Senator Vin Gopal (D-11) submitted the following response to Tom DeSeno’s column criticizing his response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
By Senator Vin Gopal
I appreciate Tommy DeSeno more than he knows.
I know we disagree on a lot, but I firmly believe that if we hadn’t implemented aggressive social distancing measures over the past 2 months, we could have 80,000 deaths instead of the 10,000 horrific deaths that we’ve seen in New Jersey. That’s not my opinion: That’s according to every public health report–including the President’s.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: May 15th, 2020 | Author: admin | Filed under: COVID-19, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno, Vin Gopal | Tags: COVID-19, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno, Vin Gopal | 1 Comment »
Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs, 16:18

I thought the award for worst political reaction to Covid-19 was going to be Senator Vin Gopal’s support of a bill to put people in jail for a year who violate the lockdown order of our Governor, Prince Philip of Goldman Sachs. Proving my old contention that Democrats list toward Fascism when given power, it speaks little of Gopal that his response to someone looking for work to feed their family was to jail them.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: May 14th, 2020 | Author: admin | Filed under: COVID-19, Monmouth County News, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno, Vin Gopal | Tags: Monmouth County News, Opinion, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 1 Comment »
Murphy’s Reliance on a Fallible Medical Profession and COVID-19: School Graduation Edition –DeSeno
They answered, as they took their fees, ‘There is no cure for this disease.’ Hilaire Belloc, 1870-1953

This is not to dethrone doctors from their rightful lofty place in society; it is to dethrone them from an even higher place, so high that they don’t deserve it. They don’t deserve to be seen as infallible, nor do they deserve the power to usurp the decision making of the people’s representatives in government when it comes to public policy. In particular, referring to the public policy of not allowing live graduation ceremonies.
Medicine is an inexact science. That is why it is regularly referred to as “medical arts.” While biology is a pure science, virology in particular is the applied science that makes use of the biologist’s library of accumulated knowledge.Read the rest of this entry » Posted: May 12th, 2020 | Author: Art Gallagher | Filed under: COVID-19, New Jersey, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: COVID-19, High school graduations, New Jersey, Opinion, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | Comments Off on Murphy’s Reliance on a Fallible Medical Profession and COVID-19: School Graduation Edition –DeSeno

Former Governor Jim McGreevey once held the heavyweight championship belt for passing the silliest New Jersey law in history.
McGreevey once signed a law so silly you’ll laugh while reading it: His law said no gun can be sold in New Jersey unless the gun itself can recognize its owner and refuse to fire unless the owner is holding it. The law also said it wouldn’t take effect until someone invented a jealous gun possessing a sentient, conscious personality that could do that.
So, your New Jersey legislature and governor wasted your time and your money to pass a law no one can use. Silly.

The job of a county party chair is to ensure that candidates have no unforced errors, usually handled in the vetting process. Democrat Chairman David Brown’s candidates this year have self-inflicted wounds. He has dumped support for several of his own candidates, a sign of his own failure. The Monmouth Democrat Party needs to strip him of his chairmanship for this collapse.
By the way – the correct pronunciation for “The Monmouth Democrat Party” is “Vin Gopal.” That’s who needs to dump Brown.
Let’s look at how David Brown treated two women very differently for their words about cops.
Jeana Sager is a Democrat candidate for the Township Council in Middletown. I’m not here to articulate her true feelings about cops because I don’t know them. I don’t know them because David Brown sewed her mouth shut like a character on “A Handmaid’s Tale” before she could explain.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2019 elections, Monmouth County, Monmouth County News, Monmouth Democrats, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: 2019 elections, Dave Brown, Jeana Sager, Moira Nelson, Monmouth Democrats, Opinion, Thomas DeSeno, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 6 Comments »

This column will mention Asbury Park Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn as well as her friends. Nothing is their fault. There’s just no way to tell the story without them.
This past August, Asbury Park started allowing motorized scooters here. Deputy Mayor Quinn led the effort.
Quinn, the darling of local Democrats, selected a company called Spin for the scooters. Spin appears to be an eco-friendly San Francisco start-up that fits well with Asbury’s woke progressives who hate oil companies and long for Congresswoman AOC’s Green New Delusion. The reality? Spin is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. Big Industry. Big oil. The transportation equivalent of a Red Lobster on the Boardwalk.
Amy Quinn really, really wants her pet project to do well. Apparently, so does the Asbury Park Press.admin | Filed under: Monmouth County News, New Jersey, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: Amy Quinn, Asbury Park, Ford Motor Company, Monmouth County News, Motorized Scooters, Opinion, Spin, Thomas DeSeno, Tom DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 11 Comments »

Hello Governor! I noticed your latest bout of uncontrollable virtue signaling (you should see someone about that). You have removed the state flag of Mississippi from New Jersey’s display of all 50 49 state flags at Liberty State Park. You are predictably triggered because Mississippi’s flag bears the Second Confederate Navy Jack in the upper flagstaff canton.
So, you oppose secession of the southern states? Virtue signal received, Governor. I suspect we all knew that without rekindling the civil war or vacating amnesty given to southern soldiers.admin | Filed under: New Jersey, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: Governor Phil Murphy, Liberty State Park, MAGA hat, Mississippi State Flag, New Jersey, New Jersey State Flag, Opinion, Thomas DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | 3 Comments »

Despite Article 6, Clause 3 of the Constitution outlawing religious tests for public office, Democrats have been inquiring about the religious beliefs of government appointees.
This modern Democrat “Star Chamber” has revealed itself in several recent incidents.
Senator Dianne Feinstein (D., California) told Catholic federal court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern…”.
Then came the double teaming of federal Court nominee Brian Buesher by Senators Kamala Harris (D., California) and Mazie Hirono (D., Hawaii). They questioned Buesher about various Catholic beliefs, followed by Hirono requesting he quit the Catholic fraternity Knights of Columbus before being sworn; a clear violation of his Constitutional rights. Harris and Hirono were formally rebuked by the entire Senate for this religious inquisition.admin | Filed under: 2020 Presidential Politics, Cory Booker, Opinion, Tommy DeSeno | Tags: 2020 Presidential Politics, Cory Booker, Cory2020, LGBTQ, Opinion, Sin, Thomas DeSeno, Tommy DeSeno | Comments Off on Cory Booker Owes the LGBTQ Community an Answer about Sin
