NJ Republican Candidate for Governor Releases Statement on Project Veritas Video

The Ciattarelli campaign released the following statement in response to the Project Veritas video released this evening: “The video released tonight appears to show high-level Phil Murphy campaign advisors revealing that the Governor is secretly planning to implement a statewide vaccine mandate if re-elected, but refusing to do so before the election because it would hurt him politically. If true, this is the ultimate hypocrisy and an appalling lack of transparency. Our campaign has long suggested that the Governor was too willing to put political science before actual science during this pandemic. If this tape is verified, Governor Murphy has a lot of explaining to do. Any attempt by the Governor or his allies to distract attention away from that responsibility or blame others is unacceptable,” said Stami Williams, Ciattarelli campaign spokeswoman. Read more →

2 Ways Electronic Signatures Are Becoming Safer

For as long as signing a document has been one of the main ways of making an agreement official, people have signed documents in ink. It’s understandable if many of us might have presumed that would always be the case. Due to the advent of the Internet, e-commerce, and even electronic filing of motions with courts, ink signatures may steaily become a relic of the past. It’s increasingly common for electronic versions of documents to be signed with electronic signatures instead of ink. That’s not to say everyone has been quick to embrace the innovation. Some have been reluctant to do so because they fear that electronic signatures, or esignatures, are less secure than signatures in hand-written ink. This is an understandable concern, but it may be an unfounded one. It’s already clear that e-signatures are at least as safe as ink. There’s also strong evidence to suggest e-signatures may...

Investigative journalist Amy Westervelt unveils website, podcast Today, just ahead of Congress’s Big Oil disinformation hearings this Thursday, independent investigative climate journalist Amy Westervelt launches Rigged, a new web project and companion podcast focused on the history and functionality of disinformation. It's a rich archive of rare or never-seen disinformation material that Amy has dug up over years of research. "I started Rigged because I realized I had hundreds of documents on my desk that weren't doing any good there, and that could be useful to other reporters working on stories about disinformation, ranging from climate denial and Covid hoaxers to the Big Lie around the election,” Westervelt explains. "There's a general sense out there that disinformation is a relatively new thing, and I think it's important for people to understand that it's more than a century old, that American corporations invented many of the techniques we're still seeing today,...

Bryant Taylor Receives Lengthy Sentence for Fatal Overdose of Customer

BURLINGTON CITY NJ (October 26, 2021)--Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina announced that a Pemberton Township drug dealer was sentenced yesterday to 25 years in New Jersey state prison for causing the death of a customer who bought fentanyl-laced heroin from him in 2017. The sentence was handed down to Bryant Taylor, 42, by the Hon. Gerard H. Breland, J.S.C. “In addition to basing this significant sentence on finding the defendant to be a persistent offender, we are gratified the Court emphasized the need for deterrence in the midst of the ongoing drug addiction crisis,” Prosecutor Coffina said. “Fentanyl is a deadly poison, responsible for the majority of the nearly 100,000 overdose deaths in our country last year. Dealing fentanyl demonstrates extreme recklessness, and a resulting death is entirely foreseeable. This sentence should reinforce the message to dealers that they will pay a steep price in Burlington County if their drugs... Read more →

Ciattarelli Notices Slight Improvement In Political Betting Markets, But Murphy Still Holds Strong Lead

–Odds Say Bridget Kelly Unlikely to Win Bergen County Clerk Election– Copenhagen – October 26, 2021 – Jack Ciattarelli’s odds to win the 2021 New Jersey Gubernatorial Election have improved slightly in the last two weeks, according to betting aggregators (See Disclaimer Below).Since October 13, Ciattarelli’s odds improved from 12/1 (7.7% implied probability) to 9/1 (10%).

FTC Ramping Up Efforts to Stop Companies from Using False/Misleading Earnings Claims

October 26, 2021 by Seena Gressin Attorney, Division of Consumer & Business Education, FTC Companies offering work, training, business opportunities, investments, or other money-making opportunities often try to grab your attention by talking about how much money you can make. But all too often, the potential earnings they describe are exaggerated or even flat-out phony, and people who take the plunge instead lose significant time — and money. The FTC is ramping up its efforts to stop companies from using false or misleading earnings claims to draw people into their business ventures. The agency sent notices to more than 1,100 multi-level marketing companies, business opportunities, franchises, investment coaching companies, and “gig” companies. The notices remind the businesses they must follow well-settled law when making earnings claims to potential participants, workers, and buyers. Among other things, the notices tell the companies that they: can’t make false, misleading or deceptive claims about... Read more →

ARE REVERBERATING THROUGH BETTING MARKETS AHEAD OF NFL WEEK 8, ACCORDING TO THELINES.COM (LAS VEGAS) — Any time the Kansas City Chiefs have lost in recent years, it has become the talk of the NFL. But when the Chiefs take a blowout loss and star quarterback Patrick Mahomes gets knocked out of the game, as they did Sunday, the odds market is bound to shift, according to TheLines, which tracks odds in the U.S. regulated sports betting markets. Last week’s lookahead lines had the Chiefs as 13-point favorites over the hapless New York Giants, according to a consensus of the nation’s largest legal online sportsbooks — including BetMGM, Caesars, DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, SugarHouse, and Unibet.

After passing concussion protocols, Mahomes will likely... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Biden Nominee For Health Post Is Alarming

BILL DONOHUE | CNBNews Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a Biden nominee who is a threat to public safety: If credentials were sufficient grounds for holding a position in the Biden administration, Atul Gawande would merit a unanimous vote. He is a Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School, a graduate of Harvard Medical School, a Rhodes Scholar, a distinguished author, and the former CEO of a healthcare organization. This is surely why President Biden has nominated him to be assistant administrator of the Bureau for Global Health at the U.S. Agency for International Development. There are very good reasons, however, why Senator Marco Rubio sounded the alarm on Gawande. He is a defender of infanticide, a reflection, no doubt, of his crass utilitarian philosophy. In short, credentials, no matter how stellar, tell us nothing about the ethics of the person. Rubio, who sits on the Senate Foreign... Read more →

Van Cleve, a Revolutionary War veteran and statesman, held enslaved people as a private citizen and spoke out in support of slavery and strengthened restrictions on enslaved peoples as a New Jersey legislator around the turn of the 19th century. The house that had conventionally bore his name was part of the property Rider purchased in 1956 as it prepared to move its campus from Trenton to Lawrenceville. The renaming was recommended by the Task Force on Rider and the History of Slavery. Formed in the summer... Read more →
