Is Democrat Lisa Bhimani lying about her backstory?

We all have a backstory.   It is who we are and where we’ve been up to now.  Up to the present presentation of ourselves.  How we tell it, tells a lot about who we are and what we are up to – is there integrity behind that smiling face… or somebody on the make?  

If you are a member of the generation who experienced Woodstock and the Summer of Love, you might remember the rock anthem by the name “My Back Pages.”  It was written by poet, folk musician, and artist Bob Dylan in 1964, to illustrate his backstory – and his growing disillusionment with the protest movement and a political idealism that was deeply elitist – with privileged college kids displaying a sneering contempt for the working class boys being sent to fight and die in Vietnam.

We were reminded of this contempt just days ago, when two Democrat Assemblywomen brought in Jane Fonda for a post-Veterans Day event to celebrate that notorious woman who once counseled the government of Communist North Vietnam to “execute” captured American military personnel, labelling the captured American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines as “war criminals”.  Here is the woman the Democrats called “a hero” – in her own words:

And now they want to add to their ranks.

The two Democrat Assemblywomen who brought Jane Fonda into New Jersey… to praise her, and slobber over her, and kneel at her alter… those Democrat Assemblywomen are hoping to add a few more comrades to their caucus during next year’s legislative races.  One is Lisa Bhimani, the Vice Chairwoman of the Morris County Democrat Party and one of the organizers of the anti-Trump protest movement in New Jersey.

It was Lisa Bhimani’s group that led a series of rather uncivil protests against Vietnam Vet Rodney Frelinghuysen, accusing the aging veteran of all manner of improprieties and cowardice – and successfully sowing such a distaste that the aging gentleman simply walked away.  Of course, the state of his health didn’t help matters… and they knew that.

Lisa Bhimani is a medical doctor who has practiced in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Providence, Rhode Island, but who – after moving to New Jersey – no longer practices here.  Dr. Bhimani has provided starkly different reasons for not practicing in New Jersey.

One backstory claims that she stopped practicing medicine so she could get involved in politics and “devote her time to getting Democrats elected throughout Morris County.”  Wow, that’s some kind of idealism… to trade helping people through medicine… for political party politics. Anyway, that’s the backstory on the Morris County Democrat Party website. (

Another backstory is the rather butt-kissing one she provided to Jane Fonda’s Hollywood pal Chelsea Handler, a notorious Pro-Abortionist and a pontificating bore.  Warning: Prepare to cringe…

This backstory, like the one she provided in 2017 as a candidate for the State Senate, revolves around her becoming down with an illness and emerging with a new found political purpose.  It is an old backstory, once used by the Emperor Caligula himself. Here is how it appears on her CROWDPAC page (yes, that’s P-A-C, for political action committee):

“From a young age Lisa was raised to be a fighter for the rights of women.  She campaigned alongside her mother at the age of 6 when the Equal Rights Amendment came through Colorado.  She volunteered on Congresswoman Pat Schroeder's congressional campaign, the first female congresswoman from Colorado…

Lisa moved to NJ in 2004 for her husbands job and shortly thereafter took a position as an OB-Gyn at Overlook Hospital.  Unfortunately she had to cut her career short due to a battle with Lyme disease that changed her life.  She went from working as a doctor to a patient in the ICU over a 2 week period.  She spent a summer in a wheelchair and on a ventilator.  She is much better now.  But this experience solidified her position as a staunch advocate for affordable, universal health care.

Motivated by the election of Trump, after having lived in NJ under the original political bully Governor Christie for 8 years, Lisa decided to run for NJ State Senate.”  (

Ah yes, the story of the phoenix again.  Yes, yes, we do love the concept of old wine in a new bottle, but wait… there’s a third backstory.  

Here is the backstory Dr. Bhimani provided to her alma mater – Brown University.  It is in her words, written by her, provided by her to Brown.

“My road to medicine was less traditional.  After graduating from Brown with a degree in International Relations, I worked for a consulting firm for a year and then decided I wanted to go into medicine.  I completed my pre-med requirements at Bryn Mawr (they have a special program for this) and then attended medical school at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia.  I returned to Brown for my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.  After residency I joined a wonderful, all-female private practice in Providence and practiced at Women and Infants Hospital.  During my third year of residency I had my son, Nicholas, and had my daughter, Bella, about 3 months after completing residency.  My husband Anish (Brown '91 also) was offered his dream job in New York at the end of 2003, and we decided to relocate to New Jersey at that time.  I stopped working when we moved so I could be a mother to the two children I had had during the busiest time of my life.   I had wanted to return to work part-time, but due to the high cost of malpractice insurance in New Jersey, that has not been possible. So, currently I am a full-time stay-home mom.” (

Holy dogshit!  Could it be so?  Could the real reason why Dr. Bhimani doesn’t practice medicine be that the layering of health care mandates in New Jersey has made it impossible for her to do so?  Is Dr. Bhimani’s own Democrat Party the reason for her giving up medicine? Maybe somebody should ask her?

Okay, we will.  Hey Dr. Bhimani, is it so???

While we wait for her answer, kick back and enjoy this anthem of disillusionment with the protest movement and with an elitist ideology that looks down its nose at ordinary Americans…

Blue what? The only NJ Dem legislator elected to Congress was endorsed by the NRA!

There’s a lot to be said for not having a record. 

For a start, you can lie about who you are and what you will do when you get elected.  You can even target your lies to different audiences – like pretending you have a war record and appealing to suburban voters with your anti-tax broadcast advertising, while using your grassroots to find and target liberals with a message especially for them.  That’s how the Democrats did it. 

Republicans… they did it ass backwards.  They invested millions to tell their grassroots to go to hell and then broadcast an explicitly liberal message to those cultural leftists who hate the word “Republican” the most.  And they did it in the midst of the most divisive national election since 2010 – on par with 1994.  They invested even more millions in turning out the very people who loath them – all the while doing their utmost to convince their base that they think of them the same way they think of dog excrement.  See, in this way you lose everybody! 

New Jersey Republicans desperately needed a unified message to take to war in 2018.  After Donald Trump and the GOP leadership in Congress screwed them by passing a tax package that arguably raised property taxes in the state with the worst property tax problem in the nation – somebody should have got everyone in a room to figure out a message.  Hey, it’s a small state so if you don’t want to come off like a cacophony, you’d better all be singing the same tune.

Instead, half argued that screwing with the state’s property tax deduction was a net positive, half said it was a net negative – and the Democrats, they just loved it!  For once, they got to be the party defending the beleaguered property taxpayers of New Jersey.  What passes for the media in New Jersey backed them up on it.  And more importantly, so did the instincts of the average property taxpayer.  Donald Trump or no Donald Trump, when it comes to trusting the promises politicians make about property taxes, they don’t.  Period.  Somebody should have remembered that.

After handing the property tax issue to the Democrats – the issue that has consistently tested as the top concern of New Jersey voters for at least the last decade – it is amazing the NJGOP did as well as it did on November 6th.  A large part of the electorate already hated Donald Trump (and therefore, the Republican brand) and wanted to show it – but by miscalculation, the remainder were granted permission to hate the GOP too… over property taxes!  Gagged and gagged again.

But it wouldn’t have worked so well if the Democrats hadn’t been such clean slates.  Just think of it.  All those Democrats in the Legislature with all those perfect liberal voting records… and the only guy who is acceptable to the electorate to move up and go to Congress is the state’s most conservative Democrat legislator… the one who is endorsed by the NRA.  The one who voted against same-sex marriage.  Heck, Jeff Van Drew is more Pro-Life than many Republicans and has opposed both RGGI and increasing the minimum wage!  But he moved up, and all the rest stayed behind. 

Meanwhile, DC residents Andy Kim and Tom Malinowski simply move into the state, take out six month leases on rental properties, run and win.  And the silly fools who spent years as Democrat committee members, in local governments, running for Freeholder and then for Assembly… they just suck ass.  You can’t get elected because your liberal records won’t let you.

Where did Mikie Sherrill come from?  The “Navy pilot – Prosecutor – Mom” fell out of the sky and landed in Congress.  In the new politics of congressional elections, she’s one of the Houyhnhnm.  Back in the trenches, the time-serving yahoos can only snort and envy her advancement. 

Yesterday, Rutgers put out a new poll showing that – once again – taxes top the state’s issues grid (with a sizeable number volunteering “property” taxes as their big concern).  The Eagleton poll noted that people are generally happy with the state’s economy and, as it is part of a generally buoyant national economy, that shouldn’t surprise anyone, but it does appear Democrat Governor Murphy is taking more credit than the state Republican leaders.  One “research professor” drew attention to “a new phenomenon” of voters not having quite formed an opinion of Phil Murphy, after nearly a year in office.  It’s like they don’t know him and it’s taking some time. (Maybe they will now… after yesterday’s snow job?)

A phenomenon is it?  Why is anyone surprised, given the state of political news coverage in New Jersey?  Just ask anyone on press row… oh, that’s right, it’s not there anymore.  If it’s a national election like we just had, the coverage will be driven by national outlets.  If not… good luck.  And that is something our campaign gurus are going to need to consider when planning what used to be called “earned media” campaigns. 

Meanwhile, back at madness central, a couple of juvenile delinquent Democrat Assemblywomen invited “pro-death penalty for American military members” activist Jane Fonda to place a feather in her patouee and lead a conga line from the Speaker’s office to the Governor’s den.  Not a word yet from Navy pilot Mikie Sherrill about the appropriateness of Fonda’s appearance – or from Andy Kim or Tom Malinowski, for that matter.  But hey Assemblywomen, keep it up.  If that’s the fashion, keep it up and you’ll soon find yourself in… Congress?  NOT!

Democrats piss on Vets… butt kiss traitor Jane Fonda

It figures. But what a way to celebrate last Tuesday!

The servants of corrupt political machines – politicians like Democrat Assemblywoman Britnee Timberlake – have learned to cry “racist” as a way to take the focus off their own bad behavior.  No doubt Timberlake and fellow Democrat Shavonda Sumter will soon be crying “racist” after inviting the infamous traitor and Hollywood One Percenter “Hanoi Jane” Fonda to an event designed to destroy the jobs of thousands of New Jersey workers.

While we have no argument with raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, swapping a minimal wage plus tips for a totally reportable hourly wage might help the government collect more taxes, but it will leave most tipped workers with less real income than they have now.  We don’t expect members of the political class to understand such working class considerations.  Timberlake pockets a six-figure income from two public jobs, Sumter also earns a nice six figure income, and as for Hanoi Jane – that harridan has spent enough on beauty products to provide hot meals to an average-sized school district for an eternity.

Maybe Timberlake and Sumter are too young and ignorant to know better, but once upon a time, their “hero” Ms. Fonda had these kind thoughts about the members of our military who had been captured by the enemies of America:

Yeah, this really happened and it happened in the lifetimes of people who are still alive today.  This isn’t some historical notion.  But hey, these are the Democrats. This is who they are now.

It doesn’t need to be this way.  The Speaker of the Assembly can say something about it. 

So can the Governor…

So can Navy Pilot Mikie Sherrill…

Or Tom “Him Pretty” Malinowski…

Or Andy “winner of the hot cross bun with bar” Kim…

Come on boys (and Navy Pilot Mikie)… Say Something!

Show us that you are more than garden variety soft-core corporate fashionista lefties.  Show us.  We’d love to believe.

Hey Mikie… here are some of your fellow Navy pilots returning home.  Whose side are you on???  The “HERO” of your fellow Democrats would have had them all shot.

Here is the press release the scumbags put out:

Actress and Political Activist Jane Fonda to join Labor, Community, and Legislative Leaders for Policy Briefing on NJ’s Campaign to Raise Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour

Actress and Political Activist Jane Fonda to join Labor, Community, and Legislative Leaders for Policy Briefing on NJ’s Campaign to Raise Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour

NEWARK– New Jersey Working Families Alliance, Restaurant Opportunities Center Action, Rutgers Center for Women and Work, Rutgers Center for for Innovation in Worker Organizing, and Assemblywomen Shavonda Sumter and Britnee Timberlake will host a breakfast and policy briefing on the campaign to raise New Jersey’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. Joining them will be actress and political activist Jane Fonda, who has been a vocal advocate for One Fair Wage, a campaign to raise the minimum wage for all workers by ending the sub-minimum wage for tipped workers across the United States. The organizations expect to have several community and activist leaders from across the state in attendance.

Legislative leaders have pledged to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019. Increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour will lift up the wages of over 1.2 million New Jersey workers and their families. Recently, Assemblywomen Timberlake and Sumter introduced Assembly bills to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour over the course of 5 years and a bill to eliminate the tipped sub-minimum wage over the course of 8 years. The event is open to the press.

WHAT: Breakfast and Policy Briefing on New Jersey’s Fight for $15 with Jane Fonda

WHEN: Thursday, November 15, 2018, 10am-11:30am
