It has become obvious now that the SS Andrew Cuomo is sinking, and all that’s left to find out is whether or not the captain is looking to go down with the ship.

Cuomo faces horrid accusations of harassment and abuse of at least six women, with rumors beginning to swirl that there may be a great many more in the offing.

The news had Democrats scrambling for a few days, but the general consensus now appears to be that Cuomo has got to go. Instead, the grabby governor is digging his heels in.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday refused to resign amid mounting pressure from fellow Democrats for him to step down over sexual misconduct accusations leveled against him — with Cuomo lashing out at “reckless and dangerous” politicians he accused of not knowing all the facts.

“Women have a right to come forward and be heard and I encourage that fully. But I also want to be clear, there is still a question of the truth, I did not do what has been alleged. Period,” he said in a press conference.

His statement was unbelievably aggressive for a man in his position.

“I won’t speculate about people’s possible motives but I can tell you as a former attorney general who has gone through this situation many times, there are often many motivations for making an allegation and that is why you need to know the facts before you make decision,” he said.

He then addressed the slew of House Democrats from the New York delegation and at the state level who have called for him to resign.

“Politicians who don’t know a single fact but then form a conclusion and an opinion are in my opinion reckless and dangerous,” he said. “The people of New York should not have confidence in a politician who takes a position without knowing any facts or substance — that my friends is politics at its worst.”

Cuomo summed up his stance with of incredulous doubt sowing, stating that “a lot of people allege a lot of things for a lot of reasons”.

Kid Suicides, Mental Health Hospitalizations Surge Worse than Coronavirus During Lockdowns

Kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns.

New research has found that kids have had it particularly bad during the coronavirus lockdowns, but not because of the virus, because of the lockdowns themselves. Kids ended up dying of suicides and being hospitalized for mental health illnesses at a high rate, according to a new study. Once again, we see that this “cure” was far worse than virus ever was, especially for young people. Per Just the News: Jeanne Noble, director of COVID response in the UCSF emergency department, is finishing an academic manuscript on the mental health toll on kids from lockdown policies. She shared a presentation on its major points with Just the News. Suicides in the Golden State last year jumped by 24% for Californians under 18 but fell by 11% for adults, showing how children were uniquely affected by “profound social isolation and loss of essential social supports traditionally provided by in-person school,” the presentation says. Children requiring emergency mental health services jumped last year in Children’s Hospital of Oakland, and children’s hospitalizations for eating disorders more than doubled at UCSF Children’s Hospital. In January, the latter’s emergency department (ED) at Mission Bay hit a record for “highest proportion of suicidal children in ER” at 21%. The study authors charged that the CDC is bringing serious harm to children with its coronavirus policies. Just the News added that kids are facing more than the virus. They are also facing an “atrophy” of the interpersonal skills because of masks and lost school time, and they are suffering great bouts of depression. It is even harder on teens, especially those close to graduation, because they face a stymied start to college, or their careers. This also brings severe depression.

Michigan Politicians Use Coronavirus as Excuse to Give Themselves Big Pay Raise

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise.

Members of the Shiawassee County Board of Commissioners used the coronavirus crisis to give themselves a huge pay raise. Using federal COVID-19 relief funds, board members claimed they were using the funds as a way to give back to front line workers by giving those who have been dealing with the coronavirus a pay raise. But what the board didn’t tell anyone is that along with helping front-line workers, they gave themselves a $25,000 per member pay raise too. According to M-Live: Records obtained by MLive-The Flint Journal show “top-level administrators” in the county received $25,000 each from the COVID-19 relief funds awarded to the county while department heads each received $12,500. “Middle management” officials received $5,000 each while chief deputies, Health Department employees, and attorneys received $2,500. The breakdown written by County Coordinator Brian Boggs shows employees identified as “cleaning staff” received $2,000 each and all other employees received $1,000. “It’s a sad day … I feel badly,” said Commissioner Marlene Webster, a Republican who represents a portion of the city of Owosso. “It’s a blow to county workers’ morale at a time when it’s difficult to keep good workers … I think (it shows) a serious lack of acknowledgment of what people did (during the pandemic).” Webster, who voted in favor of the measure, claimed that she did not know she was voting for her own pay raise and said that she didn’t even know she was getting a pay raise until it showed up in her bank account. “I’m mortified. I never would have voted to give myself more than the average (employee) — if anything,” Webster said. On the other hand, several other members of the board blasted Webster for refusing the pay raise. Commissioner Cindy L. Garber and Jeremy R. Root said they had no…
