  • Ex-hedgie seeks to keep suit vs. Preet Bharara alive

    New York Post ^ | March 24, 2017 | By Carleton English and Kaja Whitehouse
    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...

    American Rattlesnake ^ | February 23, 2017 | Gerard Perry
    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...

    The Daily Signal ^ | February 15, 2017 | Walter E. Williams
    Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims.Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a “Terry stop.”After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were...
  • Friars Club Raided by FBI

    SNIP Multiple sources said the legendary Friars Club was raided by federal agents this week. Sources told Page Six that agents left with “computers and boxes of files.” The club’s finances are being investigated, we hear, by US Attorney Preet Bharara’s Southern District of New York, though a rep for Bharara’s office said he could not comment on whether there is an investigation. An FBI rep and a rep for the Friars Club did not immediately return calls seeking comment.

The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a Jewish non-profit that aims to protect refugees held the event at Castle Clinton in Battery Park at 11 a.m. Organizers said they were calling on elected officials to keep America's doors open to refugees fleeing violence and persecution.

    With few exceptions, New York has always been a round-pie, thin-crust town. (They don’t call it a “regular” slice for nothing.) Recently, though, the square has stepped into the spotlight, thanks largely to an obscure midwestern interloper called Detroit-style pizza, which arrived in Williamsburg last spring and proceeded to give our hometown Sicilian something of an inferiority complex. Luckily, a local movement was happening at the same time, with talented bakers reinvigorating old forms like the grandma pie and the upside-down Sicilian, and rogue Italian pizzaioli rebelling against the Neapolitan orthodoxy with newfangled Roman pizza al taglio and souped-up focaccia....

    The Coach's Team ^ | 1/13/17 | Doug Book
    The NY Post had it right in August of 2015 when it deemed the Clinton Foundation a “slush fund.” But it seems that the most desirable deposits of slush only find their way to those who are in a position to offer something in return. Last year, Hillary’s aspirations for unrivaled power ran headlong into the wisdom she didn’t believe American voters possessed. As a result, donations to the Clinton Foundation are, as PJ Media puts it, “drying up.” For example, “The Norwegian government’s planned contribution to the Clinton Foundation next year will be nearly 90 percent off its peak...”...

    After failing miserably in her 2016 bid for the White House, several sources are reporting today that Hillary Clinton is mulling a potential run for New York City Mayor. Although Mayor de Blasio, whose term ends at the end of 2017, has close ties to the Clintons there is no love lost between the two after de Blasio initially refused to endorse Hillary's presidential bid. According to New York's Daily News, Hillary is being pressured by many New York Democrats to challenge Mayor de Blasio and wouldn't explicitly rule out a run when pressed by one top Dem late in...

    Brad Lander is a city councilman in New York. But that’s not preventing him from setting his sights nationally, as he casts about for a new staffer who will take the fight to President-elect Donald Trump. According to the job posting, the Brooklyn Democrat is looking for a communications director to “resist the threats of the Trump regime to American democratic values and vulnerable constituencies.” Other responsibilities include more ho-hum tasks such as organizing press conferences and talking to reporters. Lander, who is Jewish and represents a swath of northern Brooklyn including Park Slope, has been out front since the...

    The Washington Post ^ | 12/12/2016 | Catherine Rampell
    Froufrou Fifth Avenue resembles a police state. Officers wielding gigantic guns guard Trump Tower, where President-elect Donald Trump conducts all transition business, and soon lots of presidential business, too. Shoppers patronizing the stores, cafes or public gardens inside must endure layers of security screening. Streets and sidewalks are barricaded; traffic is snarled; and costumed buskers milk money from the looky-loos obstructing the entrances to Gucci and Tiffany. The challenges of securing this 58-story building in a high-density neighborhood will, by Inauguration Day alone, drain $35 million of local taxpayer money. Who knows the additional costs to commerce and property values?

    Officials are conducting an urgent review of the billions of dollars that New York City receives each year from the federal government to identify the streams of money that may be most at risk once President-elect Donald J. Trump takes office. Mr. Trump, a Republican, has threatened to punish cities that defy his efforts to deport undocumented immigrants, and there is also concern that the Republican-controlled Congress may seek to slash longstanding aid programs. “There’s urgency because the threat seems greater than it’s been,” said Tony Shorris, the first deputy mayor, referring to the effort to identify which programs may...
  • "Boss” Tweed delivered to authorities

    11/23/2016 8:59:55 AM PST · by Kid Shelleen · 8 replies
    William Magear “Boss” Tweed, leader of New York City’s corrupt Tammany Hall political organization during the 1860s and early 1870s, is delivered to authorities in New York City after his capture in Spain. Tweed became a powerful figure in Tammany Hall–New York City’s Democratic political machine–in the late 1850s. By the mid 1860s, he had risen to the top position in the organization and formed the “Tweed Ring,” which openly bought votes, encouraged judicial corruption, extracted millions from city contracts, and dominated New York City politics. The Tweed Ring reached its peak of fraudulence in 1871 with the remodeling of...

Christine Quinn is a butch liberal New Yorker who ran for Mayor of NYC and failed to Communist Bill de Blasio. Both Ana Navarro and Christine Quinn were reduced to screamer at Kayleigh McEnany and Jeffrey Lord.
