Bill De Blasio
On Sunday's State of the Union show on CNN, host Jake Tapper squeezed a couple of inconvenient truths out of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Those truths are that both drunk driving and grand larceny, if committed by illegal immigrants, are among the criminal offenses which de Blasio and Gotham in general don't believe are serious enough to warrant contacting federal authorities for deportation.
The Democrats insist that "voter fraud is very rare" and that "voter impersonation is nearly non-existent." The press has consistently almost completely ignored evidence that voter fraud and voter impersonation are serious and growing problems. One can expect that indifference will continue to be the norm even after the latest video produced by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas. The video shows a Democratic Commissioner of the Board of Elections Alan Schulkin of New York County, which is the county-level name for the Manhattan borough of New York City, at a holiday party in December 2015 "admitting that there is widespread voter fraud in New York City."
On Friday, the New York Daily News broke the news that "The head investigator for the state Board of Elections probed the 2014 fundraising efforts by (New York City) Mayor de Blasio and his team on behalf of the (New York State) Senate Democrats and found enough 'willful and flagrant' violations to warrant a criminal referral to the Manhattan DA’s office."
The story has attracted virtually no national establishment press attention. The New York Times, which seems to have sensed the gravity of the matter in the nick of time, ran an excuse-making pre-emptive Thursday story which appeared on the front page of Friday's print edition. After the Daily News reported the criminal referral recommendation, the Times returned to the matter on Friday evening — and placed their coverage on Page A17 of its Saturday print edition.
Add this to the seemingly endless list of "Imagine what would happen if Republicans or conservatives did the same thing" items.
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary "I don't feel no ways tired" Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio rolled out a very tired, old and insulting racist stereotype this weekend. The headline at Stephanie Condon's report on the related event at CBS News only described it as a "race-based joke." Meanwhile, the Associated Press kept the nature of the "joke" out of its headline, and the wire service's Jonathan Lemire would only concede that "some people feel" that the "comedy skit" in which the pair engaged "was racially insensitive." Here's what happened, from the first four paragraphs of Condon's report (bolds are mine throughout this post):
On Tuesday, all three network morning shows surprisingly hit Hillary Clinton and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for making a “racially charged joke” during a failed comedy skit at a press dinner.
Recapping the liberal media's infatuation and uneasiness with Ted Cruz's "New York values" comment, Fox News Sunday panelist and Washington Post columnist George Will highlighted how Cruz's slogan has had nothing to do with 9/11 but instead how the city's liberal base has recently honored Soviet spies and elected a mayor who used to work for the Sandinistas.
CNN's State of the Union host Jake Tapper scored the lone Sunday morning talk show interview with Hillary Clinton and, unfortunately, Tapper failed to ask her about either Benghazi, the e-mail scandal, or the Clinton Foundation and instead discussed Black Lives Matter protesters, a $15 minimum wage, the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and a contested convention.
As GOP presidential candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke by phone as a guest on Tuesday's special edition of CNN's The Lead, guest host Anderson Cooper quoted the Anti-Defamation League in invoking the imprisonment of Japanese-Americans in "internment camps" as he pressed the Texas Republican over his earlier call for more police engagement in Muslim neighborhoods to preempt terrorism in the U.S.
Last October, after about six months of dawdling, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio finally came out with an endorsement of Hillary Clinton for president. Yet on tonight's Hardball, anchor Chris Matthews made it sound like the mayor probably wishes he had his old campaign-manager job back and was Hillary's "Mickey in the corner" at every debate.
During an interview with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) regarding his efforts to ensure New York City remains safe during heightened security in the wake of ISIS terrorist attacks, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews insisted "the NRA is nondiscriminatory when it comes to who gets guns. They're for everybody getting them, including terrorists."
On Tuesday’s Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough hammered liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for “allowing a homeless epidemic to start spreading across New York again.” The MSNBC host argued that the de Blasio policy of allowing homeless to sleep on the streets was ridiculous just because “some left-winger thinks that this is more humane. No, let them just sleep on grates. No, let them sleep in Central Park where they can get beaten up. I mean, this is misguided liberalism at its worse.”
Mientras Puerto Rico, bajo el liderazgo del socio del Presidente Obama, el gobernador Alejandro García-Padilla (D) ponía en mora los pagos a los acreedores, Univisión transmitió un informe completamente parcializado sobre manifestaciones contra la "austeridad" en frente de una firma de inversiones con sede en Nueva York.
