DEVELOPING: Pressure Cookers Shut Down NYC Morning Commute

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.16.19

A pair of abandoned pressure cookers effectively shut-down New York City’s busy morning commute Friday; raising major security concerns before the NYPD confirmed they posed no risk to the public.

“A pair of suspicious rice cookers shut down a subway station in Lower Manhattan on Friday morning — but the NYPD’s Bomb Squad later determined they were not explosives, authorities said,” reports the New York Post. “Another cooker was found near a garbage can in Chelsea just over an hour later. It was determined safe just after 9:40 a.m., according to cops.”

“I want everyone to know nothing of danger has been found and there’s no indication of any further activity,” said New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“This is the classic if-you-see-something-say-something, but based on everything we know right now we have an all-clear,” he added.

“It’s good that they’re taking all these precautions but it seems like it was deemed safe so I think we’re a little anxious to get back to our day,” said one resident.

DE BLASIO ROCKED: Firefighters, EMS Unions TRASH De Blasio over Pay Inequality Throughout NYC

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.10.19

Unions representing Big Apple firefighters and Emergency First Responders slammed Mayor Bill De Blasio Wednesday; saying the NYC leader was playing politics by calling for “pay equality” for the Women’s Soccer Team while failing to acknowledge the problem in his own administration.

“While Mayor de Blasio uses this victory parade to grab attention for his presidential run and advocate against pay inequality, the first responders of FDNY EMS are victims of that same inequity,” said a statement from the unions.

“The difference in salaries after five years is tens of thousands of dollars,” the statement added. “The women’s national team deserves equal pay, but so do the hardworking EMTs and paramedics who save lives routinely and who the mayor has ignored.”


De Blasio spoke during New York’s victory parade honoring the US Women’s Soccer Team following their World Cup victory.

“This team has shown an undeniable truth, an inalienable right, the equality of women must be guaranteed in this nation,” de Blasio said.

The mayor was hit with a similar complaint by the NYPD union after the Democratic debate.

“History repeats itself. @BilldeBlasio said he wants to bring cops and community together. Ask any cop on the street what impact his divisive rhetoric has had #DemDebate https://twitter.com/billdeblasio/status/1144068770249531392 …,” posted the official Twitter account of the New York City Police Benevolent Association.

“We’re working hard to get guns off the street @BilldeBlasio. You must have been too busy to go to the last Compsat meeting because SHOOTINGS ARE UP 9.7%. ‘Safest Big City’ in the country doesn’t feel that way to many especially in Brooklyn,” added the PBA.

“The hostile and dangerous environment we now face on the street is a direct result of demonization of cops by de Blasio and other elected officials,” concluded the statement.

DE BLASIO ROCKED: Former NYPD Boss Slams ‘Disgraceful’ De Blasio’s Attitude Towards Police

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.19

Former NYPD Chief Louis Anemone slammed Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio Monday; calling the presidential hopeful’s attitude towards police “disgraceful” after footage emerged showing cops assaulted with water in recent weeks.

“He’s the chief executive of this city of New York, the largest city in this country. He has not taken the lead for security, for public security, and for supporting the police. He’s been behind, way behind,” Anemone said.

“He does not have their back. I firmly believe firmly that he does not have their back,” he added.

President Trump weighed-in on the controversy last week, writing “We love our Law Enforcement Officers all around this great Country. What took place in NYC with water being tossed on NYPD officers was a total disgrace. It is time for @NYCMayor @BilldeBlasio to STAND UP for those who protect our lives and serve us all so well.”

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani blasted Bill de Blasio last Monday after footage emerged of local teens dousing NYPD officers with buckets of water; saying this “disrespect” for uniformed police never would have happened on his watch.

“This disrespect for the uniform in NYC is result of a Democrat-Progressive (Retrogressive)-Socialist Mayor. This is what happens with knee-jerk disrespect for police. It will only get worse until these Left wing idiots are defeated,” posted Giuliani on social media.

Footage shows separate incidents of people in Harlem using buckets to splash and dump water over uniformed officers, as the cops calmly walk away. De Blasio condemned the acts as ‘Completely unacceptable,’ and said, ‘We won’t tolerate this kind of disrespect.’ Still, former mayor Giuliani believes the 2020 presidential candidate is part of the problem,” reports Fox News.

“Our anti-cop lawmakers have gotten their wish: the NYPD is now frozen. It’s not the fault of these police officers. It’s the end result of the torrent of bad policies and anti-police rhetoric that has been streaming out of City Hall and Albany for years now,” said PBA President Patrick Lynch, adding, “Disorder controls the streets, and our elected leaders refuse to allow us to take them back.”
