Andrew Cuomo’s Insane Travel Ban is Hurting a Mississippi Baseball Team

On April 5, 2016, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Democrat, prohibited all non-essential travel to the state of Mississippi. Coincidentally, this seemingly discriminatory action against the Magnolia State occurred on the same day Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant, Republican, signed House Bill 1523, also referred to as the “Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act” and the “religious freedom” bill. The law went into effect on October 10, 2017.

Now, Cuomo’s excessively unnecessary travel ban is erasing three home games off University of Southern Mississippi’s baseball team’s schedule.

The Stony Brook Seawolves were supposed to battle the USM Golden Eagles from February 23-25, 2017 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Stony Brook is a public university located on Long Island in New York. Cuomo’s ban on non-essential travel will prevent Stony Brook’s baseball team from making the trip.

According to TheBlaze, USM’s cancelled home games will force the Golden Eagles to travel to Nacogdoches, Texas in order to play in a tournament at Stephen F. Austin State University. Lamenting the needless situation, USM head baseball coach Scott Berry said, “I just hate losing the three home games…I’m sure it’s going to cost us for sure. That’s three gates and everything that goes into a game day in terms of revenue.”

The Seawolves and Golden Eagles were originally scheduled to meet for a three-game series in 2014. However, inclement weather in the Northeast kept the Seawolves from traveling to Hattiesburg, Mississippi at the time. As a result, the two baseball teams decided to play in 2018. Brian Miller, Stony Brook’s associate athletic director of communications, relayed that the university’s head baseball coach, Matt Senk, and athletic director, Shawn Heilbron, didn’t know Cuomo’s travel ban included Mississippi. They were only aware of travel restrictions to the state of North Carolina.

New York’s liberal governor also signed an executive order banning all non-essential travel to North Carolina in 2016 due to that state’s transgender bathroom law. North Carolina’s law prohibited people from using public restrooms reserved for members of the opposite sex.

“Southern Miss obviously wasn’t pleased that we were trying to get out of it,” Miller went on to say.

When they found out about the travel ban to Mississippi, Stony Brook considered traveling to Slidell, Louisiana. They pondered staying in Louisiana while traveling back and forth to Hattiesburg, Mississippi for the three games. The school ultimately decided the hassle wouldn’t be worthwhile.

Berry replied, “Both times that we tried to play them unfortunately circumstances intervened…I’m just thankful that Stephen F. Austin is letting us in their tournament.”

Tim Wildmon, President of the American Family Association, feels the Seawolves are sacrificing the opportunity to play February baseball in a warm weather climate against a good team. When referring to House Bill 1523, Wildmon exclaimed, “Mississippi’s law protects people from discrimination who, because of their faith, believe marriage is the union of one man and one woman, that sex should be reserved for marriage, and that one’s gender is set at birth.”

He asserted that the bill was created to protect Christians from government oppression. Liberal and pro-LGBT activists have vigorously opposed the “religious freedom” bill. Their actions include filing an appeal to the United States Supreme Court.

The bill’s opponents have cited that it will lead to widespread discrimination against gays and lesbians who reside in Mississippi. In an effort to verify their claims, Wildmon said, “I asked the governor’s office how many complaints have been filed in court that would signify this mass discrimination against LGBT.”

The answer Wildmon received was a resounding “zero.”

Cuomo is a divorcee who cohabitates with girlfriend Sandra Lee, a television chef and author. The Democratic governor is rumored to be eying a run for president in 2020. The State of State address Cuomo delivered on January 3, 2018 added fire to the rumor mill. In his 92-minute speech, the liberal governor worked overly had to appeal to the more progressive members of the Democratic Party. He proposed leftist initiatives including electoral reforms and eradicating bail for nonviolent criminals. Besides taking aim at President Trump, Cuomo said, “Progressive leaders must be dreamers and doers, visionaries and achievers.”

Our Forefathers stepped up, had they not, we wouldn’t be “We The People” We must do as our Forefathers did, it is necessary when threatened, regardless of the date!

  4. I’m Calling On Every Tax Payer, To Boycott Paying Taxes, Until Our Government Is Communist Free! They can’t survive without our Tax-Dollars! We will not be ignored!

  7. The NWO, is about overpopulation! The earth is overpopulated and the self-described, elite want to cut us down to a level, and certain, character to be able to manipulate! None of this will take place unless we leave ourselves vulnerable by allowing them to disarm us! These mass shootings are done by the CIA, and or, the FBI, maybe not directly, but by others they choose that can easily be brainwashed to do as they say! All for one reason, and that is to make the naive, citizens to join them in thinking guns are the problem! Those naive citizens will find out the hard way, if they allow gun control/confiscation to happen! As soon as Republicans give up the majority, the left will impeach President Trump, and gun confiscation will begin, it’s already happening in California! Who told California that they were the catalyst for their ideals to spread across America? The communists are in charge in California, New York, Wisconsin, Oregon, Washington, Virginia, and spreading! Do you stupid, gullible, brain-weak, liberals really want to be like a communist-ruled Countries? Obviously, you brain-weak, liberals know nothing about communist rule! They have dictators who stay in power by murdering their opponents! You can’t vote them out! The can choose to starve you, work you round the clock, 24/7, and when you can’t they kill you! They tell you how many children you can have, and if you go past that number, they murder that child! They tell you who to worship, or not at all. They run everything! The news media, the tv programs, the medical profession, the attorneys, social services! You become an army of ants working for the dictator, like it or not! They set your pay scale! You stupid idiots are committing suicide by voting Democrat! Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, Debbie Wasserman Shultz, Maxine Waters, Kamala Harris, all of them live in mansions, by keeping you in poverty! Wake up! Every politician in DC, is super wealthy, who makes them rich? Working class taxpayers! You are welcoming communist rule by voting for these people! They come to your town once every two years, but they don’t reside anywhere near you, because you can’t afford to live near them! Wake-up! Why do you think they want open borders? It’s not because they care about you, or illegals, they want their votes! They want chaos, they want whatever the Global elitists say! If they take down borders, they actually round everybody up! Facebook isn’t the greatest thing since sliced bread, Facebook is a giant, world-wide tracking system! The young college student bored with school, The one that made Facebook work, is the grandson of a global elitist, he got the startup money from a CIA bank, Mark Zuckerberg isn’t his real name! He is not German, he’s a Jew! Wake-Up!!

  8. Over population, the NWO, is a bunch of billionaires who meet in Switzerland every year to drink, use drugs, attend orgies, perform sexual acts with animals, decide who lives or dies, and plan the course of depopulation! They are the most evil humans on earth! They place no value on human lives, except their own! The DNC is a criminal organization that skips to the beat of their drums! The DNC is every bit as evil as the Bilderbergs! They want DACA, you think it’s because of children, you think the DNC wants to help children, you poor stupid people couldn’t be more gullible! If the DNC, cared about children, their legislation wouldn’t result in the 60,000 brutal murders of infants, every year! The problem in America is the people who don’t believe in God, are the elitists! How many of you DNC voters attend church? I’ll tell you, not as many as did in the good ol days back home! People who vote DNC are pushing God out of a Country whose Forefathers put God First! You say God is too powerful to be pushed out! God is way more powerful that you’ve ever imagined, it’s true! However, God doesn’t demand that everyone worship him! There are the righteous, and the unjust, HE, gave us a choice so that we either choose HIM, or satan! God gives us the chance to prove or disprove our faith in him! Faith in God, is all HE asks! Power, is faith in something unseen, there is nothing more powerful than faith, they can kill you, but not your faith, which flourishes your soul. Gods wisdom is infinite! You take Einstein, Socrates, Benjamin Franklin, Newton, Murphy, Hawkings, whomever ,and put them in a room together, and give them a 100 yrs. to live, and challenge them to manufacture a human being, and it wouldn’t be done! What do these minds do? They not all, but most say there is no God! Hawkings states that God was a myth, for people afraid of dying, when in fact, Hawkings is more than anyone, a miracle of God! People with Lou Gereighs disease don’t live more than five years after diagnosis! I’m sure that Hawkings gives himself credit for living so long with such a debilitating disease, but not everyone has a full time medical staff doing the things necessary to keep him alive! If a mere poor man had not had the assistance Hawkings has had, they wouldn’t survive, yet God, has for some reason, decided to keep a helpless invalid living! Why? When people without faith in God, need a leaning post, it’s science! Science can’t explain Hawkings longevity but I’m not sure if he even understands this?
