The victims were aged from 46 to 83.

The mass murderer wound up on the streets when his mother kicked him out for assaulting her and has 14 prior arrests, including other assaults on his fellow homeless. Despite this record of mayhem, he was able to get back on the streets when a non-profit paid his bail after he served a month in jail for his arrests of groping a woman at a homeless shelter and fare evasion after he got picked up by cops by missing his court hearings. Following these bad judgements by a careless charity group and a Brooklyn judge, the psycho killer took shelter and squatted in an abandonded house next to his mother’s house in the Bronx.

Following this massacre, Mayor Big Slow de Blasio promised to send more cops, DHS  outreach aides and some simps from his wife Chirlie’s scandalous money purging Thrive NYC mental health program to bring some help to the street dwelling city refugees. With all the money that will be expended for this certainly brief and shitty effort, it would be cheaper and safer for the homeless collective if your city just gave them metal pipes to defend themselves.

In Richmond Hill, a man shot at three people killing one of them as they were walking on the sidewalk coming from a nite club during a drive-by. Where are you Night Mayor?

In Edenwald, a plain clothers cop patrolling the Edenwald Houses where a prior shooting took place spotted a man on the street and and tried to stop and question him, but the man ran away, so he pursued him on foot and caught him, managed to disarm the suspect who was armed and they both wound up wrestling with each other. The man then tried to grab the gun from the cops holster during the struggle as the cop yelled the suspected man was reaching for it. During the tussle, the cop held on and managed to squeeze off 5 shots in the air. Then 5 other cops that showed up to assist fired 10 shots towards them, killing the suspect and the police officer.

The NYPD’s own reports and the ones they dispensed for corporate local news stations and newspapers and mainstream blogs to cover had so many glaring inconsistencies that it was obvious a narrative was being manufactured for consent for viewers and readers. The cops involved in the tragedy even added to the confusion by claiming they were being shot at. 

This is the second cop gunned down in the line of duty during an emergency call or apprehension of a criminal suspect. The first was back in February when a detective got shot hit by a fusillade of 42 bullets shot to take down an idiot robbing a cellphone store. And like those cops responsible for the death of their fellow officer in Richmond Hill, the identities of these cops are not known.

The stupid driver and aspiring rapper lived in the same apartment building with the mother and her late child and also did contractor work at NYCHA buildings and for the city department of design and construction although he is not listed in any personnel records for those departments. Which means NYCHA and the NYC DDC hired a guy and paid him off the books. Who knows what public housing buildings or structures he worked on. Or didn’t even work on.

In Mott Haven at the 149th St/Grand Concourse Station, a man got caught by cops going throught the service gate without paying and was patted down and taken into the precinct located on the platform. While giving lame ass excuses for his farebeating, the cops lifted his shirt and exposed a gun that they weren’t even aware of as the perp continued gabbing to the desk officer.

One of the cops during this sad display of incompetence was a sergeant. But what’s even worse is that this guy made bail from his previous arrest for gun possession after he threatened to shoot a nurse at a hospital a few weeks before and he got physical with cops when they were giving a summons to a friend of his and made threats to shoot cops once he got his license to carry a gun back in June.

Executive Apocalypse: Stronghead Trump’s Shock Jock Doctrine Is Shaping And Destroying American Policies, American And Immigrant Lives, And Ultimately His Own Presidency And The Government He Swore To Uphold.

3kwTrump fondling Old Glory. Both in distress.

This is America

With 2 years of being President, in name and elected position only, Donald John Trump has seen his administration, policies and himself go through wild twists and turns, leaving a trail of domestic and societal wreckage that is still being spread with every signature, demented and illiterate tweets and words coming out his face anus.

What must have started off swell for him at the spring equinox, with the resignations of Homeland Security Secretary H.R. McMaster, Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn and Secretary Of State Rex Tillerson from his plutocabinet, ridding Trump of dissenting but sage advice on how to run the nation like an adult (an adult that’s redirecting wealth to the top 1%) and maintaining economic parity and some version of peace with our European allies has now devolved into a daily wrestling chair/ladder/table cage match show.

…and then along came Stormy.

Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah

Stormy Daniels, a voluptuous smokin’ hot woman and award-winning porn star actress who engaged in brief coitus on a boat with the President, led Trump to summon his devoted lawyer and patsy Michael Cohen to pay her $130,000 to keep quiet about the one-night stand and helped suppressed an interview she made with a celebrity tabloid magazine with it’s principal owner and CEO David Pecker, which all took place one month before Election Day 2016. But the payment was made through shady channels. When asked by reporters about this as he was about to enter a cabin on Air Force One, it may have been the first time in recorded history that Donald actually was stumped and conveyed a paralyzing fear.

snapshottrump

Since this made worldwide news, the Donald has been leading his country and conducting himself like a megalomaniacal hyperactive 300 pound gorilla with explosive diarrhea in the White House, throwing his shitty policies all over the walls and seeing what sticks, as a chunk of his plutocabinet bailed on him along with two of his personal attorneys, along with his post-election day firing of Jefferson Sessions, who the President always thought of as his own personal attorney.

As for his long-time personal lawyer, days after it was exposed of Cohen and Trump’s little collusion to shut down a salacious story by concocting a fake ass LLC and lame ass alias for Trump, David Dennison, to put a muzzle on Ms. Daniels and the immediate subsequent arrest and detainment of Cohen, it turns out he was also doing (actually yearning to do) some illicit lobbying through his shell company called Essential Consultants to get fat juicy tax payer funded contracts for Trump to dole out.

Now it turns out Cohen used his Essential Services LLC to financially muzzle a hot Playboy playmate from dishing about her sexual dalliance with Donny and also to pay off another Playboy model 2 million dollars about her affair with a major GOP fundraiser, using the aforementioned LLC and the same Dennison alias that was used for POTUS.

Now that all of Donnie’s sexual piccadillos and all the felonious cash laundering campaign law violating drama is clearly breaking his already addled brain, Trump, whilst implementing demented and doom-laden policy decisions had been making the rounds worldwide and embracing dictators with doe-eyed subservient zeal unfit for a man who has spent the first two years of his temp leadership role making outright and veiled threats on his social media feed.

But it isn’t like he’s become a different man. If there is a difference is that Trump is acting crazier than ever before and is actually showing outstanding vulnerabilities for a guy who has “great mental stability an is like a smart person” and who was once reputed to be according to a best selling autobiography, a deal artist. No, this is the same guy we (mostly everybody from New York City) have always known and this is the way he’s always operated.

A few news pieces surfaced that has practically defined Trump’s performance, agenda, and directives as the President. The first was by a senior staffer who described Trump’s tactics and directives in foreign policymaking as “We’re America, bitch!” and the second was the  more pointed retrospective observation by Leslie Stahl during an interview in May when she interviewed Trump after he won the nomination of the party he permanently neutered about why he continues to viciously attack journalists.

STAHL: …he’s attacking the press. And there were no cameras, there was nothing going on. And I said, “You know, that is getting tired, why are you doing this? You’re doing it over and over and it’s boring, it’s time to end that, you’ve won the nomination, and why do you keep hammering at this?” And he said: “You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

This (not much of a) revelation shows that Donald John Trump has conducted and directed his presidency by the Shock Jock Doctrine. Not the delightful writer Naomi Klien’ landmark theory “The Shock Doctrine”, where the plotting and planning by insider politicos and their mercenary goons meticulously conquer and profit off of disasters, wars and coups, manipulating civic services and society as a whole. On the contrary, Trump’s “Shock Jock Doctrine” is what can be only discerned as the retarded version of it, as his policy and executive decisions do the same things but wind up with disastrous results on both the most vulnerable victims of them and eventually and humiliatingly towards the one individual, our executive in chief now known in New York’s criminal court system as Individual One, wielding them.

The Shock Jock Doctrine is inspired and defined by the syndicated radio and cable news talk show personalities of America: Hannity, Limbaugh, Savage, Alex Jones, the late Bill O’Riley etc. etc., men who spew extreme zealous polarizing opinions on how the government should be run. But Trump’s Shock Jock Doctrine more resembles Howard Stern, who Trump has mimicked his legendary format of crass insults and taking his oversexed radio theater objectifying and manhandling women to hedonistic power tripping levels, the latter no doubt verified by the pussy-grabbing claim he told Billy Bush 14 years ago.

But it also is glaringly affecting all his ill-thought foreign, domestic, immigration and economic policy decisions:

After writing his lie-positive polygraph signature on the executive order declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel, the opening of the new embassy offices there was marred by the psychotic gunning down of Palestinian protesters approaching the Gaza border while unarmed and also while they were in the midst of praying. The IDF snipers also shot a 21-year-old woman to death while she was identifying herself as a nurse trying to help the already wounded; one of the near 300 Palestinians killed and 29,000 injured during the year long protest.

While meeting with North Korean dictator Kim-Jong Un, Trump and the dictator seemed to agreed to a de-nuclearization deal. Following their historic meeting, Trump came away with bizarre impressions from Kim, marveling at what a stronghead he is and how his oppressed citizenry worships him and would like Americans to stand at attention whenever he or his image manifests somewhere, further cementing Trump’s deep seated admiration for autocratic tyrannical regimes. Since then, North Korea has continued to violate sanctions by ramping up their nuclear capabilities and naval logistic fuel shipments.

Then there’s Saudi Arabia, over a year after the weapons deal that was Trump’s first visit with a foreign nation which the Sauds have used to fuel their monstrous and sadistic attacks on Yemen, Amazon/Washington Post journalist Jamal Kashoggi was brutally murdered in the Saudi embassy. He was jumped by 15 men and was butchered alive from a physician severing his body with a bone saw. Following blatant falsehoods from the Saudi Royals about the slaughter which devolved from claiming that Kashoggi left thru a back door; then claiming that he fought with the 15 men inside; then finally admitting the murder as ordered by Crown Prince Bin Salaam, as pictures showing a hazmat cleanup crew team arriving at the embassy and footage showing one of the assassins wearing Kashoggi’s clothes impersonating him despite having hair and the victim being bald; President Trump veered just as wild as the Saudi Royal Killers manipulation of their self-investigation (which included brazenly sending a hazmat cleanup crew as it was getting international news attention and condemnation), first believing their cockamamie results and then finally and literally accepting the murder, stating how much they are needed because of lots of money and jobs are at stake because of the weapons deal (but more likely it’s the petrodollar and their investments in high-end real estate, the latter most definitely deriving from Donald’s own portfolio; most recently in the Hyatt Hotel and the former DC Post Office). Trump pulling the U.S.A. out of the U.N.’s human rights council makes his solidarity with these human rights violators and modern dictatorships and modern apartheid in the case of Israel

There is also his self-described beautiful but inflation driving and business and employee killing tariffs on foreign countries. Recently anointing himself as Tariffman, these tariffs (along with the Oligarch Welfare Tax Cut of 2017) have blown up the national debt another two trillion dollars.

But most of all, there is what’s going on at the Mexican border. Following Trump’s campaign launching vitriol of Mexican rapists and killers (and some good people) and his tirade about shithole countries and continuing Barack Obama’s cruel deportation and rendition policies; Trump’s administration took it to a sadistically higher levels with AG Sessions Zero Tolerance declaration. Breaking families apart by separating children from their parents and locking them in modern day interment camps in a vain attempt to discourage all migrants from coming to America. Making migrants eat food that’s against their religious beliefs. Making kids sleep on the floor with foil blankets; injecting them with pyschotropic drugs without their or their parents permission, constant verbal and physical abuse from guards. Having injuries and maladies left untreated. Thousands of kids subjected to constant transfers to other “shelters” from east to west of this nation and not keeping track of them. Putting babies and toddlers in what’s called “tender age” interment centers, which akin to describing and herding them like they were veal.

Howard Stern’s influence can also be felt in Donald Trump’s choosing of acquaintances. Donald also has his own “wack pack” consisting of visitors like Kid Rock, Kanye West and the My Pillow Guy. But it has extended to even his dismantled plutocabinet, with the exodus of D.C. reporter, pundit and insider reputed rational adults like Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster and Rex Tillerson, the ones remaining are all dimwitted characters. Education Secretary Besty Devos, who doesn’t know shit about education; Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, another dunce who was fortunate enough to have relatives in banking to enrich himself; HUD and Energy Secretaries Ben Carson and Rick Perry, who are basically slackers letting their departments do nothing as public housing rots and fossil fuel, fracking and coal companies get awarded public park lands for more planet damaging extraction and young ward adviser Jared Kushner, who despite also personally profiting immensely from his non-divested business in his time in the White is being played and owned by our Israeli and Saudi allies as they continue their oppression of their nation’s people.

But the biggest tell and blowback from Howard’s influence on Stronghead Trump, is the crank call he got from Stuttering John Melendez who imitated accused and exonerated crooked N.J. Senator Bob Menendez to persuade Trump to go easy on immigrants and select a moderate pick for the vacant at the time Supreme Court seat.

This was perhaps the greatest crank call in history (this one was formerly the greatest) and would had a longer shelf life in corporate news and talk shows if it wasn’t for the 24-7 half-second attention span news cycles because of corporate social media. Ironically, what did fill the void was Trump’s own wack packer version of Stuttering John, his actual personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani popping up on occasion giving outlandish and even incriminating defenses of Trump with his claims that his client is incapable of collusion because he’s president and how he can pardon himself if he is ever charged. But Rudy’s biggest and funniest gaffe was when he proclaimed to the nation that the truth isn’t the truth, making even a hack like Chuck Todd openly mock the once person of the year on Meet The Press.

Apparently, Trump hired Rudy mostly to represent him to normalize his own habitual sociopathic lying and kill the concept of moral sense at the same time.

And now we come to Trump’s piece de resistance and genesis program for his reason to exist as President, his fucking wall. After sending troops and making orders to shoot migrants if they throw rocks (which is wholly inspired by his pal Bibi Nethanyahu’s and his IDF’s tactics to oppress Palestinians protesters) and a Supreme Court decision to terminate his unconstitutional asylum ban, the Stronghead has gone head on and shut down the government (with the exception of the military) to get 5.6 billion dollars to build a useless wall (or fence) made of either concrete or steel slats or whatever and making shocking analogies of the construction of the wall with the invention of the wheel (these are his quotes/tweets).

Stronghead’s stubborn persistence for the Trump Wall has led to parks being inundated with garbage and feces, SNAP benefits and public housing services being cut to the poorest Americans, and over 800,000 workers being denied their paychecks, notably to those responsible to protecting our borders which President Motherfucker keeps bitching about, the immigration offices where people are getting hearing to become citizens and TSA security officers in the nation’s airports, where the majority of immigrants (and alleged terrorists) are actually arriving in! Stronghead Trump’s Wall stand is undermining and sabotaging the secure borders he claims he wants to protect!

The Stronghead President as managed to endure and finish two years of his first term with the Shock Jock Doctrine, but he and it is about to be tested with a Democratic majority in the House which he has immediately undermined with his government shutdown for his stupid fucking wall but is partially ignited by a new crop of fiery representatives that are calling and writing up articles of impeachment and with a current investigation into his crooked business dealings in his Trump foundation in New York and with Robert Mueller getting another six months with his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election (nothing there) and the influence on Trump’s campaign and policy making (very likely). And with three major cabinet positions filled with interim acting appointees and his NSA Advisor John Bolton discrediting Trump’s proclaimed Isis victory and promise to bring home thousands of troops by announcing that the troops are remaining indefinitely, it starting to look like there are machinations being made en route to persuade the Stronghead to resign and Mike Pence taking over the Presidency just in time for the State of the Union address in a few weeks.

Now Trump is about to go on national T.V. and address the nation that he is going to the border himself to make his case for his fucking wall. Who knows what is going to spew from his faceanus to justify the construction of it and the funding for it now. But that’s why we will all tune in. Because the reason why we used to listen to Shock Jocks like the King Of All Media and in the last 5 years President Trump is that we want to hear what crazy offensive shit he will say next. The distinction with the Stronghead is that we really don’t have any other choice and can’t change the station and our 4G cellphones.

Because his vulgarities have an effect on everyone and the state of the union and also has had a deleterious effect on our infrastructure too (which he still hasn’t paid any attention to  since announcing last year for a trillion dollar plan to improve it), but not only on the roads and highways of America but on the proverbial high road. Because three years of talking shit, dispensing insults and veiled and directed threats, the high road has been condemned.

Federal SNAP Cuts Are Driving New York City’s Poor People, Government Agencies And City Cops To Take Drastic And Society Dismantling Chances

https://cdn3.img.sputniknews.com/images/107056/48/1070564859.pngYes, that is the baby’s head that cop is palming.

Boerum Hill, Brooklyn And Inwood, Manhattan, New York, U.S.A.

The scene was at a Human Resources Administration office in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn. A mother with her 1-year-old child along with many others were waiting four hours to get assistance to get or recover SNAP benefits that were suddenly denied to them.

Reportedly, the woman, Jazmine Headley was there addressing her difficulty getting a work voucher and SNAP benefits was frustrated about her desperate situation that it led to an argument between her and the HRA staffers.

Compounding this fracas, the place was so crowded with people waiting for over four hours to get help that HRA apparently (or allegedly) ran out of chairs, leading Ms. Headley and her child no choice but to sit on the floor against the wall, which apparently didn’t sit well with the authority figures there, who then ordered HRA’s contractor security guards to command her to get up. When the Ms. Headley profusely refused they called 911 and have some police officers bounce her and her child out. Then all hell broke loose.

 

 

The video is a veritable play by play of current arbitrary police procedure. Although violently pulling an infant is a new one. How the cop managed to physically tear that kid from her mother’s arms while she was prone on the ground with 3 other cops wrestling her and not breaking his body can be considered a miracle and also if there is a NYPD training session with a doll for this type of situation. Another new one is pulling a taser and pointing it at the horrified crowd. But the usual method is in play here, like having cops or agents (like those two wearing suits) act as a shield to prevent witnesses from filming with cellphones.

The woman was eventually arrested and was quickly put through the justice system. As she faced a judge it was not only for resisting arrest and other charges brought about from the struggle with police, but also a warrant over her use of another person’s credit card. Then she was sent to Rikers Island.

This grotesque and cruel incident has gives the impression that being poor and complaining about being denied due benefits, as well as sitting on the floor against the wall in a spacious room, is now a crime in New York City.

But new information has come out in the aftermath and it has actually made this look worse for all individuals involved, and it doesn’t seem that an incident like this can even be preventable in the near future.

Being justifiably frustrated and pissed off about her SNAP benefits vanishing and missing a day at work at a job she just got and not being able to get a sitter for her child, Ms. Headley was inconsolable and took out her frustration on the HRA peace officers and workers there by profusely cursing them out. It turned out that they had spare chairs and the child was in a stroller but she refused them in a mixture of protest and spite and wound up sitting on the floor with her son.

Then the cops showed up and in another video from the front angle showed how the brutal wresting of the child began. At first it was calm has the woman was lying down on the floor protecting her baby, then the ill-thought procedure commenced and it gets worse from there. Where you can see the three cops trying to pry the child from the mother’s arms who continues to resist. You can also see the HRA agent aggressively pulled the mother’s arms and also the mother’s terrible misjudgement of wrapping her legs around and also hitting her son on the head in a vain attempt to stop them from taking him. Ms. Headly also bit the guards who tried to detain her prior to the cops showing up.

Despite the later reports on Ms. Headley and the phsyical risk she inflicted on her child, it still does not compare to the arbitrary, callous and crass handling of her situation. That is still a one-year-old child. A fragile human being. The way to handle it would have been to exercise patience and continue to talk to her and persuade her to settle down. It would have taken a while but she would have probably calmed down if they convinced her about putting her child at risk by not cooperating. Besides, it wasn’t like there was any progress going on at that SNAP center if hundreds were already waiting to be served.

But nothing can beat the half-assed empathy statements and obligatory indignation from top city officials:

From NYPD Commissioner O’Neal: “Thank goodness nobody was hurt, or at least at the time nobody reported any injuries” (What he meant to say: Thank goodness nobody reported any injuries)

From Mayor de Blasio, who noted how disturbed he was when he saw the footage, and deferred to the NYPD and HRA to get to the “bottom of it”, once again gutlessly passing the buck and shirking responsibility, leadership. And also judgement, because that HRA center security guards are provided by FJC Securities, which is already in hot water for their coverup of a man getting beat down by their guards in a homeless shelter in Brooklyn.

And most notably, the scornful avoidance and willful ignorance of the incident as shown by the pseudo-official wife of the mayor, co-mayor Chirlane McCray. As a reporter tried to question her, a woman (who was either one of her overpaid aides or a cop doing security) shoved her and made sure she kept a steady and long distance from the so-called feminist and tireless advocate for women.

Rosa Goldensohn on Twitter: “.@NYCFirstLady asked about Jazmine Headley arrest: “No comment.”… “

As for the authority figures involved in the melee’, the two HRA security guards who initially were dealing with Ms. Headley’s frustration and her volatile actions wound being suspended for a month and the cops involved with the physical extraction of the child and pulled a taser out to make the crowd disperse who were filming it will not face any disciplinary action. And also will not be identified because of the 50A provision civil rights law being profusely exploited by the NYPD to protect misbehaving and rogue cops.

The biggest tragic irony behind this is provided by well-meaning and tech-worshipping incompetent city officials. As the head honcho at HRA, Steven Banks, decided to make applying for and conducting benefit transfers for SNAP benefits through online applying through an app despite the fact that Trump and the Republican House have devoured funding from the program through draconian budget cuts which has rendered this convenience for millions of citizens who applied online for this arrangement being left in the lurch. As for SNAP, well that funding had to be diverted to pay for the oligarch welfare tax cut bill that was ratified last year by the wealthy hedonist Congressional and Senate officials and signed by the Sharpie-wielding President and also to the Pentagon for another 700+ billion dollars for the war on terror and now cyberwarfare.

Despite the booming economy, this money has not trickled down to those who need services the most, notably the working poor, who are having trouble buying food combined with the astronomically inflated rising cost of living in the five boroughs. Which includes the hundreds at Boerum Hill waiting for the aid they expected and those who suddenly had them ripped from them without notice.

Which now also includes a man who was recently victimized by government inaction and decided he was not going to take it anymore. At an HRA center in Inwood in Manhattan, Davaun Fournillier destroyed a laptop belonging to a worker while demanding to have his benefits restored and made sure to remind the staff there that “we’re not in Brooklyn” in obvious reference to the chaotic incident just a barely over a week agothen broke the wrist of a HRA guard who tried to handcuff him and detained him for the cops to arrive. When they cops showed up, they did nothing because they “didn’t know what to do”, even though Mr. Fournillier’s daughter was alone in another room waiting and they wouldn’t even call ACS or notify the child’s mom. Ironically, the prior incident in Boerum Hill has made the NYPD virtually handcuffed to respond to emergency situations at welfare offices. Not ironic and what is now atypical NYPD procedure, is that cop who said that and did not help identity’s also not being disclosed to the public.

This year of 2018 has bared witness to a lot of dystopian systematic bullshit and incompetence embedded in our government services that to summarize it would take a massive tome or 5 GB PDF file. But what happened this December at two welfare offices might have to suffice for now. And it may just be the genesis of a burgeoning insurrection that will unfold if this doesn’t get staunched. For what Ms. Headly did when she also endangered her child and what Mr. Fournillier did when he took his rage out on and assaulted that security officer which has made his personal situation even more dire now that he is facing charges and fines, were acts of resistance towards a broken unfair system still favoring the most wealthy and powerful, enabled by opportunistic selfish politicians who are using people hired to enforce the laws and maintain order as cudgels to defend these fugazi bureaucracies as taxpayer funded services continue to lag for people to desperate and to dependent on their stagnating paychecks and trying to survive under crushing economic inequities to live in NYC to fight back.

It’s not (yet), but it’s a telling start.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The MTA Fucks Itself: Slow Train Comin’ And Goin’ And Stopping Short

030This is what it said when entering the Queens Lefferts Blvd destination A train on 14th Street in Manhattan. Fuck the MTA.

It’s been almost a year since this digital publication decreed the MTA as the worst fucking transit system in the universe, which to no surprise to me is the most read post in the existence of Impunity City. Your city and mine. Since then, there has been a multitude of articles by professional journalists actually confirming my vulgar opinion. But none as deftly infuriating as the most recent piece by the now full time digital Village Voice. It ultimately turns out that the rationale for the perpetual shit service of the transit system is because of the actual modernization of the signal system leading to a policy of running the trains at a slower speed which was discovered in a three year old study by an intern at Columbia University that the MTA, in their hapless way, tried to throw it in the memory hole. (The only bright side of this is that this study probably didn’t cost taxpayers a dime).

The Village Voice: The Trains Are Slower Because They Slowed the Trains Down

The root cause of the subway system’s decay, it turns out, isn’t budget cuts or overcrowding — rather, the collapse of the subway system appears to have been primarily self-inflicted by the authority itself, in response to a single accident two decades ago that set the transit system on a path to disaster.

 But there is one type of delay that’s gotten exponentially worse during that time: a catchall category blandly titled “insufficient capacity, excess dwell, unknown,” which captures every delay without an obvious cause. From January 2012 to December 2017, these delays increased by a whopping 1,190 percent — from 105 per weekday to 1,355. In December, one out of every six trains run across the entire system experienced such a delay. The increase has been steady and uninterrupted over the past six years.

In 1995, a Manhattan-bound J train crossing the Williamsburg Bridge rear-ended an M train that was stopped on the bridge, killing the J train operator and injuring more than fifty passengers. The National Transportation and Safety Board investigation placed most of the blame on the J train operator, who the NTSB suspected had been asleep. But the NTSB also identified potential issues with the signal system that contributed to the accident, which it found didn’t guarantee train operators enough time to apply the emergency brakes even when awake.

“They slowed the trains down after the Williamsburg Bridge crash,” a veteran train operator who asked not to be identified told the Village Voice. “The MTA said the train was going too fast for the signal system.” As a result, the MTA, quite literally, slowed all the trains down, issuing a bulletin informing employees in April 1996 that their propulsion systems would be modified so they could achieve a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour, down from the previous high of 50 to 55 miles per hour on a flat grade.

But the MTA didn’t stop there, internal documents show. One of the NTSB’s safety recommendations was to set speed limits. As a result, the MTA began a still-ongoing process of changing the way many signals work to meet modern safety standards. Previously, trains would encounter green lights if the track ahead was clear; if not, a red light would trip the train’s brakes if it tried to cross that section of track, stopping it a safe distance from the train ahead. (Restarting the train after it is tripped can take anywhere from one to ten minutes, and the incident gets noted in the operator’s performance file, according to MTA sources.) Under the new program, generally referred to as signal modifications, the brakes would be tripped based not only on whether the track ahead was vacant, but also on the train’s speed.

NYCT’s estimates were so off in part because they didn’t account for a human element. The most problematic of the newly modified signals were “one-shot timers,” so called because the operator has only one chance to meet the posted speed limit. One-shot timers are easier and cheaper to install, say MTA sources; the more “shots” the operators have to get under the required speed, the more timing mechanisms have to be installed across a longer portion of track. (An MTA spokesperson disputed this, characterizing the decision to install one- or two-shot timers as safety-related.) But the consequences of going over the speed limit are high — the train is stopped, and the operator gets penalized — so many operators now opt to go well below the posted speed limit just to be on the safe side.

So because of a train wreck on the bridge, the trains have been pussyfooting across the rails for the past two decades, extending platform wait times and commutes. And this exposes the dirty little secret of the daily refrain during the daily sojourns of commuters “train is delayed because of red signal ahead”. It also explains why the commute the day after this Voice article came out that the trains were moving sloooowwer than usual.

Now with the city’s population explosion from all the tower development and rampant tourism growing every year, in addition to the reprehensible etiquette of commuters lethargically boarding and exiting trains while gazing at their phones, the frightening overcrowded platforms especially by major transfer hubs where commuters have to wait on the stairs, it has made this fubar transit system slower and slower. Which must be throwing those new countdown clocks and jumbo touch screen schedules off kilter.

This is ultimately an existential and irremediable disaster. But my prophecy is becoming possible because of the feud nobody likes of the two top officials nobody likes, Mayor de Blasio and Governor Andy Cuomo. de Blasio refuses to pony up half of the money for the $830 million action plan (which the Voice points out won’t help much, but it’s a start since it’ll supposedly fund overtime work) and at the last MTA board meeting in a stroke of funding blowback, Mario’s son decided to allocate 1 billion dollars for renovations and modernizations at 6 stations. So instead of signal modernization. track repairs and train maintenance, expect more art on the walls to ignore or pricey novelty take-out eateries on the mezzanines.

This retarded targeted spending comes on the heels of the NY Times expose of the MTA’s expensive moronic contracting, worker redundancies at work sites, and the transit union’s abuse of overtime hours. And with the recent revelations of the new crop of hired operators and conductors had insufficient training, it makes the MTA’s decision to run trains at a slugs pace for safety reasons utterly without merit. It should be worrisome how quick their reactions are when they confront those sudden switches from those pesky “one stop timers” which explain why lately the trains are always stopping short in the tunnels and arriving at the stations.

(On the subject of lacking merit for safety, at a train yard in East New York, four workers have filed suit against the MTA refusing to place flags on tracks to warn arriving trains of their presence on the rails and withheld their pay and denied them work hours the more they continued to address the hazards in their surroundings.)

But the necessity to worry should take hold for the MTA under the new leader Andy Byford, who is very cognizant of the inefficiencies causing commuters to lose money every day. He has ordered office workers to get out of their cubicle pens and head underground donning orange vests to assist and mollify commuters to make their terrible train rides easier, making them basically yoeman subway escorts as they through no fault of their own disregard their actual responsibilities to make the MTA operate. Get this, they called this the Subway Action Plan, just like the continuing dormant joint city and state plan that is currently languishing in civic purgatory.

And that’s not all that twit directing the worst fucking transit system of the universe just did, they took another dump on the bureaucratic shitshow by inventing a new executive job called Chief Customer Officer and hired some chick from a marketing firm who the MTA contracted for consulting services last year. Apparently, according to the press release, the CCO’s focus is to not alleviate the constant delays that is effecting the customers salaries every goddamn day, but to get workers to be more customer friendly (holy shit, just like what was mentioned right above this paragraph!) and get rid of “transit jargon” which you would think would be the same verbal pablum excuse for every damn delay but it’s actually the workers euphemisms and abbreviations for the technical problems plaguing the system. Which is actually a workplace order and nothing familiar to what the populace are paying $2.75 for every fucking day.

This woman is getting paid $200,000 for doing what Byford calls in his own native Britain euphemistic terms, doing away with redundancies like token booth clerks and putting them on “the field” to help commuters. Which is bloody ironic and hysterical since the idea was already in place, making the Chief Customer Officer position fucking redundant itself!

It can’t be any more transparent that the MTA is more concerned with spinning the optical quality of the transit service than actually running it efficiently.

All this fucking nonsense, squabbling, machinating, marketing and incompetence as the MTA’s debt is now at fucking $38.6 billion dollars.

Fuck the MTA. Nah, it’s already fucked.

 

 

Update:

At a MTA committee board hearing the other day, an official, Stephen Plochochi audaciously revealed that the transit agency recently extended the contracts of corrupted firms that have settled billion dollar suits involving bribery in three nations, the U.S. Army and for half-assed work at a nuclear power plant. They are tasked with upgrading the antiquated and jiggered for slow service for the last 20 years signal system and the renovation of the Cortlandt St. station by the New World Trade Center.

How is the new Chief Customer Officer going to spin this craven bullshit of wanton stupidity and enabling to the commuting public.

Quoted VP Stephen, who clearly doesn’t give a fuck:

“New York City Transit and the MTA as a whole for many, many, many years — for the 30 years that I’ve been here and for many before that — have looked at this as a rehabilitative organization,”

Except when it obviously comes to rehabilitating the essential infrastructure of the subway and the fleet of train cars. Fuck no, it’s to rehabilitate recidivist criminal contractors who are so corrupted and moneyed that they can still thrive and get rewarded for their unethical standards and tactics.

Plochochi said the MTA has a “robust program” for overseeing contractors that includes assigning monitors to ensure “good ethics and compliance” by companies with checkered pasts.

Yes, these firms will be good little boys and girls now that they got another billions of dollars which will surely go to its targeted and intended purpose, even with the MTA’s and the state’s sordid past and present for unchecked wasteful spending and obvious lousy vetting. Actually, the latter is clearly intentional and standard executive-driven procedure at the fucking worst and robustly unprofessional transit system in the universe. Fuck Plochochi, Fuck Byford and fuck the MTA.

 

 

 

 

The Inaugurations Of Co-Mayor Chirlane McCray de Blasio* And The Night Mayor

Screenshot_2020-08-18 Edit Post ‹ Impunity City — WordPress com
Chirlane McCray is just dying for you to hear from her. (telling pic by James Messerschmidt, NY Post)

Last week the city of New York (your city remember) was foisted upon with two new additions to the current administration by our self-exalted mayor de Blasio for appointees no one, sane or insane, brained or brainless, even asked for.

The first one while not actually official was revealing enough and actually conveys total confirmation and the mayor did not even hold back considering how weak, intellectually bereft and dependent he comes off. It wasn’t even a Freudian or regular slip of the tongue, but it sure was inappropriate. And it was announced after he announced the hiring of the new Schools Chancellor a few days after his first pick dropped him like a brick during a press conference.

The mayor’s wife is now the pseudonor Co-Mayor Charlene McCray!

“I want to thank Chirlane for the many, many hours she has put in this effort,” de Blasio said in a statement before adding, “I want to thank First Deputy Mayor Dean Fuleihan, as well. The three of us acted as a team.’’

McCray, City Hall revealed, also sat in on meetings all weekend between her husband and his top aides discussing the appointment. And the first lady was there when de Blasio made Carranza an official offer.

A quote from McCray was included in the press release, too.

“I look forward to working closely with [Carranza] to help all of the inner cities’ children and their families,” she said.

But political observers say that there’s more to McCray’s input in official city business than meets the eye — that it is a bid to elevate her political standing for a possible run for office herself.

“There’s a concerted effort to get her as much exposure as possible,” said a source familiar with McCray’s role at City Hall.

“There’s a clear understanding . . . that these are joint announcements, and Chirlane is going to have a presence and a voice every time one of these appointments is being made.”

NY Post

So this is what the minuscule amount of voters and a majority of non-voters signed up another four years for in addition to de Faustio slacking off, fucking around and lying like a rat since January. Let’s also add being an arrogant self-righteous douchebag too, because he insulted journalists and anyone left in the constituency with common sense by scoffing off any accusations of nepotism by accusing them of being idiots and sexists.
The mayor’s insecurity regarding the news media’s collective intellect is a regular thing but charging them with sexism is a new pathetic low and the Blaz has as much understanding of the term as Spinal Tap did. 

But this is about Chirlie after all. And in her first week as co-mayor, she’s not off to a good start. For her influence in the chancellor pick, Richard Carranza, has not been quite a ladies man or a gentlemen when it comes to dealing with women in the workplace. Since it took less than 24 hours and on International Women’s Day, which the Blaz clearly cited to lash out at the press, to find out that while as the board superintendent in San Francisco he was cheating on his wife at the office and destroyed a female educators career when she confronted him about his salacious affair and later had the school district pay her a $75,000 settlement for the torment and undermining he put her through for exposing the cheating greaseball.

Maybe the Blaz came out inaugurating his wife so he can again deflect blame for his stupid governmental policies and decisions on someone else but that might have been the case all along, although this guy seems a perfect fit for the corrupt cronyism environment in city hall being that Carranza feels he was abdicated from the charges because he didn’t have to pay the settlement out of his wallet but the school district and taxpayers did. Which is in uncanny resemblance of the mayor’s warped justification for using his constituents tax dollars for his expensive personal lawyers for his pay to play court hearings. Because a month before choosing a letch for a schools chancellor they got together and appointed another deputy mayor to de Faustio’s confederacy of useless syncophantic hacks. This one is being used specifically for his fucking wife’s $850 million dollar mental health program THRIVENYC, which to chagrin of the citizenry nobody knows what it is or what it’s even accomplished, judging by the majority of mentally ill homeless people wandering around the streets and subway and the emotional duress everyone struggling to afford living in this city is going through. Although it’s backed by six non-profit groups of which consists of four sorority groups.

Apparently de Faustio and Chirlie are aware of the lack of recognition of THRIVE too. In recognition of the Parkland School Massacre but not of the movement and revolution galvanized by the students there, the mayors arranged to have a town hall meeting with high school students to discuss ways to secure their school’s environment and ensure safety. As the kids were making suggestions for improvements, notably the lack of student counselors and the selective disbursement of metal detectors and addressing their current tribulations, de Faustio kept shutting them down so his wife can impose her THRIVE agenda on them. The kids were not impressed or amused but were thoroughly insulted and undermined. Which will make adapting to the new schools chancellor’s inevitable underwhelming existence much easier.

“I think he disregarded the whole point of this meeting, which was to hear the students out, and I don’t think he did it to the full extent that it should’ve been,” said Ayobami Olabode, 16, a student at Scholars’ Academy in Queens.

“He didn’t really hear us out the way he should have,” Andrea Colon, 17, who had asked the mayor to invest in counselors instead of school safety agents and metal detectors, said. “He was sort of dismissive in a way.”

“I actually hadn’t heard of the Thrive program before,” said Colon, a senior at Rockaway Park High School For Environmental Sustainability. “He kept on bringing that up. But my school definitely does not have that.”

NY Daily News

So instead of hearing out the kids, de Faustio devoted most of his attention to pimping his wife’s program and her freeloading political career. And exploiting a tragedy to promote the expensive THRIVE program to boot and vainly trying to justify it’s existence by blowing off the kids questions just because they didn’t fit the narrative.

For dominating the narrative is the only thing de Faustio has done with aplomb right behind using his office for fundraising and taking bribes for civic services for scumbags. As he recently addressed the idiotic sexists (his words) in the news media by demanding that Chirlie should get a salary for her work which she surreptitiously volunteered for. As if the 300 grand to pay her personal aides and her multiple free ride jaunts to other national cities on the actually elected mayor’s constituents tax dollars is not enough compensation, giving her ample opportunity to boost her national profile and inspiring her intent on running for political office. Which no one fucking asked her to do and no one is fucking interested. And her reported presence (and interference) in over 80 meetings gives the impression that she is not only co-mayor but an agent of the city.

All this chicanery by co-mayor de Faustio is enough to drive you crazy if you let it. So maybe THRIVE will be there for every citizen in the five boroughs to depend on as they try to follow this fugazi mayoral partnership. Maybe Chirlie can get her mental health initiative off the ground now assuming she is running the city for the next few days as her husband has went on another ego trip out of the city for the next few days in four cities as the self-appointed arbiter/activist for progressive policies and politics. And yes, nobody fucking asked him to do that either.

As if two mayors are not enough to tolerate, especially two absolutely shitty oblivious and arrogant mayors, it was announced on a snowy and blustery Wednesday when all networks were reporting on the weather that the new night mayor has been appointed. And she’s a boozy doozy.

https://assets3.thrillist.com/v1/image/2752021/size/tmg-article_default_mobile;jpeg_quality=20.jpg

That’s Ariel Palitz. The new nighttime mayor. The mayor from happy hour to closing time. She’s the mayor when Bill and Chirl go to sleep. And she loves New York, although not it’s residents. She ran a niteclub for 10 years and sat on Lower East Side district community board. Though not experienced in running a political office, she’s pretty adept at political tactics and machinations and exploiting her position of power for selfish means for the benefit of herself and her night club entrepreneur peers. In the last few years she has worked with an event firm specializing in what they dubbed “real estate integrated hospitality services”

Considering it took 5 months since the announcement of this new waste of bureaucracy, besides THRIVE, without a doubt that this pick was thoroughly sought and vetted. This girl is player and she fits this corrupt administration to a dirty T. For her time simultaneously running a club and a chair on the board, the Lower East Side has transformed in the last decade to what is currently a nightly Gilded Age bacchanalia with a bar anywhere you turn your head and take a step christened as Hell Square, an environmental noise and health hazard area that was revolutionized by the new Night Mayor herself being that she ran (and bragged about having) the loudest bar in the district.

Prior to what the drunken radius has devolved to, night mayor Palitz made a ghastly prophecy of what she now will have the humble solemn duty to remediate:

“The East Village is ripe for the picking right now. There’s an opportunity to change the culture and the makeup of the neighborhood from the underground nightlife experience to a high-end clientele.”

Here’s some of that high-end clientele that has changed the makeup of the neighborhood. As documented by the L.E.S. Dwellers, and there’s more where that came from.

And being her recent consulting gig, she will be tasked to handle complaints, ameliorate any disgust by or stem displacement of longtime residents of areas with similar party bar oversaturation, as the NY Times notes:

In her first interview since accepting the post, Ms. Palitz suggested that her stint as the Nightlife Mayor would be slightly more sober and focus less on carousing than on conflict mediation. In today’s New York, gentrification has pitted partygoers against the settled residents of neighborhoods like the Lower East Side of Manhattan and Williamsburg in Brooklyn. In her first official act, Ms. Palitz promised to hold a series of listening tours and entertain the gripes of those who are bothered by the vomit on their streets or the noise at 3 a.m..

Now in charge of a mayoral office with a 12-person advisory board, a $300,000 budget and a salary of $130,000 a year, Ms. Palitz seems to have realized that even a doyenne of New York night life must make a few concessions when joining city government.

What de Blasio and Chirlane has done with hiring Ariel is akin to Trump’s picks to head departments in his plutocabinet in that they hired a woman who has obvious conflicts of interest regarding the nite life industry. And also like relying on a flipped mobster for intel because he knows where the bodies are buried, or in Ariels case where the bodies are puking and pissing and of course, according to her consultant bio, proclaimed ties to real estate. It’s going to be fascinating how that hospitality/real estate integration is going to play here, for it sure as had an effect on the environment of the LES when she was on the board going by the exorbitant rent hikes and new glass towers. And providing an outsourced predatory developer tactic with all the alcoholic idiots yelling and puking in front of residential buildings with idling app driving service cars and limos clogging the streets driving everyone nuts.

Ariel has got a sweet ride going here with a new cushy six figure salary and a budget to finagle with anyhow she pleases. Now with the night mayor officially assigned where it used to be under the purview of the actual elected mayor, de Faustio and Chirlie can focus on the issues of the day in the daylight hours. Well the afternoon hours for he still wastes his entire morning for his daily motorcade two borough trek to Park Slope and then to City Hall. Maybe this short inning middle relief pitching style of governing might have some stability. Have Chirlane govern in the morning, de Faustio in the day, and Ariel at night into the wee hours.

Maybe the city and the citizenry will be able to THRIVE somewhat. Or it will just turn into CrazyTown while it tries to be Fun City 2.0.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Executive Carnage Brings Actual American Carnage: Figurehead Trump’s Disgusting Gerald Ford Moment And Ultimate True Character Reveal After The Latest Mass Murder Involving An Easily Bought AR-15.

See the source imageThe AR-15. Purchasing and owning this thing has more civil rights than the right to speak against it’s indiscriminate distribution.

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

A week after the latest mass murder, this time at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida at the Marjory where 17 students and faculty got shot to death by a homicidal sociopath named Nicholas Cruz, who went through his adolescence expressing fantasies for shooting people and claimed to know areas for precise hits. Who abused his sick mother. Who was part of an extracurricular program shooting class sponsored by the NRA, and who suffered from the mental conditions of autism and depression and was able to purchase the AR-15 rifle legally from a distributor with the ease of buying a burner phone from a bodega or a lotto newsstand. The Trump administration arranged to have a listening session with relatives of the victims of the recent massacre.

As it was an appropriate response to have such a meeting one thing should be clear, this session would not have been possible by the revolutionary reactions of the students and citizens of Parkland. Whilst Trump was busy on his morbid iconic twitter account rattling off his theories and usual deflections, the kids organized protest rallies that called out the bullshit inherent in the defense of current federal gun regulations and the seedy integration of money and politics behind them and the compromised sellout elected leaders who enable it and ratify them.

Actually, two things should be clear, and it was when Figurehead Trump decided to go lampin’ at his Mar-A-Lago resort and hit the links while the funeral and burial processes for the victims were going on a short secret service escorted drive away.

Figurehead Trump, showing thoughts and prayers, now watch this putt.

As expected as these recent gaffes were and how they are every minute Trump opens his mouth and presses his blackberry keyboard, none can be more repugnant than what transpired at the actual session with the bereaved citizens of Parkland, along with other families that experienced the mass shootings of Sandy Hook and ghetto street violence.

Figurehead Trump, the deal artist, the alleged billionaire businessman, the commander in chief with the best words equipped with the asset of mental stability, pulls out a bunch of notes from his jacket while Mike Pence does the instruction, revealing crib notes on the topics about to be discussed.

Image result for trump crib notes Either Trump is showing a sign of senility by writing the number 45 on his cuff as a reminder what number is his presidency, or that is monogrammed there to sell a designer shirt line. Emoluments be damned again. (Carolyn Kaster, A.P.)

That is some zooming there by the photographer from the AP. (You would think it was a rogue CIA mole from the Deep State). As it now confirms all the leaks about the President’s preferred method of reading daily intel briefs, sans pictures and graphics which probably resembles a Howard Johnson’s menu.

And they were just basic questions that could have been asked if one had a conscious or even functioning brain cells.

The man who won the presidency on his first try needs his aides tips on how to address the people devastated over the unnecessary deaths of their kids from a confirmed and armed mentally ill person, a whole week after the attacks. Trump, who proclaimed only he can fix the government actually needs the advice of the grieving group of people on how to handle gun policy and what to say on how to assure them he’s got their attention.

“I hear you”. Trump needs a response written down for him. A dismissive one too.

That’s just what the savvy cameraman caught without the Figurehead’s expectation. It’s was the wretched thing he did during the listening session that was boneheaded and awkward.

https://i1.wp.com/assets.nydailynews.com/polopoly_fs/1.3834423.1519259281!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/article_750/922476024.jpg

During VP Pence’s introduction, Trump pulls out the dotard cue cards from his pocket, giving the immediate impression that he doesn’t read and probably hasn’t read anything in his time in office. It gets more demented when instead of having an aide take them from him after he memorized them on the spot apparently, like say Hope Hicks who was there and who probably wrote the dotard cue card too going by the loopy handwriting, he just places them down on the carpet next to the student sitting next to him!

Later on, while someone was giving an idea on how to close loopholes interfering with background checks to prevent to sell to mentally unstable or recidivist criminal consumers, Trump bends over to pick up his notes, nods his head a bunch of times obviously to feign giving attention (conveying “I hear you”), peruses the papers a bit then sloppily stuffs them into his pocket.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This may be understating it, but this was extremely bad optics which is where the crack media team under Trump immediately got to work. As the White House upload of the session cuts off where Trump picks up the notes and goes to the straight to the guy asking the question and poof! the notes were gone after they were on the floor for a good 50 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

This could be Figurehead Trump’s Gerald Ford moment. Although more disgusting and unfunny, albeit expected. On national TV, President Ford was exiting Air Force One and suddenly and comically slipped on the steps. Granted it wasn’t his fault and it was raining but it’s the only lasting memory of the 38th President which was immortalized in comic infamy by Chevy Chase on Saturday Night Live, who did not even wear makeup to portray him but just falling on his ass was enough for everyone to get the joke.

This is stretching it a bit, kind of like everyone in the media and the feds trying to tie Trump’s election victory to Russian interference. But the thing that should show that this is Trump at his absolute worst and how he should not be taken seriously or credibly ever again, even after everything he’s done as President and his whole fucking life.

And that is the gravity of the situation. And when it comes to Trump, gravity itself, for he has never felt it until now.

It has exposed these elected nimrods assigned to lead and legislate that they have no fucking clue how to stem the next mass shooting. For Trump is bandying about arming teachers and even janitors to get weapons training to defend themselves and the students. Which will naturally result in more money for the gun industry and probably the military contractor complex too, being that they have to get the skills to ward off the next attack. Which will be majorly convenient for Education Secretary Betsy Devos and her brother and Blackwater CEO Erik Prince. Making this plan derivative of the main plot of Under Siege, where Steven Segal was able to kill a terror group who had no idea he was a chef that was a Navy Seal.

It has exposed that everyone knew this kid was a danger to himself and society, as all the warnings were there for most of Cruz’s adolescent life even until the day before he invaded the school and went on his killing spree. Which was made possible by warped state legislation ratified 7 years ago that would levee fines on town mayors who tried to set their own regulations regarding the purchasing of guns. That even with the presence of police, he was still able to get inside the school and murder 17 and wound 14 others. That even with social media and all the unchecked surveillance of it, Cruz was still able to carry out his slaughter.

And with this domestic debacle resulting from the massacre, everyone touched and traumatized that day in Parkland have rose up and are pointing out the brazen hypocrisy and arbitrariness of this nation’s security system and the nefarious role of donor money. Because the mass shooting at that high school has exposed Trump’s failed domestic policies and the deadly consequences of the NRA’s expenditures to influence the Figurehead and the hacks in the Congress and Senate to overturn regulations regarding mental qualifications and criminal background checks that has made it easier to own a military grade weapon.

It has galvanized the town of Parkland and wrought awareness and information from voices that are pissed off yet whose words are measured and articulated with eloquence. People like Andrew Pollack who brought the fact that he can’t get on an airplane with a bottle of water yet anyone can get a machine gun. And the new activist youth of America, kids like Sam Zeif, David Hoss and the outstanding Emma Gonzalez bringing up the hard facts that most of the mainstream news media would not even broach.

 

 

 

In fact, this massacre has brought out all the kids nationwide to rise up and organize. This movement and revolution has a face for it in Samantha Fuentes who dismissed Trump’s facetious comforting and bravely went on national television with her sharpnel laid scars and wounds

Video thumbnail for MSD school shooting victim Samantha Fuentes shares her story

As for the defenders of the false faith justifying the civilian ownership of military weapons, the spineless millionaire NRA Chairman Wayne Le Pierre emerged from his gilded palace and to his safe space at the CPAC Covention to decry and cry about the new general hatred against the gun lobby by conjuring up red scare accusations and calling people socialists against the second amendment right to bear arms.

Yet again, La Pierre and even that despicable coward cheerleader Dana Loesch conveniently gloss over the first part of the second amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

No doubt about the right of the people. But the well-regulated militia? What La Pierre and many, many others are doing is instead of separating the the two are conflating them. People are not a well-regulated militia, (such as people are not corporations). A well-regulated militia is established by the regulations inherent in them.The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines are a well-regulated militia. A person is not but is instilled in the right to own a gun. The NRA lobby, not so coinicidentally is against any regulations to insure that guns remain only in responsible hands of people of sound mind, which goes against all their claims, including Figurehead Trump, is what they interpret as the main problem and cause of mass shootings. The NRA through their obstinance are actually putting responsible gun owners rights in jeopardy with their manic spending preventing needed regulations to protect the public and prevent the disenfranchisement of said rights from the inevitable overreach they fear. Which has actually happened with the first and fourth amendments under the Patriot Act and the recent re-implementation of section 702 of the FISA amendment.

Which makes Figurehead Trump, in his embrace of the mistaken ideology of the second amendment and his widely reviled solution at preventing another mass killing that does not involve the government approved killings in senseless wars in other nations, all you have to do is remember his awkward inappropriate actions at the listening session. The guy does not care and can’t think for himself.

Despite his broken campaign promise to be a populist independent leader because of the security of his purported wealth, turns out to be a broke ass president reliant on the foul moneyed donors who gave him his job and on his staffers who vainly try to make him look sympathetic and concerned for those victimized by their lunatic self-serving and self-enriching policies.

Trump needs notes to show sympathy and garner ideas. There is no doubt what a real-time fraudulent president he is, fraudulent business man he was and a fraud he is as a human being.

He is exposed now. The wind that blew his Rumplestilsken hair off his bald head weeks ago has now been replaced by the winds of change being wrought by the kids of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High.

 

This time. The kids are really all right.

New Bad Days 46: Like It And Learn To Love It, Rikers Island Shutdown Is Underway As It Was Announced 60 Hours After A Group Of Five Gangbangers Crippled A Correction Officer; A Class Size Group Of Kids Beat Down A Homeless Man On The A Train; A Dead Baby Abandoned In A Park; Two Women Beat Down A Pregnant Woman And Slam A Door On Her Feet; Rap Crew Films Shitty Video And Shows Off Their Stash While Imprisoned; Super Crazy Guy Jumps Roofs In Bed-Stuy And Multiple Random And Intentional Slashings And Deadly Domestic Disputes.

https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/rikers1.jpgRikers Island, pariah government center on scrumptious speculative real estate.

From the elected denizens occupying City Hall, they have begun the dizzying ill conceived official program to shut down Rikers Island and transfer all convicts present and future to four jails in the boroughs of Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan. But not Staten Island, because supposedly no one commits crimes there.

This is where the Mini-Rikers will be:

  • Manhattan Detention Center, 125 White Street, Manhattan, 10013 (The Tombs)
  • Brooklyn Detention Center, 275 Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn, 11201
  • Queens Detention Center, 126-01 82nd Avenue, Kew Gardens, 11415
  • NYPD Tow Pound, 320 Concord Avenue, Bronx, 10454

This transition is suppose to take a decade or if crime drops first. But apparently these fauxgressive hacks aren’t even going to wait for the latter, especially now that Gov. Andy has decided to up the ante with his jackass boisterousness and wants Rikers shut down earlier than that.

Mayor de Blasio and Speaker Corey Johnson announced an agreement today to move forward on closing Rikers Island and creating a smaller, safer and fairer borough-based jail system. Together with the Council Members representing these areas, the Mayor and Speaker have agreed to a single public review process for four proposed sites in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens. These sites together will provide off-Island space for 5,000 detainees, and will include the three existing DOC facilities in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, as well as a new site in the Bronx located at 320 Concord Avenue in Mott Haven.

“This agreement marks a huge step forward on our path to closing Rikers Island,” said Mayor de Blasio. “In partnership with the City Council, we can now move ahead with creating a borough-based jail system that’s smaller, safer and fairer. I want to thank these representatives, who share our vision of a more rehabilitative and humane criminal justice system that brings staff and detainees closer to their communities.”

“Today is a historic day, as we are yet one step closer to closing Rikers Island.  The New York City Council is proud to have spearheaded the historic Close Rikers movement by creating the Lippman commission and passing legislation enacting many of its recommendations. The Council has also funded innovative programming to keep cases out of the criminal justice system altogether, such as the CLEAR and HOPE programs, which provide treatment instead of incarceration to those with substance abuse issues. We all know that closing jails on Rikers means opening more humane, community-based facilities elsewhere. I am proud to stand with my Council colleagues and thank them for their support on this crucial issue. I look forward to working closely with Mayor de Blasio, my Council colleagues representing these communities, and the communities themselves in finally achieving our shared goal of closing Rikers Island,” said Speaker Corey Johnson.

The Office Of The Mayor

This is being done because the violent environment and corruption in Rikers has become too endemic. As opposed to the equally well know graft in the city and state government high offices for a century and at a pinnacle today? Is this really what voters, meaning the less than 25% who showed up to elect these dusted democrats, really asked for from them.

What are the costs going to be to retrofit those four jails and how they are going to manage to fit all those prisoners and even staff. Especially what the speculative costs will be to convert that garage in the Bronx into a functioning high security apparatus. Most essential is how this goal of 5,000 convicts going to be accomplished to justify these transfers.

As simplistic and cynical as it sounds, which this utopian program resembles the former in spades, the only way this can be achieved is by not convicting anyone who commits crimes it seems. Which de Blasio has already assured with recent accusations by a police captain of stations lessening crime charges and the recent and similar doctoring and reclassifying of crimes committed at homeless shelters

As for sounding like the latter, it has been known for a few years that the Gentrification Industrial Complex are salivating at the prospects of all that scrumptious real estate waiting to be taken. Even the Corrections Officers Union President Elias Husamudeen smells a rat and sees this for the fauxgressive ruse it is. Although coming from the namesake of the commission report that inspired the Rikers shutdown, Johnathan Lippman, it ain’t like those interested in all that city property are shy about their passively heinous ulterior motives masking as a humanity cause:

…former New York State chief judge Jonathan Lippman, who heads the New York City Council-created criminal justice reform commission that oversees the Rikers-study committee, said it’s only natural to explore “potentially doing some of the things we’ve done with other vacant, large pieces of land, whether it be benefiting public health, education, research institutions.”

But he also sought to emphasize, and then re-emphasize, that real estate is in no way the central focus of his committee.

“At the outset, let me say that the future of Rikers Island as a physical location follows—and certainly doesn’t precede—improving our jail system,” he said.

“The political center of this will be about how we make the system more humane and just,” he said, “and at the same time recognize that you do have a very strategically placed and valuable piece of real estate there that could have a multitude of public policy purposes to develop it.”

None of these elected idiots surely not have thought through this but predictably are following de Faustio’s (bottom) line. Particularly Speaker Corey Johnson who in just a short month after exhorting that he was going to be a bulldog critic and a check on the mayor’s machinations and decisions has devolved into the typical partisan loyal neoliberal lapdog he is. And Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz who has officially thrown her hands up and quit and gave her approval, selling out her constituents and her credibility.

While we all want to live in a city or even a world without crime, this program is being foisted on the public without a clarified thought or what the ramifications might be or how much the goddamn new Mini-Rikers are going to cost.

And one huge fact is if that when this transfer officially begins, will that endemic violent and corrupt prison culture will carry on in the new jails or will exacerbate. Because this is clearly not going to happen overnight or most certainly, well, never.

Because in Rikers Island, a correction officer was attacked and beat down by five prisoners as a guard in the same room just stood there and watched and did not help his fellow officer, who wound up with severe spinal and neck injuries from the savage gang attack. The first one who barged in the room planned the premeditated the attack during a phone call according to another inmate.

We shall see how this shit enfolds. This post illustrates that this isn’t starting off well.

Again in Crown Heights, a man dressed as a superhero with a costume ensemble of sandals, long johns, bermuda shorts, a ripped wifebeater t-shirt, a beach towel and a banana was jumping from roof to roof and was detained by cops after he posed with his trusty potassium power source on a fire escape and was about to jump and defy gravity and lose.

Mission Virtually Accomplished: The Lefferts Blvd. Elevator Is Activated.

https://t5.rbxcdn.com/31a61f44235fbdc6d2ed9378180f39dbhttps://img.etsystatic.com/il/31dcb3/833744797/il_570xN.833744797_4vjq.jpg

South Ozone Park, N.Y., U.S.A.

In what I admit could be an abberation in the usual posts that get written here, here is an actual good news bulletin and sign of albeit late ass civic progress. As reported here since this digital publication’s inception, it took almost 4 years, but the main entrance of the Lefferts Blvd has completed with the activation of the elevator! And it actually is quite shiny and nice. It officially got turned on about a few weeks ago about 4 months ahead of the proposed 3th quarter deadline.

Check it out!!!

Hard to believe this took almost half a decade. But at least the essential part of the station is done being that it’s by the death defying horror show intersection that is Liberty Avenue and Lefferts Blvd where two accordion buses stop every day, making egress to the street finally a satisfying routine.

All is not well though, for it’s still the worst fucking transit system in the universe. For there are still bollards, barricades, equipment, vehicles and miscellaneous debris and materials cluttering the curbs taking up two blocks worth of parking spaces. For the station exit and entrance at the west side of the station are still under renovation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why the continued cantankerous position with this? Because it looks like the elevator finally got the long overdue fast track initiative when the new sheriff of the MTA came to town from Toronto, Andy Byford who is a big stickler when it comes to the handicapped commuters. For MTA brass clearly noticed what he accomplished by making Toronto’s transit system entirely handicap accessible while cleaning up his new office.

It is a tad surprising that they got the elevator operating, but all that street hoarding under the El looks like it’s going to remain there a while and perhaps might pile up more. When I saw the first card sensor on a turnstile and the dumbass energy wasting digital screens inside train cars a few weeks before the grand debut of the Lefferts Lift, I almost plotzed.

 

 

 

The rush to get these out there is pretty goddamn stupid and no doubt at huge expense, especially that the screens were installed on the old cars that are being planned to be replaced by a new fleet and the payment method won’t be implemented until 2019 and has the potential to fail and be prone to errors. The MTA decision to start a rummage sale of all their “antique” discarded signs, seats, benches and garbage cans, is a pathetic shitty way to start to re-accrue these moronic expenditures. The funny thing is that those antique garbage cans, which were misguidedly decided to be removed from the platforms in an attempt to curb litter and rodent colonies, can obviously still be useful.

Cynical observations aside it is a timely tiny miracle the Lefferts Station entrance got done, for the MTA is still having massive FUBAR snafus, being all the other various problems the system has got going for it this year.

Like the new countdown clocks which are already showing consistent inaccuracies and placed in ridiculous hard to view spots.

A thorough 21st century modernization of the Penn Station hub has exhibited a massive wall to wall crack on the floor just a short few months after the state of the art passageway opened.

That a lot of delays are actually caused by commuters looking down at or diddling their fingers on their cellphones as they enter and exit trains, giving the effect of a herd of lobotomized sheep or herd of cattle slowly marching to getting shed or milked or to their certain death.

That small businesses along the north elevated tracks in Astoria have lost 50% of their customers because of the storage of materials and vehicles for way overdue renovations hogging parking and sidewalk spaces.

And of course the obvious long overdue shutdown of the irresponsibly neglected Canarsie Tunnel on the L line. As doomsday draws near in just another year, the MTA and the city still doesn’t have a concrete plan for commuters, especially the effect it will have to the already crushed sardine boxes on the Queens and Brooklyn lines. It looks like the appointed subway ambassadors will have to update their itineraries and probably have to don body armor or chainmail to ward off the frustrated masses.

But most fortunate of all for the citizenry reliant on the Lefferts Station to start and end their grinding workdays and the easement of physical stress on the aged and infirm is that it has evaded the perpetual distraction nonsensical battle of half-wits and directionless obstructionist feud over transit and transportation funding and policy making between the neoliberal bags of dead dicks and shit Mayor William de Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Mario’s son has gotten deserved heat for his rush to open the four stop 2nd avenue for his grand opening suarez. Since that day and his proclaimed summer of hell, he has allocated and spent billions on boondoggles, minor transit extensions, and prioritized profligate ornamental improvements over infrastructure improvements in the city’s dilapidated subways, like the aforementioned newly cracked and ruined floor at Penn Station.

There is the recent decision by Cuomo through his intern commissioner Joe Lotha to add a third track on the LIRR between two close stops for a (not so) cool $1.8 billion. There was the not surprising revelation that the cashless and humanless toll booths in the past 5 years incurred over 80 million dollars in lost fares and fees.

And for shits and giggles in an egregious stunt that would make Chris Christie share his taco bowl with Mario’s son, the governor emailed commands to his MTA staffers relayed to transit supervisors to defer most of the blame for power failure transit delays to Con Edison by cooking the books on the number of them four-fold just so he can justify his tainted stats while doing his occasional Excelsior shirt sleeves rolled up subterranean photo op to divert attention from the generally known fact of the consistency of the antique signal system breakdowns.

And the topper might be what Guv’ner Andy announced in the state of the state and of his delirious mind when he promised to build another subway tunnel going to Red Hook, Brooklyn by extending the local 1 train from downtown Manhattan to coincide with the prospective hyper-development plan in a hurricane flood zone to build affordable luxury towers and a park there for the next hipster pilgrimage. This was considered as Trump’s tax cut law, the Oligarch Welfare law, will put a stop to that plan just like it officially did on the extension of the 2nd Avenue Q line to 125th Street.

Mario’s son’s costly congestion pricing plan to fund transit took a big hit when Doug Schifter took his life in protest of this extra tax on struggling independent cab and delivery drivers. And de Faustio millionaire tax plan, which he pilfered from assemblyman Michael Ginaris, is seeing absolutely no support at all.

As for the perjuring mayor of the city where the subway runs, well, apparently it did not deem worth a mention either an acknowledgement in the new city budget which actually exceeded 4 billion dollars from last year. Yet somehow his staff and his real estate donors lobby group is still pushing for the BQX line to get built despite the lead cheerleader quitting on them and a study detailing it’s unsustainability and ballooning costs and it’s unpopularity from the furious residents living by the prospective tracks.

Mayor de Faustio stubbornly refuses to contribute to fund the subway re the emergency plan put forth by Lotha for the city to contribute a little more than half of the $800 million needed to improve it (It actually should be more), for the reason he repeats that the state should pay for it entirely and that they squandered earlier city funding. He would have a point and a justification to his obstinancy if he wasn’t supporting that cruddy BQX, and how he ordered his MTA picks to blow off $200 million for station fixes  because the stations he wanted done were for areas that are in his gentrification fostering and escalating mandatory inclusionary zoning plans for East New York and the South Bronx.

Although de Faustio did find some loot, about a couple million, for an express bus route to Rikers Island.

This summer, the city will also test-run express buses shuttling people directly to and from Rikers out of two public-transit hubs in Manhattan and Brooklyn. The jailhouse jitneys will cost taxpayers $846,000 this fiscal year and $1.69 million each year after that. The DOC wouldn’t yet say if the shuttles will be free to ride.

N.Y. Post

Both them do share common ground when it comes to the rent and food burdened poor straphangers, since they both saw no need to alleviate their struggles by denying them extra transfers and reduced-fare cards. But as for the funding concerning the maintenance and sustenance of the worst fucking transit system in the universe, of which both are mostly responsible for it’s status, their sniveling petty little rivalry continues as riders get fucked over for another year and possibly infinity.

065

For now, the Lefferts Station is the only aspect of this fucked up transit system of this broke ass city and state that is worth admiring. Even if it’s only for the few minutes entering and exiting it during the elongated overcrowded ride to Manhattan and back. Making it the approximation of a commuting shit sandwich.

It was a four year wait, but ultimately, as with all the chaos that will ensue with all mentioned, it was actually worth it.

It will break down in a month or two though.

The Blue Wall Of Insouciance: Police Captain Exposes NYPD Crime Reclassification Malfeasance

https://i0.wp.com/www1.nyc.gov/assets/home/images/press_release/2016/February/pr199-16.jpgLiars with statistics. They like what they prefer to see.

NY Daily News: NYPD captain claims some cops are fudging crime stats to advance their careers, igniting police investigation

Police brass are investigating claims by a veteran captain who alleges that some NYPD commanders are misclassifying felonies to hold down crime statistics in a bid to further their careers.

Capt. Marash Vucinaj has gathered 156 cases over the past two years from multiple commands that he contends show a pattern of downgrading some felony-level crimes to misdemeanors. The crimes include thefts and attempted thefts, assaults and assaults on cops. He does not claim the manipulation extends to murders and rapes.

The purpose, he said, is to shift crimes out of the all-important index crime category — made up of murder, rape, robbery, assault, burglary, grand larceny and auto theft.

 Among the methods he claims he has seen:

  • Classifying incidents where cops are injured by suspects as resisting arrest, rather than assault.
  • Classifying grand larcenies as lost property and ignoring details that suggest a crime took place.
  • Classifying incidents where someone purposefully shot at someone but missed as “investigate shots fired,” reckless endangerment or criminal mischief.
  • Classifying incidents where a would-be thief slipped his hand into someone’s pocket or bag as misdemeanor “jostling” rather than attempted grand larceny.
  • Compressing several crimes with separate victims into one complaint report.
  • Failing to record crimes in the city handled by other law enforcement agencies.

 

High-ranking police officials sharply disputed Vucinaj’s claims of any widespread downgrading of crime. “I take serious offense at these allegations that crime reports aren’t taken right because cops shed their blood for these crime reports,” said Dermot Shea, the chief of crime control strategies.

“It goes against everything we’re trying to do to deploy our resources. We need those crime reports to deploy appropriately.”

 

A few days after touting and actually celebrating the record low murder rate (just 290 dead, a murder every 36 hours, hooray!), our NYPD of this/your city is under new scrutiny for downgrading the severity of crime statistics.

The creativity behind this according to Captain Vucinaj is disturbingly and conspiratorially widespread, showing an insidious sophistication that resembles the craft and skill sets of the biggest public relations firms. For example, Mayor de Faustio’s buddies in Berlin/Rosen.

Captain Vucinaj’s study revealed drawn down and peculiar reclassifying. Like shootings, targeted and crossfire, being filed as criminal mischief, basically associating sporadic gunfire with throwing eggs or toilet paper on Halloween. Shootings also qualified under the redundantly described reckless endangerment. The severity of such lethal activity got conveniently and literally lessened as long as the shots don’t hit or kill anybody.

Like how four people were held up at knife point and robbed and how three women had their wallets lifted and both were filed as one robbery because it was committed by one suspect.

Speaking of lifting wallets and also cellphones, the latter seeing a great increase because of it’s ubiquity and exposure, crime reports fell under the term “jostling” if the victims happened to robbed while asleep, bumped into and even with the perp just putting his hand in a purse or pocket, or classified as lost property instead of the standard, serious and accurate charge of grand larceny. Because your cherish personal belongings aren’t that essential you materialists, especially those fancy phones containing all your vital personal data and information.

The standout and most egregious of criminal activity is the diminishing of resisting arrest. What was previously classified as felony assault resulting from injuries caused during struggles was marked down to misdemeanor assault according to Capt. Vucinaj’s probe while working in the Transit Division. A remarkable amount of over 2,200 incidents out of over 3.500 involved a cop getting injured during an arrest with a rambunctious suspect in the span of 6 months.

Why that outstanding statistic is not revealed is not disturbing enough. But it makes a shitload of sense of why perpetrators are emboldened to go down with a fight before getting cuffed.

Similar altercations have happened in the last few months when a chump knocked over a cop after he was stopped jumping the turnstile when his train arrived, and a mentally ill man engaged in a struggle with two cops on a platform, causing one of the cops to fall down the stairs trying to apprehend him as he fled.

What’s perplexing is that these machinations are being ordered by the top brass of the precincts.More perplexing is that cops react with fervor and fury when a colleague gets shot or injured and this is going to encourage, as it has already, more skells to battle with cops and resist arrest. And it puts the cops on the street in more precarious and dangerous positions and situations, it may lead to more excessive use of force or another senseless, preventable and ultimately galvanizing fatality. The chiefs overseeing these crime spins are putting the lives of citizens and cops at more risk.

As with the standard procedure for investigating crime patterns, these markdowns gain more validation and credulity considering Deputy Inspector Peter Rose, recently promoted from captain from his precinct in Greenpoint. The same Inspector Rose who marginalized/reclassified the meaning of rape by stating that being raped by someone you know or dated is not as serious as being raped by a stranger (you can always depend on the kindness and aggressive sexual advances of those familiar with you, to misquote Tennessee Williams). Nearby in Bushwick, a woman had tremendous difficulty shaking off a stalker because the precinct she reported to kept giving her conflicting advice to avoid writing up her experience and told her flat out that she was wasting her time. An almost exact treatment by two precincts was given to a woman who was assaulted on the train because of the fact that the attack occurred when the train was moving as officers gave her conflicting excuses of where to file a complaint.

As with all great stories of the process of law enforcement and justice, there has to be a motive behind this. Maybe an ulterior motive. And it could only be, albeit cynically, is to make the neighborhoods virtually safe for habitation for market rate renting and home and condo ownership. As recent reports show a herculean percentage of whites moving into neighborhoods were crime was rampant in the bad old decades of the 70’s and 80’s like in Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights and Bushwick. And with the recent hyper-development in the South Bronx, Jamaica, Queens and the MIH zoning development being pushed by the city in East New York and East Harlem it is sure to get virtually safer there soon too.

It sure looks like the overlords of real estate are defining the charges, because all those nasty murders and muggings will make moneyed individuals think twice about living in these new posh burghs.

And these methods and stats seem to be in sync with sociopolitical and city planning interest from elected officials and those gadabouts in development and real estate for the  (quasi-)imminent closing of Rikers Island.

Captain Vucinaj should be highly commended for his due diligence for this irresponsible white washing and fudging of the stats, and the distressing fact that Compstat, like all technology, is not, never was and never will be infallible and can be easily taken advantaged of by the minds and hands of conniving humans. And since the persecution and casting out of Detective Frank Serpico, Captain Vucinaj has unfortunately become just another victim of the perpetual Blue Wall Of Silence and the sad, maddening culture of unquestioned exclusivity and fraternity of the NYPD.

Privately, police sources said, Vucinaj is known as a stickler for the rules and is not well-liked. “Cops don’t like him, his peers don’t like him, and no one wants to work with him,” one police source said. “Look at how frequently he’s been transferred.”Vucinaj, 45, has 24 years on the job and is the highest-ranking active-duty officer ever to publicly make such claims. A captain since 2009, he has been in 10 commands in the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn.From 2004 to 2007, he was assigned to Interpol in Lyon, France, by then-Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly. He also commanded the special frauds squad and was twice selected to help write promotional exams. He has never been formally disciplined.For the past six months, however, he has been marooned in a do-nothing post in Transit Borough Brooklyn without an office phone, he says, as retaliation for reporting crime stat manipulation and other misconduct by commanders to Internal Affairs and the Quality Assurance Division — the unit that audits NYPD crime stats.All too often, the NYPD retaliates rather than investigates when officers report internal misconduct, and that sure looks like what’s happening here,” said Christopher Dunn, associate legal director of the New York Civil Liberties Union.“Instead of going after Captain Vucinaj, the department should be getting to the bottom of his reports, which come from a high-level official and raise serious concerns about downgrading and other wrongdoing.”The last time chicanery like this was going on was when it was exposed by a regular cop, Adrian Schoolcraft,  who also exposed endemic corruption involving ticket and arrest quotas, and the reclassifying and lessening serious charges of those arrests, arbitrary and retaliatory orders and assignments, the unconstitutional usage of stop question-and frisk and disregarding citizens complaints of vagrant and criminal activity. For doing his duty to protect and serve the public and not the culture of corruption fostered and enabled by precinct command and control, he was taken from his apartment by his fellow officers in the Emergency Services Unit and had him thrown into a psych ward at Jamaica Hospital in an attempt to get him institutionalized. That idiotic CIA-style rendition mission cost the city $600,000.This time it’s a decorated Captain and a city being run by an inveterate liar mayor. Although fortunately for Captain Vucinaj, he is protected by his high brass rank.As with all great stories of the process of law enforcement and justice, there has to be a motive behind this. Maybe an ulterior motive. And it could only be, albeit cynically, is to make the neighborhoods virtually safe for habitation for market rate renting and home and condo ownership. As recent reports show a herculean percentage of whites moving into neighborhoods were crime was rampant in the bad old decades of the 70’s and 80’s like in Bed-Stuy, Crown Heights and Bushwick. And with the recent hyper-development in the South Bronx, Jamaica, Queens and the MIH zoning development being pushed by the city in East New York and East Harlem it is sure to get virtually safer there soon too. This isn’t standard procedure, this is a conspiracy.It’s like there is new blue wall being built next to one of silence. A bigger blue wall of insouciance. 

 

A Christmas Corral Of The U.S. Treasury: Trump Signs Oligarch Welfare Bill Into Law

https://i2.wp.com/media.breitbart.com/media/2017/12/trump-signs-640x480.pngLike a sign of overcompensating for, you know, the signature gets hyuger every time he writes it.

Washington D.C., United States Of America Under Financial Totalitarianism

Lucy Van Pelt: I know how you feel about all this Christmas business, getting depressed and all that. It happens to me every year. I never get what I really want. I always get a lot of stupid toys or a bicycle or clothes or something like that.

Charlie Brown: What is it you want?

Lucy Van Pelt: Real estate.

                                                                                                                                    Charles Schulz

It was written, rewritten and rewritten, then it was signed (wow was it signed), and it is done. The Oligarch Welfare Bill is now the unadulterated law of the land.

It was done with relative ease, since it didn’t even require a thorough reading by the establishment Republicans or the cooperation nor the presence of the establishment Democrats and Bernie Sanders in the final days of crafting this Piece Of Shit bill. All it took to barrel it through was to bribe Bob Corker by adding a last second provision tax break for pass through income via LLC’s, virtual company entities that work more like tools in making revenue in the business of real estate, which the retiring Senator accrued millions of dollars in while he has been a public servant.

It turned out the reason for Corky’s nay vote the last time was that this provision was not in the despicable bill’s house version and was added and authored by Utah’s Sen. Orrin Hatch, a man from the poor people and the chicken coop. So much for the senator taking a moral stand against Trump and massive deficits.

Senator Hatch was not only thinking of Corky and his aide, but himself and his wife and a posse of other GOP senators and house representatives with collectively millions of dollars accrued from real estate and equity holdings to profit immensely even more from the Oligarch Welfare Law (haven’t heard much reporting on how or which elected Democrat members will profit from their real estate holdings if they have them though). Including standout young’n house speaker Paul Ryan, who has been champing at the bit to get this bill created and ratified so the donors he sucks up to can now repatriate their massive tax avoiding wealth, collectively worth 3 trillion dollars, that have been trapped on their island shelters and lower taxed nations at the generous lower rate now instituted.

With all that hoarded money free at last, it can then flow through their LLC’s untouched by the Feds. Leading to more gentrification of the cities where they have invested properties in, which will cause more high end speculation. It will also kill small businesses like restaurants and bars, for LLC’s are also involved in dining and nightlife establishments too.

Now that their collaborated powerball winning legislation is now law, they are now (the only ones) celebrating. And since the Oligarch Welfare Law also includes massive tax breaks for alcohol distribution, they will surely doing shots with 100 year old scotch, bathing in 50 year old wine, and showering each other with the finest high end champagne.

The biggest winner is of course the elected and currently serving President (and his plutocabinet members). Continuing his lifelong streak since birth of privileged good fortune. And it’s a good thing too, since some of his branded properties have removed his ubiquitous name off of their buildings, which might have cost him quite a lot of cash (it’s the only evidence that he has divested from his businesses, by being forced to). With the passage and his ridiculous giant signature, which resembles a pathological liar’s lie detector chart pattern, ratifying it, the money will continue to flow through his world wide web of shell companies, ensuring and his billionaire status and a nice tax payer funded nest egg for his next of kin and their next of kin.

As for everyone else, the first year might be fine if you don’t own a home in New York, New Jersey or California, with the doubling of the standard deduction, but all those minor token tax cuts come to a screeching halt in a little less than a decade to justify the exorbitant costs of Oligarch Welfare Law, which with all the speculation on how it will make up for the 6 trillion dollars with all of the cash concentrated for the top earners by happenstance does not account the costs of future military conflicts or the catastrophic effects from hurricanes, sea level rise and land erosion and the long promised trillion dollar infrastructure plan Trump touted days after the white power siege of Charlottesville, will effect the nation’s budget in the next 5 years as these cuts get bigger for the top. Maybe the reason why they have not ended DACA is because, well, they need those kids to contribute to the redistribution of wealth with their weekly paychecks when they become adults. Maybe that will put a stop to build the new Wall Of Mexico (Nah).

So once you get your returns in 2019, don’t spend it too fast. Hell, don’t spend it at all if you are able to avoid sickness or injury, or from a climate disaster, no matter how impossible it is. For it’s the same logic that the avaricious, self-serving and donor-serving members of Congress utilized to craft this odious, rancid law. And they are not even done, for they are now concocting their B plan to fund it if these tax cuts cost the nation’s budget to implode. In fact this plan was implemented 2 weeks before they wrote the bill, knowing full well they won’t have the funds, current and speculative to finance them.

The Washington Post: Congressional Republicans are laying the groundwork to overhaul welfare programs for the poor

Republican lawmakers are preparing plans to restructure America’s welfare system, including putting new limits on who’s eligible for anti-poverty programs such as food stamps and housing benefits.

The details of the planned overhaul are still being determined, but congressional Republicans have already introduced policy proposals that would impose new work requirements on some of America’s welfare programs. Last year, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Tex.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) unveiled a poverty plan as part of Ryan’s “A Better Way” agenda, which also called for the imposition of new work requirements.

The plans at the time were largely markers of future intention, signaling the party’s vision but not indicative of an imminent push for legislative action.

Something tells me this is going to take some filibustering  from the Dems to nip this and kill this in the bud if they have the spine (nah.) Extreme filibustering.

Figurehead Trump did not even wait to sign this. In all certainty he also didn’t fucking read it. In his golden ukelele string maned covered head, he wanted to fulfill his promise to sign the bill before Christmas. The thing is of course that the promise he was most concerned about, after all the other failed ones regarding immigration and travel bans, was the promise to enhance his personal wealth. This is the fleshed out, current reality based adaptation of Dickens’ Christmas Carol, except that Scrooge sleeps through the four ghosts that invade his dreams and continues hoarding his wealth siphoned from the masses. As the timid elected Democrats, collectively resembling the meek assistant Ratchett, let him get away with this shit without true assertion and protest.

So forget about any Christmas cheer and gift giving in the lower and middle classes in the near future. Don’t want to forget those that yearn for higher education. For we have to pay their fair share now and our children and their paychecks are the future. Extreme fair share. Hopefully us proles will be able to hoard our money as well as the higher society populace of corporate executives, shareholders and of course our chosen members of legislative and executive public service did.
