It’s not very often that we see blue-on-blue attacks (I’m willing to believe they happen far more often than being reported, and this is without counting Manchin’s resistance to Schumer and Sinema being harassed by Leftists), so it’s always quite a joyous sight to see when they do happen.
This time, it’s for a far less significant matter: the race for the next governor of New York in 2022. In all certainty, whoever ends up being the Democrat candidate will end up stealing the election, and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to be the Democrat’s thief (insert New York crime rate joke here).
However, it looks as though he will have trouble getting that spot, as people in his own Democrat Party are not only unconvinced that he would be in any way a good option, but even go so far as to mock the prospect.
Rich Schaffer, chairman of Suffolk County’s Democrat committee told the NYT that “Osama bin Laden is probably more popular in Suffolk County than Bill de Blasio. De Blasio, I would say, would have zero support if not negative out here.”
Would be a bit more impactful had it been from a committee chairman from New York county, the county that Manhattan is from, but still quite the scolding comment to make that the guy officially responsible for the deaths of 3,000 people and destruction of what used to be the city’s most iconic structures would be more popular anywhere in New York than the mayor of NYC. Hyperbole, of course, but it's quite the statement to make. Perhaps a rather offensive one, all things considered, but still.
However, he’s not the only Democrat to be opposed to de Blasio. Most notably, former representative and tax-evader Charles Rangel told the NYT that he didn’t want to “get involved in anything that would be negative” but admitted that he couldn’t think of “anything positive” to say about a potential de Blasio gubernatorial bid.
When even the guy found guilty of 11 ethics charges doesn’t think you’d be a good governor, that says something.
The Times also reported that de Blasio is privately telling people that he plans to run for NY governor, likely to try and see how much such a prospect would garner support:
“Mr. de Blasio, who has been a polarizing figure during his two terms in office, has also sounded our trusted former aides about their interests in working on a potential campaign, according to two people who are familiar with those contacts, and has made other overtures to labor leaders about a possible bid. His longtime pollster conducted a private survey to assess Mr. de Blasio’s appeal beyond New York City.”
And back in September, Politico reported that de Blasio had “phoned several labor leaders in recent days to gauge support.”
But, again, he isn’t exactly getting a whole lot of support from New York Democrats. Even NYC’s DOI recently released a report accusing the mayor of using NYPD security detail like personal servants for himself and his family.
The DOI commissioner Margaret Garnett said in a statement following the report: “Protecting the mayor and his family is a serious and significant job that should be guided by best practices, formalized procedures, and an understanding that security details are not personal assistants in a dignitary’s daily life but provide essential protection.”
De Blasio responded to this, claiming that there were “inconsistencies and inaccuracies” throughout the report, and just made the excuse that his “first responsibility was as a father and as a husband.” Is that what the guy was thinking when his own daughter participated in the George Floyd riots in NYC and got arrested for it?
In any case, it’s really quite telling when even members of his own Democrat Party in NEW YORK are at best not saying anything about it, like Rangel, and at worst are making jokes at his expense, like claiming that Osama bin Laden would be a more popular figure in New York politics than the mayor.
Whether he ends up running and winning the nomination is a different matter entirely (though I’d be willing to bet the NY Democrat Party would Bernie him out of the nomination). But his prospects so far do not appear good, suffice to say.
Either way, I just hope that the corruption, theft and lies in New York will be utterly uncovered and made known to every American so that the Democrats can’t steal further elections.

Dear friend, I wish I could tell you this brilliant plan is mine, but it isn't. The good news is that there are a lot of people out there who love our country and are contributing ideas to save it from the Radical Left.
Before I present the plan below, let me tell you a little bit about the person who actually put this plan together. His name is Wayne Allyn Root, and he is the author of the bestselling book "TRUMP RULES" where he identifies 10 Trump rules that made him one of the biggest winners in history: in Real Estate, in Television, in Branding, in Business, in Politics and in Publishing. And recently Wayne Root wrote on "The Gateway Pundit" a piece called "WAYNE ROOT: The Trump Comeback Begins: The Plan To Make Trump and America Great Again", where he put forth his brilliant plan to have Trump take the GOP from the RINOs and restore our beloved Republic.
In the author's view, with which I completely agree, Trump isn't a loser - yes, in theory he "lost" an election according to RINOs, the Fake News Media and the Democrats, but every rational person paying just a little bit of attention knows this wasn't the case. He didn't lose - it was taken from him. And as we all know, no matter where Trump goes (Will he start a new party? Will he stay in the GOP?), 75+ million people will follow him. So, in reality, Trump is a WINNER. He OWNS the GOP, even if the RINOs haven't figured it out yet. And he OWNS this country, even if the Democrats haven't figured it out yet.
So what's the brilliant plan?
Here it is:
1) Trump becomes the kingmaker of the GOP: as I explained above, Trump really owns the GOP. But Mr. Root substantiates why being out of the White House is actually an ADVANTAGE to accomplish this:
"In some ways, his defeat was empowering. As president, Trump couldn’t get rid of RINOS and 'Never-Trumpers' because he needed their votes. But from the outside, he can remake the party, elect Trump allies, and end the careers of the GOP traitors who stabbed him in the back. Are you listening Liz Cheney? Trump should recruit, endorse and campaign for Trump Republicans in each GOP primary against RINOS, Never- Trumpers and backstabbers. 74 million Trump voters will vote for Trump’s chosen candidates in GOP primaries. By 2022 the GOP will be remade 100% in Trump’s image."
And that's exactly right. Trump couldn't campaign against Mitch McConnell when he was still the President and McConnell was still the Senate Majority Leader. Besides, Mitch's wifey was working in the Trump Administration. It would have been awkward and unwise, politically. But now it's "take no prisoners" time and Trump can freely and openly campaign against each and every one of these RINOs...and remake the GOP in Trump's image...
2) Trump spends the next 4 years fixing voter fraud: in this case, he only needs to focus on the handful of swing states where the vast majority of the problem is found: Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and Nevada. He can do this with the help of his billionaire friends. In Root's own words:
"If Trump spends his time, money and focus on reforming election laws in those six states, the GOP is back in business in 2022 and 2024."
Wouldn't you contribute to such a noble cause?
3) Trump builds his own TMN - "Trump Media Network": it would include a national cable TV network, national talk radio network, a "Trump Report" (his version of the "Drudge Report"), conservative versions of Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, so that we don't have to depend on Silicon Valley anymore. Root adds:
"Only Trump has the money, brand and fundraising ability to change the media and social media landscape like this. And think of the amazing bonus- not only will 74 million Trump voters have permanent places to communicate, but if we all move away from mainstream media and social media, they will collapse. Trump will cripple his enemies and put many of them out of business."
Wouldn't that be beautiful?
4) Trump runs for Congress in 2022: this one is BEAUTIFUL, my friend. Root says:
"Pick any GOP friendly district in Florida, where you’re loved. Primary a RINO who stabbed you in the back. You’ll win the primary by a landslide. Since it’s a GOP district, you’re guaranteed victory in the general election. Once in Congress, with the GOP regaining control in 2022, and most of the candidates loyal to you, you’ll be elected Speaker of the House. From that platform, Trump can lead the impeachment of President Biden"
In my opinion, Trump could do this directly, or have Don Jr run for Congress in 2022 for the same purpose. This way, Jr would have an advantage and more experience if he ever decides to run for President.
I think this is a doable plan - I would support and contribute every step of the way. Take no prisoners!
