    Former Vice President Joe Biden ripped President Donald Trump and the Republican Party in a speech endorsing New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) for his third term in Albany. At the New York State Democratic Party convention in Hempstead, Biden told the crowd that the party Trump leads is "not your father's Republican Party." "They are not who we are. They are not who America is," Biden said, claiming that the GOP is sending a "distorted" vision of America "around the world." "That is hurting us," he said. "[With] this phony populism [and] fake nationalism [it's] time to say...
  • I.R.S. Warns States Not to Circumvent State and Local Tax Cap

    WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is preparing to crack down on states that try to circumvent a new limit on the state and local tax deduction, saying on Wednesday that it will not allow local governments to find creative ways to help individuals fully deduct those taxes. The I.R.S. warning comes in response to states, like New York, that have looked for ways to blunt the impact of a new $10,000 cap on the state and local tax deduction, known as SALT. The cap, which was included in last year’s $1.5 trillion Republican tax overhaul, hit predominantly Democratic, high-tax...

    Hillary Clinton had a choice between endorsing incumbent Gov. Mario Cuomo (D-NY) or his upstart rival for the Democrat nomination, Sex and the City actress Cynthia Nixon, who would not only be the first woman governor of the Empire State, but the first gay governor. Hillary chose the old white guy. It was former Secretary of State Madeline Albright who famously said in support of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, “It’s not done, and you have to help. Hillary Clinton will always be there for you. And just remember, there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t...

IÂ’m just irritated because I wonÂ’t be getting my morning dose of news.

  • What Did Gov. Cuomo Know About His Attorney General?

    The DC Caller ^ | 5/7/20128 | Joe Simonson
    A bombshell report came out Monday night in The New Yorker alleging a pattern of horrific abuse by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. As one of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s right-hand men, can the public truly believe New York’s governor had no idea about his attorney general’s behavior? Theoretically, it’s entirely possible Schneiderman kept his demonic second life far from his boss, but it’s important to remember we’re not talking about a single accusation. As Jane Mayer and Ronan Farrow outline in their piece, four separate women detailed his “nonconsensual physical violence.” Two of them, Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya...

    Governor Cuomo issued the following statement on the alleged abuse: "The New Yorker has published an article on Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, which reports multiple women making serious allegations of assault. No one is above the law, including New York's top legal officer. I will be asking an appropriate New York District Attorney to commence an immediate investigation, and proceed as the facts merit. My personal opinion is that, given the damning pattern of facts and corroboration laid out in the article, I do not believe it is possible for Eric Schneiderman to continue to serve as Attorney General, and...

    Founded in 1949, Hornady Manufacturing Company is a family owned business headquartered in Grand Island, Nebraska. (Photo: Hornady)Ammunition giant Hornady is cutting off government buyers in New York over an order by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to financial services companies regarding gun politics. Steve Hornady, the company’s president of manufacturing, announced on social media on Friday that the ammo maker will halt sales of their products to Cuomo’s state government or agencies in the Empire State. The move comes after an order directed by Cuomo earlier last month that cautioned banks, insurance companies and lenders against involvement with the...

    Governor Andrew Cuomo plans to ban single-use plastic bags, though he previously blocked a 2017 plan to charge New York City shoppers 5-cents for paper and plastic bags at stores. He introduced a bill Monday that would ban plastic carryout bags from any point of sale in the state. Garment bags, trash bags and bags used to wrap food such as fruit and sliced meats would be exempt from the bill. If passed, it would go into effect on New Year's Day of 2019.

    After Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders’s strong showing in the primary, many in the Democratic Party are able to read the writing on the wall: They need to move left. But who wants to step in? Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York. In the past two years, Mr. Cuomo - with an eye on national office - has rebranded himself from conservative insider to left-wing populist. Last year, he even held a news conference with Mr. Sanders to announce a “free college” plan. The truth is, the governor wears his new identity like a cheap...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a New York City native, raised eyebrows last week after he claimed that he was an illegal immigrant and taunted officials to deport him. “I’m undocumented. You want to deport an undocumented person, start with me because I’m an undocumented person,” Cuomo, 60, said during a bill signing. During the bizarre speech, the New York governor criticized the "extreme conservative movement" for being "anti-immigrant." He said his family, who emigrated to the U.S. from Italy, was constantly ridiculed with a racial slur that he said meant “without papers.” “I’m an Italian-American. I came from poor...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said on Wednesday that he will sign an executive order giving all parolees in New York the right to vote. The announcement comes after he noted that the New York Legislature voted down such a measure. "I'm going to make it law by executive order," Cuomo said during a speech to the National Action Network’s annual conference. “In this state, when you're released from prison and you're on parole, you still don't have the right to vote,” Cuomo said. “Now how can that be? You did your time. You paid your debt. You're released,...

Andrew Cuomo, arguing that the Democrat is devoted to his own self-preservation and presidential ambitions at the expense of the state. Molinaro also said that all New Yorkers are paying a price for the state's corrupt government.

    Clearly, much of the country is consumed by a mounting wave of fascination with the budding candidacy of Cynthia Nixon, the Sex and the City star who says she’s challenging incumbent Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York in the September Democratic primary. Hardly anyone cares. Our Jazz Shaw is from New York, so he has an excuse for this interest. He’s written about Nixon’s candidacy (boy, that phrase brings back stale memories from the 70’s, doesn’t it?). Here, he examined CNN’s developing fascination with her challenge. And here he wrote about her dismal opening poll numbers. What intrigues us is...

    Killer who gunned down NYPD cops in 1971 to walk free A coldblooded cop-killer who gunned down two of New York’s Finest — finishing one off with the officer’s own gun as he begged for his life — will soon walk out of prison a free man. Domestic terrorist Herman Bell, one of three Black Revolutionary Army thugs who in 1971 gunned down NYPD Officers Joseph Piagentini and Waverly Jones in a cowardly ambush, has been granted parole, authorities announced Wednesday. Despite decades of insisting that he’s a “political prisoner” who was set up, Bell finally convinced the Gov. Cuomo-appointed...

    NEW YORK – A former top aide to Gov. Andrew Cuomo was convicted on corruption charges Tuesday at a trial that further exposed the state capital's culture of backroom deal-making. A federal jury in Manhattan found Joseph Percoco guilty of two counts of conspiracy to commit honest services wire fraud and one count of soliciting bribes after deliberating for parts of three weeks. "Joseph Percoco was found guilty of taking over $300,000 in cash bribes by selling something priceless that was not his to sell – the sacred obligation to honestly and faithfully serve the citizens of New York," Manhattan...
