Liam McCabe‘s hits just keep on coming


Knocking a big branch off a tree in Dyker Heights caused much more than a swarm of confused and angry bees to spread out and menace the epicenter of the 43rd Council District….


It was yet another instance that allowed Liam McCabe to strut the kind of stuff that makes it look like he’s not only gonna walk away with the GOP nomination for council in the 43rd Counc. Dist. come primary day,  but also be in a position to take on all comers in November as the area’s new Republican  “King of the Hill”




The Brooklyn Reporter tells this basic story clearly and succinctly,  as follows:   “A hive of bees and the tree that it called home fell victim Friday, June 23 to a construction truck working nearby, according to local residents who alerted this paper to the “chaos” unfolding on an otherwise quiet Dyker Heights street….   ‘I got a call about a few hours ago from [local resident] Anthony Ceretti saying that his son watched this garbage truck back into a 100-year-old tree [knocking off a large branch],’ local resident and City Council candidate Liam McCabe told this paper. ‘Then they proceeded to just leave it there.’…   The truck, McCabe said, was a private carting vehicle, raising suspicions that 934 78thStreet, the property the construction crew was working on, might be another alleged illegal conversion, an issue that has long-plagued the Dyker Heights community….”  (See  “Dyker buzzing over damage to century-old tree in course of home construction workby  Meaghan McGoldrick,  6/23/17,  Brooklyn Reporter   [http://brooklynreporter.com/story/dyker-buzzing-felling-century-old-tree-course-home-construction-work/]).


THE BIGGER STORY IS HOW LIAM MC CABE’S AND OTHERS’ ANNOUNCEMENTS AND/OR COVERAGE OF THE ACCIDENT-SPAWNED "NATURAL  EVENT " SWARMED ACROSS SOCIAL MEDIA IN JUST ONE DAY

Almost mimicking the Dyker Heights’ swarm of bees caused by the collision of the truck hauling industrial debris from a house in middle of Dyker,   Liam’s words, photos and video shots buzzed all across various social media outlets.   What they showed is Liam McCabe being completely on top of a very important local issue to many of the, dare we call them >>>  VOTERS  <<< in his prospective City Council District.

Don’t take my word for it,  see some of it  for yourself…..  (See  “This is outrageous!”  at Facebook: Liam for City Council @BK Liam [w/photo array],  6/23/17   [https://www.facebook.com/BkLiam/posts/1582313158500909];  see also  “Not only are they illegally redeveloping the block,” at Liam for City Council @BK Liam [w/photo & multiple comments],  6/23/17  [https://www.facebook.com/BkLiam/posts/1582533341812224];  and  On the site of an illegal demolition on 78th Street….”.at Twittter:  Liam McCabe @BKLiam [w/photos, Retweets, etc.], 6/23/17,   [https://twitter.com/BkLiam/status/878312305783578624]).

Gail, you must have known this was coming because of that mealy-mouth excuse about deadlines. What BS!
You promised video of Liam, and your links don't have any video. As Trump would Tweet, "... BAD!"
I know you have some personal stuff going on, and I'll bail you out this once, if you acknowledge that I am your best Baker Street Irregular like you used to do, LOTS OF TIMES.
There is video of Liam and the tree and what looks like the illegal conversion, and it's on the 'Bay Ridge Talk' Facebook Page under 'Raymond Larson shared Liam for City Council's live video.
June 23 at 2:30pm' and the link is this - https://www.facebook.com/groups/bayRidgeTalk/permalink/731946803643960/ and that is a share' of 'Liam's live video' with the link - https://www.facebook.com/pg/BkLiam/videos/
That Liam is some piece of work, going straight inside the work sight where the tree was knocked down! The sound at 'Liam's live video' is almost as god as the video images.

Quaglione needs to withdraw now so Kassar can do what he has always wanted and endorse McCabe.

All know Kassar is fit to be tied by having to take to the sidelines with his "Deputy" Chief of Staff Quaglione sitting next to him every day in Martys office and his son McCabe in it.

Wait ... Quaglione is running? How come we never see or hear him?

I saw Q last week. He knows how this will end.

I'm pretty sure that all three Republican candidates for City Council in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights have spoken out against illegal conversions, but only Liam McCabe was able to give the issue a real boost. Plus he acted quickly, got NY City agencies involved ASAP on Friday, and even had video up on social media that almost went viral with over 13,000 hits. Liam is the kind of activist that the Brooklyn Republican Party needs to have as a candidate going forward.

Somebody needs to interview the passenger in Liam's uber the one he left stranded in the Buick while Liam sprang into action with Andy Ceretti. I'm told the passenger happened to be an older woman that turned out was connected to Marty Golden's sister-in-law and she was not happy and therefore neither is Marty. The plot, as they say, thickens........ and Quaglione is still snoozing.

Anonymous at 315. Just the type of commen that would come from someone anonymously. Probably because they would b afraid of getting sued

Anonymous said...

Sued? For what?
PER SE or PER QUOD, INTRINSIC or EXTRINSIC
DAMAGES? FUGETTABOUTTIT!
NO DAMAGES, NO SUIT
Wait one second, somebody did mention that 'Quaglione is still snoozing...'. Sleeping sickness might indeed be a loathsome disease and that would constitute libel per se with no need to prove damages.
But I think only an ambulance-chaser like Ted Ghorra would take a case like that.

You are all ignoring the real story here and that is Liam firing Gerry O'Brien's firm and hiring his girlfriend from Manhattan to take over as general consultant. Why aren't you writing about that one, Gale? Some of us want the truth and we're not buying what Ted Ghorra is selling us on Court Street

Gale is too close to Gerry to give us the truth

You would think Gales close relationship with Obrien would be able to give us the real, true story on the relationship right now between Liam and and Gerry...Gale..practice what you preach, whats the story.

Anonymous said...

I spoke with O'Brien this afternoon about a different campaign he's working on, and he mentioned he's with Liam for the long haul.

The young gal from Manhattan is helping with petitions, and O'Brien isn't the only one who thinks she's doing a really good job (hence the attacks on her).

Anonymous said...

I hear Q is paying his petioners twice a week and Liam is saying to his and obrien wait for matching funds...boy, I hope he makes the ballot or a bunch of folks get screwed..

Anonymous said...

That young girl in question is the girlfriend not of Liam but of Liam's campaign manager. Both of them are very close to Jerry with a K, this tells us all we need to know about who is really calling the shots in Liam's campaign and that Q is in for a surprise if he thinks his office mate is actually neutral.

Anonymous said...

Kassar has never liked Q..this proves it ..think about Kassar and Q have worked side by side for many many years for kassar to not give the conservative line to Q the day he announced speaks volumes to all and says it all..

Capano rarely makes this comical excuse for a news blog. I guess he is out of favor. Lucky him

Kassar is a sad, angry, miserable, old man, who has treated people like dirt, has been living off the govt dime his whole life, and is now battling his own demons.

And as they say, Karma is a Bitch!!!!!!

Hey 4:49, if you really think anyone is waiting for matching funds to get paid, you are delusional, and don't understand how campaigns work.

Anonymous said...

Can any person here comment on the inter-office temperature these days over at 7408 5th Avenue? Surely it must be awkward with a capital K. What with Jerry K and Jeffrey K doing every thing they can to make certain Liam gets the upper hand while Quaglione sits in his office with the door closed, hitting refresh on Gale's blog. Now that session is over in Albany, they made need Marty to weigh in as a tiebreaker. The plot thickens and thickens... ... ...

I hear Alexandra is running Liam's new campaign office.....

I hear O'Brien thinks she's doing an amazing job at the HQ.

RESPONSE: THE "NOW, I HAVE TO AGREE....." EDITION

TO MANY OF THE COMMENTERS ABOVE

THE SECOND COMMENT WELL ABOVE IN THIS THREAD WAS A TERSE "FAKE NEWS" --- AFTER THIS MOST RECENT SPATE OF VERBAL FLAK OR FLACKING ON SOMEBODY'S BEHALF, I MUST AGREE

Most of the crap immediately above doesn't even pass muster as informed opinion. They say that small minds are easily amused.

Anonymous said...

Gale,

I think the UV-rays from the sun may be getting to your skull because here are the facts that of which we know with certainty regardless of your futile efforts to refute

1- McCabe's longtime girlfriend Alexis Schaefer of Manhattan is now steering his campaign after the unceremonious ouster of Gerry O'Brien of Brooklyn

2- Bob Capano is still banking on that Cats money to start flowing in any minute now

3- Quaglione remains the only adult in the room despite the constant plotting of Kraus & Kassar just outside his air conditioned office

Did i miss anyhting?

I hear Obrien is pissed alexandra is taking his salary..

Q wins in a landslide

Anonymous said...

Gale- can you verify these claims about alexandra?

Anonymous said...

I hear O'Brien thinks so highly of Alexandra's work for Liam that he is recommending her to his other clients.

Anonymous said...

We will help Gale out..Liama campaign manager and new political consultant Alexandra was fired from the BOE. .if obrien is recommending her????

Gale why are we giving you the good scoops here. .

Two chocolate scoops, please. No sprinkles!

Massey drops out. Shithead Kassar and his Bkkyn pices of crap think they won again because of their longtime support of Malliotakis. Ghorra is really the big winner. And Eaton the big loser because he choose not to support her.

".... Ghorra is the really big winner. And Eaton the big loser..."

I don't know who you are or very much about you, but it seems to me that you are testing your lab product on yourself..... I mean in a "Breaking Bad" sort of way..... On the other hand, the line quoted above leads me to think it might be more like a shyster-ish Ted "Better Call Saul" Ghorra sort of thing.....

Either way, Ghorra isn't any kind of winner and Eaton isn't any kind of loser over the Massey [no relation] drop-out move, because I'm pretty sure both their guys support the lovely Nicole M. for the GOP mayoral slot.....

Anonymous said...

Big losers here are Conservative shake down artists and Golden camp who were double dealing with Massey and Malliotakis all along. Now she can focus on Independence line and won't be chained to Kassar Golden and Long. They better hope Massey doesn't reveal too much when he meets with Malliotakis. Ted Who? Craig Eaton? I don't either of them are really involved anymore.

Eaton loses again!! He is on the sidelines again in Mayors race and his own council race...LOSER.

Craig and Nicole are longtime friends, watch what happens now that she can't be blackmailed anymore.
