1. WSJ: Another Cuomo Cover-Up?

New York’s governor did to the disabled the same thing he did to the elderly.

At last, Joe Biden, Anthony Fauci and CNN are no longer presenting New York Democrat Andrew Cuomo as the model governor in pandemic response.
2. The question now is how many lives were lost due to Gov. Cuomo's reckless policy of forcing vulnerable populations to accept greater risk of infection—and then hiding the results. Nursing homes were not the only places forced to accept Covid-positive patients.
3. Maria McFadden Maffucci writes at National Review: “Cuomo’s edicts put another vulnerable population in inexcusable peril: New Yorkers with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) living in group homes.”
4. You know that notorious March 25 order, sending Covid+ patients back to nursing homes from hospitals? It had a twin. An April 10 memo from the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) to operators of certified residential facilities had identical language.
5. Guess how that worked out for disabled New Yorkers. As is Cuomo custom, the state government withheld crucial information from public disclosure. Therefore scientists and policy makers had to try to make sense of limited data.
6. The available data told another highly disturbing story. Last year a study in Disability and Health Journal titled “COVID-19 outcomes among people with intellectual and developmental disabilities living in residential homes in New York state” reported some dismal statistics.
7. For people with IDD living in residential group homes:

Case rates – 7,841 per 100,000 vs. 1,910 for NY State

Case-fatality – 15.0% vs. 7.9% for New York State

Mortality rate – 1,175 per 100,000 vs. 151 per 100,000 for NY State

The End

'The Lincoln Project" Scam Exposed

Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald), a true journalist, details the corruption infested outfit and its enablers.
"They [The Lincoln Project founders] opportunistically identified the optimal Trump-era profit model: namely, relentlessly fleece scared and gullible #Resistance liberals of their cash by posturing as brave and principled warriors against Trumpism."
"But their lucrative scheme could never have succeeded without the knowingly fraudulent cooperation of liberal networks such as MSNBC and CNN."

Chittorgarh, India

The massive Chittor Fort, also known as the Chittorgarh, in India is a legendary UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fort, which is roughly in the shape of a fish, has a circumference of 8 miles with a maximum length of 3 miles and it covers an area of 700 acres.
Chittor Fort, India

It was sacked three times by Muslim Attackers -- in 1303 by Alauddin Khalji, then again in 1535 by Bahadur Shah, and lastly by Mughal king Akbar in 1568, and its Hindu Rajput rulers fought fiercely to maintain their independence. ...
On all three occasions when faced with a certain defeat, the men fought to death while the women committed suicide by jauhar (mass self-immolation) rather than be captured, raped, and enslaved by the conquerors. Bollywood made a movie about it in 2018 called "Padmaavat."

A cop kills an unarmed protester in cold blood on video and we don't even know the name of the cop, nor have there been any outcries of 'police brutality' because the cop was defending members of Congress. Yet the Democrats say the cops who defend the public need to be defunded.
Have the friends & family of the protester who was shot dead by a cop at point-blank range not shed any tears worthy of news media coverage? Is every news media outlet in the country of the singular opinion that the protester deserved to be shot dead? What has the media become?
A shooting death in the halls of Congress in plain view of the world cannot, must not, remain a murder mystery. The nation needs to be given a full and complete debriefing on the investigation of the case. This must not be swept under the rug as a politically motivated coverup.

'Fire extinguisher to the head' story has now been withdrawn. There was plenty of wrong done that day, without exaggeration. But the fact that Democrats had to manufacture exaggerations to embellish their narrative speaks volumes about how disingenuously exploitative they are.
The most intriguing aspect of the narrative that "insurrectionists killed a young cop by hitting his head with a fire extinguisher" should not be that it was a complete lie but who invented it and how did the completely fabricated imagery of 'extinguisher to the head' come about?
It is now clear that the media and the Democrats were disappointed in the scope of actual injuries and casualties, bad as they were, so they went looking for deaths they could link back to Capitol events, no matter how tangentially.
