Democrats Assault on Disabled Children is Crumbling

Courts Override NY Democrats, Return Vaccine Exempt Children to School

February 1, 2020 — Disabled children in wheelchairs, walkers, with autism and far worse afflictions have been kicked out of all New York schools by the Democrats; thousands of them, because they are exempt from getting vaccinated. The Democrats claim any child with a “valid medical exemption” to vaccination is allowed in school, but today that is not the case.

In August of 2019, Governor Cuomo issued an emergency regulation to deny virtually all medical exemptions to vaccination. The NY courts have now determined – at least twice – that Cuomo’s emergency regulation is in essence illegal. The courts ruled two children with valid medical exemptions must be allowed back in school. Those two children are Ameer Hamideh (pictured above left) and Thorn Schwartz (pictured above right). Ameer is multiply disabled and Thorn is autistic. Ameer has been back in school since November and Thorn returns to school on Monday, February 3rd.

Both children were kicked out of school even though their parents presented valid medical exemptions to vaccination written by their doctors. Both had no choice but to sue the schools that had illegally denied the children their federally guaranteed right to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) (which is guaranteed by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).

In both cases the parents won, and both children are back in school. But thousands of other disabled children right now are at home – in their wheelchairs and walkers; with their assistive technology and communication devises – deprived of special education services and interaction with their peers. In fact the state isn’t even providing their mandated services at their homes in most cases. They have been completely written off. These are the children whose parents can’t afford a lawyer to fight their cases. The courts are now poised to hear arguments as to whether Cuomo’s emergency regulation denying medical exemptions is entirely illegal, and if the regulation needs to be thrown out or amended.

How the hell did New York get to this horrendous place?


This all started when the Democratic majority in Albany repealed the Religious Exemption to vaccination on June 13, 2019. When this happened most Albany Democrats made two gigantic mistakes:

(1) They did not do their due diligence on the matter, and

(2) They did not count on how heartless and ruthless Governor Cuomo was going to be.

You must understand the history of vaccine exemptions in New York to fully appreciate Cuomo’s sick cruelty towards disabled children. In New York it is nearly impossible to get a medical exemption to vaccination that is actually honored. The law here is clear – only a medical doctor can write a medical exemption to vaccination, but the schools still deny them by referring the exemption to the Department of Health where they are almost always killed. Because of this unfair, and illegal structural flaw, for years many doctors have told parents, “Yes, your child will get injured if they get another vaccine; but your only recourse is to go get a Religious Exemption for your child.”

So thousands of children who had valid medical reasons to not be vaccinated received Religious Exemptions (REs) to vaccination because it was their only true option. When the RE was repealed, instead of doing anything to assist these vulnerable children who could not be vaccinated, Cuomo did the opposite. He issued an emergency regulation through Howard Zucker, the Commissioner of the New York Health Department ensuring they would not grant medical exemptions to the thousands of students who needed them because their REs were just made null-and-void by the repeal law. However under New York law the Department of Health (DOH) plays no role in accepting or rejecting a medical exemption to vaccination to begin with. Therefore Cuomo’s new regulation was clearly an over-reach of power: it was attempting to strengthen a power of the DOH that it never legally had!

So now the New York Democrats are the political party who kick disabled children while they are down. This is a bad, bad look for them (to put it nicely). Especially when the Democrats have traditionally been the party that speaks about equal access, universal design for learning for all children, accessibility of transportation, equal employment, and on and on an on…

Now thousands of disabled children are home bound, illegally denied an education because of laws Democrats baked like a cake and a ruthless regulation King Cuomo iced that cake with. I do not think the 2020 election cycle is going to be kind to many incumbent Democrats in New York. We are seeing many Dems being challenged in primaries, as well as many who may lose their seats to Republicans.

Brave Democrats

Not every Democrat fell for Cuomo’s okey-doke. 19 Brave Democrats voted NO to repealing the Religious Exemption to vaccination, and they may be the future of the party. We are seeing many of these Democrats thrive!

Assemblywoman Rodneyse Bichotte who bravely went against party leadership – voting NO to repealing the Religious Exemption to vaccination – has just taken her place as Brooklyn’s new Democratic Party chair. This makes her the first African American woman in New York City to hold the position of Party chair. An excellent piece was written about her in the Amsterdam News by Rev. Dr. Kahli C. Mootoo.

Also in Brooklyn Assemblywoman Tremaine Wright is getting endorsed left-and-right to fill a soon-to-be vacant Senate seat. She too voted NO to repealing the Religious Exemption to vaccination. The outgoing Senator, Velmanette Montgomery – who held the Senate seat for 34 years – has endorsed Assemblywoman Wright to be her successor. Oddly enough Senator Montgomery voted YES to repealing the Religious Exemption to vaccination – twice! She voted YES in the Senate Health Committee, and YES on the floor of the Senate. Less than 7 months later she announces her retirement and gives her endorsement to a rising star in Brooklyn who voted NO to repeal.

Both Bichotte and Wright are African American. New Jersey Assemblyman Jamel Holley is an African American man who stopped the repeal of the Religious Exemption to vaccination in New Jersey. He has swiftly become a national leader on the issue, and has pledged to engage legislators all across the country – including in New York. This makes me think of a quote from Virstyne Henry back in December; she has a theory she likes to call The Once black people find out about it it’s over for them” theory. We may be witnessing this theory becoming a reality right here, right now.

Meanwhile Brad Hoylman, the Big Pharma-loving State Senator who originally sponsored the bill to repeal the Religious Exemption to vaccination, is being challenged by Liz Glass, who has made Vaccine Choice and Health Freedom a centerpiece of her candidacy.

Smart Democrats

Senator Monica Martinez from Suffolk County, Long Island is not falling for Cuomo’s okey-doke either. She sees how horrendous the situation is for her political party as it relates to kicking disabled children while they are down. Because of this she proposed new legislation – bill S7573 – that would protect the medical exemption to vaccination and restores it to the clear intention of the letter of the law: the medical judgment of the child’s physician shall prevail, and his or her decision may not be overridden by school or public health authorities.

It is abundantly clear that there is a huge shift happening in New York politics, as well as a rift in the Democratic party. Leadership is siding with Big Pharma but a growing minority of Democrats see that this unholy marriage is a sinking ship that could cost them their jobs in 2020.

Elizabeth Glass Challenges Brad Hoylman for NY Senate

Elizabeth Glass Challenges Brad Hoylman for NY Senate!

Big Pharma’s Favorite NY Puppet May Lose His Seat

January 28, 2020 – Elizabeth Glass is challenging Brad Hoylman for his New York Senate Seat. This is ginormous news! The mood in NY is shifting rapidly. I am not the only FED UP DEMOCRAT in NYC!

Go to Glass’s Facebook page and like her page, follow, share – all that stuff you do on Facebook.

On Twitter Glass is @glassforsenate and her description is subtle yet brilliant. It reads:

Mother of 4. Teacher. DV Advocate. Candidate for NYS Senate in Manhattan’s District 27. The Revolution Starts Now.

Her Twitter account is locked and she is currently following only 7 people on Twitter – and I am one of them. All the tea leaves are reading very delicious right now; I think she is pro-Health Freedom (but time will tell).

For those who don’t know, Brad Hoylman is the NY Senator from Manhattan who is Big Pharma’s biggest fan and most controlled puppet. He sponsors all bills that take away parental rights to control what goes into our children’s bodies. Hoylman was the original sponsor of the bill that repealed the Religious Exemption to vaccination, and now he wants to force the dangerous HPV vaccine – Merck’s Gardasil – on all New York children to go to school. He also supports children getting vaccinated in school for STDs without parental knowledge or consent, and he supports perfectly healthy HIV-negative children getting dangerous HIV PrEP drugs without parental knowledge or consent.

This man MUST be VOTED OUT!



***Update*** On January 29th Liz Glass posted her platform on her Facebook page making it 100% clear she is a #VaccineChoice & #HealthFreedom Democrat. I fully and enthusiastically endorse Glass for Senate in NY-27!

Hevesi Cosponsors Forced HPV Vaccine of All NY Children

He Kicked Disabled Children Out of all NY Schools…

Now he may force YOUR KID to be vaccinated with HPV Vaccine!


ACTION ALERT – Call his office (see bottom of post)

January 25, 2020 — Andrew Hevesi, Assemblyman from Queens and son of disgraced convicted felon Alan Hevesi, has become a cosponsor of A2912a which would force the HPV vaccine Gardasil on all New York children to attend school. If this becomes law New York will become the *only* state in America where Gardasil is mandatory and there is no option to opt-out.

Last session Hevesi’s office was mired in controversy when one of his staffers was wearing a medical mask as orthodox Jewish New Yorkers were coming into their office, but was taking it off when speaking with non-orthodox Jews. You can read about that here:

Hevesi also voted YES to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination on June 13, 2019, after flip-flopping his position multiple times. First he was going to vote YES, then he met with a group of constituents along with Dr. Larry Palevsky. After being educated by the great Dr. Palevsky Hevesi said he would be voting NO to repealing the religious exemption. Then he flipped back to YES and voted to take away the Constitutional Rights of every New Yorker.

Back on May 1st, 2019, I reported the following here at this blog:

Assemblyman Hevesi was in support of a bill sponsored by Assemblyman Dinowitz to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination, bill A2371. By the end of the conversation (Hevesi had with constituents and Dr. Palevsky) it was reported that Hevesi stated unless Dinowitz can prove to him that it is unvaccinated children who have a religious exemption that are the cause of the spread of measles, he will vote *no* on the bill…

But Hevesi flipped back and voted YES anyway.

What’s particularly disappointing and frankly disgusting about Hevesi is that we know he had good, credible information and documentation presented to him by the amazing Dr. Palevsky; we know it was convincing and changed Hevesi’s mind; yet he still went and voted the way King Cuomo and Speaker Carl Heastie ordered him to vote.

Call Hevesi’s offices. Tell him to vote REMOVE HIS NAME as cosponsor on A2912a that would mandate Gardasil for all New York children in school and to vogte NO to A973a that allows children to be drugged and vaccinated for STDs without parental knowledge or consent.

Braunstein Hides From Queens Constituents on Vaccine Laws

He Kicked Disabled Children Out of all NY Schools…

Now he may force YOUR KID to be vaccinated with HPV Vaccine!


ACTION ALERT – Call his office (see bottom of post)


January 23, 2020 — Assemblyman Ed Braunstein is “on the fence” about whether to force your child to be injected with the HPV vaccine to go to school in New York: he may vote YES to bill A2912a that would mandate Gardasil. His voting & cosponsor record in regards to Health Freedom & Vaccine Choice are atrocious, and he is a member of the Assembly Health Committee.

Braunstein voted to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination on June 13, 2019, and he was a cosponsor of bill to A973a which would allow New York children to be vaccinated for any sexually transmitted disease (including HPV) in school without parental knowledge or consent. That bill will also allow preventative drug treatment of STDs for children without parents knowing – including PrEP for HIV/AIDS. 

The parents who confronted Senator John Liu on December 5th also went up to Braunstein’s office that day. There is a video of what happened but that is not being publicized at this time. The Assemblyman’s door was LOCKED. The light was on, shining from underneath, but the door – during business hours – was not open. Constituents wonder if Liu’s office ‘warned’ Braunstein that it was a demonstration day.

In an odd coincidence at the same time on December 5th, Braunstein was spotted at a Starbucks in midtown Manhattan by another Vaccine Choice Advocate. She snapped a pic then confronted him in the Starbucks. He responded, “You people have to stop. I get accosted everywhere I go now about vaccines.” That day, December 5th, was a state-wide day of action in New York to protest mandatory Flu & HPV vaccine laws that are going to be voted on soon.

Braunstein took an appointment in Albany with Vaccine Choice Advocates back on May 14, 2019, before the religious exemption to vaccination was repealed. In that meeting he was challenged on vaccine legislation he supported. Braunstein is a member of the Assembly Health Committee and was always an open supporter of all the wrong vaccine legislation. The bill A973a in the assembly would allow children to receive “STD treatments” at age 14 and up. Braunstein was told by a constituent that in the Senate the bill allows 9 year old children to “consent” to “STD treatment.”

His face dropped when he heard that. “9 years old?” he said, somewhat stunned, and made a comment that he wouldn’t trust his own child at 9 years of age to make far less serious decisions than consenting to medical treatments.

Call Braunstein’s offices. Tell him to vote NO on A2912a that would mandate Gardasil for all New York children in school and to vote NO on A973a that allows children to be drugged and vaccinated for STDs without parental knowledge or consent.

There were other Democrats who were involved in odd “vote-flipping” such as Nader Sayegh and Richard Gottfried, who voted YES to repeal the religious exemption to vaccination in the Health Committee, but then NO on the floor. These Dems suck, and may stab us in the back again. We need to continue to apply pressure on them and remember they are not allies of ours.

As for the 19 Dems listed above please contact all or as many of these Democrats as you can and thank them for voting to protect religious and health freedoms in New York.Just click on their names and you will be taken to their official webpages. From their you can email or call them. I wish I could write about each and every one of them in this piece, but I can only cover so much:

Tom Abinanti fought valiantly for us on the floor of the Assembly and is a true Health Freedom Hero! He debated the sponsor of the repeal bill, Jeff Dinowitz, and Abinanti wiped the floor with him in the debate. I covered that at this website back in June in a piece called VACCINATION – THE AFTERMATH. Here is what I wrote about Abinanti at that time:

Assemblyman Tom Abinanti voted NO on this bill in the Health Committee as well as on the floor vote. He debated Assemblyman Dinowitz, the bill’s sponsor, on the floor of the assembly and completely dominated. When referencing the recent measles outbreak in New York Abinanti firmly stated multiple times: “We’ve seen no evidence that anyone with a religious exemption has endangered anyone else” Dinowitz didn’t even try to refute this. He couldn’t. No evidence exists at all! Abinanti also made the important point that in all the schools that were shutdown for having unvaccianted children in them, none of them had any cases of measles!

Charles Barron from Brooklyn fought for us valiantly as well in both the Assembly Health Committee and during the Assembly floor vote. Here is what I wrote about Barron back in June:

Assemblyman Barron – a former member of the Black Panther Party – pulled no punches when he made it very clear that vaccines can, and do, cause injury to some people. He said people will reference studies that say this is not possible, but “you can find a study that will say anything.” He said his evidence of vaccine injury comes from his own lived experience of meeting and talking to people with vaccine injured children.

Rodneyse Bichotte from Brooklyn voted NO in the Health Committee and NO on the floor of the Assembly to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. Here is what I wrote about her back in June:

Assemblywoman Bichotte opposed the bill and said she was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine as a child and got the measles TWICE AFTER THAT! Can someone say #VACCINEFAILURE ?!? Bichotte, who is Haitian American, went on to boldly remind everyone that people had spread misinformation in the 1980’s that HIV/AIDS came from Haiti and Haitians. She was cutoff before she could finish her statement, but it was clear she was drawing a parallel to the ridiculous claims being made about unvaccinated children today.

Watch Bichotte comment after voting NO to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination:

David Weprin – Weprin was one of only two Queens Democrats to vote against repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. He is a man of faith and religious values are a part of his core values as a man and a human being. When speaking to constituents about the religious exemption to vaccination he often said getting rid of any legal religious exemption to anything is a “slippery slope.” Currently Weprin’s office has already arranged to meet with constituents regarding the new round of vaccine legislation we are facing in 2020. Thus far all signals appear to be that he remains in our corner.


***If anyone has good information about any of the other Democrats who support Health Freedom and Vaccine Choice in New York please send it to me at thefedupdemocrat and I will add it to this report.***

If you are on Twitter, below is a tweet I sent with 15 of the 16 Assembly Democrats in this report tagged. Retweet this. Also copy their Twitter handles below and send them THANK YOU TWEETS for being brave and supporting Health Freedom when it wasn’t easy for them to do.

King Cuomo’s Royal Senate Court

The 10 Democratic Senators Who Cosign Cuomo’s Crimes

January 12, 2019 — King Cuomo has turned the New York Senate Health Committee into a rubber stamp for his criminal regulation to drug and vaccinate children without parental knowledge. There are 10 Democratic Senators who are doing whatever Cuomo wants when it comes to vaccine legislation – all of there pictures, names, phone numbers, emails, websites and twitter info are at the end of this report – contact them all!

Back on May 18, 2019, I published a report titled Democrats Disgraceful Vote detailing how these 10 Democratic Senators in the Health Committee all voted YES to allow children as young as 9-years-old to be vaccinated without parental consent. There were two very important facts I didn’t know at that time, which were;

1 – I didn’t know the bill – S3899a – will also allow for drugging of healthy, HIV-negative children with HIV-PrEP drugs, and,

2 – I didn’t know this was already being done illegally in New York schools under a regulation that King Cuomo signed with his royal pen in 2017.

Make no mistake about this – King Cuomo’s regulation is illegal!

So now he needs this law to cover for the fact that his regulation was clearly illegal by making it “legal” retroactively. Good thing for Cuomo he has 10 morally bankrupt Senators in the Health Committee who have already blindly cosigned his crime by voting YES to cover for it. The bill has not yet passed the entire Senate and its companion bill in the Assembly has not yet made it to the Assembly Health Committee to my knowledge.

Just a few days ago on January 8th, Senate bill # S298b that would make the HPV vaccine mandatory to attend school was referred to the Senate Health Committee. So I am sure the King’s Royal Senate Court of 10 will be mindlessly voting “YES” to this bill as well!

Some people have told me, “Do not compliment Cuomo by calling him a King!”

It is no compliment to call an American Governor a King.

Let’s not forget, this country was founded on complete rejection and visceral hatred of Britain’s King George. The cornerstone of the American Revolution was that America would never allow a king to gain power in our country ever again. Cuomo is signing regulations and forcing through laws in his budget (such as drugging children and bail reform) that bypass the legislative process entirely, completely taking away New Yorkers voices on these matters. I wonder how the colonists of the 1770s would react to this now!

It’s important to note that the Senate Health Committee – and the Senate as a whole body – has fallen into corruption that reminds me of how the Senate of the Roman Empire eventually fell. Since it is under Democratic control effectively all of the Senate Democrats must do whatever his royal highness King Cuomo says (with maybe 3 exceptions). However the Assembly is not quite as far gone in the same fashion. Democratic members of the Assembly have historically been able to stand against King Cuomo successfully. We have at least 16 Democrats in the Assembly who have shown they are pro-Health Freedom when they voted NO to repealing the religious exemption to vaccination. I will be posting a report on those 16 Assemblymembers soon, as we need to thank them for being brave, independent, honorable lawmakers.
