Mayor De Blasio Resorts To Cheap Populism On His Electioneering Subway Rides, Gets Creative Eradicating The Homeless Crisis On His Commute And Holding Up The Train At The Expense Of The Constituency

The mayor allows the press he has contempt for to bask in his glory ride.

De Blasio Campaign Headquarters, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn, N.Y.

As the worst fucking transit system in the universe continues to break and fail every other day, which is a slight improvement from every hour in every part of the boroughs, decisive action is being taken by the elected and half universally loathed leaders of the state that runs it, the city that owns and operates it and the officials appointed to come up with ideas to make the system run efficiently (fuck that genius search already, Andy).

So “Mario’s son” Governor Cuomo finally gets the twist tied holding gears rolling to fix the decrepit transit system while continuing to avoid it since his New Years Rocking Eve at the Second Ave. line uptown by hiring former MTA chairman and mayoral candidate Joe Lotha to dispense feeble self-criticism and an actual plan and budget to fix the shitshow subway.

Shockingly, Lotha delivered the goods on schedule with the new plan and budget. It’s very wide-ranging and it will cost about 800 million dollars. It goes from crucial infrastructure upgrades especially the signal system, speeding up service and preventing delays to addressing obnoxious behavior and foul habits of the commuters themselves. Well at least it’s something and did not require a genius to think it up (again kill that genius grant, Andy, these assholes in their twenties don’t really know shit but design addictive app video games). It just needs to be funded equitably by the state and the city.

Hold on and not so says Mayor de Blasio, for he has refused to pony up the city’s share of the responsibility and operations because of his claims that the state is hoarding and has reallocated the majority of loot in the MTA’s coffers.

So the Mayor of the city where the subway runs (somewhat) will not fund it.

Leave it to this mayor to be the brazen, vindictive and willful hypocrite. Apparently after spending his term commuting with an entourage of SUV’s going borough to borough every morning for some stupid workout routine and for a while utilizing a chopper, he suddenly now empathizes with the disgruntled millions who depend on the trains to go to and from work every day. His demands for the state’s accounting of it’s funding flies in the face of his own money hoarding for the BQX line which he is holding 2.5 billion out for, his money spending for the pathetic and underserved ferry boat line, and his money grubbing to pay his lawyers for his defense in the aborted federal pay to play corruption case against him.

During the week of his underground urban exploring, a lot of arrangements were made to give a scintilla of legitimacy for his latest voter pandering and self-righteous and serving indignation. And also to test out his newfound reactionary belief in the widespread and growing homeless crisis, for there was an order from 1 Police Plaza to the transit squad to remove the derelicts from the platforms of 2 stations, the 4th avenue and Jay/Metrotech, where De Faustio and the press junket were stopping by heading to his campaign headquarters in downtown goddamn Brooklyn.

De Faustio and his dweeb spokesman Eric “Spaz” Phillips were incensed at such an accusation made by the NY Post, but mostly from the leaks from the NYPD about this uncouth demand to erase the overwhelming new wave of poverty from the views of reporters.

This quote really sticks out and leaves a stench worse than any derelict stinking up an entire subway car:

“I haven’t seen any directive given and if it was given it shouldn’t have been,” the mayor told reporters on Wednesday afternoon. “I ride the subways all the time, there’s no sweeps. So, look, I know you guys like to focus on things like this, if someone’s doing it because they have an axe to grind politically, God bless them, but that’s not the policy. The policy is not to do sweeps, I get on the subway whatever is happening on the subway I’m gonna experience it with everyone else.”

“I ride the subways all the time” he said. This corrupt mayor thinks riding the subway for 3 days, and 2 other times before that, the first time when prompted by primary opponent Sal Albanese, defines the words “all the time”. Was it only a short time ago when such optical acts was deemed by the Blaz as “cheap symbolism”?

This outlandish claim and repulsive attempt at commuter empathy was matched by his yeoman messenger by practically challenging the press’s and the NYPD leakers expose saying “Zero evidence. Evidence of the opposite, in fact.”

As for the Blaz and the Spazz’s denials of the existence of such cruel and arbitrary treatment of the ignored and reviled indigent subterranean dwellers, they just got shot down in flames.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/mayor_subway_homeless_146982202.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&strip=all

That’s an order and evidence right there. But the dynamic dunces got apoplectic, as scoundrels do when they get caught. Eric engaged in some banter with a reporter over his zero evidence theory and got his pube bearded face red.

Ghost cops, Eric?

Phillips gets fed his lunch. As for the confirmed sweep, is this what De Faustio was referring to when he suggested that officers get creative handling the homeless population?

The mayor response to the damning order, and damning to his credibility as a progressive politician, was defiantly petulant and quite dismaying:

I don’t care my friend, because it does not matter.” ​​

“​Read my lips: I don’t care. It’s an irrelevancy,” ​the mayor added.

This is the attitude by a person that can only be manifested by the result of a wholesale lack of interest and general cynicism in government. Most of all, the result of low voter turnout and the favoritism of weak and financially compromised candidates by political parties.

And lastly, a local news media that refuses to cover civic issues and currently this mayoral race, guaranteeing De Faustio a perceived lock on the mayoralty.

Speaking of which, this sudden activism and advocacy by Mayor Big Slow for the worst fucking transit system in the universe smacks of the same electioneering stunt he pulled with his ruse protesting and getting himself arrested at LIC Hospital in Brooklyn around this time 4 years ago to vainly bring attention to it’s shutting down for developers. How did that work out?

Saying that he doesn’t care, with a tone more like don’t give a fuck, could be the most honest thing he has said his entire term. He certainly didn’t give a fuck the other day when the R train the mayor was on was delayed over an alleged “police investigation”.

If there is a bright side to this wretched abuse of services and the office of the mayor (again), is that it is starting to reverberate amongst the citizenry. People are becoming more vocal and furious and are taking dead aim at what passes for leadership in this town.

And Mario’s son Governor Cuomo is not exempt either, since he and his toadies on the MTA board decided to spend some millions on and ad campaign trashing the mayor for his insolence and hundred millions more on lame bridge light shows.

But De Faustio is the villain here this time, for he is trying to get another free unblemished ride back to city hall by continuing his bogus feud with Andy who at the moment is the most despised person in the state for now. And of course a corporate neutered local news media. The thing is, just by his obnoxious and Trump like reactions and accusations for the revealing of this homeless sweep order, he made have screwed himself and being the arrogant jerk, like Trump again, he doesn’t even know it yet or even acknowledge it. The last time someone was this sure was “Manifest” Hillary Clinton, and look how that worked out.

Enjoy your commute, De Faustio, teflon mayor. In fact, just run your campaign office on the rails til it’s off the rails (pun intended), that way all the blight will be washed away, the bums will be displaced (again), fires will be extinguished, rain water will be contained and the trains will assuredly run efficiently and effectively. And most of all, you will officially gain credibility as an everyday rider.

Which will be more than your credibility as a competent and dutiful mayor.

 

Vision Zero Thought Or Consideration @ Metropolitan Ave. And 71st Ave.

262
Find the impurity on the road. Winner gets a free lollypop.

North Forest Park, Queens, N.Y.

Welcome to Metropolitan Ave.. This is a tight yet standard two way road, a major 2 borough artery that spans from eastern Queens to the end of Brooklyn. The intersection crosses with 71st Ave., which goes to Queens Blvd to the north and ends at Forest Park to the south. It’s a busy traffic area but not typically hectic or hazardous.

Until now. Under the jurisdiction of Mayor De Faustio’s Vision Zero program, the DOT one day observed somehow that a lot of drivers traverse the 3 block path to get to Union Turnpike east and decided to cut the road in half to allow uninterrupted turns.

265271

Looks weird. And hazardous. Note the parked vehicles slightly above a cars length away.

272

Now look at it from the east side and it truly shows how stupid it is. First off, there is not even a directional signal light to turn, which would make sense and justify this path. Now if you notice the car on the north side, there is a turning lane going the south also, it’s where people used to park. Now the most important thing about this idiotic design is that the cars heading east in the middle have to turn sharp right to avoid going the wrong direction and then merge left again.

I don’t know when this was repainted but I have seen similar road designs in the city but at least there was an extra lane of traffic to work with. Metropolitan just has one lane. This intersection is going to infuriate drivers if it’s not doing it already and it’s an accident waiting to happen.

266

Look at the paint on the lines, it’s already fading out. Showing that no one can steer and avoid breaching the now other side of the road. Not only is this asinine but it has the potential of a ticket trap. It’s also worrisome for bikers that have to go all the way to the curb to give enough space for passing drivers. This is not safe. This is stupid. I wonder if anyone asked for this. But when it comes to dispensing policy and plans for neighborhoods, especially in Queens, the hacks in city hall has a long record of not telling anyone, from shitty unhelpful road designs like this, to unnecessary bike lanes and mental patients and recidivist criminals they put in homeless shelters.

For this to return to what it was, an uninterrupted two way street, someone of course has to get killed. But lately, even that hasn’t worked considering the amount of hit and runs and pedestrian crossing accidents borough wide.

Vision Zero? More like Vision Tunnel.

 

Executive Carnage/Sabotage: Donald Trump Jr. Made A Huge Mistake And Clears The Air About Everything About His Dad’s, Putin And His Oligarch Peers And The Deep State’s Motives

https://i2.wp.com/media2.foxnews.com/BrightCove/694940094001/2016/05/04/694940094001_4878770992001_ca97a64e-0ada-4a1b-9e94-50f2b22dbe00.jpg

 

Well, Well, Well, it looks like the proverbial smoking gun became the proverbial mushroom cloud around the machinations and the elevation of the electoral winner of once candidate and current president, Figurehead Donald J. Chump. No, Trump. Everybody knows his name, there is not a need to goof on his name with a simple rhyme or even make a Fraudian slip getting it wrong. And it’s all thanks to his hapless idiot son, Donald Trump, Jr..

On the cusp of the primary victory trouncing irrelevant opponents and with the presence of secret service in the homebase namesake tower of his father and grandfather, Junior received a meesage from an old friend in the public relations field of the entertainment industry, one Rob Goldstone regarding salacious and incriminating dealings about his dad’s opponent at the time, “Manifest” Hillary R. Clinton, with Russia while she was secretary of state. From the email correspondence with Junior, Mr. Goldstone procured what he called “high level sensitive intelligence” from a Russian real estate oligarch, Aras Agalarov, whose son Emin is a pop star that his agency represents whose ties to the current president stems from his purchase of the 2012 Miss Universe pageant that was held in his homeland.

Goldstone further detailed on the email correspondence, a very vulnerable venue to dispense high level intelligence, that it was part of what he proclaimed was Russia’s support for the then candidate. He also states that he will arrange a meeting with a crown prosecutor high powered attorney from the declared enemy nation with ties to Agalarov that will give them the damning details about Hillary.

Junior responds to this by writing, “If it’s what you say it is, I love it!”. He doesn’t inform the feds, or even his dad (until later apparently), he writes “I love it!”

Junior made a h(y)uge mistake.

And made another one when to get the jump on a long article about the email exchange by the New York Times, probably sensing how discussing trading foreign intelligence to destroy an opponent and the democratic process in an election would lead experts and regular people to assume that treason was committed to empower his father.

H(y)uge mistake. Because all it did was expose the nefarious deeds and essential players involved, mostly by referring to the presence of campaign chief Paul Manafort and current advisor and de facto State Secretary and young ward Jared Kushner along with the porcine P.R. man who set up the fete. Shortly after this feeble attempt at transparency, it turned out that the lawyer who showed up as Junior claimed was nothing sinister like election tampering and voter manipulation but inquires about adoptions and the Magnitsky Act, Natalia Veselnitskaya is an influential and powerful lawyer who represented banks that lent to the Trump’s and Kushner’s real estate holdings, the Kremlin and the FSB spy agency and money laundering oligarchs. The meeting was also presided by Rinat Akhmetshin, a former Russian spy and career Ameircan lobbyist, whose expertise runs the gamut from corporate hacking of rival energy companies to media manipulation through social media, which includes doing damage to the legacy of one Sergei Magnitsky of the act Natalia wanted dismantled. Providing the translation for the visitors was Anatoli Samochornov who did translator work for Natalia’s court hearings involving her money laundering clients and a second translator at the meeting Irakly Kaveladze, who was involved in, guess, a money laundering scheme to move Russian billions through American banks involving shell companies.

Donald Junior really was totally out of his element here with this coterie of Russian players of dark espionage, dark web, persuasion and sophisticated global thievery. D.J. was so gung ho to impress his dad that he absolutely did not bother to vet the individuals involved or even their true intentions. Which going by the chicanery of all the 5 Russian players so far is all about lifting sanctions against their homeland, their ruler Putin, and all of the Russian corporations they have clear ties to. Or even realize that the guy who summoned this dispicable group, employed a British spy who dug dirt on his pop, which turned out to be the haphazard Steele dossier published by Buzzfeed.

Now Junior’s stupid decision to release the transcript of the meeting set up not only exposes his willingness to deal with a foreign state to taint the presidential election and Senior’s opponent, but it shows that he wanted to be a bigger player in the campaign as much as his bro-in-law Jared was, who happened to own a major new york publication at the time with the New York Observer (now Observer), to what is now a disastrous result. It immediately brought to mind the strenuous, needy and perpetually flawed character from the cult classic TV show “Arrested Development”, Gob Bluth, a bozo who constantly craved the attention and respect of his father, imprisoned and fugitive real estate tycoon George Bluth, who Donald Jr. bears an almost uncanny resemblance to.

No not this picture.

Yeah, this is the one, separated or misplaced at birth.

Thanks to D.J.’s bumbling, there can no longer be a shadow of a doubt of the intentions of everyone involved in the last few years of the Trump reign of executive carnage:

From Putin and The Russian oligarchs, the lifting of sanctions derived from the imprisonment and death of a lawyer investigating the illegal gains and transferring of billions of dollars, so they can make and launder more through international real estate, whose holdings include the luxury dwellings in many of Figurehead Trump’s namesake towers.

That Wikileaks may have been tricked with getting Hillary’s revelatory and incriminating emails to influence and win HER primary, that the source, Glucifer 2.0 may have been tied to Russian spies and the 400 fat kid that Trump mentioned during inquiries about this may be Rob Goldstone.

From the Republican establishment of greedy conservative and hypocritical christians, who rode the Trump train to the white house so they can pass their heinous society and government killing legislation to enrich themselves and their donors.

And of course the President himself, who is only there to enhance and promote his name and brand. Who did it by all means necessary too. From trashing his opponents to even embracing Bernie Sanders platform to get elected, and it worked like a charm. This also shows that he is still running his businesses while holding government office, since the only thing he’s done is sign preposterous and nonbinding executive orders, looks befuddled and detached addressing the press and at functions, and has profited immensely in just a half year’s time.

But it’s not working out like it was planned after all.

Because Congress cannot get anything done despite the Republicans having the Senate and the House. The health care repealed failed. The travel ban is still failing. They can’t get their monstrous budget passed. They are more reviled than ever before. And the voting public are getting hip to single payer health care and party primary elections to oust them.

And Figurehead Trump is getting aggravated for he could have the sense that he got played and exploited by the Republican D.C. establishment, if going by his recent regret of hiring Jeff Sessions for Attorney General. Trump actually thought that the position was meant to defend him only.  I guess it’s cheaper to have your own personal A.G. than hiring a high powered firm in civilian life.

He is also feeling the walls closing in, maybe literally since he is starting to get antsy at the Mueller Commission’s decision to focus on his business dealings with Russia than on the election because of all the notorious characters in the room and the majority of his plutocabinet’s ties to the perceived enemy nation. He is also assembling a bevy of lawyers and  planning to preemptively give himself and his kin presidential pardons as if he is speculating criminal charges. Surprising since he was so certain about how the president cannot have a conflict of interest.

For the past 6 months, the president has been strutting around abusing his position when he wasn’t on his cellphone typing stupid opinions like he owned the country. Recent behavior exhibited by the now confirmed Figurehead showed his dictatorial leanings, unchecked ignorance and unbridled petulance. Even when the LPGA U.S. open was held at his golf course in New Jersey, he was watching it in a giant clubhouse fortress and resembling Kim Jong Un watching his military dance for him when he was clapping for the winner at the end. The North Korean analogy gets even better since 10 of the top 15 ranked finalists including the winner were all South Korean.

Trump has become the emperor with no clothes. Actually, all his life he has been that, shamelessly walking around with his dick flopping and dangling with festering puss oozing herpes sores, as his empire and personal wealth grew and grew with the aid of government tax breaks and organized crime.

And now it looks like the proverbial chickens have come home to roost, thanks to his eldest and dumbest progeny, who to save face for maybe the final time remarked that his son was a high-quality person as if he was a key of uncut cocaine.

This real life/real time political tragicomedy wrote itself and like most programs after a while, has become stale and predictable. The collusion committed by the Trump 2016 campaign was wretched and egregious, but mild compared to the willful tolerance of the Republican Party who continued to back him and are now in power and squandering it. It’s even led to the continued immorality of the Democrat party establishment who are riding on the gross incompetence and existence of Figurehead Trump to still manipulate their voter base. And judging by their recent attempts to capture vacant seats with the corporation palatable picks, are still failing. The White House and the Deep State has gotten so reprehensible and power mad that even the government ethics commissioner Walter Shaub couldn’t take it anymore and felt his position had become unjustified and up and quit, a decision wrought with the symbolism and unofficially the fact that actual ethics or even the concept of them no longer exists in elected office or maybe society as a whole.

And now bipartisanship has arrived in D.C. as both parties in the Senate has revived the sanctions against Trump’s pal Putin’s Russia, daring the Figurehead to veto it and look like a treasonous patsy and hearings have been scheduled for the hosts of that notorious sitdown on the 25th floor of 725 5th avenue.

And it’s all because of Donald Trump Jr.. Who in two strokes of his cellphone in the span of a year did what the legendary Gob Bluth did and said in every episode of his famed sitcom…

He made a huge mistake. Or in Trumpspeak, a hyuge mistake.

For this, the nation might thank him one day for the dismantling of decades of entrenched government corruption. Let’s thank him now for making his dad sweat harder in the past week and coming months.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Bad Days 27: Wild In The Streets- Unpleasant Nostalgia Of The Bad Old Days As Two Men Duke It Out Uptown, A Man Gets Stabbed To Death During Breakfast, And More Slashings, Shootings, Holdups, Rapes and Rape Attempts, And The Continued Usage Of Citibikes For Crimes.

Who needs those idiots Mayweather and McGregor? We got the NBD bout of the week.

Manhattan

On the Upper West Side at 6:45 a.m., a street hassle involving two men arguing over traffic protocol escalated when the pedestrian, distracted by talking on his phone, banged on the drivers window, leading to the driver taking out a machete from his truck and swinging and throwing it at the pedestrian and missing him, followed by the pedestrian throwing garbage cans at the driver and ended with the two exchanging blows and flexing.

In Times Square, a man singing aloud and walking with his friend was slashed in the face by a man who thought his friend was disrespected when the victim blew him off.

In Midtown, a homeless man threw a brick at a window of a bar that inspired the hangout of that horrendous show “How I Met Your Mother?” and the reprehensible Bro, Brah and Broheim culture and craze. That’s the show with Doogie Howser ,the exhibitionist from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and the girl who stuck her flute up her pussy at band camp.

In Stuyvesant Town at the First Avenue train station, a man molested a woman by pelvically grinding on her.

You Sexy Motherfucker

In the East Village, a man broke into a church and burglarized it.

Brooklyn

In Brighton Beach at 6:10 a.m., a man sitting on a crate eating a bagel in front of a deli is confronted by a man who proceeds to conspicuously take out a knife, bends down to say something to the man sitting and stabs him once in the mid-section. The victim walks backwards away from his attacker and heads toward a cab that pulled over, then collapses. He is taken to a hospital where he died from his wound. The killer was known to pick fights with people in the vicinity.

In Canarsie, a 70 year old woman was found dead in her house, her legs bound in an electrical cord. Her adopted son is suspected in the murder.

Also in Crown Heights, a man chasing and shooting at other men on the street when he ran into undercover cops patrolling the area who then shot him when he refused to drop his weapon after he was still shooting for his targets.

And yet again in Crown Heights, the same wimp that tried to rape 2 women and got his ass kicked, attempted to rape another two women and got his ass kicked again.

In Prospect Heights-Lefferts Gardens, a woman broke a window in her apartment and tried to kill herself.

In Fort Greene, a burglar broke into an apartment building and ripped a laundry card machine from it’s base, stole the money inside it and rode away on a Citibike. Two men wearing bandannas like in the old west robbed a man of his backpack at knifepoint at a bus stop. A cabdriver drove away with a woman’s purse after she naively trusted him with it when she wanted to make a quick stop to the nearest market.

The Worst Fucking Transit System In The Universe

On Monday morning, a track fire ignited in the A train express tunnel by the 145th street station in Harlem, leading to a mass evacuation causing a shutdown of 4 lines which led to a massive overcrowding on the 1 train blocks away on Broadway for it was the only line accessible for transit service.

Interim Commissioner Joe Lotha’s first response to the latest MTA atrocity exhibition; “We are not very good right now”. His proactive response and solution. “Don’t eat on the trains.” No wonder he lost to De Faustio.

During the Friday morning rush, the Q train derailed by the Brighton Beach station resulting in delays on the line for the entire day.

And in the making the same mistake and expecting different result dept., the worst fucking and criminally undermined for decades transit system in the universe had a work train derail by the West 8th street station and after doing some repairs it derailed again 2 hours later when they tried to run it. It was revealed that the previous day that the car was faulty when it was operated at a railyard in Coney Island.

This week has been crushingly and oppressively humid. It can’t be hotter than July after this last week and a half. On that note, here’s Stevie Wonder with the proper sentiment.

And the inspiration of today’s post title.

New Bad Days 26: Christian Woman Gang-raped Shortly After Leaving Church And Blocks From Subway In Jamaica, 2 Women Shot Over Gangsta Shit And 2 Girls Mugged Selling Cookies In Brooklyn, And 2 Toddlers Determined Beaten To Death After A Misdiagnosis By Their Mother’s Boyfriend.

Dirty Beaver Rd. in Jamaica, Queens

Queens

In South Jamaica in the Dirty Southeast, a 50 year old woman walking to the subway from her Parish on Beaver Rd. got held up and robbed of her money by two men with pistols, who then were joined by 2 other young men who demanded she take off her clothes in the middle of the street in broad daylight and proceeded to gang rape her and forced her to perform oral sex on them. She wound up running back to the church half naked carrying her clothes.

The gruesome incident could have ended a lot worse if it weren’t for the stupidity of the rapists. The victim was savvy enough to lie about having HIV (which must have felt horrible being a christian to break a commandment) so one of the idiots would go to the nearest bodega to buy a rubber which probably had a camera filming the dumb fuck. All of them couldn’t help themselves from bragging about their criminal conquest at the group home were they were dwelling, leading concerned staffers to turn them in. And they called the victim dumb.

This story immediately brings up the infamous and costly Central Park jogger rape from almost 30 years ago. Except there is absolutely no mistake about this case, as 3 so far have been caught. Now everyone’s city tax dollars can go to keeping these recidivist dicks incarcerated instead of fucking around in a glorified foster home and lurking in the streets trying to get a bit of the old ultraviolence.

In Bed-Stuy,  two mothers in their twenties were shot and killed at a courtyard in a hail of rapid gunfire from unknown assailants at 9:30 p.m.. The bullets were intended for rival gang members in the surrounding housing complexes. One of the victims 3 year old daughter is being comforted from knowing of her mother’s untimely and gruesome death. Something the killers and their targets should think about but probably won’t.

In East New York, 2 men robbed the same deli twice in 24 hours. The clerk stated that he was never robbed before.

At the 83rd Precinct NYPD station in Bushwick at 11:15 a.m., a man under processing tried to steal an officer’s gun. At his sentencing date in court, the judge hearing his case, Loren Baily-Schiffman, decided to release him without bail. The perp has confirmed mental health problems. Is this how the city plans to keep the jail population low so that they can close Rikers Island?

At a bar in Williamsburg, a woman got suckerpunched in the face from a man whose advances she turned down.

Also in Williamsburg at the Peter Luger Restaurant, a woman attacked another woman by biting her over the strife and chaos going on in Venezuela.

In Fox Hills, 2 little 4 year old girls and a 25 year old woman were hit by a car as the driver failed to yield.

This was the biggest new bad days compiled so far, and this is a week from the murder of career public servant Officer Miostosis Familia. Interpret this anyway you want to readers, because it’s not looking peachy at all. A lot of people out there are losing their moral sense or refuse to have one. A lot of other people are strapped for cash or just want more of it. A lot of people clearly don’t give a shit, which is easy because the elected officials are getting away with robbery (see moral sense). And a lot of people are just going nuts or have been all their lives.

The blackout of 1977 in this city was 40 years ago. Although there was one recently in the Upper West Side that messed up a lot of people’s routines and businesses, the blackout of today is of ethics and justice, if Sheldon Silver’s getting off and De Faustio’s daily display of hubris and hypocrisy serves as a distressing sign.

 

Senior Editor And Daughter Of The Owners/Publishers Of The Washington Post Throws Fucking Obscene Lavish Party In The Hamptons.

https://hollywoodonthepotomac.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/The-Trumps-with-Lally-Weymouth-pre-dinner.jpgHello, Lally Weymouth. By herself and with Figurehead Donald Trump and his wife Melania in 2011. Old friends.

 

 

Last Saturday, the divided and distracted people of this nation had officially become a sideshow when this event happened in Southhampton, Long Island, N.Y.

On that day, this country had become another interdimensional colony from another realm when this party collective of widely diverse supposed ideological differences optically feuding with each other came together for the hostesses pre-birthday and upcoming movie release party of an upcoming potentially Oscar regaled Steven Spielberg film.

From the White House, super senior advisors to the President: Sort Of Secretary of State Jared Kushner and First Daughter/Lady and now seat filling de facto President Ivanka Trump, Chief Counselor, Goebbels reincarnate and bullshit artist Kellyanne Conway, unofficial Plutocabinet member Carl Icahn and deputy national security advisor Dina Powell. Senator and member of the new “resistance” Charles “Chucklenuts” Schumer . Billionaires and financiers for the partisan political establishment, Charles Koch for the right and George Soros for the left. NYPD commissioners and bitter rivals William “broken windows” Bratton and Ray “stop and frisk” Kelly. And various big name journos for the Washington Post, tasked with keeping democracy dying in darkness.

In these times of utter confusion, cynicism and abject cruelty among the citizenry, earlier revered by the inaugurated Trump as you, the people, this party cannot be more untimely, tone-deaf, insensitive and offensive. The Washington Post has been railing against the antics and widespread corrupt connections of Figurehead Trump for the past year and a half with such zeal that that at times most of their reports had to be corrected for missing major facts, contributing to Trump’s and the public’s disdain and his own desired physical abolishment for the proclaimed fake news medium. With this shindig, it’s clear to people why that may be and it should be clear now that Trump’s ongoing social media spats is just the same distracting fodder that he used to provide the WWE with in his time as a pro wrestler feuding with the Small Business Commissioner Linda McMahon’s husband.

This party, although obviously not the first of it’s kind if you just go on any digital search engine for images of our money betters soirees, is the 10th circle of hell manifested. This happening is veritable proof that life as we know it in it’s current form is a joke and a lie if you don’t have obscene amounts of wealth, whether earned or inherited (mostly the latter). These lavish party people don’t give a goddamn, a shit, a fuck or a flying fuck about the concerns and problems of the middle class and the working poor that they feign (with now underlying mockery and contempt) to represent and inform. As George Carlin once proclaimed and prophesied just a few short years before his way to soon death, “it’s a big club, and you ain’t in it”. A quote which may now have to be inscribed in the nation’s constitution.

This party makes Marie Antoinette’s notorious and dismissive words to the suffering proles in 18th century France sound like a charitable suggestion for single payer health care and affordable housing and free college for all. This event happened despite the acrimony and polarization going on in the streets and the justified fury of the people confronting their elected representatives at town halls.

This blatant display of apolitical crapulence comes on the heels of the recent shooting of Republican elected officials at a field during a baseball practice. Is this party what was meant about the bipartisan unity demanded by all those effected by that day of terror and by Figurehead Trump. And wouldn’t this party trigger and inspire another disgruntled mentally ill citizen to consider this a proper target for his or her sense of immediate vigilante justice?

Mostly, this party put together by a major publisher of journalism, by one of the giants of the fourth estate, flies in the faces and insults the intelligence of the public and the right to be informed. And solidifies the rotten state of class division and widening wealth disparity overwhelming towns and cities as public services are being denied them to enrich people like Ms. Weymouth and her wealthy sociopath guests with generous tax cuts.

Certainly, they all had a good time and will continue to do so, even as it comes at the expense of the people’s growing fears and the concept of reality. Unless something happens to make people like Lally think twice about her next gathering of uber-equals. Say a revolution. With that prospect, it’s more likely she will hire military contractors to fortify her next one.

 

 

 

New Bad Days 25: Cop Shot To Death Inside NYPD Command Post In The Bronx

 

http://assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.3303621.1499284521!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_750/new-york-police-department-officer-shot.jpghttps://tribwpix.files.wordpress.com/2017/07/po-familia-photo-only.jpg?quality=85&strip=all&w=186&strip=all

 

Bronx

In Fordham Heights at 12:30 a.m at a NYPD command post stationed on the block, Officer Miosotis Familia was shot and killed from point blank range when career criminal Alexander Bonds pointed his gun at the window. Bonds was eventually killed after he tried to flee and raised his weapons to police that surrounded him.

Officer Familia was a nurse and worked for the Red Cross prior to joining the NYPD and has been serving the public for 12 years in her position.

Since the incident, a facebook post from the killer has appeared that has him claiming to get back at police for suffering abuse at prisons and various reports of endemic corruption reported about at jails and selective justice favoring excessive force committed by cops that made national news. But this might not be so simple. Usually when a command post vehicle is set up, it’s to provide a presence to repress drug dealing.

Eyewitness accounts have said that the shooter was hanging on a street corner in the early evening with a group of people around 7:30 p.m.

It’s only a day after this horrendous murder but something about this not only resembles the killing of two cops on their break 3 years ago by a crazed vigilante, but also of the killing of rookie Officer Edward Byrne when he was assigned to a heavy drug dealing area in South Ozone Park. Much of Banks’ convictions involve his long career in the drug trade.

The NYPD immediately determined this as an unprovoked attack as it certainly is. But it possibly might have been ordered.

Update

Recent articles on the killer of Officer Familia has revealed that he was prescribed anti-psychotic and anti-depressant medications and that he was released from St. Barnabas Hospital after undergoing a psychiatric exam. From this it looks like he was not in his right mind the night of and weeks before he committed the heinous murder. Now all that is left to figure out is where he got the stolen gun or if someone gave it to him.

Although it’s hard not to figure out another expensive failure of the De Faustio administration and their half-ass handling of the city’s mental health system.

In Crotona, gunfire erupted on a street at crowds of people leaving a nearby park having a weekend cookout hitting a man in the head and a woman in the knee.

3 fires occurred in apartment buildings in 3 neighborhoods. In Claremont Village, a fire broke out on the 10th floor of a 20 story apartment building. In Hunts Point, a fire broke out on a 5 story building injuring 10 people. And in Melrose, a fire engulfed an apartment building leaving tenants homeless. The building’s fire detectors never sounded according to residents. The landlord adamantly claimed that every apt. had a fire extinguisher and the building was equipped with a sprinkler system.

Brooklyn

In Bensonhurst, a man attempted to rob a gun store by spraying pepper spray at the owner who then took out his piece and shot at him.

In Bed-Stuy, a woman was stabbed to death by her husband inside her apartment.

On the F train at 4:30 p.m. at the Bergen St. station in Downtown Brooklyn, a commuter blocking the door by leaning against it was punched in the face and repeatedly assaulted by a man who fled when the train pulled to next stop.

In Park Slope at 7:30 p.m., a woman was assaulted by a man when she tried to break up a fight he had with someone else. A 19 year old man was punched in the face by another man and 2 bikes were stolen that were locked to poles.

In Brooklyn Heights at 2:00 a.m., a man got attacked with punches in his face when he refused to give the culprit a cigarette earlier and a woman had her purse snatched while picnicking in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

At the Carroll St. station in Carrol Gardens, a 61 year old man was stalked, threatened with a gun and beaten down by a man after he refused to give him his bag.

In Prospect Heights, a man without a shirt walked into a church and sat down next to a nun and denounced her faith and threatened her life.

Manhattan

At the East River Park by 6th st. in the East Village, a dead body was found floating in the water

At Morningside Park in Harlem during a BBQ party attended by hundreds of people, after someone yelled “It’s about to get lit” gunfire broke out and caused everyone to flee. (update from NBD 24)

In the East Village, an 87 year old man was killed crossing the street when a taxi hit him at 9 p.m. The area where the incident occurred has undergone an elaborate street design change.

In Noho,  a construction worker was critically injured when an elevator he was working on fell on him.

Staten Island

In New Brighton, two teenagers threatened cops and threw fireworks at a police car patrolling the block, damaging it.

Queens

As predicted at the blog CleanUp Jamaica Queens Now, in Jamaica at 3:30 a.m., a triple shooting broke out at a BBQ cookout on the 4th of July, killing a mother of 2 kids and a man.

At Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for murder stole pepper spray off a security guard and used it to attack other inmates.

In South Richmond Hill, 2 men are still on the loose after committing an armed robbery at a store on Liberty Ave.

For Officer Familia, thanks for your service

 

 

Is This Now America?

https://i1.wp.com/anonhq.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/08/Iowa-upside-down-flag-634x400.jpg

To paraphrase Charlie Brown, today is independence day and I don’t feel like celebrating, I don’t feel like I am supposed to feel (maybe like this eagle) And it’s because of certain incidents involving the oppression by elected officials against the citizenry attempts to freely assemble and express themselves.

Like the row in Washington D.C. shortly before the recent failure to steal health care away from millions to cover grotesque and lunatic tax cuts for the nation’s wealthiest fuckers:

This may arguably be the lowest and heinously arbitrary use of cops ever used against a protest. All that pussy Senator McConnell-Chao could have done was meet with them to avoid this travesty. They were all crippled and blind, what harm could they have possibly done to the senator majority leader? Instead they were carried out like sacks of meat because of his cowardice and arrogance.

It’s quite something else that it’s come down to the infirm to bring awareness and persuade these lawmakers to consider the needs of the people that elected and did not elect them but still pay their bloated salaries (which considering their own personal fortunes they do not deserve) and their own health care provided to them by the government.

This flagrant denial of their civil and constitutional rights to assemble in the halls of the Senate, for that is the property of the people, is a real time signal and symbol of the horrifying state of the nation under Figurehead Trump and his billionaire cabinet and oligarch constituency, whom don’t have enough treasure from all the favored legislation they have received in the past almost 40 years (even under Clinton and Obama). Fortunately, this new version of the Expendable American Health Care Act, the Better Care Reconciliation Act (reconciliation???) got shut down before the weekend and their summer vacations, so the nation’s middle class, working poor, these brave handicapped protesters and even the 24 million still uninsured have a few months to breath easy then chew their nails has the autumn draws near.

Last week on the Lower East Side, Mayor De Blasio Faustio held a town hall meeting as part of his Kabuki theater of the absurd borough tour and got super creative to control the narrative, content and atmosphere.

As the constituency was proceeding to go inside the building, a man working security was stopping people from bringing in pamphlets that were very critical of the district’s councilwoman Margaret Chin’s apparent subservience to the REBNY guild and the out of scale development going on by the Manhattan bridge with the building of 2 massive luxury towers. In a ruse to show fairness for this mild form of passive aggressive oppression, other minions from the security team confiscated pamphlets of information/propaganda belonging to the councilwoman as if not to arouse suspicion. Which failed when it was discovered that the guard was actually an off duty cop.

The primary opponent, Aaron Foldenauer, immediately filed a complaint against the city for this new travesty. De Faustio, despite being hyped as running unopposed in the primary, is clearly panicking as is the awful lapdog councilwoman, who probably got intimidated by the turnout and have a sense that a lot of people are on to them and their fauxgressive agenda. If this diabolical scheme to oppress themselves wasn’t enough to expose their bland version of fascism.

If by divine intervention, meaning the citizens of NYC wake up, show up to the polls and primary De Faustio in September (man we’re running out of time), he can take his fat yoga ass to Wisconsin where free speech has become privileged for the one at the podium or with the mic.

https://i1.wp.com/onewisconsinnow.org/wp-content/uploads/jesse-kremer-1200x630.png

Meet Assemblyman Jesse Kremer, of Madison, Wisconsin. He had just crafted a bill that became law that is supposed to protect free speech on college campuses. This might have been inspired for the recent outbreaks of misguided students yelling about their disdain for certain speakers of political standings and also the soft fascism of student council groups to rearrange terminologies for sensitivities of minority or physically disabled students. Or more likely this is blowback.

Anyway, there are few BIG problems with this. One is that if students don’t agree with the speaker and if they yell vulgarities or chant slogans, it is still freedom of speech and expression, no matter if you don’t like it, with the exception of yelling fire when there is none. Two, the penalties are harsh and devastatingly life altering, leading to long suspensions and expulsions. Despite it’s ratification, this is going to lead to lawsuits that will quickly head to the Supreme Court. Although that might be why the Christian Extremist Republican Elected Junta pushed Gorsuch’s nomination. And these jerks are worried about Sharia Law?

And three, this imbecile who pushed this bill thinks our planet is 6000 years old. 

Besides his stupid belief in the age of the planet, this will cause problems for the young conservative thinkers too if liberal faculties decide to cite this to keep their favorite pundits or politicians from addressing student bodies. But these jackasses never think ahead, they only want to enforce and suppress while the law is still young so they can control the narrative and to use reinforcements when they desire.

This is a scary time in the short time of the Trump Administration, for it’s existence is causing deleterious effects in certain people in powerful positions and their addictive zeal for absolute control. Or maybe like Trump, it’s just a twisted thrill to fuck with people, especially in Senator McConnell-Chao’s case. Their actions are true treason and they must be stopped with extreme prejudice.

The country has to be taken back from these stupid fascist assholes.

As for the Caricature In Chief and his recent social media statement and ultraviolent fantasy of clamping down on journalism, a reminder:

 

 

Austin 3:16 kicked your ass. America 3:16 will send your ass to oblivion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Grenfell Tower In London: Gentrification’s 9/11

britain-fire

Kensington And Chelsea, London, England, United Kingdom

The Grenfell Tower’s torching was absolutely and undoubtedly preventable. The tenants there have been complaining for years about it’s negligence, even with an excellent and thoroughly detailed community blog about the terrible building managers and the willful indifference of city and parliamentary officials.

This horrific disaster was brought forth not only by the cause of the fire, which allegedly was sparked by a malfunctioning refrigerator that had plastic coils, but how it accelerated so fast in the first place. It was caused by the “cladding” encompassing the entirety of the building, supposedly to be used as protection from rain but the popular opinion is that it was used more for decorative purposes to gussy up the area to mesh with recent looming luxury tower development and recently installed fancy public spaces. This cladding is actually banned to use here in America, yet paradoxically this nation has industries that make it and sell it for import where there is little to no regulation, the same with the crappy plastic coiled fridge that ignited the fire.

It’s also more for the actions from those responsible for it’s upkeep and the deeply hidden but naked contempt for it’s residents, made up of working class poor people, recent Syrian refugees and those of modest means.

The NYC DOB and the 100 worst landlords have nothing on the Tories. For it was their rigid ideological conservative thinking that led to the homelessness and deaths of the residents of that building from the majority ruling shutting down of the Labour Party bill to provide safety measures that was actually called the “Homes Fit For Human Habitation”, for the reason described as the culture of safety. And for good measure, the majority of those upper class twit MP’s happen to own and rent properties for habitation themselves.

And it the borough council’s hoarding of 274 million pounds meant for the building’s upkeep and safety, the latter which was legally blown off by officials and exacerbated by gruesome government cutting, seems inspired from the grotesque money managing of NYCHA. Since Grenfell did not even have a sprinkler system installed in the building and apparently was bereft of fire extinguishers. The insane thing is that the RBKC and the KCTMO board had decided that cosmetic improvements were more important than emergency preparedness, as the cladding cost 11 million pounds to install.

The victims of what is being called corporate manslaughter were told to stay in their apts. by phone operators during the inferno. Reportedly most of the advisory signs in the building also suggested that tenants remain inside too if that isn’t too ironically warped. For hours the building blazed people remained inside because of this advice leaving them trapped. To this date, 79 people perished and died and there are still some missing. A mural of photographs of family members and neighbors cover a fence by the charred remains.

Apparently, as is going on here in the boroughs of NYC and all over the nation’s biggest cities (even Nashville) there has been a rush of influx tower hyper-development and ambitious and haughty city planning promoting luxury living and dining, and brand vibrancy nearby the struggling project complexes. The Gentrification Industrial Complex influence and manipulation of cities apparently has no limitations. Although in Britain, it’s called “regeneration”.

And as it is in NYC and other metropolises, London also is experiencing a dwindling middle class and a widening economic gap between the rich and poor.

Days after the inferno and the horrendous protective photo ops and embarrassing video of P.M. Theresa May fleeing a church from the yelling hordes and press photographers, there was actually a report on CBS News at 11 that focused on Grenfell and the pestilence of tower development on the coasts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn (and soon the Bronx) that wondered if it could happen here also. In the 2 minute segment fragment, they interviewed a DOB official who looked like he shit himself when he claimed that there is nothing much to worry about, which may have some truth because these new behemoths packed by the rivers don’t have the cheap cladding that ignites easily. The fire inspector they skyped with basically gave the same advice as those useless posters in Grenwell’s stairwell.

Since the devastation and destruction of the community of Grenfell, proactive though arbitrary measures were taken that led to the entire evacuation of another public housing building with the same cheap cladding and the transfer of the surviving tenants into a hotel for temporary shelter, a Holiday Inn Express (this chain does great business with the destitute even in London). Unfortunately, they all got kicked out of the hotel after a few weeks on short notice because of prior reservations and of course lack of warning and funding by the horrendous and primeval management group that destroyed their homes and livelihoods.

Not only is this Gentrification’s 911, but it’s neoliberalism’s WTC cleanup site or Iraqi Freedom, since it’s now producing collateral damage and existential dread among the displaced and disenfranchised from the massive tragedy. And like those analogies, the ones truly responsible, the elected and the appointed officials will not face any consequences or express genuine remorse, for this is how the preternatural way of progress works when it comes to shaping societies and economies in the new century. It comes to the point were Some Lives Don’t Matter when it comes to the lower and middle classes because their incomes don’t speak loud enough to be heard or to even give a fuck about, even if the people have a meticulously detailed blog about the rancid incompetence and vile indifference of the former Grenfell management group.

 

 

New Bad Days 24: The City Goes On A Decrimilization Spree Rendering Hard Drugs,Loitering And Turnstile Jumping Menial Offenses (The Last One Universally Justified) And The Presence Of Bikes Abound In A Variety Of Incidents

In Midwood, two disgusting women went into a drug store and opened up a package of baby wipes and starting cleaning themselves in the aisle and beat up a worker who went to confront them.

In Crown Heights, a bus popularized on social media was torched.

And now to go along with last years decriminalizing of at times excessive charges of pot smoking or possession, public imbibing and peeing on the streets, D.A. Cy Vance has decided to cut some slack on the abusers of society’s destructive vices with the lessening of charges for possession and usage of heroin and painkillers, crack and cocaine and also for jumping the turnstile and the old pastime of loitering. As I stated in the headline, train fare evasion, in light of recent events involving the fucking MTA and the persistent shitty and now life endangering service they are providing, it is not worth paying $2.75 to ride daily under the proclaimed state of emergency condition it’s in. But everything else might be overkill and could be a way to find a reason to shut down Rikers if nobody is going to charged for anything. Sounds conspiratorial but these decriminalzations are looking like a ploy to get the new jails built now. Especially with one being shockingly considered in tony Beorum Hill.

The hysterical thing about the master plan to shut down Rikers is that De Faustio may have reservations about it. As shown when he was confronted by an activist in his peculiar workout gear.

Although this looks like a reason to rejoice in thinking that cops will be busy getting the murderers and the robbers off the streets, it is not going to end the cause of the crimes, for a lot of these incidents involve the trafficking and abuse of the drugs now being treated less seriously. And addicts of course will resort to anything to get a fix, which historically involves thievery.

And of course that these drugs, idiotically including marijuana are federal contraband and are pursued with absolute zeal by agents and prosecuted nationally with zero tolerance.

The X factor of how this social experiment might not mostly have the desired positive results is that a lot of people take advantage and short cuts to get what they want, especially in this overtly cynical political state were in today and going by Nietzsche’s view of mankind. If there is an analogy here, take the NYPD’s abuse of stop and frisk and how that went awry and how much it has cost the city because of wrongful arrests and the national interest in the incarceration and death of Kalief Browder, which is how this all got started. It’s not hard to imagine what society will look like if the shoe is on the foot of the ones that will take advantage now.

Certainly repeat offending will not tamper down with all this leeway and it might lead to a worse and more arbitrary and oppressive version of “broken windows” policing.

The big problem is that there has to be repression of obnoxious, repellent behavior and respect for the rule of law, and this all hinges on the public and the hopes that they will be moderate and discreet of their vices and refrain from recidivism and habit and of course respect the men and women in blue who are being ordered to let them be.

And with the economic disparity going on this town, the rise in hedonism going on in trendy gentrified areas and of course the wanton civic abuse going on in city hall, it’s not looking so rosy. Or even vibrant.

Let’s not overlook loitering. It’s going to make street corners more menacing again, and also all those long vacant shuttered storefronts, building plazas and town parks after dark occupied with newly minted street scum.

Which will be capital for monetary exchanges for goods and services for their opioid needs.

Our legislative officials better tread lightly from here. Judging by the Mayor’s petulance, it looks like they don’t really know the shitshow they started.

Are you ready for the summer?
