    by Casey Harper   Republicans on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis and the House Oversight Committee have joined forces in an investigation over the thousands of nursing home deaths in New York state during COVID, saying New York Democrats ignored previous inquiries. The controversy began in 2020 when thousands of New York nursing home residents died during the pandemic, drawing extra scrutiny to then-Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s policy of sending elderly patients recovering from COVID-19 into nursing homes. Afterward, Cuomo came under fire over allegations that he intentionally hid nursing home deaths. New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli released an audit earlier this year saying New York’s Health Department “failed to account for more than approximately 4,100 lives in nursing homes due to COVID-19.” “While the Department’s duty is to act solely to promote public health, we determined that, rather than providing accurate and reliable information during a public health emergency, the Department instead conformed its presentation to the Executive’s narrative, often presenting data in a manner that misled the public,” the audit said. Lawmakers sent a letter...
    DiNapoli said in a statement, "The pandemic was devastating and deadly for New Yorkers living in nursing homes. Families have a right to know if their loved one’s COVID-19 death was counted, but many still don’t have answers from the state Department of Health." "Our audit findings are extremely troubling," DiNapoli said. "The public was misled by those at the highest level of state government through distortion and suppression of the facts when New Yorkers deserved the truth." The report found that the New York Department of Health failed to meet federal directives to inspect for infection control problems, reporting on only 20% of facilities between March and May 2020 – compared to over 90% for other states. Cuomo's spokesperson – Rich Azzopardi – tried to discredit the audit. "As the number of out of facility deaths were reported last January this is not news, however what is peculiar is the Comptroller's release of this audit now — but no one has ever accused him of being above politics," Azzopardi said. New York State Attorney General Letitia James said...
    Republican Texas Rep. Chip Roy and Republican Florida Rep. Bill Posey sent a Thursday letter to White House senior medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), calling for answers from his sworn congressional testimony about taxpayer-funded gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The Daily Caller first obtained the letter, a follow-up from a letter they sent July 28. In it, they call for details about U.S. funding for gain-of-function research at WIV. Fauci stated under oath in May 2021 testimony the NIH has never funded gain-of-function research in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. “As it grows more and more obvious that he has misled the American public about what research occurred at the lab in Wuhan, Dr. Fauci has missed the deadline to provide us with information. But these questions aren’t going away. The American people deserve answers and I won’t stop until they get them,” Roy told the Daily Caller.  (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Reps Comer, Jordan Demand Fauci To Explain Possible ‘Discrepancy’ In Sworn Congressional Testimony) The new letter...
    President Biden addressed the nation Thursday night and made some claims that weren't entirely true.  In his speech, Biden claimed that Covid-19 has taken more American lives 'than World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War and 9/11 combined.' According to the CDC, 527,726 Americans have so far died from coronavirus - a number that is less than the 580,000 lives lost during the events mentioned by Biden.  Throughout the 24 minute address, Biden touted his administration's vaccine rollout and made misleading claims of the timeliness of Trump's response to the virus and the number of vaccines the former president's administration ordered.  Biden gave his first prime time address on Thursday night, declaring that all American adults would be able to have their first vaccine dose by May 1  According to the CDC, 527,726 Americans have so far died from coronavirus - a number than is less than the 580,000 lives lost during the events mentioned 'As of now, total deaths in America, 527,726.

    During the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump and White House medical officials, including the nation’s top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci, gave the same “expectations” about COVID-19 “that we’re reading now in the Woodward book that everybody is so surprised about,” The Hill's media reporter Joe Concha told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday. Concha made the point, citing quotes from Trump and members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force in March and April, in response to newly released audio of President Trump telling The Washington Post's Bob Woodward in February that the coronavirus was "deadly" -- even as he publicly played down the effects of the spreading pandemic. “You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump told Woodward during a Feb. 7 call. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.” “This is deadly stuff,” the president said. Though this conversation happened in February, it was not reported until now. VideoAt that time, Trump was saying that the contagion was no more virulent than the...
    Savannah Rychcik September 9, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is suggesting he may have misled the American people in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic to prevent widespread fear. A reporter asked Trump on Wednesday if he misled the public in order to reduce panic. “If you said in order to reduce panic, perhaps that’s so,” Trump said. He added, “The fact is I’m a cheerleader for this country. I love our country, and I don’t want people to be frightened. I don’t want to create panic, as you say, and certainly, I’m not going to drive this country or the world into a frenzy.” Watch his comments below: “The fact is I’m a cheerleader for this country, I love our country, and I don’t want people to be frightened.

    President Donald Trump was reportedly warned by his national security adviser in January that the virus outbreak emerging in China would be the “roughest thing” he would face during his time in the Oval Office, but Trump decided to play the seriousness down to the public rather than addressing it head-on. As a new report from The Washington Post revealed, both Robert O’Brien and deputy national security adviser Matthew Pottinger briefed the president on the novel coronavirus, saying that it would be similar to the 1918 pandemic that killed 50 million people. In public, Trump told the nation that he thought it would be no worse than the seasonal flu and would fade away on its own. Behind closed doors, however, he reportedly had a good idea of just how bad things might get. He allegedly called Bob Woodward, an editor for The Washington Post, and told him he’d been downplaying the situation. “You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more...
    Adopting a neutral tone, correspondent C. Brooks Peters noted that historians of the future should value the importance of the “private and personal domain of the Führer,” a space where discussions of the war front were interspersed with “walks with his three dogs. shepherds along majestic mountain trails “. For more than 70 years we have ignored Peters’ claim to take Hitler’s domestic spaces seriously. When we think of the scenarios of Hitler’s political power, we are more likely to imagine the Zeppelin field in Nuremberg than the living room of his house. In the years before World War II that image was used strategically and effectively, both in Germany and abroad, to distance the dictator from his violent and cruel policies. A radical change Nazi mythologies about Hitler’s origins emphasized his poverty and homelessness as a young man, as well as his disdain for comforts. Through the silk curtains and porcelain vases, Hitler’s designers suggested the existence of a refined and peaceful inner world. Inspired by British design reform movements, it emphasized quality materials...

    Dr. Anthony Fauci on Tuesday morning dismissed President Donald Trump's Monday night rant accusing him of 'misleading' Americans regarding antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine. 'I don't know how to address that,' the nation's top immunologist told Good Morning America regarding the president's Twitter storm. 'I'm just going to, certainly, continue doing my job.' 'I, you know, I don't tweet, I don't – I don't even read them,' Fauci, 79, told ABC News host George Stephanopoulos. 'So I don't really want to go there.' Trump went on a Twitter frenzy Monday night, including retweets of posts claiming Fauci lied to the country regarding hydroxychloroquine, which the president revealed he has taken as a preventative measure to stop him from contracting coronavirus. He also reposted videos of a doctor who claimed the anti-Malaria drug is a 'cure' for COVID-19.  Several of the tweets he shared with his 84 million follower, however, were taken down by Twitter citing misinformation regulations. Fauci, now a scorned member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, pushed back Tuesday morning: 'I have not been misleading the American public under...
