Citizens Union, a left-wing government group, dropped their support for Socialist Julie Salazar over “incorrect information” in her bio. It turns out she didn’t graduate from Columbia University as her bio implied. She has lied about just about everything in her bio from her immigration status to her race to her religion.
She said she was a Jewish immigrant from Colombia but she was born in Miami and is not Jewish. She was arrested for theft once and left all that out of her bio.
It turns out she also lied about graduating from Columbia University. She didn’t graduate and “regrets the error.”
Salazar’s campaign materials had implied she graduated from Columbia University, but when questioned by the New York Times, she said she had completed her coursework but never graduated.
During her time at Columbia, Salazar — now running as a progressive Democrat of Jewish faith who supports abortion rights and the people of Palestine — was a Christian right-to-life activist who supported Israel.
While she had campaigned as a Colombian immigrant, she was born in the United States to an American mother and Colombian father.
Her statements about a working-class upbringing have also been called into question by statements from her brother and mother who said the family did not struggle financially.
In fact, the family owned a home next door to Mets legend Keith Hernandez — and Salazar was embroiled in a bizarre legal battle with the ballplayer and his ex-wife that included a claim of an affair, which Salazar has denied, and a libel lawsuit involving accusations of drug use, bank theft and pilfered Pottery Barn vouchers.

Welcome from Long Island, New York!
We want to present the news that the mainstream tends to ignore from a right-of-center perspective.
I’m an ex-liberal and am amazed at all I didn’t know when I was a liberal, like: the Constitution isn’t a “living” document; giving out endless welfare checks is a bad idea; pity for prisoners is better spent on the victims of their crimes; guns aren’t evil but people are; free speech matters more than I knew which is why PC needs to be obliterated ASAP; women can be evil too; big government doesn’t do a good job.
Kumbaya, We Are the World, It Takes a Village, and anything even remotely resembling those concepts are now out of my head unless I’m using them to make fun of somebody; war is necessary when under attack; socialism and communism have absolutely no redeeming qualities as systems of government; Carter wasn’t a good president and Reagan was, Green should go back to being a color.
Independent blogs like this one provide an opportunity for common folk to battle the corrupted mainstream media in a search for truth. We are searching, always searching…
We research and are as factual as possible and provide links to sources though commentary is commentary. If we make a mistake, we correct it.
I have published educational articles, short stories for children and was a copy editor for This Week Magazine. I have a B.A. in English Literature and masters degrees in Education, Secondary Education and Administration. For 33 years, I worked in education as a teacher of English and later, Special Education, and spent years as an elementary principal, secondary principal and central office administrator.
The name Sara Noble is a nom de plume. There are a few reasons for the nom de plume and included in those is the fact that many of my family members are liberals and don’t want their last name out there on a center-right blog. I started out with the pseudonym and just kept it. It’s a family name.
Pity me, I’m surrounded by liberals and I live in New York.
