Brady gang rallies for Democrat who stalked women

Sussex County Democrats and the Brady gang have come to the defense of Democrat Assemblyman Raj Mukherji.  Raj has little time for the Bill of Rights or the Second Amendment and he's been under attack recently for his role in trying to take away the ability of women and vulnerable adults to defend themselves against attackers.  Raj has a controversial history in this regard, as this video makes clear...


Earlier this week, the Sussex County Democrats enlisted the help of Bridgegate Mastermind David Wildstein in an attempt to take the focus off Democrat Assemblyman Raj Mukherji.  The Sussex Democrats released their statement Wednesday morning at 11am.

The Brady gang called for a rally the same day, after Assembly Democrats in New Jersey formally adopted President Trump's position in respect of the Bill of Rights.  Donald Trump said. "Take the guns first, go through due process second," and the Assembly Democrats agreed, passing Assembly Bill 1217 out of committee.  Raj Mukherji is a key proponent of this legislation.

Trump made his comments at a meeting with congressional leaders on school safety.  Trump was responding to comments from Vice President Pence that families and local law enforcement should have more tools to report potentially dangerous individuals with weapons. 

Pence was taking the Bill of Rights into consideration, when he said:  "Allow due process so no one’s rights are trampled, but the ability to go to court, obtain an order and then collect not only the firearms but any weapons."  To which Trump responded:  "Or, Mike, take the firearms first, and then go to court."

About the same time as Trump was making his controversial statement, the Democrats on the Assembly Judiciary Committee were passing the "Extreme Risk Protection Order" (Assembly Bill 1217),  which suspends due process based on a simple accusation.  A no-knock warrant could be issued, the door of a home or place of business kicked-in, and the property of someone who hasn't been accused of breaking any law seized -- just because a "family member" or "member of law enforcement" believed he or she posed a risk.

Conservative Republican Steve Lonegan offered the following testimony on Assembly Bill 1217:

"In 1971, a group of possibly well-meaning but misguided politicians imposed the Civil Authorities Special Powers Act, which allowed government to take away peoples' rights without charging them with a crime.  It was meant to be a response to violence, but only made matters worse in Northern Ireland.

In considering Assembly Bill 1217, the New Jersey Legislature should recall the words of George Will, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author, who reminded us of the dangers of 'overcriminalization.'  After the death of Eric Garner, which was the result of the New York Legislature sending in the police to enforce a state tax on cigarettes, Will warned legislators that there are potentially grave consequences every time they make a new law and then send in men with guns to enforce it.

Will said:  'Overcriminalization has become a national plague. And when more and more behaviors are criminalized, there are more and more occasions for police, who embody the state’s monopoly on legitimate violence, and who fully participate in humanity’s flaws, to make mistakes.'

Assembly Bill 1217 is open to abuse and has the potential to create many more situations with violent outcomes than those it seeks to prevent.  And, as written, there is no recourse or penalty if the law and its potentially violent outcome was triggered by a simple misunderstanding or a false or malicious report."

No president likes to give up power.  The last to do so, voluntarily, was Jimmy Carter -- and he did so under the shadow of the official criminality connected to the Watergate scandal.  President George W. Bush, President Obama, and President Trump have all expanded the state's power over the individual citizen.  The action by the Assembly Democrats reeks of the British government's desperate move to bring the Irish Republican Army to heel in the 1970's.  Instead of achieving their aim, they made victims out of innocent people and destroyed the reputation of their country's criminal justice system.


Let's not create a new set of victims like the Guildford Four -- only this time with names like the Newton Eleven or the Metuchen six or the Cape May seven...


This is how Republics perish.  This is how democracy dies.


Sussex Democrats mock disability and prayer.

Look at what the Sussex County Democrats put on their Facebook page.  Not only do they attack Republican congressional candidate Steve Lonegan for suggesting that prayer in public school might help change our culture to one that respects life, but their supporters actually mock him for being blind.  Are these people nasty or what?



Sussex Democrats are hypocrites on gun control

The Sussex County Democrat Committee wanted to use school children for a political protest against the Republicans who beat them at the polls last year.  It was pure politics.

Last year, the executive director of the Sussex County Democrats couldn't have been more pro-gun if she tried. 

This is why you can't trust these people. 


Democrats post Racist comment by supporter

Maybe this is all you need to know about some of the "new" Democrats seeking to represent Sussex County?

Instead of working with their Republican and Independent neighbors to get the Democrats who've run the Legislature for two decades to lower taxes, instead of standing up to the billions in new taxes being proposed by Phil Murphy, they are calling people names or holding rallies to bring in more illegal immigrants to compete for jobs, house, and maintain with a shrinking safety net.   It sure ain't leadership.

This is from today...

So this is how these "new" Democrats describe those who fought for us?

Well, here is a "white man" who fought for us (who would have been an "old white man" if he had lived)...



Sussex Dems' poor timing: Anti-Trump rally in Newton the day before a terrorist attack?

Do you remember Kate & Gina?  Those two Democrats who ran for the Legislature as part of Phil Murphy's team.  Well they've been in the news again.


On Saturday evening, the day before running mate Gina Trish would rally on Newton Green in favor of a "no-questions-asked" travel policy for countries that even the United Nations says are infected by violent Islamic extremism, the insiders who compose the "executive board" of the Sussex County Democrat Committee (SCDC) named Kate Matteson as their executive director.  Not the entire county committee, mind you, just the insiders on the executive board.  So they're "democratic" in name only... what's new about that?


The boss of the little politburo that runs the SCDC -- Leslie Huhn -- worked herself up into her usual lather and issued a statement about the "vicious attacks" Matteson had to endure from those mean Republicans.  Leslie won't tell you this, but she voted Republican until a legislator happened to forget her name.  It pissed her off to no end.  Out of spite, she ran against the woman and spit all kinds of bile at her.  And so began Leslie's career in politics.  Yep, she's in it for all the right reasons... pride, with a dollop of hate thrown in. 


Hey, it's all personal for some people, but before you go throwing around words like "vicious" -- maybe you should think back to how your committee and your state committeeperson, and your candidates, tried to destroy the reputation of a family and its business and the livelihoods of its employees.  Nobody did that to Dr. Matteson.  Nobody called the school to complain about you, Leslie.  Nobody called Centenary College to complain about Gina Trish.


You see, it is all a question of perceived entitlement.  Kate, Gina, and Leslie all believe that they are entitled to take any position they want and to trash anybody they want to trash, and nobody is supposed to fight back.  And when somebody does, these Democrats become outraged.  They say it's not fair.  They call for a time out, put on their pussy cat hats and go to the Green and protest how unfair the world is and how against them it all is.


Gina Trish has every right to front a rally on Newton Green in favor of a "no-questions-asked" travel policy for countries that are infected by violent Islamic extremism, but when -- the very next day -- someone from one of those countries infected by Islamic extremism attempts to blow up Americans commuting to work in New York City... somebody else has the right to bring it up and say, "Hey Gina, hey Sussex County Democrats, what the hell are you thinking!"  Free speech works both ways.  If you want to be in politics, you are going to need to grow up and get used to it.


If you are going to condemn "hate" and say you support "respectful discourse," then you cannot have your photo taken vandalizing the free speech of someone who disagrees with you.  Tearing up their posters, throwing them on the ground, stomping on them, shoveling snow on them... these are not respectful acts.  In fact, these are the well documented antics of the National Socialists.  Why don't you just burn the words that you disagree with!  Do it up if it makes you feel better, but don't confuse yourself with a "democrat" when you do.  Democracy requires goodwill, patience, and -- most of all -- humility.  All of which seems in short supply.


And finally.  We all remember the good time Kate and Gina and Leslie had calling Parker and Jill Space names because they happened to attend a Hank Williams Jr. concert and were photographed next to the band's banner which (oh heaven forbid!) features what used to be called "a rebel flag."  Well... you just spent the day before a terrorist attack protesting for weaker laws to combat terrorism.  If you want to call someone a "racist" over a band's banner, be prepared to be called at the very least an "enabler of terrorism."  It works both ways.


Should a letter now go out to every board member and donor to Centenary College demanding the same of them that was demanded of the customers of Space Farms?  Or do we treat each other like neighbors who just happen to have different points of view?


It is time for Kate, Gina, and Leslie to look into their hearts and acknowledge that it is they who behaved very badly and that it was only in response to their bad behavior that they felt any heat at all.  Only in response to their bad behavior.


Going forward, they have the opportunity to behave like human beings instead of entitled ideologues.  For the good of the community, we suggest that they take the opportunity.
