County Execs In Upstate New York Want 14-Day Quarantine For NYC Travelers



The fight against coronavirus is getting fairly intense all around the globe, but it seems some truly unprecedented measures are being taken to flatten the curve in the state of New York.

Apparently, New York state county executives are wanting to impose 14-day quarantine measures around the lines for their counties on anyone who might be traveling into their area from coronavirus hotbeds like New York City.

Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner:

Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin told the Washington Examiner he informed New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker on Friday that he would issue a health order enforcing a 14-day quarantine on any visitors.

“Cuomo seized power in one of his executive orders … and vested it in the health department and the state health department. Prior to that, county health departments had wide latitude in state statute,” McLaughlin said. “It still remains in state statute, but he set it up in his mind so that we had to go to him and get permission. So, we did that. We said we don’t want people coming here, but if they are, we want a 14-day quarantine.”

McLaughin stated that Gov. Cuomo did not immediately respond, so he went ahead and released the order about the same time as Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo put out a similar order calling for travelers from New York to quarantine for 14 days after visiting the state.

Cuomo ended up threatening Raimondo with legal action after the order was issued, which led to its repeal.

McLaughlin already stated that he is getting calls from other counties who are wanting to impose a similar order.

When you look at the numbers from Rensselaer County, it’s not hard to understand why they want to keep folks from areas that are experiencing an explosion of cases from coming into their area. The county is 2 1/2 hours north of NYC and boasts a population of more than 150,000 people.

As of now, they have only 52 cases of the virus. They obviously want to keep things that way, and a good way to do it is to impose measures that allow them to keep folks out who could be potential carriers.

What’s truly ironic about all of this is how the vast majority of individuals wanting to take these kind of measures are radical leftists who hated on conservatives for wanting to keep illegal immigrants out of our country because of illness and disease among other reasons.

Now all of the sudden they are discovering how effective keeping people out of their areas can be in this kind of situation. These kind of measures work and this virus is highlighting that fact for all to see.

The left will definitely have a harder time arguing against a secure border and the enforcement of immigration law after this is all said and done.


Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.



Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard




For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
