PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL; WHITE PLAINS, NY; and YONKERS, NY — May 25, 2020 — John Bailey, White Plains CitizeNetReporter Publisher / Editor centers on the impact of COVID-19.
- Governor Cuomo advises the buildout for new gas pipeline has been shelved based on utilities informing that demand has dissipated, and that therefore no longer necessary. Was the initial assertion to build a pipeline a “want” or a “need”? Is there a procedure by which a rational basis can be deduced?
- NYS Sales Taxes are down 25% Westchester County Wide; White Plains down 20%. What do these numbers reveal?
- Does Westchester County continue to be a magnet for housing developments and commercial real estate investments, or has everything ground to a halt?
- Cuomo Cuomo advised that if there were a sufficient number of trained tracers that took the computer course this past weekend that Westchester County and the mud-Hudson region could open this Tuesday. Will that be likely?
Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst / Pundit will have much to over this Monday morning.
- Hertz Global Holdings Inc., the nation’s largest car-rental company, filed for bankruptcy protection Friday, saddled with approximately $19 billion in debt and nearly 700,000 cars idled by the affects of COVID-19. Is there a role by which the federal government should insinuate themselves or is filing for bankruptcy their only avenue? The crisis was exacerbated by COVID-19, but as car rentals declined over the past years has Hertz’s corporate managers refused to read the tea leaves and the writing on the wall? Will Hertz’s Chapter 11 proceedings in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware cost the taxpayer?
- The Hill reports that FBI Director Christopher Wray on Friday ordered an internal review into the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn amid rising GOP pressure on the FBI chief to examine the circumstances of the case. The bureau advised after the review, they will evaluate whether there was any misconduct or errors made by bureau officials during the course of their investigation, and to determine whether there are ways to improve FBI policies and procedures. Can POTUS eclipse the FBI and proceed with Flynn’s pardon despite the findings?
- Vice President Pence inn an interview with Breitbart which aired on Saturday the administration wants to provide a “safe harbor” to businesses that follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines so they can avoid “frivolous lawsuits” and reopen “with confidence.”
- Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin last Thursday said there is a “strong likelihood” that another coronavirus relief bill will be needed to resuscitate the economy as more states begin to reopen and the economy struggles to get its footing.
- Will big business have the capacity to be bailed out while they dismiss workers? Is a guarantee in place to protect worker’s employment security?
- COVID-19 has changed everything, especially how America works. Will the federal and/or state government retrain workers for the “new” economies, for rebuilding infrastructure? Will federal bailout of big business eclipse the needs of employing workers? If big business gets Federal funding should they be responsible to repay their loans to the government first. Can that be a requirement? If not, why not? If not, why should the Federal government bail out the likes of Hertz (filing for bankruptcy this weekend), Nieman Marcus (already filed), among others on the verge.
- Did Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden statement that “if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
