SIGN OF THINGS TO COME? NJ Dems Charged with Electoral Fraud for Alleged Mail-in Voting Scam

Mail-in voting opens pandora’s box for fraud opportunities.

By Shane Trejo – 6/26/2020

Three New Jersey Democrat politicians are being charged with fraud relating to a mail-in voting scam that allegedly happened as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The charges have been filed against a city councilman, a councilman-elect, the brother of another councilman, and a fourth individual for election fraud in May’s special election. The entire election was conducted via mail-in voting due to fears related to the coronavirus.

NJ 1st Ward Councilman Michael Jackson is accused of collecting mail-in ballots and giving them to the Passaic County Board of Elections without indicating that he was the official bearer with his signature. Prosecutors also allege that Jackson handed in at least one ballot before it had been properly filled out.

In addition, Alex Mendez, another Democrat who was victorious in the 3rd Ward election, allegedly collected mail-in ballots from different voters and submitted fraudulent voter registration applications.

Jackson won re-election with 844 votes while his opponents received 599 and 490 votes, respectively. Mendez won his post with 1,595 votes with his nearest competition receiving 1,350 votes.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service became aware of the alleged scam when they found several hundred mail-in ballots that were “bundled” in a mailbox in Paterson, with hundreds of other ballots found in a different mailbox in nearby Haledon. Overall, there were at least 800 ballots implicated in the alleged scam. This was enough to potentially influence the results of last month’s elections.

Other instances of alleged fraud were reportedly a family affair. Shelim Khalique, a 51-year-old Wayne resident, whose councilman brother, Shahim Khalique, won by just a few votes as a candidate in the 2nd Ward, is accused of illegally collecting and delivering mail-in ballots as well. Khalique is also facing charges of illegally employing a sex offender for his transportation company and hiring school bus drivers without qualifications.

Another suspect Abu Razyen, 21, of Prospect Park, has been taken into custody and charged with mishandling ballots as well.

“Today’s charges send a clear message: If you try to tamper with an election in New Jersey, we will find you and we will hold you accountable,” state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said after the charges were announced. “We will not allow a small number of criminals to undermine the public’s confidence in our democratic process.”

“While it’s gravely disappointing to see another episode of potential corruption in Paterson, I remain hopeful that this is the final chapter in what unfortunately has plagued our city for generations,” Mayor Andre Sayegh said in a written statement.

“I applaud the Attorney General’s Office for their vigilance, as we look forward toward a seismic shift in our political culture that prioritizes the ideals of democracy that my administration so greatly values,” he added.

With Democrats pushing for nationwide mail-in voting because of the COVID-19 pandemic, what happened in NJ last month could easily happen across the country in November unless electoral integrity is enforced.


Texas Orders 14-Day Quarantine For NY-NJ-CT & New Orleans Travelers

The Big Apple is Coronavirus epicenter of the US, with cases flaring up in New Orleans as well

By Kit Daniels – March 27, 2020

Texas is now requiring air travelers from Coronavirus hotspots to quarantine for 14 days.

Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered travelers from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut – the tri-state area around New York City – and from New Orleans to isolate themselves for no less than 14 days and may only have direct contact with health care providers.

Abbott’s executive order came in response to White House recommending anyone who just visited the New York City area to self-quarantine as the Big Apple is Coronavirus epicenter of the US.

“Every person who enters the State of Texas as the final destination through an airport, from a point of origin or point of last departure in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, or the City of New Orleans, or in any other state or city as may be proclaimed hereafter, shall be subject to mandatory self-quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Texas or the duration of the person’s presence in Texas, whichever is shorter,” Abbott declared.
“This order to self-quarantine shall not apply to people traveling in connection with military service, emergency response, health response, or critical-infrastructure functions, as may be determined by the Texas Division of Emergency Management.”

“Each person covered under this order to self-quarantine shall be responsible for all associated costs, including
transportation, lodging, food, and medical care.”

Affected travelers are to notify the Texas Dept. of Public Safety of their quarantine location upon disembarking from their flight, the executive order added.

A order will likely to reduce air travel severely from these areas.


NJ Coronavirus Patient is ‘Getting Worse’ Despite Being in Good Health Before Infection

“It happened so quick”

National File – MARCH 18, 2020

James Cai, 32-year-old physician’s assistant working in New Jersey was the first confirmed case of coronavirus in the entire Garden state.

In a statement provided to CBS, Cai delivers a warning; He has only gotten worse since his positive COVID-19 test, and we are not being told about all the possible underlying conditions that happen when you get coronavirus.

After checking into an Urgent Care, Cai was sent to the emergency room at Hackensack University Medical Center, and has been in the ER since Tuesday. Cai self-reports his experience with developing several unreported underlying conditions of the coronavirus.

Cai told CBS he strongly disagrees with health officials who say face masks are not necessary. Cai is against advice that face masks are unnecessary. “A lot of people say, ‘It’s OK, don’t wear masks,” says Cai. “I don’t believe that.”

“It happened so quick,” Cai says.

“The virus is everything. Diarrhea, watery eyes, shortness of breath, chest pain, you name it. High fever. … Every day is getting worse. People have to take the coronavirus seriously. It’s very serious,” Cai told CBS.

New Jersey Governor, Phil Murphy, announced the first case of confirmed coronavirus on Wednesday. “We take this situation very seriously and have been preparing for this for weeks,” says Governor Murphy.

Cai visited a Westin hotel in Midtown, Manhattan, and the King David nursing and rehabilitation facility in Brooklyn prior to contracting the virus. The staff of the King David identified Cai to the New York Post after suspicions were circulating as to where he contracted coronavirus.  There were 11 confirmed cases of Wuhan virus at the time of his visit to the rehab and nursing facility.

Since Cai became the first confirmed case of coronavirus in New Jersey, five new cases have been confirmed in the state. There are no confirmed deaths in the state of New Jersey, yet in the U.S. death tolls have hit 68. There are 3,487 total confirmed cases in the United States as of the time of this publication, but experts believe the actual number is significantly higher.


New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million in Financial Aid to Illegal Aliens



A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.



Cops Push Back In BIG Way After Left Wing AG Threatens Them If They Cooperate With ICE

New Jersey Cops Push Back BIG Time Against Left-Wing AG Who Threatened Them If They Assist ICE Agents

By Jon Dougherty

Police officers and sheriffs are pushing back hard against the attorney general of New Jersey after the threatened to take legal action against anyone found to be assisting federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in apprehending illegal aliens in the state.

As reported by Law Enforcement Today, AG Gurbir Grewal singled out two sheriff’s offices this week for “failing to inform the state’s attorney general that they are helping federal immigration authorities capture and deport undocumented migrants.”

The site noted:

In the aggressive letters that Grewal’s office sent to the elected sheriffs in Monmouth and Cape May this week, officials claim the county sheriffs went directly against a directive that Grewal had issued which would aim to limit cooperation between New Jersey cops and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

It’s called Law Enforcement Directive 2018-6, more often referred to as the “Immigrant Trust Directive”, and it bars local law enforcement agencies from voluntarily working with federal immigration officials.

Grewal’s office now says that working with federal officials in this capacity would “essentially deputize our state’s police officers to act like ICE agents.” Grewal says that the measure was supposed to build trust between the immigrant communities and law enforcement for reporting and helping with criminal investigations. He says cooperation with ICE can only continue if he decides it serves “a valid law enforcement purpose.”

Greater Lakewood news added that the AG accused the sheriff’s departments of working too closely with ICE. Last year, Sussex Sheriff Mike Strada “accused the AG of making New Jersey a sanctuary state,” the paper reported.

The local news site also published images of the letters Grewel’s office sent to the departments.

Law Enforcement Today noted further that police agencies have sent letters to U.S. Attorney General William Barr protesting Grewel’s policy. Also, New Jersey citizens have petitioned to have the policy put to a statewide vote, but so far to no avail.

For his part, Grewel claims to have absolute authority over the actions of local police jurisdictions in the state by issuing his directive.

“Officials and residents may not instruct their law enforcement officers to ignore a law enforcement directive,” Grewal said following complaints about the measure.


Grewal’s directive went into effect in March of 2019. reported that at the time, sheriff’s offices in three New Jersey counties — Cape May, Monmouth and Salem — still had existing agreements with ICE under a program dubbed “287g,” which allows state and local law enforcement to “act as a force multiplier” for ICE. Several counties had earlier done away with the agreements, which in New Jersey mainly applied to officers in county jails.

21 states take part in the 287g program. Officials say it “allows ICE to actively engage criminal alien offenders while incarcerated in a secure and controlled environment.”

Just last week, Grewel bragged on Twitter about New Jersey working with “federal” and other partners to curb criminal activity.

That sounds rather hypocritical.

Law Enforcement Today added:

Hold on. 

Let’s get this straight. Law enforcement officers in New Jersey are doing their jobs by working with federal ICE agents to arrest and deport people who are actively breaking the law, and the attorney general, who is supposed to work alongside the criminal justice system to uphold the Constitution…is threatening them?

When did we decide which laws are important and which aren’t? How is living in the country illegally justified because a leader in your state suddenly decided to go against federal law enforcement agencies and declare the community one of sanctuary?

This is becoming far too popular of a trend.
