Must See Video: Saratoga NY Police Officer Suspended Due To This Video

Hat/Tip to Epic Times and Editor’s Note: The staff and owners of Conservative Hideout 2.0 have nothing but the utmost respect for Law Enforcement Officers, First Responders, Firefighters and the Military. We understand that the vast majority of police take up that calling to serve their fellow man and to try and make their corner of the world a better place. However when one of the boys in blue over-reaches the bounds of his/her authority as laid out in our United States Constitution, they make the rest of the LEOs look bad. Further, when video evidence of that crosses our […]

Manhattan Infidel: My Exclusive Interview with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand

Today at Manhattan Infidel I am pleased to have an exclusive interview with New York’s junior Senator,  the lovely Kirsten Gillibrand. MI: Good afternoon Senator Gillibrand. KG: You called me lovely?  You called me lovely?  I am not your girl toy! MI: Um, sorry. KG: Would you call Chuck Schumer lovely? MI: Well no.  He’s quite homely. KG: Precisely.  I am so sick of you non-Democratic men and your non-Democratic double standards of sexism. MI: Okay, okay.  Let’s start the interview.  In your new book you talk about a senator who called your porky.  Which senator was this? KG: I don’t remember.  I don’t remember his name. […]

New York Government Tries To Force Christian Farmers To Host Same-Sex Marriage

  We have covered this issue before on Political Realities. Our government seems insistent on forcing the homosexual agenda down our throats at a rapid pace. We have seen this happen, time after time. Homosexual couples want to get married. They then proceed to accost Christian business owners, attempting to force them to participate in their perverted version of marriage, providing services to a wedding they can not agree with, in good conscience. We are told that this is not really happening, but OK Politechs has a list of several times this has happened. We can now add one more instance of […]

#Ferguson: Autopsy Shows all Shots Fired From Front

In more #Ferguson news, another piece of the leftist narrative, that Michael Brown was shot in the back, has been debunked.  SooperMexican has more… From the New York Times [emphasis added]: Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

Funny, Funny, Funny: New York City Bus Passenger Schools Angry Female Passenger, Hilarity Ensues

It seems a passenger in a wheel chair delayed a New York City bus. A female passenger is angry because she is going to be late. Listen to the guy, also a passenger, explain why the bus is late, and give her several suggestions as to what she can do about it. Hilarious. This is so New York. Here’s a small snippet of flavor: (Obvious Language Alert) You know what it is? You upset because you got a bulls**t a$$ job, and you late to your bulls**t a$$ job. You can’t buy a car, so you got a bulls**t a$$ […]

Middle School Girls in NY Forced to Ask for Lesbian Kisses as Part of ‘Anti-Bullying’ Lesson

Of course, for the left, “anti-bullying” lessons would involve bullying children-it’s too predictable.  In a NY Middle School, 13-14 year-olds were forced to ask one another for a lesbian kiss, because that somehow prevents bullying.  Christian News, via Gateway Pundit has more… A recent anti-bullying presentation at a middle school in New York that focused on homosexuality and gender identity has angered parents after their daughters have come home to tell them they were forced to ask another girl for a kiss. According to reports, the session occurred last week at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, New York, […]

de Blasio Announces Five-Year Plan for New York City

My new economic plan will collectivize the city! Bill de Blasio, the mayor-elect of New York City has announced a five-year economic plan to revitalize the city. “My New Economic Policy is what this city needs to move forward” declared de Blasio. Naturally this will entail change and change will always be painful to the entrenched capitalist interests.  The first part of the plan will a necessary decree on property. Under this decree stores in New York City will be collectivized.  Store proprietorship will be abolished forthwith without any compensation to the capitalists. de Blasio then gave the details of […]

Global Warming Alert: Parts of US get 30 Inches of Snow Over Memorial Day Weendend!

I usually don’t do much political posting on Memorial Day, but in some parts of the lower 48, residents are having their holiday barbecues in snowdrifts!   Global warming must be up to it’s usual tricks! The Atlantic Wire has more… According to Weather Underground, a couple of other mountain peaks in Vermont reached 18 inches of snow, while some towns with higher elevations clocked in at about 7 inches of snowfall this weekend. To figure out how unusual the snowfall this weekend was, Weather Underground had to go back to 1816: Most famous of all cold and snowy late […]

Gun Control by Default: Make Them too Expensive to Own

I’ve often noted that while liberal love to ban things, like guns, God, the Bible, large soda’s, and salt shakers. They are just as apt to make the targeted item so expensive that that only a few people can afford them.  Typically, the people able to afford said items will be themselves, and their donors/supporters.  Of course, de-facto gun control could be achieved by that same means.  For the latest example of that, let’s go to Gateway Pundit… A bill proposed by New York Democrat Felix Ortiz will force gun owners to carry one million dollars in liability insurance. Guns […]

Setting the Stage: Making Criminals out of Law Abiding Citizens

I think we might be seeing a coordinated effort to make criminals out of law abiding citizens.  For the set up, Gateway Pundit has more… THIS IS AN ORGANIZED NATIONAL EFFORT FOLKS…… This is not a coincidence. It is a concerted effort. Missouri Democrats are pushing a bill to confiscate guns giving gun owners 90 days to turn in their weapons. Minnesota Democrats are pushing the same bill. Dana Loesch has more details. Here is the language: 4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity […]

What Happens When You Turn Law Abiding Citizens into Criminals?

What happens when you turn law abiding citizens into criminals?  In some cases, they refuse to play along with their new role.  For an example, check out the following video, via American Thinker… When rights are taken away, and citizens are turned into criminals by legislative fiat, there will be eventual resistance.  In a sense, governments are setting down a showdown with the citizens whose rights are to be protected by government.  Instead, the state is setting up a situation in which not only are they stripping people of their rights, but the government will eventually have to deprive those […]

Chuck Schumer Channels Nazi Germany, Goes After Americans Attempting to Escape Taxes

We’ve talked about taxes quite a bit here.  We covered that when Maryland passed a special tax on millionaires, one third of their millionaires disappeared, and the state ended up losing money.  When NY passed oppressive cigarette taxes, New Yorkers found ways to evade it, and the state missed their income projections by several country miles.  And, we covered that the early 90’s luxury tax cost tens of thousands of jobs, and then the government ended up paying more for unemployment benefits than they collected in revenue.  In short, tax increases kill jobs, and result in the creation of new […]

New Yorkers Fight Back Against Smoking Ban

Nanny State

We Americans are a rebellious lot, and we definitely do not like being told that we cannot do something.  This fine tradition rears it’s head whenever the nanny state passes a new and more odious edict.  New Yorkers are no different, and seem to be waging a war against the smoking ban in that city.  Reason TV, via Big Government highlights this in a recent video… As you can see, particularly in the case of the retired cop, New Yorkers are not taking kindly to this, and nanny staters like Bloomberg should be aware of that.  Of course, the mafia already, and I have […]

Hurricane Irene Update 8-28-11: New York is next, CH 2.0 Bunker is Soggy UPDATED


For the latest on Hurricane Irene, here is the radar image for the Northeast at approximately 1:15 AM. As you can see, much of  Eastern Pennsylvania is in Irene’s outer bands.  As the morning continues, the storm will make it’s closest approach to NY City.  And, as you might guess, the CH 2.0 bunker is under that blotchy yellow and red.  We’re getting some wind gusts, and some steady rain, but we have power, and the Direct TV is working about 1/2 the time. As the day unfolds, we’re getting some ideas about the scope of the storm, as well […]

Early Evening Hurricane Irene Update 8-27-11: Outer Banks Slammed, New York in the Crosshairs


Here is the latest on Hurricane Irene… Here is what happened about 3 hours ago when Irene hit the Outer Banks of NC… It appears that NY is still under threat from this storm. After that, New England.

Historical Perspective: New England Hurricane of 1938


Since Hurricane Irene will be striking towards New York City, and then further north into New England, it’s worth taking a look at another notable storm that hit the same area.  Before Hurricanes were given names, a killer storm hit that area in 1938.  Here is some newsreel footage, via the Wall Street Journal… Here is another video. It is much longer, with more extensive footage of the disaster. However, the entire second half is a propaganda piece for the New Deal Era WPA. Obviously there are two significant differences between then and now.  One is that Irene is not […]
