    Mayor Eric Adams has focused much of his energy on public safety, as other crises receiving less attention have deepened. Now, as his first year in office draws to a close, Adams is ready to take aim at one of the largest problems escalating across the city: An acute housing shortage that has driven up the cost of renting and buying a home. Adams plans to announce as early as Thursday a set of over 100 reforms designed to ease development by minimizing regulations, modernizing arcane rules and trimming costs for builders, according to a summary of the proposals obtained...

    SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, PA — This past June, Dr. Mehmet Oz was declared the winner of Pennsylvania’s Republican primary for US Senate by just 951 votes. Even so, he was not in a good position. And things were about to get a whole lot worse. His bitter primary contest against businessman David McCormick had left him battered. His Democratic opponent, Pennsylvania’s Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, had gone on the attack — portraying Oz as an elite carpetbagger from New Jersey. Polls showed Oz had slid into a double-digit deficit in the race. The money had dried up, and establishment Republicans were...

    The federal probe into New York Gov. Cuomo’s office allegedly fudging the numbers on nursing homes in the state during the coronavirus pandemic combined with multiple sexual harassment charges reportedly stand at about $2.5 million currently. And, it’s a cost that could be paid for by taxpayers. This is a possibility is according to an Associated Press story on Tuesday. “Taxpayers are set to foot the bill for a $2.5 million contract for lawyers representing Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office in an ongoing federal investigation over his administration’s handling of COVID-19 data in nursing homes, the governor said Wednesday,” the Associated...
  • Andrew Cuomo’s shameless $5.12M payday profiting from the pandemic(Lied about Charitable Donations)

    ---SNIP--- The gov vowed to donate a “significant portion” of his windfall to charity, yet he gave away just $500,000, to the United Way of New York State — a tenth of his total pre-tax proceeds. And he took a tax break for the gift, deducting $300,000 of it this year and $200,000 to show up next year. Cuomo should give all the money to charity. He profited off a pandemic made worse by his own policies — and covered up his malfeasance as he wrote the book, keeping his reputation intact long enough to ensure a big payday.

    Facebook and Twitter's frantic attempts to stop the spread of the New York Post's Hunter Biden story didn't prevent the article from becoming the top story about the election on those platforms last week, according to data from NewsWhip. Why it matters: The data shows that even swift, aggressive content suppression may not be swift or aggressive enough to keep down a story with as much White House backing and partisan fuel as this one. By the numbers: The Post's story generated 2.59m interactions (likes, comments, shares) on Facebook and Twitter last week — more than double the next biggest...

    We’ve got to support candidates who are running against the super vermin like Nadler. Cathy Bernstein is running against Nadler in the 10th District of NYC. I live in Florida and after watching the young lady describe the 10th District I am sending her a financial contribution. Her description of the New York 10th district is devastating. You should watch her 2 minute video and see for yourself.

During the keynote, Vice President for Equity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer Kijua Sanders-McMurtry interviewed Hannah-Jones. "I don’t think we’re an exceptional nation. I think that’s ludicrous for any nation to make that claim, and we certainly cannot make that claim."

    The New York Times this week published a lengthy sympathetic story about three men the paper suggested were guilty of the victimless crime of trying to have sex with underage girls. One of the men was Jace Hambrick, who the Times describes as a nerdy gamer who “wasn’t someone who could meet women at a bar.” So he gave Craigslist a try. There, he met girl who said she was 13, although the Times defends Hambrick by saying he thought she was older than she claimed. “Jus gamer gurl sittin’ home on sunny day,” the girl’s ad read. “we can...

    Actress Rose McGowan has come out as one of the rare prominent members of the #MeToo movement who is backing Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegations against presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. Reade’s claims Reade is a former Senate legislative aide to Biden who claims that in 1993, the then-Delaware senator sexually assaulted her by pushing her “up against the wall,” and going “down my skirt and then up inside it and he penetrated me with his fingers.” Though several family members, former colleagues, and neighbors have corroborated key details in Reade’s story, her credibility has been questioned by the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 7/15/2020 | Paul Bedard
    Virginia’s conservative Liberty University today filed a $10 million defamation suit against the embattled New York Times for a “made up” and damaging story that falsely charged that students returning from spring break became infected with the coronavirus because the school stayed open. In a 100-page suit, with exhibits, filed in Virginia’s Lynchburg Circuit Court, the 49-year-old school also charged that New York Times reporter Elizabeth Williamson and photographer Julia Rendleman ignored “No Trespassing” signs to tour the campus at a time when the school was trying to keep outsiders, who could potentially be infected with COVID-19, away. The long-threatened...

    After finding 40 churches connected to around 650 cases of the coronavirus, The New York Times is calling Sunday worship services “a major source” of COVID-19 cases. “The virus has infiltrated Sunday sermons, meetings of ministers and Christian youth camps in Colorado and Missouri,” reads the Times piece. “It has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.” The story does, of course, link to legitimate cases — like Calvary Chapel in San Antonio, where around 50...

    New York City's famous George Washington Monument in Washington Square Park was defaced with red paint on Monday as protesters gathered further downtown outside City Hall ahead of a controversial vote that could slash the city's police budget by $1billion - 16 percent of its total - despite escalating crime and chaos. In the latest symbol of police defiance and unruliness across the city, the vandals tossed red paint at the famous George Washington monument on Monday then fled the scene, leaving city workers to try to power wash it off. President Trump tweeted on Tuesday: 'We are tracking down...

    Martin Gugino, 75, was shoved while approaching riot police in Buffalo causing him to stumble backwards and hit his head, resulting in a melt-down of intense fury on social media. Far from being an innocent old man as being portrayed by some, it turns out that Gugino is a longtime hard left agitator. At the time of this writing, it appears that Guginos Facebook and Twitter accounts have been deleted. The accounts, which were researched by RAIR Foundation USA, revealed a seasoned leftist activist who had a self-described “obsession” with Cuba. Gugino has ties to radical socialist Catholic Worker Movement,...

    Ilhan Omar has a year full of scandals. The Democrats always protected her along with their puppy the mainstream media. Last year, a report claimed that Ilhan Omar and Ahmed Hirsi filed joint tax returns in at least 2014-2015. Yet Ilhan Omar was legally married to another man from 2009-2017. A sitting congresswoman may have filed EIGHT YEARS of fraudulent, felonious, tax returns. The Democrats denied the alleged indiscretions, though the complaints were still unconfirmed to the public at the time. Her short political career is constantly shaken with scandals. Today another scandal broke out. Ilhan Omar asked for donations...

A hospital that admits a likely coronavirus patient can get up to $13,000 in aid and three times as much if that patient is placed on a ventilator, according to Minnesota state senator and physician Scott Jensen.

    For nearly three weeks after it emerged, Tara Reade’s sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden was nowhere to be found in the mainstream media, in stark contrast to how they treated the accusations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh. No questions for Biden: Since Reade came forward, Biden has appeared in 10 interviews on different networks, including NBC, CNN, and MSNBC. Hosts have asked him a total of 81 questions, but none about the sexual allegations against him, the Washington Free Beacon reports. Then, this weekend, both the New York Times and the Washington Post reported on the story, roughly 19 days...
