Democrat Hypocrisy: Attacking Political Advocate Spending…. Unless They’re Unions

Democrats in New York once again prove that their bleating against money in politics is a lie with a new law that forces more campaign finance disclosure for everyone (read Republicans) except for union. Yes, while others are being forced to more disclosure, unions are being allowed to hide more campaign expenditures.

By exempting left-wing, Democrat-old Union donors, this is proof once again that Democrats don’t want money out of politics, they only want Republican money out of politics.

In New York, the state legislature passed a state budget that requires more disclosure of spending on issues and advocacy (outside elections) for everyone… except unions, naturally.

As Craine’s New York reported, “Spending by labor unions on campaign messages targeting their members and union retirees will remain exempt from disclosure under the state law…”

‘NY Daily News’ Article Calls Gun Owner ‘Gun Nut,’ Misidentifies Guns

-By Warner Todd Huston

To show the utter, abject bias against the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights in the “news,” one need only turn to the New York Daily News to see a prime example. In a recent “news” story on a gun give-away, the paper called the winner a “gun nut,” and misidentified the rifle given away as an “assault weapon.”

A church in upstate New York made news by hosting a give-away program for an AR-15-styled rifle made by Smith & Wesson. The entrants for the raffle had to sit through the pastor’s sermon. The winner also had to pass a background check at a local gun store and wait the requisite period to take possession of the rifle.

In “reporting” the story, though, the paper filled its piece with misleading terminology and name calling to prove its disdain for the Church’s give-away as well as its contempt for the Constitution and the Second Amendment not to mention the winner of the rifle.

NY Teachers/Social Workers Save Class From Evil Lego Gun Wielding Kid

The geniuses in the State of New York educational establishment have made schools safe from gun wielding crazies once again by persecuting an evil child who waved a gun in class. What kind of super dangerous gun did the boy have? A one-inch-long Lego toy, naturally.

This is, of course, more stupidity sponsored by one of those pointless “zero tolerance” policies that holds that any “weapon” in class is grounds for severe prosecution of the student violating the policy.

In this case, an 8-year-old boy at an upstate New York grade school was persecuted by officials for wielding the tiny piece of plastic shaped like a gun used for characters in the Lego line of toys. Officials claimed the boy threatened to “shoot” his classmates… with a one-inch-long piece of plastic.

The boy’s “teacher” called both the school principal and the social worker because of this dangerous, dangerous gun.

New York Anti-Gun Zealot Arrested for Taking Gun to School, Wants Absolution

Dwayne Ferguson an African American community activist and vehement anti-gun campaigner who worked tirelessly for New York’s gun grabbing SAFE Act was arrested last week for carrying a concealed weapon into a grade school. He said he “forgot” he had the gun on him and wants to be given a pass on the violation.

Last week, Ferguson, the leader of the extremist anti-gun group MAD DADS, was the cause of a lockdown of Harvey Austin Elementary, in Buffalo, New York. Police responded to a call about a man with a gun on school grounds with their search ending when they found Ferguson’s handgun.

The activist, who helps run an after-school program, was arrested and charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, including having a loaded weapon on school grounds–charges now enhanced by the anti-gun SAFE Act. He could be sentenced to up to four years in prison for the violation.

He pleaded not guilty to the crime saying he should be given a pass because he merely “forgot” that he had his pistol on him and since he has a legal concealed carry permit he thinks he should be let off the hook.

California’s Gun Confiscation Program Based on Faulty Gun Registry

If you need any proof at all that governments in this very country intend to use gun registries as a means to track down and confiscate our firearms, California is only the latest example to prove it.

California used its registry of guns to begin a program of confiscating guns from people they claim are “criminals.”

But the system the state has devised to identify these evil-doers seems to be quite screwed up. Just ask Bakersfield resident Michael Merritt who was confronted with this roving goon squad of cops that have been cruising the state and confiscating guns from people who may or may not be guilty of owning guns in violation of “the law.”

NY Firemen Tell Cuomo To Stop Using Them as Excuse for Gun Grabbing

Firemen in West Webster, New York are sick and tired of Governor Andrew Cuomo using them as an excuse for his unconstitutional gun grabbing.

One of the main excuses New York Governor Cuomo used to institute his latest anti-Second Amendment law, the so-called SAFE Act, was the attack suffered by firemen in West Webster. In 2012 as they responded to a fire two firemen were killed by a nut case with a gun.

On Christmas Eve in 2012, a criminal named William H. Spengler allegedly set a fire then laid in wait for firemen to arrive whereupon he began shooting at them. Two were killed in the ambush.

The psycho eventually killed himself but not before 8 nearby homes were destroyed by fire because firefighters were prevented from combating the flames due to the man’s gunfire.

The video of a police officer harassing a citizen for washing his own car on his own driveway is going viral proving once again that our governments have become arrogant and are acting as an enemy to freedom, liberty, and private property rights.

The video shows a Garden City police officer accosting a citizen for washing his car in his own driveway. The officer claims it is a crime in Garden City and reads from a copy of the statute that he brought to the homeowner to prove his claims. (Youtube page)

The 27-year-old owner of the car is obviously shocked that police had the temerity to tell him that he couldn’t wash his own car on his own, private property.

New York Councilwoman Blames Jews for Knockout Game Attacks

Gangs of black teens (both girls and boys) have been coursing through our big cities sucker punching white people–often the aged and many times Jews–in the so-called knock out game. These crimes are happening from coast to coast and the story is always the same; black kids attacking whites without warning. But one New York Councilwoman has an explanation for it all. It’s the Jews’ fault.

Newly elected New York City Councilwoman Laurie Cumbo of Crown Heights thinks she knows why gangs of criminal blacks are beating up whites and Jews in obvious hate crimes. It’s those darn Jews causing all her poor black constituents to feel “threatened.”

Cumbo released a letter explaining how none of this could be the black criminals’ fault and it all has to be the Jews fault because, she says, Jews in her area has been prospering and growing of late.

“Many African American/Caribbean residents expressed a genuine concern that as the Jewish community continues to grow, they would be pushed out by their Jewish landlords or by Jewish families looking to purchase home,” this racist wrote on her Facebook page.

Is Common Core Causing Kids to Self-Mutilate?

-By Warner Todd Huston

The new Common Core school curriculum is being panned by freedom-loving Americans everywhere, but even many education experts and others are against the new education scheme. Now, a clinical social worker in New York is saying that the Common Core system is causing kids to self-mutilate.

Mary Calamia of Stony Brook, New York, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, recently testified at the Suffolk County Education Forum hosted by the New York State Assembly Minority Education Committee and said that the Common Core system is causing many unforeseen problems for kids.

The forum was held to discuss the increased instances of self-mutilation being seen in students, especially among honor students, since Common Core has been implemented.

Calamia says that the increased stress on students visited upon them by Common Core requirements are driving them to perform these increased instances of self-cutting. But this is happening because, in her opinion, the kids are being expected to perform things that they simply don’t have the physical abilities to perform.

Beth Dimino, President of the Port Jefferson Station Teachers Association, appeared to speak at a Common Core forum held on November12 at the Ward Melville High School in East Setauket, New York. Dimino is also a science teacher in the Comsewogue School District.

The 16-year-teacher blasted Common Core and said that even “psychologists” are now maintaining that the new, fashionable educational policy is harming children.

The media is attempting to claim that the arrests of two New York Muslims accused of having ties to the Taliban is a case of entrapment, but others are not so sure.

As Daniel Greenfield reports, court papers show that Humayoun Ghoulam Nabi and Ismail Alsarabbi aided the Taliban in getting guns and supplies and had plans to do much more. Nabi, the papers said, had “Zillions of trucks moving in and out of Kabul.”

As Greenfield writes, “He wanted to supply the Taliban with gear and then move up to weapons, saying that the American soldiers had the advantage in goggles, GPS and cold weather gear and that otherwise they were weak people who would perish, saying, ‘They will die, they will die, they are weak people you know, all those big muscle and all that is bullshit you know?’”

Nabi, 27, told an informant that, “he hated the United States and wants to take a stand.”

9/11 Memorial, New York City

Muslims murdered thousands of Americans on Sept. 11, 2001. Now Muslims want to force authorities that run the 9/11 memorial in New York, the one right at Ground Zero of the attacks, to reprint brochures and possibly even museum displays in Arabic.

The story came out last month in the New York Post which reported that the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee sent a series of complaint letters to the 9/11 memorial saying that the memorial folks are “discriminating” against Muslims.

The brochures are printed in 10 different languages but not Arabic.

“Our fear is that there is a political intention behind the exclusion,” the Post says Raed Jarrar, the ADC’s director of communications and advocacy, said.

Federal Court Says Using ‘N’ Word at Work is Illegal Even if You’re Black

A court in New York has decided that even blacks should not be allowed to use the word “nig**r” at work. I have to say, at some point I have to agree with this verdict. If African Americans can oppress the free speech of white people for using the word “nig**r,” then why should they themselves be allowed to use it? If the word is bad, then it is bad no matter who uses it… right? It is a total lack of logic that has always puzzled many.

Well, a black New York businessman tried to claim in court that the infamous “N” word is a “term of endearment among blacks and that he should be allowed to say it all day long at work. A jury, though, disagreed saying that it was discriminatory no matter who said it.

Rob Carmona, President and co-founder of the East Harlem-based STRIVE–a non-profit minority employment agency–was taken to court by another African American, a woman who claimed that Carmona’s use of the word upset her and made her run to the bathroom to cry.

New York Bans in Schools Words Like: Gun, Dinosaur, War, Disease

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again, the New York Department of Education is in the word-banning business and is telling schools to ban dozens of words from use in the class room and on tests. And why are they banning the words? Because they might make kids “feel” bad. But, worse, some of the banned words would actually prevent learning!

One of the banned words, for instance is “slavery.” OK, so how do we discuss all of American history before the close of the Civil War if we are not allowed to use the word “slavery” in front of school kids? Just as bad, the words “war” and “religion” are also banned. There goes the rest of human history.

But maybe even worse, the DOE has banned the word “terrorism.” So, how do we teach what happened on 9/11?… Ah, I know, we tell kids that George Bush did it and America is evil to those poor, poor Muslims, that’s how.

NY Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott said the Dept. of Ed isn’t “an outlier” and not being PC in the banning of words and that schools all across America do it (as if that makes it right).

“So we’re not an outlier in being politically correct. This is just making sure that test makers are sensitive in the development of their tests,” Walcott said to the media in New York City.

A glance at the list below makes a liar of Mr. Walcott.

Mayors Quitting Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Group

New York Mayor Michael “Nanny” Bloomberg has been running all over the country claiming to represent hundreds of America’s mayors with his anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG). But Nanny Bloomberg is lately finding that many of those mayors are abandoning his anti-gun group over the mayor’s false advertising about just what his group is about.

A recent look at the 2012 membership rolls of MAIG finds that some 50 mayors have recently quit Bloomberg’s anti-Second Amendment group.

Of course, some of those mayors are off the list because they lost an election or have left office for whatever reason. But many have specifically asked to be removed from the group.

Two mayors in particular have left because they say that Bloomberg misled them about what MAIG was going to be about in the first place.

Fire Island is a tiny New York hamlet of about 200 full-time residents. Whose 1930s old-school land line phone connections were wiped out by Hurricane Sandy.

So wireless companies are — rather than rebuilding the very expensive, woefully outdated connections they had — switching them to a brand new, cutting edge Internet Protocol (IP) system.

This format is much, much better than the old-school system — in large part because it is far less regulated than the old-school system.

So the Left — which relies on regulatory regimes to impose their failed worldview and for their very existence — are freaking out.

All of this, and more, is explained in this guerrilla video.

More Anthony Weiner Sex Texts Revealed

July 23, 2013 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Elections, Ethics, Liberals, New York, New York City, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | 1 Comment

-By Warner Todd Huston

Anthony Weiner lost his seat in Congress in 2011 because he was caught exchanging sexually explicit messages (including naked photos) with a woman that was not his wife. This year he’s running for mayor of New York City but today he’s been exposed–if you will–in yet another sexting scandal..

Weiner has admitted that it is all true, too.

Here is his statement on the new allegations:

I said that other texts and photos were likely to come out, and today they have. As I have said in the past, these things that I did were wrong and hurtful to my wife and caused us to go through challenges in our marriage that extended past my resignation from Congress. While some things that have been posted today are true and some are not, there is no question that what I did was wrong. This behavior is behind me. I’ve apologized to Huma and am grateful that she has worked through these issues with me and for her forgiveness. I want to again say that I am very sorry to anyone who was on the receiving end of these messages and the disruption that this has caused. As my wife and I have said, we are focused on moving forward.

Weiner may try to characterize all this as merely being part of his earlier scandal, but it appears that the dates of this sexting scandal comes after the scandal that had him ejected from Congress.

It seems clear that he continued the very behavior that caused him to lose his seat in Congress even after he lost that seat.

What has he learned? Seemingly nothing at all.

Amusingly, he went by the false name “Carlos Danger” in these newest Tweets.

In a reversal of greenism, Michael Bloomberg’s New York Metropolitan Transit Agency is giving up on hybrid transportation.

The city with the mayor nicknamed “Nanny Bloomberg” may be stumping for all sorts of chic, activist causes, from the campaign to rid us of our Second Amendment rights, to the elimination of trans fats in our foods, to the downsizing of soda portions, but one cause the city is souring on is hybrid busses.

The New York Post reports that the city hasn’t bought a new hybrid buss in three years and is now moving to retrofit many of the ones it has with diesel engines.

The MTA is reporting that it will retrofit 389 hybrid electric busses with diesel engines because the hybrid engines are too unreliable and too expensive to repair.

“The electric-traction motors are burning out. They’re so expensive to replace that it’ll be cheaper to stick a diesel engine in there,” a source inside the MTA told the Post.

Criminal Unions: The Perfect ‘Government Union Fat Cat’ Story

Today’s example of why government unions should be outlawed is a union chief who ostensibly “works” for the people of New York. He has a grueling two-hour-a-day “work” schedule and spends that time eating lunch, then sleeping.

He’s a real life union fat cat, a perfect example of why government unions should be illegal, and the poster boy for union scumbaggery. He’s the 400-pound Mark Rosenthal, the president of Local 983 of District Council 37–New York’s largest blue-collar municipal-workers union–who earns $156,000 a year in New York’s tax dollars.

Take a look at these photos showing Rosenthal hard at “work”:

The New York Post reports that Rosenthal comes in at two, eats his lunch, takes a nap, then goes home at 4PM to “beat the traffic.”

Every day he uses union funds to buy oversized lunch orders, the leftovers of which he takes home to eat everyday.

Naturally this cretin claims he’s the victim of a “smear campaign.”

But, let’s face it, this guy is what government unions look like. Folks, while you are slaving away, paying taxes, or even finding yourself out of work, these union thieves are sponging off your tax dollars, doing little to nothing for you, and retiring at a young age to enjoy decades of an easy retirement on your dime.

Liberal hero, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, thought that government unions were a terrible idea. He was right. They should be outlawed and this morbidly obese Rosenthal is a perfect example of why.

This man is stealing from New York every day he is employed.

Living up to his promise to attack even Democrats that he deems insufficiently anti-gun, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced an ad buy to criticize Arkansas’ Democrat Senator Mark Pryor.

Pryor, who will be running for a third term in 2014, recently voted against the Toomey-Manchin anti-gun bill drawing the ire of Bloomberg and his Mayors Against Illegal Guns group.

Bloomberg’s group has announced a $350 thousand buy for a two-week campaign.

The video ad features former Democratic staffer Angela Bradford-Barnes mourning the loss of Democrat Party chairman Bill Gwatney who was shot to death in 2008 as he worked at party headquarters in Little Rock.

No motive for the shooting was ever determined by police.

In the anti-Pryor ad, Angela Bradford-Barnes mentions Gwatney’s murder and then says that she was “disappointed when Mark Pryor voted against comprehensive background checks.”

Feds Killing Off Private Bus Lines Based on Fraudulent Study

The story of the coming demise of Chinatown bus lines in New York City is a tale of multiple failures in both government and the media and shows that both have a bias against entrepreneurs that kills new, start up ideas with unfair regulations, faux public advocacy, and dismal reporting.

A “Chinatown buss” was a new idea in the late 90s pioneered by Chinese immigrants in the Big Apple. These were private buses that cruised the streets looking for fares like cabs do, picking customers up at curbside, not having fixed bus stops or routes, and going where ever the customer wanted to go within a defined area of the city. Because they originated in New York’s Chinatown area, they became known as “Chinatown busses.”

Unfortunately, their success led to their downfall when nosey politicians like Senator Chuck Schumer began to take notice of them. Schumer and other New York pols began to call for a crack down on the busses and started looking to hit them with an avalanche of stifling regulations meant to “save lives.”

To assist Schumer in that jobs-killing endeavor the National Transportation Safety Bureau jumped to conduct a “study” of the safety records of Chinatown busses and purported to have found that these busses had a death rate “seven times higher” than that of other services.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is at it again, this time going off on Governor Cuomo and many other state legislators claiming they aren’t fit for any job in the private sector.

In a recent interview on a New York TV station, Bloomberg slammed the state’s legislators saying, “The average legislator who has to make policy on things that influence our lives, our kids’ lives, our future, would they ever get a job in the private sector making policy on big things? No, not a chance.”

Bloomberg also slammed Gov. Cuomo for his frequent practice of attaching a “message of necessity” to bills sent to the legislature. This practice forces quick votes on bills and prevents lawmakers from having enough time to fully consider them before being expected to cast a vote.

New York Investigating Anti-Fracking Lobbying by Yoko One, Mark Ruffalo, Robert De Niro

A formal complaint has been filed with a New York lobbying board to investigate whether Yoko Ono, Robert De Niro and nearly 200 other celebrities have violated state laws with their Artists Against Fracking activist group.

Celebrities are well known for dabbling in social activism whether what they have to say makes sense or not and the recent cause célèbre is the anti-fracking movement. Along with Yoko Ono, actors Mark Ruffalo and Robert De Niro, and ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, the movement has drawn the support of some 200 celebrities all donating time and money to stop efforts toward American energy independence.

The group has sponsored rallies and concerts and on it’s website the celebrity group urges visitors to “Tell Governor Cuomo Don’t Frack New York!”

Pushing the issue on a national TV audience, Ono and son Sean even appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to sing a somewhat ridiculous anti-fracking song at the end of January.

A pro-Palestinian group has commissioned a new billboard ad now appearing at some New York Metro Stations. The ads attack Israel, U.S. foreign policy, and calls for an end to “Israeli Apartheid.”

American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), an Illinois-based advocacy group, bought space at 25 stations on the New York City Transit Authority’s Metro North line and will run these placards for a month before the campaign moves to another city.

AMP calls itself “a national grassroots organization educating the public about Palestine and its rich cultural and historical heritage.”

The placards quote South African Catholic Bishop and Nobel Peace Prize winner, Desmond Tutu: “I’ve been very deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa.”

The ad also says: “Americans give Israel $3 billion per year! End Apartheid NOW! Stop U.S. Aid to Israel.”

The ad features a silhouette photo of a gun-toting soldier and a small, crouching boy surrounded by prison-like concrete walls and towers.

In a front page story, The New York Times intimated that race was a deciding factor in how the New York Police Department determines who to stop in it’s proactive stop and frisk policy that has helped drive crime down to its lowest rate in many decades. The Times reports the words of a police commander secretly recorded during an evaluation with a patrolman but “the paper of record” distorts his words and leaves key parts of the recording out of its analysis making the commander seem to be basing his criteria solely on race.

The suit also alleges that there are racial quotas in the policy that “encourage officers to stop people unlawfully.”

On Thursday, Channel 4, WNBC in New York, interviewed a man that lives in the neighborhood of the store.

“There are certain things that have been used to put down black people,” Woody Henderson told reporters.
