Among the GOP candidates in Bay Ridge and other places nearby, there are parties and rumors of parties

For Liam it was a much bally-hooed gathering with the lovely Nicole M. at what some people call the "Gingerbread House"  ---  and others call the "Stone House"  ---  and still others call the "Gorilla House".....  [ Can somebody verify for me that the "Gingerbread -- Stone House" was also the "Gorilla House" where Jumbo lived.  I was repeatedly told that by a friend that has since passed,  but a I fear that she might have had this one wrong]


For Bobby C. it's going back to an earlier venue and maybe better times  ---  with a July 9th bash at >>> The Bean Post <<<  for a "Summer Party"  with Curtis Sliwa,  the Reform Party and a cast of assorted Capano Republican Party backers


And for Johnny Cakes it's.....   Hey, will somebody wake-up John Q.  ! ! !



To me it looks like everybody running in the GOP primary for City Council in the 43rd Council District is trying to make it look like there is some there -- there in their campaigns.  Petitioning gets into its final stages after the July 4th celebrations,  and that stuff saps most small campaigns,  especially if they aren't well organized.   What to do ???   What to do !!!

OK,  throw a party  ---  small scale stuff in the mid-summer  doldrums.....

What a "TO DO" about almost nothing.....

RESPONSE: THE "DON'T PUSH MY BUTTONS" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 12:48 PM" & "[HIS BUDDY]... AT 1:44 PM"

FIRST: DON'T YOU THINK THE ".... NO FREE SHRIMP FOR YOU." LINE IS A LITTLE AGGRESSIVE AND A BIT OF OVERKILL ??? I MEAN FREE SHRIMP IS FREE SHRIMP, RIGHT ???

SECOND: I DON'T THINK ANYBODY HAS A SHOT AT GETTING 60% IN THIS GOP PRIMARY RACE --- NOT TO WORRY, 40% PROBABLY WINS THIS THING....

On a lesser point raised by the Nobel Laureate "... AT 1:44 PM" --- both Bobby C. and Liam McC. have had several different kinds of jobs over the years, while John Q. chose a more singular and single-minded career path [no need to spell that out, everybody reading this blog knows what that means, some even better than I do].....

People should keep that in mind before that start calling other folks "... losers ..." in their deeply nuanced, but incisive commentary on threads like the instant one following my post about "... parties and rumors of parties..."

40% wins it. Does anyone think Capano will get more than 8% ?

Notice how Bob is always called the third candidate.

You know what that means?

BACKFILL: THE "LEADING WITH HIS CHINA CHIN" EDITION

MAYBE, MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF A JULY FUND RAISING EVENT ISN'T THE BEST WAY TO DEMONSTRATE THE VIVACITY OR EVEN THE VIABILITY OF QUAGLIONE'S "SLEEP EZE" CAMPAIGN

JOHN QUAGLIONE'S CAMPAIGN >>> FUNDRAISER <<< SCHEDULED FOR THURSDAY JULY 6TH AT PAESANO IS ALL WELL AND GOOD --- HOWEVER, STARTING WITH WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE A GLITZY ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE EVENT, SHOWS THAT IT ISN'T SOMETHING THAT WILL GET MANY HEARTS PUMPING FASTER OR MAKE ANYBODY'S BLOOD PERCOLATE LIKE THE ICONIC GLASS-DOMED POT IN THE OLD MAXWELL HOUSE AD [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BWEYjEQ75ZM]

The Quaglione flyer-like notice starts off with "PLEASE JOIN SENATOR MARTY GOLDEN..." (See Photo of "Vote - John Quaglione ***** FOR CITY COUNCIL" Campaign Flyer [https://www.facebook.com/Q4U2017/photos/gm.321846008228935/1512697112085879/?type=3&theater]).

PUHLEEEZZ !!! I can't believe that anybody with an ounce of loyalty to the candidate himself [And I am referring to John Quaglione, personally] truly believes that it's a good place to start any kind of piece, much less a fund raising announcement by mentioning Quags' longtime boss. Wouldn't any person really close to him, tell "All-growed-up-Johnny" that, for somebody whose day job for a very, very long time was as a paid toady to none-other than Marty Golden; starting any pitch for Quags with Marty Golden's name right up front is a blunder akin to leading with one's chin in any kind of real fisticuffs [who can forget Floyd Paterson's famous "China Chin" that he studiously protected with his peek-a-boo two hands up style.]

Then there are these nuggets: using the >>> Italian Flag <<< as a banner for the Quaglione campaign; and this obvious Italian affectation, "... $25 Bronzo/ $50 Argento/ $175 Oro..."; lastly, selecting a venue at a 13th Avenue site near the old Stars 'n' Stripes clubhouse..... Who is the Quaglione Campaign's senior adviser on all this, Dottore Professore Arnaldo Ferraro ???

And last but not least, there's this: "... R.S.V.P. to John Orlando - 646-261-1480 or jorlando@votejohnq..."

Bottom line, this piece of lit, website imagery or whatever shows quite graphically that "John" is fading fast, even more than his name in white did against the background of the white panel of the Italian flag mentioned above.

AND MOST IMPORTANT, PROTECT THAT CHINA CHIN [WORKING FOR MARTY] DON'T LEAD WITH IT.....

My take on Gales comment is he is not favorably inclined to support Marty Golden in his future run.

I think i changed my analysis and John will come in third and capano second.

Does anyone think Golden cares what Galewyn thinks? Galewyn been criticizing him for years. Has Golden been hurt or is he now more powerful then at any point in his career.

His guy runs county. He is high in the Senate. And no one runs against him. For a politician that sounds pretty good

RESPONSE: THE "I THINK I MIGHT BE LOSIN' THIS CROWD" EDITION

TO: A FEW OF THE MOST RECENT COMMENTERS ABOVE

--- SINCE WHEN DID THIS ALL BECOME ABOUT ME ? ? ?


If this this were only a war between me and Marty Golden, I think I would have taken him out much earlier in the game.....

Don't forget my feud started several years ago; at that time it included a State Senator, two County Chairmen and one State Chairman; and be sure not to forget Moron #1 & Moron #2, the guys from blog radio. Along the way there has been a lot of mixing and matching; and some of my "Gold Toe" friends are now paired up with my "Gold Line" enemies, and vice versa.
And don't get me started on my past and present congressional representatives.....

Along the way I've been with and without the "Tea Party" and the assorted "Tea Party" folks --- and I like it to stay just like that.....

But let's not talk about me..... What say, we stick with these three gay caballeros, as they vie for the GOP nomination for City Council from the 43rd District.....

WE HERE AT "THE BROOKLYN INDEPENDENT GOP FOUNTAINHEAD" HAVE TO AGREE THAT "JAMES MC CALL HAS ZERO INFLUENCE...." --- BUT HE DOES OCCASIONALLY SUFFER FROM SERIOUS BOUTS OF FLATULENCE, SO IT IS INDISPUTABLE THAT HE CAN MOVE A CROWD

I'm desperately trying to picture Golden & Kassar having laughs about anybody's irrelevance. Is there someone out there that might be able to paint a word picture for me of Kassar and Golden doing their laughter about irrelevance thing ???

Also, why don't you think it's possible or even likely that James McCall's "democratic friends" have already abandoned him once and for all ???

ANOTHER RESPONSE & BACKFILL: THE "MORE ON THE 'GORILLA HOUSE'" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 6:01 AM"

THANK YOU SO MUCH, YOU ARE CORRECT THE "GORILLA HOUSE" WAS NOT THE "GINGERBREAD-STONE HOUSE" --- BUT IT WASN'T "ACROSS THE STREET" EITHER --- THE ACTUAL "GORILLA HOUSE" WAS A MANSION ONCE-LOCATED AT 8365 SHORE ROAD [A MUCH BIGGER HOUSE ON A MUCH BIGGER PROPERTY THAN THE CURRENT HOUSE AND PROPERTY WITH THAT ADDRESS]

William and Gertrude Lintz were a well to do couple that lived at 8365 Shore Road in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, New York City. The house at that address was a waterfront mansion with a large "brownstone stoop." According to circus executive Henry Ringling North, the mansion was a thing of seedy grandeur straight out of a Charles Addams cartoon.

Gertrude Ada Davies ["Trudy"] Lintz was an English-American socialite and champion dog breeder, who was also somewhat infamous for keeping a menagerie of exotic animals on her Bay Ridge property and inside her house there. These exotic animals included several chimpanzees and two gorillas, "Buddy" and "Massa." The gorilla named "Buddy" was sold to the RBB&B Circus, where it became a major attraction known as "Gargantua," and "Massa" wound up in the Philadelphia Zoo, where it became the longest living gorilla in captivity up to the time of its death.

There was a 1997 movie about some of this stuff with Rene Russo playing Trudy Lintz and Robby Coltrane playing Dr. Bill Lintz. The movie was not beloved by either the critics or the public, nor was it particularly well known or widely distributed.

The actual "Gorilla House" would have been a good three or four blocks away from the "Gingerbread-Stone House" mentioned in my main post above, it's now separated by two city streets, and the whole building and Shore Road frontage of Fort Hamilton High School. The Lintz property at 8365 Shore Road was a mansion type home on a two acre lot; it has long since been demolished, subdivided and redeveloped. All of the new-style homes around Shore Road Lane, and the lane itself, were part of the former 8365 Shore Road Lintz property.

To Anon at 748.

You say "His guy runs county" - not true, he runs the County, which is a shame for Ghora since he is just a weak puppet - (does he even realize that yet?).

"He is high in the Senate" - only because he is a ruthless politician with no conscience who uses threats, intimidation and other horrible tactics to get what he wants.

"no one runs against him" - only because he cuts deals with the Dems every year, mostly ones which, well, dont past muster.

For a politician that sounds pretty good - I guess you are right here, because politicians are all pieces of _ _ _ _! anyway

Golden is in charge and noone can change that..McCall tried and failed, Eaton tried and failed and has given up on Bay Ridge politics, soon McCabe and Capano will fail also.

YOU SUFFER FROM SOME KIND OF DELUSION THAT JAMES MC CALL DIRECTLY TOOK-ON MARTY GOLDEN IN SOME KIND OF POLITICAL CONTEST, NO SUCH THROW-DOWN EVER HAPPENED

When you say that "...McCall tried and failed..." whatever are you yammering about ??? As far as we here at "THE BROOKLYN INDEPENDENT GOP FOUNTAINHEAD" know, whatever McCall "...tried..." to do in the past, he is still trying to do in the present.....

He might, in your opinion, be failing, but he certainly hasn't "failed" yet.

NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NICOLE THROWS KASSAR (AND THAT IS NOT EASY, LOL, LOL) AND LONG UNDER THE BUS BY SAYING SHE REGRETS VOTING AGAINST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE.

IN AN ARTICLE IN POLITICO, LONG SAYS.."HE PLANS ON HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH HER ABOUT HIS DISPLEASURE WITH HER STATEMENT. ITS A SORT OF SLAP AT CONSERVATIVE LEADERS IN THE STATE AND CITY OF NEW YORK."

OUCH....IS HE PISSED.

AND LONG'S LAPDOG KASSAR, AND KASSAR'S LAPDOG GHORRA MUST REALLY FEEL LIKE IDIOTS NOW...

THE PLOT WILL CERTAINLY THICKEN NOW AND I WONDER WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

I ALSO HEAR THAT THE STRONG ARMED TACTICS OF KASSAR AND LUTETIA ARE WEARING THIN ON THE NICOLE TEAM.

BOY DID SHE MAKE MANY MISTAKES HERE.. BUT SHE IS, AS GOLDEN HAS BEEN SATING FOR YEARS, NOT READY YET TO LEAVE THE ASSEMBLY.

The Conservatives couldn't care any less about Malliotakis views on gay marriage or anything else. This is classic strong arm tactics by Kassar and Long to put her in her place and make sure she hires more conservative cronies for her campaign. It's going to work like a charm. They own her and this is a little reminder.

Show them the Money!!!!!

That is all that matters.

Love how they use Mallitakis as props for McCabe and Concannon. This act of "treachery" against Mike Long by her is going to force her to create at least two more new staff jobs for the conservatives as well as buying two or three extra tables at the next reception

OMG

Didn't Joseph Lhota, the 2013 GOP candidate for mayor, make the identical pivot after he won his primary?

Anonymous said...

Nobody in the Conservative party cares what Malliotakis thinks about the issues, this is just their way of reminding her that they own her. They made her and they can break her much easier than even Lhota.

Anonymous said...

It speaks volumes about the downfall of the Republican Party in New York, that after fielding candidates like Giuliani and Bloomberg, we went down to the likes of Lhota, and now a woman whose only reason for running is to get some free publicity.

Anonymous said...

Nicole needs to grow into her new roles now that she has made her Jeffersonian move [Movin' on up to the East Side, to a deluxe apartment in the sky...].

"The Divine Miss M." of Staten Island has to be noteworthy and relevant in this mayoral race, and she needs to become one of the leaders of a new Republican Party in New York City and State.

It would be noteworthy and a grand gesture for her to tell Long, the tall one, and Kassar, the wide one, to go down to the Bay Ridge Pier, walk to the end and jump in to see who makes a bigger splash.

Many, if not all, of her Republican and Conservative base would LOVE her for doing that.

Nicole is the future, the other two are just part of the past.

Anonymous said...

Nicole has made some very, very, very big mistakes here. And the shame of it all, is that Nicole had such a bright future.

First mistake: she drank the Kassar Koolaide and has not cooked her own goose, so to speak;

She has put the "C" on her forehead and that is such a mistake for many reasons. One, she has been taking Kassar's abuse, threats and intimidation for months now. Two, she is now being scolded by Long for taking a position, which, quite frankly, is a position she needs to take in order to have any shot in the general election. Three, she has sold her soul to the two devils.

Query: What was she thinking when she brought Kassar into her campaign? He is toxic....

Pool Nicole. Could have made the right choices but didnt.

Now she will have to pay for her mistakes.

Nicole has the worst of both worlds. Conservative party label is the kiss of death in this town. Rudy and Bloomberg won by dodging it. Now she has conservatives (all 3 of them) knocking her.

That would be big, big news, and Nicole would become an immediate Republican super-nova rock star.

Anonymous said...

Nicole is a nice young woman, but the SI GOP shows her no respect, she has hooked her Mayoral wagon to the Cons Party and Kassar, and now that she got spanked by Long and Kassar, she is an even worse candidate.

Kassar is just using her to try to build his Cons Party to 5 people in Bklyn, and he is moving Ghorra around like a puppet, that is, when Golden isnt the Puppeteer.

Lets take bets here - I say she gets 18% in the general. That is the 3 Conservatives (borrowed from Anon at 728 above, Ghorra and a few more.

If Nicole declined the Conservative line, they'd likely retaliate by holding their noses and giving Bo Dietl a second chance.

The Cons are a shrewd and ruthless bunch.

Nicole will get what she deserves. She should have stuck with the GOP.

She can never get elected with the Cons party line like a noose over her head. They rope a doped her into believing that it would be good for her, so they could get more jobs and $$ for their party, but they have sold her down the river.

Saying "I will speak with her and express my displeasure" is very demeaning and hurtful to her and has definitley hurt her campaign.

Shame on them all

Anonymous said...

The Conservatives would have given it to Bo Dietl if he gave them more but everybody knows they need Nicole like oxygen. Bo Dietl would have never put up with all of their strong arm tactics, never would have had Jerry run his campaign and hire and spend at will like he is doing on Nicole's campaign. I guess even she has her limits and that is why they are trying to scare her now. Nicole would get more support if she dropped the Conservative line, and Bo Dietl wouldn't even take it at this point.

Anonymous said...

I hear Dietl offered to get his High School diploma if the Cons endorsed him. But they were not buying

Anonymous said...

If the Conservatives that they could a extract a penny more from Bo than from Nicole, Bo could be illiterate, a partial birth abortion supporter and free sex change operations for all plus hefty tax increases on everyone, and the Conservatives would come out and support him wholeheartedly, they'd even throw him a fundraiser at the gingerbread house.
