NY Congressman Is Calling For Mayor Bill De Blasio To Be Booted From Office

Published

It seems NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio is not a popular fellow among many of the individuals in the state government, as Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican, is wanting to see him removed from office over his egregious failures in leading the Big Apple.

The straw that apparently broke the camel’s back comes from the recent surge in crime that is sweeping across the city, largely probably due to the fact he’s done nothing to reign in the madness caused by the Black Lives Matter movement that has done a fairly good job of spreading chaos and violence all over the country, especially in large urban centers.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

An increase in shootings and crime in general has plagued New York City so far in 2020, specifically in the weeks and months since the death of George Floyd on May 25. His death sparked protests, both peaceful and violent, on New York streets and in other cities.

More than 100 people were injured by 83 shootings during a nine-day time period from June 19-27 in New York City, and at least six of those victims died.

Last week, at least 14 people were shot in 10 shootings during a nine-hour period in the city, resulting in one death.

With increasing crime, it seems like now would be a pretty horrible time to cut the funding to the local police department, especially with the relationship between NYPD and the mayor’s office being strained. Yet, that’s exactly what de Blasio did. He slashed their budget by $1 billion.

Oh and the city also got rid of its plainclothes anti-crime unit as of June 15. This move is part of their capitulation to the leftist mob that is Black Lives Matter and the demands they’ve set out in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of law enforcement officers in Minneapolis.

Many individuals have criticized the move, stating it’s directly caused the increase in the shootings the city is dealing with.

To give you a picture of just how bad things have gotten, shootings in the city have increased 205 percent between June 15 and July 2 compared to that same time period last year.

That’s massive.

Perhaps it is time for NYC to try a different approach to the problems facing the city and dump the poor Democratic leadership? Just a thought.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
