We recently reported when New York City political appointee Lindsey Boylan took to social media on Sunday to claim that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years,” and I warned that the mainstream news media would Tara Reade her, and completely ignore the story. And they did. Tara Reade came out and accused Joe Biden of sexual assault and the media didn’t cover that story either.
So, if you get your “news,” for lack of a better word, from ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC or NBC you’re probably ignorant of her tweet, because they failed to cover it. Cuomo is their boy, because even though he completely botched the handling of coronavirus in his state, he brazenly accused President Donald Trump for his own mistakes and failures, and since these network hate Donald Trump, Cuomo is their hero.
Had Cuomo been a Republican you would still be hearing about it. It’s just the messed up world we live in now.
Boylan, who describes herself as a progressive (which is really the American version of a Marxist), according to her LinkedIn profile, worked for the Cuomo administration from 2015 to 2018.
“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.”
“Not knowing what to expect what’s the most upsetting part aside from knowing that no one would do a damn thing even when they saw it.
And I *know* I am not the only woman.”
The Media Research Center reported that ABC, NBC and CBS ignored Boylan’s claims in the first 24 hours after her allegations became public. That’s nothing. It’s been over a month and they’re still ignoring all the evidence that confirms massive voter fraud took place in the 2020 election. You can’t trust that alphabet soup.
“The network newscasts on Sunday night and Monday morning were predictably silent on the shocking sexual harassment claims against Governor Andrew Cuomo, a hero among liberals,” NewsBusters associate editor Scott Whitlock wrote.
“On Sunday night there was silence from the networks. On Monday morning, NBC’s ‘Today,’ ‘CBS This Morning’ and ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ all avoided the accusations against the governor, despite a combined six hours of available air time,” Whitlock added.
Networks weren’t the only ones who decided to completely ignore the story, because liberal cable news outlets also completely ignored accusations made by Boylan.
I wonder how that makes progressive women feel to know that left wing news outlets will completely ignore their allegations of sexual harassment to favor a man who is a liberal Democrat politician? Doesn’t that mean that all of media’s hype and rhetoric about women needing to be believed was just a bunch of bullschtein political rhetoric?
Neither CNN nor MSNBC mentioned Boylan’s allegations during the 24 hour timeline follower her tweets, according to the transcripts.
Though Boylan described the governor’s office as being a “toxic work environment” earlier in December, she has yet to give up and details of alleged incidents, and she has named no witnesses.
On a side note, whenever people here about charges of sexual harassment they immediately begin to think of a boss, usually a man, telling a female subordinate that if she doesn’t have sex with him she’s fired or she won’t get promotions or she will be demoted, etc. That’s horrible and there should be something done about bosses who do that. But that’s not how the liberals have morphed this area of the law. Sexual harassment could have absolutely nothing to do with an action being sexual in nature. It could have to do with harassment in the workplace like having your work ridiculed constantly or being cursed at by the boss. In the old days we used to call that life on the job. Us older folks understand that many people had bad bosses at one time or another who took things out on you that you didn’t deserve.
Of course, the governor’s office said there was no truth to the claims as if anyone expected him to admit to it.
There’s a lot of speculation going around that Boylan came out with these accusations because she’s running for Manhattan Borough President in 2021 and she thinks she’ll get media attention and the attentions of some feminist groups who will come out and support her. But it looks like she’s learning that feminists are only against politicians who won’t do their bidding. For goodness’ sake they championed Bill Clinton a serial sexual predator. Boylan also ran against Jerry Nadler for his seat in Congress this year, and she lost by 40 points, according to Ballotpedia!
On Wednesday, the US Supreme Court blocked New York Governor Andrew Cuomo from reestablishing his draconian strict attendance caps at worship services in areas hit hard by the coronavirus.
The court ruled 5-4 to block Cuomo from enforcing his October 6 “Cluster Initiative” against churches and other houses of worship that sued to challenge his unamerican restrictions.
The ruling is the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett, who was President Donald Trump’s third Supreme Court nominee, joined the court on October. 27, after being confirmed by the US Senate after the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on September 18.
Meanwhile, it’s being reported that Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court’s liberal wing in the dissenting opinion, but I wish they would stop reporting on him that way, because John Roberts IS of the court’s liberal wing. The leftists on the court’s dissent was that the court had acted rashly. According to the Constitution, the New York Governor is the one who acted rashly.
In an Orwellian fashion, Cuomo’s plan created a color-coded system on the limits of large gatherings and on businesses, supposedly to help stop an outbreak in NYC where cases were allegedly surging.
His orders were aimed at worship services at some synagogues and Roman Catholic churches in parts of Brooklyn and Queens, according to Bloomberg.
In the red zones, deemed the hardest-hit areas, the state limited attendance in houses of worship down to only 25 percent of their lawful occupancy or 10 people, whichever is fewer. The majority of complaints said the governor’s limits violated the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion. And they are right.
Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote in the concurring opinion that Cuomo treated religious activities less favorably than nonreligious ones, according to the New York Times. That goes against the Equal Protection Clause of the US Constitution. And religion has Constitutional rights.
“It is time — past time — to make plain that, while the pandemic poses many grave challenges, there is no world in which the Constitution tolerates color-coded executive edicts that reopen liquor stores and bike shops but shutter churches, synagogues, and mosques,” wrote Gorsuch, who was also named to the court by Trump.
“So, at least according to the Governor, it may be unsafe to go to church, but it is always fine to pick up another bottle of wine, shop for a new bike, or spend the afternoon exploring your distal points and meridians,” he continued, according to a tweet from The Economist correspondent Steven Mazie. “Who knew public health would so perfectly align with secular convenience?”
The ruling was considered a reversal of earlier actions taken in the course of the pandemic this year by the Court in response to state restrictions on organized religion. The justices beforehand refused to lift restrictions on churches in California and Nevada.
In the dissenting opinion, Roberts explained why the court’s leftists opposed the decision.
“Numerical capacity limits of 10 and 25 people, depending on the applicable zone, do seem unduly restrictive,” Roberts wrote, according to the New York Times. “It is not necessary, however, for us to rule on that serious and difficult question at this time.”
“The governor might reinstate the restrictions,” he continued. “But he also might not. And it is a significant matter to override determinations made by public health officials concerning what is necessary for public safety in the midst of a deadly pandemic. If the governor does reinstate the numerical restrictions the applicants can return to this court, and we could act quickly on their renewed applications.”
President Trump took to social media to retweet the SCOTUSblog account that announced the high court’s ruling.
The American Criminal Liberties Union (ACLU) condemned the decision and warned it could “undermine New York’s efforts to curb the pandemic.”
“The freedom to worship is one of our most cherished fundamental rights, but it does not include a license to harm others or endanger public health,” said Daniel Mach, director of the ACLU Program of Freedom of Religion and Belief. Actually, the Constitution says about religion that the government may not “prohibit the free exercise thereof;” It’s literally in the First Amendment!
NY Gov Andrew Cuomo rips Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over her ridiculous claim that the dramatic rise in shootings and murders are due to poverty and the need for people to shoplift a loaf of bread.
He called her claims, “factually impossible.”
Cuomo has been trying to rehabilitate his record after sending so many DTMNBN (Disease That Must Not Be Named) to nursing homes where a large portion of deaths were recorded.
The idea that it is a good idea to send infected patients to a place where the most vulnerable citizens live was an utter disaster.
AOC said that people were unable to pay their rent but as Gov Cuomo points out that evictions in the state had been placed on hold.
Therefore, being evicted is not something the people had to worry about yet.
However, it is true that thanks to Cuomo’s blundering response to DTMNBN, New Yorkers are in very dire financial straights,
AOC made her comments after a particularly bloody weekend in New York, one in which a one-year-old boy was shot and killed. The lack of law enforcement is the problem, not the lack of a loaf of bread. There has been an unusually large number of shootings especially in a city and state that makes it almost impossible for a law-abiding citizen to own a gun.

New York City passed a budget earlier in July, which stripped $1 billion in funding from the New York Police Department (NYPD). Cuomo signed sweeping police reforms last month, which included a ban on police chokeholds, and a repeal of a law which kept disciplinary records of police officers secret.
Former ICE Agent David Ward blasted New York Democratic gubernatorial contenders Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon for their fiery anti-ICE rhetoric during their Wednesday debate.
Both of these candidates are running for Governor of New York, and they are both dangerous for our country. Both spared of their equal hate for President Trump and ICE.
“Cuomo, the incumbent, boasted that “nobody has stood up to Donald Trump the way I have,” adding that ICE agents are “thugs” and that he is unafraid to sue the federal government.”
He said he is suing the Trump administration for “ripping children” from their mothers. Nixon has also called ICE a “terrorist organization” and supported the organization’s demise.
“I challenge Governor Cuomo to come up with one incident where an ICE agent ripped a feeding child from his mother’s breast,” Ward said, adding that Cuomo’s rhetoric is not factual and that both Democrats embody an “insane strategy.”
Cuomo and Nixon face a September primary to see who will be opposing Republican Marc Molinaro, a county executive in the Poughkeepsie area.”

Far-left Democrat Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo has been the intense focus of huge sex scandal that even the far-left media gatekeepers have promoted, keeping the populous focused on scandalous details of women who say Cuomo acted out sexually to them. It leads discerning people to wonder exactly what they are all trying to hide, and we may have our answer to that. He is redistributing the country’s wealth to foreigners and criminals.
Advocates — who are pushing for the fund to be closer to $3.5 billion — have stressed that these so-called “excluded workers” were hit hard by the pandemic but didn’t receive COVID-19 stimulus checks or jobless aid.
In their article, NYS lawmakers, Cuomo negotiating $2.1B funds for illegal immigrants, ex-cons, The New York Post reported:
“New York state lawmakers on Thursday were negotiating a $2.1 billion fund that would give unemployment benefits to illegal immigrants and former inmates — possibly providing some recipients with around $28,000.
Legislators and Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office were hashing out details of the “Excluded Worker Fund,” which would be part of the now-overdue 2021-22 state budget, sources told The Post.
The proposal, introduced in the Senate and Assembly two weeks ago, aims to help residents who are otherwise ineligible for federal aid, such as people living in the country illegally or those recently sprung from jail.”
Note the new term in the Revolution: Excluded Workers.
According to 13Wham.com Excluded Workers are in grave danger.
“Lawmakers and advocates are calling on New York to provide more aid for workers who are excluded from unemployment benefits.
Such groups of people can include immigrant workers, or those who may have recently left incarceration.
Advocates are calling for help on two fronts. First, they are calling on the state to establish a fund of more than $3.5 billion to help excluded workers – a fund they say could be developed through taxing wealthy residents in New York.
They say aid should be available retroactive to the start of the pandemic, as well as forward-looking,” they reported.
Oh- the “Shadow Economy,” right…
“Excluded workers, often called our shadow economy, touch us in every way, every day,” said Assemblymember Sarah Clark. “They put food on our tables, they care for our loved ones, and they have received not a single penny of help since this started.”
Advocates’ second goal relates to accessibility. Excluded workers may not necessarily have access to bank records, pay stubs or other forms of identification. This could create obstacles for workers, and advocates are calling on lawmakers to prevent such burdens from coming between workers and a specialized fund.
“We must make sure that there are no barriers to qualify and receive this assistance because, as essential workers, we deserve it,” said Victor Cortez, a dairy farm worker. “In the immigrant community, many of us do not count on the requirements because working as a day laborer, delivery or any type of work with many bosses and higher-ups, there is no pay stub, there is no check, and it is very difficult to open up a bank account.”
The left has never met a third revolutionary tactic they didn’t try to bring to America.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was the golden child just a few short months ago and it was all because he almost daily trashed then President Donald Trump. Trump Derangement Syndrome was so strong among the Democrats and more importantly our press that they all ignored the incompetence and bullying personality of the governor until he was no longer useful. I think until now there are seven women who have come out against Cuomo for sexual harassment, I’ve actually lost count.
But according to new sexual harassment allegations by the first victim to come forward, the New York governor allegedly told a woman he would try to “mount” her if he were a dog. What does he mean, if? This man is a dog.
This new allegation is being added by Cuomo’s original accuser Lindsey Boylan. Remember when Boylan first came out against the governor?
During an interview with Ronan Farrow of The New Yorker, Boylan says, “I remember being grossed out but also, like, what a dumb third-grade thing to say. … I just shrugged it off.” When Ronan Farrow gets involved, look out.
Farrow said, “A spokesperson for Cuomo declined to comment specifically on the claim, but reiterated Cuomo’s denial that he behaved inappropriately with Boylan.” Yeah, a professional woman just out of the blue made it all up. That’s what Cuomo wants us all to believe.
Farrow wrote: “At a press conference that February, Cuomo had proudly showed off his new puppy, a Siberian-Shepherd-Malamute mix named Captain. After the meeting, Boylan said that she made her way toward the entrance with the Governor, and Captain approached her. When the dog jumped up and down near her, Boylan said, she reached out to calm him, and then backed away. Cuomo, she said, joked that if he were a dog, he would try to ‘mount’ her as well. Boylan said that she did not reply. “I remember being grossed out but also, like, what a dumb third-grade thing to say.” She added, ‘I just shrugged it off.’ A spokesperson for Cuomo declined to comment specifically on the claim, but reiterated Cuomo’s denial that he behaved inappropriately with Boylan.”
Things are not looking good for the New York Democrat as the allegations against him keep piling up.
At the beginning of this month the worst allegation against Cuomo came out when an anonymous accuser implicated that Cuomo asked her to come to his mansion to help him with “technical issues” and when she got there the governor “reached under her blouse” and “aggressively groped” her.
What he did was so horrible that it was referred to the state police.
“As a matter of state policy, when allegations of physical contact are made, the agency informs the complainant that they should contact their local police department,” Beth Garvey, Cuomo’s acting counsel said in a statement. “If they decline, the agency has an obligation to reach out themselves and inform the department of the allegation.”
“In this case, the person is represented by counsel and when counsel confirmed the client did not want to make a report, the state notified the police department and gave them the attorney’s information,” Garvey added.
An impeachment inquiry was launched against Cuomo last week, not by New York Republicans, but by Democrats because sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations keep piling up against Cuomo. The New York Times reported, “New York State lawmakers, many of them Democrats, opened an impeachment inquiry into Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo on Thursday, signaling that members of the governor’s party were abandoning him amid a series of sexual harassment allegations.”
I still can’t get over the fact that many Democrat lawmakers in New York came out after these allegations hit and said that Cuomo was this way all along, he acted like a bully and treated women very unfairly all along, but where were they all along? Why did they not say something until recently?
The New York State Assembly will conduct the investigation into the allegations made against the governor. And that’s not all that’s going on against this governor as it was recently revealed that Democrats will also be investigating Cuomo’s nursing home debacle where he got his administration to cover up the real number of nursing home deaths after he made the decision to force COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes to be among the vulnerable of our society, senior citizens, allegedly causing close to 15,000 deaths from the pandemic virus.
Gov Andrew Cuomo could have even deeper problems than impeachment. he now has to worry about prosecution. It could be used as leverage against him.
They could offer not to prosecute him for sexual assault in exchange for his resignation. Given that choice, he could give up the ghost and resign. At least it beats prison.
In the latest case, he is accused of putting his hand under the blouse of an aid and fondling her breasts.
It will be hard to deny since she immediately reported his actions to her supervisor.
It’s ironic too because he was very forceful over Brett Kavanaugh. He insisted that he take a lie detector test. Will Cuomo agree to a lie detector test?
I think we both know the answer to that.
Democrats are saying that Trump was much worse, but remember, both women who complained about Trump agree that the sex was consensual, they just saw a way to make a quick buck. Only one woman accused him of improper conduct and a video proved she lied.
On Thursday, a New York agency referred the latest sexual assault claim against Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) to the Albany police.
The New York State Executive Chamber, which is actually part of Cuomo’s own office referred the charges to the Albany police. He will now be investigated as a sexual predator. They were just following proper protocol.

Cuomo categorically denied the accusation. “I have never done anything like this,” the governor said on Wednesday. In a statement last month, Cuomo denied all sexual assault claims. While he admitted that “my interactions may have been insensitive or too personal” and that “some of the things I have said may have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation,” he insisted, “I never inappropriately touched anybody and I never propositioned anybody and I never intended to make anyone feel uncomfortable.”
Attorney General Letitia James (D-N.Y.) is assembling a team to investigate the sexual assault claims.
Some of the women who made the sexual assault claims had previously spoken up, but explosive developments in the COVID-19 nursing home scandal drew fresh attention to these claims. No fewer than six women have come forward accusing Cuomo of sexual assault.
Andrew Cuomo is under attack from women who claim to be the victim of sexual harassment. His latest accuser says that Cuomo had her sent to the Governor’s Mansion on some non existent pretense and once there, he placed his hand up her blouse and began fondling her, she alleges. She also says that she complained to her boss at the time of the assault. She is the fifth woman to come forward with an accusation against Cuomo.
The woman has not been named because the attack on her could see criminal charges and it is against New York law to reveal her identity. I don’t think she is the last woman we hear from. It appears that Cuomo may have used his position in order to have his way with women and we don’t know how many he may have succeeded with. Of course, Cuomo denies all of the charges from five women.
The reason that so many men will get away with sexual harassment or assault is that no one wants to be the first to come out to tell their story. But once one does come forward, more will follow. I would not be surprised if many more accusations are not made in the coming days. There are many including fellow Democrats that are calling for his resignation.Cuomo says that resigning would be undemocratic.
The Times Union reported:
A female aide to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo alleges he aggressively groped her in a sexually charged manner after she had been summoned to the Executive Mansion late last year, according to a person with direct knowledge of the woman’s claims.
The staff member, whose identity is being withheld by the Times Union, had been called to the mansion under the apparent pretext of having her assist the governor with a minor technical issue involving his mobile phone. They were alone in Cuomo’s private residence on the second floor when he closed the door and allegedly reached under her blouse and began to fondle her, according to the source.
The person, who is not authorized to comment publicly, said the woman — who is much younger than Cuomo — told the governor to stop. Her broader allegations include that he frequently engaged in flirtatious behavior with her, and that it was not the only time that he had touched her.
Cuomo denies the attacks:
“As I said yesterday, I have never done anything like this. The details of this report are gut-wrenching. I am not going to speak to the specifics of this or any other allegation given the ongoing review, but I am confident in the result of the attorney general’s report.”
New York’s Democrat Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins and State Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie on Sunday both called on Governor Cuomo to resign.
One of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s former aides who has since come out to accuse him of sexual harassment has said that the governor’s spokesman placed a phone call to her during her honeymoon to do damage control when the #MeToo scandal started.
Ana Liss who formerly worked for Cuomo for two years between 2013 and 2015 as a policy and operations aide, accused the governor of making unwanted advances toward her, touching her back, and then kissing her hand among other things. Liss recently told Rochester TV station WROC she was on her honeymoon back in December when Rich Azzopardi, a Cuomo spokesman, out of the blue called her. This was only two days after Lindsey Boylan, who served as Deputy Secretary for Economic Development and Special Advisor for the Cuomo administration from march 2015 through October 2018, went public to accuse the governor of sexual harassment.
“I thought at first that it was about work like maybe it’s an economic development project that we’re working on here,” said Liss, who now works as the director of planning and development for Monroe County. “And he said instead, ‘I have kind of an awkward question to ask you. Has Lindsey Boylan reached out to you, have you spoken to her?’”
Liss continued, “And I said, ‘No,’ and then we hung up, and I remember thinking, ‘How many other people is he calling? Why is he calling us?’” She worked as an aide for Cuomo for two years when she left back in 2015.
Boylan last month provided more details about what happened, saying Cuomo unexpectedly and without consent kissed her on the lips back in 2018 at his Manhattan office and according to the New York Post said to her “Let’s play strip poker” during a flight on his official state jet the year prior.
To date, now there are five other women, including Liss, who have spoken out and accused Cuomo of sexual harassment or inappropriate misconduct.
The New York governor has denied the allegations, and he gave a non-apology apology for behavior blaming the women by saying his actions were not perceived as he’d intended.
When asked about resigning after all the women came out against him Cuomo responded:
“I was elected by the people of the state. I’m not going to resign because of allegations,” the embattled governor said during a conference call. “There is no way I resign.”
Do you remember when Andrew Cuomo called for Brett Kavanaugh to take a polygraph test? Because I do. But when he’s the target of allegations there is no way he will resign. It must be great to be a Democrat.
According to WROC, Liss said after she read Boylan’s tweets about Cuomo’s misconduct she first thought, “Wow, that’s dangerous, good luck to you, I would never open my mouth, they’re going to crush you like a bug.”
She added that after “this really started to blow up I thought, ‘You know, maybe it isn’t as dangerous as I thought for Lindsey to speak out.’”
Liss revealed that when Boylan gave out more details last month of Cuomo’s behavior, “She called me and said she was calling me because she saw me in the workplace and she knew I may have similar stories to share.”
Liss said other women were allegedly “subject to much more explicit treatment than I was” by the governor who said publicly that he never inappropriately touched anyone which I supposed would not include kissing Boylan on the lips without her consent.
“I decided to share my story because it’s a small piece of a much larger and more elaborate puzzle that I think New Yorkers should be aware of,” Liss said. “I don’t think Albany or state government, working in the Executive Chamber, is a safe space for young women early in their careers.” Especially when there’s a 63-year-old horny old man who acts like a bully sitting in the governor’s office.
Azzopardi had the gall to tell Liss that he was calling just to give her a heads up that Boylan and others may be reaching out. If we were to read between the lines here wouldn’t this mean that Azzopardi and Cuomo knew that there would be others?
“After Ms. Boylan’s tweets in December, she, and her lawyers and members of the press began reaching out to former members of the Chamber, many of whom never worked with her,” he said. “Those former members of the Chamber called to let various staff people know and convey that they were upset by the outreach. As a result, we proactively reached out to some former colleagues to check in and make sure they had a heads up.”
Yeah, he was just being kind by reaching out to former women aides to the governor who may be contacted about their own sexual harassment claims against the governor by letting them know that they might receive a pesky phone call just as a courteous heads up. That story stinks on ice.
You don’t call potential victims unless you’re on a fishing expedition.
