    As cops were being threatened and assaulted and the city reeled over the execution of two officers, Mayor Bill de Blasio prayed at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Sunday — then went into hiding. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton visited the scene of the horrific attack in Brooklyn and Gov. Andrew Cuomo paid a wrenching condolence call at the home of one of the slain cops, but de Blasio ran from reporters and was nowhere to be found after the church service.

    The comedian Chico Marx famously asked, Who you gonna believe, me or your own eyes? Thats the question I feel like Governor Andrew Cuomo is posing to New Yorkers with his decision to ban hydraulic fracturing in the Empire States portion of the Marcellus Shale. The governor and his allies most notably the acting state health commissioner, whose report served as justification for Mr. Cuomos decision say the move will protect New Yorks air, land, and water. For years now, New Yorkers have been besieged by apocalyptic claims made by anti-oil and gas activists many of them...

    While the bloodthirsty racist liberals exploded in joy over the deliberate slaughter of two New York City minority (for those who care about that, one was Puerto Rican, the other Asian) policemen, for 13-year-old Jaden Ramos, it was "the worst day of my life." And that is because his father was one of the murdered cops. #NYPD strong has a copy of his posts. (Warning: you might have to wade through some ugly liberal troll comments.) A year earlier, Jaden had wished his father a happy birthday with a Facebook greeting: Happy birthday to the best dad in...

    At a peaceful gathering of the Justice League, they condemned the killings of Officers Liu and Ramos, but also wondered why the slaying of citizens by cops doesnt spark as much outrage.A modest crowd moved East on 110th Street in New York City on Sunday evening. They walked silently, some carrying Anthora cups illuminated by candlesticks, others holding plastic tea lights handed out by protest organizers. A few carried signs: "IMAGINE JUSTICE," "BLACK LIVES MATTER," "CLAIM HUMANITY." But mostly they just walked, their faces somber, their hands shaking as the snow began to fall. The peaceful vigil was somewhat unexpected,...

    Townhall ^ | 12/15/2014 | Jack Kerwick
    In the fallout following a grand jury’s decision to not indict police for the death of Eric Garner, there is no shortage of libertarians who claim that Garner was innocent as far as the natural law is concerned. “Natural law” is an ethical tradition with an illustrious pedigree stretching back millennia. From this perspective, natural law is a transcendent moral order that provides the standard of justice for “positive law,” i.e. human legislation.The law forbidding the sale of loose cigarettes that Garner violated (repeatedly) is unjust. Garner “aggressed” against no one. He merely exercised his “natural right to dispose of...

    Amid the many explanations offered by New York governor Andrew Cuomo and his various lieutenants about their reasons for imposing a permanent ban on hydraulic fracturing in the state, one of them made me laugh out loud. We lack the necessary data, said New Yorks health commissioner, Howard Zucker. Ill discuss why that claim made me chuckle in just a moment. Before turning to that, lets be clear: Cuomos decision is not surprising, and its not very significant either. Its hardly surprising that a liberal Democratic governor in one of Americas most liberal states chose to ban fracturing. Indeed, in...

    Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner in what investigators believe was a crazed gunmans execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown. Its an execution, one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths. The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk...

Iraq War: No WMDs, 141,802 civilian deaths. Go to RT.com for the second opinion. RT.com (formerly Russia Today) has similar ads that feature former President George Bush with the same message.

An executive summary of the review released Thursday by the Homeland Security Department, reports the Associated Press, also concluded that the Secret Service needs more uniformed officers and plain clothes agents, better fencing at the White House and more training for officers. The report comes on the heels of several undocumented visits...

    National Review ^ | 12/18/2014 | Jillian Kay Melchior
    Thanks to an announcement from the state Department of Health today, New Yorkers will miss out on a multi-billion-dollar industry that has made other states rich. The decision, a ban on fracking, has little to do with sound science and much more to do with the political cowardice of New Yorks leaders, the politicization of state agencies, and the political activism of radical environmentalists. The story begins about six years ago, when Governor David Paterson decided to refer a politically controversial decision about fracking to state agencies, ordering a study while instituting a de facto fracking ban. His successor,...

So now its time to pander to Islam.

    --SNIP-- The new fence — constructed just inside an existing red brick wall and a wrought-iron fence ringing the historic property — was actually dubbed a “privacy fence” by de Blasio and first lady Chirlane McCray, sources told The Post. “So much for being mayor of the people. That brick fence was good enough for Rudy Giuliani and his family, and for Ed Koch and all the mayors before him,” a law enforcement source said. “They didn’t need a taller fence. That’s the same house where everybody else lived for years.

    A 22 year old Israeli Jewish man was stabbed Tuesday morning (roughly 2:00 am EST) in Crown Heights, outside the Chabad-Lubavitch building at 770 Eastern Parkway in New York City.

    A startled carriage horse took a jaunt around Central Park without any passengers or its driver. The horse became detached from its bridle on Monday evening and ran into the Manhattan park, following its usual route, the union that represents carriage drivers said. It was unclear what startled it. [] Advocacy agency NYCLASS, which is seeking to end the carriage horse industry, released a statement saying carriage horses and city streets dont mix. Its time to retire the carriage horses and replace them with something that doesnt spook or dart dangerously through traffic and pedestrians, it said.

    Wednesday, March 12, 2014 The Left's War on Horses Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog At Grand Army Plaza, beneath the golden equestrian statue of General Sherman, the horses stand, lazily flicking their ears, tasting the grit of 59th street and occasionally glancing about as a yellow taxi driven by an angry Pakistani wheels around past the Plaza Hotel, brakes squealing, an Al Qaeda friendly Nasheed or a little Atif Aslam, either sounding more unpleasant than the brakes, blaring through the open window. Feathered plumes, scarlet red, sapphire blue, electric purple, matching the colors of the plush...

    While Bill de Blasio backer Steve Nislick plots to grab the stables once his boy follows through and outlaws carriage horses in Central Park, Liam Neeson visited the actual stables whose 64,000 feet of valuable real estate Nislick has been drooling over and is plotting to seize under the cover of animal rights. And taught smirking liberal Jon Stewart a thing or two about horses. . .

Two issues high on de Blasios agenda are the creation of more abortion clinics across the five boroughs and an outright ban on horse-drawn carriage rides in Central Park. De Blasios animosity to the horse-drawn carriages runs deep, apparently. We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period, he said at a news conference Monday, according to CNN. He added that he believes the tourist attraction popular since 1858 is...
