EXPOSED: New York Cuts Funding for Special Olympics, But Gives RAISES To Lawmakers

Cuomo and his ilk are everything wrong with America.

Lawmakers in New York have their heads on straight.

Wait. That doesn’t sound right.

This is the state that sent Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Bill de Blasio, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Kirsten Gillibrand and numerous other far-left radicals to elected office.

Therefore, it kind of makes sense that the Empire State would cut funding for the Special Olympics while giving raises to its representatives.

It’s not right, of course.

It just makes sense.

From Daily Wire:

Democrat-controlled New York is cutting funds to the Special Olympics and giving a raise to lawmakers a week after Democrats in Washington, D.C., expressed outrage after the Trump administration proposed cutting funds to the Special Olympics.

“New York’s budget for the Special Olympics decreased from $200,000 in 2018 to $150,000 for this year,” The Daily Caller reported. “Meanwhile, every one of the state’s 213 lawmakers will ultimately receive a raise that is almost the same amount cut from the games for disabled athletes.”

The budget, which was decided on Sunday, increases New York state lawmakers’ salaries from $79,500 to $110,000 and raises Governor Andrew Cuomo’s salary by $70,000, increasing it to $250,000.

Ain’t that something?

The exact amount cut from the Games will be given to 213 lawmakers. Funny how that worked out!

Cuomo and his ilk are everything wrong with America, at the moment. They’ll whine about income disparity, then chop up $50,000 and split it between themselves.

So hypocritical.

As a way to spite President Trump, Governor Cuomo, brother of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, granted pardons to nearly two dozen “undocumented immigrants” to prevent their deportations.

You have to write “undocumented immigrants” now because a certain social media platform might get upset if you use the two words you actually want to say. Read about it at this link.

From Fox News Insider:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday took a swipe at President Trump’s immigration policies as he granted clemency to 29 people, including some immigrants who were facing deportation.

According to reports, Cuomo (D) issued pardons to 22 immigrants who, because mainly of drug-related convictions, could have been deported or blocked from citizenship.

He also commuted the sentences of seven other individuals, including four for murder and three for armed robbery.

Cuomo: “While President Trump shuts down the federal government over his obsession with keeping immigrants out, New York stands strong in our support for immigrant communities. These actions will help keep immigrant families together and take a critical step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York.

Save conservative media!

Democrats and entitlement. Everyone deserves everything, even those who have broken the law to get into the United States. No free lunch to Democrats essentially means free everything. Bernie Sanders just can’t help himself. Free healthcare. Free college. What’s next? Free housing? Free computers? Free spring training tickets for baseball fans to boo the Houston Astros? Come on, man.

Would you like to pony up more of your hard earned dollars to take care of illegals? From Center for Immigration Studies: Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) made a big announcement recently and it has to do with Obamacare. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if…

Former Criminal Justice Adviser to Bernie Sanders Busted Plotting Jailbreak (Details)

I-R-O-N-I-C

If Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t shooting at a Republican Congressman or harassing conservatives, it appears they’re busy planning violent jailbreaks. Well, at least one of them was. Seems like a story straight out of Hollywood. But nope. This is real. A guy who once advised the 2020 Democrat Socialist presidential hopeful was caught doing something he definitely shouldn’t have been doing. From Free Beacon: A former adviser on criminal justice issues to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was plotting a violent prison escape, stashing guns and ammunition inside a soon-to-be-opened prison, authorities said this week. Nashville police said Wednesday that Alex Friedmann, a prison reform advocate who helped shape the Vermont senator’s criminal justice agenda, spent months plotting an escape for inmates of the city’s detention center. Sanders worked with Friedmann to develop positions on criminal justice in the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign—positions Sanders still touts. CONTINUED: Davidson County sheriff Daron Hall, at a press conference on Wednesday, said Friedmann hid at least three loaded guns upon breaking into the detention center in December. The break-in was part of “an extremely deliberate and, in my opinion, evil plan” Friedmann developed “over many months,” Hall said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koWRKwAX1_Y An undercover video caught a Sanders campaign staffer explaining that the Vermont senator is exactly who conservatives thought he was from day one. He is not a Democrat Socialist. He’s just a straight up socialist.

What if it meant the government completely took over healthcare? Would you be interested then!? Sanders seems to think “a lot of people” would absolutely love it. No joke. The 2020 presidential candidate actually said these words. It’s as if he thinks all Americans are ignorant simply because his followers are the sharpest knives in…
