Media’s Racist Turn In A Press.

As I Open And Turn On My Computer To Read The Latest Headline’s  I Always Try To Understand Which Paper Or Which Writer Today’s Current Event’s Stories Emerges From, Of Course This Plus The Subject Of The Articles Paints And Form’s A Clear  Picture For The Day’s Mood.

By Now We Have All Read Them And Either Cast Them Aside Or Talked About Them.  These New Story Headlines Tend To Push Aside Yesterday’s Main Topic’s, Issues And On Most Occasion’s National Concern.

Through This Manner I Paint And Form My Own Views On How Much Weight To Ply On Any Given Story.

That Gun Control And The Fiscal Cliff Agenda Are the Current HOT Topic Of The Day On A National Scale, Homelessness, Poverty, Death By COP, Racism, Hate, And The Fact That One Month Later, Affected Homes From Hurricane Sandy Are Still Without Power, Heat And Hot Water Speak’s To The Nature Of That Great Beast, The News Media

This NY Post Article Placed On The NY Post’s Online Electronic Newspaper Paper Jumped Right Out At Me, Mainly That It Was At The Top, The Very First Story My Eyes Beheld To Form My Own Agenda For The Day, That Of  Tawana Brawley And Her Then Allegation’s Of Rape.

While We Never Saw from This Newspaper The 25 Year Anniversary Of   Borough Of Queens, President Donald Manes (Who Was Embroiled In The Infamous NYC Parking Violation’s Bureau Scandal Under The NYC Mayor, Ed Koch Administration And Who Committed Suicide In His Hospital Bed While The Scandal Was Unraveling.

Racism In Media

Racism In Media

I Applaud That The Reverend Al Sharpton Faced The Onslaught Of The Racist Media And Is With Us Today Still Making Change Happen, It Is Unfortunate That Donald Manes Is Not.  Who Know’s How Far The Parking Violation Bureau Scandal Would Have Went And How Many Of Today’s Public Leader’s Would Have Been Affected Had He Lived And Not Taken The 5th (Literally) Violating Countless Biblical Percept’s And Public Trust…

That Federal Legislation Has Stalled And Relief Not Fully Delivered  En masse , Because Some Politician’s Have Decided  To Add Funds For Projects On The West Coast Even Though The Hurricane Disaster Was On The East Coast Some 1,000 Plus Miles From The Affected Area’s…Go Figure The Greed And Gall Of These Not So Few Opportunist’s., Many Beneficiaries Of The Handy Work Of Our Media Today.

That The Current Administration Lead By Mayor Michael Bloomberg Has Jumped On The Issue Of Gun Control In Such A Manner That Even His Own Supporter’s Were Taken Aback On How He Can Confuse Illegal Gun Control With the Tragedy In Connecticut, Where Legally Obtained Firearm’s Were Used Show’s The Bias Of The Media. 

His Need To Have The Last Word Is Not Suprising When They Paint Him In A Favorable Manner And The Media Eat’s it Up Like The Now Defunct Twinkies…Yet His Debacles Like Citytime, The Death’s of Citizen’s During The Blizzard Of  2011 Fumble, And Many Other Articles That Cast A Truer More Unfavorable Picture Of His Administration Are Not Remembered Nor Do They Resurface. I Have Enumerated Some, Had They All Been Named, One Could Write A Book.

It Left A Sour Taste To Witness The Manner And Depth The NY Post And Several Other Media Outlet’s Have Downgraded Their Priorities In What To Write About, In Which Way To Post These Articles And What Weight To Give Them.

We Normally Open Our Mailboxes And Discard The Usual Junk Mail Glancing Casually Over Them For A Second And Forever Discarding Into The Trash And Our Memories.

I Glanced At These Two Pieces Of  Junk Mail 26 Year’s Ago And Discarded Them,  But Then 25 Year’s Later We Receive The Same Junk Mail.

This is Was Today’s Junk Mail In Today’s New York Post. Thank You New York Post For making My Brain Foggy With Your Clutter!

He Came To Heal In A Press!

I Am Not He That Stated….

Michael Bloomberg

 

The List Is So Huge That One Writer Alone Would Have To Use Several Blog’s To Enumerate The Failure’s Of This Boston Transplant And His Connecticut Educated Scheming Sidekick, Slushfund Chris Quinn. An Invader Maximus, A Blemish In The History Of The Office Of Mayor That As History Will Bear Out, Have Made  Even The Annal’s Of The Historic Tales Of Tammany Hall BLUSH!

In 2008, Quinn backed Mayor Bloomberg on a controversial bill that overturned voter-approved term limits and allowed for the mayor, city Council Members (including her), and borough presidents to run for third terms, reversing the results of two successive public referenda.[18] The Public Advocate and Comptroller both denounced this move; neither sought a third term. In June 2009, the City Council passed a budget that imposed a 40% budget cut on the Public Advocate’s Office.[19] No other city agency had its budget cut more than 6%.[citation needed]

The Corruption, Mismanagement Of City, State And Federal Tax Payer Fund’s Is Staggering To Leave One With No Place To Hide Their Dropped Jaw’s At The Knowledge Of This 12 Year Fiasco.

The Puppet‘s Use In This Game Of Bait And Switch Is Notorious, With Local Historic Writer’s Having A Field Day In It’s Retelling Of How Mayor Bloomberg, And His Sidekick Another Notorious Hatcher Of Scheme’s Christine Quinn‘s Defacto Administrative Takeover Of The NYC Charter’s Rules, Regulation‘s And By-Law‘s….

Yes It Will Take Me Month’s To Enumerate The Failure Of The Voter’s, The Cities Agencies, The State Agencies And The Court’s On How Could One Effeminate Man And One Lesbian Could So Hypnotize A Society As A Collective, While Avoiding City Administrative And Criminal Charges.

I Will Attempt To Enumerate Several Instances Of Behavior So Egregious As To Be Borderline Criminal In It’s Scale…One Such Example Is This Story In Today’s New York Time’s A Local Paper That Opine’s And Rallies To The Aide Of This Oppressor’s Hitleristic Frame Of Mind.

At Loft Conversion, City ‘Stop Work’ Order Failed to Stop It for Long

The building sits in the Greenpoint-Williamsburg Industrial Business Zone, created by the Bloomberg administration in 2005 to Preserve Manufacturing jobs. The designation seeks to prevent the conversion of industrial buildings for Postindustrial purposes. Residences were not approved, though hotels, nightclubs and a few other uses were. The fashionable Wythe Hotel is one such exception.

Previous owners of 239 Banker applied to create a hotel but built lofts instead — not only exploiting a loophole in the zoning rules, in local planners’ view, but also affronting the spirit of the rezoning.

“It’s not crime and disinvestment that’s the enemy of the working-class jobs here anymore,” said Leah Archibald, the director of the East Williamsburg Valley Industrial Development Corporation, a nonprofit entity that administers the Industrial Business Zone. “It’s gentrification that’s become the enemy.”

Yet after only a few months, construction restarted. This summer, the building began filling once again, advertised on Craigslist under varying names, like “the Sweater Factory Lofts” or “the Rustic House,” for $2,800 to $3,800 a month.

And the violations piled up. The building has been cited for, among other infractions, working without a permit, lacking the necessary certificate of occupancy and violating a stop work order.

The building manager, who would give his name only as Reuven, said most violations were the responsibility of the previous owners. He said he was speaking on behalf of a company called North Side Lofts LLC, which took over in October. (The Web site of the city’s Finance Department lists different owners, but those people said they no longer owned the building.)

This Above Is Just An Example Dating Back To The 1980’s Followed By The Election Of Rudolph Guliani Who’s Only Claim To Fame And Contribution Prior To Being Elected Mayor Was To Prosecute Drug Dealer’s, Prostitution Rings And Organized Crime Syndicate’s.

Was This A Prelude To The Delusion Of The Requirements For Mayor, Could NYC Voter’s Have Elected An Educator, A Family Man Or Perhap’s A Social Worker.  Voter’s Were Given Choices And Decided That They Needed A Prosecutor As Mayor So As To Clean Up Times Square From It’s Adult Entertainment Grime As Well As The Street’s From It’s Prostitution Aura.

Poverty Level‘s Continued To Rise, People On Food Stamp’s And Welfare Rose, Indeed Things For The Poor Never Seemed Bleacker. And The Poor Never Knowing Anything Better Became Adjusted To Sustained Poverty. Indeed Crime Level’s And Homelessness Stood Stagnant Rising And Falling Unchecked, While The Public Service Sector Job’s Rose Especially In The Law Enforcement Portion Of The City’s Budget.

The Racism And Bigotry In The Public Sector Continued To Rise As More And More Of The White Population Received Work To The NYPD And NYPD, While The Number’s Of Non White’s Lowered Even Further.

It Was An Age Of Racism Capped Off By Crown Height’s Riot’s And Violence In Brooklyn’s Neighborhood’s.  The Crack Epidemic And the Ignorance Of The Ignorance Of The Mostly All White State Legislator’s In Albany Led To The Experiment Named “The Rockefeller Law’s” That Led To Thousand’s Of Arrest’s, Indictment’s And Incarceration’s (Of What We Now Know To Be The Victim’s Of Social Inequality And Racism). 

This Filled The Penal Institution’s To Full Capacity And In Many Cases Led To The Double Bunk Fiasco, Where Inmates Bed’s Were Placed In A Bunk Bed Style Configuration Making This The First Mass Use Of Air Right’s In A Human Form, Imagine The Law’s Granting The Incarcerated A Minimum Number Of Personal Space And Placing These Alloted Spaces On Top Of Each Other To Maximize Space. In Fact This Situation Threatened To Explode In Mass Riot’s In The Penal Institution Until This Concept Was Implemented Only To Be Eliminated By Court Order Year’s Later.

The Explosion Of The Development Of Newer Institution’s Boomed In Upstate New York, In Just About Every County There Was. Employment Sky Rocketed In These Area’s Where An Institution Was Erected, Yet Those Employed Were Local Resident’s And Tended To Be White, A Double Bonus For The Status Quo Of Racism And Discrimination.

Then Came 9-11 And The End Of The Giuliani Administration, Enter Bloomberg From Boston To Lead NYC Through One Of The Worst Times For Resident’s Lacking Food, Shelter, And Fund’s For Their Day To Day Existence.

While NYC And The Nation Grappled With The Aftermath Of The Attack’s Or Implementation of A New World Order Mayor Bloomberg’s Administration Took Advantage Of This Confusion And Insecurity To Bolster The NYPD Rank’s As Well As The Devastated FDNY Number’s, Still 90 Percent White….In Fact Lawsuit’s Were Filed And Won Against The Bloomberg Administration On The Racially Discriminatory Exam’s Given To Potential Candidates For The NYPD.

While The Developer’s Of Upper Income High Rises Grew And Waterfront Properties Were Being Set Aside For The Rich And Influential Population, The Homeless Steadily Grew To Overshadow And Over Burden Local Hispanic And African American  Communities Of The Poor And Disenfranchised During The Giuliani Administration’s Pogrom’s.

Developer’s Saw A Chance To Rebuild These Area’s Devastated By The Historic Black Out Of 1977, Only To Then Charge Exhorbinent Rent’s Not Affordable For Those Of The Latin And African American Communities Displaced By The Fire’s That Followed. These Area’s Witnessed A Major Influx Of Mostly White Gentrified’s Who Had The Prerequisite Disposable Income Required By These New Developer’s From Williamsburg Hasidic Community.  While These Special Developer’s Were Given Tax Break’s, Bank Loan’s. All Types Of Local Property Land Use Variances As An Incentive To Build Here, But With No Requirement That They Need To Offer Low Income Apartment’s As A Condition To Resident’s Dispossed By These Fire’s, It Was Mayor Bloomberg’s A Proponent Of Development And Wall Street’s Constant Cheerleader, That Began A Wholesale  “Fire Sale” Of The Area’s Housing The Poor And Disadvantaged.

All This While The Homeless Population Number’s Exploded To Number’s Never Before Seen Since The Great Depression. Indeed While The Mayor’s “Fire Sale” Continued The Services For The Poor Diminished, Cut Back, Sometimes Eliminated As In The Advantage Program.

Indeed The NY State Legislator’s Passed A Law A Bill that would have offered more rent relief to roughly 11,000 New Yorkers with H.I.V. or AIDS, Only To Have It Vetoed By Governor Patterson.  Let’s Not Forget That Mayor Bloomberg Wrote The Governor Opposing This Legislation Stating That 10 To 15  Million Will Devastate NYC’s Deficit, All The While The Mayor’s Pet Project’s And Financial Fiasco’s Like CITYTIME Continue To Devastate The Budget’s For Social Services, Education, Housing, Hospital’s, Transportation, And Infrastructure’s Such As Highway’s.

Meanwhile Back On Earth The Homeless, The Mentally Disabled, Low Income Earner’s And The Uneducated Mass’ Suffered Further When The Cycle Of “Charter School’s” Were Created….A Concept Unheard Of Beforehand….The Idea To Allow A Private Educational Institution To Utilize And Occupy Public Education Space Is Mind Boggling If Not Criminal To Say The Least.

The Blizzard Of 2011 And Now Hurricane Sandy Have Devastated The NYC Population Causing death’s, A Few Attributed To Mayor Bloomberg Incompetence As A Planner On Emergency Preperation’s…He Just Goes With The Flow.

How Much Of The Space’s Of The Poor, The Loss Of Public Education, The Loss Of Public Hospital’s, The Increase Of Fee’s For City Service’s And The Basic Tax Base Will Be Given Away By The End of This Mayor’s Tenure….Who Know’s…..
