    The NYPD used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to shuttle Mayor Bill de Blasio back and forth from his Canada vacation to the Big Apple for an event Thursday, The Post has learned. Hizzoner, who is in Quebec on a weeklong respite, briefly flew back to the Bronx for a memorial for slain Detective Miosotis Familia. “NYPD is transporting him in their plane,” de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips told The Post. “Their plane” is a Cessna 208 Caravan that cost roughly $3 million and was picked up by the department in 2017, sources said. The high-tech aircraft is outfitted with...

    Transportation to and from a lavish vacation hideout is a far cry from counterterrorism WHEW! The first breath of fresh air this morning for all those who sweltered through the 11-day straight extreme heat wave—but no thanks to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, vacationing in Quebec where 33 people died. Vacationing in air-conditioned luxury, Hizzoner de Blasio ignored both the killer heat wave, and the massive carbon footprint caused by his ride from his Canada vacation spot to the Bronx for a brief memorial appearance on a $3 million counterterrorism plane.

    The left is deeply embedded in identity politics. Hillary Clinton took this movement and ran with it in the 90s. For years, she said that the Republicans hated women, eventually making it part of the Democratic platform. The most recent trend is illegal immigration. Recently, President Trump made some comments about MS-13, calling them animals. The Democrat broadcasting service, also known as the mainstream media, did some creative editing to make the footage look like Trump hates immigrants. Liberals may be overplaying their hand.The mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, was on MSNBC a couple of days ago....

    The back-to-back bombshells of abuse allegations against New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman and President Donald Trump's decision to leave the Iran nuclear agreement dealt a tough blow today to Amy Spitalnick, who before signing on as press secretary for Schneiderman worked for nuclear deal advocate group J Street. The news that Trump would be leaving the Iran deal came just a few hours after Spitalnick had to alert reporters that her boss wouldn't be coming in to the office after he was accused by four women of nonconsensual sexual violence and resigned. Spitalnick had called Schneiderman a "proud feminist"...

    New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has announced that prisoners in the city will be housed according to the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex. "In New York City, we believe transgender rights are human rights. And we'll fight to protect those rights in city jails as well," he tweeted Monday. "It's the city's responsibility to protect the rights and safety of all New Yorkers, and that means protecting transgender individuals in city jails as well," the mayor said in a statement, according to AM NY. "New York City is one of the first major cities to...

    A Brooklyn legislator was accused Wednesday of delivering a bizarre tirade against Jews, while ripping Mayor Bill de Blasio as a sellout, during a local community board meeting this week. Assemblywoman Diane Richardson’s 50-minute rant during the Board 17 meeting Monday night faulted Jews for gentrifying in her district, which includes East Flatbush, Flatbush, Crown Heights and Prospect Lefferts Gardens, according to an eyewitness.

    Jihad scammers rightfully tossed out of court. You remember “Clockmed,” aka Ahmed Mohamed. Mohamed took apart an LCD digital clock and stuck it in a box. What he put together resembled a homemade bomb. Even though he admitted it looked “suspicious,” Ahmed brought it to school. When teachers and school administration officials became concerned for the safety of the students, they walked into Clockmed’s trap. Ahmed played the Islamofauxbia victim to the hilt. Lauded by President Obama, the Pope, 97 world leaders, the UN, hailed by NYC Mayor Bill deBlasio, who declared “Ahmed Day,” he became an enemedia icon and...

    Kids attending New York City's Success Academy charter schools do remarkably well. "We are No. 1 in student achievement in the state," says founder Eva Moskowitz, "outperforming all the wealthy suburbs." They do. Although they teach mostly poor kids, 95 percent pass the state math test, and 84 percent pass the English test. Pass rates at government run schools are 38 and 41 percent. How does Success Academy do it? "China and India are not worrying about the length of the school day," she replied. "We have to toughen up." From what I saw, "toughening up" doesn't make kids hate...

    Wealthy New Yorkers are furious that Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to open a homeless shelter in their ritzy Manhattan neighborhood.Dozens of wealthy residents packed into a community meeting to voice their anger over the decision to move 150 homeless men into the former Park Savoy Hotel, NY1 reports. The residents are concerned that the move will increase crime and decrease property values in their neighborhood on “billionaires row.”“How are these poor people, whose only livelihood is in one bag, deal with a $6 coffee and a $15,000 dress on the windows of Fifth Avenue?” asked one resident, a middle-aged man...

    The Justice Department on Wednesday threatened to subpoena 23 jurisdictions across the country if they don’t turn over information about their sanctuary city policies toward illegal immigrants. In letters to New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and other jurisdictions, the Justice Department demanded records relating to whether these localities are "unlawfully restricting information sharing by law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities." “I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio plans to travel all across the country in support of progressive causes during his next four years in office. The left-leaning mayor says his primary focus will be on economic fairness, reports the New York Post. “Democrats have to have the strongest most progressive message of economic change and fairness, so I think that’s even more important than a single leader emerging,” he said during a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday. “I’m going to go all around the country helping to support the folks who will be part of that change and...

    A BuzzFeed columnist has declared that "Cars donÂ’t belong on the streets of big cities, and we should do everything in our power to get rid of them." She can't be serious? The headline is "We Should Ban Cars from Big Cities. Seriously." We've seen this idea proposed by environmentalists from time to time based on "climate change," and by urban planners in the name of creating a few blocks of open space, but Jessie Singer's advocacy of a total ban is largely in response to Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City. Singer's column clearly has management's approval, given...

    A major donor to New York City's mayor testified Thursday that he gave money to Bill de Blasio’s campaign fund in exchange for access and favors. Jona Rechnitz, 34, a felon who pleaded guilty in March to making contributions in exchange for favors from government officials, made the claim when he appeared as a witness in the corruption trial of former city correction-union chief Norman Seabrook. Rechnitz is accused of bribing Seabrook to invest $20 million in union pension money in a friend’s hedge fund, the New York Post reported. But the topic quickly moved on to de Blasio, with...

    A Mayor Bill de Blasio donor-turned-felon testified in extraordinary detail Thursday that he and his businessman pals wrote the book on city corruption — buying off the Mayor’s Office and the Police Department using brazen pay-to-play tactics. “We’re going to become significant contributors, but we want access,” Jona Rechnitz, 34, testified telling de Blasio fundraiser Ross Offinger after Hizzoner clinched the Democratic nod for mayor in 2013. De Blasio soon paid Rechnitz a visit in his office, the disgraced businessman told jurors in Manhattan federal court. De Blasio — who last year called his relationship with Rechnitz “not a particularly...

    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 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,’’...

    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...
