    The man charged with trying to shove an Asian undercover cop onto Queens subway tracks was cut loose without bail Sunday — as the judge claimed, “My hands are tied.” Suspect Ricardo Hernandez, 32 — who faces three hate-crime charges in the attack on the unnamed cop on a Long Island City train platform around 5:30 p.m. Saturday — has at least 12 prior arrests under his belt. At Hernandez’s arraignment over the attempted push onto the tracks, Queens Supreme Court Justice Louis Nock said the state’s bail-reform measures barred him from holding Hernandez in jail.“My hands are tied because...

    The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment. “Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later,” the tweet read. SNIP It also spurred a joke-fest with people tweeting alternatives to mistress, like “side piece” or “homewrecker.”

    The NYPD pulled over Christopher Stoney at West 16th Street because of the air rifle atop his Hummer. A rapper and fashion mogul out of Philly found out the streets of New York are no place for a Hummer with a roof-mounted long gun — even if it’s just an air rifle that shoots promo T-shirts. ...the vehicle’s massive, four-foot-long air rifle somehow caught the eye of cops “I’m sorry to say but the NYPD is about to confiscate my cannon off my truck. This s–t is crazy right now, man. They’re taking it,” he said in the clip.

    Dad who wrote scathing letter to Brearley about race focus: ‘Someone had to’ A father fed up with an elite Manhattan prep school’s heavy-handed focus on race won’t re-enroll his daughter in the fall, accusing the school of trying to “brainwash” kids with woke philosophies rather than teaching them how to think on their own. In a scathing 1,700-word letter Andrew Gutmann mailed to 650 families — a screed since gone viral — he blasted the posh, all-girls Brearley School’s “cowardly and appalling lack of leadership [for] appeasing an anti-intellectual, illiberal mob.” The April 13 missive — published this week...

    Looks like there is selective outrage when it comes to questioning vaccine decisions.The press have been on a curious trend lately of sowing confusion and delivering conflicting information on the Covid-19 vaccines. CBS News gave false claims about some of the vaccines, YouTube was blocking videos from prominent doctors due to claimed misinformation, and Dr. Anthony Fauci is walking around delivering conflicting information on a regular basis. This can be dangerous content, and it derives from the media.But they blame Tucker Carlson. He has been the unique focus of the media for months now, and they are ramping up the...
  • 'We are now a lawless city': New Yorkers left on edge as random ‘sucker-punch’ assaults known as the 'knock out game' increase

    A series of attacks on random strangers is putting New Yorkers on edge. Although assaults were commonplace in the 1980s, a crackdown on the crooks saw crime levels drop making neighborhoods that were previously known as no-go areas, safe to walk around, even at night. But now, there are fears the city is returning to the bad old days.

    New York City's EMTs and paramedics are being 'targeted' by anarchists who are smashing ambulance windows, a union leader has said - as he blasted the FDNY for leaving crews to fend for themselves. Bricks were hurled through the windows of four FDNY vehicles and 'FTP,' which stands for 'F**K the police,' was painted on the sides of two ambulances in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, according to Oren Barzilay, president of the Local 2507. There's been at least one of these types of attacks every month since January, all within blocks of each other, said Barzilay, who heads the...

Yet the gap between administration policies or even the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and the scientific facts about how the virus is spread is considerable.Given that we’ve known since last summer that younger...

    Back in the good old days, when things were more innocent and simple, the psychopathic Central Intelligence Agency had to covertly infiltrate the news media to manipulate the information Americans were consuming about their nation and the world. Nowadays, there is no meaningful separation between the news media and the CIA at all. Journalist Glenn Greenwald just highlighted an interesting point about the reporting by The New York Times on the so-called “Bountygate” story the outlet broke in June of last year about the Russian government trying to pay Taliban-linked fighters to attack US soldiers in Afghanistan. “One of the...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — At least five mom-and-pop pharmacies have been broken into across the city. Police say tens of thousands of dollars worth of drugs have been stolen. As CBS2’s Kevin Rincon reported Friday, it’s not the work of a lone burglar. The front window is being replaced at the Strand Pharmacy in Astoria, Queens after police say at least two men broke in and stole an estimated $10,000 worth of prescription pills, along with $2,000 in cash. It happened on April 13.

On Wednesday, New York State governor Andrew Cuomo walked back that assertion, contradicting his fellow Democrat and scolding him.

    ...John Swanson, 81, of Genesee County, New York, like so many elderly Americans, was given no legitimate preventive or early treatment options for this now very predictable inflammatory response to COVID-19. He wound up on a ventilator at the United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia and, according to the court affidavit, was "on death's doorstep." The Buffalo News reports that, according to attorney Ralph C. Lorigo, Swanson was given one dose of ivermectin and began breathing on his own, was then taken off the ventilator, and began to show great progress. However, the hospital, with no other legitimate treatment options...

The ugly incident occurred Monday afternoon on the Upper East Side, with the assailant allegedly targeting the man at random before body slamming him into the glass window of a store.

    The New York Times has finally confirmed what many political observers had been saying all along about the Capitol riots: It was pre-planned, the Capitol Police knew it was coming, and authorities effectively gave a ‘stand down’ order. A new 104-page report dropped by an internal investigator shreds authorities for intentionally hampering the police response on what has subsequently been claimed was a “coup,” an “insurrection,” and an attempt to “overturn” the results of the 2020 election. The Inspector General of the Capitol Police laid bare all of the disturbing issues involved with the way the January 6th Electoral College...

But it’s important to remember that there’s so much more to him than that. Like anti-Semitism, for example:

    Reform of the police is no longer enough, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said on Tuesday, as she joined fellow 'squad' member Rashida Tlaib in calling for the police to be abolished. The New York congresswoman responded on Tuesday to the killing of another black man, Daunte Wright, 20, in a Minneapolis suburb on Sunday. He was killed by a white policewoman, Kimberly Potter, who shot him in the chest at a traffic stop in what Brooklyn Center police chief said was an accident, when she meant to reach for her Taser. 'Daunte Wright's killing was not a random, disconnected 'accident' - it...

    A new book, based on interviews with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claims she mocked rising liberal star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and was furious at The Squad. Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi and the Lessons of Power, written by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page, features ten interviews with Pelosi as well as interviews with over 150 friends, family members, and politicians. Page recalled a July 2019 interview with the Speaker, according a preview of the book in Axios, where she said: 'Pelosi unloads on the Squad, at one point adopting a child-like voice when discussing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.'

    I recently wrote about the mysterious killings of endangered white rhinos in South Africa’s Pilanesberg Park years ago. The killers turned out to be gangs of aggressive teen elephants who, raised without fathers or role models to “curb their youthful exuberance,” grew up to be troublemakers. The delinquents fell in line after park staff relocated adult male elephants to the park who “kicked butt” with the compassion of a father and established a new hierarchy. The violence and killings of white rhinos stopped. I compared the young elephants to young blacks in urban cities who were raised without fathers or...
