JUDGE DISMISSES NJ WATCHDOG'S LAWSUIT REQUESTING CHRISTIE'S TRAVEL RECORDS

By Mark Lagerkvist | New Jersey Watchdog The question of whether Gov. Chris Christie must obey New Jersey state travel rules was left unanswered by a decision Tuesday in Mercer County Superior Court. Judge Mary C. Jacobson dismissed a lawsuit by a New Jersey Watchdog reporter seeking records of who paid for Christie’s unofficial out-of-state trips. She ruled the reporter’s Open Public Records Act request was “overbroad and lacking in specifics and clarity.” To the contrary, the records request “specifically included documentation of the payment arrangement on the third-party’s letterhead, as required by Treasury Circular 12-14-OMB.” In addition, the reporter also sought various other records on those journeys. The governor’s office denied the request, stating it was “unclear … and therefore invalid.” After the reporter filed the lawsuit, the state argued the governor was exemptfrom a rule promulgated by his administration. “Our position is that the regulation does not apply,”...

Harris Poll: Americans Are Worried About Economy Among Other Things

NEW YORK, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The economy remains something of a paradox. As leading indicators continue to move into positive territory and the Dow Jones Industrial Index remains near 17,000, all should indicate a rosy situation. But this doesn't seem to translate into a rosy opinion of how the economy is actually doing. The American public remains concerned about many aspects of the overall economic picture and, more importantly, how it impacts them in their wallets and savings accounts. These are some of the results of The Harris Poll® of 2,306 adults surveyed online between July 16 and 21, 2014. (To see the full results including data tables, click here) The President is a figure who the public blames when things are not going well economically but rewards when things are going well. And, only three in ten Americans (30%) give President Obama positive ratings for his handling... Read more →

COMMENTARY: Obama's biggest faults on display

No person comes to the Oval Office without faults. And, doubtless, the everyday stress of the presidency and the relentless glare of the spotlight would seem to intensify and enhance those faults. Indeed, finding fault with the one public official elected by all the people of the country would appear to be our national duty, if not our honor. Was Richard Nixon's paranoia his downfall? Were Jimmy Carter and his cohorts really that incompetent, that clueless? Could Franklin Delano Roosevelt have been any more imperious? Why was Ronald Reagan so hesitant to dismiss those who had not served him well? What price did we pay for John F. Kennedy's inexperience? And was Lyndon B. Johnson really that crude? Hey, our leaders aren't perfect. For those of us in search of bigger-than-life heroes, this can be a tough pill to swallow. Which makes reality all the harder to face in the... Read more →


WILSON: VOTE ON BAIL REFORM TODAY

press release July 31, 2014 (TRENTON) – Assemblyman Gilbert “Whip” Wilson (D-Camden/Gloucester) has released the following statement in support of the bail reform proposals being considered by the Legislature. The combined bill S946 and resolution SCR128 would deny bail to violent offenders and allow for bail alternatives for non-violent, indigent offenders: “It is time to make real changes to our criminal justice system. The proposed legislation before us is our best shot at creating a balanced bail process that protects our communities from dangerous offenders while developing alternatives for low-risk individuals with few resources. These measures will stop the discrimination inherent in our current system where poor people are punished just for being poor. Our jails are filled with individuals arrested for non-violent crimes who simply can’t afford the smallest bail amounts. I am hopeful we’ll vote on S946 and SCR128 today and send a message that this brand of... Read more →

Animal Rights Groups Doing Little to Protect Elephants

WASHINGTON, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today Safari Club International (SCI) exposed the hypocrisy of five animal rights groups in a new report. The report, "A Stampede of Hypocrisy: How Animal Rights Activists Poach Elephant Donations," counters the high-profile propaganda campaign against the sustainable and highly regulated hunting of African elephants, which activists use to push their radical political agenda. Despite the trumpeting from these activists that they're "speaking for" the interests of elephants, the report points to figures showing the millions of dollars contributed by hunters to African communities and anti-poaching efforts dwarfs the paltry expenditures by the animal rights groups in sub-Saharan Africa. View the report here: https://firstforhunters.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/a-stampede-of-hypocrisy.pdf The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), its affiliate Humane Society International (HSI), the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and Born Free USA collectively raise $170 million yet only about...

USA Wide Truck Driver Recruitment Survey

NORTH BERGEN, New Jersey, July 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Where are all the truck drivers? This is a commonly asked question that perplexes operational managers and recruitment officers alike as thousands of drivers retire every year with very little of the new generation coming forth to fill those vacant trucks. Transportation leaders are aware that without a revolving door of drivers, organizations cannot meet customer demands, which ultimately affects consumers who will feel the impact when they go to the store and see aisles of empty shelves. The cold hard fact of the matter is that truck drivers keep our economy moving, and the fewer that enter the workforce the greater the demand is to hire drivers. At National Retail Systems, Inc. we have been asking the very same question, and have developed a truck driver survey to find out how to refresh our recruitment efforts. Recruitment in the year 2014... Read more →


New Jersey Considering an Article V Convention to Halt Overreach of Federal Government

PURCELLVILLE, Va., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- New Jersey AssemblymanMichael Carroll filed ACR 216, calling for an Article V Convention of States to restrain the power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. Article V of the Constitution allows state legislatures to call a Convention of States to propose constitutional amendments that would reign in Washington, D.C. These amendments could include a balanced budget amendment, a term limits amendment, amongst several others. "Freedom is a bi-partisan matter," said Victoria Jakelsky, the legislative liaison for the New Jersey Convention of States Project. "Liberty and justice are the American way. Though many Americans are weary and feel as if efforts to defend freedom are pointless, we have a duty to stand firm. We are taking this duty seriously here in New Jersey as Assemblyman Carroll, a fierce opponent of 'judicial usurpation of the legislative function,' leads the fight." States call a Convention...
