A lot of great info in the NJGOP’s latest newsletter so we wanted to pass it on:
A Message From NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt
Good afternoon everyone,
I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during these difficult times.
Earlier this week on Tucker Carlson, while discussing the various public gatherings the Governor has banned, Governor Phil Murphy stated that, “I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this.” When asked again, “By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this [congregation] order,” Murphy responded, “That’s above my pay grade, Tucker.”
In New Jersey, there is no elected state office above Governor. The buck stops there. The NJGOP is calling on the New Jersey legislature to convene and exercise the checks and balances needed to measure Governor Murphy’s executive power.
The Bill of Rights is not a science experiment; on that there is no compromise. Those rights have endured over 200 years and they will endure this pandemic. Contrary to the Governor’s thinking, protecting New Jerseyans’ constitutional rights is not above the his pay grade.
We are in uncharted territory as a country, and it is testing the limits of elected leaders everywhere. The fundamental fabric that constitutes the Bill of Rights is constructed of individual fibers each as important as the other. No right is elevated above another and forsaking one right is forsaking all of them. The NJGOP calls on the Senate and Assembly to convene and exercise the checks and balances needed to measure the Governor’s powers.

The world deserves a better, totally transparent and accountable WHO
By Congressman Chris Smith
Seventy-two years ago, this week—on April 7, 1948—the World Health Organization (WHO) was founded to organize global responses to infectious disease pandemics that respect no national boundaries.
Its effectiveness depends heavily on the good will of its member states, and the competence and trustworthiness of its leadership.
