  • How White Liberals Enable Crime in Black Communities

    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...

The clubs finances are being investigated, we hear, by US Attorney Preet Bhararas Southern District of New York, though a rep for Bhararas 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.

    With few exceptions, New York has always been a round-pie, thin-crust town. (They dont 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 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, Hillarys aspirations for unrivaled power ran headlong into the wisdom she didnt believe American voters possessed. As a result, donations to the Clinton Foundation are, as PJ Media puts it, drying up. For example, The Norwegian governments planned contribution to the Clinton Foundation next year will be nearly 90 percent off its peak......

    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?

That's because, while the white leads, McCarthy, Wiig and McKinnon, play brilliant engineers, professors and scientists, Jones' character is a simple NYC subway worker.

    Should she win the presidency, Hillary Clinton would quickly try to find common ground with Republicans on an immigration overhaul and infrastructure spending, risking the wrath of liberals who would like nothing more than to twist the knife in a wounded opposition party. In her first 100 days, she would also tap women to make up half of her cabinet in hopes of bringing a new tone and collaborative sensibility to Washington, while also looking past Wall Street to places like Silicon Valley for talent perhaps wooing Sheryl Sandberg from Facebook, and maybe asking Tim Cook from Apple to...

    Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that two of the countrys most prominent newspapers are in an all-out war against Donald Trump. During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, Gingrich blasted the news outlets, saying they are lying about the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Both The New York Times and The Washington Post have been in an all-out war to try to redefine Donald Trump, he said. Gingrich pointed to a Times article that portrayed Trump as often being inappropriate with women. The report relied on testimony from dozens of women who have interacted with...

    NEW YORK Ten years ago, the New York Times reported on a growing underground subculture in the black community known as Down Low, comprised largely of men who secretly engage in homosexual activity while living straight lives in public. Its within that subtext that opposition researchers for Hillary Clintons 2008 presidential campaign began investigating rumors that Rev. Jeremiah Wright was running a matchmaking service for members of his Trinity United Church of Christ known as the Down Low Club, which included Barack Obama. Over the past several months, WND investigators have interviewed a number of members of the church...

    In the aftermath of the Democratic National Convention, the party's nominee, Michael S. Dukakis, has expanded his lead among registered voters over Vice President Bush, the probable Republican nominee, according to a Gallup Poll...

The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus four percentage points... This represented a shift in Mr. Dukakis's lead from the 47 percent to 41 percent advantage he...

    Just what will it take to cut off US funding for Palestinian terror? That question has taken center stage amid the wave of murderous lone wolf attacks against Israeli civilians, egged on by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. Thursday, a Palestinian killed a sleeping 13-year-old girl in the West Bank. The next day, another opened fire on a car, killing a dad and wounding his wife and two kids. ADVERTISEMENT Since September, the terror spree has left 40 dead and 430 injured. And every one of the terrorists or their families gets a hefty reward from Abbas...

    Mr. Obama calls himself a "night guy," and as president, he has come to consider the long, solitary hours after dark as essential as his time in the Oval Office. Almost every night that he is in the White House, Mr. Obama has dinner at 6:30 with his wife and daughters and then withdraws to the Treaty Room, his private office down the hall from his bedroom on the second floor of the White House residence. There, his closest aides say, he spends four or five hours largely by himself. He works on speeches. He reads the stack of briefing...

    I heard this New York Times take on the Benghazi report mentioned on a noontime political discussion show on Fox News yesterday and found it so absurd that I had to check for myself. Here it is: The New York Times front-page article following the issuance of the report of the House Select Committee on Benghazi included the following paragraph. At a news conference at the Capitol on Tuesday, Mr. Gowdy praised as heroes the Americans who died in the attacks on Sept. 11, 2012. They included Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, a State Department information officer, who...
