    There's no place like home, Mayor Bill de Blasio says—and that's why he's shipping the city's indigent to Newark. In his weekly Ask the Mayor radio segment, de Blasio asserted that his controversial Special One-Time Assistance program, under which the administration pays the rent of a homeless household for one year if they exit the five boroughs, as the only way to get people into long-term accommodations. The comments came in response to a caller who reported being a homeless person relocated to a dilapidated apartment in New Jersey—and came days after Newark lodged a lawsuit against de Blasio and...
  • The Clintons’ connection to Panama Papers (Hillary staffer, foundations donors, pardon recepient)

    04/17/2016 5:03:18 AM PDT · by Liz · 17 replies
    The “Panama Papers” exposed thousands of offshore bank accounts of the politically high and mighty; 350 reporters---an International Consortium of Investigative Journalists---are pouring over a massive dump of more than 11.5 million documents from the Panama-based Mossack Fonseca law firm; the first findings were revealed earlier this month. Hillary quickly decried the “outrageous tax havens” for “the super-rich.” But it turns out that Hillary and Bill have multiple connections with people named — including campaign staffers and major donors, McClatchy Newspapers revealed Saturday. Those named used the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca to set up offshore entities. The firm has...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Newark Mayor Ras Baraka’s administration has sued New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, accusing the fellow Democrat of dumping his city’s population of homeless people on New Jersey’s biggest city. The lawsuit accuses the de Blasio administration’s Special One-Time Assistance, or SOTA, program of using strong-arm tactics to send people across the Hudson River to find a place to live. “This case concerns an unlawful program of ‘coerced’ migration,” Newark lawyers say in court documents filed in U.S. District Court in New Jersey on Monday. New York City officials are accused of “forcing SOTA recipients to...

    Online deliveries to an apartment building in northern Manhattan are left with a retired woman in 2H who watches over her neighbors’ packages to make sure nothing gets stolen. Corporate mailrooms in New York and other cities are overwhelmed by employees shipping personal packages to work for safekeeping, leading companies to ban packages and issue warnings that boxes will be intercepted and returned to the senders. A new start-up company is gambling that online shoppers who are worried about not getting their packages will be willing to pay extra to ship them to a home-based network of package receivers in...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio was booed and jeered by spectators as he marched in the city’s 100th annual Veterans Day Parade on Monday. One parade-goer — wearing an American flag sweatshirt and a mask depicting President Trump partially on the top of his head — shouted F-bombs as Hizzoner walked past. Other onlookers called the mayor “Comrade de Blasio” and urged him to go home. De Blasio waved an American flag and appeared unfazed by the taunts and mocking as he walked the 1.2-mile route along Fifth Avenue from 24th Street to 46th Street. Among the thousands of spectators at...

    Earlier this year, the Trump administration announced that it would expand the list of government benefits it considers when defining a person as a “public charge.” Under the new terms, an immigrant receiving, say, food stamps, emergency cash assistance, or living in public housing may see those benefits count against him when he seeks to upgrade or extend his visa status or apply for citizenship. It was long believed that immigrants to the United States should not impose social burdens and should thus secure local sponsors who could guarantee their expenses until they got settled. The Immigration Act of 1891,...

    In the tweet confirming he switched his official residency from New York to Florida, President Trump said, “Despite the fact that I pay millions of dollars in city, state and local taxes each year, I have been treated very badly by the political leaders of both the city and state.” As if on cue, those leaders instantly proved his point. “Good riddance,” thundered Gov. Cuomo. “Don’t let the door hit you on your way out,” chimed in Mayor de Blasio. Their sneering hostility is yet another example of how Cuomo and de Blasio are failing to take advantage of having...

    This hothead is going to have to pray for a lot of forgiveness. A crazed woman wielding a stiletto heel and shouting “f–k your God” bashed an elderly singing subway preacher in the head on a train in Manhattan, according to disturbing video released Friday. The 79-year-old victim was preaching aboard a southbound No. 2 train near the 42nd Street-Times Square station at around 10 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, when the woman removed her high heel and menaced him with it as if it were a weapon, according to cops and video of the incident.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) on Thursday questioned the details surrounding the death of billionaire financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, saying, “Something doesn’t fit here.” “It just doesn’t make sense that the highest-profile prisoner in America, you know, someone forgot to guard him,” de Blasio told reporters, Politico reports. “I want to understand, I think everyone wants to understand, what really happened.” He added: “I just don’t know what the nature of the death was. I just know it should never have happened, and we still don’t have good answers.” De Blasio’s comments come a...

    Previously directed detail to help his daughter move New York mayor and failed presidential candidate Bill de Blasio ordered his New York police security detail to drive his son to Yale University on multiple occasions. The New York Police Department detail transported Dante de Blasio to and from school seven or eight different times during his freshman year, and also took him to visit his uncle who lives near the school, according to the New York Daily News. A former member of the security said the decision had little to do with the younger de Blasio's safety. "There was no...

    Here’s one hypothetical Mayor Bill de Blasio will answer! Hizzoner said Thursday that President Trump would be arrested if he pulled a gun and shot someone on Fifth Avenue, despite the president’s attorneys arguing in Manhattan appellate court Wednesday that Trump would be immune from prosecution. “If anybody shoots someone, they get arrested, I don’t care if you’re president of the United States, if you shoot someone, you should get arrested and we would arrest him,” de Blasio told reporters at an unrelated press conference. “Anyone who says that and calls themselves a lawyer should not be a lawyer, let’s...

    Mayor Bill de Blasio doesn’t “understand how on earth” a German porn star got deep inside sensitive areas of NYPD headquarters, he said Thursday, as an NYPD boss vowed to find answers. “I’ve only heard the beginning of this, and I don’t like what I hear,” fumed Hizzoner of Annina Ucatis’ private tour of the Lower Manhattan cop shop — first reported by The Post — where she was free to film inside the clandestine Real Time Crime Center, and even outside Commissioner James O’Neill’s office. “I don’t understand how on earth this could have happened,” continued de Blasio of...

    The savage murder of four homeless men in Chinatown this weekend shocked New Yorkers and prompted anguished appeals for compassion. Mayor Bill de Blasio said that he was “horrified by this senseless act of violence against the most vulnerable members of our community.” Council member Stephen Levin, who has chaired the council’s General Welfare committee for the past decade, noted, “our neighbors who are living on the street or in shelters are so vulnerable & need this city’s compassion.” Local council member Margaret Chin demanded that the city “do more than the bare minimum to help the tens of thousands...

    Now that he has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is free to indulge in his favorite pastime—shafting the citizens and residents who fall under his governance. The newest bit of tyranny from the Mayor is the enactment of an ordinance that imposes hefty fines on anyone using the phrase “illegal alien” or the word “illegals.” “We determined that our ongoing policy of shielding accused rapists and murderers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents is not enough to discourage attitudes of hostility toward individuals who have entered...

The New York Post has identified his latest bid to make New York Cuba : It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate.

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, blaming “the ingratitude of Democratic voters for the unique perspectives I’ve brought to the campaign.” Among the “unique” perspectives cited by the Mayor were “the overlooked progress I’ve made in converting New York into a model society. I’ve championed efforts to unlink compensation from work or achievement. My programs have gone a long way toward enhancing the habitat for urban vermin and allowed their populations to increase.

    Mayor de Blasio blamed his lawyers for an improper loan between his political fundraising accounts that drew scrutiny from federal regulators. On Friday—the same day de Blasio quit his quixotic presidential bid—the Federal Election Commission sent the mayor’s campaign treasurer a letter demanding answers about why he billed $53,000 in campaign expenses to a state account he controls, NY Fairness PAC.
