    Progressive female lawmakers said Tuesday Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh will overturn a woman’s right to an abortion and endanger women’s access to health care, creating a life or death situation if he’s confirmed to the high court. The Democratic senators claimed the president’s nominee was selected by right-wing, conservative groups who want to repeal the Affordable Care Act and overturn Roe v Wade, the 1973 landmark decision creating a legal right to an abortion.

    In a New York Magazine cover story, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting survivor turned progressive activist David Hogg lashed out at Democratic leadership, accusing them of not getting “the f**k off the plate” and giving the next generation its turn. In the glowing profile, Hogg shares that he plans to run for office when he turns 25. He is on a gap year but will begin college next year and read a “s**tload of books.” He said that Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is “a future president of the United States” and floated the idea of age limits for politicians....
  • Trump Harms Religious Freedom by Intolerance to Some, Favoritism to Evangelicals, NYT Says

    Evangelical leaders have responded to the New York Times' claim that the Trump administration is undermining its own priority of protecting religious freedom by emphasizing the policy priorities of evangelical Christians. On Saturday, The New York Times editorial board published an opinion piece titled "A Too-Narrow Vision of Religious Freedom." The piece essentially argues that although "the Trump administration embraces a laudable desire to expand religious tolerance" across the globe, it is the administration's "own intolerance toward some" that "undermines the message." For examples of intolerance, NYT mentions "Trump's disgraceful attempts to ban Muslims from some countries from entering the...
  • Is Andrew Brunson's Release More Important Than Alliance With Turkey?

    Christian Post ^ | 08/21/2018 | Mark Tooley
    American evangelicals and human rights advocates are encouraging the United States to pressure Turkey to release American missionary Andrew Brunson, who faces ridiculous allegations of complicity in Kurdish terrorism. Are they right to do so, even if the price is estrangement with a key NATO member and harm to US regional interests? How should Christians in their political witness balance Christian causes versus the wider national good? The president, vice president and secretary of state have all denounced Turkey's imprisonment of Brunson. Economic sanctions have been levied against Turkish products, and personal sanctions have targeted two Turkish officials. Congress has...

    Emails show lobbyist communicating with top Cuomo officials NY Times obtained nearly 350 pages of emailsA cache of emails shows a lobbyist whose cooperation helped convict two former aides to Gov. Andrew Cuomo on corruption charges had access to top officials in the governor's administration as he sought help for clients. The New York Times obtained nearly 350 pages of emails as part of a Freedom of Information request showing aide-turned-lobbyist Todd Howe had access to top Cuomo officials for years. Howe was a key figure in federal corruption trials this year involving former Cuomo adviser Joseph Percoco and the...

    Early this morning, United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) implemented a 2004 order of deportation to the Federal Republic of Germany of Jakiw Palij, a former Nazi SS labor camp guard in German-occupied Poland and a postwar resident of Queens, New York. President Trump commends his Administrations comprehensive actions, especially ICEs actions, in removing this war criminal from United States soil. Despite a court ordering his deportation in 2004, past administrations were unsuccessful in removing Palij. To protect the promise of freedom for Holocaust survivors and their families, President Trump prioritized the removal of Palij. Through extensive negotiations, President...

    Mara Gay, a member of the far-left New York Times editorial board, believes Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) was being honest when he said America “was never that great.” She also agrees with the sentiment. During a speech before supporters Wednesday, Cuomo was very clear about why he does not believe America has ever been great. After criticizing President Trump’s “Make America Great” slogan, Cuomo laid out his reasoning. “We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great,” he said, as his supporters laughed and gasped. “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every...

    “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...
  • Toronto's Homicide Rate is now higher than New York's

    With just days to go before the halfway point of 2018, Toronto Police have confirmed at least 48 homicides within the city since January 1. That's more than double the 23 we'd seen last year at this point. Five people were killed last weekend alone — four of them by guns — prompting both Police Chief Mark Saunders and Mayor John Tory to express public concern over a recent spike in shooting deaths. "The incidents of gun violence we have seen in our city in the past few days are shocking and can in no way be accepted or...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a rising star in the Democratic Party, but also its far left flank. Some have called her the future. You can take that as a bad thing, given that her agenda will cost us tens of trillions of dollars over the next decade; the three-decade projection soar into hundreds of trillions ($218 trillion to be exact), or view that as a sign of GOP wins for the next decade due to voters suffering from the sticker shock. Her inability to grasp basic economics also doesn’t work in her favor. Still, she gained prominence to clipping incumbent Democratic...

    The White House counsel has figured out how to appear transparent without giving Mueller the information he needs. Has Don McGahn turned on Donald Trump? On Saturday, the New York Times published a lengthy story suggesting as much, hinting that the White House counsel may have reached the limits of his loyalty to the president. Reporters Maggie Haberman and Michael Schmidt detail McGahn’s assistance to Mueller’s Russia probe, including 30 hours of voluntary interviews with investigators. Trump, they write, allowed McGahn to speak to Mueller’s team, though the president may not have grasped the extent of his cooperation.

    In a searing speech from the pulpit of a black church, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo told a Brooklyn congregation on Sunday that Donald Trump is a “slick salesman” who fooled many people in this country, but the Democrat said the Republican president hasn’t fooled New Yorkers. Cuomo spoke at Brooklyn’s First Baptist Church of Crown Heights after a week of criticism for saying America “was never that great” during a bill signing. New York Republicans have demanded he apologize, and Trump tweeted that Cuomo was having a “total meltdown.” The governor seemed to counter what many observers considered a...

    President Trump’s former personal lawyer is being investigated over more than $20 million in loans to taxi companies owned by him and his family — and could face charges within the next two weeks, according to a new report Sunday. Michael Cohen is also being probed over deals to buy the silence of women who claimed they had affairs with Trump, The New York Times reported. Federal authorities are in the final stage of their investigation and are weighing charges including bank and tax fraud and violations of campaign finance law, people familiar with the matter told the paper. Prosecutors...

    The Italian actress and director Asia Argento was among the first women in the movie business to publicly accuse the producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual assault. She became a leading figure in the #MeToo movement. Her boyfriend, the culinary television star Anthony Bourdain, eagerly joined the fight. But in the months that followed her revelations about Mr. Weinstein last October, Ms. Argento quietly arranged to pay $380,000 to her own accuser: Jimmy Bennett, a young actor and rock musician who said she had sexually assaulted him in a California hotel room years earlier, when he was only two months past...
