  • The 1,000-Bed Comfort Was Supposed to Aid New York. It Has 3 Patients.

    The New York Times ^ | April 2, 2020 | Michael Schwirtz
    Such were the expectations for the Navy hospital ship U.S.N.S. Comfort that when it chugged into New York Harbor this week, throngs of people, momentarily forgetting the strictures of social distancing, crammed together along Manhattan’s west side to catch a glimpse. On Thursday, though, the huge white vessel, which officials had promised would bring succor to a city on the brink, sat mostly empty, infuriating local hospital executives. The ship’s 1,000 beds are largely unused, its 1,200-member crew mostly idle. Only three patients had been transferred to the ship, officials said, even as New York hospitals struggled to find space...
  • Gay Lawmaker Angered That Franklin Graham Is Helping Save Lives in New York City

    An openly gay and anti-Christian New York state senator has condemned Franklin Graham and Samaritan's Purse for wanting to treat coronavirus patients. Samaritan's Purse set up an emergency field tent hospital in Central Park at the request of city officials. The respiratory unit, which will be supervised by Mount Sinai Hospital, can accommodate 68 patients. "It's a shame that the federal government has left New York with no other choice but to accept charity from bigots," State Sen. Brad Hoylman said. "You know those medical tents being constructed in Central Park? They’re being set up by notorious anti-gay bigot Franklin...

    There's not just a coronavirus epidemic. There's apparently also an outbreak of amnesia—and we're not only talking about Joe Biden. On today's Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough, criticizing President Trump, said: "We've heard, Zeke Emanuel, that nobody could have seen this coming. The fact is, everybody saw this coming. Everybody saw this coming in early January."What? Did Scarborough forget what NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Scarborough's own show on March 10th: March 10th!Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Amazon fired a worker who organized a walkout at a New York warehouse to demand greater protection against the new coronavirus, saying the employee himself flouted distancing rules and put others at risk. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered the city’s Commission of Human Right to investigate whether the dismissal was retaliatory. New York Attorney General Letitia James called on the National Labor Relations Board to investigate and said her office is also considering legal options. […] Amazon said the worker, Christian Smalls, received several warnings for violating social distancing guidelines. Amazon said Smalls showed up at the...
  • NY just released eight sex offenders from jail – including three child rapists – and didn’t warn police.

    Let this sink in—under New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo—who is being hailed as the next great thing in Democratic presidential politics, the New York State prison system just released eight sex offenders from jail. Three of these inmates had been convicted of raping children. So, while liberals race to save prison inmates from coronavirus, we are releasing sexual deviants back into the community to rape again. Law Enforcement Today has learned from Breitbart News that this weekend in Monroe County, New York, the jail freed more than 50 inmates from custody as part of the state’s legalized jailbreak program sponsored by the Department of...

  • The Long Island Hamptons Is Seeking A Travel Ban… From NYC

    Hotair ^ | 03/29/2020 | Jazz Shaw
    Yesterday we discussed the fact that the Governor of Rhode Island had sought legal advice as to whether or not she could close the borders of her state to people arriving from New York City, effectively instituting a travel ban on people who live in or had visited Gotham. That turned out not to be possible because of pesky constitutional considerations. But what if a governor wanted to set up such a ban inside of their own state? That’s a question that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo may have to deal with this week. It’s not just people in...

    When John Sexton wrote about New York City residents failing at social distancing, I don’t think he expected it to go this far. Stopping New Yorkers from keeping the party going in the city that never sleeps is proving even harder than expected. As John pointed out, the Mayor still hasn’t closed the parks, so people are out there jogging, congregating and taking in the spring weather together. But that doesn’t hold a candle to Big Apple resident Lucian Wintrich, who you may remember as a reporter for the Gateway Pundit.Lucian decided to make the best of a bad...

    CNN’s Jake Tapper set up the New York City Mayor by playing clip after clip of him telling New Yorkers to just go about their business up until a few weeks ago.De Blasio and others have been doing everything they can to try and damage President Trump even though it is the New York Mayor who was late to call for quarantining people. There was also a video on Twitter (see below) from Friday that showed a park packed with people in Queens, NY, who were ignoring the call for social distancing. While de Blasio points to Trump to place...

    Just days after his commanding primary victories in Florida, Arizona and Illinois, the coronavirus has turned former Vice President Joe Biden into a virtual prisoner of his Delaware home, where he’s reduced to sniping at President Trump from the family rec room. “He’s making himself irrelevant,” Saikat Chakrabarti, a former chief of staff to Queens Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, told The Post, saying the virtual broadcasts were not helping. “We need action immediately, and Biden can’t do anything real right now.”

    ew York City’s health commissioner, ostensibly responsible for advising New Yorkers on best health practices, is coming under fire for the role she may have played in the city becoming America’s biggest Coronavirus cluster. Last month, Oxiris Barbot, the city’s health commissioner, said that riding public transit and going out into public, — including attending the Chinese Lunar New Year parade in Chinatown, would help defeat anti-Asian prejudices. “The risk to New Yorkers for Coronavirus is low, and our preparedness as a city is very high,” Barbot said February 2nd. “There is no reason not to take the subway, not...

    """New York tells nursing homes they'll need to take coronavirus patients discharged from hospitals, report says""" New York told nursing-home operators that they will be required to accept patients infected with the new coronavirus who are discharged from hospitals but may be still convalescing, amid more cases in the state that are straining the health-care system. The decision will draw pushback from some nursing-home officials, who have warned that such moves endanger residents who aren’t infected by the virus, because discharged patients may still be contagious. A group representing doctors who work in nursing homes, known as AMDA, the Society...

    The city is already locked down, with residents asked to remain at home as much as possible per one of Andrew Cuomo’s orders a week ago.What Tom Bossert has in mind is a lock-in. No one in or out, except suppliers. Wall the city off until the spread of infection there is under control, whenever that is. Otherwise we’re risking the same problem that the Chinese had in Wuhan, moving too slowly to restrict the outflow of people and allowing them to seed outbreaks elsewhere. There are nearly 31,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in New York State as of...

    New Yorkers are staying put and apparently not committing nearly as many crimes, according to the official stats released Wednesday by the NYPD. Citywide crime is down almost 17% compared to the same week last year, with dramatic drops in violent crime -- shootings down 23.5%, rapes down 69% and assaults down 9%. Crime in the subway, which had grown significantly so far this year, was down 33% last week compared to the year before. Criminals are still stealing cars, as thefts were up 52% compared to the same week last year. That said, the recent trend had shown an...

    Big Apple first lady Chirlane McCray was apparently behind Mayor Bill de Blasio’s premature announcement that a shelter-in-place order was on the horizon for New York City. On Hot 97’s “Ebro in the Morning” Wednesday, de Blasio doubled down on his insistence that New Yorkers may soon be confined to their homes except for essential trips for food, medicine and exercise because of the coronavirus outbreak — even though Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted the day before that he wasn’t considering the measure yet. The mayor said he wanted to prepare New Yorkers for something that “well might be happening soon.”

    Seven more teens have been arrested for the brutal beatdown of a 15-year-old girl in Brooklyn, cops said Sunday. The teens, ranging in ages from 14 to 16, were charged with robbery and gang assault for the attack at Sterling Place and Utica Ave. in Crown Heights about 4 p.m. on Thursday. They were all nabbed over the weekend, authorities said. The attack sparked an outcry from local officials and advocates after the NYPD released shocking footage of the attack.

  • Replacing Buses with Ridesharing Would be a ‘Win’ for Everyone

    In a triumphant moment, New York City announced it would include ridesharing services in its metro budget. Realizing that many residents live in areas with inadequate late night and early morning metro services, the Metro Transportation Authority plans to subsidize ridesharing as early as June to help bridge the gap between people’s bus stop and home. While this is a good start, if cities wanted to improve their public transit, they would replace their bus systems in favor of ridesharing.Earlier this month, New York City Chief Innovation Officer, Mark Dowd, announced the city is looking to partner with transportation network...

    NY has just passed bail reform that allows people accused of felonies - including robbery and assault, right back on the street. NY also passed laws requiring names and phone numbers of witnesses to crimes released to the criminal defense attorney which has already resulted in the murder of a witness. NY has also passed laws requiring prosecutors to turn over all prosecution info to defense within 15 days, making it impossible to prosecute some defendants so the alleged criminals can just walk away. We live near the NY border - a very long state border with lawless NY. Is...

    The New York City Police Department is warning officers to be "vigilant and alert" following increased "credible" threats toward its officers. Officials are advising all officers to have a heightened awareness "in light of the events that transpired over the past weekend in the Bronx." Officials sent a department-wide email stressing there are "no specific threats against the department," but said desk officers must ensure that every station house security post is assigned and staffed at all times. Law enforcement sources tell ABC News that federal authorities notified the NYPD that they took an alleged MS-13 member in custody that...
