  • On This Day in NYC History, December 3: Jonas Bronck Bought the Bronx in 1641 [I couldn't wait, and it's from 2013]

    Untapped New York ^ | December 3, 2013 | Samantha Sokol
    According to the Bronx Historical Society, the first settlement is in modern day "Mott Haven" by East 138th street. The area was initially a part of Westchester county. The annex onto NYC was spurred by regular railroad service between the Bronx and Manhattan that started in 1841. Jonas Bronck's original purchase was all farmland, and the area stayed that way until it became a part of New York City in 1895. People would always say they were "going to the Broncks'," so the name stuck.For more on the Bronck family, check out Artzar's interview with a Bronck's descendant, writer William...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's supportive organizations are working to convince Democrats in New Hampshire to switch parties and back the prominent critic of former President Donald Trump in the Republican primary. New Hampshire is the second contest in the GOP's nominating process and the Granite State typically ranks high among candidate priorities due to the prospect of an early win to build momentum. Though Christie trails many of his Republican rivals most polls, the Tell It Like It Is super PAC and American Leadership Today (ALT) hope to boost their preferred candidate by encouraging Democratic defections prior to...

    Now-former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy was stripped of his gavel on Tuesday afternoon via roll-call vote on Rep. Matt Gaetz's (R-FL) motion to vacate the chair, pursuant to rules agreed to by McCarthy in order to clinch victory in his drawn-out race to become speaker in January.By a vote of 216 to 210, the historic motion prevailed as presiding Rep.

  • ‘That is disgraceful’: Trump goes after fraud suit judge’s law clerk on Truth Social mid-trial and calls her ‘Schumer’s girlfriend’

    Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday decided to send a Truth Social post during his New York fraud civil trial attacking Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron’s principal law clerk as Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D) “girlfriend,” sharing an image of Ashley Greenfield and Schumer smiling in a photograph and linking to her Instagram profile. “Schumer’s girlfriend, Alison [sic] R. Greenfield, is running this case against me. How disgraceful! This case should be dismissed immediately,” the post said. While the move is to legal observers likely to spark more gag order talk, as Trump’s social media postings have in his Jan....

    Word on Fire Ministry ^ | 10.03.23 | Bishop Robert Barron
    Luke 9:51-56 Friends, in today’s Gospel, Jesus rebukes James and John for their desire for vengeance. We are walking with Jesus and his disciples as they make their way to Jerusalem. As they pass through Samaria, they are refused hospitality, for their destination is Jerusalem and this annoys the Samaritans. Bothersome? Stupid? Racist? Sure, all of those things. As a result, James and John (the sons of thunder) cry out: “Lord, do you want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?”Can you hear echoes of this cry up and down the ages? Whenever people have been unjustly...

  • What happens if Gaetz wins -- and McCarthy loses?

    The House would be in uncharted waters if McCarthy is removed as speaker: A motion to vacate has never been used successfully. But the chamber wouldn't be as paralyzed and chaotic as it was in January amid McCarthy's five-day, 15-ballot vote to win the gavel. As part of a rule change after 9/11 to support the continuity of government, the speaker is required to deliver to the House clerk an ordered list of members who can act as speaker pro tempore in the event of a vacancy. The person at the top of McCarthy's list will serve as interim speaker...

    Minneapolis’ progressive district attorney is under fire for her woke policies that allow accused rapists, pedophiles and killers to stay free — with even Minnesota’s George Soros-backed general attorney accusing her of taking it too far. Hennepin County District Attorney Mary Moriarty, 59, took office in January promising to “deliver more safety and more justice” to the community. Since then, however, she has horrified local families and officials by pushing for suspects in even the most serious crimes to get probation in an effort to keep them out of prison, according to the Star Tribune. Veteran prosecutor Catherine Markey was...

    Aaron Rodgers is now the one doling out the shots. The injured Jets quarterback, in attendance at MetLife Stadium on Sunday night to watch the Jets host the Chiefs, poked fun at Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce, the star of recent ads for Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine. The star pass catcher and rumored boyfriend of Taylor Swift was held to just six receptions and 60 yards on the night as the Jets limited his effectiveness, in Rodgers’ eyes. “Mr. Pfizer, we kinda shut him down a little bit,” Rodgers said Tuesday on the “Pat McAfee Show.” He didn’t have his...

    For decades before his presidency, Donald Trump had long been synonymous with the real estate industry — as well as his namesake New York properties, which have been the subject of great discussion since last week. That’s when a New York judge, Arthur F. Engoron of the state Supreme Court, concluded in a 35-page judgment that Trump had exaggerated the value of his holdings to secure favorable loan and insurance terms with financial institutions, with some properties being inflated by an estimated 1,000%. Judge Engoron’s decision was issued as part of New York Attorney General Letitia James’s $250 million civil...

    He got played — or so he says. A distinguished US Army veteran wants Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to knock time off his 62-year sentence for killing his high school sweetheart’s husband in 2020 — claiming she lied to him about being the victim of violent domestic abuse. Darrin Lopez, 51, who was convicted in July of gunning down 49-year-old Jamie Faith, said he saw himself on a “mission” — much like when he was in the military — to save Jennifer Faith’s life only to find out afterward she’d tricked him, NBC’s “Dateline” reported Friday. “I became her weapon....

    The Biden administration finalized a new regulation taking aim at certain pool pump motors and their energy efficiency levels. The Department of Energy (DOE) published the new rule in the Federal Register on Sept. 28 establishing higher energy conservation and efficiency standards for pool pump motors that manufacturers will have to comply with starting in September 2025. Pool pump motors are the latest appliance to find themselves in the administration’s regulatory crosshairs, as the DOE has already pursued updates to energy efficiency standards for products like water heaters and portable gas generators. The pool pump motors rule could cost consumers...

Jamaal Bowman, D-N.Y., ought to be labeled an insurrectionist after he pulled a fire alarm Saturday morning, shortly before the House was scheduled to vote on a government funding bill. Speaking with "Carl Higbie FRONTLINE," Elder says, "Of course, he won't be held accountable. They'll figure out some excuse. Yeah, he ought to be prosecuted and called an insurrectionist the way they've done [former President] Donald Trump."
