ANTIFA's Kate & Gina support Corzine-era school aid

New Jersey has the most inequitable system of education funding in America and, as a result, the highest property taxes.  The income tax -- which was passed 40 years ago on the promise of reducing property taxes -- is a failure and a scam that subsidizes the property tax bills of well-to-do professionals in places like Hoboken and Jersey City, at the expense of working families in rural and suburban towns.


New Jersey is rated as just about the worst place in America to start a business and the state has lagged in job creation because of a putative regulatory regime and a tax structure that compares unfavorably with the rest of America.  This inability to create employment for its citizens leads to a cycle of despair that includes high unemployment, underemployment, debt, foreclosure, record levels of poverty, and child hunger.


The politically-appointed, unelected state Supreme Court has destroyed the ability of suburban towns to determine their own future and it has deprived people in rural communities of the use of their land without compensating them for their loss of rights.  The unelected Court has stripped the elected Legislature of its primary role of determining how the people's money is spent and it has moved power away from the voters and into the hands of the political bosses who are responsible for their appointment.


And Kate & Gina... they are cool with all this.


At Tuesday night's debate in Ogdensburg, the ANTIFA twins drooled all over the legacy of faux-liberal Governor Jon Corzine (Democrat - Goldman Sachs).  It was Corzine, it will be remembered, who raped the working families of rural and suburban New Jersey, in order to feed the political patronage machines of urban school districts.  Under Corzine, less money made it into the classrooms, while administrative overhead ballooned. 


At Tuesday's debate, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson explicitly defended the Corzine era-school funding formula -- specifically praising the corrupt and essentially unaudited free lunch program and the program that provides extra-funding for non-English speaking children.  Matteson defended the fact that the so-called Abbott school districts absorb most of the available state school funding, even though half the state's economically disadvantaged children live outside the Abbott districts.  In so doing, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson merely confirmed that she is, in fact, no different than any other urban Democrat in wanting to screw over the taxpayers of Sussex and Warren Counties.


Meanwhile, the other ANTIFA twin -- Gina Trish -- attacked her Warren County neighbor, Senator Mike Doherty, and his Fair School Funding plan, which would which cut property taxes in Sussex and Warren Counties by backing up every school child in the state with enough school funding to cover the basics -- instead of a few urban districts getting all the money to fund a bloated administration, political patronage, and non-educational bells and whistles.  ANTIFA Trish is fine with the current formula that makes working families in Sussex and Warren Counties subsidize the property taxes of rich one-percenters in Hoboken and Jersey City.


Senator Mike Doherty says ALL CHILDREN'S LIVES MATTER.


The ANTIFA twins Kate & Gina support the current Democrat mantra that wants to keep the subsidies going to rich one-percenters, political patronage hacks, and well-connected corporations -- at the expense of people like us.


"Dishonest Kate" Matteson gets confused at debate

At Tuesday night's highly choreographed debate in Ogdensburg, Democrats Kate Matteson & Gina Trish followed the script provided them by their handlers from the office of Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace.  But at times, Kate & Gina -- affectionately known as the "ANTIFA twins" because of their involvement in those pro-Sanctuary State/ pro-Muslim/ illegal immigration/ anti-Trump rallies held on Newton Green -- appeared to make statements that belied a lack of historical knowledge of the recent political history of New Jersey.

For instance, Matteson made the statement that "only a decade ago, Sussex County was  booming" and then attempted to blame the lack of it today on the Republicans in the Legislature.  In fact (and as anyone with even the slightest knowledge would know) Sussex County's current economic difficulties are the result of the Highlands Act, which was pushed through against the objections of the county and its property owners by Democrat Governor Jim McGreevey.


The Highlands Act was major Democrat Party legislation that created a regulatory nightmare for the people who reside on 859,000 acres in Sussex, Warren, Morris, Hunterdon, and Passaic Counties.  This Democrat legislation took away the property rights of thousands of people and made the government their masters.  The late Senator Bob Littell fought to get exemptions for certain towns within the Highlands Region, and Jim McGreevey acknowledged this in his book covering his time as Governor. 


Since being signed into law on August 10, 2004, by Democrat Governor Jim McGreevey, the Highlands Act has been responsible for suppressing the economy of Sussex County.  Economists agree that because of the regulatory hurdles imposed by state legislation like the Highlands Act, it took New Jersey longer to recover from the Great Recession than neighboring states.  According to the Pew Charitable Trust, New Jersey lagged behind most states (and all of its neighbors) in economic growth since the Great Recession.  One reason for that is the fact that its largest undeveloped land mass has been locked-up and quarantined to economic growth and job creation.


And let's be clear:  The Democrats did that.  Kate & Gina's political party. 


At Tuesday's debate, "Dishonest Kate" Matteson said that Sussex County needed to be more "inviting to business."  That's true, but you  will first have to get rid of all the disinviting regulations passed and put into place by her party -- the Democrat Party.  Because of Democrats like ANTIFA twins Kate & Gina, the Tax Foundation rates New Jersey as the worst state in America for its business climate.


So don't let the ANTIFA twins fool you with their talk of "growth" and "jobs". 


They support the destructive Highlands Act.  The only "growth" they are looking for is bigger government and more regulation of our lives -- our businesses, what we eat, what we say, and how we think.  The only "jobs" they want are more political patronage jobs for their buddies.  More government jobs -- less free market.


LD38: Did Tim Eustace ever clear up his bail bond debt?

Legislative District 38 should be a competitive district.  Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace is looking pretty dashing these days, especially for a guy who should be worried about holding on to his 35 vote majority.  He doesn't appear to be, and it is a measure of just how vigorous an opposition he has faced this year that he has the extra resources to send his legislative aide (a young gent with frosted hair) to assist the Democrat legislative candidates in Sussex County.

Yep, instead of engaging in door-to-door combat in Hawthorne, Assemblyman Eustace's aide was at a debate in Sussex County, cheering on the Democrat team that has become affectionately known as the ANTIFA twins and their big sister, Jennifer "Boom Boom" Hamilton.  That right, it's no accident that "Kate & Gina" rhymes with ANTIFA.

On Saturday, while the volunteer firefighters of Sussex County gathered with their families in Newton for the annual firefighters' parade, Kate & Gina's ANTIFA allies where holding an anti-Trump rally on Newton Green, demanding that all restrictions on immigration from Muslim nations on the terror watch list be ended.  Yeah, right, let them in even though there is no reliable government to vouch for who they actually are.  Brilliant idea!

Later, "Boom Boom" Hamilton tried working the crowd of firefighters arm in arm with the neo-Marxist organizer of the anti-Trump rally.  Hey, somebody should tell "Boom Boom" that the American Democrat Party was traditionally anti-Marxist in the form of Presidents Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Lyndon Baines Johnson -- and that Democrat Jimmy Carter slapped the first ban on travel from a Muslim terrorist nation.

But now back to the Democrat aide with the frosted hair.  His presence at the debate got us thinking about his boss, and we recalled that there was still a question left unresolved from his last campaign, when an issue was raised regarding two "active" judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace.  These were found on the New Jersey Court's public ACMS website.

A search of the details reveals that two civil cases filed in Bergen County are connected with these judgments.  They are dockets DC-624821-89 and DC-625025-89.  These cases refer to civil actions taken by the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency against Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607. 

453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, is the same address used by Assembly candidate Timothy J. Eustace.  Could the Timothy J. Eustace with the two outstanding judgments be Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace?

Who is the other party in the case?  Who or what is the Leonard Shaw Bail Bond Agency?  Well, they are now known as Kirk Shaw Bail Bonds.  The company website advertises that they are "directly across from the Bergen County Jail" and have "24-hour service."  Here is a look at their website:


Who uses a bail bond company?  To explain that, here is a video by a well-known New Jersey attorney:

So what we have here are two outstanding judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace, by a bail bond company.  These relate back to two civil cases in which, apparently, Timothy J. Eustace owed something to the bail bond company.  This could relate back to a criminal case, for which the bail was needed.

Now it is important to understand that these court records are maintained by the same allies of the Democrats who have taken it upon themselves to dictate the education funding formula in New Jersey.  These people are idiots, so there is every possibility that the Court's records -- just like the Court's judgments -- are full of crap.  In a phrase, these people suck large, so this might be just another of the Court's balls-ups.

Of course, Assemblyman Timothy J. Eustace of 453 Golf Ave., Maywood, NJ 07607, can probably set the record straight.  So, Brother Eustace, if you would like to, we'd be happy to.


Sussex Democrats use vigil to attack opponent

Last month, dozens of Sussex County residents met on the Green in Newton to hold a vigil in support of efforts to end opiate addiction.  Most were there for an honest, solemn purpose.  Some were there to get dirt on their neighbors.


It is no secret that Kate Matteson wants Parker Space's job.  She wants it bad enough to try to damage his business.  She wants it bad enough to try to turn a solemn vigil into a political sting operation.  While everyone else was praying to end the community's curse of opiate addiction, Matteson was trying to screw somebody over.


In a Politico column published yesterday, Democrat candidate Matteson admitted that her operatives used the vigil to try to lure her opponent into a conversation, tape it, and then use it as a kind of blackmail.  Perhaps the goal is to force Assemblyman Space out of office, much as the Left has attempted to force President Trump out of office?  This would represent a direct challenge to democracy and the will of the voters because Assemblyman Space is one of the highest vote-getters in the Legislature of either party. 


The question is this:  What kind of person would use a vigil for this purpose?  The vigil was to be a non-political gathering of concerned residents.  Who would authorize such an action?  Who would attempt to sell it to the media?


Democrat Senate candidate Jennifer Hamilton dismissed the whole affair as a personal clash between Matteson and Space, telling Politico that she believed it was about "Parker Space venting his frustration about what he perceived as an attack on his family business.  And that was the premise of the conversation. That was the build-up to that moment.  I don’t feel I need to be brought into peoples’ personal disagreements or battles with one another in terms of their personality conflicts. I think it’s clear from what we’ve seen in our local media that there is conflict between the two of them [Space and Matteson]."


As it turns out, the recording is not a very professional one and contains a number of garbled voices.  It is unclear if Assemblyman Space's is even among the voices present on the tape, while another voice (a woman's voice) apparently agrees with a negative assessment made of candidate Matteson, and still another voice repeats the phrase "elitist one-percenter" when referring to Democrat Matteson, the well-to-do-spouse of a wealthy doctor.


In the article, Matteson, who only began voting in 2016, actually tries to compare Assemblyman Space to President Trump -- fiercely attacking both in the process.  She may have only started voting last year, but she seems determined to make up for it with an extra dose of venom.


This isn't the first time candidate Matteson has used a solemn occasion for political purposes.  On September 11th, she and her running mate, Gina Trish, attended their first 9/11 observance and promptly turned it into a campaign photo opportunity.  It was rather disgusting and occasioned the remarks of many present for its gross lack of class.  Candidate Matteson might be upper class when it comes to having money, but she lacks it when it comes to manners.


Matteson & Trish ignore modern slavery, human trafficking

In today's New Jersey Herald, Democrat candidates Matteson & Trish made one of their most foolish arguments to date, claiming that the Hank Williams Jr. band logo was the "most symbolic visual of slavery."  Once again, these argumentative and nit-picky schoolmarms demonstrated their complete lack of understanding and common sense.

Are they really so dense that they do not understand that there are more people in slavery today than at any time in human history?  According to the United Nations and other international agencies, there are upwards of 45 million or more people enslaved today across the world and millions within the United States.

Recently, the Democrats attended a campaign rally at which they displayed a banner with a symbol of that enslavement -- the Islamic crescent -- along with the wiccan symbol signifying the triumph of evil.  Islamists continue to believe in the enslavement of non-Muslims and Islamic countries are among the biggest offenders at turning a blind-eye or even officially condoning slavery.

Legislators like Senator Steve Oroho and Assemblyman Parker Space are leading the fight against modern slavery.  They have proposed the Human Trafficking and Child Exploitation Act (S-2928/ A-4503).  Senator Oroho is considered a national leader -- up there with Ashton Kutcher -- in the fight against modern slavery.

The most "symbolic visual of slavery" today -- in 2017 -- is probably the flip-flops some appear to like so much, made with slave labor and sold with an enormous mark-up to willing American consumers.  There are a host of products and services that Americans use that depend on enslaved victims.  Then there is the sex trade -- including Internet porn -- that some Americans can't seem to live without.  Look there for slavery today.

Again and again, Matteson and Trish have demonstrated their insensitivity to the real problems of today.  They appear to live exclusively in the bubble of the one-percent and that is a big problem for average working people in Sussex, Warren, and Morris counties.
