How is it that yesterday, the TU reported on these cases being settled and there's no mention by gazette as of yet pertaining to this outcome?

Its annoying when either side excuses bad behavior by pointing to other bad behavior. This conduct is so widespread, our elected leaders are rarely held accountable for their actions. I welcome to hear any defense on behalf of Hilary Clinton as she failed to explain her deception at the Bengazi hearings. The only answer offered by her supporters is to bring up misconduct or mistakes by her opponents.
There's no way to justify or rationalize the sleaze she exhibited in lying to the victims' families. The most popular response or the cop out by Democrats is that everyone does it. And I'm speaking as a registered Democrat, who voted for Obama in 2008. With a sympathetic media covering her, Hilary will avoid any scrutiny regarding Bengazi during the primary. The general election will be a different road to hoe.

The New York AG is going after these two successful companies because as they are unregulated, the State can't stick their finger in this lucrative pie.

Despite the Republicans conducting the Bengazi hearings in a clumsy, redundant and cumbersome manner, the end result revealed with clear evidence, in Hillary Clinton's own E-mails, that she misled the public and the victim's families of the attacks on our Embassy. Instead of emphasizing this outrageous behavior motivated by political expediency in an election year, the media focused on and gushed over how Clinton testified for 11 hours without getting rattled, spinning the hearing as a net positive for her.

Clinton's testimony shows someone who's steeped in a deceptive mindset, showing a willingness to say anything for her political gain. What is certain is that her different versions as to what were the real causes behind the attacks on the Bengazi embassy will be a powerful focal point in the general elections. It will be more difficult for the media to continue to put out the narrative that Hilliary acted appropriately in the aftermath of Bengazi. For many independent voters and some moderate democrats, this blatant deception by Hillary is game over for her presidency.

Governor Cuomo has played both sides of this issue to maximize the political gain for him, hemming and hawing, back and forth. Now he's still dragging his feet even though three children have literally died while waiting for his approval to access medical marijuana. I thought this exception for the severely ill was granted, so it surprising to learn that these families are still in limbo waiting for the Governor to act.
But Cuomo puts his political calculations ahead of the lives of the people and their families who are in desperate need of medical marijuana. His indecision and stringing people along caused this delay which for some had deadly consequences. And he after all that, remains on the fence as to whether he'll sign the bill into law. Outrageous!

That the investigation included divers searching for the murder weapon in the lake after the arrests were executed suggests that the alleged driver may have flipped on his accomplice. Kudos to the Colonie Detectives that maintained a strong resolve throughout the investigation. May these arrests lead to some degree of closure for Jackie's family.

Yes Maria, it's unfortunate but predictable that the media offered little context as why the girl was removed, only focusing on repeatedly showing the 20 seconds of the officers reacting to her defiance. Neither did the media question what blame she shared in this incident. It's revealing and a little reassuring to see that protests were held by some of the other students in support of the fired school officer.

Dr. Ben Carson has repeated his outrageous claim that the Jewish people were somehow responsible for the Holocaust by their refusal to arm themselves against the Nazis. Aside from being ludicrous, it should be seen as an unforgivable insult to both "Israel and the Jewish people, especially to those members of Congress who have so staunchly defended Israel and its prime minister in recent months. So far, all of them have been silent on Carson’s comments."

The reason there has been silence on this issue by Jewish leaders is because Ben Carson never said what you just claim he did. He stated that the Nazis would have had a harder time succeeding with their execution of the Holocaust if the Jewish citizenry had been armed. This point has been debated by historians dating back to the end of World War II. Your characterization of Dr. Carson's commentary are what's ludicrous here and you need to be called out for your dishonest spin.

"One expected witness, FBI Special Agent Eric Perry, is expected to present information concerning the whereabouts of a TracFone used to send threatening text messages to the man who died in the fire, David Terry, and the location of Leon’s personal cellphone."

This information seems to me as the type of evidence revealing the guilt of someone who had a motive for setting the fire. Which makes it quite maddening that this trial is concerning perjury while no one is facing the charges for this heinous crime.

This is great news. But until the aquarium is completed, I remain a bit skeptical. Although, it appears that the new owner has lined up the right people to get this done. At least the Mall is no longer being mismanaged by Michael Kohan.
