Tension Between De Blasio and Bratton

    One of the few good decisions made by Bill De Blasio since he has become mayor has been to hire Bill Bratton as Police Commissioner. An unfortunate counterpoint to this has been to have Al Sharpton as a member of the mayor’s inner circle. The presence of Sharpton seems to be a signal […]

NYPD Twitter Campaign Backfires Big Time

When the New York City police asked for twitter photos of citizens interacting with the police, it backfired big time. Russia Today reports that citizens sent in photos of police brutality, cops behaving badly, and stressed out cops venting at citizens.

An Open Letter To Kenneth Thompson About the Office of “Jewish Liaison”

It was with concern that I read news on Frum Follies about your plans to appoint a “Jewish liaison” for your office.  While there may be difficulties faced in dealing with members of the public who speak Hebrew or Yiddish, or potential for misunderstandings related to Jewish law or customs, it would seem that the […]

What do Richard Wagner, Mikis Theodorakis and Harry Belafonte have in common? All of them are musical luminaries, and all of them are political loony tunes. What the hell was Harry Belafonte doing at De Blasio’s inauguration? If music is not coming out of Belafonte’s mouth, he is usually spewing political sewage.

That feeling has been noticeably absent under four years of Mayor Bloomberg. The issue […]
