Democrats lie about minimum wage. Pay less.

Kate & Gina -- the ANTIFA twins -- got caught lying when they said they supported a $15-per-hour minimum wage. 

They say that, but when it comes to THEM paying THEIR workers $15-per-hour, the truth is something quite different:

Yes, that is Matteson-Trish campaign manager Ben Silva, the Democrat Party State Committeeman for Sussex County.  The guy Democrat party boss Leslie Huhn hired for ANTIFA twins Kate & Gina. 

Why don't they practice what they preach?

Congenital liars... or just typical rich one-percenters who play at being for the working class but in reality, treat their own workers like dirt.


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.


Local Democrats caught in lie, blame postal workers. 

If you ever wondered why working class voters left the Democrat Party in droves to vote for Donald Trump, you need look no further than Sussex County, where Democrats over the weekend attacked Republican legislators for keeping in touch with their constituents and went so far as to blame the good people and hard-working letter-carriers at the United States Postal Service.  The Democrats claimed that the postal service delivered the mail late, which is not true. 

Democrat candidates Kate Matteson and Gina Trish even wrong-footed fellow Democrat Josh Gottheimer who, as a Member of Congress, has the unlimited use of the United States Postal Service (it is something the bloated Congress gives itself, called "franking").  Unlike the Congress, the members of the state Legislature have no such free mail.  It must be paid for.

Democrats, Kate Matteson, Congressman Josh Gottheimer, Gina TrishNevertheless, Matteson and Trish reminded us that fellow Democrat Gottheimer was part of the team at Ford who sacked 44,000 union workers -- and then sold the idea claiming that it would help make the company more profitable for Mr. Ford.  Again, if you ever wondered why the working class gave up on Democrats...

Gottheimer also recently took credit for a grant that was applied for before he even came to office.  Last month, Democrat Congressman Josh Gottheimer put out a press release that announced a $102,000 Grant for the Wantage Fire Department.  Gottheimer's announcement, dated July 26, 2017, and released by his taxpayer-funded office, stated:

"Today, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) announced that the Wantage Fire Department will be receiving $102,000 in federal funds for safety and operations as a part of the Department of Homeland Security’s Assistance to Firefighters Grant (AFG) program. AFG awards allow fire departments to purchase or upgrade equipment, vehicles, workplace training, and other firefighting and fire prevention activities."

What Gottheimer doesn't say is that the grant is from 2016 -- when Republican Scott Garrett was the congressman.  In his press release, Gottheimer inadvertently points out that, under the Obama administration, money to towns like Wantage was typically held up -- in contrast with the Bush administration. 

And, once again, Congressman Gottheimer tip-toes around the source of the terrorism we face -- calling it "lone wolf" terrorism.  Willfully ignoring the threat of Islamic terrorism by calling it by another, politically-correct name, is weak-kneed snivelry.

It wasn't "lone wolf" terrorism that necessitated the creation of the Department of Homeland Security and the billions spent since.  The Congressman should not ignore the fact that these have been coordinated attacks and that ISIS, the Taliban, Hezbollah, and such are all strains of the same anti-Western, Jihadist ideology.  They differ -- as Stalin and Mao did -- but remain focused on the destruction of America and Western civilization. 

And Congressman Gottheimer still hasn't called out fellow Democrats -- like Kate Matteson and Gina Trish -- for their support of Linda Sarsour, the co-chair of the Women's March, and a self-proclaimed advocate of "jihad" against the democratically elected American government.

Yes, the co-chair of the Women's March actually called for "jihad" against the government of the United States of America.  And Democrats have mostly remained politically-correct silent about it.  Instead, state and local Democrat leaders have praised the Women's March and continue to do so -- lending their support to its leadership while American troops are in the field, engaged in a fight against jihadists.  Why have the Democrats and their candidates refused to comment on these threats of "jihad"?

Perhaps Watchdog should nominate Democrat Gottheimer for a real award -- the Walter Duranty Award -- courtesy of fellow Democrats Matteson and Trish.  The award is given to highlight egregious examples of dishonest reporting and is named after Walter Duranty, the New York Times Moscow correspondent who -- in the 1920s and 1930s -- whitewashed Joseph Stalin’s forced starvation of the Ukrainians (the Holodomor) and many other aspects of Soviet oppression.  Perhaps Gottheimer would appreciate the work done by Matteson and Trish on his behalf?

What's with these Democrats anyway?  Sure, Republicans aren't always on the ball, but Democrats always seem to make it worse.  Maybe comedian Lewis Black, a liberal Democrat himself, is on to something...


Democrat candidates attack local community leader

Today Sussex County Democrats released an attack, on behalf of their legislative candidates, written by Democrat Party operative Fred Cook, of Blairstown.  You may remember that Mr. Cook was the guy who claimed that Assemblywoman Alison Littell McHose was guilty of "treason" for opposing President Obama's policies. 


In doing so, Mr. Cook was channeling the crazy views of others on this subject:


“All 545 sitting in DC right now are guilty of treason... they should all be indicted, dragged out in chains, the evidence a matter of congressional record and unimpeachable.  And all should be subject to all the consequences the law provides up to the firing squad.  This goes for many members and governors in the 50 state capitals, as well.  Treason. “


Now what do you say to that kind of crazy?

In his most recent attack, Fred "Duane" Cook took aim at Sussex County businessman Andy Mulvihill -- a supporter of numerous community charities in Northwest New Jersey.  Mr. Cook doesn't like Mr. Mulvihill because Mr. Mulvihill is as wealthy as Ms. Kate Matteson, one of Mr. Cook's Democrat candidates for the Legislature, who bragged last year about her "high tax bracket".  Apparently being a Democrat one-percenter is good, but being a Republican one-percenter is bad.  Thanks for the double-standard Duane, errr... Fred.


Duane, sorry, Fred Cook also doesn't like the fact that Mr. Mulvihill is involved in a bank that was formed by a number of Sussex County leaders, in response to the problems that local business people faced in getting credit to finance new businesses or to expand existing businesses.  Many of the larger lenders simply didn't care about increasing opportunities for employment in Sussex County,  so the bank was created so that, neighbor-to-neighbor, people could get the financing they needed to foster economic growth and create jobs in Northwest New Jersey.  The Sussex Democrats think that a bad thing because it's Republicans doing it.  Just because they are spiteful.


Of course, the Sussex Democrats loved mega-one-percenter Jon Corzine, a super-rich Wall Street banker who spent over $100 million to buy elected office.  Yep, go check it out for yourself on Wikipedia -- $100 million.  And these Democrats say they oppose "big money" -- LOL, they are Big Money!


Now the Sussex Democrats, including Duane Cook and the whole Matteson-Trish-Hamilton team are backing another mega-super-dooper-rich one-percenter (a one-percenter of the one-percent) by the name of Phil "I wrecked the economy" Murphy. Yeah, he's another one of those Wall Street bankers -- only this one shares in some of the responsibility for what happened in the run-up to the Great Recession of 2008.  Even his fellow Democrats call him out for being a phony:


"Democrats running in the primary for New Jersey governor on Thursday attacked front-runner Phil Murphy, saying he is using his wealth to buy political support and questioning his progressive stances... the personal cash he's poured into the campaign and his time as an executive at Goldman Sachs.

'We have a candidate who has made the system awash in money. It's obscene the amount of money,' Wisniewski said. 'It's pay-to-play at its worst.'

Murphy, who has put $15 million of his own money into the race so far, denied he bought the backing of New Jersey's 21 influential Democratic county party chairmen, who exercise discretion over ballot positioning.

...Wisniewski also said that Murphy had backed fracking during a speech in Germany, where he served as ambassador for former President Barack Obama, ...Murphy also came under attack for investing in corporations opposed by environmental groups that have backed Murphy. Murphy promised to put his holdings into a blind trust if elected.

Johnson seized on the point, though, telling Murphy that his current progressive stances were contradicted by his investments and previous comments.

'What is it in your time at Goldman Sachs that should give anyone any assurance that the progressive values you're talking about today are progressive values you've acted on at Goldman Sachs,' Johnson asked." (Associated Press, May 12, 2017)


So let's get this straight... a Sussex County community leader who always puts his hand in his pocket to help local charities is no good for starting a bank to help grow businesses and create jobs here in Northwest New Jersey.  Why?  Because he's a Republican.


But a mega-rich Wall Streeter who helped wreck our economy as a top guy at the bank that helped trigger the Great Recession.  He is great!  Why?  Because he's a Democrat.


Got it.


Sounds nuts.




Sussex Democrats won't tackle the opioid crisis

The Sussex County Democrats talk big about tackling the opioid crisis that has hit the county in a big way.  But their record in choosing candidates says otherwise.

Most lawyers never represent anyone who has anything to do with the drug trade and the vast majority have never, ever represented a drug trafficker in court.  But somehow, the Sussex County Democrats have found candidates who do just that.

Take the Democrats' candidate for Freeholder, lawyer Dan Perez.  He represented a Mr. Daniel Melugwo, a citizen of Nigeria, who was caught smuggling heroin into the United States. 

In July 2011, Mr. Melugwo attempted to sneak heroin past U.S. Customs officials at JFK Airport.  He was apprehended and a grand jury indicted Mr. Melugwo on two counts:

- - -

Mr. Melugwo pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 46 months in federal prison in addition to fines and forfeiture. 

Mr. Perez argued that Mr. Melugwo's lacked the ability to pay a $5,000 fine -- despite the fact that he had travelled by airliner from Paris, France, into the United States and that he had $13,000 in his possession when arrested.  Perez claimed that the $13,000 should not be touched by the U.S. officials:

From the Court records, it appears that Mr. Melugwo never did pay his fine. 

How's that for justice?  $75 bucks on a $5,000 fine.  How many of you could get a deal like that? 

The Democrats' candidate for State Senate, Jennifer Hamilton, is another attorney who has blotted her copybook by taking some questionable clients.  But more on that later. 

Yes, they will argue, everyone has the right to legal representation.  That's true.  But it doesn't have to be YOU.  We don't need elected officials who have defended, argued for, and empathized with clients who are bringing the poison into our communities and who are making the addiction problem worse.

Maybe if attorneys weren't so eager to get paid to represent drug traffickers, the drug traffickers would think twice about coming to America?
