Dirty Deal: Jersey Socked With Immense Tax Hike

Bill Spadea wants to know if there are any NJ Republicans that will step up to help defeat the proposed 23 cents a gallon gas tax hike. 
Or will this just be another burden on the backs of NJ residents.]?

ALERT: NJ Residents Just Hit With HUGE TAX HIKE!

And now this disheartening report from our friends at Save Jersey:

Posted by Matt Rooney On September 30, 2016

No good news gets dumped on Friday, Save Jerseyans. It’s when politicians bury news they hope taxpayers will miss.

This one will be hard to miss if you drive.

A short time ago, Governor Chris Christie announced a deal to raise New Jersey’s gas tax by 23-cents.

This is the first gas tax hike for New Jersey motorists since 1988 (when your Blogger-in-Chief was four years old).

Here are the broad strokes:
  • The state sales tax will be cut from 7% to 6.875% effective January 2017, then to 6.625% in January 2018.
  • The estate tax will be phased out effective January of 2018.
  • Revenue? The eight-year deal is projected to generate $2 billion annually, or $16 billion for the full duration, in addition to $32 billion in federal matching funds.
Interestingly (and likely not coincidentally), this long-elusive compromise came about within 24-hours of a deadly NJ Transit wreck in Hoboken.

Using tragedy as an excuse?

A few folks in Trenton see this for what it is.

“Residents, drivers and commuters rallied against this $2 billion gas tax plan the first time it was proposed in June,” said State Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth), a long-time critic of a hike. “Offering a recycled plan that tinkers around the edges doesn’t change the fact that the public massively opposes a 23 cent per gallon gas tax hike. I will continue to stand up and fight for the vast majority of the people of New Jersey who oppose this tax increase.”

“When Jim McGreevey wanted to impose an envy-tax (the fraudulently named “millionaires’ tax”) he promised that every dime raised would go to property tax rebates. Stupidly, a bunch of gullible Republicans voted for this destructive tax,” Asm. Michael Patrick Carroll (R-Morris) added via Facebook. “The rebates didn’t even last as long as McGreevey. Now, we get the promise that the Estate tax will be eliminated in return for an increase in the gas tax. ”

“I have a six pack which says that one of the first things the Dems do, if they elect the next governor, is to un-eliminate that tax.”

You're Not Really Surprised About This, Are You?

The Daily Caller and other media sources are now reporting as follows:

The Commission on Presidential Debates reported on Friday that there were in fact issues with Donald Trump’s microphone at the Debate Monday evening at Hofstra university in New York.Following the debate, Trump told the press that they “gave me a defective mic. Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room,” CNN reports. Trump posed the question: “Was that on purpose?”

When Trump first reported problems with his microphone, Hillary and many in the media mocked him. It took the better part of the week to find out, but now it appears that Trump was right after all.

Is THIS Clear Enough For You Now? Is It?

Waiting, Waiting In Cold, Damp Rain!

Today, in Michigan where people wait in the cold, damp weather in a long line to get into a Trump rally.
The thirst for Donald Trump and his message is so strong that incredible numbers of people will endure whatever they have to just so they can see him, here him and be with others who feel the same way!

Let A Word To The Wise Be Sufficient . . .

Could This Trend Now Be Solid? Huh?

Trump now leads in swing states Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio and North Carolina following the first presidential debate.

Two things to note here: First, The poll numbers that you see here represent the average of several polls in each state. This is significant because in some of these polls Trump is up by much more than is shown.

Second, although the reporter says we will have to wait to see how the post-debate shakes out, we are now already FOUR days past the debate and Trump is still doing very well.

Keep al this in mind!

Could This Really Be The Big Breakaway?

This is the LA Times poll this morning.
Hillary ends September (NOT a good month for her) six points down while Trump gains and holds his lead for the 16th consecutive day.
Hold on tight, we're about to enter the Big Final Stretch, eveybody!

ShanaTovah! A Joyous And Healthy New Year!

May you be inscribed for a wonderful year.
Shana Tovah!
Happy New Year!

Wondering how to vote? 
Well, let's see: Benghazi; record numbers of people on welfare; worst "recovery" since the '40s, a serious drop in real family income; record numbers of workers dropping out of the labor force; declining home sales; 33,000 deleted e-mails on a private 
server that put our national security at risk; surrender in Iraq and the birth of ISIS; higher rates and fewer choices under Obamacare; riots in our cities; increasing terrorist attacks both at home and abroad; hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants . . . . Nah! 
You don't want to vote on THOSE issues, do you? 
What you're REALLY worried about is a former Venezuelan beauty queen's struggle to keep her figure. 
THAT'S what ya wanna vote on, right?

You Won't Believe The Disgusting Truth!

And yet Democrats assure us there is absolutely NO voter fraud and NO need for voter ID. I wonder why they're so adamant about this, huh?

This Is Basically All You Need To Know . . .

We Stand On The Shoulders Of Giants!

Yes Indeed, It WAS A Very Clear Contrast . . .

Ted Cruz made thsee cogent comments on the night on the debate the other night:
Tonight, a clear contrast was drawn between the two nominees. Tonight, Hillary Clinton made it clearer than ever that if elected President, our future will continue on the same path that is hurting millions of Americans.
If Clinton is elected, we know that the havoc Obamacare is wreaking on American families, on small businesses, and on our healthcare system will continue. We know that President Obama’s relentless efforts to crush the oil and gas industry and to wage war on coal will continue. We know that the Obama administration’s willful blindness to radical Islamic terrorism and the influx of unvetted refugees from nations infiltrated by terrorists will continue. We know that President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty will continue and even expand.
If Clinton is elected, we know that a liberal justice will be named to fill Scalia’s seat and we will lose the Supreme Court for a generation. With that, we know for a certainty that our right to keep and bear arms, our religious liberty and federalism are in danger.
Tonight we received insight into what a Hillary Clinton presidency would look like for Americans. We know that her policies would kill jobs, reduce wages, and continue the downward spiral our country has endured under President Obama.
Tonight, Donald Trump had his strongest debate performance of the election cycle. He drew strong contrasts with Hillary on taxes, regulations, law and order, and the disastrous Iran deal.
Rather than Hillary's America, we need to take a different path. A path that would begin to restore our country from the damage it has suffered the last eight years. We need to unite to defend freedom and restore the Constitution. And Hillary Clinton made absolutely clear tonight she would not do so.

The Dramatic Difference Right In Front Of Us!

Patrick Cassio, a friend from Rahway, NJ writes this about last night's debate:
Who won the debate? That's always the question and it's a matter of what you were looking for. Obviously Clinton has been around and knows a lot. If you want policy wonk stuff she won hands down. But look a little closer and think about WHY Trump is doing well with many voters going back to the primary. People are TIRED of policy wonk stuff. They heard it from too many Presidents and wannabes over a generation. Trump is not a politician and that was on full display last night. But her answers to most of the questions? "Grow the middle class blah blah . . . " How many times have we been hearing that over the years? And all the foreign incursions and failures? She's been right in the middle of them -- and now she's going to be different? Bottom line: Hillary did just what she was expected to do and was smart and spot on. The problem for her is millions of Americans don't believe it anymore.Trump comes across a little naive and rough, but he looks REAL. And thats what people are looking for  -- REAL CHANGE! It took me awhile to figure out what they see. I now get it.

Live Blogging The Big Debate - The Wrap

The debate gets sloppy in the end with Hillary making personal personal attacks.

She was biting tonight -- at times, thus just this of vicious.

Trump points out that Hillary has spent "hundreds of millions of dollars attacking me and it hasn't had any effect. It's not nice but I'm not going to attack her in kind. Meanwhile, she hasn't moved up in the polls.

They really don't like each other very much.

This was ugly.

It mirrored the great (and sometimes dirty) divide in our nation.

Live Blogging The Debate, Continued . . .

Trump hits hard on ISIS and goes back to his theme of Clinton and Obama creating ISIS by leaving Iraq (and leaving no troops there) the way they did.

Clinton responds by basically blaming the whole thing of George W. Bush. She essentially says it was HIS fault.

Hillary's red dress seems to be bothering a lot of people. It's a power color. That's why she's wearing it. It may be boomeranging, however. It's VERY strong. Trump is wearing a cool, calming blue tie. Red arouses emotions. Maybe she was hoping to trip up Trump with it tonight. It doesn't seem to have worked.

Trump doesn't look orange tonight. His skin tone is normal and his hair does not seem freakish. trump is sticking to his points tonight but he doing it in a genuine, unmanned,  unscripted way. He comes across as spontaneous and genuine. He has hammered home is thmes again.

Trump to Hillary: "You were Secretary of State when ISIS was a little infant. Now it's in over 30 countries. And YOU'RE going to stop it?"

Then Trump gets maybe in over his head by trying to explain that he WASN'T in favor of the war in Iraq.

Trump: "I have a WINNING temperament. I know how to win. She doesn't."

Hillary's getting called on style and substance tonight like never before. No one has ever hit her like this.

Live Blogging The Big Debate -- Continued . . .

Now Trump knocks Hillary for once calling certain violent black youth "super predators."

People are commenting about Trump's apparently sniffling during the debate> I dunno what it is. maybe he's got an allergy. So far it's no big deal far as I can tell.

Hillary often sounds canned and scripted. Trump may seem unpolished or even somewhat sloppy at times but he comes across as more real, more authentic, as someone with more heart. He talks plain and direct.

Trump now being pressed on the "birther" issue and the moderator has given Hillary an opportunity to hit it our of the park. "He has started his political activity based on this racist lie," she says.

Now Hillary says of Trump: "He has a long record of engaging in racist behavior."

Trump to Hillary: "When you try to act holier than thou, it really doesn't work."

Hillary almost smirks at Trump and seems dismissive. She's just this side of condescending.

Live Blogging The Debate - Part 3

Now Hillary hits hard at Trump for "taking bankruptcy six times."

"Sometimes what happened in business will be really bead for government," Hillary says. But Trump goes back to the basics of business and he pivots nicely.

On race, Hillary just spews off liberal Democrat talking points while Trump stresses law and order and he does it with an appeal to the African-Americans in the city.

Trump is speaking real, clear, plain language and he's triumphing on the issue of safety, law and order. He's really hitting it out of the park now. "We need law and order in the inner cities because the people who are most affected by what is happening are African-Americans and Hispanics."

Now Hillary is trying to tell us that the crime problem has basically been solved and she starts race baiting again.

Hillary hits at gun control. Then she says "implicit bias is a problem for everyone, not just police." And here she's following the same "I know better" liberal line.

Hillary seems to want police to be community activists and community organizers.

Live Blogging The Debate - Part 2

Trump is succeeding in making the first part of this debate all about companies and jobs leaving our country and he's hitting hard on NAFTA, TransPacific, bad trade deals, high taxes, regulations and other policies that are choking jobs.

As he goes on the attack, Hillary smiles and laughs.

But now Trump needs to back off a bit and Holt needs to enforce off a bit as Hillary takes more than her allotted time.

And so now Holt turns to Trump's tax returns. And Trump turns it back into a discussion of lost jobs and bad trade deals.

But Holt hits at him again -- even though he has yet to hit at Clinton. And Trump hits back by asking her to release her 30+ thousand e-mails.

Hillary's being allowed to use way more than her designated time.

She says she "made a mistake" by having a private e-mail server. Trump hits back: "That wasn't a mistake. That was deliberate. That was on purpose. And that was a disgrace. And the country thinks it was disgraceful."

Now Trump is showing his mastery of numbers and business. "We lost six trillion dollars in the Middle East. We could have rebuilt our country twice."

Now Hillary accuses Trump of building his business "on the backs of the little guys."

Live Blogging The Big Debate - Part One

So the debate begins

A very formal and subdued setting. And we start with the boring particulars.

The debate is separated into 15 minute segments.
Hillary emerges in red, all smiles. Beaming.
Trump towers over her and seems ready,

Holt's first question is skewed liberal and seems designed to favor Hillary. He paints a fallacious rosy picture of the economy.

Hillary looks pale and in her first answer she immediately gets somewhat wonkish. But she tries to be more human by mentioning her granddaughter's birthday.

Trump says China is using our country as a piggy bank for themselves and they're stealing our jobs. He talks about jobs fleeing Michigan and Ohio. "We have to stop our jobs from being stolen from us," he says. He focuses almost solely on the loss of jobs and says reducing taxes will stimulate the economy and create jobs.

Hillary calls Trump's plan "trickle down economics' but gets a zinger in calling it "Trumped up trickle down."

Then she knocks him: "Donald was very fortunate in his life" and goes after trump and his father. She hits him hard for getting loans from his father.

And Trump goes back to our "defective" trad agreements. Then he hits her: "She's been doing this for 30 years and why didn't she make the VAT tax and the trade agreements better?"

Trump's asked: "How do you get the jobs back?" The first thing you do, he adds "is don't allow the jobs to leave in the first place."

Hillary's on her game tonight -- so far. She's hitting hard. But Trump sees ready to fire back.

Hillary's being allowed to monopolize the debate so far and Holt is allowing her to do it. Hillary is now pressed by Trump on what SHE did and she immediately cites what her HUSBAND did to attract jobs. Get this! Can you believe this?

Trump is hitting back now. And he takes the initiative. And he pushes back hard on NAFTA and TransPacific. Now Trump regains momentum. He's letting Hillary talk and talk. And he tells her: "You are going to regulate businesses out of existence." Now Trump is on HIS game and he's going after Hillary hard.

So Holt jumps in and tries to change the subject.

Now, Hillary's beginning to get a bit shrill.

34 Catholics You Really Need To Know!

The Donald J. Trump campaign announced a new group convened to provide advisory support to Mr. Trump on those issues and policies important to Catholics and other people of faith in America.

The Catholic Advisory Group is a key element of the Faith and Cultural Advisory Committee to the campaign. And Mr. Joseph Cella, Founder of the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, will serve as the Catholic Liaison for the members and the campaign.

The formation of this group represents Donald J. Trump’s endorsement of a range of issues and policies important to Catholics and other Christians, and his desire to have access to the wise counsel of such leaders.

“On the issues and policies of greatest concern to Catholics, Donald Trump will fight for Catholics whereas Hillary Clinton is openly hostile to those issue of greatest concern to Catholics and will attack the core teachings of the Catholic Church, and has worked against them as First Lady, as US Senator and as Secretary of State, and would continue to do so if she is elected President,” said Congressman Sean Duffy.

“Catholics are particularly concerned that she would pack the Supreme Court with 3-5 young ideological liberals whose decisions will have far reaching and long lasting implication for the Catholic Church and the lay faithful on everything from the pro-life issue, to religious liberty to health care and educational mandates, just to name a few,” Duffy concluded.

“America is on the wrong track, as economic opportunities wane and families face a coarsened society where people of faith feel bullied, disrespected and marginalized. We have slipped so far, so fast, at a pace quickened by our failure to uphold the dignity of unborn life,” said Matt Schlapp, Chairman of the American Conservative Union. “There are moments when people of deep faith have to stand up. Voters who know deep in their soul that America needs to heal also know we need refreshing, bold conservative leadership. 2016 is one of those times and I’m proud to support Donald Trump for President.”

Remembering A Sports Legend, American Hero

Golfing great, American patriot and US sports legend Arnold Palmer has died at age 87.

Palmer was a truly gracious and charismatic sports hero who captivated not just golf players and fans but the entire nation with his charm, his grace and his sportsmanlike manner. He was also a hugely successful businessman and irrepressible public figure. Few icons have remained so enduringly beloved as this man.

Arnold Daniel Palmer (September 10, 1929 – September 25, 2016) an American professional golfer, is generally regarded as one of the greatest players in professional golf history. He won numerous events on both the PGA Tour and Champions Tour, dating back to 1955. Nicknamed "The King", he was one of golf's most popular stars and its most important trailblazer, because he was the first superstar of the sport's television age, which began in the 1950s.

Palmer's social impact on behalf of golf was perhaps unrivaled among fellow professionals; his humble background and plain-spoken popularity helped change the perception of golf as an elite, upper-class pastime to a more democratic sport accessible to middle and working classes. Palmer is part of "The Big Three" in golf during the 1960s, along with Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, who are widely credited with popularizing and commercializing the sport around the world.

Palmer won the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998, and in 1974 was one of the 13 original inductees into the World Golf Hall of Fame.

How Trump Can Win The Big Debate . . .

They're saying that the bar has been set exceptionally low for Donald Trump heading into Monday night's big presidential debate. And Hillary's crybabies have been whining about this all weekend.
But, if expectations for Trump are exceptionally low, Hillary Clinton has no one to blame but herself.
After all, she's spent millions of dollars on ads depicting Trump as a rude, crude, irrational, demonic, bumbling idiot.
So now, one could argue that all Trump has to do is show up for the debate and act reasonably normal and somewhat sensible.
But, don't buy that. Because the media (98 percent of whom are Hillary allies) will be ready to jump with full force on any Trump misstep, no matter how small or insignificant.
So, Trump won't just be debating Hillary, he'll be debating a whole galaxy of self-appointed experts who control not just the media but also academia, big labor, much of corporate America, the arts and the popular culture -- in other words, the whole Effing Establishment.
So, when Trump says he's an outsider, he's speaking the truth.
But in 2016 that's also his greatest strength.
And that's what Trump must lead with.
So, here are five things that Trump can do to decisively win the debate:

1) Speak from the heart. Give voice to the ordinary people who pay the bills, pay the taxes, raise our families and have actually seen their net income go down over the past eight years. These are the people who are not only worried about their own decline on the national stage but America's demise on the world stage as well. And these two must and can be linked. What's more, they're also worried about their own personal safety. And no one can address these issues like Trump.

2) Stay on offense without being offensive. Now, this is going to be a tough one for Trump. For one thing, people actually expect him to be bellicose. If he's not, he may seem inauthentic and that's the worst thing he could do because his "realness" is what actually most clearly differentiates him from the hopelessly artificial Hillary. So, let's amend this and say "stay on offense without being too offensive or overly offensive." We think that's eminently doable. We think Trump can handle that.

3) Don't be provoked. Don't be goaded by Hillary. Answer directly and strongly but don't feel a need to respond to every slight or perceived slight (either by her or the moderator) in kind. Instead, turn the moment into something more meaningful, more positive and . . .

4) Present a real vision for the future. What George H. W. Bush called "the vision thing" really is important in these debate and Trump has gotten better at this as the campaign has progressed. In formal speeches, at campaign rallies and even in his TV ads Trump is effectively contrasting himself with the past (the Obamas and Clintons) and presenting a powerful, inviting, sunny image of the America that could be. In the public relations business we understand that nothing engages an audience quite like painting a visual picture -- a picture that forces us to imagine better times for all and to aspire to such a goal.

5) Make news, in a good way. This might be a good time to unveil a new proposal, reveal an unexpected endorsement or maybe even announce a cabinet pick or two. That'll not only surprise people and capture attention but it may even throw Hillary off.

Finally, we would urge Trump to channel Reagan, just a little.
Would it be too much to ask Trump to poke a bit of lighthearted fun at himself for a change or show a softer side? Think about it.

On Sunday, Maybe You Want To Remember This....

Real Estate Taxes - Where Does YOUR State Rank?

Click on any state on the map. The smaller the number, the lower the property tax is in that state.
Bottom Line: New Jersey has the HIGHEST property taxes in the nation, by far!
Ranked #51, New Jersey's taxes are higher than 49 other states and the District of Columbia. What's more, New Jersey's effective property tax rate is ALSO the highest!
Why has New Jersey's state legislature taken NO action to reduce property taxes and why do they keep taxing and spending and raising our state debt?
The facts speak for themselves: New Jersey has been poorly served by our public officials in Trenton -- especially our DEMOCRAT-controlled legislature.
