ISIS threatens NYC with sniper attacks and package bombs
An ISIS-supporting media group threatened New York City attacks for New Year’s with suggested tactics including snipers and package bombs.
The latest threat circulated online follows other message from jihadists that have specifically cited Jan. 1 in calling for attacks.
One poster distributed online in mid-November superimposed a masked jihadist wielding a bloody knife over a collage of images from the 2016 Berlin Christmas market attack. It stated that New Year’s Day is “the date of retribution.”
Ocasio-Cortez Issues New ‘Living Wage’ Demand For Congress; Critics Point Out A Few Problems
Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez isn’t officially in office just yet, but that doesn’t mean she’s not already calling on her future colleagues to take action on her initiatives. Her newest agenda item: a “DC living wage” for everybody on Capitol Hill.
In a series of posts Monday, Ocasio-Cortez said that after meeting “several” people employed in Senate and House offices working side jobs in order to make a living, she believes it’s time for Congress to set the example for the nation by providing a “DC living wage” to all people working on Capitol Hill.

In the immortal words of Yogi Berra, “It’s déjà vu all over again.” This déjà vu comes in the form of the failed Liberal policies of Ontario resurfacing at the federal level.

Whatever the dynamic is between them, these two have common cause, and instead of taking a lesson from the disaster that green economics delivered for Ontario, they are doubling down and giving more of the same to the country.
Satanic Temple monument added to Capitol rotunda displays
A display from The Satanic Temple-Chicago has been placed in the Statehouse rotunda, joining the Nativity scene to mark the Christmas season and the Menorah to mark Hanukkah.
According to the Satanic group’s application to the secretary of state’s office to allow the display, the sculpture is called “Knowledge is the Greatest Gift,” and it depicts the forearm of a young woman extended, with her hand holding an apple.
The whole structure, including the base, is about 4 1/2 feet tall, and the arm and apple statue is about 18 inches long.
Dave Druker, spokesman for the secretary of state, said the Chicago-based Satanic group had the right, just like religious organizations, to put up its display in rotunda.
‘TRANSPARENCY’: Trudeau Government Hides Info On Report From Disaster India Trip
Justin Trudeau repeatedly promised to run the most “open and transparent” government in history.
