|As a licensed New York City Taxi Driver who also is approved as an Official NYC Tour Guide, I come in contact with New Yorkers, people from many States and from the rest of the world. These are the True Tales that they are talking about in my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge.
For those folk who don’t have time for a full day tour, please ask about my new half day tour. See my tour page.
Moving to NYC? Take one of my get acquainted tours to find your apartment or house.
Also, ask me about my newest tour which I call “Cinema.” Pick your favorite NYC location movie and we will explore the actual scene sights together. How about “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” or maybe “Ghostbusters.”
Or, you can take the tour “A Day with Al Capone” where we spend the day seeing where he whacked people and conducted his business.
Also, ask me about picking you up at the end of your ship cruise, give you a tour and take you to the airport so you can fly home.
Pressed for time? Ask me about my half day tours..Ideal, if you are thinking of moving to NYC and would like to just see some residential neighborhoods.
Special attention to the kiddies, the elderly and the special needs folks.
Take a look at 1911, the year I was born. (only kidding)
These are my True Tales for the month of August 2018, which can be heard on radio stations throughout the United States and the rest of the world. Take a look at this web site’s link SEARCH.
These are topics that are either discussed directly with me or are eavesdropped on folks who are in the back of my hack also known as my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge.
**** The chatter is all about Omarosa and Donnie. Most of the guys are lusting after her and most of the female passengers say sho looks like a tramp. In any case, I am betting it is just another case of him not being able to keep his pants on. As one of the folk said, “She does her best work on her back.” Don’t worry about being disrespectful to the President of the United States. Recently most of our presidents have been whore meisters.
****For more than a year now, an only-in-New York transportation nightmare has been caused by the case of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the Mexican drug lord best known as El Chapo. In a highly unusual move, Mr. Guzmán is facing trial in Brooklyn, but, because of his proclivity for breaking out of prison, he is being held in a high-security federal jail in Lower Manhattan. Every few months or so, whenever he is called to go to court, something awful happens: The police must close the entire Brooklyn Bridge, stranding hundreds of motorists as the world’s biggest drug lord is swept across the East River in a speeding motorcade of heavily armored cars. And when the trial begins in November, the traffic could get worse because Mr. Guzmán will need to be escorted over the span twice a day, for up to four months. These closures would happen, inconveniently enough, precisely during the morning and evening rush hours. Try driving a taxi over this bridge.
**** I warn my taxi and tour occupants that there are no public restrooms in New York City. Don’t say “now” to me. Say “five minutes” and I will find you one. If you think this quest is a joke, wait until you have to cross your legs in absolute pain. An earthy New Yorker would call it, the “shitter.”
**** When the name “Cuomo” comes up in my New York City taxi, the response is that the father Mario was a mafia guy, the son Andrew is a crooked governor and the other son Chris is a liar for CNN. I have no personal knowledge of these assertions but I do know that Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton have said that the Cuomo family is an Italian mob. I love spaghetti and meatballs and that is an insult to my stomach.
**** Chicago is a killing field for Black people. On any given weekend sixty will be shot by other Black people. I raise this point because I picked up a Black businessman at Laguardia Airport who came to New York City to do a feasibility study to see if he should move his family to NYC. He told me that the primary cause of the violence in Chicago was a corrupt police department. One other thing, he thought that the Black NFL players who are “taking the knee” as a protest against White cops was strange because it is not the White cops who are killing Blacks. “It is Blacks who are doing the killing.” Of all the professional athletes in the USA, the NFL players have the most violence including wife beating and rape.
.**** During the hottest days of August, Con Edison, which is our electric utility company will lose power in sections of New York City and turn off power (if any) to late bill payers even if they are elderly or handicapped. They have the highest paid administrative workers (the bosses) of any utility company in the United States. If you are a tourist make sure you book into a hotel that has a generator. Airbnb does not have generators.
**** The NYC taxi commision is adding more cabs on a daily basis which means the average cab driver is hardly earning enough money to put his food on the table or pay his apartment rent. So far this year seven taxi drivers have committed suicide. Probably from infected bladders because the Commission does not provide restroom facilities anywhere and the driver just has to hold it or use a coffee cup. Also, cab drivers in New York City are treated like animals. They do not have disability insurance, workmen’s compensation, vacation days or sick days. Taxi commission is a group of thugs with the consent of the mayor.
**** At least 25 people in Chicago were shot within 2 and a half hours on the first Sunday of the month, continuing a bloody weekend in that city. At least 36 people — 16 of them teenagers — were shot between that Saturday and Sunday morning. Three people were killed as investigators continued their search for some of the shooters. Chicago Police Chief of Patrol Fred Waller at a news conference said: “We know that some of these incidents were targeted, and are related to gang conflicts in those areas.” So far this month, 59 people have been shot and six of them have died.” NYPD cooks the books, so we are not sure about the Big Apple and murders, but here is the good news for you all, tourists never ever get shot.
**** Abilio James Acosta is an American journalist who is currently the chief White House correspondent for CNN. He and his gaggle of reporters make fun of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary. It is bad enough that they are generally rude to her, but to attack her as a woman is evil. Acosta is really a “putz” which is a real New York City word for “penis.” Here is a photo of Sarah (an old friend) and a photo of Acosta.
**** Of the estimated 3 to 4 million Buddhists in the United States, the vast majority are Asian Americans. One percent of the population in New York City is Buddhist. Buddhism is a religion/life philosophy practiced by an estimated 600 million in the world, representing 10% of the world’s total population. China is the country with the largest population of Buddhists, approximately 244 million or 18.2% of its total population. On Saturday, August 4, 2018, taxis were busy ferrying hundreds of people to the New York Buddhist Vihara where the 90th birthday of the headman, Kurunegoda Piyatissa Maha Thereo was celebrated. Not one word appeared in the New York Times, the New York Post or the Daily News. They are guilty of “no news” in addition to “fake news.”
**** It never ceases to amaze me about the number Jew haters there are in New York City. The perpetrators of this attitude must just dislike Pastrami. Most of the anti-Semics I encounter in my yellow mobile conveyance lounge will ask me about my own religious beliefs before they go into the usual tirade. A big topic has been the schmuck British politician, Jeremy Corbyn, who is attempting to scramble to high ground in the face of protests against the anti-Semitism coursing through what could become the country’s ruling party. In an op-ed column in the Guardian, Mr. Corbyn acknowledges the problem his party faces. The man who could yet become Prime Minister insists: ‘I will root antisemites out of Labor – they do not speak for me.” He will not be invited to any Bar Mitzvahs in Brooklyn.
****The Korean War was a war between North Korea (with the support of China and the Soviet … Totals of all participants: 178,405 dead and 32,925 missing. Total wounded: 566,434. I had several passengers during the month who had connections to the Korean War (grandfather killed, uncle killed). It was probably the most stupid war the USA ever got into. The end result was now there are two corrupt Koreas.
**** Amazon has struck a deal with federal law enforcement agencies to deploy the company’s facial recognition system called “Rekognition.” The technology uses artificial intelligence to identify people, objects and text in images, according to Amazon’s description. “Amazon Rekognition also provides highly accurate facial analysis and facial recognition on images and video that you provide,” Amazon says about the technology. “You can detect, analyze, and compare faces for a wide variety of user verification, people counting, and public safety use cases.” Golly. I thought Amazon, the owner of the Washington Post, was a tree hugging commie pinko company.
**** Is it legal to use headphones while driving or riding a bike in New York? That depends on whether you’re listening in stereo. According to the state Vehicle and Traffic Law, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle, motorcycle or bicycle “while wearing more than one earphone attached to a radio, tape player or another audio device.” Thousands of riders are hit by cars who have already been “beeped.”
**** City jail officials are probing how an inmate had sex with a visitor inside a Manhattan jail. The hanky-panky in the city pokey occurred last week at the Manhattan Detention Complex away from the prying eyes of officers, according to a jail insider. Surveillance video of the steamy encounter shows the female visitor moving up and down on an unidentified inmate. The woman then places her face in his lap. “We are aware of this incident,” said Department of Correction spokesman Jason Kersten. The department “takes any violation of visitor rules seriously.” The prisoner is facing new restrictions on his visit privileges. But, we got the most fun jails in the world.
**** Talk is cheap — but not behind bars, so the City Council is set to pass a bill that would allow Rikers inmates to make calls for free. The legislation passed the Council’s Committee on Criminal Justice, and the full Council is expected to approve it. Inmates now pay a one-time, 48-cent surcharge to use a phone, 8 cents per minute for the first three minutes, and 11 cents per minute for longer calls, according to the city’s contract with Securus, the vendor that operates the city’s phone system. Now, they can have their hookers come to the jails.
**** New York City Housing Authority says 17,000 tenants are more than three months behind on their rent. Uncollected rents now total about $55 million. This is already the ultimate scam in that the rents are subsidized
**** A New York City Uber driver was kicked off the ride-hailing app after a passenger caught him peeing in a bottle during their ride, a spokesperson for the company said in a statement. Passenger Raichelle Carter, a chef at Paint ‘N Pour in Harlem, recorded her Uber driver relieving himself after being picked up in Midtown. A coffee cup is easier.
**** The new publisher of the New York Times, Arthur Gregg “A.G.” Sulzberger, went to the White House to implore President Trump to lay off the press. However, The New York Times is accused of being the worst offender when it comes to fake news and that it lies about its circulation numbers. Shhh, it is owned by a Jewish family which they would like to keep secret.
**** In other New York Times news, Sulzberger hires Sarah Jeong, an inscrutable racist oriental who is anti-white people especially elderly white people many of whom I know and they are really harmless. She will be writing the fake editorials which are not to be confused wih the fake news.
**** Cayuga Centers in New York City has quietly become the largest provider of foster care for unaccompanied minors in federal government custody. Some say, the displaced immigrant children are a real money making racket.
**** The special counsel’s office has expressed interest in issuing a subpoena to a woman who gained notoriety a decade ago for running a prostitution service in Manhattan, the woman, Kristin Davis, said. Ms. Davis, 43, said she was unaware what information she might possess that would be of interest to the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Another one of Trump’s whores?
**** Sen. Bernie Sanders has proposed a new plan to provide “free” health care for everyone in America, which will cost taxpayers $32.6 trillion over 10 years — and socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doesn’t see any problem with that. He is the original seltzer man from a Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn who now lives in a fancy house in Vermont with the Gentiles.
**** Tactic was to block traffic in New York City even though only eleven people showed up for the Trump protest du jour. Taxi riders are not happy with increased fare this causes and they get out to walk. Ambulances and fire engines and cop cars can’t get through.
**** The so-called “Taxi King” of New York City has to pay a princely sum — he’s been ordered to fork over $1.3 million to a former worker who accused him of sexual harassment. Taxi tycoon Evgeny (Gene) Freidman didn’t bother fighting Elaine Gutierrez’s claims that Freidman rudely remarked on her body — even ogled the woman and angled to be alone with her after hours. Freidman is in the taxi medallion business with Trump’s fixer Michael Cohen. Freidman has denied reports he’s talking to authorities about Cohen. Cohen and Friedman and Trump, what a team.
**** These are the Federal Judges who routinely and illegally issue the FBI warrants to poke its nose into people’s private lives and seize their property. Political hacks. They are like the Planet of the Apes judges.

**** William Campbell was using the restroom at Grand Central Terminal in New York City when a “man using the urinal next to petitioner leaned over and looked at petitioner’s penis. Campbell “pushed the man away,” but the stranger jumped on him and said “What are you doing, you f—–g f—-t?” his state civil lawsuit alleges. Campbell said “nothing,” and the man then called him a “dirty h–o,” his court papers alleging false arrest say. At that point, the man who turned out to be a Metropolitan Transportation Authority cop cuffed Campbell so tightly his “wrists bled.” The cop may be a pervert in blue.

Many of the restaurants that they tout have numerous health violations and you can always ask me about that. I do not “rate” things, but I sure can tell you if you choices (including hotels and attractions) are wise ones.
