Dr. Fauci Fucking Lied

077Wear the mask, but respect is optional.

Say it ain’t so, Tony.

I remember back in February whenCOVID-19 was getting constant coverage and was getting pretty fucking serious. Trump just got his fat ass saved by the Senate only a few weeks earlier and corporate news had a brand new void to fill their repetitive 24 hour culture of fear format. Then a novel virus fell on their laps and the news cycle went with it. (And for once it’s a good thing they did and didn’t downplay the severity of the spread)

It only took weeks when a few more cases spread out thru the nation after landing in Washington weeks earlier; anxiety was setting in on the general public which shortly progressed into widespread panic as people were grabbing anything they can get to ward off the contagion as liquid soap and detergent and hand sanitizer were ravenously devoured off the supermarket and chain pharmacy shelves (oh and toilet paper too). Then another PPE product was suddenly in hyper high demand; protective face masks. What was once a reliable and cheap staple for doctors, nurses and construction workers were getting cleared off the shelves during the panic buy frenzy.

Around that time, Trump came up with the travel ban against China, then declared the virus defeated and went back to dissing his foes in Twitterworld and golfing then he left whatever news and updated info about coronavirus being broadcasted and published by mass media to be handled by Dr. Anthony Fauci, epidemiologist and career government worker.

When 15 cases suddenly appeared in disparate cities across the nation which Trump remarked would go immediately back down to zero in utter incomprehension of how a disease spread, Dr. Fauci was thrust into the spotlight to tamper the President’s wacky summations which at the time provided sanity and relief to the press and the public.

When the press queried Dr. Fauci about preventive measures to defend against contagion he advised the American citizenry to thoroughly wash their hands for 120 seconds, stay six feet apart at all times in public places and not to touch their faces with their hands (and that includes face palm reactions). Then he advised the nation that protective face masks were not necessary for daily use and it was best and in the long run safer if those masks were instantly available and sufficiently supplied to hospitals so doctors and nurses that need them and use them the most (which he repeated to a national televised audience on 60 Minutes as COVID-19 was ravishing Northern Italy killing hundreds of people a day.)

 

At the time this was a rational response from the good doctor, these masks needed to go to essential workers in the front line to battle the insidious contagion.

After this, Dr. Fuaci has been the go to good guy face wrestler to President Trump’s bad guy heel wrestler with corporate news, celebrity entertainers and the majority of citizens. The reliable arbiter of all information about COVID-19, especially during the nadir of President Trump’s heinous interpretations of the disease when he looked to his task force and suggested injecting bleach and UV rays to stem the spread of the pathogens inside the body.

In this current health crisis with no determined end in sight, Dr. Fauci was and is still revered like a rock or a movie star in a world where those icons don’t currently exist. Which is why it’s quite a dismaying and revolting shock with what he flippantly said a few weeks ago on some news blog I never heard of called The Street:

“Well, the reason for that is that we were concerned the public health community, and many people were saying this, were concerned that it was at a time when personal protective equipment, including the N-95 masks and the surgical masks, were in very short supply,” Fauci said. “And we wanted to make sure that the people, namely the health care workers, who were brave enough to put themselves in a harm way, to take care of people who you know were infected with the coronavirus and the danger of them getting infected.”

Masks are not 100% protective. However, they certainly are better than not wearing a mask. Both to prevent you, if you happen to be a person who may feel well, but has an asymptomatic infection that you don’t even know about, to prevent you from infecting someone else,” said Fauci. “But also, it can protect you a certain degree, not a hundred percent, in protecting you from getting infected from someone who, either is breathing, or coughing, or sneezing, or singing or whatever it is in which the droplets or the aerosols go out. So masks work.”

So right now, unequivocally, the recommendation is, when you’re out there particularly if you’re in the situation where there is active infection, keep the distance phsyically and wear a mask. So although there appears to some contradiction of why weren’t you saying this then and you’re saying this now, the circumstances have changed, that’s the reason why.

My fucking eyes and ears must be deceiving me, but no that’s definitely the good doctor.

Say it ain’t so Tony.

But he did say it. He said it loud and as disingenuous just like all the misinformation that was given to Americans from the start of the coronavirus outbreak took the country by storm and under siege to this day. Of which he was a seminal part of.

In a way, Dr. Fauci is dropping this as if it’s OK to reveal the truth now because of the three month window, which is kind of like the amount of time that has to elapse when you make a joke about a dead celebrity or a tragedy with high casualties. Except this outstanding revelation would have saved hundreds of thousands of lives if Dr Fauci legitimized the usefulness of the masks instead of keeping it like a secret for 4 months.

It might be vitriolic to call Dr. Fauci a lying prick and hyperbolic and inappropriate as well given that he’s still the all star cleanup hitter and is still the only trustworthy official on Mike Pence’s coronavirus response team that Trump authorized back on leap day 2020 but his response in that video is terribly and blatantly contradictory, confusing and condescending. Especially the last paragraph there where he quipped about the “appearance” of “some contradiction” as if the 320 million citizens who are asking his hypothetical question are the ones contradicting themselves then caps with a nyah nyah response since the circumstance is quite convenient for him now because of his status as the nation’s epideomologist. (It’s also quite convenient for all elected officials running states and cities who get to determine whose essential enough to run a business or not and where gatherings are allowed or forbidden.)

The guy is trying to cop out of the fib he made with the subtlety and sleaze of a snake oil salesman or a public relations tool. But technically that’s actually part of Dr. Fauci’s job in the administration besides mopping up after Trump’s erroneous COVID takes and his and Pence’s arrogant defiance to avoid wearing the masks themselves. Because even though Anthony Fauci is a doctor first beloved and trusted by the people and starstruck journos from corporate news networks and newspapers, he’s still a bureaucrat and serves at the pleasure of the President who happens to be a obstinate self-serving motherfucker and also a careerist because dishonesty is essential to his job as one.

Consider Fauci’s other rather odd circumstantial moments before and after he recommended with conviction that it was unnecessary to wear masks . During an interview with Greg Kelly in January, Fauci told him and the United States that the novel virus was nothing to be alarmed about at that time and then on March 26th, Fauci suggested wearing the mask not because Trump declared a national emergency but to wear it symbolically as a sign of respect to others while still claiming of how ineffective they are against infection. This notably stands out because President Trump has never been seen wearing a mask since the outbreak exploded and still refuses to this day. But a sign of Fauci’s circumstantial convenience narrative that he used on The Street was revealed in a CNN interview with Jake Tapper when he made a Faucian Slip about the prospective data of the amount of cases to deaths from COVID-19 as he predicted the amount of deaths under his tongue after he used that same number to predict the amount of cases.

Going by these appearances, the good doctor Fauci has been eloquent yet still dishonest and has exhibited quite a proclivity for double talking and double backing on his statements and advisories.

It was around this time that (most) state governors decided to ratify mask mandatory wearing and social distancing guidelines, but a majority of Americans still did not adhere to them. Despite the lionization of Dr. Fauci by corporate news and social media, he still was not deemed credible by masses of people. Particularly in the young adult demographic and Trump’s base.

And despite Fauci’s ill-advisory recommendation for people to be selfless and not buy masks; hospitals were still under supplied of face masks as well as other PPE’s like smocks and gloves and COVID-19 naturally spread like wild fire, infecting the entire country. As of today over 120,000 people have died (and still dying but in smaller daily increments) and infections are still going up as more get duly tested.

Unfortunately, it didn’t stop the mass panic buying of them by the general public and also from greedy wholesalers looking to gouge prices because of the scarcity of the product which went along with hand sanitizer and rubber gloves, bringing the prices of these cheap items to upscale retail price levels, leading to bare shelves in stores everywhere. Making it unavailable and unattainable for the people suddenly alarmed by the novel virus encroaching into their zip codes. The PPE shortages got so extreme that in New York City, NYPD Chief Patrick Monahan ordered cops to pick up steal hundreds of thousands of face masks from a FEMA warehouse that were meant to go to hospitals that were ran out of them, but got pinched by Dr. Oxiris Barbot of the City Health Department who caught the brazen heist and fed the chief his lunch by cursing his ass out and getting the masks to doctors and nurses that were already getting swamped with COVID positive cases. What makes this police high brass malfeasance even worse is that a vast majority of cops are constantly photographed without masks on.

But the most warped thing about Fauci’s circumstantial advisories is that even the emperor of China, the nation were the virus originated, advised his citizens (and the world) to wear the masks in January. Which makes it bizarre (and suspicious) that Fauci would blow even that off considering everyone is blaming that nation for birthing coronavirus. It also didn’t help that the majority (or maybe the entirety) of the masks were made in China and Trump’s travel ban against them had an impact on exportation.

The most bothersome thing about Fauci’s evolution from his initial lackadaisical response in January as the novel virus decimated Wuhan to his immediate dismissive to not buy masks in February is that what if he did take this seriously like you would expect a professional virus analyst to do. Maybe Trump could have fully authorized the Defense Production Act sooner to replenish the National Emergency Stockpile, then masks and tests would have been mass produced earlier for everyone to wear and get access to, certainly over hundreds of thousands of citizens wouldn’t have perished, millions of people wouldn’t have contracted the disease and millions of people wouldn’t be out of work and the country wouldn’t be mired in a new depression.

But Dr. Fauci never asked or advised that, he just did his and is still doing his job like a good careerist and bureaucrat. But it’s enhanced with iconic status and celebrity in an era when there really is no interest in celebrities or icons. Which only enhances his credibility despite the utter lack of it. Which is why he can circumvent questions from a starfucking talk show host or timid corporate news show hosts with aplomb and not get followed up with jedi mind trick responses like this after following Trump’s bullshit with his own palatable pile of bullshit with his fog of war take. Which was based on another tragedy that also cost over hundreds of thousands of needless deaths.

 

The unsettling problem is Big Tony is still around giving interviews and making statements while Trump is still calling the shots. In a way, Fauci is not out of place in Trump’s administration, because he’s just another self-serving deceiver in an administration full of them. He’s definitely not going to resign because he’s still the only one most of the public still believes, fortunately for him it’s hard to play catchup to what even the seemingly credible people say in a 24 hour news cycle integrated with social media platforms that update every minute.

And Fauci is needed now more than ever because COVID positive cases are rising again in the southern states that opened too soon. Plus a vaccine trials are occurring and we need the good doctor to mollify us with more vague determinations and sound(s good) advice to give us a semblance of hope to all of us as we live under the New Normal in COVID19World

Who knows, maybe working for Trump and covering his fat ass for continuing to undermine the contagion as his popularity wanes, Fauci will quit and explode into a rage and use his iconic status for good, making the rounds on TV and streaming media while yelling about how much he hated working and lying for the President.

But now that the (his, our) circumstances have changed. For the time being or for good if a vaccine doesn’t surface or if another flu strain suddenly manifests. Do like Big Tony says (now), keep the distance and wear the mask.

Technically with all this uncertainty, mostly by Fauci, you really don’t have a choice.

That’s the reason why.

 

 

 

New Bad Days 74, NYPD ATTACKS!: Cops Integrate Social Distancing Guidelines With Mixed Martial Arts And Selectively Enforces Them Against Black And Latinx People And Then Spend A Week Oppressing And Brutalizing Black Lives Matter Protesters While Defending A Stupid Unrealistic Unenforceable Curfew And Systematic Police Brutality With Even More Brutality As Burglaries, Shootings, Auto Theft, Muggings, Slashings, Stabbings, Random Assaults, Random Molestations, Illegal Fireworks Usage, Sexual Assaults, Drag Racing, Reckless Driving, Street Fighting, Hold Ups, Murders And Homicides Increase In Stats Not Seen In Decades

nypdheadkneel.2e16d0ba.fill-661x496

During the last two months of the lockdown of the five boroughs and with a sizeable amount of cops stricken by COVID-19, home and commercial property burglaries and vehicle theft shot up in massive numbers in May as murders and robberies show higher incremental ticks. Crime in the subway made significant gains even though service is cut and commuting went down nearly 90%. Shootings went up by a lot (especially in Brooklyn) which shouldn’t be surprising considering you can be more than six feet to hit your target. Drag racing also went up in the last 3 months as the city was mostly barren from mass isolation.

As May began Governor Cuomo gave the order to kick the homeless off the trains including banning every other commuter from the subway at 1 am until the clock struck 5 so the trains can get thoroughly cleaned. Which had no effect with the homeless who prefer to sleep during the morning and noon hours as the lower paid contractors deftly cleaned around them. 

And that’s only a sample of NYC’s Spring of chaos and disorder…

Manhattan

In the East Village, a man and a woman got confronted by a group of cops and were tackled to the sidewalk and handcuffed for not following city pandemic protocols well enough for them. A man witnessing the senseless and arbitrary detainment walked over to the corner and was immediately faced with one of the cops who cursed him out and challenged him to fight while pointing his taser at him. The cop then punched the man in the face and took him down to the pavement, placed his knee on his neck as his partner cuffed him while both of them were not wearing their masks properly.

This excessive use of force went on at precisely the exact time when hundreds of rich young people were sitting on the grass at a pier in the West Village were violating those same protocols but not wearing masks and sitting close to each other.

The cop who sat on the bystander’s head is responsible for over $200,000 in lawsuit settlements for seven prior infractions of excessive force, falsifying arrests and picking and getting into fights with citizens while on duty.

Also in the East Village, a man walked into a deli and threatened a worker with a serrated hunting knife even as two cops were making an order at the counter. The worker snatched the knife out of the man’s hand and then the cop shot him with a taser as he walking out of the store which had no effect on him and pushes her to the ground then challenges cops even as he’s surrounded. He gets shot down after he charged at one of them.

Again in the East Village, a man who held sex baccanal airbnb parties in his townhouse last year beat up and strangled his girlfriend in his apartment.

And again in the East Village, a man died after a gun he was carrying while walking outside went off and shot himself in the leg.

In the Upper East Side, a man got grabbed by the cops on pandemic protocol patrol at a restaurant where most of the people were not wearing masks or social distancing. Then one of the cops body slammed him and caused his head to hit the pavement. The crowd of rich young white people witnessing the excessive force meted by the cops only gawked and made snarky comments. Nobody got a summons, not even the restaurant that was violating the crowding regulations.

Also in the Upper East Side, a man got killed crossing the street by an 18-year-old man driving a Beemer.

Again in the Upper East Side, two men impersonating cops held and robbed a jewelry store at gunpoint after they lied to the owner they were there to inspect the area for looters.

And again in the Upper East Side, a man stole a flashy sports car and got caught by the cops. After being released for that theft, cops caught him with a stolen ninja motorcycle on the subway.

In the Upper West Side, over 200 migrating birds died when they collided into a luxury apartment building that acts like a mirror to the sky they fly in.

Also in the Upper West Side, a humongous branch broke off a tree and landed on a group of people having a birthday party in Riverside park.

Again in the Upper West Side, two men were brutally stabbed to death inside a public housing building. The killer is still on the loose.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man shot and killed his wife and himself in a murder/ suicide in their apartment.

And again in the Upper West Side at the 72nd St. Station, a man grabbed a woman as she was about to board the 3 train and dragged her to the end of the platform and tried to rape her but the woman escaped. He then took the train to the Prospect Park Station and knocked a woman down with a punch and tried to rape her too.

Also in Harlem, a man brutally eviscerated his boyfriend to death inside his apartment then set in on fire. When the cops and the FDNY came, the man obstructed them from entering the building while standing buck naked at the front door.

Again in Harlem, a towering fire destroyed a children’s clothing store.

And again in Harlem, a woman got into a tirade with workers with her mask down at a supermarket because they refused to let her return a loaf of bread.

And again in Harlem, a woman was shot at twice and another woman was stabbed in the back during a domestic dispute inside an apartment. No word on who did the attacks.

And again in Harlem, a man threw a large firecracker at a homeless man sleeping on the sidewalk as he runs away while his friends film the explosion and watch the flames catch on to him.

Clockwork Orange 20 fucking 20

And again in Harlem, a man got stabbed in the head with a knife and walked it off while bystanders swarmed on him like seagulls on halibut with their cellphones.

In Soho, a man took some bricks and smashed the windows of three high end boutiques then robbed cash from the registers.

Also in Soho, crooks ripped off plywood covered with art from a store that an artist designed who was making them for a charity group.

In Midtown at the 59th St/Lexington Ave. Station, a xenophobic man assaulted a man and tried to kick him off the 4 train because he thought he had COVID-19 because of his nationality. The victim is a professional nurse.

Also in Midtown, a man challenged three cops to a fight then pulled out a gravity knife and menaced them with it. Then one of the cops shot his taser to take his ass down.

Again in Midtown, a woman got into an argument with another woman and called her vile racist tropes.

In Penn Station, an argument between two homeless men on the subway platform led to one of them getting stabbed multiple times in the chest. The station has become a shelter-in-place for the city’s thousands of homeless people who are too scared to stay in shelters in fear of catching COVID-19 and getting either robbed, assaulted or even killed.

In Times Square, a MTA worker lost control of his truck and crashed into a soda pop delivery truck.

In Downtown Manhattan at the Wall St. Station, a woman attacked an conductor after she kicked the door of his cab to make him come out and then jumped him as she slashed him with a knife and punched him repeatedly as he was still driving the 2 train. The conductor stopped the train while in the East river tunnel and managed to dodge her and was able to get back in his cab and bolt it and get to the next stop in Brooklyn, where she got off at Montague St and ran away.

In East Harlem, a gangbanger got shot to death on the street.

Also in East Harlem, a man got shot to death in front of a Burger King.

Again in East Harlem, an off-duty city bus driver and auxiliary cop shot his sister-in-law to death inside a superintendents apartment where his wife was hiding from him after he chased her on the street. Then he stabbed her husband when they got into a struggle for the gun. Cops arrived and shot the city worker down and killed him after he disobeyed orders to drop the knife.

And again in East Harlem, a man was shot to death while waiting for the bus because he got off his job when the subway was shut down at 1 a.m.

And again in East Harlem, a man attacked a 64-year-old woman from behind, put her in chokehold and threw her to the concrete and strangled and raped her. He then whipped out his dick and rode away on a Citibike and left her for dead with her shirt off and face down on the ground. The victim fell into a coma and died weeks later from her injuries.

And again in East Harlem, a man got shot in the hand during an argument.

The man was released twice this year after he randomly sexually molested a woman on the street and assaulted a bunch of people on an L train and also spit on a woman’s face. New York State’s bail reform program is a policy failure.

In Washington Heights at the 163rd St. Station, a sick freak stalked a woman and licked her butt as she was walking up the stairs.

Also in Washington Heights at the 168th St. Station, a man was found dead lying on the floor of the C train. The city’s homeless services claim they tried to get this man into a shelter before he took the train to his demise. It’s a wonder if they couldn’t tell he needed to go to a hospital.

Again in Washington Heights, a pizza delivery man was jumped by three men as he was locking up his bike. While struggling to defend himself rolling on the ground with one of the thugs he pulled out a knife and tried to slash him as his cohorts stole rode away with his ride.

And again in Washington Heights, a man cursed out and spat on a cop during a traffic stop then got knocked on his ass trying to ride away.

And again in Washington Heights, a man grabbed a woman walking in a park and sexually molested her then snatched her necklace and ran away.

And again in Washington Heights, two men stalked a 74-year-old man as he was walking home and jumped him when he got inside his apartment building and held him at gunpoint and robbed $300 and his cellphone.

And again in Washington Heights, a man ambushed a woman walking on the sidewalk and dragged her into a park and forced him to give him oral and then robbed her jewelry in broad daylight.

In Hamilton Heights, a scumbag stalked a woman into her apartment building then jumped her and punched her in the face. He then tried to rip her pants off, but the woman kicked his ass yet he still was able to steal her cellphone. The woman works as a nurse and she came down from upstate New York to assist in helping patients recovering from coronavirus in the city. Making her a double hero.

Also in Hamilton Heights, a man found a dead body in a freezer at his mother’s apartment while he was cleaning the place up.

In Kips Bay, hundreds of homeless people that got kicked out of the subway because of Governor Cuomo’s shutdown of the trains between 1 and 5 a.m. got picked up by the city in buses and driven to the worst homeless shelter in the city by Bellevue Hospital and wound up sleeping on a stairwell and on the floor by an exit door.

Also in Kips Bay, two homeless men brawled over a place to sleep on the street, culminating with one of them beating the shit out of the other with a metal rod.

In Chelsea, a homeless man got killed when he got hit by a train walking in the PATH Tunnel between stations.

Also in Chelsea, a construction worker got killed when a fire extinguisher exploded in front of him and two other workers got injured from the sharpnel inside a building being worked on despite the city shutdown. Cops responding to the accident rammed their car into another vehicle while driving the wrong way heading for the building, causing injuries to themselves and breaking the arm of the woman they hit.

In Greenwich Village, a xenophobic man threatened to hit a woman with a bottle while blaming her for spreading coronavirus.

In the West Village, a man randomly punched a woman in the face then he was chivalrously beaten down by a group of men and left lying unconscious on the pavement.

Also in the West Village, an idiot nearly drowned in the Hudson River when he tried to retrieve a frisbee that his friends threw over his head.

In Midtown, five looters effortlessly broke down the facade of a drone store and stole everything inside.

Also in Midtown, a woman riding her bike got crushed to death after she ran the red light and accelerated to ride past a bus and got clipped the rear wheels and fell under the wheels as it kept going.

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man drove all the way from Queens just to set a police car on fire.

In Manhattanville, a man stabbed two men with a machete on a city bus as he was walking out.

In Tribeca, a man failed to break into a small business got caught by cops with a crowbar in his hand while trying to break into a nail salon. The burglar was released without a bail for a prior break-in and was due to appear in court for it.

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man got held up and robbed at gunpoint in a hotel room by a man he arranged a hook up with on an app.

In Fort George, five men wanted for robbing app-food delivery men of their ebikes, cash and cellphones mugged two more delivery men as they were making deliveries.

In Greenwich Village, a man got run over by a postal truck driver as he was backing his vehicle up to make room for the city bus.

In the Financial District, a woman punched her boyfriend in the face and then she shot him the leg, then she got in her car and took another shot at him as she drove off.

In Gramercy Park, a drunk driver smashed an SUV in an intersection and sped off the wrong way three blocks and crashed into a NYPD patrol SUV.

Also in Gramercy Park, a man randomly punched a 92-year-old woman in the head as she walking on the sidewalk passed him, causing her to fall onto a fire hydrant. The lowlife takes a look behind to see his victim lying there and strolls along, which should be expected by a thing that has a century of priors. The woman is now afraid to go in the street by herself, even though the NYPD is biggest police force in the world. Maybe Shea can send one of his CTU cops in full body armor and AR-15 to walk her to the doctor’s office.

In the Lower East Side, owners of a bar decided to violate pandemic protocols and opened up their non-essential business, turning it into a speakeasy exclusive for rich covidiots suffering from pandemic fatigue. Bitches.

Also in the Lower East Side, a man stabbed his daughter inside a homeless shelter in the Upper West Side and tried to blame it on two muggers who robbed him.

Again in the Lower East Side at the Delancey St. Station, a xenophobic woman profanely admonished and slurred a woman by accusing her of not wearing her mask right and then smacked the cellphone from her hand.

And again in the Lower East Side, a man was stabbed during a fight with another man and left on the concrete in a pool of blood.

And again in the Lower East Side, two men broke into a Vietnamese restaurant and robbed an Ipad.

And again in the Lower East Side, a man took a brick and smashed a window of a bar and a Japanese restaurant and robbed them of $300 and over 2 grand worth of booze. The thief has already hit 14 other similar joints and has amassed a total of $30,000 worth of booty.

And again in the Lower East Side, wealthy young White people were drinking booze in public and not wearing masks or standing six feet apart in front of bars and a “bakery”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One man is responsible for 18 burglaries of restaurants and bars and the theft of over $30,000 in cash, booze and computer pads. A sum of the break-in’s were accessed by cutting vinyl doors. And we’re supposed to bail some of these joints out when they are basically making it easy for crooks to rob them?

In Central Park, a woman got pissed off and panicked when a man asked her to put her dog on a leash and then she made a bogus 911 phone call to police and told the operator that she was menacing her and her dog, which she was exploiting by making the dog agitated to sound like she was being attacked.

Also in Central Park, a man grabbed a 9-year-old girl’s behind then attempted to kidnap her.

Again in Central Park, a man riding a bike crashed into a woman while she was jogging, hitting her hard enough to put her in the hospital and in critical condition. The man was not charged and the cops reported the incident as if the woman was at fault for appearing “without warning” to the biker.

In Inwood, a man committed suicide by hanging himself on a tree in a park.

In Downtown Manhattan at the Fulton St. Station, 3 cops having dinner (or lunch) got sick from drinking shakes even though they tasted funny and wound up going to the hospital. The NYPD then sent their CSI unit there on the suspicion that the food poisoning was intentional but the case was dismissed because the workers mistakenly put the shake mix in too soon after they cleaned it.

It still didn’t stop some shithead lieutenant and panic tweeting from the NYPD unions from spreading a bullshit lie about the “incident” and trying to use cancel culture to target a business and discredit a social justice movement. But embarrassingly worse is treated this with such severity that Shea’s NYPD had two cops guard the weaponized frosty beverage.

Brooklyn

In East New York, three cops enforcing social distancing guidelines (which is not a law) roughed up and detained a man who was smoking a joint with his friends while not wearing their masks. A man intervening in the arrest got knocked out by a cop who punched him in the face and then banged his head on the ground and put his knee on his back to restrain him.

Also in East New York, as three cops took down a  man and punched him as he was face down on the concrete during an arrest, one of the cops threatened to arrest a group of men for not wearing a mask as they filming the collar as they were standing on a stoop where they live. The cop had his mask on but it wasn’t covering his nose.

Again in East New York, a man getting arrested by cops for violating social distancing guidelines got the attention of passerby who assembled on the sidewalk which included a man filming the collar with his cellphone. The crowd got agitated when they saw almost all of the cops not wearing masks to prevent spreading COVID-19.  The man filming the brazen hypocrisy and violating by the NYPD immediately noticed that the deputy inspector was there supervising the over deployment of police for one guy.

Then one of the maskless plainclothes cops (whose ID badge number was covered by a blue and black strip) attacked and assaulted a man and threw him to asphalt as his fellow officers held him. The man who kept filming got pushed back by a uniformed cop who menaced him with his club. Then another plain clothes cop attacked the man after he got a clear shot of the man of the man that was arrested for yelling at the cops for their pandemic protocol infractions.

And again in East New York at the Euclid Ave. Station, a homeless man got irate when a conductor told him to get off the C train because it needed to be clean and then he ran up to his face and spit on him.

And again in East New York at the Van Siclen Ave. Station, a MTA worker was being sexually harassed by a man through her cab door window. Then the man broke into her cab and sexually molested her but the woman kicked his ass and locked him in the car as the train arrived at the next station.

And again in East New York, a man was shot to death on the street from a fusillade of bullets in a drive-by.

And again in East New York, a man was stabbed to death in front of a grocery store.

And again in East New York, a man got shot to death by a clerk after he tried to hold up his store with a knife. Moments earlier, the slained man told his father he left his keys there.

And again in East New York, a man got shot in the leg by a stray bullet as gunfire went off during a street memorial for a rapper.

And again in East New York, two men were shot at in an apartment. The gunman left one man dead from a blow to the head and the other wounded with blasts to his stomach.

And again in East New York, a man got killed and another man got shot in the leg while they were sitting in a van during a drive by shooting.

And again in East New York, a man got shot to death in broad daylight while washing his car.

And again in East New York, a man stabbed his boyfriend to death with an ice pick.

And again in East New York, a DJ got shot to death at a house party in a revenge killing for a rapper that was murdered weeks before.

In  Crown Heights, two men ganged up on one man during a fight on the street as one of them shot him in the ass and his accomplice stabbed him twice.

Also in Crown Heights, a man got stabbed to death in front of an apartment building.

Again in Crown Heights, cops sent to enforce social distancing guidelines at a park took down an arrested a man for some reason. Then as his friends start yelling at the cops as they walk him out, the cops return and violently take down one of them and swarmed at a bunch of other men filming that arrest on their cellphones. This commotion was followed by cops in three patrol SUV’s driving on the parks grounds notably one that stopped short on a basketball court. A majority of the cops weren’t wearing masks.

The George Floyd Protests

Cops clashed with the protesters immediately at the start of the demonstration at Union Square as 200 people tried to march forward and cops randomly arrested attacked anyone after people in the crowd threw bottles, bricks, a garbage can and one attempted to steal a taser.The protest moved downtown and the clashes resumed. Over 70 protesters were arrested.

At Barclays Center in Brooklyn, the demonstrations against systemic police brutality reached critical mass as thousands of people assembled by the arena right in the face of the NYPD standing in battle formation, there to supervise and maintain law and order. Which they violated immediately with their robotic misinformed warnings accusing people of illegal assembly and followed with charging the crowds with naked aggression.

When the NYPD tried to move all who were detained to the precinct stations, a bus driver refused to assist them in solidarity with the movement stemming from an order from his transit union.

With the marchers heading towards Flatbush, a cop accompanied by a lieutenant badgered a young woman in front of him to move and smacked the phone out of her hand. When she walked past him again, the cop viciously pushed her to the ground close to the curb where she could have cracked her skull.

More clashes continued in Manhattan and Brooklyn as the demonstration arrived at Foley Square. Protesters amassed in thousands taking over the road on West Side Highway in Manhattan and marched in Staten Island where Eric Garner was tortured and killed by a cop on the street 6 years earlier in July. NYPD mass mobilization and aggression against the protesters by Barclays Center fueled the continuing chaos on the streets as cops sprayed chemicals on protesters which included two State Assembly Officials marching in solidarity with them. Protesters volleyed back projectiles at the NYPD miltia, hitting a cop in the face with a brick. Over in Brooklyn, demonstrations split up into divisions in different towns as tensions continued to get heated between the NYPD and the protesters as cops administered pepper spray throughout the crowd while a cop walked up to a man, pulled down his mask and sprayed mace in his mouth.

As the people continued to protest peacefully on the streets, the NYPD continued to disrupt their demonstration with naked aggression by shoving people and hitting them with clubs and even resorting to weaponizing their patrol cars to disperse the crowd, remarkably deploying two SUV’s down a street as people were marching, culminating in a standoff as people threw traffic cones and garbage at one while the backup SUV patrol car barreled through a group of people in on the road and then first one hit the gas and pushed a group down holding a barricade up as they tried to protect other protesters.

Although saboteurs continued to mingle among the masses of demonstrators. At one point, protesters amassed in front of a Target department store to prevent people from looting it and one of the demonstrators noted that they were undercover cops involved in inciting the chaos. A woman from upstate New York got caught trying to ignite a van with a molotov cocktail with four cops inside but failed.

As darkness fell on the evening following the protests and the NYPD battalions went home, the first night of looting of upscale brand stores spread out across lower Manhattan while rioting and destruction commenced in Brooklyn as patrol cars were vandalized and burned including a police van that was set ablaze by a molitov cocktail thrown from a van by a woman as her boyfriend drove, both of them lawyers currently unemployed. The man holds a chair on a community board in East New York. 33 cops got injured as well as hundreds of protesters who got arrested during the melees. At the end of the day, Mayor de Blasio praised the NYPD for “acting appropriately”

After that statement the following day de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD did some positive optics and afterwards got more hyper-assertive and reckless as they obstructed streets in Flatbush to cluster protesters and sent patrol helicopters to fly low to produce wind to throw them off balance and wailed on protesters around the Barclays arena later in the evening, even a reporter. A march in Harlem went awry when some people protesting threw blunt objects at a patrol van that was still occupied by a cop. He got help from other protesters who protected him from the people looking to foment unrest.

A clash in Union Square nearly got fatal as cops smacked protesters with batons and a man hit a lieutenant officer from behind with a brick, compelling a cop to draw his gun on the crowds which clear the street instantly. The saboteur looters continued to follow up the peaceful protests in Manhattan as they tore into the Macy’s flagship store and broke into and robbed more high end brand stores and chain pharmacies as they trailed marches down Broadway from Midtown to Soho, the latter area where the most organized plundering and destruction took place. In Greenwich Village, a cop got hit by an SUV full of crooks as they were making a getaway from a store they robbed. Although there were arrests, there were no sights of a mass formation of cops lined up on the streets like they were deployed against the protesters.

A few days after de Blasio praised his police force for their “appropriate” response to the protests and his mind blowing defense of his police departments weaponization of SUVs to use as cowcatchers to move protesters off the streets, news spread that his daughter Chiara got arrested while she was participating in the protests that involved throwing debris at his NYPD. Then the SBA police union released Chiara’s mugshot, and the Blaz kicked off his morning COVID19 update “media availability” by demanding his constituents to stay home and not exercise their rights to speak out and assemble in public so they don’t contract the novel virus. Even though de Blasio’s NYPD didn’t even enforce the pandemic protocols when rich young White people were congregating in parks in high area median income areas.

Concerned about the clashes and violence on the streets from the cops and protesters and the wanton looting from thieves exploiting the movement for materialistic reason and following a planned riot at the Queens Center Mall in Rego Park that got thwarted by the NYPD, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio announced an 11 p.m curfew and doubled the amount of cops deployed for the demonstrations and opportunity crimes to 8000. Hours later, President Trump mentioned in his talks with state governors that their police forces have to show dominance over the protesters.

Despite Trump’s vile comment, thousands still came out in droves and marched in peace and despite the curfew announcement it wrought the worst destruction and chaos of the citywide unrest so far as the looting and violence spread out in three boroughs even after the clock struck 11 as cops received the brunt of the beatings even with more of them on the street.

In Manhattan, looters tailing protesters down Broadway from Midtown on down the Flatiron District to Union Square tore up the wood panels, bashed windows and pillaged high end stores and chain pharmacies with ease, stealing upscale brand merchandise, jewelry, lux skateboard culture wear and even cough syrup and laxatives.  Small businesses like craft beer stores and smoke shops were not spared by the opportunistic thieves.

Protesters witnessing the bedlam behind them tried to stop them to no avail as they noticed how organized the criminals methods were, which was glaringly apparent at the second night of the pillaging of uber upper class Soho. As luxury SUV’s rolled up on the cobblestone streets followed by street urchins on foot and riding on app-share Citibikes and Revel scooters as they all made off with millions of dollars of merchandise without a single cop in sight. Most of the smash and grab heists went smooth except when one person got shot during the festival like plundering mayhem. Ubers and Lyfts were also utilized by the thieves which led de Blasio to order their app services shut down as well.

Riots also spilled over into the Fordham section in the Bronx. One cop got jumped by three men and barely got up as they fled. As a cop stepped out of his patrol car for only a second when a hit and run driver plowed into him with enough force to knock him 20 feet ahead into a street intersection.

Stunningly, people were rapidly wrecking shops, robbing merchandise from small businesses forced to closed because they weren’t essential to be open during the pandemic and setting fires all over the streets as cops deployed to stop the mayhem stood fast and let the rioting continue and let the Bronx burn again. This horror show was a total contrast to battalion of cops made to supervise and intimidate the protests calling for the end of systemic abuse of authority and race based brutality enabled by police precincts in the United States. Because said battalion remained squarely on the protesters.

The last 5 days saw over 1700 people arrested. As for the looters, 100 of them got arraigned and were instantaneously released because of the failed bail reform policy. While the protesters languished for 24 hours inside dirty cells without water or PPE’s as cops were guarding and monitoring them without wearing masks.

The next day Mayor de Blasio decided to ground the city for a week and advanced the curfew to 8 p.m. ending on Sunday which happened to be the day before the five boroughs were deemed safe to reopen in the “New Normal” under the existential threat of the pandemic as he lectured his constituents exercising their first amendment rights as if they were his daughter. Which did not deter the masses one bit. Thousands of protesters organized to use the first night of the early curfew to march to Gracie Mansion as they amassed on East End ave with chanting and silent vigils (in congruence with the last minutes and seconds of George Floyd’s life) as de Blasio’s NYPD surrounded his house and eight other blocks of the Upper East Side, blanketing it like a fort for the thin-skinned mayor.

With protesters still on the streets hours after curfew heading downtown, a NYPD battalion guarded the Manhattan Bridge as a critical mass of protesters were walking on it and got kettled by cops coming from both sides, leaving them clustered and trapped stories above the East River.

 

While uptown in Manhattan hundreds of cops were chasing demonstrators on the streets. Although the cops locked down Soho after the organized looting of the area, other thievery went on in some other areas of the city with less police presence. de Blasio tried to use this progress as an opportunity to push his narrative of denial but was cockblocked by a video of a bunch of looters dancing over the damages they left behind and then gave effusive (or is it elusive?) praise of the cops restraint again on the bridge while another police militia was beating up protesters on the west side downtown the minute the clock struck 8.

The NYPD was chasing and beating the shit out of anyone who was outside and that included the press. A reporter from Huffington Post was so livid about the violence and oppression dispensed by the cops of which he was a recipient of that he dropped all impartiality and wrote a scathing diatribe of his experience which landed him in jail. Riot cops surrounded and blatantly oppressed two reporters from the Associated Press from covering the dispersing and the physical abuse of the demonstrators, yelling at them to go home while making it difficult for one of them to get back in his car.

Taking inspiration from Donald Trump to enforce domination on the people they serve and protect, cops ambushed a bunch of protesters riding their bikes and assaulted them with billy clubs, ripped off their bikes from their hands and ganged up on professional nurses trying to help the people they brutalized on 3rd Ave. in Midtown; a block away from a NYPD precinct on 51st as they were obviously trying to “go home”.

The NYPD militia in Brooklyn blocked the Manhattan Bridge from protestors looking to go back home to the city and then charged at them as they retreated down Candam Plaza by swinging their clubs and yelling exhortations to go home as if they were sentinels. The cops then trapped them on the street using their patrol cars and unmarked cars and proceeded to violently arrest as many protesters that they could grab.

As protesters were leaving after another day of demonstrating at the Mayor’s house, the NYPD sentinels stalked them and attacked, chasing them on the street and arresting over 60 people on orders from Chief Monihan.

In Whitestone, a group of protesters hanging signs honoring Black Lives Matter and George Floyd on a street overpass were confronted by two men who were offended by their solidarity against police brutality. After one man tore down one of their signs the day before, they were badgered then attacked by a psychopath who tried to run them over with his car then ran out and chased them with a large four blade contraption attached to his arm and chase them with it while accusing them of throwing stuff at his car.

Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio continued their obtuse insouciance with tone deaf statements/endorsements of the NYPD’s barbarity enforcing the stupid curfew. Even though they could easily find out about the violence by going on social media or asking a reporter.

New York City’s police states war with the people started off with a bang with a protest in Brooklyn as Mayor de Blasio finally got to address and face his constituency after avoiding them since the protests started a week ago. (And arriving 20 minutes late with his wife as is wont of Mayor Big Slow)

Naturally, the crowd booed and cursed him out and turned their backs to him as he spoke for about five minutes as he skulked away with his wife that he’s trying to promote for the Brooklyn Borough President role. The pissant Mayor got all huffy after that during his media availability he got paternal and gave a stern warning (whining) to his aggrieved constituents to stop protesting on the streets as if they were his daughter, but mostly because he can’t defend the hyper-repressive actions of the blue wall of ultraviolence.

After an entire afternoon of peaceful marches populated by thousands, the clashes resumed in the town of Mott Haven in the Bronx as riot cops and silly looking body armored cops on bicycles preemptively kettled protesters assembled on the street many minutes before the clock struck eight and then proceeded to strike at them when the curfew was on. A Gothamist reporter unequivocally described the police escalation as a deliberate trap.

Under the command of Chief Monihan, the guy who feigned solidarity at a park by kneeling with other activists, the police continued to cluster the crowd as if there wasn’t still a novel virus pandemic around then actually had a massive horn go off when the clock struck 8 which instantly triggered the NYPD militia into attack mode. While every cop illegally covered their badge numbers with black tape to avoid identification during their organized brutalizing (basing it on their exploitation of fellow cops who died of COVID19 as a memorial), they clubbed and dragged to the ground anyone in their sights, saving most of their brutality for organizers and legal observers and collaring indiscriminately anyone they were able to grab including photographers, medics helping the injured, bystanders not moving fast enough to “go home” and people not even protesting and actually trying to get home from work.

According to Commissioner Shea, this premeditated and coordinated attack on free assembly was based on a gun possession arrest and two people detained carrying weapons of disruption in backpacks that weren’t even close to were the demonstration took place without incident in the afternoon.

A total of 250 citizens were arrested and locked up and cramped in cells together without PPE’s and were forbidden to be visited by their lawyers. While Governor Cuomo finally overcame his obliviousness after seeing a 75-year-old man get pushed to ground by cops in Buffalo, de Blasio maintained his insouciance by blowing off Offenhartz’s account of the rioting cops by saying he had eyes over there who saw a different “reality”. Although it turned out that some of those eyes were city hall aides that also got kettled by the police and somehow de Blasio’s own lying eyes didn’t acknowledge their accounts.

In the Upper West Side in Manhattan, deBlasio’s NYPD’s random and obligatory violence and arrests of protesters violating curfew continued even though it was still light out as if they were making a collective statement themselves, as they dragged a man out of his building and stopped and detained a livid and confused app-food delivery guy, accusing him of not working (he was).

The NYPD’s new and unconstitutional tactics to dominating the public extended to Crown Heights as a bunch of residents were having an bbq party outside their building when dozens of cops in riot gear rolled up and ordered them to get inside their homes because they were technically breaking curfew. Despite everyone complying or trying to comply, the cops unleashed extreme aggression and pushed them back into their building and started rumbling with them inside the vestibule and the hallways. Taking the curfew enforcement to purely paternalistic, fascistic and even idiotic new levels.

While this idiot was trying to break into people’s apartments and close their door while he was still inside, the other cops commenced swinging their billy clubs and cuffing people as backup riot cops stood in a hallway exhibiting a dystopian presence but mostly to prevent other residents to witness how the cops are conducting their arrests of their neighbors.

On Friday, the NYPD continued their attempts to dominate the streets throughout the day during various demonstrations but were held back by elected officials showing up to witness the confrontations and keep the peace. But later in Crown Heights, cops stalked, chased and assaulted demonstrators as they were going home.

The people still came out in droves to protest again on Saturday and de Blasio’s NYPD stood pat and yielded the streets to them. Naturally, no violence occurred except when one psychopath weaponized his car and jumped the curb nearly hitting a bunch of people but clipping a person on a bicycle.

de Blasio then decided to end the curfew that night. Over 2000 people were arrested, nearly hundreds of cops injured and dozens of vehicles destroyed, tens of millions of dollars of merchandise stolen and property damaged in the week of that policy failure. While cops were busy oppressing the public from demonstrating in solidarity and the free press from reporting their arbitrary enforcement of the curfew during the biggest week of unrest in NYC in this century as murders, auto thefts, shootings and burglaries went up and has continued their rapid upward trajectories in the aftermath.

And now you can add illegal fireworks to this list, as explosions in the sky and on the ground have been going off from sundown to sunset for two weeks as thousands and thousands of 311 and 911 calls were made by citizens demanding action from the police and receiving bupkis while patrol cars roll by as mats of firecrackers, m80s and mortars get ignited by anarchic revelers.

And this summer has only just begun. Plus we are still under siege of COVID19 as the streets are still amply deserted and stores are still boarded up. Although the existential threat of a novel virus that’s still infecting dozens of people daily in America did not the deter rich predominantly white hipsters and millenials from returning to their favorite bars a week after the curfew ended, as they opportunistically imbibed their open containers of booze and obstructed sidewalks with impunity in high median income areas like in the East Village with careless blissful oblivion.

When it was only a month ago that de Blasio’s NYPD was exposed for segregating their pandemic protocols by only excessively enforcing it in predominantly Black and Brown lower median income earning areas mostly in the North Bronx and South and East Brooklyn.

Heat map of the five boroughs broken down by precinct that shows areas where summons have been issued. The more summonses issued, the darker the color. Brooklyn and the Bronx have had the most summonses. The 69th precinct in Canarsie had the most.

When questioned about the rash of viral video footage of the cops violent enforcing of the guidelines and the focused targeting of few districts, de Blasio obstinately responded that the NYPD used proper restraint. A statement he would make only three weeks later after seeing the NYPD’s heinous decision to deploy two marked SUV’s to run over protesters in an deadly attempt to disperse them.

While the protests continue peacefully, the citizenry and the cops still remain on edge and at loggerheads. While laws are being enacted to finally clampdown on systematic police abuse (though incrementally), there’s still people on the streets  still yelling “fuck the police” and for their extinction.

Truly historic but dystopian times happening now in New York City…

…your city

https://cdn.cms.prod.nypr.digital/images/image_4_4.2e16d0ba.fill-634x476.pngBring out yr dead. The casualties of COVID-19 and shitty and unaccountable government leadership

The ides of March came roaring after two straight months of escalating crime statistics…and then it suddenly stagnated and all stats dropped very dramatically.

Because COVID-19 came to town.

It was spreading vociferously across the globe and creeping steadily across this nation in a matter of weeks after tens of thousands got infected and thousands die at the city of Wuhan in the Hunain Province of China. Following a man who mysteriously caught the virus in February who worked in Midtown and commuted every day from and back to New Rochelle, leading to that town getting quarantined by Governor Cuomo.

Then people started dying in Washington where it was first found in America, then a rapid rise of cases leading to hundreds of deaths in Northern Italy. This was enough to influence every selfish citizen to resort to panic buying and hoarding in bulk hand sanitizer, bleach, masks and toilet paper. Everyone was running around pretty much in fear despite the rosy complacent statements made by President Trump even while he instituted travel bans.

After various statements and announcements understating the potential reach of COVID-19; the government of China, the World Health Organization and Trump’s Centers for Disease Control started ramping up serious warnings as cases started to rise, most predominantly in New York City. In the face of the global pandemic these harrowing and foreboding developments and signs of society at the genesis of it’s upheaval, the city’s response and defense had to be thoroughly robust and required maximum effort and collaboration from all officials appointed and elected.

Instead your city got Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Yes, Bill de Blasio. Mayor Big Slow de Blasio really lived up to his fucking nickname I gave him by not treating the slow creep of COVID-19 with the severity it truly warranted. With a complacency that mimicked the near lysergic daily denials of President Donald Trump’s handling of the spreading disease that has bankrupted the nation.

When a woman became the first COVID-19 case in Mayor Big Slow’s jurisdiction in Manhattan, suddenly the man who was derelict all summer from his job while running for president last year decided to take the reins and take absolute control in the battle against the invisible enemy. Taking his bizarre response when Ebola hit NYC in his first year in office when a hipster doctor who contracted it decided to go to bunch of cool places in areas of the Two Bridges of Brooklyn and Manhattan when Bill decided to retrace it in an act of bravery in the face of a contagion, Bill decided repeat this act of haughty defiance with a novel virus by (in his own mind) inspiring his constituents to do the same and go to restaurants, bars and see some movie he recommended as talks about an entire state lockdown was being discussed.

Then the dumbass Mayor continued his version of “leadership'” by keeping the schools open, even after concerned parents and even faculty demanded that he shut them down. While blowing off their concerns he was still in contemplation of letting the St. Patrick’s Day Parade go on. When the day came when COVID-19 took over the planet on March 15 2020, Governor Cuomo finally stepped in and closed all schools himself in addition to declaring the entire state of New York shutdown at the end of the week.

Although even with the state order of most businesses to close down especially in ones where the virus can spread the easiest like restaurants, bars, movie theaters and workout gyms; de Blasio in utter defiance of this state of emergency still went to the Park Slope Y to conduct city busi….I mean “work out” one last time at the cost of taxpayers collective money and the sanity of his staffers and the cops assigned to protect him.

Then his insistence on still holding the reins for the COVID-19 response along with his megalomania was driving his Department of Health gonzo. He then continued his pattern of misinformation. Responding surely to palpable frustration of his staffers and the health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot, the mayor decided to take his ego-driven micro-mismanagement stylings to a 311 call center and gave horrendously wrong information to a caller and to prop up his fucking wife’s Thrive program and integrate it with the COVID-19 emergency services. And as expected with an agency that wasted 850 million dollars run by an even bigger megalomaniac and indicative of his barely recent 311, all their advice to callers were wrong.

Following these two weeks of the Mayor’s chaos making in addition his petty feud with his Cuomo, cases accelerated to 10,000 in a matter of weeks as the few local hospitals were getting jammed, none more devastating than the epicenter of the pandemic at Elmhurst Hospital.

https://www.francetvinfo.fr/image/75rxuk8s3-887f/578/325/21315167.jpgDozens of residents line up for coronavirus testing outside of NYC ...

COVID-19 laid seige over the city in New York Minute. Thousands of city service workers were suddenly calling sick and getting infected. Doctors and nurses were not invulnerable mainly because of the widely reported lack of PPE supplies.

Meanwhile, crime went down a dramatic 20% after horrifying gains in major crimes in the months of January and February and it took a contagion to do it even as thousands of cops called in sick.

Then hundreds of people were dying every day as the load was too much for medical staff at hospitals across the five boroughs that bodies were literally being hauled on forklifts like piles of meat. Nursing homes resorted to ugly measures to handle the dying piling up and funeral homes couldn’t handle the onslaught of corpses.

 

But as COVID-19 cases getting hospitalized and casualties kept mounting up; the Mayor, while still micro-mismanaging the response and begging the stingy President Trump to send more PPE’s and ventilators to gravely under-supplied hospitals, under-supplied his constituents of data of where the majority of the COVID-19 positive cases were located. The first one the city put up for weeks had no zip codes and then has the cases and deaths mounted, they put up a comparably more descriptive map with the zip codes after it was reported that Newark, New Jersey had a more detailed COVID-19 case map that included them.

covidmapEUiSdh9XYAA-EIs

This showed that while his constituents were sick and dying, de Blasio and his staffers were more busy machinating results and keeping crucial information about where the most afflicted were located from the public, while giving them an interpretation of transparency while obfuscating the true data. This control measure was laid bear when a photographer had his drone confiscated by deBlasio’s NYPD after he flied it over Hart’s Island as mass graves of COVID-19 casualties were being buried. All of this was just a continuation of secrecy maintenance being executed to keep the schools open by not disclosing if any faculty contracted the virus as de Blasio, Carranza and his cronies and minions made sure they kept the cases hidden from concerned parents and from educators. This criminal insouciance became lethal when a beloved principal from a Brownsville public school succumbed to the disease and died a week after the schools closed. She was only 36 years old.

It didn’t take long when it was revealed that the biggest hot zones came from neighborhoods where the majority are Black and Hispanic. Plus they were working poor people and had further commutes from the city and they were all now considered essential workers and frontline workers. 

Apparently and obviously, if these workers from the north and east parts of the Bronx and South and East and Southeast Brooklyn and Queens knew how heavily contagious their areas were, they probably would have took the proper precautions or understandably be discouraged to come to work. But the essential populace has to come in and make the city run no matter what. Even if they can’t barely afford to live in the city. The economic inequities of the past 20 years made established by the powerful of NYC has ingrained a catch-22 lifestyle for it’s residents most vulnerable to poverty and now a novel virus.

As of this writing, over 20,000 people have died of coronavirus in the five boroughs. The most deaths in a city in the nation and on the planet. Sure, Donald Trump is mostly responsible because he kept exhibiting abject denial of the contagion capabilities for months, but all the evidence was in and de Blasio, being feigning to be a progressive himself is supposed to believe in the science of things in addition to being a vociferous critic of the president. But like his GOP rival, de Blasio was as much in abject denial as he was and is a megalomaniac like him. Maybe even more.

Because this may have been the moment when the city was doomed to be taken over by COVID-19, the biggest, deadliest terrorist cell on the planet. At a press briefing regarding coronavirus and in mere few seconds, de Blasio grabbed the mic from a man and declared that the pathogen’s shelf life on most surfaces was only for about 3 minutes even though it was common knowledge for weeks (even by Governor Cuomo) that it can hang on most common surfaces for about 3 days

 

de Blasio’s proclivity to big foot people was on full display. And despite being called on this by a reporter from Gothamist right there, he kept standing by this ignorant turd of a theory just like Trump kept comparing COVID-19 the common flu for a month.

And the Blaz kept expounding on his idiot theorem for the rest of the week as he bottomed out by saying the virus can’t handle staying on a city surface for long compared to upstate or anywhere else. In Bill’s hollow skull, the coronavirus can tolerate remaining on a door handle in say Buffalo but it can’t handle settling on a Grand Central subway station hand rail for more than 140 seconds.

As with most tragedies that lay permanent damage to society, COVID-19’s chickens came home to roost in the form of reports that exemplified de Blasio’s idiotic interpretation of leadership in the city’s unpreparedness. Most glaringly in the superior response and defense made by the city of San Francisco’s Mayor London Breed, who wasted no time and scheduled a lockdown and the oft-quoted shelter-in-place law that shut most non-essential businesses down on the day of the week when the Blaz was balthering his 3 minute rule for coronavirus. The result saved thousands of more lives and resulted in hilarious juxtaposing of tweets the mayors made on the same day of their most publicized responses.

Truly a tale of two leaders. One who actually took the outbreak and essentially her job seriously and one who was encouraging people to keep mingling and go out on the town, even telling potential vectors to take in a movie 3 days later.

One who responded proactively and one who prioritized leisure over precaution.

Total number of COVID-19 cases and deaths in San Francisco? 1,891 and 33.

Total number of cases and deaths in Mayor Big Slow de Blasio’s and your city of New York? 184,417 and 20,056 and counting. The Blaz’s lethal complacency made mortality rates 6000 times worse.

Now that it has been reported that tens of thousands of people traversing NYC were carrying the virus as early as January and February and that unaware vectors carried it while traveling from NYC, it’s very likely that de Blasio’ twitter movie recommendation might have accelerated the outbreak to the rest of America. Because who else would de Blaz try to inspire to go to restaurants, bars and shows and movies as residents were buying and hoarding all the Purell and toilet paper? Tourists, in the hopes that they will spend as much money before the city was about to lock down.

Mayor de Blasio has spent the last 2 months trying to make up for his fuckups by continuing to cosplay himself as a leader in the fight against COVID-19. And he’s doing this by trying to throw the burden of flattening the curve mostly on his constituents to report any social distancing violations (which led to hilarious results and mocking reports of his own public appearances) or potential street encampments by the homeless population who refuse to go to dangerous and over crowded shelters. He also blabbed about throwing a parade for doctors and nurses while they were still running short on PPE supplies, ventilators and beds for the thousands of COVID-19 patients coming.

The Blaz has kept up his micro-mismanaging as tests are still hard to get for the majority of citizens mostly from the hardest hit hot zone areas, even as he ignores their demands for them.

Most damning of all, if that’s even possible with all the dead and ailing, de Blasio found time to continue his recidivist pay to play city services with his donors. This time with tech gadget wholesaler who donated to his re-election and farcical presidential campaign PAC’s to acquire PPE’s and medical devices for hospitals and adult care facilities and Contractor Gadget still came up short delivering them. de Blasio doesn’t know shit about preparing for a crisis and evidently leading a city during one, but his brain cells get energized the second an opportunity comes up to make sure anyone who gave him money immediately gets a cherry contract with the city.

Bill has also taken to hold a daily live streaming “media availability” to update his constituents and the press regarding case and death updates and all other things COVID much in the vein and in mimicry of Governor Cuomo’s now nationally renowned daily press briefings in vain effort at transparency and accountability to make up for their initial gross negligence at the start of the outbreak. But what these two mooks have done from the start of this plague was basically orchestrate a parody of government preparedness.

 

Meanwhile, back on the streets of New York; crime in the month of March went down a dramatic 20% after horrifying gains in major crimes in the months of January and February, the only exception is a rise in bias crimes against Asian people who are being targeted by xenophobes blaming them for spreading COVID-19. Although vehicular speeding went up because of ample room on the streets from the public sheltering in place. Burglaries shot up because all of the non-essential small business stores are closed. (sans national chain stores). But that is only a small respite since 20% of the NYPD are calling in sick or already infected.

But robberies are starting to creep back up again and it can be attributed to the mask protocols every citizen has to follow, which makes it easier to evade identification from the victims and the cops.  More crime is taking place in the subway, as homeless habitation as increased tenfold which led the MTA to cut four hours of service for thorough cleaning. Car theft has also on the rise. Murders are also going up because the streets are more deserted and unnervingly quiet. All this can be attributed to a depleted police force that’s either sick or are being deployed to make sure no one is less than 6 ft. apart from each other (easy solution and evasion, just take two steps back when 5-O shows) and also of thousands let out of prison to prevent the spread of contagion among the prisoners and the C.O.’s..

With COVID-19 still holding the city under siege, along with the economy in purgatory who knows what the near future and state of society of New York will hold for it’s residents if the money runs out for them and also the state and city’s coffers run by two moronic megalomaniacs heavily busy covering their asses while remodeling themselves as leaders and protectors.

President Trump Makes America Disasterland

Screenshot_2020-04-18 Donald J Trump on Twitter For the first time in history there is a fully signed Presidential Disaster[...]

@realDonaldTrump

“The only thing we have to fear is, fear itself”

                                                                                 Franklin Delanor Roosevelt

Four years after he announced that he alone can fix America; with his 50,740th tweet it sure looks like Donald John Trump has finally gave in to Fear Itself. Because now that he thinks COVID-19 is some kind of super villain terror kingpin or an omniscient and omnipresent entity.

Although the latter is surely apt, because the Invisible Enemy is sure acting like a vengeful God that is constantly brought up and used as a cudgel by the President’s evangelical monetary backers.

President Donald J. Trump tweeted that message above on Easter Sunday, the day of the alleged resurrection of Jesus H. Christ. The day he proclaimed/decreed to a perplexed Fox News Channel reporter that life, society and the economy will return to normal even in the face of thousands of people getting infected, hospitalized and near death’s door and succumbing to the contagion. Hard to tell if President Trump thought that Jesus was going to rappel from the open sky, take the nails off his hands and slay COVID-19 with them, but his cabinet and advisers had to break the bad news to him that his irrational optimism is no match for the pandemic, leading him to responsibly decree that every state was now a disaster area and everything had to shut down and people had to modify their routines and habits revolving around the virus.

In the few weeks since making America Disasterland, deaths brought on by COVID-19 grew into the thousands, none most devastatingly more than in Trump’s home state of New York.

It really is confounding how that being a college educated, successful (but dishonest) businessman whose net worth is alleged to be billions of dollars and convinced almost half of America to put him in the White House would immensely fuck up the response to the nascent outbreak of COVID-19’s rapid spread that led to this national disaster and economic purgatory existence. Although it shouldn’t be that hard to break down. Trump is by all means a simple kinda man.

Now granted the President is not entirely to blame but he sure is responsible despite his flippant denial. After the disease hit Wuhan suddenly sickening tens of thousands and killing over a thousand people in just a few weeks and turned the province into a ghost town, which led to the Center of Disease Control to issue the first serious warning about coronavirus.

But what’s perplexing is that Trump has at his disposal and under his command a vast network of intelligence agencies keeping track of every environmental and sociopolitical event around the world. We got the CIA, NSC, DOI, DARPA and a vast military apparatus to help monitor these agencies. And one of them was the National Center of Medical Intelligence, who were monitoring this contagion way back in November 2019. And it’s most certain that there was a Presidential Daily Brief that collaborated this looming threat from an Invisible Enemy just as there was when a PDB was written up detailing a terrorist determined to strike the United States back in 2001.

But it appears in retrospect that President Trump took the same approach with the reports from China as President W Bush took when he got the PDB on his ranch in Texas a month before the attacks on 9/11/01. Because around the time this report was made, Trump still golfed and held campaign rallies. (If he even got the PDB at all, knowing that a “steady state” exists in the White House)

Then it came to America literally from coast to coast when a nursing home in a small town in Washington led to a spate of elderly residents dying at once and then the next confirmed case popped up in a tiny suburb above the Bronx named New Rochelle when a lawyer contracted the virus. And then passengers on a cruise ship suddenly got infected with coronavirus as it was heading back to shore

As news was spreading about COVID-19’s threat to the U.S a, around this time Trump was not that worried and neither was the World Health Organization, for they both were getting dishonest reports of how the contagion spreads from the government of China who were doing their usual obfuscations and micromanagement of information. Trump then banned all flights from China, then Iran and South Korea and enacted another travel ban at Europe which led to a mass exodus from that continent causing mass clusters of travelers at airlines trying to get back to America.

Then the short month of February came and following these proactive measures, Trump decided to rest on his laurels and showed good composure as he reassured the nation he had the virus contained and controlled and determined that it was going to go away really really soon after he called it a partisan hoax, continuing his well reputed brand of complacent optimism with golfing and entertaining his base with more rallies as the 29 days flew by and cases in the U.S. started to swell including another case in NYC, the president continued golfing and kept repeating his narrative that COVID-19 was “under control”.

It was under control, but not the Invisible Enemy just the dissemination of information about it’s genesis in the U.S. A doctor from Washington who was frustrated at the bueraucratic bullshit going on with the CDC after they distributed shitty COVID-19 tests decided to break protocol and draw up a test on a teenage male who showed symptoms and was discovered positive and then she and her colleagues proceeded to do testing around their area themselves. Then the feds clamped down on her and Trump continued spout diarrhetic falsehoods from his faceanus.

Then the COVID-19 ides of March came crashing down on Trump as the invisible enemy spread across the land as people started dying. Then the W.H.O. finally declared the contagion as a threat to the world. As is wont with Trump when things go awry, he succumbed to repetitive and outlandish statements (and also a quick round of golf) and finally declared a national emergency on March 13. And is wont with Trump he succumbs to spewing falsehoods, ludicrous retrospection and self-contradiction claiming he knew it was a pandemic from the start yet no one knew it was coming. This he said just minutes apart from each other.

What a fucking imbecile.

Expectedly and ultimately as is wont with Trump, he did not preemptively or thoroughly prepare for the novel virus and made some dumbass decisions that truly exacerbated it. Like when he hired John Bolton to run the National Security Council. While the warmonger was machinating regime change invasion plans against Syria and Venezuela, Bolton decided to eliminate the NSC office’s pandemic response team. To think that when Trump was assembling his cabinet after beating Hillary, he didn’t want to hire Bolton because he didn’t like his mustache. Should have went with his first instinct.

And as it’s become apparent now that America is the biggest disseminator of COVID-19 in the world right now, Trump didn’t have a sufficient federal national stockpile of testing kits, ventilators and PPE supplies in case states ran out of them with the rapid amount of positive cases that rose immensely in a few weeks time after he boisterously lied that tests and medical supplies will be available and will save everyone.

But what makes Trump’s horrendous non-response that has resulted in thousands of fatalities in the country he thought he could fix by himself is how miserly he has been with the national stockpile which was scarce to begin with.

Trump then commissioned his COVID-19 task force team and assigned VP Mike “Pontius Pilate” Pence to supervise it, despite having zero medical expertise but his reliance on prayers and heavenly wish fulfillment from an Invisible Man In The Sky falls in line with Trump’s fatal brand of optimism. The president did do the right thing and invoked the Defense Production Act to get corporations to produce PPE’s as hospitals were running out and nurses and doctors were contracting the diseases while rewashing their masks and wearing garbage bags to protect themselves. But he’s only sparingly invoked it and did not authorize it. If it was authorized, companies could have mass produced masks, gloves, scrubs, ventilators and put out quality COVID-19 tests instead of the shitty ones they made that a doctor had maybe thousands of lives could have been saved. But that would have been an acceptance of socialism and Trump and the billionaires that own this plutocracy don’t want that.

Trump’s barely significant invocations contributed to thousands of more citizens getting infected and spreading the disease while unaware (since COVID-19 acts as a sleeper cell in asymptomatic people) so he can meander and then bestow the pandemic response to his co-advisor, son-in-law and lost boy oligarch vampire Jared Kushner and his bolier room styled COVID-19 task force he assembled to manage the dwindling and mass production of the federal stockpile that is dependent of the president’s methodical and moody very strong invoking.

Few days later after thousands of more deaths starting piling up and markedly in the epidemic’s epicenter of Trump’s childhood borough in Queens and state of New York, Jared admonished governor’s demands to save the lives of their constituents, doctors, nurses, government service and essential workers, claiming that the federal stockpile does not belong to them and suggested using innovation to acquire the PPE’s they need. Then Trump administration had to get their data beavers and remix the CDC website to reflect Jared’s heinous gaffe.

What Jared and Trump are with their stingy distribution of the emergency federal stockpile so desperately needed to states especially regarding the pandemic’s epicenter of New York is similar to the slumlord behavior and tactics they adminstered with their apartment building portfolios when they wanted to get rent-stabilized tenants out of their buildings by denying them basic services like heat, water and power and repairs.

But the reason why they are doing these dastardly things that are costing hundreds of lives daily is because the Chamber of Commerce is vociferously against nationalizing companies to produce life saving equipment, which is why Trump is only “invoking” DPA in increments.

Amid the presentnational emergency, compelling industry to undertake massive changes to global production chains would be damaging. (Emphasis theirs)

The EO is seeks to impose major changes on critical industries in the midst of a public health crisis. The ability of businessesto move quickly to “repatriate supply chains”at a time when many businessfunctions are shut down isclose to nil.

While some sectors may be able to boost production of relatively simple products domestically on an emergency basis, forcing industries with complex value chains to shift suddenly is a different matter.

Additionally, at a time when U.S. andglobal financial markets are under tremendous strain, movesby the world’s largest economy to break it trade agreement commitments would send the wrong signal to markets and add to the present financial uncertainty.

Somehow, this Chamber of Commerce’s pernicious and predominant influence on the budgetary and now emergency decisions for America and Americans has barely got any attention on the endless coverage COVID19 porn that’s on corporate news televised and social media and it might be because corporations like Google and Nike are on the COC board. Because of this callous and diabolical machinating, PPE’s are being manufactured and dispensed as luxury products going for ossified prices to the highest bidder. It doesn’t help that COVID-19 tests went to celebrities and pro athletes as well as corporate executives and elected offcials first.

And now the President of Disasterland had to do something he always fought tooth and nail to avoid doing when he screwed over his contractors and clients that built his empire, he had to pay back the nation he was elected to lead for fucking it up. Like his disastrous Taj Mahal casino quagmire in Atlantic City, Trump’s negligence since the start of 2020 as coronavirus was creeping across the planet has put America in economic purgatory, as 26 million citizens are forcing themselves to stay home with the exception of the newly branded “essential workers” and waiting for unemployment insurance and thousands of REAL small businesses have to shut down if they are not deemed “essential”. This led to the massively inequitable 6 trillion dollar CARES stimulus act proving more oligarch welfare and a class action settlement one time pittance payment of $1200 for the working class as they scrounge their savings to pay their rent and creditors until the states “reopen for business”.

But don’t worry nation because the President isn’t. Hell, he has always operated and conducted himself by not giving a fuck. He continues to harangue the press with his fake news refrain and continues to make outlandish statements, comments and suggestions like his current batty remedy of injecting bleach and applying sunlight to prevent coronavirus from spreading. The latter he described as if the sun was like IcyHot.

And now the psycho President is trying to get the nation back to work although sounding less tyrannical than he did not long ago when he was channeling Mussolini by claiming “total authority”, which he didn’t recognize when the Chamber Of Commerce was telling him to back off the DPA order. Although as is wont of Trump, his proclivity for administering authority by contradiction gets worse as he tells his constituency to abide by coronavirus protocols then goes on twitter with exhortations to his base to embrace insurgency and  liberate themselves from the states implementing his own disaster declaration order.

As if all that including hundreds of deaths piling up daily from the contagion and coming up with more trillions for more stimulus bills to bail out America and more importantly to Trump his re-election, we still got to spend another trillion or two for essential  regimes to change and a new cold war to fight.

But at least now everyone will have access to a swab after 3 fucking months as the disease spread, now revealed to have started here around January, as Pontius Pence recently announced that five million citizens got the COVID-19 tests as a harbinger of hope to get the nation’s economy up and running again.

And we will. It’s just another 317 million more citizens to go.

Then after that, while wearing cheap masks, rubber gloves and standing six feet apart as we do our collective daily grind to keep the capitalist system thriving making modest wages and making billionaires even richer, we collectively as a country will pull together to help President Trump Make Disasterland Great Again.

Empire State Building Provides A Dubious And Dystopian Essential Service In Homage To The COVID-19 Epidemic

Screenshot_2020-03-31 Empire State Building on Twitter [1 2] We’ll never stop shining for you Starting tonight through the [...]

Manhattan, New York

As if New York being the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic didn’t give enough stress, fear and uncertainty on the citizenry (and surely the world); the concerned folks that manage the Empire State Building actually thought this rapidly growing crisis needed a visual aesthetic aspect to it.

Explains the NY Post

New Yorkers were left spooked Monday night by a glaring Empire State Building light display intended to honor emergency workers fighting coronavirus.

The iconic Midtown skyscraper announced the debut of a display that began at 9 p.m. Monday, and will continue on through the course of the ongoing pandemic.

“Starting tonight through the COVID-19 battle, our signature white lights will be replaced by the heartbeat of America with a white and red siren in the mast for heroic emergency workers on the front line of the fight,” read a tweet from the building’s official Twitter account.

But to some, in addition to solidarity, the siren induced anxiety, as it spun for the first time surrounded by low clouds.

“The @EmpireStateBldg reminding us that the city is in the middle of an emergency,” tweeted Rita King, who also posted a video of the display depicting an eerie scene.

 King said on Twitter that she fully supports the cause, “but recommend[s] that the siren be replaced by the iconic pulsing heartbeat effect to reassure our heroic healthcare workers that their efforts will succeed, and soothe nervous New Yorkers now sheltering in place.”

 This is inappropriate on so many levels. For it immediately conjures up the tower of Mordor in Lord of the Rings. (Incidentally, a startup business tower in San Francisco literally did this)

https://i.guim.co.uk/img/static/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2014/9/18/1411053132808/854caf6c-05f6-4ae6-8536-3f8b9aeaaee5-620x372.jpeg?width=700&quality=85&auto=format&fit=max&s=3cbde6598c45c9c3cab3009d58d1adae

There are so so many things wrong with what the managers of the Empire State Building did, but for brevity’s and social distancing’s, I’ll whittle down to a few.

One is that it’s already stressful enough for the EMS workers and the NYPD who have to deal with this is face front(the NYPD is the hardest hit so far of all city services), and our doctors and nurses that have to handle the deluge of COVID-19 positive patients with little supplies and hospitals filled to capacity.

The second is that the streets are barren so no one will see this. And it’s more than telling that the local press and corporate news media had to get this footage from a twitter account. This should actually bring up inquiries like how long was this display planned for and did this inherently ghoulish concept spring from the minds of the Empire State Building’s board or from somewhere higher up, like the newly social and corporate news media lionized Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo?

And strike three, since the plan is to have this stupid siren display to continue until the contagion winds down this will get most people nearby or inspire possibly hundreds of others to pack trains and ride to 34th St, leading to a gathering crowd assembled on the street to look up and gawk at it. If the intention (as I think the Empire State Building Trust claims) is to be a visual acknowledgement and homage to our first responders and frontline workers and as a PSA to encourage social distancing, this is an irresponsible and counterproductive way to do it.

But this tone-deaf dystopian display is perfect for those who live in presumably safe spaces from the COVID. Likin in a glass luxury tower or a tenement building repurposed for ossified market rate rents with accessible rooftop amenities to give them an semblance of security as well as nice cellphone pictures for their social media accounts. To validate my theory about the latter, they plan on playing Alicia Keys terrible song “Empire State Of Mind” while it continues it’s apocalyptic flashing (when a more appropriate soundtrack for this creepy shit might be “O Fortuna”).

Most of all, having and continuing this light show for an undetermined amount of time during this epidemic is not providing an essential service. At all. This actually makes a mockery of what’s going on, especially with the rapid amount of cases and resulting deaths going and the revolting fact that the city has to triage public spaces like parks and racetracks to handle the patient overload.

Another thing this bloody light show conveys is that with the city under the reign of the coronavirus, the Empire State Building as well as the city is adding to the culture of fear as well as endorsing a police state with the hopes of the citizenry becoming acclimated and adjusted to it.

Shut this shit off now.

 

 

St. John’s Hospital Outbreak Open House Sale

028

Elmhurst, Queens, New York

Recent available testing for COVID-19 has revealed that over 10,000 people were infected with the disease in just the past week. It also brought upon a general moment of clarity and surely an everlasting fury regarding New York City’s stunning low amount of hospitals to house and care for everyone that will test positive for the disease and certainly for the amount of people that are going through the worst of it.

As the NY Post reported last week when Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio were apoplectic about the low amount of beds that will take for the dramatic rise of cases that have just unfolded over the weekend.

Now everyone pretty much knows that the reason why New York City is was grossly, criminally unprepared for this outbreak; because a lot of them went broke and the state and the city not only didn’t adequately fund them but actually enabled their closings with budget cuts and chummy pay to play land deals which led to crucial health care services getting terminated and replaced with high-end condo towers and housing. Even the rats that burrow in the lots during the nascent stages of development even know this.

A grand example of this devastation and deprivation resulting in this harried urgency to save thousands of lives is the notorious closing of St. Vincent’s Hospital in Greenwich Village, Manhattan which was the biggest MASH unit on 9/11/2001- the previous greatest attack on the U.S.A. this century. What remains of St. Vincent’s now is ultra-luxury condominiums, even though it still looks like a hospital.

But what this post is going to focus on is the former St. Johns Hospital on Queens Boulevard, the boulevard of zombie development.

027

St. Johns was unceremoniously shut down back in 2009 and left hundreds of people out of work and a vast community without to go for urgent health services in case of sudden illness or injury. In 2011, Fun Size Mayor Bloomberg’s Department Of Buildings zoned the property for a mixed-used building to include a mall and a parking lot (even though there the Queens Center Mall is across the street and another mall is two blocks away west).

And like St. Vincents, it still looks like a fucking hospital. For some reason the new owners decided to let the building remain as is.

 

It took 11 years and as our city does not have the beds to put the sick and chronically ill on and nurses and doctors are frighteningly lacking medical supplies like face masks and respirators, it should be absolutely not heartening to know that dwellings are now available. 014015

008

Yes, they are NOW LEASING apartments at the fucking hospital, even while scaffolding is still surrounding the building. Oh, but don’t dare call them apartments, the appropriate nomenclature for the building known as “QB” are “lofts”. I find it curious why they are advertising them as such, even with the kitschy faux bespoke label up their on the banner on that filthy garage.

Now these “lofts” could have been on the market already even as the mayor’s big dumb mouth was talking about instituting a “shelter-in-place” rule and as Cuomo already declared shutting down the schools and was mulling shutting down New York State with the exception of essential services, but these photos were taken on Thursday 3/21. And the owners decided to put a cute little Open House stand by the curb cut going into ramp where the ambulances used to go. 019020

What’s darkly humorous is that this is that this isn’t a heavy pedestrian area, made worse with the barren streets right now. And those rusty scaffolds don’t make the building look hospitable at all (pun intended)

 

Now with the whole damn state of New York officially shut down at sun down and with military vehicles roaming the streets and more aggressive orders to commit to social distancing, it’s fucking pointless to be even looking for a new place right now with views of the boulevard viaduct, shopping malls, the Grand Central Parkway and barely used bike lanes and even including the eviction moratorium bestowed upon the citizenry by our benevolent friends at REBNY.

Although there would be a moment when this would warrant derisive laughter, that is dead and gone. Just like this building which would have been an immense help for the victims of COVID-19 and government officials careless stupidity and their obeisance to their developer overlords and their never ending unsatiated greed for to monetize every crack on the sidewalk.

 

 

 

 

Despite A Global Pandemic And Curbs To Assemble In Public, Public Discourse And The News Must Go On

008

The Wuhan Coronavirus, or as it will be known from now on here as the clinical term COVID-19, has taken New York and the rest of the world by storm. Governor Cuomo has decreed, as well as other governors throughout the nation, a vast crowd control limit of 50 people in public spaces. President Trump buckled down after months of dithering and hoping this shit will blow over and declared a national state of emergency and suggesting crowd limits of only 10 people.

Maybe the most devastating effect it will have from this biological menace to society is the existential threat on free assembly and protests and also on how the news has been and continues to be presented. And as displayed by those two officials and the majority of information disseminated about COVID-19, it’s mostly conflicted and contradictory.

Certain “self-care” experts are already saying you should avoid reading the news more often in order to ward off stress while you have no choice to be cooped up in your apartments. While you definitely won’t get critically ill or die if you isolate yourself from the news, whether legitimate or manufactured, it’s still as much of a health hazard to lose a step on rapidly changing events that are happening under the radar from this pandemic.

Some might even take advantage of this as people are reasonably distracted by any slight symptom they have that will lead to the virus. And predictably Mayor Bill de Blasio has already pounced on it as he blew off a conference call with local journalists citing the current state of emergency but still found ample time to speak to CBS radio and two cable networks ( which surely required an amount of time he could have spoke to the press in city hall to make up his big monster head for the camera lens). Even President Trump is being accountable for once in his presidency and his life by making pressers almost daily, even if he is sowing more confusion with contradictory and tone deaf statements and recommendations.

Which is exactly why we all have to continue following the news, not just on COVID-19 but also on what our elected leaders are doing and saying and to keep in tune with what’s going on in the offices and on the streets even still. If you blow it off, they will feel even more comfortable with being unaccountable for their lies, actions and inactions  With the state locked down and no sports and entertainment to distract as usual, keeping yourself updated and informed will not be that overwhelming. Like sunlight, information and awareness are the best disinfectant.

023The house on Richmond Hill

Bronx

 

In Longwood, a man walked up to two cops sitting in their parked NYPD van and feigned to ask for directions then pulled a gun out and shot at both of them, hitting the cop driving the van in the face and chin as he pulled hit the gas to avoid getting himself and his partner killed.After that shooting, then the man ate dinner a Chinese restaurant.

The next morning, he asked a woman he knew to drive him to his mother’s house but jumped out of the car and ran into a police precinct in Huntspoint and went inside, pulled out a gun and started shooting as cops present there, hitting one officer in the arm. The shooter ran out of bullets and laid down on the floor for cops to arrest and lock him up, but not before the cops collectively beat the shit out of him.

 

The aspiring cop assassin went up to two cops on the street and talked shit to their faces the night before he shot at the police van and he served time for carjacking and shot a person and then wrecked two cars and engaed in a shootout with the NYPD who were in pursuit of him in 2002. He showed no remorse during his arraignment and boasted that he will try to kill more cops when he gets out of jail. Mayor de Blasio condemned the horrific mass killing attempts but because of his notorious insincerity, the NYPD union reps refused him and outright shunned the shameless promoter of America’s #SafestBigCity.

In Pelham Parkway, a woman withdrawing cash from and ATM at a bank was confronted by a woman banging on the glass door demanding to get inside claiming she left her card in there. Sensing that she was being dishonest, the woman inside didn’t let her in. Then when she walked out of the bank, the agitated woman followed her and suddenly was joined by two other women who then attacked her and beat her down to the pavement, leaving her with head trauma and injuries to her leg.

The victim filed a report to the NYPD six days after the attack then started to feel ill and went to a doctor. The doctor told her she had blood clots in her ankle from the assault that need to be treated, but the woman went home because she couldn’t afford the expense of high cost medical bills. Four days later, she died from her injury and the woman that stalked and beat her got arraigned for murder.

Also in Pelham Parkway, a man got killed by a hit and run driver while he was crossing the street.

In Riverdale, a man got shot after arguing with two men who were banging on his door that he wasn’t the person they were looking for.

In Mott Haven at the Brooks Ave. Station, a man menacingly stared at a woman on the 6 train then jumped on her, beat her profusely on the floor and slashed her face.

Also in Mott Haven at the Cypress Ave. Station, an 18-year-old man accessed the conductor’s door on the 6 train and yelled (rather amusing) profanities to commuters on the platform.

Again in Mott Haven, a man with a cane walked into a deli and shot a worker to death at point blank range where he stood behind the counter.

And again in Mott Haven, a man and a woman with a baseball bat approached a man coming out of a deli and an argument between both men ensue as the woman starts twirling her bat and then her accomplice punches the other man and the woman takes a swing at his mid-section.

In Kingsbridge, a man broke into two rooms at a dorm house and stripped and sexually assaulted one woman as she slept and menacingly stood over another woman while she was lying in bed two weeks later.

Also in Kingsbridge, two men who work at a car dealership got into an argument that escalated into one of them taking a knife and stabbing his co-worker to death.

In Kingsbridge Heights, a two year old getting a haircut got injured and cut by shattered glass hitting him when a man with a baseball bat bashed the barbershop window.

In Unionport, a man stabbed his father and brother in their apartment and then went to his girlfriend’s apartment and stabbed her to death.

In Mount Hope, a 73-year-old reported missing was found dead and frozen lying in a playground by the Cross-Bronx Expressway. The woman was suffering from dementia.

In Concourse Village, a man spraypainted a graffiti distress plea on an NYPD cruiser. This looks like the same guy who wrote CHAKA on another patrol car last year.

In White Plains, an ex-cop and four associates of his were arrested for selling meth and the date rape drug for 3 years in Manhattan and Westchester.

Brooklyn

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2020/02/child-hit-schoolbus-fatal-1-1.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&strip=all

In East New York, a 10-year-old girl walking to school with her brother got killed when an incompetent school bus driver ran her over while making a turn while she was in the crosswalk on a four-way stop sign intersection. The driver also damaged the boys leg and got arrested for failure to yield and to exercise due care.

And again in East New York, a man who beat down an undercover cop on the street in Hell’s Kitchen last year stole a car that the owner left idling and took it on a joyride with four of his pals to Manhattan, where he got busted during a traffic stop and desperately tried to escape out of a passenger window. The car thief was released without bail after his arraignment.

And again in East New York, a man got shot in the neck as he was about to board a school bus.

And again in East New York, a pizza delivery man got ambushed by two men who tried to squelch on paying for their order then ganged up on him when he tried to go back in his car, causing him to fall on a street and getting run over by a car passing by during the assault.

In Cypress Hills, two men went on a seven day crime spree starting with a holdup at a bodega as they robbed from the register and stole money and a cellphone from the cashier; then they attacked a food delivery man by pistol whipping him on the sidewalk and robbed his cash, cellphone and e-motored cycle and then one of them held up a smoke shop at gunpoint and robbed cash and also 2 cellphone, an Ipad and a watch from the worker and got away on a bike.

In Bed-Stuy, a 16-year-old girl who ran away from home hooked up with a 17-year-old girl who met her in Connecticut and took her to an apartment in the Marcy Houses where she was preyed upon and brutally raped by a paraplegic 31-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman who held her down while the man stuck a broomstick into her vagina all while her teenage friend filmed it to be distributed on social media.

Also in Bed-Stuy, an off-duty crossing guard beat up his wife in their apartment.

Again in Bed-Stuy at the Myrtle Ave./Broadway Station, a stupid idiot jumped on top of a moving M train and fell between the cars and lost his foot.

In Williamsburg, an app-food delivery man making a pizza delivery at 4:30 a.m. was jumped by four men as they pushed him off his e-motored cycle and threw him on the pavement. Then one of the thugs stabbed the man in the legs as his accomplice held him. They left him on the pavement and stole his e-bike and also $70, a cellphone, his jacket and the pizza.

Also in Williamsburg, a woman shoplifted over $1,400 worth of makeup from a high end chain cosmetics store.

And again in Williamsburg, an off-duty drunk ass Narc went into a bar and was knocking glass over and then made advances towards a woman who showed no interest in him so he threw an orange at her. When a bartender intervened and admonished him, the Narc punched him in the face and then when a bouncer tried to eject him and had him pinned to the floor, he took out his government issue gun and fired it twice.

In Greenpoint, a woman who suffered from dementia and was reported missing was found dead by Newton Creek under the Kosciuszko Bridge.

Also in Greenpoint, a posse of rats was discovered by an intrepid reporter and citizen scurrying into a worksite where an elevator is being built at the Greenpoint Ave. Station.

 

In Gravesend, ICE agents dressed in plain clothes converged on a illegal immigrant who was running back to his house to evade them. An agent shot the fugitive with a taser as he was resisting arrest then the man’s girlfriend and her sons and their friends came out of the house to confront the ICE team. While arresting the immigrant, an ICE agent got into a physical struggle with the two sons and shot one of them in the face. The immigrant was previously pulled over by the NYPD while driving a car with a false license plate and subsequently released.

While the immigrant put himself and his relatives at risk, the ICE agents tactics to detain him were overzealous and ill-advised.

Also in Gravesend, a 72-year-old man was beaten to death inside his apartment over a drug deal gone bad.

A man who runs an activist group devoted to stopping gang violence with ties to City Hall threatened to kill a traffic cop by saying he was going to send the Bloods after him. The man is also tied to a recent widespread drug smuggling and dealing bust inside Rikers Island involving his brother and another activist currently serving time there. The man got paid $282,000 by the city for his services in 2019, which is over $25,000 of what Mayor de Blasio earned that year including the 5 months he was away making an idiot out of himself when he ran for president of America.

In Carroll Gardens, a hipster civil war broke out by a beer hall when a man (rightly) mocked a bunch of people waiting on line to buy overpriced beer and then threw a hard seltzer can at a woman when the queue of hipsters shot back an insult at him. Then the man threatened to shoot them and went back into his airbnb rental apartment then came back to the line and flashed a gun at them, but calmer heads prevailed and the man put his weapon away. Usually when someone pulls out their piece during a block party or a street bbq in a Black or Latino neighborhood an NYPD battalion shows up and shoves everyone with nightsticks and draws their tazers at the citizenry.

In Sheepshead Bay, a man sneaked up behind a 12-year-old boy, roughed him up and snatched his cellphone from his hand.

Also in Kensington, a 78-year-old woman waiting at a bus stop was approached by a sharp dressed man who feigned to be a church charity worker and conned her into going giving him $3,300. Then the hustler impersonated a police detective along with an accomplice and went to her apartment and stole another $1,200 by claiming he needed the cash to procure evidence.

In Bay Ridge, two teenage boys got jumped by three other teenage boys by their high school, and one of them got stabbed during the attack trying to defend himself and his friend.

Again in Flatlands, two men and a woman ripped off a box of lighters, 90 bucks of batteries and a big ass teddy bear from a dollar store. When a woman ran out to stop them, one of the thieves threw her down on the ground and kicked her in the stomach.

In Downtown Brooklyn, a man was shot point blank in the face and found dead in a hallway of a public housing building.

Also in Downtown Brooklyn at the Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center Station, a police investigation shut down the 2 train so cops could forcibly remove a man who they suspected of gun possession and the woman he was with. The dystopian police state action continued on the platform as the cops cuffed them without responding to the couple’s inquiries about what they did and why they are being arrested as over a dozen cops stand around guarding the detainment for some reason. Actually, it more resembles a mild version of an extraordinary rendition.

In South Slope at the Prospect Park Station, a man held up transit service by standing on top the awning over the platform.

In Park Slope, a drag race came to an abrupt halt when the two racers crashed their vehicles into two parked cars while trying to dodge an SUV making a left turn in front of them.

In Brighton Beach, two New York Rangers players got injured when a driver of an SUV made an illegal u-turn and crashed into the sportscar they were cruising in.

Also in Richmond Hill, three boys robbed a bunch of cigarette lighters from a store and ran inside a church during a funeral to hide (or claim sanctuary) but were caught by a Samaritan who chased them there.

Then they went to Glendale seven days later and cracked a lock off a truck and stole a bunch of tools worth $15,000.

They decided to hang around town for over a week then they struck again three times in a little over 30 minutes breaking into commercial vehicles and a unsecured pickup truck, pilfering nearly $7,000 of construction tools and equipment. Along with two similar heists in Brooklyn in January, the dastardly duo made off with over 50 large worth of equipment. These villains must be contracted with some developer that’s either in a rush or is very very cheap.

In South Ozone Park, a gang of 7 teenage males chased a man down the sidewalk then beat him down to the concrete and robbed his cellphone and headphone sticks.

Also in South Ozone Park, two men held up an app-hail livery driver at gunpoint after he picked them up and robbed $900 off him.

In Herald Square, a man impersonating an MTA service worker ripped off $40 and two metrocards from two women when he conned them trying to help them purchase rides from the vending machines. The man was found to be a serial thief preying on harried commuters in a hurry and naive tourists with 138 prior arrests for pulling the same scam which included four other thefts in the stations this year alone and was released on his own recognizance no thanks to New York State’s new bail reform laws.

The recidivist criminal waltzed out of the courthouse boasting of his undeserved freedom and proclaiming that the poorly written new laws were “lit” and about his ill-gotten earnings which he topped off with yelling a racial slur and how unstoppable he is. A few days later he got caught by the cops at a homeless shelter for his 140th career arrest after he ripped off a woman by selling her an empty metrocard for $32 at the 42nd St. Station.

Proving the conman’s boast how lit bail reform is, Legal Aid lawyers vainly accused cops or profiling and embellishing charges against him and was released again.

But now the 142nd time is the charm, as the man proclaimed that he will not rob commuters anymore…

According to the charges, two fourteen-old-boys committed the murder as one held her while the other boy stabbed her after she defended herself while preventing them from stealing her cellphone. She bit her killer on his finger. So my theory that it was an adult male that did it was wrong.

The killer’s stepfather may have sentenced him early by admonishing the boy at the precinct by yelling that he wasn’t poor or struggling because of the expensive sneakers he wore and how he should have went to school and stayed away from kids with bad influences.

So the killer wasn’t a grown ass man, but a couple of ignorant kids.

OBEY OMNY

083Embrace it’s warm, benevolent and invasive money usurping glow

It’s been a wild year so far for the worst fucking transit system in the universe. The MTA had to deal with two straight Monday of signal and switch breakdowns on two consecutive Mondays in January. The “sudden” resignation of Andy Byford. A fleet of  new cars breaking down that serviced two four borough train lines and another three borough one. The return of graffiti artists bombing entire trains as well as rise of felony crime on them and at the stations including a continuing rash of suicides. A massive (but ill-advised) social justice protest demanding abolishing the fare and the hiring and deployment of 500 cops to patrol the subway for farebeating, resulting in scattershot vandalism. A transit strike barely averted at the last minute. And to top it off, Andy Byford’s farewell exiting the MTA at 2 Broadway in Downtown Manhattan to a waiting and adoring crowd cheering him out, probably the first and definitely the last time you will see or hear about a sendoff of a government appointee like that.

Even though those subjects demand a thorough (de)constructive analysis peppered with vitriol and profanities, I prefer to focus on and review what I believe is the most costly, picayune and offensive thing the MTA is putting a big part of their efforts on now and that’s the induced implementation of the OMNY cashless tap fare system and the piss poor promotion of it.

Let’s start right off the bat with this fucking sight,

157

The MTA decided to splash these OMNY posters on all the ad space on the cars, which has been a common sight in the past decade as they have done on stations and even on the exterior of the cars too.

Now what immediately comes to mind is the color choice of this, making it entirely black. When Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap remarked about the band’s manager album art decision about it being “none more black“, with this the MTA’s marketing contractors 38 years later said “hold my beer”. It’s also easy to see that they chose to go with black to prevent counterpoint Sharpie marker graffiti (although they have overlooked scratchitti and even label stickers)

158

But what really stands out is the messaging. It’s very authoritative as much as it is misinformed, more propaganda than helpful PSA. Because while you can use your phone now to pay, the metrocard is still the preferred method of paying the fare and will still be available to commuters until it’s terminated in 2013. That’s 3 years, which is still a long time from now.

156

But the ads continue to seduce and also order the customer/commuter into using the new and preferred method for entering the turnstiles.

150

Probably sensing the utter lack of emotion and bleakness conveyed in those two ads, the MTA’s OMNY optics team made certain to get cheeky and cute with the rest of them. Even though they unwittingly encourage anti-social behavior and enable the continuing mental illness pandemic of cellphone addiction and the lousy culture of viral trending.

163161151

By chance you don’t get a seat, you get to view the overhead ads which seem inspired by Egyptian heiroglyphics featuring the evolution of the payment object and method.

155

043

Although instructive, there is still a palpable sense of subliminal and needy needling in influencing the commuter to change their payment routine.

154152

These are just the taxpayer funded ads trying to goad commuters into allegiance to OMNY pay. One of the too-big-to-fail banks, whom obviously have a big stake in the tapping fare game, are splashing related ads on stations all over the city. While more brighter and friendlier, it still is pushing the same messaging with equal desperation even if the promotion is contributing essential funding to the subway.

009012009

What’s problematic about all this expenditure to influence people into embracing what these ads proclaim about OMNY’s simple and easy system is a majority of commuters are not buying it and are still easily swiping to get on the train.

The MTA and Chase underestimated commuters since the majority of NYC citizens are creatures of habit. But trust might also play a factor too, especially since some of these scanners usurped money from commuters phones as they walked through the turnstiles already paying their fare the (majority used) current way. But maybe the MTA was not being that honest about their data before they went out and spent millions installing these OMNY scanners all over Manhattan and stations in affluent areas in Queens and Brooklyn (and maybe in some stations in the rapid luxury development areas in the Bronx). Another thing they didn’t factor is that a lot of people still don’t like to be told what to do, especially through subliminal and insidious tactics no matter how helpful they appear.

But it seems that with all those factors, the MTA still spent a significant amount of time getting this fare system and advertising campaign implemented. Although it’s early, the efforts of Cuomo’s MTA with Jamie Dimon’s Chase and other big banks pushing OMNY have clearly failed; naturally because they got this system out too early. Which is another fucking shame as the subway is still in dire straits, essential transit workers are about to be terminated  and the bus routes are being diced up in austerity measures to come up with funding the MTA’s 51.5 billion dollar capital plan.  And it’s still worrisome what’s going to happen after the completion of the Canarsie Tunnel and return of full service of the L train and whatever chaos and cataclysms are going to arise with future system upgrades in the next three years. It’s way too late to even ask why couldn’t they just finish all the upgrades and renovations in the subway capital plan in 2024 (pending) and then implement OMNY in all of the stations.

The irony of it all is that the MTA prioritize the convenience of how commuters can pay for mass transit over the convenience entitled to them expecting efficency and quality and safe commutes.

Up and down: Ice-T, Lou Reed, Beastie Boys, Neil Young, The Ghetto Boys and Faith No More

 

Because of pressing matters going on NYC with crime and local and national politics getting worse, the Impunity City best music released three decades ago since 2019 is late again. Also, the Grammy Awards came earlier this year and the big winner was this teenage girl named Billie who swept all Album, Song and Record of the year along with best new artist. I haven’t heard her music, or maybe I have since supermarkets, chain stores and recent TV shows and commercials feature today’s blandly dull music. My assumption about the young lady’s tunes might have validity because the last “musical” “artist” that swept the Grammies like this was the horrendous commercial MOR soft rock hack Christopher Cross in 1981 and his music has not even endured on the multiple lite music stations in New York. I’m sure Bill will come up with as good a follow up as Chris Cross.

Anyway, this is the music that in my not so humble opinion ruled and still kicks the living shit out of the shitty sense depriving music of today. And to start this list, it’s strictly rap. Because as one of the talents on here uttered, hip hop ruled in 89:

Beastie Boys, Paul’s Boutique

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.wallpaperflare.com%2Fstatic%2F506%2F837%2F170%2Fmusic-album-covers-beastie-boys-paul-wallpaper.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

King Ad Rock, MCA, and Mike D were going through some shit after their raucous classic Licensed to Ill got released, going on a massive tour with their Queens allies Run DMC and LL Cool J, they dumped their manager Russell Simmons, parted with producer Rick Rubin, left Columbia distributed Def Jam records and took their gear to sunny California and signed with Capitol Records, hooked up with Tone Loc’s producers the Dust Brothers and got to work on their highly anticipated follow up.

And what manifested was one of the greatest LP’s ever created. Or with the wicked amount of samples, kinetic beats and abstract and pop culture heavy lyrics and rhymes maybe it’s fit to call it curated.  After the smooth creepy intro for all the girls the drum roll crashes into “Shake Your Rump”, introducing without question the Beastie New Edition abandoning the sound and style of their first album that was limited to a few break beats and metal lick samples but still keeping up the raunchy and sophomoric subject matter but with a nastier twist with new takes and metaphors for them. Then the song ends abruptly and slides into the low down blues homage to a charismatic bum named “Johnny Ryall” and is followed by the homage to scurrilous vigilante vandalism (and the Beatles sans John)”Eggman” which wildly samples Superfly and Psycho. Then it’s the slow, sleazy outlaw funk of “High Plains Drifter” that rides steady on an Eagles Loop about gambling on horses. The “Sounds Of Science” continues the Beasties Beatles muse by rhymin while stealing loops from Sgt. Peppers and Abbey Road. The first side closes with the Funkadelic sounding “3 minute rule” continues the braggadocio with live playing along with the stellar scratching by DJ Hurricane and the first single, the old school hip hop and Jerry Lewis inspired gigolo anthem “Hey Ladies”

Then you flip the cassette, press play and are greeted with a hillbilly romp which gets abruptly cut down for the live playing molten Sabbath style ode to ultraviolence “Looking Down the Barrel of A Gun”. The felonious “Car Thief” and the their take on the fucked up state of society of that time “What Goes Around” continues the Beasties current obsession with glorious 70’s funk and R&B.

Then the album gets real gone with the last two tracks beginning with “Shadarach” as the Beasties get biblical by comparing themselves with the title character plus fellow prophets Meshach and Abegnego over a Sly Stone background vocal riff as well as one of his most reliable drumbreaks. Then the pinnacle and most ambitious track and hip hop song of all time comes on “B-Boy Bouillebaise”. Continuing drawing inspiration from the Fab Four (which was convenient being their label mates now) the fab four minus one styles the song after the song suite that codas side 2 of Abbey Road and it’s fucking mint, starting with 59 Chrystie St, aggressively watching ladies on the street go by followed by the human beat box saliva spreading “mike on the mic”, then proceeds to two standout songs “Stop That Train” and the MCA solo track “Year And A day”, probably the best MC and DJ performance on the album as Yauch goes off on a stream of consciousness freestyle as Hurricane scratches the hell out of the Isley Brothers “That Lady” on the 1 and 2’s. That fucking track is one of those songs that you wish would go on for another 7 minutes (surprised it was never made into a 12″) but it gets cut down and seamlessly seques into “Hello Brooklyn” about more Beastie wilding on a rubbery electro beat. Then it goes into the Nola funk of “Dropping names” and “Lay it on me” then going into the Mike D’s solo cut “Mike on the mic” and after a cameo by WOR weatherman (and inspiration for Ad-Rocks hello shoutout) it concludes with the call and response AWOL.

Although not the greatest hip hop album ever (it’s still belongs to Public Enemy), this landmark album belongs to pantheon of other rock and roll landmark recordings. With themes and styles of the Beatles axis of classics Sgt Peppers, White Album and Abbey Road. The genius song craft and pristine production of the Beach Boys Pet Sounds. The sequencing and collaging of effects of the songs like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of the Moon and the Paul’s Boutique’s surreal still life photography and mystique layout similar to Led Zeppelin’s Zoso. And with the initial terrible sales of the album after it’s release, it can also be compared to Captain Beefheart’s Trout Mask Replica, which was another chaotic masterpiece full of wonderfully weird songs that was initially blown off but grew popular and sold more records as the years went by.

Most of all, Paul’s Boutique was the album that not only brought progress to hip hop but was responsible for bringing all genres of music and diverse cultures together. This album was lollapalooza before there was a concert festival for it.

The really great thing about this album is that even though the Beasties went to the west coast to record this infinite classic, it’s still 100 New York. It shows that besides consuming lot of beer, mushrooms and weed, you can still make inspired music by just  being homesick.

Ice T, The Iceberg: Freedom Of Speech…Just Watch What You Say

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/c/c7/TheiceburgIcet.jpg

Introduced with a PSA by the Dead Kennedy’s lead singer Jello Biafra with a loop of Black Sabbath’s first song blaring in the background titled “Shut up Be Happy” a take on one of the biggest hits of all time and the worst song that came out that year, Los Angeles citizen and vulgarian gangster MC Ice T unleashed this motherfucking hip hop manifesto on the nation. Fueled by rising crime, gang related and territorial violence, rampant drug abuse, and police brutality as well as brazenly lame attempts at oppressing musical expression by the likes of the PMRC and the FBI, Ice-T wrote his most fearsome and offensive songs yet. The result was this concept like album that seamlessly weaved all these issues.

“The Iceberg” rolls like a blaxplotation flick theme as Ice talks shit like Dolemite, then takes a 180 degree turn with the kinetic single “Lethal Weapon” which about killing your rivals by being informed than with tech 9. Then it’s followed by the funky classic karma stories of “You Played Yourself” and the funky but grim gangbanger revenge tale “Peel Their Caps Back”. Ice-T then puts out his first straight forward metal song with his guitar compadre Ernie C on the humorous “That Girl Tried to Kill me”.

After the rollicking “Hit the deck” Ice-T drops science about virtue signalers on “This Ones For Me”. After the fugitive on the run “The Hunted Child” and nine minute posse cut “What You Wanna Do” (featuring Everlast) the penultimate second title track “Freedom Of Speech”, although dated because of the targets of the PMRC and other oppressors of free expression at the time, Ice’s furious lyricism and the relentless music still maintains the songs relevance and universalism, especially when it closes with Jello Biafra returning to give an ominous warning of the supposed harmlessness of labeling and rating music.

The hilarious thing about all this that after the PMRC got what they wanted the music industry slapped all those Parental Advisory stickers on LP’s, tapes and CD’s, the targeted genres of hip hop and heavy metal got more explicit and vulgar. And on this masterpiece, Ice was obviously glad to oblige those assholes.

De La Soul, 3 Feet High And Rising

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.2v8YsoxIUGCDRkHom9b98gHaHa%26pid%3DApi&f=1

As the Golden Age of Rap was in it’s nascent stage, the majority of hip hop artists were rapping about politics, ultraviolence and about how bad each and every one of them were. Then three kids from of all places Amityville, Long Island called De La Soul got signed to Tommy Boy and put out this sensational aberration. With a ridiculous looking album cover that looks straight out of nursery school, the music and rhyme styles contained were the most innovative of that year. Produced by Stetsasonic’s DJ Prince Paul, MCs Trugoy the Dove and Posdnous and DJ Mase assembled 24 tracks of quirky funky tracks and silly ass comedy skits that was devoid of filler.

Even though you have to wait 2 minutes to get to the first song it doesn’t disappoint. Taking a damaged Sesame Street record and looping the drum beat and mixing it high, De La goes off the wall with schoolhouse rock revamp “The Magic Number”, the follow up “Change in Speak”. “Jenifa taught me” is a sex song that gets nasty as 2 live crew but with very clever metaphors and colliquialisms, almost like Dr. Seuss. Then De La Soul hit hits the streets and raps ’bout the blight, desperation and depression in “Ghetto Thang” and then goes into the lovey dovey track “Eye Know” featuring Steely Dan and Otis Redding hooks then goes into a couple of goofy tracks before heading into the first single ripping on biting rappers as gophers on “Potholes In My Lawn” (and yes that is a hook from the Little Rascals theme).

Side 2 kicks off with the anti-drug dealing and using PSA track “Say No Go” followed by the shameless self promoting “Plug Tunin”. After another nasty song of De La and some guests in the studio faking orgasms, it’s followed by the sweet posse cut “Buddy” with the Native Tongues crew of the Jungle Brothers and the debut of Q-Tip on the second vagina euphimism of the album (the other being Jenny from earlier, both takes on the hip hop penis names of Jimmy and Jimbrowski). After a Sly Stone sampled Native Tongue roll call the Funkadelic Knee Deep drum break kicks into the immortal individuality anthem “Me, Myself and I”. Then the album closes out with the hardcore “L.I.F.E.” and the dippy hippy “D.A.I.S.Y. Age”.

Like Public Enemy’s Nation of Millions, this hip hop landmark also changed hip hop sonically too with its wild and creative (curated) usage of samples and beats. It didn’t even take long because the Beasties Pauls Boutique would use this same style on their release just six months later.

Ghetto Boys, Grip It On That Other Level

What’s great about America, at least what we’re told, is that anyone can become successful through hard work and determination but mostly you just have to be at the right place at the right time with the right message or medium. That’s where the Ghetto Boys from Houston and their trailblazing second album comes in.

Willie D, Bushwick Bill, DJ Ready Red and the incomparable MC Scarface quietly dropped the rawest and hardest rap album of the year. Even though they were immediately lumped in the gangsta rap genre, the Ghetto Boys lyrics delved a lot deeper into the psychosis of their subjects and were graphic in their depictions. The intro take no prisoners cut and first single “Do it like a G.O.” rides on the “pusherman” riff as they rail not against sucker m.c’s but sucker radio programmers. Then comes “Gangsta of Love” as the Boys brag about sexual conquests and prowess while Ready Red cuts and deconstructs Steve Miller’s “The Joker” for the chorus and the hooks.

After calling out phonies on “Talkin loud, saying nothing” they are followed by the ass kicking proclamations of Willie D’s “Read These Nikes” and Bushwick Bill’s inspiring self-defense anthem “Size Ain’t Shit” which features the timeless idiom “Play pussy get fucked” and Ready Red freaking the shit out the Odd Couple Theme.

Following the nihilism of “Seek And Destroy”, addressing persecution and compromising on “No Sell Out”, another cynical take on the ladies “Let a ho be a ho”, Scarface lets loose with his gangsta storytelling on his namesake song while riding on the Eric B Paid in Full beat and the follow up “Life In The Fast Lane”. As with most classic albums they leave the best songs for last, as Scarface and Willie D ruthlessly scaremonger their listeners with the serial killing themes of “Trigga Happy Nigga” and the maniacal sociopathy of “Mind Of A Lunatic”.

Jungle Brothers, Done By The Forces Of Nature

https://img.discogs.com/4b6zef8pBRpxjIaGd_odpwwk5mM=/fit-in/600x600/filters:strip_icc():format(jpeg):mode_rgb():quality(90)/discogs-images/R-68600-1332645952.jpeg.jpg

The Jungle Brothers followed up their stellar debut “Straight out the Jungle” with this 60 minute masterpiece about the urban jungle and party utopia of NYC. Of all the hip hop albums, this one stood out as the music on this was very club-oriented and the majority of the lyrics were more dedicated to women and getting down than M.C. braggadocio.

The first single “Beyond This World” rides on a relentless bass groove guaranteed to make anyone move as the lyrics grimly focus on the realities of their surroundings in the urban jungle. “Feeling Alright” has the JB’s walking on the poor city streets on a pleasant day bereft of the usual blights as the followup “Sunshine” continues that mood.

Then it’s the should have been a huger hit “What U Waitin’ 4” which was clearly made for mass consumption and soul train lines as well as the Zapp-fueled follow up “U Make Me Sweat”. The album takes a break from the housin’ as the JB’s encourage self-education with “Acknowledge Your Own History”. And the side closes out with a killer virtuoso cut “Good News Comin'” by DJ Sammy B.

Side 2  opens with the jazzy and spacey title track and the tribal bangers “Beads On A String”, “Tribe Vibes” and “J Beez Coming through”. Then the J Beez comes up with their universal tribute to the ladies with “Black Woman” and ends with the hope for the future anthem “Dayz To Come, a Native Tongues posse cut follow up to De La Soul’s Buddy “Doin Our Own Dang” and finishes it off with a street corner blues ditty “Kool According to A Jungle Brother”.

This album did not really do that well even though it came out at the right place at the right time and is one of the greatest hip hop albums of Rap’s golden age even with a major label distribution and budget by the W.Beez (Warner Brothers Records). If this came out 15 years later it would give Outkast competition. The J.Beez were truly ahead of their time.

Boogie Down Productions, Ghetto Music: The Blueprint Of Hip Hop

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e6/Blueprintkrs.jpg

While a lot of rap artists were loading tracks with samples with excellent results, Boogie Down Productions went back to basics with this phenomenal album (remember when basic wasn’t a lame slur?) with a few choice breaks and lifted hooks and a live band as Blastmaster KRS-ONE goes beyond the Bronx and tackles universal themes based on acquired knowledge he obtained by studying and dwelling in local libraries when he was a homeless teenager.

Following the War-inspired boast track “The Style You Haven’t Done Yet”, on “Why Is That?” KRS delegitimatizes the perpetual myth of Jesus Christ as a white man as depicted in churches and government institutions. On the co-title track “The Blueprint” he schools other rappers on hip hop’s musical integrity with the same fervor he dissed the Juice Crew on Criminal Minded.

Then BDP includes his excellent track “Jack Of Spades” from “I’m Gonna Get You Sucka” and it doesn’t seem out of place at all like most previously released inclusions. “Who Protects Us From You” is a great treatise on aggressive arbitrary policing which the album cover brilliantly conveys.

“You Must Learn” continues KRS-one’s self-proclaimed MC role as “The Teacher” by giving a Black History lesson condensed in three and half minutes just like Stevie Wonder did on his classic “Black Man” (which was five minutes longer). “Jah Rulez” “Hip Hop Rules” “Bo Bo Bo” and “Gimme Dat” continue BDP’s devotion to reggae music which is more pronounced than any other hip hop group in that era. And the album closes with the brilliant anthem “World Peace” which doesn’t display naievte at all, as KRS proclaims that “you got to just take it”.

Queen Latifah, All Hail The Queen

https://townsquare.media/site/812/files/2018/11/Queen-Latifah-All-Hail-The-Queen.jpg?w=1080&q=75

Even though pioneering female MC’s like MC Lyte and Roxanne Shante were around making great singles, they fell just a bit short making a great and cohesive album. Then a 19-year-old woman from New Jersey dropped this bomb on the masses. With beats and sounds constructed by the brilliant producer and Flavor Unit co-leader 45 King and her fellow Tommy Boy labelmates, Queen Latifah’s lyricism and wild rhyming styling made All Hail The Queen established it as a landmark for women rappers.

On the opener “Dance for Me” she excellently exudes her command and her MC entitlement status immediately and keeps up the club groove on the followup single “Come Into My House”. “Mama gave birth to the Soul Children” is great collaboration with label mates and Native Tongue allies De La Soul. “Latifah’s Law” and “Wrath of My Madness” shows the Queen can rock a gangsta flow like her XY competitors.

Then comes “Ladies First, one of the best songs of 1989 and probably the greatest female empowerment anthem ever as Latifah and Monie Love brag and boast while throwing fire on male dominance perceptions, the Queen continues relentlessly and savagely on that concept on the accusatory “The Evil That Men Do” after the back to back rawness of “Queen and King Creation” and the wicked “Queen of Royal Badness” then the album comes to a close with “Princess of the Posse” and the smooth “Inside Out” as Latifah showcases her excellent singing skills.

Queen Latifah would make a few more albums later on but they didn’t come close to it, probably because she was pursuing an acting career which continues to this day. Which is too bad, since because of her success in T.V. and film, her groundbreaking album has been virtually forgotten even though it as significant as Aretha Franklin’s “I’ve never loved a man the way that I loved you” breakthrough album.

3rd Bass The Cactus Album

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2F68.media.tumblr.com%2Ftumblr_lkvauwTXxr1qemqezo1_400.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

When this album came out on Def Jam it was almost a curiosity. They already were when their first single and video debuted on Video Music Box (greatest music video show ever). It was easy to cynically define this. The Beastie Boys left Def Jam, so the label had to find a new white rap group. But with the Golden Age of Rap standard at the time, they have to lyrically and musically gifted. MC Serch from Far Rockaway and Prime Minster Pete Nice from Brooklyn had absolutely no problem filling that bill.

3rd Bass first album like De La Souls 3 feet high (also produced by Prince Paul) seems to be a concept album, presuming the Cactus is like the Holy Grail or Burning Bush of hip hop, silly as it sounds. What’s not silly is how perfect and combative this album is. “Sons Of 3rd Bass” is a direct unprovoked dis of the Beastie Boys, as much you want to disagree with it it’s still a funny song. Then comes the “Gasface”, which is an unprovoked yet justified dis song on the punks behind power structures and establishment narratives.

Following five seamless tracks of super rhyme skills and dope beats provided by DJ Richie Rich, Serch and Pete tell their life stories  about how their love for rap on “Product of the Environment” followed by their jazzy off-kilter explanation of the meaning behind “The Cactus” (which disses nascent superstar rapper MC Hammer for the second time on the LP). After a ludicrous homage to Tom Waits comes a sincere love ditty to the two boroughs they hail from  “Brooklyn-Queens” even though it’s mostly about the predominant subject of gold-digging women and closes with the first single “Steppin’ To The A.M.. Another great release from the legendary Def Jam label.

(There were so many outstanding hip hop albums that came out that year it was hard to leave them out, so consolation prizes go to Kool G Rap and DJ Polo, Schoolly D,The D.O.C., Nice And Smooth, Big Daddy Kane and Roxanne Shante)

Three legendary and reliable rock and roll singer songwriters made their greatest albums after about almost a decade of creative futility.

Neil Young, Freedom

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2020/02/b09ac-iu.jpg

After releasing Rust Never Sleeps in 1979, Neil Young was floundering aimlessly in the 80’s after signing to David Geffen’s label (with the exception of the underrated Trans LP) jumping from genre to genre and making forgettable music. Then he went back to his old trusty label, did one more genre jump and then reverted back to form with the second best album he ever recorded. He just needed the creative freedom to do it, which may have been partly the inspiration for the title here.

But this album is not about Neil’s liberation from a shitty record deal, it’s about America and how the nation was still struggling after a decade of Reaganomics and the first years of Bush as depicted in the opener “Rockin’ in the Free World” which was reminiscent of “Hey Hey My My” off Rust but about homeless crises and economic disparities and with an optimistic/sarcastic jingoist chorus. “Crime in the City” continues the themes of the “Rockin..:” and focuses again on urban decay from the perspective of the cop and the criminal. “Don’t Cry”  is a break up song and also the first song on the album that debuts Neil’s embrace of white noise style utilized by Sonic Youth and Dinosaur Jr, it sort of depicts that the separation wasn’t that amicable. “Eldorado” utilizes the same racket, disrupting the mood of the flamenco ballad. “Hangin’ on a Limb”, “The Ways of Love” and “Someday” are more additions to Young’s pantheon of classic ballads.

Then the album gets darker starting with the remake of the Drifters “On Broadway” as Neil extends the song and turns it up to 11 when he gets to the line “plays this here guitar” and turns the lilting song about strolling on the street into a heavy metal apocalypse of despair as Young codas the song with a man begging for crack. “Wrecking Ball” is another exemplary ballad like the previous one as the follow up “No More” is also another great song tackling insatiable drug addiction leading up to the metallic reprise of “Rockin’ In The Free World” with an extra verse maligning inequitable budgetary spending towards the military industrial complex over the needy and the environment and capped it off with his most scorching solo since Hey Hey (Into the Black) from a decade earlier on Rust Never Sleeps.

No one in rock music got more political and passionate than Neil Young did on this classic.

But one other rock and roll living legend did:

Lou Reed, New York

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse4.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.y7FHyv8M19lyv6YLvGSWyQAAAA%26pid%3DApi&f=1

In the 80’s, Lou Reed was still making significant music (even a classic like The Blue Mask) even though he wasn’t getting much attention until he wrote some commercial songs that were sorta hits, he also sold out to the man by appearing in a motorcycle commercial. Then when the year 89 was just a baby, Lou Reed came out with this vicious, stripped down one hour hate/love letter to his hometown and the greatest but not at all safest city in the world, New York, Reed’s greatest album of his solo career. New York was like a collection of short stories and metro news articles set to raw rock and roll.

Starting with “Romeo Had Juliette”, Lou reduces Shakespeare’s fable to a nasty lay between the unrequited lovers and a naked city gang war playing outside then the bleakness continues nicely to the sorrowful and gorgeous ballad on AIDS victims missing from the “Halloween Parade. The beautiful “Dirty Blvd”(a surprise hit single) documents the tale of two cities and graphic descriptions of the city’s denizens and sights, showing that the wild side he once sang about as got worse and is more hard to escape from. “Endless Cycle” stresses the generational repetition of domestic and drug abuse, and “There Is No Time” lists everything citizens and officials waste their time on while nothing progresses. On “The Last Great American Whale”, the subject mammal is addressed mostly as a symbol for humanity’s ails and ignorance.

Side 2 delves into city survival themes on “Busload of Faith” is a rollicking anthem of self-perseverance and maintaining hope in the worst conditions and elements. “Sick of You” is a hysterical breakup song that blames every horrible current event on his significant other. The inspiring and relentless “Hold On” documents the dystopian society that evolved from the bias crimes, street riots and daily violence of the past 3 years. “Good Evening Mr Waldheim” calls out Jesse Jackson’s and Pope John Paul II’s hypocrisies than the at the time Austrian President and exposed former Nazi. “Xmas In February” gives a shout out to Vets destroyed by the Vietnam War, which around that year made up a lot of NYC’s homeless population. “Strawman” is a rousing anthem trashing the one percent and their worthless contributions to culture and society, false prophets and grand expensive events leading to inevitable disaster. And the closing “Dime Store Mystery” he reunites with his Velvet Underground bandmates John Cale and Moe Tucker on the albums only avant garde track about a street killing.

New York was a collection of short stories, metro news articles and police blotter set to two guitars, bass and drums. There hasn’t been anything in 30 years that has come close to it and going by the times in 2020, this album is purely due for a sequel. Too bad it will never happen because Lou’s been dead for 6 years and the majority of New Yorkers are transients and tourists.

Tom Petty, Full Moon Fever

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thecarleton.ca%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2016%2F01%2FFullMoonFeverCover.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

Tom Petty decided to stable the Heartbreakers (except for his trusty lead guitar player Mike Campbell) and hooks up with his fellow Wiburys for his official solo debut Full Moon Fever and it became his second biggest hit album and best album of his two decade career.

The album timely summer release contained excellent songwriting and exuded cool vibes on the laid back transcendance of “Free Fallin'”, the stoic defiance of “I Won’t Back Down” and the back to back polar relationship songs of devotion and distance in “Love is a long road” and the haunting “Face in the Crowd”.

Then comes the unforgettable undeniable starter riff of “Running Down a Dream”, a four and half minute blazer track about driving and ambition and the greatest top down cruising song since Golden Earring’s “Radar Love” . Following the great remake side 2 opener of a Byrds classic, Petty writes a rocking ode to a wild impulsive babe on “Yer So Bad” and segues into the needy yet bittersweet “Depending On You”. The next two songs also take on similar relationship themes on “The Apartment Song” and “Alright for now”.Then the concise perfect album closes with a Wilburys’ styled rocker “A Mind With A Heart of it’s Own and closes with the status seeking and materialism trashing of “Zombie Zoo”.

Like Paul’s Boutique, this album also embraces the sun and expansive sights of Cali while staying grounded to the artist’s stylistic and hometown roots and is bolstered by lush production this time with co-producer ELO mastermind Jeff Lynne. Tom Petty would continue to make classic songs but arguably couldn’t come close to this again.

Aerosmith, Pump

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.ok1ZrpY1_Yz3Vi4aNvI1DwHaHa%26pid%3DApi&f=1

Aerosmith’s comeback following their collaboration with Run DMC and the multiplatinum success of their 1987 album Permanent Vacation is really one of rock and roll history’s greatest stories and it also established the connection of rock and rap as allies in musical rebellion. But like the band once sang on an overlooked great album leading to their revival, let the music do the talkin’; and did they ever on the their monster album Pump, their hardest and best album since their magnum opus 76 LP Rocks.

Starting with “Young Lust”, Boston’s furious five bust out the gate and brings down the garage with a relentlessness that the Replacements abandoned on their own 89 release that came out months earlier which segues into the honky metal tonkin’ song about high maintenance women on “F.I.N.E” . The band then channels both Guns’N Roses and the Beatles on their classic song about public fornication and cunnilingus on “Love in an elevator”.

The band gets into social subject matter for the first time on the autobiographical drug foibles on “Monkey On My Back” and child abuse and paternacide on “Janie’s Got A Gun”. The rocking doesn’t stop on the three following tracks starting with the AOR hit “The Other Side” but the band gets hard and funky again on “Voodoo Medicine Man” and ends with the goosebump begging and pleading ballad “What it Takes” featuring Steven Tyler’s best singing on the album. Still holds up FINE.

Before it was a brand, alternative rock music was making headway and although it was an off year for heavy metal a few innovative new bands broke out in a huge way.

The Cure, Disintegration

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2FQjPfaXt.jpg&f=1&nofb=1

The Cure’s gradual evolution from post-punk to goth to new wave to radio friendly commercial success put forth a lot of great music but spotty albums in the 80’s and then at the closing of the decade Robert Smith hunkered down, got sad and composed Disintegration. And the result is the most beautiful and atmospheric downer of an album ever made. The ironic thing is that listening to this brings forth joy at The Cure’s expense, being their phenomenal performance on this classic.

As wind chimes ring for almost 30 seconds a crescendo of synthesizers form an expansive chilling wall of sound on the modestly titled “Plainsong”. Then its the beautiful bass-lead riffing reminiscing ballad “Pictures of You”. The ascending “Closedown” belies the dread of the one stanza of the song. “Lovesong” is the most detached song ever with that title and gives the Cure’s label Elektra the massive money making hit they wanted, and got another hit with the equally catchy “Lullaby”.

“Fascination Street” is wall of massive sound and the heaviest and groove laden song they ever wrote. Following that songs brief respite in the outside world the album depression themes go full on for the next 20 minutes with “Prayers For Rain” and the ambience of “The Same Deep Waters As You”, both songs which Smith uses his thoughts of aging as drowning metaphors (explains the cover with him glaring under the surface of a lily pond). “Disintegration” is the Cure’s definitive epochal song as the music coincides with the feeling of collapse from excessive drug use. The album closes with “Homesick” and melodica driven “Untitled”. Moping never sounded so good and inspired.

Pixies, Doolittle

https://e.snmc.io/i/600/w/f10ee707245e387404a04cfecc1d943c/6303339

What do you do when you put out a barrier breaking original rock and roll album that introduces an innovative composing style (soft verse/loud chorus) along with inventing a new genre like on “Surfer Rosa”? If you are the Pixies, you make the obligatory landmark album as your follow up. Though Surfer was a landmark too, Doolittle has more modern rock for your dollar.

As the two note bassline from Ms. Kim Deal comes on, Joey Santiago melodically abrasive guitar licks come in on the opening track “Debaser” and Black Francis goes off like a banshee while yelling ho-ho-ho on a song about a foreign horror flick. “Tame” and “Wave of Mutilation” continue with the garish surrealistic violent themes with heavy metal pop hooks. “I Bleed” is a little singalong style ditty as Deal follows Black’s lead on a song seems to be about genocide. Then comes the college station hit (on an album with a dozen of them) “Here Comes Your Man” which rides on a Beach Boys riff as Black croons about an eerie boxcar ride. After the biblical discordant noise rocker “Dead” comes the Pixies stunning crossover AOR radio hit about the man-made end of civilization and the planet Earth “Monkey Gone To Heaven”.

Surrealism and the off-kilter post-punk music collectively fuel the short spurt tracks “Mr Grieves” and “Crackity Jones” which gets disrupted by a silly love song sung by drummer Dave Lowering and blends into the next three tracks “No 13 Baby”, “There Goes My Gun” and Baby”. The album codas with two disparate moods on the evocative spaghetti western soundtrack “Sliver and the violent torture imagery on “Gouge Away”.

Unfortunately this album would be the last time the Pixies would coalesce all the band members talents as Black Francis got tyrannical on Kim put a cap on her sexy voice on the Pixies last two albums. Creative decisions sure can kill a band.

Faith No More, The Real Thing

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.yYLqdAVDmOP2jtqLeZgVrwHaHa%26pid%3DApi&f=1

One of the greatest phenomenon’s in music is the proverbial artist that came out of nowhere. And with the legendary multi-genre spanning heavy metal band Faith No More they literally did just that (except to the people who already knew of them from their last album in 1987 and their crossover hit We Care A Lot). Even the first song and single on the monstrous “The Real Thing” might have been self-referential- the punk and organ driven “From out Of Nowhere” even if it was a standard metal song about a woman. Then it’s the classic second track and international super smash “Epic” as Faith No More merges rap and metal and new singer Mike Patton distinguishes himself as a dynamic frontman on a song about tripping balls.

“Falling to Pieces” continues in the funk vein with Billy Gould’s rubber bass line and Mike Bordin’s big beat drumming as Patton continues his schizo rapping and singing style and gets maniacal on guitarist Jim Martin’s metallic “Surprise! You’re Dead”. The Songs “Zombie Eaters” and “The Real Thing” are where the band adds progressive rock to their heavy metal hip hop boulliabaisse.

And the album closes with the noir tale “The Morning After”, the classical driven instrumental shredder “Woodpecker From Mars” and a stupendous remake of “War Pigs” (which was probably ordered by the major label as insurance for a single) and “Edge of the world” where Mike Patton brings out his inner lounge lizard.

Sepultura, Beneath The Remains

Morbid Angel, Alters Of Madness

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.e4iJ3cItz_djwKktrMazegD6D6%26pid%3DApi&f=1https://img.cdandlp.com/2017/06/imgL/113721244.jpg

When Metallica went double platinum with ..and Justice For All bringing faster and harder edged music to the mainstream, major labels went on a frenzy signing dozens of other thrash metal bands that released quality but insignificant albums. Fortunately the existence of indie labels still existed and two bands would release landmark and still influential albums of their own.

New label Roadrunner records picked up Sepultura from Brazil, who already had two great albums before them, and out came “Beneath The Remains” which continued and expanded Metallica’s metal composition standards on their four masterpieces. With an ominous opening Max and Igor Cavalera and lead guitarist Andres Kisser slash and burn on the title track about a soldier’s accounting and responsibilty behind a shelling of a village. “Inner Self” and “Stronger Than Hate” deals with an individual’s convictions and the emotions that drive them. “Mass Hypnosis” covers the cults that blindly worship religious institutions.

“Sarastic Exsitence” graphically describes the effects of being institutionalized. “Slaves of Pain” and “Lobotomy” explore themes of accepting oppression and servitude to power, and the unstoppable force of the music concludes with the and the avarice and evolutionary themes of “Hungry” and “Primitive Future”

Underground label and British export Earache Records quietly hit America’s shores with bands like the legendary Napalm Death, Carcass and various other bands that took metal to new extremes, playing louder and faster with albums that were lyrically more gruesome, graphic and Satanic. But their American franchise band was a black metal group from Tampa Bay, Florida called Morbid Angel and their perfect debut album “Altars of Madness”

Starting with “Immortal Rights” and “Suffocation”, the band breaks open the gates of hell with the complex and stellar virtuosity musicianship notably by lead guitarist Trey Azagthoth and drummer Pete Sandoval as bassist and vocalist David Vincent possessed vocals give the devil his due and praise. “Visions from the Darkside” is another demonic allegory comparing hell and war. “Maze Of Torment” describes a few rings of Dante’s Inferno.

The next four songs continues giving the devil his due with blistering leads and blast beats while like “Damnation” and “Blasphemy” direct their bile on their rival christian institutions and the closer “Evil Spells” references the sad sack Faust. I bet Slayer regretted taking the year off when this was out.

Nirvana, Bleach

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.4-GxaiVTxjXWLN47pbOE4QHaHP%26pid%3DApi&f=1

Last year was the Sliver silver anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s suicide at his house in Aberdeen, Washington but it was also the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s debut on Sub Pop records “Bleach”. Budgeted for a measly $6,000, Kurt, Kris Novaselic and two drummers pre-Grohl pounded 12 classic songs songs laying the genesis of the hardcore and metal (with pop sensibilities) “grunge” sound that would take over and save the music industry in a few years.

Kurt Cobain’s and the band’s approach was at first derivative of the his favorite bands at time, especially the Pixies, Sabbath, R.E.M., various indie punk bands and his beloved Melvins (their drummer Dale Crover plays on a few tracks here). The first two tracks “Blew”, “Floyd the Barber” and “Paper Cuts” clearly show the Melvins influence on Kurt. Although the next track “About a Girl”, his song crafting potential comes through on this Beatles styled track and the catchy bubblegum guitar riffing of “Love Buzz” (a remake of a cheesy 70’s pop song).

The albums best tracks delve into anti-social hardcore punk and   existential dread of “School”, “Negative Creep” and “Scoff”. “Swap Meet” is a very funny story song about the title subject as Nirvana continues to perfect the pop/hardcore sound laid down by contemporary and temporary superstar band the Pixies. “Mr. Moustache” and “Sifting” are fast and slow savage takedowns of Kurt’s targeting society’s worst elements, bullies and authority figures.

Ministry, The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b4/Ministry_-_The_Mind_Is_a_Terrible_Thing_to_Taste.png

Ministry already established themselves as metal saviors on their last album “Land of Rape And Honey” the year before but apparently that wasn’t enough as they brought more guitars and stacks on this followup.

The metal machine music on “The Mind is A Terrible Thing to Taste” goes from zero to hyperdrive immediately starting with the staccato machine gun riffing classic “Thieves” as Alain Jourgensen, his silent partner Paul Barker and Wax Trax label ally Chris Connelly renovate their industrial music sound they helped pioneer with powersaw flourishes over a hip hop beat disrupted by trash metal spurts following the verses condemning thieves, liars, hypocrites and bastards. “Burning Inside” continues the onslaught on a relentless hardcore track about drug withdrawal overwhelming the body.

After the Art of Noise/Motorhead romp “Never Believe and the bass and synth ambient “Cannibal Song”, “Breathe” (you fuckers!) opens up side 2 with 5 minutes of hard driving pounding repetition. “So What” is the epic track that rolls on dub, ambient music and audio chatter reminiscent of the best of PiL and Pink Floyd that gets disrupted by Jourgensen’s abrasive shouting and power chords. Then comes a surprising appearance of a guest MC that is tasked to rap over a collapsing wall of sound and fury on the albums loudest song “Test”. The album closes with the death march instrumental “Faith Collapsing” and the ambient “Dream Song”.

With this album, Ministry jumped into the forefront of the rock and roll revolution as aggressive music would take over and dominate the mainstream in a short amount of time.

Goo Goo Dolls, Jed

https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse1.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.WNSvzKPyrvmex4ChTQ-P2QHaHa%26pid%3DApi&f=1

After Paul Westerberg and the Replacements disappointed most of the world with their bland followup to their garage rock masterpiece “Pleased to meet me” in 89, other bands they influenced had to fill the void left by them (which includes the aforementioned Aerosmith) But hardly anyone knew that three punks from Buffalo, New York would take that sound and aggression and put out a power pop punk classic.

Robbie, Johnny and George Goo took their Mats as well as their Cheap Trick, Metallica and Ramones influences and put the pedal to the metal on this overlooked gem of an album. The albums first four tracks are perfection “Out of Sight” ,”Up Yours”, “No Way Out”, and the sparkling phenomenal instrumental “7th of Last Month” another one of those songs that you wish were longer, and continues the onslaught with “Sex Maggot” and “Love Dolls” until it’s interrupted with a lounge lizard guest star crooning with the Goos on the CCR remake “Down On The Corner”

The band branches out musically with dynamic melodies on Side 2’s opening tracks “Had Enough” and the gorgeous “Road To Salinas” , returns to the snotty punk of “Misfortune” and closes with a Stones cover song and Johnny’s warm acoustic standout coda ode to “James Dean”. Like “Jed”‘s cover, the Goos played like they were DWI and crank and every song was catchy and memorable and laid the groundwork for the pop punk driven hardcore that would be monetized by bands like Green Day and Blink 182 about a half decade later.

Prong, Force Fed

https://store-darkhorizonrecords-com.3dcartstores.com/assets/images/prongforcefedcd.jpg

New York City Hardcore became a huge movement in the late 80’s and maintained its relevance by staying provincial and being populated by excellent bands like the Cro-Mags, War Zone and Agnostic Front just to name a few. Which led to the spawning of the  thrash metal godhead band Prong.

Their debut “Force Fed” (which was recorded in 87) showcased excellent and almost poetic songwriting and performing on dense hardcore songs barely exceeding 3 minutes as per the NYCH standard. Tommy Victor’s stellar riffs open up “Freezer Burn”, “Forgery” and “Senseless Abuse” while Ted Parsons relentless and savage drumming conjures up the feeling of a runaway local subway train. “Primitive Origins” slows it down just a little bit until reverting their normal breakneck pace of the first 3 tracks as “Aggrevated Condition” reveals the influence of their contemporaries Slayer and Anthrax.

The brilliant debut album continues it’s savage head banging neck breaking pace while buttressed by killer instrumentals on songs like “Decay”, the title track, “the Taming” and the tracks “The Colisseum” and the chugging “It’s been decided” respectively. Then closes with the apocalyptic themes incorporating elements of arty noise in “Look Up At the Sun” and Drainpipe”.

 

The album is a 30 minute treatise on mass consumerism and the biological breakdowns of disease. Like the best metal bands Metallica and Slayer, Prong’s focused aggression and musical execution made them stand out.

Janet Jackson, Rhythm Nation 1814

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2020/02/9a3dc-rhythm-nation-janet-jackson-thatgrapejuice.jpg

Even though there were a lot of albums that needed acknowledgement, they had to be set aside with every listing it’s obligatory to include a blockbuster release. But obligation doesn’t mean shit with Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation. It wasn’t just an album, it was also a movement and it warrants mention and recognition here also. Produced by The Time’s Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (who also produced her previous blockbuster mallrat album Control), Ms. Jackson and her studio allies took the sounds and signs of the times from contemporaries like Prince, Tracy Chapman and Public Enemy, the new jack swing genre and even industrial music and assembled an excellent commercial and conceptual R&B pop album.

Ms. Jackson starts off the album showing off great songwriting and sincere takes on current events, pleas for activism and politics on the hard driving funk songs “Rhythm Nation”, “State of The World” and the brilliant “The Knowledge”. Then come more and more hits in the world wide hit confections “Miss You Much” and “Love Will Never Do”

Then the world party gets disrupted with the pathos of “Living in A World (they didn’t make)” as Ms. Jackson laments about what the children of the future that Whitney Houston sang about are going to inherit from their adult leaders if they are able to survive in the streets rife with gang violence.

Ms. Jackson slips politics on the dance track “Alright” (Kendrick Lamar would do something similar with his same titled hit), followed by the bouyant”Escapade” and the surprisingly good frozen metal track “Black Cat”Ms. Jackson wisely decides to leave the love songs for last with great tracks like “Lonely” the hit “Come Back to Me” and “Someday is Tonight”.  An amazing and well composed and sequenced album from a remarkable talent. Which is not a surprise coming from a woman from a musical family and who played Penny on Good Times and Willis’s girlfriend on Different Strokes.

 

Honorable Mention: Public Enemy Fight The Power 12” single.

https://images.eil.com/large_image/PUBLIC_ENEMY_FIGHT%2BTHE%2BPOWER-46507.jpg

Even though Public Enemy already established themselves as the only band that mattered with two great albums (including what is still the greatest rap album ever made), they were still a great reliable singles band capable of dropping hit after hit like Sly and The Family Stone used to do when they first came out. So it was only natural when Spike Lee got down with the P.E. and let them write the theme song for his landmark and best movie “Do The Right Thing”.

When “Fight The Power” came out a few weeks before the movie released and killed everything else on the radio, making the call to assemble and gather arms one of the greatest political protest anthems as well as the biggest song of the summer. The song was so catchy that the character Radio Raheem played it about 20 times in the movie it propelled and would ultimately play it to (his) death.

“Fight the Power”, the music provided by the Bomb Squad and the virtuoso cutting and fading by Terminator X was as incendiary as Chuck’s vitriol proselytizing and pop culture shaming lyrics, followed by the Brandford Marsalis free jazz sax coda carrying the song to the end. Though Chuck dates the song on the first line, Fight The Power’s music and the message stays powerful and relevant even in this near quarter old century we’re in now. Especially with Trump in the White House and Bernie Sanders bringing a formidable challenge to his fragile and waning reign on the nation.

Queens

In South Richmond Hill, a 92-year-old woman collecting recyclables was attacked by a man who threw her to the ground behind a parked car then strangled her and raped her and left her for dead on the sidewalk near her house. The woman succumbed to her injuries and died hours later. The man who got caught who was on video stalking her and throwing her down claimed he never sexually violated her and that he was trying to help her up but his belt broke and his dick fell on her. His attempt at “helping” left her with multiple fractures and bruises on her frail body and a broken spine. He finally confessed to the brutal and heartless killing of Maria Fuentes by blaming it on his mother for not giving him enough affection.

Fareez Kahn was found to have mental problems and sexual urges plus he also attacked his father with a broken cup and got kicked out of the house two months ago. He was also an illegal immigrant that was on detainer for deportation by Immigration Customs Enforcement because of this very incident and were constantly thwarted by de Blasio’s NYPD to arrest him even though his father requested an order of protection against his son.

Even though the NYPD claims that they never once heard from ICE about the detainer, the federal government is suing this city for not cooperating by withholding information about Kahn’s whereabouts after he was released from assault charges from attacking his father (who decided to drop the charges against him). After six weeks of slumming around and wandering the streets, Kahn raped and murdered Ms. Fuentes.

This gruesome incident got the attention of President Donald Trump as he included it in his State of the Union speech in defense of ICE while condemning New York’s sanctuary city policy (even though he didn’t mention Ms. Fuentes name). This led to Mayor de Blasio and his city hall minions to react and accuse Donnie playing politics and exploiting Kahn’s killing even though it was politics that got in the way and the city was exploiting Trump to undermine  ICE agents legally trying to detain a violent mentally ill man off the streets because de Blasio’s NYPD didn’t seem to want to until it was too late . Which is just as tragic, as petty and irresponsible partisan politics led to the unnecessary and preventable death of Ms. Fuentes while she was doing her daily routines. It’s also tragic that she was still recycling bottles to earn some extra money, which should be a damning condemnation of this city’s ossifying affordability crisis

In East Elmhurst, two month old twin boys suffocated to death in their crib at a hotel homeless shelter while their father put them down for a nap after he smoked a joint and fell asleep himself. The mother wasn’t around because she was reportedly ejected from the shelter for reasons unknown.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2020/01/queens-shelter.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=915

Back in 2017, a bill signed by Governor Cuomo led to State Dept. Of Health to institute a safe baby box program to prevent crib death by distributing cribs to poor parents and also literature stressing safety measures like not putting stuffed animals, loose mattresses, and excessive blankets and pillows in the boxes. Somehow de Blasio’s Department of Homeless Services must have forgot about that. The only proactive measures that were made in this tragedy so far seems to be the effort by the authorities to cover it up.

To think that there isn’t adequate affordable housing and safe shelters for these two babies to rest. Which is another damning condemnation on this city’s ossifying affordability crisis.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2020/01/twin-babies-queens-shelter.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=915

Also in East Elmhurst, a man died after getting shot in the chest and another man was shot in the abdomen moments later on the street.

In Jackson Heights at the 74th St./Roosevelt Ave. Station, two men approached a man on the E train and punched him twice and robbed his cellphone and wallet.

Also in Jackson Heights, a man got killed crossing the street by a driver ran over him with his car by backing up towards the intersection

In Jamaica, a man hanging out in front of a laundromat and got confronted by four men, and one of them shot him in the back.

Also in Jamaica, a man attacked his girlfriend while she was sleeping in a room at Jamaica Hospital with her ill six-month-old baby that was admitted there. As the woman awoke on a chair, her boyfriend slashed her in the face and arm.

Again in Jamaica, a woman snatched a purse off a wheelchair while the handicapped woman was trying on clothes in a dressing room.

 

And again in Jamaica, an argument between two men on a street corner escalated when one of them shot the other multiple times hitting him in the back, arm and leg.

And again in Jamaica, a man grabbed a woman who was walking on the sidewalk and took her into an alley and raped her.

In Ozone Park, a fire broke out inside a corner deli and quickly spread to and destroyed five other houses. Five firefighters were injured including an off-duty fireman who assisted in putting out the blazes.

Also in Ozone Park, a man along with two passengers in a stolen car got pulled over by cops in a traffic stop and the driver hit the gas and sped down the street then crashed into a parked livery car and broke the leg of its driver and injured his passenger sitting inside as they ran away from the scene.

In South Ozone Park, big rigs are being left parked by a traffic island for weeks, causing a hazardous obstruction on the busy boulevard by the Belt Parkway.

Also in South Ozone Park, a man snatched $500 out of woman’s hand as she was playing a jackpot slot machine in Resorts World, denying her the chance of the casino robbing her instead.

Again in South Ozone Park, a rash of wheel thefts was reported by the 106th Pct.

In South Jamaica, a man walking home from work was stabbed to death by a man in front of a hotel homeless shelter.

Also in South Jamaica, a man pulled over by cops for stealing a car fled on foot and a grenade dropped out his pocket during the pursuit and subsequent arrest.

In Woodhaven, a gas station attendant got into an argument with a customer who then attacked him as he punched him multiple times and slashed him in the face and robbed $60 from him.

In Corona, after refusing to pay his rent, a man moving out of a house got into a tussle with his landlord who was preventing him from removing a bed. The man then pushed the landlord off the stoop causing him to land on the concrete on his head. The landlord died from his injury the next day.

 

Also in Corona, a mother got seriously injured and her 10-year-old son died when they were both hit by a garbage truck speeding out of a driveway as they were crossing the street.

Again in Corona, two men brawling each other inside a cafe/nite club spilled onto the street then they both got shot at from a gunman around the corner with one getting hit in the stomach and the other shot in the chest who wound up dead.

And again in Corona, a man walked up to another man on the sidewalk and shot him the chest and stole his chain.

In Far Rockaway, a man spat at a woman who wouldn’t allow him to enter a yeshiva school. He also made a universal threat to kill all Jews.

In Flushing, a 74-year-old woman got killed while jaywalking as a jeep hit her in the middle of the block.

Also in Flushing, a man held up a liquor store at gunpoint and robbed it of $800.

In St. Albans, an 18-year-old girl was raped by a man she hitched a ride with back in May. So this guy has been on the streets for about 8 months.

Also in St. Albans, a man was shot in his leg in by two men firing guns at him in a drive by shooting on the street.

Again in St. Albans, a man released from jail 7 months ago got shot to death on the street. The killer is still at large.

And again in St. Albans, a man stole a Catholic Charities truck delivering meals on wheels to residents and rammed into a parked car that wound up plowed into a building, injuring two people inside of it as the truck veered off the road and flipped over after it smashed into a street pole and a mailbox.

In Queens Village, a dead man was found tied up face first on the floor of a burning house that was under development after the FDNY put out the blaze.

Also in Queens Village, a 16-year-old boy shot himself in the foot after he was mobbed by a gang of teenagers in front of a high school.

In Far Rockaway, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the chest by the elevated train tracks.

Also in Far Rockaway, a man got hit by a car while crossing the street.

In Astoria, NYPD personnel parked their personal cars in unauthorized spaces and sidewalks on the first official day of the city’s placard law.

Also in Astoria, two women attacked an 89-year-old woman inside an elevator in an apartment building and robbed her purse.

Again in Astoria, a man went on an assault spree on the sidewalks as he randomly punched two women in the face and also went into a jewelry store and threatened people with a knife.

And again in Astoria, a heavy metal bolt fell from the elevated tracks of the 7 train and crashed through the sunroof of a man’s car. Andy Byford couldn’t comment on this latest threat from the dilapidated infrastructure above us because, well, he up and quit.

In Woodside at the 69th St. Station, a man sucker punched and spit on a conductor on the 7 train when she opened her window to check the platform.

Also in Woodside, a man committed suicide by hanging himself on a lamp post an overpass on the BQE.

Again in Woodside, a man walloped a woman with a blunt instrument while riding his bike near her.

In Forest Hills at the 75th Ave. Station, a man snatched a purse from a woman after she got off the train and ran off. He then tried to use credit cards to purchase video games.

Also in Forest Hills at the 71st Ave./Continental Ave. Station, a singular bedbug was spotted inside a control tower which cause transit workers to panic and flee. Then the tower was fumigated and caused service on the E,F,G, and R lines to be delayed for hours because no one was operating the switches. I said it before and I’ll say it again and again, this is what caused Andy Byford to say goodbye to all that and quit the MTA. A few weeks later, the late bedbug’s next of kin was found in the tower again.

Again in Forest Hills at the Union Turnpike Station, a man menaced a woman by combing his facial hair with a 5 inch knife while she was sitting on the E train then sat down next to her and started jerking off.

And again in Forest Hills and also Glendale, a mall parking garage is being used as a hangout for a meeting place for drag racing on the turnpike and doing donuts on the lot

In Bayside, a 14-year-old girl assaulted a 13-year-old girl inside the cafeteria at the Marie Curie Middle School as three teachers watched and did nothing. Even when an adult tried to break it up, the older girl continued to wail punches on her victim. When said adult let her go, she ran atop a table and did a flying fist drop on her victim then jumped back on the table and preened like a WWE diva.

As this post shows, seven serious crimes have rose in the five boroughs in January compared to last year. Shootings went up by nearly half, robberies went up by a third and significant spikes went up in other felonies like auto theft, burglaries, felony and misdemeanor assaults and grand and petit larcenies.

NYPD, prosecutors, and some elected state officials have tied to these troubling spikes in crime to the bail and criminal justice reform laws that were just passed and recidivist criminals are easily taking advantage of them. Which is true, but the fact of the matter is that they only exacerbated the crime rate stats that have been moderately rising in the past decade (at least the ones that were reported on accurately).

Even Mayor de Blasio has got the hint and has tied the deformed reform laws to city crime’s upward trajectory. But he is only doing that now because he always defers responsibility whenever stats or events make him look and confirm what a weak ass lousy mayor he is. It’s good that he acknowledges this too, but he unwittingly also confirms that the New Bad Days are officially here.

And that is what that is.

Be aware of your surroundings, safest big city.

Andy Byford Walks Away From The M.T.A.

https://ewscripps.brightspotcdn.com/dims4/default/0b504ba/2147483647/strip/true/crop/1920x1008+0+36/resize/1200x630!/quality/90/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fmediaassets.pix11.com%2Ftribune-network%2Ftribwpix-files-wordpress%2F2019%2F05%2Fandy-byford.jpegApparently, “we” will not

On Thursday morning it was all he can stand and he can’t stands no more. Andy Byford, President of MTA transit services, up and quit his job in barely 2 years at the helm.

But we all saw this coming, in fact he actually tried to resign in October but he decided to hug it out with commuters for few more months. Andy really loves trains, and he really really wanted to conquer the perpetual FUBAR disorganization and dysfunction of the running and budgeting of our maligned transit services. He came to NYC and embrace the subway and buses like their were newborn twins. He really earned the title of #Traindaddy.

But the gargoyle overlord and head muckety muck of the MTA Governor Cuomo was not and never enamored with Andy’s passion for mass transit and as we will see a bit later, honesty and transparency. And after Byford’s spotlight interview on 60 minutes and a big spread in the New Yorker magazine, Mario’s son went the passive aggressive route to undermine his position and even responsibility to improve service and bring much needed renovations and remediations of the transit system. Cuomo basically took a page from former mayor and 9/11 exploiter Rudy Giuliani with his own undermining of his first police commissioner William Bratton when he got glowing attention from a national magazine cover story.

But no matter how hard Transit Poppa Byford tried, he just didn’t have the stamina to take total control (and he actually really did try, no one has this visible ever from the MTA and surely never will again). And it wasn’t is fault, because Mario’s son had to make sure all of his efforts were made to be insignificant so he can hog all the glory for any positive outcomes from them.

As this digital publication pointed out last time trying to get the traindaddy’s attention, he was doomed to from the start despite his fast forward plan as trains continued to break down, signals and switches still malfunctioned, infrastructure continued to fray and he also had to deal with that moron tyrant Cuomo constantly riding his ass, especially when Mario’s insecure son devalued his role and position as president and reduced Byford to basically a public relations flack for the subway.

It’s hard to get inside the mind of an intelligent dutiful public servant like Sir Byford, but I know how people can snap when they are being undermined, giving unreasonable demands and belittling reassignments on the job as well as seeing and experiencing things that just make your head explode and I think these were the things that broke his brain:

Starting with the L train revival. President Byford broke the news that the Canarsie Tunnel was so damaged from Hurricane Sandy six years earlier (on top of the certain internal dilapidation after not repairing for that amount of time) that it needed an entire overhaul that required the L to be shut down for a year and four months. Then when January 2019 came around, Generalissimo Cuomo got his official casual jacket on and went into the tunnel with some college professor eggheads and decided to keep the L train running and use another yet cheaper plan to repair the tunnel and reorganize the power supply while letting the L continue to run on limited schedules, thereby throwing Byford’s more feasible and responsible plan that took his entire first year assembling it and threw it in the garbage. The only thing that this really helped was to keep the ossified, overvalued real estate rental market solvent by the L’s train stations along Williamsburg and Bushwick. This heinous overvalued market speculation/fabrication has now spread further south to East New York. And now the MTA decided to add fucking Wifi to the tunnel also.

As if that insult wasn’t demeaning enough, Mario’s megalomaniac son then put Andy through his own summer of hell by diminishing his leadership role as NYCT president, transferring the control of all subway renovation and construction projects to advisory firm Alix Partners while splitting up the transit dept. causing Byford to lose control over the buses. With this unheralded demotion, Byford went from a proactive hands on manager to a glorified public relations flack to promote subway improvements and fixes for Sith Lord Andrew to glom credit for them. With one stroke, Cuomo reduced Andy Byford from traindaddy to Mr. Pitiful.

The tragic irony of Andrew’s decision to overhaul the offices and Byford’s responsibilities instead of the subway manifested itself in more terrible and predictable mishaps on the trains below and above ground. Most notably one afternoon at Grand Central Station, when the ceiling on the mezzanine broke and vomited gallons and gallons of water onto the floor, as MTA workers left a lone bucket there to catch it. Byford actually showed up and grabbed a big broom and was pushing the fetid water itself in a vain display of accountability. Unfortunately he wasn’t around in Long Island City at the Court Square station when a bearing wall from a tower development collapsed, forming a wave on the platform that nearly got a commuter killed by an arriving train.

Months after Andy was playing janitor, the recently appointed NYC Transit figurehead went into his new role as pitchman and led an embarrassing press conference for the implementation and unsubtle praise of the OMNY tap pay fare system as another day of transit chaos was happening simultaneously.

Andy also had to hit the streets to address all the rusty metal chunks and broken pieces of wood that were flying off the elevated tracks in Queens, landing on cars and nearly killing drivers and pedestrians. At least his hands on action resulted in getting netting for them.

These things, plus Cuomo’s micromanaging his MTA flunkie board to keep things hush hush about  the spending and planning for projects and fixes for the subway and other projects like extending Penn Station from the general public and Andy and his transit team surely led him to consider and following up on quitting back in October but apparently the governor still needed him to stick around as the $51,500,000,000 MTA capital plan was about to be implemented and the optics would have been immensely bad for Cuomo if one of the main authors of it would leave town.

But come 2020, it was getting clearer that Andy wasn’t going to be around much longer and all signs were there that he mostly wasn’t. For when the Capital Plan was ratified by the MTA board, Byford was not there for it. And a few days after it was passed on the first Monday of this year as millions of people were going back to work and school, the entire transit system broke down after signal malfunctions on the 7 and a switch malfunction on the B lines, throwing all train lines into chaos. Even though it dominated the news on online websites and social media, Andy Byford oddly did not appear at all to assuage commuters.

Then there was the MTA’s decision to overhaul the entire bus map in Queens. While supplying their narrative by describing the new routes as remixes, cutting some essential bus stops as enhancements and supplying the routes with articulated buses, the MTA tried to enhance their plans by being sneaky as they opened their first workshop that  with commuters that they barely publicized by holding it in a basement of a building surrounded by scaffolding in Jackson Heights. Thanks to social media and the blog Queens Crap (of which I am an admin) that published the meetings and the horrible new bus route remix, thousands of citizens showed up.

And what do you know, among the people in that crowded rumpus room was none other than the traindaddy himself Mr. Byford, even though his responsibility of running the buses were yanked away from him. Byford did what he did best and without fear and took questions, ideas and very loud constructive criticism from all and reassured them that the routes were subjected to change (or to be remixed again).

But the last straw that could have led Byford to quit so soon came last Thursday at the 71st Ave/Continental Ave. station. When workers in a control tower was overwhelmed so much by the sight of a bedbug (that’s right a single bedbug) that they evacuated their work space and caused four transit lines to be delayed for hours for it to get fumigated. Sure Andy quit because of his reduced role caused by an advisory firm hired by Cuomo that specializes in downsizing working staffs, but it’s not hard to imagine the Byford’s head getting beet red and blowing steam out of his ears to hear how those tower workers reacted. (Sorry to digress but why is it even called a tower when it’s actually a bunker since it’s underground).

And that is that. Andy Byford, the most hands on, accessible and accountable MTA official this city and state has ever had is gone. And he walks away after actually improving transit schedules thanks to Save Safe Seconds program that made the trains go faster and making the trains more handicapped accessible, even though the new train speeds may be responsible for all that heavy debris falling from the elevated trains and a judge’s decision favoring a class action lawsuit for the transit system provide such access respectably. The only mistake Byford did (and it was a big one) was approving a contract for Bombadier to supply new trains on the A, C, J, lines that kept malfunctioning, notably one incident where a door remained widely ajar as it was still moving (he actually had a similar problem with that train manufacturer when he ran Toronto’s transit. But at least he won’t have to put up with Cuomo’s moronic totalitarian bullshit and arrogance and de Blasio’s indifference and shirking of his own responsibility for the subway and buses that run in the city he governs (in fact it’s doubtful if the corrupt mayor was ever in the same room with Byford at all during his tenure).

Although he may be bailing out at the right time. In a few months, the Canarsie Tunnel is scheduled to be complete. It may have saved the commutes of millions of citizens and kept morons from moving from their 3,000 a month tenement and tower apartments but the ramifications from it may turn out to be dire being that Cuomo’s decision to use  cinnabun glaze polymer to fortify the decayed walls might not endure and keeping the L running during construction as silica dust was floating in the ether on the platforms of 1st Avenue and Bedford Ave. will surely have an effect on commuters waiting for their rides in years to come akin to all those who cleaned up the twin towers remains at ground zero after the 9/11 attacks.

But at least we’ll all enjoy the convenience of using our phones to pay the fare dealing with this shit with OMNY. You won’t even have to take it out your pocket either for the scanners can usurp your data by walking past by or through the turnstile.

These things including a rise in crime on the subways, graffiti coming back, the homeless population preferring to use the trains and stations as safer alternatives for habitation and continuing persistent problems with the antiquated switches and signals and even new signals (especially now that the top expert vetted and picked by Byford quit a few days after), and most essentially the persistence of the moron tyrant governor and his MTA board’s continued secrecy and obligatory but opaque releases of the budgeting to fix and modernize mass transit, it’s plain to see that even the beloved Traindaddy couldn’t save Cuomo’s MTA, the worst fucking transit system in the universe.

And we the commuters have to choke on that.

Update:

I just thought of something else. Mario’s son’s hiring of Andy Byford came right after the summer of hell he declared for mass transit back in 2018 and at time Cuomo promised a new era of transparency and accountability just like when he promised he would bring the same to end the embedded and ingrained corruption in the halls of the state assembly and senate with starting the Moreland Commission. And like Byford when the transit system proved to overwhelming to fix, Cuomo terminated Moreland too when investigators found so much graft and corruption with the governor’s office and the leaders Silver and Skelos of the assembly and senate, leading to the arrest and conviction of those two scumbags.
