The ‘People’s Republic of Montclair,’ as Star-Ledger editorial page editor and Montclair resident Tom Moran nicknamed our prominent community, has had a steady, growing socialist/communist presence or connection for generations. We live side by side, joke on social media, but…is it time for the romance language of communism — making everyone equal in some sort of Utopia (in our case, a ‘perfect’ Montclair?) — to be deconstructed? To do so would mark yet another end to political correctness. This conversation is especially important for young adults.
Communism promises to make everyone equal, but delivers radical inequality. Every time it’s tried, it ends in economic collapse or a police state. From the famines, purges, and gulags of Soviet Russia to Mao’s Great Leap Forward and the Killing Fields of the Khmer Rouge—from the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre to the Castro regime’s 2012 murder of Oswaldo Payá—communists have killed more than 100 million people. Countless more suffered and suffer still. – VOC Memorial Foundation

Join in a sociable dinner on Thursday, January 18, 7 pm at Montclair’s Greek Taverna to hear President Trump’s message through the perspective of Rogers‘ boots-on-the-ground operation.

One of the nicest Montclair Independence Day parades in memory took place on July 4, 2017, under perfect skies.

Disrupt NJ: Meet Nick [in]Surgent, Assembly Candidate in 34th AD (Montclair, Clifton, Orange, East Orange)
Come and Meet the Neighbors!
The Montclair Republican Club and the Clifton Republican Club cordially invite all of their members, as well as friends and supporters, to our first joint meeting on Thursday, May 18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Bloomfield Town Pub. It’s about time.
For decades, now, Assembly elections in Essex County, so crucial to fiscal direction of our state, have come and gone under the radar. Every two years the public sector unions back entrenched incumbents who serve the interests of the progressive political class in Trenton. The result of these elections is never in doubt.
It’s time for that to change. This year, in honor of our first effort at District-wide club cooperation, we’ll be joined by Nick Surgent, a bold young Republican candidate for Assembly in District 34 (Montclair, Clifton, Orange and East Orange). Please come, and get a glimpse into a brighter future for our respective communities, our State and our nation.
There’s no admission charge for this meeting. You’re welcome to enjoy the hearty menu at the Town Pub, or just hoist a brew. Come and bring friends, and ideas about how disruptive we inSURGENTS can be. RSVP to email@example.com with ‘inSURGENT’ in the subject line.
About Nick Surgent:
From Nick Surgent:
I am running for the General Assembly in the 34th district (Clifton, Montclair, Orange, and East Orange). From school funding to wasteful spending and unnecessary tax increases, the people of our district deserve a new voice that has new ideas and new solutions.This November I would be honored to have your vote, a vote for a renewed spirit and a voice for positive change.
Whether riding new waves or being old school, Montclair Republicans, conservatives, libertarians & independents are finding enjoyable ways to connect and communicate.
The 100+ year-old Montclair Republican Club believes in and maintains its century-old focus on sociable gatherings and presentations. Upcoming is a hospitable meet-and-greet on the evening of Primary Day, Tuesday, June 6, 7 pm for local Republicans, conservatives and conservative independents (and those who are transitioning from liberal to conservative) who would enjoy connecting with like-minded people at a special Montclair location (to be announced). Email firstname.lastname@example.org to attend, with ‘June 6’ in the subject line. The success of last month’s Club luncheon featuring possible gubernatorial candidate Joe Piscopo proves the case that breaking bread together is still a favored form of bonding for conservatives and their guests. Remember to vote on June 6.
Digital media links individuals and organizations around the block and around the globe, almost effortlessly. In addition to the Montclair Republican Club’s Facebook page, similar hubs include the new discussion groups ‘Montclair Right-of-Center‘ (‘MRoC’) and ‘Montclair’s Other Watercooler,’ the latter for registered Montclair Republicans only. MRoC’s tagline is on the mark: ‘you are NOT alone!’ If you’re right of the political center, consider joining and ‘liking’ these groups and pages, especially if you DO feel ‘alone’ in your worldview as a Montclair resident.
Did you know Montclair has more than 9,000 independent voters, in addition to 13,000 Democrats and 2,500 Republicans? No wonder the town has had the reputation of featuring 38,000 opinions: it is more diverse than suggested in chatrooms that focus on ‘progressive’ politics and ‘Montclair values.’
A new place for independents to gather is the Montclair Independents Facebook page, and it is yet to be seen if the town’s new weekly print and web publication, The Montclair Local, shows partisan stripes or merely reports on the town’s very vocal, active majority and thus appears to be left-leaning.
Mr. Piscopo and other conservative radio hosts are featured on 970 AM The Answer, while even Montclair’s mayor, Robert Jackson, listens to Mark Levin of 770 AM. There are ample opportunities 24 / 7 to gather ’round the radio for centrist and conservative fireside chats.
A unique media product in New Jersey, the SAVE JERSEY blog appears to be the only conservative state-wide media outlet. Produced by South Jersey attorney Matt Rooney, Save Jersey is growing. [Addendum: a reader has mentioned new conservative media outlet, similar to the Drudge Report: Jersey Report]
Fifteen years ago, then-USA Today reporter Jill Lawrence created a ‘red vs. blue’ profile series featuring Montclair as a ‘liberal community’ profiled against Franklin, Tennessee as a ‘conservative community.’ Her fascinating multi-part series was proposed and researched just after the George Bush inauguration in 2001, and was interrupted by the events of 9/11. It ran in Gannett’s flagship national publication fifteen years ago, in February of 2002. Annotated syntheses for collegiate use are HERE, HERE and HERE ; click HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE to read the original stories. Real-time Free Republic comments on the series are HERE.

Entertainer, media personality and Essex County native Joe Piscopo will be the featured speaker at Montclair Republican Club’s sociable luncheon on Wednesday, March 29, 2017.
The 12 noon event will be held at Greek Taverna Restaurant, 292 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, New Jersey. Tickets are $30 each, and can be purchased using Paypal or your credit card by clicking HERE. A student (age 12 – 22) luncheon ticket is available for $10 by clicking HERE. For other payment arrangements, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited; reserve early.
Piscopo is said to be entertaining a run for governor of New Jersey as an Independent. Known until recently as a life-long Democrat, Piscopo transitioned his voter registration to ‘unaffiliated’ several years ago.
The Club has asked Mr. Piscopo to speak about his political evolution and his possible run for New Jersey governor, in addition to sharing a Sinatra standard or two.
