I will tell you what, the American spirit of overcoming tyranny is still alive and well in this country.
And nowhere is that spirit more on display than in New Jersey.
As you may know, the patriotic owners of Atilis Gym have been targeted and terrorized by the tyrannical NJ Governor Murphy, who is bound and determined to put this small business out of business.
Thanks to Murphy’s overzealous and tyrannical COVID rules (typical Democrat, making COVID “political” to help Biden) the duo who owns the gym have been forced to fight for their livelihoods…they’ve even gone to jail for it.

But the state of New Jersey is hell-bent on keeping the gym closed…so these two heroic guys came up with a brilliant plan to beat Murphy at his own game.
What did they do?
Well, they turned their gym into a “campaign HQ” for a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.
They will now hold “daily rallies” and “political events” at the gym since political speech is protected.
WE LOVE IT!
(2/2) I’m pleased to announce that the owners have joined my campaign finance committee.
We will hold daily political rallies at Atilis gym.
Political speech is protected and we will protect the sacred political grounds of Atilis Gym.
I’m proud to stand with them.

The resilient owners of the Atilis Gym have taken their dispute with Democrat New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy to a creative new level: They have designated the facility an official campaign rally location for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Rik Mehta, a healthcare policy expert.
Everyone who enters the gym is considered a campaign volunteer.
Ideally, the location thus should now enjoy the protections of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as well as the equivalent provisions of state law.
“Gov. Murphy turned this into a political chess game. What we said is, checkmate, governor,” Mehta remarked.
Co-owner Ian Smith told Fox & Friends that controversy over keeping the gym’s doors open never intended to get political.
“When we started this, we took a stand for our constitutional rights and for the rights of all small business owners throughout the country. And it wasn’t intended to become political. We were trying to offer a solution to a problem where government was failing. It turned political. And that was because of Governor Murphy’s actions. So now we, we made it political just as much as he has.”
According to Mehta, who is running against Cory “Spartacus” Booker, Murphy is harming small businesses and crushing the American Dream with his arbitrary edicts as unemployment soars in the Garden State.
“It’s time to put policy over politics. We’re really tired of the one-sided control that the governor has. We’ve asked many times…where’s the science? …We flattened the curve, and they keep moving the goalpost.”
I have a feeling some of their events will include “Leg Work for Mehta” or “Treadmill for the GOP.”
Ha ha ha!
