The Impossible Dream: CEOs Demand DeBlasio Fix New York City

What a fool’s errand this is. – A group of powerful CEO’s of huge corporations based in New York City sent a letter to El Buffoon Grande, communist Mayor Bill de Blasio yesterday, demanding that he “fix” the Big Looted Burned Out Apple. The city that never prosecutes rioters. The city that’s defunding its police. The city that has returned to the 1840s, when its streets that never sleep were used as open sewers.

Here’s an excerpt from a story at Fox Business:

New York City business leaders across multiple industries have sent a letter to Mayor Bill de Blasio asking for action to be taken on “public safety and other quality of life issues that jeopardize economic recovery.”

“Despite New York’s success in containing the coronavirus, unprecedented numbers of New Yorkers are unemployed, facing homelessness, or otherwise at risk,” the letter reads. “There is widespread anxiety over public safety, cleanliness and other quality of life issues that are contributing to deteriorating conditions in commercial districts and neighborhoods across the five boroughs.”

The business leaders noted that the city needs to send a “strong, consistent message that our employees, customers, clients and visitors will be coming back to a safe and healthy work environment” and are urging de Blasio to take immediate action to “restore essential services as a necessary precursor for solving the city’s longer term, complex, economic challenges.”

The business leaders also warned the two-term mayor that “People will be slow to return unless their concerns about security and the livability of our communities are addressed quickly and with respect and fairness for our city’s diverse populations.”

[End]

Oh, golly, “people will be slow to return” unless this evil circus clown of a Mayor somehow turns himself into the reincarnation to Rudy Giuliani.

I got news for you CEOs: Bill de Blasio is the second coming of David Dinkins, the corrupt incompetent mayor who turned New York City into a prequel to the Hunger Games during the 1980s and early 1990s before Rudy came along. And the truth here is that most of you jackasses supported de Blasio in his first run for the office even though you knew full well who he really is. Then, to heap insult onto injury for the “people” of this once-great city, you supported this raging buffoon’s re-election campaign, too. And you know what? Pretty much all of your “people” did the same damn thing.

Expecting Bill de Blasio to fix New York City is like expecting George Armstrong Custer to fix Montana’s Indian problem. It’s like expecting Chuck Wepner to fix the Muhammad Ali problem. It’s like expecting Rice to beat Texas in football.

It’s the most absurd, ridiculous thing imaginable, and here you are, a bunch of supposedly intelligent people who have risen to the literal peak of your organizations, writing a letter together demanding a fantasy that can never happen.

You and your employees are getting what you voted for. Everyone out here in Flyover Country is laughing at you. Because, like your favorite communist mayor, you’re a bunch of clowns, too.

That is all.

Democrats Are Destroying Their Own Cities, and it all Makes Perfect Sense

America’s cities are dying, and no one in the Democrat Party seems to want to do anything to stop it from happening. In fact, it is Democrats who are actively managing the chaos and destruction. Ask yourselves why that is the case.

After all, the big cities represent almost the entire base of power for the Democrat Party. That’s why the county-by-county presidential election maps always look like a sea of red with little blue islands sprinkled onto it.

Election Results in the Third Dimension - Metrocosm

Most of those islands are the counties where the big cities are. The sea of red is where they aren’t. This isn’t complicated.

Yet, right now, as we sit isolated in our homes today thinking about which useless, virtue-signaling mask we will wear when we venture out to the grocery store, Democrat mayors and city councils all over the country are willingly presiding over the complete destruction of their centers of power.

The mass exodus out of New York City that is happening right now under communist Bill de Blasio’s buffoonish leadership has become so severe that it had mass murdering Governor Andrew Cuomo actually begging wealthy people to move back, promising to buy them drinks and dinner if they do:

Mayors like De Blasio, Lori Lightfoot in Chicago and Muriel Bowser in Washington, DC appear bent on completely destroying their cities’ tourism industries, which are the life’s blood for their local economies. All three communist Democrat mayors have now imposed 14 day quarantine requirements against any person entering their cities from a broad list of other U.S. states, as well as other countries. This is madness, plain and simple.

Or maybe it’s something else entirely. Perhaps it isn’t madness at all, but simply a part of the goal of any communist in America, which is to destroy our nation’s institutions and economy in order to render the population destitute, isolated, frightened and needy, and thus far easier to control.

We must all wake up and recognize that today’s “Democrats” are not our father’s or grandfather’s Democrats. We have no doubt all known so many Democrats in our lives who voted for that party’s candidates out of a sense of compassion for the poor and perceived generosity, albeit with other people’s money. Voting for Democrats has been their means of assuaging their own guilt over having so much in their lives.

Anyone who still believes that today’s Democrat Party still has anything even slightly resembling a sense of compassion for the poor in our society is living in some warped, post-apocalyptic version of Fantasy Island. Literally the only thing today’s Democrat politicians care about doing with the poor is to manufacture more of them, whether that be by destroying our own economy or by opening up the borders to anyone who wants to come in and become dependent on our already overwhelmed social safety net.

Do any of you really still believe that San Fran Nan and Chuckie Schumer have tanked the latest stimulus bill because they want more in it for the poor? That’s what the trillion dollar GOP Senate bill is focused on doing.

The stuff the Democrats want to lard into it in fact involves about a trillion dollars to bail out their own poorly-managed states and cities that they have run into the ground over the past half century, giving a gigantic tax break to wealthy people in New York and California, and spending another trillion or so on “Green New Deal” nonsense that will dramatically increase everyone’s power bills, a move that would hit the poorest the hardest.

The irony is that congressional Democrats are trying to bail out the big cities that local Democrat officials are in the process of intentionally destroying. This week, in response to Cuomo’s pleading, the Big Doofus de Blasio told reporters that “New York is for New Yorkers.”

He then went on to say the following (read carefully):

“We must build our policies around working people,” he said. “If the federal government fails us we should immediately return to Albany to the discussion put a tax on wealthy New Yorkers.”

“While everyone else is suffering, you see stock markets rising, the rich getting richer. Wealthy New Yorkers, they can pay a bit more so can get through this crisis,” de Blasio continued.

De Blasio during his press conference also advised New Yorkers against buying a car. “My advice to New Yorkers is don’t buy a car, cars are the past, future is mass transit, biking, hiking,” the mayor said. “Going forward I will never buy a car again.”

“There’s a lot of New Yorkers who are wealthy who are true believers in New York City and will stand and fight with us, and some may be fair-weathered friends, but they will be replaced by others,” the mayor continued.

[End]

Will the wealthy who are fleeing the city really be replaced by others, as the Mayor contends? What wealthy person in his or her right mind would move to New York City as it exists today?  What person of means would voluntarily move into a city to pay double the taxes he or she would owe in a neighboring state? What person with an innovative, forward-looking mind would want to live under the yoke of a communist Mayor who wants his citizens to eliminate their own independence and mobility?

Even more to the point: What person of means would want to live in what has become a hell-hole with skyrocketing crime and constant rioting, and which is governed by a communist Mayor and city council that is actively de-funding the police department?

And it’s not just New York City: The very same dynamics are taking place in Democrat-run cities all over the country. We talk about Portland, Chicago, Seattle and Minneapolis a lot, but the exact same things are happening in Democrat-run cities in red states like Texas and Louisiana and Tennessee and Georgia.

It all seems like madness, this effort by Democrats to destroy the cities that serve as their base of power. But, when you accept the reality that today’s Democrat Party is now a violent, radicalized, Alinskyite/communist organization with all the attendant overarching goals that come with it, you realize it isn’t madness at all, but just a necessary piece of the Grand Plan.

Once you accept who today’s Democrats truly are, everything they do makes perfect sense.

That is all.

De Blasio’s New York Looks Increasingly Like 1930s Berlin

The Evening Campaign Update

It’s 1937 in Berlin… – No, wait, it’s 2020 in New York City, and Mayor Warren Wilhelm – who changed his name to Bill de Blasio years ago for some odd reason – is doing this at the largest park in Brooklyn’s main Jewish neighborhood:

This move comes one day after Mayor Wilhelm, er, “de Blasio” remained studiously mute and did nothing to intervene while this happened at the Brooklyn Museum:

Image

That was the 90% white crowd that gathered for the Trans Black Lives Matter rally, or something like that. No social distancing, few masks, no place to wash their hands every 10-15 minutes to try to control the spread of the Wuhan Virus or just general cooties, and de Blasio said and did nothing.

At this point, it really is time to ask a difficult question: Why does Bill de Blasio hate Jews? Since the very beginning of this insane response to the Wuhan Virus, the Mayor has been creepily focused on ensuring his police department cracks down particularly hard in the various Jewish neighborhoods in the Five Burroughs. He has repeatedly gone out of his way to threaten the city’s Jewish population and make sure his cops focus special attention on them, their children and their businesses.

This welding of the park gates is just the latest in a series of actions that de Blasio’s enforcers have taken to ensure Jewish children stay out of their neighborhood parks. Just last weekend, while thousands of New Yorkers frolicked unmolested in Central and Bryant Parks, de Blasio’s storm troopers made sure they cleared out another Jewish neighborhood park where half a dozen kids were using the playground equipment while their parents watched.

It’s a truly disturbing trend, and you have to wonder why the Jewish members of New York’s congressional delegation, including Chuck Schumer, remain so silent in the face of de Blasio’s obvious bias. We have seen this kind of growing discrimination against Jewish populations many times in the past, and they never end well.

Of course, Warren Wilhelm is far from the only raging leftist hypocrite in America today. – The country is literally brimming over with them. Over at NBC News, the leftist activists who run the place ran the two stories below within an hour of one another:

You can’t make this stuff up – the parables of abject hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness just write themselves.

In Philadelphia, the leftist Democrat Mayor and District Attorney took to twitter to attack a group of about 100 Italian Americans who surrounded a statue of Christopher Columbus in Marconi Park to protect it from being torn down by Antifa/Black Lives Matter rioters. Neither has had a word of criticism for the rioters, looters and building burners over the past three weeks.

Lesson: In Philly, as in all the other Democrat-run cities around the country, destruction of personal and public property is fine with the city leaders; defending it will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Man, no one could’ve seen this one coming. – Back in New York City, meanwhile, the local NBC affiliate reports that 250 of the Rikers Island felons released by Governor Andrew Cuomo since March have now been re-arrested a total of 450 times for the commission of new crimes. Boy, that outcome sure was hard to foresee, huh? Oh, and to make it all better, local radical Democrat judges just keep letting the re-arrested felons back out on the streets over and over again to commit new crimes.

From the piece at NBC4 New York:

Hundreds of prisoners released early from Rikers due to COVID concerns are being enabled to re-offend again and again without consequences, law enforcement leaders say.

“We’re continuing to see people get arrested over and over and let right back out. And it really defies common sense,” NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea said in an interview with NBC New York.

Of approximately 2,500 defendants sprung from Rikers early because of COVID safety planning, at least 250 have been arrested again since, according to Michael LiPetri, chief of Crime Control Strategies for the NYPD.

Chief LiPetri tells NBC New York the NYPD did not object to releasing older defendants, nor those with underlying medical conditions. But he says the consequences of the larger-scale release of prisoners are now showing up in the arrest data, with those 250 re-offenders being arrested 450 times so far during the pandemic.

[End]

And this isn’t just limited to Blue state cities like New York. We see the very same revolving door thanks to leftist judges and district attorneys bought and paid for by Soros-funded super PACS taking place in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and Austin in Texas as well. This is where Democrats want to take the entire country, folks, so if you live in a big city run by Democrats and have the means to do so, the time to get the hell out of there is now, before their radical insanity drives your property value down to near-zero.

Oh, hey, it’s not the CHAZ anymore. – It’s now the “CHOP.” Presumably, someone informed the people who created the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone that, when you have to literally beg outsiders to bring you free food because you aren’t capable of securing it for yourself, that means you aren’t exactly “autonomous.” So, now, the spoiled nitwits are calling their 6 square blocks of excrement and dumpster fires the Capitol Hill Occupied – or maybe it’s Organized, no one seems to know for sure – Protest, or “CHOP.”

See? I’m not just making this stuff up. Who could?

In New Tweet, Bill de Blasio Goes Full-on Hitler [UPDATED]

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Going full-on Hitler is never a good look, Mr. Mayor. – Holy cow, it’s hard to even know what to say about this latest tweet from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Just take a look at it and then contemplate its implications in the context of the long, sorry history of political leaders who have previously decided it was time to start “rounding up the Jews” in their own cities or countries:

If nothing else, the utter and complete lack of self-awareness on display here is stunning, even shocking.

Of course, the media will try to studiously ignore this since de Blasio is a Democrat. But try to imagine the uproar that would justifiably resonate throughout the nation’s news media if such a tweet or statement targeting “the Jewish community” were to be issued by any Republican mayor, governor or member of congress. It would be epic.

And note that the use of the term “the Jewish community” betrays the fact that Mayor de Blasio views those of the Jewish faith to be somehow separate and apart from “normal” New York society.

This is LITERALLY HITLER, y’all.

Image may contain: 1 person

Shocking. I don’t even know what else to say other than that.

UPDATE: By contrast, here is the tweet the Mayor issued to Muslims in his city last week at the beginning of Ramadan:

ummmm…doesn’t that look to you as if he is actually encouraging Muslims to congregate in large groups?

Despicable. And shocking.

Big City Mayors Move to Out-Fascist Gubernatorial Counterparts [Updated]

The Evening Campaign Update

Two very disturbing videos emerged on Saturday that make one marvel that they could actually have been made in the United States of America. One came from New York City, the other from Los Angeles, the two largest cities in the country.

First there was this from Marxist New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. You have to see it, and read the subtitles along with, to believe it:

“…we still know there’s some people who need to get the message. And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there, to educate people and make sure the social distancing is there. So, now it’s easier than ever. When you see a crowd, when you see a line that’s not distanced…you can report it right away so we can get help there to fix the problem…it’s as simple as taking a photo…take the photo and put the location with it and, bang, send a photo like this and we will make sure that enforcement comes right away. Text the photo to 311-692 and action will ensue.”

Holy crap. Just be thankful that Stalin, Hitler and Mao didn’t have today’s technology to use as tools to assist with their surveillance efforts, so that they could send ‘enforcement’ to ‘fix the problem.’

Note that de Blasio doesn’t say ‘law enforcement,’ just ‘enforcement.’ Why? Because there is no ‘law’ being enforced here. The only thing his ‘enforcement’ squads are ‘enforcing’ are his imperial edicts, which may or may not ever be shown in court to have actually been backed up by any law.

This tiny little 8-foot tall goon is so insecure in his authority that he is now resorting to recruiting ordinary citizens to spy on one another and tattle under the myth that doing this will somehow keep them ‘safe.’

What could possibly go wrong?

As if that weren’t disturbing enough, take a look at this image coming out of Los Angeles, as its thug Democrat Mayor Eric Garcetti orders a bulldozer to fill the world-famous Venice Skate Park with sand in order to keep kids idle at home:

Note that Garcetti is the same guy who just a few days ago announced that he will not allow any gatherings of large crowds such as concerts and sporting events until 2021. He is taking these draconian actions to tighten down the vise of government on his population even as governors around the country are announcing plans to begin reopening their states in the coming weeks.

Can this agenda be anything other than pure, raw politics?

And to pile insult onto injury, there is this report out of San Diego:

Citations were issued to 22 people found near the beach in Encinitas in violation of San Diego County’s stay-at-home order, authorities announced Saturday morning.

The tickets were issued Friday to people who “were watching the sunset, having picnics near the beach,”  according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

“Everyone is required to stay home, except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care or go to an essential job,” the department tweeted Saturday morning. “Complacency is the enemy. Take social distancing more seriously to stop coronavirus.”

[End]

Complacency is the enemy, comrades.

We know there’s some people who need to get the message, comrades.

Send a photo and we will send ‘enforcement,’ comrades.

We’re all in this together, comrades.

God bless um…er….America?

Update: This from Maryland today – the nation is beginning to reap what we have allowed our leaders to sow.

This from Las Vegas:

This from Austin:

…and San Diego:

…and Annapolis:

…and Wisconsin:

…and Ohio:

New Yorkers Suffer Today From Wounds Inflicted by de Blasio and Cuomo

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

I’m going to preface this by saying that I love New York City and the people there. My wife and I have visited there upwards of 20 times over the past decade, and have twice taken our entire family with us for Christmas vacations. We are huge theater fans, love the Broadway scene, the museums, the parks and the general busy-ness there. We have never had anything but positive experiences there and look forward to going back whenever life gets back to some semblance of normalcy.

But there’s the deal: New York City and New York State are saddled with horrific leaders. Just plain awful, uncaring and out of touch individuals who lack the first idea of how to behave in a crisis like this one. Mayor Bill de Blasio is a committed Marxist clown who might as well wear a red nose and gigantic clown shoes to work. His utter fecklessness during February and early March is basically the reason why his city is the epicenter of this epidemic in America today.

He was all over television during those weeks telling New Yorkers to live life as normal, ignoring the advisories issued by the CDC and the White House Coronavirus Task Force, and even allowing a massive Chinese New Year celebration to be held in February. As the very, very, very liberal New York Magazine pointed out in a devastating piece on the Mayor this week, as late as March 10, de Blasio was pretending life could just go on as normal for most New Yorkers:

“For the vast majority of New Yorkers, life is going on pretty normally right now,” Bill de Blasio said on Morning Joe March 10, as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. topped 1,000. “We want to encourage that.” He added that there was a “misperception” that the disease “hangs in the air waiting to catch you. No, it takes direct person-to-person contact.”

He pledged to keep schools open, even if someone at any given school was found to have contracted the disease, saying that they would take a day to isolate the sick and clean the school before getting it back up and running. “If you’re under 50 and you’re healthy, which is most New Yorkers, there’s very little threat here.”

Those remarks came at a time when the CDC/Task Force were telling people of all ages to stay at home and only venture out to get groceries and other necessities. School districts all over the country were beginning to shut down, and governors were at the time getting ready to issue orders that all non-essential businesses be closed. The Mayor continued to hold out on cancelling the city’s huge St. Patrick’s day parade, waiting until March 13 to finally relent.

Perhaps in part due to de Blasio’s lackadaisical attitude, many New Yorkers continue to lack a basic understanding of the crisis their city is facing. Check out this scene from a park in Queens from Saturday:

I love New York and want to go back, but the longer this behavior continues, the longer it will be before anything goes back to normal.

Governor Andrew Cuomo isn’t helping in this regard, either. He’s getting rave reviews from the corrupt news media for his “leadership” since he’s a Democrat, even to the point of being talked up as a potential replacement for the elderly, clearly impaired Joe Biden when the time comes to toss him over the side. To his credit, the Governor is adept at holding a daily press conference, but other than that, what has he really done?

He spent a solid week pointing fingers at the federal government for his state’s shortage of ventilators, but we found out that he had refused to stock up on ventilators in 2015 when his health officials recommended he purchase 16,000 of them. As President Trump pointed out in an interview:

“He had a chance to buy in 2015 16,000 ventilators at a very low price, and he turned it down. I’m not blaming him or anything else. But he shouldn’t be talking about us. He’s supposed to be buying his own ventilators. We are going to help,” the president said.

That was last week. This week, after FEMA had delivered a total of 8,000 of the things to New York City, we discovered they were just sitting in a warehouse days later, unpackaged, undistributed and unused. Shortly after photos of the thousands of ventilators appeared in the press, the Governor finally sent in crews to move them…somewhere. No one really knows.

Cuomo’s response when asked about these thousands of unused ventilators was classic Cuomo BS:

“Yes, they’re in a stockpile because that’s where they are supposed to be, because we don’t need them yet,” Cuomo said. “We need them for the apex, the apex isn’t here, so we’re gathering them in a stockpile.”

Cuomo’s comments demonstrate there is not an immediate shortage in ventilators in the city, despite alarming reports.

“We don’t need them today, because we’re not at capacity today, that’s why they’re not deployed because they’re not needed,” Cuomo said.

So, you spend weeks bitching about a supposed shortage of ventilators – a shortage Cuomo created himself with stupid decision-making 5 years ago – and then, when they are delivered, you let them sit in a warehouse because you really didn’t need them at the time you were complaining, and might not ever need them at all.

This is appalling.

Throughout all of this time, tens of thousands of New York citizens have, thanks to the complete inaction of Governor Cuomo to implement a travel ban from the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak, been traveling to Florida and other states, very likely helping to further spread the virus. The problem has become so bad that Governors in several states, including Florida and Rhode Island, have issued mandatory 14-day quarantines of anyone coming into their states from New York, and have even begun turning cars with New York license plates on them away at the state borders.

Cuomo’s response? Last night, he threatened to sue Rhode Island if that state doesn’t relent and allow New Yorkers to keep spreading the virus. I swear I do not make this stuff up:

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is threatening to sue Rhode Island over its new coronavirus policy that calls for police to stop cars with New York license plates and has seen National Guard members go door-to-door to ask if anyone has arrived from the Empire State.

Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo — like Cuomo, a Democrat — announced the drastic new policies last week to limit the spread of the coronavirus. New York is the epicenter of the outbreak in the U.S., confirming more than 52,000 cases of COVID-19 and recording more than 700 deaths.

“I understand the goal … but there’s a point of absurdity, and I think what Rhode Island did is at that point of absurdity,” said Cuomo. “We have to keep the ideas and the policies we implement positive rather than reactionary and emotional.”

But that’s not all. When President Donald Trump casually told reporters Saturday morning that he and the Task Force were “considering” a quarantine of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, Cuomo responded thusly:

“This is a civil war kind of discussion,” he said of the proposal while doubting that Trump was seriously considering it as an option. “I don’t believe that any administration could be serious about physical lockdowns of states.”

Yes, friends, the man whose utter lack of leadership helped to create the problem considers federal deliberations over how to deal with his own ineptitude to be some sort of act of war.

This is leadership, New York style, and as of today it is a severe problem not just for New Yorkers, but for the entire country.

That is all.

Friday Follies: NATO, Trump Polls and New York Ventilator Madness

The only real question here is, why? – Readers will be thrilled to know that the country of [checks notes] North Macedonia is now a proud member of the NATO Alliance:

Now, God bless Secretary of State Mike Pompeo – he’s just doing his job here. But let’s be real: The reason why NATO exists is as a mutual protection pact against aggression from Russia. Is the U.S. really prepared to wage war on Russia if it should attack the nation of [checks notes again] North freakin’ Macedonia? Are we really going to expend American lives and treasure in a war to save a country that very few Americans even know exists?

And hell, let’s really get to the point: Why does NATO even really need to exist at all today? Why does the U.S. continue to spend many billions every year to protect Western European nations who are too lazy to provide for their own defense?

Yeah, I know – I’m just spittin’ into the wind here. Let’s move on.

Ventilators? What ventilators? – If you’ve been paying attention over the past two weeks, you have heard the corrupt media, along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City’s buffoon communist Mayor Bill DeBlasio whining to to rafters about NY City hospitals being overwhelmed and not having enough ventilators.

Well, take a look at this:

No photo description available.

That’s right: 2,000 ventilators delivered early this week by FEMA sitting unused in a damn warehouse unused. The reality is that New York politicians are playing the same sleazy game as their counterparts in Puerto Rico played, hiding massive supplies in a warehouse supposedly need to “save lives” in an effort to harm the President politically.

This is dangerous madness, and it needs to stop.

Democrat/media panic explained in two screenshots. – In today’s RealClearPolitics average of polls, President Trump’s approval average is 47.3%. On Election Day, 2016, it was 37.5%.

No photo description available.

No photo description available.

This is why the media and their Democrat masters are in such a wild panic right now. This is why New York Democrat politicians are hiding ventilators in warehouses. This is why Democrat governors in Nevada and Michigan are actively denying their citizens access to hydroxychloroquine, a cheap, safe and plentiful drug that has been proven effective in fighting COVID-19.

This is why we saw these insane displays from Democrat House members on the floor this morning:

TDS is a very real thing, folks. These people and their corrupt media toadies are losing their damn minds. What a spectacle. Somebody pass the popcorn.

Mike Bloomberg Has Some ‘Splainin’ to do

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

Well, isn’t this just an inconvenient truth? – Just as he was beginning to gain traction in some national polls with his quarter-billion-dollar ad campaign – he now places third in the newest Quinnipiac national poll – Mini-Mike Bloomberg is about to face a hard truth about his real nature, and the policies he pursued while serving as Mayor of New York City.

The main policy in question is the so-called “stop and frisk” policy Bloomberg, who, remember, was then pretending to be a moderate Republican, aggressively enforced throughout his three terms in office. That policy helped to control crime rates in the most dangerous neighborhoods within New York’s five Burroughs by allowing police officers to stop and frisk anyone they considered suspicious without any real probable cause.

The policy was hugely successful, and was just fine for a Republican. But now, Mini-Mike is pretending to be a liberal Democrat, and trying to appeal to a voter base that has moved radically and violently to the political left over the last four years. Suddenly, the enforcement of a hugely-successful anti-crime policy that targeted mainly minority suspects (because, as you will hear Bloomberg say in a moment, that is where the vast majority of the crime is) becomes not an asset, but an enormous political liability.

Aware of this reality, Bloomberg has on a few occasions tried to preemptively explain this all away as a simple error in judgment. But this is a man who was Mayor of the nation’s largest city for 12 solid years, longer than Rudy Giuliani. Throughout those dozen years, Mini-Mike very aggressively pursued “stop and frisk” and many other anti-crime policies he inherited from Giuliani that without question targeted mainly minority communities.

Contrast that behavior to the policies of current Marxist/Democrat Mayor Bill DeBlasio, who has not only cancelled pretty much all of Bloomberg’s anti-crime measures, but is now just letting accused criminals out onto the streets without having to even post bail. This is the kind of chaos in the streets that the current Democrat voter base favors.

Bloomberg’s efforts at preemptive inoculation were already running into headwinds from the far-left radicals, but now his problems will become even more severe. Yesterday, audio leaked on Twitter of Bloomberg bragging to an audience in 2015 about “stop and frisk.” The language the ex-Mayor uses about minorities and their communities is very blunt and will serve to enrage identity politics radicals.

Below is a clip of the audio, followed by a transcript. You will see that Mini-Mike has, in the words of the late, great Desi Arnaz, “got some ‘splainin’ to do.”

Transcript:

95% of your murders – murderers and murder victims – you can line ’em up. You can just take the description, Xerox it and pass it out to all the cops. They are male minorities, 16 to 25. That’s true in New York, that’s true in virtually every city in America.

And, that’s where the real crime is. You’ve got to get the guns out of the hands of the people that are getting killed.  You want to spend the money on a lot of cops on the streets. Put those cops where the crime is, which means in minority neighborhoods.

So, one of the unintended consequences is people say ‘Oh my God, you are arresting kids for marijuana that are all minorities.’ Yes, that’s true. Why? Because we put all the cops in minority neighborhoods. Yes, that’s true. Why do we do it? Because that’s where all the crime is.

And look, the way you get the guns out of the kids’ hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them. And they start, and they say, ‘Oh, I don’t want to get caught.’ So they don’t bring the gun. They still have the gun, but they leave it at home.

Now, the corrupt national news media, in its role as the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party, will do everything it can to keep this audio covered up for Mini-Mike’s benefit. But it’s out there now, and every pro-Trump social media account will be repeating it to their audiences from now through November. You can also be certain that portions of this audio will become parts of hundreds of hours of Republican ad campaigns should Bloomberg ultimately manage to purchase the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination.

Again, this was an extremely effective policy, one that made the law-abiding citizens in these minority communities far safer than they are today under New York’s current Marxist Mayor. But it is also a policy that without question violated the civil rights of many innocent people, the vast majority of whom are target Democrat voters.

There is just no way to explain that language, coming as it did several years after Bloomberg had left office, as an innocent error in judgment. Regardless of how diligently the corrupt media works to cover this all up, Mini-Mike has a real problem in a Party that is so heavily reliant on minority votes to have any chance of winning. And the leaders of the Democrat Party now will have to decide if they really want to sell their presidential nomination to such a problematic billionaire.

Ain’t it great?

That is all.

UPDATE: About 10 minutes after I posted this piece, President Trump weighed in on this matter as only he can do:

Oh, man, this is, in a word, delicious.

UPDATE II: And now there’s this video. Unreal.

Government Shutdown, Day II: Still Alive in New York City

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Government Shutdown, Day II: Still alive in New York City.

The sun still rose over Central Park (see photo for proof). Elevators in our hotel still function. Breakfast buffet still had sausages to piss off the vegans staying here. Local news reports that airline flights still taking off from La Guardia, JFK and Newark despite rampant rumors that air traffic controllers and Homeland Security have been shut down (hint: they haven’t been).

Streets devoid of sirens of hundreds of ambulances taking dying citizens to hospitals due to shutdown. Hospitals still actually open despite shutdown rumors. But the streets remain filled with yellow cabs staffed by extremely rude and often completely lost drivers who speak English as a third language. Times Square still filled with freaks in cartoon character costumes trying to rob you of your money. The guys in those pedicabs now charging $7 per minute (yes, per MINUTE!). Despite the Government Shutdown, the gaudy signs in the Square remain so brightly lit they can be spotted by all those aliens who hang out in the vicinity of Orion’s Belt.

Situation oddly normal.

That is all.
