    **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.

    Former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman didn't want to answer questions about the #MeToo movement in the days before abuse allegations against him were made public, according to an interview he gave to Alec Baldwin published Tuesday. **SNIP** Just four days before the allegations were made public, Schneiderman sat down for an interview with Alec Baldwin for his WNYC Studios podcast "Here's The Thing."

The longtime employee, who gave his name as Henry, told The Post he was working inside near the service entrance when the disgraced ex-attorney general begged him for help. “Henry, will you walk in front of me because the press are out there waiting for me?” Henry recalled Schneiderman saying.

    A state lawmaker from New York City has authored a bill that would end riflery, trap shooting and archery as a sport in public schools. Assemblywoman Linda B. Rosenthal, a Democrat who represents the 67th Assembly District in western Manhattan, introduced the bill on April 20. At this point, there is no co-sponsor for it in the state Senate. The bill, A10428, which was sent to the Assembly's Education Committee, would amend the state's Education Law and calls for the "prohibition of marksmanship and/or shooting programs in public schools" - a change that "shall take effect immediately."

    n the United States, politicians are not supposed to be able to prevent the opposition from meeting or speaking.When Progressives dominated the mass media, the left celebrated the First Amendment.  In 1963, the Harvard-Radcliff Democratic Club invited George Wallace to speak, and there were no protests or threats of violence.  Leftists were all for free speech and rights of an assembly when they had little opposition in organs of mass media. Times have changed. The Progressives no longer have an effective monopoly in the media. Now, heavier-handed tactics are resorted to. Democrat politicians in New York pressured a Staten...
