    Mayor de Blasio released his new, bigger-than-ever city budget this week pretending that federal aid would make up for City Hall’s losses thanks to the pandemic. And, worse than that delusion, he still hasn’t faced up to how his policies had New York shrinking long before the pandemic even began. That’s right: The mass exodus from the city dates to at least 2018; the flight since then is just adding to New York’s woes. The Health Department’s 2018 Vital Statistics report on health outcomes showed that the Big Apple’s population dropped by 223,950 residents, or 2.6 percent, between 2017 and...

    New York prosecutors conducted an hours-long interview of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, about his old employer's finances. The interview with the 54-year-old, took place on Thursday, sources told Associated Press (AP). It focused in part on Trump’s relationship with Deutsche Bank, his biggest and longest standing creditor. The interview, at least the second of Cohen by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, comes amid a long-running grand jury investigation into Trump’s business dealings.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still won't say if she plans to launch a bid against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer when he runs for reelection as New York senator in 2022 – claiming she is 'indecisive' and still trying to figure out her role within the Democratic Party and Washington politics. 'I'm a no bulls**t kind of person,' Ocasio-Cortez told Punchbowl News in a Q&A published Monday morning. 'I'm not playing coy or anything like that,' she said in reference to dodging questions on potentially primarying Schumer, a three-term senator who served as a U.S. representative from New York for 18 years...

    As states around the country are working to distribute and administer doses of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, some governors are handling the responsibility better than others. While states such as West Virginia, North Dakota, and South Dakota top the charts for administering vaccines, ranking above a rate of 2,700 vaccinations per 100,000 people, other states such as California and New York are dragging their feet on implementation...

    A New York state lawmaker has introduced a bill that would allow the government to detain people that they deemed to be a potential public health risk. While the law does not specifically mention coronavirus, it comes amid increasing concerns that the Covid-19 crisis could be used to usher in authoritarianism. RT reports: Authored by a Democratic member of the New York State Assembly N. Nick Perry, Bill A416 calls for the “removal and/or detention” of individuals who are identified as a “case, contact or carrier” of a contagious disease. Such person or group of persons shall be detained in...

    As the second wave of coronavirus sweeps New York, the state's governor has threatened legal action not only against a Brooklyn-based network of medical clinics that allegedly distributed the Moderna coronavirus vaccine out of sequence with state guidelines but those who received the first shot before their eligibility. "We will not tolerate any fraud in the vaccination process. Anyone who engages in fraud is going to be held accountable," Cuomo said at a news conference Monday. "We want to send a clear signal to the providers that if you violate the law on these vaccinations, we will find out and...

    Federal Appeals Court Blocks Governor Cuomo's Restrictions on Size of Religious GatheringsALBANY, N.Y. — Handing an important religious freedom victory to houses of worship in New York, the state's Second Circuit ordered that the 10 and 25-person caps to worship had to be suspended while the case is pending.According to the Becket Fund, who represented a group of Synagogues and rabbis as well as the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn, the court's decision “effectively means that New York cannot enforce its caps against any house of worship.”“And since Connecticut is also in the Second Circuit, it means that Connecticut’s similar...

    James Hunter pulled the trigger. But he had help. The pandering politicians, the woke eastsiders, the fawning reporters on the 6 o’clock news, the people who shouted into the bullhorns, the academics who consecrated a movement, the profane haters outside the Public Safety Building, the corporate titans and their leftist revolution, the people who spraypainted hashtags across a city, the pro-criminal policies of a morally bankrupt state, the blind leaders of the blind in pulpits and press conferences, the millionaire athletes in various leagues. They all helped pull the trigger.

    The father of a woman whose body was found in a Staten Island park last year has been extradited from the Middle East and charged with her murder. Suspect Kabary Salem had been indicted in the murder of his daughter, Ola Salem, 25, by a Staten Island grand jury Nov. 5, law enforcement sources told The Post.

Salem had fled the U.S. immediately after his daughter’s body was discovered in October 2019 by a jogger in Bloomingdale Park...

    New York’s golden geese are flying south, and not just for the winter. The analytics firm Unacast reports that more than 3 million have fled the city during the pandemic — replaced by slightly fewer who earn a lot less, for a net reduction in income of some $34 billion. Its estimates, based on cellphone data, may be off a bit, but signs that higher earners have left town are everywhere. And top businesses are eyeing the exits, too. Deutsche Bank AG is the most recent in a long line of major companies looking to escape the tax-heavy, high-cost city...

    At least 4,500 restaurants in New York City have permanently closed their doors in the wake of COVID-19 lockdowns. Thanks to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s latest dictate, that number looks sure to surge. Amid rising COVID-19 cases, the Democrat ordered an end to all indoor dining in New York City starting on Monday. NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has fully supported this mandate. Cuomo’s decision to follow through on his threat to shut down restaurants has received enormous backlash, in part because its very basis is undercut by the governor’s own data. Restaurants and bars have driven only 1.4% of New...

Regardless of the veto or its potential to be overridden, the [election] commissioner, Jackie Ortiz, said Thursday she would refuse to abide by the amendment affecting the board. ...

The amendment would restore those positions. The members of the caucus — legislators Ernest Flagler-Mitchell, Sabrina LeMar, Frank Keophetlasy, and Calvin Lee,...

    With the Metropolitan Transportation Authority facing a budget crisis, New Yorkers may have to dig into their pockets to help out. Under a new proposed bill, New York City residents would be required to pay a $3 surcharge on packages they ordered online, with the exception for medicine and food. Assemblyman Robert Carroll, who proposed the bill, says the online shopping fee would raise more than $1 billion a year "to fund the operating costs of buses and subways in the city of New York."

    (CNN) -- When a New York couple was told their over 100-year-old home was built by a notorious bootlegger, they passed it off as small town legend. But during a recent home renovation, the couple discovered something that revealed the legend could be true. In early October, Nick Drummond and Patrick Bakker said they found more than 66 bottles of whiskey from the Prohibition-era hidden within the walls and floorboards of their home, which was built in 1915. "Our walls are filled with bundles of booze!" Drummond, who documented the unexpected find in a series of posts on social media,...

    In July of this year, Natural News reported how California Gov. Gavin Newsom was caught wiring half a billion dollars to communist China as part of a “massive face mask money laundering scheme.” Back in April, even the mainstream media was questioning what Newsom was up to when it was revealed that he had wired half a billion dollars to an electric car company in China to supposedly purchase “N-95 masks” for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). This decision was never voted on or approved by legislators, and when pressed about the details of the deal, Newsom refused to disclose them....
