    Democrats would be a whole lot better off if Andrew Cuomo were their nominee for president. While it may be too late to derail front- runner Joe Biden, a candidate bent on self- destruction, Cuomo, the governor of New York, has shown the nation what it means to be a leader in a time of crisis. While Biden may be ahead in Democrat convention delegates, he is behind when it comes to charisma and confidence. Cuomo has no delegates, but he oozes both, just as his father Mario Cuomo did
  • The Cuomo Brothers’ Schtick May Be Cute, But It’s Also Irresponsible

    In times of crisis, the audience needs to trust that the journalists tasked with interviewing leading officials will do so without fear or favor.I get that we’re all desperate for levity in these terrible times, and the banter of two loving brothers is a welcome balm to the stressful media coverage. A lot of us are missing our own families right now. I understand, I do. But the conventional wisdom boosting New York’s Cuomo Brothers to hero status right now misses some problematic elements of their schtick. At risk of raining on everyone’s parade, this is a glaring conflict of...
  • Natural Gas-starved NY State supply pipeline project abandoned after Gov. Cuomo vowed “any way that we can challenge it, we will”

    After a four-year battle with the state, the proposed Constitution natural-gas pipeline project has been abandoned, as National Grid warns of a coming natural gas supply emergency next Winter. The State of New York has a natural gas shortage, the result of years of the administration of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and environmentalists fighting the construction of new supply pipelines. A June 2019 report by The Manhattan Institute documented the shortage and its causes, Out of Gas: New York’s Blocked Pipelines Will Hurt Northeast Consumers:

    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...

    What to Know A regional EMT group has issued new guidelines almost unthinkable even days ago -- if someone's in cardiac arrest and you can't revive them in the field, don't bring them to the emergency roomThe guidance from the Regional Emergency Medical Services Council of New York City applies to the city as well as Nassau and Suffolk counties. The group, known as REMSCO, is the state-designated coordinating authority for the regionThe newly implemented order takes effect Thursday in an effort to control the surge of patients in hospitals due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic As the coronavirus stretches...

    How nervous are some Democrats about Joe Biden's chances against President Trump this November? Nervous enough to entertain the notion that another Democrat -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo -- might swoop in and save the day. Cuomo, who has been governor for nearly a decade and has one of the most famous names in Democratic politics, found new prominence when his state became the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis in the United States. In February and March, some New York officials urged the public to maintain regular activities even as the virus took hold in the state, leading to...

    Andrew Cuomo is no longer just New York's governor - he is now America's governor. Thanks to his excellent leadership during the overwhelming health crisis caused by the coronavirus, Cuomo has provided much-needed comfort and information to the entire country. He has been so effective and has presented such a stark contrast with the vacuum of leadership in the White House that now some people are saying he should be America's president. As a New Yorker, I understand where they're coming from, but I wish they would stop. First, New York needs Cuomo's leadership now and in the months to...
  • 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...

    “A small number of religious communities, specific churches and specific synagogues, are unfortunately not paying attention to this guidance even though it’s so widespread,” the New York Democrat said Friday at his daily press briefing. “I want to say to all those who are preparing for the potential of religious services this weekend: If you go to your synagogue, if you go to your church and attempt to hold services after having been told so often not to, our enforcement agents will have no choice but to shut down those services,” he added.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio warned the Jewish community, again, not to hold services in the synagogues. Failing cooperation, he said, permanent closure would be the next step. Although many shuls have closed in deference to the city’s COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions, some have not and instead continued to hold minyanim despite the city’s orders to close in order to prevent the spread of the virus. “We’ve had extraordinary, across the board rabbinical support from all the different elements of the Jewish community and the same is true of other faiths as well, de Blasio said at his daily...

    Once again, government intrusion into the health-care sector has proved disastrous. While New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blames the president and the federal government for the lack of beds and ventilators in his state, the power to determine the number of these critical medical supplies in New York hospitals falls squarely upon the shoulders of the governor.During a Tuesday press conference, Cuomo lashed out at the federal government for not sending enough ventilators as the Wuhan coronavirus continues to rattle the state. “Four hundred ventilators? I need 30,000 ventilators,” Cuomo said. “You want a pat on the back for sending...

    Gov. Cuomo for veep? Well, never say never — but it’s ­unlikely. Yes, the governor is up to his neck in five-star reviews for his management of the corona­virus crisis. His TV presence radiates calm competence. Clearly, he has gotten the poetry of governance in a maelstrom right; whether he is on top of the prose of it remains to be seen, but it certainly seems so. And of such stuff are political superstars born. So it’s no surprise that people are talking him up as a potential partner to presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. If ever a candidacy...

    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...
  • Trump Says Northeast Quarantine Will 'Not be Necessary,' Will Issue Travel Advisory Instead

    President Trump announced he would not be imposing a quarantine on parts of the Northeast but would instead be issuing a travel advisory for the area.  Trump said earlier on Saturday that he was considering the idea of imposing a quarantine for the states of New York and New Jersey as well as some parts of Connecticut to help stop the spread of Wuhan coronavirus. New York is currently leading the nation as the epicenter of coronavirus cases. "I’m thinking about that right now," Trump told reporters on Saturday. "We might not have to do it, but there’s a possibility that...

    Cuomo noted that New York had 15 times the coronavirus cases of California and other states and offered his opinion about why that was the case. “Because we welcome people from across the globe,” he said. “We have people coming here, we have people who came here from China, who came here from Italy, who came here from all across the globe.” Cuomo said that he believed that the virus was in New York City long before people even knew it was a problem. “I had no doubt that the virus was here much earlier than we even know,” he...

    The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is the latest regional agency to ask federal officials for a bail out, citing coronavirus related travel losses at all its facilities. The request for $1.9 billion was made in a letter to members of the New Jersey and New York congressional delegation Friday, citing a drop in traffic volume or ridership at all of its facilities as the reason. The coronavirus related fall off comes after the authority reported record volumes of traffic the its six bridges and tunnels, four airports, PATH rail system and cargo ports in 2019.

    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.”
