    Several Republican groups are suing the state of New York and Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) after she signed a measure expanding access to absentee voting. “Kathy Hochul and extreme New York Democrats are trying to destroy what is left of election integrity in New York,” House GOP Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (N.Y.) said in a statement Wednesday. “As a New York voter, I am proud to lead this coalition in defending basic election integrity on behalf of all New Yorkers.” On Wednesday, Hochul signed a package of bills designed to expand voting access across the Empire State, which allows registered voters...
  • Gov. Hochul signs new bills making it easier for (democrat) New Yorkers to vote (cheat)

    Gov. Kathy Hochul expanded voting rights for New Yorkers with a new legislation. Gov. Hochul signed a new bill Tuesday that is expected to improve the voting process, including registering and casting ballots. She says every New Yorker will be able to vote early by mail, even on the same day they got registered. Gov. Hochul adds this will be especially helpful for busy voters who simply can't vote during normal hours. There are also new school programs being planned to get kids pre-registered, so they are ready to vote the day they turn 18 years old.
  • Delays, denials, and a new lawsuit: New York's background checks on ammo sales off to a rough start

    Buying ammunition used to be a relatively simple procedure in New York. You went into a gun store or other retailer, picked up what you wanted, paid for it, and walked out the door. Starting last week, however, all ammo sales must go through a background check conducted by the National Instant Check System with the New York State Police serving as a middleman between ammo sellers and the FBI’s background check system. The new law not only makes it more expensive to purchase a gun and ammunition in the state (new background check fees on gun purchases add an...

    New York is in a state of decline — with a worsening quality of life tied to sky high costs of housing, rampant crime and an unrelenting migrant crisis, according to a new poll. Fifty-seven percent of 804 registered voters who participated in the Siena College Poll released Tuesday said the quality of life in the Empire State is getting worse, while 27% said it was the same and just 14% said it was better. “A huge majority of Republicans, a large majority of independents and a plurality of Democrats all say the quality of life in New York is...

    A New York appeals court judge halted the scheduled Oct. 2 trial in New York Attorney General Letitia James' fraud lawsuit against former President Donald Trump and the Trump Organization, a spokesman for the court confirmed Thursday. State Justice David Friedman, with the 1st Department of the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, granted an interim stay of the trial—slated to start Oct. 2—and referred the matter to a five-judge panel, which expects to rule in the last week of September, a spokesperson said. He also ordered the full appeals court to consider a reported lawsuit that President Trump had...
  • NEW YORK CITY NYC teachers win jobs back with backpay after refusing COVID-19 vaccine

    A New York judge said Wednesday that 10 employees fired by the New York City Department of Education for refusing the COVID-19 vaccine must be reinstated with back pay. In a major victory for vaccine mandate opponents, State Supreme Court Judge Ralph J. Porzio held that the city's denials of religious accommodation to certain employees were unlawful, arbitrary and capricious. The case, DiCapua v. City of New York, concerned school principals, teachers and other educators who sued after city officials rejected their claims for a religious exemption to the vaccine mandate. "This Court sees no rational basis for not allowing...

    A Queens lawmaker has introduced legislation to spread the burden of dealing with the migrant crisis across New York State, as the Big Apple continues to struggle to handle the influx of asylum seekers. In one of the bills put forward by Assemblywoman Jenifer Rajkumar in Albany Thursday, local governments would be barred from blocking asylum seekers from being housed in their counties through emergency orders.

    Rensselaer County Executive Steve McLaughlin (R) is calling on New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) to resign after an illegal alien, previously arrested by United States Border Patrol, is accused of murdering a 28-year-old man. As Breitbart News reported, 20-year-old illegal alien Carlos Corrales-Ramirez of Honduras was arrested and charged this week with second-degree murder and first-degree assault in the stabbing death of 28-year-old Jario Hernandez-Sanchez in the city of Troy, New York.

    Disturbing footage shows a man hitting a 60-year old woman more than 50 times with her own cane in a Harlem subway station. The attack happened on Friday just before 3:30 a.m. when the woman was walking at the West 116 Street and Lenox Avenue station, NYPD officials told The Post. The shocking two-minute video showed the unidentified male lunging at the woman with an umbrella and the woman trying to fight him off with her cane. The suspect was able to grab the woman’s cane as she fell to the ground screaming. The man then struck the woman with...

    ALBANY, N.Y. - The Biden administration pushed back Monday at criticism that it hasn’t done enough to help New York address its migrant crisis, citing two dozen areas where the city can strengthen its migrant operations. Two letters obtained by POLITICO were sent to Gov. Kathy Hochul and Mayor Eric Adams on Monday from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas in response to the city and state’s concerns over not getting more help from the federal government. Mayorkas mentioned structural and operational issues found during a week-long assessment of the city’s operations starting on Aug. 7, but didn’t give specifics, saying...

    More than half of New York’s registered voters believe the state is headed in the wrong direction — and a whopping 80% are demanding term limits for the governor and legislators, a startling new poll shows. The fed-up respondents gave Gov. Kathy Hochul a dismal 40% approval rating, a big drop from her 50% figure from a survey released just three months ago, according to the independent Unite NY’s Voter Empowerment Index unveiled Sunday. Other state lawmakers fared even worse with a 27% approval rating, down from their recent 36%. Overall, 53% of the state’s voters said they don’t like...

    New York taxpayers will dole out $20 million a month to house migrants on Randall’s Island, according to a state source — or $10,000 per asylum-seeker if the site fills all of its 2,000 beds.The makeshift facility off Manhattan is one of four migrant housing sites fully funded by the state as part of a desperate effort to keep up with the flood of migrants who have New York City at its breaking point.A well-placed source with the state told The Post over the weekend that the state is providing $20 million a month to run the Randall’s center.New York...

    New York is a sanctuary state. New York City is a sanctuary city. New York City is a sanctuary city.... The governor and the mayor are on record saying so over and over again. It was all fun and games while they were trashing Governor Abbott and others like then-Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona. Abbott and Ducey worked together and sent busloads of illegal aliens to big cities in the Northeast. Washington, D.C., New York City, Philadelphia, then to Chicago, and Denver, and Los Angeles. All sanctuary cities, according to their leftist mayors. Okay. Surely these mayors will welcome a...

Buckley’s death in a Washington, DC, hospital was the result of complications from a fall, his nephew, author and political satirist Christopher Buckley, told the New York Times Friday.

    NEW YORK - New York’s Attorney General Tish James made a startling move last week: She fired her only client. James took the rare step of declining to represent the state and its governor, fellow Democrat Kathy Hochul, by recusing herself from a case brought to force New York City to house those in need, including tens of thousands of migrants. “We had a philosophical difference” is all James would say when asked about the split Monday. Hochul believes the legal requirement to provide shelter to those in need only applies to New York City and not statewide as she...

    Following the second arrest of a migrant on sexual assault charges, Erie County has suspended any transportation of new migrants from New York City to area hotels. Cheektowaga Police Chief Brian Gould announced Saturday the arrest of 22-year-old Kindu Jeancy of the Democratic Republic of Congo on a felony sexual abuse charge. The arrest followed a complaint from a 27-year-old Buffalo woman who works at the Best Western on Dingens Street where the incident is alleged to have taken place. Gould appeared frustrated at the situation his department has been dealing with at the hotel, and said he has reached...

    The alleged leader of an MS-13 clique in New York City “was the one signing the death warrants” for the ruthless gang — including ordering up the slaying of a 16-year-old boy found nearly decapitated in a Queens park, federal prosecutors said Monday in closing arguments at his murder trial. Melvi Amador-Rios, 32, the head of the Centrales Locos Salvatruchas clique of MS-13, was allegedly behind the gruesome stabbing death of Julio Vasquez in 2017, and also called for the murder of another teen who was left paralyzed by the attempt on his life, according to prosecutors. “They kill anyone...

    New York is facing an unimaginable crisis that harks back to the economic downturn of 1975, when the Daily News famously ran the headline “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” Our city, which has worked tirelessly to recover from the lowest lows we endured during the COVID-19 pandemic, has become the epicenter of the country’s migrant crisis and a symbol of the Biden administration’s failures at the southern border. More than 93,000 migrants have arrived in New York since spring 2022; many have been sleeping on the sidewalks in front of the makeshift shelter at the former Roosevelt Hotel and wandering...

    Talk abut a fishy thing to do! Some Hamptons teens threw a giant fish off the roof of the fancy Le Bilboquet restaurant in Sag Harbor, sources exclusively tell Page Six — and the incoming catch of the day crashed down on tables, causing chaos among well-heeled diners. A source told us of the packed-to-the-gills hot spot: “A 20-pound striped bass was thrown from the roof of Bilboquet by two teenagers and landed on a table, sending glasses and plates flying!” The East End insider said, “Medics were called for a woman who was cut and bleeding, and the cops...
