Coronavirus in NY

Gov. Cuomo is on the verge of being done for good

NYPost
Bob McManus Andrew’s in the soup, that’s for sure. Wrap your head around this: The New York Times is reporting that Gov. Cuomo took time out from coronavirus hot-dogging last June to offer tattoo-placement advice to a just-turned-25-year-old female aide of no particular expertise during a private, closed-door sit-down in......

NY COVID vaccine rollout so bad people are finding appointments for strangers

NYPost
Amy Klein “Can you talk about something else besides vaccines?” my friend Jeff said on the phone. I guess he could think about something else because he lives in California, where the vaccine rollout is smooth and he can simply wait for his doctor to call him when it’s his......

De Blasio’s lame recovery plan is a boon to bureaucrats but won’t end NYC’s Ghost Town

NYPost
Seth Barron Almost a year into Gotham’s devastating lockdown, Mayor de Blasio has announced the appointment of former school-construction chief Lorraine Grillo as “recovery czar” to, in his words, “super-charge” an economic recovery. But a close look at the mayor’s sad, thin recovery plan belies his commitment to the future......

Finally, the bully Gov. Cuomo has been exposed: Devine

NYPost
Miranda Devine Tough contest, but Mayor Putz, Bill de Blasio, is more popular in New York these days than the Granny Killer, Gov. Cuomo. “People would tend to like a bungling idiot more than a homicidal maniac” is how “Bernie and Sid” put it yesterday on their top-rated WABC radio......

With COVID vaccine rolling and cases receding, open up all classrooms!

NYPost
Post Editorial Board Once again, the science proves: Schools pose minimal risk in the spread of COVID-19. The CDC says it. Experts say it. And New York shows it, with just three city schools closed to hybrid in-person learning, out of an abundance of caution, because someone tested positive at......

Standing up to Gov. Cuomo is an ‘ethical duty’ for lawmakers

NYPost
Post Editorial Board With Gov. Cuomo in full “demonize the truth-tellers” mode, the Legislature clearly needs to start getting ready for impeachment, as Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) demands. Kim mentions the governor’s threats to “destroy” him personally if the legislator didn’t go along with Cuomo’s effort to spin his top......

Every slander media flung at Florida’s DeSantis was true of Cuomo

NYPost
Rich Lowry Throughout the pandemic, the media have been excoriatingly harsh on a governor who was slow to act, unnecessarily endangered the lives of the elderly, alienated experts and cooked the numbers. They just thought the governor in question was Florida’s Ron DeSantis, rather than New York’s Andrew Cuomo. After......

Here’s what NYC needs to do to start its economic comeback

NYPost
Steve Cuozzo The ghost-storefront blight represents an existential threat to New York City’s future. Left unaddressed, it will crush the Big Apple’s normally indomitable spirit. Who wants to live or work where blocks of empty storefronts shout “failure” and provide sidewalk loitering grounds for drug dealers and vagrants? Abandoned storefronts......

When it comes to nursing homes, Andrew Cuomo is no Nelson Rockefeller

NYPost
Andrew Stein, Fred Siegel Just a few months ago, New York’s Emmy award-winning governor, Andrew Cuomo, appeared to be riding high. His audaciously titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” was released to high praise from The Washington Post, which described it as an “impressive road map to dealing......

Gov. Cuomo’s nursing home scandal is more than just a coverup

NYPost
Marc Thiessen You’ve heard the expression that the coverup is worse than the crime? Well, in the case of Gov. Cuomo, the opposite might be true. Cuomo is under bipartisan fire after an aide admitted that his administration deliberately delayed releasing information showing the true extent of COVID-19 deaths in......

New York Times wildly exaggerates NYC’s COVID rates to prolong lockdowns

NYPost
Steve Cuozzo Picking on The New York Times these days is almost too easy, as the Gray Lady routinely renounces or corrects false articles and podcasts and fires staffers who aren’t woke enough for its Twitter masthead. The Times should next cancel its daily “Coronavirus Tracker,” which posts infection rates......

Expect more lies, bullying and pandering from a wounded Cuomo

NYPost
Bob McManus So people died, and Cuomo lied, and now you’re up to date on Andrewgate. What’s next? Doubtless a lurch to the left, as the governor moves to protect his most vulnerable flank while preparing for an expected fourth-term re-election bid. Also more lies. Many more. Nonsensical deflections and......

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has wielded dictatorial powers for long enough

NYPost
Betsy McCaughey The stench from Gov. Cuomo’s nursing-home carnage and months-long coverup is finally causing even some Democratic pols in Albany to turn against the governor. At least 14 have now joined Republicans to demand Cuomo be stripped of his pandemic emergency powers. And not a day too soon. Cuomo......

Gov. Cuomo’s ‘heartless’ distortions can’t hide truth: Goodwin

NYPost
Michael Goodwin A second Emmy would not be good enough for that performance. Only an Oscar will do. After all, it takes an uncommon actor to pretend to be telling the truth and nothing but the truth when you are telling everything but the truth. Gov. Cuomo’s latest bid to......

Cuomo needs to stop killing NYC’s economy

NYPost
Post Editorial Board New York lost 1 million jobs during the pandemic last year, more than half of them in the city. And that doesn’t include jobs that are being done out-of-state by remote workers who therefore spend nothing in the city. Yet the politicians keep ignoring these bitter facts,......

Focus on vaccines and race just a distraction from the real job

NYPost
Post Editorial Board “Clearly we do see a profound disparity that needs to be addressed aggressively and creatively,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said of stats that seem to show white New Yorkers getting vaccinated at a higher rate. Wrong again, sir. For starters, that’s based on partial data: 40 percent......

Biden brood already cashing in on Joe’s presidency: Goodwin

NYPost
Michael Goodwin They can’t quit the grift. No sooner had Joe Biden won the White House than his family went back to trying to make a buck off his name. The latest sordid example involves one of Joe’s younger brothers, Frank Biden, appearing in a Florida law firm’s ad —......

Expect Gov. Cuomo to take revenge on AG Letitia James for uncovering truth about nursing-home deaths

NYPost
Bob McManus Gov. Cuomo probably couldn’t get away with yanking Attorney General Letitia James’ fingernails in public — even New York’s crazy politics has limits — but no doubt he’d like to try. The governor is a frightfully vengeful fellow. Political big shot or anonymous government toiler, it doesn’t matter—......

Andrew Cuomo’s appalling nursing-home defense

NYPost
Post Editorial Board “It’s not about pointing fingers or blame. This became a political football,” Gov. Cuomo said Friday in response to questions about Attorney General Tish James’ finding that the state vastly underreported COVID-19 deaths of nursing-home residents. “Who cares,” he asked, if they died in a home or......
