Cuomo cajoles wealthy New Yorker’s to return to New York City from the Hamptons’…Governor, aren’t the Hamptons’ part of New York State?

Dems’ demand for ‘slush fund’ in aid package threatens to derail PPP extension; yet, the Republicans get the blame.  If we are trying to help those who are out of work due to government restrictions on businesses, why are democrats demanding bail outs to city and states?  Now is not the time to just hand over money to governments who never set aside money for emergencies or worse spent money they did not have by projecting rosy revenues.  The money they are talking about comes from us, every working person, and quite frankly, we don’t have extra money to give to governments that failed to plan.

Surprisingly, the Democrats and Republicans do agree on one subject:  America has lost confidence in mainstream media.

Deroy Murdock: Trump is right about vote fraud — here’s proof

The Foundation for Economic Education writes why the rule of law Is vanishing in the age of COVID-19.  (It is gratifying to note how they point out the hypocrisy of our very own Emperor Cuomo.)

Did anyone ask the Emperor if his brother Chris has returned to his Manhattan home?  Cuomo begs rich New Yorkers to leave Hamptons, return to NYC: ‘Come over, I’ll cook!’  Here is what the NY Post editorial board has to say about the wealthy fleeing from New York.

The Pot Industry won’t like this headline:  Weed is not good for your heart, studies say.  CPNYS stands by its position that marijuana is still a Schedule I drug; and according to the FDA, Schedule 1 drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.

Politics and the Pandemic through Governor Cuomo’s eyes…

Michael Gormley’s report on the joint hearings held by the legislature yesterday regarding the nursing home COVID-19 deaths is here.   Fox News’ meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both her in-laws, responds to the hearing here.

The Emperor really has colossal chutzpah calling the president’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic “the worst government blunder in modern history.”  This from the Governor who ordered nursing homes to take COVID-19 patients, knowing that it posed a threat like “fire through dry grass.”  What astonishes me, is that Andrew Cuomo believes what he is saying and is completely oblivious to what his administration is responsible for.  The media have put him on a pedestal due to their own disdain for President Trump, thereby allowing Andrew Cuomo to continue the façade of his own responsibility.  Andrew Cuomo cannot deny that New York State’s death rate is 168 per 100,000, second only to Connecticut.  Governor Andrew Cuomo has nothing, absolutely nothing, to crow about or blame President Trump about when it comes to the handling of COVID-19 in New York State.  What is even more disturbing about the Emperor’s statement, is that it was made when the Joint Legislative Hearings were being conducted and his own political party was not throwing soft balls, yet, he still did his best to grab the headlines by making outrageous statements.  Unacceptable.  His actions show quite clearly that it is all about his political future (yet, he decries the politics of the pandemic and the press covers that) and not about the people he took an oath to protect.

Critically ill COVID-19 patients make quick recovery with treatment RLF-100.

A federal judge upends NYS Election Law by ordering mail-in ballots to be opened.  Just so you know, the Judge, Analisa Torres, was appointed by former president Barack Obama, who has called for mail-in ballots in this November’s elections; Mail-in ballots, as opposed to Absentee Ballots.  Absentee ballots have a long history; mail-in’s do not.  Here is a Washington Times article on the debacle.

How pathetic is this headline:  Ex-New York Times writer Bari Weiss says paper ‘living in fear of an online mob’   “… when you are living in fear of an online mob, you know, all it takes is a dozen people to repeat a lie about you — that you’re a racist, that you’re a transphobe, that you’re a bigot — for that lie to become true and that’s extremely dangerous.”  At least Ms. Weiss recognizes the power of the cancel culture and has been willing to stand up against it.  It didn’t take long for the once great NY Times to devolve into the cowering Grey Lady.

No ID to vote; but, some of the same elected officials want biometrics to purchase tobacco/alcohol…

One really must try hard to understand the logic of the elected democrat officials in New York State.  Assemblywoman Latrice Walker, D-Brooklyn, recently introduced legislation that seeks to require biometrics, fingerprints and/or an eye scan and/or facial recognition, in order to verify one’s age for the purchase of alcohol or tobacco.  To elected democrats this appears to be important; however, when it comes to voting no proof of citizenship, age or residence is required.  Someone, please explain their logic, or better yet, explain how they get elected.

Logic fails me in this situation also; democrats demand the tax returns of Donald J. Trump and say that debates are not necessary?

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) also points out the lack of logic most democrats seem to suffer from in this article:  Economists vs. Common Sense; If you pay people not to work, fewer will work. Except at Yale, it seems.  From the article:  “Senate Republicans have offered to extend the enhanced benefit by $200 weekly for two months, which would still allow many low-wage workers to make as much as they did working. Democrats are demanding that the extra $600, which expired on July 31, be extended into 2021. If you subsidize not working, you get less work.”  We all know the media extol Sen. Schumer and Speaker Pelosi for their ‘standing strong’ for the working man; but the media fails to acknowledge that that same working man is the person who pays the taxes that allows the government to pay the benefit, if they are not working (and paying the taxes) where is the money coming from?  Simple question; yet ignored by the main stream media.  If unemployment is as rampant as the press proclaims, where is the logic in Schumer, Pelosi, almost all democrats and their partners in the main stream media?  Government does not sell a product for people to invest in, they take their money from working men and women, or perhaps they believe there really is a golden goose, whose ending they have chosen to ignore.

Chairman Kassar’s wrap up this week discusses our National Affairs Platform, Congressman Nadler’s fake news and our Facebook interview with noted author and China expert Gordon Chang.

National Affairs Platform

The Conservative Party is committed to preserving the history of our great country and the men and women, who through their courage and fortitude, make this nation great. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Benjamin Franklin set us on a course that allowed us to improve our nation, to lift out of poverty millions of people, to guarantee religious freedom for all, and to offer unlimited opportunity for all its citizens. We are committed to preserving this legacy by honoring those who made this a reality.

In conjunction with our re-nominating of President Trump and Vice President Pence, we will be publishing our National Affairs platform on our website that was recently adopted by our Party’s Executive Committee. Here are a few highlights:

The Economy:

After decades of losing millions of manufacturing jobs overseas, the Conservative Party applauds the Trump Administration policies that has dramatically reversed the outflow of jobs. America is creating jobs at home at a faster pace than ever before. In addition to jobs, wages have increased for most workers and taxes have decreased. The statistics prove that this economic expansion is impacting workers at all levels of society. Black and Hispanic employment is at the highest level ever. We urge the continuation America First economic policies.

Law Enforcement:

The Conservative Party stands with the vast majority of Americans who oppose calls to defund law enforcement. While policing can always be improved, and unfit officers removed, the need for well-trained, adequately staffed law enforcement agencies are necessary to protect the rule of law for all.

The Right to Life:

 Throughout the history of the Conservative Party we have worked with Democrats, Republicans, Liberals, and Independents. In recent years the Democrat Party has taken such a radical turn Left we find ourselves at loggerheads with them on issue after issue. Our differences have become monumental and none more glaring than on the issue of Right to Life. Democrats have adopted the barbaric policy of sanctioning the aborting of children as they are emerging from the mother’s womb. Having lost battle after battle in the abortion wars, the Democrats have adopted a policy that is inhumane.

Foreign Policy:

 The greatest foreign threat to American interests is the People’s Republic of China. Through misguided policies of successive American Administrations, Communist China has risen to become a dangerous force that threatens the United States, our Asian allies, and the entire world.

The prime objective of foreign policy is to prevent war. Following the advice of our first President, George Washington, the United States should avoid entangling alliances. The objectives of our allies are not always identical to our own. We believe all our alliances, including NATO, should be re-evaluated to see if they still serve our national interests.

We believe the United Nations and any international organization that does not uphold the values of freedom and genuine human rights, are failed experiments. We applaud the Trump Administration policies that improved economic relations with Mexico, Canada, and other nations.

A full version of our National Affairs Platform will be available soon on our website. You will be able to read the expanded version of our 13 positions.

Nadler Lies, Calls Antifa Violence a “myth”

As we see images and hear first-hand accounts regarding the carnage being caused in cities across America, New York Congressman Jerry Nadler declared the events and Antifa violence as a “myth.”

Never mind that many of you experienced the rioting first hand, as I have here in New York City. Democrats feel so invincible they now believe they can perpetrate lies regardless of the television coverage showing live fires, stores being vandalized, and police vehicles set on fire.

The Democrats continue to grasp at straws in an effort to discredit President Trump. Now, they are telling the American people that there aren’t any violent protests. Blatant lies cast by shameless, far left liberals, who thrive off chaos and wish to see harm done in American cities to cause unrest and division.

If Rep. Nadler is interested, I will personally pay for his travel to Seattle, Washington where Antifa thugs and protesters have been anything other than peaceful.

Facebook Live with Gordon Chang

 I was happy to be joined last night by Fox News Contributor, Author, Columnist, and renowned China expert Gordon Chang for a Facebook live discussion. We covered many topics including COVID19, The Houston consulate closing, the 2020 elections, and much more.

Governor Cuomo needs a math lesson…

Who said the two major political parties that are the players in Washington, DC, can’t agree in this strange political year?  Yesterday, both parties proved they have a “common enemy” called Big Tech, albeit for different reasons.  In today’s “cancel culture” world, this is a good sign; political parties – and individuals, colleges, big and small businesses, etc. – are allowed, no, they should be encouraged to reasonably discuss different opinions.  Most Americans agree as evidenced by Big Tech’s facing backlash (and the Washington, DC circuit is on the same page.)  Since @cpnys is currently suspended on Twitter, (the 3rd time this calendar year, in March for 30 days, in May for 16 days and currently since July 10) we understand the frustration of being silenced without any explanation of why we have been silenced.  Personally I cannot understand why Twitter Greenlights Ayatollah’s Calls for Genocide, while that very same platform has removed Trump tweets for ‘glorifying violence.’  I have asked the Twitter powers that be that question and am waiting for a reply; however, I am smart enough to know I shouldn’t hold my breath.  As we have noted; this November’s election is about America’s future, the America we love and admire for being the greatest nation that freedom loving people long to be a part of; or the America the progressive, undereducated, left want America to be.

Anyone who didn’t see this coming must have been living under a rock without access to reality.  Knowing that, it still is daunting when you see the actual numbers.  COVID-19 is still causing havoc and as long as people keep choosing to ignore the recommendations, the economy will continue to falter.  People are eager to get back to work, sports and weekend relaxation, our normal routines and our economy will recover…it is up to you.

More disappointing news for New York State residents:  State Pension Fund Lost Money in 2020, Pointing to Higher Costs Ahead.

This is so disingenuous coming from the person who issued Gov. Cuomo’s order to return patients to nursing homes, to say nothing of where it is published.  I seriously doubt that the readers of Rolling Stone even know about the Cuomo/Zucker order, thereby not understanding just how duplicitous the article really is.

Cuomo: Taxing wealthiest New Yorkers won’t cover COVID-related deficit.  Translation:  Everyone is going to pay more in taxes; especially if the democrats continue to have a strangled hold on every branch of government.  YOU can change that on November 3!!  We must elect those who understand how crucial it is to have a balance in our government.  This editorial is spot on:  Cuomo’s overreaches neglect the real problems.  Remember, the democrat-controlled legislature gave the Governor/Emperor carte blanche when COVID-19 descended on New York.  What other state legislature also abdicated their responsibility?  It appears from this article that many states had some authority when and if a “state of emergency” is declared, but not to the extent New York’s Emperor/Governor has with the abdication of the democrat-controlled legislature.

File this under:  Governor Cuomo seeks to a “save face” and not let his Restore Mother Nature Bond Act be in the November ballot, knowing full well it would fail.

Do you think Governor Cuomo failed math?  I am beginning to wonder myself.  Governor Cuomo, aka, the Emperor, admits to a $14B shortfall this year and a probable $16B next year, but he is asking Congress for $500B unrestricted aid in the HEALS Act.  So why is he asking for the extra $470B of your money?  Other than stating that NY has not been treated fairly and mentioning a few other shortfalls, there is no indication why the extra $470B is required.

The Emperor adds more states to New York’s COVID-19 quarantine list…

Jarrett Stepman, writes a compelling article in the Daily Signal that explains how imperative it is that Americans understand that America is standing on a precipice trying to decide if the Founding Fathers were heroes or villains.  Far too many young minds have been influenced by those who see America’s Founding Fathers as villains and those of us who see them has heroes and still believe in the American Dream are unaware of how much damage has been done over the last 20 or so years.  The NY Times 1619 Project is masquerading as truth and demanding to be the recognized as America’s true history.  What we are seeing now, throughout our country, is not about to end due to zealous beliefs our younger generation have been inoculated with.  We have said it before, this November election for President, Congress and state Legislatures’ is for the future.  Will America continue to be the beacon of freedom throughout the world or will it become another monumental failure based on the assumption that the 1619 Project is based on truth?   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ever expanding squad, including Joe Biden, is counting on the latter.

Dennis Prager writes in Townhall.com; Anti-Americanism: The New Anti-Semitism

What planet is Congressman Nadler living on?

First the Emperor told us he didn’t have to self-quarantine upon his return from his trip to Georgia (to explain how to cope with COVID-19) now we learn that the Emperor, who has mandated that every person in NYS wears a mask when they cannot maintain the proper 6 foot distancing, didn’t wear a mask while hugging the Savannah, GA mayor.  So typical of our “do as I say; not as I do” Emperor/Governor.

Governor Cuomo continues to wield his power by fast-tracking appointments to the New York State Financial Control Board.

Cuomo: Next Two Weeks Will Determine State Budget Cuts.  It won’t only be cuts; taxes will rise.  As anyone who has returned to getting their hair cut or nails done, the prices these small businesses charge for their services have had nominal increases to make up for the loss of income.  Food costs have risen as well as various other items.  Brace yourselves; life is about to become more expensive for all of us.

Intellectual Takeout reprinted Ryan McMaken’s article for Mises Institute, titled, Using Statistics to Get Your Way in Politics.  It is an interesting article in that it points out how certain statistics are being used to gain power by politicians…our Governor being one who did so masterfully.

Any doubt?  More states, others added to New York coronavirus quarantine list.  But, he does make an exception for sports;  Cuomo invites all MLB teams to play in New York state amid COVID-19 issues.

The Lincoln Project is just another way for hacks to milk (liberal) donors.

I have listened and watch a fair amount of Congressional Hearings, today’s, Chaired by Congressman Jerold Nadler, is disgraceful, rude, and unbecoming.  When did the members of the majority decide to act like a group of college kids enjoying too many drinks on a Saturday night; they wouldn’t let anyone outside their group say a word, limits each other to questions that only require a yes or no answer, and tell them they are intruding on their time? There was not one scintilla of respect of the United States Attorney General William Barr. Here is a quick assessment by Guy Benson:  ‘Shame on You:’ House Democrats’ Idiotic Hearing With Attorney General Barr.

The Emperor has a Freudian slip…

Isn’t it amazing that so many on the left decry the use of large sums of money in politics, except when it is George Soros giving it out to them?

The Atlantic, not known for a conservative view point, warns voters that the first large scale test of mail-in voting in the pandemic has left one in five New Yorkers with their votes tossed out.  “New York is a solidly Democratic state, with a Democratic governor, and all the officials who matter said they were committed to expanding voting by mail and other options. And it was a disaster (emphasis added by cpnys).” One has to give The Atlantic kudos for pointing out one of the problems with being dependent on mail-in (absentee voting), but it fails to note the strong possibility of fraud, which is the bigger problem.  While credit is given to The Atlantic, it is still written from a democratic point of view by never mentioning the probability of a true election disaster (fraud) with government’s encouraging absentee voting.

The WSJ (subscription required)  writes that New York Lawmakers Work to Avoid Problems With Absentee Ballots.    With democrats having complete control of the legislature, any proposal put forward by them, would not address the real concerns of absentee voting, those being fraud.   The article notes “… thousands of ballots have been invalidated because they weren’t postmarked by June 23 or the voter didn’t sign the back of the envelope.” Both solid reasons for invalidating the absentee ballots which is necessary to maintain a semblance of honesty.  Remember they passed automatic voter registration for those who use state agencies without confirming they are a New York citizen.  According to this WSJ article, Election Officials Are Vulnerable to Email Attacks, Report Shows, emailing is also vulnerable. New York isn’t the only state with problems:  New Jersey’s All-Mail Vote Debacle Is a Warning for November.  Let’s all resolve to vote the old-fashioned way:  In person on November 3rd.

One more WSJ article, What Else Cuomo Crushed, which points out that NY’s economy has suffered the worst job losses in the Northeast.  (It seems that the Emperor has a new nemesis to blame for his failures.)

Cuomo blames NY Post for rising COVID-19 rates in Florida and Arizona.  The rates of infections are rising; New York currently has 416K total cases with 32,506 deaths, Florida has 424K with 5,853 deaths.  Why do you leave that fact out, Governor?  Far too many people have died from COVID-19, but, making it political Governor Cuomo, is immature and trying to deflect the horrendous number of deaths in New York’s nursing homes.  It appears that the Emperor has a new villain to blame:  Cuomo Blames Fed ‘Trusted Traveler’ Ban For Early COVID-19 Spread In NY.

How is the Emperor going to explain or blame someone for this?  Cuomo’s coronavirus-only hospital became deadly amid shortages of meds, PPE: insiders.

Today’s NY Post editorial chides the Emperor with their pithy editorial that ends with this, “We’re fine paying the rent. We’re fine being the whipping boy for Cuomo’s passing the buck on nursing-home deaths. Because if we’re annoying him that much, it means one thing — he knows we’re right.”  Yes, he does, so do we.

Westchester County fought the good fight and Secretary Ben Carson, along with President Trump, resolved the contentious 2009 court ordered settlement to meet fair housing requirements in 2017.  The democrats have not, nor will they ever change their desire to fundamentally change America; they are currently winning and will continue to do so if we do not fight for what we believe in:  The American Dream; the dream that has empowered those willing to work for it, it has lifted countries out of poverty and lets freedom ring throughout the world.  Pay attention, get involved.

President Trump Warns Bill de Blasio to Get Control of Crime in NYC

 President Trump made it loud and clear to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio this week; get control of the crime wave, or he will, as he said he would not hesitate to send federal law enforcement officers to restore law and order back to the city.

New York City has seen a dramatic increase in shootings, shooting victims, and murder since the disbanding of the plain clothed anti-crime unit just over a month ago.

The Mayor responded to the President by threatening to sue the federal government if additional law enforcement was indeed sent to NYC. However, in a clear attempt to make it seem as if he is in control, Mayor de Blasio ordered the removal of Occupy City Hall protestors that have been camping out in City Hall Park for the last month, defacing and degrading city municipal buildings in lower Manhattan.

The move was made only after President Trump threatened to intervene, making it clear de Blasio believes the President will step in and do the Mayors job for him.

State Senate GOP attempts to Rescind Governor’s Emergency Powers

New York State Democrats voted down the Republican conferences amendment to rescind Governor Cuomo’s emergency powers on Wednesday making it clear they have no interest in carrying out their duties as elected officials, nor do they care to be a part of important legislative issues unless it involves raising your taxes, late term abortion, or releasing criminals out on the street with no bail.

However, the Democratic conference was able to come together on one piece of legislation; automatic voter registration.

The Conservative Party is vehemently opposed to this new law. Voting is one of the privileges a citizen in New York state has and a responsible citizen takes the time to register to vote. With the passage of this bill, New Yorkers, many who are here illegally and others who are not citizens of New York, will be automatically registered to vote just by their interaction with certain state agencies listed in the bill. The bill tout’s automatic registration as a modernization of our current registration system, and states unequivocally that this proposal will increase the efficiency of voter registration, save money, increase the accuracy of voter lists, prevent disfranchisement of eligible citizens, promote greater participation and reduce incidents of registration and voter fraud, this has not been proven in states that have adopted similar legislation.

Automatic voter registration is a ruse to dilute legitimate votes cast by citizens who want to vote; those who take the effort to register and cast their votes. Automatic voter registration does not guarantee the person is eligible to vote, as we learned when this same body enacted the Green Light Law.

One party control in Albany has, and will continue, to set New York State back as Democrats continue to prioritize all the wrong things. As crime spikes statewide and police are vilified, they could not even get behind the men and women in uniform to support a package that would protect police officers from attack.

Elections matter and they have consequences; if we cannot make strides in taking back State Senate and Congressional seats, lawlessness will ultimately prevail in New York.

Dutchess County Conservative Party Rallies to Support the Police

 This past Saturday, the Dutchess County Conservative Party organized a very successful rally in support of law enforcement. I believe these events to be critical, as it is important to show our men and women in uniform they are not alone.

New Yorker’s want to feel safe and enjoy a good quality of life. Our law enforcement work day in and day out to provide us with just that.

Thank you Don Minichino, Terri Sheehan, Phil Polizotto, and Mert Melfa for all your hard work in Dutchess.

Bronx Conservative Party

 The Bronx County Conservative Party is making incredible strides under new Chairman Patrick McManus. They have increased their activity locally and digitally throughout the last two months and I want to take this opportunity to thank Chairman McManus and his committee.

It is important we take advantage of every opportunity to spread our message of common sense and decency.

CONSERVATIVES CALL LATEST DEMOCRATIC ELECTION LAW CHANGE A BLATANT POLITICAL MANEUVER TO DILUTE LEGITIMATE VOTES.

Brooklyn, NY – Today will go down in history as the day the Democrat controlled legislature changed election law to allow those who use the services of state agencies to automatically enroll as a New York State voter.

Voting is one of the privileges a citizen in New York state has and a responsible citizen takes the time to register to vote.  With the passage of this bill, New Yorkers, many who are here illegally and others who are not citizens of New York, will be automatically registered to vote just by their interaction with certain state agencies listed in the bill.  The bill tout’s automatic registration as a modernization of our current registration system, and states unequivocally that this proposal will increase the efficiency of voter registration, save money, increase the accuracy of voter lists, prevent disfranchisement of eligible citizens, promote greater participation and reduce incidents of registration and voter fraud, this has not been proven in states that have adopted similar legislation.

Automatic voter registration is a ruse to dilute legitimate votes cast by citizens who want to vote; those who take the effort to register and cast their votes.  Automatic voter registration does not guarantee the person is eligible to vote, as we learned when this same body enacted the Green Light Law.

The lack of accountability, again proven by the Green Light Law, increases the possibility of fraud, especially, if every aspect of this automatic voter registration is completed electronically which is available by this ill-advised political maneuver.

If Emperor Cuomo ever ran a small business, he would put himself out of work.

The Emperor is at it again, changing mid-steam and making it impossible for small businesses to keep up with his ever-changing rules.  It has become very obvious that this man has never held a job in the real world, couldn’t run a business, and couldn’t keep employees due to his constant changing how things are done.  Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new bar rules are killing NYC businesses.  One should also note it is killing the moral of owners and patrons.  How much are they expected to endure, Emperor Cuomo?

Today’s NY Post editorial that we agree with states:  With COVID-19 deaths near zero and economy on its knees, NYC must reopen wide.

Governor Cuomo admits NYC is in a state of decline, but no help is needed and no need for federal involvement.  So, Governor, you may be surprised that I see that as a semi-positive statement.  Since there is no need for federal involvement, you won’t be looking for a federal bailout to pay for all the costs associated with this crime wave and loss of revenue from the closing of New York.  New York must be doing better financially or are you counting on that pot-of-gold at the end of a rainbow?  Knowing how the legislature thinks, it may just be relying on the pot.  (I pray they won’t slip this into law as they scramble to end this very strange session.)  No matter how you look at it, New York is broke and looking for ways to recover monies lost to COVID-19.  Senate Minority Leader, Rob Ortt, writes this in today’s NY Post:  NY Democrats’ insane bid to bleed wealthy — when they’re already fleeing state.

We find it rather amusing that failed presidential candidate, Beto O’Rourke, took time from his skateboarding, and said that Texas desperately needs a Governor like Andrew Cuomo, “someone who’s going to be guided by the facts and the science and the truth, and whose sole mission is going to be saving the lives of those that he is elected to serve.”  He obviously missed all the articles on the mishandling of COVID-19 patients sent to nursing homes.  And he obviously doesn’t understand math; New York’s population 19.4 million, 32,228 deaths.  Texas’ population 29.9 million, 4,522 deaths.  Hey Beto, New York would welcome Governor Abbott, but, now that we have informed you of the real Governor Cuomo record, do you still think Texas would be better with Governor Andrew Cuomo?  You two boys would have so much in common; he’s yours if you want him, you can skateboard and he will drive his muscle cars in the wide-open spaces of Texas.  And we would have a responsible governor who knows how to govern.

This is disappointing, but not surprising.  Sad that Americans are hesitant to express their political views, I would venture that most that are hesitant lean or are conservative.  Never fear; we always express our political views.  (And if you help support us, we can spread our views further.)

New York’s Emperor Strikes Again; 10 more states added to quarantine list.

New York is digging a financial hole that may take years to recover from.  NY suspends licenses of four bars, including one on LI, and adds 10 states to quarantine list, Cuomo says.  Governor Cuomo is seriously doing more harm to New York than anyone thought possible.  It is time that Governor pays attention to the science of the virus; he is overreacting to his initial deadly mistake of forcing nursing homes to admit/readmit COVID-19 positive patients.  What he is doing now does not mitigate his earlier judgement, in fact, it is obvious that New York’s death rate – what he fears most will inch up again – is due to his mishandling the COVID-19 crisis.  It is also a problem that most of the main stream media fails to recognize that fact.  For the governor to say follow the facts and science on a regular basis, he fails to follow his own advice; but that is nothing new to those of us who have followed his career.

Nicole Gelinas writes in City Journal on the Underground, a Pandemic of Lawlessness

Chicago says no to President Trump’s offer to help; Portland condemns federal troops being there, Cuomo sits in front of a photo in the daily news telling cops to do their jobs, yet all three cities have made it possible for lawlessness to survive.  Those of us who are still proud Americans want this to end.  President Trump, we have your back.  It is really a shame that progressive only have their lust for power driving them and they ignore, not they completely try to discredit what President Trump is doing for all Americans who want the opportunity to live the American Dream.

Glad to see we are not the only ones calling Andrew, Emperor.  ‘Emperor’ Andrew Cuomo’s insane ‘eat if you’re drinking at a bar’ order.  It would have been fun twittering this out on Saturday; if we had access to our twitter account.  This is the 3rd time we have been denied access and it is getting to be absurd, that “bots” think we are robots also.  Conservatives: we need an alternative to Twitter and please don’t tell me Parler; Parler promotes free speech, but not an alternative to Twitter, far too convoluted to use and reach many people.

The Hill has this article, Quarantines for out-of-state visitors exceeds governors’ emergency authority, dated July 14, 2020.  We happen to agree that this exceeds the emergency authority of the tri-state governors, and today, upon learning that Governor Andrew Cuomo is going to Georgia (one of the states on the quarantine list) we can’t help but wonder, if he will follow his own advice and self-quarantine upon his return?  Or is the Emperor above the rules he makes for others?

Trump vs. Cuomo:  Trump says Gov. Cuomo must end NYC ‘crime wave’ — or he will step in.  Trump: “And then the police are afraid to do anything. I know New York very well, I know the police very well, New York’s Finest, and the fact is, they’re restricted from doing anything, they can’t do anything.”

In all honesty, crime is out of control in New York, Chicago, Portland and far too many other places.  The wild west was nothing compared to what is going on today.  Pray that America and Americans find their way…soon, very soon.
