    The member of the state parole board who cast the tie-breaking vote that granted early release to former Weather Underground terrorist Judith Clark is married to a convicted murderer — a revelation that has outraged Clark’s victims and their families. Former Nyack Detective Arthur Keenan, who was shot and wounded during the infamous 1981 Brink’s robbery in Rockland County, was stunned to learn from The Post that parole-board member Tana Agostini had ruled on Clark’s case. “I’m very shocked that Agostini would be allowed to make a decision on someone who is a murderer,” Keenan said Sunday. “It’s a conflict of interest,”...

    Judith Clark, the getaway driver in a deadly Brinks truck robbery has been paroled. New York State Parole Board: “After 38 years in prison and six months shy of her 70th birthday, Judith Clark was granted parole today by the State Parole Board.” NY TIMES ARTICLE Statement from County Executive Day Regarding Parole of Judith Clark “Today’s ruling by the parole board is a cruel and unjust slap in the face to the families of Sergeant Edward O’Grady, Officer Waverly “Chipper” Brown and Brinks guard Peter Paige.

  • Explosive Packages a False Flag?

    American Thinker.com ^ | October 25, 2018 | Daniel John Sobieski
    Now the Democrats genuinely get to say “both sides”, with packages containing explosives sent to the Clintons, Eric Holder, George Soros and others conveniently two weeks before a possibly history-changing midterm election. The blame is already being put on those whom Hillary called “deplorables” and a package sent to CNN will be blamed on President Trump for those “CNN sucks” chants at Trump rallies. Somehow it is all too convenient, this “October surprise”. None of the named targets were really in danger, although others could have been hurt touching, picking up, or opening a package. The same could not be...

    Jim Webb, the decorated Vietnam combat veteran, writer, and former US senator, wrote “Heroes of the Vietnam Generation,”which pairs well with an earlier essay, “Peace? Defeat? What Did the Vietnam War Protesters Want?,” published by the American Enterprise Institute, in 1997. Both are very useful, especially for those who didn’t live through the Vietnam era, for understanding some of that generation’s dynamics. Webb discusses how it was really the first time in US history when a lot of people argued not going into the military was actually a good thing, and this sentiment has guided how a lot of people...

    Let’s not forget Bernardine Dohrn, Bill Ayers, and the Four-Finger Salute. Most articles on the death of madman Charles Manson opened by mentioning his role in the diabolical Tate-LaBianca murders. The AP story started this way: Charles Manson, the hippie cult leader who became the hypnotic-eyed face of evil across America after orchestrating the gruesome murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles during the summer of 1969, died Sunday after nearly a half-century in prison.… The Manson Family, as his followers were called, slaughtered five of its victims on Aug. 9, 1969, at Tate’s home:...

    When Daniel and Elizabeth married in 1993, they found it was easy enough to choose a ring for her, but there were far fewer choices for him. Daniel, then a 27-year-old who worked in information technology, decided to design one himself, requesting that tiny stones be placed in a gold band, like planets orbiting in a solar system. He was happy with the ring, and what it represented, until it became obvious after the wedding that he was allergic to the nickel that was mixed in with the gold in the band. As if in revolt, his finger grew red...

    Old age and illness have not dulled the tongue or treasonous soul of convicted jihad-enabling lawyer Lynne Stewart. She's as vile and violence-promoting as ever. Freed from prison two years ago on "compassionate release" after being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, the flaming 76-year-old radical is still championing left-wing massacres against the police. And still kicking America in the teeth. The Associated Press reported over the holiday weekend that the mouthy menace remains stubbornly devoted to "armed struggle." Translation: Sicko Grandma Stewart — as unrepentant and unapologetic as the rest of her rotten hippie pals in the bloodthirsty Weather Underground,...

    A once-prominent New York civil rights lawyer convicted of helping a terrorist client communicate with his followers is still battling the cancer that earned her compassionate release from prison over two years ago - and she is still as radical as ever, even expressing support for the killers of police officers. Lynne Stewart, a 76-year-old great-grandmother, said in an interview with The Associated Press at her Brooklyn home that she is increasingly drained of energy by a disease that was projected to kill her at least six months ago.

    The reason Bernie Sanders pointedly refuses to condemn his supporters for throwing chairs and making death threats against Democrat officials at and after the party’s Nevada convention is because he doesn’t actually object to their violent behavior. Sanders blew off pressure from Democrat leaders to disavow ugly tactics by his supporters at the event Saturday evening, calling the complaints “nonsense” and arguing that his supporters were not treated with "fairness and respect."

    They picket Hamilton College fund-raiser over employment of Susan Rosenberg. About 30 Rockland County police officers and friends picketed a Hamilton College fund-raiser in Manhattan Friday night to protest the college's hiring of a former radical once indicted in the murder of two police officers. Members of the Rockland County Patrolmen's Benevolent Association want the college to rescind the hiring of Susan Rosenberg. She served 16 years in prison for possessing more than 600 pounds of explosives, and was indicted in a Brink's armored car robbery in 1981. Two Nyack police officers - both members of the Rockland County PBA...

    U.S. Ambassador To Belgium Howard Gutman, who was a top Obama campaign bundler, reportedly “solicited prostitutes, including minors.” Gutman was also a Palin-basher who challenged her parenting skills. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) The New York Post reported, via Weasel Zippers: A State Department whistleblower has accused high-ranking staff of a massive coverup — including keeping a lid on findings that members of then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s security detail and the Belgian ambassador solicited prostitutes. A chief investigator for the agency’s inspector general wrote a memo outlining eight cases that were derailed by senior officials, including one instance of interference by Clinton’s chief of staff,...

    Three and a half decades after avoiding punishment for bombing the Pentagon, Bill Ayers is still "guilty as sin, free as a bird," to use his own phraseology of 35 years ago. "For every human being life is, in part, an experience of suffering and loss and pain," Ayers writes in Teaching with Conscience in an Imperfect World: An Invitation, published by the Teacher's College Press at Columbia University this year. "But our living experience also embraces other inescapable facts: that we are all in this together, and that much (but not all) of what we suffer in life is...

    --SNIP-- As the association between Obama and Ayers came to light, it would have helped the senator a little if his friend had at least shown some remorse. But listen to Ayers interviewed in the New York Times on September 11, 2001, of all days: “I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” Translation: “We meant to kill that judge and his family, not just damage the porch.” When asked by the Times if he would do it all again, Ayers responded: “I don’t want to discount the possibility.”

    ISIS, perhaps more than any other multinational terrorist group, has become known for its ability to attract Westerners away from their comfortable lives in prosperous countries and into the dangerous world of violent jihad. Peter Bergen, who was the first journalist to interview Osama bin Laden on television and has written five books on terrorism, explored what attracts Americans to radical Islam in his new book, "The United States of Jihad." There's no one-size-fits-all explanation for why Westerners join foreign terrorist organization, nor is there one common profile for an American jihadist. "Each case is a little bit different, and...
