    President Trump is expected to attend a fundraiser on Friday in the Hamptons hosted by the chairman of Nathan's Hot Dogs, Bloomberg reports. Howard Lorber, who oversees the hot dog empire and a Manhattan real estate firm, will host a fundraiser to benefit Trump's reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC), sources told the outlet. Bloomberg reported that Trump will attend a roundtable with supporters and a luncheon at Lorber's home in Southampton, which is roughly 90 miles from Manhattan. Trump tapped Lorber in August 2016 to serve as an economic adviser to his presidential campaign. The two men...

    Arca Max ^ | August 9, 2018 | Susan Estrich, Dukakis Campaign Manager
    Media outlets this week are all over a new Pew study that finds, the headlines promise, that President Trump's support is not quite as broad and not quite as happy as his stunningly stable approval rating might suggest. But what's striking from the numbers, at least as far as I can see, is not how much support Trump has lost but how, given the daily barrage of tweets and countertweets; ugly chants and ugly corruption trials (his campaign chairman); intense criticism in the media; all-out war in Congress; and foreign policy flubs and domestic failures, much remains firm, and how...

    The woman known as the "Manhattan Madam" for once running a high-end prostitution ring in New York City says she was bullied by Robert Mueller's team when she was forced to testify in front of a grand jury in connection with the Russia investigation. Kristin Davis said she was forced to answer leading questions on the character of her longtime friend and colleague Roger Stone. "I left there feeling very sick to my stomach," Davis said in an interview on Fox 5's Good Day New York.

    Shortened title. Full title: A Power Company Is Suing New York After The State Shut Down A Nearly $1 Billion Plant Without Warning Competitive Power Ventures (CPV) is suing New York after the state refused to renew an air permit for one of the company’s natural gas power plants, shutting down the plant four days before it was scheduled to open. CPV filed the suit against the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) challenging the state’s decision to not renew the $900 million plant’s air permit in an Aug. 1 letter, according to the American Petroleum Institute (API)....

    “ICE is the only criminal investigative agency, the only enforcement agency in the United States, that has a bed quota. So ICE is required to fill 34,000 beds with detainees every single night and that number has only been increasing since 2009.” — in an interview with the Intercepted podcast, May 30 As our friends at PolitiFact documented, this is an urban legend. There is language in the 2016 appropriations bill that requires ICE to have 34,000 beds available — ICE “shall maintain a level of not less than 34,000 detention beds through September 30, 2016” — but it is...

    BEIJING — China’s leaders have sought to project confidence in the face of President Trump’s tariffs and trade threats, but as it becomes clear a protracted trade war with the United States may be unavoidable, there are growing signs of unease inside the Communist political establishment. In recent days, officials from the Commerce Ministry, the police and other agencies have summoned executives from exporters to ask about plans to lay off workers or shift supply chains to other countries. With stocks slumping into bear territory and the currency dropping 9 percent against the dollar since mid-April, censors have been deleting...

    Who’s Afraid of Nancy Pelosi? By Paul Krugman Opinion Columnist Aug. 13, 2018 Normally, a party that gives away $2 trillion without worrying about where the money will come from can buy itself at least a few votes. But Donald Trump’s tax cut remains remarkably unpopular, and Republicans barely mention it on the campaign trail — in fact, Democrats are running against the tax cut more than Republicans are running on it. Nor are Republicans talking much about Trump’s trade war, which also remains unpopular. What, then, does the G.O.P. have to run on? It can hype the supposed menace...

    A restaurant chain is facing a lawsuit regarding a Harlem restaurant staff's refusal to serve a group of transgender woman and a gender nonconforming person. Deja Smith, Daniele Marino, Jonovia Chase, Jahmila Adderley and Valerie Spencer claim they were told the Texas Burgers & Chicken on Frederick Douglass Boulevard and West 116th Street was out of chicken when they attempted to order there on May 28, but a customer directly behind them had his order taken, according to multiple reports. A video of the discriminatory behavior went viral in May after it was posted to Instagram by "Orange is the...

    Ho-Hum....Trump already has had four major campaign rallies with massive attendees in August and, has another "Blockbuster" political rally set for August 21, 2018 in West Virginia. This does not include all the various POTUS meetings & little rallies as required of POTUS routine. Democrat leaders, Schumer & Pelosi have heralded the coming vigorous Mid-Term, 2018 campaign activity that Obama will offer forthcoming. Sadly...we all will be waiting a bit longer for Obama to make an open public appearance in a massive Democrat political rally. Count August out of the picture for serious campaign activity from either Obama. The Obamas...

And also like catcalling, for some reason they feel entitled to one.”Shapiro responded to that by saying, among other things:“Have you met me? Have you seen me? Do I seem like the kind of guy...

    One of the nation's most powerful labor unions is rallying supporters to oppose Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. On Friday, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) began circulating a petition online for its allies to send to their home state lawmakers. The union letter calls Kavanaugh a "narrow-minded extremist" and accuses the D.C. Circuit Court judge of undermining workers' rights and opposing abortion. "Kavanaugh is a narrow-minded extremist who will chip away at our rights in the workplace, the doctor's office and the ballot box," the letter says. "If Kavanaugh is confirmed he...

    Not two hours after New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio gave a ringing defense of freedom of the press, his goons hauled away a reporter for the New York Post who had dared ask him a question in public. On a national TV show Sunday morning, DeBlasio said  “I believe in a free, strong media with diverse views — I’ll defend it with all I’ve got.” Apparently, he doesn't have much to defend it with. Just two hours later, after de Blasio cut a ribbon to kick off the parade and was posing for photos near West 37th Street and Sixth...

    Rep. Grace Meng is sponsoring a resolution that would extend the right to vote to U.S. citizens 16 years of age or older. The New York Democrat’s resolution, introduced earlier this month, would repeal the 26th Amendment of the Constitution, which currently states the right to vote for citizens who are 18 years of age or older "shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State." If the resolution is passed, the amendment would instead say the right to vote for citizens who are 16 years of age or older "shall not be denied or...

    Mayor de Blasio is a such a big believer in the free press that he let two bodyguards physically remove a credentialed Post reporter who had the temerity to ask him a question in public on Sunday. The unusual muzzling unfolded at the start of the annual Dominican Day Parade in Manhattan, where the reporter sought de Blasio’s reaction to The Post’s front page story about his administration’s many meetings with lobbyists.

    Who could have predicted back in 1928 that Al Smith's successor as governor of New York would be explaining his advancement of legislation by his "solidarity" with the pope?  Back then, poor Governor Smith was defeated in his run for president in part by anti-Catholic fears that he represented a "Romish Peril," not least by way of a transatlantic tunnel between Washington and the Vatican.  A vote for Al Smith would put America under the dictatorship of the pope. So when Governor Andrew Cuomo, literally on the same day Pope Francis declared that the death penalty is "inadmissible" in all cases, introduced...
