On Monday afternoon, former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo learned his fate, having been held responsible for the needless deaths of thousands of senior citizens who perished during the first wave of a largely manufactured global plandemic. He was sentenced to death after a 3-officer panel at Guantanamo Bay heard testimony from former members of Cuomo’s staff, nursing home and hospice employees, and the worker of a freight company who claimed Cuomo had threatened to bankrupt the company unless it converted 18-wheelers into a fleet of roving freezers and crematoriums.
From the moment he entered the courtroom, Cuomo was combative, belligerent, and argumentative, hurling obscenities at both Rear Adm. Darse E. Crandall and the panel chosen to weigh the merits of the military’s case against him. He admonished the Office of Military Commissions, calling it an affront to the criminal justice system and the “American way of life.”
“Never in my gubernatorial career or my years as a lawyer have I seen such a fucking miscarriage of justice. You people are really pieces of shit,” Cuomo said during a brief opening statement.
The brevity of his argument was not by choice. Had he the chance, Cuomo would have castigated the court until his voice went hoarse. But Rear Adm. Crandall quickly put an end to Cuomo’s theatrics and shenanigans by instructing GITMO security to gag his mouth and shackle his ankles to a chair.
“We have zero tolerance for staginess and theatricality in this chamber,” Rear Adm. Crandall said. “The witnesses will be heard.”
The first witness to appear on ZOOM was a woman named Michelle Steiger, a former administrator at the Cobble Hill Health Center in Brooklyn. She testified that on March 26, 2020, the facility received a sudden influx of alleged Covid-19 patients, 65 in all, from area hospitals, even though the senior living facility had enough beds to accommodate less than half that amount.
Ms. Steiger: We were told the patients had Covid-19 and ordered to take them into our facility
Rear Adm. Crandall: Ordered how?
Ms. Steiger: We received documents signed by Andrew Cuomo and the health commissioner, Howard Zucker, saying that they’d pull state funding unless we accepted all Covid-19 patients sent to us. Few of our existing patients had tested positive, and of the first 65 they sent us, only 7 were positive for Covid-19. But we were told to say they all had Covid-19, because we’d be better financially compensated, even in the absence of a positive PCR test. We were told to falsify medical records, to say people who didn’t have Covid-19 had it. And to expect a new group of patients every week.
Rear Adm. Crandall: But Cobble Hill Health had no room for that many more patients?
Ms. Steiger: That’s correct. In another correspondence, we were told not to worry about that because a pickup was to be arranged each week to remove existing Covid patients and replace them with new ones.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Replace them? Had they died—of Covid-19?
Ms. Steiger: I’m unaware of any patient dying from or with Covid-19. In our environment, people die, yes, of heart attacks and non-Covid respiratory ailments. But we were told to code all deaths as Covid fatalities.
Rear Adm. Crandall: I see. Certainly not all patients in your ward suddenly dropped dead. What happened to the ones who were alive to make room for new patients the hospitals sent to you?
Ms. Steiger: For the live ones, trucks, like the ones that haul frozen goods across the country, arrived every other week or so, and the patients were taken and placed in the trucks. I don’t know where they went or what happened after that, but these were old and frail people, and there’s no way they survived long in refrigerated trucks.
Rear Adm. Crandall: And the patients who had expired, for whatever reason.
Ms. Steiger: Different kinds of trucks, fitted with furnaces. The bodies were hurled into them.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Didn’t you realize the criminality of your actions and participation, Ms. Steiger?”
Ms. Steiger: Of course. But I—we—were afraid, afraid of losing our jobs and of other things. One staff member who threatened to go to the press was told CPS would take her children if she didn’t keep quiet and follow instructions.
Rear Adm. Crandall: One last question. Why transport people from hospitals to nursing homes at all? Why wouldn’t he just have had these alleged Covid patients picked up at the hospitals?
Ms. Steiger: I could only speculate.
Rear Adm. Crandall: The tribunal will indulge your speculation given that you’ve spent 25 years working in the facilities, but the officers are instructed to not consider your statement as evidence.
Ms. Steiger: Hospitals are enormous institutions with thousands of people, most of them pretty healthy. If someone did have Covid, there’d be a risk of the infection spreading across all the staff and patients. Hospital acquired infection is a leading cause of death in hospitals. The infirmed at nursing homes are very old and very sick and don’t have much life left in them. I guess it was no big deal if they died.”
Rear Adm. Crandall: Finally, did you receive any compensation for going along with this agenda?
Ms. Steiger: I did not.
Rear Adm. Crandall excused the witness and slid documents onto the table behind which the 3-officer panel was seated. The papers bore the signatures of Andrew Cuomo and Howard Zucker. One, which Cuomo had sent to 8 nursing homes in lower New York State, instructed staff to “assume patients were Covid-19 positive regardless of test results if they exhibited even a single symptom of the illness,” such as coughing, sneezing, wheezing, or shortness of breath.
“We cannot jeopardize the health of the general population. All patients exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19 should presumptively be considered to have it unless directed otherwise by New York State Health and Human Services,” Cuomo or Zucker had written.
After a brief recess, Rear Adm. Crandall introduced the next witness, Marco Miranda, a former driver for Brooklyn-based freight carrier BZC. He said he had been employed with BZC for 15 years and had spent most of that time hauling produce between the United States in Canada. In March of 2020, however, the company had given him new instructions.
Rear Adm Crandall: Mr. Miranda, in your deposition you said you were one of several drivers who picked up patients at Cobble Hill Health Center, is that correct?
Mr. Miranda: Cobble Hill and other places.
Rear Adm. Crandall: And that operating on instructions given by BZC, you moved patients from those facilities into refrigerated tract—”
Mr. Miranda: I didn’t move nobody. The staff at those places moved them and put’em in the truck. Me and my partner just did the driving, that’s all.”
Rear Adm. Crandall: But you can confirm they were alive when placed in the vehicle?”
Mr. Miranda: Oh, yeah, they were breathing all right. Some of them even flailed their arms and the nursing home people sedated them for transport.
Rear Adm. Crandall: How were they stored?
Mr. Miranda: Bunks, cots, 3-high were installed on either side of the trailer. They were put there and strapped down.
Rear Adm. Crandall: What is the temperature inside a refrigerated trailer?
Mr. Miranda: Oh, it’s like your fridge at home, we can dial up or dial down the temp, anywhere from 65 to -20 Fahrenheit. We were told to bottom out the thermostat.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Did you know that the persons inside, who were alive, would not survive long in those temperatures?
Mr. Miranda: Wasn’t my business. I did what I was told. Look, man, you didn’t cross the Cuomo brothers—if you did, bad shit would happen to you and your family. I have a wife and 3 kids to think about.
Rear Adm. Crandall: So you’re saying with certitude that Cuomo was behind the orders?
Mr. Miranda: We knew who was calling the shots.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Where were the patients taken?
Mr. Miranda: There was a mass grave site dug on Hart Island. We drove to City Island, and people was waiting to unload the bodies and put’em on a ferry to Hart. I never touched a single one of them. All I did was drive.
Rear Adm. Crandall: In your deposition, you said you saw Cuomo at the unloading site, is that correct?
Mr. Miranda. I saw the bastard. Even snapped a pic on my phone.
Rear Adm. Crandall entered into evidence a photograph of Andrew Cuomo standing beside six men in HAZMAT suits who were unloading frozen corpses from the trailer and moving them onto the ferry.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Just a few more questions. Ballpark figure, how many persons did you transport between March and September of 2020.
Mr. Miranda: Thousands. And we wasn’t the only one. We had five trucks going all the time.
Rear Adm. Crandall: And were you promised anything in return for your testimony today?
Mr. Miranda: No. I know what we did was wrong. But we were scared. Like I said, you don’t fuck with the Cuomo brothers. I just pray God forgives me.
The last witness to appear was none other than Melissa DeRosa, who had been Cuomo’s principal ally, aide, and mouthpiece. She resigned her position after many women accused the former governor of sexual harassment. She provided to the Office of Military Commissions countless papers and electronic files that corroborated the testimony of earlier witnesses.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Mrs. DeRosa, we know you’re reluctant to speak here today, but can you say as fact that your former employer, Andrew Cuomo, seated before us here today, did indeed profit from the actions he’s alleged to have taken and that he did so to foster an agenda—that agenda being to artificially amplify the threat Covid-19?
Mrs. DeRosa: Yes, I can testify to that. The documents I’ve provided spell it all out.
Rear Adm. Crandall: And do you know as fact that Andrew Cuomo is responsible for the murders of thousands of senior citizens who might otherwise be alive today were it not for his actions?
Mrs. DeRosa: Tens of thousands.
Rear Adm. Crandall: Were you afraid of Cuomo?
Mrs. DeRosa: Terrified.
After excusing the witness, Rear Adm. Crandall instructed the tribunal to carefully read the documents and to thoroughly consider the testimony it had heard. The panel sequestered itself in an antechamber and deliberated for three hours before returning a verdict of guilty on all counts, recommending that Andrew Cuomo be hanged for his crimes.
An execution date is pending.
