  • 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:

    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...

    We most certainly are living in coronavirus hell, but Christians aren't the ones who got us here. If Murphy’s Law promises that “anything that can go wrong will go wrong,” what we’ll call the law of religion — which could rightly be attributed to Jesus himself — assures that “if Christians can be blamed for something, they will be.” It has become abundantly clear the coronavirus is no exception.Heroic nurses, doctors, and first responders are risking their safety to save others. Many private businesses are doing everything they can to preserve their payrolls, with some even stepping up in innovative...
  • 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...

    Democrats are chastising President Trump for his handling of the Coronavirus global pandemic, but a review of their initial handling of the crisis looks far worse in retrospect. As news reports began circulating that the disease was able to be transmitted from person to person, Democratic lawmakers continued encouraging Americans to gather in large groups. The Coronavirus, De Blasio said February 14th, "should not stop you from going about your life, should not stop you from going to Chinatown and going out to eat. I’m going to do that today myself.” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi likewise urged Americans...

    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...

    “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...

    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...

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.

    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.”

    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...
