of a discussion hosted by the Christie Institute...

    The Democrat-run city of Newark, New Jersey, recently formalized its sister city partnership with the Hindu nation of Kailasa. Evidently, city officials did not consult a map before doing so. The "United States of Kailasa" does not exist. It is the invention of an accused rapist who has been on the run from Indian authorities since 2019 for child abduction and other crimes. Newark residents have spoken out about Democrat officials' failed foray into foreign policy, questioning whether anyone at City Hall is capable of performing a simple Google search.

    In response to the Bruen decision, a few states have decided to defy the Supreme Court. The first was New York, which took the extraordinary step to declare an emergency, call the legislature into an emergency session, and pass a complicated, extensive statute which criminalized the carry of firearms in such a manner as to render carry outside the home impractical. In spite of several lawsuits contesting the New York law, other states have followed New York’s example. One of those states is New Jersey. Bill A4769 (ACS) was passed into law on December 22, 2022.The lawsuit, KOONS v. REYNOLDS,...
