Conservative Picks for the New Jersey Primary

Published

on

New Jersey was just as bad as one would think. They do not send a single Conservative to Congress. You’d think Conservatism would have made advances under a Republican governor, but, alas, Chris Christie was too busy making advances on the Golden Corral. That being said, there’s nowhere to go but up.

Best Picks: Brian Goldberg, Steve Lonegan, Raafat Barsoom
Worst Picks: Lindsay Brown, Leonard Lance, Martin Hewitt
Best Race: District 5, US Senate
Worst Race: District 7

US Senate

Looking to take Bob Menendez’s seat are two Republicans, Brian Goldberg and Bob Hugin. This race isn’t getting a whole lot of attention among Conservatives, and perhaps because Menendez is a heavy favorite. Still this race is a classic Conservative vs Establishment showdown. Bob Hugin isn’t even running as a Conservative. He isn’t even running as fiscally responsible. By his own campaign platform, he seems like the candidate that would seek crony policies for his backers.

There’s nothing on Hugin’s website to dispute Goldberg’s claims. Hugins is running a campaign that gives in to the Democrats. What’s the point in voting for him? Goldberg is running to the right and is strong on life and Supreme Court appointments, a Senator’s function as opposed to creating jobs.

Conservative Pick: Brian Goldberg

District 1

Paul Dilks is the only Republican in this race.

District 2

Four Republicans are running. The strongest of which seems to be Hirsh Singh. After failing to win last years primary for governor, Singh is back for District 2. His website doesn’t list his platform, but his Twitter is full of Ted Cruz retweets. When running for governor, he emphasized school choice and also supported marijuana legalization. He’s strong on guns. He also seems to have all the endorsements signifficant or otherwise. In 2013, Seth Grossman, primaried Chris Christie. Of course he failed, but he seemed to campaign on genuine local issues. Now, he’s campaigning on Trump, immigration, Obamacare, and something about self defense but not the 2nd Amendment. There’s no indication he would cut spending. Next is Sam Fiocchi. He was a former legislator voted out. Fiocchi also has an emphasis on Obamacare repeal. He’s a step up from Grossman but still no emphasis on spending cuts.

Conservative Pick: Hirsh Singh

District 3

Tom MacArthur is a major RINO. He is unchallenged.

District 4

RINO Chris Smith is unopposed.

District 5

This is a winnable House seat for Republicans seeing that Trump won the district. After failing against Tom MacArthur, Steve Lonegan is back in District 3 this time to be the lone NJ Conservative in Congress. He has the backing of major Conservatives such as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Mark Levin, and Tea Party affiliates. Opposing him is John McCann who is campaigning on how he brownnosed Trump during in 2016 when Lonegan was a Cruz supporter. We’ve seen how Conservative Trump sycophants fail to be.

Conservative Pick: Steve Lonegan

District 6

Rich Pezzullo is unopposed.

District 7

New Jersey is so blue even a staunch leftist is running as a Republican to oust RINO Leonard Lance. Her name is Lindsay Brown. She supports single payer healthcare. The last hope in the District is Raafat Barsoom. Barsoom has an interesting perspective as a Christian born in Egypt. He is a Conservative and the only good option.

Conservative Pick: Raafat Barsoom

District 8

John Muniz is running unopposed.

District 9

Eric Fisher is running unopposed.

District 10

Agna Khan is running unopposed.

District 11

Democrats are going to want this vacated red seat. Four Republicans are running. Martin Hewitt is a clear RINO. Jay Webber is skilled campaigner. Furthermore he has an decent record in the NJ General Assembly. He’s the frontrunner if there is one and has the best chance at holding the District.

Conservative Pick: Jay Webber

District 12

Daryl Kipnis is unopposed.

Honduran caravan is a direct result of Democrat talking points

Honduran caravan is a direct result of Democrat talking points

In Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, the message from America is clear: “Around half of the population and politicians will protect you from ICE. Come to America and you won’t get deported, especially if you have children with you.”

The reason they believe this is because mainstream media in the United States has been pushing the Democrats’ narrative for months. News travels fast to Central America, but it doesn’t always retain its accuracy as it crosses the border. We can see this fact in the numbers.

In August of this year, 12,700 parents and children were apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border. August of last year saw only 4,193 similar apprehensions. We can also see it when looking at all illegal immigrants with 37,544 apprehended in August of this year. A month later, the number grew over 10% to nearly 42,000.

Democrats have been spreading the word through their campaigns that they will protect illegal immigrants. In an election year, it’s imperative for them that they get Hispanic voters to come out, so they’ve crafted a narrative that appeals to them.

Unfortunately, it also appeals to people such as the 4,000 currently marching their caravan towards the United States border.

Honduran migrant caravan grows to 4,000 amid spike in U.S. border crossings

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/immigration/honduran-migrant-caravan-grows-4000-amid-spike-u-s-border-n921286Shelters and churches along the border have been flooded as a result of the surge as U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have been releasing hundreds of migrants from detention at a time.

Many of the Hondurans traveling in the caravan are children, some traveling with their parents and some without their parents, according to the documents. Because children are afforded special protections in the U.S., their arrival is creating anxiety within the Trump administration that has pledged to decrease illegal immigration. President Donald Trump said last week that he would consider separating migrant families at the border once again, after reversing his controversial “zero tolerance” policy in June.

The Trump administration is trying to dissuade the caravan from invading the United States. President Trump has even threatened to stop aid from being sent to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

The best hope for stopping the caravan before it reaches the United States is for Mexico to stop them at their southern border. Over 500 additional federal officers have been sent to the border to stop the caravan.

My Take

I am a huge proponent of legal immigration and a hawk when it comes to stopping illegal immigration. Congress didn’t fund the border wall yet, so we have to rely on the brave men and women of ICE and border patrol to close the flood gates.

The situations in Central America and Mexico are horrendous. The people fear for their lives from crime, malnutrition, and disease. They need help. That’s why we’re sending aid. Perhaps we should get more directly involved, but either way we cannot let their situation make us turn a blind eye towards our own problems with illegal immigration.

The surge in illegal immigration should be blamed wholeheartedly on the Democrats who spread false information that entices people to come. Imagine what would happen if they got control of the House, Senate, or both.

So-called conservative media types are accomplices in the destruction of conservatism

So-called conservative media types are accomplices in the destruction of conservatism

It’s an obvious fact that the GOP is composed of political cowards and opportunists willing to make a Faustian Bargain with the devil himself, if it garners them a vote or a financial contribution to save their jobs.

Their spinelessness and lack of character is the primary reason Obama repeatedly beat GOP leadership, and it’s the motivation behind the surrender by Republicans and conservatives to Trump as he rebrands them into Trumplicans and Trumpservatives to destroy conservatism.

Meanwhile, as Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan abandon conservatism in favor of Trump’s nationalist populism, the so-called conservative media has served as a willing accomplice in the destruction of conservative values, providing cover for the NY Liberal whenever he needs a distraction to hide his failures.

So far this week, thanks to so-called conservative media types like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Mark Levin, et al., we know that:

Not exactly front page news, unless you’re talking about FOX, Breitbart, National Enquirer, or some other tabloid. Lost in all of the hubbub of these stories were a few headlines that apparently weren’t newsworthy enough for Trump Pravda.

For example, the Treasury Department announced this week that the US budget deficit climbed to $779 billion, the largest deficit since 2012. This is an increase from last year’s $666 billion shortfall, and next year’s deficit is expected to reach nearly $1 trillion. Not to worry, though. Mitch McConnell called the exploding deficit “very disturbing” before assuring voters that “it’s not a Republican problem.”

Let’s see. GOP control of Washington since 2016, but it’s not the GOP’s fault. Got it!

Another recent news headline is the disappearance and probable murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia. Once again, we have nothing to worry about. Trump is leading the way in defending the nation where he is financially entangled by comparing allegations against the Saudis to the sexual-assault allegations made against Brett Kavanaugh.

Here’s a little tidbit that didn’t make the headlines, but it should have. Planned Parenthood murdered approximately 887 unborn babies yesterday — their daily average — at taxpayer expense, thanks to the funding provided in the budget that Mitch McConnell says Trump and the GOP aren’t responsible for.

In the meantime, so-called conservative media will continue covering the REAL news, such as Trump’s recent Twitter rant, while conservatism in America is systematically destroyed.

Priorities, right?

If Keith Ellison wins his election, #MeToo has officially jumped the shark

If Keith Ellison wins his election MeToo has officially jumped the shark

Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) should be a prime target for the #MeToo movement. He’s a powerful man who allegedly abused his ex-girlfriend. She has corroboration and evidence to back her claims. She’s a fellow Democrat, so she’s not a political plant by his opposition. She’s a woman with a story of abuse that, by #MeToo movement standards, should be believed.

The problem is Ellison is a powerful Democrat, a Muslim, a minority, and is in the middle of a tight election. Therefore, he’s protected from the people who would have sunk Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation despite no evidence or corroboration.

The hypocrisy of it all is stunning. The message being sent by the #MeToo movement based on their unwillingness to confront Ellison and call for his removal from offices, current and future, is that women are to be believed if they’re accusing the right people. Keith Ellison isn’t the right person. He’s an ally to the #MeToo movement because he’s a Democrat, a Muslim, a minority, and someone who’s in the middle of an important election in Minnesota.

Despite the #MeToo movement looking away, it seems that voters in Minnesota are starting to look closer.

Domestic abuse charges diminishing Ellison’s lead

https://onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2018/10/16/domestic-abuse-charges-diminishing-ellisons-leadRep. Keith Ellison’s (D-Minn.) lead in the polls – to become Minnesota’s newest attorney general in the midterm elections – has continued to vanish after his ex-girlfriend’s domestic abuse allegations.

Before the Karen Monahan’s charges were made public, the Democratic Muslim candidate was believed to be a shoe-in in the contest to become the deep-blue state’s top cop, but since then, polls show that his once long-shot Republican competitor, Doug Wardlow, has closed in on him – big time.

Misogyny and abuse of power are real problems in America. This is why the initial iteration of the #MeToo movement was so powerful. It worked. That cannot be denied. But what it has become is a shadow of its original self.

The highest ranking law enforcement official n the state of Minnesota may be a many accused by his ex-girlfriend of physical and mental abuse. Unfortunately, #MeToo doesn’t believe her.

#MeToo will only go after people like Keith Ellison if there’s incontrovertible evidence against them. They’ll go after Brett Kavanaugh no matter what. #MeToo is not the women’s empowerment movement they claim to be. It’s a political activist front.
