Andrew Cuomo Deploys Military to Seize Private Property

Whatever the problem, the solution is authoritarian statism. That’s why a big problem like the Wuhan coronavirus is making a big media hero out of the quintessential authoritarian statist Andrew Cuomo, whose tyrannical inclinations have been conspicuous for years (see for example here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here). Sarah Corriher is rightly alarmed by his order to have the military seize private property in the name of the virus:

Democrats’ hostility to property rights is far scarier than COVID-19.

Andrew Cuomo Takes Divisive Pettiness to New Extreme

How divisive, petty, juvenile, and tyrannical is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo? This offers an idea. He has blocked federal judges from officiating at weddings on the grounds that they might be Trump nominees.

Cuomo just vetoed a bill that would have allowed all federal judges to officiate at weddings in New York — saying he can’t stomach the idea that even some of the jurists might be President Trump appointees.

“I cannot in good conscience support legislation that would authorize such actions by federal judges who are appointed by this federal administration,” Cuomo said in a statement Friday as he shot down the bill — which was passed overwhelmingly by the Democratic-controlled state legislature.

“In good conscience.” Cuomo does not know the meaning of the term.

“President Trump does not embody who we are as New Yorkers,’’ the Democratic governor said.

God help New York if Cuomo does.

Hold on for a blast of hypocrisy that might knock you to the floor:

“The cornerstones that built our great state are diversity, tolerance, and inclusion. Based on these reasons, I must veto this bill.”

By intolerantly excluding those who might have been appointed by the other party, Cuomo crushes political diversity, as New York degenerates into a single-party system like they have in Chicago and California.

Imagine anyone who is not a leftist working together with Cuomo toward shared objectives. His rigid intolerance of opposition is increasingly typical of the Democrat Party, as the impeachment farce has emphasized.

Andrew Cuomo Sides with Foreign Invaders, Obstructs US Law

It once would have been unthinkable that politicians at the city and state level would side with foreign invaders against the United States. Now, it is commonplace. When New York’s odious Governor Andrew Cuomo ostentatiously obstructs the enforcement of federal immigration law, he is far from alone in his seditious posturing:

Cuomo has joined with a growing number of elected officials across the country in opposing the Trump administration’s reported plan to begin ICE raids early Sunday targeting illegal alien families. …

Mayor Bill de Blasio and the mayors of Chicago, Washington, DC and Los Angeles also condemned the threat and promised aide to affected families.

You can see where the Japanese screwed up when they attacked Pearl Harbor. If only they had dragged little kids along on the raid, the media would have bleated that antiaircraft guns were being used against families, and liberal politicians would have refused to participate in the national defense.

Both Cuomo and de Blasio have offered taxpayer-funded resources to defend illegal immigrants from American law. The Left’s treasonous proclivities have never been on more brazen display.

The behavior of these pernicious demagogues demonstrates one of the many reasons that immigration law must be enforced. Lack of respect for the law causes society to decay. When Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf tipped off criminal illegal aliens regarding ICE raids, she should have been arrested. Because she was not, the situation continues to deteriorate.

Andrew Cuomo’s Green Great Leap Forward

Mao Zedong’s demented Great Leap Forward, intended to complete the transition from socialism to communism, killed at least 45 million Chinese. Andrew Cuomo’s Green Great Leap Forward is comparably ambitious and also promises to wreak devastation. The New York Governor has reached an agreement with his fellow Democrats in the legislature to radically reduce harmless emissions that are an unavoidable byproduct of modern civilization.

The legislation calls for reducing emissions by 40% from 1990 levels by 2030 and 85% by 2050. The remaining 15% of emissions would be offset, making the state carbon neutral. The bill would also require that all electricity generation come from carbon-free sources by 2040.

This could only be economically feasible with heavy reliance on nuclear power. Meanwhile, Cuomo is closing Indian Point, a nuclear plant that has provided 25% of the electricity for New York City.

The odds of this economic malice resulting in a measurable difference in global temperature stand at exactly zero. No sane person could tell you differently with a straight face. Yet people will submit to this radical and utterly unnecessary reduction in their standard of living because of the global warming hoax.

Cultural Marxism also comes into play:

In a state where many communities of color struggle with pollution from traffic, power plants and garbage disposal, the environmental justice components of the legislation resonated with lawmakers.

Democrats call this sort of race-baiting rhetoric “climate justice.”

The level of tyranny that will be imposed in the name of absurd liberal dogma is extreme. The bill calls for the creation of a powerful Climate Action Council, which will “recommend emissions performance standards for the transportation, building and industrial sectors.” In effect, this means these sectors of the economy will be controlled by hostile Stalinesque bureaucrats.

Business interests had urged Cuomo and Democratic lawmakers to slow down, saying the legislation threatened 40,000 manufacturing jobs in the state.

That’s only the beginning. Envirofascist moonbattery will reduce New York to an economic wasteland.

No Excommunication for Demonic Andrew Cuomo

The extreme abortion bill that moonbats celebrated by lighting up the Empire State Building in pink is so outrageous that Catholics have demanded excommunication for Andrew Cuomo, who backed the sick bill aggressively. That would help restore the moral credibility of the Catholic Church, which has been reeling lately due to the widespread infiltration of the priesthood by homosexual child molesters and the Pope’s preference for leftist politics over spiritual matters.

Excommunication would be appropriate due the disturbing radicalism of the legislation. Breitbart lists eight chilling facts about the new law, including these:

• The “fundamental” right to abortion is enshrined in the New York Constitution.
• The law allows non-physicians to perform abortions.
• The law allows abortion through the third trimester, including up to birth.
• The law removes protections for babies who survive an abortion procedure.
• The law states that an unborn child cannot be a victim of homicide if he dies while in the womb following an attack on the mother.

Some people are legally not people, according to liberals. Once that Rubicon has been crossed, you never know when they will decide that you don’t legally count as a person either.

At least, since the law enshrines the “fundamental” right to kill inconvenient babies even if Roe v Wade is overturned, progressives will stop screeching that another conservative on the Supreme Court will put an end to their most unholy sacrament. Just kidding. Nothing will stop them from lying that abortion is just one justice away from a national ban.

Cuomo backed this bill so belligerently that he threatened to block the budget if it didn’t pass. Yet the fiend is still regarded as a Catholic in good standing. New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan has announced that “excommunication should not be used as a weapon.”

New York State already has the highest abortion rate in the USA. Liberals must want it higher still.

Andrew Cuomo Pushes Radical Abortion Bill

The unhinged dictator of the People’s Republic of New York has already made it explicitly clear that those who do not approve of aborting babies are not welcome in his state. A new bill will help Andrew Cuomo to impose this decree:

The so-called Reproductive Health Act would erase basically every regulation and restriction on abortion in the state, and declare the killing of unborn babies a “fundamental right.”

Kathleen Gallagher, director of pro-life activities for the New York State Catholic Conference, told the Catholic News Service that the pro-abortion bill “foresees a time in New York where it’s a crime to be pro-life.”

New York State Right to Life predicted that the bill will lead to the suppression of pro-lifers’ freedom of speech and conscience. Doctors and nurses who refuse to help abort unborn babies could lose their jobs, and pro-life advocates could be persecuted for just speaking out for life.

The bill will allow a baby to be killed at any time for essentially any reason right up to birth — and even after, in the case of botched abortions. It will allow killing unborn babies against the will of the mother.

New York has deteriorated to the point that there is no effective resistance to the farthest left-wing fringes. The demonic Cuomo says he will hold up the budget until the bill passes. It will pass.

Andrew Cuomo Defends Enabling Corruption

Now that authoritarian New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared independence from the federal government, he can continue consolidating power in his fascistic fiefdom:

Despite the recent jailhouse parade of former aides, Gov. Andrew Cuomo insisted Thursday he was right in stripping the state comptroller of an oversight power that watchdogs say could have put the brakes on corruption in his administration.

He pulled pre-audit authority from Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, preventing him from preventing corruption by previewing contracts before they are signed. Cuomo justified this by barking that only investigations can find fraud, not audits. This is true enough in the present case, but only because the audits would have prevented the fraud before it could occur.

Affected programs at the State University of New York and its nonprofit subsidiaries…

…turned into a magnet for corruption that led to the conviction of two top former Cuomo aides — Joseph Percoco and Alain Kaloyeros — in the biggest bid-rigging scandal in state history.

John Kaehny is executive director of the government watchdog group Reinvent Albany. He notes that if allowed to do his job, the Comptroller would have noticed that Cuomo aides were rigging bids.

“You want to prevent crime, not investigate crime,” Kaehny added. “The governor’s living in an upside-down world.”

That fits with Cuomo’s upside-down moonbat ideology.

Just like a real science, political science has unbreakable laws. One of them is, the more power statists acquire, the more corruption you can expect.

Andrew Cuomo: America Was “Never That Great”

Just when I thought my opinion of New York’s fascistic moonbat governor could not possibly sink any lower, Andrew Cuomo vomits contempt onto the USA:

“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” Cuomo said during a speech in New York.

He proceeded to support his statement by pandering to feminists with tedious moonbattery.

The blessing of American citizenship is wasted on leftist termites incapable of appreciating how lucky they are to have been born in this country.

It would be nice to think that this video will at least spare us from Cuomo’s alarming presidential aspirations, despite his awkward attempt to walk back his clear statement:

However, Barack Obama was elected POTUS on a shtick that prominently featured sneering contempt for America. At the very least, this wins the affection of the media.

Could Andrew Cuomo Kill the NRA?

An organization that exists for the sole purpose of defending from tyrannical politicians a right specifically enumerated in the Constitution is bound to provoke the ire of tyrannical politicians. But not even the most ham-fisted authoritarians can abolish the NRA directly, because its existence is defended in turn by that same Constitution. That’s why New York’s fascistic governor Andrew Cuomo has used indirect methods to kill the NRA:

The National Rifle Association says that it’s in “deep financial trouble” — so deep in fact that it may be “unable to exist.”

The group says it is under such financial distress because New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has convinced a number of financial service providers, banks, and insurance providers against doing business with the gun-advocacy group. As a result, the NRA claims that it will be forced to end its magazine publishing and television services, and will be forced to curtail rallies and potentially shutter some of its offices.

This is classic fascism. Under communism, nothing exists that is not part of the government. Under fascism, there are ostensibly independent agencies like banks and insurance companies. But Big Government is so all-powerful and all-pervasive that they can easily be leaned on to do what they are told — not that a great deal of leaning is necessary in this era of ultra-left corporate “virtue” signaling.

Watch Cuomo gloat about the effectiveness of his thug tactics in this appalling ad:

At least the fascist bullies of the 1930s had the decency not to pretend that their victims were the bullies.

Andrew Cuomo Says He Will Sue if Roe v. Wade Is Overturned

Shrieking “That’s racist” isn’t the only instinctive reaction that characterizes progressives. When faced with the possibility of a Supreme Court decision not to his liking, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reflexively screams, “I’ll sue”:

Cuomo says he’ll sue if the Supreme Court rolls back Roe v. Wade.

Sue whom? In what court?

“We never passed the New York State law because we relied on Roe v. Wade and everyone assumed it would always be there,” Gov. Cuomo said.

In the unlikely event that Roe v. Wade is overturned, it would only be an admission that there is nothing in the Constitution about abortion. That would leave it up to states to pass laws, the way the Founders intended. What are the odds that a state liberal enough to elect Andrew Cuomo to be Governor would pass laws restricting abortions? If anything, abortion would become even more accessible.

Overturning Roe v. Wade is not about abortion. It is about whether the USA is a constitutional republic or an oligarchy ruled by a black-robed junta. If the Supreme Court can legislate by pretending the Constitution says whatever they want it to say, then it is an oligarchy.

Andrew Cuomo Says He Is an Illegal Alien

If they will tell a lie this brazen, what won’t they lie about? New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, the son of earlier New York Governor Mario Cuomo, was born and raised in America with a silver spoon in his mouth. Watch in amazement as he shouts that he is “undocumented” — which is liberalese for an illegal alien:

As for “Wop” being an acronym for “without papers,” that too is untrue.

Comparing the Italian immigrants of 100 years ago with the current tsunami of Third World welfare colonists is an insult to Cuomo’s proud heritage. Italians arrived from a compatible culture, hit the ground running, and quickly assimilated. The welfare state, multiculturalism, and contempt for immigration law have created a very different situation with the largely unassimilable immigrants flooding in to transform (or to put it less mildly, destroy) our country today.

The implication of Cuomo’s absurd proclamation is that no illegal immigrant should be deported, that is, that America should have no borders, no sovereignty, no right to determine how many millions or theoretically billions flood in for the welfare benefits. This irresponsible jackass — who just recently granted felons on parole the right to vote by unilateral decree — is Governor of the third most populous state. The reason he has been barking so shrilly lately is that he faces an opponent who is even worse.

Andrew Cuomo Unilaterally Letting Felons Vote

If it’s that easy to help your party to votes, you have to wonder why New York Governor Andrew Cuomo didn’t do it long ago. He just issued an executive order letting felons vote while on parole:

Republicans immediately slammed the move as bad public policy and potentially illegal, since Cuomo chose to circumvent the Legislature.

To hell with the legislature. Not letting felons vote is racist!

Cuomo said the voting prohibition disproportionately impacts minorities, noting that nearly three-fourths of those currently on parole in New York are black or Latino.

That’s because minorities are vastly more likely to commit crimes. Uncoincidentally, they are also vastly more likely to vote for Democrats. Criminals and the Democrat Party share a common mission: to use force to expropriate wealth from those who create it.

Cuomo’s move could net up to 35,000 votes for the Dems. This was a good move, providing he doesn’t mind positioning himself as a dictator ruling on behalf of sociopaths — and that never bothered him before.

Andrew Cuomo Capitalizes on Charlottesville by Pushing New Legislation

They are exploiting Charlottesville not only to tear down war memorials. Beneath the symbolism, we find the scary stuff:

In the wake of the deadly hate march in Charlottesville, Va., Gov. Cuomo said Tuesday he will introduce legislation designed to prevent a similar situation in New York.

By “hate march” they of course mean a protest against Robert E. Lee being banished to the Memory Hole. It was “deadly” because a maniac ran someone over with a car after Antifa types descended on the rally looking for a fight.

The bill being drafted would add to the state hate crimes law the new offenses of rioting and inciting to riot when the actions target protected classes.

Sure, you have a right to free speech — unless that speech targets protected classes.

So much for equality before the law. We can’t all be as special as the protected classes.

Hilariously, this sort of tyranny is justified in the name of fighting “fascists.”

Cuomo is the guy who proclaimed that no one who disagrees with his radical stances on gun rights, abortion, and the LGBT agenda is welcome in his state. He will probably run for president in 2020.

Conspicuously Intolerant Andrew Cuomo Has No Tolerance for Intolerance

Andrew Cuomo says he will not cooperate with sensible if poorly implemented temporary restrictions on people coming into the country from terrorist hot zones. Speaking as the Voice of New York, he proclaimed by way of explanation that the state has “no tolerance for intolerance.” This has the Blaze rolling on the floor:

That statement is curious because, back in January 2014, Cuomo made a very pronounced statement on the “tolerance” of New York when he said, “Extreme conservatives have no place in New York” after some Republicans in the state voted against gun control legislation called the SAFE Act.

“Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are?,” Cuomo wondered at the time. “Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.”

The rigidly intolerant tolerance personified by Cuomo may be a form of schizophrenia.
