Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio left millions of New Yorkers scratching their heads Thursday; totally ignoring the city’s crumbling infrastructure and calling for the creation of global warming “barriers” in lower Manhattan.
“We don’t debate global warming in New York City. Not anymore. The only question is where to build the barriers to protect us from rising seas and the inevitable next storm, and how fast we can build them,” posted the Mayor’s office on social media.
“Over the coming years, we will spend up to $10 billion to extend the downtown waterfront,” he added.

DE BLASIO’S NYC: New York On Brink of Bankruptcy for the FIRST TIME in Over 40 YEARS
New York City is inching closer to financial bankruptcy for the first time in over four decades as experts warn officials of massive public spending and decreased tax revenue as wealthy residents flee to other cities across the country.
“New York City is careening closer to all-out financial bankruptcy for the first time since Mayor Abraham Beame ran the city more than 40 years ago, experts say,” reports the New York Post.
“As tax-fleeced businesses and individuals flee en masse, and city public spending surges into the stratosphere, financial analysts say Gotham is perilously near total fiscal disaster,” adds the article. “Mayor Bill de Blasio is ramping up to spend as much as $3 billion more in the new budget than the current $89.2 billion.”
“The city is running a deficit and could be in a real difficult spot if we had a recession, or a further flight of individuals because of tax reform,” added a leading economist. “New York is already in a difficult financial spot, but it would be in an impossible situation if we had any kind of setback.”

DE BLASIO’S NYC: New Yorkers FUME as City’s Homeless ‘Takeover’ Subway Cars
Residents across the Big Apple unloaded on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio this week; filing countless claims as the city’s homeless population took over subway stations and cars as the region’s temperatures plummet.
“As temperatures plunge, some subway riders say they’re seeing more and more homeless people seeking shelter inside subway cars,” writes CBS New York. “This winter, commuters say the problem has gotten so bad they’re left with no seats to use.”
“Five, 5:30 in the morning… you get in the car… there’s somebody sleeping there. Two, three, four people sleeping in different cars,” said one commuter. “The smell is terrible… Sometimes they defecate on themselves and you have to leave that car.”
