'Lawmakers, grow a spine': Janice Dean calls for legal action against Gov. Cuomo amid nursing home scandal

New York state Democratic Attorney General Letitia James recently reported that the state's coronavirus nursing home deaths could have been undercounted by as much as 50%. In response, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) said, "But who cares — 33 [percent], 29 [percent] — died in the hospital, died in a nursing home. They died."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean, who lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in a New York state nursing home, joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to discuss how the mainstream media is finally starting to catch wind that Gov. Cuomo may not have handled the pandemic perfectly.

"It's been 10 months that I've been covering this governor, and he continues to really surprise me with his arrogance, his narcissism, his stupidity," Janice said of Gov. Cuomo.

Janice lambasted the governor's COVID response, in particular his March 25 directive to put coronavirus-infected elderly patients into the state's nursing homes to free up hospital beds. According to the Associated Press, Gov. Cuomo's mandate led to more than 4,500 COVID-positive patients living in what Gov. Cuomo called "the optimum feeding ground for this virus."

"I have been shouting from the mountaintops for 10 months ... talking about Cuomo and the mandate to put COVID-positive patients in a nursing home, and the fact that this governor continues to hide the numbers," Janice stated. "The Justice Department had an investigation into [Cuomo] and he didn't give any information, Glenn. I got it from a top source with the Justice Department, the top investigatory unit in the nation, and he wasn't giving them information. So [AG James] took it upon herself to investigate him, and came up with the fact that the numbers have been skewed. He's been basically covering them up for many months now, and they're at least 50% higher than they've officially been reporting."

Janice also noted an article in the New York Times that reported at least nine high-level health department officials have resigned in recent months over disrespectful treatment form the governor. Gov. Cuomo responded to the criticism by borrowing a line from Mike Tyson: "Everybody has a plan until I punch them in the face."

"[Cuomo was] basically saying, 'I don't need anybody. I know who I rely on ... hospital lobbyists'," Janice explained.

"Top donors, not scientists ... hospital lobbyists, that give [Cuomo] millions of dollars, are whispering in his ear about the nursing home issue and the vaccine rollout. This is criminal ... it's criminal," she added. "We need to take his powers away. He has control over everything. They gave him superpowers, so no one can challenge him. And I've been saying to lawmakers, grow a spine. You have a lot of ammunition now against this governor. Go in, and take his powers away. We are a democracy, not a monarchy."

Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss the Left's current efforts to rid the U.S. military of "extremism," Democrats' push to separate President Joe Biden from the nuclear codes, and how conservatives can use government to battle the far-left, their policies, and their efforts to control Americans.

Crenshaw called the military's efforts to rid their ranks of extremism, "so obviously and clearly politically motivated," as the entire premise is based on reports that some active service members and veterans participated in the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol.

"Mathematically, that's not a good indication of where active duty military stand or where veterans stand more broadly," Crenshaw said of the generalization that military personnel are extremists. "And I thought we were against that kind of profiling. Right? I thought that was against the liberal values that supposedly the Left stands for."

"But, Glenn, you know very well the Left is not liberal," he added. "The Left is very anti-liberal. And I think as conservatives, we have to say that more often. They have become genuinely authoritarian. Progressivism is not in sync with liberalism. All right? There's a big difference between an Alan Dershowitz liberal and a Democrat Party progressive. They're totally different."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
