    GOP gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro said Monday that he wouldn’t have invited the founder of a far-right organization to address the Metropolitan Republican Club on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The appearance of Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes’ club on Friday was followed by violent beat-downs of protesters outside that appeared to involve dozens of members of the group.
  • Why de Blasio Just Helped Republicans More Than Democrats While Campaigning for Gillum

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was in the battleground state of Florida this past weekend campaigning for the Bernie Sanders-backed Democratic nominee for governor, Andrew Gillum, but it is most likely the Republican ticket of Ron DeSantis and Janette Nunez that he helped by being there. Here in New York City, we’re facing record high homelessness, deplorable conditions in city public housing, and a crumbling transit system. Homeowners have also seen a 44% increase in the property taxes since de Blasio took office and now a push to open more homeless shelters, jails and even heroin injection centers in their neighborhoods....

    There are a lot of reasons I’m not a Democrat. For example, I believe that… 1. Jesus, America, and capitalism have been the three greatest forces of good in world history. 2. An attractive woman posing with an AR-15 beats a screaming feminist in a pussy hat 10 times out of 10. 3. You can’t #believeallwomen or #believeallmen; you have to #believetheevidence. 4. It’s wrong and disgusting to harass people in restaurants and at their home just because you disagree with them politically. Also if you block traffic to get attention for your cause, whatever it may be, I am...

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo came under fire for criticizing pro-life and pro-Second Amendment citizens of his state -- and saying "that is not who New Yorkers are." Their problem is not me and democrats, their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay, is that who they are? Because if that is who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are. Now his office is backtracking and insisting...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when during a radio interview he said “extreme conservatives” have “no place” in the Empire State. Who are these people? Among others, he said, those who are “right to life” or “anti-gay.”Later he tried to walk back this naked and nasty bit of intolerance, reassuring us that those who are “anti-choice” (one presumes he got a tongue-lashing from NARAL for saying “right to life” the first time) could stay in New York after all. But that bell, as the saying goes, can’t be un-rung.Catholics, of course, are “right to life”...

    Gov. Cuomo did his best Uncle Sam impression on Sunday, preaching his love for the “red, white, and blue,” and sounding off against Washington partisanship — while still stumping for a Democrat-controlled Congress “that can stop this president.” “To govern, to live together, it can’t be red or blue. It can’t be conservative or liberal. You have to bring everyone together,” said Cuomo in an appearance on John Catsimatidis’s AM 970 radio show. “I think, frankly, that’s the point the president misses time and time again. He plays to the polarization.”

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) on Sunday called on the FBI to investigate violent clashes connected to the right-wing group the “Proud Boys.” In a statement, Cuomo blamed President Trump for the “hatred and violence” that he tied to the altercations. "The bottom line is that I hold the President responsible for demonizing differences, fanning the flames of racism and division and creating a fire of hatred and violence," Cuomo said.“These vile acts of racism, division and discrimination are repugnant to American values, and have no place in our state,” he added. Three men were arrested on assault and...

    Infamous cop-killer Herman Bell was among the parolees who voted in the Democratic primary between Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cynthia Nixon, according to the Board of Elections. It’s not known whom Bell voted for — but records show his election district went with Cuomo by a better than 2-to-1 margin.

    With the election less than a month away, Gov. Andrew Cuomo still hasn’t agreed to a single debate with Republican challenger Marc Molinaro. Critics — who include Democrats — say that’s not how democracy should operate. “The opponent is not Donald Trump. The opponent in Marc Molinaro,” said City Councilman Ruben Diaz Sr (D-Bronx). “Stop hiding! Show the people why you deserve a third term.”

    ACORNÂ’s tactics live on in the senatorÂ’s elevator confrontation with activists from a Soros-backed group. On Friday morning, two women raced past reporters and security officers and blocked a senators-only elevator in the U.S. Capitol. They cornered Arizona senator Jeff Flake, who had just announced he was going to vote yes on moving Brett KavanaughÂ’s nomination out of the Judiciary Committee and onto the Senate floor for a full debate. The women wouldnÂ’t let Flake leave until they had yelled at him, face to face, for several minutes. Anyone who thinks the two left-wing activists acted without a well-thought-out plan...

    Cuomo blames weather for New York's population decline Posted: Sep 25 2018 03:25PM EDT Updated: Sep 25 2018 03:31PM EDT ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo blamed the upstate weather for prompting New Yorkers to flee to other states. Cuomo told reporters Tuesday that while job losses and high taxes once drove people to leave New York, his administration has ended that trend and improved the local economic situation. He said many of the New Yorkers leaving the state now are doing so for personal reasons or decisions that he called "climate based." The comments came after Cuomo's...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), anxious to build on the momentum set in motion by his earlier assertion that “America was never that great,” demanded a better measure of the nation's economic health. “I know that the Trump Administration is touting last quarter's 4.2% rise in GDP as a sign that the economy is booming,” the Governor observed. “But is this really the best measure we can come up with? GDP growth never got as high as 3% during the Obama Administration. But can we really say that Americans weren't better off then?” “The problem with GDP is that it is...

    Okay, I don't see anyone else starting it so I'm starting this New York Primary Election Discussion Thread. The big election of interest in this primary is Menshevik Cuomo vs Bolshevik Nixon for governor in the Democrat party. The latest poll gave the Menshevik 40 points over the Bolshevik but I think it will be much closer. Also I think this race will be the prelude for the almost inevitable split of the Democrats permanently into their Bolshevik and Menshevik factions. The polls close at 9 PM. And if their are other races you want to comment on, have at...

    Albany, N.Y. - New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced an executive order earlier this year to allow 24,000 parolees to vote in upcoming elections after 7pm. That initiative will be on display for the first time Thursday as parolees, including sex offenders, head to the polls. Assemblyman Ray Walter of Amherst is warning parents. "I think parents need to be aware of it, school administrators need to be aware of it, and election officials need to be aware of it, and remove kids from after-school and athletic activities". Back in May, Governor Cuomo issued the blanket pardon, giving 24,000 parolees...

    Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo leads challenger Cynthia Nixon by more than 40 points ahead of Thursday’s Democratic gubernatorial primary, according to a poll published Monday. Sixty-three percent of “likely Democratic voters” favor Cuomo compared to 22 percent who favor Nixon, according to a Siena College poll referenced by 13 WHAM ABC. That represents an even bigger lead for Cuomo than he enjoyed in late July, when 60 percent of likely Democratic voters leaned toward Cuomo, and 29 percent leaned Nixon, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    It’s four more days until the big Democratic primary in New York, and gubernatorial candidate (and actress) Cynthia Nixon is pulling out all the stops. In an interview this week, she returned to one of the favorite talking points of Democratic socialists these days, Medicare for all. Speaking with the New York Daily News, Nixon was adamant that lawmakers should move forward and pass “her plan” rather than listening to Governor Andrew Cuomo who has managed to resist the idea so far. And how will New York pay for this massive show of generosity to its residents? Nixon openly...

    On the eve of Rosh Hashanah, Cynthia Nixon and her campaign supporters are demanding Gov. Cuomo and the state’s Democratic Party repent for a mailer emblazoned with her picture and the words “anti-Semitism.” “The mailers that Governor Cuomo and the NY State Democratic Party have sent out are not only an attack on my family, but on all New Yorkers,” Nixon tweeted Sunday. “At a time when anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, and other hate crimes are on the rise, it’s sickening to exploit people’s real fears like this.”
