What has happened to our republic? When was it hijacked by left-leaning political leaders who are exercising what amounts to mob rule? This phenomena of removing and toppling statutes that have been the symbol of our history for years is mob rule, albeit, there is no movement to remove statutes of left-wing icons whose works are appalling (Margaret Sanger comes to mind; so does Franklin Delano Roosevelt.) City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, who embraces the convicted terrorists Oscar Lopez Rivera, a thug who brought terrorism to NYC for the first time, is calling for the removal of statutes throughout the city, including the Christopher Columbus monument in Columbus Circle. Leftist political leaders have succumbed to mob rule; unable to embrace what we have learned from our past and the extraordinary country we have become. They discredit the honor bestowed on them by the citizens of New York City and America.

Mayor de Blasio has lost touch with New Yorkers; how does any one person need nearly 300 "special assistants"? Do any of the "Special Assistants" ever check on the residents of the City Housing Authority. Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis did and came away calling the authority -- under the mayor's control -- the biggest slum lord in the city.
Mayor de Blasio is in charge of the NYC Schools, yet, taxpayers are paying $25 million for teachers no one wants. Mr. Mayor, when will you resolve this outrageous waste of money and actually help students?
Governor Cuomo, another leftist political leader who is part of the mob rule, is joining forces with a national group to identify inmates who may qualify for clemency and help them apply.
