  • Uncle Joe Biden Meets Hollywood McCarthyism -- and Folds

    I don't know which is worse, the intolerant left's condemnation of former Vice President Joe Biden for saying Vice President Mike Pence is a "decent guy," or Biden's shameless groveling and apology. Biden committed his unforgivable infraction during a speech in Omaha, in which he casually alluded to Pence's speech at the Munich Security Conference in early February. He said, "The fact of the matter is it was followed on by a guy who's a decent guy, our vice president, who stood before this group of allies and leaders and said, 'I'm here on behalf of President Trump,' and there...

    Last month, at John Jay College in New York City, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the states new red flag gun law, which will make it easier for officials to confiscate guns from people deemed an extreme risk to themselves or others. Joining Cuomo was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who described the law as imperative to the survival of our children. Cuomo said that when it comes to gun violence, something has to be done because we are literally losing human life. Cuomo and Pelosi invoked mass shootings to explain why the red-flag law is necessary. But mass shootings on the...

    New York City is headed for financial ruin and could go bankrupt for the first time in 40 years, financial experts say. Financial experts predict that there are already signs the city is headed for financial disaster, as many individuals and businesses are leaving the city for lower tax areas and city government spending is at an all-time high. The last time the city came close to filing for bankruptcy was in 1975 when former President Gerald Ford refused to give the city a bailout package to settle its debt. The city is running a deficit and could be in...

    FULL TITLE: Tax collectors chase rich New Yorkers moving to low-tax states. Auditors inspect cell records, even your dogs vet bills The cat-and-mouse game between state tax collectors and wealthy New Yorkers who are moving to Florida has reached new levels and gone high tech. New federal tax laws limiting the deduction of state and local income taxes have created incentives for wealthy New Yorkers to move to Florida or other lower-tax states. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo last month blamed wealth flight for the states $2.3 billion revenue shortfall in December and January. Tax the rich, tax the...
  • As residents flee New York's high taxes, state uses intrusive audits to get cash from defectors

    New York state goes to extraordinary lengths to catch wealthy residents who try to flee its burdensome taxes, leaving a gaping hole in the states treasury. The aggressive approach by state tax collectors comes as the Empire State faces a $2.3 billion budget deficit that even Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo called as serious as a heart attack. Cuomo, a vocal critic of President Trump, blamed congressional Republicans for passing tax reforms that reduced the state and local tax deduction Americans can take on their annual income tax forms -- meaning residents of high-tax blue states like New York have been...

    Former vice president Joe Biden was in Omaha at the Forum in Global Leadership at the University of Nebraska-Omaha yesterday when he said a kind word about our devout Christian Vice President Mike Pence. Daily Caller: Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday described current Vice President Mike Pence as “a decent guy,” but then quickly backtracked following criticism from actress Cynthia Nixon. Biden made the comment while speaking at an event in Omaha, Nebraska. The remark provoked a quick backlash online from left-wingers. Nixon addressed Biden in a tweet, writing “you’ve just called America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader ‘a decent guy.’ Please consider...

    If you thought the 2016 U.S. presidential election was ugly, you havent seen anything yet. If an interaction this week between former Vice President Joe Biden and actress Cynthia Nixon serves as an indicator, the upcoming 2020 election is going to be far nastier, personal, and vicious. Biden, whos reportedly mulling yet another White House bid, spoke Thursday at the Chuck Hagel Forum in Global Leadership at the University of Nebraska Omaha. During his address, Biden touched on the international communitys reaction to Pences speech this year at the Munich Security Conference.

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is trying to win back Amazon by making calls to executives, including Jeff Bezos, according to The New York Times. Cuomo is upset with local politicians who had opposed the deal with Amazon. Amazon abandoned its plans to build half of its new headquarters in New York City earlier this month. Several local New York leaders will publish an open letter in the Times, asking Amazon to come back. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been pleading with Amazon executives, including CEO Jeff Bezos, to reconsider their decision to abandon plans to build a new...

    Former Vice President Joe Bidens tendency to talk about his good relationships with Republicans landed him in trouble Thursday when he called his successor, Mike Pence, a decent guy. The comment was quickly criticized by fellow Democrats, including actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, who tweeted that Biden had complimented Americas most anti-LGBT elected leader, forcing Biden to walk back his comment. Youre right, Cynthia. I was making a point in a foreign policy context, that under normal circumstances a Vice President wouldnt be given a silent reaction on the world stage, Biden tweeted. But there is nothing decent about being...

    MILWAUKEE, Wis., February 20, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) Archbishop Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee condemned Catholics in government who approve radical abortion policies but also blamed Catholic voters who vote for anti-life politicians. Archbishop Listecki noted that New York approved a law that allows the abortion of babies right up to the moment of birth and after. As some have explained, he wrote, even if the attempted abortion is botched and the baby born alive, there would be a right under the law to euthanize the baby. Is this the witness to Christianity and its teaching that our forefathers envisioned for our...

    New York City is expensive. From parking to hotels to Broadway tickets, the city has a way of leaving the wallet lighter for any visitor. But its poised to get even pricier if a controversial new congestion fee comes to fruition. With Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomos backing, the proposed charge would be imposed at all Manhattan points of entry below 60th Street. While the price has not been set in stone, a report commissioned by Cuomos office recommends cars entering Manhattan during peak hours be charged $11.52, and trucks be charged $25.34 on top of any bridge tolls.

    Last week, there was the pitiful scene of Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York begging President Trump to restore a tax provision which unfairly benefitted New Yorkers. It seems that many high-income New Yorkers have been moving their tax homes to Florida, undermining the New York tax base. Those who live in New York City may be paying state and local income tax rates, in addition to the federal tax, of over 12 percent, giving some an overall tax burden of approximately 50 percent. Florida imposes no state and local income taxes in addition to the federal income tax ...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared victory when Amazon announced Thursday that it would not build a second headquarters (known as HQ2) in Queens, New York. Gov. Andrew Cuomo called it a lost economic opportunity and blamed a small group [of] politicians [who] put their own narrow political interests above their community.The dispute between the two Democrats lays bare a divide over the plan to offer $2.8 billion in tax breaks for Amazon to establish a major presence in New York City. On one side, old hands like Cuomo; on the other, the newly insurgent, left-leaning wing represented by Ocasio-Cortez.Today was the...

    Back in the day, my native New York State feasted on the iconic I♡NY ad campaign, enticing Americans to drop in and spend their dollars in the Big Apple. But now, we’re being treated to the spectacle of the state’s governor selling… not New York, but Florida! In a recent press conference, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blamed a $2.3 billion budget deficit in New York on the compounding effect of federal tax reform on the state’s sky-high taxes. And according to the Wall Street Journal, “(Cuomo) specifically mentioned Florida as an attractive option for New Yorkers who are unhappy...

    New York State managed to draw significant national media attention this week when Amazon decided to cancel its plan to open a new HQ in Queens. AOC, who apparently now runs the Democratic Party, immediately declared victory, having ensured that a caravan of tens of thousands of new, well-paying jobs wouldn’t invade the area. But as difficult as it may be to believe, that wasn’t the worst economic news New Yorkers had to face.The less reported story had to do with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s plan to save the upstate region by investing in “green technology” companies, presumably also bringing...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo lambasted politicians such as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others overAmazon's decision to leave New York City. Opponents of the deal with the tech giant had "put their own narrow political interests above their community," he said. "[A] small group [of] politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community -- which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City -- the state's economic future and the best interests of the people of this state," Cuomo said in the statement, which did not mention Ocasio-Cortez or other lawmakers by name.

    (CNN)Donald Trump is, by all measures, going to have a very difficult time winning a second term next November. He lost the popular vote in 2016 by almost 3 million votes. He's a deeply polarizing figure whose job approval ratings have never crested 50% in his presidency to date. He could face a serious primary challenge. And yet, in the last two weeks, Democrats have handed Trump two issues on a golden platter -- and it's already clear he is seizing on them. Bigly. 1) In New York, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the Reproductive Health Act, which,...
