State Committeewoman Jill Space Endorses Lonegan

Sussex County's highest ranking female Republican Party official says the GOP needs a True Conservative to defeat Democrat Congressman Josh Gottheimer.

  
Republican State Committeewoman Jill Space, (R-Sussex), released a statement yesterday announcing her support for conservative Republican Steve Lonegan in his campaign for congress in New Jersey’s Fifth Congressional District.

“Steve Lonegan is a true conservative and exactly the kind of Congressman Sussex County needs in Washington,” Space said.  "When the going gets tough, Steve is there -- unflinching, unwavering, and completely committed to his friends and allies.  I know he will win strong support in Sussex County as he has in the past."

Space's husband, Parker, is the Republican State Committeeman for Sussex County and earlier endorsed Lonegan in his capacity as Assemblyman along with his colleague, Hal Wirths.

“Taking back the Fifth Congressional District is a priority for the Republican Party in New Jersey and for the National Republican Congressional Committee," Space said.  "Steve is the strongest, most experienced, and best equipped candidate we can nominate to defeat Josh Gottheimer."

Lonegan has already been endorsed by the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), Bergen County State Senator Gerry Cardinale, Mrs. Ann Kievit, President of the Northwest New Jersey Taxpayers' Association, Rev. Greg Quinlan, President of the Center for Garden State Families, on behalf of New Jersey for a Conservative Majority, Alexander Roubian, President of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS), United States Senator Ted Cruz, Warren County State Senator Mike Doherty, Sussex County Senator Steve Oroho, Assemblyman Parker Space, and Assemblyman-elect Hal Wirths.

Family feud in Phoebusville

It can't be fun living in Phoebusville these days.  While Assemblywoman Gail Phoebus claims to find the Hank Williams Jr. band banner "disgusting" she gained a dissenting opinion from a member of her very immediate family, who apparently approved of a photo of Jill and Parker Space standing next to it at a Hank Williams Jr. concert enough to "Like" it on Facebook.

 

The outgoing Assemblywoman is apparently conducting her own "revenge tour" this week.  First she trashed her former running mate (Parker Space) and her former campaign treasurer (Jill Space), then she sat down to dictate a full-length blog attack on the Space family and her one-time love object, Wee Willy.  It's a very small world indeed. 

 

Jill and Parker Space are only the latest to suffer from the bad-karma that surrounds Phoebus' political projects.  Her first running mate lost a race she was expected to win (but Phoebus won), her first campaign treasurer's son married her daughter and it ended badly, she helped start this blog and the editor promptly died, everyone she served with on the Freeholder Board have seen their careers destroyed, and Sussex County's most experienced civil servants quit after serving under her for less than one term.  An insatiable gossip she dimed friends on the SCCC board and ruined their careers and falsely accused staff of wrongdoing.  She left the Freeholder board in the midst of a huge crisis which is still unresolved and joined the Legislature where she promptly gossiped her way out of office -- while accomplishing nothing while a member.  Bad karma all around.  And now she is about to risk her business in an upcoming legal battle.

 

A big part of the blog post was a lecture by Phoebus on the dangers of alcohol.  To anyone who knows her, this is nothing new.  Gail Phoebus always lectures people about alcohol or, more often, gossips about people and their supposed "addictions."  Of course, she holds no medical or psychological training with which to base such claims.  It's just gossip.  Fun.

 

Phoebus has claimed that, having been "clean and sober" for some years now herself, she "knows the signs."  We think it's just an excuse for what is, in our opinion, her current addiction: Gossip.

 

In politics, Gail Phoebus has been a ruinous storm belching clouds of noxious gossip.  It is best for all involved that she be allowed to retire gracefully into the West, instead of staying stuck in the law courts out East.

Parker Space keeps cool. Rich liberal Dem has hissy fit.

It's the rich guy from Colorado vs. the farmer from Sussex County. 

Representing the pro-pot lobby, we have Congressman Jared Polis, a liberal Democrat from Colorado.  One of the ten richest members of Congress (net worth:  $400 million) and the first openly gay member of Congress to adopt children (2) with his male partner. 

Standing for traditional values, we have Assemblyman Parker Space.  Farmer, small businessman, and -- like his grandfather, his dad, and son -- a volunteer fireman.  A conservative Republican legislator married to Trump delegate Jill Space.  The father of two daughters and a son. 

Earlier this  week, Republican Space related a story told to him by a Sussex County resident who had just visited Boulder, Colorado:  "A constituent of mine told me the story of his visit to Boulder, Colo., and how disgusting he found it. People lying in the walkable town center, stoned, dirty and like zombies that you practically had to walk over. What's worse is that some actually had their children with them. He told me not to let this happen to Sussex County."

Democrat Polis took issue with the Sussex County resident's free expression of what he had experienced, as well as Assemblyman Space's exercise of free speech in relating it.  The Congressman sent the Assemblyman a letter, but being a true politician, he didn't keep it man-to-man and instead got the press involved.  Yes, Democrat Polis actually sent his letter to the New Jersey Herald and the Star-Ledger before sending it to the man it was addressed to, Parker Space.  That's an arsehole stunt if ever there was one.

The press pounced on it like dogs in heat.  In his letter, the liberal Democrat took offense that anyone would think differently than he does and insisted that the Sussex County resident who made the observations was mistaken.  Hey Congressman, it is called "an opinion" -- get over it.

The Congressman insisted that things are great in Boulder since the legalization of marijuana in January 2014, but the crime statistics (as reported to the FBI) don't actually bear him out:

And a simple review of the police blotter for last weekend, indicate that the "high life" might not be without its "incidents":

Blotter - April 29, 2017

A passenger in a Jeep SUV suffered serious injuries after the vehicle rolled over at the on-ramp to northbound Foothills Highway from Table Mesa Drive.  The driver was also injured and an arrest is pending once he is released.  The 50-year-old-man will be charged with Driving Under the Influence/2nd Offense, Reckless Driving and Vehicular Assault.  17-5148

A 31-year-old man was arrested for Third Degree Assault and a woman and two other men were cited for brawling after police were called to the Walrus, 1911 11th Street on a large fight.  17-5151

Blotter - April 28, 2017

A 65-year-old woman was injured after she was struck as she was trying to cross the street at Broadway and North by a woman driving a Lexus. The driver was cited with Careless Driving Resulting in Injury. The victim was transported to Boulder Community Health.  17-5096

Police responded to the 1100 block of 12th Street on the report of a fight in progress where a male threatened residents with a folding knife.  The suspect was located later in the day at Illegal Pete's, 1124 13th Street.  The 22-year-old man was arrested for Felony Menacing, Third Degree Assault, Criminal Possession of an Identification Document and Criminal Possession of a Financial Device. 17-5113

No wonder Congressman Polis earns just a 33% rating from his state's law enforcement community.  But not to worry, Polis has a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood, 100% from the National Abortion Rights Action League, and 100% from the ACLU.  Can you spell L-I-B-E-R-A-L?

The multi-millionaire liberal Congressman ended his letter by inviting Assemblyman Space to Boulder to see for himself.  A nice gesture on the face of it, provided one wasn't forced to spend too much time with a sanctimonious politician like Democrat Polis.

In reply, Republican Parker Space kept it cool, issuing this statement to the media:

"I want to thank Congressman Jared Polis for his offer to visit Boulder. I understand that he is one of the richest men in Congress as well as one of its more liberal Democrats. 

As a member of the one percent, I am sure the Congressman can afford to fly me out there and I look forward to possibly taking him up on his offer, as long as ethics counsel approves. I know there are a lot of great local breweries there and when I am in Colorado I do love to hunt.

I also would like to point out that it is still early days in Colorado and that the Congressman might want to look at some of the recent developments in The Netherlands, a long time drug tourism destination.  Over the last decade the government there has had to take steps to restrict tourism, has reclassified some forms of marijuana as hard drugs, and has banned certain other popular recreational drugs."

Apparently, Congressman Polis hasn't read the substantial research on the decades of drug tourism in the Netherlands and its effects on that country, its economy, and its people.

There is a bizarre side note to all this.  Like Congressman Polis (who was born Jared Polis Schutz), Parker Space's opponent in this year's primary election is a fellow who also flipped his name.  David Wygonski Atwood was David Atwood Wygonski until a couple years ago.  Apparently the openly gay liberal Democrat did it in 2000 for no other reason than "he liked it better." 

Oh well, different strokes... but we still think this identity dysphoria is just a bit weird.

Tea Party leaders invite Democrat, ban Republican

The two nitwits who have hijacked the Skylands Tea Party -- Douglas Amedeo and William Jefferson Hayden -- have followed up their lovefest with liberal Democrat Senate candidate Jennifer Hamilton by banning conservative Republican Assemblyman Parker Space.  In last year's presidential election, Parker Space and wife Jill Space ran Donald Trump's effort in Sussex County and Jill Space was elected as a Trump delegate to the Republican National Convention where she helped pass the most conservative Republican platform in over two decades.

 

Nevertheless, the two were removed from the Tea Party group's membership list and blocked from the group's Facebook page.  This follows up on the group's  February meeting, when Skylands Vice President William Jefferson Hayden lured the Space family to a meeting in which they were publicly attacked in what was clearly an attempt by Hayden to humiliate them.  Of course, Hayden's thuggery failed. 

 

Last week, Hayden and Skylands President Douglas Amedeo invited liberal Democrat Jennifer Hamilton to promote her leftist agenda before the group.  As reported by the New Jersey Herald, most Tea Party members were disgusted by the leftist agenda served up by the Democrat lawyer.  Others, like liberal Harvey Roseff, were clearly delighted by her pro-sanctuary cities, pro-abortion, anti-gun, anti-Trump agenda.  Roseff hates Trump.  That's his opinion.  We all get that.

 

The lengths some people will go in their quest for attention and/or power was demonstrated over the weekend, when Amedeo and Hayden trashed the Pro-Life movement just to bash Steve Oroho and Parker Space.

 

In a Facebook post, Amedeo wrote:

The legislation Amedeo attacked is called the 20/20 "Babies in the Womb Feel Pain" bill.  Senator Oroho introduced the legislation at the request of the Pro-Life movement in New Jersey. 

 

The goal of the 20/20 Project is to pass legislation to address the scientific fact that unborn babies are pain-sensitive at 20 weeks.  Every other country on earth recognizes this fact except North Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore, Canada, and the Netherlands.  Senator Steve Oroho is the prime sponsor of legislation in the State Senate, while Assemblyman Parker Space and Assemblywoman Gail Phoebus have co-sponsored companion legislation in the State Assembly.  Similar legislation has been passed in 14 states and 2017 has been designated as the year of the big push to bring our laws into line with the rest of the civilized world.

 

The 20/20 Project is an ecumenical movement embracing members representing many religious denominations.  It is actively supported by numerous Christian and Jewish congregations and its work has been taken up by several organizations including the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Metuchen, the Respect Life Office of the Archdiocese of Newark, Project LEARN, the New Jersey Family Policy Council, New Jersey Right to Life, the Center for Garden State Families, Corazon Puro, LifeNet, the League of American Families, among others.

 

Despite the best efforts of pro-abortion, social liberals like New York City lawyer Amedeo to label this legislation "Dead-on-Arrival", there are thousands of volunteers working across New Jersey to pass the 20/20 "Babies in the Womb Feel Pain" bill.  There are many thousands more praying for its passage.

 

Last October, there was a major planning conference in Scotch Plains to work out grassroots lobbying and prayer events in support of the 20/20 bill.  Hundreds of activists attended, including many from Sussex County.  At this 20/20 Vision Conference (Equal Rights for Babies in the Womb) the Pro-Life movement announced that passage of the 20/20 bill was its number one legislative priority. 

 

The "advertising" Amedeo referenced in his attack on Oroho was a call to prayer, this being Lent.  Secularists like Amedeo and Hayden get angry when they see elected officials asking people to pray -- in this case for infants in the womb.

 

To further add to his "sin" (in the minds of Amedeo and Hayden), Senator Oroho asked people to attend a meeting to pass the 20/20 bill in Sussex County.

 

 On Thursday, April 20th, at 7:30pm, the 20/20 Project will hold a presentation and prayer meeting at Our Lady of the Lake Parish Center, 294 Sparta Avenue, in Sparta.  The presentation will be delivered by Christine Flaherty, the Executive Director of LIFENET. 

 

Amedeo actually trashed the entire Pro-Life movement and the National Right to Life scorecard in his rant on Facebook:

Amedeo, Hayden, Roseff and their followers are not conservatives, they are libertarians and social liberals.   They only support scorecards put out by fellow libertarians who support Pro-abortion, Pro-same sex marriage, Pro-legalized narcotics, Pro-legalized prostitution, and Pro-amnesty for illegal aliens.  That is who they follow. 

 

The membership of the Skylands Tea Party should demand that their leaders stop kissing the behinds of liberal Democrats like Jennifer Hamilton and rescind their removal and ban of solid conservative Republicans like Assemblyman Parker Space.
