  • Hillary’s hypocrisy on the death tax: I support this tax. I just don’t feel like paying it.

    04/18/2015 10:10:15 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 6 replies
    Hotair ^ | 04/18/2015 | Jazz Shaw
    Earlier this week we took a look at the GOP efforts to repeal the death tax, including some of the political pitfalls involved as well as reasons why it’s still a hill worth fighting on. In a rare moment of taking a position on a policy issue, Hillary Clinton has chimed in on the so called estate tax several times over the years. She has referred to it as a “wealth tax”, which works out quite well for her this year if she’s trying to angle her way into a more Elizabeth Warren style position on the subject. So...

    Is another shoe about to drop on the Clinton Foundation, and on Hillary Clinton’s problematic rollout? Newsweek’s Rory Ross reported this morning that the largest individual donor to the Clinton family business has conducted trade with Iran, perhaps in breach of US sanctions. Ukrainian energy mogul Victor Pinchuk has connections to the Clintons that go back almost a decade, and financial connections to the regime in Tehran that go much farther: The fourth richest man in Ukraine, Pinchuk owns Interpipe Group, a Cyprus-incorporated manufacturer of seamless pipes used in oil and gas sectors.Newsweek has seen declarations and documents from...

    NBC New York ^ | 8:33 PM EDT, Thursday, Apr 16, 2015
    A parent and a juvenile have been arrested after an attack on a Long Island teacher that a group said left the educator unconscious for several minutes. Authorities say the duo allegedly attacked the female math teacher Wednesday at Alverta B. Gray Schultz Middle School in Hempstead. […] The parent, Annika McKenzie, pleaded not guilty to assault charges and is being held in lieu of $10,000 bond. McKenzie’s attorney, Don Rollock, told NBC 4 New York that the parent came to the school because the teacher put her hands on her 12-year-old daughter. “Teachers shouldn’t lay their hands on kids,”...

The parent, later identified as Annika McKenzie, 34, insisted in engaging the teacher for reasons that haven't been disclosed. The teacher was heard asking the woman to get a security pass and then calling for security before things got worse, police said.

    Two suspects are wanted in a string of air pump machine thefts at Brooklyn and Queens gas stations that have netted the thieves thousands of dollars in stolen money and machinery, police say. At least 17 air pump machines were stolen in the two boroughs from December 2014 to April 2015, according to police. So far the thieves have walked off with more than $49,000 between the stolen pumps and the change inside them, police said. One Citgo gas station's air pump machine alone contained $800 in change. And one of the air pump machines that was stolen from a...

While accurate figures were hard to come by, testing opponents, parents groups, and school officials from Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, to Buffalo all agreed the number is likely to far exceed the 60,000 students who refused to take the test last year.

Defendant asserts that he did so for reasons of artistic expression; he obscured his subjects’ faces, seeking to comment on the “anonymity” of urban life, where individuals only reveal what can be seen through their windows. After approximately one year of photography, defendant assembled a series of photographs called “The Neighbors,” which he exhibited in galleries in Los Angeles and New York.

One woman looks up from her phone and does a sitcom-worthy double-take when she notices their windbreakers, embossed with the word "SHERIFF" in big gold letters, front and back. That might be because few have ever heard of the New York City Sheriff's Office. But those who have know what happens next. And, not surprisingly, when they burst into a corner store near 40th Avenue and 21st Street, the clerk...

    Yet more tarnish has befallen the Silver name. Indicted former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver’s son-in-law was arrested and charged Monday with running a $7 million Ponzi scam. Marcello Trebitsch, 37, of Brooklyn, who is married to Silver’s daughter, Michelle Trebitsch, was busted on federal wire fraud and securities charges. Trebitsch’s arrest comes less than three months after Silver was indicted on federal corruption charges stemming from his alleged solicitation of $4 million in bribes and kickbacks. Like Silver, Trebitsch is being prosecuted by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. “Investing in securities entails certain risks, but should not include the risk of...

    Hillary’s made it official: She’s now a candidate for president in the 2016 election. Question is, can she win? The former first lady and secretary of state certainly carries lots of baggage as she enters the race, including but not limited to all those missing e-mails. But she isn’t expecting any of those issues to prove fatal. Her big fear — according to the Wall Street Democrats I speak to — is being stuck with (and blamed for) her old boss’ economy. That’s because the economy has never fully recovered from the financial collapse that President Obama faced when he...

One of his greatest “accomplishments” in turning around the dismal prospects of the state is the START-UP NY program which was ostensibly designed to attract businesses to the state, promote the creation of new businesses and boost employment....

    The indignities heaped upon suspended NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams just keep piling up, and by extension, almost certainly ensure he will not return to the anchor chair after his six months in purgatory are complete. The latest was reported Friday by the New York Post: Dozens of residents from Williams’ home town are demanding a tribute sign to their former favorite son be torn down. Thus far, Mayor Sue Skidmore is balking. The town’s welcome sign, which also honors a half-dozen other hometown notables (including Mark Twain), would be too expensive to replace, she says. …

    It’s never been a secret that the politically regressive “progressives” on the New York Times editorial board hate freedom. And so, in last Sunday’s lead editorial, they came out full square for a totalitarian state under the iron boot of Supreme Leader Barack Obama. The Times is concerned that, as the failed Obama presidency heads into the final stretch and his policies become a greater concern to voting Americans, frightened citizens, especially those that have never voted before, will continue replacing tangential establishment Republicans in Congress with robust conservative-libertarian-tea partiers. That is why the Times finds the return of a...

    WHEN my brother Michael was a Senate page, he delivered mail to John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, who had offices across the hall from each other. He recalled that Kennedy never looked up or acknowledged his presence, but Nixon would greet him with a huge smile. “Hi, Mike,” he’d say. “How are you doing? How’s the family?” It seemed a bit counterintuitive, especially since my dad, a D.C. police inspector in charge of Senate security, was a huge Kennedy booster. (The two prominent pictures in our house were of the Mona Lisa and J.F.K.) But after puzzling over it,...

    --SNIP-- It is a line of attack that echoes Republicans’ earlier questioning of Mr. Obama’s American citizenship. Those attacks were blatantly racist in their message — reminding people that Mr. Obama was black, suggesting he was African, and planting the equally false idea that he was secretly Muslim. The current offensive is slightly more subtle, but it is impossible to dismiss the notion that race plays a role in it. Perhaps the most outrageous example of the attack on the president’s legitimacy was a letter signed by 47 Republican senators to the leadership of Iran saying Mr. Obama had no...

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's team has told the Federal Election Commission that she continued her campaign even after endorsing Democratic presidential rival Barack Obama on June 7, a claim that lets her transfer millions of dollars from her presidential bid to her Senate campaign. The former first lady made the $6.4 million transfer from her White House campaign, which remains more than $7 million in debt, to Friends of Hillary on Aug. 28. That date would fall outside the legal deadline for making such a move if her campaign were to have ended June 7. Her campaign treasurer told federal...

    (Gay thrown off building by devout Muslims) These son of a bitches need to live under the sharia. I am so sick of this vicious and radical agenda against non-Muslims. This is how the left destroys America: dismantle and trash the pillars of Americanism, paving the way for the totalitarianism that the left so dearly loves. In the wake of the Indiana donnybrook over religious liberty, which somehow was transformed overnight into a question of gay rights, it couldn’t be long before the New York Times weighed in against Christians. Yet who could have expected the draconian measures the Times...

    Oppressive government regulations and taxes beating down Upstate New Yorkers have assaulted the region for years, leaving cities like Binghamton on the path to Detroit-level devastation. However, all is not lost. The hope of prosperity is evidenced in the success of less regulated and prosperous Native American tribe businesses in the state. The Upstate cities of Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, and Binghamton have experienced poverty levels upwards of 30% in 2013, all having increased from 2010 levels, according to U.S. Census data. Detroit sits at a 39.3% poverty rate with Syracuse, Binghamton, and Rochester right behind at levels of 34.6%, 33.3%,...

    The NRA Convention starts today, in Nashville, Tennessee. And so, rather predictably, the New York Times has started its day by lying about it.

    Reverence for the Second Amendment may very well be alive in the Empire State as a new report claims that nearly 90% of New York gun owners have not complied with the state’s new, draconian, anti-gun laws. The deadline for compliance is fast approaching as New York residents have until April 15th to register weapons deemed “assault weapons” by the New York government. According to a report from bearingarms.com, officials have waited for the estimated 1 million or so weapons to be registered, New York State Police officials are indicating that number of registrations may be as low as the...

    [ .... " Bayh, though, suggested the friction now could give way to better times soon for Democrats. “I do think with a new president, potentially new leaders, certainly for Democrats in the Senate --who knows about the House -- there may be a season for governing where people might actually find more common ground,starting all over with a blank sheet of paper,” Bayh said. “That would be a good thing for the country.”

    For months, White House hopefuls from both parties have been raising millions in unlimited contributions at upscale fund-raisers from Manhattan to Palm Springs, Calif. — all without officially declaring themselves candidates and becoming subject to federal caps on contributions. Only a few of some 20 would-be presidential candidates have even bothered to set up the exploratory committees that were once a time-tested way to declare interest in the White House — and that set off their own fund-raising restrictions. But two leading campaign finance groups charged on Tuesday that the spread of these unofficial campaigns in recent months was not...

    A New York Police Department detective has been suspended after a Brooklyn deli owner uncovered security camera footage that appears to show the officer pocketing nearly $3,000 in cash during a raid earlier this month, police said.The detective, Ian Cyrus, 49 years old, has been suspended pending an internal affairs investigation into the April 3 incident, NYPD spokesman Stephen Davis said Thursday.“That video combined with an allegation of theft is enough to warrant an investigation,” Mr. Davis said. “It’s good enough to support taking appropriate action at the time. The video is indicative of activity that requires more investigation.”Detective Cyrus...

    Alanna Moppins, 8, of Buffalo turns in a toy gun that will be traded for a nonviolent toy at the Delavan-Grider Community Center on Wednesday Most of the toy guns collected Wednesday at the Safe Summer Toy Gun Exchange would never be mistaken for real weapons. They were brightly colored squirt guns and Nerf guns, miniature machine guns and even little wooden rifles.But cracking down on water pistols wasn’t really the point. The Buffalo F.A.T.H.E.R.S. organization, sponsors of the event, wanted to get a more serious message across.“We’re not trying to take on the NRA,” explained Leonard Lane, F.A.T.H.E.R.S. president....

    A few weeks ago, an Israeli geologist met with a reporter from the New York Times in the lobby of Jerusalem's King David Hotel. The geologist brought along evidence. Just before Easter, the Times came out with his story. The geologist, Aryeh Shimron, claims to have proof of a connection between a famous ossuary, or burial box for bones, and a tomb of in the environs of Jerusalem that, he believes, was the final resting place for Jesus of Nazareth, his wife and his family. If he were right, his theory would call into question the truth of the Resurrection. The Times...

    President Obama on Wednesday embarks on a trip to Jamaica and to Panama where the formal agenda is summitry with Caribbean and Latin American leaders. But the powerful subtext will be the body language between him and President Raúl Castro of Cuba. Four months after Mr. Obama ordered the restoration of full diplomatic relations with Cuba, he and Mr. Castro are likely to share a stage, a conference table, a “family photo” with attendees and potentially even a one-on-one meeting.

    In the wake of the Indiana donnybrook over religious liberty, which somehow was transformed overnight into a question of gay rights, it couldn’t be long before the New York Times weighed in against Christians. Yet who could have expected the draconian measures the Times would propose? Either Christians fully embrace the gay lifestyle, or you will be coerced into doing so.
