  • End this nonsense- make them testify under oath!

    A new example on Thursday was The New York Times’ statement that a Russian agency “spent $100,000 on [Facebook’s] platform to influence the United States presidential election last year” – when the Times knows that statement is not true. According to Facebook, only 44 percent of that amount appeared before the U.S. presidential election in 2016 (i.e., $44,000) and few of those ads addressed the actual election. And, we know that the Times is aware of the truth because it was acknowledged in a Times article in early October. As part of that article, Times correspondents Mike Isaac and Scott...
  • Attack on Egyptian mosque targets civilization itself

    Friday’s bloodthirsty attack on a mosque in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula during noontime prayers was a crime against all humanity. It wasn’t “just” an attack on Muslims. It was an attack on all of us who believe in civilization, tolerance and decency. At least 235 peaceful worshippers died, with more than 100 wounded. One is tempted to call it the work of beasts, but no creature in the animal kingdom behaves with such avid, calculated cruelty. Yet, the attack can be explained — though the explanation only makes it worse. Islamist fanatics struck with bombs and automatic weapons, slaughtering first the...

    The Times set out to compare the trustworthiness of Obama compared to President Donald Trump. "In his first 10 months in office, [Trump] has told 103 separate untruths, many of them repeatedly. Obama told 18 over his entire eight-year tenure," the piece reads.

    The two terrorist attacks six weeks apart in New York City carried out by two recent immigrants were swiftly contained and the suspects arrested. But the political consequences instantly started reverberating. Akayed Ullah, 27, a green card holder from Bangladesh who is accused of detonating a bomb in a subway tunnel on Monday, came to the United States on what is known as an F43 visa, available to the nieces and nephews of U.S. citizens. Sayfullo Saipov, 29, from Uzbekistan, won his visa in a diversity lottery intended to bring immigrants from underrepresented countries to the United States. The Trump...
  • Liberal NY Orthodox synagogue to stop announcing LGBT weddings after complaints

    12/13/2017 9:36:01 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 18 replies
    A flagship liberal Orthodox synagogue in New York will stop congratulating same-sex couples on their weddings following a complaint by the Orthodox Union. The Hebrew Institute of Riverdale in the Bronx will no longer announce the weddings of its LGBT members in its newsletters in accordance with a policy dictated by the OU, the largest association of Orthodox synagogues in the United States. The policy was set out this month in response to complaints from other member synagogues, which take a harder line on opposing same-sex marriage. Orthodox Jewish law, or halacha, prohibits same-sex marriage, and Orthodox rabbis are not...

    A man who swiped an elderly woman’s house with phony documents did time for the crime — but an appellate court is letting the city off the hook for processing the paperwork that let the ex-con make himself at home.   A Brooklyn appeals court has ruled that a judge was right to toss a lawsuit brought against the city by Jennifer Merin — whose Queens abode was filched by a criminal who filed a fraudulent deed.   Merin, 74, had sued the city for not catching the forgery when the paperwork was first filed, but lost on appeal when the court...

    (Reuters) - Senior FBI officials who helped probe Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign told a colleague that Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had to win the race to the White House, the New York Times reported on Tuesday. Peter Strzok, a senior FBI agent, said Clinton “just has to win” in a text sent to FBI lawyer Lisa Page, the Times reported. The messages showed concern from Strzok and Page that a Trump presidency could politicize the FBI, the report said, citing texts turned over to Congress and obtained by the newspaper. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is investigating...

New York state prison officials said Tuesday that 64-year-old David Berkowitz was transferred to a hospital from the upstate maximum-security prison where he is serving a life sentence. Officials would not comment on why he was in the hospital, but the New York Post and the Times-Union of Albany reported that he was transferred to undergo heart surgery.

    New York’s undocumented came out of the shadows under Obama. Now, with Trump, they fear giving away personal details could have been a big mistake. As President Donald Trump fights to deliver on his pledge to rapidly deport 2 to 3 million people living in the country without visas, there’s a pile of almost a million documents with details of many of New York City’s undocumented people — information they themselves willingly handed over that today risk leading federal immigration forces right to their front doors. More than a million of the country's estimated 11.1 million undocumented immigrants live in...

    Twenty seven-year-old Akayed Ullah, who attempted to suicide bomb (I say attempted because he survived after injuring himself and four other people) the New York City subway system during rush hour Monday morning, was an immigrant from Bangladesh. He came to the United States in 2011 through family chain migration. “DHS can confirm that the suspect was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The suspect is a Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh who benefited from extended family chain migration," Homeland Security Press Secretary Tyler Houlton confirmed. During the daily...

    The family of the alleged ISIS-inspired Port Authority bomber said they were “heartbroken” by the attack on Monday and blasted law enforcement agencies for what they claimed were heavy-handed tactics by investigators. “We are heartbroken by the violence that was targeted at our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family,” said the statement read by Albert Fox Cahn, the Legal Director for the NY Chapter Council for Islamic Relations. “But we’re also outraged by the behavior of the law enforcement officials who held children as small as 4 years old out in the...

    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...

    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;...
