  • NYPD Fed Up With Anti-Cop “Chaos” In The Big Apple: Total Disrespect for the Peacekeepers

    You probably saw the viral video of people throwing buckets of water on police in New York City when they were in the process of making an arrest. The police responded curiously by… not responding at all. This appeared to embolden the locals, who have taken to mocking and throwing things at cops in multiple neighborhoods. This led to a mob in Brooklyn literally pelting police with objects thrown from rooftops and shots being fired, leaving three officers with (thankfully) minor injuries. The response from Mayor de Blasio was lethargic at best and now the cops appear to have...
  • Republican challengers rushing to unseat Ocasio-Cortez

    There aren’t a whole lot of Republicans in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Queens and Bronx district, but the few there are all seem to want to run against the firebrand progressive congresswoman. Seven Republicans have already filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for the seat next year, and at least one more is publicly considering a run. Any Republican nominee will face distinctly long odds to unseat one of the highest profile members of Congress in an overwhelmingly Democratic district, but that has not stopped would-be challengers from lining up for the chance to take her on. And whoever...

    Seeing poor white people makes me happy June 11, 2019 By Nicholas Powers “Should I kick him in the face? Hard? No, chill, he’s not worth it. But why is this white boy begging for money in a Black neighborhood? Is he stupid?” I shake the evil out of my head and go into the subway. He comes every Spring. The homeless white boy flaps down like a dirty migratory bird, makes himself a nest from garbage and sleeps on the sidewalk. A sign on his shopping cart asks for money—I never give. I should tho ‘cause he makes me...
  • Some jail staffers not cooperating with DOJ investigation into Epstein suicide, source says

    Personnel at the New York City prison where accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide last week have not been initially cooperative with investigators from the Department of Justice, a federal source told Fox News Friday. Attorney General William Barr sent two senior DOJ officials to personally visit the Metropolitan Correctional Center and speak with staff from the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) in order to gather information on Epstein’s death after Barr said officials uncovered “serious irregularities” at the jail, a senior DOJ official told Fox News. The officials have been on site since Thursday and the FBI and...

    Mayor de Blasio urged troubled city cops to seek help from ThriveNYC amid the NYPD’s suicide epidemic — days after the mental-health initiative spearheaded by his wife bailed on an event for first responders, The Post has learned. “There is no feeling worse than wanting to help someone and not knowing how,” wrote de Blasio in a department-wide ­e-mail, a copy of which was obtained by The Post, in which he recounts losing his World War II-veteran dad to suicide when the future mayor was 18. “Yesterday, we lost our eighth NYPD officer to suicide this year,” wrote de Blasio...

    Editor's note: This column was co-written with Charles Vavruska.New York City Council Member Robert Holden (D-Queens) and eight other lawmakers wrote Mayor Bill de Blasio and asked him to replace Education Chancellor Richard Carranza, if he “continues to divide the city.” The June 15 letter stated that Gotham “needs a chancellor who promotes education, not division.” It accused Carranza of “releasing divisive statements directed toward parents and students” and “changing policies based on ethnicity rather than efficacy.” After more than a year of suffering Carranza’s onslaught of racial fetishism, local public-school parents were relieved that the cavalry finally arrived.Carranza stumbled...

    Rosie Ruiz, whose name is notoriously synonymous with marathon cheating, died on July 8, from cancer, according to an obituary posted by her family in Palm Beach, Florida. She was 66 and known as Rosie M. Vivas. Ruiz infamously jumped into the 1980 Boston Marathon in the final stretch of the race and claimed the women’s win ahead of the true champion, Jacqueline Gareau of Québec. Runners and fans have always resented that Ruiz basked in acclamation for her supposed come-from-behind victory and refused to admit guilt. Gareau had to cross the finish line with no recognition of her course...

    New York Mayor and presidential candidate Bill de Blasio once ordered his security detail to move his daughter Chiara out of her Brooklyn apartment at tax-payers' expense, multiple sources have claimed. Members of the NYPD's Executive Protection Unit were called upon by the city's top official, who is seeking the Democratic Party's nomination for president, to move his daughter out of her Sunset Park flat under the cover of night about a year ago, reports the Daily News. Chiara, who is now 24, lived in the apartment at 4th Avenue and 56th Street for roughly two years, according to a...

    2020 candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was guest on Friday’s The View where he received ample praise from the liberal co-hosts but was called out by hosts Meghan McCain and Ana Navarro. Co-host Sunny Hostin admitted that she didn’t understand why de Blasio’s approval ratings were low in New York, considering all of his “terrific accomplishments.” She gushed that his policies should be copied everywhere across the country: Mayor of New York City, you created universal pre-k, you expanded paid sick leave, and reduced stop and frisk policing, thank you. You oversaw the city's 15 minimum...

    Are we entering a period of political violence? A time when thugs aligned either with governments or embittered out-of-power revanchists determine the political discourse? You'd think all political parties would be right there to condemn violent thuggery in place of what they supposedly stand for, which is peaceful democratic transitions. So the latest news is that a New York gallery owner, Jalangir Turan, was assaulted by a thug or group of thugs, identified as "teens" in some reports, for his wearing a red MAGA hat. Here is the video: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO The New York Post has signaled some...

    A New York City art gallery owner says he was viciously beaten in Manhattan by a large group of teens for wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat. Jahangir "John" Turan, 42, says it happened Tuesday evening on Canal Street. He was wearing the MAGA hat that he had purchased earlier in the day at Trump Tower. "I love President Trump. I think he's doing a great job," Turan said. He says the group of about 15 "kids" yelled "F*** Trump" and stomped on him. One of them smashed his head into a scaffold. Turan says he suffered a fracture...

    New York City Major Bill de Blasio (D) seems to think he can decide who can and cannot live in his city. In fact, during a BuzzFeed News event on Thursday night, de Blasio told Trump he would no longer be welcome back to the Big Apple once his presidency ends "very soon." He also challenged Trump to a debate because, as de Blasio said, Trump doesn't understand New York City or what's best for the area.“I challenge you, Donald Trump, to come to New York City, and I will debate you about what’s right for New York City. And BuzzFeed...

    New York City mayor Bill De Blasio continued his attacks on President Trump on Thursday, calling for a debate between the two and indicating that Trump's home city will not welcome him back after he leaves the White House. "When his presidency is over, really soon, he will not be welcome back in New York City!” the longshot 2020 candidate told BuzzFeed. De Blasio also argued that Trump, a Queens native who has built his real estate empire in the Big Apple, didn't "understand the city."

    Two videos showing people dousing New York police officers with water and hurling objects at them were uploaded to Twitter on July 22. In one video, two officers are making an arrest while people shower them with water. One person launches a bucket at the back at the head of one officer, hitting him.“The videos of cops being doused with water and having objects hurled at them as they made an arrest in Harlem is reprehensible,” wrote New York City Police Chief Terence Monahan on Twitter on the day of the dousing. “NYC’s cops & communities have made remarkable progress—together—but...

    Playing behind the scenes of New York City’s Saturday blackout which left 73,000 locals – not counting tourists – in Midtown Manhattan and the Upper West Side without power are the ongoing power grid “hack attacks” being exchanged between the U.S. and Russia. Maybe Russia just scored one on us. A sampling of open-source evidence confirms that Russia is fairly embedded in the U.S. grid and taking offensive measures against us. For instance, Russian hacking operatives (known alternately as Energetic Bear or Dragonfly) were caught in 2014 compromising software updates that would, in turn, provide access to power switches. A...

    Dante de Blasio is the son of Democratic New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has abandoned his crime-wracked city (but not his public office, tax-subsidized salary or perks) for a quixotic presidential bid to become America's social justice warrior-in-chief. Calculated to promote his race card-playing dad's campaign, Dante stoked anti-cop hysteria a few weeks ago with a widely disseminated USA Today op-ed. Dante's screed came just days after de Blasio declared at the first Democratic debate: "I'm different from all of the other candidates in this race in that I'm raising a black son in America." De Blasio reminds...

    Over the weekend, young toughs with buckets full of water randomly soaked cops in Harlem and Brownsville just for the hell of it. At one point, an officer got conked on the head by an empty plastic bucket — to the vast amusement of jeering onlookers. It was apparently an internet challenge sort of thing — and a horrifying sight, at least to those who understand the implications of unchallenged anarchic public behavior. But it should have surprised no one. The NYPD, under orders from City Hall, has been standing down for years now — watching fare-beaters beating fares, pot-dealers...

    Stunning videos posted online Monday show uniformed NYPD cops getting drenched with buckets of water by brazen young men in Harlem and Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told The Post. One clip even shows a soaked cop getting beaned in the back of the head with an empty, red plastic bucket while the cop and his partner were handcuffing a suspect on the hood of a black car. “Everybody’s outraged,” an NYPD source said.
