Scalise: Where is the Justice for Nursing Home Victims & Their Grieving Families?


WASHINGTON—House Republican Whip and Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis Ranking Member Steve Scalise (R-La.) blasted the Department of Justice’s refusal to investigate deadly mandates in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan sending COVID-19 positive patients into nursing homes and long-term care facilities, resulting in the unnecessary deaths of thousands of seniors.

“It is outrageous that the Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly ‘must admit’ orders issued by governors in New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan that resulted in the deaths of thousands of senior citizens. Where is the justice for nursing home victims and their grieving families? These deadly orders contradicted the CDC’s guidance and needlessly endangered the most vulnerable among us to the deadly COVID-19 virus. Even worse, Governor Cuomo in New York intentionally tried to cover up the true death toll resulting from his mandate. Grieving families deserve answers and accountability. It’s unconscionable that Biden’s Department of Justice refuses to investigate the deadly actions that went against CDC’s medical guidance taken in these states.”


On June 15, 2020, Select Subcommittee Republicans sent letters to the governors of five states that forced nursing homes to take in COVID-positive patients as part of their pandemic response.

On June 25, 2020, Select Subcommittee Republicans, as well as Republican members of the New York, California, Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania delegations, urged the attorneys general of those states to investigate the origins of their governors’ deadly nursing home orders and the impact those orders had on their states’ elderly populations.

On March 12, 2021, Scalise joined Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and a group of Senators in calling on the Justice Department to continue its probe into whether state officials failed to comply with federal guidelines or requirements for participation in federal programs in their response to coronavirus infections among seniors and nursing home residents.

These filthy people need to answer for their actions. Where are the people in Washington, whom we pay to, to stand up and fight for justice for the dead. Unconscionable.

Seniors tend to vote Republican. These Democrats knew what they had to do, just in case the ballot stuffing and other actions didn’t work. They let Hillary lose, but not this time. Fair and free elections without voter fraud are simply too dangerous for the bureaucrats and elites to allow.

Obama packed the upper management of the bureaucracy with arrogant elitists, who look down on the majority as useful idiots, to be ruled by superior people. Hitler and Stalin both depended on their well paid bureaucracy to carryout the horrors of their policies. To save One Nation Under God, we need to root out these “communist” bureaucrats, who follow the examples set by subhumans like Hitler and Stalin.
China is planning to win a nuclear war with the US, while they depend on the well paid Biden’s to buy them time to buildup their nuclear warheads, missile delivery systems, naval ships, and aircraft.
The murderers of Tienanmen Square have no concern for the death of innocent Chinese people, who are regularly murdered, when it suits those in power.
In the new world order, the elites will rule with an iron fist, with collaborators in once free countries, who submit to China’s dominance as many once submitted to the Mongols.
Once China has consolidated power, these useful idiot elites will soon be purged, just as Russian communists purged most of their early supporters. In time, it has always been the goal of the Han Chinese rulers to exterminate all other inferior people, such as the Uyghurs and Tibetans, and give their land to Han Chinese.
Evil people have no concern for any afterlife, they feel the need to take all that they can from anyone, until one day it is all over. Xi would rather die in a nuclear war with his enemies, than die of old age. Just as God loves his children, the Devil protects those like Xi and Hitler for far too long.

Charles is exactly right, the enemy also known as the devil removed God‘s word from the public schools 50 years ago and in only two generations look at the mess we are in, our country is only savable through a righteous revival of the word of God that it was founded on. These corrupt politicians are simply an example of the way the enemy uses people to complete his work.

I’m SW Michigan and what our Idiot governor ordered should put her in prison for directly endangering thousands. A comprehensive investigation should be done in All states that issued said order – including real numbers of those infected and died as a result. Then turn it over to Attorneys General for prosecution.

In many cases, the most corrupt anarchy seeking politicians are attorney generals and district attorneys, who have been politically funded by Soros, and now release violent criminals and rioters and ignore violations of citizen’s civil rights. Violent riots justify disarming the innocent and ending individual rights to justify Soviet style order. The same elites, who were politically active billionaires and senior government officials, become commissars and rule over the inferior people. These elites sincerely believe that the people are ignorant fools and that only the elite leadership should control party membership.
A well compensated bureaucracy will control what the people are allowed to see and hear. Elections may continue with great drama, where the elites have selected the actors and written the script in advance.
