We Are Now Amidst a Scamdemic

Imagine leaning into the idea of a 4 million dollar profit as your state is in the grips of the worst pandemic anyone on this Earth has seen since 1918.

The New York Times , THE TIMES, has the most damning headline I’ve seen since the news of under-reporting started to break . It reads ‘AS CUOMO SOUGHT $4 MILLION BOOK DEAL, AIDES HID DAMAGING DEATH TOLL’. I have written here on this blog before that this is even worse than the Nixon cover-up because those were just tapes, these are DEATHS that have been hidden! Criminality I have to believe. For more on the Times article take a look here, https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/nyregion/cuomo-book-nursing-homes.html

I implore those that truly love Cuomo to this to day to adapt to the idea that once summer hit, NYS went from being in a pandemic to a scamdemic, and the Governor smiled and laughed all the while.

He VISITED other places like Atlanta when he told us all to stay in our homes , dare I say basements. That was a warning sign to me that he really even stopped taking COVID-19 as serious.

He’s not the only one that I feel has scammed us as a nation. I at one point considered welcoming wheelchair-bound NC Congressman Madison Cawthorn because of his comeback story of surviving a major car crash and becoming a Republican US Congressman .

Until I found out he falsified the circumstances around his 2014 crash in a speech at his Christian college. Cawthorn painted himself to have been left for dead after the paralyzing car crash by his friend, Bradley Ledford. Ledford then told his side of the story which had shown Rep. Cawthorn to be Dishonest . Yet, imagine describing a bold faced lie as a harrowing story right into being elected to Represent in Washington , D.C.

Lying about the situation which caused someone to adapt should be called out and held accountable.

It’s one thing to scam your way into government funding by lying about disability, but to intentionally mislead about the circumstances of a disability FOR VOTES is hurtful to those who have to adapt every day to thrive in this world being disabled! Way to be part of the scamdemic, Rep. Cawthorn!

Being a New Yorker the impetus to write this certainly includes Governor Cuomo and the Cuomo cover-up! However, in Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz has found himself in hot water! I feel he too has scammed his constituents into believing he is this hard-working family man.

For a 30+ year old man to be proudly stating he’s been a church-goer to be even entertaining idea of palling around with a 17 yr old is quite alarming. Thankfully this had not happened while with his fiancée . However, by not showing any kind of discipline with this relationship, his behavior contributes to the scamdemic of leaders not doing as they say.

Albeit, personal lives are never going to be an issue on the ballot and these lives of public figures will take their course as they may. I do think Cuomo policy of re-stating nursing home patients with COVID is a huge story that this Gaetz saga will now kick to the side, and that’s not right either!

In all of these examples, for us the average citizen and busy voter/taxpayer, we must find a way out of this scamdemic and I think the best way is to ALWAYS ASK QUESTIONS!

The Underreported Injustices Of Pandemic 2020

While I thank God I have made it a year in a pandemic, I really would be feeling God’s work was honored if nursing home deaths were held accountable.

We can all pat ourselves on the back for surviving a year, or we can fight for justice for the families of loved ones that were killed due to heinous policy.

When NYS Attorney General Letitia James released her findings on Governor Cuomo’s March 24th, 2020 directive to put COVID positive patients back into nursing homes, the Governor’s bright lights started to dim into the accusations of sexual assault. Yet, let’s not forget the AP and others reporting nearly 20k underreported nursing home deaths in New York State! The Cuomo cover – up is worse than Nixon in that it hid DEATH! This is a criminal offense and obstruction that has eyes at the FBI and DOJ investigating right now!

The other underreported injustice is the fight to be free from domestic abuses amidst the lockdown. According to the IndexJournal reporting, the CDC, the very agency telling us how important and safe lockdowns would be, also reported that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced domestic abuse . (IndexJournal). This disturbing trend has to come to light. I read stories of pizza places becoming safe havens for the abused in their communities . Why would the CDC make citizens live in fear not just from a pandemic but from those who live right in the same house? Why didn’t this get much attention?!

Let’s also talk about how this year of pandemic led to many horrific cases of people contemplating suicide. According to the Washington Post, 1 in 4 young adults had at one point seriously considered suicide . (Washington Post) As far as actual suicide deaths a a result of the lockdown, numbers aren’t as prevalent . Yet, for the stories of those who have taken their lives during this time, their families must be recognized and cared for!

How could these government leaders not know putting COVID positive patients in nursing homes lead to deaths ? Oh wait they definitely did and criminally cooked the books as not to be tweeted by then-President Trump, are you kidding me? By the same token, how could the CDC not work harder to combat the affects of the lockdowns they mandated on this country ?

After the horrible death of George Floyd, fighting for justice is what 2020 ended up being about. The rallying cries of ‘no justice , no peace’ rang out and then riots broke out.

No riots, no protests for the families that lost loved ones in the nursing home disaster just because the media LOVED CUOMO. Let’s protest affects of these COVID policies which also led to injustice!

Raising Taxes WON’T Kill the Debt!

In 2016, I was against the 33,000 deleted e-mails because I believe Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal in fact dealt with impact of four American soldiers’ lives and their families killed by terrorists in Benghazi. The e-mail scandal of Hunter Biden isn’t my focus this time around. I am feeling the policy research more-so four years later, maybe a sign of maturity?

We now have PROOF Biden would like to tax the hell out of Americans. According to the Washington Examiner, the Tax Policy Center has concluded that Joe Biden’s tax plan would be added up to two trillion dollars in taxes. (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/biden-plan-would-hike-taxes-2-4-trillion-over-a-decade-socking-it-to-corporations-and-the-wealthy-analysis-finds) Paul Bedard, also of the DC Examiner , notes the James Madison Institute found Biden’s plan to cost $36 TRILLION, 3 trillion alone by eliminating President Trump’s tax cuts! (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/bidens-agenda-to-cost-36-trillion-up-to-49-000-per-family-study)

While that is a BIG jump, my first question about these proposal studies deal with debt. We have a climbing debt that is between 22 and 23 trillion dollars. Does Joe Biden ‘s plan mean he wants to lower the debt by taxing us or simply use the Office of the President to tax us as much as possible? I don’t believe you can kill the debt by taxing Americans, especially amidst a business-killing pandemic!

I believe paying taxes is essential to the American way, but not collectively paying trillions of dollars to the government if it comes off as the government just wanting our money to fund programs the average American may not want to support. Secondly, to try and impose this plan on hard-working business owners would outright SINK the small businesses barely surviving and kill the entrepreneurial spirit DESPERATELY needed to combat the unemployment, business closures and even depression/suicide rates that are riddling America right now.

I find it incredible the Dems’ always obsess about taxing its own people, but never want to ask allies to pay their fair share. As I am writing this, it hits me. Other countries are so much more important to be allies with than be allies with the American people! I’m also not advocating let’s completely ruin our relationships we need to have across the world. However, that is the way we kill the debt, by not taking on OTHER people’s paychecks just because we are America.

I do find it amazing, the same people that say tax the one percent and take money from wealthy Americans are the ones forgiving fraudulent medicaid, social security, and even welfare transactions. They also applaud giving out stimulus after stimulus, because they also lick their chops ready to take it back through exorbitant taxes. We MUST not let the Government make us independent on them for income the rest of our lives!

Yes we are a gateway for everyone, at home and globally. We must start by asking our politicians to remember the best gateway to keep America strong is through American towns and cities that are the lifeblood of the country, that allow us to hand out money to our allies in need. The minute you ask for more to deplete the lifeblood is the minute we truly are weakened from the inside!
