AND this is what is wrong with Jamaica and why Jamaica will continue to go down hill and the quality of life which just get worse. AND this is also what is wrong with the Queens Democratic Machine, they don’t care about communities (well at least certain communities) and their constituents. When corrupt Ruben Wills (City Council District #28) was on trial for corruption, Congressman Gregory Meeks and the crooked Queens Democratic Machine still backed him. Now that Wills is heading to prison, all of a sudden the Machine needed a new puppet to throw into the mix, which several folks were already candidates for the seat. City Council District 28 Richard David, Democrat Allan W. Jennings, Democrat Hettie V. Powell, Democrat Christina Winslow, Democrat BUT see the crooked Queens Democratic Machine does not want competition or fresh blood, they want puppets to control and so they are plopping up Community Board 12 President Adrienne Adams. I mean why did Adams NOT throw her name into the hat before, knowing full well that Wills has been a total do-nothing and fraud. NO, they wait till their other puppet, Wills, got convicted and then scrambled for a replacement puppet. This is the same bull with Adams and the Machine that happened last year, when she ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary, whom the Machine did not back. She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to go against Gregory Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November. So now we have the similar bull playing all over again. Adams stated: “Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.” BUT ADRIENNE, if you wanted to represent the people, why didn’t you put your name in the hat, when crooked and do nothing Wills was on the ballot and was not on trial yet. See, this does not bode well and sounds way too “political”. If you have such best interests in the community, why didn’t you put your name on the ballot then. BECAUSE you did not want to go against that crooked Queens Dem Machine, who was backing Wills at the time. Crowley stated” “The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community. Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.” BUT when do nothing and crooked Wills was still on the ballot, you backed him Crowley, you did not put up Adams, so Crowley, YOU and the CROOKED QUEENS DEM MACHINE do not have the best interests of the community or the constituents (which look at what Jamaica looks like, that tells the REAL STORY), because if you really did, you would NEVER have backed the incumbent Wills from the get go, knowing full well he had DONE NOTHING for the community and his past was extremely shady. Now while I feel that Adams really does care about this community and wants to do everything she can to help improve it, this whole thing smells too much of typical politics where the community and constituents take a backseat so that the Queens Dem Machine can always stay in power and keep new and fresh blood out of the picture, while they CONTROL ALL. THAT IS NOT DEMOCRACY. You are just taking a page out of the playbook of the person you all constantly criticize, TRUMP. AND so the Jamaica clown car circus and good ole boys club continues while the Jamaica community continues to suffer and quality of life in this community continues its down-slide. BUT people in that district, you still have the FINAL SAY SO. Don’t let the bully Queens Democratic Machine dictate for you. It did not work last time and Sanders won his seat by a large margin. AND I will say this to Senator James Sanders, Jr., at least he does not bow down to the Queens Democratic Machine. Sanders is actually endorsing Hettie Powell, going against the machine again. Good for him. BOY, the stench of MENDACITY fills the community of Jamaica and the Queens Borough. In the meantime, crime is still rampant, the community is looking like "homeless village thanks to over 26 homeless shelters dumped here, Royal Waste Dump, in the downtown area, continue to pollute and cause major truck issues, our parks have turned into outdoor homeless shelters while the crazies, mentally ill, drug addicts and criminals roam the streets posing safety risks (the horrific gang rape of a mother of two this months proves this), continuous illegal truck driving on residential streets, garbage & litter on every single block and the quality of life, which has gotten worse in the last 6 months continues to go down hill. In the meantime, the Queens Dem Machine plays a deadly game of political chess where the tax payers are the pawns. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/




Senator Leroy Comrie found time to speak out about hateful graffiti in Holliswood, an area whose demographics tend to be Sikhs, Muslims and Jews, BUT yet has not yet spoken out about a 15 year old girl who was pimped out by Joseph Gilbert (from your neighborhood of St. Albans), for four months at Rev. Floyd Flake’s Greater Allen Cathedral Senior Residence in your district (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/11-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-plus-some-new-info-arises/). Not to make light of hate graffiti, but no one was hurt at least physically by this act, but what do you think that 15 year old black girl went through for four months at Flake’s Greater Allen Cathedral Senior Residence. Doesn’t she at least rate somewhat to have you or any other local elected official or community leader speak out on her behalf and also to speak of the large number of underage girls of color in the Jamaica/SE Queens area who have been forced into prostitution. Sounds like you are playing favorites. OH, WAIT, you are up for reelection and the Sikhs, Muslims and Jews vote, but this 15 year old black girl does not. OK, I get it. AND so identity politics still continues with the Democrats in Jamaica and SE Queens. NOW, black residents of Jamaica, WHY do you continue to vote for this ebony version of Star Wars’ Jabba the Hutt. He does not even have the decency to make a comment about a young 15 year old black girl forced into prostitution at the almighty Rev. Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence, but he found time to wobble over to Holliswood to speak out on hate graffiti. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/











Wonderful article! We are linking to this great post on our website. Keep up the good writing. http://www.yourlawyer.com/new-york





If u don't have anything nice to say about Ass. Member Clark and other Pols, than pass on saying anything at all, u BIGOT CREEP!!!

Condolences to the family and friends of Assembly Member Barbara Clark. Of course praises are coming in from hacks like Public Advocate Letitia James and Senator Leroy Comrie, both who called her a "mentor". If this mentor produced hacks like James and Comrie, then that says much about her mentoring then. Remember that Shirley Huntley was a mentor to James Sanders and Ruben Wills. ENOUGH SAID. Dead or alive, Southeast Queens pols are just hacks in a f**ked up corrupted system. I am sure the hacks are already in line put together by the a-hole Democratic machine to fill the position with one of their lackeys. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/



May he be skinned alive in prison. Absolutely NO ONE will hear him scream. Hope they also catch up with the dirtbag pigs who assaulted the young woman.



Nothing like finally doing something about cancer when it reaches the 4th stage and you knew from the beginning but choose not to do anything. That is pretty much how elected leaders react in Southeast Queens and Jamaica. For years, hell decades, every imaginable thing has been dumped into Queens from poisonous waste facilities to homeless shelters, but yet it seemed very little was done from our elected leaders including folks like Archie Spignor, Leroy Comrie, Gregory Meeks, Vivian Cook and Williams Scarborough. They all had or have been in office for decades while the community was pretty much a dumping ground for all kind of shit. Now at least one, Councilman Miller, wants to do something, but isn't it a little late after all this s**t has been dumped and the community has been turned into alow-class and poisonous ghetto. Don't nip a problem in the bud from the get go, wait till it festers and becomes 4th stage cancer. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/


I live on a dead-end block in Whitestone. With the possibility of no snow plow on my block. we all joined together on the block and actually shoved the block. Lo and behold, in the wee hours of the morning, a plow went through the block. It was actually worse. I ended up with a pile of snow in front of my driveway. The plows they use are very old fashioned. All they do is push the snow around, and you end up with huge mountains that never melt. They should use the type of plows they got in Russia. After it plows, the snow is sucked up. There's plenty of water around to dump the snow.



Very nice Congrats Barry!
