    Hillary Clinton’s top aides sprang into damage-control mode after hearing about a new book detailing her husband Bill’s affair with socialite neighbor Julie Tauber, according to the latest emails published by Wikileaks. The book was “The First Family In Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal The Hidden Lives Of Presidents” by Clinton gadfly Edward Klein — and news of its impending publication sent the Clinton inner circle scrambling to set up a conference call. ...

  • City pondered action on Trump sign: Although campaign signs are excluded from ordinance

    10/21/2016 11:29:34 AM PDT · by Behind Liberal Lines · 15 replies
    GENEVA — A massive sign promoting presidential candidate Donald Trump has caused quite a stir. Daryl Soscia installed the sign, along with cardboard Trump cutouts on either side, on his front lawn at 20 Copeland Ave. It is illuminated at night and also has flags on each side. City Manager Matt Horn said last week the city’s sign ordinance excludes political signs. He provided this text from the city’s definition of a sign: “‘Sign’ includes a billboard, neon tube, fluorescent tube, or other artificial light or string of lights outlining or hung upon any part of a building or lot...

    Last night there was somewhat of a ritualistic dinner held. It was the Al Smith dinner, a white-tie affair, and a ritual that Presidential candidates, very late in the game, have usually taken part in. This year was no different, with both Hillary and Trump sporting their white-tie best. But this is not your usual sort of passe' thing. No, it's a benefit, and as are many benefits in New York it was stuffed with priestly types and an extraordinary price tag -- but, as is frequently the case when there are so many with a priestly bent headlining the...

Supporters gathered at Warren and Pat Tipton’s home to hear the mayor at an event to promote early voting. Mr. de Blasio, who ran Mrs. Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign, said those are the qualities voters should value. “And that’s what I want in a president,” he said. “I think we need to really dwell on that. Do we want a president who is going to have a solidity to keep going no matter what’s...

The increase, from $8,652 to $14,104, has the couple re-considering their plan to retire in the Kenmore Avenue home, where they raised their kids. They're looking at homes in Indiana "as a backup plan" for the time when Roberta retires in a few years, said Jeff, who is already retired. "We have lived in our home for almost 39 years...

    BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — Four dead teenagers. Two weeks. One town. And a ruthless gang, the authorities say, was most likely responsible for the toll. Again. On Sept. 13, Nisa Mickens, 15, and her best friend, Kayla Cuevas, 16, were murdered, their battered bodies found near an elementary school here. A week later and just two miles away, the skeletal remains of two more teenagers — identified as Oscar Acosta, 19, and Miguel Garcia-Moran, 15 — were found in the woods near a psychiatric hospital. Oscar had been missing since May, Miguel since February. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

    An Upstate New York Congressman has introduced a new bill that would add life in prison or death as possible penalties for drug dealers who sell heroin connected to fatal overdoses. Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY 23rd District) introduced the HELP Act this week, WIVB-TV reported. The acronym stands for "Help Ensure Lives are Protected."

    President Hassan Rouhani’s trips to New York have always been followed by some controversy inside Iran. On his first trip, which took place in September 2013, he ended up having a phone conversation with the US president. On his third trip, in September 2015, his Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif shook hands with President Barack Obama. However, Rouhani’s latest trip to New York on Sept. 20-22, which was his last trip to New York during his first term as the president of Iran, was not controversial. Since Rouhani’s first term is coming to an end and the high-ranking officials of...

    It's been months since the passing of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, but Democrats are still seemingly celebrating his death because it paves the way for their political purposes. At The Atlantic’s Washington Ideas Forum on Thursday, Labor Secretary Tom Perez casually noted that Scalia's death helped pave the way for union membership across the country. ... Unfortunately, Perez's comments are not isolated. In August, Ohio Senate Candidate Ted Strickland actually said “the death of Scalia saved labor” at an AFL-CIO event.
