Californians are fed up with their small businesses being shut down indefinitely over COVID-19 and they are fed up with churches being punished by vengeful and vindictive government officials. But parents most specifically are livid over their kids being kept out of school for what is coming to an entire year.
On Monday, one parent in Los Angeles told Fox News Channe’s “Fox & Friends” that she helped out organizing a Zoom blackout for a formal protest for schools to be reopened and in-person classes to resume because “there is a really big urgency to get our kids back in school.”
Cynthia Rojas admitted that she is speaking out because she feels that parents in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) are being misled intentionally.
According to a flier that has been passed out, the Zoom blackout that started on Monday and will go on every day for “as many days as it takes,” adding that “enough is enough” and that parents “can no longer sit by and wait for UTLA to come up with more excuses to keep our schools closed.”
American taxpayers are paying for public schools. It’s their schools and they do not belong to the school districts. It doesn’t belong to the teachers and it most certainly doesn’t belong to the teacher’s unions. If it’s called “public schools” then it means if the “public,” who pays for it to function, demands that the teachers do their damn jobs and stop lying to the parents about the dangers of COVID when it’s known that kids do not catch the virus and are in no way considered super spreaders. I think this kind of rebellion by parents is going to start to take place all across the country in states where Democrats are destroying children’s lives.
Rojas spoke about the frustration of learning over the last few months that parents have “have very little voice in this whole situation.”
“We don’t have a seat at the table when it comes to the negotiations between LAUSD and UTLA (United Teachers Los Angeles) and so we’ve been trying the standard calling and voicemails, and e-mails, but it’s not working,” Rojas said. “And so I’m part of a group of just parents who are just really frustrated.”
She stressed that she thinks the Zoom blackout is “going to give feedback to LAUSD and UTLA that they are not providing an education for our children.”
“I feel like every time we log in, it gives them the opportunity to say, ‘Hey, oh we’re providing education, there’s online learning, what’s the big rush to get back to school,’” she added.
“And what we’re seeing is there is a really big urgency to get our kids back in school,” she continued noting that the science says it’s safe to go back to in-person learning.
A little side note, my youngest is a senior in high school. He has gotten straight A’s and has been on the top Honors roll for three years, but right now he’s failing because of virtual learning. Not everyone is cut out for it and the schools don’t care. As an example, he told me that what happens all the time is just as he is starting to get what the teacher is talking about some technical glitch happens, the feed goes down, and it takes about five minutes to get back into the virtual classroom. That’s only one problem he faces daily. In my other life, I am a senior programmer, and I can tell you that whenever I am interrupted by someone when my head is buried deep in code it takes me at least ten minutes after the interruption to get my head back in the game. School districts don’t even want to hear about things like what my son is going through. It’s his senior year, a very important year for pathways of his future.
Last month the CDC released a report of a study that shows that in-person learning is safe if schools take proper precautions, yet it seems like the unions don’t want teachers to go back to work.
Rojas said that parents in California are claiming that they should have the right to choose whether or not they send their children back to school.
When asked what he missed the most about going to school, Rojas’ son Nicholas Jardim said, “What I really miss the most is my friends and how I used to play with them at recess.”
That’s another component of virtual learning from home. The psychological damage being done to millions of school children will be studied for decades because kids need to socialize with other kids. Suicides are happening due to the isolation of virtual learning and for that reason alone you would think the teacher’s unions would want their teachers to go back to in-person learning if they really believed it’s all about the kids, but with the advent of the COVID-19 virus, the parents are getting a very strong lesson themselves in the reality that in many cases the teacher’s unions care more about the employment of adults than the education of our children.
Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is fighting back against critics who insulted her for her Zoom conference background.
Boebert virtually appeared at a House Natural Resources Committee meeting on Thursday, with a display of guns on a bookshelf behind her in her home. The gun haters thought she made them less safe by having weapons in her house on a video screen. Democrats seriously need to start electing smarter people.
Business Insider reported that critics made fun of the freshman Congresswoman saying that her guns were in a condition of unsafe storage. Boebert fought back saying, “These are ready for use.”
Boebert chided the House Natural Resources Committee rule prohibiting firearms in its hearing room, even when it’s from their own home in a virtual online meeting, saying, “This rule is absurd and discriminative.” She’s absolutely right. She continued. “This is a blatant violation of our constitutional rights.”
Trust me, nobody else in that meeting who complained gives a damn about Constitutional rights. They’re all a bunch of tyrants.
From the perspective of “up yours,” the freshman Congresswoman asked the committee to issue her a “personal security detail” if the committee was going to enforce the rule.
“I would like to request at this time personal security detail that the chairman pays for himself, for every time I’m stepping into the committee room,” she said. “If this is passed, the chairman is trying to take responsibility for my personal safety while stripping away my Second Amendment rights.”
Naturally, the House Natural Resources Committee upheld the ban and she got no security detail.
Business Insider pointed out that a 1967 regulation stipulates that members of Congress can keep guns in their offices and may transport them around the Capitol with the exception of the House and Senate floors. Boebert, Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX), and others complained that the regulation is a restriction that infringes on the Second Amendment.
A Democratic spokesperson told Business Insider, “As far as we’re concerned, we’re not doing anything new here. We’re restating existing policy.” Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA.) mocked Boebert on Thursday over her “gun fetish.”
So, restating an existing policy that has violated the Second Amendment for 54 years is fine?
“Here’s the reality, if someone wants to have a shrine to their gun fetish as a Zoom backdrop in their private life, they can do it. But this is our hearing room. And at some point, we will get past the COVID epidemic and we’ll all start showing up in person. And our safety and our ability to conduct business civilly without feeling threatened is a relevant consideration, unfortunately,” he said snarkily.
This nimrod is mistaking a member of Congress trying to make a point about Constitutional rights for a gun fetish. Someone should send him a copy of the Second Amendment. Representative Boebert has a Bill of Rights fetish that Huffman should try sometime.
Representative Jason Crow (D-CO), a veteran, took to social media to insult Boebert.
“Let’s call this what it is — a political stunt. I never stacked guns on a bookshelf when at war, let alone on a Zoom in my living room. Unless you’re on patrol in Afghanistan, this is the right way to store a gun.”
Apparently, this moron doesn’t know the difference between being at war and on a virtual Zoom meeting. The “political stunt” is to point out how Democrat tyrants are crushing our Constitutional rights. Right now they are preparing legislation geared to end your gun rights.
Representative Katie Porter (D-CA) also took to social media and tweeted about the virtual background that hurts her feelings.
“I always thought my dirty dishes piled up and accumulating bacteria were the most dangerous thing in a Zoom background.”
How are her dirty dishes dangerous to others in a virtual Zoom meeting? Are these clowns seriously trying to get people to believe they can be harmed by things through a monitor? Who votes for morons like this?
After experiencing a large amount of criticism, Boebert shot back [pun intended] at a Twitter user who accused the Congresswoman for having “unsafe gun storage.”
“Who says this is storage? These are ready for use.”
I am shocked by this. I felt sure that Toobin had proved he was able to get himself off. But the New Yorker decided to quit jerking him off and they fired him over his masturbation on a conference on Zoom. He was yanked from his job at the New Yorker over that. He tried explain that his monkey had poured milk all over the kitchen floor and that was why he was spanking it.
Gosh. That was fun, wasn’t it? Far left whacko, Jeffrey Toobin was fired from the New Yorker over the scandal but at least CNN has kept him so far. That is probably because he is so willing to cover up for Joe Biden. They are going to need all the help they can get. Toobin will take all of Biden’s mistakes and blame it on Trump and the Republicans.
Condé Nast human resources chief Stand Duncan wrote to staff:
“I am writing to share with you that our investigation regarding Jeffrey Toobin is complete, and as a result, he is no longer affiliated with our company. I want to assure everyone that we take workplace matters seriously. We are committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels respected and upholds our standards of conduct.”
“I was fired today by @NewYorker after 27 years as a Staff Writer. I will always love the magazine, will miss my colleagues, and will look forward to reading their work.”
CNN has remained mum because they fear being called hypocrites since they allowed him to jerk of his followers on their station every day. At least they are consistent.
Both people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak freely, noted that it was unclear how much each person saw, but both said that they saw Toobin jerking off. The two sources described a juncture in the election simulation when there was a strategy session, and the Democrats and Republicans went into their respective break out rooms for about 10 minutes. At this point, they said, it seemed like Toobin was on a second video call. The sources said that when the groups returned from their break out rooms, Toobin lowered the camera. The people on the call said they could see Toobin touching his penis. Toobin then left the call. Moments later, he called back in, seemingly unaware of what his colleagues had been able to see, and the simulation continued.
It might be hard on him to find another job. People see you masturbate once and the magic is gone.
Two people who were on the call told VICE separately that the call was an election simulation featuring many of the New Yorker’s biggest stars: Jane Mayer was playing establishment Republicans; Evan Osnos was Joe Biden, Jelani Cobb was establishment Democrats, Masha Gessen played Donald Trump, Andrew Marantz was the far right, Sue Halpern was left wing democrats, Dexter Filkins was the military, and Jeffrey Toobin playing the courts. There were also a handful of other producers on the call from the New Yorker and WNYC.
Both people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to speak freely, noted that it was unclear how much each person saw, but both said that they saw Toobin jerking off.
The New Yorker announced he was suspended but they left out the reason for the suspension. He appeared on CNN on Saturday before asking for time off. Toobin says he will not be hiring a lawyer because he knows he can get himself off.
He could claim mental incapacitation. Just from his Trump Derangement Syndrome alone. He says he didn’t know the others could see him. Why did he think the woman was pointing at his package and laughing?
Additionally, the New Yorker editor David Remnick wrote in a memo to all staffers: “Dear All, As you may have read in various news reports today, one of our writers, Jeff Toobin, was suspended after an incident on a Zoom call last week. Please be assured that we take such matters seriously and that we are looking into it. Best, David.”
Toobin seemingly confirmed that exposing himself was the motivation behind the suspension, though he claimed it was merely an accident.
“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera. I apologize to my wife, family, friends, and co-workers,” he told Motherboard in a statement.
Massive amounts of children from foreign countries are coming across the American border illegally. The Democrats have demanded that the children are the responsibility of the American taxpayer now. At the same time, there is a transformation in the American public schools to make space for these new dependents to exclude teaching American children.
“U.S. Border Patrol apprehended more than 150,000 illegal border-crossers during the month of March—50,000 more than February—according to former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan,” The Epoch Times reported.
A further 30,000 evaded capture, according to Morgan, who has received the provisional CBP numbers from internal sources.
The March total edges out the highest month in 2019, during the most recent border crisis. In May 2019, Border Patrol apprehended 144,000 people between ports of entry.
“The border is wide open. … It’s not secure. Drugs are pouring in, and criminal aliens are pouring in right now,” Morgan said during a press conference along the Rio Grande on March 30.
And Americans are being conditioned that we must make their new homeland very comfortable for them.
In what sounds like a page out of a teacher’s training in a public school Equity program to elevate foreign cultures and people, Americans are being conditioned to accept that children of illegal immigrants and children who have ended up here alone will be hosted in American public schools to the exclusions of American students.
Remember this is funny to Democrat Kamala Harris, the most popular Vice President in the history of the United States:
Kamala Harris laughs hysterically when discussing struggling parents who aren’t able to send their kids to school. pic.twitter.com/h4O4Ujkc4T
From Harris’s state of California, Fox News reported,
“We have 130,000 kids who haven’t been allowed in a classroom for over a year in the San Diego Unified School District. It’s great that there’s in-person learning for those unaccompanied minors from Central America, but I wish every child in San Diego County were allowed the same opportunity for in-person teaching,” San Diego County Supervisor Jim Desmond told Fox News.
“The system is broken when San Diego teachers are teaching migrant children in person, but the 100k students of taxpaying families at San Diego Unified School District are stuck learning in Zoom school,” Emily Diaz, an SDUSD parent, told Fox News in an email.
A story from the New York Post is incredible information about illegal children who are now the responsibility of the American taxpayer, who are COVID positive, and who will be attending American public schools, even when American children can not.
“The hundreds of illegal child migrants at the San Diego Convention Center have a coronavirus infection rate far higher than allowed for California schools to reopen — yet teachers will still give them in-person instruction before local kids, according to a report.
The San Diego County Office of Education confirmed to Fox News Tuesday it was “providing the education program for the unaccompanied migrant children” at the convention center, sparking outrage from parents, education officials, and lawmakers alike. Local students will take online-only classes until April 12 at the earliest.
Of the 700-plus unaccompanied girls transferred to the center, at least 82 tested positive for the virus Tuesday afternoon, Fox News reported, citing US Department of Health and Services figures.”
So California Public education is now focused on immigrant children. Are Americans yet uncomfortable about that? If they are, don’t fear. Equity departments are prepared to train people that their discomfort is good because racism is bad.
Tax payers in CA are now having to accept the fact illegal immigrants are getting taught in person learning by San Diego Teachers while their own children haven’t been allowed that “luxury” in over a year & are still online only for school. #BidensAmericahttps://t.co/GFoUODdcL6
Get ready because America is about to see another consequence of Culturally Responsive Teaching models put out by Eric Schmidt’s “New America,” which is implemented through the public school “Equity” department and is a real insurrection of the American system.
That is the hope of the third world, to change our country forever.
The dissidents use fake names and turn off the video feed when they meet for secret Zoom calls. One wonders if they wear the classic glasses and nose with mustache mask just to be sure. They usually get together online to coordinate soccer practices and who’s going to bring the snacks to the next game, but now they get together covertly to strategize and come up with tactics. These folks could face serious repercussions, maybe even be canceled, if anyone found out that they were talking.
However, things have gotten so extreme that Zoom meetings, emails, and online IM’s just aren’t cutting it, so they decided one weekend to meet in person.
In a backyard of a four-bedroom house sat ten people who had the courage to make the trip and join the conclave. These were rebels and they had a cause. They are wealthy Los Angels parents, liberals if you will, who send their kids to Harvard-Westlake, the most prestigious private school in the city. And very expensive on top of it.
By standards of the Great Unwashed in the middle class, they’re wealthy and want for nothing but at the same time they appear pretty average by Harvard-Westlake standards. These are couples who both work and claim their success is by their education and not from inherited family wealth or by family connections. What they all came to realize that is causing them to meet and talk about in secret is that Harvard-Westlake which costs over $40,000 a year to send a child there is teaching their children that capitalism is evil.
As is all too common these days with the Woke Supremacy capitalism means white people and if capitalism is evil then so are white people.
These parents are saying that their children are afraid to speak up in class about the Marxist teachings of capitalism being evil, and they are most frightened about what’s going to happen when the school starts to implement programs to make it an “anti-racist institution” when back in July they read a 20-page document entitled “Anti-Racism at Harvard-Westlake School” that is set to make their children obsess on race and add importance to it in ways that they find horrifying.
“I grew up in L.A., and the Harvard School definitely struggled with diversity issues. The stories some have expressed since the summer seem totally legitimate,” one of the fathers shared. The parent said he has no problem with the school trying to remedy past wrongs when it comes to prior diversity issues, including bringing more minority voices and issues into the curriculum, but he definitely has a problem with the same school teaching his children that America is a systemically bad place and that his kids carry racial guilt collectively.
In other words, a school that they pay $40,000 a year to send their children to is telling their kids that capitalism, which is what allows their parents to afford such an expensive education in the first place, is inherently bad and that their white children are guilty of racism simply because they are white.
You can put as much lipstick on that pig as you want but it’s still racism.
RACISM: a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human racial groups determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to dominate others or that a particular racial group is inferior to the others.
Harvard-Westlake, among other things, is guilty of the latter part of Webster’s definition of racism. The school is trying to shame white children into believing they are inferior to other students because they are inherently racist due to the color of their skin.
These kids’ civil rights are being violated. They are being treated differently because of the color of their skin.
“They are making my son feel like a racist because of the pigmentation of his skin,” one mother says. Pigmentation sounds like one of those fancy words an educated white person would say that is rrrrrrraaaaaaaciiiiiist.
Another parent asks the group, “How does focusing a spotlight on race fix how kids talk to one another? Why can’t they just all be Wolverines?”
This Harvard-Westlake group of parents is only one of many quietly organizing around the country to combat an ideological movement that has completely taken over schools. Nobody wants to be called a racist, and the Woke Supremacy uses that to their advantage by setting things up so if you disagree with the Supremacy in any way shape, or form you are labeled a racist. And folks, this is a school in blue-saturated California.
And it’s not just in California and it’s not just parents who are noticing this takeover of our youth by indoctrination into Marxist progressivism. In New York, a teacher spoke out about what’s going on.
“I am in a cult. Well, that’s not exactly right. It’s that the cult is all around me and I am trying to save kids from becoming members.” He sounds like he escaped from a Heaven’s Gate meeting, but he is actually a math teacher at one of the top elite high schools in New York City, and e is a liberal. “I studied critical theory; I saw Derrida speak when I was in college,” he said, “so when this ideology arrived at our school over the past few years, I recognized the language and I knew what it was. But it was in a mutated form.”
This teacher is speaking out because he is very concerned by the toll this ideology is taking on his students. “I started seeing what was happening to the kids. And that’s what I couldn’t take. They are being educated in resentment and fear. It’s extremely dangerous.”
Is there anyone who will officially start fighting back before it’s too late? Marxists always indoctrinate the children because they figure it’s easier to indoctrinate them into their radical ideology before they experience too much real-world wisdom.
This sounds an awful lot like cancel culture in tech these days in that everything is in the details, the little fine print that defines the terms of service that gives the Woke Supremacy the power to force you to accept their way. It’s their way or the highway.
“The school can ask you to leave for any reason,” a mother at Brentwood said of a child attending a Los Angeles prep school. “Then you’ll be blacklisted from all the private schools and you’ll be known as a racist, which is worse than being called a murderer.”
I said all along that the rich white liberals will be the downfall of our society and I was right. I also said the liberalism that they pushed for and the leftist causes they gave money to support will one day come back and bite them in their liberal white a**. I was right about that too.
As with all Community Organizing activities, some of the “true believers,”; their most devious members, masquerade as Conservatives in order to infiltrate Republican groups so they can cause division, steal information, and taint the movement’s culture.
As the Lincoln Project, a group meant to look like Republican s who were upset over President Donald J. Trump, falls under security and information about their far-left radical funding, we see the familiar patterns of infiltrators to the Republican Party. The group was made up of well-connected failed political consultants who had a stranglehold of sorts on GOP candidates but could never manger to win any races.
IS IT THE POLITICAL ELITE, CONSULTANT CLASS, AGAINST THE REST OF THE PEOPLE?
It appears so, yes.
Now we have to wonder out loud if that was done on purpose for political reasons, or do they all just run together like a pack of dogs and help each other feed off the donor class, agreeing to tell whatever lies will get the cash?
A recent story in Townhall connects the dots that the group Lincoln Project, which is falling apart amid claims of pedophilia, was funded by far-left radical Democrat Chuch Schumer of New York, and now we find out, former Community Organizer POTUS Barack Obama has his finger prints on the group as well.
The Lincoln Project paid former Obama spokesman Bill Burton’s consulting firm over $1 million and other far-left community organizing groups meant to push voters to the left.
“The group raised some $90 million, but no one really knows where it all went, and new relationships are drawing more scrutiny into how this project managed its finances. Take this relationship with Obama’s former staffers that was up until recently undisclosed. Now, is this shocking? No. In fact, Jennifer Van Laar documented this alliance over the weekend at our sister site, RedState. It looks like even the liberal media is now covering and confirming the report (via CNBC)”:
From the Tweeted document:
The anti-Trump Lincoln Project paid a consulting firm run by former Obama deputy press secretary Bill Burton to conduct a Black voter outreach program in Pennsylvania, which turned out to be the decisive state in the 2020 election.
The super PAC paid $1.5 million to the firm, BG Causes LLC, during the 2020 election cycle, according to data from the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Federal Election Commission filings show that the two $750,000 checks sent to BG Causes in October were intended for “voter outreach services.”
BG Causes runs the federal political activities of Bryson Gillette, the consulting firm Burton founded last year, the former Obama spokesman told CNBC. He also provided details on the Black voter outreach effort that was partially funded by the Lincoln Project.
The relationship between Burton’s firm and the Lincoln Project had not been reported. It is the latest glimpse into the financial dealings of the super PAC, which was founded by Republicans and conservatives who were dedicated to defeating former President Donald Trump in 2020.
DO THE LEFT, AND THE RIGHT HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON?
Yes. We, the people, are always getting taken advantage of, and rarely do any of us get officeholders who serve our needs.
Glenn Greenwald chimed in on the story and claimed it was liberals who were the victims. “It was a massive financial scam to enrich its founders at the expense of gullible liberals,” Greenwald wrote.
“The people heralded on MSNBC & CNN as heroic figures of great integrity and conscience were, all along, exploiting and manipulating liberals’ fears to fleece them out of cash in the middle of a pandemic & unemployment crisis to get themselves out of debt & buy now homes & boats,” he said.
“They also covered up rampant complaints of sexually predatory behavior in their organization and then, when they surfaced, outright lied to the public, claiming they knew nothing. But as we’ll see with Neera Tanden’s confirmation, that stuff is just a partisan game that’s played,” said Greenwald.
SO WHO IS ZOOMING WHO?
The political elite lives off winning races for candidates who live off politics and auxiliary business. They are unconcerned about producing a public policy that helps non-political people have a higher quality of life. That is a fact. Look around.
A Populist Movement is a result of the governed flipping that around.
The dictionary describes a “Populist” as a person, especially a politician, who strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups.
Can you see it now? What we have is a global elite versus a populist movement. At this point, there are Republicans and Democrats in each group.
The story of the Lincoln project’s demise is one of importance because it reveals a shifting political culture. Pay attention to that, and get ready for 2024.
Video footage has emerged from a recent People Magazine interview that shows a clearly frustrated Jill Biden sitting awkwardly with Joe Biden in the White House in what is labeled as footage from People, where Joe is paused for a long time as if he is searching in his mind for some information. There is a very long pause by Joe, and Jill has a traditional look on her face of a caregiver who has been pushed to their point of frustration.
The video has been edited and cut together, but also highlights a real concerns Americans have about the Bidens.
Curiously, the leaked footage comes at the same time news is breaking that Kamala Harris is handling important phone calls for the administration, raising the question of what is going on with Joe and how much longer he will be able to carry out duties of “President.”
Americans wonder who has the power in DC and who is carrying out the duties of the President.
“Vice President Kamala Harris has begun to take calls on behalf of President Joe Biden, raising questions about his ability to do the job of President. The White House published a readout yesterday entitled “Readout of Vice President Kamala Harris Call with President Emmanuel Macron of France.”
Vice President Kamala Harris spoke today with President Emmanuel Macron of France. He expressed his commitment to strengthening bilateral ties between the United States and France and revitalizing the transatlantic alliance. Vice President Harris and President Macron agreed on the need for close bilateral and multilateral cooperation to address COVID-19, climate change, and support democracy at home and worldwide. They also discussed numerous regional challenges, including those in the Middle East and Africa, and the need to confront them together. The Vice President thanked President Macron for his leadership on gender equality and France’s contribution to NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover.
It is bizarre for a Vice President to contact key world leaders just weeks into a new administration. Harris also recently spoke with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.”
NOW CONSIDER WHAT WE ARE LOOKING AT HERE:
“Not to the be shown to the public” is on the video is clearly seen on the footage.
Democrat activists were eager to cover the story up, with the help of Twitter, who marked the footage as “manipulated.”
In First White House Interview, Joe & Jill Biden Talk Marriage, Family, Prayer — and the Challenges Ahead
“The new president and first lady open up about their initial days after returning to Washington, D.C., and starting the nation’s next chapter: “We have problems, but we also have enormous opportunities,” People wrote.
Here is the interview:
Reaction to the leaked footage showed fear for the country:
Look at this softball interview:
“How long is this going to take?” he asked. “I need to get back to the Oval.”
Only when Biden, 78, sat down beside wife Jill Biden did he seem to exhale, pausing the nation’s crises — “We have problems, but we also have enormous opportunities” — to get misty-eyed about his grandchildren and the “surreal” return to a building the former senator and vice president had frequented but never called home.
Some things are very different in the White House. The Bidens moved in only hours after the Trumps vacated on Jan. 20. But others are just as they remembered, starting with Michelle Obama‘s kitchen garden.
(“The garden is going strong!” the new first lady, 69, reports — and Obama herself soon concurred, with an Instagram post showing off a vegetable basket from the Bidens, grown right outside.)
And Jill, who goes by Dr. Biden — or “Dr. B” to her students — is back to teaching English at Northern Virginia Community College, though instruction is over Zoom for now. She is the first presidential spouse in modern memory to juggle a separate career. “That’s my passion,” she says. “That’s my life.”
The footage is there, and the fact remains that Harris is doing the job of the President. American’s concerns are, of course, just dismissed by the left.
Time will tell what the footage is that we just saw, and People Magazine’s role in covering up the real story.
New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo has again shirked responsibility for thousands of New Yorkers who died because he made a command decision to force COVID-19 patients into nursing homes with the most vulnerable of our society, the elderly. The Hollywood freaks gave this man and me for his press briefings on how he was handling coronavirus.
This time, the arrogant tyrant governor blamed nursing home staff for spreading the virus to their patients. Even if true, it wouldn’t have happened if Cuomo had not decided to put elderly nursing home patients in harm’s way by violating the CDC guidelines and forcing COVID-19 patients in the facilities with them. There is no excuse for that kind of incompetence in leadership.
Cuomo said that people who blame him for the needless COVID-19 deaths are creating a “toxic political environment” and spreading “conspiracy theories.”
Nowadays anything a Democrat doesn’t like that is said about them is labeled a conspiracy theory. Well, there’s no conspiracy theory about this. The Cuomo administration forced COVID-19 patients into nursing homes. That’s not a conspiracy theory, it’s fact.
On Monday, Cuomo spoke at the media about the reports that his administration hid their real coronavirus deal count number in nursing homes when President Donald Trump started pressuring them on social media. Democrats are masters at blaming other people for everything they do. Donald Trump was their scapegoat for four years
We reported last week when the New York Post released a bombshell report where Melissa DeRosa, a top aide to the governor, admitted to a group of New York state Democrats on a Zoom call that the governor’s office withheld the information from state lawmakers because, in her words, they froze when President Trump would tweet negatively about the governor’s handling of the pandemic. And the only reason why Trump tweeted negatively about New York’s abysmal handling of the pandemic is that after all, he did for the state of New York during the pandemic, which amounted to a very large list, Andrew Cuomo after already praising him for what he did for his state, months later started bashing the president because that’s what the party told him to do because they had an election to win.
“Executive powers have nothing to do with nursing homes and the legislature can overturn executive measures,” Cuomo said during his news conference. “We know the virus can’t be mandated within state boundaries or county boundaries. These are public health decisions, not decisions to be made for local politics. I get these are difficult decisions, but otherwise, people die, and these decisions should not be politicized.”
In other words, Cuomo said that he can do anything he wants because the legislature can stop him if they don’t like what he’s doing. What an inept, blundering sad sack of a man. Even so, the whole point is that the legislature didn’t know what he was doing at the time he was doing it because they hid the data.
He laid out “facts” disputing that his administration hid COVID-19 deaths, despite a damning report from New York State Attorney General Letitia James that said Cuomo’s Department of Health neglected to reveal how many people living in nursing homes died in hospitals, undercounting total nursing home COVID-19 deaths as much as 50%. And don’t forget that his aide spilled the beans to members of the New York party
“The DOH has always fully and publicly reported all COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes and hospitals,” Cuomo said. “They have always been fully reported. Nursing homes had the most vulnerable population, we know that. Nationwide, 36% of the deaths are in nursing homes, you know what percent of the population are people in nursing homes? One percent … New York is 34 in nursing home deaths as a percentage of total deaths. 34 out of 50 states. New York state is one of only [nine] states that counts what’s called ‘presumed fatalities’ in nursing homes.”
The governor said last August the Trump administration’s DOJ requested public information on nursing homes.
“We paused the state legislature’s request. We voluntarily complied with the DOJ request for information. Two very different things,” he claimed. “Nursing homes have the most vulnerable populations, we know that!”
Then why did he force COVID-19 patients on them?
He continued, citing “much distortion” surrounding his March 25, 2020, executive order to push coronavirus patients into nursing homes to free hospital space. But we already know that the hospitals never ran out of space. Trump sent the USNS Comfort to New York to help and they never used any of the 1,000 hospital beds.
The AP reported that over 9,000 COVID-19 patients were released from hospitals and sent to nursing homes because of Cuomo’s executive order. Over 15,000 seniors died.
Cuomo said that at the time he made the blundering decision to kill thousands of seniors the CDC’s guidance advised those coronavirus patients leaving hospitals were not very likely to be contagious and they could be moved into nursing homes. It was a lie.
We reported when Seema Verma, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) administrator, told Breitbart that New York’s Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo originally issued guidance that contradicted federal guidelines for nursing homes battling the pandemic virus.
“I just want to make it very clear that our guidance was absolutely crystal clear,” Verma said in an interview late last week. “It was clear and unmistakable. Any insinuation to the contrary is woefully mistaken at best and dishonest at worst. We put out our guidance on March 13. It’s very clear when it says that, I’m actually going to read this to you, it says that: ‘When should a nursing home accept a resident who is diagnosed with DTMNBN-19?’ It says: ‘A nursing home can accept a resident diagnosed with DTMNBN-19 and still under transmission-based precautions,’ which means if this person is infectious you have to take precautions. It says ‘as long as the facility can follow CDC guidance for transmission-based precautions.’ It says: ‘If a nursing home cannot, it must wait until these precautions are discontinued,’ meaning if you are not able to care for this patient—somebody is still positive and you’re not equipped to care for the patient, then you shouldn’t accept the patient into your care. That’s really important because longstanding discharge—when you’re discharging a patient from the hospital, longstanding guidelines require when you transfer them somewhere you transfer them to a place that can take care of their needs whether they’re going home or they’re going to a nursing home or some other facility.”
Cuomo said that of 613 New York nursing homes, 365 received a person from a hospital. Cuomo claimed that during the time his order was active, 98% of these nursing homes already had COVID-19 in their facility prior to admitting hospital patients. But he still ordered COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes. The man is insufferable!
“COVID did not get into the nursing homes by people coming from hospitals,” Cuomo said. “COVID got into the nursing homes by staff walking into the nursing home when they didn’t know they had COVID.”
“These decisions are not political decisions,” Cuomo said. They were all political decisions. “They’re all made on the best information the medical professionals had at the time. And in New York we talk to the best experts on the globe. And I’ve said to the people of this state many times, nobody’s been here before, nobody knows for sure — COVID is new.” Again, the CMS administrator called bullschtein.
NY State Republican Senate Minority Leader Rob Ortt gave following statement:
Governor Cuomo’s failure to apologize this afternoon was a shocking slap in the face to the New Yorkers who have lost loved ones to COVID-19. His inability to take blame for the hurt inflicted on our families by his administration’s relentless disinformation campaign is wrong on every level. The Governor seems incapable of comprehending that it was his Administration at fault, and nobody else. He continues to shift the blame anywhere but upon himself and his top officials. The Governor’s major excuse for the failure of his Administration to provide accurate, timely information to the public was, ‘We were busy.’ This is a pathetic response coming from a man who had the time to publish and promote a book about his pandemic response while New Yorkers clamored for the truth.To be clear, the Senate Republicans were never notified by the Governor’s Administration regarding the Department of Justice request. People want the truth and the only way that can be provided is through investigations by the Department of Justice and the Attorney General. We know this even more now because Senate Democrats have shown they were willing partners in the lies and the coverup. For the thousands of New Yorkers who lost a cherished loved one in a nursing home, for those who can’t get a vaccine because of this governor’s tight fisted yet incompetent administration of vaccines, and for the professionals who felt compelled to resign from a Department of Health driven not by science but by politics, justice must be served.
