Comrade De Blasio: “We’re going to Have Sheriff’s Deputies go to the Home or Hotel of Every Single Traveler Coming in From the UK” (VIDEO)

The US Constitution no longer applies in New York City.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Wednesday morning announced new “tough rules” for UK travelers in response to reports of a new strain of Covid in the UK.

“Just cancel your travel plans. Stay local, stay safe. Practice distancing. Wear a mask,” De Blasio said.

But if you must travel, de Blasio has a whole new set of rules for you.

De Blasio’s new “tough rules” for UK travelers violates the 4th Amendment but who’s keeping track anymore?

“Folks coming in from the United Kingdom will receive a direct order to quarantine,” de Blasio said.

De Blasio said those travelers will receive a knock on the door to make sure they are following the quarantine rules.

“We’re going to have sheriff’s deputies go to the home or the hotel of every single traveler coming in from the UK,” he said.

Sun’s doping ban referred back to CAS after appeal

December 23, 2020

(Reuters) – Chinese swimmer Sun Yang has had his eight-year ban for doping violations referred back to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) after an appeal to a Swiss court, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) said in a statement late on Wednesday.

Sun was banned for eight years by CAS in February after it accepted an appeal from WADA against a decision by swimming body FINA to clear Sun of wrongdoing for his conduct during a 2018 test.

Sun appealed that decision and WADA said in Wednesday’s statement they had been informed the Swiss Federal Tribunal had upheld a challenge against the Chair of the CAS Panel but had not made any comment on the substance of the case.

“WADA will take steps to present its case robustly again when the matter returns to the CAS Panel, which will be chaired by a different president,” the statement said.

New Jersey Goes After New York For Taxing Remote Workers

New Jersey Goes After New York For Taxing Remote Workers

New Jersey has joined a legal battle to stop New York and other neighboring states from taxing residents who are telecommuting from home.

The suit, filed in October by New Hampshire, originally sought to bar Massachusetts from taxing people who stopped commuting to the state due to the pandemic. Since then, a dozen other states have filed a amicus curiae (‘friend-of-the-court’) briefs in an effort to convince the US Supreme Court to take up New Hampshire’s challenge, according to Bloomberg‘s Stacie Sherman.

On Dec. 22, New Jersey, Hawaii and Iowa filed their own briefs.

At stake for New Jersey is as much as $1.2 billion credited to its residents for income taxes paid to New York. Before the pandemic, more than 400,000 residents of New Jersey commuted to jobs in New York City. With many of these people now working remotely, their taxes are “more fairly attributed to New Jersey,” state Treasurer Elizabeth Maher Muoio said in a statement.

Seven states currently tax people where their office is, even if they work remotely. According to New York’s taxation website, any nonresident whose primary office is in the state but is telecommuting is still considered to be working in the state. Many states, including New Jersey, provide a tax credit to eliminate “double taxation” of a person’s income. –Bloomberg

“The resolution of this case thus has far-reaching implications as to which states will collect billions in revenue during the pandemic,” reads New Jersey’s brief.

With millions of Americans now working from home, the tax issue has taken central focus. According to a Gartner survey of company leaders, 80% plan to allow employees to work remotely at least part time after the pandemic, while 47% will allow employees to work from home full-time.

Another survey by PwC citing 669 CEOs, 78% say that remote work is here to stay for the long-term.

And now, states are fighting over taxes.
