Diaz Jr. Not Happy with Potential Armory Bids

After all the years of battling over the Kingsbridge Armory and the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. opposing the prior development plan, we now get word that he may be disappointed with the potential bidders. According to a posting in the wnyc blog, the BP is not excited by any of the proposals which are said to include a mega church but not a big box store. It would be sad, and more than ironic, if a good proposal is not submitted after Diaz led the effort to kill a former offer valued at over $300 million.

  1. A megachurch! For none other than Creflo Dollar of Dollar Ministries. Creflo Dollar was born Michael Smith in College Park, MD but claimed from his pulpit several times that his Daddy named him Creflo Dollar. He, and several other televangelists, were under scrutiny by Senator Grassley couple of years ago for their lavish spending and insisistence that their congregants tithe in the name of the LAWD, so those tithes would fund their lavish spending ways (private jets, mega-mansions, rolls royce, fleets of hummers for security). Rev. Dr. Creflo Dollar aka Michael Smith basically told Sen. Grassley "UP YAWLS WITH YOUR SILKEN DRAWLS" when asked to turn over his financial records. You can read about that here: http://articles.cnn.com/2007-12-07/politics/prosperity.preachers_1_world-changers-church-tax-laws-ministries?_s=PM:POLITICS

    What we have now is a bid from Creflo Dollar who has probably been in touch with Diaz Sr. and I would imagine some kind of seed offering/blessing to/from the choich was discussed if big and baby Diaz help to nail this Megachurch-inside-the-historic-Armory deal. Soldiers for the Lawd!!!! Amen and Halleluyer.

    Televangelists, Politicians...they are all alike.

    The living wage "fight" was a fully orchestrated smokescreen and mirror circus trick for Diaz Jr and his political arms to secure the right bids from the right people who would grease the palms that eventually wind right back up Baby Diaz a--.

    The Bronx is burning. And not in a good way.

  2. Why can't we just have the oringal deal from Related that Diaz helped kill?

    Now that he has done an aboutface on that "living wage" nonsense, he has no reason to oppose it anymore.

    What an absurd fiasco!! Thanks for nothing Mr. Borough President.

    2. To Anonymous who asks " why can't we just have the original deal? " The answer is simple: there was a boned-headed rejection of that deal by the flip-flopping Bronx borough president and his city council friends.

  6. Looking a Diaz's record on the K'bridge Armory, I just gotta ask a simple question: WHAT THE HELL WAS HE THINKING?

  8. The man has no economic expertise, and it shows.

    1. He seems like a nice guy but I think that Mr. Diaz's lack of economic and business credentials is a big problem becausse he cannot give us the kind of leadership that our times demand for a borough suffering from high unemployment and low opportunity. To make matters worse, he does not seem to see or understand the anger and alienation that his mistakes, misfires and ineffectiveness cause among the people of The Bronx.

    2. It's a safe bet that the last person Mike Bloomberg would turn to for financial advice is Rubin Diaz Jr.

  9. That WNYC blog is as old as... well you know what I mean.
    It will not be up to Diaz, but whatever Mayor Bloomberg wants to go there, or he will have a new head of the EDC.

  12. Unfortunately, Rubén Díaz Jr. made a notoriously bad call on the Kingsbridge Armory back in 2009, and Bronxites lost out.
