Crowds come out in force for Bernie Sanders’ comeback rally in Queens

Sanders supporters who were interviewed emphasized — as did filmmaker Michael Moore and Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner, who took the stage before Sanders — that it was Sanders who transformed Democratic politics by drawing masses of voters to the progressive agenda in 2016, when it initially was written off.

“When I say there is no one like Bernard Sanders, I mean that,” Turner said. “We’ve got some people in the mainstream and neoliberal media who really can’t see the difference.”

Giuliani Scrubs Facts To Defend His Risky Placement Of NYC’s Emergency Command Center

(29.01.2008)

On CNN’s American Morning today, host John Roberts asked former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani about recent revelations by the New York Times that said as mayor he ignored a “1998 police department memo” saying that it would be a bad idea to place the New York City emergency command center at Seven World Trade Center. The memo called the location — which collapsed on 9/11 — “a poor choice” with “significant points of vulnerability.”

Giuliani defended himself, saying he made the “choice,” but adding that “there were pros and cons for all of the sites”:

Each site had a series of pros, a series of cons. And the reality is, 7 World Trade Center was also the home of the CIA, the Secret Service, it was a logical place to put it for the transfer of information.

What Happened at the Stonewall Riots? A Timeline of the 1969 Uprising

Most gay bars and clubs in New York at the time (including the Stonewall) were operated by the Mafia, who paid corruptible police officers to look the other way and blackmailed wealthy gay patrons by threatening to “out” them.

Police raids on gay bars were common, but on that particular night, members of the city’s LGBT community decided to fight back—sparking an uprising that would launch a new era of resistance and revolution.

50 Jahre Stonewall-Razzien: „Wir mussten uns wehren“

Boyce war 1969 regelmäßig im Stonewall Inn, eine der Bars im New Yorker Greenwich Village, in der sich die Homo- und Transsexuellen trafen. Ständig mussten sie mit Razzien der Polizei rechnen, Verhaftungen und Erniedrigungen. So auch in der Nacht zum 28. Juni. Doch diesmal wehrten sich die Gäste des Stonewall Inns und drängten die Polizei gewaltsam zurück.

Das Besondere in dieser Nacht an der Christopher Street, erinnert sich Boyce, war der plötzliche Zusammenhalt gegen Polizeiwillkür:

Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks

(17.05.2019)

The FBI presence at the Urban Moving Systems search site drew the attention of the local media and was later reported on both television and in the local press. A former Urban Moving Systems employee later contacted the Newark Division with information indicating that he had quit his employment with Urban Moving Systems as a result of the high amount of anti-American sentiment present among Urban’s employees. The former employee stated that an Israeli employee of Urban had even once remarked, “Give us twenty years and we’ll take over your media and destroy your country” (page 37 of the FBI report).

Wie es scheint, mag man den brasilianischen Präsidenten Jair Bolsonaro in New York nicht sehr, denn auf Grund der heftigen Kritik und des schweren Drucks musste er die Reise in diese Stadt absagen, wo er die Ehrung der Handelskammer Brasilien-USA erhalten sollte.

Bush zusammentreffen und am Donnerstag die Auszeichnung Persönlichkeit des Jahres 2019 erhalten wird, die ihm im April von besagter Handelskammer verliehen worden war, die ihn auch zu einem Galadiner in New York eingeladen hatte.

Eugène Delacroix – Romantischer Maler im Metropolitan Museum in New York

Er war zu allen Zeiten ein kompromissloser Kritiker von Pomp, Oberflächlichem und Anmaßungen, ob in der Politik oder im Kulturleben, und unermüdlich der Kunst verpflichtet. Obwohl er Romantiker war, verfolgte er ein Konzept künstlerischer Wahrheit, das in der Aufklärung wurzelte und einem philosophisch materialistischen gleich kam: „Im Grunde genommen ist Kunst nicht das, was man gemeinhin darin sieht, also eine vage Inspiration aus dem Nichts, die sich ziellos entfaltet und bloß das Pittoreske, Äußere der Dinge abbildet. [Kunst] ist reiner Verstand, verschönert durch das Genie, folgt aber einem klaren Konzept und ist an höhere Gesetze gebunden“. (Tagebuch, 7. April 1849)

IBM Used NYPD Surveillance Footage to Develop Technology That Lets Police Search by Skin Color

In the decade after the 9/11 attacks, the New York City Police Department moved to put millions of New Yorkers under constant watch. Warning of terrorism threats, the department created a plan to carpet Manhattan’s downtown streets with thousands of cameras and had, by 2008, centralized its video surveillance operations to a single command center. Two years later, the NYPD announced that the command center, known as the Lower Manhattan Security Coordination Center, had integrated cutting-edge video analytics software into select cameras across the city.
