New York is known for its Yankees and the Giants. But the fight between NY Governor Cuomo and NY Mayor de Blasio is more like watching the Pansies go at the Sissies.
Both these men are killers. Further, both are leftists, whose policies put New Yorkers in harms way. Cuomo killed over 5,000 old people in nursing homes, and countless others from suicide.
De Blasio ruined lives through business closures, job losses, and a host of other acts targeted merely to get President Trump.
Now these two worthless skanks are going at each other.
In an effort to deflect from his own incompetence, Cuomo exposed de Blasio for refusing assistance from the state’s National Guard.
And his failure to thwart widespread looting as protests and riots rage over the death of George Floyd.
In his daily press briefing, Cuomo issued stinging criticism of de Blasio and the New York Police Department. In fact, Cuomo called Monday evening’s failed attempt to quell violent unrest “inexcusable.”
“The NYPD and New York City mayor did not do their job last night,” Cuomo said. “I think the mayor underestimates the scope of the problem and the duration of the problem. What happened in NYC was inexcusable.”

Recently, the governor explained that he offered cities around the state, including the Big Apple, help from the National Guard. However, de Blasio rejected the offer to stop looters.
“My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the National Guard as the governor in an emergency and basically you would have to take over the mayor’s job,” Cuomo then explained. “I don’t think we’re at the point,” he said, before adding the move would yield a “chaotic situation” that “wouldn’t make any sense.”
The New York City Police Department arrested more than 700 protesters overnight. Looters damaged the flagship Macy’s department store in midtown Manhattan. Then, they emptied a Nike store and broke storefront windows near Rockefeller Center.

But now, the two might want to squash their differences and refocus their efforts. Because they’re facing a bigger giant than either one can handle.
Faith Leaders Unite
It’s rarely a good idea to go against a man of the cloth. And New York’s not so dynamic duo is now facing a lawsuit from five religious leaders.
According to Fox News,
Two Catholic priests — Steven Soos and Nicholas Stamos — and a trio of Orthodox Jewish congregants — Elchanan Perr, Daniel Schonborn, and Mayer Mayerfeld — in Brooklyn, represented by the Thomas More Society, filed the suit in the Northern District of New York after mass protests and looting occurred in the Big Apple following George Floyd’s death.
“Why is a large worship gathering deemed more dangerous than a mass protest, full of shouting, arm-waving people in close proximity to one another?” Christopher Ferrara, Thomas More Society special counsel, said in a statement to Fox News.
“These orders, both the emergency stay-home and reopening plan declarations, clearly discriminate against houses of worship,” Ferrara added. “They are illegally content-based, elaborate, arbitrary and pseudo-scientific.”
Among many violations cited, the group points out de Blasio ignoring social distancing and the 10-person limit when he didn’t wear a face mask on June 4 while attending and addressing a mass political gathering at New York City’s Cadman Plaza. Days later, in Williamsburg, Hasidic Jewish children were kicked out of a park by a police officer enforcing Cuomo and de Blasio’s 10-person limit on “non-essential gatherings.”
In April, de Blasio threatened the Jewish community — which had a string of attacks this past winter — with arrests and prosecutions for “illegal” mass religious gatherings after police in Williamsburg broke up the funeral of Rabbi Chaim Mertz.
Instead of admitting the error of his ways, De Blasio doubled down.
“My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this simple: the time for warnings has passed,” de Blasio wrote in a tweet. “I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups. This is about stopping this disease and saving lives. Period.”
He was forced to apologize for targeting the Jewish community as a whole. But he doubled down on his remarks, calling it “tough love.”
Over and over the leftist hypocrisy is on display. Cuomo’s plan closed New York theaters until phase four. However, many already defied such orders and opened their doors. They’re allowing people to come in and take a load off. They can use the wi-fi, get a snack, prop their feet up, and just do a little mingling. Neither Cuomo nor De Blasio have shut them down.
“It is time to end New York’s experiment in absolute monarchy,” said Ferrara. “We are asking the court to put an end to these unconstitutional executive orders and grant a temporary restraining order against their prejudicial enforcement.”
Cuomo’s lame response is to allow churches to operate at 25% capacity. Clearly, that’s not enough. But their tyranny won’t last much longer. Soon, these New York nutcases will be schooled on constitutional rights.
