Cuomo Quits After Months of Resignation Reluctance

The people of New York will finally be able to get on with their lives.

Published

on

For weeks on end, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been defying the cooler heads of the Democratic Party, a vast majority of whom have forcefully suggested, that it’s time for him to resign.

Cuomo has been fraught with scandal of late, having never resolved an issue regarding his choice to send sick COVID patients into the state nursing home system early in the pandemic, and then having at least 11 women credibly accuse him of sexual harassment and abuse.

Now, with a number of criminal charges pending against the grabby governor over this uncouth behavior, the Empire State lawmaker has finally seen the writing on the wall. 

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced his resignation Tuesday over a barrage of sexual harassment allegations in a fall from grace a year after he was widely hailed nationally for his detailed daily briefings and leadership during some of the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

By turns defiant and chastened, the 63-year-old Democrat emphatically denied intentionally mistreating women and called the attacks on him politically motivated. But he said that fighting back in this “too hot” political climate would subject the state to months of turmoil.

The move was sudden, but Cuomo characterized the decision as what’s best for the state.

“The best way I can help now is if I step aside and let government get back to governing,” Cuomo said in a televised address.

His resignation will take effect in a few days, with his second-in-command taking charge after his departure.

Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a 62-year-old Democrat and former member of Congress from the Buffalo area, will become the state’s 57th governor and the first woman to hold the post. She tweeted that Cuomo’s resignation was “the right thing to do and in the best interest of New Yorkers.”

Cuomo’s resignation comes after previous defiance of the idea, which included pushing back against a suggestion to do so that came from President Joe Biden himself.

Paging Fox Mulder: Pentagon Could Open Permanent UFO Office in Coming Months

In yet another case of life imitating art, it appears as though we’re about to have out own government funded X-Files office.

Published

The truth is out there, and the Pentagon is ready to commit to searching for it full-time.

Over the course of the last several years, Americans have heard more from their government on the subject of UFO’s than ever before.  This is thanks to a number of well-documented sightings from within the military, and a massive glut of disclosure that was forced out of the CIA through an amendment to a COVID-19 relief bill.

Now, amid this rise in interest, the Pentagon is getting serious about the subject.

Tucked into the House of Representatives’ lengthy fiscal 2022 National Defense Authorization Act proposal lawmakers passed Thursday evening is a provision to form a permanent office under the Defense secretary, where officials would investigate government- and military-provided reports of unexplained sights in the sky.

That office would “carry out, on a department-wide basis, the mission currently performed by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force,” according to a less-than-five-page section in the House’s NDAA, which was put forth by Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., a Marine Corps combat veteran.

The office would work to standardize the way in which the DOD documents the phenomenon.

Specifically, officials within that hub would develop a means to synchronize and standardize the collection and analysis of such incidents across federal departments, search for links between these occurrences and foreign governments, evaluate how much of a threat the sightings pose, work with U.S. allies to assess the origins of UAPs and more, the text notes. Starting Dec. 31, 2022 and annually through 2026, the Defense secretary would be required to supply multiple Congressional committees with reports on such phenomenon. Among other topics, those materials would need to include analyses of relevant data collected through geospatial, signals and human intelligence, details of any notable patterns in sightings, and evaluations of health-related effects on people who encountered UAPs. Many of these recommendations were alluded to in that preliminary document from the task force.

Giuliani Jilted: Fox News Bans Rudy and Son from Appearing on Network

This, after Rudy was integral in bringing Fox News to the mainstream.

Published

on

In the latest bit of fallout from Donald Trump’s first term as President, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been banned by Fox News.

Giuliani, who served as the personal attorney for Donald Trump during much of his presidency, is currently in legal limbo, having lost his ability to practice law in New York while facing a rather sizable defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems.

Now, as many continue to wonder how much influence Trump will have on the future of the Republican Party, Giuliani has taken a major publicity hit.

Prior to a scheduled appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Sept. 11, “Fox & Friends Weekend” co-host Pete Hegseth apparently called the former New York City mayor the night before and apologized, telling him he had been canceled from their guest list.

The decision was particularly troubling for Rudy.

A source close to the former New York City mayor told Playbook that Giuliani was upset by the decision because he had “done a big favor” for Fox Corp. founder and Chairman Rupert Murdoch.

“He was instrumental in getting Fox on Time Warner so it could be watched in New York City,” the source told Playbook.

Giuliani’s son Andrew is also reportedly banned from the network, although no official reasoning has been given for either action.
