Cuomo's nursing home coverup

Post by cassowary » Sun Feb 14, 2021 10:45 pm

Cuomo's advisor admits to covering up covid deaths in nursing homes.
Three months ago New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was awarded an Emmy for “his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of TV to inform and calm people around the world.” Turns out the Emmys had the right actor—but the wrong performance. Increasingly it looks like Mr. Cuomo’s real act was to keep people from finding out how many people in his state’s nursing homes died from Covid-19.

On Thursday the New York Post reported that Melissa DeRosa, the Governor’s top aide, admitted to Democratic leaders that the state had deliberately kept the true numbers from them. In a Wednesday conference call, Ms. DeRosa told Democrats the Cuomo administration rejected a legislative request for the figures last August because Donald Trump was tweeting that “we killed everyone in nursing homes” and was directing “the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us.”

As Ms. DeRosa put it, “Basically, we froze.” The administration wasn’t sure, she said, if any information it released to state lawmakers or the Department of Justice “was going to be used against us” or “if there was going to be an investigation.”


Nursing home deaths are a sensitive issue for Mr. Cuomo because of a March 25 health department directive that barred these homes from rejecting people because they had Covid-19. The Associated Press reports that 9,056 recovering patients were sent into nursing homes after the directive, more than 40% higher than what the state had previously reported.

In January state Attorney General Letitia James released a report on an investigation into complaints about how the nursing homes handled Covid-19. Two findings stand out. First, that “a larger number of nursing home residents died from COVID-19 than” the official data reflected. Second, that the March 25 directive “requiring the admission of COVID-19 patients into nursing homes may have put residents at increased risk of harm in some facilities and may have obscured the data available to assess that risk.”

Perhaps many decisions that look bad today were made in good faith at the time. But coming as it does after the attorney general’s report, Ms. DeRosa’s admission that the Cuomo administration hid nursing home deaths smacks of a coverup. Meanwhile, the people of New York, especially those who lost loved ones in nursing homes to the pandemic, still lack an honest accounting of what went wrong and why.

Mr. Cuomo dominates New York state politics, and he dismisses critics and punishes opponents without challenge. Republicans are a rump minority in the Legislature in what has become a one-party state, like California and Illinois.

That leaves the task of accountability to others. The questions now are whether Democrats in Albany have what it takes to do their jobs and hold hearings on the coverup, whether state and federal prosecutors will investigate and prosecute if called for, and whether the media that so cheered Mr. Cuomo through his Covid-19 press conferences will hold him to the same standard they held Mr. Trump?

Oh, but there's more.........

UK's 'Do Not Resuscitate' Orders Drawing Anger
Wrongheaded public policies implemented in attempts to stem the spread of COVID-19 have caused more harm than good in many cases here in the United States. But in the United Kingdom, outrage is growing about a particularly pernicious public health directive: ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ orders for categories of patients with COVID.

How does this rate with Cuomo? Probably by the same measures of lack of transparency and incompetence:
One unidentified source told the regulator that some care homes and learning disability services had received instructions from GPs to impose a blanket DNACPR on people in their care. A few sources said there had been inappropriate GP communications to people in their own homes about advance care planning and DNACPRs.

Why attribute to incompetence what clearly was political in that Cuomo was actively trying to make sure Trump received no positive press for aiding NYC? Which was his motivation to send COVID patients to Nursing home rather than sending them to the Field hospital Trump order constructed in teh Jacob Javits center and the hospital ship Trump sent?

Cuomo sacrificed the lives of 15,000 people to put forward the Democrats political agenda. I wonder if those people that died thought it worth it to died a horrible death ALONE so the Democrats could pick up some votes?

Politically motivated incompetence is still incompetence. 'I can do it on my own, I don't need your help' being a stronger motivator than 'Do I have sufficient resources to let me decline and neg on the President's offer and get away with it'....... still incompetent.....'>.......

Maybe Cuomo wanted old people to die so as to save money. NYC is broke, right?

That’s probably true.

There are reports coming out today that Nancy Pelosi was warned weeks before Jan 6th that there was a organized attack on the capital planned for Jan 6th. When Trump made the national guard available as the head of house security she said no. The head of the capital police was planning to testify at Trump's impeachment trial to that effect.

The Nazis didn't burn down the Reichstag. It was burned down by the anarchist the Nazis caught the day before. They let him go certain that he was going to burn down the Reichstag. Which reminds me of Nancy's march through the crowds of Tea Party protesters in 2010. She said that someone used the "n" word while she and black members of congress marched through the crowd. The Democrats and the MSM used that as a bludgeon to discredit the Tea Party movement. But no one ever came up with a video or audio recording of that happening. It seems lightning does strike twice in the same place....

Yeah. The old outside of the democrat crony's ripping off tax payers is the biggest drain on the state treasury
