  • Partying hearty: Menendez's bikini shot blows up Dems' narrative on shutdown. Puerto Rican junket

    President Trump is staying put in snowy Washington while his government shutdown duel with Democrats continues, canceling every fancy trip out (that doesn't include a non-touristy one to the Texas border), including even a Christmas trip to his home in Florida. That's fitting for the times, and it suggests a leader looking for a resolution. But then there are...the Democrats. A whole slew of them packed off to Puerto Rico for a junket, getting hold of those hard-to-get Hamilton tickets (no shutout there); bunking in with 109 K Street lobbyists in $429-a-night hotel rooms; and, sure enough, partying hearty.  WashEx's Paul Bedard has the opening story. Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a...

    Thanks to a December 5 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, New Jersey's ban on gun magazines that hold more than 10 rounds took effect on December 10. By that date, all owners of heretofore legal "large capacity magazines" (LCMs) were required to surrender them to police, render them inoperable, modify them so they cannot hold more than 10 rounds, or sell them to authorized owners. Those who failed to do so are guilty of a fourth-degree felony, punishable by a maximum fine of $10,000 and up to 18 months in prison. How many of...

    BUENA, N.J. -- A New Jersey school district says its wrestling team will no longer compete in events officiated by a referee who told a wrestler to lose his dreadlocks or forfeit his bout. The announcement came during an emergency meeting held Wednesday with the Buena Regional school board and members of the community. The groups that assign referees have already said they wouldn't assign the ref until further notice. Buena Regional High School wrestler Andrew Johnson had his dreadlocks cut minutes before his match on Dec. 19. Johnson, who is black, had a cover over his hair, but referee...

    A court recently upheld New Jerseys ban on firearm magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but state officials have steadfastly refused to inform the citizens just how they intend to enforce that law. But the fact that it was upheld and coupled with news in a growing list of other states not to mention the noise from Washington DC proves that the Democrats intend to make 2019 the year of gun confiscation and ending the Second Amendment in every way without saying it openly. As to New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy signed the ban on extended magazines in...

    A federal appeals court upheld New Jerseys magazine-capacity-limit laws, arguing 2-1 that three 10-round magazines are just as good as two 15-rounders. They said that a magazine-capacity limit does not present a burden to self-defense. New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal favored the decision to limit gun owners to 10-round magazines. (Photo: Grewal) Previously New Jersey residents had a magazine-capacity limit of 15 rounds, due to a law passed in 1990. The new law restricts gun owners to 10 rounds and they must modify, destroy or register any magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds. The law makes an...

    This is before and this is after. Before and after, Cory Booker is saying on Snapchat. Hes just met a young fan with an Afro and is drawing the contrast to his own shiny bald head. Its a routine he will repeat again later in the day and as he crisscrosses the country before the midterms. The New Jersey senator cant say no to a selfie. If you are standing around looking idle, hell probably ask you to take one and upload the photo to his social media accounts for his millions of followers. Social media are Bookers bread and...

    State lawmakers investigation into Gov. Phil Murphys administration over its handling of a staffers sexual assault allegation has ratcheted up distrust between the governor and his fellow Democrats who control the New Jersey Legislature, NJ Advance Media has learned. The result? Big picture, the states top leaders havent met privately for nearly two months. Its no better on the daily transactional level. For example, Murphys office yanked complimentary football tickets away from the co-chairwoman of the legislative committee investigating the allegations, sources say.

    Jersey City cops received a reminder this week that pot is not legal yet. In a memo sent Monday by Deputy Police Chief Mark Miller, all police personnel were told they must arrest anyone they suspect of possessing marijuana, even small amounts. The warning comes five months after Mayor Steve Fulop announced on Twitter that his administration began deprioritizing marijuana arrests at the end of 2017, and as state lawmakers are on the cusp of legalizing recreational weed. It's not clear what led Miller to issue the memo, but sources with knowledge of the decision said it came after an...

    Undocumented immigrants are already driving on New Jersey's roads, so why not give them a chance to get a driver's license so they can insure and register their vehicles? That's the viewpoint of a handful of state legislators who on Tuesday announced they have introduced a bill that would let undocumented immigrants apply for a license. They argue it'll make the state's roadways safer for everybody and support the Garden State economy. "We can't ignore the reality that undocumented immigrants are on the roads now, going to work, driving their children to school and doing the routine activities that all...

    One of the Donald Trumps top political allies in New Jersey says that Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick (R-Westfield) could face a primary challenge if he doesnt stop bashing Trump. Nutley Commissioner Steve Rogers says that when Republicans like Bramnick bash Trump, they hurt the GOP brand. Our party must return to its conservative roots-roots that are embedded in the Constitution, Rogers told the New Jersey Globe. I have been all over New Jersey and I find a hunger and thirst among Republicans as well as conservative Democrats and independents for a return to the values we embraced years ago.

    WASHINGTON U.S. Sen. Cory Booker just visited 24 -- count 'em, 24 -- states stumping for Democrats in the midterm elections. He contributed $686,000 to House and Senate candidates across the nation. And along the way, New Jersey's dynamic Democrat stopped in all those early presidential primary states, plus a few that look to be big battlegrounds. A dry run for a potential 2020 bid? Even Booker wouldn't quarrel with that. "I will consider running for president," Booker told NJ Advance Media. "That's something that I will do. There's people in New Jersey who are talking to me about...
