New Jersey State Senator Vince Polistina criticized the Biden Administration for offering Atlantic City International Airport as a possible place to house NYC migrants.
“My message to President Biden and NYC Mayor Adams is ‘hell no!’ Atlantic County residents shouldn’t be forced to pay the price for the Biden Administration’s disastrous handling of our border and the outrageous ‘Sanctuary’ state and city policies of Democrats in Washington, New York, Trenton and across the country,” said Polistina (R-2). “I call on Governor Murphy, and US Senators Booker and Menendez to join me in opposing this attempt to dump unvetted migrants at Atlantic City Airport—and spreading a humanitarian crisis they created to our backyard.”

America is going through a sort of collective nervous breakdown right now. Of course, it’s largely driven by politics. But there are other factors as well: history, ideology, culture, demographics and complicated social fissures.
And literally everything feels upside down or the reverse of what it ought to be. For example, just look at the political parties: the traditional party of the working class is now the party of socio-economic elites while the party that was always thought to represent the well-to-do is now the party of working people.
And now we face an historically unprecedented situation with the leader of the political opposition being arrested and threatened with jail. And it makes you wonder whether we will ever recover from this or whether we are headed toward some type o doomsday.
While things might seem terribly grim, we’re going to get through this. And, like they say — the way around is through, So, we’ve got to work our way through it and we will. We will go through this upcoming political campaign and the right person will emerge — someone who will capture the public’s imagination and show the way forward. It won’t be easy. It will be noisy, anguished and full of upheaval. But we’re going to come out the other side of this. And, God willing, we will be better for it!

Her hit songs include "Where the Boys Are," "Don’t Break the Heart That Loves You," "Lipstick On Your Collar," "My Happiness, "Stupid Cupid," "Who's Sorry Now" and "Mama" and they are still being played today. It's New Jersey native Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero, otherwise knows as Connie Francis, the singing sensation of the 1950s and 60s. She's 85 now!

New Jersey State Senator Declan O’Scanlon sharply criticized Rutgers ongoing COVID vaccine mandate as being out of step with science and logic following news that Rutgers University is continuing to require students to provide proof of immunization from COVID-19 or face possible dis-enrollment from the school.
“It’s baffling to see that from what should be a leading voice of science-based rationality, comes arbitrary garbage,” said O’Scanlon (R-13). “We now know for an absolute fact that the COVID vaccine protects no one except the recipient of the vaccine. Broad-based policies like this should only be enacted with the goal of protecting individuals from someone else’s action or inaction. It’s not the job of Rutgers, or Governor Murphy, or anyone else to enact a policy to protect me from myself and my own decisions– or from some perceived protection of my own self due to my own decisions.”
Rutgers was the first university in the nation to require their students to be vaccinated from COVID-19, according to a Rutgers press release.
“Further highlighting this absurdity and inconsistency is that Rutgers is mandating the primary vaccine series but not mandating boosters. It’s a ludicrous policy; any benefit there might have been from the initial vaccine has long since waned in the face of continuously evolving strains.” O’Scanlon continued. “We are all very likely being exposed to COVID on a regular basis, in some form, just by virtue of interacting with people. It is extremely probable that no one who has been out and about in society in any way over the course of the last 3 years hasn’t been exposed to COVID—and doesn’t have some level of natural immunity. Evidence of how ludicrous this policy is just keeps piling on.”
Although the federal government made the long-awaited announcement that the public health emergency was over months ago, Rutgers University still requires students to provide proof of immunization to attend classes.
“Rutgers students who don’t want to get the vaccine for whatever reason should be allowed to not get the vaccine and still attend college– that should absolutely be no business of irrational Rutgers administrators,” O’Scanlon concluded. “Good job Rutgers for putting another stake in the heart of the credibility of institutions of higher education and the greater health policy community. Maybe the good news is that there’s so little credibility left the net result isn’t impacted that much by this ludicrous mandate.”

Legislation prime-sponsored by New Jersey Senator Michael Testa and co-sponsored by Senator Vince Polistina that would establish a Boardwalk Preservation Fund to construct, repair, and maintain boardwalks and structures throughout the state’s coastal communities was signed into law today.
“Boardwalks are an economic driver for New Jersey tourism and generate millions of dollars in revenue for the state. The signing of this legislation makes a historic investment to improve the infrastructure of these iconic attractions,” said Testa (R-1). “The establishment of the Boardwalk Preservation Fund will have a significant return on investment by bolstering tourist appeal and opening additional opportunities for businesses to generate revenue. Most importantly, this fund will help our shore town communities preserve the historical significance of these structures.”
Senator Testa’s bill, S-3989, establishes the Boardwalk Preservation Fund within the Department of Community Affairs (DCA) to award grants to municipalities and counties for the purpose of supporting boardwalk, ancillary, and appurtenant structure projects along the Shore. The bill utilizes American Rescue Plan COVID State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds and appropriates $100 million to the DCA to administer the fund.
Municipalities, counties, or a combination of both who are awarded grants through the DCA Boardwalk Preservation Fund would be required to make a contribution or expenditure no less than five percent of the project’s cost. Under the bill, grant applicants who make a contribution or expenditure greater than five percent would be given preference by the DCA.
A grant applicant that has one of the highest fifty distress scores on the 2020 Municipal Revitalization Index would not be required to make a contribution or expenditure under the bill.
“With the signing of this bill, we are making a monumental investment into our shore town communities which are the lifeblood of our tourism industry. The Boardwalk Preservation Fund will provide a significant boost to support the long-term economic success of the New Jersey Shore,” said Polistina (R-2). “Millions of people travel from all over the world to enjoy our historic boardwalks and beaches. This fund will help our shore towns preserve and maintain these popular tourist destinations by enabling them to construct and make necessary repairs to these critical structures and landscapes.”

A wildfires raged in Maui amidst an inferno of devastation and a rising death count, Joe Biden spent 12 of the last 14 days in Delaware, mostly on the beach. While innocent people were immolated along one ocean, Joe Biden sat seemingly oblivious alongside another ocean.
When asked to comment on the rising death toll in Maui, Biden incredibly answered "no comment." Earlier, while taking a leisurely bike ride, Biden was asked to comment on the "devastation in Maui." He answered: "we're looking at it"
Over the same weekend Kamala Harris also spent her time seaside but she was in tony Martha's Vineyard hobnobbing with the glam set at a private $10,000 per person fund raiser.And none of this is new. In fact, since taking office, Biden has spent 372 days — 39.7% of his presidency — on vacation. Yes, he's actually spent more than a year on vacation!

Doug Burgum: A self-funded billionaire who nobody knows. Does being Governor of North Dakota qualify you for anything? Did being Governor of Arkansas qualify Bill Clinton? 2.5
Chris Christie: Oh, c'mon. We can't rate Chris Christie. We love the guy and wish he was doing better in the polls. We can't be objective about Christie, but we will tell you this: we would never, ever count him out.
Ron De Santis: So much potential, and yet . . . He should have paid attention to the open letter we wrote him with lots of sound advice. There are still things he can do to turn this around but right now we can't rate him higher than a 5, and that's may even be generous.
Larry Elder: He failed in his bid to become Governor of California so, what's he doin' here? 2
Nikki Haley: We like her. But sometimes we think she simply tries too hard. Anyway, she's yet to really define herself and her campaign. 4
Will Hurd: Well, it's nice that he's from Texas. We like Texans. But other than that, we couldn't tell you much about this guy. 1
Asa Hutchinson: Here we go with a former Arkansas governor again. Is it something in the water in Arkansas or is it just the compelling desire to get the hell out of that state that drives these people. On top of all that, this guy's downright annoying. 2
Perry Johnson: Honestly, we thought his candidacy was some kind of gag -- 'ya know, like Deez Nuts and Pat Paulson (Remember him?) and the Naked Cowboy. But it seems this guy's actually running, sorta. 1
Mike Pence: We've got a framed autographed photo of Mike Pence. We're hoping titwill be valuable one day but we're not holding our breath. Ya can't be Trump's veep and his nemesis at the same time, right Mike? 4
Vivek Ramaswamy: Young, handsome, hugely successful, smart, articulate, largely self-funded. By all accounts, he's an American success story. And, his stock seems to be soaring which means the media will soon start looking for reasons to crush him. But he's remarkably adept and seems authentic. 7
Tim Scott: The most compelling life story of the whole lot. Plus, he's hugely likable, very human, caring, eminently decent and eloquent. Pay attention to this guy. 6
Corey Stapelton: A former Montana Secretary of State. Really? Generously, 1
Francis Suarez: The mayor of Miami. Hey, look: Miami ain't Noo Yawk. In fact it ain't even Chicago or LA. It's saucy, sensuous fun but there's a way more substantial candidate from Florida running. Sorry, 1
Donald Trump: The Big Kahuna. The Elephant in the Room. The Ferocious Phenom. He'll remain a Yooge Presence whether he participates in the debate or not. Smith, Bragg and Willis notwithstanding, right now, for better or worse, it's all about This Guy. It's still in his hands. 8.5
