Don’t let them find out about ‘Wall’ Street. The City Council’s Committee on Immigration is mulling a bill that would bar municipal government workers from using the terms “alien,” “illegal alien” or “illegal immigrant” in official documents. “I introduced this bill because words matter and the language we use or choose to use has power and consequences,” said Councilman Francisco Moya (D-Queens) — who first floated the proposal late last month — in a Thursday committee hearing. The legislation proposes the term “noncitizen” as an alternative.

Comments:

Next up: barring terms like illegal kidnapper, mugger, executioner, rapist, and cop-killer.
That should improve the crime statistics too.

Why doesn't New York also change its name to New Oceania.

In essence what they are doing is replacing the term illegal alien, that exists in the federal immigration laws, with the leftist and liberal Democrat created term, prospective Democrat socialist voters.

Someone should tell these ignoramuses that "illegal alien" is the statutory term used in Title 8 of the United States Code.

Probably need to bar the use of words like Sexual assault, rape, shoplifting, speeding and many others. Could his name (Francisco Moya) indicate a racial/ethnic preference?

Why do Demon-Rats hate our Constitutional rights so much?!?!?!? Seriously, they constantly want to put more and more limits on what we can say, do, own, etc, etc!!!! Of course, they know they have to destroy the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution to have any real chance to destroy the rest of the Constitution!!!! But, until they can succeed at destroying the 2nd Amendment, they are going to nip away at the rest of the Constitution!!!!!

This madness is why we all must never vote for a democrat for any public office. They must be squeezed out of politics along with their toxic ideology. Most of us probably didn’t think that democrats serving on city councils and such were not a real threat. Now we know differently. Since all politics are local, we cannot afford to have any democrat spewing their rancid philosophy even if it about something as mundane as dog tags. They absolutely destroy everything they touch. Get them out and keep them out. Now more than ever, Trump 2020!

New Oceania is here, along with Orwell's New Speak. Once New Speak is completely adopted, thought crimes become impossible - only Big Brother's approved opinions can be uttered. The Left has been attacking our language for decades and is showing signs of winning the battle. Many conservatives seem unaware that there is an existential struggle for free speech.

Since #16 is fundamentally ambiguous, let me clarify by saying the law should ban illegal aliens not just in words, but in reality. The law should mean what it says.

A WPIX cameraman was fired after a Muslim anchorwoman and other station staffers falsely accused him of racism and Islamaphobia, he claims in an explosive lawsuit. “I feel heartbroken and morally and professionally violated,” Ken Evseroff, 52, told The Post. In October 2018 Narmeen Choudhury, who had worked with Evseroff in the field as a reporter when not filling in on the anchor desk, first complained to the station’s human resources department about Evseroff. The Queens-born Choudhury, 38, a Muslim Bangladeshi-American and mother of two who has worked at WPIX since 2011, claimed the white Evseroff made “rude, racist and/or sexist comments” during nearly every assignment they

Never put a time limit on your doomsday predictions. This rookie error has been the undoing of charlatans, cultists and false prophets through the ages, from Martin of Tours, who predicted that the world would end by 400, to Harold Camping, who claimed it would happen on Sept. 6, 1994. The latest poor saps to join the oops club are the authorities in charge of Montana’s Glacier National Park. For years they’ve been warning on their visitor signs that their main attraction, the glaciers, would be “gone by 2020.” Instead, it’s those misleading signs that have had to go, because 2020 has now arrived and those pesky glaciers

A man was stabbed with what appears to have been a machete Thursday morning in Manhattan, according to police. The victim was stabbed on 30th Street and Fifth Avenue in Midtown just before 9 a.m. by a suspect who then hopped into the passenger seat of a gray Honda and took off, cops said. Police are now hunting for the suspect, who was described as a male in his 30s, possibly with a face tattoo. The victim was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

These are the two dozen new photos revealing Bill Clinton’s 2002 trip to Africa aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Express” — with other celebrities and an Epstein accuser in tow. The slew of images, obtained Thursday by The Post, show a smiling Clinton posing alongside Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell and Chauntae Davies, the masseuse who has accused the dead financier of rape. The humanitarian trip, which Davies says was hosted by Clinton’s foundation, also included actors Kevin Spacey and Chris Tucker, who appear in shots with Davies and Maxwell.

When Sen. Mazie Hirono suggested Americans should "believe in climate change as though it's a religion," some enterprising Canadians were listening. A website called Shrine On is among the many selling Greta Thunberg prayer candles, so supplicants can ask the climate gods to stop destroying us or something. "Pray to Saint Greta Thunberg, Saint of Climate Change," the Shrine On description reads. The candle, which includes a picture of Greta Thunberg dressed up as Jesus Christ often is in votive candles, sells for $18 plus shipping. The Etsy listing is slightly cheaper at $14.43, and it reveals that the item will be ready to ship from Canada in 3-5 business days.

One of the several downsides in watching too much football this past weekend was watching too many TV commercials. And although I had grown used to the “stupid white man” trope, now a staple of comic advertising, I was unprepared for AT&T’s impressively racist and sexist “Just OK is not OK” campaign. The larger message of the campaign is that “when it comes to wireless networks, just OK is not OK.” According to some dubious test, AT&T is allegedly “America’s best network.” To launch this concept, AT&T and its marketing geniuses at the Omnicom Group designed a series of scenarios in which an incompetent white professional or service worker offers

The couple who shot up a kosher market in Jersey City last month and the suspect in the Hanukkah stabbings in upstate Monsey had connections to the Black Hebrew Israelites, a secretive sect with some members preaching hate against Jews. David Anderson, one of the shooters killed in the Dec. 10 firefight which resulted in six dead, published rabid anti-Semitic screeds on social media and was inspired by the group. Grafton Thomas, the accused stabber who injured five Hanukkah celebrants inside a rabbi’s home last week, had attended the sect’s house of worship in East Harlem. Months before the two attacks, in early

For decades, land-use regulation across the U.S. has emphasized single-family houses on large lots. This approach has priced many people out of the quintessential American dream: home ownership. It also has promoted suburban sprawl — a pattern of low-density, car-dependent development that has dominated growth at the edges of urban areas since the end of World War II. Now, however, Americans may be starting to question the desirability of a private house. In the past year, the Minneapolis City Council and the state of Oregon have voted to allow duplexes and other types of multi-unit housing in neighborhoods where currently only single-family homes currently are allowed.

The Washington Post recently published a surprising indictment of MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. Post media critic Erik Wemple wrote that Maddow deliberately misled her audience by claiming the now-discredited Steele dossier was largely verifiable — even at a time when there was plenty of evidence that it was mostly bogus. At the very time Maddow was reassuring viewers that ex-spook Christopher Steele was believable, populist talk radio and the much-criticized Fox News Channel were insisting that most of Steele’s allegations simply couldn’t be true.

This will not be a Benghazi,” vowed President Donald Trump to reporters on New Year’s Eve. “This will never, ever be a Benghazi.” A spot-on analogy. So far, so good. It looks like a seizure of the U.S. embassy in Baghdad by Iranian militants has been averted. In so doing, President Trump — with full credit to our troops — has averted not only a Benghazi but a Jimmy Carter. The parallels between what happened in the Middle East the final week of December 2019 and what happened in the Middle East the final weeks of 1979 are chilling.

Hollywood celebrity is tough to shuck, at least for Meghan Markle, last seen in a starring role as Duchess of Sussex. Instead of marveling at her fairy tale ending with her marriage to Prince Harry in the U.K., she's made it clear she wants to go back to the Hollywood celebrity circuit, that "b" list group that makes loud leftwing noises to get attention -- and movie roles. Harry can come along for the ride if he wants, but he's probably going to get chewed up and spat out in the long run. She'll dump him when he gets inconvenient.

Harry and Meghan don’t know how good they have it. They want to bust out of their gilded cage and roam free, but they’re so naive they’re like fluffy kitties who have never crossed a busy road before and are likely to get squashed if they try. A key motivation to the shocking Megxit announcement this week — even as the Queen warned Meghan and Prince Ginger Whiskers against going public with their moronic plan — was their fury with the media. They hate the “Royal Rota” system, in which a designated royal reporter and photographer cover their events as representatives of the entire media and the royals

For most of the twenty-first century, the world’s oldest surviving democracy has been led by a chief executive who received fewer votes than his opponent in an election for the position. The first of these executives started a war based on false pretenses that killed hundreds of thousands of civilians. The second — a serial abuser of women who hired as his campaign manager a lobbyist for violent dictatorships - authorized an immigration policy that forcibly separated migrant children from their families and indefinitely detained them in facilities described as “concentration camps.” Democracy, as they say, is messy.

The number one story in the news in Great Britain (and a major story around the world) is the apparent abandonment of the Royal Family by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The story obviously has a strong personal element, but it also strikes me as emblematic of our time. The British monarchy is not just ancient, but profoundly old-fashioned. It is founded on a concept of duty, exemplified by Queen Elizabeth II, that is utterly at odds with the 21st century. Being a Royal is a great job, most would say, but it inherently involves sacrifice.
