  • Store owner refuses to sell guns to Muslims

    WNYT ^ | 7/31/15 | Samantha DiMascio
    ST. JOHNSVILLE - It's a powerful, but polarizing point of view. The owner of J.J.'s Sporting Goods announced he will no longer sell guns to Muslims. The decision is getting mixed reaction both on social media and within the small, tight-knit community of St. Johnsville. John Swartz says after the attack at the recruiting station in Tennessee, he can't in good conscience sell guns to Muslims. Swartz said his logic mainly roots from fear of not being able to tell the difference between a radical Muslim and a law abiding citizen. He said that leaves him with little choice, but...

    A new National Journal survey of “Republican insiders” finds that 57 percent of these political professionals think Donald Trump will bow out of the Presidential race before the Iowa Caucuses. This survey probably says more about the state of the Republican political class than anything about the 2016 race or Republican voters. Interestingly, 65 percent of “Democrat insiders” believe Trump will compete in the Iowa Caucuses in February next year. The survey results could easily be dismissed as both groups answering what they hope will happen. Some Republican campaign professionals offered comments beyond the question: “No meteor or political candidate...

    Jeb Bush and his aides had envisioned a big, inclusive, high-minded speech about race on Friday in his home state of Florida, a chance to bring his message of colorblind opportunity to a prestigious group of African-American leaders. In a rare gesture of bipartisanship, Mr. Bush even planned to warmly quote President Obama, usually the subject of his derision. Then Hillary Rodham Clinton stomped all over those plans. In a biting pre-emptive attack delivered as Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, waited backstage here at the annual convention of the National Urban League, Mrs. Clinton portrayed him as a hypocrite...

    Under a dark photograph showing hypodermic needles and drug paraphernalia, the newspaper advertisement warned in dire terms that violent criminals were coming to town. “Are these the new neighbors we want?” the paid message asked. “The St. Regis Mohawk Indian record of criminal activity is well documented.” The ad, part of an advocacy campaign meant to stop a casino from being built in New York’s Catskill region, drew an indignant response from the tribe, which called it a naked appeal to racism. The incendiary ads, which ran in upstate newspapers in February 2000, were the work of the New York...

    The man accused of killing two Good Samaritans who tried to help him on a Montana roadside was encountered by immigration authorities earlier this year after a burglary arrest, but was unable to be deported because he had already gotten legal status, federal authorities said this week. Mr. Deniz is Mexican, and the Obama administration deems him a legal permanent resident who entered the country legally on May 31, 2013 — though they didn’t say how he earned that status initially. Indeed, just a month ago Mr. Deniz was arrested by police in Worland, Wyo., on burglary charges. U.S. Immigration...

I offer an apology on behalf of so many Catholics who are outraged by the dirty politics of Cardinal Dolan.

    It was so hot Wednesday that City Hall issued a 24-hour heat advisory warning people to stay indoors — but officials also cautioned against blasting the A/C. New Yorkers should keep their air conditioners at 78 degrees to help reduce the risk of blackouts, Mayor de Blasio said. “If the air conditioning is set at 78 degrees, people are safe and they will be able to deal with the hot temperatures,” he said. A 75-degree setting uses 18% more electricity, and a 72-degree setting uses 39% more, he said. The city’s fragile power grid was already showing signs of strain...

Clinton was also asked about her greatest weakness. Here’s what she said: Got that? Clinton’s biggest fault is her inability to deal with you idiots who can’t comprehend why...

Respondents to the automated telephone survey were given a choice of the top 10 candidates as recently determined by a Politico story, pollster Mike Noble told The Arizona Republic. In that poll, recently announced candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich barely missed the cut and was not included in the survey. Trump was the favorite of 26.5 percent. He was followed by Wisconsin Gov.

    An Indian waiter in an Indian restaurant — imagine that!

Following an inquiry by The Post, the city’s Commission on Human Rights — which cited the eatery two years ago — said it’s assessing its practices. Commission staffers have been trawling Craigslist to ensnare unwary restaurant owners who violate the law for things like seeking a “waitress” instead of a “wait-person.” That’s gender discrimination by the city’s reckoning and could lead to a four-figure fine.

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. – About 85 protesters filled the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood in Syracuse today for an anti-abortion rally fueled by recent undercover videos about the sale of fetal tissue from abortions. Protesters demanded that Congress eliminate taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and investigate the organization for possible violation of federal law against selling fetal tissue for profit. The protest in Syracuse, one of dozens slated for today around the nation, drew participants from as far away as Yonkers. But many were local protesters who are regulars on the sidewalk at 1120 E. Genesee St., having prayed and...

    Jon Stewart — the man who loves to be called a nonpartisan, a scourge of cant, an honest soul who follows the truth wherever it leads — has been secretly taking trips to the White House to receive intense one-on-one lobbying from President Obama. Moreover, Politico reported Tuesday, “Daily Show” staffers routinely call up the White House to get the administration’s input. Austan Goolsbee, a former top economic adviser to the president, frequently e-mailed with his college classmate Scott Bodow, a “Daily Show” executive producer, to offer spin. Obama flunky David Axelrod often reached out directly to Stewart.

    ISIS doesn’t stand a chance against da Bronx! A single dad from Sound View credits his hard-scrabble New York upbringing with inspiring him to fight against terrorists in Syria. Now, instead of overhead rumblings of the No. 6 train, Robert Rose Jr., 25, is used to the sounds of war while on his second tour in the city of Hasakah, where he’s fighting with the Kurdish militia group “Lions of Rojava.”

    Hillary Clinton put part of Bergdorf Goodman on lockdown on Friday to get a $600 haircut at the swanky John Barrett Salon. Clinton, with a huge entourage in tow, was spotted being ushered through a side entrance of the Fifth Avenue store on Friday. A source said, “Staff closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so Hillary could come in privately to get her hair done. An elevator bank was shut down so she could ride up alone, and then she was styled in a private area of the salon.

    NEW YORK (AP) — Since the beginning of June, Donald Trump has received more coverage on the broadcast network evening newscasts than all of the other candidates for president combined, with his estranged former partners at NBC giving him the most attention. The statistics offered by Andrew Tyndall, a consultant who studies the content of evening newscasts, is one snapshot of how Trump has seized the media's attention to the detriment of his rivals. The ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts spent 114 minutes on campaign coverage from the beginning of June through the end of last week, and Trump...

    Summary: The media attack Donald Trump for telling the truth about America’s problems. Yet they ignore the outrageous and tragic scandals of Obama and Hillary, including their embrace of Islamic terrorists, use of IRS against political enemies, and decimation of the American economy. THE TIME FOR CITIZENS TO SPEAK UP IS NOW! Over the last few weeks, the bought-and-paid-for media have been presenting Donald Trump and his outspoken, truthful comments as outrageous. These “Trumped-up” charges are ridiculous. All the Donald has done is point out what mostly everyone knows: Emperor Barack has no clothes. (Spare us the thought.) Indeed, Trump...
