Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Dangerous Woke Policies’ Favor Drug Addicts Over Elderly For COVID Vaccine; Court Strikes Cuomo's COVID-19 Orders on Churches, Synagogues, and other C-Virus Updates

Domenech: Gov. Cuomo’s ‘Dangerous Woke Policies’ Favor Drug Addicts Over Elderly For COVID Vaccine:
The Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech weighed in on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s recent decision to give drug addicts COVID-19 vaccine priority over senior citizens in his state.
On Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” Wednesday, Domenech said that ever since Cuomo received control of vaccine distribution, “he’s making already the same decisions we come to expect from him, full of bluster, full of stupidity, and without any kind of thought for the elderly citizens of New York state.” Absurd policies like the prioritization of drug addicts over the elderly, Domenech noted, are a perfect example of the “dangers of a centralized approach.”
“It’s one of those situations where you see the danger of how these woke policies actually have an impact on people,” Domenech said. “It’s not just op-eds and people writing stupid things in the New York Times, it’s now actually being implemented as policy and implemented, I believe, in a dangerous and backwards-looking way.” --->READ MORE HERE

'A Direct and Severe Violation': Court Strikes Cuomo's COVID-19 Orders on Churches, Synagogues:
On Monday, a panel of the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s (D-N.Y.) COVID-19 orders placing strict limits on houses of worship in hot spots. The 2nd Circuit panel agreed with the Supreme Court that Cuomo’s order likely does not satisfy the high standard of strict scrutiny and therefore violates the First Amendment.
“No public interest is served by maintaining an unconstitutional policy when constitutional alternatives are available to achieve the same goal,” Judge Michael Park wrote in the opinion. “The restrictions challenged here specially and disproportionately burden religious exercise, and thus ’strike at the very heart of the First Amendment’s guarantee of religious liberty.’ Such a direct and severe constitutional violation weighs heavily in favor of granting injunctive relief.”
In the 3-0 decision, the panel upheld the claims of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, the Orthodox Jewish group Agudath Israel of America, and two synagogues. The ruling enjoined Cuomo’s October 6 order capping attendance at “houses of worship.”
Cuomo capped attendance at either 10 people or 25 percent capacity, whichever is lesser, in “red” zones, and 25 people or 33 percent capacity in “orange” zones, even in buildings that seat hundreds. --->READ MORE HERE
