  • Blame Cuomo for New York’s Medicaid crisis

    When it comes to New York’s latest Medicaid mess, the buck stops with Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Or rather, the buck should stop with him, if only he would enforce his own rules. Turns out the state’s massive government-run health plan for the poor and disabled, which covers one in three New Yorkers, has been running way over budget for months. And the Cuomo administration secretly finessed the situation by delaying $1.7 billion in payments from late March to early April, thereby shifting the red ink from the previous fiscal year into the current one — while doing nothing to slow...
  • New York Passes Law To Thwart Presidential Pardon Power

    The new Attorney General of New York State, aligned with Governor Andrew Cuomo and the Democratic majority in the state government, have passed a law allowing the prosecution of persons granted presidential pardons. As even NBC News was honest enough to admit, this was a measure cooked up specifically to “Resist” President Trump and blunt his ability to grant pardons to people associated with him. Of course, the devil is in the details as always. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a measure Wednesday that would allow the state to pursue charges against people who have received a presidential...

    The latest push by the Left-wing Communists in the Garbage Party to destabilize our cities and our country is to attack law enforcement on the local level. That means electing “progressives” to the position of mayor and prosecuting attorney while attempting to get similar people hired on as police chiefs. The effort is already paying dividends. Big cities from coast-to-coast are experiencing record disrespect for the law as well as the law enforcers — the men and women who occupy the thin blue line between civil society and total chaos.
  • Cuomo signs measure allowing New York to press charges despite presidential pardon

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) signed a measure Wednesday permitting New York state to press charges against those who have received presidential pardons. The measure was passed to prevent President Trump's ex-aides facing prison time or potential sentencing from receiving pardons and avoiding criminal punishment, NBC News reported. The network added that the legislation was a direct response to the president's consideration of giving his former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, a pardon. Manafort is serving in a federal prison after being convicted on bank fraud, tax evasion and conspiracy charges. The Manhattan District Attorney's Office has also indicted him on state...
  • NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo uses N-word during live radio interview

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is stirring up controversy by using the N-word during a live radio interview in New York. The New York Post reports Cuomo was on the air with Albany’s WAMC Public Radio Tuesday when he was asked about criticism of Columbus Day and efforts to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day. The governor brought up a recent New York Times op-ed about the treatment of Italian-Americans and spoke about racism. “They used an expression that southern Italians were called, I believe they were saying southern Italians, Sicilians — I’m half Sicilian — were called, quote-unquote and pardon my...
  • Cuomo Orders Utility To Pump Imaginary Natural Gas

    Now the Governor has come up with a unique plan to end the stalemate. Using an obscure state law regulating utility companies through the power of the Public Service Commission, Andrew Cuomo (who helped kill the pipeline project) is simply ordering the utility to hook up the gas lines anyway. But there isn’t enough natural gas in the existing pipeline to keep adding more service points. If they continue to hook up new customers, you’re going to see the backpressure in the lines start dropping during peak demand hours. If you look at the configuration of a typical gas furnace...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday said that “leftist” Democrats pressured House Speaker Nancy Pelosi into launching the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and warned that the inquiry will ultimately go "nowhere." "I think we now go to a very long and unproductive road," he said during a chat on political civility at Seton Hall Law School with former N.J. Gov Chris Christie, according to The New York Daily News. But a spokeswoman for Cuomo told the Daily News that the governor on Thursday was describing the divide before Trump’s Ukraine call was revealed. “Early calls for impeachment from...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo criticized “leftist” Democrats for pushing Congress into launching an impeachment inquiry of President Trump and predicted the probe would lead to government gridlock. The governor derided the “quote unquote inquiry” as the work of angry radicals who forced the hand of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to mount what he suggested would ultimately be an exercise in futility. “There is a heightened leftist component of the Democratic Party that she was feeling pressure from,” Cuomo said. The governor ticked off a list of legislative priorities that would likely languish until after the 2020 elections now that he said...

    Leave it to Gov. Cuomo to come up with a wacky Rube Goldberg-like scheme, even for something as small-time as license plates. Cuomo this week announced that the state is changing the style of its plates, and everyone with vehicles more than 10 years old will have to get one. Oh, it’ll cost you an extra $25 — plus $20 more to keep the same plate numbers. **SNIP** New Yorkers get to vote on one of five possible designs, four that show the Statue of Liberty and one featuring the new Tappan Zee — er, Gov. Mario M. Cuomo —...

    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo seems incredibly concerned with animal cruelty. But when it comes to newborn babies? Not so much. The man behind the infamous light display for infanticide has apparently decided that it’s mean to declaw cats. Dismembering tiny humans, on the other hand, gets a hearty standing ovation. For American states, it’s a first. When the far-left governor inked his name on a law that makes it a crime to surgically remove a cat’s claws, pro-lifers couldn’t help but see the irony. “Declawing is a cruel and painful procedure that can create physical and behavioral problems...

    ALBANY – Signaling the controversy surrounding the bill, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo chose a Manhattan office building – instead of a farm upstate or on Long Island – to sign a law Wednesday providing expansive new employment rights for farm workers. The bill has been hailed by unions and Democrats in the Legislature for giving farm workers certain rights that have been long provided to employees in other sectors of the economy. But critics say the measure ignores the realities of how farms operate in the different seasons and that more farms will be forced to close. The federal government...

    In a press conference held before the celebratory ticker-tape parade for the U.S. women's national team kicked off in lower Manhattan, New York governor Andrew Cuomo took a stand for equal pay, signing the new "Equal Pay for Equal Work" legislation into law on the streets of New York City. “There is no rationale that the women should not get paid what the men get paid,” Cuomo said, per assembled media. “...We say to the U.S. Soccer league and we say to FIFA, if you don’t pay women what you pay men, then you have no business in the state...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo has joined with a growing number of elected officials across the country in opposing the Trump administration’s reported plan to begin ICE raids early Sunday targeting illegal alien families. Cuomo called the plans “shameful and wholly unacceptable” in a statement issued Friday night. Mayor Bill de Blasio and the mayors of Chicago, Washington, DC and Los Angeles also condemned the threat and promised aide to affected families. “We will fight back at every turn to protect our immigrant families,” Cuomo promised. “New York will continue to be the beacon of inclusion and diversity that the nation and...

    A gas shortage threatens the Long Island region,” bleat six Long Island state senators, all Democrats, in a letter pleading for approval of a pipeline proposed to fix the problem — belatedly admitting that the policies they’ve long favored don’t work for their own constituents. This year, Sens. Todd Kaminsky, John Brooks, James Gaughran, Anna Kaplan, Monica Martinez and Kevin Thomas all voted for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Green New Deal law, whose very purpose is to further crimp energy supplies, and for a $100 million hike in taxes on energy. And, as Senate GOP leader John Flanagan (their fellow Long...

    Winter is coming, to borrow a phrase. Every New Yorker knows that during our long cold season, we rely on utility companies to supply us with power and heat. Life would get darn uncomfortable otherwise.What many may not know is that Governor Andrew Cuomo and his climate-obsessed administration has been working hard to deprive utilities of the fuel they need to keep our lights on and our central heating systems operational. There were even power cuts in New York City this summer because of Cuomo's irrational aversion to fossil fuels, and one downstate utility company stopped accepting new natural gas customers because of...
