First Ebola-Treating Health Care Worker Stopped By New NY/NJ Quarantine Now Reports Fever

Governors Christie & Cuomo Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Score another one for states’ rights. New York and New Jersey are stepping up and doing what President Obama and his administration refuse to do – protect their citizens. But fortunately, she’s in quarantine, thanks to Governors Christie and Cuomo. However, a doctor who came through prior to the quarantine went into effect went on from NY to California. NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A health care worker who was quarantined at Newark Liberty International Airport after returning from treating Ebola patients in West Africa developed a fever and was being evaluated Friday night.

Shaneen Allen vs. Ray Rice – You Be The Judge

Shaneen Allen is not a new name on Political Realities. I have written twice about her plight after she accidentally went afoul of New Jersey’s antiquated gun laws. You can read those posts here and here. Suffice it to say, this young mother of two young boys from Philadelphia never envisioned being thrown in jail for bringing a gun legally purchased in Pennsylvania into New Jersey. As much as that may be, that is what she is facing. It seems the Garden State doesn’t abide by anyone bringing a gun into their state that isn’t approved and they are throwing […]

‘Peaceful’ Islamic Religion Strikes Again, New Jersey Teen Murdered by ‘Devout’ Muslim

The Religion Of Peace: “Devout Muslim” murdered Livingston teen Brendan Tevlin for Allah Jihad came to West Orange, NJ. The man accused of gunning down a Livingston teenager in his car earlier this summer told investigators the murder was an act of retribution for U.S. military action against Muslims in the Middle East. According to court documents filed Wednesday in Washington state, where he is accused of killing three other men, Ali Muhammad Brown said he considered it his mission to murder 19-year-old Brendan Tevlin as an act of “vengeance” for innocent lives lost in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria and Iran.

Gas prices are falling, Do we question the timing…?

If there wasn’t an election in 2 months I might be happy about falling gasoline prices Gas prices are falling. I question the timing. Gasoline prices in New Jersey have dropped this summer and as of today, three stations in Union and Middlesex counties were charging as low as $2.98 for a gallon of unleaded. That marked the first time since February that a station in the state sold gas for less than $3 a gallon, highlighting what oil analysts say is a trend that should continue into Labor Day and beyond. Yup, “beyond,” to Election Day. The $2.99 gas […]

Obama Dumping Illegal Alien Children, Tells Governors Nothing

Obama just dumped 1504 illegal alien kids in NJ, and won’t tell us where they are The tip of the ICEberg…   New Jersey’s new motto on the Statue of, ahem, Liberty: “Give us your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for Free Stuff.” Did I say “give?” I meant dump. Because we didn’t ask for 1504 new mouths to feed. Obama just dropped ‘em off, behind our backs. More than 1,500 unaccompanied children who entered the U.S. illegally have been placed with sponsors in New Jersey this year, federal officials announced Thursday. New statistics released by the Department […]

Single Mom of 2, Working Two Jobs Faces Prison for being Honest

Meet the honest 27 year old single mom from PA who faces 3 years in a New Jersey prison Shaneen Allen is no dangerous criminal. She’s a single mom working 2 jobs who’s already been robbed twice while traveling alone at night in Philadelphia. Her family suggested that she carry a gun for protection. She took a gun safety course, applied for and was granted a concealed carry permit, and bought a gun. Then she made the mistake of driving into New Jersey. Now she’s going to prison. Allen said that she didn’t know her permit didn’t apply to New […]

Rich Fleeing High Tax New Jersey

That those with money leave places that take said money from them should be obvious, and need no explanation, but there are democrats in the world.  So, in my own sarcastic and demeaning way, I seek to educate the willfully ignorant.  Wyblog helps considerably… Chris Christie’s patented “Jersey Comeback” may need to be rebranded as a plea — “Come Back, please, and bring your money with you.” Because despite his attempts to reduce our state’s tax burden, the exodus of our wealthy residents continues to escalate. New Jersey’s high taxes may be costing the state billions of dollars a year […]

BridgeGate Rocks the Political World!

Bridgegate threatens the Chris Christie presidency. The political world was shaken to its foundations this past week when the presumptive 2016 Republican nominee Chris Christie  (shown here second from left with some aides) Governor Christie (second from left) with aides was accused of closing lanes at the George Washington bridge and causing massive traffic jams just to punish a political adversary. With my responsibility as a member of the MSM to investigate any story that would embarrass a Republican (even a RINO such as Christie) always on my mind I asked the governor for an interview which he was gracious […]

New Jersey’s New Gun Laws Result in Higher Murder Rate

According to Wyblog, New Jersey  reacted to the Sandy Hook massacre by passing some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.  And, like other states or cities that have passed strict gun laws, the murder rate went up… In 2013 NJ enacted the stricted gun laws in the nation, and the murder rate soared Last year our knee-jerk liberal fascists reacted predictably to the Newtown, CT school shooting by enacting some of the strictest gun control legislation in the nation. Also last year the murder rate in our fine state soared to a seven-year high. Coincidence? I mean […]

Two Christians Were Beheaded by Muslim: National Media Silent

If seems that  more and more good people  are being set upon by all sides.   Christians are being persecuted in schools, in universities, in hospitals, and via ObamaCare.  Now, add to the fray the Muslims, for  two Christians were beheaded by a Muslim in New Jersey.  And, as usual, the MSM is taking a pass on covering it.  The Western Center for Journalism has the video… Then again, the Book tells us that this sort of thing is going to happen.  But the MSM is performing its function and not reporting on it.  However, if a Tea Party member were […]

Union Thug Update: IBEW Blocked Transformers from Being Delivered to NJ

When they claim to be trying to help people recovering from a natural disaster, why did the IBEW keep important supplies, like  electrical transformers, from entering New Jersey?  Wyblog has the story… For the second time since Huricane Sandy their unionista thugs put solidarity above customer service. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, it seems to be pretty clear that residents of New York City and the surrounding areas could use all the help they can get. However, a Davisburg man said some people in the area are more interested in “protecting their turf” than in distributing those supplies to the masses. Mike […]

Regionalism (Agenda 21) and Governor Chris Christie

Regionalism is the concept that the suburbs, through their taxes, should support the costs of their nearby city core. It comes straight out of the UN Agenda 21 where they use terms like “smart growth” and “sustainable development” or “sustainable living”. Regionalism is a favorite of “Community Organizers” like you know who. So, why is Governor Chris Christie of New Jersy, a darling of many conservatives and a keynote speaker at this year’s Republican National Convention supporting regionalism in his state? We will get to that in a moment. First, let’s review what “regionalism” is all about. I first posted […]

Taxes for Online Purchases Coming to a State Near You?

Apparently, some governors are seeing dollar signs with online purchases.  The bigger problem?  The GOP seems to be on board.  Big Government has more… Small companies who want to sell their products online are in real trouble. Some Republican governors, eager to enrich their thinning state coffers, are endorsing a tax that would be imposed on products sold online.According to the National Conference of State Legislatures Strapped, states could reap as much as $23 billion in new annual revenue. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie recently agreed to allow Amazon to collect sales taxes on his state’s online purchases if they located […]

High Cigarette Taxes Fail to Meet Expected Revenue Targets: Anyone Surprised?

taxes

Apparently, raising taxes on tobacco products is falling out of favor with state governments… According to Patrick Gleason, director of state affairs for the conservative Americans for Tax Reform, tobacco has not been the revenue boon states that have increased cigarette taxes had hoped. “The lack of interest in raising tobacco taxes this year can be attributed to the fact that tobacco taxes have indisputably proven to be a dubious and declining source of revenue,” Gleason told TheDC. “From 2003-2007, 16 of 59 tobacco tax hikes fell short of revenue projections.” Here in Washington D.C., for example, the city’s 2009 […]

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Unions Call Gov. Christie "Hitler"

To introduce the latest “Great Moment in Civil Discourse,” I think a history lesson is in order. From the inception of the Tea Parties, Lyndon LaRouche supporters started showing up with signs like this… The MSM went bonkers for this, citing that the Tea Parties were RAAAAACIST! They also neglected to mention that Larouche is a DEMOCRAT.  But, as always, the MSM can’t let the truth get in the way of the narrative, can they? Of course, being the propaganda tools that they are, they neglected to report in signs like this… In fact, they denied their very existence!   […]
