TRENTON, NJ – For weeks, Shore News Network has been warning New Jersey residents that back door in the bill signed by Governor Phil Murphy to officially end the pandemic had a trojan horse that would soon give the governor back his pandemic powers.
- Governor Murphy danger close to trigger that would allow a new mask mandate, forced lockdown
- NJ COVID-19 Rate of Transmission nears level that would reestablish Murphy’s pandemic executive powers
- Murphy post-pandemic power grab in trouble after Dems pull Murphy’s Law extension bill
- Governor Murphy’s pandemic emergency powers to end in June…but there’s a big catch
Most in the New Jersey media stopped paying attention once the bill was signed into law, but this past week, the trigger necessary for Murphy to have his pandemic powers reinstated his been pulled. With an RT above 1 across the state, Governor Phil Murphy now has his pandemic power and now, state legislators fear he’s going to use those powers and the COVID-19 delta variant to impose martial law across the state once again.
The law automatically invokes his authority. There are no hearings. There aren’t any debates. Nothing has to be signed. As Andrew Cuomo says, “It is what it is”.
Finally, another media outlet, NJ101.5 has taken notice.
