De Blasio Gym stays open while NYC remains closed – tweet of the year

 

“I’ll take “Definitions of Elitism” for $1000, Alex”

He wants to stay healthy while others can’t ?

“I’ll never understand how democrat voters have not yet said to themselves once, something ain’t right here.”

A wonderful example how very special the Democrats are,

He needs to stay healthy he says because he has to make decisions……

 

 

Looking good in the swamp today.

De Blasio tells wife Chirlane decide fate of NYC statues of Washington, Jefferson

 

This should work out. Recall just last year Chirlane was determining the look of the city with new statutes. See, they wanted to “equalize” the number of male statutes. Last year the sex of the statute was at issue. This year we have moved on. Anything to destroy our culture. I will include a bit of last years post:

First lady Chirlane McCray will put statues and structures honoring historic figures tainted by slavery — including George Washington and Thomas Jefferson — under the microscope as part of a new “Commission on Racial Justice and Reconciliation,” Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Friday.

Hizzoner’s move comes a day after five city lawmakers — including City Council Speaker Corey Johnson — sent a letter requesting the statue of Jefferson be removed from the council’s chamber, as leaders across the city and nation struggle to respond to weeks of protests over racism that followed the death of George Floyd….

De Blasio said that would include examining City Hall’s statue of Washington and the name of the mayoral residence, Gracie Mansion, which was built and owned by a slave owner, Archibald Gracie.

When pressed by reporters, de Blasio acknowledged he was not sure how far the review should go, but said it was time to examine the “profound contradictions” of the city and nation’s forefathers. More at  New York Post

Flashback… just last year….

NYC Mayor’s wife choses ‘Drag Queens’ for Statues over Saints

The real heroines for de Blasio’s wife are drag queens and abortion rights activists. How many tax payer bucks are going to supposedly ‘equalize’ the number of male statues to female statues in the city? Who is going to create these statues since the mayor’s wife doesn’t have exactly a good track record. De Blasio’s wife and the case of missing 850 million in taxpayers money

Francesca Xavier Cabrini and other female icons were denied honorary statues after a group controlled by First Lady Chirlane McCray tossed out the revered Catholic sister in favor of more women of color and a drag queen-turned-LGBTQ activist.

Cabrini was America’s first saint, a tireless advocate who founded an upstate orphanage, a school for girls in Washington Heights and 67 organizations for the needy in the late 1880s.
But she wasn’t good enough to be named one of New York’s seven most important women.

This despite Cabrini getting the most votes in a poll of New Yorkers on who should be included.

Also denied were poll leaders Emily Warren Roebling, who led the completion of the Brooklyn Bridge, and Manhattan Music School founder Janet Schenck. Instead, they selected abortion rights activist Dr. Helen Rodriguez Trías and drag queens Sylvia Rivera and Marsha P. Johnson, among others, making clear what their criteria were.

Everything swell in the swamp. A-OK.

 

De Blasio appoints wife head of coronavirus racial inequality task force

 

Not going to slow down NYC de Blasio from promoting his wife to another cash cow. Reparations coming my dear, so said the wolf and lots of goodies for her friends. Better yet she is itching for a political office apparently. What could go wrong?

 

The happy couple

Mayor de Blasio isn’t letting the controversy surrounding his wife’s embattled billion-dollar mental-health initiative stop him from appointing her to head a new coronavirus recovery task force.

Citing her work with the ThriveNYC initiative, de Blasio revealed on Sunday that First Lady Chirlane McCray, a rumored contender for Brooklyn borough president, would co-chair a Task Force on Racial Inclusion and Equity as the city plans its eventual reopening.

Chirlane McCray, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s wife, was entrusted in 2015 with running a new initiative in the city called ThriveNYC, a program that attempted to address issues of homelessness, substance use, depression and suicide, all centered around mental health and with a price tag of $250 million per year in tax payer dollars.

Now, four years later, there are serious concerns and calls for official inquiries into the program because no one can determine if it’s actually been successful. What’s more, due to a general opaqueness when it comes to the program’s budget, ThriveNYC has apparently left that nearly $900 million unaccounted for.

 

“Chirlane doesn’t have an impressive track record running task forces or agencies,” said Councilman Joe Borelli (R-SI), who has jousted with City Hall over Thrive’s alleged lack of help for the NYPD amid a spate of suicides by cops.

“This is too serious an issue to use it as profile raiser,” he added, referring to her potential political aspirations.

Councilman Robert Holden said the appointment reeks of political calculation by the mayor to up McCray’s visibility ahead of a widely rumored run for Beep.

“This is political. I wish de Blasio would stop doing this,” said the Queens Democrat. “Let her win the Brooklyn borough presidency on her own merits.

“Her track record on Thrive and the statue commission hasn’t been so good,” he added, referring to another of McCray’s questionable forays into the spotlight.

Chirlane McCray, the mayor’s wife, launched a “She Built NYC” program and invited the public to vote on the names of women they want the city to recognize with a statue. Mother Cabrini got more votes than any other woman , yet McCray’s panel rejected the public’s choice.

The reaction from New Yorkers had been predictably swift and fierce. But apparently it wasn’t fierce enough to slow down de blasio.

All is well in the swamp. That is for sure.

Bloomberg: Complete list of everything he banned in NYC.

 

Bloomberg is one very dangerous fellow. It is amazing that while the democrats continue to gnash their teeth and wring their hands concerning how dangerous and out of control Trump is, much worse are the candidates that they are lining up for the next election.

Here is fodder for anyone who thinks Bloomberg would be less authoritarian than Sanders.  I will add a couple of my past posts that I found were most egregious.

To remember him properly, here’s a list of everything Bloomberg banned during his time in office.

 

* Overruled/appealed ban
** Suggested/voluntary ban
*** Proposed/pending ban

From Gizmodo

Here are some of my oldie moldies that I posted back in the day.

Another Bloomberg special project of Bloomberg was to infiltrate State AG’s offices to additionally move his agenda forward.

Bloomberg – AG Ellison Minnesota corruption scandal

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg and other activist donors are paying for their own attorneys to work inside state attorney general offices and governor’s offices.

How does one “hire” someone if that “someone” is being paid for by someone else? How about “plant” someone inside an office? What is even worse, that plant is inside an Attorney General’s office? That person planting is none other than former Mayor Bloomberg and this is not the first office he has done this with. The purpose? To carry out Bloomberg’s agenda via State AG offices.

Now back to NYC:

Bloomberg: ‘I am going to slow down the elevator’

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, according to a July 31 Newsday report. Check out the full story if you want to be outraged.

“One witty slogan posted on a staircase door reads: ‘If your dog is fat, you’re not getting enough exercise,’” the Newsday article stated.

The Arbor also features a 10,000 square foot, rooftop hydroponic garden where vegetables will be grown, the article stated.

Bloomberg denies food donations to the poor

Everything must be controlled or doled out by the State, peons! Food, soda, using the stairs instead of the elevator, what will Nanny not try to control?  Better to let the poor starve.

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s food police have struck again!

Outlawed are food donations to homeless shelters because the city can’t assess their salt, fat and fiber content, reports CBS 2’s Marcia Kramer.

Glenn Richter arrived at a West Side synagogue on Monday to collect surplus bagels — fresh nutritious bagels — to donate to the poor. However, under a new edict from Bloomberg’s food police he can no longer donate the food to city homeless shelters.

It’s the “no bagels for you” edict.

Bloomberg to restrict Pain Killers at Hospitals

If a non-physician can dictate the amount of pain medication one can receive, just think what we have in store for gun control, Obamacare, any of our freedoms. So I give you Mr. Bloomberg, who heralded the banished Big Gulp, now moving on to pain medication.

“The city hospitals we control,” he said Friday in
response to critics, “so … we’re going to do it and we’re urging all of
the other hospitals to do it, voluntary guidelines.

Much better to ban medicine. Besides, where’s the fun of electing a liberal mayor if you can’t leave sick people writhing in agony? Soda Head

Mayor Michael Bloomberg is a total control freak. NYT reports:

Some of the most common and most powerful prescription painkillers on the market will be restricted sharply in the emergency rooms at New York City’s 11 public hospitals, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg said Thursday in an effort to crack down on what he called a citywide and national epidemic of prescription drug abuse.

Bloomberg and the Feds:10G bounty to ban cigs in our apartment

The city is recruiting foot soldiers for a stealth war against smoking cigarettes in your apartment, planning documents obtained by The Post reveal.

Community groups are being asked to convince tenants and property managers to turn their private buildings into butt-free abodes — the latest front in the Health Department and Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-smoking crusade, according to a recently released “request for proposal” document.

Released by the Health Department’s nonprofit arm, Partnership for a Healthier New York City, the document solicits “neighborhood contractors” to “support and advance” its agenda in four separate areas of concern: tobacco, alcohol, exercise and diet.Full story at NY Post

For their efforts, a community group will collect a $10,000 bounty — paid for out of a Centers for Disease Control grant.
That’s it for today. Other than that all is well in the swamp.

Anarchy comes to NYC subway system

Anarchy comes to New York City. This is how a civilization comes to an end. It is not the biggest story of the day but it portends our future. The anarchists destroy our thin blue by demoralizing and otherwise not supporting their efforts. Consider this an alarming story.

The New York Post reports:

“Police sources claimed city politicians are stoking anti-cop sentiments.

“It’s absolutely disgusting. Our politicians should be ashamed of themselves. We need to get these clowns out of the office and get someone with balls to take back this city. There is going to be a day when this city has a savior and the cops are going to be unleashed and these advocates and protesters are going to have another thing coming,” one particularly angry source fumed.

Cops arrested dozens of protesters as they chanted ‘fare-free NYC’ and ‘f–k the police’ while marching in Upper Manhattan on Friday, but it was not immediately clear whether anyone was collared for the turnstile vandalism.

One of the largest Antifa websites has been calling for people to jump over turnstiles instead of paying their fares on public transportation. They have also issued a call for militants to block trains, busses and break tapper machines.”

The turnstile was repaired by Sunday.

In their post, the website It’s Going Down promoted a “Call For A Day Of Action Against Austerity, The Rising Cost Of Living, And Increasing Transit Costs.”

NYC de Blasio’s panel recommends eliminating all gifted school programs

 

What to do with bright Dick and Jane in the New York school system? They have no right to an enrichment program. After all, they are more likely White. Forget that dear old mom and dad are more likely doing the heavy lifting in paying taxes to support the school system and educating the Johnnies that aren’t so bright. Just who is paying for the school lunch programs and whatever else?

No, in the Socialist perfect world we simply want mediocrity. We want no advancement for the brightest in supporting their creativity. After all they are our future scientists and engineers.  Good work New York. This should bring about a new wave of ‘White Flight” and even worse, poor Black, Hispanics and Asians bright kids will be restricted in getting the opportunity at fulfilling their potential.

No they must be sacrificed on the altar of so called desegregation.

Chalkbeat:

The advisory group tasked with finding new ways to integrate New York City schools is recommending the nation’s largest school system eliminate gifted programs and selective admissions at most city schools.

Those are some of the proposals unveiled Monday night by the School Diversity Advisory Group, made up of academics, students, parents, and advocates appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio. Earlier this year, 62 of the diversity advisory group’s 67 initial recommendations became city policy.

Their latest recommendations take aim at admissions policies that have been seen as critical for getting white, middle-class families who might otherwise leave the city or choose private schools to enroll in public schools.

Any of the proposed changes have the potential to ignite intense pushback. The group recognizes this tension and says they believe their recommendations “thread that needle in a bold and balanced way,” the report’s authors write.

The report calls for the admissions test to be dropped and for programs to be phased out by not enrolling any new students. Instead, the group advises that the city provide local districts with resources to create their own alternatives that avoid the kind of “rigid academic tracking” that can lead to internally segregated schools.

The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal have more on the topic behind a paywall. More at Chalkbeat

A press conference is scheduled for 1pm today. It will be interesting to hear what our Presidential candidate de Blasio has to say on the matter.

Other than that, all is well in the New York swamp.

NYC deliberately gummed up traffic, now will tax the poor devils ‘congestion fees’

 

de Blasio

First NYC gums up the traffic system deliberately a few years ago. Supported by the Obama administration. Not enough pain New Yorkers? Here comes the double whammy. Going to cost you $10 bucks or so to drive into Manhattan. How is all that Progressive stuff working out for you New Yorkers? But anyone paying attention saw this coming.

New York City has intentionally caused the traffic nightmare

If you had any thought that the Progressives were absolutely evil, this should be your confirmation. Back in 2010 we heard what Lahood with the Department of Transportation had in mind for us nationally. Bloomberg and de blasio no doubt got big bucks for New York City in turning the traffic into chaos.

The Setup.  Back in 2010 I wrote a post LaHood: “We are going to “Coerce” people out of their cars 

It’s going to be swell

LaHood signed the new policy directive on March 11. “This is the end of favoring motorized transportation at the expense of non-motorized.”

On May 21, LaHood told reporters at the National Press Club that the “Partnership for Sustainable Communities’ his department had formed with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Housing—sometimes known as the “livability initiative”–was designed to “coerce” people out of their cars.

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has announced that federal transportation policies will no longer favor “motorized” transportation, such as cars and trucks, over “non-motorized” transportation, such as walking and bicycling. he effusively described it as a “sea change” for the United States. Get out your sail.

The Implementation:

Time for some traffic problems in Manhattan!  December 2016

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.

Starting in 2021, drivers will be charged approximately $10 for driving into parts of Manhattan as part of the state’s new budget deal; Laura Ingle has the details.

 

 

Other than this, all is well in the Progressive swamp.

‘Today, I am a Muslim too’ – Welcome to New York City

USA: ‘Today, I am a Muslim too’ – thousands of New Yorkers decry Trump’s travel ban so reads the headline.

The Arab call to prayer in the heart of New York City. One of the loudest spokesperson’s was Sarsour a woman to keep  our eye on. She was front and center with the Women’s March held recently. Anyone who doesn’t denounce her is questionable in my book. She is out there supporting Sharia law. Perhaps Planned Parenthood could include an educational program concerning what Sharia law entails for women while they are infiltrating our schools. Throw in Chelsea Clinton to the mix.

Muslims and Muslim sympathizers protested Donald Trump today in New York’s Times Square. Chelsea Clinton boasted about being there with her daughter, Charlotte. Hamas darling, Linda Sarsour was also there spreading hysteria and propaganda about President Donald Trump.

In Sarsour’s speech, she reminded people about the executive order that Democratic President FDR passed which put Japanese Americans in internment camps implying that Muslims and minorities could possibly suffer the same fate under a Trump presidency.

There was also a loud Arab call to prayer during this protest in NYC. In an Islamic call to prayer (adhan), the Muslim is shouting Allahu Akbar which translates to ‘God is greater’ or ‘God is greatest’. They mean that their ‘god’ is greater than your God and or the government. This is a blatant act of Islamic supremacy.

New York City has intentionally caused the traffic nightmare

This makes “Bridgegate” small potatoes in New Jersey. There has been the full throttle attempt to snarl traffic in New York City for years we now learn. If you had any thought that the Progressives were absolutely evil, this should be your confirmation. Back in 2010 we heard what Lahood with the Department of Transportation had in mind for us nationally. Bloomberg and deblasio no doubt got big bucks for New York City in turning the traffic into chaos. And they complain about Trump causing traffic problems?
