(Natural News) It seems New York State has been spending its annual budget on everything but infrastructure. Though infrastructure is one of the most elemental responsibilities, in lieu of patching up crumbling bridges or potholes littering the streets, Buffalo teachers and their families now get free plastic surgery included in their contracts, News Day reported.Furthermore, New York just passed a law to give free college tuition to hundreds of thousands of students from middle-class families, and a huge percentage of LIRR retirees are receiving disability payments in addition to their pensions. But what about the safety of New York’s citizens?The longer repairs are delayed, the more expensive they become. No matter how big the issue, the nation’s aging, crumbling infrastructure has been dropped into a pigeonhole and filed away for too many years. Today, however, the dire condition of our nation’s infrastructure can no longer be ignored. Collapsed dams, crumbling … [Read more...] about City infrastructure crumbling as NY subway trains now being held together with ZIP TIES
(Natural News) After years of looking for a way to silence WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, whose site has been responsible for publishing revelation after revelation about the back-handed deals and illegal activity undertaken by political organizations, public figures and governments, the U.S. government appears set to arrest him and charge him with espionage.Only, if that happens, the government should also be charging several “mainstream media” reporters who also published sensitive intelligence information given to them by various Deep State sources.As reported by CNN, a formal probe of Assange began in 2010 during the Obama administration, which sought some form of legal retribution after WikiLeaks published thousands of documents provided by a former junior U.S. intelligence analyst, then known as PVT Bradley Manning, but who now goes by Chelsea Manning.

Jessica Chastain’s role in Miss Sloane helped her gain insight into politics. In an interview with Confidential, Chastain had this to say about her role and what she learned: “There’s a lot of money in DC. There’s no question about that. I met with congressmen and senators, and one congressman told me he would usually go to three fundraisers a day to maintain a seat. I think everyone wants to eliminate that aspect of politics.” Chastain looked super fit at the premiere for her new film, which is thanks to her vegan diet and her yoga and aerobics workouts. Like many actors and actresses, Chastain is not a stranger to gaining and losing weight for roles. For example, when she starred in The Help, she had to put on 15 pounds. Even still, Chastain managed to get back to her fit self by following simple, healthy living steps that helped her achieve her weight loss. Chastain has been a vegan for the last five years and was previously a vegetarian for 15 years. … [Read more...] about Jessica Chastain’s Miss Sloane Role Helped Her Gain Insight into Politics as Actress Continued to Stun at Premiere
(NaturalNews) I’ve warned Natural News readers about this several times over the last decade: Do NOT become an organ donor! Although you may wish to help others out of the goodness of your (literal) heart, the sinister truth is that doctors routinely harvest organs from LIVING patients right here in the USA. And here’s yet more proof. This true story will astound you. A woman named Colleen Burns recently opened her eyes to find herself on an operating table in a hospital in Syracuse, NY. Looking around, she noticed that she was the subject of the operation. It turns out doctors were about to harvest her organs and send them to other waiting surgeons who would transplant them into other patients. This isn’t fiction. It was covered by ABC News and several other news sources. It really happened. And how did it happen? Doctors falsely pronounced her dead by fraudulently claiming she had suffered “cardiopulmonary … [Read more...] about Horror as patient wakes up in NY hospital with doctors trying to harvest her organs for transplant profits
by Long Island Attorney Paul A. Lauto, Esq. New York’s gift and estate tax law has changed effective April 1, 2014 and some of it is good, some of it is bad and some of it is really ugly. The law enacted differs from the proposed law, as detailed in our March 10, 2014 blog. The good news is that the NYS estate tax exemption limit, will gradually increase over the next five years to match the federal estate tax exemption limit. The increased limits are as follows: The bad news, is that the new law has imposed a 3 year look back period for gifts. That means that gifts made within 3 years prior to death, will be added back in to the estate for tax purposes. The exceptions are gifts made prior to April 1, 2014, gifts made while not a New York resident and gifts made on or after January 1, 2019. Now for the ugly part of the new law. Previously, estate tax was payable on the amount that exceeded the estate tax exemption limit. Under the new … [Read more...] about The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Of NY’s Gift And Estate Tax Changes
