Submitted: Governor Murphy, Where’s The Science?

The Centers for Disease Control and Infection on Friday lifted their guidance regarding quarantining after travel. The CDC said that it was no longer recommending that travelers self-quarantine for 14 days after travel.

But Governor Phil Murphy hasn’t changed anything. After updating its list, New Jersey still has a quarantine advisory for travelers coming in from 31 states and territories.

Since this crazy pandemic began, the governor said he will be guided by science only. Well, the doctors and scientists at the CDC – the top experts in the world – are no longer recommending that travelers self-quarantine. So why is Governor Murphy telling them to?

This isn’t the only instance where our governor appears to be ignoring the scientific data. There is a group of New Jersey Department of Health and New Jersey Department of Human Services officials who accuse Murphy of ignoring the actual scientific data he receives and relies instead on his own gut and political instinct to make decisions relating to coronavirus. They say he has ignored public health officials’ recommendations and looked for data that support his own agenda.

We can see the truth of this just from looking around Lakewood. Tens of thousands of children attended camp this summer in Lakewood. Tens of thousands of children were in close proximity to others. One would think that if coronavirus were still a very serious issue, then it would have exploded again in Lakewood over the summer. It didn’t. Lakewood continues to have a very low number of new infections, and barely any hospitalizations in months.

Did that change the rules for Lakewood? No. They’re still enforced by law enforcement. But why? Why can’t the governor see that a town of 100,000 with massive communal integration and contact with each other hasn’t had any sort of spike in cases in months? Why is the governor enforcing rules that the CDC says aren’t necessary?

I know why and you do too. It’s because he’s not driven by science but rather by political ambition.

  1. I have two answers:

    1. The leftists are interested in science when it helps them and it is THEIR science. When it is someone else’s science or something they disagree with because it doesn’t help them achieve their goal, it’s not science. A perfect example would be the plasma treatments and even the hydroxychloroquine zinc Z-Pak concoction. Since it gets in the way of their control, it’s not science even though it has saved a lot of people.

    2. Governor CuomoMurphy, and Governor MurphyCuomo for that matter, don’t follow the recommendations of the CDC rather they follow the recommendations of the DNC.

  2. If you really think that we should be following CDC then follow them completely, Last I checked they said that you should wear masks and social distance. The governor picks and choose which CDC guidance to follow just like the rest of this town. You just do not like his choices.

  3. It is hidden from public view. It is thoroughly researched. It has been for decades. It is well hidden. It has nothing to you with ethical medicine. It is extremely well funded. It feeds on fear and panic and the goal is subjugation and death. Hopefully, the curtains will be opened before election day. If Trump does not get elected, God forbid, evil will prevail across the globe. Pray every chance you get. Be courteous, respectful, and kind at every opportunity that God sends you.

  4. Let the governor continue to be guided by science. WE YIDDEN WILL CONTINUE TO BE GUIDED BY HASHEM!!! & ONLY HASHEM!!!. A MAZELDIG 5781 TO ALL KLAL YISRAEL!!!.

  5. Welcome to the dishonest and corrupt generation. Yes I’m ashamed to be living in such a generation….

    This corrupt democratic governor Murphy is only keeping these rules and policies and making sure that their kept by everyone so he and his crony Democrats can hold everyone down until after elections. He prays and hopes that everyone just won’t vote at all or just by mail in vote. But we republican will not stand for this corruption and make sure to get out and vote in person at a machine.

    May Trump win the election and continue to be Hashems shliach to run the united States. Cause in truth the entire world is run by Hashem and it has already been decided who will win the elections but we all need to do our hishtadlus

  6. It is all about power. His policies killed thousands in nursing homes and is being investigated by the DOJ along with the other 3 Democrat run states which had the same murderous policy to force nursing homes to accept sick people even though they didn’t have a way to protect everyone else from them. His spokesperson is claiming this is a political investigation because it only requests nursing home death data from 4 democrat run states, when the reason that is so is because only those 4 states had that murderous policy. The democrats don’t believe in science unless it conforms to their opinion that is why thousands of health professionals said protesting lockdowns and going to religious services is killing grandma but protesting for BLM is good and doesn’t spread covid. It is all about the politics and trying to defeat President Trump in November.
