Incoming N.J. governor plans a swing
to the left — and a model for the country

Washington Post, by David Weigel

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/15/2018 1:49:49 PM

TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy

Comments:
At least he´s honest. Higher taxes, hordes of illegal immigrants, vote early/vote often, and lots of new regulations.

I am glad I saw this. I just got contacted by a recruiter for a job in NJ that looked interesting. The new governor just marked up the price for working in NJ quite a bit.

So, around 2022, well into Trump´s second term, New Jersey will come to D.C., hat in hand, ready to kiss the butts of the Republican majority to bail out their s***hole state. We should all write our legislators to get ready to tell them "not only no, but hell, no!"

I don´t want to see any moving vans from New Jersey in my neighborhood. They voted for this, so they ought to get it, good and hard, with no possibility of relief.

So NJ is going to try a tax work around that will be found illegal by SCOTUS, and pass a millionaires´ tax which will send the super rich elsewhere, raise the minimum wage, so many jobs will be lost and small businesses will close (or never open). NJ has no Hollywood or Silicon Valley to pump national/international dollars into the economy and it sure doesn´t have California´s great weather. I think this guy is just nuts.

Oh it´s going to be a proving ground for liberal policies alright. This has happened before. In 1961 Detroit was the most prosperous city in the country. Then liberal Jerome Cavanagh got elected mayor of Detroit and announced he would show the world the wonders of liberalism using LBJ´s model cities program. He succeeded. He showed how liberalism could take the country´s most prosperous city and turn it into a smoldering ash heap. New Jersey is doomed.

A beautiful state I was born in ruined by its government.

Much talk among remaining Republicans that Kim Guadagno was in on the deal to hand it over to Murphy. She was a lazy campaigner throughout and hardly visible from the primary to September. The "deal" was legalization of marijuana and 1) tax revenue plus 2) corruption of the people, which as L.dotters know is a major Soros initiative. I don´t have proof, but that is the talk.

FYI, she and her minions went up to Joe Piscopo´s house in NJ before the primary to talk him out of running. (He´s a big local radio personality as well as a singer/actor.) Being a Belleville boy, Joe knew he was being sent a message for his health. You could read between the lines when he referred to it. And while a conservative, so far he has not been critical of Murphy.

1. It´s getting late: The recovery from the Great Recession is already one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And recently the economic cycle has gone from humming along to booming. Unemployment is down to a 17-year low, small business sentiment is roaring, and economic growth hit the 3% mark twice last year. But economic expansions don´t last forever. A recession comes along eventually and ruins the party. Wall Street is already pondering the demise of this recovery, which in May would become the second-longest in history. Most economists and investors believe the U.S. economy is either in

Pyeongchang - The moment, when it happened, felt routine to American slopestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who along with figure skater Adam Rippon is the only openly gay male Winter Olympian to ever compete for the United States. Matthew Wilkas, Kenworthy’s boyfriend, gave Kenworthy a good-luck kiss before a qualifying run on Sunday in South Korea. “That was like a peck,” Wilkas, who wore a “USGay” t-shirt to the event, tells TIME afterwards from the bottom of the slopestyle course at the Phoenix Snow Park. “We should have made out in front of people.” Kenworthy didn’t know the TV cameras caught

(Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump.

WASHINGTON – It turns out Donald Trump wasn’t the only candidate the Russians allegedly tried to help during the 2016 presidential campaign. A 37-page indictment resulting from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation shows that Russian nationals and businesses also worked to boost the campaigns of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Green party nominee Jill Stein in an effort to damage Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Russians “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump,” according to the

It seems that the openly gay U.S. figure skater Adam Rippon is not the only one openly trolling the VP as he represents the United States at the Olympics. On Twitter, Gus Kenworthy expressed joy over breaking his thumb because of one "silver lining.""Broke my thumb yesterday in practice," he tweeted. "It won´t stop me from competing (obvi) but it does prevent me

Reporter-model Becky Griffin took to Twitter on Thursday and responded to Wednesday’s mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida by insinuating that alleged shooter Nikolas Cruz wouldn’t have carried out mass murder if his mother had aborted him instead of putting him up for adoption. “Woman puts baby up for adoption, he grows up to be a violent young man who will spend the rest of his life in prison for a mass murder. Tell me more about how abortions are wrong,” Griffin wrote, in a tweet that went viral on Thursday, adding the hashtags

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold. (Snip) But then Vonn went on NBC and complained about it herself. She transformed from a sympathetic figure to a poor loser in a

NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

San Salvador - Last week, President Trump torpedoed an immigration deal put forward by a bipartisan group of senators. The Senate responded by rejecting his own, harsher plan. By the end of the week, the immigration debate seemed deadlocked between the fate of the Dreamers and the fate of the wall. But one thing is clear: Any plan that purports to make America safer by making it harder for immigrants to obtain legal status and increasing deportations will actually do the opposite. These proposals, embraced by Mr. Trump, are the same decades-old policies that helped transform Mr. Trump’s archenemy, Mara Salvatrucha

When I was in art school, studying pretentious subjects alongside pretentious students taught by pretentious professors, we had the privilege of learning about basic forms of visual expression, expressed at their highest levels. (snip) The recently unveiled Obama portraits are of a type that I have seen many times in my career as an artist and art historian. The poses are wooden, the compositions hackneyed, and both subjects have obviously been copied from photographs. To make up for the technical weakness of the painting´s execution, the artist relies on gimmicks to drag their image over the finish line, hoping that

Mitt Romney said Friday that the nation must act swiftly to address the scourge of gun violence, stating that he was open to tougher measures like "enhanced background checks" if they would help keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. "What happened is unthinkable and unimaginable," he said after offering prayers for the victims of the Florida shooting. "We must take action to prevent tragedies like this from happening again." Speaking at a fundraising dinner held by Utah County Republicans in his first official appearance as a U.S. Senate candidate, Romney said he hoped to see the state generate
