LIONEL PODCAST: Lionel and Veteran NYPD Detective Sergeant Wally Zeins Unabashedly and Unapologetically Break Down the Truth of the Current Mess

Behold our leader. Bill de Blasio. One-termer. Clueless. See supra. Over his head but trying. I think. I hope. Look, I want him to win. He’s the captain of the ship. And we’re on the ship. If he loses, we lose. So Schadenfreude makes no sense in this instance.He’s the chairman of the board, the CEO and COO and administrator of a $74B corporation. A behemoth. Five boroughs, 8.4M+ residents, 40% of the state’s population. Ginormous. Brobdingnagian. A colossus. And there’s no time to worry about horse carriages or progressive ideology, whatever the hell that means. He’s grown up a lot, this mayor, and he’s just coming up on his first year. But he has this accomplishment under his belt: He beats David Dinkins hands down for polarizing the NYPD this fast, this deeply and this dangerously.

Enter Lionel and Wally.

Lionel and former 30 year veteran NYPD Detective Sergeant Wally Zeins

The cop’s cop. He’s a former NYPD Detective Sergeant for 30 years and a retired commanding officer of the Manhattan Detectives Nightwatch. He was a supervisor of the Hostage Negotiation Team and is a renowned national law-enforcement media reporter. And he’s a great friend. A fabulous storyteller and raconteur. But of truth and actuality, amazing anecdotes and history. Not a fabulist he. He’s a professional cop of the first order, the constable, the centurion. And he’s critical in negotiating through the mess that is the news today. Enter Lionel and Wally.

Just the facts, ma’am. That’s all we want. The facts. the truth. That simple. The issue has dematerialized and disinterested into lunatic name calling and pithy memes and inapposite hashtags. For the facts have nothing to do apparently with the truth. After all, they get in the way of a good story. Enter Lionel and Wally.

The sextet. Now to really get into the nuts and bolts of the story, keep an eye on the following. Their interplay is critical to note and watch. Part symbiotic, part parasitism. One potentiating the other. Fueling and feeding.

  • Hizzoner BDB. See supra.
  • The Commish Bill Bratton. Clearly he knows what must be done. This is his moment.
  • Rudy Giuliani. The Mayor Emeritus.
  • PBA Prez Pat Lynch. Ready for prime time. Watch his media trajectory and vector.
  • Governor Andrew Cuomo. He’s plenipotent. Potential for great vacuum filling.
  • Reverend Al Sharpton. Wow. Can you say “kryptonite”?

Enter Lionel and Wally.

LIONEL PODCAST: Political Vacuums, Winners & Losers, Media Trajectories, Leadership Vectors and New York at the Crossroads

27 December 2014 – A lone (though not in collective sentiment and spirit) anti-BDB protester holds up a sign outside Christ Tabernacle Church during the funeral of slain New York City Police Officer Rafael Ramos, one of two officers executed for wearing the uniform in a cowardly ambush in Brooklyn.

New York Politics for Dummies. This is the most comprehensive, no holds barred, no nonsense abecedarian disquisition and review of New York to the bone politics that you’ll hear anywhere. It unabashedly and brutally addresses political vacuums, power struggles, along with the winners and losers, media trajectories and leadership vectors of this great city, home to more than 8.4M people and accounting for about 40% of the population of the Empire State. This is a New York tutorial that will make your jaw drop, your eyes water and teeth clench. And after Saturday’s breathtaking funeral and memorial to Officer Ramos amidst a sea of blue, with cops from all over the country and world, all turning their backs in unison and on cue to the clueless and shell-shocked one-termer BDB, the country and world look to New York to see what’s next. And Lionel knows. If you can handle the naked truth.

As Hunter S. Thompson said, “When the going gets weird the weird turn pro.”

LIONEL PODCAST: Two NYPD Officers Were Executed by a Lowlife Subhuman Waste of Flesh

That about sums that up. That should be the headline. And the end of any further attempts at analysis or explication, extrapolation or causation. A dirtbag slaughtered two innocent cops merely because they were wearing a uniform. That’s it. Full stop. Not only that, this vermin plasters social media with his tough guy scowl and a sneer and a gun. I shan’t ever utter or write his name. He’s a nullity. And that’s the end of the discussion.

Causation versus correlation. Only he’s responsible. The human waste. He’s responsible. Not de Blasio the Pathetic, not Al Sharpton, not the media or Islam or guns or liberalism or _____ (your inapposite reference here). This slime acted on his own and with a country of over 316.1M people, his behavior was a statistical aberration, attributable to nothing and no one save himself.

Auf Wiedersehen, baby. But the political winds have changed drastically. So long de Blasio, darling of the neo-progressive left who touted him as a contender in 2016. And adios, Guillermo, for the 2017 mayoralty you’re now officially a one-termer. Remember, two things New York voters hate is a member who’s lousy on snow plowing (Can you say John Lindsay?) and weak on crime and — Gawd fornidm riots (Can you say David Dinkins?). And sayonara, Al Sharpton, whose political liability and kryptonite visage heretofore have been nonpareil, may have finally worn out the tenuous welcome he enjoyed. You’ve finally hit critical mass. This is your Cosby moment. So long, farewell. And keep your eye on Pat Lynch, whose firebrand style needs some polishing but it’s pure media gold. Watch what happens.
