Michael Isaacson, a screwball, overtly Communist professor at New York's John Jay College of Criminal Justice is way more than that. He's obviously Jewish and because of his outrageous statements and feelings about cops, Trump and our nation is a danger to all of us. Obviously a self-loathing Jew, he dangerously feeds the anti-Semitism of those with whom he associates. He is a traitor among us.

His tweet on August 23rd: "Some of ya'll might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John

As New Yorkers gear up for yet another primary and general election season their voting choices for mayor, city council, public advocate, borough president, district attorney and comptroller remain overwhelming on the Democratic side of the proverbial aisle. While this should come as no surprise to any died-in-the-wool New Yorker who understands that their city has gained a reputation for maintaining a solid blue presence since its governmental formation; it is also clear that not everyone
