    The Hasidic synagogue barred from holding a public wedding in Brooklyn over fears it would attract 10,000 people says the “unwarranted attacks” forced it to scrap the planned celebration to avoid a “paparazzi” event. The Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar was served an order Friday night from New York state barring Monday’s planned public wedding in Williamsburg of a grandson of its grand rabbi, Zalman Leib Teitelbaum. But the synagogue hit out at the order, saying it had taken special steps to ensure the wedding complied with coronavirus guidelines but “nobody verified our plans before attacking us.” “The unwarranted attacks on...

    A silver casket was wheeled to the front of a Brooklyn nursing home Sunday — and 6,500 copies of the cover of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new book were dumped into it in protest of his COVID-19 policies. The number of covers was equal to the roughly 6,500 people who have been reported killed by the coronavirus in nursing homes in the state — although the ralliers said they believe the figure is much higher. “My mother-in-law got COVID in an elder-care facility but died in a hospital, [so] her number does not count’’ in New York’s nursing-home tally, said Janice...

    Trump supporters unfurled what they say is the largest ever flag honoring the president - completely covering the controversial Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in Manhattan. Dozens of people gathered outside the Fifth Avenue building 3.30pm on Tuesday before they marched toward Times Square as part of a project named 'Operation Flag Drop', which is organized through a Facebook group. The crowd recited the pledge of allegiance and chants such as 'whose streets? our streets' and 'four more years' as they marched the 75ft by 50ft flag reading 'Trump: Law and Order' through New York City.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled a statue honoring Mother Frances Cabrini in Battery Park City Monday to mark Columbus Day. The Columbus Day Parade went virtual this year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and Cuomo served as the parade’s grand marshal. Cuomo announced the state would commission the Mother Cabrini statue after First Lady Chirlane McCray left Mother Cabrini out of the first group of statues being constructed as part of the"She Built NYC" initiative despite Cabrini having the highest number of public nominations. Cabrini was an Italian American Catholic nun who helped Italian American immigrants living in the United States....

    Like Black Lives Matter riots, Muslim mobs don’t spread the virus. Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism. Every year, Shiite Muslims in Flushing, Queens conduct the Arbaeen, a procession in honor of Mohammed's grandson whose death at the hands of a Sunni caliph marked the pivotal break between Shiites and Sunnis, slapping their faces and chests for their beheaded Imam Hussein. Queens, once the borough that gave birth to President Trump and David Horowitz, now has a large Muslim population, and the...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is reportedly considering making Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo his attorney general if elected president, Axios reported Sunday. Cuomo chairs the National Governors Association, where aides have reportedly started looking at potential replacements for Cuomo if Biden is elected, Axios reported. Democratic donors said Biden and Como’s history of friendship would factor into his consideration for the appointment, the outlet noted. However, Cuomo’s office said he has no interest in serving in a cabinet position, Axios reported. “100% he’s made zero outreach, has had zero conversations about this and has made his desire to...

    (JNS) “I have to say to the Orthodox community tomorrow, ‘If you’re not willing to live with these rules, then I’m going to close the synagogues,’” Governor Andrew Cuomo told religious Jews. His basis for the decree was a photo of mourners who weren’t practicing social distancing at a funeral. But the photo of a crowd of Orthodox Jews on Cuomo’s slide was from 2006. It was a very different message than Cuomo’s condemnation of bigotry when he had insisted, “There is zero evidence that people of Asian descent bear any additional responsibility for the transmission of the coronavirus.” The...

    The governor won't allow cinemas to reopen even though indoor dining, gyms and other public-facing businesses have been allowed to resume operation. The latest release playing at a New York movie theater? The battle between exhibitors and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Frustrated exhibitors across New York are using their marquees to send a very public message to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, whose administration has yet to allow cinemas to reopen. Late this week, the Regal E-Walk in New York City's Times Square installed a new message on its marquee: "48 states have reopened theaters so far. Why not New York, Gov. Cuomo?...

    Several Orthodox Jewish groups and the Brooklyn Roman Catholic Diocese filed separate lawsuits against Gov. Cuomo on Thursday for shutting down businesses in COVID-19 hotspots in the city, and limiting entrances to houses of worship. The suits were filed in Brooklyn Federal Court, one by the Catholic Church and the other by Agudath Israel of America, Agudath Israel of Kew Garden Hills and other Jewish groups, including a few rabbis.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not take kindly to Vice President Mike Pence referencing her and her famous moniker during Wednesday night’s vice presidential debate with Sen. Kamala Harris. While discussing differences between the Biden-Harris plan for combating climate change with that of the Green New Deal championed by Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), the vice president pointed out how Harris (D-Calif.) was an original co-sponsor of the bill when it came to the Senate floor.
  • Orthodox Jews Say They're Being Targeted by New NYC Lockdowns

    A group of Orthodox Jewish men gathered Tuesday evening in Brooklyn, burning masks to protest the newest iteration of New York's pandemic lockdown. Their anger is reasonable, because the newest lockdown—which disproportionately affects the city's Jewish community and explicitly targets religious gatherings—is not. It is deeply stupid and unfair, exactly the sort of easily avoidable government overreach that makes even well-intended people doing their best to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 understandably skeptical of public health directives. At issue is New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's "Cluster Action Initiative," implemented at the request of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo told Jewish religious leaders that limiting houses of worship to 50 percent capacity was sufficient to beat back the coronavirus surge — only to announce tighter restrictions just hours later. The governor spoke around 9 a.m. Tuesday with honchos from Orthodox Jewish communities across New York, seeking their commitment to help contain new outbreaks in Brooklyn and Queens, as well as a handful of upstate communities. “I’m asking you, out of friendship, for your help,” Cuomo said, according to a transcript of the phone call obtained by The Post. “It’s in your community’s best interest on many...

One large crowd huddled closely together at the corner of 50th Street and 15th avenue at about 9 p.m. as community activist Heshy Tischler ripped Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio over the order that shuts down schools completely and limits houses of worship to 10 people in certain COVID-19 hot spots....

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo told viewers he would not play audio of what he described as "propaganda" video footage of President Trump removing his mask on a balcony at the White House on Monday night, prompting criticism of Cuomo primarily from conservative commentators who argued he was being hypocritical after breaking his own quarantine earlier this year. “What a bunch of bulls---," Cuomo said of Trump removing his mask before entering the residence and recording a video posted on social media. "He didn’t just walk in the White House one time with no mask tonight. He had his video...

  • Gov Cuomo Uses 14-Year-Old Photo to Target Jewish Community for ‘Problem’ Gatherings in New York

    Lecturing his fellow New Yorkers about just how dangerous religious gatherings are in particular, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) used a 14-year-old photo to deceptively claim the Jewish community has been skirting mask mandates “in recent weeks.” Cuomo argued during a Monday news conference that religious institutions “have been a problem” during the coronavirus pandemic, claiming the 2006 photo of Jewish mourners is proof the community has been troublesome in the “recent past.” The confusion came as the governor announced he is prepared to shutter synagogues in New York City if Jewish congregants don’t comply with all the state’s and city’s...

    New York City is becoming an economic basket case. "'We're at war': New York City Faces a Financial Abyss," screams a New York Times headline. New York City's unemployment rate stands at 16%, double the nation's average. Yet, even in the midst of a "financial abyss," the animosity of New York's liberal elite remains undeterred in its hostility toward free enterprise and entrepreneurship, the pillars of job creation and economic recovery. In a latest example, commercial real estate development firms have pulled out of a proposed project, Industry City, that was estimated to bring 20,000 jobs and $100 million in...
