Here are some of the biggest myths of the Russian-collusion storyPresident Trump Meets With House Republicans On Capitol Hill To Discuss Tax Reform Bill

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:07:44 -0500

Polls show voters are jumping to the same conclusion as much of Washington: that President Trump “colluded” with Vladimir Putin to steal the presidential election. But the evidence doesn’t back that up. Instead, such perceptions are driven by a number of key government and media assertions, which on closer inspection, dissolve into illusion: MYTH: “We...

The lesson of that outrageous price for a da Vinci: There’s too much money aroundAuction Preview of Leonardo da Vinci Painting Salvator Mundi

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:04:36 -0500

Audible gasps filled the room Wednesday as someone dropped $450.3 million — not to modernize subway signals on one line or fund two days’ worth of New York City’s budget, but to buy a painting: “Salvator Mundi” by Leonardo da Vinci. After the Christie’s auction, the art world raged over what the painting is really...

The Senate’s chance to help kids in failing public schoolstax-reforms-529

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 20:00:26 -0500

The House’s just-passed tax plan would help parents find alternatives to failing public schools by expanding the 529 college-savings program to private K-12 schools. But the Senate has yet to commit to the idea. If senators want to help parents and kids, they’ll get on board — pronto. As of now, parents can sock away...

NYPD gets stung by judge’s Stingray rulingcell-phones-tracking

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 19:57:51 -0500

Looks like the cops, and law-abiding New Yorkers, just lost another one. On Wednesday, a state judge in Brooklyn issued a ruling that limits the NYPD’s use of a powerful crime-fighting tool, called a Stingray, which can track the location of a criminal suspect’s cellphone. The judge tossed the arrest of a murder suspect —...

The high cost of de Blasio’s free rentBegging in the centre of Hamburg

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 19:54:46 -0500

Talk about unsustainable: Since Mayor de Blasio took office, city outlays for tenants’ back rent have shot up 68 percent, to a whopping $214 million in 2016, the Gotham Gazette reported last week. That’s right: The city pays rent for people it fears might otherwise become homeless. And under de Blasio, the outflow of taxpayer...

Centrist: Congress’ Burgeoning Sex-Harassment Crisis The floodgates of sexual-misconduct claims against members of Congress are open, predicts Damon Linker at The Week: “How many senators and House members and elected and appointed officials at the federal, state and local levels will be forced to resign? And how many men will remain in these positions when...

As our family — grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles — arrive to celebrate holidays, there is one hard and fast rule in our home: Our children will stop what they are doing and will greet guests at the door with hugs. This has become surprisingly controversial. Take the Parents magazine piece by Kirsten Clodfelter titled...

The New School’s fake panel ‘to combat anti-Semitism’ENTERTAINMENT-US-GLAMOUR-WOMEN-SUMMIT

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 13:46:35 -0500

It’s the very definition of Orwellian: a panel titled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” that’s actually meant to promote Israel-bashing. Co-sponsored by The New School’s Creative Publishing and Critical Journalism program, the Nov. 28 event bills itself as “a discussion on how to combat anti-Semitism.” But it quickly reveals its true goal. “When anti-Semitism...

How New Yorkers are doubly burned by high cigarette taxcigs-smuggling-NY

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 13:41:26 -0500

New York is No. 1 — when it comes to bootleg cigarettes, anyway. A new Tax Foundation study cites New York as America’s tobacco bootlegging capital, with 55 percent of smokes sold here smuggled in. Blame high state and local cigarette taxes — $5.85 a pack, in total — and the city’s recent hike in...

From Roy Moore to Al Franken and Bill Clinton, stories about alleged sexual assaults are impossible to resist, especially when they come with photographic proof. But — stop the presses — they were not the most important political news of the week. That honor goes to passage of the tax bill by the House of...

Glen Dale, W. Va. — Bad news travels fast. Good news, meanwhile, doesn’t seem to travel at all. Last weekend in Beijing, as part of his 12-day trip to Asia, President Trump announced that the US and China had signed an $83.7 billion memorandum of understanding to create a number of petrochemical projects in West...

Hollywood is in a tizzy about what to do about next year’s Oscars. If the ceremony goes on as planned, everything about it is going to remind us of the Pervnado that has left Tinseltown reeling. Any appearances by former child stars are going to make us think about the allegations of widespread pedophilia made...

As a father of two young men, I am alarmed by the endless protests and outrage on both private and public university campuses today. Institutions like UC Berkeley and others have failed to correctly handle situations where pandemonium occurs and have been forced to cave in to countless demands of self-righteous radicals who seem to...

Twitter’s existential problem with fake anonymous accounts would seem like an especially difficult one to solve. But a separate controversy holds the key to a holistic solution. After weeding out 2,752 accounts linked to a Russian troll farm known as the Internet Research Agency, a bigger problem has emerged in the UK. Research by Sasha...

Gov. Cuomo tried to make political hay out of the GOP tax-cut plan by launching one of his sanctimonious lectures against Republicans. But this time, he got caught. Speaking to reporters Thursday, the gov ripped into the four New York House Republicans who voted for the plan, calling them “treasonous” because the bill scraps the...

Think Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito are anti-cop? Wait till the next City Council members take office and elect a new speaker. It won’t be pretty. That became clear Tuesday, as five candidates for council speaker vowed to ram through the Right to Know Act, a pair of bills that would dangerously handcuff...

A group that has Mayor de Blasio’s backing for a tram along the Brooklyn and Queens waterfront unveiled a cool prototype this week to drum up support. But what it really needs is funding. And someone not named de Blasio to make it happen. The project, which Hizzoner pitched last year, would run from Astoria,...

Don’t start rejoicing over Mugabe’s fall just yetZimbabwe Mugabe

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 21:54:09 -0500

Robert Mugabe, the cartoonish dictator of Zimbabwe, wasn’t corrupted by 37 years in power. Contrary to the myth his admirers created in the 1980s, he never was a selfless revolutionary devoted to the welfare of his people. From his political emergence in the 1960s to his ousting in a coup this week, Mugabe remained what...

Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio found common cause this week, publicly denouncing the Republican effort at tax reform. Cuomo said the plan “puts corporations over people,” while de Blasio said it would “rip off the middle class.” Their central concern: the rule allowing taxpayers to deduct state income (or sales) taxes and local property...

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 20:05:12 -0500

It’s gone far enough. What started as a necessary mass-rejection of sexual harassment and assault is sliding into absurdity and irrelevance. A backlash is looming against the very people the spontaneous battle against sexual villainy was meant to help: powerless women and men. The fight is being waged not with force, but with the rather...
