Does Curtis Sliwa have a chance

Does Curtis Sliwa have a chance to be the next mayor of New York City?

By David Zukerman

The media claim that the Democrat candidate who wins Tuesday’s primary will be the heavy favorite to be New York City’s next mayor, and the Republican candidate is not expected to put up much of a fight.  See this analysis from CNN:

The Democratic mayoral nominee is expected to be determined by mid-July and, with Republicans barely putting up a fight, is heavily favored to win the general election in November.

But Curtis Sliwa, the Republican candidate, may well fool the anti-GOP media (and the media are as much anti-Republican as they are anti-Trump.)

The vote total, with the bulk of precincts (84%) reporting, would indicate that whoever is the Democrat mayoral candidate is a shoo-in next November.  Eric Adams, Brooklyn borough president and a former police captain, leads Maya Wiley, a leftist in the mold of AOC, with some 255,000 votes (32%) to 178,000 (22%).  Kathryn Garcia is third with 156,000 (19.5%).

These numbers are not impressive, considering New York City’s population of some 8 million people, but they are huge, considering the puny vote in the Republican mayoral primary.  Guardian Angels founder and radio personality Curtis Sliwa trounced Fernando Mateo, 37,000 (72%) to 14,400 (28%).  When complete totals are in, it is doubtful that the two Republicans will draw more than 100,000 votes.  By these numbers, the outlook should be bleak for the moribund Republican Party in the City of New York.

Yet who is likely to be perceived by the public to be the law and order/quality of life candidate: any Democrat or Curtis?

Consider, too, that many “Democrats” are Democrats only for the purpose of voting in the Democrat primary, convinced that the Democrat primary determines the November winner.  Maybe Curtis will get their votes.  After all, Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg won Gracie Mansion under the GOP brand.

These “Democrats” know that under the Democrat leadership of Bill de Blasio, law and order and quality of life have become huge problems.  Almost by definition, Democrats by their “defund the police” clamor have become the “don’t bother with crime” party, and as for quality of life as an issue, just walk down Broadway and take note of the homeless people on the sidewalks of the West Side, or ride the subways and note the resurgence of poor people asking for handouts, or be subjected to harangues by self-appointed evangelists, or see “gymnasts” doing acrobatics on the overhead bars in subway cars, or check out the break-dancers in the cars, or the trios serenading with discordant melodies.  To ride the New York subways under this Democrat administration is to be afflicted with various forms of imposed entertainment.

Curtis Sliwa might well be something of a character, but he knows New York City, he knows its problems — he knows that the Republican Party is moribund in the city, which needs an Augean Stables–type cleaning.  It is to be expected that Heavy Underdog Sliwa will campaign vigorously in all five boroughs of the City of New York.

Indeed, it is to be expected that as the Republican candidate, he will remind us old-timers of the invigorating mayoral campaign of John V. Lindsay, in 1965, 56 years ago.

House Republican Conference chairwoman Elise Stefanik, who is from upstate New York, should volunteer to be a huge booster of Sliwa for mayor and get the national GOP to rally round to support Sliwa, too.  Why should Republicans continue to concede the country’s urban areas to Democrat misrule?

New York City deserves a two-party system.  For too long, city GOPers have done little more than serve as supplicants to the ruling Democrats, thankful for whatever crumbs were thrown their way.  Curtis Sliwa, as mayor, would not only lead the city in combating the current slide to woke-ism, but establish a Republican Party where it doesn’t exist at present.  That was something the faux Republican mayor Michael Bloomberg had no interest in doing.

Curtis Sliwa, is, quite simply, a true man-of-the-people candidate.  Let the banner of conservative populism be raised in the Big Apple; let the politically unthinkable become thinkable with Sliwa for mayor.

It’s Beginning to Look Like Enemy Action

It’s Beginning to Look Like Enemy Action

By John Green

Dong Jingwei is a Chinese defector working with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). He served as Vice Minister of State Security in the Chinese Ministry of Defense.  Before defecting, he was responsible for the counterintelligence efforts in China.  He was in a position to know about all things “espionage” in China and is perhaps the highest-level Chinese defector the U.S. has ever had.  Even though the legacy media is playing it down, this is a big deal.

It speaks volumes that the man who knows the identity of all the Chinese spies in our country chose to defect to the DIA and only the DIA.  Further, it’s reported that the DIA is not sharing the information it’s receiving with the FBI or CIA.  Now, why would that be? …

Trump: Biden-Putin Meeting

Trump: Biden-Putin Meeting a ‘Good Day for Russia’ — ‘We Gave a Very Big Stage to Russia, and We Got Nothing’

Wednesday, during an interview with FNC host Sean Hannity, former President Donald Trump gave his successor President Joe Biden low marks for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland earlier in the day.

According to Trump, although Putin got to be on the world stage alongside the U.S. president, Biden got nothing in return.

“Let’s start with the events today and your overall thoughts,” Hannity said. “And I want you to address — I will get to a very specific question, but, first, let’s start with your overall thoughts today and what Biden was facing in Putin. And then we will move on from there.”

“Well, I guess the overall is, we didn’t get anything,” Trump replied. “We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing. We gave up something that was unbelievably valuable. I stopped the pipeline, Nord Stream. And that pipeline was stopped. And it was given back, and nothing was gotten for it. And it was just — it was another day. And performance art, you will take a look at how various people performed, namely, the two people. And, you know, you have to form your own judgment. It’s not for me to say. But I will say that it was — I think it was a good day for Russia. I don’t see what we got out of it.”

The FBI’s role in the Jan. 6 Capitol fracas

The FBI’s role in the Jan. 6 Capitol fracas is absolutely disgusting

By J.B. Shurk

Do you remember how conservatives went out of their way to separate rank-and-file FBI agents from the corrupt actions of Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Bill Priestap, James Baker, James Rybicki, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and others as more evidence came to light revealing that the top brass at the bureau had worked to create an “insurance policy” that could be used to overthrow President Trump from office?  Writers and television pundits would always couch any criticism of the bureau in some respectful language like “we’re only talking about high-ranking officials here, not the FBI, itself, which is filled with the best agents in the world who are always looking out for America.”

I think we can dispense with the overly protective pleasantries at this point.  The FBI is a goon squad of un-American thugs who have taken the worst elements of East Germany’s Stasi police state and Cosa Nostra‘s organized crime and turned them into a blueprint for exercising and keeping illegitimate power over their enemies.  They aren’t a law enforcement organization, and they certainly don’t give a rat’s rear end about justice.  They’re regime enforcers with badges. …

G-7 members laugh at Biden

G-7 members laugh at Biden as he insists on introducing a guest who already was introduced

By Thomas Lifson

Yesterday, at the G-7 meeting, President Biden said twice in a row, “America is back at the table,” in an unsubtle dig at President Trump.  He forgot to add that the other people at the table were laughing at him.

Dementia Joe interrupted U.K. prime minister Boris Johnson as he was presiding over a session where visitors were being introduced and insisted on adding the president of South Africa — who had already been introduced.  P.M. Johnson maintained a calm voice but was clearly annoyed, as this transcript from TGP shows:

Boris Johnson: And welcome to those who just joined us… President Ramaphosa (South Africa), President Moon (South Korea)…

Joe Biden: And the President of South Africa.

Boris Johnson: And the President of South Africa as, as, as I said.

Joe Biden: Oh, you did?

Boris Johnson: I certainly did. [emphases added]

Here is video, in which laughter can be heard from the other heads of government of the richest countries.


I am certain that the agitprop media will bury this story, and most Americans will never know that their leader is an object of derisive laughter from his near peers.  Based on his goofy facial expression as the laughter erupted, it’s not even clear that Joe knows that, either:

Needless to say, had President Trump done such a thing, the headlines would dominate the news for a week, and talk of the 25th Amendment would be front and center, along with worries that the standing of the United States internationally had plummeted to laughingstock levels.

Make China Pay for COVID Now

Cotton: Make China Pay for COVID Now by Revoking Visas, Most-Favored-Nation Status

On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) argued that the United States should start punishing China for the coronavirus pandemic now and suggested revoking China’s permanent most-favored-nation status, hurting the financing terms they get from international financial institutions, and revoking visas from CCP members and their children so they can’t educate their children at American schools.

Cotton stated, “China’s chances of ever conceding that they’re responsible for this virus is zero. But that new report from the Lawrence Livermore Lab just confirms what I’ve been saying from the very beginning, just use your common sense. This virus emerged in a city larger than New York, just a few blocks down the road from the lab where they research these viruses. Every bit of evidence we have points to those labs. And it’s past time to hold China accountable for their negligence and their deceitfulness in unleashing this plague on the world. There [are] lots of things we could do. We could revoke their permanent most-favored-nation status, a bad mistake that we made twenty years ago. We could team up with our allies and take back the very favorable financing terms they get from international financial institutions like the World Bank. We could take away visas from Chinese Communist Party members and their kids so they can’t send their kids to American schools anymore. There’s no end to the things we can do to make China pay for unleashing this plague and we should start right now.”

He later added, “Why should we be subsidizing America’s higher education institutions when they turn around and accept the princeling kids of all these Chinese communists?”

Hunter Biden spews the ‘n-word’

Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden spews the ‘n-word’

By Monica Showalter

Joe Biden, who of late has been putting on his anti-racism skin suit, and lecturing America about all its past racial transgressions, declaring America no better today than its Jim Crow era, ought to take a closer look at what’s going on at home.

According to the Daily Mail:

Hunter Biden used the n-word multiple times in conversation with his white, $845-per-hour lawyer, his texts messages reveal.

The shocking texts may prove embarrassing for his father President Joe Biden, who just last week gave a speech decrying racism on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa massacre, and has sought to portray racial justice as a top priority for his administration.

The president’s son joked in a January 2019 text to corporate attorney George Mesires about a ‘big penis’, and said to the lawyer: ‘I only love you because you’re black’ and ‘true dat n***a’.

So Joe, who lectured Americans about a century-old racist massacre in Oklahoma and called it emblematic of America’s systemic racism today, somehow has a kid he calls “the smartest man I know” who spews the ‘n-word’? And based on the fuller report in the Daily Mail, even his lawyer seems to be disgusted?

Imagine if Don Trump, Jr. or Ivanka Trump wrote emails like that? What would the press be like if something like that happened and it got out? Right now the press is sleepy, while untold cancel-culture canceling goes on for far less racist activities, such as wearing blackface at a party in a bad Halloween costume, or telling another professor that black students tend to get lower grades, or making some high-school-aged racist trash talk to shock one’s little friends on a private student bulletin board and years later, getting one’s Harvard admission rescinded because of it, as happened to Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv. Anyone who does such stuff without political connections is canceled quickly. But Hunter? Well, he’s got a book deal and an art gallery show, as well as his ChiCom and other board seats ungiven-up, profiting handsomely as the beautiful people fawn. Nobody’s talking about canceling him for this dreck.

Yet the fact of the matter remains that only disgusting people talk like that, flaming racists, for starters. It’s also done by spoiled, rich, entitled lordlings and princelings. The last white person I can recall who did that was hotel heiress and party gal Paris Hilton, circa 2007, between one of her jailings for dissolute behavior. She, however, had to abjectly apologize. In Hunter’s case, with his history of drinking, drugs, and wenching, no apologies seem forthcoming. He also seems to be a high consumer of gangsta rap music, where such language is used, in the same kinds of slangy contexts, which is triply disgusting, since the 51-year-old son of the president is kind of old for it, even when he was 48, which is when he was making these racist texts.

It just goes to show the humongous sense of entitlement seen in Biden’s middle-aged son, who feels free to use the ‘n-word’ around his lawyer, as easily as if it were something he grew up with. Normal people don’t use that word, because they don’t have any sort of society around them that might give it a thumbs-up. Hunter, though, doesn’t have that kind of inhibition. Someone has always enabled him in such language, and that’s why he used such words facilely. One wonders what kind of talk this overgrown kid was exposed to growing up in the Biden household as Joe praised Democrat former Klansman-turned Senator Robert Byrd.

The Bidens ought not to be allowed in any polite company for this kind of language. They ought to be pariahs. But being Democrats, they have their get-out-of-racism-free cards, and incredibly, still have the nerve to lecture the rest of us.

Biden Suspension of Arctic Oil Leases

AK Gov. Dunleavy: Biden Suspension of Arctic Oil Leases ‘Irrational’

Wednesday, during an appearance on FNC’s “Your World,” Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R-AK) criticized President Joe Biden’s decision to suspend oil and gas leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Dunleavy called it illogical and irrational.

“No surprise,” he said of the decision. “But it doesn’t — it’s illogical. It’s irrational. It doesn’t make any sense. The whole idea that you’re going to stop climate change by shutting down leases in the Arctic in Alaska. It’s just going to push this opportunity overseas. And that’s what this — I’m being serious, Neil. That’s what this administration seems to be all about is canceling opportunity, canceling oil leases in the Arctic, canceling offshore oil leases.”

“It’s going to drive the cost up,” Dunleavy continued. “I mean, oil is, what, $70 a barrel now. And it’s going to push these opportunities overseas, and it’s going to push them into places that don’t have the environmental protections that the United States has and Alaska has. So, no matter how we look at it, when we actually sit down and we have these discussions, no matter how we look at it. It’s a lose-lose-lose across the board, not just for Alaska, not just for this country, for some of these environmentally sensitive areas across the globe that don’t have the protections. It makes zero sense.”
