Donald Trump Jr. talks about running for governor of New York | Page Six

Donald Trump Jr. wants to run for political office, telling members of an elite gun club that he could set his sights on becoming governor of New York.Don Jr. spoke to members of the F6 Labs gun club in Hicksville, NY, and, when asked about his political ambitions, said he would love to follow his father, President Donald Trump, into office.A guest at Tuesday’s meeting told Page Six, “Don Jr. said he is interested in running for office, such as governor of New York, but the position of mayor of New York would be less interesting to him.”Don Jr. added that he didn’t want to be one of 100 Senators, nor a member of Congress.Campaigning alongside his father made him think about his future, with him saying, “Do I want to be behind the scenes and be a mouthpiece and fight back against crazy liberal media? Maybe.” Don Jr. joked that he missed the intensity of the presidential campaign: “Going back to doing deals is boring after 18 months. The politics bug bit me.”Since his father was sworn in, he and his brother Eric have taken over the Trump Organization.While Don Jr. didn’t indicate when he’d run, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is up for re-election in 2018, although he’s been named as a possible presidential candidate for 2020.Cuomo’s clashed with President Trump on immigration, climate change and Obamacare, and has also pushed for regulation of firearms.Don Jr., meanwhile, seems to be laying the groundwork with gun advocates. He’s an avid hunter who’s stalked elephants and posed with a dead leopard in a controversial Twitter post.Modal TriggerDonald Trump Jr., Melania Trump and Donald TrumpWireImageSpeaking in front of a group that included Nassau Police Commish Thomas Krumpter, vodka company owner Marty Silver, lawyer and lobbyist Brad Gerstman and restaurateur Chris Tsarsi, Don Jr. said he would oppose anything that restricts the Second Amendment, and he supports state reciprocity laws, which allow guns to be carried from state to state with a permit.He also spends every weekend in the Catskills hunting, fishing and shooting with his family.A Trump source added, “Don [Jr.] has no intentions of running for political office at this time . . . [He] is totally focused on running the Trump Organization with his brother.”

‘A night of erotic freedom’ at NYC’s most exclusive sex party | New York Post

Prowling wolflike around the sex party at a downtown hotel, hopeful guest Josh (who doesn’t want his last name mentioned) goes from black-lingerie-clad girl to black-lingerie-clad girl, asking for French kisses.The 26-year-old Russian gets lucky a few times, but has a consolation prize for those who reject his advances — he hands them his business card, which boasts his job title of “chief technology officer” and a swank address on Park Avenue.Last Saturday, about 100 of New York’s rich and beautiful gathered in the presidential suite of a downtown five-star hotel for orgies and live sex shows. It was the first of several Manhattan parties held by Snctm, an elite erotic club based in Los Angeles that counts Gwyneth Paltrow and Bill Maher among its fans. The Post had exclusive access to the party but agreed not to name the location, where partiers got kinky on an outdoor terrace, tiptoeing around a giant, glass-bottomed Jacuzzi.Modal TriggerMatthew McDermottAlthough there is sex aplenty, Gothamites are found to be a bit less freewheeling and more interested in professional connections than their laid-back California counterparts.“It’s so new, and a lot of first-timers are voyeurs,” Snctm director of operations Nicolas de la Kethulle tells The Post. “Maybe we are more frivolous in LA because it’s been happening there for five years.”Men pay $1,500 to $1,875 (the discount rate applies when you bring a female partner) to attend each party, or buy an annual VIP membership for $75,000, which includes admission to all parties, access to private rooms, unlimited Cristal Champagne and a sterling silver pendant that shows they’re at the top of the food chain. Carefully vetted, beautiful women — who outnumber the guys by about three to one — pay zilch.“We had close to 1,000 applications for this event and we’re letting in about 100,” explains Snctm founder Damon Lawner, a divorced father of two. “It’s a highly curated crowd.”Fashion student Katie*, a Mormon raised in Utah, does more than just watch. The 22-year-old came with a 31-year-old Tinder date, but after he fails to rise to the occasion in a foursome, she goes looking for hotter prospects.“It’s great, but a little overwhelming,” the pretty brunette, clad in a black thong, garter belt and Wolford lace stockings, tells The Post as she surveys the room. “It’s a very sexy crowd.”Lawner describes the New York men who made the cut as “masters of the universe.” Certainly, Wall Street is well-represented, as is the tech industry. There are no recognizable celebrities, but there are around 25 relatively attractive 20- to 60-something males sharply dressed in tuxedos.Modal TriggerMatthew McDermottThe 75 women, meanwhile, range in age from early 20s to mid-40s. Slightly more filled-out than their LA peers — we’re talking an average size 4 in New York, compared to a half-starved size 0 on the West Coast — they channel the movie “Eyes Wide Shut,” wearing designer lingerie and heels. Unlike the beautiful people of the Golden State, they don’t all look camera-ready for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. But most are well-manicured and immaculately coiffed, although one girl has (gasp!) a little muffin top going on.Black is the favored color. A woman in her early 40s — surgically enhanced with long black hair extensions — stands out in a virginal all-white number made up of a bustier, thong and garter. Perhaps it’s her wedding night.She is mesmerized by an opening show set to deep house music in which a priestlike man in a golden mask has sex with a woman clad in a tight PVC skirt with a conveniently placed zipper. Just feet away from the guests, another performer is simultaneously using a sex toy on Ms. PVC.Later in the evening, a similarly masked man leads, on a chain, a woman on all fours around the party. Dressed in a black G-string and cat ears, her breasts exposed under a sheer black cape, she playfully licks the legs of the women in the room.“I like to be a pet,” she purrs. “You can pet me.”‘It’s a very sexy crowd … I was expecting older, fatter men.’ – Katie, Snctm guestShe and four other extroverted performers and “fluffers” were specially flown in by Lawner from LA. Another seven are local to New York. According to the boss, their job is to “set the tone for a night of erotic freedom.”Katie certainly lets loose. By 3 a.m., she’s had sex with six people, including a threesome with a 50-something sugar daddy who possesses an enviable six-pack and his beautiful Latina “baby.”“I was expecting older, fatter men, to be honest, so I’m pleasantly surprised,” she says.Thanks to the sugar daddy, Katie secures tuition for her third year of college and a round-trip flight to Los Angeles. The sugar daddy wants her to come with him to the next Snctm party in Hollywood, set for the end of April. (Manhattan’s next event is May 13.)De la Kethulle surveys the room and declares the event a success.“People are actually having sex,” he says. “It’s nice that New Yorkers are having f

These are the 30 posh hotels where NYC places its homeless | New York Post

The city has used 30 Manhattan hotels to house the homeless, including the iconic New Yorker, the upscale Excelsior and the tourist-friendly The Manhattan at Times Square.Modal TriggerHoliday Inn Express at 126 Water St. where the city will start housing the homeless.. Helayne SeidmanThe city’s use of Manhattan hotels shot up 58 percent in the last year as bookings expanded from the outer boroughs to prime tourist destinations in Midtown and Soho.And the homeless lodging has reached beyond fleabag flophouses to boutique hotels and brand names sought by visitors who don’t necessarily want to mingle with the down-and-out.“We rode the elevator up to our room with homeless people who were barefoot,” one guest at the Art Deco New Yorker hotel griped on the site Trip Advisor in August.A total of 1,453 Manhattan hotel rooms were listed on the city’s “Shelter Scorecard” for February. The citywide average per room is $222 per day, including social services. The average cost per day at a shelter is $150.The city spent $72.9 million on hotel housing in the year ending Oct. 31, 2016, a report by Comptroller Scott Stringer says.“This is a massive crisis, and the city is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars — per night — on hotels. They’re ill-suited to help families get back on theirfeet, and they’re extraordinarily costly,” Stringer told The Post.The use of hotels for the homeless has climbed despite Mayor de Blasio’s pledge last year to end the practice after the stabbing death of a mother and her two children in a Staten Island hotel.SEE ALSO Homeless could get more hotels as de Blasio vows to get rid of themOn Friday, a Queens toddler was found unconscious inside a Quality Inn used as a family homeless shelter. Kimio Williams was pronounced dead at Elmhurst Hospital. No arrests have been made and no criminality is suspected, authorities said.There are now 7,500 homeless people staying in hotels throughout the city, up from 6,100 in October 2016 and 2,600 in February 2016. The total shelter population, including those in hotels, was 59,240 as of Thursday.De Blasio’s new plan to tackle the city’s homeless crisis calls for opening 90 new shelters and expanding others during the next five years in order to get people out of hotels and “cluster site” housing by 2023.But the plan has already hit roadblocks, with a judge last month temporarily halting the opening of a new men’s shelter in Crown Heights that is opposed by community residents.Social services at 16 of the Manhattan hotels are provided by Children’s Community Services (CCS), a Queens nonprofit that has amassed $19.3 million in current and pending city contracts in just two years.The nonprofit is headed by Thomas Bransky, whose bio says he used to work in his family’s Illinois hotel-management business. He loaned the organization $100,000 to get it started.Modal TriggerClarion Hotel on Park Ave. South., another hotel where the city will house the homeless .Helayne SeidmanModal TriggerInside the Clarion Hotel on Park Avenue.Helayne SeidmanBy July 2015, the group had a $1.9 million deficit, according to its financial filings. But two months later, it secured a $3 million contract to provide homeless housing in hotels, city records show. It now oversees hundreds of units.Bransky refused to talk to The Post, directing questions to the Department of Homeless Services.The nonprofit’s contract calls for using no more than 39 percent of a hotel’s rooms unless the city gives special permission, according to a copy obtained by The Post under a Freedom of Information Law request.The MAve Hotel on Madison Avenue is among those in Manhattan under CCS supervision. The Post revealed in October that the city was paying for rooms there at the sametime it was suing the property’s owner for operating “illegal” and dangerous rentals at Midtown apartment buildings.The hotel had nine open FDNY and building-code violations last month, according to the Shelter Scorecard. The document says all of the hotel’s 74 rooms were in use for the homeless, although the city insisted in October it was still a commercial hotel.The Frant Hotel on West 101st Street had the most open violations in Manhattan, with 62 last month.The city abruptly stopped using The New Yorker in early February. A manager there would not comment.“To address the citywide challenge of homelessness, we are ending the use of all 360 cluster sites and hotel facilities across the five boroughs. At the same time, we continue to review all our providers to ensure they meet the standards our clients deserve,” said DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn.

Inside the drug and sex ring in the middle of Times Square | New York Post

A gang runs an open-air drug-and-sex ring in the heart of Times Square, brazenly hawking cocaine, pot, pills and women to passers-by — all right in front of NYPD cops.Three times this month, ring members approached a Post reporter and asked if he wanted drugs or prostitutes, with one trying to lead him into an office building for sex with a hooker.Another offered a “happy ending” massage at an unnamed hotel nearby. A third said he would provide “free samples” of illegal drugs.

Modal TriggerIsa Karim, a leader of the Times Square gang.The ring has set up shop on Seventh Avenue between 48th and 49th streets in front of the bar Tonic and next to the Lace Gentleman’s Club, a strip joint.It was there that two young men with foreign accents tried to get the reporter to buy drugs or pay for sex with 20-something “ladies” they said were available. Each offer was made as patrol cops stood nearby or sat in a police van on the block.“Russian girls, Spanish,” gang member Junior said to the reporter.“Go to the hotel there,” he said and pointed up the block. “Happy ending. On the second floor. The girl come and meet you downstairs. Take you upstairs . . . Everything straight.”The cost: $250, Junior said. “Hotel room is included.”Another member claimed the ring had a room for illicit sex in a 10-story office building at 723 Seventh Ave., where one of its leaders, Isa Karim, 37, was arrested for allegedly slicing up a man in January, leaving a pool of blood on the sidewalk at the corner of 48th Street.It’s the same building where rapper Tupac Shakur got shot five times in 1994 but survived.But a security guard in the building said no such room exists.
ReutersHe said the gang lures in tourists with its offers, then takes their money and walks off.“These gentlemen, if you could call them that, are out there steering individuals,” a police source said. “There might be some drugs involved. There might be prostitution. Or they might be scamming.”A worker for a business on the block said the gang was a scourge.“We hate that they are out there,” the worker said.“I’m frustrated as hell. It’s epidemic. I think there about 15 to 20 guys. Most of them tend to be of African descent. From Africa. We let the cops know. They’re not oblivious.”Cops say they are doing all they can to stop the gang, making 128 arrests on the block in 2016, including 39 that were drug related, and an additional 22 busts so far this year.“We’re aware of it and conduct numerous arrests in that area,” Lt. John Grimpel said.He said that the Midtown North precinct, which covers that block, made 131 prostitution arrests in 2016 and 28 in 2017.

Sex ring pimped out mentally disabled young men: authorities | New York Post

For 20 years, a Connecticut-based prostitution ring trafficked in mentally disabled young men, court papers revealed this week.The ring catered to wealthy male clients in Connecticut and Massachusetts who paid $250 for sex, according to court papers cited in the News-Times.At least 15 young men in their early 20s were exploited in the ring, authorities allege.The young men suffered illnesses that include schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; some were severely disabled and living in group homes, authorities allege.The ring had been under investigation since January 2016; the first big break came last year with the arrest of Danbury resident Robert King, described by Connecticut prosecutors as running the operation.King would befriend vulnerable young men, including one he found rummaging through a dumpster, according to court papers cited by the News-Times.He would then allegedly get them hooked on cocaine and heroin, pushing them to prostitute themselves to pay for their mounting drug debts.“I’m just a gay guy trying to help people,” King claimed to Danbury detectives, when they approached him in August 2016, according to one affidavit.King has been charged with prostitution and witness tampering.Two alleged clients have been arrested and charged with patronizing a trafficked person.One, Bruce J. Bemer, of Glastonbury, is the owner of the Waterford Speedbowl and New England Motor Sports. He allegedly told authorities that King had been sending young men to him for sex for more than 20 years.

Private Planes, Black Tie Parties, Elite Sporting Events: The Shocking Story of One Woman’s Life in Sex Trafficking | Dr. Phil

Kendall claims she was sold by her parents at birth to a powerful international sex trafficker. She says when she wasn’t locked in a cage with other kidnapped children, she was flown all over the world on private planes, being sold to wealthy and powerful men. Kendall says as she grew older, she would often escort these rich and prominent clients to black tie affairs and high profile sporting events. From doctors and politicians to even law enforcement, Kendall says she was taught how to act and dress in order to never raise suspicion. For the first time since she says she left her life of sex trafficking three years ago, Kendall tells her story and explains why she is still petrified that the boss of this operation, whom she calls “the man who owns her,” will find her and bring her back.

Shake up causes drama at Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze | Page Six

Tomi Lahren won’t be appearing on Glenn Beck’s multiplatform network, TheBlaze, anymore.Sources say Lahren — who was suspended last week after flip-flopping on abortion and declaring herself pro-choice — has been banned permanently.“Glenn is reminding the world of his conservative principles by sidelining Tomi after she insulted conservatives by calling them hypocrites,” one Beck insider told me.Fans think Beck — once a big Ted Cruz backer — has lost his conservative bona fides. He went on Samantha Bee’s TBS show in December and apologized for being divisive in the past.“He’s trying to balance being a leading conservative thinker and also someone who can unify the country,” the Beck associate told me. “He just couldn’t sit by and watch as Tomi Lahren said there’s no way for conservatives to justify anything other than being pro-choice.”“Beck’s trying to reinvent himself,” a former insider told me. “But he’s burned too many bridges.”TheBlaze, founded seven years ago in Dallas, once had offices in New York and 300 employees. Now, the New York office is closed and the staff is half that size.While the number of paying subscribers (once said to be 300,000) is kept secret, TheBlaze.com attracted 29 million unique visitors per month in 2014, and only 8.8 million uniques in February 2017, for a loss of more than two-thirds of its traffic.Jerry Del Colliano, founder of Inside Radio, said Beck’s syndicated talk radio show has slipped as well from No. 3 to No. 5.“Beck has lost his mojo, and TheBlaze helped him lose it,” Del Colliano said. “It’s hard to figure out where he is coming from.”

One killed, over a dozen shot in Cincinnati club shooting | New York Post

CINCINNATI — At least two people opened fire inside a crowded nightclub early Sunday morning, killing one person and wounding more than a dozen others.Police said there is no indication the shooting at the Cameo club was terrorism related. Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate said the motive is still unclear, however. Authorities also didn’t immediately have any suspects in the 1:30 a.m. shooting on a busy weekend night.Capt. Kim Williams said there was “just a lot of chaos, obviously, when shots were fired.”“Saturday night, it is a very young crowd. We have had incidents here in the past, but this is by far the worst,” she said.Several officers were working security detail at the club and performed first aid and tried to revive the person who died, Williams said.Fifteen people were shot. Some of them drove themselves to area hospitals and others were taken by ambulance.Authorities are interviewing several witnesses, but Williams said a lot of the club goers had left.“The biggest problem when you have a large crowd like this and the shots ring out, a lot of the witnesses disappear,” she said.Authorities were asking anyone with information to come forward. Williams said investigators are checking to see if surveillance cameras were working.WLWT reported that at least one person was in critical condition at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Witches to cast spell on Trump … again!

WASHINGTON – Among the angry liberals who refuse to accept the 2016 presidential election results that put Donald Trump in the Oval Office are witches who will be gathering at midnight on Sunday to cast spells.Again.They already tried last month to conjure up magic to remove him from office.Witches, exorcists and occultists say they again will cast a “binding spell” designed to “bind Donald Trump and all who abet him.”Anti-Trump occultists performed the “mass spell” against the president last month under the hashtag #BindTrump. Witches nationwide shared photos and videos on Twitter of them placing their hex on Trump.They say they will repeat the ritual on March 26 and on every crescent moon “until Donald Trump is removed from office,” according to the group’s Facebook page.
Arm yourself for the most crucial battle of all. “Spiritual Warfare” is available now at the WND Superstore.

Those participating in the spell are asked to burn a picture of the commander in chief and visualize him “blowing apart into dust or ash.”

The spell also requires an unflattering photo of Trump, a tarot card, a tiny stub of an orange candle, a pin or small nail, water, salt, a feather and an ashtray and to calls on spirits to ensure President Trump will “fail utterly.”

There is even a Facebook page networking those who want to participate in the ritual.

One of the participating groups, with members donning crushed-velvet cloaks and false eyelashes, is Witches Against Fascist Totalitarianism.

Slate reported one event featured “metallic ovary temporary tattoos,” smudge sticks, “cleansings” and “witchy jewelry.”

Prior to winning the presidency, occultists tried to use black magic against Trump.

The far-left publication Jezebel published a story in September 2015 about “Brooklyn Witches” cursing Trump because they “wholeheartedly believe that Trump and the rest of the GOP are garbage.”

The women performed a series of curses on the then-Republican presidential candidate and recorded footage of the rituals. The spells including a hex to silence him, another to protect people of color from his evil and a hair-loss curse.

“Even if the hexes don’t work,” a witch named Yeni told Jezebel, “the video shows Mexicans that they’ve got plenty of good people on their side.”

But Trump’s election victory seems to deny the power of the curses and black magic, observers noted.

When the rituals were held a month ago, WND reported Christian leaders believe these kinds of spiritual threats should be taken seriously, condemned and countered.

Extraordinary events predicted centuries in advance are unfolding now. Here is your guide to the incredible prophecies being fulfilled before our very eyes. Don’t miss the bestselling sensation from one of America’s most prolific and beloved pastors. “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time” by Carl Gallups, available now in the WND Superstore.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries said the left’s open embrace of demonic imagery is revealing.

“It shows that the level of hatred against Donald Trump is generated by Satan himself,” she said. “Donald Trump is not a perfect man. But he is trying to stop the runaway freight train of evil that has existed for eight years emanating out of Washington and the Democratic Party.

“The left is mesmerized by issues that tear down and that grieve the heart of God. Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to neutralize these people and their agenda, but he is trying to make significant inroads to stop the tremendous slide to the dark side in America. He has some solid Bible-believing Christians at his side. Together they can make a huge difference and repair some of the damage done by evildoers.”

Pastor Mark Biltz of El Shaddai Ministries, author of “God’s Day Timer,” cited Deuteronomy 18:10-12 to argue those who use occult practices are an “abomination” in God’s sight, according to the Scriptures. He agreed with Markell that such practices are becoming increasingly common.

“We are living at the time of the coming of the Messiah,” he warned. “The world will be getting worse until Messiah’s return. We are to always pray for those who are our leaders. Not only should Christians pray, but they should get actively involved.”

Pastors such as Carl Gallups, author of “When the Lion Roars,” urge Christians to join the effort.

“America’s born again believers should cover President Trump in prayer,” Gallups said. “It’s obvious that the demonic realm is stirred by his presence. It’s also obvious that the antichrist agenda of the globalist community is going berserk over a Trump presidency. These are simply signs to those of us who know God’s word that President Trump is being used by the Lord in these prophetic times. Pray for him. Pray for our nation. And, then, get on with the work of the Kingdom.”
Karl Payne, the former chaplain of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks and an expert in exorcism who penned “Spiritual Warfare” as a guide for Christians dealing with unseen forces, denounced those behind the spiritual attack on Trump as “so ideologically driven, they do not see straight.”

But he also warned occult forces are being increasingly normalized in popular culture through an anti-Christian media.

“It is not possible to watch major television stations, cable stations or movies without being inundated with shows and movies on the paranormal,” he said. “To think that the constant exposure to these types of shows will not have an impact on those watching them is as naïve as it is to believe people can watch and play hours of video games glorifying murder and mayhem and it not make an indelible impact on their minds.”

Pastor: Ex-hookers’ anointed cake turned gay man straight | New York Post

A Texas pastor claims an “anointed cake” baked by hookers had the power to turn a gay bar owner straight.In a rambling Periscope video, Lance Wallnau, who is an evangelist from Dallas, responded to a viewer’s request for deliverance for her gay son.Wallnau, who has 200,000 Facebook followers, said last week that he heard a story about the gay and “very adamantly anti-Christian” man who owned the bar.According to Wallnau, the bar was frequented by reformed hookers, who decided to bake a cake for the owner.“They basically prayed over the cake,” he said. “It was an anointed cake.”Before the owner could finish eating the cake, he had undergone a transformative experience.
“The power of God hit him while he was eating the cake,” Wallnau said.The pastor told viewers that the man was baptized and ultimately the “spirit that was working him got broken off.”However, he admitted that an anointed cake might not be the answer for everyone.“This is crazy,” he said. “Now, I’m not saying this is going to work for you.”The “God’s Chaos Candidate” author has made some controversial claims before. Last month, he said that the media used “mind control and witch craft,” according to Right Wing Watch.He has also claimed that President Trump’s victory was a “manifestation of an enraged demon through the populace.”

L.A. Theater Provides Barf Bags for Cannibal Movie ‘Raw’ | Hollywood Reporter

The intense French thriller follows a young girl who gets an all-consuming appetite for human flesh.Moviegoers nauseated by French director’s Julia Ducournau’s cannibal-infused Raw don’t need to worry about throwing up in their popcorn bags — at least at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.The cinema is offering custom-made barf bags to customers before the movie begins playing. An usher hands out the bags after explaining that, due to the graphic gore in the movie, several viewers have fainted, while at least one person vomited.”One of the staff at the Nuart took up the initiative to make the barf bags out of paper lunch bags. What a fun idea! I remember that used to be done with some horror releases in the 1970s,” said Mark Valen, a film buyer with Landmark Theatres and who also programs the Nuart.It isn’t the first time people have responded in such fashion. There were also fainting and vomiting when the French thriller made the rounds on the festival circuit.Raw, about a young girl who develops an all-consuming appetite for human flesh, made its world premiere at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival before playing at other fests, including Toronto. Focus World picked up rights to the movie following Cannes.”Marking the feature debut of French director Julia Ducournau, who leads a terrific young cast into a maelstrom of blood, guts and unfettered sexual awakening, this Cannes Critics’ Week selection should become a hot potato (or is that a meatball?) at the market while propelling its talented creator into the spotlight,” The Hollywood Reporter’s review said of the movie. Adding to the gore factor is the fact that the film is set at a Gallic veterinary college.Raw, which opened in select theaters earlier this month, has grossed $78,000 to date from nine cinemas.
