Ridgewood JOLT Now Working to Subvert Democracy?

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

Ridgewood NJ, strange goings on at Ridgewood JOLT, the organization that claims :

Ridgewood JOLT is a community organization activating citizens to JOIN ORGANIZE LEAD and TEACH. Our mission is to protect and fight for our democracy through active participation in upcoming elections, monitoring and acting on legislative activity, educating ourselves and others as to our rights and our laws, and using the power of our purse to affect change and require accountability from corporations dependent on our economic participation.

Yet three of its members are in full agreement in attempts to “filter” and censor a group of ‘known agitators” clearly subverting the cause of democracy that thrives off of vigorous debate and goes gainst its stated mission.

Jennifer Flowers

By Elliot Smilowitz

Donald Trump on Saturday threatened to bring a woman that Bill Clinton had an extramarital affair with when he debates Hillary Clinton Monday.

“If dopey Mark Cuban of failed Benefactor fame wants to sit in the front row, perhaps I will put Jennifer Flowers [sic] right alongside of him!” Trump initially tweeted.

Shortly after, Trump deleted the tweet and reposted it with the correct spelling of Flowers’s first name.

Donald Trump Still in the Lead After Debates: New NBC News/Survey Monkey Poll

07trump-master675 (1)


If Donald Trump’s comments about Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly are hurting his standing in the Republican primary, it’s not showing in the numbers.

According to the latest NBC News Online Poll conducted by SurveyMonkey, Trump is at the top of the list of GOP candidates that Republican primary voters would cast a ballot for if the primary were being held right now.

The overnight poll was conducted for 24 hours from Friday evening into Saturday. During that period, Donald Trump stayed in the headlines due to his negative comments about Kelly and was dis-invited from a major conservative gathering in Atlanta.

None of that stopped Trump from coming in at the top of the poll with 23 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz was next on the list with 13 percent.
