Tag: Andrew Cuomo

Join Jim and Greg as they discuss the staggering number of students who fell through the cracks because schools were closed and the impact that could have. They also roll their eyes as Elizabeth Warren and a couple of allies in the House propose a wealth tax, and they discuss why New York Democrats suddenly seem so eager to boot Gov. Cuomo.

 

Join Jim and Greg as they chronicle the second accusation of sexual harassment against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his ever-changing response to it. They also get a kick out of the possibility that Florida Democrats might dust off Charlie Crist to challenge Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2022. And they fire back at an NBC “explainer” on hate crimes, which suggests reporters need to be very careful about labeling something a hate crime if the offender is not white.

Join Jim and Greg as they enjoy hearing HHS nominee Xavier Becerra squirm as he insists he never sued the Little Sisters of the Poor, just the federal government for giving a contraception mandate exemption to the nuns. They also peel back the sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and discuss the growing number of Democrats coming out to denounce him. And they hammer Amnesty International for removing its “prisoner of conscience” label for Russian political figure Alexei Navalny over comments Navalny made 15 years ago.

 

How to Rate Political ‘Scandals’

 

Cuomo vs. Madigan vs. Newsom vs. … Cruz? We’ve been treated to a few “political scandals” as of late. Of course, they happen all the time, but four recent ones stand out.

First, the resignation and bribery investigation of former Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan, a 50-year Democratic fixture in the state’s politics, who just this week resigned from office (he had already stepped down as Speaker). Few politicians have had a stronger grip on a state’s political infrastructure than Speaker Madigan. But allegedly, Speaker Madigan turned ComEd, a large and heavily regulated state utility company, into a job and contracting service for supporters and political allies. I’m sure ratepayers there are interested.

Second, the unfolding COVID/Nursing Home crisis involving New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. We’ve long known about – and the media have largely ignored – his policy decisions early during the COVID pandemic to place COVID-positive patients back into long-term care facilities. Now, we find out that his office lied or, at least, withheld information about it to the federal government and, apparently, a federal investigation is underway.

Seth Barron joins Brian Anderson to discuss New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic, Bill de Blasio’s time as mayor of New York City and the race to succeed him, and the condition of city politics today. Seth’s book, The Last Days of New York, is due out in May.

Join Jim and Greg as they serve up three good martinis, even if the last one is a bit iffy. First, they;re glad to see CVS reporting excellent progress administering vaccines to residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They’re also happy to see the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York investigating the Cuomo administration for covering up the number of nursing home deaths. And they welcome President Biden’s goal of having K-8 students in school five days a week within his first 100 days, although they’ll believe it when they see it.

Cuomo Receives Special Emmy for Nursing Home Cover Up

 

Having become the first politician to receive Emmy’s coveted Founders Award for his 111 press briefings in 2020, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo will receive a second Emmy for his role as a tough-as-nails Democrat of immense probity who in reality was covering up the fatal consequences of his decision to send Covid-positive patients to recover in upstate nursing homes.

On March 2, Cuomo conducted a media briefing from Manhattan to delude New Yorkers and the public at large about the coronavirus outbreak that was just starting to be recognized as a massive public health threat. The 110 briefings that followed would be aired on CNN, MSNBC, and other fake news outlets.

Cuomo’s lies, angry deflections, and refusal to take any responsibility for policy mistakes have reinforced his image as the kind of governor New Yorkers deserve. Cuomo is especially popular in the state’s urban areas: on Thursday approximately 10,000 people gathered in Central Park chanting “Thank you sir, may I have another” while supporters in Buffalo marched downtown carrying banners that read “Cuomo-Spitzer 2024.”

Join Jim and Greg for a busy Presidents’ Day edition! First, they welcome Democrats in New York calling for Gov. Andrew Cuomo to lose his emergency powers in response to the nursing home death scandal. But will the consequences get any more severe? They also shake their heads as the Biden administration offers dozens of new vaccine sites, but they’re missing one important thing? And they unload on CDC Director Rochelle Walensky and Dr. Anthony Fauci for drastically watering down their calls for schools to reopen – an obvious sign that politics is trumping science in the Biden administration.

Killer Cuomo Lied, Chief Minion Blames Trump, DOJ Family Business

 

justice and COVID-19Now it is apparently safe for New York Democrats to call out Killer Coumo. His top aide confessed to New York Democrat state legislative leaders that Cuomo’s team lied to them about the true number of old people he killed. The false excuse was that Orange Man Bad made them do it. The Democrats, with the truth and the cover-up now out in public, are making noises about ending the “emergency” and Cuomo’s dictatorial rule.

Cuomo aide Melissa DeRosa admits they hid nursing home data so feds wouldn’t find out

The stunning admission of a coverup 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 an audio recording of the two-hour-plus meeting.

* The Fierce Force expands with Claudia Tenney FINALLY being declared the winner in NY-22

On this episode of The Federalist Radio Hour, The Federalist staff give awards to the worst corporate media performances of 2020. Whether it was the New York Times controversy over Sen. Tom Cotton’s summer opinion editorial, Chris and Andrew Cuomo’s tone-deaf attempt at a brotherly comedy session on CNN, or the Pulitzer Prize committee for awarding Nikole Hannah-Jones for the revisionist and historically inaccurate 1619 Project, there are and will continue to be plenty of media blunders to go around.

After a hiatus, the podcast is back!

In this episode, Seth and Jay along with guest Karol Markowicz, go through 2020 and offer up some ideas about 2021.

Join Jim and Greg as they cheer the first supplies of the new Pfizer coronavirus vaccine being shipped out to inoculate medical personnel and vulnerable citizens. They also get a kick out of CNN and American Urban Radio Networks reporter April Ryan being horrified that someone secretly recorded and leaked a conversation with Joe Biden and then seriously agreeing with another reporter who mockingly suggested that the media should only report things that come from the Biden team. And they discuss the sexual harassment allegations made against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo by his former aide and how the media are instantly demanding proof when the accused is a Democrat.

Join Jim and Greg, even though there are no good martinis today. They wince as Joe Biden taps radical lefty Xavier Becerra to run the Department of Health and Human Services. They also walk through the thoroughly unsurprising allegations that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo runs a toxic work environment. And they fume as the Chicago Teachers’ Union says returning to in-person instruction is due to racism, sexism, and misogyny while national unions convince Joe Biden to demand $100 billion to reopen elementary schools.

Join Jim and Greg as they welcome steadily improving unemployment numbers as they prepare for Friday’s final jobs report before Election Day. They also unload on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for flat out lying about forcing nursing homes to take COVID-positive patients into their facilities, a policy that resulted in several thousand deaths. And they discuss news that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering rules changes, including cutting off microphones if candidates don’t follow the rules.

Back to the regularly scheduled broadcast!

On this show, Seth, Park, Grant, and Jay discuss Joe Biden’s speech addressing protest violence, how the media narrative shifted to cover the protests, and whether or not Biden’s speech is more effective for quelling violence or for his campaign.

DOJ Wants to Know: Democrat Governors’ Orders Killing Elderly

 

justice and COVID-19The Department of Justice is demanding detailed information from a group of four governors who may have wrongly caused the death of the elderly and vulnerable living in nursing homes. The Department of Justice is giving the governors two weeks to answer a set of pointed questions.

Department of Justice Requesting Data From Governors of States that Issued COVID-19 Orders that May Have Resulted in Deaths of Elderly Nursing Home Residents

Data will help inform whether the Department of Justice will initiate investigations under the Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act (CRIPA) regarding New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Michigan’s response to COVID-19 in public nursing homes

Join Jim and Greg to close out the work week as they cheer a better-than-expected jobs report for July. They also wade through the egregious alleged financial improprieties at the National Rifle Association and the political overreach of New York attorney General Letitia James. And they’re a bit stunned as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announces all schools in his state are welcome to return to in-person instruction this fall.

Rob Long is in for Jim today. He and Greg appreciate the climate change crowd joining other far left activists in admitting what we’ve known for decades – that their real goal is to kill capitalism. Rob also tears into New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his ongoing celebration of himself and for claiming people from other states are now flocking to New York to be safe from the virus. Rob also explains why countless New York businesses are on the brink of collapse because of Cuomo’s callousness. And they have fun with Berkeley, California’s decision to have unarmed civilian city workers make traffic stops instead of police.
