New Bad Days 38: New Kids On The Block Getting Drunk And Willfully Getting Fleeced In The L.E.S.; More And More Opportunistic Attacks On Senior Citizens; A Merchant Gets Murdered In A Goodfella Hit In Ozone Park; Circling Fast And Furious Aspirations In Greenpoint; Sadistic Kid Selfies A Beatdown; And For Those Sadomasochistic For The Bad Old Days, A Current Mugging Spree In Central Park And A Rise In Various Crimes On The Trains

102617korea.jpgSign of the times for the new cold war days. Metropolitan Avenue, Ridgewood, Queens. (Ricketts)


In the Lower East Side, a trio of grifters have been amusingly stealing from drunk  imbeciles in their 20’s leaving bars in the district. They order an Uber and cruise around looking for marks that are barely conscious enough to walk. Like one chump they found and asked him if he wanted to go to a strip club. The guy declines but still passes out and wakes up on the street at 4 a.m. to find his wallet and credit cards missing and multiple charges on it. And another mark who invites two of the swindlers to his hip pricey hotel room for some stone cold lampin’ and wakes up at 9 a.m. and finds his laptop and iphone gone.

Then the next night, the three amigos catch some fool drunk off his ass leaving a bar in the most hilarious heist ever concocted. As they walk together on the street, one of the cons ask the guy to use his phone to put his contact info on it, as the other two are fucking around with him to distract him and one of them asks the sucker to give him his wallet, and he gives it to him. The duped goes to the police and files a report that his credit and debit cards were stolen and he never got his phone back. Well, because you gave it to them in a drunken stupor dummy, case closed.

A week later at the same bar, another sucker gets loaded with a guy and leaves in a cab with him at 4 a.m. and then gives him his phone and wallet when his new broheim asks for it and discovers his credit and debit cards and his phone gone too post-hangover. The three grifters are still at large because their victims can’t identify them because they were too blotzed to recall their faces.

Reading this moron blotter, it immediately came to mind that these suckers are the people, the target demo that the city planners, marketers, developers and landlords are pandering to and are trying to displace hard working and never playing and higher taxpaying middle class and stagnant salaried citizens from their homes and towns. And the reason why there are bars and barstaurants everywhere you blink in gentrified areas. And with absolute certainty, more incidents and crime waves like these will continue. Oh, the humanity!

Meanwhile, in other parts of the city involving unwilling subjects…

In Chelsea, a 94 year old man with a brain tumor was beaten up and robbed of his wallet and car keys while his girlfriend was bringing groceries to their home after they went shopping.

On the L train in Union Square, three girls surrounded a 19-year-old woman on the platform and snatched a wallet from her purse and boarded the train. When the robbery victim tried to get her property back, the 3 girls beat her up and ran off.

Also in Union Square, a jerk who wanders around public spaces with a sign tried to hug a woman and then punched her in the face when she refused.

Again in Union Square on the 6 train, a man sexually molested a woman that turned out to be an undercover cop and got his perv ass arrested.

In the East Village, a man wildly shot multiple rounds at a bike rider on the street sometime in the dark morning hours.

At Central Park by East Harlem, a man was found dead hanging on a noose in a tree.

Also in Central Park by Harlem, a man from Sweden walking on the road was mugged and beaten for his wallet around midnight

Again in Central Park by Harlem, luxury apartment tenants are reporting that people are having public sexual intercourse in broad daylight in full view from their balconies.

And again in Central Park on the Upper West Side, a man was stalked then beaten and robbed of his wallet and phone by three men after he was taking pictures on the top of a hill.

In Harlem, an inebriated woman was raped in broad daylight by two men against a gate.

Also in Harlem, a man committed suicide jumping out of his apartment window after a domestic dispute.

In East Harlem, a man followed a woman into an elevator and sexually assaulted her, the woman fought off the deviant after he threw her on the floor in the lobby and tried to take her clothes off. He then ran out of the building and is still loose on the streets.

In Greenwich Village, an 81-year-old actress entering her apartment building at 7 p.m. was followed by a man who then punched her repeatedly and knocked her down in the vestibule and then robbed her purse of her belongings.

In Chelsea, a 94 year old man with a brain tumor was beaten up and robbed of his wallet and car keys while his girlfriend was bringing groceries to their home after they went shopping.

Also in Chelsea at the 23rd st. station, two girls accused an 83-year-old man of leering at them as they were slovenly making out with each other on the C train, then followed the man as he left the station and then both of them punched him and knocked him to the ground.

In the Meatpacking District, a familiar sports reporter was also randomly slashed in the face by a man while ordering food from a street halal truck.

At the Gracie Mansion in Yorkville, a man recently evicted from his apartment in Staten Island tried to enter the grounds and threatened to kill everyone inside. Looks like some affordable housing did not get preserved.

At the Port Authority Terminal by Times Square, a man randomly approached a woman and shouted xenophobic slurs and punched her in the face.

In Midtown, three men spray painted a pink swastika on a synagogue. Pink?

At the American Museum Of Natural History on the Upper West Side, a statue of Teddy Roosevelt was splattered with red paint and a message demanding it’s and other statues removals.

In Kips Bay, a woman was found dead under a cabinet in her apartment and her boyfriend was arrested. A neighbor remarked that the new people that have taken residence in the area only asks “who’s selling” instead of “where the supermarket is”

On the M train leaving the Essex St. station on the Lower East Side, a woman pulled out a razor blade and slashed a commuter on his arm after arguing about bumping into each other earlier.

On the 3 train by the 72nd Street station on the Upper West Side, a man was discovered sleeping under the seating. While outrageous, dismaying and depressing, at least the derelict was thoughtful to let commuters sit there. If they dared.

The current Mayor, de Faustio, finds this scene unacceptable. I guess the tuckered out gentlemen couldn’t get a safe and secure room in a taxpayer funded hotel room, homeless shelter or cluster apartment.

Also on the 1 train on the Upper West Side, an 11-year old girl exiting the train was sexually molested by a man who looks like a hipster Brutus.!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_1200/grope29n-1-web.jpg

In Brighton Beach, a fight in a 7-11 between 5 men spilled onto the street and led to the stabbing death of an 18-year-old man and the slashing of his cousin.

In East Flatbush, an elderly man shot and killed his friend after they were getting shit-faced drunk and got into a fight in the early afternoon.

On the R train in Sunset Park at a quarter to four in the afternoon, a man* stepped on a another man’s sneakers and punched him in the face and repeatedly beat him down on the floor of the car after the victim yelled at him for doing that.!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_1200/trainbeat22n-2-web.jpg *This is the guy

On the 5 train in Flatbush, a man creeped up next to a woman sleeping and masturbated next to her. The perv then tried to flee by punching a transit cop.

Also in Williamsburg, a biker was struck and knocked down on the street by turning box truck driven by a man with a suspended license.

Again in Williamsburg, a 17-year-old boy persuaded a 13-year-old girl to give him oral sex in a stairwell at a high school.

And again in Williamsburg, a man sneaked into a overvalued luxury loft building’s bike parking amenity and stole 2 bikes worth $11,000. 11 grand. For 2 fucking bikes. Lock your shit up dummies.

In DUMBO, a man leaving an overpriced fast food chain noticed his dogs he tied to a tree were being teased by a group of kids. When he confronted them, one threw his milkshake at him and one of them sucker-punched him from behind, knocked him to the ground and then took a picture of himself and the victim with his phone.

In Midwood, burglars broke into the back door of the office of State Senator Simca Felder then busted through a wall leading to the deli on the first floor and stole $5,000 worth of merchandise from it.

In Gravesend, a subway car had it’s windows smashed and broken after someone broke into the rail yard.

Two people have been arrested in the burglary of a Bed-Stuy home that caused a 91-year-old man to die from cardiac arrest after being hog-tied by the health aide assigned to them who concocted the grisly invasion along with her nephew. The third person has been identified and is still on the loose. It’s likely that the elderly couple knew their attackers through the aide.


In Ozone Park, a block away from John Gotti’s old social club, a small businessman and his son was approached by three well-dressed men in his establishment who held him up for cash as one of them pulled a gun and shot the father in the head and pistol whipped his son during work hours in front of other employees. A loan shark was accepting weekly payment installments from the merchant to cover a debt to him and suddenly demanded to be paid the debt in full. The merchant died a week after the holdup and the three goons are still at large though they left a hat and an empty clip behind.

This is the last thing this town needs, a return to the days of mob rule and the cognitive dissonance and passive acceptance of it.

In Richmond Hill, a 13-year-old girl stepping off a bus was stalked and called a racial slur by a grown man who then threw a bottle of fluid on her.

In South Beach, a stupid contractor was driving a one ton vehicle on the roof of a NYCHA building.

Let’s be careful out there, especially into the night. And don’t talk to strangers while you’re loaded.



Jona Sings! Mayor de Blasio’s Free Ride Re-Election Campaign Gets Cock-Blocked mayor standing particularly close to the once upstart player now convict Jona Rechnitz

Manhattan Federal Courthouse, New York, New York

Impeccable, uncanny and unfortunate timing for the reigning mayor of the boroughs 5. Testifying during the bribery, racketeering and pension money laundering trial against former jails union head Norman Seabrook, Rechnitz was approached by the prosecutor about his relationship in the first year of hizzoner’s term, seeing that it was this transgression that got him embroiled in the current case he’s providing witness testimony for. Suffice to say, it looks like Jona stopped giving a fuck and responded like a player who himself got played like a sucker by the ambitious and ultimately ungrateful mayor and getting the brunt of it by getting incarcerated.

Rechnitz dropped the proverbial bomb about de Faustio’s willingness to dole city government service favors by all means necessary. Jona, with his donations and from various straw donors totaling around $193,000, was a de facto chief of staff for the morally loose mayor. He demanded to basically appoint the commissioners for the police and the Department of Buildings. He arranged luxury trips for NYPD higher brass with his pick Phillip Banks and Norman Seabrook for which he played a literal bag man by giving him his bribe in a Sal Ferragamo bag.

De Faustio, despite his persistent and constant denials and of course his mealy self-serving blog posts on Medium, seemed for a few years to enjoy and relish the company he kept. And also the new found power 75% of the 21% of the registered voters gave him. Being that he graciously gave his favorite donor his personal phone number and e-mail, messaging and reassuring his bubby that he was “all ears“.  That he actually held out playing for Jona’s pay by being slow (natch) to reduce utility bills, lift fines and violations on a properties he managed. Ordering his minion and campaign manager and CONY bundler Ross Offinger to hassle Jona for more cash. And needling Jona to coax Norman to stifle his opinions on the qualifications and character of Joe Ponte, the incompetent, disgraced boob de Faustio picked for jails commissioner.

There really should be no more argument of the character of our current mayor. Although the collective shenanigans of these and the machinations executed by these two like-minded fellows and the circumstances that ensued make a very interesting plot device. Jona’s is obvious, but the Mayor’s suspicious actions that followed his former bubby’s arrest and conviction is very interesting.

Consider when he ended his CONY fundraising and his agents of the city meetings in city hall. What followed immediately was his morning commute habit of going to the Y in Park Slope for workouts then trekking to Park Row to start the day in his official office at 11 a.m.. It has to be considered, especially when he got confronted by an activist who questioned him about the Rikers closing during his yoga workout wearing the inappropriate attire of cargo shorts, a belt and sneakers. And also of his redacted email releases titled “FLEX TIME“. Was “FLEX TIME” actually correspondence and more pay to play arrangements with other donors/the usual suspects? And what about him using his personal email and phone number for these conversations?

Another thing about those redacted emails mainly what actually was redacted in the ones involving Jona? Did de Faustio actually did confirm his picks for D.O.B. and NYPD? Especially the latter because Phil Banks was a favorite to get the job before he abruptly dropped out. Were any of the emails related to the illicit gun licensing?

And one more thing concerning “flex time”, was the Park Slope Y the new venue for de Faustio’s continuing courting of big time developer donor cash and advice from those agents of the city?

Jona’s recollections in court are equal parts super revealing, actually sincere and has a touch of braggadocio about it being the temporary mack daddy he was. It also takes a big shit on the mayor’s crowd surfing his way back into elected office and the pathetic attempt at transparency and credibility he is trying to build.

This is going to make the next debate more raucous than the last one. The difference though is that candidate Nicole Malliotakis has the advantage. And she did not wait to pounce either.

Karma is quite the motherfucker. The supposedly unopposed free ride is over for de Faustio. And even if he does win, with this way overdue damning revelation, he will eventually regret doing so much cheating for the power and privilege of the seat he holds and the damage to the city and his constituency that his selective policy making caused. Which will be enough to kick his big slow ass out that even the Democrat Machine D.A.’s will have to dredge legitimate charges this time.

Now the Campaign Finance Board wants to take another look at the shady donations Offinger goaded Jona for and de Faustio slovenly accepted. You know, to see if there were any improprieties involved. This after they gave the mayor millions of matching funds to his campaign despite having a massive lead over his Democrat challenger Sal Albanese.

For months the mayor was running free and now he’s running away from the truth and accountability. Again.

But he can’t run from the fact that he, as Mayor, ultimately played himself.


After 2 days of evading the press, Mayor Big Slow de Blasio addressed journalists about his former donor Jona Rechnitz by calling him (projecting him as) a criminal, a horrible person and a liar, and how he can’t (won’t) remember contacting him about telling          Norman Seabrook to lay off road trippin’ Joe Ponte. And how he can’t remember being even in the same room with him, despite photographic proof like the photo above.

So that’s that, voters. The mayor of NYC is lying to you. To your faces. This is beyond plausible deniability, it’s recklessly brazen deniability. This recent nauseating public gesture by de Faustio is the worst case and amateurish usage of Goebbels’ method of telling a lie often enough so it becomes true.

What’s really pathetic about Da Mayor is that he is tripping over himself despite getting off without being charged last spring. He could just easily admit dealing with his felonious friend and just say money and politics are a way of life and legally accepted because of the McDonnell v United States SCOTUS decision and running city government honestly and ethically is virtually impossible. It would convey a sense of pragmatism, which was the basis in 2 books prematurely released about his short time in elected office, which he misspent a bulk of it networking, fundraising, commuting 4 hours to work every morning, on trial, and napping.

I guess despite the heinous legitimacy of it, you just cannot consciously come off not looking like a two-faced unethical scumbag for engaging in such behavior.

What a stupid fucking idiot.












JQ LLC’s Broad Channel/Rockaway Beach Immersion Tour

464Let’s go for a joyride.

Hi everybody. Welcome to my immersion tour, inspired by recent posts by Queens Crap including the title of this one, which stems from a similarly named tour in Ridgewood back in June to spur food culture interest in that neighborhood as a guise to spur gentrification through higher rental market rates and displacement, and also from the extreme effects of Climate Change which saw my ride enhanced by a balmy 72 degree Saturday in the certainly soon to be warmest October worldwide in recorded history.

It’s called an immersion tour for my readers, all 6 of you, for I was immersed here when I was pushing 10. To make this sight seeing trip more comfortable, I will provide the proper musical accompaniment.

We start this sojourn at the intersection of Cross Bay Blvd. and Liberty Avenue. Which has seen a sudden and dramatic potentially deal breaking and car and bone breaking infrastructure change to accommodate more Select Bus Service routes. Like the 2 Q53 buses from Woodside I saw leaving the stop before I snapped this photo.


Unbelievable. This sight was unblemished for decades and now the DOT decided to literally put a fork in the road. The bus stops to the left there as it always has been, but from the looks of this, the east lane is going to be used for turning right and the bus is going to make it’s stop in the middle of the street. This is sanctioning congestion.

Responsible drivers never had a problem before transitioning into the 4 lane Woodhaven Blvd that is right ahead but hey this is for presumably everyone’s safety. Vision Zero and all that. It’s in this host’s opinion that this serves absolutely no purpose except for a place to stand while traffic speeds by.

Next up, BEER TOWN!


This may be the best name of a discount beer distributor store of all time. Sandwiched between a 99 cent store and a karate school and a few blocks from the homeless Comfort Inn and the adjoining Days Inn. I use to frequent this place because it was the only one to carry the Molson pilsner and Yuengling lager brands, which are my personal favorites. Pabst Blue Ribbon used to cost 4 bucks here. I like to point out that I was drinking that turpentine elixir way before it became the hip brand for the Brooklyn gentries.

Next up continuing the path up Cross Bay, is the small town of Broad Channel. Which after 5 years since Hurricane Sandy, a lot of homes are still in the rebuilding process, as evidenced by this obstruction in the right lane of the road.


This dumpster bin took up both the faded bike lane and a entire vehicle lane. It’s placement there is almost akin to someone dropping their wallet.


Brought to you commuters by the fine folks of the Build It Back program and Regency Carting.


As you all can see here, this presents quite a pickle for proper egress.

Next is a place that has seen a big controversy between two council members, who are from different districts,  erupt as election day draws near. The Bayview restaurant was renovated and reopened finally last year after getting leveled by Sandy. But for some reason this year it has not seen any business activity. It turns out it was shut down at the end of the summer last year when it was bum rushed by investigators from the SLA, FDNY and the MTA (why the MTA???) because of trumped up violations involving a bar stand and the good old cabaret dancing ban which was just recently lifted, and for something about a ruckus outside of the marina caused by one of the sons of Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley according to local Councilman Eric Ulrich.

Now if there is justification to shut down an establishment because a fight happened outside of it, I think every bar would have to face the same fate, especially in the recently city planning freewheeling and  SLA approved crazy towns of the East Village and the L.E.S.

But anyway, this is what it looks like today and it’s quite a mystery.





This excavation and placement of what looks like some sort of elevated patio has been going on for a few months now. There is no indication or information on what this is or when it will be done. This actually started around the time when the cashless toll taker was placed on the Addabo Bridge entrance to Rockaway Beach, so this presumably might be the reason why the MTA was involved in the restaurant’s closure and year long suspended state. Other than being the fact that Ms. Crowley is the cousin of Congressman Joe Crowley and the official Alpha Girl of the Machine Democrats and nobody will further dare repress the sense of entitlement of her gadabout sons. Or disrupt the pervasive influence of nepotism in politics.

Now we land in Rockaway Beach coasting up Beach Channel Drive and check out the vibrant sights of the new ferry and it’s elaborate dock. And the massive Six Flags style line waiting to board and those exiting the boat.


But wait, what are these things doing here?


And how come there hasn’t been absolutely any reporting on their existence? These have been popping up by the two’s and even three’s, waiting for the ferries arrivals for the past month. Fun fact, before these started showing up all summer long since the debut of the insufficient aquatic vessels, there were massive charter buses parked along this strip. I wondered aloud were these reserved by moneyed groups interested in the sights of the beach or was it paid with the citizens tax dollars by the city and state. These new shuttle buses might surely be the answer that they were, it’s bedecked with NYC logos and the subway line graphics adorning them.

Like the elaborate infrastructure going on by the aforementioned bridge pedestrian path entrance, there is nothing indicating where these buses go. There is a bus stop sign and pole but no schedules on them. That info is only available online. They just show up right on time or just wait there for the boats arrival, nice and convenient for it’s commuters. It’s not known either if it’s an extra fare or the transfer is free. Peculiar that in what is and always has been a public transit crisis going on that these buses have been prioritized for easy transfer for curious denizens of the newly hip and happening beach, even now that it’s off season despite the freakish elongated summer this state is fortunate to be having. It’s also quite irritating to see considering a recent story about a bus line cut off 7 years ago that’s desperately needed and being denied to elderly citizens living in Oakland Gardens in eastern Queens.

It’s also maddening that these buses were made possible by that awful shortchanging contractor from San Fransisco, Hornblower.


At least the buses are made here, I think, being that these are the road space hogging Trans Express buses. Which usually provides services to elderly and handicapped people. So this might suck even more, since the city is rerouting services again to pander to tourists and pretentious gourmands. In addition to the fact that there continues to be startling inequity in city transit services.

Next up, the sights of Jacob Riis Park. Which has seen an equal amount of vibrancy and citizen concern. Like the immediate first sight of the former and seemingly abandoned Neponsit Medical Center.


Actually, it’s not abandoned at all, for it received a million dollar grant from the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp. to renovate it, in addition to annual funding for it’s current upkeep. This was recently brought to light in a recent Queens Crap post, which noted the NYPD police car in the lot, as you can see on the far right and the unsettling creepy aura it displays. Maybe from the ghosts of the 2 patients who died when the city decided to close the hospital from unfounded hurricane damage.



The irony of the dubious decisions to shut down because of the impact of  Hurricane Irene should not be lost considering the resilience of these buildings after the devastation wrought to nearby Breezy Point and parts of Belle Harbor 5 years ago by Sandy.




Good grief. This poster is from an “event” thrown by various moneyed concerns aka non-profit groups from Bloomberg, various LLC’s and the Central Park Conservancy from back in July which I covered in this summer’s post on the gentrification of the beach and it’s still there. Just another atypical case of parks dept. forgetfulness and neglect.

If you think this looks scary during the day, check out this place in the dead of night.


To top this peculiar finding off, there has been an unmarked car parked at the entrance of the facility driveway with the gates open as if the security patrol is encouraging intruders. For conspiracy minded folks, this looks like some area 51 shit going on there, or some personal info data mining factory like the one in Tribeca, or a suspenseful eerie scene from “Stranger Things”.

Riding further west to the end of the boardwalk and a bridle path, is what can ultimately and aptly be called a stupid thing.459

What the fuck is this shit? Oh, it’s the latest idiotic attempt to gentrify the beach, Camp Rockaway. Let’s meet the fine delusional hosts and their wacky guests.


This is actually being funded by the Federal Parks dept. In fact it’s the second fake camping site that is being placed here in a outlandishly lame attempt to make going to an all access and free beach and park into a luxury destination and commodity. Spurred on by Sinclair Media/Pix News advertisement passing as a news item. Basically advert-journalism. Not seen in the clip is Tamsen Fadal’s lead-in stating that this is located in Brooklyn.


False adverjournalism too (FAKE NEWS!). For this tucked away corner of the beach is actually in a playground field, note the soccer net. 20 yards away there is a football field goal post and north of this “upscale” camp, you can see kids playing ball and other activities. The loony thing about this is it’s the second, ahem, “glamping” site on the beach, for there was another one located on the grounds on Fort Tilden further east as I mentioned in the same post on this issue. This stupidity will cost the average frivolous spending loon from 65 to 195 bucks a night!

Let’s get the fuck out of here. These people are crazy. And check out some other sites of continuing federal park neglect…


Here are some handball courts outside of the pitch and putt golf course. Which used to be the most popular local sporting pastime in the city. In fact it still is, just not that much in Queens anymore and with the predominant transient gentries that the city and state that are pandering to and no doubt the ubiquity of addictive app games. This sight, as well as other blights that those glamorous campers might notice on their hikes in the park and beach, has not changed one iota in 10 years.


Here we have a keg trailer by the base of the seemingly infinite beach bazaar. This should dispel any doubt about parks and rec’s foisting a party lifestyle and culture here.


Here is the long, long ago vibrant and still abandoned buildings and bathhouses. Which earlier this year the NPS tried to privatize the renovations but could not get buyer interest, even with all the activity and appearance of artisan food trucks and the new ground floor restoration completion 4 years after Sandy.


And finishing off, here we have the moldy ol’ Hotel Der Mar. Still sitting shitty despite the new boardwalk’s presence. The environmental hazard and property devaluing corpse house was also on the news recently.

I hope y’all enjoyed your immersion viewers. Yes, it was a bummer and didn’t have any craft beer or  pretentious artisan fare tastings but at least it was free and you didn’t have to get up. Also, you get to see a side that is being obscured by the local news media, for these areas are still struggling and are being subjected to senseless and unnecessary infrastructure upgrades, lousy and ineffective city assisted programs, bizzaro zeitgeist bullshit and the looming gentrification threat.

This tour is not discourage and dishearten. These are still great places to visit and ride through. It’s very fortunate to have this freakish and unnatural summer weather this autumn. So go on a joyride yourselves and enjoy the many pleasant sights as well as the shitty ones.

Smell ya later. It’s a long ride back to base, so here’s some appropriate musical accompaniment.


D.A. Cy Vance’s Dirty Donor Money Dancing hungry eyes. District Attorney Of New York County Cy Vance Jr. speaking at New York Law School. Not pictured, five figure checks in his jacket pockets

What a time to be an unopposed candidate for NYC District Attorney. Cy Vance is in quite a heap of trouble. For both political parties have let him coast into re-election unhindered. But it’s no surprise at all to see why. For D.A. Vance dances mightily for big donations regardless of party.

So sly Cy, has decided to clear the air and reassure the citizenry of these damning findings and revelations and has personally approved an independent review to show that he absolutely did nothing unethical and how this combination of circumstantial philanthropy and personal good fortune absolutely didn’t conflict with his legal decisions. Especially regardin the filthy syphillic donation from the lawyer of the rotund and lecherous serial deviant big shot movie producer Harvey Weinstein, whose hyper-sexual repulsion embroglio has received worldwide news interest.

Needless to say, a lot of what Cy has arranged is quite laughable going by his sudden moment of clarity that he wrote in the NY Daily News:

In my seven years as district attorney, I’ve never allowed someone’s wealth, power, race, or campaign contributions to influence my decisions. Over the past few days, I’ve learned that it’s not enough for me to have confidence in my independence from donors. The people of New York deserve to be confident about it as well.

That’s why today, the Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity (CAPI) will begin an independent review of how we handle campaign contributions. In 90 days, they will report back with recommendations on how to handle them moving forward. In the interim, I have directed my campaign not to accept a single dollar more.

I expect that CAPI — a nonpartisan center at Columbia Law School that works to bolster municipal integrity across the globe — will recommend that we go well beyond what is currently required by laws that govern contributions to district attorneys in our state. I genuinely hope that they do. This is one of the first reviews of its kind ever undertaken in the realm of prosecutors’ offices, and the firestorm we have experienced over the past week presents an opportunity for real reform.

How is it one of the “first reviews of it’s kind” when he is clearly saying it has such a review as no precedence. It’s definitely the first of a kind considering that the accused is approving and assigning it, when such an investigation should be commissioned I assume by the Governor of the state, meaning Mario’s son Andrew. But we all know how he feels about independent regulatory studies.

Keep on dancin‘, Cy

That’s why I’ve asked an independent group to help us radically reduce the appearance of influence of money in our work. It’s why, notwithstanding New York’s lax campaign finance laws and sky-high contribution limits, I’m prepared to dramatically restrict who can donate money to our campaign — including lawyers — and the amounts that our contributors are able to give. It’s why I’ve asked the folks at CAPI to look at other jurisdictions around the country and the world, and recommend any steps that we can take, on our own accord, to raise New Yorkers’ confidence that money and power are meaningless before the law.

At the end of the day, I don’t expect people to agree with every call that we make. But I want them to have faith that we make those calls without fear or favor, based on the merits alone.

Since the day is not done, and being in total disagreement with this pathetic attempt at self-examination, catharsis, and an insult to the intelligence of the voting public. And since this “independent” “review” by a world renowned collective of unbiased thinkers will be completed 2 months after election day, for all those tired of the bullshit and those disposed to instant gratification, I would like to submit my own and actual independent review of these, what his quid pro quo influenced judgements he considers did not persuade him not a bit.

Vance’s donor dance party expose’ all began with his rote decision to drop the case against Donald Jr. and Ivanka Trump’s amateurish and criminally fraudulent attempt to dupe investors for the massive black tumor luxury hotel and condo building in west side of Soho, Manhattan, New York back in 2010. Trump’s crazy kids made an arrangement via email of their purported scam to overvalue the worth and embellish the interest in the luxury tower, for what was basically just a plot device in their daddy’s reality show.  A collaborative report by journalists from Propublica, The New Yorker and WNYC reveals that the attorney representing them, Marc Kasowitz who was actually considered by the Irrelevant President to head the F.B.I., initially donated 25 grand to Cy’s re-election campaign prior to the hearings. After a meeting with Kasowitz, who reportedly pleaded with D.A. drop the case, returned the monetary gesture and carried on the prosecution and determined that no crime was committed. About 6 months later, amidst insider bragging of getting Trump’s seeds off, Kasowitz along with some acquaintances or associates, dropped 50 grand to Cy Vance.

Looks like Cy took the cash after allotted time passed to ward off any suspicions from the local news and the public who cared to pay attention. As for Ivanka and D.J., apparently their attempt to commit fraud was found to be just young naivete, being in their twenties at the time. and maybe not something genetically inherited or learned from the shady deal artistry perfected by their father in addition to what they believed was common practice in the business of real estate that should have more strict consequences.

A week after the bombshell report regarding the Trump Foundation’s consigliere, it turns out Cy received a sweet 10 large spot from a principal named partner of a law firm he once worked for/with during the Trump kids hearings. These compounding revelations would normally cripple a running candidate, but D.A. Vance insists these donor cash infusions are just gratuities from his peers and the laws concerning these types of donations from law firms are actually normal and technically, well, actually legal. And since this report initially came out online, this what should be a scandal can get easily overlooked.

Then along came Harvey Weinstein. The legendary Miramax movie producer and executive turned out to be a serial molester for the past 20 years. As of today, probably close to 100 women ranging from actresses A-list to C-list, models and other successful women in other talent industries like entertainment journalism, event planners and nite club managers have accused this rotund walrus shaped man of sexual harassment and molestation. The most significant standout involving a 22-year-old stunning model who got repulsed by his continuous and persistent physical advances which she bravely reported to the NYPD SVU. Which led to the now legendary validating recording of his gross, grotesque and ultimately pathetically weak style of seducing women.

This incriminating audio was brought to the attention of D.A. Vance back in 2015 and he dismissed the charge and blamed the victim for not being forthcoming about her unrelated  to this case involvement with former Italian president and Unga Bunga Chief Silvio Burlisconi. Vance and his team also faulted the NYPD, accusing them of insufficient evidence for lack of intent of the lecherous producer despite the tape’s damning luridness and Weinstein’s obvious intent to blackmail the victim offering her a modelling career if she submitted to him.

For this peculiar decision and not at all coincidental, the not at all influenced by money D.A. received a nice 10 grand from the power tripping deviant’s personal lawyer David Boies, whose firm partners has granted about $180,000 since 2005 to Vance’s political career. Though Boies was not involved in the dismissal of the Weinstein case, this superfluous donation reeks of a gratuity. Vance’s acceptance of it reeks of the influence he claims to vociferously condemn.

If Boies name sounds familiar, his firm was one of three that defended Mayor De Faustio’s aides in the pay-to-play trial cases, costing the taxpayers of the 5 boroughs 11.7 million dollars even though he had donated previously to fauxgressive mayor. But who did defend Blaz for his own unethical activities at the cost of 2.3 million at the expense of his constituency was the firm of Kramer Levin who donated $70,000 to the Vanz; the most recent in May of 2015, 10 grand months prior of the trial processions of de Fuastio’s case, which focused on his campaign for One NY donor money laundering to the campaign coffers of democrats upstate trying to get senate seats (they lost). During the proceedings, Cy kept Kramer’s cash during the hearings. In March of this year, de Faustio’s case was dismissed, although with a mild acknowledgement passing as condemnation by the D.A. who wrote that the corrupt mayor’s operations he ran in city hall “appear contrary to the intent and spirit of the law”.

Very strong, as they appear, words. It must have been really hard for the D.A. to proclaim such a statement about a guy he shares his democratic values with. Along with the same lawyer donors.

On the bright side, this recent expose along with the Harvey tape became the inspiration for dancing Vance to appoint this independent review.

But the spirit of the law this D.A. recognizes is clearly monetary, concerning the $42,000 he accepted and kept from the criminal defense firm Clayman & Rosenberg after Cy’s decisions assured them victories. The firm managed to convince Vance in court to show leniency to clients also involved in sexual violation and molestation incidents comparable to the esteem Mr. Weinstein. Like a gynecologist who had oral sex with his pregnant patients. Or even for assaulting women like the son of an CEO for Madison Square Garden and a one time Knick starting player, who was also charged with weapons possession. Or even for aspiring to commit an act of domestic terrorism. 

If there is anything to doubt the veracity and credibility of Vanz’s indy panel, consider a recent case he prosecuted a month ago of a man who raped a woman by the East River promenade in the East Village. The defendant was sentenced for 40 years hard time and rightly vilified on the stand by Mr. Vance.

If anything that proves that money and influence cannot get in the way of meting out justice and locking up violators and criminals, keeping them off the streets and ensuring the safety of it’s citizenry. Especially when no money is donated, for none of the firms and lawyers mentioned above did not represent this felon.

Conclusion: Cy is the reason why bipartisanship can be a very bad thing at times and why faith in politics and government is non-existent and general cynicism is the result and the norm among the citizenry, hence the lack of a Republican opponent. And ultimately, dangerous for justice and society at large, despite the destruction of Harvey Weinstein’s career and sex life, which with his decision, let him continue his serial perverted habits.

For because of the Vanz dirty money dancin’, he is complicit of the ascendancy of the current worst president in office and the emboldening of the most amoral mayor in New York City history, turning it into a modern day Tammany Hall. And since this review won’t be released in 90 days, which is 2 and half months after election day, he subconsciously doesn’t give a damn either.

This guy has no business defending the city from the scourges of this current era of avarice and status. He cannot be trusted unless you got the money to spend if you’re up to no good. The only thing uncontested in his running is the fact that he is running for a position he’s abusing and doesn’t deserve.

In addition, does it mean shit that he returned some of his donations? He had plenty of time to do anything with the money before he gave it back.

There’s your review and it was free. You know what else is free, your vote. Use it to write in a candidate and get this compromised sell-out derelict out of office.

At the 42nd Precinct in Morrisania, a NY Post article focused on how the NYPD and other precincts not named feel that they cannot do their jobs to serve and protect the public because they are afraid of getting sued.

At the 77th Street station on the Upper East Side, a man got killed as the train ran over him on the tracks.

At the Grand St. station in Chinatown, a man was caught jerking off on a bench.

And finally to cap off 2 weeks in the safest big city in America, a claim repeatedly mentioned by Da Mayor and proclaimed most recently during the farce of a debate, on the Rockaway Parkway bound L train between stops on 1st Avenue in the East Village and Bedford Ave. in Williamsburg, a man wielding a can of carbonated alcohol cocktail confronted some people who he presumed was taking up his personal space and call them and other commuters of the same race as them as “niggers”, incessantly taunting them and dancing a jig yelling the racial slur in the name of his first amendment rights and his proclaimed status as a graduate of NYU Law School.

This turned out to be some white rager’s version of showtime. As his one man vitriolic performance devolved into a mild public lynching. As the offended crowd of blacks and whites in solidarity gathered together to prevent him from getting his personal belongings and bounced him off the train. As he kept trying to get his “property” back he continued getting pushed off and a woman threw soup on him. The lout then fell to the ground and received multiple kicks from a man and the woman soup chucker.

The social offender did this before. Not only is he mentally ill or a drunken vagrant or both, but he must fancy himself as some version of Andy Kaufman’s wrestling persona in trying to incite people to beat his ass so he can sue them and cite the first amendment for his defense. So it’s highly likely that he will do this again, encouraged by the fact of the lack of enforcement towards mentally ill behavior. This guy belongs in a mental ward, which the overcrowded city does not have enough of or the money to keep one operating. Going by the balls of this loon and this exposure, he is sure to see a worse fate than just getting a shove and a few punches, expect this antagonist to get surrounded and beaten worse by more ultra-violent collectives or disgruntled showtime dancers.


The New York Mayoral Berate Debate Or The Row For Park Row

Enjoy, constituents!

Symphony Space, New York, New York

What a shitshow. And what a contrast from the primary debate, which was measured and mature even when de Faustio was lying through his big skull. But the official competition for the highfalutin’ job managing and legislating for the borough of five has devolved into a three way cage match.

As Gorilla Monsoon always use to say, “pandemonium’s runnin’ wild!”

It started ludicrous enough when the folks at Spectrum/NY1 decided to place the candidates left to right in height descending order. The incongruity of the set up of the reigning Mayor Big Slow, Darling Nicki, and Deitl-Dee looked akin to a block in downtown Brooklyn with the typical steel and glass behemoth looming over a brownstone and a bodega.

As this version of a Summerslam undercard three way cage match began, the crowd got very boisterous for their candidates. Actually, the crowd sort of sounded more like the canned yelling and wooing that used to be heard on Married With Children or any of the Darwin-challenged denizens that traverse the thousand bars in the Lower East Side.

The opening statements by our mayor and the legitimate challenger Malliotakis were your standard speeches of promises and policy proposals but was preceded by the madcap performance of the independent candidate Mr. Dietl, who was channeling an amalgam of the Looney Tunes Tasmanian Devil, T.V.’s Frank Reynolds, and a disheveled derelict with bipolar disorder.

And this is how he conducted himself for the next 90 minutes. First yelling about the Blaz’s baseball team loyalty and cheering for the division champion Yankees. Mixing up the issues in the cuisinart of his mind. Introducing new words to the English vocab like “yob” and “mooses”. Somehow he did bring up some salient points, solid ideas, and nice digs at the Blaz in the middle of his holler show, particularly his criticism of his jail commish Joe Ponte, who let Rikers rot in the inside of corruption and anarchy, but they got lost in the cacaphony that came from his running non-stop pie hole.

Assemblywoman Mallitokis was the token female and voice of reason. Her platform is pretty good and well-targeted, meaning de Faustio and his appointed cult’s frivolous spending of tax dollars, his staff of 300, his whoring for developer donor money, his slovenly dependence of and deference to the wormtongue lobbyists and the 501 (c) (4) he was running inside City Hall. Her plans to fix the homeless and shelter situations are pretty much the same but with a promise to get these people training, but didn’t say where (free college or trade school training?).  The best was when she accused the Blaz of being a pussy (my words) about facing Cuomo concerning the worst fucking transit system in the universe. But she was the only one who presented herself with class, dignity and sincerity, which is something this amateur writer hasn’t seen in a very long time. Although you gotta watch out when you make these descriptions, because politicians inevitably betray and disappoint.

Which segues perfectly into Mayor de Faustio, the current mayoral sash title holder. He also engaged in the voluminous atmosphere by yelling about his plans for the future of N.Y., thinking that yelling will come off as stirring and inspiring. But it was the samo samo. More weak promises, more plans that will take more time. More bullshit as frosting. His dubious achievements about his mental health program despite more mentally ill people wandering in the streets and subways and watching videos on those LinkNYC obelisks all over the city, which is run by his arrogant wife with 2 aides of her own (that’s about 375 large wasted right there). And of course, his now generally considered fraudulent affordable housing plan loathed by the majority of citizens but loved by the people who won the lottery for the tiny smidgen of low-rent apts. He has no plan for improving the city for the rest of his tenure if elected. His main platform apparently, and obviously is that he did not vote for Donald J. Trump, and his opponents did and that’s enough to justify your vote for him.

It’s like de Faustio is taking Hillary’s alienating “basket of deplorables” reasoning. What he refuses to realize, as with the cult remaining loyal to that cult of personality, is that she was a terrible candidate herself. Bernie was the more popular candidate, but was undermined by chicanery and manipulation of the public by the Democrat Machine. His vote for an unpopular, self-delusional, equally narcissistic, Hollywood and Wall St. donor ducats dependent and repulsed by the voting public candidate is just as irresponsible as he feels about how Nicole and Bo voted. And what about the percentage of voters who are his constituents who voted for the Dotard? Are they undeserving of civic services because of how they voted or what politics they follow?

The “debate” was reprehensible. Funny how Errol Lewis didn’t seem to mind the cult of groupies cheering for de Faustio and ordered people cheering for Bo to be kicked out. And something must be done about these stupid time restraints because some answers have to be thought out besides the typical yes or no. Although the mayor also refused to answer a simple question he was allowed to stretch and avoid the question. And it certainly might have been the first time that a moderator ordered mics to be shut off, and it wasn’t to get Bo to settle down, but Errol shut down Nicole’s mic when she wanted to respond to one of de Faustio’s divergences. She looked at him simultaneously incredulous and wanting to punch him in the jaw. Turning off their mics also devalues the actual purpose of the debate. Funny how being shut down twice couldn’t stop Bo from yelling at the end.

Everyone, except for Nicole, was obnoxious, dishonest and repulsive, and that includes the minions for Spectrum, Brian Lehrer meandering questions he provided and that snotty reporter from Politico, apparently their employers wants de Faustio to get re-elected which is why every question, even the ones that seemed critical, was perfectly aligned with his agenda.

This type of formatting shouldn’t be a shock, since everything news-related on T.V. and streaming is set up for manufacturing consent. And now they got add a little raucous no holds barred lunacy to get the people to tune on, tune in and drop out. And the chosen man of the hour is the Blaz. Even the Campaign Finance Committee is part of the fix, being that they gave a cool 2 million for de Faustio to fight his primary against the puny electoral finances of his opponent Sal Albanese, who just couldn’t get the cash to be at this even though he is running on the reform party ticket. But lo and behold, there was cash available for Bo to place and show to turn the future of this city into a farce.

Because even with the seemingly lower crime, endless tourism and massive wealth, the city is still a hellhole. A more overcrowded one too, with a financial bubble about to burst, and with the homeless that won’t go away and continuing to grow, a great depression that people of all ranks are trying to avoid and remain indifferent to. Frankly, I wouldn’t want to try to manage this FUBAR situation. But somebody’s gotta do it.

And it sure as hell shouldn’t be the one who exacerbated it.

There is another debate coming in November on CBS. They better not fuck it up and leave the theatrics to Vince McMahon and his progeny Shane O Mac and Stephanie. Although it’s going to be fun to see Marcia Kramer grill the defending and defensive mayor. Billy-D-B better wear 2 pairs of depends that night.




Wrath And Weak Persecution Of The Scumlords: Fire Engulfs REAL Affordable Housing Building In The Bronx And Two City Big Shot Realtors Get A Wristslap Fine And A Feeble Prison Term After Yom Kippur. housing inferno

Bronx, N.Y.

Residents of 1920 Walton Ave. affordable housing building of the now misnomered town called Mount Hope, mostly working poor, disabled and elderly, woke up early one morning to find their building on fire and their lives upended and out on the street with the clothes on their back. And also with practically no idea of where they will be in the future. Although with the way this city treats the functioning members of society and senior citizens, probably in hotels and motels in the area or in the outer boroughs, despite the city’s claims of keeping them close to their original addresses.

The fire was determined to be accidental by the NYFD because of faulty electrical wiring in the ceiling of the building which is where it ignited and spread on it’s way down to the apartments. Nearly 200 firemen where dispatch to put out the destructive 5-alarm blaze.

It’s easy and understandable to suspect arson, knowing the city’s and the Bronx’s history during it’s worst economic and drug epidemic crisis, but there is no doubt that willful neglect by the current and prior owners led to this tragedy. The building according to DNA, has a notorious history of elevator disrepair going back to 1995 and had prior instances of fire hazard faulty wiring issues. The building, which is currently owned by get this, 1920 Walston Ave. LLC, continued to deny service requests of the tenants, who were clearly too poor and powerless to pay any mind to. And also vulnerable because of the fact that they were lucky enough to be able to live in an apartment at the amount they were paying in a city with maniacal rising rates.

It is not known who or whom consists of 1920 Walton Ave LLC, because it’s base is in Lakewood, N.J. and you need a password to find out. The free newspaper Metro could not even get a hold of these mysterious owners.

The burn about this, no pun intended, is how did this building miss out and did not seem to qualify for Mayor de Faustio’s affordable housing plan for the preservation of such affordable housing. How did this one miss out in the mayor’s promise to end the tale of two cities? This building would have been a shining example if it got the proper attention from the mayor and especially from the perpetually inefficient D.O.B. that for years let this building rot without proper and diligent intervention. This is truly a disgrace and a harbinger of the city’s priorities in their lame version of service or blatant lack of it in helping the lower class and indigent.

It’s too late for the former residents of 1920 Walton, but after years of languishing in hotels before some of the 90 shelters as promised by Mayor Big Slow get built wherever in the Bronx or if they are lucky to win the miniscule affordable apt. lottery in one of his donor’s towers, there is a slight bright side to others trying to maintain and remain in their own affordable apts and that is the recent decisions regarding two mega-developers and their own transgressions; Steve Croman and Icon Realty.

This is Steve.

Steve Croman recently got convicted and sentenced for trying to scam banks with a partner of his for false claims of market rate apts and for 8 years for terrorizing rent-stabilized tenants in the East Village to force them out to execute the scam. This notorious scumbag relied on a sadistic ex-cop to intimidate his fiscally responsible tenants who were not paying enough for living there and in his buildings in East Harlem, by stalking, breaking and entering and reading their mail. He was basically Steve’s economic hit man.

For the amount of time and energy this demon was harassing his tenants with his hired goon, he also used the pioneering abusive tactic of using gut renovation of vacant apts., causing environmental noise and air quality hazards to goad rent-stabilized tenants into leaving and even recent market rate tenants to intimidate them if the speculation gets a little higher for even what they can afford. 8 years is not enough for this kind of evil, and even though it has passed, he certainly did not deserve to observe the Jewish holy days despite paying 3 million to do it. He did get to lose his broker license, but he still gets to reap the rewards of his insidious and heinous labors from his owner status which is less than the 45 million dollars that he was going for but he will still be able to throw a big hedonistic homecoming party in the Hamptons once he gets out and if he survives a shivving.

Steve’s pioneering and monstrous tactics have inspired a comparably young predatory developers in his neck of the metropolis to do the same, only to lead to fiscal punishment for their equally heinous efforts, and it’s not the advisor to the current POTUS (which may be why he was pushing hard through the weekly paper he once owned for Figurehead Trump to win). Icon Realty has been using the same diabolical, contemptible scheme to induce their lower-paying tenants to leave. Although amateurish in comparison, they still mismanaged their buildings enough with roughshod and reckless construction with making the renovations to apts by making them smaller to attract dumb transients to pay the preposterous market rate, in effect causing pervasive dusty conditions and the ceilings below them to crack. Icon also repeatedly shut off the gas on tenants for lengthy periods of time. Instead of hiring a goon to scare residents although they did engage in persistent attempts at buying out their tenants, Icon hired a publicity firm to ward off the hundreds of accusations of shitty treatment they were giving their tenants. Icon also exploited the tragedy of the 119-121 apartment building explosion to force a long time beloved small restaurant Stage to go out of business.

For all the chaos they caused and after years of enabling by the slow process of the justice system, the D.A. in conjunction with the REBNY jesters Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo, fined Icon a measly $500,000 to be paid back to the city. Which seems just a pittance after all the misery and inconvenience their intentional and kind of clumsy nefarious acts have caused, which could have been prevented and avoided if the D.O.B. had even a percentage of competence and efficiency. But it seems the speculators for real estate have too much sway and influence that it takes precedence over regulation and enforcement

The lessons and decisions being meted to Steve and Icon are only a temporary fix, and seemingly in tune for the coming elections. The problem with these recent judgements is that these guys should have been investigated a long time ago. Especially the case of those unnamed elusive villains who run and burned 1920 Walton Ave. in Mount Hope. Mostly, these properties should have been priority one in this supposed preserving of affordable housing as well as the NYCHA buildings.

Steve Corman might no longer have control or say anymore over his properties but Icon still does as well as many, many other baby predators. And they all are big contributors to City Hall on Park Row and the State House in Albany. In spite of these recent charges, their records show transgressive recidivism and cannot be trusted. Even though Icon got pinched a little bit from the city, they are still entrusted to preserve the affordable housing they lord over. The only progress is for harsher penalties and longer sentences in prison. Particularly in a cell next to one going under gut renovation for the entirity of his or her term.





What Happened In Vegas: The Millionaire Mass Murderer

Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.A.

The biggest individual shooting mass murder in the history of this nation still has not produced any leads or a rationale and motive for it. So far from the looks of it, Stephen Paddock, a millionaire account and real estate investor, just wanted to create a bigger terrorist act and cause more deaths than what happened on 9/11/01.

He probably wasn’t thinking about it, because all he meticulously focused on last Sunday was to kill everyone at that country music festival, but this attack resembled three of the most notorious mass shootings in the past 50 plus years. The Dallas clock tower shooting. The Oklahoma city bombing, considering that Paddock possessed explosive materials in the room in addition to the 18 automatic rifles and hundreds of rounds. And the recent soft target political shooting in a baseball field featuring members of congress and the senate. Paddock, by setting up cameras on push carts outside his room, actually thought about he could get away with this. And could probably shoot at more than the 59 he killed and the 527 he wounded.

He also had another target through another room he rented, 2 massive jet fuel tanks a short distance away from the concert venue that he shot at and tried to blow up, albeit unsuccessully. Paddock was looking to kill everyone in the vicinity, even beyond the festival attendees. If he wasn’t stopped, he would have killed 20,000 plus people.

That was the plan and motive. Just to kill every one and make history doing it. His demented mission was to murder 7 times as many people than the biggest and deadliest attack on this nation.

And the sick thing is, this time it could not have been prevented. For this guy does not fit the usual profile for a mass murderer or terrorist, despite being anti-social and a loner who keeps to himself. He did not have a criminal record and most importantly did not have a social media platform to see what kind of personality he had, or what beliefs he had or expressed. Most essentially, he doesn’t fit the profile because he was wealthy self-made millionaire. Which is why he was able to go into a fancy upscale hotel with who knows how much luggage it took to carry all those weapons and ammunition. And ordinance. He was able to do this even though it was found that he arranged the same reservations at other hotels near concert festivals during the summer.

This slaughter, this American Carnage, was planned for a year and maybe more. And being an eccentric that Paddock was and the lengths he went to avoid socializing with others, he acted alone.

Another reason it could not be prevented is because there is no appropriate gun control in the majority of states for automatic rifles or even for bullets, which apparently anyone can buy by the gross. Paddock was able to buy his rifles in Vegas and Arizona with no problem, because he’s a very rich white man and his record checked out for the legal purchase. Of course buying a sizeable amount of weaponry and ordinance did not arouse any suspicion from the sellers at all.

And the big, final reason that this could not prevented is by the worst and biggest bought off sell-out elected members of the House Of Representatives and Senate in D.C., who have reaped millions in filthy donor lucre from the NRA and weapon manufacturers. Whom before the biggest individual shooter mass murder in U.S. history and the recent incident of a failed mass shooting on a baseball field attended by their elected peers, particularly Sen. Scalise, and the 2 last mass shootings at a children’s school in Connecticut and a nite club in Florida and the continuing gun violence in poor towns and cities across the country, are in the midst of legislating easing of regulations of selling tracer bullets and silencers for mass purchase.

Sure these bills being crafted is for the citizenry that are passionate about their second amendment rights, which they predictably fall back on when it comes to some people’s desire to have a large cache of pistols and rifles to protect their properties and to carry out in the open if they need to go to store and buy cigarettes or milk or to go see a movie. But the vaunted second amendment didn’t help much that Sunday night in Vegas. When one of the performers on stage when the barrage of bullets started hitting the crowd noted that his crew members were licensed gun owners and possessing their weapons at the time:

“We actually have members of our crew with [concealed handgun licenses], and legal firearms on the bus. They were useless,” he wrote. “We couldn’t touch them for fear police might think we were part of the massacre and shoot us. A small group [or one man] laid waste to a city with dedicated, fearless police officers desperately trying to help, because of access to an insane amount of firepower.”

So much for good guys with guns taking out a bad guy with a gun. Paddock just nullified their second amendment right to defend themselves and the thousands or innocents around them.

And so much for vetting who is capable of terrorism. Paddock has now made it possible for everyone, especially the upper class, to have their belongings and bodies subject to thorough searches when they check in hotels with the same diligence and humiliation that everyone else has to go through just to get on a plane in our airports.

Paddock has also now made converts of the most ardent of gun owners from politicians to, no surprise, country singers to finally make serious and more strident rules in gun distribution.

These aren’t good aspects despite how it looks as progress. Because there are still a lot of people out there with bad thoughts and warped sense of justice, and a lot of them have guns. Automatic and semi-‘s with bump stocks as those used by the determined and deranged millionaire. This will happen again despite the recent attention and epiphanies by fervent gun rights advocates. And the next victims will not only be the ones who will become casualties, from the next mass shooter to the kid on the street in some poor urban area, but to personal freedoms of every one. Just like after 9/11/01 and now Vegas, everyone is a suspect now.

So in a way, this asshole killer Paddock got what he wanted. Just not the body count.






My President Is Irrelevant

snapshot“You’re on, dummy” Dotard J. Trump mentally prepares his twitter insult to a dictator and his threat to destroy a country.

What a last couple of weeks for Figurehead Donald Trump. For it might be the most significant time he has spent in his elected position and just may be, with his attempts at conveying leadership and shaping society and the world condition via his jackass social media vomiting, the final defining moment of his current stature.

My president is irrelevant.

The first sign was at the United Nations. There was considerable dread about his first address to the assembly and he did not surprise anyone or presumably himself. In a speech written by his young bald asshole ward Stephen Miller, who for some reason still has a job in this administration of chaos, he declared war on North Korea. Simple as that. He declared war and guaranteed destruction on a nuclear armed nation with a population of millions. He declared war and has put 25 million lives at risk, just hours after Congress approved 80 more billion dollars to fund the Pentagon this year and 700 billion dollars total towards the decade, which already hogs most of the nation’s budget. On a platform that usually requires tact and measured words, he called Kim Jong Un “rocket man”, which may be the first time in history where a leader used a juvenile insult on a rival sovereign leader and is the second time that Elton John’s classic song has been devalued. (We all know who destroyed it first)

Figurehead Trump, and whoever is advising him (no one), must have thought that threatening North Korea was going to rattle the nerves of the pudgy wunderkind leader Un, but all it did was make U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley anxious. For the whole 40 minutes during the speech, she had a look on her face that was nervously anticipating the dreadfully fateful moment of the declaration of war as she was easily distracted and seemingly more interested in the amount of people walking away during the speech. The exasperated migraine expression on chief of staff John Kelly couldn’t be more apropos of the population that is sick of seeing Figurehead Trump making our country a laughing stock.

Chief Of Staff John Kelly goes “DOH!” as does the general public.

Besides the aforementioned insult and the world endangering threat, the speech was mostly know-it-all condescension to the other nations for not contributing much, which although not being sympathetic at all to them, it’s not entirely their fault when the ol’ U.S.A. M.I.C. is the largest military in the world and it’s combined human and firepower  matches the amount of over 20 to 30 nations, and it’s actual budget is bigger than the other 7 superpowers combined, which includes Russia and China. And he also found time in the end to threaten Iran, which responded with missile testing of their own. Figurehead Trump looked and sounded slovenly and left the majority of the crowd bored and unimpressed, even after the threat to attack North Korea, it resembled the cartoon character Peter Griffin when he demanded respect from the UN for his accidental sovereign nation backyard.

The result of this shit talking by the overachieving mook from Queens just riled up his rival despot even more, to the point where Kim even engaged in the verbal snapping by referring to our president as a dotard. A dis that not only is surprisingly apt but actually syncs well with Trump’s birth name, making it easy for his domestic critics from DC to the billions of trolls worldwide on social media. Dotard Trump. Wow, it just glides off the tongue like eating a Carvel sundae. And just as fattening. And it surely will unite the NK masses to rally behind  Kim, because there is nothing that will bring out national pride like threatening to totally destroy a country of it’s citizenry and their leaders, no matter how oppressed or starving they are.

Figurehead Trump, being a former failed casino magnate with the instincts of the shittiest chronically addicted gamblers, decided to let his divisive banter ride as he addressed a crowd in Alabama in his still in-effect MAGA campaign tour by peppering his speech with a warning to NFL players to stand for the national anthem, in a reference to unemployed and blackballed player Colin Kapernick’s silent protest last year. Trump decided to pander to the barely audible crowd/his base by grossly generalizing any player that shows solidarity to the banned QB as a son-of-a-bitch, punctuating it with his old shitty show catchphrase “you’re fired”.

The league responded in kind and in droves, which included all of Trump’s billionaire team owner donors.

It’s like the NFL came to the realization in unintentional homage of the classic poem during the Nazi siege of East Europe, “First they came…“. First Trump came after the Mexicans, and they said nothing because the NFL doesn’t have any mexicans playing pro football. Then Trump came after the protesters, but they said nothing because the NFL wasn’t protesting his campaign but donating to it. Then Trump came after the women who criticize him, but they said nothing because they don’t have a uterus or a pussy to grab. Then Trump came after the NFL and it’s brand and the league just collectively said “hey Trump is trying to wreck a billion dollar industry and one of our national pastimes, fuck this asshole!”

The solidarity against Trump’s fascist demand for jingoistic and blind loyalty spread to other sports, notably from a rookie catcher from the Oakland A’s with his teammate supporting him. And straight from the NBA, the game’s most elite and popular player Lebron James responded to Trump’s provocation and his petulant disinvite of the Golden State Warriors visit to the White House by referring to him as the classic of all insults as a “bum”.

During this humiliating nationwide dressing down of the virtual commander-in-chief, Hurricane Maria, the third major killer storm in barely a month, laid waste to the U.S. Commonwealth State and nation of Puerto Rico, which had it’s electrical grid wiped out with the passing of Irma just a few weeks before. Maria, with it’s 150 mph winds and incessant biblical downpours, left the streets and highways flooded and destroyed forestation. And it devastated the electrical grid that will leave most of the country without power for months.

The U.S. Commonwealth State of Puerto Rico did not get a response from Trump for days for he was so entwined in persuading professional football players to stand up for the anthem and persuading the owners to fire them for insubordination if they don’t. Which resulted in the citizenry starving and dying of thirst for lack of potable water and food, making it impossible to get such sustenance. And no way to get these items for the flooded roads made access to them extremely difficult and no electricity for them to cook or prepare items. Hospitals were also suffering from the lack of power, leaving thousands of patients lives in peril. Initial that came via the Red Cross was insufficient. And Trump did not send the military over in 5 days, and when he did they were understaffed. He also refused to lift the heinous Jones Act against shipping from foreign countries, despite suspending it to aid the city of Houston, Texas and South Florida to assure and hasten the repairs and aid to their citizens and infrastructure. And hundreds of shipping containers containing food, water and medical supplies were left immobile with it’s contents left to rot.

When he wasn’t bragging about the alleged fantastical response of aiding the nation, which the aforementioned facts clearly belie, Figurehead Trump was making a pathetic excuse for why it was quite difficult to get to U.S. Commonwealth Nation despite having the biggest Navy in the world. That it was the unfortunate fact that Puerto Rico is surrounded by big ocean water.



This pop culture reference might be stretching it, but Trump said this with the same speech pattern as the cartoon death metal band Dethklok in the first scene of their debut film “Blood Ocean”.


Anyway, the Mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, clad in fisherman’s overalls surveying the damage of her city waist deep in the polluted water, looking disheveled and like she hadn’t even showered, went on television to beg for aid that was not getting to her city and the nation as a whole and to refute the tone-deaf ignorant claims of Figurehead Trump and his Homeland Security patsy of the condition of the ravaged nation state. a leader reacts.

So Trump reacted as is his nature of a man who had everything handed to him with a silver spoon and platter, and a deep seated contempt for minorities and did find time during his 50th weekend stay to the golf course he owns in Jersey to disparage her for not showing gratitude, accusing her of partisan political griping that he assumed influence her justified criticism, her not being able to lead and the nation for basically being lazy and not contributing enough. Which led to more universal condemnation of the spiteful Divider-In-Chief.

He finally showed up to Puerto Rico after 2 weeks to again, without the trophy he dedicated to them at the end of the Presidents Cup tournament and not even new caps to wear for the occasion, to once again praise his lousy response and the understaffed military personnel that got there too late and again insulted the people and the elected officials gathered at the conference by reminding them that their existence is costing the U.S.A. a lot of money (He probably deduced this from his avaricious economic advisors, neoliberal Gary Cohn and budget manager Mike Mulvaney, who are probably shitting themselves that they won’t be able to enact their American billionaire tax cut budget coming soon). Maybe he should give back the loads of money him and his son Eric got in the U.S. Commonwealth with his bankruptcy claim from his failed attempt to revive a country club with his brand/birth name on it. He also told a conference of elected officials that their fatality list wasn’t as bad as the death count in New Orleans (mostly the lower class 9th Ward town) after Hurricane Katrina, which simultaneously undermined and insulted them and their citizens and dementedly justified his willfully ignorant claims of his slow ass response and it’s good news story theory.

When he finally met Mayor Cruz, whose presence on the flooded streets is comparable to Rudy Giuliani’s on site action on 9/11/01 and should be Time’s person of the year, she kindly told Trump that it was about lives not politics and the Bum hastily backed up and ignored her. He spent the rest of his brief time chucking paper towels in a room in a peculiar video with maybe the only group of citizens happy and impressed to see him. No word on the brand of these towels or their ability to absorb.

After this deplorable hat trick of threatening to destroy a nation and it’s people; trying to control the beliefs and deny the freedom speech of athletes and you, the people; and his blatant indifference to a nation of people in desperate need, he did not intimidate Kim Jong Un and North Korea and possibly gave them an advantage in a new cold war, and turned Colin Kapernick into a civil rights icon, and Mayor Cruz into a worldwide sympathetic figure and hero, which she certainly is.

And even his Secretary Of State, Rex Tillerson, cannot even contain his rage and emotions by referring to Figurehead Trump as a Fucking Moron who speaks for himself and not for the country, the government and you, the people.

He has no credibility, or dignity, sense of decency or reason. All he has is his fucking twitter to get him by and his undeserved title that you, the people gave him by believing him and voting for him. Whose support for him is now thankfully waning. He will not be redeemed and it looks like he wouldn’t want to be. All he wants is to further enrich himself as now he gets to work on the heinous national budget for billionaire tax cuts for greedy dotard bums like him. That’s all what he’s and what this presidency is about.

As for everything else, his influence and impact and all the words that come out of his halitosis mouth and from his little stubby doodle fingers is jack shit. The President is fucking irrelevant.


New Bad Days 36: Consistently Bullied Bronx High School Senior Breaks Down And Kills Another Student During Class; Gang Of Six Beat Down Two Kids Over $22; Two Cops Opportunistically Rape A Teenage Woman During A Drug Search; A Derelict Robs A Crippled Woman Buying Ice Cream And A Rise Of Criminals Imitating Cops And Slashing Attacks.



At the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation in West Farms, an 18-year-old student attacked and stabbed 2 younger students with a switchblade, killing one and critically wounded the other after one of them threw a pencil near him in class and he claimed that they were bullying him for months.

Subsequent reports have found that the two he attacked weren’t the ones who have bullied him for years, but it turns out that this incident was the tipping point for years of harassment and abuse by other students picking on him for his sexuality and race.

This school also has fostered a dangerous environment for years and has seen 3 principals come and go at the helm. The school also, despite this recent history of rampant violent bullying incidents, did not have metal detectors because of a recent ruling by Mayor de Blasio.

If this was a state with loose gun laws, say in Nevada, this kid would have bought a rifle and could have killed both of them, if not all of the students who did not bully him in his vicinity at the time.

Schools Chancellor Carmen Farina surfaced the day after the murder at the school to mollify concerned parents that the persistent almost daily violence among students is just a case of “interactive learning”. Which shows that this person is clearly not fit for her position, as is the current mayor in his, and how tone-deaf and stupid she is to interpret fighting in the halls, stairwells, bathrooms, and outside the school grounds, in addition to future lowlifes tormenting students smaller, different or more timid than them as a form of socializing with others and adequate development into adulthood.

This is not going to stop. Especially not with this idiot woman supposedly running the school system.

In Morrisania, a man stabbed his ex-wife to death with two knives on a street corner at 8 a.m. in front of children on their way to school.

In Yonkers, two cops investigating a suspicious parked car were shot at by the driver and the passenger, with a bullet striking the female cop in the jaw.

In University Heights, a gang on bikes surrounded a car and one of the riders shot a man to death when he arrived to pick up his son waiting on the street. It turned out that his son belonged to a gang feuding with his dad’s killer for months.

In Fordham Heights, 2 muggings of two men took place 4 days apart as they were by their homes, one where a man followed his victim into a building and sucker-punched him as he was talking on his phone and stole his wallet, and the second where a man was brutalized and robbed of his groceries by 2 men swinging broomsticks accompanied by 2 women.


In Hunts Point, a man got shot in the neck after an argument with another man on the street.

In White Plains, a fight over money inside a restaurant spilled out into the street leading to a man getting shot to death.

In Belmont, a man with a child molestation priors brutally beat a small dog to death in front of a child.

In Parkchester, a man was beaten to death by 2 other men on the street at 4:50 a.m.

Also in Parkchester, two people died and 5 were injured when a fire engulfed an apartment building that was started in a condo owned by a hoarder.

Julia Louis-Dreyfuss Announces She Has Breast Cancer

Hollywood, California

After scoring her unprecedented 6th consecutive Emmy lead performance for Veep, Julia-Louis Dreyfus, arguably the funniest actress ever on T.V., has contracted breast cancer. She graciously gave thanks to her family, friends and fans and dryly stated that she has a terrific health plan through her union to fight the biggest asshole of deadly diseases and poked a sharp thumb and kick at the brutally inequitable system that is health care in this nation by acknowledging that many women, 1 in 8 in fact, are not as fortunate or even privileged to have proper access to insurance.

She did demand for the implementation of universal health care, so every American Woman can have it, as well as every American Man and Child, as if it’s a right. A fundamental civil right. And maybe one day, with the encouragement by Julia and the persistence of Jimmy Kimmel, a constitutional right.

Julia, get well, get well soon, we want you to get well.
