Well, of course they did. This is what mass killers do. – Andrew Cuomo and his administration have now admitted to systematically under-reporting the number of nursing home deaths in New York caused by Cuomo’s policy of sending elderly patients infected with COVID-19 back to their nursing homes while still contagious. Cuomo’s top aide admitted on Thursday to the under-reporting, saying she did it due to fear of a potential federal investigation.
Naturally, the aide, a dissembling leftist hack named Melissa DeRosa, blame her actions on mean tweets by…wait for it…President Donald Trump. I swear I do not make this stuff up:

From a story at the New York Post:
Governor Cuomo’s top aide privately apologized to Democratic lawmakers for withholding the state’s nursing-home death toll from COVID-19 — telling them “we froze” out of fear the true numbers would “be used against us” by federal prosecutors, The Post has learned.
The stunning admission of a cover-up was made by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa during a video conference call with state Democratic leaders in which she said the Cuomo administration had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August because “right around the same time, [then-President Donald Trump] turns this into a giant political football,” according to an audio recording of the two-hour-plus meeting.
“He starts tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes,” [Hint: That’s exactly what they did] DeRosa said. “He starts going after [New Jersey Gov. Phil] Murphy, starts going after [California Gov. Gavin] Newsom, starts going after [Michigan Gov.] Gretchen Whitmer.”
In addition to attacking Cuomo’s fellow Democratic governors, DeRosa said, Trump “directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”
“And basically, we froze,” she told the lawmakers on the call.
“Because then we were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, what we start saying, was going to be used against us while we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation.”
DeRosa added: “That played a very large role into this.”
It is truly depressing and frankly frightening that so many ghouls just like Cuomo and DeRosa have risen to power in America today. It’s also depressing to know that Cuomo would easily be re-elected if he were to run again, even after causing the needless deaths of thousands of New Yorkers, or that DeRosa would easily win the governor’s office in the state should she become the Democrat nominee.
Liberalism/leftism is a mental disease that robs people of the ability to connect their own voting actions to the societal pathologies that plague their lives. Andrew Cuomo’s political career is living proof of that fact.
CNN is complicit in Cuomo’s mass-killings, too. – While Cuomo was ordering thousands of elderly New Yorkers to their deaths in the state’s nursing homes and DeRosa was helping him hide the real numbers, this is how the corrupt media hacks at CNN were covering the story:

Despicable. Let us never forget that the American media writ large literally lionized Cuomo as a role model for other governors to follow even as he was killing thousands of elderly New Yorkers. The media is complicit. Period.
You’re calling us Nazis??? Well, we’ll see about that! – Mandalorian star Gina Carano put up a tweet recently comparing the social and political climate in the United States to that of pre-WWII Nazi Germany.
As if to absolutely prove her point is 100% correct, Disney fired her for exercising her right to free speech and telling the truth.

You just could never make this stuff up, folks. Don’t even try.
Excerpt from the story at DailyWire:
Disney faced widespread backlash late on Wednesday after a production company that they own announced that it had parted ways with conservative actress Gina Carano after the actress posted some things to social media that some claimed were offensive.
One post, which was a screenshot of someone else’s post that she uploaded to her own account, compared the current divisive political climate in the U.S. to events that took place in Nazi Germany, which critics claimed was her equating Republicans with Jews in Nazi Germany.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” Lucasfilm, a production company owned by Disney, said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Disney’s firing of Carano sparked instant widespread backlash online with “#CancelDisneyPlus” rocketing to the very top of Twitter’s trending news list. Carano was one of the stars on Disney+’s “The Mandalorian.”
In response to Carano’s firing, critics noted how Disney rehired a director that had been fired over disturbing sexually explicit tweets, Disney’s business dealings in communist China, and other controversies that the company has faced in recent years.
“Gina Carano’s post made the point that mass violence starts with hatred for your neighbor,” Daily Caller editor Katrina Haydon wrote. “This is not only uncontroversially true but also one perspective of the commandment to love your neighbor. That idea is not a call to empty niceness. It’s how you prevent suffering.”
“The point that Gina Carano’s post made isn’t even a ‘wild take,’ and she certainly isn’t the first person to get cancelled for viewpoints that differ from the woke mob,” Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott added. “What a dangerous, sad era to live in — where expressing a particular view could cost you your livelihood.”
And so, the woke Perpetual Outrage Mob on Twitter gets its way one more time, and the only well-acted character on The Mandalorian will simply disappear into the ether, likely killing the series for good after one more season. But destroying good things is the Perpetual Outrage Mob’s core competency, so no surprise there.
Pot, Meet Kettle Tweet of the Century:
These are the words of a man with no conscience, no integrity, & no interest in doing the right thing.
Lindsey Graham & other Senators who hold this view are unworthy of public trust.
History will judge them as it should—political cowards who betrayed their oath of office. https://t.co/ECETLNI1cf

Today’s Short Term Memory Reminder. – Hey, remember last week, when I told you that all the members of the Lincoln Project who were out in the media claiming they never knew about the pedo-sexual proclivities of the group’s founder, John Weaver, were lying? Remember how I told you they all knew, that it was impossible for them not to have known, that many in Washington had in fact known about Weaver for 20 years, since he served as campaign manager for John McCain’s failed 2000 presidential campaign? Remember how some members of the Lincoln Project were out there threatening to sue anyone who told that truth about them and Mr. Weaver?
Well, gee, yesterday the Daily Caller ran this story:
Lincoln Project reportedly knew of allegations against Weaver in June 2020. Nevertheless, they professed themselves "absolutely shocked" when the news came out last month. https://t.co/Z0NtxTWtX0

Here’s an excerpt:
The Lincoln Project previously expressed shock over allegations against its co-founder John Weaver, but new reporting claims that Lincoln Project members knew of allegations against Weaver as early as June of last year.
Lincoln Project members were made aware of at least 10 allegations of harassment against Weaver in June 2020, the Associated Press reported. The group did not take action against Weaver as it continued its high-profile work combatting the re-election of former President Donald Trump.
Nevertheless, the Lincoln Project expressed shock in January over the allegations against Weaver.
“The totality of his deceptions are beyond anything any of us could have imagined and we are absolutely shocked and sickened by it,” the group said in a January statement.
The Lincoln Project did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Two of the allegations involved Lincoln Project employees, persons with direct knowledge of the situation told the AP. This is the first known suggestion that Weaver targeted staffers within the Lincoln Project, the publication reported.
Lincoln Project co-founder Steve Schmidt has also said that Lincoln Project leaders were not aware of allegations of Weaver’s wrongdoing.
Steve Schmidt, George Conway, and all the rest: Liars.
Glenn Greenwald captured the essence of the Lincoln Project in this tweet:
Good @AP exposé proving what what was already obvious:
1) @ProjectLincoln lied when it denied knowing of complaints about John Weaver’s sexual misconduct;
