Congress Demands Information on Deadly New York Nursing Home Crisis
On Tuesday, Congressional Republicans demanded New York State and Governor Cuomo hand over documents regarding the State Department of Health ordering nursing homes to admit COVID-19 positive patients.
All five Republican members of the House Select Subcommittee penned a letter asking New York State “…what science or guidance you used to make this lethal decision” that lead to thousands of deaths. Democratic members of the committee did not sign on to the request.
In response to the request Cuomo spokesman Rich Azzopardi called the Republican lawmakers “craven political hacks” who are “apparently seeking some sort of election year boost and to misdirect attention away from the oversight committee’s investigation into the federal pandemic response.”
It should come as no surprise that the Governor’s office would release such a callous statement, while continuing to ignore the over 6,000 lives senselessly lost at the hands of an asinine directive sent down by Commissioner of the Department of Health Howard Zucker, appointed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Thousands and thousands of family members deserve to know what exactly the Governor was thinking when he ordered sick patients be placed amongst the most vulnerable.
The Conservative Party has, and will, remain active on this issue. Last month, we circulated a petition asking for an independent investigation. The petition received thousands of signatures and was sent to United States Attorney General William Barr. We will hold the Governor accountable.
Twitter Gets Tough on Chinese Propaganda
Last week, Twitter deleted over 170,000 accounts directly tied to a state-run Chinese propaganda effort. The accounts were being used to spread false information about the COVID-19, and political issues in Hong Kong.
“In general, this entire network was involved in a range of manipulative and coordinated activities,” Twitter wrote in a blog post. “They were Tweeting predominantly in Chinese languages and spreading geopolitical narratives favorable to the Communist Party of China (CCP), while continuing to push deceptive narratives about the political dynamics in Hong Kong.”
The fake accounts were used to praise China’s response to the Corona Virus and were found to have tweeted over 350,000 times before ultimately being shut down by twitter.
Twitter, often times on the wrong side of history, got this one right when they shut down the Chinese Communist Parties attempt to downplay their role in the COVID-19 cover up, as well as their efforts to eliminate the unique nature of Hong Kong as an independent free market economy.
Candidate Spotlight: Beth Parlato New York’s 27th Congressional District
A mom, attorney, judge, activist, and lifelong Conservative Republican, Beth has seen up close and personal the harm liberals have done to her home in Western New York where she has lived all her life. Now, she is running to represent NY27 and fighting back against those who want to deny our freedoms and glorify a socialist America.
Tired of seeing Judeo Christian values mocked, drugs, dangerous illegal immigrants flow through our broken borders, protected late term abortion, and schools teaching what’s politically correct instead of the truth, Beth will be a doer Washington D.C. desperately needs.
The State Conservative Party is proud to have endorsed Beth Parlato in NY27.
