    The low rate of vaccination compliance by New York’s finest has lame duck Mayor Bill de Blasio threatening to withhold pay checks from the police and other city workers. Under the mayor’s mandate, all city workers must be vaccinated or be tested weekly for the disease. That order goes into effect on Monday,with an estimated 340,000 city workers under its guidelines. “If someone, again, does not follow that mandate, that’s true, eventually, they’re not going to be paid, obviously,” de Blasio said in a press conference on Thursday. The mayor has long had a contentious relationship with NY police, who...

    The city’s Department of Transportation (DOT) said today it will begin work this weekend along the Brooklyn Queens Expressway (BQE), in an effort to extend the life of the triple-cantilever roadway that runs underneath the Brooklyn Promenade. Crews will begin work Friday evening, but the real impact on traffic will be felt Monday, when DOT plans to reduce the number of lanes on the portion of the expressway from Atlantic Avenue to the Brooklyn Bridge from three to two in both directions. The agency warned drivers to expect construction-induced traffic jams, and suggested they take public transit instead. Trucks and...
  • NYC Restaurants: We Won’t Be ‘Vaccination Police’

    Some New York City restaurants will defy Mayor Bill de Blasio's (D.) order to ban unvaccinated people from entering businesses. De Blasio's mandate, which officially takes effect next week but will start being enforced Sept. 13, requires anyone who enters an indoor business in New York City to show proof of vaccination. The proof can come in the form of either the city's "Key to NYC Pass," the state's "Excelsior Pass," or a vaccination card. But Pasticceria Rocco in Brooklyn won't be requiring any passes from its customers, manager Mary Josephine Generoso told CBS New York. The award-winning Italian pastry...

    The AOH is calling upon NYC Mayor de Blasio to "publicly condemn the increasing acts of violence against the Catholic Church in New York City."A statement issued on August 11 by James Russell, the Catholic Action Chairman of the AOH, reads: "The New York State Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) calls upon both Mayor de Blasio to publicly condemn the increasing acts of violence against the Catholic Church in New York City as exemplified by the vandalism this past weekend at Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Mary Church in The Bronx.

    New York City is mandating proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter certain indoor businesses--including all indoor restaurants, entertainment venues and gyms, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Tuesday. "It's time to people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good and full and healthy life," de Blasio said during his daily press briefing. "This is crucial, because we know that this will encourage a lot more vaccination." The program, which de Blasio dubbed the "Key to NYC Pass," makes New York the first major city to create such a mandate...

    Tuesday was the six-month anniversary of the January 6 riot that Democrats are treating like Pearl Harbor Day. They would prefer that the nation focus on that and forget the fact that the country’s blue cities were on fire for pretty much the entire summer of 2020 and the people they supported had the matches. The rush was on by Democrats to support total anarchy and treat law enforcement as the enemy. Few were quicker to jump on that bandwagon than NYC's Mayor Bill de Blasio. Mayor Bill was more than eager to hang out with Black Lives Matter agitators...

    New York City's notoriously incompetent election officials have not finished tabulating the votes in the June 22 Democratic primary, with its novel ranked choice voting system. But the first choices of voters -- minus some 124,000 absentees -- nevertheless reveal some important things about the differences between different segments of the Democratic coalition in America's largest city. These initial results were a clear repudiation of the term-limited left-wing Mayor Bill de Blasio. Coming in first was Brooklyn borough president and former New York Police Department cop Eric Adams with 31.7%, well ahead of top de Blasio aide Maya Wiley, with...
  • Cuomo is using his waning power to block mask sanity for kids [ New York ]

    Last week, the Commack School District on Long Island wanted to do the sane thing and make masks optional for children. The move is long overdue. The state COVID positivity rate is under 1 percent, and deaths and hospitalizations have dropped precipitously. So why are kids, who should have never been masked in the first place, still forced to cover their faces? Why are kindergartners masked at recess outdoors, even after national virus guru Anthony Fauci said “the risk outdoors is very low”? In New York, it turns out it’s because Gov. Cuomo says so. Cuomo has been a disaster...

    Today, a seven foot-tall ignoramus stuffed his mouth full of greasy hamburger and french fries and began a comedic monologue while shooting saliva-soaked food shrapnel around the room. Even the sign language guy looked disgusted. “Just think of this when you think of vaccination,” Mayor de Blasio gasped, fighting to breathe as his entire skull was now occupied by food. We felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly anti vaxxers. Keep this moron away from important stuff, please. And then there is John Kerry. Kerry is not...

    Look, Sleepy Joe is peddling an agenda that will bring about the economic death of the United States, and a good chunk of the nation was toking up on the day this was announced, but we should circle back to this because the ‘defund the police’ push seems to have collapsed everywhere. Minneapolis tried it. It ended disastrously. And now, Bill de Blasio, who infamously declared he could cut the budget to police by $1 billion, said he would be giving it an additional $105 million in funding. This was announced on April 20. Why is Comrade Bill doing this?...

    NY State Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio are leftist New York’s version of Godzilla vs. King Kong. They have been fighting ever since DeBlasio was elected mayor. City Mayors and NY Governors never really get along, but with these two, it’s war. Each has an inflated ego, and each acts like a monster toward anyone who dares to disagree with their policies. Thus, the two have been engaged in an epic battle to determine which can screw over New York the worst. Each of the leftists has problems. DeBlasio comes off as sanctimonious, arrogant, and...

    An Asian man has been violently attacked in broad daylight in New York as the city continues to struggle with soaring rates of violent crime. Just hours after the horrific attack, 'soft-on-crime' Mayor Bill de Blasio was seen rubbing elbows with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda in nearby Times Square. The ugly incident occurred Monday afternoon on the Upper East Side, with the assailant allegedly targeting the man at random before body slamming him into the glass window of a store.

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Monday that he would be taking executive action against the “vaccine passports” being developed by the Biden regime and private corporations to deny Americans the right to commerce if they cannot provide proof of receiving a COVID vaccination shot on the spot. “You want the fox to guard the hen house? I mean, give me a break,” DeSantis said. “I think this is something that has huge privacy implications, it is not necessary to do.” DeSantis said that while it’s “important” for vulnerable populations to be able to take the vaccine, “we are not going...

Count on it. The passports are expected to be free and available through smartphone apps, which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass The Biden administration and private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials -- often referred to as "vaccine...

    Anthony Fauci, who plays a doctor on TV, is and always been a snake oil salesman. He has lied about face masks and everything else since the Chinese Wuhan virus, which escaped from a lab in Wuhan, first appeared. He cost untold thousands of lives by thwarting the full deployment of hydroxychloroquine in the early staes of the virus spread dspite evidence of the efficacy if this veal drug that had been safely used to treat other conditions for decades. I, for one, would trust Dr. Seuss for my medical needs before I trusted Dr. Fauci. Now, following Joe Biden’s...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) on Monday suggested that the state should consider slowing down the Big Apple’s reopening, placing him once again at odds with embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D). Earlier this March, Cuomo issued a directive allowing for New York City indoor dining capacity to be expanded to 50 percent. On Monday, the city’s gym classes were allowed to reopen at a 33 percent capacity.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's wife Chirlane McCray is calling for unarmed citizens "to peacefully intervene to prevent violent crimes by using the 'five D' strategy. The five Ds are Distract, Delegate, Document, Delay, and Direct." "Say you see someone being assaulted by a gang of thugs," McCray said. "The first thing you should do is distract the attackers by making yourself an alternate target. You could shout 'hey, stop hurting that person.' The thugs will probably refocus on you, giving the original victim an opportunity to escape. You could then delegate the least aggressive of the assailants...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio called for an investigation into the head of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's vaccination program, who had reportedly called county executives to see if they support Cuomo during his multiple scandals. According to The Washington Post, "vaccine czar" Larry Schwartz made the calls that made at least one county official fear that their response could jeopardize the county's ability to get vaccines and would impact the vaccine supply. "What we've heard about the governor and his team trying to link vaccine supply to political support, that is the definition of corruption," de Blasio said during...
