Writer Jimmy Breslin gets
final victory in feud
with mayor Ed Koch

New York Daily News, by Denis Hamill

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 2/3/2013 6:08:21 AM

The death watch is over. Jimmy Breslin has outlived Ed Koch. About five years ago, I was eating in a diner on Ninth Ave. near the Port Authority in Manhattan and Ed Koch had just finished eating at another table with some friends. As he was leaving he nodded to me and I said, “How’m I doing, Ed?” (Snip) The Breslin-Koch feud dates back to 1986 when Koch appeared on a talk show and said he intended to run for three more terms as mayor and then “give the eulogy at Jimmy Breslin’s funeral.”

In this piece Hamill tries to give his friend Breslin last licks....

Sanctimonious ultra liberal Breslin couldn´t shine Mayor Koch´s shoes.

Ed still wins to my way of thinking. Look at all the bi-partisan love showered on Hizz´oner´s passing, while Breslin will receive much hate and scoffing when he goes. Koch, for the win.

Environmentalists to the Peasants: Drop Dead

California is going through a terrible drought and 2013 was the driest on record in the state. So who is suffering, financially and otherwise, from its effects? Hint: it is not the coastal elite. The water still flows to the upscale neighborhoods of La Jolla, Malibu, and Marin County. Their lawns are watered, their BMW’s washed and polished, their swimming pools full. No, it’s the farmers in the Central Valley and the agricultural workers who are idled as 500,000 acres of the best farmland on the planet lies fallow. Where is their water going? To save the environment. It’s better, according to

Obama´s ‘one world’ fantasy for ’Net

Internet users beware. We are about to surrender our freedom of speech — and, quite possibly, put our national and economic security at risk. Last month, in a move that most people outside the Beltway barely noticed, President Obama announced plans to relinquish U.S. control over the administration of the Internet to a community of “global multi-stakeholders.” Translation? Obama is putting the infrastructure of the Internet up for grabs. And, inevitably, those who do not share America’s core values and respect for freedom will be the first ones to reach for it. Since 1998, the U.S. Department of Commerce has maintained authority over the

   

 

  


 
Iran loses Manhattan
skyscraper to terror vics

The Iranian companies that own a Midtown office tower worth more than $500 million must forfeit the building to people who successfully sued Iran for damages over terrorist attacks, including 9/11, a judge has ruled. In a written opinion Friday, Manhattan Federal Judge Katherine Forrest said the companies must hand over the building because they acted as fronts for the Iranian government and therefore “are” the government of Iran under certain federal laws. In a separate but related decision in September, Forrest said the feds have the right to seize the building, 650 Fifth Ave., partly due to money laundering

Open Wide: Ranking the Most Extreme

It´s Opening Day in baseball stadiums across America. (Well, sort of.) That not only means the official return of our country´s national pastime, but also the return of our country´s second national pastime: gorging on extreme foods. And this year features some true gastronomic wonders. Or horrors, depending on your perspective. Each year in order drum up new customers for those long rain delays, stadiums try to outdo one another when it comes to concessions, which leads to some serious eating innovations. Unfortunately, many them involve the limits of human endurance (and stomachs.) Last year´s champion was Rangers Stadium (also known

In 2000 I was standing in for my boss at the time, then-representative John Shadegg (R., Ariz.), as I spoke to an AP Government class in Phoenix. It was the first time I had visited a high-school class on his behalf, but I had my spiel ready. I knew exactly how to kick it off: Raise your hand if you think ours is the greatest country in the world. From there, I had planned to launch into a speech explaining that our democratic values, federalism, and respect for individual freedom made us great. Slight hiccup: Only half the class raised their

Like everyone wearing a suit in Bristol and the majority of people in your NCAA tournament pool, President Barack Obama picked No. 4 seed Michigan State to win the national championship. That prediction up in smoke on Sunday, with Connecticut’s 60-54 upset (but not really an upset) win over the Spartans. The official UConn sports Twitter account was all too happy to remind the president about his pick.(Snip for Tweet)POTUS has opted for the safety of a “wisdom of crowds” approach to his NCAA tournament picks in the past, foregoing the trailblazing tactics that are sink or swim for poolers.

Obamacare sign-up closes at midnight and enrollment is surging, but a technical flare-up on HealthCare.gov Monday morning marred the administration’s momentum. The online portal, which had been handling millions of visitors over the past few days as enrollment pushed past 6 million, was “down for maintenance” starting at around 3:20 a.m. Officials said it returned to functionality at 9 a.m. Health and Human Services officials said the problem was a software bug discovered overnight that was being repaired. The site goes through routine maintenance at night, but this incident spilled into high-profile hours on the final day for most people

"I Can See Climate Change From My House"

The “impacts” report of the IPCC is out today, and we’ll try to get through some of the highlights of the thousand-page plus report. (Always reminds me of Churchill’s note about an overlong memo: “This report, by its very length, defends itself against the risk of being read.” We’ll take the risk.) Turns out that an acquaintance of mine helped write the FAQ portion of the report. But we don’t need to read the report, because Barbara Boxer is on the job: “In California, we can just look out the window to see climate change’s impacts – from the driest year on

The Tampa, FL driver behind “Redneck Roadrage/Instant Karma,” a viral YouTube video in which an aggressive driver gets his sweet, sweet comeuppance, spoke to WTSP about the incident, and said the video had led to an arrest of the driver. Authorities were able to identify the driver from the video. He has been charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene, and, best of all, not wearing a seatbelt. “Honestly, looking back, I feel kind of bad for laughing,” said the driver, who declined to give her name. “But at the same time, it’s kind of funny.” “None of us are good drivers.

A 43-year-old man was swept out to sea Sunday during a baptism ceremony at a coastal park in northern Santa Barbara County. Two other people were also dragged into the ocean but returned to shore during the early morning service at Rancho Guadalupe Dunes Preserve. But an extensive search by emergency teams failed to find the missing man by nightfall, the Santa Maria Times reported. Jesus Christ Light of the Sky, the Santa Maria church that put on the ceremony, performs similar baptisms two or three times a year, Pastor Mauro Cervantes told the paper. Most of the 25 people

Report: Obama administration released

The Obama administration is threatening public safety by deliberately hampering immigration law and releasing aliens with criminal records, according to a new review of internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement data. A Center for Immigration study to be released Monday and obtained in advance by The Daily Caller, found that last year ICE reported nearly 722,000 encounters with illegal or criminal immigrants. But ICE officers filed immigration charges against less than 195,000 aliens. “According to ICE personnel, the vast gap between the number of encounters reported and the number of aliens put on the path to removal exists because officers are not permitted

Jennifer Rubin awards the Distinguished Pol of the Week trophy to… Mitch McConnell. No one has been more vilified by the D.C.-based far-right machine than Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). If you didn’t know better, you’d think outfits like Heritage Action, FreedomWorks, Madison Project, Senate Conservatives Fund and these groups’ top cheerleader in the blogosphere, Red State, were working for the “Keep Harry Reid Majority Leader” fund. McConnell has been attacked for opposition to the shutdown, for agreement on a budget deal and for supporting items like the farm bill. Yet he now is running away with his primary race

In a meeting with the heads of the five service branches in 2010, President Obama offered the leaders a choice: Support my efforts to end the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, or resign. In a video obtained by BuzzFeed via a Freedom of Information Act request, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp revealed that Obama was unwilling to compromise with service leaders over DADT during a meeting in 2010. “We were called into the Oval Office and President Obama looked all five service chiefs in the eye and said, ‘This is what I want to do.’ I cannot divulge everything

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow.

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
