    Gov. Cuomo issued a travel ban Saturday, shutting down roads and some train service as a killer blizzard bears down on New York City.

MTA will also shutter service for exterior subway routes at 4 p.m., Cuomo said. The massive blizzard will go down as one of the five worst in city history, Mayor de Blasio said Saturday.

    Sen. Ted Cruz’s attack on “ New York values” has attracted the ire of a prominent New Yorker: Gov. Andrew Cuomo. In three TV interviews on Friday, the morning after the most recent GOP presidential debate, Mr. Cuomo, a Democrat, excoriated Mr. Cruz, the Texas senator, for his comments the previous evening. “We’re not judgmental, negative and hostile, the way Cruz was,” Mr. Cuomo told NY1. “In one, 30-second sound-bite, he was offensive to gays, he was offensive to women, he offended 18 million New Yorkers — one of the largest Congressional delegations, by the way, in the country.” A...

It appears that the big investigation that was announced for January is now over, and of course 'no corruption could be found' according to the investigators- http://poststar.com/ap/national/no-crime-found-in-shutdown-of-anti-corruption-panel/article_c577fe47-a397-5996-a0d8-972acd7d0892.html

    A man suspected of supporting the Islamic State and planning a New Year's Eve attack in Rochester became a Muslim while serving in a state prison, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said today. Federal prosecutors on Wednesday charged Emanuel Lutchman, 25, of Rochester, with attempting to provide material support to terrorists. The governor said Lutchman had served time for robbery in Attica, which is home to the state-run Wyoming Correctional Facility. Cuomo said the man "became radicalized" on the Internet. The federal complaint says Lutchman is a self-professed convert to Islam who claimed to receive direction from an overseas ISIS member and...

Three sources are confirming that Bharara intends to indict Governor Andrew Cuomo on January 2nd -- along with a half dozen associates and former staffers -- on public corruption, racketeering, conspiracy, and honest services fraud. The Chronicle is unable to confirm widespread rumors that the former...

    Just say no, Obama. Flaming water, poisoned air and destroyed lives thats what I found when I traveled to Dimock, Pa., in 2009 to see the impacts of fracking firsthand. Six years later, this tragic story is one shared by countless Americans, too many of them with no choice in the matter. Ten years after the Bush-Cheney administration exempted fracking from key parts of some of our nations most important environmental and public health laws, including the Safe Drinking Water Act, Clean Water Act and Clean Air Act, the science is finally catching up to the process and...

    Two months ago, Action News brought you the story about one local organization researching into a possible secession for 15 towns in Upstate New York to Pennsylvania. Governor Andrew Cuomos (D) decision to ban hydraulic fracking in New York compelled the Upstate New York Towns Association to look into the idea. This month, the organization is releasing more information on the matter. Carolyn Price, president of the Upstate New York Towns Association, shared the groups findings with Action News exclusively this week. Price said Upstate New York is currently in an economic death spiral. She attributes her statement to various...

    Be careful what you wish for. So goes one of the older bits of human wisdom. Question. If the OConnor family of Walkerton, Indiana has been forced to close their family pizza business Memories, as noted here at TMZ, because their young daughter said in response to an unsolicited media question that the business wouldnt cater a gay wedding because of their religious beliefs? And the business has never, in fact, catered any wedding? Then why shouldnt this standard of questioning religious beliefs be applied to rich and famous liberal television anchors? Witch hunts never end well. And the current...

    Automatically deleting email after 90 days could lead to the accidental disposal of important records, the head of New York's Committee on Open Government told Capital, as the Cuomo administration presses ahead with its controversial new policy.Robert Freeman, who has worked for the committee since it was founded in 1974, said there shouldn't be a fixed time governing when records are saved or discarded.As Capital reported, the Cuomo administration last week fully implemented a policy of deleting any email not proactively saved for retention after 90 days. The result was a mass purge of messages in the inboxes of rank-and-file...

    The National Review ^ | March 5, 2015 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    There is no Plan B for 2016. Ill say it, happily: Democrats should be worried about Hillary Clinton, and moderately panicked about the immediate future of both their party and their cause. This is not, of course, because Hillarys latest scandale du jour is in any practical way going to disqualify her; and nor is it because leftward-leaning voters are likely to recall anything more from this rather awkward period in time than that the Clintons are as perennially sleazy as they ever were. Rather, it is because the last few days have underscored just how tenuous the Lefts grip...

    Anthony Weiner cant stop getting himself into trouble on social media. The disgraced ex-congressman ignited a juvenile Twitter war with Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Thursday when Weiner poked fun at the governors decision last month to shut down the transit system Jan. 26 in preparation for the blizzard that wasnt. Sundays gonna be cold. Governor Cuomo will soon be closing the subway, tweeted Weiner, who in 2011 resigned in disgrace over a sexting scandal. The governors staffers werent going to let Weiners crack pass, and fired back. Yes, it is going to be cold. A good reason to keep your...

    During a heated discussion over gay marriage, CNN morning Anchor Chris Cuomo opined that the unalienable rights endowed to all Americans do not come from God. Cuomo was debating Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore on the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. Near the end of the back-and-forth and after Moore argued that rights cannot be handed down by men, Cuomo blurted out:Our rights do not come from God, your honor, and you know that. They come from man... Thats your faith, thats my faith, but thats not our country. Our laws come from collective agreement and compromise.
