    But Kazantsev was no Miss Congeniality at Hofstra University, where she was expelled from her sorority last year for hazing new recruits. On her resume, Kazantsev lists that she was new member educator and recruitment committee president for the university's chapter of Alpha Phi, a position she reportedly shared with her best friend in the spring term of 2013. A source told Jezebel that Kazantsev and her friend made the pledges' lives 'a living hell' by calling them names, and berating them over physical flaws. The terrifying duo reportedly made the new members perform certain physical tasks to the point...

    Ithaca, N.Y. — Leaflets calling a conservative columnist for the Cornell Daily Sun a “Racist Rape Apologist” have been anonymously distributed around campus. Julius Kairey, a senior in the College of Arts & Sciences and author of a biweekly Sun column titled, “Always Right,” recently wrote a column about sexual assault that drew rebuttals. The circulated leaflets show a photo of Kairey. Under the photo, the words, “Daily Sun Columnist and Racist Rape Apologist” appear. No other text, no specifics supporting the allegations, are printed on the page.... The most recent Kairey column takes issue with a new California law...

    Not only did the broadcast networks spent more time on the People’s Climate March, than the March for Life, they portrayed it positively, ignoring all the radicalism promoted by participants.NBC “Nightly News,” ABC “World News Tonight” on Sept. 21 and CBS “This Morning” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Sept. 22 gave a combined 3 minutes and 27 seconds to the climate march.

Five defendants copped to knowingly hiring illegal aliens, siphoning off their earnings and forcing them to live in dingy boarding homes scattered across Suffolk County, according to court papers. The scheme skimmed a total of $2.6 million that was owed to the workers, court papers state.

    NEW YORK - Over three hundred thousand activists walked through Manhattan on Sunday, warning that climate change is destroying the Earth - in stride with demonstrators around the world who urged policymakers to take quick action. Starting along Central Park West, most came on foot, others with bicycles and walkers, and some even in wheelchairs. Many wore costumes and marched to drumbeats. One woman played the accordion. But their message was not entertaining: "We're going to lose our planet in the next generation if things continue this way," said Bert Garskof, 81, as a family member pushed his wheelchair through...

Cyclists are racing online to rage against speed demon Jason Marshall — and show their support for the tragic victim he mowed down in Central Park. As Jill Tarlov, 59, remained on life support from her massive head injuries at an Upper East Side hospital, cyclists took to blogs and Twitter to jeer Marshall for slamming his $4,000 racing bike into the Connecticut mother of two on Thursday at a West Drive intersection. Some insiders blasted Marshall as a triathlon-obsessed “Tridork,” and a “Fred,” both derogatory terms for Lycra-clad cyclists...

"I am totally for gun control in the U.S.," Neeson said in an interview with The Independent. "The population of America is roughly 300 million and there are 300 million guns in this country, which is terrifying." Neeson criticized the National Rifle Association's response to the 2012 shooting in Newton, Connecticut, which the actor summarized as, "If that teacher had been armed..." "It's crazy," Neeson said.

The system will go down at midnight and isn't expected to come back online until noon Sunday. It's being shut down so the state can switch to a new company to run the program. It will take at least 12 hours to do the switch. Medicaid benefits are on the same card, but they will not be affected by the change. Nearly a third of the city's residents rely on food stamps, according to U.S. Census data. Toni Maxwell,...

    A new report being released today by the Census Bureau finds that Manhattan has the highest level of income inequality in the United States. That is not entirely surprising, though it would also not have been surprising if it had been San Francisco or another progressive fiefdom. For all the rhetoric about wicked 1 percenters and inequality, progressivism is a luxury good, and progressive-dominated enclaves are generally pretty okay places to live if you have a fair amount of money, but sort of stink if you’re in the middle or at the lower end of the earnings curve. Because most...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is coming under sharp criticism for making decisions that may have undermined the effectiveness of his police department’s counter-terrorism operations. Thirteen years after the 9/11 attacks on Manhattan, prominent security experts say de Blasio has made fighting terrorism a lower priority in order to appease the communities that helped elect him. “A classic case of taking your eye off the ball at the worst possible time is Mayor de Blasio in New York,” said John Lehman, a former member of the 9/11 Commission. He said de Blasio is failing to take seriously enough...

The city, which helps pay her rent, wrote this summer to say she would have to downsize into a one-bedroom apartment or pay $240 more a month in rent. A public school aide, Ms. Robinson, 48, decided to stay in the apartment, in the Castle Hill neighborhood. But on an annual income of about $25,000, she is struggling, she said, and she does not know how long she can hang on. Moving to a one-bedroom apartment...

    Melvin E. Lowe, a New York political consultant, was found guilty yesterday of conspiring with State Senator John Sampson of Brooklyn (in photo) to defraud the New York Senate Campaign Committee out of $100,000. Sampson is under indictment on unrelated charges of embezzlement, obstruction of justice and making false statements to the FBI. He allegedly embezzled $440,000 from escrow accounts on foreclosed properties. Sampson and Lowe were caught up in an investigation prompted by NLPC's exposé of former State Senator Shirley Huntley, who was jailed for looting a nonprofit organization she founded, for which political allies had arranged to...

    Many Americans believe that the effort by Islamic militants to recruit young men and women from the United States and Western Europe to fight on behalf of fundamentalist Islam is a recent phenomenon. However, I have personally watched many troubled people be targeted by Islamic radicals since I was a child. My experience has given me an up-close and personal look at Americans who, whether they realize it or not, are offering aid and comfort to the enemy in cities and towns all across our country.

    ---SNIP--- The disturbing revelation comes just days before the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. A law enforcement source said Tuesday that if de Blasio does ­apply for clearance, he will have to endure an arduous vetting process that would include questions about his 1991 trip to Communist Cuba and support of the Marxist Sandinista regime during his visit to Nicaragua in the 1980s. “He would automatically be questioned about his visit to Cuba and his contacts with the Sandin­istas. Maybe he didn’t apply [for clearance] because he doesn’t want to go through that,”...

    People upset that a grandmother participating in drone protests was sentenced to a year in jail have fired off a series of angry e-mails directed at the judge who sent her to jail. Several of the notes to DeWitt Town Judge David S. Gideon contained four-letter words, and one made anti-Semitic references against the judge who is Jewish. Another called him a "fascist." "Would you please take early retirement soon and move to the country of your forebears?" reads one e-mail. Another e-mail reads "Please convey to the Dishonorable David S. Gideon that he should go f--- himself for abusing...
  • Can solar energy work in snowy Syracuse? Yes, with lots of taxpayer help

    "The bottom line is solar works here," said Pete Wirth, whose 18 solar panels supply all of his Fayetteville home's electrical power. "It would probably work better if you had no cloudy days, but solar works perfectly fine in Central New York." The only way solar works here, or just about anywhere, is with heavy government subsidies. Wirth's system cost $24,000 when it was installed two years ago, but after tax credits and rebates, he paid about $6,200. That means taxpayers pick up about 75 percent of the cost of solar systems.

    On Saturday I sent the letter below to Archbishop Vigano with regard to the statment Cardinal Dolan of New York gave in support of a Gay Rights Group being included in the 2015 New York St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
