New York Governor Cuomo, Who Previously Used National Guard to Quarantine New Rochelle, Goes Bananas Over Potential for Quarantine of New York Metro Area…

Take one heap of hypocrisy and one heap of irony and combine them; what you end up with is a New York Governor going bananas about the potential for the New York metropolitan areas being quarantined.

On March 10th New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called-in the national guard to quarantine a New York City suburb called New Rochelle. The alarming effort was called a “containment plan” by the governor to stop the spread of coronavirus.

However, Cuomo is now having fits as the potential for a “containment plan” over the New York City metropolitan area is being considered as a federal mitigation effort.

NEW YORK – New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has said that President Donald Trump’s proposed quarantine of New York to limit the spread of coronavirus would be tantamount to a ‘federal declaration of war.’

‘If you start walling off areas all across the country it would just be totally bizarre, counter-productive, anti-American, anti-social,’ said Cuomo in an interview with CNN on Saturday. (link)

Governor Cuomo uses national guard to create containment zone of New Rochelle, and all is good.  President Trump contemplates using national guard to create containment zone for New York city, and it’s a declaration of war… Gotcha.

Realistically, what President Trump is likely considering is a shut down of the airports in the New York metro area.  But it’s quite typical to see the apoplexy about it.

WATCH:

.

Additionally:

Rhode Island police have begun stopping cars with New York license plates, and the National Guard will soon help officials conduct house-to-house searches to force anyone who has traveled from New York to enter isolation.

“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) said, according to Bloomberg. “That risk is called New York City.”

Raimondo on Thursday issued an executive order enforceable by law mandating that anyone who has traveled to New York via any form of transportation must enter into a two-week self-quarantine. (link)

.

Meanwhile… Many can see what Governor Cuomo’s reaction is really all about:

        Cuomo knows, NYC outranks New Rochelle, but all New Yorkers are equal.

        Two healthy young men, a Tahitian and a Canadian, were standing on the stage of William F. Buckley’s Firing Line Show. Buckley also had two contestants for an impromptu game show – a leftist and a conservative.
        Buckley said to the leftist and the conservative “The man on the left is from Tahiti, the man on the right is from Canada. That’s all the information you get. Now, which man is the better ice skater?
        The leftist became outraged at the difficulty and the unfairness of the question, and stormed off.
        The conservative laughed and said “Why, the Canadian of course!”

        I made that joke up, but it should and could have happened.

    There’s only so much POTUS can do to get hydroxychloroquine to be used, but it’s getting unethical not to use it on dying patients. I think in the end the reluctance to use the Trump Pill will be seen as a huge negative towards TDS inflicted Dems and their propagandists.

      Let’s find out if it actually works before we start accusing people of things. It’s possible it works on some but not others. It’s possible some combination of drugs works in some cases. It’s possible it’s like Tamiflu and maybe it knocks a day or two off the recovery time.

      I don’t think anybody who recovered is lying, nor the doctors involved. But, we don’t know if their results are typical.

      The best thing Trump is doing is telling the doctors to cut through the bureaucratic b.s. and just try it. Same with vaccine trials. Same with other treatments. Let’s hope and pray it works.

        Once you have it and are at risk, you must treat immediately. It is not a thing to see where it goes. Once you get to the need a ventilator stage, there is a good chance you are not coming back. That is the approach that needs to be taken.

        Having ventilators only changes it from almost certain death to less than certain.

          Written prior to France lifting the ban – the article is long and covers many different things in France’s health care and the response top Corona:

          “…Raoult was part of a clinical trial that in which hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin healed 90% of Covid-19 cases if they were tested very early. (Early, massive testing is at the heart of the successful South Korean strategy.)

          Raoult is opposed to the total lockdown of sane individuals and possible carriers – which he considers “medieval,” in an anachronistic sense. He’s in favor of massive testing (which, besides South Korea, was successful in Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam) and a fast treatment with hydroxychloroquine. Only contaminated individuals should be confined…

          “… On Tuesday, the French Health Ministry officially prohibited the utilization of treatment based on chloroquine recommended by Raoult. In fact the treatment is only allowed for terminal Covid-19 patients, with no other possibility of healing. This cannot but expose the Macron government to more accusations of at least inefficiency – added to the absence of masks, tests, contact tracing and ventilators.

          On Wednesday, commenting on the new government guidelines, Raoult said, “When damage to the lungs is too important, and patients arrive for reanimation, they practically do not harbor viruses in their bodies any more. It’s too late to treat them with chloroquine. Are these the only cases – the very serious cases – that will be treated with chloroquine under the new directive by [French Health Minister] Veran?” If so, he added ironically, “then they will be able to say with scientific certainty that chloroquine does not work…”

            Well here is the deal. We are all going to catch this at some point. It may be this flu season or the next. Eventually your number is going to come up. therefore a long term approach is necessary.

            I am currently taking a vitamin D and zinc supplement.

            The listed medical conditions are often associated with obesity. That means high blood pressure, diabetes and water retention. The obvious thing to do if you or a loved one are overweight is to start dieting and start losing weight. Doctors often tell their patients that if you lose the weight, you do not need to take all these medications.

            You want to do everything possible to keep yourself from having to go on a ventilator. At that point you are being kept alive by a machine.

            If you have issues with retaining water, that is very important in treating pneumonia. If you have swelling of the feet or ankles, see your doctor and Dr. will probably prescribe Lasix and tell you to cut back on water consumption.

            So prepare like you are going to get it and start lowering your risk factors.

        Frankly I don’t respect your thinking that no one is lying. I watched a grand stander on Fox claim he was a doctor that was sure people had died because there was not a ventilator available. He said he had not made the choice but was sure others had removed someone from a ventilator in order to save someone else. He wouldn’t say it but he was implying someone may have died because of the shortage. Then we find that NYC has 1000s of ventilators stored in warehouses. IMO lying is no problem for this bunch including Cuomo. The whole sh-tshow is about politics and letting people die is just collateral damage. The American people have a short time to wake up. The democrats are serious about getting back in power and changing this country into another third world hell hole.

          In the wake of 9/11, New York City appropriately received great sympathy and support from throughout the nation.

          But when an odious politician such as Gov. Cuomo tries to manipulate events and perceptions for obvious political advantage, the sympathy and support runs into a brick wall. After all of the shitty moves by the Democrat party (and to be certain, a substantial segment of the Republican party, too) which over the last few years have been engineered to undermine the Constitutional order, and the Republic as a whole, those of us who support the Constitution and the Republic have gotten hip to their deceptions and blandishments. So these sorts of tricks are increasingly running into pushback.

          But on a positive note, this sort of thing is helping to make it a way more conceivable – and even entertainable – thought that if the assault on the Constitution and the Republic continue, and even escalate, maybe it is time to part ways with the seditious areas of the nation before it is too late.

          If these people wish us to be impoverished, disenfranchised, and ground down under their autocratic tyranny, why would we play along with this? GOPe civic nationalism is a sucker’s game; it is a losing strategy.

          Okay, stand & fight, but do not neglect to learn – down in your bones – to what lengths these people will go to deprive you of your birthrights as citizens of the Republic. Your foundational documents, Declaration of Independence, and Constitution, are just pieces of paper to these schemers, and not the living, breathing expressions of the aspirations of a People who joined together to have a real say in who and what we choose to be amongst ourselves, and to the world at large.

          They’ve got plans for you, buckoo, and it is past time for you to learn how to say no. If that means we need to dissolve the bonds with the schemers, and start anew, well, it wouldn’t be the first time, now would it? So begin to seriously think about these matters. Drift is death, and time lost can never be recouped.

        It looks like taking the Trump drug alone may act as a preventivetive against the virus like it does for maleria. That would be wonderful for all our medical people and I hope they are writing prescriptions for each other right now.

      Hi Zy, I think the patient and Doctor should decide. You might not be aware the HCQ does not work well on patients at the dying stage, those that have suffered severe scarring in the lungs. This point was brung out by Dr Raoult in his stunning recovery tests.. 79 made it 1 dint an 80 year old . Meaning the earlier its used the better..rather than waiting until its full blown damage…in effect..1st resort use rather than last.

        The problem is that the disease does not just effect the lungs. As it advances most suffer liver and kidney damage. Since both hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin have some liver toxicity, once the disease process reaches a certain stage in many people their use is contraindicated. Still since about 86% world wide and 70% of those in Seattle don’t make it once they get to the point where they must be intubated and put on a respirator if it was me, liver and kidneys be damned, give it too me anyway.
        So that is why the key is early administration of the hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin protocol. Get the thing reversed before liver damage manifests.

      This is the same Commie Governor who insisted that a plastic bag ban had to be put in place on March 1st, just when the virus was starting to peak.

      Despite heartfelt pleas from grocery stores, retailers and even scientists who proved that reusable cloth bags would actually contribute to spreading the virus and other diseases, Cuomo and his fellow Servants of Satan, aka, the State Legislature, refused to budge.

      El Supremo Cuomo is probably the most fascist dictator that has ever ruled NY, but of course, it is all for the “greater good.” Reminds me of this little gem:

      Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons’ cruelty may sometimes sleep, but those who torment us for our own good will do so without end, for they have the approval of their conscience.

Can’t get enough of Lewis. An interesting factoid is that both Lewis and JFK died on November 22, 1963.

Those poor souls who died of influenza are just as dead as the 1,500+ COVID-19 fatalities and yet there was no talk of quarantines and mass business closing during the flu season. Were we uncaring then and more collectively empathic now or is something else going on to promulgate an entire country shutting down?

Layer on top of that the breathless American press that freaks out if it’s going to rain or snow an inch and constantly on the prowl for something to panic the public and blame on Trump, and we had the perfect storm of fear, uncertainty, and something new and unknown. And away we went:

        Right now is not the time to go nuclear on the Chicoms… but there will be a reckoning.

        IMHO, the Chicoms realize this is coming and therefore are attempting a CYA propaganda agenda. BUT, everybody, including the EU, knows the truth.

        A time for Schadenfreude is coming folks. We will get over this and we’ll get even.

        I feel sad for the people of China… Hopefully they will be freed from the authoritarian fascists ( commies in word only ) that are tormenting them. I know quite a few Chinese and they are, mostly, good people. No one deserves the Chicom government.

      I ask myself the same question; from current data, the response seems to make no sense. Best I can tell from current situation, the “deciders” are spooked by the course of the illness in the 5-10% that get really sick. The response from doctors taking care of these people seems to be the same, world wide: “This isn’t the flu”.

      2) The severity of the disease in the “hot zones” is worrisome….The US mortality has doubled in 48 hours.

      3) This virus seems to be, what a virologist called “slipppery”….it’s seems to be capable of mutating very quickly….so the virus could change and be less infectious or become our worst nightmare. Better go all out until the course of the disease becomes clear.

      4) IIRC, the 1918 flu came in several waves and it was the last that killed 50-100 million people.

          https://www.cbsnews.com/news/overwhelmed-by-flu-cases-some-ers-turn-ambulances-away-california/

          “Health officials in Southern California are warning the public that the current flu season is so intense that some hospitals are rerouting patients due to their increasingly limited capacity. From Laguna Beach to Long Beach, emergency rooms were struggling to cope with the overwhelming cases of influenza and had gone into “diversion mode,” during which ambulances are sent to other hospitals, CBS Los Angeles reports.”

          “It’s not just Orange County, it’s all across the country,” internist Dr. Ray Casciari with St. Joseph Hospital told CBS2 Los Angeles. “So, yes, this is going to be an epidemic year,” Casciari warned.

          https://news.yahoo.com/hospitals-overwhelmed-flu-patients-treating-192834539.html
          “The 2017-2018 influenza epidemic is sending people to hospitals and urgent-care centers in every state, and medical centers are responding with extraordinary measures: asking staff to work overtime, setting up triage tents, restricting friends and family visits and canceling elective surgeries, to name a few. “We are pretty much at capacity, and the volume is certainly different from previous flu seasons,” says Dr. Alfred Tallia, professor and chair of family medicine at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey. “I’ve been in practice for 30 years, and it’s been a good 15 or 20 years since I’ve seen a flu-related illness scenario like we’ve had this year.” Tallia says his hospital is “managing, but just barely,” at keeping up with the increased number of sick patients in the last three weeks. The hospital’s urgent-care centers have also been inundated, and its outpatient clinics have no appointments available.

          “The story is similar in Alabama, which declared a state of emergency last week in response to the flu epidemic. Dr. Bernard Camins, associate professor of infectious diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, says that UAB Hospital cancelled elective surgeries scheduled for Thursday and Friday of last week to make more beds available to flu patients.
          “We had to treat patients in places where we normally wouldn’t, like in recovery rooms,” says Camins. “The emergency room was very crowded, both with sick patients who needed to be admitted and patients who just needed to be seen and given Tamiflu.””

          https://www.guampdn.com/story/opinion/2018/11/10/letter-flu-overwhelmed-hospitals-last-year/1953421002/

          “A historically severe flu season last winter killed 80,000 Americans including 183 children. Nationwide, hospitals were overwhelmed and critical medical supplies were depleted by life-threatening diseases caused by a mutant influenza virus. Recently, physicians have diagnosed the first American flu fatalities of this year. Four weeks ago, a previously healthy Florida child was killed by the Influenza B virus. Two weeks ago, a Michigan school district shut down as a precautionary measure due to a “horrible outbreak of flu” among students and staff.”

Key point some of the data is based on laboratory data and some is based on statistical estimates (everyone is familiar with problems associated with statistical models) and notice the term influenza type illness: https://www.advisory.com/daily-briefing/2020/03/24/flu-update. “According to CDC, this year’s flu season has led to at least 17 million medical visits and 390,000 hospitalizations. CDC found that the percentage of outpatient visits for influenza-like illness increased to 5.8% in the week ending on March 14, up from 5.2% the previous week. The national baseline for those visits is 2.4%”
      CDC in its latest report estimated that there had been at least 23,000 deaths related to the flu as of March 14.” Note the term estimated.
      Start of the influenza season was the week of Oct. 5, 2019. and may run until May. So it has been running Five Months. How long has Covid-19 been running in the US?
      Now just for educational purposes: What does the 2019/2020 flu season actual laboratory confirmed data look like for end of Dec 2019 (week 52, not the 52nd week of the season):
      https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/weeklyarchives2019-2020/Week52.htm
      “Public Health Laboratories

      The results of tests performed by public health laboratories nationwide are summarized below. Data from public health laboratories are used to monitor the proportion of circulating viruses that belong to each influenza subtype/lineage.
      Week 52 Data Cumulative since September 29, 2019
      (week 40)
      No. of specimens tested 1,618 24,350
      No. of positive specimens 1,172 10,034
      Positive specimens by type/subtype
      Influenza A 474 (40.4%) 4,090 (40.8%)
      (H1N1)pdm09 387 (91.3%) 3,028 (78.1%)
      H3N2 37 (8.7%) 849 (21.9%)
      Subtyping not performed 50 213
      Influenza B 698 (59.6%) 5,944 (59.2%)
      Yamagata lineage 2 (0.4%) 95 (2.1%)
      Victoria lineage 548 (99.6%) 4,342 (97.9%)
      Lineage not performed 148 1,507

      Nationally influenza B/Victoria viruses have been reported more frequently than other influenza viruses this season followed by A(H1N1)pdm09. The predominant virus varies by region. Regional and state level data about circulating influenza viruses can be found on FluView Interactive. The predominant virus also varies by age group. Nationally, influenza B/Victoria viruses are the most commonly reported influenza viruses among children age 0-4 years (48% of reported viruses) and 5-24 years (59% of reported viruses), while A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses are the most commonly reported influenza viruses among persons 25-64 years (42% of reported viruses) and 65 years of age and older (43% of reported viruses). Additional age data can be found on FluView Interactive.
      Now we are about Eight weeks into the Covid-19 will it end in May who knows”
      No for Just Covid-19 in New York state (and their site seems indicative of their government. trying to be polite). As of 3/28/20.
      County-by-County Breakdown of Positive Cases Around New York State
      Governor Cuomo confirmed 7,681 additional cases of novel coronavirus, bringing the statewide total to 52,318 confirmed cases in New York State. Now which is the larger number, confirmed cases of influenza in the US for end of Dec 2019 or current number of confirmed cases of Covid 19 in New York state? Now add to this annual influenza vaccines at 40-60% effective, 40-50% coverage of the population, And on-lable treatment for influenza (relenza/tamiflu). Compare that to vaccine and readily available treatment for Covid-19.
      Hopefully this will help with folk that continually try to compare influenza to Covid19. Consider what the Covid19 outbreak would look like with no containment measures, and say another two months.
      This is not to say panic. It is to say exercise due caution and make educated decisions. Thank God for PDJT and his proactive actions!

      Now what about those suddenly recognized and lamented deaths for influenza? A vaccine that only 40-50% of the population take??? Boost vaccine utilization and those deaths will decline (yes, there are annual campaigns to do that). Add those rediscovered “grandma’s rules” (1)wash your hands and (2) fingers don’t go in your mouth, in your eyes or up your nose and deaths will also go down.
      For Covid-19 links to other state sites try:https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus there is a nice national map that is interactive that will take to individual states.

And for laughs, a possibly more virulent strain from a hospital ‘hot-house’. Well you ask yourself, how much longer would a lock-down need to be? It would need to be long enough so that there is no longer ANY viable virus in the general population. In other words several months. By that time your economy is in shambles along with your healthcare system which means deaths by multiple factors over this virus’s total. Best to let this virus exhaust it’s run. According to Dr. Birx, if they have counted only 1 in 1,000 cases and we have 100,000+ known cases and this virus has an R0=3, that would be 100 million cases in the US and hence we are at the last GENERATION. Even if her estimate is half of that, 1 in 500, that would be 50 million cases and we are 1 GEN away from the end.

            I’ve been tracking this for about 10 days. Most recent USA wide information is:
            Total tests: 735,704
            Total positive of those tested: 118,234 (16%–this is up from 13% a week ago)
            Total hospitalized: 16,729 (14% of positive cases, up from 8.5% a week ago)
            Total dead: 1965 (1.66 Case Fatality Rate. Note this is far lower than the 3-4% CFR used in the infamous Niall Fergusson Lancet model)

            the covidtracking site is not always updated to the figures in JHU website–sometimes lags 12-24 hours behind. Still, it is indicative. NY is 44% of cases nationwide, a bit less than that of deaths (42%). Including NJ and CT, this area accounts for 54% of all US cases (and 50% of deaths).

            Hence the discussion of travel limits if not quarantine from these areas. There are states with very limited number of cases. Even in larger states, such as Texas, cases and deaths are concentrated in specific cities/counties.

    The radical left has flipped back and forth more than a weather vane in a hurricane. They simply cannot get a story line and stick to it. When the President says he hopes the country can be moving back to normalcy by Easter the Fake News turns their dials to Apoplectic! “He’s killing seniors! He wants veterans to die! He’s putting people in extreme danger!” So then the President suggests a shutdown in New York and possibly other states with great increases in cases in order to limit the spread and all of a sudden “He’s crazy if you think we will have our people shelter in place.” These idiots cannot make up their minds? Maybe. I think the more likely thought process of the never Trumpers is that they want to tag him with everything negative and move Ole Andy up onto SLO-Joe’s pedestal. Well Andy, you should have told your people not to travel—period, end of statement. DeBozo thinks it should be him. Go to the gym Billy Boy. It’s supposed to be closed but go anyway. And stay.

    I agree lemon tree. How can the media explode on the President when he begins to reopen the country in the states that are not hot spots. As the treatment for the Wuhan virus becomes available and the quick diagnostic test is rolled out we can get back to work . And us old farts will just have to wear masks.

      Ok here is what I am hoping for. Two big game changers. The first is the Trump pill which is actually a pill cocktail. You know the one that the prestitude says was giving Americans false hope? The French government just approved that protocol for the treatment of the Wuhan virus aka corona. The U.K. will have to follow and come Monday it should be announced here that it will be the treatment of choice. Ideally everyone who tests positive for this should be treated as soon as possible. The second game changer is the Abbot diagnostic test that will give you a positive in there minutes and definitive negative in thirteen minutes.

      The information that this was going to work has been out there for a while and this administration has believed in it and they have been gathering the choloroquine for days. I hope they hit the ground running on Monday.

    45 has done what is best for USA and our Constitutional Republic…the numbers do not support military intervention except in support capacity as has been the protocol for the past month…

    Politically, this is also a WIN because Cuomo said this was a “declaration of war”…what exactly did Cuomo mean? We are all fighting to defeat the invisible hidden enemy…Cuomo’s comment is the real revelation…Cuomo has opened a pandora’s box on what powers he thinks he has as Governor because there are 49 more just like him…

      These tweets are so dead on!! Cuomo “screwed the pooch” tonight. Trump just pantsed him in front of the world! And really the whole DNC/media cabal. NYC is obviously the epicenter, exporting the virus all up and down the East Coast. Now Cuomo and the Dem governor’s take more and more ownership.

    It’s that attitude of “We’re more important than anyone else in the United States” and “What’s good for YOU is not what’s good for US” that makes the rest of America hate the “NY Attitude,”

    It won’t help Cuomo. He looks irrational AND arrogant.

    Look at Cuomo. What is the visual image (optics) he is trying to project?

    Maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger? The strong man governor? Remember him?
    The white shirt… another prop. Maybe that’s from Barry Obummer? The “clean” black guy, as Biden called him?

    But as soon as Cuomo opens his mouth, Andy sounds and looks like his old man. That played well back in his father’s day. Unfortunately, his style reminds people of a certain movie about a certain ethnic group in NY City that was associated with organized crime. Then there is his bro, now running his mouth in the MSM, big time. If Andy ever hopes to be president, he has a lot of political baggage and an questionable image to overcome.

        Car 54 was from back before NYC went completely ’round the bend. Up to Lindsay, the city was corrupt but generally sane. In the late 60’s they started going nuts (I’ve read that NYC “died” in 1965) and, with the sole exception of Rudy’s mayoralty, they’ve gone progressively more insane since. In retrospect, Rudy’s term is increasingly looking like Justinian 1’s reestablishment of the Western Roman Empire: a temporary, and ultimately unsustainable, beating back of the barbarian hordes.
