Three Years in Prison Without a Trial

In United States law, no one is supposed to go to prison without a trial. Supposedly, the only reason to hold people is if they are a “flight risk.” No one is supposed to be punished with prison time until and unless he is convicted in a court of law. No one is supposed to be forced to wait forever in abeyance; Americans are supposed to get a speedy trial. But that is all fiction. It seems like an accused man in New York City (and probably elsewhere) has as many rights as a marine imprisoned Read more […]

De Blasio Advisor Dating a Convicted Killer

A “top” Bill de Blasio advisor is living with a man who was convicted of homicide, has a record for cocaine trafficking, and was charged with disorderly conduct for trying to run over a police officer—whom, the evidence shows, he likes to call “pigs.” Why does this make perfect sense? Here are the facts reported by the New York Post: “Top adviser to de Blasio dates a cop-bashing killer.” A top adviser to Mayor Bill de Blasio is in a live-in relationship with a convicted killer Read more […]

Climate Change March Trashes New York City? What Can We Learn?

It seems that people who went to New York City to participate in a climate change march–to agitate to get the government to “do something” about alleged climate change–did not impress some observers. Specifically, some reported that these protestors trashed the city where they were marching. The New York Post linked to a couple of twitter posts: Litter left by the #PeopleClimateMarch. Their love for the earth is so real, they couldn’t even use a trash can. pic.twitter.com/uhB7JxBN8f — Read more […]

Brooklyn Bridge White Flags Are a Serious Crime to the NYPD

Good to know New York’s crime is so minimal that the NYPD can waste… er, devote so many resources to chasing down an obvious prank or political statement. From NBC – 4 New York City: “NYPD Running License Plates, Examining Cellphone Transmissions, Collecting DNA in Brooklyn Bridge White Flags Investigation.” Investigators are running license plate numbers, scouring social media, examining cellphone transmissions and collecting DNA as part of their investigation into who climbed the Brooklyn Read more […]

New York City Revenue Trap Accidently Snares Someone Who Matters

We’ve already mentioned that de Blasio’s stringent safety regulations are not exactly evenly applied. The mayor’s own security detail is known for disregarding the laws that other New Yorkers must submit to or else lose a hefty amount of money. But the problem with automation is that sometimes the rules get applied equitably on the great and the poor alike. De Blasio has been a strong advocate of traffic cameras, but now he has to face strong opposition in one case. Via New York City’s Read more […]

There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch—Or It Is Not Enough Without Free Cash?

I have to admit that this story, in the Sydney Morning Herald is one of the best I have ever read. A stunt by a Chinese tycoon to provide free lunch to 300 homeless people in one of New York’s finest restaurants degenerated into a shambles as word spread that the participants would not be receiving an expected cash handout. The first simmerings of discontent emerged in Central Park’s Loeb Boathouse – backdrop for films such as When Harry Met Sally and television shows including Sex and the Read more […]

De Blasio’s Secret Government in New York City

Back in March we told you that the Associated Press was reporting on how the Obama Administration is constantly denying Freedom of Information requests. The White House’s record-breaking secrecy isn’t unique among monstrously liberal regimes. Now the AP is reporting that we are seeing new levels of secrecy from the New York City mayor’s office. From the first moments of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, when he initially declared his midnight swearing-in off limits to the Read more […]

NYPD Wet Pants Over a Few Weapons: “Oh No! An Army!”

“Ready for war”? When the most ammunition they had for any one weapon was a box of 50, plus a few scattered rounds? From the New York Post: Cops found an arsenal of guns, swords and ammo inside a Brooklyn apartment, officials said.

Educating Kids to Be Even More Useless: Protecting Them from Words

The story the New York City Department of Education evokes two ideas from George Orwell’s 1984, NewSpeak and the Memory Hole. NewSpeak was the regime slang that was supposed to be more efficient than normal speech. The Memory Hole was a place for destroying news clippings so that they could be replaced by other stories. In this case, the words are being sent down the Memory Hole so that a resulting new language comes into being. From CBS Channel 2, New York City: The New York City Department Read more […]

The Face of Sexual Progressivism: New York City Overlord Hating on Chick-fil-A

As anyone knows if they have been watching what is going on, the modern “homosexual rights” movement is about forced conformity to modern pansexual ideology. Tolerance is not even a known concept for these people, and they certainly don’t regard it as a virtue. So we are now treated to hate-speech spectacles where people in power promise to use that power against others on the basis of their adherence to traditional religious beliefs. These neo-perverts are incredibly impatient secularists. Read more […]
