New York Judge Reinstates Democratic Presidential Primary, Following Cuomo’s Attempt to Shelve It

New York will get to vote after all.

A federal judge ruled that New York must reinstate Bernie Sanders and the other Democratic presidential candidates to the ballot, placing the state’s primary election back into effect after Governor Andrew Cuomo had attempted to shut it down.

Judge Analisa Torres of the Southern District of New York made the ruling on Tuesday. Cuomo had initially postponed the presidential primary election(while maintaining other primary elections for state and local offices) from April to June 23rd, citing the coronavirus epidemic. He later proceeded to strip every Democratic presidential candidate from the ballot, essentially cancelling the election on grounds of public safety.

Even though Joe Biden has become the presumptive Democratic nominee, previous candidates slammed the decision to cancel the primary as an affront to the democratic voting rights of New York residents. UBI advocate and former Democratic Presidential candidate Andrew Yang had filed the lawsuit against Cuomo in federal court, leading to the primary’s reinstatement.

The outright cancellation of a primary election with millions of potential voters was nearly unprecedented, and Cuomo’s explanation of it being acceptable because the other Democrats had dropped out of the race proved unsatisfying.

Perhaps the New York governor, whose national profile has been illuminated from his daily coronavirus press briefings, had been seeking to throw a bone to Biden’s team with the hopes that he would be selected as the party elder’s Vice Presidential nominee. But Biden appears committed to picking a running mate who is a woman.

‘Team Mitch’ Alumnus Nick Sandmann Fires Controversial Defamation Attorney Lin Wood

Sandmann is accusing Wood of making false statements about himself.

Conservative activist Nicholas Sandmann, the former Covington Catholic student turned cheerleader for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has dropped high-profile defamation attorney Lin Wood after Wood made public statements about Sandmann on the Telegram social media platform.

“No client had abandoned me but I expect Nicholas Sandmann may do so as he be (sic) feeling the pressure from members of Mitch McConnell’s team on which Nicholas worked this election cycle,” Wood wrote in the Telegram post.

Wood’s prediction would soon come to pass as Sandmann made the public announcement on Monday that he is dropping Wood as his attorney.

Even though Wood says he has been abandoned by friends, family, and now one of his most high-profile clients, he intends to continue fighting against corruption no matter what the cost.

“Until and unless they silence me by imprisonments or death, I will not stop fighting for We the People, for honest elections, for freedom, and for the thousands of little children who are being abused, molested, and sacrificed for the demonic pleasures of very evil people in this world – including leaders in our government,” Wood wrote.

Sandmann posted Wood’s Telegram rant on Twitter as well:

Big League Politics has reported about the settlement that Wood helped Sandmann receive after he was slammed by the fake news media for smiling at a gin-soaked Indian after a Washington D.C. pro-life rally in 2019:

Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.

Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.

“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.

Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.

Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies.

While Sandmann may have been justified tossing Wood aside due to his radical and unhinged comments over the past several months, the proud Team Mitch alumnus seems to be building up his bona fides as a establishment Republican.
