    Tommy DeVito, one of the smooth harmonizing founding members of legendary doo-wop group The Four Seasons, has died from complications of the coronavirus. He was 92. Actor Alfred Nittoli (“Casino”) confirmed the baritone vocalist and lead guitarist’s passing Tuesday on Facebook. “My dear friend Tommy passed away in Las Vegas at 9:45 last night,” Nittoli wrote, spurring dozens of emotional condolences. “With deep regret I am writing this sitting in his living room. I was informed by his daughter Darcel there will be a service in New Jersey.”

    Police are on the hunt for at least two gunmen who fired a barrage of shots on the Camden, New Jersey, home of two police officers and their newborn – with six of the bullets penetrating the structure in the “targeted” attack, according to reports. The couple and their 10-day-old baby escaped injury after the assailants opened fire on their Clinton Street home about 11:45 p.m. Tuesday, reported. Six of the seven bullets that struck the home made it inside – two through the front door, Camden Police Chief Joseph Wysocki said during a press conference Thursday night, the...

Joe Kaufman, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, is Chairman of the Joe Kaufman Security Initiative and the 2014, 2016 and 2018 Republican Nominee for U.S. House of Representatives (Florida-CD23). As Progressives continue to make the vilification of Israel a core issue for the Democratic Party, members of Congress continue to line up to embrace the hate. On Tuesday, September 15th, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) will be sponsoring an online virtual advocacy event (‘Palestine Advocacy Days’) featuring at least five US Representatives.

  • Jewish GOP candidate calls Pelosi mailer anti-Semitic ‘dog whistle’

    NJ Globe ^ | 9/16/20
    Direct mail coming from Nancy Pelosi’s House Majority PAC appears to accentuate but not modify the size of a Jewish Republican congressional candidate’s nose and depicts the candidate with loads of hundred dollar bills. One of the three mailers show a digitally-altered David Richter with a suit jacket lined with money, with additional cash in his pockets and in a cardboard box behind him. The others portray a similar tone. “The photo-shopped caricatures of me portrayed in these mailers, always surrounded by piles of cash, is a well-known dog whistle to those who want to further divide our country in...

    New Jersey Republicans sure got a surprise when they checked their mail recently. When they opened up their envelopes containing their mail-in ballots for the election on July 7th, they were shocked to see what was inside. Just like Oregon, it seems like Democrats are trying to rig the elections there as well. It's like they just took a play out of their playbook. They received ballots that were for Democrats and not Republicans. In other words, they weren't able to vote on them because they're not voting Democrat.

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday announced a new deal with fellow Democrats to hike taxes on the state's wealthiest individuals and couple that with a one-time tax rebate for lower-income households. Under the plan, the state's gross income tax rate on individuals earning between $1 million and $5 million would increase from 8.97% to 10.75%. Wages over $5 million are already taxed at the top marginal rate of 10.75%. Someone earning $4 million would pay roughly $71,200 more in taxes each year, while someone making $1 million would see an increase of about $17,800 per year. Murphy's administration...

    President Trump's campaign called on a federal judge to stop the state of New Jersey's plans to count mail-in votes prior to Election Day, pending the results of a lawsuit the campaign filed in August. In a court filing in the lawsuit against New Jersey's secretary of state, the campaign, the Republican National Committee and the New Jersey GOP also sought blockage of New Jersey's plan to count ballots without postmarks that are received up to two days after Election Day. "Congress did not intend voting to continue after Election Day," the filing said, according to the New Jersey Globe.

    An unidentified flying object in the skies of New Jersey Monday had residents believing aliens were about to beam down to the Garden State until it was actually identified — as a Goodyear Blimp. Twitter video of the “New Jersey UFO sighting” racked up more than 555,000 views. But naysayers were quick to debunk the extraterrestrial sighting — noting that it was nothing more than the Goodyear Blimp flying overhead near MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, where the New York Giants lost 26-16 to the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night in the season opener.

    And what a very neat number it is too. Don't worry folks. This is the kind of thing that almost never happens, but it keeps happening every week. I'm sure it won't happen when there's a national election at stake and the party that habitually commits voter fraud is desperate to take the White House by any means from burning down cities to engaging in ballot harvesting. Nothing to worry about or see here. Officials have counted more than 1,600 ballots from New Jersey's July primary that were found last week in a “mislabeled” bin. The 1,666 ballots from Sussex...

    More than a century before hashtags and messaging apps, the era of political bosses and patronage made New Jersey the punch line of jokes about voter fraud. Provincial anecdotes in Democrat county strongholds about the dead still voting and voting early and often have long come to epitomize the machine politics of a dark blue state where Democrat voters outnumber Republicans two to one and control 15 of 21 counties. Standalone electronic voting booths have been used in the state for decades. Unconnected to the internet, they are paperless and store votes until the polls close, after which the results...

    A former New Jersey man claims he was sexually assaulted by celebrity Judge Andrew Napolitano in exchange for a lenient sentence in an arson case in the 1980s, according to a bombshell lawsuit filed Friday. The alleged victim, Charles Corbishley, also alleges the judge tried to block him from filing the suit in Manhattan federal court by lodging false police reports against him, the suit states. In a statement, Fox News, where Napolitano works as senior judicial analyst, said the judge will fight the allegations in court. “Judge Napolitano has assured us in the strongest possible terms that these allegations...

    A bipartisan coalition of members of Congress sent a letter to NBA Commissioner Adam Silver on Wednesday “to express our deep concern” over the NBA’s statements surrounding controversy over a tweet last week by Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, who expressed support for pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong. “It is outrageous that the Chinese Communist Party is using its economic power to suppress the speech of American inside the United States. It is also outrageous that the NBA has caved to Chinese government demands for contrition,” the letter reads. It was co-signed by eight members of Congress, including Republican...

    All but three Senate Democrats now openly support infanticide of babies who manage to be born alive despite an attempted abortion.  A total of 60 votes were needed to overcome a promised filibuster, and the measure gained only 53 votes.  But the field of presidential contenders from the Senate are now all on the record.  As the Washington Post notes: All of the announced 2020 Democratic presidential candidates — Sens.

    Local officials in New Jersey are criticizing the state’s turnpike authority for allegedly taking down American flags that were hung along overpasses in the wake of the attacks on Sept. 11 to honor veterans and those who died defending the country, according to authorities and reports. Michael Slininger, president of the police union representing Robbinsville Township, near Trenton, said the group had just paid to replace the more than 12 flags that had been either “missing or tattered” from the overpasses along the New Jersey Turnpike and Interstate 195 – which they had done “to continue the tradition of honoring...

    School leaders in New Jersey and elsewhere are dealing with a flood of leave requests from teachers, and it’s creating a cascading effect that’s forcing some schools to shift to full time virtual instruction. School District of the Chathams Superintendent Mike LaSusa told the district plans to hold in-person classes but was forced to move the start date back a week because of teacher leave requests. “We are not in a place right now where we have to close, but if we’re faced with a continuing increase in the number of leave inquiries and potential leaves we could be...
