    In my part of the world, Trump doesn't matter. I've got the hat, and I'm voting for him, but it doesn't matter. As a conservative in upstate New York, my statewide vote doesn't mean anything, it is dilluted and destroyed by teeming hordes of New York City Democrats. So my vote for Donald Trump, just like my vote against Chuck Schumer, isn't going to move the needle. I lose. So I need to focus on where I can win, and where America needs me to win. In upstate New York, particularly in that broad swath from the east suburbs of...

    Many of the Republicans who will be voting for Donald Trump next month do not like him but they despise Hillary Clinton even more. He certainly wasn't my first choice. I wanted Rick Perry and when he dropped out, I was sure the winner would be either Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio. But as the primary process continued and polling became the operative tool, I began to suspect that the whole thing was rigged. When Gov. John Kasich came in as a late candidate that pushed Perry into the second tier debate group, my suspicions were confirmed that the media...

    There is apparently nothing wrong with America that can’t be blamed on Donald Trump. He is single-handedly destroying the Republican Party, trashing presidential debates and spoiling the reputation of locker-room talk. And — breaking news alert! — Trump is even changing journalism. His habit of saying things that nobody ever said before is forcing reporters to unleash their partisan views instead of just giving the facts. Some of these charges may be true, but the one about Trump changing journalism is demonstrably false. All the more so because it comes from the editor of The New York Times, who happens...

On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

He made good on his word Saturday night when the Times published Trump tax documents from 1995, which show the Republican presidential nominee claimed losses of $916 million that year — enough to avoid paying federal income taxes for as many as 18 years afterward. Federal law makes it illegal to publish an unauthorized tax return: It shall be unlawful for any person to whom any return or return information (as...

Had the bomber chosen a simple black or solid hue wheeled suitcase, the two men who happened by might not have even noticed it sitting on a dimly lit patch of pavement on the uptown side of West 27th Street. “They might have just walked right on by,” a high-ranking cop said on Monday. But the wheelie bag the bomber left had an eye-catching pattern whose multi colors included...

    CNN has been heavily criticized over several incidents where the network selectively edited content, to include a glaring example just this weekend regarding a statement from Hillary Clinton in response to an explosion that rocked a Manhattan neighborhood Saturday, but that did not stop Jake Tapper from going to the well one more time. The “State of the Union” host was interviewing New Jersey Governor Chris Christie on Sunday when he referenced “a contrast” between Clinton and rival Donald Trump in commenting on the explosion in New York, noting that Trump said it was a bomb within minutes, while Clinton...
