Andrew Cuomo: I Wouldn’t Support An Independent Investigation Into NY Nursing Homes And Virus
On Monday, during a teleconference with reporters, New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo expressed his opposition to hiring an independent investigator to explore exactly what happened in nursing homes in New York vis-a-vis the coronavirus.
A reporter asked, “State lawmakers today are investigating COVID-19 in nursing homes; there was some criticism for state health commissioner Howard Zucker for not appearing before the panel. Theres been a lot of back-and-forth about whether you have characterized some of these inquiries as partisan-based; would you support an independent investigation in order to bridge some of this mutual suspicion about partisanship getting into a better public understanding of what exactly happened in group home facilities and nursing homes?”
“No, I wouldn’t do an investigation whether or not it’s political, everybody can make that decision for themselves,” Cuomo answered. “I think you’d have to be blind to realize it’s not political. Just look at where it comes from and look at the sources and look at their political affiliations and look at who wrote the letter in Congress and look at what publications raise it and what media outward networks raise it. It’s kind of incredible.”
“Look at the basic facts on where New York is versus other states, right?” Cuomo continued. “You look at where New York is at the percentage of nursing home deaths it’s all the way at the bottom of the list of states. So I don’t think anyone – you know, what’s political, what’s not political, everyone can make their own decisions.” Read more…
AG Barr: US Facing New Form of ‘Urban Guerrilla Warfare’ Driven by Left’s ‘Lust for Power’
The United States is grappling with a new form of “urban guerrilla warfare” driven by the left’s “lust for power,” Attorney General William Barr told “Life, Liberty & Levin” on Sunday.
Discussing the ongoing Black Lives Matter riots rippling through several U.S. cities, Barr told host Mark Levin that the organization – which has been characterized by the media as a fed-up activist group – is comprised of “Bolsheviks” with a focus on on “some form of socialism, communism.”
“They are a revolutionary group that is interested in some form of socialism, communism. They’re essentially Bolsheviks. Their tactics are fascistic,” he said.
Barr compared the nationwide riots organized by Antifa to “a new form of urban guerrilla warfare.”
“The way the guerrilla…hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean…what they do is they are essentially shielding themselves or shrouding themselves in First Amendment activity,” he explained. “They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising First Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there to shield themselves. That’s where they swim. And what they do is they hijack these demonstrations and they and they provoke violence.”
The group’s radical leanings are reflective of the Democratic party’s far-left shift in recent years, Barr said. “The left has “pulled away from the umbrella of classical liberal values that have undergirded” America and made a “secular religion” out of seeking “complete political victory,” he argued.
