A senior aide to gun-hating Mayor Bill de Blasio was arrested Saturday night in New York City with an illegal handgun after a routine stop in Queens; reportedly driving around in a 2002 SUV that “reeked of marijuana.”
Reagan Stevens, the 42-year old Deputy Director in the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, was nabbed along with two other individuals as police investigated a nearby shooting.
Local cops noticed the “strong odor of marijuana” emanating from the double-parked vehicle and decided to investigate.
According to the New York Post, the NYC official is involved with the city’s criminal youth initiative and was actively promoting legislation that would raise the age at which children could be charged as adults.
“The gun, which had its serial number scratched off, was loaded with two rounds of ammunition, and a spent round was found on the driver’s side floor,” writes the Post. “Stevens [was] each charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.”
DE BLASIO’S DELUSION: NYC Mayor Bizarrely COMPARES Himself to Gandhi, Edison
Hyper-liberal Mayor of New York City Bill De Blasio went on a self-delusional tirade while commenting on his failed liberal agenda, bizarrely comparing himself to world-renowned leaders and innovators such as Thomas Edison and Mahatma Gandhi.
According to Politico, De Blasio was defending his left-wing policies and agenda when he launched into his bizarre rant; adding that his much-maligned policies that have failed to gain traction in the nation’s biggest city may work on a national scale.
“I want to talk to anyone who thinks that and tell them they need to start thinking more,” said the mayor. “I mean, give me a break. So every time someone tries something and it doesn’t work, it invalidates anything else they might do going forward?”
“Tell Thomas Edison that, and Henry Ford, tell Mahatma Gandhi. How many people fell on their faces along the way trying things, experimenting with things, had setbacks? There’s no leader who hasn’t had setbacks.”
De Blasio’s recent visit to Iowa and other prominent events is raising serious questions over whether the New York politician is planning to enter the national political arena. The Big Apple Mayor easily cruised to re-election this month in New York, defeating Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis by a margin of 66% to 28%.
IT BEGINS: Left-Wing Activists Attack ANOTHER Columbus Memorial in NYC
Vandals attacked yet another Christopher Columbus Statue in New York City this week, spray painting “Don’t Honor Genocide” over the memorial as the nation struggles to respond to a natural disaster unfolding on the Gulf coast.
The criminals attacked the memorial in the Queens section of New York City, defacing the famed explorer’s statue with graffiti that read “Don’t Honor Genocide” and “Take It Down.”
“I’m upset, because I live here all my life, and I don’t like seeing the neighborhood being destroyed – our history. What’s next, George Washington and federal hall?” a woman told a local news station.
This is the fifth such incident in recent weeks that vandals and unidentified assailants have attacked Columbus memorials throughout the country; including Baltimore, Houston, New York, and Buffalo.
The attack comes as the debate over historical landmarks and symbols rages throughout the country, with many left-wing activists calling for the removal of Thomas Jefferson and George Washington statues because of their slave-owning histories.
Hyper-liberal NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio recently stated that the city’s iconic statue of Christopher Columbus in Columbus Circle is currently “under review” to determine if the monument commemorates a “symbol of hate.”
