New York City Mayor Eric Adams is fighting hard to force toddlers to wear masks. Bluntly stated, “you should keep your masks on your children” Adams said to reporters. Despite suggesting parents should mask their children, Adams’ mandate forces parents to mask their children.
The mask mandate for children in kindergarten through twelfth grade was lifted March 4 when New York governor Kathy Hochul lifted the statewide school mandate. Toddlers ages 2 to 5, however, remained in effect until a Staten Island judge blocked the mandate on Friday.
Adams declared he will appeal the decision. At a press conference, Adams said toddlers should still wear masks because there is not a Covid vaccine available to that age group yet.
Staten Island Supreme Court judge Ralph Porzio sided with the parents who brought the lawsuit against the preschooler mask mandate on March 10. Porzio ruled the mandate is “arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.” Therefore the requirement “void and unenforceable.”
Although Adams said he will “comply” with the order, he will continue to try to make parents’ rightful decisions for them. “Our plans were to take a week to assess the numbers before removing masks from two to four years old, but of course we’re going to comply with any ruling form the judge.”
“Our legal team is going to put in place an appeal and ask for a stay” he added.

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art
The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.
An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.
“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.
The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.
“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”
Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.
“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”
Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
