WATCH: In New York, Trudeau Blames Harper Government For Current Illegal Border Crossing Crisis

During a recent event in New York City, Justin Trudeau was asked about criticism he is getting from the Opposition (and millions of Canadians) over the escalating illegal border crossing crisis.

For just a moment, it seemed he would refuse to blame the Conservatives, as he started saying that he doesn’t engage in partisan politics outside the country.

But that only lasted a few seconds.

He then proceeded to blame the crisis on – you guessed it – the previous Conservative government, saying they didn’t “invest” enough.

Democrats In Action: NYC Wants To Ban Smoking While Walking

Whenever you see the words “NYC wants to ban” you know for a fact that the words to follow are going to be insanely stupid. In this case they are “smoking while walking.” A NYC councilman wants to make illegal for people to walk and smoke at the same time. Once this important issue is handled, I’m sure they’ll go after smiling while wearing a hat and putting on pants two legs at a time.

Downward

An old woman scowls at passersby as she squats in a nest of plastic bags and bundles arranged on four seats on the Herald Square Q, N, and R subway platform. At one end of the platform, a man cups a cigarette in his palm, indifferent to the confused frowns of those around him. Across the tracks, on the northbound side, a man with matted hair declaims against an invisible adversary, while an almost visible stink clears a path as he paces up and down. The station reeks like soiled laundry and sweat because at least a half-dozen people are camped out here, wearing sweaty, soiled clothes steamed by the heat and moisture of thousands of subway riders maneuvering through the station at every hour.

Confirmed: New York City’s Public WiFi Stations Are Spying On You

If there is ever a perfect example of dual-use technology, it is WiFi connectivity. I’ve already covered the mounting evidence that our ubiquitous gadgets and wireless connections are doing irreparable physical harm, especially to the young and to pregnant women, but the concern about surveillance is running a parallel track.

Well it prevented that attack this morning didn’t it? No? Trump’s fault!

NYC Bombing: Akayed Ullah named as latest Muslim who tried to kill us

Update: An ISIS-inspired would-be suicide bomber set off a homemade explosive device at the Port Authority Bus Terminal subway station Monday morning, seriously wounding himself and injuring three others, law enforcement sources said.

The man — a 27-year-old Brooklyn man identified by high ranking police sources as Akayed Ullah — had wires attached to him and a 5-inch metal pipe bomb and battery pack strapped to his midsection as he walked through the Manhattan transit hub.

He’s Muslim? What a surprise!

The NYPD is responding to reports of an explosion of unknown origin at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in Manhattan.

UPDATE from Fox News: The suspected bomber was a 27-year-old man from Brooklyn, law enforcement sources told Fox News. Former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton told MSNBC his sources in the department said the explosion was an “ISIS-inspired attack.” Bratton said the suspect was a man from Bangladesh who had been living in the U.S. for about seven years.

UPDATE from Fox News: Akayed Ullah, 27, set off the “effectively low tech device” in a subway passageway just before 7:30 a.m., New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a news conference. Ullah suffered burns and wounds to his body and appeared to be the only person seriously injured in the pipe bomb explosion, authorities said. At least three other people suffered injuries that were not life threatening.

There are two type of Muslims: Recently Rapidly Radicalized and Sleeper Cells.

NYC Mayor De Blasio: Don’t stop with abolishing statues, go big!

On August 16, following the events over the previous weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) announced his intention to create a commission to review, within 90 days, all “symbols of hate on city property.” He said at the time that he had one in mind: a sidewalk marker in downtown Manhattan for Nazi collaborator Henri Phillipe Pétain. He named the members of his Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments and Markers on September 8. In October, the Commission opened a website so New Yorkers could participate in a survey. The Commission scheduled five public hearings between November 17 and 28.
