Source: ABC News

A couple was arrested after they allegedly shouted anti-Semitic slurs at three Hasidic men in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and tried to rip off their face-coverings while blaming them for the spread of the coronavirus, the NYPD said.

Paulo and Clelia Pinho, 35 and 46 respectively, of Queens, were charged with hate crimes for the incident that took place around 8:30 p.m. Sunday at the corner of Bedford Avenue and Ross Street, the police said. Paul Pinho allegedly called 911 to report a large crowd gathering, according to police.

He and his wife allegedly got out of their car, accosted the men, shouting out slurs and attempted to take away their face coverings, according to the NYPD.

"You’re the reason why we’re getting sick,” one of the suspects allegedly said, according to police.

Source: CBS local

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There were multiple arrests after protesters gathered at Grand Central before taking to the streets Friday night.

Police struggled to hold back the elbow-to-elbow protesters covering the main floor of Grand Central Terminal.
The group started gathering just after 5 p.m., many wearing masks and carrying anti-police posters. Some tried to hang banners in the terminal, all aiming to disrupt the evening commute.

Three masked members of the protest group could be seen in a Twitter video encouraging people to skip fares, damage turnstiles and engage in a mass sabotage of the MTA, pointing followers toward a demonstration at Grand Central.

The group says it wants to abolish subway fares and get rid of police patrols in the transit system.

"abolish subway fares and get rid of police patrols". Yeah, THAT will work just fine!!
Supposedly grown adults. Glad it fizzled out, as these fiascos usually do, without the police having to use a ton of force

Source: CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Jewish people say they are living in fear after a spike in anti-Semitic attacks.

According to the NYPD, there were 229 such crimes in New York City last year alone. That’s more than all other hate crimes combined.
That number was also about 20 percent higher than 2018, when there were 185.


On Thursday, the NYPD charged a 24-year-old woman overnight in an anti-Semitic attack against a young Jewish man in Williamsburg.

Police said the 22-year-old victim was assaulted shortly before 1 p.m. on Wednesday. It was the 13th reported anti-Semitic hate crime across the city since Dec. 23 — the first full day of Chanukah.
“No one should have to put up with walking down the street, being concerned with how I am dressed that I may be a target of an attack,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said.

Maryland real estate company surprises employees with $10 million bonus to split

Source: YahooFinance

St. John Properties, a Baltimore-based commercial real estate property management and development company, provided a $10 million bonus for its 198 employees to split at its annual holiday party on Dec. 7.

“The [bonus] distribution was based solely on years of service. It had nothing to do with a person's position in the company,” Larry Maykrantz, president of St. John Properties, told Yahoo Finance in a phone interview. “We spent a little bit of time discussing it and believe me, once we made that decision, we realized that was the only fair and equitable way of handling this.”

Individual employee bonuses ranged from $100 to $270,000, according to the company’s LinkedIn post. On average, each employee received about $50,000.

Nancy Pelosi Is Worried 2020 Candidates Are on Wrong Track

https://news.yahoo.com/nancy-pelosi-worried-2020-candidates-100000963.html

Speaker Nancy Pelosi is issuing a pointed message to Democrats running for president in 2020: Those liberal ideas that fire up the party’s base are a big loser when it comes to beating President Donald Trump.

Proposals pushed by Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders like Medicare for All and a wealth tax play well in liberal enclaves like her own district in San Francisco but won’t sell in the Midwestern states that sent Trump to the White House in 2016, she said.

“What works in San Francisco does not necessarily work in Michigan,” Pelosi said at a roundtable of Bloomberg News reporters and editors on Friday. “What works in Michigan works in San Francisco — talking about workers’ rights and sharing prosperity.”

“Remember November,” she said. “You must win the Electoral College.”

Sanders draws contrast with Warren: She says 'she is a capitalist through her bones; I'm not'


"There are differences between Elizabeth and myself," Sanders, I-Vt., said in an interview with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. "Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I'm not."

You know time is running out when you think stating you're NOT a Capitalist will actually GAIN you votes.

How many here think a defeated trump will NOT attend the new Presidents inauguration?

I actually think he will NOT. He is that shallow.

CBS2 Exclusive: Man Vows To Move Forward After Suspected Anti-Semitic Attack In Brooklyn Park

Source: CBS New York

A 63-year-old man was attacked with a paving stone while exercising in a park.

The suspect allegedly yelled an anti-Semitic slur before blindsiding the victim.
Abraham Gopin was jogging near the ballfields inside Lincoln Terrace Park around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when he was attacked.

“There was a battlefield… When he saw me, he jumped towards me… Shutting rocks with full force towards my head,” he told CBS2’s Jenna DeAngelis. “Then, he jumped on me and start to fight with me, trying to knock me in the face – probably, I would say, 20, 25, 30 times with his fists, and I was protecting myself.”

Gopin’s family said a stranger approached him in the park, yelled a slur and punched him in the face. The suspect then hit the 63-year-old over the head with a paving stone, breaking his nose and knocking out his teeth.

“It was a hate… he said Jew, Jew. He said something in that direction,” he said. “He was for certain looking to kill. No doubt about it.”

Top Defector Tells of Spying, Stealing and Mutiny in Venezuela

Source: Yahoo News

Days after being named chief of Venezuela’s feared Sebin intelligence agency last fall, General Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera was called in by President Nicolas Maduro and asked where the enemy was.

“I don’t understand the question, sir,” Figuera says he responded.

“I want a report every two hours of what the political opposition is doing,” Maduro replied, listing some of the 30 politicians whose whereabouts and activities were to be surveilled. Reports, he said, needed to be sent not only to him but to his wife, Cilia Flores, and to Vice President Delcy Rodriguez. The monitoring involved spreadsheets with photos, mobile phone taps and round-the-clock shifts of on-the-ground four-agent teams observing movements and meetings.

Figuera, the most significant Venezuelan defector of the past two decades, is in the U.S. offering details of Maduro’s increasingly authoritarian rule and the schemes by which he, his family and associates embezzle the proceeds of oil, gold and other national treasures as the once-wealthy nation of 30 million descends into chaos and starvation.
