Shocker, not: Shootings surge in NYC amid disbanding of NYPD’s plainclothes anti-crime unit

As if no one could have predicted this…

From NY Post:

Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday.

By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week.

“This is what the politicians wanted — no bail, nobody in Rikers, cops not arresting anyone,” one angry law enforcement source said Friday.

“All those things equal people walking around on the street with guns, shooting each other.”

The shooting spree includes at least five murders, sources told The Post.”

Wait, what? NYC counting people who were presumed to have died of Wuhan virus but never tested positive.

Science – or something…

The New York Times reported last night that the New York City Health Department revised their Wuhan virus deaths to “include people who had never tested positive for the virus but were presumed to have died of it.”

That now puts the Wuhan virus death count in NYC above 10,000.

According to the story, Dr. Oxiris Barbot, the commissioner of the city Health Department, said while these so-called excess deaths were not explicitly linked to the virus, they might not have happened had the outbreak not occurred, in part because it overwhelmed the normal health care system.

“What New Yorkers are interested in, and what the country is interested in, is that we have an accurate and complete count,” Dr. Barbot added. “It’s part of the healing process that we’re going to have to go through.”

She also noted that “more study was needed.”

Nothing says “accurate” in science more than “presumed” and “not explicitly linked.”

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.”

Sally Field: Hanoi Jane’s TDS-infected, Hollyweird environmental hypocrite buddy

Sally and Jane seeking attention

Environmental activist PR-hungry Hanoi Jane had her Hollyweird buddy Sally Field join her last Friday to get arrested for another media stunt. Details from The Independent:

“Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field, 73, has become the latest Hollywood star to get herself arrested at Jane Fonda’s weekly climate change protests in Washington, DC.

The protests are known as Fire Drill Fridays and were originally inspired by Swedish teen Greta Thunberg’s Fridays for Future movement, with Fonda – 81 herself – hoping to help sound the alarm over what she calls the “climate emergency” and strong-arm the US government into taking action against carbon emissions and other pollutants.

“Today we’re going to focus on jobs, communities, and a just transition, a critical part of the fight for new green jobs,” she said.”

As if the actress has ANY clue as to what a “green job” truly is.

Sally Field’s CA home

Sally Field’s NYC home

Proof that Sally cares NOTHING about “green jobs?”

See the following:

Sally Field has just bought a lovely, understated new home in the fancy Los Angeles enclave of Pacific Palisades: A 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2,806 square-foot pad
Sally Field scores sweet NYC digs: Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and comes with a hefty monthly maintenance charge of $2,426
From 2018: Sally Field “In Pieces” Book Signing in September, October, & December (tour included many cities in CA, WA, Ontario, NJ, FL and IL)
In April 2019 Sally was in London to present the Best Actor award during the Olivier Awards
Sally Field feted at Kennedy Center Honors in Washington DC
Sally Field scheduled tour date for March 2020 in North Carolina

How does Ms. Fields travel to all these places from her home bases? Via donkey? Solar-powered boats? Inquiring minds want to know…

Typical Hollyweird Hypocrite.

“Woman” attacks Christian man preaching on NYC subway

From the YouTube video description:

“A shocking video shows a woman brutally beating a 79 year-old man as he was preaching with a Bible on a NYC subway.

CBS News New York reports the violent attack happened last week on a southbound 2-train near Times Square. Passengers recorded the assault using their camera phones.

The woman is heard on the video threatening, “You better get the f*** out my mother******* face or I’ll bust your head open.”

According to police sources who spoke with local New York City media, an unidentified woman confronted the elderly rider as he was preaching and began screaming obscenities at the man.

She then took her spiked stiletto heel and began striking the senior citizen with it, leaving him with a gash on his head.

The 79-year-old man, who is presumably a Christian, was left bleeding as fellow riders sat and watched the suspect attack him. Following the attack, passengers called the police and the senior citizen was rushed to New York University hospital where he received 30 stitches for his wounds.

Instagram user @f.u.n.m.i.k.e, who recorded the vicious assault and injuries suffered by the 79-year-old, noted the older gentleman “didn’t say anything to hurt anyone, he wasn’t even loud, you could barely hear him talk but this is what he got in return.”

I use the term “woman” lightly because if you listen to the video (link on funmike IG posted above), you can clearly hear the deep voice of a man coming from the “woman” attacker.

Just because you wear a wig and high heels doesn’t mean we can spot a man, baby.

NYC secretly exports homeless to other states; not advising recipient states

That’s not exactly solving the problem…

From NY Post: New York City generously shares 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.

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) data obtained by The Post. Families, who once lived in city shelters, decamped to 32 states and Puerto Rico.

The city also paid travel expenses, through a separate taxpayer-funded program called Project Reconnect, but would not divulge how much it spent. A Friday flight to Honolulu for four people would cost about $1,400. A bus ticket to Salt Lake City, Utah, for the same family would cost $800.

Add to the tab the cost of furnishings, which the city also did not disclose. One SOTA recipient said she received $1,000 for them.

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.

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

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.

“We were initially seeing a lot of complaints about conditions. Now that the program has been in operation long enough that the SOTA subsidy is expiring, one of our main concerns is it might not be realistic for people to be entirely self-sufficient after that first year,” said Jacquelyn Simone, policy analyst at Coalition for the Homeless.

DHS said 224 SOTA families have ended up back in New York City shelters. The agency did not answer The Post’s repeated requests for the number of families who wind up in out-of-town shelters.

“We suggested that DHS reach out to people as their subsidy runs out to confirm they will be secure and not have to re-enter shelter, but the agency told us they have no plans to do that,” said Legal Aid lawyer Joshua Goldfein, whose firm represents SOTA families who say the city pressured them to move into New Jersey slums, then ignored calls for help.

About 56% of the families move out-of-state, costing the city an average of $15,600 in annual rent. Thirty-five percent move within city limits with an average rent of $20,500, and 9% move elsewhere in New York state, costing approximately $17,900.

Homeless individuals and families are eligible for SOTA if they can prove that 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.

The agency’s website provides vague descriptions of the income and shelter-stay requirements.

DHS said its reps work with landlords in cities where families want to move to find housing. At least two SOTA families told The Post DHS pre-selected New Jersey apartments for them to view during a “van run,” then insisted they quickly sign leases.

Some pols 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?” 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.
