With New Coronavirus Threat, New York Governor Cuomo Wants To Be A “Temporary” Dictator

(Right Country) – Never let a good crisis go to waste, right?

That’s the Democrats’ motto right about now.

The executive emergency powers of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have been amended to allow him to take “temporary” dictatorial powers to prevent the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.

Big League Politics reports:

Asm. Félix W. Ortiz of Brooklyn introduced Assembly Bill 9953 to amend the term “disaster” in the Executive Law to encompass “disease outbreak” and “impending or urgent” disaster preparedness and response. This has been pushed over fears of the coronavirus outbreak.

The legislative summary for A.9953 reads as follows: “Under current Executive Law, the Governor has the ability to suspend provisions of any statute during a disaster. These suspensions may not last longer than 30 days and may be terminated by a concurrent resolution of the Legislature. This bill adds the ability of the Governor to issue any directive or suspend any statute during a declared state of disaster.”

In addition to drastically expanding executive power, the legislation would also grant Cuomo the ability to spend $40 million to combat the coronavirus. Cuomo signed A.9953 into law on Tuesday, expanding his own power substantially.

On Tuesday, Cuomo reported that there have been two cases reported in his populous state.

The Democrats have also continued to spread their hysteria this week and to try to find a way to blame its spread on President Donald Trump, including those who are vying to replace him in 2021.

“The coronavirus has already arrived here in America, and make no mistake: The incompetence in the White House is endangering lives and hurting our economy,” declared former New York City Mayor and Democrat presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg.

While former candidate and billionaire Tom Steyer said, “He’s just discovering two months later, ‘Whoa, this could hurt my reelection attempts. That’s how superficial a man he really is. He is incompetent. This is his Katrina event, where it’s like ‘Whoa, I have to do a job?’ Who knew?”

President Trump has struck back against the partisan attacks from Democrats regarding the coronavirus.

“Washington Democrats are trying to politicize the coronavirus, denigrating the noble work of our public health professionals, but honestly not so much anymore,” Trump said during a rally in Charlotte, N.C. “Everyone appreciates these are the greatest professionals in the world at what they do. We’re actually helping a lot of other countries.”

“The political attacks from some of the Democrats really must stop. We’ve really got to work together on this one to safeguard our people,” Trump added.

However, the Democrats will not hesitate to use a public health crisis to gain control, and the brazen power-grab in the New York legislature – which could give Gov. Cuomo absolute power – is evidence of that.

  1. Considering that this Pres has debunked Scientists how dangerous this can be and having a huge shortage of TEST KITS to test people-plus the VP has said from 1 million kits will be coming, and they not only haven’t received them in hospitals etc but that’s vastly under what’s needed!!
    So far known people are 200+ and 12 deaths-and this narcissist is only caring about how it looks on his re-election and the stock market plunge. Someone better take charge from our Coronavirus In Chief denier and his idiotic “hunch” it will just go away-when warm weather comes. With self serving talk like that and misinformation he’s pushing, I wish Trump would go away and let others who know the truth let the public gain knowledge needed. No vaccine for at least 18-to 2 years. It’s one thing to live in your own stupid lies but don’t put in danger the public’s!

  2. Susan from Wikipedia,
    The earliest reported cases in the US began appearing in late March 2009, in California,[118][119] then spread to infect people in Texas, New York, and assorted other states by mid-April. This spread continued across the country’s population and by the end of May had infected citizens in all 50 states. The pattern continued through June of the same year. The total number of confirmed cases varied from 27,717[120] (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed and probable cases) and 25,453 (total of all state confirmed cases) as of June 26, 2009.

    Towards the middle of June 2009, the number of US cases surpassed those of Mexico, which had been the previous leader in diagnosed cases of the disease. Toward the end of June 2009, the number of deaths related to the virus in the US surpassed those of all other countries as well.

    On June 25, the CDC released information revealing that there were more than likely over one million (1,000,000) cases of the disease in the US, most of which had not been reported or diagnosed.[121][122]

    Deaths relating to this new strain of influenza began appearing in the US in late April, and by early June 15, states had reported fatalities related to or directly occurring from the virus. These deaths totaled at 4,000 as of November 15, 2009. The CDC distributed a vaccine for the novel flu strain.[123] using mechanisms already in place for its Vaccines for Children (VFC) program.[124]

    On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States. On November 12, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with 2009 A H1N1 and 4,000 Americans have died.[125]

    Where were you when Obama mismanaged this?

    • Yes, Fredo where were you when SARS and Ebola were let loose on the world? You couldn’t blame President Trump for those too, not by a long shot Fredo!
