According to a story in Friday’s Wall Street Journal, New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office is looking at the City’s contracts with presidential candidate Donald Trump—including two ice skating rinks, a golf course and a carousel—all operated by the Trump organization. This was in the wake of Trump’s comments about illegal aliens coming across our southern border:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best,” Trump said. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people, but I speak to border guards and they’re telling us what we’re getting.” Trump declared. Were these remarks “racist” or absolutely true?
“The New York Times reports that about 4.5 million illegal aliens in the U.S. drive on a regular basis, many without licenses or insurance, or even the ability to read road signs written in English. (Meanwhile, the California legislature has just voted to give driver’s licenses to illegal aliens.) Yahoo.com writer J.C. Grant notes, “There is a statistically significant correlation between state per capita illegal immigration rates and car thefts. This correlation is particularly strong: the odds are less than two in one million that the correlation is a chance occurrence.”
“If just car thievery were the main concern, it would be an important problem to address. However, the Office of Immigration Statistics reported that of the 188,382 deportations of illegal aliens in 2011, 23 percent had committed criminal traffic offenses (primarily driving under the influence). Congressman [mc_name name=’Rep. Steve King (R-IA)’ chamber=’house’ mcid=’K000362′ ] (R-IA) estimates that illegal alien drunk drivers kill 13 Americans every day — that’s a death toll of 4,745 per year.
|“The 23 percent criminal traffic offenders figure is only part of the overall picture. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, another 23 percent, more than 43,000 illegal aliens, were convicted of drug offenses. The violent crime category of assault, robbery, sexual assault, and family offenses comes to 12 percent. The non-violent crime grouping of larceny, fraud, and burglary totaled seven percent, and on the list goes — equaling 100 percent of illegal aliens who have been through the criminal justice system and inflicted thousands to millions in cost per alien on the system, for issues having nothing to do with their illegal entry into the country.” “Some unlicensed drivers risk more than a fine,” by Julia Preston and Robert Gebeloff, December 9, 2010;www.nytimes.com/2010/12/10/us/10license.html?pagewanted=all

The usual suspects tried to silence and punish Trump for his statement, which appears to be true: NBC, the Washington Post, Univision, on and on and on.
Leftists all. So, it’s not surprising that de Blasio would seek to punish Trump also.
It would be fair to ask what kind of a guy is de Blasio. Let’s look back on some of his decisions. In short order, he is revealed as a far-Left ideologue. He ended successful police crime-prevention programs: broken windows and stop-and-frisk; and mosque surveillance.
Let’s now look back at his war on NY police.
The Mayor of NY appeared at a press conference, last December—designed to publicly repair his damaged relationship with the NYPD after his long-running anti-police campaign and the murder of two cops in Brooklyn. This was at the height of hate-police protests in New York (and nationwide).
Mayor Bill de Blasio at first seemed like any other human being, albeit a politician. He waxed poetic about the NYPD, and tried to make himself look mayoral.
But as the event wore on, it became obvious—even to members of the press—that it was an illusion: de Blasio is not a normal politician: he’s possessed by an evil entity—that of Radical Leftism.
There were several signs of his possession, in the run-up to the presser:
PBA head Patrick Lynch was the first to voice suspicion. He was quoted by the NY Daily Newssaying of Mayor de Blasio, at a closed meeting: “He is not running the city of New York. He thinks he’s running a f—ing revolution.”
As you no doubt remember, Mayor de Blasio caught major heat after a deranged Black man in Baltimore may have used the Mayor’s “NYPD is racist” comments as inspiration to come murder cops in New York.
Others may allow the mayor the benefit of some doubt about being the direct cause of the killings, or sharing that distinction with Al Sharpton. But to me, there’s little, if any doubt. The UK’s Daily Mail reports that Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the shooter, for months had been posting photos he had taken of cops, accompanied by hostile and threatening captions.
Their uniforms were observably not those of New York cops. The Daily Mail identified one as Atlanta. But he didn’t shoot any of those cops. He opted to travel almost 200 miles, to shoot New York cops. Why? Ask de Blasio and Sharpton.
At the press conference December 22nd, the Mayor tried to neutralize his prior denunciations of the police with feigned concern for their safety, but his radicalism kept oozing out.
Some in the press were less-than adoring of the Mayor. Here’s an illustrative excerpt from the official transcript of the presser:
Question: Mayor, you referred to the protesters as people who are working to advance justice in society. The chants that we’re hearing at protests – “NYPD KKK” “How do you spell racist – KKK” – would you be comfortable with your young adults in your household chanting like this at the protests, and we’re hearing this [inaudible]
Mayor: No, of course not.
Question: What do you make of these specific—[inaudible] who are literally getting in cops’ faces and yelling at them “murderer”?
The Mayor testily replied, in part:
“I got calls from all over this country with admiration for the NYPD, the way it protected people’s democratic rights; I heard from so many protestors who appreciated the NYPD…”—Yeah, sure: as if they weren’t protesting against the police.
Not a peep about how the NYPD kept New York the safest big city in the Nation: ideology is all these guys care about. De Blasio’s so steeped in it, he doesn’t know how crazy that sounded, as an answer to the question posed.
We don’t know what possessed him to make these cringe-inducing remarks, either:
In full-CYA mode, he asked the press a question so pathetic only those who get all their news from NBC could buy it:
“What are you guys gonna do? Are you gonna keep dividing us?” His tone betrayed that even he knew how absurd that question was.
But he turned decidedly mama grizzly when scolding the press for allegedly cherry-picking the worst acts of demonstrators, to report on: “I don’t see reports on the many decent, good people…stop portraying them as the majority!”
Neither the Mayor nor the press has mentioned the numerous placards calling for revolution that were waving amongst those many “decent, good people.”
De Blasio’s performance showed that he’s so far left, he just can’t restrain himself from displaying to one and all his solidarity with the anti-police demonstrators, even when he’s trying to make himself look halfway normal, lest there be an outcry for his resignation.
De Blasio’s Cop-loathing Associates
His efforts to appear normal are further bedeviled by a coterie of radical, anti-police staff members. Kicy Motley was hired as director of the Mayor’s Brooklyn community affairs unit by de Blasio, after she had been outed by the NY Post for twice posting anti-police messages in social media. On August 11, 2012 she tweeted: “NYPD fatally shoot knife-wielding man in Times Square. (VIDEO) F–k. The. Police.” In early February, 2013, tweeting as @BrooklynKicy, she wrote: “There’s a part of me rooting for #Dorner. This racist, imperialist country gets the best of people sometimes. It makes some snap. #lapd.”
She was applauding ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner, subject of the largest manhunt in LAPD history. He had issued a bizarre manifesto and a hit list of 40 names he swore payback to, for his firing, which he said was in retaliation for his report of a superior officer for brutality.
One of those on the hit list was Randal Quan, who had defended Dorner at his dismissal hearing. Dorner began with the fiendish murder of Quan’s daughter Monica, 28, and her fiance Keith Lawrence, 27. He went on to shoot Police officers Michael Crain and Andrew Tachias who were in their patrol car, stopped at a red light. Crain was killed instantly; Tachias was gravely injured. Dorner’s rampage ended nine days after it began, when authorities caught up with him at an isolated cabin. Dorner immediately opened fire on police, killing Sheriff’s Deputy Jeremiah MacKay and wounding Deputy Alex Collins.
Mayor de Blasio appointed Rachel Noerdlinger the $170,000-a-year chief of staff to First LadyChirlane McCray on Jan. 20, 2014. [She took a leave of absence last November.] Before that, she was spokeswoman for Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. According to the NY Post, she’s had a long-term relationship with Hassaun McFarlan, a convicted killer, who has posted on his Facebook page wicked things like this—a remark the subject of an exorcism might growl, while strapped, thrashing, to his bed. He posted under the name Hassaun Kenneth Ackles:
Jan. 13, 2012: “The system sucks this pig should be charged with a civil rights violation always givin’ the pigs a pass,” he posted, He including a link to a story about a Staten Island officer’s guilty plea in a false arrest. Since the story stated the cop “will likely receive a term of 46-57 months,” Ackles’s rancor is inexplicable.
March 15, 2012: “I cant come outside without the pigs f—— with me in the hood out the hood im a magnet to police f—— with me,” McFarlan wrote on his Facebook page, according to a report by DNAinfo.
The report says he has a long criminal record, dating back to the fatal shooting of an 18-year old over a down coat, when he was 15. He was captured some months later and served several years. Three years after his parole, he served nearly four years for drug trafficking.
In November of 2013, he was arrested following an enigmatic incident in Edgewater, New Jersey, involving Ms. Noerdlinger’s Mercedes. A police officer was directing traffic around an accident scene, when a Black Mercedes approached, making a “loud dragging noise.” That was because the right front tire was missing.
As it neared the officer, the Mercedes veered across the centerline, into oncoming traffic. The cop shouted and signaled for the driver to stop, but the driver continued; when he was ten feet from the officer, he abruptly accelerated, forcing the cop to jump backward, to avoid being hit.
The officer positively identified McFarlan as the driver, who never stopped. He was later apprehended, by following scrape marks on the road for two miles, to a municipal parking garage across the street from where McFarlan and Noerdlinger reportedly lived together. (Source, for the above: DNAinfo)
Police Unions objected to her association with McFarlan because her position required attending top-level meetings with police officials, as First Lady Chirlane McCray’s chief of staff—the only first lady in memory to attend such meetings.
Even Noerdlinger’s son, Khari has posted porcine tweets, reported the NY Daily News: “Rachel Noerdlinger’s son, Khari, 17, tweeted in August that ‘I’m convinced all white people are the devil’ and ‘That cop s— pissed me off Pigs always killing people.’” [Tweeting under @KharitheGod]
Ms. Noerdlinger is on extended unpaid leave, to spend more time with her son.
And then, of course, the Mayor is close to Al Sharpton, biggest cop-hater in the country, who sits in at meetings, along with the police commissioner.
Whom is de Blasio really serving?
While commiserating with the families of the slain cops, De Blasio has a strong association with local and national protests against police. In New York, he allowed protesters to block streets and bridges, which is clearly illegal. The latest travesty is hundreds of Black protesters invading Sunday brunches in Manhattan, Sunday (January 4th).
Ironically, de Blasio is not so pleased with the legal protest of the police,. Perhaps that’s because they are protesting the Mayor himself, by turning their backs on him.
Obviously, the police were protesting the lawless, cop-hating atmosphere the Mayor helped to create. Thus, de Blasio is serving neither the police nor the public. He is serving his own ego and the Radical leftist protesters.
A little investigation exposed his connection with the uber-left Working Families Party. The NY Post’s Bob McManus called the WFP “a laser-focused, hard-left-leaning coalition of militant private-sector unions, grasping public-sector unions.”
It was co-founded by Bertha Lewis, formerly of the now-defunct ACORN.
The WFP played a huge role in getting de Blasio elected, and has had a long association with him. The Daily Beast reported that WFP Head Dan Cantor said: “Early on, back when [de Blasio] was just on the school board, we saw him as someone we could hitch our wagon to,” Cantor said. “And he to us.”
The WFP website, in its “Take Action” section, contains a subsection called “Black Lives Matter.” At the bottom, is a link called: Find a demonstration near you. That’s the nerve center of the Ferguson National Response Network, which provides links to dozens and dozens of anti-cop demonstrations from coast to coast, and even in Hawaii.
Nationally, it’s even more horrifying. There’s no question de Blasio contributed to nationwide cop-hatred, with public comments—on national TV, yet—like his claim that he had to school his biracial son to be real careful around police.
Such statements are all the more vile, because they don’t just slip out. They are evidently part of a coordinated national campaign to defame police and degrade respect for courts and the law: We don’t like a grand jury decision? Let’s hit the streets—everywhere—for a few months.
More proof it is coordinated: Sharpton, who is close to both Obama and de Blasio, has taken credit for the nationwide street theater.
A flood of deranged tweets, starting immediately after the Brooklyn cop murder foretold even more violence to come. “Salute the shooter” is one example. Many were captured by @LilMissRightie, who commented: That was just an hour of tweets. They were going so fast no way I caught them all.”
Another tweet said: “How could you not predict cops getting shot doe [sic] They are literally killing black and brown folks for any and every reason EXECUTION style.” This is the impression gathered by many not-very-discerning people out there, from the diabolical remarks of our so-called leaders.
Is there any salvation for Mayor de Blasio? Come to think of it, no ordinary priest could exorcisehis demons, because he believes in Liberation Theology, a religion that fosters Socialism.According to the New York Observer, he admitted as much, the day before he was elected: “As I’ve said many times, I was very influenced by liberation theology, by Christian liberation theology in the work I did after college and after graduate school.”
That being the case, maybe Reverend Wright—the best known practitioner of that religion—should do the exorcism.
