    We’ve seen the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has had a lot of questionable things regarding its case against former President Donald Trump involving alleged hush money payments to Stormy Daniels.First, Democrat Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg didn’t pursue the matter when he came into office. He had prosecutors quit over it, but he didn’t want to pursue any action against Trump. The feds also didn’t think there was anything they should be pursuing. But then Bragg — for some reason, let’s guess why — flipped and indicted Trump a few months after he declared he was running for president in 2024.However,...
  • Donald Trump Finally Shares How He Feels About the Debt Ceiling Deal

    The deal to raise the debt ceiling for two years to the tune of $4 trillion while minimally cutting spending passed the House, thanks to the Democratic Party support. More Democrats voted for the compromise than Republicans did, which we all saw coming, given the vocal opposition from the party's conservative wing. Even more damning were the allegations that the $4 trillion increase wasn’t a Democratic Party pitch but Speaker Kevin McCarthy's (R-CA) proposal. Yet, even on the Republican side of the aisle, you had staunch conservatives disagreeing. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), one of the most prominent spending hawks, voiced...
  • Competitive admissions to New York's top high schools results in an achievement gap

    There has been an ongoing battle in New York City over whether or not to use standardized testing and competitive admissions to identity top students. Those who are in favor of competitive admissions and standardized testing say it grants slots at the best schools to the most prepared and hardest working students. At present, those students tend to be disproportionately Asian. Those who oppose the testing for admissions, including the previous mayor Bill de Blasio, want to see a greater percentage of black and Hispanic students get access to top schools. Their goal is to “desegregate the system” and they’ve...

    The silence is deafening as the vast majority of CUNY Board of Trustees refused to weigh in Wednesday as outrage over a law school graduate’s now notorious “hate-filled” commencement speech continues to mount — and the school’s dean faces calls to be fired. Just five of CUNY’s 17 board members have publicly denounced law school graduate Fatima Mousa Mohammed’s May 12 commencement speech calling for a “revolution” to take on the legal system’s “white supremacy.” She also blasted the NYPD as “fascist” and accused Israel of indiscriminately murdering Palestinians, sparking widespread condemnation and calls for the public university to be...

    “We’re just down to the technical changes that we’re having conversations about. So we don’t have the final version yet but it is something conceptually I do support,” Gov. Kathy Hochul told reporters in New York City on Wednesday. People convicted of sex crimes are explicitly ineligible, according to the legislative language, which has no effect on media reports concerning past crimes. The proposal would allow certain employers like law enforcement agencies, courts, prosecutors, schools, and even Uber to access sealed records. The DMV and government officials could also view rap sheets when people respectively apply for driving-related jobs and...

    A 65-year-old man fatally shot an apparent armed robber, 32, in Queens early Wednesday, authorities said. The younger man displayed an “unknown object” as he approached the older pedestrian around 2 a.m. on 82nd Avenue near Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens, in what investigators believe may have been a robbery attempt, cops said. The 65-year-old then pulled out a gun and shot the other man multiple times in the chest, police said. The gravely wounded man was pronounced dead at the scene by responding EMS workers, cops said. His name was not immediately released, pending family notification. The gunman was...

    New York Democrat Rep. Jamaal Bowman recently said, “We need to stop drilling for fossil fuels completely.”I can think of two possible reasons why he said this.One is that he doesn’t know that the fertilizer that we use to grow our food is made from fossil fuels.The other is that he does know it, but he believes that his voters don’t know it.Either one is a pretty scary prospect.Here’s video of him saying those words on CNN:

    In order to persuade suburbs to take on a bigger share of the flood of illegal migrants in New York, Gov Kathy Hochul (D) characterized the invaders as "hopeful immigrants seeking work." Unfortunately, the 5,000 immigrants being housed in the Row New York City Hotel show no sign of being interested in work of any kind. Site Administrator Carlos Arrellano said that "when the immigrants arrive they are given rooms that previously rented for $500 a night, free benefits, like Uber services, healthcare, car seats and cribs for children, laundry services, housekeeping, metro cards for the subway, and three meals...

    Daily Signal ^ | May 26, 2023 | Fred Lucas
    Inmate voting, noncitizen voting, and even mandatory voting have been among the initiatives pushed in Democrat-led jurisdictions this year to expand their voting base. “The Left wants to normalize voter classes that nobody took seriously a generation ago—criminals, foreigners—to help them win elections,” J. Christian Adams, president of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, an election integrity group, told The Daily Signal. As I noted in my book “The Myth of Voter Suppression,” Democrats long have sought to change election laws to gain a political advantage. The nation’s capital, the District of Columbia, adopted noncitizen voting this year for local elections...

    If the pandemic brought us too close for comfort to one of life’s certainties — death, that is — then it also got many Americans thinking about the other one: taxes. Or at least it seems that way considering how many Americans chose to move, and in doing so picked states that offer less of a wallop on the wallet taxwise. Two of the most populated and highest taxing states in the country — California and New York — lost about $92 billion in income over two years as a result of the recent exodus. Here’s what’s driving this great...

    NYC Mayor Eric Adams has slammed a CUNY law graduate for her 'negativity and divisiveness' after she incited anger and slammed 'fascist' cops and military in the US. Yemeni immigrant Fatima Mousa Mohammed gave the graduation speech at City University of New York's law school on May 12 - but unearthed footage has also shown her previously demanding Zionist professors be banned from the college. The controversial clip from the law graduation ceremony inflamed social media - including lawmakers and NYC's mayor, who today bashed her 'words of negativity and divisiveness.'

    Mayor Adams denounced left-wing ideologies in an ultra-patriotic Monday speech in which he also lamented a perceived lack of national pride among young Americans. Speaking at the USS Intrepid Museum’s annual Memorial Day ceremony, the mayor made the critical comments after referencing a Thomas Jefferson quote about the “tree of liberty,” which is commonly interpreted as being about military struggle. “You water the tree of freedom with your blood,” Adams said. “We sit under the shade of that tree of freedom protected from the hot rays of socialism and communism and destruction that’s playing out across the globe.” It was...

    A graduate speaking at the City University of New York’s law school commencement called for a “revolution” to challenge oppressive institutions in the US — name-checking the “fascist” NYPD, the military, Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the prison system. Future lawyer Fatima Mousa Mohammed, a Queens native who was selected by the graduating 2023 class to speak during the May 12 ceremony, praised CUNY for supporting student activism — but said the school still managed to fail students by supporting the NYPD.

    Gov. Kathy Hochul’s administration took steps in several recent disputes involving lucrative upstate gambling rights that were in line with the interests of Delaware North, where hubby Bill Hochul works, a new report says. Just last month, the governor agreed to a last-minute tweak to the state budget to restructure the public-private board overseeing western New York’s Batavia Downs hotel and casino, a competitor of the multibillion-dollar firm where Bill Hochul is senior counsel, the New York Times said. While Delaware North says it is no longer interested in acquiring Batavia, the restructuring could presumably make such a move easier,...

    Mayor Eric Adams is seeking a suspension of the city’s “right to shelter” regulation as it struggles to provide housing, food and legal services to over 40,000 migrants with limited federal assistance. The New York City Law Department submitted an application on Tuesday night requesting that the Big Apple’s decades-old “right to shelter” regulation is modified, explaining that the surge of migrants has placed “unprecedented demands” on the city’s resources. “Given that we’re unable to provide care for an unlimited number of people and are already overextended, it is in the best interest of everyone, including those seeking to come...
