New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s fate isn’t particularly interesting insofar as retail politics are concerned. But the meta ramifications could be fascinating:

He has virtually no public support. One-third of respondents are “not sure” and are excluded from the above, but outright majorities of most groups and strong pluralities of even Democrats and of liberals say he should vacate.

The state assembly and state senate presumably have the numbers to impeach and convict him, but New York is effectively a one-party state. Because the legislature routinely balks on principle at anything requiring Republican opposition to pass, it’s not certain they will be able to marshal a sufficient number of defenestration votes. It would be a lot easier if he’d resign on his own.

But it doesn’t look like he will. Cuomo is digging in his heels. Virginia governor Ralph Northam held on, but he never lost the public support of his own party the way Cuomo has. That was during the Trump presidency, when there was a greater premium on the appearance of Democrat unity than there is now.

Politically speaking, Cuomo is at this point entirely expendable. The masses want him gone. If he puts a thumb in the eye of the corporate media, the political establishment, and the masses by incorrigibly refusing to budge, it may represent cancel culture having reached its high water mark. Can’t spell “antihero” without “hero”, I guess!

  1. He can’t resign until the Oscars.

  2. I wonder if he thinks that he can still be president. I wouldn’t count Newsom out yet.

    Hmmmmm. Kamala’s two most serious contenders are now foundering whereas just one year ago I would have counted them as the front runners. Hmmmmmmm.

    It is all about the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY in the Democrat Party presidential primary and Kamala will fall flat with the Church Lady Blacks when pressed.

    I wrote this in August of 2019:

    I can’t believe that Joe Biden is gonna be the Democrat Party presidential primary candidate that successfully uses the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY to win the Democrat Party presidential primary election, but it just might be the case.

    The AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY is to win the votes of Black lady voters in the South and other areas of high Black population concentration. Hillary Clinton used the AUNT JEMIMA STRATEGY to fend of Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democrat Party presidential primary campaign.

    Kamala Harris, according to some guy on the internet, is married to a Jew whose parents moved away from an area in California that was under the threat of racial Black busing in order to avoid having to go to school with large concentrations of Blacks. This arrogant baby boomer boob Kamala Harris had the nerve to attack Joe Biden for his stance on Black racial busing when Kamala Harris’s own Jew husband’s parents moved to get away from the chance that their son would be caught up in the undertow of Black racial busing in California.

    Black Church Ladies and beautiful Aunt Jemima ladies don’t give a crap about no crocodile tears and fake rage about Black racial busing from some damn fool named Kamala Harris!

  3. Some of these allegations about Cuomo have been around a long time … yet only recently got trumpeted in major media … Why now? Perhaps the below related –

    Jewish congregations are suing New York state and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, saying he engaged in a ‘streak of anti-Semitic discrimination’ with a recent [covid rules] crackdown … The lawsuit accused the Democrat of making negative, false, and discriminatory statements about the Jewish Orthodox community

    Mayor DeBlasio is much more anti-Semitic than Cuomo. If racism was being punished by New Yorkers, the Mayor would have been the first one out.

    It is much more plausible that "Granny Killer" Cuomo was already on the ropes from his disastrous WUHAN-19 failures. That left him vulnerable for a #MeToo feeding frenzy. Being a racist certainly did not help Cuomo, but trying to make that The One And Only Cause is a bad case of over reach.

  4. This guy sent hundreds (thousands?) of old people to their deaths, and was known for being corrupt for a long time, but somehow he’s in trouble for supposedly trying to kiss some bitch.

    This says a lot about the priorities in America in 2021. Also, perhaps politicians should stop hiring young attractive women as “aides”, as this opens the door for exactly this kind of stuff?

    But then, wouldn’t women say that this is “sexism” too?

    Then again, having only young men as aides could lead to homosexual harassment, so you can’t win.

    The situation is becoming such that the Mike Pence approach--never alone with any woman--is probably the best way to go for pols to protect themselves.

  5. Cuomo’s clinging to office will, at some point, imperil other New York Democrat office holders. Even if he does not run again just having him in office stains every other Democrat. It may take a call from the FBI to get him to leave. They are looking into just how Cuomo inserted a liability shield for NY hospital and nursing home administrators ( Cuomo Donors) into the state budget.

    Failing at seduction is one thing. Failing at corruption in a state where politicians are expected to excel at it is unforgivable.

  6. Obviously a Russian conspiracy to bring down the Boomer Remover governor before his masterpiece is done. My only regret is that he is not governor of Florida as well. God Bless Andrew Cuomo.

  10. ARREST AND IMPRISON ANDY SFACCIMM CUOMO IMMEDIATELY!

    I wrote this in November of 2019 and it still stands:

    The Governor of New York state, Andrew Cuomo, is a nasty treasonous politician whore for evil and immoral globalizer plutocrats.

    Andrew Cuomo got on his hands and knees like a common three dollar whore and grabbed cash from Ken Langone, Jim Walton, Laurance Rockefeller and Hollywood scumbag Jew Harvey Weinstein.

    Andrew Cuomo has done nothing to change the informal status of New York City and New York state as SANCTUARY JURISDICTIONS for ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS.

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo should be immediately arrested for aiding and abetting the direct harboring of illegal alien invaders.

    I am sure the disgusting lawyer shysters who swarm around Corrupt Cuomo have told him that he is in fact well within the law to informally give harbor to ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS in the form of SANCTUARY CITIES and SANCTUARY STATE policies, but it is clear that he allows New York state to be used as a contractual vehicle to give harbor to ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS.

    Send that FREDO BASTARD ANDREW CUOMO to the slammer now!

  12. The biggest reason that Cuomo has a tougher time than Northam is that practically no one who has a chance of voting Republican actually cares much about blackface. Plus the Democrats have made themselves the arbiters of when blackface is acceptable or unacceptable, and they have a lot of cultural power to define it as acceptable when it suits them, and the sort of people who care about blackface tend to go along with it.

    The fact is that the belief that blackface is evil is entirely an idiosyncrasy and a learned belief within our particular culture. We could easily imagine a culture where such acts are considered entirely benign, or even a sign of affection towards the other race.

    Meanwhile the votes of white women are still in play, and they care a lot about sexual harassment. While highly partisan women might give a lot of wiggle-room to “their guy”, independents and swing voters will not. Moreover, while some cultures might be more or less tolerant of powerful men leveraging their position for sex, I think it’s human nature, and not a cultural idiosyncrasy, that the women who are targets of their unwanted attention will be unhappy about it. Not to mention their husbands or boyfriends, in which case it doesn’t matter if the attention is wanted or unwanted. You don’t want your king to be a lech who might go after your wife.

    No one seems to bring it up, but I’ve often wondered if the fact that Julius Caesar was stabbed 23 times outside the Senate is entirely unrelated to the fact that he’s said to have had a habit of bedding the wives of Senators.

  13. Thinking with the small head. Like that guy who used to be a Prince.

  14. Perhaps Cuomo learned his lesson from Bill Clinton. By staying in office, Clinton was able to continue to maneuver politically to generate and organize opposition to the efforts to remove him. By contrast, if Gerald Ford hadn’t pardoned Richard Nixon, he likely would have been hounded for years for Watergate and other related activities, and quite possibly have died early as a result. (His psychological and physical health was quite poor after he left office.)

  19. I think it will come down to money. If Cuomo loses his pension should he be impeached he will quit faster than Roberto “No Mas” Duran. He knows his career is finished and his activities may also destroy Fredo’s career as well. While Fredo may have some money set aside I doubt career politician Andrew does. At 63 he will probably need a fat pension from New York to keep out of a senior housing project in 10 or 15 years.

    At this point, though, I’m rooting for him. It’s clear Cuomo is being destroyed because he is no longer useful. There’s not going to be a greater reckoning of why state officials stuffed covid patients into nursing homes, instead of buying them a hotel room or a spot on a cruise ship for a couple of weeks. They’re still going to call Rachel Levine a beautiful woman. The way he’s being MeTooed and his asking an aide seven years ago if she had a boyfriend or not being considered the primary offense is also noxious.

    Cuomo should be voted out of office, but I’m rooting for him to cling to power and make a mockery of cancel culture until then.

    Please don’t come this “the constitution” shit, they have made things constitutional/unconstitutional all the time, none of them ever actually mentioned in the constitution. They decree what they want, and then come up with some convoluted legalese on why this was always “constitutional”.

    This guy sent hundreds (thousands?) of old people to their deaths, and was known for being corrupt for a long time, but somehow he's in trouble for supposedly trying to kiss some bitch.

    This says a lot about the priorities in America in 2021. Also, perhaps politicians should stop hiring young attractive women as "aides", as this opens the door for exactly this kind of stuff?

    But then, wouldn't women say that this is "sexism" too?

    Then again, having only young men as aides could lead to homosexual harassment, so you can't win.

    And if you hire an aide from the queer gear so much in vogue, that’ll get legislators of either sex coming and going.

    A few months ago, I would've supported Cuomo being ousted for his handling of the nursing homes. The coverup was even more sickening and showed a depraved mind.

    At this point, though, I'm rooting for him. It's clear Cuomo is being destroyed because he is no longer useful. There's not going to be a greater reckoning of why state officials stuffed covid patients into nursing homes, instead of buying them a hotel room or a spot on a cruise ship for a couple of weeks. They're still going to call Rachel Levine a beautiful woman. The way he's being MeTooed and his asking an aide seven years ago if she had a boyfriend or not being considered the primary offense is also noxious.

    Cuomo should be voted out of office, but I'm rooting for him to cling to power and make a mockery of cancel culture until then.

    Off topic, and not sure it's a topic on Mr Epigone's beat: The Florida personal property insurance market is suffering what might be the biggest case of Jewish lightning since 9/11. There are so many fraudulent claims coming from about 50 mostly Jewish lawyers, that if Jewish communities don't happen to be in some hurricane's wind path, the insured losses are inversely correlated with top sustained wind speeds. It's costing the average Florida family about $600 a year. It's obvious what's happening, but none dare speak its name.

    I wonder how many other fields such things are taking place in.

  39. Cuomo is a prime example how fake and rigged the US-political system is (and how despicable the Dems are in particular). First, the guy kills 15 000 or so elderly via his catastrophic nursing home decision. Then he get’S awards for “handling COVID” (!) – all bc he is needed in the great battle to oust the Bad Ornage Man. Then, a couple months later he becomes expendable, so the DNC in accordance with librul mainstream media fabricates a “MeeToo”-case and he is on his way out.

    So, let’s be clear about this: the Dems didn’t care about thousands of dead seniors, but alleged “sexual misconduct” (whatever that is supposed to be even) is the bigger scandal here. Off-Putting.

    Also reaffirming what “MeeToo” really is: a strategy by liberals to get rid of any male heterosexual (mostly white of course) when they see fit. Arbitrary and ready to be deployed whenever it pleases.

    metoo is an internal power struggle within the Coalition of the Fringes. It's a desperate attempt to re-establish the narrative that rich privileged white heterosexual women are actually horribly oppressed.

    It's no coincidence that it started in Hollywood. Rich heterosexual female movie stars were alarmed by the fact that nobody was taking them seriously as victims any more.

    metoo is a symptom of the steadily declining power of old school feminism (which was entirely dominated by middle-class white women). In the past few years they've become increasingly aggressive as they've become increasingly desperate.

    "Perhaps Cuomo learned his lesson from Bill Clinton AND DONALD TRUMP. By staying in office, Clinton AND TRUMP was able to continue to maneuver politically to generate and organize opposition to the efforts to remove him."

    Fixed it for you.

    As an aside, Cuomo should resign.

    The situation is becoming such that the Mike Pence approach–never alone with any woman–is probably the best way to go for pols to protect themselves.

    So what is the reason he is really being targeted? They could have done this metoo thing for a long time now (and for many other politicians that if they wanted), is it because they want to replace him with somebody who is not white and male?

    Replies: @Audacious Epigone

    Whatever the reason, weaponized wokeness means they can effectively remove anyone, anytime.

    PredictIt has put Cuomo’s chances back at roughly 50/50. It’d dipped as low as 25%. It looks like he may stubbornly hang on after all.

    Cuomo’s situation is different than both Clinton’s and Trump’s, though, in that he has ostensibly lost the support of his own party. Neither Clinton nor Trump did so.

    For politicians, their office staff should not have any attractive females and rosy cheeked/ stubble covered young males.
    I suggest vertically challenged folks, BMI (Body Mass Index) extremists, anorexics and people in love with/married to lifelike silicone kens and barbies as staff.
