of up to $120M to help expand highway on the Gilcrease Expressway West Project. This will mean less congestion and faster routes to popular spots! @GovStitt

Schumer Defends Cuomo Ordering Nursing Homes to Accept Coronavirus Patients Despite Reversal

"I think the governor and [Mayor Bill de Blasio], frankly, have handled things very well," Schumer said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "We've been the epicenter of the crisis with so much going on and the issues of hospitals and nursing homes were very hard to manage. I think they managed it well."

Despite an increasing coronavirus death toll in New York nursing homes—over 5,500 nursing home residents have died from the virus in the state—Schumer said he supported Cuomo's handling of the issue.

"I think our governor has handled it well," Schumer said. "I don't have any dispute with what he has done."

Stacey Abrams went to a country store in Georgia and asked "how do I get to 285?"

The answer? "Diet and exercise."

Narciso

In the ukraine things are directed by judges the burisma case was opened and closed that way

Captain Hate

Schumer's such a two faced lying piece of shit excusing acts directly causing deaths;

Jane

I’m really excited about Trump’s deregulation. It wii help in so many ways we can’t imagine!

Narciso

You know even robin cook or the author of the verdict could be this cynical

In response to the nursing home deaths, Cuomo on Wednesday said, "We did everything we could."

"As a society, you can't save everyone. You're going to lose people, that's life," Cuomo said.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Few politicians can rise above the mediocrities caused by their insecurities that result in defending an obvious blunder.
Were Cuomo to just admit he had a lapse in judgment and take responsibility for it he could rise above the partisan stuff and appeal to most people who understand and forgive mistakes but not pols denying responsibility for them.
That Schumer defends him does not surprise, because even mediocrity is an aspiration far beyond that pygmy's grasp.

Narciso

They are just evil, in ways i couldnt have imagined death panels didnt suggest deliberate infection tbats the tuskegee (tedacted) experiment.

RIP, Kim/Ann

"I think our governor has handled it well," Schumer said. "I don't have any dispute with what he has done."

Of course he doesn't. The people who died don't vote, and don't donate money to politicians, so who gives a crap how many of them die, right?

lyle

Another JOMer we lost was Publius of Idaho or Phil Treat in real life.

I wonder if Susan Rice consulted anyone before sending herself that hatchetbrained email.
She might as well have paid for a billboard in big neon lights saying "Look at What We Did!"

Well they vote democrat but their ballot is premarked like buckley joked about his grandfather

--The people who died don't vote...--

Pretty sure that's not a motivation for any Dem in any blue state.

Crazy Bernie Sanders is not a fighter. He gives up too easy! The Dem establishment gets Alfred E. Newman (Mayor Pete) & @amyklobuchar to quit & endorse Sleepy Joe BEFORE Super Tuesday, & gets Pocahontas to stay in the race, taking thousands of votes from Bernie. He would have....

....beaten Sleepy Joe in a LANDSLIDE, every State, if these events didn’t happen. Even if Warren just dropped out, he would have easily won. Dems did it to him with Crooked Hillary and now, even more so...and Bernie doesn’t even complain. VOTE for Trump on TRADE, better than BS!

GUS: "PANIC gives them POWER."

Agree. That Spectator article well worth reading. There are caveats. And we have to explain horrific death counts in NY, Wuhan, Italy, Belgium ...
That said, if the death rate comes in anywhere close to normal flu the Dem governors will have a lot of explaining to do.
Because they definitely went into Full Panic mode

The Putz of New York is a few ants short of a picnic.

Buckeye

Medicaid is the primary provider of long-term nursing home care. This is a very big chunk of Medicaid expenditures which the states are responsible for managing.

The states get a block grant from the Feds. When the $$$ are gone, that’s it.

Who needs death panels when a Governor can simply issue an edict?

Sidwhite

To MMs above comment on maps, lady sidwhite suffers from directional indifference. She was a lifelong (50 yrs) Abilene, TX resident before our marriage 10 years ago. We both had homes, mine in San Antonio. When we were dating, she had OnStar service to her car. We married and made our home in SA. Based on her use of OnStar, she never actually knew where she was. I would listen to her plan a day at “running errands” and had to tell her that her plan involved driving a few hundred extra miles by going back and forth across the city. She listened to the computerized voice give directions and NEVER actually knew where she was or how she got there. Never observed landmarks or street/highway signs. Thankfully we sold the SA house and are living in the Abilene house so familiarity with this area means now OnStar only gets accessed when traveling.

JimSV re Statistics.

You put your finger on exactly what angers me about states (looking at YOU, VA & MD) that are "waiting" for the science to tell them when to remove their feet from our necks. If the standard is simple "infections" than all they have to do is add more tests et voila, more infections...

Use something undeniable like Hospital Admissions, or ICU Admissions, or Deaths, or whatever. But something a little less malleable would be helpful.

Obama knew that RICE was dishonest and would do his bidding. You don't have to be a genius to see that.

How many hoops has it taken to get to this point, inagine if ellsbergs had been successfully leaked (and ambellished) if mcgovern had been tagged with being a soviet agent, instead of being a mere useful idiot and this had gone on for four years

Obama and Rice scripted out their exit CYA words, written and oral, right to the last minute.

Sidwhite,

When I was a kid EVERYONE had to take geography several years. If I remember correctly, 4th grade, 6th grade and 8th grade.

I can remember getting mimeographed maps of each continent, where we had to locate and label all country capitals and major cities, bodies of water, and mountain rages, and then color the countries different colors. I think that is one of the reasons I became a geologist; they actually had an entire semester with a course called "Maps aaaand Aerial Photos."

My daughter had to have explained to her when she was an ADULT that the streets in Indianapolis were labeled based on how many blocks north you were of Washington Street, so that 54th street was 54 blocks (6.4 miles) north. No one had ever explained that to her! No geography in grade school, local or world.

I also still remember how thrilled I was in college when my curiosity as a child about why the continents of South America and Africa seemed to fit together like puzzle pieces was actually explained by the theory of Continental Drift.

I still love maps. Captain Hate yanked my chain, I guess. HA!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--It was written for JEFF Sessions’ eyes. And other dupes like him.

She didn't think Trump would see it or that it wouldn't find it's why out of the DOJ?
Seems unlikely to me.
It's an all purpose and pathetically transparent and desperate 'din't do nuttin' claim after you realize you did sumpin you can't make disappear.

I'm surprised there isn't an official GSA form; Official CYA Form for Departing Miscreants and Ne'er-Do-Wells From Federal Government Service.

Mrs H is incapable of visualizing two dimensions into three. Oddly enough she's very good at finding shortcuts in getting from point A to B within areas she's familiar with other than avoiding traffic lights.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Heh.

Threadkiller

She didn't think Trump would see it or that it wouldn't find it's why out of the DOJ?

She was on a team that had been pumped up by the Media, The DNC, The Uniparty, etc, as the smartest of the smart. They got away with the IRS scandal, Benghazi, killing Brian Terry, etc. They were batting 1000 as far as they were concerned.

They never took Trump seriously so no, no she didn’t ever expect him to get this far.

MissMarple2

TK,

Absolutely right. Some of them STILL don't believe that Trump is anything other than a reality-TV buffoon. Some of those threads on the Biden tapes had people posting like Tommy Vietor! I couldn't believe he showed up to trash talk the President!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

So if a "cuck" is a weak and servile man and a "cockalorum" is a self-important little man then a "cuckalorum" is a weak, servile, self-important, little man, right?
I looked it up and I was right cuz they had this guy's picture there;

although "little" might be a tad off.

Captain Hate

They never took Trump seriously so no, no she didn’t ever expect him to get this far.

I'm still trying to figure out if DJT would have made it this far if Admiral Rogers hadn't given him an early heads up. It's a moot point now and Trump's a pretty smart guy, but I'm thinking the Russian collusion was designed to be a kill shot within 2 years.

Threadkiller

Barry didn't think anyone would find out he was shitty at basketball.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--They never took Trump seriously so no, no she didn’t ever expect him to get this far.--

On January 20th he was already president so they knew he was getting somewhere.
They weren't batting 1.000. Their on base percentage was great but they couldn't drive in the winning run. The one biggest thing they had to do they failed completely at; stopping Trump, and so they did very much begin to take him seriously. It's not a coincidence that 3 days after his inauguration they were frightened enough to try and CTAes.
Batting champs don't write themselves e-mails.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Heh, again.

Threadkiller

Batting champs don't write themselves e-mails.

How long has that email been under wraps?

Maybe they get an asterisk for being roided-out batting champs. The email scheme worked just fine several seasons ago and kept them in glory for some time.

Captain Hate

Barry didn't think anyone would find out he was shitty at basketball.

The first time I saw a staged photo working out with the Tarholes I was confident I could destroy him. I loved when Barkley took idiot Kellogg to task for tanking a game of horse against Gaylord as a complete lack of pride and professionalism.

Extraneus

What's the point of a CYA email if no one sees it?

Threadkiller

Trump becomes President, Sessions sucks an egg, Paul Ryan benches Devin Nunes, Rosenstein facilitates a hoax, every department leaks nothing but bad news about the administration, Trump has to constantly fire top people that the uniparty placed in his administration, and so on.

The 2016-17 season went to Rice and her email.

Threadkiller

What's the point of a CYA email if no one sees it?

How do we know that no one saw it? I am of the opinion that people did see it at that time and it was enough to cause them to rationalize leaving Odummy and crew unscathed.

Tom R

She presumably wouldn't have written it if she didn't think it would get released, if the fit were to hit the shan, which it has.

The main reason for the Rice email was to protect Obama and to make Comey the #1 scapegoat for all of the criminal activity that the Obama officials committed. There is a reason that in sworn testimony under oath Comey's version of events conflict with McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Yates etc.

This goes back to the Jeckyll and Hyde point I made several days back. Prior to getting fired, almost all of Comey's actions can be viewed as pro-Trump. Post-firing his actions have been anti-Trump. Comey's post-firing actions are negatively affecting the objective analysis of his actions while Obama was still POTUS that put him at odds with the Obama criminal cabal.

Not many Trump supporters are willing to admit Comey's sworn testimony might be truthful. If you give him the benefit of the doubt and believe his version of events then it explains perfectly why Rice and the rest of the Obama criminal cabal are trying to make Comey the #1 scapegoat.

If you don't want to believe Comey is telling the truth, then that means you believe Rice's email was telling the truth which means Obama was not directly involved.

Captain Hate

There were enough things flying around in the enemedia for Levin to figure out Trump had been spied on strictly from published reports. In denying it Rice used the by the book misdirection early on.

Tom R

BTW all of Comey's post-firing anti-Trump actions have re-established his credibility among a LOT of non-Trump supporters. If the members of the Obama criminal cabal who he was at odds against are indicted, the chances of the jury considering Comey a credible witness for the prosecution are much higher now.

Captain Hate

Prior to getting fired, almost all of Comey's actions can be viewed as pro-Trump.

I hesitate to ask this but then why did he get fired?

Jane

According to Sally Yates, Susan Rice was not in the room when that conversation took place!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--How long has that email been under wraps?--

Not very long. It has been out and exposed since, at least Feb 2018.
It's only back in the news because the unredacted version is now out.

Extraneus

I am of the opinion that people did see it at that time and it was enough to cause them to rationalize leaving Odummy and crew unscathed.

Didn't everyone's eyebrows raise at the "by the book" reference? I'm pretty sure all of ours did.

Narciso

The unredacted part was the rest of the iceberg. Yadda yadda

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--I hesitate to ask this but then why did he get fired?--

--If the members of the Obama criminal cabal who he was at odds against are indicted, the chances of the jury considering Comey a credible witness for the prosecution are much higher now.--

Apparently he got fired so he could pretend to hate Trump to make himself more credible as a DC witness when the Obama cabal is on trial.
Cripes.

Captain Hate

We aren't talking criminal masterminds here, Ext.

Tom R

CH @ 1:02

Comey's firing was a milestone on the critical path. It had a positive direct impact on the state of affairs we are in today where the crimes of the Obama administration are coming to light just in time for the election.

Threadkiller

Not very long. It has been out and exposed since, at least Feb 2018.

And what became of it in Feb of 2018? Trump had been President since January 20th 2017. It must have spelled doom for Rice at that moment.

Threadkiller

Didn't everyone's eyebrows raise at the "by the book" reference? I'm pretty sure all of ours did.

Just like the eyebrows that raised when they were told very early on that the Steele dossier was found to lack credibility?

Tom R

Iggy @ 1:04

Rosenstein is the person who authorized the release of the Rice email to Grassley and Graham. RR could have easily covered up the existence of Rice's email and never released it to the Senate. I wonder why RR allowed it's existence to become public knowledge?

Extraneus

Sorry, I'm not sure what you're getting at, TK. Are you saying Trump, Nunes and company weren't suspicious of the Rice memo from the get-go? From what I remember, everyone was suspicious that it was a CYA smokescreen from day one.

Does anyone know who redacted Comey's paragraph? Mueller would have had a motive.

Narciso

No that was just his alien clone, hard to mix them up.

Threadkiller

Are you saying Trump, Nunes and company weren't suspicious of the Rice memo from the get-go? From what I remember, everyone was suspicious that it was a CYA smokescreen from day one.

I am saying that nobody but Sessions’ underlings knew about the email and they prevented “day one” from happening for several months until after Trump became president.

Porchlight

I am so sorry to hear about Kim (Ann). She was a beautiful happy warrior with a wonderful sense of humor. I always try to capitalize RUSH (Limbaugh) the way she did. My girls fight every day over who gets to use the RUSH insulated tumbler she sent them.

Rest in peace, friend.

Thank you, Janet and Stephanie, for letting us know.

lyle

Didn't everyone's eyebrows raise at the "by the book" reference? I'm pretty sure all of ours did.

But she wrote “by the book” three times in one email so you know everything was totes legit, right? 😉

Tom R

Iggy @ 1:11

You're a smart guy. In a hypothetical trial against members of the Obama criminal cabal, what are the chances of a couple of Democrats/Obama supporters do you think will be on the jury? refer to Roger Stone trial for evidence they will lie about their background to get on the jury.

Lets assume that the chances of getting convictions and jail time are close to zero due to the high probability of a leftwinger on the jury forcing a hung jury. At that point getting a conviction in the court of public opinion is the best we could hope for.

Don't you think the testimony of someone the American public perceives as anti-Trump will help to get a conviction in the court of public opinion?

MissMarple2

Here's another question: how long do you think Trump has been aware of/possessed those Biden tapes?

On one of them Biden says that if Borishevko doesn't get rid of that prosecutor he "fears for his personal safety?"

How about THEM apples?

And yesterday when Ric Grenell got to talk at the cabinet meeting he made a point of saying how thrilled the CURRENT intel people are that they will get to do straight intelligence, which led me to believe that perhaps there might be quite a few people in certain agencies who would be willing to be witnesses.

Tom R

Does anyone know who redacted Comey's paragraph?

The answer is likely whoever knew there was a criminal investigation in progress against the Obama administration. My guess is the emails were uncovered during the Horowitz IG investigation so RR was likely the person who redacted the Rice email.

Jim Eagle

Getting use to my new MacBook Air. Big difference in performance and features from my old 2013 version.

I am on the same longitude as Erie, PA here on the First Coast.

Extraneus

I was trying to remember how the memo was discovered. Grassley and Graham saw the classified version before 2/12/18.

Dear Ambassador Rice:

The Senate Judiciary Committee has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight of the FBI and the broader Department of Justice. Part of that duty involves ensuring that law enforcement efforts are conducted without improper political influence. Accordingly, the Committee has been investigating the FBI’s relationship with Christopher Steele during the time his work was funded by Hillary for America and the Democratic National Committee, as well as the FBI’s reliance on his unverified third-hand allegations in the Bureau’s representations to courts.

As part of that effort, the Committee sent a request to the National Archives for records of meetings between President Obama and then-FBI Director Comey regarding the FBI’s investigation of allegations of collusion between associates of Mr. Trump and the Russian government. In response, the Committee received classified and unclassified versions of an email you sent to yourself on January 20, 2017 – President Trump’s inauguration day. If the timestamp is correct, you sent this email to yourself at 12:15pm, presumably a very short time before you departed the White House for the last time.
