Colin Schmitt, a Republican representing the 99th district of the New York State Assembly, told Breitbart News Saturday that Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (D-NY) sold out the people of Hudson Valley for political gain. Schmitt announced this past week that he will run against Maloney in the upcoming midterm elections. Host Matthew Boyle noted Maloney is currently is the chairman of the Democrats campaign arm, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). The DCCC is in charge of getting Democrats elected across the country, and Maloney as chair has been tasked by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to make this happen. Maloney is also trying to pad Pelosi’s majority in the midterms. Currently, the Democrats have a slim majority. Republicans need five seats to win back the House. Boyle also mentioned Maloney’s 18th Congressional District has one percent more registered Republicans than Democrats.

Now that spring is here, blue disposable masks can be seen everywhere, dotting the landscape like injured butterflies fallen from the sky. Such a sad reminder of a pandemic winter gone by. While jogging along my 5 km route, I counted 27 disposable masks, wondering why they weren’t properly disposed of in trashcans. This led me to research if they are harmful to the environment. It turns out they are not only harmful to the environment but to people as well. A few weeks ago, Health Canada issued a recall on disposable masks containing a material made of tiny particles that could pose a danger if inhaled. They are now warning everyone not to wear masks that consist of graphene because they could cause lung toxicity. Well that’s just great. How are we supposed to know whether our disposable masks contain graphene or not?
