    A suspected terrorist detonated a potentially deadly “improvised low-tech explosive device” inside a New York City subway passageway during Monday morning rush hour, injuring himself and three other people and causing chaos at one of the city’s key traffic hubs. The device went off in the 42nd Street passageway between 7th and 8th avenues, and the suspect, later identified as Akayed Ullah, 27, was taken into custody, NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said. The incident happened at about 7:20 a.m. in the busy underground tunnel near both the Times Square subway station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal. None of the...

  • FACT CHECK: New Yorkers Will Get Tax Cuts Even Without the State and Local Tax Deduction

    The Republican tax overhaul will not be the punishment expected by many residents of high-tax, Democrat-voting areas. Many of those who have the most to lose from the elimination of state and local tax deductions will actually come out ahead under either the House or Senate versions of the bills. Many residents of places like New York City, which couple high taxes with high costs, fear the provisions of both bills that would eliminate or reduce the deductions they receive for the income and property taxes they pay locally. The Senate bill would preserve a property tax deduction up to...

    Let’s start with a general baseline here: sexual harassment is unacceptable. The creeps have to go. Period. This is beyond dispute. As more and more women come forward detailing horrific stories of harassment and in some cases assault, the dominos are falling. Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, and Mark Halperin, fixtures of American political journalism and the morning shows have fallen after lurid and depraved tales of harassment came to light. Harvey Weinstein, the once top-Hollywood producer, was the first to fall in this reckoning that’s sweeping the world. Yet, there is some silver lining regarding the political angle of this;...

    The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned. Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in the New York Democrat’s Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that Payne’s termination did not have to do with the quality of her work, according to her lawsuit.

    Legendary Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine molested an Illinois teenager from the time he was 15 years old, sexual abuse that lasted for years and led the alleged victim to the brink of suicide, according to a police report obtained by The Post. The alleged victim came forward to the Lake Forest, Ill. Police Department in October 2016 to detail the molestation, including times when Levine would masturbate in front of him and kiss his p*n*s, according to the report. The alleged victim informed a former Met Opera board member of the alleged abuse in 2016 and she alerted the...

    New York Times ^ | 11-29-2017 | Editorial Board New York Times
    Has North Korea achieved the nuclear weapons capability it thinks it needs to defend itself against the United States? Its latest and most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile test was undeniably hostile. Yet, paradoxically, it could signal a chance for a new diplomatic opening. There are many reasons to be skeptical of the North and pessimistic about the prospects for solving the crisis over its nuclear program, given the ruthlessness of its leader, Kim Jong-un, President Trump’s bombast and the deep mistrust between the two countries. But with regional tensions and the risk of miscalculation so acute, the United States and...

    At a Marxist rally hosted by New York University students in New York City’s Washington Square Park in September, a representative from NYU’s Asian/Pacific/American Institute had a hard time dealing with a a black man dressed as a peacock as she tried to address her “comrades.” The verbal battle between woman and peacock quickly escalated. She denounced the goals of “white supremacists who claim racism or nativism” and “stand on stolen land.” “You need to step the f**k out of our campus! There is no place for sexism,” the student responds before the crowd begins chanting in support of her....

    Hundreds of New York City teachers who'd lost their full-time positions but stayed on the payroll will be headed back to classrooms within the next few weeks. About a third of those teachers, it turns out, have faced legal or disciplinary charges. The city's education department announced this summer that schools that hadn't filled all their teaching positions by Oct. 15 would be assigned educators from the "absent teacher reserve" pool. According to a spokesman at the New York City Department of Education, the "matches" between teachers and schools are being made now, and those teachers will go into schools...

  • Sonny Rollins Spent A Mythical 'Night at the Village Vanguard' 60 Years Ago Today

    NPR ^ | November 3, 2017 | Nat Chinen
    One of the greatest jazz albums ever made was recorded 60 years ago today. It's A Night at the Village Vanguard, a live date by saxophonist Sonny Rollins, featuring a muscular backdrop of bass and drums. It's not a carefully plotted concept album, nor a manifesto, but a document with the slangy nonchalance of a conversation overheard on the street, extemporaneous and unburdened. It's a slice of musical vérité that captures a true master of the form on a good day, in a generous and jocular mood. At 87, Rollins is an acknowledged eminence in American culture: Earlier this year...

    The recent Islamic terror attack in New York City by a visa carrying jihadist outlines crystal clearly, how critical it is for America to enhance its permeable vetting process, and eliminate the suicidal “Diversity Lottery Visa Program.”Even if critical National Security-minded legislation such as the RAISE Act, put forth by Sens. Tom Cotton (AR) and David Perdue (GA), were to be passed, which it no doubt should be, the radical left will likely still find a way to subvert it.It is one of the most settled aspects of constitutional law that a president has the authority to exclude, or deport...

The Lame Stream Media has been working overtime trying to find ways not to broadcast the antics of extremist Islam. To date, it’s been the chore of ‘right wing’ grassroots ‘fake news’ agencies to spread such fanaticism. Now the Big Six is going to have to step up and do some honest reporting - because this junk is right here in our own front yard. The Big Apple is cleaning...

    What they won’t want to do is say anything, not one word, about the fact that this Guy With The Very Long Name from one of those -stan countries was in our country under something called the “Diversity Immigrant Program”. It will come as a surprise to no one at all – not even liberals, who are always surprised about pretty much every negative impact to our society that their actions inevitably cause – that Mr. Very Long Name was issued that “Diversity Visa” in 2010, by the Barack Obama Administration. So Mr. Very Long Name is in our country...
