    Speaking from the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D.-Ore.) told President Donald Trump that he has “a dark and evil heart.” “You, Mr. President, have created a crisis, a humanitarian crisis,” Merkley said. “The arrivals on the border are not the crisis; it is your hardened heart, your dark and evil heart, your war on children; the deliberate strategy of inflicting trauma on children in order to send a message of deterrence, a political message of deterrence,” he said. Merkley also said Trump had created “internment camps” for children. …

    Legendary journalist Carl Bernstein has said that he’s been told that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show how President Donald Trump helped Russia “destabilize the United States.” Bernstein, who is renowned for his coverage of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of former President Richard Nixon, appeared on CNN’s Reliable Sources on Sunday to discuss two bombshell reports released this weekend, one from The New York Times and one from The Washington Post, which revealed new details about whether or not Trump and his aides have colluded with Russia.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio on Friday took the extraordinary step of firing his embattled investigations commissioner, Mark G. Peters, the culmination of a fierce rivalry between the two powerful men. It was a rare and consequential action by a mayor to remove an investigations commissioner: The position is understood to come with a large degree of independence that allows impartial scrutiny of all areas of government, including the executive branch.

    Burnishing his progressive credentials, Mayor Bill de Blasio portrayed himself as a protector of the working class on Thursday — while proposing a redistribution of wealth — in his sixth State of the City address. “Brothers and sisters, there’s plenty of money in the world. There's plenty of money in this city. It's just in the wrong hands,” said deBlasio, who owns two homes and collects $258,750 a year as mayor.

    Bill de Blasio has made a career of sticking his paw in New Yorkers’ pockets. Now he’s planning another national tour, and he’s digging deeper than ever. Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Kaiser Wilhelm is the luckiest sonfabeech in American politics. Hectoring “millionaires” all the way, he parlayed a seat on New York’s do-nothing City Council into a term as the city’s pointless public advocate, which he then rode into Gracie Mansion — arriving just when federal monetary policy was giving Gotham a cash bath to end all cash baths. Bill came, he saw, he...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a plan guaranteeing paid time off for workers in the city. The plan would require private employers with five or more employees to offer 10 annual days of personal paid time, which can be used for any purpose, including vacation and religious observances. More than  500,000 full-time and part-time employees currently have no paid time off. If the plan is approved, New York City would be the first city in the nation to mandate paid personal time off for workers. “Workers across the nation have been working too hard without enough time to rest and...

Previewing the plan on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, the mayor said it would cost about $100 million at full scale and ensure that all residents — including illegal immigrants — can see a doctor when they need to.

    New York is facing an educational disaster. Mayor Bill De Blasio's socialist plan to end meritocratic entry to New York's famed specialty schools - in performing arts, hard sciences, engineering, academic achievement - in the name of racial equality, is about to trigger a huge white flight. And not just white flight, Asian flight. Here's an excellent report from New York Post columnist Karol Markowitz: In a push to improve diversity at District 15 middle schools in Brooklyn, Mayor de Blasio last week approved a plan to remove admission standards at all of them. and The announcement of the...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio cited his "socialistic impulse" in describing an ideal world where New York City government has control over all land and buildings in his city. “I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be,” de Blasio said in a wide-ranging interview with New York Magazine. “I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community that they would like...

    We’ve covered plenty of stories coming from the ongoing corruption trials of donors to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the most recent one is turning into a highlight reel for Page Six. We previously noted how de Blasio had been subpoenaed to testify in the trial involving campaign finance violations and bribery with City Hall donor Jeremy Reichberg and NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant. Many of the details of those charges were routine, boring allegations of political malfeasance. Promises were made, donations were solicited and “favors” were done.But not all of the...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio used taxpayer resources to push his national political agenda — at one point even asking his staff to come up with a governmental excuse to justify a political trip to Washington, DC, emails show. In September 2015, Hizzoner was trying to build a coalition of labor and elected officials to support his Progressive Agenda — spending many hours each week peddling his income inequality platform to potential officials.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren delivered her first live pitch to presidential primary voters in Iowa on Friday night with a signature and searing indictment of the powerful interests she blames for corrupting government and decimating the American working class. The trip is an early test for the Massachusetts Democrat's growing political operation, which unveiled a slate of touted hires this week, and a candidate determined to show that her populist economic message can conjure up excitement for her campaign in Iowa's traditional proving grounds. **SNIP** Warren's remarks, which were briefly rendered almost inaudible when her mic lost power, included a call...

"What I did in my op-ed was not just talk about the president and my relationship with him and how we’ll work together, but also I laid out my perspectives and priorities on a very broad basis on everything from trade to China to our allies around the world, immigration and so forth," Romney said. Romney told Tapper while he is "not looking for the next election," he has not decided who will endorse in 2020. "I haven’t decided who...

    Incoming Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) revealed he would support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall one day after publishing an opinion piece in The Washington Post critiquing nearly everything about the current administration. “I would vote for the border wall,” Romney, former Republican presidential candidate, told CNN’s Jake Tapper in a Wednesday afternoon interview. “We should have a wall on the southern border,” the former governor of Massachusetts added. While he considers the government shutdown ― which has gone on for nearly two weeks ― an “unfortunate” situation, Romney did not directly criticize it.
