  • NYC: MTA’s ‘Doomsday’ Budget Could Lead to Long Waits for Trains and Buses (10,000 Layoffs)

    Sources tell NY1 the MTA is proposing deep service cuts to subways and bus that could mean long waits between trains and longer walks to the bus stop, plus nearly 10,000 workers laid off. The MTA is planning to present the plan to its board during its Wednesday meeting. MTA officials have threatened 40 to 50 percent transit cuts and layoffs unless the agency gets $12 billion it requested from Washington D.C. The plan obtained by NY1 shows that on weekends, trains could run every 15 minutes, with longer waits between trains on weekdays, and even potential, unspecified suspensions in...

    The group Justice Democrats, which helped elect Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other members of the left-wing “Squad,” recoiled Tuesday at President-elect Joe Biden’s White House staff picks. The influential organization’s public rebuke reflects an internal Democratic Party power struggle two months before Biden takes office. “A Biden administration dominated by corporate-friendly insiders will not help usher in the most progressive Democratic administration in generations… progressives find corporate-friendly Biden appointments unacceptable” the organization wrote on Twitter.

    A wild conference call amongst House Democrats, details of which leaked on Twitter Thursday, shows emotional lawmakers distraught with Nancy Pelosi and the ‘Squad’ over their party’s disastrous election performance. Democrats had expected to pick up 10-15 seats on election day and have instead seen Republicans gain six net seats while being on track to net 10 seats overall. Several members of the caucus “angrily confronted” Pelosi over the losses and blasted radical progressives for tying the party to efforts to “defund the police” and “socialism.”

    The Democrats are right now smelling a Joe Biden win, and they are probably right unless the Lord steps in and changes the current course. I hope He does, but if not, the Left is wasting no time in creating an enemies list, just like the Communist countries like to do, so they can enact their vengeance on all the ‘racist, misogynist and hate-filled Americans’ who voted for Donald Trump twice. Yeah, like all those black and Hispanic ‘racists’ in south Florida who voted for Trump in huge numbers, yeah those guys. “The people who cast the vote decide nothing....
  • De Blasio says Biden will pass ‘New Deal’ and bail out cash-strapped NYC

    Mayor de Blasio is hoping a federal stimulus package akin to FDR’s New Deal will help curtail crime in the Big Apple, he said Monday. Speaking to NY1’s Errol Louis, Hizzoner said if Joe Biden is elected president, New Yorkers should expect a stimulus deal that will help get the city “back on its feet” and combat a spike in murders, shootings and burglaries. “If Joe Biden’s elected president, the most likely time for a major stimulus is February, and I’m thinking along the lines of the New Deal, and he’s obviously talking about emulating FDR,” the mayor said. “The...
  • Five reasons why Democrat turnout will be depressed while GOP turnout will be high in November 2020

    American Thinker ^ | 02/07/2020 | Thomas Lifson
    Because the American electorate is rather evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats, turnout becomes the key to electoral success in November. While a lot can happen in nine months, there are five factors that I see discouraging Democrat turnout and helping the GOP. 1. The Biden family scandals Thanks to Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler and the impeachment lynch mob, the lid has been blown off the Biden family’s practice of trading on the patriarch’s position to enrich themselves. Biden’s campaign is imploding, so he won’t be on the ballot. But the investigations of Hunter and Burisma are heating up and...
  • AOC Loses It On Trump: These ‘MotherF***ers’ Paying $750 In Taxes, Says Americans Not Safe If Biden Loses

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) outlined her radical views in a new interview, going after President Trump for allegedly paying only $750 in taxes, and suggesting that “these motherf***ers” get away with paying such low amounts while opposing publicly-funded programs like free college tuition. In a wide-ranging interview and photoshoot with Vanity Fair, AOC is asked to discuss the New York Times report that claimed the President had paid so little in taxes. That NYT report also noted that Trump “made the required payment to the I.R.S. for income taxes he might owe — $1 million for 2016 and $4.2 million for...

    Front Page ^ | 10/29/20 | Daniel Greenfield
    This wasn't a memorial by the actual synagogue that was shot up. Instead Bend the Arc, a toxic leftist group backed by Soros' son, tried to hijack the memorialization of the mass shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue by an alt-righter to push an anti-Israel and anti-Jewish agenda. And who better to invite to that kind of circus than Senator Bernie Sanders. Sanders delivered, bashing Israel, and insisting that the shooting of 11 Jews wasn't really about Jews, but about "multiracial democracy" and "immigrants, people of color, LGBTQ people". Then he shifted over to insisting, "All over the world...

    Progressives, socialists and Bernie Bros are gearing up for war should Joe Biden fall short of his quest to unseat President Trump in Tuesday’s election. “You would see a complete repudiation of the Democratic establishment as we know it,” said Jabari Brisport, 33, a Democratic Socialist-backed candidate for state Senate expected to easily win a Brooklyn seat next week. “The Democratic establishment is not working for everyday people.” Brisport said a Biden loss would completely discredit the moderate wing of the party, paving the way for more successful insurgents like himself. “It’s going to be the mirror image of what...

    he U.S. Department of Justice on Wednesday increased the size of an inquiry which could reveal if the state is lowballing the number of COVID-19 fatalities among New York nursing home residents. The Associated Press reported that the DOJ is calling for information from hundreds of private facilities. The news outlet said that the DOJ letter requested a breakout of hospital fatalities that the health department has not shared publicly, and expands to over 600 facilities a similar request from earlier this year targeting a much smaller number of public facilities....

    WSJ ^ | October 15, 2020 | WSJ Editorial Board
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo likes to say that his virus policies, including a strict, prolonged lockdown of New York City, are based on science. Well, he finally revealed the truth when he told Jewish leaders last week that he is locking down their communities again due to public fear. Cases in Brooklyn, Queens and some New York City suburbs have been rising, and Mr. Cuomo blames orthodox Jewish communities not adhering to his rules. Last week he shut down nonessential businesses and schools in these communities and limited gatherings at houses of worship to 10 people. “They have never...
  • Why Won't Joe Biden Repudiate Anti-Semitic Democrats? | Opinion

    Newsweek ^ | 10/14/20 | Bruce Abramson and Jeff Ballabon
    At the first debate, Joe Biden took ownership of today's Democrats with an uncharacteristically clear proclamation: "I am the Democratic Party." With that, Biden assumed responsibility for repudiating and distancing himself from the anti-Semitism surging through his party's ranks. Anti-Semitism has been on full display among Democratic leaders and left-wing protest groups alike in recent years. Leaders of the Women's March, for example, proved so undeniably anti-Semitic that even former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz felt compelled to distance herself. Yet those same anti-Semites—Linda Sarsour and Tamika Mallory—were featured speakers at this summer's Democratic convention. The Women's March since recruited new...

    Bari Weiss’s recent essay in Tablet, “Stop Being Shocked,” is a must-read for anyone hot on the trail of the metaphysical shift going on in American culture. She exposes the threat leftism poses to Jewish self-identity, but at a deeper level, she adds to the growing body of evidence proving the hopeless incompatibility of leftism and liberalism.Weiss begins with a useful definition of liberalism: [T]he belief that everyone is equal because everyone is created in the image of God. The belief in the sacredness of the individual over the group or the tribe. The belief that the rule of...

    There has been a rash of incidents in New York City subway stations that have ordinary people scared for their safety. Just last Friday, a homeless mentally ill man pushed a woman from the platform onto the subway tracks, She managed to climb to safety and the police arrested the perpetrator, but with crime in the city careening out of control, the mentally ill homeless problem has taken on a larger dimension. Authorities are at a loss as to what to do about it. The truth is, it’s complicated. You can’t just snatch the mentally ill off the streets and...

Cortez added: 'Republicans do this because they don't believe Dems have the stones to play hardball like they do. And for a long time they've been correct. But do not let them bully the public into thinking their bulldozing is normal but a response isn't. There is a legal process for expansion.' Her initial tweet was reposted by fellow squad member Ilhan Omar, who also wrote: 'Expand the court.' House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: 'Should we expand the...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is facing new allegations of antisemitism after he threatened to cut off public assistance to yeshivas, or religious seminaries, this weekend, and added that some Jews had “never complied” with coronavirus rules. New York CBS affiliate WLNY reported: As enforcement ramps up in the city’s COVID-19 cluster zones, the governor again made it clear on a telephone conference call on Thursday who he felt the problem was. “Some of the complexity in the enforcement here, especially with members of the ultra Orthodox community. They have never complied with the rules,” Cuomo said. The governor’s words...
