As the virus spreads, states are cutting off travel from New York; soon, this will include other cities as well. Rather than accept there needs to be a restriction on travel, the Governor of New York, Gov. Cuomo is now threatening lawsuits against states that are trying to contain this virus.
One of the greatest dangers we face is an epicenter of the highest cases of virus having their citizens flee to other areas, thus spreading the virus to other population centers, yet this is what New Yorkers are doing. Now Cuomo is threatening other states telling people from New York they are not welcome; they better let them in or face lawsuits.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is threatening to sue Rhode Island over its new coronavirus policy that calls for police to stop cars with New York license plates and has seen National Guard members go door-to-door to ask if anyone has arrived from the Empire State.
Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo — like Cuomo, a Democrat — announced the drastic new policies last week to limit the spread of the coronavirus. New York is the epicenter of the outbreak in the U.S., confirming more than 52,000 cases of COVID-19 and recording more than 700 deaths.
“I understand the goal … but there’s a point of absurdity, and I think what Rhode Island did is at that point of absurdity,” said Cuomo. “We have to keep the ideas and the policies we implement positive rather than reactionary and emotional.”
As this virus spreads, we can expect to see other states do this to try to contain the spread. While New York may not like it, I would shut down all travel from the state, then put up exchange points where truckers could bring in the product to a collection point, then have truckers from New York pick up the trailers and bring them into the city.
It seems that Governor Cuomo is intent on complaining, but even though he is complaining about the lack of response, one can question his commitment to stopping this spread.
Part of the problem is this is not going to stop in just New York City; this is also starting to spread in other major population centers, one has to ask, how are we going to stop this? The only way I see it being done is to shut off access in and out of major population centers until the virus is contained or an antibiotic treatment or immunization is found. Travel needs to be stopped now, anyone that does come from the city, and any other hotbed of this coronavirus needs to be put in quarantine until they have sat for 14 days after they have traveled.
Naturally, any such move would be seen as racist, that is the buzz word of the left, if you talk with facts, you must be racist, dare to speak the truth, racism again, ask for their evidence of statements like “White Privilege.” the only reason you don’t see the truth is you are a racist, so why not throw this into the pot as well?
At this point, I have seen governors move quickly to stop the spread, yet many didn’t. The epicenters of the virus at this point are in Democratic-controlled cities; one has to ask why? The reason is straightforward, if you look at Cuomo and others, they chose to spend their money on liberal ideals rather the preparedness, when Cuomo was offered respirators for times of need, he refused, instead of spending state resources on frivolous things.
When the virus did strike, it was the Mayor of New York, De Blasio and his administration that told New Yorkers to go out and mingle, people like AOC told people to make sure they go to Chinese restaurants or they would be racist, others encouraged people to go to movie theaters, parades, and other large gatherings, now they are shocked that this virus is spreading like wildfire.
Further, the blame they are placing on Trump for not doing anything is absurd, while they were trying to remove Trump and make him fight for his political life, these same Democrats were telling people in their cities not to do anything, the threat of this virus was a hoax.
As we saw over the weekend, facts mean little, it is the rhetoric, the Democrats scream of inaction, then ignore the aid that is coming out of Washington DC. In other cases, they lie, like with Cuomo, who said he was not receiving any respirators from the federal government, then had to eat his words and admit that they did receive them, they are sitting in warehouses.
One has the president with leaders in the field giving briefings every day, this is something the Democrats are now talking about silencing, the other is handled the way the Democrats have, do nothing, tell people to congregate, then blame Trump when they find what they told people to do is now causing this virus to spread like crazy.
What we are seeing are two different ways to handle this crisis. One has the president with leaders in the field giving briefings every day; this is something the Democrats are now talking about silencing, the other is handled the way the Democrats have, do nothing, tell people to assemble, then blame Trump when they find what they told people to do is now causing this virus to spread like crazy.
Once more we see a total failure of leadership by the left, but they are great at one thing, blaming the other side for their own actions, or in this case, lack of action.
Once more, we see a total failure of leadership by the left, but they are great at one thing, blaming the other side for their actions, or in this case, lack of effort. This travel ban should, and most likely will be put in place from areas that are facing strong infection rates, this has nothing to do with politics or racism, as the left will tell you, it has to do with containment and saving lives.
