    According to the news outlet CNN, Ramaswamy called the climate change agenda a hoax, which drew reactions from other candidates, including former Vice President Mike Pence, who labeled him a "rookie." Meanwhile, fellow Republican and presidential candidate Chris Christie attacked Ramaswamy, saying, "I've had enough already tonight of a guy who sounds like ChatGPT." "Climate change is a hoax...The reality is more people are dying of bad climate change policies than they are of actual climate change," Ramaswamy had said Details on Christie's Obama remarks Christie continued to lay into the Indian-American during the debate, saying, "He stands up here,...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez told CNN’s Chris Wallace that she has lived in a constant state of fear for her own well-being since she was first elected to Congress. The New York Democrat described how her concern over threats has affected her life during an appearance on Friday’s edition of CNN’s “Who’s Talking To Chris Wallace?” “Do you feel your life is in danger?” Wallace asked. “Absolutely, I felt that my life has been in danger since the moment that I won my primary election in 2018. And it became especially intensified when I was first brought into Congress in 2019,”...

    Lawyers for Sandy Hook families, who were recently awarded a billion dollar compensatory judgment against radio host Alex Jones, are now seeking the “highest possible“ amount in punitive damages totaling $2.75 trillion in hopes to take Jones off the air forever.The cartoonishly large amount, which supposedly factors in 550 million “social media exposures” that Infowars would have generated on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook in the three years following the mass shooting and multiplies it by $5,000, was reported by Bloomberg News Friday.Sandy Hook families asked a Connecticut judge to order Alex Jones to pay $2.75 trillion in damages in addition...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., decided to reveal some "uncomfortable" personal information during a House Oversight Committee hearing about abortion, specifically regarding her personal method of birth control. Before going into a question about treatment of ectopic pregnancies, the New York Democrat noted that such circumstances can arise from the failure of an intrauterine device, or IUD. Ocasio-Cortez also decided to announce that she uses one herself, blaming Republicans for the nature of the abortion debate. "I, for example, since Republicans are forcing this conversation in uncomfortable ways, then I will meet them to it," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I have an IUD....

    An updated financial plan for the Hudson Tunnel Project, a cornerstone of the Gateway Program, has been developed with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and was submitted to FTA on Aug. 27. The plan includes a price increase of nearly $700 million from the 2020 financial plan, but project partners point out their commitment to managing costs and schedule is also reflected in the new financial plan. “The Hudson Tunnel Project is of the utmost importance to the economic well-being of New Jersey, our region and our country,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy. “The updated financial plan that is...
  • No One Noticed When Clinton and Obama Abused Whistleblowers

    American Thinker ^ | October 1, 2019 | Jack Cashill
    Here are two unfortunate realities: the first is that whistleblowing becomes virtuous only when a Republican is the one being whistled on; the second is that deep state Democrats have a habit of manipulating whistleblower laws when it suits their purposes ... The first case involves TWA Flight 800, the 747 that inexplicably crashed off the coast of Long Island in July 1996. As to deep state involvement, the Clinton Department of Justice illegally seized control of the investigation from the National Transportation Safety Board and handed it off to the FBI, which, in turn, ceded real control of the...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) earned praise from “drug justice” advocates after criticizing a growing marijuana legalization and business model that is paving the way for white male investors to reap major profits after minorities spent decades in prisons for selling pot. She made her comments during a House Financial Services subcommittee hearing this week on banking services for the burgeoning cannabis industry as more states legalize the sale and use of marijuana. She suggested the growing industry was “compounding the racial wealth gap” by allowing wealthy white-dominated companies to gain a quick advantage in the industry. She complained that communities...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is being hailed as the new face of the Democratic party after vanquishing Queens party boss Joe Crowley in Tuesday’s primary, but one former co-worker isn’t jumping on her bandwagon. Most of the staff at Flats Fix, the East 16th Street taco and tequila bar, say nice things about Sandy, as they knew her for the four years she worked there, until she quit six months ago to run for Congress. But one waitress has a bad memory of working with Ocasio-Cortez, 28, as Ocasio-Cortez tended bar during the very busy Cinco de Mayo celebration in 2017.At the...

    A New York Democratic assemblywoman was indicted Tuesday for allegedly defrauding government agencies out of tens of thousands of dollars, including the agency in charge of Hurricane Sandy relief. The Department of Justice announced that 'Pamela Harris',57, a New York state assemblywoman, was charged with wire fraud, making false statements, bankruptcy fraud, witness tampering and obstructing justice. The indictment also claims that when Harris learned that law enforcement was investigating her in 2017, she pushed witnesses to lie for her to FBI agents conducting the investigation. “She conducted her schemes victimizing the federal and New York City governments, and then...
  • NY-NJ Gateway Project: Critical Fixes, Big Builds

    The Engineering News-Record ^ | November 15, 2017 | Tom Stabile
    The nearly $30-billion Gateway program to overhaul Northeast Corridor rail lines between Newark and New York City, an array of tunnels, bridges and viaduct over wetlands has two main thrusts: rehabilitation and expansion. These objectives are deeply intertwined—the project team must build new structures in the huge effort before it can upgrade old ones. That’s why digging two 1.4-mile, 28-ft-dia train tunnels under the Hudson River—an estimated $12.9-billion project component—isn’t just an expansion job but a lifeline to free a pair of 107-year-old tubes heavily damaged by Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and in need of a rebuild. It’s also why...

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie rejects Sen. Ted Cruz's (R-TX) memory of the Hurricane Sandy relief bill. Cruz insisted recently that the Sandy bill, created in hopes of helping the victims affected by the storm that hammered New Jersey in 2012, was filled with unnecessary pork spending that had nothing to do with relief efforts. How dare Cruz spew that narrative while standing in Texas shelters and demanding aid on live TV, Christie responded on CNN Wednesday.

But the 12-year-old, who has a string of kills to her name, defiantly vowed never to give up shooting wild beasts and churned out the disputed claim that blood sport like this is a conservation measure that stops the decline in big game numbers. Aryanna shares the images of her and each ­dead creature on her Facebook page complete with captions bragging about the deaths, despite insisting she “loves” animals. In one sick...

    RUSH: All right, here's the Sandy Burglar stuff. By the way, this news coming out yesterday and today is a typical dump going into a slow news time. "Former national security advisor Sandy Berger removed classified documents from National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported yesterday." Now, this has been chalked up here to, "Sandy wasn't thinking," or "Sandy is sloppy," or "Sandy is such a hard worker," or Sandy this or Sandy that. He put it in his socks. He put the papers down his pants or whatever. Now we...

    New York victims of the 2012 storm object to Ted Cruz's vote against relief funds. MINEOLA, N.Y.—Heidi Cruz, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, was met at a campaign event by victims of Superstorm Sandy who protested his opposition to a 2013 bill doling out billions in aid for storm relief and clean-up. People from Long Island and southeast Queens, which were devastated by the October 2012 storm, said the Texas senator’s vote against a $51 billion aid package targeted to New York and New Jersey to recover from the damages disqualified him from the presidency. The 2013...

    New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie may announce a presidential bid as soon as next week, Politico reports. Aides have already said Christie isn't likely to make a move into the crowded GOP primary race until the New Jersey legislature finalizes the state budget around the end of June. But recent travels and staffing changes appear to show he's closing in on a declaration. Christie's campaign-in-waiting announced two additional staff hires in New Hampshire, and earlier this month, longtime Christie aide Maria Comella took a senior position at his political action action committee, Politico reports.

    State Assemblywoman Linda Stender (D-Union) tonight acknowledged that her husband got help from a non-profit group that assists low-income homeowners in demolishing a shore home severely damaged by Hurricane Sandy that records show had been purchased for nearly a half-million dollars. The owner of the Manasquan home — identified in public records as Richard Stender, the assemblywoman's husband — applied to Monmouth County-based Coastal Habitat for Humanity for help, said Maureen Mulligan, the group's executive director.
