    I grew up in suburbia, and have spent various parts of my life in small towns, a Southern city and in rural Indiana. Moving may be a hassle, but new experiences in new locations provide wonderful opportunities to learn and explore. That's certainly true as I adjust to life in New York City, a vastly different environment than anything I've tried before. Living in the city, my wife and I have encountered government as never before. We rely on the subway to get around, enjoy strolls through Central Park, routinely see police officers and traffic cops and have heard about...
  • The Unsolved Mystery of Judge Joseph Force Crater's Disappearance

    New York Daily News ^ | Monday, August 14, 2017 | Jay Maeder
    At least until the first week of August, it appeared to have been a pretty good year for Joseph Force Crater. He was 41 years old, a good Tammany Hall Democrat, widely regarded as a comer. Gov. Franklin Roosevelt had recently named him to the state Supreme Court bench. Some felt he was on the fast track to big things, perhaps even the Supreme Court of the United States. Then he stepped into a New York City taxicab and vanished from the face of the Earth. Maybe he ended up in the tropics with a sackful of cash and a...

    Well, if you want to lose faith in humanity and see the stupidity of hipster liberals in New York City, this is the video for you. Ami Horowitz took to the streets to talk about income inequality with some of the most insufferable people on the planet: progressives. Of course, they all felt it was a critical issue. One man was a member of the Working Families Party in the state. So, which country can we look to for guidance in solving this issue? How about socialist hellhole Venezuela?  It’s the nation with rolling blackouts, inadequate medical supplies, no toilet...

    A native Texan who recently moved from Cypress Hills to Greenpoint because he thought it would be safer, was stabbed to death by a stranger in his new neighborhood — as his wife watched in horror. George and Christina Carroll were enjoying a stroll home along Monitor Street late Friday after checking out a new apartment and then hitting a local bar, when one of a pair of men hanging out on the steps of a school muttered something to them as they passed, the stunned widow told The Post. “It was basically, ‘What are you looking at?’ ” said Christina...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
