Howard Zucker is resigning; Hochul gives the author of the memo responsible for thousands of nursing home deaths a pat on the back.

Howard Zucker, NY health commissioner who oversaw Cuomo nursing home scandal, resigns.  The caveat is “as soon as a replacement can be found.”  Seriously, there is no one in the NYS Department of Health that can act as an interim commissioner while the DOH finds a new qualified commissioner?  He will be paid while the search for a replacement (upward of $136,000) is found and rest assured he will be able to collect his pension.  Hochul said: “He also has an opportunity to move on to new ventures and I appreciate him his service.”  Has Gov. Hochul forgotten it was his DOH memo that sent those with COVID-19 back to nursing homes knowing full well that it would spread like “fire through dry grass?”

How not to show your constituents they are your priority;  Foreign workers could replace NY’s unvaccinated hospital, nursing home staffers: Hochul

Is anyone really surprised by this?  State wrestles with $9 billion in unemployment debt/Lawmakers remain largely silent on a tab that could lead to increases business costs.  When government forcibly closes businesses and pays people to stay home, it is the obvious result.  The question becomes what is government going to do to remedy the situation?  As noted, silence from the leadership. “Democratic leadership in both the Assembly and Senate did not respond to requests for comment on any plans to address the unemployment debt.”  Struggling businesses will undoubtedly have to replenish the money and you the consumer will pay for governments’ misguided generosity with our money.  It is well pass time to change the leadership in New York State.  If you have any doubt about that read this:  ‘An Amazing Transition’: Andrea Stewart-Cousins on the New Era in State Politics and What’s Next.

Statement from Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Additional 12,000 New York Covid Deaths 

 August 25, 2021

“Governor Kathy Hochul’s admission that 12,000 more New Yorkers have perished from Covid-19 than previously reported — bringing the current grim tally to more than 55,000 — begs the question: Why is she only telling us now?

“Governor Hochul served as New York’s Lt. Governor from 2015 until yesterday, and, as the state’s second in command, she clearly had to know — or should have known — the true Covid death toll in the state. So why did she stay silent as Governor Cuomo hid these numbers? Did her pledge to be transparent begin only yesterday?”

As a person who loves and respects America, it saddens me to link to this article.  I did not vote for Joe Biden, we disagree on most policy issues almost all the time, yet, seeing this headline, grieves me. Today’s world that has seen far too much terrorism and the debacle happening in Afghanistan now, tells our enemies that we are weak.   Biden’s Afghanistan withdrawal shows a disengaged, befuddled president.  We did not become the beacon of freedom because we had a president so disengaged from his own appointees that he overrides their advice.  Americans must come together and save our nation from the possibility of another catastrophic September 11th attack on our land or any other place.  Graham Allen lays it out well in his accurate and excellent August 21 Op-Ed in the NY Post:  Our polarized country needs to rebuild the unity we felt on Sept. 12, 2001 for if we don’t, America will collapse from within.

I feel good. I’m not a martyr. It’s just, I saw the options, option A, option B.”  Wow!  Cuomo’s arrogance, egotism and condescension is beyond description.  If he believes what he said, he must never be elected to any position, including, but not limited to, dog catcher. And if his brother Chris advised him that voters would believe his over confident statement, then simply put, they – voters – do not understand the responsibility they have in placing people in elective office.

Term limits needed now more than ever…

Governor Cuomo’s resignation must not be the end of the impeachment process nor the other investigations that are ongoing.  His resignation announcement was pathetic; a disservice to all New Yorkers and to put it bluntly a crock of manure.  New Yorkers must not accept his resignation as enough penance for all that he has done to undermine quality of life for all New Yorkers and especially those who had the fortitude to come forward. 

Lest we forget:  Some 15,000 dead seniors and 11 harassment victims later, Andrew Cuomo finally resigns in disgrace as New York governor.

Ronan Farrow writes about Andrew Cuomo’s War Against a Federal Prosecutor in the New Yorker.

Read this article before you believe that the incoming governor will solve New York’s problems.  Did she write her own press releases, or did the current governor’s machine write and issue for her?  Either way it is a problem for her.  For years, Kathy Hochul praised creepy Andrew Cuomo as a protector of women.  What is telling in this article is the last sentence, “Reps for Hochul did not immediately respond to requests for comment.”

From the Albany Times Union:  Hochul plots course as incoming governor after Cuomo’s resignation/ Says her administration will never be called “toxic.”  Did anyone expect her to say it would be toxic?  Amazing how one could be involved with the Cuomo Administration and not be aware of the toxicity permeating on the 2nd Floor of the State Capitol…Albany has never been known as a place where “secrets” are secret.  The Cuomo Administration was well known for its bullying tactics, in fact he was quite proud of them.

Hochul promises to ‘fight like hell’ for New York…like she did when she dutifully praised the governor as a protector of women?

America needs term limits in every level of government!!

Some background:  “Washington’s voluntary decision to decline a third term was also seen by many people as a safeguard against the type of tyrannical power yielded by the British crown during the Colonial era.”

“… talk about a presidential term-limits amendment started in 1944 when Republican candidate Thomas Dewey said a potential 16-year term for Roosevelt was a threat to democracy. In a speech in Buffalo on October 31, 1944, Dewey said, “four terms or sixteen years is the most dangerous threat to our freedom ever proposed. That is one reason why I believe that two terms must be established as the limit by constitutional amendment.”  The 22nd Constitutional Amendment was introduced March 24, 1947 and became law on February 27, 1951.

Charles Ellis Schumer was born November 23, 1950, graduated as valedictorian, went on to Harvard and Harvard Law School and earned his law degree in 1974, passed the bar in 1975 but never practiced law. He was first elected in 1974 and has held elected office since then.   His only job outside of being an elected official was during high school.  (New York Senator Chuck Schumer actually worked for Kaplan – his first job – spinning off test prep materials on the mimeograph machine.)  Sen. Schumer’s father owned a small exterminating business that young Schumer thought was a huge albatross around his neck.   Obviously, it was hard work, long days, little time off as anyone who owns their own business knows.  That and his only job apparently soured the soon to be US Senator on being his own entrepreneur, like  Bill Gates, Peter Theil, Steve Jobs, Elon Musk,  and the countless others that have created businesses providing jobs for others.  Senator Charles Schumer never had to meet a payroll, pay for health insurance, create an atmosphere that supported what made the greatest nation in the world; he chose to be an elected official and tell us how we must use our hard earned paychecks…every day since 1974!

If ever there was a person that personified the need for term limits it is the current Majority Leader of the US Senate.
