"25,000" --- It's not just some number

At the close of the NYSE today,  the big old companies' index was at 25,000+

This has been a record-breaking week for almost every major index.....   And several of these major indexes set new record highs again today

The "Trump Rally" is now more than a year old !!!!!



The Dow-Jones Industrials Index, which tracks 30 of the biggest well-established U.S. companies, rose 152.45 points today , or 0.6%, to 25,075.13.

7:16 is finally unmasking the elephant in the room. It's Bob and through four elections Bob has never answered the question. Does Bob Capano appreciate Bay Ridge? This was an issue that dogged one of Chuck Schumers last congressional races. It resulted in Schumer taking the gamble on a run for Senate.

Who is Capano, and exactly how did he make the Dow reach the 25,000 mark?

In answer to your silly question, Capano is Capano Who. Capano is the latest Doctor operating the TARDIS and there have been no Daleks roaming around Bay Ridge on his watch.

As predicted by some astute political insiders on this very blog, it's turning out to be a big year for Capano.
Meanwhile, has anyone heard from the other former Council candidates? Capanko Has parlayed his candidacy into some big things..brilliant

Anonymous said...

Everyone thinks 2017 was the year of Capano.

wait till 2018 takes off

Anonymous said...

I think Capano did this brilliantly- he knew he couldnt win the primary with Golden pushing Q and KAssar pushing McCab so he orchestrated a very high profile battle with Kassar & Long ("The Placeholder Deal") and a leaving of the shattered Brooklyn GOp to become a Reform Party leader and NOW in 2018- he is the Reform Chairman of Kings County already meeting with local & state candidates, and now a columnist read throughout Brooklyn..well played Mr. Capano

Cross the Chairman and face the consequences.

Chairman or no chairman sometimes pissing off so many people has unintended consequences which is why Bob and his little reform party are going to stick it to Kassar and KCCP. No more no show jobs for Jerry’s cronies means no more influence.

Anonymous said...

I hear Capano has built up a nice army of people screwed by Kassar through the years and now that they see the KCCP going down, they are happy to take their chances with Capano and the new, growing reform party

I hear Capanos army is so big they'll be taking over Fort Hamilton.

The Luthmann case has gone from bad to worse since Luthmann hired Aidala. The last court appearance Aidala forgot to ask for bail. Luthmann will be locked up for months.

RESPONSE: THE "IMPATIENT LITTLE BIRDIE" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 7:30 PM"

JUST WHEN I WAS GETTING READY TO SLAM "AAA" AGAIN, MY LITTLE BIRDIE BSI WHO TIPPED ME TO THE STORY STEALS MY THUNDER


Earlier today, the following information was contained in a release that was sent out by John Marzulli, who is now a PR guy for the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York. According to the Marzulli pitch, there had been a hastily scheduled telephone status conference this morning; it was arranged by Hon. Jack Weinstein, but it wasn't on the public calendar as far as I can tell.

None of the sides were physically present in Judge Weinstein's courtroom, and the lawyers for the defendants called in and waived their clients' appearances by phone.
Judge Weinstein set a trial date for 5/14/18. It was also agreed and ordered that any defendants' motions for separate trials were to be submitted within 20 days of today's conference.

The next court appearance on these matters was scheduled for 2/28/18, however Judge Weinstein did not orally order a specific time on that date. Instead Judge Weinstein told all the lawyers that he would issue an formal written order later containing the exact time of day for the 2/28/18 appearance(s) for all sides.

Oddly, no bail was discussed for either Defendant Luthmann or Defendant Padula; and no bail hearings are scheduled for either Luthmann or Padula, who at this time remain in custody.

So far "AAA" is performing exactly as one might expect a defense counsel for Richard Luthmann to act, when that defense counsel's real interests seem to be more closely aligned with Dennis Quirk, and Judy and Mike McMahon.

My source told me that, as an attorney himself, Luthmann should know how he wants his case defended and what he is doing to further that. Well, if what he plans as part of his defense strategy is to stay in jail until his trial, then he and his new legal representative, "AAA," are doing exactly what they need to do.

Anonymous said...

Luthmann had a reason for hiring Aidala and putting up a fight is not one of those reasons. This story not adding up. Luthmann is an attorney with no criminal record. Strong ties to the community are not in question. Nothing is in question. Luthmann never asked for bail, or, his attorney never asked for bail. Luthmann is still an attorney however he may find it difficult to prosecute the Federal lawsuit he filed on behalf of the whistleblower Polizotto while incarcerated. The lawsuit has tape of the statan island DA McMahons wife, Judge Judith McMahon, trying to fix cases and use court staff to raise money for hubby DA McMahons race in 2015.

9:46 has lots of facts but dusnt get it. Luthmann being put in jail ends the lawsuit and McMahon gets back into congress. Works out all around.

Great showing on your sponsored Facebook ad announcing your new column..almost 300 likes in 1 day it looks like..people are following you

Anonymous said...

Somebody or lots of somebodies need to get real about this Luthmann thing. The evil-doers were able to go after Richard Luthmann because he was more than anything else, a poseur. Furthermore, he was practically all alone and without any strong or reliable allies. As soon as he got caught out on a limb, he was like low-hanging fruit next to a sidewalk --- he was both easy to grab, and nobody was close enough to him to try to keep it from happening.

When this all went down, the first thing that the Reform Party leaders did was pee their pants. After that they just tried to make a hasty exit without anybody noticing anything.

A column in a paper nobody heard of and facebook. Kassar has elected Governors, a US Senator, Attorney General, Comptroller, a bunch of congressman.

Bob Capano lost 5 elections and if I put the % of vote capano got the blog administrator will delete it. I'll give you a hint. Bob got less than 2% but slightly more than zero.

Its not the size of Chairman Capanos followers its the loyalty and dedication to the Chairman and the American way.

Are you talking about Kassar's column??

Anonymous said...

"The American Way"! You aren't serious about that shiboleth of the left are you?
That's something that liberals like Norman Lear and Barbara Jordan latched onto in the early 80s to try to stop the Reagan Revolution. More likely, you relate it to around the time of the TV Superman character played by George Reeves in the early 1950s. It's really more than a hundred years older than that, back in the 1840s some people thought that it was a better phrase than "The American Dream."
I'm not one of those people, and not just because I wasn't there in the 1840s.

Craig Eaton and John Cats are good friends and Ed Cox feels like a fool that he went to bat for Ted Ghorra with John and Andrea. It's a lose lose for Ted as if he doesn't do exactly what Jerry tells him, Golden will turn on him and he will be ousted. If he listens to Jerry the John Quaglione supporters are going to go after him because there is no love lost after Ted supported Liam behind the scenes.

Anonymous said...

For all to see, Ted Ghorra is the GOP chairman and Craig is nobody..
I guess Cats can't be that loyal to Craig since Cats and Andrea still work closely with Ed Cox after he "went to bat for Ted Ghorra " as 628 pm says..guess it didn't bother Cats too much that Ed Cox left Eaton how to dry..besides Catsimatidis was relates to Cox through andrea..if John and Andrea really wanted to help Craig they could have stopped Cox from "Going to bat for Ted Ghorra"..obviously they did not..so much for "Craig Eaton and John Cats being good friends"...

Anonymous said...

A lot of Craig’s old friends even accepted Ted to put and end to all of the infighting but now see what a disaster it was after he bungled a very winnable city council race for Gentile seat. Everywhere else in Brooklyn was even worse. Jerry made Ted go all out for Liam and then made him ignore John’s race in the general.

RESPONSE: THE "LET'S STAY ON TOPIC --- AND THE TOPIC IS RICHARD LUTHMANN" EDITION

TO MOST OF THE UNFOCUSED CROWD COMMENTING ABOVE

THIS THREAD FOLLOWS A POST ABOUT RICHARD LUTHMANN; AND IT IS INTENDED TO DISCUSS FORMER REFORM PARTY "CHIEF COUNSEL" RICHARD LUTHMANN --- IT IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A RANT-SITE ABOUT BOB CAPANO AND/OR CRAIG EATON, OR TED GHORRA AND/OR JERRY KASSAR

One of my BSIs sent me a link for something called the "Ripoff Report" and some purported published consumer complaints about Luthmann's professional services as an attorney (See: https://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/richard-a-luthmann/staten-island-new-york-10314/richard-a-luthmann-richard-luthmann-rich-luthmann-luthman-tamara-moore-the-luthman-law-1397733). I have to agree with my best informed source on the Luthmann case that the
"... language in the complaints about Luthmann as an attorney and the time they were filed [in the "Ripoff Report"] looks contrived to screw Luthmann...."

Anonymous said...

Kassar had the Staten Island DA McMahon do a number on Luthmann. Kassar tweeted the day of Luthmanns arrest gloating about Luthmann doing hard time. As soon as the tweets were out the reform party dumped Luthmann. The reform party had it first battle with Kassar and they left there wounded on the field.
