Deer Rutting Season


With the autumn white-tailed deer breeding season upon us, New Jersey officials are urging motorists to exercise caution on the state’s roadways.
Shorter days and cooler weather trigger the fall rutting season, dispersing deer as they search for mates, according to a state news release.
“Deer are involved in thousands of collisions with motor vehicles in New Jersey each year, with highest number occurring during the fall mating season,” Division of Fish and Wildlife Director Larry Herrighty said. “We strongly urge all motorists to be especially alert to the possibility of deer suddenly darting onto roadways and to be aware of some steps they can take to reduce the risk of serious injury to themselves or their passengers.”

The peak mating season for deer in New Jersey runs from late October, throughout November, and into mid-December in all regions of the state, beginning earliest in northern regions, the release states.
Deer activity is particularly amplified during dusk and dawn, corresponding with the daily work commute, according to the release.
AAA says there were 4,463 deer crashes in New Jersey during the 2016 season — or two deer crashes per hour. During that period, Monmouth recorded the highest of all counties with 568 crashes. 77% of the state’s crashes occurred during the evening rush hour.
Motorists are encouraged to alert the state’s Department of Transportation to any roadside dead deer by utilizing this website.


The following tips from the Department of Environmental Protection are offered to help motorists stay safe:
  • If you spot a deer, slow down and pay attention to possible sudden movement. If the deer doesn’t move, don’t go around it. Wait for the deer to pass and the road is clear.
  •  
  • Pay attention to “Deer Crossing” signs. Slow down when traveling through areas known to have a high concentration of deer so you will have ample time to stop if necessary.
  •  
  • If you are traveling after dark, use high beams when there is no oncoming traffic. High beams will be reflected by the eyes of deer on or near roads.
  •  
  • If you see one deer, be on guard: others may be in the area. Deer typically move in family groups at this time of year and cross roads single-file. Female deer are being chased by bucks and during breeding phase are often unaware of traffic.
  •  
  • Don’t tailgate. Remember: the driver in front of you might have to stop suddenly to avoid hitting a deer.
  •  
  • Always wear a seatbelt, as required by law. Drive at a safe and sensible speed, taking into account weather, available lighting, traffic, curves and other road conditions.
  •  
  • If a collision appears inevitable, do not swerve to avoid impact. The deer may counter-maneuver suddenly. Brake appropriately, but stay in your lane. Collisions are more likely to become fatal when a driver swerves to avoid a deer and instead collides with oncoming traffic or a fixed structure along the road. 
  •  
  • Report any deer-vehicle collision to a local law enforcement agency immediately.

Illegal Alien Births Cost US Taxpayers $ 2.4 Billion Yearly


Every year, American taxpayers are billed about $2.4 billion to pay for the births of illegal aliens, according to research by the Center for Immigration Studies Director of Research, Steven Camarotta.
The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor their illegal alien and noncitizen parents in the U.S. and eventually are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country through the process known as “chain migration.”

The research concludes that American taxpayers in total pay about $5.3 billion annually for the births of immigrants, whether they are legally or illegally in the U.S.
About one in four births that are paid for by American taxpayers are those to an immigrant, legal or illegal. This accounts for 429,000 immigrant births every year that taxpayers subsidize.
Illegal aliens births of anchor babies make up 11 percent — or about 198,000 births — of all births that are paid for by American taxpayers. Legal immigrant births make up 13 percent — or 231,000 births — of all births that are paid for by taxpayers.
As Breitbart News has extensively reported, there are 4.5 million anchor babies in the U.S. under the age of 18, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). This estimate does not include the potentially millions of anchor babies who are older than 18-years-old.
The 4.5 million anchor babies estimate exceeds the four million American children born every year. In the next decade, the CBO estimates that there will be at least another 600,000 anchor babies born in the U.S., which would put the anchor baby population on track to exceed annual American births — should the U.S. birth rate not increase — by more than one million anchor babies.

Cal. Illegal Voter Registrations with Motor Vehicle License


Excerpts
California’s ‘Motor Voter’ plan, which allow people to register to vote while they’re signing up for their driver’s license, has repeatedly been the source of consternation for those who care about the legitimacy of the vote.
 The failures of the DMV’s program lead the Secretary of State to demand a new investigation of the agency yesterday.

California’s ‘Motor Voter’ law first took effect in April, and was allegedly aimed at making it even easier for people to update their voting registration.
However, even according to the state’s leftist Secretary of State, the failures of the two agencies have undermined the public’s confidence in the basic ability of California to “collect and transmit accurate voter registration information.”
While the state seems to be suggesting that the failures are simple incompetence (and that their inability to catch issues without them being first brought forward by media outlets is also incompetence), not everyone seemed to agree.
Assemblyman Jim Patterson, a republican from Fresno, suggested that, to the contrary, the situation was the “unraveling of a cover-up.”

Patterson suggested that the 24,500 ‘erroneous’ registrations uncovered so far were not the entire story, but rather the “tip of the iceberg,” and seemed to believe that, rather than an accident, these votes were part of a conspiratorial scheme.
Republicans across the state, and even some democrats, had previously called for an audit into the program, and were rebuffed by leftists.

On the other hand, perhaps that was the intent all along; for democrats to add, through hook or crook, voters who would not otherwise be allowed to have a say in American democracy, and who would be very likely to cast their vote for the leftists who gave them ‘sanctuary?’
It seems difficult to fairly determine just how many ineligible people were added to the voter rolls when more than a million people registered with the program.
At this point, however, it’s clear that the program has been fraught with issues, and that those who questioned its usefulness were right to do so.

House & Senate Candidates Debate


Excerpts
 NJTV, the state’s public television broadcaster, is televising and live-streaming four House and Senate debates starting Wednesday,

With roughly a month until Election Day on Nov. 6, campaign signs are popping up in yards, money is fueling campaign commercial wars and candidates are making their closing pitches.
At the top of the ticket this year is the Senate race, in which Republican Bob Hugin is hoping to become the first GOP candidate in New Jersey to win election to the Senate since 1972. He faces Democratic incumbent Bob Menendez.
The debates come as the Oct. 16 voter registration deadline approaches.


SENATE
Menendez is seeking his third term and going against Hugin, a former executive at drugmaker Celgene. Polls show the race has tightened in blue New Jersey, where Democrats have a more than 900,000-voter-registration advantage over Republicans.

 The two candidates will meet in an Oct. 24 debate.
Hugin has attacked Menendez as corrupt, accusations stemming from a federal corruption indictment, which ended with charges being dropped after a mistrial. Menendez denied wrongdoing.
Menendez has cast Hugin as a surrogate for President Donald Trump, who’s unpopular in New Jersey, and as a greedy CEO. Hugin said his company has done life-saving working making cancer drugs.

Atlantic Prosecutor Accused of Mortgage Fraud & Hiding Evidence


Excerpts
Two former and one current employee of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office have accused prosecutor Damon G. Tyner of committing mortgage fraud, hiding evidence in the investigation of radio show host April Kauffman’s murder, and protecting friends and political allies from criminal prosecution.
The complaint, filed Oct. 4 by former assistant prosecutor Diane Ruberton, former Lieutenant Heather McManus and assistant prosecutor Donna Fetzer, asks the New Jersey Attorney General and U.S. Attorney to investigate Tyner.
“The matters alleged involved personnel issues with disgruntled former employees and current employee,” Tyner said in an email response. “As a result, I have retained legal counsel to respond to these matters. The great work of the women and men of the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office will continue unimpaired under my leadership.”

Levinson added that Tyner is a county employee, so legal fees he incurs will be paid for with county tax dollars.

NJ Bear Hunt


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The annual bear hunt in New Jersey begins Monday but is expected to be greatly reduced following an order by the governor barring black bear hunting on state-owned lands.
The six-day hunt starts just before sunrise. The first three days are reserved for bow hunting, while both hunting with bows and muzzle-loading guns will be allowed during the last three days.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy has said that New Jersey will pursue more nonlethal methods to manage the state's black bear population. His order removes from the hunt roughly 40 percent of the lands where bears were hunted over the past eight years.
Murphy said last year that he would seek to stop the hunt, but he later said he doesn't have the power to unilaterally call it off.

Crash Detection App


Imagine you're riding a bicycle when you collide with a car and are thrown over the handlebars.
When you hit the street, you're knocked unconscious and unable to call for help. In this scenario, you're wholly dependent upon a stranger coming to your rescue.
If you're in public, surrounded by people, that might not be a problem. But if you're injured when you're alone, hours could pass before you're found.
The makers of one app claim that their technology now includes a feature they refer to as "automatic crash detection and response." As of last week, Noonlight — an app designed to connect people with rescue services — began using an algorithm that taps into a smartphone's sensors, allowing the platform to measure and detect minuscule changes in the user's location, motion and force.
If the sensors detect a sudden change in motion and force indicating that the user has been involved in an accident, the app alerts 911 without the user's prompting.
The company will charge users about $10 a month for its crash-detection services.

Viral Facebook Hoax


Over the weekend, you might have seen a wave of panicked friends in your Facebook news feeds posting warnings: Their accounts were hacked, don’t accept friend requests from their accounts. Or maybe, even more alarming, you received a private message warning you that your account had been compromised.
The warning spread in the form of a message, sent from a friend or “friend.” The message claims that the sender received a suspicious friend request from you, and that the proper way to address this disturbing news is to immediately share the message they sent to you with all your friends.

It reads something like this:
“Hi....I actually got another friend request from you which I ignored so you may want to check your account. Hold your finger on the message until the forward button appears...then hit forward and all the people you want to forward too....I had to do the people individually. PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT A NEW friendship FROM ME AT THIS TIME.”
Should you be worried? Well, we have some good news and bad news. The good news is: Chances are, you were not hacked if you received this message, nor are you being impersonated on Facebook, and no fraudulent friend requests got sent. The whole thing is a viral hoax. The bad news is: People are falling for yet another copy/paste hoax on Facebook, a website with a long history of spreading them.

NJ 425 Million Film Tax Credit


Excerpts
Murphy, a first-year Democratic governor, and the Democrat-led Legislature approved the new tax credit program in July, renewing an incentive that Republican Chris Christie let expire.

The program has come under criticism since legislative estimates say it could cost up to $425 million over five years with an uncertain economic benefit to the state, whose budget is perennially strapped.
But Murphy brushed that criticism aside on Friday. He says the NBC program will mean 300 jobs and $50 million in goods in services purchased in the state.

 Unlike other tax incentives, the new law doesn't require a so-called net benefits test, meaning the credits do not necessarily have to lead to an overall financial positive for the state before they're awarded.

It also established a five-year tax credit program film and digital media production expenses incurred in New Jersey. No more than $75 million in tax credits can be granted for qualified film production expenses and no more than $10 million in credits for digital media content production expenses are allowed

NJ Gas Prices Rise


TRENTON — Gas prices are on the rise in New Jersey amid an oil price rally and the state's new 4.3-cent gas tax increase taking effect.
AAA Mid-Atlantic says the average price of a gallon of regular gas Friday in New Jersey was $2.90, up five cents from last week. Motorists were paying $2.55 for gas in New Jersey at this time last year.

The national average gas price Friday was $2.91 a gallon, up three cents from last week. The national average a year ago was $2.52 a gallon.
Analysts say motorists usually see prices drop this time of year as gasoline demand decreases and cheaper-to-produce winter blend gasoline is available — but this year gas prices feel more like summer than fall.

Brett Kavanaugh Confirmed as 114th Justice of the Supreme Court


Senate Vote 50 to 48


Judge Brett Kavanaugh was sworn in as the 114th Supreme Court justice late Saturday, just hours after the Senate voted to approve President Trump's nominee to the nation's highest court after a rancorous confirmation battle.
Kavanaugh was sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts in a private ceremony, accompanied by his wife and children. The ceremonial swearing in is expected to happen on Monday evening at the White House. It means that now-Justice Kavanaugh will begin hearing cases before the court on Tuesday.
