IS THIS FOR REAL ??? --- OR --- IS IT A POLITICAL “DIRTY TRICK” ?????


The items shown below seem to ring the bell of  >>> UN-TRUTH <<< 

 WHAT DO  >>> YOU <<<  THINK  ?????

  

The following  “Comments”  appeared after an article on the  “Bklyner.”  blog:
“John Q   April 18, 2018 at 9:58 pm…   From the story, “A day ago, McCabe used a similar hashtag, #TimeForChange after a month-long Twitter hiatus.”
Liam took a month long absence for a month because he was in rehab again….   He talked about recovery when he announced his Council run last year and now will do the same….   Voters won’t be fooled. Liam needs to work out his very well publicized demons rather than running for office again….”  
“Ted G   April 19, 2018 at 2:34 pm  Steve Saperstein is the right choice for Republicans..Liam needs to take care of his personal issues and get a steady real job before running for office again..if this happened again to him after he lost last year, what will happen if he loses again this year….   Politics isn’t everything Liam….”  (See  “Comments”  following  “Republican Liam McCabe Likely To Run For Assembly Seat Vacated By Pamela Harris”  by Kadia Goba, 4/18/18, Bklyner.   [https://bklyner.com/republican-liam-mccabe-likely-to-run-for-assembly-seat-vacated-by-pamela-harris/?utm_source=Kings+County+Politics+Morning+Newsletter&utm_campaign=0a02d9d097-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2018_04_20&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_466a6c86df-0a02d9d097-324314417]).
Maybe it's just me,  but I don't believe that a real "Ted G" or  "John Q" made those comments.  However, some of you out there might see it differently.

I did hear today that the undisputed real Ted G is having serious second thoughts about his support of Liam and that John Q may be better,,

By the way, there was also a comment on Julianne Cuba's column in Brooklyn Daily comparing Liam and Kevin Peter Carrol. Kevin Peter is not running again for his Democratic District leader position in Bay Ridge to deal with his personal issues and the commenter observes perhaps Liam should also give politics a break

Anonymous said...

Q wants to run but Marty won’t let him so he is investing heavily in Steve’s campaign. No love lost between him and Liam. Teddy G totally on board with Kassar and backing Liam.

Anonymous said...

The sudden emergence of Liam is because Steve Saperstein wouldn’t commit to hiring all of Jerry’s cronies. Jerry already got Tobman on Marty’s payroll, but he refused to hire Steeplechase because of the bad blood from the primary. Now Jerry has to plug them into Liam’s and Nicole’s campaigns because Steve was afraid of offending Dan Donovan because Steeplechase is working for Grimm.

John Quaglione is a good family man and as clean as they come..Republicans should draft him now...Liam can't play voters for fools twice with the rehab again, plus his multiple arrests will come out this time

It's Liams seat for the asking and assorted snipers are trying to take him down. Its so obvious.

Q is not running and he cant stand the thought of another republican running.

Not so fast. Steve Saperstein is already putting a team together and we know he’s going to substantially raise more money than Liam. Q is supporting him. It’s going to be interesting to see what happens.

Liam had this mapped out last year as a fall back. That's why he replaced Lucretia with his cousin as leader. Saperstein gives Liam a victory in September.

NICE TRY FOLKS !!! EVERYBODY DUCKED MY QUESTION WHETHER THESE COMMENTS REALLY WERE FROM OUR WELL KNOWN "JOHN Q" AND "TED G" --- OR --- WERE THE COMMENTS KNOCK-OFFS, EACH UNDER A PHONIED-UP ID ?????


It's interesting to note that comment-maker "... at 4:25 PM" repeated the obviously anti-Liam information >>> previously deleted from another comments thread by me <<< about similar looking comments made following Julianne Cuba's 4/19/18 column [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/16/pl-party-line-2018-04-20-bk.html]. The names associated with those comments following the most recent Cuba column all appear to be "false flag" or swag names and places, made to look like Republican activists.

Sap had no primary and got crushed 2 to 1 against Deutschbag. He has a law degress and three other master degrees and hes a school teacher. Nice guy but a real zero.

Anonymous said...

Steve Saperstein got 40% against a popular incumbent with heavy union backing. Saperstein made the mistake of overpaying consultants forced on him by Jerry. He won’t make that mistake again. Liam on the other hand had the backing of the Conservatives including Mike Long and Jerry Kassar as well as Teddy Ghorra and Nicole Malliotakis, he still lost in a landslide to John. And yea Steve is highly educated and can raise a lot more money than Liam.

Saperstein got 38%, but, if Sapersteins plan is to get 40% I'd suggest he keep his day job.

John- this is what you are reduced to??
Very sad..

Anonymous said...

Last time Steve Saperstein was forced to use Jerry Kassar’s cronies who were only there to squeeze every last penny out of him. This time around he’s going to hire competent people. The only people cheering for Liam are the liberals on Twitter because this is a seat that can go Republican if we nominate the right candidate.

UPDATE, BACKFILL & A VERY IMPORTANT OBSERVATION: THE "SOMETHING HAS CHANGED" EDITION

THERE'S MUCH BIGGER NEWS ON THE MARTY GOLDEN STAFF FRONT THAN THE MOSTLY "FAKE NEWS" CONTAINED IN MOST OF THE ANONYMOUS COMMENTS ON THAT SUBJECT ON THIS THREAD ABOVE

THE FOLKS AT THE "HOME REPORTER" [REPORTER NEWS/ BROOKLYN MEDIA GROUP] TAKE A SERIOUS BIGHT OUT OF THE GOLDEN ASS OVER HIS (STAFF'S) LACK OF INFORMATION ABOUT LOCAL SCHOOL FUNDING

LATEST OF GOLDEN'S STONEWALLING ON EDUCATION FUNDING QUESTIONS IS ALMOST TWO MONTHS NOW --- HOWEVER, THE SAME REPORT SAYS SIMILAR GOLDEN STAFF DISSEMBLING ON EDUCATION FUNDING HAS GONE ON FOR >>> YEARS <<<


Some major questions are being raised and reported on from a usually tepid and benign piece of the local landscape --- the "HOME REPORTER".....

According to a very recent Brooklyn Reporter News article, there are some very serious questions about local education funding that Marty Golden's staff can't or won't answer. HMMMM !!!!! (See "Locals allege cold shoulder from state senator amidst wait for meeting" by Meaghan McGoldrick, 4/17/18, Brooklyn Reporter [http://brooklynreporter.com/story/locals-allege-cold-shoulder-from-state-senator-amidst-wait-for-meeting/]).

It isn't made clear whether it's staff incompetence or arrogance --- or that of THE BOSS himself (It's also not made clear who that BOSS might really be, either.) However, it seems that people who are very interested in local education funding think that State Senator Martin Golden is not delivering the goods for the public schoolers in his district --- and multiple attempts to get an accurate picture of what Marty Golden has actually done for local education have been rebuffed or ignored for a very, very long time.

Have you noticed that Golden and the Golden people just don't know how to handle criticism ???

Anonymous said...

What I notice is that Marty Golden is starting to make a bigger deal about more LEFTY-LIBERAL things, like his 'Environmental' event in Marine Park that even rated a robo-call.

Big news..Chairman Ghorra and the Brooklyn GOP are hosting a Spring Gala with Donald Trump Jr. and Sebastian Gorka...also, I hear one more nail in Eatons demise and relationship with Johnny Cats...we already saw Cats backing Golden and "mentoring" Andrea...now that has extended to Ted Ghorra as Cats got the guests for this event . .Eaton is officially on his own and out of the CATS universe

Anonymous said...

GM I think you’re overcompensating by attacking “fake news” of other posters. The Home Reporter story is what’s fake news. There is a group of leftist envirowackos who have no choice but to live in Bay Ridge because they can’t afford Williamsburg peddling these bs stories. These are the same people who protested in FAVOR of building the homeless shelter across from the school as well as the same group who want to literally ban ALL cars within NYC as in make them all disappear. They are Golden’s secret weapon and the gift that keeps on giving.

Sebastian Ghorka? What’s the matter Ann Coulter too expensive? And Donald Trump Jr I could understand inviting if for no other reason than he might give the Brooklyn GOP some money so they don’t have to work out of Dominic Sarta’s basement anymore. Even the Bronx GOP can afford to rent an Office. The Brooklyn GOP is a laughingstock. What’s next a meet and greet with Alex Jones?

Not sure why its news that Cats is backing Golden. Who was Cats expected to back?

To 10:59. Just desperation from people desperate to discredit Craig Eaton’s friendship with Cats. Cats is loyal and unfortunately for Jerry and Marty wont forget that when he ran for Mayor, Craig had his back while they spread any vicious rumor they could come up with against Cats.

You can't get away with bashing some nameless lefties on some unrelated issues, let's get back to the 'real news' about Golen, his staff and the public school money issue.
I'm no lefty, but I do know that When it comes to anything important for that mobster Nicky Mars, like protecting pedophile priests or getting money into the latest version of the failing Catholic schools system in Bay Ridge and the rest of the Brooklyn diocese, Marty Golden, his staff and the puppeteers who run the State Senator and his staff are ALL CATHOLIC, ALL THE TIME like the loyal Cathedral Club Cabalistas that they are. Thank God, by now the remaining good Republicans and and Libertarians all around know who they are.
HINT - Mike Long is at the top of the list.

Eaton is totally discredited about his relationship with Cats..he still goes around saying he is close to him and cats listens to him..

Do we really think Eaton wanted Cats to so publicly support Marty, in fact calling Cats a mentor to his daughter...NOT

People laugh behind his back when Eaton mentions his relationship with Cats..

After this GOP gala where Cats bought several tables, I can't wait for the photos of Cats, Andrea, Ghorra and Marty to come out..

But Cats still listens to Eaton.

Idiot, there is no such thing as the Republican Committee of Kings County.

I guess he didnt learn that in school to become a member of Grimm's "Committee to Fill Vacancies" which was the only political role (if you can even call it that) that he ever held before becoming Chair.

You guys are panicking about Craig’s friendship with John because you know how tenuous is your grip on power. Even a lot of the people who strongly opposed Craig now realize it was a mistake to back Ted. We are the only Borough GOP without an office. We lost a very winnable City Council race because Ted didn’t have the guts to put Jerry in his place when he was forced to back Liam. The party provided no support in the general and even the Bronx can afford to rent office space, while our address is Dom Sarta’s basement, and these clowns are bragging about Sebastian Ghorka?

All those who strongly opposed or supporter Craig will be at the gala!

Yea great idea by Teddy to invite Sebastian Gorka, not a bad guy,smart and talented, but you think when Bay Ridge one of the few Republican leaning areas left in Brooklyn had largest population of Arabs, it’s a good idea to feature Gorka? You can’t make this stuff up people you really can’t.

RESPONSE: THE "DELUSIONAL ILLUSION" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 5:25 AM"

THAT ANYBODY MIGHT WRITE: "LIAM AND GRIMM RULE BROOKLYN" IS SIMPLY >>> AMAZING <<< TO ME..... THERE IS ABSOLUTELY SO MUCH >>> WRONG <<< WITH THAT SENTENCE THAT I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN..... (THAT'S RHETORICAL, I ACTUALLY DO)


Let me start by saying that I think it is possible that either or both of the men mentioned could >>> WIN <<< their primaries, if there are any, or the general election(s) for the offices mentioned for them in 2018. Furthermore, let me add that I actually like one of them, but not the other..... However, for all of that, I do not support either one of them, even a little bit, because simple morality and common decency keep me from doing so.

"Liam and Grimm" are both very troubled souls. Doubtless, each of them is consumed by more demons than the Gerasene (Gadarene) Swine; and there are so many evil spirits lurking within each/both of them, that those demons collectively share the name "Legion" --- just as they did in biblical times..... All of this is manifest in many of the stories about "Liam and Grimm" that have appeared in the media, many of the comments about them that I have seen on this blog and elsewhere; and most important, my own observations of each of them, up-close and personal. (And that's why I cannot support either one of them.)

"RULE" ????? It's a great-sounding word that simply does not signify at all (except in very loose slang) in/for/about this great democratic republic of ours, or any political subdivision within it. ENOUGH SAID !!!!!

It has been written, that someone once said "... Better to rule in Hell, than to serve in Heaven..." --- but "... BROOKLYN" ????? Even if "RULE" did have some common meaning, "BROOKLYN" cannot be ruled --- certainly, not for very long. Just ask Clarence Norman and "Charlie Joe" Hynes..... (I also note that NYC's "BOSS TWEED" appropriately wound up buried in Brooklyn; and it's only a stone's throw from where I most likely will be.)

So, what more can I say, other than that whoever said, "Liam and Grimm rule Brooklyn" is delusional or trying to create some kind of not-so-grand illusion --- more likely, they are engaged in their own up-close and personal delusional illusion.

It’s true that when running for City Council, Saperstein was a comical puppet of Jerry Kassar and that’s why he had his falling out with Bob Capano. Apparently he’s learned his lesson. Time will tell. As for Grimm and Liam ruling Brooklyn maybe that’s true if meant in the sense of ruling as losers. Both got crushed in Brooklyn every time they ran.

I like the factual post at 5:28 today.

The Fake News postings about Eaton and Cats are actually funny.

The proof is all over Cats' FB page. Eaton was sitting next to John and his wife at the Queens 9-11 Memorial Dinner at Gotham Hall on Wednesday night; and last night Eaton, his wife and two of his own Brooklyn GOP guests sat at John Cats personal table at the Inner Circle Dinner (and JC had 4 tables).

Didnt see Ghora, Kassar or Golden at Cats's table or even in the room....

Big shots like them, at least in their own minds, and they didnt make anyone's cut to get invited. Shows where the leadership in Brooklyn is...probably at the Bay Ridge Manor...


Oh well, I guess some of you are just giving us Fake News again.

The same poster posted back a few months ago that Cats would be "sitting with Ghorra and Golden at the Brooklyn GOP event - guess that didnt happen.....the photos of the event didnt support that Fake News did it.

You see, photos are good proof of what actually happens. Not Fake News like the poster at 6:55 and 11:07, etc etc.

You know you are not factual...but I guess you dont have a life.

Marty Golden is nothing special. He’s the product of a super gerrymandered district made specifically with laser like precision to make sure a Democrat can’t beat him. This has at the expense of shredding all other Republican areas into Democratic strongholds. It’s a good bargain for the Dems. One Republican Senator and a guarantee that there are no other districts comprised that could possibly let a Republican win.

Mega got caught by surprise in 1982.

It was his mailing, they told him, it's yours unless you tell us not to do it.

Mega told them to use the money to mail for their other candidate. And on Election night Mega came up short by 292 votes.

As for John’s right hand man, I’ll give you a hint, while you are way off on the name of John’s right hand man you did get at least one letter right in the name. John’s team played a key role when he ran for Mayor, they won’t forget that Ghorra was a stanch Lhota supporter posing as a random guy for pictures in ads. So much for his “longtime” friendship with “Cats right hand man”. And after the Gorka fiasco Craig’s friendship with Cats is the least of Teddy’s worries.
