    A New Jersey Imam is to sit down with interfaith scholars and who will "retrain him" after two sermons in which he blamed Jewish people for Isis attacks and made anti-semitic remarks. In a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), sermons by Imam Aymen Elkasaby made at the Islamic Centre of New Jersey were translated from their original Arabic, prompting the response from the centre's president. During a sermon on 24 November, Elkasaby questioned the attack on a Sufi mosque in Egypt's Sinai province in which suspected Isis militants killed over 300 people. Elkasaby said it was...

    Congressional Republicans say they reached agreement on a final tax bill that will provide a new 20-percent deduction for pass-through income from farms and small businesses. The agreement, which the House and Senate are expected to take up early next week, also calls for doubling the estate tax exemption and will include key expensing provisions that farm groups sought to preserve and expand, lawmakers said. They said the agreement also would allow deduction of state and local taxes, including income and property taxes, up to $10,000, a concession to lawmakers in high-tax states that could also benefit farmers.

    House Republicans are moving ahead with a strategy to pass a short-term spending bill to avoid a government shutdown after next Friday, daring Democrats to oppose full-year defense funding and an extension of children’s health insurance. The House Appropriations Committee released legislation on Wednesday evening that would keep the government open through Jan. 19. It would also fund the Defense Department through September 2018 and avert automatic sequestration cuts that would otherwise take effect, as well as extend funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) for the next year. In addition to seeking to avoid a shutdown next week,...

    Dominick White has a bleak but clear-eyed view of his Atlantic City home in a public housing project known for crime and drugs. “I grew up in a bad neighborhood,” he said. “I’m trying to beat the odds and get away, and not become a statistic.” On Monday morning, White will start training for a career as a construction worker, a move that could be a life-changer for him and 14 other young city residents. They were selected for a 12-week program that will teach them construction skills, and then connect them with jobs at the Hard Rock Hotel &...

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid raised eyebrows at a New York City fundraiser hosted by Mayor Michael Bloomberg Monday morning when he referred to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand as the "hottest member," according to CNN. Gillibrand, who was seated only a few feet away from Reid at Bloomberg's New York townhouse, flushed with embarrassment at the comment, CNN reports. According to a Politico source, Reid delivered remarks praising New York's senior senator, Chuck Schumer, before turning to Gillibrand and adding that, "many senators are known for many things," and that "we in the Senate refer to Sen. Gillibrand as the hottest...

    In 1992, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) admitted he once sexually assaulted a woman in a column he wrote for the Stanford Daily titled “So much for stealing second.” On February 19th, 1992, Booker, at the time masters student Stanford University who wrote a weekly Stanford Daily opinion column, penned the piece, in which he recounted his own experience with sexual assault. Booker began by noting that “Telling one’s own personal story is often the most powerful way to make a point, or, more importantly, to make people think,” before adding “When I hesitated in writing this column, I realized I...

    Three of President Trump's female accusers spoke with NBC's Megyn Kelly Monday about their experiences, all claiming he took advantage of them sexually. Former beauty pageant contestant Samntha Holvey alleged that Trump made her feel like "a piece of meat," Rachel Crooks, a former receptionist, claimed he forcibly kissed her, and Jessica Leeds, a traveling saleswoman, says he groped and kissed her on an airplane. The White House has dismissed them as "false claims," as Kelly reiterated on her show.These women's stories, however, were enough to convince Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) that the president needs to step down "immediately." Should...

  • NY-NJ Gateway Project: Critical Fixes, Big Builds

    The Engineering News-Record ^ | November 15, 2017 | Tom Stabile
    The nearly $30-billion Gateway program to overhaul Northeast Corridor rail lines between Newark and New York City, an array of tunnels, bridges and viaduct over wetlands has two main thrusts: rehabilitation and expansion. These objectives are deeply intertwined—the project team must build new structures in the huge effort before it can upgrade old ones. That’s why digging two 1.4-mile, 28-ft-dia train tunnels under the Hudson River—an estimated $12.9-billion project component—isn’t just an expansion job but a lifeline to free a pair of 107-year-old tubes heavily damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and in need of a rebuild. It’s also why...

Hal Turner worked for the FBI from 2002 to 2007 as an "agent provocateur" and was taught by the agency "what he could say that wouldn't be crossing the line," defense attorney Michael Orozco said.

    Blog Post on Bank Stress Tests Adds to Worries Did a dire posting on an obscure blog about the Treasury’s bank stress tests contribute to Wall Street’s sell-off of financial stocks on Monday? Hal Turner, a blogger as well as a former controversial conservative radio host, wrote on his Turner Radio Network Blog on Sunday night that he had obtained the results of the stress tests, which are set to be announced in the coming weeks, and he asserted that the results were troubling. A Treasury Department spokesman, Andrew Williams, told CNBC on Monday that there was “no basis” for...

    A Brooklyn jury took less than two hours Friday to convict right-wing loudmouth Harold (Hal) Turner of threatening to kill three Chicago judges. Turner's mom and teenage son gasped and sobbed as the jury found the Internet shock jock guilty of a single charge of threatening to murder the judges - a charge that carries up to 10 years in prison. An ashen-faced Turner stripped off his tie and belt and handed his wallet to a clerk before he was led out of the courtroom in downtown Brooklyn. "I love you, dad," his son, Michael Turner, 16, said after the...

    For more than five years, Hal Turner of North Bergen lived a double life. The public knew him as an ultra-right-wing radio talk show host and Internet blogger with an audience of neo-Nazis and white supremacists attracted to his scorched-earth racism and bare-knuckles bashing of public figures. But to the FBI, and its expanding domestic counter-terror intelligence operations in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, Turner was "Valhalla" — his code name as an informant who spied on his own controversial followers. Turner's clandestine past was confirmed this past summer when he was jailed on charges that he made...

    Hal Turner stalked in front of Kingston High School with his neo-Nazi supporters in 2005, tossing white-power taunts at counter-demonstrators. That was just part of his legacy. He railed against President Bush and Jews, too. He handed out the private addresses of New Jersey Supreme Court justices. But some government agencies are OK if you work for them — and Turner apparently did. He was an FBI informant, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a group that monitors hate groups and extremists. According to the center, hackers confronted Turner on his Web site Jan. 1 and told him they...
