NYC Mayor-Elect Vows To Restore Anti-Crime Units Despite BLM Threats

Democrat New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams has promised to bring back the city’s anti-crime units the day after the plan caused leaders of New York City’s Black Lives Matter group to threaten “riots” and “bloodshed”

Adams appeared on CNN on Thursday vowed to restore the anti-crime units despite the violent threats from the BLM leaders.

“I made it clear on the campaign trail: I’m going to put in place not the Anti-Crime Unit, I’m going to put in place a plainclothes gun unit,” Adams said, according to The New York Post. “This is what I’m going to do. That was my promise and I’m going to keep it.”

During a press conference later that day, Adams explained, “This city is not going to be a city of riots, it’s not going to be a city of burning.”

“This is going to be a city where we are going to be safe. We are going to have effective policing that is not heavy-handed. We’re going to have the backs of our police officers, we’re going to hold them accountable to do their job,” Adams said. He then discussed BLM, saying, “It’s ironic that at no time did that small fringe group talk about the gun violence that is destroying our city.”

The anti-crime units were disbanded last year in response to the Black Lives Matter riots and calls to “defund” police departments. The city then saw a spike in violent crime.

After a closed-door meeting between Adams and BLM leaders on Wednesday, the group threatened “riots” and “bloodshed” Adams restored the NYPD’s anti-crime units.

“If he thinks that they’re going to go back to the old ways of policing, then we are going to take to the streets again. There will be riots, there will be fire and there will be bloodshed because we believe in defending our people,” said Hawk Newsome, co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York.

“So there is no way that he is going to let some Gestapo come in here and harm our people,” Newsome told the New York Daily News. “We pray for peace but … prepare for the worst.”

Newsome’s sister added: “We will shut the city down. We will shut down City Hall, and we will give him hell and make it a nightmare.”

    80% of all violent crime is committed by Blacks. Black Lives Matter is nothing more than a Black domestic terrorist/anarchist organization. If they don’t get their way, they’ll riot, loot, burn and kill. It’s been their successful M.O. since Fentanyl Floyd OD’d. NYC, Chicago, Minneapolis, LA,San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, etc., all those Democrat run SH cities are seething with Black violent crime and BLM couldn’t be happier.

    So if they are making blatant threats like this, then why are these criminals still being allowed to walk free. They threatened a duly elected public official and all the upstanding citizens of that city that obviously have seen that defending the police does not work and are done with the lawlessness and chaos that BLM’s Marxist beliefs bring. So again, why are they not in cuffs? Why are they still not being labeled and put on the domestic terrorist list?

    BLM needs to be jailed for making terrorists threats against law abiding citizens and law enforcement. They are domestic terrorists, it’s time to treat them that way

    “NYC Mayor-Elect Vows To Restore Anti-Crime Units Despite BLM Threats”

    “[L]eaders of New York City’s Black Lives Matter group to threaten “riots” and “bloodshed.”

    Making such threats sounds a whole lot like extortion — a crime. Why haven’t those creeps been charged?

CNN Suspends Chris Cuomo ‘Indefinitely, Pending Further Evaluation’

Published

On Tuesday, CNN suspended Chris Cuomo “indefinitely, pending further evaluation” after new information was revealed detailing the help he gave his brother ex-Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo in handling numerous sexual misconduct allegations.

“Chris Cuomo was actively in touch with Melissa DeRosa, who was the then-governor’s top aide, about incoming media reports that detailed alleged sexual harassment by Andrew Cuomo, according to exhibits from the Attorney General’s probe and a transcript of his interview with the state’s investigators,” CNBC reported. “He also lobbied to help the governor’s office as it sought to weather the storm of accusations, and he dictated statements for the then-governor to use.”

“Please let me help with the prep,” Chris Cuomo asked DeRosa in a message in from early March. Then, three days after a New York Times report from March explained how Andrew Cuomo attempted to forcefully kiss a woman, Anna Ruch, at a wedding, Chris Cuomo texted DeRosa, “I have a lead on the wedding girl.”

Quickly after the new was publicized, CNN issued a comment saying they would be reviewing the information.

“The thousands of pages of additional transcripts and exhibits that were released today by the NY Attorney General deserve a thorough review and consideration,” CNN spokesman Matt Dornic said. “We will be having conversations and seeking additional clarity about their significance as they relate to CNN over the next several days.”

After reviewing, CNN announced Chris Cuomo’s suspension a statement, saying, “The New York Attorney General’s office released transcripts and exhibits Monday that shed new light on Chris Cuomo’s involvement in his brother’s defense. The documents, which we were not privy to before their public release, raise serious questions.

When Chris admitted to us that he had offered advice to his brother’s staff, he broke our rules and we acknowledged that publicly. But we also appreciated the unique position he was in and understood his need to put family first and job second. However, these documents point to a greater level of involvement in his brother’s efforts than we previously knew. As a result, we have suspended Chris indefinitely, pending further evaluation.”

In August, Andrew Cuomo resigned after an independent investigation found he had “sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees.”

The former New York governor’s scandal began in December 2020, when the first of 11 women accused him of sexual misconduct. The victims, who were mostly his employees, said Cuomo engaged in sexually aggressive behavior including nonconsensual kissing, groping, inappropriate invitations to play strip poker and comments about their sex lives.

The investigation found that “the Governor sexually harassed a number of current and former New York State employees by, among other things, engaging in unwelcome and nonconsensual touching, as well as making numerous offensive comments of a suggestive and sexual nature that created a hostile work environment for women.”

The investigation additionally “revealed that the Governor’s sexually harassing behavior was not limited to members of his own staff, but extended to other State employees, including a State Trooper on his protective detail and members of the public.” It concluded that Cuomo created a culture “filled with fear and intimidation, while at the same time normalizing the Governor’s frequent flirtations and gender-based comments” which “contributed to the conditions that allowed the sexual harassment to occur and persist.”

Biden Not Planning To Visit Victims Of Black Supremacist Attack In Wisconsin

Published

Joe Biden

During Monday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that President Joe Biden has no plans to visit the victims of the black supremacist attack on a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, that occurred last week after the announcement of the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict.

“Since the President said that this administration is monitoring the situation in Waukesha closely, it has been revealed by prosecutors that the assailant — the assailant swerved his truck side to side as part of an intentional act to run over as many people as possible,” a reporter said. “Six people are dead. Some children remain hospitalized.”

“Why hasn’t the President visited the members of this Christmas parade attack?” the reporter asked.

“Well, I would say first: As you saw the President convey last week, our hearts go out to this community, to the people in Waukesha; that we’ve been in touch, obviously, with officials there; and we’re all watching as people are recovering. And this is such a difficult time of year for this to happen. It’s a difficult anytime,” Psaki said. “Obviously, any President going to visit a community requires a lot of assets, requires taking their resources, and it’s not something that I have a trip previewed at this plan- — point in time, but we remain in touch with local officials. And certainly, our hearts are with the community as they’ve gone through such a difficult time.”

 

Last week, a man was accused of driving a red SUV through a Christmas parade in Wisconsin. The man had numerous posts on his social media expressing support for Black Lives Matter and “black nationalist rhetoric” along with disdain for Republican politicians and conservative media.

“A lone subject intentionally drove his maroon SUV through barricades into a crowd of people that was celebrating the Waukesha Christmas Parade which resulted in killing five individuals and injuring 48 additional individuals,” city police chief Dan Thompson said at a press conference. “I just received information that two of the 48 are children and they’re in critical condition.”

The online news outlet Heavy revealed that the suspect “posted anti-police rhetoric” and “black nationalist rhetoric” on social media. He also “posted a photoshopped fake image of former Republican Governor Scott Walker as a Nazi.”

One Twitter user posted a list of some of the suspect’s now-deleted Facebook posts, which showed extremist support for BLM.

The suspect also has a long criminal history, having “been charged with or convicted on an array of charges over the past 22 years, including battery, domestic violence, cocaine possession and resisting arrest in several jurisdictions in Wisconsin,” The New York Times reported. “He has served at least two jail sentences and spent years on probation and in court-mandated work-release and anger management programs.”
