School Curriculum Leaked, Hope You Like The Neo-Marxist Lesson Plans…This Is Why Teachers Are Worried Parents Will Listen To Their Virtual Classes


Written by Staff Writer | August 11, 2020

The State of New York’s curriculum for the “Week of Action” was leaked online with lesson plans and supplemental material. The Week of Action is being defined as, “a national uprising that affirms the lives of Black students, teachers and families. This week centers classroom lessons about structural racism, intersectional Black identities, Black history, and anti-racism through the 13 Guiding Principles from the Black Lives Matter movement. “

This curriculum is being promoted by the big teacher’s unions in New York to be adopted by the entire state. This curriculum is being used by teachers in New York. These lessons and one like them are why teachers are concerned about “spectators” listening to them since school will be virtual this fall.

Yes in one week your elementary school-aged child will learn everything they need to know to become a social justice warrior with these 12 “mini-lessons.”

Oh, but just you wait, there is so much more…

This was perhaps my favorite lesson because action week is supposed to be about becoming a social justice warrior for oppressed minorities right? WRONG!

It’s also to support your local fascist teacher’s union.

In one of the lessons, elementary school kids are to role play teacher’s going on strike. The lesson instructs teachers as follows:

You may want to pair this activity with our lesson Why Did LA Teachers Go on Strike, which invites students to learn about and discuss some of the issues surrounding the January 2019 strike by teachers in Los Angeles.

This roleplay introduces students experientially to the concept of a strike, including some of its risks and benefits. You as teacher play the role of district superintendent and students play the role of teachers. By having to make decisions about whether to strike, and by defending their reasoning, students will better understand the risks and benefits of the choice to strike, both for the teachers themselves and for the school district as a whole.

The roleplay ends with a debrief that is, in some ways, the most crucial part of the lesson. In the debrief, you will encourage students to step back and reflect instead on how public education faces larger systemic issues. Be sure to leave plenty of time for the debrief; students are often eager to explain their choices and question others about theirs.

Keep in mind this lesson is for elementary school-aged kids and I’m only scratching the surface.

How about this lesson designed for grades K-5 on how art and LGBTQ rights and compares the quest of the LGBTQ community to the Jewish Holocaust during World War II. Below are screenshots of the lesson:

 

Also provided in the state of New York’s 2020 curriculum resource guide is these wonderful coloring pages for pre-kindergarten students:

In high school students will be equipped with the “#TrayvonTaughtMe” toolkit, “digital campaign highlights the beginnings of the BlackLives Matter movement, and how Trayvon’s extrajudicial murder and his family commitment to ending gun violence and strengthening communities catalyzed a generation of organizers and activists to take action for Black lives.”

The toolkit provides students with posts they can place on social media to remember Trayvon Martin and demand “state-sanctioned violence.” You are also provided with Snapchat/Facebook live video scripts.

Like I said I am only scratching the surface. I firmly believe in equality and that people should be judged on the content of their character, not of their skin, gender, or sexual preference. However, what the state of New York has produced is not curriculum on equality it’s manipulating children into becoming woke, social justice, zombies. As I looked through the piles and piles of anti-racist critical theory curriculum not once did I see the simple principle…treat others the way you want to be treated.

Watch: Black Lives Matter Protestors Storm Peaceful Church, Clash With Parishioners


URL of the originating web site: https://redrightdaily.com/watch-black-lives-matter-protestors-storm-peaceful-church/

Koletas denounced the officer that killed, has been charged with, the murder of George Floyd however, has also been critical of rioters claiming the violence is caused by “a bunch of savages who have let their sins run rampant.”

Video shows that protestors stormed the church and chanted “Black Lives Matter” in the sanctuary. As they left they surrounded the outside of the church and began to create scuffles with parishioners trying to keep them out. Police did respond, there were no reported arrests.

Parishioners trying to enter the church…

The attack on the church comes just a couple of weeks after BLM activist Sean King called for images of white Jesus to be destroyed.

According to a local New York paper the Times Union, the pastor is considered alt-right because he spoke against those that engaged in violent riots, was having a gun giveaway, and made the churches motto “Where the Spirit of the Lord lives, there is liberty.”

Greg Gutfeld OPED: The Narratives of Madness


Commentary by Greg Gutfeld By Greg Gutfeld | Fox News

Two weeks ago, my neighborhood was one of many in the country that was looted. Nearly every store assaulted, trashed, and emptied. In some cases, the looters returned to the same store a dozen times – just to make sure they didn’t miss anything. One of those was across the street from my window, where my wife huddled alone, filming the rotating mob on her iPhone.

They were more than a mob – a collection of mobs really– but they were also well organized, determined, and had a specific taste for Balenciaga. They even returned to that store later in the week, tore down the plywood that covered the shattered glass – just to re-loot it again. It reminded me of a guy who goes back to an ashtray to smoke old butts.

My friend who runs a restaurant watched one teen face-timing with his mom, telling her what his take had been so far. He couldn’t have been more than 17.

I wasn’t home that night. My wife was. She was alone in our apartment in the epicenter of this unfettered crime wave. I didn’t know it at the time, because she told me she was at a friend’s house outside the city. She had gone to her friends initially but decided to come home early, assuming my warnings were exaggerated (as they often are).  And as it got late, she realized it was a mistake.

Go figure: The boy who always cried wolf, actually saw the real wolf coming.  She didn’t call me – thinking I would have freaked out. She was right on that.

We had hired private security the night before to watch over the property. The looters were still able to bash one storefront in our building. But the apartments were unscathed.

The next night, however, rioters lurked the streets, uninterested in stores, but residences. I was told by the building manager that he heard from others that they were throwing hammers up at apartment windows.

I’m not going to pretend why my neighborhood was targeted. It’s full of high-end boutiques and over-priced trendy shoe and bag shops, making them ideal places for a mass orgy of smash and grab. This wasn’t a protest. It was a criminal enterprise.

When I mentioned this unraveling hell on social media – someone mocked me for my suffering. That by living in such an area – I had it coming. It’s the lifestyle equivalent of “the way you’re dressed, you’re practically asking for it.”

So let’s address that. I live where I live because I can afford to live there. After working for 35 years, climbing up the ladder – I made it. My first job paid me 12 grand a year. I was dead broke in my early twenties. I ended up squatting in a semi-vacant building in Georgetown during part of one summer. I had to leave a moat of borax around my foldaway bed, so the roaches wouldn’t climb into my sheets. Needless to say, I really didn’t date much during this period.

Later, I slept on couches belonging to people only slightly better off than me. I was then unemployed, living at home for a year, following that.

Then I moved to Allentown, Pa. and took a job for 22k. In my twenties, I never made more than $50,000 a year.

In my thirties, I finally tasted the low six figures, when I became editorial creative director of Men’s Health.

Then, after a few more editorial gigs, I took a pay cut to come to Fox.

Over 30 years, I made it to a point where I could live in a neighborhood that is so alluring, it would be savagely assaulted by mobs the moment the chance for that, availed itself. I tell you this to remind you that every person operating a business that was attacked and looted also worked most of their lives to have that business.  It’s their life. Their sweat. Their hard work. They earned their success.

And the people who took it from them are despicable.

And the people who defend this in the media and elsewhere, are beyond redeemable. They are apologists for terror.

I pray they never experience what these people have during these past riots.

No one has the right to take what belongs to you. No one can say, “That’s no longer yours — it’s mine.”

But not in the minds of the identity obsessed and eternally aggrieved.

If you’ve succeeded in life, then you’re easy pickings for life’s envious losers.

But I digress.

For days afterward, I couldn’t go back.

There was something sad and bad about the area. It reminded me of the time a college buddy got his blue Mustang stolen. When they found the car, insurance wouldn’t total it, because they said the damage was minimal. We looked at the car. It was trashed inside. They obviously gutted the ignition. It appeared they had relieved themselves a number of times in the back seat.

They stole the radio and shredded the seats. There were things done in that car that defied description because we weren’t sure exactly what we were looking at. You could tell my buddy just wanted to get rid of the car. There was a stain to it you couldn’t remove. A smell. A scar. An everlasting memory. It had been ruined – violated for life – and you would always feel that violation when you got in the car.

I felt that way as I now walked the blocks around my apartment – with every store boarded up, covered with leaflets and spray-painted warnings to “Pigs.”  Can this place ever return? Will I ever forget, or just accept, what happened?

The streets were now quiet and calm; the police now present. The bars were opening; serving to-go cups to patrons, since no one has yet figured out how to seat customers since COVID. People stare at each other, drinking cocktails, pretending life is almost normal.

Maybe that’s the solution: Pretending life is almost normal.

Make no mistake: what happened in my neighborhood was no protest. It was an opportunity taken.

As the protesters, agitators and rioters spread the police force thin, it proved a glorious time to hit all those vulnerable stores, with their empty streets caused by the shutdown. I imagine if the streets were teeming with foot traffic, maybe the mayhem wouldn’t have happened.

To say I am demoralized is an understatement.

And I was here for 9/11. I was also in London during the 7/7 attacks. I was here for the financial meltdown, the COVID pandemic.

I remember the surreal daze that 9/11 created among all of us New Yorkers. We wandered around like bewildered survivors, wondering when this evil fist will strike again.

Every plane that crossed the skies above us made us twitch.

For weeks after, we drank a lot, did mounds of drugs and hooked up with people we shouldn’t have. The hedonism numbed the fear, until the fear faded.

That was the solution for many of us.

But today feels different and more hopeless- — only because we can’t find a solution, at all.

And also, because “we” did it to ourselves. The looters and rioters likely live in New York or Jersey. They really knew the turf. But worse, the trigger for a repeat performance presents itself daily. And once it’s pulled, such pandemonium will erupt again.  All it takes is another video, or a not-guilty verdict for one of those cops, or even a Trump win in November.  Because we’ve sanctioned the behavior of the mob, it’s inevitable.

There are 10 million arrests every year. And out of that, roughly 1,000 people are fatally shot by police. Most of the dead are white. But it doesn’t matter. One video with a racial difference and this will kick off again. Which is why we don’t do something, we are doomed.

We are stuck in a repeat cycle, where the media selects the story offered up by the enraged and amplifies it even more. They ignore one crime but embrace another – to fulfill a narrative.

Mind you, this isn’t “woe is me.”  It’s “woe is us.”  All of us.

My only solution?

The major media need to figure out a way to reduce the amplification of this narrative. Because the odds of another video appearing to show explosive and ugly violence, is 100 percent.

As I wrote this piece on Saturday night, another terrible incident took place in Atlanta – resulting in rioting and the wholesale destruction of a Wendy’s (this, after the chain donated a half-million dollars to “social justice”).

As long as we are at the mercy of many in the media’s interpretation of the larger issue that these videos speak to — the chaos will never end. We – the industry – must go beyond what many seem to be doing – just ginning up the racial divide.

There are some videos you don’t see. Like the one of the death of Tony Timpa. If he were a black man you would know of him. I didn’t know of him until a recent, devastating Sam Harris podcast. I didn’t get it from cable news. These videos are horrifying but they don’t tell entire stories.

It’s not literally “black and white.” Sometimes the fuller story is worse, as Scott Adams points out. It may not be racially motivated, but it’s repugnant nonetheless.

You see repetitive evidence of bad, insufficient training and absurd policies that scream for reform.

Yet the media focuses almost entirely on skin color – when there is a difference in that one variable among the police and the suspect. Which is why, as Harris believes, you didn’t hear much about Timpa or any other white victims for that matter.  This — as stark statistics undermine the racial narrative at many turns.

If the media took its foot off the racial gas pedal and put it on the training and policy lever, we would not only make real progress in policing, we might even save a country – the greatest country that ever was. And the key word of that previous sentence is “was.”

We need police reform.

But also media reform, too.

It’s time to get moving and face facts. Literally.

OPINION OPED: Don’t bail out cities. Reopen them


Commentary by Rep. John Curtis & Jessica Anderson | June 14, 2020 12:00 AM

Misleadingly named the HEROES Act, the bill would give $500 billion in unrestricted funds to state governments and $375 billion to cities.

Let’s dispense with the myth that these bailouts are the best way to help local governments.

Many states and cities don’t need additional tax dollars beyond the direct coronavirus relief the federal government has already given. The federal government has already spent trillions to prop up various sectors of the country and given $200 billion to states alone. Some mayors and governors around the country are claiming it’s not enough — many of these same politicians, of course, have been running billions of dollars in the red for years. The pandemic didn’t cause that, and this bailout won’t solve their long-running deficit spending.

New York City, for instance, had a $198 billion deficit at the end of 2018. Now, the city is expecting a $7.4 billion budget shortfall from the coronavirus, but it’s asking for $17 billion in relief. Meanwhile, the city’s own comptroller says the city could cut government “fat” and balance the budget without layoffs.

As a congressman and proud former mayor of Provo, Utah, and a lifetime conservative grassroots leader, we share an appreciation for well-managed state and local governments. Provo’s net position, a measure of the city’s total financial health, increased by $19 million last year thanks to careful management and hard financial decisions. Provo, and Utah generally, planned ahead and will weather this pandemic far better. Utahns and people around the country know rainy-day funds are important for families and for businesses — governments should be no exception. Places like New York City may have to make cuts now, but it will serve them better in the long term than a Band-Aid bailout would.

Bill de Blasio and Nancy Pelosi want the federal government to tax you, bring the money to Washington, and then, after taking the federal government’s desired share, give it back to your city and state — we don’t think this is a good idea. Of course, some local politicians would love to shift the responsibility for taxes and debt to the federal government. But anyone paying attention knows unaccountable Washington bureaucrats are far worse at fairly distributing money than locally elected leaders closest to the people, such as mayors, city councils, governors, or state legislatures. These federal redistributions almost always come with a haircut and strings attached.

Not only are massive bailouts for cities an unnecessary expense, but they are also a poor policy response that rewards bad behavior and punishes responsibility.

Bailing out failing governments merely incentivizes poor management in the future. If this bailout passes, cities will have no reason to save for a rainy day if they think Uncle Sam will come and save them. While no city wants to cut expenses or go into bankruptcy, it’s important that bad choices have consequences. Further, cities in the worst financial shape rarely have tax problems — they have spending problems. New York City’s high sales, income, and property taxes, as well as fees and other revenue sources, bring in an astounding $90 billion per year. Clearly, the reason for the city’s deficit isn’t a lack of money coming in the door but rather years of irresponsible decisions and no desire to balance the budget.

Bailouts also promote poor management nowThe root cause of budget shortfalls is not the coronavirus itself — it’s economic lockdowns. Stay-at-home orders were a necessary response to COVID-19 in some areas early on, though Utah instead issued a “Stay Home, Stay Safe” directive and has been one of the least affected states in the country. But some cities, like New York, have kept their orders in place long after they “flattened the curve.” Overly cautious politicians want to have their cake and eat it too: keeping their cities locked down as long as possible while having the federal government pick up the tab. But every day they don’t take steps to reopen will prolong the road to recovery for the rest of the nation.

Finally, and most importantly, a bailout would unfairly punish responsible cities. Utahns shouldn’t pay extra for Bill de Blasio’s prodigal spending — neither should other cities and states. Cities that saved and acted responsibly shouldn’t pay for the failures of other cities to do so as well.

America was founded as a land of freedom and responsibility. Pelosi’s bill would undermine those ideals, forcing taxpayers around the nation to cover the shortfalls of cities that spent recklessly for decades. Lawmakers should keep that in mind and reject Pelosi’s massive bailout boondoggle.

Rep. John Curtis, a Republican, represents Utah’s 3rd congressional district and is the former mayor of Provo, Utah. Jessica Anderson is Executive Director of Heritage Action for America.

VIDEO: SUV Plows Through Line of POLICE in Major American City


Reported By Paul Duke | June 2, 2020

Despite the emotional levers that the mainstream media continues to pull on us, these have been mostly peaceful protests.  There is violence, and that’s what sticks with us because of its raw energy, but it is late at night, and not often accomplished with a protest sign held in one hand.

So, when we see these demonstrations turn awry, they turn very awry.  Things get sideways in a hurry.  It’s ferociously frantic, and frightening.  Oh, so very frightening.

The scene in Buffalo, New York this weekend was just that.

A video emerged Monday night that showed an SUV plowing through a line of officers responding to a George Floyd protest in Buffalo, N.Y., hitting at least one and speeding away.

John Evans, the PBA president, told reporters in the city that a trooper and officer were hit in the incident, according to Stephen Marth of Spectrum News Buffalo. They were rushed to a nearby hospital in serious condition. was just that.

Video of the incident was unreal.

If we’re lucky, this is the crescendo and not the new pace of play.

SHOCKING: More New Yorkers Died from Governor Cuomo’s Coronavirus Nursing Home Policy than Died on 9/11


Reported By Joe Hoft | Published May 21, 2020 at 7:39am

What a disaster!  The actions of New York’s governor Andrew Cuomo have led to thousands of coronavirus deaths in the state. A memo dated March 25, 2020, ordered state officials to move coronavirus patients to nursing homes.

It was New York state policy to put the sick patients back in the nursing home. This order has since been removed from the New York State Department of Health website.

More people died in nursing homes in New York, due to Governor Cuomo’s policies, than died on 9/11. 

Michael Goodwin at the New York Post reported this week:

Two weeks ago, Gov. ­Andrew Cuomo was first asked about his policy that forced nursing homes to admit ­patients infected with the coronavirus.

“That’s a good question, I don’t know,” the governor answered, turning to an aide.

On Tuesday, Cuomo was asked about a report from the Associated Press that his team had added more than 1,700 deaths to the count of those who died in nursing homes, bringing the total to at least 4,813.

“I don’t know the details, frankly,” the governor answered, turning to an aide.

Sgt. Schultz reporting for duty!

Cuomo is legendary for micromanaging and has been praised for his detailed daily briefings during the pandemic. He has closed schools, religious services and businesses because each human life is “priceless.”

So with known nursing home deaths representing 25 percent of all deaths in the state, it beggars belief that the governor didn’t know anything about his office’s fatal policy two weeks ago or the new death totals now.

The only way either could be true is through an extreme case of plausible deniability. Thus, if there’s no proof he knew, he can’t be held responsible, right? Which was the whole point of the Sgt. Schultz defense.

That was a sitcom. This is life and death.

According to NBC News, New York’s policies for nursing homes required the homes to take in individuals that had the coronavirus:

The coronavirus patients began arriving the last week of March, transferred to the Gurwin Jewish Nursing and Rehabilitation Center under a New York state mandate requiring nursing homes to accept those recovering from COVID-19, even if they still might be contagious.

The governor’s nursing home policy in New York ended up in thousands of deaths.

Nearly 3,000 names appear on the 9/11 Memorial. This is the list of individuals who were innocently murdered on 9/11 when terrorists took down New York’s World Trade Center’s Twin Towers.

Governor Cuomo created a list of more innocents murdered due to a policy requiring New York nursing homes to accept those with the China coronavirus than those murdered on 9/11.  What kind of individual could even think up such a policy?

New York Funeral Director Tells Project Veritas Independent Autopsy Revealed Hospital Falsely Attributed Death of Alzheimer’s Patient to COVID-19 (VIDEO)


Reported By Cassandra Fairbanks | Published May 3, 2020 at 7:30pm

Funeral directors have been contacting Project Veritas and asserting that deaths are being falsely attributed to coronavirus in order to inflate the number of deaths.

Project Veritas released phone calls with multiple funeral directors making the claim on April 30.

“Basically, every death certificate that comes across our desk now has COVID on it,” a funeral director in Williston Park, N.Y. told the organization.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe had put out a call seeking whistleblowers to come forward with any inconsistencies they were seeing. Another funeral director claims that they are labeling deaths as COVID for any respiratory distress — including pneumonia and the flu.

“They are putting COVID on a lot of death certificates because people who are going to their hospital with any kind of respiratory distress, respiratory problems, pneumonia, the flu — the flu-like symptoms lead into the COVID-19,” said Joseph Antioco of Schafer Funeral Home. “To me, all you’re doing is padding the statistics. You’re putting people on that have COVID-19 even if they didn’t have it. You’re making the death rate for New York City a lot higher than it should be.”

Another funeral director claimed that a sister of someone on the Supreme Court had a private autopsy conducted after being labeled as dying from COVID and tested negative.

“I had one that was autopsied because the sister was famous, and apparently, and I don’t know who the Supreme Court Justice is, but the Supreme Court Justice was related to this family, and she says I know my sister didn’t die of COVID-19,” said Josephine Dimiceli of Dimiceli & Sons Funeral Home. “She said she had Alzheimer’s and they didn’t suction her. You have to suction because they forget how to swallow. And right away they put down COVID-19 on her death certificate, and the Supreme Court justice, whoever it is, contacted the hospital. They did an independent autopsy; bingo. No COVID-19.”

Several other funeral directors shared similar stories.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

Left-wing officials angry that ‘anti-LGBTQ’ Franklin Graham, Samaritan’s Purse are helping NYC coronavirus victims. Officials get smacked right down.


Upon hearing the news that Samaritan’s Purse — the relief organization run by Christian evangelist Franklin Graham — is coming to the aid of coronavirus victims in New York City by setting up a temporary hospital in Central Park, a couple of officials were none too pleased.

Who are the officials, and what did they say?

First up was New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who tweeted a statement berating the development: “Franklin Graham has a long history of spewing anti-LGBTQ hate speech, and I find it extremely troubling that he and his organization are involved in our relief efforts in any way. New York City is known around the world for its embrace of diversity, and Franklin Graham has spent his career standing against these values. I will be monitoring this situation closely and making sure that our city’s values are being represented at all times.”

Then there was New York state Sen. Brad Hoylman, who tweeted that “it’s a shame that the federal government has left New York with no other choice but to accept charity from bigots.”In a statement on his official Senate page, Hoylman called Graham a “notorious anti-LGBTQ pastor”and said he put Graham “on notice” that Samaritan’s Purse must “treat all COVID-19 patients equally at the new medical tents.”

Here’s Hoylman’s full statement:

COVID-19 doesn’t discriminate, and neither should Franklin Graham. It’s unacceptable that a New Yorker infected with COVID-19 could be subjected to discriminatory treatment from an organization whose leader calls us “immoral” and “detestable.”

Today I’m calling on Franklin Graham to publicly assure LGBTQ New Yorkers that they will receive the same treatment as anyone else at the Central Park field hospital. The City of New York and the Mount Sinai hospital network must monitor conditions closely at Graham’s facility and ensure every single LGBTQ patient is treated fairly. We cannot abandon our moral compass in the middle of a pandemic.

Sadly, beggars can’t be choosers: New York needs every ventilator we can get. But homophobic pastor Franklin Graham and his field hospital operation in Central Park must guarantee all LGBTQ patients with COVID-19 are treated with dignity and respect.

We’ll be watching.

What was the reaction?

While Johnson and Hoylman tickled a few itching ears with their decidedly virtue-signaling statements, quite a few others found their words rather, er, prejudiced:

  • “The vast majority of voters see this as a group of well intended people bringing hope and light into a dark place right now. Put the partisan politics aside for a season and be thankful for the people willing to serve NYC. This is not the time to score political points sir.”
  • “Now we can all really see where the actual hate comes from.”
  • “As a gay New Yorker, I’d like to sit down with them over a cup of coffee and thank them for putting themselves in harm’s way. That’s how change of heart happens. They are risking their lives. We should be grateful.”
  • “It’s a shame that idiots like you would rather people die than have someone you don’t agree with help them.”
  • “Christians build a free hospital to help New Yorkers survive this crisis and you complain? Despicable.”
  • “Whose the bigot? Christians believe what they believe. Get over it. They love people they disagree with. Even you!”
  • “Let it go. They are compassionate and want to help. Now who’s the bigot?”
  • “Virtue-signaling boob.”
  • “And spare us your woke outrage. Holding a sincerely held religious belief about marriage (I personally think his scripture read is wrong) is not the same as hate speech. Your religious intolerance in the name of wokeness is a bigger threat to our republic.”
  • “It’s pretty clear who’s there to help New Yorkers and who’s there to mouth off on twitter and do absolutely nothing.”

How did Graham respond?

“We do not make distinctions about an individual’s religion, race, sexual orientation, or economic status. We certainly do not discriminate, and we have a decades-long track record that confirms just that,” Graham told NBC News in a statement. “This is a time for all of us to unite and work together, regardless of our political views. Let’s support one another during this crisis, and we pray that God will bless the efforts of all those battling this vicious virus.”

NY’s $15/Hr Min Wage Is Killing Mom And Pop Restaurants


Posted by | September 30, 2019

The city of New York is too expensive for many to afford, and the wage jump to $15/hr is not making things any easier. New York restaurant owners have had to make drastic changes to their businesses just to keep afloat and the customers are noticing. Big corporations might be able to take the hit in the profits but smaller restaurants can’t afford these wages without a serious drop in quality and staff reduction.

Gabriela’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar, a margarita and taco staple on the Upper West Side for the past 25 years, is closing at the end of September — and it has been a long, painful road downhill, according to its mom-and-pop owners.

Since the $15-an-hour minimum wage hit New York City in December, Liz and Nat Milner say, they’ve been forced to slash their full- and part-time staff to 45 people from 60. Quality has suffered, they admit, and customers have noticed: They’re not coming in like they used to, and when they do, they’re spending less.

“I’m not against people making more money,” Milner added. “These people have worked for me for 20 years. But taxes, groceries, everything is going up and people have a little less money to spend on guacamole and tequila.”

Gabriela’s isn’t alone. In a survey of 324 full-service restaurants, the New York City Hospitality Alliance found that 76.5 percent of respondents cut staff hours and 36.3 percent eliminated jobs, including whole layers of middle management, in response to mandated wage increases.

“It’s death by a thousand cuts,” says Andrew Rigie, executive director of the group. “The minimum-wage increases put pressure on small businesses. They are well-intended but unsustainable. There’s only so many times you can increase the price of a burger and a bowl of pasta.”

New York had a chance to bring in Amazon who would have happily paid workers $15/hr, but they can afford it. Now New York is just hurting the small family-run businesses which will eventually lead many businesses to leave the city or close. They reduced the job opportunities available to New Yorkers with this move, is this really helping?

Experts Have Chilling Prediction for Where De Blasio Is Taking NYC, Hasn’t Happened in 40 Years


Reported By Ben Marquis | Published March 12, 2019 at 2:53pm | Modified March 12, 2019 at 2:57pm

New York City has long been viewed by many as a dumpster fire of fiscal irresponsibility with ridiculously high taxes and insanely excessive spending, and under the past few years of leadership by the socialist, er, Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio, the situation has only gotten worse.

Recent reports citing economic experts have warned that the famed city could soon face the financial disaster of bankruptcy for the first time in more than 40 years, but it doesn’t appear that the city is doing much of anything to address that dire consequence, and instead is arguably making things even worse.

The New York Post reported last week that as businesses and residents flee the high taxes imposed on them by the city and state, resulting in entirely predictable tax revenue shortfalls, public spending has actually been increased instead of reduced as well, creating a sort of fiscal death spiral that could ruin the city.

Milton Ezrati, chief economist of financial communications agency Vested, told the Post, “The city is running a deficit and could be in a real difficult spot if we had a recession, or a further flight of individuals because of tax reform.”

“New York is already in a difficult financial spot, but it would be in an impossible situation if we had any kind of setback,” he added.

Such setbacks would include a financial recession, which could prove fiscally devastating, or even just a continuation of the exodus of taxpayers while spending continues to increase.

Indeed, Mayor de Blasio recently announced an additional $3 billion in new spending on top of a budget that already included $89.2 billion in spending.

Meanwhile, the mayor only found “savings” of about $750 million in his proposed budget for 2020 — obviously not enough to save the city in a disaster — and the state’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo cut roughly $600 million in city-related spending from his proposed state budget for the coming year.

The Post noted that the city’s spending has increased by 32 percent since de Blasio assumed office, about three times the rate of inflation, and has hired some additional 33,000 public sector workers who are paid with city funds and are granted long-term pensions and other city-funded benefits.

Peter C. Earle, economist at the American Institute for Economic Research, stated, “New York City could go bankrupt, absolutely.”

“In that case, the city would get temporary protection from its creditors, but it would be very difficult for the city to take on new debt,” he added.

City pensions, along with other long-term liabilities like bonded debt and other post-employment benefits for public workers, are estimated at more than a quarter trillion dollars, according to a 2018 report from the city’s Citizen’s Budget Commission, which placed the total liabilities held by New York City at roughly $257.3 billion for that year. That is nearly $5 billion more than the 2017 total of $252.5 billion, and works out to an astonishing liability per New York City household of $82,577.

The budget commission also noted that the city’s pension fund is only about 76 percent funded.

All of that news comes as residents are increasingly leaving the excessively taxed city and state for low-tax states like Florida and Texas, an exodus that has been partially blamed for the state’s announced $2.3 billion budget deficit caused by a shortfall in expected tax revenues, according to Fox News.

All the while, Cuomo is blaming the problem on the Trump administration and Republicans for the tax cut bill Trump signed in 2017, which reduced the amount of state and local taxes residents could deduct from their federal taxes and left some residents and businesses with a higher tax bill.

In response to the incredible shortfall, the state has decided not to reduce spending or do anything responsible like that, but to instead levy aggressive audits on the businesses and individuals leaving the state to try and soak them with a tax bill one last time for whatever they may be worth.

Unfortunately for New York, that aggressive effort will likely only encourage more top-earners and wealthy individuals to get out while they still can, and considering the fact that the top 1 percent in the state account for roughly half of all tax revenues, that could actually serve to hasten the potential financial disaster facing the city and state. New York City, and the state as well, were already fiscal dumpster fires.

But the financially irresponsible actions of their progressive leadership have only served to throw gasoline on the blaze, and the growing monetary inferno of high taxes, high spending and unfunded liabilities in the face of reduced tax revenues now threatens to engulf the city in bankruptcy.

Dems Turn on Each Other After Amazon Debacle, Ocasio-Cortez at the Center of It All


Reported By Benjamin Arie | Published February 16, 2019 at 3:28am

The Democrat party in New York seems to have finally found its arch-enemy: the Democrat party in New York.

In the latest in a series of bad public relations debacles for the liberal party, Democrat officials seem to have formed a circular firing squad of finger-pointing after retail giant Amazon announced they won’t be building a massive headquarters in the Empire state after all. The major employer had previously looked at several locations for a new campus, which would have been expected to bring billions in revenue and tens of thousands of jobs. Amazon, run by liberal billionaire Jeff Bezos, initially indicated that they’d be investing in New York, but it looks like that deal has fallen apart.

“After much thought and deliberation, we’ve decided not to move forward with our plans to build a headquarters for Amazon in Long Island City, Queens,” declared Amazon representative Jodi Seth, according to CNN.

The company went out of its way to make it known that politicians — many of them liberals — were at the center of their decision to pull out from the deal.

“(A) number of state and local politicians have made it clear that they oppose our presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationships that are required to go forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City,” the Amazon statement continued.

One of those politicians is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democrat socialist congresswoman who seemed to openly brag about … er, keeping 25,000 jobs out of the state she represents.

“Anything is possible: today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers & their neighbors defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” the socialist posted on Twitter, as if blocking new jobs were some great accomplishment.

Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, himself a Democrat, expressed much more frustration about the lost deal.

“We competed in and won the most hotly contested national economic development competition in the United States, resulting in at least 25,000-40,000 good paying jobs for our state and nearly $30 billion dollars in new revenue to fund transit improvements, new housing, schools and countless other quality of life improvements,” he pointed out, seeming to distance himself from those who were celebrating Amazon’s reversal.

The liberal governor didn’t call out Ocasio-Cortez by name but certainly seemed to direct some of his ire at the lost opportunity towards her.

“However, a small group politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,” he wrote.

“The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage,” Cuomo blasted. “They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

Once again, reality has reared its ugly head. It turns out that individuals and corporations alike are wary of high-tax, expensive states, and are willing to “vote with their feet” if an area isn’t offering them economic or tax advantages.

The idea that people avoid places that are hostile toward business and gravitate to locations that welcome them with pro-growth policies is Economics 101, but then again, politicians like Ocasio-Cortez seem clueless about even these basics.

As the young congresswoman continues to butt heads with fellow Democrats from Nancy Pelosi to Chuck Schumer and now Andrew Cuomo, it will be interesting to watch which way the liberal party slides in the coming months. Far left progressives like Ocasio-Cortez may have the media spotlight right now, but they may be in for a surprise if they keep angering power brokers on their own side of the aisle.

Student Attacked For Standing Up For What He Believes In.


Reported by 

URL of the original posting site: https://fearandblood.com/national/student-attacked-defending-second-amendment/

It seems that long have the days passed where students were able to freely voice their opinions. The educational system is so liberal that a conservative perspective is almost considered taboo. That’s what happened to High School student Christian Breault. He didn’t follow the Liberal Anti-Gun narrative and was attacked because he had an opposing opinion. 

The school, Middleburgh Junior/Senior High School in New York, had it’s students watch the Parkland students Anti Gun speech where Emma Gonzalez gave the We Call BS Speech.” The speech was played during an assembly held on the day of The National Walkout. The school also had local authorities come in and talk about safety and what to do if a shooting happened at their school. Breault did not agree with the Anti-gun message and talked to some fellow students, but he was overheard by a student who was wholeheartedly drinking the Liberal Koolaid. His father, Brian Breault, posted about the incident on Facebook.

Today the school my son, Christian, attends participated in the National School Walkout for Gun Control and School Safety. The school held an assembly after the walkout bringing in community leaders and law enforcement to speak. Toward the end of the assembly, they showed an Anti-NRA video vilifying the gun organization and its members (American citizens).

Following the dismissal of the assembly Christian engaged in a conversation with other students who felt the assembly was not handled well. Christian expressed he felt the Anti-NRA video was over the top and he found it offensive. Another student not involved in the conversation threatened him for his view on the video going as far as telling the school nurse that he would punch Christian in the face if he didn’t stop defending the NRA. The nurse told the student he could not say that and no further action was taken.”

But this was not the end of the incident as the anti-NRA student was clearly could not going to allow someone to have an opposing view. So later in the day, according to Christian Breault, the close-minded student attacked Breault. But just as he was strong in his convictions he was equally able to stand his ground in a fight.

Christian defended himself, punching the kid in the jaw, causing him to fall to the floor,” he told PJ Media. “The kid got up and threw an object at Christian, which he deflected.”

Watch The Sum Up Below.

The school suspended both students administering a one day to Christian and a 3-day to the aggressor. But Christian is concerned as he is an early enlistee in the Navy and doesn’t want a bad record to affect his chances.  But his father is upset as he feels it is wrong that his son is being penalized for defending himself. His father is also angry that they pushed a political video at school that slandered the NRA and gun rights.

The superintendent has at least agreed that the video was over the top.

Dear Middleburgh Central Schools community,

On Wednesday, March 14th, the Jr./Sr. High School held a school safety assembly for students. The purpose of the assembly was to give administrators and law enforcement the chance to speak with students regarding how the district handles school safety and answer any questions students may have had. During the assembly, a video was shown that changed the focus of the conversation from school safety to politics. This was not our desired outcome for the event, and we regret and sincerely apologize for that result.

Conversations are happening across America about how we can keep students safe in school. No matter where you stand on this issue, we can all agree that student safety should be our top priority.”

While it is a step in the right direction that the Superintendent apologized for the politically motivated video, the damage is already done. If the school wanted to make it right they should have a pro NRA video played explaining gun rights and why they should not be infringed upon. They should give students a full education on topics as opposed to simply following the Liberal approved agenda. But was Christian Breault in the wrong for defending himself? The school seems to blame him. Why should he be given any punishment for simply defending himself?

ISIS “Lone Wolf” Taunts New Yorkers With Chilling Selfies Taken in Their Midst


Reported By John Falkenberg | January 3, 2018 at 5:54pm

URL of the original posting site: https://conservativetribune.com/isis-lone-wolf-taunts-new-yorkers/

Authorities in New York are reportedly investigating what appears to be an Islamic State group-supporting young man taking “selfies” around New York City, specifically outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the One World Trade Center.

The images began circulating through social media over the previous weekend, according to Fox News, and their appearance has concerned countless thousands, if not millions.

According to the New York Daily News, “one of the images had the caption ‘We are in your own Backyard,’” said Eric Feinberg, the co-founder of GIPEC, a cyber-intelligence firm that monitors potential terrorist activity on social media. That’s certainly cause for some concern.

The above image from Twitter shows a young man wearing cold weather clothing with Islamic State branding on it. The purpose of such a photo is obvious: to instill fear in the hearts of the American people.

The Islamic State group wants to inspire lone wolves to believe that they are not alone, and that if they attack, they’ll be participating in the take-down of the United States, rather than the final gasps of the shell of a terrorist organization. Should they be foolish enough to believe that, they’ll pay for it dearly. Thanks to President Donald Trump, his administration, and the men and women of our armed forces, the Islamic State group is very quickly approaching “history textbook footnote” status.

Their antics may be slightly intimidating, but it’s important to keep in mind that the image above may well have been doctored.

“Maybe it’s Photoshopped, maybe it’s not. It should be taken seriously,” Feinberg said.

And this potential lone wolf is being taken very seriously. While a NYPD spokesman didn’t call the threat “credible,” he did say the matter was being looked into.

“The NYPD is aware of the photograph. As with all terror related threats, the NYPD is looking into the incident. At this time there are no credible threats related to New York City,” an NYPD spokesman said Tuesday night according to the New York Daily News.

It’s a dumb terrorist who deliberately provokes the boys in blue.

While leftist may crow that the United States has a mandate to keep its proverbial doors wide open to whoever would like to enter, incidents like these tell us a very different — and far more factual — story.

Russia: Factual Error in Manafort Indictment Shows Case Was ‘Cooked Up’


Reported By Brianna Young | October 31, 2017 at 3:31pm | Source(s): NBC News, NBC News, and Los Angeles Times

URL of the original posting site: https://www.westernjournalism.com/russia-factual-error-manafort-indictment-shows-case-cooked/

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his top deputy, Rick Gates, are facing serious charges regarding the consulting business Manafort used to operate. Manafort and Gates have been indicted on 12 charges, including “conspiracy against the United States,” “conspiracy to launder money” and “false statements.”

But now, Russia is claiming the allegations against both men are “cooked up” and not part of a “serious investigation.” The Russian foreign ministry cited what they say is one glaring factual discrepancy in the 31-page indictment: the fact that the indictment referred to Yulia Tymoshenko as the former president of Ukraine.

Tymoshenko served twice as Ukraine’s prime minister before being imprisoned in 2011 on embezzlement charges, according to NBC News.

“I liked a lot the bit that, it turns out, according to the recent findings of American enforcers, the Ukrainian president before (Viktor) Yanukovych was Yulia Tymoshenko,” said Russian foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

Zakharova claims this one error puts the entire document’s validity into question.

“This is a very important moment showing the way how, once again, this document had been made, cooked up,” Zakharova said. “You understand when you talk about serious investigation one cannot allow things like that.”

The indictment against Manafort and Gates claims that both men made of millions of dollars thanks to their lobbying efforts in Ukraine.

They, in addition to George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign policy adviser who pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI, are the first people to be charged as part of the ongoing investigation into Russia’s meddling in last year’s election.

Papadopoulos’ guilty plea led the White House to immediately distance itself from him. President Donald Trump even tweeted that hardly anyone knew who Papadopoulos was.

The White House said Monday that the indictments against Manafort have nothing to do with the president, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. As for the charges against Manafort, NBC reported they are going to be tough to beat.

“It’s a very strong case, of course it’s not about last year’s election, but they have a long list of transactions and they have a lot of facts to support the indictment,” said Jennifer Rodgers, a former assistant U.S. attorney in New York.

But if Russian officials can cast doubt into the validity of the indictment, it may give Manafort the leverage he needs.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has already claimed on several occasions the country did not meddle in the 2016 election.

Breaking: Female Cop Assassinated by Cop Hater in ‘Unprovoked Attack’


Video of Alexander Bonds, 34, walking out of a store in New York’s Fordham Heights neighborhood – at 12:30 AM on Wednesday – show him B-lining it to Officer Miosotis Familia’s mobile command unit and firing a single shot to her head.

Dressed in all black from head to toe, Bonds then made a run for it.

The officer’s partner called for backup.

“Shots fired!” you can ear the officer scream on an audio recording. “I need a f—ing bus! 10-85 10-85! My partner’s shot! My partner’s shot! My partner’s shot! Hurry up central!”

Two cops responding to the call caught up with Bonds and shot him dead after he pulled a revolver on them.

He was killed when the two cops fired back, with an innocent bystander wounded in the crossfire.

The suspect’s silver revolver was recovered at the scene. The unidentified victim was standing next to Bonds, but had no connection to the killer, sources said. It was unclear if he was shot by the suspect or police.screen-shot-2017-07-05-at-1-30-44-pm

NY Daily News

Familia, a 12 year veteran of the NYPD, was pronounced dead at the hospital a few hours later.

After seeing Officer Miosotis Familia sitting in her police cruiser, Bonds walked up to her without cause and fired a single shot into her face, killing her.

His actions are not against his character. Bonds has an extensive rap sheet, of which one offense is assaulting a cop with brass knuckles back in 2001. His social media is also flooded with anti-police comments.

According to Heavy: Bonds made several posts about police on his Facebook page in the past year.

In another post seemingly about police, in October, he wrote, “Its because they feel the above what they should which is the law but they are not the law SMFH.”

In September 2016, he posted a video titled “Mad as Hill,” in which he talked about police and his time in prison.

A transcript of the video:

“Police man. Those that been up north know man, that police is f*ggots,” he said. “Don’t think every brother, cousin, uncle you got that get killed in jail is because of a blood or crip or Latin King killing them. Nah, police be killing them and saying that an inmate killed them.”

Also in the video, Bonds says, “I’m not playing, Mr. officer. I don’t care about 100 police watching this. … I got broken ribs for a reason, son, we gonna shake. We gonna do something. We can’t be dying for free, getting raped for free, just for them to give you hush money. Is you stupid? I don’t want the money. I want justice. … I’m not hesitating. It ain’t happening. I wasn’t a bitch in jail and I’m not going to be a bitch in these streets.”

His activity on Facebook continues to show his disdain for cops.

A few days earlier, Bonds shared a video of a police officer calling out “criminal cops,” and wrote, “That ain’t nothing new.”

He also shared a video of a police officer in Merced, California, stopping a teen on a bicycle that was posted by Media Takeout with the title, “Tiny Offcer Tries To BRUTALIZE Teen . . . And FAILS!!”

He wrote, “She don’t even know u fuxk u mean,” as the caption.

In January, Bonds “liked” a Facebook page titled “Return Judy Clark to Our Community,” a group that supports the release of Judith Clark, a member of the Weather Underground convicted of felony murder in the 1981 Brink’s armored car robbery that left a security guard and two Nyack, New York, police officers dead. Governor Andrew Cuomo granted Clark clemency in December, moving her parole date up.

It also seems like he was a Hillary supporter.

In November, just before Election Day, he shared a conspiracy video from Occupy Democrats that claimed voting machines were changing Hillary Clinton votes to Trump.

“Watch out also go vote our voices matter believe that if I could I kno u would,” he wrote.

This cop shooting is very similar to the December 2014 assassination of two officers. Both officers were sitting in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were targeted by a gunman who had posted anti-police messages on his social media feeds in the days before the shooting, officials said.

The officer was shot less than two miles away from where Sgt. Paul Tuozzolo was murdered by an armed ex-con in November.

Nationwide String of Violent Crimes Involving Illegal Aliens. Four-time deported MS-13 gangster rapes toddler, stabs two women


Reported by Edmund Kozak | Updated 27 Mar 2017 at 7:23 AM

URL of the original posting site: http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/nationwide-string-of-violent-crimes-involving-illegal-aliens/

An MS-13 gang member who was previously deported four times was arrested on Long Island, New York, last week for sexually assaulting a two-year-old girl and stabbing two women. Police suspect 31-year-old Tommy Vladim Alvarado-Ventura, an illegal alien from El Salvador, sexually assaulted his victim on Tuesday night while her mother was at work.

After the assault, the suspect is said to have gone to a bar where he stabbed a woman over a dispute about marijuana. Upon returning home early Wednesday morning, the two-year-old victim’s mother noticed injuries to her daughter and confronted Alvarado-Ventura, who then stabbed her as well. Alvarado-Ventura plead not guilty to the crimes Thursday.

The crime is “probably the most heinous criminal act I’ve ever seen. It really is nauseating,” acting Nassau County Police Commissioner Thomas Krumpter said at a news conference Thursday.

Alvarado-Ventura was deported to El Salvador four times between 2006 and 2011, police confirmed, and had a record which included arrests for assault, contempt of court, drunk driving, disorderly conduct, and false impersonation.

The horrific crime comes on the heels of news that illegal alien Henry Sanchez-Millian, an 18-year-old Guatemalan, and Jose Montano, a 17-year-old from El Salvador, brutally raped a 14-year-old classmate during school hours in Rockville, Maryland.

The pair of incidents follow a spate of recent heinous sex crimes involving illegal aliens, forcing increased press attention nationwide.

 

In early March, 19-year-old Guatemalan Douglas Hus-Flores was arrested in Stamford, Connecticut, after sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl. That same week, 29-year-old Jorge Zapata-Rosas was arrested in Texas for raping a seven-year-old girl.

19-year-old illegal alien Kevin Cisneros was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Trenton, New Jersey, for the sexual assault of a 14-year-old and 44-year-old illegal alien Mateo Campos-Garcia was arrested in Rowan County, North Carolina, for indecent liberties with a child and a first-degree sexual offense.

Also, in March, Border Patrol agents apprehended at least three convicted illegal alien sex offenders trying to re-enter the United States. Zeferino Galindo-Lopes, 32, Francisco Bravo-Ruelas, 38, and Rene Murillo-Almansa, 46, were arrested in Arizona. All three had convictions for serious sexual offenses involving children.

In just January and February of this year, North Carolinians for Immigration Reform and Enforcement (NCFIRE), which tracks sex crimes committed by illegal aliens, identified 40 illegal aliens charged with over 85 sexual offenses in just the Tar Heel State.

An NYPD report titled “Crime and Enforcement Activity in New York City” from 2015, the latest year for which one is publicly available, shows Hispanics accounted for 31.2 percent of murder arrests, 30.1 percent of robbery arrests, 33.7 percent of felonious assault arrests, 28.7 percent of grand larceny arrests, and 28.1 percent of shooting arrests respectively.

These numbers align relatively closely to the city’s Hispanic population — which according to the Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey was 29 percent of its inhabitants. However, of the arrests for various sexual offenses, Hispanics made up a significantly higher percentage. Hispanics accounted for 41 percent of misdemeanor sex crime arrests, 42.6 percent of rape arrests, and nearly half — 47.3 percent — of other felonious sex crime arrests, the NYPD report shows.

In addition to being a child rapist, Alvarado-Ventura is a suspected member of the brutal MS-13 gang, whose increased violent activities have been reported on in various parts of the nation.

On March 2, 13 MS-13 gang members, 10 of whom are illegal aliens, were indicted for a string of crimes including the murders of two area teenagers. That same week, two MS-13 gang members in Houston, Texas were arrested for murdering a teenage girl during asatanic ritual.

Three weeks ago, Immigration and Customs Enforcement issued detainers for six MS-13 members in Virginia involved in the January killing of 15-year-old Damaris Alexandra Reyes Rivas of Gaithersburg, Maryland. Two other bodies, suspected victims of the vicious gang, were discovered in Virginia only days before the detainers were issued.

New York State High School Uses Trump, Mussolini, Hitler to Teach Fascism Lesson


Authored By Andrew West March 22, 2017

fascism

In the case of President Donald Trump, it seems that his opponents are relying only on their unhealthy obsession with history’s greatest villains to defame the leader of the free world.

As with any other enemy of the left, Trump is apparently Hitler.  This is the same ridiculous and tired argument that liberals and democrats make every single time they disagree with a republican politician.  If the accusations weren’t so completely predictable, they could possibly carry some weight, but the fact that calling someone “Hitler” in the leftists’ nuclear option, you’d think they’d save it for more important battles.

But, no.  The left is completely happy attempting, over and over again, to tag Trump as a fascist, with no other argument other than their pathetic name-calling.

Now, one teacher in New York State has taken the unacceptable name-calling of our President to the next level, and is indoctrinating her 10th grade students with an absurdly biased curriculum.

“A tenth grade teacher at Saratoga Springs High School led a discussion on the rise of fascism during World War Two by referencing President Trump.

‘“It’s total indoctrination,’ said Melissa, the parent who contacted me. She asked that I not use her last name. ‘It’s not their place to indoctrinate our children. It’s their job to teach the facts. Healthy debate is one thing but this definitely crossed the line.’

“The entire lesson plan was posted on the school district’s website. But once I started poking around and asking questions, the lesson was hidden behind a password protected wall.

“’Trump has absolutely no relation to World War Two. There’s no reason why he should be included with Stalin, Mussolini or Hitler,’ the mom said. They are trying to link him to the leaders of that time. That crosses a line.’

“Another graphics listed ‘early warning signs of fascism’:

“·      Nationalism

·      Obession with national security

·      Religion and government intertwined

·      Rampant sexism

·      Fraudulent elections

·      Obsession with crime and punishment”

Of course, the absurdity of these claims determines that they will be easily dismissed by level-headed adults.  The true issue here, as one parent put it, is the indoctrination of our youth into these haphazard patterns of thought.  These malleable teens should be coaxed into forming their own opinions about the world around them and the nation that they live in.  They should never be forced into one pattern of thought just because that pattern syncs up with the delusions of their teachers.

SHE MADE IT UP: NYPD Arrests Muslim Girl Who Claimed Attack by Trump Supporters

2016-12-15_6-50-14New York City college student Yasmin Seweid who claimed to be the victim of a hate crime by Trump supporters is under arrest and charged with filing a false report, a police source told The New York Daily News.

The 18-year-old Seweid caused quite the media stir with her sensationalized account of Trump supporters attacking her on the subway. She claimed three men attempted to pull off her hijab while calling her a terrorist and yelling Trump’s name. All this happened, she said, while New Yorkers sat idly by and watched her get assaulted.

The police source told The News that police gave Seweid numerous opportunities to recant her story but she kept sticking to it. Finally, on Wednesday, she admitted she made the whole thing up, citing “family problems.”

Police say there were many inconsistencies in her story initially, but at first they assumed that could be a typical sign of being traumatized. They also claim the investigation into the false hate crime required “a lot” of resources.

Do you remember the New York couple, who was sued for their refusal to host a same-sex marriage ceremony on their property?  Not only was this their property, it was their home.   They live in the barn they built on their property, and would sometimes host weddings there.  

An appeals court just ruled that their refusal to host the union of a same-sex couple, in their own home, was discriminatory. They were fined $13,000, and to top it off – they were ordered to attend “re-education training classes” to counter their religious beliefs on marriage as a sacred union between a man and woman.pure socialism

What is happening to the United States of America?

CNSNews reports:

“After the agency ruled that the Giffords were guilty of ‘sexual orientation discrimination,’ it fined them $10,000, plus $3,000 in damages and ordered them to implement re-education training classes designed to contradict the couple’s religious beliefs about marriage,” a press release issued following the court decision stated.pure socialism

In order to comply with the order, the couple will have to attend those “re-training” classes or have a “trainer” come to them, according to ADF.Big Gay Hate Machine

“All Americans should be free to live and work according to their beliefs, especially in our own backyards,” ADF legal counsel Caleb Dalton, who argued before the court on behalf of the couple in Gifford v. Erwin, said in a statement. “The government went after both this couple’s freedom and their ability to make a living simply for adhering to their faith on their own property.”

California Joins the Effort to Persecute, Suppress Scientific Dissent on Climate Change


waving flagReported by Hans von Spakovsky / / January 21, 2016

Perhaps we should investigate what California Attorney General Kamala Harris “knows” about global warming or climate change, which Harris treats as if it is a proven, unassailable, incontrovertible fact. (Photo: Hector Amezcua/ZUMA Press/Newscom)

Tyranney AlertHans von Spakovsky is an authority on a wide range of issues—including civil rights, civil justice, the First Amendment, immigration, the rule of law and government reform—as a senior legal fellow in The Heritage Foundation’s Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies and manager of the think tank’s Election Law Reform Initiative. Read his research.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has joined New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in trying to prosecute ExxonMobil for supposedly lying to its shareholders and the public about climate change, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Times reported that Harris is investigating what ExxonMobil “knew about global warming and what the company told investors.”What did you say 07.jpg

Neither Harris nor Schneiderman recognizes the outrageousness of what they are doing—which amounts censoring or restricting speech and debate on what is a contentious scientific theory. In fact, they want not just to stop anyone who questions the global warming theory from being able to speak; they want to punish them with possible civil sanctions or even criminal penalties. As I said before about Schneiderman, Harris needs a remedial lesson in the First Amendment.

Perhaps we should investigate what Harris “knows” about global warming or climate change, which Harris (and Schneiderman) treats as if it is a proven, unassailable, incontrovertible fact.  However, as the Heritage Foundation’s Nicolas Loris has pointed out, “flaws discovered in the scientific assessment of climate change have shown that the scientific consensus is not as settled as the public had been led to believe.”Solid-Foundation-600-wLogo

According to Loris, leaked emails and documents from various universities and researchers have “revealed conspiracy, exaggerated warming data, possibly illegal destruction and manipulation of data, and attempts to freeze out dissenting scientists from publishing their work in reputable journals.” Furthermore, the “gaffes” that have been exposed in the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports “have only increased skepticism” about the credibility of this scientific theory.Settled-Science-600-LA

These investigations are reminiscent of the old Soviet Union, where Joseph Stalin persecuted those who he thought had the “wrong” scientific views on everything from linguistics to physics.  Besides sending them a copy of the Constitution so they can review the First Amendment, residents of both New York and California might also want to include a copy of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s book, “In the First Circle,” in which he outlined the Soviet government’s suppression of dissenting scientists and engineers.

What makes this even worse is the fact that other public officials also want those who question this scientific theory investigated, prosecuted, and punished. According to the Times story, these include Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., and Rep. Mark DeSaulnier, D-Calif., who have sent letters to U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Securities and Exchange Commission “calling for federal investigation of securities fraud and violations of racketeering, consumer protection, truth in advertising, public health, shareholder protection or other laws.”Baal Worship

Godfather of the Green MafiaBut then, criminal investigations of climate change dissenters have been also called for by academics and other officials, among them former Vice President Al Gore. Maybe these politicians and their allies would favor passing a modern version of the Alien and Sedition Act, perhaps renamed the Global Warming Sedition Act. Just like the 1798 law, it could punish “false, scandalous, and malicious writing” against the climate change theory.

The bottom line is that the state attorneys general of New York and California are not acting like level-headed, objective prosecutors interested in the fair and dispassionate administration of justice. They are instead acting like Grand Inquisitors who must stamp out any heresy that doubts the legitimacy of the climate change religion. They are treating an unproven scientific theory as if it is a creed than cannot be questioned, probed, examined, or doubted.

Will Your City or State be the Next San Bernardino? At Least 22 Verified Islamic Terror Training Camps in US – All Under the Watchful Eye of the FBI

Islam is NOT

While the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues to investigate 1,000 ISIS-tied individuals in the united States, there are at least 22 paramilitary Islamic communities in the US that they know of, but are not doing anything about. Now, the stage has been set for more Islamic jihad attacks on US soil under the watchful eye of the FBI.

The groups are operated by Jamaat al-Fuqra, a Pakistan-based group, who main front group is Muslims of the Americas.

Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani, a Pakistani cleric, heads up the group in Islamberg, New York. The communes operated by the organization are in mostly remote areas of California, Georgia, South Carolina, New York, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, Michigan, Tennessee and other states.

 Will Your City or State be the Next San Bernardino? At Least 22 Verified Islamic Terror Training Camps in US – All Under the Watchful Eye of the FBI

The Clarion Project reported on these camps:

The organization says it has a network of 22 “villages” around the U.S., with Islamberg as its main headquarters in New York. Clarion Project obtained secret MOA footage showing female members receiving paramilitary training at Islamberg. It was featured on theKelly File on FOX News Channel in October. A second MOA tape released by Clarion shows its spokesman declaring the U.S. to be a Muslim-majority country.

2007 FBI record states that MOA members have been involved in at least 10 murders, one disappearance, three firebombings, one attempted firebombing, two explosive bombings and one attempted bombing. It states:

“The documented propensity for violence by this organization supports the belief the leadership of the MOA extols membership to pursue a policy of jihad or holy war against individuals or groups it considers enemies of Islam, which includes the U.S. Government. Members of the MOA are encouraged to travel to Pakistan to receive religious and military/terrorist training from Sheikh Gilani.”Do you want

The document also says that, “The MOA is now an autonomous organization which possesses an infrastructure capable of planning and mounting terrorist campaigns overseas and within the U.S.”

Other FBI reports describe the MOA in similar ways, with a 2003 file stating, “Investigation of the Muslims of the Americas is based on specific and articulate facts giving justification to believe they are engaged in international terrorism…”

MOA members believe the holiest Islamic site in the country is located at their Islamville commune in South Carolina. Other MOA entities include the International Quranic Open UniversityUnited Muslim Christian Forum, Islamic Post, Muslim Veterans of America and American Muslim Medical Relief Team.

An Islamic commune in Mahmoudberg, Texas has been around since the early 1980s and one member of the group was shot and killed in a reported “accident,” as one member returned fire to what they claim were people harassing them. Several members have used false aliases, Social Security numbers and birth certificates, according to two FBI documents from 1992.America Never Forget

Practice of Deception

Pamela Geller, author of Stop the Islamization of America, says that the communes are mostly made up of Blacks who converted to Islam while in federal prison and have operated “under the not-so-watchful eye” of the FBI since the early 80

However, the real question is why are they allowed to operate? At the time of the writing of the Clarion Project’s article, MOA was designated as a terrorist organization. In 2005, Jamaat ul-Fuqra was also listed by Homeland Security as a possible sponsor of a terrorist attack on the US, and in 1998, the State Department’s Patterns of Global Terrorism report described the group as an “Islamic sect that seeks to purify Islam through violence.” 

In January 2002, the State Department was asked why MOA was no longer listed in their annual terrorism reports. Here was the reply:

“Jamaat ul-Fuqra has never been designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. It was included in several recent annual terrorism reports under ‘other terrorist groups,’ i.e., groups that had carried out acts of terrorism but that were not formally designated by the Secretary of State. However, because of the group’s inactivity during 2000, it was not included in the most recent terrorism report covering that calendar year.”of domenstic terrorist

The obvious question is why have these groups, with anti-American sentiments and violent intentions been allowed to grow under the supervision of the FBI?

I’ll venture a guess that it is because the Muslim Brotherhood has infiltrated the federal government in a similar manner to Communists and are working hand in hand for the destruction of America.

The next San Bernardino, Garland, or Oklahoma is just waiting to happen, but will it occur in your city or state, and are you prepared to deal with the Islamists when they strike? Or, are you more willing to take the Constitutional approach to cut Islam off at the knees and deal with those that adhere to it as those engaged in sedition? The choice is yours.

Obamacare Leaving Hundreds of Cancer Patients Without Insurance


waving flagPosted by Rusty

According to a New York Post report, hundreds of cancer patients with the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Manhattan face the prospect of losing their insurance this week thanks to the collapse of Health Republic, the nation’s largest, and New York’s only Obamacare co-op.

Approximately 250 cancer patients will need to find new insurance that Sloan Kettering accepts by November 15th, or face the prospect of paying for their care out-of-pocket.

Via the New York Post:

Some 250 patients receiving treatment at Memorial Sloan Mar 3 13Kettering Cancer Center are facing a crisis because they signed up with the only ObamaCare insurer in New York that provides coverage at the world-renowned hospital — and the insurer is going bust.

Now the patients either have to find new insurers and doctors or pay higher out-of-pocket costs for extended care at Sloan.

State regulators are removing Health Republic Insurance of New York from the ObamaCare exchange as of Nov. 30 because the company is gushing red ink — losing more than $130 million in 18 months.

The state Department of Financial Services is advising customers to shop for new policies by Nov. 15, to ensure coverage for the rest of this year as well as next.

State law will allow the cancer patients to get coverage for 60 days after their plan expires on the 15th, but Sloan Kettering is requesting that the state extend that to a full year.

Making matters worse, up until this point no other Obamacare exchange has reached an agreement with Sloan Kettering, Really with logomeaning there simply aren’t any options out there for these hundreds of cancer patients.

In all, the shuttering of Health Republic has left 215,000 Obamacare customers in New York scrambling to find new, and likely less affordable plans.

This disaster has been on the horizon for some time, as Health Republic consistently operated in the red despite receiving $355 million in taxpayer funded low-cost loans.  They lost at least $80 million this past year despite those loans.

Obamacare SuppositoriesAs Betsy McCaughey explained after word of Health Republic’s demise came to light, this is a nationwide problem:

Congress loaned a whopping $2.5 billion of taxpayers’ money to Health Republic of New York and 22 other boondoggle insurance co-ops, even after being warned by its own budget experts that many co-ops would fail and not repay the loans. How carelessly politicians spend other people’s money.

Congressman Chris Gibson has called for an investigation into what happened with Health Republic and the state’s role in failing to properly oversee the disaster. Gibson told Time Warner Cable News that the co-op’s failure could be the start of a trend that leads to the collapse of the insurance market.

“This failure represents about 20 percent of the individuals Communistin New York state that went to the market for insurance,” Gibson said.  “If this trend continues it’s going to be destabilizing for market.”

“We need to know what happened.”

Governor Cuomo has pointed the finger at the Obama administration instead, saying they’ve been working closely with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Pristine Bible Page Found Fused To 9/11 Steel — What It Says Left Us In Awe


waving flagPosted on October 16, 2015 by Dom the Conservative

In March 2002, an unnamed firefighter discovered a fragment of rubble from the World Trade Center under Tully Road, a temporary truck route covering the remnants of the south tower, the New York Times reports.

Embedded in the metal was a damaged Bible, torn and singed from the horrific catastrophe. After he read the remaining words, he called over a nearby photographer, Joel Meyerowitz, to document the unbelievable message.

“Retaliation.”

“Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.”

Pristine Bible Page Found Fused To 9/11 Steel — What It Says Left Us In Awe

 

Of all the thousands of message within the holy book, Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, in the Gospel of Matthew, remained perfectly intact.

“This shredded, burned and rubble-covered Bible came to me from the loving hands of a fireman who knew that I was the record keeper of ground zero,” Mr. Meyerowitz said Thursday in an e-mail from Italy, where he now lives.

“My astonishment at seeing the page that the Bible was open to made me realize that the Bible’s message survives throughout time,” he said, “and in every era we interpret its teachings freshly, as the occasion demands.”

The chilling message not only accurately sums up the Islamic wrath upon New York City, but it prophetically warns America what will happen if it embraces its enemies — namely Islam.

Sharia law operates on an “eye for an eye” basis, as the Quran states that retaliation is commanded by Allah.

And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is legal retribution. [Quran 5:45]

The Islamic supremacy that spurred the event on 9/11 was in perfect accordance with Sharia law, Allah’s law. The retribution that the Muslim world felt was deserved came in the form terrorism against innocent Americans.

However, the Muslim world doesn’t see unbelievers as innocent. The Quran states numerous times that Allah has a hatred for non-Muslims and that the jihadists who fight with their lives against the unbelievers will be rewarded.

Although Jesus Christ preached and modeled a life a love, forgiveness, and peace, the Islamic Prophet Muhammad, who all Muslims are called to emulate, practiced pedophilia, racism, slavery, rape, murder, and conquest. The two doctrines are not only incompatible, they are complete opposites.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, this message serves as a warning to the U.S. We have invited in the very religious and political ideology that commands the overthrow of our Constitution and establishment of Sharia law.

Ann Coulter Letter: “How to Write a New York Times Op-Ed in Three Easy Steps”

How to Write a New York Times Op-Ed in Three Easy Steps

Today we’ll talk about how to write a New York Times op-ed in 45 minutes or less. We all like labor-saving tips!The main point to keep in mind is that your op-ed is not intended to elucidate, educate or amuse. These are status pieces meant to strike a pose, signaling that you are a good person.After reading your op-ed, readers should feel the warm sensation of being superior to other people — those who don’t agree with you. The idea is to be in fashion. It’s all about attitude, heavy on eye-rolling.

 

(1) Psychoanalyze conservatives as paranoid and insecure.

Liberals — who, to a man, have been in psychoanalysis — enjoy putting people they disagree with on the operating table and performing a vivisection, as if conservatives are some lower life form. 

Thus, for example, an op-ed in this week’s Times by Arthur Goldwag was titled “Putting Donald Trump on the Couch.”

This should not be confused with Justin A. Frank’s 2004 book, “Bush on the Couch,” offering a detailed diagnosis of Bush’s alleged mental disorders.

Nor should it be confused with a column that went up on Daily Kos the day after I wrote this column, psychoanalyzing me. (I’m just glad I snubbed the guy in high school.)

Goldwag explained: “Mr. Trump’s angry certainty …”

Let’s pause right here. I am obsessed with Donald Trump. I wish I could cancel my book tour and just lie in bed watching his speeches all day long. I’m like a lovesick teenager studying Justin Bieber videos. And I’ve never seen Trump look angry.

(Goldwag continued) ” … that immigrants and other losers are destroying the country while the cultural elites that look down on him stand by and do nothing resonates strongly with the less-educated, lower-income whites who appear to be his base.”

Yes, Trump’s base are “less-educated.” This is as opposed to Democratic voters, who couldn’t figure out how to fill in a Florida ballot in 2000.

True, writing like this will expose your own gigantic paranoia at being excluded from historic WASP America. If you start obsessing over the Augusta National Golf Club (as the Times did for one solid decade), people will naturally begin to suspect that you’re resentful toward traditional American culture.

But I am not giving lessons in self-esteem here. I’m trying to help you dash off an op-ed in record time. Psychoanalysis has been liberals’ go-to move forever.

Following the 1964 presidential election, the American Psychiatric Association was forced to issue “the Goldwater rule,” prohibiting shrinks from psychoanalyzing people they’d never met, after a few thousand of them had issued their professional opinion that Barry Goldwater was nuts. (A “frightened person,” “paranoid,” “grossly psychotic” and a “megalomaniac.”)

Some Times writer probably produced an op-ed calling Calvin Coolidge “paranoid.”

It’s not very interesting, but, again, the sole purpose of your op-ed is to assure the status-anxious that they are better than other people.

(2) The perfect hack phrase is to say conservatives are “frightened of the country changing around them.”

Examples:

– “The Tea Party, to be most benign about it, is primarily white, it is witnessing a country changing around it. It feels angry, feels — the diversity.” — Katrina Vanden Heuvel, MSNBC, May 24, 2012

(You want angry? Go to an Al Sharpton rally.)

– “Old white guys (are) caught in a demographic vice, right? (They) are frankly a little nervous, right? The country is changing around them. … The country is becoming more brown, and more — younger. And the values are changing. Gay rights, women are working. I mean all of these things are happening and they are not quite sure what to do.” — Jamal Simmons, MSNBC, June 15, 2013

– “I don’t think these are organized hate groups. These are, by and large, more or less everyday citizens who are very fearful of the way the world is changing around them.” — Mark Potok, (spokesman for the country’s leading hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center) in “Changing World Draws Racist Backlash,” The Philadelphia Tribune, June 28, 2010

I thought it was a nice gesture that Mark admitted that conservatives are not “organized hate groups.” We owe you one, Mark! You’re a super guy.

(3) Call conservatives “aggrieved” as often as possible.

Yes, this from the party of reparations, #BlackLivesMatter, comparable worth, “Lean In,” the DREAM Act and so on. If the Democratic Party were a reality TV show, it would be called “America’s Got Grievances!”

Examples:

– “‘We don’t have victories anymore,’ Mr. Trump told those deeply aggrieved Americans in June.” — Arthur Goldwag, op-ed: “Putting Donald Trump on the Couch,” The New York Times, Sept. 1, 2015

– “Mr. Bush has to win over a fair chunk of the aggrieved, frightened Trump voters.” — New York Times editorial, Aug. 26, 2015

– “You have this aggrieved conservative industry that makes their money by being aggrieved.” — John Feehery, Republican spokesman for former Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, quoted in New York Times, Jan. 15, 2015

You’re doing this not just for the $75 you’ll make for writing a Times op-ed. Dreadful hacks meet a need.

A lot of people are followers by nature. They just want to be told: Here are the politicians you admire, and here are the ones you disdain; here are the people you worship, and here are the ones you disparage; here are the TV shows you like, and here are the ones you despise.

Times writers are like personal shoppers for people too lazy to form their own opinions. Just don’t imagine that this is good writing, comedy or art. But it’s not bad for something you can dash off in about 45 minutes!

Fast Food Workers Will Soon Be Earning the Same as Paramedics in NY

Fast Food Minimum Wage Hike

Not lovin’ it

Thanks to Governor Cuomo’s fast-food minimum wage board, a three-member panel charged with coming to a pre-determined conclusion on a wage hike, your entry level McDonald’s worker will soon be making $15 an hour, the same hourly rate as a paramedic.

Via the Wall Street Journal:

New York state’s fast-food wage board on Wednesday is expected to recommend raising the fast-food minimum wage to $15 an hour, and the state’s labor commissioner is expected to approve that recommendation, according to a person familiar with the board’s plans.

The move is fairly unusual: While other cities have raised the minimum wage to $15, it is uncommon for a state to do so for only one industry.

“We’re all scared, I have to admit,” said franchise owner David Sutz, 58, who began working in fast food in 1977, as a manager trainee, and now co-owns four Burger Kings. “We in the New York market are very, very concerned that a lot of us may not survive over the next year.”

The current minimum wage in New York is $8.75, which is set to rise to $9 by year’s end.  A leap from $9 to $15 is astronomical from a business sense, and will lead to job losses, reduced work hours, and closed franchise locations. It’s a move that only an anti-business extremist would make. To put this in perspective, the entry-level burger flipper will now make the same or a higher wage than paramedics in western New York.Picture2

Via the Watertown Daily Times:

The hourly wage of a cashier at McDonald’s soon could be equal to that of a Watertown paramedic.

David C. Roof, president of the Town of Watertown Ambulance Service Inc., said the average hourly wage of the service’s paramedics is about $15. The new minimum fast food wage proposed by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo would match that.

Considering the hours of constant training and danger paramedics are subjected to while on the job, Mr. Roof said giving fast food workers the same pay is unfair.

“I don’t want to take anything away from those people in fast food, but I think the government should take a look at the people who save lives on the street and are in danger all the time,” Mr. Roof said.

Meanwhile, fast-food franchise owners are now putting up a legal fight.  They’ve hired “bare-knucles lawyer” Randy Mastro to challenge the legality of raising the minimum wage in such a manner. “These businesses are franchises,” Mastro told Crain’s New York.  “They are locally owned, many of them minority- and women-owned businesses. These are small-business owners with low margins who are trying to survive. This literally puts their business in jeopardy.”burke

Another report from Crain’s indicates that the mere mention of a $15 minimum wage “triggers panic among New York City restaurateurs.” One owner of the BLT restaurant chain said it’s “enough to send a restaurant from being profitable to losing money.”

Small-business owners have long warned that minimum wage hikes will suppress job creation, will lead to fewer hours for current employees, and will result in an increase in costs for consumers.Giant Government Compliance Officer

Academic studies confirm the accuracy of this criticism of minimum wage hikes. In 1995, University of California-Irvine economics professor David Neumark and Federal Reserve governor William Wascher analyzed payroll records of fast-food restaurants in New Jersey counties and neighboring counties across the state line with Pennsylvania, to determine what, if any, effect New Jersey’s 1994 minimum-wage increase had on entry-level employment trends. They found confirmation of the common wisdom that increasing the cost of entry-level labor results in increased unemployment and forces entry-level workers—often, the young or ethnic minorities—to seek employment in other geographic areas with fewer market distortions.

This ad from EPI also shows the predictable consequence of a $15 minimum wage for fast-food restaurants: Touch-screen ordering systems that replace employees.

CaptureUnfortunately, you can’t exactly replace a paramedic with an automated computer.

Gun Rights New York
Shut up and leave us alone!
 

During a recent city council meeting in Poughkeepsie, New York, Democrat councilman Joe Rich appeared to lose his cool with residents who opposed restrictive gun legislation, telling them to “shut up” and stay out of his city.

Representatives for the Shooters Committee on Political Education (SCOPE) gave a presentation to the council on the negative impacts of an ordinance requiring mandatory storage of firearms.

After defending the ordinance because some people might break into one’s house and use their own gun against them if they don’t lock it up, a mind-numbing defense of the concept of mandatory firearm storage, Rich accused the group of not wanting gun laws to work because it would cause Second Amendment supporters “a lot of trouble.”

He accused those in the audience of not even being from the city and not “loving” Poughkeepsie.

One person at the meeting spoke up and said there are certainly people at the meeting from the 2nd Ward that Rich represents, including himself.

That’s when Rich snapped:

“Quiet! You’re not recognized!” Rich shouted. “Shut up! You’re not recognized…I’m tired of having people from the audience interrupt me! I’ve listened to all you people from 5 p.m.! Shut up!”Liberalism a mental disorder 2

He told the pro-gun group to “leave us alone.”

What caused the furor in Rich’s eyes?

“I didn’t mean to lose my temper,” he told the Poughkeepsie Journal.  “But felt it was abusive for them to come there in large numbers, wearing their shirts.”

So, large amounts of Second Amendment advocates wearing shirts are a source of angst for Mr. Rich?

At one point, someone in the crowd yells out “Oh my God, the man needs help!”

2 NYPD Cops Executed as “Revenge”

Authorities say two uniformed NYPD officers were murdered Saturday to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos

Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot point-blank in the head.

The gunman, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addesses in Georgia and Brooklyn turned the gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

Hat tip NY POST:

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot.

“They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

He used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, along with two other hashtags referencing Garner and Brown.

Brinsley was a fugitive who had just murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore Saturday morning, sources told The Post.

The two officers were pronounced dead at Woodhull Hospital, where their colleagues and family members huddled tearfully.

City Council President Melissa Mark-Viverito and Mayor Bill de Blasio were less than welcome guests at the poignant gathering.

Just last week cops began signing a “Don’t Insult My Sacrifice” waiver, distributed by the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, that warned the mayor and speaker to stay away from funerals of cops killed in the line of duty.

Brinsley has a criminal record dating back to at least 2006, when he was arrested in Georgia for carrying a concealed weapon, a knife, as well as shoplifting, according to online records.

The next year he was nabbed in Dekalb County., Ga., for criminal trespass, and by 2009, he was indicted in Ohio for robbery — a charge that was later apparently dismissed.

In 2011, the shooter was arrested again in Georgia for reckless conduct, tampering with evidence, criminal property damage, and discharging his weapon. The outcome of the case is unknown.

Democrats: Vote or we’ll kick your ass

The New York State Democratic Committee is bullying people into voting next week with intimidating letters warning that it can easily find out which slackers fail to cast a ballot next Tuesday.

“Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record,” the letter says.

“We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.”

It ends with a line better suited to a mob movie than a major political party: “If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”

The letter and accompanying post card was criticized even by party members, with one Democratic consultant saying it was the wrong way to inspire votes.

“It’s a threatening letter. It’s a scare piece that is unnecessary and inappropriate,” the insider said.

Brooklyn and Manhattan residents who received the note Wednesday were furious, calling it an attempt to browbeat them into showing up at the polls.

“I’m outraged. Whether I vote or not is none of your business!” said a Manhattan voter, who was so incensed that she complained to a local Democratic leader.

“The letter is ludicrous and menacing,” said the voter, who requested anonymity.Pointing finger

The woman also received a report card of her voting record, pointing out that she had failed to vote in two of the last four elections.

Overall, the notices were sent out to 1 million registered Democrats who had failed to vote in previous midterm elections, according to the group.

The committee — chaired by former Gov. David Paterson — defended the scare tactic, calling it standard practice throughout the country.

“This flier is part of the nationwide Democratic response to traditional Republican voter-suppression efforts, because Democrats believe our democracy works better when more people vote, not  less,” said Peter Kauffmann, a committee spokesman.

“The difference between Democrats and Republicans is they don’t want people to vote and we want everyone to vote.”Obama Big Brother 02

Paterson declined to comment.

The mailer has a phone number on it that goes to Election Protection, a nonpartisan voting organization.

The organization said it had received a “significant” number of calls about the letter.

Such attempts to shame people to vote — what politicos call “social pressure” or peer pressure — has become more common place and was used by the Obama campaign in 2012, sources said.

A Yale University study in 2008 found that voter participation increased substantially after lazy voters received letters telling them their spotty voting history was a public record that would be scrutinized.

The notice includes a “vote report card” rating New Yorkers’ voting records as “excellent,” “good,” “fair” or “incomplete.”

“Many organizations monitor turnout in your neighborhood and are disappointed by the inconsistent voting of many of your neighbors,” it says.Freedom is not dictator friendly

The letter came a week before heavily favored Democratic Gov. Cuomo faces off against Republican Rob Astorino.

Cuomo was not behind the shame letters, party sources insisted.

But Astorino scoffed, “Andrew Cuomo’s thuggish tactics just crossed the line into creepy territory . . . Threatening and intimidating people is not how honorable elected leaders operate.”

America Needs toWake Up

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Iraq’s prime minister said Thursday that captive Islamic State militants told his intelligence agents of an alleged plot to attack subways in the United States and Paris, France.

11Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi said he was told of the purported plot by officials in Baghdad, and that it was the work of foreign fighters who had joined the Islamic State group in Iraqi, including French and U.S. nationals. Al-Abadi’s assertion has not be independently confirmed by U.S. government intelligence.

Asked if the attacks were imminent, he said, “I’m not sure.” Asked if the attacks had been thwarted, he said, “No, it has not been disrupted yet— this is a network.”

“Today, while I’m here I’m receiving accurate reports from Baghdad that there were arrests of a few elements and there were networks from inside Iraq to have attacks — on metros of Paris and U.S.,” al-Abadi said, speaking in English. “They are not Iraqis. Some of them are French, some of them are Americans. But they are in Iraq.”BEST remembering 911

Imperial Islamic President ObamaAl-Abadi said the United States had been alerted. He declined to give the location in the U.S. where such an attack might occur.

He made the remarks at a meeting with journalists on the sidelines of a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly.

A senior Obama administration official told the Associated Press no one in the U.S. government is aware of such a plot, adding that the claim was never brought up in meetings with Iraqi officials this week in New York. President Barack Obama met with al-Abadi Wednesday.

The administration official was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Congressman Peter King, member of the Homeland Security Commission, told CBS 2 that he has not seen evidence of an imminent threat against the United States.

“I have been aware that there are plots that ISIS is planning overseas against other countries, quite honestly, I have not been advised of this — and I have been checking this out — I don’t believe that the U.S. government has been advised of an imminent plot,” King said.

“Anything involving ISIS is taken seriously and there is absolutely no evidence at all that there’s any validity to what the prime minister said,” King told 1010 WINS.

“It could be speculation in Iraq, it could be conversations where they were talking about it as aspirational, but as far as it being in motion I don’t believe it is,” King added.

King said the nation must be on guard, but that the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies have not put out any advisories of an imminent threat against the U.S.

“If they thought it was imminent they would be contacting New York State, New York City as soon as possible because when you’re talking about a subway attack obviously New York is always what first comes to mind,” King said. “We have at least 5,000 entrances and exits to train stations in New York, millions of commuters everyday, millions of riders on the trains, so they would be first notified.”

The FBI is looking into the alleged plot.

“We’re going to have to grill down and get as much information as possible, of course. We’ve had plots against the subways in New York and thankfully they haven’t come to fruition, but it’s something that we can’t totally discount,” Former New York City Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly told 1010 WINS.

Kelly told 1010 WINS the way the information of the alleged plot came out is unusual.

“I think this report took the intelligence community by surprise and they’re scrambling now to see if there’s anything to it, how credible it is. This was not an item that had previously been discussed or on their agenda, certainly not in a recent path,” he said.

“We are aware of the Iraqi Prime Minister’s statements and are in contact with our law enforcement and intelligence community partners as we assess the validity of this threat,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge George Venizelos said in a statement. “The FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, along with the New York City Police Department, remain committed to protecting this city.”

The NYPD released a statement saying, “We are aware of the Iraqi Prime Minister’s statements and we are in close contact with the FBI and other federal partners as we assess this particular threat stream. New York City normally operates at a heightened level of security and we adjust that posture daily based on our evaluation of information as we receive it.”

A spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office released a statement saying that “the city takes any threat seriously.”Human bomb

At a news conference outside the Union Square subway station Thursday afternoon, de Blasio worked to calm the nerves of New Yorkers after news of the alleged plot, clarifying that it had “some focus on subways.”

“We are convinced that New Yorkers are safe. We are convinced that people should go about our normal routine. Terrorists want us to live in fear. We refuse to live in fear,” he said.

The mayor also stressed the importance of the subway system’s “see something, say something” motto.

“The people of this city have an important role to play. The phrase, ‘when you see something, say something’ is not an empty phrase. It is real,” de Blasio said.

Joining de Blasio at the news conference, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton echoed the mayor’s statements.

“At this time, the people of this city should feel very comfortable and secure moving through the subways,” he said.

Bratton said New Yorkers would see stepped up security across the city and in all subway stations as a precaution.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York is acting with the “utmost precaution.”

“Our administration has been coordinating at a high level with local, state and federal partners. I want to assure the people of New York that we are monitoring these reports closely and are in close communication with officials in Washington,” Cuomo stated. “Public safety is paramount, and we are doing everything necessary to protect New Yorkers.”lies

The news comes a day after the governors of New York and New Jersey came together to announce a substantial increase in security at local bridges, tunnels, airports and mass transit hubs, including Penn Station and Grand Central Station.

Cuomo and Gov. Chris Christie said the ramped up security was not a result of any particular new intelligence.

It is unclear if that increase in security is related to the announcement made by Al-Abadi Thursday, CBS 2’s Andrea Grymes reported.

ISIS PASSPORTSThe Islamic State extremists’ blitz in Iraq and Syria prompted the United State to launch airstrikes in Iraq last month, to aid Kurdish forces who were battling the militants and to protect religious minorities.

In addition to the brutality Islamic State has visited on the people in Iraq and Syria, western leaders have voiced concern that the group would move its terror operations outside the region.

This week, the U.S. and five allied Arab states expanded the aerial campaign into Syria, where the militant group is battling President Bashar Assad’s forces as well as Western-backed rebels..

Western leaders have voiced concern that the Islamic State group would move its terror operations outside the Middle East.

Hundreds of cities fight back against ‘invasion’


Protesters in Vasser, Michigan, marched from city hall Monday, July 14.

A massive protest scheduled for July 18 and 19 across the United States is aimed at stopping the influx of Central American children flooding across the border, and more than a dozen smaller community protests already have played roles in stopping the children from being brought there.

Citizens in Westminster, Maryland; Oracle, Arizona; Vassar, Michigan; Greece, New York, and many other places have blocked the importation of illegal aliens into their communities through public protests, letters and official resolutions from elected leaders.

See full list below.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh led his show Tuesday with stories about the successful pushback against the illegals going on across America.

“Here’s what you do not know,” he said.  “There are towns all over America standing up to this invasion, just like they did in Murrieta, California.  You’re not hearing about it, however, and I am here to tell you why you’re not hearing about it.  Westminster, Maryland, is a town standing up to it, just like Murrieta, California, did. Oracle, Arizona, is standing up to it.’

“In Nebraska they’re gonna stand up to it when they find out. The governor is fit to be tied,” Limbaugh continued.  “Upper Michigan, same thing. There are towns all over America standing up to this.  There are protests happening, but they’re not being covered.”

obama-border-is-open-378x257But the mother of all protests promises to be Friday and Saturday. It’s dubbed the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge, and it’s gaining support by the hour, said William Gheen, president of the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC and one of 11 sponsors. The main organizers are Gheen’s ALIPAC, James Neighbors of Overpasses For America and Paul Arnold of a new group called Make Them Listen.

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country. Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion,” Gheen said. “At last count we had 257 communities signed up, but that was two hours ago. We’re expecting more than 300 and updating the event list every two hours.”

The protests will take place in state capitals, Mexican consulates, on highway overpasses and intersections, and at illegal immigrant drop-off points and detention centers. Look here for a state by state listing of protest locations.

Will protests of illegals by U.S. cities make a difference?

Sound off in the WND Poll.

Immigration-PiperGheen said he’s hoping to send a message to “amnesty” politicians in both parties. He wants to counteract the recent surge of illegals at the southern border with a “surge” of his own.

“We’re hoping to get an American surge that will manifest in protests and the defeat of more Eric Cantor-type Republicans that still have GOP primaries and the Democrats in November that support Obama and his amnesty plans,” Gheen told WND.

He said Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., is tops on the list of Republicans he’d like to see booted from Washington. Alexander faces a challenge in the Aug. 7 primary from small businessman and state legislator Joe Carr, who has the backing of the tea party. He said 40 Republicans in the House also “need to go” because they are pro-amnesty politicians “playing the role” of conservatives.

“That’s why we’re involved in this historic protest, to help turn the tide in this,” he said. “That’s what they fear the most. They don’t fear people standing on an overpass swinging a flag. What they fear is when they know the next stop is the election booth and that’s our message. We want everybody to support these protests but we want them to understand we need to get them involved in these elections and the defeat of many of Obama’s amnesty allies.”

Gheen, who said he has worked as a consultant on 40 political campaigns, predicts this November will go down in history as a monumental Resist Amnestyhouse-cleaning in Congress.

“I am predicting that it is now possible to sweep more Democrats out of office than was done in the historic revolutions of 1994 and 2010,” he said. “We have to elect so many grassroots and populist conservatives that we can get the amnesty supporters out of office, and that includes John Boehner. Obama is doing this because he does not fear John Boehner. Republicans like Boehner and Rick Perry are not really Obama’s opponent. They just play those roles on television. They’re like people who can’t act well enough for Hollywood but they play characters on television for political purposes.”

Gheen said the coalition includes groups from varied backgrounds, including 2 Million Bikers to D.C., America Working, Americans Have Had Enough Coalition, Remember 1986, Tea Party Community and Riders USA. See the full list here.

James Neighbors, an Oklahoma City-based activist and founder of Overpasses for America, said his group will serve as the main logistics organizer on the ground in the various cities, checking on local protest laws and other details. He said it hasn’t been hard to get people excited about coming out to protest illegal immigration.

“Really we just give them the facts, and in this case it happens to be amnesty and how it’s going to cost over $60 billion to intake all of these illegal aliens and that’s only the 11 million the government admits are here. That number is from 2004,” said Neighbors. “We’re being invaded. That’s why we’re taking a strong stance on this because we’re looking and seeing more than one out of every 10 in the whole country being here illegally. That’s not even including what’s pouring across the border last several months. With the magnitude of what’s happening to America it might also be treasonous, because we believe it’s intentional.”

Cloward Pevin with explanationNeighbors said his group has demonstrated on overpasses in favor of impeachment, against Obamacare and for an investigation into the terrorist attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya. He thinks this weekend’s amnesty protest will be the largest of them all.

“I think it will be bigger. It’s a collaboration of several different groups and we’ve been able to get the word spread out so well on this,” he said. “People are so angry on this, it’s more tangible than impeachment. People can look around and see the results of what our open borders plan has been. I’m glad we’ll be able to provide an outlet for their anger.”

He said this weekend’s protests will be strictly peaceful.

“We don’t engage in violence, we simply exercise our First Amendment rights and educate the public with our protests,” he said. “We really look at it as a bypassing of the media. The ratings of the mainstream media are at an all-time low but you can’t ignore people out on an overpass; it sticks in your mind.”

What already has happened is clear.

Communities just say no to transplanted illegals

obama- Marxist tyrantIn Vassar, Michigan, about 50 protesters marched from City Hall through town on July 14 to the doorstep of a contractor that agreed to house up to 120 teenage boys from Central America. Some carried AR-15 rifles and handguns and tea party flags, according to a local newspaper report.

It was the second time in two weeks the protesters gathered. The protests are organized by Michiganders for Immigration Control, reported Fox 17 Detroit.

“We must act,” said Tamyra Murray, a resident of Blumfield Township near Saginaw, who organized the protests. “We must save America and stand up against this invasion.”

The Pioneer Work and Learn Center is under consideration to house up to 120 of the children, who are part of the massive influx of undocumented immigrants who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border since the fall. The minors, ages 12-17, would remain at the facility up to four weeks while their cases move through the immigration system.

Flood-Gates-590-LAIn Oracle, Arizona, a small town near Tuscon, protesters on both sides of the immigration debate showed up Tuesday after the sheriff said the federal government plans to transport about 40 immigrant children to an academy for troubled youths.

One group waved American flags, held signs that read “Return to Sender” and “Go home non-Yankees” and said it would block a bus that was supposed to arrive with immigrant children aboard. A few miles up the road, about 50 pro-immigrant supporters held welcome signs with drawings of hearts. The dueling groups each had about 50 people, according to the Associated Press.

“We are not going to tolerate illegals forced upon us,” protester Loren Woods told the AP.

Prince William County, Virginia, is preparing to sue ICE to get immigration data on 7,500 criminal illegal aliens turned over to the feds since 2008.

Prince William County Board of Supervisors will meet and is expected to give the green light to a lawsuit demanding immigration data from the federal government if the data is not turned over soon in response to a Freedom of Information request.

Corey Stewart, chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, told Fox 5 in Washington, D.C., he has a simple question for ICE: “What have you done with the 7,500 criminal illegal aliens that we have handed over to you since 2008?”

Stewart is the architect of the county’s policy, which has police check the immigration status of people arrested for crimes.

“Our policy has always been about catching criminal illegal aliens,” said Stewart. “Not about the illegal immigrantNational Day of Protest with date here trying to make a living.”

Once they serve their terms, they are turned over to ICE. And that is where the trouble starts.

“Were they released back into the United States or were they deported?” Stewart wondered.

Since it instituted its stepped-up enforcement, Prince William County police have arrested and turned over to ICE more than 7,000 people who are in the United States illegally. The problem is the county says ICE now won’t tell them where those people are.

In Chicago’s south suburbs in late June, a planned transfer of illegal alien children to a former monastery was stopped when a congressman intervened with letters to the Obama administration.

Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Ill., called for those efforts to be stopped, arguing that moving the children to the facility would only make matters worse for the children while creating orphanages even farther away from their homes.

“These children, unaccompanied by their families and under the control of smugglers and trafficking organizations, don’t need a stopgap solution,” he told NBC 5 in Chicago. “They should be returned to their home countries quickly and with human dignity, not left to languish in legal limbo.”

Congressional candidate Eric Wallace, who lives near the proposed site, also expressed concern about how the children would be absorbed into the community.

In Bristol, Virginia, the Washington County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution July 8 banning any resettlement of illegal aliens in the city, which apparently shot down a plan by the feds to house a group of Central American children at a vacant college campus, reported the Bristol Herald Courier.

Board members voted unanimously to send a resolution to local and federal legislators, as well as federal agencies, saying they oppose housing illegal aliens in the county, unless they’ve been charged as criminals and are treated accordingly.

The resolution that was approved was drafted by board member Jim Baker, who rewrote a resolution that County Administrator Jason Berry had drafted and put into the draft meeting agenda.

The topic of housing immigrants or refugees came up at the last board meeting, after it was made known that federal authorities were apparently considering the vacated Virginia Intermont College in Bristol as a site to house children who have fled Central America. Residents in Lawrenceville, Virginia, protested the housing of about 500 immigrant children at Saint Paul’s College, which closed a few years ago.

Baker’s resolution is more general, opposing the housing of all illegal aliens in the county, regardless of their age or situation.

“We don’t wish to be a target for illegal immigrants, and support other localities and local officials trying to fight it,” Baker told the Herald Courier.

In Greece, New York, a vacant 90,000-square-foot warehouse was under consideration by the federal government as temporary housing for illegal child immigrants but local elected leaders put a stop to the plan.

“It is my understanding from talking to the developer that he and the federal government would not move forward with this if the community did not support it, and we do not,” City Supervisor Bill Reilich said during a news conference at Greece Town Hall.

In Brockport, New York, near Rochester, the feds were eyeing a vacant Walmart as housing for illegal alien children from Central America. Rep. Chris Collins, R-New York, came out against the plan, which is now being reconsidered.

“As I have said before, it is unacceptable the federal government is trying to force the hardworking taxpayers of New York to foot the bill to house undocumented immigrants,” said Collins in a statement.

According to Collins, HHS is considering at least two other facilities in the state — a former convent in Saratoga County and a business park in Nassau County.

The federal agency was embarrassed earlier last month when it sent agents to inspect a facility near Buffalo it was considering for housing UACs. When the agents showed up to inspect the facility, they were informed that it was a fully functional resort and spa.

In Hazleton, Pennsylvania, a vacant building in the downtown business district was being considered as temporary shelter for unaccompanied teens flooding over the Mexican-U.S. border.

Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pennsylvania, called a press conference and vehemently criticized the plan, citing the possibilities of diseases being brought into the community and possible criminal or terrorist elements.

“We’re not talking about housing unaccompanied children at some military installation in Texas,” Barletta said. “There are people looking into housing them right here in our communities, and in towns just like this one, possibly all over America.”

In Bethpage, New York, a former Grumman manufacturing plant had been under consideration to house “thousands” of unaccompanied illegal alien children from the border surge but was ruled out after opponents said the former EPA Superfund site would not be an appropriate place for children to live. Superfund sites are environmentally contaminated industrial sites. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services did not give a reason as to why it ruled out the Bethpage facility.

In Westminster, Maryland, the feds decided not to use a former Army Reserve base as housing for illegal alien children after local officials objected to the transfer of illegals into their community.

A spokesman for Rep. Andy Harris, R-Maryland, told WBAL Radio that the congressman was notified that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services decided not to use the Westminster facility.

Harris, who represents part of Carroll County, joined some county officials in opposing the move. In a statement, Harris said flying the children to Maryland made no sense.

In Baltimore, Maryland, opposition from both of the state’s U.S. senators and from local officials blocked the proposed illegal alien housing facility at a vacant Social Security Administration Building in the city’s downtown area.

Sens. Barbara A. Mikulski and Ben Cardin had publicly objected to the proposal, as did Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

“The site they had intended is not being considered at this time,” Caron Brace, a spokeswoman for the mayor, told the Baltimore Sun. “However, the urgent need remains.”

In Escondido, California, the city planning commission rejected a proposal to turn an old nursing home into a shelter to house undocumented children.

Nearly 500 people packed into City Hall June 24 to show their concern and 100 of them signed up to speak. Police were there in case the crowd got too “rowdy,” according to ABC 10.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services wanted to open a 96-bed facility on Avenida Del Diablo, which is the site of a nursing home once operated by Palomar Pomerado Health Services.

Escondido’s mayor, anti-immigration activists and people who live near the site all opposed it. Ly Lykou came to this country 30 years ago from Asia.

“We did it the right way. We waited in line. We had our lungs X-rayed. If they want to do it the right way, let’s do that, but I feel like this is being forced on us. This is not a temporary situation,” Lykou said.

GUN REGISTRATION ALWAYS LEADS TO GUN CONFISCATION


Protesters burn gun registration forms

March 16, 2014 6:10 pm  •  MICHAEL GOOT — mgoot@poststar.com

 

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Nearly a thousand gun registration forms were turned into ashes Sunday.

The forms are used for people to register with New York State Police firearms that meet the state’s definition of military-style assault weapons. The deadline is April 15. Gun rights advocates gathered at the Saratoga-Wilton Elks Lodge 161 to burn the papers in a symbolic protest.

E.J. Stokes, leader of the Warren County chapter of New York Revolution, said he was participating because he believes in the U.S. Constitution.

“Once the Second (Amendment) falls, the rest will go with it. It’s an unconstitutional law, done in the middle of the night with no input from the public,” he said.

The event was organized by the NY2A Grassroots Coalition. NY2A co-founder Jake Palmateer said the goal is for people not to register their assault weapon as an act of civil disobedience.

“We are opposed to registration because the evidence is clear that registration leads to confiscation,” he said.

He and others hope that so few people will fill out the forms, that the registry portion of the SAFE Act “collapses under its own weight.”

He estimates that less than 3,000 New York assault weapons have been registered and he says Sate Police estimated that there are several hundred thousand. The gun industry believes the number may be high as 1.2 million, according to Palmateer.

He added that similar gun control legislation in Canada proved to be unworkable.

The second purpose of the event was to kick off advocacy efforts for the 2014 election. NY2A will be vetting Assembly and Senate candidates for their stance on gun rights.

“Make sure we are putting people in who are pro-civil rights. Ultimately, this is a civil rights issue,” he said.

The SAFE Act infringes on due process rights, the right to privacy and the right to equal protection under the law, according to Palmateer.

About 230 people attended a forum to discuss the issue before the burning. Similar forums held across the state have been well attended, Palmateer said. Gun groups will be holding a big rally April 1 at the state Capitol.
