It’s unfortunate, but when you run a blog, every once in a while folks try to say something you posted is untrue. Fortunately, if something shows up on the internet, it’s there forever.

In this particular instance it was more of a case of a few people asking “are you sure it’s really him” after we posted a photo of newly elected Gloucester Township school board member Brian Reagan (allegedly) wearing blackface.

Well, we at The Bob & Steve Show did a little more digging, and, thanks to an old Facebook post we obtained, we’re pretty sure it’s really him. The picture received 11 likes.

Based on comments under the social media post it appears Reagan dressed up as Tiger Woods. Given the dates were October 30 and 31 he was likely dressed for a Halloween event back in 2010, 11 months after Tiger Woods crashed his car outside his Florida mansion.

Reagan supporters might argue 2010 is a little old, but these days things that happened in high school and college are fair game and based on Reagan’s age he had been out of high school and college for a long time in 2010.

So, was the picture posted on this blog really Gloucester Township’s newly elected school board member Brian Reagan. The evidence suggests yes, but take a look and decide for yourself or go to a school board meeting and ask.

New Jersey Gave Away $1.6 Million In Financial Aid Because Republicans Don’t know How To Fight

Money_413881.jpg

There has been a lot of talk and news coverage about New Jersey spending “$1.6 million to help send 513 undocumented immigrants to college during the fall 2018 semester.” According to NJ.com:

The college financial aid was handed out for the first time thanks to a new law signed by Gov. Phil Murphy that offers taxpayer-funded grants and scholarships to New Jersey "Dreamers" who are living in the country illegally.

Now, I could go on and on about how “Dreamers” are being rewarded for an illegal act performed by their parents, but why bother.

The real question is, how did we get here? And, the answer is, Republicans don’t know how to fight.

Nearly every story I’ve read on this issue uses the phrase “undocumented immigrants” or a couple of times I’ve seen “undocumented students.”

“Undocumented immigrant” is too nice a term, and Republicans just let it happen. The “Drop the I-Word “ campaign was launched in 2010 to advocate for the use of terms such as “undocumented immigrants” or “unauthorized immigrants” when referring to foreign nationals living in the United States illegally. Rather than pushback Republicans just let the liberals keep repeating the phrase “undocumented immigrant” until the Associated Press dropped “illegal immigrant” from its stylebook in 2013.

Rather than rolling over and playing dead Republicans should have just kept using the phrase “illegal alien.” And, every single time the liberal left pushed back Republicans could have simply reminded them “illegal alien” is a term used in many U.S. statutes, 2 USC 658, "8 USC 1252c, 8 USC 1330, 8 USC 1356, 8 USC 1365, and I could go on, but you get the idea.

And, let’s not forget that as recently as last summer the Justice Department “instructed US attorneys offices not to use the term "undocumented" immigrants and instead refer to someone illegally in the US as ‘an illegal alien.’” According to a CNN report:

The Justice Department has instructed US attorneys offices not to use the term "undocumented" immigrants and instead refer to someone illegally in the US as "an illegal alien," according to a copy of an agency-wide email obtained by CNN.

According to the email, the Justice Department uses terms in the US Code to describe an individual who is illegally in the US, and thus refers to them as "an illegal alien."

"The word 'undocumented' is not based in US code and should not be used to describe someone's illegal presence in the country," the email states.

Don’t be afraid to say “illegal alien.” It’s a term used in U.S. statutes, in other words, a term used in the law. “Undocumented” just sounds too nice, it paints an entirely different picture, it makes folks think the illegal alien one is referring to did nothing wrong, when they in fact did do something wrong.

Using the kind phrase “undocumented” and allowing others to use it is simply giving up before the argument even begins and gives the liberals running our state the opportunity to give away over $1 million to folks in the country illegally rather than help actual U.S. citizens.

Bottom line: Republicans better start fighting harder or we can all get prepared to give away millions more of our hard earned tax dollars.

PRESS RELEASE: NJGOP Launches Tool To Help NJ Voters Track Booker Out Of State Travel

Press Release.jpg

Want to know what’s going on with U.S. Senator Cory Booker’s Presidential campaign travel? Well, the NJGOP has launched a tool to help New Jersey voters track Senator Cory Booker's out of state, Presidential campaign travel. Following is NJGOP’s press release on the matter:

Trenton, NJ - The NJGOP has launched a tool to help New Jersey voters track Senator Cory Booker's out of state, Presidential campaign travel.

Updates on the locations he has visited outside of his duties as New Jersey's representative in the United Senate can be found at https://www.njgop.org/where-in-the-world-is-cory-booker/ and on Twitter by following the handle @NJGOP.

NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt offered the following comment on this effort:

"New Jersey is consistently last among every other state in what we get back from Washington versus what we send in. While there was no shortage of public outcry over Governor Christie’s state absences to run for president, there’s a double standard when it comes to Cory Booker. Meanwhile, New Jersey is left behind. We need federal representatives who will dig in and fight for New Jersey to get its fair share. 

"These days, it seems Cory Booker is more interested in being Hollywood's Senator than New Jersey's Senator.  Instead of spending his time trying to dig New Jersey out of the financial basement, he’s chasing national attention for himself. How does he expect to get the Gateway Tunnel done from South Carolina or California?

"We’ve created a tool to help voters understand just how underrepresented they are while Cory Booker runs for President. Half of his February schedule is already taken up by fundraisers in Beverly Hills and meetings in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. While he’s busy touring them, the rest of New Jersey is back here trailing the other 49 United States.”
