  • NYCs “Metropolitan Republican Club” Bans Sheriff David Clarke (Controlled by Leftist Infiltrators)

    Metropolitan Club members, speaking exclusively with GotNews, say Clarke would have been a perfect speaker for the Club in the run-up to the 2016 election, had he not been, in the words of one leftist infiltrator, “not the right kind of speaker.”

    “You don’t have to be around the Met Club long to see how much of the club’s leadership is liberal,” says Stevo. “Since so many club members are conservatives, it could really be a phenomenal place if we started to provide a conservative oasis in the Democratic desert of New York. Conservatives in our city would love that kind of venue.”

  • NYPD cops accepted strippers, vacations for expedited gun permits: feds

    “Alleged corruption has pervaded the Licensing Division up to its senior level,” Kim said, “alleged corruption that spawned a cottage industry of bribers masquerading as so-called expediters.”

    Dean, who was second in command in the Licensing Division before his retirement, had also toyed with the idea of becoming an expediter himself.

    “I am done watching people make money off my back,” Dean told one gun broker, according to court papers. “I’m the one who’s signing off on everything. I’m the one who’s taking care of everything … you’re making money, you and dozens of other people.”

    The officers were accused of “failing to interview the applicants” and investigating whether they really had a business-based need for a gun as they pushed through license requests.

  • Three Former Police Officers And Former Assistant District Attorney Arrested In Connecton With Gun License Bribery Scheme

    In addition to this bribery scheme, JOHN CHAMBERS, a former Assistant District Attorney in Kings County, was arrested for a separate bribery conspiracy with Villanueva. CHAMBERS is an attorney who represents individuals before the License Division, and who markets himself to potential clients as the “Top Firearms Licensing Attorney in NY.” From at least 2010 through 2015, CHAMBERS gave Villanueva numerous valuable items, including tickets to sporting and entertainment events for Villanueva and his family, free dinners and lunches for Villanueva, sports memorabilia, and a wristwatch valued at approximately $8,000.

    In exchange, Villanueva assisted CHAMBERS’s clients in several ways. He ensured that renewal applications submitted by CHAMBERS’s clients, which typically take 30 to 40 days for approval, were renewed more expeditiously, sometimes as quickly as within one day. In addition, in evaluating “incidents” – investigations to determine whether an individual’s gun license should be suspended or revoked – Villanueva expedited the investigations, and then shortened the suspension periods, for CHAMBERS’s clients.

    Villanueva also helped CHAMBERS renew gun licenses for clients before the Pistol Section of the Nassau County Police Department, where Villanueva had contacts. Starting in or about 2012, CHAMBERS brought his clients’ renewal applications to Villanueva at One Police Plaza, and Villanueva mailed those applications to the Pistol Section using his NYPD License Division stationery. Villanueva did so knowing that because he was submitting the renewal applications using his NYPD License Division stationery, the renewals would be approved in a significantly faster time for CHAMBERS’s clients than for other applicants. In exchange, CHAMBERS paid Villanueva several times in cash, as well as with tickets to sporting and entertainment events for Villanueva and his family. CHAMBERS typically mailed Villanueva the cash by taping it to the inside of a magazine.

  • Shimtastic NYC Gun Attorney And Some Cops Snared by FBI in NYC Gun Licensing Scandal?! – MANY ARRESTS!

    Today New York City Gun Attorney John S. Chambers was arrested by the FBI for his connection to the NYC Pistol Licensing Scandal. Chambers, someone known within the small New York City Gun Community as a trans, used to be an Assistant District Attorney in New York City in the 1980s when “he” was still “Susan Chambers.”

    Rumor has it Susan Chambers’ career as ADA ended under a cloud of unethical behavior.

    I cannot say if these rumors are true!

    I can say that the fully TRANSUBSTANTIATED John S. Chambers has been arrested today. Any/All purported male hormones and genital surgery cannot save this individual now! Joking aside, here are the details…

    The New York Daily News reports:

    Law enforcement sources say those arrested Tuesday include retired NYPD Lieutenant Paul Dean, retired NYPD officers Robert Espinel and Gaetano Valastro, and John Chambers, an attorney and former Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney.

    In separate court papers filed in federal court in Manhattan, two others, including former NYPD Sgt. David Villanueva, who was assigned to the department’s licensing division, and a man named Frank Soohoo, are charged with bribery, also in connection with the issuance of gun licenses by the NYPD.

    According to court papers, Chambers, a Brooklyn ADA for two years in the 1980s who in his private legal work marketed himself as the “Top Firearms Licensing Attorney in NY,” allegedly gave Villanueva tickets to Broadway shows and sporting events, an $8,000 watch and cash hidden in magazines in exchange for expediting gun license applications for Chambers’ clients.

    Looks like this shim sham artist is going down faster than the Titanic! Although this small blurb was meant to be humorous, it does deal with very serious issues that directly impact the New York City gun community.


  • Major Power Outages In New York City, San Francisco Come Amid Worries About Failing Infrastructure

    Major power outages caused chaos on mass transit systems in both New York and San Francisco Friday, with parts of both cities’ systems still suffering ongoing outages or delays into the pre-weekend afternoon commute.

    The outages occurred on the heels of an Infrastructure Report Card that gave poor grades to both mass transit and power systems across the country.

    In New York, platforms were packed and riders were stuck underground in the dark when an outage in Midtown Manhattan backed up trains all over the city Friday morning. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said a Con Edison equipment failure knocked out signals, escalators, communications and lights at the station.

  • In Sanctuary City Crackdown, Justice Department Threatens to Withhold Grants From 8 Cities

     

    The letters were sent to officials in Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Las Vegas, Miami, Milwaukee, New York City and Sacramento, Calif., as well as Cook County, Ill. These municipalities were identified in a Justice Department inspector general’s report last year as potentially out of compliance with the requirements.

    Friday’s letter asks the cities to send documentation that they are in compliance by the end of June.

  • How did Cuomo make $783,000 on memoir that sold 3,200 copies?

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo reported his income last year more than doubled from the previous year, thanks to another round of royalty payments on a 2014 HarperCollins memoir that saw lackluster sales.

    In all, Cuomo has made $783,000 from HarperCollins for his book. The book sold 3,200 copies since it was published in the fall of 2014, according to tracking company NPD BookScan.

    That works out to royalty payments to Cuomo of $245 per book.

    “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life’’ had an original list price of $29.99. New copies of the hardcover book were being sold Monday on Amazon for $13.05.

  • The CuBlomo College Fiasco (Andy Wastes Taxpayer Money to Run for President!)

    The award for the worst public policy idea of the year goes to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

    Cuomo presides over a state with a rich diversity of educational institutions. But he also presides over a state, like all states, where many students don’t complete college and where many are unprepared for the information economy. For example, fewer than half of the African-American and Hispanic students in New York public colleges graduate within six years.

    Cuomo could have done many things to improve New York’s higher ed system. He could have poured all available money into the Tuition Assistance Program, which is directed at poorer students. He could have spent more to help students become academically ready for college, which is the biggest barrier to graduation. He could have done more to help students pay room and board expenses. He could have massively improved overstretched mental health services. He could have massively improved career counseling.

    But in 2016 Bernie Sanders made a big splash on the campaign trail with a plan to make college “free.” So Cuomo proposed and on Wednesday signed legislation to make tuition free at New York public colleges for anybody coming from a family making no more than $100,000 a year, with the cap rising to $125,000 in 2019. . .

  • Dysfunction City: How our clueless leaders valorize and promote social pathology

    The last time Official New York decided that criminals mattered more than civic tranquility, John Vliet Lindsay was mayor and decades of chaos lay ahead. Then came law-and-order types like Rudy Giuliani, George Pataki, and Mike Bloomberg; crackdowns ensued, and peace largely returned to the streets.

    Now the pendulum is swinging back to dysfunction. And public policy in New York increasingly seems driven by the same kind of “turn’em-loose” ethic that animated Lindsay’s administration decades ago.

    In Albany, Governor Andrew Cuomo was a motivating force behind the now largely successful effort to exempt 16- and 17-year-olds from felony statutes—the “Raise the Age” movement—with scant regard for the consequences of doing so. Plus, the governor is clamoring to close the Rikers Island jail complex—but without offering a realistic public-safety alternative. While Cuomo is far from alone in endorsing these positions, he brings the prestige of New York’s highest political office to the effort.

  • Rikers Island Fiction: A proposal to close New York’s island jail is just a pretense to impose a radical agenda

    New York City’s plan to shut down Rikers Island is a bait-and-switch scheme. The report of Judge Jonathan Lippmann’s blue-ribbon Independent Commission on New York City Criminal Justice and Incarceration Reform, tasked with figuring out what to do with the nation’s largest jail complex, concludes that the city should close Rikers and replace it with smaller, borough-based modern jails. Before that can happen, however, the report says, the city must first reduce its jail population from its present level of about 10,000 to around 5,000.

    Politically and logistically implausible, the Lippmann Report’s recommendations are a ruse. The real purpose of the proposal isn’t to close Rikers: it’s to let 5,000 people out of jail by pursuing a decriminalization agenda that would end Broken Windows policing as we know it and allow miscreants to commit quality-of-life offenses with impunity.

  • Leftard Judge: NYC can destroy papers linked to municipal ID program

    New York City can destroy personal documents associated with its municipal identification program, a judge ruled Friday in a victory for city officials who have sought to protect cardholders from possible deportation.

    Republican state Assembly members Ronald Castorina Jr. and Nicole Malliotakis filed a lawsuit in December seeking to prevent the destruction of documents, such as copies of foreign passports, used to verify a person’s identity to obtain the IDNYC card.

    Justice Philip G. Minardo of State Supreme Court on Staten Island ruled against the lawmakers but issued a stay Friday until April 17, pending an appeal.

  • People are fleeing New York at an alarming rate

    More people are leaving the New York region than any other major metropolitan area in the country.

    More than 1 million people moved out of the New York area to another part of the country since 2010, a rate of 4.4 percent — the highest negative net migration rate among the nation’s large population centers, US Census records show.

    The number of people leaving the region — which includes parts of New Jersey, Connecticut, the lower Hudson Valley and Long Island — in one year swelled from 187,034 in 2015 to 223,423 in 2016, while the number of international immigrants settling in the tri-state area dwindled from 181,551 to 160,324 over the same period, records show.

  • De Blasio: Being A Sanctuary City Means Less Terrorism! (BWAHAHAHAHA!)

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday that New Yorkers will be at risk of terror if Attorney General Jeff Sessions follows through on cutting federal law enforcement grants to sanctuary cities.

    Sessions appeared at the White House to say that jurisdictions that ignore immigration detainers will lose Department of Justice grants, which total $4.1 billion for the upcoming fiscal year.

  • NYC vows to fight for sanctuary status (NYC Government Just Loves Them Some Illegals!)

    Municipal leaders nationwide vowed to defy any crackdown on sanctuary cities after a warning from Attorney General Jeff Sessions that they could lose federal money for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities and suggested the government would come after grand money that has already been awarded if they don’t comply.

    “We are going to become this administration’s worst nightmare,” said New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who was among officials gathered in New York for a small conference that attracted officials from cities including San Francisco, Seattle, Denver, Chicago, Philadelphia and New York.

    Mark-Viverito and others promised to block federal immigration agents from accessing certain private areas on city property, to restrict their access to schools and school records and to offer legal services to immigrants in the country illegally.

  • Low Class Shrew Chuckie Schmuckie Schumer Loses It – Goes Off On Dinner Guests in NYC!

    From the Scumbag’s Facebook Page

     

    Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat.

    One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ”
