Andrew Cuomo publishing a victory lap
book about coronavirus is a sick joke

Original Article

Second only to New Jersey in deaths per capita from the coronavirus, New York has suffered more than 32,000 deaths from the pandemic overall, roughly 20,000 more than any other state in the union. And unlike other states, New York's horrific death toll can be attributed to two specific decisions: first, Gov. Andrew Cuomo's refusal to shut down the New York City subway system, which functioned as a petri dish of the pandemic and became a main vector of its spread, and second, his disastrous nursing home directive which forced facilities to readmit patients who tested positive for the virus

Comments:

Gov. Caligula has gone mad.

Lawsuits for malfeasance, dereliction of duty (yes, governors have duty too), negligence, and disregard for public safety. Probably more than I can think of. The taxpayers of New York should not pay his legal fees either! That would be rubbing salt into the wounds! There should be enough citizens in the state to initiate a recall. Cuomo needs to be taken away from anything affecting the citizens.

I guess if I ever want to mismanage an epidemic and wind up with way more deaths than the average, I'll read Cuomo's book.

I hope Barr investigates what happened inNY,Michigan ,Connecticut and NJ. Was this an effort among Democrat governors to get rid of older citizens as Ezekiel Emmanuel preaches?

He probably considered the elderly to be conservatives and got rid of them. To think dead bodies were stacked up in tractor trailers or sent back to nursing homes to infect others is unforgivable. I signed the petition to recall him on Change.org.

Conflict Between Kamala Harris

When Kamala Harris takes the stage at the Democratic National Convention tonight, she’ll doubtless project an image of absolute harmony with presidential nominee Joe Biden, the man who has lifted her to newfound fame and potential great power. On Thursday night, Biden will glory in his history-making decision. The two candidates will bask in their mutual regard. But, if they’re elected, policy differences and irritations are going to arise. Vice presidents are politicians who usually got pretty far on their own, and they’re human beings; to constantly subordinate oneself to one’s boss requires exceptional discipline and self-effacement, something at which

The Army is launching an investigation into two soldiers who appeared in uniform during Democratic National Convention coverage Tuesday night, the service announced Wednesday. During the broadcast, two soldiers in uniform flanked officials from American Samoa while the territory awarded its delegates during the roll call at the Democratic National Convention. The appearance goes against Defense Department regulations, which prohibit all troops from being in uniform at partisan political or campaign events. Including uniformed military personnel in the video was an “oversight,” according to a Democratic Convention official. “Each state was asked to highlight issues and values that matter most

The Democratic National Convention formally nominated Joe Biden as its presidential candidate on Tuesday night, but the roll call of states and territories also included the votes for runner-up Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), a prominent Sanders supporter, seconded his nomination, and this is how NBC News recapped her short nominating speech: "In one of the shortest speeches of the DNC, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez did not endorse Joe Biden." After being criticized for political illiteracy, NBC News deleted the tweet and issued a clarification about how conventions work.

Defying the coronavirus pandemic’s mounting human and economic toll, stocks closed Tuesday at a record high, bringing an end to the shortest bear market in U.S. history. After notching three consecutive weeks of gains, the Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed at 3,389, gaining 0.2 percent on the day. The finish capped a remarkable comeback from the March plunge that slashed 34 percent off the previous record, set Feb. 19, as the pandemic tightened its grip on the country. Investors Tuesday brushed aside worries about the nation’s continuing struggle to contain the pandemic, focusing instead on signs of strength in

Three crew of a Seattle fishing boat who were found to have antibodies able to neutralise the new coronavirus remained uninfected in an outbreak that swept through the ship, sickening most people on board, researchers have reported. The small real-world study, which has not been peer-reviewed, is among the first in humans to suggest a link between neutralising antibodies -- those that stop the virus latching onto host cells -- and protection from infection. Researchers from the University of Washington and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle screened 120 of 122 people before they boarded the fishing vessel in May

Marks & Spencer has apologised after it was accused of "covert racism" over its bra colours. Kusi Kimani, 29, from East Sussex, was shocked when she discovered a brown bra on the retailer's website was called "tobacco". The lighter colours of the £12 Marks & Spencer Collection padded bras are described as "cinnamon" and "fudge". Ms Kimani complained about the bra for her skin tone carrying negative connotations, while more positive words were used for lighter colours. Yet two months on from her initial complaint, the bra is still being sold in a "tobacco" colour on the Marks & Spencer

SALT LAKE CITY — Par Kermani, a first-time delegate to the Democratic National Convention, said even though the four-day event that starts Monday to formally nominate former Vice President Joe Biden as the party’s presidential candidate is being held virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic, there may be a small part for him to play. “There is going to be ‘applause.’ We were asked — I’m not sure if I’m sure if I’m supposed to be saying this — but we were asked to send a video of us in kind of applauding, showing enthusiasm and excitement.

MILWAUKEE — The weekend before the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee was supposed to be full of activity. But the pandemic and a scaled-back convention has left downtown fairly quiet. "It's been a little quiet, honestly," said Corey Libermann. "We're from the Madison area and for us, we thought it would be a little bit more busy." (Snip) "It's a little eerie, we're kind of the only people that kind of came over here down this alleyway in front of the Bucks' stadium," Ghuman said.

The Democratic National Convention is set to begin on Monday, not that you would know it if you watched any of the Sunday shows. Despite the culmination of the highly publicized veepstakes succeeding in roiling media praise and a massive fundraising haul, Joe Biden and his newly announced running mate Kamala Harris have taken an unusually guarded approach to campaign coverage, even in the midst of a global pandemic forcing much of normal campaigning to go virtual. Biden's campaign strategy since locking down the nomination through waiting for the general election to begin in earnest has consisted largely of focus-group-tested

I saw a Tesla with #BlackLivesMatter written on the rear windshield the other day. It appeared to be a parent picking up their kid from a “pandemic pod,” which, if you’re not familiar, is a small cluster of families who pool resources to hire a private tutor, who may be a parent. These pods are very popular among my neighbors in the Bay Area of California. Nearby I could see a YMCA, which provides child care and after-school programming. It had shut down due to COVID-19. I’m not the first to point out that pods are emblematic of educational inequity

More Americans approve than disapprove of Joe Biden's choice of Sen. Kamala Harris for the 2020 Democratic ticket by a 25-point margin, 54-29%, in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll. Approval of the pick ranges from 86-8% among Democrats to 25-55% among Republicans -- notable that one in four Republicans approves. It's 52-29% among independents, potential swing voters in presidential elections. While reaction to Harris is broadly positive, the margin narrows among those who have strong opinions. Thirty-four percent of Americans strongly approve of her selection, while 22% strongly disapprove, a 12-point margin. One reason is that her strong support

In her Wednesday DNC convention speech, Hillary Clinton implied that a “foreign adversary” could sway the U.S. elections, and suggested that an electoral college victory without a corresponding popular vote win would render the victor’s election illegitimate. “Vote for honest elections, so we, not a foreign adversary, choose our president,” Clinton implored viewers. “And don’t forget, Joe and Kamala can win by three million votes and still lose–take it from me. So we need numbers [to be] overwhelming so Trump can’t sneak or steal his way to victory.” Since losing the 2016 election, Clinton has repeatedly implied that President Trump has colluded with Russia both during and after his election victory.

Michelle Obama famously said, “When they go low, we go high.” She should have reminded her husband before he gave his speech for the online Democrat convention. Standing in a room in Philadelphia, with the words “Writing the Constitution” over his right shoulder, Obama gave a speech that almost wholly ignored Biden, whom he’d ostensibly come to praise. Instead, Obama viciously attacked Trump and did a constitutional rewrite that allowed him to cast Trump as a constitutional threat. From the start, Obama was up to his old tricks. Even while he wanted to use the Constitution to challenge Trump, he couldn’t praise it.

Goodyear clarified its policy on acceptable workplace attire on Thursday, one day after reports that one of its facilities in Topeka, Kansas had banned “Make America Great Again” and “Blue Lives Matter” apparel which prompted President Trump to call for a boycott of the Ohio-based company. Goodyear Chairman and CEO Rich Kramer said the slide from a presentation at the Topeka plant “was not approved or distributed by Goodyear Corporate or anyone outside of that facility.” The company has clarified its policy to inform employees that they can “express support for law enforcement through apparel at Goodyear facilities," but are asked to "refrain" from wearing apparel of a political nature.

Cindy McCain is going to bat for Joe Biden, lending her voice to a video set to air during Tuesday night’s Democratic National Convention programming focused on Biden’s close friendship with her late husband, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona. She’s just the latest Republican to join in the convention, after a number of notable GOP former elected officials — including former Ohio Gov. John Kasich — endorsed the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee on Monday night. It’s a continuation of a major theme that Democrats have pushed through the first night of the convention — an effort to broaden the party’s appeal to occasional Republicans and disaffected Trump voters.

Portland police declared yet another riot Tuesday night on the 83rd consecutive day of protests after a 200-strong mob of protesters torched the city's famous Multnomah Building. The group had marched to the county seat of government for the first time, smashing windows and sparking a blaze by pushing lit newspapers through the windows. One image shows the protesters had marked a window to the building with the graffiti: 'Aim here.' Demonstrations that often turn violent have racked Oregon's biggest city for more than two months following the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
The Curious Problem of Obesity

In a recent OpEd from The Guardian, author Larry Elliot opines on the frequency of obesity among low-income households in the U.K., and points out that the problem “in the U.S. mirrors that of the U.K.” Elliot goes on to proclaim, that, “there will be less obesity when people can afford to eat better.” The premise is that poor folks are victims of one injustice or another; in Elliot’s case, he claims they are unable to afford healthy food. This notion has been floating around for several years now, particularly as it relates to children, and is one that is frequently parroted by the left in America.
