    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) criticized New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) policy on school reopening as not a plan, but “a prayer, an outline at best.” And characterized de Blasio as “not only the worst mayor in the history of New York City, he’s the worst mayor in the history of this great country.” Rose said, “I think it’s important that we take a step back here and set the table. This mayor is not only the worst mayor in the history of New York City, he’s the...

    Newsday ^ | 8/07/20
    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said all school districts in the state can open and have students, teachers and staff return based on the low infection rates recorded in every region, but the state leaves the specifics of how to return to classes or whether or when to do so in-person to the school districts themselves. The governor said the school districts have much work to do to inform their communities, answering the concerns of parents and teachers of the specifics of their reopening plans. Cuomo said he expects districts to post those specifics for public review "by the end of...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday suggested that Gov. Andrew Cuomo was wrong to call on wealthy New Yorkers to return to the city amid the coronavirus pandemic and an uptick in crime. The Democrat also threatened to tax the wealthy even further if the federal government does not do more to assist the city, which is facing the worst financial crisis in decades. Thousands of apartments were vacated as the wealthy fled the city during the pandemic to seek refuge in places such as the Hamptons and Connecticut. De Blasio said the city was tracking those who'd left. He acknowledged...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is calling on the wealthy to return to New York City from their weekend homes in the surrounding suburbs, fearing they may choose to stay and file taxes there. “I literally talk to people all day long who are now in their Hamptons house who also lived here, or in their Hudson Valley house or in their Connecticut weekend house, and I say, ‘You got to come back, when are you coming back?’” Cuomo said at a press conference Monday. "'We'll go to dinner, I'll buy you a drink, come over, I’ll cook,'” Cuomo...

    Governor Andrew Cuomo still refuses to support taxes on the ultra-wealthy, because rich people already have one foot out of New York City, and he fears they'll leave for good if their taxes go up. "I literally talk to people all day long who are in their Hamptons house who also lived here, or in their Hudson Valley house or in their Connecticut weekend house, and I say, 'You gotta come back, when are you coming back?'" Cuomo said during a press conference on Monday, when asked if he'd support a slate of tax hike proposals on the wealthy. "'We'll...

    New York is faced with swelling budget holes as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, and the state’s governor is concerned the state's financial situation may get worse if the city’s wealthiest taxpayers leave for good. This week, the state’s Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo voiced concern that the longer work-from-home policies are in place, the less likely it is that people who have left the city will return. “In the old days we used to talk about people leaving Manhattan if the situation got bad, if taxes went up, if quality of life deteriorated,” Cuomo said on a call with...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) blamed New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) for the crime wave inundating his city. Just this past week shootings were up by 176% over the same week in 2019. Cuomo called this "intolerable" and pointed to de Blasio's release of 1500 inmates from the Rikers Island jail as "the primary cause. Of those released, 13% were almost immediately re-arrested. This included seven people for gun charges and one for murder." The Mayor stood by his decision to release the inmates, calling it "an act of mercy aiming at saving the lives of men who...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Tuesday he was “very concerned” about the “devastating” crime wave sweeping the Big Apple, casting blame on anti-police sentiment, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to release inmates from Rikers Island during the COVID-19 pandemic and the cratering economy. “I am very concerned about it,” the governor said during a press call from Albany Tuesday. There were 47 shootings just last week — a 176-percent jump over the 17 tallied during the same period last year, according to NYPD statistics. “The result is intolerable and is devastating and is, long term as we’re trying to get New York City...

    CNN talking head Don Lemon professed himself "flabbergasted" by US Attorney General William Barr's characterization of the violent protests following the death of George Floyd as "extreme." "How can an old white guy like Barr comprehend the righteous rage of people protesting the murder of an innocent black man by the Minneapolis Police?" Lemon asked. "How can he not perceive the justice of tearing down the society that makes crimes like the one perpetrated against Floyd possible? Looted merchandise, burned down buildings, and a few random deaths seem a small price to pay for the kind of transformation the protesters...

    In recent days, courts have said that dancing topless in Buffalo is protected by the First Amendment, while attending church in Nevada isn’t. Covid can’t keep you away from a stripper, but it can keep you away from your priest. You may gather by the thousands to shout vulgarities at the cops – or burn down cities in the Northwest – but you can’t go to the gym or the amusement park, or hold your wedding or funeral. It’s covid-1984 and the deadly pathogen is not a novel virus, it is an all-powerful government. The bug will come and go,...
