Bill would give Andrew Cuomo power to detain people for suspected COVID-19

January 5, 2021

There is no doubt that Andrew Cuomo is loving his newly found COVID-19 emergency power and the glowing media coverage that comes with it and now the State legislature is set to hand him even more power. According to this story a bill has been introduced in New York which would allow Andrew Cuomo to lock people up if he thinks they pose a COVID-19 threat to the public. Here is more:

A bill introduced by a member of the New York State Assembly would amend the public health law, permitting the governor of the state to order the removal and/or detention of a person deemed to be a “suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease” who would “pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health.” The person in question then would be “detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor.”

A couple of scary things there besides the obvious affront to the Constitution, notice the terms “suspected” and “other appropriate facility?” You do not even have to have a confirmed case of COVID-19, Andrew Cuomo just has to say he thinks you do and he can have you locked up. And what is another “appropriate facility” to lock somebody up in over a medical issue if not a medical facility? Could it be a FEMA camp or something along those lines?

Here is some of the actual text of the bill in question:

The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows: Removal and detention of cases, contacts and carriers who are or may be a danger to public health; other orders. The provisions of this section shall be utilized in the event that the governor declares a state of health emergency due to an epidemic of any communicable disease. Upon determining by clear and convincing evidence that the health of others is or may be endangered by a case, contact or carrier, or  suspected case, contact or carrier of a contagious disease that, in the opinion of the governor, after consultation with the commissioner, may pose an imminent and significant threat to the public health resulting in severe morbidity or high mortality, the governor or his or her delegee, including, but not limited to the commissioner or the heads of local health departments, may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained.

Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises designated by the governor or his or her delegee …

Removal and detention, does that sound like America to you? And he will have the power to hold a person up to 60 days without a court order. This is insane and the people of New York had better wake up quickly and realize COVID-19 is turning into Andrew Cuomo’s Reichstag fire, and it will not end in New York if he is allowed to get away with this.

    This is too over the top frightening and too similar to the past. Yes, people in NY had better wake-up and revolt rather than just fleeing the state. Take a stand.

    No surprise here. The people of New York City would give Cuomo the power to line up suspected COVID criminals against the wall and make short work of them. New Yorkers (mostly in the five boroughs) are a stupid people as evidenced by their voting habits.

      You know, if Cuomo said we had to euthanize the people who have COVID I believe there would be New Yorkers defending him for it.

    This is the entry point for the new gulags. And to think great spirits and minds like Alexander Solzhenitzen fled HERE to seek refuge from the mind numbing oppressing of totalitarianism.

    Sorry to go off thread, but look at the Georgia senate runoff numbers. Same crooked pattern as in November. GOP comfy ahead until last 3% of votes counted. Suddenly, all votes go for the Dems.

    This time I’ve got screen caps of most of it, including different numbers coming from Fox, CNN and ABC. I’ve got 50 or 60 screen caps,starting last night and ending this AM, to go through. It’s probably going to be a day or so before I can present the info in any cohesive manner.

    If anyone wants the raw data, I can send it any time.

      P.S. Pundits have been talking of Stock Market meltdown if Dems win. DOW is up 1.73% so far today (8:30 AM Pacific) and the price of gold is dropping. Somebody got the fix in and Wall Street is happy. It’s all crazy. Go see for yourself.

      Reeducation camps as promised by the Weatherman Underground when they were finally rounded up. They finally got their dream of owning a major political party. Today’s activities in DC are the beginning of the reaction. When you kick a hornet’s nest you can expect a reaction. We are now seeing it.

        They have been provoking these people hoping to draw a reaction and they have finally succeeded, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened and they must be thrilled.

    Steven, this is true. But those on the left forget one simple truth. The folks they agitate are not like them. They are not white punks on dope. The woman shot to death (unarmed) was a 14 year veteran of the Air Force with 4 pumps to Afghanistan. Not your typical Smith College Nonbinary Etruscan Art History major. The folks who are backing Trump represent blue collar, small business America. In my neighborhood we don’t play video games to pass the time in winter. We shoot elk and deer at long range with high powered rifles. When you kick my kind of folks you might end up with a Tony Lama coming back a lot harder. The left is going to find out that fly over American is not to be trifled with.

      Very true! They forget that not everybody is like the people in the North East or on the coasts and that is something they could come to regret.

    Maybe GOD will just have to do a cleansing again like the Flood or Sodom.
    Bring the show to a close, since the stench has made its way to His nostrils.
    That would rid the DSwamp.

    I have sent this information to NYers asking them to contact their legislatures to not support this Nazism.
