    Cornell University Football Coach Roy Istvan apologized to students who were offended by an image he tweeted: an image of two of his players wearing sombreros. Why were they wearing sombreros? Istvan awards the big hat to the player or players who best represented team spirit on the field after a game. This practice has displeased some members of MEChA de Cornell, a Mexican student group. "They're appropriating a culture that isn't theirs and using it as a joke," wrote one student on MEChA's Facebook page, according to Campus Reform. "It's disgusting and I'm ashamed that you can't see that."...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 9/21/16 | Robert Spencer
    Sadiq Khan said attacks such as the jihad bombing in Chelsea were "part and parcel" of life in a big city. "It is a reality I'm afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things." He also criticized Donald Trump for saying it was time to "get tough" on terrorism. Sadiq Khan is not going to get tough on jihad terrorism. He appears to be much more concerned about those who want to do so than he is about the jihad terrorists themselves. He wants you to get...

    A new poll shows Clinton’s favorability has recently dipped among Jewish voters in New York, although she still has an overall lead in the community and in the state. The study conducted last week by Siena College Research Institute showed Clinton’s lead sliding from 51 percent in August to 45 percent, while Trump’s support grew from 25 percent to 31 percent. Although Jews represent a small percentage of the U.S. population, according to JNS, over 90 percent of Jews will be voting—significantly higher than the 74 percent of Americans who are projected to vote. This makes the Jewish vote especially...

    The United States has never been more vulnerable to domestic terrorism than we are today. Ever since Obama took office in 2008, especially when he merged with Hillary Clinton, terrorist attacks have increased inside the United States while they simultaneously have imported hundreds of thousands of refugees. Coincidence? Think again. Just this past weekend, the United States suffered three terrorist attacks within 24 hours on our own soil, and all three attacks were carried out by Muslims against Americans for obvious reasons. To begin, a pipe bomb went off in Seaside Park, New Jersey that attempted to take out thousands...

    In the wake of a radical Islamic terrorist attack on New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio is telling citizens not to worry about the threat of jihadist violence and pushing for even more questionably vetted migrants to be resettled in the United States. De Blasio and the mayors of London and Paris co-wrote an op-ed in which they said terrorism committed by refugees is “vanishingly rare.” “Militant violence is vanishingly rare,” the trio wrote in The New York Times on the heels of three separate attacks in the United States. The comments are not likely to go over well...

    If the Chelsea bomber had packed his second pressure-cooker IED in a less eye-catching bag, two men might not have removed it—and it might have killed dozens at an open-air restaurant. 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...

Twenty-nine people were injured when a bomb exploded in New York's upmarket Chelsea neighbourhood on Saturday night, damaging buildings, shattering glass and sending shrapnel flying across the street. A second bomb was uncovered by police four blocks away and defused safely, before being sent to the FBI in Virginia for forensic examination.

    The U.S. Secret Service appears to have broken its own protocol with Hillary Clinton's early departure from Sunday's commemoration of the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at Ground Zero. In a widely circulated video of the Democratic presidential nominee's departure from the ceremony, Clinton can be seen leaning against a security bollard and then buckling and stumbling as her security detail helps her into a black van. According to a former Secret Service agent who reviewed the video, the detail was clearly rushing and did not expect for Clinton to leave at that time. The former...

    Meanwhile, is a 69-year-old woman who can't remain standing at a reasonably lengthy event on a mild day healthy enough to be president? Everyone’s talking about it, but if you haven’t seen it as it actually happened, here you go: The official line from Hillary’s campaign is that she “overheated,” whatever that means on a day when it’s 74 degrees. I assume this is a lie because it came from Hillary’s campaign. What else do they do? I also offer no particular medical theories about what’s going on here, or if anything is. It’s not my field of expertise and...

    Here is the case of a missing paragraph that turned into a trap door that dropped a man into prison. The paragraph vanished from a police report in a Brooklyn criminal case, but essential information has been hidden from people accused of crimes in courthouses across the country. Even though failing to share exculpatory information is among the most serious breaches of ethics and law for the police and prosecutors, there is little personal or institutional accountability for such tactics. In 2010, to convict a man named Wayne Martin of killing two people during a stickup of a Brooklyn tire...

    This speech is different than many of his larger rallies. It was sponsored by the New York State Conservative Party — who knew they had one? Trump is very much "at home" and at ease, greeting many old friends in the audience. He speaks candidly and quietly. One of the very interesting parts is a detailed description of how he took over the Wollman Ice Skating Rink project and what advice, techniques and technologies he used. The audience laughs appreciatlvely at many points in this affectionate speech by a New York native, especially when he takes a shot at Matt...

In this case, commercial trucking companies and the American Trucking Associations (ATA) claimed that the New York State Thruway Authority violated the Constitution by charging inflated toll rates...

    Destroying America city by city. Millard Fillmore was born in a log cabin in upstate New York. Fifty years later, he took office as the thirteenth president of the United States. Around that time he sold off a piece of land. That land became the neighborhood of Lovejoy in the city of Buffalo. Lovejoy was named after Sarah Lovejoy who had been killed defending her home during the War of 1812. British forces had assaulted American towns once again by using their Indian allies as a terror weapon. Buffalo, now a major city, was burned to the ground with only...

    That was a quickie of a lawsuit! Eliot Spitzer has pulled out of a fraud and extortion case against an alleged Russian hooker who accused him of choking her at the Plaza Hotel — less than two months after filing the suit. “Eliot Spitzer, by and through his attorneys, hereby discontinues the above-entitled action without prejudice and without costs to either party as against the other,” the withdrawal notice says. The legal term “without prejudice” means Spitzer could refile the case in the future. –– ADVERTISEMENT –– Papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court Wednesday say the notice of discontinuance was...
