Surprise, surprise. Yet another woman is now accusing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment. And while Cuomo says that he didn’t touch anyone inappropriately as he stubbornly refuses to resign from his role as the head of a coverup of nursing home deaths under his watch, that’s what the latest accuser says happened.

The Albany Times Union reports that Cuomo summoned her to his mansion, where he touched her without her consent. And on the timeline, this accusation is by far the most recent. The woman, who has not been named, says that this happened in late 2020 — right before the beginning of the pandemic:

The alleged incident took place after the woman, a member of the governor’s Executive Chamber staff, had been summoned to the mansion to assist the governor with a work-related matter. The woman’s supervisors recently became aware of the allegation and alerted the governor’s counsel of it on Monday.

An official close to the matter on Tuesday confirmed to the Times Union that the new allegation had been made, although Cuomo, during a news conference hours later, denied knowledge of it.

“First, I’m not aware of any other claim,” Cuomo says. “As I said last week, this is very simple: I never touched anyone inappropriately. … I never made any inappropriate advances … (and) no one ever told me at the time that I made them feel uncomfortable. Obviously, there are people who said after the fact they felt uncomfortable.” Notably, Cuomo did not deny touching the woman. As the sixth woman stepped out to speak up, Donald Trump Jr. asked a very good question: “I wonder how many more there are?”

Good question. Cuomo finds himself embroiled in scandals, most of which involve former staffers and others he could bully into submission. But we must also remember the big one — the one the sexual harassment allegations distract from. His responsibility for nursing home deaths as he made bad decisions — lethal decisions — then lied to cover them up. Just like he is attempting to do now with the numerous women who have spoken out about his actions.

Last year, Democrat Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer issued an executive order that had everyone — liberals, conservatives, horses, and any other group one can imagine — questioning her fitness for office and her status as a human being. This policy contributed to nursing home deaths at unimaginable levels. Now she may have to finally pay the piper for her irresponsibility.

Despite warnings that this was a bad idea, Whitmer issued an executive order prohibiting long-term-care facilities like nursing homes from telling “residents who tested positive for COVID-19 regardless of whether they were contagious” to quarantine elsewhere despite the particularly high danger presented to residents at nursing homes, who are among the most vulnerable among us. TheBlaze reports that the damage Whitmer did cannot be accurately calculated, largely because of the government’s reticence to provide data:

The exact number of long-term facility residents who died of COVID-19 in Michigan is not known, and state Republican lawmakers say Whitmer’s administration is not disclosing critical data. As of the end of February, state data indicated that more than 5,500 Michiganders had perished from COVID-19 in long-term facilities, WDIV-TV reported, or about one-third of all COVID-19 deaths in Michigan.

But Whitmer can’t cover up her crimes forever, and Macomb County prosecutor Peter Lucido says that he’s open to prosecuting her once evidence surfaces.

“If we find there’s been willful neglect of office, if we find there’s been reckless endangerment of a person’s life by bringing them in, then we would move forward with charges against the Governor,” Lucido says. Of course, we would. Nobody’s above the law in this state.”

According to WXYZ, Lucido asks Michiganders  “who lost loved ones to COVID as residents or staff inside nursing homes should go back to get the vital information about the circumstances of their death and take that to local police and make a complaint as a wrongful death” to help further matters.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, a Democrat, is resisting all efforts to bring Whitmer to justice, however. “If you can give us some evidence that there’s been violations of the law, and you can give us some evidence that there was not just conduct that, again, is bad policy, but conduct that violates state or federal statutes, let us know about it for certain,” she says. “But if not, I get weary of the constant calls for our department to investigate things that are not crimes.”

Despite her policies killing people, Whitmer calls Lucido’s remarks “shameful political attacks based in neither fact nor reality.” Whitmer can hide, but she can’t evade justice forever.

Hillary Clinton just can’t let go of the fact that Donald Trump took her to the cleaners in 2016. In an interview with the Washington Post, the weird lady who accidentally unified Trump supporters under he “Deplorables” banner with her ridiculous “basket” remark decided that once again she would open her mouth about American citizens who didn’t want her to be President and instead chose the other guy.

“Well, I don’t think about it that way,” Clinton said when asked if she felt “vindicated” for her “basket of deplorables” comment. “I am profoundly saddened by what he has catalyzed and the allies that he has in certain parts of the media, both traditional and online — the way he has, in effect, created a cult against the fundamental values and norms of the United States.”

“It is really troubling to see the Republican Party turn themselves into a cult and basically pledge allegiance, not to the United States of America, but to Donald Trump,” Clinton said in the interview, which was published on International Women’s Day. “Something I do not understand, I cannot accept…”

“Even I don’t pretend to have imagined that he would incite a riot and an attack on our Capitol in an effort to reverse an election he clearly lost,” Clinton says, falsely accusing the President of inciting a riot when he in fact tried to calm the crowd. “It’s of no comfort to me that I and others warned about him because the damage that he’s done is so profound.”

Clinton is once again embarrassing herself. Voters chose Trump over here. But to Ms. Clinton, anyone who isn’t far-Left is too “deplorable” to matter and those who don’t support her or Joe Biden are simply a “cult.” There’s no explaining how Democrats feel it is OK to slander those with whom they disagree, but that’s the only play in their book. Watch this monumental Clinton brand of stupidity below:

A total of 12 states are suing the Biden Administration over a recent executive order that they say can have dire consequences for the country. The order expands the federal government’s regulatory power to such a degree that “overreaching” is an understatement.

Fox Business reports that the lawsuit, filed by Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt and joined by Attorneys General in Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah, tackles Biden’s latest effort to act like a dictator head-on:

It alleges that Biden’s Executive Order 13990, titled “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,” does not have the authority to issue binding numbers for the “social cost” of greenhouse gases to be used in federal regulations.

The breakdown of the social costs shows $269 billion for carbon dioxide, $990 billion for methane, and $8.24 trillion for nitrous oxide – totaling approximately $9.5 trillion, according to the lawsuit, which cited interim values determined by an interagency working group that was created by Biden’s order.

Schmitt said that those potential regulations will stifle manufacturing and harm agriculture in Missouri, where state figures show that hundreds of thousands of people work in those industries.

“Under President Biden’s executive order, which he didn’t have the authority to enact, these hard-working Missourians who have lived and worked this land for generations, could be left in the dust,” Schmitt says. “In practice, this enormous figure will be used to justify an equally enormous expansion of federal regulatory power that will intrude into every aspect of Americans’ lives— from their cars, to their refrigerators and homes, to their grocery and electric bills.”

The lawsuit claims that Biden’s order will be used to inflict untold billions or trillions of dollars of damage to the U.S. economy for decades to come.” In addition, it violates the separation of powers, “the most fundamental bulwark of liberty.”

As states continue to fight back, Biden is perfectly displaying the corrupt, heavy-handed approach of the Democrat Party — one that refuses to compromise on anything and that is willing to violate the Constitution at will.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s brother Chris has recently come under fire for refusing to cover the five women (and counting) who have accused the Governor of sexual harassment. The latter Cuomo now has a scandal of his own outside of his unwillingness to criticize his brother after spending months conducting fluff interviews to prop him up.

CNN’s Cuomo, in appearance with African-American Don Lemon, joked that he is “black on the inside” — a liberal fury-inducing remark accompanied by a cringeworthy rendition of “Good Times.”

While liberals would be erupting in anger if President Trump or any conservative said that in an interview, Lemon gives Cuomo a total pass on the comment. But the cancel police nonetheless came out in full force to denounce the obvious joke.

“It’s f*cking offensive,” says Sister2Sister managing editor Aisha Staggers. “Black isn’t something you can just say you feel you are inside without having to deal with the racism that comes with being physically Black on the outside. This is cultural appropriation.”

“I’m not here for that nonsense,” tweeted the Reverend Mary Daniels. “@CNN needs to have some sensitivity training with their on-air personalities.”

“I live, work, and worship in a blue collar Black community.,” she added in a later tweet. “My Black friends sometimes say I was poured in the wrong color body. But I wouldn’t ever presume to say that about myself on television.”

One hand, it seems like the Cuomos are competing for who can be the worst person alive. This is hilarious, and we absolutely should appreciate the irony of a proponent of cancel culture getting caught up in it. Like his brother, Chris Cuomo is facing demands for his resignation. But we’re not the Left. While it’s a good idea to appreciate the humor of the situation, we must remember that this was a joke — a bad one, but a joke nonetheless.

There are many reasons for Cuomo — either one — to resign, but this isn’t one of them.

President Biden’s latest executive order is aimed at securing the 2024 election by opening up access to an often unthought-of voting bloc: criminals on probation and still in prison. It’s clear after 2020 that Democrats will do anything to win — even break the law — but now they are going so far as to use actual criminals to pad their numbers.

A White House “fact” sheet lays out Bide’s plan very well:

“The order will direct the Attorney General to establish procedures to provide educational materials related to voter registration and voting, and to the extent practicable, to facilitate voter registration, for all eligible individuals in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons.”

In other words, Biden knows he will need the help of criminals to win the next election. The order also requires the Attorney General to help prisoners obtain identification in cases where voter ID is required. And naturally, it wouldn’t be a Biden executive order if he didn’t require voting by mail to be made available to criminals as well.

“Every eligible voter should be able to vote and have it counted,” Biden says. “If you have the best ideas, you have nothing to hide. Let the people vote.” Apparently one of his “best ideas” for victory is to make it easy for shady and proven untrustworthy individuals to cast their votes for him.

“In 2020 — with our very democracy on the line — even in the midst of a pandemic – more Americans voted than ever before,” Biden says. “Yet instead of celebrating this powerful demonstration of voting — we saw an unprecedented insurrection on our Capitol and a brutal attack on our democracy on January 6th. A never-before-seen effort to ignore, undermine and undo the will of the people.”

Watch Biden try to explain his actions below:

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo refused to resign after three women came forward about the sexual harassment they endured at his hands. Many of the details are unsettling at best, yet Cuomo says resigning because he did terrible things while serving badly as Governor would interfere with his ability to “do the job the people of the state elected [him] to do.” But what about when the total becomes five women he has harassed?

“It was unintentional, and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it. I feel embarrassed by it,” Cuomo said recently while addressing the allegations. Despite his admission to the behavior, he insists that he “didn’t know” he made anyone feel uncomfortable. “”I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone pain,” he says. “That is the last thing I would want to do.”

Former press aide Karen Hinton has now spoken out, saying Cuomo repeatedly and inappropriately hugged her, which made her feel uncomfortable — and probably made it difficult, to use Cuomo’s words, to “do the job” she needed to do. She says Cuomo forced her into a “very long, too long, too tight, too intimate” embrace in a dimly-lit hotel room and became aggressive when she pulled away from him.  “I thought at that moment it could lead to a kiss, it could lead to other things, so I just pull away again, and I leave,” she says. This occurred while Cuomo led the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in 2000.

Cuomo, of course, says “this did not happen.”

Another accuser, Ana Liss, worked under Cuomo from 2013-2015. She says he would ask if she had a boyfriend and kiss her hand — actions that are, according to her, “not appropriate, really, in any setting.”

Cuomo remains defiant in the face of this and his “other scandal” — the one in which he lied about COVID numbers in nursing homes to make himself look good. He truly is shameless.

The Left likes to paint us as terrorists — especially after the January 6 incident at the Capitol. A crowd of patriots marched along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan toward Trump Tower as a show of support for President Trump.

Protesters carried a massive Trump 2024 flag that read “Save America.” Unfortunately, the real terrorists — Antifa and BLM — couldn’t leave well enough alone.

Trump supporters remained peaceful and there were many flags on display — including one accurately depicting Nancy Pelosi as a demon. Antifa and BLM viciously attacked the crowd, which was doing nothing more than marching and chanting “Trump 2024.”

The New York Police Department says that one officer was injured for “suspected bleach being thrown in his eyes” while attempting to stop the melee between “anti-police protesters and pro-Trump protesters.” At least six Antifa/BLM thugs were arrested for attacking the peaceful rally.

Democrats love to say that we are terrorists. But it wasn’t us tearing apart cities across America the entire last summer. That was Antifa and BLM and their Democrat allies. It’s unfortunate, but no matter what we do the leftists and their friends in the media will forever portray us as the enemy of America. But that’s not true. We’re their enemy. The enemy they close. The enemy they will forever blame for everything. We’re their Emmanuel Goldstein, and we will always be that.

It’s time for Americans to wake up and rally against the Left’s hate. We will never come together as a country if they keep us fighting with one another. So much for Joe Biden’s “unity.”

Democrats have jammed a lot of crazy things into the latest COVID-19 relief bill. Among them is abortion funding, which would have accomplished a dream of the Left — government-funded baby killing. Fortunately, Rand Paul stepped up and put a stop to it.

A provision of the bill would have allowed what is effectively the Walmart of abortion to receive money through the Paycheck Protection Program, which is intended to keep small businesses afloat during the pandemic. The plan would have treated each Planned Parenthood location as “separate and distinct entities,,” making them each eligible for taxpayer money.

“Democrats knew this was never about COVID relief or helping small businesses,” Paul says. “It was a shameless attempt to fund their radical agenda on the taxpayers’ backs, and I was successful in preventing that from happening by stopping these funds from going to abortion mills.”

Fox reports that Paul reminded his fellow lawmakers of the original intent of the PPP which is to “limit large and well-financed groups from receiving a loan and instead provide relief to small businesses affected by COVID-19.” Ultimately. the provision that would have waived certain rules that Paul says would “only benefit” Planned Parenthood was removed from the bill.

“While Congressional Republicans continue to focus on baseless political attacks in the middle of a public health crisis, Planned Parenthood health centers across the country continue to provide essential healthcare in their communities,” the abortion provider said in a tantrum following the decision.

Rand Paul helped to avert disaster. Unfortunately for Democrats, they don’t possess the numbers to just shove through whatever they want. There are still enough patriots around to keep the Left from hurting the country with their crazy and unethical special interests.

Whether a person is gay or not doesn’t matter. As you probably noticed during the past two election cycles, President Trump managed to amass a lot of support in the LGBTQ community. Let’s be clear: that support was higher for Democrats, especially Barack Obama when he was running for re-election in 2012 and announced for purely political purposes that he supports same-sex marriage. But many forget that Obama’s stance shifed suddenly when he needed the poll numbers. Now, a new book reveals that his stance hasn’t shifted all that much — at least behind the scenes.

“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.” This quote isn’t from Pat Robertson. It’s not from Lindsey Graham. It’s not from any conservative. These words were spoken by Barack Obama in 2008. In 1996, however, when asked about his stance on gay marriage by a Chicago-area gay newspaper, he said, “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” In a later questionnaire for the same newspaper, he said “Undecided” in 1998. Later, he said he favored civil unions, but not marriage. “I am a fierce supporter of domestic-partnership and civil-union laws. I am not a supporter of gay marriage…” he said in 2004 before settling back on “I believe marriage is between a man and a woman,” which he repeated during an appearance on MTV. As you can see, Obama’s belief on the subject shifts seemingly constantly — and his loyalty to the gay community with it.

Now, having apparently settled on “gay marriage is fine” for political purposes, one might expect Obama to support a gay man for President. After all, if he’s good enough to get married, he’s good enough to be President, right? Not according to Obama. “Lucky: How Joe Biden Barely Won the Presidency,” by the Hill’s Amie Parnes and NBC’s Jonathan Allen, show that Obama was still the same old homophobic bigot he’s always been in 2019.

During a meeting with elite black donors, Obama shared his thoughts on Pete Buttigieg’s presidential prospects. Via The Hill:

“He’s thirty-eight,” Obama said, pausing for dramatic effect, “but he looks thirty.” The audience laughed. Obama was on a roll, using the tone of light ridicule he some-times pointed at himself— “ big ears” and “a funny name,” he’d said so many times before. Now, it was directed at Buttigieg. “He’s the mayor of a small town,” the former president continued. “He’s gay,” Obama said, “and he’s short.” More laughter.

Only months earlier, Buttigieg had sat in Obama’s postpresidential office in Washington seeking counsel on how to maintain equanimity in the face of homophobia on the campaign trail. Now, behind his back, Obama was riffing on him to some of the wealthiest Black men in America at a time when Buttigieg had been dubbed “Mayo Pete” by critics who believed he couldn’t connect with African American voters.

That’s right. The President liberals credit with gay marriage said that Buttigieg is too gay to be President. And he did so after the man came to him for advice in handling the very brand of homophobia Obama exhibited in that speech.

No matter your views on homosexuality, one thing is certain. Obama built much of his reputation on his alleged support for the community. He did this despite a mountain of evidence that he was not genuine. After people gave him the benefit of the doubt, he betrayed that community broadly and one member of it specifically — a man who sought his guidance and trusted him. That’s the real Barack Obama.
