    New York City's famous George Washington Monument in Washington Square Park was defaced with red paint on Monday as protesters gathered further downtown outside City Hall ahead of a controversial vote that could slash the city's police budget by $1billion - 16 percent of its total - despite escalating crime and chaos. In the latest symbol of police defiance and unruliness across the city, the vandals tossed red paint at the famous George Washington monument on Monday then fled the scene, leaving city workers to try to power wash it off. President Trump tweeted on Tuesday: 'We are tracking down...

    On Election Day 2016 I was in the green room at Fox News in midtown Manhattan waiting to go on the air, as was Ambassador John Bolton. I asked John if he had already voted, to which he replied, Yes, for Trump. Hes an idiot, but anybody is better than Hillary Clinton. Thats why I had my doubts when Bolton lobbied so aggressively for and became President Trumps national security adviser less than two years later.

    n a stunning plot twist, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman issued a statement Friday night asserting that he will not, in fact, resign in direct contradiction to an announcement that he was stepping down made hours earlier from Attorney General William Barr. I learned in a press release from the Attorney General tonight that I was stepping down as United States Attorney, Berman, said in a statement posted to the Southern District of New York Twitter account. I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position, to which I was appointed by the Judges of the...

    A career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name was busted for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood. The injured elder, a Bronx native named Geraldine, spoke to The Post on Tuesday after cops arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, and charged him with attacking her. I thought a brick hit me or something hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant, Geraldine, who asked that her...

    Amid nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, riots, looting, and calls to defund the police, a Harvard economist has found that proactive policing saves black lives. Defunding the police is not a solution and could cost thousands of black lives, Roland Fryer told The College Fix in an interview about his latest research. I think the streets are talking and we should listen. People are frustrated, he continued in the email. He sympathizes with frustration at big racial differences in educational achievement, life expectancy and almost every part of life. The youngest African-American professor to receive tenure in Harvard history, Fryer...

    A few hours after the Manhattan district attorney announced he would not prosecute some of the protesters who had been arrested during demonstrations against police brutality, the Police Department sent him a message: All the officers assigned to his office would be pulled off the job to help with crowd control. The district attorneys in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Queens made similar decisions and received the same news. Police Commissioner Dermot F. Shea said on Friday that the timing was unrelated to the prosecutors decisions. Resources were pulled from the entire department to cover the protests, he said. But to...

    In an unprecedented blue-on-blue round of finger-pointing, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, has blasted NY City's mayor, Bill de Blasio for allowing criminals under the guise of 'protest' to take over New York City and smash, burn, and loot the place into rubble. According to Breitbart: Cuomo issued stinging criticism of De Blasio and the NY Police Department, saying Monday evenings failed attempt to quell violence was inexcusable. The governor explained that he offered help from the National Guard, but De Blasio rejected the offer. My option is to displace the mayor of New York City and bring in the...

Everybody who grew up in this town has at least once ridden the rickety wooden escalator at the center of Macys Herald Square a building almost as iconic to New York City as the Empire State Building. Theyve made movies about them both. And so a city with 40,000 cops hasnt the will to station a couple of hundred of them between its cultural heritage kitschy as it sometimes may seem and an opportunistic mob? Shocking and shameful. The thing with anarchists,...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to accept help from the National Guard, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, as the governor mused that he could displace his fellow Democrat and take over his duties. Looters and others fomenting chaos ran rampant in New York City on Monday night, stealing from stores, assaulting police officers, and setting fires, amid nationwide mayhem taking place at or near protests over the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in Minneapolis police custody. Cuomo blamed de Blasio and the New York City Police Department (NYPD), telling reporters in Albany: The mayor...
