New Jersey just reached a grim milestone at 3,000 deaths per million residents. If measured against all the countries in the world, it would be 3rd highest after only Hungary & Peru.
Meanwhile the Goldman Sachs alum posing as dictator of that state jets off to his villa in Italy to take a break from the destruction he’s caused.
Phil Murphy is up for reelection this year. He’s the only governor in the country running for reelection. New Jersey is the 11th most populated in state in the USA and is located in the biggest media market in the world, yet for some reason the media seem wholly uninterested in this election. The vast majority of people outside of NJ probably have no idea who he is. I wonder why.
I expect it will be called for a huge Democrat victory about 5 minutes after polls closed. Most voters will have cast their ballots weeks before election day.
RIP New Jersey. Much of the state was actually a nice place to live before Phil Murphy’s reign of terror.
MLB famously decided to move its midsummer classic from a majority black city to a majority white city to show how much it cares about black people. Except that makes no sense. The real reason was because their commissioner wanted to suck up to Democrat politicians.
Well they had record low viewership last night Hopefully they’ll get the message that acting as a propaganda outlet for one of the major political parties is not good for business. Or maybe, like the tech firms, they don’t care and will just double down so that the left wing press will tell them how great their sport is now that no one watches it anymore.
At least they seem to have dropped most of their COVID theater. For now. Let’s see what happens next time the politicians ratchet up their fear campaign.
Don’t worry Joe. They have to hype the negative and right now the Republicans are so irrelevant that falls on you.
But don’t despair. All next year will be about how evil the GOP is and how Trump is Hitler again and secretly planning another insurrection, etc. etc.
2 Weeks after the state of emergency for COVID expired in New York, The tyrant running that state declared a new one to combat gun violence. Apparently we will be in a permanent state of emergency now. Once one “emergency” expires, they’re ready with a new one.
It’s also interesting how everything is a “public health crisis” now:
Cuomo pressed the case that gun violence is on par with the pandemic and must also be treated as a public health crisis.
Apparently this is the terminology they’ll use rather than “declaring war” on everything like they did in the last century.
This is what happens when you give the most powerful government in history the ability to create money out of thin air. You get politicians handing out money to insanely wealthy supporters.
Hamilton will receive up to $50 million in coronavirus relief. This despite grossing $650 million before on Broadway alone. Broadway, in general, has gone along with all the insane Democrat lockdown policies. Now we know why. They were promised loot from the Feds to make up for it.
Remember this type of thing when your grocery bill keeps getting higher or it costs you $20 more to fill up your tank than this time last year.
We’ll have to wait and see what comes of this investigation, but it appears this may have been an instance of a cop being way too nervous about a routine traffic stop. So he killed a high school kid for the crime of exiting his vehicle which scared the officer. No word on what race the cop was.
Anyway, I believe now is when we’ll see the BLM protests, the condemnation from Biden and every other Democrat, the pearl clutching on MSNBC and CNN, and of course riots in every major city.
Oh wait, no. We’ll likely never hear about this again after today. This is just a “local story” after all. Maybe if you live in Little Rock the local Fox affiliate will follow up in a few months to let you know that the shooting was justified and the family of this kid will get a big settlement at taxpayer expense.
Phil Murphy, a Goldman Sachs bankster born and raised in Massachusetts and currently Governor of NJ, has decided to be the only tyrant left in America still requiring people to mask up and pretend it does something other than show compliance to his tyranny.
“The majority of New Jerseyans are still unvaccinated, and keeping this mandate in place in public settings protects you, your family, essential workers, and our entire community,”
He says this without having to show evidence that masks have done anything to stop the spread of COVID. It’s just a given now that masks work. Strange that no one ever tried this before over thousands of years of human civilizations grappling with airborne diseases.
“All of our metrics show one thing – at this moment together, we are as good if not better than any state in America in winning this war,”
He says this as if he cares about his subjects and has done a great job “protecting” them from the scary virus. Although if you want to check on a thing called reality, NJ has THE WORST DEATH RATE IN THE WORLD behind only Hungary. Literally only one country on the entire planet has done a worse job than this bastard who intentionally spread COVID in nursing homes back in March 2020.
He’s also in the process of getting his dictatorial powers certified by the legislature so he can drop his phony State of Emergency while still forcing residents to bend their knee to any edict he wishes to impose on them, no matter how absurd or counterproductive.
You’d think the opposition party would want to oppose him. And they do. Here’s a quote from some guy named Michael Testa who is supposedly a Republican state senator:
“With the CDC clearly stating that masks serve no public health purpose, Pennsylvania, New York and many other states have already lifted restrictions or announced plans to do so this week,” Testa added. “Instead of following the science here in New Jersey, we have a governor who continues to restrict personal freedoms to cater to the irrational fears of a timid liberal constituency.”
The second half of that is fine I suppose, and basically true. However, anyone who actually values “personal freedoms” should not be citing the CDC to justify their attacks on these tyrannical despots that have made our lives miserable for the past 14 months. The CDC was backing up these lockdowns and mask mandates until a few days ago. If you attack your opponents for not following their guidelines now, then the next time they whip the media and public into a frenzy about some new disease, you’ll have no argument against following whatever insane policies the Tony Faucis of the world prescribe to fight it.
The CDC should be abolished, and at the State and local level ignored and ridiculed. Put that in the Republican platform if you actually want to inspire anyone. But as usual, the GOP will be outmaneuvered and cede 99% of the argument to their Democrat colleagues. Republicans love being professional losers. It pays well.
Because they have people in power that defend them no matter what.
A Leftist can try to massacre a group of Republicans and Democrats will call for more gun control.
Leftists can riot, loot, and burn private businesses for months on end and Democrats will claim they were “peaceful.“
But when right winters dare enter the Holy Temple of Democracy while the Democrats are in the process of coronating their new Emperor, well most Republicans (and most “respectable” Libertarians) can’t wait to issue statements condemning the violence and throwing their own supporters to the wolves. You hear barely a peep about the coming crackdowns on dissent. They’re more scared of being the next target of a Leftist 2 Minute Hate than they are of the actual authoritarianism being implemented right in front of their faces.
Here are the cold heart facts about our politicians and their hangers-on in the media and think tanks.
- Most Democrats care only about power and are fine with being hypocritical. They simply don’t care. They will throw their hypocrisy in your face and laugh.
- Most Republicans care more about being perceived as “fair-minded” than about actually stopping progressive politics from being forced on their voters. They condemned BLM riots so they have to immediately condemn anything bad MAGA does. This plays right into the Left’s hands because they can paint all opposition as Nazis or white supremacists and sit back while all Republicans can do is condemn those same people in slightly less harsh tones.
- Most Republicans hate their own voters. They got into politics for their own personal aggrandizement and because of where they were born or who their parents were the GOP opened up more opportunities for advancement than the Democrats. That’s the only reason they’re Republicans in the first place. They don’t give a shit about the actual working-class Americans that make up their base.
I’m not exactly trying to justify the storming of the Capitol Building because I think it’s counterproductive and I don’t actually support it. The State will use it to further punish dissent.
But it’s worth understanding why it happened.
The number one issue is the lockdowns. In their never-ending lust for power, the ruling elite in this country has stripped millions of people of their livelihoods, their friends, their extended families, and any other outlet to focus their energy on (sports, entertainment, church, etc.) People have become isolated and super focused on politics. Many in DC right now probably think they have nothing to lose and (mistakenly) believe Trump is their only hope. All this to unsuccessfully fight a disease that mainly affects the sick and elderly. Some kind of blowback from this disastrous policy was inevitable.
People have lost faith in our elections. In the name of fighting COVID most states completely overhauled the way their citizens can vote. Millions of more ballots were cast than ever before, most through the mail. This was ripe for abuse and fraud and half the country, rightly or wrongly believe this election was stolen.
The Deep State has been trying to undermine Trump since before his inauguration. They accused him of being a Russian agent based on lies, locked up many of his trusted allies, and even impeached him for a phone call where he asked for an investigation of someone who was already being investigated. His supporters obviously don’t feel their choice for President was ever given an opportunity to govern.
The Media, Democrat party (or do I repeat myself) and Hollywood has spent the last 5 years telling half the country that they’re stupid, racist, deplorables because they didn’t support the policies preferred by our ruling class. Not exactly a message intended to bring unity.
And finally, the Media, Democrats, and Hollywood all celebrated left-wing violence throughout the summer in the name of fighting racism. They shamed and in some cases prosecuted people who tried to protect themselves. If you support one mob, don’t be surprised when another mob forms to fight back.
