A >>> THROW-DOWN* <<< is a >>> THROW-DOWN* <<< is a >>> THROW-DOWN* <<< it's as simple as that


Bob Capano couldn’t be clearer than he was in his "The Right View" column in  the current edition of  Courier Life’s  "Brooklyn Daily"  ---  “….  [T]his could be the year that the Marty Golden Era ends….”


There’s lots of simple meat and potatoes in what the man of many hats,  Robert Capano,  is serving up this week as a Brooklyn columnist and a local political observer  ---  but how far can all of that be from how he sees things going as the Reform Party’s Brooklyn Chairman ???
 


The whole column is definitely worth a read,  but Capano certainly bell’s Marty G’s cat with this:   “…  [R]ight now, Marty is weakened by a fractured Brooklyn GOP, thanks to his very public split with former Republican leader Craig Eaton, a former Community Board 10 chairman and well-respected civic activist. A united Brooklyn Republican Party would be an asset to Marty this year….   On top of that are the 67-year-old Golden’s recent missteps. He referred to then-Council candidate Justin Brannan as ‘fat boy’ during an endorsement event for his deputy chief of staff in that race. In December, he was accused of impersonating a police officer in order to get a bicyclist to move out of a bike lane his car was driving through. In 2012, after intense criticism, Marty’s office had to cancel an etiquette class he scheduled for women to help them to ‘walk up and down stairs elegantly’ and ‘sitting, standing, and walking like a model.’ Finally, Marty recently axed a long-time aide for sharing Facebook posts comparing a survivor of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting and gun control advocates to Hitler and Nazis.   Put it all together and you may have a perfect storm that could lead to the end of the ‘Golden Era.’…”  (See  “Is the ‘Golden Era’ coming to an end?  by Bob Capano,   4/11/18,   Courier Life’s Brooklyn Daily   [www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/15/all-right-view-marty-golden-2018-04-13-bd.html]).




BOB SAYS LOTS OF GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE DEMS’  CANDIDATES


Bob didn’t just limit himself to negative observations about “MARTY”…..   He also had some good things to say about Steve Gounardes and Ross Barkan.   It pretty much went like this:
“….   Democratic opponents are more aggressive than ever, having been boosted by the truckload of negative press Marty has been hit with. And it doesn’t hurt that many political wonks agree that the district, made up predominantly of Democrats to begin with, has tilted further to the left since 2012….   Throwing his hat in the ring for a second time, Andrew Gounardes, who received 42 percent of the vote when he ran against Golden in 2012, is the strongest Democratic challenger. Gounardes has raised more than $114,000 according to the last financial filing, is the Brooklyn Borough President’s counsel, has a respected civic record, and is a son of Bay Ridge’s large Greek-American community. Journalist Ross Barkan is also scheduled to run, setting up a primary that could, at the very least, get both of their names out there…   Now that the Democratic schism has been healed, if two special state Senate elections on April 24 go to the Democrats, the chamber will have 31 Democrats, 31 Republicans, and one Simcha Felder, who caucuses with the GOP. But if state Dems also sense Gounardes has a chance to win, expect a huge influx of money and manpower into his campaign….”

*As used in the title of this post above,   “THROW-DOWN”  refers to the phrase  "To throw down the gauntlet", which means to issue a challenge. In medieval times a knight would throw his armored glove, or gauntlet, at the feet of another knight to challenge him to combat. If the knight took up the gauntlet he accepted the challenge.

Gournardes 114k is quite respectable. Greeks know how to stretch a buck.

Barkan has not mentioned anything about money. Does he have any? Is his race the type that ends when the real work starts?

UPDATE: THE "THIS IS BIG" EDITION

THINGS ARE STARTING TO MOVE VERY FAST IN THIS YEAR'S SENATE RACE IN THE 22nd SD

DEM COUNTY LEADER FRANK SEDDIO SAYS THAT HE IS BACKING >>> STEVE GOUNARDES


Does anybody else see that this is a major change from the recent history in the once always Golden state senate district --- a pre-primary pat on the back by the Brooklyn Democrat Chairman for a single Democrat running against the incumbent Republican Marty Golden, with an expression of hope that there won't be any waste of resources in a primary --- along with that same leader talking about Marty Golden's stepping down if the Republicans lose their non-majority control over the NYS Senate ?????

Read all about it in the wonderful column by the lovely Julianne Cuba (See "Dem boss takes sides in state Senate primary' by Julianne Cuba, 4/12/18, Courier Life's Brooklyn Daily [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/15/pl-party-line-2018-04-13-bk.html]).

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 1:41 AM"

WHEN YKW LET ME KNOW ABOUT HIS COLUMN EARLIER THIS WEEK, HE NEVER MENTIONED ANY "... NICE STUFF [THAT HE WROTE] ABOUT GOLDEN..." --- BESIDES ANYTHING LIKE THAT WAS JUST WINDOW DRESSING --- I REPORTED ON THE REAL "MEAT AND POTATOES" OF THE COLUMN IN QUESTION

BTW, THANK YOU FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY TO PUT OUT SOME REAL INSIDER NEWS --- IF YOU WANT THE REAL CONTEXT OF/FOR THE BOB CAPANO COLUMN THIS WEEK, YOU DO HAVE TO READ THE JULIANNE CUBA COLUMN THIS WEEK

This is the key paragraph of Cuba's column that you have to pay attention not to miss --- it's as important as anything that she had to say about Seddio: ".... Gounardes lost to Golden in 2012 — and was reportedly pushed to run again by supermarket mogul and former Republican mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis — and is now taking another shot at it after announcing his campaign following a slew of controversies stemming from the sitting pol’s office...." (The Julianne Cuba column I am referring to was cited in my comment above).

Is this a Capano, Eaton, Catsimatidis hit on Golden-- seems like too many coincidences here with Capano column, Julianne Cuba article talking about Cats pushing Gournades, etc. etc.

BTW, you call it a "hit"; I call it some people just doing their bit..... AND, what say I ????? I thought I had my say about all of this in my most recent two comments up above; also now, here.....

Anonymous said...

Silly people. You haven’t seen a hit by Cats. Always understated, if Cats decided Golden had to go he would have funded a real candidate. Cats always felt betrayed by Gounardes family when they were going to his meetings while backing de Blasio and Cats volunteers ran into Andrew and Bay Ridge Dems passing out de Blasio literature.

Here's my two cents, for all the Sleepless in Seattle crowd in Brooklyn, Marty Golden's goose is pretty far from being cooked yet, but things are looking a little bit loosey-goosey, if you know what I mean.
Now is the time for Marty to make sure Barkan gets a couple of 'friends' to help with his campaign irregardless of what Marty really thinks about Barkan.

I must please thank the Blog Aministrator for not deleting our comments which are calling into question Liam and his mental and physical heath. We all know Liam has struggled with demons time and again but recently he fell off the wagon again and quite hard may I add. Now he is back home and ready to run for office again? I say why not first focus on getting your life back on track and patching things up with your fiance and her mom who lets you live in her house rent free? There are more important things in Life than running for a measly $79,000 Assembly seat and one that you will surely lose at may I add. Ghorra should be ashamed. Ghorra is enabling Liam by clearing the field and letting him run. Shame on Ghorra I say! Shame!

Liam might do well to sit this one out. He could survive getting crushed by Q in the City Council Primary but losing to Saperstein even by a couple of votes would really harm his future prospects. And last year he had Long and Kassar backing him with all their resources including their headquarters, Ghorra and Malliotakis backing him on the down low and he still got crushed. Sounds like he has to sort through a lot of issues not having to do with running for Office. It’s time for Teddy Ghorra to show some backbone and tell Jerry to quiet down.

The Brooklyn GOP is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Brooklyn Conservatives this whole thing with Ghorra shoving Saperstein aside like garbage proves it.

Liam has lost lots of support with his recent activities. He needs to go away

I don't care who Liam's got or don't got, because Liam thinks he's going to win without BIG TIME fundraising. That means that Liam will lose badly, meaning the worst ever by a Republican in a 46th AD race, contested or uncontested.

Let's talk to Liam McCabe in language that should be very familiar to him, "Liam, your recent approach to recovery, including more politics right away after rehab, that's really STINKIN' THINKIN'."

Quaglione will take the gloves off and remind voters about the whole struggle and recovery speech before the Council race and know will hear same thing before Assembly race..Liam thinks people will feel bad for him, eve admire him for recovery efforts, but that only works once..Q beats Liam by a bigger margin..I also heard today that Ghorra is getting a lot of heat for saying he is supporting Liam

Whether Liam wins or not whether he gains or loses supporters, is not the point. Even people who helped Ted become Chairman are sick of what he’s letting Jerry do to the party.

Nobody cares about Ghorra and nobody cares about what you say Kassar is doing to the party. All the remaining Republicans care about now is how much are they going to get when they sell their homes.

6:57 apparently since Justin barely won after a massive concon turnout there are a lot of Republicans not interested in selling their homes. Ghorra keeps this up Marty will make him a convenient scapegoat for unity.

7:19, I love how you Republicans try to spin losses into wins. Good luck with all that in 2018. AHAHAHAHA!

So far u understand Chairman Capano has met with Chris McCreight and Steve Saperstein about the 46th. Whether this was a formal interview or not I don't know, but it's clear Capano will be involved deeply

Capano is a sore loser who for some reason clings to trying to pretend that anyone in Brooklyn cares who he is. Brannan barely won his seat in a NYC climate so hostile to Republicans not seen since the Watergate era. Which is why he had his hangers on plant that obviously bogus story about him becoming speaker. Staffers from other City Council offices could be heard laughing so hard you’d think Seinfeld came out of retirement.

Then why is Golden, McCabe, and Saperstein calling Capano for his endorsement????
Ahahahaha

Here's a big fact that is obvious even from the comments on THIS BROOKLYN REPUBLICAN blog (are there any others?) - the Bay Ridge Dems are growing in power and on the march to take every elected office in Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights - while at the same time the Brooklyn Republicans are in complete meltdown, and Golden's operation is fraying because of the Republican meltdown.
This is a good guess - the Liam McCabe reboot is nothing but a "Hail Mary" move to save Golden or something extorted by Liam or somebody behind Liam as a condition of Liam's crowd supporting Marty.

Let's keep talking about Liam, because the whole Bob & Q rat-a-tat-tat, and Gail's Storm of blog administered removals is B-O-R-I-N-G M-E T-O D-E-A-T-H.

Doesn't Liam know that there are lots of Republican voters that WILL NOT VOTE FOR HIM - PERIOD. That's one of the reasons Q crushed him in the 2017 primary for City Council.

Here's news, most of the same Republicans won't vote for Liam in a general election either, because they see Liam as part of the Conservative Party takeover of the Brooklyn Republican Party apparatus.

Golden will scapegoat Teddy Ghorra for all of the division and replace at the next reorg with whatever lackey Jerry can come up with next.
