Andrew Cuomo, Full Of Sound And Fury Has Met The Enemy...And It's Him

Like the cartoon character Pogo, Cuomo thrives but in the different Albany swamp.  But unlike Pogo, Cuomo is unable to utter the words, "We have met the enemy... and he is us."   Cuomo looks everywhere around him in his acknowledged swamp and says, "The government is dysfunctional;"  "There needs to be a new culture. You need to bring in new people. We have to remake the entire state government."   Cuomo needs a mirror.

      The Amsterdam News reports that Cuomo feels he is entitled to votes from New York City and the black community.  But the Amsterdam News asks Cuomo,"Where have you been? Where have you been these last four years? Your ads say that you have been there for New York, but for which New York? Do you mean Black and Brown New York? Upstate New York? Rich New York?"   The answer is Cuomo has been there for the corrupt, the whitewashing, the endless investigations going nowhere, and for serving as lawyer in Federal and State Court for corrupt criminal State employees.   And Cuomo has been there for the Black community, when he has appointed his father's toady, Judith Kaye (who never prosecuted a case), to persecute, but not prosecute Governor Paterson.  Probably for this and his legacy entitlement from Mario, that Cuomo hopes his sound and fury performances will fool enough idiots, whether Black, White, Yellow or Brown.

Andrew, you are the problem.

Coumo's Nest Cleaning Of Sexual Abuse Given A Reprieve Till Friday

The court gave an extension to Friday for Cuomo to file his answer to Esposito as described in Cuomo Can Clean Sexual Abuse From His own Nest on 9/17/2010 Before He Cleans Up Albany

Hopefully, Cuomo's sump pumps at the Attorney General's Office are not just discharging the corrupt sludge to somewhere else in Albany.   Has Andrew gotten a indulgence from Marcia Pappas at NY NOW? 

A Cuomo Family Personality Cult With Pay To Play Improvements

     Isn't nice when we can look down on North Korea and admire our more highly refined version.  Whereas, Kim Jong-il's personality cult around his family provides frequent food shortages, here in NY, our Cuomo personality cult hasn't produced  food shortages, and any pending fiscal collapse is only a future possibility.

       Whereas, Kim Jong-il's sister, Kyong-hui was just raised to four-star general, in NY we have "Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's cousin tried to help a client cash in on state pension fund business last year - a move made amid the attorney general's probe of a pay-to-play scandal."   Why would Andrew Cuomo investigations of pay to play in the Controller's office be of any concern when Andrew Cuomo runs his own version of pay to play in the Attorney General's office and it's funding Cuomo's campaign.  See "Two Faces As Cuomo Changes Pay to Play To Indirect Payment."

        "When Matthew Cuomo set up a June 23, 2009, meeting for Advanced Recovery - an upstate electronic-equipment recycling firm seeking a $5 million pension fund inveMonetizestment - with state Controller Thomas DiNapoli", Matthew Cuomo was only emulating the system in North Korea with Kim's family personality cult.

        In New York, we're so fortunate to have Mario bequest the governorship to his son.  Unlike North Korea, where the Workers' Party met for the first time in 30 years, just so Kim Jong-il could arrange a power transfer for his youngest son, in New York, our Mario anoints a successor without the expense of a Workers' Party conclave.

God's Silver Spoon Legacy For New York Attorney General?

Andrew Cuomo endorses another pampered silver spoon feed brat as Attorney General.   This promises a trifecta of spoiled brats as Attorney General.

   Beginning with Eliot Spitzer, whose father illegally financed "both Eliot Spitzer's 1994 and 1998 campaigns for New York Attorney General, where his father guaranteed loans illegally to finance the campaign and transferred property to Eliot that was used as collateral for a loan to pay off the preceding illegally guaranteed campaign loan."

The Attorney General's Office then was bequeathed to Andrew Cuomo, son of Mario.    And now, Cuomo has anointed Schneiderman, whose father,"Irwin Schneiderman, who has been a significant donor to his son’s campaign, {and}is a long-time member of the WNYC Board of Trustees and has been a generous donor to the station over the years" and who in a Spitzer replay significantly funds Schneiderman's campaign, complete with religious robo appeals.    Maybe, also a Jewish President retry?

   Schneiderman, likely will continue Cuomo's Moral Hazard Record with court corruption, behaving as a monkey with his hands over his eyes and ear plugs in his ears and nurturing corruption.  Senator Schneiderman failed to act on all the court corruption reported while Schneiderman was on the Senate Judiciary Committee.    Maybe, Schneiderman will listen to the hearings after he's elected.
September 24, 200 Senate Hearing http://www.youtube.com/nysenateuncut#p/u/0/knQLll5hmjs  
June 8, 2009 part 1 Senate Hearing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HR8OX8uuAb w
June 8, 2009 part 2 Senate Hearing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28afajRkDwY

    Poor Senator Schneiderman can't even use the excuse that he failed to attend those hearings, because copies of all the testimony summaries were delivered to Schneiderman.  Schneiderman's failures have spawned artistic attention in this video.

 Look at the progression, "Spitzer was ignominiously defeated in the courts in his NYSE and AIG prosecutions. [Although] Spitzer was a successful blackmailer as Attorney General - in court, not so good, losing 80 % of cases."

Cuomo drops the ball in court  http://cuomotarp.blogspot.com/2010/09/midnight-shredding-25000-documents-and.html

While Schneiderman may aspire to a monkey virtue of see no evil, hear no evil, will Schneiderman rename the Cuomo TARP for himself?  

Are Silver Spoons harmful to the voters? And in spirit of religious robo calls,  God help us!

Sherlock Holmes Looks At Spitzer, Gollum Cuomo, Crooks, The NY Times And Medicaid Fraud

           "Things aren't what they seem, skim milk masquerades as cream" (Gilbert and Sullivan)

How would Sherlock Holmes look at Spitzer/Cuomo? Are things what they seem or are there hidden villains? Spitzer begins a new CNN program October 4 with a non-flattering, "of course, the problem that Andrew has is that everybody knows that behind the scenes, he is the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there and that is his reputation from years in Washington. When his father was governor, he was the tough guy. He has brass knuckles and he played hard ball. He has a lot of enemies out there." 

     Maybe, Spitzer hasn't fully examined his downfall?  A new video is coming on Spitzer's demise.  It has Spitzer's enemies as Wall Street crooks and Senate leader, Bruno.  But Spitzer ought take a more detached Holmes'  like view and look who  had the most to gain.   Earlier on this blog, the quest of Gollum Cuomo for the "ring" is revealed.    Imagine Gollum's dread, were Spitzer to run for reelection as Governor and then President in 2012; Gollum's quest would fail because Gollum would be too old in 2020.

     But, there were others with much to benefit with Spitzer's downfall;  Wall Street investigations and prosecutions ground to a halt under Cuomo as Attorney General, but Spitzer could have kept the prosecutions moving by using his NY Constitutional powers to order Cuomo to prosecute those who Spitzer as governor might identify.

Scenarios and the potential winners

scenario 1: Wall Street investigations continue with the "Sheriff of Wall Street," now Governor (using his constitutional powers) directing his Attorney General to prosecute.  And a treasure trove of potential Wall street targets is provided by the Federal TARP bailouts.
    Winners - Spitzer;
  Losers - Cuomo loses the "ring" and is blamed by Wall Streeters using the Cuomo memo in the "smoking gun" on this blog as their excuse that they were just carrying out Cuomo's policy.

 scenario 2: Spitzer realizes Medicaid fraud is bankrupting NY State and orders Cuomo to prosecute.
Winners - Spitzer;
Losers - NY fraudsters in government and Cuomo for not acting in his Public Integrity Unit

the scenario that happened:  Spitzer leaves office in disgrace and "Wall Street" has nothing to fear from Cuomo; the NY Medicaid fraudsters keep their fattened positions and Cuomo now has the "ring" within his grasp.
 Winners - crooks and Cuomo
Losers - The People and Spitzer

Then there's the role of the NY Times, which first reported on the Spitzer scandal.  Clinton didn't resign for Lewinsky, who wasn't paid for sex.  So why would Spitzer resign for paying for sex? Was Spitzer more moral than Clinton?  What else did the NY Times and Feds have on Spitzer?  Did they get it from Cuomo?  And why didn't the NY Times report on the other possible federal charges against Spitzer?

       And then the NY Times removed another obstacle in Gollum Cuomo 's quest, Paterson.  Paterson slithered away after he was was exposed and threatened with further disclosures by the NY Times.  And now, the NY Times is expecting to smear possible new House Speaker, Boehner.    What other crimes and sleaze is the NY Times using to blackmail who else and for whom? On the right, the NY Times is the NY Slimes, or worse, and on the left you have Michael Moore placing blame.

                    Final Tally:
1.Spitzer loses governorship and first "Jewish" Presidency, but gets CNN job.

2. Wall Street crooks get the "Sheriff of Wall Street" off their backs and have a paid replacement, through their attorneys .   See Two Faced Cuomo changes Pay to Play.

3. NY Medicare fraudsters continue to fatten at the public trough while Andrew looks the other way.

4. Cuomo the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there,  fills his campaign chest and continues his quest for the "ring."

5. The NY Times succeeds at blackmail, but its supply of suckers shrinks rapidly.

Who says Cuomo did a good job?  The NY Times?  A good job for who, Wall Street Crooks and Medicaid fraudsters?  Spitzer, the NY Times' former love, was dumped for their new squeeze, Andrew.   The NY Times' bad boy choices lead to the question; what's the NY Times covering up on Andrew( the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there)? Andrew claims to want to drain the Albany swamp, but the outlet passing through the NY Times is willfully clogged with the Cuomo lovelorn.

Midnight Shredding 25,000 Documents And A Thanksgiving Hymn to Andrew

Andrew Cuomo can tell us about "Shredgate" (25,000 documents) which began under Spitzer and ended under Cuomo. "The allegations should violate anyone’s sense of justice: state workers shredding thousands of written requests for name-clearing hearings from people accused of child abuse, then falsely declaring that the accused had withdrawn their requests."   "The shredding party went on for a month in 2004 in the state Office of Children and Family Services’ headquarters in Albany, carried out as most illicit acts are: after midnight, when no one is watching."

       "But the state attorney general’s office, according to a spokesman, never investigated possible crimes or other violations that might have resulted in disciplinary action against the supervisors who ordered the shredding. The attorney general surely was aware of the allegations; his office defended the state in the lawsuit."

    The pattern repeats.   Cuomo's staff places the Cuomo TARP over crimes and/or malfeasances by State employees. The Cuomo TARP protects crooked lawyers, crooked judges and crooked State employees.  Criminal and reprobate State employees have much to thank Cuomo for.

  And a Hymn of Thanksgiving, which can be sung by a Choir of Reprobates in praise of their protector has been written.  It's to the tune of "What a friend we have in Jesus."

What a friend we have in Andrew,
all our sins and crimes to bear!
What a relief to not worry
with Andrew in the Attorney General chair!
O what peace we ought to forfeit,
O what pain and jail we ought bear,
but we are spared and protected
with Andrew in the Attorney General chair.

2. Have we trials and lamentations?
Are there indictments anywhere?
We need never be discouraged;
when we pay up with Andrew's Share.
Can we find an Attorney General so faithless
who will forsake the People so?
Andrew forgives our crime and avarice;
when we pay up with Andrew's share.

3. Are we fat and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Andrew, still our refuge;
when we pay up with Andrew's share.
Do the Voters despise and hate us? 
Well, we'll pay up with Andrew's share!
In his arms he'll hide and shield us;
we will find our protection there.

The People's Enlightenment Daily Prepares Us For Our New Governor

Things are so much better in NY.    In North Korea, "Leader Kim Jong-il likely to use Workers' party assembly to signal he is choosing youngest son Kim Jong-un as successor." Here in New York, Mario's oldest son was anointed governor in waiting by Mario.
     In North Korea, "an internal propaganda document praising Jong-un for his skill at organising a fireworks display and his expert handling of military vehicles. He is a genius of geniuses, the document said. He has been endowed by nature with special abilities. There is nobody on the planet who can defeat him in terms of faith, will and courage." And here in NY, The People's Enlightenment Daily, aka the NYT, has praise for our new governor in waiting and his flawless tenure in a real job as Attorney General and harsh criticism for the party spoilers.
      Praise be to Mario for raising, preparing and giving us our next governor.    And for our environmental image concerns, we wish for new colorful pictures of our governor in waiting in a "green" Mao suit.   And, of course, a identical looking version for the Cuomo Babuska doll.

Cuomo's Dual Role As Both A Financial And A Corruption Moral Hazard

Wikipedia describes "moral hazard:" "Politicians and regulators representing the taxpayer and voter may regulate financial institutions to lend money to specific voting blocks, special ethnicities, special interests, favored companies, and unionized businesses with favored unions, rather than regulate financial institutions to lend money in such a fashion as to reduce the risk the taxpayer will have to bail them out, particularly if the bailout is likely to happen after the next elections."  This aptly describes Andrew Cuomo's acts as HUD Secretary.   But Cuomo's also succeeded in extending "moral hazard" to NY State corruption.

"Andrew Cuomo became a "corruption moral hazard", to add to his prior "financial moral hazard" status.   In an earlier post here, Cuomo's CAP program's failure to be implemented was the beginning part of Cuomo's "corruption moral hazard"  And in the same post, "Cuomo turned the Federal Housing Administration mortgage program into a sweetheart lender with sky-high loan ceilings and no money down, and he legalized what a federal judge has branded "kickbacks" to brokers that have fueled the sale of overpriced and unsupportable loans " This was Cuomo's earlier incarnation as the "financial moral hazard" which directly caused the Federal Tarp bailout and our present economic malaise.  See Cuomo's "smoking gun."

Cuomo as a "corruption moral hazard" was accentuated by his representation of crooked lawyers, judges and other State employees in Federal lawsuits. This is the direct cause of a newly  pending federal action 08 Civ 2391, which concerns fraud, NY State corruption and $140,000.00 stolen from American Red Cross 9/11 donation money- still unpaid; and which names

and the following State employees
THOMAS J. CAHILL, in his official and individual capacity;
SHERRY K. COHEN, in her official and individual capacity;
GARY L. CASELLA, in his official and individual capacity;
NANCY J. BARRY, in her official and individual capacity;
FRANCIS A. NICOLAI, in his official and individual capacity;
JOSEPH M. ACCETTA, in his official and individual capacity,
ROBERT M. DIBELLA, in his official and individual capacity;
ANTHONY A. SCARPINO, in his official and individual capacity

  Cuomo's duty is to NY State and a honest lawful government, not to the protection of crooked State employees.  But, Andrew Cuomo used NY State funds and employees to defend fraud, theft and corruption criminal acts and to obstruct justice by not protecting NY State's interest in honest government and instead defending the criminal acts by State employees.

Luke 16:13 "No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon."

       Andrew Cuomo, you cannot serve the People of NY and Mammon's corrupt NY courts.  Your failure to carry out your CAP program encouraged more corruption and your multiple defenses of crooked State employees in a large number of Federal Corruption cases while Attorney General encouraged even more. The "smoking gun post" has a exact copy of your memo creating a financial moral hazard and along with it our current recession (depression?).

Constitution Day 9/18/2010, Cuomo Replaces Bill Of Rights With Cuomo's TARP

The US Constitution gave us the Bill of Rights (first ten amendments) in federal actions, and after the Civil War the fourteenth amendment extended the Bill of Rights to the citizens of all States for State actions.    This was codified in federal law in 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
Although Supreme Court First Justice Marshall stated: "The Government of the United States has been emphatically termed a government of laws, and not of men. It will certainly cease to deserve this high appellation if the laws furnish no remedy for the violation of a vested legal right,"   when citizens of NY attempt to get federal remedy in federal courts for the deprivation of their civil rights by NY State, Andrew Cuomo through his attorneys claims that they can't obtain those rights
.   ExposeCorruptCourts.blogspot.com lists TEN federal cases in the growing New York Ethics Scandal.
1. (07cv09599) Anderson v The State of New York, et al
2. (07cv11196) Bernstein, et al v Appellate Division First Department Disciplinary Committee, et al
3. (07cv11612) Esposito v The State of New York, et al

9. (08cv04438) McCormick v The State of New York, et al
10.(08cv05455) Capogrosso v The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct, et al
     In NY, the Bill of Rights, Laws and any remedy for their deprivation  has been replaced by the Bill of Protection for crooked lawyers, judges and other protected State employee, aka, Cuomo's Tarp.
And we have the benefit of government by anointed men with the expected  "Legacy" ascension of Andrew Cuomo to Governor.

Wake Up Andrew Cuomo, Your Answer Due Tomorrow, Other Victims of Protected Sex Predator

This is a follow up to an earlier post below,
           Andrew Cuomo, it wasn't just one woman, Ms. Esposito, who was the victim of that sexual predator your office was protecting.   This from the court filing:  " Isaac's former legal secretary ...told Plaintiff,[that] Frank, the Calendar Clerk at Gladstein & Isaac, also witnessed Isaac grabbing Plaintiff's buttocks.  Frank reported this to his Office Manager, Margie Sanchez, and also to Ms. Filomeno; Coincidentally Ms. Filomeno was fired by Harvey Gladstein after she testified at the DDC.  Ms. Filomeno told Plaintiff that Frank, the Calendar Clerk was also fired by  Defendant Harvey Gladstein."  "Ms. Filomeno also reported Mr. Isaacs to DDC, because she had been similarily victimized  by Defendant, Allen Issac."

    Andrew Cuomo is this what women or men are to expect if they testify before NY State entities?   Is your office condoning this and/or obstructing justice?

    Tomorrow, September 17, clean your own nest and restore honor and integrity to the AG office by: 
     Answering tomorrow on September 17, before Federal Judge Scheindlin:
1.You support Ms. Esposito's application to Reopen.
2. Say you still claim immunity for all State employees for their official actions, but only for actions which carried out "your" and State policy to root out and punish corruption
3. Say any acts by State or City employees that did not carry out official policy and were a cover-up are not subject to immunity from Esposito's suit.

Cuomo Appears as Roman God, The Two Faced Janus, On Another Babuska Doll

Andrew Cuomo provides us with another babuska doll where he appears as the Roman God Janus. "Cuomo's campaign to the center has also infuriated the left, and at the victory party for the likely Attorney General nominee, Eric Schneiderman, jubilation was mixed with an eagerness to rub Cuomo's nose in it."
       Meanwhile, "Carl Paladino -- as a more plausible, if extremely longshot, vessel for a "mad as hell" anti-Establishment campaign against the"status Cuomo', " will provide no quarter for Cuomo's clean up promises.
       Poor Andrew Gollum Cuomo wanted to be Godlike, and chose Janus, whose two faces point in opposite directions.   The god-like Andrew's one smiling face ignored all the corruption while he was Attorney General and his other smiling face promises to clean up the same corruption.

Cuomo Can Clean Sexual Abuse From His Own Nest On 9/17/2010 Before He Cleans Up Albany

We open with Cuomo's promises from his website Cuomo2010 in blue:

1. Clean Up Albany

We must restore honor and integrity to government.
We must restore honor and integrity to government, with tough new ethics standards, expanded disclosure requirements, independent investigators to root out and punish corruption

       Now, Cuomo has a second chance on September 17 clean his own nest and to restore honor and integrity to his AG office.  While his staff protected and put the Cuomo TARP over NY state employees covering up for connected attorney, Allen Issacs, with their prior Federal Court filing, Cuomo on September 17 can now root out and punish corruption with the same action now again before the Federal Court.

     Here's the story:  Ms. Luisa Esposito fought back against the connected insider and sexual predator, Alan Issacs, in part with this recording.

      Ms.Esposito was stymied by the corruption and official misconduct of various NY State and City employees named in her Federal suit.   Cuomo's office chose in the prior Federal suit to defend the acts of the corrupt, rather than "root out and punish the corruption."    Now, Ms. Esposito's is asking to reopen her Federal suit with new information and Judge Shira Scheindlin is giving Cuomo's office a chance to answer by September 17.

       Andrew, did you and your office err by condoning and/or obstructing criminal punishment for the following acts described in the Federal action?   Here's the quote from June 1, 2010 Order of  "The First Dept. Disciplinary Committee[which} charged respondent (Issacs) with professional misconduct including making unwanted sexual advances to LE.  Defendant, Issacs, committed Felony Level Sexual Abuse, Coercion And Soliciting Sex From His Client, Obstruction of Justice, etc., these crimes were reported to Manhattan Special Victims Squad, and listed As "Felony Level Sexual  Abuse"; there was an arrest warrant out for Defendant Allen Issacs, which the Police Department never acted upon because, "favors were called". 

     Here's what to do, Andrew:  In your answer on September 17, before Federal Judge Scheindlin:
1. Support Ms. Esposito's application to Reopen.
2. Say you still claim immunity for all State employees for their official actions, but only for actions which carried out "your" and State policy to root out and punish corruption
3. Say any acts by State or City employees that did not carry out official policy and were a cover-up are not subject to immunity from Esposito's suit.

Andrew Cuomo Appears On Another Babuska Doll As Captain Of Keystone Cops

We open another Cuomo Babushka doll and inside is Andrew in a Police uniform with a badge saying Keystone Cop Captain.  Sadly, the Keystone State is Pennsylvania, but that doesn't prevent Andrew from happily smiling.

"A New York state judge has tossed out the felony convictions of two former Marsh & McLennan Cos. executives after finding that the state attorney general's office had failed to turn over to the defense potentially exculpatory evidence, including some 700,000 documents obtained during a related civil proceeding."

Judge "Yates did not buy what he called the "theoretical argument" that 'in the abstract,' the two  [Cuomo] bureaus' are separate and distinct entities operating in disconnected spheres'."   Keystone Captain Cuomo was claiming his right hand didn't know what his left was doing.   But the judge wrote,  "[O]ne office, under the control of one prosecutor is authorized to prosecute Martin Act violations by civil and/or criminal prosecution. Nowhere in this statutory authority conferred upon the Attorney General in either the Executive Law or the General Business Law is there a division of authority."

Richard L. Spinogatti and Robert J. Cleary of Proskauer Rose represented Gilman whose conviction was overturned.   But Keystone Captain Cuomo assuredly was not influenced by Proskauer contributions to his campaign.

The losers were the NY taxpayers who funded this Keystone Cop Farce.  Among the winners were Andrew Cuomo and Proskauer Rose.   Whether justice was served is lost in this farce.

Was Cuomo MIA With A $1.2 Billion Per Year Fraud: Was It The Peter Principle, The Dilbert Principle, Or Cuomo's TARP?

 Federal probe:
"The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the probe Thursday"
"Medicaid payments to nine state institutions for the developmentally disabled, after the Poughkeepsie Journal revealed the facilities had reimbursement rates of $4,556 per day for each of 1,400 residents."
"State officials have said the actual cost of care is only about one-third the rate, and that much of the $1.2 billion in federal matching funds every year supports other state programs for the disabled."

Where was Cuomo and his office?   This is fraud, because State Officials say it costs only a third of the claimed $ 1.2 billion amount or $400 million a year.   Are Cuomo and his office asleep, incompetent or covering up (the CuomoTARP)?

Has Cuomo risen to his "Peter Principle" level of incompetence?    Or, has Cuomo risen from his failures at HUD under the Dilbert Principle to Attorney General?    Or has Cuomo kept his TARP covering up this immense fraud by State employees and political hacks?
Andrew, since "specifically, the federal agency ... pays half the rate as part of a 50-50 state-federal match, where is NY State's $1.2 billion dollar per year share going?   And how much of the state's share is being shifted onto Local County Tax bills?   How can State employees committing such fraud be retained and not prosecuted?
