Joshua Sotomayor Einstein is 'Chasing Amy'

The following is a guest submission courtesy of Hoboken resident Joshua Sotomayor Einstein.

Hudson Dem Chair Challenged to Debate by GOP State Committeeman Sotomayor Einstein
Amy DeGise

Joshua Sotomayor Einstein, NJ GOP State Committeeman challenged Hudson Democrat Chairwoman Amy DeGise to debate in a letter published on July 30thin the Hudson County View. The, as-of-yet unanswered, debate challenge was precipitated by what Sotomayor Einstein, a grassroots community leader, called “a nihilistic anti-police movement for rioting and destruction from the Democrat leadership and the extremists they protect.” He continued, “the Democrat leadership, nationally and in Hudson County, has categorically refused to acknowledge the fact that there has been chaos across the nation because the riots have been orchestrated by the radical left and the uptick in violence is a direct result of Democrat policies of demonizing law enforcement and releasing violent criminals onto the streets.”
Indeed, from the release of convicted criminals to taking down statues of Christopher Columbus, defunding the police to appeasing Chinawhitewashing rioting and crime, and encouraging cancel culture, the Hudson County Democrats seem content to follow to the extremist left down the rabbit hole of destruction. Prominent Democrat leaders in Hudson County have not rebutted calls to defund the police, that “all cops are bastards”, to take down county statues of Columbus, or to destroy Israel; all stances advocated for at recent rallies across Hudson County that many of the county Democrat leadership attended.
"It's little surprise that DeGise can't reply to the debate challenge, the county Democrats don't want to be held accountable for endorsing the orgy of hate and venom coming from the extremists in their base," said Sotomayor Einstein. He continued, "regardless of whether she can or cannot defend the indefensible, the people of Hudson county deserve leadership unafraid to discuss the issues facing our county and nation."

Gristy Chewable: Ravi Bhalla to his "Army of Karens" - Show me the Money!


Mayor Ravi Bhalla is suffering from demented death mask disorder. It's an illness insisting Hoboken's 55,000 residents wear a mask outdoors at all times when there's but a handful of active cases of the Chinese Communist Party Virus reported across the Mile Square City.

If you think Ravi Bhalla is sweating at night a millennial may get infected with the virus and come down with the sniffles, let's put that fallacy to rest.


The true objective in Ravi Bhalla building an Army of Karens is to unleash his insiders on the CCP Virus task force and other like-minded municipal Ravibots on an unsuspecting public for loot.

At $250 a pop for each violation, it's a revenue enhancer the mayor and his cronies are eager to see happen. Sources inside and outside City Hall say the motivation for imposing these harsh fines with Hoboken seeing but a handful of reported cases of the virus makes no sense from a health standpoint.

As it stands today, a resident has a better chance of catching a venereal disease than the CCP Virus.

As reported yesterday, there's a major problem with the program pending final City Council approval. The State of New Jersey is the controlling authority on Governor Phil Murphy's executive order on masks. In that order, the hint of violations lending themselves to fines is barely viable based on Murphy's own admission.

The State of NJ has not made hunting down residents for not wearing masks a priority. In addition, the mask order holds all sorts of caveats based on an individual's health and viability in taking steps to maintain social distancing when in public. To a large extent, it's common sense oriented and the focus is on avoiding large parties and indoor gatherings as one in Alpine, NJ over the weekend. 

Then there's the additional aspect of enforcement and citations. Penalties, if any, would fall under the authority of the NJ Attorney General's Office, not a local mayor and his "Army of Karens."

"Hoboken is anticipating guidance from the county and State," said one reliable source familiar with the matter. "If they come back and say this is a bad joke, what were you thinking, the program is DOA."

Should that happen, no City Council vote on the ordinance would even take place and the entire scheme dead in the water. Apparently among the hundreds of NJ municipalities, Ravi Bhalla and his Army of Karens are the only ones looking to cheat the state of its authority and any mask-related revenues.

The Hoboken Corporation Counsel Office has reportedly been in a "scramble" trying to get the Army of Karen's mask violation plan off the ground. The Bhalla Administration inserted the proposed ordinance with the City Council at the last minute calling it "an emergency."

Meanwhile, the mayor's office is deflecting questions about the Army of Karens mask violation program and trying to point the finger at the City Council for its conception. In other words, it's business as usual, pandemic notwithstanding.

The City of Hoboken like the Big Apple across the way is becoming desperate for revenue as the lockdown's impact continues to take its toll. Ravi Bhalla's Army of Karens and their cheerleaders may despite best efforts see his mask revenue enhancement plan die on the vine.

Oh the humanity.

Grist for the Mill is MSV's rumor column but its success makes it the most popular column in all the Mile Square City. Have a tasty carrot for Horsey?

Ravi Bhalla prepared to unleash "Army of Karens" & $250 fine for those not wearing masks

City Council appears ready to approve unconstitutional edict unleashing "Army of Karens"

Science will have to take it on the chin if Mayor Ravi Bhalla goes forward with his latest attempt at government overreach. 

Skeptics are already scratching their heads wondering, what's the purpose? In Hoboken as in much of New Jersey, the Chinese Communist Party Virus blew through. The impact has been felt most by elderly living in senior centers who saw the virus brought in by order of the governor, Phil Murphy. Both New York's Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey Governor Murphy gave similar executive orders leading to untold thousands being felled by the virus.

Yesterday, the State of New Jersey reported eight deaths and a little over 400 new cases. Those cases have been clustered around youth events and parties among a population minimally affected by the virus. 

The City of Hoboken hasn't reported much of anything in the dwindling pandemic caseload in the Mile Square City. There's been but a handful of cases amongst a population of 55,000 in recent days and the last report weeks ago from Hoboken University Medical Center saw its cases had fallen to zero.

Hoboken has seen 29 deaths, the majority very elderly with underlying illness but the last mortality case is more than a month old.

An Army of Karens

Ravi Bhalla however is ramping up his Army of Karens which reportedly will go far beyond the Hoboken Police being authorized to give citations. The ordinance will authorize Office of Emergency Management personnel, code enforcement officers, zoning department and construction officials and any members of the pandemic task force the ability to issue fines.

The effectiveness of people being coerced to wear a face mask outdoors in uncrowded conditions is highly questionable by many scientists. Last week, the Netherlands instituted a policy informing the public its scientists conclude it's not necessary.

As announced a week ago by the that nation's NIH equivalent, the Netherlands is focusing on adhering to social distancing "because from a medical perspective there is no proven effectiveness of masks," Tamara van Ark said at a presser held in The Hague.

Legal beagles are already taking aim at the ordinance questioning its legality. "As New Jersey saw the brunt of this pandemic early this year, this face mask call could have been made at the height but to do so now is more than a little suspect, especially a small town mayor," said one who asked for anonymity for fear of being subjected to cancel culture vengeance. "Any mayor trying to impose additional regulation and penalties above and beyond the state is subject to being immediately overturned in court. It could open a municipality to additional liability" they added.

Talking Ed Note: Here's an example of a Karen that Ravi Bhalla seeks to pander to with an unedited video. Note, two men are sitting alone and are approached and one is assaulted by a Karen with coffee.

Some residents are already concerned about the potential for violence putting a Stasi type Karen force out on the streets pointing to incidents seeing attention across the country. Other residents induced by fear over months with pandemic hysteria are eager to see Ravi Bhalla's Army of Karens unleashed.

Horse Sense: The truth about the pandemic, treatment and children

Frontline doctors treating patients during the pandemic for the Chinese Communist Party Virus held a news conference yesterday in Washington DC.

It's made quite a splash.

They recounted their experience operating on the frontlines and questioned the revived assault against the successful application of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) combination therapies championed by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko. Other physicians have taken notice.
There's an in-depth discussion at yesterday's news conference about the application of fear to the pandemic, the safety for children to return to school and how Americans need to hear from medical experts around the country.

This video broadcast yesterday was seen by millions of Americans. Then the censorship assault took shape and ripped it from public viewing on Facebook and Youtube. Twitter has reportedly been suspending select users posting the doctors' testimony seen below.

The censorship assault comes in tandem with new efforts to see undermined the safe use of HCQ combination therapies emanating out of medical bureaucracies and Dr. Anthony Fauci over months.

Why are medical professionals, frontline physicians being censored in a national conversation about the nation's health and successfully treating the CCP Virus?


Talking Ed Note: Yesterday, the City of Hoboken reported six additional cases of the virus in the past week. Mayor Ravi Bhalla is making noise about the potential harm to children seeing "reports" of young people and children with "lasting, severe health effects."


Last month, the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) did a study on known caseloads and mortality. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) admitted actual cases of the virus may be exponentially understated across the US.

In the June study, those people between the ages of 20-49 are seen with a 0.0092% mortality rate or nine deaths per 100,000 infections.

Children 10-19 see far lower mortality rates of 0.00032% or three deaths in ONE MILLION infections.

At these numbers, we're talking about a higher mortality rate over the past year for similarly aged children exceeded by the flu. The CCP Virus causing COVID-19 is not an influenza; it's a coronavirus but its impact on those not elderly and immunocompromised is being vastly overstated.

Alternatively, a very successful early treatment with HCQ combination therapies is being kept from the American people.

Just recently, an Ivy League epidemiology professor, Harvey Risch asserted that hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is "the key to defeating COVID-19." Dr. Risch wrote his published article on the subject originally with Newsweek.

Mikie Squared "I vanna be da mayor"

It may seem but a blip in the 2021 distance but Hoboken politics is a mirth of entertainment and ambition in the Mile Square City, yes, even during a pandemic.

While most are distracted and many exited Hoboken in the spring if at all possible, Councilman Michael Russo has a dream.

It goes back some years when he said he believed one day he'd become Hoboken mayor. Now fast forward to 2020 and while some of the public see a titular match featuring Mayor Ravi Bhalla vs Councilman Mike DeFusco set for the fall of 2021, not everyone is on board.

Not that the eventuality of that final lineup couldn't appear in a runoff. If it should come to pass it would be an ultimate death match. The bad blood of the terror flyer is not forgotten and Mike DeFusco wakes up daily counting off the days for revenge.

However, for now, there's lots of time for fun and games. There's nothing like getting in early and pumping up your mayoral candidacy and negotiating position.

So who's the yet unannounced candidate out and about seeking political support for Hoboken mayor in 2021?

Why, it's Hoboken's very own swashbuckling pandemic pirate: Michael Russo.
