    Two CNN producers were arrested Tuesday for trying to sneak into the World Trade Center site to test its security — after The Post reported that a teen made it all the way to the spire of the world’s top terror target. Connor Boals, 26, and Yon Pomrenze, 35, made multiple attempts to get onto Ground Zero before being arrested shortly after 2 p.m., law enforcement sources said.
  • De Blasio planned ‘snow shoveling’ shows at home

    Mayor de Blasio’s attention-drawing turns as an average Joe shoveling snow in front of his Park Slope home in January were premeditated, records show. Hizzoner’s schedule, obtained by The Post under a Freedom of Information Act request, shows the snow clearing was blocked out beforehand — and even planned from the outset to include his popular son’s cameo. “7:00 – 7:20 am: Snow Shoveling Front of Residence with Dante de Blasio,” reads the mayor’s schedule on January 3. A separate entry on January 22, following another blanketing of the city, shows a shorter shoveling shift was planned: “7:00-7:15 AM SNOW...

      In a harsh assessment of the radical, incompetent, and now nearly rudderless Obama regime, Michael Goodwin says that most of us can't truly grasp what a comprehensive mess this once-thriving nation has been put in, not just economically but strategically. Alas, the dawning realization that we are nothing like the America of just 6 years ago is starting to hit with the Crimean crisis, where the spectacle of John Kerry attempting to deal with Vladimir Putin has been characterized as 'a cupcake negotiating with a steak knife'.Remember how Obama told us how if we could just learn to get-along with other countries -even the...

    **SNIP** “It is the recommendation of this office that Marcella Sills’ employment be terminated,” Condon wrote in his 13-page report, adding that his finding have been turned over to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown for further investigation and “whatever action he deems appropriate.” Condon said in his report that the probe of Sills and her assistant-principal, Tonya West, was sparked by The Post’s reporting. The investigation found that Sills flat-out lied about her attendance at the school, didn’t keep a timecard – and then tried to get underlings to fudge or produce fake timecards to cover her tracks.

    Not so fast, Andrew Cuomo. We see what you did there. After publicly bashing conservative New Yorkers as "extreme" people who have no place in his state, the intolerant Democratic governor wants to blame the media for his unmistakable contempt for those who oppose abortion, support gun rights and defend traditional marriage. Newsflash: Crapweasel politicians can backtrack and scapegoat, but they can't hide. When he railed against socially conservative Republican candidates in a radio interview last week, Cuomo hyperbolically singled out those he called "right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay" citizens. Sounding unapologetically purge-tastic, the governor said these political opponents "have no place...

Since 2012, de Blasio has refinanced both homes he owns in Park Slope through the firm where Brooklyn Democratic leader Frank Seddio formerly served as vice president — Wall Street Mortgage Bankers. Public records show that the most recent deal came just three days after de Blasio’s primary victory on Sept. 10, when he refinanced his 11th Street home with the firm for $625,000. In June 2012, he had...

    When I first saw the headline saying Bill Clinton was advising President Obama to “honor his commitment,” I had to laugh. The idea of Monica Lewinsky’s boyfriend as moral referee always cracks me up. Then I got to wondering. Which commitment was Clinton talking about? Is it the one Obama made to the Israeli people, that he had their backs and would never let Iran get a nuclear weapon? Or was it his promise to enforce a “red line” in Syria? Or maybe it was Obama’s promise to “never rest” until we caught the terrorists who killed our ambassador and...

The revelations were spelled out in a deal in which feds agreed not to prosecute in return for Castro's wearing a wire to nail his shady Democrat colleagues. Castro admitted to lying about dozens of (illegals) registered to vote using his address.

Between 2010 and 2011, some 265 diners had their Black and Platinum AmEx card information stolen by waiters at Smith & Wollenski, Capital Grille, Wolfgang's Steakhouse and JoJo, all thanks to Luis Damian Jacas, who pleaded guilty on the brink of opening statements in his now-scuttled enterprise corruption trial at Manhattan Supreme Court. Jacas, 42, of Manhattan, paid waiters $500 per Black card,...

    Some journalistic values are not necessarily the same as human values -- a fact that explains much about the uproar over Tuesday's front-page photo in the New York Post. "Pushed on the subway track, this man is about to die," screamed the headline under the word: "DOOMED."The man's name was Ki Suk Han, a 58-year-old North Korean immigrant from Queens. The photo capturing the last seconds of his life has provoked soul-searching and outrage over journalistic ethics -- or lack of them. Practically nobody is defending the Post for publishing it -- or its photographer for taking it. Aside from...

    In case you missed it, hiring fell a staggering 9 percent last month. The hidden secret is how bad hiring has been throughout the “recovery.” Economists say the recovery started in July 2009 — but the jobs picture still looks more like a recession. New hires not only fell during the recession, they’ve kept on falling during the “recovery” — something that isn’t supposed to happen. The economy has added jobs for 20 months, but very slowly. The total number of jobs has grown by just 1 percent during the 36-month “recovery.” In all past recoveries since 1970, the average...

    What's the real danger of Islamophobia? Think of it as a license to kill. the most pernicious thing about the Islamophobia myth is that once it is used to legitimize Muslim grievances, it is then used to legitimize the violent Muslim response to those grievances. Once you accept that Islamophobia is a serious problem, you have taken the first step to justifying violence as a response to that problem. That is how it began in Israel, once the narrative of Muslim suffering under the “occupation” was accepted; Muslim terrorism became legitimized as a resistance to the occupation. Once you accept...

    Like cockroaches and reality television, old race-baiters die hard. The truth is, however, there just hasn’t been a whole lot for Al Sharpton to do in recent times, except maybe tinker around with his Turbo Tax software. The papers simply aren’t plump with bogus stories of young black girls being raped by white cops anymore, or of nooses being hung from trees by young whites.Not like they used to.Those were the days, eh Al?Today, it’s hard to imagine anyone more insignificant or more detached from the societal realities of American life than Reverend Al. After all, what’s an old...

    The New York Post ^ | November 15, 2008 | Jonah Goldberg
    BY now you've probably heard: The GOP is becoming too regional, too white, too old to compete nationally. Democrats look like the cast of "Rent," while Republicans look like diehard fans of "Matlock" and "Murder, She Wrote." Fine. The GOP needs to win over more Hispanics, young people, suburban women. That sounds plausible. But what does "win over" mean? To listen to many pundits, it means Republicans must become Democrats. The GOP has become too socially conservative, and if it wants to win the support of mainstream voters, it will need to become more socially liberal. If only the party...

    In his movies, Chuck Norris has battled ninjas, drug kingpins and foreign armies. Now he's taking on something far more sinister: the US government. Norris, a conservative columnist and Christian, has written "Black Belt Patriotism," a collection of his "common sense solutions" to the problems facing America. Even five years ago, many would have laughed at the idea of the star of "Sidekicks" as an elder statesman, but Norris demonstrated his clout when his primary endorsement of Mike Huckabee gave the candidate a major boost. He spoke to The Post about his views and whether his tears really cure cancer....

    Paterson's greatest sin is not that he was horny. Rather, he's cheap. It's as if he were in competition with New Jersey's deposed gay governor, Jim McGreevey, who engaged in sexual ménages à trois with his wife and his hot, male driver following dinner at that fine wings-and-skins emporium, TGI Friday's. Paterson's tastes were so low-rent, he made up with his wife, Michelle, with an intimate liaison at the same Manhattan Days Inn where he met with various women whose names escape. Days Inn, David? Was Motel 6 booked? There is one more thing you need to know about New...

    "If you are in a relationship, and it is 'doing absolutly [sic] nothing' for you, makes you feel bad about yourself of situations, just causing unessesary [sic] drama, and ruining things that you may actually care about . . . why would you want that in your life?" She wrote, "Surround yourself around people that [sic] are making moves, and doing what 'they want and love' with their lives, positive energy . . . that's what life all about . . . living." I feel a tear coming on. Two alternate pictures are emerging of Ashley. In one, she's a...
