New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot resigned after clashing with Mayor Bill de Blasio over how to confront the coronavirus pandemic, The New York Times reported Tuesday.“I leave my post today with deep disappointment that during the most critical public health crisis in our lifetime, that the Health Department’s incomparable disease control expertise was not used to the degree it could have been,” Barbot wrote in her resignation email, a copy of which was shared to TheNYT. Her resignation comes more than two months after the Democratic mayor gave responsibility for the city’s virus contact tracing program to

I dont know anything about the NYC health commission or anything else about NYC local politics, but for someone to have such a cool name as Oxiris I'd be inclined to give a pass.

The resignation goes against Fauci's declaration that comrade Cuomo shepherded the CV-19 correctly. Yeah, he correctly serial killed over 6,500 elderly patients. By the way, the number is actually higher because Cuomo played the numbers game by excluding nursing home deaths if one of them got sent to a hospital and died there instead of in the nursing home.

Former National Security Adviser Susan Rice praised noted deserter Bowe Bergdahl in 2014, saying that Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.” Bergdahl infamously walked off his Army post in Afghanistan in June 2009 and was then captured and held hostage by a Taliban-aligned group for nearly five years. Former President Barack Obama’s administration secured Bergdahl’s release on May 31, 2014 as part of a prisoner swap for five members of the Taliban.Rice defended Bergdahl’s record in a June 1, 2014 ABC News interview, after she was asked if Bergdahl should be punished for deserting. “He is going to be safely reunited with his family.

Facebook and Twitter censored a video clip of President Donald Trump’s recent interview on Fox News’ Fox & Friends over alleged coronavirus “misinformation. Facebook said it removed the video of the interview because President Trump claimed that children have heightened immunity to coronavirus. The Trump campaign stands by this claim, but Facebook disagrees, and used it as an excuse to prevent American citizens using the platform from hearing what their president has to say.This is despite repeated assurances from Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg that the platform will not censor politicians.In a speech at Georgetown University in October 2019,

It was not love at first sight.After Buffalo, New York, couple Nick Weith and Damian Mordecai spotted a grand Victorian-style home on a popular Instagram account called Cheap Old Houses, they drove an hour south to a village called Gowanda (population 2,700) to tour the historic property.Initially, Mordecai, a 39-year-old nonprofit executive, was “less enthused” about the idea of living so far outside the city. But the pair was drawn to the property’s stately brick façade, dramatic slate tile mansard roof and widow’s peak tower. By the time they got back in the car, Mordecai was sold. “We have to buy it,”

Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, as part of the panel’s review of the Russia investigation. Things got interesting when Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, began his time by asking Yates when she was aware “the Obama administration was surveilling” President Trump’s 2016 campaign.Yates engaged in a game of words, saying that when the FBI began spying on Carter Page, he was a former member of the campaign — with an emphasis on former.“The Obama administration was not surveilling the Donald Trump campaign at that point,” Yates said, matter-of-factly.Cruz informed Yates “you don’t get it both ways,” asking the question again.

Sally Yates, who served as Deputy Attorney General during a critical period as the Russia collusion hoax evolved in 2016-17, trashed fired FBI director James Comey during her testimony Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. She readily agreed that Comey went “rogue” in his unauthorized pursuit of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. But that, of course, was stating the obvious. It was too easy. Comey managed to turn himself into a human piñata when he engaged in blatant acts of corruption.Like Comey, Yates was a model of prevarication and insincerity on nearly all other matters. She minimized her own negligence and incompetence

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is begging wealthy New Yorkers to return to the city to save it from economic ruin while fighting off calls from other lawmakers to raise their taxes, a move he fears could permanently drive the top 1 percent out of the city. Thousands of New York City residents fled Manhattan and Brooklyn earlier this year when the city was the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. Many flocked to their second homes in the Hamptons or upstate, while others rented or bought new properties, abandoning their expensive city apartments.Now, six months on with no end to the national nightmare in sight, many are laying down permanent roots.

Kneeling for the national anthem at sporting events used to be the occasional episode of player activism protesting the United States as an evil racist empire. Amid the new 21st century woke revolution however, kneeling has become a key signifier for players and teams to declare which side of the culture wars one sits on. It’s those who love America versus those who hate it, the latter of which despises the American flag and all that it represents as a relic of white supremacy that must be condemned.

New York City's wealthiest neighborhood is grappling with a spike in armed robberies, new data reveals. Manhattan's Upper East Side has seen 27 robberies over the past four weeks - a 286 percent increase when compared to the same period last year, according to the NYPD. Alarmingly, a significant number of those have involved locals being held up at gunpoint. For the entirety of 2019, the Upper East Side only reported four armed robberies. This year, 14 have already been reported. The figures are causing alarm in the ritzy neighborhood, where residents boast an average annual income of $322,400.

Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, signed an executive directive on Wednesday ordering state employees to undergo “implicit bias training.” Executive directives allow the Michigan governor to establish procedures or basic policy for employees of the state’s executive branch. According to the directive, current state employees will be required to undergo “implicit bias training” by the end of this year, while new employees must complete the training as part of the hiring process. While various bias training initiatives have been implemented by government offices in recent months, some research shows that the impact of these initiatives is negligible. Whitmer’s directive

Democrat Senator Mazie Hirono got triggered after Republican Senator Ted Cruz pressed her to condemn Antifa violence. Not only did Hirono refuse to disavow the left-wing savagery, but she walked out of Cruz’s Antifa hearing in a huff. Hirono’s refusal to denounce the Antifa riots, looting, arson, and assaults is like the ostrich that buries its head in the sand, hoping this nullifies reality. Hirono walked out after a testy exchange with Cruz, who was chairing a Senate hearing on the role that Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists are playing in the alarming escalation of violence around the country. Cruz slammed Democrats for not condemning Antifa riots, during

Bill Gates has advocated for pandemic preparedness for years, and famously gave a TED talk in 2015 that warned of the potentially staggering death toll a worldwide pandemic could create. "As awful as this pandemic is, climate change could be worse," Gates said in a blog [snip] "If you want to understand the kind of damage that climate change will inflict, look at COVID-19 and spread the pain out over a much longer period of time. The loss of life and economic misery caused by this pandemic are on par with what will happen regularly if we do not eliminate the world's carbon emissions."
