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.

Don’t Let Andrew Cuomo Tell You How Many Bullets You Need

Remember when anti–gun rights demagogue Andrew Cuomo disingenuously screamed that “No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer”? Here’s a rebuttal:

Awoken in the middle of the night by two home intruders, a 61-year-old Terrell [Texas] woman reached for her gun and shot one of the burglars.

However, when the woman’s gun ran out of bullets, she said the uninjured burglar attacked her.

“He must of heard me clicking it because that’s when he came back and beat me up really bad,” said the woman, who asked CBS11 not to use her name out of fear for her safety.

The woman said she suffered a concussion and her face was covered with cuts and bruises.

Knowing one of the suspects was shot and likely needed medical attention, investigators were able to quickly track the two suspects down at the Texas Regional Medical Center at Sunnyvale.

Saul Guzman, 21, was found inside the hospital being treated for a non-life threatening gun-shot wound to the stomach.

Investigators found the second suspect, Pedro Guzman, 21, sitting in his car across the street from the hospital at a gas station.

The culprits are believed to be responsible for other local robberies.

The victim learned from the experience. She is planning to buy another gun.

Andrew Cuomo Restricts Travel to North Carolina Because It Won’t Let Male Perverts Use the Ladies’ Room

Don’t laugh at people who think Onion stories are for real. They may as well be, if this is:

N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order Monday banning state employees from using taxpayer funds to travel to North Carolina on nonessential work.

The Democratic governor signed E.O. 155 “to ban any such publicly funded or publicly sponsored travel to such location, unless such travel is necessary for the enforcement of New York State law, to meet prior contractual obligations, or for the protection of public health, welfare, and safety.”

The move is the latest political response to Republican Gov. Pat McCrory’s Friday approval of legislation by the N.C. state assembly that maintains, in instances of gender-specific facilities, individuals must use that which is identified on his or her birth certificate.

It isn’t enough that women in New York aren’t safe from perverts in restrooms or locker rooms. The whole country must plunge headlong into depraved, degenerate moonbattery. Governor Cuomo demands it.

Of course the reason this is relevant now is that the Axis powers are a politically acceptable stand-in for the people who really have taken our country away from us. The fascistic governor of New York grasps the metaphor and has responded exactly as you would expect:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered that an ad campaign he didn’t like be removed from the New York City subway system, The Associated Press reports.

Andrew Cuomo Discards Choice

If you think the socialist overlord of the People’s Republic of New York is hard on gun owners, you should see the treatment unborn babies get. Christians who take their faith seriously don’t fare well under his rule either:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo seeks to impose a radical new abortion regime on the state, one that goes far beyond the euphemistic byword “choice.” The bill would in fact limit many choices, for instance the choice of Catholic hospitals and other institutions with moral objections to decline to allow abortions to be performed in their facilities. It would limit the choices of organizations that counsel pregnant women if their counseling were held to be insufficiently enthusiastic about abortion. It would limit the choices of organizations that seek to help women in crisis without involving themselves in the politics of abortion.

But Cuomo’s “Reproductive Health Act” proves that sometimes even liberals can favor deregulation.

It would among other things allow persons other than physicians to perform abortions. That is an innovation borrowed from Jerry Brown’s California, where midwives and nurses are permitted to perform abortions. The State of New York will not permit a burly man to lift a box without a state permit to operate a moving company, but gynecological surgery apparently is to be considered a matter for immediate regulatory relief.

That’s because our liberal rulers don’t care whether boxes get lifted. They do care that abortions be performed — although they already are in great number.

Two in five pregnancies end in abortion in New York City; the rate for black women is 60 percent. The statewide figures are lower, but they are high enough. There are about 250 abortion clinics in the state, and 93 percent of the state’s women live in a county that is home to an abortion facility, according to the Guttmacher Institute. Nationally, abortion kills the equivalent of the combined populations of Atlanta and Cleveland every year. All that with no help from Governor Cuomo.

You couldn’t increase abortion access for New Yorkers without putting a baby butchery on every street corner. What then is the point?

The issue is political domination. The abortion party does not brook resistance, and it steadfastly seeks to ensure that everybody has a hand in its grisly business: taxpayers, employers, priests. All must be implicated. If a religious hospital declines to provide abortions, then it must be forced to do so. If a counseling center treats adoption as preferable to abortion, it will either change its mind or have its mind changed for it by the gentle persuasion of the State of New York.

Like the abortion provisions in the Patient Protection Act [a.k.a. ObamaCare], Governor Cuomo’s proposal is a gross assault on individual liberties.

As its avatars Cuomo and Obama have been making increasingly clear, at bottom leftism is tyranny for the sake of tyranny; evil for the sake of evil.

Not just tyrannical. Satanic.

Andrew Cuomo: Another Socialist for Gun Control

Among the most aggressive authoritarians to exploit Sandy Hook is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo:

A deal to give New York one of the toughest gun control laws in the nation is being negotiated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who, sources said Tuesday, is hoping to announce the plan Wednesday during his State of the State speech in Albany.

Cuomo hopes to jump-start the 2013 legislative session with a big deal that could dramatically alter gun control laws across the state.

Prepare for gun violence in NYC to explode the way repressive gun laws have caused it to do in Chicago. But now for the truly scary part:

It would be quite a coup for Cuomo, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, to show progress on gun control while Washington dithers.

Cuomo’s previous national claim to fame was helping lay the groundwork for the 2008 financial crisis when he was HUD Secretary by forcing banks to make race-based loans that everyone knew would not be paid back. He called this what it was — federally imposed “Affirmative Action” for loans:

Andrew Cuomo is a socialist. It is no coincidence that those most adamantly opposed to the economic freedom that produces prosperity are also those most eager to deny us the right to defend ourselves from tyrannical government.

Unlike some of their supporters, Democrat pols do not mean well. They are evil.

Cuomo: NYC Could Have Tolls on Any Corner

Outlandish levels of taxation have been driving wealth-producers out of New York. The recent federal tax reform will increase the pain by subsidizing high state and local taxes with deductions less generously. Now might be a good time to back off and let people keep more of their money. Yet the insatiably greedy socialists running the Empire State have only just begun to loot:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who is mulling a congestion pricing plan in Manhattan, said Monday the state is capable of placing tolls anywhere in the Big Apple.

“We have the ability with technology to put tolling anywhere in the city — it’s not just the bridges, it’s just a gantry with a license plate reader that reads an EZ pass or a license plate,” he explained at an unrelated press conference.

That means tolls can be imposed “on any corner, any block.”

First they will hit the most crowded parts of the city, under the pretext of relieving congestion.

Advocates of congestion pricing have said it could raise $1.5 billion a year.

Even leftist Mayor Bill de Blasio is opposed. However,

De Blasio favors a “millionaires tax” to fund the MTA.

Why does the Metropolitan Transportation Authority need so much money? Maybe because it has been spending $3.5 billion per mile on subway extensions. The money has to come from somewhere before bureaucrats can flagrantly waste it.

Authoritarian Moonbattery in Action: Cuomo’s Closing of Indian Point

Congrats to New York’s overtly malevolent Governor Andrew Cuomo. He has a feather in his cap, having coerced the Indian Point nuclear plant to close down by 2021, and even to cough up $15 million for “green projects.” This is sure to impress his fellow progressives as he positions himself to run for POTUS in 2020.

Liberals shout that the planet is doomed because of carbon emissions; Indian Point, which provides one-quarter of the energy for New York City and neighboring Westchester County, produces no CO2. However, moonbats don’t like nuclear power any better than coal, for murky ideological reasons. They only approve of inefficient “green” energy, possibly so called because it requires massive amounts of money to produce enough juice to make anything go.

Replacing the energy lost when Indian Point closes will not be easy, in light of Cuomo’s insane 50% renewable energy mandate. The difference has to be made up from wind, solar, and Canadian hydroelectricity imported from far away at great expense. As the Wall Street Journal notes,

The consulting firm Energy Watch estimates that Indian Point’s closure will increase electricity rates by 1 to 1.5 cents per kilowatt hour. New York already has among the highest electric rates in the country.

That isn’t the only cost Cuomo has imposed on New Yorkers:

[Indian Point] also employs about 1,000 full-time workers and pays $30 million a year to local governments. Towns and school districts may have to raise property taxes to compensate.

It should be noted that property taxes in New York are already so outlandishly high that many people including me have left the state at least in part because of them.

In addition,

Cuomo is blocking fracking and a pipeline to deliver cheap natural gas to upstate New York.

The state’s future under Cuomo’s rule is looking not only expensive but potentially cold and dark.

To top it off, despite his sanctimonious green posturing, Cuomo violated environmental law to shut down Indian Point:

Cuomo never conducted a full environmental review as required by the State Environmental Quality Review Act prior to pulling the plug. … Cuomo short-circuited the review and failed to document the economic and environmental impact of closing the plant as well as the means of mitigating the damage.

If you like high-handed authoritarianism in the service of irresponsible moonbattery so much that you can’t wait for Cuomo to run for President in 2020, you might consider becoming one of the vanishing few Americans who move to rather than out of New York.

Cuomo Dictates That Health Insurance Must Pay for Grotesque Sexual Mutilation

It can’t be easy for insurance companies to avoid bankruptcy while trying to do business in a dictatorship of the depraved:

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has told New York health insurance companies they must cover sex-change operations and other treatments considered to be “medically necessary” to attempt to change a man or woman’s sex.

The New York Times reports that Cuomo sent a letter to insurance companies indicating that the coverage for such treatments and surgeries stems from state law’s requirement that health insurers provide coverage for psychological disorders.

Cuomo has a reputation for fascistic heavy-handedness. But New York is not alone:

According to the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund, New York is now the ninth state to require insurance coverage for sex-change treatments and surgery.

No doubt this will soon apply at a national level, forcing us all to pay more for insurance so that lunatics can have their private parts amputated.

Back before liberalism drove our society insane, it was not considered advisable to treat psychological disorders by chemically and surgically disfiguring the insane in support of their morbid delusions.

Cuomo Sics Bureaucracy on James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas

Even as Dinesh D’Souza is called back to New York to surrender himself to authorities for alleged campaign finance violations that are regarded as misdemeanors when committed by Democrats, the state’s terrifyingly fascistic governor is lowering the bureaucratic boom on Project Veritas, which has earned liberal enmity by exposing the moral rot that characterizes the Left:

Conservative activist James O’Keefe is accusing New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration of targeting his group with document requests and a subpoena, claiming the Democratic governor’s recent comments critical of conservatives “aren’t simply words.”

O’Keefe, whose Project Veritas is behind a series of hidden-camera investigations against left-leaning groups and causes, made the claims on the heels of the controversy over a recent Cuomo interview. In it, Cuomo blasted “extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay” and said they “have no place” in New York. …

O’Keefe claimed that Cuomo’s government is acting on those words, revealing that the Department of Labor has hit his office in Westchester County, N.Y., with demands for financial documents for months. …

“Governor Cuomo’s shocking words this past week aren’t simply words,” O’Keefe said in a statement. “Governor Cuomo and the New York Department of Labor are on a witch hunt, demanding all documents and financials since our founding. … His goal, of course, is to harass us and limit our effectiveness by tying us up in court. Just like President Obama used the IRS to target and suppress conservatives, Governor Cuomo is using his Department of Labor to do the same exact thing.”

The bigger government becomes, the easier it is for goons like Cuomo to crush anyone they regard as opposition with the sheer weight of the bureaucracy. O’Keefe will be made to pay for the damage he inflicted on Obama’s alma mater ACORN by exposing its eagerness to help him set up brothels staffed by illegal alien children.

De Blasio Doubles Down on Cuomo’s Intolerance of Dissenters

Andrew Cuomo isn’t the only one demanding that those who hold conventional American views on life, liberty, and morality get out of New York. The Big Apple’s new communist mayor seconds the motion:

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio emphatically backed New Governor Andrew Cuomo’s controversial remarks that “extreme” conservatives — which he defined as being pro-life, second amendment advocates, or supporters of traditional marriage — “have no place in the state of New York.”

“I stand by that 100 percent,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.

The leftist radical denounced traditional viewpoints as “extremist.”

De Blasio generously conceded that even non-leftists have a right to free speech…

But exercising that free speech could put you on the wrong side of New York “values,” de Blasio maintained. He concluded that Cuomo “was absolutely right to say what he said.”

Dissent is still tolerated. Just not dissenters.

A reporter asked if he felt any need to reach out to New Yorkers who don’t share his ideology. De Blasio’s answer was adamant:

“The first point is, we represent our people and Governor Cuomo is right and I believe I’m on firm ground in saying our people, the people in New York State and the people of New York City reject extremists views against a women’s right to choose and in favor of the proliferation of guns in our society. And I stand by that 100 percent.”

Those who take into consideration an inconvenient baby’s right to choose or who are unwilling to relinquish their constitutional rights can expect no quarter in the liberal utopia that is unfolding before us like a giant sinkhole.

Cuomo: Non-Leftists Have No Place in New York

Few firearms do not meet the definition of an assault weapon from the point of view of Andrew “You Don’t Need Ten Bullets to Kill a Deer” Cuomo, who exploited Sandy Hook to ram through probably the most draconian restrictions on Second Amendment liberties of any state in the union.

To restate his announcement, Cuomo does not want you in his state if you believe in the sanctity of life, the Second Amendment, or the sanctity of marriage — or to summarize, if you are not a left-wing extremist.

The radicalized Democrat Party does not even pretend to represent all Americans. It represents the Hard Left. The rest of us will be marginalized until the ruling class figures out how to get rid of us altogether, since normal Americans with normal American values could have no place in the degenerate statist dystopia they envision.

New York May Use Unemployment Insurance to Subsidize Strikes

In New York, leftism and corruption reach their apotheosis and blend together so it hard to say where one leaves off and the other begins. For example, leftist politicians and unions, working in sync as usual, are on the verge of usurping unemployment insurance and using it to subsidize strikes, rather than as emergency assistance to those who are jobless through no fault of their own.

Even in New York, strikers have to be out of work at least 8 weeks before they can receive unemployment benefits…

But on May 1, New York’s state Senate voted to let strikers get benefits one week after walking off the job—essentially putting them on equal footing with those who are laid off.

May 1, the communist holiday. Some coincidence.

If Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs this bill, he’ll effectively be using New York’s unemployment-insurance program to subsidize union strikes, upending the balance of power between workers and management.

That would force employers to pay people who refuse to work. Yet again we see that leftism is where tyranny and insanity intersect.

Subsidizing strikes will of course produce more strikes, adding to the dysfunctional business-hostile climate that has the productive class bailing out of New York.

The subsidy, like all pernicious things inflicted by Big Government, would grow:

New York is already increasing unemployment benefits, scrapping its $450-a-week cap in favor of a formula set to rise each year until 2026, when recipients will get up to 50% of the state’s average weekly wage, which is currently about $1,401.

Staying in business while paying people to march around with picket signs instead of working won’t be easy.

This would save Big Unions a fortune. That’s where the corruption comes in.

Many unions provide members with strike benefits to make up for lost wages… U.S. labor unions have paid out more than $149 million in strike benefits in just the past three years, federal records show.

Letting strikers collect unemployment benefits would relieve unions of much of those costs, freeing money up for other purposes—such as campaign contributions.

It is still possible for employers to escape from New York. But an idea this bad can’t escape the attention of Bernie Sanders for long. Once he demands this be imposed at the national level, the other Democrat candidates will launch into their habitual me too chorus.

Radical Abortion Push in New Mexico

It isn’t just Andrew Cuomo’s New York and Ralph Northam’s Virginia. Democrats have also been pushing the limits on pro-abortion fanaticism in Michelle Lujan Grisham’s New Mexico — despite Lujan Grisham blasphemously claiming to be Catholic.

Like Cuomo and Northam, she backs radical legislation:

The legislation, which contradicts the teachings of the Catholic Church, would legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth. A state Senate committee just approved the bill, and the state House has already passed it.

Lujan Grisham denounces those who oppose killing viable babies right up to the moment of birth:

“Opponents have expressed fear that, somehow, this legislation would facilitate murder,” said Lujan-Grisham. “Elected officials have no business making a woman’s choices for her. Neither do faraway federal judges who have, in some cases, made a career out of antagonizing marginalized groups, not the least of all women.”

Any horror can be excused if it is inflicted on behalf of the “marginalized.” Note that Lujan Grisham regards herself — the chief executive of the state — to be marginalized. The helpless infants she would help murder? Not marginalized.

In a world run by Cultural Marxists, to be marginalized is to have the whip hand.

Meanwhile, California’s rulers are so bent on promoting degeneracy among impressionable youth that we read this:

A new member of the California State Assembly is trying real hard to reward Planned Parenthood for an endorsement and a $4400 campaign contribution he received last year. Assemblyman Jesse Gabriel recently introduced AB 624, a bill that could put Planned Parenthood’s phone number in the pocket of every California student age 12 – 24.

How you ask? By requiring every student identification card in the state to include the number of “a sexual or reproductive health hotline.”

The law would apply even to private schools, including Christian schools. This is of course compelled speech, a violation of the First Amendment. The Constitution will go in the same trash bin as the Bible if progressives have their way.
