Letitia James claimed the National Rifle Association (NRA) was a “terrorist organization” during an interview with Ebony magazine, one week before she was elected to the office of New York attorney general.
James won the November 6, 2018, election for New York attorney general. A week before that, on October 31, 2018, Ebonyasked James, “What is the most important issue you have heard from prospective voters?”
She gave a broad-based response, which included tying “gun violence” to the repeal of the individual mandate in Obamacare.
The Republican Attorneys General Association slammed far-left New York Attorney General Letitia James in a statement on Thursday after James announced that she was going to try to destroy the NRA, saying that she was abusing her power by using “the levers of government to go after political opponents.”
Republican Attorneys General Association Chairman Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry released a statement in response to James’s “manipulation of our legal system for political gain.”
“Lawless liberals have hit a new low in their pursuit of defunding the police, discarding the Second Amendment, and deterring our ability to protect ourselves,” Landry wrote. “The New York Attorney General is shamefully abusing her power to target a political adversary, the same way a Saint Louis prosecutor did last month when she took guns away from citizens trying to protect themselves. This action is no different than what Democrats did during the shameful impeachment of President Trump: an attempt to use the levers of government to go after political opponents.”
A bar in Western New York says the state suspended their liquor license over a satirical menu which spells out “FUCK CUOMO” – meant to mock the governor over his executive order requiring customers to purchase food with alcohol, according to Spectrum News.
“He doesn’t have a right to selectively enforce laws or directives against certain people just because he has a personal beef with them,” said Chris Gardella, whose brother owns The Village Line in Kenmore.
According to state officials, a State Liquor Authority Investigator entered the bar and asked for a menu. He says he was told that he could order pizza next door and bring it back to the bar. The investigator also says he witnessed three patrons with alcohol and no food – which Gardella said they had probably already finished.
The Village Linedisagrees.
“We didn’t serve anyone alcohol without having food present,” said Gardella. “As far as we can tell, it was someone who came into order wings, which we didn’t have. We recommended they go somewhere else and that was that.“
A Brooklyn gang member released without bail on an attempted murder charge in May took part in three more shootings after he was sprung when a witness recanted, according to Brooklyn federal prosecutors.
Darrius Sutton, 23, was hauled into court months ago for a May 16 shooting, during which he allegedly shot another man in the courtyard of an East New York building, seriously injuring the victim, according to the feds. Despite charges of attempted murder, criminal possession of a weapon and assault with intent to cause injury, Sutton was released in the state case without bail set, according to court documents.
“At the time of arraignment the sole eyewitness had recanted so we did not have sufficient evidence to keep the defendant in custody. The investigation is continuing and we hope other witnesses come forward,” said a spokesman for the Brooklyn District Attorney.
But federal prosecutors say that Sutton — who they claim is a member of the Gorilla Stone subset of the Bloods — is responsible for several other shootings in Brooklyn over the past year that have injured seven, including a macabre April attack in which he allegedly snuck up behind a rival gang member and shot the unsuspecting man three times in the back, nearly killing him.
“As the video of the shooting and the photographs … make clear, it was entirely fortuitous that the defendant was unsuccessful in his attempt to murder the victim,” prosecutors wrote in a filing last Wednesday, the same day Sutton was arrested by federal agents.
I’m disgusted. I’m embarrassed. My heart is broken for the America that we’ve lost.
This morning, I woke up at 3am. I proudly announced on Fox and Friends First that Law Enforcement Today was proudly joining a number of other groups in taking part in the largest Back the Blue event in America.
Acclaimed keynote speaker Paul Butler and I were going to be the joint Masters of Ceremonies. We had rock and roll legend Ted Nugent flying in for the National Anthem – accompanied by Congressman Clay Higgins, the keynote speaker.
The first wave in the attack came from Facebook. After 6300 people RSVP’d to the event, the page was taken down by the social media giant.
It didn’t come as a surprise. I’m the same guy that just got a lifetime ban from LinkedIn last month for sharing an article about a guy who tried to kill two cops. We are sort of use to it.
But what happened today? Today it became evident just how legitimate the war on law enforcement is.
Congressman Clay Higgins and Ted Nugent are not allowed to attend the event… and that apparently comes directly from Governor Cuomo’s office.
After a woman was arrested for painting over the state-sanctioned Black Lives Matter street mural outside Trump Tower in New York City, she and her friends continued to paint over two more BLM murals after being released by the NYPD on Saturday night.
Just hours after being released, Bevelyn Beatty resumed her crusade to black out the yellow Black Lives Matter lettering also found in Harlem and Brooklyn, dumping black paint from a hatchback while vehicles behind inadvertently assisted by driving through and smearing the paint.
“Bevelyn and Edmee are officially released from the NYPD. They are doing wonderful and thank each and every one of you for your overwhelmingly incredible support and prayers!” Beatty said in a Facebook statement a couple hours after her release.
The Gateway Pundit’s Joe Hoft was on the Alex Jones Show at InfoWars on Tuesday. The topic of the discussion was almost exclusively related to the China coronavirus and actions in the US and worldwide.
The title of the interview on InfoWars was: “Meet The Man who First Exposed the Covid-19 Hoax.”
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) unveiled a strange art poster he personally designed depicting the state’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cuomo proudly unveiled his artwork during a press conference Monday, which showed a mountain representing the coronavirus fatality bell-curve with strange symbols conveying certain points of the pandemic, such as the shutdowns, mass testing, social distancing and mask wearing.
“I did a new one for what we went through with COVID,” Cuomo told reporters. “I think the general shape is familiar to you. We went up the mountain, we curved the mountain, we came down the other side.”
A social experiment by Ami Horowitz shows New Yorkers gleefully signing a petition to take down statues of “slave owners” like George Washington, but suddenly becoming reticent when Horowitz mentions the Prophet Muhammad.
“I want to take down all statues of people who owned slaves in this country,” Horowitz told potential signatories, emphasizing how he wanted to remove the statue of George Washington in DC.
All of the people featured in the video gleefully signed the petition to take down statues of “slave owners” like Washington and Jefferson.
However, when it came to another infamous historical slave owner, their enthusiasm suddenly waned.
A lawsuit filed in a New York federal court last week illuminates an alarming new trend: foreign governments are increasingly able to hire US-based cybersecurity firms with elite training from the CIA, NSA and other intelligence agencies to target Americans and others who are hostile to their interests.
The lawsuit claims that the Muslim Brotherhood-promoting Gulf emirate of Qatar sought out American intelligence operatives—many of whom were trained by the American military and Intelligence Community—to surveil, hack and intimidate influential Qatari critics in tandem with coordinated public relations campaigns.
The suit was filed by Elliott Broidy, a venture capitalist and former Republican National Committee finance chairman, who has been described as “an influential Qatari critic” of Qatar’s support for anti-American and anti-Israel Islamists like Hamas, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood.
American firms with lucrative Qatari retainers allegedly hacked and disseminated Broidy’s personal communications to the public in early 2018, part of what he alleges was a systematic smear campaign funded by the Qatari government and carried out by a litany of American private security and public relations firms.
