NYC’s Corrupt Mayor De Blasio Used $3 Million Counterterrorism Plane to Fly Home From Canadian Vacation


Democrat Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio

Bill de Blasio, the Communist Democrat Mayor of New York City, used a $3 million counterterrorism plane to fly home from his Canadian vacation Thursday.

The New York Post reported:

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 special sensors that can detect at a distance radioactive material used to make “dirty bombs.”

Police sources questioned the use of a special plane for mayoral transportation.

“It is very unusual to go on an international flight to go pick up the mayor,” one source said.

“I think it’s excessive, because that wasn’t what that plane was designed to do. It’s designed for counterterrorism measures. To go to Canada to get the mayor? It’s excessive.”

De Blasio spox, Eric Phillips insisted this is the first time the NY Mayor used the airplane.

It is also unclear who decided de Blasio could use the airplane or how much it cost taxpayers. Why did he use this plane when a commercial flight costs only about $300.

Bill De Blasio is your typical elitist, corrupt Democrat politician who wastes taxpayer money.

Will he be forced out like Pruitt was? Of course not, De Blasio is a Democrat.

Federal Officers in Riot Gear Move in on ICE Protesters in Portland (VIDEO)

Protesters in Portland have put ICE buildings under siege, blocking and harassing officers coming and going to work.

The ICE protests spread across the nation because of the fake news media’s hysteria over Trump’s lawful immigration policy.

Late Wednesday evening, the President put ICE protesters on notice in a pair of tweets, warning they will be met with LAW AND ORDER.

Law and order is exactly what the malcontents in Portland found very early Thursday morning as Federal officers in riot gear arrived ready to take care of business.

KGW reported:

 Federal officers in riot gear moved into the protest siege of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement headquarters in Southwest Portland at 5:30 a.m. Thursday.

“At approximately 5:30 a.m. today, federal law enforcement officers initiated a law enforcement action to reopen the federal facility at 4310 SW Macadam Avenue in Portland,” Federal Protective Service spokesman Robert Sperling said in a prepared statement.

Officers were clearing the entrance to the building but taking no action against a large number of protesters who have set up a camp along the building.

It’s unclear what happened to people who were camped by the entrance. Several appeared to be taken into custody early on in the police action.

Truckloads of tents, boards, even a couch, were hauled away from the entrance.

The Occupy ICE PDX protest is in its second week. Thursday is the ninth day the Portland ICE office has been closed because of the protests.

KGW reporter in Portland, Tim Gordon is live on scene in Portland and captured the officers in action.

According to Tim Gordon, police have made 8 arrests so far and there are no injuries.

Officers moved in at 5:45 AM PST.

President Trump is Right – Mueller and His Accomplices Are the Most Conflicted Gang in US History!

Guest post by Joe Hoft

President Trump this morning again tweeted about Special Counsel Mueller and his band of angry Democrats in their failed attempt to overthrow the government and protect their many crimes.

The President also tweeted about the attacks from the Mueller team that are based on old and unrelated charges.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The President is correct. However, others on the left, like CNN promote the Mueller team in an undated and interactive post online. Their description of Mueller gangs would lead the casual observer to believe that this is an experienced team full of competent individuals with no clear conflicts of interest. But this is not the case.

What CNN does not share is that the investigation is unconstitutional for many reasons with one of the reasons being that the team is the most conflicted group of investigators and attorneys ever assembled for any investigation in US history.

Below is the list from CNN with additional information not provided by CNN in italics! (Some of which was previously reported.)

President Trump is right. The Mueller team is a crock of conflicted and crooked attorneys and investigators. They are not honest and their lack of independence fully taints the entire investigation. For this alone, the investigation should be shut down.

Trump Puts ICE Protesters and “Extremist Democrats” on Notice “The Only Response They Will Find From Our Govt is LAW AND ORDER!”

President Trump put ICE protesters and “extremist Democrats” on notice late Wednesday evening in a pair of tweets.

The left is completely unhinged; they want open borders, no law and order and to abolish ICE. 

Protesters across the nation have put ICE buildings under siege, blocking and harassing officers coming and going to work.

Antifa anarchists posted pictures, names and locations of ICE officers online to encourage violent protesters to hunt down officials.

A senior DHS official residing in Washington D.C., recently found a decapitated, burnt animal carcass on his doorstep.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) told a mob of cheering Dems to harass and harm members of Trump’s cabinet.

Far left Democrats such as the new Communist darling of the left, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, are calling for ICE to be abolished.

President Trump says this will be met with LAW AND ORDER!

Trump tweeted: In recent days we have heard shameless attacks on our courageous law enforcement officers. Extremist Democrat politicians have called for the complete elimination of ICE. Leftwing Activists are trying to block ICE officers from doing their jobs and publicly posting their…

Donald Trump Jr. Cites Trump Assassination Tweet to Call Out Maxine Waters and Cory Booker for Inciting Hate

Presidential son Donald Trump, Jr. called out Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) for inciting hate, saying their encouragement of hatred will lead to assassinations, using a recent tweet by a Trump-hater to illustrate his point.

“This is what happens when people like Congresswoman Waters and Senator Booker incite and encourage hate. Others will think it’s ok and take it even farther. This is the tolerant left. Make no mistake of that, this is how they feel.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Trump commented over a tweet from June 20 by @KayleighMaaarie that had a GIF of a woman aiming a revolver pointed straight ahead as if to shoot someone, captioned, “I am fucking sick of trump and his minions. Can someone just assassinate him already?!?!?! #trump”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The person holding the gun appears to be a young white woman with brown hair, like the Twitter avatar of Kayleigh. (Secret Service take note.)

That this tweet has remained on Twitter for a week says something about the current state of politics.

Chairman Bob Goodlatte: “FBI Counsel in the Room Instructed Mr. Strzok Not to Answer Many, Many Questions” (VIDEO)

Trump-hating FBI official Peter Strzok was issued a subpoena last week and ordered to appear before the House Judiciary Committee for a deposition Wednesday.

Strzok appeared voluntarily as a way to evade the subpoena and gave a closed-door deposition.

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte said Wednesday evening in an appearance on Fox News that, “Unfortunately the FBI counsel in the room has instructed Mr. Strzok not to answer many, many questions.”

“We’ll be raising questions with the FBI and the Department of Justice why it is that their Counsel is instructing Mr. Strzok not to answer questions,” Goodlatte said.

Goodlatte said the FBI Counsel advising Strzok to refuse to answer pertinent questions is “inappropriate” and “not helpful” to their investigation.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Rep. Ron DeSantis, who attended Strzok’s deposition, told Sara Carter on Wednesday that “It was a waste—Strzok is full of it and he kept hiding behind [the] classified information excuse.”

Strzok also said in the interview he had no political bias and ‘his text exchanges were intimate exchanges between friends’–Rep. Meadows is not buying it!

CNN reporter, Manu Raju said Peter Strzok is still being grilled in the House. Strzok is expected to go to a classified session tonight to discuss the Russia probe.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Peter Strzok was escorted out of the FBI building two weeks ago, however; he is still employed in Human Resources.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a radio interview last Thursday Strzok lost his security clearance.

The House Judiciary also announced Peter Strzok will be publicly testifying soon.

GOP Lawmakers Grill Peter Strzok in Closed-Door Deposition ‘He Kept Hiding Behind the Classified Information Excuse’

Trump-hating FBI official Peter Strzok was issued a subpoena last week and ordered to appear before the House Judiciary Committee for a deposition Wednesday.

Strzok appeared voluntarily as a way to evade the subpoena and gave a closed-door deposition.

GOP lawmakers who attended the deposition spoke with investigative reporter, Sara Carter.

Needless to say, the Reps who spoke with Sara Carter are not happy with how things went with Peter Strzok Wednesday.

Sara Carter reported:

Freedom Caucus & Judiciary Committee member, Matt Gaetz (R-FL) attended today’s deposition and reacted to Strzok’s testimony, telling the Sean Hannity Radio Show, “… I am shocked at the lack of curiosity with Robert Mueller. I mean Sean, if you were in Mueller’s shoes, and you had found these text messages, I would think that you would want to ask whether or not they impacted the investigative decisions that were made, whether there was bias, whether there was contact with other members of the FBI regarding the investigation and where it was going and who was making the critical judgment calls,” the Florida Congressman said. “I just cannot believe the lack of curiosity on the part of Robert Mueller. It was the strongest reaction I had today from Peter Strzok’s testimony.”

Freedom Caucus member, Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL)-who was also in attendance- told SaraACarter.com, “It was a waste—Strzok is full of it and he kept hiding behind [the] classified information excuse.”

Peter Strzok was escorted out of the FBI building two weeks ago, however; he is still employed in Human Resources.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a radio interview last Thursday Strzok lost his security clearance.

We recently found out Peter Strzok sent his mistress Lisa Page a text message saying “we’ll stop” Trump from becoming President.

This text message from Strzok was sent to Page 9 days after “Crossfire Hurricane” was opened and 6 days before the “insurance policy” text.

In another damning text exchange between the FBI lovebirds 6 days after Strzok said he’ll “stop” Trump from becoming President, was a discussion about an “insurance policy” to keep Donald Trump out of office.

“I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office…that there’s no way [Trump] gets elected…but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok text messaged to Page in an Aug. 15, 2016 exchange, referring to Andrew McCabe.

“It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40,” Strzok added.

Rep. Jim Jordan said earlier he’s happy to speak with Peter Strzok first behind closed doors.

Schumer Demands Congress Wait Until After Midterm Elections to Confirm Kennedy Replacement (VIDEO)


Cryin Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY)

On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he will be retiring from the bench at the end of July.

Kennedy, 81, has been a noted swing vote on the court with his decisions often determine the deciding vote on a court split 4 to 4 between liberals and conservatives even though he was considered a conservative, having been appointed by President Reagan in 1987.

President Trump is reportedly choosing Justice Kennedy’s replacement from a list of 25 judges – the same list he chose Justice Neil Gorsuch from last year.

ABC News reported President Trump’s teams intends to push to get a nominee to replace Anthony Kennedy confirmed before the midterm elections.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer immediately pushed back on Trump’s plan to get his nominee to replace Justice Kennedy confirmed before the midterm elections.

Schumer demanded Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) abide by the ‘Biden Rule’ when deciding to confirm a Supreme Court Justice.

The ‘Biden Rule’ essentially calls for confirmations to be halted during an election year.

McConnell cited the ‘Biden Rule’ when deciding not to consider Obama’s nominee, Merrick Garland, before the 2016 election. Thankfully, McConnell opened the door for Justice Neil Gorsuch to be nominated by President Trump.

The Republicans should not acquiesce to the Democrats’ demands. Confirm President Trump’s next Justice nominee as soon as possible.

Schumer laughably said if the Senate confirms a Justice during the election year, it would be the “height of hypocrisy.”

Presidential election years are different from midterm election years. Obama’s second SCOTUS nominee, Elena Kagan was confirmed in August of 2010, an election year.

‘Black Activist’ Posts Assassination Threat to POTUS: “The American People Shouldn’t Allow Trump to Nominate Another Justice By Any Means Necessary”


Samuel Sinyangwe Twitter avatar

On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he will be retiring from the bench at the end of July.

The liberals immediately melted down over the idea of President Trump choosing another conservative Justice to the Supreme Court.

“Black activist,” Samuel Sinyangwe, called for President Trump to be assassinated on Wednesday from his bluecheck verified Twitter account.

Sinyangwe said, “The Supreme Court is too important. It’s everything. The American people should not allow Trump to nominate another justice. By any means necessary.”

The radical “black activist” has since deleted his tweet, however, we have a screenshot (below)

Samuel Sinyangwe’s bio on the website ourstates.org reads:

 Samuel Sinyagwe, 27, is a policy analyst and data scientist who works with communities of color to fight systemic racism through cutting-edge policies and strategies. Samuel co-founded Mapping Police Violence to support activists across the country to collect and use data to fight police violence and co-founded Campaign Zero to advocate for local, state, and federal policy solutions to end police violence. Samuel has been featured on MSNBC, CNN, BBC, LA Times, the Forbes 30 under 30 and The Root 100.

He grew up in Orlando, FL and graduated from Stanford University in 2012, where he studied how race and racism impact the U.S. political system.

Ourstates is dedicated to ‘Blocking Trump’s agenda’:

Radical Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson is listed as one of Ourstate’s activists: 

Sinyangwe describes himself as a “Black activist, Data Scientist & Policy Analyst. Stanford Alum. Co-Founder, Campaign Zero | Mapping Police Violence “

On Wednesday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he will be retiring from the bench at the end of July.

The liberals immediately melted down over the idea of President Trump choosing another conservative Justice to the Supreme Court.

“Black activist,” Samuel Sinyangwe, called for President Trump to be assassinated on Wednesday from his bluecheck verified Twitter account.

Sinyangwe said, “The Supreme Court is too important. It’s everything. The American people should not allow Trump to nominate another justice. By any means necessary.”

The radical “black activist” has since deleted his tweet, however, we have a screenshot (below)
