The ringleader of a robbery crew that raided a SoHo Chanel store in front of stunned security guards and customers boasted he could “open a small boutique” with the nearly $200,000 in merchandise they made off with, prosecutors charged Monday. Eric Spencer, 29, was arrested over the weekend in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and faces up to 20 years for the mid-day Feb. 2 stickup. He and three others allegedly entered the swanky store on Spring St. and began snatching handbags and other luxury items off the walls. A security guard confronted Spencer, who flashed the handle of a firearm in his waistband,

Comments:

Bill De Blasio says Covid is responsible for the retail woes in the Rotten Apple, rather than the unchecked crime and vandalism he allows, give or take the shutdowns, and Charles Steamer then mugs the taxpayers in the rest of New America for bailout money, again blaming Covid and maybe Global Warming too.

This too; good haul, unsafe business environment: "A thief made off with nearly $60,000 in stogies from a Midtown cigar shop, police said Monday. The burglar entered Davidoff of Geneva on Sixth Avenue near W. 56th Street just after 1:30 a.m. from a vacant store next to the cigar shop, according to cops. Police say the thief grabbed three bags of cigars, valued at $57,000, and took off in a car." https://nypost.com/2021/02/22/thief-nabs-nearly-60k-in-stogies-from-nyc-cigar-shop/

The Biden team is talking a tough game on new illegal immigration, but behind the scenes it’s making frantic efforts to get ready for what it expects to be massive “border surges” of migrants streaming north over the next months, according to an internal Homeland Security email. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is scrambling to find bigger airplanes and figure out more ground transport capacity for soaring numbers of illegal immigrants, and is even talking with a company that runs “Man Camps” for oil workers in Texas to see whether it will rent bed space for the incoming wave of illegal immigrants.

The U.S. Justice Department has removed its support for a federal lawsuit in Connecticut that seeks to reverse a state policy allowing the participation of transgender athletes in girl’s high school sports. The lawsuit was filed a year ago by several cisgender runners who argue they have been deprived of wins, state titles and athletic opportunities by being forced to compete against two transgender sprinters. The Justice Department’s move comes just days before a Friday hearing on a motion to dismiss that lawsuit.(Snip) In a filing Tuesday, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham and other department officials withdrew Barr’s statement, saying “The government has

Dr. Anthony Fauci declared this week that people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 still shouldn’t dine indoors at restaurants or go to movie theaters “because of the safety of society,” even as the number of positive cases in the country continues to decline. “There are certain aspects of being vaccinated and what that means to you personally and your own personal safety and that of your family, versus what vaccines will allow you to do in society,” Dr. Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said during a White House COVID-19 press briefing. “One relates to you, yourself,

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Republicans are butting heads over the number of members from each party that will make up the proposed 9/11-style commission tasked with investigating the January 6 insurrection. Politico reported Monday that Republicans are demanding an equal number of seats on the commission, despite being in the minority in both chambers. Pelosi has floated Democrats getting to pick seven members, while Republicans would choose four. Under the Democratic proposal, reported by Politico, Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell would each choose two members of the commission.

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen signaled the administration is open to new corporate taxes but dismissed the idea of a 'wealth levy,' saying President Joe Biden opposes it. Yellen said Biden favors boosting taxes on companies and could raise rates on capital gains, noting the idea was 'worth considering.' The administration is looking to boost the corporate tax to 28 per cent, Yellen noted. But she ruled out a wealth tax—an idea favored by progressives. 'A wealth tax has been discussed but is not something President Biden' favors, Yellen said at a virtual Dealbook/DC Policy Project conference Monday hosted by the New York Times.

Mask mandates are in jeopardy in one state. The North Dakota House of Representatives, on a 50-44 vote, passed a bill Monday that would ban any future mask-wearing mandates. The bill, which is now headed for the state Senate, follows the repeal in January of a November order by Republican Gov. Doug Burgum requiring the wearing of masks in public, though some local mandates remain. State Rep. Jeff Hoverson, Minot Republican, called all mask mandates “diabolical silliness” and the conspiracy of “unelected, wealthy bureaucrats who are robbing our freedoms and perpetuating lies,” according to a report in the Grand Forks Herald.

Harlem, Manhattan—NYPD officers will stay out of many mental health crisis calls and social workers will respond instead in parts of northern Manhattan starting this spring. The head of the city's wide-ranging mental health initiative gave some details of the test program to lawmakers Monday, fleshing out a plan the city outlined broadly in November. The test program will begin in three Harlem and East Harlem police precincts that together accounted for over 7,400 mental health-related 911 calls last year. Still, some important specifics remain to be seen in practice. Mental health advocates have hailed the idea but expressed some reservations

For a couple of years, my wife and I escaped Obama’s America by owning a Pacific Ocean hotel in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. The irony was that in supposedly socialist Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega's government left us alone far more than government did in the supposedly free country of the United States of Obama. Still, while Ortega 2.0 might have shed most of his socialism, he had not shed his lust for power, and the job of making sure he never lost again was that of the Chief Justice Roberto Rivas Reyes of what is in effect the Nicaraguan Supreme Court.

Governor Greg Abbott requested statewide designation for major disaster relief from President Biden. Biden denied the statewide designation and only approved some counties in Texas, not all of them. Abbott asked for a declaration that covered the entire state because the winter storm knocked out power and heat throughout the state, as well as leaving millions of Texans without water. Texas has 254 counties. Biden approved only 77 counties for disaster relief. The governor calls it an important first step but it falls far short of what Texas officials requested. Biden signed the declaration late Friday. It covers much of the Texas population.
