    It’s a good rule of thumb to avoid looking like an idiot in front of children.I mention this because New York’s governor and government are about to do exactly that. They are currently muddling through the implementation of an absolutely idiotic move.Namely, a ban on extracurricular activities for students 12 and over who are vaccinated, but not boosted, and who are exposed to someone with covid.This has “dumbass” written all over it.And students know that.Students know that this new rule is illogical, punitive and ineffective, that it isn’t about public health, it is about submission to government authority. It’s not...

    Gov. Kathy Hochul said that she’s requesting more federal aid from the Biden administration for New York’s since dried-up rental relief program, ahead of the likely expiration of the state’s eviction moratorium this coming weekend. The eviction ban – in place since March 2020 – is expected to lapse on Saturday, Jan. 15. “What we want to do is let people know that that is concluding very shortly. I’m having conversations with the legislature on what to do on this issue,” Hochul said during a press conference in Manhattan. The moratorium was first signed as an executive order by ex-Gov....

    White people infected with COVID in New York State - the hardest hit state in the country - are in jeopardy of being turned away from potential lifesaving treatments in favor of other more at-risk races because of a national shortage of two promising types of medical treatments.
  • Nassau County exec signs order defying Hochul’s ‘autocracy’ on mask mandates

    In direct defiance of Gov. Kathy Hochul, newly installed Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman wants to let school districts decide if kids must wear masks inside buildings. The Republican official signed a trio of executive orders Thursday — including one that would give Nassau’s school boards the ability to scrap student mask mandates. Arguing that Albany was imposing an “autocracy” upon the state, Blakeman repeatedly ripped Hochul’s mask decrees prior to the signing. “School boards are comprised of elected officials who make decisions based upon the unique circumstances of each district,” Blakeman said at a Thursday press conference. “They are...

    As her state experiences increased pressure on the hospital and medical systems, New York Governor Kathy Hochul has issued an order intended to bring more clarity to COVID hospitalization data. The order will require hospitals to report whether a patient has been hospitalized for COVID-related reasons or has simply tested positive for COVID while at the hospital for other treatments.“Someone is in a car accident, and they go to the emergency room and they test positive for COVID while they’re there,” said Hochul, “They’re not being treated for COVID.” A surprising sentiment, particularly to people who have been saying something...

    She’s a Democrat. It’s not like we were expecting her to be any better than Andrew Cuomo, but Kathy Hochul, who stepped in after the former resigned over sexual misconduct allegations, has truly gone off the reservation with this public health emergency. It’s not even COVID-related. The college faculty seemed to have overtaken this part of her staff because this isn’t a real health emergency. Well, it may be if you’re ‘woke.’ She declared racism a public health crisis, but these are the serious people who are the adults in the room, right? New York is once again the Mecca...

New York Governor Kathy Hochul and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio have imposed vaccine mandates for healthcare workers and public and private school employees. De Blasio also imposed a vaccine passport system for restaurants, gyms, theaters and bars. NYPD officers are now De Blasio’s Gestapo vax passport enforcement arm.

    Five hundred and eighty one days ago, I wrote a column that appeared in these pages with a headline on the cover that read “It Needs To End. NOW.” In May 2020 there were no COVID vaccines, and limited treatments, and yet already, many voices had begun to call out the excessive illiberal measures enacted by gubernatorial despots in our bluest states. A year and a half later, the results are in. The critics of lockdowns were right... Insidious rules...

    The office of New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said on Dec. 20 that the state wouldn’t send inspectors to businesses to see if business owners are complying with the Democrat’s indoor mask mandate, an apparent reversal of remarks Hochul made earlier in the day. “Enforcement will be done by local health departments,” Hochul spokesperson Hazel Crampton-Hays told news outlets. “Governor Hochul made $65 million available today for counties’ enforcement needs, including personnel costs associated with spot checks and other enforcement. We are all in this together as we fight this winter surge.” In two press briefings on the funding, Hochul...

    New York Gov. Kathy Hochul’s (D) office backtracked on Monday after the governor announced the state would provide millions of dollars in support to counties complying with her mask rules, as well as state inspectors to conduct “spot checks” for coronavirus mandate compliance in businesses across the state. “I want to focus on the counties doing the right thing, and that have been our allies in making sure that we ensure that people are compliant with our protocols related to masks,” Hochul said on Monday.

    ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - New York governor Kathy Hochul on Monday expressed confidence she can reach a deal involving hundreds of millions of dollars in public funding to build a new stadium for the Buffalo Bills in time to be included on the state’s budget due in April. Hochul said she has provided the team two timelines to negotiate an agreement by either the end of the year or extend talks through March. The governor added the Bills will have the final say whether to have the new facility based near their current home in Orchard Park or downtown....

    Americans are increasingly done with mandates in the name of fighting COVID. After almost two years, most have gone back to their pre-pandemic lives and just won’t obey orders from the hysteria echo chamber. Consider Gov. Kathy Hochul’s recent mask-or-vax mandate. More than 30 New York County executives have publicly refused to enforce it, using terms like “Gestapo tactics” and “mask police.” And not just Republican execs: The Democrats in charge of Nassau and Suffolk counties balked, too. ... It’s time for the nation’s leaders to fall back to simply offering advice in most cases: Issuing orders that won’t be...

    Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Katy Tur Reports” that New York State will eventually require people to get a booster shot to meet the state’s vaccination requirements for COVID-19. Tur asked, “Let me ask you this. Are you going to change the requirement for what fully vaccinated means? Is it going to be with a booster shot, especially since we’re finding out that you can get Omicron just as easily as if you were unvaccinated, five months after your second vaccination?”

    ""...I think small businesses have been through enough already." At least 13 counties in New York state are telling newly-tapped Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul that they will not be enforcing her mask mandate on private businesses — and some of the county leaders are letting their displeasure over the “dictate” be known. According to the New York Post, Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus ripped Hochul, telling the governor he opposes “using Gestapo tactics and going business to business and asking them if they are enforcing masking.” The order from Hochul puts the onus on businesses: either checking customers’ vaccine statuses...

Kathy Hochul told reporters at a briefing in New York City. “We have left it to the counties to enforce, so counties can choose not to enforce. But we hope counties are enforcing,” she added later. Hochul, a Democrat who replaced Andrew Cuomo when he resigned earlier this year, on Friday announced that masks would...

New York’s new and unimproved governor, Kathy Hochul, last seen telling you to Get Vaxxed For Jesus (I kid you not), has now declared a “state of emergency” that will allow Health Department bureaucrats to block “non-urgent” medical procedures at hospitals. Because who needs a colonoscopy, anyway? Hochul says the Xi - I mean Omicron, definitely not Xi! - variant is behind the emergency.
