NY Il Duce Cuomo is responsible for 1000 deaths, but by all means let’s impeach a President who is no longer in office.

The Cuomo administration’s controversial directive for nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients amid the pandemic likely did lead to a spike in resident deaths, an analysis of its own data revealed Thursday. The study by the nonprofit Empire Center for Public Policy tied “several hundred and possibly more than 1,000” fatalities to the since-rescinded March 25, 2020, order that critics have blamed for spreading the coronavirus among vulnerable seniors. The analysis also suggests the controversial mandate is “associated with” more than one in six of 5,780 nursing deaths statewide between late March and early May.

A new study from renowned University of Hamburg researcher Roland Wiesendanger concludes the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the “cause” of COVID-19. The February study argues against two prevailing theories that COVID-19 was transmitted to humans either via a wet market or a lab accident.

Wiesendanger’s 105-page report continues, asking: “is the current global crisis actually the result of a coincidence in nature – a coincidental mutation of a coronavirus a bat with the assistance of an intermediate host – or the result of a Scientist carelessness when carrying out the project is high-risk research with global pandemic potential?” To answer the question, Wiesendanger cites 600 incontrovertible facts to bolster his theory that “the number and the quality of evidence clearly indicate a laboratory accident at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.” A summary of the report outlines the primary arguments in favor of Wiesendanger’s case, emphasizing the fact that the host has still not been identified; the virus can “couple surprisingly well to human cell receptors”; The Wuhan lab “carried out genetic manipulations on coronaviruses for many years with the aim of making them more contagious, dangerous and deadly for humans”; and that there were “significant safety deficiencies” at the facility:

It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Rush Limbaugh, a giant of American broadcasting, a uniquely talented performer, and a hugely generous man to whom I owe almost everything.

Rush died this morning, after a year-long struggle with lung cancer. I was scheduled to guest-host today’s show. Instead, as you can hear, his beloved Kathryn will be introducing a special program put together by the EIB team to celebrate a great man’s life and legacy. It’s a hard thing to do – compressing a glorious third-of-a-century into three hours – but Snerdley, Kraig, Mike, Allie and everyone else I’ve worked with there for so many years will do their best.

Usually, in this line of work, if you’re lucky, you get a moment – a year or two when you’re the in-thing – and you hope to hold enough of that moment as…

What are they so afraid of? Have you noticed that many of the restrictions placed on citizens are geared toward the very type of gatherings that are responsible for the least amount of COVID transmission? The utterly unconstitutional restrictions on religious gatherings is a prime example. Is there a risk involved in any public gathering? Of course there is. But when you cross the street there is a risk you might get hit by a bus. Does that mean you never cross the street? Bishops are starting push back against these megalomaniacal little Caesars and their drive to crush one of the most precious freedoms-freedom of worship. Enough is enough. Get your boot off our necks and stop abridging our most fundamental rights.

Washington D.C., Feb 18, 2021 CNA.- The bishop of Portland, Maine, is calling the state’s updated restrictions on religious services “unacceptable.” On Friday, Feb. 12, Gov. Janet Mills (D) issued a new executive order on public gatherings during the pandemic. Mills’ order changed restrictions on indoor religious gatherings from a limit of 50 people total to a limit of five people per 1,000 square feet of space. In response, the state’s only Catholic diocese continues to push for increased capacity in its churches. “This ruling, though sold as an ‘expansion,’ provides no real advance for the vast majority of the state,” said Bishop Robert Deeley of Portland in a statement provided to CNA. “It does nothing to provide relief to our parishes and parishioners,” he said, adding that the state’s Catholics are “perplexed and upset” by the new rules. Ultimately, fewer than ten churches in the state are expecting increased capacity due to this new ruling.

Shots Fired! Shots Fired! Quick, call a climate coach! Seriously, have all the sane people already moved out of California?

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) Board of Education approved a plan Tuesday to cut one-third of its police budget. The money will be diverted to fund new programs under the new Black Student Achievement Plan. The board voted to cut 133 police officers from the Los Angeles School Police Department, replacing the School District’s police officers with “climate coaches.” According to the plan, the ‘climate coaches’ are trained to implement “positive school culture and climate,” use “de-escalation strategies” to resolve conflict, understand and address “implicit bias,” and eliminate “racial disproportionately” in school discipline practices,” the Epoch Times reported. These cuts affect 70 sworn police officers and 62 non-sworn officers, ultimately reducing the districts police force budget from $77.5 million to $52.5 million. The Los Angeles Unified School District announced the approval of the Black Student Achievement Plan in a news release Tuesday.

Isn’t it heartwarming to know that when your taxes go up YOUR money will go to foreign aid such as this.

The Wuhan Institute of Virology is authorized to receive taxpayer funding for animal research until January 2024, the National Institute of Health told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The WIV is at the center of widespread speculation that COVID-19 could have entered the human population in China due to an accidental lab leak. Researchers at the lab were studying bat-based coronaviruses prior to the outbreak, a project partially backed by $600,000 in U.S. taxpayer funds routed to the lab through the nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance.

Since we live in what is virtually a one party state the Democrats have no one to focus their vitriolic hatred on other than each other. I have to confess that I do feel a guilty pleasure at watching the two most destructive and power mad politicians in the history of NY City and State verbally bludgeon each other. That may not be particularly Christian, but it is fun.

When Rush first began to get national attention I was already a regular listener to his program. I was a courier at the time and spent 12-15 hours a day behind the wheel of my car. I could always count on three of those hours flying by as I drove all over Long Island on my bank run. The intelligence and humor of Rush’s presentation was addicting but what really got my attention was his perspective on the news. At a time when there was no Fox News or Newsmax or OAN or Blaze or any of the Conservative outlets we have today, Rush launched talk radio into the spotlight of public awareness. And it drove the Liberals nuts. Their monopoly was broken and people began to drift away from blind acceptance of the drivel they were being spoon fed by the MSM, especially when it came to the Clintons and the Democrats.

Rush was a trailblazer and he was hated by the Left. He exposed their phony moral superiority for what it truly is-elitism and their phony compassion for a trap of perpetual victimhood to keep the votes coming. He asked questions the MSM would not ask and he did not care whos ox was being gored. Few people are truly irreplaceable in their chosen field but Rush was one of those people. I will miss him. Rest in Peace Rush.
