Rep Sean Maloney (D, New York-18) decided that FAA regulations don’t apply to Rep. Sean Maloney.
It’s not that Rep. Maloney decided that the law, indeed, is stupid… New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney’s wedding last month had it all — celebrities, fireworks and even a small drone used to shoot a spectacular wedding video. But the Federal Aviation Administration prohibits the commercial use of drones like the miniature helicopter that gathered the breathtaking aerial footage of Maloney’s June 21 wedding | Read More »
Gun Control Will Never Stop Barbarism
During the 48-hour period of May 30-June 1, there were 16 incidents of gunfire and 19 people hit by bullets. Only 2 suspected shooters were arrested. Overall, roughly 25% to 30% of nonfatal shootings result in an arrest, compared with arrests in about 80% of homicides, according to an NYPD spokesman.(HT: New York Daily News) “It’s Groundhog Day here in Chicago” is how Police Superintendent | Read More »

New York Republican Primary “Endorsements”
The good news out of New York is that there is no Senate race this year. Instead, the GOP primary action will be at the district level. New York is, overall, a blue state. The GOP in New York- at least as concerns statewide races- has been a disaster. On the more local district level they have also suffered some losses in 2012. There comes | Read More »
Martha Robertson (D CAND, New York-23[*]) using already debunked DCCC talking points.
Martha Robertson (D CAND, NY-23), having apparently not learned her lesson about telling lies in the course of campaigning, is doubling down on stupid: Two weeks ago, a local news station ran a story concerning Robertson’s claim that the VA suffered from “decades of underfunding.” That claim had previously been rates as false. Robertson then shifted gears and falsely accused Congressman Reed of voting “against reducing | Read More »
Fact: They Are After Your Guns and Here is the Proof
How many laws have to be passed before you believe they are after your guns? President Obama and the left have an aggressive gun control agenda – and it’s hiding plain sight. Yet even in respected circles there are many who believe we only need to enact new legislation further restricting gun and ammunition ownership and our problems with crime and mental health will go | Read More »

Claudia Tenney for Congress
In the safely Republican 22nd congressional district of New York, Claudia Tenney is to the right of the incumbent Richard Hanna. On a whole host of issues, Tenney is to Hanna’s right. The Marine mom is a conservative with conservative roots. While I’m focused on coin operated conservatives this morning, it is worth noting that some supposedly conservative Super PAC’s are pouring money in the | Read More »
Behind in the Count: Obama at Cooperstown
Baseball, apple pie, hot dogs; all hallmarks of an anticipated summer were disunited with Barack Obama in historic Cooperstown last week, touting tourism as a negligible channel to economic growth. Cooperstown, celebrating the Baseball Hall of Fame’s 75th Anniversary was an equivocal choice for Obama’s wild pitch on the need to reduce airport wait times for foreign visitors. For the event to hold some congruity, | Read More »

New York ‘s Abortion Business Operates Without Regulation
In 2012 over 130,000 abortions were carried out in the 225 abortion facilities that operate in New York. These facilities are subject to inspection. When the pro-life Chiaroscuro Foundation asked the NY State Health Department for information on those inspections, information which is supposed to be public record, they were stonewalled. The Foundation sued under the state freedom of informations act and the results were | Read More »
Cigarette smuggling business booming in NYC. Of course.
There are days when I wish that classes in Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century European history were mandatory for government officials – wait, no, I always wish that. There are simply days where my desires are given explicit validation by a new report: “More than half of the cigarettes sold in New York State are smuggled in from other places to avoid the Empire State’s taxes | Read More »
There’s been proposal introduced that would split California into six different states. There’d be Silicon Valley, South California, West California, Central California, North California and Jefferson. It could well make it to the ballot this YEAR. There’s also similar movements happening in New York where it’d be split into 2 regions (New York and New Amsterdam) and Maryland where the western counties are wanting to | Read More »
Domenic Recchia (D-CAND, New York-11) was ready to literally CROWN @barackobama in 2009.
Never say anything in 2009 that you’re going to regret in 2014. Particularly if you plan to run in a R+4 district in that year. Domenic Recchia was presumably a bit stoked from having a member of his party become President (from context, it looks like this was in January of 2009), but that’s no real excuse to say politically illiterate stuff like this: “Now | Read More »
Rep. Bill Owens (D, New York-21) cuts and runs.
Nice. NY Democratic Rep Bill Owens not seeking reelection. — Jake Sherman (@JakeSherman) January 14, 2014 This was that thoroughly contested seat (the one involving Doug Hoffman) that drove the GOP nuts in 2009 and 2010 in trying to take it back. As Politico implies, Bill Owens hasn’t really been fitting in in Congress and the Republican party has been actively planning to go | Read More »
Democrat Quits After Lawyer Provides Video of Him “Either Miming or Actually Engaged in a Sex Act In a Bathroom Stall”
Despite consistent allegations of sexual harassment by seven female staffers, New York Assemblyman Dennis Gabryszak, an Erie County Democrat, was set to forge on with his work, battling the accusations against him. That work would have included the first two days of the new legislative session in Albany on Monday and Tuesday. Gabryszak’s travel plans were interrupted however, when a lawyer for the victims presented digital | Read More »
Mike McIntyre cuts and ru… what’s that? CAROLYN MCCARTHY (D, NY-04) is out?
Carolyn “I’m blaming my lung cancer on my father being around asbestos and not my pack-a-day habit?” McCarthy? Carolyn “I used Heath Shuler’s money-laundering-for-lobbyists scheme” McCarthy? Carolyn “PMA Porker” McCarthy? Ayup. Announced it at the same time as McIntyre. My response? “O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!” He chortled in his joy.
