    Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t paid a six-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture. Weeks after The Post alerted the freshman Congresswoman’s office to the outstanding tax lien from 2012, she still hasn’t paid it, state records show. Brook Avenue Press, a company set up in the Bronx to publish books about city children, owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes. The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The...

    MSNBC host Rachel Maddow kept it together on Friday night, but just barely. Returning unexpectedly from a fishing trip in Tennessee to broadcast in the wake of news that the newly-released Mueller report will not include an indictment of President Donald Trump, Maddow spent the better part of her Friday night opening segment seemingly on the verge of tears.

    During the dying days of the Roman Republic, with effete senators stabbing each other in the back when they were not busy in orgies, Julius Caesar followed the exact trajectory of a Leviathan—what Thomas Hobbes described beautifully hundreds of years later. Caesar, by this time opposed to the Senate, which obstructed his imperial aims, decided to cross the river Rubicon, thereby declaring war on the last vestiges of the craven republic. After crossing the river, Caesar famously said Alea Eacta Est, or the die is cast. Thus crossing the Rubicon is now considered a revolutionary act that aims to destroy...

    FULL HEADER: Converse pulls a Gillette with SJW ad campaign .Features bizarre art, naturally demonizing white men ... to sell shoes Converse has released a new ad campaign that may actually be worse than Gillette’s. Titled, “The Woman Who Lived in a Shoe,” Converse explained that the campaign features “modern day nursery rhymes for women who own their stories.” The cringe-worthy ad tells the “real” stories of women of color who apparently quit their jobs, opted not to get married or have children, get trolled online and “choose the life” that they lead. It features bizarre art, naturally demonizing white...

     Soldiers heading towards Omaha Beach.When I was in grade school the teachers spoke of the Constitution with reverence.  As second graders, we listened as the teacher told the story of how it was written and the freedoms it guaranteed us and the responsibilities that it demanded of us.  My grade school teachers were all married women, and they loved America.  It was a small town, and the teachers had grown up in the area.  Some of them had taught their own children and their own grandchildren in the same school where the chalkboard dust, lead paint dust, water from...

    Chief Justice John Roberts arrived at the Valletta campus of the University of Malta on July 3, 2012, to teach a class on Supreme Court history. As he emerged from the back seat of a black sedan, he held his brown leather briefcase in front of him, almost as a shield. He wore a blue blazer, striped button-down shirt, and tan khakis. His clothes looked crisp, though his face was haggard. He was as exhausted and distressed as he had been in years. Roberts had left behind a storm in Washington over his opinion upholding President Barack Obama's health-care overhaul...

    New York state’s ban on personal ownership of stun guns is unconstitutional, a federal judge ruled Friday in the latest in a series of court decisions that have led to the loosening of restrictions on the weapons in several states. The decision came in a lawsuit filed by Matthew Avitabile, of Schoharie County, New York, who said he wanted to buy a stun gun for self-defense in his rural upstate home. His lawyers argued that New York’s longstanding ban on civilian ownership of stun guns violated the Second Amendment right to bear arms. U.S. District Judge David Hurd agreed. “New...

    At this point, it is not possible to say what is in the report. But even at this early moment, it is possible to note some things did not happen during the Mueller investigation. 1. Mueller did not indict Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, or other people whose purported legal jeopardy was the subject of intense media speculation in the last year. 2. Mueller did not charge anyone in the Trump campaign or circle with conspiring with Russia to fix the 2016 election, as was the subject of intense media speculation in the last year. 3. Mueller did not subpoena...

Barr also told the lawmakers that he will reveal the contents of the report as soon as this weekend. AG Bill Barr...

    UPMC Health Plan, Dollar Bank and Trib Total Media this week have all withdrawn their support for an April Founder’s Day fundraiser for St. Barnabas Charities after at least one local man asked them if the honoree and speaker at the event, Fox News commentator Jeanine Pirro, “reflect the values of your institution.” Ms. Pirro was strongly criticized after comments she made on her Fox News show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine” on March 9 when she said of U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., who wears a hijab, a traditional covering worn by Muslim women: “Is her adherence to this Islamic...

    The parent company of Fox News has hired a former top aide to Joe Biden as its chief lobbyist in Washington. On Tuesday the new Fox Corp., a spin-off of 21st Century Fox which just merged with Disney, became a standalone public company, controlling television assets such as Fox News and the Fox television network. Broadcasting & Cable reported that new Fox “hit the ground running on day one” with its Washington lobbying operation headed by Danny O’Brien, a well-known Democrat. O’Brien was brought on last October as executive vice president and head of government relations for the Fox Corp....

    Crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than with rifles of every kind in 2017. According to the Uniform Crime Report, 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles. The FBI report also reveals that 692 people were killed with “personal weapons” like “hands, fists, feet, etc..” and that is higher than the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns combined.

    Presidential hopeful Kamala Harris recently supported legalizing prostitution in an interview she gave to the Root: “But when you are talking about consenting adults, I think that you know, yes, we should really consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior as long as no one is being harmed,” she said, meaning that she would still support laws that would punish human trafficking and exploitation of women. Surprisingly—or not—this idea has also been embraced by certain segments on the right, especially among libertarians. Elizabeth Nolan Brown, an associate editor at Reason Magazine and an advocate of the sex trade, said Harris...

    "Darwinism came at the desired time; Darwin's theory that man is the descendant of a lower animal destroyed the entire foundation of Christian dogma." (Anton Pannekoek, "Marxism and Darwinism," translated by Nathan Weiser) As Pannekoek affirms, Darwin's mythological miracle-producing life and change-making evolutionary energy has destroyed the entire foundation of Christian theism. In supplanting Genesis 1-11, it has also destroyed biblical infallibility, transcendent moral law, sexual ethics, the gospel claims of Jesus Christ, and imago Dei, the source of man's personhood and innate dignity. In destroying the foundations of Christianity Darwinism has also destroyed the foundations of our Constitutional Republic,...
