The New York City mayoral race has featured a crowded field of city council members and other public officials, community activists and organizers, and a certain Silicon Valley technocrat who draws the ire of both party-line Democrats and socialists alike. With the political makeup of New York City resembling a deep shade of blue, the winner of June 22nd’s Democratic Primary will be the next mayor of the City of New York — a fact that the resurgent left-wing of the Democratic Party is not exactly embracing with open arms.

Over the past few years, New York progressives and socialists…

CS/HB 1: Combating Public Disorder was signed into law this week after passing through the Florida state legislature early on in the 2021 legislative session.

Both of New York’s U.S. Senators, dozens of State Assemblymembers, and popular U.S. Representatives from New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Jamaal Bowman have called for Cuomo’s resignation after Democratic Party officials faced increased pressure this week to speak out on the mounting allegations of sexual harassment and COVID-19 data cover-ups carried out by the embattled New York Governor.

On March 25th of last year, nearly a full year ago, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo issued a statewide advisory in collaboration with the New York Department of Health preventing nursing homes from denying patient admissions based on the patient’s COVID-19 status. This opened the door for COVID-positive patients to be admitted to long-term-care facilities where chronic staffing shortages and a lack of funding and essential resources led to tens of thousands of unnecessary COVID infections and over 15,000 nursing home deaths in New York State as of March of 2021. …
