McKitrick Paper: No Warming For 19 Years

” The Guardian in 2009 predicted five years of rapid warming:

  The world faces record-breaking temperatures as the sun’s activity increases, leading the planet to heat up significantly faster than scientists had predicted for the next five years, according to a study.

  The hottest year on record was 1998, and the relatively cool years since have led to some global warming sceptics claiming that temperatures have levelled off or started to decline. But new research firmly rejects that argument.

  The research, to be published in Geophysical Research Letters, was carried out by Judith Lean, of the US Naval Research Laboratory, and David Rind, of Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

  Fail. Five more years of no warming followed.

  Professsor Ross McKitrick says in a new paper that the warming pause has now lasted an astonishing 19 years at the surface and 16-26 years in the lower troposphere: “

Bill Gates’ Tech Worker Fantasy

 

 

” Business executives and politicians endlessly complain that there is a “shortage” of qualified Americans and that the U.S. must admit more high-skilled guest workers to fill jobs in STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and math. This claim is echoed by everyone from President Obama and Rupert Murdoch to Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates.

  Yet within the past month, two odd things occurred: Census reported that only one in four STEM degree holders is in a STEM job, and Microsoft announced plans to downsize its workforce by 18,000 jobs. Even so, the House is considering legislation that, like the Senate immigration bill before it, would increase to unprecedented levels the supply of high-skill guest workers and automatic green cards to foreign STEM students.

  As longtime researchers of the STEM workforce and immigration who have separately done in-depth analyses on these issues, and having no self-interest in the outcomes of the legislative debate, we feel compelled to report that none of us has been able to find any credible evidence to support the IT industry’s assertions of labor shortages.”

IRS: Hey, Maybe We Do Have Our E-mail Backups

 

 

 

 

 

” Does the IRS actually have their backups for e-mail from the period when Lois Lerner and her group targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny on tax-exempt applications? The agency claimed a month ago that it overwrote the tapes every six months, in one of the most notorious (and unsuccessful) Friday afternoon document dumps ever. New testimony from one of the IRS’ top lawyers released last night by the House Oversight Committee casts doubt on that story (via Instapundit):

  The IRS might not have lost the backups of former agency administrator Lois Lerner’s emails after all, according to a top IRS official.

  In testimony released Monday, Thomas Kane, the IRS’s deputy associate chief counsel, told House Oversight investigators last week that the agency was examining whether all the back-up tapes which held the emails have been recycled. “

 

 

Now that they’ve had plenty of time to create a bogus email trail they miraculously find the “back-ups” ? Hot Air has more .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Electorate Awakens: Obama Gas And Mortgage Groupie Now Says He Lied About Everything

    Everyone remembers this viral video of Florida mother Peggy Joseph voicing her unqualified support for Santa Obama , the candidate that will pay her mortgage and put gas in her car , but just in case you’ve forgotten just how enthusiastic the woman was here is the video again …

 

 

 

   Fast forward six years and Ms Joseph is whistling a different tune . Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert located Peggy as part of his latest project “There’s No Place Like Utopia” and here is what she has to say after six years of “Hope & Change”.

 

 

 

 

” Remember that South Florida woman who had her fifteen minutes of fame claiming Obama would pay for her mortgage and gas?

  Before the 2008 election, she was filmed saying “I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car, I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. If I help him, he’s going to help me!”

  Well, documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert tracked down Peggy Joseph to see how all that hope and change is working out for her and six years later, she’s had a complete change of heart. After living through Obama’s failed economic policies, she now says “he lied about everything.” “

Bloggers, Surveillance And Obama’s Orwellian State

 

 

 

 

 

 After resigning as the press secretary for President Obama on June 20, Carney gave insight into the Obama administration’s handling of classified documents, and responded to criticism that this administration has been the most Orwellian in recent history.

“ I know — because I covered them — that this was said of Clinton and Bush, and it will probably be said of the next White House,” said Carney in a recent New York Times Magazine interview. “I think a little perspective is useful…It is a serious, serious matter to leak classified information. Some of the debate around this kind of forgets how serious that is.”

 

 

Even in retiring Carney can’t help but pull out the old “Bush did it” card …

 

 

” But, it could also be the changing nature of the relationship between the media and the White House. At a recent event at the New America Foundation, journalists and historians challenged Carney, arguing that this White House has been more secret than previous occupants.

“Increasingly, the Obama White House has become so brittle, and so controlling of the message, that people are afraid to respond to me,” said Kimberly Dozier, a former Associated Press reporter. She was one of the journalists whose phone records were obtained by the Department of Justice last spring during its investigation into a leak of classified information about a failed Al-Qaeda plot. The scope of that investigation, some critics said, was unprecedented overreach.

  According to ProPublica, the Obama administration has filed eight cases under the Espionage Act, which criminalizes disclosing information harmful to national security. Before the Obama administration, only three known cases had ever been charged under the act.”

 

    In the end Time reverts to it’s roots and blames bloggers in justifying the administration crack-down on journalistic freedom , comparing bloggers to “pamphleteers” and calling for them to uphold “the same standards as 20th century journalists” … LOL , not exactly setting a very high bar now are they ?  … Read the rest at Time

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rep. Issa: Lerner ‘Broke Some Laws;’ Emails Show Her Attorney ‘Outright Lied A Number of Times’

 

 

Issa Crowley

 

 

 

” House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) had a testy interview with Candy Crowley on CNN’s “State of the Union” yesterday, where he asserted that Lois Lerner “broke some laws” and “sent 1.1 million tax records” with illegal confidential information “on conservative groups” to the Department of Justice.

  Issa also claimed that Lerner’s attorney has “said things and been not correct, or disingenuous, or outright lied a number of times, and it’s been shown by e-mails.” 

  After pointing out that although Lois Lerner’s emails are missing due to her hard drive crash, 20,000 emails have been retrieved through other means, Candy Crowley asked: “Did Lois Lerner crash her own computer?”

” We will probably never know that – the drive is physically gone,” Issa replied. “

Trey Gowdy’s Not Having It: IRS Head Gets Cute About ‘Lost’ Emails & Has the Grin Wiped Off His Face

 

 

 

 

 

” During a rare Monday night hearing, House Republicans hammered embattled IRS commissioner John Koskinen over the “lost” Lois Lerner emails and over his continued insistence that there was no criminal wrongdoing in their coincidental disappearance.

  While, as to be expected, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) repeatedly challenged Koskinen, for instance, when he demanded that he cite a particular statute or statutes (law, viz.) on which to base his claim that no criminal wrongdoing occurred. When the commissioner replied, “you can rely on common sense,” Gowdy went off:

“ Common sense? Instead of a criminal code, you wanna rely on common sense? You can shake your head all you want to commissioner; you have said today that there’s no evidence of criminal wrongdoing and I’m asking you what criminal statutes you have reviewed to reach that conclusion?”

  Koskinen finally conceded: “I have reviewed no criminal statutes.”

  Ironically, the commissioner also insisted that outdated technology was to blame and that it would cost the IRS $10-30 million to update its systems.

  In response, Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) reminded Koskinen that the IRS paid $89 million in bonuses last year, including $1 million to employees who owed back taxes. Not a good day for the defiant commissioner of the IRS.”

 

 

     John Koskinen is the epitome of the smug , arrogant , elitist bureaucrat . It is a pleasure to see him squirm under the wrathful ire of Rep Gowdy even though there seems to be no new info forthcoming from any of these hearings .

Clinton: I’m Not ‘Truly Well Off’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Hillary Clinton, who has a net worth upwards of $50 million, said in an interview that she is “unlike a lot of people who are truly well off.”

  Clinton was derided for comments made last week that her family was “dead broke” when it left the White House in 2000 although they were far from the poverty line. Bill and Hillary Clinton have reportedly made more than $100 million since leaving the White House.

  But Hillary, who charges a six figure speaking fee, says with a burst of laughter that she is not “truly well off” and that her wealth is the result of “hard work,” according to The Guardian.”

 

If $100 million income doesn’t qualify as “well off” what does Hillary ?

Is That A Smoking Gun I Smell? IRS Had Archiving Company Contracted In 2005

 

 

 

 

 

” Is that a smoking gun  I smell?  It turns out the IRS contracted with a company that provides email backup services starting in 2005.  This first came to light in the Twitter feed of moregenr, who noticed that the IRS appears on the client list of email  archiving service provider Sonasoft.

  The IRS had a contract with email backup service vendor Sonasoft starting in 2005, according to FedSpending.org, which lists the contract as being for “automatic data processing services.” Sonasoft’s motto is “email archiving done right,” and the company lists the IRS as a customer.

  In 2009, Sonasoft even sent out a Tweet advertising its work for the IRS. “

Radio Host Lays Out Plan to Get “Open Carriers Killed!

 

 

 

” Radical left wing Atlanta based radio show host Mike Malloy has allegedly devised a plan to get lawful “open carriers” killed intentionally!

   Malloy stated, “I guess what I’ll do if I’m ever in that situation and I see one of these half-witted yahoos walking in with a weapon, high-caliber rifle like that, I’ll just put on a berserk act.I will just start screaming Gun! Gun! Gun! Watch out, everybody hit the deck! Guns! Guns! Everybody! And then dial 911 and I will say, shots fired, which will bring every g**-damned cop within 15 miles. And then the half-wits with the long guns are going to panic and they’re going to run out of the store and if that rifle isn’t shouldered properly, the cop is going to take a look at that and put a bullet right in their forehead.”

IRS Has Lost More E-mails . . .

 

 

 

 

 

 

” It’s not just Lois Lerner’s e-mails. The Internal Revenue Service says it can’t produce e-mails from six more employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups, according to two Republicans investigating the scandal.

  The IRS recently informed Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp and subcommittee chairman Charles Boustany that computer crashes resulted in additional lost e-mails, including from Nikole Flax, the chief of staff to former IRS commissioner Steven Miller, who was fired in the wake of the targeting scandal.

  The revelation about Lerner’s e-mails rekindled the targeting scandal and today’s news has further inflamed Republicans. Camp and Boustany are now demanding a special prosecutor to investigate “every angle” of the events that led to Lois Lerner’s revelation in May 2013 that the agency had used inappropriate criteria to review the applications for tax exemption.

  The lawmakers expressed particular outrage that the agency has known since February that it would not be able to produce the e-mails requested by the committee yet did not apprise the committee of that fact, and they charged in a statement that the IRS is attempting to “cover up the fact that it convenient lost key documents in the investigation.” “

VIDEO: College Students Asked To Help Get Hillary Out Of Debt; Their Reactions Are A Must Watch

 

 

 

 

” Hillary Clinton cried ‘woe is me’ as she lamented on the ‘fact’ that she and her husband Bill were not only dead broke when they left the White House, they were also, according to Hillary, in debt. Given the fact that they lived in the White House for 8 years with nearly all of their expenses paid, many have found that supposed fact that Hillary is trying to sell to be simple not believable. In addition, the fact that Hillary received an $8 million signing bonus for her memoirs soon after they left the White House makes her claim even more laughable.

  Charging $200,000 per speech, Bill and Hillary Clinton have raked in the dough to help pay for the houses that Hillary claims they struggled to afford. They have supposedly made over $100 million since they left the White House. 

  Caleb Bonham, from Campus Reform, ventured onto the Georgetown Campus in Washington, DC to collect donations from students for the “Hillary Clinton Fund for Broke Politicians.” The reactions from the students are quite funny and some of them have some choice words that address Hillary’s claim. The fund received a whopping $5.62 in total donations which, Campus Reform says, was sent to the Clintons posh residence in D.C.”

The Dog Ate My E-Mails, For Two Years

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Who knew that the Obama administration had a penchant for black humor? Earlier this year, in February, President Obama told Bill O’Reilly during an interview on Fox News that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the IRS scandal involving the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups. In July 2013, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew foreshadowed his boss’s nonchalance by insisting that there was “no evidence” that any political appointee had been involved in the scandal.

  Now we may know why. After months of delay in responding to congressional inquiries, the IRS now claims that, for the period of January 2009 to April 2011, all e-mails between Lois Lerner — the IRS official at the center of the scandal — and anyone outside the IRS were wiped out by a “computer crash.” As House Ways and Means chairman Dave Camp wrote in a statement, this loss means that “we are conveniently left to believe that Lois Lerner acted alone.” After all, there isn’t a “smidgen” of e-mail evidence to suggest otherwise.”

 

 

As Mr Fund explains , it is virtually impossible for all of those emails to have disappeared without a trace …

 

 

” A growing number of computer professionals are stepping forward to say that none of this makes sense. Norman Cillo, a former program manager at Microsoft, told The Blaze: “I don’t know of any e-mail administrator [who] doesn’t have at least three ways of getting that mail back. It’s either on the disks or it’s on a TAPE backup someplace on an archive server.” Bruce Webster, an IT expert with 30 years of experience consulting with dozens of private companies, seconds this opinion: “It would take a catastrophic mechanical failure for Lerner’s drive to suffer actual physical damage, but in any case, the FBI should be able to recover something. And the FBI and the Justice Department know it.”

 

 

 

 

    Lies , lies and more lies , that’s all we ever get from the “most open , honest and transparent administration” in history …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As With All Things Progressive It All Depends On What The Meaning Of “Is” Is

 

 

    By now everyone has heard of the latest effort from Nanny Bloomberg as the astroturfers in the liberal media regarding the epidemic of “school shootings” since Sandy Hook . 74 of them if the usual suspects are to be believed . Since this meme seems to be spreading like wildfire across the web we thought we would make a concerted effort to quantify exactly what the gun grabber Statists consider to be “school shootings” .

   Below is our result . Make of it what you will and please understand that by quibbling with the Statist’s methodology we are in no way minimizing the pain and horror felt by the families that are made to suffer at the hands of thugs with guns .  However , all sympathies aside , that does not grant the Left license to twist the English language to their will .

 Let us start by saying that in our minds a school shooting at least as they have come to be understood is an incident where an disgruntled individual , whether it be student or adult enters a place of education with the intent to “avenge wrongs” however warped or imagined they may be by killing and maiming as many students and/or faculty as possible , usually before taking their own lives .

 If that definition is acceptable it stands to reason that other types of shootings , whatever the reason , are not exactly honest comparisons to “going postal” . That means that common robberies , suicides , arguments over games , debts , girlfriends and what have you should be categorized as what they truly are , at least to those without an agenda , crimes , plain old ordinary , violent crimes .

 That being the case , Everytown’s map is very misleading to say the least , and downright deceitful to be perfectly honest.We took they time to explore every single incident included on Bloomy’s map and provide the reader with a synopsis of the fatalities/injuries links to the sources and a diagnosis of the type of shooting that each incident represents .

Below is our result , survey the data , follow the links , bookmark the page and feel free to use these facts in any refutation you might need to defend against the Statists in your sphere of influence . At the end we have provided an approximate count on the actual school shootings that meet our above mentioned criteria along with what we feel are “other” categories … ie , robbery , suicide , lovers spats , gang violence , accidental discharges , fights that escalate to arms , etc .

    There is your data . As you can see each alleged “school shooting” from the infamous map , as defined by Bloomberg & Co is represented with a link to a legitimate news story about the incident . Two incidents claimed by the map were unable to be corroborated by yours truly and so that brings the count to 72 alleged incidents .

   Of those 72 “school shootings” we can only count 8 as meeting our criteria as far as being as school shooting in the Columbine/Sandy Hook interpretation . Of course none of them come anywhere near the horror of those but that is an argument for another day . 

   Of the 64  incidents left our count leads us to the following statistics : 

 

     Gang related/Drive-by – 3

     Robbery/Crime – 6

      Fights – 13

      Suicides – 10

      Personal – 8

      After Hours/Proximity To School – 12

      Accidental Discharges/Irresponsible Shooting/Stray Bullets – 10

      Self-Defense – 2

 

    The death toll for all of these shootings combined compares to the average weekend in Chicago at 31 fatalities . Of those thirty one lost lives ten were non-students who were found/killed on school property after hours , eight were suicides , three were the perpetrators themselves and one was a criminal killed in self-defense which leaves nine students and/or teachers killed . 

It goes without saying that any loss of life is a tragedy but at the same time it is just as unseemly to dishonestly climb atop the graves of these unfortunate lost souls and attempt to gain cheap political points in order to further one’s personal agenda and that is what is taking place here .

    Bloomberg and his allies , like the progressives in general , are attempting to tug at the heartstrings and push their legislative goals wrapped as a moral imperative that is not to be questioned under pain of being called uncaring . It’s just another card out of the “racist” deck cavalry . Whenever they are losing an argument on the merits they jump up , knock the cards from the table and cry “have you no decency” ?

Just an aside before we leave you . The number of children that die at the hands of their parents every year in America dwarves the numbers above . Yes , you read correctly . It is estimated that somewhere in the neighborhood of 400 children under the age of five are killed each year by their parents . Think about that before deciding that school shootings are some sort of epidemic .

Hillary’s Lack Of Leadership Skills Is Exposed For All To See … By , Of All People , Diane Sawyer

 

 

 

 

 

Published on Jun 9, 2014

” Hillary Clinton Monday night, Diane Sawyer turned focus to Benghazi and grilled Clinton over the “systemic failure” of security on that fateful night. She asked Clinton whether she should have been more involved instead of delegating on security issues at the Benghazi compound.

  Clinton said there were serious security threats, but that’s true of compounds all around the world, and when Sawyer grilled her on how high a priority Benghazi would be, Clinton said it would place in the top 10, but not the top 5, security concerns to the State Department.

  Sawyer repeatedly pressed Clinton on whether there was anything she could have personally done that would have prevented the attack. Clinton said that the reality is while you can be thoughtful and place people where you need them, “we cannot eliminate every threat, every danger.”

  Clinton also took a shot at Republicans for “politicizing this at the expense of four dead Americans,” and said she would have to wait and see whether she would testify in front of the House Benghazi select committee. http://www.mediaite.com/tv/diane-sawy… “

 

 

 

    Nothing but excuse making and blame shifting from a desperate potential presidential candidate . The only thing missing is the “It’s Bush’s fault” meme . To the very end Hillary insists … “What difference does it make?”

 

 

 

Believe it or not Hillary , it makes a great deal of difference to a great deal of us . We will remember .

Retiree Dies In Police Custody After Traffic Stop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Florida authorities are investigating the death of a man in Key West after he was arrested by police.

  The Michigan retiree moved to the island paradise for sun and sand, but that came to a sudden end after a routine traffic stop.

  Eimers had just arrived from Michigan when Key West police pulled him over in front of a Pizza Hut for reckless driving. According to police, he fled the scene and several officers followed him to a beach.

  Official documents obtained by CBS News offer differing accounts of Eimers’ encounter with police and what happened next. In the police report, Eimers was charged with resisting an officer “with violence.

  But officers on the scene told paramedics a different story. An EMS report indicates Key West police told paramedics that Eimers left his vehicle and ran, then collapsed on the beach. He never regained consciousness.”

 

 

Charles Eimers Death

 

 

 

” Hospital records say that Eimers “was found without a pulse by police” and later died at the hospital from lack of oxygen to the brain.

  But a cell phone video – shot by a bystander and released nearly two weeks after the arrest – shows none of those versions are accurate. Eimers can be seen walking away from his car and surrendering before police approach with guns drawn.

  Treavor Eimers said, “I watched the video, and I had no words. Everything that I was told while I was here was a lie.”

 

   A suspicious death involving the police and yet there was to be no autopsy , a clear violation of Florida law ? Hospital records destroyed ? A quick cremation ? WTF ? Can you spell coverup ?

Great Moments In Tolerance: Howard Dean Says Republicans Aren’t Americans

 

 

 

 

 

 

Old and busted: Dissent is patriotic! New hotness: People who disagree with Democrats on voter-ID laws should “go to Ukraine or Russia!” This sounds an awful lot like the “America — love it or leave it” argument during the Vietnam War to which anti-war Democrats so loudly objected at the time. Look who’s suddenly equating citizenship to shut-up-ship (via Twitchy):

 

 

” Howard Dean, who is still alive, told attendees at a fundraiser for a Democratic congressional hopeful that Republicans “are not American” and would “be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia.” He also screamed that GOP supporters should “stay away from our country.”

  Dean, a former Vermont governor, a former Democratic National Committee chairman and a 2004 presidential candidate, made the statements last week in a fit of zeal as he was speaking in support of Colorado 6th Congressional District candidate Andrew Romanoff.

“ This is a Republican party that has decided they like power so much that they think it’s okay to win by taking away the right to vote,” Dean told the gathered assembly of 750 people at Dora’s Mexican Restaurant in Aurora, Colo.

“ They are not American,” he bellowed. “They could be more comfortable in the Ukraine or Russia but stay away from our country. This is based on the right to vote.””

Where The World’s Unsold Cars Go To Die

 

” In the past several years, one of the topics covered in detail on these pages has been the surge in such gimmicks designed to disguise lack of demand and end customer sales, used extensively by US automotive manufacturers, better known as “channel stuffing”, of which General Motors is particularly guilty and whose inventory at dealer lots just hit a new record high. But did you know that when it comes to flat or declining sales and stagnant end demand, channel stuffing is merely the beginning?

Presenting…

 

Where the World’s Unsold Cars Go To Die (courtesy of Vincent Lewis’ Unsold Cars)
 
 

” Above is just a few of the thousands upon thousands of unsold cars at Sheerness, United Kingdom. Please do see this on Google Maps….type in Sheerness, United Kingdom. Look to the west coast, below River Thames next to River Medway. Left of A249, Brielle Way.”

 

 

Unsold Cars Sheerness UK

 

 

” There are hundreds of places like this in the world today and they keep on piling up…

  Houston…We have a problem!…Nobody is buying brand new cars anymore! Well they are, but not on the scale they once were. Millions of brand new unsold cars are just sitting redundant on runways and car parks around the world. There, they stay, slowly deteriorating without being maintained.”

 

 

 

 

 

” There is proof that the worlds recession is still biting and wont let go. All around the world there are huge stockpiles of unsold cars and they are being added to every day. They have run out of space to park all of these brand new unsold cars and are having to buy acres and acres of land to store them.

  The images on this webpage showing all of these unsold cars are just a very small portion of those around the world. There are literally thousands of these “car parks” rammed full of unsold cars in practically every country on the planet. Just in case you were wondering, these images have not been Photoshopped, they are the real deal!

  Its hard to believe that there are so many unsold cars in the world but its true. The worse part is that the amount of unsold cars keeps on getting bigger every day.”

What Trey Gowdy Says At The End Of This Interview Should Shock Every American…

 

 

” Jake Tapper of CNN’s “The Lead” had Rep. Trey Gowdy on to talk about the Benghazi investigation try to poke holes in any Benghazi investigation.

  Tapper played video of the former deputy director of the CIA, Michael Morrell, testifying that the CIA did believe that the video could be involved.  He obviously thought that this negated any need for an investigation by Trey Gowdy and the special committee and proceeded to ask Gowdy to comment on the CIA director’s comments.

  Trey Gowdy has a great response. But what he says at the end should shock every American. If its truly this bad, then this investigation is going to bring a lot of people down.”

Brigadier General On Failure To Rescue Americans In Benghazi

” Dominos are falling in the Benghazi cover-up. Today, explosive and emotional testimony from Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell (Ret.), former Intelligence Director of U.S. Africa Command, rocked the House Government Oversight Committee. Lowell held his post at the time of the Benghazi attack, which fell into his area of command. From the U.S. base in Stuttgart, Germany, Lovell watched the message traffic relating to Benghazi, in real time, as the attack was unfolding.

  As Lovell stated, it is “my duty” to come forward to give the American people a “full forthcoming” about what happened. The discussion in the post-Benghazi investigations has focused on issues such as time, distance and assets that could have been used to rescue the Americans under attack. However, said Lovell, his voice filling with emotion,

 

“The point is we should have tried. The military is trained to go in the direction of gunfire.”

In Benghazi they did not, and the question remains why.”

Why Cuomo Is No Longer Invincible

 

cuomo-arrogant

 

 

” As his run for re-election starts to gear up, Gov. Cuomo is in surprisingly weak shape. With a huge war chest in a heavily Democratic state, he’s still the odds-on favorite — but he’s suddenly looking a lot more vulnerable.

Here are 10 big reasons why the governor has to worry.

  He burned Mayor de Blasio. Sure, he made himself look good to centrist voters by humiliating the new herald of progressivism on both pre-K and charter schools. But he also earned a black eye with the left — and made an enemy of the mayor, who after all is the top politician in a city where Cuomo needs a lot of votes come November.

  He’s annoyed the public-employee unions. He tightened the state school-aid spigot and put in his property-tax cap, making it harder for teachers locals across New York to win higher pay. Then he pushed for test-based teacher evaluations, anathema to the unions. (Yes, the scheme never had real teeth, but unions can’t stand the precedent.) And he topped it all off with his embrace of charters — which the unions, not without reason, see as a naked bid for fat hedge-fund donations. Other unions feel burned because he forced modest contracts on most state-employee unions and won minor public-pension reforms. They won’t go to war on him for that — but why should they lift a finger to help?Now his sudden rush to win some union friends is getting ugly. Few voters will notice or care that the Transit Workers Union contract pays for raises by adding hundreds of millions to the MTA’s long-term liabilities — but they can understand a $6 million TWU slush fund.

  His robotic pretense that he’s still “studying” fracking after three-plus years is an oozing political sore. It tells people leading hardscrabble lives all across Upstate that he cares more about millionaires and special interests than he does about them — and doesn’t even have the guts to be upfront about it. The hypocrisy of his pose is so rank, it’s hard to see how anyone can trust his word on anything, public or private.”
