  • CNN Sister Network TNT Announces New Sponsorship of Trump Assassination Play

    06/14/2017 3:14:30 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 49 replies ^ | June 14, 2017
    CNN sister network TNT will be sponsoring the final two performances this weekend of the Trump assassination play Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar by the Public Theater in New York City’s Central Park. The cable network is using the sponsorship of the graphic assassination of President Donald Trump on stage to promote a new series about Shakespeare, Will, scheduled to premiere on July 10. The announcement follows the recent loss of sponsorships and controversy surrounding the Oskar Eustis-helmed production, which depicts Caesar as a Trump-like politician.

    Federal prosecutors have charged two U.S. citizens with providing material support to Hezbollah and helping the Iranian-backed Lebanese terror group prepare potential attacks in America and Panama. The charges, announced last Thursday after the men were arrested June 1, show that Iran’s terror proxies roam far beyond the Middle East. The FBI and New York Police Department carried out the investigation, which resulted in a raft of terror-related charges for naturalized citizens Ali Kourani of the Bronx and Samer el Debek of Dearborn, Mich. Prosecutors say Hezbollah recruited the men as “operatives,” provided them with “military-style training,” then gave them...

    Delta Airlines announced on Sunday that it was withdrawing its sponsorship of New York City’s nonprofit Public Theater over a new Shakespeare in the Park production of “Julius Caesar” featuring a facsimile of Donald Trump in the title role meeting a very bloody end. “No matter what your political stance may be, the graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the company said in a statement, ending a four-year-old sponsorship. “Their artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste. We have notified...

    What in the name of RuPaul is wrong with the New York City Board of Education? Parents are furious after children as young as 5-years-old were exposed to an erotic drag show performance at what was supposed to be a school district talent show. “My first reaction was what the hell is going on,” parent Raquel Morales told me. The New York Daily News described the lewd performance as “complete with gyrations, tongue gymnastics and a flashed G-string.” The May 25th performance shocked and enraged parents who could not believe the school district would allow a grown man to spread...

    New York City and others lit buildings up in green Thursday night to show support for the Paris climate accord following President Donald Trump’s announcement that the United States will withdraw from the agreement. “City Hall shines green tonight because New York City will honor the goals of the #ParisAgreement,” Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote in a tweet Thursday. The mayor had previously committed to honoring the accord in the city, despite Trump’s decision. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who directed One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower) and the Kosciuszko Bridge to be lit green, also committed...

    State secessionist movements are long shots at best, but New Yorkers pushing for a breakup between the Big Apple and upstate are counting on the very real possibility of a constitutional convention to boost their odds. Voters will decide in November whether to hold a statewide constitutional convention in 2019, thanks to the New York State Constitution, which allows for such an event every 20 years. It’s a rare opportunity that the Divide NYS Caucus hopes to seize. “It’s time to cease fantasizing that NYS legislators have the best interests of the people in mind,” the caucus said in a...

    Gee whiz, artists are so sensitive! City sculptor Alex Gardega — seething over the “Fearless Girl” statue being placed across from Wall Street’s “Charging Bull” — has decided to retaliate with a work of his own. Gardega created a statue of a small dog, titled “Pissing Pug,” and his sloppily crafted pooch takes direct aim at “Fearless Girl” — or, at least, at her left leg. “This is corporate nonsense,” Gardega told The Post of “Fearless Girl,” saying it was put opposite artist Arturo Di Modica’s famed bull as a publicity stunt by a Boston-based financial firm.

    The de Blasio administration, an administration plagued with corruption and poor policy, can now add one more item to their laundry list: child porn. Jacob Schwartz, 29, was a de Blasio administration staffer and a rising young Democratic figure before revelations came out about his obsession with child porn. Schwartz was popped for having over 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop. Some of the material discovered involved baby girls aging as young as 6 months old, court documents revealed Friday. NYPD computer-crimes investigators accepted Schwartz’s surrender Thursday morning. Schwartz has been under investigation since March 29, 2017, when...

  • WATCH: NYC Anti-Sharia Law Rally Draws Crowd, Powerful Speakers

    Over 100 people attended today’s anti-terrorism rally in New York City, wherein a wealth of new right and new media figures attended, spoke, and live-streamed the day’s events. Despite the rain, the anti-extremism, anti-Sharia, anti-terrorism rally went off without a hitch. The crowd was excited and animated and the speakers were rousing in their condemnation of terrorism, Islamic extremism, and Sharia Law. At the heart of the rally was the condemnation of the empowerment of a figure like Linda Sarsour who has been given a platform of open-arms from the left. She is only famous, of course, because of her...

    As other competitors test the Republican mayoral primary waters, the party’s best-funded candidate Paul Massey says he’s in it to win it. “I’m the competitor for the current mayor now, I think people understand that,” Massey said. Massey spoke at an independent Catholic school in Flatbush not run by the city — a week after having hip surgery, touring the building while wearing tapered maroon sweatpants, slip-on shoes, and with the help of a cane adorned with a silver-colored lion as the handle.

    Republicans haven’t quite settled on a mayoral candidate yet, but they do seem to have ruled one person out: Bo Dietl. Dietl’s longshot bid to be the party’s nominee despite not being a registered member of it would require an OK from three of the five county Republican committees — but the five party leaders spoke by phone on Saturday, a conversation which included “no support for Mr. Dietl,” Queens GOP Chair and former congressman Bob Turner said Wednesday as he endorsed Republican Paul Massey.

    The Republican field for the mayor’s race has winnowed down to two major candidates -- real estate executive Paul Massey and state Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis -- and a few longshot contenders with a minimal presence on the campaign trail. With just four months till the September primary and Malliotakis only in the race a few weeks, early signs indicate Republican Party officials may be split on Massey and Malliotakis while a contentious primary battle has quickly emerged.

    The bid by Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis for mayor — even if she loses — is the best thing to happen to New York Republicans in a long time. While President Trump and national Republicans continue a misguided campaign to intimidate immigrants and strip funding from cities, local party leaders have been trying to present a different face of Republicanism to a voting public growing younger and more diverse every day. Malliotakis fits the bill. She is the daughter of immigrants from Cuba and Greece, and at age 36 counts as a millennial, winning acclaim in 2013 as one of the...

    Yesterday was apparently “Equal Pay Day!” but only in New York City. Similar to Tax Freedom Day, the actual Equal Pay Day was back on April 4th and was described as how far into 2017 women would supposedly have to work on average to earn the same amount of money a man in the same job would have made in 2016. (If you really want to tick off anyone celebrating this event, send them to read the Wikipedia Background section on the subject, which actually pegs it pretty well.)The somewhat delayed holiday was observed in New York City in...
