After declaring a state of emergency and establishing a containment zone in a wealthy New York City suburb, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) is taking further unprecedented action to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Three thousand miles away, Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom issued a sweeping executive order allowing the State of California to commandeer all hotels and medical facilities to treat those infected with COVID-19.

CNBC’s William Feuer reports:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a ban on gatherings of 500 or more people across the state as public officials try to contain a fast-moving coronavirus outbreak that has infected at least 328 people in New York.

Cuomo said the state was trying to limit the contagion by reducing “density,” or events where a large number of people gather in a close environment.

You are going to see the same trajectory that you saw in China, South Korea and Italy,” Cuomo said during a press briefing on Thursday. “So, we’re going to take very dramatic actions in that regard to reduce the number of people in a contagious environment.”

The rules take effect at 5 p.m. EDT on Friday, except for Broadway theaters in Manhattan, which will need to adhere by the new rules starting at 5 p.m. tonight, he said.

Schools are exempt from Cuomo’s order. Children that are ill are advised not to attend whether they have a suspected case of COVID-19 or not.

Commie Cuomo attended the same Saul Alinsky classes which Rahm Emanuel did. Just remember all of this in November 2020. One way or another the Democrat-Socialists must go!

Americans are awake and fed up with these Monkeys on Capital Hill. Those Monkeys in The Senate have been there way too long and have been stealing all of the best stuff for themselves. Look at Joe Blow Biden, that Monkey was in Congress for how long? Stealing famous speeches and calling them his own. Not to mention all of the other shit he’s stolen over the decades! There is a revolution afoot but it’s not one driven by the communist manifesto, it’s driven by The United States Constitution and it’s armed by The Bill Of Rights!

I often wish I could get the governor to stand beside me. He could bag my customers’ purchases in their dirty, nasty bags so that I wouldn’t have to touch bags that have never seen the inside of a washer and dryer.

It must be nice to be able to make rules and then stand back while others reap the “rewards”
