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

Published

on

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.

Save conservative media!

Rashida Tlaib Seals Victory In Michigan Democratic House Primary

Published

on

Well, it’s looking likely everyone’s favorite “Squad” of anti-Semitic starlets in the House will be reunited for another go at Congress as Rep. Rashida Tlaib won the Michigan Democratic House primary race. Tlaib is gunning for a second term representing Michigan’s 13th congressional district. She defeated Detroit City Council President Brenda Jones. Here’s more information via The Washington Examiner: Their election was defined by the issues of race and her resource monopoly compared to Jones. Tlaib’s victory was a surprise given the record number of black Detroit voters who mailed in their ballots to officials ahead of the Aug. 4 primary. Tlaib and Jones first met in the 2018 special election to replace the late Rep. John Conyers. Conyers had resigned over sexual misconduct accusations at the height of the #MeToo movement. Jones won the four-way special election before Tlaib clinched victory by fewer than 1,000 votes five weeks later. The second contest was against a more crowded six-way field for the longer stint in Washington. All four of their former general election rivals backed Jones, a 15-year councilor. Polling was sparse throughout the race, but a Target-Insyght poll late last month had Tlaib in front, 53% to 24% . The Palestinian-American, who along with Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar was one of the first two Muslim women to win seats in Congress, was leading in the cash stakes. She raised $2.9 million, in contrast to Jones’ $140,000 in July. Jones was disadvantaged after contracting COVID-19 as well. If there’s two people this country could stand to see less of, it’s Tlaib and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Unfortunately, despite all of their anti-Semitic remarks poor decision making, they will probably win second terms. Try not to hurt yourself jumping with joy.

Biden Delivers Bizarre Interview; Walks Back Claims On Cognitive Tests, Rambles On About ‘Cocaine’

Published

on

Over the last year or so, there’s been a lot of speculation that Joe Biden’s mental health is in serious decline. He’s lost his train of thought in the middle of a sentence on numerous occasions, needed to have questions repeated, rambled incoherently, forgotten parts of the Declaration of Independence, and much more. Do we really want a guy like that in the White House? Of course not. But the left is moving full steam ahead with him as their candidate anyway. Biden recently gave a very strange interview in which he walked back previous claims of taking cognitive tests and rambled on about cocaine. You just have to to see this for yourself. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “Have you taken a cognitive test?” CBS News correspondent Errol Barnett asked. “No, I haven’t taken a test,” Biden shot back. “Why the hell would I take a test? Come on man, that’s like saying, you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?” “What do you say to President Trump, who brags about his test and makes your mental state an issue for voters?” the host pressed as Biden laughed. “Well, if he can’t figure out the difference between an elephant and lion, I don’t know what the hell he’s talking about,” Biden responded. “Did you watch that, look, come on man, I, I, I know you’re trying to goad me, but I mean I’m so forward looking to have an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president and debates. There gonna be plenty of time, and by the way, as I joke with’em, you know, I, I shouldn’t say it. I’m going to say something, I…
