Once Upon A Time in Milan (Out New Yorker-ing the New Yorker)

The New Yorker explored Benedetta briefly here.

Of course we went a few layers deeper.

DISGRACEFUL

The NYC City Planning Commission, a developer’s advocacy group fronting as a municipal agency, has no facts on its side, and therefore must resort to defamation:

The mayor’s sham Soho/Noho rezoning plan, will DISENCITIVZE building affordable housing in these neighborhoods, result in rampant destruction of rent-regulated units, and likely put 100-story buildings in those neighborhoods. The plan has been exposed by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation and other tenant advocacy and neighborhood preservation groups. The Planning Commission’s response is to launch ad hominem attacks against these organizations.

GVSHP has requested that Borough President Brewer, Councilmembers Margaret Chin and Carlina Rivera, and Speaker Corey Johnson–the officials whose approval is needed for the scam to go through–condemn the disgusting personal attacks by City Planning.

To date, not a word from these elected officials.

CORPORATE MEDIA BLAMES PELOSI FOR THE GOP’S SABOTAGE

As Brian Beutler tweets:

“They all know Cheney’s on the committee, that Republicans killed the bipartisan commission and that their attacks on the committee’s findings are pretextual. They can’t make that the basis of their reporting because it’d mean placing GOP bad-faith dealing under scrutiny.”

BIDEN JUST KISSED OFF MOST OF HIS AGENDA

The epiphany by Republicans that the president assured us would manifest once Trump was out of office has failed to materialize. Instead they are worse than ever, engaged in lockstep obstruction in complete subservience to the fiendish Mitch McConnell.

Yes, as Biden just noted, the Republicans do know better about voting rights, but that does not mean for one second that they intend to reform.

Biden seems in complete denial. He also seems like a compliant mouthpiece for McConnell’s own hooey about the alleged danger of filibuster reform. McConnell has now brought two Democratic presidents to heel.

As Biden’s legislative agenda slips beyond reach or retrieval due to the GOP’s abuse of the filibuster, one can only wonder if complete cognitive dissonance will take over.

IT’S NOT THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET THAT’S AT STAKE

The planet will survive in some mutated form no matter what.

It’s the future of humanity that’s at stake, as we destroy our planet’s ability to sustain the existence of many species, most notably ours.

GOP HOLDING AMERICA HOSTAGE — ONE MORE TIME

Let the GOP stick up America and refuse to approve the debt ceiling hike unless they can steal America’s earned benefits.

Let them.

And then explain to America exactly who ambushed them.

GOP PLAYING THE SAME GAME THEY PLAYED WITH OBAMA ON HEALTHCARE

Delay, delay, delay, and then find excuses to blow up the whole disastrously bipartisan infrastructure thing.

Why is President Biden allowing his party and his country to get played all over again?

When he is he going to grow up?

FAUCI SHOULD SUE MARJORIE TAYLOR PSYCHO FOR DEFAMATION

It’s only lawsuits or the prospect of lawsuits that’s turned the tide for some of Fox “News” personalities who have now decided to endorse vaccination.

But not Carlson or Ingraham–they’re too arrogant and sadistic. Their hatred for America and their depraved indifference to human life will be subdued only when a Murdoch reads them the riot act.

DR. FAUCI FINALLY TELLS SEN. BEDDOES LAFFOON TO STUFF IT

I mean, even Bert Lahr at his cross-dressing greatest could not have produced more ludicrous a spectacle than that of Sen. Paul, in his smarmy, syrupy, poisonous voice, trying to blame Dr. Fauci for COVID.

TED CRUZ MOCKS THE HOLOCAUST

Sen. Cruz demonstrates the complete moral and patriotic vacuum of the current Republican party by equating extinguishers-of-life Nazi stormtroopers with protection-of-life vaccine suppliers.

When will Cruz put on his “Camp Auschwitz” T-shirt?
That would be more honest.

BIDEN WAVES THE WHITE FLAG ON PASSING VOTER PROTECTIONS

The patchwork of cute little half-measures he offered in his speech in Philadelphia were perfectly charming and are completely inadequate. He is simply not willing to expend political capital on protecting democracy.

Biden thus all but ensures Democratic losses in 2022 and 2024 and a takeover by the American Fascist Party.

We need new leadership in the Democratic party.
