Looks like the people in NYC have had enough, and are fed up with these two idiots Andrew Cuomo, and Bill deBlasio who are without a doubt two of the worst elected leaders in this country. I kid you not folks the people in NYC are pissed, and are not taking it anymore, and I for one applaud them. This is not shocking, and hope more people in NYC follow with these people, and ban these two idiots from ever entering their establishments again. That is if they ever open up again in NYC.
A Pro-Trump artist puts up banner depicting Bill de Blasio with Lady Liberty’s severed head as he claims the mayor has ruined NYC and hates cops. All true… The banner was placed over the Staten Island Expressway depicting Bill de Blasio holding up Lady Liberty’s severed head, as he claims the New York City Mayor is turning the Big Apple into a ‘s***hole.’
Scott LoBaido who has been painting murals for 25 years created a mock-up that shows the 59 year old politician smirking while wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt. He explained about the image that appears as if blood is dripping from the statue’s neck: ‘It’s what he’s doing to New York, he’s severing the head of the greatest city on earth.’
But as people began returned to Liberty Island and its neighboring Ellis Island to commemorate its history as a site for processing immigration from 1892 to 1954, across the water LoBaido was making his own statement over exit 13B at rush hour.
It evokes memories of the Tyler Shields image that depicted comedian Kathy Griffin holding President Trump’s decapitated head in 2017. It sparked an FBI investigation, lost her jobs and garnered her death threats. LoBaido’s anger comes from the mayor’s response the recent Black Lives Matter protests.
The mayor has opted to take $1billion of the NYPD’s $6billion funding and inject it into housing projects and youth initiatives in a bid to combat crime. Trump has threatened to bring troops onto the streets, prompting some cities to look into taking legal action against it.
Like LoBaido, de Blasio too explored his creative side recently and helped volunteers paint Black Lives Matter murals, one of which President Trump denounced and said would denigrate the luxury 5th Avenue shopping area. De Blasio responded to Trump’s tweet: ‘Black people BUILT 5th Ave and so much of this nation. Your ‘luxury’ came from THEIR labor, for which they have never been justly compensated. We are honoring them. The fact that you see it as denigrating your street is the definition of racism.’
LoBaido told the New York Post on Tuesday that the authorities built NYC. ‘New York has turned into a s***hole because of this guy,’ LoBaido said about the Manhattan-born mayor. ‘He hates the true New Yorkers: police officers, firefighters… people who built this city.’
The Black Lives Matter murals have been vandalized a number of times and de Blasio’s critics have lashed out at him because the artwork outside Trump Tower has been touched up with paint faster than various pieces of graffiti around the city that shine a negative light on police.
LoBaido did his own road mural of thin blue line outside the 122nd Precinct on Monday in support of cops as the Black Lives Matter movement draws attention to police brutality against people of color.
Within it he etched ‘DIAAH’ which stands for ‘De Blasio is an a** hole.’
Mayor Bill has a lot of issues! ONE of those is his daughter who’s ugly as HELL!!!!!!!!!!!! Bill de Blasio’s daughter, Chiara was arrested at Manhattan’s protest, and from the looks of it she’s an Antifa member. This explains why he’s a DemocRAT, all these fools kids belong to the ugly kids club? … I love how more, and more these morons kids exposes why they hate.
This idiots Daughter instead of being a civilized person chose to get herself arrested like a moron rioting. Great way to raise your kid there Bill… You like her both belong in jail.
The arrest came about an hour before Hizzoner told protesters it was time to “go home.”
“We appreciate and respect all peaceful protests, but now it is time for people to go home,” de Blasio said at a press conference at 11:30 p.m. at the NYC Emergency Management headquarters in Downtown Brooklyn.
“If you went out peacefully to make a point about the need for change, you have been heard and change is coming in the city. I have no doubt about that. It’s time to go home so we can all move forward.”
“It is a small number of people. It is well organized, even though many of the people are associated with the anarchist movement,” de Blasio said in a City Hall press briefing of the outside opportunists he blamed for the now-nationwide demonstrations descending into chaos.
“Some come from outside of the cities. Some are from inside the city. Some are from the neighborhoods where the protests take place. Some are not,” he continued, without detailing where the interlopers were from.
His daughter — who graduated from Santa Clara University in 2016 with plans to pursue a career in social work — was given a desk appearance ticket.
The Coronavirus in New York is seen an increase in cases and now it had began hitting hospitals hard. I mean people were trying to party in NY like this wasn’t real just a few days ago so this doesn’t shock me. Young people in particular were not taking the warning seriously, and now look they’re going to be paying the price for it. This is why when it’s times like these, and we get these sort of issues we need strong leaders who are clear, and precise with information. Trump has been that, and he’s been fantastic! The only issue is in NY all you idiotic leftist who thought this was a joke from ORANGE MAN now look at what’s happening.
The state’s long-feared surge of coronavirus cases has begun, thrusting the medical system toward a crisis point, and in a startlingly quick ascent, officials reported Friday that the state was closing in on 8,000 positive tests, about half the cases in the country. The number was 10 times higher than what was reported earlier in the week.
The Bronx, doctors at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center say they have “only a few remaining ventilators for patients who need them to breathe.” In Brooklyn, doctors at Kings County Hospital Center say they are “so low on supplies that they are reusing masks for up to a week, slathering them with hand sanitizer between shifts.”
Some of the jump in New York’s cases can be traced to significantly increased testing, which the state began this week. But the escalation, and the response, could offer other states a glimpse of what might be in store if the virus continues to spread. Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday urged residents to stay indoors and ordered nonessential businesses to keep workers home.
State officials have projected that the number of coronavirus cases in New York will peak in early May. Both NY governor and Mayor have used wartime metaphors and analogies to paint a grim picture of what to expect. Officials have said the state would need to double its available hospital beds to 100,000 and could be short as many as 25,000 ventilators.
As it prepares for the worst-case projections, the state is asking retired health care workers to volunteer to help. The city is considering trying to turn the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in Manhattan into a makeshift hospital.
“The most striking part is the speed with which it has ramped up,” said Ben McVane, an emergency room doctor at Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens. “It went from a small trickle of patients to a deluge of patients in our departments.”
At Elmhurst, a 545-bed public hospital that serves a large population of immigrants living in the country without legal permission and low-income residents, coronavirus patients have begun to crowd out others. Protective gear is running low. Doctors are worried there will be a shortage of ventilators.
Outside the facility, at a tent housing a new mobile-testing site, a line snaked around the building Friday, a sign of the demand on testing and how much worse the influx could become. The deputy commissioner of the city’s Department of Health Demetre Daskalakis has now estimated that hundreds of thousands or even millions of city residents would be infected in the outbreak. Officials, however, have said that most people will have mild to moderate symptoms, or none at all.
Generally, about 20% of coronavirus patients require hospitalization, with about one-quarter of those needing to be put on a mechanical ventilator machine to help them breathe. Statewide, more than 1,200 people have been hospitalized with the virus, according to Cuomo’s office. About 170 patients were in intensive care units in city hospitals, according to the city.
But even those initial cases were straining the health care system, a worrying sign. “There’s no reference for this,” said Daniel Singer, who has been an emergency room doctor for 14 years and now works at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center. “It’s totally unprecedented.” Lincoln administrators met Friday to discuss its dwindling supply of ventilators, according to another employee. Dr. Mitchell Katz, head of the Health and Hospitals Corp., which runs New York City’s public hospitals, said there were 230 patients in the Elmhurst emergency room Thursday, about 50 more than any recent peak. Most were patients with the symptoms of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus, he said.
The system has received 100 more ventilators from its supplier and is expecting hundreds more, Katz said. At the same time, de Blasio has cast the equipment shortage in stark terms and has asked the federal government for help. “I don’t mean to be too dramatic here; it’s just a fact,” he said Friday in an interview with WNYC radio host Brian Lehrer. “It is a fact that a lot of people are going to die who don’t need to die if this doesn’t happen quickly.” As of Friday, 35 people with the coronavirus had died in New York state — the second-highest number in the nation behind Washington state, where the virus appeared to hit first.
In addition to converting the Javits Center, officials have considered turning a variety of other places into temporary medical facilities, including Madison Square Garden and the student dorms at New York University. A military hospital ship with 1,000 beds is coming, but it will not arrive until April. The state is planning to waive regulations in order to urge hospitals to increase capacity. In the short term, hospital workers say their biggest worry is a severe shortage of the medical gear that protects them from sick patients.
The state has three stockpiles of medical supplies, including millions of masks and gloves as well as more sophisticated equipment like ventilators. On Friday, the state health commissioner, Dr. Howard Zucker, said those supplies had been tapped to help backfill shortages at some hospitals. Hospitals have been trying to find more of the N95 masks, which are most effective at preventing the virus’s spread, as well as lighter surgical masks, goggles and gowns. But with suppliers running out across the world, hospital workers have improvised.
At Kings County Hospital Center and the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in Queens, administrators have given doctors one N95 mask to last all week, according to employees at the facilities. At Kings County, emergency room doctors wipe down the masks with hand sanitizer between shifts and put the masks in brown paper bags labeled with their names, a doctor there said.
The Health and Hospitals Corp., which runs Kings County, denied that workers were being told to reuse masks. A representative of Northwell Health, which includes Long Island Jewish, acknowledged that administrators were trying to preserve masks because the supply was limited.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said that N95 masks should be discarded after each interaction with an infected patient and should not be used for more than eight hours. At other hospitals across the city and beyond, workers have turned to social media to plead for masks.
In a hospital affiliated with Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, administrators stowed their masks in a locked room after a fistfight broke out among workers and visitors over access to the dwindling stockpile. Several hospitals have sent emails warning workers that they can be fired for the “unauthorized use” of masks.
Medical workers exposed to the coronavirus had been self-quarantining, but this week state and city health officials issued new guidance recommending that hospital workers stay on the job until they show symptoms of the virus. People with symptoms of the virus spread it most easily, but research has also indicated that asymptomatic transmission is possible.
“I’m worried because if we get it, everybody is going to get it,” said Aretha Morgan, a pediatric emergency room nurse at Columbia University Medical Center in Manhattan. “I might actually be exposing children in the ER.”
The head of New York City’s public hospitals, said he understood fears about having to keep working after being exposed. He defended the policy by saying the virus was already widespread, so workers exposed in a hospital setting were not any more exposed than anybody on the subway. He also said that while more supplies were needed, workers at public hospitals had enough protective gear to last through the end of the month.
The city’s other efforts included reserving 1,500 hotel rooms to potentially use for people with mild coronavirus symptoms or other illnesses, said Deanne Criswell, the city’s commissioner of emergency management. Some medical students have also volunteered to help respond to the crisis. For now, students are working in support roles, such as taking notes and managing materials, said David Muller, dean for medical education at the Icahn School of Medicine at the Mount Sinai Health System.
But if the number of cases continues to rise, it is possible that graduating students could start seeing patients — though not necessarily ones with the virus — even before their residencies are scheduled to begin in July. “It could be not even a week or two before we have to sweep away some of those restrictions,” Muller said.
