    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is accused of 'rigging state license plate contest in favor of design featuring bridge named after his father Mario' The contest asks New York residents to pick their favorite among five plates Four are a combination of the Statue of Liberty and the state's motto, 'Excelsior' A fifth shows just the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, completed in 2018 The span, originally the Tappan Zee, was named after the now-governor's dad Voters favoring a Statue Of Liberty plate will be split, making it more likely the bridge option will win, say conspiracy theorists The bridge,...

    As you'll see in the screencap, MSNBC continues to pass Susan Del Percio off as a "Republican strategist." In fact, her last strategery gig was as an adviser to Andrew Cuomo, the liberal Democrat governor of New York. In any case, when it comes to strategy, Del Percio's specialty seems to be recommending personal attacks on Republicans and other opponents. In July, our Gregory Price caught Del Percio recommending that constituents "attack" and "scare" their Republican congressmen for purposes of forcing them to support a piece of Democrat legislation. Appearing on MSNBC today to discuss Saturday's West Texas shootings, Del...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are trying to find the suspect in an assault that may have been fueled by hate. The victim is out of the hospital and recovering at home. His family tells CBS2’s Ali Bauman the beloved father and grandfather was exercising on the fields at a Crown Heights park like he does every week when he was blindsided by a man yielding a very large rock. Investigators say the suspect hit the 63-year-old man with a paving stone Tuesday morning inside Lincoln Terrace Park.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for two suspects who they say attacked an Orthodox Jewish man in front of a synagogue in Brooklyn. It’s the third attack on Orthodox men in Brooklyn in less than a week, according to police. It happened in Midwood on Saturday night just as Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, was coming to an end, CBS2’s Marc Liverman reported. Police said the 45-year-old victim was walking home when he saw two men drinking in front of a synagogue near Avenue J and East 15th Street. They said there was some type of verbal dispute. That’s...
  • Why does New York City lose more residents than the rest of America?

    New York City is losing more than 270 residents each day, more than any other city in the United States, according to census data analyzed by Bloomberg. Driving the Big Apple residents away are high taxes, staggering costs of living, and a significant decline in quality of life. While local politicians watch swaths of people pack up and leave, they continue to prioritize rank partisanship over smart policy. As a result, the great exodus is likely to accelerate in the months and years to come. New York City is home to the highest tax burden in the nation. Its residents...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo doubled down last week on his blame-the-messenger approach to New York’s growing shortage of natural-gas supplies by ordering the Department of Public Service to “broaden its investigation” of National Grid and threatening to “find another franchisee.” Anything, rather than admit that his own policies are at fault. The utility has stopped taking new gas customers in parts of Long Island, Brooklyn and Queens where it can’t handle the new demand — because Team Cuomo vetoed the proposed Williams pipeline to bring in supplies from New Jersey. (Jersey is also blocking the pipeline, since Gov. Phil Murphy is...

    Bill Larkin, who spent four decades in the New York state legislature following a distinguished military career that brought him to the battlefields of World War II and the Korea War, has died, his family announced Sunday. He was 91. “America and the State of New York have lost a dedicated public servant, soldier and statesman,” the family said in a statement. “Our family lost a husband, father grandfather, great-grandfather and so much more.” The Albany legend and legislative war horse died Saturday night, his spokesman Brian Maher said. Gov. Andrew Cuomo lauded Larkin as “a constant force for good”...

    There’s a battle brewing in Brooklyn and it’s shaping up to be yet another fight between New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor (and presidential candidate, for some reason) Bill de Blasio. Seeing these two mixing it up is nothing new, as the friction between them is pretty much legendary. But this dustup is a bit unusual because it involves the fate of one of New York City’s legendary pizza joints. The taxman came and shut down the Di Fara pizzeria this week, kicking everyone out and padlocking the doors. A sign was posted saying that the...

    Turning every political conflict into an ethnic battle—no matter how hard one has to squint to see the ethnic element of it—not only corrodes our ability to deal with each other as full-fledged individuals but tends to destroy whatever hope there was of dealing with the more nuanced issues at hand. I remember pitying Iraq a bit a decade ago when observers noted its political coalitions are almost always ethnic or tribal, with people voting for members of their own tribe. It’s getting harder to believe the U.S. will end up any other way, though. Media figures such as CNN’s...

    “When the people shall have nothing more to eat, they will eat the rich.” Philosopher Rousseau said those words about the French Revolution more than 200 years ago, but they could well have been a talking point in the Democratic debates this week. The candidates brushed aside repeated questions about raising taxes to pay the trillions promised for free college, universal health care, reparations and new homes for African Americans, free health care for the undocumented, massive investment in traditionally black colleges, and other “big ideas” that various candidates pledged. What they all agreed on was that the “rich” would...

    Less than six weeks after Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) signed into law New York’s so-called “Green Light Bill,” Assembly Bill (AB) 3675, which allows illegal aliens to apply for drivers’ licenses, a second county clerk has stepped forward to sue the state in an attempt to prevent the law from taking effect. On July 24, Rensselaer County Clerk Frank Merola (R) followed Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns (D) lead and filed suit. Recent polls show a clear majority of New Yorkers are against giving drivers’ licenses to illegal aliens. Rensselaer County Clerk Merola called the Green Light Law a “travesty,”...

    AUG. 29, 2018 (FLASHBACK) In late June, New York governor Andrew Cuomo quietly ordered the suspension of an ongoing investigation into whether the Manhattan District Attorney’s office had mishandled sexual-assault allegations made against Harvey Weinstein in March of 2015. As it turns out, this decision came just a few days after Weinstein’s former lawyer’s firm donated $25,000 to Cuomo’s reelection campaign, according to an illuminating new report. According to the report, which was published on Capital & Main, Cuomo’s campaign received a $25,000 donation from Weinstein’s former laywer David Boies’s firm on June 20. On June 26, Cuomo ordered the...

    The lights went out on Broadway Saturday night, and Bill de Blasio was a thousand miles away in Iowa. It was the moment that perfectly captured his distracted, ego-driven failure of a mayoralty. Bill de Blasio does not care about New York City. He does not care about its people. He does not care about how it’s run. He does not care about you or your taxes, creating jobs or improving lives. All Bill de Blasio cares about is Bill de Blasio. And so, for the good of the city, Gov. Andrew Cuomo needs to remove the mayor from office....

    As we recently learned, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed a new bill into law allowing illegal aliens to obtain state drivers licenses, despite the measure being broadly unpopular among voters. Concerns over this measure holding the potential for voter fraud or access to public services by those not allowed to receive them were brushed off and the Democratic majority forced the measure through on party lines. But perhaps this isn’t the end of the story.This week a county clerk from the western part of the state filed a lawsuit against the Governor, the state District Attorney and the...

    As the battle over President Trump’s federal taxes intensifies in Washington, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York signed a bill on Monday to allow congressional committees to access the president’s state tax returns. The bill requires state tax officials to release the president’s state returns for any “specified and legitimate legislative purpose” on the request of the chair of one of three congressional committees: the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation.

    New York/United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- When I first noted Andrew Cuomo’s efforts to misuse financial regulations against the National Rifle Association, I had hope that it would fail. I had hope that it would be like a last, desperate throw of the dice for one of the worst anti-Second Amendment extremists in the country. Furthermore, I had hope that its failure would be assured by the fact that Second Amendment supporters would unite against the abuses. To my sorrow and anger, I was wrong. Instead, over a year after this started, Andrew Cuomo is winning. An anti-Second Amendment extremist who...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo both skipped Wednesday’s funeral for retired NYPD Detective Luis Alvarez, who spent his dying days fighting for fellow first responders sickened by the Sept. 11 terror attacks. The notable absences came little more than a month after both officials were no-shows at a solemn, May 30 ceremony to dedicate a Ground Zero memorial to the 2,000-plus victims killed by exposure to toxins during the recovery effort.

    Tens of thousands of marchers paraded through New York streets Sunday in a huge LGBTQ pride parade, with many proudly carrying rainbow flags or carrying signs. On foot, astride motorcycles or riding on flatbed trucks, participants slowly covered the 2-mile route from Midtown Manhattan to Greenwich Village, where the movement for gay rights was born after the so-called Stonewall riots of 1969.

    President Trump has had enough of the liberal New York officials who are waging a legal campaign against him. Former state attorney general Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against Trump last year accusing him of using the Trump Foundation for his own political purposes. The president agreed to dissolve the foundation's assets to other nonprofit organizations, but New York leaders continued to probe. When Letitia James was elected last year after Schneiderman resigned over sexual misconduct allegations, she promised to use her new power specifically to target Trump. And that she has. In her first year on the job, she has...
  • Loophole in law granting illegal immigrants driver’s licenses could lead to voter fraud

    A loophole in the new law granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants could allow hundreds of thousands of people to fraudulently register to vote in New York, according to critics, the state Board of Elections and the bill’s own sponsor. The Green Light Bill, which passed the Senate 33-29 Monday and was signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, allows illegal immigrants to obtain “standard” state driver’s licenses that can be used for identification and to board domestic flights. But it is also the sole document required to register to vote, according to officials. Even legislative sponsor Luis Sepúlveda (D-Bronx) admitted the...
