    Nechemya Weberman, an unlicensed counselor accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in his care, testified Wednesday that he ripped off a charity he founded ostensibly to help poor Brooklynites. “You used this not-for-profit for personal gain?” asked a Brooklyn prosecutor. “Yes I did,” Weberman replied, admitting that he spent donations meant for his group, B’Lev V’Nefesh, on tuition for his kids’ yeshiva — and that its cash was also spent at stores like BMG Corset & Lingerie. Creepy, sure. But par for the course in New York, where politicians routinely turn nonprofits into personal piggy banks. For example:

    On the very day that Apple announced it will begin building more computers in the United States, a who’s who of the business world called for a major push to educate the next generation of technology workers. Speaking at a forum sponsored by the Daily News and U.S. News & World Report, IBM Vice President Stanley Litow projected that the so-called STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math — will spawn 14 million new jobs in the near future. But Google Chairman Eric Schmidt warned that the American education system will need a “massive overhaul” for America’s young people...

    Police on Monday night released new surveillance video in the search for a suspect who shoved a man onto the subway tracks for a train to strike him and kill him. As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, in a city built on subways, where millions move around town by train, it could have happened to anyone. The incident happened around 12:30 p.m. at a subway station at 49th Street and 7th Avenue, just blocks off Times Square. A surveillance image of the man wanted for allegedly pushing a man in front of a subway train in Midtown, killing him. (Credit:...

    Man hit by vandals after helping Sandy cleanup Art McFarland, 1202/2012HUNTINGTON (WABC) -- Paul Nosak, a tree-servicer owner says he had always dreamed of bringing his company to New York and making a difference. Nosak was part of a clean-up outside the Huntington Baptist Church, where several huge trees had fallen on the roof. A local tree service originally said that the removal of the trees would have to wait until January...Nosak then saw the damage as he passed through the neighborhood by chance. He then walked into the church to offer his immediate services...A team of eight workers joined...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 11/30/2012 | Scott DiSavino
    New York energy regulators told power companies in New York City to develop plans to keep the lights on in the Big Apple in case the giant Indian Point nuclear power plant, which supplies about a quarter of the city's electricity, is forced to shut down. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants the two reactors at Indian Point shut when their operating licenses expire in 2013 and 2015 in part because the nuclear plant is located in the New York metropolitan area, home to some 19 million people. The governor has said even the most unlikely possibility of an accident...

    Vote Tally Error Adds to Maffei’s Lead in Congressional Race Posted on November 8, 2012 by Dave Bullard A clerk’s election night typo in Cayuga County was fixed Wednesday, giving Democrat Dan Maffei an extra 2,000 vote margin in his bid to return to Congress. Cayuga County Elections Commissioner Kate Lacey said a clerk mistyped the amount of votes cast for Republican incumbent Ann Marie Buerkle in the town of Brutus. Fixing the error and cleaning up a few other minor math issues resulted in a swing of 1,997 votes in Maffei’s direction, giving him an almost-unbeatable hold on the...

    A FEMA disaster recovery center in a Hurricane Sandy-ravaged corner of Staten Island that was supposed to provide shelter, food and assistance to hurricane victims Wednesday morning went MIA, posting a sign saying that they were closed due to the approaching nor’easter. A printed paper sign taped to the front door of on the center at 6581 Hylan Blvd. at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday read “FEMA Center Closed Due to Weather.” The front doors of the disaster recovery center, which is housed inside the Mount Lorretto Catholic Youth Organization, were unlocked, but there was no staff anywhere in sight for at...

    The disgusting, lynch mob mentality that has arisen from the Trayvon Martin shooting case places us several notches towards race riots this summer. To the balanced observer, Zimmerman really does appear to have likely shot Martin in self defense. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton and Barack Hussein Obama started babbling before all the facts were in. These collectivist droids seldom retreat from any lie ... they simply magnify it further. If George Zimmerman is acquitted the fuse will light. Remember Rodney King? If you live in an urban environment, don't be stupid. Pay attention! -------------------------cut-------------------------- EXTRA - 10/31/12 watch the...
  • NYS Board Of Elections: It’s Possible Voting May Be Permitted Beyond Tuesday

    11/03/2012 7:30:28 AM PDT · by tsowellfan · 28 replies
    New York state law allows for an extra day of voting if turnout is drastically suppressed because of a natural disaster like Superstorm Sandy. That could potentially postpone state, congressional and even presidential election results beyond Tuesday’s Election Day. State Board of Elections spokesman John Conklin confirmed Friday that the law permits election commissioners to create a second day of voting if the turnout in any county is less than 25 percent of the total number of registered voters...

    While watching television Friday evening, I was shocked to see my state’s junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, in a campaign ad. After all, this is New York and she’s a Democrat, which translates into anonymity for her opponent and her enjoyment of about an 87 point lead in the polls (okay, I lied; it’s only 43), and air time in NY’s market is pricey. Perhaps, I thought, she just wanted a tax write-off or vanity compelled her to put her face on TV. Then again, maybe she just wanted to see how many elements of propaganda could fit into a 30-second...

Well, I've got some sound bites from people from Staten Island and from Queens. They're not happy up there. In fact, this is gonna get worse -- much worse -- before it gets better, and now they're gonna run the New York marathon. Do you know what Bloomberg's doing? They are kicking refugees, essentially, out of hotels to make room for people coming into town for the marathon. "Well, we need the money! Oh, yeah, we need the economic...

    Gov. Cuomo said the gas crisis caused by Superstorm Sandy should ease now that the Coast Guard has lifted the tanker restrictions in the harbor.Cuomo during a pre-taped interview with Sirius/XM radio, said the Coast Guard closed New York Harbor because containers blew off ships that could cause navigation and other problems, including hull breaches.That kept gas tankers from coming to New York City.On Thursday, the restrictions were lifted, Cuomo said."The fuel situation should be abated soon," he said.He warned against price gauging, saying the Attorney General's Office will prosecute anyone who does.Cuomo during the interview said he has to...

    In an act of sheer idiocy, Mayor Michael Bloomberg decided that the New York City Marathon should still be held. His decision comes despite the fact that the city is still struggling to recover from “Superstomr Sandy.” We’re talking about a city where children are dumpster diving for food, yet the Mayor thinks an event where out of town runners trot through storm damaged boroughs while being handed free energy bars and water is a good idea? The marathon will kick off in Staten Island where bodies are still being pulled from the rubble. The marathon is still a go,...

    Drivers and homeowners scrambled to secure fuel for their cars and generators in the U.S. Northeast on Wednesday as storm-hit gasoline stations started to run dry. More than half of all gasoline service stations in the New York City area and New Jersey were shut because of depleted fuel supplies and power outages, frustrating attempts to restore normal life, industry officials said. Reports of long lines, dark stations and empty tanks circulated across the region. Some station owners were unable to pump fuel due to a lack of power, while others quickly ran their tanks dry because of increased demand...
