New York Governor Andrew Cuomo forcefully rejected the idea of a federal quarantine on the state of New York during an appearance on CNN Saturday, going so far as to describe such a proposal as a “federal declaration of war.”
New York is currently ground zero for the Chinese coronavirus in the United States. One third of total cases in the country are in the Empire State.
Cuomo described proposals for a federal quarantine on the state, in which travel would be restricted from New York to other states in the union, as “totally bizarre, counter-productive, anti-American, anti-social.”
The President ultimately ended up deciding against the idea of a quarantine targeting New York on Saturday, after initially considering it. President Trump ultimately decided that the Center for Disease Control would provide a travel advisory, considering the advanced nature of the epidemic in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
On the recommendation of the White House CoronaVirus Task Force, and upon consultation with the Governor’s of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, I have asked the @CDCgov to issue a strong Travel Advisory, to be administered by the Governors, in consultation with the….

It’s probably for the best that President Trump ultimately decided against a federal quarantine targeting New York and the tristate area. Such an unprecedented federal action would inflame relations between Americans in an hour of crisis where they must unite beyond regional boundaries to overcome the coronavirus epidemic as one nation.
Other states in the union have proven less willing to treat citizens of New York in an equitable manner as it is ravaged by the coronavirus. Rhode Island’s Governor- a Democrat, like Cuomo- enacted a draconian executive order that forces New Yorkers fleeing to the state to identify themselves to state law enforcement, and orders them to subject themselves to mandatory 14-day quarantines.
The people of the United States will ultimately defeat the coronavirus epidemic as a nation, even if some Democrat-run states want to single out New Yorkers for questionable medical scrutiny.
Half a Million Sign Petition Refusing Mandatory Coronavirus Vaccine
No mandatory vaccine.
More than half a million people have already signed a petition created by LifeSiteNews rejecting the notion of a mandatory coronavirus vaccine.
As of Saturday, the petition has created more than 532,000 online signatures. It was created in early May. The lion’s share of petition signers are from the United States, with tens of thousands in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
“The enormous response against a mandatory vaccination program for the coronavirus is truly global in nature,” said Gualberto Garcia Jones, LifeSite’s director of advocacy. “This is something people around the world are very concerned about, and which many reject.”
The petition breaks down the fundamental violation of essential liberties that a prospective mandatory vaccine effort would entail.
“Fear of a disease – which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases – must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.”
The petition cites concern with the credibility of globalist billionaire Bill Gates, who has poured an immense amount of resources into the development of an entirely hypothetical coronavirus vaccine.
“And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) – namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated – should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.”
There’s reason to be skeptical that a vaccine will even ever be developed for COVID-19. No vaccine exists for any of the other coronavirus that are known to infect humans, most notably the 2002 SARS epidemic, which gained considerable attention from the medical and scientific community. There’s no telling what side effects a potential new vaccine could cause.
The petition also cites the possible use of the stem cells from aborted fetuses in medical research, a practice in some scientific research projects that many Christians have found to be gravely immoral.
The health minister of the United Kingdom is refusing to rule out the notion of a mandatory vaccine.
