Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez apparently blames Trump for the fact that New York and New Jersey forced nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. And she apparently doesn’t know that Florida’s sunshine is good for your immune system. And she apparently thinks Florida’s death rate is higher than New York’s and New Jersey’s.

Wow!

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez gets so many different things wrong in the video below.

As I have explained here and here, New York and New Jersey both required nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. This caused the disease to spread, and infect, and kill, a huge number of people who lived in these nursing homes. This constitutes mass murder.

But instead of blaming this mass murder on New York and New Jersey, Ocasio-Cortez apparently blames it on Trump.

And as I explained here, Florida banned nursing homes from admitting patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. This saved a huge number of lives.

But instead of praising Florida’s actions, Ocasio-Cortez criticizes the state.

Ocasio-Cortez also apparently doesn’t understand that the sunshine at Florida’s beaches helps people’s bodies to generate vitamin D, and that this helps to protect them from COVID-19.

Also, Ocasio-Cortez apparently doesn’t seem to understand that just about every single mass outbreak of COVID-19 that has been documented, happened inside.

And Ocasio-Cortez apparently thinks that Florida’s death rate is higher than New York’s and New Jersey’s.

But here are the real numbers. COVID-19 deaths per 1 million population, as of May 17, 2020. Source: https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/us/

New York: 1,446

New Jersey: 1,155

Florida: 92

Likewise, the Palm Beach Post reported the following rates of elder-care resident deaths per 100,000 people, as of May 13, 2020:

New York: nearly 27

New Jersey: 51

Florida: 3.5

But I’m not surprised. Time and time and time and time and time and time again, Ocasio-Cortez has proven herself to be completely ignorant when it comes to anything involving numbers.

New York and New Jersey required nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19. Meanwhile, Florida prohibited nursing homes from admitting such patients. The different results of these different policies are exactly what you would expect. And in my opinion, what New York and New Jersey did constitutes mass murder.

New York and New Jersey required nursing homes to admit patients who had tested positive for COVID-19.

NPR reported:

New York and New Jersey both have ordered nursing homes to admit patients regardless of their COVID-19 status.

In my opinion, this policy constitutes mass murder.

Nursing home patients are elderly. And they have major health conditions. No one is more vulnerable to dying from COVID-19 than people in nursing homes.

Ordering nursing homes to admit patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 is an extremely mean, dumb, stupid, irrational, irresponsible, and insane thing to do.

Florida did the opposite. It prohibited patients who had tested positive for COVID-19 from being put in nursing homes.

The Palm Beach Post reported:

Coronavirus Florida: DeSantis: Florida nursing homes safer than other states

With COVID-19 cases ravaging nursing homes across the state, Gov. Ron DeSantis went on the defensive Wednesday, insisting Florida has done more to protect the elderly than most other states.

Pointing to charts that showed that Florida has had far fewer deaths per capita than New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and even Colorado, DeSantis insisted that the state’s strategy to protect those most at risk for the deadly disease has worked.

“Florida’s approach was to avoid introducing the disease into long-term care facilities,” he said at news conference from the Capitol. “We drew a firm red line.”

State health officials on Wednesday reported that 776 nursing home residents and staff have died of COVID-19, including 83 in Palm Beach County. But, DeSantis insisted the number is low, considering Florida is the third most populous state in the nation and has a high concentration of senior citizens.

Criticizing New York, which he also blames for bringing the coronavirus into Florida, DeSantis said the Empire State initially required nursing homes to take COVID-19-infected patients from hospitals to free up needed critical care beds.

That allowed the virus to spread among New York’s most frail citizens, he said.

In contrast, DeSantis prohibited Florida hospitals from discharging patients with the disease to the state’s 4,400 long-term care facilities, which are home to 150,000 residents and employ 200,000 people.

That policy, he said, is one of the key reasons an average of only two elder-care residents per 100,000 people have died in Florida since the pandemic began in mid-March. The actual number is 3.5 per 100,000.

In New Jersey, out of every 100,000 people in the state, 51 nursing home resident have died. In New York, nearly 27 have died. Even Colorado, which has had a comparatively low 1,067 deaths, more than 10 nursing home residents have died per capita.

And as a result, Florida’s rate of death in nursing homes is far, far, lower than New York’s or New Jersey’s.

The Palm Beach Post reported the following rates of elder-care resident deaths per 100,000 people:

Florida: 3.5

New York: nearly 27

New Jersey: 51

Florida did a far, far better job than New York and New Jersey.

And I still maintain my claim that what New York and New Jersey did constitutes mass murder.

New Jersey Bans Looking At Flowers While Driving

New Jersey Bans Looking At Flowers While Driving

Viewing Flowers from Inside a Vehicle is a Subversive Activity

April 20, 2020

Comrades, let this serve as a warning to like-minded subversives who would attempt to defy the lock-down orders of Commissar Phil Murphy. If wrong-thoughts continue to be expressed, it may become necessary for the Ministry of Coronavirus Compliance to deduct 500 credits from your social compliance score. Please do not put the Ministry in the position of having to make such decisions. Compliance is in your best interest.

In the latest example of Blue State enforcement of unilateral decrees by a state governor, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy bans driving through Tulip farms.   Yes, New Jersey, looking at flowers from inside your vehicle is a subversive activity against the interests of the state….  Non-compliance will not be tolerated.

Dalton Farms is a 99 acre family owned and run farm conveniently located in southern New Jersey just off of SR 322.  The farm was allowing residents to drive through their tulip fields to see the spring colors as the flowers bloom.  However, apparently fearing transmission of the Wuhan Virus from non-compliant vehicle operators; potentially permitting tire-to-tire transmission; the state has ordered the farm to shut down.

All rogue citizens must be controlled lest they put a compliant society at risk of infection. Flower viewers are some of the most dangerous elements within our new society. They may not just carry biologics they could possibly carry a more alarming virus of wrong-thought, potentially even perspectives on freedom, against the interests of the state.

During these stressful times thought, without regard for collective need, is an indication a citizen may be a subversive. Rogue citizens would be subversive to our new society and must be controlled.

The COVID Compliance Ministry appreciates good citizens who comply with the interests of the state. Good citizenship is rewarded with enhanced credits allowing access to a safe COVID Compliant Society. A safer society; where the odds will always be in your favor.

New York and New Jersey, combined, account for more than half of U.S. COVID-19 deaths. Both of these states require nursing homes to admit patients who have tested positive for COVID-19. In my opinion, this policy constitutes mass murder.

New York and New Jersey, combined, account for more than half of U.S. COVID-19 deaths.

As of the afternoon of April 22, 2020, the U.S. has had a total of 46,771 deaths from COVID-19.

20,167 were in New York.

5,063 were in New Jersey.

In other words, these two states, combined, account for more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the entire country.

Here’s a link to my source, with a screenshot. The screenshot was taken on the afternoon of April 22, 2020:

Ordering nursing homes to admit patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 is an extremely mean, dumb, stupid, irrational, irresponsible, and insane thing to do.

This policy has already killed a huge numbers of people.

And who knows how many more will die as a result.

John Stossel exposes corrupt politicians in Edgewater, New Jersey

In Edgewater, New Jersey, developer #1 owns land and wants to build apartments.

Developer #2 has apparently bribed the local government to deny developer #1 permission to build the apartments.

John Stossel asks the mayor and members of city council if they are on the take from developer #2, but their lawyer advises them not to answer.

New Jersey public school forces student to get psychological evaluation, blood test, urine test, and to strip, because he twirled a pencil. The state threatened to take him away from his father.

Ethan Chaplin, Student, Says He Was Suspended For Twirling Pencil

April 7, 2014

Was it a twirling pencil or something more sinister?

That’s the question that hovers over the story of Ethan Chaplin, a Vernon, N.J. seventh-grader who, last week, was told he could return to Glen Meadow Middle School only after he received a psychological evaluation.

According to News 12, Chaplin said he was sitting in class, spinning a pencil with a pen cap on top when a fellow student told his teacher, “He’s making gun motions, send him to juvie.”

After the incident, Chaplin’s dad, Michael, said his son was effectively suspended pending a psychological examination, which the middle schooler passed.

The school tells a different story.

Vernon Schools Superintendent Charles Maranzano told HuffPost he couldn’t discuss the specific incident because of privacy laws, but he did say “no school in the state of New Jersey or nationally would leap to a school suspension for twirling a pencil. That’s not what the basis of our actions are.”

Instead, Maranzano said the student was not suspended, but was told he could return as soon as a doctor completed a psychological evaluation and determined the student posed no threat to himself or others.

“Our actions are always based on what’s best for the health safety and welfare of all the students,” Maranzano said. “We’re responsible for their mental and physical health and safety and security. When a student misbehaves or displays actions that are non-conforming or don’t meet our expectations, it causes us some concerns.”

Maranzano also said, in the wake of several deadly shootings, schools are being especially careful.

“I don’t want to be the one who failed to act when there were warning signs being demonstrated or displayed,” Maranzano said.

Michael Chaplin told InfoWars about what his son had to undergo during the psychological evaluation.

“The child was stripped, had to give blood samples (which caused him to pass out) and urine samples for of all things drug testing,” Michael Chaplin said. “Then four hours later a social worker spoke to him for five minutes and cleared him. Then an actual doctor came in and said the state was 100 percent incorrect in their procedure and this would not get him back in school.”

Maranzano said Chaplin is back in school.

Dad: NJ threatens to take away son after pencil-twirling incident

June 10, 2014

VERNON, N.J. (PIX11) –  A 13-year-old boy was the most famous kid in school for a few weeks.

A simple pencil-twirling incident landed Ethan Chaplin in hot water with his school, which threatened to suspend him after a classmate claimed he was spinning the writing utensil like a gun.

After media attention from PIX11 and around the world, school officials backed off — but child protection agencies did not.

Letters to Ethan’s father, Michael, show the school found his son did nothing wrong at all, and that there would be no disciplinary action.  The superintendent was even confident the issue would be behind all of them.

And that’s exactly what happened, until Ethan’s father received startling communication from New Jersey’s Department of Child Protection and Permanency and Department of Children and Families.

“I received a letter from them saying they had found an incident of abuse or neglect regarding Ethan because I refused to take him for psychological evaluation,” Michael said.

In an effort to play along and clear his name, Michael agreed to take his son for an evaluation.

Ethan was seen by a social worker, and had his blood drawn and urine taken.  In the end, no behavioral problem was found.

The state, it seems, is ignoring that set of testing, demanding further evaluation and threatening that if Michael doesn’t comply, they are will terminate his parental rights and free Ethan up for adoption.

“All I can do is keep fighting, keep telling the truth and (keep) presenting the evidence. That is all I can do and hopefully the state does the right thing,” Michael said.

He has even reached out to Governor Chris Christie’s office, who replied they would contact the Dept. of Children and Families to investigate.

“…I’m scared because they have a habit of running away with things unchecked and that’s exactly what’s going on,” Michael said.

PIX11 tried to get a comment from DCPP and NJ Department of Children and Families but received no answers.

The agency told PIX11 they can’t discuss the allegations or even acknowledge they have involvement with the family.
