John Bailey, White Plains CitizeNetReporter ( Publisher / Editor opens the broadcast day at 10am, concluding at 10:30am.  

  1. John Bailey’s discovery of the Peekskill, NY establishment known as the  26-years old establishment, the Bruised Apple Bookstore located in Peekskill, NY, its Manager Andrew Acciaro, and its 50,000 books located in Peekskill, NY. We inquire what the lure of a book is over reading a book online. Are books making a comeback or is the interest in reading books a passion of the baby boomer generation and less so by the younger generation?
  2. The long-awaited second 55 Bank Street tower of The Continuum project by LCOR, a Cappelli Enterprises project jas begun and is expected to be completer with a year. The apartment building will be 20-stories high. e inquire why there was a one-year delay getting started. apparently has begun construction on the second 20-story apartments. It is expected to be completed in a year.
  3. New York State became the first in the nation to ban electronic cigarettes, and the sale of flavored and menthol flavored electronic cigarettes. Why has society given a blind eye to the addictive concerns of nicotine and its health ramifications. Some people are known to add vitamin E, and marijuana, which has caused deleterious lung issues. Are lobbyists the scourge of this cigarette health debacle then and now? We now have a new generation of addicts. Why has society or was is it government, that has permitted this outcome?
  4. Altice-Optimum is promising refunds to its customers who lost service Friday, September 6, 2019 according to a recent customer outreach notice. Why was government silent for over two weeks on this issue? Why did Altice-Optimum only advise of a refund but did not address the core concern, that is what happened, why did it happened, what caused it, and is the issue corrected and there is no need or concern that it may have been caused by some nefarious people/governments? 

Michael Edelman, Esq., Political Analyst, attends the broadcast from 10:30-11am

  1. President Trump has approved U.S. troop deployment and missile defense equipment to Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates in response to the missile attack in Saudi Arabia that caused a 50 percent reduction of Saudi oil production capacity, The attack was initially claimed by Houthis operating from Yemen. Saudis now claim the missiles were Iranian. Is Trump’s a reaction to the success of the sale of S-400 missiles installed in Turkey, the S-300 missiles installed in Syria, and Putin’s ridicule of U.S. technology for not having the capacity to protect the Abqaiq refinery facility, the basis for Trump’s response for deploying troops to protect Saudi Arabia and the UAE?
  2. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), House Intelligence Committee Chair, on Thursday released two letters regarding a whistleblower complaint that administration officials are withholding from Congress. The complaint includes details of a “promise” President Donald Trump made to a foreign leader. Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire decided not to forward the complaint to Congress after consulting with the Department of Justice. In the letters, Inspector General Michael Atkinson, the internal watchdog for the intelligence community, details his concerns and states he believes the complaint being kept from Congress is both urgent and “relates to one of the most important and significant of the (Director of National Intelligence)’s responsibilities to the American people.” the allegations involve Trump’s communications with a foreign leader, centering on Ukraine President Vlodoymyr Zelensky, on Juy 25, two and a half weeks before the complaint was filed. Pres. Trump his conversation with Zelensky was “perfectly fine and respectful conversation … There was nothing said wrong, it was pitch perfect!” The Washington Post and the New York Times reported earlier this year that Trump’s personal lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani pressed President Zelensky’s government to investigate the involvement of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, in a gas company owned by a Ukrainian oligarch. On CNN last Thursday Giuliani first denied asking Ukraine to investigate Hunter Biden, before seconds thereafter saying:”Of course, I did!”  The Trump Administration is suggesting in most adamant terms that a sitting president cannot be prosecuted while serving in office. This is the same rationale expressed by President Richard Nixon failed legal argument since no one in America is said to be above the law. The ramifications are huge. Will impeachment efforts be ratcheted before next year’s elections based upon this alleged revelation? 
  3. Israel Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu’s second place showing in the second election attempt within 5 months to form a coalition government has diminished the veteran Likud leader at home and abroad. A three-peat is not desired by the Israeli electorate. How with this outcome play out? Will Israel President Reuven Rivlin ask Blue and White Party Leader Benny Gantz to form the next government? 
  4. A CNN / Des Moines Register poll is revealing that Warren (22%) is surging in Iowa, ahead of Biden (20%), while Bernie is down to 11 percent? We delve into the numb ears and if they are revealing a trajectory of some sort?

Hezi Aris, Yonkers Tribune Editor-at-Large delves into hyperlocal, city, county, state, national, and international issues with commensurate analysis. This segment from 11am-12Noon.
