    The best thing Bill de Blasio has ever done in his life was when he dropped out of the 2020 presidential race.* He stayed in just long enough to inspire the best political heckle of our time -- "Come clean my roof, you monster" -- and then he went crawling back to New York. But America's gain was NYC's loss. Now they have to put up with him full-time. They hate his guts, and they never miss an opportunity to let him know. Rich Calder, Elizabeth Rosner and Natalie Musumeci, NY Post: Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and jeered...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., on Saturday gave her backing to a New York City anti-police protest, in which demonstrators jumped subway turnstiles and yelled anti-cop slogans to protest a crackdown on fare evasion and allegations of police brutality. “Ending mass incarceration means challenging a system that jails the poor to free the rich,” the left-wing freshman congresswoman tweeted, retweeting a video of protesters jumping subway turnstiles in Brooklyn Friday night. "Arresting people who can’t afford a $2.75 fare makes no one safer and destabilizes our community." "New Yorkers know that, they’re not having it, and they’re standing up for each...
  • De Blasio, Cuomo show sneering hostility as Trump leaves New York

    In the tweet confirming he switched his official residency from New York to Florida, President Trump said, “Despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state.” As if on cue, those leaders instantly proved his point. “Good riddance,” thundered Gov. Cuomo. “Don’t let the door hit you on your way out,” chimed in Mayor de Blasio. Their sneering hostility is yet another example of how Cuomo and de Blasio are failing to take advantage of having...

"Good riddance. It's not like Mr. Trump paid taxes here anyway," Cuomo said in statement. "He's all yours, Florida...”
  • Brooklyn anti-cop protest turns violent, blocks traffic: 'Don't let these pigs touch us'

    Close to a thousand anti-police protesters descended on Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, blocking traffic, vandalizing a city bus and shouting obscene insults at NYPD cops. The demonstration formed soon after 7 p.m. on the streets near the Barclays Center, with protesters unfurling large banners that read “— the police” and “Don’t let these pigs touch us.” The crowd began dispersing by 9 p.m. The demonstration was in response to a planned crackdown on fare evasion by the NYPD — and two controversial police actions in Brooklyn subway stations in recent weeks. In one of the incidents, an NYPD cop sent...

    Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets in Brooklyn on Friday night to protest police violence after a teen was seen in a viral video being punched by an officer in a subway brawl. Video of the incident posted on social media showed an altercation breaking out on a subway platform in Brooklyn late last week, with an officer seen punching 15-year-old Benjamin Marshall. Marshall and his parents say he was not part of the fight and was instead looking for his backpack on the platform when he was punched. Protesters responded by swarming streets in Brooklyn on Friday night,...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) on Thursday questioned the details surrounding the death of billionaire financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, saying, “Something doesn’t fit here.” “It just doesn’t make sense that the highest-profile prisoner in America, you know, someone forgot to guard him,” de Blasio told reporters, Politico reports. “I want to understand, I think everyone wants to understand, what really happened.” He added: “I just don’t know what the nature of the death was. I just know it should never have happened, and we still don’t have good answers.” De Blasio’s comments come a...

    Previously directed detail to help his daughter move New York mayor and failed presidential candidate Bill de Blasio ordered his New York police security detail to drive his son to Yale University on multiple occasions. The New York Police Department detail transported Dante de Blasio to and from school seven or eight different times during his freshman year, and also took him to visit his uncle who lives near the school, according to the New York Daily News. A former member of the security said the decision had little to do with the younger de Blasio's safety. "There was no...

    The sale of foie gras looks set to become illegal in New York City with city council members expected to pass a bill on Wednesday that bans the sale of the fattened liver of a duck or goose at restaurants and grocery stores. Under the bill, vendors and restaurateurs caught selling the French delicacy could be slapped with a $1000 fine and a year behind bars. Animal welfare advocates have long supported banning the sale of foie gras, claiming the practice of force-feeding a bird by sticking a tube down its throat is inhumane. However, farmers who produce the specialty...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t “understand how on earth” a German porn star got deep inside sensitive areas of NYPD headquarters, he said Thursday, as an NYPD boss vowed to find answers. “I’ve only heard the beginning of this, and I don’t like what I hear,” fumed Hizzoner of Annina Ucatis’ private tour of the Lower Manhattan cop shop — first reported by The Post — where she was free to film inside the clandestine Real Time Crime Center, and even outside Commissioner James O’Neill’s office. “I don’t understand how on earth this could have happened,” continued de Blasio of...

    Thursday, the New York City Council will vote on the latest proposal to close the centralized detention facilities on Rikers Island and replace them with a borough-based jail system. The baseline estimate of how many inmates that system will be expected to accommodate by 2026 was recently revised down to just 3,544 — about half of its population today. When one considers (1) the seriousness of the charges most city jail inmates are facing, (2) the level of violence those inmates engage in behind bars and (3) the potential for future crime increases, one thing becomes crystal clear: There is...

    “We’re a little upset that Mother Cabrini wasn’t included for a statue dedication,” the Diocese’s Monsignor Jamie Gigantiello told The Post. “If the city won’t honor Mother Cabrini, we will will honor her.” ..." "a group controlled by [Chirlane] McCray [New York mayor De Blasio's wife] passed over Cabrini in favor of seven other women. Now she will be front and center at Manhattan’s Columbus Day Parade, with her float replacing one that typically promotes Catholic education. It will be two or three car-lengths long and include 40 to 50 kids and adults — with more walking alongside it.

    The latest push by the Left-wing Communists in the Garbage Party to destabilize our cities and our country is to attack law enforcement on the local level. That means electing “progressives” to the position of mayor and prosecuting attorney while attempting to get similar people hired on as police chiefs. The effort is already paying dividends. Big cities from coast-to-coast are experiencing record disrespect for the law as well as the law enforcers — the men and women who occupy the thin blue line between civil society and total chaos.

    “30 Rock” star Alec Baldwin was hustled by a fake Statue of Liberty tour operator while out sightseeing with his wife, Hilaria, and their kids. Baldwin said in an Instagram post that the family shelled out more than $40 per ticket for a tour of Liberty Island — but instead found themselves being escorted toward a bus bound for New Jersey. “I kid you not. We paid. Then we read the tickets,” he raged in the post. “NO ON [sic] EVER MENTIONED NEW F***ING JERSEY!!!” -snip Bogus ticket sellers have hawked scam passes near Battery Park for years.

    Now that socialist Bill de Blasio is washed out of the Democratic presidential election primaries, he's back to running New York City, doing the Sandinista thing , and banning free speech. The New York Post has identified his latest bid to make New York Cuba : It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate. The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released...
