The Bronx Borough President does not seem to have a problem throwing his support around, regardless of who that individual is, or their party affiliation. First, The Donald bonded with Diaz with an unlikely Bromance that was evident of the pair’s flirtation in the form of Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park.

This may be the last opportunity locals will have to express their views on two ULURPs (Uniform Land Use Review Procedures) not relating to the height of the bridge, but to anchorage points in Pelham Bay Park and easements necessary for the planned construction of a temporary bridge and then a new City Island bridge.

FAKE NEWS

Problem

President Obama calls the threat of voter fraud 'fake news,' saying The USA is the only democracy that makes it harder and not easier to vote. Voter fraud and the claim of a rigged election have been disproved as fake news.

It was not true in 2011 when The Donald began to question President Obama’s birthplace aloud in television interviews. “I’m starting to think that he was not born here,” he said at the time.

Leaders say Trump has no sense of shame. The Donald 'a national disgrace' who engages in illegal acts.

Lawless USA?

Whoever decides to fight the law will learn that the law ultimately wins every time... The plot thickens.

Are President Trump's former 2016 campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates going to be the only ones indicted following a probe into Russian meddling in the US election?

US voters say that firing Mueller would constitute an abuse of power by Trump. But why would POTUS want to abuse his power?

SPEAK UP AND SILENCE CENSORSHIP

The definition of censorship is the control of information and ideas circulated within a society. In the 20th Century, censorship was achieved through the examination of books, plays, films, television and radio programs, news reports, and other forms of communication for the purpose of altering or suppressing ideas found to be objectionable or offensive. The rationales for censorship have varied, with some censors targeting material considered indecent or obscene; heretical or blasphemous; or seditious or treasonous. Thus, ideas have been suppressed under the guise of protecting basic social institutions: Family, Church, and State.

To understand censorship, and the impulse to censor, it is necessary to strip away the shock epithet value that is attached to the word at first utterance. One must recognize that censorship and the ideology supporting it go back to ancient times, and that every society has had customs, taboos, or laws by which speech, dress, religious observance, and sexual expression were regulated.

In Athens, where democracy first emerged, censorship was known as a means of enforcing the orthodoxy. Indeed, Plato was the first recorded thinker to formulate a rationale for intellectual, religious, and artistic censorship. In his ideal state outlined in The Republic, official censors would prohibit mothers and nurses from relating tales deemed bad or evil. Plato also proposed that unorthodox notions about God or the hereafter be treated as crimes and that formal procedures be established to suppress heresy. Freedom of speech in Ancient Rome was reserved for those in positions of authority...etc.
