  • Cuomo takes gaslighting to shocking extremes

    Somebody needs to tell Gov. Andrew Cuomo that when you are in a hole, it’s time to stop digging. Once again at his Emmy Award-winning press conference on Friday, Cuomo deflected and denied when faced with his mishandling of nursing homes and state data. He continued to blame something he calls a “void” in information. Friday there was even a picture of the void in his PowerPoint presentation. It looked like a black hole in space, and Cuomo looked like a shaken shell of a governor. It’s almost sad how the mighty have fallen. The only void at work here...

    Governor Cuomo’s top aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing-home death toll from COVID-19 — telling them “we froze” out of fear the true numbers would “be used against us” by federal prosecutors, The Post has learned. The stunning admission of a cover-up was made by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa during a video conference call with state Democratic leaders in which she said the Cuomo administration had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August because “right around the same time, [then-President Donald Trump] turns this into a giant political football,” according to...
  • To Protect The Vulnerable, These Politicians Put Themselves At The Back Of The COVID Vaccine Line

    'The mere suggestion that Members of Congress are in any way more important than the very people who gave us the privilege of serving in Congress is appalling.'As COVID-19 vaccine disbursement has begun, the question arises of who deserves the first doses. While many agree that priority should go towards the most vulnerable, including the elderly and health-care workers, one group that likely was nowhere near the top of anyone’s list has jumped to the front of the line: politicians. Public officials were granted priority, and several elected officials made use of their spot in line. While few would begrudge...

    Thanksgiving is a time to look back in gratitude on all that has been good in the past year. It’s also a chance to award the bad — and politicians have given lots from which to pick. Below, we award some of the dumbest or most blatantly hypocritical politicians. The Easily Foreseen Consequences Award: Minneapolis City CouncilEarlier this month, the Minneapolis City Council spent nearly $500,000 to hire outside police to help protect the city from a rise in crime, violence, and shootings. The council may not have needed to make the expenditure had they not voted to eliminate the...

    Cuomo is obliterating his own (undeserved) COVID hero mythafisher@businessinsider.com (Anthony L. Fisher) Andrew Cuomo was once America's COVID sweetheart......But in the roughly six months since New York "flattened the curve" Cuomo has revealed himself again and again to be a dissembling, short-tempered narcissist. And as a crisis manager, his track record is overrated, to put it kindly. Now that America's getting a better look at the Luv Gov, the summer crush is fading......Later in the presser, the cool guy in a loose mood said: "If you're socially distant, and you wore a mask, and you were smart, none of this...

    Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) sounded off on the shot President Donald Trump recently took at him over his distrust of a COVID-19 vaccine from the Trump administration. Trump suggested he would not deliver a vaccine to New York because the governor said he would not distribute the vaccine until he had independently confirmed its safety. During MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Cuomo said Trump bashes him because he is outspoken with his criticism of the president. He added Trump is a “typical bully.”

    A silver casket was wheeled to the front of a Brooklyn nursing home Sunday — and 6,500 copies of the cover of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new book were dumped into it in protest of his COVID-19 policies. The number of covers was equal to the roughly 6,500 people who have been reported killed by the coronavirus in nursing homes in the state — although the ralliers said they believe the figure is much higher. “My mother-in-law got COVID in an elder-care facility but died in a hospital, [so] her number does not count’’ in New York’s nursing-home tally, said Janice...

    CUOMO: “There was never a directive that said we will send COVID positive people back to nursing homes. The directive which was modeled on the federal directive said you cannot discriminate. But the state law clearly says a nursing home can’t accept the person unless they can — can treat them." Here's the directive.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) stated that he doesn’t wish he could redo his coronavirus nursing home policy and that “it was wholly non-consequential.” Host Anderson Cooper asked, “You have gotten criticism for, there were more than 6,000 people who died in nursing homes in New York from COVID, some of your critics have pointed to a directive back in March releasing COVID patients into nursing homes as the root cause of the high death toll. Given what we now know, is that something that you wish you would go — could go...

    Axios ^ | Sun., Oct. 11, 2020 | Buzz grows around Cuomo as Biden's attorney general pick
    Democrats are so convinced that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo could be considered for Joe Biden's attorney general that aides at the National Governors Association, which Cuomo chairs, are looking into contingencies for replacing him, two sources familiar with the situation tell Axios. What we're hearing: Some Democratic donors in Cuomo's orbit tell Axios that the governor is being pushed for the job and that Biden would consider him, based on their long friendship. Why it matters: The AG would be among the most politically sensitive — and high-profile — jobs in a Biden administration. The Justice Department will face...

    Variety ^ | October 4, 2020 | Brent Lang
    [snip] John Fithian, head of the National Association of Theatre Owners, believes that the main stumbling block preventing movie theaters from rebounding is Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s decision to keep cinemas closed indefinitely. That’s robbing studios of a major market to show their films, Fithian argues, which may jeopardize the release of upcoming blockbusters such as “Wonder Woman 1984” and Pixar’s “Soul.” In an interview with Variety, the theater business’s top lobbyist urged studios to keep releasing movies during the pandemic and warned that the industry faces financial ruin without government assistance. “No Time to Die” has delayed its release until...
  • In CNN Interview, Sen. Ted Cruz Presses Chris Cuomo About His Brother's Dangerous Nursing Home Policy That Killed Thousands of Elderly Covid-19 Patients

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo finally found himself a guest that was willing to press him about his brother's dangerous policies. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) held nothing back in their interview Wednesday night, including how Gov. Andrew Cuomo's nursing home mandate that forced facilities to accept recovering COVID patients left tens of thousands of seniors vulnerable. The state suggests that over 6,000 seniors died from COVID in elder care homes. But because New York doesn't take into account residents who died after being transferred to the hospital, we expect the number to be much higher. On Wednesday, Gov. Cuomo tried...

    New York beachgoers were greeted with what appears to be a grim anti-Cuomo banner in the sky Saturday. “THE GOV KILLED NANA,” read the banner carried on a propeller plane that flew across New York City and Long Island beaches, according to accounts on social media. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been widely criticized for his handling of the state-regulated nursing homes, where at least 6,447 New Yorkers died during the health crisis. One Rockaway beachgoer told The Post the plane flew by around 4 p.m. as observers stopped to take pictures and applauded the message. “The people were going crazy,”...

    The Justice Department on Wednesday sent letters to the governors of New York and three other Democratic-led states, seeking data on whether they violated federal law by ordering public nursing homes to accept recovering COVID-19 patients from hospitals — actions that have been criticized for potentially fueling the spread of the virus. Prosecutors said the fact-finding letters also sent to New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan were aimed at determining whether the orders “may have resulted in the deaths of thousands of elderly nursing home residents.” “We must ensure they are adequately cared for with dignity and respect and not unnecessarily...

    ...“Protecting the rights of some of society’s most vulnerable members, including elderly nursing home residents, is one of our country’s most important obligations,” Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Division Eric Dreiband said in a statement. “We must ensure they are adequately cared for with dignity and respect and not unnecessarily put at risk.” The DOJ’s Civil Rights Division is considering launching investigations under the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA), which protects the civil rights of persons in state-run nursing homes, among other institutions. “The Civil Rights Division seeks to determine if the state orders requiring admission of...

    Illinois Policy ^ | August 25, 2020 | Joe Barnas
    As COVID-19 was ravaging nursing home populations, which saw over half of the state’s pandemic deaths, the Illinois Department of Public Health chose for 3 1/2 months not to investigate 272 complaints of abuse and neglect. IDPH failed to investigate complaints between March 15 and June 30 despite laws requiring it to do so, the department admitted in a press release issued Aug. 21. The acknowledgement comes a month after IDPH fired Debra Bryars, an agency deputy director who ran the Office of Health Care Regulation. The agency had also placed Aimee Isham, who oversaw the Bureau of Long-Term Care,...

    In an opening night convention speech stunning for the depth and breadth of its horrific chutzpah and ghoulish hypocrisy, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ignored his own criminal negligence in ushering patients infected with the Chinese Wuhan virus into New York nursing homes sentencing tens of thousands of vulnerable seniors to their deaths. It was perhaps fitting that the first night of the party of death’s national convention, a party that supports the killing of unborn life on demand up to and even after the moment of birth, featured New York’s angel of nursing home death who turned nursing homes...
