    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...
  • GOP candidate: De Blasio should use his given German name

    GOP mayoral candidate Nicole Malliotakis mocked Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday, saying he should go back to using his given German name after his refusal to defend statues of Italian explorer Christopher Columbus. She made her point while standing under the explorer’s statue in Columbus Circle, which has become the focal point of a cultural battle after Hizzoner said he’d appoint a commission to recommend hateful city monuments for removal. “I really think Bill de Blasio should go back to using his birth name of Warren Wilhelm, because he obviously doesn’t have the heart and soul of an Italian,’’...
  • NYPD officers snub ‘Red Bill’ de Blasio at funeral for slain cop

    A huge group of New York City Police Department officers turned their backs on “Red Bill” de Blasio as the city mayor delivered remarks at the funeral of slain officer Miosotis Familia. Familia was assassinated in the Bronx last week by a man with a heavy criminal record. A lifelong public servant, she spent 13 years as an NYPD officer. Before that, she worked as a nurse at NYU Hospital and as a medical assistant for the American Red Cross. Instead of attending Familia’s vigil, de Blasio jetted off to Hamburg, Germany. There, he addressed a radical leftist extremist protest...

    Cops once again turned their backs on Mayor de Blasio at a police funeral. Scores of officers who assembled for assassinated police officer Miosotis Familia on Tuesday showed Hizzoner their backs during the mayor’s eulogy — a move reminiscent of the funeral for slain officer Wenjian Liu in 2015. --SNIP-- The protest comes after de Blasio skipped town for Germany Thursday — the day after Familia was assassinated by cop-hating gunman Alexander Bonds.

    Remember when New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio hopped on a jet and took off to Germany right when the city was in mourning over the assassination of yet another police officer? To say that this was a political misstep is the definition of an understatement, but the fallout of that stunt isn’t quite over yet. Some people are raising the awkward question of precisely who paid for that little public relations disaster. As you could probably have guessed without my telling you, it was the taxpayers of New York City. But fear not, citizens! The New York City...

    Mayor de Blasio made a surprise departure from New York City yesterday—just one day after the assassination of NYPD officer Miosotis Familia while she guarded a violence-plagued Bronx corner—in order to attend anti-capitalist protests in Hamburg, site of the G-20 summit. A few hours after de Blasio’s plane departed, a train derailed in Penn Station, where extensive track work is scheduled to begin this weekend. It was the third derailment at Penn since March; the incidents have become so commonplace that New Jersey Transit commuters reportedly showed little surprise when their train car slid off the track. The mayor has...

    Facing widespread criticism over his decision to fly to Hamburg just after the shooting death of a Bronx police officer, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Americans’ views don’t align with President Trump’s and need to be represented abroad. While the national governments will probably only make limited progress, the rest of us don’t have that choice. If we make only limited progress we’ll only be going backwards,” de Blasio told Bloomberg before speaking at a Saturday protest that coincides with the Group of 20 summit attended by Trump and other world leaders in Germany. “We almost have Washington as an...

    President Trump and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio were both overseas this week, within a few miles of each other. In fact, the President and the mayor were in Hamburg, Germany for the same exact event. Yet the contrast could not be starker. After a very successful trip to Poland, President Trump is tending to state business of the highest order at the G-20 summit in Hamburg. Despite the countless violent, rogue and lawless protesters, the President is moving our country’s agenda forward at the summit, as he temporarily leaves behind an America that is in far better...

    The evolution of the Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City this month, as well as Mayor Bill de Blasio’s position on it, has come full circle. The original decision to honor convicted FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera as a hero of the people or whatever honorific they had in mind immediately sent sponsors scurrying and resulted in many prominent figures refusing to march with him. Not the Mayor, however, who claimed to understand the nuances of the situation, even though he “disagreed” with some of the things the bomb maker had done. But as the list of those...

    Police arrested a prominent Democratic leader and staff member for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on child pornography charges, according to the New York Post. On Friday, the Post said that court documents stated that Jacob Schwartz allegedly kept thousands of photos and nearly one hundred videos on a laptop depicting horrifying acts with “young nude females between the approximate ages of 6 months and 16, engaging in sexual conduct… on an adult male.” Schwartz, 29, faces charges of “possession of a sexual performance by a child and promoting a sexual performance by a child,” according to the...

    The de Blasio administration, an administration plagued with corruption and poor policy, can now add one more item to their laundry list: child porn. Jacob Schwartz, 29, was a de Blasio administration staffer and a rising young Democratic figure before revelations came out about his obsession with child porn. Schwartz was popped for having over 3,000 images and 89 videos on a laptop. Some of the material discovered involved baby girls aging as young as 6 months old, court documents revealed Friday. NYPD computer-crimes investigators accepted Schwartz’s surrender Thursday morning. Schwartz has been under investigation since March 29, 2017, when...

    First rule of politics (that Repubs seem to have neglected) Never attend a town hall meeting you can’t control. That’s what Comrade de Blasio did with great aplomb. The NYPD, NYC Councilmen, the local progs, who remain loyal to the mayor, packed the meeting with loyalists who understood they were there to make nice with the mayor, or else. Even the so-called “hard questions” were asked with respectful voices. No shouting. No screaming. No chanting. No signs (nothing like that was permitted). No way, no how...

    Mayor de Blasio won’t face criminal charges related to his campaign fundraising practices, the acting US attorney in Manhattan announced Thursday. In tandem with his federal counterpart, Manhattan DA Cy Vance Jr. also announced he wouldn’t prosecute de Blasio or his team — even though they violated the “spirit” of the election law. Acting US Attorney Joon Kim said making a case against the mayor and his aides would have been difficult since there was “no evidence of personal profit.”

    An ongoing investigation by the highly respected U.S. attorney for Southern New York, Preet Bharara, apparently is targeting the top levels at City Hall, and there are reasons to expect that if a case is brought, it will be under the leadership Jeff Sessions, President-Elect Trump’s designee for attorney general. Michael Goodman of the New York Post reports on some serious clouds on the leftist mayor’s horizon, as the mayor desperately tries to hide emails that have been subpoenaed: Mayor de Blasio, calling questions about his shady dealings with political consultants and lobbyists a “distraction,” says from now on. he will release...

    The next citywide election is 16 months away, but with polls showing Mayor Bill de Blasio’s support at an all-time low, potential challengers have been clamoring for attention. Yet perhaps the most viable one has managed to keep her name out of the speculative talk: Christine Quinn. The former City Council speaker has clearly learned a lesson from peaking too early in a campaign. At this time four years ago, Quinn had a 10-point lead on the pack of Democrats looking to succeed Michael Bloomberg. When the only poll that counts closed on primary day, she came in third.

    Rudy Giuliani attack current Mayor Bill de Blasio for the way he responded to the bomb attack in New York City over the weekend. Rudy Giuliani, who earned the title of America's mayor for his handling of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, on Monday excoriated current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for looking like he was "kind of on Mars" during the early reaction to a weekend bomb attack. "He looked like he didn't know what he was doing," Giuliani told Circa in an interview when asked about de Blasio's initial response to an attack that wounded 29...

    NEW YORK – Mayor de Blasio has had a tough year with an ongoing federal probe into his administration, resignation of his press secretary and public feud with Gov. Cuomo, but now voters are saying they're not happy with him either. In a new poll, 51 percent of voters disapprove of his job performance. While only 41 approve of his work. Quinnipiac University conducted a telephone survey with 1,310 New Yorkers from July 21 to 28. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points. This new poll is in line with the one Quinnipiac...
