HAS THE BROOKLYN GOP BEEN REDUCED TO THIS ???


A ROBO-CALL:   [An unidentified voice]  "....  Vote for your Republican candidates [no names, offices or districts mentioned]...."  ---  then it got ominous  ---  "We are under attack [no details given as to the nature of the "attack"]....  Fight to save your way of life  [no tactics or strategies are suggested]...."  ---  except a repeat of  ---  "Vote for your Republican Candidates [but still no names, etc.]...."  ---  and the sign off  ---  "...  The [Brooklyn or Kings County ] Republican Committee."



I got this call cold at home, so this is from my memory soon afterward.....

Words cannot express;  so I'm just askin'  ---  really ???  

I mean  ---  REALLY ! ! ! ! !

Gail, this came after State Senator Marty Golden's spox gave his paid campaign boss Ian Reilly "a vote of confidence...". That put him at odds with the top of the ticket statewide, GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Marc Molinaro, the top of the ticket locally, Congressman Dan Donovan, and several other top NYS & NYC GOP elected and party officials. So the "under attack" could mean by other parts of the GOP.

Are Golden and Ghorra "going rogue"?

Anonymous said...

No, 5:00 AM, 'enemies' is straight out of the Ian Reilly and 'Proud Boys' playbook. It means Antifa, their Radical Democrat supporters and facilitators and their Weimar Democrat enablers.

Leave Ghorra out of this he doesn’t know what he’s doing and he’s a puppet. He may be a good lawyer but clearly he’s in over his head. Golden campaign a total disaster Gail should do a little inquiring about how the Upper East Side psycho couple have been formally hired by the campaign. Ian, Alexandra, and Robert have all worked on the same miserable failure campaigns together in the past. Makes sense that they would come together for this one too. GM you might also have some fun finding out how in coming to the fast and furious defense of Ian, they threw almost everyone else under the bus.

With Eaton we had an office , volunteers , campaign operations

With Ghorra we have no office, no volunteers, no operations, and a couple of Upper East Side psyhos who are by the way destroying any chance Saperstein has so they will be o for 4 in Brooklyn races in 2 years..and the only reason they are now in bklyn instead of Manhattan is because Andrea Cats booted them...Ghorra should do one good thing and do the same.

Sounds like a very effective GOTV call.

When was the last time a robo call had this impact?

8:11 What Steve Saperstein and the Steeplechase psychos are doing to that young man Joe in the Bay Ridge office is disgusting. He is working his tail off while the rest of them take pictures for insta and update their social media. Ghorra is Jerry's puppet we all know this. So I think it's kind of unfair to keep attacking him, he has to help Liam and do what Jerry tells him or he'll be booted next year. That ridiculous robo call is classic Jerry, they are stuck in the 1980's as if there are enough Republicans left in the county to care that "we are being attacked". Although my favorite idiotic move of the last 24 hours is Tobman responding to press inquiries about the Proud Boys and Marty Golden by saying that Ian Reilly is a "friend". The reporter's next question to him should have been is his salary commensurate with how clueless he is.

Can someone please tell Marty Golden to tell his idiot staffers and hangers on to stop talking about the Proud Boys on social media? What part of this only keeps stoking the fires and keeps the issue alive do they not understand? I know Tobman and Kassar aren’t rocket scientists but they should reign the idiots in. Stop talking about proud boys and how antifa started it. It’s an argument that you even if you win you wind up losing.

6;49 has such wisdom. Keep in mind Marty has never lost but i'm sure you know best.

Keep in mind any Republican who comes close to losing in this district has idiots for campaign staff since it has squeezed together as many Republicans as possible in a seat gerrymandered so overtly and flagrantly that it wouldn’t survive a court challenge. But you guys are doing such a “great” job dealing with an opponent to the left of Obama that for all of our sake I’m relying on you knowing better than I do.

GM that’s your problem. As a Republican I’d like to stay where I am but if Andrew Gounardes wins he’s more liberal than Justin can ever dream of being. New York will become a sanctuary state and go bankrupt much like California is about to do. Time to circle the wagons around Golden and resolve personal grievances after he keeps the seat in Republican hands.

Anonymous said...

Another benefit of Golden losing is that Brooklyn will also be rid of the Upper East Side psychos once and for all, just like Manhattan

Anonymous said...

6:59 is obviously a comment by Alexandra or Robert as they are clearly obsessed with themselves. Golden isn't losing. Him winning will be despite Jerry Kassar shoving the Steeplechase psychos down Golden's throat. They did however cost Golden getting the Reform party line, they cost Saperstein any chance of getting support from Donovan who probably could have helped raise at least another sorely needed $50,000 for Saperstein. Oh and don't worry Alexandra and Robert, we know you're not going anywhere if Golden loses, you'll always find some gullible schnook to sink your tentacles into.

That's your problem, if Golden and his staff had any intention of "resolving personal grievances" they would have done it before the election..they will not do after..if they win, they will just continue to attack anonymously on Twitter and wherever any and all perceived opponents, whether they by Denocrats, Republicans or Reform Party...so why would we rally around him?????

Anonymous said...

6:43 I understand your perspective but I am Republican who wants to grow the Brooklyn GOP not annihilate it as revenge against Golden. To be sure after this election it is high time to fight back against the thuggery of certain people in his office. Even if Golden wins he is weakened even if he wins by 15, this district is drawn as a firewall against any liberal opponent no matter how well funded and articulate. Golden's inner circle has run the worst campaign imaginable. If Golden loses all that means is best case scenario we become the Bronx and control the county party we will never win another office again.

There are some good Republicans like Malliotakis out there but they have been unwilling to stand up to Golden shenanigans and fall in line with Golden and Kassar..if your saying they may be willing to sing a different tune soon, them maybe u have a point

Anonymous said...

8:46 If Golden wins he's up for re-election in another two years not exactly a lot of time. The days when he had absolute power are gone no matter what happens in this election. Golden can be called a lot of things but he's survived this long because he has strong political instincts and savvy. If the idiots around him try to resort to the usual payback it only makes sure they lose their jobs after the next election and they would be smart to make as few enemies as possible. And if you want to talk wrath forget it if Gounardes and his team win, they make Justin look non partisan and benevolent.

Does anybody remember that the next day response by the Golden campaign staff to Fight Back Bay Ridge after FBBR was politicking at the first 'Stroll on Third' was to compare them to ANTIFA and to threaten violence at the second stroll if they showed up to do it again.

Since we now have him on the record with the 'Proud Boys' fiasco at the Met Republican Club, it seems safe to say that violence or threats of violence seems to be part of the Ian Reilly touch.

Marty Golden has brought that stink and stain to Bay Ridge; and he refuses to remove it.

RESPONSE: THE "AND NOW, REDUCED TO THIS....." EDITION

TO ALL OF THE COMMENTERS ABOVE WHO STUMBLED ONTO THIS TRUTH --- ANY MAIN POST ON THIS BLOG THAT HAS AS ITS TITLE --- "HAS THE BROOKLYN GOP BEEN REDUCED TO THIS ???" --- MUST GET AROUND TO A DISCUSSION OF THE ISSUE OF >>> LIAM MC CABE <<<

NONE OF WHAT FOLLOWS IS INTENDED TO TALK ABOUT THE REAL LIAM AS A PERSON --- I WOULD BE BOTH BUMPTIOUS AND PRESUMPTUOUS TO DO SO, SINCE I DON'T KNOW VERY MANY OF THE FACTS OF LIAM'S LIFE AND I AM NOT CLOSE TO HIM IN ANY SOCIAL CONTEXT

HOWEVER, AT LEAST ON THIS BLOG, "LIAM MC CABE" IS A "REGULAR" AMONG OUR DRAMATIS PERSONAE --- BUT --- HE IS EVEN MORE THAN SUCH A PERSONA, HE IS AN AVATAR

AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME --- "LIAM MC CABE" REPRESENTS BOTH THE HOPE AND THE FOLLY OF THE BROOKLYN REPUBLICAN PARTY GOING FORWARD


Forget the BS about Liam's "DEMONS"..... Winston Churchill had plenty of demons, and failures, and follies --- including a very problematic dead father..... However, Winnie had the will to power, along with fortitude, resilience and eventually even the gods on his side.

Now, now, now, don't say it, Captain Obvious --- "LIAM IS NO CHURCHILL"..... I KNOW THAT, because I knew Churchill, Churchill was a friend of mine..... And certainly, Liam is no Churchill.....

But nothing stops Liam from doing this: take some pages from Churchill's book(s) and be Churchillian --- offer to lead the Brooklyn GOP away from the likes of Mike Long, Jerry Kassar and other of his recent NYSCP "friends" and mentors..... Also away from Marty Golden and the whole Golden cabal.inside the GOP. YES, LIAM, BITE THE HAND THAT FED YUH..... Churchill was a master at that..... Liam needs to offer and promise the Brooklyn Republicans that are left only this: "...Blood, sweat, toil and tears..." to rebuild the party and lead it into a future with a little hope and some follies too, but always something to look forward to.

The Upper East Siders are Mccabes creation (and problem) and they are now all over the GOP in SI and Bk and Manhattan. (Castorina, Grimm, Malliotakis, Golden, Saperstein, Levin Ashermen, ect) Add Queens if you count their link to Ulrich and Holden.

If the GOP goes down in Brooklyn you can blame mccabe but if they all incumbents win win and the pyschos even take a solid dem seat (46th AD) and elect Saperstein then they will be the new kings. King Psycho and the Upper East Siders will be the new leaders of the party like it or not.

He has never shown the ability to really go the distance. Just take a look at the Bay Ridge Democrats. We all hate them but their organiation made a name for themselves through years of hard work and because they took the risks. They don't even have a clubhouse. They meet in the back of a diner but they endorsed Ken Thompson against Joe Hynes and they endorsed DiBlasio when he was in last place. They supported Scott "Sufferin' succotash!" Stringer when he was fighting for his life against Eliot Laurence Spitzer. So now JB is sittin' pretty as the Big Boss because his club did it the old fashioned way... they earned it!

Gail, Liam is not the guy to build the Brooklyn GOP and he shouldn't be boosted for that role on your blog.
Don't ignore the elephant in the room, Liam McCabe is a 'Fredo' with a sobriety problem; 'and his crew' are at best, political lightweights.
McCabe and his gang are will o the wisps in all things that matter in intra-party and general elective politics: they don't know the players or the bigger political landscape locally and city wide, even when it comes to their own party, to the extent that they might have one; they don't know the streets in all the neighborhoods where they need to make inroads; and they don't know mail, either how to do it well or how it really is supposed to work.
Since winning is nothing they've ever been instrumental in, for anybody ever, they don't know what winning looks like, or more important feels like.
Most important, Liam and his crew are not humble, and they don't know how to listen.

Let's not forget NYC's top Republicam, Dan Donovan wants nothing to do with Liam after he supported Grimm, and got crushed. Pretty hard to build a Republican club when your top elected official hates you.

No one still has answered what happened to McCabes South Bklyn Conservative Club? Obviously the answer is it went by the wayside because like everything else with Liam it was a cheap political stunt--- just like promising private street residents a meeting with the Mayor after he brought garbage to Gracie Mansion, or using his taxi to drive residents to subway stations, his often repeated railroad tracks story about his dad, ...More and more people know what Liam or Will McCabe is all about and it ain't pretty.

I received an email from a "Republican leader " urging Republicans and district leaders to boycott Liams new Rep club meeting citing his support and running the Brooklyn campaign of Michael Grimm against respected incumbent GOP Congressman Dan Donovan. It also pointed to his smear campaign against Quaglione (although he tries to be sneaky about it, many saw his tactics), and of course it notes McCabes personal "troubles" as well as the last club he started as a PR stunt was the Brooklyn South Conservatives , which is now defunct..the email urged support for our local GOP candidates by working directly with the campaigns , not by being part of another stunt to keep McCabe relevant and someone who can't lead republicans with his history and someone who NYC's top Republican (Donovan) can't stand...
Now many others are sending out their own emails to this effect...if you feel the same, join us and contact your local Republican friends and tell them to stay away from McCabe and his new venture , or stunt

Theasy time Republicans won the Brooklyn portion of the Staten Island Congressional District in recent memory is when mccabe ran the campaign here. People get over "feelings" quickly when it's time to rally and Donovan,Golden and the others seem happy to have his help.

Mccabe lost the Brooklyn portion of the district big time with Grimm against Donovan.

Anonymous said...

Grimm never won the Brooklyn part of the district. When Donovan took Office Liam was quickly relegated because it was obvious he was putting his own political ambitions ahead of Donovan's priorities. Liam and the Upper East Side psychos have gotten trounced in every campaign they've played a meaningful role. Let's see, Storobin's campaigns in 2012 and 2013, all of the Joe Concannon campaigns, the time they hosed poor Rebecca Harary, unsuspecting David Garland, and of course the shit show humiliation of the Grimm primary. Oh yea and let's not forget Lester Chang! Without Jerry Kassar they wouldn't be allowed within a mile of a campaign.

Donovan won Brooklyn with Liam. It's true. Why would Dan care if he is helping again for the good of the party. These electeds will NOT turn his team down. No one else has done a lick! As they say "You don't look a gift horse in the mouth" https://observer.com/2017/03/new-york-citys-only-republican-congressman-looks-to-flex-his-political-muscles-at-home/

Sounds like some people (Justin Brannan) want Liam not to help Dan Donovan and Marty Golden. Nobody would like it more that then "Sitting Pretty" Councilman to have the division in the opposition party so Andrew Gounardes and Max Rose can win.. You are not fooling anyone with your fake news. Get you own blog!

The Dems want Liam to help bklyn rep candidates..what did Donovan beat Liams candidate Grimm by in the primary in Bklyn- 80%-20%...

Anonymous said...

Liam is helping Marty and Donovan??? They’ve told some whoppers but this is one of their juiciest. Let’s get things cleared up. Liam gluing himself next to Golden during the Third Avenue Festival does not mean support. The Steeplechase psychos have placed all bets on the Sapersteins race hoping they can finally take credit for what should be an easy win. They can’t get volunteers for that campaign either so they have to bring their friends from Manhattan whenever they can. Meanwhile they treat that kid Joey like shit because they’re afraid he might take a job “away” from the if Steve wins. Eff outta here

Liam stands next to Marty at 3rd ave festival for some photos...typical Liam, a dog and pony show...

Anonymous said...

Of course all Republican elected officials stand together for elections and Of course will accept any help from anyone (Donovan using Liam for any help) but that doesn't mean will give them time of day after election day..

Anonymous said...

What is campaigning at a festival if not a dog and pony show. Eff outta here!

Anonymous said...

Liam doesn’t even have volunteers for Saperstein and he’s not helping anybody else. His contribution has been going to the campaign office and barking orders at that kid Joe. That’s why we have the desperate stunt of the Verrazzano Club. Ghorra worried that he’s done hoping to at least give leadership post to Liam. District leaders shouldn’t fall for it, they already have a list of leaders they’re planning on knocking off.

Anonymous said...

The only person I have seen helping Saperstein, Marty and Donovan has been Liam and the East Side Proud Boys and Girls. Where are all the volunteers for the ticket? Where is Quagmire? Where is the Republican Party? The District Leaders? The Conservatives? Do they expect a loss? At least McCabe will go down with the ship. Where is the backbone?

McCabe runs rings around Quaglione..Q sticks to getting Marty's coffee

Anonymous said...

9:15 the real volunteers who are loyal to Marty, Q, and Danny don't hang around the office all day updating their insta like the upper east side psychos. Reason Marty can't get volunteers like he used to is because nobody can stand them but since Steve is sharing office space with Marty they have an excuse to show up. Marty's campaign was warned before he hired them that no one wanted to work with them but Jerry got his way in the end.

Anonymous said...

If Marty wins , I hope some electeds and their staffs finally get the balls to stand up to Golden and Kassar, but I doubt it. Will be having the same debates and grudges..

Lame excuse @ 09:15

Well at least 915am admits McCabe will lose yet again..

Good question. Where the hell is Quagmire? The Senator practically cut off is right arm to help that kid. Q has abandoned the old man. Marty was at every festival with him.

Anonymous said...

9:33 is right. No one can stand the Steeplechase psychos so since Steve has them working out of Marty’s office people steer clear of the place. Creepy vibe when they’re there.

The psychos have their cameras and recorders running all the time...weirdos

Anonymous said...

What is Saperstein thinking letting those weirdos around his campaign??

Anonymous said...

9:51 Saperstein needs them the one who gets hurt is Marty. Marty was warned by several people on his staff who were with him for years. The only person who wanted them is Jerry. As usual let Marty pay for Jerry’s actions.

Anonymous said...

Classic case of cons fooling to each other. Jerry told would hook them up with Marty in exchange for the Bob Capano smear and they let Jerry believe that they are close to the Cats family. Meanwhile almost nobody wants to set foot in the campaign office when they're there.

Anonymous said...

Obviously p ychos not close to Cats as he hasn't lifted a finger to help Golden ..
Obviously cats stands with capano

It was said last year and should be said again, Liam should Put politics aside and get real help...each time he has a loss there is a binge...Mike Long himself told several about his fiasco after he lost his primary last year ...there are only so many times u can rope people in with the promise u changed..

Anonymous said...

Liam’s problem is not addiction. It’s the company he keeps and the advice he takes. His nice guy image has been blown to pieces by his partnership with the Upper East Side psychos and the girlfriend making a new enemy every day.

The Steeplechase psychos have made Golden’s campaign office into a deserted space. Jerry has hired a bunch of high priced buffoons to run the race and managed to get Golden’s name mixed up in the proud boys drama. They can make fun of Bob all they want it’s misplaced anger and jealousy that while Bob hangs out with influencers, the Steeplechase psychos have to hang on to Jerry’s every word and spend countless hours sucking up to him. No wonder they’re so angry.

Where was Capano at tonight's big event for his candidate Saperstein? All the electeds, Fran and Ted were there but no Bob? What gives

Anonymous said...

I’m sure Bob had better things to do then have to hang out with the fifteen of the usual people who showed up tonight.

Did you see the fundraiser today in Coney on FB? I heard there were 30 people there, and if you take out the candidates, their staff, the pathetic BOE employees, Mr. "Members Only", and a few random lunatics, there was only one other person there-and that was Ghorra? Question, how is this called a fundraiser when you know all of the above werent paying a dime.

Capano is using his time more wisely- with a winner, Andrew Gounardes

Wow..just saw photos of entire crowd at Saperstein Fundraiser in Coney Island yesterday..30 people tops..that includes the 27 campaign staffers, party hacks...did anyone pay?
How can Saperstein not see how embarrassing .. sad...guess on election day after he loses worse than last year he will see the light, but doubt it

Anonymous said...

Event was a success. Most of the comments are from Bob whose jealous that Steeplechase is in charge and Steve won’t return his calls. Bob is also jealous because Alexandra and Robert are close with Nicole Malliotakis and they all laugh their heads off looking at pictures of Bob with his beverage on the subway.

Anonymous said...

Bob should start acting like the pit bull that he is and take some shots at Frontus for Steve the way he attacks Golden for Andrew. Otherwise his support for Andrew will be viewed as just bitter spite. Look at how successful Kassar was at going after Grimm for his guy Donovan or how Golden fought for Quaglione. Capano only fights for Capano. If Andrew loses his race in the Senate and Saperstein wins his in the Assembly Capano will have no friends in Govt in Bk if he continues to abandon Saperstein.

When Saperstein wins, what will Obrien and Capano say?? They are being schooled on running a winning campaign

Anonymous said...

Considering Frontus is unknown outside Coney Island and doesn’t have two nickels this rub together in her campaign account, this should be a very easy win. What’s keeping it competitive is the shit show of a team assembled by Saperstein.

Anonymous said...

Frontus wins 2 to 1.

No competition here. The usual 36% for Sap
