A gunman shot and killed two New York City police officers before taking his own life in a brazen ambush that played out on a quiet Brooklyn street corner Saturday afternoon, New York police said. Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot at point-blank range while sitting beside one another in a police car in the East Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, police said. “It’s clear that this was an assassination,” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a news conference Saturday night. “These officers were shot execution-style, a particularly despicable act which goes to the heart of

It is sad that there is so much bad news so close to Christmas. The best thing we can say for our president is that he has departed for Hawaii on a 17-day vacation, so he can’t do any more damage until after the new year. Meanwhile, we could all use a day brightener. So here is one, via the Facebook account of a mother of twin daughters who were born with a rare heart defect. One died, and the other is undergoing treatment at the Children’s Medical Center in Dallas. On Tuesday, Santa came to the hospital to deliver

Talk about sending the arsonist to put out the fire. Rolling Stone made it known that a re-reporting mission will be assembled to address the abysmal journalism in their disgraceful Nov. 19 story about an alleged gang rape at the University of Virginia. Sabrina Rubin Erdely wrote the piece and came under fire for failing, amongst other things, to reach out to the alleged attackers for their account of the night’s events. Now, it seems Erdely is re-reporting what happened on the night of the alleged assault, a night where the fraternity allegedly at fault held no social gathering. To

A throng of NYPD officers at New York’s Woodhull Hospital turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio as he arrived at a press conference on the execution-style murder of two New York cops, with police union president Pat Lynch claiming the mayor has “blood on [his] hands.” The two officers were killed on Saturday as they sat in their patrol car by a Baltimore man, whose social media posts strongly suggest he traveled to New York to take revenge for the killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police. Many NYPD officers were angry at

Diplomacy: As the Castros rejoice at President Obama´s move to normalize ties, extend trade credits, take their country off the terror list and free its deadly spies, the queasy question remains: What did the U.S. get in return? The question is being asked by the more serious leaders in Washington. Marco Rubio for one. "(Obama´s) foreign policy is, at a minimum, naive and perhaps truly counterproductive to the future of democracy in the region," said the Florida senator in the wake of the giveaway. "Barack Obama is the worst negotiator that we´ve had as president since at least Jimmy Carter, and maybe

Mayor Bill de Blasio said this is ´not the time for politics´ following the murder of two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday. This as New York City´s police commissioner said the gunman who ambushed and killed two police officers had made online posts that were ´very anti-police.´ Police Commissioner William Bratton choked up at a news conference at the Woodhull medical Center on Saturday afternoon as he talked about the fatal shootings of two officers in Brooklyn´s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood. ´They were, quite simply, assassinated--targeted for their uniform. ...

Energy: New York state found that fracking would mean more than 50,000 jobs for eight economically depressed counties bordering Pennsylvania. In banning it, Gov. Andrew Cuomo chose green over black gold. Before his re-election, New York´s Democrat governor saturated the state´s TV screens with taxpayer-funded commercials touting a new pro-business era in the deep-blue Empire State. The accompanying state government website, "thenewny.com," claimed that "Big Happens Here!" New York state, it said, has "the fastest-growing tech sector in America" plus "the lowest middle-class tax rate in over half a century. "And with one of the best-educated workforces in America," the site goes on, "it´s

The group responsible for the Sony Pictures hack has apparently sent a new message that mocks the FBI for its investigation into the devastating cyberattack. An email claiming to be from Guardians of Peace, the group that took credit for last month´s attack on Sony´s systems, was sent to journalists early Saturday.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis pointed the finger of blame at Mayor Bill de Blasio for growing "anti-police sentiment" as she and other Staten Island politicians spoke out against the shooting of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn. Ms. Malliotakis (R-East Shore/Brooklyn) also cited as evidence of escalating animosity toward the police the attacks on two NYPD lieutenants on the Brooklyn Bridge during a protest against the Staten Island special grand jury decision to not indict NYPD Office Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. When asked by the Advance if Saturday´s shootings had any connection to the

Did you notice the timing of President Obama’s economic lifeline to Castro as announced on December 17th under the guise of “changing our relations” with the people (emphasis mine) of Cuba?” No? But you have noticed the price at the gas pumps, right? These two items are closely related ….Oh and by the way, every atom of evidence shows that the actual people of Cuba actually want U.S. sanctions against the Stalinist regime that tortures them tightened. So perhaps President Obama should stop insulting the intelligence of Cuba-watchers by claiming to speak and act on their behalf. Here’s their reaction to

NEW YORK – The Rev. Al Sharpton and several community leaders are speaking out about their outrage regarding the execution-style death of two NYPD officers Saturday afternoon. In a statement released Saturday night, Sharpton said he spoke with the Garner family regarding the shooting. “Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehensible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases,” the statement said. “We have stressed at every rally and march that anyone engaged in any violence is an enemy to the pursuit of justice

The cold-blooded cop-hater who gunned down two police officers in Brooklyn on Saturday is suspected of being a member of a notorious prison gang that has declared open season on the NYPD. Detectives were headed to Baltimore on Saturday night to probe Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s ties to the Black Guerrilla Family, sources told the Daily News. One source said Baltimore police were already investigating Brinsley’s connection to the gang, which started in California’s San Quentin Prison in the 1960s by Black Panther member George Jackson. “BGF has been talking about getting back at cops for Eric Garner and Ferguson,”

President Obama thought 2014 was a good year. “As 2014 comes to an end, we can enter the New Year with new confidence that America is making significant strides where it counts,” he said in his weekly address. Obama highlighted job growth over the course of his tenure: “Our businesses have created nearly 11 million new jobs.” He also touched on on the positive effect the U.S. had on the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the change in relations with Cuba and the conclusion of the war in Afghanistan — among other good domestic and abroad strides. “Pick any metric

President Obama’s sweeping changes to Cuba policy are expected to dominate the Sunday talk shows this week, with one of the harshest critics of the president’s efforts to normalize diplomatic relations — Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) — appearing on each of the broadcast networks’ telecasts. Obama will have a chance to defend the policy himself in a rare Sunday show appearance, sitting down with Candy Crowley for her last episode as host of CNN’s “State of the Union.” The veteran political correspondent is leaving the network after 27 years. Rubio has been harshly critical of the president’s policy changes, which

Last weekend, Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee forced every senator to vote, on the public record, regarding the constitutionality of President Obama’s unilateral decree of effective amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. The resulting Republican establishment hissy fit further confirmed something I’ve been arguing here for some time: Republican leaders in Washington endorse President Obama’s amnesty policy. Their stated opposition to the imperial manner of the policy’s imposition is poseur stuff. When push comes to shove, when the time comes to do something about presidential lawlessness, what do we get? Childish tantrums over being forced to work on a mid-December

Darlene Love´s "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" performance has been an annual yuletide tradition on David Letterman´s late night shows for nearly 30 years. But with Letterman set to retire in May 2015, Love visited the Late Show one final time to sing her classic from A Christmas Gift for You, Rolling Stone´s Greatest Christmas Album of All Time. The tradition began in 1986 when Love first performed "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" on Letterman´s Late Night program on NBC, and while a small four-piece band backed the "He´s a Rebel" singer for that rendition, the size of the
