Gov. Phil Murphy on Friday continued to say all options are “on the table” when it comes to fighting the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in New Jersey—but he also suggested it’s irresponsible to close indoor dining or nonessential retail stores without more federal aid. The Democratic governor took aim at a favorite target, Republican U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, as federal lawmakers in Washington remain deadlocked over a new stimulus package. Democrats want a $2.2 trillion bill, while Republicans prefer $500 billion with no aid to state and local government. “As long as Mitch McConnell is sitting on his hands

Shut everything down, and the Federal Reserve will print enough money to keep the economy afloat until the dollar is fully worthless. At the same time, the border is wide open! Eliminate the disease, and within minutes it will stroll across the border and we're back to Square One. Thanks, China.

Ok! Let’s see...close down all the tax paying businesses and people! Then give those people money that you don’t have so they can pay it all back with higher taxes in a year or two or ten! Yup! Makes perfect sense to a Commie Socialist Moron!

Very typical of a Democrat; Give me more money please, so I can waste it on all of my friends. I've posted this before, but wherever our tax dollars go, there should also be an HONEST person to MAKE SURE, (a disbursement officer), the monies go where they are supposed to go and that person keeps a record where every penny spent goes.

So don’t shut it down, idiot. It has been proven endlessly over the last 9 months that shut downs and masks don’t work. If they did, the virus would have died out back in May.

Democrat Governors (and Mike DeWine) stop being mini dictators. Let us live at our own risk again. Open everything up, or watch initially, the complete collapse of every thing in the entertainment industries, restaurants, movie theaters, live stage productions, and live music until all that is left area few grocery stores and maybe a Walmart here and there.

That is the real purpose of "stimulus money". It's a general bribe to keep the proles from revolting as their jobs as waiters, cooks and baristas come and go with the political whims "following the science". No stimulus and there would have been an end to this tyranny long ago.

The only essential thing for democrats is that the taxpayers of America pay for the aftermath of the burning and looting of major dem cities that they allowed to happen. If the financed rebuilding does not happen, their little children in BLM and Antifa are going to throw another tantrum and this time the lying, scheming democrats will be the target of their misbehavior. Pelosi's home in Sin Francisco will not survive this time. No wonder Old Joe has thrown a big hush blanket on his dealings with BLM.

Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a prominent ally of President Donald Trump, said Sunday it was time for him to concede the race to President-elect Joe Biden.

Joe Biden shouldn’t let the “We Just Did 46” hat go to his head. When the 78-year-old President-elect debuted the chapeau via wife Jill’s social media Nov. 7, supporters reveled in his apparent retort to Donald Trump’s iconic fire-engine red “Make America Great Again” cap. The Biden hats—which refer to his soon becoming the 46th president—are currently being hawked on Amazon for as high as $25.95 and online e-commerce websites like Etsy, but they aren’t being sold by the official Team Joe store. “‘We Just Did’ is not a campaign slogan.

Washington—Two Michigan state legislators headed to the White House on Friday as President Donald Trump made an extraordinary and sure-to-be futile attempt to block Joe Biden's victory in the battleground state and subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election. The state has yet to certify its results for Biden, who won Michigan by more than 154,000 votes, according to unofficial results. Trump and his allies have been trying to convince judges and lawmakers in the state to set aside the popular vote and swap in Republican-chosen electors.

Major concerns were mounting today over whether Britain will be ready for Boris Johnson's 'ambitious' plans to ban gas boilers in all new-build homes by 2023, after the target was brought forward by two years. The proposal was branded 'impossible' because just two hydrogen boiler prototypes exist, a fifth of the pipe network still needs to be relaid and every engineer will be retrained. The ban on methane gas boilers means new homes must have low-carbon alternatives, such as electric heat pumps or hydrogen boilers—but it has surprised many homebuilders who had been working towards a deadline of 2025.

Donohue said in a statement that Trump 'should not delay the transition a moment longer.'

When President Trump refused to concede the election to Joe Biden in the immediate aftermath of Nov. 3, we argued that he had the right to mount legal challenges if he believed there had been irregularities, mistakes, fraud, or all three. Democratic objections and outrage were as hypocritical as they were inevitable, coming as they did from a corps that refused to accept the 2016 election result not for days, weeks, or even months, but for four years. But although fair-minded people know there are legitimate procedures for litigation, and that these should be allowed to play out, there is also wisdom in the phrase, “put up or shut up.”

Yet it’s possible, nay probable, that the fabricated hysteria over COVID-19 virus will make – indeed already is making – people reject injections. Why? Because authorities have lost their trust regarding everything to do with the virus. If they can’t trust them over cases and deaths, why trust them over safety and efficacy of vaccines. Indeed, polls show a steady decline in those who said they would immediately receive a coronavirus vaccine, only 58% of Americans in the latest survey.
