Well, we can never get enough news about the pigs at the trough elected leaders and there are no bigger pigs than Ebony & Ivory, aka, Senator Malcolm Smith and Councilman Dan Halloran. Of course, the corrupt, slimeball, despicable Smith, up on corruption charges has the audacity to run for re-election for his Senate seat, even though his black ass could be going to prison for trying to rig the mayor election. Plus the fact that he has been one of many lousy leaders who have done shit for the community of Jamaica.

According the the Queens Courier:

Judge postpones decision on dismissing some charges against Smith, Halloran

A judge Friday did not decide on motions to dismiss some of the charges against State Senator Malcolm Smith and former Councilmember Dan Halloran.

Halloran’s case was adjourned until February 28, according to sources. A spokesperson for Smith could not confirm his next court date.

After pleading not guilty in April, Halloran and State Senator Malcolm Smith, along with other defendants in the case, initially appeared in court in July to fight some of the charge against them.

Officials said Smith, a Democrat, bribed county GOP bosses to let him run for mayor as a Republican.

Halloran is accused of setting up meetings between Smith and county leaders and negotiating payoffs. He allegedly pocketed nearly $21,000 in cash and offered up councilmember item cash in exchange for bribes, officials said.

Vincent Tabone, ex-vice chair of the Queens County Republican Party, and Joseph Savino, former chair of the Bronx County GOP, allegedly took at least $40,000 in cash bribes as part of the conspiracy, authorities said.

COMMUNITIES LIKE JAMAICA ARE LESS LIKELY TO GET CONVENTIONAL MORTGAGES

From The Daily News:

Banks issue fewest conventional mortgages in minority neighborhoods

New Economy Project says St. Albans leads the pack of neighborhoods where banks are the least likely to grant conventional mortgages.

Real estate agent says it’s long been hard for prospective buyers to secure conventional bank mortgages in minority communities.

Real estate agent says it’s long been hard for prospective buyers to secure conventional bank mortgages in minority communities.

It took Dante Jones four years of living with his folks and working absurdly long hours to scrape together a $15,000 downpayment for a home in southeast Queens for himself, his fiancé and his six children.

The city employee was pre-approved for a mortgage on a five-bedroom house in St. Albans last year, but just as he was expecting to close, the bank backed out of the deal.

Prospective homebuyers in St. Albans, a predominantly black neighborhood that is the epicenter of the foreclosure crisis, received the fewest number of conventional home mortgage loans from banks in the city, according to the New Economy Project.

The southeast Queens neighborhoods of Rosedale, Springfield Gardens and Jamaica, and the Brooklyn communities of Brownsville, Canarsie and East Flatbush, got the fewest numbers of conventional mortgages, the Manhattan-based financial justice group said.

Granted buyers are too blame to a certain extent for taking on mortgages that they know they could not afford, but banks are a big part of the blame and this statement below is ludicrous.
“It’s just a little bit misleading to just point the fingers at the
banks,” said Isa Abdur-Rahman, executive director of the Farmers
Boulevard Community Development Corp., in St. Albans.

“In other communities, it’s more common that parents and grandparents
are able to contribute to the down payments,” he said. “Many black
families have not yet reached that point where parents and grandparents
are financially able to contribute.”

What communities, I am certainly not aware of many people able to get the down payments from parents and grandparents. This is just BULLSHIT

WITH BLACK HISTORY MONTH HERE, TIME TO SHOW SOME PRIDE AND REPECT FOR JAMAICA

Black-History-Month-LogoWith Black History month here, time for the community of Jamaica to begin to show some pride and respect for this community.

The treatment of this community by our residents is appalling.

So this February, begin to take pride in your community and respect it. Instead of just saying the community looks liek shit, start filing complaints through the month of February.

LONG ISLAND CITY’S LOW-CLASS GHETTO TRASH ARE WELL TO DO WHITE FOLKS WHEN IT COMES TO DOG SHIT

dog shitIt seems like Jamaica is not the only place that is going to dog shit, literally. It seems the rich neighborhood of of Long Island City near the water with all the luxury high rises are going to dog shit as well and the low-class ghetto folks there are the white rich folks who feel that they do not need to cleanup their dog shit.

According to The Daily News:

POOPED WITH POOCH POOP

Residents of Long Island City are barking mad.

Several seething citizens of the Queens nabe say that dog owners in a luxury high rise on Center Blvd are too lazy to pick up their pooches’s poop, which has been unceremoniously abandoned on the sidewalk and dumped in the buildings otherwise pristine garden.

For $4000 a month rent in Long Island City, this is your view.

For $4000 a month rent in Long Island City, this is your view.

“This whole area is littered with poop and nobody does anything about it”, Long Island City resident Tinnille Neilson told the LIC Post of the poop outside 45-45 Center Blvd.

A spokesperson for building owner TF Cornerstone told the paper: “Regular notices are sent to residents reminding them to curb their dogs”.

Smiley Happy White People

The new faces of low-class ghetto trash in Long Island City

As I have said all along low-class ghetto is a behavior and state of mind, that knows no color or race. The only difference with this situation in LIC and Jamaica, here in Jamaica we are not paying millions of dollars for apartments or $4000 rent. For that amount of money, you should be able to eat off your sidewalk. But with these low-class ghetto white rich folks, that is not going to happen.

QUEENS LEDGER COMMUNITY EDITOR ANDREW SCHILLING WEIGHS IN ON THE JAMAICA GARBAGE PROBLEM

In yesterdays’, Queens Ledger, Andrew Schilling wrote an editorial in regards to the horrendous garbage problem that has plagued Jamaica for years and the lack of any kind of action to deal with it.

LedgerCity needs new tools to battle garbage

by Andrew Schilling

The communities of Southeast Queens have complained about overwhelming litter for years, and as trash continues to pile up in the neighborhoods of Southeast Queens, local politicians and city officials say there is no easy solution.

Walking through the residential communities of Jamaica, South Jamaica, Hollis and St. Albans, it doesn’t take long to notice the overrun pollution from homes bleeding out into the streets.

According to recent reports, these communities made up of nearly 20 percent of the borough’s trash complaints in 2013. Of the 4,628 trash complaints, the Department of Sanitation reported cleaning 289 lots, or 34 percent of the nearly 861 city-managed tidying efforts throughout Queens.

Groups like Cleanup Jamaica Queens Now surfaced early last year to document what they see as injustices throughout their community, putting a call out to their elected leaders for change. The Department of Sanitation, however, recently said in published reports that the problem is more complex than they could have imagined.

“It’s not, you call me today and a lot gets cleaned tomorrow,” a spokesperson with the DSNY said, explaining that the department has to obtain individual permits for each property before going in to clean up the mess. “Each lot is different. It’s a process.”

However, as the community now sees new hope with a voice in the Borough President’s office – former Jamaica Councilman Leroy Comrie was recently appointed deputy borough president – they can only wait to see if more focus is shifted their way.

While the permit process to remediate contaminated and overrun properties can be such an arduous process, the angry Jamaica residents deserve a new look and action to crack down on the problem.

Now that the litter has been more than adequately documented, the city should consider legislation to increase dumping penalties and fund an emergency cleanup of a portion of the borough that so many feel has been left in the dumps.

Not only would it have an effect in southeast Queens, but neighborhoods across the city that have to deal with run-down abandoned homes and absentee landlords, including all of the problems that come with them, such as rats, disease and lower property values.

This article stated “However, as the community now sees new hope with a voice in the Borough President’s office – former Jamaica Councilman Leroy Comrie was recently appointed deputy borough president – they can only wait to see if more focus is shifted their way.:

As a Jamaica resident and founder of CleanUpJamaicaQueens, I and many others have little faith in Leroy Comrie. For twelve years as Councilman in our district, he rarely addressed this issue nor came up with any type of action plan. If he did nothing for twelve years as Councilman, I highly doubt he will do anything as Queens Borough Deputy President.

I also get tired of hearing it is more complicated than it is. First off, if the problem was addressed and taken care of years ago when it started happening, then it would not be as big a problem as it it now. Second, it is not that complicated, government always wants to make issue more complicated than it is instead of doing something to change the situation.

ANOTHER JAMAICA SCUMBAG INVOLVED IN A BRUTAL CRIME

Boy, it never stops with the knuckleheads here in Jamaica. I just finished praising young Kylon Coomb for being awarded the prestigious Robeson Award, when some scumbag knucklehead,  24 year old Leighton Jennings, is in the news for a brutal beating.

If figures this scum bag would be from the Greater Jamaica Area, we have so much trash out here and not just the garbage trash, plenty of human trash as well. Time to take it all out for good.

From the Times Queens Ledger:

Southeast Queens man arrested in beating of gay journalist

A southeast Queens man was arrested Tuesday following the vicious attack on an award-winning, gay journalist in Midtown Manhattan last week, police said.

Cops cuffed Leighton Jennings, a 24-year-old from St. Albans, on charges of assault, police said, as Randy Gener recovered at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital in Manhattan after he was brutally beaten early in the morning Jan. 17.

The NYPD said officers were called to the corner of 7th Avenue and 54th Street around 3 a.m. Friday where they found Gener — an openly gay writer, editor and artist — lying on the ground with severe head trauma.

Police said the suspect took off in a gray car with Mississippi license plates.

The only photo I have seen of this piece of shit is the artists sketch, but I actually dug up a photo of this low life.  Pretty much looks to me like some homophobic guy on the DL, usually these types that do this, usually are.

The actual photo of the scum bag. Maybe some of you far far left bleeding heart liberals would like to rehabilitate him.

DANGEROUS SNOW/ICE STILL ON RESIDENTIAL SIDEWALK-DOS FOUND NO VIOLATION

Let’s see, the big snowstorm happened the weekend of January 18, so being January 29th, sidewalks should be removed of all snow and ice, but yet here in Jamaica, that is not the case, even after filing a 311 complaint on January 23rd.

Looks like a major violation to me, but then I suffer from common sense.

Looks like a major violation to me, but then I suffer from common sense.

The address of the notorious vacant lot (although some construction of some shit hole apartment is going up there)  known for garbage all around it, a broken sidewalk and now dangerous ice and snow that has yet to be removed by the owner or the city is 89-28 170th St (corner of 170th/Ave). Considering that young children and elderly people walk by all the time, you think this would get taken care of, but then maybe they are too dark a color to even care about.

Here is what I got back from 311:

SERVICE REQUEST #: 1-1-930554321
CREATED ON: 01/23/2014 6:11:29 AM
REQUEST TYPE: Snow
DETAIL: Snow/Icy Sidewalk
INCIDENT ADDRESS: 89-28 170 STREET
INCIDENT BOROUGH: QUEENS
STATUS: The Department of Sanitation investigated this complaint and found no violation at the location.
LAST UPDATED ON: 01/23/2014 12:00:00 PM
NEXT UPDATE DUE: Closed – No Further Updates

Now you tell me what the photo tells you. The only reason there is somewhat a path (although all ice) is from people walking on it. I filed 7 complaints about sidewalks that day, 1 actually got a violation, 2 no violation observed and 5 are still under investigation (why not wait till Spring).

This property has been very problematic since I moved here 3 years ago, with garbage always being dumped on the surrounding sidewalks and a broken uneven sidewalk that I have filed 3 complaints with Department of Buildings since two years ago and it still has not been resolved.

Years of complaint have not resolved this broken sidewalk.

Years of complaint have not resolved this broken sidewalk.

Broken sidewalk, garbage and now snow/ice not taken care of.

Broken sidewalk, garbage and now snow/ice not taken care of.

I mean WHAT THE FUCK folks, this is common sense. As usual everyone involved has done the usual in Jamaica, NOTHING. I wonder if a slip and fall will help take care of that, I mean I do walk on that sidewalk all the time.

Councilman I. Daneek Miller, this is in your district or are you going to respond the way your former predecessor, Comrie did, and by responding I mean DOING NOTHING.
