    Lawmaker takes first step to remove Columbus Day in NYC A radical Brooklyn lawmaker on Monday introduced a new state bill to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous People’s Day, as he slammed the famed explorer as a “murderer.” “This land that all of us inhabit is stolen land – stolen from the indigenous people who were slaughtered and forced onto reservations,” Assemblyman Charles Barron told The Post , adding “they should be recognized in replace of Columbus Day.” Barron described Columbus as a “colonizer” who “enslaved Africans and slaughtered indigenous people.”

    According to a new national Politico/Morning Consult survey, 2016 election buyers' remorse is more prevalent among Hillary Clinton's voters than those who cast ballots for President Trump. "Among Clinton voters, 13 percent say they would either vote for a different candidate or not vote at all," the survey finds, while that number among Trump backers is four points lower.

It's not necessarily all that surprising that there would be more agita and recriminations on the losing side of a major campaign, but we've been told endlessly that Trump is so...

    White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that raising her children has helped prepare her for dealing with journalists. "They perfectly prepared me to deal with the White House press corps," she said on ABC's "The View." "I get to answer the same question all day long, and I've gotten pretty good at saying 'no.' So, I think my kids have been a perfect foundation for my job."(snip) Sanders said Wednesday that, because her children keep her awake "24/7," she's constantly poised to respond to reporters' questions at any time of day.

    North Korea has threatened to fire missiles at Guam, a US territory home to thousands of US citizens and a major US Air Force base. What if the missiles fell short or missed the island? What’s the big deal? It’s “just a missile test.” That was the thrust of CNN host Alisyn Camerota statement this morning: “If these missiles, if they do this, and if these go into the waters off Guam, they don’t hit Guam, then isn’t this just another sort of provocation and a missile test? Does it have to be responded to with force?” View the video...

    There were nearly 5,000 weapons stacked high on rows of tables and jutting out of barrels inside the Newark Police Communication Center, where state and federal authorities announced the results of New Jersey’s largest gun buyback in state history. The amnesty program held at churches in Newark, Trenton and Camden allowed residents to carry in firearms no-questions-asked. Here’s what they brought. “Assault weapons” is a loaded term, but authorities say the buybacks brought in 129 semi-automatic and automatic weapons, some of which were illegal in New Jersey. “Many of those weapons are designed to pierce body armor, and getting just...

    ESPN made headlines recently for their latest round of layoffs, jettisoning approximately 100 employees, including dozens of well-known on-air personalities. In the immediate aftermath, accusations flew about why the self-proclaimed "Worldwide Leader in Sports" had to lay off employees. Many blame ESPN's perceived "liberal bias," pushing conservative-minded viewers away and for too often dipping its toes into "politics" (i.e. topics that some people are uncomfortable discussing but that may or may not actually have any direct ties to real politics). Those accusations were raised again against ESPN Radio's "The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz" when they interviewed comedian...

    A history professor at California State University, Fresno, appears to have advocated for the death of President Donald Trump on Twitter. Tweets from an account purportedly operated by Professor Lars Maischak call for Trump to “hang” in order to “save American democracy,” and say the only “cure” for racist people is a bullet to their head. The account is not verified, although the bio and interactions between the user and other Twitter users indicate it belongs to the professor. “To save American democracy, Trump must hang,” Professor Lars Maischak appears to have tweeted in February. “The sooner and the higher,...

In discussing how Republicans reacted to Rice, who it was revealed this week asked for names of Trump campaign officials to be unmasked in intelligence reports, telling conflicting stories in the past few weeks, Matthews observed, “Notice it’s always a female? Just a thought.” “By the way,” Matthews, whose wife Kathleen is interim Chair of the Maryland Democratic Party, declared, “this is all after the election....
