The fact that we are even having this debate is a sign of the surreal times we live in. It's also a glaring reminder that the Democratic majority in New Jersey has betrayed the principles that have had voters keep them in power for the past two decades.

As we approach the fall election on Nov. 8, there is a growing feeling that change is coming.

As I have been saying since the 2021 election, the change necessary to bring New Jersey back to normal starts at the local level.

Local elections matter. And local people are rising to the challenge.

Election 2020 South Carolina Primary

As we head into the new school year, more and more school boards are stepping up to challenge the outrageous, graphic, and inappropriate curriculum that sexualizes kids in grade school.

Warren and Watchung are the latest to join the dozens already fighting back on behalf of parents, teachers, and kids.

In Watchung, although the curriculum itself passed, thanks to the courage of one school board member, Amber Murad, the radicals were locked from including it in the social studies classes where parents would not even have the option of "opting out".

Amber is running for County Commissioner and is one of the best candidates I've met in New Jersey. Strong, confident, and capable. Exactly what we need in towns and counties throughout the state.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.

New Jersey's new legislative districts for the 2020s

Boundaries for the 40 legislative districts for the Senate and Assembly elections of 2023 through 2029, and perhaps 2031, were approved in a bipartisan vote of the Apportionment Commission on Feb. 18, 2022. The map continues to favor Democrats, though Republicans say it gives them a chance to win the majority.
