Karma really is hitting New York governor Cuomo hard for lying about nursing home COVID numbers. Not one. Not two. But three women have now come forward about sexual harassment they have faced while under his employ.

The situation is so bad for Cuomo that even Joe Biden has spoken out in favor of a full investigation into the allegations, which include forced kisses, sexual remarks, and invitations to play “strip poker.” Cuomo seemingly admitted to the misconduct, calling his disgusting behavior “good-natured” and explaining that he likes to “tease people” in the office. But there was nothing good-natured about his interactions with any of the women, including the third.

Anna Ruch says she met Cuomo at a wedding reception in New York in 2019. Cuomo toasted her friends — and when Ruch went to thank him, he decided to try to take some quid pro quo:

Cuomo put his hand on her bare lower back, Ruch told the Times.

“I promptly removed his hand with my hand, which I would have thought was a clear enough indicator that I was not wanting him to touch me,” she said.

Ruch said she moved his hand off her back, and Cuomo allegedly told her that she seemed “aggressive” before placing his hands on her cheeks and asking her if he could kiss her.

“He said, ‘Can I kiss you?’” Ruch told the Times. “I felt so uncomfortable and embarrassed when really he is the one who should have been embarrassed.”

“I was so confused and shocked and embarrassed,” Ruch says. “I turned my head away and didn’t have words in that moment.” The interaction was loud enough for her friend to hear, and that friend has corroborated Ruch’s version of events.

“It’s the act of impunity that strikes me,” Ruch told the Times. “I didn’t have a choice in that matter. I didn’t have a choice in his physical dominance over me at that moment. And that’s what infuriates me. And even with what I could do, removing his hand from my lower back, even doing that was not clear enough.”

Unlike Cuomo’s other accusers, Ruch did not work the the Governor. In other words, he is a scumbag everywhere — not just at work.

Democrats are keeping National Guard troops in Washington D.C. as part of their dog and pony show intended to portray conservatives as terrorists. Despite the small number of people — one of whom was murdered by D.C. police even though she was unarmed — who entered the Capitol and the suspicious number of Democrats arrested for doing so, leftists have worked overtime to paint us as the enemy of America.

According to President Trump, Nancy Pelosi shot down his request for 10,000 National Guard troops — but the National Guard didn’t arrive in significant numbers until after a crowd was allowed to walk through the Capitol with no resistance. In some cases, D.C. police stepped aside to allow protesters through. But now? The National Guard has swarmed D.C. since the incident, being forced to sleep outdoors and in parking garages with overflowing port-a-potties. You might assume Democrats have learned something from the backlash following those revelations. But no — now, they are serving the National Guard tainted food.

The Michigan National Guard has spoken out, revealing that its members are getting sick because of the food Democrats have been serving them. WXYZ reports:

A whistleblower is telling 7 Action News nearly 75 meals were thrown out Sunday after metal shavings were found, other meals showed up undercooked making soldiers sick.

A staff sergeant with the Michigan National Guard, whose identity 7 Action News is protecting, says the problem is not isolated.

“Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.”

The food concerns going beyond quality – quantity is an issue as well. Breakfast is an example.

On top of that, some meals have been a disgrace. “You were getting maybe a Danish and some sort of juice” for breakfast, the whistleblower reveals. “And then we had certain days where it was clearly a dinner roll and Sunny D.” The news organization obtained photos of the disgraceful and potentially deadly meals:

Over a dozen soldiers got sick from the food, with many ending up in the hospital. After reports began to surface about the conditions, the National Guard decided to punish the people protecting D.C. from a manufactured terrorist “threat.”

“Now after the raw meat yesterday for dinner they have told us not to eat the meals for the next two days and are giving us MRE’s instead,” the whistleblower said Monday. “Soldiers are now paying for all their meals for the next two days in order to get real food.” Watch a report on this travesty below:

Slavery ended seemingly forever ago and the nation has moved on. Black Americans have equal rights to every other American, protections in place to ensure things stay that way, and we’ve even had a black President. Still, people who have never been slaves have been for a long time demanding to be paid for what people who are no longer alive endured. The Biden Administration seems poised to cave on this — in a way.

Biden plans to provide free college tuition to students who attend historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) as a way for white people who have never owned slaves to apologize for slavery. The Daily Caller reports:

President Joe Biden’s administration will move forward with policies beneficial to African-Americans as Congress considers creating a commission to study the merits of direct reparation payments, White House adviser Cedric Richmond told Axios in an interview. The House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Feb. 17 regarding legislation that would create the commission.

“If you start talking about free college tuition to [historically black colleges and universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way,” Richmond said when asked about reparations, according to Axios.

“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” Richmond says. “We have to do stuff now.”

“We don’t want to wait on a study,” Richmond adds. “We’re going to start acting now.” Democrats are currently trying to pass legislation to provide free college at HBCUs, but the administration refuses to rule out going farther. Direct payments to African-Americans are a distinct possibility.

Thousands a day are dying of COVID, but Democrats are focused on racial politics and providing special favors based on skin color. It’s ridiculous. It’s unethical. It’s unconstitutional. We are all Americans, regardless of race — and all this does is treat some people better than others based solely on that one factor.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is on the ropes. While it initially seemed like he intended to lie his way out of trouble when two women stepped forward about his decision to use his position to sexually harass them.

Recently, two women stepped forward about Cuomo’s inappropriate actions. After the first revealed, with corroboration, that Cuomo attempted a forced kiss and made a litany of sexual remarks — including an invitation to play strip poker — a second came out to say that she, too, was harassed by the governor of New York. What’s particularly troubling is that these aren’t ancient accusations. All of this happened relatively recently. The situation is so bad that even hypocrite Joe Biden, who spent last election season sending his cronies to attack Tara Reade when she made similar allegations against him, said that Cuomo should absolutely be investigated. Cuomo authorized a shady “investigation” into himself, so it definitely appeared that he intended to lie. But now, it seems that he plans to just admit to it instead.

After Biden and other Democrats threw him under the bus, Cuomo issued a statement in which he appears to accidentally admit — but attempt to explain away — what happened. Cuomo says that he was just “being playful” and “good-natured” as he “teased” staffers. The women who have stepped forward, he says “misinterpreted” his disgusting actions as “unwanted flirtation.” Politico reports:

Cuomo, facing increasing criticism of his fumbled attempts to hand the issue off to an independent investigator, admitted Sunday evening that he likes to “tease people” in the office.

“I now understand that my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended,” Cuomo said. “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation. To the extent anyone felt that way, I am truly sorry about that.”

Unfortunately for Cuomo, no one is fooled. “This is an absolutely disgusting, gaslighting response,” Erica Vladimer, a member of a Sexual Harassment Working Group in New York, said via Twitter. “No ownership of his actions, blaming his victims for ‘misinterpreting’ his ‘playfulness.’”

“I do it in public and in private,” Cuomo says. “You have seen me do it at briefings hundreds of times. I have teased people about their personal lives, their relationships, about getting married or not getting married. I mean no offense and only attempt to add some levity and banter to what is a very serious business.” However, he acknowledges that he has sometimes been  “insensitive or too personal and that some of my comments, given my position, made others feel in ways I never intended.”

“To be clear, I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable, but these are allegations that New Yorkers deserve answers to,” Cuomo adds. “That’s why I have asked for an outside, independent review that looks at these allegations.”

There is one path now. Cuomo must resign — immediately.

President Trump has spoken out about his role, or lack thereof, in the January 6 protest in which numerous Democrats were arrested alongside a lot of nonvoters and some Republicans after what appear to be outside agitators convinced the crowd to enter the Capitol. It was clear that law enforcement was woefully unprepared, and multiple people lost their lives — including an unarmed peaceful protester named Ashli Babbitt. Democrats say that Trump is at fault, but the President revealed in a Fox News appearance what really happened.

While the media claimed Trump was watching the protest on TV and celebrated it, he says that is galaxies away from the truth. Trump told host Steve Hilton:

“Well, that’s incorrect reporting. First of all I wasn’t watching TV. I turned it on later on when I heard about it and did a lot of moves. You know, we said to the Department of Defense, the top person, days before we had the rally, cuz that rally was massive…(Trump comments on large rally crowd)…and I said that I think you should have ten thousand, I think I gave the number, I definitely gave the number of ten thousand National Guardsmen, I think you have ten thousand of the National Guard ready. They took that number, from what I understand they gave it to the people at the Capitol which is controlled by Pelosi and I heard they rejected it because they didn’t think it looked good. So, you know, that was a big mistake.”

 “I hate to see it, I think it’s terrible, I hate to see it” Trump says of the Capitol incident, but reminds us that Democrats have a “double standard” in their reaction to this versus Antifa and BLM tearing up cities every time they get angry. Watch the interview below:

A straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Sunday revealed that if President Trump chooses to run in 2024, he will likely be the nominee.

Support for the President was impressive at CPAC, with 97 percent of those present saying they approve of President Trump. A whopping 87% say they approve of the job he did as President, and 68% say Trump should run for President again. According to Fox News, if the 2024 GOP primary was held today, President Trump would be chosen to challenge Biden for the Oval Office:

Former President Donald Trump, in results announced Sunday, won the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) straw poll with 55% of attendees saying they’d vote for him if the 2024 GOP primary were today.

Trump got 55% of the vote in the poll in which he was included, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in second place at 21%. 

A poll that didn’t include President Trump placed DeSantis in the lead with 43% of the vote, but it is clear that people are overwhelmingly behind the President. This poll has South Dakota Governor Kristy Noem in second with 11% and Donald Trump Jr. in third with 8%.

Republicans who oppose Trump did very poorly. Mitt Romney got .3% of the votes, while Maryland Governor Larry Hogan earned .1%.

“Look, you’re not going to get the Republican nomination being a never-Trumper,’ says American Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp. “You’re not going to get the Republican nomination if you’re not a strong conservative. So all of that kind of courting, it’s appropriate that it starts at CPAC.”

Though some in the Republican Party oppose President Trump, CPAC has made it clear that, as Schlapp says, we won’t get anywhere if we oppose Donald J. Trump.

Joe Manchin may have voted to impeach Trump, but he isn’t entirely crazy. In what he calls a stance against “extremism” in the Democrat Party, Manchin announced he will fight the Democrats’ plans to do away with the legislative filibuster and push through whatever nonsensical and wasteful bills they want.

“If I haven’t said it very plain, maybe Sen. McConnell hasn’t understood, I want to basically say it for you. That I will not vote in this Congress, that’s two years, right? I will not vote” to change the filibuster, the West Virginia Democrat said in an interview earlier this week. “And I hope with that guarantee in place he will work in a much more amicable way.”

Manchin’s commitment to at least a level playing field in legislating did not go unnoticed. Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List thanked Manchin for refusing to kill the filibuster. Activists lined courthouses in three West Virginia cities, beginning in Charleston and ending in Wheeling.

Marilyn Musgrave, vice president of government affairs for the organization, says that the filibuster is the only thing stopping Democrats from a full-on pro-abortion agenda. “And yet we have Joe Manchin courageous enough to stand up to his own party and say he’s going to do the right thing and I tell you the people of West Virginia agree with him,” she says.

“This is so significant in saving babies that have not yet been born,” Musgrave adds. “This is a strong pro-life state and he’s representing those values very well when he retains the filibuster.”

The filibuster requires 60 “yea” votes and prevents the Democrats from using their majority to do whatever they want with no support from people who represent everyday Americans. Watch a report on Manchin’s shocking decision to do the right thing below:

An unlikely figure has stepped out to say that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s multiple sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — Joe Biden. Biden, who is internationally infamous for groping and sniffing women and girls without their consent, suddenly thinks credible sexual harassment allegations should be investigated — something he didn’t quite agree with when he was accused of similar stuff by former staffer Tara Reade.

During the last election cycle, Reade came out about a time when Biden forced a kiss on her and touched her inappropriately while she was working on his staff. The allegations were credible right down to an old phone call from Reade’s deceased mother speaking out about how her daughter was treated. But Biden didn’t want to hear about that. Instead, he had his former staff smear the poor woman, who just wanted to make the public aware of what she went through. But Cuomo? He’s not Biden, so the President* is OK with throwing him under the bus. During a press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that Biden supports women who speak out (once again, something we know is not true):

“President Biden has been consistent that he believes that every woman should be heard, should be treated with respect and with dignity. Charlotte should be treated with respect and dignity. So should Lindsey. There should be an independent review looking into these allegations, and that’s certainly something he supports and we believe should move forward as quickly as possible.”

Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment by two women. The first, Lindsey Boylan says he invited her to play strip poker, forced a kiss on her, and other disgusting things. The second says Cuomo regularly made inappropriate remarks, including grilling her about whether or not she has had sex with older men.

Cuomo says both women are lying, but has authorized an investigation into his actions.

“I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo says. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.” We’re certain that this investigation will be every bit as above board and legitimate as the Russia investigation — except the goal here will be to make evicence go away rather than invent it.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s life keeps getting worse. Not only does he have to deal with getting caught manipulating nursing home COVID numbers to make himself look good, but now former staffers are coming out about sexual harassment they have faced while working under him.

Recently, a former Cuomo staffe spoke out about weird, predatory treatment she dealt with while working for him — treatment that included an attempted forced kiss and invitations to play strip poker, among other things.

But now Lindsey Boylan, whose allegations have been corroborated by at least one other former staffer, isn’t the only one who is telling the world about what happened. Newsmax reports:

A second former aide has come forward with sexual harassment allegations against New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who responded with a statement Saturday saying he never made advances toward her and never intended to be inappropriate.

Charlotte Bennett, a health policy adviser in the Democratic governor’s administration until November, told The New York Times that Cuomo asked her inappropriate questions about her sex life, including whether she had ever had sex with older men.

Cuomo, true to form, says Bennett is lying, but that she was a “hardworking and valued member of our team during COVID” who has “every right to speak out.” But of course if someone is lying, as he says she is, they have no right to speak out. Libel laws exist for a reason. Only honest discourse deserves to make it public, so it is strange that he says she has the right to make the allegations publicly.

“I never made advances toward Ms. Bennett nor did I ever intend to act in any way that was inappropriate,” Cuomo’s says. “The last thing I would ever have wanted was to make her feel any of the things that are being reported.”

To buy himself time, Cuomo is having himself investigated to find out of he did the thing he says he didn’t do. “I ask all New Yorkers to await the findings of the review so that they know the facts before making any judgements,” Cuomo said. “I will have no further comment until the review has concluded.”

Honest people act quickly to control the investigation into allegations against them, right?

What a shock! Democrats call conservatives like Donald Trump corrupt, but that is entirely projection. We see their corruption on a daily basis, including in the new COVID-19 bill that gives Nancy Pelosi a new subway at the expense of children who are impacted by the pandemic. In every city across the nation that is run by Democrats, we see it. In fact, the three most corrupt cities in the country are run by Democrats.

Chicago. Los Angeles. New York City. You’re familiar with all of these names. After all, whenever TV or movies need to tell a good story about criminal activity and police corruption, those cities are the natural choices.

WTTW News reports that Chciago tops the country in terms of corruption:

In 2019, there were 26 public corruption convictions in the Northern District of Illinois, which includes all of Chicago and the northern third of Illinois — double the number recorded in 2018, according to the report.

The rest of the state had six additional public corruption convictions in 2019 for a state total of 32, according to Simpson’s findings based on the most recent DOJ data available.

The report, co-authored by Marco Rosaire Rossi and Thomas J. Gradel, uses a formula that compares the number of each area’s corruption convictions with its population to create the ranking system that incorporates data from 1976 to 2019.

The report cites examples like Democrat former state senator Martin Sandoval’s bribery conviction. After Chicago come Los Angeles followed by New York, Democrat haven Miami, Washington D.C., Newark, New Jersey, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

All of these cities are corrupt, and all of them are very Democrat-friendly areas. Philadelphia, for instance, was instrumental in helping Joe Biden achieve “victory” in the 2020 election when a suspicious amount of votes appeared in the dead of night.

Democrats are corrupt. That’s no secret. But this report helps shed light on how pervasive this corruption is in every Democrat-run city across the nation.
