One reason Democrats seem so fixated on importing illegal immigrants and allowing their children to stay and become citizens may be the exodus from high-tax and traditionally Democratic states. Anecdotal evidence is usually not helpful in determining trends, but when stories begin to accumulate and sound the same attention must be paid. Two friends of mine, who are longtime California residents, recently decided to move from that highly taxed state to states with lower taxes.
The terrorist truck attack in Manhattan by an Uzbekistan national, inspired by ISIS propaganda, was the ostensible subject of Max Fisher and Amanda Taub’s “The Interpreter” column in Thursday’s New York Times. But it was more of an exercise in trying to weaken the link between “terrorism” and radical Islam. The authors gain revealed their liberal priorities by fretting over even labeling such attacks by radical Islamists as terrorism: “This Time Was Terror. What About Las Vegas?” And a front-page story downplayed, in typical Times fashion, the Islamic connection, asserting "there is no single reason" someone would commit such an act, blaming "monsters inside" him.
Just hours after news broke that a radical inspired by ISIS drove into a bikepath, killing eight people and injuring over a dozen others, MSNBC was already out deflecting blame from the radical religious ideology behind the attack. The network’s terrorism analyst, Malcolm Nance, defended Islam, saying it wasn’t responsible for Tuesday’s terror attack. He even brought Christianity into the mix, saying that sometimes Christians were responsible for terror.
The morning after a deadly terror attack in lower Manhattan, journalists in the left-wing media couldn’t get their heads around a deadly attack that didn’t involve guns. Eight people were killed and several others injured in New York City Tuesday afternoon, after an Islamic radical motivated by ISIS mowed down pedestrians in a bike path. Liberal journalists took to Twitter, and some even used their news programs, to complain about gun control and call out President Trump for calling the act terrorism right away, which he didn’t do after Las Vegas.
On Friday, a lawyer for the New York Times, arguing before a Manhattan federal judge, claimed that the paper made "an honest mistake in posting the editorial" claiming that Sarah Palin directly incited the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords in 2011.
Por fin Univision cedió a la presión, uniéndose a Goya, JetBlue, AT&T, la cerveza Corona, los Yankees de Nueva York, Coca-Cola, el New York Daily News al retirar su auspicio corporativo del Desfile Puertorriqueño de Nueva York. Pero, Univision al fin, no pueden darle la cara a sus televidentes para decirles la verdad sobre su retiro del desfile.
Se sigue desmoronando la edición de este año del Desfile Puertorriqueño de Nueva York. Los auspiciadores corporativos siguen huyéndole al desfile, tras su decisión catastrófica de honrar al terrorista convicto de las FALN, Oscar Rivera López, con el título de "Prócer Nacional de la Libertad" antes de marcharlo por la Quinta Avenida. Mientras líderes como Melissa Mark-Viverito, la Presidenta del Consejo Municipal de Nueva York, buscan aguarecerse de la respulsa a Oscar, es importante que tomemos un par de minutos para separar los hechos de la propaganda, para mejor entender lo que está ocurriendo.
Univision finally caved under pressure, joining Goya Foods, JetBlue, AT&T, Corona beer, the New York Yankees, and Coca-Cola in withdrawing their corporate sponsorship from the embattled National Puerto Rican Day Parade. But Univision being Univision, they can't even bring themselves to tell their viewers the truth about its parade pullout.
The wheels continue to come off of this year’s edition of New York City’s Puerto Rican Day Parade. Major sponsors continue to flee the Parade after its catastrophic decision to bestow upon convicted FALN terrorist Oscar López Rivera its first-ever “National Freedom Hero” designation right before marching him down Fifth Avenue. As leaders such as City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito seek cover from the Oscar blowback, it is important that we take a few minutes to separate fact from fiction, in order to better understand why this is happening.
Goya Foods, the nation's oldest and best-known Hispanic food company, has withdrawn its support from the National Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City, given the Parade's recent decision to become a vehicle with which to honor unrepentant FALN terrorist Oscar López Rivera. But what of the other sponsors?
Teasing an upcoming report on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer hyped fears that security measures in New York City for Donald Trump were driving local shops and restaurants out of business: “Up next, is increased security for the President-elect around Trump Tower bankrupting nearby businesses?”
