Is There Any Hope At All For The NJ GOP?

Can the Republican Party in New Jersey survive?
Does it have any future at all?

Isn't it a shame that we even have to ask ourselves this question?

But after last Tuesday's election we have no other choice. Because not only did the voters of Joizee
re-elect a thoroughly corrupt, indicted United States Senator (a man severely admonished by his own colleagues) but they also went ahead and apparently turned away every GOP congressional candidate in the state save one. True, one of the seats may still be in play but the prospects for retaining it do not look good.

Do you know what this means?

It means that New Jersey has provided the Democrat Party with ten percent of its nationwide congressional victories in just one election. We're talking about New Jersey -- the state with the highest property taxes in the nation; the state with a notoriously bad business climate; the state that is sinking under the weight of endless government regulation; the state that teeters on the brink of insolvency due to runaway government spending; the state that has long been the butt of jokes because of its parasitic environment that serves as a breeding ground for corruption.

And the Republican Party can't find a way to win here? Can't win even a few offices? What wrong with this picture?

Well, a lot is wrong. An awful lot.

And, to turn the corner, action must be taken now. To begin with, here are five steps we can take:

1) Clean house at the state GOP.
For too long the state Republican Party has been under the control of a group of martini sippers, pearl clutchers and teeth gritters. These country club Republicans have been content to lose election after election and then pitifully bargain for whatever crumbs are left to them. (To them, not us.) They're no better than the people who voted for Menendez because "we know what we've got". Well, we know what we've got at the top of the NJ GOP and it's time for them to go.

2) Stop running away from the base.
When you're a hopelessly no-growth minority party to begin with why would you run away from your conservative base? This makes no sense at all! You start with what you know you have and you build from there. You don't chuck it! Yet that's exactly what too many New Jersey Republicans have done time after time. Wake up call: The only NJ GOP congressional candidate who won this time around is an avowed, lifelong conservative who's adamantly pro life. Hellooo . . . anybody home?

3) Get rid of the slick consultants.
The same tired group of tasseled-loafered consultants have been advising GOP candidates year after year and they've led us nowhere. They make big bucks for this. They're classic insiders -- mimics of their counterparts inside the beltway. They whip up false hopes, collect their dough and then disappear just before the votes are counted. Send them back wherever they came from and keep them there.

4) Trump's the POTUS. Deal with it.
Donald Trump is not only the President of the United States but he's also the undisputed leader of the Republican Party. The state GOP could learn a lot from him. But instead, they hide from him or trash him altogether. President Trump follows his gut. He rightly distrusts consultants and built a movement based on instinct and sheer force of will. He's not afraid to take risks and encourage a populist uprising. In short, he's not afraid of real people -- the people who actually do the hard work; the people who pay the bills; the day-to-day Americans who make democracy work. At this point, what does the New Jersey Republican Party have to lose by following Trump's lead?

5) Spark an uprising!
New Jersey needs nothing less that a taxpayer revolt -- a grass-roots veritable insurrection aimed at ousting the corrupt and contented Trenton insiders who inhabit the riverside sludge-pile known as the statehouse and all the other edifices that dot the nearby landscape. If the state GOP can't get its act together and trigger this revolt, then we, the citizens and taxpayers of New Jersey must do it ourselves, We must do it even if we have to march on Trenton as an Army of Action championing awareness, access and affordability. In short, we must take back our state before absolutely nothing is left. Avanti!

Veterans Day: Do You Know Its History, Meaning?

World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” - officially  when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. 
However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh mont, exactly one hundred years ago today. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

In November 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

The original concept for the celebration was for a day observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning at 11:00 a.m.

The United States Congress officially recognized the end of World War I when it passed a concurrent resolution on June 4, 1926, with these words:

Whereas the 11th of November 1918, marked the cessation of the most destructive, sanguinary, and far reaching war in human annals and the resumption by the people of the United States of peaceful relations with other nations, which we hope may never again be severed, and

Whereas it is fitting that the recurring anniversary of this date should be commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations; and

Whereas the legislatures of twenty-seven of our States have already declared November 11 to be a legal holiday: Therefore be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), that the President of the United States is requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the officials to display the flag of the United States on all Government buildings on November 11 and inviting the people of the United States to observe the day in schools and churches, or other suitable places, with appropriate ceremonies of friendly relations with all other peoples.

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday—a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as "Armistice Day." Armistice Day was primarily a day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its place the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

On that same day, President Eisenhower sent a letter to the Honorable Harvey V. Higley, Administrator of Veterans' Affairs (VA), designating him as Chairman of the Veterans Day National Committee.

In 1958, the White House advised VA's General Counsel that the 1954 designation of the VA Administrator as Chairman of the Veterans Day National Committee applied to all subsequent VA Administrators. Since March 1989 when VA was elevated to a cabinet level department, the Secretary of Veterans Affairs has served as the committee's chairman.

The Uniform Holiday Bill (Public Law 90-363 (82 Stat. 250)) was signed on June 28, 1968, and was intended to ensure three-day weekends for Federal employees by celebrating four national holidays on Mondays: Washington's Birthday, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Columbus Day. It was thought that these extended weekends would encourage travel, recreational and cultural activities and stimulate greater industrial and commercial production. Many states did not agree with this decision and continued to celebrate the holidays on their original dates.

The first Veterans Day under the new law was observed with much confusion on October 25, 1971. It was quite apparent that the commemoration of this day was a matter of historic and patriotic significance to a great number of our citizens, and so on September 20th, 1975, President Gerald R. Ford signed Public Law 94-97 (89 Stat. 479), which returned the annual observance of Veterans Day to its original date of November 11, beginning in 1978. This action supported the desires of the overwhelming majority of state legislatures, all major veterans service organizations and the American people.

Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls. The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date, but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Mass Murder In Cherry Hill? Yes, It Actually Happened!

It was a bright, sunny day in Cherry Hill (NJ). A lovely June day like any other -- the first day of summer, June 21, 1972.
But the day soon turned dark and bloody.
Before it was all over, 12 innocent people were shot and six of them died.
It happened at the Heritage Office Building at 383 Kings Highway at 2:30 pm.
Edwin James Grace (pictured) was the man who committed the crime before he turned a gun on himself during a shooting spree. He died at Cherry Hill Medical Center.
Grace, 33 years old, had been partly paralyzed and unable to talk since he was admitted to the hospital with a bullet lodged at the base of his skull. According to the police, Grace apparently shot himself behind the left ear with one of the two sawed-off .22-caliber rifles he wielded during the attack on office personnel.
Grace directed his rage at an employment agency in the building -- an agency that failed to get him a job earlier in the year.
Grace lived in Brooklyn and worked as a Pinkerton guard. 
Grace was described by his family and friends as a quiet man and an avid reader. William Linn, vice president of the Pinkerton agency, said that Grace had worked off and on for the agency since August, 1971, and had not received a single demerit.
The personnel office was one of those shot up by the gunman during seven minutes of terror for 40 office workers in the two-story building. Reportedly, the gunman walked from one office to the next, shooting and reloading his weapons as he went, waving women workers out of the way and shooting only men.
The police were alerted by a telephone call from one of the wounded men. They quickly surrounded the building, fired tear-gas canisters inside and entered a few minutes later. The shooting had ended by then, and the police did not exchange any shots with the gunman.
Grace was carried out with the dead and wounded, and the police did not realize who he was until they found seven 20-bullet clips in his pocket. The police said that more than 100 bullets had been fired inside the building.
It was a very sad day for Cherry Hill which was then in one of its greatest periods of growth. To this day, many people remember this bloody event.

A Special Message To All Area Catholics . . .

To the people and clergy of the Church in Philadelphia: 

As many of you will remember, less than two months ago each of the Catholic bishops of Pennsylvania pledged to offer substantial new sources of support for survivors of clergy sexual abuse. In the weeks since then, we’ve worked zealously to keep that promise. Today in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, we are honoring that pledge, with a special concern for victims burdened by time-barred claims.

The damage done to innocent young people and their families by sexual abuse in the past is profound. It can’t be erased by apologies, no matter how sincere. And money can’t buy back a wounded person’s wholeness. But what compensation can do is acknowledge the evil done and meaningfully assist survivors as they work to find greater peace in their lives.

To that end, I’m announcing today the creation of a new reparations program available to anyone abused in the past by clergy of the archdiocese. This “Independent Reconciliation and Reparations” effort will be funded by the Archdiocese. We will pay the amounts that independent claims administrators deem appropriate.

While the total number of claims and the ultimate funding required cannot be known at this time, the financial commitment from the Archdiocese will be significant. Initial funding for the program will be provided by existing Archdiocesan assets. Additional program funding will need to come from borrowing and the sale of archdiocesan properties. Which properties will be sold has not yet been determined.

Note that no money to fund the program will come from our Catholic Charities Appeal, Seminary Appeal, other donor-designated funds or donations made to parishes, ministries, and schools.

This new program will be separate from, and add to, our already existing survivor-assistance efforts. The good work of the Archdiocese’s Office of Child and Youth Protection, led by Leslie Davila, a former victim-assistance officer with the Philadelphia District Attorney and a victim’s advocate for 19 years, will continue. Ms. Davila’s team has provided more than $18M dollars of assistance to victims already, and again to be clear, today’s new compensation program is in addition to those efforts.

I want to turn now to the new compensation program and some of its details.

At the very start of our efforts to create a new private reparations program, we consulted Ms. Lynn Shiner. Ms. Shiner is a survivor of violent crime herself and has spent her 22-year career as a victim’s advocate in Pennsylvania working with and on behalf of survivors of all types of abuse. Ms. Shiner was the director of the Pennsylvania Office of Victims’ Services, and she oversaw Pennsylvania’s public victim compensation program. Under her direction, this state fund has distributed more than $100 million to victims. With Ms. Shiner’s guidance, we designed our program based on input from dozens of victims about what they expect and need from such an effort. Ms. Shiner has generously agreed to be an ongoing part of this program’s work. She will be the Victim Support Facilitator and will be available to help survivors in coming forward, presenting their claims, and finding appropriate services within and outside of the Church.

This program, however, is about more than compensation of victims. It’s also about apologizing to victims, recognizing the harm the Church has done, and continuing the critical work to ensure abuse is prevented. The program will include an independent review of our current policies, input on our training programs, and recommendations for steps toward increased emotional and spiritual healing in our community.
This reconciliation and reparations effort needs to be, and will be, independent of the Church. Leaders in our community who have impeccable credentials will administer it. To assure this autonomy, an Independent Oversight Committee, chaired by former U.S. Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell, will supervise the effort. Joining Senator Mitchell on the committee will be Kelley Hodge, former Interim District Attorney for the City and County of Philadelphia; and Lawrence F. Stengel (Ret.), former Chief Judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Victims’ advocates have stressed that the program must allow survivors to receive redress quickly without burdensome administrative or court-type procedures. When we canvassed the country for the very best claims administrators, it quickly became clear that Mr. Kenneth R. Feinberg and Ms. Camille S. Biros, two nationally recognized experts, are extraordinary at this work and have now developed special experience working with multiple dioceses. Mr. Feinberg and Ms. Biros will administer all aspects of the claims process, under the supervision of the Oversight Committee. These administrators will have complete authority to determine eligibility of individual claims and the amount of reparations for survivors who come forward.

I need to emphasize again that this effort is entirely independent of the Archdiocese and is confidential. The program is designed to help survivors come forward in an atmosphere where they are secure and respected, without the uncertainty, conflict, and stress of litigation. On November 13, Senator Mitchell and the team involved in this effort will hold a separate press conference providing full details and answering any questions on the program. I invite our news media and the general public to listen carefully to what they say.

I want to thank these extraordinary public leaders for their service in this work to repair the damage of the past and ease the suffering of survivors and their families.
Finally and most importantly: I deeply regret the pain that so many victims carry from the experience of sex abuse. I hope this program will bring them a measure of peace.

The Crisis Confronting Us: What To Do Now

So, there's been yet another mass shooting.

And it has happened in a state with some of the strictest gun laws - California.

But that won't in any way diminish the focus on guns and murder. And maybe it shouldn't.

What to do now? Certainly, we cannot go on like this with mass murder seemingly becoming the norm. And the time has long since passed when Democrats and Republicans need to fins common ground on this problem.

True, no single action will be a panacea.
There's no easy answer. But steps must be taken.

To any reasonably sane person the following steps would appear to be obvious priorities:

1) The assault weapons should probably be re-eneacted. There's no guarantee it will stem the tide of violence but there's no reason not to put it back into effect, either.
2) Background checks must be toughened.
3) Much tighter controls need to be put on gun ownership by persons with mental disorders. In the case of unstable or questionable persons who already possess guns, the idea of a gun ownership restraining order seems to have merit.
4) Bump stocks must be banned.
5) Hollywood and the popular culture and the media must be held accountable. The glorification of violence must be halted.
6) The crisis of boys with absent fathers must be addressed. It's nothing less than a time bomb.
7) We need renewed focus on troubled veterans who are well-trained in the use of firearms. Many of these people apparently are not being identified and helped.
8) Respect must be restored for the sanctity of human life and that means that we must have the courage to address the abomination that is abortion on demand. Remember: respect for human life is not a selective matter.

Doing The Right Thing For Our Veterans!

In honor of Veterans Day, which takes place on Sunday, November 11th and will be observed as a Federal Holiday on Monday, November 12th, two regional Catholic elementary schools, Mater Dei Regional Catholic School in Lansdale (Montgomery County) and Saint Katharine Drexel School in Holland (Bucks County), will celebrate Veterans in their local communities with special events.

Friday, November 9, 2018
Mater Dei Regional Catholic School
10:00 a.m. 
493 East Main Street
Lansdale, PA 19446
(Montgomery County)

Mater Dei’s sixth grade students will lead first through eighth graders in celebrating veterans through prayer and song during a ceremony honoring the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.   Between 75 and 125 Veterans including members of students’ families attend the program annually.  

Following a special procession of veterans into the Mater Dei gymnasium, the sixth graders will act as Masters of Ceremonies introducing students in various grades who will offer prayers and songs.  A wreath-laying ceremony in the Saint Stanislaus Parish Cemetery, located across the street from the school, will take place immediately following the celebration in the school gymnasium.

Thursday, November 15, 2018
Saint Katharine Drexel Catholic School
10:00 a.m.
1053 Holland Road
Holland, PA 18966
(Bucks County)

The Saint Katharine Drexel School community will honor over two dozen local veterans and active military members during its annual Veterans Day Celebration.  Students, faculty, and staff will open the morning with a warm welcome and introduction of the veterans in attendance.  The program will include a musical tribute, an appreciation ceremony, and a presentation of handmade gifts to each veteran in attendance. Those gifts are the work of Saint Katharine Drexel students.  

Last year, Saint Katharine’s Maintenance and Custodial Assistant, Ethan Himes, left for Parris Island for Marine Corps Boot Camp.   Prior to his departure the school community surprised him with a sendoff celebration.  This year, students will write letters to Ethan and create a video to wish him well before he is deployed overseas in spring 2019.

How Runaways Cost The GOP The House . . .

The thought of Nancy Pelosi being Speaker of the House and second-in-line of succession to the presidency?
Well, it's just plain loathsome.
And here's what makes it even worse: It coulda fairly easily been avoided.
Who's to blame, then?
The answer is simple. Lay it at the feet of the Republican House members who either retired or resigned. OK, so some of them were really old and a few were forced to resign because of problems they brought on themselves.
But most of them simply ran away like a buncha wimps. The word went out inside the beltway that a Big Blue Wave was coming and they headed for the hills. These cowardly runaways are the people who cost us the House. They denied us the power of incumbency, forced us to quickly cobble together a collection of replacements (many of whom were novices) and emboldened the Democrats and their cohorts.
In our own area, Frelinghuysen, LoBiondo, Costello and Meehan all ran away. OK, so Meehan made his own mess. But the three other seats were probably all winnable.
And shame on Paul Ryan for running away as well. He was the ostensible "leader" but he cut and run like a squeamish little toddler. When the "general" does that, what kind of example does that set for the troops?
Last night's results show us the GOP coulda kept the House, if even by a whisker. But too many country club Republicans left the greens to go sulk in the clubhouse, sipping their martinis and snickering at those they left behind. Shame on 'em -- every last one of 'em!

It SHOULDN'T Be Easy To Vote: Here's Why

Did you vote today?
Did you have to go through some trouble?
Was it crowded or difficult finding a parking place? Did you have to battle inclement weather? Did you have to wait in line? Were you inconvenienced?
Because maybe it reminded you that voting is a right and a privilege granted to all eligible citizens but it is also a treasured responsibility -- even an obligation!
Was it easy for our nation's Founding Fathers who put their sacred honor on the line to declare our independence and form this country? Was that easy?
Was it easy for those who fought in the revolutionary war or the civil war or the two world wars or the Vietnam war of the gulf war? Was it easy for any of them who fought to save our democracy and guarantee our rights? Was that easy?
Was it easy for those who crossed this country in wagon trains to settle the land?
Was it easy for those who risked it all to come to this country legally and assimilate and make a new life?
Was it easy for the people who went into the mines or built the skyscrapers or discovered the cure for diseases or farmed the fields or went into space or discovered inventions or made products that changed our way of life and made us the envy of the world? Was any of that easy?
No, it wasn't. And so, voting should not be easy.
It should not be a common convenience.
It's not like breezing through the drive through or commanding Siri or posting on Instagram or accessing Amazon. And it shouldn't be like any of that.
Because that's not what voting's all about.
You should have to think about voting and you should have to do something -- something demonstrative -- to vote. Voting involves a conscious decision and the public, participatory manifestation of that decision.
When voting become a common convenience (and this is becoming all too prevalent) like brushing your teeth or popping a couple of slices into the toaster then we're headed in the wrong direction and we're losing the very meaning of the act.
Voting is serious.
Voting is consequential.
Going to vote should be like entering a civil cathedral and professing your commitment to responsible citizenship.
Voting is sacred!

If For No Other Reason Than This . . .

Our dear friend, Christine Flowers, writes as follows:
If I were dying and on a respirator, I would drag myself to the polls to vote against Democrats for this alone.
”After an extensive investigation that included the thorough review of all potentially credible evidence submitted and interviews of more than 40 individuals with information relating to the allegations, including classmates and friends of all those involved, Committee investigators found no witness who could provide any verifiable evidence to support any of the allegations brought against Justice Kavanaugh. In other words, following the separate and extensive investigations by both the Committee and the FBI, there was no evidence to substantiate any of the claims of sexual assault made against Justice Kavanaugh. The details of the Committee’s investigation, broken down by claim, are provided below.”
 In the photo above: An anguished Ashley Kavanaugh watches as her husband courageously defends himself against scurrilous, baseless charges. DON'T FORGET THIS when you vote!
