Governor Cuomo thought the applause was for him…

The Syracuse Post Star’s editorial simply says “NY must own nursing home mistakes, learn from them” and we couldn’t agree more.  We cannot go back in time and hold our loved ones as they suffered from this deadly disease, but we certainly can learn from the mistakes made and never, ever repeat them.  Governor Andrew Cuomo is deflecting blame to President Trump; however, it was the Department of Health that issued a mandate on March 25 that required nursing homes to admit/readmit CIVOD-19 patients.  We ask that AG William Barr investigate what led NY to have an extremely high number of nursing home deaths, and if you haven’t signed our petition to AG Barr, please do so now.  The more signatures obtained, the louder our voices will be, please circulate to friends and family to also sign.  Thank you.

Here are the clips for Governor Cuomo’s pressers on May 22, May 23, May 24, May 25 and May 26.  (Caution, do not watch all of them one after another, listening to his self-congratulations and blaming others will wonder if you are in never-never land.  He continues his swipe at the federal government, President Trump, and blames them for not closing down Europe, albeit, we did know and it was well publicized that nursing homes were extremely susceptible to the rapid spread of COVID-19, a fact completely ignored when demanding nursing homes take COVID-19 patients back.)

Chairman Kassar reflects on Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend

This is not the Memorial Day weekend I, or anyone else, imagined we would be having, but American’s are resilient and our resolve will get us beyond the health crisis that has affected countless New Yorker’s.

Resiliency is a quality in Americans, one that goes back generations and generations.  Resilient men and woman have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. From the Civil War to today’s conflicts, Americans have always answered the call to protect our great nation from enemies both foreign and domestic, many paying the ultimate price.

This Memorial Day, as we continue to face daily struggles, changes, and complications brought on by COVID19, take a moment to remember this is not our first conflict, and it will not be our last.  We have the greatest military in the world, comprised of the bravest men and women in the world. Through them, we have helped rid the world of tyranny and oppression. I am forever grateful for their efforts, both past and present, who’s selflessness allows me the freedoms to write this message to you today.

Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to those we have lost in battle. It is my hope that we continue to honor their memories by continuing to stand up for our freedoms as Americans and never take for granted that we do live in the greatest nation in the world.

Please, have a safe Memorial Day weekend, and do not lose sight of what this weekend is really about.

The Conservative Party traditionally has made a special effort to remember the POW’S and MIA’S whose remains have yet to return to U.S. soil. Please, say a special prayer for them.

Fly your American flag today and everyday in honor of our glorious nation.

NYC desperately needs a smart reopening.  

Pick me, Pick me! I want to be one of the 10!

Governor Cuomo’s presser on Wednesday certainly had an eye-opener that begs the question, if only 10 people are allowed to attend religious observations, who chooses the 10 people allowed to attend?  Has Governor Cuomo attended church lately?  The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, near the Executive Mansion, can hold approximately 1000 people and yet Gov. Cuomo thinks only 10 should be able to attend.  How did you arrive at only 10 people, Governor?  Mindboggling.  Is there a limit for the big-box stores?  Grocery stores?  In NYC the grocery stores are not as big as the Cathedral and I’m pretty sure there are more than 10 people in the store at the same time.  But the micromanager-in-chief has decreed only 10 people can attend religious services.

I’m also surprised that Governor Cuomo continues to speak down to those who listen.  He said he must explain social distancing to the communities hardest hit by COVID-19.   He also noted that government cannot mandate behavior…well, if one states a business will lose their license to do business, how is that not mandating the owner’s behavior?  Hopefully these updates will end soon.  (Gov. Cuomo noted he hates to repeat himself…perhaps, he should listen to these pressers.)  If you listen, and you should listen to the pressers, you will hear him AGAIN defend his handling of the number of deaths in New York’s nursing homes.  Be prepared, it is difficult to stay calm as his arrogance displays itself.

Today’s presser with Governor Cuomo.  (BTW, he keeps repeating himself and telling us how great a job he is doing.)  Cuomo is confused by all the different things we are learning about COVID-19 and slams the feds again for giving non-accurate information from the very beginning…. like letting Europeans into America.  I guess he just wants the first reaction, and then let everything stay exactly as the first reaction was reported.  Don’t keep studying the situation, don’t learn new things.  Obviously, Gov. Cuomo, is not a student of science, if we live in his narrow non-scientific world, Columbus would not have sailed across the ocean to discover a whole new world, Dr. Salk would never have discovered a vaccination to eliminate polio and John Glenn would not have gone into outer space, just to name a few things.

Words of wisdom from Walter E. Williams.

Is the pressure to reopen New York getting to Governor Cuomo?

Governor Andrew Cuomo continued his attack on the federal government again at today’s presser.  While not being specific (as to whom he is blaming), he continually reminds every who will listen that no one (who should have known) said the virus was in Europe, only China, and that the coronavirus that hit New York so hard was from Europe.  Obviously, he is saying that he had no way of preventing the unusually high number of deaths because the virus was from Europe, not China as the federal government said.

As you listen to today’s presser, you, like me, will hear how these pressers are no longer about informing the public about coronavirus; they are now about going after federal bailouts and how the corporations are getting all the benefits.  Again, slamming the feds for not bailing out states that have not been prudent with their finances throughout the years and now the police, fire and teachers will have to be cut.  Then he has the audacity to say this should not be a political process.  Oh, and if you didn’t know, Andrew Cuomo is the vice president of the National Governor’s Association, a fact that he has worked into his presentation for about a week now.   Wow, the digs at Trump are not as subtle as in the past.  Today he said “you have to be smart… (to be in government) and followed up with “you’re not going to tweet your way through this.”  Andrew Cuomo fancies himself as a national figure and yearns for the office of United States President.  (While he won’t admit it, what he really desires is to be elected to a higher office than dear old dad was…so pitiful.)  Someone should tell Governor Cuomo that he really should not do daily updates and more; they are boring and his platform will ultimately show the nation that he is not ready for prime time…on second thought, he may be ready for the comedy channel as he tries so hard to let people think he can be funny.  BTW, who was that “unbiased” reporter that asked the Governor a question at the 33.03 mark?  Andrew Cuomo answers her allegations with a totally political answer.   Governor Cuomo was correct when he said answered a question that included this gem, “we do not have that kind of relationship (with the feds) that they are looking for gratuitous advice from me.”

A piece of advice, Governor: one can never really walk back a thoughtless, heartless comment.

This is very interesting.  I can’t help but think that Erie County was just granted a coronavirus “Buffalo Billion” gift.  I have no problem with Buffalo/Erie County in starting Phase 1, but it is also very important for all of New York to reopen.  Please tell me that Governor Cuomo isn’t still playing favorites with Buffalo.

Perhaps, Gov. Cuomo is just coming to the realization that he has been too heavy handed on the reopening:  Cuomo reopening Albany region, allowing small Memorial Day gatherings

Assemblyman Gottfried repeats his call for a truly independent probe of the nursing home coronavirus crisis.  We agree – truly independent so please sign our petition calling on Attorney General William Barr to investigate the many errors that contributed to the 5500 plus deaths in NY’s nursing homes.

Gov. Cuomo proves he has little respect for life at its beginning and at its end.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home crisis intensified over the weekend with these news reports:  Soaring nursing home coronavirus deaths don’t match official NY state tallies; MANY NURSING HOMES PURPOSEFULLY UNDERREPORT COVID-19 DEATHS, SOURCES SAY; Who Sent COVID-19 Positive Patients Into Nursing Homes?; Cuomo Defends Nursing Home Policy: ‘Older People, Vulnerable People Are Going to Die.’ What really attracted national attention was Sunday’s presser when King Cuomo responded to a question with, “How do we get justice…who can we prosecute?  People are going to die…the heath care wants for nothing…Older people are going to die…despite all that you do.”  You really have to listen to the condescending tone as he speaks.  To hear him say “older people are going to die, no matter what you do” knowing full well that his Commissioner of Health required nursing homes to admit/readmit COVID-19 patients on March 25 is beyond belief.  How does the governor sleep at night?  I really should not be that shocked knowing that he has no respect for life which he made painfully clear when he signed a bill that is a death warrant on innocent unborn lives on January 22, 2019 with a huge smile.

Gov. Cuomo’s presser today, was not quite as outrageous as yesterdays.  It does, however, show just how far the governor will go to find a doctor that promotes the facts that Gov. Cuomo wants to hear.  Dr. Bhett is a leading geo-statistician at the Imperial College of London and appeared to be thrilled that Gov. Cuomo was following his statistical models and how Gov. Cuomo is following his guidelines.  Cuomo insists “It all about the math…that is how the future will be determined, especially with reopening New York.  However, we will never go back, we must advance and go forward and overcome what has happened.” Gov. Cuomo says that is the American story; we will overcome and be better because of what we have gone through.  He is right about that; we will be stronger because we will NOT be kept under his thumb for much longer.  We are Americans, and we, the people, run the government.  Gov. Cuomo continues to hold pressers and throw his set of “facts” around controlling the opening of New York.  As the weather improves and as other states show his set of “facts” are incomplete and set forward to control human beings, he will come to the realization that we, the people, are strong and will rise up as Americans have always done.  The world speaks English for a reason, Gov. Cuomo.

Justice Prevails for General Flynn

It is beyond a shadow of a doubt a crime was indeed committed, but not by General Michael Flynn.

On Wednesday, acting Director of National Intelligence, Rich Grenell, released a list of 23 Obama Administration officials who allegedly worked to reveal General Flynn’s identity through the process known as “unmasking” (revealing their identity).

On that list of names, Joe Biden.

An outgoing vice president has no business unmasking an individual named in a raw intelligence report, particularly when that person has served his country honorably for decades and is the presumptive National Security Advisor for an incoming president of the opposing political party.

The fact that we are only learning this now demands the attention of the American people, regardless of political affiliation.  Seven unmasking requests were made by top Obama Administration officials between November 30, 2016 and Jan. 11, 2017, when President Donald Trump took office, in a clear attempt to find or manufacture dirt on General Michael Flynn, a prominent Trump supporter and advisor during the 2016 campaign. That speaks volumes.

So does Mr. Biden’s blatant mistruth this week in denying that he was aware of an unmasking in which he was intimately involved.  Of course, he was aware — he was part of it.

The more one looks at what happened to General Flynn, the clearer his railroading by leading Democrat operatives becomes.  A full and immediate investigation is required.  The American public needs to know why the Democratic nominee for president just got caught lying.

Cuomo Reverses Deadly Nursing Home Order

 After issuing an order to admit COVID-19 patients into nursing homes, Governor Cuomo has withdrawn the order in an attempt to slow down the spread of the virus amongst our most vulnerable population.

On March 25, the New York State Department of Health issued an order stating “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”

Chaos followed that order and we have seen over 5,300 nursing home deaths throughout New York State, accounting for nearly 30% of all the total COVID-19 fatalities; a majority of which could have been avoided had the Governor, and his Health Department, used common sense.

While I am glad the order has finally been reversed, I am saddened and deeply troubled that this order was not just put into motion, but that it was even considered in the first place.

The Governor had been under extreme pressure to reverse this order, much of it coming from the Conservative Party, and you, who signed our petition and spoke out against the lunacy.

The party continues to call for an independent investigation into the gross negligence regarding what happened in our nursing homes.

Please sign our petition if you have not done so already.

Governor Cuomo: New Yorker’s need answers as the nursing home crisis gets deeper.

The NYS nursing home crisis just became more heart wrenching…and disturbing!  The NY Times is reporting that the Cuomo Administration inserted a provision to a pending budget bill protecting nursing homes from lawsuits over their failure to protect residents from death or sickness caused by the coronavirus.  This is very disturbing considering that the NYS Department of Health issued a directive on  March 25 (rolled back just last week) that bars nursing homes from refusing to admit “medically stable” coronavirus patients.

On April 20, the NY Post reported that Gov. Cuomo said he didn’t know anything about the directive.  On April 23, Gov. Cuomo said:  Nursing homes have ‘no right’ to reject coronavirus patients with a caveat that if they couldn’t handle the medical needs nursing homes should contact the state for help. On May 13, Gov. Cuomo said ‘We did everything we could,’ regarding of nursing home crisis that saw 5K deaths

As one follows the news on the horrific number of COVID-19 deaths it becomes apparent that many mistakes have been made…there are no guidelines for a pandemic this invasively deadly.  It was apparent from the very beginning that we were in uncharted waters.  Knowing this does not excuse the fatal errors made.

Did Governor Andrew Cuomo anticipate or know just how devastating the coronavirus would be when he slipped protections for nursing homes and the health care industry into the budget on April 2. Why wouldn’t families be given the opportunity to bring their loved ones home?  The NY Times article begs the question:  What did Governor Cuomo know and most importantly why did he not tell us?  Why was the provision to safeguard nursing homes quietly submitted into an obscure voluminous budget bill?  If it was that imperative to pass, why wasn’t it a stand-alone bill that would be discussed on the floor by all the members?  How many times does legislation rushed through have to have detrimental effects before legislators learn not to rush legislation?  Governor Cuomo, how many patients died needlessly and now their families have limited options to sue because your administration slipped in this provision on April 2 the same day it was voted on?

Sign our petition for an independent investigation into the nursing home crisis here.

Gov. Cuomo is praising Speaker Pelosi’s Bill that is a progressive’s dream.  You really must listen to his praise of the $3 trillion Bill and the need to get out of this highly partisan moment.  Wow, he speaks of how terrible it was that we were caught so short-handed in having enough medical equipment.  Governor,  shouldn’t your Commissioner of the Department of Health let you know we had a problem, after all, you have been governor since January 1, 2011 with democrats in control of the Executive Branch since Jan. 2007.  Alert:  Towards the end of the presser, Gov. Cuomo states that a business will re-open at their own peril…unless, of course, one had a friend that slipped a provision at the last minute to the budget.   

Bob McManus says:  Andrew Cuomo has better ways to get federal aid than issuing threats.

 STATEMENT BY CONSERVATIVE PARTY CHAIRMAN GERARD KASSAR ON OBAMA-BIDEN ‘UNMASKING OF GEN. FLYNN

Brooklyn, NY  – “An outgoing vice president has no business unmasking an individual named in a raw intelligence report, particularly when that person has served his country honorably for decades and is the presumptive National Security Advisor for an incoming president of the opposing political party.

“The fact that we are only learning this now demands the attention of the American people, regardless of political affiliation.  Seven unmasking requests were made by top Obama Administration officials between November 30, 2016 and Jan. 11, 2017, when President Donald Trump took office, in a clear attempt to find or manufacture dirt on General Michael Flynn, a prominent Trump supporter and advisor during the 2016 campaign.

Assemblyman Gottfried makes a strong case for an independent investigation of New York’s nursing home crisis.

Assemblyman Richard Gottfried, long time chairman of the Assembly Health Committee, is right when he notes that AG James and the Department of Health are not the right entities to investigate the high number of nursing homes deaths in New York State.  Tom Precious’s article in the Buffalo News is excellent in pointing out the background that has led to numerous calls for an independent investigation.  The Conservative Party urges you to join our efforts to have Attorney General William Barr investigate this heart wrenching additional crisis in New York.

Gee, Senator Schumer did Dr. Fauci let you down?  Dr. Fauci Dismisses Narrative of ‘Confrontational’ Relationship with President Trump in Question from Sen. Loeffler.

Oh my, Gov. Cuomo is calling for a federal bill that has no handouts for “greedy corporations.”  Gov. why is it okay for greedy states?  You started the year with a $6 billion deficit and offered a budget that did not close the deficit, made smoke and mirror adjustments, knew about coronavirus, closed down New York’s’ economy, you continue to keep it closed (despite the fact that even your facts have 66% of the newest cases among people who are staying home) and expect the federal government to bail you out?  Where are the feds supposed to get the money from?  We all pay federal, state, and local taxes, every family pays all taxes and every level is losing income.  So, every level will have to make the sacrifices.  He mentions education, see the paragraph above on how much NY spends on education.  And unfortunately, our students do not reflect the fact that New Yorkers pay 91% more than the national average.  The simple fact is New York spends too much from A to Z, from Montauk Point to Buffalo, in every aspect of NY government.  While I am at, why aren’t NY’s gasoline taxes fixing New York’s infrastructure?  Without a doubt, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, inherited his father’s gift of speaking…and the inability to truly understand how to be a fiscally responsible politician.

BTW, Governor Cuomo, yes,  it is true that emergency personnel wear protection while working with COVID-19 patients which certainly is one explanation why they are getting the virus at a lower rate, but, it can also be that because they are exposed to the virus they may be building up antibodies.   If we use the time from now to the fall, perhaps we can escape a second deadly wave by being exposed also; a naturally occurring “vaccination.”

 

Governor Cuomo’s rules … how long will New Yorkers abide by the ever-changing rules.

Today’s NY Post editorial:  Gov. Cuomo admits he was wrong to order nursing homes to accept coronavirus patients.  Gov. Cuomo admits he was wrong?  Did we read that right?  “Gov. Andrew Cuomo has finally admitted — tacitly and partially, anyway — the mistake that was state health chief Howard Zucker’s order that nursing homes must admit coronavirus-positive patients.”  Ah, the key words are “tacitly and partially,” that makes more sense because we all know that Gov. Cuomo seldom says he is wrong.  As the NY Post front page notes: 5,200 deaths too late.

Cuomo’s nursing home reversal is too little, too late for those now dead: Goodwin

The Real Center of the Pandemic.

King Andrew is still moving the goal posts.  Any questions that he may have changed his mind, just watch today’s daily presser here.  Today’s presser also continues to deflect blame on why New York’s COVID-19 numbers are so high.  He reiterates that during January, February and March hundreds of thousands of people landed at JFK and Newark from Europe who must have been sick without the experts (while not saying the Trump Administration, but certainly implying it) did not sound the alarm and did not stop travel from Europe until COVID-19 was established here.  Experts may agree that the COVID-19 on the east coast is from Europe; however, it does not mitigate the fact that sick patients were sent to nursing homes where everyone knew it would spread like fire through dry grass.  Sign our petition here.

Governor Cuomo will keep us in PAUSE if we let him.  The democratic controlled Legislature gave him the ability to do as he deems fit while they avoid Albany and are content letting him use his bully pulpit to frighten the citizens of New York.  Last week he noted 66% of all new hospitalizations were people sheltering place and fewer NY healthcare workers are being infected with COVID-19 compared to public.  Andrew Cuomo, it is time to follow the facts.  Stop moving the goal posts and let people get back to work.

Chairman Kassar’s wrap-up includes Governor Cuomo wanting out-of-state health care workers to pay-up, China’s cover up and the Dept. of Labor still leaving New Yorker’s stranded.

  Cuomo To Out of State Health Care Workers: PAY UP!

 Health care workers who selflessly traveled to New York to assist in the fight against COVID-19 are getting a very warm welcoming from Governor Cuomo: state taxes.

Medical professionals from around the country that answered the Governors call for help will pay taxes on income, even if they were only making money in the states they came from.

Cuomo, who has been begging the Federal Government for a bailout from the financial crisis he, and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio created, has unconscionably decided to raid the pockets of those who came to New York to save lives.

“We’re not in a position to provide any more subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit, “ Governor Cuomo said Tuesday.

Governor Cuomo has been shaking down New York taxpayers leading to mass outmigration. Now, he’s found a way to punish taxpayers who don’t even live in New York State. Their only crime, spending more than 14 days in New York saving lives.

In true Cuomo fashion, he continues to blame everyone else for his administrations’ runaway spending and bloated state budget. This is no way to treat individuals who sacrificed their own health to protect New York residents.

Communist China’s Cover-up

 United States Government officials have reason to believe the Communist Party of China covered up the deadly extent of COVID-19, allowing themselves to stockpile much needed medical supplies, knowing how contagious and easily spread the disease was.

A report released by the Department of Homeland Security Intelligence last week concludes leaders of China’s Communist Party “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic.

The report goes on to say China also delayed critical information to the World Health Organization while their orders and imports of protective masks, plastic gloves and surgical gowns grew at a rapid rate.

The United States and China have been at odds over the coronavirus epidemic as the U.S. and other countries continue to investigate China’s downplaying of the virus and failure to properly notify world leaders.

While the Chinese government insists they have been transparent, Beijing continues to be adamantly opposed to an independent international inquiry into COVID-19.

The Coronavirus brought the world to its knees and as we continue to rebuild our global economy following the shutdown, it is imperative the Chinese government cooperate with investigators to get to the bottom of what happened and work to prevent future health pandemics.

Cuomo’s Department of Labor Leaving New Yorker’s Stranded

 New York residents have been holding up their end of the bargain since the beginning of the states shutdown. They’ve closed their businesses, stayed home, and distanced themselves from loved ones and friends. Now, it is time New York hold up their end of the deal and deliver the unemployment benefits so many New Yorker’s are still without.

Governor Cuomo’s Department of Labor has failed to provide it’s citizens with much needed funds, while providing very little information as to when businesses can start to open, putting employees back to work.

“Especially troubling is the reality that under current conditions, these claims may be pending for several more weeks. These individuals have already waited, in some cases, months, with little information,” Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay said. “By not getting their money in a timely manner, New York State is failing them,” he added.

Governor Cuomo’s years of financial mismanagement had us ill-prepared for the doomsday type scenario we are currently experiencing with the shutdown of our state economy.  With a budget deficit of more than $13 billion, a state spending 89% more per student than the national average, a Labor Department failing to provide aid to New Yorker’s who are still forced to keep businesses closed and employees home, it is clear this catastrophe is too big for Governor Cuomo.

His reckless spending and failure to get the state budget under control years prior to this crisis, has left New Yorker’s financially crippled, led by an administration who’s only plan appears to be begging Washington for more money.

De Blasio Warns First Responders May Be Laid Off If Bailout Doesn’t Come.

Governor Cuomo says “all human life has the same value”… but he has yet to prove that he believes what he says.

Long Island calls for federal probe into coronavirus deaths at nursing homes; if you agree that a federal investigation is necessary, please sign our petition here.

Yesterday, Gov. Cuomo was surprised that 66% of COVID-19 patients were staying at home and today he said NYC healthcare workers catch coronavirus at below-average rate.  So staying at home doesn’t really help and perhaps the exposure to COVID-19 helps build a better immunity to the virus.  So, the obvious question to Governor Cuomo is:  Why is all of New York State still in lockdown with little hope of it ending soon?

Science and the Constitution say: End the lockdowns.

The Worldwide Lockdown May Be the Greatest Mistake in History.

Over Half of U.S. Counties Have Had No COVID-19 Deaths.

Now we know why Gov. Cuomo keeps stressing in his daily briefings that no one knew that COVID-19 came to New York via Europe and that closing down flights from China did not stop COVID-19 (ultimately trying to deflect blame back to President Trump while attempting to lay out a defense for him and reluctantly to de Blasio.)

While expensive, this is the next must have for every hospital.  I wonder if George Soros, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos or Mark Zuckerberg would be willing to purchase some for nursing homes and hospitals.  Perhaps, since Gov. Cuomo said today that “all human life has the same value” and we must “protect human life” he would consider having his campaign fund make a donation so some nursing homes can purchase some, or host a fundraiser with all proceeds going to the purchase of some for nursing homes.  I think it is the least he can do considering how many human lives have been lost in nursing homes under his watch.

You Can Observe a Lot by Just Watching.

Mr. Mayor:  why dodge the question?   De Blasio dodges questions on using coronavirus crisis to overhaul schools.  Unless, of course, you believe that Richard Carranza’s message to NYC kids: Working hard is for suckers is a good message to send to our youth.  (Knowing your history, you do.)

Cuomo encourages voters use absentee ballots as judge reinstates New York Democratic presidential primary, but, it may not happen since New York state appeals ruling requiring it to hold June Democratic primary.
