    Less than two weeks after the terrorist bombings in New Jersey and New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is launching a new campaign against the “negative rhetoric targeting Muslim communities” that the city says gets worse after “terrorist incidents.” A press release from the city on Monday explained the reasoning for the new anti-anti-Islam efforts: “Across the country, hateful speech has made Muslim residents the target of misguided attacks and threats, especially in the aftermath of terrorist incidents,” states a press release from the city.

    Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz has struck a nerve. The pastor took to Facebook Sunday to explain why his church — made up of Hillsong’s NYC campuses — will not be using the phrase “all lives matter.” Instead, Lentz wrote, his church will be saying “black lives matter.” The pastor wrote: At THIS church, we are not saying ‘all lives matter’ right now because this is a logical assumption that most reasonable people agree with. All lives are not at risk right now. We ARE saying BLACK LIVES MATTER. Because, right now, black lives apparently are worth LESS on our...

    New York City mayor Bill de Blasio announced a couple of days after U.S. citizen and Afghani immigrant Ahmad Khan Rahami’s terrorist attack had injured 29 in his city that this was the time to bring in more Muslim immigrants. The timing of the Mayor’s immigration comment, which had a forced, agenda-driven quality was odd. Many New Yorkers certainly wished for a brief period of reflection, at least, before plunging willy-nilly back into the quixotic pursuit of the multicultural dream. The Mayor had just met with his London political and ideological counterpart, Sadiq Khan, who’d stated that terrorism was part...

    (REUTERS) One would expect voters from the heavily Democratic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill to pick presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in the Nov. 8 general election. Just don’t expect them to advertise it. Like lawns and windowsills in liberal pockets across the country, much of the neighborhood is bereft of pro-Clinton signage in the final weeks before the election. It’s a stark contrast to the 2012 and 2008 campaigns, when President Barack Obama whipped up a frenzy of support from Democrats and his signature “Hope” and “Forward” signs were ubiquitous.

    The man suspected of planting bombs in New York City and New Jersey was able to use the popular online bidding site eBay to secretly collect bomb components starting months ago, officials allege in court documents. Ahmad Rahami, the 28-year-old who was apprehended Monday after a shootout with police, purportedly began plans for a bombing in mid-June when he purchased more than 200 round lead and steel balls designed as slingshot ammunition. "I know, based on my training, experience, and conversations with other law enforcement officials, that ball bearings can be used in improvised explosives to increase fragmentation and thus...

Even as the widening probe into the bombings continued across this region, authorities sought to reassure residents that the the bombings and additional explosives appeared to be the work...

Obama talked about the importance of this election — “the most important election of our lifetime” — and discussed why he believes Clinton is failing to run away with it. “[T]his should not be...

The problem is when you say the word ‘terror’ because of word association it automatically assumes you are talking about people of the Muslim faith. And that is why he said an intentional act and not terrorism because we don’t know if it was Muslim. None of these organizations...
