Jetsetting Bill!


From CBS 2:

Mayor Bill de Blasio is facing criticism for using the NYPD’s $3 million counterterrorism plane to shuttle him to and from his Canadian vacation for a street renaming in the Bronx.

“This is a bad use of resources. God forbid there’s an emergency somewhere in the city that needs this vehicle, and we have a big problem,” Joe Giacalone, a former NYPD sergeant, told CBS2’s Political Reporter Marcia Kramer.

Giacalone said it’s unusual to turn the sophisticated plane, which is outfitted with sensitive radiation sensors, into a commuter airline for one.

“This is something that I find very strange,” he said.

Data from the flight tracker website Flight Aware shows the Cessna Caravan left its hangar at MacArthur Airport and flew to Montreal, where it picked up the mayor at 9:09 a.m. Wednesday, then landed at Westchester County airport at 10:58 a.m. De Blasio was driven to a street renaming in honor of slain NYPD Det. Miosotis Familia, then back to the airport for the return trip to Canada, landing at 3:34 p.m., records show.

A City Hall spokesperson first directed questions to the NYPD, then said, “We don’t have a comment on the plane.”

See? THIS is the Leninist collectivist mindset: the dictator of the proletariat gets to fly top class while the proles get to ride bicycles. Long live the revolution! And Heil deBlasio! Maybe Socialist comrade Bernie Sanders will invite deB to stay at one of his 2 dachas in Vermont on the way home?

Looks like de Faustio is taking a page from former EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt in this abuse of tax payer dollars for personal use, which falls in line with his past profligate spending to pay off his attorneys for his aborted trial hearings on slush fund PAC fund raising in city hall.

The real story is the fact that the NYPD has a spy plane when they have a fleet of choppers with the same capabilities. The money for this stupid plane, which the city bought last year by the way, could have went to bulletproof the command post windows Det. Familia was sitting in.

LMAO!!

Each one: jet setting, campaign contributors in jail, lead paint scandal, Rivington nursing home scandal, etc. is another nail in the hopes for DeBlasio for President!

Yet its still not enough to stop him from going forward in NYC.

Well GTA it looks like Comrade Deblasshole did visit Bernies Dacha.

Missing the point here. He's still mayor and fucking us up.

There's a story that Soviet leader Brezhnev once had a relative visiting him from the countryside, and he took the opportunity to show off his palatial official home in Moscow, and his luxurious country retreat. The relative was very impressed and said: "you are really doing very well, cousin Brezhnev, but what's gonna happen when the revolution comes?"

Please go ahead and ask DeBassio if he gives a shit about what we think about this abuse of power??
I think that I already know the answer.

@Gary W:

Yes indeed! Check it out HERE.

The Collectivist Playbook in action!!! What? Sunbathing on a collectivist Nycha roof is not good enough for him? Bathing in a collectivist municipal pool as well? How 'bout watery soup and a day-old banana at the collectivist senior center?

Living high off the hog these Collectivist Commissars, no? Bookmark that NY Post "deBlasio and missus in a canoe" photo and show it to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Remember this historical FACT: Communism = death by murder. Socialism = death by suicide

Maybe Trump can give him a post in the cabinet.

Glad I didnt vote for mayor dumbdumb! These idiot liberals got what they voted for! What a corrupt dummy this man is!

I guess this vile commie b____, so steeped in corruption, couldn't take ground transportation since most of NYC's streets are full of potholes, huge waves in the asphalt, and have the lane markings worn away. So, he HAD to take plane, see? Too bad it didn't crash while he was aboard, sparing us from any more of him.

There were other long flights made in that plane but no information is available as to the purpose of those flights were or who was inside the aircraft. HMMM !!!

The REVOLUTION will not be televised! Who are the profligate, wanton wasteful shitheads who gave that tall, ugly F**K the clearance to abuse We, the People's money with impunity? Remember when terminal fathead Chris Christie abused his power by taking a state owned helicopter to see his son's baseball game, was caught, and then had to cough up $2,500 to pay for the theft of services? Well, what is everyone waiting for with de BLASS-hole? Where are the 'LAMESTREAM' media to demand reimbursement? IS EVERYTHING CROOKED and CORRUPT in New York State government?

Look at that: I just answered my OWN question, knowing who is at the helm of destroying Albany in the Executive Chamber: 'Gargoyle Andy' Cuomo (of the dynastic Cuomo scourge), where the corruption, graft and greed is getting worse by the hour (and where, as frightening as it sounds, the corruption of THIS disgraced and derelict administration at City Hall PALES in comparison)!

Stupid serfs, stop criticizing your glorious leader Mayor Fugazio! He knows better than you what you need.

Look at deBlasio paddling in that canoe photo.

Looks like a big monkey fucking a football.

Go ahead NYC, keep electing Democrats. The last good (great) Mayor you had was Rudy Giuliani, a Republican. Think about it!

Gino said...

Rudy Giuliani, wasn't that great. When he took down the organized business family's some real pieces of shit moved straight in. The MS-13, Asian buyers builders & architects included. Hell you couldn't even get a cement delivery or bulldozer to even create some fugly box or atrocity in the neighborhood
Back in the good days you could not buy a house to "plow" and put up a nasty Bukharin shitter in Ozone park or Middle Village. Nor would some real estate agent dare "blockbust" a street by bringing in some un-desirable.

Those old Italian guys had ethics and balls, they watched our ass, jobs, streets and cared about the neighborhoods they lived in. That turncoat Giuliani completely fucked everything up.

Anonymous said...

Rudy was anti mob? C'mon! Well anyway Gino, just to comfort you; they're still out there and doin' fine. But Giuliani was the best Mayor NYC ever dreamed about. Maybe you're just a DiBlasio kinda guy. If that's his real name.

Anonymous said...

I'm surprised the mayor doesn't have his own plane.
Or does he, and he just took this one to feel like a big guy?

Does that still happen in this day and age? Modern real estate is all about scaring away poor people in rent controlled apartments so they can be rented out to rich yuppies, not the other way around.

Drug users and airplanes don't mix well unless your a perhaps highly skilled Vietnam war pilot. --and good luck finding one.

Gino said...

Sorry I still stand by what I say:
That turncoat Giuliani completely fucked everything up for homeowners. It was much better with the old guys, as in the old guys with the cigars and corner men.
I didn't even know what a Bukharin shitter was till Giuliani cleared the way for Bloomberg to bring in all his people, bulldozers, box stores, Home Depot bling and blop and turn the whole city upside down. A legacy this DaBlasshole did even more.

You couldn't even get an electrician, plumber or cement delivered if you had the balls to try and cut down tree to build some tacky Home Depot material Bukharin shitter on the block without a "nod" from the local boss. Guys with chewed ears would come give you or the real estate agent a talking to make sure you did the right thing before you even sold a house to move to "Long Island"

Look at South Ozone Park and once Beautiful Woodhaven now.
-Shit

Home owners today don't know this or don't remember the good old days.
Now after the demo fence and big hole in the ground 2 trailers of pre-fab shows up and a 3 floor faux stone shit of balustrade bowling pins get slapped up in a month with unskilled labor. That would never fly when the old guys with the cigars were around.
Im no fan of this current no good bird brain Marxist but Rudy G was no great deal for homeowners also.
I think Curis Sliwa would have made a great Mayor and would have won had he the money and not messed with the wrong people.

Typical communist, he should have changed his name to Fidel.

Why did he bother to come to the ceremony? He hates cops and they hate him.

Hey Gino, your hatred is barely disguised. Go back to,your neighborhood wherever that is and stop complaining. Bloomberg isn’t Bukharian. They have their own community and don’t mess with them either. They have their own “ethics”, just like you and those you admire do.

Yes because if Giuliani had left the mob alone most neighborhoods would be intact today.
The mobs controlled construction in this city and had kept modern building materials, shit designs and cheap labor out.
The old guys with the cigars had many methods (and man power) to enforce a anti-crap policy and now they dont!

Zoë said...

He is Fidel and I think worse.

I believe the law is you can only change your name once. This asshole already used his privilege.

Although we’re apparently doomed not to have the pleasure of bidding this bastard an early goodbye, we can appreciate a priceless example of irony: The obstacles stopping the public from sweeping the bum out of City Hall wouldn’t stop de Blasio if he were wielding the broom. To him, laws are for little people.
I'm sure Gov. Cuomo would savor the moment, but needs the mayor to get convicted of a crime short of murder (or murder one) to justify it as something beyond a personal vendetta. But with liberal prosecutors seated you can fuhgeddaboudit!
