President Trump has approved a Major Disaster Declaration for the state of New Jersey as the number of coronavirus cases in the state experienced a dramatic increase on Thursday.

Gov. Phil Murphy stated the disaster declaration provides more money to the state to help residents who are impacted by the pandemic. There have been nineteen additional coronavirus-related deaths, bringing the total for New Jersey up to 81.

Murphy also reported that 2,492 new cases have popped up, bringing the current total so somewhere around 6,876. A total of 19,364 residents have been tested for the virus with 6,137 having tested positive, giving them a rate of 31.7 percent.

Another “gut-punch” reported by the governor were high unemployment numbers. The number of New Jersey residents who filed for unemployment was 16 times the number that filed the week before at 155,000.

The state is maintaining a website listing jobs available from essential employers. Three hundred essential employers have listed 35,000 jobs, Murphy said. The site went online Monday and 230,000 people visited, Murphy said.

This just goes to show you how devastating this virus can be, not only on the folks who are getting ill, but on an entire state’s economy and job market.

Murphy went on to say that the citizens of the state of New Jersey were going to have to be in this for the long haul, noting it could take weeks in order to start seeing a real impact made from the social distancing measures being put into place.

The governor also responded to rumors that the school systems were planning to reopen soon, saying the decision rests with him, and that they were not prepared to address the issue again until at least April 17 at the earliest.

This is the new world we live in now, folks. It’s getting scary out there.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Makes Prediction On When He Thinks COVID-19 Vaccine Will Be Ready

Published

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading expert on infectious diseases, recently stated that he believes a vaccine for the coronavirus will be fully tested, prepared, and effective to use by the end of the year. Whether or not folks on the left want to hear this is another story. If you look at the major breakthroughs that have happened lately in regard to the virus, it seems as if Democrats actually want this pandemic and the restrictions with it, to stick around for a lot longer. This probably has something to do with the presidential election in November. via Daily Wire: “I would still put my money on November, December,” Fauci said at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel, CNN reported. Fauci, an immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who serves on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said testing a vaccine requires about 150 subjects to actually get the virus. “Right now, the trials are over two thirds enrolled – really close to full enrollment on one, and over full enrollment on the other,” he said. “It really depends on where the sites are and how many infections there are in a site. So you could get your answer sooner, or you can get your answer a bit later.” “Fauci said his projection of November or December is informed by calculations based on where the clinical trial sites are in their studies,” CNN said in its report. President Trump stated earlier in the week that new plans are underway from the Department of Defense working in tandem with health agencies, to ensure that every single American can get the vaccine for free, once it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Agencies in the government are eyeing January as the target date…

As November Election Draws Near, NRA Reveals It Raised More In August Than Any Month In 2016

Published

on

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund, which is a political action committee that is associated with the pro-second amendment organization, ended up raising more than $1.7 million in the month of August, completely annihilating its August 2016 totals and raising more cash than any month ahead of the election held that year. One has to wonder how much the riots, looting, and violence that has spread across the country has had to do with that? You know, the fact that people are now wide awake to the reality that the left isn’t going to be there to help them or manage the chaos exploding around them, is an effective promotion of the importance of gun rights. via Fox News: The $1,725,700 the organization raised in August is almost $240,000 higher than its best month of 2016, March, when it raised just under $1.5 million. The NRA’s PAC pulled in $1.4 million in August 2016. “The NRA is grateful to our members and gun owners for a record-breaking August,” NRA spokeswoman Amy Hunter told Fox News. “Americans step up when their rights are in danger, and they’re stepping up now because they know the stakes of this election couldn’t be higher.” Hunter added that its August fundraising total “is proof that people want to protect their gun rights and their right to self-defense, and that they trust and depend on the NRA to protect these rights and freedoms.” This massive increase in fundraising is happening as the November election, which is a showdown between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, draws nearer and nearer. Both individuals have very different stances on this issue, with Trump being very pro-gun and Biden being the polar opposite. The August numbers pulled in by the NRA are the highest it has brought…
