Andrew Yang was supposed to be the next Mayor of New York City. That’s what all of the “woke” pundits were saying just a couple of months ago. But the tech millionaire’s fortunes spun on a dime, as is often the case for Democrats, and it appears Yang may end up finishing in fourth place in the Democratic primary.
“I am a numbers guy, I am someone who traffics in what’s happening by the numbers, and I am not going to be the next mayor of New York City — based upon the numbers that have come in tonight,” he told his supporters.
Meanwhile, firebrand Republican Curtis Sliwa handily defeated Fernando Mateo for the GOP nod to be the sacrificial lamb in the extremely blue city. He will likely face Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams on the Democrat side, though the new “instant runoff” system in New York City will be tested. According to NBC News:
Adams had roughly 31 percent of the vote. Civil rights lawyer Maya Wiley was at 22 percent, while the city’s former sanitation commissioner Kathryn Garcia was close behind, with about 21 percent.
Yang was the early front-runner but has slipped in the polls and been replaced by Adams, a former New York Police Department captain.
It will take a major scandal for Sliwa to defeat Adams or whoever the Democratic nominee is. Rudy Giuliani was the last true Republican Mayor (we don’t count Michael Bloomberg who was Republican turned Independent turned Democrat turned Full-Blown Socialist) in the city, but those were different times. The Big Apple is as leftwing as it gets, challenging cities like San Francisco and Seattle on the wokeness scale.
Yang’s fall is indicative of a party that does not know who to embrace at any given moment. Candidates get canceled, like Bernie Sanders did. Twice. They fall from grace as Joe Biden did before miraculously being installed as Democratic nominee for president. Yang suffered a bit of both as his message failed to resonate with the right audience, an audience that is constantly changing its preferred tune.
According to the New York Post:
A victorious Sliwa stepped up to the podium at the Empire Steakhouse in Midtown to chants of “Curtis! Curtis!” surrounded by former Mayor Rudy Giuliani and supermarket mogul and 77 WABC owner John Catsimatidis.
“Ladies and gentleman, we have just won the Republican Party in an overwhelming way,” Sliwa said
“It was a long period of time that took going door to door, street by street, subway station by subway station, and spreading the word. It could never have happened had it not been for John and Margo Catismidatis. And to Rudy Guliani, who endorsed me along with other major Republicans all over this city,” he said.
With the city in ruins following disastrous “leadership” from Bill de Blasio, the people will either turn to the same failed policies or they’ll recognize their best days were under Rudy Giuliani and the GOP.
New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
