    New Jersey added 10 states and removed one from its coronavirus quarantine travel advisory on Tuesday, bringing the list to 31 states that qualify as COVID-19 hotspots. People traveling from those states — including New Jersey residents returning home — are being asked to voluntarily self-quarantine for two weeks and to seek a coronavirus test in an effort to prevent a resurgence in New Jersey, which was among the hardest hit states at the onset of the U.S. outbreak in March and April. Alaska, Delaware, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Virginia and Washington were added this week, while...
  • COVID-19: The Nursing Home Disease

    06/24/2020 4:04:09 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 21 replies ^ | June 24, 2020 | Phil Kerpen
    I recently testified before the House Select Coronavirus Subcommittee on the meltdown in nursing homes, which excluding New York (which deliberately underreports) now account for over 55 percent of deaths with COVID. The House Democrats' goal was to blame these high death rates on President Trump - but the blame should belong squarely to the handful of governors who presided over these disasters. More than 60 percent of both nursing home deaths and total COVID-19 deaths occurred in just seven blue states with about 20 percent of the U.S. population: New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Michigan....

    Nearly half of all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States have occurred at nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, according to new reports. The rate of cases to deaths from such facilities has been disproportionate: while only 11 percent of positive cases – around 282,000 – have occurred at nursing homes and long-term care facilities, about 43 percent of deaths – or 54,000 deaths – have come from the same, the New York Times reported. The Times cited its database for the numbers, arguing that some states and the federal government have not provided comprehensive data. The...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said Sunday there should be a “national requirement” that everyone wear face masks amid the coronavirus. “It’s become almost not even debatable,” the governor told NBC TV’s “Meet the Press.” “Certainly when you’re going out and absolutely indoors. As I mentioned, this virus is a lot more lethal inside than outside. But if you’re leaving your house, put on a mask. I think it ought to be a national, a national requirement.”

    NJ Primary Election | Vanity
    New Jersey is holding its primary today, in which the default is to vote by mail. Anyone voting in person must fill out a provisional ballot. And the provisional ballot requires your drivers license number. So voting in person now requires Voter ID, you fill out a lengthy form, and vote with a paper ballot. Normal voting in person does not exist. I've heard for years that Voter ID is a republican plot which suppresses minority Voters. But now it's required if you want to vote in person. I'm hearing numerous reports of people voting in person and telling the...

    New Jersey’s governor tried to be understanding Tuesday when the state’s Motor Vehicle Commission offices reopened – with long lines and arguments among customers following a long coronavirus-related shutdown. But many New Jerseyans posting on social media seemed to think Gov. Phil Murphy, a Democrat, could have done more to prevent the problems.

    Gov. Phil Murphy says he has no patience for critics who say he’s acting like a dictator as he orders sweeping restrictions during the coronavirus pandemic — a charge that renewed with his recent order to wear masks outdoors. “People claiming that power’s gone to my head, that I find some joy in making everyone put a face covering on is ludicrous,” Murphy said Thursday night on NJTV. “It’s also irresponsible.” “Let’s cut that crap out,” he added. “Let’s stick to the basics and the facts, and we’ll be a lot better for it.” Murphy made the comments a day...

    Newark, N.J. ‘To all the jackasses out there who we now have to carry—get with the program,” Gov. Phil Murphy fulminated on Twitter April 6. “We know who you are and we will not relent until we have 100% compliance.” On May 2 he added: “ATTN KNUCKLEHEADS: KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE #FlattenTheCurve.” But New Jersey relented on Saturday as thousands massed in the streets of Newark, the state’s most populous city. While many protesters did avail themselves of masks, standing 6 feet apart—as per the state’s oft-repeated guidelines—was impossible. Mr. Murphy’s prohibition on “outdoor gatherings” was still in effect, although...

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy will announce Monday that all public and private schools in the state will remain closed for the rest of the academic year, POLITICO has learned. Murphy will make the announcement at his daily briefing — scheduled for noon in Trenton — alongside state Education Commissioner Lamont Repollet, according to a statement from the governor’s office obtained by POLITICO. “This is a difficult decision and I know that many students, parents, and staff would like to be able to return to school,” Murphy said in the statement. “However, I have been unwavering on the message that...

    ...Bundy naturally just disavowed the militia movement in solidarity with the migrant caravan, suggested that nationalism is actually the opposite of patriotism, and said that Trump’s America resembles nothing so much as 1930s Germany. Last week, Bundy posted a video to Facebook in which he criticized President Trump for demonizing the Central American migrants who were traveling in a caravan to seek asylum in the United States. “To group them all up like, frankly, our president has done — you know, trying to speak respectfully — but he has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in...

    A 10ft statue of a bear has been ordered to be removed from a roadside - after a scared woman driver blamed it for causing a crash. The wooden grizzly bear has guarded Britain's smallest town of Llanwrtyd Wells, population 850, for more than 15 years as a roadside landmark. But safety chiefs demanded it be taken away from the Mid-Wales town after a woman feared the wooden animal was real - and she careered off the road into a signpost.

    DAYTONA BEACH — A Daytona Beach father who walked in on a man sexually battering his 11-year-old son Friday said he did what he had a right to do and beat the man unconscious leaving him in a puddle of blood, according to a 9-1-1 call.

    After first lady Michelle Obama jokingly referred to young people as "knuckleheads" on the "Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon on Friday, one boy decided to respond. Tanya Bachand, a mom who identified herself on Twitter as a Connecticut conservative and Tea Party supporter, tweeted out a photo of her son holding a sign in response. Dear #FLOTUS, I am not a knucklehead. I can read and I understand the Constitution," the message read. "#LetsMove on to shrinking the government so I can secure my own future."

    She said this...see it here.In fairness (as if she deserves it) she was saying young people need health insurance because of the things they do that would ultimately require medical attention. She's not saying they're knuckleheads for not buying into Obamacare (that argument comes next as the law continues to collapse).Honestly, she doesn't deserve this benefit of the doubt because it's actually just another example of how government (for which she is speaking on behalf of) views us as infantile cattle that need to be herded and "cared" for, and that SHE and her ilk must do the caring.Maybe what...

    PHILADELPHIA – President Barack Obama said Tuesday night he believed the majority of Americans were not closely following the ups and downs of the presidential campaign. Obama, who attended six fundraisers in Baltimore and Philadelphia on Tuesday, has not had a good start to June after coming under fire for saying "the private sector is doing fine" during a news conference last Friday. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia on Tuesday night, Obama said he believed the good news is that the American people agree with his campaign's policies of moving the country forward. "They're not...

    Juan Williams accuses Palin of being defensive and making shooting about herself. On the day after Sean Hannity’s first TV interview with Sarah Palin in the wake of the Arizona shooting, her critics (who won’t be swayed no matter what) are turning out in droves to discredit her simply out of spite and ideology. On Fox News, perhaps none may be more so inclined at the moment than one Juan Williams, who appeared on the same program to “analyze” what he thought of Palin’s sympathetic reasoning. In his mind, her Hannity interview showed her as being overly defensive and obsessed...

    Potential GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says Sarah Palin’s wrong and Michelle Obama’s right, at least when it comes to the first lady’s push to combat childhood obesity. “With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin, I think she's misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do,” the former Arkansas governor said Tuesday on the “Curtis Sliwa Show.”
