    The Washington Times ^ | August 25, 2016 | Andrea Noble
    The largest union representing New York City police officers has awarded its man of the year honor to an outspoken black conservative and supporter of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, known for his criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as President Obama, was named Man of the Year by the New York Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association. Annual honors in the past have often gone to elected leaders or lawmen with New York ties — such as the 2015 award to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo or to former New York Police Department Commissioner...

    An crazed woman trying to sell crickets and worms on a D train suddenly threw them all over the crowded car, sending it into chaos during the evening commute. The women walked into the train car at about 6 p.m. on Wednesday and and made a pitch to passengers to try to get them to buy the chirping insects and wrigglers. A group of teenagers pushed her, prompting her to freak out and toss the box of pests into the air, said witnesses.

    The State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY-Binghamton) is offering a training class titled “StopWhitePeople2k16,” to instruct residential assistants (RAs) on how to deal with “uneducated” people who don’t believe in ideas like white privilege. The class is just one of several available to RAs at the school, and was discovered by the Binghamton Review, a student newspaper. Residential assistants are students who agree to assist with overseeing and monitoring residential life in return for receiving a free room from the school. Apparently, though, Binghamton RAs also have the responsibility of “stopping” white people. “The premise of this session...

    At an emotional funeral service for a New York City imam and his assistant who were gunned down on a Queens street, one friend of the victims took the microphone and demanded that the city install security cameras outside mosques citywide to help protect Muslims from harassment or violence. “Each street corner should have security cameras around our places of worship,” said Anwar Hussein Khan, a teacher. But in the days following that impassioned plea, the city’s Muslim community has since backed away from that request. Muslim activists and civil liberties groups here have spent years opposing police surveillance of...

    Donald Trump is a very successful businessman. He knows how to generate jobs and prosperity for those he employs. Clearly he is the person we want to guide our economy in the future. Trump has a record of success. Hillary Clinton has a record of economic failure and lies. Her tenure as a New York State United States Senator is dismal. In 2000 when Clinton was running for Senate she made a fake “listening tour” of upstate New York a depressed area that has seen more than its share of decay and decline over the past thirty years.

    New York’s Hispanic voters may have a secret soft spot for Donald Trump. A new poll pegs support for Trump at 40 percent among Latino registered voters in the Empire State. The results would be a major break from recent electoral history. Barack Obama took 89 percent of that demographic in his 2012 victory. And, in a sign of continued electoral turmoil, 20 percent of registered Democrats plan to vote for Trump — while 21 percent of registered Republicans say they will go for Hillary Clinton. Obama held on to 95 percent of New York’s Democrats in the last election....

    In her presidential bid, Hillary Clinton has made job creation a centerpiece of her platform, casting herself as a pragmatist who would inspire “the biggest investment in new, good-paying jobs since World War II.’’ Her argument that she would put more Americans to work has focused on her time in the Senate, when she took on the mission of creating jobs in chronically depressed Upstate New York. As her husband, former president Bill Clinton, put it recently, she became the region’s “de facto economic development officer.” But nearly eight years after Clinton’s Senate exit, there is little evidence that her...

The Commission looks forward to working with Hofstra once again.”
