'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."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
