William J Hayden: Do you agree with President Trump that Americans should come first?

**William J. Hayden is the Vice President of Skylands Tea Party**

In society we protect what we love and care for. 
Our families are protected at night by a minimum of a locked door. And by possibly a weapon of some type.
The rich and connected, have fences, security systems, and armed guards.
And in all instances, we want to know who we are letting in, before they come in, for our protection. 
Our banks, and government buildings all protected as well. And in many instances again, you have to show who you are, or at least show you are not a threat.

So why would we let people into this country without knowing who they are?  
After all, this country is our collective home. We all live here, we should all know that those coming here are at least not a threat. 

Here is a stat that should put things into perspective as to why we want to know who is here.

95% of foreign nationals in federal prison are illegal aliens 

Actually 23% of all federal inmates are illegal

Your safety should be #1 and illegal immigration is unsafe



NJ Assembly: Child Protective Services (DYFS) a cause of heart disease

About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year – one out of every four deaths.  Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. 

18,597 New Jerseyeans died of heart disease in 2016.  In comparison, there were 255 gun murders in New Jersey that year. 

So you would think that heart disease would be a subject taken seriously by those elected members of the New Jersey Legislature.  Think again.

We need to examine the causes of heart disease and address them.  We should not obfuscate those causes with a lot of political clutter.  If anything can be said to cause heart disease, then what earns our attention? 

Enter the New Jersey Legislature.

In order to claim political points against the administration of Donald Trump, the New Jersey Legislature passed a resolution on Monday, June 25th, declaring that it is “sanctioned child abuse” for a government entity to separate a child from its parent or parents.  It went on to declare that the policy of separating a child from its parent or parents causes “long term health concerns such as heart disease and morbid obesity.” 

The resolution – Assembly Resolution 175 – originally made the claim that this policy caused “cancer” as well, but when ridiculed for it on these pages, they removed “cancer” from the resolution.  When removed so easily, one can only ask why it was there in the first place?

AR-175 was specifically directed against the federal bureaucracy, as it is under the administration of the current incumbent, President Donald Trump.  Apparently, the honorables in the New Jersey Legislature believe that the presence of Mr. Trump in the White House has triggered among children a genetic predisposition towards heart disease and cancer.  Of course, this is nonsense.

If there is scientific evidence that the forcible separation of children from their parent or parents causes heart disease or cancer, then it matters not what agency is doing the separating, but simply that the separation occurs.  The disease does not differentiate between President Obama and President Trump or between a federal bureaucrat or one from the state.  If separating a child from its parent or parents raises the likelihood that the child will suffer heart disease – AS IS NOW CLAIMED, OFFICIALLY, BY THE NEW JERSEY LEGISLATURE – then it is the case ALWAYS, not just when President Trump is in office or when a federal agency is doing the separating. 

So here we are.  In its attempt to label Donald Trump with “child abuse”, the New Jersey Legislature has labeled itself with “child abuse” – because there are a host of laws, all passed by the honorables, that give state and local authorities the power to separate children from their parent or parents.  And it is all now, per the New Jersey Legislature, “sanctioned child abuse.”

Are we about to see a host of “corrective” measures by the Legislature to allow juveniles to be housed with a parent in places like Trenton State Prison?  They must know that every day, law enforcement separates family members when they are arrested for breaking the law.  Adult males are housed with adult males, adult females with adult females, and minors/children in juvenile facilities.  That’s a lot of heart disease.

Sadly, it must be pointed out, that it wasn’t only Democrats who participated in this strange formulation.  About half the Republicans in the Assembly jumped at the chance to condemn Donald Trump and those federal agencies involved in border control.  Do they really believe this nonsense or were they just up for a spot of virtue-signaling?  

Are we to presume that they too applaud the current dysfunction at our nation’s borders?  Why has there been no resolution calling for a hardening of border security against the modern-day slavery caused by human trafficking?  Do those Republicans who voted for AR-175 not care about the ease with which narcotics, opioids, illegal firearms, and sexually abused women and children (even infants for purchase) freely flow through our porous border?  Are they not concerned about the threat of terrorism?

Those libertarians among us might want to thank the New Jersey Legislature for officially stating what they have long believed:  That the biggest abuser of children in America is the State.  We don’t know if that’s what they intended, but that is what they have done.

So look out DYFS – those lawsuits are coming!  The State of New Jersey gave me heart disease when they arrested mom for something illegal and shipped me off to a foster home.  I got heart disease and the State Legislature said it was because of what the State did.  Here it is… in black and white.  They say so.

The docket backlog for lawsuits will be measured in decades.  The state will need to double the size of its courts to handle it.

The State House is a closed society, mired in groupthink.  What you get from that is Assembly Resolution 175.  Poorly worded, emotion trumping reason… deadly in a primary and a real pain in the ass in a general.


Concerned about “incivility”? Did you catch DeNiro?

Another day, another lecture from New Jersey’s corporate media about the need for common, ordinary people to mind their language.  This time the lecture was delivered by Messrs. James M. O’Neill and Dustin Racioppi of what was, before the all the corporate hanky panky, the Bergen Record.  

Good points all, good points all.  Yes, human beings should be nicer to one another and should treat people as they themselves would like to be treated. 

But come on fellows, people don’t learn how to behave at church (they don’t fill the pews anymore), they get their morality from television, the Internet, and the entertainment industry.  And that said, a fish rots from the head.  

This is something our media lecturers kind of ignored.  

Hey, take a look at that crowd… check out all those tuxedos and gowns.  

Why do the stinking rich still dress the same way they did back during the Great Depression?  Why do they still wear clothes that nobody else owns or can afford?

They look like they were made up for some Three Stooges comedy skit… only, they dressed themselves this way.

Memo to would be Hollywood Marxists:  If you want to show solidarity with the unwashed masses, don’t wear clothing that would cost the average family a year’s income. 

If you want to show off your wealth, okay, but be cool about it.  Carrying on dressed that way is just rich folks doing what comes natural to them… behaving badly.  Very badly.


Menendez stands with Trump: Canada is the real threat

What’s up with Bob Menendez these days?  Is the senior Senator from New Jersey having memory issues? 

Max Pizarro, editor of InsiderNJ, reported today that Menendez “laid into” President Donald Trump, for arguing with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.  Menendez said: 

“This is a president who reserves the back of his hand for some of our strongest allies and offers incredible support for some of our strongest adversaries… To suggest that Canada is a national security threat is absurd, to ultimately challenge our European allies, an alliance that is the bedrock of creating western democracy, is pretty amazing.” 

Well hold on there old Bob.  Last time you were running, back in 2012, you touted your book to all and sundry.  In it, you had this to say about the threat posed by Canada: 

Solidifying the porous northern border should be a priority for the Department of Homeland Security.  And yet, as of 2007, far fewer than ten percent of the fourteen thousand U.S. agents were patrolling the Canadian border.  How is it possible that we haven’t been focusing on the danger of terrorists crossing the U.S. – Canadian frontier?  Instead, we have been listening to hot air from Lou Dobbs and his allies, complaining about people who would cross (the border with Mexico) in search of jobs as gardeners, busboys, hotel workers, and maids.”  (Senator Bob Menendez, from his book Growing American Roots, published in 2009)  

No fooling.  Senator Bob Menendez wanted America to focus on the border with Canada instead of our southern border.  When it comes to Canada, President Trump and Senator Menendez are brothers from different mothers.  Of course, this is right out of South Park.  So does this make Bob Menendez – ON TOP OF EVERYTHING ELSE – the Senator from South Park?

While taken seriously by our state’s senior Senator, South Park’s farcical “threat from Canada” is a well-known spoof.  A theme song, “Blame Canada”, was nominated for an Academy Award.  Take a moment to enjoy and take note of the last frame with the U.S. Capitol in the background and the lyrics:

Yes, South Park is a comedy cartoon.  But let’s hear from Senator Menendez himself on this.  This is what he wrote in his book: 

“It is an understatement to say that borders are insecure, but the focus on the southern boundary with Mexico has left our northern border even more open to attack than ever.” 

Yep, Senator Menendez has lost it.  He wants to spend taxpayers’ money on securing our northern border to the threat he says is posed by Canada.  It does sound nuts, doesn’t it?  

“The decision to build a fence on our long southern border with Mexico is under way.  The idea of trying to shut out poor people with a wall is wasteful and wrong.” 

“A wall symbolizes exclusion and it makes it less feasible for us to collaborate with Mexico in other areas, such as legal, balanced migration control and counterterrorism.  We need to refocus on building friendships, not fences.” 

“Good fences don’t make good neighbors with this wall.  The existence of the southern-border fence is bad enough, and its estimated four-billion-dollar price tag is mind-boggling.  Meanwhile, Americans appear to fret little about those lightly patrolled 3,987 miles on the Canadian border from Atlantic to Pacific.  Our border with Canada is twice as long as the border with Mexico.”

Well, at least now President Trump will know who to appoint to his new task force to cope with the threat posed by our neighbor to the North.  Heck, with credentials like Menendez has, Trump should make him Chairman.

Bob Menendez, the Senator from South Park… absurd.



Is the darling of LGBT Democrats helping McCann?

After losing the coveted "Column One" position in Bergen County and filing a campaign receipts and expenditures report with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) in April that showed his campaign was deep in debt and not raising enough money to sustain itself, candidate John McCann apparently sent out an SOS to his friends and colleagues.  They responded in a big way.

A former Democrat candidate for Mayor of Bogota (Bergen County) stepped forward to accuse McCann's opponent of saying some pithy things about him a decade or so ago. McCann's campaign neglected to fully vet this Democrat (who they, oddly enough, describe as a "Christian conservative"), who recently attacked the policies of President Donald Trump and the Republican Party.  

Now liberal Democrat Assemblyman Tim Eustace (D-38) -- described by some as one half of the New Jersey Legislature's LGBT caucus -- shuffles up and gets into the act of defending McCann by attacking his opponent in the June 5th Republican primary.  It is important to remember that it was Assemblyman Eustace -- affectionately known by some as "Brother Eustace" (or, as "Major Eustace" by others -- on account of his dashing, British-officer mustache) -- who led the early skirmishes in 2016 against then incumbent Congressman Scott Garrett, who went on to be defeated by Josh Gottheimer in the 5th District.

During one of his recent re-election efforts, it emerged that Brother Eustace had an unresolved issue.  A check of the incumbent Assemblyman's name on the New Jersey Court's public ACMS website, indicated that there were are two "active" (at the time) judgments against a Timothy J. Eustace: 

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 Assemblyman and 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 entity that has taken it upon itself 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.   

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.
