McCann skips GOP primaries but works for Democrats

Every Republican with a pulse knows what happens in a primary.  Two or more candidates duke it out -- sometimes it gets downright nasty -- but after the votes are counted and the dust clears, all sides get together behind the winner of the Republican primary and go and beat up the Democrat and win the election in November. 

That's how it was in 2016, when a lot of good conservatives worked for presidential candidates like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Chris Christie, among others.  They fought for their candidates and against Donald Trump, but then got behind Donald Trump once he became the Republican nominee at the convention. 

Some Republicans, like Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno, said that they couldn't support Donald Trump for President.  But at least they didn't support the Democrat ticket led by Hillary Clinton.   Later, Guadagno would be forgiven by many Republicans, including Mayor Carlos Rendo, who agreed to serve on her ticket in last year's gubernatorial race.

A very few Republicans, like candidate John McCann, continued to serve their Democrat paymasters (in McCann's case, Bergen Sheriff Michael Saudino) while Saudino was running for re-election as a Democrat on Hillary Clinton's ticket.  In our view, this is unconscionable.  Any Republican with a spine and worthy of the name should have campaigned against Michael Saudino in 2016.  He shouldn't have been taking a check from him.

But maybe John McCann doesn't understand the primary process too well because he doesn't vote in Republican primaries too often.  If his voting record is correct, McCann has showed up for one Republican primary in the last decade.  That's pretty darn lame.

Many see McCann as a Democrat straw man.  The Bergen Record has identified McCann as the "right hand man" to Democrat Sheriff Michael Saudino.  It was Saudino's feud with the Republican County Executive that undermined and ultimately lost Republicans control of Bergen County.  The coup de grace came when Saudino, a one-time Republican, joined Hillary Clinton and Josh Gottheimer on a ticket that crushed Republicans in Bergen County.  McCann remained Saudino's consigliore through all of this and ran for Congress (as a Republican) with Saudino's blessing and while still on the Democrat's payroll.

Sheriff Saudino has formally endorsed fellow Democrat Josh Gottheimer for re-election this year.  All this meddling in the Republican primary has the Democrats resembling the Russians. 

Have a good weekend.

McCann doesn't do primaries but works for Democrats

Every Republican with a pulse knows what happens in a primary.  Two or more candidates duke it out -- sometimes it gets downright nasty -- but after the votes are counted and the dust clears, all sides get together behind the winner of the Republican primary and go and beat up the Democrat and win the election in November. 

That's how it was in 2016, when a lot of good conservatives worked for presidential candidates like Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Chris Christie, among others.  They fought for their candidates and against Donald Trump, but then got behind Donald Trump once he became the Republican nominee at the convention.

But maybe John McCann doesn't understand the primary process too well because he doesn't vote in Republican primaries too often.  If his voting record is correct, McCann has showed up for one Republican primary in the last decade.  That's pretty darn lame.

For so many reasons, John McCann is a non-starter.  And this being America, we thought that we were free to express our opinion under the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution.  Apparently, there are those who believe these rights should be suppressed by political power.  To this end, the first threats have arrived, from elected officials and those who are employed by elected officials.  We will be collecting them, so please, feel free to keep sending them.

Of course, those who wish to suppress us could send along their thoughts and ideas and join in the discussion that is democracy.  We would be happy to publish their thoughts and ideas if, indeed, they have any thoughts and ideas.

Have a good weekend.

Did John McCann lie about his role in ClintonCare?

For months we've been hearing congressional candidate John McCann brag about stopping Hillary Care from happening in the 1990's.  The story goes that as a college intern (or "fellow" as he puts it) John McCann claims to have been responsible for ending Hillary Care... yep, all by himself.  McCann claims to have come up with a graph.  That's right.  A graph.  

First, a graph is just a prop -- a visual aid that a speaker makes come alive.  

McCann has been behaving like a self-important, overblown junior academic.  By pointing to himself, taking credit, he is ignoring all the hard work of all those Senators and Congressman and Rush Limbaugh and talk radio and the medical professionals and all those thousands of conservative activists and all the reams of studies and research and opinion pieces and thousands of graphs of all those conservative and libertarian think tanks -- not to mention the Republican legal staffs of both the House and the Senate.  Nope, not them... it was "me" says McCann. 

Second, it wasn't his graph.  The Senator he was interning for -- liberal Republican Arlen Specter -- gave credit to the graph's creator in a speech on the floor of the Senate.  Her name was mentioned in a Washington Post article.  

C-Span caught the whole thing... and now it is part of history. 

The web link below from C-Span is an 11-hour video of the U.S. Senate Floor on January 27, 1994.

https://www.c-span.org/video/?54084-1/senate-session 

At two hours and thirty minutes (2:30) into it, Senator Specter speaks on the issue and appears with his huge chart.  About six minutes into his speech, he explains that staffer Sharon Helfant was responsible for creating it.  He goes on to explain how the Washington Posthad a story a day earlier mentioning Helfant and her role in developing the chart.  

Yep, C-Span caught the whole thing... and now it is part of history.  That history doesn't jive with the way congressional candidate John McCann has been bragging.

Tea Party leaders pushing Democrat agenda in Sussex

There is a reason why Hillary Clinton didn't address the Republican National Convention last summer.  If you want to beat somebody and their ideas you don't hold hands and sing kumbaya. 

 

The two nitwits who invited liberal Democrat Jennifer Hamilton to promote her candidacy with the Skylands Tea Party group don't understand that.  Hamilton, a decidedly left-of-center Democrat lawyer, is running with two other self-proclaimed "progressives" for the New Jersey Legislature against conservative Republicans Steve Oroho, Parker Space, and Hal Wirths.  She addressed the Tea Party group on Wednesday evening.

 

One of the nitwits who invited her, New York City lawyer Doug Amedeo, spends so much time trying to placate his far-left, Obama-loving law partner, that's he's become conditioned to kissing liberal butt.  How come ALL the campaign donations coming out of his law practice go to left wing Democrats?  Most law firms split it up a little.

 

Photo Credit: New Jersey HeraldThe other nitwit is Bill Hayden (now that he's trying to clean up his dirtbag image, he wants to be known as William Jefferson Hayden).  Hayden actually allowed himself to be talked into running in the GOP primary to "soften up" conservative Republican Senator Steve Oroho so that liberal Democrat Jennifer Hamilton has the best chance to win.

 

The person who convinced Hayden was none other than Freeholder George Graham, who has flip-flopped back and forth between Democrat and Republican no less than FIVE times.  Graham is looking to benefit from the money being thrown into Northwest New Jersey by Democrat candidate for Governor Phil Murphy.  Murphy, a rich liberal Wall Streeter (Goldman Sachs), former DNC Finance Chairman, and Obama ambassador, is the favorite to be New Jersey's next Governor.  That will mean jobs and appointments to all loyal Democrats.

 

Graham ally Dan Perez -- who advised and provided legal advice to both Freeholder Graham and Gail Phoebus -- announced last week that he had switched back to Democrat and is running on a far-left platform with fellow liberal Democrat Jennifer Hamilton and her two running mates for the Legislature. Perez, who was appointed by Graham to a taxpayer-paid patronage position on the SCMUA board, is running for Freeholder in Sussex County. 

 

Word has it that if Perez is successful, Graham and one other nominal Republican intend to flip to Democrat to swing the board left and to the Democrats.  If this happens, the property tax increases Sussex County has suffered since George Graham came to the Freeholder Board will seem like nothing compared to what awaits taxpayers under a Democrat Graham-Perez dominated board. 

 

And at the Tea Party meeting on Wednesday night, Gail Phoebus indicated that she too would flip to Democrat and suggested that she would challenge Republicans Parker Space and Hal Wirths in the 2019 Assembly race.  The great Sussex County migration of former Democrats back to the party they came from is on.

 

At Wednesday night's meeting, liberal Democrat Senate candidate Jennifer Hamilton opened up her discussion with an illusion to a book by Hillary Clinton and told her audience that they had much in common.  Then she used some Obama phraseology about "coming together."  Of course, the platform she is running on contains charming phrases like this one:

 

"Governor Christie sold out to right-wing special interests in order to further his own political ambitions. He has attacked women’s rights at every step, vetoing efforts to ensure equal pay and cutting funding for Planned Parenthood. Then, he became a lead surrogate for the most misogynistic campaign this country has seen."

 

We hope those Tea Partiers understand that THEY are those "right-wing special interests" that the Democrats are talking about.  And the campaign of their President -- Donald Trump -- is "the most misogynistic campaign this country has seen."

 

William Jefferson Hayden opened up the Q & A by throwing a softball question to the liberal Democrat he invited.   She claimed that she supported the Second Amendment for Sussex and Warren Counties, but not for the rest of New Jersey.  As a lawyer, she knows that is a lie, that the laws are the laws for everyone and that the State, when it attempts to maintain or restrict the constitutional rights of its citizens as guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America , does so on a statewide level because to attempt to do otherwise would violate the state constitution. 

 

How can Democrat Hamilton say that the Second Amendment is allowed for someone living in Sussex County, but if that person travels to Essex County it isn't covered there?  Is it because of the racial make-up of Essex County?  Does she believe that the Second Amendment only applies to specific racial or geographic subsets? 

 

Liberal Hamilton served up a line of crap to the Skylands Tea Party and their leaders Amedeo and Hayden were there to make sure the members lined up as they spoon-fed the muck down their throats.  By her answers it is clear that Jennifer Hamilton has no intention of protecting the Second Amendment for ANYONE living in New Jersey. 

 

What a damned shame!  The membership of the Tea Party are mostly good people who want to get together to fight what they see as the takeover of their country by the liberal Democrats.  The spend their valuable time and money to support an organization, only to have the leaders of the group cut a deal and turn around and give them the same steaming b.s. that the mainstream media serves up.

 

Amedeo and Hayden could have made a few bucks by inviting MSNBC to film Wednesday's meeting under the title, "Getting over on the Tea Party" or "Watch as the Tea Party kisses liberal azz."

 

They could have made even more money by having MSNBC tape their February meeting, when Skylands Vice President William Jefferson Hayden trashed Parker Space, a 13th-generation Sussex County farmer, a businessman, and the most conservative member of the New Jersey Assembly.  On vote after vote, Republican Assemblyman Parker Space has stood tall and fought for conservative values.

 

And yet William Jefferson Hayden, public employee union member, 20-year career Department of Transportation bureaucrat, wearing a Tea Party hat that he found in a gutter, invited Assemblyman Space and his wife to the February Skylands Tea Party meeting and then subjected them BOTH to a withering stream of insults and attacks in an attempt to humiliate them and their family.  This was a real dirtbag thing for Hayden to do and not something the membership of the Tea Party group asked for or approved of.  And when it was pointed out that Parker Space had a perfect voting record with the NRA, Hayden trashed the NRA.  Real dirtbaggery.

 

Hayden could not have behaved more differently on Wednesday night.  He all but planted one on the liberal Democrat's behind. 

 

We need a conservative Tea Party.  This sickness has got to end.

Phoebus: The Legislature's resident nutcase

Every now and then, the behavior of some politician reaches that special level where they go beyond simply being bad and end up somewhere around crazy. 

Who can forget Steve Lipski, standing on a balcony at a night club and literally pissing on the voters below?  Then there's Charles Mainor, a Democrat Assemblyman who told voters that he couldn't figure out how websites like "Big Bootie Freaks" made it on to his Facebook page.  On the national level, we've all heard of Anthony Weiner and Hillary Clinton. 

Well move over, because now there's Assemblywoman Gail Phoebus.

Phoebus forwarded emails that revealed a variety of questionable dealings, including compromising the Open Public Meetings Act.  She forwarded the emails from her personal email address, during a period of time when she was a member of the Sussex County Freeholder Board.  But that didn't stop Phoebus from claiming that the computer at her Assembly office had been "hacked" and that legislative aides were in on the "conspiracy."  Forget the fact that she didn't have a legislative office or a legislative computer or was even a member of the Legislature when she forwarded the emails. 

Phoebus would simply forward the sensitive emails to recipients asking what they thought or as parts of chains in response to routine questions, like a telephone number inquiry.  Suffice to say that Phoebus is something of an Internet moron.

Taking personal responsibility is not something Phoebus is comfortable with, so instead, she lied.  Even worse, she involved OLS -- the non-partisan Office of Legislative Services.  Her campaign claimed that OLS had conducted an FBI-style raid on her district office, seizing computers, naming suspects, and "locking down" her legislative office.  But none of it happened, none of it was true.  And when called on it, the campaign claimed it was "satire."

Let's place this into perspective.  Phoebus is not as crazy as Sussex County can get, like the candidate for Sheriff who ended up arrested for conspiring with other cannibals.  Or the candidate for Freeholder who tried to hire a hit man.  Phoebus isn't that kind of howl-at-the-moon crazy.  She's just the kind of crazy who believes that if you imagine something, and then repeat it often enough, that makes it true.  That's a far cry from writing recipes where the main course is your next-door neighbor.

And to be fair to Phoebus, this isn't the only push back her campaign is making, now that she has been cut from the GOP ticket and replaced by former Labor Commissioner Hal Wirths.  Facing a team with more than $250,000 in its coffers, Phoebus has mustered $15,000.  So she's resorted to a, shall we say, "unique" style of campaigning.  This is what her campaign was pushing last week:

Yes, those are what you think they are.  Like we said, some crazy stuff.

Bat-shit crazy!
