Ridgewood NJ, since Ridgewood has had a spat of these incidents during the past council election and since so many in the Village now pride them self on being so openminded the NJ Conservative GOP has joined the New Jersey Coalition of Pastors and Ministers in calling for the firing of Governor Murphy Staffer Noemi Velazquez, for her anti-Evangelical remarks. Noemi Velazquez referred to Republican policymakers in Washington as “Evangelical assholes!”

Reader says Saudinio was a “greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist “


For Saudinio, as a prominant Caucasian, to be as comfortable as he is in singling out and speaking down to, quote-unquote, “the blacks”. For Saudino to allow the natural independence afforded by his unique pre-constituional office to lead his tongue publicly to suggest that the new AG’s minority religion and concomitant garb (the turban) are the reasons he was elevated to that office by the new Governor. For Saudino to go further and give himself license to take a cheap shot another’s moral shortcomings (another officeholder’s apparent problems with same-sex attraction). These all mark Saudino as a self-satisfied majoritarian jerk. Saudino has already proudly shown himself to be without any identifiable political principles by switching midstream to the Democrat party, which, as everyone knows, only really cares about one thing–political power. Finally, his attention to self-interest is unsurpassed among state officeholders in New Jersey. NOTHING was going to interrupt the master bed-feathering class Saudino’s been teaching lo these many years.
What a greedy, bigoted, snobby, self-styled elitist this guy is–right at home, one might add, with his new friends. Let it be said without fear of contradiction: “Saudino and the Democrats: Perfect Together.”

News 12 New Jersey reporter spoofed by a fake tweet of President Trump

News 12 fake tweet

February 7,2018

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, you may have noticed yesterday that News 12 New Jersey was spoofed by a fake tweet of President Trump . When challenged by the lack of skepticism and fact checking ‘reporter” Kurt Siegelin responded on Facebook to our query by attempting to justify his biased faux pas , “Have you read some of the President’s tweets? It’s not hard to believe he actually would have tweeted something like a couple years ago.”

We countered “Ever watched 12 news? Biased much ??” , after all it was News 12 that called Ridgewood a town of bigots because so many were skeptical of Aronsohn’s stupid make work ADA ramp at Graydon pool when far better alternatives existed . The doubters were proved correct when the fiasco ran well over budget and is basically unusable because it gets slippery when wet (duh) . The far better alternative the “mobi chair” used at Allendale’s pool was passed on because it did not cost enough .

Kurt Siegelin ended the conversation, ” Dude, whatever. I can only tell you people here are earnest in trying to present unfiltered truth. If you don’t believe it, I can’t help you.” Translation News 12 New Jersey will remain smug and content in its biased , ignorant and bigoted point of view .

A post from Kurt Siegelin(FACEBOOK)

“A few words (maybe more than a few) about this fake tweet…

I saw this on my timeline this morning and immediately thought ‘Man, he’s going to have to explain this!’ And then? Then I read a little more and find out President Trump never tweeted this. It’s Photoshop, or whatever-fakes-a-tweet-shop. Never happened. The guy responsible even admits he did it as a joke and he realizes it’s going around twitter, Facebook and the internet LIKE IT DID HAPPEN and he’s sorry for that. Oopsie. Buddy, in short, too late. This fake tweet is now being shared and re-shared like it DID happen by anyone who hates the President and would like to further undermine him. People are seeing this and believing it did happen.

So what can you believe anymore? If some yahoo on twitter can create something which looks so authentic, is anything legit? Is anything not fake-able? And how do you know? Honestly, I don’t have an answer for that. And really, I don’t blame this idiot. People do stupid stuff. They aren’t “journalists”, trying to be careful with the truth in every post. No, they’re just looking for some shares. And this guy is having his moment. As of this writing, this fake tweet has over 27,000 retweets and 59,000 likes. The likes? They could be people who like the sentiment, hate Trump, whatever. It’s the retweets which are the concern. That’s the virus spreading. Leading to more people actually believing a lie. My question, how many who saw this know it’s fake? You’d have to do some clicking to see the author’s contrition — which people typically don’t do — so yeah, this is out there tonight and I think people believe it. But again, I don’t blame this guy. He was just looking for a reaction.

I actually blame Facebook and twitter for allowing this be disseminated. Both have made some very public statements in the last months about trying to stop fake news from being spread on their sites. They claim to now actively censor material. I haven’t seen that in action, but I guess this one got past both their censors. Hey twitter and Facebook! You know what? Do more. And do it better. The people who run these social media platforms need to realize they are the new newspapers. They are what America reads. They shape what America thinks. Any self-respecting newspaper editor of the past 100 years would never have printed this fake tweet, so why are Facebook and twitter allowed to? There’s no oversight. No ethical standard they’re trying to adhere to (at least none I know of). So understand, always, reader beware. Be suspicious of it all. In the meantime, I’d like to give twitter and Facebook execs a lecture on journalism. They could use a good talking-to right now.”

Garrett Challenger Josh Gottheimer Now Facing his Own “Gay dilemma”

Josh Gottheimer

Ridgewood NJ, Congressmen Scott Garrett has faced a Democrat led faux protest regarding alleged comments he made a year ago about his refusal to pay dues supporting the House’s fundraising campaign because it supports gay candidates.

Faux protest photo ops have been launched usually led by NJ Assemblyman Tim Eustace who clearly has far to much time on his hands.All the while Garrett challenger carpetbagger Josh Gottheimer has been taking money for disgraced former congressmen Bob “the torch” Torricelli and Saudi Arabian wife beaters.

But now Gottheimer has his own “Gay dilemma” , it seems in an internal DNC memo published by WikiLeaks, one party staffer complained in bigoted derogatory stereotypical fashion to colleagues that one of the party’s gay donors was just too high maintenance for her to handle.

The leaked memo, which is titled “Close out memo” and dated April 22, 2016, was authored by DNC staffer Julia Lahl, who recaps much of the work done with the party’s LGBT Leadership Council. The memo contains information on dozens of donors , much of which is not positive.

Lahl goes on to complain that one donor, named as Darrin Glymph, is “extremely high maintenance.” Glymph was one of three hosts for a May 2015 fundraiser in Washington, D.C. that was “wildly successful” “in terms of identifying “black gay men” that are interested in getting involved. However the [three] hosts that filled the room incredibly for this event were extremely hard to wrangle for the actual gala,” Lahl wrote.

“Darrin would like to become more involved but he is hard to get in touch with and is extremely high maintenance,” Lahl went on to complain. “I found him to be too much work for what he is worth (maybe a 5k check).
