Social Justice Warrior Kim Kardashian Files For Divorce From Kanye West

Social Justice Warrior Kim Kardashian Files For Divorce From Kanye West

“Kimye” is kaput.

When being a celebrity billionaire doesn’t make it easy enough to stay together for your four children, then there may be little hope for the rest of us, because seeking fame and social justice while raising her children with their father was just too difficult for her.

Kardashian goes for her third divorce and turns to the media to play the victim.  However, she is still showing off her body online to push leftist policies and get ckicks. Hours before the notice of her divorce, Kardashian-West was pushing Bill Gates’s “Plant-Based” diet, seen almost naked and posting about playing “dress up”.  Great.

“Kardashian, who is training to be a social justice lawyer, made her money through her TV series, as a social media influencer, and by developing a lucrative line of cosmetics and foundation garments,” Reuters reported.

Celebrity website TMZ cited unidentified sources as saying the split was amicable and that Kardashian had asked for joint custody of the couple’s four children. The grounds for the divorce were not immediately known.

Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from Kanye West Friday after 6 1/2 years of marriage; court records show on one of the most followed celebrity unions of the 21st century, the marriage of a reality TV superstar and a hip-hop and fashion phenomenon with four kids, a vast fortune to split and even more fame.

One of West’s last posts on Twitter in November was about his attempt at a Presidential run:

“It was the first marriage for the West, 43, and the third for Kardashian, 40. While the union wasn’t long, it outlasted the predictions of many cynics who thought doom was inevitable given the two oversized personalities, West’s well-known volatility and the fact that Kardashian’s previous marriage, to former NBA player Kris Humphries, was fleetingly brief,” Bloomberg News reported.

Rumors of stress on the relationship became mainstream gossip when Kardashian entered political life, along with Kanye who later would become a Presidential candidate.

Perhaps Kardashian was upset with West’s support of President Donald J. Trump? Or his attempt at Libertarian-Conservative politics? The rumor was that she was upset with “Ye”‘s Christian faith and politics.

Unfortunately, the gossip was true.

After the election, “The couple appeared to grow further apart with the 21-time Grammy winner spending most of his time at his ranch in Wyoming and Kardashian remaining in their Calabasas mansion outside Los Angeles,” one Hollywood reporter said.

Both Kardashian and West are reported to be billionaires. West made his money through his music as well as his Yeezy fashion and sneaker line.

A new report claims that Kanye West isn’t in the best shape amid rumors that he and Kim Kardashian have reportedly divorced, allowing Kim to look like both the alpha woman and the victim.

According to People magazine on Wednesday (Feb. 17), a source close to ‘Ye says that the rapper is going through it as he reportedly comes to terms with the state of him and Kim’s marriage.

“Kanye is not doing well,” the source told the outlet. Who knows what that means? The media does love their gossip, however.

Reports in US media suggest the reality star, 40, has requested joint legal and physical custody of their children. Neither has publicly commented.

In 2019, West unsuccessfully ran for US president. During his campaign, a series of erratic public appearances and online postings by the rapper sparked concern and led Kardashian to speak out.

She said her husband had bipolar disorder, was a “brilliant but complicated person” and called for greater empathy surrounding his mental health from the public and the media.

“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions,” she wrote, calling her husband a “brilliant but complicated person.” She continued that he has the “pressures of being an artist and a Black man,” on top of the pain of losing of his mother in 2007.

“Living with bi-polar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some,” she added. “That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

West has a massive presence on social media with over 30 Million followers. His run for POTUS was inspiring for many Americans, encouraging them to get involved in the political process.

Prayers for the children and Kanye.

Kim Jong-un’s Message for Joe Biden: We Will Bring U.S. ‘to Its Knees’

Kim Jong-un’s Message for Joe Biden: We Will Bring U.S. ‘to Its Knees’

Joe Biden is not even president yet but already two-bit dictators are drooling at the thought of taking on the Chinese puppet known as Joe Biden.

The first one to speak up is North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. Speaking at the 8th Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea, Kim played up the economy and the advancements in missile technology.

He also told them that North Korea will bring the United States to its knees. Biden is already on his knees, paying homage to his Chinese masters. It looks like no one is very scared of Joe Biden. They think he could be mugged by US mail.

They are probably right.

The Hill:

“Our external political activities must focus on our arch-enemy and the fundamental obstacle to our revolutionary development, the United States,” Kim said, according to NBC. “The effort will focus on overpowering and bringing them to their knees,” he added. 

Kim also threatened to expand the country’s nuclear arsenal. 

Kim noted that regardless of who is in the White House, “the true nature of the U.S. and its fundamental policies towards North Korea never change.”

NBC News reports that Kim spoke for 9 hours on Saturday. And this guy has a nuclear arsenal? Yikes.

The Hill:

Kim reportedly listed multiple weapons systems under development, The Associated Press reported, citing KNCA, such as multi-warhead missiles, underwater-launched nuclear missiles and solid-fueled long-range missiles. However, it is unclear how extensive North Korea’s weapons systems are.

We have no idea if North Korea actually does have the advanced missiles they claim to have and just how effective they could be. Kim has a tendency to overstate things from time to time. But, we do know that before Trump, they were test-firing missiles regularly. Kim claims that they will begin test firing the missiles again.

CNN:

[North Korea expert Ankit] Panda said Kim’s interest in tactical or low-yield nuclear weapons made sense, even though they can be “very inefficient in their use of fissile material,” which isn’t easy for North Korea to get.

“North Korea’s interest in these weapons isn’t surprising from a strategic point of view — in fact, it augments Kim’s preferred nuclear strategy quite well,” said Panda, author of “Kim Jong Un and the Bomb: Survival and Deterrence in North Korea.”

Panda said North Korea likely wants these tactical nuclear weapons to combat a potential conventional domestic invasion. That way, Kim could keep his strategic, longer-range nuclear weapons “for retaliation against the US and civilian centers in Japan and South Korea if the US and allies press on after that initial nuclear use.”

Pelosi fills out Dem roster on the coronavirus oversight panel. All Strong Haters of Trump

Pelosi fills out Dem roster on the coronavirus oversight panel. All Strong Haters of Trump

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday filled out the Democratic roster on a special committee overseeing coronavirus relief spending, naming six new members to the newly created panel,

Schumer and Pelosi are at it again. They have followed through with their promise to create another oversight committee. This time it’s to have aggressive oversight of President Trumps CCP Virus relief packages. It’s funny to me how they call it “Trumps” spending when they have been approved by both Democrats and Republicans. But that’s not what this committee is really about. It is another committee looking for something to impeach or use against their rival President Trump. Today Pelosi named the group of Democrats that will be leading the oversight. It includes Maxine Waters (D-CA) who is a huge proponent to impeach Trump. It also includes  Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Nydia Velázquez (N.Y.), Bill Foster (Ill.), Jamie Raskin (Md.) and Andy Kim (N.J.). Notice three are Democrats from hard-hit states New Jersey and New York. No doubt Pelosi’s picks were intentional and they have a goal to make Trump look like he has done a terrible job. One of goals Pelosi said they have is to ensure there isn’t any fraudulent activity. I actually laughed out loud. They want to make sure they no one else commits fraudulent activity but them. Let’s see if this leads to hearings.

The Hill | BY MIKE LILLIS – 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday filled out the Democratic roster on a special committee overseeing coronavirus relief spending, naming six new members to the newly created panel, including some of President Trump‘s harshest congressional critics.

The announcement is a clear signal that Democratic leaders intend to conduct aggressive oversight of the Trump administration’s coronavirus spending — a process occurring in the midst of an election year — as trillions of dollars go out the door.

The panel, created by a party-line vote last week, will be led by Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), the Democratic whip. In a letter to Democrats Wednesday, Pelosi named six additional members: Reps. Maxine Waters (Calif.), Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.), Nydia Velázquez (N.Y.), Bill Foster (Ill.), Jamie Raskin (Md.) and Andy Kim (N.J.).

Democrats are billing the panel as a commonsense safeguard to ensure that the historic levels of emergency funding — money designed to prop up businesses, workers, families and medical providers most affected by the coronavirus fallout — aren’t frittered away by fraud and abuse.

“We must be sure that the money we put forth goes to those who need it most, in a way that addresses disparities in access to health care and credit,” Pelosi wrote in her letter. “We also owe it to the American people to prevent waste, fraud and abuse and to protect against price-gouging and profiteering.”

The oversight panel, Pelosi says, is modeled on the Truman Committee, the bipartisan, 1940s panel headed by then-Sen. Harry Truman (D-Mo.), which was formed to rein in fraud and profiteering among federal contractors during World War II.

Yet Clyburn’s oversight committee is already shaping up to be a distinctly more partisan enterprise than its historic predecessor.

Although the parties have united to approve almost $3 trillion in emergency relief since the start of March, they’re already clashing over the design, intention and necessity of the Clyburn panel.

Congress last month had created a five-member panel of bipartisan lawmakers charged with overseeing hundreds of billions of dollars in bailout loans for corporations. And that enormous relief package also created a separate panel of inspectors general, as well as a third oversight post: the special inspector general for pandemic recovery.

With that in mind, Republican leaders in Congress and the White House have said the Clyburn committee is both redundant and politically motivated. They’re accusing Democrats of establishing the panel merely to embarrass Trump in the months leading up to November’s elections — a debate that’s the mirror image of that over the GOP’s special Benghazi committee, which investigated Hillary Clinton in the lead-up to the 2016 elections.

“Instead of looking for innovative ways to help the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen to pursue ‘impeachment 2.0’ with a partisan and unnecessary oversight committee,” a spokesperson for House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told The Hill.

“The roster the Speaker has chosen makes clear that this is not an honest effort at transparency and accountability, but rather another attempt to politically damage the Trump administration.”

Fueling those accusations has been Pelosi’s picks for the oversight panel. Waters, for instance, has called for Trump’s impeachment since before he was sworn into office. Raskin, a constitutional law expert, had also been on the front-lines of the impeachment push.

The View: Meghan McCain Confronts Don Jr. Over Trump Attacks

The View: Meghan McCain Confronts Don Jr. Over Trump Attacks

Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle’s stunning appearance on The View took a jaw-dropping turn when Meghan McCain confronted the president’s son over Donald Trump’s attacks on Gold

I love how Kimberly Guilfoyle put it back in Meghan McCains lap that civility goes BOTH ways. Liberals and RINOS like Meghan believe it’s only Trump being negative. But truly, he ONLY reacts to them. And when 93% of the reporting is negative, that is 100% the Democrats fault. So maybe they need to look in the mirror first. 

Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle’s stunning appearance on The View took a jaw-dropping turn when Meghan McCain confronted the president’s son over Donald Trump’s attacks on Gold Star families.

McCain starting the segment off in a somber tone: “Mr. Trump, a lot of Americans in politics miss character. And a lot of people miss the soul of this country. You and your family have hurt a lot of people, and put a lot of people through a lot of pain, including the Khan family, who was a gold star family that I think should be respected for the loss of their son.”

“Does all this make you feel good?” she asked.

“I don’t think any of that makes me feel good, but I do think that we got into this because we wanted to do what’s right for America,” Don Jr. replied. My father has been working tirelessly to bring back the American dream who have watched politicians with no business experience send that American dream abroad to countries that hate our guts. He has brought jobs back. He has created unprecedented levels of unemployment numbers for African-Americans.

The Bully From Queens Finally Exposed As An Incompetent Boob

The Bully From Queens Finally Exposed As An Incompetent Boob

Andrew Cuomo is a guy that only Woke Supremacists could love.  He’s an arrogant incompetent with power, power he obtained through the name recognition of his father.  This was the same man who as the HUD secretary for the Bill Clinton administration responded to bank presidents who complained and warned of economic disaster over the administration forcing banks to make knowingly risky mortgages to people the industry’s application process deemed not able to pay the loans back by telling them to put the bad mortgage applicants through the subprime process, which he later accused the banks of doing after the 2008 Housing market crash that was arguably caused by the exacerbations of quotas for making really bad loans.  In short, once a scumbag always a scumbag.

We reported when former Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor to Governor Cuomo spanning from March 2015 until October 2018, Lindsey Boylan dropped a bombshell allegation that the New York governor sexually harassed her for years and that it got so bad she would feel sick when she got to work each day and it caused her to finally quit her job.

“Yes, @NYGovCuomo sexually harassed me for years. Many saw it, and watched.

I could never anticipate what to expect: would I be grilled on my work (which was very good) or harassed about my looks. Or would it be both in the same conversation? This was the way for years.”

After talking to her family about her ordeal, her mother said that Andrew Cuomo was a “sexist pig,” and warned her daughter to stay clear of him.

So now he can add “serial predator” to his abysmal record as both Republicans and Democrats have started calling for his resignation or that he be impeached.  Democrat state senators have already called for having his emergency powers stripped.

After Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to the governor, spilled the beans on a conference call with other Democrat leaders around the state that the administration hid the true numbers of COVID-19 deaths from nursing homes, the calls for Cuomo to go only grew.

For his fall from grace, you could almost feel sorry for him except that he is one of the most arrogant and obnoxious jerks you’ve ever had to sit and listen to.  The fact that he won an Emmy award for his coronavirus press briefings when the whole time he was an incompetent fraud sullied the reputation of the award reminiscent of when the Nobel committee destroyed its public worth after giving Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize before he ever did anything, and then he went on to get us involved in more military skirmishes than his predecessor George W Bush.

I don’t know what is more catastrophic, Cuomo’s acting like a bully, his incompetence, or the fact that high-ranking Democrats across the state knew this all along and said nothing until now.

It doesn’t help their cause when they openly admit it as city Public Advocate Jumaane Williams did on Wednesday when she trashed Cuomo at an anti-Cuomo rally.

“This is who he has always been long before the pandemic . . . It is finally exposing who we knew this governor was all along, from pay-to-play with real estate to pay-to-play with nursing-home owners, to ducking accountability, to passing blame to everyone but himself, to bullying tactics.”

We reported when Assemblyman Ron Kim told the story of receiving a phone call from the governor at night when he was bathing his children to threaten to “destroy” him if he didn’t help obstruct the political firestorm hitting the Cuomo administration’s cover-up of nursing home residents COVID-19 deaths.  He tried to force the lawmaker to write a statement to dilute the fallout of DeRosa’s admission that the administration covered up the nursing home deaths data.

“Everyone in New York politics knows he has been abusive for a long time,” Kim told Bloomberg TV, “to his staff, elected officials, even journalists.”

Then where were you this whole time, Kim?  Why did you not say anything until now?  How come no one in the media has ever asked him that question?

It’s because they all had something in common with Cuomo: their hatred for Donald Trump.  Cuomo did a huge reversal on recognition of the help that Trump provided for New York, first praising the former president for all that he did to make sure the state received everything they needed to combat the coronavirus, and then, inexplicably, he did a complete 180 turn around and started bashing Trump, claiming the exact opposite for many of the bullet items he once praised the Trump administration for accomplishing previously.

Cuomo had praises heaped upon him for how wonderful he was during the pandemic.  Joe Biden referred to the New York governor as the “gold standard” for leadership, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was a big fan of the three-term governor, and much more praise came from Democrats and some Republicans as well as he was silently killing at least 10,000 helpless seniors with his forcing nursing homes to take in COVID-19 positive patients.

In reality, they all knew all along that he was fully unprepared to handle the coronavirus pandemic.  Reports came out that the Cuomo administration hadn’t replenished ventilators when they were depleted and this arrogant man insulted President Trump claiming the federal government didn’t “give” him enough of them, even though it was known that several years prior to the pandemic the state had 16,000 fewer ventilators than the 18,000 they needed in case a severe pandemic came along.  At that point, the state could have decided to purchase more ventilators to bring them back to the standard that hospitals would need, but instead, the health commissioner, Howard Zucker, created a task force for rationing the ventilators they already had.  That means they wanted to use the money to purchase ventilators somewhere else.  But it was perfectly fine to blame Donald Trump for New York’s lack of ventilators.

Cumo made some extremely stupid decisions at the start of the pandemic, like when he kept the subway system running but cut down the number of trains, hoping that would nudge workers to either find other modes of transportation or stay home from work during the crisis.  Instead, most New Yorkers continued going to work via the trains, and thanks to the Cuomo-imposed shortage of trains the riders were packed in like sardines and that made it much easier to spread the virus.

It’s almost as if Cuomo spent the whole pandemic blaming other people for his own screw ups, like when he recently shifted blame for the thousands of deaths due to his decision to force COVID patients into nursing homes on the nursing home staff themselves, arrogantly claiming that coronavirus didn’t get into the nursing homes by the COVID-positive patients he sent to them, but by the staffers who worked there.  It was an unbelievable attempt to skirt responsibility.

Talking about skirting responsibility, Cuomo even wrote a book about how great he handled the coronavirus pandemic before the coronavirus pandemic ended.  It was as if he wanted to get a jump on what he knew would be a barrage of complaints and criticisms over his ineptitude throughout the whole ordeal.  Everything he did was political, including turning New Yorkers against taking the COVID vaccine simply because it was created through the efforts of the Trump administration removing government red tape to allow the private sector to get it done in record time.

This man was a disaster for New Yorkers yet the mainstream news media loved him because they were able to use him to discredit Trump and blame the former president for every COVID death, which was the whole point from the perspective of the Democratic Party from the very beginning.  They hammered every death into the minds of Americans to harm his reelection chances.

I don’t normally relish watching someone’s life fall apart, which is much worse than an ordinary fall from grace, but in this case, I hope Cuomo gets everything he deserves because he’s not a nice person in any sense and he hurt an awful lot of families by putting politics over the concerns of his fellow New Yorkers.

New York Democrats Hold Outdoor Presser Calling for Charges Against Governor Cuomo (VIDEO)

New York Democrats Hold Outdoor Presser Calling for Charges Against Governor Cuomo (VIDEO)

The Democrats are eating their own. AOC is ragging on Biden for reopening the cages for unaccompanied children. The hilarious thing is that Obama had them opened for a long time and nothing was said.

Trump closed it after just one month and the Democrats screamed bloody murder for four years. Now, Biden reopens it and once again the elites and the lapdog media are silent. Can you imagine that?

Now, the Democrats in New York state held an outdoor press conference calling for criminal charges to be lodged against Andrew Cuomo for sending COVID positive patients into nursing homes, facilitating mass murder of the elderly. And then on top of that, perpetuating a cover-up in order to keep the federal government from investigating him.

Cuomo is getting hit from all sides between threatening an assemblyman and the sexual harassment of one of his aides.

New York Assemblymember Ron Kim, a Democrat, and Jessica Ramos, a Democrat, held a rally at City Hall on Wednesday. Kim was also accompanied by a number of other elected Democrats. Cuomo had threatened to destroy Kim because he did not like him criticizing Cuomo for his nursing home policy. many new Yorkers lost their parents and their grandparents due to Cuomo’s policies and they are not happy.

Via Citizen Free Press.

Way back in May we reported that New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, Health Commissioner Howard Zucker, MD and Executive Deputy Commissioner Sally Dreslin’s actions led to thousands of deaths in New York state.

From The Gateway Pundit

Yaacov Apelbaum at the Illustrated Primer shared that these New York politicians are accountable for thousands of nursing home deaths because of their insane directives related to the China coronavirus.

Apelbaum first pointed out the ludicrous directive from New York’s Department of Health, including:

During this global health emergency, all NHs [nursing homes] must comply with the expedited receipt of residents returning from hospitals to NHs.

and:

No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19. NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.

New York Journalist Says Gov. Cuomo ‘Terrorized’ Him for Daring to Do His Job, Challenges Reporters to ‘Tell Their Own Cuomo Stories’

If you have been keeping track of the nursing home scandal in New York State, you are aware of Gov Andrew Cuomo calling up assemblyman Ron Kim and the threatening phone call he got from Cuomo.

NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio says that story did not surprise him because that is par for the course for Cuomo. He has a tendency to go through the roof if someone says or writes something he doesn’t like.

de Blasio said:

“It’s a sad thing to say, Mika, but that’s classic Andrew Cuomo. A lot of people in New York state have received those phone calls.”

“The bullying is nothing new. The threats, the belittling, the demand that someone change their statement right that moment — many, many times I’ve heard that and I know a lot of other people in the state that have heard that.”

Former City & State editor-in-chief Morgan Pehme recounted an experience he had with Cuomo:

It was 4:30 a.m., so I pulled the bathroom door shut in my one-bedroom Brooklyn apartment to answer the phone without waking my then-5-year-old. On the line was Melissa DeRosa, Gov. Cuomo’s then-communications director, now his second-in-command. She was threatening to destroy me.

By now, thanks to Queens Assemblyman Ron Kim blowing the whistle on the threats he received in a call from Cuomo, the public has a glimpse of the bullying practiced by the governor and his top brass.

Many Americans are shocked, having bought into the compassionate persona Cuomo conveyed in his pandemic briefings. But Kim’s revelations came as no surprise to anyone who has dealt with the governor. As one Albany insider texted me last week, “everyone has an Andrew Cuomo story.”

Pehme said that he knows what it is like to have Cuomo threaten to destroy you. You may remember the name Melissa DeRosa. She is the one who, in a phone call to top Democrats, told them that the Cuomo administration intentionally fudged the number of nursing home deaths in order to keep the feds from finding out.

I’ll bet she got an earful from Cuomo for that.

AOC Calls For ‘Full Investigation’ Into Cuomo Nursing Home Scandal

AOC Calls For ‘Full Investigation’ Into Cuomo Nursing Home Scandal

It has gotten so bad for New York governor Andrew Cuomo that now even AOC wants him investigated.

But the question I have is what is her motive? Does she want to see the guilty punished? Or is it because the Democrats are going to eliminate her seat for the 2022 midterm elections?

There has been speculation that she could try for Schumer’s seat but she would be unlikely to win. However, it is possible she could defeat Cuomo.

At any rate, AOC is calling for a full and thorough investigation into Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic, specifically his policy of sending Covid positive patients into nursing homes turning them into the killing fields.

New York saw over 15,000 people dying in nursing homes unless they are still covering up the numbers in which case the sky is the limit.

Cuomo’s handling of the pandemic is being questioned by everyone except the lamestream press.

The floodgates opened after one of his top aides was discovered to have apologized to top Democrats in the state that his administration purposely lied about the number of deaths caused by Cuomo’s policies. People are absolutely appalled by his cover up and AOC might see some major vulnerability there that she can capitalize on. She might also see the advantage in the 2024 presidential election of a governor rather than a member of the House.

AOC said:

“I support our state’s return to co-equal governance and stand with our local officials calling for a full investigation of the Cuomo administration’s handling of nursing homes during COVID-19. Thousands of vulnerable New Yorkers lost their lives in nursing homes throughout the pandemic. Their loved ones and the public deserve answers and transparency from their elected leadership, and the Secretary to the Governor’s remarks warrant a full investigation.”

From Fox News

The FBI and the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York reportedly both have opened an investigation into the Cuomo administration’s handling of nursing homes during the pandemic. CNN and the governor’s brother, Chris Cuomo, have made a massive push to downplay and deflect from the Democrat’s controversies, as the liberal host has led friendly chats with the scandal-plagued governor over the past year.

Democratic New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim sounded the alarm this week on Cuomo’s behavior, alleging that the governor threatened to “destroy” him in a spat over the state’s nursing home crisis.

Andrew Cuomo Threatens Democrat Lawmaker Over Nursing Home COVID Deaths Scandal, ‘You Will Be Destroyed’

Andrew Cuomo Threatens Democrat Lawmaker Over Nursing Home COVID Deaths Scandal, ‘You Will Be Destroyed’

A New York state lawmaker says a very angry Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) threatened to “destroy” him if he didn’t help obstruct the political firestorm hitting the Cuomo administration’s cover-up of nursing home residents COVID-19 deaths.  Isn’t obstruction a felony under federal law?

On Wednesday, Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Queens) whose uncle died of COVID-19 in a nursing home said he got a phone call from the governor last Thursday night that quickly went south, with the governor warning him, “You have not seen my wrath.”

The call came shortly after it was reported that a top aide of the governor, Melissa DeRosa, admitted during a conference call with New York state lawmakers that the Cuomo administration hid the true COVID-19 death numbers from nursing homes and said it was because they feared that information would be “used against us” by federal prosecutors.  This was after then-President Donald Trump started questioning the competency of the Cuomo administration on its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“At first, there was a silence on the phone,” Kim said.

“Then the governor says, ‘Mr. Kim, are you an honorable man?’”

Kim, who was on that February 10 conference call with DeRosa, Cuomo’s secretary, who called Cuomo out over the cover-up in an article by the New York Post, said he was “in the middle of bathing my kids” when he received the call from the governor.

The assemblyman said that Cuomo asked him to draft a new statement “to say that Melissa DeRosa said there was a federal investigation and they had to deal with that first.”  The governor of New York not only allegedly obstructed a federal investigation but he allegedly asked a state lawmaker to write a letter full of lies to help cover that up as well.

The conversation rapidly turned dark, Kim said, as Cuomo threatened him saying, “You have not seen my wrath. I have been biting my tongue for months.”

“I can tell the whole world what a bad person you are and you will be finished,” Kim recalled Cuomo saying, ending the vicious rant with, “You will be destroyed.”

Kim said Cuomo was so livid that “my wife could hear the governor yelling into the phone.”

Cuomo asked Kim if he was a lawyer at one point, which the assemblyman is not.

“After that call, we were devastated. My wife didn’t sleep at all,” Kim said.

Kim said that Cuomo later “called me four or five times on Saturday” but he didn’t answer the phone.

Kim has been among Cuomo’s strongest critics since his uncle, Son Kim, died in a nursing home back in April after she showed symptoms of COVID-19.  Who can blame him?

It now looks like Democrats, who put up with the governor’s arrogance for way too long during the COVID-19 crisis, are starting to turn on him.  On Tuesday, nine state Assembly Democrats accused the governor of federal obstruction of justice in a letter that asks for Governor Cuomo’s COVID-19 emergency powers to be stripped.  A number of state Senators also asked for the same.

Cuomo’s spokesman, Rich Azzopardi, issued a nearly 800-word, prepared statement in which he accused Kim of “lying about his conversation with Governor Cuomo Thursday night.”  I don’t think anyone believes Azzopardi, especially if you watch any one of Cuomo’s press conferences where he goes all belligerent and arrogant at anyone who questions his actions or authority on the handling of the COVID pandemic in New York.

“ I know because I was one of three other people in the room when the phone call occurred,” Azzopardi said, which probably means the guy who gets Cuomo’s coffee is lying as well.  Why would Kim make something up like that?

“At no time did anyone threaten to ‘destroy’ anyone with their ‘wrath’ nor engage in a ‘coverup.’”

He added: “That’s beyond the pale and is, unfortunately, part of a years-long pattern of lies by Mr. Kim against this administration.”

The country witnessed Governor Cuomo go from thanking President Trump for everything he did for New York during the pandemic, and it was a lot of things the president came through on for Cuomo.  We then saw the governor, on a dime change his tune and start to trash the president saying he did very little for the state.  Andrew Cuomo is a political whore with a very bad temper, and no one thinks Kim made up anything outside of coffee boy and some other sycophants who don’t want to piss off Dear Governor.
