    National Review Online ^ | May 3, 2012 | Interview of Wendy Long by Kathryn Jean Lopez
    The Left has accused Republicans of a “war on women,” but New York Democratic senator Kirsten Gillibrand could wind up running against a woman in the fall. The contest for who will face Democrat Gillibrand is on, and Wendy Long discusses what a Senator Long would look like with Kathryn Jean Lopez. KATHRYN JEAN LOPEZ: What do you have against Senator Gillibrand?WENDY LONG:  National Journal recently came out with its annual congressional rankings — the gold standard in political measuring sticks.

    Christian Post ^ | 05/04/2012 | Eric Metaxas
    When Tim Tebow was traded from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets, media reports focused on two issues: first, how would the trade affect starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez? And second, how would the unapologetically evangelical Tebow do in New York City? More than one Christian writer has even referred to my hometown as "Babylon."Now, if all you have to go on are television and movies, then I can see why you might think that New York is particularly hostile to Christians and Christianity. Apart from weddings, I can't recall any fictional New Yorkers attending church services.The key is...
  • Banks Get White Powder Envelopes, But Tests Show They're Non-Toxic

    05/01/2012 1:31:39 AM PDT · by Biggirl · 11 replies ^ | May 1,2012 | Richard Esposito
    Envelopes containing suspicious powder were sent through the mail to at least seven locations in Manhattan, primarily Wells Fargo banks, police officials said. "This is a reminder that you are not in control," said a message that arrived with the envelopes. "Just in case you needed some incentive to stop working we have a little surprise for you. Think fast you have seconds." Several samples tested negative -- evidently containing corn starch, police said. Later, all the powder samples were determined to be non-toxic, The Associated Press reported.

  • Public quick to pull trigger on easier access to pistol permits(NY)

    BATAVIA — Patty Glomb, recording clerk in the Genesee County Clerk’s Office, sat at her desk Tuesday and motioned to her left and right, then behind and in front of her. Her work space in County Building 1 was surrounded by drawers and cabinets full of file folders, all of them applications from county residents for new, amended or upgraded pistol permits. She and her co-workers, are, pun intended, under the gun. “It’s almost impossible to keep up,” Glomb said. The backlog is partly a result of a change in Genesee County policy that makes it easier to obtain a...

    Almost a million images of New York and its municipal operations have been made public for the first time on the internet. The city's Department of Records officially announced the debut of the photo database. Culled from the Municipal Archives collection of more than 2.2 million images going back to the mid-1800s, the 870,000 photographs feature all manner of city oversight --from stately ports and bridges to grisly gangland killings.

    There’s a terrorist in City Hall. The mouthpiece for Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez (D-Manhattan) is a cop-hating con who served federal prison time for torching an Army recruitment center in The Bronx, The Post has learned. David Segal, 26, who grew up in leafy Litchfield, Conn., landed the spokesman job last March even after disclosing the arrest to Council Speaker Christine Quinn’s office, which conducts the background checks, sources said. In January 2005, Segal threw a burning rag into the Parkchester facility —and was carrying a note that described a “wave of violence” targeting military complexes in the Northeast. Before he...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Mitt Romney may be the presumptive GOP nominee against Democratic President Barack Obama, but Republican primaries will still be held in New York and elsewhere tomorrow. Guy Molinari, Romney's state campaign director, said the Romney forces are taking nothing for granted, looking to battle Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich across the Empire State, where 95 delegates are at stake. "We have to redouble our efforts and go for a clean sweep," said Molinari. "We want to win every congressional district." And that includes Staten Island. Even though Molinari said informal tracking shows Romney is "very strong"...

    The “1 percent” comes in piece. Dozens of New York City’s billionaires, real-estate moguls and Wall Street CEOs are really loaded, according to the NYPD’s gun-permit list obtained by The Post under the Freedom of Information Act. Top guns include Donald Trump, Marvel Comics head Isaac Perlmutter and Gristedes chairman and mayoral wannabe John Catsimatidis. Billionaire cosmetics heir Ron Lauder — who once dumped $4 million of his own cash on an effort to install term limits for city pols, only to do a complete 180 and back anti-gun zealot Mayor Bloomberg’s third term — also packs heat. Real estate...

  • Do 8 cop shootings trump stop-and-frisk concerns?(NY)(Poll to freep)

    Eight New York City police officers have been shot in the past four months. Illegal guns from out of state “are turning our city into a shooting gallery,” Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told the New York Daily News this week. His department’s controversial stop-and-frisk polices uncovered 800 such guns last year. “There is a reason why we continue to be proactive on the street,” Mr. Kelly said. But critics of his stop-and-frisk practices say that tens of thousands of Constitutionally wrong searches conducted annually in mostly minority neighborhoods do not a single right make. Does the spree of recent cop-shootings...

    A day before Easter, the head of New York's Roman Catholic archdiocese faced a challenge to his stance on gay rights: the resignation of a church charity board member who says he's "had enough" of the cardinal's attitude. Joseph Amodeo told The Associated Press on Saturday that he quit the junior board of the city's Catholic Charities after Cardinal Timothy Dolan failed to respond to a "call for help" for homeless youths who are not heterosexual. "As someone who believes in the message of love enshrined in the teachings of Christ, I find it disheartening that a man of God...

    New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly is under criticism for his "stop-and-frisk" policies that took 800 guns off the streets in 2011. Kelly sees his actions as saving lives, but pro-gun groups like the NRA do not. Nevertheless, Kelly is sticking to his proverbial guns to get firearms off the streets, whether they be new or old. He told the NY Daily News: “But here is the thing about old guns. They can be around a very long time, and then you load them and pull the trigger and they still work, against a cop or anybody else.” “These...

    We posted a piece Saturday on the ominous re-appearance of (cue scary music) “cop-killer” bullets in New York. It will probably come as an Earth-shattering, illusion-destroying revelation, but you need to hear the truth from someone, so here it is – sometimes reporters make mistakes. And the author of the New York Post article RF referred to, Kristan Conley, misquoted firearms instructor Kenneth Cooper. Well, that’s what he tells us, anyway. So we invited him to set the record straight. We hope Ken isn’t holding his breath until he gets the same treatment from the Post . . . I...

    NEWTOWN, Conn --( On Friday evening, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the state budget into law immediately eliminating the Combined Ballistics Identification System (CoBIS), the state’s ineffective ballistic identification database. Just as important, the budget did not contain a microstamping provision sought by anti-gun legislators. This is a major victory for manufacturers, retailers and law-abiding firearms owners throughout New York. NSSF thanks the governor and Senate Republicans for protecting New Yorkers’ Second Amendment rights. The CoBIS was put in place in 2000 by then Gov. George Pataki. In the words of the New York Post today: “Trouble is, the...
