New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio Aims to Follow the Lead of Minneapolis and Remove Police Funding

This will only make the crime situation in his city worse.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to follow the lead of Minneapolis and remove funding from law enforcement at a time when violent mobs are threatening civilization.

“We’re committed to seeing a shift of funding to youth services, to social services, that will happen literally in the course of the next three weeks, but I’m not going to go into detail because it is subject to negotiation and we want to figure out what makes sense,” the mayor said, according to a report from the New York Times published on Sunday.

De Blasio claims that he will figure out the exact terms of the budget cuts to police before the city’s budget deadline on July 1. Hundreds of current and former staffers for de Blasio have signed a letter urging him to cut at least $1 billion from the NYPD’s $6 billion annual budget.

Recently, Black Lives Matter protesters booed de Blasio when he attempted to appear in solidarity with their cause at a rally. They even turned their backs on him in a flagrant sign of disrespect.

“F— the mayor’s curfew!” the unruly mob shouted at de Blasio.

After being humiliated, de Blasio has turned even more sharply against law enforcement. His lax criminal justice policies have already caused a rash of crime throughout the city, even before the race riots began.

Big League Politics has reported on how New York City is quickly becoming a hellscape due to de Blasio’s leadership (or lack thereof):

Since 2019, New York City has experienced a considerable growth in crime.

The Daily Mail reported that major crimes rose by 22.5 percent in February according to NYPD data. This was accompanied by a 7.1 percent increase in shootings, robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto crimes.

According to Fox5, police are blaming criminal justice reforms for this uptick in crime.

Reports indicate that there were 16,343 major crimes reported in the first two months of 2020 compared to 13,648 during the same period in 2019. This marks an increase of 2,695.

During the first 58 days of 2020, 482 people who were previously arrested for committing felonies such as robbery or burglary were arrested again for committing an additional 846 crimes.

35 percent, or 299, of those were arrested for committing the following major crimes: Murder, rape, robbery, felony assault, burglary, grand larceny, and grand larceny auto.

Law enforcement officials claim that all of the suspects who had been arrested would have usually been incarcerated prior to the passage of new bail reform laws.

On January 1, 2020, New York State introduced comprehensive criminal justice legislation, which included the abolition of cash bail for most misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies, such as robbery.

As of now, judges are required to let individuals charged with such crimes go free without cash bail.

Anarcho-tyranny is on the way because of weak leaders like de Blasio who cave to the mob.

New York Young Republicans Threaten to Sue Gov. Andrew Cuomo Following Attacks Against 1st Amendment

They will not bow to Cuomo’s tyranny.

Published

The New York Young Republicans are under fire from the Democrat establishment for planning to hold an in-person event as Gov. Andrew Cuomo is instituting another business-crippling lockdown.

The group is not backing down under fire, as evidenced by a Twitter thread from the group’s president, Gavin Wax. Wax has said that his group will strike back in court if state thugs unduly restrict their 1st Amendment right to organize politically.

Additionally, Wax appeared on the “War Room” podcast to discuss the entire situation on Wednesday:

Big League Politics has covered the New York Young Republican club as they have stood boldly against Cuomo’s persecution of Jewish groups:

A controversial crack down by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio against Hasidic Jews was met with sharp criticism by Gavin Wax, the president of the New York Young Republican Club.

Earlier this week, many Hasidic Jews took to the streets to protest Governor Andrew Cuomo’s new restrictions on schools, businesses, and places of worship in nine neighborhoods with rising Wuhan virus cases.

The New York Young Republican Club criticized the de Blasio government’s “radical and inconsistent enforcement actions” against Jewish worshippers practicing their faith during, Sukkot, an important Jewish holiday.

In a statement it released on October 8, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club asserted that “The rights of all Americans to assemble, whether in religious celebration or protest, cannot and should not be infringed and even in a global pandemic can be observed with the proper safeguards and health awareness.”

The Republican organization called attention to how New York City leadership has messed up political priorities by “allowing extremism from left to continue unabated and un-policed, from blocking streets and bridges to looting and rioting, while not hesitating to condemn and disturb the peaceful exercise of Jews’ religious rites.”

In addition, it argued that “arbitrary application of regulations and safeguards under the guise of public health and safety reeks of selective priority and in a time when so many have died, while some turn to government and progressivism as a religion for comfort, others turn to God and de Blasio should not stand in the way.”

More populist anger is rapidly building against Cuomo and other lockdown proponents who want to replace the Bill of Rights and Constitution with permanent technocracy.

The New York Young Republicans event is scheduled to take place at 6pm tonight in an undisclosed location. The guests of honor will be Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) and journalist James O’Keefe.
