  • Now Kirsten Gillibrand and Letitia James are trying to dodge debates

    Republicans raged Saturday at the expanding number of top New York Democrats who are giving their challengers the silent treatment rather than debate them. So far, Gov. Cuomo, and two top Dems — Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and attorney general candidate Letitia James — are ducking debates with their darkhorse opponents.
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Spends Thousands on Uber After Criticizing the 'Unregulated' Service

    Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's social media solidarity with taxi drivers appeared to be undermined by a recent revelation about her own campaign's spending. In March, a taxi cab driver in New York City unfortunately took his own life after falling on financial hardship. New York Times reporter Noam Scheiber tweeted a statement that blamed the driver's death on the existence of Uber and Lyft. Referencing the city government's allowance of the ride-sharing companies, the statement argued that "anti-regulation zealotry came at the expense of professional drivers." Ocasio-Cortez quoted that tweet and criticized the "unregulated expansion of Uber." Despite the Twitter...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told a gathering at the 92nd Street Y in New York on Sunday that there may have to be “collateral damage” to those Americans who do not agree with the Democratic Party agenda. Pelosi was being interviewed onstage by Paul Krugman, the left-wing New York Times columnist and Nobel economic laureate who predicted, the day Donald Trump won the presidency, that Trump would trigger “a global recession, with no end in sight.” In a long, rambling monologue, during which she stumbled on her words and appeared to lose her train of thought, Pelosi said:...

    Letters spelling out “Trump Place” on the facades of an Upper West Side building will be pried off by workers Thursday, following a vote from the condo’s board, according to reports. Residents at 200 Riverside Blvd., a 46-story building between 69th and 70th streets, fought for the right to tear the Trump name from their building following the 2016 election, with many people wanting to distance themselves from politics, The New York Times reported. Eric Chung, a longtime resident whose family owns two units in the building, told The Times that removing the letters “makes a very powerful statement.”
  • Why de Blasio Just Helped Republicans More Than Democrats While Campaigning for Gillum

    Townhall.com ^ | October 15, 2018 | Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis
    Mayor Bill de Blasio was in the battleground state of Florida this past weekend campaigning for the Bernie Sanders-backed Democratic nominee for governor, Andrew Gillum, but it is most likely the Republican ticket of Ron DeSantis and Janette Nunez that he helped by being there. Here in New York City, we’re facing record high homelessness, deplorable conditions in city public housing, and a crumbling transit system. Homeowners have also seen a 44% increase in the property taxes since de Blasio took office and now a push to open more homeless shelters, jails and even heroin injection centers in their neighborhoods....

    President Trump on Wednesday said the U.S. has requested audio and video from Turkey related to the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "We've asked for it, if it exists," Trump said in the Oval Office. Trump told reporters he is not sure if a recording exists, but conceded it "probably does," and indicated it could play a role in assigning blame for his fate. "We will probably know that by the end of the week," Trump said regarding the Khashoggi case. The president spoke as grisly details emerged about the Saudis alleged interrogation of Khashoggi inside their consulate in Istanbul...

    A Saudi contribution of $100 million to U.S.-backed stabilization efforts in Syria arrived in American accounts Tuesday, just as State Mike Pompeo touched down in Riyadh to discuss the missing Saudi journalist, an anonymous U.S. official told The New York Times. The source said the timing of the two events is no accident. He said Saudi Arabia originally pledged its contribution in August, and U.S. officials were expecting to receive it by the fall. But Brett McGurk, a U.S. envoy to the coalition fighting the Islamic State in Syria, played down the significance of the timing with Pompeo’s visit.

    New York Post ^ | October 15, 2018 | Marc Thiessen
    when it comes to the real barometer of presidential truthfulness — keeping his promises — Trump is a paragon of honesty. For better or worse, since taking office, Trump has done exactly what he promised he would. Trump kept his promise to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, something his three immediate predecessors also promised yet failed to do. He promised to “crush and destroy ISIS,” and two years later, he is on the verge of eliminating the Islamic State’s physical caliphate. He promised to impose a travel ban on countries he saw as posing...

    Curious as to how clueless is the New York Times? Mara Gay—a member of the Grey Lady's editorial board—claimed on Ari Melbers's MSNBC show today that President Trump's mocking of Elizabeth Warren's phony claim to be a Native American "was actually about white anxieties among Donald Trump's base about who's white in America."Anxieties about who is white in America? What meaningless identity-politics gobbledygook! No, Ms. Gay. Trump's point is that Warren cheated. That she made her bogus claim of Native American-hood in order to get ahead in academia.

    During a two part interview with President Trump aired on 60 Minutes on Sunday night, Lesley Stahl asked “what’s the biggest surprise” he's learned as President? Trump cited the duplicity of Washington politicians, but when he relayed how “the other thing I’ve really learned is I never knew how dishonest the media was and I really mean it. I’m not saying that as a soundbite. I never knew how dishonest,” Stahl cut him off: “I’m going to change the subject again.” Referring to an earlier exchange, Trump pointed out: “Well, no, even the way you asked me a question, like,...

    There is a hit piece on me in the New York Times today, which as a conservative I take as a point of honor. Just to note some of the inaccuracies in the piece: "When Christine Blasey Ford testified before Congress last month about Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual assault, an online news site called Right Wing News sprang into action on Facebook. The conservative site, run by the blogger John Hawkins, had created a series of new Facebook pages and accounts over the last year under many different names, according to Facebook." I have never created a Facebook...

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said President Trump must respond with more than “just words” if Saudi Arabia is found to be behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi or it would undermine the United States’ reputation as a champion of human rights. “I’m glad the president didn’t tie his hands in terms of exactly what we are going to do. But it needs to be very strong and meaningful, it can’t be symbolic, it can’t just be words,” the Florida lawmaker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Trump has threatened “severe consequences” against Saudi Arabia but hasn’t gone...

    Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.  At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage,  and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments. "I'm always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about," Cuomo said on NY1. "And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when during a radio interview he said “extreme conservatives” have “no place” in the Empire State. Who are these people? Among others, he said, those who are “right to life” or “anti-gay.”Later he tried to walk back this naked and nasty bit of intolerance, reassuring us that those who are “anti-choice” (one presumes he got a tongue-lashing from NARAL for saying “right to life” the first time) could stay in New York after all. But that bell, as the saying goes, can’t be un-rung.Catholics, of course, are “right to life”...

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo came under fire for criticizing pro-life and pro-Second Amendment citizens of his state -- and saying "that is not who New Yorkers are." Their problem is not me and democrats, their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay, is that who they are? Because if that is who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are. Now his office is backtracking and insisting...

The “Kavanaugh is a gang rapist!” narrative was a miserable failure; the “Taylor Swift endorses Phil Bredesen!” narrative crashed up on the shoals of disastrous poll results; the “Trump misreported his taxes!” narrative held public attention for about, well, no time at all; and the “It’s gonna be a BLUE WAVE!!!!!” narrative is showing clear signs of being more like a Tidy Bowl toilet flushing.

    Donald Trump is responsible for all manner of things, particularly if you ask anyone at MSNBC, CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post. He’s caused unrest around the world using nothing more than tweets, sparked riots in the streets and I’m pretty sure at least a couple of people have blamed him for global warming. But perhaps his greatest trick of all has been to increase the rates of alcohol consumption in America. Or at least that’s the opinion of WaPo columnist Kathleen Parker. Amid hurricanes, a vanished journalist, the recent Supreme Court hearings, midterms and “mobs,” it...

    DUBLIN, Ohio — Robert Peters and George Fidelibus walked off the 18th green at the Golf Club of Dublin, then carried pints of beer to the patio overlooking the course, which was framed by $500,000 homes. Their conversation quickly turned to the president. “I’m feeling better and better about him all the time,” said Mr. Peters, 63, a retired engineer, who had once been cool to Mr. Trump. Mr. Fidelibus, 75, a retired banker in a Calloway hat, had also once been skeptical of the president’s bullying and lack of self-control. “I’m a supporter of Trump now,” he said “He...

Where was that attitude when they were predicting Trump to lose in 2016? 28,607 CALLS on this poll. 593 responses. Marsha Blackburn, the Republican candidate, leads our poll.

    Last Saturday’s column on the New York Times investigation of Trump family tax dodging put aside the question of whether hefty inheritance taxes are good public policy. Let’s take it up now. Those who complained that my nondefense “normalized” Trump-era corruption miss an obvious fact. The events took place 30 years ago. It was already normalized. The Times itself has now run two op-eds making the same point. The appraiser who valued Trump property for tax purposes, according to the paper’s investigation, was a “favorite of New York City’s big real-estate families.” Trump family lawyers and accountants were the same...
