    A Democrat party meeting in New York erupted in chaos earlier this week, as Bernie Sanders supporters were denied a motion to vote for DNC chairman and had their microphone cut during an objection. In the ensuing commotion, a delegate for Hillary Clinton allegedly smacked a woman of color twice, once with his hand and another time with his cane.

    New reports indicate the Cuomo administration tried to subvert information about a cancer-causing chemical in the water supply of the town of Hoosick Falls … and nobody seems all that concerned. Documents obtained by Politico show the New York State Department of Health dismissing warnings from the EPA, and refusing to alert residents of the very dangerous situation. Over a year ago, health department officials issued a ‘fact sheet’ indicating that “health effects are not expected to occur from normal use of the water” within days of a contradictory declaration by the EPA which advised residents not to drink or...

    Insurers on the New York health exchange are requesting rate hikes averaging in excess of 17%, with UnitedHealthcare going as high as a whopping 45.6%. UnitedHealthcare has already announced that they would exit most of the Affordable Care Act state exchanges in which they operate in 2017, New York being one of the few exceptions. The biggest health insurer in the country announced that it lost $475 million on the ACA exchanges last year and could lose another $500 million this year. They explained that states in which they would continue to serve – like New York – would be...

    Hudson Valley Community College (HVCC) in upstate New York has a solid baseball team this season. In fact, player Kyle Bestle believes “I think we have a real shot at going to the national championship.” It would be the culmination of years worth of work, practice, and dedication to reach the nationals. A dream come true. Alas, it is not to be. Why? Is it because of a player injury? An unfortunate outcome in the qualifying tournament? Not quite. The HVCC baseball team will not be going to nationals because of Governor Cuomo’s ban on non-essential travel to North Carolina,...

Cedar Brock claimed she “was scared” when she was allegedly “forced to put a shirt back on” by a security guard and responding police officers, after sunbathing nude in a city-owned park maintained by Russell Sage College in Troy, New York.

    At a Common Core forum held Tuesday at Ward Melville High School, Beth Dimino ripped New York State Education Commissioner John King, calling for his “resignation and firing” and describing the Common Core curriculum as a form of “child abuse.” Dimino is a 16-year science teacher in the Comsewogue School District, and serves as President of the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association (PJSTA). Her speech, a short two-minute blast on the curriculum and its supporters received several outbursts of applause, as well as a standing ovation when she walked away from the podium.

    As the month of October has rolled on and stories regarding the train wreck that is Obamacare mount, one has to wonder when the President’s media allies will come to the rescue and skew reality on health care reporting. The answer may be … now. The Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) is once again teaming up with a private U.S. foundation known as the Commonwealth Fund. The Fund, a self-described ‘progressive’ organization, is currently led by David Blumenthal, former senior health adviser to the Obama campaign. The group makes little to no secret of their support for...

    This should come as fantastic news to former President Bill Clinton, or on a smaller scale the serial molester Vito Lopez and his enabler Sheldon Silver. Via the New York Post: It’s bad enough that unpaid interns can’t earn wages — but now a federal judge has ruled they’re not even protected from being groped by their bosses. Manhattan federal Judge Kevin Castel determined that Lihuan Wang, a former intern at Phoenix Satellite Television US, couldn’t bring a sex-harassment claim against the Chinese-language broadcasting company and her former supervisor there because unpaid interns aren’t employees — so they’re not covered...

The book is produced by a website called, which is run by a man named Mark Henry.

    Shortly after the historic election of Barack Obama in 2008, Newsweek magazine ran an article basking in the afterglow of victory, opining about the possibility of American citizens themselves … um, basking in the afterglow. In an article which showed the depths of worship in which the media had descended to support their chosen candidate, Jessica Bennett projected her own excitement upon readers, discussing the possibility of a baby boom sparked by “exhilarated” and “euphoric” Obama fans being “in the mood for love.” The title of the piece, Change You Can Conceive In, tells you all you need to know....

    So what is the main difference between the Huffington Post article, shared 2,300+ times, and our post, which elicits a ban? As near as I can tell, one is from a conservative website, and one is from a liberal website. One is pro-abortion, while the other one mocks the pro-abortion writer. Is there something more going on here with Facebook? We haven’t heard similar stories of censorship from the left side of the aisle. And yet, there seems to be an emerging trend for conservatives on Facebook. Fox News reporter Todd Starnes was recently banned from Facebook for what he...

    In the April edition of the Blaze Magazine, the question was asked of the media, why have American journalists “chosen to embrace Islam and defend it to the hilt against any perceived form of defamation”? The fact that we haven’t answered that question twelve years after the murder of thousands of innocents on September 11th, shows that we have failed to deter the American media’s anti-American agenda. And by extension, we have failed the people of Boston. And for that, we owe the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing a sincere apology. Nowhere has our failure to hold the American...

    Rather than focusing on the real issues here, the AP is doing everything in its power to avoid pointing out the relationship between radical Islamists and terrorism. Similar to the Benghazi terror attack, in which the media found every possible angle to focus on other than the link between Islamic extremists and the attacks. They pointed to Mitt Romney for his statements, they pointed to Newsweek’s ‘Muslim Rage’ cover, at the author, Ayaan Ali Hirsi, and they pointed it at an obscure film that was at that time unknown to the general public.

In other words, a firearm that may have been obtained legally could become illegal under the SAFE Act, and anybody who knows you possess said firearm can report you and earn themselves a cool $500. In addition to the Facebook page, Pat Bailey, a reporter from at CBS 6 in Albany, tweeted...

Those sentenced yesterday were cooperating witnesses in a scheme which saw dozens of voters testify that absentee ballots had been submitted in their names during the 2009 Working Families Party (WFP) primary.

Remember, this is the same man that Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver used hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to shield from sexual harassment charges. We reported on this incident last month.

More video clips from the debates leading up to the Governor's over-reaching gun grab are surfacing, and there is clear evidence supporting the list presented by Mr. McLaughlin as reality.

And in what Cuomo termed "the Webster Provision" — a reference to the Dec. 24 killings of two firefighters fatally shot while responding to a call in a suburb of Rochester — the murder of a first responder will become a felony punishable by life in prison without parole. That's right, a future Presidential hopeful for 2016 is actually bragging about a provision in his gun law named specifically for one individual gun man,...

    On Monday, leaders from the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee (Darrell Idea and Jason Chaffetz) sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asking why requests for protection were denied to the consulate in Libya despite repeated attacks against U.S. personnel. The letter outlined 13 specific security threats over a six-month timeframe prior to the deadly attack on September 11th, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomats. The committee also indicated that they would be holding a hearing on the security lapses next week. Clinton's response was to urge the committee not to...
  • Bombshell: White House Covers Up Ambassador's Murder, Were Warned of Attacks Months in Advance

    We know the Obama administration has been actively engaged in a cover-up as to why the U.S. consulate in Benghazi came under attack on September 11th, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other diplomats. How else to explain the weeks-long campaign to convince people that the attacks were not terrorism. Now we're finding out more details as to why they may have engaged in such a wide-ranging cover-up. But the real smoking gun is whether the Obama administration was warned in advance that al-Qaeda was planning an attack. A number of Israeli newspapers have suggested that Washington was warned as...

    They're normally just so obedient. But the Obama administration's lies are obvious, and the cover up is becoming more scandalous on a daily basis. Via the Washington Examiner: Senate Democrats joined Republicans Thursday in questioning the Obama administration's handling of the fatal Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya and why the administration refused for days to acknowledge that it was a terrorist attack linked to al Qaeda. The Senate Foreign Relations Committee, chaired by Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., circulated a bipartisan letter addressed to Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, asking for an "accounting of the attacks...
  • Obama Provides Free Parking For Ahmadinejad's 'Iran Air' Plane

    09/26/2012 1:13:12 PM PDT · by rustyweiss74 · 33 replies
    It's a Presidential love triangle gone awry. While Obama has openly dumped one of our most important ally's in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for an appearance with the ladies of The View, he has also been showering Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with gifts - such as free parking for his Boeing 747 in Washington. The plane, named "Iran Air", exchanged fleeting glances with the President's plane. Via the Washington Post: Free parking is hard to find in Washington — but not, apparently, for the Boeing 747 that ferried Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to this week’s United Nations General Assembly gathering in...

    There are reports tonight that a radical left-wing organization is responsible for helping to free a former detainee at Guantanamo Bay named Abu Sufian bin Qumu. Bin Qumu has been cited by multiple sources at Fox News as at least being involved with, and possibly playing the lead role in the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Those attacks resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American diplomats. Michelle Malkin has revealed that the Center for Constitutional Rights represented Qumu and helped lead the charge in freeing him back in 2007. President Emeritus...
  • Top 5 Reasons Romney Would Beat Obama in a Fistfight

    At first blush, this might seem like a gratuitous post. A post designed to lure in readers with its over the top rhetoric and a forced analysis of a ridiculous and fictitious scenario. A sensationalizing of the campaign battle by literally determining who could win a knock down, drag 'em out fight. And you'd be right. (We need readers) But it's also a response to a recent poll conducted by the Yahoo!/Esquire Langer group in which, for some reason they decided to ask likely voters which of the two candidates would win in a fistfight. It wasn't even a close...
  • United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand Accused of Filing False Tax Return

    Citing what they call an "impossible transaction" the campaign team for Wendy Long sent out a press release today accusing United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of filing a false tax return in 2010. Here is a copy of the press release: A cursory review of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's taxes indicates a transaction that was impossible. But the New York Times refused to even examine the issue. U.S. Senate candidate Wendy Long said, "Two things stand out here: we have a tax code that even a U.S. Senator can't get right and a liberal media goliath that is playing one side...

    Earlier this morning, we alerted you to a report that the Democrat Party Chair from California, John Burton, compared Paul Ryan and the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. From the Chronicle (who will be posting audio shortly): Greetings from the California delegation breakfast at the DNC where before he had a cup of coffee Democratic Party Chair John Burton – much like his ol’ pal Guv Jerry Brown once did – just compared the Republicans to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, for “telling the big lie,” a reference to several falsehoods GOP VP nominee Paul Ryan recently told. “They lie...

    New tone alert... According to a just released report from the San Francisco Chronicle, California Democratic Party Chair John Burton compared Paul Ryan and the GOP to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels. Let's see how - or if - the media reports this outrageous comment. Had this been a Republican, you would have already heard about it, as opposed to having to read it here.

    Amidst a flooding crisis in Louisiana that has left thousands seeking help in emergency shelters and thousands more lined up seeking necessities, and in the midst of the longest period of sustained unemployment since World War II, with an administration that recently claimed the President has "a lot on his plate", so much so that he can't meet with his jobs council that hasn't convened since January, the over-worked President had time to release this - his recipe for making home-brewed beer. From the official White House website: Ed. Note: There's been a lot of buzz online recently about the...
