Jim Acosta refuses to answer @BlueBoxDave‘s questions about CNN’s lack of coverage of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s nursing home scandal and the allegations of sexual assault against him.21.8K views0:01 / 1:22Copy Video Address12:15 PM · Feb 26, 2021
It comes as CNN continues to face a credibility crisis over an unprecedented push to downplay and deflect from the Democrat’s controversies, with the far-left network giving its developments little to no airtime — and giving Chris Cuomo free rein to conduct friendly, comical interviews with the scandal-plagued governor.
A video shared on Twitter shows Marcus barging into an interview Acosta was conducting at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).
In this case “enemies don’t make strange bedfellows”; Any politician who has been in office as long as the Covid-19 governor of N.Y. is sure to accumulate a long list of political enemies. You would not have known this to be fact on January 1, 2019 or January 1, 2020, but on January 1, 2021 these combatants of the same party affiliation have come out with their AR-15’s ablazing.
Accused of the Mother of All Coverups, he has deep-sixed the evidence. But there are those who carried his water up to this point who have turned against him. A Democrat taking the blame for mismanagement is a non-sequitur. However, the hard evidence of a conspiracy is clear as day from night. When political enemies of all persuasion smell blood they go for the jugular. His political life hangs in the balance.
This conspiracy will not wither away. Either the Nursing Home Killer steps down or he will be forced from office. But those aren’t his only troubles. He is now accused of sexual harassment.
President Biden backs an “independent review” of sexual harassment claims against Gov. Andrew Cuomo after allegations from two female former staffers, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.
“There should be an independent review looking into these allegations, and that’s certainly something he supports, and we believe should move forward as quickly as possible,” Psaki told CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday.
Please accept our apologies. We misled you with the previous Trump speaking time which was erroneously posted.
The 45th president is due to speak this weekend at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference, more commonly known as CPAC. The annual three-day summit of conservatism is already underway, but you have to scroll all the way to the end of the CPAC agenda to find Mr. Trump, who is set to close out the event with the final address. He is scheduled to take the stage at 3:40 p.m. Eastern Time on Sunday.
Information about COVID-19 Vaccines for People with Allergies
Updated Feb. 25, 2021
If you get a COVID-19 vaccine and you think you might be having a severe allergic reaction after leaving the vaccination provider site, seek immediate medical care by calling 911. Learn more about COVID-19 Vaccines and Allergic Reactions.
If you are allergic to an ingredient in a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine
If you have had a severe allergic reaction or an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get either of the currently available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
An immediate allergic reaction happens within 4 hours after getting vaccinated and may include symptoms such as hives, swelling, and wheezing (respiratory distress).
If you are allergic to polyethylene glycol (PEG) or polysorbate
Polysorbate is not an ingredient in either mRNA COVID-19 vaccine but is closely related to PEG, which is in the vaccines. People who are allergic to PEG or polysorbate should not get an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.
If you are allergic to other types of vaccines
If you have had an immediate allergic reaction—even if it was not severe—to a vaccine or injectable therapy for another disease, ask your doctor if you should get a COVID-19 vaccine. Your doctor will help you decide if it is safe for you to get vaccinated.
If you have allergies not related to vaccines
CDC recommends that people with a history of severe allergic reactions not related to vaccines or injectable medications—such as food, pet, venom, environmental, or latex allergies—get vaccinated. People with a history of allergies to oral medications or a family history of severe allergic reactions may also get vaccinated.Top of Page
What we know about the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine: Timing, dosage, access in Washington state

A year after doctors identified an outbreak of coronavirus in the Seattle area, a third vaccine is expected to arrive soon to bolster the arsenal against the virus, now responsible for more than 500,000 deaths in the United States.
The new vaccine, which was developed by Johnson & Johnson, could be authorized for emergency use as soon as this weekend and ship nationwide next week. The vaccine could hasten a rollout that has lagged public expectations and has been hampered by supply and distribution problems.
And the Johnson & Johnson vaccine’s key characteristics — that it requires only one dose and remains stable in a refrigerator for long periods of time — could help health officials get it to hard-to-reach groups, such as those experiencing homelessness or maritime workers heading out to sea.
The two vaccines that have received emergency approval in the United States — from Pfizer and Moderna — require two doses.
If the federal Food and Drug Administration greenlights the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for emergency use, Washington state expects to receive next week some 60,900 doses, said Michele Roberts, the Washington state Department of Health’s acting assistant secretary in charge of vaccine rollout.
How the state will use the new supply of Johnson & Johnson vaccine remains an open question.
“We’re waiting for final guidance before we finalize plans,” Roberts said in a Thursday news briefing.
That guidance will trickle out this weekend and early next week, as independent advisers to the federal government assess data from the vaccine’s clinical trials and debate how best to put it to work.
First, an advisory committee to the FDA will meet Friday and vote on whether the vaccine is safe and effective. A separate committee advising the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will outline a general strategy for use of the vaccine, which state leaders can adopt at their discretion.
Data released by FDA officials Wednesday provides some insight.
Overall, the vaccine had a 72% efficacy rate during its clinical trial in the United States and evidence suggests the vaccine is safe and causes only mild side effects.
In South Africa, where a highly contagious coronavirus variant is driving cases, the efficacy was 64%. Health officials earlier this week announced that the same concerning variant had been discovered in Washington state.

While the Johnson & Johnson vaccine’s overall efficacy is lower than the Moderna and Pfizer mRNA vaccines, which both tout efficacy figures near 95%, the most important metric is how well it prevents severe disease and death, said Lisa Jackson, of Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute.
On that score, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine’s performance was an impressive 85% and there were no deaths among trial participants who got the shot.
“You want to prevent people winding up in the hospital,” Jackson said. “You might have more mild cases, but that is less consequential for the individual and for society.”
Why Did CNN & NBC Both Pay Leftist Capital Rioter $35,000?
Sullivan argued that he was attending the protest as a journalist to get footage to sell.
Politico reports that “Sullivan’s defense attorney even filed invoices with the court showing that CNN and NBC each paid Sullivan’s firm $35,000 last month for rights to video he filmed of chaotic scenes outside and inside the Capitol, including the deadly shooting of protester Ashli Babbitt by a U.S. Capitol Police officer
Sullivan also received $5,000 from a company called Left/Right Productions and $2,500 from Australia’s ABC, according to the records.
A federal magistrate judge ordered Sullivan “to end his involvement with a business he founded (InsurgenceUSA) that the Justice Department says promotes and glorifies violent protests,” the report further states.
Governor Cohiba of Albany New York is now accused on several fronts by numerous women of sexual harassment. In fact he had one of his handlers bring a young woman to his office where he pulled out a box of cigars previously given to him by Slick Willie. Romeo and Juliet, Partagas, Hoyo de Monterrey or was it Cohiba? Ask the Covid-10 Killer, he knows his way around smoke filled rooms
A former aide to New York governor Andrew Cuomo is accusing him of sexual harassment, saying he compared her to a former girlfriend in front of colleagues, made inappropriate comments, and once gave her an unwanted kiss “on the lips” during a meeting.
Boylan describes a moment between her and Stephanie Benton, another member of the administration:
Stephanie Benton, Director of the Governor’s Offices, told me in an email on December 14, 2016 that the Governor suggested I look up images of Lisa Shields — his rumored former girlfriend — because “we could be sisters” and I was “the better looking sister.” The Governor began calling me “Lisa” in front of colleagues. It was degrading.
She provides a screenshot of an email between her and Benton to support her claim.
During a holiday party later that month, staffers allegedly summoned Boylan for a private meeting in Cuomo’s office, where he showed off a cigar box gifted to him by former president Bill Clinton. (“The two-decade old reference to President Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky was not lost on me,” she says.)
What if Boylan’s claims are true? Does Cuomo’s alleged conduct constitute crimes?
Under New York law, indecent contact crimes involve groping someone’s intimate parts without consent. State penal code section 130.52 defines it as “forcibly touching the sexual or other intimate parts of another person.” Does Boylan’s account meet this criminal requirement? It most certainly does.
In the context of an unwanted kiss, New York regards a person’s mouth to be an intimate body part. This was the finding of the court in the case of People v. Rondon which noted that “intimate parts is a much broader term than sexual parts.” Citing previous cases, the court concluded that abusing a victim’s body and privacy rises to the level of criminal sexual contact.
