So is it going to be "Felder vs. Golden" inside the GOP caucus


Right now,  it's boiling over inside the Brooklyn GOP and the head of the Brooklyn Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar  ---  And it's all about the "Frankenstein" fellow-caucassing state senator,  nominal Democrat Simcha Felder and the end of speed cams in school zones all over New York 


State Senator Simcha Felder,  until 2018 the "D-R-C" state Senator from Boro Park and surrounding ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities,  has held the NYS Senate, and virtually the whole of NYS government, hostage throughout 2018 over an item of extreme parochial interest  ---  and something quite outrageous in its own right


HOWEVER  ---  LOCALLY,  IT WILL NOT BE SIMCHA FELDER THAT PAYS THE PRICE FOR THIS OUTRAGE  ---  IT WILL STATE SENATOR MARTIN GOLDEN


Last Friday, the NY Post did its lead Editorial all about it  ---  it stated the case quite completely,  but succinctly



Sometimes the most interesting fight is on the undercard.

The upcoming Democrat primary between Andrew Gounardes and Ross Barkan is heating up and might be quite interesting by September;  however, the hottest thing around right now is something that doesn't even look like it should be a fight on any card  ---  "Golden v. Felder"  ---  It's being fought deep inside the GOP and Conservative Party club houses or cloak rooms or phone booths or wherever else the people who count hash these things out.....

Until now, even though State Senator Felder's intransigence has been mentioned, it has not been the main story in why speed cams will no longer exist in school zones throughout NY State.  The NY Post Editorial has changed that narrative somewhat.

Here's exactly what the Editorial Board at the Post signed on for:

"If a car going more than 40 mph hits an 8-year-old, that child’s likely going to be maimed or killed. And The Post clocked multiple vehicles in the high 30s and low 40s Thursday — all in a school zone whose speed cameras stand disabled because the state Senate didn’t reauthorize them....   In all, we recorded dozens of speedsters rushing past PS 124 in Park Slope, each a potential killer if school were in session....   Which is why the Senate has to come back and pass the speed-camera bill before school starts up again in the fall....   Happily, the Times-Union reports that Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan is already canvassing his members about coming back for a special session. Since the bill has broad bipartisan support, it should be easy enough to get a quorum to do the job....  [***  >>> By all accounts, the holdup has been Sen. Simcha Felder, the Democrat who provides the key vote to make Flanagan majority leader. <<<  *** ;  emphasis mine] Yet it’s not just unconscionable to give Felder (or anyone else) a veto here, it’s political suicide: Every vulnerable Republican will face opposition ads charging that senator with endangering kids’ lives. And if they lose one seat, Felder is irrelevant....   Yes, the blame here goes far beyond Flanagan or Felder: City Hall’s efforts to lobby the Legislature range from vacuous to imperious, neither of which helps get things done. And the Assembly has its own long string of failures to tighten traffic-safety laws....   But it’s up to Flanagan now: Pass the camera bill, or wind up with blood on your hands...."  (See "Albany must fix the speed camera mess"  [entitled "Kids Before Politics" in the NY Post print editions]  NY post Editorial Board, 7/26/18 [print editions 7/27/18],  NY Post/ Opinion/ Editorial   [https://nypost.com/2018/07/26/albany-must-fix-the-speed-camera-mess/]).


MARTY GOLDEN IN THE CROSS HAIRS  [Along with Felder]

Make no mistake about this   ---   the speed camera issue will be a big deal in any 2018 general election between Marty Golden and either Andy-boy Gounardes or Barkin'-at-the-moon Barkan.  If the Flanagan and the GOP leadership in the state senate (including Marty himself) don't fix this,  Marty Golden will lose the 22nd S.D. seat for the GOP,  once and for all,  and it will happen in 2018.

That's why this is a fight between Golden and Felder.  And even though it's buried in the undercard, it's a fight that Marty must win to survive.....

Gail, the school zone speed-cam fiasco is the perfect storm for all of us in the anti-Golden alliance. It shows how Marty Golden and all of his Republican allies in the State Senate are the frauds that they always have been when it comes to children's safety issues. It also renews all of the questions surrounding the coverup of Golden's vehicular homicide due to his high speed driving in Bay Ridge.

10:23 for some reason Barkan's "better things to do" includes hanging out at this Republican blog for hours at a time hoping to get some attention since the voters keep shutting the door in his face when he starts talking.

The democratic primary for senate ended when the national group grassroots endorsed Barkan. A network of activists with 19 registered chapters in Brooklyn. Gournardes was relying on the same old tired pols who backed him in his losing senate race 6 years ago. Times have changed. Bay Ridge has changed.

Anonymous said...

"Bay Ridge has changed" has been the rallying cry of the Democrats for the last forty years. Hasn't changed that much politically since Democrats keep losing and even Brannan only won by 500 votes and he had all the headwinds of the ConCon. Ross fell for this shpiel and now finds himself in a place where nobody cares about his views with only a fraction of the money and support Gounardes has and ready to take an absolute shellacking on primary day.

Everybody, stop the BS. Facts are facts.

At this stage of the 2018 campaign, Steve Saperstein does not have one thing going on with or for his run for the Assembly in the 46th AD, inside the GOP or anyplace else, that looks, sounds or feels like a winning effort. He isn't even close to the things that Quaglione was doing one year ago in much of the same geographic territory.

Steve Saperstein will be lucky if he attains the latest Republican election standard for a
"good showing" in the 46th, 40%. If he winds up running against Ethan Lustig-Elgrably, Saperstein's numbers will more likely be in the low 30s, because Mark Treyger will want to prove that he's a powerhouse all over the 46th AD like he is from Seagate across to Manhattan Beach and everything south of Bay Parkway.

Anonymous said...

Cats and Eaton are good friends and both happen to be very shrewd politically. They're not going to go against Golden unless there is strong evidence that he could lose, and so far Andrew and Ross are frightening no one and neither is all of the internal polling which is showing a big win for Golden. That could change however if Cats decides to raise $250,000 against Golden as he had vowed to do after Jerry went after him when he ran for Mayor. And the way things are looking now, the contest between Andrew and Ross is going to divide the party and it is going to make what happened between that fat turkey Justin and Pastor El-Yateem look like a love fest.

In 2018, that proper Greek ruler will be Andrew Gounardes, and Marty Golden will be no more than yesterday's fake news.

RESPONSE: THE "CUT THE CRAP !!!" EDITION

TO: THE DELETED COMMENTERS ABOVE & THE REST OF MY FOLLOWERS

WE DON'T NEED THE REPETITIVE PUERILE PERSONAL INVECTIVE THAT KEEPS CREEPING INTO ONE COMMENTS THREAD AFTER ANOTHER ON THIS BLOG


You don't have to be nice. You can even choose to be disagreeable when you disagree.

However, long strings of the same old tired ad hominem jibes and similarly thoughtless rejoinders that long-ago were past their "sell-by date" won't make the cut here.

UPDATE: THE "STILL MORE FROM CAPANO" EDITION

>>> COLUMNIST <<< BOB CAPANO USES HIS WEEKLY COLUMN AS A BULLY PULPIT TO TAKE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE ROSS BARKAN TO THE WOODSHED


Taking over a slot once held by Jerry Kassar as Brooklyn's top self-declared conservative-leaning columnist, Reform Party Chairman Bob Capano showed his growing power and influence by putting upstart leftist candidate Ross Barkan in his place.

Here's how Capano began hitting the Barkan nail with his columnist's hammer --- "We got an example of this unfortunate new normal in political campaigns here in Brooklyn last week, where this columnist was cast as the star of the show.... One of the Democratic candidates in Brooklyn’s 22nd Senate District, Ross Barkan, attacked me as “anti-immigrant” to score some political points.... Some background is needed to understand Barkan’s script. The Brooklyn Reform Party, of which I am chairman, voted to give a Wilson-Pakula authorization to both Republican state Sen. Marty Golden and Barkan’s Democratic primary opponent, Andrew Gounardes. If both would have accepted this authorization it would have resulted in a Reform Party primary between the two in September. However, Golden declined this authorization, while Gounardes accepted...." (See "Barkan up the wrong tree: The slippery slope candidate Ross is walking down" by Bob Capano, 8/2/18, Courier Life's Brooklyn Daily/ Opinion/ "The Right View" [https://www.brooklyndaily.com/stories/2018/31/all-right-view-capano-vs-barkan-bd_2018_31.html]). See the rest for yourself, it's shows what Capano is capable of doing from his new Olympian perch.

Having his own journalistic background, Ross Barkan should have seen this coming. Now, let's see what he does back, if anything. I suspect that he will up the ante for Capano's next hand. This could be some real good stuff, indeed.....

Capano's hard hitting and provocative columns are certainly the top in Brooklyn today, replacing Kassar. They are spread these days like wild fire on social media, etc.

In this column he takes shots at both Golden and Barkan, wow!

And it it read all over Brooklyn

Who can blame anyone for being envious of Ross.

11:27 is so right.

Marty is an easy target and Barkan is the only one to take him on.

Is Craig Eaton with Barkan

Anonymous said...

If you know Craig Eaton, you know that Ross Barkan has a better shot at his support than somebody whose initials are M(arty). G(olden). But you can be sure that, because of Catsimatidis, Eaton is probably holding back for Gounardes in the fall.

Anonymous said...

Sorry to disappoint certain people but the polling for Marty against either Barkan or Gounardes is very strong including a poll by Democratic committee which is why DC 37 already endorsed Golden. Couple that with imbecile Justin Brannan’s scorced earth attacks against all Republicans in the borough and the more likely it is that Cats and Eaton will sit this one out. Gounardes win doesn’t seem possible and too many mixed allegiances make it unlikely that it is a risk either Cats or Eaton will take.

Cats is with Golden ..Eaton is on the sidelines

Anonymous said...

Cats and Eaton aren’t endorsing Gounardes or Barkan they are friends and on the same page about this.

Anonymous said...

So Eaton is following Cats and with Golden..good to know 615

Anonymous said...

Barkan never heard of Eaton

Anonymous said...

If Cats and eaton made an endorsement in dem senate primary does anyone think it would change one single vote?

Anonymous said...

DC 37 and 1199 endorsed Golden. Those endorsements count.

Anonymous said...

Cats and Eaton by default are with Golden

Looks like Justin has been crying to Treyger again. After becoming the laughinstock of South Brooklyn by forcing his own chief of staff out of the Assembly race, Treyger has to put on a dog and pony show outside of Golden’s Office to make it look like Justin got more than the reported free box of twinkies for selling out McCreight.

Anonymous said...

Justin gave mccreight a job. Is he also responsible for getting him elected to office?

Anonymous said...

Justin would be no where without Chris doing all the dirty work. Truth is Justin tried to help his boy by keeping Andrew out of the race and it worked but that’s all he can do is basically lie to gullible people. When it came time to face Treyger fatboy was told to go home and get his shine box. And that’s exactly what he did.

Last week Marty Golden said that he is happy being DC-37's voice in Albany. You can't get more un-Republican or un-Conservative than that. How long are Republicans and Conservatives going to keep letting a back-stabbing cock-sucker like Marty Golden do stuff like this.

Anonymous said...

Golden has a coalition of democrats, labor, activists.

He'll win by the usual 8 to 12 points.

Anonymous said...

Golden will win by at least 15 probably more. Just like last time. Fat ass Justin will make his usual excuses happy that he didn't have to work too hard to pretend he was helping Andrew. Max Rose will also lose and fat ass Justin will tell Mike DeCillis that next time he really will support him as long as he keeps doing Justin's bidding.

Anonymous said...

Golden will win by at least 95 points but if McCreight ran Golden would have lost.

In all seriousness, I hear Saperstein campaign so far has no plan, strategy , or realistic goals for fundraising or mail..it's what happens when you let the children run the show

Anonymous said...

As of today Steve Saperstien has

1. raised sufficient funds to win

2. secured the nominations of all relevant political parties

3. hired the right staff with a winning track record

Meanwhile, the democrats are cutting each other to ribbons

Liam lost his own race and big with Grimm

The interns never won

What winning track record?????

Anonymous said...

The "winning" track record is in Steve's overactive imagination and faulty perception of politics.

Anonymous said...

The winning track record is Steve has secured the right party lines for a win in November. Grimm and Liam never did that.

Anonymous said...

Looks like Sap has it all together

As pathetic as Grimm and Liam may be, Steve is even more pathetic and delusional.

Seems like Golden campaign got their asses handed to them at stroll again tonight being vastly outnumbered and outhustled by Gounardes and Barkan volunteers. Quaglione crying about it all over social media.

Anonymous said...

Steve will win in a district that he ran in before against two zero democrats. Four lines , solid fundraising, and he is genuinely a nice guy that connects with voters. The guy is working his ass off and good for him.

Barkan has the big Mo

Steve ran for City Council with much more money in a district that voted 75% for Trump and he couldn’t get 40% of the vote against a candidate that makes Ethan and Mathylde look like rock stars. Seems like in the general he’ll do worst than his buddy Ray Denaro did against Treyger. Another wasted opportunity.

Anonymous said...

Golden crew all over internet crying about what happened to them tonight. Pitiful operation. Boss Brannan showin em how its done. Now that he and Treyger are on the same team watch out.

8:37 Hey Justin. Got nothing better to do than troll blogs at night? Go take another look in the fridge and occupy yourself with the cakes and cookies in there. And don’t lie everyone knows you and Mark are further apart than ever. Sweet dreaming about that pulled pork sandwich.

Steve won the assembly district overlap going against democrat incumbent with orthodox Jewish vote was too much plus all of the unions. Are you mad when you ran you only got 30 percent against Cymbrowitz even better for GOP?

Hooray for the Democrats who are ready to drive the Republicans from the streets of Bay Ridge with 'Truth Squads", and nobody cares what John Quaglione thinks about it.

Anonymous said...

Coming this fall, a way for Republicans to work openly against Republican candidates they don't support in the general election and get away with it. Ahahahahaha..

Anonymous said...

As of today Steve Saperstien has

1. raised $50,000, when $250,000 was the minimum required for a real race

2. secured the nominations of all irrelevant political parties

3. gotten some off-the-rack help from the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee, the Special Olympics of legislative PACs in New York. Plus interns!
