    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, NJ.com 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).

    Washington Examiner ^ | 9/17/2020 | Tiana Lowe
    The Department of Education has informed Princeton University that it is under investigation following the school president's declaration that racism was "embedded" in the institution. President Christopher Eisgruber published an open letter earlier this month claiming that "racism and the damage it does to people of color persist at Princeton" and that "racist assumptions" are "embedded in structures of the University itself." According to a letter the Department of Education sent to Princeton that was obtained by the Washington Examiner, such an admission from Eisgruber raises concerns that Princeton has been receiving tens of millions of dollars of federal funds...
  • Jewish GOP candidate calls Pelosi mailer anti-Semitic ‘dog whistle’

    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 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.

    Election officials in Sussex County, New Jersey discovered more than 1,600 uncounted ballots from the July 7th primary election. According to Board of Elections Administrator Marge McCabe, the ballots were discovered in a "mislabeled" box in a "secure area," the New Jersey Harold reported.

    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...

    Quick — you’re being targeted by the cancel culture mob. Your inbox is blowing up. Your Twitter mentions are filled with hate. There’s a petition demanding your termination. What do you do? According to three professors who’ve all had this happen to them recently — they all agree on one thing — don’t cave. “The pressure to apologize in an effort to appease one’s tormentors can be tremendous, but do not give into the pressure. If you feel you did no wrong, do not apologize,” said Princeton University classics Professor Joshua Katz. “I have watched people abase themselves before the...

    Joyce’s Tavern in Staten Island had never been visited by the State Liquor Authority before the pandemic. But they "selfishly" decided to hold a charity event for the Tunnel2Towers organization, which was created to honor the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller who died saving others on September 11, 2001. New York City Councilman Joe Borelli, who held a book signing at the tavern last week, explained in an animated Twitter thread on Sunday how the city raided the restaurant without warning. He had an inkling as to why the city targeted this specific restaurant. On Thurs, They let me have...

    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...

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. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala D. Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) — voted "no."

    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...

    New York beachgoers were greeted with what appears to be a grim anti-Cuomo banner in the sky Saturday. “THE GOV KILLED NANA,” read the banner carried on a propeller plane that flew across New York City and Long Island beaches, according to accounts on social media. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been widely criticized for his handling of the state-regulated nursing homes, where at least 6,447 New Yorkers died during the health crisis. One Rockaway beachgoer told The Post the plane flew by around 4 p.m. as observers stopped to take pictures and applauded the message. “The people were going crazy,”...
