Andrew cuomo sexual harassment Cuomo impeachment Governor Andrew Cuomo Intelwars New York New york democrats Nursing home scandal

Gov. Cuomo slams politicians calling for his resignation, says he will not bow to ‘cancel culture’

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Friday once again refused to resign even as seven women have now accused him of sexual harassment and state Democratic lawmakers have opened an impeachment investigation against him. Cuomo called those lawmakers “reckless” and “dangerous” during a phone conference with reporters and vowed that he would not bow to “cancel culture.”

The majority of House Democrats from New York stunned the political world Friday by making coordinated announcements calling for Cuomo’s resignation after Democrats in the state Assembly launched an impeachment investigation the day before. On the same day, a female reporter named Jessica Bakeman became the seventh woman to come forward with accusations of sexual harassment against the governor, writing in New York magazine that Cuomo touched her inappropriately and that “he uses touching and sexual innuendo to stoke fear in us. That is the textbook definition of sexual harassment.”

Cuomo is also under investigation by an independent probe appointed by the New York State attorney general’s office and is still facing criticism over his mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic and his executive orders sending COVID-19-positive patients from hospitals to nursing homes and group homes for people with disabilities.

Addressing the sexual harassment allegations, the governor reiterated his position that New Yorkers should wait for the investigations to be completed before forming an opinion of the facts.

“There are often many motivations for making an allegation. And that is why you need to know the facts before you make a decision. There are now two reviews under way. No one wants them to happen more quickly and more thoroughly than I do. Let them do it,” Cuomo said.

“I’m not going to argue this issue in the press. That is not how it is done; that is not the way it should be done. Serious allegations should be weighed seriously, right? That’s why they are called serious,” Cuomo lectured reporters, adding that there’s a difference between “facts” and “opinions.”

“Politicians who don’t know a single fact but yet form a conclusion and an opinion, are in my opinion, reckless and dangerous,” he charged. “The people of New York should not have confidence in a politician who takes a position without knowing any facts or substance. That, my friends, is politics at its worst.”

Continuing, he said politicians take positions for “political expediency,” among other reasons.

“People know the difference between playing politics, bowing to cancel culture, and the truth,” Cuomo said. “Let the review proceed. I’m not going to resign. I was not elected by the politicians; I was elected by the people.

“Part of this is that I am not part of the political club, and you know what? I’m proud of it,” Cuomo, the son of Mario Cuomo, a former governor of New York and ex-husband of Kerry Kennedy, the third daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, audaciously claimed.

He further denied the allegations against him, saying he has “been in the public eye my entire life” and won multiple elections under public scrutiny. He reiterated that voters should wait for the completed reports from the attorney general’s independent probe, saying “an opinion without facts is irresponsible.”

After fielding questions from reporters, Cuomo concluded, “Politics is part of all of this. But I just will focus on my job. In the meantime, I want to make it clear that what is being alleged just did not happen. The last allegation is not true and I’ve not had a sexual relationship that was inappropriate, period.”

Cuomo nursing home Governor Andrew Cuomo Intelwars Janice Dean Janice dean blasts cuomo

‘Lawmakers, grow a spine’: Janice Dean calls for legal action against Gov. Cuomo amid nursing home scandal

New York state Democratic Attorney General Letitia James recently reported that the state’s coronavirus nursing home deaths could have been undercounted by as much as 50%. In response, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) said, “But who cares — 33 [percent], 29 [percent] — died in the hospital, died in a nursing home. They died.”

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in a New York state nursing home, joined “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” to discuss how the mainstream media is finally starting to catch wind that Gov. Cuomo may not have handled the pandemic perfectly.

“It’s been 10 months that I’ve been covering this governor, and he continues to really surprise me with his arrogance, his narcissism, his stupidity,” Janice said of Gov. Cuomo.

Janice lambasted the governor’s COVID response, in particular his March 25 directive to put coronavirus-infected elderly patients into the state’s nursing homes to free up hospital beds. According to the Associated Press, Gov. Cuomo’s mandate led to more than 4,500 COVID-positive patients living in what Gov. Cuomo called “the optimum feeding ground for this virus.”

“I have been shouting from the mountaintops for 10 months … talking about Cuomo and the mandate to put COVID-positive patients in a nursing home, and the fact that this governor continues to hide the numbers,” Janice stated. “The Justice Department had an investigation into [Cuomo] and he didn’t give any information, Glenn. I got it from a top source with the Justice Department, the top investigatory unit in the nation, and he wasn’t giving them information. So [AG James] took it upon herself to investigate him, and came up with the fact that the numbers have been skewed. He’s been basically covering them up for many months now, and they’re at least 50% higher than they’ve officially been reporting.”

Janice also noted an article in the New York Times that reported at least nine high-level health department officials have resigned in recent months over disrespectful treatment form the governor. Gov. Cuomo responded to the criticism by borrowing a line from Mike Tyson: “Everybody has a plan until I punch them in the face.”

“[Cuomo was] basically saying, ‘I don’t need anybody. I know who I rely on … hospital lobbyists’,” Janice explained.

“Top donors, not scientists … hospital lobbyists, that give [Cuomo] millions of dollars, are whispering in his ear about the nursing home issue and the vaccine rollout. This is criminal … it’s criminal,” she added. “We need to take his powers away. He has control over everything. They gave him superpowers, so no one can challenge him. And I’ve been saying to lawmakers, grow a spine. You have a lot of ammunition now against this governor. Go in, and take his powers away. We are a democracy, not a monarchy.”

Coronavirus Coronavirus tyranny Governor Andrew Cuomo Intelwars Mandatory quarantine New York New york covid restrictions

NY health officials threaten residents with involuntary COVID quarantine if they don’t self-quarantine

Public health officials in at least one New York county are sending letters to residents who’ve been exposed to COVID-19 reminding them that they could face a court order mandating quarantine and criminal prosecution for refusing to comply if they neglect to quarantine themselves.

In a letter sent to a New York resident obtained by the First Liberty Institute and shared with TheBlaze, public health officials in Chemung County made a formal request that the resident place himself in quarantine after being alerted to his exposure to a relative who tested positive for COVID-19.

“It has been determined that you have recently arrived from a state designated pursuant to New York State Executive Order 205 OR may have been exposed to a person with COVID-19, a communicable disease that has the potential to adversely affect your health and the health of the public,” the letter states. “Therefore, CHEMUNG COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT is requesting that you quarantine yourself to protect your health and the health of others by avoiding public spaces and private social gatherings and staying home from work.”

The letter goes on to request that the resident quarantine at his residence for a period of 10 days since exposure to COVID-19 and to alert the county health department should he develop any symptoms of the coronavirus. The health department goes on to warn of consequences for failing to comply with Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s executive orders mandating “voluntary” quarantines.

“Failure to comply with this request may result in the issuance of a Public Health Director Order pursuant to Public Health Law § 2100, or a Court Order of commitment pursuant to PublicHealth Law § 2120 for your involuntary commitment enforced by CHEMUNG COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT and/or law enforcement officials. Willful breach of a Court Order may be considered contempt of Court and may result in criminal prosecution,” the letter states.

The First Liberty Institute expressed concern that the New York state government could be infringing on the civil liberties of New Yorkers with mandatory quarantine orders.

“When state and local government officials believe they have the power to ignore the First Amendment and shut down churches, it should surprise no one when they use a crisis to eviscerate the rest of our Constitutional rights,” said Keisha Russell, counsel for First Liberty. “This is exactly why we fought government orders from coast to coast that targeted religious worship, and why the Supreme Court of the United States agreed that government authority has limits even during a pandemic. Government officials in New York are simply out of control.”

The public health law cited gives New York health officers the power to investigate cases where a physician reports that an individual may be “afflicted with a communicable disease” and “is unable or unwilling to conduct himself and to live in such a manner as not to expose members of his family or household or other persons with whom he may be associated to danger of infection.”

After an investigation, the health officer may file a complaint against the offender in court and obtain an order from a judge that “may commit the said person to any hospital or institution established for the care of persons suffering from any such communicable disease or maintaining a room, ward or wards for such persons.”

The executive order issued by Gov. Cuomo in June mandated that any individuals traveling to New York from a state with high rates of positive coronavirus tests or residents who have come into contact with persons infected with COVID-19 voluntarily self-quarantine in their home or a hotel room if traveling. But at the time, Cuomo warned that anyone who refused to comply with “voluntary” quarantine could be placed in mandatory quarantine by the state.

aggressive enforcement Bill de Blasio citizens Coronavirus COVID-19 destruction of businesses DICTATORSHIP dystopia Enforcement Governor Andrew Cuomo Headline News Intelwars LIES Mask mandates Mayor Middle Class New World Order New York Non compliance Police State propaganda Regulations SLAVERY social distancing orders submission

New York Governor DEMANDS Compliance With His Totalitarian Rules

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces that the state will enact “aggressive enforcement” of COVID-19 protocols.  Cuomo has descended into a full-blown dictator and says he will close non-compliant businesses and schools.

Beginning this week, New Yorkers will be subjected to a police state and dictatorship never before thought possible in the “land of the free.” Queens, Brooklyn, Orange, and Rockland counties have all seen recent increases in positive coronavirus cases, which means politicians are taking new draconian measures against the people to maintain their grip on power.  These areas will be the target of direct enforcement,” ensuring businesses and citizens are abiding by mask mandates, social distancing orders, and other regulations in place in the state, according to a report by RT. 

“Local governments have not done an effective job of enforcement in these hotspot ZIP codes. [New York State] will be doing aggressive enforcement starting tomorrow,” Cuomo tweeted on Sunday after a conference call with members of the press. “As we saw with bars and restaurants when the state initiated enforcement actions compliance greatly increased.”

As far as looting and rioting go, those will likely be left to destroy whatever they want.  But police will be aggressively enforcing the draconian COVID-19 rules shoved down the throats of the public. This is a sad dystopian nightmare for the people of New York.

The boot is on the neck of New York business owners, and those who survive this horrific tyranny will be the few fortunate ones. New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio also announced on Sunday he is seeking the governor’s approval to shut down schools and non-essential businesses in nine zip codes in Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods where there has been an increase in positive cases. 

“We’re having an extraordinary problem – something we haven’t seen since spring,’’ the mayor told reporters of the uptick in positive cases.
