Bob Ehrlich: 6 of the Most Dangerous Ways Leftists Used COVID to Radically Change America:
Last week’s column attributed the country’s present leftward lurch to three primary events: the COVID-19 pandemic, the death of George Floyd and the Capitol Hill riot.
Each has created not-so-subtle opportunities for a cultural transformation. Indeed, Rahm Emanuel’s well-chronicled admonition (“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”) has never been more germane.
Think about it:
Nobody in good conscience could complain when schools were closed in March 2020.
The muddled messages from the public health community made it clear that America (and the world) had much to learn about the new virus.
But teachers unions exerted their considerable clout to keep public schools closed for most of the 2020-21 school year – even when it became clear school-aged children were at minimal risk; even when public health experts said it was safe to return to the classroom; even when the mental health toll on our kids became distressingly clear.
That these same unions delivered big-time for Joe Biden on Nov. 3 only further buttresses their political power and arrogance.

Cuomo admin. kept COVID tests from nursing homes as gov’s kin got them:
The Cuomo administration largely ignored a county official’s pleas for COVID-19 tests for nursing homes at the pandemic’s height last spring — even as the governor allegedly secured the then-scarce tests for his relatives, The Post has learned.
The slight is the latest stumble in Cuomo’s pandemic response, particularly with respect to nursing homes, where thousands of residents have died of confirmed or suspected cases of the coronavirus.
Troubled by reports of COVID-19 running roughshod through nursing homes early in the pandemic, Jack Wheeler, the manager of upstate Steuben County, requested in April 2020 that the state Department of Health provide enough tests for every resident and staff member of three facilities in his jurisdiction.
The DOH, however, only came through with enough supplies for one of the three facilities, Hornell Gardens, with the precious diagnostic tests then hard to find, Wheeler told The Post.
That lackluster response came, as The Albany Times-Union reported last week, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo allegedly pulled strings to secure tests for bigwigs connected to his administration, as well as relatives including his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, and their elderly mother, Matilda. --->READ MORE HERE
