Hillary for Mayor Flyers Appear in New York City

Free Republic

Some people have a hard time letting go.

With Hillary Clinton‘s most ardent supporters still stewing over her stunning defeat in the 2016 Presidential election, some are taking calls for her to jump into the New York City mayor’s race very seriously. At least one anonymous Clintonite has been posting “Hillary for Mayor” signs at various spots in the Big Apple.

New York City Will Soon Allow Foreigners to Vote, Pushing Citizens Into the Nether Regions

Independent Sentinel

And So It Begins, The Country Within A Country

The New York City Council is drafting a law that will allow noncitizens to vote in New York City’s municipal elections to give clout to immigrants in all races across the five boroughs.

New York City could begin the promise of a Country Within A County with this scheme. They’re claiming it’s democracy to do something that will allow foreigners with an abhorrence of democracy to diminish our democracy.

Instead of citizens deciding issues, foreigners will because there are so many of them in NYC.

To qualify, one only need be a legal immigrant (illegal immigrants are being given amnesty and IDs) and have lived in New York city or one of the boroughs for six months. In other words, you could be a communist from China living here for six months or a Frenchman who hates America, and you would get a vote.

NYC council member Dan Drumm

“I believe that in a democracy, everybody should participate, and I don’t see how you call something a democracy when you don’t give everybody that opportunity to participate,” said Councilman Daniel Dromm, (D-Queens, pictured above), earlier this month. He is pushing the latest effort.

He thinks it’s a democracy if you let foreigners vote in U.S. elections and decide which way New York City will go on every level.

The end result will be foreign influence and it will never be overturned once foreigners get to vote on it.

Once this is in place, we can expect to see no surveillance of suspect groups, communists, fascists, socialists from around the world who live in NYC will get more involved, and citizens will be pushed out of having any voice because there are a heck of a lot of foreigners in New York City and the five boroughs, but that is the goal, isn’t it?

iVote NYC, a coalition of open borders Humanists and their far-left allies are behind the change. The man in charge is a Frenchman who helps run the Humanist Party, in other words, he’s a communist. Communism and Humanism are bedfellows. The Communist Manifesto and the Humanist Manifesto 2, have many overlapping of goals, attitudes and programs. They are ideological twins.

It would make New York City one of only eight jurisdictions in the nation that allows foreigners this kind of power.

One can be sure that our communist mayor will love it.

New York City Schools to Observe Muslim Holidays

Gateway Pundit

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio announced recently that the nation’s largest school system will observe the two most important Muslim holidays.
Today’s Zaman reported:

America’s largest public school system will observe the two most important Muslim holidays starting later this year, a policy change hailed Wednesday by Islamic leaders in New York City.

Under the new policy, the city’s 1.1 million-pupil public school system will close on Sept. 24 for Eid al-Adha, which is also known as the Festival of Sacrifice. The holiday of Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, will be observed during summer school in 2016.

“Hundreds of thousands of Muslim families will no longer have to choose between honoring the most sacred days on their calendar or attending school,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in his announcement.

Muslim leaders welcomed the announcement.

Linda Sarsour, a Muslim community advocate and public school parent who joined de Blasio for the announcement at a school in Brooklyn, said, “This is what New York City is all about – recognition, inclusion and respect.”

Estimates of the number of Muslims living in New York City vary from 600,000 to 1 million.

Community leaders have long urged adding the two Muslim holidays to the school calendar, and the City Council passed a resolution supporting the change in 2009.

Here is the breakdown of religious communities in New York City.

Jewish holidays are already being observed at the city schools.

White flags mysteriously replace American flags on top of Brooklyn Bridge

Free Republic

New York City police Tuesday were investigating how the two American flags that historically sit on top of the Brooklyn Bridge’s 273-foot towers were stolen and replaced with two white flags, which are known universally to symbolize surrender.

The white flags were removed by noon, but police said they are investigating the issue, which may indicate a serious security breach on one of the city’s most secured landmarks.

During Jihadists’ Kenyan Mall Massacre, Jihad Flag Was Flying Proudly Over The Streets Of New York City

Western Journalism

At the same time as devout Muslims were separating Muslim children from non-Muslim children and executing them in cold blood in an upscale mall in Kenya, Muslims marched down Madison Avenue under the flag of jihad (the same flag the Muslims in Kenya were killing under.)

The 10 Worst Regulations of 2012

Heritage

It seems that no aspect of American life can escape government regulation. In the past year, regulators drafted rules that addressed everything from caloric intake to dishwasher efficiency.

Most of these rules increase the cost of living, others hinder job creation, and many erode freedom. Not all regulations are unwarranted, of course, but increasingly, the rules imposed by the government have less to do with health and safety and more to do with whether government or individuals get to make basic pocketbook and lifestyle decisions that affect them. And it is not just the regulators who are to blame. Congress writes laws that give unelected bureaucrats the broad powers they wield.

Today we bring you 10 of the worst regulations from 2012:

Drawing a line in the dust at Ground Zero

Northeast Intelligence Network

26 May 2010: Shortly after efforts turned from rescue to recovery at Ground Zero, I walked amid the rubble with a New York City police officer named “Mark.” It was just after daybreak over lower Manhattan, and the noxious odors of death, jet fuel and oppressive toxic dust still filled the air. We said nothing to each other as we stopped at the edge of a darkly stained area on the ground where bodies had fallen or people had jumped to their deaths. Debris and dust covered over portions of the grotesque paisley patterns that extended beyond yellow police tape that flapped in the morning breeze.

The NYPD officer was first to break the silence. “I remember the first one,” he said, referring to the February 26, 1993 bombing that killed 6 people and injured over a thousand more. “This time it’s going be a whole lot different,” he added.  As we walked away from the area, he said that our response was going to be decisive. America was deeply wounded, but Americans were angry. And it seemed like we were united in our anger.

We were going to fight, prevail, rebuild and grow stronger. Standing there that morning, neither of us had any doubt that our leaders would not just avenge the deaths of 9/11, but take steps to make sure that such an attack would never happen again. We would emerge stronger and smarter.

Why the Ground Zero Mosque Must Be Stopped

American Thinker
Planting a mosque just two blocks from where Muslims murdered Americans on 9/11 in the name of Islam is a huge slap in the face. Why shouldn’t Muslims be sensitive enough to realize that a huge mosque planted right near the horrific wound to the U.S. created at Ground Zero by Muslims is outrageous to us? They claim a right to be insulted by cartoons mocking their prophet, even to the point of beheading people.
The Imam of the Ground Zero Insult, Faisal Abdul Rauf, is not the nice guy he likes to hold himself out to be. At his Friday afternoon khutbah services and in his book What’s Right With Islam Rauf states that he wants the mosque to be a place where inter-faith understanding is fostered. His sonorous voice is smooth and almost hypnotic. His writing style appears to be rational and unthreatening.


However, this does not jibe with the aspects of him that are downright hostile and frightening.

Obama’s Tangled Web

Big Government

by Monica Crowley

Today is Earth Day, so if you haven’t already, sprawl yourself on the ground 
and give Mother Earth a great big hug.  The president and vice president 
decided to mark Earth Day by hightailing it to New York City.  I know: New 
York City isn’t exactly the most logical place to spend Earth Day: acres of 
earth are paved over and under for high rises, streets, and subways.  But 
Earth Day wasn’t the reason they trekked to the Big Apple.  They had another 
reason.  Obama was in Manhattan to deliver a sanctimonious dressing-down of 
Wall Street.    (Biden just came to sit for a hard-hitting interview with 
the ladies of “The View.”)

obama

At the same time Obama was blistering the big banks, we learn that the head 
of the Biggest, Meanest, Greediest Bank, Goldman Sachs, has been to the 
White House at least 4 times for meetings with Obama and his chief economic 
adviser, Larry Summers—WHILE Goldman’s lawyers were negotiating with the 
SEC over civil fraud charges against Goldman.

Now THAT’S weird!  The president who pledged to bring a new kind of politics 
to Washington, stripped of conflicts of interest and lobbying and big money 
and special favors seemingly engaged in all of those things?  At once?!

Say it ain’t so!  Of course, it’s so.  In the immortal words of Obama’s 
former pastor, Jeremiah Wright: “No messiah here, just another politician.”

Obama was on Wall Street today, acting the hypocrite. He went on about the 
damage done by the big banks while he and his White House are up to their 
eyeballs in the big banks.  They love them well enough to take—and 
keep—their money.  They love them well enough to schmooze with their 
Chairmen.  They love them well enough to court their votes.

But in public, they wield the plastic pitchforks in a faux populist kabuki 
dance.  Obama has turned his campaign tagline—”hope and change”—into a 
punchline.  The only problem is that no one is laughing.

To quote Sir Walter Scott:  “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we 
practice to deceive.”
