NEW YORK - If you live in New York City, it probably comes as no surprise to hear that rats are becoming increasingly visible all across the Big Apple. Sightings of the rodents are up a stunning 70% from this time two years ago, with New Yorkers calling in some 21,557 rat sightings to the city's 3-1-1 service request line between January 1 and September 30. That's up from 18,601 rat calls during the same period last year. In recent months, the city has tried to control its vermin problem with a number of attempted solutions, including putting a limit on


Many of those are Demo-rats. It's an election year so they are out and about.

Name a dem-controlled city that isn’t a third world hellhole with its rat plagues. Come to think of it, a rat is infinitely more suitable as a symbol for the Democrat Communist Party than a donkey.

Send out the canvassers (make sure they are vaccinated). Go after the non-human vote. Get them registered. Fill out mail in ballots. Hochul gonna need every vote she can get! It's New York so it is all legal.

Those street booths so the Covid cowards could eat their dinner in the street are teaming with rats. When they tear them down they scatter into the area. If only those poor clowns still eating outside knew what was beneath their feet.

A Quinnipiac University poll shows Democratic incumbent Kathy Hochul with a slight edge on Republican challenger Lee Zeldin in the New York governor's race. The poll shows Hochul holding a 50% to 46% margin over Zeldin. Hochul leads in New York City by a 59% to 37% margin. However, Zeldin has a slim 50% to 49% lead in suburban communities. Quinnipiac University Poll Analyst Mary Snow said the race will be decided by key issues voters will focus on come Election Day. “Crime ranks as the number one issue and the most urgent issue for New York state likely voters,"

A group of violent Philadelphia ATV drivers was caught on video attacking police by throwing bricks and bottles at the officers before fleeing the scene, police said. The group unleashed its assault on police just one day after a Republican city councilman accused the administration of Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, of instructing officers "not to enforce the law." The Philadelphia Police Department shared video on Tuesday that showed "a large group of people riding dirt bikes and ATVs" around a gas station near Delaware Avenue and Spring Garden Street, police said.

Republican Mehmet Oz has narrowed Democrat John Fetterman’s lead in Pennsylvania’s bare-knuckle Senate election, and the two candidates are now polling inside the margin of error, according to a new survey shared exclusively with POLITICO. Fetterman is slightly ahead with 48 percent of likely voters, while Oz has 46 percent, the poll by AARP found. That’s a shift in Oz’s direction since June, when Fetterman, the state’s lieutenant governor, was leading by six percentage points in the AARP survey.

An article in The Atlantic essentially confirmed NBC journalist Dasha Burns’ widely disputed claim that Pennsylvania Democratic Senate candidate John Fetterman appears to have problems making conversation without the use of closed captioning, noting he had difficulty responding "meaningfully" to voter questions. In a Sunday piece headlined, "Do Voters Care About John Fetterman’s Stroke?," Atlantic staff writer Elaine Godfrey noted that Fetterman "still struggles to process the words that he hears, and sometimes he can’t quite express what he means" five months after he suffered a stroke. She also noted that his wife Gisele, who a Rolling Stone writer called

One of Vladimir Putin’s mobilisation chiefs has been found dead in “suspicious” circumstances prompting a murder investigation. The body of Lt-Col Roman Malyk, 49, was discovered near the fence of his home as the Russian tyrant announced his chaotic mobilisation was being called off. Last month, Putin ordered the mobilisation of 300,000 extra soldiers to the frontline as his disastrous war continues to falter with Moscow losing ground on the battlefield. Police investigating the death of Malyk have opened a murder probe but have not ruled out suicide. Some reports said Putin's enlistment chief died from hanging. His “suspicious” death

On May 11, Vice President Kamala Harris cast the deciding vote in favor of Alvaro Bedoya’s nomination to serve on the Federal Trade Commission. This brought Harris to number three on the list of most tiebreaking votes by a vice president in American history. Since then, Harris has cast a six tiebreaking votes and is just five away from tying John C. Calhoun for the record. Yet Harris’s accomplishment also stands out for the fact that she has cast her tiebreaking votes at a faster rate than any of her predecessors. The magnitude of Harris’s record over less than two

A selfie crowd formed around Pete Buttigieg as he stood in line for coffee at the airport in Washington. One woman said she wasn’t going to stop because she wasn’t sure it was him. “It’s me,” the Transportation secretary replied. An older man explained to his wife, “That’s Pete BOOT-GUG,” missing the pronunciation and the emphasis. “He’s the President’s…” the man said, unable to come up with his job title. And yet, it’s Buttigieg – whose only political experience before his failed presidential bid was serving as mayor of South Bend, Indiana – who has become the most requested surrogate

President Biden is expected to pledge during a Tuesday night speech that his top legislative priority after the midterms will be codifying a national right to abortion, should the Democratic Party retain control of the House and expand its Senate footprint. During his remarks at the Howard Theater in Washington, D.C. Tuesday night, Biden is expected to pledge that the first bill he will send to legislators in a new Democratic Congress will codify Roe v. Wade, the New York Times first reported. The move is intended to galvanize his support among Democratic and independent women as his polling numbers slump ahead of November’s midterm elections.

A jury on Tuesday found Russian national Igor Danchenko, the primary sub-source of the anti-Trump dossier, not guilty on all four counts of making false statements to the FBI. The charges had been brought by Special Counsel John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the FBI's original Trump-Russia investigation. The Danchenko trial is the second out of Durham's years-long investigation, and the second time a jury delivered an acquittal. Former Clinton campaign attorney Michael Sussmann was found not guilty of making false statements to the FBI in June.

Of the two suspects who were shot, one was killed at the scene of the attempted robbery and so police had to do no searching for him.

Speaking at a forum at Harvard University, Cheney stressed the subpoena, which the House select committee approved unanimously last week, is for Trump's testimony and for documents related to events surrounding the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. "So we'll be issuing a subpoena shortly, both for his testimony under oath as well as for documents. And we'll take whatever next steps we have to take assuming that he will fulfill his legal obligation and honor the subpoena, but if that doesn't happen, we'll take the steps after that," Cheney said.

After the Supreme Court ruling, there was huge outrage. That has seemed to subside, at least among overriding concerns.

I’ll bet they are. The problem for Democrats, however, won’t just revolve around their deeply unpopular Demagogue in Chief and the albatross he’s hung around their necks. After the smoke from the midterm referendum on Joe Biden clears, the party will have the same problem they had in 2020, 2016, and every midterm in the past dozen years except 2018. Keep that in mind when reading The Hill’s report on “contingency plans” already being considered even before the election results come in: Democrats behind the scenes are already talking about and making contingency plans for 2024 in case President Biden decides not to seek a second term, moves expected to intensify
