Mayor Eric Adams today called for an immediate infusion of funds for New York’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program from the United States Treasury Department. He also announced new measures to bolster tenant protections and inform tenants of their rights with significant outreach efforts.

“The federal government has the resources, and now it is time for them to take action with an immediate infusion of funds for the Emergency Rental Assistance Program,” said Mayor Eric Adams. “New York has gotten the very short end of the stick, and I am joining Senator Schumer and Governor Hochul in demanding that change. In addition, I am encouraging everyone to take advantage of all the resources available to you, know your rights, and protect yourself against eviction.”

“The CoViD-19 pandemic created a housing crisis leaving thousands of New Yorkers concerned about being evicted from their homes. With the state-wide eviction moratorium set to end this Saturday, we are making a push to improve access to free tenant support for all New Yorkers, regardless of lease or immigration status,” said Sheena Wright, Deputy Mayor for Strategic Initiatives. “Our Public Engagement Unit will fulfill the Mayor’s promise of improving access to services and support by meeting tenants at their doors, on their phones, and in their communities to connect them to critical City services and help those facing eviction get access to free legal support.”

Mayor Adams outlined the following steps to support tenants:

Editorial

You should know that a Monmouth National Poll shows that 80% of the U.S. population favor voter ID laws and that 70% favor voting in person. It is important that you know that “The for the People Act 2021” known as the (HR1) legislative bill passed in the House of Representatives. All the Democrats voted in favor of it, except one. You should also know that HR1 would do away with all voter ID law requirements, among other drastic changes to our nation’s voting process.

Too often we hear a lot about how to require voters to present an ID card at their polling site is a form of voter suppression. Therefore, requiring a voter ID is somehow racist, because it is geared toward preventing people of color from voting.

Frankly this argument does not hold water. First, because it implies that people of color do not possess ID cards, and as result cannot exercise their right to vote. Therefore, a law that requires the voter to present an ID is racist. To hear this argument, you would think that people of color are living under a rock.

I have often wondered how this is possible. How are voter ID laws racist? Upon analyzing this issue, I found that their argument is in fact quite racist for the following reasons. First it implies that people of color are either too lazy, or too ignorant to acquire an ID card. That we as people of color lack the ability to get something as simple as an ID card or cannot even follow voter instructions.

Then I asked myself if everyone is required to show and ID card when boarding a plane, or when cashing a check, or when applying for a bank loan, or when driving a car, or when opening a bank account, or when entering a government building, or when registering at a college, or going into a hospital or clinic, or even to enter a restaurant to have a decent meal we are required to show an ID, that proves we have been vaccinated, otherwise…

The United States Supreme Court granted the petitioners’ request to stay the Biden Administration’s CoViD-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) during the pendency of the 6th Circuit case.

Holding that OSHA lacked the statutory authority to implement the ETS, the Court stated, “the Act empowers the Secretary to set workplace safety standards, not broad public health measures.”

Further, the Court held:

“The question before us is not how to respond to the pandemic, but who holds the power to do so. The answer is clear: Under the law as it stands today, that power rests with the States and Congress, not OSHA. In saying this much, we do not impugn the intentions behind the agency’s mandate. Instead, we only discharge our duty to enforce the law’s demands when it comes to the question who may govern the lives of 84 million Americans.”

The majority concluded that the government was not likely to prevail on its argument that OSHA possesses the authority to issue the vaccination mandate.

America First Policy Institute’s (AFPI) Constitutional Litigation Partnership (CLP) filed a lawsuit in November on behalf of two small businesses in North Dakota challenging the constitutionality of the Biden Administration’s OSHA ETS. When the 6th Circuit lifted the stay of the OSHA ETS, AFPI filed a Response in Support of Emergency Application for Writ of Stay with the United States Supreme Court.

Today’s ruling is a huge victory for the preservation of American liberty.

The Green Bay Packers may be well on their way to Super Bowl LVI under the dynamic leadership of their veteran quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers has guided Green Bay through these 18 weeks of football to a stellar 13-4 record, tied for the best record in the league, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It seems hard to believe that back in late August, there were doubts that Rodgers would play for Green Bay, the only team he has played for.

Though that clearly did not turn out to be true, it has been a whirlwind of a season for the Green Bay Packers, who have been playing some of the best football they have played in a long time.

The Packers are entering the playoffs with the top seed in the NFC, and high hopes for a Super Bowl appearance, and the NFL stats are in their favor.

They have not appeared in a Super Bowl in over ten years, since February of 2011, when they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to bring home the Lombardi trophy.

How He’s Been Playing

Aaron Rodgers is probably the biggest contender for the MVP award this season. How could he not be? Rodgers played one of the best seasons of his career, throwing for just over 4,000 passing yards and 37 TDs, ending the regular season with a 111.9 passer rating.
