When Mayor de Blasio dragged a half dozen aides and members of his NYPD security detail to his Brooklyn YMCA Monday morning amidst the coronavirus outbreak, fellow fitness enthusiasts were coughing and sneezing—and a mentally ill person was walking around touching the equipment, a gym source said. “It’s crazy that he made his staff and detail come with him to the gym and expose them like that,” the source said.(Snip) There’s also growing frustration from senior aides, who fault the mayor for dithering instead of making decisions, micromanaging instead of leading, and insisting he knows best instead of listening to others,

It’s time that Governor Cuomo declare deBlasio incompetent or insane and remove him from office by whatever means necessary. Everyone else in NY State is working their butts off and this moron sleeps in until noon and does nothing, What’s the line, lead or get out of the way. Time for Comrade Bill to be removed for the sake of the safety of the citizens of NYC.

Warren Wilhelm Jr AKA Bill De Blasio, is an idiot. All he does is scream about President Trump. Warren Wilhelm Jr AKA De Blasio changed his name to sound more "ethnic" What a tool. He has destroyed NYC with his incompetence and poor socialist policies and now the City is run by criminals and the police are stuck dealing with it unable to fight crime because De Blasio won't let them. Pathetic

For some reason Fox News has become New York TV and we are treated to lengthy quasi-presidential bloviating by Cuomo and sometimes de Blathio, neither of whom has either a clue or a chance of ever being the president of our country, thank God. I know. Use the remote. We do, but we shouldn’t have to. Fox has simply run out of tiresome “experts” and “pundits” to foist upon us.

No doubt de Blasio was deflated by President Trump’s comment this morning that he does not deal with de Blasio on matters relating to the Chinese corona virus, but instead deals with Governor Cuomo when it comes to issues involving New York.

Obviously those aides and security detail don't know exactly how special de Blasio is. The little tin pot mayor likes to make people do what they don't want to do, even to the detriment of themselves. I hope de Blasio gets the disease and saunters off to the River Stix.

Washington—Manufacturing giant 3M pushed backed against President Trump in a statement on Friday that suggested it would not comply with a White House order to stop exporting masks to Canada and Latin America. The Trump administration on Thursday invoked the Defense Production Act, compelling 3M to prioritize orders for desperately needed N95 respiratory masks for the US government’s national stockpile.(Snip) “The Administration also requested that 3M cease exporting respirators that we currently manufacture in the United States to the Canadian and Latin American markets,” the Friday morning statement read. “There are, however, significant humanitarian implications of ceasing respirator supplies to healthcare workers in Canada

President Trump said 3M “will have a big price to pay” after he ordered the manufacturing giant to churn out more protective face masks for the coronavirus fight. Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to get more N95 respirators from the Minnesota-based company “after seeing what they were doing with their masks,” he tweeted Thursday evening. Health care workers have been grappling with a shortage of the masks that filter out airborne particles. “Big surprise to many in government as to what they were doing–will have a big price to pay!” the president tweeted.

The FBI warned of concerns over a 'biosecurity risk' from Chinese scientists' research in the US after they intercepted virus samples carried in luggage a year before the coronavirus outbreak. In November 2018—just over a year before the first coronavirus case was recorded in Wuhan—US customs at Detroit Metro Airport stopped a Chinese biologist with three samples labeled 'Antibodies' in his luggage. He told border control that someone he worked with in China had asked him to deliver the vials to a researcher at a US institute. After examining the writing on the vials, customs agents concluded that they believed the materials

Washington—Despite having committed to transferring 2,000 ventilators in military stocks to the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the Department of Health and Human Services to fight the coronavirus outbreak, the Pentagon has not shipped any of them because the agencies have not asked for them or provided a shipping location, the Pentagon's top logistics official said Tuesday. In order to ship the badly needed equipment, the Defense Department has to be given a location to send them by civilian authorities who have to decide where the items are most needed.

The decision of American Navy to relieve the captain who warned publicly of coronavirus on his nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strikes us as the right move. We get that it’s a sad setback for an officer in an incredible command. The minute we read the captain’s letter about the crisis on United States Ship Theodore Roosevelt, though, we saw it as a breach on a matter that should have been kept within the chain of command. That’s easy to say, we understand, for a newspaper whose landlubber of an editor can’t go to Jones Beach without getting seasick. We’ve followed the reports that Democrats on the House Armed Services Committee

We are living through an extraordinary and unprecedented time. It has required us to readjust our lives, our expectations and our plans. The business of politics is no exception. There's been a lot written over these last few days that this upending of normalcy is taking a toll on former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign. After all, in a non-COVID19 world, Biden would be having a great few weeks. Since his big win in South Carolina, Biden had been on a rout — winning big states and small, and building an insurmountable delegate lead. The political news media would be focused on his success.

ABC’s Nightline has returned to its old timeslot with a larger audience after late local news (instead of after Jimmy Kimmel Live). On Wednesday’s show, co-host Byron Pitts ended an interview with Vice President Mike Pence by asking him “not in a political way,” but whether he “talk[s] to God” about feeling remorse for Americans who have died “because of steps the federal government did not take soon enough.”So here we had a journalist ask the Vice President if he prays to the Lord with a heart of repentance for having been responsible for dead Americans. Surely, Chuck Todd would be proud of that question.

The notoriously far-left city of San Francisco has reversed its own ban on plastic bags in response to the spread of the coronavirus, now prohibiting the use of reusable bags as a sanitary measure, according to Politico.The push to ban plastic bags, which leftists have claimed, without evidence, are more likely to cause pollution, had been achieved in many liberal cities, from San Francisco to New York. However, with the fear of spreading the contagious coronavirus, the same bags being used multiple times are more likely to help spread the disease than single-use plastic bags.The move is the latest action taken by San Francisco and the California state government

Evidence for the rainforest suggests the climate was “exceptionally warm.” The rainforest dates back to the mid-Cretaceous when sea levels were around 550 feet higher.

Michael Barbaro, host of the Times podcast "The Daily," shared the map with the text, "In a word....The South." Yet both the NYT article and Barbaro's tweet ignored basic realities about American life that help explain the reasons behind the map — and show that the South is not a uniquely dangerous region during this crisis. In the article, "Where America Didn't Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread," James Glanz dissects cellphone location data from the data intelligence firm Cuebiq.
