    Two Buffalo police officers have been suspended without pay following an incident caught on camera, showing them shoving an elderly man, causing him to stumble backward and fall, injuring his head. The video shows the 75-year-old man approaching officers during a tense protest in Niagara Square and the situation escalating quickly, as the officers shoved the man, who stumbled backward and fell. The graphic video shows the elderly man lying on the ground with blood gushing from what appeared to be his right ear:

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio revealed Friday a 75 percent spike in coronavirus hospitalizations since a day earlier but rejected the suggestion that the spread could have been caused by massive protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd. "I would be surprised if that's what's causing it," de Blasio said Friday of the sustained demonstrations that have broken out in the Big Apple and cities throughout the world. "I think we're much more likely in the next week [or] 10 days to see a manifestation, if there is one." Still, de Blasio urged all demonstrators...

    Racism should be blamed if George Floyd protests cause a spike in coronavirus cases, New York City council member Mark Levine said on Wednesday. “Let’s be clear about something: if there is a spike in coronavirus cases in the next two weeks, don’t blame the protesters. Blame racism,” Levine, who is the head of the city council’s health committee, wrote on Twitter. “And let’s remember that the police are increasing COVID risk by: using tear gas; herding demonstrators into tight spaces; putting people in crowded jails.”

    Elon Musk confronts Jeff Bezos: Bezos blinks. – Alex Berenson is a former New York Times reporter who has done yeoman’s work on Twitter exposing all the massive false information that has been spread about the Wuhan Virus by the government and the corrupt news media. His information has been quoted here many times over the past few months. Berenson has just published a new book exposing these merchants of disinformation, titled “Unreported Truths About COVID-19 and Lockdowns”: Early yesterday, Amazon blocked Berenson’s book from being marketed on its site, citing non-existent “standards” that it does not apply anywhere else....

    Three years ago, the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States was commemorated by a concert featuring Lee Greenwood and Jon Voight, a parade, three official inaugural balls, massive women’s marches, the writing of a fishy e-mail to herself by outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice, and the January 17 publication of David Horowitz’s Big Agenda: President Trump’s Plan to Save America. The book, a comprehensive account and vigorous vindication of Trump’s platform, became a New York Times bestseller. Now, with the 2020 elections approaching, Horowitz has published a follow-up book entitled Blitz: Trump Will Smash the Left...

    De Blasio Probably Doesn’t Even Like de BlasioAfter a couple of conversations with comedian friends of mine from New York this week I am more mystified than ever as to how Bill de Blasio got re-elected. One of my friends is conservative, the other liberal, and both hate de Blasio with a white-hot passion. When Mayor Moron was first elected almost everyone I know who is well-versed in New York City politics was convinced that he would be a one-term wonder. As he went about dismantling twenty years of progress in the city it seemed almost certain that he would...

    New York City may have reached a major milestone in its battle against coronavirus as no new deaths were reported between Tuesday and Wednesday. According to preliminary data from the city's health department, zero additional deaths were confirmed within a 24-hour period between those two days. Officials cautioned that it's still possible that the number could be upgraded due to lag times in reporting, and because the three probable coronavirus deaths during that period are still under investigation.

    New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has no love for the NYPD. In 2017 “several hundred cops” turned their backs in protest as Mayor de Blasio delivered a eulogy for slain Officer Miosotis Familia. During the presidential debates in 2019 De Blasio attacked the NYPD again and accused police officers of racism. But De Blasio does appreciate the NYPD for one thing… The New York City Mayor had police help his daughter move in the city. This week Chiara de Blasio was arrested at the mass protests on Saturday night. The 25-year-old was reportedly blocking traffic and refused to...

    New York City’s Comptroller Scott M. Stringer sent a letter Thursday to the city’s Mayor Bill de Blasio asking him to cut $1.1 billion of funding to the New York Police Department over the next four years saying the funding to “scale down” the police force. Moreover, he said the money needs to be diverted “toward vulnerable communities most impacted by police violence and structural racism.” “These are trying times for all New Yorkers, but especially for communities of color,” he wrote in the letter. “Across the boroughs, as across the nation, protesters have gathered to mourn and demand justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio was drowned out by booing at a memorial for George Floyd in Brooklyn on Thursday, as the preacher who introduced him pleaded with attendees to show “respect.” “Let us welcome with respect the mayor of New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio and first lady Chirlane McCray,” Rev. Kevin McCall said. Loud booing then broke out as the mayor took the stage, forcing McCall to add: “Again, again, again, we said respect! We said respect! Say it with me, respect!”

    Someone is organizing criminals and vandals to loot and destroy cities but the corporate media don’t seem all that interested in getting to the bottom of it. In fact, Democrats and their allies in the press have been actively engaging in misdirection, lamely accusing white supremacists of being behind the mayhem plaguing “peaceful protests.” The USA is currently in a state of turmoil. Violent protests have been going on for some days. The incidents of looting have been reported multiple times but this loot was a bit unusual. The video shows a group of masked men hopping out of two...
  • NYPD finds stash of bricks, rocks across NYC

    The NYPD released video of more evidence that they believe proves the looters who have caused damage across the city all week are well-organized. Officials said they found bricks and rocks hidden in strategic places on street corners in Brooklyn and Queens. The boxes were not in the vicinity of any protests, but the NYPD believes they were to be picked up to be used at a future protest. Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said bricks were recently stolen from a construction site in Manhattan, and police are looking into if that burglary is connected.

    Just a couple of days ago, NASA helped spot a new batch of sunspots and the flares arcing above them. In a new blog post, NASA explains that the flares weren’t particularly powerful and didn’t register with NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center, but NASA’s own hardware was able to detect them. The space agency suggests that the sunspots and flares could be an indication that the star is becoming more active yet again. The Sun typically runs on cycles that last around 11 years on average. During times of high activity, called the solar maximum, sunspots and flares are frequent....

    New York (CNN Business) Staffers at The New York Times expressed dismay Wednesday over the newspaper's decision to publish an op-ed written by Republican Sen. Tom Cotton that called for the U.S. military to be deployed in cities across the country to help restore order. The op-ed was published in The Times opinion section, but staffers from both opinion and the newsroom - which operate separate from one another - publicly dissented. A parade of Times journalists tweeted a screen shot showing the headline of Cotton's piece, "Send In the Troops," with the accompanying words: "Running this puts Black @NYTimes...

    Since 1979, when crime was at its pinnacle across New York City, Curtis Sliwa, 66, has led a group of volunteers known as the "Guardian Angels" in signature red jackets who roam lawless pockets and aid those in need. But Tuesday night, amid the ongoing unrest gripping much of the nation following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, was one of the most chaotic and confronting scenes he has ever encountered, he said. "Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, we have mostly been in Chinatown to stop any hate crimes against Asians," Sliwa told Fox News. "But on Tuesday night, we...

    How deadly is COVID-19? It’s difficult to say with certainty, because there’s so much we don’t know. We don’t know how many people had the virus or have it now, how many people had mild symptoms or none at all, how many people got sick but didn’t show up at hospitals. Death certificates tell us with certainty that someone has died, but they often don’t provide certainty about the cause of death. It is extremely rare for people who are otherwise healthy to die of COVID-19. Most of the people who die with COVID-19 — 98 percent in one study...

    Bill de Blasio’s mayoralty died Wednesday, finally succumbing to lengthy, multiple comorbidities of laziness, entitlement, delusions of grandeur and an inability to live in reality. He will be remembered as the worst mayor ever to govern New York City. Despite a long track record of failures — from actively contributing to a crumbling educational system and a staggering increase in homelessness, not to mention a laughably quixotic run for president of the United States — it was de Blasio’s surrender of New York City to looters, rioters, vandals and criminals who brazenly, repeatedly assaulted police officers that killed off his...

    A former high-level Obama administration intelligence official has guaranteed the $250,000 bail for the New York City lawyer who allegedly firebombed an unoccupied NYPD police cruiser early Saturday, calling the suspect her "best friend," Fox News has confirmed. The Washington Free Beacon first reported that Salmah Rizvi, who served in the Defense Department and State Department during the Obama administration, went to bat for Urooj Rahman, who was arrested this weekend alongside Pryor Cashman associate Colinford Mattis. Rizvi, an associate at the law firm Ropes & Gray, told the court: "Urooj Rahman is my best friend and I am an...

    Two police officers were shot and another was stabbed in Brooklyn on Wednesday night during a confrontation with a knife-wielding suspect, police said, according to multiple reports. Police said one officer was shot in the arm and the other struck in the finger by gunfire. They were rushed to Kings County Hospital and are expected to survive, according to the New York Post. The suspect was taken into custody after he was shot several times by the officers, police added. Brooklyn resident Jean Jones told The Post, “I just heard gunshots, at least 16 if I was being conservative."
