    Never short on ideas for things to tax, lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a tax on tap water. The proposal is being floated by State Sen. Bob Smith D-Middlesex, who is trying to say it's not actually a tax but a 'user fee'. "It is a user fee based on volume," Smith told Fox 5's Chasing New Jersey.

    Chris Christie has a book coming out next year and he doesn't plan on holding back. Hachette Books confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that the former New Jersey governor's "Let Me Finish: Trump, the Kushners, Bannon, New Jersey, and the Power of In-Your-Face Politics" is scheduled for next January 29. He will provide "frank appraisals" of such fellow Trump insiders as Steve Bannon, Corey Lewandowski and Jared Kushner, whose father, Charles Kushner, was sent to prison when Christie was a federal prosecutor.

    Former Texas U.S. Congressman Ron Paul, a three-time presidential candidate, has endorsed Murray Sabrin’s U.S. Senate candidacy. “I am pleased to endorse my good friend of 35 years Murray Sabrin for United States Senate,” said Paul. “Murray’s dedication to, and knowledge of, the principles of liberty will make him an effective advocate for freeing the people of New Jersey—and the nation–from excessive taxes, debt, and inflation, as well as ending the ongoing violations of our right to free speech, property, and privacy.” “Murray will also be an outspoken Senator for peaceful relations with other nations, and work to ensure that...
  • Why Democrats lose at least eleven Senate elections: Menendez

    In earlier posts I have made the flat assertion the Republicans, however undeserving they are, will win 11 Democrat Senate seats from the crashing Democrats. I stand by that prediction. One of the races that will be seen as an upset by a lot of people, will be the Democrats' loss of Bob Menendez's seat in New Jersey. That loss will bring the Democrats' loss total to eleven. He will lose to Republican challenger Bob Hugin. Those who only read yesterday’s headlines probably laughed at this confident prediction and probably didn’t even “bother” to read the reasoning behind it. That...

    Bob Hugin, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in New Jersey, launched a blistering attack on Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) Monday as a new poll shows the race is now a statistical tie. The Gravis Marketing Poll, provided exclusively to Breitbart News on Monday, showed that Menendez leads Hugin by just two points, 43 percent to 41 percent, which is within the poll’s 4.1 percent margin of error In 2012, Menendez easily defeated his Republican opponent by 18 points. But November’s election comes on the heels of a public corruption trial of Menendez which the Department of Justice dropped...

    The now-famous Trump baby blimp, which flew above protests across the UK as a defiant symbol against Donald Trump last week, could soon be on its way to the US. A GoFundMe page to get the inflatable baby Trump – complete with bright orange skin and a nappy – stateside has raised more than $10,000 in just three days. Activist Didier Jiminez-Castro set up the GoFundMe page to raise $4,500 to get the 20-foot blimp to Bedminster, New Jersey, where Mr Trump often golfs. He said he was blown away by the support and was now planning for it to...

    Police in New Jersey have officially crossed the [thin blue] line and literally attempted to confiscate guns from an army veteran without a warrant. But it didn’t go as planned, because Leonard Cottrell Jr. refused to comply with the orders of the cops. Eventually, all gun confiscation will be carried out by the police; who of “don’t make the laws, they just enforce them,” and Cottrell found this out the hard way. After serving two tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom overseas, Cottrell found himself at end of the state’s tyrannical oppression and gun elimination scheme.

    Immigrants accused of sexual assault, driving under the influence, burglary and domestic violence were among 37 arrested in a five-day "enforcement surge" in Middlesex County, immigration officials said Monday. The 37 people arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement included 16 who were released by the the Middlesex County Jail, which is among the New Jersey county jails located in a county that has a policy of limiting cooperation with federal immigration officials. "Middlesex County, which aspires to be a 'sanctuary county' by protecting criminal aliens, in the process assists criminals in undermining federal law, and creates a dangerous environment...

The 39-year-old woman and her 56-year-old lover — who sources believe was her mechanic — were discovered just before 9 p.m. Monday at a house in Newark. Sources say the wife and the mechanic were having sex in a car in the garage when they were both killed by the poison gas. The husband came home later to...

    "This president is the subject of a criminal investigation," Booker said. "Here you have a president that's making a whole lot of loyalty tests and other things from people." While Special Counsel Robert Mueller told Trump's lawyers in March he is under investigation, Trump is not considered a "criminal target," . . . Booker testified as a character witness on behalf of his colleague Sen. Bob Menendez (D., N.J.), when he was on trial for public corruption for accepting bribes from his long-time friend Dr. Salomon Melgen, in exchange for political favors.

    The bitter war of words between Democrats that could lead to another state government shutdown in New Jersey raged into the night during the year's longest day. The state's Democrat-controlled Legislature defied Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy by passing their own state budget Thursday night, despite the new governor's vow to veto it. And the body's top lawmaker accused Murphy of being dishonest and dictatorial. That came hours after closed-door negotiations broke down, with Murphy standing by his tax hike proposals and alleging his fellow Democrats are foolishly following in the footsteps of the state's previous -- unpopular -- governor, Republican...

    Guns have been made by individuals as long as there have been guns. In the United States, it has always been legal to own the means of production to make your own guns. It has always been legal to make your own. Hobbyists have been making firearms as long as the United States has existed. The national war on the Second Amendment started in the 1930's. Passed in 1934, the National Firearms Act required a license to make some guns for commercial sale. A federal tax stamp was required to own short barreled rifles and shotguns, and guns that can...
  • Gov. Murphy condemns Trenton arts festival shooting [tr]

    Gov. Murphy on Monday condemned a weekend shooting at an arts festival in Trenton that injured 22 people and left one of the suspected gunmen dead and he vowed to bring those responsible for “the lawlessness” to justice. Murphy praised law enforcement officers for their response when gunfire erupted early Sunday morning at the Art All Night event at the Roebling Wire Works warehouse. Authorities said Monday that several officers fired their weapons during the encounter with at least three suspects. It was unclear whether the wounded were struck by police or the gunmen. Authorities say the shooting began amid...

    Father’s Day fun turned into chaos at a New Jersey all-night arts festival when two gunman opened fire — injuring over a dozen people, including a 13-year-old boy, early Sunday. Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo Onofri said that 16 of the 20 people injured were treated for gunshot wounds, and that four, including the teen, were in critical condition. One of the suspects, a 33-year-old man, was killed and the other was in custody. The Art All Night festival in Trenton NJ., didn’t appear to have been targeted and the shooting was prompted by a fight at the event, Onofri said....

    The gun control bills that New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed this week won’t save lives. If anything, it will lead to more crime and death. The laws aim to keep firearms out of the wrong hands, expand background checks, and reduce magazine size. But at best, the new laws will harass otherwise law-abiding New Jerseyans and make it difficult for the poor to defend themselves.

    . By Bonnie Watson Coleman and William Castner Today is national Gun Violence Awareness Day. In New Jersey alone, roughly 1500 of our residents are shot each year and 270 killed by guns. This is a public health epidemic. And the infuriating part is Congress, with their collective heads in the sand, is completely indifferent to this crisis. In stark contrast to Washington, Gov. Phil Murphy in his first 100 days alone has already elevated gun violence to be a paramount issue as he promised to do when he ran for office. The Governor has launched a historic multi-state States...

    Six new gun-control laws were enacted Wednesday, including smaller ammunition magazine limits and new "red flag" laws designed to take guns from people deemed dangerous. Though New Jersey has among the nation’s most restrictive gun-control systems, most Democrats have been pushing for years to enact more, particularly in response to school shootings. Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald, D-Camden, recalled a Statehouse meeting he had in April 2013 with Connecticut parents whose children were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The cut in the maximum ammunition magazine, from 15 to 10 rounds, is one proposal that those parents emphasized. “We made...
