New York Mayor Bill de Blasio emphatically backed New Governor Andrew Cuomo’s controversial remarks that “extreme” conservatives – which he defined as being pro-life, second amendment advocates, or supporters of traditional marriage – “have no place in the state of New York.” “I stand by that 100 percent,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “I agree with Governor Cuomo’s remarks. I interpret his remarks to say that an extremist attitude that continues the reality of violence in our communities or an extremist attitude that denies the rights of women does not

Presidents Day seems to have no equal when when it comes to how the occupants of the White House and vice president´s residence vacation. According to new records obtained by the taxpayer watchdog group Judicial Watch, three separate jaunts taken by President Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, and Vice President Joe Biden during last year´s Presidents Day weekend cost at least $295,437. And that’s mostly just for security, not Air Force One or other official costs. The records were obtained from the U.S. Secret Service and details some of the "security and/or other services" of Obama’s mid-February 2013 golf trip

President Obama will partner with Google for the "first-ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip," Google announced today. "Next Tuesday, at 9pm EST, President Obama will deliver his annual State of the Union address to Congress. Later that week, you´ll have the chance to connect with the President and speak about his administration’s plan in the first-ever Presidential Hangout Road Trip," claims Google in a blog post. But it would appear the "Road Trip" does not require the president to hit the road: On Friday, January 31, President Obama will “travel” the country in a virtual whistlestop tour. He’ll hop into Google+ Hangouts with people

A state legislative committee investigating the traffic jams has also issued subpoenas to the two organizations. Sheridan says the Republican governor´s campaign and the party will cooperate with investigators. The traffic lane closures created gridlock in the town of Fort

The annual March for Life took place yesterday in our nation’s capital, and MSNBC marked the occasion by inviting a slew of pro-choice guests onto its daytime programming to slime the pro-life movement without giving any pro-lifers a chance to respond. Between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Wednesday, MSNBC featured six pro-choice guests and zero pro-life guests. During the 11 a.m. hour of MSNBC Live, host Brian Shactman brought on Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, to offer her predictable insight on the march and abortion rights in general. Shactman began by attempting to marginalize the march --

A former high-ranking San Francisco government employee convicted of felony possession of child pornography will continue to receive his government pension because, according to city regulations, evidence of “moral turpitude” is required to revoke a pension yet viewing violent kiddie porn does not qualify as moral turpitude. As reported here in the Tatler, Larry Brinkin, a prominent San Francisco Human Rights Commissioner and nationally known gay rights advocate, was arrested in 2012 for possessing and possibly distributing videos and images of babies being raped by adult men. Because of Brinkin’s “iconic” stature in the community as the person who pioneered

President Obama approaches next Tuesday´s State of the Union address with low job approval ratings over his handling of two issues that voters consider their top priorities, according to a new poll. Fifty-six percent of respondents in the Quinnipiac University survey disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy, their No. 1 priority. Voters who identified as independent disapproved by 60 percent. Comparably, a narrow majority of those who identified as moderate expressed approval, 48 percent to 47 percent. Not surprisingly, conservatives disapproved by 79 percent to 16 percent, nearly the inverse of liberals, who approved by 71 percent to 23 percent. Health

A Caltrans engineer and an outside expert working on the Bay Bridge eastern span accused agency officials of discounting warnings about cracked welds on the bridge, and telling them not to put their concerns in writing to keep them from becoming public, according to a report commissioned for a state Senate committee. An official overseeing the long-delayed, $6.4 billion project told a Caltrans engineer who had examined the Chinese-made welds "not to record his concerns in writing, either on paper or e-mail, but rather to communicate orally," said the report for the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee, which

The U.S. is likely to exhaust its borrowing authority on the earlier side of what Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had estimated, he said in a letter to Congressional leaders on Wednesday. Lew warned in the new letter that Congress will likely need to raise the debt ceiling by late February to avoid a potential default on the country´s obligations. As part of the bill to reopen the government in mid-October, the debt limit was suspended through Feb. 7. The Treasury can use so-called "extraordinary measures" after that point to keep borrowing and paying the nation´s bills for a few weeks thereafter. "While this

It´s the kind of money maneuver disgraced stock broker Jordan Belfort would applaud. Martin Scorsese´s The Wolf of Wall Street, nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, got a cozy tax break from the state of New York where the movie was shot.f How cozy? Thanks to state law, The Wolf of Wall Street received a 30-percent tax credit from New York State, which means taxpayers paid for $30 million of the movie´s $100 million budget, according to the Manhattan Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan economic research and policy group.

Ever since The Heritage Foundation announced it was hiring Stephen Moore to be the think tank´s chief economist, there have been rumblings on the left hoping that the new hire signaled a coming policy change on immigration. (Snip) Contra TPM, amnesty activists should not get their hopes up. Moore´s hiring in no way portends a shift in Heritage´s immigration position. Reached for comment, one Heritage staffer said, "This is nothing more than liberal daydreaming. Research has shown that amnesty is costly, unfair, and won’t solve our immigration problems.

Women’s Health Rapid Response Fund accused Republicans of embracing a “revolting anti-choice agenda” for supporting pro-life candidates and organizations. The media and fundraising apparatus of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is making the most of the 41st anniversary of “Roe v Wade.” They are imploring supporters for donations to “show Boehner that there are consequences for Republicans unrelenting war against women.” Moreover, the fundraising letter cites that Republicans are trying to bring a bill to the house floor that could force rape survivors to face “abortion audits.” Many Republicans, Independents and tea party supporters believe that Democrats and the left conflate women’s rights

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe early today, the panel discussed the growing controversy over the accuracy and truthfulness of claims made by Texas Gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis. The segment has a scare chyron across the bottom of the screen that laments “GUBERNATORIAL RACE GETS UGLY EARLY.” Oh fret and bother. Mika Brzezinski tells us that Republicans have “pounced” on the “discrepancies,” and then tosses to NBC News political reporter Kasie Hunt, who immediately brings up what is sure to be the talking point du jour, the “basic narrative.” The basic narrative is correct, you see, even if the details are wrong.

The U.S. Supreme Court announced on January 10th that it will consider a First Amendment challenge to an Ohio law that makes it a crime to "lie" about political candidates, which a pro-life PAC says was used to censor its political speech during the 2010 mid-term congressional election. “The court decided that our case was worth listening to because of a concern about a potential chill on speech,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B.

In David Remnick’s nearly 17,000-word article in the New Yorker, President Obama spoke about whether the use of drones was radicalizing civilian populations we need to win over: Look, you wrestle with it. And those who have questioned our drone policy are doing exactly what should be done in a democracy—asking some tough questions. The only time I get frustrated is when folks act like it’s not complicated and there aren’t some real tough decisions, and are sanctimonious, as if somehow these aren’t complicated questions. Even if you have, as I do, some sympathy with the point the president is making, this

Marxist leftists have prepared a nightmarish blueprint for American socialism in a new revolutionary "book of imagination." The new book, "Imagine Living in a Socialist USA," was edited by Frances Goldin who praises "life-enhancing socialism" in the preface. The 281 page manifesto showcases 31 utopian essays written by dangerous criminals, prominent liberals, and self-described communists - all for just $10.11. It imagines a "free" and "enlightened" socialist United States, promoting radical notions such as eliminating prisons and creating mandatory worker-owned businesses. More dangerously, it details "how to get from where we are to where we want to be," and the authors seem

The company that conducted a background investigation on the contractor Edward J. Snowden fraudulently signed off on hundreds of thousands of incomplete security checks in recent years, the Justice Department said Wednesday. The government said the company, U.S. Investigations Services, defrauded the government of millions of dollars by submitting more than 650,000 investigations that had not been completed. The government uses those reports to help make hiring decisions and decide who gets access to national security secrets. In addition to Mr. Snowden, the company performed the background check for Aaron Alexis, a 34-year-old military contractor who killed 12 people at the Washington
