A New York City Council candidate who lives in lower income housing has been elected as the Democratic nominee for her district after controversy surrounded now-deleted online photos showing her husband sailing on his wealthy father´s yacht. Carlina Rivera will now be the nominee for the District 2 City Council seat to represent neighborhoods including parts of the East Village, Gramercy and the Lower East Side. (Snip) During her election, Rivera, who is a New York native, faced questions about her eligibility to live in Section 8 housing due to her salary as a council staffer and her husband´s numerous

Not only is she getting away with something, but she is depriving a genuinely in-need person or family of that low-income apartment.

Throw her out.

I am convinced voters like being lied to by Democrats, even to their detriment. After all, NYC elected the commie mayor.

John Mara ‘very unhappy’ with

Giants co-owner John Mara feels the way many of the fans of his football team do: He’s not pleased with the end-zone antics of Odell Beckham Jr. “I do not want to get into a discussion about this,” Mara told The Post in an email Tuesday morning, “but I will say that I am very unhappy with Odell’s behavior on Sunday and we intend to deal with it internally.” Beckham scored two touchdowns in the Giants’ 27-24 loss to the Eagles on Sunday. After the first he crawled on all fours and hiked his back leg, mimicking a dog urinating

Almost half of the individuals suspected of a recorded crime in Berlin last year were individuals who don’t have a German passport, the latest police statistics show. The proportion of crimes carried out by immigrants rose to 45 per cent last year, a five per cent increase from 2015, when they comprised 40 per cent of crimes committed in the German capital. (Snip) According to police statistics released earlier this year, foreigners commit crime at three and a half times the rate of Germans, with the crime rate of asylum seekers around seven times that of Germans.

Enrollment at the University of Missouri continues to crater in the wake of the November 2015 race protests, with this year’s incoming class down 33 percent from the one two years ago. Official figures released by the school Wednesday put the freshman class at 4,134 ? up from the university’s initial estimate of 4,009. But enrollment is still down 546 from the fall of 2016 and 2,060 from the fall of 2015. Total enrollment is down nearly 13 percent since 2015.

A stadium worker with nearly three decades of NFL games under his belt quit his job Sunday, saying he was “pushed” to the limit after several Buffalo Bills took a knee during the national anthem. Erich Nikischer said he’s putting the few good years and “a lot of the bad ones” at New Era Field behind him after several Bills took a knee before Sunday’s 26-16 win against the Broncos.

Hillary Clinton called out the Trump administration Sunday for its response to the devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. “President Trump, Sec. Mattis, and DOD should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens, Clinton said in a Sunday tweet, referring to the Department of Defense, Secretary James Mattis and a US Navy ship that serves as a medical facility. The White House has not returned CNN’s request for comment on Clinton’s remark. The Pentagon is on the ground in Puerto Rico, dispatching members of the Army Corps of Engineers’ 249th Engineer Battalion,

Arauca, Colombia — At a squat, concrete brothel on the muddy banks of the Arauca River, Gabriel Sánchez rattled off the previous jobs of the women who now sell their bodies at his establishment for $25 an hour. “We’ve got lots of teachers, some doctors, many professional women and one petroleum engineer,” he yelled over the din of vallenato music. “All of them showed up with their degrees in hand.” And all of them came from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s economy continues to collapse amid food shortages, hyperinflation and U.S. sanctions, waves of economic refugees have fled the country. Those with the

A Brooklyn principal accused of bringing grade-fixing to new heights has resigned, but was given another six-figure job, city officials said. Marc Williams, after less than two years as principal of the Secondary School for Journalism in Park Slope, quit amid an investigation of course-credit schemes exposed by The Post in July. A teacher said Williams turned a blind eye when a student got a passing grade in a course by taking online tests — with help from a classmate. Williams has been made a “case manager” in the Department of Education’s human resources department, officials said. His new $127,443 salary

   

 

  


 
Psychologist in massive Social Security
fraud case gets 25-year sentence
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 9/23/2017 2:19:50     Post Reply
The psychologist who helped pull off the biggest Social Security fraud in U.S. history was sentenced Friday to 25 years in prison. Alfred Bradley Adkins was part of the fraud ring orchestrated by Eric C. Conn, one of the country’s most prominent disability lawyers, and David B. Daugherty, a Social Security judge who rubber-stamped at least 1,700 bogus applications for benefits. All told, the scam would have cost the government at least $600 million in fraudulent lifetime benefits, according to the government’s conservative estimate. Some $93 million were already paid out before the scam was stopped, the government said.

He dropped the ball. The Rev. Al Sharpton said on Saturday that President Trump’s crude call for NFL owners to fire protesting players completely misses the point of why they’re taking a knee in the first place. “Why don’t you, as President, address what the protest is about? Why?” Sharpton asked as he addressed a cheering crowd during his weekly rally at his National Action Network headquarters in Harlem. “The reason you won’t is because they’re protesting the criminal justice inequities in this country,” a fired up Sharpton said to roaring applause. “He’s talking about ‘fire’ like he’s still doing

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.

"Someone had the lack of judgment to provoke the situation and call their mothers a name," Jackson Lee said of President Trump using "son of a bi*ch" last week to refer to NFL players who knelt during the National Anthem in protest of racial injustice.

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing.

A pair of new polls on Monday showed Roy Moore beating incumbent Luther Strange by double digits in Tuesdays’s GOP senate runoff in Alabama — despite President Trump’s endorsement of the man he calls “Big Luther.” The first survey, conducted by the Trafalgar Group during the two days after Trump’s raucous rally for Strange on Friday — showed the arch-conservative leading by 16 points, 56 to 40. The second, commissioned by Cygnal, an Alabama-based research firm, was also conducted after Trump’s visit to Huntsville, showed Moore leading 52 to 41.
