BAD APPLES: NY Officials Blame RIDERS for ‘Crowded’ and ‘Smelly’ Subway System

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.21.18

New York officials deflected recent critiques against the nation’s largest subway system this week; publicly blaming riders for “smelly” and “overcrowded” trains and stations that service over five million people per day.

According to the Wall Street Journal, officials at the Metropolitan Transportation Authority are launching a new campaign to inform riders how to improve the massive transit system; urging users to “be patient” and refrain from cramming into already-crowded trains.

“You want reliable transit. We want to give it you,” said MTA subway boss Andy Byford. “You have a part to play in this.”

“That’s ridiculous,” said one subway rider. “What’s causing the delays is their incompetence.”

“Gov. Andrew Cuomo declared a state of emergency last year following a pileup of rush-hour disruptions and a subway derailment that injured dozens. The MTA is spending more than $800 million fixing and cleaning tracks and upgrading signals,” writes the WSJ.

'MAGA' FREE NYC: Manhattan Judge Allows Bars to BAN Trump Supporters

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.26.18

A Manhattan judge ruled this week that bar and restaurant owners could ban patrons from wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ caps and other Trump-supporting apparel; suggesting there’s little protection from “political discrimination” in the nation’s largest city.

According to the New York Post, the judge struck down a tourist’s lawsuit against a West Village bar after he was ejected for wearing the iconic ‘MAGA’ hat; adding freedom of religion does not protect one’s freedoms regarding political statements.

“He was paying spiritual tribute to the victims of 9/11. The Make American Great Again hat was part of his spiritual belief,” said the man’s lawyer. “Rather than remove his hat, instead he held true to his spiritual belief and was forced from the bar.”

“Plaintiff does not state any faith-based principle to which the hat relates,” fired-back the judge.

“Here the claim that plaintiff was not served and eventually escorted out of the bar because of his perceived support for President Trump is not outrageous conduct,” the ruling states.

BUSTED: NYC Mayor Reportedly Used $3M NYPD 'Counter-Terror' Jet to Fly Home from Vacation

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.06.18

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio found himself in hot water this week after he reportedly used a $3 million “counter-terrorism” government plane to fly home from a personal vacation in Canada.

According to the NY Post, de Blasio used the jet to fly from Quebec back to the Big Apple where he was set to deliver in address in the Bronx; returning to the Canadian province later that day.

“NYPD is transporting him in their plane,” de Blasio spokesman Eric Phillips told the Post.

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

“Neither the NYPD nor the Mayor’s Office would say who decided to use the plane, how much the trip cost taxpayers or why the mayor didn’t take a commercial flight — which is about $300 round-trip,” writes the Post.
