It had to happen eventually.

Why I'll cut Phil Murphy some slack

1/10/2019
More
Phil Murphy's campaign and the NJ state government are being sued over claims they did nothing when staffer Katie Brennan took every step possible to make known her allegation another staffer sexually assaulted her. Jim says it seems obvious someone -- multiple people -- dropped the ball. But is it really fair to blame Phil Murphy himself?

How NJ residents felt about Murphy's 1st year

1/3/2019
More
Murphy came in with a progressive agenda on everything from a $15 minimum wage to free tuition to legal marijuana. The reality? It's been a bit of a mixed bag for a governor who's hit more resistance from his fellow Democrats in the state legislature than he may have bargained for.

The last fast food that I had was a Big Mac in 1973

Want to be spry, vital, lightning-quick and knifepoint-sharp into your mid-80s and beyond? Want to be the sort of person who could bounce back from a could-have-been catastrophic fall at that age? That describes our host, Jim Gearhart, and it's awfully tempting to conclude the way Jim eats plays a part. "I'm a vegetarian who eats meat," Jim says. And he hasn't touched fast food in 45 years.

The politically correct Christmas Party

Some things just stand the test of time. Jim Gearhart's never been a fan of politically correct culture -- not when his groundbreaking morning talk show as on the airwaves of New Jersey 101.5 for 25 years, and not now. But he does love Christmas. And he does love humor. And so he absolutely loves hearing about "The Politically Correct Christmas Party."

Mouse Balls! The tradition returns

12/13/2018
More
Jim's taking a stroll down memory lane, to what became a Christmas-season tradition on the New Jersey 101.5 morning show he helmed for a quarter-century. It hearkens back to the early 1990s, back when few people at the station had computers. "We were not very computer-savvy," Jim says. Sure, the staff knew the basics. They knew about basic peripherals, for instance. "We knew you had the mouse, that you could click and all. I don't think we owned one," Jim says. But when Jim got his hands...

Keeping the foreigners out? Maybe it's just in our nature

12/6/2018
More
Jim Gearhart says, in principle, he could actually get on board with a lot of progressive priorities -- if he thought society was ready for them. Take immigration. He recently read a comment from someone who suggested it's time we get past our territorial nature, and let people from other countries enjoy the privledges that come with access to America. But is that realistic? Get the full Jim Gearhart Show Podcast on ... ... the New Jersey 101.5 app: http://nj1015.com/app ... iTunes...

New Jersey school is showing bias against Christians

Jim thought most New Jersey colleges had escaped what he considers far-left, politically correct insanity -- but Rider College has banned Chick-Fil-A over its owners stances on LGBT rights issues.

New Jersey ready to fight the snowstorm that never comes

The death of American democracy? It sure looks like it

Jim says an increasingly divided country has become full of people voting in their own narrowly defined self-interest — "with no eye to sound government at all, but according to whatever emotional urgings they might have at the moment."

The big loser on Election Day: The far-left media

11/8/2018

"You know, the big loser in this election was this area of the media that is so far out left and constantly hammering away at Trump, and were trying to make this a referendum on Trump," Jim Gearhart says in the latest edition of the Jim Gearhart Show Podcast. But despite that hammering, there was no true Blue Wave -- not one powerful enough to take the Senate along with the House, Jim says. So what's that say about the media's power?

Why they're blaming Trump for the Pittsburgh shooting

11/3/2018
More
Jim Gearhart has heard the same criticisms you have — that President Donald Trump's rhetoric is to blame for the violence we've seen over the last few weeks. That if not for his tone, perhaps there wouldn't have been bombs sent to Democratic leaders and a horrific synagogue shooting in Pittsbugth. "Was Donald Trump resident at Columbine? ... What about the Connecticut school shooting? ... The South Carolina church shooting, where six unfortunate people were killed in a racial incident?...

The one way NJ Gov. Phil Murphy really impresses me

Every politician tries to appeal to a constituency — often some core demographic. Some race or religion or gender or class. But Phil Murphy took on a group no one thought to make his own before, Jim Gearhart says — he's trying to make a special interest group of the corrupt politician and the convicts.

Plenty of people were outraged by the comments now former Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino made on secretly recorded audio. Last week, WNYC released audio that had been secretly recorded in January in which Saudino criticizes Gov. Phil Murphy's criminal justice reform platform, saying that "in other words let the blacks come in, do whatever the f*** they want, smoke their marijuana, do this do that, and don't worry about it. You know, we'll tie the hands of cops." Saudino also said...

This week is another contentious one in Washington, D.C. (but aren't they all?) "The only friend I have in Washington is the Constitution," Jim Gearhart says in the latest installment of the Jim Gearhart Show podcast, available here as well on iTunes and Google Play. "Really, nothing else. Nobody else there gives a damn about me or you." So Jim's not exactly bothered by the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
