NJ Dem Gov Candidate Wants Permanent Frack Ban in Dela. Basin

“Lefty” Phil Murphy, candidate for gov in NJ

Democrats in New Jersey would have you believe whoever wins the upcoming Democrat gubernatorial primary will be the next governor of the state. Republicans don’t stand a prayer of a chance, according to the establishment’s received wisdom. Perhaps. One never knows. Chris Christy won–two terms. But he’s not running again. So there’s a whole field of candidates on the Democrat side. However, the one who appears to be the favorite, at least among mainstream media, is Phil Murphy–an anti-pipeline, anti-drilling troll (see Dem Candidate for NJ Gov Opposes PennEast, After He $upported It). Murphy invested in stocks in the companies that are building the PennEast Pipeline, but when it was discovered and he was ratted out by other Democrats, Murphy disavowed those investments. Typical politician/hypocrite. Now Murphy is stepping up his anti-fossil fuel game, in a bid to appeal to the unhinged, radical environmental movement in the state. Murphy wants the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC), of which NJ is a member, to permanently ban drilling in the Delaware River Basin. This is not some empty threat. If he wins, he has the power to heavily influence such a decision. There are five members of the DRBC board–the governors of the four basin states (PA, NY, DE, NJ) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Andrew Cuomo (NY) would certainly vote for a permanent ban. Gov. John Carney (DE) is another radical leftist Democrat who would likely vote for a permanent ban. Gov. Tom Wolf (PA) has said he supports a ban in the Delaware River Basin. And now, if NJ elects a radical like Phil Murphy, it would be a fait accompli. Which is why elections are so important. Here’s the latest by lefty Phil, the “ban all fossil fuels” candidate in NJ…
