Knock-Out King, Mayor Gordon Jenkins, and Why The Police Will Just Let Us Eat Each Other
We on the P.G.P.D for the most part are now looking the other way. After almost [deleted] years on the job I find this disheartening but a necessary fact to survive in today’s, what appears to most officers, an ANTI-POLICE environment. We are even being told by some supervisors to keep a low profile so “you’re not next on the front page”! I became a police officer to help people [deleted] years ago in P.G. County . . . but I now share the attitude of most officers, just let them eat each other, we have to survive.
Fred Reed, “Let Them Eat Each Other”
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Honorable Redstate Blogging Community, I give you Hizzoner, Monticello Mayor Gordon Jenkins after being popped for flyin’ blind. LANGUAGE ALERT. Or as YouTube blogger Carmen Rue put it: “Jenkins curses repeatedly while interacting with officers, calling both white and black policemen numerous hateful racial insults, creating a hostile work environment for the officers and other employees at Village Hall which threatens their health and security and appears designed to diminish the quality of service they are permitted to provide to the public.”

New York’s #Obamacare ripping old people away from their doctors.
Because to Governor Andrew Cuomo – not to mention Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand – old people are just numbers on a screen. Numbers on a screen that don’t reliably vote Democratic, to boot. The background is that New York’s Medicare Advantage program is having doctors being removed wholesale from the network: “one health carrier alone, UnitedHealthcare, is terminating contracts with up to 2,100 | Read More »
Hardcore antiwar Left attempts to hijack public anger at @barackobama over #shutdown.
You might have noticed last night the groundwork for a future attempt (probably later today) to incite outrage about war veterans getting arrested at a Vietnam Veterans memorial. Turns out that these particular war veterans get arrested every year – in New York – as part of their general antiwar protesting. Don’t believe me? Believe the Atlantic, then: The gathering took place in part to | Read More »
Tech at Night: Is Obama violating Net Neutrality during the Shutdown? Michael O’Rielly is using no ‘code words’
Still not a lot going on thanks to the shutdown, but there is the theory being floated that the Obama administration’s punitive shutdown policies are violating Net Neutrality rules. I don’t know that I agree, but it’s worth at least thinking about, as little as Net Neutrality even makes sense.
For all the people are claiming Silk Road wasn’t a significant part of the Bitcoin value, it could be that the feds are seizing 5% of all Bitcoins in circulation. But it is going to be interesting to see how seizing assets works when the assets are encrypted.

Martha Robertson (D CAND, New York-23) to accept fundraiser from child molester.
You would think that Do not accept political favors from somebody who once molested a kid would be one of those basic Rules Of Life. You know: the sort of thing that people don’t need to be told about, before they start out on a federal Congressional career. Apparently not: Peter Yarrow, who rose to fame in the 1960s folk group Peter, Paul and Mary, | Read More »
Sean Eldridge (D CAND, NY-19 PRI) not really showing moral courage on #Syria.
I mean. Politicians are going to have to pick a side, here. Sean Eldridge, the soon-to-be Democratic congressional candidate and husband of New Republic owner Chris Hughes, is staying silent on the Syria debate, even as his opponent has stated firm opposition to a military strike. The Syria debate has put several candidates in a bind ahead of the 2014 elections — none more so | Read More »
Tech at Night: The Grand Return
So I’ve been gone a while. Sorry about that. After Summer Games Done Quick and the Redstate Gathering, I was supposed to be back in action. But a case of the shingles took me down fast. I was a sleepless zombie in pain for a week. No fun. Was actually alright on Friday, but I had so much reading to do I couldn’t catch up in time to post on Friday, so here we are. Hang on.
So let’s start with Time-Warner and CBS. The two had their negotiations fall through with respect to carrying CBS on Cable, and so a blackout began. The left wants this as the pretext to more government, but let’s be clear about this. Government created this pickle. The way out of it was proposed way back when, and backed in Tech at Night, when Jim DeMint and Steve Scalise proposed legislation. It’s still the right answer.

#NRCC aggressively swinging in NY-19 race.

You thought that the Weiner-Spitzer thing couldn’t get any funnier, didn’t you?
I mean, how could it? Anthony Weiner is running for NYC Mayor. Anthony Weiner has an excellent chance of getting the Democratic nomination for NYC Mayor. Anthony Weiner thus has a very good chance of becoming the next NYC Mayor. Eliot Spitzer heard this and said Hey, maybe I can get in on this action. Eliot Spitzer is thus running for office in NYC.

Welp. It’s a banner day for New York politicians getting arrested.
(H/T: Jammie Wearing Fools) Geez Louise. State Sen. Malcolm Smith and city Councilman Dan Halloran were arrested this morning on charges they were plotting to rig this year’s mayoral election through fraud and bribes. The pols allegedly formed an alliance built on cash payments and fraud to get Smith — one of the state’s top Democrats — placed on the GOP mayoral ballot, sources said. | Read More »
Rep. Bill Owens: Budget Nihilist
Last week the House voted on 6 different budget frameworks. Surprisingly, with so many budgets to choose from, Rep. Bill Owens couldn’t bring himself to support a single one. He’s a budget nihilist. Owens’ refusal to support any budget last week is a classic case of a Washington politician trying to have his cake and eat it too. By opposing everything and failing to offer | Read More »
Andrew Cuomo admits that he done [expletive deleted] UP with NY’s 10-round magazine ban.
Governor Cuomo did this epically, admitting that the restrictions on magazine possession that he pushed through and signed into law earlier in the year are too flawed to exist, and need to be repealed. “There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn’t exist. So you really have no practical option.” – Andrew Cuomo So why the [expletive deleted] did you sign it | Read More »
Andrew Cuomo tells local governments to consolidate.
Alternate title: Son, you’re on your own. The New York state budget currently under negotiation may be remembered years from now as the beginning of the end for many small towns, cities and school districts. Gov. Andrew Cuomo had tough words Friday for local officials facing fiscal crises and seeking more help from Albany, telling them they should consolidate services or whole governments and school | Read More »
Bloomberg’s 16 ounce enforcement shows ignorance about measurements
New York City’s ban on select beverages larger than 16 ounces struck many of us as a progressive nanny state running its due course. It was a senseless blow to liberty, expanding government in a pointless way, that also happened to affect less-wealthy New Yorkers disproportionately.
But as the city now turns toward enforcement of the ban, new developments in city government point to a disturbing revelation: New York City’s health department knows nothing about science, about testing, or about how to use calibrated instrumentation to make accurate measurements in restaurants.
In expanding the nanny state, Mike Bloomberg reveals New Yorkers probably aren’t very safe under its growing umbrella.

Andrew Cuomo freaks out over a little hostile media coverage.
Via Instapundit, I’m getting the impression that Andrew Cuomo is apparently very good at turning small PR problems into bigger PR problems. Short version: guy in the state government (Mike Fayette) talks to the press (the Adirondack Daily Enterprise) when he apparently wasn’t supposed to. Fayette gets in trouble for it. Rather than get fired, he retires. So far, so… whatever, man. Only the Daily | Read More »
