Baltimore Cops Call For Leftist Mayor To Resign Over ‘Stand Down’ Order Issued During Riot

Baltimore Police Officers Want To Oust The Mayor – Daily Caller

.

.
During a Baltimore-based radio talk show on Thursday, a man who identified himself as a Baltimore police officer named “Jeff” called into the program and said fellow police officers were organizing to push out the city’s mayor.

“There is right now over 50 of us officers who are immediately asking for [Baltimore Mayor] Stephanie Rawlings-Blake to step down for what she did to us Monday,” the caller told WBAL radio host Derek Hunter.

The Baltimore mayor has denied giving “stand down” orders and blamed the media for misinterpreting her comments about providing “a space” for protesters to loot.

“Any other time in my career, if somebody were to throw a brick or a block at me, we would take immediate actions to pull our weapons on them. Numerous times on Monday when our officers were being injured, our commanders are telling us ‘stand down, stand down.’ You had no idea what it did to us as police officers to sit there,” said the self-described “21-year veteran” of the Baltimore police department.

“Our commissioner was so upset Monday night. You could see it in his voice as he’s giving interviews. He wanted to let us do our jobs,” insisted the WBAL caller.

“Jeff” continued to explain that the way to shut down situations from escalating is to “lock up” the first agitator the moment they start breaking the law.

He also said that many police officers were injured but there were even more unreported “officers who had cuts and bruises.”

The alleged police officer claims the movement inside the Baltimore police department against the city mayor is growing.

“Our numbers are growing of officers. We have black, white, female, Hispanic and other officers who are joining this movement now to get her out of office,” he told WBAL Radio.

While limited police resources has been listed as a factor in the police department’s hands off approach during the looting this week, the caller “Jeff” insists that they could have handled the crowd.

“The moment it started, we could have ended it. Trust you me. They would not let us. It’s on the mayor’s shoulders now for the people who were injured, the buildings that were burnt, and the officers that were hurt. The city may never recover from what she let happen,” he said.

“The mayor needs to answer for this.”

The officer told WBAL that police morale is “unbelievably low” and numerous officers have quit since Monday. He is currently talking to his wife about whether he should continue his work in the police department.

Cop-Hating Mayor De Blasio Defends NY Assembly Speaker Who Was Just Arrested On Federal Corruption Charges

NYC Mayor: Powerful Dem Charged With Corruption Is A ‘Man Of Integrity’ – TPM

.

.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said on Thursday that New York’s powerful and longtime Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D) was “a man of integrity” despite having just been arrested and charged with corruption.

Silver surrendered to federal authorities earlier in the day after being charged with allegedly taking millions of dollars in bribes. However, de Blasio stood by the speaker during a news conference at City Hall.

“Although the charges announced today are certainly very serious, I want to note that I’ve always known Shelly Silver to be a man of integrity, and he certainly has due process rights,” de Blasio said. “And I think it’s important that we let the judicial process play out here.”

De Blasio noted that “allegations are allegations” and said he didn’t believe Silver should step down at this point.

Hundreds Of Bibles Sent To Vile, Leftist Mayor After She Subpoenas Sermons Of Pastors

Houston Mayor Has Received Bibles From All Over the Country – Daily Signal

.

.
Houston Mayor Annise Parker received a surprise after her order to subpoena the sermons of pastors.

Bibles have been sent to her office from all over the country, according to Houston’s KHOU.

On Monday, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office told Houston’s KPRC “that somewhere between 500 and 1,000 Bibles” had been delivered.

As The Daily Signal previously reported, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee used his show on Fox News to call for Americans to send Parker Bibles.

“I would like to ask every pastor in America, send her your sermons,” said Huckabee. “Everybody watching the show ought to send her a Bible.”

Huckabee was joined in his call to send Parker Bibles by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Glenn Beck.

Parker admitted that she had received Bibles, telling KHOU that Huckabee was “doing what he can to pump ratings for Fox News.”

Parker told KPRC that she thought the protest was “a very productive way for folks who disagreed with our legal strategy to express that disagreement” and that she is “happy to share the Bibles with those who may want them.”

The city previously issued an ordinance that the sermons of pastors on “the topics of equal rights, civil rights, homosexuality, or gender identity,” be subpoenaed.

According to KPRC, “Parker has since instructed the city’s legal team to narrow the scope of the subpoenas and had earlier said she did not know about the sermon subpoenas before they were issued.”

The new mayor of a Minnesota town is just 7-years-old, and he doesn’t say much.

Voters in Cormorant elected a dog named Duke by a landslide. The 12 people in the village each paid $1 to cast a vote.

After winning, Duke got 5 hours of grooming and a new outfit.

Duke will be officially sworn in on Saturday during the city’s annual fair.

As for the mayor’s salary, a pet food store is donating a year’s supply of kibble to reward him for his service.

The village of Cormorant is located in Northwestern Minnesota.

At 7, Duke is far from the youngest recent mayor in Minnesota. Bobby Tufts won the post when he was just 3 years old. He was recently unseated by Eric Mueller, who is a well-seasoned 16 years old.

Murrieta Mayor Earns Roaring Applause: We’re Going To Send Washington A Big, Fat Bill! – TPNN

.

.
As the Obama Administration continues to pump thousands of illegal immigrants into the interior of our nation, concerned Americans have been arriving in Murrieta, California, to protest the wave of illegal immigrants and the Obama Administration’s commitment to lawlessness that facilitates this surge of illegals.

In a recent townhall as Murrieta citizens voiced concern over the flood of illegals being introduced into the country, Murrieta Mayor Alan Long earned a roaring applause when he declared that his administration was working to log each and every manhour spent dealing with the illegal immigration issues so that he could send Washington “a big, fat bill.”

“We did identify the need for a funding code so that we could track every single hour that is spent on this. Now, at the end of this, do I have a plan to send Washington, D.C., a big, fat bill? You bet!”

Long’s speech was interrupted by a roar of applause. Finally, Long admitted, “Now, do I have any faith that it would be paid? No.”

Murietta has become a focal point of the immigration issue as protesters have successfully blocked Homeland Security busses who were transporting illegals further into the interior of the country to a detention facility in order to ease the burden on detention facilities closer to the border.

Yet Another Democrat Politician Taken Away In Handcuffs (Video)

After Only 115 Days In Office Charlotte Democrat Mayor Arrested, Faces 20 Years In Prison – Gateway Pundit

That didn’t take long…

After only 115 days in office, Democrat Charlotte Mayor Arrested, Faces 20 Years In Prison

Democrat Mayor Patrick D. Cannon is accused of bribery and extortion.

.

.
CNN reported:

FBI agents on Wednesday arrested the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, for allegedly taking tens of thousands of dollars worth of bribes “in exchange for the use of his official position,” the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Patrick D. Cannon, 47, faces federal charges of theft and bribery concerning programs receiving federal funds, honest services wire fraud and extortion under color of official right, according to a press release from U.S. Attorney Anne Tompkins of western North Carolina.

The Charlotte mayor’s office declined a CNN request for comment. However, CNN obtained a copy of Cannon’s resignation letter, sent to City of Charlotte Manager Ron Carlee and City Attorney Bob Hagemann.

“I hereby give notice of my resignation from the position of the Mayor of the City of Charlotte, effective immediately. In light of the charges that have been brought against me, it is my judgment that the pendency of these charges will create too much of a distraction for the business of the City to go forward smoothly and without interruption,” Cannon wrote in the letter.

Commie Mayor De Blasio Caught Running Stop Signs After Announcing Crackdown On Dangerous Driving

Mayor De Blasio’s SUV Caught On Camera Running Two Stop Signs And Speeding just Days After He Announced Crackdown On Dangerous Driving – New York Daily News

.

.
It’s another tale of two cities – one set of traffic rules for Mayor de Blasio, and one for the rest of us.

Just two days after de Blasio announced a sweeping plan to crack down on dangerous driving, an SUV with the mayor riding shotgun ran stop signs, changed lanes without signaling and flouted the speed limit.

.

.
It was caught on camera by a WCBS-TV/Channel 2 news crew that trailed de Blasio’s official two-vehicle motorcade after he left a news conference in Queens Thursday touting the city’s pothole repair work.

The behavior was a far cry from de Blasio’s comments Tuesday when he announced his Vision Zero plan to end traffic deaths.

.

.
He proposed a slew of measures, including lowering the citywide speed limit and installing more cameras to catch drivers who speed and run red lights.

.

.
“We’ve put a very bold plan before you,” he said Tuesday, “and we want the public to know we’re holding ourselves to this standard and we intend to achieve these goals.”

Yet, on Thursday, his official black SUV blew through two stop signs in Queens and was clocked by Channel 2 traveling 40 to 45 mph in a 30 mph zone and pushing 60 in a 45 mph zone.

.

.
When he reached City Hall, the mayor lingered in his SUV, leaving the second car in his caravan unable to pass through the City Hall gate – blocking a crosswalk and an intersection.

.

.
If a driver had been ticketed for all the violations, he would have racked up 13 points on his license – more than the 11 that trigger a suspension, Channel 2’s Marcia Kramer reported.

It is not clear why the mayor was in a rush, but he is often behind schedule. His news conference in Queens began 15 minutes late.

While serving as the city’s public advocate, in 2010, de Blasio chose to drive himself, “often accelerating aggressively to beat yellow lights,” according to an account in The New York Times.

De Blasio’s press secretary, Phil Walzak, said, “We believe public safety is everyone’s responsibility. We also recognize NYPD’s training and protocols, and refer questions related to security and transportation to them. With that in mind, Mayor de Blasio is firmly committed to the traffic safety policies outlined this week.”

In a prepared statement, the Police Department said “personnel assigned to the mayor’s security detail receive specialized training in driving based on maintaining security as well as safety.”

“At certain times, under certain conditions, this training may include… maintaining speed with the general flow of traffic, and may sometimes include tactics to safely keep two or more police vehicles together in formation when crossing intersections.”
