Earlier this week, we revealed how the state of New York is leading the way for imposing draconian lockdowns on its citizens, supposedly protect residents from the coronavirus. The state’s Democrat governor Andrew Cuomo went on to made a disturbing statement, ringing of classic fascism:
“There are only two fundamental truths in this situation: it’s individual discipline and it’s government enforcement. Period. End of sentence.”
Under the cover of a COVID crisis, Cuomo’s rule in New York has become increasingly authoritarian, further punctuated this week with the announcement by a chief administrative judge that all jury trials and grand juries will be shutdown, ‘due to a surge in COVID cases.’
Another vague decree, and with no real specifics given as to the scientific provenance of the claims that a ‘pandemic’ is in fact raging through the state. It is believed that state officials are relying solely on non-diagnostic PCR tests to falsely claim that more residents have active COVID-19 infections than actually do.

ALBANY — New York’s chief administrative judge, Lawrence K. Marks, on Friday issued an order suspending any new jury trials across the state as COVID-19 has surged in many communities.
The notification by Marks, which was sent to judges in an email and goes into effect next week, will also suspend new grand juries from impaneling.
But trials that are underway, and grand juries already impaneled, may continue, Marks said.
The court shutdown comes a week after criminal jury trials had resumed in New York City. One of those trials was adjourned when several employees at a Bronx courthouse tested positive for COVID-19.
There are an untold number of people sitting in jails awaiting trial, according to criminal defense attorneys.
Marks and New York’s chief judge, Janet DiFiore, had previously shut down the state’s court system on March 13 as COVID-19 cases began exploding.
The exceptions during the prior shutdown were civil jury trials in which attorneys had already delivered opening statements and certain criminal trials.
In conjunction with the earlier court shutdown, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo signed an order suspending many of the speedy trial provisions that require, for instance, a defendant in custody to be released unless they are indicted within 45 days.
Many criminal matters, including arraignments and pre-trial detention hearings, have been conducted using online video platforms.
