Republican Governors Policies are Saving Lives while the Tyrannical Democrat COVID Policies are bringing Death

Democrat states such New York and New Jersey as well as the liberal countries like Italy and the United Kingdom are killing off the elderly by state COVID-19 "totally irresponsible, negligent and stupid" laws.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's "New York State, the UK and Italy all had laws that encouraged infected coronavirus patients to be sent back to nursing homes" according to Blabber Buzz:

"A new study by reveled that 39% of all US coronavirus deaths occurred in nursing homes. That comes out to 31,900 Deaths in Nursing Homes! That is a really shocking number! 49,895 deaths were outside of nursing homes. Which is what you might expect from a typical flu season. 


"Italy also saw 40% of their coronavirus deaths in nursing homes."


"At least 4,900 seniors have died in New York State nursing homes from the coronavirus so far this year. Around 20 percent of all New York state deaths were in nursing homes."


"New York State, the UK and Italy all had laws that encouraged infected coronavirus patients to be sent back to nursing homes. And now thousands of seniors are dead from the virus."

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo may be responsible for as many as 5,300 "coronavirus deaths in nursing homes and long-term care facilities... in New York" according to WREN:


WREN Radio says that Long Island nursing home nurse Elaine Mazzotta said that apparently Cuomo and his state officials are "totally irresponsible, [and] negligent" for "a state directive that requires nursing homes [to] take on new patients infected with COVID-19" which may have caused the deaths of many of the 5,300 elderly:

[A] state directive that requires nursing homes take on new patients infected with COVID-19 — an order they say accelerated outbreaks in facilities that are prime breeding grounds for infectious diseases."

“'The way this has been handled by the state is totally irresponsible, negligent and stupid,' said Elaine Mazzotta, a nurse whose mother died last month of suspected COVID-19 at a Long Island nursing home. 'They knew better. They shouldn’t have sent these people into nursing homes.'”
"Of the nation’s more than 25,000 coronavirus deaths in nursing homes and long-term care facilities, more than a fifth of them — about 5,300 — are in New York, according to a count by The Associated Press, and the toll has been increasing by an average of 20 to 25 deaths a day for the past few weeks."

It appears that the liberals states and countries such New York, Italy and New Jersey (46% of death in nursing homes) are killing off the elderly by state coronavirus hysteria "laws":


"The New Jersey Health boss further warned that 'post-acute care facilities are prohibited from requiring a hospitalized patient/resident who is determined medically stable to be tested for COVID-19 prior to admission or readmission.'”


"The order was horrifying, but not unusual. A number of blue states, including New York and California, had issued similar orders. But New Jersey had nearly half its deaths occur in nursing homes. Horrifying scenes, such as 18 bodies stacked in one nursing home facility waiting for pickup or the 53 veterans who died at the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home in Paramus, would soon fill the news."


"As of now, 16,000 deaths have happened in nursing homes nationwide. That’s 1 in 4.
But in more liberal areas, the numbers have been much higher. 44% of Illinois coronavirus deaths have been tied to nursing homes with over 1,000 fatalities. That’s compared to 1 in 5 in Texas and Florida. Meanwhile in Europe, around half the deaths have been taking place in nursing homes.


In New Jersey, 3,376 deaths out of the 7,228 deaths in the state have occurred in nursing homes."


"That’s 46% or nearly 1 in 2 deaths."

Moreover, should Cuomo be charged with manslaughter for many of the 5,300 "coronavirus deaths in nursing homes... in New York"?

Is New York Governor Andrew Cuomo responsible for many of the 5,300 "coronavirus deaths in nursing homes and long-term care facilities... in New York"?:

WREN Radio says that Long Island nursing home nurse Elaine Mazzotta said that apparently Cuomo and his state officials are "totally irresponsible, [and] negligent" for "a state directive that requires nursing homes [to] take on new patients infected with COVID-19" which may have caused the deaths of many of the 5,300 elderly:

FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors defines involuntary manslaughter as:


"Involuntary manslaughter, on the other hand, occurs when someone dies as a result of the defendant's non-felonious illegal act or as a consequence of the defendant's irresponsibility or recklessness."
[https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/voluntary-manslaughter-overview.html]

FindLaw's give the following examples of involuntary manslaughter:


"For example, if the operator of a dangerous carnival ride fails to ensure that all passengers are strapped in and people die as a result, the operator could be prosecuted for involuntary manslaughter. A building manager who recklessly neglects to install smoke detectors before the occurrence of a deadly fire might be charged with involuntary manslaughter, too." [https://criminal.findlaw.com/criminal-charges/involuntary-manslaughter-overview.html]


Should Democrat Cuomo and his state officials be charged with involuntary manslaughter for their "totally irresponsibl[ity]," in making "a state directive that requires nursing homes [to] take on new patients infected with COVID-19" which may have caused the deaths of many of the 5,300 elderly?


On the other hand, Republican governors are saving lives. The governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis, on the Rush Limbaugh Show explained how he saved lives and why the newest leftist media propaganda for new lockdowns is scientific nonsense:

RUSH: Well, the news every day, the media every day, we are being inundated, we’re being pummeled with record number of new cases reported, every day, setting records in your state, in Florida, Texas, Arizona. And as I look at it, it appears that an effort’s being made to associate number of cases with either instant death or ultimate death, that this number that they’re reporting is going to lead to that same number dying.

And I looked at the death rate. The death rate is actually coming way, way down as the number of cases — and this is true in Florida as well — as the number of cases rise, the death rate is down. And Dr. Fauci today said that’s a false premise. And I don’t understand what he means by that. Why in the world is that not good news?

DESANTIS: Well, obviously, I mean, I think it is good news. Part of the reason we have a lower fatality rate in Florida is because we really focused on protecting those people who are most vulnerable to the virus, such as our senior citizens living in long-term care facilities. We barred hospitals from sending the sick coronavirus patients back into nursing homes ’cause we knew it would lead to spread and more death amongst the most vulnerable population.

 

And if you compare us to states that did the opposite where they forced them back in, you know, the 
numbers speak for themselves. But what we’ve also done since March and April is we’ve established 12 COVID-only nursing facilities around the state so that if someone tests positive in a nursing home and they can’t be isolated properly we have a place where they could be transferred and be safe and not put the other residents at risk.

So we’ve done a lot of things like that to lower the burden on the most vulnerable. But, you know, you also look at things like we are testing way more than what we were testing in March and April. And it’s definitely true, California, Texas, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, we have seen more spread over the past three weeks, that is true, but we’re also testing anyone that walks in the door. March and April around the country, to get a test, you had to be symptomatic and initially you had to be 65 and older at a lot of these drive-through test sites.

Well, now, people can come in in their twenties and they don’t have to have symptoms, you test, and, you know, some of them test positive. The number one age right now in Florida that has the most cases is age 21, which that would not have been the case in March and April ’cause a lot of those 21-year-olds wouldn’t have even qualified for a test. So what we’re dealing with now is different than the Northeast in March and April. And if you look at Texas, you look at Florida, you look at some of those states, we’ve had what we thought everybody said we wanted was a flatter curve. You know, we flattened it out in March and April.

And now obviously you still have infections that you deal with. But we’re in really good shape to be able to deal with it. I mean, the nursing home situation, you know, we’ve got all those 12 facilities. We do have every hospital can test anyone that comes in now so they’re able to prevent it from spreading, you know, in the hospital. We have therapeutics available now. And it’s just down the line, I think that’s contributing to these better outcomes.

But, yeah, I think the outcomes, you know, are really what matters. And look, Rush, if I could just snap my fingers and get rid of the virus I would do it, but that’s not how these viruses work. Flatten the curve was never that you wouldn’t have any more infections. It was that you would spread ’em out over a longer period of time.

 

So if I have my druthers, I’d obviously rather those infections go to people who are healthy and can fight it off rather than the most vulnerable. And if you’re able to do that and shield the most vulnerable, you will have a lower fatality rate. And our case fatality rate is like four to five times lower than some of the higher-death states, you know, that we had in the Northeast.

RUSH: Yeah. I’ve looked at the numbers. Florida is practically in the middle of all 50 states in terms of the death rate per million number of cases. Still today, New Jersey and New York and Connecticut are leading in deaths per million. And yet they’re not in the news anymore. They’re being reported as having solved the problem, they’re on the downhill swing, everything’s looking good, Governor Cuomo is brilliant, blah, blah, blah.

Meanwhile, they’re focusing on you, they’re focusing on Texas. I saw a story yesterday, guy from the Hoover institute, Scott Atlas, who’s been really studying the data. And he found that the ICU units in Texas hospitals are pretty much full, which, by the way, is how hospitals make money. But, secondly, only 15% of the ICU beds were COVID-19 patients. The other 85% were filled by people who now are free to come in for elective surgeries or cancer screenings when they weren’t a month or two ago.

DESANTIS: Not only that, Rush, you’re exactly right, but it’s even more than that. In March and April, because of the amount of fear and hysteria that was out there, you had a huge drop in people coming for things like heart attacks and stroke. And so what’s happened is people put off care ’cause they thought that they may get coronavirus in the hospital or they thought that all the hospitals were overflowing with corona patients and they just didn’t want to go in because of that.

 

So now you have people that are going back and showing up to get the care they need. Now, unfortunately, some of those folks who deferred care, their conditions are more acute now. But we would rather have them go in and get the care they need. And what they don’t tell you when they run these things is, you know, in Florida right now, you know, we’ve got about 6,000 ICU beds statewide. We’ve got about a thousand available. But they usually run much higher than that. They usually run at 95, 98%. That’s how hospitals work.

So we’ve had between 15 and 20% available for the past like five or six weeks. That’s a lot of space for how these hospitals are supposed to operate. And not only that, they had the capacity to double their ICU capacity, if need be. And one of the things that the media was doing in Florida is they’re going around saying there are all these counties that have no ICU capacity, which was actually a grain of truth, Rush, ’cause we have a lot of rural counties that don’t have ICUs at all. So if somebody needs that type of care, they go to one of the bigger medical systems in the state. So a lot of this is being put out, I think, to scare people. It’s not productive. And look, if they’re using it for political reasons ’cause they don’t like Republican governors – (crosstalk)

RUSH: Amen.

DESANTIS: But no, here’s the thing that bothers me, is that people do get frightened when they see some of this stuff, and it does deter some people potentially from going in to seek care. And that’s a bad consequence to have happen.

RUSH: We are talking to the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis. I want to go back to the number of cases. You mentioned that testing and widely expanded testing is one of the reasons why so many new cases are being reported. Is there any other reason for it? What else is happening besides expanded testing?

DESANTIS: So it’s expanded testing numbers, looser criteria, really no criteria to get a test, so we get more asymptomatic. And you have had as I mentioned, you know, the last three to four weeks you’ve seen an increase in the percent of people testing positive. So there is spread and throughout the Sunbelt I think is a good — you know, you do look at that. So today we were 14%. You know, throughout all of May and the beginning of June, we were typically 4% positivity. So that is something that we’re concerned about.

Now, I think a lot of that is being driven by some of these younger demographics who are spreading it more readily. But that has definitely been a factor. But if we were to test only symptomatic people, which is typically how testing works — I mean, normally if you’re just going about your business, you don’t go and just get tests for no reason. You know, the numbers would be very much lower in terms of raw case count.

Finally, Governor DeSantis and most Republican governors anti-tyranny policies are saving lives while the tyrannical Democrat COVID policies are bringing about death. The Epoch Times reports that the "Least-Restrictive States Have Lower CCP Virus Death Rates; Most-Closed States Have Highest":

States with the least restrictions on their citizens’ movements and businesses due to the CCP virus have the lowest death rates on average from the pandemic that prompted a national lockdown beginning in mid-March, according to a new study. 

Conversely, the most restrictive states show higher death rates on average from the disease known as COVID-19, which originated in late 2019 in China..
South Dakota remains the least restrictive of the 50 states, thanks to Gov. Kristi Noem, a Republican who from the beginning of the crisis has resisted nationwide calls to close businesses and keep individuals in their homes as much as possible.

States began removing restrictions in May, but at widely varying paces.

Wisconsin and Utah are the second- and third-least-restrictive states, followed by South Carolina and North Dakota in fourth and fifth, respectively, in the survey conducted by WalletHub, a personal finance website that regularly conducts data-driven analysis of current issues.

The survey calculated each state’s relative position on 16 separately weighted metrics that include the strictness of mask requirements, travel restrictions, large gathering restrictions, reopening of restaurants and bars, and workplace temperature screening.

South Dakota has the 15th lowest death rate, while Wisconsin is 24th, Utah is 12th, South Carolina is 23rd, and North Dakota is 14th, for an average of 17.6. 

The next five least-restrictive states include Missouri, Iowa, Idaho, Oklahoma, and Wyoming, in that order.

At the other end of the spectrum, New Mexico is the most restrictive, followed by Vermont, California, Hawaii, and New York. New Mexico ranks 51st for restrictions and has the ninth-highest death rate. The District of Columbia is included as a state. 

Vermont and California are 50th and 49th, respectively, on restrictions, but the latter has the 21st highest death rate, while Vermont ranks among the states with the lowest death rate, at sixth.

Hawaii has the lowest death rate in the nation. New York is 25th on the death-rate ranking. The average death-rate figure for the five most restrictive states is 20.4. 
The next five most restrictive states include Maryland, New Hampshire, Virginia, New Jersey, and Colorado.

The death-rate difference between the two groups of states increases when the next five states, respectively, are added: 16.6 for the 10 least-restrictive states, compared to 27.5 for the 10 most-restrictive states. Even so, Hawaii and Vermont rank among the states with the lowest death rates.

The lower death rate on average for the least-restrictive states appears to belie predictions that some officials have encouraged their states to relax restrictions too quickly.

“Daily deaths from the disease in the United States have fallen dramatically since April, and that downward trend has continued into June,” according to calculations by Reason’s Jacob Sullum.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of the Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of the Mary. 


Please, pray an Our Father now for President Trump and our Church as well as our country now because this is the important fork in the road for the Catholic Church and the United States. Please, keep this intentions in your prayers.

"Exorcist Fr. Ripperger is asking everyone to say this Prayer until the Election is Resolved"

A good friend of the Catholic Monitor got this from a group message. She said "exorcist Fr. Chad Ripperger is asking everyone to say this prayer until the election is resolved": Prayer of Command In His Name and by the power of His Cross and Blood, I ask Jesus to bind any evil spirits, forces and powers of the earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.  By the power of the Holy Spirit and by His authority, I ask Jesus Christ to break any curses, hexes, or spells and send them back to where they came from, if it be His Holy Will.  I beseech Thee Lord Jesus to protect us by pouring Thy Precious Blood on us (my family, etc.), which Thou hast shed for us and I ask Thee to command that any departing spirits leave quietly, without disturbance, and go straight to Thy Cross to dispose of as Thou sees fit.  I ask Thee to bind any demonic interaction, interplay, or communications.  I place N.

If Kamala Harris' Father is part White & part Jamaican African and her Mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black?

  Is Joe Biden's running mate really Black? If Kamala Harris' father is part white and part Jamaican African and her mother is Asian-Indian then is she really Black? Reason.com tries to figure it out: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's pick to be the Democratic Party's vice-presidential nominee, is the daughter of an Indian immigrant mother and a Jamaican immigrant father. Her father, as I understand it, has ancestors of both European and African origin. [Welcome new Volokh readers. FYI, I've been working on a book on the American Law of Race, with this forthcoming article the first relevant output. My own opinion is that Ms. Harris should be deemed American, period, but there is no such box on government forms, and if you decline to state your race, someone will decide for you… First things first. There is no multiracial or mixed-race category in American law in any jurisdiction. Nor is there an Indian category. So Harris cannot be legally Indian, nor can she b
