A damning — and revolting — report comes out about Andrew Cuomo. The New York State Assembly on Monday released a report on former Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-Groper)’s sexual harassment and coverup of COVID-19 deaths, and it’s abundantly clear now why Cuomo opted to resign rather than face impeachment proceedings that would almost certainly have led to his being ignominiously removed from office and driven from public life. The report details how Cuomo sexually harassed twelve women, seven of whom were on his staff, and covered up the real number of people who died from COVID in the nursing homes into which he had forced them, and it’s even more damning, and revolting, than Cuomo’s harshest critics might have expected. The report demonstrates that the report on COVID in the nursing homes that the Cuomo administration released last summer was “substantially revised by the Executive Chamber,” in order to make the governor’s actions appear to be much more innocuous than they really were. The fallen Leftist idol also downplayed and trivialized the sexual harassment allegations he faced; however, the scope of the scandal just keeps widening: the State Assembly’s report found another Cuomo accuser who was not included in New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ report last August.

“There’s Nothing More Frightening in America Today than an Angry White Man,” a CNN op-ed headline blared after the Rittenhouse verdict. And then Darrell Brooks, a black racist, career criminal, and convicted sex offender with two open felony cases, intentionally drove into the Waukesha Christmas Parade, leaving bloody children strewn like crumpled flowers. Baby strollers and battered wheelchairs lay on the street in the aftermath of this racist rampage. While the media tries to cover up his black racist,agendas. If a white racist had slammed his car into a black parade, there would be little doubt and less question about his motives. But black racists always get a pass by a media that’s happy to enable their racism. While white racism is denounced as disgraceful, black racism is embraced as revolutionary. Milwaukee BLM leader Vaun Mayes, who has appeared alongside local Democrat politicians, responded to the horrifying atrocity by suggesting, “It sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.” How better to start the Marxist revolution than by running down some Dancing Grannies? This is sick. But it is enabled by the collusion of well-meaning people who don’t want to acknowledge that blacks can be mass murderers and racist monsters just like everyone else.
The latest string of smash-and-grab attacks on high-end stores in California should not be called looting as that would be racist, two criminal justice experts told the media and police. The lecture on linguistics came after the San Francisco Bay area police departments had described a series of brazen thefts at luxury retail outlets over the weekend as looting. Lorenzo Boyd, a professor of criminal justice and community policing at the University of New Haven, told ABC7 news channel on Tuesday that the term has strong racial connotations and is typically used when “people of color or urban dwellers are doing something.” Boyd, a former deputy sheriff in Boston, went on to claim that when people of different ethnicity “do the exact same thing,” such criminal acts are rarely called looting. Martin Reynolds, co-executive director of the Robert C. Maynard Institute of Journalism Education, concurred, saying that it “seems like it’s an organized smash-and-grab robbery. This doesn’t seem like looting.” Both experts concluded that the media ought to be careful in their choice of words, as “people draw their own conclusions, if the terminologies that you use are tethered to people’s understanding of how they have been used in the past,” Reynolds opined.
Call it David – 0, Goliath – 2. Former OPP Commissioner Brad Blair has lost a second round in his fight against Doug Ford, with the Ontario Court of Appeal upholding the dismissal of his $5 million libel suit against the Premier. And not only that, but Blair must now pay Ford’s legal costs of $130,000 all at once rather than in two installments. Plus he’s on the hook for the Premier’s $30,000 legal bill for this loss as well. At Ontario’s highest court, Blair’s lawyer Julian Falconer had described his client as David to Ford’s Goliath. The three-judge panel didn’t see it that way. But first, some history. In 2018, Blair was angry when he was passed over for promotion as OPP commissioner and Ford’s buddy, Toronto Police Supt. Ron Taverner, was hired instead. The optics were certainly bad: The longtime family friend didn’t initially meet the requirements for the post but the job qualifications were lowered just before he was chosen. How convenient. Blair went nuclear and on Dec. 11, 2018, sent a scathing nine-page letter on official police letterhead to the provincial Ombudsman alleging improprieties in the selection process and requesting an independent review. He also released a copy to the public.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said during his throne speech that he will allow the provinces to ban handguns if they want to. Previously, the Trudeau government only allowed cities to ban handguns, according to the National Post. “Gun violence is on the rise in many of our biggest cities. While investing in prevention and supporting the work of law enforcement, we must also continue to strengthen gun control,” said the Governor General on behalf of Trudeau. “The government will now put forward measures like a mandatory buyback of banned assault-style weapons, and move forward with any province or territory that wants to ban handguns,” the speech added. During the previous election, Trudeau made firearms into a political wedge issue. The Conservatives argue that Trudeau’s firearm policies only harm law-abiding firearm owners. In their view, it will not tackle the source of the crime, which is illegal guns smuggled across the American border. Trudeau’s Public Safety Minister said that “we’ve seen too many innocent lives lost. And certainly, that is true in my hometown in Toronto and in many other parts of the country.”
The Biden Administration stands by seeking to bring an end to cash bail, arguing that whether or not to keep defendants in custody should be something determined by the danger the defendant poses to the community and not by their ability to pay bail. The White House is sticking by this policy goal at a time when the nation faces debates on bail policies — rising from the Waukesha, Wisconsin Christmas parade crash where 39-year-old Darrell Brooks Jr. allegedly rammed his vehicle through a group of innocent people who were taking part in the parade, Fox News reported. With a vast criminal history going back to 1999, and including several felonies, Brooks, a convicted sex offender, made bail twice in Wisconsin in 2021, even though he was wanted in Nevada for jumping bail on a sex crime charge, according to the outlet. Most recently, in early November, according to Fox, prosecutors in Milwaukee merely asked bail to be set for $1,000 for Brooks after he punched his girlfriend in the face and ran over her with his vehicle in a gas station’s parking lot. On afterthought, the prosecutors consider the bail to have been “inappropriately low,” the outlet reported.
