Sliwa throws his beret into the ring --- by saying he really doesn't want the job for himself or any of the other candidates


Curtis Sliwa hopes to be seen as the "man of the people" as he talked about entering the race for public advocate in February’s special election to replace NYS Attorney General-elect Letitia James

NYC's first "Guardian Angel" openly states that his run in this Special Election for for Public Advocate is motivated by Republican candidate and City Council member for Southwest Queens Eric Ulrich's announcement of his candidacy for the same office in the same special election

  

Sliwa says that Ulrich is unfit to run for anything as a Republican endorsed candidate, because the Queens Councilman has shown terrible judgment by endorsing a "baffoon" like Bo Dietl, over Brooklyn & Staten Island Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis for the Republican nomination in last year’s mayoral election


Curtis Sliwa is described by the "Kings County Politics" blog as   ---  "....  The bold, tough-talking founder and face of the civilian vigilante group the Guardian Angels, radio personality, and perennial Reform Party candidate...".  In an exclusive interview that he gave to KCP,  the feature's lead was a discussion of Sliwa's strongly asserted position to eliminate the office for which he is likely to be running, with or without GOP support, in February  (See "Curtis Sliwa Could Be Wild Card In Public Advocate Race"  by Michael Rock,  12/13/18,  Kings County Politics  [www.kingscountypolitics.com/curtis-sliwa-could-be-wild-card-in-public-advocate-race/]).
According to KCP,  Sliwa noted that with the exception of  one past  NYC Public Advocate,  since the post was established in 1994, every one of them had used the position as a springboard to campaign for higher office using the taxpayers’ dime.  Sliwa then specifically mentioned Mayor Bill De Blasio,  Mark Green, and of course most recently, Letiticia James.
Curtis Sliwa promises to be a threat to the very office for which he will be running
If I were to run for Public Advocate…I would take the oath of office if I won, [and then I would] fire myself, fire everyone else, and padlock the office....  You do not need a public advocate, because all they’re advocating for is themselves.”
BUT SLIWA ALSO HAS A "PLAN B"
Mr. Sliwa also made it clear that if the people voted to maintain the public advocate office in a referendum that he is proposing if elected, he would respect the will of the people.  In that case, he said he would use his position to “be Bill De Blasio’s worst nightmare”  ---   Sliwa then used the KCP article to highlight his own July 2017 arrest at Gracie Mansion while attempting to serve the mayor court papers.
The first Guardian Angel then proceeded to explain that his top priority would be the subway system. “I was birthed in the subways. For 40 years, I have been patrolling the subways with the Guardian Angels....  [a]nd that’s something the mayor disdains. Riding the subway. He’ll do it for a photo-op, but he refuses to ride the subway [for real].”  Staying on the subject of subways and other transit modalities,  Sliwa then accused Governor Andrew Cuomo of being too aloof on too many matters directly effecting NYC's residents  ---  with the decaying MTA at the top of the list.


Sliwa's [R]ock-Block Strategy

He also explained to interviewer Michael Rock that he was motivated to run by the announcement of Republican candidate and City Councilmember Eric Ulrich,  sort of as a blocking maneuver.  Sliwa indicated that he opposes Ulrich for endorsing former cop Bo Dietl, whom he referred to as a “buffoon,” over Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis for the Republican nomination in last year’s mayoral election; and Sliwa also spoke out about how Ulrich voted to approve  the left-wing radical former City Council Speaker and Democratic P.A. candidate Melissa Mark-Viverito  to be the Speaker of the NYC Council as part of a deal brokered by Mayor De Blasio.

Sliwa offers forgiveness to Ulrich if he REPENTS

However, Sliwa acknowledged that Ulrich is the only true Republican in the race and that Ulrich could be redeemed for his past mistakes if he apologized.  He then compared what Ulrich needed to go through as "the Stations of the Cross"  (possibly a reference to a ritualist practice in the Roman Catholic faith sometimes done as a penance).

Public Advocate Candidate (and CIty Council Speaker) MM-V needs to focus on New York City's and real New Yorker's needs 

As to Council Speaker Mark-Viverito, Sliwa told KCP that he respected her intelligence, passion, and dedication to her goals.   On the other hand, Sliwa said that he felt she was out of touch with the needs of real New Yorkers.  “I’ve always thought that Melissa Mark-Viverito’s heart was always in Puerto Rico. She seems to be much more attached to [that] island’s needs....   Why [does she] want to run for public advocate here?  [She]should run for Mayor San Jaun or Ponce,  or] Governor of Puerto Rico…   [The New York City Public Advocate  should] not be thinking about Puerto Rico or the Dominican Republic or anywhere else...."  
By stark contrast Curtis Sliwa emphasised  ---  "We’re thinking of the five boroughs of the City of New York.”

I never thought Sliwa was a rocket scientist, but openly stating that he's running to screw Ulrich is what someone dumber than a bag of rocks would do.

What was Ulrichs point in endorsing a joke like little Bo Dietl?

Ulrich endorsed Dietl to "screw" Malliotakis.

Ulrich and Dietl are a couple of cartoon characters.

But the public advocate is a job is a joke so maybe Ulrich is the right guy.

Nobody cares what Malliotakis thinks. She's controlled by others. Throw a couple of consulting gigs to her advisers and she'll be cutting commercials supporting Ulrich.

Not that I even like her, but who controls Malliotakis?

Don't you guys get tired spinning about how Kassar is at the root of everything? Or is Nicole part of Queen Elizabeth's international drug ring? Or is she a Rosacrucian?

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 12:41 PM" AND ALL OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES, PRO & CON

CURTIS SLIWA GOT A VERY BIG GET..... AND IT HAPPENED AT THE HOME OF FORMER GOP CONGRESSMAN AND GOP COUNTY LEADER AND STATEWIDE GOP PLAYER BOB TURNER IN BREEZY POINT, QUEENS, NYC & NYS


Here's the scoop, and I'm here to tell yuhs, it's straight from the horse's mouth:

Congressman and former Queens GOP Chair, Bob Turner, has endorsed Curtis Sliwa for New York City Public Advocate. Like Turner, Sliwa is a media guy, being a very popular talk radio host.

Turner and Sliwa want you to know that the endorsement is for the special election expected to take place in early 2019 to fill the term of the current Public Advocate and NYS Attorney General-elect, Letitia James.

Turner called on all New York City Republicans to back Sliwa --- and absolutely NOT Queens Councilman Eric Ulrich.

Turner and Sliwa jointly state that Eric Ulrich "... has cynically attempted to portray himself as the only GOP and moderate alternative to the growing field of Democrats in the race...."

It is fair to say that Bob Turner’s support of Curtis Sliwa is an indication that Sliwa’s appeal to hardworking and over-taxed outer-borough residents who are the backbone of the Republican Party is something that distinguishes him from everybody else in the race, or likely to enter the race.

Turner said that Curtis Sliwa has been an unpaid public advocate all of his adult life; and that for almost four decades Sliwa’s fought to make our subways and streets safe.

Turner then noted that Curtis Sliwa has never hesitated to speak-out against the far left lunacy of Mayor de Blasio's administration. And he concluded by saying, "No one can doubt that Curtis Sliwa would be the most effective person to hold Mayor de Blasio accountable as Public Advocate. He is the clear choice for Republicans and Independents to bring some sanity to City Hall and prevent a complete domination by Democrats in New York.”

As part of the whole endorsement presentation, Sliwa called Eric Ulrich a “Bill de Blasio Republican”; and he pointed out that many local Republicans all over the city have questioned how Ulrich could be an effective check on Mayor de Blasio, or during the Public Advocate campaign even attack one of the leading Democrat candidates Melissa Mark-Viverito. [Everybody needs to know that in 2013, Eric Ulrich famously broke a public PLEDGE to his fellow GOP City Councilmembers, which was to vote AGAINST Viverito for Council Speaker. After making a cynical backroom deal with de Blasio and the Progressive Caucus, Ulrich voted for Viverito to be Council Speaker; and at the time, he said that Melissa Mark-Viverito was a “... very fair-minded person...." Ulrich then added this INSULT TO HIS INJURY: "I think that a lot of people would try to make her out to be the bogeywoman here, to scare people or to convince them not to vote for her.” [Make no mistake, by saying that he intentionally was throwing his Republican colleagues under the bus.]

Ulrich’s complete lack of character, judgment and fidelity to Republican principles was again on full public display in 2017 when he supported Bo Dietl instead of the Grand Old Party’s standard bearer for Mayor, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis. [That move was seen many political observers as simply paying-back NYC Democrats and aiding in the re-election of Mayor de Blasio.

Gail, if giving the KCP's Michael Rock interview was part of Sliwa's [Rock] Block Strategy against Ulrich, then this Turner endorsement is part of his and Bob Capano's Brooklyn-Queens [Shock] Block of Ulrich and whatever allies he has in Brooklyn or Queens.

With his history of backing a libtard like MM-V and also trying to pander to his Howard Beach crowd by helping to frame some routine black kid in a hoodie for murder, and backing a wacky ex-NYPD detective for mayor over the mainstream GOP candidate, Ulrich stands a chance of getting no votes in any special election for Public Advocate.

Free advice for Liam, Bob, and Ted. Liam we get it, this is a good opportunity for you to make some money and advance politically. Of course you are going to take it, just don't try strong arm tactics, totally not your strong suit and in the end Ulrich won't win and your reputation will have suffered. Bob, Eric is going to lose, keep doing what you're doing. Ted if you want to have any chance of staying leader in the next reorg, stay out of this race completely. Most people think you were helping Grimm during the primary and even after Grimm lost you installed his team on various campaigns in Brooklyn.

Anonymous said...

If Ray Denaro (who says he doesn't blog anonymously) hasn't figured out things about Ghorra and McCabe yet, he must be as dumb as dirt.
In his short political career, Mr. Denaro has demonstrated his penchant for making bad decisions and unfortunate alliances, and on top of that expressing some very uninformed opinions.
Unless he wants to remain a tyro his whole life, he needs to get a dose of maturity very quickly.
Naked political ambition must be tempered by insight, intelligence and wisdom born of experience, into which accounts Mr. Ray Denaro has not apparently yet made any meaningful deposits.

Phyllis is gone. Let’s face the facts- the Republican district leaders are a bunch of do nothings who should just retire. Look around the room at a meeting- it’s pathetic - like an old age home. No offense but it’s time to move forward. The reason why democrats are so strong they actually recruit youth and resonate. Ghorra biggest fail was keeping the Eaton leftovers. We saw their apathy during the Quaglione race and we saw it last year during Donovan, Golden Saperstein. Like it or not, I hear the wheels are already in motion . Lead by Denaro , Legend, Saperstein, Quaglione to give all district leaders the challenge/ change over. Bye bye.

Let’s play a game. For months everyone was going after Ghorra supporting Grimm. Turns out he was right. Donovan was a terrible congressman who never step foot in Brooklyn. He didn’t even bother to knock on a door or campaign. He left BROOKLYN to dry. He lost by 10,000 votes. Grimm has some balls and would’ve campaigned. He would have won the election!!!!! Instead we’ll here we are. A joke!

Let’s get a couple of things straight here. Michael Grimm got 800 votes in Brooklyn in the Republican Primary. He campaigned hard in Brooklyn and Ghorra was supporting him behind the scenes. Liam and the the psychos got their asses handed to them by Orlando and team. Grimm always lost Brooklyn big time. The only thing they managed to do was make Donovan spend all his money and not be able to compete in the general. And then Donovan got linked to the proud boy drama and the shit show campaign run by Golden team. A lot more people voted in the Senate race than the congressional race in Brooklyn but you don’t hear about that. If I were Phyllis or any of the district leaders I would dare Liam or Ghorra to try to take me out, unless selfies count as signatures and proxies that crew is SOL.

10:02 is probably right but also why so many think she's spineless. 2013 they literally took her name off the door because she endorsed Cats instead of Lhota. 2017 Literally banned her from speaking to some of her friends as a condition of him supporting her for Mayor instead of Faulkner. But she falls in line each time. Wouldn't be surprised if she winds up endorsing Eric.

Now the Turner endorsement of Sliwa is a bitch slap if Ulrich! Ulrich C ant hold the GOP together in his own borough, how can he do it city wide or in Bklyn??

Anonymous said...

There is no GOP to hold together in Brooklyn. Even reaching out to the few Republican remaining Republican 'leaders' is a chore that Ghorra can't get done.

Liam has made a hash out of the Ulrich roll-out in Brooklyn. How has it helped Ulrich at all? Ulrich is like Humpty-Dumpty, except nothing good rhymes with 'Eric Ulrich.'
ON the other hand, Sliwa gives everybody fever.

Sliwa's campaign is more about negative energy than anything else; and at this moment negativity has all of the momentum when it comes to the Brooklyn GOP. Sliwa doesn't need to do much to sink what's left of the GOP crowd that he's against in Brooklyn.

Liam has no traction at all. Any effort for Ulrich takes away from what he needs to do to get any grip onto the GOP in 2019. Watch what happens when Liam's possible supporters see that Ulrich is a net liability for them and is like Grimm all over again, complete with Bob Morgan and Alexandra the not so great.

Anonymous said...

Ulrich humiliated Bob Turner in 2017 when he let him go to the Reorg Dinner thinking that he didn’t even have an opponent and then his people showed up with over a hundred proxies to install Ulrich’s puppet. Bob Turner is a good man who had finally started to unify the party and then the whole party was upended by a greedy power hungry elected.

YOU MIGHT BE ONTO SOMETHING, BUT I THINK THAT YOUR CONCLUSION THAT "MALLIOTAKIS WINS NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO...." PUSHES THE ENVELOPE A LITTLE BIT

In any case, I think that Liam has made a strategic blunder with his Erci Ulrich gambit. There are so many more ways that this all goes "tits up" for Liam than his getting anything worthwhile out of it. Or, to put it another way, it was a ballsy move, but one that put his own balls on the line.

Meanwhile, it gave Capano, Eaton, Sliwa and "The Big Cat" an opportunity to counterpunch their way right back into a political race with a Brooklyn component, with very little real at stake; and all of it is a mere prelude to next year's Brooklyn GOP organizational battle, which means a lot more to "The Big Cat" than people think.

RESPONSE: THE "WE DON'T NEED NO STINKIN' SLIWA TO 'WEIGH[ ] IN' ON THE CHANEL LEWIS RE-TRIAL" EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 10:24 PM"

THIS BLOG HAS 'WEIGHED IN' ALREADY ON HOW THE "ROCK SOLID" DNA EVIDENCE AGAINST CHANEL LEWIS "LEAKS LIKE A SIEVE" ---- HOWEVER, THIS INFORMATION ABOUT THE DNA IN THE VETRANO-LEWIS CASE DOES BEAR REPEATING


Let's start with a general statement about DNA Evidence in criminal cases, which is true about what's there related to Chanel Lewis:
From prosecuting the wrong person for a crime to giving misleading information to jurors during a trial of that wrong person, the consequences of errors in DNA testing can be severe and long-lasting.
A combination of human error, computer problems, incorrect coding and faulty assumptions can all add up to significant problems with the DNA testing, analysis and profiling in a case like the one brought against Chanel Lewis.

In the case of Karina Vetrano and Chanel Lewis, much was made of the "fingernail DNA" retrieved from Ms. Vetrano, whose "profile" included a probable correlation to the "profile" of Mr. Lewis, which those in favor of finding Mr. Lewis guilty of Ms. Vetrano's murder characterize as only having a one-in-six trillion chance of being wrong. Unfortunately, the prosecution has no provable explanation as to how Mr. Lewis's DNA came to be under Ms. Vetrano's fingernails. The trial statements by the prosecutor, which clearly are not evidentiary and can prove nothing, said that Karina Vetrano scratched her murderer as she fought for her life; in addition an NYPD characteristics profile of the perpetrator, which was put out long before the arrest of Mr. Lewis specifically stated that the murderer would have been covered in scratches, abrasions and bruises in the days following the murder of Ms. Vetrano. There is strong documentary evidence that Mr. Lewis >>> had no scratches <<< and was not "covered" by any other injuries whatsoever on the day after the murder. No scratches at all, so where did the "fingernail DNA" come from ?????

Interestingly, the so-called handprint DNA of Chanel Lewis, which was found on Karina Vetrano's back, corresponds almost exactly to the place on her body where her father, Phil Vetrano, testified he had pressed against her when he first found her body face down in the weeds on the night of her murder.
