From the desk of Councilwoman Tiffanie Fisher:

Dear neighbors - 

At the City Council meeting on 3/15, Mayor Zimmer introduced the 2017 Municipal Budget which includes a proposed 1.5% DECREASE in the Municipal Tax rate.  Effectively this is a result of combined financial discipline which has kept our budget flat vs. last year and an expansion of our ratable base in Hoboken due to recent development.  You can find the budget here:

There will be 3 public hearings on the budget STARTING TONIGHT!  The directors of the various departments in the Administration will present a more detailed version of their department budgets.  So please plan to attend, or at the very least watch live here:  

Tonight's hearing covers three areas that are always on the forefront of everyone's minds when they think about taxes and our city - Police, Legal and Parking. So don't waste this opportunity to learn more and ask questions about these important topics!   Do you think we need more police? Do you think we spend too much on legal fees? Do you want to know more about all these new parking meters? Then tonight is your night!

As the Chair of the Finance Subcommittee meeting I will be presiding over the hearings. So feel free to email me in advance with any questions you may have at

The next two hearings are as follows:

Battle of the fundraisers, round two

Last month, council members Ravi Bhalla and Mike DeFusco held opposing fundraisers on the same evening. It was more accidental than incidental but the overtones were none too apparent.

This time, the respective council members who recently clashed on the 901 Bloomfield resolution are again banging the tin cup a mere business day apart. Councilman Bhalla, the  Mile Square reigning Sikh official held a breakfast Friday with NJ gubernatorial whirlwind Democrat candidate Phil Murphy, the former US ambassador to Germany.

Councilman Mike DeFusco holds a "Pride Night Out" fundraiser this evening at the Dubliner. It's two consecutive months of fundraising for the first term councilman who officially points to his reelection prospects in 2020. Everyone else is pointing to the monthly fundraisers as an indication to marshall resources and unseat Mayor Dawn Zimmer this November for the mayor's office.

The fundraising push on each side comes with an eye on a March 31st deadline. In the middle of April, NJ ELEC reports will be submitted showing results for various campaign committees statewide. There'll be more than a little interest in not only the fundraising totals and who ponied up but the actual committees where the money is heading.

Will Mike DeFusco unveil a mayoral committee making a run for mayor official?

If DeFusco is a candidate for mayor, interest in who will be on his council-at-large ticket follows. Two names seeing some speculation are former councilman Tony Soares and Cheryl Fallick. Both were seen at the Cadillac Cantina event for DeFusco last month.

Deep State soft coup attempt vs. whistleblowers in Fourth Amendment warfare

Reports suggest decisive evidence of spying on president-elect transition team arriving today

The fast paced story evolving earlier this week after a Congressional Intelligence Committee hearing where the FBI and NSA Directors appeared is exploding with reports of "smoking gun" evidence of spying on the president-elect and his transition team.

The blockbuster report, filed late yesterday came from James Rosen, one of the examples MSV cited in its Horse Sense editorial Thursday, "Constitutional Carcass," as among reporters spied on by the Obama Administration.

Using FISA warrants, the initial intercepts legally approved led to an untold number of intelligence reports - "unmasking" - revealing actual names of American citizens on the transition team - a felony for each instance with criminal penalties of up to ten years in prison per instance. The law requires American names be protected in any foreign intelligence surveillance unless it sees senior intelligence approvals otherwise. An unknown number of names were kept in the reports and allegedly then widely circulated in the intelligence community.

From James Rosen's report:

"The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump..."

The same report also states the surveillance of the Trump transition team came to light prior to President Trump's tweets on March 4th accusing then President Obama of "wiretapping" him leading into the November election.

The report further states the volume of materials uncovered will need additional days to fully assess. The Congressional Intelligence Committee is set to meet again on Tuesday.

In one of his final acts of office, former President Obama vastly broadened the dissemination of raw intelligence reports. Days before President Trump's inauguration, the Guardian, a UK publication reported:

Under an executive order, the CIA, FBI and other security agencies will be able to access unfiltered surveillance aimed at foreigners abroad, before information identifying or revealing Americans they may be in contact with gets censored out. 

The ACLU and other Fourth Amendment constitutionalists have repeatedly warned about the potential for abuse using the FISA laws for purely political purposes. The ACLU however has not commented on the recent disclosures thus far.

The chair of the Congressional Intelligence Committee, Rep. Devin Nunes has invited people with information on any illicit spying activities of Americans to submit the information to the congressional investigation.

It's unknown which whistleblowers are behind the pending revelations expected to reach the Congressional Intelligence Committee as soon as today. Reports claim the NSA is cooperating providing supporting documentation but to date the FBI has ignored all such requests made by the Congressional oversight committee.

One alleged whistleblower, Dennis Montgomery who worked at the highest levels of the NSA and CIA, turned over a gargantuan millions of documents: 47 hard drives and 600 million pages.

In interviews with the FBI alleging massive illegal spying, Montgomery is said to have turned over the materials and sought whistleblower status. Freedom Watch submitted a letter to Rep. Nunes earlier this month on his behalf as seen below.

Among the allegations collected are claims of illegal spying on: the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, John Roberts, other Supreme Court judges, another 156 judges and high profile business people including Donald Trump.

Rep. Nunes has not indicated who or how many whistleblowers provided dozens of reports pointing to the domestic spying on President Trump's transition team or how many are "unmasked" in the reports.

President Trump's early conversations with foreign leaders from Mexico and Australia were reported "leaked" to the press. Suggestions are conversations as president-elect were fodder for surveillance including Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who received an early invitation and came to the White House during President Trump's first month in office.

Talking Ed Note: These are serious Constitutional matters involving the Fourth Amendment, the First Amendment and basic American freedoms.

Much of the corporate media are focused on covering up and distracting from the emerging evidence of a potential scandal dwarfing Watergate. About a half dozen corporate entities control most US media outlets, print and television.

Update: 11:30/12:40 - The next scheduled intel investigation hearing will see both the NSA and FBI Directors called back to testify in a closed session.  The attorney for Paul Manafort, who was the campaign chairman for the Trump campaign for several months offered to have his client testify. Former campaign manager Roger Stone who briefly worked on the Trump campaign has publicly demanded to testify.

John Podesta, the former campaign chair to the Hillary Clinton campaign who also worked on the Obama White House has seen numerous current and recent financial ties to Russian companies revealed and has made no public comment.

It's unclear if any whistleblower, Dennis Montgomery alleged as one, will be testifying in any closed session. Rep. Devin Nunes, the chair of the intel committee has declined to publicly identify any sources.

Nunes did say, "We have people that continue to come forward to provide us information."

Horse Sense: Constitutional Carcass

The First Amendment is under attack and the Fourth Amendment lays tattered in a shredder.

What do reporters James Rosen, Sharyl Attkisson, the Associated Press and former Congressman Dennis Kucinich all have in common?

James Rosen has a story and his parents on Staten Island are party to it too. Declared "co-conspirators" against who?

Sheryl Attkisson, a former CBS reporter filed a lawsuit last October against the US Department of Justice for an alleged invasion of her computer. She claims being setup with not only the computer being taken over but several classified documents planted.

The Associated Press saw reporters "wiretapped" for months by the same DOJ.

Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich recounted earlier this month how a phone call he took in his Capital Office landed up coming back to him in a DC press story, clearly released by unknown intel agency sources involving Libya. He heard the actual recording in 2015.

Kucinich says the intel collected conversation was made and then leaked for "political reasons."

Who authorizes and then "unmasks" US citizens, reporters even national elected officials in such a manner using the highest level national intel resources?

See the shiny toy and distraction, ℅ CNN: the leader in Fake News.

Talking Ed Note: There's more on all this, far more of course. If you're aware, you'll note the sizable effort to stomp down the emerging truth in a war against the US Constitution and its citizens. Suddenly stories from the usual suspects about "possible" and "suspect" collusion with unnamed sources are popping up as actual evidence comes to the fore. Coincidence?

Where have we seen this routine before and ask yourself, why now?

For those brave enough who can handle the truth; a sneak peek: see what's all the fuss to suppress a congressional investigation with Russia mythology is about. In recent years, whistleblowers have faced more risk than ever before. Why?

One claims to have tried and having failed took drastic action. His name is Edward Snowden.
The next name you may hear if it's not suppressed by the Deep State and its media arm:

Dennis Montgomery.
