Right-wing artist and activist Scott LoBaido has unfurled a massive banner of New York Mayor Bill de Blasio holding Lady Liberty’s severed head over the Staten Island Expressway.

The giant banner is 20′ by 30′, or roughly the size of a large two car garage, and features de Blasio happily holding the bleeding head while rocking a Che Guevara shirt.

“Go big or go home!” LoBaido wrote on Facebook.

The New York Post reports that “while cops asked LoBaido to take the print down about an hour and a half after it went up, the controversial artist said he’s got plans to hang it elsewhere in the city in the future.”

This wasn’t the first art LoBaido blessed Staten Island with this week.

The day before he dropped the banner, he also painted a thin blue line in the street outside the 122nd Precinct stationhouse in New Dorp where he recently held a rally.

Unfortunately, his work was defaced by a Black Lives Matter activist within minutes. The vandal was chased off by an angry bystander.

SILive reports that LoBaido completed the line without a permit explaining that Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t get a permit to paint Black Lives Matter on the streets of New York.

“The mayor never got a permit to do that street art, so I guess it’s fair game,” he added.

Hunter Biden’s overseas travel has cost taxpayers more than the Secret Service details for all of President Donald Trump’s children combined.

According to a report from the Washington Free Beacon, taxpayers paid $193,696 for Hunter Biden’s Secret Service entourage — which is nearly four times the recorded security bill of the four adult Trump children—combined.

“While his father Joe Biden was vice president, Hunter Biden traveled with a Secret Service entourage to at least 10 different countries, including China, Qatar, and South Africa, according to a government expenditure database. He racked up 28 separate bills, all of which involved taxpayer payments to a ‘miscellaneous foreign contractor’ or ‘miscellaneous foreign awardee,’” the Free Beacon report explains. “Many of the bills explicitly said that the money was used to pay for accommodations for the Secret Service, but others were scant on details.”

No other presidential family members that are disclosed in the database even came close to the cost of Biden’s travel. The next highest was Malia Obama, whose travel expenses cost taxpayers $41,023.

In comparison, all of Trump’s children combined are recorded to have cost about $40,000.

The database is not a complete look at presidential family spending, however, as the Secret Service withholds a large amount of information for security reasons.

“This is not the first time the Biden family has used the Secret Service for its personal benefit. While in the White House, Joe Biden charged rent for the Secret Service agents stationed in his Wilmington, Del., property, costing taxpayers $171,600 between 2011 and 2017. Biden’s campaign did not respond to a request for comment,” the Free Beacon report added.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has pulled in a massive fundraising haul in the third quarter of the year, raking in more than both Rep. Adam Schiff and Rep. Nancy Pelosi — despite their campaigning for funds off the impeachment efforts.

The progressive left darling brought in $1.42 million, with $1.1 million of that coming from small donations of $200 or less.

Pelosi brought in $1.145 million and Schiff banked $1.26 million. All three of these top fundraisers are running for re-election in 2020.

“Political observers told The Post it is unprecedented for a rookie representative in office for less than a year to out-raise powerful veteran leaders such as Pelosi and Schiff,” the New York Post reported.

“This is very rare, unique — I can’t recall anyone raising this much money during the first year in office,” political consultant George Arzt told the Post. “AOC is a celebrity who gained attention from people across the country, and many on the left support her.”

Brendan Quinn of the Center for Responsive Politics said that Ocasio-Cortez has “become iconic.”

Though Ocasio-Cortez out-raised her fellow House Democrats, she was beat out by several Republicans.

House GOP Minority Whip Steve Scalise raised $3.45 million, former House GOP Intelligence Committee chair Devin Nunes raised $2.6 million, and GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy brought in $1.6 million.
