Rudy Giuliani Spills To Jan 6 Committee, Screams At Heckler, Dubs Himself 'Mayor Of The World'

Rudy Giuliani seems a little tense. The former mayor showed up in New York City yesterday for the Celebrate Israel parade, which was taking place for the first time in three years due to the pandemic. The president’s pro bono lawyer was happily reliving his glory days and waving to an adoring — or at least not openly hostile — crowd, when his reverie was interrupted by a heckler shouting insults.

Over 9 hours, Jan. 6 committee finally gets answers from Giuliani

Looking back at Donald Trump and his team’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election, it might be tempting to think of Rudy Giuliani as some kind of hapless, buffoonish figure. It was two days after the race was called, for example, when the former New York City mayor held a head-shaking press conference in Philadelphia at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping parking lot, near a sex shop and a crematorium.

Thanks, Biden: illegal ‘nutcracker’ drinks sell at inflated $15 in NYC

Talk about a real kick to the groin. Prices of alcohol are rising nationwide, even reaching the bootleg market of the Big Apple as nutcrackers — an illegal boozy beverage sold by park and beach vendors around NYC — are skyrocketing to $15 a bottle. The summertime favorite since the 1990s — a dealer’s choice concoction of fruit juice and liquor in a plastic bottle — used to sell in 8-ounce bottles for $5 or 12-ounce bottles for $10, Kareem Middleton, a seller in Bed-Stuy, previously told The Post. But on Sunday, Sydney Pereira, a journalist at Hell Gate, tweeted that she...

What Yankee Fans Did Yesterday Was Absolutely Abhorrent

I’ve been a Yankees fan long enough and sat in the bleachers enough times to be let down by our fanbase before. Yankee fans do research on right fielders’ wives and mothers. They throw beer cans. They have a startlingly accurate memory for strikeouts and errors. They probably aren’t the “worst fanbase on the planet” (as Cleveland Guardians outfielder Myles Straw alleged earlier this year) but only Derek Jeter can convincingly call them the best.

A duo repeatedly slashed a 40-year-old man during what appears to be an unprovoked attack in the Bronx, cops said.  Video released late Sunday shows the pair getting out of a white work van around 3:10 p.m. Friday in front of the Hotel Ninety Five Fordham on Third Avenue near East 180th Street, police said.  Then they approached the victim — who had just left the hotel — and knifed him repeatedly on the neck and arm, authorities said.  The victim was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital in critical condition, but he has since stabilized, authorities said.  The suspects took off in the van.  The victim claims the attack was unprovoked, cops said. 

Report: Dark Horse Team Named For Aaron Judge

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is on an absolute tear this season. And even though he and New York weren't able to work out an extension this past offseason to keep him in pinstripes; it's hard to imagine The Honorable Aaron Judge in any other uniform. That said, while ESPN MLB...

Police are looking to question a Brooklyn man with a lengthy rap sheet in connection to the unprovoked, broad-daylight shooting death of a subway rider on the Manhattan Bridge, law enforcement sources told The Post Monday — as cops released surveillance images of the suspect in the deadly incident.
