Cuomo Is Finally Under Investigation for All Those Deaths in New York Nursing Homes
[Townhall] Democratic leaders in the New York State Senate are moving to strip Gov. Cuomo (D-NY) of his emergency powers. The move follows news that a federal investigation is currently looking into the governor's coronavirus task force and its abandoned policy of sending covid-infected patients into state nursing homes.

The probe by the U.S. attorney's office in the Eastern District of New York is reportedly in its early stages and focused, at least in part, on the actions of the governor's task force in regards to coronavirus deaths in New York's elderly care facilities, the Times Union reported.

"I have said from the beginning that this is more than a nursing home scandal, this is a criminal coverup corruption scandal at the highest levels of New York State government," Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) said in a statement.

An aide for Gov. Cuomo admitted last week that the Cuomo administration withheld data regarding deaths in New York nursing homes from state lawmakers because the governor's administration purportedly feared how the Trump White House might use such data against the state.

Rep. Stefanik called the probe "an important first step toward justice and accountability for all New Yorkers" and said subsequent action was needed by the state legislature.

"In light of this news, the New York State Legislature must immediately revoke the Governor's emergency powers," the lawmaker wrote. "The State Senate and Assembly should immediately issue subpoenas to the Governor and his senior staff."

U.S. attorney, FBI investigating Cuomo's handling of nursing home deaths
h/t Instapundit
[NBC News] - The U.S. attorney in Brooklyn and the FBI have begun a preliminary investigation into the way New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s administration handled data about Covid-19 nursing home deaths.

After early praise for his leadership when his state became the U.S. epicenter of the pandemic, the governor is now dealing with accusations of underreporting nursing home deaths.

In recent weeks, the administration revealed that 15,000 long-term care residents have died, up from the 8,500 previously disclosed.

House Holds Hearing on Reparations as Biden Calls for Americans to Combat 'Systemic Racism'
[Western Journal] Members of the House of Representatives held a hearing Wednesday to consider legislation that would establish a commission to make proposals for reparations to be paid to African-Americans and decide whether a national apology for slavery should be issued.

The hearing before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties comes as President Joe Biden has said multiple times since his inauguration that the United States is systemically racist.

"I think we have to deal with systemic racism that exists throughout society," Biden said at a CNN town hall Tuesday night.

Further, on Sunday, Biden signed an executive order focused in part on combating the "scourge of systemic racism" and the "profound polarization" in the U.S.

Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, the primary sponsor of H.R. 40, made clear the reparations commission the bill would create is not merely to engage in an academic exercise.

Golly. Someone is into process over product. This is to keep African-Americans on the plantation, being very careful not to jeopardize the possibility of future benefits flowing their way.

Because if they meant to actually do it, they’d simultaneously pass the same bill by a bare majority in the House and Senate one morning, reconcile it in the afternoon, pass the reconciled thing the following morning, and have it to President Biden’s desk for his signature promptly at noon on the second day.

Joe Biden Not Expected to Make a Statement on Rush Limbaugh's Passing
[PJ] Joe Biden’s Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked point-blank about whether Joe Biden would release any sort of statement about the death of Rush Limbaugh, and she didn’t have to circle back to it.

"I can say — I’m not sure if we’ll release a statement from the President. He has spoken to — in the past, to Rush Limbaugh’s sickness and illness at the time. And certainly, you know, he — his condolences go out to the family and the friends of Rush Limbaugh, who have — of course — have lost him today," she said.

Democratic bill would create public registry of gun owners, their guns, and where they keep them
[Blaxe] A Democratic bill introduced in the House of Representatives this year aims to create a mandatory and publicly accessible registry listing the names of gun owners, how many guns they have, and even where they keep their firearms.

Additionally, the bill, H.R. 127, would ban several types of commonly used ammunition .50 caliber or greater, require gun owners to purchase firearm insurance costing $800 per year, and force those seeking to buy a gun to complete a psychological evaluation and a government training course prior to the purchase.

Should gun owners fail to adhere to the new restrictions, they could face an harsh penalty of 10 years in prison and fines of $50,000 to $150,000.

Sponsored by Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (Texas), the bill is one of the most aggressive attempts yet by progressive lawmakers to curb Americans' Second Amendment rights and is already drawing intense scrutiny from gun rights groups.

"All gun control bills share the same basic goal: a world in which fewer people own firearms," the National Rifle Association wrote about the legislation. "Some bills simply ban certain types of firearms or ammunition outright. Others place obstacles in the path of owning firearms or ammunition to make them more difficult and expensive to obtain, thereby shrinking the market for them ... H.R. 127 combines both failed approaches."

"It bans common types of ammunition and original equipment magazines for most self-defense firearms. And, it makes all firearms more difficult to obtain and possess through a punitive licensing and registration scheme," the group continued.

Biden to Sell Stimulus Bill to Congress As Soon As Stimulus Bill Passed
[WashingtonExaminer] The White House is postponing plans for President Biden to address a joint session of Congress to unveil the second phase of a coronavirus recovery plan as it continues to work on a massive relief bill.

Last month, Biden said he would appear before Congress in February to set out his "Build Back Better" recovery plan.

But on Tuesday, when asked about the timing, his press secretary Jen Psaki said there had never been a plan for him to address a joint session this month.

"We don't know where the Feb. 23 date came from. It's a great mystery," she said during the regular daily briefing.

"I've not Nancy Drewed that one out today, but it was never planned to be in February, and we don't have a date for a joint session at this point," Psaki said....

Last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the address would have to wait for the COVID-19 legislation to pass.

"We won't be doing any of that until we pass our COVID bill. That's the first order of business," the California Democrat told reporters at a news conference.
Every time Biden talks for more than a few minutes is a gamble for the Dems.

Trump Impeachment Attorney Canceled by Law School, Civil Rights Law Group
[EpochTimes] An attorney who represented President Donald Trump during the recent impeachment trial says a law school canceled a civil rights law course he was going to teach and he was suspended from a civil rights lawyer email discussion list.

“I was hoping to teach a civil rights course at a law school in the fall. We’ve been in talks about it, kind of planning it out. I wrote to them and I said, ‘I want you to know, I’m gonna be representing Donald Trump in the impeachment case. I don’t know if that impacts on your decision at all,’” David Schoen, one of the three attorneys who argued before the Senate, told The Epoch Times.

“And they said, you know, they appreciated my writing and, frankly, it would make some students and faculty uncomfortable, so I couldn’t do it.”

Schoen, an Alabama-based lawyer recognized for his civil rights litigation, declined to name the school that canceled his course. He likewise declined to name the legal organization behind the email list that suspended him.

“They actually spent 48 hours discussing this with their board and so on. And they decided that they needed to suspend me from the list,” Schoen said. “It’s a very important one to me. It’s very prominent civil rights lawyers and fine people.”

Schoen delivered an impassioned argument on the first day of the trial for why the Senate didn’t have jurisdiction to try a former president. At the conclusion of his remarks, he appeared to be choking back tears as he read an 1849 poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow titled “The Building of the Ship.” Schoen told The Epoch Times that he chose the poem—and the quote from President Abraham Lincoln that preceded it—because he views the days of Lincoln as the closest parallel to the current division in the United States.

Schoen isn’t the only attorney facing repercussions for defending the president.

Attorney Michael van der Veen said vandals broke the windows in his home and defaced the house with graffiti. Van der Veen has had to move his children to a secret location and hire armed guards to protect his home and workplace.

Schoen said that he’s used to threats after decades of practicing civil rights law.

“When I lived in Alabama, I lived behind an electric fence with two German shepherds and I had to carry a gun every place I went. I faced many threats for different kinds of reasons, over the years. But if you let that stop you, I suppose you’re in the wrong business,” Schoen said.
No melting snowflake, he.
During the trial, Schoen spoke to Trump two or three times per day. He said the president was always "very gracious," "very supportive," and "very much appreciated the presentations I made."

#1  law school canceled a civil rights law course he was going to teach

Bad, but (not necessarily) the same as having an existing course suspended.

#3  There's a lot to be said about Trump's defense lawyers, but this is of course stupid.

"It would make some students and faculty uncomfortable."

Law school isn't supposed to be comfortable. Law is rough and ugly, and if you want to be a good lawyer, you better face reality sooner than later.

#4  “When I lived in Alabama..... I had to carry a gun every place I went.

Appears some precautionary measures pay off. He's with us today to tell us about it.

#5  Does anyone else see the Irony of being banned from a civil rights class and mailing list for this? They are literally trying to deny someone (Trump) their civil rights with this kind of imtimidation.

I guess some people get more civil rights than others.

#8  You have a Constitutional right to have a lawyer (if you can get one.) Lawyers do not have a Constitutional right to continued employment if they represent you.

#9  Forget liberal Arts colleges. They are dying out fast. 50% they say by year 2025. Conservative colleges however are thriving.
