Empire Center: Gov. Cuomo’s Green Energy CES Boondoggle Already Beginning to Collapse

Tim Lee, ‘New Yorkers shouldn’t relent until the entire Clean Energy Standard is consigned permanently to the policy ash heap.’  For months now we’ve been exposing an inexcusable, costly, climate alarmist, crony capitalist, green energy boondoggle imposed upon New York state citizens by Governor Andrew Cuomo and the state’s Public Service Commission (PSC) composed entirely of his

After Her Election Defeat Liberal Hillary Clinton Decries Fake News #PizzaGate

Todd Starnes,  Islamic radicals are once again waging jihad on American soil and President Obama is AWOL. There have been attacks in New York, New Jersey, Minnesota and a charity run for Marines. Among the victims — an eight year old child and a 15-year-old girl. And the only reason we’re not talking about massive casualties

De Blasio Defends Sanctuary Cities…

Cortney O’Brien, After Illegal Immigrant Victims’ Families Join Trump Onstage. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio did not like what he heard during Donald Trump’s immigration speech Monday night. The liberal leader rejected the GOP nominee’s characterization of illegal immigrants. “These are our fellow New Yorkers, we’re going to respect them, protect them, they’re part
