  • Inside the makeover of the Democratic (/socialist) Party

    The Democratic makeover is in full swing. **SNIP** Those tensions could come to a head if Pelosi struggles to be elected speaker. Even if she wins, it could be difficult for her to preside over a more liberal caucus. James, of the Collective PAC, said that's exactly the idea. "The status quo to me doesn't mean getting rid of people who have been in office a long time," she said. "It means you can't have the same mentality, you can't have the same goals. You can't have the same playbook. You've got to switch it up."

    More than 10,000 city workers stopped paying union dues By Rich Calder 1-2 minutes More than 10,000 city workers stopped paying their union dues after the landmark Supreme Court decision in June gave them the right to end the payments. City records show that there were 314,770 city workers paying union dues prior to the Janus v. AFSCME ruling on June 27 that found government workers can’t be forced to pay dues to unions that represent them in collective bargaining. By the first July pay period following the decision, the number dropped by 10,328 – or 3 percent – to...
  • (NY Dem. Governor Candidate) Cynthia Nixon self-identifies as 'queer,' not lesbian

    Actress Cynthia Nixon has been routinely described as trying to become the state’s first lesbian governor. But Nixon actually doesn't self-identify as a lesbian. She considers herself queer, campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said. Queer - one of the Qs in the LGBTQ movement, along with questioning—encompasses people who don't necessarily feel they fall under any specific label. Queer for decades had been used as a derisive term to attack nonheterosexuals. But in recent years, the term has been reclaimed by some - especially younger people - in the LGBTQ community. Hitt declined to discuss the reasons why Nixon identifies as...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Sunday that the state will file a lawsuit against President Trump and the federal government in light of the damage from Hurricane Maria that struck Puerto Rico in September 2017. [Snip] "President Trump never tried to help Puerto Rico. Florida got attention, Texas got attention, and Puerto Rico got the short end of the stick. That is not just wrong and unethical and despicable, it is also illegal," Governor Cuomo said. "We're going to work with Puerto Rican families and sue the President of the United States because New York is standing with Puerto...

    The National Rifle Association (NRA), the premier pro-gun lobby in the United States and arguably one of the country’s most powerful interest groups on any policy topic, says that efforts to fight it by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) could make it “unable to exist as a not-for-profit or pursue its advocacy mission.” In the July 20 amended complaint, first reported by the New York Law Journal’s Dan M. Clark and embedded at the bottom of this article, the NRA accuses Cuomo, as well as New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS) Superintendent Maria Vullo, of issuing a...

Newly-released tax documents show that Marinoni in 2013 drew a $96,200 salary - $117,560 counting retirement contributions - from The Fickle Mermaid, a pass-through corporation Nixon set up to handle her acting income and expenses. Nixon paid Marinoni a salary because of her role as her business partner, a campaign spokeswoman said. The company stopped paying Marinoni in 2014, when she got a job in the city Department of Education under Mayor de Blasio, a longtime Nixon pal whose campaign she...

    “It was one of the most severe beatings they’ve seen on tape,” an FDNY insider said, recalling the reaction by brass who viewed video of the bloody fisticuffs. “They can’t believe one of the guys wasn’t killed.” The tape shows Adam Soler, 35, of Engine 68, being held down by two firefighters from Rescue Co. 3 and repeatedly kicked by a third, said sources who were told about the video. “Someone grabbed his head and started pounding it into the pavement,” one said. Yet two months after the June 6 melee, no one has been arrested or fired.

    ALBANY — In January 2016, as Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo was preparing his annual State of the State address, some high-placed state officials knew they had a problem. A pair of business executives — partners in multimillion-dollar, private-public partnership deals with the state — were on their way to Albany, anticipating that Mr. Cuomo was going to announce their projects in his speech. But Mr. Cuomo had decided against doing so, worrying the executives. “We need to assure these guys their deals are solid,” Christopher Walsh, an associate vice president at the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute, wrote...

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo's comment saying that America "was never that great" was disgraceful, former NYPD officer Dan Bongino said on Saturday. The New York governor made the remark as a rebuke of President Trump's "Make America Great Again" slogan during a bill-signing event on Wednesday. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” he said.

    Not many words needed here. New York, Governor, Andrew Cuomo spoken words, bad mouthing the greatest country the world has ever seen...will live on to haunt him forever. The fellow is certainly not-too-bright in the brains department. New Yorkers should throw this unhinged, incapable, guy out the window right now, impeach him, remove him from office. Every New Yorker that voted for him, should hang their heads in shame and embarrassment. Stick with him and the Democrat Party, and you will die politically as the Democrat Party self destroys itself. That handwriting is clearly on the wall for all Americans...

    Is anyone really surprised by New York governor Andrew Cuomo saying, “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.” The Left has been saying that, if not quite so bluntly, for decades. The only difference is that many more Americans now hold that view, including a disconcerting number of putative “conservatives.”Dani Lever, a spokeswoman for Governor Cuomo, added that President Donald Trump’s Bull Moose patriotism “ignores the pain so many endured and that we suffered from slavery, discrimination, segregation, sexism and marginalized women’s contributions.”Yes, we’ve heard that before too, but the crescendo of hysteria is...

You can't make this stuff up: "Dear Sugars, I’m riddled with shame. White shame. This isn’t helpful to me or to anyone, especially people of color.
