No problem. Here ya go.





This is a bad day for the news media. Lets not kid ourselves, Toobin said on CNN. The larger message that a lot of people are going to take from this story is that the news media are a bunch of leftist liars who are dying to get the president, and theyre willing to lie to do it.

"Its indisputable that New York City has enormous income inequality; the top 1 percent of New Yorkers earned 40.5 percent of all the citys income in 2014. However, that same group paid 47 percent of all the local income taxes, while one-third of the citys filersmostly poor residentspaid no tax. The same dynamic occurs at the state and federal levels. Those who earn the most pay disproportionately more in taxes, largely to fund wealth-transfer programs that move money down the economic ladder to the needy."

"Despite his self-described socialistic impulse, de Blasio has been willing to take maximum donations from real estate magnates such as Joseph Chetrit, Douglas Durst, and Yeheskel Elias, even as he remains a constant critic of the citys real estate industry. He interrupted his speech to sign an executive order authorizing the creation of a city office that would seize the property of bad landlords. Previously, he has expressed his druthers to let the city determine every single plot of land, how development would proceed. And there would be very stringent requirements around income levels and rents. Thats a world Id love to see.

Scrap-metal queen Wendy Neu is a major de Blasio donor, as is deli-meat king Frank Brunckhorst of Boars Head Provisions. The financial industry, which de Blasio sees as societys primary engine of inequality, has nonetheless funneled money to his campaigns. Hedge-fund mega-billionaire James Simons and his wife each maxed out in giving to the mayors reelection campaign, as did Cynthia Nixon, Rosie ODonnell, Herb Alpert, Facebook investor Sean Parker and his wife Alexandra, four members of the Chicago Pritzker family, restaurateur Drew Nieporent, and a long list of the millionaires and billionaires that de Blasio complains about as the cause of anger in this country.

Now flirting with a run for president, de Blasio is spouting redistributionist rhetoric at odds with not only fiscal reality but also his own fundraising practices. Maybe money is in the wrong hands when those hands arent handing him campaign donations."
