But of course: Music stars from Wuhan virus-infected states get pass on NYC quarantine rules for VMAs

From NY Post: When music’s biggest stars descend on New York for the Video Music Awards this week, NYPD cops will show up to check out the shows.

But they won’t be judging the talent. Officers in the NYPD’s TV/Movie unit will see if the performers and their entourages are wearing masks and staying socially distant, city officials told The Post.

Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus and many others are set to perform at various outdoor locations “with limited or no audience” on Sunday, Aug. 30. The show’s original location at Barclays Arena was dropped due to COVID-19 concerns.

“The Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and Citywide Events is working in close coordination with the production to ensure guidelines are being followed,” a City Hall spokesperson said, adding that the NYPD unit will be doing “compliance checks during the production.”

But unlike other travelers, the VMA musicians, singers and dancers won’t have to follow a state rule to quarantine for 14 days if they come to New York from any of 34 states, including California and Florida, with average COVID infection rates exceeding 10 percent.

Under an executive order by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, anyone who violates the quarantine order is subject to a fine up to $10,000 or up to 15 days in jail.

But the state Department of Health has granted the VMAs a semi-exemption to the quarantine rule.

They can “participate in the production of the show,” a spokeswoman for Cuomo said, “but they will only interact with other members of the cast and crew and will quarantine when not working.”

Oregon governor threatening more restrictions due to these Wuhan virus numbers that are…well, see for yourself

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (demorat) is threatening more restrictions to the citizens due to the Wuhan virus. From yesterday:

I looked last night at the Oregon Wuhan virus numbers and guess what you’ll find? A whole lot of NOTHING. Take a look:

Population of Oregon: 4,217,737.

Total Wuhan virus cases: 24,421.

Total deaths: 414.

Total tests: 510,100. Negative tests: 486,9000. Positive tests: 23,156. Total hospitalized: 1,984.

Based on the numbers, percentages and “the curve,” why in the world is this governor threatening to shut down businesses again and mandate that people quarantine?

Apparently she believes the infection rate it too high. Governor Brown has determined that the test positivity rate must be at 5% or lower in order to meet HER public health metrics.

Read all about her rationale for re-starting restrictions in Oregon and possibly delaying opening schools (until April 2021!) here.

Most states would be perfectly fine with a Wuhan virus positivity rate of 5, 7, 8 or 10 percent. In Oklahoma we’re at a 7.3% positive rate. We’ve been open since May thanks to our republican governor.

Viruses are going to virus. There’s only so much the government can do to control Wuhan.

But as we are seeing, there’s MUCH more demorat governors can do to control the people.

Demorat LA mayor cuts utilities to ‘party house’ in Hollywood Hills

What’s the mayor going to do if homeowners still party while using generators? Send in his brown shirts?

LA Mayor Garcetti/LA Times photo

From AOL:

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti ordered utilities cut off Wednesday at a home where “several” parties have been held in violation of social distancing rules during the coronavirus pandemic, his office said.

Garcetti had vowed on Aug. 5 to disconnect utilities at homes where local laws prohibiting large gatherings are repeatedly violated.

“With more than 2,000 Angelenos — and over 170,000 Americans — lost to COVID-19, we need every resident to undertake critical safeguards to stop the spread of this virus,” he said in a statement.

“That includes not hosting or attending parties that put themselves, their neighbors, and many others at risk.”

City officials described the residence only as “a house in the Hollywood Hills that had hosted several large parties in violation of public health orders.” Events took place there Aug. 8 and last Friday, the mayor’s office said.

Both times, police posted warnings that utilities would be cut off, the mayor’s office said. Such locations have sometimes turned into surrogates for a nightlife scene that has all but disappeared because of state orders that have closed bars and clubs to prevent spread of the coronavirus.

“Despite several warnings, this house has turned into a nightclub in the hills, hosting large gatherings in flagrant violation of our public health orders,” Garcetti said. “The City has now disconnected utilities at this home to stop these parties that endanger our community.”

The mayor made his Aug. 5 announcement that he would use utilities as a weapon against noncompliant locations a day after a woman was fatally shot at a Los Angeles mansion party that had been visited earlier by police who did not shut down the festivities.

Bloomberg derides hero Jack Wilson: “It’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot”

According to The Hill, Nanny Bloomberg said this on January 1 when speaking about the Texas West Freeway Church of Christ hero Jack Wilson who stopped a shooter with his own gun:

“It may be true that someone in the congregation had his own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people, but it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot,” the former mayor said earlier this month, adding, “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

Check it out:

Tell you what, Mr. Nanny Bloomberg: I’d rather have an “average” citizen carrying a gun than a CRIMINAL. At least I’d know that we aren’t all sitting ducks.

And I’m guessing that Bloomberg doesn’t know ANY of the basic firearm safety rules, including “know your target and what’s behind it.”

That’s because this assh*le wouldn’t know the first thing about what us “average” citizens face because he is surrounded by private security. Freakin HYPOCRITE.

So if an assailant decides to break into my home, I have to call 911 and WAIT for them to arrive and WAIT for them to decide to shoot a perp who most likely might have done me harm/killed me by then?

That’s liberal logic for ‘ya. Bloomberg is truly a mental disorder.
