Eric Adams: New York City Damage From Ida Is 'Really Alarming'

    1. That doesn’t make sense. New York gives over $22 Billion more to the Federal Government (the most from any state) and has the highest GDP per capita out of any state.

      Letting the city rot (as you propose) would hurt Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina and all the other states that rely on the Federal Government to shore up their budgets.

      Conservatives that want Democratic states to fail are incredibly stupid. California, alone, is the 5th largest economy in the world. Why do you think the US has so much money? It sure isn’t because of West Virginia.

      Red States are (as a whole) the poorest in the country (GDP per capita) and rely on Blue State money to ensure they can function.

      This is the UNITED states of America, after all.

      We pay the high taxes so that you can live in your inexpensive states. Only to have you then wish ill on the very people that are propping up your life. SMDH!

    2. Start with the golden building at Barack Hussein Obama Avenue first and two thirds of the bankruptcy and rot is gone!

  1. This guy is not up to the task of fighting crime in New York. I’m sorry. You need to vote for somebody who’s actually tough on crime.

    1. @Trumpocalypse aren’t you a former cop that supports defunding the cops because of you support Democrats that’s exactly what you’re supporting

    2. @Trumpocalypse
      Born politician. Though a cop, He’s far too soft on law enforcement. He’s going to be completely ineffective. You’ll see.

    1. Trump made the bad deal,released 5000 taliban including the leader just because he knew he was going to lose,and he wanted this to blow up in Biden’s face.

  2. All of the mitigation steps to limit the effects of climate change will now be many times more expensive than if we had taken the advice of scientists back in the ’70s.

  3. First no one can be ready for climate shifts because they happen faster than political,financial and cultural shifts.The smart thing to do is start relocating cities to higher ground. Also Fema flood insurance should charge according to new flood maps and no property should be repaired more than once.Move away from coastal zones and enjoy the oceanfront by staying in an RV. at the beach, instead of building houses that we know will be destroyed and repaired with taxpayers money.

  4. As a lib I am only concerned that they are addressing everyone by their preferred pronoun. Because that’s what’s important!

  5. I wonder if the people that scream about the CDC, follow CDC guidelines with 72 hrs. worth of food and water?

  6. Shout out to George Floyd on sixteen months of sobriety. It took some tough love but he did it. Say his name liberals

  7. Where is this man when crime happens I mean the other Republican is there a lot on the streets and this guy is nowhere To be found no I’m giving the other guy credit because I don’t really trust this man

  8. Doesn’t surprise me that MSM. completely goes on with day to day news, when the REAL news should still be on the devastation in Afghanistan. THERE ARE STILL AMERICAN CITIZENS STRANDED IN AFGHANISTAN including children. Yet this network is completely going on like it doesn’t exist.
    WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!

  9. Just the BEGINNING of WORSE!
    What MANKIND and TECHNOLOGY did to the PLANET! GREED HAS TO BE THE WORSE ONE! NOT CARING WHAT OR WHO WE HAVE TO DESTROY FOR MONEY! MONEY IN THE STREETS

  10. Let’s start by using all the pipeline that’s lined up from the XL pipeline. Let’s run those across the country east to west north to south pump the extra water to the West Coast right now. How’s that for a new infrastructure plan.

  11. John 8:44
    Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    Isaiah 5:20
    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
