Skip to comments.De Blasio’s performance grows worse by the day, making NYC unlivable

The New York that survived 9/11 and bounced back stronger than ever is now being brought to its knees. The coronavirus, the economic shutdowns and the frequent street protests, mixed with pillaging and vandalism, are no ordinary hurdles, but they are surmountable with courageous leadership.
The problems are many, but the linchpin is Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose performance grows worse by the day. There is nothing endearing about his act, only a long list of examples of how little he cares.
And how little he does. New York has had its share of corrupt and incompetent mayors, but never has it had one who is both of those and also a lazy bum.
With restaurants wanting to know the rules for reopening, de Blasio diddled until the last minute. Their survival was at stake, but he couldnt be bothered.
Whats the plan for schools in the fall? Good question, but dont ask the mayor. He hasnt gotten around to that yet.
Besides, the issue only involves a million students, their families, teachers, coaches, principals and administrators. They must wait for the chief political popinjay to bestir himself.
Crime is soaring murder is up 25 percent and de Blasio responds by vowing to cut the police budget.
The aim is not to do more with less. It is to get the cops to do less. This is a death wish.
For weeks, illegal fireworks have exploded through the night, and a 3-year-old Bronx boy is among the injured innocents. Thousands of complaints pour in, to which the mayor shrugs and says cops and firefighters have many other things to do.
Police are quitting in droves, and nobody should blame them. Would you risk your life to enforce the law under this mayor?

Fundamentally his mindset is that of a crook.....
all they can do is tear down the world around them
We need to show up to vote democrats out in November.
Our purity test for truly Conservative Republicans needs to happen in the primaries. In November our only choice is at least two more years of this, or Republican.
The turnout the the Kaiser’s last election was ridiculously low, in the mid teens, IIRC.
Was the turnout really that low, or have the ‘Rats figured out that deleting is a lot easier than padding the vote..?
NYC, you picked this guy to run your city.....to the ground.
NYC been lurching towards unlivable since Rudy left office. Bloomberg was the baby step towards DeCommio. Worse, the demographics of the city now guarantee there will never be another Rudy.
I just couldn’t care less anymore about whatever the hell happens in Marxocrat World and Woke City USA all across this benighted land. In every one of these schittholes the people living in them have voted for every sort of Marxocrat crook, scumbag, and pervert that ran for political office time and time again for generations. They all wanted this. Well, now they have it. Let them live with it. We need to figure out how to cordon their cesspools off and let them all wallow in their self-created schittholes. Let’s not just defund the police, let’s defund their entire operations altogether from getting any more of the money from outstate cities and towns. And get the federal government out of funding them, too.
Don’t mind the maggots.
When people in the cities get hungry, they will come out to eat the animals and even humans.
God help us...Amen
The good part about civil breakdown in cities is the D’s will kill other D’s.
As you sow, so shall you reap.
“NYC been lurching towards ‘unlivable’ since Rudy left office.”
Trump should appoint Rudy as Czar to handle the riots and destruction of our monuments.
This year’s WuFlu deaths alone in NYC wiped out the city’s population gain for 2019.
Seriously, New York City can go F itself. After years of law and order and prosperity under Rudy Guiliani these idiots voted in an avowed Marxist who of course quickly tore down everything that Rudy accomplished.
Unfortunately those New Yorkers who can afford to are going to move out of their newly re-established s**t-hole and bring their Marxist politics with them wherever they go. I wish we could put up an ideological quarantine around the island of Manhattan.
NYC is a cesspool and it was just a matter of time before it collapsed. Anyone who isn’t a psychotic D should be looking for greener pastures. The Ds can stay put.
