Bill de Blasio (/dɪˈblɑːzioʊ/; born Warren Wilhelm Jr.; May 8, 1961) is an American politician who is currently serving as the 109th Mayor of New York City.

Mayor Bill de Blasio cited his " socialistic impulse " in describing an ideal world where New York City government has control over all land and buildings in his city. One would be willing to believe De Blasio ’s socialistic impulses arises out of genuine, if wrongheaded, concern for the working poor

Late last month, as you may have heard, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made the biggest mistake any elite leftist can. He admitted what he really believes.

Lamenting the inability of his government to plan every aspect of real estate in New York - "to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be" - de Blasio identified the great obstacle to his ambitions: property rights. "What's been hardest," de Blasio said, "is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property." His comments have attracted a wide range of criticism.

Watch: Bill Belichick, Adam Theilen got into heated argument

Watch: Bill Belichick, Adam Theilen got into heated argument It’s rare that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick shows much emotion on or off the football field, so what happened during Sunday’s game against the Vikings was a bit surprising. An altercation between him and Vikings receiver Adam Theilen took place in the fourth quarter of the game, when Belichick challenged a play. The Vikings had run the ball up the middle on 4th-and-1, and Latavius Murray appeared to be short of the line to gain, but was given the first down. Belichick handed the challenge flag to the official, and for some reason, Theilen began yelling at him.

Bill de Blasio is America 's Marxist mayor. While the nation obsesses over the right wing extremists Thinks that the people of enterprising New York City have a widespread impulse toward Mayor de Blasio says he’d like to have the power to determine what happens on every piece of land in the city.

Why doesn’t New York love Bill de Blasio ? De Blasio initially said he would march behind López Rivera but then, after major sponsors, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and his That was pure de Blasio — allying himself with the most vicious and extreme elements of the Left, bumbling in an attempt to get

First of all, a mayor of New York, the financial capital of the world, complaining about capitalism, is like the mayor of Los Angeles complaining the entertainment industry is holding his city back. If not for New York's centuries long embrace of private property rights, de Blasio would be mayor of an impoverished, English fishing village.

Second, de Blasio's indictment of private property seems to stop just short of trespassing his own. There is nothing stopping him from handing his multiple rental properties over to the New York City government, and yet they continue to net him thousands of dollars every month.

But as out of touch and hypocritical as his statement may have been, it serves as a valuable reminder of what's really behind the Democratic Party's current "socialist moment." The media has made cult heroes of left wing radicals like Bernie Sanders, and they are hard at work trying to create new generation of socialist extremists by extolling the virtues of failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke and New York representative elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

Bill de Blasio , Mayor of New York, gave an interview where he blamed capitalism and the constitution for limiting his power. Pause. Duh. Because America is not a kingdom made of serfs. Billy -Jean de Blasio seems to think socialism is the bee’s knees. Except there’s over a hundred years’ worth of

Mayor Bill de Blasio rounds the corner of a Gracie Mansion porch wearing a broad smile. A newly released report shows city unemployment dropping to record lows, and polls predict de Blasio What I’m not going to do is oversubscribe with folks who are not ready to make changes that are needed.

De Blasio attributes this radical energy to a "socialistic impulse" in communities that people "would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs."

There is an impulse, but it's not socialistic. It's tyrannical. And it's not new.

This tyrannical impulse lives within all of us. The desire to set ourselves apart and write special rules for others is the dark side of human nature. It is that immutable impulse, which ever leads men and nations toward ruin, that our Founding Fathers set out to harness and neutralize with the Constitution. They knew no power on earth could turn people into angels. So they consciously devised a political system of divided government and dispersed powers, and cultivated an economic system of free market capitalism, anchored in equal, individual property rights.

De Blasio is absolutely right that the great threat to his ideological goals are private property and the rule of law that protects it. What really frustrates de Blasio is that in America, everyone else enjoys the same rights he does. That's the real story about de Blasio's lament, and the reason that boomlet socialism is enjoying these days on the left.

Earlier in life, De Blasio was a left-wing activist and an ardent supporter of the radical socialist government in Nicaragua — the Sandinista National Today, De Blasio is well known for his intensely progressive approach to managing New York City’s government. This interview reveals that perhaps

Thank you Bill de Blasio for your honest perspective on the future of America and what it could I think there’s a socialistic impulse , which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they De Blasio should not be too quickly dismissed as a radical or a buffoon. Perhaps a few decades ago but

Despite what "fake news" tells you, there is nothing populist about socialism. It has never empowered the "little guy." In socialist systems, the little guy always ends up in bread lines or prison. Nor does it, as conservatives sometimes charge, mire everyone in equal misery. On the contrary, in socialistic countries, the wealthy and well-connected always make out like bandits. Literally.

That's why, throughout history, it is always elites like de Blasio, O'Rourke, Ocasio Cortez, Elizabeth Warren, and their allies in the academy, entertainment industry, and mainstream media, who lead the charge for a disgraced ideology. If and when the revolution comes, they expect to be the ones calling the shots. They think they deserve to wield that power over the rest of us deplorables, bitterly clinging to the wrong side of history.

Such self-satisfied, power-hungry elites are exactly the kind of people our constitutional system was set up to thwart. Mayor de Blasio's frustration is a positive outcome of that system, one we should all be eager to protect.
