Cuomo Prioritized Family Members, Administration to Receive COVID Tests While Others Were Desperate

The NY Gov arranged COVID testing for his family, including his CNN anchor brother Chris

Governor Andrew Cuomo has been lambasted for his handling of the novel coronavirus in his state of New York. Amongst criticism, is a cover-up for knowingly placing patients who tested positive for COVID-19 back in nursing homes with the most vulnerable elderly population. Now, media outlets have found additional disturbing information.

“In the early months of the pandemic, when COVID-19 tests were scarce, Gov. Andrew Cuomo vowed to make the testing available to those most in need” reports the Democrat and Chronicle. However, “turns out that included his family. Embers and other well-connected people close to his administration” according to reports reviewed Wednesday night.

The Washington Post and the Times Union in Albany, reported: “Cuomo’s office arranged COVID testing for his family, including his CNN anchor brother Chris, and other influential people with close Cuomo ties.” Tests were conducted at their own homes, in part by Dr. Eleanor Adams, “an epidemiologist who was a special advisor to the state Health Department, the reports said, citing unnamed sources.”

Cuomo’s office did not deny reports, but deflected, saying “we should avoid insincere efforts to rewrite the past” Rich Azzopardi, Cuomo’s special adviser, said in a statement. The office also said the state was trying to test as many people as possible “to develop a contact tracing program” and cited door-to-door efforts to test residents in hot spots.

Azzopardi said efforts were aimed at taking “samples from those believed to have been exposed to COVID in order to identify cases and prevent additional ones.” He added, “In the early days of this pandemic, when there was a heavy emphasis on contact tracing, we were absolutely going above and beyond to get people testing – including in some instances going to people’s homes.”

The instances which included “going to people’s homes” just so happened to be family members and those connected to the administration. What a coincidence!

One California town is utilizing the U.S. Constitution and rejecting Governor Gavin Newsom’s mandate that requires schoolchildren to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Oroville, California has officially declared itself a “constitutional republic.” As a constitutional republic, leaders “pledge to fight mandates they say go too far” reports the San Francisco Gate.

Oroville’s Vice Mayor Scott Thomson is the father of two young boys and says the mandate for children was the straw that broke the camel’s back. “He believed the government had no right to tell him what to put into his, or his children’s bodies. Many of his constituents agreed when it came to pandemic mandates” writes the SF Gate.

Thomson felt he and his constituents were left with no choice, and so he declared Oroville a constitutional republic. The declaration passed by the City Council reads:

“Any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens”

Thomson has said that “the desire here is dialogue” rather than sweeping mandates. Oroville is a city of only 20,000 but is rapidly growing, as in recent years it has determined itself to be a sanctuary of place “otherwise exempt from some liberal ideal.”

Oroville is not the first California town to be rebelling. Two years ago, the town of Needles became a “sanctuary city” for the Second Amendment. The move was in defiance of California’s strict gun control laws.

Other towns such as Atwater and Coalinga declared themselves as a “sanctuary city for business” and a town where all businesses are essential, as a consequence of the state’s strict pandemic shutdown orders.

Doocy Grills Biden On His Promise To ‘Shut Down The Virus’

Published

Joe Biden

On Friday, President Biden was questioned about a recent op-ed written under his name in USA Today in which he laid out a plan to “beat [COVID-19] back.”

The op-ed said, “We are going to fight COVID-19 not with shutdowns or lockdowns – but with more widespread vaccinations, boosters, testing and more. We will beat it back with science and speed, not chaos and confusion – just as we did in the spring and again with the more powerful delta variant in the summer and fall.”

Reporters noted that the language appears to be a shift in the goalposts after Biden repeatedly promised to “shut down the virus” during his presidential campaign last year.

“So on COVID policy, it seems like the administration is starting to soften some of the language,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said. “There’s this new op-ed where you talk about COVID, ‘We are going to beat it back.’ Are you no longer going to ‘shut it down?’”

“We got to beat it back before we shut it down,” Biden responded. “Look, it’s going to take time worldwide. In order to beat COVID, we have to shut it down worldwide. In the United States of America. We’re doing everything that needs to be done to take care of the American people within our borders.”

 

As Fox News reported, “Biden routinely promised on the campaign trail that he would ‘shut down’ the virus if elected. Biden regularly asserted that it was former President Trump’s ‘ineptitude’ that ‘caused the country to have to shut down in large part,’ and assured voters that his administration would take care of the pandemic more efficiently.”

However, more than 350,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since President Biden’s inauguration day – far more than the number under the Trump administration – and even Biden is warning that COVID-19 numbers are about to surge again.

“Experts say that COVID-19 cases will continue to rise in the weeks ahead this winter, and that we will see more omicron cases here in the United States in the days, weeks and months ahead,” Biden’s USA Today op-ed said. “I know that Americans are exhausted from COVID-19 and want to know when it will end, and the new variant is adding to that unease.”
