GUEST OPINION: "Europe Is Getting Tough on Big Tech. When Will the US Do the Same?"

By Jason Boyce In March, the European Union (EU) took a significant step toward reining in Big Tech offenders with the Digital Markets Act. Targeting the gatekeepers of today’s digital economy, the law is a historic piece of legislation and is a critical next step in the broader fight to level the playing field. However, this watershed moment has failed to reach the US, which continues to fall short in protecting consumers and innovative small businesses from predatory tech companies. Congress must stop playing catch up with Europe and take a leadership role to protect its constituents. Courage and cooperation... Read more →


Letters to the Editor: The Left Is Deranged Over Roe v Wade Being Overturned

Statement: The KAIROS Company for Dr. James Dobson May 10, 2022 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR "Recently, the Left has become increasingly deranged over the potential of Roe v. Wade being overturned. From riotous mobs outside the homes of Supreme Court justices to pro-abortion activists defacing churches across the country in violation of federal law, to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) attempting to push through legislation codifying abortion on demand, the Left is showing their true colors. And they are as hideous as it gets."For the first time in three generations, the Court is poised to restore the right of... Read more →


THE STORY BEHIND THE STORY: Help for Unemployment Claims

Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews TRENTON, NJ (April 27, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--In New Jersey the Democrats and Republicans are actually working together on the unemployment problem. They might as well hold up signs reading "election year, our friends and we want your vote." Many State Senators have formed a new committee to investigate the Department of Labor have said the same things. The residents they represent, every single one, complained that they never got through on the phone and no one ever called them back. They heard everyday "There is no one [at the Dept of Labor] to talk to. After weeks of... Read more →


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Fight Back Against Big Tech

A few weeks ago I sent around an email advocating for our parents and condemning the NJEA and other radical agenda-driven groups for actively encouraging our children to question their gender. The idea that the LGBTQ+ political radicals are sexualizing our education system and preying on the minds of grade schoolers is outrageous and unacceptable. LIke you, I was just standing up for American parents. Well, just a few hours after sending out that email, Google “mysteriously” blocked my account. See for yourself: FIGHT BACK AGAINST CENSORSHIP Big Tech is trying to cancel us through active censorship. There’s no other... Read more →


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: The Woke Left Trying To Corrupt And Confuse Your Children

Have you seen the latest attempt by the Woke Left to corrupt and confuse your children? During a Disney staff meeting, executive producer for Disney Television Animation Latoya Raveneau touted Disney’s efforts to feature LGBTQ storylines. She revealed that she was just “adding queerness” wherever she could, stating that “No one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me.” This shows that Disney is complicit with the transgender cult being forced on school children by our government in Trenton and in the White House. It’s the worst kind of political bullying and it’s harming our kids. It... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Jon Stewart's Phony Tirade About Racism

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on Jon Stewart's remarks about racism on his Apple TV + show: It seems everything about Jon Stewart is phony. His real name is Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz. He rails against "white privilege" yet he enjoys a net worth of at least $25 million. He hates white people who make racist comments about black people yet he is known to make racist cracks about blacks. He proclaims tolerance for everyone yet his serial hate speech directed at Catholics proves otherwise. Now he is libeling Andrew Sullivan, suggesting that the writer... Read more →


New Law Would Grant a Property Tax Rebate for NJ Residents with a Military Service Connected Disability

TRENTON, NJ--(March 16, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--Since 1899 the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Disabled American Veterans have advocated in Washington D.C and State Capitals to ensure the government’s obligation to care for those injured during war and to provide for the families of those who perished on the battlefield is honored and never forgotten. Today the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Disabled American Veterans are proud to announce the introduction of A-3604 and S-2285 which will grant a property tax rebate all veterans with a military service-connected disability based on their U.S. Veterans Administration rating.

Letters to the Editor: The Left is Lying to You

Dear Fellow Patriot, A slew of Western businesses have exited the Russian economy since the invasion of Ukraine, citing "humanitarian reasons" yet continue to remain silent about the genocide happening in China. Visa and Mastercard are among the list of corporations who have suspended operations in Russia over the invasion of Ukraine. Visa stated the suspension is "effective immediately" citing the "unacceptable events" that have been witnessed. Additionally, Mastercard announced their decision to suspend services on Twitter noting the "unprecedented nature of the current conflict." As a result of Visa and Mastercard cutting ties with Russia, many Russian banks announced... Read more →


Father Joseph D. Wallace: Let one Church unite Ukraine, Russia 

Let one Church unite Ukraine, Russia By Father Joseph D. Wallace - March 3, 2022 The world is shocked and dismayed over the wonton and unprovoked military incursion by Russia into the sovereign and independent country of Ukraine. Religious and political leaders from throughout the world condemned the invasion. Pope Francis, in an unprecedented move, went so far as to go to the Russian embassy in Rome, as a Vatican spokesman described, “to convey his concern for the war.” On the surface, this statement may seem somewhat perfunctory, but it really belies the Russian myth that this is not a...

GUEST OPINION: Let's Do Some "Trash Talkin"

updated By Robert S. Bevan photo credit R. S. B. GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (March 3, 2022)(CNBNewsnet)--Drive through our community on recycling day. Paper, cardboard, and plastic bottles litter the gutters! 75% of all properties on the west side of Gloucester are rentals and are owned by out-of-town landlords. It’s a “Big Business”! The council should consider a law that landlords provide 50-gallon containers with attached lids for trash and recyclable items. This should be made mandatory in order to get a C of O (Certificate of Occupancy) to occupy these properties. Homeowners in town should consider getting these larger containers... Read more →


OPINION: HOW DO CIVIL WARS HAPPEN?

By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war. The Mueller investigation was about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not... Read more →

updated Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (February 20, 2022)(CNBNews)In the past weeks I have been bringing attention to the deficiencies of our school system.

Letter to the Editor: Being Censored by Big Tech

DES MOINES — Earlier this week, the Grassley Works campaign shared a Fox News article on Facebook regarding new allegations uncovered by the Durham investigation detailing more corruption by the 2016 Clinton campaign for president. That article referenced federal court filings alleging that the Clinton campaign colluded to exploit internet data on Trump Tower and the White House to fabricate phony links to Russia. The article also included analysis from a former congressional investigator who worked to expose the bogus Russian collusion story. “When I shared that news story with Iowans, Facebook promptly censored the article, labeling it ‘[f]alse information’...

Opinion: Donohue on The Prayer Scare And Beyond

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on critical reactions to prayer and religious conversations: A half century ago, those who were not religious tended not to be anti-religious, so they had no impact on the faithful. That's changed. With almost three in ten Americans not adhering to any religion, there has been an increase in secular militancy, the likes of which we have never seen before in this country. CNBNews graphic file It's not just the increase in the "nones" that is troubling (those who answer "none" when asked what their religious affiliation is), it's... Read more →


Opinion: “Animal Rights” Activists’ Failed Attempt To Cancel Texas Safari & Zoo, Hypocrisy Exposed

By Marc Ang A fringe animal rights extremist group is going beyond obvious high profile private zoos and is now specifically targeting a zoo in East Texas. Thankfully, her efforts failed but simultaneously exposed the type of people with nothing better to do than to go after law abiding citizens and try to tear down their hard work.

NRA-ILA OPINION: Don't Believe Beto

MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2022 SUPPORT NRA-ILA The clown prince of American politics is back in the headlines. During a campaign stop in Tyler, Texas, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke shared his new position on firearms. According to the noted gun confiscation proponent, he’s no longer hell bent on grabbing guns. The failed presidential candidate told those gathered, “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone. What I want to make sure that we do is defend the Second Amendment.” CNBNews graphic file There is no reason to credit Beto’s purported change of heart. Further, as Beto tries to... Read more →

GUEST OPINION: Biden’s “black female”requirement is crass but may actually help Republicans

By Marc Ang If our qualifications for moving up in the world are reduced to our body parts and skin pigmentation, what a sad world that looks like. None of us choose what we end up with the generic lottery but great societies like America allow us to transcend all that to grow, succeed and accomplish. That was the America of the past. Today, America’s cancel culture desperately wants to simplify things to shallow attributes. Never mind details. Never mind hard work. A virtue signal is all that is needed. Check a few demographic boxes off and run up your... Read more →


GUEST OP-ED: Biden Was Never A Nice Guy

AMAC Exclusive – By Claire Brighn President Biden calls Fox News reporter Peter Doocy, a "stupid son of a bitch" photo provided Many Americans were rightly appalled to hear President Joe Biden call Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch” during a question-and-answer period following a White House event late last month. The bitter and angry man that Americans saw on their TV screens attacking Doocy for asking a simple question about inflation was a stark contrast with the “Mr. Nice Guy” Joe Biden that the media, elected Democrats, and even some Republicans sold the public...

A LOOK AT ABBOTT SCHOOL DISTRICT NJ (Part Three)

(The THIRD PART... of a four-part series Dumbing Down American Education) Dorothy Philbin | CNBNews Contributor Gloucester High School, 1300 Market Street, Gloucester City, NJ (CNBNewsnet photo credit)...The local school district became an Abbott District in 1997.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY, submitted by Chalie The Clip

I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking. graphic The Thinker My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, I said, "Nothing." She then said, "That's what you did yesterday!" I replied, "I WASN'T DONE , SO I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW." The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?" At that point I would have had to explain that men... Read more →

Guest Opinion: Ultimate Disrespect When Kelly Ernby’s Death Is Used To Fight About COVID  

By Marc Ang Tireless grassroots conservative activist and Orange County Deputy DA Kelly Ernby passed a few weeks ago supposedly from COVID complications. The shock reverberated through the Orange County conservative community as one of the GOP’s beloved rising stars, a kind-hearted 46-year-old blonde with a beautiful smile, passed prematurely. Just hours after her passing, opportunistic Republicans were the first jumping out in front of the media, acting like they were best friends with her, providing unverified accounts to the media, saying the death was due to COVID complications.

Guest Opinion: Silent No More...The Left Loses Its Monopoly on Narrative Setting

By Marc Ang Americans are finally getting hip to the mass manipulation by the media. I watched as the media did it’s best to make January 6th a “thing”. But having just taken a road trip across the country, the rank and file voter says otherwise. A recent CBS poll also confirms that a vast majority of Americans do not believe that this was an “insurrection” and are a lot less hyperbolic about it than talking heads on liberal cable shows or the Beltway media. https://www.gloucestercitynews.net (Est. 2006) Perhaps what fascinated me the most was the blatant statements many regular...

GUEST OPINION: The Attack on White People

Bill Donohue | CNBNews Contributor Justifying Racism January 5, 2022 Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on the growing trend of racism against white people: A long-standing liberal tenet—that we should condemn all forms of prejudice and discrimination equally—came under attack in the 1960s when President Lyndon Johnson decided that equal opportunity was outdated: he said the new goal should be equal outcomes. Ironically, this new thinking, which has since become a staple of liberal thought, was announced at the very moment when equal opportunity was finally emerging, thanks to the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Isn’t it time to wake up, Gloucester City? The 20 year Democrat experiment has failed you, just like it has failed everywhere else it has been tried.
