    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Three people were arrested in New York City following violent clashes after a speech by the founder of a far-right group, and police say they are reviewing video and may make additional arrests. According to authorities, Finbarr Slonim, Kai Russo, and Caleb Perkins were taken into custody after police arrived at the Metropolitan Republican Club around 8 p.m. on Friday. The violence erupted following a speech by Gavin McInnes, the founder of the male-only far-right group the Proud Boys, who describe themselves as “western chauvinists.” Videos posted on YouTube show clashes between the Proud Boys and...
  • CNN's Cuomo: Trump Looked Like He Was Thinking Racist Thoughts While Talking To Kanye West

    CNN's Chris Cuomo took a swing at what racist musings President Donald Trump was thinking about when he hosted rapper Kanye West in the Oval Office on Thursday. Cuomo was also upset that Trump held a rally (Wednesday night in Erie, Pennslyvania) as Hurricane Michael battered Florida. Cuomo, taking an "educated guess," said Trump probably got a "warm serotonin flush of happy hormone" when he had racist ideas while talking to West, like the headlines he would get for talking with a popular African-American man. Cuomo flashed out headlines like 'Blacks Loves Trump' and 'He's Blacker Than Obama' as thoughts...

    Infamous cop-killer Herman Bell was among the parolees who voted in the Democratic primary between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon, according to the Board of Elections. It’s not known whom Bell voted for — but records show his election district went with Cuomo by a better than 2-to-1 margin.

    With the election less than a month away, Gov. Andrew Cuomo still hasn’t agreed to a single debate with Republican challenger Marc Molinaro. Critics — who include Democrats — say that’s not how democracy should operate. “The opponent is not Donald Trump. The opponent in Marc Molinaro,” said City Councilman Ruben Diaz Sr (D-Bronx). “Stop hiding! Show the people why you deserve a third term.”

    Hussain is listed as the owner of Prestige Limousine, which operated the 2001 Ford Excursion stretch limo that crashed Saturday in Schoharie, N.Y., according to federal records, which showed that four vehicles had been taken out of circulation by the company due to inspection failures in the past 24 months. Hussain became an FBI informant after being convicted of federal fraud charges in 2002 in Albany, according to the Albany Times Union. He was taking payments from immigrants, some of whom could not read English, in a scheme to cheat on state exams to obtain driver's licenses. As part of...

    An Ecuadorian pizza deliveryman freed from an immigration detention facility by a judge who criticized the handling of the case will remain free after the government declined Friday to pursue an appeal. Attorneys notified the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan that the government won’t challenge a judge’s July decision freeing Pablo Villavicencio. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, said in a statement that he wasn’t surprised. “The federal government is admitting what we already knew — there was absolutely no legitimate reason to lock Mr. Villavicencio up and take him away from his family,” Cuomo said. Pizza to...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked a female classmate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh if he was “known at Yale as a virgin” in a Thursday evening interview. The far-left anchor for the cable news channel asked this embarrassing question of Lynne Brookes, who attended Yale with Kavanaugh. “I don’t believe it’s disqualifying to have partied in high school or in college,” Cuomo said. “But him telling the truth about himself is a more relevant standard. Was Brett Kavanaugh known at Yale as a virgin?”

    Despite no evidence to back up the allegations of attempted sexual assault by Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the liberal media were eager to make them stick. Comparisons to Justice Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill were wildly thrown around along with suggestions those accusations were true. They were also hopeful for a better result this time. Disgraced journalist Dan Rather admitted as much during a Monday appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time. Disguised under the illusion of seeking “truth”, Rather admitted that the character assassination of Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork in the 1980’s was what happened to Justice...

They seem to prefer schtrong women, like Cynthia Nixon…and her make-believe friends in the make-believe hit show:In real life Cynthia’s quest to unseat New York’s governor Andrew Coumo was just squashed. Apparently even New York was not quite ready to embrace her insurgent progressive agenda.But speaking of schtrong women and make-believe, I see Lady M’s about to launch her multi-million dollar book deal tour. That’s sure to be interesting.Because if ever there was a woman who...

    Eleventh-hour campaign mailings from the New York State Democratic Committee imply Cynthia Nixon is anti-Semitic — prompting an online maelstrom of outrage and denials Saturday night, with Gov. Cuomo and the state party calling the mailer a “mistake.” “With anti-Semitism and bigotry on the rise, we can’t take a chance with inexperienced Cynthia Nixon,” reads the mailer, which says it was paid for by the New York State Democratic Committee. It goes on to accuse Nixon of being against the funding of yeshivas — a topic she’s actually dodged — and falsely accuses her of being “silent on the rise...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday that the state will file a lawsuit against President Trump and the federal government in light of the damage from Hurricane Maria that struck Puerto Rico in September 2017. [Snip] "President Trump never tried to help Puerto Rico. Florida got attention, Texas got attention, and Puerto Rico got the short end of the stick. That is not just wrong and unethical and despicable, it is also illegal," Governor Cuomo said. "We're going to work with Puerto Rican families and sue the President of the United States because New York is standing with Puerto...

    At their contentious debate Wednesday night, Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Socialist candidate Cynthia Nixon disagreed on just about everything, including law and order in their State of New York. Nixon said if she’s elected governor, she would prioritize “things that really make a difference in people’s lives” over law and order. The debate moderator noted that Cuomo has been criticized for deploying New York State Troopers from upstate to patrol New York City bridges and streets. “Would you continue putting troopers on the streets of New York City?” the moderator asked Nixon. “Look, we are at a moment where...

    **SNIP** Defending against her suggestion that he's a corrupt parallel to President Donald Trump in Washington and deflecting the odor of criminal prosecutions of people close to him, Cuomo tried to cast Nixon as a corporate donor herself who solicited "favors" from her friend de Blasio. "You're a corporation," he said, faulting the allegedly minimal way by which she disclosed her income tax forms. She noted that in his first race for governor in 2010, his disclosure followed the election. She said her business corporation is that of a small business owner. Also hyperbolically, Cuomo called agents of the Immigration...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) and actress Cynthia Nixon traded personal barbs Wednesday night during a tense gubernatorial primary debate. Arguments erupted over the degree to which each candidate has opposed President Trump, New York City's subway system, health care and corruption during the 60-minute debate . Cuomo is the heavy favorite to win a third term in the Sept. 13 primary against political newcomer Nixon, who trails Cuomo in every public poll, according to The Washington Post. The debate became heated following a question about New York's MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority), which Nixon said Cuomo had left underfunded. Cuomo was...

    A prominent law firm that formerly represented Harvey Weinstein handed over a $25,000 check to Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s campaign six days before the governor called off a probe into the handling of sexual misconduct allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, public records show. The hefty contribution from Manhattan firm Boies Schiller & Flexner came on June 20, according to records on the state Board of Elections website. Less than a week later, Cuomo called for a six-month halt of state Attorney General Barbara Underwood’s investigation into Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance for deciding not to prosecute Weinstein for a 2015 groping...

    New reports indicate the Cuomo administration tried to subvert information about a cancer-causing chemical in the water supply of the town of Hoosick Falls … and nobody seems all that concerned. Documents obtained by Politico show the New York State Department of Health dismissing warnings from the EPA, and refusing to alert residents of the very dangerous situation. Over a year ago, health department officials issued a ‘fact sheet’ indicating that “health effects are not expected to occur from normal use of the water” within days of a contradictory declaration by the EPA which advised residents not to drink or...

    In response to President Trump nominating pro-life judge Brett Kavanagh for the Supreme Court, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) is striking back. Citing fears that Roe v. Wade will be reversed by the new composition of justices on the Supreme Court, he launched an awareness campaign titled “Know Your Options."The campaign will combat what he calls “false and misleading advertising” by crisis pregnancy centers. In his press release, he claims he’s responding to “repeated attacks on access to reproductive health care.” Cuomo says the campaign will “connect women to comprehensive, confidential and medically accurate reproductive health care services.” Assuming...

    It’s no secret that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is no fan of the National Rifle Association. A mailer his campaign sent to New York voters this week proclaims, in bold letters: “If the NRA goes bankrupt, I will remember them in my thoughts and prayers.” There’s nothing wrong with the governor singling out a political adversary for criticism, or even mockery. That’s just politics, and the NRA itself is no stranger to hardball tactics. But in a lawsuit the NRA filed against Cuomo this spring, the organization contends that he did more than criticize it. The NRA alleges that...

Several volunteer firemen sit drinking water nearby. It's over 90 degrees out. The sun and heat are punishing, exaggerating the heaviness of their efforts. None of these men will get a paycheck for risking their health, and possibly their lives. But that's OK; that's not why they do it.
