    Hillary Clinton was at a small gathering recently with some politically connected people in NYC, and it seems she's noodling the idea of running for mayor. A source who was at the gathering last month says Hillary brought up the topic of running and made it clear she was honestly considering it.

    After failing miserably in her 2016 bid for the White House, several sources are reporting today that Hillary Clinton is mulling a potential run for New York City Mayor. Although Mayor de Blasio, whose term ends at the end of 2017, has close ties to the Clintons there is no love lost between the two after de Blasio initially refused to endorse Hillary's presidential bid. According to New York's Daily News, Hillary is being pressured by many New York Democrats to challenge Mayor de Blasio and wouldn't explicitly rule out a run when pressed by one top Dem late in...

    Barely two months after Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump, she is being urged by major Democratic donors and leaders to make a bid for New York City's mayor and challenge incumbent Bill de Blasio, Newsmax has learned. "She's talking about it," a former city Democratic elected official admitted to Newsmax over the weekend, saying the idea has not been dismissed by the former first lady's inner circle. "If she ran, she'd win," another source with deep ties to the Democratic and media establishment said. Some Clinton advisers are reportedly predicting Trump will stumble badly in his first...
  • Second time could be the charm for Christine Quinn

    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.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is giving the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran his full support. “I am encouraged by this morning’s announcement of a nuclear agreement between the P5+1 and Iran and look forward to seeing additional details in the coming days,” de Blasio said in a statement. “I applaud President Obama’s commitment to working toward a comprehensive diplomatic agreement, which provides the best means of preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon,” de Blasio said. “The president’s leadership has been crucial—and it should send a clear signal that the United States stands by its allies...

    Let’s make one thing absolutely clear at the outset: Neither Barack Obama nor Bill De Blasio ever considered a political action they didn’t respect. These guys are all politics, all the time. If any of their kids got killed they’d figure out how to do a fundraiser off of it or run a campaign. And if that’s an exaggeration then the burden of proof is on them to disprove it. Because we have ample evidence that they lack the normal human decency that tells the rest of us when we have gone too far. Exhibit One from the White House...

    The funeral for New York Police Officer Rafael Ramos was held yesterday. Thousands attended the funeral, including police officers from other states–even Canada. Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Vice President Joe Biden, and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio were also in attendance. Following weeks of demonstrations in the aftermath of the Staten Island Grand Jury’s decision not to file charges against officers in the Eric Garner case, Gov. Cuomo praised police in his remarks: “I frankly was amazed at the discipline and professionalism that the NYPD demonstrated. The NYPD protected the right of freedom of speech even though they themselves were the target...

    Elite New York Democrats are waging a war on children. Well… At least that’s how it appears when the progressive Democrat mayor kicks 700 students out of high-performing schools, because… Well… He doesn’t really have a good reason. Ostensibly, it’s because he doesn’t want charter schools (public education facilities that govern their affairs with autonomy from New York public education directives) to share space with underperforming school districts. Proving that there are worse things than a Bloomberg-run city, de Blasio has decided to kick at least three charter school programs out of their co-location agreements with traditional public education facilities....

    New York City’s brand-new mayor Bill de Blasio has an ambitious progressive agenda that includes tax increases, much talk about somehow crushing inequality and punishing “the elite.” Two issues high on de Blasio’s agenda are the creation of more abortion clinics across the five boroughs and an outright ban on horse-drawn carriage rides in Central Park. De Blasio’s animosity to the horse-drawn carriages runs deep, apparently. “We are going to get rid of horse carriages, period,” he said at a news conference Monday, according to CNN. He added that he believes the tourist attraction — popular since 1858 — is...

    Communist-sympathizing radical Bill de Blasio has laid out an ambitious, far-left agenda as he begins what is destined to be a disastrous reign as New York’s 109th mayor. Leveling left-wingers, with their perverse obsession with income equality, are looking eagerly to the city in the hope that the new mayor will “morph New York City’s municipal machinery into a closely watched laboratory for populist theories of government that have never before been enacted on such a large scale,” according to a fawning New York Times profile.

    The FDR bible used by Mayor Bill de Blasio for his swearing in vanished after the New Year’s Day ceremony, sparking a panicked, hours-long search for the historic tome. “They had the whole detail looking through blankets,’’ a police source said of the scramble by at least 50 NYPD detectives and city officials to find the Bible, which was given to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt as a gift at his first inauguration in March 1933. Former President Bill Clinton performed the ceremony Wednesday as de Blasio laid his hand on the bible.

    The hagiographic New York Times article paints a picture of Bloomberg as a selfless philanthropist mayor. The reality is a good deal more complex. In the past, the city paid its mayor; Mr. Bloomberg paid to be the city’s mayor. That much is true only because Bloomberg did spend a lot of money on elections. But he wasn’t the first billionaire to run for office that way. An analysis by The New York Times shows that Mr. Bloomberg has doled out at least $650 million on a wide variety of perks and bonuses, political campaigns and advocacy work, charitable...

    Bill de Blasio has appointed his transition committee and it includes Imam Khalid Latif. Latif is one of the cleaner faces of CAIR. He was a chaplain at Princeton and now NYU. Bloomberg appointed him to be a police chaplain and he’s won interfaith awards.He’s young enough and savvy enough to play the moderate role really well. You won’t catch him shouting “Death to America” or “We are all Osama” when the cameras are off. And his presence as a CAIR board member will be overlooked by most. In 2006, when deadly protests broke out in the Muslim world...

    From Breitbart: NYC MAYOR-ELECT DE BLASIO PROMISES TO WIPE OUT CRISIS PREGNANCY CENTERSThe city in which 41 percent of pregnancies end in abortion has elected a new mayor who is pledging to partner with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to expand their businesses even further by providing them with “city-sponsored” space to set up shop. Bill de Blasio, who was elected Tuesday with 73 percent of the vote, [!] also pledged to help abortionists wipe out their main competition – pro-life crisis pregnancy centers – which he refers to as “sham” clinics. These centers offer women financial and logistical...

    Bill de Blasio overwhelmingly was elected mayor here Tuesday, becoming the first Democrat to lead New York in 20 years and ushering in an era of activist liberal governance in the nation’s largest city. In early returns Tuesday night, de Blasio was soundly defeating Republican Joe Lhota, a protégé of former mayor Rudy Giuliani. De Blasio campaigned on a mantle of progressive change following Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s 12 years in office, highlighting what he saw as “a tale of two cities.” The moneyed Manhattan elite have had their mayor, he argued, and now the 46 percent of New Yorkers...

    I am totally sickened by the election results in NYC tonight. Virtually every single Dumbocrat won their respective election with at least 80% and up to 97% of votes. That is bizarre. Has a case of zombie-brain infected the people who live to the left and right of you? Even notoriously corrupt, absolutely stinking candidates won, like Melinda Katz, who had 2 children with Guardian Angels' founder Curtis Sliwa while he was married and who benefited from him swindling $400,000 from his then-wife to support his 2 kids with Katz. It was very difficult to vote due to the third-world...

    New York poised to usher in de Blasio as new mayor AFP - Left-wing progressive Bill de Blasio is poised to secure a landslide victory in New York's mayoral elections next week after executing a near-flawless campaign. De Blasio, whose public sector background and policies sit uneasily with the gigantic wealth of the establishment, appears certain of election victory, possibly by a historic margin on Tuesday. By placing his black, former lesbian wife and teenage children center stage, he appears to have connected to ordinary middle-class families and a vastly diverse electorate, if his mammoth poll leads are anything to...
