Is Marty Golden Behind ?????

---  The Wheel of his car all around Bay Ridge, that is.....



Seems that Bay Ridge is fighting back  ---  with "Fight Back Bay Ridge" doing a running social media commentary (and keeping score) on State Senator Golden's most recent reckless driving exploits  around his neighbors in the neighborhood where he lives and does a lot of his "work" 


So far,  it's "only" things like popping wheelies near large gatherings of  pedestrians to grab good parking spaces  [isn't double parking working anymore ???]  ---  And gunning his vehicle to beat red lights, here and there.



This could get very interesting before all is said and done......


More soon.....

Please don’t encourage the psychotic trolls at Fight Back Bay Ridge. Several people are considering getting restraining orders. Justin has lost his shit ever since Fake Marty Golden page was deleted on Twitter and is egging on a lot of the unstable people especially from FBBR. Only a matter of time before one of these crackpots crosses the line gets in trouble with Police. Maybe they’ll be happy to tell them how Justin actively encourages them.

The cluelessness that is the Golden political operation knows no bounds of stupidity or banal messaging. It's bad enough they can't cobble together a decent poster or palm card, but their Facebook videos and fundraising appeals show absolutely no insight or skill.

Why would we expect them to understand the need to get Marty out of and away from the entire subject of automobiles?

The polls have him down but I wouldn't count him out right yet. He made a very shrewd move by bringing aboard John Seravalli as his LGBTQ liaison. I wouldn't bet against Marty

All of these wack job groups feel betrayed by Brannan after Team Golden exposed his link to them he had to disavow them. Now Brannan is reduced to asking nut jobs to make up stories about Golden. Ever since Boss Treyger told him to go home and get his shine box he hasn't been the same.

Marty Golden must love that old line from 'Top Gun': 'I feel the need for speed."

Always remember this, he killed 'Goose'; and 'Viper' still thinks he's 'dangerous.'

On every front 'Fight Back Bay Ridge" is winning their turf war against Marty Golden and Golden's crowd of hacks, morons and hangerons.

I doubt Justin has a shine box.

How can you shine your shoes if you cant see them?

Is marty behind? I think that may have a double meaning as to what will be the outcome in November. The Governor just reactivated the speed cameras by executive order.

I’m told the wack jobs groups are in a fierce argument with their leader Brannan over their plans to disrupt the Ragamuffin Day Parade Antifa style.

Ragged muffins make me sick, and there is not a more ragged muffin than the 'events man', Chip 'Where Does All That Money Go?' Cafiero.

If 'FBBR' was serious they'd look into what he's been up to with Marty Golden and the circle of money from street festivals and fairs, 'free music' in the park, and the BIDs and Merchants funding.

Marty is a 'grass eater' from way back; Chip is more carnivorous.

If FBBR disrupts the Ragamuffin Parade the way they’re planning it will be their final act of exposing themselves for all to see what they’re really about.

RESPONSE AND BACKFILL: THE “IT’S STILL THE SAME OLD STORY --- BUT MAYBE THERE’S MORE TO TELL” EDITION

TO: “ANONYMOUS SAID… AT 5:24 PM“

WELCOME ABOARD THE MARTY GOLDEN--EMIL “CHIP” CAFIERO EXPRESS:
FIRST --- WE TALKED ABOUT A LOT OF THIS >>> INCLUDING SOME OF THE CHIP CAFIERO STUFF<<< A LONG TIME AGO --- BUT THEN IT WAS ALL IN THE CONTEXT OF THE “FREE CONCERTS” DURING 2014 BEING PART OF MARTY GOLDEN’S RE-ELECTION CAMPAIGN THAT YEAR;
SECOND --- YOUR LIST OF CHIP CAFIERO PRODUCED “EVENTS” FOR MARTY GOLDEN IS NOT NEARLY COMPLETE; CAFIERO HAS HAD HIS HAND IN THE FOLLOWING “EVENTS”: THE HAUNTED HALLOWEEN WALK; THE EASTER EGG HUNT; CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTINGS; VARIOUS SENIOR FAIRS AND BOAT RIDES, AND OTHER GOLDEN-RELATED EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES FOR A VERY LONG TIME, NOW.....

If you want to do some real research into the Golden-Cafiero thing, you need to see what I’ve said about it already. Back in 2014, I did a very detailed and well-researched piece, especially vis a vis Emil “Chip” Cafiero, and overall it’s certainly worthy another look if you care about starting to look into the Golden-Cafiero “money circle” (See “The "2014 Free Concerts in the Park" Phase of Marty Golden’s Re-election Campaign” by Galewyn Massey, 7/12/14, Brooklyn Independent GOP Fountainhead [http://galewynmassey.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-2014-free-concerts-in-park-phase-of.html]).

There’s a lot more than that needs to be uncovered in the Golden-Cafiero merry-go-round, because Emil “Chip” Cafiero has had his hands in more of Marty Golden’s pies than Sweeney Todd did in Mrs. Lovett’s baked goods.

If Golden would just sit at his computer all day and do nothing like Justin he wouldnt be the subject of such petty attacks.

BACKFILL & A CALL FOR A MUCH-NEEDED UPDATE: THE “DON’T FORGET ABOUT THIS OLD GEM” EDITION

EVEN THOUGH, >>> MARTY GOLDEN’S <<< MUCH-HYPED “FREE CONCERTS” HAVE COST US ALL >>> MILLIONS OF TAXPAYER $$$$$ <<< BY NOW --- NO DOUBT, WITH LOTS OF THAT $$$$$ GOING TO “CHIP” --- HERE’S WHAT NED BURKE FOUND OUT >>> WAY BACK THEN.....

Quite a while ago, Ned Burke wrote this for the “Bklyner.”:
“State Senator Marty Golden has been pouring hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer funds to a nonprofit group he founded, which in turn uses the funds to promote the local pol…. City & State analyzed Golden’s member-item spending – taxpayer funds given to each member of the state legislature to distribute within their communities – and found that the Republican lawmaker has steered at least $770,000 to the Bay Ridge-Bensonhurst Beautification and Preservation Alliance since 2005…. The group used that money to sponsor the ‘State Senator Marty Golden Concert Series,’ as well as to operate a Bay Ridge van service for seniors dubbed the Golden-Harbor Bus Loop…. The amount given to the group may have been well over $1 million, according to City & State, but the State Senate was not required to identify the sponsors of member items before 2006. Records show that in 2003 and 2004, the group received $480,000 – though no names are attached to the funds…. The group is currently run by Patrick Condren and shares its office with Condren’s lobbying firm. Condren has lobbied for legislation that was later sponsored by Golden…. The Alliance also employs part-time Golden staffer Emil ‘Chip’ Cafiero. Cafiero collected $13,000-a-year as Golden’s Community Events Coordinator from 2003 through 2007, while he simultaneously worked as a paid consultant organizing the Alliance’s festivals and parades which were funded by Golden. Cafiero has also received at least $90,000 in Golden-steered taxpayer money through other groups he operated while on Golden’s staff…. Golden founded the Bay Ridge – Bensonhurst Beautification and Preservation Alliance in 1994, while he was owner of the Bay Ridge Manor. He stepped down from the group’s presidency in 1998 after winning a seat in the City Council…. The Bay Ridge Manor is still owned by Golden’s family, and in 2008 made headlines when the Village Voice discovered that the lawmaker was steering campaign and taxpayer funds to the establishment to host fundraisers and constituent service events.” (See “Senator Golden Directs Taxpayer Funds To Group He Founded, by Ned Burke, 1/4/12, The “Bklyner.”/ Western Brooklyn [https://bklyner.com/senator-golden-directs-taxpayer-funds-to-group-he-founded-bensonhurst/]).

Since Bed Burke’s reporting is now more than five and a half years (5 ½ yrs.) old, and the cite/site for the “City & State” article mentioned in Burke’s piece is no longer available, somebody really does need to do an in-depth update on Mr. Burke’s information --- and also maybe tie it into Mr. Golden’s othe money laundering operations and/or how it ties into his 2018 run for re-election to the state senate.....

At 4:50 Justin is a fat turkey who posts on this blog and who does nothing besides post on social media all day. His chief of staff Chris the lurker stalks people all day while his associate Yedin privately fumes at being at Brannan letting them all be publicly humiliated by Team Treyger.

HELLO, SPORTS FANS, PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCORE CARDS --- I'M PRETTY SURE THAT JUSTIN BRANNAN HASN'T BEEN PART OF OUR COMMENTERS LINEUP HERE AT "THE BROOKLYN INDEPENDENT GOP FOUNTAINHEAD" FOR QUITE A WHILE.....


Somebody in the Golden brain trust has decided to try to make it look like the Golden opposition is all coming from Justin B. I'm sure that JB and the BRDs intend to do their thing against Marty this fall.

However, please note that most of the recent brickbats aimed at Marty's head, which you've been seeing on this blog are from anti-Golden Republicans, with very little coming from any Dems; and almost nothing from Brannan for a while.

Anonymous said...

GM at 10:44 stop the nonsense. We know Brannan and Capano are your primary sources and the fat turkey Justin comments here regularly. Ask him what FBBR is planning to do to the Ragamuffin Parade. Also ask him how it was his idea until FBBR got linked back to him.

Anonymous said...

I am a long time listener but a first time commenter. This is what I see and what I know, okay?

a) Justin Brannan doesn't post on the blog. He may have done it in the past but he hasn't done it since _at least_ December 2017. You will have to trust me; I don't know or like Brannan but I do know the local internet.

b) This current crop of sycophants Marty has surrounded himself with are stuck in an echo chamber where not only do they think anyone who criticizes Marty is controlled by Justin and his minions but they have also convinced Marty the same and he's bought into it! This is a dangerous situation and his advisor Michael Tobman is worried that Marty has become completely deluded.

c) You will have to trust me; I know this stuff: nearly every other comment on here comes from John Seravelli, a rookie member of Marty's inner circle of sycophants originally from Florida. Marty hired him off Nicole's mayoral campaign.

d) Happy Labor Day. May the best man win!

Anonymous said...

At 12:06. Yedin is quick to comply with fat Turkey Justin’s orders to write a response to the posting of the obvious which is that Brannan and Capano are main sources for
GM and the fat turkey Justin regularly posts on here and thinks he has sources in the Republican camp besides GM and Capano. Even the Republicans who hate Marty hate Brannan more. Just more proof that Yedin the bitter McCreight the lurker and boring Brannan have nothing better to do on Labor Day than post on a GOP blog.

Marty hiring a newbie from Nicole's trainwreck of a mayoral campaign. Brilliant.

Who cares who these anonymous comments are coming from. This blog and the comments are like a death by a thousand cuts to Marty and his campaign. For Golden's side it's the worst of all worlds, some of the factual stuff sounds pretty bad and some of the other stuff sounds pretty funny.

An old wag's girl friend, part of a couple many of us know well, reads Galewyn Massey and the comments just for laughs, because she knows most of the players well.

RESPONSE: THE "NOT EVEN CLOSE" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 12:47 PM"

JUSTIN BRANNAN AND BOB CAPANO WERE NEVER THE "...MAIN SOURCES FOR GM..." --- THE MAIN SOURCES FOR THIS BLOG HAVE ALWAYS BEEN MATERIAL PUBLISHED ON THE INTERNET, SOCIAL MEDIA, OTHER PUBLISHED MATERIAL, LIKE CITY-WIDE AND LOCAL NEWSPAPERS, AND MY EVER-CHANGING CREW OF BSIs.....

EVEN IF BRANNAN OR CAPANO WERE EVER TO HAVE BEEN NUMBERED AMONG MY BSI CONTRIBUTORS, WHICH I SHALL NEITHER CONFIRM NOR DENY AT THIS TIME, THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A LONG TIME AGO IN A KINGDOM BY THE SEA; AND CERTAINLY THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN TWO AMONG MANY, EVEN THEN


As usual lately, Marty Golden and his band of brigands is clueless and toothless, heavy on the ad hominem (which I often delete, as I have done to the four comments immediately above this one) and they are very light on everything else..... In other words, their bark is worse than their bite; and often, as in this instance, they are barking up the wrong tree.....

Is the source Lanny Davis?

GM give it up already. It's obvious Brannan and Capano are your primary sources as you never picked up on the fact that most of the members of FBBR are total far left nut jobs. You profiled them like some good government group. And for the record Justin and his minions are jealous of Seravalli because he doesn't take any shit from them.

Is Marty Golden a hypocrite or just a cynic?
In the last couple of weeks, State Senator Golden has suddenly discovered how much he hates "symbols of hate". On September 2d Marty Golden figured out that 'swastikas' are obnoxious symbols of murder, hatred and anti-semitism.
This looking around for 'hate crimes', like anti-semitic swastika painting in parks, must be a suddenly newfound hobby for Marty Golden, and one that he discovered only after Michael Tobman of the NY Jewish Press became one of Golden's key advisors.
Funny thing is that neither Tobman nor Golden had any problem with anti-semite Republicans being headliners at a Brooklyn Republican fundraiser in Dyker Heights a few months back in April. They even attacked Democrat Ross Barkan as a political opportunist for voicing objections to it at the time.

Anonymous said...

Politics does make strange bedfellows. Now it looks like Democrat AG candidate Tish James and Republican-Conservative Marty Golden are both being taken to the woodshed for their strong support of disgraced former District Attorney Charles Hynes during his last run for re-election in 2013. James and Golden were a one-two punch for Hynes in 2013, Tish in the Democratic Party Primary and Marty in the general.

8:43 is an astute political junkie. Yes in the democratic primary for AG Tish James is melting down because of her previous support for Hynes. I havent noticed anyone make the connections between Marty & Hynes. Of course the obvious is the DA's asset forfeiture checks to Bay Ridge Manor, a/k/a Manorgate.

maybe that firebrand journalist running will ask Golden if he got any checks from Hynes slush fund

I WON'T TOLERATE ANY FALSE NARRATIVES ABOUT ME..... ESPECIALLY, ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT LIKE THIS: JUSTIN BRANNAN BLOGS HERE AS "GALEWYN MASSEY"; OR THAT JUSTIN BRANNAN IS ONE OF "GALEWYN MASSEY'S MAIN SOURCES"; OR THAT JUSTIN BRANNAN "PLAYED GALEWYN MASSEY" IN ANY WAY WHATSOEVER CONCERNING THE FOLKS IN "FIGHT BACK BAY RIDGE"

THE GOLDENBOTS CAN'T ACCEPT THAT A HARDCORE CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN LIKE GM HAS A BIG THROBBING TUMESCENT DICK AND WANTS TO SHOVE IT UP THE ASS OF AN INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN-CONSERVATIVE STATE SENATOR FROM BROOKLYN --- AND UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, GIVE SAID STATE SENATOR THE COURTESY OF A HAND-AROUND WHILE HE TRIES TO BUGGER THE INCUMBENT STATE SENATOR TO DEATH.....


Those Goldenbots also overlooked the fact that when they first made comparisons between "FBBR" and "ANTIFA" on this blog --- >>> MY <<< response was that "FBBR" needed to employ more ANTIFA style street drama; in other words, as far as I was concerned, "FBBR" needed to be more like ANTIFA, not less.

The way things are right now in Bay Ridge when it comes to Republican politics is that >>> NOTHING <<< is better than what we have now with Marty Golden and his high-speed clown-car full of consultants running the show. And for the uninformed, "NOTHING"/ "0" = "ANARCHY"/ "(A)"; hence "FBBR" = ANTIFA is a rather tame corollary of sorts.....

It's only my normal restraint and staunch Catholic upbringing that keeps me from expressing my true feelings about these things during times like these.....
