    Hillary Clinton will run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, according to a former adviser and a top Democrat in New York. Mark Penn, a pollster and senior adviser to former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 1995-2008, and Andrew Stein, a former Manhattan Democratic party figure and New York City Council president, wrote Sunday in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee would not let "two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House." "Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this...

    Former City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, an openly gay supporter of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, called Cynthia Nixon an “unqualified lesbian” a day after the actress announced she’s going to challenge the governor in a primary. In an interview with The Post, Quinn also denounced Nixon for endorsing Bill de Blasio over her in the 2013 Democratic primary for mayor. “I’m surprised by this race. It’s a flight of fancy on her part,” Quinn said of Nixon’s announcement Monday that she would take on Cuomo in September’s Democratic primary. “Cynthia Nixon was opposed to having a qualified lesbian become mayor of...

    Ana Navarro is a bitter, pro-amnesty Bush hack who can’t handle the fact that Donald Trump not only won the presidency, but completely destroyed the Bush dynasty and any future in politics for Bush and their lackeys. Christine Quinn is a butch liberal New Yorker who ran for Mayor of NYC and failed to Communist Bill de Blasio. Both Ana Navarro and Christine Quinn were reduced to screamer at Kayleigh McEnany and Jeffrey Lord.

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    And people have been worrying whether the Trump administration would conduct itself in a mature manner? . . . On CNN this morning, Christine Quinn—former NYC Council Speaker and a Hillary surrogate—used childish antics in an attempt to silence conservative radio talk show host Ben Ferguson on the subject of sanctuary cities. At one point [1:46 in video], Quinn raised her hand and angrily yelled “ah, ba-ba-ba-ba!” to shut Ferguson down. It was the most churlish display by a political pundit this Insurrectionist can remember. Ferguson took it all in stride, smiling wryly through Quinn’s antics. View the video here.

    During a heated CNN interview on Wednesday night, Donald Trump surrogate Kayleigh McEnany questioned the appearance of Omar Mateen's father at a Hillary Clinton rally earlier this week. When McEnany questioned liberal Christine Quinn on the incident, Quinn screamed “Wait a minute, no!… You can’t ask me a question!” “‘Because you can’t answer the question,” McEnay said. Quinn shouted back, “Oh! You can’t ask me a question, honey, I can’t answer!” McEnany complied with Quinn's demands. "What attracted the father of the Orlando terrorist to your candidate?" she asked. "He's a mentally ill individual!" Quinn said. McEnany then concluded that...
  • Bill de Blasio’s Other Party: How the Working Families party took over New York City

    National Review ^ | 01/15/2014 | John Fund
    As recently as 1998, New York State’s Republican party controlled the governorship, a United States Senate seat, and the mayor’s office in Manhattan. Today, it is greatly diminished, with its sole beachhead of influence in the state senate, where it shares a majority with four independent Democrats. In contrast, the Working Families party (WFP), a 15-year-old left-wing, union-fueled group with just 20,000 members, now holds the whip hand over much of the dominant Democratic party in New York — and is already spreading its wings to other states. The WFP not only was a major force behind Bill de Blasio’s...

    If the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) stuck to its stated mission statement and only did civil rights work protecting Muslim Americans from discrimination and bigotry, you likely would never see it mentioned on this site.But CAIR has a second, perhaps more paramount objective that it never directly acknowledges: To oppose Israel and promote Palestinian nationalism.CAIR’s mission statement makes no mention of Palestine. Instead, it says it aims to “enhance understanding of Islam, protect civil rights, promote justice, and empower American Muslims.” It describes its lobbying arm as focusing “on issues related to Islam and Muslims. The department monitors legislation and government activities and responds...

    CNN goes into typical leftist “downplay” mode. On Friday, just days after 11 people were murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue, New York City , for vandalizing a New York synagogue with anti-Semitic messages. “Die Jew rats we are here,” read one message, along with “Jews better be ready,” and “Hitler.” The next day, CNN failed to report that Polite, 26, was a Democrat activist who had worked on the Obama campaign in 2008.  CNN described him as a “Brooklyn man” arrested and charged with a hate crime for the anti-Semitic messages and “criminal mischief and making graffiti.” Other reports found...

    A 26-year-old man charged with vandalizing a historic New York City synagogue on Friday, just days after the Pittsburgh massacre, has been identified as a former campaign worker for Barack Obama who was profiled by the New York Times in 2017. The Times described James Polite as a young man who “spent much of his childhood in foster care,” and performed canvassing work for Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. After a chance meeting, he got a job that year as an intern for Christine Quinn, a former speaker of New York City’s city council who was also a former mayoral candidate....

    This is exactly the phenomenon that I had described after the Pittsburgh shootings in, "If the Synagogue Shooter Were Muslim, the Media Would Be Defending Him." In 2006, Naveed Afzal Haq used a teenage girl as a hostage to force his way into the Seattle Jewish Federation where he shot 6 women. The Muslim attacker shouted, “You Jews” at the non-Jewish marketing director and shot her in the stomach. The bookkeeper went into cardiac arrest, died at the scene, was revived and died again on the operating table and still lived to testify at Haq's trial. "I want these Jews...

    “It is somewhat perplexing,” said Garrett Derderian, director of data and reporting for brokerage Stribling & Associates, which also released a report on Manhattan home sales Tuesday. “The financial markets are quite strong. Mortgage rates, while rising, are still at historic lows. But the perception has become that the market is overheating in terms of pricing. No one obviously wants to come in at the top where they’re paying the highest prices as things are going down.”

    An Upper West Side philanthropist who was nearly killed by a shopping cart that was tossed by teens from an overpass won a $45.2 million jury award Friday — and said she plans to donate a portion of the money to a local youth center. Victim Marion Hedges, 53, shook with emotion when the verdict was announced — but she didn’t shed a tear because a side effect of her brain damage is the inability to cry. She then stood and applauded the jurors before they left Manhattan Supreme Court. “It’s been a long, long road,” Hedges said. Hedges and...

    Veteran professors at the Manhattan school renowned for training future crime-fighters ran a lawless den of depravity called “the swamp,” where they allegedly used and sold drugs, and “pimped” out and sexually preyed on students, according to two women at the center of a widening scandal at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. The shocking allegations are now under criminal probe by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and the state Inspector General, The Post has learned. After the paper first revealed two weeks ago that formal sex-harassment complaints against four professors were being probed by the taxpayer-funded CUNY school,...

    A banker for Paul Manafort was robbed overnight of an iPad, a briefcase, and some sneakers at his Manhattan penthouse, according to a report. David Fallarino, who works at Citizens Bank, told authorities he left his terrace door open before he went to sleep Monday, NBC affiliate News 4 reported. He heard a noise around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday and found a crow bar on the terrace. Fallarino said his wine cabinet had been opened, and there was a bottle of wine on the floor. No other items were reported missing. Fallarino did not testify at Manafort’s trial earlier this month....
