Democrat Governor Set to Receive an Award After Acting Like a Nazi

Governor Cuomo Trump Vaccine Lockdown New York

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is being awarded the International Emmy Founder’s Award for his daily Covid-19 briefings. The announcement came just days after Cuomo set a limit on Thanksgiving celebrations in the state. No more than ten people are allowed to gather in their own homes. Freedom is under attack.

Governor Cuomo thinks he’s king

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has enacted some of the most draconian Covid-19 lockdown measures in the country. His latest move was to limit Thanksgiving gatherings to a maximum of ten people to slow the spread of the virus during the holiday season.

He also told law enforcement that they must enforce his policies. Remember, these are the same Democrats calling President Trump an Authoritarian. Who’s the real Nazi here? Some New Yorkers are sick and tired of all the lockdowns.

Police break up religious gatherings but allow mobs of thugs to run loose burning, looting and murdering. Cuomo said Trump would need to bring an army if he wanted to visit New York. He also said he would “deck Trump” if he wasn’t Governor. What a classy guy.

But not everyone is upset by New York’s leadership. The International Emmy Founders decided the Governor’s handling of Covid-19 was so incredible that he deserves an award.

During a press conference, CEO of the organization Bruce Paisner said “The Governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure. People around the world tuned in to find out what was going on, and New York tough became a symbol of the determination to fight back.”

Cuomo will receive the award during the live awards show Monday morning “in recognition of his leadership during the Covid-19 pandemic and his masterful use of television to inform and calm people around the world.” How nice.

Meanwhile, murder is up 40% in New York City compared to last year. There is a mass exodus from New York City as crime spikes and the economy tanks. One New York writer says the city is dead, forever. That’s a bold statement but it may be true. The pandemic has forced a lot of businesses to close and other companies to work remote.

People are realizing they don’t need to live in a crowded, expensive, crime infested city like New York just to find employment. Cities are terrible for your physical and mental health. Rural America is the place to be. In case you missed it, here’s a clip of one of Cuomo’s award winning press conferences.

Matthew McConaughey Signals at Running for Texas Governor

McConaughey Governor Texas Interview Politics

In a recent interview, Academy Award winner Mathew McConaughey said he would consider running for Governor of Texas. The actor discussed other entertainers that have made the transition to politics, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Jesse Ventura and even President Donald Trump.

Texas Governor McConaughey?

Mathew McConaughey is making his rounds on the podcast circuit to promote his new memoir, “Greenlight.” In a recent interview on the Hugh Hewitt show he was asked if he would consider running for Governor in his home state of Texas.

He replied, “I wouldn’t be opposed to that. But ultimately it would be up to the people.” McConaughey was born and raised in The Lone Star State. He currently resides in Austin with his family.

“Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now,” McConaughey said during the podcast. “When politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested. You know, I still question how much you can really get done in politics, and I don’t know if politics is my avenue to get what maybe I am best equipped to get done.”

McConaughey has stayed active in his community over the years. He’s been a guest professor at the University of Texas in Austin since 2015 where he teaches a film class.

During the COVID-19 panic earlier this year, the famous actor hit the road with his wife to donate and deliver more than 100,000 masks to rural Texas hospitals. The next governor’s race is in 2022 and current Governor Greg Abbott is up for re-election.

Film star turned politician

McConaughey noted that the political arena has been incredibly divisive lately and he’d like to see things cool down a bit before he gets involved.

“I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people,” he said. “This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, ‘OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together forward.’”

Actor Matthew McConaughey hinted that he might consider running for governor of his home state of Texas in the future.

In a Tuesday interview on “The Hugh Hewitt Show” when asked if he would ever run for governor, the 51-year-old Academy Award-winning actor said, “I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me.”

He was on the podcast promoting his new book called “Greenlights.”

“I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again,” he said, adding that the country doesn’t “trust each other.”

“Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now,” McConaughey added. “And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested.”

In further explaining how he feels about the current state of politics, the actor delved into getting behind “personal values.”

“I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again,” he said, adding that the country doesn’t “trust each other.”

“We don’t trust each other, and that leads to us not trust in ourselves, which if that becomes epidemic, then we’ve got anarchy,” the “True Detective” actor continued. “I’m all for the individual, and I think it’s for — to make collective change that the individual needs to look in the mirror and say, ‘How can I be a little bit better today?’”

After that, McConaughey emphasized that “Coming out of the election right now, we’ve got to stabilize. This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together, forward.”

The current governor of the Lone Star State, Greg Abbott (R), faces a re-election contest in 2022. Texas places no term limits on its governors.

If McConaughey runs for governor and actually wins, this wouldn’t be the first time that a Hollywood actor became a governor of a U.S. state. Ronald Reagan was elected governor of California in 1966 and served two full terms before being elected president in 1980. Though former professional wrestler Jesse Ventura isn’t an actor per se, it should be noted that he served a full term as governor of Minnesota in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

While the actor has never publicly endorsed President Donald Trump or any other candidate for president, he has been openly critical of the country’s left wing when it comes to the controversial president. McConaughey said in 2016 after Trump was elected that “A lot of people that I know on the far left were in denial after he had become the president.”

“I remember saying, well look, regardless of [Trump’s] politics, in the very first question, what do we say in America is successful? What do we give credit and respect?” McConaughey continued. “The top two things are money and fame. And I said guys, just on a very base level, Trump has those, so I don’t know why we should be so surprised that he got elected.”

Republican Mark Robinson Will Be North Carolina’s First Black Lieutenant Governor

Republican and political outsider Mark Robinson just became the first black lieutenant governor of North Carolina, defeating an opponent who has been involved in state government for 25 years.

According to unofficial results posted by the North Carolina Board of Elections, Robinson won the seat by a margin of about 3.3 percent or just shy of 178,000 votes.

Robinson’s Democratic opponent Yvonne Lewis Holley, who is also black, told local ABC11 reporter Tim Pulliam that she had conceded the race Tuesday evening.

While Holley has spent a quarter of a century in politics, Robinson entered the arena after his speech about gun rights at a Greensboro City Council meeting went viral in 2018. In the video, which has garnered more than 4 million views, Robinson slammed government officials for restricting the Second Amendment rights of peaceful and responsible citizens.

“You want to restrict my right to but a firearm and protect myself,” he said. “Law-abiding citizens … we’re the first ones taxed and the last ones considered.”

“We vilify the police and make the criminals into victims,” Robinson added. “We want our rights and we want to keep our rights, and by God, we’re going to keep them, come hell or high water.”

Robinson, whose website notes he is an Army veteran and a Christian, is also a supporter of school choice and the pro-life movement.

In North Carolina, candidates for governor and lieutenant governor run separately, so Robinson will serve alongside incumbent Gov. Roy Cooper. Cooper is a Democrat, having beaten Republican challenger and current Lt. Gov. Dan Forest by about 5 percent of votes statewide.

Despite the historic nature of Robinson’s victory, major media outlets appeared to give the Republican little attention. Google and Twitter searches of the New York Times, the Washington Post, and CNN revealed no results with Robinson’s name since before Election Day as of this writing.

Sarah Palin Steps Back Into the Ring, About to Take on RINO ‘I can See 2022 From My House’

Sarah Palin calls out Lisa Murkowski on Instagram

Former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has threatened to challenge Senator Lisa Murkowski in the 2022 primary for refusing to back President Trump‘s Supreme Court nominee before the 2020 election.

In an video posted to her Instagram account, Palin called out Murkowski while standing in front of her home in Alaska.

“Lisa Murkowski, this is my house. I’m willing to give it up … for the greater good of this country and this great state,” Palin says.

Palin goes on to tell Murkowski to “walk back” her decision that she will not vote on a Supreme Court nominee from President Trump, and that she would rather wait and let the winner of the presidential election nominate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg‘s replacement.

“For weeks, I have stated that I would not support taking up a potential Supreme Court vacancy this close to the election. Sadly, what was then a hypothetical is now our reality, but my position has not changed,” Murkowski said on Sunday.

“I did not support taking up a nomination eight months before the 2016 election to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Justice Scalia. We are now even closer to the 2020 election – less than two months out – and I believe the same standard must apply,” she continued.

Murkowski already attempted to slightly walk back her position, stating on Tuesday that she “can’t confirm whether or not I can confirm a nominee when I don’t know who the nominee is.”

Palin hinted in her video that Murkowski may face a backlash if she does not vote to confirm President Trump’s nominee.

“If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” Palin said.

“Walk back what you have already committed yourself to. You better backtrack. You know, you have already put yourself in this box saying no matter who it is, you’re not going to support the person, not until you have a chance to appoint a judicial nominee under another president instead of this one. You’re hoping, what, that this president doesn’t win? Otherwise, you’d be cooperating with the president. Really, what it is is cooperating with the majority of Americans who know that it’s now or never for America,” Palin continued.

“So much hinges on the Supreme Court. You know the reason, you know why it’s so important, and that’s why you’re thinking you’re going to go rogue. You know, there’s a time and a place to go rogue. This isn’t the time, this isn’t the place. We sure hope you have it within you to do the right thing this time. So you should walk back,” Palin says, referencing to her 2009 book “Going Rogue.”

“We’ll forgive you. Wait … we’ve done this how many times before, though? And we kept saying we’d forgive this? If you can’t do that, remember my house. I can see a lot of things from my house. … Lisa, I can see 2022 from my house,” Palin says as she ends the video.

The video, which was broken in to three parts, was posted to Palin’s Instagram on Thursday:

According to The Daily Wire, “Palin made a similar threat to Murkowski in 2018 after the senator voted against pushing Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation out of the Senate Judiciary Committee to the full Senate.”

“Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house,” Palin said.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is BACK, Proves How Awesome of a Republican He Is

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor and former California Governor made an offer to personally fund the reopening of polling places which had been closed due to supposed budget issues.

Schwarzenegger tweeted about the issue, stating: “I’ve been thinking about this a lot. I’m a fanatic about voting. Most people call closing polls voter suppression. Some say it is ‘budgetary.’ What if I made it easy & solved the budgetary issue? How much would it cost to reopen polling places?”

The former governor continued, saying that his question was serious, and wondering what the real reason behind the closed polling places. “Is closing polling stations about making it harder for minorities to vote, or is it because of budgets? If you say it’s because of your budget, let’s talk,” he said.

In Schwarzenegger’s tweet, he linked to a Reuters article about the closure of polling places in the south. The article discusses the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision, which may have weakened parts of the Voting Rights Act, critics say.

The article also cites the Leadership Conference on Human Rights, a civil rights group, who reported that 1,200 polling places have been closed in the south since the decision.

Along with Michelle Obama, Ann Romney, and Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, Schwarzenegger will be appearing in a get-out-the-vote special set to air on ABC later this month.

Poll: Americans Trust The Media The Least For COVID-19 Information

Americans strongly distrust the media more than any other source for information on COVID-19, according to a new poll released by CBS News and YouGov.

The poll asked 2,493 registered voters questions about America, coronavirus, policy, and the presidential candidates.

With 2.4 point margin of error, results demonstrated that levels of trust in information provided by “Donald Trump, Your state’s governor, Anthony Fauci, The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Medical and health professionals, and National media” concerning coronavirus have all decreased since March 2020.

According to the 112-page battleground tracker report, only 35 percent of Americans trust the mainstream media for COVID-19 information, while 86 percent of Americans have trust in “medical and health professionals.” Over 60 percent trust Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, 55 percent trust their state’s governor, 54 percent trust the CDC, and 40 percent trust President Donald Trump.

The largest fall in trust belongs to the CDC, which experienced a 36 percent drop in confidence since March 2020. While trust in governors dropped 14 percent and trust in the national media dropped 10 percent, the smallest decline in trust belongs to Donald Trump with only a 6 percent drop.

Low trust in the mainstream media shouldn’t come as a surprise. Whether it’s a lack of acknowledgment about violent riots or allegations against the president using only anonymous sources, the media has proven time and time again that it doesn’t deserve the American peoples’ trust.
