Gone For Good???

Of course, we all know the ex-Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo is in the trash heap for his sexual escapades, but his younger brother Chris, the self-proclaimed “superstar” journalist who works at CNN may be right on his heels. It appears, as the Attorney General’s investigation gets released to the public, that Chris played a much bigger role in trying to defend Andrew than was originally thought, or that he himself admitted to.

While the younger Cuomo had said all along that he helped draft statements and gave advice to Andrew, he never gave the full breadth of the “help” he provided. According to Andrew Cuomo’s top aide, Melissa DeRosa, it was Chris Cuomo that was telling her what to say, what to do, and how to do it. In fact, Chris was actually calling up Ronan Farrow, the guy that broke the story back in March, and asked him about the story as it was being investigated. Then Chris turned around and gave that information to DeRosa. Oops. That’s really frowned upon in the media world.

First of all, you don’t go snooping into another reporter’s story and try to find out the dirty gossip on it. Second, if you do, you certainly let that reporter have his or her day by exposing whatever it is that they’ve been working on. You don’t call up the source of the investigation and blab to them what’s going on and when you think the story will actually be made public. Chris Cuomo did all of that. End of credibility.

Now the real interesting part has yet to play out. If anyone I ever came in contact with in media ever did that, or I ever did that, it would be an easy finale. Whoever did what Chris Cuomo did would be fired on the spot. There wouldn’t be a discussion, there wouldn’t be a suspension with or without pay. There would be an armed guard standing over you as you put your belongings in a box and you were systematically ushered to the front door and given the boot.

The fact that CNN hasn’t fired Cuomo yet but only “suspended him indefinately” speaks more volumes than Cuomo’s actions itself. Any news organization with a sense of purpose and dignity wouldn’t be waiting for “a more thorough investigation” on the matter, as CNN has claimed. They’d be seeing how far the “superstar’s” rear end could be kicked down the street. And there wouldn’t be another news organization anywhere in the country that would touch him with a ten foot pole. That is the death penalty. That is the same fate as if he had gone out and made up a story and broadcast it as fact. It’s irresponsible journalism. Actually, no. It’s not. It doesn’t even rise to the level of journalism. If anything, it’s yellow journalism.

Chris Cuomo has lost all credibility, and frankly I can’t see why CNN would keep him around in any capacity unless the janitor is on vacation and they need someone to sweep the studio floors after hours. He has followed in his brother’s footsteps and has done something that is guaranteed to remove him from his profession for the rest of his life. Just like his brother.

The only difference is, Chris Cuomo may not be going to jail. With Andrew, we’re still not so sure.

COP26 Named As One Large Polluter!

You know it had to happen. In an age of “Rules for thee, but not for me”, the United Nations’ big COP26 eco-summit in Scotland apparently wants you and me and the rest of the world to stop traveling, to stop eating cows, to stop breathing, to do anything to lower our “carbon footprint” to help stop what has scientifically been classified as a “natural climate change” happening. The problem is, the folks that showed up in Glasgow aren’t walking the walk…just talking the talk, and that of course, means more carbon dioxide being spewed into the air.

Apparently, there were monitors on the ground in Glasgow for the COP26 summit that measured the amount of carbon footprint from the attendees of the summit. And as usual, it showed something quite amazing. The emissions from the COP26 summit were twice as high as the previous UN summit. That means that all of the hundreds of private jets flying one and two people into Scotland for the summit, all of the multi-car motorcades driving all of the attendees around town for a few days, did nothing but raise the emissions level in that town.

And of course, our own guy was the cause for a lot of it. Not only did Joe Biden arrive in the larges private plane on the planet, Air Force One, but he had an 80 car motorcade that followed him around wherever he wanted to go. Stop off at McDonalds for a burger? 80 cars in line at the drive thru. Want to go back to the hotel for a quick nap? 80 cars heading back along with him.

This is what really gets me about these eco-terrorists. They cry that the world can’t take you going to soccer practice or dance practice, and living you life as you want to. They want to preach to you every time you throw out a pop bottle rather than recycle it. They scream that having the house at 70 degrees in the winter is abusive to the planet and that we need to get rid of all air travel, all cars that aren’t electric, all of the fossil fuels out there that make this planet spin. Yet, they are the ones who use the most energy, they are the ones in the private jets flying to these conferences all over the world in their Lear Jets. They are the ones that don’t give a hoot how much pollution they cause because it’s not about them, and it’s not about pollution. It’s about power. It’s about restricting your freedoms.

Look, I’ve written on this many times. Our Earth has survived millions of years of abuse the likes of which mankind couldn’t even scratch the surface of. Our own planet causes more destruction and pollution through one major volcanic eruption than mankind does in a year of driving cars around. We’ve had ice ages where the planet went into a deep freeze. We’ve warmed up from them without any additional carbon dioxide being thrown into the atmosphere. You don’t hear about that, do you? And no scientist can tell you how it is that we went into ice ages and came out of them all by Earth doing her thing.

No, it’s mankind that’s causing this. No, actually it’s the ego of these liberal snowflakes that are causing this. They are so void of perception that they cannot fathom the idea that our Earth is a cyclical being of it’s own. It warms, it cools. It floods, it has droughts. It builds it’s own new lands through volcanic eruptions, and takes land away through earthquakes. It yins and yangs. In short, our Earth takes care of itself.

Having said that, it’s important to understand what I’m NOT saying here. I’m NOT saying that we should go our and arbitrarily pollute our rivers, contaminate our air, and ravage our land. We ARE after all, stewards of this big blue marble, and yes, we do need to take care of it. But in the ongoing mis-step of liberals everywhere, they do as they always do…they take things too far. They do it for a few reasons. They want you to believe you’re not smart enough to live your life as you choose, that they have to tell you how to do that. They have to make the decisions for you. They want you to have less freedoms, so they can have more power. That’s what’s really standing in their way. As long as you have the freedom to move about the world as you choose, they cannot put you under their thumb and hold you down. It has nothing to do with the Earth and saving the planet. Only those naive high school dropouts who want to “change the world” believe that this has anything to do with saving the planet. Educated people know damn well what this is about.

And so, we go from eco-summit to eco-summit, with hundreds of private jets polluting the host cities, and no apologies in sight from Greta Thunberg. As she would say, “How dare you!”

Making Sense Of The Supply Chain

I haven’t written about this yet, so let me jump in. The only reason I’m discussing Biden’s total lack of leadership in the whole supply chain debacle, yet the latest bite in the butt his administration has had to endure because of their total lack of intelligence, is because of Biden himself.

He recently addressed a group in Maryland and was talking about supply chains, and was rather condescending about it. Here’s his quote:

“You hear a lot about the supply chains in the news, but frankly, not a lot of people have a clear understanding, whether they have a Ph.D. or they didn’t go to school, about how a supply chain works. In simple terms, supply chain is just the journey that a product takes to get to your doorstep. As long as goods and materials are getting where they need to go on time, there’s usually no need to worry about the supply chains.” Then, as if that weren’t enough, he wanted to drive the point home: If we were all going out and having lunch together and I said, ‘Let’s ask whoever’s in the next table, no matter what restaurant we’re in, have them explain the supply chain to us.’ Do you think they’d understand what we’re talking about?”

Personally, I think that most Americans understand what is going on with the supply chain mess. It’s a pretty easy scenario to understand, even if Biden thinks we Americans are too stupid to get it. Here is the real reason why the supply chains are all screwed up.

First of all, gas prices have shot through the roof. That means that over the road truckers (who deliver the stuff from the ports typically on the west coast), have to spend more of their razor thin margins on diesel. That doesn’t bode well. For a lot of them, that means they are going to have to lose money to make the trip, and frankly, I don’t know many people that want to lose money when they work. That’s just idiocy. You have to blame the Biden administration for the increase in gasoline and diesel prices. After all, inflation and the gas prices were low under Trump. Now, they are sky high. What’s the difference? Only the guy in the White House and his policies have changed.

Second, because you have a bunch of people sitting at home because they can’t make money, you’ve also got a president that insists that everyone in the country MUST take a vaccine for COVID. So, while he believes that a woman has a right to choose “what to do with her body”, he doesn’t want to afford the same liberty to the rest of America. That means that trucking companies that hire these OTR drivers have to enforce a vaccine mandate that is unpopular with the country. In fact, only 28% of the country thinks Biden is on the right track with these mandates. So, those that may still be making money after paying confiscatory gas prices, may not want to take the jab. And yes, I took the vaccine and don’t have a problem with it, but that was MY choice, not Biden’s. If someone doesn’t want to take the vaccine for whatever reason, I’m fine with that and I respect their decision!

So, because of those two reasons, there are hundreds (some say thousands) of ships sitting off the port of Long Beach, and Los Angeles. They stretch for miles, just sitting there, loaded with goods from Asia (mostly China). Don’t think for a minute that China isn’t pissed at Biden right now because they have made these goods and have no way to get paid if they don’t get delivered to the people that purchased them (the stores). In fact, I’m just wondering depending on how long this whole thing takes, if some of the more perishable items go bad, how big of a hit China will end up taking?

Bring in Transportation Secretary, and Nanny Daddy, Pete Buttigieg who decried that the fact of the matter is that the lack of free pre-school and low-cost child care is another reason why the supply chain is messed up. Of course, he will say pretty much anything to deflect from the fact he doesn’t have a clue how to do his job, and his kid could probably handle the situation better than he has done. I doubt many people would take a month off, especially in an adoption situation rather than a wife that had been pregnant and needed some time to get back to normal, in a national emergency, but that’s Democrats for you!

Durham Probe Reaches Biden White House

We haven’t heard much from Special Council, John Durham’s probe into illegal activities regarding the 2016 election, but things are starting to ramp up a bit…albeit a year or so too late. Remember, Durham was going to release his findings a little more than a year ago…but decided to wait. Well, he did wait, and now the crap is starting to hit the fan.

43 year old, Igor Danchenko, was arrested for making false statements to the FBI. Danchenko was one of the central figures in the Hillary Clinton sponsored “Steele Dossier” that said that Donald Trump was aligned, if not an agent to the Russian government. That of course was a lie foisted upon the world by Christopher Steele, a former British spy. The whole thing was made up by the Clinton campaign to make Donald Trump look bad and to take some of the heat off of Clinton herself over her many scandals that plagued her campaign.

Now it seems that another one has bit the dust. At least they’ve been mentioned in the Durham probe as former Hillary Clinton attorney, Michael Sussman has also been indicted on charges of again, lying to the FBI. He pleaded not guilty to those charges. But interestingly enough, in the indictment, Durham talks about a “foreign policy advisor”. That persona has turned out to be none other than Biden National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan. Sullivan has been identified as a person that Sussman communicated with to “proliferate false allegations”. In fact, here is his quote from the indictment:

“On or about September 15, 2016, Campaign Lawyer-1 exchanged emails with the Clinton Campaign’s campaign manager, communications director, and foreign policy advisor concerning the Russian Bank-1 allegations that SUSSMANN had recently shared with Reporter- 1. Campaign Lawyer-1 billed his time for this correspondence to the Clinton Campaign,” 

To date, there hasn’t been any comment that I’ve seen anywhere from the White House on Sullivan’s alleged involvement in the phony Steele Dossier case. However, if this thing ramps up the way John Durham usually does things, don’t be too surprised if Biden isn’t looking for another National Security Advisor in the next few weeks.

This of course comes from the guy that swore that a) he wouldn’t be firing people left and right as Donald Trump did, and b) he wouldn’t be putting up with people that treated other people poorly, as he alleged that Trump also did. He seems to have broken at least b) in that when he allowed former White House Deputy Press Secretary, TJ Ducklo to date a reporter from Axios. When he was called out on it by a reporter from Politico, he issued a sexist and profane threat to the Politico reporter. He was suspended for a week without pay by White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, and later resigned.

It seems that while there haven’t been a ton of scandals coming from the Biden White House, there have been some, and they have been slow to deal with them. Part of the reason we haven’t heard about scandals isn’t because they aren’t happening…every administration has tons of them. The real reason we haven’t heard from them is because most of the focus has been on the ineptitude of the president and vice president of the United States and their inability to carry out their jobs in any semblance of a responsible and reasonable manner.

Whether Sullivan is called on the carpet, or forced to resign, or even indicted by Durham in this whole affair remains to be seen. To date, it’s an abomination to think that someone that holds a National Security Advisor position would stoop so low as to be involved with such a dirty smear campaign as what Hillary Clinton tried to foist on the American public. I say that, and while I was writing that mid-sentence, I realized that there was ANOTHER National Security Advisor back in the Obama administration that was equally as inept as Sullivan, and equally as bereft of values. Her name was Susan Rice. What is it with these Democrats that they can’t operate above the law?

What Is It With July Phone Calls?

I’ve always known that August should be the month that presidents should dread. If you think back through the last few presidents we’ve had, there have been problems for all of them in the month of August. It seems like it has a whammy on them. I mean, it was in August that George W. Bush learned that there was an attack being planned on the World Trade Centers. It was in August that Bill Clinton ended up testifying in the whole Monica Lewinsky affair. Go back to 1964 and you’ve got Lyndon Johnson having the Gulf of Tonkin affair during the Vietnam War in August. Of course, you’ve got Joe Biden’s abortion of a pullout of Afghanistan that basically has ruined his presidency. And who can forget that Richard Nixon resigned in August of 1974?

Well, it’s starting off that July is also a pretty bad month for presidents to be making phone calls. You’ll remember it was in July that Donald Trump made a phone call to Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelenskiy. That led to the whole big investigation the Democrats wanted to hold to see if there was any “quid pro quo” in trying to hang a mess on Joe and Hunter Biden. Remember that it had to do with Trump withholding funds from Ukraine if they didn’t help out with it? And of course it was the exact same thing that happened when Joe Biden threatened to withhold funds from the country if they didn’t fire the prosecutor that was looking into the firm Hunter Biden was on the Board of Directors of.

It’s happening again. Apparently, there is a phone call that Joe Biden made to Afghan President, Ashraf Ghani, back in July. At that time, Biden was trying to get Ghani to “change the narrative” on the Taliban. Biden spent 14 minutes on the phone with Ghani, and the bulk of that time had Joe focusing in on the optics of the Taliban taking back Afghanistan. As he put it:

“I need not tell you the perception around the world and in parts of Afghanistan, I believe, is that things are not going well in terms of the fight against the Taliban,” Biden said. “And there is a need, whether it is true or not, there is a need to project a different picture.”

Oops. And that’s something that is in a transcript. That’s not something that the communications team at the White House can easily dismiss, especially in light of the fact that Biden has stranded thousands of Americans in Afghanistan with no way to get home!

So, it bears the question…should US sitting presidents just not take phone calls for the month of July and pick another month rather than August to go on vacation and not respond to events happening around the world? Or is it something else?

I would contend it’s the latter. I don’t think that Donald Trump’s call to Zelenskiy, or Biden’s call to Ghani were smart moves on their parts at all. Trump was acting very vindictive and thought he could get political dirt on an upcoming rival. Biden was hoping to escape what looked like at the time, and turned out to be an absolute sh*t show. Neither of these guys really fully understood the optics of what they were dealing with. Trump was a neophyte politician, and I guess you can sort of excuse him for that. Biden is just a mental case. The knock on him even before the election was that he was not mentally capable of running the country, and he certainly hasn’t given any reason to believe that opinion was anything but 100% valid.

Trump’s call to Zelenskiy was a part of his downfall, along with the COVID response that he kept making day after day. I wrote here in this blog that he needed to stop with the daily briefings and let Mike Pence take over and run them, since he was doing nothing more than playing cheerleader. That and the obvious reference to trying to get dirt on Biden hurt him. With Biden it was much worse. We are now only beginning to learn of the incompetence of this guy and the screwed up plan that he approved and put in place. Anyone with an ounce of brains would have realized that he did things entirely backwards. If you’re going to leave a country you’ve occupied for any length of time, the first thing you do is get the civilians out. Then you get the Embassy personnel out . Then you get the military out. Biden did the opposite, and it will cost him. His term is basically over unless there is something up the road that he can do to rectify this.

Any attempt to try and explain away what happen, or to try and take a victory lap that you’ve succeeded in getting the troops home, while stranding thousands of American citizens, and Afghani’s that had spent a lot of their lives helping America out is worthless. Images of planes leaving Kabul with Afghans hanging on to the side of them hoping to get to freedom will be the legacy of this president for time immemorial.

Adios, Andrew!

Today is the first day in about a decade or so that New Yorkers have not had Andrew Cuomo as their Governor. As of 12:01am this morning, Kathy Hochul was sworn in as the Governor of the Empire State, relieving Cuomo of his duties, two weeks after he announced his resignation due to sex scandals with at least eleven different women.

Cuomo used his last day in office to blast politicians in Albany, and Washington DC, as well as the liberal mainstream media, which turned on him after a long love affair. Cuomo did get one thing right in his 15 minute farewell address…he said, “The truth will ultimately come out”. He’s right…that usually happens.

And while everyone and their brother (not Chris Cuomo) has had their say about Andrew’s leaving, I have maybe a little different take on the whole affair. I have to say, I’m disgusted. No, I’m not disgusted that Andrew Cuomo resigned. I’m disgusted that he resigned for the wrong thing. He literally got away with murder by bowing to the lesser charges of sex scandal, as opposed to dealing with the 15,000 or so nursing home deaths that he had some part in causing when he decided to ship COVID patients to nursing homes, thus infecting the most vulnerable segments of our society.

I’ve been waiting for the whole nursing home scandal to come to fruition because I have firmly believed that if Cuomo was found guilty of actually making the order to send COVID patients in to infect senior citizens with compromised immune systems, he should be tried for at the very least second degree murder, and 15,000 charges of that.

It bothers me that the guy is going to be able to skate on that issue, while questioning when the sexual harassment thing changed so you couldn’t force yourself on women. It bothers me terribly that the families of those people living in nursing homes could very well have lost their loved ones much too soon, all because of a lame-brained decision that this ego-maniac came up with. And it bothers me to no end to hear that Cuomo, who’s net worth is around $5 million, received that much from his 2020 book, American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic. He got $3 million for an advance in 2020, and is due another $2 million up the road. That book sold less than 50,000 copies, which would mean Crown Publishing paid him about $100 per book sold. Of the $5 million, Cuomo donated $500,000 to charity. I bet that made the families of those killed by COVID in nursing homes feel much better, don’t you?

The stain on the New York Governor’s mansion isn’t going to go away anytime soon. Cuomo follows Eliot Spitzer in resigning over a sex scandal. Spitzer served for less than a year before being caught up in a prostitution ring. It will take a long while for the Cuomo name to actually gain back some of the luster lost over this scandal, and the ensuing nursing home scandal that has yet to be fully investigated and prosecuted. The final chapter may still see Andrew Cuomo wearing strips or at the very least, an orange jumpsuit. As he said, “The truth WILL ultimately come out!”

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

EXTRA! Cuomo Resigns!

You HAD to know this was coming, right? I mean, how many women need to come forward and accuse you of sexual misconduct, groping, or outright rape? How many nursing home deaths can be laid at your feet and still have you keep your job? Andrew Cuomo resigned as Governor of New York today. It wasn’t a surprise…in fact, it was long overdue.

When it became clear that after Attorney General, Letitia James’ report was damning to the Governor’s continued presence, it was just a matter of time before Cuomo would vacate the Governor’s mansion, either by choice or by force. He took the “honorable” way out and committed hari-kari.

It’s not like we all didn’t know this was going to happen, right? I mean, you DID know he was out as Governor, one way or another after James damning investigation slammed him, right? When the President of the United States, himself a sexual predator, as well as the Majority Leader of the Senate (and a New Yorker), and the Speaker of the House of Representatives all tell you to quit, the writing is pretty much on the wall.

The question isn’t whether or not Cuomo would keep his job. The question is, how does this escapade change the way politicians behave? Cuomo isn’t the first politician to sexually abuse aides and others under him. But moving forward, will this change anything? We didn’t see any change going back throughout history. Why should this be any different? Did it change anything when Al Franken had to leave the US Senate? How about Matt Gaetz? Or John Conyers? Nothing has changed.

But Cuomo was a guy that could have very easily won the Democrat nomination for President last year. He was sitting on top of the world because of his daily COVID briefings, which were about a thousand times better than what Donald Trump was doing. He was seen as a truly rising star in the Democrat party. Just a year later, it’s all come crashing down on him, forcing him into early retirement and the end of a political career that also most likely ruined a family dynasty in the Empire State.

If it can happen to Cuomo, what do we have to do to make sure this type of thing doesn’t happen to anyone else…that they are able to avoid that trap in the first place. It doesn’t just happen to Democrats either. In fact, over the past 10 or 11 years, there have been 20 instances of politicians on both sides of the aisle that have had sexual allegations thrown at them that ended up having some truth behind it. Cuomo is just the latest example.

But the Cuomo saga has been concluded…sort of. He still could face criminal sexual abuse charges in Albany. That is being investigated by the Sheriff there. And he could still face 15,000 charges of wrongful death of one type or another over his lame-brain decision to move COVID suffers into nursing homes to infect the most vulnerable population…and then hiding it from the world, about the numbers.

Let’s hope BOTH parties learn the lesson here. I doubt it, but I can hope, can’t I?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

What’s The Difference Between Cuomo & Biden?

So, Andrew Cuomo is facing the hot seat over sexual allegations that he wrongfully tried to impose himself on some 11 different women during his time in office as Governor of New York State. And according to all of the reports out there, he will most likely either be resigning (or maybe already has by the time this hits) or facing certain impeachment from the New York State Assembly for his actions. Of course, this has nothing to do with the 15,000 nursing home deaths that Cuomo has been accused to being tied to, since he ordered COVID patients be placed in nursing homes. That’s a different matter altogether and frankly should probably be tried criminally.

But the question I have, is what’s the difference between what Cuomo is alleged to have done with those 11 women, and what Joe Biden has done his entire career?

We’ve seen dozens of photos and videos of Biden smelling women’s hair as they try to pull away. He’s kissed how many? Certainly more than 11. In fact, 8 separate women have come forward accusing Biden of sexual misconduct. Tara Reade has been the most outspoken, but apparently, when there is a call for resignation or for impeachment, it needs to come from more than eight woman. It probably should be in the double digits, right?

Can someone please tell me the difference between these two men? They’ve both displayed sexual misconduct…both have admitted to inappropriately kissing people or touching people, or even having other sexual relations with others not wanting it. So, while Andrew Cuomo is under the gun in New York and is about ready to be booted from office, Biden appears to have outlived the calls for his resignation or impeachment. I guess it shows the hypocrisy of the left. They want Cuomo out because of sexual harassment, but they haven’t said “Boo!” about Biden’s sexual harassment. It hasn’t even been investigated. Oh, I know, press secretary, Jen Psaki has said in a White House briefing that “it’s been litigated”, but come on, people. If you’re guilty, you’re guilty. If you’re innocent, you’re innocent. There is no in between here.

At the very least, the Democrats in DC owe it to the American people to be forthright and honest about this if they want any credibility when it comes to claiming sexual harassment in the future. You can’t write a piece of fiction, as Christine Blasey Ford did, totally made up and fictitious, and still have credibility when it comes to people who obviously have had unwanted sexual advances from someone else in your own party. Biden’s case has yet to be fully investigated, and Tara Reade has been “Hillaryed” which is what Hillary Clinton did to any of the bimbo’s Bill had slept with, and then tried to come out to the press.

What’s good for the goose, is good for the Biden in this case. If Cuomo is going to be ousted from office for sex crimes and misbehavior, Joe Biden should be right on his heels. In fact, for Joe Biden to call for Cuomo’s resignation, as he, Chuckles Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi have all done recently is an affront to women everywhere. Joe, can you tell me the difference between what Cuomo did that you feel is bad enough to ask for his resignation, and what you have done, which somehow isn’t?

Biden is a sexual predator. There is no other way to say it. He, and Andrew Cuomo, and Al Franken, and several others caught up in the whole #MeToo movement that seemingly has died out, need to be erased from our society by not allowing them to lead anything any longer. The question is, when is that going to happen?

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

Cuomo’s Gone

If I’ve learned anything watching Democrats facing scandals, it’s this. There is a marked progression in the steps that are taken before the accused is booted out the door. First, the party rallies around the person. They laud them with compliments. They say they don’t believe the accuser for whatever reason. They say that they’ve known the person for decades and they’ve always told the truth. In light of the fiasco Democrats caused over the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing, they now have added that they should have an investigation (hoping that buys them time. The media all comes out in support of their comrade and say there is no way this person would do such a dastardly thing.

Then the tide slowly starts to turn.

Oh, it doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, after the initial bombshell of the scandal itself, there is a period of calm. The accused may even be lulled into a false sense that the whole thing is going away. It’s not. It’s just taking a breather. Then something else happens that either more people come forward attesting to the fact that the person is a monster, or the investigation yields proof of some sort that what was said is true.

That’s followed by a shameful wringing of hands and gnashing of the teeth. The party then sits in ashes covered only in sackcloth. Oh wait. That’s the Bible. Sorry…but the party does indeed can’t believe that the accused is guilty. But the calls come slowly at first, then the media jumps on the train and everyone is calling for the person to step down. It happened that way with Al Franken, the former comedian, and former Senator from Minnesota. And it’s that way with Andrew Cuomo. He’s in the “you’re toast” phase.

Attorney General, Letitia James is ready with her report, and apparently it’s pretty damning. CNN is privately suggesting the Cuomo’s brother Chris take some time off…a good long while so that he’s not tainted with this since he’s written his brother’s responses to the allegations from day one. Whoopi Goldberg of The View fame is being targeted as one that has abetted in the whole process since she hosted a fundraiser for Cuomo during the actual investigation. And now, 86 of the 150 members of the New York Assembly, more than what’s needed to call for impeachment, have said Cuomo will face that end to his career if he doesn’t step down once Jones’ report is made public.

For a guy that a year ago was being touted as a presidential possibility, and could easily have defeated Joe Biden in the primaries after his daily COVID briefings that were televised nationally, it’s quite the fall from grace. But the word is out on the street. This guy is poison. He needs to retire and do it quickly.

You know when the liberal snowflake media jumps on board, as they have, you’re not long for this world. Expect an Andrew Cuomo resignation speech sometime in the next week. And remember…you heard it here first!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

The Cuomo Saga Continues

You haven’t heard much about Andrew Cuomo recently, have you? That’s not because there hasn’t been stuff happening in the Empire State surrounding his possible impeachment or his many scandals. There continues to be at least two separate investigations going on. But you’re not hearing about it at all.

Why?

Well, media is funny in what they cover. They flit from one story to another like a moth to a flame. As they get bored with one, they move on to something else. That’s why blogs are so popular. You not only get the opinion that probably aligns with yours, you get facts behind these types of stories that have been put on the back burner or buried by the media altogether. But here’s what is going on.

Andrew Cuomo signed a bill the other day that basically is going to charge the taxpayers of New York, already one of the heaviest tax-burden states in our country, with even more. That’s because the State Assembly has passed a bill that would pay for the funding of not only the impeachment, but the trial that would follow should that become necessary. And Cuomo signed the bill into law.

Most politicians that are facing not one but several scandals involving sexual abuse and one big one involving COVID deaths in nursing homes due a directive handed down by Cuomo himself would be resigning at this point. But with Cuomo’s massive ego, there is no quitting. There is just doubling down. And the likelihood of this coming to a conclusion before next year’s Governor’s race (in which Cuomo has said he intends to run) will be unlikely. That means he will be running for reelection as Governor with several scandals hanging over his head.

Is it smart?

Most politicians would say no. It most certainly is going to make him win a primary to become the Democrat candidate for the office. There are already several Dems’ lining up hoping to have a shot at the Governor’s mansion in Albany. And of course, the Republicans are hoping to cash in on the scandals saying that you just can’t trust Democrats to do anything right.

But will it matter?

New York is such a blue state because of New York City, and Buffalo, that the rest of the state pretty much doesn’t matter when it comes to statewide elections. Hell, New York City alone has about eight and a half million people. The state of New York has about 19 million, which means that New York City accounts for about 45% of the vote. Now you add in Long Island (also very liberal), and Buffalo (ditto) and you can see that the odds of a Republican winning a Governor’s race in New York becomes slim and none…and slim just left town. In fact, with the exception of George Pataki, you have to go back to Malcolm Wilson, who served one year as Governor from 1973 to 1974 as the last Republican Governor of New York. If you want someone who like, served a full term you go back to Herbert Lehman. That was back in the 1930’s. So, no…it won’t matter.

Sometimes, as Ron White likes to say, you just can’t fix stupid.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
