PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, WHITE PLAINS, NY, and YONKERS, NY — August 17, 2020 — John Bailey, White Plains CitizeNetReporter Publisher/Editor opens the broadcast day with respect to the following concerns:
1) Westchester County Board of Legislators issued a Task Force Report on their voting reform recommendations. The initiative was spearheaded by Westchester County Board Chairman Ben Boykin as a corollary to the Westchester County Board of Elections, the ruling body, who is tasked to oversee a smooth election operation in the November 3rd Election as opposed to the failed July 23rd Primary.
- We learn if the White Plains Common Council has convinced Mayor Tom Roach to toughen the regulations that would govern the installation of 5G wireless towers and their intrusion with residents.
- Dr. Anthony Fauci informed readers of the Huffington Post that the most serious issue with respect to Covid-19 preventive recommendations is that best practices are too often ignored and is thereby the most serious threat to public health. Further, he espouses that schools not br re-opened. We learn that his recommendations have caused his family to receive death threats over the issue.
- New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo advised that COVID-19 hospitalizations remained low at 554, a slight drop from the previous day. 85,455 tests were reported on Saturday with 727 positive equivalent to 0.85 percent (0.85%), yet 4 New Yorkers succumbed to the virus.
- We learn that NYC museums and cultural institutions can reopen as of Monday, August 24th, likewise for bowling alleys, and we learn that that the State has traced clusters to farms in rural counties.
- We learn that New York City museums and cultural institutions can reopen starting Monday, August 24. Museums, aquariums, and other low-risk indoor arts and cultural institutions can open at 25% capacity.
- Bowling alleys throughout New York will be allowed to reopen starting Monday with strict safety protocols. Bowling alleys will be able to operate at a 50 percent occupancy, and face coverings and social distancing will be required at all times. Every other lane must be closed and patrons need to stay with the party at their assigned lane.
- Additionally, thorough cleaning and disinfection mobile testing teams will be dispatched to to farms in rural counties across New York. The State’s contact tracing program has identified several new clusters at farms linked to seasonal workers.

Michael Edelman, Esq., International / National Political Analyst / Pundit speaks to many national and international issues and ramifications as the November 3rd Presidential Election about 10 weeks from now.
- Democrat Party Designee Joe Biden’s chose Kamala Harris as his Vice-Presidential running mate. What defines her? How will she bolster the prospects for a Democratic Party win and will their coattails carry Congressional and Senate positions?
- Should Joe Biden be victorious, the talk is that he will not seek a second term. Will a vote for Biden/Harris become a Harris incumbent for President and a Vice-President running mate?
- Will President Trump be considered to the Nobel Peace Prize for brokering a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel? Will there be other nations looming not far behind? What is the rationale for this agreement coming to pass?
- President Trump has suggested it would be prudent to postpone the November 3, 2020 Presidential Election suggesting the process is not secure. Is he correct?
- Arizona teachers are staging a sickout so as not to engage in teaching as schools are requested to open. There is huge concern that the schools will become the source of new COVID-19 cases. Fauci concurs. Must schools re-open for the sake of students as well as parents being able to attend to their employment?
- We ask who is funding BLM, Antifa? And ask what is the basis for a rise in anti-Semitism and anti-Israel sentiment from an ever growing larger segment of elected officials. Listen from 10:30-11am
