    New York City weighs closing parks, playgrounds and streets to enforce social distancing, Gov. Cuomo says

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to close some streets in New York City and may close parks and playgrounds to contain the coronavirus outbreak by reducing density.

    State and local officials are taking a tougher stance because city residents aren’t following the state’s guidance encouraging people to maintain a distance of at least six feet from each other, he said.

    “The plan is going to pilot closing streets in New York City because we have much less traffic in New York City. We have many fewer vehicles in New York City. Open streets,” by opening the streets, fewer people will congregate in the parks, he said in a press conference Wednesday. “People want to walk. They want to go out and get some air. You want a less dense area, so pilot closing streets to cars, opening streets to pedestrians.”

    New York is the hardest-hit state in the country, with the number of cases doubling about every three days.

    Default Anyone notice?

    It appears the writing is on the wall over Cuomo now. Betcha he's doing all of this Constant TV stuff with an ulterior motive!!

    Betcha he's gonna run against Sleepy Joe, and get the Nomination at the Democrat Convention!

    I DON'T have any money to Bet on this, but he's been on tv more than the President, and the Corona Docs.

    Let's ask Joe?
    I may be older than most. I may say things not everybody will like.
    But despite all of that. I will never lower myself to the level of Liars, Haters, Cheats, and Hypocrites.

    He very well may be but I would bet 2024, along with some other new cretins.

    and yes, we're not the only ones discussing:

    https://hotair.com/archives/jazz-sha...-andrew-cuomo/

    ...

    So it’s technically possible to do at the convention or even later if Biden agrees to drop out or otherwise can’t continue. But both paths are complicated could lead to even worse results for the Democrats if things go totally pear-shaped on them.


    The last thing I’ll offer is a warning to Democrats that Cuomo’s moment in the sun recently doesn’t erase his very problematic past, so even if they were inclined to tank Uncle Joe, they might want to consider someone else. Let’s not forget that there are more skeletons in Cuomo’s closet than in your average Halloween haunted house. During his time as governor, Cuomo has been involved in so many campaign finance, fundraising and appropriation scandals that books could be written on the subject. So many of his associates, cronies and former aides are either currently in prison or avoided jail time with plea deals on things like bid-rigging that they could start their own prison baseball team. Others were convicted of bribing judges and one of his longest-serving aides who he frequently described as being “more like a brother” got six years for lining his own pockets out of a massive, failed “stimulus” scheme known as the Buffalo Billion.


    Somehow, despite all of the corruption that’s been dredged up in the Cuomo administration, the Governor himself has always somehow managed to slip the noose and not be hauled in front of a judge himself. Granted, if he suddenly became the nominee, I have no doubt that CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and the Washington Post would do their best to provide cover for him and rarely if ever, mention any of these stories. But there would be Trump advertising fodder aplenty and the word would eventually get out. That’s why I don’t think Cuomo would survive a prolonged, hard-fought campaign. The only way he might be able to win would be in a very short, ambush-style race where he showed up as the nominee at the last minute and raced to the finish line before the opposition had a chance to catch their breath.

    No, Biden's got this locked down. The only person that the DNC could throw it to now is Bernie, and there's no way in hell they'd do that.

    The only other alternative would be if Biden suddenly completed his dementia swan dive publicly - which is becoming more likely - and nominating his VP instead.

    The VP that the DNC inserts is the one they really want to be President. That choice isn't Joe's to make anymore, that right was signed over to the DNC when they rescued his campaign by forcing the others out and endorsing him.

    If you've watched any Biden clips lately, they're sad. He's clearly senile or suffering from dementia and it really is elder abuse. Yet, his wife and the DNC continue with this because they desperately don't want Bernie to sink the lot of them. It will be when it's too close to the election to change candidates when they put in the VP.

    STUNNING! Cuomo Refused to Invest in More Ventilators for Pandemics – Instead Invested in Boondoggle Solar Panel Farm

    As reported earlier New York Governor Andrew Cuomo dismissed purchasing emergency ventilators for the state in case of a pandemic. Instead the Cuomo administration organized a medical panel in the state to design a color-coded system to label patients on who would receive the ventilator during a pandemic.The TGP report written by contributor Kristinn Taylor was based on a column published earlier this month by the esteemed former New York Lieutenant Governor Betsy McCaughey (who served under Governor George Pataki), a February report by the New York Times and a 2015 press release by the Cuomo administration.

    And we also discovered evidence from a New York State Health Department important report on why the decision was made to reject purchasing emergency ventilators.
    The extra ventilators were not purchased due to funding concerns.
    Page 30 of 272 pages.

    The Cuomo Administration rejected the purchase of the ventilators and as The New York Times reported they focused on lotteries and death panels instead.

    Real Clear Politics reported:
    At its most severe, coronavirus attacks the lungs, making it impossible to breathe without a ventilator. Landing in the hospital on a ventilator is bad. But worse is being told you can’t have one. After learning that the state’s stockpile of medical equipment had 16,000 fewer ventilators than New Yorkers would need in a severe pandemic, Gov. Andrew Cuomo came to a fork in the road in 2015. He could have chosen to buy more ventilators. Instead, he asked his health commissioner, Howard Zucker to assemble a task force and draft rules for rationing the ventilators they already had.
    That task force came up with rules that will be imposed when ventilators run short. Patients assigned a red code will have the highest access, and other patients will be assigned green, yellow or blue (the worst) depending on a “triage officer’s” decision. In truth, a death officer. Let’s not sugarcoat it. It won’t be up to your own doctor.
    Cuomo could have purchased the additional 16,000 needed ventilators for $36,000 apiece or a total of $576 million in 2015. It’s a lot of money but less than the $750 million he threw away on a boondoggle “Buffalo Billion” solar panel factory. When it comes to state budget priorities, spending half a percent of the budget on ventilators is a no brainer.
    Now the pandemic is actually here. Cuomo’s grim reaper rules will be applied. New York City’s deputy commissioner for disease control Demetre Daskalakis is anticipating “some very serious difficult decisions.” So far, in New York City, 1 out of every 4 people with a confirmed case has been hospitalized, and 44% of them have needed a ventilator.
    In January The New York Post reported on Governor Cuomo’s Buffalo Bust.
