New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy (D) stepped into the hot seat on Wednesday by appearing on Tucker Carlson’s eponymous Fox News program.
Carlson grilled Murphy for his heavy-handed executive orders that have shut down public life throughout his state. Murphy’s responses were very telling and showed what he thinks of the Constitution and his oath of office.
“By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order?” Carlson asked Murphy.
“I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this,” he responded.
“Well I can tell,” Carlson retorted.

Murphy has implied in recent days that this new Soviet-style of governance introduced due to the coronavirus will be the “new normal” moving forward.
“The notion that we’re going to go back to some sort of, let’s just turn the clock back to three months ago, I just don’t see it,” Murphy said during his daily briefing in Trenton on Wednesday. “People talk about a new normal and I think that’s a reality.”
“I don’t know that any time soon we’re going to go back into the — what I love, by the way — big handshake, kiss on the cheek, hug, high fives,” Murphy added. “I just don’t see … a normal gathering in the foreseeable future.”
The governor’s bleak assessment of the future is being echoed by his underlings.
“We use the term resiliency a lot,” said Col. Patrick Callahan, the State Police superintendent. “Some people think that that’s bouncing back, but in this instance, we’re not sure people can ever bounce back so we use the term bouncing forward because none of us … will ever really be the same.”
Murphy has issued 24 executive orders in recent weeks during the coronavirus pandemic. He has implemented a variety of authoritarian measures under the guise of keeping the public safe amidst the crisis.
Murphy implemented “aggressive” social distancing policies on March 16 that shut down most of the economy. He followed that up by delaying certain elections, forcing people to stay in their homes at all times, usurping power from local authorities, allowing for the state to confiscate medical supplies and freeing dangerous criminals from jails. He has made it clear to the people of New Jersey that they must comply with his orders no matter how insane or Draconian they seem.
“Remembering to bring your face covering to the supermarket, or now to pickup your takeout order, may be a hassle,” Murphy said. “But you know what would be really inconvenient? If you ended up in the hospital with COVID-19, or you inadvertently infected a family member.”
To show how serious they are about enforcement, New Jersey authorities even busted up a funeral for a Rabbi earlier this month. Murphy’s thugs treated the bereaved Jewish congregants like common criminals for mourning the death of their religious leader.
Due to the leadership style of power-grabbing Democrat leaders like Murphy, the cure may be worse than the disease by the time the pandemic is through.
Authorities: No New Cases of COVID-19 Came From Memorial Day Partiers at Lake of the Ozarks
The alarmists were wrong again.
Missouri authorities have confirmed that there is no evidence showing that there are any new cases of COVID-19 that occurred due to individuals partying at the Lake of the Ozarks on Memorial Day.
“The answer, to our knowledge, is no,” said Dr. Randall Williams, who works as the director of the Department of Health and Senior Services, after being asked about whether or not the partiers caused a spike in coronavirus cases.
Previously, so-called experts had sounded the alarms, begging people to stay scared, stay indoors, and not live their lives due to fear because of the pandemic.
“We must all continue to remember that the virus hasn’t left us,” Dr. Alex Garza said. “It hasn’t changed. It’s still here. It’s still very contagious and dangerous.”
Garza, who works as the leader of the St. Louis Metropolitan Pandemic Task Force, claimed that the partiers would cause “needless suffering and potential strain to our health care systems” by refusing to cower in fear. As is a familiar refrain throughout the pandemic, the so-called experts were dead wrong.
“We let our guard down or act like the virus is gone,” Garza said, “it will continue to improve the odds of hitting our region again with a second wave and those really hard-fought investments that we’ve made to suppress the curve will be wasted.”
Other members of the government joined in with the hysteria as well. St. Louis County Executive Sam Page issued a travel advisory earlier this week urging “those who ignored protective practices to self-quarantine for 14 days or until testing negative for COVID-19″ and told employers to snoop on their workers and find out what they did while vacationing.
Missouri Governor Mike Parson expressed alarm with the Ozarks partiers, but did not use aggressive enforcement to break up the parties, much to the dismay of the alarmists.
“I’m not going to send the National Guard,” Parson said. “I am not going to send the highway patrol out to monitor this.”
“That’s their business. I trust the people in those positions,” the governor added. “These people are elected to do these positions.”
Parson confirmed at a press conferences that COVID-19 cases are quickly waning. Statewide hospitalizations are down 40 percent over the past month for the virus, as opening society back up has not resulted in the doom that alarmists said it would.
“Our hospitals are not overwhelmed. Our positivity rate continues to decline. People are recovering, and we are moving forward,” he said.
“We are still not sure how UV light (from the sun) will impact the virus,” Dr. Garza admitted. “But presumably it will help decrease transmission.”
The coronavirus pandemic was overhyped by the experts, and the doomsday predictions have not come to pass. It is time to open society back up, end the constant fear propaganda, and allow Americans to get back to work.
