    A violent suspect who was arrested trying to shut down a pro-Daniel Penny rally in Manhattan was out on bond for a leftist domestic terrorism case in Atlanta. Teresa Yue Shen, 31, of Brooklyn, was one of several far-left militants charged with domestic terrorism in January in Atlanta, following a deadly shooting incident at an Antifa-linked autonomous zone occupation at the heart of the “Stop Cop City” movement. Shen’s $20,000 bond was fronted by far-left activist Daniel Hanley. The Atlanta Solidarity Fund, a project of 501(c)(3) nonprofit Network For Strong Communities, has been raising cash for Antifa and domestic terrorism...

    A federal jury on Friday convicted pro-Trump troll Douglass Mackey of plotting to trick voters out of casting a ballot during the 2016 presidential election. The case, which sought to address if any of the toxic stew of Internet disinformation during the 2016 election rose to the level of a crime, has been closely watched by both anti-extremist groups and right-wing politicians and pundits. Mackey, 33, of West Palm Beach, Fla., who gained fame on the Internet as the Twitter user “Ricky Vaughn,” posted two images made to look like fake Hillary Clinton ads telling people they could vote by...

    Joe Pepitone, the former Yankee known as much for his outlandish personality as his baseball career, died on Monday at 82, the team announced. “The Yankees are deeply saddened by the passing of former Yankee Joe Pepitone, whose playful and charismatic personality and on-field contributions made him a favorite of generations of Yankees fans even beyond his years with the team in the 1960s,” the team said in a statement. Pepitone, a Brooklyn native who was shot by a classmate in 1957, signed with the Yankees a year later and made his MLB debut with the organization in 1962.

This is the fifth Humanitarian Emergency Response and Relief Center opened in...

    Gov. Kathy Hochul has signed legislation into law that replaces the word “alien” in state statutes with the politically correct term “noncitizen,” which was proposed by Democratic lawmakers. “New York will both match the language anticipated to be in federal codes and demonstrate respect and humanity to its immigrant population,” reads a legislative memo attached to the bill. Legislative language states that changes to laws covering cannabis, parks, public health, labor, public authorities, real estate, economic development and a litany of other topics will take effect immediately. This includes nixing “illegal alien” in favor of “undocumented noncitizen.” The legislation, sponsored...

    Hakeem Jeffries seems poised to replace Nancy Pelosi as leader of the House Democrats. A Black political moderate, the Brooklyn congressman is often likened to Barack Obama. Even-tempered, he is known to “play” with most of the children in Washington. And at 52, he represents generational change from the 82-year-old Pelosi. Who among Democrats would have a problem with him? Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would have a problem. She also has problems with President Joe Biden and, frankly, the mainstream Democratic Party off which she feeds. A preening socialist princess, she has done much to entertain Fox News and cost the...

    They’re becoming an endangered species — moderate Democrats in New York. Republican candidates rolled over veteran left-center Democratic legislators like bowling pins in Tuesday’s downstate races. They were virtually annihilated in southern Brooklyn. GOP candidate Lester Chang — who ran against bail reform and championed merit-based education and school choice — toppled 36-year veteran Assemblyman Peter Abbate in the 49th District Bensonhurst/Borough Park/Sunset Park. “I went door to door and asked voters, ‘Are you better off than you were two years ago?'” Chang said.

    Former NBA player turned activist Enes Freedom has called out Brooklyn Nets owner Joe Tsai for allegedly supporting the Uyghur genocide in China. Freedom called Tsai a hypocrite after he called out his star guard Kyrie Irving for helping promote an antisemitic film on social media.

However, he also called Tsai a hypocrite because of his support for China's alleged human rights violations against the Uyghur people. "I applaud you for condemning Kyrie Irving after multiple antisemitic incidents," Freedom wrote. "It's time...

    Tom Barrack, Trump's longtime billionaire friend and 2016 fundraiser, has been acquitted on all charges related to accusations he lobbied Trump on behalf of the United Arab Emirates without registering as a foreign agent.

Prosecutors alleged Barrack had traded on his decades-long friendship with the then-president to give UAE officials access to and insider information on the Trump White House and 2016 campaign. Acting as a foreign agent without registering...

That’s as long as Simpson — an alleged member of the violent street gang “Focus On Paper” — writes a letter expressing remorse, according to the sources....
