Bloomberg kept National Guard out of NYC because they had guns?

posted at 4:31 pm on November 4, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has been on the receiving end of a firestorm of criticism lately, particularly for his ham handed handling of the Hurricane Sandy recovery. But this story is almost too stupid to check.

Mayor Bloomberg has snubbed Borough President Markowitz’s impassioned plea to bring the National Guard to Hurricane Sandy-scarred Brooklyn — arguing that approving the Beep’s request would be a waste of federal manpower and turn the borough into a police state.

“We don’t need it,” Mayor Bloomberg said on Wednesday during a press update on the city’s ongoing Hurricane Sandy cleanup. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”

I’m not sure, but I think we’re witnessing the complete implosion of somebody who was once considered a pretty influential politician on the rise. Yes, Bloomberg doesn’t much care for the Second Amendment and doesn’t want people to have guns. We get it. But we’re talking about the National Guard here. Has this guy completely lost his mind?

This is a time when leaders up and down the east coast are loudly singing the praises of the National Guard for their rapid deployment and efficient rescue, recovery and security work. It’s also a time when people out on Staten Island are hanging on by a thread, with looting and violence being a serious threat on top of the hurricane’s destruction. Who in their right mind even suggests that Guardsmen carrying their weapons is an issue at a time like this? I understand wanting to express your support of and confidence in the police department and the firefighters, but even some of the finest first responders in the nation are completely swamped by the magnitude of this disaster. They could use the help and the Guard stands ready to provide it.

It’s already become pretty obvious that Bloomberg’s goal is to become the counterweight to the NRA in America, so these tendencies shouldn’t come as a complete surprise. But between this and trying to go ahead with the marathon while they were still pulling bodies out of the rubble in his city, this entire tragic episode seems to have served as a spotlight on exactly how bad this guy’s management of the city has been. Hey, Mr. Mayor! Next time you’re mulling over your next idiotic decision, please try to keep the following image in mind.

The citizenry of new York need to arm themselves in the event of another disaster.They will not be able to count on Bloomberg to keep them safe,any more than our embassy staff in Benghazi could count on Commander-in-Chief Obama.

Bloomberg endorsed Obama so we should not be surprised by his cluelessness.
It infuriates me to have him tell these people who have lost everything don’t get overanxious.

Then to see those huge generators as big as trucks just sitting in parking lots. Generators Bloomberg was going to use at the marathon–they could power hundreds of homes.

I’m glad those people gave him an earful.

It’s obvious why they don’t allow the residents of that city to own and carry weapons.

New York crime rate falls by a THIRD during Superstorm Sandy despite 15 arrests for looting

New York City crime dropped by a third in the days after Superstorm Sandy but there was a slight increase in burglaries after at least 15 people were charged with looting empty businesses and homes left in a blackout since the disaster.

Between Monday – when the storm hit, killing 41 people in the city – and Friday, the murder rate dropped by 86 percent and rapes fell 44 per cent.

Robbery decreased by 30 per cent, assault by 31 per cent, larceny by 48 per cent and car thefts by 24 per cent. Burglaries rose by 3 per cent.(More….)

The National Guard is in Brooklyn and Stanton Island in significant numbers- even distributing gasoline at a refueling station in Brooklyn. Not sure about the accuracy or veracity of this story- at the very least, it’s a major oversight not to mention that the Guard is very active throughout New York.

Obama, Romney in even race two days before election: Reuters/Ipsos poll
WASHINGTON | Sun Nov 4, 2012 2:52pm EST
****************************************

(Reuters) – The race for the White House remained in essentially a dead heat ahead of Tuesday’s election but U.S. President Barack Obama holds a slim edge over Republican candidate Mitt Romney in the key state of Ohio, according to a Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll released on Sunday.

Nationally, of 3,805 polled likely voters, 48 percent said they would vote for Democrat Obama, while 47 percent sided with Romney, a former Massachusetts governor, the poll showed.

The results were similarly close in several swing states seen as determining the winner – Virginia, Colorado and Florida.

But in Ohio – perhaps the single most crucial swing state and where 18 electoral votes are at stake – Obama had 48 percent compared to Romney’s 44 percent. On Saturday, Obama was ahead in Ohio by a point in the same poll.(More…)

Then Rudy came in to office. He cleaned that town as if he went block by block with windex!

When 9/11 happened I knew we were in the best hands possible and we were.

KOOLAID2 on November 4, 2012 at 5:46 PM

So tell us, photographic evidence of National Guard troops patrolling Brooklyn Monday night isn’t relevant to this story? It’s juat trolling? Those liberals at Google made image search so that even dimwits perform a quick fact check if you question that comment. Come on, you can do it…

The only way liberals ever succeed is when the rest of the country bails them out. Then they claim success.

Leave Bloomie all on his own, then. No bailout–EVER.

Then we’ll see the result of liberalism as it is. And, if we do, we’ll see the end of people voting Democrat in droves.

I thought Cuomo already called on the Guard to help with relief efforts. Bloomberg has the authority to keep them out of the city?

lynncgb on November 4, 2012 at 6:02 PM

You’re right…New Yorkers don’t need any help.

I put together a bunch of stuff for my church to send to NY/NJ…clothes, food, blankets. And I was planning a financial contribution as well … until my wife and I read the story about New Jersey a$$-wipes refusing non-union electrical crews in Seaside Heights.

You’re right — they don’t believe in this country; they have nothing in common with Americans, including basic humanity I am afraid, and they do not want or need help from normal Americans. I wish them success with their new country.

This is the guy who wanted to use 3 industrial strength generators to power the media tent in Central Park for the marathon today. In addition, they were planning to spread a fleet of water trucks along the route to supply water to the runners exclusively. Plus they had on hand truck loads of pasta for the runners pre- race dinner. And this was for a race that was scheduled to run through areas of the city without power, or water, or food or heat. Going by houses that were ruined by flooding and wind damage.

So when the engaged public finally put a stop to this madness, the generators were shipped off to a parking lot in New Jersey to sit un-used, while people on Station Island sat in the cold and dark, without food or heat. Just your typical liberal in action.
