Meet the NY women who weren’t good
enough for Chirlane McCray’s monument

She was America’s first saint, a tireless advocate who founded an upstate orphanage, a school for girls in Washington Heights and 67 organizations for the needy in the late 1880s. But she wasn’t good enough to be named one of New York’s seven most important women. Francesca Xavier Cabrini and other female icons were denied honorary statues after a group controlled by First Lady Chirlane McCray tossed out the revered Catholic sister in favor of more women of color and a drag queen-turned-LGBTQ activist.(Snip) “The whole process was a charade,” said Harriet Senie, who served on the panel that weighed the poll results

Comments:

Only one of the seven women selected by Bill DeBlasio's crooked black lesbian wife was white, two were mentally ill men posing as women, and none of them were among the esteemed list of top finishers selected in a sham poll of New Yorkers.

I just don't know what to say about this. I mean, it's what we expect from dhimmicrats and 'women of color' these days, but the sheer pettiness is just stupefying. I'm going to go have a stiff drink and think about migrating to Venezuela or something.

Five million in taxpayers' dollars for this project. De Blasio and his entitled spouse are giving the Obamas some stiff competition in the entitled so-and-sos category.

Sham poll is right. I'm in NY, never heard of it. Billie Holiday only one of the chosen group who deserves to be there. But outside of Queens Boro Hall? No, more like 52nd (Swing) Street.

Based on what I see in the black community, I am not surprised. Obola started something in this country and we haven't seen the worst yet. Last year,I told someone in the community "All I expect when I come here is fair, equal and honest and so far, it hasn't happened. "

If McCray never saw anyone that represented her, perhaps it's because those that represent her never contributed anything worthwhile to American society. Most of these women (and men) certainly didn't.

fta: "McCray made it clear from the beginning what she wanted. "Growing up as an African-American woman, I didn’t see anyone who represented me in media or popular culture, even though women make incredible contributions,” she told NBC." If she is so concerned about positive role models, I'd think encouraging husbands/fathers to live in homes with their own wives and children would be far more influential and important to the development of said minority children than some overpriced statues in obscure locations.

Obviously it was meant to be a statute of the mentally ill and perverts, representing de Blasio's base.

Did Nikki Haley recruit the Mooch to “the resistance?” Over the weekend, fleeting Trump comms chief Anthony Scaramucci forcefully broke up with President Donald Trump in interviews and on Twitter, comparing the president to a nuclear reactor on the verge of a meltdown, and suggested the GOP may need to run a candidate against him in 2020. He followed it up with a tweet saying, “To those asking, ‘what took so long?’ You’re right. I tried to see best in [Trump] based on private interactions and select policy alignment. But his increasingly divisive rhetoric—and damage it’s doing to [the] fabric of our society—outweighs any short-term economic gain.”

The state is doing its part to distribute emergency bottled water to Newark residents with old lead pipes and now it’s time for the federal government to help, a top New Jersey official said Monday. Responding to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s recommendation that Newark hand out bottled water, the state urged the federal agency to help pay for the program.(Snip) The federal government made the request after new sampling showed filters meant to remove lead weren’t working in two of three tested homes. More than 38,000 filters have been distributed in the city to temporarily abate the lead water crisis that began in 2017.

Hurricane season may be more turbulent than usual with as many as nine severe storms expected to hit the US this year, according to experts. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned Thursday that “above-normal hurricane activity” has been predicted for hurricane season, which will run until Nov. 30. In the forecast, five to nine hurricanes are expected to hit stateside, with at least two of those classified as “major hurricanes.” There are also 10 to 17 named storms—which have winds of 39 miles per hour or greater—anticipated for the region. On average during the season, there are 12 named storms,

Hillary Clinton operatives fed the FBI false information on President Trump and his aides in the months following his election, according to an analysis of an FBI agent’s interview with a key conduit. The agent’s interview notes (known as 302s) of Bruce Ohr, then an associate deputy attorney general in the Department of Justice, were obtained by the conservative investigative group Judicial Watch. “These new Bruce Ohr FBI 302s show an unprecedented and irregular effort by the FBI, DOJ, and State Department to dig up dirt on President Trump using the conflicted Bruce Ohr, his wife, and the Clinton/DNC spies at Fusion GPS,”

Mayor Bill de Blasio pitched his presidential dreams to a crowd of about 15 likely Democratic voters at an event Sunday morning in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. With more than enough empty space to accommodate his 6-foot-5 frame, the quixotic candidate took the floor at Parlor City Pub to a smattering of applause from the sleepy brunch set. “Everything should be about our families, our lives, what everyday people are going through, what working people are going through,” de Blasio told the crowd, which numbered around 15—not counting the press corps, campaign staff and Iowa State Sen. Rob Hogg, the event organizer.

President Trump’s Hamptons supporters have gone underground. While Trump attended two big-money fundraisers for the Republican Party and his 2020 re-election campaign at mansions in Southampton and Bridgehampton on Friday, many of his East End supporters are eschewing the spotlight—specially after last week’s calls for boycotts of billionaire Stephen Ross’ gyms because he hosted the president.(Snip) “People have really strong opinions here and if you go around wearing a MAGA hat, you really need to fear physical violence,” he said, adding the anti-Trump aggression comes mostly from summer residents.

During their medals ceremonies at the sports festival in Lima, fencer Race Imboden took a knee and hammer thrower Gwen Berry raised her fist. Both athletes could represent the U.S. less than a year from now at the Tokyo Olympics, where similar protests would be seen by a much wider audience. “Racism, gun control, mistreatment of immigrants, and a president who spreads hate are at the top of a long list” of America’s problems, Imboden said

"The power to tax is the power to destroy." -John Marshall, 4th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential contender Liz Warren wants to tax us gun owners back to the Stone Age, as a part of her radical gun control agenda, revealed this weekend. If elected, Warren promises to raise taxes on firearms and ammo purchases by 30% and 50%, respectively. That's on top of her plan for federal licensing for gun ownership -- presumably with a federal database of who owns what -- expanded background checks, and a renewed ban on "assault-style" weapons.

Here are a few things I know firsthand about being in jail. First and foremost, you have virtually no control over your life and surroundings. You can’t get so much as an aspirin without authorization. In most jails, you can’t wear a belt, or shoelaces, or keep a razor in your cell. You have no privacy, no sense of dignity, and no rights. And in a well-run jail, high-profile prisoners have virtually no chance of killing themselves. So the alleged suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, the 66-year-old financier with powerful American and foreign friends who was about to stand trial for allegedly sexually abusing dozens of girls, many of them underage,

Ghislaine Maxwell was last night reported to be ready to co-operate with the American authorities in their ongoing investigation into Prince Andrew’s late friend Jeffrey Epstein. The socialite daughter of the disgraced late media tycoon Robert Maxwell has been accused of recruiting underage girls for the financier Epstein, her benefactor and sometime boyfriend. She has even been described as the ‘madam of the house’ by a former housekeeper at Epstein’s mansion in Palm Beach, Florida. Hitherto, she has always emphatically denied misconduct. Thomas Volscho, an associate professor of sociology at the City University of New York who is writing a book about the Epstein case, said that Miss Maxwell

McAuliffe said Trump’s “acts of division and racism” appear to show his political strategy is to attract “neo-Nazis and white supremacists.” “I think it’s highly highly unlikely that Trump wins,” McAuliffe told host John Catsimatidis. “He can’t get above 40, 42%. These actions of division and racism that he talks about – I guess his political strategy, John, is that there are a lot of neo-Nazis and white supremacists that didn’t come out in [2016] and he’s going to get

If there was ever any doubt about the depth and extent of the deep-state coup against both candidate and President Donald J. Trump and the number of deep-state actors attempting to thwart the will of the American people, it vanished with the release of partially redacted copies of former Deputy Atty. Gen. Bruce Ohr’s FBI 302 reports (interview summaries) on Thursday evening obtained by Judicial Watch. They confirm that Bruce Ohr and his wife Nellie were not merely passive conduits for the fraudulent Steele Dossier but were active participants in the plot to deny Trump the presidency.
