    Last October a horrific stretch limousine crash killed 20 people and rocked the state of New York. As a result, Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants to introduce a raft of transportation safety reforms including an outright ban on long limos.In an event described by the New York Times as the “deadliest U.S accident in nine years,” 17 passengers in a stretched Ford Excursion limousine, the vehicle’s driver, and two pedestrians died in a crash in the small upstate town of Schoharie, NY. The subsequent investigation revealed that the limo had failed its last safety inspection and should not have been on...

    A radical pro-abortion bill in New York could make being pro-life a crime, pro-life state leaders warned this week. The so-called Reproductive Health Act would erase basically every regulation and restriction on abortion in the state, and declare the killing of unborn babies a fundamental right. Kathleen Gallagher, director of pro-life activities for the New York State Catholic Conference, told the Catholic News Service that the pro-abortion bill foresees a time in New York where its a crime to be pro-life. New York State Right to Life predicted that the bill will lead to the suppression of pro-lifers freedom of...

    President Trump late Saturday dismissed talk of a potential 2020 White House bid by Joe Biden, calling the former vice president weak. Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro during an interview on "Justice with Judge Jeanine" that Biden "was always a 1 percenter. "He ran two or three times, he never got above 1 percent," Trump said. "And then, [former President] Obama came along and took him off the trash heap, and he became a vice president, and now he's probably leading," he added. Trump also said Biden is weak, adding that well see what happens with him. Trump...

    Christian Post ^ | 01/10/2019 | Samuel Smith
    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is refusing to sign the states budget unless the legislature passes a bill that makes abortion up until birth for any reason legal in the state. He is also calling on the legislature to enshrine abortion as a right guaranteed in the state constitution. While delivering a pro-abortion speech at Barnard College in Manhattan with former first lady Hillary Clinton at his side, the 61-year-old Democrat vowed not to support the 2019-2020 state budget legislation until the state legislature approves the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act. Cuomos vow comes after Democrats...

    American Thinker ^ | 01/08/2019 | Silvio Canto Jr.
    Not surprisingly, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York reminded everyone that he is a man from the left.  This is what he said as he started a third term: The promise that attracted 5,000 people a day from across the globe to come to this sacred place through this historic portal on Ellis Island is not a faded memory of yesterday, but a shining beacon for a better tomorrow. Nowhere to be found in Cuomo's energetic homily was the word "legal," an omission clearly calculated to obscure the distinction between controlled lawful immigration – Ellis Island as iconic portal to America – and...

As if abortions werent dangerous enough, the group has taken it upon themselves to challenge the state law that required Medical Doctors to perform abortions.

    Casting himself as a key opposing figure to President Trump, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo invoked the name of Trump's immigrant grandfather in a Tuesday speech at Ellis Island. "This is the harbor where Fredrick Trump arrived from Germany, and whose grandson would become President of the United States," Cuomo said at his third inaugural address, rattling off a list of dignitaries whose parents and grandparents came through the island, including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Secretary of State Colin Powell and Vice President Mike Pence. "This is not a faded memory of yesterday, but rather a shining beacon...

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, in a fiery address on Monday, declared New York independent from the federal government. Invoking the Revolutionary War, the third-term Democratic governor said the state must stand up to what he describes as a federal assault on the states values, while outlining his 20-point agenda for the coming legislative session. Ladies and gentlemen, this nation is in crisis. The social fabric is fraying and it is nearing its breaking point, he said. We must stand up to this tyranny once again. Not with muskets the way our founders did. But with our voices and our votes...

    New York City Council members grilled Amazon executives about the company's plan to build a secondary headquarters in New York during a contentious hearing Wednesday that was interrupted several times by jeering protesters. The council members, who have no vote on the project and no apparent path to block it, demanded to know why the city and New York state were offering Amazon up to $2.8 billion in tax breaks and grants to build the new headquarters in the Long Island City neighborhood of Queens. "We have a crumbling subway system, record homelessness, public housing that is in crisis, overcrowded...

    The City Council on Thursday put its political clout behind a proposal in Albany to overhaul state health care by creating a Medicare for all program that would raise taxes by $139 billion a year. The single-payer plan would extend coverage to the roughly 1 million uninsured New Yorkers including undocumented immigrants and eliminate all co-pays and deductibles.

    Prominent Buffalo developer Louis Ciminelli has been sentenced to 28 months in Federal prison along with a $500 thousand fine for his conviction on charges in connection with the 'Buffalo Billion' program.

Ciminelli and three others were convicted over the summer. Prosecutors say the scheme involved state-funded contracts worth more than $850 million. Prosecutors say Ciminelli and others in his company contributed nearly $100,000 to Cuomo's campaign. The Democratic...

    Full title: Harvey Weinstein's Lawyer Gave $10,000 To Manhattan DA After He Declined To File Sexual Assault Charges Hollywood producer Harvey Weinsteins lawyer delivered $10,000 to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. in 2015, in the months after Vances office decided not to prosecute Weinstein over sexual assault allegations, according to an International Business Times review of campaign finance documents. That contribution from attorney David Boies who previously headlined a fundraiser for Vance was a fraction of the more than $182,000 that Boies, his son and his law partners have delivered to the Democrat during his political career....

    Like many New Yorkers, I want Amazon to come to our state and its job creation to benefit our residents. You'd be hard pressed to find a city or state in America that would not welcome the economic activity created by capitalism. But the announcement by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio that Amazon will receive $3 billion in our tax dollars in exchange for making Long Island City its new headquarters left fiscal policy wonks scratching their heads and taxpayers holding the bag. Despite some unfriendly policies adopted by Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo over the years placing...
