Media Fails The Public Once Again

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor The Supreme Court ends its 2021-2022 term today. It also ends a particularly embarrassing time for the media. On June 24, the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to overturn Roe v. Wade; it also ruled 6-3 to uphold the Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Astonishingly, many media outlets got the story wrong. The following media outlets incorrectly reported that the decision to overturn Roe was 6-3: Washington Post USA Today Yahoo Fox News New York Post New York Daily News Daily Caller Washington Free Beacon Forbes Fortune The Hill New York Magazine...

By Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Contributor image courtesy of https://www.istockphoto.com/ (CNBNews)(July 1, 2022)--The past few weeks have been very active, if not confusing, concerning what has been in the news.

The Political Elite Is Going After Trump's Jugular Vein

William E. Cleary Sr. | CNBNewsnet WASHINGTON, DC (June 9, 2022)--For the entire four-year term of Trump's presidency, the Democrats and some Republicans never stopped slandering him or his family. Their numerous impeachments all failed. Although Trump has been out of office for 18 plus months the Political Elite are not through with him.

NRA-ILA OPINION: Gun Control is About Stripping Rights NOT Stopping Crime

Economics has a concept called “revealed preference.” The gist is that a person’s observed actions reveal more about their preferences than what a person might profess to prefer. As applied to anti-gun politicians, despite all the noise they might make about stopping the criminal misuse of guns, their actions reveal that their policies are designed to attack the rights of law-abiding Americans. Consider, anti-gun politicians ceaselessly propose new gun control laws they claim will stop criminal actors from misusing firearms. However, many of these same policymakers are indifferent to the woeful federal prosecution rates of those who misuse or try... Read more →

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The Healing Touch of Flowers

What has happened to the committee who decorates our city with flowers in the spring? Beautiful urns were purchased a few years back and they sit empty. There used to be beautiful hanging baskets on Monmouth St but I don’t see them any longer. I see other small communities, i.e. Westville with their urns/vessels decorated with beautiful spring flowers, but not Gloucester City. All I see is trash cans, sometimes empty, sometimes filled with trash, otherwise the trash is on the sidewalk or in the gutters. If I recall, flowers make us smile, make us happy, cheer us up when...

GUEST OPINION: "Europe Is Getting Tough on Big Tech. When Will the US Do the Same?"

By Jason Boyce In March, the European Union (EU) took a significant step toward reining in Big Tech offenders with the Digital Markets Act. Targeting the gatekeepers of today’s digital economy, the law is a historic piece of legislation and is a critical next step in the broader fight to level the playing field. However, this watershed moment has failed to reach the US, which continues to fall short in protecting consumers and innovative small businesses from predatory tech companies. Congress must stop playing catch up with Europe and take a leadership role to protect its constituents. Courage and cooperation... Read more →

Statement: The KAIROS Company for Dr. James Dobson May 10, 2022 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR "Recently, the Left has become increasingly deranged over the potential of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: Help for Unemployment Claims

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews TRENTON, NJ (April 27, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--In New Jersey the Democrats and Republicans are actually working together on the unemployment problem.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Freedom & Equality for All, Starting in South Jersey 

Do you vote for people who refrain from rocking the boat? Does a politician who maintains the status quo appeal to you? Or would you prefer to elect someone with strong convictions and the drive to fight for them? If your answer is “yes”, New Jersey District 2 Congressional candidate Sean Pignatelli ( https://pignatelliforcongress.com ) deserves your vote.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Fight Back Against Big Tech

A few weeks ago I sent around an email advocating for our parents and condemning the NJEA and other radical agenda-driven groups for actively encouraging our children to question their gender. The idea that the LGBTQ+ political radicals are sexualizing our education system and preying on the minds of grade schoolers is outrageous and unacceptable.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The Woke Left Trying To Corrupt And Confuse Your Children

Have you seen the latest attempt by the Woke Left to corrupt and confuse your children? During a Disney staff meeting, executive producer for Disney Television Animation Latoya Raveneau touted Disney’s efforts to feature LGBTQ storylines. She revealed that she was just “adding queerness” wherever she could, stating that “No one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me.” This shows that Disney is complicit with the transgender cult being forced on school children by our government in Trenton and in the White House.

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Jon Stewart's remarks about racism on his Apple TV + show: It seems everything about Jon Stewart is phony.

Letters to the Editor: The Left is Lying to You

Dear Fellow Patriot, A slew of Western businesses have exited the Russian economy since the invasion of Ukraine, citing "humanitarian reasons" yet continue to remain silent about the genocide happening in China.

Let one Church unite Ukraine, Russia By Father Joseph D. Wallace - March 3, 2022 The world is shocked and dismayed over the wonton and unprovoked military incursion by Russia into the sovereign and independent country of Ukraine.

Paper, cardboard, and plastic bottles litter the gutters! 75% of all properties on the west side of Gloucester are rentals and are owned by out-of-town landlords. It’s a “Big Business”!

OPINION: HOW DO CIVIL WARS HAPPEN?

By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation was about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not... Read more →

Letter to the Editor: Being Censored by Big Tech

DES MOINES — Earlier this week, the Grassley Works campaign shared a Fox News article on Facebook regarding new allegations uncovered by the Durham investigation detailing more corruption by the 2016 Clinton campaign for president.

Opinion: Donohue on The Prayer Scare And Beyond

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on critical reactions to prayer and religious conversations: A half century ago, those who were not religious tended not to be anti-religious, so they had no impact on the faithful.

GUEST OPINION: Biden’s “black female”requirement is crass but may actually help Republicans

By Marc Ang If our qualifications for moving up in the world are reduced to our body parts and skin pigmentation, what a sad world that looks like. None of us choose what we end up with the generic lottery but great societies like America allow us to transcend all that to grow, succeed and accomplish. That was the America of the past.
