    So much for Democrats coming together in New York’s 14th congressional district. A feud erupted Thursday on Twitter between Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and outgoing Democratic Rep. Joseph Crowley -- the longtime congressman Ocasio-Cortez shockingly defeated in New York’s primaries last month. The victor claimed the incumbent is now mounting a third-party bid. “.@repjoecrowley stated on live TV that he would absolutely support my candidacy,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Thursday. “Instead, he’s stood me up for all 3 scheduled concession calls.” The 28-year-old progressive Democrat added: “Now, he’s mounting a 3rd party challenge against me and the Democratic Party- and against the...

    QUEENSBURY — A medical device company has gone on a hiring spree after buying Bard, which has a well-known local manufacturing plant.

The company needs engineers, supervisors, workers trained in the “continuous improvement” efficiency system and many other positions. A flyer being circulated around the region says the company is also looking for manufacturing team members, with no previous experience needed. The openings are listed at www.crbard.com/careers.

    QUEENS, N.Y. ― Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s stunning primary victory over powerful U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley in the working-class New York district stretching from the Bronx to Queens is likely to propel her avowedly left-wing platform into the Democratic mainstream as the 2018 midterm elections heat up. But her detailed proposals to deal with climate change could prove among the most influential at a time when the Democrats have failed to rally around any policy that could feasibly reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically enough to make a difference. Ocasio-Cortez outlined plans to transition the United States to a 100 percent renewable energy...

    NEW YORK — Police arrested five people Sunday in connection with a brutal machete attack on a teen outside a Bronx bodega earlier in the week. Lesandro Guzman-Feliz, 15, was pulled out of the Cruz and Chiky grocery Wednesday by members of the Dominican gang Trinitarios, who beat him, hacked him with a machete and left him to die on the sidewalk outside the store in what officials believe was a case of mistaken identity, according to the New York Post. Gang members wrongly believed Guzman-Feliz was in a revenge sex video posted online that featured a relative of one...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to take steps to curb ozone pollution that blows into New York and Connecticut from five other states. The decision by U.S. District Judge John Koeltl in Manhattan is a victory for New York’s and Connecticut’s attorneys general, Barbara Underwood and George Jepsen. Their offices sued EPA administrator Scott Pruitt in January, accusing him of ignoring his responsibilities under the federal Clean Air Act to reduce pollution.

    New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood is pretty rankled by President Donald Trump’s pardon of Dinesh D’Souza. Underwood is so irritated, she’s calling for New York to change what she’s calling the “double jeopardy loophole” to prevent things like this from happening again. “President Trump’s latest pardon makes crystal clear his willingness to use his pardon power to thwart the cause of justice, rather than advance it. By pardoning Dinesh D’Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon. First it was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Then it was...

    Maryland tunnel digger accused of killing pal feared North Korea missile attack By Nicole Hensley May 31, 2018 | 7:45 PM A man was charged in the death of a pal killed while digging a secret network of tunnels under his Maryland home he hoped would save him from North Korea’s budding nuclear missile program, according to his lawyer. After months of nuclear weapon tests by the isolated nation last year, 27-year-old Daniel Beckwitt began construction on an underground bunker to protect himself from a possible intercontinental ballistic missile attack at his Bethesda property. The digger’s paranoia was fueled by...

    It started with money, as it so often does in New York. A crisp $100 bill slipped across the smooth surface of the mid-century-inspired concierge desk at 11 Howard, the sleek new boutique hotel in Soho. Looking up, Neffatari Davis, the 25-year-old concierge, who goes by “Neff,” was surprised to see the cash had come from a young woman who seemed to be around her age. She had a heart-shaped face and pouty lips surrounded by a wild tangle of red hair, her eyes framed by incongruously chunky black glasses that Neff, an aspiring cinematographer with an eye for detail,...

    At 8:47 a.m. Eastern, the CNN host set up the segment: "An Army veteran running for Congress in upstate New York is getting a lot of attention with a campaign ad that seems to defy some of the interests of his own possible gun rights constituents." After running the ad which depicts children dressed as combat soldiers with Ryan commenting that the U.S. should either ban "assault weapons" or equip children to fight back against them, Camerota introduced her guest and began by posing: "So those are striking images. What's your goal with that ad?" As Ryan argued in favor...

A notation at the bottom states the sign is paid for by the Ford family. Public records show the billboard is owned by Ron Ford.

    **SNIP** In the opening monologue on the latest episode of her weekly cable program, “Full Frontal,” Bee went on a coarse tirade that called the domestic abuse allegations against Schneiderman “especially infuriating, given his supposed woke bae-ness.” “Now, Schneiderman was a guest on my show, so this is a little complicated for me to talk about, but — just kidding, it’s not complicated. F–k you, Eric Schneiderman!” she said, to cheers and applause from the audience. “No, no, let me say it louder,” Bee interrupted, before repeating the insult with audio reverb added.

    'The tactics employed by these public officials are aimed to deprive the NRA of its First Amendment right' The National Rifle Association filed suit against the New York State Department of Financial Services and Governor Andrew Cuomo (D.) on Friday, alleging they violated the group's First Amendment rights. The lawsuit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York, said New York engaged in a "viewpoint-based discrimination campaign" against the NRA and its members. It claims that the governor and regulatory agency he oversees have engaged in a pressure campaign against financial institutions that deal with...

    New York Democratic leaders say they want more people to vote — except they won’t allow anyone but registered Democrats to vote in party primaries. The New York State Democratic Party plans on blocking a proposed resolution at its May 23-24 convention that would allow independent or “unaffiliated” voters to vote in this year’s Democratic primary for governor. New York’s restrictive voting laws became a national embarrassment in 2016 as many younger voters realized they couldn’t vote for Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary against Hillary Clinton because they missed the deadline to enroll as Democrats.

It appears to be the final long-form interview Schneiderman gave while in office.
