In Port Richmond, a man being pursued by police over a lack of a front license plate sped into and hit a 13 year old walking his brother crossing the street, critically injuring him and running away on foot.

In St. George, a mother of three was arriving home from an amusement park when she was hit by a speeding SUV as she was taking one of her kids out of her car, leaving her in critical condition and a chance she might lose her leg. The driver fled the area and is at large.

Manhattan

In the West Village on 14th st., a man on a battery-powered bicycle rode up to three men on the sidewalk and shot at them multiple times.

In the East Village, a fire went off at a “hip” pizzeria, reaching to the apartments above it. The establishment is setting up a move to a larger space directly across the street.

In the Financial District on Wall Street, 2 food vendors got into a fight over sidewalk space when one of them bashed the other man’s head as he laid on the ground.

At the Union Square train station, a performance artist came to the defense of an elderly couple harassed by 3 kids doing “showtime” dancing in the car who were yelling slurs at them and swatting a yarmulke off the man’s head. The kids followed the artist out of the train and attacked and pummeled him with punches and beat him with his own hula hoop after he tried to engage them in a dance battle.

This incident has discouraged the victim from commuting on the subway out of fear, as a rise in violence by aggressive homeless people has become widespread despite denials by the MTA, whose own employees have witnessed erratic behavior from the homeless population in the stations, on the platforms and in train cars.

This particular incident cannot stress deep enough the utter lack of mental facilities in this city, and the disturbing fact that citizens have to take extra precaution taking precaution when it comes to avoidable confrontations.

But at least she didn’t get shot, which our mayoral spokesperson and fucking moron Eric Phillips probably thinks it’s just dandy and a sign of continued winning.

Cellphone masturbator Eric and his cowardly boss Mayor De Faustio might want to put down their craft beers celebrating this dubious and tone deaf victory and acknowledge that one of those murders, the woman who got shot point blank in Coney Island by her estranged husband who is a now a fugitive, were major stories in the NY Daily News and the NY Post. This social media post denigrates the severity and the memory of the victim and reduces her to a marginal victim and another slight statistic so imbeciles like the aforementioned can continue to make comparisons to what crime was like 25 years ago and things are so swell and vibrant now.

The citizens of this city they are running into the ground would be best to take advice and information elsewhere.

Wrath Of The Scumlords: Slimy Disservice And Tactics At Seagirt 711, Displaced Elmhurst Residents Demand Independent Monitor

https://i1.wp.com/ad009cdnb.archdaily.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/51ef160ae8e44e6da300008e_-finalists-announced-for-far-roc-competition-for-resilient-rockaways_8524850936_16663d04ff_h-528x396.jpg

The 711, Rockaway Beach.

On the gorgeous yet still gritty shores of Far Rockaway, there sits a beachfront apartment complex on 711 Seagirt Avenue called the Sandcastle, and it actually resembles one. Actually four, the color of the brick buildings matches the sand just feet away from the lots. But aesthetics is not what this is about. This is about another story about people, in this case elderly people, being undermined, mistreated, intimidated and expendable by the perpetrating owners and more indifference by elected higher-ups.

A report by the local paper “The Wave” focused on the “711”, a building marketed and designed for senior citizens, and the myriad problems consuming the building and the frustrations and complaints from the tenants. Insufficient and inefficient security conditions abound with broken intercoms and no guard personnel (the listing for the building states that it has a doorman and conceirge), leading to strangers roaming and suspected drug dealing in the halls and staiways all day and night, and homeless people settling in the concierge area. And of course there are pressing maintenance problems that get ignored.

The management of the complex, Sarasota Gold LLC, according to stressed-out residents has never made a concerted effort to show up for tenant meetings.

It’s a safe bet that the only effort the mysterious gentlemen (and maybe a few token women) of this LLC is to discourage the people from living there. And being that they are at an advanced age and vulnerable, it’s practically easy pickings. Now why does this seem quite nefarious, because these are the usual brass tactics of avaricious landlords when an area suddenly becomes “hot” or “cool” like Rockaway has become in the past 5 years. West of the 711 has seen a lot of development up the boardwalk with sleek new towers, a major upscale “hip” hotel, and actual luxury condo buildings on 116th street. But more essentially, a massive and still shocking and ludicrous expensive designer food and craft brew culture scene.

Basically, Sarasota is just conducting savage business as usual as was done in other areas consisting of working poor, retired and even middle class (there are just too many to name right now). And now it’s Rockaway’s turn, especially now that the boardwalk is complete and ferry service has returned. For the goal of the Gentrification Industrial Complex is to turn the entire 5 boroughs into a luxury theme park for the disposable income transients and transplants to our state. The G.I.C. turned Brooklyn into a brand and now it’s Queens’ turn.

So why not put a scare into old people and let the place rot from the inside and outside. Hell, NYCHA has been doing this for decades, sure the feds didn’t provide them enough funding, but the money they got from them and the city they found ways to piss it away. They don’t spend enough money anymore, well mostly because they can’t, and maybe because they won’t, being that they have to spend on other things, like medicine and food they can afford. They are unable to ride bikes like the target and favored demographic does.

https://images1.apartments.com/i2/n_C2tqKPAXXVCJU2QvIQWoT1Rjz1ijroRyk2ErZgw-Y/117/the-martinique-elmhurst-ny-martinique-plaza.jpg

The Martnique Plaza before some idiot blazed it.

Meanwhile in Elmhurst,  hundreds of people displaced when a fire engulfed their apartment building, the Martinique Plaza, ignited by an idiot contractor using a torch and propane which were forbidden for the work he was assigned to do, are demanding to appoint an independent monitor to determine the feasibility and the improvements of their homes.

The tenants were moved to hotels (thanks Mayor De Faustio, the only good aspect of your homeless policy) and later moved to shelters when they found the hotels environment to be unsafe and repressive (so much for that, these hotels aren’t even good for a night or two, what they are actually meant and exist for). Since then, they have organized and are very shrewd and quite cognizant of the methods and motives of landlords borough-wide and are very concerned of being disenfranchised from their dwellings. A good reason for their justified skepticism is that the buildings management offered them to move to new apartments if they don’t sue, a bigger reason is that they hired that imbecile who forced them on the streets, and the hugest reason is their superintendent initially lied about the schmuck on the roof until the NYFD came.

The good news is that the building management is being a bit more cooperative. Still, they tried to discourage them and that’s still scummy. It took some nifty assembling and good counseling by the tenants to put their balls on the coals. The folks at the 711 got a harder and higher dune to climb because of their presence on fabricated high end real estate and are relying on some guy running for public advocate.

Speaking of advocacy, where is Letitia ” Fatty Fat Fat” James? Or Councilman Donovan Richards, who was last seen crowing about the Mott St shopping center redevelopment,  or even their congressman Gregory “Squatter” Meeks? The 711 is practically under siege and people who spent their whole lives working, paying taxes so they can live near the nice beach are afraid to open their doors and go outside to enjoy it. And the owners and management are not only avoiding the building but letting the wolves run amuck. And these are elderly people for christsakes

This has been asked before and will be asked over and over. Does someone have to get killed first to get the services needed?

Aberdeen News: Dakota Access pipeline leaked 84 gallons of crude oil in Spink County

A leaky surge pump along the Dakota Access oil pipeline spilled 84 gallons of crude oil in April at the pump station just north of Crandon in Spink County. That’s according to Brian Walsh, an environmental scientist with state Department of Environment and Natural Resources Ground Water Quality Program.

The pipeline, which will move oil from shale formations in western North Dakota roughly 1,170 miles to Patoka, Ill., is not yet operational. In north-central South Dakota, it cuts through Campbell, McPherson, Edmunds, Faulk and Spink counties.

 According to American News archives, the pump station is on 10.59 acres of land in rural Spink County that Dakota Access purchased Feb. 3, 2016, from Donald Gene and Rita Mary Masat. Crandon is southeast of Redfield and east of Tulare. “At the pipeline’s pump station there’s what’s called a surge tank, which is used to store crude oil occasionally during the regular operation of the pipeline,” Walsh said in a phone interview with the American News Tuesday. “And connected to that tank is a pump, which pumps oil back into the pipeline system, and the leak occurred at that surge pump.”

EcoWatch: Two More Spills for Dakota Access Pipeline

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) system leaked more than 100 gallons of oil in two separate incidents in North Dakota in March.

This is the $3.8 billion project’s third known leak. The controversial pipeline, which is not yet finished and not yet operational, also spilled 84 gallons of oil in South Dakota on April 4.

The state’s Health Department database shows that two barrels, or 84 gallons, spilled on March 3 in Watford City due to a leaky flange (the section connecting two sections of pipeline) at a pipeline terminal.

All those people from the Standing Rock tribe tried to warn everybody. The public, the corporate news media, the Army Corps Of Engineers and everyone in elected office from their own elected representatives of their own state all the way to the White House. Even to all those cops dressed like stormtroopers shooting tear gas canisters, rubber bullets and jet stream freezing water from water cannons

Although the tribe got a brief respite from the insignificant last President, Barack Obama, Figurehead Donald Trump gave the go ahead in one of his first executive orders with that stupid Sharpie penned giant signature of his. Because as everyone knows now, employment and commerce progress cannot be made unless Don Worthless is not personally enriched by government programs. As well as thousands of other greedy malcontents and gangsters consisting of the billionaire donor class, national and overseas, various tyrannical world leaders, and other lowly elected officials personal bank portfolios.

Noted that these were initial tests before the pipeline is operable, but they are under strict scrutiny because of the way it was legislatively approved. But going by the contempt for journalism and the dissemination of information by President/Godfather Don, who knows what measures the energy company will do to get that line operated if they feel the fourth estate is needling them too much. Since Energy Transfer Partners saw nothing wrong in sending the hounds and counter-terrorism security contractors after protesters and Trump has made it comfortable and practically legal to physically shove, pin against the wall and choke slam reporters.

The gangstas are in charge, nation.

Fascism Wins In Montana: Candidate For Congress Engages With Reporter, Picks Him Up And Body Slams Him, Breaks His Glasses, Gets Charged For Misdemeanor Assault And Wins Election For Vacant Congressional Position Anyway.

https://i0.wp.com/wac.450f.edgecastcdn.net/80450F/newstalkkgvo.com/files/2015/08/Greg-Gianforte-Fox-Business.jpgCongressman Greg Gianforte, Doppleganger J.K. Simmons from “Whiplash”

Montana, U.S.A.

So it begins. The establishment of “Fear Itself”

Following the illegal oppression of the right to protest by a foreign country, and months of all those accusations of fake news by the fake chief executive since holding office on January 20th 2017 (and a reprehensible remark by the DHS chief John Kelly on press protocol at the Coast Guard graduation ceremony).

A reporter from the Guardian, Ben Jacobs, attempted to get answers from the Republican candidate about aspects of the Expendable American Health Care Act after he wouldn’t divulge any details or opinions the last time he was asked by another reporter from that publication.

Initially trying to blow him off by passing the reporter to an aide of his, as is the usual procedure for these sold out miscreants, elected and running, not even a second later, he let is inner heel wrestler personality take over.

The candidate literally body slammed a reporter. In front of witnesses and most damnably in front of a Fox News affiliate:

At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the reporter. As Gianforte moved on top of Jacobs, he began yelling something to the effect of, “I’m sick and tired of this!”

Jacobs scrambled to his knees and said something about his glasses being broken. He asked Faith, Keith and myself for our names. In shock, we did not answer. Jacobs then said he wanted the police called and went to leave. Gianforte looked at the three of us and repeatedly apologized. At that point, I told him and Scanlon, who was now present, that we needed a moment. The men then left.

Here is a dramatization of the account above:

That bastard who feloniously assaulted the reporter was charged with misdemeanor assault citation by the county sheriff, who is also a donor to his campaign.

The day after, Greg Gianforte won the election.

Something tells me that this motherfucking prick assaulted this reporter knowing full well that he would get away with it and the people would turn out big for him, and he assumed right. For he has just exploited the momentum gifted to him by Fighurehead Trump and his persistent maligning, libeling of the free press who declared was the enemy of the American People.

As I wrote about of extreme precedence, this follows recent excessive charges and convictions of those who work and yearn for accountability from our snowflake representatives during Trump’s currently brief reign. Like the arrest and sentencing of an elderly woman protester from Code Pink, laughing out loud during Jeff Sessions hilarious confirmation hearing. A reporter who got roughhoused and handcuffed after attempting to question HHS Secretary Tom Price, who later praised the police for their ordered repression. A reporter from the National Press Club trying to ask questions at an FCC hearing got thrown against and pinned to a wall by security guards and was later thrown into a bathroom and was interrogated by them.

And here is the result of these felonious assaults on democracy. The election victory of an entitled, insecure, obscenely and undeservedly rich and inherently corrupt, violent snowflake asshole. This is not a dystopian novel, comic book or movie anymore. This is reality. There is going to be more of this. In fact, N.Y.C.’s own Mayor Big Slow De Blasio has been demonstrating passive aggressive oppressive tactics for the past few months when all investigations were dropped against him for his pay for play and slush funding approach to governing.

If anything, and judging by Fox News showing solidarity after the initial shock of the free press smackdown by Greg, this might light a long overdue fire under the bottom line attentive asses of the corporate news media. Thanks to the suplex heard around the world, it has gave birth to a new market of hardcore, unapologetic, uncompromising  investigative journalism. If not, then they better arm reporters like Ben Jacobs with brass knuckles and baseball bats.

UPDATE:

Apparently, the newly elected congressman had endorsements from 3 major dailies from the state and had an early advantage because of early voting. So Greg “the Lame Undertaker” Gianforte choke slammed a journalist knowing full well he had the election locked and the support of major newspapers, of a obsequious sheriff who donated to his campaign to bring down serious charges and despairingly, a subservient public who supports fascist acts and violent intimidation to oppress reporters and dissenters.

What Gianforte did is what mobsters used to do to anyone who would question their intentions. Mario Puzo couldn’t write this shit up. Figurehead Donald Trump has taken his experience working with the Italian and Russian mafias to build his empire in NYC and beyond and has now instilled it in his administration and is infecting the machinations of government processes and local politics in the states of America.

The Congressman beat up that reporter because he knew he already won the election.

These political gangsters have to be whacked, stat.

Alley Pond Park

 

Queens

A 16 year old male member of the notorious widespread gang MS-13, who had prior arrests and survived an earlier stabbing, was found dead with multiple stab wounds in his chest in Alley Pond Park in Bayside by a bird watcher on Sunday afternoon.

A dead body was found floating n the east river by Hunters Point Park in Long Island City, an area that has seen high end luxury tower overdevelopment and obscene rent increases.

At a middle school in Elmhurst, an 11 year old student brought a BB gun to school to show off to his friends and fired it and struck a teacher in the ankle.

In Ridgewood, 5 men were arrested for solicitation in a prostitution sweep on the corner of Cypress Ave.

In a shopping mall in Flushing, a 60 year old was loitering around a children’s clothing store, Chuck E Cheese and a video arcade and molested and groped a woman and 3 girls aged 8 to 11, the latter ones the deviant asked them if “it felt good” and “do you like it?”

Manhattan

In Midtown West, a brawl in front of a public school among two students returning from suspensions, led to one of them attacking the other with a knife and slashing and stabbing him, then proceeded to stab 3 other teenage males and fled the area.

A block away from that incident on 51st by Broadway, a man who got pissed off at a truck driver hopped on the side of the vehicle as it was moving, jumped off when the road narrowed from construction partitions and got his backpack caught on a fence and fell off and got crushed to death by falling under the truck’s wheels

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, a corrections officer shot himself and a female police recruit showing off his gun in a bar.

At the F station in Herald Square at 1:10 p.m., a 50 year old woman got slashed in the face by a man following an argument on the platform.

On the Lower East Side near Sara Roosevelt Park, a 61 year old grandmother collecting recyclables to earn some extra money was mugged, brutally beaten and bloodied and left lying unconscious on the ground by a 23 year old man.

At the 14th street station on 8th avenue in Greenwich Village, a man committed suicide, severing his legs and died by jumping in front of an incoming uptown train around 11:15 a.m.

In West Harlem, a person got shot around 5:15 p.m.

In East Harlem, a burglar broken into a woman’s apartment and stole $3,500 dollars in electronics and jewelry. This is the fourth such incident of a dramatic rise of burglaries in that area’s precinct in the past month. These young pioneers uptown better call their realtors, looks like they got cheated.

In Harlem, which some fools are trying to rename SoHa to fabricate housing and rental market rates, a mentally disturbed man pacing up and down the streets in front of moving traffic at the intersection of Adam Clayton Powell Blvd and 119 st jumped on top of the roofs of two police cars and another black vehicle.

Bronx

In Eastchester, a man entering an unlicensed cab was robbed of his gold chain. In pursuit of the thief, the cab driver got shot by a man who met up with the crook.

In Westchester Square, a Meals On Wheels aid group’s trucks that deliver food to seniors have been vandalized in their lot.

Brooklyn

In Bed-Stuy,  a bus driver was sprayed with a toxic substance by a woman wearing a surgical mask.

Near the Brooklyn College campus in Flatbush, shots were heard from a nearby brawl at the intersection of Nordstrom and Flatbush aves.

A woman got punched in the face as she tried to defend other commuters subjected to racial slurs on the 4 train at the Nevins St. station in Downtown Brooklyn.

In Gravesend, a 12 year old boy approached an 80 year old woman cleaning up in front of her house and punched her in the face following two prior incidents when he hit her with a metal rod and tried to set her coat on fire.

In Greenpoint, a 43 year old woman was struck by a bicycle rider who ran the red light, causing temporary memory loss, injuries to her foot, clavicle and head, and economic duress, since her employer doesn’t provide health insurance. According to the police report, the biker claimed he was unable to stop (was this idiot riding a fixie sans brakes?) and was not even arrested or issued a ticket (???!!!).  New York Shitty has a profile on the victim and where you can donate to help her, since her precinct is shelving her in the Marginal Victims Unit.

Also in Greenpoint at McGorlick Park, a man was bashed in the head and slashed in the face by 3 men when he was trying to return a pack of cigarettes he saw one of the culprits drop on the ground.

And throughout the 5 boroughs, most heavily in Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island, overdoses from heroin and fentanyl has rose 22% compared to last year at this time. A total of 344 people have died so far. These deaths have not been included in the NYPD’s monthly crime statistics and reports.

*try not to misconstrue this as racist. and if you do, you never been to one of those drive thru safari habitats

New Bad Days 18: Navy Vet, Inspired By Recent Terrorist Attacks, Kills 1 And Injures 22 With His Car At Times Square And A Growth Of Despairing Events

Shortly after the crash

Manhattan

On Thursday afternoon in Times Square, a navy veteran high on angel dust was speeding south on 7th avenue abruptly reversed course, sped up north on the sidewalk and hit various people, killing one and injuring 22 and crashed his vehicle into bollards on the corner of 45th st, in an imitation of recent attacks in England and France encouraged by the terror organization ISIS using vehicles to cause mass casualties. Mayor De Blasio announces repeatedly with desperate fervor to available press that it was not terrorist related. Although not related, it was terrorist influenced, as it turns out his motive was just to kill as many people as he could. Unrelated, the killer was a believer in Scientology. Definitely unrelated and repulsive, Marla Maples, The Godfather President’s second wife, was at the crime scene taking pictures of herself for her Instagram account under the ruse of “sharing prayers” with the frightened people there.

At the Columbus Circle station in Midtown, a shoplifter ran into the subway pursued by 2 plain clothes cops escaped when the token clerk wouldn’t open the service door. When the cop showed his badge, the clerk deliberately move slow to activate the door. As the cop demanded his MTA badge and name, the clerk first ignored him then shoved his badge in the cop’s face and later cut him on the hand when he grabbed it after the cop looked at it, leading to his arrest on charges of obstruction, resisting arrest and assaulting an officer.

On the east side of Midtown, a crowbar fell off a newly built luxury tower on 59th st. landing on a taxi and injuring the driver

Two men fighting outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal by Times Square led to a slashing. The attacker fled, blended into the crowd and escaped.

In Inwood, a man beat the daylights out of two men who were sitting down, leaving one of the victims brain dead. It stemmed from salacious comments made towards the suspects girlfriend.

Extreme Precedence

By now, the world has seen the illegal violation of our nation’s sovereignty by the President of Turkey and his entourage, oppressing the first amendment rights and brutally assaulting of a group of protesters across the street from the embassy. Now it has been revealed that son of a bitch Erdrogan was sitting in his town car like a STD infected pussy giving the order to his goons to beat the crap out of the people picketing there.

 

The reaction to this has been swift from Americans, especially all those with social media accounts, but not enough to the greedy sycophant cowards in the House and Senate, with a select few like John “Return Of The Maverick” McCain, calling for investigations and even the ouster of the Turkish diplomat to the U.S..

While it is a fine thing to see punitive action, there is an underlying reason why that motherfucker Recep felt so comfortable bringing his authoritarian style of handling dissent here. And it’s not only that Figurehead Trump, with his mutual respect, admiration for the Wild Turk and Don’s obvious desire to imitate Erdrogan, the man and the tyrant. It’s that this similar abusive treatment and intimidation has been dished out regularly at any type of mass protest in the past 15 years by our own government, notably the militarization of local police forces in cities.

I recall when the Republican National Convention came to New York City, and the NYPD was deployed to cordon off protestors during marches and subjecting people into free speech zones. Anyone thought to breach these protocols instantly were placed in handcuffs, and that included passerbys and reporters. Since there were so many people detained for exercising their rights to free expression and assembly, the city, run by Mayor Bloomberg, set up a detainment center that was ignonimously called “Gitmo on the Hudson”.

Since those months of infamy, the last major national gatherings of public protest were the Occupy Wall St. movements and their nationwide spinoffs, standing ground and occupying plaza spaces and college campuses in major cities against the banking industry that ruined the economy and was rewarded with a socialist style bailout for their troubles. The people were subsequently met with injuries emitting from batons, rubber bullets, and pepper spray from the mass throngs of police depts. deployed to provide safety and security for them all.

But for the brevity’s sake and abject significance, there were two recent disgraceful events in the past year of government oppression committed that parallels the odious attack in D.C. the other day.

There was the mass protest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It stemmed from a shooting death of Alton Sterling, who was prone face down on the ground, by a cop who claimed that he was armed as the officer and his partner were attempting to cuff him. When throngs of people showed up to march on the streets, organized by the Black Lives Matter movement, they were confronted by cops in full military gear, advanced weaponry and actual tanks. As people were marching forward, the police suddenly attacked everyone. The most disturbing part was when a bunch of protesters went into a house of someone offering sanctuary, the cops broke inside, warrantless, and dragged people out and brutally arrested them.

There was also this moment of clarity summarizing the asinine, excessive use of force and government ordered oppression:

https://theintercept.com/wp-uploads/sites/1/2016/07/baton-rouge-protester.jpg

The actual case against the cops was mired in controversy and chicanery by the Baton Rogue police dept, with a report of witness and evidence tampering involving a convenience store manager, breaking into store owners video cameras and taking the footage of the killing along with his cellphone. The cop has since been acquitted of all charges.

Then during last autumn and winter, during the waning days of the worst presidential campaign and election result the nation has ever seen and under the presidency of the insignificant Barack Obama, there was the DAPL pipeline protest at the river and lands of an Indian reservation in North Dakota. The people who set up camps to stop this grave atrocity and plunder which was made possible by lobbyist and legislative trickery and shameful subservience to big energy business by the Army Core Of Engineers. The protesters-the water protectors were initially being pushed around by hapless security contractors siccing dogs on them. When that didn’t intimidate the Standing Rock tribe, the cops in full stormtrooper gear came down with their tanks and humvees and after a few months, eventually forced them off, but not after shooting them with gas projectiles and water shooting from objects that would be more useful on forest wildfires. The latter which was used during frigid evenings.

Did I mention that this oppression on constitutional freedoms happened, as well as various other protests, under the tenure of President Barack Hussein Obama.

And now we got a guy in the White House who is salivating to use these resources to crush dissent and mass organizing that will surely come if his dystopian, oppressive budget and cultural and unconstitutional policies get enacted. Trump is off to a stellar start as he has appointed a tyrannical sadist rat bastard, Sheriff David Clarke, to DHS Deputy Secretary, who will gladly use his position to use his office to wreck any public assemblies rising up with any demands of accountability from our inherently corrupt administration, with all these dangerous military toys and state and city police depts. at his disposal.

So be prepared for more of this destruction of our civil rights and the transformation of our public servants to government tools of oppression. This is what you the people are paying for. So don’t be shocked when Putin and Kim Jong Un are leisurely strolling with the President Godfather and the disgusted and violated public yelling at them are being assaulted by their robotic, inhuman henchmen.

These policies, deployments and tactics were meant to deal with enemies trying to come here, but as recent history and Pogo has shown, the enemy, the preferred and considered enemy has been us all along.

Executive Carnage And Anarchy In 100 Plus Days: The President Embraces Dictators And Becomes A Lame Ass One-Sacking His FBI Director And Investigator And Establishes And Parades A Criminal Conspiracy In Plain Sight In The Oval Office

https://i2.wp.com/mediad.publicbroadcasting.net/p/shared/npr/styles/x_large/nprshared/201705/527773655.jpgThis guy here, this is the guy helping me destroy morality, trust and normalcy.

Washington D.C., U.S.A.

Looks like President Trump has gone full time gangster on the nation. And revealing some disturbing though not surprising characteristic traits.

Like recent reports that he gets an extra scoop of ice cream after dinner every day, like a petulant brat having a birthday.

Like that red button he installed on his desk in the oval office that brings him a Coke. Clearly put there to freak out invited domestic and international dignitaries, cabinet aides and most certainly ideologue wealthy individuals when he presses it. The stupid asshole.

Like telling Face The Nation his warped rationale that having a sore knee or a bad back is not as important than launching missles, which shows that he definitely knows what’s in the Expendable American Health Care Act.

Like congratulating recent victories and the treacherous exploits of despots of other nations, dictator scumbags like Al-Sisi in Egypt and Erdrogan in Turkey. No word yet if Trumpy called the victor of the election in France who beat that dirty money-bundled douchehag Marnie Le Pen though.

Like inviting that extrajudicial mass killing vigilante asshole Duerte from the Philippines, probably for advice that made AG Jefferson Sessions, that mutant herpes boil, bring back excessive sentences for drug offenses.

https://keithandthemovies.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/deliverance-boy1.jpg?w=320&h=157

Attorney General Jeff Sessions*

But mostly, and most defiantly egregious and boastful, the firing of the FBI director James Comey. The man leading the investigation into alleged Russian influence and interference in the democratic process of last year’s election in the final months. Surely, after the Figurehead and aspiring Dictator had been whining on his social networking account for months there was no link at all, in addition to denying ever meeting Putin and even advisors with ties to Russian oligarchs in his inner circle. And the perceived massive favor the former FBI director did to dismantle the campaign of Manifest Hillary in the final week before election day, it certainly looked as if Comey’s job was safe and Trump was eager to let the investigation roll on, with the assured, by Trump, outcome to go in his, Trump’s, favor. It would have been another thing to brag about incessantly, which where the President is an artisan.

But it was all too much. And like something out of the Godfather, recent reports have shown that since his pathetic inauguration, Trump has been putting the screws on the top law enforcer of the nation. Needling Comey to pledge his loyalty to him to end the investigation of the alleged and yet to be proven Russian ties. It’s like Trump thought that firing Gen. Flynn for his 45 large payday would be enough to let it go so he can run the country into the toilet, enact arbitrary laws and regressive policies, plunder the treasury and continue to run the Trump Organization at the same time.

It’s still amazing that Flynn got the ax. I can only imagine the amount of bullshit Trump told him when he assigned him to the NSA position, which did not need congressional approval. Like how safe the general thought he would be because of Trump’s debts of billions of dollars to his properties and, as recently noted by a sportswriter, golf courses, and most omnipresently, Trump’s familial advisers and the Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson’s ties to the obscenely wealthy in Mother Russia.

The problem, for the President, is that Comey, despite his flaws and his humiliating recent testimony at the last hearing involving this burgeoning scandal, is a true public servant and did not sell out to the lame ass aspiring dictator. So Trump fired him like the coward he is. And in the heinous way of manipulating the analysis of recently appointed deputy attorney Rod Rosenstein and using the blatantly illegal advice of A.G. Sessions who a day after his confirmation, recused himself from this case for speaking briefly with a Russian diplomat. Of course, being the glory hog and ignorant jerkoff that is his nature, the President/Godfather bragged to Lester Holt that he was going to can Comey anyway. With this national display of hubris and shit-talkin’, Trump did the same thing Flynn did to Vice President Pence when he lied about taking cash from a Russian TV network featuring Putin and undermined his defense of Comey’s firing by the advise of his top cabinet members by lying to him. (as well as members of congress and his doormat press secretary, forcing him to hide in the dark by some bushes). This amoral admission by Trump solidifies his impulsive power tripping firings of interim AG Sally Yates concerns of Russian compromising and DA Preet Bharara’s similar investigations and actual charges of Russian money laundering in NYC luxury apartments (although Preet might have actually been canned for delving into the misdeeds involving a nefarious pal of the fiendish President of Turkey currently held in a prison cell in Manhattan)

This of course led to an uproar in D.C. and the nation, (and probably the Deep State, but they will probably adapt if Trump remains in power), despite all the conflicting outcry from both political parties that have called for Comey’s removal in the past 8 months. But all that was put to rest when the following day, the subject and catalyst of the Comey investigation, Russian Diplomat Sergei Klysiak  was invited to the White House and Oval Office with the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov. And kept out the fourth estate from the meeting but permitted a Russian government owned media photographer to the oval office.

That is some gangsta shit.

And now it turns out that Trump, in a total display of boastful hypocrisy, revealed pertinent information and classified intelligence to the Sergeis about the Islamic State provided by staunch and perennially trusted ally Israel. And he followed this up with bilious aplomb that he had the right, as President, to do it. The same bilious aplomb when he said that the President never has a conflict of interest and how he can go out on the streets of New York, shoot a guy, get away with it, and still be adored.

That is something that is learned and ingrained indefinitely in a person. In a person that had relied on illicit mob money and manpower to build his empire as a young scion who inherited his dad’s wealth and empire, and who has relied on free flowing and unregulated Russian (and Chinese, Indian, and Arabian) money to grow his empire, market his name and spread his tower pestilence and fabricated worth and reputation around the world.

The aftermath of the Tuesday Night Sacrifice (one person doesn’t make a massacre), The Godfather/President has made a bunch of power moves.

First he gave an address to Liberty University, a college founded by evangelist, sinner and philander Jerry Falwell, a symbolic gesture to his only base, the wealthy hypocritical christian minority. Overlooking the fact that religion is the last refuge of a scoundrel, he enlightened the audience of recent graduates that we are a nation that worships god more than government, which jibes with his recent moronic and redundant executive order to promote free speech and religious liberty. And his recent EO on instituting a commission on voting integrity, based on his lunatic belief that he should have won the popular vote, but scholars and experts rightly claim is just a harbinger for more voter oppression.

But nothing can be more gangster than what happened on May 16, 2017 in the nation’s capital in the United States Of America, when the recently and grossly empowered President Recep Tayipp Erdogan came to the White House. Erdogan, with the aid of sycophants and patsies in his nation’s parliament and a very shady electoral process, took over control of all branches of government in his country. This has led to strife and unrest in his nation. It’s also reached out to Turkish citizens of this nation, as a small group showed up at the Turkish embassy in D.C. to protest Erdrogan’s presence there.

It did not go well at all. Unless you were part of Tayipp’s crack security team of violent oppressors.

These motherfucking lowlifes basically committed an attack on a sovereign country. America. These bags of dicks and shit in suits and possessing loaded guns oppressed the 1st amendment rights of those people, Kurdish people whom this nation is allied with in War On Terror. And they did this with total impunity and the salient fact that they have virtual permission since their leader has the respect and sympathy of our President.

These are the days, hours, minutes and seconds of reckoning of liberty and justice in this country and even though he refuses to acknowledge it, President/Godfather Don “Senza Valore” Trump, now that Comey’s predecessor and fellow New Yorker Robert Mueller has been tapped to assist in the independent investigation. Although the above video is reason enough to demand justice for the victims and spur solidarity among the hundreds of elected officials, the fact that the nation is at the mercy of a gangster is arguably worse.

This power hungry, power mad, stupid, greedy man in the White House has to go. And he has to go to prison like the gangster he kept company with and the dictator he aspires to be. No more, no less. There is no way to condone his behavior and his decisions. There are no more chances. This is over. President Trump truly has become the living embodiment of two words that don’t belong together.

There is not enough time left. He has to be removed before his disastrous budget, foreign and domestic policies and his dismantling of the constitution becomes official.

Mostly, he has to be charged with high crimes, that way if that sinner Vice President “Lying” Pence takes over, his presidency will be undermined and will not get any of his fundamentalist Christian acts effecting the economies and beliefs on the majority of citizens.

These acts of sedition will not and cannot stand. And cannot wait.

Lady Justice has been raped
Truth assassin
Rolls of red tape seal your lips
Now you’re done in
Their money tips her scales again
Make your deal
Just what is truth? I cannot tell
Cannot feel

The ultimate in vanity
Exploiting their supremacy
I can’t believe the things you say
I can’t believe
I can’t believe the price we pay
Nothing can save us

Justice is lost
Justice is raped
Justice is gone
Pulling your strings
Justice is done
Seeking no truth
Winning is all
Find it so grim
So true
So real

MTA Misbehavin’

The Lefferts Blvd. Stairway in 24/7 still life.

It’s almost the middle of May, about 6 weeks into the 2nd quarter of 2017, and the notorious tardiness renovating the Lefferts Blvd. station continues unabated and sadly unconcerned by the higher administrative brass and even the thousands of commuters who rely on this heavily populated hub. The stairway and the handicap accessible elevator looks complete but is still surrounded by machinery, giant orange thimbles and partition fencing obstructing the majority of the sidewalk. And it’s still causing massive bottlenecks of people exiting and entering the station.

010

But during my last visit, I happened to meet the curators of the year long fecal art exhibition at the turnstiles.

Apparently, in spite of recent attempts to clean the area, the pigeon populace has settled quite nicely and comfortably during this essential and glacial upgrade.

In fact, it looks like the MTA’s hired contractors built a coop

019

But, for the sake of empathy and pretension, I might doth protest too much. For this is just standard procedure.

The Worst Transit System In The Fucking Universe has been giving their customers a wild ride for the last couple of weeks, for there has been a plethora of coverage of the MTA’s atrocious construction and daily service delays that are verging on the tragicomic, frustrating, nerve-rattling, and surreal and a true test on human collective sanity.

For starters, an event, and it seems you can’t go a second without hearing one these days, was held for the 100th anniversary of the 7 line in Queens that was followed by an alarming report of the horrid condition of the elevated structure which hasn’t been painted for 3 decades that was shedding chunks and chips of old lead paint over the densely populated Roosevelt Avenue.

There was the grand unheralded opening of the elevator at Briarwood/Van Wyck on Queens Blvd, an achievement that would have got some praise if Mario’s son threw a craft brew festival surrounding it but it turns out that it took 3 years to build because of the need for super special mechanical parts. I surmise that it took a worldwide expedition to find these vaunted materials and the hiring of an adventuring Indiana Jones type for the amount of time expended.

The timing of it’s opening is quite impeccable considering a recent report on a massive percentage of inoperative elevators and escalators for the handicapped and elderly commuters, most recently spotlighted by the perpetually malfunctioning people mover by Court Square in Long Island City and the masking tape decorated paperweight collecting dust that is the subject of this posting.

These necessities being denied the state tax paying commuters barely competes with delays occurring almost daily from signal and electrical breakdowns, homeless spillover occupying cars, sick passengers, decaying infrastructure and ambiguous investigations throwing the city into chaos. The timing of these mass transit travesties mostly happening during the peak rush hours.

There was the day when a mysterious blackout at the 7th avenue station in Manhattan which serves the B, D & E that caused hours of delays and rerouting of almost every line. A similar incident happened recently at 36th street station in Brooklyn, causing reroutes of over 8 lines. One day the Q train had to be shut down for an investigation because a swastika was drawn on a seat. A big slab of concrete fell on an train that pulled into the Franklin Ave station on the 3 line in Crown Heights. Yesterday, a sick passenger shut down the city bound A and C lines.

There are the now weekly breakdowns and delays at Penn Station, notably the feces spewing ceiling geyser. And the 4 billion dollar luxury shopping mall atrocity Oculus couldn’t even hold the force of nature’s fluids during last weeks downpour, which had the semblance of the skies vomiting water. It should not be a surprise of that hub’s vulnerability since it’s designed like a dish rack.

https://i2.wp.com/rew-online.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/oculus-world-trade-center-1-938x535.jpghttps://www.giftswithstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Black-Blum-High-Dry-Grey-Dish-Rack-1.jpg

What can be done to stem this inexcusable, disgusting and just plain shitty service that the people of this city are paying for day after day, fare increase after fare increase.  Maybe 65 million dollars might be enough to keep the trains coming on time and make the essential upgrades for the systems antiquated signal system, perilous underground infrastructure and aging rails and tracks. But remember, Mario’s son Governor Cuomo inexplicably reallocated that funding to the city he so anecdotally talked about when he christened the Kosciusko Bridge with that cheesy Window Media Player 9 light show. That’s why it boggles the collective frustrated mind of the citizenry that Andy allocated some funding to redesigning 3 stations by Sunset Park and fitting it with free wifi, and the only improvements the transit system has seen is just cosmetic and goddamn wifi. It’s also bewildering with the amount of space sold to advertisers, even fully covering train cars to turnstiles and the billions of tourists that would populate Jupiter and Saturn that the money generated is still not enough to finance our transit system city and state wide. Where does all the fucking money go????

So it’s time to adapt then die to the further malaise of commuting on The Worst Fucking Transit System In The Universe. If there is a proper analogy for this, it’s like what commuters are experiencing is the Kübler-Ross theory, the 5 stages approaching death every early morning and evening in the past few weeks, but skipping grief and went straight to anger and is holding steady there. Let’s make sure Mario’s Son feels the wrath breathing down his wrinkled neck by remaining pissed and not bargain and succumb to fear and acceptance. And not to take any more shit.

Especially and specifically this shit.

Whose trains? OUR TRAINS!!!

 

Update: I profanely asked where does the money go from all the space that are sold to advertisements, and it seems to go into overtime for some certain dedicated workers. From an audit by a conservative think tank, the Empire Center of Public Policy, overtime pay cost the taxpayers close to a billion dollars. The most ludicrous was a track worker who actually earned more than the MTA commissioner at the time. Supposedly, these massive earnings, for technically a few hours of work, are justified because of the alleged efficiency it brings to the transit system with workers on the job. Somehow it might be more cost effective to hire people work those hours into later shifts and it would probably save a few hundred grand.

The Expendable American Health Care Act

https://d3i6fh83elv35t.cloudfront.net/newshour/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/RTS157NO-1024x659.jpgScum of the nation, having a hearty laugh at everyone’s expense, whose healthcare is covered by tax paying constituents.

Washington D.C., America

880 billion dollars. Take a look at that number and think about it. 880 fucking billion dollars these sadistic greedy huer dubiously pious motherfuckers want to cut from Medicaid. This on the heels of the monstrous and dystopian society producing tax cut for corporations hoarding money in other nations, on islands and in hotels and luxury condos. This on the prospect of the massive cuts, already having deleterious effects, on various fields of scientific research, caring for the elderly, schools and housing.

Is there no end to stem their bottomless satiety for personal wealth? These elected subhumans and their wealthy donors are basically financial cannibals.

This is the real death tax. The new final solution. The cost is your money then your life. This is the Expendable American Health Care Act. Affordability has now become a luxury item. Especially when it comes to the health and well being of you, the people. For these 217 fiends who voted yes to repeal and destroy the health care of millions, and actually held a big keg frat party to celebrate it, the aged, the less healthy and less earning of their constituents just has to pass away to keep the economy solvent for those who need an extra beach house, private plane or vast swaths of trendy city real estate for those impatient to wait for government exemptions.

Some or most of the 217 stupid morons who passed this death warrant did not even read the contents of the bill, akin to the passing of the unpatriotic Patriot Act passed months after 9/11, supposedly to stop terrorists from attacking on our soil again when all it has done was stifle protests and enabled the NSA to mine every citizen’s phone and digital communications for info. While the Patriot Act took a majority of our liberty away, the EAHCA act will take away your life if you are middle class, poor, disabled or old.

According to the demonic inside trader HHS chairman Tom Price, this cut will free up the individual states to control the costs and dispense the care. But with what money? And mostly what hospitals, since a lot of them are already going belly up and being replaced with ugly glass behemoth towers.

Executive Producer and Figurehead Trump yet again breaks another of his promises to his voters during his monkey hustle campaign last year. The mook from Queens actually turned around to those greedy sociopaths and pleaded for reaffirmation of his position.

“Can you believe it, I’m the President” and they all just laughed with him instead of at him. These excuses for people have no shame, no integrity and no intelligence. Just lots of money, power and influence.

And government funded and private health insurance. And nice palaces to dwell in when they retire.

And if this passes the Senate (signs are pointing that it won’t, but don’t get your hopes up, because hope is a luxury too), there won’t be any places for seniors to go in their late years except a nameless grave in some field. A field that will eventually be grounds for a new luxury tower with a 20 story banner of Ivanka Trump pasted on the side and occupied with the money of the progeny of the 217 elected gangsters in Congress.

Left to right then left to right; generic photo of health hazardous water fountains, a pile of discarded textbooks from a secondary school in Manhattan, the student journalists at Flushing High and their snowflake asshole dictator principal.

To be a kid going to school today is quite an adventure. While most will have to deal with fascist peer pressure, sadistic bullies and all their studies centering on obtuse exams provided by CommonCore standards, now they have to deal with those assigned for their health and well-being mucking up their educational process and progress into adulthood and bringing their parents along with an additional thing to worry about to add to the terminal stasis of struggling with the cost of living in the 5 boroughs of NYC.

A few short months after an public/intermediate school in Manhattan was found to have enormous levels of lead in the water coming out of it’s shower pipes exceeding the scandalous contamination in Flint, Michigan, recent reports by the DOE has shown that one out of  20 of the faucets in 80% of the city schools borough wide, including drinking fountains and taps from cafeteria kitchens, have similar and extra dangerous amounts in their plumbing. One particular school in Crown Heights, PS 289 had a water fountain by one classroom that had lead levels of 15 ppb (parts per billion), 1.7 more than the most found in Flint, back in December 2016, which parents of students at the school were only notified of just a few weeks ago. Even the recently installed Pre-K schools across the boroughs have shown lead contamination in their drinking fountains.

The response by officials have been dismissive and encouraging, or dismissively encouraging as a health official quoted that there isn’t much of a risk:

An official with the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene downplayed any dangers posed by the Room 222 fountain.

“These testing results don’t reflect a steady state or result,” said Dr. Oxiris Barbot, the agency’s first deputy commissioner.

“If there was a true risk here, we would have seen it already,” she said.

As is habit under the hand of Mayor De Faustio and his cabinet, this devastating health concern is being handled with a contradictory but reassuring sounding response:

City officials found the high lead levels in 10,633 samples taken from 1,278 public school buildings, representing 8% of 132,276 samples taken.

But the amounts revealed in the long-awaited test results did not indicate potential harm to students, schools Deputy Chancellor Elizabeth Rose said.

“Families should rest assured that water in schools is safe for students and staff to drink,” Rose said. “The number of elevations are minimal and we take immediate action to remediate all fixtures.”

After this bland assurance from Ms. Rose, parents of students are advised to equip their kids with thermoses (more stuff to carry to school), bottles of poland spring or from of the corporate soda companies (more money to spend), or maybe Brita filters of their own. In the meantime, costs to refurbish or replace these tainted pipes and demands by concerned borough hosts presidents to provide bottle water to those schools affected will probably encroach double digit millions.

As if the risks of drinking tainted water without being informed by those responsible for their welfare during the day is not tense enough, now the kids will have to struggle and literally mine in garbage for books and hide them from demented overseers to be traditionally taught. Because at a high school in Manhattan, the Life Sciences Secondary School, Principal Kim Swanson and Assistant Principal Derek Premo have made the supply-side cost-cutting decision to get rid of all the textbooks, primers and even classic literature to make way for the supposed dominance of technology replacing paper and the fact that they personally don’t like books.

Swanson and Premo, who took the helm of the 616-student joint middle and high school in 2015, sent aides from classroom to classroom in November to collect the books. Workers also emptied book storage closets. Hundreds of tomes were tossed over the Thanksgiving break.

“They made an announcement that they were getting rid of the books because they were antiquated and outdated, and we should be using new technology,” a teacher said. “I hid some of my books to prevent them being taken.”

“We’re not allowed to use books,” said a second staffer, who advised struggling students to “go downstairs, grab a book from the pile, and take them home — because they’re just going to throw them out.”

These people were hired in executive positions to run a facility for teaching and learning. Apparently, in their zeal to waste taxpayer funded money to destroy these books, the school still doesn’t have enough computers to go around and learning and grade averages have regressed.

To complete the city’s DOE malfeasance hat trick of debilitating the youth of today, there is the pervasive spread of obstructing journalism and manufacturing consent by higher echelons. Flushing High School’s Principal Tyee Chin ordered to kill the publication of these aspiring student journalists, the Flushing Advocate, because of what he perceived was negative criticism of the teachers under him and being slighted by not having his tyrannical face on the cover of the issue.

Tyee Chin has refused to publish the third issue of the fledgling Flushing Advocate, calling everything in it and a prior issue “negative and disparaging.”

I will not approve this edition,” Chin declared in an e-mail.

Chin cited a feature that infuriated him: “What Makes a Good Teacher?” which quotes multiple students.

One sophomore commented, “Good teachers help you struggle less and help you get motivated, but to be honest, Flushing High School lacks in those kinds of teachers. Out of my 8 classes, only 3 of my teachers really care.”

Chin was also displeased by the placement of his “Principal’s Corner — a note from Mr. Chin” on Page 4 in the last issue, a student said. “He’s like ‘Give me the front cover’ . . . He got really angry about that.”

The behavior of this vain snowflake official comes hot on the heels of recent events involving Mayor De Faustio’s disturbing efforts to control the narrative in his responses and non-responses to reporters at press conferences and public appearances, and somewhat similar to the corporate news media’s decisions to slant reporting to their target demographic ideologies.

But mostly, this gives the impression that our city schools are trying to condition the kids for the rough times ahead and make them adjusted to squalid conditions, unskilled labor, and shoddy, uninformative reporting. Mostly it’s too disengage them from the desire and the right to be informed.

These are offenses that should warrant punitive actions like fines, suspensions and in the case of all three, the firing of these people responsible for the welfare of toddlers, kids and young adults during the working hours of their parents. Which again leads to the question of the person assigned to this duty…

Where in the frickin’ city is School Chancellor Carmen Farina?

Why here she is, materializing to decree that all schools, including 80% of those with excessive lead toxicity amounts in the water, those that threw thousands of books into the garbage and the one where journalistic integrity and reporting is controlled by one vain prick, have one bathroom for transgender students.

NY Daily News: Every NYC school must provide a single-stall bathroom for students with gender identity concerns

Every city school must arrange for at least one designated single-stall restroom to protect students with medical issues or gender concerns, the schools chancellor said Tuesday.

The designated bathrooms will provide an additional safe space for the students and will not require special permission or medical proof to be used, according to Chancellor Carmen Fariña and the city Department of Education. All school buildings will have single-stalls installed for students by January 2018, Fariña vowed.

To reach that goal, school officials will team up with custodial staffers and principals at each school to identify an existing single-stall bathroom in their building that can be converted for student use, officials said.

This woman is an idiot. What are really the qualifications for those kids to be permitted to use them. And how does transgender apply to kids anyway? Back in the day, they used to be called tomboys or tomgirls (I think). When I heard this applied to kids, I thought parents were approving sex altering operations for their prepubescent offspring.

And the costs to determine where to install these “safe spaces” and deciding who will use them will be astronomical. There’s also the prospect that this will not stop bullying, for bigoted kids will just wait for them by these new facilities to verbally or physically beat them up instead of in the required bathrooms. Clearly this comes from the orders from the corrupt Mayor De Faustio and the usual inclination of neoliberals to follow the political activist trend of the moment.

This self-satisfying nonsense comes at the expense of suffering students everywhere, at least the ones who yearn to learn and be truly independent. Both progressive and conservative. Instead, this city and the ones that legislate it would rather have the kids dumb as shit and uninformed. That’s a good way to keep the permanent government system thriving by the next generation of voters, whose minds are warped by lead poisoning, to choose stupidly or lazily not show up on election day at all.

And Now Another Word From Our Sponsors…

First Daughter Ivanka Trump visited Berlin's Holocaust memorial (above) during her first international trip as an official adviser to her father, who also delivered remarks at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum's annual Days of Remembrance event Tuesday.

First, whatever designer shades and coat presidential adviser/first daughter lady is wearing here as she so tenderly caresses a wall. This picture was taken at a holocaust center the Holocaust Museum in Berlin last week and may have been the most blatant glamorous vogueing ever by a (virtual) dignitary to a memorial site.

This was from a few months ago at the Nike flagship store on 57th street in Midtown Manhattan during the execution of Figurehead EP Trump’s travel ban of citizens from selective middle east nations. Nike got all their celebrity sports figures to pose emphatically somber to exploit the situation to sell sneakers. All of their photos were color manipulated so they all look like one united race to promote equality in solidarity with those victimized by the Trump’s unconstitutional policies and also in response to a lot of rampant bigoted attacks against Blacks, Hispanics, Middle Eastern, and Indian people at the time.

Nice sentiment Nike, maybe you can apply this universal sentiment to all those poor indigent people which includes children that stitches all those 100 to 500 dollar sneakers in penitentiary sweatshops in impoverished and economically polarized nations that you run and that all your endorsers wear professionally and rabid fans wait on lines for hours for. Maybe all those millionaire athletes that are so concerned in those racially hued photos might even want to donate some money and time to all those who give their feet comfort playing games in their chosen professions…

…I tell you it ain’t likely…
