‘CITY OF THE WALKING DEAD:’ JUNKIES SHOOT UP IN BROAD DAYLIGHT IN MIDTOWN, NYC:
The Garment District is Gotham’s newest shooting gallery, a disturbing heroin hotspot of addicts booting up in broad daylight. The outgoing de Blasio administration appears unwilling or unable to address the crisis, as the quality-of-life disaster unfolds just steps from high-profile Midtown landmarks such as Macy’s, Madison Square Garden and the sparkling new Moynihan Train Hall. The block bordered by 35th and 36th streets, and Seventh and Eighth Avenues, is “littered with used needles, broken glass crack pipes, trash, urine, and feces” as junkies shoot up and dealers brazenly sell drugs, lamented one neighbor on social media. “I’ve personally seen dozens of deals go down. I’ve seen a person OD and nearly die.”
During a single walk around the block last week, sources witnessed three different people injecting needles in their wrists or fingers in the middle of the afternoon. Each addict sat on the sidewalk or in empty storefronts. Dozens of other junkies sat or lay nearly comatose, many of the men shirtless, on the same block. “We are appalled and disgusted by the drug use and other illicit behaviors that are taking place on our sidewalks in Midtown Manhattan and throughout New York City,” Garment District Alliance President Barbara Blair told The Post. “We have been fighting to put an end to this crisis, however our city officials have unfortunately failed to address the problem and have allowed this public disorder to continue.”
School Board Squirms As Mom Reads Them The Gay Porn In Books Available To Students:
WARNING: This article contains strong language and content
A Virginia mom found that books graphically depicting pedophilia were in her child’s school as part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion — so she read from them, verbatim, to the school board. The school board’s reaction was ironic: It silenced her, citing that there were children in the room. “After seeing a September 9th school board meeting in Texas on pornography in schools, I decided to check the titles at my child’s high school, Fairfax High School. The books were available, and we checked them out. Both of these books include pedophilia, sex between men and boys,” Stacy Langton said, holding two books. “The illustrations include fellatio, sex toys, masturbation, and violent nudity.”
Then she read from them: “I can’t wait to have your c*** in my mouth. I am going to give you the blowjob of your life, and then I want you inside me.” “What if I told you I touched another guy’s d***? What if I told you I sucked it? I was ten years old, but it’s true. I sucked Doug Goble’s d***, the real estate guy, and he sucked mine too.” “This is not an oversight at Fairfax High School—” she said, when one school member made a motion indicating that her mic should be cut, and another board member cut her off. “I’m sorry, there are children in the audience here,” the board member said. The mother did not back down. “Do not interrupt my time! I will stand here until my time is restored and my time is finished. These books are in stock and available in the libraries …” The school board interrupted her again, saying “For high school students, ma’am!”
Shaq Denounces Celebrity Status: ‘Celebrities Are Going Freaking Crazy And I Don’t Want To Be One’:
Former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal no longer wants to be considered a celebrity in light of “crazy” things that many celebrities are doing in today’s world and how they treat people. “These celebrities are going freaking crazy and I don’t want to be one. I denounce my celebrity-ness today. I’m done with it,” O’Neal said. “I don’t want to be in that category. Celebrities are crazy, they really are. Don’t call me that anymore. These people are out of their freaking mind with how they treat people, what they do, what they say. That’s never been me. I never want to be looked at like that.” Since retiring from the NBA, O’Neal has focused on helping others and is known for performing random acts of kindness. The report highlighted one such instance when O’Neal bought a stranger an engagement ring at a jewelry store. “I went in there to get some loop earrings and I seen the guy and he was just so shy and he was saying [to the cashier], ‘Hey, how much do I owe to pay off the ring?’ I said, ‘My man, how much is the ring?’” O’Neal said, later adding that the kind gesture “is just something I do every day.”
Marvel Studios Could Drop The ‘Men’ From ‘X-Men’ Over Concerns Title Is Not ‘Inclusive’: Report:
They are some of the most recognizable names in the Marvel cinematic universe (even if they aren’t necessarily part of the MCU itself just yet), but the X-Men are now under criticism from Marvel Studios’ new president of Physical, Post Production, VFX, and Animation, Victoria Alonso for having a non-inclusive team moniker. According to the entertainment outlet, We Got This Covered https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/marvel-studios-may-drop-the-men-from-x-men/, Alonso did an interview with the sci-fi and film YouTube program, Nuke the Fridge, where she “hinted that internal thinking is that the name ‘X-Men’ isn’t sufficiently inclusive. “I don’t know where the future is going. It’s funny that people call it the X-Men, there’s a lot of female superheroes in that X-Men group, so I think it’s outdated,” she said. Alonso quickly segued into a discussion of non-movie Marvel universe expansions, but the quote seems to link up with earlier reports that MCU primary, Kevin Feige, wanted to bring the cinematic universe into line with the comic books, which have trended “woke” in recent years. Alonso also seems to be a driving force behind pushing the MCU in a more “woke” direction, recently promoting a decision to make perpetual villain Loki “gender fluid.” But while Marvel could claim the shift is related to a more “progressive” approach to the characters and the MCU as a whole, it is more likely that a new “woke” X-Men (or X-Persons) would solve issues related to pulling a group of characters who already have a successful movie franchise of their own into a more expansive universe of films.
131 Judges Broke Law by Overseeing Cases With Conflict of Interest: Report:
More than 130 judges have reportedly presided over court cases in which they had a financial conflict of interest, according to a new investigation by the Wall Street Journal. The newspaper found that since 2010, 685 court cases were presided over by judges who should have recused themselves, and two-thirds of the judges who participated in those cases made judgments that were in their own or their family’s financial interest. When the Journal reached out to the judges who had violated the law by failing to recuse themselves, 56 of them notified parties in lawsuits in which they should have disclosed their conflict of interest. Many of the judges claimed they were unaware of any conflict and expressed contrition, while others declined to comment. Several parties that lost their court battles are now petitioning to reopen their cases — this time with a judge who has no financial ties and follows the 1974 law that bans judges from hearing cases where they have a “legal or equitable interest, however small.”

New Hunter Biden Emails Tout Access To White House, China
Two new emails concerning Hunter Biden appear to show business associates of the president’s son touting his access to the White House as well as to the “highest level” of the Chinese government. The emails concern a potential Libya deal in 2015 that appears to have never happened. The messages are not connected to previously revealed emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop. The first email, dated January 28, 2015, was an exchange between two Democratic donors, Sam Jauhari and Sheikh Mohammed al-Rahbani, who were both involved in the Libya project, which involved billions in Libyan assets that the Obama administration froze. “Per phone conversation I met with #2 son. He wants $2 per year retainer +++ success fees. He wants to hire his own people – it can be close circle of people for confidentiality. His dad is deciding to run or not,” Jauhari wrote, speaking about Hunter Biden. The “$2 per year retainer” referred to the $2 million a year Hunter Biden had requested. His father was vice president at the time.

Hundreds of Female Afghan Judges in Hiding After Taliban Frees Convicted Murderers, Rapists:
Hundreds of female Afghan judges have been forced into hiding as members of the Taliban and other convicted criminals seek revenge for being sent away to prison. “I have received more than 20 threatening phone calls from former inmates who have now been released,” one woman, identified only as Judge Sanaa, told the BBC. With many of her cases involving ISIS and Taliban fighters, she said she is now hiding out with more than a dozen relatives. Drilling home the severity of the threat, a male relative was reportedly attacked by Taliban fighters who showed up at the judge’s home looking for her.
Another imperiled judge, who said she had convicted hundreds of men over the years, some for rape and murder, told the BBC she was hit with a barrage of death threats after the Taliban took over her city. “It was midnight when we heard the Taliban had freed all the prisoners from jail. Immediately we fled. We left our home and everything behind,” Judge Masooma was quoted saying. “Sometimes I think: What is our crime? Being educated? Trying to help women and punish criminals?” In addition to six female judges who spoke to the BBC from secret locations, more than 200 others are also said to be in hiding and desperately looking for an escape.
*EXAMINER – (NOTABLE) REMARKS:
The upshot is that we need a big jolt to heal the nation, but every plank should be about building a society in which if you work hard you will get ahead. We should ditch provisions like Medicare expansion and double down on pre-K, community colleges, infrastructure, green energy jobs and the child tax credit. The theme should not be cradle-to-grave security. It should be giving people an open field and fair chance to be better capitalists, pioneers of their own destinies. America will reverse decline with a measure that is progressive in its scope and moderate in its values. —– David Brooks

‘Survivor’ Host Asks Contestants If Saying ‘Come On In, Guys’ Is Still ‘Okay’
“Survivor” host Jeff Probst kicked off the newest season of the classic reality television show by asking contestants whether he should retire one of his trademark phrases or not in order to make the show more inclusive. “We need your guidance on something,” Probst announced to the 18 contestants on Season 41, the first “Survivor” season filmed since the pandemic began. “For 20 years I have used one phrase to call people in for challenges,” Probst said. “Come on in, guys!” the contestants shouted, some smiling and laughing. “Come on in, guys,” Probst agreed. “Love saying it, it’s part of the show, but I, too, want to be of the moment. So my question to you to decide for us: In the context of ‘Survivor,’ is a word like ‘guys’ okay, or is it time to retire that word?”

Failed presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr. celebrated his impending freedom from court-ordered medication and therapy sessions in a low-key fashion. Hinckley, 66, spent nearly 90 minutes inside an office building in Williamsburg, Va., where he was photographed walking through the parking lot after getting out of a silver Toyota Avalon sedan. The would-be killer of then-President Ronald Reagan clutched a baby-blue, surgical-style mask and wore an untucked, short-sleeve, plaid button-down shirt over his portly frame, along with a blue baseball cap, navy slacks and black, orthopedic-style shoes.
WHAT’S UP BY SARAH GARCIA
Unintended consequences often lead to crushing reality. When we do something that doesn’t work out (job, marriage, investment) there is usually hell to pay, as the cliche goes. That’s where President Biden finds himself on Afghanistan. The botched US withdrawal will haunt him the rest of his days and will hurt America in a variety of ways.
