Is Cuomo opening day camps to bailout camp owner and Dem party chief Jay Jacobs?
Programs for special needs children will remain closed.
From John Gilmore
June 3, 2020 — New York’s schools are still closed. There won’t be summer school. Special needs children are not receiving home services they are entitled to, or year-round programs required by federal law, but yesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo decided to allow day camps to open this summer. Why the inconsistency?
Could it be that Cuomo is helping out his close political ally Jay Jacobs, owner of three very expensive day camps on Long Island? Jacobs owns Timber Lake Camps which runs three day camps, North Shore Day Camp, Hampton Country Day Camp and South Hampton Day Camp. Jacobs is also the Chair of the New York State Democratic Committee, and the Chair of the Nassau County Democratic Committee, in short he is the head of Democratic Party in NY next to Cuomo.
Why don’t you ask them. If rich kids can go to day camp why can’t special needs children get the services and school programs they are entitled to?
Governor Andrew Cuomo, (518) 474-8390
Jay Jacobs, Timber Lake Camps (800) 828-CAMP

How COVID Lockdowns Amplified the Current Violence
June 1, 2020 – The death of George Floyd while in the custody of a disgraced police officer with an atrocious record for abusing his power is as tragic as the hundreds that came before it. This was the first time I can recall a police officer being fired prior to any investigation into what happened. That alone speaks volumes.
But if it was not for the COVID LOCKDOWNS that have caused soaring unemployment above 30% and a forced social isolation, the violence on the streets would not be anywhere near as bad as it currently is. In her campaign statementLiz Glass, candidate for New York State Senate in District 27 had this to say about “social distancing:”
It should be noted that social distancing is a euphemism for social isolation, which was developed 70 years ago by the CIA and deployed against enemies of the state because it is more effective at breaking people down than any form of physical torture.
No job, no money, no hope, no social contact all add up to a unique form of torture. George Floyd’s tragic murder was the spark that ignited this fuel of hopelessness, despair and abandonment that is the fault of Governor’s who have sacrificed thousands of lives in the name of protecting “public health.” Of course we needed a public health response to COVID, but not by sacrificing everything else in its name. When the history books are written, Governor Cuomo, Mayor Bill De Blasio and many others will be noted as failing to strike that balance in a sensible way. That is unelss the goal was the destruction of the fabric of liberty and freedom in American society. Then these politicians will get a 10 out of 10 for their efforts!
Protests and civil disobedience are notoriously infiltrated by various groups working alternative agendas. The far-right neo-nazi movement could easily stoke the flames of riots to move us closer to the race war they have claimed for decades is inevitable. The far-left antifa never misses a chance to inflict violence and havoc anywhere, anytime and claim it is justified in a war against capitalism.
Take a look at this video of Black residents in Minneapolis who stop white protesters and remind them, “This is not your space.” The Black residents say they appreciate support from white protesters, but that they must stop destroying the Black community they have come into.
Isn’t that odd? White protesters in a Black neighborhood, destroying it?
BUT THERE IS REAL HOPE!!!
Nevertheless we are seeing other amazing things happening, such as the following video, where a protester and a police officer hug: not all cops are racists, not all protesters are thugs…
THIS is what THE POWERS THAT BE (TPTB) fear the most. When it comes time to enforce their Draconian laws on us – such as removing children from homes due to contact tracing or force vaccinating New Yorkers – if the local authorities won’t do it it won’t happen. This is where TPTB fear us the most — in Black, White, Brown, Red, Yellow and everyone coming together and stopping the madness and chaos they benefit from.
With his Dictator powers lasting until April of 2021, and dangerous fast-tracked COVID vaccines said to be available in the fall of 2020, if Cuomo leaves the Governor’s office there is no one who will have a shot at enforcing such a Draconian dictate. I believe Cuomo is going to fail at this, but he’s the only person with any shot. He’s already proven his allegiance to Big Pharma.
Back on June 13, 2019 Cuomo orchestrated the repeal of the Religious Exemption to vaccination in New York for children to attend school. The law was repealed in under 7 hours with absolutely no public comment from New York citizens. Few people recognized just how significant and horrifying that day truly was.
It laid the groundwork for what we are facing now – forced vaccination of the entire New York populace, both children and adults. It is of interest that Senator Brad Hoylman – who sponsored the repeal of the Religious Exemption to vaccination – also supports forcing every New Yorker to inject the COVID-19 vaccine. Hoylman is up for reelection on June 23rd.
The President of the United States ultimately has very little say in local vaccine mandates, as it is a power that was not specifically given to the federal government in the Constitution. Therefore the power resides with the States for each state to do as they see fit. Normally it would be the entire legislature in Albany that would determine if mandatory vaccination of every New Yorker would become law. But today Cuomo has the power to force vaccinate every New Yorker with the mere stroke of his pen!
Governor Cuomo is operating under an emergency powers declaration – S7919 – which allows him to create or remove any law that he declares is standing in the way of addressing the COVID-19 situation. Now that the NYSBA is giving their legal opinion that forced vaccination of every New Yorker should happen, and is legal, there is no way Cuomo is leaving New York to slight his buddy Sleepy Joe Biden and face Trump.
Just watch Cuomo everyday in his press conferences. The man simply LOVES being “King of New York” far too much. New York is very important to Big Pharma. I’ve received emails from all over the country and the world saying all eyes are on NY & NYC as we battle for medical freedom. The problem is that of the nearly 20 million New Yorkers many millions of us will not take the COVID-19 vaccine no matter what. How many exactly are there who will refuse? 1 million? 2 mil? 3 mil? 5? 10 ???
I’m really not sure.
The question is whether New York has reached a totalitarian tyranny where the will of millions simply won’t matter. I do not think we have reached that point yet. Do you?
May 30, 2020 — Brad Hoylman helped move NYCHA residents towards privatization as well as close St. Vincent’s Hospital, all while pretending to represent the wishes of his constituents.
Hoylman is the former General Counsel to the Partnership for New York City, which represents corporate interests in NYC, not the people’s interest. While Hoylman has pretended to stand up for the people’s rights he has done nothing to stop these corporate interests from having their way in Senate District 27.
In fact just 3 months ago in February Hoylman was pretending to protest in support of NYCHA residents while allowing privatization to creep in.
This year, Big Business interests are pressuring Mayor Bill de Blasio to end public housing as we know it, including in State Sen. Hoylman’s (district 27). And State Sen. Hoylman has not once denounced the mayor or the mayor’s plans. Like last year, Fight For NYCHA reasonably expect State Sen. Hoylman to put on a big show about how much he supports public causes, and then he will fold at the very last minute, like he always does.
“Is it no coincidence that, finally, on the same day when Mayor Bill de Blasio (announced the privatization scheme) in Brooklyn and Manhattan, it would take place as State Sen. Hoylman was leading this charade up in Albany?
But this is no surprise to those who know of Hoylman’s political past.
Closing St. Vincent’s Hospital
In 2010 Brad Hoylman was the chair of Manhattan Community Board 2 and he claimed to support saving St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village. However he turned his back on the community when Partnership for New York City began to call in mortgage notes from the public charity hospital that led to the hospital’s bankruptcy and liquidation at pennies on the dollar.
Remember Hoylman used to work for Partnership for New York City, and acts as if he still does!
And what was St. Vincent’s Hospital converted into? Luxury condominiums. Lower Manhattan residents are still reeling from the loss of this public charity hospital. Hospital closures in NYC have been happening the entire time Andrew Cuomo has been Governor, and Brad Hoylman has no problem going along with Cuomo’s program.

Liz Glass Campaign Statement
I am Elizabeth Glass. Mother of four, teacher, and Democratic candidate in Manhattan’s district 27. As an 11th generation New Yorker and 25 year-resident of Manhattan it pains me to say this, but our beloved city is in a bad place right now. Unlike post-911 – where everyone was pulling together – today crime and divisiveness are rampant, and everyone who had the ability to leave the city is simply gone.
New York is 6% of the US population, but 30% of all COVID-19 deaths in the US were New Yorkers. We can debate why that is the case, but the facts are clear: we need a paradigm shift in this post-coronavirus catastrophe; a dramatic change in the status quo. Business as usual just isn’t going to cut it.
I believe in a constituent-driven legislative body, and am committed to helping keep New Yorkers safe while also protecting their constitutional freedoms. Our elected officials and their corporate sponsors care about one thing and one thing only: enriching themselves at your expense. Corporations should never have precedence over the people.
Consider the new “Reimagine New York” education plan: despite the fact that our kids have zero risk of death from this disease, Governor Cuomo and the Gates Foundation want to end in-school learning, keeping our kids at home and alone, socially distant from their teachers, friends, and school community. It should be noted that social distancing is a euphemism for social isolation, which was developed 70 years ago by the CIA and deployed against enemies of the state because it is more effective at breaking people down than any form of physical torture.
Although half of Americans do not want the COVID-19 vaccine, my opponent Brad Hoylman supports forcibly vaccinating every single New Yorker. This fast-tracked, liability-free experimental product will forego standard safety studies. New Yorkers are NOT guinea pigs, and should not be treated as such. That said, I support making the vaccine readily available to those who wish to take it, and I support people making the choice with their doctors whether to receive the vaccine or not.
I am also fiercely opposed to the unconstitutional Orwellian contact tracing, involving forcibly quarantining New Yorkers in “Isolation Facilities” …even those who have no symptoms. Low-income housing, NYCHA Housing, homeless shelters, group homes, and nursing homes will be the first to be visited by contact tracers, effectively instituting medical martial law. If your home has only 1 bathroom anyone thought to be infected with the coronavirus may be removed from the home – including a child.
The Democratic Party has somehow transformed into the Bill Gates/Corporatist Party.
Manhattan’s District 27: I believe in our constitution, I believe in freedom, and I believe in representing the people, not corporations. I’m seeking your support and want to hear from you and what YOU care about. Your concerns and goals will guide my decision-making now and when I am elected.
We need honest leaders who will fight this invisible enemy that has upended our way of life. Our safety is compromised and our freedoms are under attack. We need to fight against both of these enemies. My campaign is a grassroots effort supported by fearless and bold New Yorkers who are standing up and demanding change. Our state is in crisis. We need caring, dedicated leaders who will fight for “We, the people.” My name is Elizabeth Glass, and I will fight for you.
Remember: we are stronger together, and every one of us is essential.
I’m Elizabeth Glass, and I approve this message.
Vote Brad Hoylman OUT!

May 27, 2020 – Liz Glass is running against New York State Senator Brad Hoylman in the Democratic primary in Senate District 27 (Manhattan) on June 23, 2020. The Village Sun has just published a hit-piece on Glass calling her an “anti-vaxxer.”
Here’s a response from Glass to The Village Sun:
“I am not an anti-vaxxer; I am pro-choice on all medical procedures. My opponent Brad Hoylman supports forcing New Yorkers to take the COVID-19 vaccine. This fast-tracked, liability-free product will forego standard safety studies. That said, if New Yorkers want to take the vaccine, I support their choice to do so. My campaign platform is not limited to medical freedom. However, given mandatory vaccines for all New Yorkers are coming – and not just for COVID-19 – this issue has created enormous support for my campaign. New Yorkers don’t want experimental medical procedures forced on them. They want the truth; they want choice.” – Liz Glass
The Sun’s hit-piece was one-sided and contained minimal research or facts. It even got Glass’s position on bail reform incorrect. The Sun reported Glass “fears bail reform” when her platform says she wants to enact “intelligent bail reform.” Despite these smears and inaccuracies the comments at the end of the report were quite enlightening. Here are a few of them:
Erin Knight posted the following comment:
Hoylman is sponsoring a bill that will kick kids out of school if the don’t get HPV shots, even though HPV has absolutely nothing to do with school. He promotes discrimination against medically fragile and vaccine-injured children…
Anthony Donovan posted the following comment:
Brad could build some bridges by at least hearing a number who are on the fence about mandatory vaccinations in a land where science and medicine are deeply imbedded in profitteering. So, we need to at least let people know that you’ll keep an eye on that Brad. We know of those around the world working on a safe, tested vaccine are willing to offer it freely to the world, as Jonas Salk did with Polio. But not our big pharma… they are rushing to get there first patent and make a huge profit…. and control it. That’s wrong in my eyes.“
Steph posted the following comment:
She’s not telling anyone what to do with their bodies. This article is not accurate as most media is owned by corporations to make sure they spin information. I would rather be free to make Medical Decisions than have someone tell me I have no choice. A vote for Brad is a vote for LOSS of freedom. He already has bills into state for a vaccine that has not been created for use yet. Scary right???? Also she is NOT a one issue challenger…
Chris posted the following comment:
This is a very misleading headline. Liz Glass is pro informed consent, pro constitutional rights, pro choice, pro LGBT, and for medical freedom. I like that shes a teacher and a champion for students & adults with disabilities. She will advocate for children’s education. I would listen to her with concern to bill gates restructuring the NY public school system.
Concerned New Yorker posted the following comment:
Very misleading article. Pro informed consent, pro choice. For LGTB equality and rights. Advocate for the disabled, who for too long and too often have been forgotten and dismissed. A mother, a parent an advocate. Someone who will not put their political career in front of their constituents’ needs and concerns. Someone who will stand up to Cuomo and the corruption in Albany. Those are just some of the things that come to mind. Change needs to happen, Brad Hoylman knows his time is up. He has given up all his legislative power to a corrupt Governor with his vote of S7919 and ran home. Vote him out, meet Elizabeth Glass, speak to her and vote him out. Get your voice back in Albany!
Dinne Gill posted the following comment:
You need to do more research on both Glass and Hoylman. Glass is for medical freedom, that means choice between parents, patient and doctor. Hoylman wants to mandate HPV vaccine to all young school children stealing parental rights. Gardasil is a high risk vaccine with many adverse effects and death. No shot, no school. HPV is Not contagious in a school setting why should young children be mandated to get the jab? Read up on Hoylman’s ties with Merck pharmaceuticals. Read Merck’s rap sheet. Follow the $$$. Not only parents but School districts oppose The HPV mandates along with many politicians…
Leila A posted the following comment:
I 100% support Liz and her fight for medical freedom and choice. She is awesome and we all need to vote for her. (Thank you Liz for standing up for the people!!!!)
…and that is only a sample of the comments.
If you are a registered Democrat living in Senate District 27 in Manhattan, this includes Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Hell’s Kitchen, Time Square, Upper West Side, Midtown East, Stuyvesant Town, East Village and the Lower East Side, please vote for Liz Glass on June 23rd!
