Albany, N.Y. (AP) — New York’s governor may have won a comfortable margin in the Democratic primary, but his challenger’s stronger-than-expected performance shows he faces difficulties with environmentalists, state workers and voters critical of his handling of corruption.
Cuomo defeated Fordham University law professor Zephyr Teachout 62 percent to 34 percent in Tuesday’s matchup. Few observers had predicted she would crack 30 percent.
Teachout voters interviewed by The Associated Press cited Cuomo’s stance on hydraulic fracturing for natural gas, his dismissive response to Teachout and his move to disband the anti-corruption Moreland Commission as the reasons they cast their votes for the underdog.
Cuomo supporters say Teachout’s surprising primary showing doesn’t reflect the wide support Cuomo’s centrist policies enjoy among most voters.
The governor faces Republican Rob Astorino and Green Party candidate Howie…

New York radio host Todd Pettengill is pointing to the alleged revenge killing of a 19-year-old man from Livingston, New Jersey, as evidence that “domestic terrorism is already here.” Further, he argues, the “act of jihad” is not getting nearly enough media coverage.
On his radio show this week, Pettengill called for increased focus on the murder of Brendan Tevlin, who…

A horrific machete attack by an illegal alien gang on two innocent young men waiting on a platform for a Chicago El train has been caught on surveillance camera, and is making big news in Chicago. Chicago is, of course, a sanctuary city for illegal aliens under the policies of Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
Here is the ABC/channel 7 news report on the incident, which pauses the video to spare viewers the full horror:
WGN television also avoids broadcasting the worst of the attack and provides this account:
Around 12:30 a.m. Monday, a 26-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy were waiting for the Brown Line train at the Kedzie stop.
A group of seven, 6 males and one female, surrounded them on the platform and someone in the group told them to flash their gang signs and they refused, telling the group they weren’t in a gang.

‘President Obama just announced war (of sorts) in the Middle East — but he’s not going to wait for Congressional authorization to go to war. But that’s not the only area where the president is threatening to make Congress an afterthought.
Last week, the bill’s author, Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Patrick Leahy released a letter from James Clapper and Eric Holder. A number of news outlets incorrectly reported the letter as an unambiguous endorsement of Leahy’s bill.
As YDM587 taught us, Muslims hate dogs. Islam views our furry friends as nejis, or ritually unclean, and commands its followers to avoid them. This Islamic belief is likely what led to an incident in Paterson, NJ, in which a disabled veteran was expelled from a Subway restaurant because he had a canine service animal.
Disabled Army Veteran Richard Hunter took his dog to a local Subway. Restaurant manager Mitul (more like Mi-tool) Ahmed was behind the counter. Despite the sign on the front door indicating service animals were welcome and the obvious identification as such on Hunter’s dog, Ahmed demanded he and his dog vacate the premises. “The dog is not allowed in here,” Ahmed said. “Get the dog out of here.” No question about whether or not it was a service animal. No polite, “excuse me, sir, but company policy doesn’t permit pets in this establishment.”…
