    As the political world anxiously awaited the results of special counsel Robert Mueller’s just-concluded 22-month investigation, the president’s supporters gathered on Saturday near Donald Trump’s Fifth Avenue tower, perhaps prematurely celebrating that the yet-to-be-released report discovered no wrongdoing on the president’s part. “No collusion!” said Hope Burns, who came from New Jersey with her husband and adult son, when asked about what she expected Mueller had found. What was behind all the investigating? “The left is pushing it. The media is pushing it,” she said.(snip) Joseph McGowan, a retiree who lives in Port Jefferson, guessed the Mueller probe would be...

    A new poll shows a third of New York residents plan to move because they can't afford to stay. Businesses that are closing cited "economic" reasons for their decision. They represent a wide array of industries including a biotech company, investment bank, internet services, commercial printer, and a Walmart online ordering processor. New York governor Andrew Cuomo (D.), who is still reeling from the loss of Amazon, told CBS local news on Wednesday he was "sick to my stomach" and it was the "greatest tragedy I have seen since I've been in government." Amazon's deal would have provided $27 billion...

    In the past week, he was spotted at Polo Bar Friday evening, Saks Fifth Avenue’s new L’Avenue Saturday night, and at the Regency Bar & Grill for a power breakfast on Tuesday. “He used to sit in the back room because he had a lot of private conversations,” according to a Regency waiter. “But now he sits in the main room.” While New York City liberals may have despised Cohen when he worked for the president, he’s enjoying new popularity since his congressional testimony. “People come up and hug him,” said a friend. “New Yorkers see him as someone in...

    The New York City Police Department is asking for the public’s help in identifying the man who attacked an elderly woman on a subway car in the Bronx in the early hours of March 10. Video of the attack surfaced on Thursday that not only showed the woman being repeatedly kicked in the head and body but also showed that no one came to her aid, instead other riders pulled out their smartphones and filmed the attack.

    In the wake of the college admissions scandal where meritocracy was bypassed by the wealthy and connected, New York City leftists Bill de Blasio and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are demanding an end to the strict meritocracy governing admission to the crown jewels of public education, Bronx High School of Science and Stuyvesant High. Yesterday, the freshman congresswoman tweeted out her outrage at strict meritocracy:   68% of all NYC public school students are Black or Latino. To only have 7 Black students accepted into Stuyvesant (a *public* high school) tells us that this is a system failure. Education inequity is...

    The elected official getting most of the blame for Amazon’s decision not to open a new headquarters in Queens is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, according to a poll released Monday. The Siena College poll asked New York state voters who was the “hero”, “villain” or “role player” in the Amazon debacle and Ocasio-Cortez led the pack. Thirty-eight percent identified the freshman congresswoman as the biggest villain while only 12 percent called her a hero. By comparison, 34 percent called local activists the chief villain; 29 percent Mayor de Blasio; 28 percent Gov. Cuomo; 26 percent Amazon itself; 21 percent the state...
  • Stop-and-frisk is now about protecting civil rights

    NY Post ^ | 3/17/19
    Stop-and-frisk is down 98 percent from its peak, but the New York Civil Liberties Union can’t stop complaining. In a new report, the civil rights group complains that the 12,000 stops in 2017 — down from nearly 700,000 in 2011 — still disproportionately involved black and Hispanic males. It claims that young minorities are targeted in white neighborhoods (Tribeca, Greenwich Village), not just high-crime majority-black and Latino precincts in The Bronx and Brooklyn. This is just nuts, because stops these days overwhelmingly come only on the basis of a civilian complaint or seriously suspicious behavior by the individual who’s stopped....

    A mystery pooper has turned Broadway into the Great Wipe Way, laying waste to audition rooms by using them as a personal potty — and revolting thespians. The stealthy stink bomber struck during tryouts for the “Magic Mike” musical at Pearl Studios at 500 Eighth Ave. on Feb. 26, and again on March 6 at the Ripley-Grier space down the block. “There was a lot of disbelief,” said actress Eunice Bae of the first incident, when she saw a show rep slip on something on the floor. “She stopped and said, ‘Oh, I just stepped in s–t.’ We all laughed...

    In the wake of the mass shooting in New Zealand, the Muslim community came together Friday in a sign of strength and resilience. 168th Street from Highland Avenue to Gothic Drive in Jamaica Hills was co-named JMC Way for the Jamaica Muslim Center. Members gathered in front of the mosque for the unveiling ceremony. Councilman Rory Lancman said the renaming is a sign that the Muslim community is a part of the New York City family.

    Supporting immigration is the theme of this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Manhattan, a march up Fifth Avenue that passes President Donald Trump’s namesake tower, near 56th Street, along the route. Five Latino immigrants will help lead the 257-year-old parade by marching with Grand Marshal Brian O’Dwyer, an activist and immigration lawyer — bookended by fellow marchers from the New York National Guard’s Fighting 69th and the NYPD delegation, according to parade committee spokesman Bob Liff.

    Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez should get her own reality TV show. It would be a comedy, of course, with cameras following her around to record a typical day in the life of the face of the Democratic party. Those cameras would record some of the most illogical, incoherent, idiotic, and just plain weird statements from a woman whose worldview has been shaped by socialism. That she's an ignoramus with a primary school understanding of most issues is a bonus. Yesterday, Ocasio-Cortez "grilled" the chairman of Wells Fargo, Timothy Sloan, asking him a series of bizarre questions about "caging migrant children" and...

    A subway poster advertising a commemorative book on Ruth Bader Ginsburg was defaced with anti-Semitic and other slurs. The NYPD's hate crimes unit is investigating slur-ridden "DIE" graffiti scrawled on a Brooklyn subway station poster of Ruth Bader Ginsburg after a rider flagged it on Twitter Tuesday. "What is going to be done about this?" the rider captioned in her tweet, tagging the mayor's office, the MTA and NYPD among other accounts. She said it was spotted at the Nassau Avenue G train stop. "DIE" in all capital letters is scrawled in black marker across Ginsburg's forehead on the poster;...

    Anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled on a sign featuring Ruth Bader Ginsburg at a subway station in Brooklyn earlier this week. The words “Die Jew Bitch” and a swastika were first spotted scribbled in black marker over the face of RBG on Tuesday on an ad pushing a new book about the Supreme Court justice at the Nassau Avenue subway stop on the G line. The vandalism was reported to the NYPD on Wednesday morning via social media. Responding on Twitter, NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea called the incident “abhorrent.” “As always, NYC has no place for hate,” Shea said.

    Last month, at John Jay College in New York City, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the state’s new “red flag” gun law, which will make it easier for officials to confiscate guns from people deemed an “extreme risk” to themselves or others. Joining Cuomo was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who described the law as imperative to “the survival of our children.” Cuomo said that when it comes to gun violence, “something has to be done because we are literally losing human life.” Cuomo and Pelosi invoked mass shootings to explain why the red-flag law is necessary. But mass shootings on the...

    Ready to go back to the 'Shattered' era, New York? The old 'drop dead' epoch and 'fun city' times? Looks like that's what's on the cards, based on this New York Post report, warning that the socialist-led city is in dire danger of bankruptcy if there's an economic downturn: New York City is careening closer to all-out financial bankruptcy for the first time since Mayor Abraham Beame ran the city more than 40 years ago, experts say. As tax-fleeced businesses and individuals flee en masse, and city public spending surges into the stratosphere, financial analysts say Gotham is perilously...

    The FDNY has finally fired its alleged woman-beater smoke-eater. Brooklyn firefighter Clyde Phillips was axed Wednesday after his third arrest stemming from charges of domestic violence, The Post has learned. Phillips was charged on Feb. 23 in Caldwell, NJ with contempt for violating a New York City restraining order put in place after a 2018 attack on an ex-girlfriend, said Katherine Carter, spokeswoman for the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office. Carter said a violation could include anything from phoning or texting to physical contact, but she would not elaborate. The FDNY suspended Phillips on Feb. 27, then fired him on March...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The Queens Center Mall erupted into chaos Friday afternoon after police say a rapper’s book signing spiraled out of control. Authorities say Bronx-born rapper “A Boogie wit da Hoodie” – whose real name is Julius Dubose – was scheduled to appear inside the mall’s Puma store at 5:30 p.m. Video posted to social media showed people getting into fist fights and looting stores, as sheer chaos broke out around 2:30 p.m. “They grabbed the chairs and broke it on his head, the poor guy was bleeding,” witness Maria Moncada said. “It was bad.”

Investigators say the woman, who is black, first sprayed multiple people, all of whom are white, with an unknown chemical substance in several unprovoked attacks near subway stations in Harlem and the Upper West Side on Friday.

    A drug-smuggling cop who helped run a heroin-trafficking ring and tried to squirm her way out of an arrest by claiming she was “on the job” was found guilty by a federal jury Thursday. Yessenia Jimenez, 32, and her boyfriend, Luis Soto, used her Bronx apartment as a stash house, where they kept kilos of heroin, fentanyl and cocaine they brought into the U.S. from Mexico, along with hundreds of thousands of dollars in drug money, prosecutors said.
