The Take Down of Gov Cuomo

Why Now?

March 19, 2021 — The Fed Up Democrat has been reporting on the crimes of Governor Cuomo long before it became en vogue. But the crimes we are being allowed to see in the press today are not the worst he has committed. It seems that the Me Too sexual harassment allegations first brought forward by Lindsay Boylan sparked something that no one could stop. At the same time, Cuomo’s nursing home death scandal was coming to a head and the two merged in what appears will be a successful take down of Andrew Cuomo.

But that takedown needs to be “managed,” and it is Carl Heastie who is the manager.

Heastie has recently announced his Assembly investigation into impeaching Cuomo will occur quite secretly, which reveals what is actually happening. Cuomo will be taken down, but his biggest crimes will be hidden, while the ruling oligarchy of men like Bill Gates and Eric Schmidt will ensure their agenda through Cuomo still moves forward (forced vaccination, vaccine passports, closing schools, smart city NYC, etc…)

Cuomo’s #1 worst crime is instituting policies throughout all New York hospitals and health care facilities to maximize the number of deaths attributed to COVID. Yes, everyone is aware of how this happened in nursing homes, but it also occurred in all hospitals, especially those in New York City, and especially those in Black & Brown communities.

The over-use of ventilators from March till June of 2020 for those diagnosed, or even suspected, of having COVID, caused thousands to die who did not have to. Up to 90% of everyone placed on a ventilator during that time died. And this crime is one that goes all the way up through the federal government. Just as Cuomo gave immunity to nursing home executives for all deaths of nursing home residents during the pandemic, the federal government gave blanket immunity to all hospitals for anyone who died on a ventilator. Read my report on this from back in April of 2020, published at the height of the pandemic:

Medical Protocols Killed More New Yorkers Than COVID-19

THIS is the crime that must be covered up and protected at all cost.

THIS is the crime that could cause the entire COVID house of cards to come crashing down.

THIS is why Carl Heastie must keep a tight grip upon the investigation and impeachment of Cuomo.

The nursing home scandal brushes too close to this core crime. The Attorney General’s Office has subpoena power to investigate nursing home deaths, and as documents are obtained questions of who knew what when, and who ordered what when, are going to reveal very dangerous secrets of New York’s COVID nightmare. The game will be to take Cuomo down without taking the whole charade down. Many critical details of the nursing home scandal will not be allowed to see the full light of day because they will open the door to the larger Cuomo COVID death scandal. It is not a coincidence that the main focus of Cuomo’s crimes remains on the allegations of sexual harassment. Keeping the focus there protects the entire COVID house of cards and avoids exposing why high death toll numbers were the goal of Cuomo and his Health Commish Howard Zucker.

When Cuomo commented on his mishandling and “miscounting” of nursing home deaths one of the first things he said was that his administration never hid the TOTAL NUMBER of deaths. Of course they didn’t! THAT was the actual goal of every policy he implemented. The goal was to increase deaths, across the board, blame it on the virus and not his response to the virus, and usher in a new era of medical dystopia that we are currently in the middle of right now.

Cuomo is a favorite of the oligarchy that is trying to reshape and ‘reimagine’ New York by closing brick & mortar schools (permanently), expanding remote learning, turning NYC into a ‘smart city,’ force vaccinating the population and using ‘vaccine passports‘ as the foot-in-the-door to a biometric digital identity. But they can’t protect him from the growing sexual harassment allegations in the era of Me Too. Because of that they will stage a well-managed take down of the Governor where Cuomo will be handsomely repaid in some fashion after he exits New York’s top political office.

Cuomo Nursing Home Hearings

Protests Virtually Unreported

Cuomo’s Death Machine

Zucker Continues to Lie

When Can Family Visit Nursing Homes?

***

August 4, 2020 — Yesterday the New York legislative body in Albany held hearings on the nursing home debacle that caused 6,000 to possibly 12,000 deaths headed by Governor Cuomo and NY Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker. Protests of over 1,000 people happened outside of the Capitol on State St. with multiple speakers including whistleblower Nurse Erin Marie Olszewski.

Nurse Erin Marie is a major danger to Governor Cuomo as she is exposing the malpractice that turned Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, NY into a death factory during the COVID crisis. When Nurse Erin Marie stepped up to speak, New York Activist Rita Palma’s Facebook live stream went completely dead after running with no problem for 30 minutes recording all of the speakers who went before her. This seems to be another account of Facebook censoring voices for medical freedom. Eventually event organizers were able to publish her speech in full and you can view that here.

24 hours later the protest barely made the mainstream news. Spectrum mentioned the protest in the fifth paragraph of a report titled Cuomo Decries the Politics of the Pandemic.

Zucker Lies About Death Order

New York State Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker was questioned by members of the Senate and Assembly regarding why as many as 12,000 nursing home seniors died during the COVID crisis. Zucker refused to provide an updated, accurate number of nursing home residents who died of COVID during the hearing.

On March 25th Cuomo & Zucker released guidance to nursing homes stating, “No resident shall be denied readmission or admission to the (nursing home) solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. (Nursing homes) are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

Many have called this order a death sentence for thousands of seniors in nursing homes.

According to Newsday’s coverage of the hearing, Zucker said the above guidance was not mandatory. But obviously the wording of this directive was so incredibly strong what nursing home administrator would go against Cuomo during an unprecedented pandemic? Zucker went on to state the above guidance given on March 25th was not responsible for the massive amount of deaths in nursing homes. Newsday reported Zucker argued “the (health) department’s research of antibodies shows the peak of deaths could be attributed to infections before March 25 carried by staff and visitors who showed no symptoms at the time.”

There are two major problems with Zucker’s position here:

  1. Asymptomatic transmission of the novel coronavirus has been proven to be “extremely rare,” even according to the World Health Organization (WHO)
  2. Antibody testing have shown to be remarkably flawed, and the data they provide is extremely unreliable.

Zucker should be very aware that on June 11th WHO announced that asymptomatic transmission of the novel coronavirus is “extremely rare,” especially since he used to work for WHO. Is Zucker making the remarkably outlandish claim that 6,000 to 12,000 nursing home residents all died from an “extremely rare” form of transmission? It makes far more sense that seniors with symptoms of COVID that nursing homes were forced to house due to the March 25th order from Zucker were the source of infection.

To quote certified nurse and nursing home staffer Nicole Whittaker speaking to Spectrum news, “Masks were issued, but were being worn for too long,” she said. “We lost a significant number of residents, and many of these deaths could have been prevented. Residents with symptoms should have been isolated immediately, not after more than a month of infections.” (emphasis added)

Expert Witnesses

In the afternoon two witnesses were questioned. Michael A.L. Balboni, who is the Executive Director of Greater New York Health Care Facilities Association, and Neil Heyman, President of the Southern New York Association. Below are some of the highlights from the afternoon questions that came from Senator James Skoufis, Assemblyman John McDonald, Senator Gustavo Rivera, Assemblyman Ron Kim, Senator Sue Serino, Assemblyman Kevin Byrne and Assemblyman Tom Abinnanit. Here are the highlights from those questions

Senator James Skoufis asked if it was a lack of PPE that was “the primary driver” of infection in nursing homes. Balboni responded, “It is very difficult to be able to identify the exact mode of transmission” and that it was a combination of a lot of factors. Skoufis followed up by saying, “But this was at the top of the list?” Balboni said they believed it played a role, but never verbally agreed with Skoufis that this was the main cause of infection. To me it felt like Skoufis was searching for a “get-out-of-jail” card for Cuomo and Zucker. He didn’t get it.

Assemblyman John T. McDonald had environmental questions. He discussed relative humidity of air inside of a building as potentially playing a major role in how actively the virus could be transmitted. He asked if there is humidity testing in the nursing homes. Both Balboni and Heyman said there is not. Balboni said there could be an introduction of UV light in the ventilation systems to neutralize viruses. These are all valid concerns as we know respiratory viruses are mostly transmitted as aerosolized particles in the air. We have thus far been told that the novel coronavirus is only transmitted through droplets, however there are hundreds of scientists who disagree with this and believe the virus is airborne.

Senator Gustavo Rivera, chairman of the Senate Health Committee, asked about how nursing home deaths were reported. This is a crucial point that we must get an answer to in order to know the total number of seniors who died. Balboni said they followed the guidelines in the “HERD” survey (I don’t know what survey that is) and they didn’t take a look at deaths outside of the guidance on that survey. Balboni said the challenge is determining the cause of death. The medical examiners don’t determine the cause of death but rather the clinicians do, and there is “subjectivity.” Balboni echoed a very important point that the Medical Freedom community has been saying for months. There is no way to pin point and say what the precise reason is that someone died. If someone had emphysema for 20 years, contracted coronavirus and then died, we cannot say what precisely killed them.

This is correct, and goes directly against the CDC guidance telling clinicians to presume COVID as the cause of death for death certificates. I appreciate Balboni’s honesty on this.

Assemblyman Ron Kim was up next and said when he surveyed nursing homes they told him they only heard from the New York Department of Health (NYDOH) when the department wanted updated death count numbers. He stated that Cuomo provided legal indemnity to protect frontline workers, but also gave blanket immunity to all health care administrators. Kim asked Balboni and Heyman if they had lobbied for that indemnification, both said no, they did not. Balboni went on to make the point that health care providers are legally required to provide a “reasonable standard of care” to their patients, but that during a pandemic the definition of “reasonable standard of care” changes. Kim asked, “Are we better prepared now?” Both men said “Yes.” Kim gave a thumbs up, and that was it (his time ran out).

Senator Sue Serino asked such softball questions I am not going to report on them. I would have thought a Republican would have grilled harder and deeper, but she did not.

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne brought up an important topic – vacancy rates at nursing homes. Neil stated the increase in vacancy was directly related to the stopping of elected surgery. Elected surgery releases is the biggest driver of nursing home occupancy. Think of someone getting a hip replacement and then moving into a nursing home for the first time. Balboni said this is the next crisis coming in long term care. Currently nursing homes are barely making payroll. There were residents who were in nursing homes for the past 10 years who left and they are not coming back any time soon. Nursing homes face an incredible struggle to keep their doors open. Byrne asked if vacancy rates are dropping now? The answer is no. The fact that people can’t visit loved ones in nursing homes is stopping people from becoming residents. “We’ve never seen this before,” said Balboni, and it is a budding crisis that could cause nursing homes to shutdown.

Assemblyman Tom Abinanti focused on getting family members back in to nursing homes to visit loved ones. Abinanti sated family members are not visitors they should be viewed as part of the staff, part of the treatment for the senior in the nursing home. Balboni agreed with this. Abinanti asked if they had a plan to bring back visitors. Neil said that there is no plan at this time. Everyone is focused and concerned with caution. Balboni said he is confident that the ‘individual facillities’ can come up with plans to bring family visitors back safely. Abinanti asked if they had any numbers to show what the transmission risk was fromfamily members? They did not have any data on that subject.

This coverage is not comprehensive of the entire all-day hearing. Stay tuned to this blog as I will be publishing as much as possible regarding this hearing, and the upcoming hearing next week focused on nursing home deaths that occurred in upstate New York.

CNN Turns Back On Gov Cuomo

AKA “Governor FAIL

DOWN THE MOUNTAIN HE GOES!!!

July 15, 2020 — Seeing CNN turn on Governor Cuomo may be the true marking point of when the Governor started to descend down his very own mountain.

CNN’s Jake Tapper rightly criticized the ludicrous, ridiculous mountain poster put out by #GovernorFail Andrew Cuomo as a “victory lap” where there is no victory to be found. Tapper talks about Cuomo selling a poster of New York’s COVID nightmare that has references to his own daughters, his daughter’s boyfriend, and other inside jokes. It truly is a despicable poster that has endless offensive sketches and doodles throughout the entire monstrosity.

However, as Tapper points out Cuomo fails to mention any of the following points in the poster:

  • 32,000 dead New Yorkers
  • Highest death toll by far of any state
  • Cuomo ignored warnings that could have saved lives; should have acted sooner
  • Cuomo forced nursing homes to take all COVID infected patients

Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins Tapper and admits Cuomo has absolutely nothing to be celebrating.

This August Democratic leadership in Albany will be investigating Cuomo and his order forcing nursing homes to keep COVID infected seniors. This horrible decision resulted in at least 6,000 deaths, perhaps as many as 12,000.

Are we watching the beginning of the end of Cuomo?

Watch Tapper’s CNN report for yourself:

Cuomo Killed Grandma Hearings

Democrat Theater in an Election Year

June 26, 2020 — Albany Democrats have finally realized they cannot ignore the slaughter that happened in New York nursing homes during the COVID Lockdown under Governor Cuomo’s leadership. The public outrage and the media attention has grown too large, and Democratic leadership has announced it will be holding hearings into the matter.

However this is not an independent investigation, which is what really needs to happen. This is Democrat theater in an election year. Democrats don’t want to be voted out this coming November, and they know if they don’t place a cast-of-characters on the stage to scold for the slaughter of over 6000 senior citizens in nursing homes they may lose their seats to challengers in the general election come November.

I have ZERO FAITH in the outcome of these hearings. Nevertheless they are an important milestone. They likely mark the moment that public perception of Cuomo takes a stark turn for the worse, as it should. This will lay the ground work for further investigations; independent investigations possibly at the federal level. Besides Cuomo there is also a focus on his Commissioner of Health Howard Zucker. Many believe Zucker is merely Cuomo’s lapdog but as I learn more about him that narrative is wearing thin.

Zucker is a member of the elite and powerful Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), formerly worked for the World Health Organization (WHO), and has long been a shill for Big Pharma. Howard Zucker is a political and medical insider among the global elite and is certain to be serving the agendas of Bill Gates and others who want to see mandatory adult vaccination and increased authoritarian control over the populace. As of today, my bet is Zucker kept crucial information away from Cuomo so the Governor would have plausible deniability if an investigation ever arose.

Well it’s arisin’ now.

NY Take Action Against Cuomo

Call for independent investigation of Cuomo’s COVID-19 nursing home policies.

***

From AUTISM ACTION NETWORK (AAN)

During Cuomo’s May 13th daily covid 19 press event New York Governor Andrew Cuomo claimed, “I did everything I could,” to protect residents of nursing homes, despite a major reversal on Sunday of his policy to force nursing homes to accept patients from hospitals who had covid 19 infections.  More than 5400 New York nursing home residents have died so far, and that number does not include nursing home residents who were sent to hospitals where they died. According to the Associated Press, 40% of all nursing home deaths from covid 19 in the US have been in New York which has less than 6% of the total population.

Richard Gottfried (D-Manhattan), Chair of the Assembly Health Committee, among other legislators has called for an independent investigation of Cuomo’s nursing home policies.

We support the call for an investigation, independent of Cuomo and his political allies, of New York’s response to covid 19 in nursing homes. Please click on this link  Take Action  to send a message to your State Senator and Assemblymember calling for an independent review.

IF the “take action” link doesn’t work (AAN is attacked and hacked constantly) find your reps at the following links:

Find YOUR Assemblymember here – https://assembly.state.ny.us/mem/search/

Find YOUR Senator here – https://www.nysenate.gov/registration/nojs/form/start/find-my-senator

Please email and call their offices. It is unlikely the phone will be answered but please leave a message.

And please call the offices of Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins and Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie. Again, you will probably have to leave a message.

Senator Majority Leader Andrea Stewart Cousins, (518) 455-2585, (914) 423-4031

Speaker of the Assembly Carl Heastie, (518) 455-3791, (718) 654-6539

Sen Patrick Gallivan (R- Western New York)) the ranking member of the Senate Health Committee, said, “The exact number of deaths caused by COVID-19 among nursing home residents is unclear, but some reports indicate they have made up roughly one-fourth to one-fifth of the state’s total fatalities,” Gallivan said. “Equally uncertain is the number of confirmed or presumed cases of the virus among residents and staff. This is unacceptable.”

Assemblymember Ron Kim, (D-Queens) said in a statement, “Our community continues to reel from anger and disbelief at the negligence and disregard shown on this issue, and the irreparable harm done to nursing home residents in our community, throughout New York.”

Former Governor George Pataki has called for an investigation as well, characterizing Cuomo’s handling of covid 19 in nursing homes as a “disaster.”

Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis (R-Staten Island) has called for a federal investigation.

Another  major question that must be investigated is the refusal of the state to allow nursing homes to send patients with covid 19 symptoms to hospitals for appropriate treatment. One of the worst hit nursing homes is the Cobble Hill Care Center in Brooklyn which has had at least 55 residents die. As early as April 9 administrators pleaded with state officials to allow patients suspected of having covid 19 to go to hospitals but were denied.

Remember the only reason New Yorkers lost their right to a religious exemption from vaccine mandates to attend school was because Cuomo decided it was politically advantageous for him to do so. Prior to his belated, but decisive, involvement in the effort to repeal the religious exemption last June, it was clear that there were not enough votes to pass the measure in the Assembly. Cuomo cut deals and twisted arms to make it happen and it did.

If you cannot get a medical exemption from a vaccine mandate to attend school for your child, Cuomo is responsible for that as well. He allowed practices to develop that made getting an exemption exceedingly difficult, and then had the state regulations re-written last summer to allow exemptions almost exclusively in situations when a child has already had a documented near-death, anaphylactic reaction to a previous shot. The need to prevent injury was completely discarded and replaced with a policy that only allows avoiding re-injury in very limited cases.
