Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams tells new New Yorkers ‘go back to Iowa’

That “liberal tolerance” on display.

Eric Adams

From NY Post: He has a dream — of leading a New York City that is home to far fewer Midwesterners.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams — the leading fundraiser in the 2021 mayoral race — used Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. national holiday to deliver an inflammatory broadside against newcomers from the nation’s heartland.

“Go back to Iowa, you go back to Ohio,” he said during a speech in Harlem. New York City belongs to the people that was here and made New York City what it is.”

Speaking at the National Action Network’s “King Day Celebration,” hosted by founder the Rev. Al Sharpton, Adams implicitly played the race card as he denounced gentrification by singling out two states, Iowa and Ohio, that are 91 and 82 percent white, respectively.

Adams also rattled off a litany of social crises — including drug abuse and gun violence — that he said were ignored when they only affected the nation’s “black and brown community.”

He then declared himself “unapologetic” as he invoked the slain civil-rights icon, saying that “if you know the spirit and anything about Dr. King, he did not allow others to be comfortable while everyone else was living in horrific conditions.”

Adams — who raked in $437,099 in political contributions during the past six months, with major donations from the real-estate industry — railed against what he called the “displacement of the people who made this city.”

“You were here before Starbucks,” he told a crowd of about 300 who greeted his remarks with cheers and applause. “You were here before others came and decided they wanted to be part of this city.”

Adams referred to the transplants as “folks who [are] not only hijacking your apartments and displacing your living arrangements, they displace your conversation and say the things that are important to you are no longer important. And they decide what’s important and what is not important.”

In Bushwick, caterer Jenna Hockman, 28, a lifelong Brooklynite, said Adams was “blaming individuals instead of the system that enables developers to build these high rises that are pricing people out.”

“I am concerned about placing responsibility on the individuals that are moving to these neighborhoods and not the people who are making money from these individuals moving there,” she said.

The Republican leader of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland, said Adams “took Martin Luther King Jr.’s message of unity and made it a divisive message.”

Pervert who identifies as 8-year-old-girl defends child porn collection

The video above is from two months ago and doesn’t mention the pervert’s claim that he identifies as an eight-year-old girl.

WZZM reports this week that the pervert will spend at least a decade in prison for dozens of images of child pornography found on his home computer.

The perp, Joseph Gobrick, 45, claimed the images were computer-animated and protected under the First Amendment.

“I’ve always been an 8-year-old girl,’’ Gobrick said at sentencing. “And even my drawings and fantasies, I am always an 8-year-old girl.’’

Turns out the images were all computer-animated: Police said they identified eight victims.

The perp is also a convicted sex offender from New York. He was arrested in 2018 after a 17-year-old Ohio girl listed as endangered/missing was found at his Grand Rapids home. I have no idea why this guy was allowed to run free after those incidents.

Well, I have a couple ideas that all start with demorat-promoted beliefs, namely the concept that one can change their gender.

I mean, if you can change your gender and become “gender fluid,” why can’t you identify as a different age? Can’t you just be who you feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeel your true self is born to be?

If demorats are REALLY serious about protecting children, they’d stop promoting mental illnesses which ultimately cause the most harm to children.

Progressive utopia of New York City is losing residents at an alarming rate

At the end of 2019 Mayor Bill de Blasio claimed that New York City Is ‘safest big city in America.”

Demorats….delusional as always.

Excerpts from the NY Post report:

New York is in a State of Decline. Despite the nation’s longest economic expansion, the Empire State is actually losing population, an analysis of US Census data released Monday reveals.

The total state population as of mid-2019 was 19,453,561 — a drop of 76,790, or 0.4 percent, from the previous year, according to the study by the Empire Center for Public Policy.

New York was one of only 10 states to suffer a total population decline in 2018-19 — its fourth consecutive annual decrease after five years of growth, and the largest population drop of any state. Only West Virginia, Alaska and Illinois saw their populations fall at a faster percentage clip.

“You’d think with a strong economy, New York wouldn’t be losing population,” said the Empire Center’s E.J. McMahon, author of the report.

He surmised that the high cost of living may be catching up with the Big Apple region, historically a magnet for newcomers that offset population losses in economically struggling upstate.

Not anymore. New York’s population has been stagnant over the past decade, with a modest 75,459 increase in residents since 2010, a growth rate of just 0.4 percent, ranking 46th-lowest out of 50 states.

Stagnant growth has real consequences. The state will likely lose at least one and possibly two congressional seats — and political clout — after the next official decennial census count because of its failure to grow compared to other states.

By comparison, the total estimated US population of 328,239,523 was up about 1.6 million over the 2018 total. Since 2010, the national population has increased by 19,493,985, or 6.3 percent — nearly 16 times the New York rate.”

No way to opt out? Brooklyn second graders exposed to naked locker room encounters

Principal Tang

From NY Post: The principal of Brooklyn’s PS 169 is in hot water over a swimming program for second-graders that exposes them to more than just the backstroke.

Parents at the Sunset Park School are aghast the tots are taking lessons at a Manhattan fitness center where the children gather in a locker room with the club’s sometimes-naked members, school insiders told The Post.

Kids were seeing naked adults in the locker room. They don’t close the access to the public. Any member could come in. Adults could come in, change in the locker room while these kids are in the locker room at the same time,” one source said. “Teachers are in the locker room as well. They see the kids naked. The kids see each other naked.

But principal EuJin Tang — who once made headlines for canceling Christmas at the school — told parents they could not opt out, the insider said.

Furious parents even called 311 to complain, the insider said.

Tang touted the weekly lessons at Asphalt Green in Battery Park City in a June letter to parents saying that in September students would be provided with “more real-world experiences. For example, every second grader will learn how to swim.”

The school has about 1,400 students in grades K-5 and serves mostly immigrant and low-income families. The student population is about 62% Asian and 33% Hispanic and half the kids are English language learners. There are about 300 students in second grade.

Tang held a midday meeting with parents in October and, in a seeming about-face, said the swimming lessons weren’t mandatory. But no notice went out to parents who couldn’t make the meeting, the insider said.

She wants this program so bad. She doesn’t want them to opt out,” one parent said.

Asphalt Green offers the “Waterproofing” program to children in public and private schools. “Over the past 25 years, Asphalt Green’s Waterproofing program has provided free and low-cost weekly swimming lessons to tens of thousands of public school students, in an environment that is safe, educational, and fun,” an organization spokesman said.

The organization said it offered the use of private family changing rooms to allay any concerns. But the PS 169 insider said kids must still wait their turn in the communal locker room where they can see the nude adults. Tang did not respond to requests for comment.

A DOE spokeswoman said only two families opted out and that “Swim lessons save lives, and this program helps ensure children, regardless of background, have access to them.”

Tang ruffled feathers shortly after arriving at the school in 2014 when she decided to scrap Santa Claus, celebrate the “fall harvest” rather than Thanksgiving and eliminate a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance over the school’s public address system.

The principal, then known as EuJin Jaela Kim, was forced to change her tune after a Post expose. But she stirred up controversy again in 2016 when she threw away 1,200 almost-new desks and replaced them with tables.

ICE arrests Mexican national with pending manslaughter & gang assault charges; released despite active detainer

ICE press release dated 12/02/19:

“NEW YORK — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers arrested Feliciano Perez-Bautista, 32, on Tuesday, Nov. 26. Perez-Bautista, a twice removed Mexican national who has pending manslaughter and gang assault charges, was released from local law enforcement custody with an active detainer due to Westchester County’s Immigrant Protection Act.

“When law enforcement agencies decide to not honor ICE detainers and release violent criminals back onto the streets, they are putting their city at serious risk,” said ICE New York Field Office Director Thomas Decker.

“We want nothing more than to cooperate and work together with local law enforcement authorities in order to protect our communities and keep this nation secure. Unfortunately, more and more we are seeing politicians place their own political agenda above the safety of the citizens in which they serve. This leaves local law enforcement agencies handcuffed by these reckless policies which give them no choice but to release criminals, like this unlawfully present Mexican national charged with manslaughter, back onto the streets to further terrorize the community.”

On July 8, 2019, Perez-Bautista was arrested by the Yonkers Police Department (YPD) for the charge of gang assault 1st degree: cause serious physical injury. After the victim succumbed to his injuries, Perez-Bautista was additionally charged with manslaughter 1st: with intent to cause serious physical injury. On July 12, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the YPD. On July 30, ERO deportation officers lodged a detainer with the Westchester Department of Corrections. Neither detainer was not honored, and Perez-Bautista was later released, without notification to ICE.

On Nov. 26, ERO deportation officers assigned to ERO-New York’s Newburgh Sub-Office arrested Perez-Bautista, who was previously removed by ICE in May 2013 and September 2014, in White Plains, New York. He is currently detained in ICE custody pending a removal to Mexico.”

Trump critic wants to buy his childhood home so he can tear it down

Going through life with so much butt hurt can’t be healthy. Maybe this guy should consider adding a few therapy sessions to his GoFundMe page.

From NY Post: President Trump’s childhood home in Queens is a tough sell.

After being listed for $2.9 million and floated as an Airbnb rental, it was slated for a Nov. 14 auction. But the auction has been postponed indefinitely — because no one who is interested has enough dough to make a bid.

Misha Haghani, of Paramount Realty USA, tells The Post the Jamaica Estates house where Trump spent the first four years of his life is off the auction block for now so prospective buyers — which include Trump’s critics — have time to accumulate funds via crowdsourcing sites.

“We postponed the auction to give campaigns a chance to raise money,” Haghani says.

In September, LA resident David Yates launched a GoFundMe page seeking $5 million to buy the five-bedroom Tudor home — and then destroy it. So far, his “Tear Down Donald Trump’s House” page, posted on Sept. 22, has garnered $0.

The 2,000-square-foot home last sold in 2017 for $2.14 million to a Chinese investor. Before that, in 2016, it traded for $1.4 million. Haghani handled both sales. (The median home sale in the neighborhood is just under $1 million, real estate appraisers say.)

“I want to buy it and tear it down,” Yates wrote on his GoFundMe page. “Trump grew up in the house. God forbid some Trump maniac buys the house and turns it into a shrine, or a museum.” He adds that he will hire a “professional camera crew to film the entire event.”

(Also from the GoFundMe page: “I am asking you to be an active part in DEMOLISHING Donald’s legacy.”)

Haghani says he has heard from other people who are trying to raise money to buy the home and then put it toward a good cause.

“People have talked about demolishing it, creating a museum, donating it to immigrants or veterans, creating a presidential library and other things,” Haghani says. “I’d love to see something positive happen with this very unique property, like donating it to a 9/11 first responder, either that or see President Trump buy it himself.”

The house was built by his real estate developer dad, Fred, who then moved the family to a larger house behind this one. Both are far from the gilded Trump Tower penthouse triplex that the president called his primary residence until his recent move to Florida.

It pays to be a race hustler: Al Sharpton received $1M in pay from his own charity

He needs that big salary as he still owes $698,470.99 in back federal taxes for three of his companies.

From Fox News: He’s the million-dollar minister. The Rev. Al Sharpton raked in $1,046,948 from his own charity last year, according to National Action Network’s latest tax filings obtained by The Post.

Sharpton got a $324,000 salary — 32% higher than his 2017 pay in addition to a $159,596 bonus and $563,352 in “other compensation.”

The Harlem-based nonprofit — which Sharpton controls as president and CEO — said the extra cash was to make up for the years from 2004 to 2017 when he didn’t get his full pay. NAN said it hired an executive compensation firm that determined the good reverend was owed $1.252 million — but he was generously willing to take $500,000 less.

Sharpton and the nonprofit’s board also agreed “he has now been fully compensated for all the years he was underpaid and received no bonus,” the NAN statement said.

The sharp-dressing, silver-tongued preacher defended the windfall before taking the stage for his weekly rally at NAN’s House of Justice in Harlem, an event where attendees throw cash in the collection bucket at the reverend’s behest.

“Fifteen years, you are talking about since 2004 when I came back after running for president,” he said. “For anybody else it would be laughable.”

He said he also deserved the 2018 raise. “It’s a six-day-a-week job and several hours a day and when [the compensation firm] compared it to other companies, other nonprofits, that’s the salary that they would get,” he said.

The firebrand activist and MSNBC host was not exactly earning minimum wage in recent years. The last year he went without a salary was 2008, and he has made well into the six figures every year since, tax documents show.

He certainly wasn’t coveting his neighbor’s paycheck in 2017, when his NAN salary came to $244,661, or the year before, when he was paid $250,000 plus a $437,555 bonus. NAN justified the bonus at the time saying it was designed to make up for a lack of full compensation, including no retirement or benefits packages over the years.

The nonprofit also noted in 2016 that Sharpton’s average yearly pay of $283,543 from 2007 through 2016 fell within the competitive range of those who held similar positions.

In 2014, Sharpton got much more than the average pay — $348,244 plus a $64,400 bonus, tax filings show.
