MURDOCK: New York Democrats Gang up on Governor Granny-Killer

NEW YORK — New York politicians are hovering ravenously over Andrew Cuomo, like vultures circling a mortally wounded stallion. Mocked as Governor Granny-killer, Cuomo’s fellow Democrats attack him for covering up the needless China-virus deaths of fragile seniors.

Cuomo created the toxic disaster that could send him to Sing Sing:

Last March 25, Cuomo’s Department of Health ordered nursing homes (NH) as follows: “No resident shall be denied re-admission or admission to the NH solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”

Despite relentless pleas for China-virus tests, Cuomo further mandated that day: “NHs are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.”

Cuomo waited until April 30 — Day 48 of this national emergency — to ban COVID-19-positive personnel from nursing homes.

No lack of hospital capacity explains Cuomo’s edict, even after nursing-home administrators visualized body bags. The Corona-positive elderly could have quarantined in Samaritan Purses’ 68-bed field hospital in Central Park as early as March 28. The 1,000-bed USNS Comfort medical ship and the Javits Convention Center’s 2,910-bed pop-up hospital, both supplied by President Donald J. Trump, opened March 30. 

Long before Cuomo unplugged his deadly decree on May 10, these underused facilities could have treated seniors until they either yielded to or overcame COVID-19. After a fortnight, those no longer contagious could have entered nursing homes without endangering others.

But that made too much sense. So, as these seniors teemed with lethal microbes, Cuomo forced them straight into eldercare facilities. No surprise, COVID-negative residents contracted the virus and perished.

According to Cuomo, these deaths totaled 8,711.

But this number was a lie.

The Associated Press surmised in May that Cuomo’s underreporting whitewashed the devastation of his nursing-home diktat. Cuomo’s fellow Democrats recently confirmed this fact and now target the catastrophically inept governor.

Democrat Attorney General Letitia James swooped down on January 28 and took the first bite out of Cuomo’s hide. Her 76-page report concluded that Cuomo’s nursing-home data “may have been undercounted by as much as 50 percent.”

Cuomo’s death toll excluded seniors who left nursing homes and expired at medical centers. These bogus “hospital fatalities” did not bloody Cuomo’s hands.

Soon after James’ devastating findings, Cuomo’s Health Department finally uncooked the books: COVID-related nursing-home deaths through January 19 totaled 12,743. That’s 46.3 percent higher than the 8,711 that Cuomo previously claimed. 

Team Cuomo also confessed that the 6,327 COVID-19-positive seniors whom they steered from hospitals into eldercare centers excluded 2,729 “readmissions” of infected patients returned to the facilities from whence they came. This tally of 9,056 such individuals is 43.1 percent higher than Cuomo’s phony figure. 

Who cares?” the ice-hearted Cuomo said January 29th. “Died in a hospital. Died in a nursing home. They died.”

As the New York Post reported, Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa told Democrat state lawmakers on a February 10 conference call that Team Cuomo concealed nursing-home deaths because they might reach the Justice Department and “be used against us…”

DeRosa’s smoking-gun sent the buzzards hovering over Gotham and Albany.

State Senator Jessica Ramos (D – Queens) wrote via Twitter that Cuomo’s “emergency powers must be rescinded, he & his admin must be subpoenaed, and a full investigation must result in justice for our grieving families.”

Nine Democrat State Assembly members demanded Tuesday that Cuomo lose his emergency powers to rule by fiat during the COVID crisis. “It is now unambiguously clear that this governor has engaged in an intentional obstruction of justice, as outlined in Title 18, Chapter 73 of the United States Code,” the lawmakers wrote their colleagues. “This is a necessary first step in beginning to right the criminal wrongs of this Governor and his administration.”

Andrew Cuomo immediately should apologize to the families and loved ones of the thousands of seniors whom his utterly boneheaded decisions needlessly exposed to COVID-19. Next, he should resign and be handcuffed.

You’re kidding, right? Most of the Rinos in Congress are terrified of the media. And as far as anything happening to Cuomo~~ Hillary has broken law after law and nothing has been done to stop her crime spree. I am a registered Republican but I’m sick to death of the yellow-bellied, lily-livered, spineless Republicans in Congress!

What else would one expect from a wannabe show person? No matter who else or how many others may fall because of it, this guy will do anything to put on a good show. After all, you gotta put on a good show in order to get Emmys, right?? What a disgrace he is and has always been and I pray this will be the end of Cuomo’s superficial show!!!

He needs to go. Take away his Emmy and lock him up for murder. I often wonder why Sandra Lee hooked up with this creepy man. Maybe she was desperate and wondering if he ever beat her…hmmm…this guy is a psychopath and a danger to society.

An arrogant SOB. I will never forget him on TV screaming that he needed thousands of ventilators and blaming everyone else that they were not immediately available! What a creep. Let’s hope the people of New York start electing some Republicans so that there can be some balance in that state.

Why. on earth would he admit to this now? Demon rats who should die of shame for doing everything from men prancing around in little girlie dresses, to shoving the uncivilized illegals down the throats of working class people to cop with with in a 1000 different of obnoxious ways and now killing the elderly and practically bragging about it. They are godless bunch of garbage.

Governor Cuomo is either a “mass murderer or a mass manslaughter killer, for he has to be one or the other, period”???? If he does not go to jail before the 2022 election and the CHEATER criminal Democrat Party Mob leadership tries to cover it up, their political party will be destroyed in the 2022 and 2024 elections, period!!!Has their political party declared “OPEN HUNTING SEASON ON THE ELDERLY WITH THE CORONA VIRUS will be the election battle cry!!!!

New York used to be a fun place to visit with their restaurants and Broadway plays, especially under Mayor Rudy Giuliani. New York was a safe place when you could walk to a restaurant, subway, or just go to the downtown markets. Now, there have been so many lockdowns and persecution of businesses, running them to of town, and other wealthy people re-locating, it doesn’t look like the same place. (Look at the tax base they lost.). Don’t tell me that the governor didn’t know the virus was transmittable and fatal to alot of elderly people in nursing homes, probably thousands.
