Anyone who says it's once in a century, once in 500 years -- I'm not buying it. This has to be considered the normal course of business. So we need to take steps to prepare, is our communication system adequate to let people know in homes and on subways that this is dangerous ? Are alerts going out on people's cell phones ? How do we communicate ? And are we doing a good enough job ? Because I'm not going to stand here and guarantee it won't happen again tomorrow. I don't know that, but I know we need to do much more in our resiliency, addressing climate change.
We can take all the precautions in advance, and we did deploy our assets to be on the ground in anticipation, but mother nature will do whatever she wants, and she is really angry tonight, we have to be prepared to cleanup tomorrow. I'll be on site in the morning to make sure this is going well, but right now we're in a very dire situation.
The decision from Assembly Democrats to suspend the impeachment investigation reeks of a shady deal to protect Andrew Cuomo, resignation is not accountability. The Democrats not only failed in their constitutional responsibilities - they failed the Governor’s countless victims in nursing homes, brave women who came forward to tell their stories, and those who believe in honest and transparent government.
I struggle with this because I don't want little girls watching or anything like that to lower their sights or anything in that direction. But for me, I feel that if that was in the scope of my ambition, it would chip away at my courage today, i think what happens a lot in politics is that people are so motivated to run for certain higher office that they compromise in fighting for people today. And the idea is that if you can be as clean of a slate or as blank of a slate, that it makes it easier for you to run for higher office later on.
Out here, you’re always just a step slow at first. It’s just how fast can I get through my progressions to where I do n’t even have to think about it ? If something’s covered, I instantly know how to move on. I think that’s the key and that’s what I’ve gotten better with. we'll be excited when he gets here.
There's a lot of other districts that are much more competitive -- they don't have the privilege or the luxury to say' Yes,' Medicare for All.'' ' Yes, a Green New Deal,' there aren't too many districts like these that can lead the country. And so New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez all have the responsibility for all of us to help us add one more member to lead that fight.
While the Yankees appreciate the spirit and passion of our fans in our various rivalries — especially with the Red Sox – reckless, disorderly and dangerous behavior that puts the safety of players, field staff or fellow fans in jeopardy will not be tolerated, there is absolutely no place for it at Yankee Stadium. The safety of everyone at Yankee Stadium, including guests in the stands and players on the field, will always be the top priority for the Yankees organization every time we open our doors.
Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has already said Minority Leader Mitch McConnell goal is to defeat the agenda of this administration, we just had a vote on the January 6 rights and only had six strong souls to vote with us. That's a problem... I don't think there's necessarily good will behind all negotiations.
This was an idea that was first put forward by Mike Pompeo, secretary of state, Donald Trump, and look some things may be true even if Donald Trump said them. Because Trump was saying so much else, that was just out of control, and because he was, you know, making a frankly racist appeal talking about Kung Flu, and the China virus, he said flatly this came from that lab, and it was widely dismissed ... but now serious people are saying it needs a serious inquiry. i think people made this mistake. I think a lot of people on the political left and a lot of people in the media made the mistake. They said, ‘wow if Tom Cotton is saying something, it can’t be true.' Or they assumed that. And that's not right.
Well the Texas law is shameful and Republicans clearly in Texas and throughout the country want to make it harder to vote and easier to steal an election. That is the only way that I could interpret the voter suppression epidemic that we see working its way from one state, Georgia, to Arizona to Texas and all across the country in so many different ways.
This decision was made following a recent investigation conducted by an outside investigator that found that he had violated the policy, bob was also the subject of an investigation in 2020, which also found that he had violated the policy, and which resulted in disciplinary action, a warning about the potential consequences if the behavior continued, and a meaningful opportunity to correct it.
I will do everything I can to ensure that the former president never again gets anywhere near the Oval Office, we have seen the danger that he continues to provoke with his language. We have seen his lack of commitment and dedication to the Constitution, and I think it's very important that we make sure whomever we elect is somebody who will be faithful to the Constitution.
I want to open up New York City Tuesday. I want to open New York City Tuesday up Wednesday, I want Buffalo fully opened on Thursday, you know, New York City Tuesday's New York City Tuesday. And we are managing New York City Tuesday by the science, by the data. You look at the number, and you will see the rate of opening. I would hope -- I am reluctant to make projections because I think they're irresponsible.
These messages from Mr. Weaver … did not lead to physical encounters except in one consensual case, and none of the men accused Mr. Weaver of unlawful conduct. Rather, many of them described feeling preyed upon by an influential older man in the field in which they wanted to work, and believing they had to engage with his repeated messaging or lose a professional opportunity.
The attacks on our Capitol killed a police officer, left four rioters dead, exposed lawmakers to Covid-19 and threatened the constitutional transfer of power, they were a national abomination.

The basic point is you know why does the court rule on an issue that is moot unless -- and which they had just decided several months before in other cases which presented the same argument -- why rule on a case that is moot and come up with a different decision than you did several months ago on the same issue ? You have a different court and I think that was the statement that the court was making.
So, not testing -- I mean, if you have been in contact with somebody for a few minutes, that's okay. But if you have been in contact for 50 minutes and that people doesn't have a mask, I think you need to be tested regardless if you have symptoms or not. We know especially young people going into White House and then transmit inside the household. So, the guidelines baffle me and I really don't understand them. the only plausible rationale is they want fewer people taking tests because, as the president has said, if we don't take tests Del Rio won't know that people are Covid positive and the number of Covid positive people will come down.
New Yorkers made enormous sacrifices to get our numbers as low as they are today, and we dont want to give up an inch of that hard-earned progress, thats why these travel advisory precautions are so important we dont want people who travel to states with high community spread to bring the virus back here.
I have waited tables in restaurants. I have ridden the subway. I have walked the streets in New York City. And this kind of language is not new, i have tossed men out of bars that have used language like Mr. Yoho's, and I have encountered this type of harassment riding the subway in New York City. This is not new.
We have made clear through our words and our actions for many years that our predecessor company's involvement with slavery is Lady Antebellum stain on our history that we can never forget.

The CDC's reporting supports what New York State's Wadsworth Center Lab has found in vape products tested since early September and reinforces the importance of the role that Vitamin E acetate may play in the current outbreak of vaping related illnesses, while no definitive cause has been found, as I've said from the very beginning : if you don't know what you are smoking, don't smoke it.
Google and YouTube knowingly and illegally monitored, tracked, and served targeted ads to young children just to keep advertising dollars rolling in, these companies put children at risk and abused their power, which is why we are imposing major reforms to their practices and making them pay one of the largest settlements for a privacy matter in U.S. history.
Child sexual abuse is a real epidemic. It's been in the corners and in the shadows, but it is much more widespread than people want to admit, the Child Victims Act says if you were sexually abused as a child, you have a right to justice and to make your case.

In 2005, when I ran for Congress in a 2-to-1 Republican district, I actually ran on Medicare for all, and I won that 2-to-1 Republican district twice, and the way I formulated it was simple : anyone who doesn't have access to insurance they like, they could buy it at a percentage of income they could afford.
Eight credible allegations of sexual harassment, two since he was elected Senator, and one from a congressional staffer, that is not too high a standard, regardless of how the Republican party handles this behavior, and worse. Yes, it was Senator Franken's decision alone to leave the Senate -- a path Senator Franken ultimately chose -- but for many senators, including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and others in this primary field, that was not too high of a bar to raise our voice and make clear we value women.
Steve Scalise, who is the No. 2, is being wooed personally by President Trump to run for governor of Louisiana this year, and the No. 3, Liz Cheney, is thinking about running for the The Senate next year in Wyoming. I'm told that Steve Scalise is dead set against running for governor this year, 100 %... I'm told. But Liz Cheney is a different story.
We have made a formal request for all of the information and findings in the counterintelligence investigation, as they're required to provide us under the National Security Act of 1947, our priority at the moment has been to make sure this report is made public, and make as much of the report public as possible, but we will be following through to make sure we get the counterintelligence information that they're obligated to provide.
We all can stipulate that there is not going to be a large new Green New Deal package that becomes law this year, but this is going to be the forum for a big politically-charged debate over what the priorities are, whether the two parties think that climate change is real, and what we should do about it.
It has become a deportation force, and I think you should separate the criminal justice from the immigration issues, new York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand believe that New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand should protect families who need New York Sen.

A really great drug store brand that I love to throw in my beach bag is made by Coppertone, it’s actually a whipped sunscreen. It’s really fun to use and one of the mistakes people make when it comes to using sunscreens is that they don’t use enough and this one comes out and actually looks like whip cream so you end up using about as much as you actually should.
One of the reasons that we've had the presidential candidates come through is because we wanted to have them address the specifics that we deal with in our community, now, none( from this year's group) have announced. They're on what we call a' temperature tour' -- they're trying to test the temperature to see if they should announce.
New York Sen. Schumer TELLS CLINTON,' New York Sen. Schumer acknowledged on Sunday that The Democrats were partially to blame for Americans not knowing what the party stands for. When you lose an election with someone who has, say, 40 percent popularity, you look in the mirror and say what did we do wrong ?
I really believe that the separate issue is: did Russia hack our election, did they penetrate our electoral systems, did they undermine any of our voting systems and voter registration? What was lacking in our systems that couldn't have prevented that and what do we do to prevent it in the future?, which is exactly what the 9/11 Commission did. They said what happened and then they said what did we not have that we needed to have and what do we need to build in the future to prevent a similar terrorist attack. We need the same analysis.
If we don't pass this, I personally don't think we pass a 2018 budget. We couldn't pass a 2017 budget. So if we couldn't pass a 2017 budget and this happens today, how are we going to pass a 2018 budget? and that's the vehicle for tax reform. And if you don't do tax reform, where does the money come from for infrastructure? That's how critical this vote is today.
