    President Trump’s daughter-in-law, and newly minted Fox News contributor, Lara Trump says liberals are hypocrites when it comes to their concerns or lack thereof about the current humanitarian and law enforcement crisis at the southern U.S. border prompted by a massive surge of illegal migrants, including minors, that has overwhelmed facilities and resources there. Lara Trump particularly called out a currently far less vocal U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) who famously had a picture-taking session outside a detention center when she expressed her fury over the faux kids-in-cages controversy during President Trump’s administration. “It’s total hypocrisy,” Lara Trump said on...

    One of Governor Andrew Cuomo's accusers claims he 'made her memorize the words to the song Danny Boy' and wanted her to sing it to top aides in a bizarre 'hazing' incident. The lawyer for Charlotte Bennett, who was Cuomo's second accuser, came forward with the new allegation to WLNY. In February, Bennett had alleged that Cuomo asked her about her sex life and complained to her about being lonely. Debra Katz, Bennett's lawyer, told the outlet that Cuomo asked Bennett, 25, to learn the lyrics and asked her to sing it for his senior staff including Melissa DeRosa -...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - A lawyer for one of several women accusing Gov. Andrew Cuomo of sexual harassment is again pushing back on the administration’s internal probe, warning Attorney General Letitia James’ office of “interference.” In a letter sent Monday to James’ office, attorney Debra Katz, who is representing former Cuomo aide Charlotte Bennett, outlined her concerns about reports that the Executive Chamber is providing “in-house attorneys” to staff members before they are questioned by James’ investigators about the governor’s behavior. “It is my understanding that these attorneys are also ‘debriefing’ staffers after their interviews with investigators,” Katz wrote. “This is...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested that Governor Andrew Cuomo may ultimately answer widespread calls to resign, but only "right before" a state-led impeachment proceeding is complete. On Sunday the mayor discussed what could lie ahead for the governor, a fellow Democrat, amid mounting sexual misconduct allegations and lingering public backlash over his role in New York's nursing home COVID crisis. "I think he'll try to hold out," de Blasio told CBS News' Margaret Brennan during on Face the Nation, responding to an inquiry about whether Cuomo will in fact step down from his position as governor. "I...

    ALBANY - On a Saturday morning last June, Charlotte Bennett was unexpectedly summoned to the Capitol to "staff" Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo as he worked in his private office. It was during the height of the coronavirus pandemic, and the governor was putting in long hours. According to an attorney for Bennett, who would later level sexual harassment charges against the governor, she was greeted by Secretary to the Governor Melissa DeRosa and Stephanie Benton, the director of the governor's offices - a role in which Benton largely serves as Cuomo's gatekeeper. "They said, 'Oh, good, you're here,' and brought...

    Disillusioned staffers are abandoning embattled Gov. Cuomo, sources said. “I hear that most people aren’t even coming into work, and the offices at the Capitol are empty,” said one well-placed insider in touch with staffers in recent days. “He’ll fight and fight and fight, but the staffers I’ve talked to are ready for him to hang up the gloves. Everyone feels like there is an inevitable conclusion — I mean at some point will Biden call on him to step down? They [staffers] just want this torture to stop.” Rebellion in the ranks deepened as Cuomo on Friday defiantly refused...

Some said they were specifically directed to wear heels when...

    Today, The Two Mikes spoke with Mr. Bobby Lopez about the inroads being made into the government of Texas, the Texas Democrat and Republican parties, and the Mega Christian churches by the depraved sexual theories of Democratic activists. California, New York, and other leftist states are each seeing their own variations of a mass exodus. The authoritarian rule that has always been present since the modern Democrat Party made their intentions more public is driving people out. Many are conservatives or moderates who are simply seeking freer pastures, but there is also an exodus of leftists who simply cannot abide...

According to the account, the staff member - whose identity is being withheld by the Times-Union because she is not authorized to speak publicly - was summoned to the executive mansion on the pretext of fixing a minor issue with his cell phone,...

    New York state just issued a drastic new guideline urging emergency-services workers not to bother trying to revive anyone without a pulse when they get to a scene, amid an overload of coronavirus patients. While paramedics were previously told to spend up to 20 minutes trying to revive people found in cardiac arrest, the change is “necessary during the COVID-19 response to protect the health and safety of EMS providers by limiting their exposure, conserve resources, and ensure optimal use of equipment to save the greatest number of lives,’’ according to a state Health Department memo issued last week.
