Today’s Short-Term Memory Reminder. – Americans have now been living under a federally-declared “state of emergency” over a virus for one full year. “15 Days to Flatten the Curve” has turned into “365 Days to Suppress the Constitution.”
Today is also the 187th anniversary of the day the Alamo fell to the Army of Mexico led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
Remember the Alamo! Remember the Constitution!
Could today also be the day of the fall of the Cuomo Administration? – Probably not, but one can always hope. The embattled, mass murdering, sexual harassing, serial bullying New York Governor took another blow on Friday as the Democrat-dominated state legislature voted overwhelmingly to strip him of his emergency powers.
More troubles for Gov. Cuomo as Legislature strips his emergency powers amid dual scandals. | Just The News https://t.co/fvkHx9NQSe

As always in the corrupt political world of New York, there’s a catch here: Cuomo has agreed to sign the bill, a commitment he made on Wednesday. That likely means that he has cut a deal with legislators that this will be the only action they take against him, putting an effort impeach him outright off the table.
If this is surprising to you, it shouldn’t be. After all, the Democrats in the legislature and the corrupt news media led by the New York Times were all perfectly happy to keep Cuomo in office and continue pretending he was doing a great job so long as killing old folks in nursing homes and then covering it all up remained his only scandal. After all, people do tend to become more likely to vote Republican as they age, so hey, Cuomo’s policies helped the legislators in their efforts to get re-elected.
They considered that Cuomo scandal – the deaths of thousands of elderly citizens – to be a feature, not a glitch. Remember, if you vote Republican, they automatically assume that you are a racist bigot; thus, they hate you and would rather you were dead. Cuomo just followed up on that modern Democrat principle.
Think about it: We have known about the consequences of Cuomo’s COVID policies for at least 10 months now, since Fox Meteorologist Janice Dean began reporting on it last May. Yet, literally no one in the New York legislature or at the New York Times bothered to say boo about Cuomo until it was revealed he had systematically tried to cover it all up, and – more importantly – until his former female staffers began to go public about his serial abuse of them while they worked for him.
Then, suddenly, Cuomo became a guy who was publicly identified to be on the wrong side of one of the Democrat Party’s pet causes – not human life, but protecting women in the work place. Once that happened, he became persona non grata to the Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter, and thus a threat to the re-election chances of New York Democrat politicians, which in turn mad him a threat to all the Democrat activists working at the New York Times, CBS, etc.
On Friday, CBS News also aired the second part of its interview with former Cuomo staffer Charlotte Bennett, who, among other things, accuses the horny Governor of New York of “lying when he said that he had personally taken his mandatory workplace sexual harassment training course. She named another employee, office director Stephanie Benton, as the person who took the course for him, though Cuomo signed off on it as if he had taken it himself. According to a statement from the governor’s office, Benton denies Bennett’s claim.”
I mean, hell, why would this guy need to take a course in workplace sexual harassment training? After all, he appears to be the world’s foremost expert on the subject.
But back to the main point: If you see Cuomo sign the bill to remove his emergency powers, then don’t expect to see the media covering his scandals any longer. He would only do this deal with the sign-off of the New York Times editorial board.
Democrats: If they didn’t exist, you could never, never, ever make them up in million, gazillion years.
Speaking of the corrupt News Media’s shilling for Cuomo… – This video compilation captures some of the highlights of the last 10 months of media malfeasance quite well:

Devastating. In a just society, each and every one of the creeps seen here would be removed from their jobs just as Cuomo himself has removed so many New Yorkers from their jobs over the last year.
But we do not live in a just society anymore.
Is it a joke, or is it real? – You tell me, because I have no idea, but it would not surprise me even a little tiny bit if we soon see the current generation of young, brainwashed Americans walking around wearing one of these little gems:

Not all Republican Governors are made of the stern stuff of Ron DeSantis, Christi Noem, Greg Abbott and Tate Reeves. – While some GOP state executives have moved to free their states of the tyranny of masks and business-and-job-killing occupation limits, other Republican governors have continued to rule basically as Democrats, keeping their citizens under their brutish thumbs as they enjoy exercising their powers.
Take Alabama’s ineffectual Kay Ivey as a good example. On Thursday, she decided she isn’t ready to give up her little tinpot dictatorship, extending the state’s insane mask order by yet another month, through April 9:

From the story at The Hill:
The move sets up a split between Southern Republican governors on mask mandates and could be an indication more GOP governors will not follow Texas and Mississippi’s leads right away.
Alabama’s mask order will remain until April 9, after which Ivey said it would not be extended. She notably defended the effectiveness of the order.
“The bottom line is we have kept the mask mandate in place for more than a generous period of time because it has helped,” she wrote. “And as a result of the people of our state doing their part, we have seen dramatic results & real progress being made.”
While the mask mandate will stay for now, Ivey said that given the improving situation she would ease some orders, including restrictions on the size of a group at each restaurant table.
Mighty big of you, Governor. And note that last part: Ivey is such a control freak that she has actually limited not only the total capacity of each restaurant in the state, but has extended her control to even the number of people who can sit at each table.
Honestly, Alabama voters, if this is the best you can do, just go ahead and vote for a damn Democrat. At least then the facade of Republicanism would go away.
Then there’s Ohio Governor Mike Dewine, another pathetic RINO whose behavior in office has differed little from that of Herr Whitmer in neighboring Michigan. Also on Thursday, as pressure built within the state for him to follow the lead of Texas Governor Abbott to lift his useless mask order and capacity limits, DeWine joined Ivey in take the Democrat stand:
Republican Governor Mike DeWine said tonight he doesn't plan to lift Ohio's state's mask mandate and other health orders until new COVID-19 cases reach 50 per 100,000 residents over 2 weeks.
He called masks a "battle-tested tool" to fight the coronavirus. pic.twitter.com/0D5QUSKzDb

There is in fact ZERO actual data to indicate that masks do a damn thing to retard the spread of this virus. None. In making that statement, DeWine simply becomes guilty of spreading Democrat/media propaganda in order to justify his own ongoing desire to treat Ohio as his own little banana republic.
That’s the truth and we should not be shy about saying it.
That is all.
