GROSSMAN: American Jews need to Stop Bashing Our Friends & Supporting our Enemies

Democrats And Media Target Trump For Pittsburgh Massacre JEWS ARE SAFE WHEN AMERICA IS GREAT Somers Point, NJ, October 31, 2018 – Instead of joining the City of Pittsburgh and nation in mourning, the far-left mainstream media and leading Democrats in Washington have put their disgraceful spin machine into high gear claiming that President Trump is somehow responsible for the deadliest anti-Semitic shooting in American history, and by doing so, only further fuel hatred and division across America.

We pray for those who perished and their loved ones, and our hearts go out to the brave police officers... Read more →

We haven’t learned the lessons of Sandy. “As we commemorate the sixth anniversary for Hurricane Sandy, we should never forget the impact it had on New Jersey. Many lives, communities, homes, and coastal areas were devastated. The fact is, we’re not... Read more →

Kellyanne Conway Upsets Elites Again

October 29, 2018 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on reaction to Kellyanne Conway's remark today on the synagogue massacre: Kellyanne Conway is being misrepresented by several media outlets, all of which have seized upon her comments regarding the massacre at the Pittsburgh synagogue. On the October 29 edition of "Fox and Friends," she discussed what happened, noting that "late-night comedians" who are busy "making fun of people who express religion" contribute to the "anti-religiosity in this country." She is right about that. Importantly, she never blamed these entertainers for the killings, though that is the way it is being spun.,,,, and are just some of the media outlets saying Conway "blamed" the killings on late-night comedians. Most absurd of them all is the left-wing "Mother Jones." It not only said Conway was wrong, it blamed "white supremacy" for the shootings. More accurate was Read more →

NRA:ILA News: Republican Mayor Survives Recall Effort After Twitter-Checking David Hogg

SUPPORT NRA-ILA Fortunes seem to rise and fall on Twitter with alarming regularity. But the platform may not be an equal opportunity soapbox, with some opinions reportedly getting more exposure than others and some speakers seemingly operating with greater impunity. That’s why it was refreshing this week to see the people of Waterville, Me. stand behind their Republican mayor, Nick Isgro, after an effort was launched to recall him from office. Mayor Isgro’s supposed offense? Calling gun control activist David Hogg to task in a tweet. The story began last March when Fox News personality Laura Ingraham tweeted about Hogg’s rejection by several California universities, adding perhaps to lessen the sting that that it was “totally predictable given acceptance rates.” Hogg responded by tweeting a list of the top advertisers on Ingraham’s show, encouraging his own hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers to contact them and threaten a boycott if...

NJ Sierra Club Opinion: NJ Fights Against Trump’s Clean Car Standards Rollbacks

Trenton NJ (October 29,2018)--Attorney General Gurbir S. Grewal has filed comments on behalf of New Jersey, and alongside 20 other states, demanding a withdrawal of the EPA’s proposed elimination of the Clean Car Standards. The Environmental Protection Agency and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has proposed to eliminate these standards that help reduce air pollution from vehicles. The standards were adopted by the Obama Administration in 2012 to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through federal vehicle fuel economy standards. “New Jersey is standing up to the Trump Administration by filing these comments objecting to the clean car standards. By eliminating the Clean Car Standards, Trump is siding with Big Oil and corporate polluters over our environment and clean air technology. This affects New Jersey more than any other state because 45% of our pollution comes from automobiles. We also get impacted because we are a corridor state getting pollution from... Read more →

Progress Has Been Made And More Reforms Targeted Somers Point, NJ, October 29, 2018 – You wouldn’t know it from the Democrat’s deceptive election season advertising, but the Republican led government under President Trump has made great strides in providing affordable health care for the American people, despite needing to overcome Democrat obstruction to do so. “President Obama looked directly into TV cameras and deliberately lied about Obamacare’s high cost and people being able to keep their doctors. Nancy Pelosi said that the Obamacare legislation had to be passed without reading it so that Congress could learn what was in it. Now the Democrats are saying that Republicans will not allow health insurance to cover preexisting conditions. Once again, they’re lying. Protection for patients with preexisting conditions is a Republican priority,” said Seth Grossman, the Republican candidate for Congress in NJ’s 2nd District. “The truth is that in two years...

Murphy Speaks on Sandy: Actions Needed More Than Ever

(New Jersey Sierra Club)(Union Beach, NJ)(October 29,2018)--- Today Governor Murphy is speaking on the Anniversary of Hurricane Sandy alongside Senators Menendez and Booker and Congressman Pallone. The New Jersey Sierra Club has concerns that despite strong words from the Murphy Administration, we don’t have the action to make us stronger than the next storm. According to a 2018 report by the United Nations IPCC, we may have as little as 12 years to reach critical levels in stopping emissions before Earth reaches a dangerous temperature. A Rutgers study notes that sea level may rise almost 3 feet by 2100. “Although he’s made strong statements on rebuilding after Sandy, he still hasn’t changed Christie’s policies. Many lives, communities, homes, and coastal areas were devastated during Sandy. These extreme weather events are happening way too often and with more frequency and we need immediate action from the Murphy Administration. We must restore... Read more →
