he gets rid of the filibuster and expands our defiled Supreme Court.
As Michelangelo Signorile writes: “The Supreme Court has declared war.”
War on women, war on our judicial system, war on this country.
Btw, when is the sham investigation Christopher Wray and the FBI pretended to conduct into Brett Kavanaugh going to be reopened?
Bipartisanship doesn’t get its oily infrastructure deal if the American people don’t get their reconciliation bill.
Manchin is one of those old, white rich, selfish men governing this country with no interest whatsoever in making the planet habitable for the next generation.
Shame on him and his insulting confabs with the worst of them all, Sen. McConnell. Together they are plotting how to undermine Biden’s agenda.
The City Planning Commission has scheduled its hearing while New York City is out of town on vacation. It starts at 10 am and you can also speak by Zoom or send a written comment.
The Mayor’s upzoning plan will bring 100-story condos, big-box stores, and NYU dorms to these landmarked districts and their immediate environs. It is the end game for them and for adjoining Chinatown.
As always, the Mayor offers “affordable” housing as a putative compensation. Affordable for whom is never clarified by City Hall, since as it turns out what it deeems affordable is anything but for the people in New York City who are most hard hit by our housing crisis.
Furthermore, the plan is so riddled with loopholes that De Blasio’s developer friends won’t actually be forced to build any “affordable” housing at all.
The Mayor’s plan is an end game but also represents a precedent. City Planning Commission has brazenly announced that hey intend to upzone other historic districts provided that the City Council approves their plan.
What the plan represents as well is a stealth attack on the landmarked status of these districts. Not only will low-rise, rent-stabilized buildings on the outskirts of the landmarked perimeters be demolished, but buildings within the districts as well. For De Blasio’s intention to punch holes in historic landmarked districts is proceeding apace.
The NYC Landmarks “Preservation” Commission is permitting the demolition of two brownstones on lower Fifth Avenue, located within the Greenwich Village Historic District, each containing rent-regulated apartment units. This follows the demolition of rent-regulated buildings on East 11th St.
Biden seems to be taking a leaf from Obama’s book as he refuses to go to the mat for voting rights. Remember how often we heard that Obama just couldn’t do anything about whatever issue he’d campaigned on — Congress was too mean.
Really, the president doesn’t have that much power; he’s sort of like the monarchy in Great Britain.
Mayor De Blasio has mounted the most ferocious attack on landmark preservation in this city since the landmarks law was enacted in 1965.
has appointed itself the unelected rulers of this country.
Roberts shot the bolt on incrementalism with the latest blatantly partisan rulings.
The Court must be expanded. NOW. BIDEN MUST STOP GIVING LIP SERVICE AND START ACTING.
Now the miserable gray malevolence is telling us he prays for Fashion Forward and Coal Slurry to “do the right thing.”
Twitter has clear rules about ban evasion, which the powers-that-be at Twitter are now defiantly and explicitly ignoring, so that banned Trump can still ventilate his toxicity via freaky shill Liz Harrington’s account.
is brilliantly exposed by Australian public television in a new two-part special.
How stupid do the Republicans think we are?
As stupid as Marsha Blackburn? Ron Johnson?
