Elect Altschuler in
1st Congressional District

Newsday [Melville, NY], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Not your typical New Yorker, 10/30/2012 1:28:05 PM

Two years ago, newcomer Randy Altschuler came within 593 votes of unseating incumbent Tim Bishop in a dramatic vote count that lasted for more than a month. Now he's back to try again, in a congressional race that's garnering national attention -- and dollars. House Speaker John Boehner dropped by Nissequogue recently, to raise money for Republican Altschuler, 41, who co-founded CloudBlue Technologies, an electronics recycling company. Independent spending in the contest has so far exceeded $3 million. On Friday, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo held a rally for Bishop in Hauppauge.

Comments:
This surprised me when I came across it, Newsday is Long Islands leftist newspaper.

Just goes to show how much of a slug incumbent far left congressman Tim Bishop really is.

And he IS!

De Blasio booed by
Mets fans during 1st pitch
New York Post, by Beth DeFalco, Priscilla DeGregory*    Original Article

Mets fans greeted Mayor de Blasio with hearty Bronx cheers on Monday, before he left early on the Amazins’ bitter Opening Day loss. Donning a pinstripe home white jersey and blue Mets cap over dress pants, de Blasio was loudly booed twice by Flushing faithful — once as he was announced and then again as he left the Citi Field diamond. The wave of boos didn’t get to de Blasio, who kept his cool, kicked and delivered from just in front of the pitcher’s mound.

Ezekiel´s Prophecy

Ezekiel Emanuel, Rahm´s elder brother, is a physician who helped design ObamaCare and has been one of its most intense champions. So you may be surprised to learn that in his new book, "Reinventing American Health Care," he predicts that tens of millions more Americans will lose their medical plans in the coming decade. In its "You´re the Boss" small-business blog, the New York Times quotes his prediction that by 2025, "fewer than 20 percent of workers in the private sector will receive traditional employer-sponsored health insurance."

Vice President Joe Biden has some problems speaking with a TelePrompter today at the National Association of Community Health Centers 2014 Policy and Issues Forum:"Stop moving that, that, that, that, uh, you know, what´s this thing called? You know, a TelePrompter," said Biden. "Barack always kids when he says, ´Joe Biden,´ he said, ´I´m learning to speak without a TelePrompter, Joe´s learning to speak with one.´"

Gets Questions from Reporters
Before Press Briefing

A CBS reporter from Arizona reveals that President Obama´s press secretary, Jay Carney, receives questions from the press in advance of his daily press briefing. In fact, she says, the reporters often receive the answers in advance of the briefing, too. According to the reporter, Jay Carney told her this yesterday at the White House:(snip)"And then he also mentioned that a lot of times, unless it´s something breaking, the questions that the reporters actually ask -- the correspondents -- they are provided to him in advance. So then he knows what he´s going to be answering and sometimes those correspondents

White House spokesman Jay Carney plugged his wife´s book today at the White House press briefing: In response to a question about whether raising the minimum wage is good politics -- because it helps Democrats with women voters -- Carney said, "It´s certainly the right thing to do regardless. What the assessments that have been done related to the minimum wage is that women would be affected more than men, because women tend to have minimum wage jobs, as I understand it -- not an economist -- in greater numbers than men do." He continued, bringing his wife´s book into the discussion:

The Conservative Political Action Conference has come and gone for 2014, and Sen. Rand Paul won the straw ballot which is held every time the party gets started. Paul, R-Ky., racked up 31 percent support among the partiers, and the CPAC gang is indeed prone to party. Sen. Ted Cruz , R-Texas, came in second with 11 percent of the CPAC thumbs-ups, and he will now head west (snip)Everyone is busy, busy, busy, laying groundwork. Except Jeb Bush, Florida´s former governor and first brother. Where in the world is Jeb? Figuring out, I think, what to do about Common Core.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it
