New Jersey Governor Seeking to Revoke Trump Golf Course Liquor Licenses

BEDMINSTER, NJ – The plan is coming together for the left. Secure a conviction on former President Donald J. Trump in a New York City courtroom, and begin dismantling the Democrat’s biggest obstacle in 2024.

Now, the State of New Jersey, led by Governor Phil Murphy and Attorney General Matt Platkin are looking to seize upon an opportunity.

Today, it was reported that the New Jersey Attorney General’s office is currently investigating if Donald Trump’s felony convictions disqualify him from holding liquor licenses at his three state golf courses. The investigation follows Trump’s conviction on 34 felony charges, including payments of hush money to a porn star and falsifying business records.

The state’s Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control is assessing whether these convictions affect Trump’s ability to maintain his liquor licenses. This division, under the attorney general’s office, is handling the review but has not provided further details at this stage.

Under New Jersey law, individuals convicted of a crime involving “moral turpitude” are barred from holding liquor licenses. The division’s handbook defines “moral turpitude” as a serious crime generally viewed by society as involving dishonesty, fraud, or depravity.

Trump, who no longer owns casinos in Atlantic City, holds active liquor licenses for his golf courses located in Bedminster, Colts Neck, and Pine Hill. The former president is set to be sentenced on July 11 in the New York case, amidst preparations for the upcoming November general election.

  • New Jersey Man Arrested for Damaging Pride Flags in Downtown Display

    MADISON, NJ – A 21-year-old local man was arrested on charges of criminal mischief after allegedly tearing down six pride flags in downtown Madison early Sunday morning. The incident, which also involved damaging several light stanchions on Waverly Place, occurred around 5 a.m., with the suspect discarding the flags in a trash receptacle in front of a bank.

    Madison police utilized surveillance footage to identify and apprehend the borough resident on Monday. He faces a fourth-degree criminal mischief charge, with damages estimated at $500 or less.

    “Madison is a welcoming community, and the acts that occurred over the weekend were a prime example of what type of behavior will not be tolerated in Madison. Since 2019, we have been proudly displaying the Pride flags downtown to recognize all LGBTQIA+ residents whose influential and lasting contributions make Madison a vibrant community in which to live, work, and visit.”

    The arrest resulted from an investigation on June 9, 2024, when Madison officers were dispatched to Waverly Place for a report of six Pride flags being removed from the light stanchions, with several found damaged. The flags are displayed annually to celebrate and support the LGBTQIA+ community during Pride Month. Surveillance video from a Waverly Place business captured the suspect removing the flags and discarding them in a trash receptacle in front of the Chase Bank on Waverly Place. The flags were recovered by officers, secured at the Public Safety Building, and turned over to the Public Works Department for repairs and re-display, which occurred this morning.

    During the investigation, patrol officers identified McNamara as the suspect. He was taken into custody at his residence without incident, transported to police headquarters, processed accordingly, and released on a complaint summons pending his court appearance in Madison Joint Municipal Court.

    The Madison Police Department has been working closely with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office since the case’s inception to ensure the incident did not meet the threshold of a biased crime.

    “I want to commend the quick actions of our officers in their response, investigation, and apprehension of our suspect. We take this act very seriously, and this type of behavior has no place in Madison or anywhere else,” said Chief Miscia.

    The damaged flags were promptly repaired and reinstalled on Monday. In response to the incident, Madison Mayor Robert H. Conley reaffirmed the community’s commitment to inclusivity, stating,

  • Jeffrey Epstein’s Ex-Cop Cellmate Gets Four Consecutive Life Sentences for Murders

    NEW YORK, NY – Nicholas Tartaglione, a former police officer turned steroids-selling bodybuilder from Briarcliff Manor, New York, was sentenced on Monday to four consecutive life terms in federal prison. Tartaglione, 56, was convicted for the execution-style murders of four Mexican men in a case that involved drug conspiracy, kidnapping, and murder charges.

    The U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas mandated the life sentences, highlighting the “monstrous offenses” committed by Tartaglione, as emphasized by prosecutors in their correspondence to the court. Despite his assertions of innocence and his statement to News 12 that he is “a cop in prison for crimes I didn’t do,” the severity of the crimes led to this inevitable conclusion of a life sentence.

    The incident that led to Tartaglione’s conviction occurred in April 2016, when he lured 41-year-old Martin Luna to a meeting at a bar under the guise of discussing a financial matter. Luna was strangled to death in front of his nephews, Miguel Luna, 25, and Urbano Santiago, 35, as well as his friend Hector Gutierrez, 43. The three were subsequently taken to Tartaglione’s property in Otisville, where they were executed by gunshot and buried in a mass grave.

    The case has drawn significant attention not only due to the gruesome nature of the crimes but also because of Tartaglione’s previous notoriety as a cellmate of the infamous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
