    More On: andrew cuomo Nancy Pelosi’s Capitol pawns: Devine Ex-prosecutor Bharara raps Cuomo over sex harass scandal NYC entertainment venues have a reopening date Why Andrew Cuomo is falling on all fronts The years-long feud between Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio escalated further Thursday as the mayor accused the governor of portraying New York City as a hell-scape to distract from his own unfolding scandals. It was the latest entry in the vicious back-and-forth between New York’s two most powerful politicians as Cuomo stares down separate investigations into allegations he sexually harassed three women — including two subordinates — and his administration sat on key data that revealed thousands of coronavirus deaths were linked to outbreaks in nursing homes. “Go around the neighborhoods of this city, people are fighting back, neighborhoods are vibrant, we’re turning the corner. That’s what leaders should celebrate and if they’re not,...
    One of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s sex-harassment accusers Monday ripped him for trying to explain away his past actions as just “jokes’’ — seething that he is refusing to “take responsibility for his predatory behavior. “As we know, abusers — particularly those with tremendous amounts of power — are often repeat offenders who engage in manipulative tactics to diminish allegations, blame victims, deny wrongdoing and escape consequences,” former gubernatorial aide-turned-accuser Charlotte Bennett said in a scathing statement. “It took the governor 24 hours and significant backlash to allow for a truly independent investigation,’’ she said of Cuomo’s move to at first personally appoint a retired judge to review the allegations against him, before finally caving in to outcry and passing the probe to the state attorney general.  “These are not the actions of someone who simply feels misunderstood; they are the actions of an individual who wields his power to avoid justice,’’ Bennett said of Cuomo....

    Mayor Bill de Blasio has said up to 75 percent of the COVID-19 vaccines given out at state-run centers in New York City have been given to people who are not residents.  In an apparent shot at embattled the state's governor Andrew Cuomo, de Blasio told reporters Monday that the big sites 'do not perform like we'd like to see'.  The Democrat confirmed 75 per cent of the shots administered at the Aqueduct Race Track in Queens have been given to non-New Yorkers. He said 42 percent of those given out at the Javits convention center were given to out of towners.     De Blasio said: 'I want to be clear that in terms of NYC, these sites do not perform what we hope to see, which was more and more focus on equity.'  Cuomo is facing allegations of sexual harassment from two former aides; he also faces accusations of a cover up of...

Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal Letters to the Editor — Feb. 26, 2021 Cuomo health commissioner won’t say who ordered cover-up of nursing home deaths Gov. Andrew Cuomo came under attack Friday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference — where a Republican member of Congress mocked him over sexual harassment allegations and ripped his handling of nursing homes amid the coronavirus crisis. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Florida) said that “the fake news media and their allies in Silicon Valley made Gov. Cuomo out to be some iconic cross between King David and Tom Brady.” “What a lie that turned out to be,” he added. Gaetz then brought up the sexual harassment scandal sparked earlier this week by ex-Cuomo aide Lindsey Boylan, saying, “According to former aides, Gov. Cuomo...
    In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla., on Friday, one of the state's most prominent congressmen, Rep. Matt Gaetz of Pensacola slammed the Republican establishment and the apparent alliance between Big Tech, the mainstream media and major Democrats. Gaetz slammed what he called "lockdown governors" in Democrat-run states who, in contrast to the Sunshine State, continue to keep their individuals and businesses under strict social and economic restrictions. "How about freedom for young and healthy people," he said at the conference, which is streaming live on Fox Nation. "How about we ditch the lockdown governors -- Cuomo, Newsom and Murphy, and never ditch the American way of life and the American spirit." "When big government fuses with Big Tech, government will become more efficient at acquiring and centralizing power." During his speech, he pointed to the press's and Big Tech's glowing treatment of New York Gov. Andrew...
    The sister-in-law of Fox News meteorologist Janice Dean has slammed New York Governor Cuomo over his handling of COVID-19 deaths in the state's nursing homes.  She has accused the governor of saying 'ridiculous things' in an attempt to brush over the deaths and not using the resources made available to him. Donna Johnson, who lost both her parents last year after they contracted COVID-19 while in long-term care facilities, claims that she witnessed nurses in her dad's care home wearing garbage bags and says that the last thing her mother said to her was, 'Donna I'm scared'. 'I'd like to ask Governor Cuomo how would he feel if he had to live every day with the last words from his mother, "Andrew, I'm scared",' she said to Fox News' Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday. It comes as a new poll reveals that 41 percent of New Yorkers believe Cuomo has done...
    “The View” cohosts Meghan McCain and Sunny Hostin joined forces Wednesday, lashing out at Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo over continued questions about the nursing homes in his state. Hostin and McCain, in a rare moment of agreement, both criticized Cuomo for evading questions about the real coronavirus death toll in New York nursing homes — and for his repeated attempts to blame others for the fallout. (RELATED: Meghan McCain Challenges Brian Stelter On Cuomo Brothers’ ‘Comedy Routine’ — He Ignores It) WATCH: Hostin began by saying that she had found Cuomo to be a bit evasive when she asked him about the nursing homes, saying, “I asked him the question about the nursing home deaths when he was on the show, and I thought he was a bit evasive then, and now, in retrospect, really evasive.” Hostin went on to say that she had read Cuomo’s...
    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has come under intense scrutiny in the past few weeks over serious questions about nursing home deaths, between a report from the New York AG’s office saying deaths were seriously undercounted and more recent claims from a Cuomo aide about withholding data on the death toll. During his press conference Monday, the governor said he was going to “clarify facts” on the matter. “This past year, there is a toxic political environment, and everything gets politicized. And there’s political spin and there are facts, two very different things,” he said, claiming nursing home death toll numbers were “always fully, publicly, and accurately reported.” Cuomo addressed a New York Department of Health memo from last March on nursing homes at the center of the scandal, claiming staffers brought covid into nursing homes: “Covid did not get into the nursing homes by people coming from hospitals. The...
    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Monday he is going to investigate hospitals that aren't working their way through their vaccine allotment after a pitiful weekend at the end of January where healthcare workers failed to show up for their appointments.  The state has so far only been offering the vaccines to people aged over 65 and healthcare workers.  But thousands of appointments that are reserved for them have gone unclaimed. In some instances, people have reserved their appointment then not shown up for it.  Over the last weekend in January, vaccine sites should have been swarmed with eligible people. Instead, many were empty. Doctors said of the weekend: 'We blew our chance to vaccinate thousands.' On Monday, Cuomo said that any vaccines in hospitals that are not used on healthcare workers by February 15 will be redirected to go to the next eligible group - people with comorbidities.  ...
    A top adviser for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo lashed out Wednesday at a group of House Republicans after they called on the Justice Department to subpoena the Democrat following the release of a report that found that the state undercounted coronavirus deaths among nursing home patients. Seven Republicans from New York, led by Rep. Elise Stefanik, submitted a letter to the Justice Department seeking a subpoena to force Cuomo and his administration to hand over documents related to nursing home deaths, The New York Post reported. Rich Azzopardi, a top adviser to Cuomo, responded to the letter in a statement to The Post, calling Stefanik a “QANON Trump puppet” and member of the “treason caucus.” Azzopardi asserted that the Republicans “helped foment” the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, according to the Post. “It’s a naked ploy and New Yorkers see right through it. Maybe someone should...
    The head of the voting machine company at the center of the former President Donald Trump’s “big lie” about election fraud said his legal team is looking every “bad faith actor” spreading disinformation about the firm and hasn’t ruled out filing more defamation lawsuits going forward. Speaking with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Dominion Voting Systems CEO John Poulos hinted that his company could expand the number of legal targets in its campaign to fight false and damaging claims. So far, Dominion has filed two lawsuits, against Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and unofficial legal advocate Sidney Powell, both of whom have repeatedly pushed outlandish and totally debunked theories about the company’s role in the 2020 election. “We have no choice,” Poulos told the CNN host. “What we’re seeing right now, I don’t think we’ve ever seen before and it’s affecting certainly our good name and it’s raising serious doubts in electors’ minds across the country. And, frankly,...

This is from Laura Ingraham’s show a few minutes ago.

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- A few thousand fans will be allowed at the Buffalo Bills' playoff game, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday.It will be the first time fans have been in the stands at a professional sports competition in New York since the initial outbreak of COVID-19 led to the cancellation of many large-scale events back in March.The agreement between the NYS Health Department, the Bills, and the NFL will allow for 6,700 fans to attend the game while abiding by social distancing guidelines and wearing masks.Cuomo said the move could be the first step on the path to reopening restaurants and other large even spaces like Madison Square Garden and Broadway shows."If you can do it in Buffalo, 7,000 people, but it's outdoors and it's controlled, if it works there, can you do Madison Square Garden?

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo imagined a cinematic confrontation at the Inauguration next month, where, if he were President-elect Joe Biden, he’d publicly call out outgoing President Donald Trump as having let the Republican Party down. Speaking with (infamously briefly) former Trump White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, Cuomo plumbed the depths of the president’s increasingly delusional and norm-breaking behavior. “There had been people trying to talk sense to him. I guess we got our answer, right?” Cuomo said, alluding to the controversial pardons of former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Roger Stone as well as his son-in-law Jared’s father, Charles Kushner. “Yeah, no. He doesn’t care. He’s not listening to any of those people,” Scaramucci said. “But those pardons, as shocking as they are, are a precursor to more shocking pardons… Imagine Americans out there struggling and they’re watching this saying ‘Wait a minute, there is a totally different set of rules for these people, totally not what I learned about...

    For New Yorkers who have lived through ground zero of the pandemic, the persona of serious do-good Governor Andrew Cuomo was more media mythology than reality. And while the governor’s daily briefings offered him as the caring anti-Trump as the first wave of the virus slammed New York and America, he’s increasingly showing his true colors. Cuomo, who’s been promoting his new book on “pandemic leadership,” lashed out at a reporter for asking why parents are confused about why New York City’s schools are closing even as bars and gyms remain open. The governor said that the reporter’s question was “obnoxious,” and that the buck stopped not with him but with local officials. Sound familiar? There’s a lot of mini-Trump in Cuomo, starting with careless anti-science bravado. Let's check off the boxes of similarity.
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo quickly unraveled during a press briefing Wednesday, scolding a veteran reporter for what he described was an “obnoxious” and “offensive” tone — and that was just the first question. The governor got heated after Wall Street Journal reporter Jimmy Vielkind asked Cuomo during an afternoon Albany press briefing whether New York City public schools will stay open or not amid rising statewide coronavirus infection rates. “Alright, first of all, let’s try not to be obnoxious and offensive in your tone. Because you’re 100-percent wrong,” Cuomo scolded Vielkind before raising his voice. After Cuomo said New York City will move into a designated medium-risk “orange” zone and schools will shutter if the Big Apple hits a 3-percent infection rate, Vielkind asked, “Does the city have the ability to close its schools, are you now taking control saying you have the power to make this decision? And for...

    President Trump stepped in front of the White House press for the first time in more than a week to celebrate news of a successful COVID-19 vaccine and promise that his administration will not impose another lockdown. At a time when he is under pressure to concede election defeat to Joe Biden, his appearance in the White House rose garden amounted to a lap of honor for Operation Warp Speed, his administration’s effort to get a vaccine to market in record time. The operation meant that a vaccine had been produced in less than a year – far faster than the ten to 12 years usually expected, he said. “No medical breakthrough of this scope and magnitude has ever been achieved this rapidly, this quickly,” he said. “And we’re very proud of it.” But he also used the occasion to hit out at opponents in the form of Gov. Andrew...
    When President Trump first told the American public that a coronavirus vaccine could come this year -- at the time he said possibly before Election Day -- Democrats including Vice President-elect Kamala Harris said they would not trust Trump as to any vaccine's safety. Now that Election Day has come and gone and Pfizer announced that its vaccine was more than 90% effective in a recent trial, do they remain skeptical? JOE BIDEN AVOIDS REPORTERS' QUESTIONS FOLLOWING REMARKS ON CORONAVIRUS ADVISORY BOARD During a CNN interview and again during her debate against Vice President Mike Pence, Harris had indicated that she did not trust the president on this matter. "I will say that I would not trust Donald Trump and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of whatever he's talking about," Harris told CNN's Dana Bash in September. “If the...
    Miles Taylor, the former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff, spoke with CNN‘s Chris Cuomo on Wednesday night. Earlier in the day, Taylor unveiled himself as Anonymous, who’d written a 2018 op-ed speaking out against President Donald Trump published by The New York Times and a book called A Warning. He left his position with DHS in April 2019. During the interview with Cuomo, Taylor commented about the president and what he suggested the country do to migrants at the southern border of the United States. “The president, at one point, wanted us to gas, electrify, and shoot migrants at the border,” he said. “What we’re talking about, Chris is innocent women and children who are seeking a better life in the United States fleeing violence and persecution, and the commander in chief is telling us he wants to gas them,” said Taylor. He described meetings in the Oval...

    A Hasidic Brooklyn synagogue barred from holding a public wedding amid fears it would attract in excess of 10,000 people has hit out at the ‘unwarranted attacks’ that forced it to abandon the planned celebrations. The Congregation Yetev Lev D’Satmar was served an order Friday night from the office of state Governor Andrew Cuomo, barring the Williamsburg-based house of worship from hosting a public wedding Monday for the grandson of its grand rabbi, Zalman Leib Teitelbaum. But the synagogue, located along Rodney Street, has blasted the order, insisting they had taken special measures to ensure the wedding complied with coronavirus safety protocol, however claimed ‘nobody verified our plans before attacking us.’ ‘The unwarranted attacks on this event, originated by those besmirching the community, are detached from the facts,’ the synagogue’s secretary, Chaim Jacobowitz, told the NY Post.

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired photos of Chris Cuomo that appeared to show the CNN anchor in public without a mask.  According to Carlson, the images of Cuomo were taken over the weekend and showed him at a restaurant with a cigar in hand.  The photos are believed to have been taken on Long Island.  Carlson aired the images in a bid to call out Cuomo for his criticism of people who disobey the rules when it comes to following guidelines amid the pandemic. 'Chris Cuomo calls us immoral for doubting the rules,' Carlson said on his show. 'Again, we don't judge Chris Cuomo, Chris Cuomo judges us,' Carlson added.  Scroll down for video   Fox News host Tucker Carlson aired photos of Chris Cuomo that showed the CNN anchor in public without a mask According to Carlson, the images of Cuomo were taken over the weekend and...
    Chris Cuomo was lampooned for labeling a video of President Trump removing his face mask at the White House 'propaganda,' after he shared a similar video months ago.  The CNN anchor appeared on air shortly after Trump returned from Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, to the White House via Marine One on Monday evening. Upon his arrival, an infected Trump walked up the steps of the South Portico, removed his face mask and stared over the balcony as photographers snapped his picture. Trump then disappeared into the White House, where staffers were present, and briefly returned to the balcony. He did not put his face mask back on during this time. CNN reported that Trump's ascent into the White House was for a reshoot as part of a potential campaign video, and Cuomo used this to level criticism at the president. On Trump's stage-produced televised return to the White...
    CNN host Brian Stelter has a slimy new book out called “Hoax” in which he attacks Fox News and President Donald Trump with a lot of anonymously sourced hit quotes. My favorite stop on his book tour has to be an appearance during the closing minutes of ABC’s “The View” on Sept. 16. Stelter’s obsequious inquirers such as NPR’s Terry Gross and PBS’ Judy Woodruff never pressed him on whether CNN manipulated politicians behind the scenes and lied about it. What made his appearance on “The View” great was how several co-hosts turned the microscope back on CNN. Meghan McCain turned right to the ethical questions being asked about CNN lately, most prominently by Tucker Carlson on Fox. Turnabout is fair play. Carlson played audio in which CNN President Jeff Zucker appeared to offer debate advice to Trump in 2016 and talk about offering Trump his own program. Jake Tapper...
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo blasted a massive New York University party in Washington Square Park over the weekend and city authorities for failing to control it. Crowds of NYU students flocked to the park in Manhattan for an evening of drinking and partying, many of them not wearing masks and ignoring social distancing orders as two DJs blasted music. It was a shocking start to the school year that resumed classes on Wednesday and 20 students have since been suspended for violating COVID-19 safety guidelines. Cuomo lambasted the Saturday party during the coronavirus press conference Tuesday. 'They had large gatherings in Washington Square Park. Frankly, NYU security didn’t do anything about it. The local police didn’t do anything about it,' he said.  'You have NYU students coming from other countries. You have a large gathering, many people without masks, it went on for hours, what do you think is going to...
    CNN hosts Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo blasted Republicans for not mentioning the Illinois teenager who allegedly shot and killed two people during riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin, though Republicans have decried civil unrest for months. Following Vice President Mike Pence's keynote address at the third night of the Republican National Convention, the network hosts issued a slew of criticisms for Republicans as violent riots in Kenosha continue. At one point, Lemon raised his voice while appearing to chide a producer for asking them to conclude the segment. "Don’t say this is Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo, liberal media. We said with former vice president Joe Biden that he should speak out about the violence that's happening on the streets, that he must do it, that it was an issue for Democrats and the possibility of his election and also, just in general, he should speak out about — against...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo lashed out at conservative news outlets Friday when asked if he would appoint an independent commission to investigate whether his polices were responsible for a surge of nursing home deaths in the state. “I believe it is a political issue,” Cuomo said at a press conference when a New York Post reporter asked about a possible independent review of his nursing home polices, The Post reported. “I think it’s the New York Post, I think it’s Michael Goodwin, I think it’s Bob McManus, I think it’s Fox TV,” the Democrat said, naming two Post columnists. Cuomo has come under fire over a March 25 order that required hospitals to send nursing home patients back to their facilities even if they tested positive for coronavirus. Cuomo’s critics said that the policy would increase the risk of outbreaks at long-term care facilities, putting residents’ lives in danger....
    Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday the city will ramp up its enforcement of coronavirus social distancing rules at bars and restaurants for the upcoming hot-weather weekend — as Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that more than three dozen eateries and pubs were hit with violations. There will be “a lot of enforcement” for the coming weekend where temps are forecast to soar into the 90s, de Blasio told reporters during his daily City Hall press briefing. “We absolutely are planning to have a lot of people out — the civilian folks doing education, the face coverings, a lot from the Sheriff’s Office, police department as needed,” de Blasio said. “But we are very focused on getting the point across to people and everybody has got to take this seriously and help each other by following the rules.” The city and state have been cracking down on Big Apple watering holes...
    Cops stationed at airports will enforce quarantine rules on visitors entering New York as Governor Andrew Cuomo warns that 39 US states now pose an 'increasing threat'. Cuomo told travelers arriving into New York that the quarantine enforcement is 'serious' and it marks the first time border patrol has been carried out between states.  'Our quarantine enforcement is serious. And I want people coming into this state to know that. States have never done border patrol before, we had to scramble, it was another COVID first,' Cuomo said at his press briefing in New York City Thursday.  'We have police at airports. When you land, there is a police officer there. You have to fill out a form as to where you're going. It is illegal to leave the airport without filling out the form.' Cops stationed at airports will enforce quarantine rules on visitors entering New York as...
    NEW YORK - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo criticized the federal government’s COVID-19 response as he headed to Savannah, Georgia Monday to offer equipment and expertise to officials in that hard-hit city. “I feel compelled to go because I know a little bit about this, I’ve been in the midst of it,” he told reporters at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York. “We are in a position to help where we are now. Our numbers are down low. We have the medical staff, we have the equipment, we have the ventilators and we have the knowledge of how to do this.” Cuomo said he is making good on a pledge he made when New York was hitting its peak to help other states should they need it. In March and April, New York was the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, at the time seeing...
    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has significantly stepped up enforcement efforts for his out-of-state travel advisory, which requires travelers coming from coronavirus hot-spot states to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival in New York. On Monday, the governor issued an executive order requiring travelers from designated states to fill out a contact information form from the N.Y. Department of Health (see it here courtesy of WKBW-TV) upon arrival. Anyone coming into the state whether by plane, train, or car is required to complete the form either in paper copy or online. The big news: Now, the governor is ensuring compliance by stationing "enforcement teams" at airports across the state. The enforcement teams, which will "meet arriving aircrafts at gates and greet disembarking passengers to request proof of completion" of the form, will be comprised of peace officers as well as Port Authority and State Police officers, according to...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Gov. Phil Murphy are tightening the restrictions on travel into our area, adding four new states to the hot spot quarantine list. There’s also enforcement beginning Tuesday at New York airports, CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reported.

New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all others forms of Lowlife & Scum. The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces.
