Johnson & Johnson Made A Shit Vaccine

NY Post

Federal health agencies will temporarily stop using Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose vaccine after six women developed blood clots, including one who died, according to officials and a new report Tuesday. 

The Food and Drug Adminstration announced the pause, saying there’ve been a half-dozen reports of a “rare & severe type of blood clot” in patients who received the vaccine. 

The clots were observed along with reduced platelet counts, making the usual treatment for blood clots — the blood thinner heparin — potentially “dangerous.”

“Right now, these adverse events appear to be extremely rare,” the agency tweeted in a joint statement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Those affected were six women, between the ages of 18 and 48, who developed the clots within about two weeks of vaccination, the New York Times reported.

One died and a second in Nebraska was hospitalized in critical condition.

People who received the J&J vaccine who are experiencing severe headache, abdominal pain, leg pain or shortness of breath within three weeks after receiving the jab are advised to contact their health care provider.

The feds hope the pause will serve as a strong signal to states to do the same.

“We are recommending a pause in the use of this vaccine out of an abundance of caution,” the FDA said. “Treatment of this specific type of blood clot is different from the treatment that might typically be administered.”

Isn’t that just fucking dandy. But is it really so stunning on why that so many problems have happened so fast since this vac was rolled out only over a month ago? Although it’s sure seems that way because government officials are trying so desperately to end this pandemic and the new normal lifestyles of masks and distancing we are still living in despite the amount of people inoculated so far. It was sure a feat to be able to convince the general public that a vaccine that was 30% less effective to fight COVID than the Pfizer and Moderna was just as safe, giving the public the impression that the single jab will do the job of the documented superior products that were first fast tracked and rolled out.

Too bad J & J didn’t live up to the hype,as proven in the most recent tale of two inoculations in two towns in Brooklyn. A pretty White lady from upscale Williamsburg managed to get the J&J on the first day it showed up at the Javits Center (even though being 30 years old, she wasn’t eligible yet) and after going upstate and spending some minutes riding an escalator at a Target by Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park, she got the symptoms and got COVID again anyway. A few days later, a 39-year-old man from Bath Beach got COVID positive while working only a few weeks after he got the J & J from a site in East New York and he decided to get it because of the convenience and now regrets not waiting for the Pfizer or Moderna vacs to become available.

And why is that? Because these two people, who at their ages are most susceptible to the variants because of their capability to infect, believed that the best vaccine is not the one that is available, as recommended by NYC’s doctor and health commissioner Dave Chokshi, who himself did not get vaccinated when the first two vaccines were out despite his line of work and how he’s around people working in person indoors and then got infected with COVID. After recovering, he got the J& J.  But what kind of health commissioner gets infected with a disease he’s supposed to advise everyone from avoiding? An idiot that’s what.

But it’s not entirely his fault because he works and is a willful toady for the idiot Mayor Bill de Blasio, who has been wholly dependent on the shitty J & J vaccine for months and has opened up dozens of vac sites in order to fulfill his “recovery for all of us” mission to bring arts and culture back to NYC and for people to get immune to the contagion in that order, notably one site only dedicated to Broadway and a mobile unit to serve off-Broadway entertainment. Even resorting to malfeasance to make the recovery of reality. Knowing the weakness of the JJ vac, it would have been more apt if the inoculations were given in 99 cent stores or Dollar Trees.

And now we got a national quagmire after these shit vaccines gave 6 women blood clots  and killed one of them. Even though medical experts and elected officials are saying that these are rare symptoms after getting the shots, the CDC has ordered to suspend distribution of the JJ vacs indefinitely, which will no doubt discourage people from getting them in the future if they are revived, no matter they say.

Although the consensus opinion and inevitable rejection about the inferior JJ vaccine should have been set in stone after the warehouse were they were being manufactured botched 15 million doses when another brand vaccine got mixed up in the formulating during production. It also was revealed that factory in Baltimore was not even FDA approved for manufacturing and had multiple violations prior to being awarded the contract from Joe Biden’s DPA order, which confirms his initiative and lofty goals to vaccinate the nation in record time has been a failure too.

If there is any profound lesson or anecdote from about JJ’s shitty vaccine, the most insightful take came from Mike Lupica shooting from his lip in his weekly NY Daily News column:

“I keep hearing about the some of the issues with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and can’t help thinking that Johnson & Johnson run the New York Jets football team…”

That’s right, and the Jets have been one of the worst teams of the past decade too since they took bought it from the Hess oil company. But at least improving a football team with an energetic new coach and high draft pick quarterback doesn’t take much science to do it. But a Big Pharma company like them should have came out with a more efficacious vaccines than the shit one they put out and will now be thrown in the garbage. And with this disaster, the freedom from masks and normalcy’s return will still be out of reach, leaving this nation’s health and future in more doubt as a two year old still continues it’s omniscient dominance over society.

This really should have been expected. But in retrospect, this vaccine should have never been approved at all.

Mayor de Blasio’s Fear And Loathing Of The Public Record

Journalists and citizens, this is what The Blaz thinks about you

Park Row, Downtown, Blue Room, City Hall, New York City, New York

Good day everyone on the call.

Not long ago, the NYC Council cronies ratified a bill into law that revoked the NYPD from issuing press credentials to journalists, a truly historically groundbreaking paradigm shift in city policy of what was a standard procedure for approving access to events, briefings and police crime scenes for decades. This came about after the NYPD basically sabotaged themselves last summer and in the following months when reporters became collateral damage as they got caught up in the throes of the NYPD’s overtly aggressive militaristic tactics battling and kettling protesters during last summer’s George Floyd protests and various BLM demonstrations and rallies that followed that have occurred in later months. Thanks to the menacing optics of a police state in NYC, it actually justified the necessity of this bill.

So now in a year’s time, the issuing of press passes will be approved by the officials inside the Mayor’s Office of Film And Television Movies And Entertainment. While it sounds progressive and better than having a law enforcement agency determining the qualifications of a news source and who they assign, in essence the determination of who is a journalist or not will be  mostly under the purview of the Mayor of New York City.

Why this is being brought up now is to illustrate what an actual danger this will be considering who is mayor as well as who the next mayor will be. And in the last week since this transfer of press duties was ratified, Mayor de Blasio is setting up a very dangerous precedent with his office’s recent actions regarding his daily briefings. Actually it even started days when the press cred bill was being written up.

Back in January, de Blasio put out a 25 minute b-roll video and passed it out as his State of the City address. Entitled “A Recovery For All Of Us”, the overarching theme of the video was about how the city will make a gloriously historic comeback from the pandemic, optically highlighting programs and policies that will be dispensed equitably that will return the city to normalcy (or at least a semblance of it). In the last 3 months since his office produced that feature, The Blaz has with persistent repetition brought up his “recovery for all of us” during his briefings, aligning his brand title with his self-proclaimed gold standard re-opening of schools and revival of city culture with the widening spread of vaccine distribution.

But The Blaz’s recovery, well the “recovery for all of us”, has hit some snags. The vaccine distribution has been not been as equitably distributed, as higher income neighborhoods have received the vaccine than lower income areas and the school re-openings have resembled more of a brown standard than gold according to frustrated parents and students. Then there was the sudden vanishing of the COVID case data map for three days after it revealed about 30 zip codes with over 15% of the population with positive cases, which revealed that even with hundreds of thousands of citizens inoculated, the contagion was still prevalent and persistent.

As for the contagion, COVID-19 as evolved to four different variants, including a New York strain for fuck’s sake. But it’s the UK strain that’s been the most stubborn as cases continue to plateau again in the five boroughs despite the prevalence of vaccines. What’s disturbing about these variants is how they mostly effect younger people.

About those vaccines, there’s been a little hitch there too, especially with Johnson and Johnson brands. If there wasn’t a problem with them being 30% less effective than the Moderna and Pfizer vacs, the Big Pharma corporation recently had to trash 15 million vaccines because they got mixed up with another brand at the warehouse building where both were being manufactured. It should be noted that the warehouse wasn’t even approved by the FDA.

The FUGAZIed vaccines presents a major quagmire for The Blaz, because he has been utterly dependent on these vacs for the recovery for all of us in New York City. And he was surely hedging his bets for them to correlate nicely with his recent decision to bring all his city employees working remotely from of their $2,500 studio apartments and back to the city offices in the merry month of May even though commercial office buildings still have to follow pandemic guidelines and keep staff levels low.

Somehow, having all city employees back in municipal buildings is tied to de Blasio’s recovery, along with his mission to revive NYC culture by having entertainment spring up on the streets and to open up Broadway by prioritizing vaccine access to theater workers and entertainers with mobile sites.

The Blaz has to explain how all this is going to work and because of his notorious proclivity for being secretive and unaccountable when it comes to his policies and decisions. When he does his weekday media availability (even that sounds Orwellian), it airs on the city’s station on Channel 25 and streams live on the Mayor’s Office youtube channel. Then the Mayor’s Office uploads the entire video to their channel not long after it’s done before noon. But on three recent uploads, de Blasio’s and even his crack quack health commission squad of Dr. Chokshi, Dr. Varma and Dr. Katz responses to questions regarding recovery and COVID cases were suddenly memory holed.

Fortunately, the Mayor’s Office website has the entire transcript of his daily briefings, which makes the butchering of these videos a fool’s errand (especially when the one giving the orders is a fool), but not necessarily moot because the video medium is still the one people go to and is easily available, so it makes sense from the standpoint of a scoundrel looking to cover his ass even though it won’t stop anyone from releasing his words in full. Like on this blog here.

All the statements and misinformation that the Blaz found too incriminating, contradictory, and/or stupid will be hyperlinked and written in bold type.

March 23rd

When Andrea Grymes of CBS New York asked him a basic question about his decision to bring his entire administration back to the office, de Blasio’s response was immediately abrupted and then it suddenly went to a zoom vid response from Health and Hospitals commissioner Dr. Mitchell Katz talking about vacs and then Dr. Chokshi telling us to wash our hands and distance for the millionth time.

Mayor: Great. Thank you. Go ahead, Andrea.  

Question: Thank you. And my other question, I know you’ve advocated for a slower reopening in certain sectors in the state, I’m curious why now you feel like it’s good to bring the office workers back, May 3rd, why now?  

Mayor: Different realities that I think need to be handled different. It’s a great question, Andrea. I – look, I believe we have proven, for example, with our schools we have the gold standard of health and safety, and now we have the CDC saying even further we can bring back more kids to our schools. And in fact, what our health care leaders always say, that’s in the interest of health of our children and our families, mental health, physical health, to get them back in school. I think with our public workforce, we need them to come back to their offices. We’ll make more impact that way. We’ll serve more people that way. I think they’ll send a powerful message to the city about our comeback as well, but there are some areas that need to be handled differently. Obviously, our health care team vehemently disagreed with the Governor and the State of New York on reopening fitness classes, which are very different than schools, very different than offices. Why? Because people are in the middle of exertion, physical exertion, they’re expending a lot of a breath. They’re not, in some cases going to be wearing masks, we all know that, or they’re going to have masks that have gotten wet and are not effective. They’re in small, enclosed spaces, that did not make sense, and I hope that we’ll be reconsidered. Equally, I’ve said the other day, we’ve gone far enough on indoor dining. Thank God, you know, one thing I’m very proud of, we have outdoor dining for every restaurant that wants to take advantage of it. We’re – there’s takeout and delivery and restaurants up to 50 percent. That’s enough to keep everyone safe. Again, a setting where people take off their mask because they’re eating and drinking, special limits and carrier needs to be taken there, while we see what happens with the next weeks as we deal with some outstanding questions like the variants. So, it really depends on the specific activity and how you can apply the health and safety measures to it. That’s my quick overview. I just want to see if Dr. Chokshi wants to add anything?  

Commissioner Dave Chokshi, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene: Sir, nothing to add to what you’ve said.   

Mayor: Okay, great. Thank you. Go ahead.  

The only time the Blaz actually answered Ms. Grymes question about lifting restrictions for city office workers during his blathering talking point dominated response was a bunch of distinguished theories about exerted breath emissions in gyms and restaurants which was as ludicrous and dangerous as his imbecilic theory that the virus spreads more in upstate New York than in Manhattan as the pandemic was starting a year ago. Dr. Chokshi, who has been quite a reliable patsy defender for Hizzoner’s pandemic decisions, wisely decided to not to legitimize the Blaz’s epidemiological brain farts. Chokshi will need a new job once the Blaz is gone on Jan. 1.

Not only did de Blasio keep Grymes question off the video record, but his aides also deleted questions from three other reporters and 7 other de Blasio responses, including responses from Dr. Varma and Dr. Chokshi. At least 20 minutes of public information regarding the pandemic and the Mayor’s recovery plan were redacted. Starting with Micheal Gartland, City Hall reporter of the NY Daily News, who inquired about the Mayor’s brand new Racial Justice Commission. It should be pointed out here that the majority of questions here focus on this addition to the already oversaturated bureaucracy that’s in de Blasio’s administration.

Moderator: Next up is Michael from the Daily News.   

Question: Good morning, Mr. Mayor.  

Mayor: Hey Michael, how are you, been?   

Question: I’m good. Thanks for getting me in with the questions this morning. I wanted to ask you a question about the commission, and this is where you and Jennifer Jones Austin. Jennifer talked about the need to dismantle systems that enable racism. So, my question is, you know, in city government, what are the systems that enable racism? What do we need to dismantle here and how do we go doing that?  

Mayor: Well, you’re asking the giant question, Michael, that in fact is the reason we need this commission. I’ll turn to Jennifer for her views, but I’ll just start by saying this is historic work, historic because it’s never been attempted anywhere in the country on this scale before, but historic also because it requires looking at the big picture in a way that we just don’t do in the day-to-day work of government. A piece of this equation you saw recently in the work that Jennifer and her colleagues did working with the NYPD, a very important beginning, and I commend Commissioner Dermot Shea, who, you know, and his speech at the greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce issued a formal apology for the institutional racism that had existed in the NYPD and still needs to be weeded out, and obviously, in the letter that he wrote accompanying the second reform report. This is something that you’ve never seen before from a police commissioner. I think it was a very important contribution that was accompanied by a whole host of tangible reforms to address issues, not just structural racism, but a host of issues. I think that is an indicator of the shape of things to come. The commission’s going to look at everything. So, I said, every city agency, the work of the city, the City Charter itself, but they’re also going to invite in the private sector, cultural sector, the academic sector, that they can participate and step forward with their own acknowledgements and their own action plans and work with the commission on that, which I think is another really exciting part of this work. So, I think, you know, hugely important mission that this commission will now shape together and then bring to the people of this city. Jennifer, you want to add?  

Chair Austin: Yes, I very much appreciate the question and I very much appreciate your response Mayor. You know, we, we don’t yet know all that we need to know, but what we do know is that in this nation, time and time again there have been laws, there have been policies, practices that have been designed and implemented. And while, sometimes at face may not seem to be racist or discriminatory in nature, the impact is all – points to racism at every turn. And so, what we’re going to be doing is looking at our laws, our policies, our practices, the systems that hold these laws, policies, and practices up and trying to really get at what is, you know, is it the design that is problematic? Is it the law in itself? How do we need to message it or do things differently so that the outcomes, the impact that results, is not disparate, is not discriminatory? Much work to be done, but we have enough evidence in places and spaces here in New York City and around the nation that tells us this is the work we need to do.  

Mayor: Thank you. Go ahead, Michael.  

Question: That, and I have a question on the May 3rd reopening. You know, I understand that the commission is tasked with kind of identifying these things, but you know, these systems, I mean, it seems like you do have some sense of what they are, and I’m wondering if, you know, is there a reluctance to kind of talk about them on the front end to get more information or can you just kind of share some sense of where you think you’ll be focused on, you know, their particular laws or policies in general you know, that you’re looking at kind of taking on, and then I have another. 

Mayor: Yeah, no, Michael, this, respectfully, is your second question, so, let’s stay there, and we can, you know, the team will follow up with you on other matters. The – look, here’s what I’d say, if you look across city agencies, you will see issues have been raised by leaders, by community members for a long time. We all know a lot of work went into changing the composition of the Fire Department. That work needs to deepen. We all know there’ve been real issues with the Department of Education, ensuring diversity at all ranks of the department, looking at the curriculum. Even something you might not think about at first blush, but it’s been in the news a lot lately. How we go about preserving the city’s history, the work of our Landmarks Preservation Commission, but ensuring it is focused on everyone’s history, you know, the folks who built this city, the communities of color that often were left out of previous official histories. It really is across all areas. So, there’s not, again, there’s not a litmus test. There’s not a preexisting mandate to act on this specific issue. This commission has got a lot to do, but its job is to look across the whole city government to look at the very foundational document of the city, which is our charter. But again, also to invite in non-city actors to join in this effort and to work on their own issues with us as well, and I think a lot of people are going to want to be a part of this, Michael, I think this is historic. It’s the right moment in history where people need to come to grips with this, and this is going to be the vehicle to do it. Jennifer, would you like to add? 

Chair Austin: I will simply add that we’re moving into this and we’re doing this work because we know as you just pointed to that, there are examples that can be done here and there that have devastated communities, individuals, families, and so we have enough of what we’ve experienced to help us appreciate the importance of leaning in, but there is no, there’s no report that’s yet been written that is not yet being surfaced. That’s not what we’re doing here, and we are going to remain as open as we possibly can so that we don’t miss critical issues.  

Apparently, going by these opaque responses, this racial justice commission has no plan and no indications of how to determine what’s can be construed as racist. But plenty of answers on how the implementation of this plan is so historic.

If there is an indication of why the Blaz and Ms. Austin thinks the city needs this commission now and will be able to crack down on internecine racism in civic and government services, it’s obviously tied to the Blaz’s order to lift COVID restrictions and fill up municipal office space again, as if this racial justice commission can’t stop racism on zoom for a few more months.

Now back into the memory hole as he fields then will later vanish questions from Steve Burns from WCBS880 who brings up the Blaz’s contradictory and health risky May reopening and the extremely belated arrival of the racial justice commission.

Mayor: Go ahead.  

Moderator: We have time for two more. First, we’ll go to Steve from WCBS Radio. 

Question: Hey, good morning, Mr. Mayor, how are you?  

Mayor: Good, Steve, how you been?  

Question: I’m alright. First on the return to work here. I take it, there’s some amount of signaling and messaging here as well to New York’s larger business community that it would be okay to bring their workers back as well, that the city is doing it. How amenable or flexible do you think they’ll be, given we just saw the Partnership for New York City survey saying half of workers still won’t be back by September, still going to be a lot of hybrid working, if you will, going forward. How flexible do you think, and do you hope, New York’s broader workforce will be based on what the city is doing here?  

Mayor: It’s a great question, Steve, first of all, I mean, we saw in the news earlier today about Morgan Stanley bringing back a lot of its workforce. You’re seeing more and more of these announcements. I think we should separate the question of, you know, blending and hybrid of in-office and remote work. I think you are going to see every company approach that differently, how much they need their folks full-time in the office, part-time in the office, some days, other days, you know, that every different company is going to work out. Let’s put that question aside. I think the question I would focus on that you raise is, are folks ready to start bringing back the workforce in whatever way makes sense, as quickly as possible? I certainly want to encourage that. We’re going to have five million people vaccinated by June. I think for a lot of companies they’ll make that decision to act in the next few months. I think a lot of other companies are going to wait until September as the natural inflection point with schools coming back fully, et cetera. But what we do see is this issue is now on the front burner, Steve. Companies are now seeing it’s time to come back. It’s time to recognize that there’s progress happening, and it’s going to help companies to do their work, and it’s going to help surrounding communities to have those workers back and it’s going to help small businesses. So, I think you’re going to see a lot more of that in the coming next few months. Go ahead, Steve. 

Question: Thanks for that. On the Racial Justice Commission here. This is a concept that I remember you raised almost a year ago now during the protests, and now that it’s coming to fruition here, you know, nine months later. So, the process means it’ll fall to the next mayor to implement this and inherit this. Is there a reason why there was such a delay here to make this so that it falls to the next mayor to really see the results here? 

Mayor: I don’t – I appreciate the question, but I wouldn’t agree with the way of framing it. So, this Commission, we’re going to set it up, that they can continue their work through this year and if they choose to into next year, and I think whoever the next mayor is, is going to value this work, and certainly look at these extraordinary leaders who are part of this Commission. But the Commission plans on by the end of the year, doing a report, and at that point, determining what steps they’re recommending initially. They, again, can easily continue that work. There’s a lot to do here that could play out over multiple years, but they will have a body of work this year and the ability to send items to the ballot. So, I have no question in my mind, you’re going to see a lot of high-impact work, and then I would advise in advance, since we don’t know who the next mayor is going to be, I would advise them to take this model and keep running with it because this is work that we need to do until the mission is done, and I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s worth putting several years of effort in to. 

It has been suspected for quite some time that Mayor Big Slow is just biding his time until his term is up and also that his programs were designed for the next mayor to take over (like his affordable housing ruse program) and it’s clear that this was the plan for this commission too, which seems like another ruse and an excuse for de Blasio to have allies in house when the new mayor is elected. (Unless that mayor is a Republican).

The whole thing, for lack of a better term, looks like a shit sandwich and smells like it. And it sure sounds like Henry Goldman of Bloomberg News caught a whiff of the stench too in his last questions that were annihilated from the public record

Moderator: Last, we’ll go to Henry from Bloomberg.  

Question: Mr. Mayor, how are you doing today?  

Mayor: Hey, Henry, how you been?  

Question: I’m good. I guess my question is very similar to the last question. But I would also frame it differently than either one of you, which is –  

Mayor: Yeah, Henry, that is you being yourself right there. (Such a snotty, classless dig)

Question: I guess so. In 2013, you ran this campaign that was on this whole insight that economic inequality is one of the central issues with not the issue of our time, and now it’s 2021, and we’re getting a commission to identify the areas in which economic and racial inequality has kept society’s foot on the neck of people of races other than white races. So, I’m just wondering, given the fact that this was central to your reason for running for office, why are we getting this commission at this late date? 

Mayor: Henry, you know, we, here’s, here’s the summation of how I’ve followed through on the vision of attacking the tale of two cities. We have redistributed now tens of billions of dollars to working people and communities of color. We fundamentally changed education with Pre-K for all, and now 3-K. Fundamentally changed the approach to affordable housing. You go down the list of things, obviously the police reforms, you know, that work followed through on the initial vision that I brought to office, but what has happened in the meantime is a deeper understanding of the fact that institutional and structural racism require not just a set of policy changes or not even individual and profound acts of redistribution, but the entire structure now has to be questioned, and as I said, right down to each agency in the city government, each major institution of our society, and the city charter and the city’s laws itself – this is a deepening of the original mission, and as we’ve done this work, I think I’ve certainly been satisfied, the impact of each major policy change that really is reaching, you know, hundreds of thousands or millions of people. But I also become more and more convinced that we have to look at the entire structure and identify even more profound changes. So, I think this commission will do it. It’s obviously the first in the nation. I think it will be a model for other places in the country, and I also think it’ll be really tough work because it’s never been done before, but I have faith that this group of people will find a way forward for us. Go ahead, Henry. 

Chair Austin: May I just add one thing to that. 

Mayor: No, please. I’m sorry, Jennifer. My apologies. 

Chair Austin: I just want to add that, I mean, we all know, we all are appreciating more and more that structural and institutional racism in this country has been in, has been in place and has been built upon now for better than 400 years. To even begin to suggest that in seven years we would dismantle it in its entirety – you know, we can’t get into that. We can’t get into that. We need to center on what needs to be done in this moment to deepen our work, to look at these structural barriers, that even when we put new policies and initiatives in place will not get us where we ultimately need to be, and so this needs to be a time where we are building on the significant work that has been done and not getting too much into well did we not do enough, or did we not do the right thing? 

This Miss Austin is quite a character. She’s seems more adept at running protection for the mayor, herself and this commission they concocted at the last minute than solving racial justice. But what’s interesting is how she weasels an excuse about how you can’t solve 400 years of racism in 7 years, but apparently it’s possible in 7 months and change. And in the hopes of another 4 years if the mayor they want to win emerges victorious.

Mayor: Thank you. Go ahead, Henry. 

Question: Okay, I mean, I don’t want it to really be literate, but a few years ago I was, you know, in front of the Justice Department and the demonstration, and 98 percent of the people who surrounded me weren’t aware that it was structural racism that was causing a lot of this country’s problems and inability to confront things. Maybe it was 97 percent, I don’t know.  (Shaaaaade)

But here here’s my second question. It has to do with the stubbornness again of these positivity rates and infection rates, and it seems out of whack with this sense of optimism and reopening. We had Scott Gottlieb pointing out that there are all these ZIP codes with over 15 percent positivity in New York City. I counted 30 with 10 percent or more or rounding off 10 percent or more. So, given this state of affairs and the fact that the data is still coming in slow, we’re three days behind instead of two, why isn’t there a greater sense of concern and worry that the infection rates are not coming down as sharply as you would think they should be? 

Mayor: It’s a – I know your questions with a full heart Henry, but I do think there’s an editorial component. There’s plenty of concern, plenty of vigilance, and I don’t know anyone who worries more all day long than our health care team. I’m going to turn to them, I’ll turn to in order and in just a second, Dr. Varma, Dr. Katz, Dr. Chokshi, but I want you to hear from them the way they’re seeing the current situation. We are watching all that data all the time, and we’re listening to different voices. Although, as you know, Henry, there’s different voices in the medical field and in academia that have different views and you take each one in, but you can’t treat anyone as gospel. I think that the three health care leaders that you hear every day from this gathering have led us through this war with extreme ability, and I really appreciate all their efforts and I would summarize it this way: everyone’s watching the data constantly. There’s a strong sense of vigilance. There’s real concern about the variants, but we do see progress unquestionably, and we also are watching the steady pace of vaccination. We know it’s about to uptick intensely and we believe that’s the most critical factor. So, we’re making decisions about what can be moved with all that in mind, but we’re also saying some areas where we don’t think there should be changes or needs to be a different approach. So, it’s really, I think pretty fine-tuned, but let me do in order. Dr. Varma, then Dr. Katz, then Dr. Chokshi on each have their own view of the state of play. Go ahead, Dr. Varma.  

Senior Advisor Dr. Jay Varma: Yeah, thank you very much for the question Henry and I think I would just really try to emphasize, I mean, we speak on these press conferences every day, and if there is a one thing that we are absolutely consistent in, is that we are deeply concerned about the fact that the rates of infection have not declined as dramatically as they should be. It’s the reason we raise caution about people participating in indoor activities, it’s the reason we released, you know, a very extensive guidance on how to die in safely for people that choose indoor dining, and the reason we keep emphasizing how important it is for people to be observing the importance of masks, distancing, hand-washing and frequent testing, and then of course, getting vaccinated as soon as possible.  

Now, that is absolutely what we’re concerned about right now, and we think that there’s a real critical importance for people to maintain that vigilance over the next several weeks and possibly a bit longer. At the same time, we also know the effectiveness of these vaccines. We know the effectiveness from clinical trials. We know the effective this from real world lived experience looking at the UK, looking at Israel, looking at other selected datasets where individual populations have been vaccinated. So, we also know that even though we need to be incredibly persistent right now, there is promise on the horizon, and so it certainly does make sense to plan for a future that will be better while at the same time also recognizing that you need a plan B – if things don’t go the way you want, you need to redirect, and so that’s the way we’re looking at it right now, and I just really do want to emphasize that we want people to get the message that now is not the time to let up. But there will be a time, some point in the future and we have a pathway to get there. 

Mayor: Thank you, go ahead, Dr. Katz.  

President and CEO Mitchell Katz, NYC Health + Hospitals: Yeah. Dr. Varma has done such a great job. I don’t have a lot to add other than to say that there’s been unanimity among your health experts. We talk to each other every day, we support each other. We believe in the work we’re doing together. I’m very pleased to see decreases in the number of deaths and decreases in the number of patients who are seriously ill and require ventilation, and I believe that is because of the success of the vaccines. I believe that once we’re able to vaccinate the entire population you’ll see that the cases themselves begin to decrease more dramatically, but as a physician, of course, the thing I’m most worried about is losing life or people having prolonged hospitalization, and I’m glad that the vaccines are so effective at preventing that, even when there are variants the vaccines still are effective at decreasing the severity of this disease. Thank you, Mr. Mayor.  

Mayor: Thank you, and now, Dr. Chokshi.  

Commissioner Chokshi: Yes, thank you, and thanks for the question Henry which I appreciate you know, what I would just add is that this is not something inexorable that is happening to us. This is something that we as New York City have a lot of agency with respect to how we can continue the fight against COVID-19. All of the things that you’ve heard us say that we know works with respect to beating back the virus masking distancing, handwashing, getting tested, getting vaccinated when it’s your turn. Those are the things that will help us in what is ultimately, you know, a tug of war between nature and New Yorkers, and in that match, I’m going to bet on New Yorkers because we’ve shown that we can do the things that do work with respect to curbing the spread of COVID-19. Now is the time for us to recommit to do that, to hold on so that we can make that the homestretch of what has been a marathon for the city. 

Mayor: The very quotable Dr. Dave Chokshi – tug of war between nature and New Yorkers, we’re betting on New Yorkers. Thank you, I agree, Dr. Chokshi, and look, as we conclude today, everyone – I’m betting on New Yorkers too. I’m betting on New Yorkers all the time, and that is a bet that we win regularly

Evidently, the Blaz and his media minions in the Mayor’s Office didn’t find Dr. Varma’s and half of Dr. Katz’s responses about the rise in variants and hospitalizations worth quoting for video viewing. Nor Hizzoner’s talking point gaslighting in this clip. Dr. Varma clearly points out the still prevalent risks of having normal capacity in the workplace and other indoor venues and clustering with the pandemic’s resurgence which de Blasio’s May order for his administration coming back to offices clearly, irresponsibly and hazardously conflicts with. The fact that de Blasio is willing to undermine his own doctors advice by cutting them out of the conversation on the city’s youtube channel is about as dangerous as Trump telling people to stick a syringe of bleach into your lungs.

And just like how a serial killer can’t stop after he/she kills one person, de Blasio and his minions continued to strike reporters questions and the mayor’s incriminating moron responses and gaslighting about the pandemic off the video record.  And the Blaz does it again to Henry Goldman question about the city’s case data and to Dr. Varma, his senior health advisor of the COVID response and recovery and as well as to the other poor saps of his health commission, striking their responses from the public record with bolts of narrative control lightning.

March 30

Moderator: Next is Henry from Bloomberg. 

Question: Hello, Mr. Mayor, how are you doing today? 

Mayor: I am doing well, Henry. How’ve you been? 

Question: I am good. Baseball season is just days away. 

Mayor: Days away. It’s palpable. It’s in the air, Henry. 

Question: The Red Sox first loss of the season just days away. (Lolz)

Mayor: Ouch, Henry. That’s awfully personal, Henry. Let’s just be a – what’s the word I’m looking for – a good loser, a good winner, not a sore winner, whatever it is. 

Question: All right. Well, my first question is really, you know, these numbers are very stubborn on infection rates, positivity. I’ve asked this question a million times and others have too, but has the City’s priorities shifted toward really caring about hospitalization and death rather than looking at the numbers of cases and the positivity rate? Are those indicators really kind of falling by the wayside, as vaccinations increase? What is the reality here? 

Mayor: It’s a great question. You know, you have raised it and I think I felt like we spoke to this over time, but it’s good to come back to it. I think there was a, and I’ll turn to Dr. Varma and Dr. Chokshi, and I also will get Dr. Long in this because of the experience that we’re seeing in Health + Hospitals, which is really, really important to your question.  

Henry, simply put, job one has been to save lives, from the very beginning. We knew in the beginning what we didn’t know, right? COVID was so new, the approaches in the hospitals just weren’t ready and the immense stress on the hospital system, and, and we were trying with everything we could to just keep the hospital system able to tend to people and save lives. But when we got a year later to the point where the hospitals, the medical world had really learned a lot more about how to address COVID, we saw a very different reality. We saw people go into the hospital and come out alive much more often, thank God, and we did see the number of deaths go down and we saw very, very different reality, and that’s the most important thing, is saving lives. We take seriously the case numbers, for sure. We want to drive them down, and the best tool to drive him down is vaccination, and then the next best thing is all the following all the guidance that that health team has given. That still is overwhelmingly what New Yorkers are doing. So, I think we take both seriously, but undoubtedly, we start with, you know, saving lives and avoiding the kinds of hospitalizations that mean someone’s going through a really, really tough time. So, Dr. Varma, Dr. Chokshi, Dr. Long, just let’s do lightning round, but give your quick responses. 

Senior Advisor Varma: Yeah, I mean, this is obviously – it’s a very hard and difficult topic to discuss, but let me just say a few really quick points. One is, you know, Henry, as you know, none of these indicators is absolutely perfect and that’s why we have always emphasized the importance of looking at all of them together, and as you note, this is –we are at a very high plateau that we want to get down from, and there are ways to get down from that, (ZAP!!!) and one is to make sure that people continue to do all of those personal measures that are important. Number two, they get vaccinated when it’s their turn, and number three, they continue to get tested and to observe you know, the precautions, if they do take risks or, you know, enter into the situation where they’re traveling or something to continue to emphasize those precautions, particularly in those higher risk scenarios.  

I think the second point is that, you know, one of the most effective ways that we can prevent death is through vaccination. I think what has really been consistent throughout all of the different vaccines has been the remarkable impact that they have on hospitalizations and deaths. So, we absolutely to continue to prevent infection through all the methods that we know, but we also know that the vaccines are going to be very effective at that more severe outcome. 

Mayor: Thank you. Dr. Chokshi. 

Commissioner Chokshi: Thank you, Mr. Mayor. I’ll just add briefly you know, as the Mayor said, our job at the end of the day is to save lives and prevent suffering, and that’s why we do look at hospitalizations and deaths so closely and carefully and deploy all of the strategies that Dr. Varma mentioned to try to prevent those numbers from rising, and you know, we see the numbers every morning. We think about them not just as epidemiologists or, you know, from the mathematical perspective, but the very human suffering that is behind each of the 2,600 people who are hospitalized across New York City as of today. But that leads to the other part of your question, which is we do look at cases and test positivity because those are also related to avoidable suffering that we are trying to prevent. Cases and test positivity in particular, are often the leading indicator, meaning we have a beat on what’s happening sooner when we see the trajectory of those numbers. So, we look at all of them together but they inform, at the end of the day, the strategy that we have to try to avoid those outcomes that we take so seriously. 

Mayor: Thank you, and Dr. Long, you can speak for what’s happening in the hospitals directly. 

Executive Director Ted Long, NYC Test & Trace Corps: Yeah, thank you, sir. So, Henry going back to the last March and April, I was on the front lines of our hospitals where we quadrupled the size of our ICU’s. We cannot go back to that. So, what we’ve done here, with respect to the second wave in the city, is we’ve sought to delay and diminish the number of cases that we’re seeing here in the second wave, if you will, and that’s resulted in us being able to save lives, but also importantly, to Dr. Chokshi’s point, keeping our hospitals going so they can continue to provide the excellent care that we know that they can. Through our second wave, we actually have had in New York City, one third fewer per capita that’s of New Yorkers think compared to the rest of the country, and that’s because again, New Yorkers came together, wore their masks. 96 percent of the time we’re reaching every single new case from a contact-tracing perspective. 
Now we’re doing more testing than almost any other country in the world. Those things came together to delay the onset of our second wave, diminish its peak, and that resulted in saving lives, and in particular, by keeping our hospitals going. You walk into the door of any of our hospitals now at Health + Hospitals, it looks different than it did last March and April. And it will continue to look different because of what New Yorkers do and are willing to sacrifice every day. Now, on a note of cases, I just want to make the point that it’s not an issue of whether cases are more important than hospitalizations and deaths, but rather it’s Dr. Chokshi’s point, they serve a different purpose. Where we see cases going up, that enables us to strategically deploy our resources. We see cases going up, testing going down in the community. I, and Test and Trace, have 40 mobile units, all of which have rapid testing capabilities. 20, soon to be 40 mobile units, with vaccines. We can deploy our resources where we need to, and that also helps us to break chains of transmission and save lives. Thank you.  

Mayor: Thank you, Ted. Go ahead, Henry. 

Question: Okay, thanks. Here’s a question that is kind of weird. It’s – Mr. Yang took a shot at you yesterday, not a vaccine shot, but kind of, he threw some shade on your administration. And in the course of enunciating one of a bunch of policies in which he seems to be sort of either uninformed or off, just not factually correct. For example, he wants you to declare a subway fare holiday which would mean taking money out of the City treasury to pay people, literally, to take the subway, which as we all know, is a State-run facility. He’s also asked you, or demanded really, that you not spend all of the federal relief money in one year when we know that it’s going to be dispersed at least over two years. He’s also called the City’s reserves, a rainy day fund [inaudible] that the State law prohibits the City from establishing a rainy day fund, and he’s called on you to tax Columbia and NYU, they can pay property taxes, and we know that that would require a State action to do that. And so, my question to you is, you know, obviously, you know, the whole history of the City is that incumbent mayors don’t get involved in the politicking for the person who’s going to succeed him or her. But he also has called for spending a billion dollars out of the City treasury on 500,000 people who would receive basically $167 a month. So, in giving all of these policies that really either run a [inaudible] of what you’ve done or are really impossible under State law, do you feel an obligation as the incumbent, as the mayor, as somebody who has spent the last seven plus years dealing with these issues to somehow set the record straight and inform the front runner, or at least the population of New York City, that these ideas would take a heck of a lot of work to implement if not being impossible? 

Mayor: I appreciate the question. I certainly would just say to everyone, we for years worked very hard to shed light on the fact that the State runs the MTA. I just want to pull out that one piece. I think it’s really important. Early on in my administration, I would go to town hall meetings and there was obviously – people would raise concerns about the subway, and I would ask them, you know, who runs the subways and there’ll be a lot of confusion. You know, Henry, the MTA was set up purposefully decades ago in part to create that confusion purposefully, to keep accountability from residing in any elected official. Well, obviously over the years, the State became the one place where decisions were made about the MTA controlling the leadership, controlling the budget. And I think we did a good thing in these last years by clarifying that, really creating accountability. 

Typical of the disingenuous Mayor to call for lightning round answers from three doctors responsible for the health and safety for all citizens regarding the steady rise in COVID cases and then strike them down with narrative control bolts like Zeus with a thin skin. Funny thing, is that they didn’t answer Mr. Goldman’s question either and responded with a bunch of obvious takes not much different than de Blasio’s.

Also notable and truly sad is how the Blaz’s media minions wiped out Henry’s question and de Blasio’s wishy washy answer about Andrew Yang’s platform proposals in an attempt to make the dilettante neoliberal candidate and his ideas not only irrelevant but non-existent.

Now here’s where de Blasio’s video redactions start to resemble a serial killer’s pattern, as another media availability upload a week later had minutes erased. And whether it’s coincidental or even personal considering the dig against the Red Sox, the mark getting suppressed again is Henry Goldberg.

April 6

Question: Thank you. Another question, Mr. Mayor, was about the Cleaning Corps. you just announced. I’m wondering, does this differ at all from what the city does, for example, during snow days and hiring workers? is this like a temporary sort of job? I’ve heard some concerns expressed about hiring during the pandemic and whether that is the best use of the stimulus money. So, are these going to be long-term hires or are they temporary hires? Could you give a little more details about the status of these folks –  

Mayor: Yeah, Jeff, these – it’s different than what we do on, you know, that very, very temporary basis. This is for the remainder of the year and we’ll assess obviously toward the end of the year, but the goal is for the year 2021 to maximize the cleanup really, you know, roll out the red carpet all over this city that the city’s coming back. We definitely saw more littering on sidewalks, you know, during the pandemic, we got to clean that up. We saw some more graffiti, we got to clean that up. We got to get to where we were before the pandemic and even better to really foster a recovery for all of us. So, the goal here is hire as many people as possible, as quickly as possible for employment in 2021 and only 2021, and then as we get to later in the year, we’ll assess what makes sense to do going forward.  

Moderator: The next is Henry from Bloomberg.   

Question: Hello, Mr. Mayor, how are you doing?   

Mayor: I’m good, Henry, how you been?   

Question: I’m good. Very good. Thank you. I wanted to ask you about the State Budget. It appears that the Governor has gotten his way, and there’s a $1.3 billion item in there to support this expansion of Penn Station which will involve using eminent domain, there’s a lot of local opposition to it. The local Council people are opposed to it, and it appears that the State can overrule any local land use oversight on this. What’s your feeling about this?  

Mayor: Henry, I want to check the latest because that’s not what my understanding was as of late yesterday. What the Governor proposed is a mistake. It’s not that Penn Station isn’t an important area for the city, it is, and I certainly believe we need more development as part of how we come out of this pandemic, but it has to be the right kind of development. It has to be with communities, not against communities. It has to include the voices of communities. It has to respect what people need in a community and achieve something for that community and not just be a giveaway to big developers. So, the Governor’s plan was very developer friendly, not community friendly. Last I heard the legislature was taking measures and steps to create balance, and I want to get the latest on that. We absolutely need that kind of balance when it comes to Penn Station. Go ahead, Henry.  

Question: Okay. Well, I’m probably going to want to hear from your staff your reaction when you find out the latest on this. My second question, I guess, has to do with the unions concern about schools that a lot of the new infections are occurring in young people, they’re occurring in school age people, partly probably because they’re not vaccinated, but for the teacher’s union and other people who are in the schools, they think this raises the risk that the schools could still be a vector for infection despite how well the schools have been able to prevent that from happening. What is your view on that?  

Mayor: Well, I’ll turn to Dr. Varma and Dr. Chokshi, but I would say this just to put in perspective. I’m really struck by what Dr. Chokshi said yesterday, after 700,000 tests in our public schools. I think the composite figure was 0.57 percent positivity. That’s just night and day compared to, you know, everything else happening in New York City. I mean, they have been the safest places in the city, continually, well before people were vaccinated. Further, we now know that over 65,000 school employees have been vaccinated, and more getting vaccinated every day. So, even with the challenge of the variants, I think we are clearly doing very well in the schools, and in fact, our position gets stronger all the time as more and more people get vaccinated. So, I would say, I think regardless of some recent developments, that fundamental formula still holds very, very true, but first Dr. Varma then Dr. Chokshi.  

Senior Advisor Jay Varma: Great. Thank you very much. I would echo really the points that the Mayor has made. So, first of all we went through a difficult second wave in January where we peaked at over 6,000 cases a day, and during that time, we were able to demonstrate that all of the measures that we use to protect adults and children in schools continued to be effective. So, we know that our defensive measures, our methods to prevent infections, can work even when there’s high levels of community transmission. The second is, as the Mayor has rightly pointed out, we have now added the single most powerful layer of defense, and I would strongly encourage any adult – or really anybody now, 16 and older, that participates in in-person learning in some way, to get vaccinated. That is the single most powerful layer of defense that we could have to help protect against you know, people getting severely ill. And I think a related point to that is from our detailed analysis of cases from October through December, over 80 percent – or I’m sorry, approximately 80 percent of the incidents that involve transmission occurring in the school setting involved an adult being the index case. So, yet another way to prevent and make our schools safer is to protect adults from infection through vaccination, and we know vaccine isn’t a 100 percent effective at protecting adults from being infected, but it is tremendously effective. So again, I would really lean into the importance of one, our defensive protective measures have worked, and second of all, we now have this additional layer of vaccination.   

Mayor: Thank you. Dr. Chokshi?  

Commissioner Dave Chokshi, Department of Health and Mental Hygiene: Mr. Mayor, I’ll just add that we are following the numbers very closely, not just that 0.57 percent test positivity rate that you mentioned, but also looking at cases and test positivity among children across New York City as a whole. When we look at those case rates and that test positivity, even as we do see the variants increase in the city, those have held stable. We are not seeing increases in the burden of cases or the positivity rate among people age zero to 17. So that’s something that we will continue to follow closely, but Dr. Varma made the most important point, which is that we do know that vaccination of school staff will help because the cases that we do see within the school setting are predominantly brought in by adults. So, this gives us a very important layer of protection that we think can make our schools even safer for in-person learning.  

Mayor: Thank you. Go ahead.   

Mr. Goldberg clearly got cut down because he dared acknowledged teacher’s concerns that the Mayor’s brown standard of school re-openings will lead to another rise of infections and not because he’s still getting back at him for dissing his beloved Bosox.

What de Blasio has been doing here with these videos shouldn’t be undermined and ignored, even if the transcripts are easily available (and the transcripts are still insufficiently informative, because they don’t write down the full names of the journalists). What these selective edits show is a Mayor obsessed not with making the city safe from preventing another outbreak but more with this “recovery for all of us” reality he’s relentlessly pushing by trying to control the primal forces of science and nature while COVID continues to spread through proxy strains. Which has led other nations to reinforce lockdowns again and again and to a stunning rise of cases again in New York City,making us currently number one in the nation in new infections.

This is only going to exacerbate because of the Blaz’s reliance on the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, which has seen some very unfortunate events in only a week. Turns out NYC will not be seeing another influx of J & J vacs for quite a while after a plant in Baltimore that wasn’t FDA approved screwed up the manufacturing of 15 million vaccines that had to be thrown in the garbage. These vacs also have resulted in harmful side effects after inoculations that a site in Georgia had to suspend service for the day. To make things even more worse for the recovery for all of us, a 30-year-old upper class  White woman from Williamsburg got the Rona again after getting the J&J shot early in March. Which discredits the city’s health departments constant advisory refrain that the next available vaccine is the best one. Surely this probably will have the Blaz shitting in his britches since she is part of the Blaz’s demo to make the city’s recovery a reality. Which is bad timing since he recently debuted the city’s mobile vaccine only a few days ago, after he debuted a vaccine mobile unit for Broadway a week earlier.

So it makes sense that the mayor would prioritize entertainment over his constituents for the city to come back to normalcy, because he’s been acting more like an executive producer than a mayor or even a leader. Which is why he’s been coming up with shit like the Open Culture NYC and emceeing reopenings at entertainment venues at BAM and Lincoln Center and announcing the scheduled reopening of beaches with Spring only 2 weeks old.

But as these videos illustrate, The Blaz is trying to produce an optical illusion of a city overcoming a pandemic and is deliberately and quite nefariously trying to hide any evidence that will counter his Recovery and is willing to undermine his health commissioner and advisers to do it. This is no different than what China did when COVID-19 spread like wildfire in the Wuhan Province and no different when ex-President Trump played down the virus despite initially believing the severity of it.

But most alarmingly, what the Blaz is doing by erasing his bonehead replies regarding cases and spread and the analysis of his health team regarding infection data and medical advice is not much different than Cuomo’s and his toady staffers manipulating the data to edit his best-selling American Crisis novel. In fact, it’s probably more sinister because it’s happening currently and unlike Cuomo, de Blasio still possesses his emergency powers. And the Blaz is able to still get away with this by continuing to keep the press out of City Hall’s blue room by exploiting the pandemic protocols. Which should a beg a question from journalists on how de Blasio can lift restrictions for municipal office work and can still be allowed to continue keeping them from questioning the mayor in person.

And as Mario’s Son has already shown, with those powers brings great micro-mismanagement, it’s not hard to see in these briefings de Blasio’s influence on his doctor’s responses too even in their responses that got butchered from the uploaded videos. Most glaring is city’s doctor and health commissioner Chokshi, who’s more comfortable giving his professional advice and essential accurate information about the variants to a corporate news host than his patsy refrains of wearing masks and washing hands when he’s zooming in the blue room.

Which is why where we are still in the throes of a pandemic and why bringing up the press credential issue matters and it’s not just these videos either, his government city recidivism from covering up data of the racial makeup of those winning the affordable housing lotteries to the his most recent fucking with the public record with his inherently corrupt blackening of a FOIA of the city’s plan to bulldoze a mile of public park space by the East River and place a platform on top of it for some reason, only a few years after it was partially renovated. And after the city claimed that there was no resiliency study made for it.

Because de Blasio is fucking with the press  and his constituents by pushing his narrative for his trademarked “recovery for all of us” by redacting footage from these videos and the public record. And after his most recent press briefings, de Blasio must have just realized that even his gaslighting is not going to be enough anymore in order to get this recovery he desperately is pining for, now that he has fiendishly resorted to manufacturing consent to push his comeback narrative across and doing a horrendously sloppy job at it.

Because this narrative de Blasio is desperately trying to control is obviously already having an deleterious effect with the return of people mingling and clustering in public parks again and tourists coming back to the city, it’s easy to see why the Blaz doesn’t want anyone to know if any of these current COVID cases are from re-infections and the efficacy of vaccines, particularly the weaker J & J. But another reason de Blasio is cutting up these uploaded videos is because he’s the face of the pandemic in NYC now that Cuomo has been sidelined by his scandals and has been evading journalists for months and will continue to. Especially now that the Blaz is fancying designs for running for governor.

These corrupted redactions of the public record are the culmination of The Blaz’s 7.4 years of recidivist unaccountability. Because the recovery is not really for all of us, but rather a self-serving recovery for de Blasio’s abominable political career. And the health of his constituents, his staffers and even the tourists be damned.

We seen this dystopian movie before. It’s de Blasio Vu all over again.

Queens

destini-smothers-1Body found in trunk of car in Queens

In South Ozone Park, a woman was found dead inside the trunk of an abandoned car parked on Lefferts boulevard as it was about to be towed away by the sanitation department after 311 calls by residents about it’s elongated presence. The woman was reported as a missing person for 4 months after disappearing following an argument with her boyfriend in his car after they attended a birthday party at a bowling alley in Woodside back in November. Her killer, who is also the father of her two children, is still on the loose. The autopsy found that she was murdered from a single strike to her head from a weaponized blunt instrument.

In Woodside, a woman walking home from the supermarket to her apartment at the Woodside Houses got killed by a stray bullet from a shootout between two gangbangers while they were running on the street. A tenant blamed the failed bail reform policy enacted last year for the rise in gang violence in the building. A 19-year-old man got charged for the senseless killing.

Woodside rallies against shootings 1

Also in Woodside, a man got shot to death in front of the Woodside Houses in another gang related incident.

Two days later at the Woodside Houses, a man bringing home bread and milk to his grandmother who lives in an apartment there got followed by a man who stuck him up at gunpoint in front of the building and shot him when he refused to give him what he bought. While bleeding on the ground, the victim gave his assailant 7 bucks and his cellphone, which his grandmother mused was the reason for a lot of muggings in recent days.

Again in Woodside, a man jumped another man on the sidewalk and stabbed him in the chest and slashed his hand.

Again in Woodside, a man jumped a woman as she walking on the sidewalk, held her at gunpoint and forced her to walk a couple blocks to house and then into a backyard where he sexually assaulted and robbed $60 off her.

In Ridgewood, a speakeasy rager being held at an abandoned warehouse and federal Superfund site got raided by NYC Sheriffs, leading to the evacuation of over 140 people and the promoters and DJ getting arrested.

Also in Ridgewood, a man flipped his lid while waiting behind a standing vehicle on the street and stepped out of his car with a tire iron and whacked the rear wheel then he smacked the man on his arm when he came out of his car.

In Jamaica at the 179th St. Station, a homeless woman sleeping on the F train went bonkers when the conductor and other transit workers woke her up.The derelict spit and threw cleaning products at them as they tried to get her off the train and then she threw a broom at a transit worker that almost caused her to fall against an arriving train while ducking the object.

Also in Jamaica, a man beat a 71-year-old man to death with a piece of rebar in inside of the victim’s apartment after he argued with him about making too much noise.

Again in Jamaica, a postal worker robbed a credit card from an envelope during her route and used it to get her breasts lifted in a Long Island plastic surgery clinic.

And again in Jamaica, two men got busted with 50 kilos of yayo named after a pro soccer player in their apartment.

And again in Jamaica, de Blasio’s NYPD deployed militarized cops to break into a house suspected of drug dealing based on a bad tip on a no-knock warrant at 6 in the morning. The cops tore up the woman’s nephew’s bedroom wall and  found was about a few grams of weed. This means the NYPD are still using the same policing method that killed Breonna Taylor a year ago and did this right when Albany was in the well-publicized process of legalizing pot.

In South Jamaica, two homeless men living in a hotel homeless shelter got into a brawl at a park across the street, leading to one of them getting stabbed to death and also a security guard from the hotel getting stabbed twice when he tried to stop the fight.

In Pomonok, an argument between two men over an available apartment held at an open house sale escalated when one of them took out a gun and shot the other in the ass. Wonder if the apartment was one of those “affordable” ones.

On Rikers Island, a convict who previously served time for killing two men and was awaiting trial for a  shooting murder a few months earlier was set free from a clerical error following a court hearing where he cursed out a judge and he was released after the time on the contempt charge got served. The fugitive did not have bail set for him because of the severity of his crime. Corrections sat on this horrifying information for 12 hours before they notified de Blasio’s NYPD. A deputy warden and four C.O.s got suspended for the drastic miscue.

A week later, another murder suspect was set free from Rikers because of another clerical error that stemmed from reducing the bail for a felony gun possession charge to $1.00 and classifying his felony murder charge as ROR, Allowing him to get Released from the prison On his own Recognizance. Fortunately for the city and society, the felon turned himself.

The other suspected killer fugitive is still running free despite de Blasio’s confidence about his recapture.

Also on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error.

Another ambush got initiated when one of the prisoners accessed a control room and opened the doors for his fellow inmates, giving them the opportunity to beat the shit out of 4 C.O.’s.

And again on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error. The convict is also COVID-19 positive and took the metrocard and took NYC Transit and the LIRR home to his sister’s house in Suffolk. Even though he’s supposed to remain in quarantine under captivity for another week.

Has de Blasio, Speaker Cojo and the NY Council fauxgressive cronies ever given the thought that the reason Rikers is making C.O.’s work triple shifts is because solitary confinement has been cancelled and the only way to tamp down violence and keep order is to keep C.O.’s on duty for every minute and second that way they can justify these new supposed progressive policies? Even though it’s clearly not working? Even Jeff Bezos lets his Amazon FFC employees go home.

And while this FUBAR management is going on at Rikers, where is the NYC Jails Commissioner? Whose conspicuous absence after de Blasio put her on medical leave following the release of a fugitive killer that’s still on the loose has made her virtually unobtainable for comment?

Manhattan

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man looked directly at a 65-year-old woman walking on the sidewalk and kicked her in the chest and then stomped on her head three more times as she lied on the pavement in front of luxury apartment building, as the doorman closed the door as she writhed in pain on the ground while the man yelled at her that she didn’t belong here because of her race, which he presumed was Chinese, but she was really a Philipino woman. When the coast was clear, two building employees went outside and aided the woman although the NYPD said that no 911 calls were made after the attack despite the luxury building owners claims. The lunatic then threatened another man with a knife who tried to stop him from getting away according to a witness. 

The man got arrested at a hotel homeless shelter in 3 blocks south from where he pummeled the woman in broad daylight. The city placed him at that hotel after he served a 17-year-sentence for murdering his mother by stabbing her in the chest three times with a kitchen knife at her home in the Bronx. He was released on parole in late 2019 after being rejected two times the prior two years.

This barbaric attack was enough to garner enough local and national media  for Mayor de Blasio to give a token condemnation for violence towards Asian people, which exceedingly rose in the city he runs after he announced an undercover cop task force to catch bias violence against Asians in the act and demanded his constituents to report people even on the presumption they said slurs resembling bigotry against Asians. Which shows that everything the Blaz touches to try to stem crises of any kind, he exacerbates them

The psycho is now incarcerated and denied bail.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, during a Black Lives Matter protest, a man got his face lacerated when a demonstrator smashed the plexiglass window of a restaurant shanty while he was eating.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man ran down the sidewalk and clotheslined a 73-year-old to the pavement in broad daylight.

 

In Harlem, a man brutally beat his 10-year-old stepson to death inside their apartment at the St. Nicholas’ Houses. On the day before the murder, cops were sent to the building to respond to a 911 call describing a man yelling threats and banging on a wall When they arrived to the source of the disturbance, they waited in a hallway and left after 12 minutes after allegedly not hearing anything and getting a voicemail trying to contact the person who notified them. The next time the NYPD sent cops to return to the building to investigate another domestic violence call, the boy was lying dead in a bathtub hours after his stepfather threatened to beat him worse than he did the day before.

During the boy’s life, the NYC ACS were regular visitors to this household, as early as when he was a baby when his mother was charged for neglect. His stepfather had prior  domestic violence arrests for beating up his mother and also assaulted another woman in front of her 3 kids. The autopsy of his final beating of his stepson found internal injuries to his organs and broken ribs.

The cops managed to arrest the passenger but not the driver and found the murder weapon on the ground.

And again in East Harlem, an app-food delivery man got shot to death in a playground after he tried to stop his killer from stealing his e-bike while he was about to eat lunch. Robberies of ebikes have seen a massive surge during the year long pandemic, mostly off of gig working undocumented immigrants who make about 60 bucks a day and are usually too scared to go to the cops to report them stolen, making them easy prey for lowlife thieves. For some reason, the delivery guys have to purchase their own bikes even though they work for tech companies that make billions of dollars and don’t pay as much taxes as regular businesses in the city.

In Midtown, a man driving a commercial van blacked out and rear-ended another car and caused it to crash into a restaurant shanty, the van driver then collided into a fruit stand set up under a building scaffold.

The man had 15 prior arrests, his most recent one in February when he beat the shit out of his father while he was sleeping in his bed and then stomped on him with his boots and and evaded arrest even when he kicked in the door of his late girlfriend’s mother’s apartment and wanted to freeload because police couldn’t do anything because she didn’t want him to leave.

Kayla Estevez and her boyfriend, Ernest Wright, are pictured in an undated photo. Estevez is shown with a black eye in this photo, which her family claims was the result of domestic violence.

Her boyfriend claimed she crushed her larynx by herself. The woman suffered from bipolar disorder and her brother’s repeated calls for help to city government agencies to get help for her were for naught. So where the fuck was Thrive, @NYCFirstLady?

Again in Times Square, a man yelled a sexist insult and xenophobic slurs at a woman and told her children that she was going to kill them. Then the lunatic smacked the phone out of her hand as she was filming him and kicked it onto the tracks.

Governor Cuomo Confirms He Doesn’t Care

NY Post

 “Who cares [if they] died in the hospital, died in a nursing home? They died.”

That’s how Gov. Cuomo callously responded Friday to the damning state attorney general’s report that revealed his administration downplayed the total number of nursing home residents killed by COVID-19.

During his first remarks on the spiraling controversy, Cuomo said, “If you look at New York state, we have a lower percentage of deaths in nursing homes than other states.”

“A third of all deaths in this nation are from nursing homes,” he said.

“New York state, we’re only about 28 percent — only — but we’re below the national average in number of deaths in nursing homes.”

“But who cares — 33 [percent], 29 [percent] — died in the hospital, died in a nursing home? They died.”

Well, now it’s out. It had to take an investigation from New York’s Attorney General Letitia James (who he endorsed to win) about his lethal edicts and internecine obfuscations and obstructions of the state’s nursing home fatalities data to finally come out with this callous take from Mario’s son Governor Cuomo. Fatalities which he also callously conflated with his own father’s demise, which happened by natural causes while he wasn’t in a nursing home, especially a nursing home that was given immunity from responsibility of the care of residents and patients.

But don’t be mistaken, Cuomo’s dismissive response about being accountable for his negligence is not out of character for a guy who once remarked when 73 people died from COVID19 back in May that because less people were dying of the contagion at the time that it was actually good news because of the absurd reality we’re all living in.

Looks like the covid chickens are coming home to roost now and this grotesque admission is just Cuomo basically saying that, eh, I’ve had a good ride with all the worldwide adulation, celebrity friends, a best selling book prematurely touting his leadership, a made up Emmy award, and fawning coverage from corporate news networks. Too bad this is going to put a massive crimp on his attempt to keep his job for another four years or maybe one more if AG James investigation finds more heinous discoveries behind Cuomo and his three pips Derosa, Muncia and his DOH patsy Zucker’s machinations that led to all those preventable deaths of senior citizens forced to suffocate and die alone.

It’s been an entire year since COVID landed in Washington. Followed by it’s two month predatory spread across the nation and ravaging New York, leading to over 30,000 citizens dead and now confirmed over 12,000 (and counting) senior citizens dead and Cuomo is still shameless and hubristic about it all. The governor is clearly more concerned about the brand he made for himself that he feels his decisions were acts of God.

“Everyone did the best they could” Governor Cuomo “humbly” said coming clean on the real total of nursing home deaths. “Everyone” meaning the Royal Everyone.

 

 

New York State Assembly Wants To Give Governor Cuomo Power To Rendition Citizens

Albany, New York

For about 10 months now during this pandemic, Governor Cuomo has wielded his emergency executive powers anointed to him by the New York State Assembly and Senate with equal incompetence and malfeasance. So instead of repealing them now that there are multiple vaccines to fight the coronavirus and nearly a million available to dispense to the citizenry they all serve, they would rather give the Pandemic Power Tripper even more disturbing powers for him to exploit so he can keep them and his stature and COVID19 celebrity secure.

They want to give Cuomo the ability to deploy the authorities to detain citizens suspected of carrying the contagion

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Not only is this legislation brazenly unconstitutional, easily fraying everyone’s fourth amendment right, but like everything else that’s resulted from Cuomo’s micromanaging of the pandemic response will result in bumbling bureaucratic errors and chaos. Kind of like one of the seminal scenes in the movie Brazil when the SWAT teams search for government dissenters.

The coincidental timing of this bill is uncanny (like mostly everything else that’s happened to benefit the elites in recent American history) even though there are 3 vaccines available to the general public and doing this in attempt to stem another epidemic is going to an unnecessary extreme because the Governor announced yesterday that there was a man infected with a new strain of COVID that has spread in England, which led Prime Minister Boris Johnson to shut down the whole country (but not the schools (!!!)).

It’s not known if this new strain is as fatal as the contagion that’s already killed millions but apparently it doesn’t matter because this is about Cuomo maintaining his status as King of Lockdown New York. Because of his decision to only let hospitals distribute the vaccines instead of counties set up centers to inoculate people as fast as possible, it has botched the rollout of the vaccines and has left more people vulnerable to contagion. Plus add the fact that people don’t trust the vaccine because of myriad reasons from concerns of withdrawal symptoms and allergies and of course Cuomo initially sowing doubt about the vaccines because Trump fast tracked it to get the economy rolling again. 

What’s amazing about this new bill and edict that gives Cuomo more authority is that only a week ago he wanted to open Buffalo Bills stadium for in person attendance for their long awaited playoff game next week with provisions that everyone get tested and then submit to be traced after the game ended. Basically, the game is being treated like a state surveillance experiment. Even though it will only the arena will be filled  to 1/3 capacity, there’s no guarantee that no one will be following protocols like mask wearing or distancing once they leave the game. It’s not unimaginable that if someone gets infected they can be whisked away by state troopers or local cops if they are shopping in a supermarket or mall or even participating in or organizing a protest.

To give a real life idea of what kind of blow back from this will ensue:

Another disturbing factor about this legalization of rendition is the anti-transparency policy already established by the Cuomo administration during this pandemic, as with the actual amount of the deceased caused by Cuomo’s edict giving immunity to nursing homes for taking in COVID patients the same secrecy is being implemented regarding the vaccine rollout in the entire state of New York.

This is why this new bill needs to eviscerated. This bill is more to cover Governor Cuomo’s ass than any concern for the health and well-being of his constituency. This is not just about stopping a pandemic, but also stopping the sickness of this new normal of paranoia and limited freedom under a kakistocratic autocracy being instituted under this megalomaniac mook from Queens.

New Bad Days 80: Young People Sow Disorder On The Streets With Rumbles In The Presence Of Cops And Ultraviolent Attacks On Cars In The Middle Of Traffic; Unhinged Man Disrupts Outdoor Church Concert With Random Gunfire; Man Stalks And Clobbers Governor Cuomo’s Staffer With A Cinderblock; Four EMTs Get Ambushed By Muggers Making Bogus 911 Calls; Fed Ex Delivery Man Gets Shot And Food App Delivery Guys Get Robbed On The Job; 16-Year-Old Boy Murdered By Acquaintance That Gave Him A Pat On The Back; Another 16-Year-Old Boy Recidivist Criminal Behavior Enabled By Judge And Homicides, Shootings, Shootouts, Muggings, Burglaries, Random Attacks On Citizens, Home Invasions, Criminal Aggression Against Cops And Stray Bullets Continues Reaching New Plateaus To Complete 2020

2020 in New York City society concludes with distressingly significant and historic rises in major felonious crimes. Shootings went up 97 % while victims wounded by bullets rose over 100%. 447 people were murdered this year, a rise of 41% and the highest amount of homicides in over a decade. Two other serious crimes also went up in large margins with burglaries at 41% and auto theft at 67%. Although there were slight decreases in felony assaults and robberies, there were over 94,000 felonies committed last year and over 110,000 misdemeanor offenses (which the PDF doesn’t add the total sum on in the pdf released to the public). While not listed here, bike theft went up by 27%, coinciding  with the rise of bike commuting because of fears of getting infected with coronavirus using mass transit.

Even  though there is controversy about the effects the states bail reform laws have had on the uptick of these crimes along and edicts allowing the release of convicts to stem the spread of contagion in prisons because of the pandemic; regarding the gun violence crisis, over 3,000 criminals were set loose without bail after being found in possession of guns and recidivism continued to thrive with these perpetrators because of the flaws in the new law.

While the pandemic has had an effect on crime, being that the streets have been more deserted in the day and darker at night because everything is locked down, it is only more illuminated now because felonies have been rising steadily for the last 5 years before a novel virus invaded the five boroughs. While the Mayor of New York City continues to evade these horrific upticks after years of bragging how he ran the safest big city in the world, the reality on the streets and what’s seen by his constituents tell different stories. Stories that will be told by more citizens since poorly written laws and a stunning lack of city services continue to mount in 2021 without sensible modifications or a scintilla of leadership as a disease continues it’s predominant omniscience over the five boroughs.

But all the Blaz wants to do is dance.

Then he got confronted by the NYC Sheriffs officers after he closed and ran away from them, got in his jeep and proceeded to run over one of the deputies and drove a few blocks with the cop on the hood. The leisure revolutionary wound up getting caught and arrested and immediately released on his own recognizance after charges for resisting arrest, reckless driving menacing and vehicular assault for intentionally injuring a police officer.

The contrasts between between the two protest demonstrations after election day and the public assembly for this hole in the wall bar in Staten Island and the response by authorities are blatantly and stunningly egregious. This mild-mannered maniac proprietor/bartender runs over a cop and gets released in a day while people marching on the streets in the Villages gets subjected to ultraviolence from the NYPD for even a an accidental nudge to an officer. Plus the fact that this bartender wouldn’t have got away with this unscathed or even still be alive if he was a Black or Latino bartender.

Then there are the hundreds of S.I. residents (and some visitors from nearby states) clustering on a street in solidarity for the bar while standing on top of sheriff patrol cars and the most Commissioner Shea sends are four or five cops to guard Mac’s door for a few hours. No choppers, no pepper spray, no bike cops, no MOVE BACK MOVE BACK.

Mayor de Blasio’s doesn’t even has an answer for this. More likely he thinks the revolution in Staten Island is going to fade away if he doesn’t mention it. Just like all that police brutality he continues to ignore. Just like the stealth mass gathering events arranged by the Satmar communities in Brooklyn. All these indications of contagion that are in his face (and everyone else’s) even while speakeasy raves and bottle parties are getting repressed throughout the boroughs.

Then the mayor has the audacity to chastise parents for being too cautious sending their kids back to school even though a lot of them can’t, like the mother running small her business on the brink of bankruptcy in the Bronx. Yet some kook bartender is running a revolution in plain sight while co-opting the antifa-like tactics of political movements that he the Blaz ideologically agrees with.

Something stinks to high hell about all of this. To be continued in the next episode in Impunity City.

Your city.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The New York City Lockdown Follies

Starring: The Punk Ass and The Dumb Ass

New Normal, New York

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

Beginning with the megalomaniac tin horn autocrat in Albany.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Remotely of course.

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

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

THE CITY

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

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

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

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

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

Go on…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COVID D’etat

https://i.insider.com/5f7c3ce1282c500018c78c08?width=1100&format=jpeg&auto=webp

Washington D.C, America

What a way to end a term. All throughout his presidency, Donald Trump frequently employed teasers when he spoke to the press and address the nation through his rare addresses to the people and his millions of tweets, mostly the refrain “we’ll see what happens” Much to the President’s chagrin, he didn’t employ that phrase when he blew off the severity of the COVID and now it’s certainly looking like the novel virus will actually thwart his re-election bid with a fucking vengeance.

Look what’s happened since Donald got infected (and when he knew he was already). While he was recuperating on supplemental oxygen and a Long Island Ice Tea styled cocktail of experimental coronavirus resistant drugs, over 30 people that came in contact or was in the presence of the President also got infected with the COVID. And all signs pointed to and were confirmed by a shitstorm of news reports of the announcement of Trump’s pick to replace the departed Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s supreme court seat to GOP and Big Corporation darling Amy Cohen Barrett in the Rose Garden.

Now it looks as if this mad rush to fill RBG’s position was a huge mistake and Trump and the GOP party should have took their own advice and waited until the election year was over to announce their pick instead of gathering together without masks and appropriate measure of distancing. And continuing the celebration of Trump’s nomination in a soiree inside the White House. Because over 30 people in Trump’s circle caught the contagion.

And these were all of Trump’s closest and most recognizable aides, notably the revolting adviser Stephen Miller and press speaker Kayleign McEnany and former steady state spin meister Kellyanne Conway, who wound up giving the bug to her rebelliously incorrigible and social media savvy daughter (whose online rants made her mom quit her job). COVIDIOT Senator Mike Lee got infected and he hugged two people and two other GOP party senators got the Rona too, which should sideline them from their official duties questioning the justice nominee under oath in the Senate.

On Trump’s re-election team, his campaign manager Bill Seppian tested positive along with a few other aides. Former NJ Governor Chris Christie wound up hospitalized after getting infected and he was working on Trump’s campaign and the RNC Chairperson Rona McDonnell caught the Rona also. Oh my mistake her name is Ronna, fuck it, it still works.

Bad enough Trump decided to play down the virus and his insouciance led to the deaths of 210,000 Americans, but his cocksure defiance of just taking the simplest precaution of wearing a mask allow the virus to spread and  take over his administration and his Republican party allies/sycophants is purely a COVID d’etat. Sure it would not be remiss to cite some kind of divine intervention as obvious as Justice RBG’s apparition hovering over the Rose Garden and hexing it, but Trump and the Senate Republicans were already making a list to fill her seat a week before she died (a list that included Trump’s nemesis Lying Ted Cruz) so they surely don’t give a shit about supernatural shit like that as much as they have fear in the God they act like they believe in. No, the Rona is the real shit, it doesn’t adhere to religion and politics, it doesn’t discriminate and gets everyone. And Trump and his maskless avengers were easy prey for it.

In just a few weeks after Trump got the COVID, “Nothing Will Fundamentally Change” Joe Biden shot up in the polls without doing a damn thing except doing the obvious, wearing the face mask. Trump polling with senior citizens has cratered, a demographic that put him over the top in 2016 (in correlation with millions of people not showing up to vote). Trump also sabotaged himself by announcing on the twitter that he won’t sign a new emergency stimulus bill unless he wins re-election. And the batshit nutty video he produced of him standing tall on the White House balcony, pulling off his mask and gasping for air didn’t work like he thought it would. Although Trump survived, COVID-19 still stomped his ass and his manufactured projection of strength was a sad parody of despotic might.

But apparently, Trump is still trying to put a brave front despite his waning popularity and it looks the president is still loaded on all those steroids and the experimental drugs the taxpayers paid for that are not be available to them or will be even affordable to them when they will be.

He’s not only loaded, he’s straight up tripping balls. Trump is treating his still in process recovery as confirmation of his immunity to the novel virus after his obviously intimidated physician announced he wasn’t a transmission risk anymore. The president even went on Medal of Honor recipient Rush Limbaugh’s show and got into some saber rattling against Iran by using the obscenity “fuck” to emphasize his threat against the nation that was left uncensored by the cancerous blabbermouth’s producers.

Now the crazy bastard is going back on the campaign trail, greeting his enthusiastic followers again in spite of what professional physicians, the press, and Trump’s million of detractors say (and even Trump’s own advisors). Surely he will be maskless too, as his audience will imitate in kind. The glaring aspect about this projection of bravery against COVID-19 is that it mostly stems not from the President’s (and his allies and followers) aversion to wearing the face masks but it’s to project legitimacy to being able to existentially adjust to the novel virus and to work while in the presence of it.

From the brand new digital news publication the Daily Poster:

To help their corporate donors boost profits and stock prices, Donald Trump and Republican lawmakers have pushed hard to force workers back into unsafe workplaces. During the pandemic, the GOP has brushed off science and reopened economies, demanded liability shields for employers, ended special pandemic unemployment relief, helped Amazon block a worker safety initiative and encouraged states to punish workers who don’t return to their jobs. 

For those forced back to COVID-infected workplaces, the Trump administration has weakened the agency that is supposed to be policing workplace safety. And now a new study shows the results: death rates spiked almost immediately after workers pleaded with that agency to help, but were likely ignored. 

The analysis of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) data comes from researchers at Harvard, Boston Children’s Hospital and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. It shows that “there is a correlation between OSHA complaints and COVID-19 mortality” — in specific, COVID-related complaints to the agency “are correlated with (COVID-related) deaths 17 days later.” 

During the pandemic, researchers note that OSHA “has not issued any emergency or permanent standard specific to COVID-19 exposure at the workplace” and “had issued only four citations related to COVID-19.” 

So it’s easy to see why Trump is tweeking on that steroid cocktail he’s on. The president, using his real estate savvy, is trying to legitimize his own diagnosis and inspire the masses to go back to work because he thinks phony courage is the remedy against COVID-19. And the rush to confirm Amy Cohen Barrett, who contracted COVID-19 only a few months ago, makes the prospect to shoot down any OSHA cases brought to SCOTUS highly inevitable.

That is clearly the GOP’s top objective regardless of how many people are killed in the process — and you can even see it in the Supreme Court situation. Trump and Senate Republicans are right now trying to force lawmakers and congressional staff into the COVID hot zone exploding in the U.S. Capitol in order to try to install another corporate rubber-stamp on the Supreme Court, which would ultimately boost corporate profits and crush workers.

Horrifying as that sociopathic plan is, it is merely a microcosm of the GOP’s larger project: Their entire agenda is designed to force workers into unsafe workplaces in order to help their corporate donors.

Those donors want a right-wing Supreme Court, and they don’t care how many federal workers are killed to make that happen.

Evidently with the hot zone Rose Garden nomination party and now with Judge Garrett testifying for the job now, that’s exactly what Trump (and maybe an asymptomatic Judge Cohen Grarret) did, and his top GOP were willing to sacrifice themselves as well. Even if it was a more of a display of herd arrogance and ignorance than herd immunity.

But the existential dread still remains. COVID-19 is still among us, and infecting thousands more a day, even if it’s not killing like it did back in April and May. 50 million people are unemployed and small businesses are dead or in purgatory and schools are still not fully open. Despite Trump’s bombastic tweets of fallacious inspiration, the majority of the American people still have no confidence to fully return to normal. And although Trump’s base is still holding steady, a lot of them are wearing masks at rallies, so there’s not much confidence there either.

The COVID d’etat may not have taken over the entire Trump administration, but they did take over the president himself. Easily too, because the fucker was asking for it. Although he’s still tweeting like a cellphone junkie, he definitely has lost his mojo. It’s only inevitable that he’ll get the Rona again and he’s kind of acting like how a dying man does in the last phase of death, and this round of campaign rallies is basically his bucket list. He probably won’t die, but in all likelihood his presidency will or even if he does get re-elected, he’ll get infected again because he’ll get filled with all those phenomenal virus resistant drugs that he’s loaded on now and probably taking everyday to keep him moving. No wonder he thinks COVID-19 is a blessing from God.

So might as well go out on a high note. And dance, dance, dance.

New Bad Days 77: NYPD Continues Attacking Protesters While Enabling Vehicular Violence Against Them In Manhattan And Lynch Mobs And Anarchy In Brooklyn; The High Frequency Of Random Assaults Claims Rick Moranis As A Victim While Brazen Gunpoint Muggings Occur In Broad Daylight By Talyor Swift’s Townhouses; A Man Shreds An A Train By Throwing Shit On The Tracks; Stray Bullets Hit A Boy During J’Ouvert Parade That Was Supposed To Be Cancelled, Hit A Man While Protecting His Children At An Auto Dealership And And Killed A Woman When She Looked Outside Her Window;The Fast And The Furious Movies Are Being Recreated In A Home Depot Parking Lot; BLM Cosplayers Steal American Flags After They Went To The Wrong House To Yell At And Shootings Meant For Their Targets Continue To Escalate Along With Muggings And Burglaries

On Labor Day weekend, the NYPD made a grand announcement to, well, fight crime. Commissioner Shea and his fellow high brass fellow Blue Bloods assembled and deployed cops to the streets to ramp up arrests and tamp down on gun violence, primarily in Brooklyn where shooting have led to triple digit percentage increases from last year and other myriad crimes that have seen high percentage upticks in hotspot areas. Whether this sudden focus on serving and protecting the public was motivated by accusations from the citizenry and elected officials of an intentional slowdown or by a dead pool put together by a bunch of sick fucks in a Long Island bar is purely coincidental. And if it was motivated whether if NYPD cops actually placed bets on that pool to keep the body count low is taking cynicism to a higher level, although not highly illogical. More likely it’s because Dermot’s blood probably boiled just enough to match the temperature of bowl of lukewarm tomato soup.

Following the holiday weekend that saw over 20 shootings and a protest whose participants caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages vandalizing stores they passed by, Commish Shea  declared the weekend was a  great success while his feckless boss and toady Mayor de Blasio remarked how peaceful the streets were and the city was safe as ever.

The only good news, probably the only good news all year concerning de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD, is that they made a historic shitload of gun possession arrests during the peaceful weekend. Proving that such enforcement is possible without a shady unit of Punisher wannabes but soberly also proving that the handgun stockpiles keep rising.

But still no one is asking where these guns are coming from. Which is hard to extract such information when the victims refuse to divulge the gunmen and it’s also hard to procure data for guns when only 20% of the over 1,000 shootings this year has lead to actual arrests which correlates with a 40% rise in murder and a bigger presence of gang activity.

Manhattan

In Times Square, a group of protesters holding a demonstration for a man who was killed by police in Rochester while in custody was crossing the street with the green light and walk signal and then was approached by a car with tinted windows and a bull bar on the front that was slowly proceeding. Then the driver hit the gas pedal and proceeded to go through them and speed down 7th Avenue without any pursuit by the NYPD despite the presence of cops outnumbering protesters that were monitoring them before the incident. Even though the car came close to hitting people and managed to clip a bunch of bikes.

A vehicle seen driving through a crowd of protesters in Times Square on Thursday

The people in the car, which was recently purchased at an NYPD auction, were a group of people that were counter-protesting. One of them was the woman who vandalized the Black Lives Matter street mural in front of Trump Tower with paint a total of 3 times.

Minutes before the attempt at vehicular manslaughter of dozens of people on 7th Avenue, six counter-protesters were escorted by the NYPD around the corner. During a discussion with the MAGA group, over 30 cops were standing and milling around, including many of higher rank. Then they all got in the car that would be weaponized shortly as a group of cops formed a wall protecting them from the people witnessing this strange occurance of the NYPD co-operating with and chaperoning this certain activist group.

The NYPD did not levy any charges on the driver or his passengers, even though the last person who tried to run over people in Times Square got arrested immediately. Also, the terrorist caliphate ISIS recommends the weaponization of vehicles to kill masses of people, which happened on the West St. bike path 3 years ago when a man ran down and murdered 8 people. But since the NYPD recently used two of their SUV’s to barrel through protesters on the street, running over people is now legal and a form of self-defense.

The woman recognized for her vandalism by Trump Tower claimed that she and her co-horts were scared and the driver panicked because someone allegedly hit the car with an object or punched it. Good thing they kept that bull bar on.

15 days later in Times Square, another demonstration was held by about a hundred people protesting against federal ICE detention centers allowing a doctor to perform hysterectomies on immigrant women without their consent. Then it got disrupted by cops as they swarmed and arrested 86 people for publicly assembling in the street as an automated recording played proclaiming that the public assembly was unlawful.

In Herald Square a man got slashed in the neck during a fight with another man on the 6th avenue subway platform.

In the Upper West Side, a man was shot to death on the street after he stabbed someone during a fight.

Also in the Upper West Side, a man threw rocks with profane messages attached to them at windows of a broadcast network building following an attack and destroying a camera belonging to a rival local new correspondent and a photographer by Hudson Yards.

Again in the Upper West Side, a man who chucked a rock at a cop’s head is still on the loose three months after the incident.

And again in the Upper West Side, Rick Moranis was walking on the sidewalk and a man walking towards him directly punches him in the head, knocking him down to the ground in broad daylight.

In Harlem at the 148th St. Station, a man was found dead on the 3 train.

Also in Harlem, a man fondled a woman on her crotch while she was walking on the sidewalk, then he robbed her wallet and went to a deli to use her debit card.

Again in Harlem, a man beat a homeless man to death on the street.

And again in Harlem, an off-duty C.O. crashed into a parked car while driving drunk, then the owner of the damaged vehicle slashed him in the face.

And again in Harlem, a man got hit by an SUV when he ran a red light on his ATV vehicle while trying to hop the sidewalk. He died from his injuries a week later.

And again in Harlem, a man was shot in the leg after getting into a street fight.

And again in Harlem, a man was shot in the torso on the boulevard.

And again in Harlem, two women were both shot in the arm on Riverside Dr.

And again in Harlem, a man about to cross the street got killed instantly by a hit and run driver.

And again in Harlem, a man followed a woman into an apartment building and attempted to mug her in the elevator but was unsuccessful, but two days later he followed another woman into an apartment building and helped her carry a cart up the stairs, then he attacked her inside the elevator and robbed $300 off her.

And again in Harlem, a man robbed a hat off a vendor’s table and got into a fight with the 72-year-old salesman who tried to stop him and shoved him to the ground with such force that he wound up killing him. A memorial was set up on a linkNYC kiosk for people to hang hats on in tribute to the courageous man.

In East Harlem, a man got shot in the ass following an argument on a street corner.

Also in East Harlem, a man walked into an apartment during a party and shot a man in the stomach.

In Midtown a 18-year-old man got caught dealing drugs on the street weeks following shooting a man on the grounds of the St. Nicholas Houses months after being released by a juvenile detention center.

Also in Midtown, two men broke into a designer watch store at midnight and robbed over six figures worth of watches in a few minutes.

Again in Midtown, a man that arranged a drug deal with two men on the street went awry when the men saw his upscale duds and decided to rob him instead. The mark got stabbed in the back when he tried to get his designer bag back and the two thieves got away with that plus his cellphones and wallet.

And again in Midtown, a man with a baseball bat swung it at a group of people on the sidewalk a month after he threw rocks at various consulate buildings around town.

And again in Midtown, a man randomly suckerpunched a 77-year-old man who was about to walk by him, causing him to fall on the sidewalk and crack his skull. The lunatic let his victim know that’s what he does.

And again in Midtown, a gang of four men rushed up behind a man walking on the sidewalk and walloped him with a cane then stabbed him multiple times.

And again in Midtown, the giant face masks on the lions at the New York Public Library keep getting stolen. Those look like they can make good canopies for homeless encampments that aren’t under scaffolding.

And again in Midtown, a woman committed suicide by jumping into the East River.

And again in Midtown, a caravan of pickup truck drivers boosting for President Trump blocked all the lanes on 5th avenue in front of his building, which would have obstructed NYPD and FDNY vehicles in case of an emergency.

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man kidnapped his and his ex-girlfriend’s son after having a dispute at a park.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, a man broken into an auto dealership warehouse and stole a SUV and then crashed it into a median trying to get away and then abandoned it.

Again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man set a couple’s apartment on fire while they were still inside. One of the residents died weeks later.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man that got stabbed during a street fight died from his wounds a month later.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man trying to steal a scooter belonging to a man who was buying items in a deli got stabbed in the back with a knife the worker gave to the attacker.

In Penn Station, a homeless man randomly attacked two women in 120 seconds when he shoved a woman on the sidewalk and sucker punched another woman causing her to fall onto the street.

In Washington Heights and Inwood, three men mugged nine people in 8 days.

Also in Washington Heights, a man was shot three times on the street and then died from his wounds.

Again in Washington Heights,  a man walking on the sidewalk was suddenly run over by a speeding driver in an SUV. A Samaritan who owns the deli on that corner pulled him from under the car and then the driver backed up and tried to hit the man he plowed again and sped away down the street. Cops did catch the psycho driver later but wouldn’t disclose any information about him to the Samaritan. But why should they after what happened at the protest at Times Square the day before, because running people over with your car is legal provided you have good cause.

And again in Washington Heights, protesters having a Black Lives Matter demonstration retreated from the George Washington Bridge when cops blocked them off and then marched to 34th Pct. and were met by a miltia of cops decked in riot gear, champing at the bit for a confrontation. A clash between both groups ensued after a high brass officer broke a woman’s arm by throwing her on the ground and a protester hit a cop with a sign, leading to 6 people getting arrested.

And again in Washington Heights, a man committed suicide by jumping off a public housing building.

And again in Washington Heights, a homeless man stabbed another homeless man to death on a street corner during a fight when they were both inebriated.

In the Upper East Side at the 63rd St./Lexington Avenue Station, a man attacked another man as he waiting for the F train by randomly slashing him twice on the hand and chest.

Also in the Upper East Side, a woman walked into a cellphone store and was mooching off the power supplies to charge her celly while not wearing a face mask. When a worker confronted her about violating the store’s pandemic rules, the woman lashed out and call her a racial slur and threw a small plastic bin at her face and she punched another worker who was escorting her out the store.

Again in the Upper East Side, a man held up a bank at gunpoint and robbed it of $5,000 and then got grabbed by the cops 7 blocks down who recognized him.

In Inwood, a man brutally beat and stabbed his girlfriend to death inside her apartment after she let him stay over days after he mugged a man for $10 by stabbing him three times with his victim’s own knife. The killer then called the police on himself and threatened to engage in a shootout with them in the hopes of going down in a hail of bullets.

Also in Inwood at the 207th St. Station, a window on one of the doors of the A train was smashed up.

In Hamilton Heights, a gangbanger was shooting at people on the street as cops were passing by while on patrol, then they chased the shooter and caught him.

In Central Park, a dead body was found in a lake nearby Columbus Circle.

Also in Central Park, a homeless man was found dead leaning on a rock on the grass nearby 109th st.. It was found that he was beaten to death by a man who left his body there with help from an accomplice.

Again in Central Park, helicopters have been flying perilously lower over citizens trying to relax on the green spaces. Remember back in June and in Hell’s Kitchen last month when the NYPD was flying choppers over protests in Brooklyn and over an activists apartment building that it looked like you could almost touch them? Looks like they opened it up for these hot dogger chopper pilots to do the same with impunity.

And again in Central Park, a man fishing at a lake reeled in a dead body.

And again in Central Park, a man was stabbed in the chest during an argument with his attacker by the Wollman Rink.

In Columbus Circle, a man randomly shoved another man onto the train tracks and is currently on the loose.

Also in Columbus Circle, an 82-year-old woman got hit by a man on a ride share moped while she was crossing the street with red.

In Washington Square Park, a rave went on until the evening morning hours as revelers drank booze and disregarded wearing face masks and social distancing. NYPD cops deployed to the area only watched the partying and hardly made an effort to monitor and disperse the clustered crowd. And then there was a bigger more clustered pandemic violating rave at the park the next week and the NYPD still made no effort to stop it and tell revelers loaded on booze to go back to their dorms and apartments.

In Washington Square, a man tagged an NYU building with swastikas and anti-Semetic and anti-Black graffiti messages.

In Greenwich Village, a man sat down on a bench where a woman and her two children were sitting on and zipped open his shorts and masturbated in front of them. A Samaritan nearby protected them from the skeev who took offense at his concern and threatened to hit with a brick. With witnesses filming the altercation with their cellphones instead of dialing 911, the Samaritan then chased him for blocks and lost him by the West 4th St. Station.

Also in Greenwich Village, dozens of cops charged after a group of people right after an automated warning was played on a LARD speaker when one of them stepped one foot on the road. The cops managed to knock over tables that were set up for outdoor dining outside a restaurant where people were dining and not associated with those they arrested that the NYPD charged with engaging in an unlawful assembly and obstructing traffic; which the NYPD themselves wound up doing when they were securing the area in the middle of the street and on the crosswalks

12 people were arrested and the apparent rationale for this swarm was that they came from a demonstration and art exchange in Washington Square Park that the NYPD aggressively broke up.

Something tells me that de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD are trying to make anarchist jurisdictions on purpose.

In the Flatiron District, a man accessed an apartment building and hot wired the elevator panel which gave him access to a residence. He banged on the door and then grabbed a 78-year-old woman by the throat when she opened the door and stole her purse. Then her 79-year-old husband caught the thief coming from the stairs and got into a tussle with the thief, who punched him twice and knocked him down and then took cash and cards from the purse and split.

In the West Village at the 14th St. Station, a homeless man with maniacal violent tendencies picked up some metal clmaps that were left around on the platform for some reason and threw them onto the tracks.

The unreasonable act caused 56 trains to go out of service. The man laughed his ass off while being detained by other Samaritans until the police arrived.

The crazed man previously went bezerk inside a cellphone store when he swung a metal pipe at people and then grabbed a city garbage can and destroyed a sign outside.

At the arraignment for the A train derailing, with the man going off on a tangent in the courtroom, the judge wisely convicted him and set his bail at $50,000.

And again in Williamsburg, 24 police cars were found with their tires slashed.

And again in Williamsburg, a bunch of people at a block party painted a mural on the street aptly describing the solidarity feelings of the people’s opinion about the Governor of New York and the Mayor of New York City. de Blasio’s D.O.T. immediately erased the mural the next evening with black paint, but the memory remains.

The man who led the demonstration incited his over-enthusiastic followers to burn face masks and boxes in the middle of the street.

The presence of sheriffs and NYPD officers did not intimidate the mass crowd of people, of which only consisted of men. The presence of law enforcement also didn’t intimidate the crowd as they converged on a man trying to reason with the crowd to wear masks and beat him down to the ground and also chased a photographer down the street then surrounded him on the sidewalk and pinned him against the door of a building and knocked him down as he was trying to walk away from them. The presence of their district city councilman and the organizer of the demonstration and the mob on the street only enabled their recklessness as the latter yelled out to them that they were his soldiers. Nobody was arrested or even admonished by the NYPD, even when he went to report his attackers for beating him up and breaking his camera.

The next day, the mob leader went on social media and announced another demonstration against the lockdown order and repeatedly denounced a reporter while holding his picture up for his followers while calling them his soldiers to target him. Then during the demonstration, the massive assembly the organizer/general pinned the targeted journalist against the wall and they verbally and physically assaulted him. The mob attacked another reporter who was standing on a trailer trying to film the ruckus as the mob hit him with a pole then pounced and beat him up when he came down to the sidewalk.

The NYPD was nowhere to be found during this lynch mob attack and did not arrest anyone involved. Most conspicuously absent was the presence of the mass deployment of cops that was normally seen during the George Floyd protests and every other protest or public assembly or gathering in the past month (especially the ones where people are riding bikes)

Also missing was the arbitrary and ultraviolent aggression the cops utilize against them plus the kettling tactic, of which all these riotous revelers have already committed to do themselves.  What de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD did do instead was turn tail and run away when the mob got more riotous.

And it shouldn’t come as no surprise. In fact it was expected because the organizer Heschy Tischler proclaimed right in front of your city’s police force that he was good friends of the department, giving him and his “soldiers”  to feel like that they have their own set of laws and have the hubris to brag about it. It’s these cops pictured below with Heezy have permitted an actual anarchist jurisdiction in Borough Park while treating them like a sovereign state.

Cuomo’s COVID Comedy Is Not Pretty

New Normal, New York

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

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

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

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

Witness this from the Queens Chronicle:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

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


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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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