Gene Berardelli needs to stop “tearing down,” or is that “building up,” Glenn Nocera

Yesterday, Glenn Nocera, the President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, Member of the Republican State Committee from the 44th AD and a “Republicans for Change” activist suffered a major political set back when the case, in which he was one of the named petitioner-plaintiffs, was dismissed by NYS Supreme Court Justice David Schmidt

Overnight, in a game of Cyber- Spy vs. Spy, Nocera showed that he is still one of Brooklyn’s top independent operators by shutting down all attempts by the county organization to get out their “good news” on the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page  —   you see Nocera has managed to become the administrator of that media spot 


There is a very strange post on the Brooklyn GOP Radio >Official< Show Blog this morning (See “More #EpicFail: Nocera Throws Facebook Tantrum, "Steals" Facebook Group” by Gene Berardelli, 3/1/14, Brooklyn GOP Radio >Official< Show Blog [http://brooklyngopradio.blogspot.com/2014/03/more-epicfail-nocera-throws-facebook.html]). The Berardelli post is a full-throated attack on Glenn Nocera, but it focuses on Nocera’s administration and control of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page of late, especially yesterday. A particular item in Berardelli’s craw is that Nocera has shut Mr. B out of that Facebook page.

Gene Berardelli needs to step back, take some deep breaths and decompress.  He is stepping on what should be the Brooklyn GOP’s only talking point today  >>> County Chairman Craig Eaton’s big win in court over State Senator Martin Golden is a big, big deal. <<<   Nocera’s capture of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page was accomplished months ago  —  nothing about it, or what Nocera is doing with it, needs to be put out there today or tomorrow or the next day.

Furthermore, if the purpose of the attacks on Nocera are to silence or inhibit him, they have been a complete failure. The media wars between Nocera and Berardelli have gone on for years. Any objective observer would have to acknowledge that Glenn Nocera has been the big winner as a result of many of those fights. During the era of the Berardelli attacks, Nocera has risen from a mere GOP county committee member and failed GOP candidate for office to become President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, in which position he is one of  the most quoted Republican operators in Brooklyn by the city-wide media, and he was selected as the Male Member of the Republican State Committee from the 44th AD, in which position he is an executive member of the Kings County Republican Organization. In addition, Nocera has been an active participant in each and every successful or significant GOP race in Brooklyn over the last five years; and now it looks like he has completely outmaneuvered Berardelli, Eaton and Company for control of the Brooklyn GOP Facebook page.  A strong argument can be made that a lot of Nocera’s advance within the Brooklyn GOP is due to the media attacks by Berardelli — and Nocera’s outburst at Craig Eaton at the 2013 County Convention was certainly directly attributable to his treatment at the hands of Berardelli and others lined-up with Eaton.

At a time when Craig Eaton’s Brooklyn GOP should be focused like a laser on Eaton’s principal antagonist Marty Golden, Berardelli’s blunderbuss attacks on Glenn Nocera are just counter-productive. The Berardelli Bad wolf needs to stop trying to blow down “Piggy” Nocera’s house of bricks —  it’s a waste of time and effort. Besides, who’s going to think you can beat Marty Golden when you can’t seem to be able to beat Glenn Nocera ?

You are way out if it, gale. Glen Nocera is scum who should be called out for what he is at every instant. People who are right cannot stay silent while ppl loke Nocera are around

I suspect that Glenn is in store for another court decision beatdown. We will see if the people I am speaking with are serious about pursuing an action against Nocera.

On another front, Maureen Daley lost big twice this month in court...

AGREED!

Nocera began harassing Lorraine McKeon Scanni a few months ago all but demanding he be made an admin of my "Michael Grimm goes to Congress" page, despite him never having even commented there in the past! For some reason he assumed she was a co-admin. She was pissed as Hell and told me all about it. It is quite obvious that Nocera - now joining other renegade "conservatives" in backing corrupt RINO fraud Michael Grimm - wanted to neuter that page by his old trick of becoming a "helpful" co-admin. . . and then deleting all other admins! He is now banned from that page. Our fight against RINO Grimm and the Establishment that backs him continues despite his efforts. I await the restoration of the official Brooklyn Republican Party page. People need to know who Nocera is, as I told Joe Borelli recently.

FOCUS, FOCUS, FOCUS ! ! !

If your target is Grimm, then take aim and fire on Grimm....

If your target is Golden, then take aim and fire on Golden....

Nocera might be an annoyance to you, but don't let him be a distraction --- if he does distract you, it's all to the benefit of Grimm and Golden.

Nocera is too fun to bother though. He gets so mad when he is made fun of. So I say let's all have some fun at Glenn's expense!

Con te partiro!!!!!

Once again, Gene's lack of strategic thought is clear for everyone to see.

Stick to election law, Gene. Wait, he didn't handle the case in question. They had professionals and experts for that.

OUCHA MAGOUCHA !

Got to throw a flag for unnecessary roughness on this one....

I think they made a movie about Nocera. Wasn't it called "40 year old virgin?"

Facts are facts. Maybe if Gene stopped trying to be Karl Rove, and concentrated on proofreading ...

You people really are dumb. The smartest thing he did was NOT be the attorney for himself. Ever hear that an attorney that represents himself has a fool for a client? I swear, you people ought to wear a sign or something.

Gene wasn't the client. Gene didn't make that decision. Gene screwed up Eaton's petitions so bad last summer, it's a wonder he isn't scrubbing floors somewhere, instead of playing strategist. They hired a real election lawyer because Gene isn't.

Gale, moving to other idots, I heard that Cockrane is moving to Queens to live in his house once it is finished. I heard he sold his house in Bay Ridge. These are all from good sources - in fact an old neighbor of his - and boy did she have a lot to say about the failures of the Hot Dog man....forced out of his company on the stock exchange, not re-hired by Xaverian when his 1 year contract expired, failure in the building maintenance business, failure in the hot dog business, wife forced to go back to work, now back on the stock exchange working as an employee - what a fall from grace for a pint sized red head. Why then would Golden have made such a mistake to try to have Tim "Hot Dog" Cockrane become the Chairman of a County he will no longer be living in? What a real stupid move.....as if, any of their other moves were smart...

UPDATE & BACKFILL: THE “HE SAID – SHE SAID” EDITION

There is a lot of relevant information in the COMMENTS to Gene Berardelli’s post “More #EpicFail: Nocera Throws Facebook Tantrum, "Steals" Facebook Group” (cited in my post above) — both Berardelli & Nocera SUBSTANTIALLY WEIGH-IN ( Sorry guys, I had to take that shot since I’ve lost over 30 lbs since my stay at the spa -- come join the club of FFFFs).

Glenn blinked first. Craig Eaton is an admin on the facebook group again. Of course, I totally believe that Glenn "was about" to add him back to it when it hit the fan. Now which of one you had that bridge for sale?

Anonymous said...

Gene blew it.

Instead of milking Marty's stunning legal defeat, he turned the focus to Glenn.

Looks like Gene got his public relations consulting skills from the same cracker jack box he got his law degree from.

UPDATE & BACKFILL: THE “FOR THE RECORD” EDITION

The following two massages where sent to my e-mail by Glenn Nocera:

“This is my statement below

Boy Gene the law suit just ended yesterday and I was about to give craig back the Admin when I got home from work, then I seen how crazy you were acting with your threats towards me.Those threats trust me don't scare me. Craig is more then welcome to become the Admin again, not because of your threats because its the right thing to do. Someone had to step in and become the Adult in the room. Besides you guys never created this page and that's why I was made Admin back in Nov ...and some how you figured it out in the middle of Feb talk about being on your game Gene. Plus Craig was never removed from the page because he was not making the Republican Party of Brooklyn look like a bunch of nuts. He always could of posted anything about the Republican Party be it pictures of him at events or anything like that. You on the other hand exhibited behavior that is quite frankly disgusting. You do Chairman Eaton a disservice by acting like you are a cast member from Animal house. Chairman Eaton will be restored as Admin because we did lose on a technicality and he is the Chairman. So Gene despite you going crazy I was going to do it anyway. I do ask one thing and that is act like a human and represent your boss as a Chairman should be represented like a professional.
Glenn Nocera Republican State Committeeman 44th AD.”

“...[P]lease add this statement from Yvette Bennett. She posted this on the Brooklyn Republican Party facebook page....” (Abbreviated intro from Glenn Nocera...):

“As the originator of the Brooklyn Republican Party FB group, I have tried to be the better person and maintained a low profile on this page despite the County GOP’s underhanded attempts to discredit me. I have never used this platform to injure the party. In recent months, more and more childish posts were appearing on this official group page. I felt it degraded the County GOP and the GOP in general. Glenn Nocera asked me to remove some of those childish posts. Although I w...as disgusted by the childish behavior of some of the posts and agreed that they should be removed, I wanted to maintain my low profile and was reluctant. He then asked me to give him administrative responsibilities to remove the posts himself. I then asked Glenn to speak with Marty Golden and Tim Cochran. I preferred to give either one or both of them the responsibility; however, Glenn said they declined. That is when I gave Glenn administrative responsibilities. I must say that I am pleased that Glenn has taken the high road with this latest situation. Now that Chairman Craig Eaton has succeeded in his re-election, Glenn has made Craig an administrator. If, in the future, I notice that there is more infighting or childishness, I will simply shut down and remove this group permanently. I want to maintain a class page and will no longer tolerate any other behavior. Congratulations to you, Craig, from me, Yvette Velazquez Bennett, on retaining your Chairmanship.”

Yes, Gene blew it - it only took 24 hours to get control of the group back his way. And only insiders care about this nonsense - the rest of the world doesn't care about the decision. I wonder how long it would have taken one of those paid consultants of Craig's to get up off their ass to do something. My answer would be: "How long has it been since the Brooklyn GOP website's been updated? Yeah, about that long." Or "about as long as it takes to get a press release out about the decision."

The Republican Party is very lucky to have people Like Glenn Nocera and Yvette Bennett. they are both honorable and decent people who care greatly about our party. I am glad that Glenn stepped in Because genes postings were definitely way out of control. I was really embarrassed looking at them and how he was ragging on fellow Republicans. Remember Reagan's 11th commandment. To publicly air out all our dirty laundry so all the Democrats could see was way wrong. I hope that chairmen Eaton puts a muzzle on his attack dog Gene.

So let's get this straight. Taking over a county-owned group, ousting county admins from rightful control, censoring comments, changing it from "official" and open to "non-official" and actively monitored are what "good" Republicans do?

Anonymous said...

Yvette was directed to create a Facebook page by County Chairman Craig Eaton. When she left office as a State Committeeman in 2009, Craig had other administrators added to the county Facebook page. Now, suddenly, Yvette surfaces. This smells.

Yvette Bennett was always around Brooklyn GOP politics over the last several years. She could be regularly seen at functions thrown by State Senator Golden and she also attended Conservative Party gatherings as an invited conservative Republican. In early 2011 the Bennets along with other factions attempted to form a coalition of various independent Republicans to challenge for leadership spots around Brooklyn.

Actually, she vanished from view after her unwavering support for convicted felon George Smith became public record.

Is there any news on the George Smith-Anthony Testaverde front --- so many old chestnuts have popped open lately, isn't this one about due ?.
