    New York’s “red zone” coronavirus restrictions will be adjusted this week to make them more tailored to each area’s needs, Gov. Cuomo announced Monday, as infection rates in the hotspots continued to drop. In a conference call with reporters, Cuomo said the changes will be unveiled Wednesday — roughly two weeks after the color-coded shutdowns of schools and non-essential businesses were first implemented in parts of southern Brooklyn, central Queens, Rockland County, Orange County and some areas of upstate.

    You don’t parole a child molester to an in-home daycare. You don’t parole an addict to a drug house. And you don’t parole a cop killer to the home of a Black Lives Matter activist. Even if it is in a toney suburb in a quarter-million-dollar house. But that is exactly what the state of New York has done with Black Panther Anthony Bottom, who ambushed and executed two New York City police officers in 1971. Turned loose when nobody was looking, the Black Liberation Army soldier was paroled to Rochester, without any notice to either the public or any...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Monday he was “not that confident” in the approval process for a possible coronavirus vaccine in place at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Cuomo also cast doubt on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), stating that both the CDC and FDA are seen less credibly under the Trump administration. The New York governor, whose state has suffered tens of thousands of deaths from the coronavirus, also said the public lacks faith in how the administration will handle vaccine development. "I'm not that confident, but my opinion doesn't matter. I don't...

    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...

    Three Rockland County Jewish congregations are suing the state and Gov.

Andrew Cuomo, saying he engaged in a “streak of anti-Semitic discrimination” with a recent crackdown on religious gatherings to reduce the state’s coronavirus infection rate. The Manhattan federal court lawsuit filed late Wednesday accused the Democrat of making negative, false, and discriminatory statements about the Jewish Orthodox community as he imposed new coronavirus...

    Follow the science. Governor Cuomo, the media, and his supporters have claimed that his false accusation that the segregation of particular areas as hot zones, some appearing to target Orthodox Jews, was based on the work of health experts and statistics. But discovery is a wonderful thing. Even when judges refuse to do the right thing, the process provides invaluable insights into a deeply corrupt system. The Brooklyn Catholic Diocese sued Cuomo and produced some incredible admissions, via OJPAC. "NYGovCuomo’s Howard Zucker admits in a brief in the Brooklyn Catholic Diocese case that “there is no specific percentage threshold to...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo likes to say that his virus policies, including a strict, prolonged lockdown of New York City, are based on science. Well, he finally revealed the truth when he told Jewish leaders last week that he is locking down their communities again due to public fear. Cases in Brooklyn, Queens and some New York City suburbs have been rising, and Mr. Cuomo blames orthodox Jewish communities not adhering to his rules. Last week he shut down nonessential businesses and schools in these communities and limited gatherings at houses of worship to 10 people. “They have never...

    On Wednesday, three Orthodox Jewish congregations in Rockland County, N.Y., sued Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) for issuing a “blatantly anti-Semitic” coronavirus order restricting religious services in Jewish areas, just before three sequential Jewish holy days. Cuomo falsely blamed the Orthodox Jewish community for a surge in COVID-19 cases in New York, referring to the surge as “a predominantly ultra-orthodox cluster,” and he admitted the lockdowns were based on “fear” rather than science. According to the lawsuit, Cuomo’s October 6 executive order “is blatantly anti-Semitic, creating religious-observance based color coded ‘hot-spot’ zones directed towards particular Jewish communities.” The order “not only...

    President Trump on Thursday tore into infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, calling him “a Democrat” who he said was friends with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Earlier Thursday, Fauci, a White House coronavirus task force member, had called Trump’s large reelection rallies “a risky situation” in an interview, though Trump did not directly mention the article. Trump told supporters at a midday rally in Greenville, N.C., that Fauci has been consistently wrong about how to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

    CUOMO: “There was never a directive that said we will send COVID positive people back to nursing homes. The directive which was modeled on the federal directive said you cannot discriminate. But the state law clearly says a nursing home can’t accept the person unless they can — can treat them." Here's the directive.

    Coronavirus cases in the U.S. are on the rise with 37 states seeing an uptick in daily cases over the last seven days. One of those states is New York, where Governor Andrew Cuomo recently unveiled new lockdowns for nine "hot spots" where cases are surging. "What we're doing is we are targeting what we call micro-clusters, so when we see a small group of cases, we are the firefighters who rush in to stamp it out before it takes off," Cuomo told "CBS This Morning" on Tuesday. "So we have several areas in the state that are small, they're...

    New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed what the majority of Americans have been thinking since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic: the government initiatives including the lockdowns are based out of fear and NOT on science. In leaked audio, Cuomo admitted that the new COVID lockdowns in New York is not based on any science or medical expertise, but rather in his words is a “fear-based response.” The video was first posted in a published article by Hamodia. The article contains a half-hour long audio clip of a private phone conversation recently held between NY State Governor Cuomo and...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that he doesn’t wish he could redo his coronavirus nursing home policy and that “it was wholly non-consequential.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “You have gotten criticism for, there were more than 6,000 people who died in nursing homes in New York from COVID, some of your critics have pointed to a directive back in March releasing COVID patients into nursing homes as the root cause of the high death toll.

    The confusion surrounding New York City's coronavirus rules for schools and nonessential businesses largely boiled down to a feud between New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, according to a report from the New York Times. Cuomo and de Blasio have only had one phone call in the past month, a City Hall official told the New York Times. Cuomo's staff also accused de Blasio of exceeding his authority in calls with the mayor's staff, according to a city official cited by the New York Times. Last week, de Blasio released his own plan...

    In a Wednesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) criticized President Donald Trump for giving off the “impression” that he is to blame for the large number of nursing home deaths amid the coronavirus pandemic in his state. Cuomo, whose state’s policy was to send COVID-positive patients back into nursing homes, said Trump is creating “a narrative which is factually untrue.” He added that he finds such action by the president “reprehensible” and “cruel” to the families who lost loved ones.

    Gov. Cuomo cited Hebrew quotes to urge Orthodox Jewish New Yorkers living in COVID-19 hot spots to refrain from large gatherings. “I say to my friends in the Hasidic community: The Hebrew faith teaches us, pikuach nefesh, which means ‘save a life,’ and under the Hebrew teachings … participation in a religious ceremony can be excused for a matter of health and life and safety,” he said during a Sunday phone call with reporters. After talking tough last week, the governor appeared to soften his tone on Sunday. “Love your neighbor as yourself,” Cuomo said, citing the Book of Leviticus....

    ALBANY — In his new book, Gov. Andrew Cuomo outs a staffer as testing positive for the coronavirus — which forced his entire communications team and some members of the Albany-based press corps into a two-week-long quarantine at the pandemic’s start. Cuomo recounts the morning his press secretary, Caitlin Girouard, tested positive for the bug in his new book released Tuesday, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19.” The diagnosis was confirmed following three tests — the first came back positive, the second negative and the third was positive.

    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....
