Is Cuomo opening day camps to bailout camp owner and Dem party chief Jay Jacobs?


Programs for special needs children will remain closed.

From John Gilmore

June 3, 2020 — New York’s schools are still closed. There won’t be summer school. Special needs children are not receiving home services they are entitled to, or year-round programs required by federal law, but yesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo decided to allow day camps to open this summer. Why the inconsistency?

Could it be that Cuomo is helping out his close political ally Jay Jacobs, owner of three very expensive day camps on Long Island? Jacobs owns Timber Lake Camps which runs three day camps, North Shore Day Camp, Hampton Country Day Camp and South Hampton Day Camp.  Jacobs is also the Chair of the New York State Democratic Committee, and the Chair of the Nassau County Democratic Committee, in short he is the head of Democratic Party in NY next to Cuomo.

 Why don’t you ask them. If rich kids can go to day camp why can’t special needs children get the services and school programs they are entitled to?

Cuomo will not run for President

He will be the New York Vaccine Czar

May 31, 2020 — Back on March 8th I ran a report titled Coronavirus Hysteria is About Force Vaccinating Adults. Less than 3 months later – while the country is reeling from riots – the New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) is pushing for forced vaccination of every New Yorker with the COVID-19 vaccine. It is clear as day the only man with the gravitas to enforce such unconstitutional insanity is Governor Andrew Cuomo. In fact, Cuomo has already volunteered New Yorkers as lab rats for COVID on April 15th when he said our state would gladly be “the laboratory” for experimental vaccines.

With his Dictator powers lasting until April of 2021, and dangerous fast-tracked COVID vaccines said to be available in the fall of 2020, if Cuomo leaves the Governor’s office there is no one who will have a shot at enforcing such a Draconian dictate. I believe Cuomo is going to fail at this, but he’s the only person with any shot. He’s already proven his allegiance to Big Pharma.

Back on June 13, 2019 Cuomo orchestrated the repeal of the Religious Exemption to vaccination in New York for children to attend school. The law was repealed in under 7 hours with absolutely no public comment from New York citizens. Few people recognized just how significant and horrifying that day truly was.

I recognized it.

It laid the groundwork for what we are facing now – forced vaccination of the entire New York populace, both children and adults. It is of interest that Senator Brad Hoylman – who sponsored the repeal of the Religious Exemption to vaccination – also supports forcing every New Yorker to inject the COVID-19 vaccine. Hoylman is up for reelection on June 23rd.

People in Manhattan need to VOTE HOYLMAN OUT!

The President of the United States ultimately has very little say in local vaccine mandates, as it is a power that was not specifically given to the federal government in the Constitution. Therefore the power resides with the States for each state to do as they see fit. Normally it would be the entire legislature in Albany that would determine if mandatory vaccination of every New Yorker would become law. But today Cuomo has the power to force vaccinate every New Yorker with the mere stroke of his pen!

Governor Cuomo is operating under an emergency powers declaration – S7919 – which allows him to create or remove any law that he declares is standing in the way of addressing the COVID-19 situation. Now that the NYSBA is giving their legal opinion that forced vaccination of every New Yorker should happen, and is legal, there is no way Cuomo is leaving New York to slight his buddy Sleepy Joe Biden and face Trump.

No way.

Just watch Cuomo everyday in his press conferences. The man simply LOVES being “King of New York” far too much. New York is very important to Big Pharma. I’ve received emails from all over the country and the world saying all eyes are on NY & NYC as we battle for medical freedom. The problem is that of the nearly 20 million New Yorkers many millions of us will not take the COVID-19 vaccine no matter what. How many exactly are there who will refuse? 1 million? 2 mil? 3 mil? 5? 10 ???

I’m really not sure.

The question is whether New York has reached a totalitarian tyranny where the will of millions simply won’t matter. I do not think we have reached that point yet. Do you?

Stay tuned.

The Nightmare of a Cuomo Presidency

From John Gilmore

Autism Action Network

Just when you think things are as bizarre as they can get something happens that moves the goal post. One of the latest political twists is the budding effort to dump Joe Biden as the presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. When the New York Times runs editorials entitled, “Democrats, It’s Time to Consider Plan B” those efforts must be taken seriously.  

    This Action Alert is not about the merits of either Joe Biden, or the 1993 accusation of sexual assault leveled at him by former employee, Tara Reade, that is the ostensible reason for the need for Plan B. It is about who is “Plan B.” And the mostly likely Plan B for the Democrats, at this time, appears to be New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo is currently riding high in the polls based on his daily television appearances, as opposed to his dismal real-world performance,  on the corona crisis. Cuomo has said he is not interested in running for President this year, but there are many people, some with a great deal of clout in the Democratic Party, who would love to see him replace Biden on the top of the ticket.

    The Autism Action Network focuses on issues that impact people dealing with autism and similar developmental disabilities, and vaccine rights. In those policy areas Cuomo has been a disaster for some of the most vulnerable people in New York, and we expect that if he was ever elected President he would replicate on the national level the policies he has implemented as Governor.

     Cuomo is responsible for repealing New York’s religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school. As late as April in the 2019 legislative session Cuomo appeared to have a hands-off approach on a longstanding bill to repeal New York’s religious exemption, he even questioned the constitutionality of such a move. During the last week of the session, just days before for repeal was passed, Albany insiders said there were insufficient votes to pass the bill, but then on June 12, Merck announced a $48 million development deal in the Albany area, Cuomo suddenly committed his full clout to passing the bill. Deals were cut, arms were twisted, and enough votes were squeezed out of the Assembly to pass the bill. No hearings were held by either House. And in a single day on June 13, the Assembly Health Committee passed the bill (after Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie forced a junior member to change his vote when the measured initially failed), the bill passed on the Assembly floor,  the Senate Health Committee didn’t even bother to vote on the measure, it went straight to a floor vote held behind doors closed to the public, and Cuomo signed the bill into law 15 minutes after the Senate voted.

    Two weeks later implementation of the law began with throwing any not fully vaccinated disabled students out of their summer school programs. Fourteen (14) days. When California passed a similar law, parents were given up to 7 years to make alternate arrangements, in Maine three years.

   A few months later, in August, Cuomo rewrote the already stringent regulations and policies for obtaining a medical exemption to a vaccine. Now the only way to get a medical exemption is if a child has already had a documented near-death anaphylactic shock as the result of a previous vaccine. If a doctor believes a vaccine could injure a child there is no mechanism to protect the child. It only exists now as a means to prevent re-injury in limited circumstances. Fortunately, a number of recent court rulings are indicating that Cuomo’s regulation is illegal and could be overturned shortly.

    Cuomo has a similarly dismal record on autism and developmental disabilities.  Since 2011, when he first assumed office Cuomo, has slashed the budget of the primary state agency in New York that deals with developmental disabilities (Office of People with Developmental Disabilities) by more than 50% while the overall state budget has increased by 35%.

    As a result of the cuts disabled students aging out of schools usually have no services of any kind for a year or two. Processing times for new applications for disability services are usually 2 to 3 years now. An application submitted by Assemblyman Tom Abinanti for his disabled son took over a year to process. This is in a state among the top two or three in combined income, sales and property tax burdens.

     Cuomo closed the few remaining large residential institutions for people with developmental disabilities but did not replace them with any alternative housing, despite an annual 7% growth rate in the number of adults with development disabilities. Waiting times for adult placements in group homes is now more than 10 years.

    Since he came into office the rates of pay for therapists and teachers working in New York’s Early Intervention program for children less the 3 years old has remained the same. In fact, they haven’t got a raise since 1994, but Cuomo gave himself a 40% raise.  As a result of the low rates of pay some counties no longer have functioning programs, denying children with autism access to crucial services at the time of life when they can benefit the most from intervention.

     Cuomo placed a 2% annual cap on school budgets, which are determined locally, at a time when autism rates among students have increased at an average rate of about 13% per year, resulting in severe pressure on special education budgets which have not been matched by funding from the State.

     And, believe it or not, there has been no mechanism to investigate and prosecute crimes committed against residents of group homes and residential schools or facilities since the “New York Justice Center for People with Special Needs,” an agency created by Cuomo in response to a spate of scandals, was ruled un-Constitutional by the Courts in 2017. Cuomo has taken no action to replace or reform the agency to make it Constitutional. And Cuomo has done nothing to correct that for three years. In New York now there is no way, for example, to investigate and prosecute a sexual assault of a resident of a group home. Yet at the same time Cuomo was caught secretly placing convicted sex offenders in group homes for the disabled.

     It is hard to imagine a worse record on our issues. But that’s Andrew Cuomo. And he could be the Democrats “Plan B.”

Medical Fascism is HERE in NY

Know your bottom line and know it now!

May 1, 2020 — Governor Cuomo’s emergency powers have allowed him to hold New York hostage and now he is extorting us into accepting new public health laws that never would have been legally passed by the legislative body. Those new rules are in Cuomo’s “guidelines” for a phased reopening and the worst of them deal with contact tracing (which I cover below) and quarantine isolation measures (which I’ve already covered at this blog).

As James Corbett has recently stated on multiple occasions during his Corbett Report broadcast, everyone needs to know what their bottom line is and know it now! Will you take a forced vaccine? Will you answer questions when state officials call you and demand to know all of the “contacts” you made in the last 2 weeks? Will you go get tested for COVID when you feel completely fine but The State says you have to go get tested? Will you leave your home when local officials come to force you to be quarantined in isolation away from your family? Are you ready-and-willing to be arrested for defying any of these state-ordered mandates? No one can answer these questions for you; only you can do that, and you must do so now.

New York is the model for the rest of the country, and you will see this roll out in many other states as well. The more liberty-oriented states will resist this medical fascism; some will be successful, some will not. Recently in Michigan their House of Representatives refused to give another 28 days of emergency powers to their governor Gretchen Whitmer. That’s how checks-and-balances work in a Constitutional Republic. In New York we threw that safe-guard right out the window and anointed #DictatorCuomo until April of 2021. The New York legislature is too scared to oppose Cuomo and really represent the people. They are more comfortable bowing to #KingCuomo and wiping their hands of their responsibility to govern.


Benito Mussolini has been quoted as saying Fascism is the marriage of state and corporate power. That is what we are seeing here. Cuomo is not calling the shots. Other interests representing the most powerful Big Tech & Big Pharma forces on the planet have his ear, and those forces have co-written or completely written these new Fascist laws that will never go away unless WE THE PEOPLE force those laws out of existence. YES, as New York reopens for business we should use respect and caution in how that process unfolds. NO, we should not be accepting Medical-Fascism that resembles China far more than the Constitutional United States of America.


Former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg – the eighth richest man on the planet according to Forbes – has teamed up with John’s Hopkins University to help unleash an “army” of contact tracers in New York that will number 6,400 to 17,000 people. Contact tracing is where someone who tests positive for COVID has everyone they “contacted” during the past 14 days traced. The most effective way you do that is through cell phone data – which is already tracking every phone through Google and other “private” software companies. Are those companies going to share all of our data with governments now? According to many such as NSA Whistleblower Ed Snowden they already do share our info with the federal government. Oh but this time, it will only be for “public health” reasons, of course; trust them!

Over three weeks ago I received an email through my blog’s contact page from a Contact Tracing company named COVID Trace

Here is portion of the email I received from Wes Carr

We’re a volunteer effort having spent the past 3 weeks working on a unique way to do contact tracing. Our goal is to make an app that’s easy enough to use by everyone and sensitive to privacy concerns to have the majority of Americans comfortable with participating. Our challenge now is rolling out COVID Trace. Google and Apple are rightfully requiring partnerships with universities, health organizations, and governments. We’re searching for a partner to help shepherd the approval process and help with the next phase of working with a state or county to roll out contact tracing. As technologists not around public health or medicine, this is an area where we could use advice, guidance, and introductions. We’re happy to share details about our work. Let me know if it would be helpful to have a call to discuss further.

I emailed them back politely asking them what they would want me to do. They never contacted me again, which makes me believe this was an automated email that was searching for web platforms reporting on COVID-19 getting a high amounts of traffic. But this is what is coming to us. It is not coming on the federal level as I believe President Trump will get way too much push-back from his base if he backed an initiative like this. That is why it is coming out through state governors.

Based on Cuomo’s “guidance” for regional phased reopening, if your region in New York does not have a “contact tracing” plan in place, you will not be allowed to reopen to ‘normalcy.’ Is that even legal? Since Cuomo is a legal Dictator of New York now I suppose that question is moot. However Cuomo cannot defy federal laws – that’s where his dictatorship ends. It was somewhat hopeful to see Attorney General Barr release a recent memo saying that his office will be looking into Governors who violate the Constitution and people’s rights in the age of COVID. Don’t forget Barr has a history of covering up crimes for Iran Contra criminals, so everyone needs to be very cautious of him as well (the Deep State is not just made of Democrats).

Will the “army” of New York contact tracers be utilizing cell phone data to do their jobs, or will they only be conducting interviews and making phone calls? According to FOX News Bill Gates is recommending contact tracing be done through cell phones in a voluntary manner; where individuals choose whether or not to download the contact tracing app to their phone.

Contact tracing is certain to run into problems with HIPPA laws and the US Constitution, but it will be upon us very soon for sure. According to Dr. James Lyons-Weiler contact tracing was used during the first SARS outbreak in 2003. It is not new, but the scale coming from Cuomo and Bloomberg certainly is new. Will this “army” of up to 17,000 contact tracers just magically disappear after the COVID crisis is behind us? That is highly doubtful. I saw some on Twitter postulating that maybe the economic destruction is, in part, necessary to get the hiring pool for this massive effort. I’m not sure what I think of that, but it is certainly worth keeping in mind as we watch this all unfold

Make sure to read Cuomo’s 12 point plan for reopening New York one regions at a time. I’ve included points 5, 6, 7 and 12 below as I believe they are the most concerning for the Fascism descending upon New York right now.

5. Testing Regimen: Regions must implement a testing regimen that prioritizes symptomatic persons and individuals who came into contact with a known COVID-positive person, and conducts frequent tests of frontline and essential workers. Regions must maintain an appropriate number of testing sites to accommodate its population and must fully advertise where and how people can get tested. The region must also use the collected data to track and trace the spread of the virus.

6. Tracing System: There must be at least 30 contact tracers for every 100,000 people. The region must also monitor the regional infection rate throughout the re-opening plan.

7. Isolation Facilities: Regions must present plans to have rooms available for people who test positive for COVID-19 and who cannot self-isolate..

12. Regional Control Rooms: Each region must appoint an oversight institution as its control room to monitor regional indicators during the phased re-opening, including hospital capacity, rate of infection, PPE burn rate and businesses.

Dictator Cuomo Will Remove People From Their Homes

Brad Hoylman is fine with this – VOTE HIM OUT!

Vote for Liz Glass on November 3rd


April 28, 2020 — If you test positive for coronavirus in New York after the “shelter-in place” order is lifted in your region local authorities could remove you from your home, based on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to reopen sections of New York. It is listed as point #7:

7. Isolation Facilities: Regions must present plans to have rooms available for people who test positive for COVID-19 and who cannot self-isolate.

Will this be mandatory? Forced?

Dr. Michael Ryans of the World Health Organization (WHO) recently stated that “family members” – including children – may be forcibly removed from their homes and isolated if they test positive for the novel coronavirus. Tucker Carlson reported on this recently:

Does Cuomo plan on following the WHO/China model of forcibly removing people from their family homes? This is tyranny. It should be up to the family what does and does not happen to the family members within that household, not the state. New Yorkers have close to no recourse they can take to stop this. Governor Cuomo has “emergency powers” until April of 2021. The Senate and Assembly voted overwhelmingly to hand over virtually all authority to him, and King Cuomo certainly has become the end-all authority in New York.

New York’s Children Are Not Governor Cuomo’s guinea pigs

ACTION ALERT from John Gilmore

April 17, 2020 — As many of you may know the Patron Saints of my Blog are Rita Palma and John Gilmore – the two most important Health Freedom Activists in New York. Below is an action alert from John Gilmore everyone should respond to. – Fed Up Dem


     On Wednesday New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said in his daily briefing, “Anything we can do to work with the federal government to get the (covid-19) vaccine done faster, we are all in. We want to use New York as a laboratory. We are ready, willing, in any way.”


     We need to remind Gov. Cuomo New York’s children are not guinea pigs. And even though Cuomo has had the authority since March 3 to suspend any state law he chooses, as long as he asserts that it is necessary to address the covid-19 outbreak (and he will have that power until April of 2021) he cannot suspend federal laws, and he cannot suspend basic morality.


      Please get on the phone and start calling the decision makers and politely deliver  the message: “No using our kids as guinea pigs. No mandatory covid-19 shots. Not for school. Not for work. Not for anything.” 

The White House: (202) 456-1111

Governor Andrew Cuomo, (518) 474-8390

    And please click on this link  Take Action to send email messages to the President, Gov. Cuomo, and your elected representatives stating your opposition to a mandated covid-19 shot.

     Perhaps we need to remind the Governor of the Nuremberg Code, the set of ethical guidelines for medical research that emerged following the atrocities committed by medical resarchers in Nazi Germany. The first of the ten points of the Nuremberg code is, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”


     On February 4 the federal government declared covid-19 vaccines under development to be “countermeasures,” and extended complete liability protection to producers, health professionals and governments from any injuries that the vaccines may cause. In the haste to get a vaccine to market as quickly as possible the decision has already been made to skip animal testing. Researchers  are rushing to produce vaccines in months instead of the usual 5 to 7 years.


     Rushing vaccines to market in the past has not gone well. The first round of polio vaccines hurried into production in the 1950s actually caused polio. In 1976 a swine flu vaccine was quickly pulled when it became apparent it was causing paralysis in otherwise healthy people. And the H1N1 flu vaccine rushed to market in 2009 had a wide range of side effects and minimal efficacy.  Voices in the vaccine industry are lowering expectations that any of the covid-19 vaccines in development may be as effective as desired, or that rushed testing is wise. See:

     We know that Cuomo is contemptuous of basic human rights and safety as they relate to vaccines. He pushed through legislation last year that repealed the longstanding religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school, making New York one of only five states to do so. In August, 2019  he disregarded basic vaccine safety considerations when he issued regulations for medical exemptions from vaccine mandates that no longer protect children from injury, but only from re-injury after a documented vaccine injury has already occurred. Based on his performance to date and his statements, we cannot  reasonably expect Cuomo to put the safety of New York’s children, and their right not to be guinea pigs in medical experiments, before rushing a hastily prepared vaccine to market.  


     Nobody should be compelled to participate in any vaccine trial, and nobody should be compelled to use any vaccine, especially a vaccine developed in haste and that has not undergone the full range of customary safety and efficacy trials. The vaccine industry and governments have already cleared themselves of any  responsibility for an injury caused by a covid-19 vaccine, at the very least, use of any resulting product should be used strictly on a voluntary basis.
