Governor “Fredo” Cuomo…, I mean Governor Andrew Cuomo, of New York, would rather see the body count rise than a COVID vaccine under President Trump.

“The good news is the Pfizer tests look good and we’ll have a vaccine shortly. The bad news is that it’s about two months before Joe Biden takes over and that means this administration is going to be implementing a vaccine plan,” Cuomo told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America.

According to the New York Post Editorial Board, ‘“We can’t let this vaccine plan go forward the way Trump is planning it,’ Cuomo said. ‘We need to fix it or stop it before it does damage.’”

“Damage?”

What kind of “damage?”  

“Cuomo says Trump vaccination plan is ‘flawed,’ and ‘learns nothing from the past.”

Okay, Fredo…, I doubt you have any understanding of The President’s plan, in this regard.

And, what does “learns nothing from the past” mean?

The “past” what?

Your whole perspective and intent is the only thing that’s “flawed” here, Fredo!    

“It’s probably the lowest thing Governor Andrew Cuomo has ever done, and that’s saying something.”

Really, it’s not.

It’s not even close…, but go on.

“On Monday morning, when everyone else was celebrating the spectacular news that Pfizer’s vaccine for COVID-19 looks 90 percent effective, Cuomo, as is typical, reverted to politics.”

“First, he let people die in nursing homes because of his ineptitude.”

Excuse me, but it wasn’t “ineptitude.”

It was by design.

It was imperative to get the COVID-19 death numbers elevated at the time to add to their negative narrative regarding The President’s response to the China virus.

We were constantly being reminded how many people had died from the virus, when in reality the real number was only a fraction of the number we were constantly bombarded with.

How many times during the vice-presidential debate did “cackling Kamala” feel it was necessary to remind us that “over 200,000 people have died from the virus?”

Five times?

Ten times?

More?

In any regard, it was obvious that this was a talking point the democrats valued quite highly…, whether it was really accurate or not.   

“Now Cuomo wants the body count to keep climbing because God forbid President Trump oversees a vaccine effort.”

Actually, it has to do with governmental control now, and not President Trump any longer.

‘“What on earth is Governor Cuomo talking about?’ Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) rightly said in a statement. ‘This is great news and everyone — Republicans and Democrats and apolitical folks — should all be jointly thrilled about the possibility of an effective vaccine.’”

The first mistake you’re making Senator Sasse is that you’re assuming we’re talking about a normal human being here…, when we’re not.  We’re talking about a deranged, power hungry, psycho.

‘“After this nasty virus has killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and put millions out of work, it is beyond disgusting that Governor Cuomo would use a glimmer of hope for another worn-out ‘Trump is bad’ talking point. When we get a vaccine, we’re going to need all hands-on deck distributing it as fast as possible — shamelessly politicizing this is dangerous and stupid.’”

I’d lean more towards evil, but, yes, “stupid” and “dangerous” as well.   

“Thank goodness it’s not up to Cuomo about how the nation proceeds. He messed up in New York, he can’t be allowed to fail nationally. Hopefully this puts to rest any idea of Cuomo serving in a Joe Biden cabinet — or even being governor again.”

Au contraire mon ami! 

On the contrary my friends!   

As far as the democrats are concerned, these comments put him at the front of the list…, on both accounts!

What ever happened to “three strikes and ‘yer’ out!”

Somewhere along the line, that concept has apparently been expanded a bit…, to 100, and still counting!

Over 100!

Are you kidding me?!

How is a person who has been “arrested over 100 times” still seeing the light of day…, much less walking around free as a bird and harming other people?

aarrest 4

And this guy looks way too young to have already been arrested over 100 times.

I wonder what the record for times being arrested is?

I’m almost, no, I am, afraid to ask.

I would think this guy has a real shot at it before he’s through though…, whatever it is.

According to Reuven Fenton, Larry Celona and Craig McCarthy for The New York Post, “A career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name was busted for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant — leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood.”

aarrest 7

“The injured elder, a Bronx native named Geraldine, spoke to The Post on Tuesday after cops arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, and charged him with attacking her.”

https://youtu.be/6jfN1kXPiak

‘“I thought a brick hit me or something hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant,’ Geraldine, who asked that her last name be withheld for safety reasons, said of the attack. ‘Blood was coming out, not spurting blood, but blood was dripping.’”

“Geraldine, who has lived in Manhattan for more than 50 years, was on her way to Duane Reade [a chain of pharmacy and convenience stores in New York City, owned by Walgreens] when Brimmage allegedly shoved her to the ground near Third Avenue and East 16th Street in Gramercy Park at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday.”

“She slammed against the fire hydrant and lay on the ground until a passerby called 911 and medics rushed her to nearby Beth Israel Hospital.”

“The former teacher, who never married but is dating an 89-year-old lawyer, said her physical wounds were relatively minor and have since healed — but the mental toll has been much more severe.”

‘“Mostly I’m shaken. My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant — or where he hit me, I don’t know,’ she said.”

‘“Mainly it’s psychological — just the fear of going out on the street,’ she added.”

‘“This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone. So, my super’s trying to find somebody who will walk me to a park nearby or to the supermarket, that kind of thing. So that’s the problem.’”

aarrest 1

“Brimmage was busted by cops Tuesday and charged with assault after investigators recognized him from video footage of the attack, authorities said.”

Oh, so, he was arrested…, again.

Why does this not make me feel much better?

“The frequent offender has now been arrested 103 times since 2005, sources said.”

“The creep was convicted of sexual misconduct in 2012, then arrested for two sex offenses in 2014, police sources said.”

“Creep?”

You better watch it, calling this guy a “creep.”

Soon you’ll have every liberal in New York taking offense at that language, and lecturing us all about what a fine, upstanding, young man this punk is.

“In May of that year, he was busted for exposing and fondling himself on an East Harlem street, the sources said.”

ahealth 15

“In 2017, he failed to notify authorities that he changed his address and had to register as a sex offender, state records show.”

“At the time of Friday’s attack, Brimmage had three open criminal cases in the city, according to court records.”

“Three open criminal cases,” huh?

I guess they don’t start holding you in custody until you’ve been arrested over 150 times in New York City!

I can’t believe I was actually considering visiting New York at one point in my life.

I would never step foot in The People’s Republic of New York City now or in the future.

aarrest 10

What a disgraceful excuse for an American city New York has become.  I’m actually ashamed to have to claim it as part of the country I live in.

“He was arrested Feb. 17 for a misdemeanor assault and harassment charge for an incident that happened in The Bronx a week earlier, according to records. He was released without bail in the case.”

No, of course, they don’t want to hinder his attempt at the record!

“He was busted in the borough again March 5 and slapped with trespassing summons, according to court records.”

“And most recently, he was arrested March 9 in Manhattan and hit with criminal possession of a controlled substance, assault and attempted assault charges.”

And please consider that these 100+ arrests are only the times this guy was caught!

How many thousands of times has this poor excuse for a human being broken the law and didn’t get arrested?

It’s just mind-boggling.

It is my belief that the City of New York should be held criminally and financially responsible for anything these habitual criminals are allowed to perpetrate on the unsuspecting, law-abiding, citizens in the city.

New York City has passed the “reasonable” threshold, in this case, a long, long time ago.

Habitual criminals, like this scumbag, should not be allowed to continually prey on the civilized people who are forced to share the city with him.

Stupid is as stupid does…

… but these liberals are dangerous!

adefund 18

There is a growing movement across the US to defund many major metropolitan police departments and get rid of the police, as we know them, altogether.

adefund 1

I guess these big, liberal, cities can do what they want.  I just thank God I don’t live in one of these cities!

These liberals have literally lost their minds.

adefund 12

Who exactly is going to live and reside in these “policeless” cities?

What businesses are going to feel safe operating there?

What about utility services, as well as fire departments and emergency medical services?

What hospitals are going to want to operate in that type of environment?

What law-abiding and decent people are going to want to live in these places with their families?

Who is going to want to risk their lives visiting these places anymore?

adefund 15

The criminal elements in all of these cities must be laughing their a$$es off at these liberal idiots and licking their chops in anticipation of a cop-free environment.

I predict that these major, liberal, cities will become wastelands within a year if they manage to achieve their “policeless” goals.

Have you seen the movie “Escape from New York?”  Well, if you want to see a preview of life in New York City without a police force, watch it.

adefund 10

According to Sam Levin, in Los Angeles, for “The Guardian,” Activists say the way to stop police brutality and killings is to cut law enforcement budgets and reinvest in services.”

“The movement to defund the police is gaining significant support across America, including from elected leaders, as protests over the killing of George Floyd sweep the nation.”

adefund 2

“For years, activists have pushed US cities and states to cut law enforcement budgets amid a dramatic rise in spending on police and prisons while funding for vital social services has shrunk or disappeared altogether.”

“Government officials have long dismissed the idea as a leftist fantasy, but the recent unrest and massive budget shortfalls from the Covid-19 crisis appear to have inspired more mainstream recognition of the central arguments behind defunding.”

“A leftist fantasy?”

More like a social nightmare.

adefund 16

‘“To see legislators who aren’t even necessarily on the left supporting at least a significant decrease in New York police department [NYPD] funding is really very encouraging,’ Julia Salazar, a New York state senator and Democratic socialist, told the Guardian on Tuesday. ‘It feels a little bit surreal.’”

adefund 19

Oh, it’s surreal alright!

I’m also guessing that Ms. Salazar won’t actually be living in these “policeless” areas.

“Floyd’s death on camera in Minneapolis, advocates say, was a powerful demonstration that police reform efforts of the last half-decade have failed to stop racist policing and killings.”

I’m not sure you can lump all police problems into one big racial pile, Mr. Levin.

More than twice the number of whites have died in police custody as opposed to blacks, and many black officers have been involved with these deaths as well.

I’m sure race comes into play occasionally, but for the most part we’re just dealing with a handful of inept and/or uncaring cops who should really be in another line of work.

“Meanwhile, the striking visuals of enormous, militarized and at times violent police forces responding to peaceful protests have led some politicians to question whether police really need this much money and firepower.”

“Violent police forces responding to peaceful protesters?”

Excuse me, Mr. Levin, but are you taking some type of hallucinogenic medication, or are you just being intentionally disingenuous?

I’m guessing the latter.

How many protesters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many looters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many criminal vandals and rioters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, vandals and rioters have been killed by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, and vandals have been injured in some way by the police in response to their actions?

There have undeniably been some…, and probably rightly so.

Overall, I feel the police forces across our nation have shown incredible restraint, unbelievable restraint, when dealing with all of these protesters, looters and rioters.

Now…,

How many cops have been shot during these “protests?”

Over a dozen, and counting.

How many cops have been injured in some way during these “protests?”

Easily in the hundreds, and counting.

If you’d like to see the police officers who have died in the line of duty, just doing their jobs, I’d like to invite you to visit the Ofice Down Memorial Page at https://odmp.org

“Community groups advocating for defunding have put forward differing strategies, some merely opposing police budget increases, others advocating mass reductions, and some fighting for full defunding as a step toward abolishing police forces. Some initiatives are tied to the fight to close prisons. All are pushing for a reinvestment of those dollars in services.”

Abolishing police forces and closing prisons.

Who are running these community groups?

The Joker?

The Penguin?

Lex Luthor?

The Riddler?

I mean, really!

adefund 14

“Amid the protests, some local leaders with budgeting powers have started proposing modest cuts to policing. The most substantial change so far, has come in Minneapolis where the school board on Tuesday voted to end its contract with the police department. The University of Minnesota has also pledged to stop working with police.”

‘“People have been fighting for years to get cops out of schools, and now it’s happening overnight,’ said Tony Williams, a member of MPD150, an abolition group whose literature on building a ‘police-free future’ has spread on social media in recent days. One elected Minneapolis ward member said this week that the city’s police department was ‘irredeemably beyond reform,’ the kind of remark that would until recently have been unthinkable to organizers.”

I don’t believe that the people and students of Columbine High School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, or Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were too upset about the cops being in their schools.

Just sayin’.

adefund 22“Kelly Lytle Hernandez, a UCLA historian and recent MacArthur recipient, said this could be a pivotal moment for the US: ‘We’ve created over the last 30 to 40 years a sense that our safety and wellbeing always comes from investing more and more in police.’”

Well, Miss MacArthur award recipient (let’s just say you won’t see any conservatives winning that award), how else would you recommend spending money to promote safety in our big cities?

I do agree with you, however, that this is “a pivotal moment” for many of our big cities.

Either they can choose to use common sense when approaching these problems, or they can go off the deep end, following these know-nothing, anti-American, liberal pied pipers.

I’m guessing that common sense will not prevail amongst these idiots and liberal provocateurs.

‘“This week, it seems there is increasing recognition of this failure,’ she said, adding, ‘Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation that I’m hoping you’re seeing broad-based support for on the streets today.’”

Well, there you have it.

“Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation.”

Just the first step.

And the “historical transformation” involves the abandoning of our American values and the surrendering of our freedom as we devolve towards a socialistic/communistic/globalistic mess.

Tyler Olson of Fox News adds that, “Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to ‘dismantle’ the police department and replace it with ‘a transformative new model for public safety.’”

Ha!

I’m anxious to see what these daring young fascists have in mind.

“Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city’s Ward 5, explicitly led calls to ‘dramatically rethink’ how the city keeps its people safe.”

adefund 9

‘“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ he tweeted. ‘And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response.’”

I’m sure their “rethinking” will include Sharia Law in there somewhere, based on his family’s Muslim background.

“His call was echoed by Lisa Bender, the president of the city council.”

The president of the city council!

adefund 21

‘“Yes,’ she said in response to Ellison. ‘We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.’”

“That was not the first time Bender had addressed calls to ‘dismantle’ the city’s police force this week, however. On Wednesday she posted a thread about how a ‘white person’ should think about dismantling the police.”

I honestly don’t think you’ll have many white people left in your city by that time, but let’s hear it anyway, Ms. Bender.

“If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?  I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.”

I’m really not sure what to say about this racist individual or her confused train of thought.

I always wonder, “how do all of these idiots get elected?

“According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.”

Oh, ya…, that’s going to work out real well!

It’s confirmed.  These liberals HAVE all lost their minds…, at least what little minds they had.

New York City is an absolute disgrace.

The song about New York City goes, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.”

The question is, who really wants to “make it there” anymore?

A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal, socialist, fools, tends to encourage all of those with any brains to migrate elsewhere.

acops 11

Besides all of the ill-conceived, liberal, social, educational and administrative policies…, New York City residents pay dearly for the privilege of living there.

New Yorkers, of course, start out by paying federal income tax, most in the 12% to 22% range, or an average of 17%.

Next, we go to the state income tax.  Most pay in the 6.2% to 6.5%, or an average of 6.35%.

Then we have New York City income tax, which only a few cities in America have.  The New York City income tax rate ranges from 3.1% to 3.9%, or an average of 3.5%.

So, that give us a combined average income tax rate of 26.85%.

Keep in mind that states like Texas and Florida have NO state or local income taxes!

So, we’re at 26.85% so far.

But let’s not forget property tax!

The property tax rate is 20.4%!  And even if you’re not a property owner, you are indirectly paying that rate through your rent for the property owner.

And last, but not least, we have the sales tax.

New York City has a sales tax of 8.875%!

Now that’s a lot of tax!

AND YET, NEW YORK STATE AND NEW YORK CITY ARE TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DEBT!

The actual debt for New York City is $91.56 billion!

New York State’s debt is close to $150 billion!

Unbelievable.

Like I SAID EARLIER…, A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal fools.

acops 13

And now they (“they” meaning the New York State liberals, the New York City liberals, and the federal House and Senate democrats) want all of the rest of us to bail out these liberal cesspools via disguised money in the next coronavirus relief bill.

These democrat politicians just have no shame.

Anyway, so, what do the people of New York City get for all of that tax money?

They get a mayor, Bill de Blasio, who is a hot mess, and his administration which is one big hot mess as well.

acops 6

The latest example of disgusting liberal behavior was exhibited by the New York City Health Commissioner, Dr. Oxiris Barbot.

acops 5

And what a gem she is!

According to Fox News, via a story originally published in the New York Post, “The New York police sergeants union described city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot as a ‘b—-‘ Wednesday in response to revelations that she told an NYPD official she didn’t give ‘two rats a$$es’ about cops getting safety masks.”

Oh, how wonderful!

This is coming from a person who was handpicked by Mayor de Blasio, to be the city’s health commissioner…, offering her advice and wisdom to the 8.4 million people who live in New York City.

She obviously represents the de Blasio administration’s feelings towards police officers, and the NYPD overall, quite well.

‘“Truth is this b—- has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under de Blasio since he became Mayor,’ the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) tweeted in response to The Post’s exclusive story revealing Barbot’s decision.”

“The health commissioner said in a mid-March phone conversation with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, ‘I don’t give two rats’ a$$es about your cops,’ in response to the mask request, sources said.”

‘“I need them for others,’ Barbot said.”

In other words, Cops are expendable and are dead last on her list of considerations.

“Instead of the 500,000 masks Monahan sought to help protect his force, Barbot said she could only cough up 50,000, according to sources.”

“Shortly after the SBA’s tweet, the union’s president, Edward Mullins, sent a statement calling for Barbot’s ouster.”

Your disdain for New York’s finest is obvious Dr. Barbot.

Your lack of knowledge pertaining to the coronavirus is quite obvious as well.

At least the rest of us can all take comfort in knowing you live in the city you deserve.

“Which way did he go, George…, which way did he go?!”

This phrase is from a 1940 Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies short film titled “Of Fox and Hounds.”

The cartoon focuses on a sly fox, George, and a lovable but dimwitted hound, Willoughby, who repeatedly asks George where the fox went, never suspecting that his “friend” George is the fox.

According to Julia Marsh and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon of The New York Post, “It is ‘unconscionable’ that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.”

ageorge 2

ageorge 7

For my purposes here, De Blasio would be Willoughby, the lovable but dimwitted hound, minus the lovable part, and the released inmates would be represented by, George, the sly fox.

ageorge 1

‘“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,’ the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.”

This article tells you all you need to know about the naive and clueless liberal mindset.

AGEORGE 12

“De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was ‘buckling down’ on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.”

“The number of re-offenders remains relatively small,” Mr. Mayor?

The number should be really small…, LIKE ZERO!

Everything else over zero is on you at this point.

‘“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible. And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing,’” de Blasio added.

Just for the record, “More than 1,400 city inmates have been granted early releases due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus.”

ageorge 9

The Post reported Sunday that, “At least 50 of the newly released Rikers Island prisoners were rearrested for new crimes in recent weeks — and in some cases were cut loose again.”

Wait, what?!

ageorge 3

THEY WERE CUT LOOSE AGAIN?!!!!!!!!!!

The level of irresponsibility and idiocy displayed here, by de Blasio and other New York City officials, is truly impressive!

“The Legal Aid Society, Bronx Defenders and other legal defense groups have been petitioning courts since the outbreak of the deadly global pandemic, arguing that inmates, particularly those who are older or have medical conditions, are more vulnerable to the deadly bug within the confines of city jails.”

What “defense groups” are petitioning the courts regarding the vulnerability of law-abiding citizens who will now be forced to deal with over a thousand convicted criminals being released into their midst?

The survivability rate for the coronavirus is 98.5%

The “survivability” rate of being affected by these criminals committing another crime is only 96.5%.

And the Mayor’s “virus of ignorance” is completely preventable!

Just sayin’.

The democrats are dealt some heat by Hall of Fame pitcher Goose Gossage!

As a Milwaukee Brewers fan, I can remember back to the days when the Brewers would be playing the Yankees and their “closer,” Goose Gossage, would be called in from their bullpen to finish us off.

Gossage would calmly stroll to the pitcher’s mound to the tune, “Bad to the Bone,” by George Thorogood and the Destroyers, and the crowd chanting “Goose, Goose, Goose.”

He was “bad to the bone,” and he normally would finish us off in short order.

agoose 3

agoose 2

Well, he’s retired from baseball now, but he’s still firing fastballs of the truth at a new team…, The Washington Liberals!”

Ryan Gaydos of Fox News reports that, “[Hall of Fame closer Goose] Gossage, who has gotten political over the last few years and has been an outspoken supporter of Trump, told NJ.com he wants to see some of the top Democrats go to jail.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

‘“I’m hoping and I’m praying that these (expletive) go off the cliff to never be heard from again,’ Gossage said. ‘All of them! Nancy Pelosi and that lying Chuck Schumer. And then (expletive) Robert Mueller and the (expletive) Mueller Report, and the FBI … I hope some of them go to jail!’”

agoose 6

agoose 7

It seems that Goose is venting his frustration regarding our apparent two-tiered justice system, which sees liberal politicians and various members of “the swamp” get away with just about anything, while the rest of us are held to the letter of the law.

“Gossage, who reminisced with the newspaper about the life of Hank Steinbrenner, said it’s Trump who can be the only person to replace Steinbrenner as owner of the Yankees. He also said he was an unabashed Trump supporter.”

“The former Yankees pitcher told NJ.com he felt Trump was being unfairly criticized for how he handled the coronavirus pandemic.”

agoose 8

That’s true, Goose, but it shouldn’t be of any surprise.

President Trump is unfairly criticized on a daily basis, for whatever he does, by the democrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

‘“It’s just lies, lies, BS, BS,’ he said. ‘They don’t even respect the election. The majority of liberals still think the Russians got him in office. They all want him out of power.’”

“He added that he believes Democrats want the economy to be in the gutter in order for Joe Biden to claim the White House in November.”

agoose 9

‘“I cannot even fathom that they would go to this length, but this is the last straw,’ Gossage said. ‘Where would you attack Trump? In the economy. That’s all they have. And let me tell you something, people are (expletive) dying and the liberals could give a rat’s a-s.’”

At this point, Goose, there isn’t any length the democrats won’t go to.

‘“Our civil liberties are under siege. And Biden, he can’t put two (expletive) sentences together!’”

“Gossage said he was a Democrat who voted for former President Barack Obama and that Trump ‘earned’ his vote during the 2016 election.”

“Gossage [who] pitched from 1972 to 1994…, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008. He was a World Series champion in 1978 with the Yankees, was a nine-time All-Star and finished in the top five in Cy Young voting four times.”

Goose’s new theme song should be “Sad but true,” by Metallica!

I guess New York City is only a “sanctuary city” for people who are in the country illegally…, not for your old run of the mill, actual American citizen.

anyc 1

Only democrats could come up with this lame kind of plan…, and then expect to keep it secret somehow.

anyc 10

In case you didn’t notice, the word “secret” is starting to become synonymous with the democrats.

They’ve got this “secret” plan…, and they’re conducting these “secret” hearings…, and they have “secret” answers to “secret” questions about these “secret’ individuals.

“Secret” “impeachment hearings and interviews with “secret” questions and “secret” answers (unless they are potentially damaging to President Trump, in which case they are leaked to the “liberal propaganda media”), and “secret” accusers and whistleblowers.

And, of course, the democrats are assisted with this “propaganda by omission” by their friends the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” who look the other away regarding their fascist behavior.

Thankfully, not all news media is created in the image of The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS or NBC.

Sara Dorn of The New York Post reports that, “NYC homeless initiative sends people across the US — without telling receiving cities.  Families who once lived in NYC shelters were sent to 32 states and Puerto Rico.  New York City [is] generously sharing its homeless crisis with every corner of America.”

“From the tropical shores of Honolulu and Puerto Rico, to the badlands of Utah and backwaters of Louisiana, the Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country with a full year of rent in their pockets as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ‘Special One-Time Assistance Program [SOTA].’ Usually, the receiving city knows nothing about it.”

“The Big Apple has sent local homeless families to 373 cities across the country!”

“373 cities!”

Well, isn’t that special?!

That’s a lot of nerve, NYC…, secretly shipping your “problems” out of town to other unsuspecting cities.

anyc 3

Mayor Bill de Bozio and the rest of the “holier than thou” New York liberals have apparently felt the need to “punt” their problems to other states they consider “low rent…,” and then de Bozio has the nerve to complain about illegal immigrants, who he supposedly supports, being shipped to NYC from our southern border.

I guess he supports the concept…, as long as the illegals go to someone else’s city.

anyc 8

“[New York] City taxpayers have spent $89 million on rent alone since the program’s August 2017 inception to export 5,074 homeless families — 12,482 individuals — to places as close as Newark and as far as the South Pacific, according to Department of Homeless Services (DHS…, not to be confused with The Department of Homeland Security) data obtained by The Post.  Families who once lived in city shelters decamped [departed suddenly or secretly] to 32 states and Puerto Rico.”

Ha!  What liberal genius took the time to come up with the word “decamped?”

These people are just soooo deceiving and soooo disingenuous.

anyc 6

This has been going on for over two years, and it’s just coming out now.

Like I said before, “propaganda by omission.”  “If we don’t report about it, it isn’t happening.”

“The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent.”

If it’s taxpayer funded isn’t it a public record?  Secret, secret, secret.

Just sayin’.

“DHS defends the stratospheric costs, saying it actually saves the city on shelter funding — which amounts to about $41,000 annually per family, as compared to the average yearly rent of $17,563 to house families elsewhere.”

anyc 2

“But critics say the ‘stop-gap solution’ has been fraught with problems, and ultimately has failed to help curb the city’s homelessness.”

You don’t say?!

You mean to say we have a democrat program here that doesn’t work?

Join the list of sad democrat programs that don’t work, and that haven’t worked, SOTA!

anyc 7

“Not only are officials in towns where the city’s homeless land up in arms, but hundreds of the homeless families are returning to the five boroughs — and some are even suing NYC over being abandoned in barely livable conditions. Multiple outside agencies and organizations have opened investigations into SOTA.”

“Homeless individuals and families are eligible for SOTA if they can prove they have been in a New York City shelter for at least 90 days and that their household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent. DHS would not expand on eligibility rules.”

Wait.

So let me get this straight.

You can qualify for this program if your “household income is no more than twice what it owes in rent?”

Wouldn’t that be like many people and many families across America?

I mean, most people are not rich or anywhere close to it.

Maybe New York is doing these people a favor by shipping them out of la la land and out into the real world?

But that’s beside the point.

“Some pols [politicians] in towns taking in NYC refugees were shocked by the news.”

‘“So in other words, if someone is in a shelter, y’all will give them money to go somewhere else if they have been there for 90 days? And some of those people have been sent to Metairie [part of the New Orleans metropolitan area]?’ said Michael Yenni, president of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, when The Post told him the community is among the SOTA destinations.”

‘“I’m not in Mayor Bill de Blasio’s shoes.  I don’t sit behind his desk, and I never will, but it’s certainly interesting. You have shocked me down here in beautiful southeast Louisiana.’”

“The mayor of Willacoochee, Georgia, was similarly stunned. ‘I’m not familiar with none of that,’ Samuel Newson said.”

“The mayor of Harrisville, Utah — who was so baffled to receive a call from The Post that she questioned if the reporter had the wrong number — asked if SOTA recipients are connected to social services in the towns where they move.”

‘“Are they just cutting them loose and saying, “Here you go?” Or are they making sure they don’t find themselves in the same situation a year later?’ Michelle Tait asked.”

“Pols [politicians] in New Jersey, where 2,226 SOTA families have moved, say the answer to Tait’s latter question is ‘No.’”

“Mayor Tony Vauss of Irvington [New Jersey], the destination for 278 SOTA families, said he is ‘highly disturbed by the lack of communication from New York City and the lack of oversight of this program by the city.  ‘SOTA recipients are the population of citizens who require ongoing social services and resources … Therefore, once SOTA ceases funding, program recipients end up using our state and local resources to maintain themselves.’”

“DHS spokesman Isaac McGinn said the city ‘remains committed to using every tool at our disposal to help these families and individuals find stability in the ways that work for them.  Any American, including any New Yorker experiencing homelessness, has the right to seek housing where they can afford it and employment where they can find it.’”

Again…, these people are just soooo manipulative, so deceptive, and soooo disingenuous.

The New York Times chose to begrudgingly report about this program with this liberally spun headline: “City Aids Homeless With One-Way Tickets Home.”

Ha!

Yes…, and NYC baked each one of them an apple pie as a going away present before they unceremoniously gave them their one-way ticket out of town.

I’m sure Mayor de Bozio will end up winning some kind of liberal reward for this program now that they were forced to acknowledge it.

anyc 5

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all just ship our problems somewhere else for someone else to deal with?

Apparently that’s only an option for the liberal elites who know so much better than the rest of us uneducated “deplorables.”

The treatment these New York Police Officers were forced to endure is absolutely sickening.

After watching the video of these poor officers being humiliated, as they were just doing their job, brings a few words to mind:

UNCIVILIZED,

ANIMALISTIC,

DISGRACEFUL,

NAUSEATING,

UNIMAGINABLE,

REPREHENSIBLE,

INEXCUSABLE,

… just for starters.

Are you getting the impression I feel these (I’m not even going to go as far as to call them “people”) animals should be euthanized?

Good…, then I’m getting my point across clearly.

If you haven’t seen the video, what we have here is two New York Police Department (NYPD) officers making an arrest of an individual in the area known as Harlem in New York City.

nypd3

In the process of doing their job, they are continuously splashed with water by onlookers, until finally one sub-human actually dumps a whole bucket of water over the head of one of the officers.  The other officer gets water thrown at him with a bucket and then the bucket is thrown at the officer, striking him in the head.

nypd 1

nypd 7

nypd 4

I’m not sure where these officers found the self-control to seemingly ignore and just walk away from this situation…, but they are bigger men than me apparently.

I know these officers have some level of pride and honor, however, and you can’t expect these individuals to put up with this type of absolute humiliation and utter disrespect for long.

According to Thomas Tracey, Rocco Parascandola and John Annese of The New York Daily News, ‘“If these kids [the ones throwing the water, and I’m not sure I’d call them “kids’] were injured when they were being arrested, then (Internal Affairs) would have to be involved,’ an NYPD lieutenant said. ‘They probably weighed the risk and thought it was too much.’”

In other words, the cops don’t feel that the department or city hall has their backs.

‘“But my dad was a cop, and in my father’s day all of these guys would have been in the hospital,’ the lieutenant said. ‘The job’s got these cops scared to take action.’”

How long are people going to be willing to do this job?

Have these liberal politicians turned this into a job that just can’t be done?

How much money do you have to earn to warrant putting up with crap from both sides…, the criminals and the liberal politicians?

And don’t think there isn’t a racial aspect to this as well.

These African-Americans would not have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

Again…, these African-Americans WOULD NOT have dumped water over a Black officer’s head.

If anyone out there disagrees with that statement, then please, I’d like to hear from you.  Please message me and convince otherwise.

It really hurts me to even use the word “American” in the same breath when referring to these missing links.

“America,” as we know it, is quickly becoming divided between the big cities and the rest of us.

nypd 8

When the rest of us see things like this incident, we just can’t believe our eyes.

We wonder “who are these ‘people,’” and where did they come from?

nypd 2

This type of disrespect towards officers of the law is just inconceivable to the rest of the country.

Liberals are quick to label these types of feelings as racist…, but they’re honestly not…, these are reactions to actions and behaviors…, not skin color.

Was John F. Kennedy Jr. a U.S. Senate frontrunner before his “suspicious” plane crash in 1999?

First of all, it’s hard to believe that was 20 years ago already!

Then getting back to the question…, the answer is yes…, and no.

jfkjr 6

No…, because JFK Jr. had not “officially” declared himself a candidate in New York’s U.S. Senate race before dying in the July 1999 plane crash.

Yes…, because JFK Jr. was extremely well known and extremely popular, and all he would have had to have done was announce his candidacy and the senate seat would have been his.

jfkjr 2

It would not have been long after that that he would have been considered a front runner to be president.

As with the Senate, if he had then decided to run for president he would have been president.

jfkjr 3

This is precisely the trajectory that Hillary Clinton was hoping to take…, except her popularity was nowhere near JFK Jr.’s.  And her timetable was a lot shorter as well.

First lady and Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton gestures to reporters at the end of a press conf..

JFK Jr. was potentially the only stumbling block in her political future.

I’m not saying anything new here…, I’m just saying it.

JFK Jr.’s death in that plane crash was just very advantageous for Hillary Clinton…, that’s all.

Very advantageous.

Very, very, very advantageous.

Did I mention that it was very politically advantageous for Hillary Clinton that John F. Kennedy Jr. died in that plane crash in 1999?

According to Bethania Palma on Snopes.com, “John F. Kennedy Jr. was a popular public figure from his childhood until he died in a plane crash at the age of 38 in 1999.

While there is never a shortage of conspiracy theories surrounding the Kennedys, or for that matter, the Clintons, an unfounded rumor circulating in political circles during the 2016 presidential election claimed that John-John was on the cusp of a successful U.S. Senate bid until Hillary Clinton threw her hat in the ring — with the insinuation that Kennedy was killed to clear the way for her candidacy.”

“Earlier this year, in one of the best-kept secrets in state politics, Kennedy considered seeking the seat of retiring Sen. Daniel Moynihan in 2000, friends confirmed.”

“The friend who expected Kennedy to seek office in the ‘foreseeable future’ also told of speaking with Kennedy earlier this year about the Moynihan seat. ‘I asked him was he casually thinking about it, or was he serious. He sort of said, “I’m not sure. Let me think about it.”’”

“But the second friend called Kennedy’s interest ‘pretty serious,’ adding: ‘I think he was intrigued by the idea … Would he have decided in the end to go for it? I don’t know. But he was clearly thinking about it.’”

“Clinton won the Senate election on 7 November 2000, beating Republican Rick Lazio more than a year after Kennedy Jr. was killed along with his wife, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, 33, and his sister-in-law, Lauren G. Bessette, 34, in the crash of the single-engine plane he was flying to Martha’s Vineyard.”

So what exactly was determined about this crash?

“The implication that the Clintons had somehow engineered the death of Kennedy Jr. to prevent him from challenging her in her first bid for elective office is contradicted by the National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) report on the accident, which assigned the probable cause to pilot error.”

“The probable cause of the accident, as stated in the accident report, is:

The pilot’s failure to maintain control of the airplane during a descent over water at night, which was a result of spatial disorientation.  Factors in the accident were haze and the dark night.

‘There was nothing suspicious about the circumstances of the crash,’ this article’s author surmises.”

The fact that the report says “There was nothing suspicious about the circumstances of the crash,” is suspicious.

Well, isn’t it?

jfkjr 5

“But, in an article from the New York Times, written by Mike Allen, ‘Investigators said Mr. Kennedy’s plane was plunging at 5,000 feet per minute just before radar contact was lost Friday night, and pilots and aviation authorities said the description that has been provided seems to indicate a “graveyard spiral,”’ a corkscrew descent in which the pilot becomes disoriented and, desperate to right the plane, loses control.’”

This report would seem to be in conflict with the report that blamed the crash on confusion over where the horizon was, and disorientation during his descent, caused by haze and darkness, into Martha’s Vineyard.

How were they in a “graveyard spiral,” “corkscrewing” down at 5,000 feet per minute, when, in effect, the NTSB is saying they just lost track of their altitude and nosed into the ocean?

Those are two completely opposed scenarios which are mutually exclusive of one another…, meaning it had to be one or the other, not a combination of the two.

jfkjr 1

“John Kennedy Jr. had won the nation’s heart when at two years old he was seen on camera saluting his father’s coffin during the nationally televised funeral procession after President Kennedy’s November 1963 assassination. Nicknamed John-John, he grew up handsome and charismatic and was thus seen as a potential heir to the family’s glory days of political influence and celebrity.”

jfkjr

President John F. Kennedy,John F. Kennedy Jr.

“While his death was untimely and no doubt a tragedy, it was ruled an accident.”

There are accidents and then there are “accidents.”

What do you think?

New York City Mayor, Bill (de Bozio) de Blasio, announces his own “Green New (Bad) Deal.”

New York City’s mayor, the honorable (cough…, cough) Bill “de Blozio,” takes yet another step out towards the abyss of the whacky left with his latest proposals and intentions.

With politicians like de “Blozio,” they may have to rename Florida “Southern New York,” considering the mass exodus of New Yorkers fleeing to Florida in an effort to avoid being taxed into liberal oblivion.

According to Andrew O’Reilly for Fox News, “New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio faced a crowd of angry protesters Monday at a raucous rally promoting the city’s Green New Deal inside the lobby of Trump Tower, where the Democrat threatened President Trump’s family company with millions of dollars in fines if his buildings don’t comply with new environmental standards.”

blasio1

Going off the deep end environmentally and attacking President Trump?  Now that’s a winning liberal combination!

“Speaking in front of the same escalators where Trump launched his 2016 campaign, de Blasio blasted the President’s rollback of Obama-era environmental policies, his move to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement and his appointment of climate change skeptics to the Cabinet.”

These “fake news,” socialist-liberal, politicians are all the same.  It’s all about appearance and promoting a narrative rather than dealing with facts and truths.

blasio 6

The TRUTH is…, the Paris Climate Agreement only required the U.S. to make any real changes which would continue to negatively affect our economy, while all of the other countries in the agreement got to sit back, take advantage of us in the meantime, and then probably renege on their commitments 15-20 years from now.

It was the typical, stupid Obama, type of deal that we became familiar with during his reign of anti-Americanism.

‘“His [Trump’s] buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said. ‘Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about.’”

In case you’re wondering, “How are these buildings causing pollution exactly?” They aren’t directly causing pollution, as the mayor and his friends would make it seem…, the buildings are indirectly causing pollution by their consumption of electricity and their consumption of fuels for heating, etc. It’s all about improving the efficiency of how these building use energy.

blasio 4

“De Blasio, who is mulling a Democratic presidential run, added: ‘We’ll take your money.’”

Oh…, no doubt Mr. Mayor…, no doubt.  You actually mean “we’ll take MORE of your money,” don’t you?

blasio 7

“The mayor, though, was forced to shout for much of his speech amid jeers from a crowd of about a dozen protesters inside the lobby of Trump Tower, which also had music blasting over the speakers. A number of protesters rode up and down the escalator behind de Blasio carrying cardboard signs with slogans like ‘Worst Mayor Ever,’ ‘Failed Mayor,’ and ‘Trump 2020.’”

Too funny.

“De Blasio said he did not mind the protesters and added that it was ‘so nice for them to serenade us.’”

That’s a lie.

‘“They’re scared of the truth,’ he said. ‘Anyone that has a problem with saving the planet, I have a problem with them.’”

No…, we’re not scared of “the truth,” Mr. Mayor…, we’re scared of people who treat “fake news” like “the truth” and try to shove it down everybody else’s throats while grabbing money out of our wallets at the same time!

blasio 5

“New York City’s own Green New Deal plan – officially called The Climate Mobilization Act and modeled after the one proposed in Congress by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. – passed the City Council last month in a 45-2 vote. De Blasio has not yet signed the legislation but is expected to soon.”

You mean modeled after the Act Ocasio-Cortez proposed which failed on a 57-to-0 vote in The Senate, with all Republicans and four Democrats blocking the resolution, while 43 Democrats, including those who introduced the Green New Deal, voting “present?!”  Is that the Act New York’s plan is modeled after?

Impressive.

Of course, as opposed to the U.S. Senate, New York’s City Council overwhelmingly passed this nightmare 45-2.

This is just another example, ladies and gentlemen, of why all of our democrat led major cities are in a death spiral right down their respective toilets.

blasio 8

blasio 3

“The main facet of the deal is the plan to clamp down on emissions from the city’s famed skyscrapers with a goal of reducing overall emissions by 40 percent by 2030. Buildings create almost 70 percent of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to a recent survey.”

It’s really not the buildings, Mr. Mayor…, it’s those irresponsible people who work and live in these buildings who insist on lights and heat and stuff like that in order to work and live.

The nerve!

And here’s a newsflash, Mr. Mayor…, heating systems and electrical systems in these building will just naturally increase in efficiency over time as equipment fails and is replaced by newer and more efficient equipment.

There’s no need to go getting your undies all in a bundle!

That is unless you’re just grandstanding for political reasons.

Bingo!

‘“The first of any major city on the Earth to say to building owners, you’ve got to clean up your act, you’ve got to retrofit, you’ve got to save energy,’ de Blasio said last month. ‘If you don’t do it by 2030 there will be serious fines, as high as $1 million or more for the biggest buildings.’”

Does this include government buildings, Bill?  Why do I see some sort of waivers built in for the government and other “friends of Bill?”

“Upgrades to buildings in order to meet the new standards are expected to cost owners around $4 billion – a figure that has the city’s powerful real estate lobby up in arms.”

Is that all?

‘“The bill that passed…will fall short of achieving the reduction by only including half of the city’s building stock,’ Real Estate Board of New York President John H. Banks said in a statement. ‘The approach taken today will have a negative impact on our ability to attract and retain a broad range of industries, including technology, media, finance, and life sciences, that provide opportunity and continued economic growth that is so important for our city.’”

So this would be consistent with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s belief that New York doesn’t need any more of those evil good paying jobs, Like Amazon proposed, for its citizens.

“New York is not the only major American city to push its own version of the Green New Deal.”

Really!  Tell me more!

“Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti released a plan last month to make the city carbon neutral by 2050.”

Ahhh…, Los Angeles…, I should have known.

What would our country be without New York City and Los Angeles, besides much better off?
