Thank God that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is leaving office. By a long shot, Eric Adams will be a much better fit for the city than de Blasio. Though Adams is a Democrat and has made comments in favor of COVID-19 vaccine mandates, you can tell that the courts will be a huge determining factor in the mandates because of the reaction to President Joe Biden’s mandates.
De Blasio is under investigation for misusing city security for his personal use and did many weird things as a reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic and the re-opening of the city.
The city needs a change, and Adams will hopefully make that change.
PJ Media said, “In his mind, he has been successful because that’s what communists do.”
Couldn’t agree more.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani cleaned up the city and fought off crime waves only to hand the city over to someone who painted Black Lives Matter on the street with protesters. Adams has made similar expectations for the town because he knows it’s out of control.
Adams said, “I made it clear on the campaign trail, I’m going to put in place, not the anti-crime unit, I’m going to put in place a plainclothes gun unit.”
De Blasio seemed to make his mission to make the city worse regardless of the cost. He released a large number of the jails population even though reports suggest that of all of the new COVID-19 cases, less than 1% were from prisons.
Then, there are the COVID-19 vaccine passports. There’s no mandate to get the Covid-19 vaccine. It’s already been noted in this article that it’s against the law. New York City businesses have lost business because of the passports.
One business owner said, “for 15-16 months, business was not happening at all. I had to get rid of 80% of my staff in one. We barely survived. I thought I was going to lose my restaurants.” That was during the pandemic.
The business owner continued, “This could destroy my business. Too many people are unvaccinated. Right now, it’s summer, so it’s not too bad to eat outside. But soon, it will be freezing. A lot of people are going to get fed up and leave.”
He’s not wrong. When businesses have to push mandates because a politician says they have to, they will blame the industry and rarely the politician. It’s the government’s responsibility, local and above, to allow businesses to thrive. That’s what liberty is about.
