It's a Very Sad Day Here at Galewyn Massey's "The Brooklyn Independent GOP Fountainhead"


* * * JOSEPH HAYON HAS BEEN ARRESTED * * * 



It's like we have suffered a death of somebody very close to this blog....



Being well known as a socially conservative Republican in Brooklyn, Joseph Hayon has had a relationship with this blog almost from the very beginning  —  not only was he perhaps the most reliable Baker Street Irregular on inside information about the Brooklyn GOP Organization,  often he was the subject of several featured posts, and the occasional "UPDATE" and "BACKFILL" comment.



According to a story in the New York Post, Mr. Hayon has been arrested and charged with trafficking in child pornography  (See  "Tea Party operative busted for child porn” by Kenneth Garger, Lorena Mongelli and Lia Eustachewich, 5/22/15, NY Post [http://nypost.com/2015/05/22/tea-party-operative-busted-for-child-porn/]). That article provides some details of the charges as well as some of Mr. Hayon’s background.

If nothing else, this is a personal tragedy for Mr. Hayon and his family.

Gale, you should be ashamed of yourself. Joseph Hayon has admitted to reporters to dealing in child porn. You should be condemning him.

I like how you call it a "tragedy." A tragedy is the death of American troops who are protecting us. A tragedy is when a good person is befallen by an unfortunate event. A sicko kiddie porn collector getting caught in the act is not a tragedy. In fact, I would call that a victory.

It sounds like this article is not about some douchebag that admitted to possessing child pornography. Wtf?

RESPONSE & UPDATE: THE “JUST THE FACTS” EDITION

THE UPDATE: ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOSEPH HAYON CASE HAS BEEN PUBLISHED BY OTHER NEWS OUTLETS

Certain details not mentioned in the New York Post report about the arrest of Joseph Hayon do appear in other newspapers and other news media ( See e.g. “Brooklyn political candidate admits to viewing 20 images of child porn: prosecutors” by Christina Carrega-Woodby, 5/22/15, NY Daily News [http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/bklyn-politico-busted-child-porn-prosecutors-article-1.2232386]).

One item of particular interest appeared in an Orthodox Jewish community blog (See “Brooklyn, NY - Former Jewish Political Candidate Arrested On Child Porn Charges” 5/22/15, Vos Iz Neias [http://www.vosizneias.com/204240/2015/05/22/brooklyn-ny-former-jewish-city-council-candidate-arrested-on-child-porn-charges/]). That site indicated this: “... A Cyber tip led police to search Hayon’s home in Midwood, where the child porn was found. According to prosecutors, police took two laptops, five desktops, a video camera, a Samsung cellphone and one DVD....” According to Vos Iz Neias “... Information taken from the New York Post...”; however, the NY Post report doesn’t mention anything about a “... Cyber tip....”

MY RESPONSE TO SOME OF THE COMMENTS ABOVE

First, I don't see any need or duty to issue any condemnation of Mr. Hayon at this time.... The facts will speak for themselves in due course.

My use of the term “tragedy” was in no way inappropriate and there is no need for me to change or modify my use of it in any way.

Several of the comments above are in the nature of some kind of venting exercise; and they are largely not factually based. Nonetheless, I think they are broadly within the range of fair comment and criticism, without implying any agreement to them jointly or severally.

Just because Hillary sold out US interests for cash to the Clinton foundation dosent mean she did anything wrong.

These are just allegations.

In case you missed it, Berardelli and Gallo sinking to new lows trying to exploit the Hayon arrest to attack their rivals within the Brooklyn GOP. Hayon is despicable and disgusting but manipulating this horrific incident to smear other GOP activists is low even for their standards.

NOTICE: THE "MODERATION IN ALL THINGS IS WHAT I SAY IT IS" EDITION

GET THIS STRAIGHT -- ERROR HAS NO RIGHTS ON THIS BLOG

LIES AND OBNOXIOUS NONSENSE WILL BE TAKEN DOWN ASAP

Several comments have been moderated out of existence as items to be seen on this blog --- many on this very thread about Joseph Hayon and his recent arrest.

Everybody needs to know that the reporting and commentary about Joseph Hayon prior to his recent arrest involved his political activities at the time; there was never any covering for any alleged illegal activities.

Nobody associated with the production of the Galewyn Massey blog, "Brooklyn ... Fountainhead," either condemns or defends Mr. Hayon in any way. We have urged keeping it factual; and we continue to do so.

GM and "Brooklyn ... Fountainhead" has reported about the charges and the news coverage related to Mr. Hayon, as well as allowing the fair comments about Hayon and the charges of those not previously banned from this blog.

Any expression of sadness at the loss of a contributor, like Mr. Hayon, is no greater or less than than at the loss of any other contributor. For example, the loss of someone, known widely as "Church Lady," also resulted in similar sadness.

However, the expulsion and well-modulated condemnation of that individual precluded any expression of such sadness [and were it not for the Hayon matter, it wouldn't have been mentioned at all]. That expulsion and well-modulated condemnation was because the rank and public immorality manifest by the "Church Lady's" open and immoral support of Hillary Clinton, to be President of this great nation, linked with the "Church Lady's" attempts and collusion with others to usurp the name and identity of this blog.

In my opinion, the totality of the "Church Lady's" recent pursuits in support of the disgusting old hag-thief, who is now running for president, is its own sort of trafficking in porn.

So Glenn Nocera's feelings got hurt. Boohoo....

Per his website for the Brooklyn "Young" Republican club..... "The Charges are very disturbing to say the least, especially If the charges are true and if he is found guilty"

So he won't even admit that his friend and a member of his club who "made written statements where he admits to owning the email address, viewing and sharing children engaged in sexual conduct" is guilty. That's a leader.

And for the record, I'm not saying Nocera and other Friends of Joseph Hayon are guilty of these crimes by association. But what I will say is that they have poor judgement in character and who they publically support.

Anonymous said...

You should really call out your other Baker Street friends Gallo and Berardelii for using this terrible event to try to settle old scores with Glenn Nocera and others. Hayon's arrest has embarrassed all Republicans not just some Republicans. The fact that Berardelii and Gallo are publicizing this incident so heavily shows how truly clueless they really are and kind of explains why the Brooklyn GOP no longer has an Office anywhere in Brooklyn.

This blog gets worse ever time. The fact that anyone can defend Hayon is disturbing.

RESPONSE: THE "ANONYMOUS... AT 10:35 AM" EDITION

WHO HAS DEFENDED JOSEPH HAYON ON THIS BLOG, BLOGGER OR COMMENT MAKER ?

Please, keep it factual...

The whole current Hayon mess is sui generis and not "Soooeeeee ! Pig- Pig-Pig-Pig !" It shouldn't be a cattle-call or an epi-phenomenological event to gather the tribes and settle old scores inside or outside the Brooklyn GOP.

Anonymous said...

Exactly ! As if being a Republican in Brooklyn is not hard enough, now we have these two blowhards trying blow up the story and give it even more traction by using it to attack Nocera. Russ and Gene's thuggish tactics make it obvious why no local elected official will have anything to do with them. And the next time Craig is picking up the Brooklyn GOP mail at the local PO Box he should think about that.

It's comical how those who scream the loudest shouting others names (outside of the "news" article of course) hide behind anonymous. You are trying to take the attention off of Hayon being Gayon child porn!

RESPONSE: THE "WHIMSICAL PLAY ON ABOVE ABOUT 'GAYON' CHILD PORN" EDITION

NOT FACTUAL....

There is no indication that the kiddie porn alleged to be involved in this case has any "gay" component....

Let's keep it factual and fair.

Gail, you almost figured out the code used by commenter 11:53 AM above, but you blew it when it was crunch time. What is being suggested I think is that Craig Eaton is about to go "postal" over this Hayon case.

These two buffoons are using a horrible, terrible, despicable incident for personal gain. Shame on them. And shame on Eaton for condoning their behavior.

Shame, blame, lame! How Joseph treated children, woman and fellow constituents. How demeaning he was. How belittling he could be at times. I'd love to know who bailed him out. What nerve!

Simply stunning that some on this blog defend Hayon but condemn Gallo and Berardelli. Priorities people! At least they were man enough to issue their statements using their real names.

Anonymous said...

Gale et al, how can you claim that Hayon wasn't a known criminal prior to him being caught sticky handed with child porn?

This story was from over a year ago. Dealing drugs? Beating women? Shame on all of you.

http://jpupdates.com/2013/11/04/exclusive-boro-park-council-candidate-admits-dealing-with-drugs/

"Documents obtained by JP Updates, show Mr. Hayon was expelled from Baltimore before he moved to Brooklyn for, allegedly, dealing with drugs in his dorm and for assaulting a Jewish teenaged girl, at the age of 20.

Speaking to JP Updates, Mr. Hayon admitted he was aware of the drug dealing but said he had no control over it. However, he declined to comment about the alleged assault story.

“Yes. It happened 15 years ago,” he admitted that drugs was sold and smoked in his house, but further denied that he was involved."

Galewyn Massey said...

RESPONSE: THE "SIMPLE EXPLANATION" EDITION

I don't recall making any claims that Hayon was or wasn't a known criminal at any time.

On the other hand, it would be easy to make a claim that Joseph Hayon was not a known criminal; because quite simply, Hayon wasn't a known criminal, or necessarily even suspect of any crimes, prior to his current situation....

People have mentioned that particular JP Updates article in the past. Even if one were to credit everything in it, which I don't; the contents of the JP Updates article wouldn't establish that anybody is a known criminal.

Statement from Candidate Joseph Hayon:

“I find it outrageous that David Greenfield’s campaign fabricated a couple of letters in my name pretending that I was endorsed by community organizations and an elected official so they can then criticize me and allege that I am a “liar”. My campaign would never suggest an endorsement that is not 100% true and accurate. This campaign is about getting out the truth about David Greenfield and his left wing, liberal record to the people of 44th District and that what’s my campaign has been doing all along.

Anything issued from my campaign is 100% true and accurate. I’m proud to have received the endorsements of Congressman Bob Turner and Senators Ruben Diaz and David Storobin and numerous Rabbonim that oppose funding LGBT groups.

Mr. Greenfield should be ashamed for attempting to impugn my personal integrity. He needs to offer a public apology.”

No one on this blog is defending Hayon he should go to Prison for a very long time and no one on this blog is buying your pathetic straw man arguments in defending these two buffoons. There is nothing manly about exploiting such a horrible event in order to raise their profiles and settle old scores. Berardelii and Gallo are attention whores always have been always will be.

Anonymous said...

Glenn, bottom line is 2 of your guys (Grimm and Hayon) are heading to jail. As a matter of fact i can't find any statements from the Brooklyn YRs on Grimm's crimes.

My mother told me "you are the company you keep."

Anonymous said...

Gene and Russ you are desperate for relevance pathetic attention whores always have been and always will be. Couldn't resist exploiting even this kind of tragedy. Truly pathetic and it goes a long way towards explaining why no local elected officials will have anything to do with either of you. And both of you reached out to Grimm to help him in Summer 2014 and even he said no thank you.

Anonymous said...

Glenn,

Might want to check your facts. I can only find you still supporting Grimm in 2014. Gallo and Berardelli are not on record anywhere online (they write in their own names for several sites) supporting Grimm in 2014.

And as for Hayon, well again, i can only find online pics and posts if you and your club supporting him after his arrests for drugs, weapons and violence.

I guess it takes child porn for your whore ass to dump a friend....

At least even you have a limit.

Anonymous said...

Grimm wouldn't accept your support and that is why you didn't come out for him publicly. No one knew about Hayon's despicable secret and if you guys did you should have done something about it. And sorry, issuing press releases about Hayon and using it to smear someone else on Twitter who is completely unrelated to the Hayon incident, after the fact, does not count.

Blah, blah, blahh. It's just the same ol' song!

calling all criminals that are interested in running for office- if you need support get in touch with Glenn Nocera and his YRs.

They have an impressive resume including supporting convicted felon Michael Grimm and accused child porn collector Joseph Hayon, not to mention the ever sleazy Marty Golden.

Just email him your rap sheet to get the ball rolling.

Anonymous said...

Nocera certainly sounds like a whiny little bitch. He won't even admit that Hayon is guilty, just wants to complain about Gallo and Berardelli hurting his feelings online

And whoever keeps calling this a tragedy should be ashamed of themselves. Anyone who commits these kind of crimes is a despicable human being, and using the word tragedy is an insult to those who suffer real tragedies at the hands of criminals and terrorists.

For the Record:

Michael Grimm,

Lied about his military service and wore army ribbons on his marine dress uniform.

Resigned from the FBI with fifteen years on job and didn't receive a pension. He kept his undercover persona alive after his resignation and was banned from entering federal buildings.

Used his gun and status in a racially charged incident.

Had sex in a Bay Ridge bar bathroom.

Never answered questions revolving around shady campaign contributions and the possible selling of visas.

Threatened to break a reporter like a little boy when asked about the above.

Failed to pay $1 million in taxes for a business he owned.


Glenn knew all this and supported him anyway for years.

Disgraceful.

It is certainly a fair question to ask in reference to ANY and ALL politicians that Glenn supports, "what does he know and when did he know it?"

NOTICE: THE "HRC SUPER VOLUNTEERS CARE SO MUCH ABOUT JOSEPH HAYON" EDITION

ONE OF HRC'S SUPER TROLLS THAT SPENDS HER TIME TROLLING THIS BLOG HAS DECIDED TO "GET INTO THE ACT" WITH THE JOSEPH HAYON TRAGEDY

Here's some of her handiwork impersonating Galewyn Massey on the Joseph Hayon front:

"GalewynForHillary ‏@Gale4Hillary 49m49 minutes ago

@RussGallo @amiterangi @BrooklynYR hey Hayon's my boy leave him alone this is a TRAGEDY 3 Rabbis made his bail that's how much he's loved"

It's all somewhat strange, because in a recent E-Mail this one said she wouldn't be commenting about Hayon's problems.

I guess she was suddenly feeling puckish and just couldn't help herself.... She get's that a lot....

People like Russ and Gene exploiting the terrible horrific incident with Hayon are the ones who should be ashamed. And yes I think for his family his wife and his children this is a tragedy. Or are you two dimwits going to after his wife and kids next?

Michael Grimm--whatever his personal indiscretions--fought bravely for this country and received medals. Marty Golden was injured in the line of duty as a New York City Police Officer. When they ran the voters in their respective districts gave them large majorities of victory selecting them as their representatives. When Berardelli and Gallo ran??? Well not so much...they lost by huge margins whoppingly huge margins and their recent clueless destructive behavior helps us understand why.

So by your logic every dem in Brooklyn that wins with 90+% of the vote is a great person? Says a lot about you...

Common sense is that they shouldn't throw stones when they live in glass houses. Russ and Gene tried to take the Hayon incident and turn it on their rivals, when that backfired they somehow involved Grimm and Golden. Considering Berardelli and Gallo's miserable showings at the polls, they should give up their delusions of grandeur and spare us their nasty petty little quarrels.

Russell and gene the Brooklyn Young Republicans club should stop having their meetings at chairman eatons law office while you're drinking with underage kids in the audience. What happens if an underage kid drinks some alcohol and dies of alcohol poisoning or gets killed for drinking and driving. These are major liabilities that chairman eaton needs to be aware of. The last thing we need is another scandal involving a Republican. Let's hope the press don't get any wind of this.
