NYC elite to get new neighbors, de Blasio plans homeless shelter smack in Billionaire’s Row from Conservative News Today » Feed by Jon Dougherty Fri May 28 2021 17:23:34 (CET) New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is planning to construct a homeless shelter in the midst of a ritzy Manhattan neighborhood that is home to many of the city’s wealthiest over the objections of residents and groups. The decision to move ahead with the project comes after an unsuccessful legal fight waged by a group of businesses and residents from the neighborhood near Central Part which is dubbed “Billionaire’s Row,” according to the Daily Mail. A New York state appeals court rejected residents’ and groups’ concerns over the project on Thursday. The Daily Mail notes that Billionaire’s Row isn’t just a single street or an officially designated area, but rather a region that is referred to by local real estate agents “as an area south of Central Park, between 57th Street and 59th Street from north to south, and stretching from 8th Avenue in the west for eight blocks east to 2nd Avenue.” Meanwhile, the iconic Trump Tower is located just to the south. Earlier, de Blasio, a Democrat with socialist leanings, established a program called “Turning the Tide,” which seeks to set up 90 shelters for homeless people throughout the city. One of the sites selected under the program is the old Park Savoy Hotel, which shut down for good in 2018. De Blasio said that he wants to house 140 men in the hotel’s 70 rooms, the Daily Mail notes, but his plan drew immediate criticism and pushback. One organization called The West 58th Street Coalition filed suit against New York City in 2018, arguing that the building is a fire hazard and is not well suited to become a homeless shelter. “This plan was never shared with anyone in our neighborhood, and our input not solicited,” the group said in a Change.org petition. “While we understand the need to shelter the city’s homeless, we believe that the Mayor’s Turning the Tide plan is deeply flawed.” The group went on to say that the mayor’s plan is just “an expensive band-aid that doesn’t come close to addressing the shortage of affordable housing,” noting the nine-year, $63 million cost, or $50,000 per person that could be spent on better alternatives. “Putting large groups of men together in shelter situations creates opportunities for conflict and crime, as opposed to an opportunity for men to have a place of their own with privacy and dignity,” the coalition said. What’s more, the old hotel only has one corridor to enter and exit, the lawsuit added, meaning that should fire break out, first responders would be blocked by escaping residents using the same stairwell. The suit went on to point out that since 1968, New York City’s building code has required at least two ways to get into and out of structures. To counter that, city officials noted that a grandfather clause built into statutes meant that buildings constructed before that year do not have to meet the requirement. “A judge dismissed the lawsuit in April 2019, noting that the issuance of a temporary certificate of occupancy meant the city’s Department of Buildings determined the structure was in compliance with local laws,” the Daily Mail added. Following the ruling, a spokesman for NYC’s Department of Homeless Services, Isaac McGinn, noted, “We look forward to opening our doors to hardworking neighbors in need at this location as soon as possible, and will continue to work with the community to ensure our clients are embraced and supported as neighbors.” But an appeals court reinstated the lawsuit in August 2019 and ordered additional hearings to determine if the old hotel is “consistent with general safety and welfare standards.” On Thursday, however, the higher court reversed the decision, saying the lower court exceeded its authority. The Savoy is located less than a block away from the nation’s most expensive piece of real estate — a penthouse purchased in 2019 by Ken Griffin, a billionaire hedge fund manager, for $238 million, the Daily Mail reported, adding that two more apartments in the property, which was built in 2015, are current for sale at a cost of tens of millions each.

General Flynn: COVID Was a ‘Weaponized Operation’ by China from -News Punch » Feed by Sean Adl-Tabatabai Fri May 28 2021 15:44:45 (CET) President Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn says he believes the coronavirus is a “weaponized operation” by China against the West. “We’ve had over a year of people all over the world having to answer tough questions,” Flynn said during an interview on 1320 AM WJAS. Flynn continued, “The people in this country are demanding answers. I believe we what we are going to find out is that this was a weaponized operation by the nation of China with some collaboration… with other countries.” Summit.news reports: While Flynn suggested that the outbreak was “some kind of attack,” he also stated that it could have “occurred mistakenly because of poor operational conditions inside these laboratories in China.” He also made it clear that he believes COVID is a real virus, and many older people have really died from it, countering leftist mainstream media claims that he believes the entire pandemic is completely ‘staged’. “We must demand from our government [to know] exactly what happened,” Flynn urged, adding that “we’ve had the entire country and the entire world shut down, people have lost their livelihoods and businesses… this has caused a massive shift in our entire society.” “The people of this country are not going to stand for just continuing to go down this road of these falsehoods and these lies about the origins of COVID,” Flynn asserted. Listen: As we reported earlier, Joe Biden has now claimed that he tasked the US Intelligence Community with looking into the origins of the pandemic in March, and has now again asked for a ‘redoubling’ of their efforts and a new report in 90 days. The development comes after the administration was slammed for shutting down a Trump State Department investigation. The lab leak theory has gained traction once again after a previously unseen US intelligence report revealed that at least three researchers working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where coronavirus experiments were being conducted, were hospitalised in mid November 2019 with symptoms matching those of COVID. Commenting on the revelations, David Asher, the State Department’s former lead investigator on the origins of the virus said it is “very doubtful that three people in highly protected circumstances” all became sick with “severe conditions all in the same week, and it didn’t have anything to do with the coronavirus.” Asher has previously said that the intelligence points to an involvement of the Chinese military conducting bioweapons research at the lab. Previous reports have suggested that the Wuhan Institute took a shipment of some of the world’s deadliest pathogens just weeks before the outbreak of the coronavirus. It is also known that the lab was tampering with natural pathogens and mutating them to become more infectious through ‘gain of function’ research. This is the ‘weaponisation’ that General Flynn is referring to. A deadly virus leak from a Chinese lab is not unprecedented. The SARS virus escaped twice from the Chinese Institute of Virology in Beijing in 2004, one year after its spread was brought under control.

#democratelectionfraud #stolenelection #democratcorruption #coverup According to Todd and reported by UncoverDC, Hursti previously indicated that he would need to reset the entire memory card because it was not possible to clear the counters. Upon seeing the machine’s audit report, Todd realized that was not true, and the memory card does not need to be deleted, as Hursti insisted. Windham vote auditor @HarriHursti, summing things up after two weeks of exhaustive & careful investigation: "Nothing today is showing evidence of fraud. Nothing today is showing evidence of digital manipulation of the machines." @WAuditors #NHPolitics via @AdamSextonWMUR — WMUR TV (@WMUR9) May 27, 2021 Looking further at the tape, Todd observed more damning evidence of potentially fraudulent activity. She said Hursti previously stated on record the machines need to be registered with the date of Nov. 3 for Windham’s forensic audit. However, as evident on line 43, before Hursti printed the reports from the machine, he changed the date to 11/5/20, which would have removed all of the algorithms in the device associated with 11/3/20. It is also possible, according to Settenbrino, to set the date at the top of the tape to 11/3/20 even though the date on line 43 is 11/5/20. Simply put, Nick Moseder summarized the smoking-gun discovery as follows: “Someone went in, reopened the election, and then closed it and back-dated it. What this proves—in theory—is ballot stuffing. Meaning, they can run through ballots after the election, close it down, and backdate it.” According to Todd and the others on the live video, it seems feasible that Harri Hursti and the other auditors are covering up for whoever tampered with the machines by setting the machines back to Nov. 3 and clearing memory cards.

#blackliesmatter #democratriots #democratlooting #democratviolence Angst and Anger Rock 'Station 19' After Breonna Taylor's Death Karen Townsend The penultimate episode of Season 4 of ABC’s Station 19 aired on May 27. In “Say Her Name,” the death of Breonna Taylor is the source of angst and anger among the firefighters and first responders. The crew is shown putting together bags for distribution at a medical booth they plan to set up at a BLM protest in Seattle. As they work, many sport t-shirts that read “19 For Black Lives.” Captain Maya Bishop (Danielle Savre) explains they cannot wear the shirts while working the booth at the protest, they have to wear them under their Seattle Fire Department uniform shirts. She also tells them she is trying to find a way to express the station’s support for the marchers without causing friction with department leadership. The firefighters are in full activist mode since the death of George Floyd and the protest marches began. Some of them begin retelling American history in a fashion that would make Howard Zinn proud. One said that policing began in America “with angry white guys using violence and intimidation” to prevent slaves from escaping. Another made a connection between the 13th Amendment and slavery. “Did you know the 13th Amendment abolished slavery except as punishment for a crime? Like, black people would get arrested, right, on, like, trumped up charges so they could get convicted and then used for free labor.” The point being made is that America was founded on racist grounds, as is taught in Critical Race Theory. Adding to the tension, Victoria Hughes’ (Barrett Doss) parents’ restaurant is set on fire by rioters. The firefighters have a longer than normal response time due to the streets being clogged by protesters. Her parents are brought outside to safety and Victoria becomes angry that they will not talk about the marches or riots or any of the drama in the streets. Her mother is white and her father is black. When the conversation is had, Victoria learns that her mother’s family disowned her when she married a black man. And Victoria’s mother talked about being the mom of a black daughter. Victoria sees herself in Breonna Taylor’s place – a black female first responder. Vic: What is all this? Lenya: Your accomplishments. Your professional accomplishments. The other stuff is over there. Vic: It's like my whole life's in here. I've never even seen some of these. Lenya: Well, how would you? You're hardly even here anymore, and when you are, you just grab your pierogies and go. And since your dad and I spend all this time without you, we brought as much of you as we could here. I watched an interview with Breonna Taylor's mother. Couldn't sleep for a week. I know I could never truly understand what it's like for you to navigate this world as a Black woman, and I wouldn't even pretend that I could. I've experienced even nothing remotely similar to this, but what I do understand is being the mother of a Black daughter. You don't think I know you could've been Breonna Taylor? I'm your mother. This is what I've always known. I've known since you were five, and a cashier accused you of stealing the candy, the one I just bought you. I've known since you were 11, coming home from school, crying because the girls at school wouldn't stop touching your hair. I've known since before you were even born, when my parents kicked me out of the family for marrying a Black man and refused to meet my perfect little girl. The media come to the scene and ask how Anthony and Lenya feel about rioters burning their business. Lenya absurdly says that it is worth losing the business to a fire if justice is served to those who kill black people. Even for this show, that was over the top. The season finale is next week. The crew at Station 19 has channeled their inner social justice warrior to forge a divide between cops and firefighters, as well as joined in on marching with BLM protesters so far this season. We’ll see how they top that to end the season. --Angst and Anger Rock 'Station 19' After Breonna Taylor's Death | Newsbusters --https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/karen-townsend/2021/05/27/angst-and-anger-rock-station-19-after-breonna-taylors-death -RETRIEVED-Fri May 28 2021 17:06:27 GMT+0200 (Central European Summer Time)
