  • New York State Built Elon Musk a $1 Billion Factory. ‘It Was a Bad Deal.’

    07/08/2023 7:12:25 AM PDT · by Brilliant · 25 replies
    New York spent nearly $1 billion over the past decade on Elon Musk’s ambitious plan for what was supposed to be the largest solar-panel factory in the Western Hemisphere, one of the largest-ever public cash outlays of its kind. “You almost have to pinch yourself, right?” New York’s then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo said at a construction ceremony for the factory in 2015. “That this is too good to be true.” Eight years later, that looks like a pretty good assessment. New York state paid to build a quarter-mile-long facility with 1.2 million square feet of industrial space, which it now owns...

    Previously unseen text messages reveal how CNN lobbied the former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on behalf of its parent company Warner Bros. to reopen theaters during the COVID-19 pandemic. In a text sent to Andrew Cuomo in September 2020, CNN's chief marketing officer at the time, Allison Gollust, appeared to request the governor meet then-Warner Bros. CEO Ann Sarnoff. 'She's bummed you don't open theaters in NY, but perhaps you can hear her out,' Gollust said in the message, which was first reported on by Semafor.

    NY Post ^ | 4/15/2023 | Rich Calder
    Gov. Kathy Hochul reportedly authorized payment of nearly $2 million in taxpayer money for outside ghostwriters to help draft her State of the State speeches. Most of the money was paid to Deloitte Consulting and the Boston Consulting Group to help the state’s first female governor shape her vision, according to the New York Times. Hochul’s office shelled out $871,000 on three outside firms to help prepare this year’s speech – with Boston Consulting Group racking up the largest amount of $838,000 for what it listed in records as “SOS support.” Representatives for three of Hochul’s predecessors — fellow Democrats...

    When you’ve lost Andrew Cuomo, you really should take it as a sign that you’ve gone way too far. But there was the randy former New York governor on Saturday, as Democrat as Democrats can possibly be, charging that the ongoing prosecutions-in-search-of-a-crime directed against the America-First president were nothing less than a “cancer in our body politic.” Who does Andrew Cuomo think he is? Roger Stone? p>Cuomo knows a thing or two about prosecutions: he was attorney general of the state of New York from 2007 to 2010. On Saturday, he declared that the investigations of Trump were politically motivated,...
  • NY lawmakers aim to add more pain to Hochul’s hairshirt energy plans

    03/20/2023 10:58:27 AM PDT · by lowbridge · 23 replies ^ | March 19, 2023
    Gov. Kathy Hochul is moving full-steam-ahead with her predecessor Andrew Cuomo’s insane anti-carbon energy plan, yet the Legislature wants to make it worse. In their one-house budget bills this week, lawmakers took Hochul’s plan to cap greenhouse-gas output and require companies to buy “allowances” (indulgences?) for emissions and added new requirements of their own. That’d make it even harder for companies to meet standards, stay under the caps and/or pay for those allowances — more poison for the state’s business climate. The added costs will also bring higher prices for consumers: added, New York-only “inflation.” And where Hochul would allow...
  • Top Navy admiral begged Melissa DeRosa to fill Comfort Ship during COVID: emails

    A US Navy admiral begged the Cuomo administration to send patients to the nearly-empty hospital ship docked on the Hudson River during the height of the pandemic — but his pleas were met with politics and paranoia, The Post has learned. With city medical facilities packed with critically ill COVID patients in the spring of 2020 — and just days after the infamous edict by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to send COVID patients to nursing homes, which critics say resulted in thousands of deaths — the Trump administration sent the USNS Comfort, a 1,000-bed ship, to relieve hospitals of patients with...

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday questioned whether an ex-aide to former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was lawfully convicted on a bribery charge as it considered two cases that could place new limits on federal prosecutors in public corruption cases. The first case centered on whether Joseph Percoco’s conduct in taking a $35,000 payment from a real estate developer when managing Cuomo’s re-election campaign in 2014 is covered by a federal law that requires that “honest services” be provided to the public. Percoco says that because he was not working for the government at the time, he had...

    Andrew Cuomo and Kellyanne Conway seemed like mortal enemies back in the day ... which is why this story is so curious. The New York Post caught the former governor and former Trump honcho hitting up Il Postino Monday night in NYC's Upper East Side, with the ex-gov trailing KC as they left the Italian restaurant around 10 PM. They were all smiles on the way out, rocking business casual outfits. Cuomo and Conway were mum over the purpose of the dinner, but it's sure interesting ... Cuomo was effectively booted from office last year, and Kellyanne's former boss has...

    House Republican Conference chairwoman Elise Stefanik of New York vowed to haul disgraced former Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo in front of Congress over the nursing home deaths under his watch if the GOP retakes the House in the November midterm elections. Stefanik made the pledge on Monday while speaking in front of a Rensselaer County nursing home that refused to abide by Cuomo’s 2020 order, saying House Republicans "will not hesitate to follow the facts wherever they lead and really uncover the important data, the decision-making process and the absolute corruption." "When Republicans earn back the House, I...

    I live in a picture-perfect region — the Hudson Valley, memorialized by painters and poets; a patchwork of autumn reds and yellows, majestic hillsides, storied waterfalls, and little homesteads dotted picturesquely on the slopes of sleepy hamlets. Towns in our area look like Norman Rockwell paintings: there is Main Street, Millerton, with its white 19th century church steeple, its famous Irving Farm cafe with the excellent curated coffee beans, its charming antiques mall, its popular pizzeria. When you drive to Millerton, it looks like you are driving into the heart of archetypal America; everything that Woody Guthrie songs memorialize, everything...

    The Democratic Governors Association has created an independent expenditure committee in New York to boost Gov. Kathy Hochul in the final week of her election bid. .... Hochul has raised $3.5 million in the past few weeks. That brings her contribution total to $49.8 million over the course of the campaign, enough to surpass the previous record of $46.9 million raised for a gubernatorial race by Andrew Cuomo in 2014. She spent $8.4 million and had nearly $6 million remaining. Zeldin raised $3.5 million, bringing his total for the campaign to $21.4 million. He spent $2.2 million and had $5.8...

    Chris Cuomo is demanding that his bosses at NewsNation move his new show to a different time slot — his latest, desperate bid to improve his sagging viewership on the fledging cable-TV network, The Post has learned. Cuomo — who joined NewsNation Oct. 3 after getting fired from CNN for secretly helping his older brother, ex-Gov. Andrew Cuomo, navigate a slew of sex scandals — is fuming about the lackluster performance of his nightly broadcast, which currently airs at 8 p.m., Monday to Friday, sources said.

    President Biden again claimed over the weekend that he was detained by South African authorities while trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison in the 1970s — despite admitting just last month that his telling of the story was false. “I got stopped when I was a young senator trying to see Nelson Mandela in South Africa,” Biden said during a forum broadcast Sunday by left-wing outlet NowThis News. “Afterward he heard, and when he got released, he came to see me in Washington and he walked up to me [and] said, ‘Thank you.'” Biden was responding to Jon-Adrian Velazquez,...

    Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is asking the state's Supreme Court to investigate New York Attorney General Letitia James for publishing a report claiming he sexually assaulted multiple women during his tenure. Cuomo claims James manipulated the investigation in order to pursue her own run for governor, failed to appoint independent investigators to the case and omitted crucial evidence from her report released last August. Cuomo argued James's press conference announcing the findings of the report "was meant to be prejudicial and highly inflammatory, and to villainize me in the public eye, and to mislead the public and the...

    Former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo filed suit Wednesday demanding New York State fund his legal defense against sexual misconduct allegations following his August resignation. Cuomo’s New York State Supreme State Court lawsuit challenges State Attorney General Letitia James for denying a him state-funded private counsel in April in the ongoing sexual harassment and unlawful discrimination lawsuit that a female former member of his security detail brought against him. The former governor claims he has a right to such representation because his alleged misconduct toward the New York state trooper is said to have occurred as he operated as governor.
