  • 1-Year-Old Boy Shot To Death In Stroller Outside Brooklyn Playground: ‘When Does This Stop?’

    07/13/2020 1:55:33 PM PDT · by MarvinStinson · 75 replies
    A 1-year-old boy was shot to death overnight near a playground in Brooklyn. Police said the child was sitting in a stroller with a group of people having a barbecue when gunfire erupted. The boy was identified as 1-year-old Davell Gardner Jr. Mayor Bill de Blasio held a moment of silence during Monday’s press briefing and said he was “heartbroken” over the child’s death. “We’ve got to take resolve out of every situation like this. We can never give up,” he said. “We can never give up on our children, we can never give up on our families, we can...

    A New York City store owner is suing Gov. Andrew Cuomo, accusing state and city leaders of failing to send in law enforcement to respond to the rioting that happened during recent protests, according to the attorney handling the case. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Domus Design Center, an interior design business located on Madison Avenue in Manhattan, also names Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea as co-defendants. “Basically, the city and state government owe a duty to the individual storefronts to protect them," attorney Sal Strazzullo said Friday on “Fox & Friends.” "My law firm...

    Philip Delves Broughton, in Monaco for the trial of Ted Maher, finds that the principality is a rotten little retirement home for fat catsIt was bucketing down in Monte Carlo and the casino was empty. Croupiers sat forlornly at the tables in the gilded Salle d’Europe and in the large private rooms at the back, overlooking a sheer drop to the Mediterranean. Several of them were horsing around with the sticks they use to gather in chips. The restaurant tablecloths were starched and laid with silver, but the waiters had no one to serve. A few old birds in dodgy...

    Over the past month, statues and depictions of prior presidents, Christopher Columbus, and even religious homages have been subjected to forms of vandalism by many unhinged “activists”. So, it is with little surprise that the latest casualty of the attacks on statues was none other than that of famed abolitionist Frederick Douglass in Maplewood Park. According to Rochester Police, the tearing down of the statue of Douglass took place during the Fourth of July weekend. Police stated that the depiction of Douglass was removed from the base where it was erected, and was found approximately 50 feet from its original...

    New York — The New York State Fair will not happen in 2020, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said today. “That makes me personally very unhappy, but that is where we are,” Cuomo said during a press conference in New York City. “This is a really tough one.” It has been over 70 years since the last time the fair was canceled. The event didn’t run from 1942 through 1948 because of World War II and its aftermath.

    Friendly Fire: Are NY Patients Dying Of COVID Because Of Doctors? by Pennel Bird for Liberty Nation A retired army sergeant and war veteran turned whistleblowing nurse alleges horrific medical malpractice at a Queens hospital. Erin Olszewski’s abbreviated tenure at Elmhurst Hospital Center was during the months that New York was the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, suffering the highest number of COVID deaths in the nation. Her claim that the standard of medical care at Elmhurst was commensurate with “a third world country hospital” is based on shocking undercover videos she made of conversations with colleagues, supervisors, and...

    You may not be traveling to go swimming or see fireworks this weekend, but one thing is universal to July 4, even in the midst of a pandemic: hot dogs. Whether you're having a few hot dogs yourself at home or tuning in to watch competitive eaters gobble up a few dozen in the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, hot dogs should be top of mind Saturday. Even this yearly tradition isn't untouched by the COVID-19 pandemic; for the first time, the contest will be held indoors without any spectators, in Brooklyn, New York, rather than Coney Island. And...

    Since the city agreed to divert up to a billion dollars in NYPD funding Tuesday, the #OccupyCityHall protest has waned at City Hall Park - yet some protesters are sticking around, insisting that they are “prepared for war” if they’re told to leave. Participants in the continuing #OccupyCityHall sleep-in at City Hall on Centre Street are now preparing for an anticipated clash with police as an exit strategy similar to that of the Occupy Wall Street encampment in 2011. At that time, the protestors who took up residence in Zuccotti Park on Broadway and Liberty Street at that time were...

    [Barf Alert] Priest in NY church: ‘Christ is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer’ Fr. Rick Walsh July 2, 2020 (Sons of St. Joseph) — On June 28, 2020, Paulist priest Rick Walsh offered “a reflection” entitled “We All Belong to Each Other” at St. Paul the Apostle Catholic Church in New York City; the parish is the motherhouse of the Paulist order. On June 25, 2020, Walsh also was the “celebrant” for the parish’s Pride Mass sponsored by the Paulist’s LGBT ministry “Out at St. Paul. (OSP)” During his “reflection” Walsh said: Are they not aware…Christ is a woman… …Christ is Black In Christ, I...

    MAJOR VICTORY FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY: The Merits of the Case With the decision in Soos v. Cuomo, federal district Judge Gary L. Sharpe has removed religious gatherings from the virtual ghetto in which Governor Cuomo, his Attorney General and New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio had placed them under Cuomo’s crazy-quilt scheme of executive orders by which he is enforcing his increasingly indefensible, and in many applications patently ridiculous, COVID-19 lockdown. Before this decision, religious gatherings alone were confined to 25% of building capacity while secular businesses, manufacturing facilities, nonprofits, office environments of all kinds and even restaurants with permitted...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Milton Glaser, the groundbreaking graphic designer who adorned Bob Dylan’s silhouette with psychedelic hair and summed up the feelings for his native New York with “I (HEART) NY,” died Friday, his 91st birthday. **SNIP** In posters, logos, advertisements and book covers, Glaser’s ideas captured the spirit of the 1960s with a few simple colors and shapes. He was the designer on the team that founded New York magazine with Clay Felker in the late ’60s. **SNIP** The bold “I (HEART) NY” logo - cleverly using typewriter-style letters as the typeface - was dreamed up as part...

    Good news, sorta. Looks like we’ll have AOC to kick around for another two years. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez buried her Democratic primary challenger Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former CNBC reporter who tried to unseat the frosh Representative after her “fluke” election in 2018. After winning 72.6% of the vote in NY-14, Ocasio-Cortez wants her props for a “mandate”: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said her reported results of about 70% of the vote, which put her far ahead of challenger Michelle Caruso-Cabrera in the Democratic primary election, would be a ‘transformative’ mandate https://t.co/RNnk2PyljQ pic.twitter.com/m2HqKjIu2H— Reuters (@Reuters) June 24, 2020 When I won in...

    **SNIP** A deluge of mail-in ballots prompted by the coronavirus pandemic and slow-moving vote-counting procedures meant final results in many races would take days or more. That torturous wait seemed a preview of November, when numerous states will turn to mail-in voting like never before. Officials are already warning that uncertainty over who the next president is could linger for days. By late afternoon, there were scattered reports of long lines and absentee ballots that voters never received. Yet voting appeared less troubled than recent elections in Georgia and Nevada, where some people stood in line for hours. Waits lasting...

    I’m not a big fan of accusing people of cultural appropriation. If you want to eat a taco on Cinco de Mayo, have fun. If you like orange chicken, by all means, let’s do this thing. But there’s a difference between casual partaking of other cultures, which is one of the awesome things about America, and trying to appropriate the lived struggles of oppressed people for political and personal gain. That’s what makes Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez so insidious. Over and over, usually through the “people of color” canard, she’s tried to equalize her upper crust, pampered upbringing with those who...

    Shootings are surging this week in New York City, with 28 incidents and 38 victims reported since Monday — the day the NYPD disbanded its plainclothes anti-crime unit, The Post learned on Friday. By comparison, the same week last year there were only 12 shootings for the entire week. In the most recent reported shooting, at 4 p.m. Friday in East New York, Brooklyn, a 27-year-old man died of multiple gunshot wounds to his torso, face and leg in front of 640 Stanley Avenue. A 17-year-old boy who was also shot there was in stable condition, police said. “This is...
