Rand Paul questions Assistant Health Secretary nominee (and trans person) Dr. Rachel Levine. As you watch this (and as Levine refuses to answer Senator Paul) remember that Rand Paul is a physician and doctor of ophthalmology.
“Governor Murphy has touted his ‘partnership’ and ‘teamwork’ with Governor Cuomo and proclaimed that they were ‘synchronizing plans’ throughout the pandemic. Given what we now know about Governor Cuomo’s reprehensible and potentially illegal conduct, it’s critical that New Jerseyans – especially the loved ones of those who died in our nursing homes – know each and every detail about the conversations and communications between the two Governors and their Administrations related to this growing scandal,” said Ciattarelli.
A week after President Joe Biden stirred controversy by saying China has “different norms” toward human rights, half of voters view Biden’s China policy as worse than former President Trump’s.
McCollum also repeats her false defamation about Israel’s arrests of terrorists at Amnesty International events, the House floor, and at other events.
McCollum is a major promoter of the antisemitic anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) – and has been nicknamed “BDS Betty.” In October 2018, McCollum received a “leadership award” from the main BDS group in the United States – the U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR), at their annual conference. During her acceptance speech, McCollum falsely accused Israel of “apartheid.” (“U.S. Representative Accuses Israel of ‘Apartheid’,” Jerusalem Post, Oct. 15, 2018.)

The plethora of problems facing New Jersey would lead any sensible person to conclude that the state is broken -- terribly broken.
Is the situation as hopeless as it seems?
New Jersey State Senator Anthony M. Bucco expressed shock at Governor Phil Murphy’s suggestion at his press briefing today that investing funds to fix the State’s broken unemployment system would be “throwing good money after bad.”
The governor then suggested that he believed New Jersey should wait for the federal government to rebuild the unemployment system on their end, saying, “I don’t want to waste money in the meantime.”
“It defies belief that Governor Murphy would say it’s a ‘waste’ of money to fix our unemployment system for those who need quick access to the benefits they earned to survive,” said Bucco (R-25). “It’s shocking that the governor is willing to sit back and wait while people are suffering when there’s no indication that federal action is on the horizon.”
Governor Murphy proposed appropriating just $7.75 million in his FY 2022 budget for unemployment system fixes. According to published reports, the New Jersey Department of Labor believes it needs $200 million for a full upgrade of the system.
“Governor Murphy has a multi-billion dollar surplus already banked and is likely to get another $6 billion in federal aid in the coming weeks,” added Bucco. “He’s proposing to increase spending by nearly 10%, but investing in unemployment system upgrades is where he suddenly draws the line. It’s an insult to every New Jerseyan.”
Bucco discussed the importance of funding a modernization of the unemployment computer system in an NJ.com editorialpublished on Saturday.
