  • Couple Stumbles Across Valuable ‘Treasure’ On Their Staten Island Property

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Name a person who hasn’t imagined finding a buried treasure. Well, that childhood dream turned into reality for a Staten Island couple recently, CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis reported Monday. But what they did after they got their hands on the treasure is the most surprising part of this story. The Emanuels discovered a silver box in their own yard, but for years never paid it much mind. They simply thought the box at the base of some trees was nothing more than a cable box. However, when they went to replace the trees on the side of...

    There is no forgiveness from some on the left. It doesn’t matter how many decades or tens of thousands of articles a publication contributes to liberal causes and the overall progressive agenda. If they have a single moment of clarity and fairness, they’re evil and no longer deserve support from the leftist elites. That’s the scenario surrounding Hollywood snowflake Debra Messing. The Will and Grace star, who is known for being to the left of most leftists in Hollywood, took great offense to the posting of a single article: The frailty of liberalism isn’t universal, despite claims by many right-wing...

    The Blaze ^ | June 3rd, 2015 | Erica Ritz
    The New York Times released an explosive article on Tuesday detailing how hundreds, if not thousands, of online “trolls” are paid to post pro-Kremlin propaganda across the Internet. One of their targeted sites, according to the report? TheBlaze.com. The trolls are organized by a group called the Internet Research Agency, and one former employee said she worked 12-hour days and had explicit instructions to create five political posts, 10 nonpolitical posts and 150 to 200 comments on the posts of those she worked with each shift. If you were to click on her accounts, she would appear like a normal...
  • Krugman Cries Treason After Stefan Halper Outed As FBI Infiltrator, There's Just One Problem...

    Friday’s outing of longtime CIA and MI6 asset Stefan Halper as an FBI asset sent to infiltrate the Trump campaign has social media abuzz today. Reactions have ranged from celebration to outrage, with little inbetween. To recap, after two weeks of hunting for a “mole” in the Trump campaign, the New York Times and Washington Post both printed incredibly detailed descriptions of Halper – withholding all but his name, solidly corroborating a March report by the Daily Caller‘s Chuck Ross about Halper’s meetings with the Trump aides. Neither publication give Ross credit, of course. Somehow several anti-Trump intellectuals got their...

    A taxpayer-subsidized university in New York City has established an 'exclusive fellowship for graduate students' in public health with the abortion provider Planned Parenthood during the 2018-2019 school year. While Planned Parenthood/NYC is attempting to code their work associated with the position as being a type of social justice effort, previous efforts by organizations to promote “reproductive justice” have shown that the term is nothing more than a phrase for continuously promoting the acceptance and legality of abortion. Though the position is only 'part-time', it provides several cushy benefits to students who are selected. ... In addition to being paid...
  • Leakers to NYT Confirm FBI Ran Spy Operation Against Trump Campaign

    Breitbart ^ | 16 May 2018 | Kristina Wong
    Leakers to the New York Times confirmed in a story published on Wednesday that the FBI had run a spy operation on the Trump campaign that involved government informants, secret subpoenas, and possible wiretaps. The story comes ahead of the release of the pending Department of Justice inspector general report on the FBI’s actions during the 2016 election, and likely is an attempt by the leakers to paint the FBI’s efforts in the most flattering light possible. But the story revealed that the FBI – which is supposed to be an apolitical agency – was spying on the Trump campaign...

    After Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders’s strong showing in the primary, many in the Democratic Party are able to read the writing on the wall: They need to move left. But who wants to step in? Andrew Cuomo, the governor of New York. In the past two years, Mr. Cuomo - with an eye on national office - has rebranded himself from conservative insider to left-wing populist. Last year, he even held a news conference with Mr. Sanders to announce a “free college” plan. The truth is, the governor wears his new identity like a cheap...

    Amidst the screaming headlines about “massacre” and “war crimes” and unsettling pictures of Arab casualties, keep in mind the central question: When is it the right time to do the right thing? That’s the question President Trump faced when considering whether to move the American Embassy to Jerusalem. His three predecessors had used a loophole in the 1995 law requiring the move to give a consistent and increasingly cynical answer of, “Not now, maybe later.” That dodge lasted 22 years, until Trump cut through the nonsense last December with a statement of resounding moral clarity. Now, he said, is the...

    It's reasonable to assume that much of the new information in the New York Times report relates to leakers' fears about information that will be coming out in the inspector general report. 1. FBI Officials Admit They Spied On Trump Campaign This is a stunning admission for those Americans worried that federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies might use their powers to surveil, leak against, and target Americans simply for their political views or affiliations. As Sean Davis wrote, “The most amazing aspect about this article is how blasé it is about the fact that the Obama admin was actively...

    A Jewish lawyer in New York was caught berating Spanish-speaking workers at a Manhattan restaurant and threatening to call immigration agents on them in a clip shared widely on social media. Aaron Schlossberg had a meltdown in a Fresh Kitchen in East Midtown Wednesday morning after hearing some of the employees speak Spanish to one another and to Spanish-speaking customers, Gothamist first reported. “Every person I listen to — he’s speaking it, she’s speaking it. This is America!” the man shouted. The man appeared to be filming the encounter, as did one of the employees and other customers in the...

    Yazan Tubasi was one of the Palestinians killed in the newest Gaza rioting. His father is happy that his son is a martyr. That, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with Palestinians. Numerous media outlets have referred to what happened in Gaza as a "protest", but it was not a protest. It was a riot. It was violence planned by Hamas. The media coverage of terror group Hamas’ deliberately-crafted border assault on Israel has been egregious: from CNN to MSNBC to The New York Times, mainstream outlets have acted as propaganda vehicles for one of the worst regimes on the...

    Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark. Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I....

    The New York Daily News is known for being a bit tabloidy and not exactly a bastion of hard hitting news, but their latest headline is just shameful. Who let this go to print? Good grief. pic.twitter.com/8DbOF2mgUh— Brit Hume (@brithume) May 15, 2018 The nasty headline leaves out that Hamas helped orchestrate Monday's violent protests. The rioters stormed the Gaza-Israeli border, despite being warned, with firebombs and other explosive devices, so IDF confronted them with force of their own. Over 50 individuals were killed and over 2,000 injured in the exchange. Reports reveal that 10 of those killed were members...

    Mainstream media is at it again, promulgating fake news. I woke up this morning to a slew of stories about “Palestinian Protestors Killed in Gaza Protests.” The imagery of a man holding up a cardboard sign while getting shot comes to mind, from such a headline, doesn’t it? I became concerned, read further. Turns out, it’s the same ‘ol anti-Israeli fake news. Mainstream media at it again. Headlines:CNN: “37 Palestinians killed in Gaza protests ahead of US embassy opening”ABC News: “Death toll in massive Palestinian protests climbs to at least 41, bloodiest day in Gaza since 2014 war”Washington Post: “Israelis kill dozens of...

    An opinionated tabloid cover can be effective, but only if the point made is so obvious that an entire audience can see and relate to it. It also helps if it is humorous and has a witty headline. What it's not is garbage that looks as though it comes straight from fake news, or compares apples to oranges in the name of promoting the propaganda of some unhappy terrorist group.

    The media is so addicted to covering President Donald Trump that they are missing important stories happening elsewhere, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof told CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday. Admitting that he was as guilty as other journalists, Kristof said that “We in the media are all Trump, all the time... [and] the upshot is that we risk not covering a lot of really important things at home and around the world.”

    Iranian dissident Mansoor Osanloo, the exiled former head of the bus driver’s union in Tehran, was savagely attacked on Tuesday, May 1, while traveling on a PATH train into New York City, and left for dead. Multiple assailants sprayed him with a corrosive chemical, then clubbed him in the back of the neck with what appears to have been a tire iron. He lay in a coma for several days and required 17 stitches in his neck. I spoke with Osanloo on Monday, not long after he awoke from a coma. “I don’t remember anything,” he said. “But you can...

    In a plain pine box about the size of a small trunk an ingenious infernal machine containing one hundred pounds of dynamite was found on the pier of the Cunard Line less than one hour before the steamer Umbria sailed for Liverpool. According to Superintendent George E Murray of the department of combustibles the prompt discovery and immediate immersion in the water at the end of the pier by the detectives who found it was all that prevented the explosion of the dynamite and the destruction of the pier, with the many persons who had gathered to sail or bid...

    When Patricia O’Grady moved into the top floor of a Greenwich Village walk-up in 1955, she and her three roommates helped sweep the hallway in exchange for a discounted rent of $16 a month. The unit was bare, no more than floor and walls, so the girls, all aspiring actresses, slowly improved it themselves, installing a sink and other modest amenities. While her roommates moved on, O’Grady never left the unit, and for that she received the ultimate New York City prize: unbelievably affordable rent. Until March, when O’Grady, 84, was fatally struck by a car just a few feet...
