Yes, we said that. Don't get used to it. | For the first time in the history, we agree with something that Donald Trump said. Here it is: "Christie can't win because of his past."

Drone Owners Overwhelm Federal Government’s Registration System

Natalie Johnson / @nataliejohnsonn / The Federal Aviation Administration appeared unprepared to accommodate the flood of new drone owners during the holiday season after requiring that Americans register their drones before lift off.

The FAA said last week an “overwhelming number of people” successfully registered, but “a small number of users reported performance issues,” driving the site operators to temporarily suspend online registration for maintenance. The agency received more than 45,000 applications during the first two days of registration. Jason... Read more →

Here Are the Police Officers the Media Should Have Talked About in 2015

Scott Erickson / @SGErickson / December 28, 2015 2015 was a rough year for American law enforcement. There has been a seemingly unending chorus of anti-police protests, accentuated by inflammatory and often dangerous rhetoric, which has inspired a hostility toward law enforcement that’s not been seen in decades. While some might now think this is because corruption is endemic to law enforcement, the truth is that most police officers go above and beyond the call of duty each day to protect their communities. The unfortunate and wholly inaccurate conclusion of widespread corruption is inspired more by innuendo, than by fact—and... Read more →

Letters to the Editor: Help Us Beat Machine Politics in South Jersey

When I first decided to run for Congress, my greatest fear was that if I were to run a poor campaign or did not do well, that it would be a setback not just for me, but for the ideas driving our campaign.

The political establishment said victory was impossible. But then we came along. And in just a few months we’ve shown them they are... Read more →

How Overregulation Led to the Collapse of Obamacare’s Largest Co-Op

Melissa Quinn / @MelissaQuinn97 / December 22, 2015 A new report examining the collapse of Health Republic of New York, Obamacare’s largest co-op, said its failure—which may lead to a $265-million loss of taxpayer dollars—can be attributed in part to heightened regulatory control by the state. According to the analysis from the Albany, New York-based Empire Center, a “breakdown” in oversight from the state Department of Financial Services and artificial cuts in Health Republic’s premiums may have led to the ultimate failure of the consumer operated and oriented plan, or co-op. Of the 23 co-ops created under the health care... Read more →
