New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s in boiling-hot water these days, facing more and more pressure to resign from people and outlets who were huge fans of his before the sexual harassment allegations began in earnest.
And, while it’s important that Cuomo be investigated for these allegations, it’s nonetheless extremely disappointing at best that this is what it took for his erstwhile defenders to start turning on him.
Just to be absolutely clear, the thing Cuomo should resign over is the nursing home deaths. Getting hundreds or thousands of people killed and then trying to cover it up is significantly worse than sexual harassment.

Perspective is key. No one is trying to minimize the seriousness of sexual harassment. But the fact remains that before we learned of the sexual harassment allegations, we knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that Andrew Cuomo was guilty of effectively condemning thousands of elderly New Yorkers to their deaths. That fact is not in dispute.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
