New Jersey Concession Speech Heard Around The World

Jack Ciattarelli, The Republican candidate for New Jersey Governor, recently delivered a highly commendable concession speech that was seen by many as a total rebuke of Trumpism. Ever since former President Trump lost the 2020 election to Democrat Joe Biden, Trump has promoted without any evidence, the “big lie”, that the election was somehow rigged in Biden’s favor. After initial push back from some prominent establishment Republicans at the beginning of the year, the GOP now appears to have wholeheartedly embraced Trump’s big lie. It is for this reason that Ciattarelli’s concession speech expressing his total faith in our election system, is especially noteworthy and commendable.

Ciattarelli said in his speech: “For those whose faith in our election system is shaken, for those who are angry that I’m not asking for a recount today, let me say this. I’ve worked every day and night for 22 months to become New Jersey’s Governor. If you think I’d be standing here today conceding if I thought I won this election, you couldn’t be more wrong. I hate to lose…but I’m also someone who believes strongly in our republic, and our democratic processes. Enough votes have been counted. There does not appear to be a path to victory or the basis for a recount, nor do we know of any systemic or widespread fraud. So no, I see no proof that this election was stolen.”

Ciattarelli’s eye brow raising concession speech comes on the heels of a similar speech by former New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie, urging the GOP to move away from Trump’s big lie. You’ll also remember a few months ago(May), yet another former New Jersey Republican Governor, Christine Todd-Whitman, openly floated the idea of breaking away from Trump’s GOP and forming a true conservative party. Given former Governor Todd-Whitman’s public statements about breaking away from Trump’s GOP, and the recent statements by Christie and Ciatarelli, one cannot help but wonder whether the Garden State is the Ground Zero for the much anticipated GOP split.

Bottom line folks, as Yours Truly has repeatedly stated, the GOP cannot survive Trumpism, and it’s only a matter of time before the party splits as we approach the 2024 presidential election cycle. The party may remain intact if Trump exits the stage before 2024, but that prospect doesn’t appear likely. Have Garden State Republicans Christine Todd-Whitman, Chris Christie, Jack Ciattarelli, et al, already initiated the split process as we approach 2024? All in all, the 2024 GOP presidential contest will be a sight to behold, with candidates who want the party to remain loyal to former president Trump duking it out against Chris Christie, Rep Liz Cheney, et al, who want to move on. As for you, just remember to remind the mainstream media types when they drop “bombshell pieces” about the split, that Yours Truly saw it from a mile away.

Trump’s Corruption Over New FBI Building

President Trump in a meeting with GSA Head Emily Murphy over FBI Building

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow recently did a bombshell segment in which she exposed what appears to be a blatant corruption case involving General Services Administration’s Emily Murphy and President Trump who appointed her to run that federal agency. The full maddow segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.

According to Maddow the entire corruption scheme revolves around plans to build a new FBI building to replace the old and dilapidated one that currently sits only a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC.It turns out the original plan was to abandon the current FBI site and instead build a sprawling state of the art FBI complex at some suburban DC location. The developer would then be allowed to tear down the current dilapidated FBI building that sits a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC and use that prime real estate location to develop any property of their choice.

It was well known that among the properties that would be developed in this prime real estate location would be a high end hotel–and therein lies the whole corruption scheme. The idea that there were plans to build a new high end hotel only a few blocks from Trump Hotel DC was one that clearly didn’t sit well with Trump and as you might have guessed already, the original plan to build a new sprawling FBI complex in suburban DC was abruptly scrapped and replaced with a new plan to tear down the old FBI building and build a new one at the same location.

Naturally all the alarms went off with this dramatic change of plans regarding where to build the new FBI building with Dems questioning the GSA Administrator whether Trump ordered her to make this decision. In her testimony before congress, GSA Administrator Emily Smith said the dramatic change in plans was entirely an FBI decision and had nothing to do with Trump.


Well there is concrete evidence now proving that the GSA Administrator made a bold faced lie to congress and that Trump indeed ordered her to make the dramatic change in plans regarding the location of the new FBI building–a clear cut conflict of interest for Trump. There is no question that this was a decision made to benefit Trump Hotel DC–the quintessential government corruption.

Bottom line GSA head Emily Murphy needs to be held accountable. Under normal times the stunning revelation by Maddow alone would have been enough to shame her into resignation. But given the current political climate we find ourselves in, there is no likelihood of that happening. Dems and the mainstream media must therefore demand that GSA Administrator Emily Murphy be held accountable not just for her blatant corrupt actions but also because she made a bold faced lie to congress–a felony.
