    Have a gun license? Plan to bring your gun to my hometown? Don't. Mean New York authorities will make your life miserable. Patricia Jordan and her daughter flew here from her home state of Georgia. She wanted her gun nearby for protection. Jordan obeyed all the Transportation Security Administration's rules: She put her gun in a locked TSA-approved case with its bullets separate. She informed the airline that she had a gun. The airline had no problem with that. In New York City, she kept the gun locked in her hotel room. She never needed it, but her daughter told...
  • Trump and de Blasio in Europe: A study in contrasts

    American Thinker ^ | 8 Jul, 2017 | Avrohom Gordimer
    President Trump and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio were both overseas this week, within a few miles of each other. In fact, the President and the mayor were in Hamburg, Germany for the same exact event. Yet the contrast could not be starker. After a very successful trip to Poland, President Trump is tending to state business of the highest order at the G-20 summit in Hamburg. Despite the countless violent, rogue and lawless protesters, the President is moving our country’s agenda forward at the summit, as he temporarily leaves behind an America that is in far better...

    It was a family affair on Thursday when a newly sworn-in NYPD officer followed his grandfather, father and uncle's footsteps to become the fourth generation to join the force -- and wear the same shield number. Officer Ryan Donnellan, 21, was among the 408 people graduating from the Police Academy at Madison Square Garden, the New York Daily News reported. His father, Patrick Donnellan, 52; grandfather, Christopher Donnellan, 90; and uncle, Vincent Donnellan, 51, attended the ceremony to see the fourth generation be sworn in. Donnellan told the newspaper that he took summer classes at Fordham University so he would...

    Henry Bello, 45 — who resigned amid a sexual-harassment scandal — fatally shot a physician and wounded six other people with an assault rifle before killing himself, officials said. “When he left he promised to come back and shoot one of the residents,” Dr. Maureen Kwankam told The Post about Bello.“He said the resident will never graduate and become a doctor because he will kill him before he has the opportunity.”Before he was canned, the deranged doc had threatened to harm at least four other people working at the hospital, Kwankam said.He also called the resident once on the phone...

    Delta Airlines announced on Sunday that it was withdrawing its sponsorship of New York City’s nonprofit Public Theater over a new Shakespeare in the Park production of “Julius Caesar” featuring a facsimile of Donald Trump in the title role meeting a very bloody end. “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the company said in a statement, ending a four-year-old sponsorship. “Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste. We have notified...

    The New York Daily News ^ | 06/10/2017 | Dale W. Eisnger
    Anti-Muslim protesters marching in Lower Manhattan Saturday were met by a larger group of counter-protesters who drowned them out with chants of their own. The two sides squared off in Foley Square, where ACT for America, a lobbying organization opposed to Muslim immigration, organized a “March against Sharia” - part of a series of nationwide marches the group organized Saturday. About 100 demonstrators carrying signs with anti-Islamic slogans — one reading simply “NO MORE MUSLIMS” — shouted against Sharia law, which ACT for America argues is threatening the United States. The organization is designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center...

    New York – Muslims continued on with their civilization Jihad as they took over the street in front of Trump Tower during ‘Iftar’ or ‘breaking their Ramadan fast’. There is no reason for this other than Muslims letting the infidels know that they here and working on their Islamic takeover. Of course Hamas-linked, Linda Sarsour was also there spewing more lies about her intentions as a Muslim activist. She claims Trump is full of hatred and divisiveness which of course is untrue. The real hate and divisiveness comes from Islam and Sarsour knows it. Muslim countries are the most bigoted...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday that it is "distressing" that non-criminal illegal immigrants are being arrested. [Snip] In New York City, ICE arrested 156 non-criminal illegal immigrants, more than double the amount for the same period last year. De Blasio said in a radio interview with WNYC that "it's very distressing, Brian, to hear that ICE is picking up people who are law abiding and contributing to the community."

    Ahmad Rahimi, the terrorist responsible for the New York City bombing in September of 2016, wants a reduced prison sentence for the pain and suffering he has faced. The bomber's attorney asked prosecutors to consider his "mental and physical health" as part of a plea agreement, arguing that his pain should be considered equally to the victims he injured and tried to kill. [Snip] Federal court documents show that the lawyers defending the terrorist argue that because police shot him 11 times, he has experienced "brain injuries, limited longevity, and/or post-traumatic stress disorder." [Snip] The bomber has been charged with...

    I was about to dip a nugget in some Chick-fil-A Sauce the other day when I received an urgent message on my phone. “Student Groups Shut Down Chick-fil-A Proposal,” one headline blared. “Catholic University Caves to LGBT Pressure, Rejects Chick-fil-A,” screamed another. A cavalcade of anti-chicken headlines blurted from my phone – but the most succinct came from Food and Wine magazine:  “Fordham University Rejects Chick-fil-A after LGBT Student Concerns.”However incredulous it may have been, the Jesuits had indeed banished the Chick-fil-A cows. As I pondered that reality, I nearly choked on a delicious, hand-spun Chick-fil-A Icedream milkshake topped off with whipped...

    This hungry squirrel is taking New York by storm, one taco at a time. New York’s wild animals have become internet sensations for snatching food crumbs off the street (2015’s Pizza Rat is perhaps the best-known among them). Naturally, this Twitter photo uploaded on Wednesday morning of a squirrel munching on a hard-shell taco in Brooklyn, is going viral.

    A retired NYPD lieutenant, two retired NYPD officers and a former Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney were arrested early Tuesday by FBI agents in connection with the issuance of gun licenses by the NYPD's licensing division, according to law enforcement sources familiar with the case. The federal charges include bribery, extortion, making false statements and conspiracy, court papers say. The four men were arrested at their respective residences in Manhattan and Long Island, law enforcement sources said. Authorities allege they fast-tracked gun licenses and investigations.

    A former hedge fund manager on Friday fought for a chance to get former Manhattan US Attorney Preet Bharara on the witness stand. David Ganek, founder of Level Global, asked a federal appeals court to keep alive his 2015 lawsuit charging Bharara and the FBI with “fabricating evidence” to raid his $4 billion hedge fund in 2010. Bharara already tried once filed to kill the suit, which a trial judge denied in March. The prosecutor then appealed the ruling. “The notion there is no remedy when an officer of the United States [lies] in an affidavit is extraordinary,” Ganek’s lawyer...

    The mayor of New York City just may be the second most powerful elected position in U.S. politics, only behind the presidency. Located inside City Hall in the heart of Manhattan's bustling and brightly lit Broadway, the Big Apple's mayoral office is arguably the most influential in the world. And it looks like Hillary Clinton has her eyes all over it. The former Democratic candidate who won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election but lost in a shocking electoral upset to President Donald Trump has reportedly been flirting with the idea of a run for New York City...

    The man you see (indistinctly) in the photo below is Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., who spoke before a packed crowd at the Women’s National Republican Club last night on a variety of subjects. Although the invitation I responded to billed the evening as a discussion of sanctuary cities, Vance did not address the topic until prompted by an audience member during the question and answer session, approximately 40 minutes or so after he began speaking. I can’t say I was surprised by his reluctance to address the subject, despite its topicality. The New York County District Attorney’s office...
