HOW INTERESTING, THE JAMAICA GOOD OLE BOYS & THE QUEENS DEM MACHINE PLOP UP COMMUNITY BOARD 12 PRESIDENT FOR RUBEN WILLS COUNCIL SEAT

AND this is what is wrong with Jamaica and why Jamaica will continue to be a shit hole ghetto and nothing more. AND this is also what is wrong with the Queens Democratic Machine, they don’t care about communities (well at least certain communities) and their constituents.

When corrupt Ruben Wills (City Council District #28) was on trial for corruption, Congressman Gregory Meeks and the crooked Queens Democratic Machine still backed him. Now that Wills is heading to prison, all of a sudden the Machine needed a new puppet to throw into the mix, which several folks were already candidates for the seat.

City Council District 28
Richard David, Democrat
Allan W. Jennings, Democrat
Hettie V. Powell, Democrat
Christina Winslow, Democrat

BUT see the crooked Queens Democratic Machine does not want competition or fresh blood, they want puppets to control and so they are plopping up Community Board 12 President Adrienne Adams. I mean why did Adams NOT throw her name into the hat before, knowing full well that Wills has been a total do-nothing and fraud. NO, they wait till their other puppet, Wills, got convicted and then scrambled for a replacement puppet.

This is the same bullshit with Adams and the Machine that happened last year, when she ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary, whom the Machine did not back. She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to go against Gregory Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November.

So now we have the similar bullshit playing all over again.

Adams stated:

“Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.”

BUT ADRIENNE, if you wanted to represent the people, why didn’t you put your name in the hat, when crooked and do nothing Wills was on the ballot and was not on trial yet. See, this does not bode well and sounds way too “political”. If you have such best interests in the community, why didn’t you put your name on the ballot then. BECAUSE you did not want to go against that crooked Queens Dem Machine, who was backing Wills at the time.

MAJOR ASSHOLE Joe “The Godfather Crowley stated”

“The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community. Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.”

BUT when do nothing and crooked Wills was still on the ballot, you backed him Crowley, you did not put up Adams, so Crowley, YOU and the CROOKED QUEENS DEM MACHINE do not have the best interests of the community or the constituents (which look at what Jamaica looks like, that tells the REAL STORY), because if you really did, you would NEVER have backed the incumbent Wills from the get go, knowing full well he had DONE NOTHING for the community and his past was extremely shady.

Now while I feel that Adams really does care about this community and wants to do everything she can to help improve it, this whole thing smells too much of typical politics where the community and constituents take a backseat so that the Queens Dem Machine can always stay in power and keep new and fresh blood out of the picture, while they CONTROL ALL.

THAT IS NOT DEMOCRACY. You are just taking a page out of the playbook of the person you all constantly criticize, TRUMP.

AND so the Jamaica clown car circus and good ole boys club continues while the Jamaica community continues to suffer.

BUT people in that district, you still have the FINAL SAY SO. Don’t let the bully Queens Democratic Machine dictate for you. It did not work last time and Sanders won his seat by a large margin. AND I will say this to Senator James Sanders, Jr., at least he does not bow down to the Queens Democratic Machine. Sanders is actually endorsing Hettie Powell, going against the machine again. Good for him.

BOY, the stench of MENDACITY fills the community of Jamaica and the Queens Borough. In the meantime, we have this.

From Queens Chronicle:

Adrienne Adams seeks 28th Council District seat

 

Posted: Thursday, July 27, 2017 5:06 pm | Updated: 5:10 pm, Thu Jul 27, 2017.

Adrienne Adams, chairwoman of Community Board 12, on Thursday announced her candidacy for the Democratic nomination in the 28th City Council District, the seat vacated last week when Ruben Wills was convicted on corruption charges.

Adams’ announcement came with the endorsement of U.S. Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, Bronx), who also serves as the Queens County Democratic Party chairman.

 Crowley and the party previously had endorsed Wills for re-election.

U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens, Nassau) also has endorsed Adams.

She joins a Democratic field that already includes Hettie Powell, Richard David and former Councilman Allan Jennings.

“Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.”

“The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community,” Crowley said. “Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.”

“As we work to stem the extremism of Donald Trump’s presidency, having City Council Members who are committed to working together to deliver for our communities is critical,” Meeks said. “Adrienne Adams has a record of delivering for the people of Queens as Chairwoman of Community Board 12, and I know she’ll continue to do so as our new City Councilwoman.”

Adams has been chairwoman of Community Board 12 since 2012, taking over when the panel was in a state of turmoil.

She is also a member of the Jamaica Now Leadership Council, which promotes economic development in the neighborhood, as well as serving on the Governor’s Local Planning Committee for the Jamaica Downtown Revitalization Initiative in support of funding specific revitalization project,s and is a past member of the Queens Borough Public Library Board of Trustees.

Adams last year ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary.

She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to primary Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November.

Sanders is believed to be backing Powell for the nomination.

The Democratic Primary will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 12th.

TO PARAPHRASE IBSEN: THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE ARE OUR NYC ELECTED OFFICIALS – OUT OF TOUCH, DO NOTHINGS, CORRUPT & LIMOUSINE LIBERALS

Queens Borough Katz

The enemy of the people, especially in SE Queens are not the low-end criminal hood rats or the gangs like MS-13, creeping in the shadows, hiding under scaffolding, lying in wait in dark corners,  but they are in our back yards HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT with suit and ties, THEY ARE OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS, whose corruption, do-nothing attitude, brokering shady deals and inaction has created the low-end criminals, the gangs and the nonsense. to THRIVE.  From the top with the fake progressive Mayor DUMBO and his bullshit Queens circus tour which amounted to nothing more than a publicity stunt and a campaign tour & Queens BP Melinda Katz who has never really even walked around Jamaica, except to stand at the corner of Sutphin Blvd & Jamaica Avenue for the BULLSHIT TOUR or the steps of the Jamaica Performing Arts Center (hell she has not even been to the $2.2 million dollar upgrade to Rufus King Park that she loves to brag about to see what a garbage dump it is and how it has turned into an outdoor homeless shelter complete with public drinking and drug use) t0 all the black hacks like Gregory Meeks, Leroy Comrie, I. Daneek Miller, Vivian Cook and the ones who got caught like Malcolm Smith, Shirley Huntley, Williams Scarbough, & Ruben Wills. Then there are past elected officials and so-called community and church leaders like Rev. Floyd Flake, Archie Spigner, Manny Caughman and other buffoons.

Useless do nothing Senator Leroy Comrie

Former corrupt Senator douche bag Shirley Huntley, one of the local leaders who only looked out for herself. Now she is Big Bertha’s bitch in prison.

Councilman Ruben Wills being arrested in November of 2014

Buddies, Senator Malcolm Smith & Rev. Floyd Flake

Congressman Gregory Meeks

Bill De Blasio (c.) campaigns at Rochdale Village the day before Election Day with Assemblywoman Vivian Cook (second l.), Councilman Leroy Comrie (third l.), Assemblyman William Scarborough (third r.) and state Sen. Malcolm Smith (second r.) What a fucking embarrassment and look, it is useless Assemblymember Vivian Cook, rising from the dead and some of the other assorted Jamaica “leaders”.

AND I point out that these local elected officials are black because black communities and communities of color tend to suffer the most while the same color elected officials fuck over these communities like allowing a well known, documented poisonous, polluting waste dump, ROYAL WASTE, to be placed in the downtown area near thousands of homes and families and across from a park, Detective Keith Williams Park instead of standing up and FIGHTING IT (hell, Ruben Wills actually took campaign donations from this company).

They have all sat idly by while thug auto body shops, especially on Merrick Blvd, have turned the streets and sidewalks into a junk yard with junked and unlicensed vehicles and dangerously blocking the right hand lane of one of the most busiest streets in Jamaica, Merrick Blvd. They have sat quiet while a large number of underage girls of color have gone missing, kidnapped, raped and forced into prostitution like the 15 year old black girl who was kidnapped by St. Albans Joseph Gilbert and pimped out for FOUR MONTHS in Rev. Floyd Flake’s Greater Allen Church Senior Residence on Merrick Blvd (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/25/24-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-and-neither-have-any-loca/).

Instead of visiting blighted areas of the community, which there are many, they choose instead to do bullshit photo-ops at Senior Citizen places (but probably not Flake’s House of Underage Prostitution), bullshit street naming ceremonies, like changing that awful stretch of South Road (where that group home where the four hood rats with long arrest records were living when they gang raped a mother of two on July 11th) to Tuskegee Airman Way, which is an insult to those brave men who actually DID SOMETHING as opposed to these hack black elected officials who are a DISGRACE.

What’s more is that too many of the Jamaica residents VOTED for this clowns not just once but in the case of useless Leroy Comrie, several times (three for City Council) and once for Senate, somehow believing their transparent bullshit and lies, while not acting in their own best interest and the communities best interest.

Below is a comment from an area resident and his total dissatisfaction with the elected officials past and present. While Clean Up Jamaica has not really kept these clowns accountable as he stated, Clean Up Jamaica has exposed them for the complete udder frauds that they are and the complete and total bullshit and nonsense that goes on in this community with a dosage of FACTS, REALITY & PHOTOS.

—————————————–

Received this from Brendan Birth, a local SE Queens resident, who started a blog called BLIND JUSTICE.

I just want write this message to say thank you for keeping our politicians in Jamaica accountable. I really appreciate that, and it means the world to me that you all have sought to do this. My family had Anthony Seminerio as my Asssemblyman when I moved to this part of Queens (actually South Ozone Park, but often I get Jamaica pols like Wills, Meeks, etc.). I’ve suffered through Ada Smith, Shirley Huntley, and James Sanders as State Senators. Wills is my councilman, and years ago Alan Jennings was my councilman. Meeks carries a stench too. My long and growing list of people representing me who’s acted inappropriately and/or in a corrupt manner would be funny if it weren’t so sad. The saddest part about all of this is that few people seem to care. Not many voters. Not the Queens Democratic Party. Not Floyd Flake and the blasted political cartel in this area. And not most of the media. Given the amount of corruption I’ve experienced since moving to this area 18 years ago, you can see why I am tremendously grateful though for people who actually….excuse the language…give a shit about the corruption that constituents like me have experienced in this part of Queens for decades now. So I am grateful for Errol Louis and his showing the political cartel in this part of Queens for what it is…the only issue with Louis is that his plate is full trying to also cover the shenanigans in the rest of NYC. And I am most for you all at Clean Up Jamaica Queens, because you all have been such a consistent watchdog in this part of Queens. Thank you so much. Keep up the good work. And hopefully Wills being found guilty will be the beginning of the end of corruption in this part of Queens (though I won’t hold my breath on that).

OUR LIMOUSINE LIBERAL MAYOR, BOROUGH PRESIDENT & OTHER HYPOCRITICAL ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO DO NOT WALK THE TALK

Ironic that this completely hollow and superficial “borough tour” BULLSHIT (and major bullshit it was) happened during an upcoming election. This smacked straight on of a publicity stunt and an election campaign, nothing more. Completely HOLLOW and SUPERFICIAL with NO SUBSTANCE at at all.

This “Tale of Two Cities” Mayor and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz for that matter have never walked a day in the regular person’s shoes (let alone walk around their communities they are supposed to serve or take a subway for that matter) nor experienced all that we deal with on a daily basis. deBlasio lives in Park Slope, where his block or surrounding blocks, have no homeless shelters, no drug clinics, no illegal conversions, no trucks driving illegally on his street, no ROYAL WASTE DUMP near by for him to deal with 24/7 truck traffic, diesel fumes and foul smelling wastes, no auto body shops that have junked & unlicensed vehicles up on sidewalks and on streets, etc, etc. . His son is going to an expensive college in Germany, how many of you folks can do that. AND Katz lives in Forest Hills and does not have to deal with any of that shit either. Hell, these two clowns don’t even take the fucking subway (neither do any of the other hack elected officials). To come to Jamaica, dumblasio was chauffeured as was Melinda Katz who was coming only from Forest Hills to Jamaica and was chauffeured in some big ass gas guzzling black SUV.

Katz getting out of her chauffeured SUV to join dumBlasio for the BULLSHITPOLZO QUEENS TOUR. What can’t take the subway from Forest Hills. YOU ARE NOT THAT RECOGNIZABLE.

In the meantime while deBlasio and Katz were spilling bile out of their mouths all over Sutphin Blvd & Jamaica Ave, right up the block, a homeless person with one leg in a wheelchair was begging for money in front of a Rite-Aid, about five blocks away in South Jamaica a mother of two was brutally beaten and gang raped July 11 by four young hood rats with long arrest records living in a group home that no one from the community even knew was a group home and obviously had no kind of curfew or security, three blocks away a crew of homeless took over the Rufus King Park Pavilion (which $2.2 million dollars was wasted on upgrades) drinking beer while one individual was slicing up some drugs.  AND six blocks away, a recently built Comfort Inn on 162 St is now three floors for hotel guests and three floors for homeless, in which a half naked man in some kind of wheel chair thing was sitting right out in front near the entrance. DO YOU DUMBLASIO OR KATZ have any of THAT in your hoods, on your blocks, next to you?

Up and Coming Jamaica, a community in crisis.

Bad Mexican Hombres drinking in public, white white boy in background, cuts up some drugs. A few blocks from where Mayor and crew were doing their bullshit publicity stunt.

Damn, that white boy in the back is cutting up some good shit.

Downtown Jamaica Comfort Inn. Worker inside told me that 3 floors are for hotel guests and three floors are for homeless. Nothing like being greeted at a hotel than by a half naked homeless man sitting in hot weather.

Typical LIMOUSINE DEMOCRAT LIBERALS. AND you wonder how a completely unintelligent, totally unqualified dumb ass like Trump got to be President. Just use deBlasio and Katz alone as an example. Two hacks who are COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH with the regular folks of NYC and Queens and have no clue what we deal with on a daily basis. AND if you vote for either of them, YOU ARE A COMPLETE FUCKING IDIOT YOURSELF. A vote for deBlasio or Katz is a vote for MORE SHIT and a vote that reveals how fucking stupid, how uneducated, how out of touch with reality and against your own interests most voters are.

Our asshole local elected officials like Meeks, Comrie, Miller, etc, same shit. Have any of them ever taken time out to walk ALL over their community and  I mean all over, not just “good” spots, but in the dark, deep, recesses of Jamaica, where there are plenty to see how people live, what some places look like, see all the SHIT that is everywhere. I HAVE and I am not a public servant but someone who actually has a full time job, but find time to see the community. How can you say you represent the community, when you  have never really seen the majority of it. Kind of hard to do when you are shuffling off from one idiotic photo-op to another inane photo-op for STUPID street name ceremonies, various clubs, ribbon cutting bullshit or any number of the out of control hyper-developments that go on. ALL elected officials should be required to clock at least TWO DAYS of just walking around (or in Comrie’s case, scooting around) different parts of the community to see what they represent.

SUCH FUCKING HACKS.

Watch dumBlasio as a Queens woman gives it to him on one his neighborhood strolls and watch him not look at the woman, not answer her question, turn his back on her and head with entourage to his chauffeured vehicle.

From AM New York:

Our limousine liberal mayor

Mayor Bill de Blasio speaks earlier this month during the “Hamburg zeigt Haltung” (Hamburg shows dignity) gathering in Germany as world leaders met at the G-20 Summit. (Credit: AFP/Getty Images / SINA SCHULDT)

Are you a limousine liberal? Do you live in a trendy NYC neighborhood — maybe in a building with a doorman — but still vote for Democrats or consider yourself progressive?Though he or she might prefer Uber rather than an actual limo, a limousine liberal is generally someone who espouses a brand of politics that doesn’t quite match up with his or her tax returns and actions.Mayor Bill de Blasio, with his police-chauffeured SUV rides from Gracie Mansion to his Park Slope gym, is a limousine liberal. He tells tales of two cities, but it’s getting harder for New Yorkers to believe he’s in touch with theirs.

His liberal bona fides will be put to some sort of test in November. He’s raising tons of cash for his re-election campaign. No, he’s not using money from the now-defunct Campaign for One New York, which got substantial coin from real estate developers and invited the attention of local and federal prosecutors. However, the mayor’s progressivism and hat-in-hand requests for cash now look strange, and somewhat despicable, after this so-called progressive criticized how non-mayor New Yorkers ask for money on the street.

Not long after stepping out of his SUV and into a plane headed for Germany, our limousine liberal mayor phoned in to a NYC radio show and shared his disdain for panhandling. Some New Yorkers begging for money do it for the fun of it, he theorized, despite his lack to evidence to back it up. He’s asking the NYPD to be “creative” in how it enforces rules against begging, which isn’t illegal.

While de Blasio’s comments are reminiscent of Rudy Giuliani’s crusade against the squeegee men in the ’90s, keep in mind another irony for a mayor who’s attempted to promote his progressive image abroad despite a homelessness problem here at home. While de Blasio flew to Germany to protest world leaders, including President Donald Trump, during the G-20 gathering of world economic power brokers, residents in my neighborhood of East Harlem unveiled a mural on East 116th Street to protest the mayor.

Movimiento Por Justicia en El Barrio, an immigrant-led group of tenants and families who have rejected city rezoning plans for the neighborhood and rallied against the mayor, pushed for the mural to object to the mayor’s housing plan. A Trojan horse sits at the center of the mural, a symbol of the city’s affordable housing plan, which they say is a luxury housing plan.

As with all politicians, it’s best to focus on de Blasio’s actions — not his words or political stunts. Taking money from the real estate industry, being protested by tenants and bashing beggars aren’t indicative of a progressive reformer. You see, our limousine liberal mayor doesn’t want us to ask for change — either on the street or in ballot box. He represents the status quo of rising rents and disdain for the poor.

It’s time to show him the door and work to keep people in their homes with policies that favor the poor, not the rich.

SPOTLIGHT ON CROOKED ASSHOLE COUNCILMAN RUBEN WILLS: BLAST FROM THE PAST (2009), A VIOLENT GHETTO THUG IN THE MAKING

Yes, let’s keep digging the dirt on my favorite ghetto dirt-bag, crooked asshole Councilman Ruben Wills. Even when he was a candidate, he was already training for his asshole certification and a violent one at that too.

Ironic that Wills, who in the past has kicked off candidates from the ballot when he was running for councilman, had the same shit happen to him when he went up against Gregory Meeks for Congress and Meeks kicked him off the ballot (that is a very ghetto SE Queens tactic).

So with the election coming up and asshole Wills, who is on trial for corruption, is amazingly still staying in the race, but I think this ghetto political gangsta is finished. Time to collect the regular welfare checks Ruby, instead of the political welfare checks. Or you can always be a slumlord, since you own some property in Jamaica, that would suit you well.

Hell the article below is like a version of “House Ghetto Thugs of SE Queens” staring everyone’s favorite asshole, Ruby Wills. WHAT A FUCKING DIRT-BAG.

Cry-Baby Wills

From The Daily News:

Queens City Council candidate Ruben Wills throws punch at rival in Board of Elections office

Frank Perero (l.) and State Senator Allan Jennings outside of the Board of Elections where they were attacked by Ruben Wills earlier in the day.

(Bates for News)

A Queens City Council candidate took the brawl for City Hall literally on Friday, throwing a punch at a rival in a wild argument over election rules, witnesses said.

The brouhaha broke out at the borough’s Board of Elections office, witnesses said.

Ruben Wills – who’s running for the 28th Council District seat – took a swing at former City Councilman Allan Jennings, but missed and socked an aide, Jennings said.

Wills, 38, is challenging Jennings’ petitions to get on the ballot for the upcoming Democratic primary in September.

“He leaped up and came after me,” said Jennings, 42, who held the seat from 2001 to 2005. “He wanted a signature off, and I disagreed.”

Jennings campaign worker Frank Perero said he was sitting in front of a computer when Wills’ fist hit him and knocked him to the ground.

“All of a sudden, Mr. Wills pops with an angry look on his face, and I find myself on the floor,” said Perero. “My back is killing me.”

Wills, who told the Daily News he is withdrawing his petition challenge, accused Perero of “buffoonery to act like he was assaulted.”

He also accused Jennings of “using the F-word used for homosexuals. He used it 10 or 11 times. He kept going with it.”

Wills and Jennings are running against incumbent Thomas White for the seat that represents Richmond Hill, South Ozone Park, Jamaica and Rochdale Village.

A Board of Elections employee restrained Wills, who then left the building. Cops found him in a nearby store, Jennings said. He was not arrested.

“I can confirm that an incident happened,” said Board of Elections spokeswoman Valerie Vasquez-Rivera. “A police report was filed.”

Wills – who used to work for state Sen. Shirley Huntley – tried to run for Congress against Rep. Gregory Meeks in 2008, but was kicked off the ballot.

He vowed at the time to march on Washington if he was not allowed back in the race.

Wills also had a number of judgments and liens against him for not paying child support, taxes or his student loans, public records show.

Jennings is no stranger to controversy either.

The erratic former councilman made national news when he threw a metal object at a reporter on live TV.

Jennings also placed ads in Chinese language newspapers proclaiming his love for a folk dancer he was dating and his dislike for his wife.

He was accused of threatening a fellow Council member with biblical verses and used Council envelopes to promote his real estate business.

He was also censured in December 2005 for making sexual advances toward two female staffers and forcing them to remain quiet.

The women, who sued in federal court, received a $300,000 settlement from the city.

In 2005, Albert Baldeo, a candidate for the same Council seat was accused of aiming a gun at rival Robert Mahadeo and demanding that he drop out of the race. The charges were later dropped.

“We should be getting away from this type of politics,” said Lynn Nunes, who is also running for the seat. “People need to be focusing on issues in the community.”

 

DOWNTOWN EMPTY LOT AN EYESORE OF GARBAGE, WEEDS & ILLEGALLY STORED COMMERCIAL VEHICLES – JUST YOUR TYPICAL JAMAICA CRAP, BUT ACCORDING TO HOPE KNIGHT OF GJDC, “JAMAICA IS ALREADY SEEING BENEFITS” OF BOGUS JAMAICA NOW ACTION PLAN

A recent Queens Courier article (http://qns.com/story/2017/07/13/downtown-jamaica-already-seeing-major-benefits-action-plan-many-come/) had the Greater Development Corporation, President Hope Knight and bullshit artist Queens BP Melinda Katz boasting

Jamaica is already seeing major benefits from ‘Action Plan,’ with many more to come

Wow, excuse me while I head to the shitter and blow all that bullshit smoke that was blown up my ass by GJDC.

REALLY, benefits, like what kind of benefits. You mean like this problematic vacant lot smack in the middle of downtown Jamaica at the NW corner of 162nd St & 89 Ave, that has been an eyesore for years. Besides the typical chronic garbage that surrounds it and getS dumped all the time, despite the sign of “NO DUMPING, FINE $500 and the more than likely fake “security camera” signs, the weeds surrounding the place are completely out of control, not unlike the Jamaica community itself, but the lot has been storing commercial vehicles like big dump trucks, which is totally ILLEGAL in a residential area. So the owner who put up this sign needs to know the damn laws of the storage of commercial vehicles in residential areas.

This mess is ILLEGAL, storage of commercial vehicles in the Downtown area residential section.

Department of Transportation laws state:

Street storage of commercial vehicles prohibited

When parking is not otherwise restricted, no person shall park a commercial vehicle in any area, including a residential area, in excess of three hours.

BUT of course ENFORCEMENT is a rarity. I have been filing complaints about commercial vehicle storage in this location for several years to DOB, who this falls under, but to no avail, they are always stating “can’t find the location”. Doubt this would be the case in Forest Hills. AND because so many laws are NOT ENFORCED in the Jamaica area, the folks all know this and so it is the perfect place to store commercial vehicles on streets, in vacant lots and inside LIRR overpass tunnels. Auto body shops know that laws are rarely enforced and so that is why you see tons of junked and unlicensed vehicles on Merrick Blvd up on sidewalks, on residential streets and blocking the right hand lane of Merrick Blvd, one of the busiest stretches. SO pretty much it is a free-for-all for all kind of bullshit and nonsense.

Photos below  by the roving reporter “The Philster”.

AND speaking of BULLSHIT & NONSENSE, what is the deal with Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and all the bullshit and lies that have been flowing out of it lately. I mean, we have this whole Queens Courier bullshit propaganda about “Jamaica seeing benefits from the Jamaica Now Action Plan”, but as I posted early, what benefits (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/07/13/talk-about-fucking-delusional-gjdc-president-hope-knight-sees-major-benefits-from-jamaica-action-plan-let-me-show-you-the-real-ghetto-benefits-ms-knight-and-it-aint-fucking-pretty/).

Because the Queens Chronicle is stating something opposite with actual FACTS. So GJDC, Hope Knight, Melinda Katz and Gregory Meeks, someone is FULL OF SHIT and it certainly is not the Queens Chronicle.

So how about you all do something about this eyesore lot in downtown Jamaica, the homeless encampments at both Rufus King Park & Major Mark Park to start with. In the meantime, it is Jamaica nonsense as usual.

—————————

From Queen Chronicle:

GJDC: Still no news on station, 168th St.

Group still working to complete two high-profile development projects

The Greater Jamaica Development Corp. is once again pushing back deadlines for projects it had touted with much fanfare years ago.

Back in December, Hope Knight, president and CEO of the GJDC, told the Chronicle that the organization was negotiating with a potential tenant for the Shops at Station Plaza that it could not disclose at the time.

In the same email, she said that the GJDC was examining “a number of proposals” to develop what is now a parking lot at 168th Street and 90th Avenue in Jamaica; the site back in May 2013 was the subject of a press conference that included U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-Queens, Nassau) announcing an agreement to develop a $50 million shopping mall and parking garage.

Knight said she expected to have a signed contract “most likely in the first half of 2017.”

This week, a representative for the GJDC said a tenant for the Shops at Station Plaza, as well as a developer for the 168th Street property, are expected “in the coming months.”

It wasn’t supposed to be this way.

Station Plaza, located beneath the Long Island Rail Road trestle on Sutphin Boulevard, directly across from the main entrance to the LIRR’s Jamaica station, had its ribbon cutting in 2012, one of the final touches on the revitalization of the ancient rail hub.

The siting places it at a transportation crossroad for multiple bus routes, two subway lines and the JFK AirTrain. It was part of a $12.7 million project.

Two artists’ organizations, Chashama and BroLab, both active in New York City, were reported to be coming there in 2012.

But to date the only tenant is the Resorts World Casino in South Ozone Park, which opened a waiting room for its shuttle bus service there in 2013.

The 168th Street property sits across the street from the NYPD’s 103rd Precinct stationhouse and is a paid parking lot.

In May 2013, Meeks was the featured speaker at the GJDC’s Harvest Room when the group announced an agreement worth about $50 million with the Long-Island-based Blumenfeld Group, whose resume includes the transformation of the old Bulova Watch factory in East Elmhurst into a business office and conference center complex.

Blumenfeld executives at the time envisioned a big-box retail anchor and a 500-space parking garage. At an unknown point in 2015 Blumenfeld, according to sources, agreed to add an affordable housing component.

But by March 2016 the project was reported dead and the contract terminated. Neither Blumenfeld representatives nor GJDC officials would discuss the nature of the termination, with Knight saying that they would be putting out a request for proposals in spring 2016.

They did so last summer, with a call for a mixed-use project with at least 250 affordable apartments, including set-asides for artists, with retail space on the ground floor. The announced deadline for proposals was Dec. 2, 2016.

It was shortly after the deadline last December when Knight emailed the Chronicle with the new target date coming within the first half of this year.

Meeks, interviewed at the 2013 press conference, said he did not believe that the project would be subject to the numerous delays that have plagued some projects in New York City, such as the ongoing Kingsbridge Armory saga in the Bronx.

In 2009 a national developer proposed stores and shops that would bring 1,200 jobs, until Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. made demands for wages and other benefits that the developer would have to secure from all retailers signing a lease.

Diaz was quoted as saying, “The notion that any job is better than no job no longer applies.”

But the developer pulled out. It was another four years before a consortium headed by former New York Rangers star Mark Messier proposed a recreation center with multiple skating rinks. But that has been tied up in litigation for years, though in January Gov. Cuomo pledged some financial backing for the project.

Downplaying any chance of the 168th Street project meeting the same fate at the 2013 press conference, Meeks said, “The developer is on board and everyone is working together.”

Greater Jamaica has, however, been able to point to several development success stories in the last year alone.

In April, BRP Companies broke ground on The Crossing at Jamaica Station, a $407 million, two-tower apartment complex slated to bring 669 affordable housing units and retail space when it is competed in 2019; it is considered the largest single-project investment in Jamaica in decades.

Additional projects include but are not limited to:

• the planned 338-room Marriott Courtyard and Fairfield Inn Suites at 148-18 Archer Ave., scheduled to open in 2019;

• a mixed-use building with more than 350 affordable housing units at 92-33 168 St. scheduled to be completed in 2019; and

• 380 apartment units, including 20 percent of them affordable, in a 26-story building under construction at 147-20 94 Ave.

But all have, with the exception of The Crossing at Jamaica Station, proceeded without the initial fanfare accorded Station Plaza and the 168th Street lot.

QUEENS DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOVES TO TRASH TRUMP, BUT THEY NEED TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR AS THE CORRUPT LOCAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY BACKS CROOKED, CORRUPT, ASSHOLE ON TRIAL RUBEN WILLS FOR HIS CITY COUNCIL RE-ELECTION

BAD Wills

Despite Councilman Ruben Wills being up on major corruption charges which could land his ghetto thug political gangsta ebony ass in jail for 7 years, despite asshole Wills missing over 50% of city council meetings, despite being a dead beat dad who is behind on child support payments, besides not having one accomplishment for the community in his whole time in office, despite getting campaign donations from the mob influenced polluting Royal Waste which was dumped in the downtown residential area of Jamaica including across from a park and putting many families of color at health risks and despite being a low-class thug political ebony gangsta who would sell him mother’s pussy if he could get a nice kick-back, this fucking ebony clown and disgrace is being backed by the equally corrupt Queens Democratic party with the major black godfather of corruption, Congressman Gregory Meeks,  leading the charge. Yet each and everyone of these elected officials who standards are  lower than a child molester, will trash our idiot President every chance they get, yet will not only condemn and call out one of their own, but will actually throw their power and money behind Mr. Deadbeat Dad Asshole Thug Extraordinaire Do Nothing Wills. SAYS much about the Queens Democrat Party, all the SE Queens & Jamaica elected officials and how they actually feel about the community and the constituents they are supposed to serve. Pretty much this is a BIG FUCK YOU to the residents of the community with a side dish of a 15 inch dildo shoved up your lubricated anus.

I mean FOLKS, I know that many in the Jamaica and SE Queens community are low-class, stoopid, no respect, no pride, hood rats, thugs and ghetto idiots, BUT REALLY, many of you are NOT, yet you all voted for this political thug twice already, I mean would you actually vote for this ebony clown prince of ghetto a third time, despite having new, young , smart,  not hood rat candidates going up against him, like Richard Davis and Hettie Powell.

As candidate Richard Davis stated:

We cannot as residents of this district go on with a part-time, absentee Council member. We need someone who can get things done for us, and he can’t do anything.”

Richard David, 28th district council candidate going up against crooked Wills

or candidate Hettie Powell:

“I’m hoping the people in my district would vote for someone they know is not corrupt. I do believe I can represent the people with integrity from day one.”

Hettie Powell, 28th district council candidate going up against crooked Wills

AND of course when The Daily News called Will’s hood rat office and he actually picked up the phone and said he would return their phone call for the article, HE NEVER DID. I mean did you expect much from this ghetto political hood rat.

AND this fucking bullshit is why SE Queens and Jamaica, not matter how much money is dumped into this community for “development” or “upgrades” will continue to be the fucking nasty filthy ghetto it is. STUPID FUCKS PUTTING STUPID FUCKS IN OFFICE over and over again.

AND remember this crap ghetto has been brought to you by:

Former Councilman Archie Spigner followed by former Councilman now Senator Leory Comrie followed by current Councilman I. Daneek Miller, all part of the good ole boys club.

Useless do nothing Senator Leroy Comrie

Former Congressman Floyd Flake, now mega rich Rev. “Pimp Daddy” Flakey Flake, he of the Dementia/Alzheimer crowd that God said, “here MOTHER FUCKER for using my name to gain wealth and political power, have a dose of brain rot”, who was succeeded by The Black Godfather of Corruption, Gregory Meeks.

Former Senators Malcolm Smith and Shirley Huntley, the former in prison for about 7 years and Huntley who spent 1 year in prison on corruption charges and other bad behaviors.

Former Assembly Member and another prison buddy, William Scarborough followed by the very questionable Alicia Hydnman.

Councilman Vivian Cooks and the ebony clown price of STOOPID and Corruption, ghetto Ruben Wills.

I mean talk about your ebony clowns, thugs and political hood rats. AND they talk about the Snow Gang, Cripps and Bloods. This is the major crime ring that needs to be brought down in this community and YOU FOLKS can do it at the election pols, IF you make sure you get your asses out to the polls along with friends and families and this means you YOUNG FOLKS, the future of this community. GET YOUR FUCKING ASSES out there because these crooked black empire of Jamaica and SE Queens political gangstas are counting on you not showing up, while people like the Flakes get their sheeple congregation to go out and vote for these clowns like mindless robots.

AND speaking of Flakes, since June, neither the Flakes, nor Greater Allen Church, the local elected officials nor the management of Flake’s HUD Greater Allen Senior Residence on Merrick Blvd have come forward to comment or question how a 15 year old black girl was pimped out of the senior residence for four long months. NOT ONE (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/).

ALL SAYS MUCH ABOUT THIS FILTHY and ROTTEN GHETTO COMMUNITY.

From The Daily News:

Scandal-plagued Councilman Ruben Wills backed by Queens Democratic party — despite corruption charges

(Jefferson Siegel/New York Daily News)

Queens City Councilman Ruben Wills is up for re-election with some influential backers — even as he stands trial on charges he stole thousands of dollars from taxpayers.

The scandal-plagued pol has the support of the Queens Democratic party to keep his seat representing South Ozone Park, Rochdale and part of Jamaica, insiders say, but hasn’t reported raising a cent for the campaign.

He faces four challengers, including two who have racked up healthy fundraising totals and endorsements.

“We cannot as residents of this district go on with a part-time, absentee Council member,” said Richard David, a community board member and former city agency official who is running for the seat. “We need someone who can get things done for us, and he can’t do anything.”

Ruben Wills was just careless — not stealing grant money: Defense

Wills’ trial started last week on six corruption counts alleging he pocketed $30,000 in state grant money intended for a local non-profit and city taxpayer matching funds from his first City Council campaign. He faces a second indictment for separate charges of filing false documents with the Conflicts of Interest Board.

He’s also been chronically absent from the Council — missing 72% of the meetings he was supposed to be at in the 2016 fiscal year, absences he blamed on a medical condition he refused to disclose.

The Council stripped him of the ability to pass out member item cash because of the criminal charges, which opponents charge has hurt local non-profits. The Queens delegation instead chooses groups to get the money.

Richard David is one of the candidates running against Queens City Councilman Ruben Wills in the 2017 election.

(Richard David)

Hettie Powell, an attorney who got a third of the vote when she ran against Wills in 2013, has been endorsed by the Working Families Party, healthcare workers union 1199 and the Teamsters, while David has the backing of Communications Workers of America District 1.

Disgraced Councilman Ruben Wills’ accomplice skips court

“I’m hoping the people in my district would vote for someone they know is not corrupt,” Powell said. “I do believe I can represent the people with integrity from day one.”

Yet Wills — who would be automatically expelled from the Council if convicted — still has a solid chance of getting re-elected, as the vast majority of incumbents in the city do.

U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks and his influential circle of southeast Queens pols continue to back him.

“He’s been loyal to the club,” one insider said. “They’re not going to move away from supporting him because he’s been a loyalist for so many years.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if people in that district re-elect Ruben Wills. It’s just a tough district to unseat,” the source said.

Hettie Powell, an attorney who got a third of the vote when she ran against Wills in 2013, has been endorsed by the Working Families Party, healthcare workers union 1199 and the Teamsters.

(Hettie Powell)

Former City Councilman Allan Jennings — who was censured by the Council over sexual harassment allegations and defeated for re-election — has also filed to run for the seat. He didn’t return a call for comment.

Mike Reich, the executive secretary of the Queens Democratic organization, said the borough’s district leaders had designated all incumbent Council members for re-election, which includes Wills.

Wills could technically run for the seat even if he’s convicted and expelled from the Council, but community board chair Adrienne Adams could jump into the race with county support if he goes down before the September primary, sources said.

Wills answered the phone at his district office and said he would call a Daily News reporter back later, but never did.

The pol was indicted three years ago, and has had his trial repeatedly delayed.

“It’s gone on for too long,” David said. “It’s become a circus, but that makes it sound interesting.”

 

HIATUS IS OVER FOR THE TIME BEING & NOW BACK TO THE BULLSHIT THAT JAMAICA AND THIS CITY HAS TO OFFER: POLICE KILLING, HOLIDAY SHOOTINGS / KILLINGS, ASSHOLE RUBEN WILLS, AND OTHER NONSENSE

Well, unfortunately I am back to this shitty city of hell and back in the ghetto bowels of Jamaica, at least temporarily, until my next excursion scouting new locations and digs that will eventually remove me from the worst city in the country. Amazing, when you leave NYC, you realize just how totally FUCKED up this city really is. I mean you don’t have to leave it to realize that, but it becomes magnified 100 times more and you also realize that NYC is not as progressive as the so-called powers that be claim it is, in fact it really is not that progressive, just a load of bullshit & crap, just like it’s elected officials, some of the worst in the country.

AND CRAP IT IS.

Officer Miosotis Familia

I come back to find out that Officer Miosotis Familia, was murdered in cold blood in the Bronx by your typical hood rat with several aliases and a long rap sheet.

 

As I predicted before I left,  that someone in Jamaica would get shot and/or killed at some 4th of July family gathering, BBQ or party, and sure enough, hood rat Victor Ocasio, pulled out a gun, after his brother, Joseph, was arrested at this party for slapping and pushing a woman. Killed was a mother of two, Jasmine Quattlebaum and Herman Mullings, while a third victim who was shot, survived. All of this took place at 170th St and 107 Ave in the early morning, an area known for much bad behavior over the years, including many shootings and killing.

Funny, that Karen Clements of Communities of Color tweeted this before the fourth, guess she forget to tweet the most important words, “Don’t carry or shoot”.

On a side note, The Daily News article stated: The 28-year-old was allegedly angry that his brother Joseph Ocasio, 21, got arrested there around 1 a.m. for pushing and slapping a woman while she was holding a baby, police said.

WHAT THE FUCK, beside this hood rat slapping a female, why did some irresponsible mother have a baby up at 1AM. I MEAN WHAT THE FUCK. Do you every wonder why certain groups of people’s kids fall so far behind in school and if they do graduate, have the reading capacity of a 6 year old. EDUCATION FOLKS & PROPER PARENTING. AND PLEASE, don’t make some lame ass excuse like “I could not get a baby sitter or I could not pay for one”. RESPONSIBLE parents put their children first and DON’T go to some house party. IF you cannot do that, make sure that dick is wrapped up tight as Melinda Katz’s anus’s stick up the ass. And if you cannot take care of yourself both emotionally and especially financially, get a fucking gold fish, we are over-populated as it is and it seems the lower class are popping out babies faster than a Kardashians taking selfies. I mean it is not like you have a farm where your brood is going to work on it.

AND speaking of nonsense, asshole Councilman Ruben Wills is finally on trial for corruption, stealing money and other nonsense he has participated in, after numerous delays of his trial, including some “undisclosed illness” like being an asshole is an illness. AND of course his lawyer, O’Donnell, is already making up bullshit excuses for this political gangsta like some fucking flood in the office.

In the below article:

O’Donnell blamed Wills’ bad record keeping and a flood in the councilman’s office as reasons for why the elected official could not provide proper proof to the CFB of where the money went for a men’s luncheon. “Think of something you did five years ago that you can’t substantia­te,” O’Donnell said.

What,  Wills never heard of keeping information on a hard drive or USB stick. AND I or others who are not public service don’t really need to substantiate something we did five years ago, but if we did, like say tax information, that shit would be on file somewhere, be it paper or USB stick and considering that elected officials SHOULD ACCOUNT for everything, this is total bullshit just as is the following statement by his attorney:

Kevin O’Donnell, Wills’ defense attorney and Hill’s former colleague, swiftly disputed the prosecution’s claims in his opening statement as sloppy bookkeeping from Wills, a first-time elected official, from the 40s projects of South Jamaica with only a high school diploma.

So now we are going to play the race card that asshole Wills came from the South Jamaica projects with only a high school diploma. I AM SHOCKED, Wills actually graduated from high school,  BUT really, this is an insult to people who only have a high school diploma, I mean they still know that two plus two is four.

Some other interesting tidbits on Wills from other news sources:

Over at NY1: Meanwhile, Wills — who was first elected to the City Council back in 2010 but has been largely absent from council business these last few years — intends to run for reelection this fall.

Over at Queens Chronicle:

In a related matter, a Republican seeking the nomination to run for Wills’ 28th District Council seat asked a room full of Democrats on Saturday why they have not called on Wills to resign. Ivan Mossop Jr., during a question-and-answer session of a meeting with Democratic leaders and about 500 party members, was cut off by U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-QUeens, Nassau), who said the day was “a Democratic event.”

I love how Meeks uses that excuse a “Democratic Event” for not saying anything and not calling out Wills on his bullshit for his entire political career. Well, I guess then Meeks would have to be called out on HIS BULLSHIT as well . So, Meeks, what is your excuse and ALL THE JAMAICA LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS for still not calling out the Flakes and Greater Allen Church on the pimping out a 15 year old girl in Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence on Merrick Blvd (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/11-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-plus-some-new-info-arises/).

AND to continue on the lines of asshole elected officials from the area, Councilman Rory Lancman is sponsoring some nonsense bill requiring NYPD to provide data on fare evasion arrests, citing that 89 percent of such arrests were either black or Hispanic. I mean what the fuck Lancman, can’t you do fucking math, if the majority of people jumping turnstiles are Black and Hispanic, well, that percentage will be higher than for say, whites or Asians. Again two plus two is four. I mean are you attempting to create something that does not exist. In my couple of decades in NYC, every time I have seen a turnstile jumper, they have been black. AND while I believe that something like turnstile jumping and some other non-violent offenses should be decriminalized (yet still be a crime, a misdemeanor, we cannot continue to have our courts clogged up with minor issues like this while there are way more major crimes that need to flow properly through the system), this continuous playing the race card with local politicians to win votes, distorts the reality of what is going on. If people like Lancman and others want to play the race card, how about first talking about poor quality of life issues in communities like Jamaica and the lack of proper services as opposed to throwing more money down the drain on programs that don’t actually help the poor or the lower-class become more independent but instead become more dependent on government and continue to keep areas ghettoized. Speaking of turnstile jumping, considering how in the last decades the worst subway system in the world just keeps getting fucking worse, we should all be turnstile jumping, because the system is not worth paying a fucking nickel. And for you folks in the area, if you plan on using the F or E during the weekends this summer, you can forget about it, since there is NO E or F service between Jamaica (Jamaica Center & 179 St) and Forest Hills for five straight weekends. NONE. (http://qns.com/story/2017/07/08/five-straight-weekends-without-e-f-trains-forest-hills-jamaica-begun/

My comrade-in-arms and friend, Jamaica community activist/advocate recently sent out an email about the usual Jamaica crap stating:

“Amir ( Amir Abbady/Director of constituent liaison at Comrie’s office), please explain why Jamaica the black neighbourhood is neglected. But Forrest Hills and other non-black neighbourhoods are kept clean and attractive.”

While I will  totally agree that communities of color do tend to be neglected when it comes to quality of life issues, but that still does not mean the people have to make it look like shit either. Hell, the least some of you can do, is just throw your litter in a garbage can instead of the sidewalk, street, park and someone’s yard (well, what is left of yards).

AND another truck kills a 70 year old woman as she was legally walking in the crosswalk in Queens Village in yet another example of the failed deBlasio Vision Zero program. And speaking of Vision Zero, how many of you folks out there still continue to see large trucks driving on residential streets? I am sure many because the proper enforcement, like on most issues, is not being implemented. If that means we need more police in communities, then add them as opposed to spending billions of dollars on some idiotic street car connecting Astoria to Sunset Park along the river to benefit the glass tower people. I mean why put icing on a cake, if the cake is falling apart.

AND the continuous use of ILLEGAL FIREWORKS carries on and a blatant lack of any kind of enforcement on this issue is mind blogging in certain communities like SE Queens, where people anymore are packed in like sardines due to over-development to fill in every single open space with multiple cheap apartments, the kind that can easily go up in flames by such fireworks. I get it, is the 4th of July, but bottom line,  use of fireworks by individuals is ILLEGAL in NYC and for good reason. I will even give a pass on fireworks going off on the 4th, but here in SE Queens and folks from the area can attest, they start during Memorial Day and go all the way to Labor day, going off in the daytime, night time and late in the morning like 1am. NYPD certainly lets you know that they are illegal and to call 911 for fireworks going off immediately or 311 for continuous fireworks, but I know my calls to both 911 and 311 have failed to do a damn thing, even though I have given them the pattern of fireworks, EVERY FUCKING NIGHT BETWEEN 9pm and midnight with pinpoint locations. As usual lack of enforcement of laws in certain communities. Funny, how ghetto folks can’t pay their fucking bills, yet have money for fucking fireworks, which are not cheap.

AND since when is it legal for people to completely take over a public sidewalk and part of the street for them to have a party and on top of it play loud music from afternoon well into the late evening. Well, this is the situation that has been going on with your typical shitty apartment building where people do whatever the fuck they want. Like the folks at the apartment building at 169 St and 90 Ave (which is within ear and eye shot of the 103rd precinct) who during various weekends in the summer feel it is their right to take over a public sidewalk to hold a party with a large group of people as opposed to renting a hall or getting a permit for a space in a a park. Of course years of complaints filed have not stopped this bullshit, which you would never see on Melinda Katz’s block in Forest Hills.

Several 311 complaints filed resulted in the following, even though the music blasted from 4pm till I went to bed at 11pm and had to close my windows and crank the AC to drown out the sound. BUT just the idea that NYPD allowed this large group of people to take over a public sidewalk to have a party (which is ILLEGAL), which is not an isolated case at this spot but an ongoing issue NOT being properly addressed.

I get that noise complaints are on the bottom of the list, especially in an area like Jamaica where shootings, robberies, assaults and other nonsense go on on the time, but really, with 7 hours of this going on and my first complaint was filed right at 4pm when they set it up, I think there was plenty of time to correct this, especially since the 103rd precinct just sets across from this. UNACCEPTABLE.

Well, I am back at least for a short while till my next jaunt and I am just so tired with all this bullshit by both some of the residents and ALL of the elected officials, all stupid far right conservative crap, all the far left liberal blindness in this city and all the political clown asshole gangstas of the dirty SE Queens and beyond.

PS: If you have no, you should follow the story of that horrible fire in West London at the Grenfell Towers on June 14th (the unscrupulous cramming of poor people in unsafe cheap high rises – sound familiar), in which at least 80 people were killed (a final count may not  be known until 2018), YOU SHOULD (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/24/world/europe/grenfell-tower-london-fire.html). This is not just a story about a fire, this is a story about the treatment of the poor, the over-development and gentrification of all major cities, especially NYC and all the boroughs), the widening gap between mega rich and poor with the chiseling away of what is left of the middle class and greedy, unscrupulous real estate developers and the elected officials they keep in their pocket like so many nickels and dimes (The Godfather). Plus the whole after effect of this situation, especially if this asbestos filled tower collapses. BUT it is so hard anymore keeping up with news stories, since there is so much bad shit going on every other minute, especially with idiot Trump and his 1% elitists in the Oval Office helping that gap, while becoming richer and a pretty much cowardly media that focuses too much on fluff bullshit. Example: In The Daily News edition (7.8.17), there was a quarter page about Grenfell in the editorial section on page 18, YET, on pretty much the entire page 10 was a story on some no talent plastic human doll, someone called Blac Chyna (though I find nothing black about here, just another black girl looking pretty much white), another wonderful role model for young girls. The local blog Impunity City has the usual great insight into this tragedy citing it most appropriately “Gentrification’s 9/11” (https://impunitycity.wordpress.com/2017/07/03/the-grenfell-tower-in-london-gentrifications-911/)

CHRIST, these really are the “NEW BAD DAYS” (to quote one of my favorite informative local Queens blog you SHOULD BE READING, Impunity City), not matter how you spin it.

Mom of two, man shot to death in Queens amid Fourth of July celebration

 

 

Jasmine Quattlebaum, 28, was shot in the head and died at the scene.

(Facebook)

A gunman bent on revenge for his brother’s arrest at a Fourth of July party sprayed bullets at a Queens house early Wednesday, killing two revelers, including a young mom, police said.

 A woman, 27, was fatally shot in the head and a man, 28, was fatally shot in the back in a triple shooting on 170th Street in Jamaica, police said.

QUEENS — Two people, including a mother of tw

Victor Ocasio fired at least five shots during the drive-by at 170th St., near 107th Ave., in Jamaica around 3:20 a.m., cops said.

The 28-year-old was allegedly angry that his brother Joseph Ocasio, 21, got arrested there around 1 a.m. for pushing and slapping a woman while she was holding a baby, police said.

Mother of two Jasmine Quattlebaum, 27, was shot in the head and died at the scene, authorities said.

Herman Mullings, 28, was shot three times in the back and died of his wounds shortly after 5 a.m. at Jamaica Hospital, police said.

Quattlebaum’s brother Justin told police he got a threatening call from the gunman before the bloodshed.

“I’m going to shoot up the house,” Ocasio told him, according to police.

 Ocasio was seen driving by the home multiple times in his mother’s 2002 red Kia Sport before he opened fire, police said.

Cops traced the car to his mom and confirmed she was related to the partygoer arrested for assault and endangering the welfare of a child during the earlier call from the party.

Quattlebaum leaves behind a young son and daughter, friends said.

“She was a very sweet, kind female. She took care of all the kids on the block,” family friend Christine Trahan said. “I don’t understand why this has happened to her.”

Quattlebaum was a “hardworking single mother” who “loved her children dearly.”

“There’s not a lot of young women out here that take (care) of their children the way she did,” the Trahan said.

Her family was devastated by the senseless slaying.

“They’re destroyed right now,” Trahan said. “I’m destroyed looking at them.”

Quattlebaum was one of five kids, with two brothers and two sisters, the family friend said.

A third victim was struck by the gunfire but survived.

William Watson, 32, was rushed to Jamaica Hospital. He had bandages on an arm and was resting under sedation in the emergency room Wednesday.

Back at the scene, one neighbor recalled seeing Quattlebaum walk her kids to school each morning then take the bus to work in scrubs.

“She works. She’s very decent,” Donna Hope, 58, said. “Whenever she passes by she always says hello.”

Hope said Quattlebaum threw parties for holidays and special occasions.

“I heard fireworks all night long,” she added. “I looked out and saw some of them go off. Never thought the night would end like this.”

Prosecution, defense issue opening statements at Wills trial

 City Councilman Ruben Wills (D-Jamaica) went on trial in Queens Supreme Court Wednesday to fight 12 charges of fraud, falsifying business records and grand larceny brought by the New York state attorney general’s office.
 The prosecution, led by Assistant Attorney General Travis Hill, with an assist by fellow prosecutor John Chiarro, quickly laid out the multitude of accusations against Wills in an opening statement.

Wills, elected to the City Council in 2010, is accused of defrauding both the city and state by creating a shell company to siphon off campaign money for his own personal gain.

In his opening statement, Hill contended Wills stole public funds by using his New York 4 Life charity to issue bogus campaign translation services to Micro Targeting, the shell company which was run by a relative.

NY 4 Life is a charity that is supposed to honor single parents and help the southeast Queens neighborhoods that Wills serves to combat obesity with events four times a year.

“We wouldn’t be here today if the defendant, Ruben Wills, paid for his personal expenses with his personal account,” Hill said. “A not-for-profit bank account is not the same as your own bank account.”

Hill stressed to the jury that not only was some of the money Will used a grant from the state, but that the money from the city was from taxpayers.

According to indictment, Wills allegedly fleeced both the city and the state of $30,500 to go on shopping sprees at several retail stores and for personal expenses. Then he falsified how he spent the money, the indictment said.

 The money was from the New York City Campaign Finance Board and New York State Office of Children and Family Services, which gave his charity $33,000, according to Hill.

Chiarro told the jury Wills used the money to buy coffee at Starbucks, gas at Exxon Mobile, and a Louis Vuitton bag at Macy’s.

The prosecutor called Wills’ disregard for the law “an ongoing systematic state of conduct”and a disgrace to the Campaign Finance Board, which issued matching funds for his unsuccessful 2009 Democratic primary race. He won the seat in a special election the following year.

Kevin O’Donnell, Wills’ defense attorney and Hill’s former colleague, swiftly disputed the prosecution’s claims in his opening statement as sloppy bookkeeping from Wills, a first-time elected official, from the 40s projects of South Jamaica with only a high school diploma.

“No, no, no, no, no,” said O’ Donnell. “I can see why they might be suspicious.”

O’Donnell later explained that NY 4 Life was created in 2006 and honored single mothers with a morning banquet in 2006, 2007, and 2008, which was long before he launched his first Council bid in 2009 and supposedly mishandled campaign money from the CFB that same year. The attorney exclaimed that the event was so popular that men wanted a single father’s luncheon.

According to the indictment, Wills’ charity received money to hold four events a year, instead of one annual banquet, which is all the CFB could account for between Dec. 2009 to April 2010.

 “Yes, Ruben did create that in 2006, because he wanted to provide for single mothers,” O’Donnell said.

O’Donnell blamed Wills’ bad record keeping and a flood in the councilman’s office as reasons for why the elected official could not provide proper proof to the CFB of where the money went for a men’s luncheon.

“Think of something you did five years ago that you can’t substantia­te,” O’Donnell said.

The prosecution later brought Fritznar Nelson, the director of merchandise protection and former manager of investigations of Macy’s, to the stand to testify.

Nelson described his duties at Macy’s and his understanding of record keeping of transactions at Macy’s, including how to read a point of sales receipt.

As exhibit one, the prosecution had a receipt of a Louis Vuitton purchase, which they believe to be a bag, at the Macy’s in Roosevelt Field Mall in Nassau County.

According to Nelson, it appeared that Wills bought an item at the luxury store with a gift card, credit card and a debit card.

O’Donnell questioned how Nelson could know that Wills paid for an item at the store if debit card transactions are encrypted, and if the bar code doesn’t tell you what an item is.

“I can only tell it was a Louis Vuitton product,” Nelson replied.

Afterwards the prosecution approached the bench and the judge announced a recess.

Lancman bill would require demographic data on fare evasion arrests

Councilman Lancman is sponsoring legislation requring NYPD to provide periodic data on fare evasion arrest.
 City Councilman Rory Lancman (D-Hillcrest) has sponsored legislation requiring the NYPD to provide periodic data on fare evasion arrests.

Lancman, who also serves as chairman of the Committee on Courts & Legal Services, sponsored the bill in response to new data from the state’s Division of Criminal Justice Services that showed that of the 8,625 individuals arrested for theft of transit services so far in 2017, 89 percent were either black or Latino.

 Lancman said the new data confirms that the city’s prosecution of fare evasion as a crime disproportionately affects immigrants and people of color.

“The data from 2017 is strikingly similar to recent years, as 89 percent of the thousands of people arrested for jumping a turnstile are black or Latino,” he said. “New York City is unnecessarily running people through the criminal justice system and putting immigrants at risk of deportation. This is a grave injustice that falls squarely at the feet of Mayor de Blasio for using arrests and criminal prosecution rather than issuing civil summonses for violating MTA rules against fare evasion.”

According to Lancman, the data from the state also highlights the need for his bill requiring the NYPD to periodically publish data on fare evasion stops, including both arrests and civil summonses, by station and precinct, as well as demographic information on those stopped.
