Revenge of the Spitz
In 2006, Eliot Spitzer was an unstoppable force in New York State politics. Brave, conservative footsoldier John Faso allowed himself to be steamrolled by the Attorney General on his path to the Governor’s Mansion. By 2008, Spitzer was out of office due to a prostitution scandal that shook the seemingly unshakable Governor. Now, in 2010, Eliot Spitzer is considering a run for one of only | Read More »
Tim Gill’s Merry Band Failed in New York.
You may remember Tim Gill from this Atlantic Monthly profile. Gill is the multi-millionaire gay man who helped fund the left’s take over of Colorado. Gill is playing for keeps and gay marriage. He funds local races and state legislative races to get legislatures to pass gay marriage without the consent of the voters. He keeps a low profile, bundles with lots of donors to | Read More »
Great NYC Nanny-State Moments: Banning roll-down storefront gates
The always entertaining New York city council is one of the best “nanny state” governments in the country, telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat, that you can’t smoke, or whatever they want to control at the moment. I suggested that the New York city council might be interested in objecting to the terrorists coming into the city for year-long “bash America” trials, but | Read More »
Radical Islam Finds Voice In New York College
There is a troubling story unfolding in Queens, New York, in which school officials and local Democrats have charged College Republicans with stoking racism and xenophobia. Siraj Wahhaj, a radical Muslim cleric who authorities in 1995 identified an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, was last week invited to Queens College to speak on the subject “How Islam Perfected Thanksgiving.” Wahhaj testified | Read More »
New York is dying–and the powerful unions don’t feel a thing
Even in New York’s dying moments, the powerful teachers unions (owners of almost every NY politician) don’t sacrifice one damn cent. From Bloomberg.com: Paterson to Use Executive Power to Narrow New York Budget Gap By Michael Quint Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) — New York Governor David Paterson said that he will act to close $1.6 billion of the state’s $3.1 billion deficit by executive order after | Read More »
COST OF AN EGO: Bloomberg Spent $102 Million to Win 3rd Term ($183 per vote)
Michael Bloomberg ego knows no bounds. It will cost the GOP, New York City, New York State, and the United States of America dearly–let me show you the ways! From Saturday’s New York Times: To eke out a narrow re-election victory over the city’s understated comptroller, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg spent $102 million of his own money, or about $183 per vote, according to data | Read More »
The Terrorists Will Plead Not Guilty
It should not be surprising to learn, though it may make your blood pressure go up. The terrorists who orchestrated 9/11 and masterminded the deaths of thousands of Americans will plead not guilty. They will use their case to try American foreign policy.Fox News has the details. Scott Fenstermaker, the lawyer for accused terrorist Ali Abd al-Aziz Ali, said the men would not deny their | Read More »
Why KSM is getting a show trial?
Remember, everything is about Obama’s legacy. Nothing else. After all the legal wrangling, Obama may very well be out of office by the time any civilian trial is concluded. Holder did not tell Sen. Graham that KSM would be re-imprisoned. He said that Congress would not allow KSM to "be released in THIS country." Obama could be accused of biasing any jury pool with his | Read More »
Understanding Narcissism is Understanding Obama
It’s often quite difficult to talk about once having been an abused spouse because it elicits expressions of sympathy and overshadows the point of the posts or articles. It’s not about sympathy for me but looking out for my country. I’m okay. We are not okay. There have been a few times when I’ve said that Obama reminds me of my ex-husband. My ex-husband is | Read More »
Sen. Schumer’s (D, NY) unsurprising tribunal reversal.
Everybody’s overthinking Chuck Schumer’s (D, NY) flip-flop from his 2001 stance on military tribunals: …those who commit acts of war against the United States, particularly those who have no color of citizenship, don’t deserve the same panoply of due process rights that American citizens receive. Should Osama bin Laden be captured alive—and I imagine most Americans hope he won’t be captured alive. But if he is, it is ludicrous to | Read More »
2010 Suggestions to Draft – John Faso
For New York’s 20th District, a solid candidate is needed to recapture this formally Republican seat. In 2009 during the special election, the GOP selected the now former Assembly Minority Leader. I’m suggesting a different former Assembly Minority Leader – John Faso. Faso served in the NYS Assembly from 1987 until 2002, serving as Minority leader, serving from 1998 to 2002. In 1994, he considered | Read More »
The Left’s ‘Fair’ Trial
“Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is not a criminal. He is a soldier in a war captured on a battlefield. That is not something our criminal justice system was designed to handle and should not handle.” I’ve seen a lot from the left in the last twenty-four hours that I, and conservatives in general, do not want to give Khalid Sheikh Mohammed a fair trail and that | Read More »
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Obama Proclaimed Citizen Of New York For The Show Trial Of The Century
Terrorism is no longer an act of war in The United States. Just as it was before 9/11 it is once again a criminal act thanks to the weakness and imbecilic decisions of Barack Obama. On Friday Attorney General Eric Holder announced that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the confessed mastermind behind 9/11 and four other 9/11 terrorists would be moved to New York City and displayed | Read More »
Rep. Bill Owens (D NY-23) breaks his word on the public option.
(H/T: Big Government) I’m actually not upset about this, seeing as I knew all along that he’d break his word. Fish swim, birds fly, ‘conservative’ Democratic legislators betray their principles on cue. And so it is, here: GOUVERNEUR, NY – Congressman-elect Bill Owens was sworn in at noon today. Owens indicated in a press release that he was now in favor of the bill in | Read More »
Conservative Comptroller Candidate Suggestion
With the 2009 special election now past, Doug Hoffman has lost. But, it is quite an accomplishment for an unknown CPA to go from polling at 16% to garnering 45% of the popular vote on a third party ballot line. This is a big accomplishment in and of itself. Hoffman is a hero to many conservatives who saw this as a fight that needed to | Read More »
