New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo refuses to resign amid sexual harassment claims
"The really terrible execrable governor of the state of New York. Before he was accused The Washington Free Beacon points out before he was accused himself of sexual harassment. The governor of New York signed a bill that dramatically lowered the bar for proving harassment claims. Bar. His accusers would almost certainly clear the bills signed two years ago. 2019 says, harassment need not be severe or pervasive to be considered unlawful. Any action that rises above petty slights and trivial inconveniences can qualify if a male supervisor makes a female employees uncomfortable by asking her out to lunch, as one New York employment lawyer told the washer free beacon that could be the basis for a claim. Well, the governor's alleged transgressions went way. Beyond that. The bill also eliminates a key defense that Cuomo might have used in court, under federal law and employer can avoid liability if their employees never filed a formal complaint about the harassment Well, these women are complaining, but I do think some of this is simply a way of distracting people's attention away from the 13,000 or so people who died because Governor Cuomo decided That they would be sent to nursing homes after they were sick with China virus instead of sent to the many hospital beds that the state had available to it during the height of the pandemic, But today, the question came to a point when Andrew Cuomo, who had been asked over and over and over by reporters, are you going to resign in all the way along? He kept dodging around the questions. And I kept saying to my producer I sure hope somebody really bores in on this and says, Are you going to resign or not? Because it's like the guy knew that the biggest elephant the living in the room was the question. Are you going to resign? And he kept finding ways to work around it without giving a straight answer. And then finally this question and answer from a reporter. We have that sound bite. We'll get to it A bit later, Andrew Cuomo ended up by saying, We're not. He's not going to resign. He's not going Tol quit his office. Now let's take a listen to it right now. Is this your way of saying I'm certainly not resigning? I wasn't elected by politicians. I was elected by the people of the state of New York. I'm not going to resign. I work for the people of the state of New York. They elected me and I'm going to serve the people of the state of New York. And by the way we have a full plate we have covert. We have recovery. We every building. We have a teetering New York City. We have a terrible financial picture. We have to do vaccines s. Oh, no. Um I'm going to do the job. The people of the state elected me to do you accept that? Can you do that job when people are distracted by the fact that you've been credibly accused of sexual harassment by people on your staff by people outside your staff, and you've decided you don't want to. Resign. I think the pressure is going to build, and I think they'll probably push him out the door. Of course. I also said that about Governor Northam of Virginia on Gwen, He was caught with the black face pictures and all the rest of that, and he never left office either. So maybe I'm maybe I'm completely off base, but I don't see how Cuomo survives this. It seems even his friends on the left. Have decided it is time for him to go. He has passed his expiration date here calls

"Welcome back to the Lars Larson show and welcome the first amendment Friday one of my favorite days of the week because we open up the phone lines in every subject is fair game and as is true the rest of the week naysayers go to the head of the lines and I'll tell you what one of the best naysayers I've heard not a caller to the show but a piece of audio that I played just a bit later we may play it again it's a young lady who's trying to drive home with two kids in her car and she's a black American and she runs into a roadblock this is this put up by some of these protestors and looters and rioters and most of the people there are white people and they say we're here for you and she says no you're not here for me you're blocking the road I want to go home with my kids can you please get out of my way now that's the state we're in right now where there are American cities are being torn apart including Seattle but not limited to Seattle all kinds of cities around America that are being torn apart allegedly over making sure that we have equal rights for all citizens and so the question of how the president can interact with making race relations better I thought we talk with Joe Ron Smith who is deputy assistant to the president and deputy director of the office of American innovation geron welcome back to the Lars Larson show and how are you doing today I'm doing okay large happy Friday to you happy Friday to you as well I wish we could all be having a happy Friday but that young lady she was awfully angry that have the last twenty four hours and she she's just saying look you're not doing this for me you're messing things up for me and I'm wondering what the president is in a position where he's watching major American cities and states simply ignore problems the most extreme of course the one in Seattle with his Capitol Hill autonomous zone and the takeover of six city blocks in a major American city but the president has plans to go to Dallas on Thursday and have a conversation about race relations what's he planning to tell folks in in doing that yes we actually visited Dallas yesterday and had a round table and with the president presented was on his vision for America and to specifically dealing with disparities disparities for justice disparities for education disparities for access to capital or healthcare we identified is on on the president's commitment to investing in all minority serving institutions that that work on access to capital investment into minority serving institutions that work on health disparities home and also an investment into our police force to help them create a better police and community relations also that public safety is created for these individuals I think at the end of the day we realized that there there hasn't been a great relationship there we also know that many localities I haven't had the best standards and that's usually when you you run into problems and so we're going to create incentives for does best on best and class standards for police departments but also help the police with Cole responded on social workers that can deal with mental health or issues of addiction that a lot of police forces have been overwhelmed with these type of problems and so we think there's a way to bring the community together rather than tear it apart in the president and the uniter and that's what happened in Dallas United people from that the church is from the police department from the community on black white Democrat Republican because that's what America's all about people on the chance of the American dream and we're trying to work with the local leaders to create opportunity well Inspiron I I wonder what you think when with the biggest problems were saying as I said Seattle seems to be the most extreme example although it's not limited to that Chicago's got problems new York's got problems LA's got problems and yet these are cities that are run for the most part by Liberal Democrats in states that are off and run by Liberal Democrats and in the case of Seattle they have Carmen bass to doesn't seem you know from a distance like a bad police chief but she's she's been told give up just hand this over to people who are now demanding the defunding of police not not better relations but just get rid of them all together how do you how do you deal with a group of people that demands D. fund the police abolish them abolish policing but still deliver justice for American citizens who need someone to call when somebody's breaking into their house and two in the morning we know it's hard to account for that type of political leadership and that's why the president is doing a call to action to the people because I think at the end of the day now we have to hold our local leaders accountable when they don't want to leave no one wants to grow up in a community that's been ravaged and torn down or or stopped I mean we just there's been a pandemic and we're transitioning back to restoring our communities and getting back on to flourishing as a country and it's it's it's it's it's an interesting piece because I have no idea how you could not lead ominous situation then president plant paying close attention to it well in fact I I'm watching as the Democrats and I and I this is a partisan issue Giron I mean because I don't see Republicans out there saying let's let's get rid of the police and in fact even people like Joe Biden has said I'm not in favor of de funding the police and now one of the people on the at the top of his list who is African American Kamala Harris she's trying to juggle how to say it how not to say de fund the police but not to.

"Lars Larson show now in Friday's Twitter poll we asked for this should Amazon be investigating for investigated for creating its own house brands of goods I said no to that and explain to you why there are a lot of retail companies in America did sell products made by another company I gave to you for example your favorite local supermarket chain I'm sure sells coca Cola you can buy it almost anywhere in America and yet many of the supermarket chains not the individual stores but the chains will bottle or can their own variety of Cola and they usually sold a whole lot cheaper so what's the difference and then over the weekend somebody emailed me they'd heard my argument they said Lars are you aware that a lot of the big big box stores where you go to buy tools and lumber they have their own house brands as well I wasn't aware of it but apparently cobalt and I have some cobalt tools hand tools that are sold at Lowe's that is Lowe's house brand does that mean you have to buy D. walls which I like a lot or craftsman which I also like a lot for black and decker that I also like a lot no you can buy the house brand you can buy the name brand you can make a choice is it evil foreign entity like say a big box store to sell tools made by other companies as well as its own house brand of tools in the case of Amazon Amazon is a massive online retailer that sells products made by other companies that are not Amazon and then they sell their own version of that same item that is made by Amazon I don't see the problem within frankly I don't understand why house Democrats are demanding an investigation of Amazon they're claiming that Amazon is violating the anti trust laws of America I think that's a crazy arguments so I said no so did fifty eight percent of you only forty two percent of you said yes Amazon should be investigated not remember I can separate out the political background of people like Jeff Basil's the guy who owns Amazon from the actions of his store in fact I don't mind when times are our usual stopping to get say a coffee at Starbucks although I think they burn their beans Abed even though I know the politics of the guy who founded the company Howard Schultz our very very liberal even ran for president once that didn't last too long get it fifty eight percent no forty two percent yes brought to you by a mac the association of mature American citizens Hey mac has conservative values I do too I joined the group along time ago so should you just go to a M. AC dot US or call eight eight eight two six two two thousand six Hey mags better better for you and better for America listen I've been getting this set of emails and they all go along the same line and here is the line that came out this weekend and I believe the origin of it is a young lady by the name of Candace Owens I've met content disown I actually introduced her at a public event I know sometime last fall she's a very nice young lady but I don't think she knows what she's talking about so what did she do she began talking about the death toll from China virus as reported by the CDC and the medium that got going on social media this weekend is that the CDC has revised down the number of deaths from where it is tonight about seventy thousand down to about thirty seven thousand well why would they revise it down well let me make it clear there is a reason that they have mis read the numbers not at the CDC but the folks are looking at this including a right wing media guy by the name of Tim young what he did was he looked at some of the statistics that CDC has online how many people have died because of coronavirus in America about seventy thousand as of tonight but he says there's this other number in there and it appears to be the number of deaths and it's only thirty seven thousand let me tell you where that number comes from and why it's not the accurate number now do you want the current number as of today that is the CDC number of about seventy thousand but if you look at the national vital statistics system which is a government agency that tracks births and deaths on a lot of other numbers in the United States the national vital statistics system considers somebody dead to put it bluntly when the paperwork including their death certificate arrives at this bureaucracy in Washington DC and they've put it in the computer so they warned they warned that there is a significant lag in counting the number of deaths because they look at official death certificates where is the CDC tends to count reports it gets from hospitals and clinics around America quote it is important to note that it can take several weeks for death records to be submitted to the national center for health statistics and for them to be processed coded and tabulated so the warnings right there on the CDC website that set of numbers tends to lag behind the other set of numbers pay attention to that glad to have you with me on a Monday night you know the last few months have taught us what's important in life it's also taught us that we need to eliminate or change some things so the same for business what are the changes.

"Welcome back to the Lars Larson show until Thursday night we call a conspiracy theory Thursday night I hate to see conspiracies in this country but when they're there we got I done a fine Kevin Chavis joins me now who serves as president of academics and policy K. twelve Inc Kevin welcome back to the program well it's good to be back with the large SO two developments regarding corona virus and I'm trying to take a sensible approaches I don't wanna overly concerned people on the other hand I don't want to be to you know nonchalant about what's going on Japan's entire school system from elementary to high schools are going being asked to close from Monday until spring break late in March to contain the corona virus at the same time that's happening one high school that I know of in America in Bothell Washington closed down for the entire day because of concerns that a staff member I had traveled with now ill family member and then came back to work this week and so they decided to close the entire school today for the entire day while they decontaminate the entire school not that may be a bit of overkill but what do we actually need to do as a country if anything to protect our schools and our kids from this coronavirus threat well obviously the safety of our children is most important and many schools are taking a lot of precautions to make sure that the children are protected did dear following up on the ill behavior that or any signs of illness inch in children but but I tell you we've allocated twelve we run the large is a virtual online education program in the country so we have students who were in fully online schools and we have schools that is Prisco districts that receive curriculum from us we're in all fifty states in terms of the services provided to hundreds of thousands students in a hundred countries and we're we're just here to help I mean what we did during the hurricane Florence in North Carolina our our partner schools in North Carolina head head schools open and we roll students we did the same thing with hurricane in Houston in twenty seventeen I thank them the main thing is is parent needs to make sure they're in touch with their school local school administrator to figure out whether or not they feel their child is safe and there are other options up yet there are virtual online programs exist in the country we run them others others other companies too as well but the the thing is most important we don't want our kids to suffer any more from the anxiety associated with what may be going on internationally by missing out on school well I I agree with you and I think the online charters especially maybe an answer for parents who don't want their kids going to a Petri dish every day if they if they are concerned about that the other concern I want to raise and I know you may not be able to address this directly but in many of the public schools I've heard from parents who say something happened at school today that was a threat I know a threat against the school and when they finally identify the person who made that threat or if there was a threat by a student against other students they're often told by the schools were not going to tell you which student made that threat do you have a feeling that that's going to be the same answer that if you have one of these days we have somebody a kid who has corona virus and is identified when parents call the schools I think they're going to get the silent treatment from school administrators we're gonna say well yeah there was there was somebody here with corona virus but we're not going to tell you who it was and they're going to say that's not a medical privacy your student privacy even though being able ask your child are you in the same classes this student is is going to be a way for them to feel feel reassured do you want to bet that the school administrators are going to tell parents about that or that they're going to keep parents in the dark that's a fair point large and I'm going to save you know schools have to be concerned we run schools so we all are concerned about privacy issues of course but I'm sure there's a growing safety challenge that many parents face nearly half of the calls that we did on our Roman lines or from Kate from parents whose kids are bullied and abolition of those enrollment call center within five or ten minutes of them talking with our agents or teams they the parents break down in tears we've got a lot of fears out there that our parents are facing and the one benefit of it being in a fully online program or blended program when they make the school site a couple days a week is that the kids can continue to be educated while they're at home and it helps to allay some of the parents fears so I can't guarantee in the end under the circumstances you outline whether or not the school would be in a position to fully inform pairs of names of people they should be informed about the overall threat but I think parents choice and parent power me said parents should have options available in the event that they don't feel comfortable with the learning environment said he is currently chairman I agree with you on all that it's just that you know if I came to work and the boss said Hey I I work on one floor of a building is nineteen thousand square feet I often don't have contact with many of the people on this floor if I came to work on day and said Hey somebody here has corona viruses A. O. who is it if they told me I'd say I haven't seen that person in days so I would be able to be reassured that ball denied may not you know I don't have to be concerned that I had direct contact with that person I don't work near them or I don't share the same office space that sort of thing but I don't think we're gonna afford kids or their parents the same kind of opportunity it seems really stupid foolish because if you could do that perhaps you could avoid having all the parents they will I'm not going to take a chance I'm pulling my kid out of that school if you won't tell me is that child in the classroom with my child and and if they won't do that I think they're really short changing the parents are not equipping them with the information and you know we I'm angry that China kept a lot of these secret far longer than they should have they kept it secret from their own population and they kept it secret from the rest of the world and I think I can actually say accurately the Chinese government lied to the rest of the world now of course the World Health Organization is you know because in their backside all day long I don't know why but they're sick China's done a spectacular job they kept their own public in the dark during the lunar new year celebrations and they'd actually been honest with them they want to said not a good idea to go out during the celebrations because mixing with big crowds is a way to get as of today eighty two thousand people sick and probably a much bigger than number than that I don't want our own country to behave the same way and then use an excuse like privacy to say we can't share with you the information would actually tell you if your you know if your kids are at risk or not yeah I think that's fair point sonic clearly suppressed the information to their public to the public at large internally and externally and I do think that knowledge is power so parents should be able to gain access to information about whether or not there's a legitimate threat in their school and our community one thing that I think parents should be in touch with his local health officials in their jurisdiction in their accounting in their city and their state because they often will will freely share information about whether not there's a legitimate threat in that general area and then I also think that you know pair should look at it options if there's any had any doubt or question you may not get everything you want in terms of real time information from schools but I think an educated consumer maybe it is like it is apparent is is the best best course of action they should pair should be aggressively reaching out to local health officials and school officials and central office and school administrations to make sure they get answers and there are other education options available for them if need be in fact I almost think for parents imagine if your kid has corona virus for whatever reason I think it would be fair to all the other parents have you as a parent said you know what if my kid has the disease were gonna take care of it but I want a quick parents with the proper information maybe in this case parents will actually have to work around the school and in you know by being honest if your child had corona virus you want to call your friends and say look you're Boyer your girl was over our house the other day now we know my son or daughter has grown a virus okay we're going to take care of it we want you to get your child checked as well so that we can be abundantly safe that way the parents worth kids most at risk can actually go in and check with their family physician an anticipated but I have a feeling that the the public schools are not going to be very much help Kevin thank you so so much for coming on thanks for what you do add to K. twelve Inc online charter schools imagine how attractive that's going to be if we get anything like the outbreaks that we've seen in China and are starting to see in Korea and in Italy and in Japan you're listening to the Lars Larson show coming up the red flag gun bill law in New Mexico.

Honestly, provocative talk of very big deal with. Don't sit yet. This. Here's LARs Larson. Guys. I look out into the crowd. I just wish that the families of gun violence in this city got this much attention because that's who really deserves the amount of attention that we're giving to this particular incident is the Chicago police superintendent Eddie Johnson speaking about the jussie smollet case which ended with last night's rest and today's indictment of jussie smollet. He has he's now been indicted relatively minor crimes in the great scheme of things disorderly conduct. Although it does carry a felony treatment. Which means that if he's convicted he could in theory spend up to three years in prison. Welcome to the LARs Larson show. Glad to be with you and glad to take your phone calls on this conspiracy theory Thursday night. We've also got a Twitter poll up, and I don't mind at all if you vote in that should just see small ED's faked hate crime send him to jail because you realize there's a very good chance here that if he decides to go the plea deal. This man who faked not only a threatening letter against himself. That was apparently created by him or some of his confederates the two Nigerian brothers that he enlisted in this fake set of crimes, but also he staged the well, he staged the physical attack that he claimed happen jussie smollet on the twenty ninth of January claiming that he he had been attacked that he'd been attacked as he was walking to a sandwich shop during a polar vortex. When it was about ten degrees outside in Chicago. And that he was attacked for all of sixty seconds the time when he wasn't on camera. Although apparently, he had planned that he would be on camera, and that he planned to draw sympathy to himself, and as identified by the Chicago police superintendent, man, whose voice you just heard a moment ago that he had planned to draw sympathy for himself because he didn't think he was making enough money. Well, we've looked up his net worth it said that he is at least a millionaire. He is thirty six years old. He's an actor on a popular television show and by all accounts, somebody in that position. Who is gay who is black? Who is good looking who is telegenic who is well-spoken? You can imagine the kind of career he might have enjoyed in America. I've a feeling that that career is all but over at this point, although these days nothing would surprise me the NFL decided to keep dealing with Colin Kaepernick and Nike decided to keep him on as an image to promote their products. So I wouldn't take a bet the jussie smollet will not appear in front of a camera. Again, I think it's going to happen, but he has done serious damage to himself. He's also done serious damage to all of those people who are legitimate victims of crimes that are inspired by their race, religion, national origin, physical disability sexual preference and all the rest. So I'm gonna ask you straight out should Jesse small heads. Faked hate crime, send him to jail. I think he needs to do some time behind bars my answer to that would be yes. And tonight's Twitter poll can be found at LARs Larson show on Twitter. Lars, Larson dot com website, everything there is free except the LARs Larson show challenge.

Go to talk and LARs Larson dot com, you know, giving companies a tax break to come to your town. That's been a tool used by cities and counties and states for a long long time. But is it finally getting to a point where it's doing some real damage to us? I think you heard me talking about this a few weeks ago when we were talking a couple of months ago when we were talking about Amazon and its efforts to launch a second headquarters, they finally launched two of them one in New Jersey and one outside Washington DC in Virginia. And then there's the Foxconn deal in Wisconsin and a deal that it may actually show why some of these things can be a not just foolish, but damaging to individuals citizens as well, Matthew Mitchell is a senior research. Fellow and director of the project for the study of American capitalism at the Mercatus center at the Mercatus center at George George Mason University sorry about that Matthew. It's good to have you back on the program. Thanks so much for having me, you bet. So let's talk about this deal. Because when the president I talked about this that Foxconn, which is a major manufacturer in China was talking about building a massive new factory in Wisconsin. And I'm sure it was very attractive deal. The problem is they made a lot of promises. The local government said great will help you with it. And then they went out and used eminent domain, and what did they do to people? Yeah. So at this point they've already acquired an enormous amount of property via eminent domain. So they've taken one thousand two hundred acres from.

We'll talk about that in a bit. The state prohibits the death penalty for convicted criminals, but how does it treat the unborn?

"Peers LARs Larson. Welcome back to the LARs Larson show. Brad Kavanagh almost lost his job on the supreme court over an accusation from his childhood should CNN fire. A reporter who made some hateful remarks that many of us would disparage or disagree with but you can verified from just a few years ago or CNN right to defend advice, and all those isn't crazy things. She said in college and employment website is being accused of gender discrimination is prejudice. Or is that just marketing? Our tech expert will join us to talk about that. And the Trump administration has been accused of deporting nothing, but Mexicans but a reality star from Italy recently found out that is not the case. And by the way, take a moment to cast a vote. My Twitter poll at LARs Larson dot com. And at LARs Larson show, our Twitter poll question tonight, should social media platforms be held responsible. If people use those platforms to fund terrorism, we're talking about a specific case identified. By memory, which is the Middle Eastern media research institute points out that telegram, and what's up are being used to collect money to supply fighters in Syria with military hardware drones and that sort of thing as well as weapons food and clothing for fighters and for their families. I understand that those groups may go out and try and raise that money in federal law. It's described as the crime of providing material support to terrorism, and it can be as broad as simply sending first aid kits to terrorists. You're not allowed to do any of that, nor are you allowed as an American citizen to contribute any money to groups that do that. I think the social media platforms at choose to publish that should be held responsible. Now in yesterday's Twitter poll, I asked you this should people falsely accused of sexual assault be reimbursed for legal fees involved to college students, male and female who had been consensually involved at each other. And then the young lady. Decided that she regretted that involvement and she accused the young man of sexual assault. He was finally cleared of the charge. But it cost him twelve thousand dollars. Should he do the university or the young lady who made the false accusation pay the Bill I said, yes, they should be reimbursed for those fees. So did ninety three percent of you only seven percent of you said, no NAR Twitter poll can be found in voted.
