New York’s Bail Reform Law Has Led To A Rise In Omerta

The Five Boroughs, New York

NY Post

With shootings in the city up 87 percent this year and murder mushrooming by 34 percent, the NYPD needs cooperating witnesses more than ever.

But they are coming up against a wall of stony silence. And cops and prosecutors point to myriad reasons.

“The community helps solve lots of different types of crimes,” Giacalone said. “When the public doesn’t trust the police, the information stops flowing. And that information is vital.”

Police worry that COVID-19 changes like ubiquitous face masks will make it even more difficult to identify shooters.

Then there is the rising tidal wave of gang violence, where scores are settled on the streets and not a court of law. Gangbangers rarely talk.

“It’s a challenging time,” said NYPD spokesman Al Baker. “There’s an anti-snitch culture that’s taken root amid a level of violence that makes people reluctant to cooperate with our investigators. But we work every day with our partners in the city’s district attorneys’ offices to combat this culture and to solve crimes and help ensure public safety.”

Experts say recently enacted laws that endanger witnesses aren’t helping matters.

“The New York State Bail Reform Act has royally screwed up policing,” Sgt. Joseph Imperatrice, founder of Blue Lives Matter NYC, told The Post, saying the new discovery rules and judges letting criminals go have reversed “decades of progress.”

“Witnesses and confidential informants have little to no protection in regards to the new discovery rules,” he explained. (Reliable confidential informants, also known as CIs, are often paid).

“Old-school policing, where good officers would meet with people on the street to gain information, has dwindled,” he added. “Many witnesses know that their personal information will be available and possibly get out to the defense team.”

Under the new rules, prosecutors must give defense counsel the name and contact information of anyone with information relevant to a case within 15 days of arraignment — ­regardless of whether the person will testify at trial.

One seasoned Brooklyn detective said the new discovery rules have a lot to do with cops being stonewalled. “Witnesses ask if the shooter will get their name and they are told, ‘Probably yes,’ ” he said.

He said he used to have cooperating witnesses in about 75 percent of cases, but “now I would say we get witnesses in less than half of the cases.”

The old saying on the streets is “snitches get stitches” but apparently with the ill-written bail reform laws that were ratified at the start of this horrendous end of the decade will get you a lot more if you catch a bullet. Because now to go along with the rise in shootings is a rise in silence by those who got shot.

This also may be why that retaliation might be a huge factor in the rise in gun violence, which have saw massive gains in all of Brooklyn, the Bronx, uptown and uptown Manhattan, the Southeast parts of Queens and incremental gains in downtown Manhattan and northeast Queens.

Besides the masks to thwart recognition from being caught on cameras in the vicinity while committing these crimes, most of the streets are still desolate at all times of the day because of the pandemic. Which is made even more empty with bars and restaurants being shut down still.

This bail reform law was designed to bring down inmate population in prisons most notably Rikers Island to make way for four tower prisons in four boroughs that no one wants. Sorry, no sane person wants. The list of crimes that are exempt from judge’s decision to set bail are mostly based on the most violent and devastating acts you can commit on your fellow citizens and damage them for life mentally and financially. And a majority of them are burglaries and robberies, which are usually committed with the use of a gun.  

The ramifications from them has upended prosecutions, scared off willing and courageous informants, and let loose the most violent recidivist criminals to commit more offenses. Which has led to double the amount of fatalities than there were last year at this time.

To make some sense of this chaos through revisionist history; if these bail reform laws were around in the 90’s, I really doubt some two bit versions of Henry Hill or Sammy the Bull Gravano would have been able to tell their stories and take down their respective mob families, crack kingpins would have had more territories and it would have took Giuliani and Bratton, Safir and Kerik more time to bring down crime rates.

And say if Micheal Meyers attacked his kid sister when he escaped from the mental hospital, but got caught and then got arraigned, these bail reform laws would have sprung him and gave him info of where Jamie Lee Curtis was hiding out and “Halloween” would have ended a lot earlier. PJ Soles might have even survived.

That’s probably stretching it a bit much, but there’s are a lot of other ways to describe the impact from the Summer of Guns, that looks as like it’s going to continue as the leaves fall and the nights get longer. The city’s got a 15 week streak of gun violence and cops cannot get any word from the victims even when they are having their last breaths, and good luck getting witnesses to help out. The sad and sick part about all this is that the majority of people getting hit and killed are all Black and Latino lives and they are getting wiped out by other Black and Latino lives, so basically when these virtue signalling lobbyists were pushing to have these reforms enacted and then those elected who decided legislate those edicts has endangered all of them even more.

A new saying on the streets is “White silence leads to violence”, mostly uttered by current/White activists marching every day and written on social media in solidarity for Black Lives Matter. Too bad that their own silence about the violence not at the hands of a crooked cop but from the hands of a Black or Latino man and the subsequent silence of the victims of gun violence doesn’t warrant the same solidarity or even attention from them.

 

Cuomo’s COVID Comedy Is Not Pretty

New Normal, New York

Governor Andrew Cuomo  has been in quite a blue mood lately. Although it’s not over New York elected officials bipartisan calls and congressional and senate demands from DC calling for an independent investigation into the motives behind his mandate demanding nursing homes accept COVID19 patients and the immunity law he gave the owners and financial holders of them. It’s also not over the MTA’s running out of funding to maintain and operate the transit system to go along with maniacs breaking train windows for the fuck of it. It’s also not over the mass exodus of the state’s richest people from the big hollow apple and especially those he’s groveling to so they stay put…

No it’s all these young and youngish adults who are flouting the pandemic protocols he put in place back in April (which he did very late) that mandated mask wearing and social distancing while shopping indoors and mingling outside at bars and restaurants. Even though this consensus flouting as been going on since the outbreak began and reaching the tipping point in summer’s eve with people partying down on an Astoria street, Cuomo decided that the only way he could get the narrative through to these maskless party obsessive punks would be through, um, comedy.

Now Cuomo is the last person who should delve into this genre, although as his massive ego and megalomania plainly shows, it’s safe to say that he probably thinks he knows funny more than anyone else who happens to be in his surroundings. Even that COVID 19 mountain grave poster he commissioned to make and is selling now has little side jokes (the boyfriend cliff).

What’s truly interesting about Cuomo’s sudden interest in resorting to humor is that because of his emergency executive powers that Albany’s legislators gave him in order to prevent contagion to keep the curve going back up the mountain is that he won’t let people who are actually funny and rely on comedy for their livelihoods do their jobs:

Witness this from the Queens Chronicle:

Customers at outside restaurants and bars can enjoy live music with their meal as long as the operators can produce appropriate State Liquor Authority certification and can keep at least a 12-foot distance between performers and the audience. Comedy shows, which can also accommodate those metrics, are not extended that right, however.

“Restaurants and other on premises food and beverage establishments that have a license through the SLA are only allowed to offer on-premise music if their license certificate specifically allows for such activity … All other forms of live entertainment, such as exotic dancing,s comedy shows, etc., are not permissible currently regardless of phase,” read the state Phase 3 and 4 guidelines for Licensed On-Premises Establishments.

A spokesperson for the Empire State Development Corp. said that comedy shows, whether indoor or outdoor, are considered high-risk gatherings. The state is concerned that they would create an environment that encourages mingling and congestion, resulting in spread of COVID-19.

“Comedians should be up in arms about this bizarre, explicit distinction. So musical comedy would be okay?” Kambri Crews, owner of comedy club QED, wrote in an Aug. 13 tweet.

Like many other comedy clubs, the Astoria cafe had been operating outdoors in accordance with respective Department of Health dining guidance — patrons should not be standing unless for necessary reasons, standing customers should wear face coverings and that 6-foot distance measures should be respected. In early July, the SLA rescinded that right.

“What comedy show have you been to where people are standing around and milling about?” said Crews, who told the Chroncile she’d happily accommodate any SLA restrictions, such as not selling alcohol, if it meant she could resume operations.

When asked if the distinction between live music shows at restaurants and live comedy performances at clubs lay in the guests’ incentive for gathering, the Empire State Development Corp. spokesperson said, “Music is ancillary to the meal.”

I don’t want to obsess that long on what a moronic statement that spokesman said, because I’ve been to plenty of clubs and concerts and I never had a hankering to chow down on something, but drinking is usually either required and expected during a stand up comic’s show. And Cuomo has been sending his SLA agents to shut down bars with the efficacy of how the Matrix deployed duplicate Agent Smiths after Keanau Reeves, but that’s another long story that needs to be thoroughly investigated and told, because I think the issue here is the state of comedy in New Normal, New York and in COVID-19 America. And it’s not fucking pretty.

Back in May, the NY Daily News profiled a young comedian who was doing parodies of Governor Cuomo’s daily COVID-19 briefings on her social media accounts. Taking after (or stealing from) an overnight sensation novice comedian (and former tech drone) Sarah Cooper’s twitter vids mocking Donald Trump’s interviews and statements by lip synching them, Maria de Cotis lip synched some clips of Cuomo’s pressers that immediately went viral, getting tons of hits and also praise for her satires on the suddenly immensely popular governor, mimicking personal and familial anecdotes and charming banter with the press.

Being a fan of comedy, especially satire, and with a social media account of my own, I felt a sudden urge to aide Ms. de Cotis.

 

So I clicked the link of her tweet video and I made some suggestions how she can get even more viral and huge by mimicking other videos from his daily briefings that were instantly available from attachments to stories and links from the New York Post that were related the serious subject matter of his policies that he wasn’t getting national fame for, the manipulating of rising mortality rates in nursing homes.

Now I’m not much of an influencer, well, I’m actually not an influencer, my blog only gets about 10-20 hits a day and I have under 400 followers on the twitter, so I didn’t expect her to take my advice. My clear intent was to disrupt the awful narrative that Governor Cuomo is some sort of hero of the pandemic when his dawdling from shutting down the state cost over 25,000 New Yorker’s lives. And also that Maria here can expand her repertoire with some dark, sardonic humor about this tragedy.

Alas, it was not to be. Because minutes later this happened:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/EY02MxSXYAAqjtE?format=png&name=small

 

I have tweeted at celebrities before challenging their views and opinions but they usually and naturally go ignored. And I’ve been blocked on the Twitter before by regular people, but this was the swiftest that I ever been cancelled by an account. A (quasi) celebrity account too. And it really wasn’t that hard to deduce.

This funny lady (according to her profession) has recently acquired some fame and celebrity likes for her lyp sync and satirical characterization of the most famous Governor in the USA #MatildasSon Andrew Cuomo. I saw all the videos when I had the chance, and all she did was goof on the segments from the briefings when he talked about his daughter.  And as shown above, I suggested she would probably get more raves if she lipsync clips of Cuomo talking about his handling of the nursing homes which is getting a lot of critical scrutiny. And all the videos were available on all the links I provided.


Maybe DeCotis doesn’t do satire that’s acerbic or dark, maybe that’s not her thing, but apparently, she does satire that’s government approved. Or in this case, Cuomo approved. Because in her videos, she not only links Cuomo’s government account but also his personal account @andrewcuomo

The only thing missing from that “comedian”s videos was the excelsior emblem. All of her video tweets have both of Cuomo’s accounts. Something tells me that this woman could have got commissioned to be a jester for King Andrew’s court. While the “LuvGuv” can keep tabs on his detractors. Zoiks.

Which brings us to Cuomo’s latest resort to comedy derived policy making. As the chillier weather and flu season of Autumn nears and with reports of college students  getting infected after attending crowd cluster homecoming ragers and park ravers, he gave his celebrity brah Paul Rudd, star of “Clueless” and creator of the sharp comedy about traveling van catering waiters “Party Down”, a call and make a humorous PSA loaded with that snark humor that millenials and Gen Z appreciate so much and view on their $1,000 cellphones.

 

Rudd gives it all he got here, from the hipster pube beard and upscale hoodie, headphones and skateboard accessories while going off at the mouth with heavily misused social media jargon, but it just falls flat. Especially when the bit comes to a halt when he pleads with the target demographic to don the masks and show respect, which negated everything that was mildly amusing in the video in the first 60 second as Mr. Rudd descends into another middle aged man desperately trying to connect today’s youth that will surely won’t listen. The saddest thing about this is not the wasted effort in this video but the fact that Governor Cuomo basically summoned Rudd to produce this mess. Again spending New Yorker’s tax dollars to hire another jester at his whim.

To paraphrase the immortal saint of comedy Bill Hicks, government monitored and approved humor will always suck. And government integrated comedy is surely worse, as manifested recently at Gotham Comedy club when Chuck Schumer grabbed the mic from Jerry Seinfeld to tell a shitty joke during a charity fundraiser. (And shouldn’t Gotham have their liquor licensed revoked for having a joke being told, which is against COVID guidelines?)

But there is a reason why comedy performance is considered (and mandated) as a potential contagion hazard by the Governor, and that’s because comedy is capable of reverting the authoritative narrative and constructs of the establishment and is capable of bringing truth to power as or even more effectively than the hardest hitting muckraking journalism could. Imagine if a funny person with a gig at a club like the Comedy Cellar going off for an hour with jokes about the police states and the obscene redistribution of wealth that are simultaneously blossoming during this pandemic and gilded age coinciding with a depression and about the politicians of today who are doing a horrendous job serving their constituents with conflicting and suppressing pandemic guidelines while assuring their moneyed donors they will be well protected. The last thing people with power want is someone getting on a stage with solid comic material that excoriates the system induced by this pandemic and going viral with it.  That’s the kind of super spread that Cuomo is just as worried about. Maybe more.

As Herschel Krustofsky illustrates and as the legacies of Lenny Bruce, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and Bill Hicks has validated, the best and funniest comedy besides the jokes is when it challenges the status quo and points out the inherent absurdity of it. It confronts taboos and turns them inwards rendering them irrelevant. It exposes the truth behind the lies and opens up minds that hear it, subjecting the creators and defenders of those lies  to the ridicule they all deserve. Sadly, thanks to the likes of Paul Rudd and Maria DeCotis, all of that endemic graft and corruption is going to continue unblemished.

Speaking of Ms. DeCotis, I wonder how she has progressed as a comic since she went viral months ago.

I guess I will never know. And apparently, it’s very essential that I better not.

The last time I heard Andrew Cuomo make something resembling a joke was just days before he was going to end his COVID daily briefing afternoon variety show; he rang the bell at the New York Stock Exchange and flippantly remarked that 73 people who succumbed to coronavirus that day as “good news”. And topped it off diminishing those people that died with a tone deaf observation by describing it as the “absurd reality” “we” all live in.  The reality the ersatz King Cuomo exacerbated with his criminally absurd and negligent decisions while trying to normalize vapid acceptance by marginalizing the deaths of over dozens of people because of the vast amount that died and got stored in trailers before those 73 victims in a short amount of time.

No wonder he needs comedy to salve his sorry leadership and the general lack of respect for him from young adult and certifiable young New Yorkers. And to salvage his certifiable royal fuckups.

 

 

 

 

 

NYC Board Of Education’s COVID-19 Protection Supplies For Schools Won’t Do Quat

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2020/09/0fbdb-screenshot_2020-09-122bprincipals2bblast2bnyc2bdoe2bfor2bsupplying2bschools2bwith2b25e225802598cheap2bblack-market2bcrap25e2258025992bppe.png

 NY Post

It’s PPE to die for.

The city Department of Education is supplying schools with defective thermometers, “low quality” masks, and smelly wipes, a disgusted Queens principal told The Post.

“The s—t they gave us won’t protect us — not the students, teachers or parents,” fumed the educator. “Every principal in NYC is banging their head against the wall.”

“The “cheap, black-market crap” includes touchless, electronic thermometers that registered temperatures at 40, 50 and 60 degrees.

“You’d be dead,” she said. “We keep taking each other’s temperatures like we’re clowns.”

The school leader, who asked for anonymity to avoid repercussions, said the two dozen thermometers sent to her school had no batteries, so she ran to the store and spent nearly $300 of her own money to power them up. They were better left uncharged.

“Why are they spending millions on black-market thermometers with no name brand?” the principal asked, adding that the directions are printed in Chinese. “These are supposed to keep us safe?”

“I really believe this is black-market items from China bought in bulk — hundreds of handheld thermometers we’ll be throwing in the garbage,” the heated supervisor said.

After recognizing the handheld thermometers were faulty, she said, the DOE installed electric thermometers on the walls in the lobby to check students upon arrival.

She is also disgusted by the DOE’s disinfectant wipes.

“They don’t have the high level of alcohol that’s supposed to protect our hands from bacteria.

“I wouldn’t wipe my ass with it,” she said.

The name of the sanitizer wipes is named “Quat”. Sounds like a queef with a nasty discharge.

Already over 30 faculty people got infected while preparing for the first day of school coming next week with the PPE’s and the distancing guidelines they already are doing. If there isn’t a teacher’s strike or if the Board of Education doesn’t suspend school for the year, then thousands more will surely succumb.

It’s fucking obscene that the principal who is delightfully quoted here has to protect herself and her school by both remaining anonymous just because she’s horrified by the PPE supplies she received, while Chancellor Richard Carranza is supervising all this on the cheap. Instead of her who is genuinely worried about human lives that she feels she risking her job, Carranza is the one who should be fired. As for Mayor de Blasio, well, he doesn’t have a soul. I don’t know any other way to summarize this fucking disaster they are enabling.

School’s out for Autumn, Winter, and Spring. Stay home kids.

Get the teacher strike in session, Fuck Carranza.

New Bad Days 76: During The Rapid Rise In Gunfire And Citizens Getting Hit On The Streets, The NYPD Spends Their Funding Exerting Revenge Seizures Of Protesters; City’s Shuttling Of Homeless People And Drug Addicts In Hotels In Two Upscale Areas Lead To Total Chaos; A Lone Man With A Hammer Has Been Smashing Subway Train Windows For A Month; Crazy Woman Slathers Black Lives Matter Slogan With Paint By Trump Tower Again; Two Men Get Shot Dead By A Memorial For A Friend That Got Shot Dead By Prospect Park; Food Aid Gets Dumped In The Wrong Places; Mass Gatherings Of Youths At Raves Continue In Defiance Of Another COVID-19 Outbreak As Gun Violence, Car Theft, Muggings, Stabbings, Hold-Ups And Burglaries Make Upward Trajectories As Suspicions Of A Policing Slowdown Gains Traction

Chalk up 2020 as the Summer Of Guns.

Since Governor Andrew Cuomo declared the coronavirus crushed back in June 5th (or 4th or 6th), the dominant pathogen in the five boroughs this year was the bullet. Which spread like wildfire over the summer bringing this years total to over 1,000 shooting incidents, hitting over 1,200 citizens (including children) leading to 107 deaths in 12 consecutive weeks of gun violence ending in the month of August, a rise of 89 and 97% respectfully and contributing to over 300 murders which has went up by 35% compared to last year.  At the pace it’s continuing as of this writing ,the amount of shootings and victims will eclipse the total amounts of the past two years.

More people are buying bulletproof vests. Must have been when Council Speaker Corey “Cojoke” Johnson described this meteoric rise in gun violence as a health emergency.

The shootings and other serious crimes that have also risen has brought attention and suspicion among the general public and even officials that the NYPD are collectively engaging in a slowdown, because of the low amount of arrests and their late and even lack of responses to crime on the streets. Particularly with the shocking low amount of arrests for gun possession. de Blasio’s NYPD police commissioner’s cites again and again that it’s because of the cuts to the force from the last budget that was partially influenced by the hashtag abolish NYPD constituency. Although signs still legitimately point to the misguided and poorly legislated bail reform laws, recidivist offenders being released on the streets and the city and state’s mandate to release convicts because of the hazardous conditions in prisons being that are not safe from spreading coronavirus and even from Shea’s premature decision to abolish the anti-crime unit tasked to pursue illegal firearms.

But apparently, even with elevated crime levels and funds reallocated from New Yorks Finest, de Blasio’s NYPD still found a lot of expense, personnel and time to settle a few grudges with a few protesters from Black Lives Matter:

Manhattan

In Kips Bay, an 18-year-old transgender woman riding a skateboard during a protest march on 2nd Ave was grabbed by five men who jumped out of a minivan. They turned out to be cops from the NYPD’s plain clothes warrant squad driving in an unmarked vehcile. They looked almost like the anti-crime unit Commissioner Shea disbanded in June.

Aiding this brazen and disturbing rendition on a public space were a squad of cops on bikes that were utilizing their cycles as weapons and shields to thwart witnesses and other protesters from viewing or stopping the arrest. Two of the bike cops ran over a person in their zeal to stop the protesters as the cops sped away with their collar in the van without even a police siren or a light indicating who they were as they cut off a truck when they ran the red light at 23rd St., which is a two way street.

What makes her arrest stunning is the way it was executed and literally choreographed like a scene from a Jason Bourne movie as if they knew she was coming or was being practically hunted by the NYPD for weeks.  The things that probably made this disturbing event possible is from facial recognition technology since she painted over street surveillance cameras that surely grabbed her face while she was vandalizing them and also placing some undercover officers or informants marching with the Abolition Park group and Black Lives Matter marchers, both of which are very likely especially the latter since a man involved with AP was pinched by an undercover for cutting cables under an NYPD van in Bay Ridge. Quite likely another cop posing as a demonstrator infiltrated this one. But they could have easily marked her down too from a Gothamist story featuring the woman at the Occupy City Hall protest 20 days earlier.

Nope, this is yet again another attempt to discourage and intimidate people from protesting against systemic injustices and endemic corruption in government and the enforcers that protect these institutions and the fortification of a police state by utilizing a local police force as central intelligence agency apparatus. If you think the optics of this woman’s arrest looks frightening, watch how the New NYPD literally vanishes a woman talking shit at a cop while drunk outside of a bar:

As for Mayor Big Slow de Blasio, his deliberately belated response to this broad daylight rendition by his police department whose officers did not even read the woman her rights was full of spineless insouciance and abject denial of the command that was implemented for this dystopian display of arbitrary oppression.

As amazing as how NY’s Finest has turned itself into a military junta during this pandemic and societal crisis, it’s equally amazing how the Blaz is able to sit upright without a spine at his daily briefings. In a pathetic show of pseudo objectiveness, he cowardly blew off the severity of the “effecuated” arrest. Which is shocking coming from a person who is always prioritizes optics for every decision he makes, especially regarding the paramilitary and invasive spying tactics of the NYPD.

Which both came to it’s absolute nadir a few weeks later…

In Hell’s Kitchen, the NYPD deployed a battalion of cops to an apartment building to execute an arrest of a man wanted for assaulting a cop by yelling through a megaphone at her ear at a Black Lives Matter counter-protest against a Blue Lives Matter rally and march in Bayside a few days earlier and in another cop’s ear two months before. 30 cops stood guard outside his building and blocked the street from traffic as two NYPD choppers flew overhead. Cops accessed his building and stood in front of and repeatedly banged on his apartment door with a K9 dogs barking trying to intimidate him as other cops arrived from their “Strategic Unit” and tried to negotiate by lying that he had lawyers ready to represent him as the man saw two cops across the street in an apartment building window directly from him.

With all the knuckleheaded determination to persuade the man to surrender with amateur psy-ops, the Black Lives Matter activist refused to open his door and filmed his entire encounter and himself jamming to music on his social media account. The cops then left after six hours without him because they didn’t have a warrant for his arrest. The amount spent for this profligate fruitless pursuit is not known, but this was ordered despite the NYC Council cutting one billion dollars from the NYPD budget. What is also not known is who made the command to hunt this activist down, since Mayor Big Slow de Faustio claimed that Shea had nothing to do with it even though he’s the fucking commissioner.

Despite the Blaz and Shea’s contemptible denials and obfuscations, they spent a huge amount of tax dollars just to settle a grudge and indict a protest organizer. Which falls in line with the billions of dollars at the city’s expense for all the corruption and bigotry driven abuse staining the badge for the last few decades; the exact reason why the citizenry is protesting against every day in the fucking first place.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, a church had to put up an obstruction in front of their entrance after after a group of homeless people were using the steps to shoot heroin and excrete bowel movements and urinate on them. The superintendent also had to clean up discarded liquor bottles left behind by the derelicts who were residing in a luxury hotel next door in accordance with the city’s policy to housing the homeless in them until the pandemic subsides.

Again in Hell’s Kitchen,  a man got shot at twice in the chin and arm on the street and didn’t reveal who pulled the trigger.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a homeless man went raving mad when a restaurant wouldn’t let him use the bathroom and then took his frustrations on two women dining on a table outside and spat on one of their plates. The one time hip bar hopping areas has become a slum with streets of derelicts shooting up, imbibing booze, and fucking and sleeping on the sidewalks.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man bashed a bunch of bottles of juice and soft drinks on his head inside of a deli over and over again while lying prone on the floor. The clerk expressed grief about the growing number of aggressive vagrants frequenting his store because a hotel across the street started housing homeless people that were transferred from shelters.

In the Upper West Side, Mayor de Blasio’s Department of Homeless Services shuttled hundreds of homeless people to shelter at three hotels on 77th St., 79th St. and 87th St. near without consulting residents of the town with help from the Federal Emergency Management Agency who contributed 3/4 of the funding to house them to prevent another outbreak of COVID-19. A bulk of the men were recently released from prisons and from a shelter full of men with drug struggles. Six of them turned out to be convicted pedophiles.

Neighborhood residents encountered on their commutes men masturbating, pissing and shitting in public and also shooting heroin, snorting blow, drinking booze and smoking K2 along with blatant drug dealing and derelicts prone on the ground from overdosing in full view on the sidewalks and on the benches on the medians on Broadway. Since the arrival of the city’s most destitute and unwanted and even though they are being housed in luxury rooms it’s led to a proliferation of more people sleeping on the streets and a rise in petty theft, aggressive solicitation and verbal harassment of random passerby including kids. Demands for the NYPD to patrol the nine blocks were these offenses were occurring did not get or even merit a response, even though Commissioner Shea lives exactly 6 blocks south from the area.

Being that drug use and selling went up, it looks like de Blasio wanted to do his own version of Hamsterdam from the fourth season of the Wire (the Blaz is a big fan of that show) by sending all the homeless people to an area where they might be accepted,  where a bulk of residents have liberal values that sympathize with poor people’s struggles and addictions. But it instead turned out that these enlightened residents don’t take too kindly to vices and recidivism when it’s on their blocks, sharing concerns with neighbors who don’t share their views and are reviled and understandably fearful of the presence of drug abuse and crime.  Just like in Hamsterdam, cops hardly responded to offenses committed by the homeless people. Like some kind of immunity because of the pandemic.

In the Wire’s Hamsterdam, the junkies were moved to a block where buildings were mostly vacant so the junkies can have a red light district to sell, cop and shoot up. But de Blasio’s UWS Hamsterdam, the homeless was shipped to a densely populated neighborhood that couldn’t handle the deluge of junkies that came flocking in and naturally didn’t expect the ramifications, because The City elected not to tell them who was coming in. Even about 900 of them. Goes to show that progressive minds can’t block or obscure even the saddest realities of the poverty and despair of people suffering from rampant drug use and fractured mental states and condensing these suffering people in a small area will only lead to disaster if not properly monitored or cared for.

Also the Upper West Side, a man was shot to death on the street from getting blasted in the chest at a playground following a fight with his killer.

Again in the Upper West Side, a man torched a police car that was parked on a block.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man killed himself when he fell five floors after slipping on a fire escape while smoking a cigarette. Homicide was not ruled out.

And again in the Upper West Sideat the 72nd St. Station, a man sneaked up behind a woman on the platform and stabbed her in the shoulder while holding a package of diapers.

And again in the Upper West Side, a 13-year-old boy had his cellphone robbed by another boy who grabbed it while passing by him riding a citibike. The victim is the son of a NYPD Deputy Commissioner in charge of the department’s counter-terrorism unit, a division that actually needs to be defunded.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man shot another man at his groin during a hold up.

And again in the Upper West Side, two men engaged in a shootout on the street and ran when the Guardian Angels tried to catch them.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man was shot in the stomach in the middle of the avenue.

And again in the  Upper West Side, a man pushed an NYPD Chaplain down on the sidewalk and took his wallet, then left it behind and ran away.

And again in the Upper West Side, a man got shot to death in front of an apartment building entrance at the Amsterdam Houses.

In the Lower East Side, a protest march in solidarity with the uprising against Trump’s federal copstapo in Portland went awry as a group of people vandalized and damaged NYPD vehicles and set trash can fires on the streets while body-armored cops kettled and trapped protesters on the street.

Also in Lower East Side, homeless people set up a homestead shanty town village underneath the highway on the FDR drive. When de Blasio’s Sanitation Dept. came by to destroy it and throw everything they organized into the garbage, they returned again the next day and rebuilt their shantytown and fortified it a portion of a chain link fence. Like I said, these people should be administrating new housing infrastructure for the HPD.

Again in the Lower East Side, a double decker booze cruise boat was met with the NYC Sheriffs Dept and busted for violating pandemic protocols for holding a party without social distancing.

And again in the Lower East Side, a former N.Y. State Assembly Speaker threatened to punch a photo-jorunalist before he was about to serve 6 and a half  years in jail for crimes he committed while in elected office.

 

In the East Village, a crew of homeless people built a loft apartment on the sidewalk underneath scaffolding where a luxury building is under development.

Mayor de Blasio, who recently proclaimed that he will not tolerate homeless encampments in his city, oh sorry your city, sent his Sanitation Dept. to raid the homestead and throw all the discarded furniture they collected into the garbage trucks. The next day, the same street denizens returned with new furniture and rebuilt their concrete floor homestead after waiting across the street until the coast was clear.

When de Blasio’s Sanitation Dept. wrecked their sidewalk village again, the crafty vagrants moved across the street to the shuttered Orpheum theater and easily reassembled their habitat. Instead of hassling and trying to disappear these people why doesn’t the Blaz contract them and build real affordable housing for the NYC Housing and Preservation Department?

Also in the East Village, a man on liquid courage tried to sit at a outdoor table in front of a trendy restaurant and got violent when a waiter told him they were closing and then he randomly attacked a man with a chair then got into a tussle with two women who were drinking there and slashed them with a metal blade. One of the women who fought him off was the daughter of famed stage and television actor Kelsey Grammar, so it’s no surprise where she got the instinct to deal with a knife handler.

A few weeks later, junkies were discovered shooting up by an non-functioning phone booth around brunch time about a block away.

Also in Midtown, a man plopped a can of paint on de Blasio’s Black Lives Matter mural in front of Trump Tower and spread it all over the slogan despite the mayor’s decision to deploy more cops there to guard it. The seventh time it’s happened. The city left the stain there for a week.

After the city finally cleaned it up, a woman stopped by and splattered the BLM mural again with blue paint. And then she returned dressed as the Statue of Liberty rolling a hand truck down the avenue and did a vandalism hat trick and spilling a bucket of pink paint on the mural. Capping her triumph by yelling the word freedom like Mel Gibson in Braveheart as her co-horts screamed like lunatics and waved Trump re-election signs.

It really says something about the lengths people will show for President Trump and not for the Mayor of New York City, that the Blaz is more loathsome than the guy who blew off the pandemic at its early stages and has left the economy in purgatory. Maybe the next time the idiot Hizzoner wants to manifest of his virtue signal tweets he should go through the proper permit process like his constituency have to instead of brazenly circumventing it thinking no one will notice.

Again in Midtown, a man walked into a designer handbag store and snatched a bunch of purses worth two grand and also a garment bag then flashed a box cutter at a worker and ran. This store is 2 blocks away where 9 cops are guarding the Black Lives Matter mural at Trump Tower from being vandalized.

And again in Midtown, an 18-year-old woman from Wyoming visiting NYC decided to visit the Empire State Building with a gun in her backpack and a man from Louisiana tried to do the same thing the next day. Bad enough there’s a pipeline trafficking guns to NYC that’s going unchecked and these hayseeds come here and think they can just waltz into a heavily guarded landmark tourist attraction with their pieces just because they have permits.

And again in Midtown, two groups of artists got into a brawl over space to sell their works in front of the New York Public Library that escalated when a man tried to bully two women from a corner by yanking a cellphone from one of them, leading them to shoot mace at his face.

This incident enraged a professional actor so much that he confused the train line his relatives take with the incident where this happened.

And again in the Upper East Side, a man on parole after serving time for burglary got caught in a woman’s apartment trying to burglarize it following two weeks of breaking into other apartments in the vicinity and the Upper West Side, where he stole five grand in jewelry and threatened a resident and robbed him of 90 bucks.

And again in Washington Heights, a man picked up a gun that was hidden underneath garbage by a tree and got into a shootout with another man on the sidewalk in broad daylight.

The woman wound up with a fractured spine and is afraid to go back to work.

Also in Greenwich Village, a homeless man built a homestead by the New School building with shopping cars filled with furniture and other items discarded by the rich people who abandoned and moved from New York City. The only thing the man didn’t get from the city’s upper class fugitives was a toilet, as he takes his shits out in the open on the sidewalk.

Again in Greenwich Village at the Christopher St. Station, a man fell between the cars of the 1 train and got stuck under the tracks.

In Hudson Yards at the 34th St. Station, a man with a hammer smashed every window on every car on the 7 train.

The vandal (and maybe an accomplice or two or other vandals) are responsible for damaging over 200 windows on the 7 line as well as the 2 and 3 lines, continuing a vandalism destruction spree for four months and now the MTA is all out of glass.

Yet they have 10,000 bucks to spare for a reward for citizens to catch the hammering vandal, proving that the MTA  is too broke to deploy transit cops to monitor the station. It’s baffling that Governor Cuomo didn’t get the guy who did his COVID grave poster draw up some old-timey most wanted signs.

But even if King Andrew did that (and he could because he runs the MTA) it still wouldn’t deter the recidivist vandal. Despite the bounty the hammering vandal returned to the Hudson Yards Station and pulverized another 20 windows on the 7 train again. The NYPD added another $2,500 to the reward for the recidivist, which they probably dredged from a high brass cops office chair after all the money they spent hunting two protesters in the city.

After getting the NYPD to add to the bounty, the MTA decided to implement their 90’s era broken windows crime prevention strategy to capture the serial window breaker. Duh.

In Columbus Circle, cops caught a man who broke the windows of the E and A train at the 42nd St. Station. But determined he wasn’t connected to the 7 train smashings because he used his foot to kick the windows.

And again in Chelsea, de Blasio’s NotifyNYC social media office announced that they were putting on an elaborate fireworks display on the Hudson River around 8 p.m., but didn’t elaborate what it was for. Then residents were flabbergasted and horrified to hear explosions nearby their homes around 11 p.m because the city rescheduled the spectacle because of inclement weather and they didn’t NotifyNYC of the change. The “show” was for an irrelevant and terrible network’s award show.

And again in Chlesea, a man punched his ex-girlfriend in the face and robbed her purse.

In Little Italy at the Spring St. Station, a man stood over a hand sanitizer dispenser and shot about a quart of it into his shorts, getting all over his junk and ass and then rubbed the excess on his belly and moved along.

In Tribeca, a car crashed into an outdoor dining area on the street in front of a fancy restaurant, injuring a woman eating al fresco.

In Downtown Manhattan, a man riding a citibike on the sidewalk rode up to a woman and punched her in the face. The victim is a district court judge who recently indicted an actor for sexual assault.

Also in Downtown Manhattan, the Joker was jet-skiing on the East River. Soon to be seen surfing at Rockaway Beach.

Talk about sleazy re-appropriation of a social justice movement to promote their business and themselves. The digital publication that posted this incident has been doing on the hour coronavirus updates since April and had no problem posting other stories of COVID19 defying parties with mass amounts of young adults, yet they decided to protect the organizers of this event by not displaying their names.

Trump To New York City: Drop Dead

NY Post

President Trump is ordering the federal government to begin the process of defunding New York City and three other cities where officials allowed “lawless” protests and cut police budgets amid rising violent crime, The Post can exclusively reveal.

Trump on Wednesday signed a five-page memo ordering all federal agencies to send reports to the White House Office of Management and Budget that detail funds that can be redirected.

New York City, Washington, DC, Seattle and Portland are initial targets as Trump makes “law and order” a centerpiece of his reelection campaign after months of unrest and violence following the May killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.

“My Administration will not allow Federal tax dollars to fund cities that allow themselves to deteriorate into lawless zones,” Trump says in the memo.

“To ensure that Federal funds are neither unduly wasted nor spent in a manner that directly violates our Government’s promise to protect life, liberty, and property, it is imperative that the Federal Government review the use of Federal funds by jurisdictions that permit anarchy, violence, and destruction in America’s cities.”

Federal agencies must detail “all Federal funds provided to Seattle, Portland, New York City, Washington, D.C.” Also, within 14 days Attorney General Bill Barr must develop a list of “anarchist jurisdictions” that “permitted violence and the destruction of property to persist and have refused to undertake reasonable measures” to restore order. The memo does not require Barr to include the four cities, possibly for legal reasons.

The memo instructs White House budget director Russ Vought to issue guidance in 30 days from Wednesday “to the heads of agencies on restricting eligibility of or otherwise disfavoring, to the maximum extent permitted by law, anarchist jurisdictions in the receipt of Federal grants.”

The amounts of money impacted by Trump’s order could be massive. New York City, for example, gets about $7 billion a year in federal aid.

President Trump, in his biggest executive order since he declared the whole country of America to be a disaster zone during the early and deathly stage of the coronavirus pandemic (labeled here as “Disasterland”), has now decided to levy sanctions through the O.M.B. on the American cities of Seattle, Portland, the nation’s capital Washington D.C. and the city he made once called home and made and then lost billions of dollars at, New York.

It’s not really that farfetched or hyperbolic to describe Trump’s memo as sanctions because that’s what they basically are. Considering how the 3 past presidents weaponized sanctions against sovereign nations that didn’t agree or abide to Clinton’s, W Bush’s and even the over-revered over-rated Barry Obama’s demands of them on weapons and their own leaders. Trump is doing the same thing on NYC and the other cities primarily because a vast majority of people are protesting and marching on the streets every day in solidarity calling for the abolishing of systemic police abuse.

With the exception of Portland, Seattle, D.C. and New York City has mostly moved on and protests have been mostly sporadic. Although they have been attended by saboteurs engaging in wanton destruction, the majority of the protests have been peaceful. But with New York, Trump has tied the city’s meteoric rise in shootings and other serious crimes to the social justice movements and by exhuming McCarthy he has unreasonably and baselessly labeled all protests as lawless and condemned the Big Apple as an anarchist jurisdiction.

The interesting thing about Donnie’s sanctions on American cities is that they sabotage the police he likes so much. It’s certainly going to make the cops in the cities he defunded harder to dominate them. Especially for the NYPD who he loves so much and are protecting all his real estate portfolio in Manhattan 24/7/365.

Speaking of New York’s Finest, Didn’t the PBA just endorse this guy? I don’t know about y’all but if this is going to be extremely counterproductive to the NYPD’s efforts to make the city safe from shootings and the protesters sloganeering with signs and vulgar cadences. Plus the city will just get worse than it is right now in all aspects regarding essential services like schools and mass transit.

In fact, the President’s sanctions on the five boroughs are already taking effect on those two services. Even though they have nothing to do with anarchy and street crime, the federal cuts already are underway starting with the Federal Bureau of Emergency Managements decision to cut COVID-19 aid funding to keep the subways and schools thoroughly disinfected plus stingy cut backs on PPE supplies on the most hardest hit city in the world by the novel virus as the temperatures start to chill with the first flu season of autumn weeks away. In a way it falls in line with Trump’s own flippant attitude about the novel virus, not just his persistent refusal to wear a face mask but also his inherent belief that COVID-19 is not as harmful or is the same as the common flu, which is in sync with the theories his new advisor has that downplays the severity of the contagion.

This will also effect government buildings like courts and prisons, the latter of which was so risky to inmates that the city and state had to release them back on the streets and into hotels to stop infections and flatten the COVID19 curve, which has also had a deleterious effects on the street crime rise. What’s interesting about the FEMA cuts to NYC is that they have absolutely nothing to do with the protests or the meteoric rise in shootings, but in a dastardly way sacrifice the health and safety of city workers and students as a form of payback for the protests decrying Trump’s law and order exhortations and policy decision deploying homeland security to oppress demonstrations and exhortations to defund police departments across the country. Even at the expense of the cops Trump claims to love and respect so much.

As for the NYPD, there has been virtual silence from their influential representatives and high brass about Trump’s executive vindictive memo against the city they patrol. The expansively vocal PBA leader Patrick Lynch, Police Commissioner Dermot Shea and even their version of Gen. MacArthur who battled and kettled the Black Lives Matter protests in early June, Deputy Commissioner Patrick Monahan have been silent about Trump’s defunding of the city they serve to protect, of which they have barely been able to do just that this summer amid accusations of a department slowdown and after daily voicing their frustrations following the city and state decisions to ban chokeholds, Trump’s decision has to be a betrayal to them and will make any effort to get guns off the streets as well as monitoring protests happening daily and spot the saboteurs milling in the marches looking to cause and instigate property destruction and vandalism more difficult.

If there is anything positive about Trump’s flipping off to his hometown and it’s not the irony of Trump defunding the NYPD, it’s that its exposed even more the weakness and fecklessness of the men elected to lead New York State and New York City, Governor Mario’s Son Cuomo and the worst Mayor in the history of humankind Bill de Blasio. Emperor Cuomo reacted to Trump’s memo with pathetic shit-talking bravado, his voice clearly shaking saying that he better not walk on the streets of New York without a bodyguard, even though he surely knows the President has secret service. The Blaz responded the only way he knows how, by saying he will sue, for one thing he truly knows in his role as mayor is to spend tax dollars which he has done mightily against his own constituency when he sent his city lawyers to protect crooked cops from divulging their records and against judges to have his developer favored zoning decisions repealed. Besides those things, Cuomo and the Blaz ain’t going to do shit to stop this defunding because they actually owe Trump for their current existence.  With the way Cuomo has been able to evade scrutiny from the feds over his lethal decision to put COVID-19 patients in nursing homes and then transfer them along with the residents to hospitals to protect their owners and investors who donated to the Luv Guv and with Trump firing former SDNY DA Preet Bharara who was investigating de Blasio’s pay to play fundraising graft in City Hall.

Even though it’s a big factor, Trump’s defunding memo isn’t just based on malice, revenge and his latent desire for a police state and his bogus justification about anarchy jurisdictions, but also on the weak and non-existent leadership of NYC and the other cities he targeted (that Ted Wheeler guy in Portland? now that’s a fucking big pussy). So a lot of blame should be dispensed all around. Which is how Donnie continues to thrive despite his criminal complacency and unpreparedness to protect his country from a pandemic that wound up killing 180,000 citizens and led to 20% of working people unemployed.

Trump is still a fucking dick for doing this though, NYC is getting broker and broker and that 7 billion (which is surprisingly little considering all the valuable real estate here) is essential for it’s solvency and overall security and he knows how vulnerable the city is. Trump’s sanctions against NYC will make the current environment under this “new normal” even worse and cause more businesses to go under than any rioting and street crime will do. If anything, these sanctions are just an extension of his slumlord tactics denying services to undesirable affordable renting tenants that he gleefully executed as a young real estate scion in the 80’s

Right now, Trump is running full speed to keep his current job and his base enjoys his condemnations against and endorsements of violence against the Black Lives Matter movement and their supporters. And since he no longer lives in the city where he made his billions and built his brand off his daddy’s second surname, it’s not a surprise he would rather let it rot in the New Bad Days just like in the old bad days when Ford wouldn’t bail NYC out.

You think he would have learned something from that history but as I said before, Trump doesn’t give a fuck.

Goodnight 41

Governor Cuomo’s Lethal Ill-Logistics

Declaration of damnation in Thomas Jefferson’s hometown; Monticello, New York.

New Normal, New York

Where does one begin to discuss the current global pandemic induced phenomenon and cult of personality that is the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo? Since he locked down the state back in mid-March as coronavirus cases grew by thousands and thousands and thousands, Mario’s son had become the chosen one; elder statesman of all things COVID-19 and the default rebuttal warrior against Donald Trump’s consistent, insistently brazen and meta-comical errors of the novel disease and how to fight it. (Bleach and sun anyone?)

Like the spiky red-pockmarked handball looking pathogen, Andrew has become quite the pop culture icon himself with his daily afternoon government issue polo shirt press briefings on the outbreak. It’s become as much national institution as the Price is Right used to be at 12 p.m. every day as snippets of his videos and images have gone viral; thoroughly giving his constituents and viewers across the country and the globe essential information about the contagion’s spread and the status of his state. His briefings have managed to even produce a spin off show via Fredo’s Chris Cuomo’s prime time “news” hour program on CNN. It’s quite a big ratings grabber despite the huge ass conflict this comes with as his kid brother “interviews” him about his brah governing the response and recovery while gushing about him in dreams and blatantly egging him to run for President.

About that. Because of all this attention, social media had dubbed and trended Andrew as #PresidentCuomo and corporate news grabbed onto to that to fill their webpages and hyperlinks with blanket speculation and suggestions about the COVID19 superstar to run for the white house too. Not to mention dozens of articles proclaiming how the suddenly hunky Cuomo is the boyfriend of America, but that’s just icky and gross so I’ll end it there.

Since this is supposed to be a devastatingly serious column,(note the header photo) but all that shit had to be prefaced to illustrate and elaborate how the goddamn Governor Cuomo does not deserve all these adulation and accolades or should still have a job right now regarding the consequences of his inaction and very suspect actions to stem the spread of the novel virus in his state besides lamely ostracizing people to wear masks.

As the days counted down to the cruelest April of our lifetime and humankind, Cuomo continued his daily briefings as a salve to his constituents and a reassurance to the nation following them as an alternative to Trump’s alternative facts.

Immediately at the start of the month the plague really came in. Yet here was the resilient and virile leader on the dais every afternoon in front of the camera, an exhibition of transparency reading out the morbid death tolls while quite oddly talking about flattening the curves as casualties started to mount. Yet the veneration levied to him by social and news media continued to shower on him…

…until he weaponized that veneration and adulation to shield himself

Flashback

Prior to his new found fame, Andrew Cuomo and his superego went to work on getting New York prepared for the outbreak. While he did order to close the schools and businesses deemed non-essential suspended until due notice, he waited almost a whole week to actually shut down the entire state. Because when Mayor Big Slow de Blasio wisely stole the San Francisco’s mayor’s idea to shelter in place 2 weeks after she instituted it, Cuomo blew that off for another 3 days so he can announce his own S.I.P. decree with the PAUSE initiative. So Cuomo didn’t want to shut down the state for the sole reason that HE had to name it. Which meant that state taxpayer time had to be used as the pathogen commuted through the five boroughs and upstate to come up with a FUCKING ACRONYM first to name it. That’s probably why it took 3 days, coming up with words to line up real clever initially is a rather tedious process.

When Governor Cuomo was queried about how the hospitals would handle the prospective (then inevitable and realized) meteoric rise of cases considering the insufficient amount of beds available due to dozens of hospitals going under in the past decade (two big examples being the St. Johns Hospital which is only an 8 minute bike ride from Elmhurst Hospital, which later became the epicenter of COVID-19 and the Peninsula Hospital in Rockaway Beach, abandoned and razed for “affordable housing”)  the governor reassured his state and the media gaggle that we had bountiful supplies and ample beds to handle the infected. Then New York and FEMA worked together to assemble triage hospitals across the five boroughs including a US Navy ship President Trump sent with much fanfare; But the nagging question is what will happen to the  nursing homes across the five boroughs and if the residents contract the virus; mostly the elderly, the most susceptible to perish from the insidious and tormenting virus.

Governor Cuomo did acknowledge that and showed valid reasoning by describing a scenario of COVID-19 and it’s effects on the elderly people as a fire going through dry grass. The problem is that days before Andrew made this frank observation, he and this guy he appointed to run the State Department of Health named Dr. Howard Zucker concocted a mandatory order for nursing homes and adult care centers to take in COVID-19 positive cases. But to make this edict sound more soothing and universally sentimental, Cuomo decided to name this executive order after his mother and Matilda’s law was enacted.ImageWhen April began on the weekend, about over 2,000 people died from the novel virus yet oddly the reported death counts from nursing homes were surprisingly low but it wouldn’t take long for the fire to grow into an inferno and spread through these privately managed hospice care centers like lava through soil.

A nursing home in East New York got hit with the virus so fast that the management there stored 10 dead people in a room on the fourth floor of the building and tried to keep the corpses cool by running the A.C. and left the windows open to prevent the stench of death from seeping out. In Cobble hill, 55 patients and residents died, leading to bodies being forklifted into big rig trailer trucks in broad daylight as hundreds of workers got infected. A nursing home in Flushing that was trying to cover up the body count while haphazardly trying to obscure the dying and dead enraged a man so much he threatened to kill everyone there. It got so extreme for one woman that she planned a late evening breakout to get her father out of poorly managed adult care center in Elmhurst.

As the amount of death in New York continued to mount, nursing home residents were dying by dozens yet the state’s tallying of the deceased amounted was suspiciously under-counted as deaths continued to pile by the hundreds as more New Yorkers got ill and tested positive for COVID-19. Hospitals were overwhelmed, especially the ones in lower area median income areas where most of the essential workers lived where COVID-19 attacked the hardest and fastest.

When pressed about these enormous discrepancy accounts of the dying and dead on his corona talk show and after nearly a month of his streaming videos of  updates plus all the information about COVID19 and his bureaucracy’s tenative response, suddenly the Governor blew a brain fart and claimed he didn’t know about the mandatory edict he signed that sent positive cases to nursing homes which he cloaked with the wholesome law named after his mom. Then his flunky Zucker weaselly demurred and feigned he hadn’t a clue either.

“I DON’T KNOW”

Cuomo’s obtuseness is striking considering that it wasn’t long ago that he gave himself   (with the help of an exasperated anemic Democrat partisan assembly and senate) expanse emergency executive powers which gave him the absolute power to sign Matilda’s Law in the first place. Even more striking is that the Covid King Of New York boasted that he alone was the government in a radio interview eight years before the novel virus manifested on this planet.

 

This is actually uncharacteristic of Matilda’s son, because like most comic book and movie villains he’s very intelligent, always cunning plus manipulative and ruthless and very cognitive and astute about the use of leverage and narrative. Who else would conjure up shit like shutting the government down to kill the bail reform laws, which would not have spared the health dept either. He also was toying with cutting 2 billion dollars of medicaid funding to the city and 400 million dollars from hospitals as the first COVID-19 fatalities were reported. Unfortunately, the senate and assembly meekly agreed to cutting 300 million from hospitals instead and decided to give Cuomo sole authority on budgeting. To compound these austerity cuts, they cut even deeper since Andy decided not to legalize pot and tax the obscenely wealthy again. Another strange thing The Luv Guv did was attempt to reject 6.7 billion dollars of federal grant money sent by Trump’s treasury to fund Medicaid as the outbreak engulfed NYC and state.

Surely with an ego the size of Niagara Falls wouldn’t effect the governor’s mindset that  much, especially since he’s been acting like a condescending know it all every afternoon on T.V.. But most of the press were speechless and allowed him to continue to feign ignorance, thus enabling and brightening his star power. But unbeknownst to Matilda’s son’s fans was that Gov. Cuomo was weaponizing his newfound fame to wield dickheaded power moves with his newfound divine authority the assembly gave him weeks earlier. What can be expected from a man who runs the state when he sent PPE’s to a NYCHA buildings and sent only four industrial size bottles of Andrew’s Prison Purell instead of individual bottles to each tenant, forcing  tenant leaders to distribute hand sanitizer door to door into bottles and plastic bags that the tenants had to come up. Some tenants reportedly cupped their hands to receive a personal amount. This was done despite the CDC recommendation to keep six feet apart from each other.

A few days later during one of his afternoon polo shirt chats, Matilda’s son appeared to stop giving a shit too after he got reminded of his edict and proclaimed that the nursing homes and other adult care centers had no choice to admit the infected from hospitals. To truly illustrate his decree, news reports surfaced that as COVID patients were being transferred to the nursing homes, piles of bodybags were delivered to them at the same time. Which would wind up immediately used in days or even hours. They also described these macarbe deliveries in the manifest as a PPE delivery! And the body bag deliveries continued until they were filled up with covid casualties every week as the state continued to avoid counting them.

Meanwhile as hospitals were reporting hundreds of people dying daily, residents at nursing homes continued to perish from the novel virus, but hiding the evidence of them was getting more taxing and even amateurish. At the Riverdale nursing home in the Bronx, it turned out 100 more residents died than what was initially reported. A nursing home in Washington Heights where 95 residents died from COVID-19 got so morbid that they put up tarp to cover the gate, vainly trying to hide trailers storing dead bodies inside. In a nursing home in Forest Hills, medication records were “doctored” and staffers were advised to write that the residents refused the medication that they never received.

The Cobble Hill home also exposed the narrative myths spewed by Cuomo and his health department bragging claims of their plentiful shipments to hospitals and adult care centers when a staffer told the hospice administrator that he had to conserve the PPE supply. But that fact was already exposed when nurses at a hospital told the whole world of government’s stinginess by donning garbage bags while Cuomo initially boasted of hospitals now debunked bountiful supply. The day when Matilda’s Son had to be accountable for his E.O. he pulled off a deflection that resembled Trump but with even less class by basically telling them to fuck off.. And also exempting himself from blame for the deaths from his executive order by reciting almost word for word what President said about the federal emergency stockpile when it came to getting PPE’s to nursing homes to New York by claiming it wasn’t his job to provide them either, even thought Cuomo’s New York runs a few senior homes. And even cheaply made expedient the federal PPE disbursement that caused this. He also conveniently blamed the nursing homes he saddled with caring for the contracted patients and vulnerable residents for not being able to handle the situation Andrew dealt them with as he wondered aloud why didn’t they transfer them to other homes and tripled down blamed the nursing homes for the data inaccuracies of the dead.

This was the most brazen attempt at absolute absolution probably ever made regarding the hundreds of preventable deaths in homes in the five boroughs. Even though the homes didn’t have PPEs or COVID tests available to prevent and prepare to defend against the virus, just like the city and state hospitals, nursing homes were desperately lacking the PPE’s and tests to protect the clients and themselves, which led to a high absence of workers. Cuomo’s executive order descriptively banned relatives to see their Mother and fathers and other kin as well. deftly obfuscate these heinous statistics and exacerbate their needless deaths. Not to mention the fact that coronavirus tests were scarce in the city and infirm people have no immediate or easy access to them.

Because of the state rules about keeping relatives from visiting to stem contagion, this extended to how staffers handled concerned phone calls from relatives as they kept their calls brief or kept them on hold as they inquired if the resident got tested, got contracted or died from coronavirus. People continued to wait in despair until Cuomo was forced to sign an executive order mandating all next of kin must be informed in 24 hours thanks to a law President Trump enacted (of all fucking people). Cuomo knew damn well that the elderly were most the most susceptible to die. Covid-19 was the accelrant that burned through dry grass, then Cuomo can be accused of involuntary (or voluntary) arson. The ban on visitors to prevent contagion was easy to exploit by these homes because no visitors equals no witnesses.

But when it came time to challenge President Trump with taking in patients for the USS Comfort and the Javits Center, Cuomo punted and rejected the pleas of nursing homes who told his health dept. that they couldn’t handle the crushing inflow of COVID patients like in cobble hill where over 50 people died as hundreds of workers got infected. Another big mystery was that there were 10 other temporary hospitals set up to take in COVID-19 patients in case the initial projections of people infected would manifest, yet the city and state didn’t bother to open them.

https://impunitycity.files.wordpress.com/2020/08/7f7ca-triage.png

 

Sure in retrospect it turned out the city didn’t need them (and wasted millions of tax dollars to build them to boot) but if there was no edict to force nursing homes to accept covid patients, these MASH units would have came in handy. Even if they wouldn’t have filled all those beds, but they probably would have came in handy being that a way to stem the spread is by distancing.

Another caveat of the mandate was that the homes weren’t to allow the relatives to visit their residents. for the reason to prevent the virus to spread. But from who to whom? If there were tests, the visitors would have took them as would the residents (who would have been sent to the hospitals or isolated) But apparently that regulation somehow included withholding information from the relatives of clients.

Also, because of the continuing difficulties in getting tests to the state (and getting access to them) Who knows if any of the convicts released from Rikers had COVID-19 and in the mad rush to stop the spread on the island’s prisons, the city sent those patients to nursing homes and shared rooms with the residents. As if the facilities staff getting infected wasn’t hazardous enough.

Myriad factors were brazenly on display in the homes as nurses were being trained on the spot because of under staffing, and the infirm laid on their beds like carcasses covered with bed sores. And it’s a bit difficult for a nursing home to transfer a patient they can’t handle when hundreds of other nursing homes are poorly run and maintained also.  It’s a crapshoot catch22.

When suspicions by the corporate local news and public funded media started getting aroused about the body counts in nursing homes, the State DOH commissioner Zucker was frantically trying to get the death stats in a hurry while also trying to semantically separate the deaths occurring in the homes or when they were sent to hospitals. After the alarming amounts were suddenly known, which was about over 1,000 at the time, Cuomo decided to rescind the mandate of the March 25 edict and then he ordered hospitals not to send COVID patients to the homes and then decided to enact fines for mistreatment violations that most of these nursing homes have been getting away with impunity for years/ And it wouldn’t be apropos if he didn’t give an nauseating obtuse defense about it as he remarked about the danger of spreading the disease that was obvious to him before he commanded the homes to take in ill people infected with a novel virus.

And then the covid chickens came home to roost, as suddenly there was more transparency of Gov. Cuomo’s lethal ill-logistics.

Cuomo’s NYS Department Of Health investigators hardly regulated the nursing homes or even went to them as well and when they actually did inspect them they gave them positive grades even when it was found that hundreds of residents died in there. It must have been interesting how the nursing home admins got a head’s up of an inspector’s arrival so they can turn up the A.C. in a room with ten corpses.

The sick thing is that nursing home administrators were telling the state they were willing to send these patients to other homes as Matilda’s son was cynically advising them too but it was all about CHOA (covering his own ass). The elderly weren’t the victims of bad policy fuckups but of the circumstances of nature according to the Luv Guv. But these ill-logistics fly in the face of logic considering that positve Covid patients were already being sent to homes because of the mandate.

Matilda’s son also blamed it on everything and everyone else based on the genesis of the disease to deny everything about his utter lack of preparedness and laizze-faire approach to the outbreak that was about to and did happen in the state he lords over. Sounding more preposterous and hyperbolic than basement dwelling conspiracy nuts by describing the pathogen as getting on a plane and nobody blowing a horn to let him know not to kill his constituents. Which is about as loony as the theory that the novel virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan like it was a Frankenstein monster.

But the real monster was the state mandate that Cuomo signed forcing the homes to take in the infected, which his Department of Health tried to throw into the memory hole.

And it turns out this mandate was a collusive operation by Cuomo’s administration and  a consortium (or a legion) of hospital and nursing home executives, board members and administrators called the GYNHA, the Greater New York Hospital Association which by citing the novel coronavirus, granted immunity protection to doctors, physicians and nurses…and also nursing home executives, board members and administrators. Which stemmed from a $5,000,000 donation from the (GYNHA) a consortium of health and hospice care executives and their lobbyists to the state democratic committee (which Andy is in charge of too) and towards Cuomo’s 2018 reelection campaign. So it looks like Cuomo had to return their little favor by conflating nursing home CEO’s and VP’s and private equity CFO’s with frontline working nurses and doctors by including them too. It’s more like a law mandating impunity against lawsuits.

GYNHA!GnYHA

 

This immunity, while clearly meant to absolve all those on the frontlines trying to save people ailing and perishing from COVID-19 which was nigh impossible most of the time considering the thousands who died, ultimately wound up acting as immunity and even an impunity law for the higher-ups sitting in their offices and board rooms whose decisions could have probably made a difference in bringing down the body count or exacerbating it.

Also tucked into this mandate was stipulations that freed hospitals and nursing homes from all liability of any malpractice suits because of conditions from the pandemic based on the speculated amount of cases coming in but also conveniently and disturbingly included a cavaet concerning the PPE’s and ventilators that were in short supply which actually happened during the first days of the health crisis, so thehigher-ups of hospice care centers will be immune from any investigation during a disaster which did not need to be set to any standards because of the nature of the contagion’s violent spread.

Then he ordered hospitals not to send COVID patients to the homes and enacted fines for mistreatment violations that most of these nursing homes have been getting away with impunity for years and were protected thanks to Cuomo’s evil incarnate edict and from the incessant lobbying and gladhanding from the private equity firms and LLC’s that own and run them . And it wouldn’t be apropos if he didn’t give an nauseating obtuse defense about it as he remarked about the danger of spreading the disease that was obvious to him before he commanded the homes to take in ill people infected with a novel virus.

It’s logical that Cuomo would want to protect these homes and do obligatory toothless investigations for AG James to gloss over since he gave 850 million to the worst nursing care providers after the consortium donated millions to him and the Democrat Party state 4 years ago, giving them carte blanche to juke the stats of COVID-19 casualties under their watch.

 

During all this machinating, Governor Cuomo continued his self-aggrandizing daily briefer shows and continued to take COVID-19 mulligans about his grave decisions and deflections of his responsibility of them, continuing to blame the federal letter agencies and the guy in charge of them President Trump. Then Cuomo sunk to blaming God and Mother Nature when he got bored of blaming Donnie over and over again, and at this time King Andrew was starting to grow weary of his daily media outings even after all the fame it brought him, which included the cover of the Rolling Stone (shows how we don’t have real rock stars anymore) as questions about his governing through the pandemic and the issue of his nursing home mandate got more probing as he behaved like a jaded sociopath.

 

But Cuomo didn’t waver and kept up his plausible deniability defense in the face of them. Because of his emergency powers legislated to him, he was still untouchable and his regal aura let them know it. Cuomo’s remarked about how he did everything he could to save COVID-19 patients that wound up mass killing the elderly and infirm and recited it multiple times that he even challenged for an investigation. To the weakened press corps there of course, only limited to a few questions.

 

Then he decided to end the daily briefings for good and made sure the last one was literally too brief for any press inquiries. As he proclaimed that the virus was crushed with the same vigor and legitimacy as when Bush announced the mission was accomplished in Iraq after two months in 2003. But he still does the weekly briefings, which he and his administration used to push their narrative as Matilda’s son refused to repent for his fatal executive order and waxed fatalistic and philosophical about the deceased as if it was expected, and heinously dismissing the carnage his decision caused as an inevitability.

Speaking of narrative, it should be dutifully noted that Cuomo hired the services of McKinsey And Company after he passed the April budget with the nursing home impunity law, for the reason Cuomo claimed to offset the misinformation about COVID-19 coming from the Trump Administration and mainly from Trump’s mouth (even though they had their own Covid rock star in Dr. Anthony Fauci, who Andy admires and trusts).In fact, McKinsey has obviously been scripting King Andrew’s Covid briefings since they got to Albany and their presence and expertise possibly came in handy as pressure mounted for bipartisan demands by congressional representatives and New York state assembly members and senators for an independent investigation, Cuomo and his toady Dr. Zucker assembled an investigation of themselves by themselves. Which absolutely absolved all those in charge of  the under-staffed nursing homes and conveniently placed the blame on the essential workers who got infected or were asymptomatic. Everything about this report is CTA (cover their asses) spin to absolve the Governor, Dr. Zucker, the Department of Health and all the suits running the nursing homes, adult care centers and assisted living facilities from all responsibility. Cuomo and his gang couldn’t have not known about the glut of nursing homes in his state that were consistently getting health and safety violations. Particularly since a bulk of these nursing homes are owned and “run” by private equity firms, notorious for being the most mismanaged, uninhabitable and blighted facilities in the nation and are the source for about a 1/5 of the U.S. deaths from coronavirus.

The funny thing is that after this thorough bleaching of the recidivists running these negligent nursing homes and Cuomo’s immunity/impunity law protecting them, is that it was collectively rejected by families of the 6,600 deceased and skeptical journalists and the G-board warriors on social media aggressively demanding better data and answers. About that 6,600 deceased, that was the exact amount of patients that were transferred from hospitals to the nursing homes and it’s surely possible that it could be more than that, because vacancies at New York’s hospice care centers doubled since the pandemic started and Cuomo’s state Health Dept. COVID-19 edict was authorized. That’s about over 13,000 people made expendable by the state, all under the edict and rubric of preventing the spread of the contagion to save lives.

That is some macabre kismet right there, which a man who had to say rescue his father from one of them to remark about Cuomo’s mandate that it was the “dumbest decision by anyone can make if he wanted to kill people”, so you don’t have to be Perry Mason or even Quincy to deduce how this immunity law can be manipulated for nefarious means. (Although Dexter definitely could have seen through this lethal policy). 

Cuomo and Dr. Zucker continue to play rope a dope with the news media and legislators over the true data of the nursing home casualties, protected by the emergency laws enacted to battle the novel virus, even in the face of new revelations coming out about their lethal ill-logistics. A report that exposed how gravely ill residents got transferred from nursing homes to two hospitals in Albany were sent there with DNR (do not resuscitate) orders and wound up dying at those facilities, almost a week before Cuomo decided to rescind the March 25 mandate.

All of this resembles a criminal conspiracy by the Cuomo and Zucker and the State DOH along with the owners and executives and the private equity and hedge fund backers from the sanction plausible deniability mandate to shuffle around the still surviving bodies in the nursing homes so the mortality rates and stats get juked to give the appearance that they were being well managed. It was a conscious decision to manipulate and undercount the covid19 death tolls by getting them out of the homes so they would count them again when they arrived and eventually perished at the nearest hospital.

There’s another clue to find suspicion in Cuomo’s condescending briefings whenever he justifies his lethal decision and ill-logistics, and that is the state budget, which was 6 billion in the red. Instead of raising taxes on the ultra-wealthiest New Yorkers and legalizing pot to get some back in the state’s coffers, the deaths of over 13,000 speculated deaths of elderly and infirm people probably saved a bundle of funding from the Medicare Cuomo was planning on cutting from the last budget. Another reason why Cuomo’s health dept. desired to play musical chairs with the nursing home beds from the hospital transfers was to get more federal money from a tweak to Medicare laws to offer financial aid for nursing homes to take in new patients. Homes that took in COVID-19 patients were paid four times as much to house than the residents that were already residing in and depended on them to live. So it wasn’t just the donor cash that inspired the March 25 edict, April fool’s day immunity law enactment and neoliberal ill-intent management scheme, but the filthy lucre they would re-accrue and gain from the losses of these lives and downsizing of the essential workforce. And since Cuomo’s state has to pick up half the tab of Medicaid, those costs would surely go down immensely if tens of thousands of recipients just drop dead in a span of a month. This falls directly in line with Cuomo’s department of Health and his flunky Dr. Zucker’s early weaponization of #COVID19 and pandemic guidelines when they ordered EMT’s to refuse resuscitating patients without a pulse. An EMT was quoted that all the patients she was picking up were being sent to die at the hospitals where she was taking them too.

Despite this mountain of expose’s growing day by day, Cuomo vehemently refuses to admit the mistakes he made that led to the confirmed 6,600 deaths in his state and (also the over 30,000 total from his delays to shut the state down). Instead the Luv Guv responds with building a mountain of his own. Which he mightily unveiled with his staffers and displayed for the press that he continues to treat like a bunch of five-year-olds.

This mountain would wind up as a model for a bespoke old-timey poster he would release a few weeks later that would document his metaphorical and dementedly tone-deaf take on how the coronavirus ravished the state he governs and how the curve flattened. With stupid little images, his own banal quotes and platitudes and little inside jokes for the groupie viewers of his daily briefings.

As usual with Cuomo and with his criminally incompetent(and just plain criminal) response to the pandemic, his massive ego and  does a poor job covering up the actual facts and leaves this document of self-aggrandizement open to easy analysis and re-interpretation. And the one obvious thing that stands out are the absence of the March 25th edict forcing nursing homes to take in COVID patients, the follow up Matilda’s Law shielding them from witnesses by banning relatives of the residents and the immunity law protecting hospice care centers from regulations and investigations of wrong doing, artfully depicted as little scrolls of paper with an feather pen and an inkwell beside it. And if Cuomo’s depiction of his bullshit mountain is suppose to be a symbol of victory showing the curve flattening from the peak, it more accurately resembles a mass grave from hiding thousands of bodies buried in a short period of time, say like about 50 days.

Another thing about the poster is the rendition of Cuomo and his team on the bottom, who are not socially distanced nor wearing masks for some reason.

https://news.artnet.com/app/news-upload/2020/07/Screen-Shot-2020-07-15-at-12.56.24-PM.png

Andrew in a ironic attempt at modesty labels himself as 56 and in an hilarious display of defensive insouciance, labels his DOH toady Zucker as “Dr. Knows Best”. The one to Andy’s left is Robert Muerica, who is employed as the state’s budget director but is more like Cuomo’s yes and hatchet man and the impeccably and flatteringly drawn lady to his right is his secretary and top aide “Magnificent” Melissa de Rosa.

Emperor Cuomo’s regaling of Secretary de Rosa is not without merit, because she’s actually the biggest player in Cuomo’s administration that is not himself. Besides being a reliable women’s empowerment figure for Cuomo to site, Magnificent Melissa is an empowering figure in her own right. Cuomo’s branding of her makes her sound like a ladies champion wrestler too, and her status plus her motivation makes it self-evident, plus she seems like a very scary person too. And her traits and influence are manifest in the obfuscation and management and profiteering of the COVID-19 nursing home crisis. Because Magnificent Melissa de Rosa has 3 relatives that are lobbyists for GYNHA and their firm donated 40 large to Matilda’s Son re-election campaign themselves and she was having sit-downs with all the higher-ups as the outbreak was raging across the state and while COVID19 patients were being sent back and forth on the nursing home and hospital pipeline to manipulate the statistics while under the optics of aiding the frontline workers with PPE’s, of which they didn’t get until it was too late when the curve sloped down the mountain.

Cuomo, Dr Knows Best Zucker, Magnificent Melissa and all the pandemic profiteers keep moving the goalposts and plausibly denying their culpability and their complicity for getting away with their systemic human being lawnmower care system. But since Cuomo is basically the King of New York now thanks to the pandemic he should beef up his staff to continue his narrative and brand. Now I know that’s what he hired McKinsey and Co. for but Andy should reconsider contracting a mutli-million dollar agency and employ a man named Kenneth Turnage, a city planner from the East Bay enclave of Antioch in Califoria who would be very capable of messaging Cuomo’s edict without mincing words and who’s currently available after being fired from the board for writing a very harsh manifesto to deal with the elderly (and the homeless) while coronavirus ravaged the state on the facebook.

Right off the bat, Kenny describes the effects on the most vulnerable humans bedridden in nursing homes as a fire that burns the old trees, brush and weeds; which is more hauntingly graphic than Cuomo’s own depiction as a fire through dry grass. While Cuomo’s analogy is more benign, they both conflate old people as kindle that needs to be eradicated.

“…the World has been introduced to a new phrase Herd Immunity which is a good one. In my opinion we need to adapt a Herd Mentality. A herd gathers it ranks, it allows the sick, the old, the injured to meet its natural course in nature.”

Funny, because what that vulture proffered to his social media brood is practically the blue print of Cuomo’s edict and the subsequent Immunity/Impunity Law for hospice care suits, because they herded all the positive covid-19 patients into the homes and care centers and God and Mother Nature took over.  Really, if there is a deputy position under Commish Zucker, Kenny would seamlessly fit in. To his credit, Cuomo isn’t that crass and abominable. But like Kenny, Cuomo thinks of his constituents as products and statistics, which reflects his hiring of McKinsey to manage his narrative and brand as a leader in the fight against Covid.

There’s more. Kenny goes on by justifying how expendable the aged and destitute are by extolling that there will be less Social Security cash to dole out and significantly bring down health expenses. The latter which falls in line with Cuomo’s obsession to cut Medicaid and funding for hospitals and the zeal and sneakiness how they were transporting them in the hospital/nursing home pipeline and the legislation and ratification that enabled all of it. Then Turnage mused how the novel virus would rid the burden of the still growing homeless population on the streets as well and if they and the aged were to gathered in a herd the quicker the virus will work to get society back on it’s feet faster and resources will be more plentiful and there will be less work for the nursing homes and hospitals to do. And in the homes case, that would be easy with more vacancies in them. Ironically, if there is another outbreak come autumn and winter, with the tens of thousands of new vacancies in nursing homes there is more room for another meteoric rise in COVID19 cases and the all the fed money and profits will roll right in for the nursing home execs and their private equity and hedge fund owners. And it’s not like the state or city are building any new hospitals, because they fucking aren’t and don’t plan too.

 
As Governor/Emperor Cuomo continues to belittle the press and officials for questioning his policies, management, machinating and tactics while gaslighting his adoring fans and partisan Democrat believers, and as his toady Dr Knows Obfuscation Zucker hides behind the emergency edicts he concocted, and as the press is limited by social distancing guidelines preventing them from getting closer to them, the toxic narrative of Cuomo’s COVID-19 defense and his lethal ill-logistics will proceed without interference and consequence. As Cuomo will continue to lord New York and weaponize the pandemic for himself and the sith lords of the hospice care industrial complex like a omniscient and dominant dark force until a vaccine for the novel virus is finally released.
 
Hopefully, a day will come when the walls close in on Cuomo the way they closed in on the victims of the genocide his policies caused. But as long as COVID19 still remains in the ether, the force of Cuomo’s power and celebrity will remain and get bigger.
 
For now, New York will remain not only under the existential threat of the insidious virus, but also under the grasp and force of Governor Cuomo next decisive acts.
 
Wear a mask, be safe. And take records of everything.
 
 

NYC’s First Lady Is A Tax Boondoggle

chirliehubrisThe Miss-Appropriation of city funding, Chirlane McCray de Blasio

City Hall, Downtown Manhattan, New York

Mayor de Blasio is in quite a pickle. He hasn’t been able to get aid from the state and because congress couldn’t agree to a goddamn stimulus, the Blaz can’t get federal funding despite all his pathetic begging and pleading and probably compounded by his asinine decision to paint Black Lives Matter in front of the President’s luxury tower. So the city’s budget ax is going to come down on a lot of administration departments and city services.

Except for one…

THE CITY

First Lady Chirlane McCray is employing a shadow staff of at least six full-time workers who don’t appear on her official roster — with their salaries paid by other city agencies or their roles obscured within the wider office of her husband, Mayor Bill de Blasio, government sources say and records show.

McCray, who is mulling a run for Brooklyn borough president, volunteers her time and is not employed by the city government. But she has built up a portfolio of work that includes a billion-dollar endeavor to improve the city’s mental health services, known as ThriveNYC.

Her staff now stands at 14, sources say — at a time that the mayor is raising the specter of laying off up to 22,000 municipal workers in October because of a pandemic-driven budget gap.

Asked for a list of her current staff members, McCray’s office last month provided the names of eight full-time employees who together collect roughly $1.1 million in salaries through the office of the mayor.

But according to current and former employees in the Mayor’s Office, as well as public records, McCray’s staff count has actually been 15 throughout much of 2020, with a collective payroll that’s closer to $2 million. A recent departure brought the staff ranks down to 14.

That count excludes other city and nonprofit employees who support McCray on specific projects that she oversees — including private fundraising on behalf of the city government, managing the Gracie Mansion mayoral residence and spearheading ThriveNYC.

The six current off-roster workers include Felicia Lee, a $140,000-a-year communications advisor employed since April 2018, whose salary is paid by the city Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The salary of a $130,000 director of policy, Grace Choi, hired in January 2019, is paid by the city Department of Social Services, according to city government sources and public records.

McCray’s 2019 public schedule shows both Lee and Choi regularly attended meetings with her — including a January 2019 “Team Lunch” at La Masa restaurant in The Bronx.

Yet officials in McCray’s office did not name those two staffers among the eight full-time employees.

McCray’s social media manager, who has been working for her for two years, also was not listed on the staff roster provided to THE CITY. Public records show she is on the payroll of the city’s Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications.

The sources and records show McCray also hired a $70,000 videographer in February, whose name was not on the list of staff members provided to THE CITY by her office.

The videographer, whose work for McCray includes a “Baking with the First Lady” clip that was posted during the height of the pandemic in early April, is listed as a Department of Health employee in city records.

Yesiree, de Blasio’s co-mayor wife’s own cosplay administration will evade getting touched while over 22,000 other city workers not in Chirlie’s little circle will get lawnmowered. What’s interesting is how Chirlie’s redundancy angels are set up in de Blasio’s administration in various city service departments where cuts are certain to go down, which are all associated with their particular skill sets and even brazenly with the NYC first lady’s videographer as a DOH worker, the way her husband is doing this is pure gangster shit like putting mafia soldiers on no-show building contractor payrolls or even a less ethical version of musical chairs.

There shouldn’t be a shadow of a doubt anymore about this shadow government. The Blaz has assembled a political campaign team in city hall for his damn wife just like he ran an illicit 501 c 4 PAC Campaign For One New York fund in there that was feigned to support progressive policies like Pre-K and affordable housing while it was mostly exploited to dole out services favorably to his real estate donors. And is shamelessly doing this despite the still existential threat from and economic uncertainty induced from COVID-19 and found a way to exploit the pandemic to integrate it with Chirlie’s boondoggle Thrive program, which has turned out to be a bigger slush fund.

And what about ThriveNYC? It’s now going on 2 billion dollars in money spent squandered and it has not produced any results on it’s efficacy and efficiency in providing mental health for New Yorkers who truly need it because ThriveNYC doesn’t even target the people who could use mental health aid, which are the homeless, people with mental afflictions, victims of domestic violence and abuses while incarcerated in prisons. In it’s first 3 years of it’s existence all it produced were banal ads reaching out to people with work anxiety and a hotline number that barely got an answer from people.

But First Lady de Blasio has been a frivolous spending festering boil in city hall for quite a while, because her idiot husband basically turn her role into an defacto/proxy administrative government office. Not only is she the boss of the ThriveNYC boondoggle, but the Blaz also appointed her as chairwoman of the Mayor’s Fund To Advance New York City, the 25-year-old city government instituted “non-profit” entity where massive donations from real estate developers with business for the city plus other rich, powerful and even famous citizens of New York contribute and also sit on the board with her. (Remember that the Blaz was soliciting cash for CONY while this sanctioned slush fund already existed.). And if you think it’s a conflict of interest to disqualify her, wrong, because the first lady is a volunteer servant and not a paid employee, which is how the Conflicts of Interest Board approved her. Which made her the ultimate “agent of the city”

The thing with Chirlie is that like her stupid husband, they spend like gambling addicts with money that doesn’t belong to them like the city’s largesse, thinking that the more they piss away expecting another jackpot. But since NYC’s first lady has been watching piles and piles of money go in and out of city hall from her “volunteer” position, she’s obviously feels entitled to it herself thinks she can put her greedy hands in the city largesse till and spend a few billions that no one would notice.

She is in many ways the Blaz’s nepotism parasite hire version of what Jared Kushner is to President Trump, given many duties and responsibilities but absolutely unskilled at how to do them. Although in Chirlie’s case, she’s been very adept on how to weaponize her position and ruse as a volunteer to promote herself as Jared utilizes his position to obscenely enrich his wife, stepfather’s and his own family’s fortunes with the policies he steers for the nation.

As for accountability for Chirlie’s ThriveNYC profligacy, good luck getting answers or even documentation about their costs and how it vaporized. The thing with ThriveNYC is that it’s like a startup tech company, all hype ad gloss and filled with people who don’t have a clue what they are doing pushing a product that has no substance while wasting and pissing tons of investment money. When the product is a bureaucracy and that money invested by taxpayers.

But now with the city going broke and services being cut leading to dilapidated park space and garbage piling on the streets to go along with the rise in crime and scarcity of real affordable housing and homelessness during this new depression, NYC’s first lady continues to be a money devouring parasite in City Hall and pussy-whipped de Blasio will not and will find ways not to mention how he’s sacrificing his employees to finance his fucking wife’s delusional political ambitions and still useless ThriveNYC program which is nothing but a patronage mill and hangout for Chirlane’s sorority friends.

Another thing about Chirlie is that her presence is pronounced and induced in City Hall because the de Blasio is a fucking idiot who has absolutely no idea how to govern and apparently he’s dependent on her for ideas, which is why he’s contrived this political posse for her and splayed them out in different departments. Because the Blaz knows that Chirlie is his meal ticket to still remain a somewhat relevant politician in New York City and having her as the Brooklyn Borough President, which is just a rubber stamp redundancy position itself, will enable them to continue to enjoy the bennies and perks that comes with, which will translate well with their Park Slope home property values. There’s no way this Brooklyn power couple is going to let a pandemic cockblock that.

It’s time defund and maybe cancel Chirlane before this city gets even more broke.
