‘We offer our sincerest condolences to our colleague’s family and friends’
‘I have a family’
Former Trump Chief Strategist Steve Bannon on Tuesday mentioned Joe Biden and the Democrat party’s obvious plan to skip over the State of the Union Address this year.
Biden will be the first president in decades to not give a SOTU speech.
We all know why.
Steve Bannon: Joe Biden hasn’t given a State of the Union because Joe Biden can’t stand up there and give a State of the Union. That’s what it’s all about. Also he won’t draw an audience but he can’t stand up there and do it. That’s why we’re delayed I think the first time since 1981, isn’t that right Raheem Kassam, that we delayed the State of the Union? Because IC chatter. Because domestic terrorists, uh, that would be you, audience, are trying to blow up the Capitol when he gives the State of the Union. That is nonsense… Wray says 55 out of 56 FBI offices are open with investigations. And 85 have been charged?

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will be stripped of his emergency powers in a new legislative deal between the state’s Assembly and state Senate.
New York Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner said the deal will do the following:
- “repeal the extraordinary powers granted to the Governor last year”
- “provide for an orderly transition through the end of the disaster period”
- “Limit any further modifications to directives to that which is necessary to reduce the spread or increase vaccinations”
- “Restore the right of counties and municipalities to issue executive orders without seeking state approval”
- “Require the Governor to provide online reporting on all executive orders, providing transparency for all”
My understanding is that as early as this Friday we will pass legislation that will:

NBC New York reported:
Legislators from New York’s Assembly and state Senate struck a deal Tuesday to strip Gov. Andrew Cuomo of his pandemic-linked emergency powers and return matters like lockdowns to local control.
The deal would reverse emergency powers granted to Cuomo exactly a year ago, in the early days of the COVID pandemic, that gave him free rein to order measures like quarantines.
“I think everyone understands where we were back in March and where we are now. We certainly see the need for a quick response but also want to move toward a system of increased oversight, and review. The public deserves to have checks and balances. Our proposal would create a system with increased input while at the same time ensuring New Yorkers continue to be protected,” Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins said in a statement.
The new legislation comes as both Democrats and Republicans are calling on Cuomo to resign after three women came forward and accused the New York Governor of sexual harassment.
The third accuser, 33-year-old Anna Ruch, said she was “uncomfortable and embarrassed” after Cuomo grabbed her face and kissed her at a 2019 wedding.
Anna Ruch’s allegation comes after two former New York state aides accused 63-year-old Cuomo of sexual harassment.
