Sessions needs to stop the misuse of intelligence for politicsAttorney General Jeff Sessions Holds News Conference Discussing Efforts To Reduce Violent Crime

Sun, 17 Dec 2017 01:17:30 -0500

In hindsight, the most important thing said this year came on Jan. 3. Chuck Schumer, leader of Senate Democrats, warned President-elect Trump he would pay a price for disputing intelligence officials’ findings of Russian meddling. “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back...

How Tish James shamelessly milked the publicstefan_jeremiah_7758.jpg

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 22:37:01 -0500

Public Advocate Letitia James didn’t just take $750,000 in public money that she didn’t need for her campaign this year: She spent $500,000 of it on Election Day itself — dumping money she’d otherwise have been obliged to return. Her gaming of the system is arguably worse than Mayor de Blasio’s: He at least faced...

How lawsuit-friendly laws suck NY dry081916court6CS

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 22:33:54 -0500

Wonder why New York pays through the nose for everything from health care to construction projects to auto insurance — and taxes? A new report from the Empire Center has a one-word answer: lawsuits. State laws here “encourage a proliferation of civil suits,” notes the report’s authors, lawyers Cary Silverman and Mark Behrens. They peg...

Why depression and suicide are rampant among American farmersDoctor Jeffrey Menn with his grandaughter Shannan and his f.jpg

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 09:20:53 -0500

NORWALK, WIS. — Not long ago, a local farmer here plunged into a depression so intense that he could barely muster the strength to leave his bed. The 40-something father of eight went dark for weeks, despite the enormous amount of daily work needed to keep his family farm going. “If you are running a...

Why ‘Saturday Night Fever’ is secretly discriminatorytravolta

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 08:35:08 -0500

I’ve hated “Saturday Night Fever” since the first time I saw it in 1977. It’s the only Hollywood movie that offends me as an Italian-American. Sure, it’s “iconic” — but that debased term is now used for every pizza joint that closed because of a rent hike. I admit that I love the pulse-pounding opening...

Why ‘believe all women’ just doesn’t workBill O'Reilly

Sat, 16 Dec 2017 05:01:20 -0500

First there was Harvey Weinstein, whose appalling behavior toward women was so amply documented by The New York Times and The New Yorker. The dominoes began to fall. And soon they reached into my own industry. It wasn’t just Bill O’Reilly. Now the cascading accusations were reaching deep into the heart of the mainstream media....

The media are killing themselves with botched anti-Trump reportingcnn-media-press

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 19:14:04 -0500

‘Our record as journalists in covering this Trump story and the Russian story is pretty good,” legendary reporter Carl Bernstein recently claimed. Pretty good? If there’s a major news story over the past 70 years that the American media have botched more often because of bias and wishful thinking, I’d love to hear about it....

No, a cop’s ‘fears’ don’t justify every shootingPhilip Brailsford, Mike Piccarreta

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 19:06:06 -0500

The jurors who acquitted Philip Brailsford of second-degree murder last week were told to judge him based on “how a reasonable officer would act, versus a regular person with no police training,” as The Arizona Republic put it. That distinction was crucial, because a “regular person” would never get away with shooting an unarmed man...

The MTA is doing too much for Long Island as the subways suffer102417TrainNewFoldingSeats_gnm010.jpg

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:58:07 -0500

It’s full-steam ahead for yet another big-ticket MTA project for Long Islanders — even as the agency can’t find urgently needed funds for the city’s subways. On Wednesday, the MTA board OK’d a $1.8 billion contract for a third track for the LIRR’s Main Line between Floral Park and Hicksville. That will widen a bottleneck...

Andrew Cuomo tries out transparencyNY Gov. Cuomo And AFL-CIO President Join Union Members In Spectrum Protest

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:55:21 -0500

Within a day of our faulting him for not having held a full press conference in weeks, Gov. Cuomo faced reporters Wednesday. Nor was that his only step toward greater transparency this week: He also OK’d legislation that boosts public access to official documents and improves Albany’s ethical climate. Cuomo did get a bit testy...

Nikki Haley calls out Iran’s illegal arms tradeNikki Haley

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:53:09 -0500

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley just called out Iran for being a “threat to the peace and security of the entire world.” As extra, “undeniable” evidence, she pointed to a display of Iranian-made ballistic-missile parts — proof that Iran is supplying weapons to Houthi rebels in Yemen. The exhibition included charts and photographs, supplied by Saudi...

Morgan Spurlock’s cynical guilty plea — for what exactly?2017 Tribeca Film Festival - Portrait Studio

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 18:15:03 -0500

It’s come to this. Morgan Spurlock has issued a dramatic, guilt-fueled, angst-ridden confession entitled, “I Am Part of the Problem.’’ By his own account, the filmmaker, 47, best known for the 2004 documentary take-down of the fast-food industry, “Super Size Me,’’ was extremely, horrifically and chronically naughty. Yet as he tells it, he never sexually...

The other great mystery of Strzok’s textsUS-POLITICS-TRUMP-SPACE

Here’s a puzzle about the texts that got Peter Strzok in so much trouble: Why was the FBI’s top counterintelligence guy, an expert in secure communications, making radioactive comments via cellphone? In any event, the FBI inspector general came across the texts and informed Strzok’s then-superior, Special Counsel Bob Mueller — who quite rightly kicked...

How much paper is a cop supposed to push? Court-appointed NYPD monitor Peter Zimroth doesn’t seem to care. In his latest report, Zimroth complains that officers still aren’t filling out his forms every time they stop a civilian. But he admits they’re not trying to conceal anything: They just assumed they didn’t have to file...

It’s this close: Republicans in the House and Senate have struck a $1.5 trillion tax-cut deal that could put the economy on a fast track for years. All they need is to put the final touches on the bill and pass it in both chambers. President Trump could sign it by Christmas. That would be...

Cuomo’s taxpayer-funded ‘Shark Tank’ charadeHillary Clinton Holds Election Night Event In New York City

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 20:30:09 -0500

Gov. Cuomo is a central planner masquerading as a shark on a bizarro version of NBC’s “Shark Tank,” but using taxpayer money to reward the entities of his choosing. The results have been disastrous. Still, Cuomo on Tuesday presided over the 2017 Oscars of corporate welfare and pork officially known as the Regional Economic Development...

The past two months of electoral losses for the Trump GOP feel very familiar. Newly elected President Barack Obama’s party lost off-year gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New Jersey and suffered a stunning upset in a Senate race it had no business losing, in Massachusetts. Trump’s party lost off-year gubernatorial elections in Virginia and New...

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 20:19:47 -0500

On Wednesday, Congressional Republicans struck a massive $1.5 trillion tax-cut deal that slashes rates for large and small businesses, pares taxes for individual filers and nearly doubles standard deductions. GOP lawmakers are negotiating final details to get the bill to President Trump to sign before Christmas. It’s a close call in the Senate, because Republicans...

Sports desk: The NFL’s Violence Problem Pro football’s falling TV viewership is about a lot more than the kneeling protests, argues Theodore Kupfer at National Review: “The problem football faces is whether it is too violent to survive.” Take the Dec. 4 Steelers-Bengals game: “Were parents more likely to let their boys try out for...
