During a press conference Monday on the launch of new “lifestyle medicine” health clinics in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams called critics of his diet as “food police” and he was not interested in labeling what he does and does not eat.
It sure looks like NYC has gotten themselves another media hog who this time has found food and fitness as the religion de jour for the city. He is just following in the foot steps of Bloomberg and De Blasio. I’ll throw in a couple of flashbacks for a refresher.
It’s almost impossible to comprehend liberals mentality. Why is this mayor not working on pressing issues like crime, and the infrastructure of the city rather to control what people should eat? This issue can be a part of his agenda but to waste public resources on this? Of course, here we go again with school lunches once again. Mooch 2.0.
Over his first few weeks in office, Adams has begun rolling out key programs related to veganism. The city education department launched “Vegan Fridays” last week, and on Monday Adams announced the expansion of a lifestyle medicine program that aims to help people with hypertension, heart disease, diabetes and prediabetes reverse their symptoms through a plant-based diet. He also floated the idea of cooking vegan meals on $10 a day.
“Don’t worry about what’s on Mayor Adams’ plate,” Adams said, after boasting that his “go-to meal” is kidney bean stew. “Put these items on your plate, because I’m living a healthier lifestyle, and I’m encouraging New Yorkers to have as many plant-based meals as possible.” Keep reading
The major kerfuffle at this point is whether he is being truthful about his good choices:
But one mayoral critic said Adams’ flip-flopping on his food choices is evidence of a larger, concerning pattern about truthfulness and transparency.
“I don’t give a damn if he eats fish,” said Bill Neidhardt, co-founder of the progressive political consulting firm Left Flank Strategies. “I care a lot about that he’s a congenital liar that surrounds himself with corrupt people.”
A flashback of how absurd this gets.

So we slow down the elevators, place them in out-of-the-way locations. What could go wrong. Best part? This is the new “Low Income housing” that we are supporting. Oopsie, “Affordable Housing” apparently the new term.
The article stated that the “affordable housing” development features murals and music along the stairway, with elevators located farther away from the front door that are “programmed to move at a slow pace.”
The design of the 124-unit, $37.7 million building not only encourages using the stairs but offers a free gym, an outdoor fitness park with exercise machines and a flower garden for children, adults and senior citizens. The building also has an indoor garage.
Arbor House’s outdoor fitness park sports “a tai chi spinner” for senior citizens who move the wheels with their arms, leg presses and a giant-size chess board with 4-foot tall chess pieces children can pick up and move.
The indoor gym has stationary children’s bikes with video games attached to a screen.
As part of his ongoing campaign to transform New York City into what he calls “Fit City,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promoting “active design” for low-income housing developments being built there, including plans to prompt residents to use the stairs and rooftop gardens for growing “healthy” foods.
In 2010, the Bloomberg Administration and other public and private sector groups issued the “Active Design Guidelines,” which promotes car-free neighborhoods, encourages “physical movement” inside buildings and “improves access to nutritious food.”
In March, the 124-unit, $37.7 million Arbor House was opened in the Bronx.

Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!
City officials have intentionally ground Midtown to a halt with the hidden purpose of making drivers so miserable that they leave their cars at home and turn to mass transit or bicycles, high-level sources told The Post.
Today’s gridlock is the result of an effort by the Bloomberg and de Blasio administrations over more than a decade of redesigning streets and ramping up police efforts, the sources said.
“The traffic is being engineered,” a former top NYPD official told The Post, explaining a long-term plan that began under Mayor Mike Bloomberg and hasn’t slowed with Mayor de Blasio.
“The city streets are being engineered to create traffic congestion, to slow traffic down, to favor bikers and pedestrians,” the former official said.
“There’s a reduction in capacity through the introduction of bike lanes and streets and lanes being closed down.”
The goal of the jammed traffic is to shift as many drivers as possible to public transit or bicycles.
More NY Post with the details of how they are carrying out their plan.
The best of the swamp today.
