Killer Cuomo Claims There’s No Need for an Investigation Into His COVID Policies that Killed Thousands – Send in the Feds!Joe Hoft

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.

But today Killer Cuomo, the governor of New York, claimed that there was no need to look into the activities taken in New York that led to thousands of elderly in New York dying unnecessarily from the China coronavirus.  The Washington Examiner reported:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said there is no need for an independent investigation into his policy on nursing homes that critics say led to thousands of deaths during the coronavirus pandemic.

Cuomo, a Democrat, told reporters during a teleconference on Monday that Democrats and Republicans will never agree on the examination of his now-reversed March 25 directive that prohibited nursing homes from turning away recovering coronavirus patients.

Cuomo is saying this because he is a killer.

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.

As we reported in May, the reason for the Cuomo’s insane directives is related to money:

In 2018, as Governor Andrew Cuomo faced a challenge to his reelection bid in the New York State Democratic primary, he got a last minute $1m cash infusion from the General New York Hospital Association (GNYHA)—a powerful NY healthcare industry group. On April 2, 2020, he repaid the favor when he quietly signed legislation shielding hospital and nursing home executives from any lawsuits stemming from the coronavirus outbreak. The clauses, inserted into the annual budget bill by Cuomo, gave blanket immunity protections for healthcare industry executive and administrators, the same individuals and institutions that have made a fortune moving sick Covid-19 patients to nursing homes.

The GNYHA gave to the Democrats an unheard of $3 million in the 2018 election cycle. Of this, Cuomo and his state party committee received close to $2.3m from various hospitals and nursing home industry donors. Governor Cuomo returned the favor with his directive forcing COVID-19 patients back into elderly homes. This directive provided a massive increase in revenues to organizations associated with the GNYHA who were paid handsomely for COVID patients. It was a bonanza for these entities.

The impact of this decision on elderly New Yorkers in nursing homes is the elderly in these nursing homes spread the disease and died. They died at the worst rate in the country and the world.

The Gateway Pundit reported numerous times that the mortality rates for the China coronavirus are not much worse than a bad flu season across the US with the exception of New York and New Jersey. The death rates in these areas are way above the rest of the country and the world for that matter. It is clear that Governor Cuomo’s policies in New York led to the unnecessary massive number of deaths in the state.

We next reported that Cuomo’s insane and deadly policies not only targeted nursing homes, they also targeted adult care facilities and group homes for people with disabilities.

The March 25 nursing home edict issued by the New York state (NYS) Department of Health (DOH) is NOT the only order NYS enacted, which mandated that Covid-19 infected patients got sent into congregate care facilities from hospitals. NYS ALSO sent COVID-19 infected patients into adult care facilities (ACFs) and into group homes managed under the NYS Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).

Here are links the directives in New York:

Janice Dean from FOX News lost both her parents-in-law to COVID-19 in New York. She wrote an oped on the matter at USA Today. Below is an excellent video that describes the entire deadly scandal:

Last week New York Department of Health Commissioner, Zucker, was in front of the New York Senate and Assembly and he stated (twice) that the Greater New York Hospital Association had nothing to do with the creation of bill text which gave New York State hospitals and nursing homes virtual immunity, including with both COVID and non-COVID patients, retroactive to March 7, 2020. This was passed on April 3, 2020 by Governor Cuomo. Assembly Member Biaggia pointed out to him that the GNYHA placed on its own website a statement that boasted that it had helped write the language for this bill, which Cuomo signed into law the very next day on April 3rd. She stated this GNYHA statement has since been erased from the internet. (link to post here)

Zucker claimed to not have the data as to how many Covid-19 infected people, who were transferred to hospitals from nursing homes, died in those hospitals!

Zucker asked to have more time to get this data accurately assembled. He was asked this question five or six times. He was asked if he knew New York state was the only state which did not gather this data. He refused to acknowledge that fact. Each time, he stated he needed to have time to gather the accurate data, he did not have the data for the Committee members today. He would not answer the question as to why New York state is THE ONLY state which is not gathering this data, which gives New York state the appearance of having a much lower rate of Covid-19 nursing home deaths than ALL other states. He couldn’t answer adequately.

Members accurately pointed out that he had the data for COVID-19 transfers from hospitals to nursing homes (as issue in the recent, July 6th report put out by the New York state DOH) …but did not have the reverse data: how many people were transferred FROM New York state nursing homes to New York state hospitals and who then died (here is that July 6 report).

Overall, it looks like the Democrats in New York are giving Zucker and Cuomo a pass. The federal government needs to step in. Thousands died due to New York’s insane coronavirus policies and now they are hiding the numbers.

EXCLUSIVE: Hezbollah Planned on Using Ammonium Nitrate Stockpile On Israel – Like They Have Done Multiple Times Before – Instead Beirut Blows UpJoe Hoft

Hezbollah’s bomb of choice is ammonium nitrate.  The same substance that blew up a large section of Beirut last week was used by Hezbollah numerous times before against the US and around the world.

The Isreali News source WorldIsraelNews.com reported this morning:

The ammonium nitrate that blew up last week in Beirut was owned by the Hezbollah terror group that intended to use the material in a war against Israel, a top investigative reporter said Friday.

The leader of the Iran-backed terrorist organization, Hassan Nasrallah, is the person at the top responsible for the material having been in Beirut’s port before the massive explosion last week that claimed over 150 lives, wounded 6,000 people and left a large part of the Lebanese capital in ruins, said Channel 13 Arab Affairs reporter Zvi Yehezkeli.

This is not the first time Hezbollah stored or used this substance in a bombing of mass destruction.  Yaacov Apelbaum provided a list of recent events where Hezbollah used this substance to murder innocents.

  1. Germany – May 2020, the German government was tipped off about warehouses in the south of the country where Hezbollah stashed hundreds of kilograms of ammonium nitrate.
  2. UK – September 2018, a large cache belonging to a Hezbollah cells, containing about 3 tons of ammonium nitrate, was found at four locations in North London.
  3. Cyprus – May 2015, Hussein Bassam Abdallah, a Canadian/Lebanese Hezbollah agent was found with 8.2 tons of ammonium nitrate, stored in ice packs, in his home.
  4. Thailand – January 2012, Atris Hussein, a Swedish/Lebanese national and a member of Hezbollah, was arrested with a 4.5 tons a mixture of ammonium nitrate stored in his house in Samut Sakhon.
  5. US –  May 2009, Ali Kourani, a Bronx US/Lebanese national and a member of Hezbollah/Islamic Jihad, traveled to Guangzhou, China to purchase large amounts of ammonium nitrate.
  6. Lebanon – October 1983, Hezbollah blows up the US marines barracks in Beirut.

In 1983 and again in 2020, Hezbollah is responsible for massive bombs exploding in Beirut, Lebanon. 

The explosion in Beirut should be a wake up call to the US and other western nations.  Two Hezbollah members were recently arrested in the US.  Both these individuals had connections to Hezbollah’s chemical of choice.  Both are convicted members of a US based Hezbollah network.

Ali Korani Samawar is currently serving a 40 year sentence.  Samer El Debek, was arrested In June 2017 and was charged with traveling to Panama to conduct surveillance and prep for a terror attack on the Panama Canal. Fadi Yassine, is another Hezbollah operative who is currently serving a 57 month sentence for trafficking weapons to Hezbollah in 2017.

The bomb blast in Beirut is a warning for the West. 

As long as Hezbollah is in Beirut, the world is at risk.

Susan Rice Admits Under Oath She Emailed with Hillary Clinton on Clinton’s Private Email System, Claims 18 Times She ‘Couldn’t Recall’ InformationCristina Laila


Susan Rice

Obama’s former National Security Advisor Susan “Benghazi” Rice admitted under oath she emailed with Hillary Clinton on Clinton’s private email system.

Susan Rice said in her written response to Judicial Watch that she also received emails related to official government business on her own personal email account.

Rice said she ‘does not recall’ a total of 18 times in a 13-page interrogatory in response to discovery granted to Judicial Watch by Judge Royce Lamberth.

Judicial Watch in 2015 discovered Hillary Clinton used a private server and blew the story wide open after uncovering emails she sent from a non “state.gov” email account.

The conservative watchdog group filed a FOIA lawsuit seeking records on “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack.”

Susan Rice appeared on various media outlets in 2012 falsely claiming the Benghazi terror attack — that left 4 Americans dead — stemmed from a YouTube video.

It’s no surprise Susan Rice used Hillary Clinton’s tactics and claimed she ‘couldn’t recall’ anything.

Via Judicial Watch:

In responding to each of the 13 questions asked of her, Rice claimed 18 times that she “does not recall” critical information.

  • When asked to describe meetings or discussions about the events in Benghazi other than daily intelligence briefings, Rice said that she had discussions with friends and family, and “does not recall attending any meetings focused on the events in Benghazi between September 11, 2012 and September 16, 2012, other than attending a ceremony on September 14, 2012, at Joint Base Andrews … ” Rice said she believes she would have discussed the Benghazi attack with members of her UN staff, colleagues at the United Nations, and individuals in attendance at the ceremony on September 14, 2012, at Joint Base Andrews.
  • When asked why she used a non-government email accounts to conduct U.S. government business while U.S. Ambassador to the United States, Rice acknowledged using her personal email account, at times, to conduct official government business without answering the question why she used non-government email accounts.
  • Rice did not directly answer a question about deleting emails. Rather, Rice answered that “when emails related to U.S. government business were sent to [her] personal email account, [she] took steps to ensure that a copy of that email was also on her government email account.” and she “does not recall having need to review and return emails form any non-governmental email account.”

“Susan Rice didn’t recall much about the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi terrorist attack,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Similarly, Hillary Clinton couldn’t recall much in her written sworn responses to Judicial Watch questions – which is one reason why a federal court judge ordered her in-person deposition testimony.”

Dentist Warns Too Much Mask-Wearing Can Lead to Harmful ‘Mask Mouth’Eric A. Blair

Just when you think 2020 can’t get any worse, bam, it does.

A New York dentist now says wearing a face mask for hours can be harmful to your dental health by giving you “mask mouth.”

“We’re seeing inflammation in people’s gums that have been healthy forever, and cavities in people who have never had them before,” Dr. Rob Ramondi, co-founder of One Manhattan Dental, told the New York Post

“About 50% of our patients are being impacted by this, [so] we decided to name it ‘mask mouth’ — after ‘meth mouth.”

“The term ‘meth mouth’ is widely used by dentists to describe the dental problems that arise among methamphetamine users. Addicts often end up with cracked, black- and brown-stained teeth because the stimulant causes sugar cravings, teeth grinding and jaw clenching. They also often neglect their oral hygiene,” The Post wrote.

Constant mask wearing can lead to all kinds of mouth maladies, including cavities, decaying teeth, and dangerous halitosis.

Dr. Mark Sclafani, Ramondi’s business partner, said oral problems can sometimes lead to far worse conditions.

“Gum disease — or periodontal disease — will eventually lead to strokes and an increased risk of heart attacks. People tend to breathe through their mouth instead of through their nose while wearing a mask,” he said.

But Sclafani said that constant mask-wearing has prompted some people to visit the dentist.

“Patients are coming into us like, ‘Wow, my breath smells, I need a cleaning.’ [But] when you smell the bad breath, you either already have periodontal disease or you have a lot of bacteria that’s sitting on your tongue because of dry mouth,” he said.
