Paramus NJ, Senator Declan O’Scanlon (R-Monmouth) issued a statement following news that New Jersey had missed a federal deadline to begin long-term care vaccinations yesterday.

“While one of the lead stories on most New York news stations over the last two days was celebrating the life-saving commencement of their long term care facility vaccination program – at 10 AM sharp yesterday morning, at 618 facilities – not a word was mentioned about New Jersey. Why? Because New Jersey missed a filing deadline, resulting in a full 7-day delay in the commencement of this unquestionably life-saving program. That shocking and unfathomable reality should make every New Jerseyan sick to their stomach.”

Reader says ,”they took advantage of the Coronavirus situation to deliberately create a killing field in our long-term care facilities”

paramus sign

“Is it the case that some New Jerseyans wished to see our population decrease, starting with the old, and that they took advantage of the Coronavirus situation to deliberately create a killing field in our long-term care facilities?

Decimated: A Roman legion that had a tenth of its men killed in a particular battle was said to have been “decimated,” an indication that the cost in a given conflict in terms of combatant casualties was especially high.

The elderly in our long-term care facilities were literally decimated during the height of this pandemic. And it is still ongoing.

Senator Penacchio is right. We should investigate thoroughly. If we find any intentional wrongdoing, we should not refrain from dragging it out into the light. The same goes for grossly negligent decisions or actions that lead to deaths, of course. But the most important result would be to identify and prosecute high-level decision makers in government or in the hospital administrator or larger healthcare management community who intentionally targeted our elderly (or who cynically targeted those who suffer from comorbidity such as obesity or diabetes, and due to poverty or for cultural reasons tend to rely on hospital emergency rooms for primary health care treatment) for premature death due to a deranged ideological bent verging on modern-day eugenicism.

Don’t think we don’t have people among us who would act this way if they had the chance and believed they could get away with it. We absolutely do.”

Trenton NJ, While the state is lifting some of its coronavirus restrictions today and opening restaurants for limited outdoor dining, Senator Joe Pennacchio raised concerns that the 6,000 nursing home residents who died from COVID-19 are being forgotten.

“If the state doesn’t learn from our mistakes, we will repeat them,” said Pennacchio (R-26). “We know things in our nursing homes went bad in a hurry, and we know that 6,000 vulnerable seniors died in forced isolation, unable to see their families for one last time. We know costly errors were committed, the Administration has been anything but forthcoming, and New Jersey residents have a long laundry list of questions that demand answers.”

Murphy Administration Manipulates Long Term Care COVID-19 death totals

the staff of the Ridgewood blog

River Vale NJ, Assemblywomen Holly Schepisi  comments on the Murphy Administration manipulation of Long Term Care COVID-19 death totals. According to Schepisi ,”1400 deaths have been removed by the State of N.J. between yesterday and today from the total number of COVID deaths from our Long Term Care Facilities because although the deaths appeared to be COVID caused deaths they were never lab confirmed by the facilities.
But even worse, the State is continuing to count these deaths in the overall State total! Today’s total death count was just reported as 10,586 deaths with 162 new deaths. Yesterday’s total death count was 10,435 deaths with 75 new deaths. Friday’s death count was 10,138 deaths. How do we continue to have 10,586 total deaths if we have subtracted out 1400 in the past 24 hours? If DATA DETERMINES DATES the data better make sense.”
