According to Page Six’s source, now that the election is over, Weiner has found his higher power and is trying to get back together with Huma Abedin, from whom he is separated, as they co-parent their five-year-old son. It was the same son that Weiner included in his sexts to a woman (of age) that lead Abedin to announce their separation.

The program is now bearing fruit as its first two entrepreneurs are setting up their businesses within the CUNY incubator.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo is on his unconventional State of the State tour around New York. January 9, the Democrat gave one speech in New York City and a modified version later in Buffalo. In what some see as a possible precursor to a presidential run, Cuomo talked about economic development and took a thinly veiled shot at the president elect for promoting divisiveness. Cuomo touted high-tech industry development in the state, ride sharing service expansion into areas outside of New York City and the move forward in raising the minimum wage. While many are saying the Democrat has Presidential aspirations,...

    New York state must stand as an alternative to Donald Trump, showing the nation that tolerance, progressive policies like a higher minimum wage and investments in education can create an economy that works for all, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday. Without mentioning the Republican president-elect by name, Cuomo, a Democrat, said it is up to New York to find a different way to address the middle-class angst that propelled Trump to the White House. His remarks came during a state of the state address at Manhattan's World Trade Center, the first of six addresses planned for locations around the state...

    It takes more than just a shiny apple to satisfy the city’s teachers union, which is spending member dues at a furious pace. The United Federation of Teachers has blown through millions of dollars on fancy catered meals, tens of thousands of dollars on Yankees and Mets tickets, and big bucks on trips to destinations like Orlando, New Orleans and Las Vegas, records show. And the big salaries are bolstered by pricy perks. Its membership increased last year from 180,145 to 187,157, thanks in part to new teachers hired under de Blasio’s universal pre-K program. That membership increase led to...

She was a New York senator from 2001 to 2009. During that time, her popularity peaked at 60 percent in 2001 and ping-ponged from as low as 47...

    Legislators are trying to make the already draconian New York SAFE Act even more absurd. According to this story from thetruthaboutguns.com, lawmakers from Brooklyn announced two proposed amendments to the package of firearms laws would limit how much ammunition New York residents could buy at a time. The law would only allow gun owners to purchase twice a gun’s capacity every 90 days. Since the SAFE Act already limits magazine capacity to 10 rounds, a gun owner wouldn’t be able to buy more than one 20-round box of ammo every three months. Theoretically, a person who owns a six-shot revolver...

    Bill Clinton cast his electoral vote for his wife, Hillary Clinton, in Albany, New York, on Monday, telling reporters afterward what a memorable experience it was. “I’ve never cast a vote I was prouder of,” a teary-eyed Clinton said. The former president, a Democratic member of the Electoral College for the state of New York, praised his wife for her perseverance through a complicated and hard-fought campaign. “You know, I watched her work for two years, I watched her battle through that bogus email deal,” Clinton said. “She fought through everything and she prevailed against it all.”(continued)

    Gov. Cuomo is sending in reinforcements in his war with Mayor de Blasio, planning to double the number of state troopers in the Big Apple, sources told The Post. And the governor isn’t stopping at additional manpower to make his presence known, he’s also having the state’s local bridge-and-tunnel enforcement vehicles painted in its signature in the troopers’ yellow-and-blue to make his presence more widely felt. As always, “it’s a pissing match,” a law-enforcement source said. Some of the extra state troopers are currently patrolling the Staten Island Expressway, after local Assemblyman Michael Cusick griped to Cuomo that city cops...

    City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito is pushing Gov. Cuomo and legislative leaders for statewide policies to shield undocumented immigrants from enforcement under President-elect Donald Trump. In a letter sent Sunday, Mark-Viverito said the state should refuse to spend any money assisting federal immigration enforcement and refuse to honor detainer requests, which are federal requests to hold unauthorized immigrants who have been arrested and turn them over for possible deportation. The city already has such a policy, which Mark-Viverito said should now go statewide. “New York should protect its immigrant communities throughout the State with a coordinated and comprehensive policy that...

    Queens State Senator Tony Avella gathered a dozens-strong crowd outside the Holiday Inn Express in Maspeth, Queens—the site of a bitter battle over the city’s effort to lodge homeless families—to launch a quixotic bid to beat Mayor Bill de Blasio in next fall’s Democratic primary, accusing the liberal leader of an arrogant “top-down” approach that ignores the needs of local communities.[snip] “It is time to stop dumping homeless families and individuals in hotels and motels throughout the city without support services and the prospect of stable long-term housing and without community notification or involvement,” Avella said. “It is time to...
  • De Blasio “really angry” with Muslim hate crime hoaxer because it’s really Trump’s fault

    “There is an obvious spike in hate crimes. We can’t have deniers telling us that the rhetoric of many people, including Donald Trump, didn’t lead to that.” De Blasio is enraged that this girl has cast doubt on the flimsy and fictional Leftist narrative that Trump has led to a spike in hate crimes. He is not “really angry” with the girl’s parents for shaving her head and publicly humiliating her, and showing that she is in obvious danger for straying from Islamic norms. De Blasio can’t be angry about that: to do so would be “Islamophobic. . .”

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Those safe Staten Island streets of ours are feeling less safe by the day. And the crime is hitting us right where we live and shop. Here's the latest example: A string of minivan break-ins in North Shore neighborhoods like West Brighton and Grymes Hill. The method is simple and shocking: There are vans where the rear windows can be forced open without breaking them. The crook then slithers through and takes whatever money or valuables can be found. You have to be pretty thin to get it done, but it's all too possible.

    Mayor de Blasio was hit with over $47,000 in fines for violating campaign finance rules— including having his partially taxpayer-funded campaign pick up the tab for a makeup artist for his family and a six-figure payout to his buddy’s PR firm that appeared unwarranted. The huge sum is one of the highest fine amounts hit on any of the 2013 campaigns. The Campaign Finance Board, in a determination released Thursday, levied most of the $47,778 in fines against the mayor for what it called “impermissible” post-election spending. The $21,159 fine for that violation largely stems from a $168,750 payout to...

    Officials at FBI headquarters instructed its New York field office to continue its corruption investigation into the Clinton Foundation following the election of Republican candidate Donald Trump, according to a former senior law enforcement official. The instructions ordered agents to “go forward” with their ongoing inquiry into the Clinton Foundation which is focusing on issues of corruption and money laundering, according to the source. “There were no instructions to shut it down, to discontinue or to stand down on the investigation, but to continue its work,” the former official told the Daily Caller News Foundation in an interview. He said...

    Shiva me timbers! A pirate radio station offering Talmudic wisdom and spouting Jewish fables has for weeks been interfering with 105.9 WQXR’s public broadcast in Kensington, Windsor Terrace, and parts of Park Slope, and local fans of New York’s only classical radio station say they’re fed up. “It’s public radio, I contribute to it, and I can’t listen to it because this guy’s there,” said Courtelyou Road resident Patrick Russell. “It’s the only classical station in the city, and it’s a crime!”
