    Don Cresitello is not the kind of guy to say "I hate to say I told you so."  In fact he takes great pleasure in doing so. And the Democratic former mayor of Morristown told you long ago that we need better coordination between local and federal authorities when it comes to dealing with potentially violent undocumented immigrants.That was proven against last week when an undocumented Mexican immigrant murdered three people in Missouri after being released from the Middlesex County jail in December to await trial on charges of domestic violence.That incident brought memories of a 2007 incident in which...

    The state of New Jersey has a new regulation in its Department of Education: a provision that prevents schools from informing parents of their child's preferred gender and gender pronouns. New Jersey became the eleventh state to have a specific gender provision in its state regulations, per NorthJersey.com. The local newspaper claimed that the rules are "intended to promote a safe and successful learning environment for [children]." The regulation, which was signed into law by former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, says that gender identity decisions reside with the student, not the parents, despite the fact that students are children...
  • Former NJ Gov. Chris Christie SLAMS Left-wing media for making McCain’s funeral about TRUMP

    Inappropriate: In case you haven’t noticed, the Left-wing ‘establishment’ media has a mission that will continue for the next several years: Take any opportunity, no matter how inappropriate, to bash POTUS Donald Trump. The latest example was the late Sen. John McCain’s funeral. Before the long-serving Republican was even laid to rest, the deranged media started attacking POTUS for anything and everything.

    While there were some overtly political statements targeting President Trump at the memorial service for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral on Saturday, much more of the service was focused on McCain’s life. And since the liberal media is the liberal media, they wanted to opine ad nauseam about how President Trump wasn’t invited. But during Sunday’s This Week, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scolded his colleagues for putting the focus on Trump instead of McCain. After letting ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and commentator Cokie Roberts prattle on about Trump’s absence from the service, fill-in host...

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) is reportedly investigating whether a fugitive Malaysian businessman paid a team of American lawyers, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) and an attorney who represents President Trump, from tens of millions of dollars in laundered funds. The DOJ is pursuing a criminal investigation into Jho Low, who has U.S. assets, people familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. The newspaper reported that the DOJ filed civil lawsuits in July 2016 and last year to recover assets from Low and others that were allegedly purchased with money embezzled from a Malaysian fund,...

    A Honduran woman pleaded guilty to being an "enforcer" in a slave labor ring that smuggled girls as young as 14 into the country and used threats of violence to force them to work in North Hudson bars. Xochil Nectalina Rosales Martinez, 29, also had been smuggled into this country and forced to work in one of the bars, but was later told she was in charge of running the Guttenberg apartment the ring used as a safehouse. She said she was told that if "any of these bitches get out of line, you should beat them." She said she...

    Chris Christie has kept a low public persona since leaving the Statehouse six months ago, but with Democrats making much noise in his home county of Morris, the former governor couldn’t stay silent. “You’ve got till Labor Day to fall in love with Jay Webber,” Christie said at a Republican “unity breakfast” Tuesday morning at the Zeris Inn in Mountain Lakes. Webber just survived a contentious primary to win the GOP nomination to run for Congress in District 11. His Democratic opponent, Mikie Sherrill, already has a campaign warchest of more than $4 million. Zeroing in on what many see...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Sunday that the media used hacked emails from the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) "unfairly." Christie said on ABC's "This Week," where he serves as a contributor, that the Justice Department's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for conspiring to hack Democratic servers during the 2016 election underscored the problems with how the media used those documents. "At the time you were playing this, the media was playing this at the time as if this was credible sourcing," Christie said. "And what [former interim DNC chairwoman] Donna [Brazile] said...

    When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former U.S. attorney, needed a good criminal defense lawyer -- whose millions in fees were paid by New Jersey taxpayers -- he hired Wray. Christie was never indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, but defense counsel for those who sought Christie's cellphone to demonstrate...

    The Supreme Court has struck down a federal law that banned sports betting in almost every state across the country, handing former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) a major win to bolster his legacy. New Jersey has been fighting since 2010 to make sports wagering legal at racetracks and casinos in the state, but had repeatedly been blocked by the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. The Court ruled 7-2 that PASPA’s provisions prohibiting states from authorizing and licensing a sports gabling scheme violates the anti-commandeering rule. In delivering the opinion of the court, Justice Samuel Alito...

    Former Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie sat down with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News This Week to discuss his former boss’s new book, A Higher Loyalty. When Christie served as U.S. attorney for New Jersey, former FBI Director James Comey was his boss at the U.S. Department of Justice. In the past, Christie has shed positive light on Comey’s leadership style and his integrity. According to Gov. Christie, at one point in their relationship Comey said to him, "Chris, its much harder to hate up close.” On that comment, Christie said “It's one of the smartest things anybody...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday warned that President Trump's "hyperbolic" style could have consequences if he testifies for special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. "One of the things that makes the president who he is is that he's a salesman, and salesmen at times tend to be hyperbolic," Christie said during a panel on ABC's "This Week." "That’s OK when you’re working on Congress. It is not OK when you’re sitting talking to federal agents because, 18 U.S.C. 1001 is false statements to federal agents, that's a crime, that can send you to jail." Christie also...

    For eight years, the Republican Party in New Jersey revolved around one person: Chris Christie. But the two-term governor is gone now, and the Jersey GOP is in poor shape. Almost irrelevant, really, with Democrat Phil Murphy in the governor's seat and his party firmly in control of the state Legislature. In fact, Republicans are left with their smallest number of state lawmakers in nearly four decades -- 41 out of 120 seats in the Legislature. In Washington, no Republican has been elected to the U.S. Senate since 1972, and Democrats are aiming at picking up a U.S. House seat...

Chris Christie (R-NJ) said “there could be” a legal issue with the alleged $130,000 President Donald Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen paid to porn star Stormy Daniels. When asked if there a legal issue with the payment Christie said, “There could be. He continued, “You’ve got to get to the bottom of the facts. You’ve got to get to the bottom of the facts.

    In an interview with the New York Times, former Trump confidant and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie lashed out at unnamed people in the White House for trying to discredit Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president and Trump's former campaign manager. "She’s gotten a bad rap at times," Christie said, "but I think that’s because of some of the really awful people inside the White House who have been trying to hurt her, as opposed to anything the press came up with on its own." As The Hill points out, "Conway is one of the last major figures from the...

    Former New Jersey Gov.

When Christie arrived at Terminal C in the airport with his New Jersey State Police detail and was taken to the entrance, which is located near the exit of the restricted area of the terminal, a Port Authority officer refused to let Christie use the special entrance, informing...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose popularity soared during his first term but then fell from grace, leaves office Tuesday. The Republican served a term-limited eight years in a majority blue state and spent much of that time in the national limelight as he built a reputation as a "tell-it-like-it-is" politician. But the Bridgegate scandal, a losing campaign for president and a day spent on a closed beach during a government shutdown left him with the lowest approval ratings for any governor in New Jersey history. In Christie's first year, a YouTube video of a press conference went viral when...

    On his last full day in office, Gov. Chris Christie cleared his desk of 150 pieces of legislation Monday. The state Assembly and Senate rushed to approve a long list of bills in the last month before the two-year session ended on Jan. 9. Christie had to decide before he left office on noon Tuesday whether he would sign the pile of legislation on his desk, or do nothing and let it expire — also known as a "pocket veto." Among the many bill signings, Christie endorsed regulating the use of drones, disbanding the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty...
