Housing Inequity, Death And Tax Breaks: A Tale Of Two Queens Areas

Astoria Houses

Thanksgiving, the symbolic holiday where all beings partake in communal gratitude and partake in sharing of the bountiful harvest of food and shelter. But on the east and west sides of Queens, it’s a theory that’s as good as dead.

An apartment building at The Astoria Houses are currently without gas and tenants have been without heat and hot water for a month. Despite the typical dragging of responsive service from NYCHA management to restore their utility they pay rent for, elected officials have been comparably unresponsive. This craven indifference continued until it got the attention of PIX News and a visit from streaming independent news channel Status Coup when a charity group were serving trays of hot food on catering tables at the front entrance at the building with the gas outage.

Then a few days later, a non-profit organization Queens Together arrived tagged along by elected officials arrived to bring some charity of their own. District City Councilman Costa Costantidas, House Representative Carolyn Maloney and newly elected Queens Borough President Donovan Richards arrived with bags of food, PPE’s and 48 crockpots for all the tenants deprived of gas services from the city’s biggest slumlord NYCHA, who supplied their vulnerable residents with single burner hot plates for sustenance.

While crockpots are an improvement over the cheap ass hot plates the tenants it still an immensely poor substitute for action that’s expected from elected officials. (While Rep. Crowley above quipped that a “single-burner hotplate is simply not a solution”, a crockpot is barely an improvement either. At least they will be able to boil water faster to bathe and wash dishes with) Because after their cameo appearances the gas still remained shut down. That three of them showed up so late to aid their constituents in need and come by with crockpots to do a photo op instead of demanding accountability from NYCHA only validated how insignificant their presence was despite their status as lawmakers.

And these lawmakers were just as invisible when it came to the city’s policy for new development that still goes wanting by hundreds of thousands of residents; because a mere 5 blocks north from the Astoria Houses, de Blasio’s NYC Housing program is debuting and opened the lottery for their latest “affordable housing” building with one and two bedrooms with rents ranging from $2,050 to $2,500, all set up for a lucky person or couple earning between 70 and 130 large.

But the luckiest person or LLC who/that developed this tower got a nice 421-a tax exemption from the city for being philanthropic enough to set aside 20-30% of these apartments from this lux building for higher income earning housing starved folks. Who knows how much of the city’s largess went to this developer that could have went to a get a new boiler sooner at Astoria Houses. I bet it would have bought a lot of crockpots.

Even though those donated crockpots look nice, what are people going to do if the power goes out? Or if those crockpots are defective? The only thing Costa, Carolyn and Donnie and that foodie non-profit contributed besides marginal aid for the 48 tenants still without gas utilities were nice optics for themselves.(While Rep. Crowley above quipped that a “single-burner hotplate is simply not a solution”, a crockpot is barely an improvement either. The most they can do with them is be able to boil water faster to bathe and wash dishes with. It’s just another remnant of neoliberal based civic policies that are starving essential services for the vulnerable.

Meanwhile across the river in Flushing, an expansive swath of luxury hyper-development by a filthy toxic creek is being planned and vociferously lobbied and pushed by a Chinese real estate consortium, departing term limited councilman Peter Koo and tainted community board leadership who have a conflict of interest with the land grab (and will resort to violence and intimidation to get this approved) that the city is eager to fast track. It’s layout includes behemoth towers and hotels with a morsel of “affordable” apartments for the consortium to cash in on the sweet 421a break.

Even though a few other “affordable” luxury towers have already been planted and another in it’s nascent skeletal phase, presumably the developers and the city are all champing at the bit to get this done because they are building these towers to provide equity to low income earning people in desperate need for housing, even if that amount is menial, and to “revive” the neighborhood, even though it’s one of the highest populated neighborhoods in Queens and arguably the busiest. Naturally, this hyper-development that’s being steamrolled has been met with stiff resistance and frequent protests.

But it’s a lot busier on the low end these days in Flushing thanks to COVID19. With 20% of NYC citizens unemployed since the contagion claimed over 30,000 lives and suspended and destroyed small businesses since the first lockdown began in March, lines for a food pantry run by La Journada go on for blocks and blocks. And blocks. And blocks. These thousands of people might not have gas outages at their homes, but it’s clear they have to prioritize rent over food because of their existential economic stasis to keep themselves sheltered.

As for the non-sheltered, the homeless population in Flushing as well as most of Eastern Queens continues to amass. Although the city Department Of Homeless Services policy’s past reliance on hotels to shelter people has become a necessity because of the pandemic, many homeless people still prefer to sleep rough on the sidewalks or parks and in inclement weather than to stay in hotel shelters that aren’t safe from violence or infection. Which led to this horrific sight nearby a public housing building, when a passerby Pedro Rodriguez found a homeless man frozen dead in a fetal position sheltered by a makeshift shelter made of cardboard boxes furnished with a pillow and blanket underneath him.

Pedro Rodriguez Facebook

Housing and food insecurity and the existential fear of being penniless and dying on the street surely shouldn’t be happening in the wealthiest country in the world and with the Dow Jones at 30,000.

It surely shouldn’t be happening at all in the greatest city in the world. With a Democrat majority with alleged progressive values that were elected and appointed to government offices. As this pandemic has exposed even more regarding housing in New York City, these officials inaction has enabled these neoliberal based civic policies prioritizing the needs of a fantasized populace than the one that already exists and all their superficial actions establishes them as the posers they are, and the ramifications from them are leaving devastation, depression and death in it’s wake. The difference now is that they no longer are capable of obscuring it.

Because while Thanksgiving comes only once a year, the laws enacted by fauxgressives favoring the developer overlords assures that everyday is Black Friday for public housing residents, the working poor, the aged and the destitute of Queens and the rest of the five boroughs.

 

 

 

 

The New York City Lockdown Follies

Starring: The Punk Ass and The Dumb Ass

New Normal, New York

The recent announcement of the lockdown of the city schools and it’s undetermined re-opening coinciding with the marginal rise of coronavirus infections among the citizenry has led to a veritable collision of worlds involving our two executive officials of the state and city of New York, Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio; exposing again the depthless void of partnership  between the two men and their administrations and the back and forth deferring of accountability regarding the economic and societal impacts that are being disrupted by the pandemic.

Beginning with the megalomaniac tin horn autocrat in Albany.

Immediately after fielding the first question from reporter Jimmy Vikeland about imminent public school closings in New York City based on the ague vagaries of Cuomo’s color coated area datas where COVID-19 is mostly spread to reinforce restrictions, the governor’s eyes bulged and accused the intrepid reporter of speaking untoward him with an “obnoxious tone” which the insecure governor reciprocated  with his trademark condescending tone and proceeded to spew a fusillade of condescending retorts and juvenile mimicries to go along with his indignant accusations against Vikeland’s credibility. When another reporter got rightly offended with how he insulted Vikeland, Cuomo let him and his constituency know that he doesn’t give a shit what he thinks about the press’s questions regarding his pandemic policy.

Cuomo continued to respond to other reporters with self-righteous indignation and unadulterated hubris because they wouldn’t accept his gaslighting as gospel, considering that the luvguv knew that Mayor de Blasio was going to close the schools the very second that the 3% infection threshold was achieved. This outburst was a total 180 degree turn from the measured and more informed response about the closings that Cuomo said a few days earlier when he pointed out that if the infection rates were low in the schools compared to the test results from the general population, it wouldn’t justify the closures and he mused that schools could be a safer environment from contagion than being at home. Which makes Cuomo’s sudden adamant tantrum about the city shutting down the schools so full of shit because he has the power to shut down the schools which he did when the virus first took hold of the city.

Another thing which makes his freak out suspect is that he has ruled New York with a paternalistic iron fist since Albany gave him his unquestioned emergency executive powers back in March. But suddenly with the schools he has been doing his damnest to disassociate himself from them, preferring to let Mayor de Blasio handle them.  Plus Cuomo was actually told by de Blasio that he decided to shut down the schools before he held his press conference and subsequent tirade and blatantly misinforming the press of his knowledge.

The worst thing about this disgraceful display and his inner contempt towards the press that wasn’t executed by the exiting POTUS is that Cuomo is continuing to exploit the social distancing protocols against the press trying to make him accountable for his policy decisions (or in this case, his non-decision). The governor/biographer is fortunate he has to deal with professionals with limited access and time to be around him while the pandemic is having a resurgence. He may not be so lucky when the vaccines are approved and the six feet barricades and face mask rules get rescinded, because Cuomo is due for another verbal lashing…

As for the worst mayor of NYC and any other city in the last century, the way de Blaz condescends to the press inquiring about his COVID responses is comparably polite. Instead of yelling at reporters he meekly dismisses their questions with deflections and brazen lies. And because of the pandemic guidelines, he doesn’t even convey any effort when he gaslights them about his policies because he won’t let the press do their jobs in the same room with him and they can only access him and ask questions over the phone.

And the Blaz actually has valid reason to be standoffish, the list of how he royally fucked up the pandemic response would result in a scroll that would transverse the planet about 3 times (going with the 3% lockdown measure theme here). But regarding the schools, de Blasio, along with his comic relief DOE Commissioner Carranza, were screwing around for months planning the new school year to adjust for the pandemic.

His rollout of the remote learning program was and continues to be a disaster, especially for the poor and homeless children with the distribution of faulty computer pads forcing them to rely on the tiny screens of cellphones to learn. That’s if they even get reception for it, being that these lower area median income neighborhoods don’t have free wifi.

After a few weeks of delays, the schools have been open and the blended learning program seem to be working until the weather got chillier and positive cases began to rise. Predictably de Blasio waited till the last second to warn parents about shutting down the whole system as he did when he kept rescheduling opening the schools at the start. Even though most school buildings didn’t have enough ventilation to prevent the contagion and the cap to make partial opening work was set low at 3% even though CDC regs and Cuomo set it at 5%. plus the inevitability of cases rising again when the weather got colder and of stupid selfish people gathering maskless in clusters, which continued to happen across the city. Then the 3% threshold hit and the Blaz closed them down for an indeterminate amount of time with Cuomo’s hands off blessing, collectively pissing off parents and teachers after a little over a month of utter incompetent leadership and shoddy services.

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

The interesting thing about the Blaz insistence to have kids return to schools for in person learning is that he made it an issue that he was the only mayor in the nation to attempt this. It still seems that he’s still obsessed with being some kind of national figure than governing the city he was elected to run. Twice. And the chaotic logistics behind the schools reopening and reclosing truly conveys a mission supervised by other interests and distractions.

And it definitely applies to Cuomo too with his pressers, because his belligerence with the NYC press is just a withdrawal symptom after getting months of fawning butt massaging praise and unconditional (and maladjusted) worship from the corporate news press (which includes his little brother), celebrities and social media for being an alleged alternative resource against COVID information coming from the Trump administration even though Cuomo refused to meet with Trump’s health commissioner 17 times when called for emergency meetings regarding the virus. So Cuomo had 17 chances to yell and make condescending snide insults at Trump and Health Secretary Azir about his expertise to their faces on handling the pandemic like he did to these reporters and chose not to. Pussy.

Even after that the senseless praise for Cuomo continued as he rejected vaccines that are almost ready because it was made possible from Trump’s warp speed initiative. Of course the worst aspect about Cuomo and his rock star status is that it translated into an autobiography he remarkably found time to write an autobiography of how he handled the virus that is still spreading and an International Emmy Award that was made up out of the blue.

It’s understandable why Cuomo and de Blasio are being so difficult and so vague governing this crisis, because it’s just a reaction how they initially fucked up against the novel coronavirus when they both dillydallied and were at loggerheads with shutting down the city in March and continued to be at loggerheads in the ensuing months. But now they are finally in sync (so it seems) with the new lockdown as the holidays approach.

Although it’s imperative to implement these lock downs and restrictions now because of the rapid rise of covid infections, the governor and the mayor’s horrendous lack of correspondence and cohesion and their proclivity for gaslighting about their policies  and data while dismissing accountability for them has manifested a universal reaction of no confidence and universal contempt and ridicule from the citizens of New York City, who all really have no choice but to deal with these regulations and these two incompetent and insufferable megalomaniacs and deal with their shitshow follies.

Remotely of course.

NYPD Blocks Sidewalk Egress With Personal And Patrol Vehicles

 

Ozone Park, Queens, New York

The 106th Precinct in Ozone Park, Queens is egregiously obstructing commuting public space on both sides of the street with police vehicles and their cars, notably on top of a handicap cut curb ramp and by a public park named after a cop who died in the line of duty. The cop the park was memorialized for, Officer Nicholas Demutiis, got killed trying to stop a car thief that ran him over on that same block. 

 

This falls in line with what the NYPD has been doing at their other precincts as they turn the areas around their taxpayer funded buildings into makeshift fortresses, especially with all the frequent protests that has occurred in the last five months along with a majority of citizens calling for defunding and abolishing of the police and the budget cuts that followed in July. A recent incident that got some viral attention involved a reporter from bike advocate news site Streetsblog who got stopped, questioned and also threatened for arrest when she exposed the NYPD using a playground as parking lot for their vehicles (with permission by the NYC Parks dept).

But the 106th truly stands out for their brazen territoriality of public space. And to show that their annexing of sidewalks isn’t a new thing, this precinct has been parking vehicles on this sidewalk and the one across the street for quite a while now. 

Although what the NYPD is doing here with absolute impunity is obnoxious and in contempt for the citizens they are supposed to protect, this probably would’ve got rectified if the recent budget cuts enacted by the woke City Council cronies didn’t include terminating the building of a new precinct in under-served areas of Southeast Queens. Maybe some of these spacehogging cops would have got transferred over there when it got completed. 

But this could be easily rectified right now. These cops could just park their vehicles the proper way parallel to the curb like they used to do and how the citizenry parks them instead of curbstoning them like how scofflaw chop shops continue get away with it. Maybe the city can contact the management and owner of Resorts World to use their vast parking lot for free or sanction some curb space by the abandoned Rockaway rail line for them and the BOWL 360 parking lot too. Ultimately and unfortunately since that aforementioned NYPD will never be built because of the budget cuts, what should be done is take whatever funding is going to the Strategic Response Groups that are being deployed to all these protests and use it to build a new parking garage. It would be a more common sense use for millions of dollars being pissed away having hundreds of cops damage their bikes by banging them up and down while kettling people demonstrating against them.

The cops over here should take their own advice they give towards protesters, reporters and even city officials and MOVE BACK their cars off the sidewalks.

 

 

de Blasio’s Citywide Administration Services Allowed Contractors To Swindle The City By Sending The Wrong Face Masks During The Start Of Pandemic

William Wilhelm de Blasio, the mayor of New York City (your city) seemingly proves once again how disconnected he is from the agencies that are under his auspice and the money that flows like a water out of a firehose from them even during a pandemic and an induced economic crisis.

THE CITY

 Last spring, frontline medical workers scrambled in vain to find proper surgical masks as the coronavirus swept through hospitals across the city.

Doctors, nurses and medical technicians were forced to reuse the same mask over and over — a dangerously ineffective method to stem infection from a virus that’s now taken the lives of more than 24,000 New Yorkers.

City officials jumped into action, signing more than $1 billion in emergency no-bid contracts with seemingly anybody who claimed they could produce high-quality masks and other crucial COVID gear — including ventilators.

Among them: Genuine Parts Company, an Atlanta-based firm that specializes in auto parts. The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS), which handles most of City Hall’s purchases, had bought parts for city vehicles from Genuine in the past.

An auto parts company from Atlanta?? Why?  And for what kind of city vehicles? Being that de Blasio’s DCAS felt that they can entrust them to deliver PPE’s to the virus frontline workers…

Go on…

According to internal records obtained by THE CITY, DCAS paid $348,000 for what was described by Genuine as 300,000 “non-Latex surgical masks” that were marked as “received” by the city on April 7. That was at the peak of the virus’ spread in New York City, when the seven-day average for daily hospitalizations hit 1,642, compared to this week’s 52.

 But records show that when DCAS’ Bureau of Quality Assurance inspected the delivered goods, workers discovered not surgical masks but “disposable single-use non-surgical mask/dust mask/Not FDA approved.”

The items were nevertheless deemed “accepted due to public necessity.” DCAS paid full price and placed subsequent orders for more masks from the car parts dealer, records show. DCAS then “redirected” the masks — useless in emergency rooms — elsewhere for non-medical use.

The Genuine mask purchase is part of a disturbing pattern uncovered during an investigation by THE CITY of DCAS’ pandemic-spurred emergency buying spree.

During some of the most dire weeks of the crisis, THE CITY found, the agency lost track of key equipment from masks to ventilators — driving an exasperated DCAS official to declare in one early May meeting: “Stop this s—t! Stop this s—t! Fix the problem!”

 And guess who also was involved in this honest incompetence graft? The Blaz’s art dealer buddy Charlie Trebele, the city’s COVID “essential” “first responder”  Contractor Gadget .

A similar scenario unfolded with another vendor, Digital Gadgets, an electronics firm whose CEO, Charlie Tebele, along with family members, has been a frequent donor to de Blasio’s various political campaigns.

In late March, DCAS awarded $19 million in no-bid contracts to Digital for high quality N95 masks and lower quality KN95 masks. That included an $8 million contract for what the firm promised would be two million “surgical grade N95s,” according to internal DCAS documents. 

19? How droll to match the estimate with the disease. Contractor Gadget also gave the same digits backwards and higher.

 The company also won a $91 million contract to provide DCAS with ventilators that was later cancelled because, Benson told THE CITY, the agency “decided to order a different ventilator model.”

Digital Gadgets — which previously supplied hoverboards to QVC — did deliver masks. But DCAS records reveal that the agency’s Bureau of Quality Assurance discovered the masks Digital delivered were not “surgical grade N95s” as promised and had not been approved by either the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.

So the corporations the city depended on to ship face masks and ventilators depended on a company not even from New York that already was contracted for auto supplies to city service vehicles and a company that makes toys for tech bobos. And both of those PPE’s were cheap knockoffs. Sure sounds like these companies grifted the city real good with the expenses they saved by skimping on the products at the expense of doctors, nurses, nursing home aides and tens of thousands of lives in New York City during the worse and most deadly time in the first few months of the pandemic.

GPC is a big national corporation, but Contractor Gadget Charlie’s company basically sells crap that’s mostly seen on T.V.. He’s also benefited quite nicely from his investments aka donations to de Blasio’s mayoral and farcical presidential campaign and the corrupted yet legal 501 c 4 PAC fund run by the mayor in City Hall, the Campaign For One New York; not only with a a government appointed seat on the COVID economic recovery task force collective gifted by the Blaz, Chuckles also was able to pay the mortgage to his Upper East Side townhouse with the emergency funding gifted to his company for his imitation PPE provisions to the city’s hospitals and nursing homes. Pretty sweet for a company that had a failing grade from the Better Business Bureau at the time (and present time).

 
This has drawn the ire of City Comptroller and mayoral candidate Scott Stringer who has been trying to get information about these tainted contracts for months, but his signifying nothing fury is laughable because he allowed the Blaz to authorize executive power over the city’s pandemic response which included total control over these contracts and their fiscal costs, which rendered his duties to monitor these checks and balances null and void and made his position as an elected official useless and neutered. 
 
de Blasio’s an idiot savant. He may not know shit about preparing for a crisis and evidently leading a city during one, but his brain cells get energized the second an opportunity comes up to make sure anyone who gave him money immediately gets a cherry contract with the city.
 
Despicable Bastard
 
 
 

Twitter Censorship Continues: V. Progress New York, C’Est Vrai And The Residents Of NYCHA Buildings

Manhattan, New York, U.S.A.

It’s been a week since the election ended and Joe Biden is still the president elect. The DNC’s fortunate son managed to win by a large number of electoral votes despite the corporate news/social media protection racket that managed to keep the corruption laden emails and IM’s and DM’s of his crack fiend son Hunters laptop off the airwaves and the internet’s series of tubes for a few weeks.

During those few weeks, social media monopoly Twitter locked down the NY Post’s account from posting other Hunter Biden story URL’s and every other story URL’s and after their principal owner @Jack testilied during a congressional hearing on their selective censorship of the NY POST which led to a big Texas verbal ass whuppin’ by Senator Ted Cruz, Twitter acquitted the NY Post and they resumed their legitimate reports on the Biden’s diplomacy grift on the platform after being extorted to remove them. Twitter’s sudden 180 re-legitimized the nation’s oldest newspapers credibility and made them more popular, getting the NY Post thousands of more followers. Suffice to say, what Twitter did when they reinstated the paper’s account was the biggest self-own of all time and maybe for eternity.

But it’s not all good news for the free press. Even though the NY Post is back, Twitter is still censoring and extorting smaller fry news sources like the solid and strictly independent news blog Progress New York. Although not the blog but a public services app they developed called C’est Vrai. And just like with the Post, @Jack and his posse of needledick mods and stringent algorithms are banishing on a petty technicality.

Progress New York

The Twitter social media giant has censored the C’est Vrai app, an action that suspends the ability of the Web application from delivering programmable tweets over the Twitter service. The action by Twitter followed its demand to control the content of tweets delivered by the C’est Vrai app.

The C’est Vrai app is a multi-faceted, computer-assisted tool that provides research and information services to Progress New York. The dispute focused on recent content that the C’est Vrai app has been delivering, namely, the location of certain utility outages taking place at the apartment complexes of the New York City Housing Authority, or NYCHA. Twitter’s restriction prevents the C’est Vrai app from continuing to deliver such content, which was being served in the public interest.

Twitter had objected to the inclusion of the Twitter handles of public officials, in whose districts the apartment complexes were located, respectively. In response, Progress New York described that officials were only tagged for outages in their district and noted that several public officials had acknowledged the C’est Vrai tweets in some form without complaint, including, but not limited to, Borough President James Oddo (R-Staten Island) and New York City Councilmembers Steven Matteo (R-Staten Island), Carlos Menchaca (D-Brooklyn), and Helen Rosenthal (D-Manhattan).

The last programmable tweet delivered by the C’est Vrai app.

The restriction by Twitter began on 23 September, when the last programmable tweet was published by the C’est Vrai app. Despite arguments submitted by Progress New York in explanation for how the C’est Vrai app programs tweets, Twitter summarily objected to the use of public officials’ tags, writing, “We can only consider a request to reactivate your app after you agree to stop this behavior.” Because Progress New York interpreted Twitter’s response as extortious, Progress New York would not respond to a criminal threat that was intent on undermining Progress New York’s constitutional right to operate a free press. As a result, Progress New York replied, in relevant part, to Twitter, “Progress New York is a news organisation. Regrettably, this is not the first time we have faced extortion or attempts at extortion. We don’t respond to extortion or attempts at extortion.”

Yet again as with their pathetic suppression of the NY Post’s Biden scoops, @Jack’s and Twitter cited an arbitrary (and inherently baseless) excuse citing security concerns to freeze C’est Vrai  even though the people that Twitter deemed were threatened somehow by getting @’d,  those people willingly responded to those tweets and sure didn’t seem harmed at all going by their professional responses.

But apparently, this needling against C’Est by Twitter extended beyond just tagging elected officials and went after them just for disseminating info on public housing’s locations were services were lacking or non-existent.

Prior to the current example of prior restraint on Progress New York, Twitter had restricted the ability of the C’est Vrai app from publishing tweets about certain utility outages at NYCHA apartment complexes in July, when Twitter improbably complained that the location of certain utility outages was private information (“You may not publish or post other people’s private information without their express authorization and permission.”), even though such information has been being published by NYCHA on its own Web site.

The suppression induced on Progress New York and C’est Vrai by a multi-billion dollar tech corporation can be described equally as incredible and irrational. Why would Twitter find it necessary to punch down on a small local news site just trying to make low income earning residents lives easier while living in public housing buildings that continue to be bereft of essential services like heat and perpetual hazardous environmental conditions? It’s suspect enough to make conspiracy theories opinionated deductions about how Twitter runs their business and what their inherent interests are behind their policies.

Having said that and since Twitter’s recent actions and punitive decisions against the NY Post and still against Progress/C’est are inherently based on deductions themselves, the connections behind them and how they are tied to NYCHA in this  opinionated deduction here is just as merited…

Twitter’s Manhattan offices are in Chelsea on 17th Street between 7th Ave. and 8th Ave. Walk down one block west on 17 and the first thing you see on the west corner of 9th Ave. are NYCHA’s Fulton Houses.

Image

 

 

 

 

 

Fulton Houses is currently under the crosshairs of the federal’s Housing and Urban Development department which is about to implement the RAD (Rental Assistance Demonstration) program which is designed to provide more funding to pay for way overdue renovations of the buildings utilities and infrastructure and to also improve services to the buildings.

In order to activate that funding and all those improvements, two actual affordable public housing buildings have to be demolished and replaced with one mixed used building with market rate apartments. This insane on the face of it proposal has caused much consternation and strife with the long time tenants of Fulton who are reasonably worried and mighty pissed off about being displaced from their homes and their community they’ve known for their own lives.

Down the block on 10th Ave. by the luxury elevated promenade the Highline is a dense row of luxury tower buildings under development but nearly complete, casting an ominous high end market rate shadow over Fulton Houses. Even though the tenants are still valiantly fighting the city from the RAD proposal, these lux buildings seem to projected to be completed in concurrence with the NYCHA buildings planned for destruction.

What does this have to do with Twitter? Maybe their new employees will be able to occupy the new NYCHA mixed used building as the middle tier workers making low six figures can look to occupy the market rate units. While the top tier workers check out the new apartment buildings by the High  Line. Instant new community. As for how it will mesh with the community of Fulton’s residents of retired elderly, working class and disabled people, that’s pretty much a mystery, but going by the resistance against the RAD proposal, they are more distrustful of, agitated and dead set against it than they are curious of it. But what’s distinctive about the Fulton Houses is that it’s the only NYCHA project to have entire buildings destroyed. How would anyone else react if these officials told you the only way you’ll see conditional improvements and a better quality of living is we blow up your home first?

It should be noted that RAD is here now because of decades of funding re-allocated to the Pentagon and tax cuts for the wealthiest and of criminal negligence by those hired to keep NYCHA functioning and habitable plus the environmental hazards and collapse of services that quickly exacerbated while under the auspice of the lying Mayor de Blasio and the last lying president of NYCHA Shoya Olotoye, the RAD program is being induced on every public housing building in every building. And that’s what brings this to Twitter’s sleight of hand complicity in this, because it’s truly off-putting how a tech company cum news publisher and editor that was so seemingly hell bent on helping Democrat Joe Biden win the election by suppressing the conservative leaning NY Post would want to suppress tweet bulletins about public housing services from a leftist leaning blog’s service app while NYCHA’s uninhabitable conditions still exist and their buildings services and infrastructure continue to break down with daily frequency. And shut down those tweets with seeming precision.

One mo’ time, Progress New York:

Though Mr. Dorsey denied U.S. Senator Cruz’s accusation, social media giants have, indeed, become so powerful that they now have the power and discretion to censor news outlets, a dangerous social condition, since a major function of a robust and independent journalism industry is to serve as a check on power, particularly the Government and big businesses, including social media corporations. Now, social media corporations are demanding a say in the content produced and shared by news outlets.

For example, Twitter’s questionable use of its “policies” led last month to the suspension of one function of the C’est Vrai app, namely, the ability of the Web application to deliver programmable tweets over the Twitter service. The action by Twitter followed its demand to control the content of tweets delivered by the C’est Vrai app. Twitter objected to the use by the C’est Vrai app of Twitter handles of public officials in the content of tweets, a demand that Progress New York found unacceptable, because Government officials, once elected or appointed to office, become wholly unresponsive to public demands for relief. Progress New York was founded on the principle that Government officials need to be held to account for their failures, particularly those that result in the suffering of average people. It’s unknown if the irony was lost on Twitter that the tweet content it was objecting to being programmatically shared by the C’est Vrai app focused on the non-stop water and heat outages taking place at public housing developments, but it wouldn’t have mattered to Twitter, because Twitter appears to be determined to thwart the independent functions of journalism.

The C’est Vrai app is a multi-faceted, computer-assisted tool that provides research and information services to Progress New York. Progress New York is a fledgling journalism platform that depends on the C’est Vrai app for its plan to expand, its roots in fact-based reporting, and its ability to shine a line of the failure of leadership in Government and in business.

Since Twitter crippled C’est Vrai’s account, the Astoria Houses went without gas for a month and tenants had tremendous difficulty getting in touch with NYCHA to get it restored. The only responses they got for the horrendous delay of services was from a food charity group that set up buffet tables of hot food for the residents and Status Coup reporter Jordan Charlton, who did a live stream interviewing residents and activists. Maybe if C’est was working, a tweet would have got to the district councilperson and maybe the residents would have been able to use their oven instead of the shitty single hot plates that were sent to them (is NYCHA aware that two burner plates exist?) and be able to have hot water to shower or even to wash their hands sooner. Especially with a fucking pandemic going on.

Whatever is going on with @Jack’s Twitter, keeping C’est Vrai in social media confinement is unconscionable given what the apps purpose is, to improve the quality of life of and the quality of services for public housing tenants that are living in squalor the government made for them (and continues to). More unconscionable is that because the app is not familiar to the masses and that it’s only poor people, @Jack and the Twitter army assumes that no one will notice or care

Locking down C’est should be hyuge news but it’s not because well Twitter practically owns the news being that people get their news on social media first.  Even after the self-own from their NY Post lockdown debacle, it looks likeTwitter and their algorithms will still remain stubborn needling bully assholes, buttressed by a sizeable populace who condones their regressive, passive aggressive and robotic censorship tactics that conjure up centuries of mob persecution mentalities from Christ’s persecutors to the with hunters of Salem. But nicer and with skateboards.

Free C’est Vrai.

Through all the chaos and the madness from this presidential election and it’s media declared settlement along with the rise of coronavirus cases and the continuing mind numbing exploits of New York City’s mayor and New York’s governor, I forgot that this digital publication turned four years old a few days ago. Anyway happy birthday to this thing of mine. And yours too, because I do this free labor of love and hate to keep you and the masses informed. (Well, it would if actual masses gave it some clicks)

It’s going to get really busy on here and that’s a promise and a threat.

It’s going to get really busy around here.

WOOOOOOO!

President Biden: The Luckiest Man On The Face Of The Earth

Psst, Joe, you won

“We make our own luck”

                                                      Gilda

Finally. America fires Trump and she has a new president in former Senator and Vice President Joe Biden. Finally for Joe Biden, he has fulfilled his destiny following nearly 50 years of government service and after countless failures in his quest to be commander in chief in the last 30 (except in 2016 when he deferred to Manifest Hillary and stood down).

Uncle Joe’s road to the White House started off as rocky as a lunar landscape and ended up as smooth, protected and gilded like an award show red carpet.Normally if something like this happened to a regular Joe it would be considered a classic Comeback Story, but this is Political Establishment Joe. It sure helped when about 20 people decided to run with Joe in the primary and about half of them plus two billionaires dropped out of the race simultaneously and wound up endorsing him in solidarity, fulfilling the DNC collusion to destroy Bernie Sanders’ second run for president. Even though Joe had no platform, no promises and no inspiration for people to give him their vote and he couldn’t even articulate what they were or even a complete sentence, he still was able to win a lot of states after Sanders narrow loss in Iowa and wins in Nevada and New Hampshire where Joe wound up near or at the bottom in the bottom of the vote tallies.

But when COVID-19 came, all bets were off. The states were primaries were held had low turnouts (even after the Biden campaign recklessly encouraged people to vote despite the risk of contagion) and the next primaries had to be rescheduled. Plus Sanders sappy performance at their last debate enabled Biden’s dominance at the polls in late Spring. While turning the nation and the primary election upside down, the novel virus managed to put Joe over the top and win the nomination with ease.

Normally, such good fortune to come about for someone during a crisis would be humbling, a quality that should come naturally for that someone who is about to compete to run and guide a nation back to prosperity and good health; but again this is Joe Biden, career politician whose loose ethics and morals and arrogance belie his straight shooter ruse personality. Biden defiantly declared to radio show host Charlemagne The God, a Black Man, that if Black People don’t vote for him they aint black. On the campaign trail at town halls, he thoroughly insulted people to their faces  and challenged them to fights who challenged him on his promises and his past legislative decisions and policies, even union workers and military veterans. When a man asked him about immigration policy while he was VP, which was found that the Obama administration built those cages the kids are kept in that Trump got excoriated for, Joe Biden told that man to vote for the other guy. Yet through all that, what would at one time would have ended a campaign and also a career, Biden got away unscathed again and trudged along. 

The primary winner also got away unscathed when a woman named Tara Reade, who in an interview with Katie Halper came out about a horrific experience she had with Senator Biden when he sexually assaulted her after she brought him a travel bag. Usually, a story like that would be relentlessly pursued by corporate news and the ramifications for the accused candidate would result in expulsion and resignation like with what happened with Gary Hart. But this is Joe Biden, the chosen one by Corporate News to rid the nation of a second term of President Trump. Even with the #MeToo movement still fresh in the zeitgeist, suddenly it didn’t apply to Joe Biden’s own salacious lust driven by his entitlement as an elected official.

Joe’s string of luck really hit a zenith when a laptop belonging to his never-do-well eldest son Hunter Biden that had a cavalcade of damning emails and messages of incriminating pay to play quid pro quo corruption with foreign leaders and corporations in which Hunter was parlaying his dad’s name and current position as the second highest official in the U.S.A. while high on crack that was sitting in the FBI’s hands for almost a year (an FBI that is under the employ of President Trump) that got never revealed until a copy of the hard drives contents made it to the New York Post via Rudy Giuliani and they published Hunter’s trove in dozens of articles, but when the Post tried to disseminate it on their social media accounts,  tech monopolies Facebook and Twitter throttled those stories on baseless assumptions of hacked materials. Lucky for Joe, a protection racket with these corporations responsible for the dissemination of information united in solidarity to kill the momentum of these scandals.

Then Joe’s luck really got hot when COVID-19 got the President of the United States and right after their shitshow debate when Donnie made of Joe for wearing a mask. Even though Donnie came back strong tripping balls on the covid cocktail his physicians concocted for him, the fact that he thought he could ride the re-election campaign out without getting infected while blowing off wearing the mask surely had an immediate impact and discredited him to a lot of voters, along with his incorrect evaluation of the virus subsiding as cases and deaths arise from the coronavirus across the land.

Now after all those obstacles, misfortune, gaffes and telltale signs of first stage dementia, here Joe is, the president elect at 78 years old. And he didn’t even have to leave his basement at his mansion or even speak to the press as he was blatantly and brazenly avoiding them as his campaign team put “lids” on Biden’s availability as early as 10 a.m..

Joe’s road to victory was so easy and paved with gold by all media outlets and the megamoney driven loyalist and royalist Democrat Party it should be considered a new wonder of the world, because even the celebration that’s ensued is rife with anomaly, people on the streets are celebrating more about the fact that Trump was defeated than about Biden winning (even Dem hack Chuck Schumer, who is jumping around with his clique clustered by the Grand Army Plaza while maskless)

Joe Biden is truly the luckiest man on the face of the earth as well as VP Kamala Harris,  the luckiest woman on the face of the earth who was the first to drop out of the race after being hyped as a top-tier candidate by corporate news and getting destroyed in the debate by Tulsi Gabbard.  But despite their triumph, they are still victors of circumstance made possible by the pandemic regaining strength. So technically this is more a COVID d’etat than a natural transfer of power through democracy as people voted based on fear than on real change they can believe in and also more people got sick of Trump and just wanted to have his show cancelled. And that’s the best luck you can get when people feel they don’t have a real choice and it has worked out swimmingly for the President-elect, who needed a crisis and a wretched opponent to finally get into the oval office.

Millions of people may be happy now, but don’t expect things to fundamentally change. This is Joe Biden here, and even if the vaccines are ready and the pandemic finally ends, you’re going to have to make your own luck.

                                                

New Bad Days 78: Shootings Continue To Escalate At NYCHA Buildings; Protests Are Getting More Aggressive By Demonstrators, Boosters And The NYPD With Clashes In Bed-Stuy And In Times Square, A Squad Of Black Bloc Bikers Tag The Entire Front Of A Townhouse, And Collusion By The NYPD And Trump Supporters To Entrap Protesters And Reporters; A Man Dumps His Dead Pregnant Girlfriend On The Highway And A Woman Throws Her New Born Baby Out The Window; Staten Island Eateries Get Hit In A Stream Of Burglaries; EBike Robberies Rise; Random Assaults, Drive-By Shootings And Stray Bullets Continue To Inflict Pain And Kill Without Warning

As the NYPD are busy trying to monitor protests that are getting more chaotic with polarizing assemblies of people from the left and the right, shootings continue to escalate on the streets of New York in an increase of 96% compared to last year with a 37% increase of casualties. The stats are more pronounced on the city’s public housing complexes with a 41% rise in homicides on the grounds and inside of the buildings.

Crime in the subway has held steady even though ridership has plummeted and has not rebounded despite having the lowest percentage of COVID-19 cases compared to other states in the USA. Although the subway train window smasher is still on the loose and is still smashing windows in defiance of the MTA’s $12,500 reward and the continued lack of presence of NYPD patrolling the stations.

Manhattan

In Harlem at the 125th St. Station, eight boys and girls were loitering by the turnstiles and obstructed a man from entering and then one of the girls pushed him from behind and feigned that she was shoved by him, which led her boyfriend to punch the man multiple times and continued his attack while the victim was on the ground and wound up with a broken collarbone, which caused him to prevent him from playing piano for months as a world-renowned jazz musician.

A woman also got hit in the arm. The man had to lose days of work because of his injury caused by senseless and rampant gun violence.

And again in Harlem, a woman was stabbed to death inside her apartment.

And again in Harlem, a man got hit by a stray bullet when a man tried to shoot another man he was arguing with in front of a church.

And again in Harlem, a man trick or treating with his daughters on Halloween were caught in the crossfire of two men shooting at each other and he got hit in the arm and his daughter got hit in the arm by stray bullets.

And again in Midtown, a man committed suicide by jumping from the 10th floor of the new JP Morgan building.

In Times Square, a man randomly pushed a woman onto the train tracks on the N/Q/R platform. The loon got caught by the cops while smoking a cigarette at a train station in the Bronx and had a peculiar habit of breaking into people’s cars just to sit in them and play music.

Also in Times Square, protesters assembled on the street to catch the Trump support motorcade and after paint was thrown at and flags were being ripped from the vehicles, some Trump boosters stepped out and confronted them and a clash ensued between the polarized groups with the NYPD in the middle of the fracas as men and woman brawled with each other.

In Soho, brazen looting of high end products from designer fashion stores is still happening daily in the last 5 months with robberies happening in broad daylight as they rush into the store and grab all the expensive shit they can and then hop in a luxury car awaiting them outside. As the crooks get away with tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, Store management and burly security guards let them rush out with the goods with impunity because they don’t want to be called racist and get excoriated on social media.

In Noho, a cop chased a man that shoplifted a pair of shades from a sunglasses store. The thief resisted arrest and cut the cops hand causing him to get 60 stitches and the backup that showed up to assist the Lieutenant in the collar was about the same amount.

In Tribeca, a man approached another man on the sidewalk and slashed him in the arm and stabbed his torso.

Again in Hell’s Kitchen, a rise of homeless encampments and heroin abuse and drug dealing under scaffolding continues to accelerate in the area.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man randomly walloped a 78-year-old man with a BBQ grill brush who was only a few steps away from his residential building.

Eleven people got arrested including two people who were obviously journalists but weren’t considered to be by de Blasio’s NYPD because they weren’t “NYPD credentialed”

While the armored and battle ready cops were engaging in one-sided combat with a comparably small crowd that was dispersing from the area, hundreds of people participating in a four-borough convoy ride dubbed the MAGAdrag were driving around with their license plates taped over and standing still and obstructing traffic on the Whitestone Bridge while waving flags mimicking old glory and for Trump’s re-election. When a woman tried to get photos of some of these violators obscuring their license plates in Belle Harbor, a cop stood thisclose facing her to obstruct her focus.

ImageImage

The MAGAdrag never set one tire track in Manhattan nor where there any reports of citations being issued for the obscured plates and standing on the bridges. According to a Trump booster member of the Proud Boys, the NYPD reached out to them and told them not to drive into the city because there wasn’t enough personnel to handle them and the described Antifa/BLM crowd simultaneously and then the MAGAdrag altered their route the moment they got that bulletin. Sure looks like de Blasio’s NYPD colluded with MAGAdrag so they can oppress and incarcerated a group of people that disagree with them along with the collateral suppression of journalists that were documenting the actions of the militarized cops.

In Greenwich Village, a man attacked another man with a knife because he was wearing a hat supporting President Trump.

Also in Greenwich Village at the West 4th St. Station,  a man attacked another man on the D train and wailed on him with punches and bit a friend of his who tried to stop the goon. Then a woman intervened and whacked the two men with an umbrella and ran away with the perp.

Also in the Lower East Side, a woman was mugged by a man for 20 bucks by the affordable poor door entrance of the 80% affordable luxury tower apartment building by the Manhattan Bridge.

Especially against the food-app contractors; who have to work for two companies just to barely earn a living wage and have to risk their lives just to keep their ebikes, which retail for about $2,000.

A woman got kicked out of the precinct when she tried to get information about her friend who got detained. As the crowd of protesters got restless, the cops shielded themselves with steel barricades at the front of their station house. Then de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD knocked their barricades down and charged at the group and pepper sprayed and arrested an 18-year-old man who they accused of attacking them with the barricade they pushed and two other people during the clash they induced. They kept them and the woman they renditioned on the sidewalk from earlier for more than 30 hours.

Then the cops showed up with a robot dog to track him down. Although it’s not known if it was useful or even necessary in the arrest since there were already about a half dozen patrol cars plus 50 cops on the block that showed up and two cops brought a German Shepard to detain the suspect anyway.

Also in Park Slope, a house own by Mayor de Blasio was hit by right wing pranksters who left signs endorsing Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s opponent and saying All Lives Matter on the entrance. Although the mayor doesn’t live there, surely The Blaz would find such chosen political vandalism “unacceptable”.
