CORRECTION regarding City Police Chief/City Administrator

CORRECTION/UPDATED( September 10, 2022)—It has been brought to our attention by Police Chief/City Administrator Brian Morrell that he has three and half more years to work before he can retire; that his salary is based on the last year of his employment. Morrell also took exception to our statement that no one could perform two jobs and do them efficiently. Stating, "You do not know what I do or don't do, you just assumed. Why do you continue to bash me?" Our position remains that no one can perform two jobs, and do them well. And, if we are wrong why have taxpayers been paying different salaries to a police chief and city administrator all these years. That is our opinion, and it is also been the opinion of other people we have spoken with. We have no personal vendetta against Mr. Morrell and have no reason to "bash" him.... Read more →

CNBNews graphic file NEWARK, N.J. – A Union County man who previously served as a staff member in the New Jersey Senate today admitted his role in a conspiracy to falsely inflate the invoices that a political consultant submitted to various campaigns, political action committees, and IRS 501(c)(4) organizations, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced. Antonio Teixeira, 43, of Elizabeth, New Jersey, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge John Michael Vazquez to an information charging him with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of tax evasion. According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court: From 2014 to 2018, Teixeira conspired with Sean Caddle, and Caddle’s political consulting firms, to defraud various campaigns, political action committees, and 501(c)(4) organizations of $107,800. Teixeira then failed to report this illicit income on tax forms that he filed with the IRS during those same years.... Read more →

(image courtesy of www.VOA.com) WASHINGTON, D.C.--Elmer Stewart Rhodes III, the founder and leader of the Oath Keepers, and Kelly Meggs, the leader of the Florida chapter of the organization, were found guilty by a jury today of seditious conspiracy and other charges for crimes related to the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The verdict followed an eight-week trial and three days of deliberations. No sentencing date was... Read more →


GUEST OPINION---DAVIS: “There is clear smoking gun evidence of foreign corruption in China and Ukraine”

On Friday, Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Article III Project, joined The Ingraham Angle to discuss the appointment of a special counsel to investigate President Trump: “Biden just made another public comment about this several days ago. Also, remember that the Biden White House waived President Trump's claim of executive privilege and paved the way for this Mar-a-Lago raid. We need to step back and remember a couple of things. This special counsel will investigate the noncrimes of objecting to the presidential election. If it were a crime, the Democrats would have been charged in 1969, 2001, 2005, and 2017 when they objected to the election. They're investigating the noncrime of a former president taking a personal copy of his presidential records when he leaves office. He is specifically allowed to do that under the Presidential Records Act. And where the heck is the special counsel to investigate... Read more →


Article III Project: Regarding AG Garland Naming Special Counsel to Investigate Trump

WASHINGTON — Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Article III Project, issued the following statement after Attorney General Merrick Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate former President Donald Trump. Gloucestercitynews.net graphic files “By appointing a special counsel to investigate his boss’s top political enemy, Attorney General Merrick Garland continues to politicize and weaponize the Biden Justice Department, all while ignoring smoking-gun evidence of the Biden family’s foreign corruption. Garland announced he’s essentially giving his special counsel whatever he needs to investigate the non-crimes of objecting to a presidential election (like Democrats did in 1967, 2001, 2005, and 2017) and keeping personal copies of presidential records (like Clinton did with highly classified tapes hidden in his sock drawer), both expressly permitted by federal statutes. “The blatant political bias within the Biden Justice Department erodes trust from the American people that justice is fairly applied to everyone, regardless of their...

New Jersey Number 1 Again for the Wrong Reason

By Christian Wade | The Center Square contributor image source state of New Jersey (The Center Square)(November 18, 2022)--– New Jersey is the only state in the country where county-level political parties can endorse candidates in primary elections and give them preferential placement on the ballot. But a new poll, conducted by Fairleigh Dickinson University found that most New Jersey voters believe county-level parties should stay out of the balloting process. Under New Jersey's election laws, candidates nominated for primaries by local Democratic or Republican organizations are listed on a party, or county, line at the top of a ballot. Other candidates, including independent write-ins, are listed in other columns jokingly referred to as "ballot Siberia." The university's survey of 800 voters between Oct. 24 and Nov. 1 found at least 65% said they believe county-level political party organizations shouldn't be allowed to give endorsed candidates preferential ballot positions.

New Jersey Republicans Gain Win in 7th District

Candidates in New Jersey for the 7th Congressional District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives are Democratic incumbent Tom Malinowski and Republican challenger Tom Kean. AP File photos (The Center Square) – Republicans in New Jersey scored a victory Wednesday when Democratic U.S. Rep. Tom Malinowski conceded defeat in his race against Republican Tom Kean Jr. for the 7th District seat. The Associated Press had yet to call the race by 3 p.m. EST, but Malinowski, a two-term incumbent, congratulated Kean on Twitter late Wednesday morning. Kean had garnered more than 52% of the vote with 95% counted. Moments after Malinowski’s statement, Kean Jr. responded by thanking Malinowski for his service, and the voters for backing him. “Throughout this district and throughout this nation, we have been given an opportunity to change the course of history,” Kean wrote. “I am incredibly grateful to the voters of the Seventh District...

1000s of Uncounted Votes in Nevada, as Nation Waits

By Madison Hirneisen | The Center Square (The Center Square) – Officials in Nevada’s most populous county say they are still processing thousands of ballots that came in through the mail and drop boxes, telling reporters Wednesday that it will likely take days to get to a final tally. Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria said the state has just over 14,700 ballots to count from drop-off boxes on Monday and USPS pick up of mail ballots on Tuesday. On top of that, the county has around 12,700 ballots from Wednesday picked up by USPS that still need to be processed, which Gloria said will likely happen in the coming days.As counting continues in Clark County, which contains Las Vegas, control of the U.S. Senate is still to be determined.

Sellinger announced today that the public can call the Office’s Election Day Hotline at 888-636-6596 to report voting rights concerns, threats against election officials, or any other activity that would interfere with the right to vote in the District of New Jersey.

Gloucester City Taxpayers/Voters Want to Know

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (November 5, 2022)--Regarding the November 2 article Gloucester City Council Candidates Speechless written by columnist Dorothy Philbin, Josh Twyford, the chair of the Gloucester City Republican Committee, stated in a comment, "Dorothy was given a response from the Republican ticket." We suggest Mr. Twyford is referring to the four-minute PowerPoint presentation that Fanning submitted to her which she publicly acknowledged that she did receive it. Republican council candidate Jason Fanning submitted a PowerPoint presentation from his team. If it is finished in time, it will be published here. The production needs to be reformatted to be included in the Notebook. Ms. Philbin invited all seven candidates to sit with her for a one-on-one interview. Instead, Mr. Fanning offers a PowerPoint presentation that looked more like a campaign video. It had nothing to do with the issues she wanted to discuss. Out... Read more →

The Story Behind The Story:

Gloucester City Council Candidates Speechless

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (November 1, 2022)--A short time ago, I challenged our candidates for local offices to answer specific questions. Of the seven candidates, I heard from two. Republican council candidate Jason Fanning submitted a PowerPoint presentation from his team. The production needs to be reformatted to be included in the Notebook. If it is finished in time, it will be published here. On the Democratic side, I only heard from Derek Timm, who apologized that he wouldn't be able to meet with me. An e-mail from any of the candidates answering my overall question, "what is your vision for our city over the next several years?" would have been sufficient. But I didn't even get that. Do any of our leaders/candidates have a vision for our city, or are we just doing what comes naturally day-to-day? Doing what comes naturally, in my opinion, got us... Read more →

NJ Public Employees Sue Murphy for Discrimination

Public Employees and Their Union Sue Gov. Murphy for Discrimination Murphy’s policies further widen the pay equity gap for women and people of color, says union Trenton, NJ – AFSCME New Jersey Council 63 today announced that, on behalf of approximately 6,000 state employees, the union has filed a lawsuit in superior court against Gov. Phil Murphy and his administration for racial and gender-based discrimination. AFSCME represents front-line workers in New Jersey’s veterans homes, psychiatric hospitals, developmental centers, Division of Children and Families and others. The suit comes after the March 2022 decision by the governor to raise starting salaries for New Jersey correctional police officers (CPOs) by 20%, while also giving across the board increases of 8% on all steps to existing officers. Among the reasons cited by the state for the increases was the fact that CPOs “appear for work, as true professionals, ready to ensure safety, security,... Read more →


Guest Opinion: The New York Times Lambaste Bernie McGuirk

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on a New YorkTimes obituary on Bernie McGuirk: WABC legend Bernie McGuirk, who, along with Sid Rosenberg, commanded the number-one rated morning radio talk show in the New York area, “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” died on October 5. On October 19, the New York Times ran an obituary on him by Ed Shanahan that read more like a tract than an honest summary of his professional life. [Full disclosure: I knew and liked Bernie for many years.] McGuirk made a name for himself by working with Imus, the iconic radio talk-show host, for two decades; he was one of his sidekicks. Here is how the Times began its obit on him. “The two men were fired because of a racist exchange about the Rutgers women’s basketball team, marring, but not ending, their shared radio success. Bernard McGuirk, a New York radio fixture... Read more →


NJ Says: Gloucester City Violated Workers Sick Leave Law

CNBNews Point of View Those governing the City of Gloucester City, have lead the residents to believe that Great Things Are Happening in their City floating the above banner on city stationary for the last three decades and on other city owned literature and internet portals. Yet as we have stated before we keep looking for one thing that residents can point too and say with pride that "Great Things Are Really Happening in our City". It certainly hasn't happened with our property taxes. Since 2018 Gloucester City has been listed in the top 30 communities with the highest property taxes in the state of NJ. There was a slight reduction this year. But, the property taxes are still too much. Especially when you consider that Gloucester City is so poor it qualifieds to be an Abbott School District, one of 31. The City is so distressed it qualifies to... Read more →

A Challenge for our Gloucester City Council Candidates

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews This week I, as likely most of you, received election fliers from every candidate running for every office under the sun. I sent a letter to "one issue" Donald Norcross explaining that most average people are more concerned about putting gas into our cars, food onto the table, etc. I didn't hear back from Mr. Norcross, but I never really expected a reply. I also received fliers from our local candidates. They all seemed like very nice people, maybe some more qualified than the others but I didn't see what I was looking for. Our current mayor boasted that taxes had not been raised during his short tenure. He had a point. When is the last time our taxes hadn't been raised, just because....no of legitimate reason, just because? As poor as our city is, we pay the 30th highest taxes of the state's 589 communities....

But I still think what [Texas Governor] Abbott was doing has proven effective. Like, it’s flooded our system. We have more people in social services than we’ve ever had in history.

PayPal is Wrong to De-Bank Conservatives Says Davis

DAVIS: “PayPal is becoming the Google of consumer payments. It's becoming woke.” On Friday morning, Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, joined Fox News @ Night with Trace Gallagher to discuss PayPal’s new policies debanking conservatives. “Paypal, I think, is the second largest FinTech and consumer payments company on the planet just behind American Express and bigger than Visa and MasterCard. So their lawyers didn't review this? Their executives didn't review this? It just happened to be an error that they're gonna have this change of policy, and they're gonna fine their users $2,500 for misinformation, and no one caught it. It was just an error, just complete nonsense,” Davis said. … “PayPal is becoming the Google of consumer payments, it's becoming woke.

How Many Times Can You Vote?

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (October 17, 2022)--A not-for-profit organization, Public Interest Legal Foundation, announced the results of a New Jersey voter records study this week. The results were interesting but predictable. image courtesy of Dreamstime.com They found over 33,000 voters with fictitious birthdates. That doesn't seem like such a big deal but think about it for a minute. John Smith is age 21 and registered to vote. Then he goes back a week later and registers to vote as John Smith, age 51. Remember that in New Jersey and most states, it is illegal to ask for ID when voting. So, John Smith votes for himself and his father. Then there are duplicates. One person votes twice. There are 8,239 of them but that accounts for 16,478 votes. Would you believe in triplicates? Yes, 61 people are registered to vote three times. That amounts to 183 votes.... Read more →


CNB Political News: Claire Gustafson Campaign Signs

I’m Claire Gustafson, I was the Republican Party’s 2020 nominee for Congress in New Jersey’s First District. I’m proud of our race against the political cartel that rules South Jersey. With the help of the greatest volunteers any campaign has ever had we earned more votes than any Republican to run in New Jersey’s First Congressional District. We outperformed President Trump and our party’s nominee for US Senate. We earned the votes of more than 45,000 voters who are not registered Republicans. These are just a few reasons I have decided to run for Congress again in 2022. Unfortunately, South Jersey is ruled by a powerful political cartel. Our congressman is part of the cartel.

CNB Political News: WOKENESS at Kipp Cooper Norcross Whittier Middle School Must End

COLLINGSWOOD – Reacting to a published report that a teacher at KIPP Cooper Norcross Whittier Middle School lectured students on “they/them pronouns,” Republican candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s First Congressional District, Claire Gustafson, said, “Apparently, even in our schools, South Jersey’s political cartel does what it wants.” image courtesy of KIPP Norcross Academy “What South Jersey’s political cartel wants is to allow ‘indoctrinating’ students by teachers. It’s wrong, and in this case, ‘indoctrinating’ was the teacher’s chosen word, not mine,” Claire Gustafson said. “This teacher wrote on one of her videos, ‘Indoctrinating my students.’ Reports are that the school is supportive of this teacher This nonsense would not have been tolerated when I served on the school board.” Gustafson continued, “According to one report the KIPP Cooper Norcross Whittier Middle School teacher’s indoctrination of students didn’t stop at using they/them pronouns.

U.S. Senate Candidates Oz and Fetterman Vow More Support for Pennsylvania Police, But Forget the Details

By Anthony Hennen | The Center Square (The Center Square) – In Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race, the candidates have two familiar themes on crime: they support more funding for police, and their opponent doesn’t know what to do. However, articulating a detailed plan to lower crime hasn’t been forthcoming. Instead, campaigns have been focused more on personality, rather than solutions. Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz has called Democratic nominee Lt. Gov. John Fetterman soft on crime and accused him of not caring about crime victims. The two are battling for the seat being vacated by Republican Pat Toomey, and its among those considered most a toss-up by national politicos as both major parties wrestle for control of Congress. Oz’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment. In television ads and on the campaign train, Oz has emphasized his endorsements from police unions. “He will support efforts to ensure (the...

SJ POLITICS: Gloucester County Democrats Talk About Scary Stuff In Our Back Yard

The Only Scary Thing In A Gloucester County Backyard Is A Grave Dug By Democrats MULLICA HILL – "The last organization that should be talking about scary stuff in 'our backyard' is the Gloucester County Democratic Committee" Gloucester County GOP Chairwoman Jacci Vigilante said, commenting on a recent Democrat campaign mailer on which they claim Republicans “promise to do some scary stuff in our backyard.” “Gloucester County Democrats are as desperate in their political attacks as they were in the immediate aftermath of the tragic death of K9 Ember,” Vigilante said. “In the past several months the only thing scary in a Gloucester County backyard was Democrats burying K9 Ember in the fire marshal’s backyard before the prosecutor’s office was notified of her death.” “The reverse side of the mailer states that politicians should be taken at ‘their word.’” Vigilante continued, “We should take politicians at their word and remember...

GUEST OPINION: Newsom's Latest Sanctuary State Scam

Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s latest sanctuary state scam: Illegal aliens who crash our borders can find sanctuary in California. Women who want to abort their child, but live in states with restrictive abortion laws, can come to California to have a doctor kill their baby. Now young boys and girls who are sexually confused, and who live in states where puberty blockers and chemical castration are considered child abuse, can go to California where they will be “treated.” The contempt that California Gov. Gavin Newsom has for America’s sovereignty is on a par with his contempt for state’s rights and parental rights. All this from a man who helped kill his own mother in 2002, at a time when assisted suicide was a felony in California! On September 29, Newsom signed a bill, sponsored by a homosexual activist and state senator, Scott Wiener,... Read more →


Gas Prices Begin to Rise Again as Reserve Nears Bottom

Running on Empty: Aerial view of an offshore jack-up drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico. Shutterstock (The Center Square) – Gas prices are rising again just as the Strategic Petroleum Reserve hits a low point that many say is a problem. Gas prices hit record highs in the middle of June, surpassing a national average of $5 per gallon before starting a steady downward trend for several consecutive weeks. That streak ended last week when gas prices began to tick back up. The current national average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is $3.77, up from $3.68 a week ago. The Biden administration also touted the lower gas prices last Tuesday, but the very next day data showed they had begun to rise again. “Folks, gas prices are now back to levels they were at in early March,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “That means nearly all of the...

Washington Politics: Biden, Dems, and Media Succeed at Inciting Violence against So-Called “Republican Extremists”

Posted Friday, September 23, 2022 | By Tammy Bruce Many of us openly condemn President Joe Biden‘s rhetoric accusing conservatives of being “extremists” and a danger to the country as likely prompting and even encouraging unhinged people to act with violence on those “warnings.“ And now here we are. A 41-year-old North Dakota man has reportedly admitted to running over Cayler Ellingson, an 18-year-old a teenager, explaining that the victim was part of a “Republican extremist group.” According to a probable-cause affidavit provided to Fox News Digital, “Brandt stated that the pedestrian called some people and Brandt was afraid they were coming to get him. Brandt admitted to State Radio [a 911 dispatcher] that he hit the pedestrian and that the pedestrian was part of a Republican extremist group.” Cayler did call someone—his mother—to tell her he was being chased. She never heard from him after that. Making matters worse,... Read more →

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:

Gloucester City Council Candidate Jason Fanning Seeks Your Vote; "WE WILL WORK FOR YOU!"

Hello Gloucester City! I want to let you all get more familiar with me. Talking about one’s self is not always easy, but I feel it is important you are fully informed about your choices this election. I will try to keep this brief. While I consider being a Dad and little league coach my biggest responsibilities, I have professional successes that will be immensely useful to Gloucester City. My office walls are covered in framed achievements from throughout my life starting in high school. A high school who has a history of graduating doctors, astronauts, and a literal rocket scientist (He’s a good guy. I would know, he’s my brother). In 2004 I drove 1,000 miles from home to make a new home with $8,000 and everything I owned in a duffel bag. With that I built what is now the biggest company in my trade in South Jersey,...

Condo Association Endorses Jason Fanning for Gcity Council

Monmouth Condo Association Margate City, New Jersey Elected President to govern our association in 2018, Jason Fanning took on what could be described in one word “shambles”, and along with the Vice-President not only brought the association into compliance with regulations, he also oversaw improvements to the building that was beginning to become a bit of an eyesore. He simultaneously lowered annual costs by examining the budget and surgically removing portions that were wasteful or antiquated. As far as his quality of character, he is not only a pleasant and sociable neighbor, watching him engage with his son is nothing less than enjoyable. Jason Fanning approached us during our annual meeting for our endorsement for his campaign and we unanimously agreed. If you are looking to elect someone to your City Council who can guide a community into a new era in a budget friendly way, there is only one... Read more →

Tone Deaf Democrats From Eric Garcetti to Rep. Pramila Jayapal: Do They Even Know How To Be Normal?

By Marc Ang Guest Columnist While I have celebrated the success of “Squid Game” in my journalism as an example of commercial and artistic exceptional excellence, I wasn’t prepared for the liberal Democrats’ next move. For years, I had complained about Asians being shut out of entertainment in America but in 2018, the floodgates opened seemingly as major players who were actively excluding Asians, like Harvey Weinstein, were brought down by the #MeToo movement. CNBNews graphic file In typical shallow virtue signaling action, Mayor Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles recently declared September 17th as official “Squid Game Day”. Exactly why? My first reaction was confusion. Are we advocating for murder now? Squid Game details a sick twisted game, Saw-style, where participants are killed off one by one and put into spirit-testing situations where they would choose between their own life and a fellow participant’s, usually someone they had bonded with...

GUEST OPINION: BIDEN SOLD HIMSELF AS A UNITER

Barrington D. Martin II OUR America's National Director - Eastern Region In his inaugural address less than two years ago, he said “we can see each other not as adversaries but as neighbors. We can treat each other with dignity and respect. We can join forces, stop the shouting, and lower the temperature. For without unity, there is no peace, only bitterness and fury.” CNBNews graphic file Listen to him now. Division is at the cornerstone of his message, and that cornerstone sits on a foundation of bitterness and fury. Biden’s latest primetime speech on the “Battle for the Soul of the Nation” was startling. It contained some of the most divisive language Americans have ever heard from a president. He said Maga Republicans – a phrase he and his administration refuse to define – are a group that “threatens the very foundations of our Republic.” Keep in mind that... Read more →

Murphy Administration incorporates climate change into K-12 curriculum standards for NJ public schools

By Molly Byrne | Ballotpedia via The Center Square TRENTON, NJ (September 12, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--New Jersey became the first state to incorporate climate change into K-12 curriculum standards at the start of the 2022-2023 school year. Now that politicians are in the classroom the education of our children is being lost in the political rhetoric- CNBNews The State Board of Education first announced that they would adopt the new curriculum standards in June 2020, after the curriculum changes were initiated by New Jersey First Lady Tammy Murphy. The updated standards aim “to prepare students to understand how and why climate change happens and the impact it has on our local and global communities as well as to act in informed and sustainable ways.” The state board is responsible for updating the state’s curriculum standards every five years.
