    The New Jersey shore town Wildwood closed its popular boardwalk for a few hours early Sunday morning after hordes of “unruly, undisciplined” teens descended on the walkway, local officials said. Police shut down the boardwalk to the public just past midnight after receiving an “irrepressible number” of complaints about an “extremely large number of young adults & juveniles” visiting the boardwalk for Memorial Day Weekend, according to a statement from authorities. City officials did not cite a specific incident that led them to shut down the boardwalk, but claimed that cops were addressing “civil unrest.” Conditions “began to deteriorate despite...

    The Mayor of Wildwood, New Jersey, Ernie Troiano, Jr., told Newsmax on Tuesday that former President Donald Trump's Saturday rally was well received by the oceanfront community and Wildwood would "love to have him come back." On Saturday, Trump spoke before an enthusiastic crowd in the deep blue state of New Jersey. While estimates vary on the official numbers, Troiano said it was easily larger than the 40,000 they get at many music festivals. Trump made sure to praise his hosts on Saturday telling the crowd, "Millions of people in so-called blue states are joining our movement based on love,...

    Picture this: A crowd of almost 100,000 on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey, watches patiently as an artist standing on a giant stage furiously paints an American flag to the tune of “America The Beautiful.” As the music crescendos to the last “sea to shining sea,” the artist puts his finishing touch on the flag and then begins to peel something off the painting, revealing the familiar hair and then the face and body of former President Donald Trump, wearing a collared, pullover shirt with the number “47” emblazoned on the chest. The crowd goes wild. Watch:

    Trump: Is there anything better than a Trump rally? These liberal singers, they actually vote for me. You know, like Bruce Springsteen. We have a much bigger crowd than Bruce Springsteen. Right? — Acyn (@Acyn) May 11, 2024 A spokesperson for the city of Wildwood backed Trump’s claim. Lisa Fagan told The Associated Press she estimated the crowd had to be between 80,000 and 100,000 people, based on her observations of smaller events which took place in the same space. But footage from the rally made those stats fairly hard to believe. While Trump fans packed the rafters behind...

    Former President Donald Trump criticized President Joe Biden for setting “the world on fire” and referred to comments made earlier this week that he would withhold weapons and artillery from Israel. During a rally at Wildwood, New Jersey, on Saturday, Trump referred to comments Biden made during a CNN interview in which he said he would withhold weapons from Israel if it invaded Rafah, Hamas’s last stronghold. Biden’s comments came days after Hamas had fired a barrage of rockets from Rafah toward the Kerem Shalom border crossing, which is used as the main entry point for humanitarian aid entering the...

    Former President Donald Trump on Saturday night said President Biden is "surrounded by fascists" at the White House running a "radicalized" Democratic Party, ripping his response to anti-Israel campus protests. "He's surrendering our college campuses to anarchists, jihadist freaks and anti-American extremists who are trying to tear down our American flag," Trump told a crowd of tens of thousands in Wildwood, New Jersey. "They want to tear down every single place they go. They want to rip down our flag.

    Donald Trump Saturday campaigned in New Jersey, but social media was focused on someone he pointed to in the crowd. Trump delivered remarks at a rally in Wildwood, New Jersey. The former president's introduction included a mention of his "golfing friends." "He's doing quite a great job. What do you think, Lawrence? Doing a great job!" the ex-president said at his weekend. "Look at those to guys, O.J., Lawrence, my golfing friends. We don't have to agree on everything!" Later in the speech, Trump again mentioned "O.J." and "Lawrence," calling them "great guys" and claiming that they once played football....

Julie Ann Marsh, 56, of the Village of Pine Ridge, took a seat at the outside bar at the restaurant, but the seat had been claimed by another couple, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department. The couple apparently confronted Marsh when they returned from the restroom. The man informed Marsh she was in his chair, prompting a verbal altercation. Marsh announced she was “not getting...

    A Florida man has been arrested after a Netflix binge and traffic stop led police to psychedelic mushrooms. According to police, 44-year-old Christopher Singleton was pulled over last Friday night on State Road 44 in Wildwood, for a license plate violation. Police say the pickup truck Singleton was driving was unregistered. As the officer approached the truck, he could smell marijuana and asked Singleton if there were drugs in the truck, to which Singleton replied, “Yes, I have like oil, like vape stuff.” During a search of the truck, police found a Crown Royal bag tucked into the center console...

    A father and daughter were arrested after a family feud over take-out Chinese food. Wildwood police were called Friday night to the PepperTree Apartments after a woman dialed 911 to report a disturbance.

    My wife is not a big fan of President Trump. So when I got back from covering the Trump rally in Wildwood Tuesday, she asked me a question: “Were there any empty seats?” Were there any empty seats at Woodstock? I’ve never covered a Trump event that didn’t evoke images of that 1969 rock festival. As with Woodstock, the organizers have no need to advertise the event widely. The mere mention of it is enough to attract massive throngs of the faithful. Another similarity is the opportunity to hear a lot of great rock music from the 1960s. I arrived...

    WILDWOOD-President Trump has come and gone and the only remaining evidence is a happy mayor and fistfuls of dollars in the pockets of local businesses and hotels who would otherwise have been continuing their long wait for the summer tourism season. Hotels were at capacity and businesses were active as tens of thousands of Trump supporters came from near and far, some waiting days to be the first to see the President at Tuesday’s rally. It was a small, but appreciated local economic boost for a city that lays nearly dormant from November through April every year. Wildwood is New...

    President Donald Trump appears to be on easy street when it comes to his potential re-election. In fact, his chances are so good that even liberal talking-head Chris Matthews was forced to admit that the president is sitting pretty leading up to November. During MSNBC’s day-long coverage of the impeachment trial, the “Hardball” host decided to take a moment to “put it all together” for the audience. Unfortunately, it may not be what the left-leaning group of listeners wants to hear. First, Matthews pointed out the increasing popularity of self-avowed Democratic socialist Bernie Sanders, who was recently involved in a...
