Vaccine Mandates Arrive for New York City Businesses

The move is being largely criticized by freedom advocates.

Published

In the liberal haven of New York City, the latest coronavirus precautions to arrive have some Americans crying foul.

As the delta variant continues to surge in many parts of the country, there are some medical experts who believe that a new wave of the pandemic could be upon us.  Cases in Florida, for instance, are higher than they were even during the early onset of the outbreak, back when vaccines weren’t even available.

This is leading to desperate measures by some, including authorities in The Big Apple, who this week crossed a line that many believed would never be crossed.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio mandated inoculations for a range of indoor venues at a news conference Tuesday morning, requiring proof of Covid vaccinations from employees and customers of indoor eateries, gyms and entertainment centers.

The order goes into effect Aug. 16, with full enforcement beginning Sept. 13. De Blasio said the mandate, known as the Key to NYC Pass, would encourage increased immunizations to combat the spread of the delta coronavirus variant.

“When you hear those words, I want you to imagine the notion that, because someone’s vaccinated, they can do all the amazing things that are available in this city,” de Blasio said of the Key to NYC Pass.

And this wasn’t just some legislative lip service.

De Blasio added that the city would begin inspecting businesses for compliance in mid-September. All affected customers and workers can either provide their vaccination cards or upload their proof of vaccination to the Excelsior Pass application.

Conservative media has begun to refer to such mandates as “segregation” of the unvaccinated, and are claiming that this could cause many of those who’ve chosen to remain un-inoculated to be treated as second-class citizens here in the United States.

Famous Bounty Hunter Joins Search for Brian Laundrie in Florida

Laundrie has been evading police for days on end.

Published

The most wanted man in America may be hiding out in a Florida nature reserve, and police have spent several days scouring the vast wilderness looking for clues.

Brian Laundrie, a person of interest in the death of his fiancée Gabby Petito, disappeared from his parents’ home in North Port, Florida last week with no cell phone and no wallet.  The story was that he would be doing some hiking in the Carlton Reserve, but given the situation regarding Petito’s death, there is little doubt that Laundrie’s disappearance was purposeful.

Now, one of the nation’s most famous bounty hunters is on the case.

Dog the Bounty Hunter arrived at Brian Laundrie’s parents’ home Saturday, knocked on the door and met silence, but he’s already picked up a scent.

“The reason I went to Mr. [Christopher] Laundrie is I carry a reputation with me,” he told Fox News Digital moments later. “The reputation is, ‘He gives you a second chance. He’s gonna get you, but he gives you a second chance.’”

The reality TV star and legendary bounty hunter, whose real name is Duane Chapman, is a father of 13 who lost a daughter around the same age as Gabby Petito in a car accident in 2006. He was already in Florida on a honeymoon with his wife Francie Chapman, he said, when people began reaching out to him to look into Laundrie’s disappearance.

The television star was hoping for the best.

Laundrie’s parents reported him missing Friday, Sept. 17, telling police they hadn’t seen him in three days.

“And the dad can still reach out to me, through social media,” Chapman said. “Let’s get the kid captured alive. Alive.”

Laundrie has been charged with federal bank fraud after being found to have used Petito’s debit card after her death.

As Joe Biden Pushes Debunked ‘Whipping’ Story, Border Patrol Lashes Out

These agents were NOT happy.

Published

on

Last week, a number of disturbing images erupted at the southern border, that appeared to depict Border Patrol officer chasing migrants on horseback.

To make matters worse, the way in which the photos were presented seemed to suggest that these agents were using the reins of their mounts to “whip” the migrants, invoking imagery from a much darker time in America’s past.

Even President Joe Biden and the White House Press Secretary seemed perturbed by it, but there was one problem:  Border Patrol claims none of it is accurate.

On Friday, amid an ongoing investigation into the agents – who have now been shifted to desk duty – and a day after the Biden administration barred the use of horses in Del Rio, the president tore into those agents.

“To see people treated like they did, horses barely running over, people being strapped – it’s outrageous,” Biden said, making a whipping motion with his hand. “I promise you, those people will pay. There will be an investigation underway now and there will be consequences. There will be consequences.”

This didn’t sit well with agents, however.

Border Patrol agents were stunned and angered by the comments, which both claimed without evidence that migrants were run over and whipped, and at the same time cast a shadow over the investigation.

“Would you go to work and do your best knowing that if you do your boss is going to ‘make you pay’?” one agent told Fox News.  “I’m dumbfounded and don’t know what to say.”

The agent asked, “Is the president threatening to throw us in prison?”

Another said: “I see the administration wants to fry our agents. He just started a war with Border Patrol.”

Biden’s continued bungling of the border situation has been a key part of his flailing approval numbers of late, and this attempt to throw federal law enforcement under the bus certainly isn’t going to help either.
