New York Socialists Drive Amazon Out of their City


New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was counting on bringing Amazon’s new headquarters to New York City as a way to make up for the thousands of residents heading for much friendlier tax environments in Florida and elsewhere around the country. So the Democrat was incensed when Amazon announced this week that they were pulling the plug on their HQ2 plans, but he wasn’t mad at Jeff Bezos and co. He was livid at the New York socialists who made it nearly impossible for Amazon to do business in the Big Apple.

“A small group of politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community — which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City — the state’s economic future and the best interests of the people of this state,” Cuomo said in a statement. “The New York State Senate has done tremendous damage. They should be held accountable for this lost economic opportunity.”

While Cuomo was enraged, the “small group of politicians” he spoke of were more than happy to see Amazon hit the road.

Communist Mayor Bill de Blasio released a statement of his own, blaming Amazon for the collapsed deal.

“You have to be tough to make it in New York City. We gave Amazon the opportunity to be a good neighbor and do business in the greatest city in the world,” de Blasio said. “Instead of working with the community, Amazon threw away that opportunity. We have the best talent in the world and every day we are growing a stronger and fairer economy for everyone. If Amazon can’t recognize what that’s worth, its competitors will.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most prominent opponents of the deal, could not of course come up with anything nearly that eloquent to say about it, so she went with, “Anything is possible.”

Well, no – a coherent view of American economic policy coming out of your mouth is certainly not possible, but hey, tell us some more about your ridiculous Green New Deal!

To give you an idea of what kind of economic boom Amazon would have brought to New York: 25,000 new jobs, paying around $25,000 a year; an investment in 8 million square feet of Long Island office space; and tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next twenty years.

Losing this, in Ocasio-Cortez’s view, is a good thing. Lord help us if this moron ever gets her hands on some real power.

What do you think?

    • THIS is how the DEMOCOMMUNISTS that live, and “RUN” the “cities” areas to keep the people “UNDER THEIR THUMB” in their COMMUNIST “plantation”.
      If you have a good paying job, and can make it on your OWN, you are no longer “dependent” on the “‘government TEAT”. The CORRUPT DEMOCOMMUNISTS just CANNOT have THAT happening! They will do ANYTHING to retain their POWER and CONTROL over the residents.

    • Don’t forget Homo Is also his own worse enemy. He won’t allow fracking in NY state. So PA cross drills, and takes it out from underneath NY. LMAO…keep up the good work, Homo!

    • Absolutely! They’re going to have one here in Nashville, but I don’t know if it’s going to be as big. And, any of the smaller towns, or some of the bigger cities, would love to have them. What that dimwit, Ocasio-Cortez, doesn’t understand that, the incentives that Amazon would receive, weren’t actual cash in hand money. She definitely is plus for us Republicans & conservatives. She’ll help re-elect Pres Trump next year. Between her & Pelosi, I’m not sure which is causing the most damage to the Dim party. Even some members of Congress are already wanting her head on a platter. The Dims that is. I’d like to her tossed out, along with those 2 Muslim women. How any of them got elected is beyond me! I guess all the freebies that AOC promised won her votes, & the 2 Muslims ran in states that have large areas controlled by Muslims. If you weren’t born & raised here, go back to where you came from, & take on THEIR government! The President has to be born on US soil, anywhere he/she is born, as long as both parents are citizens. In Ted Cruz’ case, his dad is Canadian, but his mom is an American. That’s how he came to have dual citizenship. Marco Rubio was about 5 when his parents defected to the US. He was naturalized, so is a citizen. But, I STILL think you need to be born here before you can hold office!

  1. How was Amazon driven out? They decided to not locate there. Not enough taxpayer freebies in the mix for them. If these billionaire corporations want to set up shop in my neighborhood, let them use their own money to do so. They can still make more more at their own expense. They can stop being moochers and pay up just like the rest of us working for them stiffs do.

    • You’re entitled to your view and to express it. However, when Amazon stated they’d uphold the law of the land by supporting ICE, that’s when the deal fell through.

      • I didn’t hear that, but am glad to hear it. The governor, & the mayor of NYC both wanted Amazon to build there. IF you don’t support the laws of this nation, then LEAVE!!

    • That’s not how ai heard it. The neosocialists made an attempt to twiddle with payscales inside Amazon NYC, and to force Amazon to build subsidized housing near the office bldgs. They tried to interfere with hiring decisions at Amazon. They tried to take away a measure of business freedom from Amazon to advance their power-thirsty “command and control” economic ideology. What fools. DeBalsio has to shoulder the blame for letting idiots sit down at the table for the City.

  2. Well New York I totally agree, you got just what you deserve When you have a village idiot in your city and state what can you expect. I would NOT expect and company would relocate to your locations.

    • buckwheat: New York certainly got what they deserve, from a fool governor, to Chuckie Schumer, Conrad DiBlasio, AOC, Kirsten Gillibrand to name a few morons. Couldn’t happen to a “better” bunch of lousy politicians. Amazon was smart to look elsewhere; anti-American New York City doesn’t deserve an Amazon. Upper state New York might be a better choice if it wasn’t for the Cuomo factor.

      MAGA!

  3. What an idiot. To think she was elected by the cross-section of the voters in her district. She knows less about taxes and the bad word profit. So much for jobs. To think she will have a retirement at taxpayers’ expense.

  4. DiBlasio is now whining and crying because Amazon is moving on, BUT, he has only himself to blame for his communist attitude that inspired the likes of AOC and her gang of nitwits. Sorry blassy, you asked for it, now you’re getting it!

  5. You voted for a Communist, people of her (AOC’s) District, and you got exactly what you voted for. I heard on the news today that the wages attached to many of those jobs were over $100,000 and you threw it away!! Take a good look at what socialism does to the economy of nations. Agenda over helping people to raise their standard of living. The majority of New Yorkers wanted those jobs, but the leftist political elites know better. Their uber agenda marches over us all.

  6. AOC says no aircraft, use trains
    So “we” build tunnel-bridge through Bering Straight.
    and connect with Orient Express to reach Europe.
    Soviet Union will pay for this to develop their NE
    Territories and hopefully give New Yorkers Jobs.
    I am not sure this will use less non green energy.

  7. I am very glad Amazon pulled out of NYC! The entire state is a communist crap hole from top to bottom!! Tax everyone to death. Corruption out the butt with only Chicago displacing NYC as number 1. Anti gun anti infant anti religion especially Catholic Religion. All for perversion and corrupt morals! Good for you! The only problem is that these New York liberals are moving to Fla. bringing their liberal political beliefs and corruption with them I.e, Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties!!! Election corruption and revocation of Constitional rights being high on their list!!!

  8. You’ve got it right Jayne! I’m from upper central NY State and we feel the same way you do! In fact, our local politicians are going after the gold ring, so wish us luck! We’re as conservative as it gets in NY State and can sure use some economical assistance! Up Deblasio’s nose we say, and that moron ex-bartender who couldn’t pour a draft beer correctly let alone make a reasonable political decision needs to head for California where she would be better received! I’m not sure what to do about our traitorous Senators Schumer and foul-mouthed Gillibrand. Big cities piled high with freeloading democrats are a strong voter base, so voting them out is almost impossible. We’re stuck with the arrogant SOB Cuomo, who just got re-elected by the Democrat machine, but one thing is, he didn’t have anything good to say about Deblasio and AOC when they ran Amazon out, so there might be some hope?

  9. Let’s get this straight. These “progressives” were happy Amazon decided not to set up in NY. AOC was bragging that “we” showed corporate America that “we” rule. Yeah, they did their constituents a service. Heck, there were a lot of people in NJ (and I bet a lot of other states) who were saying, “Come over here!”. There are people who want jobs, governments who want the tax money. I hope they are proud of the damage they did.

  10. Way to Go for AOC. For the Republicans, she is the gift that keeps on giving. She shows the folks in flyover land what real Socialists say and do. I find it increasingly hard to believe that she went to college at all, much less to a college with a national reputation. If this is what they are turning out these days, we’re all in deep sht.

  11. You really make it seem really easy along with your presentation but I to find
    this matter to be really something which I believe I might by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and very vast for me.
    I’m looking ahead for your next post, I will attempt to
    get the dangle of it!

  12. This is very interesting, You are a very professional blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and look forward to searching for more
    of your fantastic post. Also, I have shared your web site in my
    social networks
