De Blasio voted for
luxury building ‘poor door’

New York Post, by Yoav Gonen

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/29/2014 9:59:53 AM

Mayor Bill de Blasio and other officials denouncing “poor door” entrances for subsidized tenants in luxury buildings actually voted in favor of a measure that made such separation possible, a Post review found. When the lengthy text of a zoning resolution was amended by the City Council in July 2009, then-Councilman de Blasio — who arrived late to the meeting — was among the majority who voted “Aye.” One provision said developers of market-rate condos could include affordable units on site, instead of off site, while allowing for the separation of a number of services that included the entrances.

Comments:
De Blasio was for it before he was against it, and now blames his predecessor, "Republican" Mike Bloomberg.

Separately, the issue of separate doors for paying customers and those enjoying set-aside apartments illustrates the folly of forced co-mingling of different people in the same building, neighborhood, etc. This is a hot topic in London too; seems no one wants The Poor doing what they do in their elevators, lobbies, swimming pools, etc.

When you consider what the defecrats have done for Blacks over the past 100 years this is not difficult to understand. Deliberately ruining the Black family for political gain and greed greased with "benefits" is the most racist action in history! Why wouldn´t they segregate the poor from the rich? They´ve been the biggest promoters of segragation for over a century. They are masters of it!

Apparently, the builders of these luxury buildings fear commingling the apartments will cause the wealthy buyers not to buy.

In addition, these wealthy buildings have luxurious amenities such as gyms, pools, etc. There has been concern that the costs of those amenities would not be supported by the low-level "poor" apartment rents, and to offer them to the occupants of those apartments would also create a problem with New York City´s draconian rent-stablization laws.

The liberals have had an end result in mind for those luxury apartment buildings from the get-go that have subsidized housing for the poor built within them. But as the article points out, they have had to use incremental steps to get to their end result, in order to fool prospective builders, who would not be able to sell their luxury apartments to the rich and famous if the prospective paying apartment owners recognized they were to be co-mingled at the entrance to, and inside the buildings with the great subsidized unwashed of New York City.

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports.

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and b***h about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs! It
