Just two days after black nationalist Frank James shot twenty-nine people on a New York City subway, useless, feckless Mayor Eric Adams decided to take action. Stupid action, but he did take action.
Students at schools had to shelter in place, New Yorkers were advised to avoid the area and power on some rail lines was temporarily shut down after a person opened fire and shot 10 people inside of a subway car in Brooklyn on Tuesday.
The event has revived conversations about public safety in New York. City departments have previously issued guidance on how to improve safety throughout the city’s transit system.
So Mayor Adams is going to issue tips for not getting murdered on the subway. wow, what a great idea!
NYPD’s tips on subway safety
Wait behind the yellow line on the platform, away from the edge.
Keep a close eye on your personal belongings, especially electronics.
Keep purses in front of you, even if using a shoulder strap.
Keep your wallet tucked away, in a place besides your back pocket.
Avoid falling asleep on the subway.
Now I don’t want to the the sarcastic a-hole here, but I learned all those “tips” by watching a few episodes of Seinfeld. And while these idiotic “tips” are simple common sense, I would suggest you not play Risk on the subway, nor should you insult Ukraine.
Eric Adams, the mayoral successor to the godawful Bill de Blasio, believes he can allow non-citizens to vote in local NYC elections. It’s heartening to see the politicians will continue their destruction of the Big Apple. Good freakin’ riddance.
New York City may soon permit hundreds of thousands of noncitizens to vote in municipal elections, while Mayor Bill de Blasio and his successor, Eric Adams, feel differently about the prospect.
The bill aims to amend the city’s charter by including a new chapter with provisions for allowing green card holders and those with work authorization to register to vote and take part in citywide elections through the creation of a separate municipal voter registration. Adams supported the concept when he was campaigning for mayor earlier this year.
This jackass was allegedly a New York City police officer, and yet he knows nothing about the law.
De Blasio, meanwhile, said on “The Brian Lehrer Show” in September that there are “two problems” with the bill.
“One, I don’t believe it is legal. Our law department is very clear on this,” the mayor said. “I really believe this has to be decided at the state level, according to state law.”
Holy shite, when communist/anarchist Bill de Blasio has to tell you something is illegal…
During the 2020 riots, Antifa and BLM started defacing, destroying, and toppling statues of Confederate heroes. At the time, many of us said they would come for the Founders next. The left vehemently denied this at the time, and look where we are.
New York City’s Public Design Commission voted unanimously Monday to remove a statue of Thomas Jefferson from the legislative chamber at City Hall by the end of the year, after four lawmakers testified that his status as a slaveholder was offensive to the council’s African American members. The nine-member commission are all mayoral appointees.
I’m not a fan of Jefferson – he attacked and slandered George Washington during the general’s second term – but he helped craft the Declaration of Independence, arguably the world’s greatest document of freedom. These African-American council members should be kissing the feet of that statue, because without Jefferson, America would be a much worse place.
For over 100 years, the 7-foot-tall statue of the third US President and author of the Declaration of Independence, has stood in the chamber. According to The New York Post, the statue, which is also an historical monument, “…was gifted to the city in 1834 by Uriah Phillips Levy, the nation’s first Jewish Naval commodore and an admirer of Jefferson’s belief in religious freedom.”
I’m sure this has nothing to do with the Jewish Naval commodore, because everyone loves the Jews in New York City, amirite? This country is so racist that people are literally risking their lives to get here, but please, go on about your feelings.
You a-holes live in the greatest country in the world – for now – and you’re crapping all over it.
The city of New York, like many cities, is having a tough time keeping merchandise stocked on their store’s shelves. A combination of slow supply lines, a lack of people wanting to work, and shoplifting has turned New York City into 1950’s Moscow.
Stores such as CVS, Walgreens and Duane Reade are all running very low on goods. Supplies are being held up on cargo ships that are taking up to four weeks to dock at US ports.
Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with the global pandemic. Sure, there were supply chain troubles when the Chinese Wuhan Virus began – because everyone was on lockdown – but now this is more about White House policies than any “slow supply lines.”
A lack of manpower to unload them and to drive goods around the US is causing a giant backlog.
It’s almost as if people don’t want to work when the government is paying them more to stay home.
Experts have warned the government to intervene or face spiraling inflation and unemployment, as rocketing demand for goods in short supply pushes their prices up. US consumers have already seen prices of everyday items rise in recent months, with economists warning of an extended period of inflation that will push up the cost of living.
Erik bought a Dallas Cowboys jersey a few days ago. It was on sale because the player was just traded. I selected the “three-to seven days delivery” to save a few bucks. The other day I was sent an email claiming the jersey would be here on October 20th – two weeks after it was ordered.
I’m starting to believe Kamala wasn’t joking when she said we should start purchasing Christmas presents now. I don’t think she meant to say it, but she probably knows what we do not; the administration is doing nothing to encourage Americans to go back to work, and doing even less to fix the supply chains.
Joe Biden built that!
Bill de Blasio, the communist, anti-police mayor of New York City, has decided to prop up his plummeting approval ratings by throwing a tickertape parade for essential workers.
Police officers need not apply.
A big celebration is coming to mark New York City’s reopening.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Monday a ticker tape parade to honor the city’s frontline workers who helped get New Yorkers through the worst of the coronavirus pandemic.
From someone deemed as “essential,” this is a ridiculous idea and a waste of time and money. We’ve done this already, with lame flyovers over cities, and equally vapid gestures meant to make some millionaire doctors feel better about themselves. And I’m not anti-medical personnel – my sister is a nurse – but the fawning is embarrassing.
De Blasio effectively wants to salute medical personnel who did their jobs. What about the truckers who kept the stores open, or the farmers who kept food on our tables?
Last year, New Yorkers applauded from their windows to celebrate essential workers. This year, on July 7, they can celebrate in person.
“The first, true, large parade in New York City will be one to celebrate the heroes of the fight against COVID,” Mayor de Blasio said. “Our first responders, our essential workers, the people who kept us alive, the people who kept the city going no matter what.”
The irony is de Blasio’s city is so rife with crime, most of these “heroes” would be safer in their own homes; especially if they’re Jewish or Asian.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to distract people from his murders and sexual harassment by announcing a New York City skyscraper the size of the Empire State Building. Yeah, that’ll get people excited to return to NYC. Dolt.
Eyebrows have been raised over a proposal for a huge skyscraper in New York City, called Penn 15 and comparable in size to the Empire State Building.
Andrew Cuomo, New York’s governor, hopes to erect Penn 15 as part of a plan to redevelop midtown Manhattan and improve the city’s transport.
So the despicable murderer/sexual harasser wants to erect a building called, effectively, “Penis?“
The 1,200ft building would include 27 landscaped terraces, according to the developer, Vornado Realty Trust, and 57 floors of office space.
Vornado describe Penn 15 as a “super-tall tower that will become the new standard for office design”, featuring “a unique side core design to allow for flexible office configurations and terraces on every fourth floor to maximize access to light and air”.
So let’s recap. The city has defunded the police, attacks on Jews and Asians are through the roof, and crime has never been more rampant. But instead of addressing these life and death questions, the state and the city are planning to build a skyscraper?
The despicable garbage city of New York has decided to eliminate qualified immunity for its police officers, which would mean police officers can arrested and fired if they make a mistake – no matter how small – while performing their duties. This will be the end of policing in New York, and you will see a mass exodus from the department.
The New York City Council moved to end qualified immunity for police officers Thursday, making it the first big city in the nation to do so.
The legal doctrine has for decades protected officers from lawsuits alleging misconduct against those they’re arresting, unless the officer had violated a clearly established constitutional right.
Qualified immunity first came under scrutiny during the racial injustice and police brutality protests that roiled the nation in the light of George Floyd’s death.
Of course, this revolves around Saint George Floyd. He was truly a gentleman and a scholar.
The city council said in a statement the bill would protect New Yorkers against unreasonable search and seizures and against excessive force, in addition to banning qualified immunity. The Big Apple joins two states, Colorado and Connecticut, in curbing the immunity defense.
While I feel for those who live in NYC, I sincerely hope enough people wake up to what’s going on there. de Blasio despises the police and its citizens, and I would like nothing better than to watch NYC’s doom.
New York communist mayor Bill de Blasio has decided he will decriminalize sex work in his city, a move which will likely bring NYC back to the golden age of Mayors Koch and Dinkins.
Queens, New York, District Attorney Melinda Katz moved on Tuesday to dismiss nearly 700 cases against people charged with loitering for the purpose of prostitution.
The move came the same day New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio pushed to decriminalize sex work.
The loitering for the purpose of prostitution law was repealed last month out of concern it too often targeted women, trans people and people of color based solely on their appearance.
At this point, why not make trans people and people of color immune to any crimes? I mean, that’s where this is headed, right?
New York City has been a cesspool since de Blasio took over, and it appears the city will continue swirling the toilet for the foreseeable future. Well done, de Blasio!
While there is a lot of awful going on in New York City, there is also a lot of good going on inside Manhattan. After Governor Cuomo shut down the state, legendary businesses like Strand Bookstore were looking down the barrel of bankruptcy.
Then the citizens of the Big Apple stepped in.
As anyone who’s seen the film You’ve Got Mail knows, independent book sellers took a major hit when megastores moved onto the scene. With growing competition from giant online book sellers like Amazon added in, traditional brick-and-mortar bookstores had to rely on their loyal customer base.
One shining example is New York City’s Strand Bookstore, known worldwide for its “18 miles of books.” A Greenwich Village fixture since 1927, the Strand is the single remaining establishment out of 48 bookstores that once ran the length of 4th Avenue’s famous Book Row.
I’ve actually been to Strand with a friend of mine who worked in NYC. The place is enormous, and it’s Nirvana for bookworms like myself.
Unfortunately, with the Covid-19 pandemic reducing crucial foot-traffic, store proprietor Nancy Bass Wyden, granddaughter of the store’s original owner, was faced with an awful prospect of having to close the Strand’s doors for good.
In a last-ditch effort to save her beloved family business, Bass Wyden reached out to her customer base with a plea for help. “I’m going to pull out all the stops,” she tweeted, “to keep sharing our mutual love of the printed word. But for the first time in the Strand’s 93-year history, we need to mobilize the community to buy from us so we can keep our doors open until there’s a vaccine.”
Wait for it…
The response from the Strand’s loyal clientele came in the form of an avalanche of 25,000 orders over the course of a single weekend that crashed the store’s website and brought in approximately $200,000 in sales. (One enthusiastic Bronx patron ordered 197 books.)
That was followed up by round-the-block lines at the store’s flagship location on Broadway and East 12th Street in lower Manhattan when the store opened.
Amazing. It would have been a travesty if Strand had to shut their doors, both for the book lovers and those lovers of history.
After the collapse of New York City, those trapped behind the wall are feeling rather unsteady. Murders are up, robberies are up, assaults are up, and people are looking for a little extra protection.
Now, thanks to Bond Bodyguards, you can purchase protection for those days you may have to drive through Harlem or the Bronx.
Unsure about my abilities to deliver a damning blow, I found the next best thing: a personal security app, called Bond, that offers trained bodyguards you can book by the half-hour on demand.
It’s body men for the everyman, not just high-profile politicians and celebs. I decided to test it out and hired a guard to meet me outside my apartment, on a busy corner in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. It was like booking an Uber, except in this case, I got a few pre-screening calls from HQ about any known threats (no) and whether I wanted my guy to be armed (yes).
Protecting lovely, frightened New York women? Pfft, where do I sign?
My guard, a 6-foot-1 dude named Ira, had spent most of his career in the NYPD Intelligence Bureau, a job which included protecting presidents, foreign dignitaries, the dalai lama and the pope. So, as the former treasurer of my eighth grade class, I felt reasonably safe.
Ira’s services cost $87.50 for three and a half hours, which was half off thanks to promotional pricing.
I can do Bond one better. I’ll charge $80 for three and a half hours if the client wears something frilly. Obviously that applies only to the women. Well, hot women… with big boobs.
