    On May 19, 2009, along with a lot of other people, I was laid off from Quark. That was my best-paid job to date, and it would turn out to be my last full-time job.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio is the first New York City mayor to release his tax returns in 12 years, according to the WSJ. de Blasio earned $165,000 as public advocate last year and brought in an additional $52,000 in rent on a second home he owns in Park Slope, according to his 2013 tax returns. Mr. de Blasio’s effective tax rate was 8.3%. As WSJ reports, Mr. de Blasio’s predecessor, Michael Bloomberg, a billionaire who served as mayor from 2002 through 2013, released highly redacted copies of his return that gave scant information about his net worth. In 2001, during...

    Chuck Schumer Pushes Plan To Wipe Out Tea Party Calls for nonpartisan ‘blanket’ primaries By Jacqueline Klimas January 23, 2014 "Do what a handful of states have done and have a primary where all voters, members of every party, can vote and the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, then enter a runoff," Sen. Charles E. Schumer suggests in his scheme to weaken the tea party. (Associated Press) Democrats should push for more open primaries as a way of weakening the tea party movement, Sen. Charles E.

    John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, said on Sunday that the administration had new evidence that sarin gas was used in an attack by Syrian government forces that killed 1,400 people last month. Kerry also said that he is certain that Congress will approve the attack on Syria, and invoked the name of Israel in this context. “I can’t contemplate that Congress would turn its back on Israel and Jordan and the allies of the region,” Kerry said on “Fox News Sunday,” saying that lawmakers had a duty to act to uphold international norms against using chemical weapons.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is fuming over the House’s decision to not hold a vote on Superstorm Sandy relief package. Speaking at a news conference Wednesday afternoon, the Republican governor said the only group to blame for decision is the House’s GOP majority and Speaker John Boehner. Christie said he tried calling Speaker John Boehner four times Tuesday night, but Christie said Boehner didn’t take his call. Christie says the storm aid measure is not something you “play politics with” when people are suffering. Christie said “our people were played last night as a pawn. And that’s why people...

    As the Democrats attempt to blame former President George W. Bush for all the ills of the current economy, it is worthwhile to remember that the collapse of the housing market due to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans that should have never been approved was the driving force behind the economic collapse of 2008. President Bush, along with other Republicans like John McCain had tried to move legislation to deal with the loans being given to people who simply could not afford to buy a house. But Democrats led by Barney Frank insisted on their social engineering policy that...

    7 years ago, when the drilling in America debate began in earnest, the liberals like Chuck Schumer all bleated that it would take 7 years for America to benefit from drilling, and we have to fix it now. They fixed it by attempting to put a further tax on gasoline, which of course, Big Oil (whoever they are) would promptly pass onto the consumer. Of course no one remembers it now. But Schumer is reminding of us of it, by continuing to blast Oil Companies for making money. He also conveniently forgets that we would be producing our own oil...

Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Addressing the fifth annual American Constitution Society convention Friday, Schumer said the Senate had been misled by the "charm of nominee Roberts and the erudition of nominee [Samuel] Alito."

"The Yiddish Policemen's Union" depicts Jews as constantly in conflict with one another, and its villains are a ruthless, ultra-Orthodox sect that resembles the Lubavitchers, reports The Post's Kyle Smith. Chabon, who is Jewish, depicts some of his Jewish characters as willing to do anything, including massacring other Jews, in the cause of Zionism.

On a tarmac in Texas where the president boarded Air Force One for the trip east, Bush political strategist Karl Rove mockingly questioned what kind of alternate rally Crist could put together that would rival...

Yet, even by his remarkable standard of chutzpah, Mr. Schumer outdid himself at Wednesday's press conference. The eminent UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, in his essay, "Yiddish & the Law," observes that the classic definition of chutzpah is itself taken from the law: Chutzpah is when the man who kills his parents begs for mercy because he's an orphan.

    A computer technician who prosecutors said enabled the largest identity theft in U.S. history, surpassing $50 million, pleaded guilty Tuesday to conspiracy, saying he did not realize that his accomplices would do so much damage. "I didn't know the magnification," Philip A. Cummings told U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels, who set sentencing for Jan. 11.

Disney, which bought Miramax more than a decade ago, has a contractual agreement with the Miramax principals... Executives at Miramax, who became principal investors in Mr. Moore's project last spring, do not believe that...

Their lilting voices filled a drab conference room at Gaborone's main hospital, and their modern African rap unfolded as the world's richest couple looked on. "ABSTAIN!" "Be faithful!" "Condom-ize!" "Save your life!" ... The Gateses are pouring billions of dollars into world health initiatives, a cause they have backed since 1994 but have tackled with rising fervor in the past couple of years. The extent of their giving has...
