The Big Apple is Back: De Blasio Sets Timeline for ‘Normal’

But the timing sure is convenient for the Biden administration.

Despite some of the dire and dreary events that our nation has experienced in the last few months, there is still a great deal of hope here in the United States.  Some of this eternal optimism stems from the spirit of this nation herself, always striving forward toward a more just and peaceable union.

But this inborn positivity has had a heck of a boost this week, as vaccine deployment continues to outpace even the lofty goals that we set for ourselves, and cities far and wide begin to roll back their previous pandemic precautions.

This week, one of the true bellwether cities of the coronavirus crisis made a major announcement in this regard.

New York City will fully reopen starting July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Thursday.

“We are ready for stores to open, for businesses to open, offices, theaters, full strength,” de Blasio said in announcing the date on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

It’s the first time the city will be fully reopen in more than a year. The first shutdown began March 2020 when the city became the U.S. epicenter in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Restaurants, gyms, shops, hair salons and arenas will open at full capacity. Smaller theaters could reopen over the summer and Broadway is on track for opening by September. Schools will be back at “full strength” in the fall.

New York City was dealt a raw hand with the COVID-19 crisis, as it was one of the first locales to begin seeing cases, and with a population density that was highly conducive to the contagious occasion.  The announcement that they will be reopening is very likely a signal that the coronavirus crisis is over – and with curious timing.

The Biden administration seems to be repeatedly framing COVID-19’s demise to occur just before the July 4th holiday. This is either pure coincidence or extremely clever marketing, as it ties the patriotism of Independence Day, to the end of an era that saw a great deal of political tumult.  Biden could certainly find a way to use the occasion to portray the Trump era as one of oppressive stagnation, while riding the coattails of the Founding Fathers in the process.

This timing is a PR strategist’s dream come true.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
