Mayor Bill De Blasio to Shut Down New York City Just in Time for Election

As America continues to see the virus recede and the country recovers, Democrats are proving that we were right about them all along. They’re increasing government lockdowns even though the impact of the virus is much lower than it was throughout the summer. Nowhere is this more disturbing than in New York City.

NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio just announced his intention to institute a draconian lockdown in 11 zip codes in New York City. The locations are primarily in Queens and the Bronx. He said that it is because the virus is looking like it did in April, and all of these zip codes are showing infection rates above three percent. He didn’t say how long the lockdowns would be, but he did admit that they would affect roughly 500,000 people. These are lockdowns that close non-essential businesses and issue shelter-in-place orders.

In defense of the new shut down, Mayor De Blasio offered this rationalization: nothing.

De Blasio didn’t list infection thresholds that he was setting as a guideline. He didn’t offer a timeline. He didn’t even really say why he was doing it. The only citation he offered was a three-percent infection rate — which is lower than the national rate of 4.6 percent. He’s just shutting down New York City, proving what we all suspected. Now that Democrats in positions of power know they can do this, and get away with it, they’ll abuse it how and when they like.

Remember Bill De Blasio was running to be the next president of the United States just a few short months ago. He wanted to be put in charge of all of us. He loved the power and fame he gained so much by being NYC’s mayor, that he wanted to expand his powers to include all of the U.S.

Looking at the facts only, De Blasio’s new lockdowns don’t make sense. New York City has seen an uptick in infection rates, that much is true. That uptick started in late September, and daily new infections have risen around 50 percent from where they were in late August. That sounds pretty scary until you compare it to what New York has already seen.

At the peak in April, they were having more than 10,000 new infections every day. Right now, they’re at about a tenth of that, and New York never ran out of hospital beds in April.

It’s also important to understand that the new uptick has already plateaued. Anyone who can add can see that this is a small change and not the runaway infection rates we saw before. Runaway cases like that are literally impossible in New York because at least 20 percent of the population has tested as immune to the virus.

This isn’t about COVID-19. In fact, no one would be surprised if De Blasio was cooking the numbers just to get this lockdown.

Why is he so intent on locking down his citizens for a second time? This is about elections. The country is rebounding from the virus and the lockdowns much faster than anyone anticipated. The damage hasn’t been severe enough to guarantee a Joe Biden victory in the upcoming election. Most polls show Trump and Biden still within a couple points of each other. For context, Donald Trump was only 4 points behind Hillary the day before the 2016 election. So, De Blasio is going to shut down his city. He’s going to destroy more jobs and lives so that people believe they need his socialist programs. He’s going to try to terrify everyone out of voting in person so the Democrats can continue to push their bunk mail-in voting system.

He’s bringing unjustifiable, direct harm to his people to try and manipulate an election, and if Joe Biden wins next month he won’t be the only Democrat to do so.

    Its time for the US Supreme Court to step in and shut down these governors and mayors with their unlawful orders. MI governor is trying to side step the state Supreme Court order that her restrictions were unconstitutional. It’s time for recalls of these tirants.

    1. Rmi says

      Totally agree!! These demonic “servants” MUST be removed and neutralized!!!!

      1. Michael says

        The Democrats will stop at nothing to seize power, get out and vote in person.

        1. Ann Browning says

          It’s time for America to stand up and fight these demonrat mayors and governors who refuse to open up businesses and schools until after election!!! This is hurting Americans more than the virus!!! People have lost their jobs and businesses bc these mayors and governors have shut things down and let antifa and blm DESTROY businesses and murder people to make Trump look bad!!! If you think shutting down this close to elections is going to stop antifa and blm, think again!!! Harris has already stated that they are not going to stop even after election!!! Businesses and schools won’t open either if biden wins!!! WAKE UP PPL AND SEE THE TRUTH!!! THIS IS WHAT AMERICA WILL LOOK LIKE EVERYDAY IF BIDEN WINS!!!

        2. Wyatt Earp says

          Only thing that going to come out of this bullcrap is dead body! Don’t be surprised if they all are governor and MAYOR of DEMOCRAT CONTROL state!

        3. Lori Smith says

          Absolutely. We need a landslide, in person, entirely REPUBLICAN vote November 3. If it is safe enough to stand at the checkout in WallyWorld it is safe enough to go to the polls. I have told all my local friends that if anybody needs a ride, I will happily play “other UBER” and ensure they can go exercise their constitutional rights!

        4. Emily says

          This is all about Socialism, nothing more. The democrats are attempting to overthrow our government. They are now the Democratic Deep State Socialist Party. How does America want to live???…as a free and safe society or oppressed and eventually poverty-stricken as Venezuela? Wake up people as to exactly what this election is about. Also, we must remember the threats that have been made by the Democratic Party as to their after-election behavior. This is serious business.

    2. maria says

      he must resign. He is one of the worst disgusting and dangerous people. He wants to destroy NYC. Can people from NYC move out the city and vote from another county?

      1. Richard Bridenbaker says

        If the people that voted demarate back when Obumass was president and remember what his Obumass healthcare did to the people. Then they are dumber than a box of rocks. That problem should be a clue to what Biden and the demarates want for America. Remember, dimwit Biden was vic president at that time. And what did he do? Lied right along with Obumass. Therefore dems? Do you trust Biden and Harris? If you do, then you are dumber than a box of rocks. Also remember this. John F. Kennedy, he was a dem and was a great leader. Ever since him. No one has matched his leadership. I’m a Republican and I will always remember and respect his leadership. GOD BLESS JFK memorie.

  2. Rmi says

    WE THE PEOPLE cannot stand by and allow this to happen!!!

  3. baker says

    To begin with, I think the feds would step in with all of these phony ballots floating around everywhere. And second, these demorat governors and mayors are taking away the people’s right to vote and have a fair election. These abusive governors and mayors should be pulled from their JOBS since they are incapable of taking care of their people. We do not want dictators, we only voted them in as representatives to do our work.

    1. Emily says

      These power mongers will not be removed until the citizens of NYC go into their offices and physically remove them and lock them up somewhere until the election is over. In essence, isn’t that exactly what they are doing to us? Think about it.

  4. JoeyP says

    This won’t happen in FLORIDA. We’re not governed by a bunch of Left Wing RETARDS who need to be carted away with the REST of the “short bus” kids. SEND them to FEDERAL PRISON with the REST of the TRAITORS. One HOPEFUL Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    So, let’s say the affected zip codes are not all next to each other. You can conceivably cross the street from an affected zip code to a non-affected zip code to have dinner, get your hair done, etc. Makes PERFECT sense. But only in DeBlasio-ville. . . . .

  7. martin smith lll says

    This POS deblasio should be thrown in jail for destroying the once great city of New York!

  8. DC says

    It is crystal clear to anyone willing to open their eyes, that the Democrats will coordinate efforts throughout our country to try and control the election anyway they can. The Democrats know that they cannot being this Presidential Election fair and square. They will engage in any action that impedes the normal course of election process. We have already witnessed uncontrollable rioting, looting and destroying property of innocent citizens and beatings and killings of innocent citizens- ignored or condoned and at times actually supported and encouraged. All actions designed to hurt and or discredit the President. But, when we actually open our eyes and analyze the unrest in our country, we quickly can see that the violence has taken place in Democrat controlled cities across our nation. Violence that Democrats allowed to take place and violence the Democrats allowed to continue… with NO REGARD for the SAFETY and SECURITY of INNOCENT AMERICANS. The Democrats actions or actually lack of, are despicable, irresponsible, disheartening, and 100% self serving. The blinded, corrupted MSM, once a proud and respected Free Press, now only functions for the sole purpose of supporting the Democrats narrative. This couldn’t have been more clear than when we watched Schumer interviewed saying the Protests were ALL PEACEFUL, and the President and Republicans were exaggerating, and misleading Americans, all the while in the background of his interview BUILDINGS, CARS were in FIRE, CARS not on fire were DESTROYED, “peaceful” protesters are seen running through the streets smashing anything in their way, setting everything in their way on fire and the worst thing of all we witnessed “peaceful” protesters chasing down innocent people and throwing them to the ground, beating some of them- kicking them while on the ground, seriously injuring many and sadly even killing some. Then you add all the mail fraud, actual cases already uncovered in cities across the country, and rules being changed by the Democrats, again all self serving actions. Before we vote on November 3rd, we all must decide what we will base our decision on: FACTS, THE TRUTH, SAFETY & SECURITY, PATRIOTISM- HONORING AND UPHOLDING OUR CONSTITUTION, the SECOND AMENDMENT, etc., and REMAINING THE STRONGEST, CAPITALIST, FREE NATION ON EARTH… -OR- be forced to deal with unrest across our country, no wall, open borders, increased crime, violence, unrest, move towards Socialism and teeter on Communism, total government control over every aspect of our lives, total dependence on the government and HUGE tax increases to support the Radical Democrat administration. Once in Power and Control, the Democrats will work to destroy our Constitution- eliminate our Electoral College, eliminate voter ID, radical movement towards the new green deal- which would wipe out all the progress we’ve made under PRESIDENT TRUMP- becoming the world leader in oil production, fossil fuel, becoming ENERGY INDEPENDENT for the first time in our history…UNDER PRESIDENT TRUMP more Americans working than ever in our history, ALL AMERICANS- every race, every religion, fewer on food stamps, MANUFACTURING REBIRTH- Remember when President Trump made a campaign promise to BRING BACK GOOD PAYING MANUFACTURING JOBS – President OBAMA quickly came out and said they were empty, pipe dream promises, that those jobs were dead and gone and would never come back… WELL PRESIDENT TRUMP KEPT HIS PROMISE AND THOSE MANUFACTURING JOBS CAME BACK IN RECORD NUMBERS. FOR FOUR YEARS, President Trump worked hard FOR ALL AMERICANS, the whole time the Democrats did everything they could to hurt and discredit him- their actions designed to distract and confuse Americans, and with the help of the corrupted, 100% biased MSM, a once proud, once respected Free Press, now promote and support any and all stories true or false, fabricated untrue stories, distorted facts and twisted truth that benefits the Democrats narrative. COMPLETELY IGNORING AND OR BURYING THE REAL, PROVABLE OR ALREADY PROVEN FACTS, IGNORING THE TRUTH, turning their backs on REAL NEWS…through their actions, permanently killing the once respected once proud once sought after journalist jobs and the FREE PRESS… all actions by the Democrats SELF SERVING. They WANT, HAVE TO HAVE, POWER AND CONTROL OVER EVERY ASPECT OF OUR LIVES… regardless of the COST… regardless of the pain and suffering it will cause to America’s citizens all over our great nation. Come NOVEMBER 3RD the despicable actions perpetrated by the Democrats these last four years, from the Fake Russia Collusion charges- we all know now the phony Hillary-DNC paid for dossier used to obtain FISA warrants were gotten illegally, via lies and misrepresentations. That leading to corrupt, illegal spying on Presidential candidate Trump, his associates and campaign itself, by the opposition party -Democrats. Remember NIXON was impeached/forced to resign for “ATTEMPTING” wire taps/spying on Democrats… what if anything will happen to then PRESIDENT OBAMA, then VP BIDEN, who ACTUALLY COMMITTED THESE ACTS WHILE IN OFFICE AGAINST THE OPPOSING REPUBLICAN PARTY CANDIDATE AND HIS CAMPAIGN ASSOCIATES- a PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR HIGHEST OFFICE IN OUR COUNTRY…. What if anything will happen? Democrats continued their despicable actions the entire first term of President Trump… after the botched attempted frame up with the fake Russia Collusion, we had to deal with another democrat ploy- a Fabricated Quid Pro Quo charge after his phone call with Ukraine President.. the Democrats basically ATTEMPTING A MODERN DAY COUP.. backfires when President Trump releases the phone call transcript between President Trump and the Ukraine President- an action never done before.. catching the Democrats off guard and did they stop? NOPE, Democrat leader COMPULSIVE LIAR ADAM SCHIFF, CHANGES THE WORDS OF THE PHONE CALL TRANSCRIPT BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THE UKRAINE PRESIDENT AND THEN HAS THE NERVE TO READ HIS OWN VERSION TO CONGRESS AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE… BLATANTLY LYING TO CONGRESS AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE… With ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY AND ZERO CONSEQUENCES… if you or I lied to Congress, we would be is serious trouble. I could go on and on all day with one factual action by Democrats after another – all with the sole intent to discredit and hurt our President. With NO CONCERN for us. NO CONCERN for the CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS. NO CONCERN FOR THE NEGATIVE IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON OUR COUNTRY AND ON EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN. Before you VOTE, to really have the total picture, right now that picture is kept completely cloudy with the one sided, one hundred percent biased MSM support of the Democrats and their narrative… go on line and on The Frank Report- read the article written by:
    Peronneau Vandehey- Titled- The 125 ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP… you can Fact Check all of them easily and quickly.. I AM 100% CONFIDENT THAT MOST IF NOT ALL OF YOU WILL BE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED… I BELIEVE EVEN THE MOST CLOSED MINDED DEMOCRATS- the one’s that no matter what evidence you produce- even if their own parent or brother or sister swore to the validity of that fact, would still REFUSE to believe it was factual. For some ODD REASON, there a just some democrats who CHOOSE NOT TO ACCEPT PROVEN FACTS OR THE TRUTH. But having said that, I believe that after reading the 125 accomplishments article, even those impossible to convince democrats.. some will actual change their minds and be convinced of the truth and the facts and actually then even feel a little differently about all the ACCOMPLISHMENTS of PRESIDENT TRUMP, under the most stressful conditions. HERE’S SOMETHING TO PONDER: The entire time the Democrats were trying to impeach the President, he focused his time and energy on helping America and all Americans. Dealing with the Coronavirus tragedy/pandemic.. he took quick action shutting down travel with China a few days after the first confirmed case in the Inited States in late January.. immediately Joe Biden came out and called President Trump XENOPHOBIC, RACIST, ALARMIST AND FEAR MONGER.. Other Democrats followed suit … the corrupted, biased MSM and all the late night talk show hosts piled on… democrats like leader PELOSI in late March-early April was on tv telling people to come out and party with her in China Town- nothing to fear.. Mayor of NYC DeBlasio did the same, actually saying he would provide maps with how to get to certain Broadway Plays and famous Restaurants, etc…. they all tried to make the President look bad. When he blamed China, Biden and others quickly defended them… then when Coronavirus pandemic worsened and many Americans were dying, the Democrats then blamed the President… But the most important takeaway with this is that after the CORONAVIRUS hit America hard, the entire time it was infecting and killing Americans all over our country, THE DEMOCRATS CONTINUED THEIR RELENTLESS FAKE FABRICATED IMPEACHMENT OF THE PRESIDENT AND FOCUSED ZERO TIME AND ZERO EFFORT ON THE CORONAVIRUS.. Think about this for a minute… they blamed our President, BUT DID NOTHING TO HELP US FIGHT THE CORONAVIRUS… the Democrats more interested in trying to unseat our duly elected President- the entire time knowing they couldn’t, knowing their claims were false.. Just in case you’re not aware of this occurrence, you may find quite interesting.. when the REAL QUID PRO QUO committed by then VP BIDEN, where he is recounting it while in font of a small audience and a panel of folks interviewing him, Biden starts recalling when he THREATENED TO WITHHOLD A BILLION DOLLARS IN AID FROM UKRAINE IF THEY DIDN’T FIRE THE PROSECUTOR THAT WAS INVESTIGATING CORRUPTION IN A COMPANY CALLED BURISMA. THIS IS THE COMPANY THAT JOE’S SON HUNTER IS WORKING ON THEIR BOARD AND BEING PAID ROUGHLY $83,000 PER MONTH WITH ZERO EXPERIENCE AND ZERO KNOWLEDGE OF THE BUSINESS. BIDEN LAUGHS AS HE TELLS THE AUDIENCE THAT IT TOOK THEM JUST SIX HOURS AND..
    “SON IF A BITCH THEY FIRED THE PROSECUTOR!” and by the way, even for the democrats who will right away say this is all BS, it’s another conspiracy theory, garbage fake story…. HOLD ON… BIDEN’S ENTIRE CONVERSATION IN FRONT OF A PANEL OF INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL AUDIENCE…. IS ON VIDEO FOR ALL TO SEE AND HEAR! Just google it and sit down, watch and listen.. WASN’T IT JUST AMAZING… or COINCIDENCE, THAT JUST A FEW DAYS AFTER THE BIDEN REAL QUID PRO QUO TAPE CAME OUT the tape our corrupted fake msm BURIED the entire time Biden was in office… the DEMOCRATS CHARGED PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH THE VERY SAME OFFENSE… COMMON SENSE TELLS ME THAT THIS ACTION BY THE DEMOCRATS WAS MERELY AN ATTEMPTED COVERUP OF BIDEN’S REAL QUID PRO QUO- the Democrats Presidential Candidate.
    SO COME NOVEMBER 3RD I BELIEVE THE CHOICE IS AN EASY ONE WHEN YOU HAVE ALL THE FACTS. Let’s give PRESIDENT TRUMP the chance to rebuild what he helped build in his first term prior to the China Caused Coronavirus tragedy in our country – THE GREATEST ECONOMY THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.. he did it once.. he’ll do it again. SIMPLY VOTE, not on personality, like or dislike, BUT ON TRACK RECORD AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS… PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL MAKE AMERICA EVEN BETTER THIS TIME AROUND! ❤️🇺🇸🙏

      I could not have stated it better, thank you for saying this and I do hope this get hear LOUD and CLEAR because this needs to stop. I sure do hope people wake up before it’s too late. The damage that the Democrat’s have done and gotten away with needs to come to an end, and it will and soon thanks to President Trump. He is the only American President that was willing to stand up to the Deep State for government wrong doing but, how they are mistreating our children to satisfy their own need which is sick. And we all know what Biden is, its so obvious because he does it in public with everyone watching and people choose to look the other way. Looking the other way has come to an end and according to the Republican Party it has ended and ALL will be exposed. TRUMP 2020, just wish that instead of four more years we could get eight more years because it’ll take more than four years to clean up and drain the swamp and the Deep State.

    So what the affected communities should do is take a page from Trumps playbook and expand on it a bit. The commie governor and mayor won’t stop protests, but they do not want Hasidic Jews or Orthodox Jews to hold services or open their schools. So put up a few BLM and Antifa signs, have a few “volunteer protestors” start a few bonfires and hold your functions within the perimeter of the “peaceful protest”.

  10. Francisco Rodriguez says

    Watch he will shut down all the polling places and will say all votes will be by mail so his BLM cohorts will collect the votes

  11. Sherry says

    Why do the residents of New York put up with this guy? Just a ploy to allow mail-in voting only!

  12. Jeff says

    NYC is due for a delousing. Maybe time for a republican mayor.

  13. Eli says

    Recently about 80,000 medical, scientists and health experts signed a petition to stop the shut downs. They’ve stated that the shut downs are more dangerous, and people need to build up an immunity, as with any flu virus. They believe the shut downs do more damage both physically and mentally. They warn against the total shut down. Targeting areas of shudowns has left various groups and neighborhoods angry. A Jewish community thinks this brings bias targeting. Christians and churches have been targeted in many areas. It is wiser to do as we’ve always done with other pandemics, let the community and organization decide for themselves. If your school system has a high number of cases, we would close for a week. Our churches did the same. The physicians and health teams suggested restaurants and everything open up, but if you have health concerns for yourself, protect yourself as you have always done. We have had more deaths with smokers, or heart attacks.This is about America’s freedom of choice with responsibility, as we’ve always done.

    Power hungry? NO, HE’S A TRAITOR TO THIS COUNTRY AND NEEDS TO SWING FOR IT!

    It’s TRUE! Hilary Clinton is a TRAITOR and not only that…a CHILD SEX TRAFFICKER!
    SPREAD THE WORD, SHARE THE LINK! PUT THESE SICK PEOPLE BEHING BARS!
    TRUMP2020!

    These zip codes are being locked down because they are heavily populated with Orthodox and Hasidic Jews, who voted overwhelmingly for the President in 2016 and will do so again next month. Manhattan and Brooklyn, where the swells and hipsters went 90-10 for the Drunken Lesbian Witch and are just about as monolithically behind Joe and the Hoe this time, and they can swan about to restaurants, gay bars and marxist demonstrations. It is clear that gauleiter Wilhelm-deBlasio plans roundups after the election like Germany in the 1930s.

  16. A. Willis says

    I’ve tried to tell everybody that when DJT wins the election on 11/03/20, all hell will break loose. Miles E. Drake, I believe the mayor of NY is shutting down zip codes in the Bronx and Queens, I didn’t hear about Brooklyn. The Hasidic Jews can hold their own. They live separately from the Goyim anyway. It may be the high percentage of middle class Blacks and Puerto Ricans in the Bronx and Queens who support President Trump that will be affected by this. I have family in both the Bx and Qns who are staunch Republicans. By the way, they’re all in the process of leaving NY. I’m sure de Blasio is aware of this. He didn’t mention that he shut down the Dept. of Sanitation and garbage hasn’t be picked up in 6 weeks. Some places 2 stories high. I Take No Prisoners.
