The Best of Atlas: Our Favorite Posts of 2010 – Midas Mulligan

January 1, 2011

As we all pause to rest and recollect on the past year, your fellow Atlas writers would like to share with you our favorite posts of 2010.

Having been the first to offer my selection last year when we started choosing our “Best of Atlas” stories, John Galt asked me to once again be the first to deliver my favorite story of the year in a series that will include all of our contributors’ choices. We will also be including a poll for you to vote on your favorite story of 2010 shortly.

***

My choice for the Best of Atlas is, I believe, one of the most important events in our blog’s history. Of all the things that amazed me this year, our discussions and influences (however significant or insignificant) regarding the 13th Congressional race led to some of the most read stories we’ve ever featured.

However, no story compares with my colleague John Galt’s launch of our now infamous Atlas Poll before the 13th Congressional GOP primary asking readers to decide “who would be the most likely victor”: Mike Grimm or Michael Allegretti.

Mr. Grimm went on to win that poll, the primary and eventually the general election.

I recall Mr. Grimm’s campaign posting a link to this website on his Facebook page even asking average Joes to vote, and come they did. Tens of thousands visited Atlas to read our election coverage, and we were glad to join the ranks of other worthy blogs covering that important race.

I commend John Galt for the idea of the poll, which was very wise and fulfilled a need for an outlet online for GOPers seeking to express their opinion on the race.

For the results of the poll, click here.

This whole event, unprecedented in online politics in Brooklyn, certainly merits a place among the “Best of Atlas.”

        Hi Luke,

        What did Craig ever do to you? This blog is pretty disgraceful. Luke Vander Linden should be ashamed of himself for all of this.

        Why are you proud to be destroying the Republican Party if you are Reublicans?

        The answer is that you are Democrats.

        Kiss, Kiss…

        Besides, even if he is an author, they haven’t published anything defamatory, from what I can see. They just disagree politically with Eaton and Co.

    Is it Luke or Britta for this post today?

    The answer is both as the husband and wife teamed up for this one, since there snowed in still in Katonah miles and miles away from Brooklyn.

    You know the same place they told to drop dead, after Britta’s patronage job dried up.

    I guess if they couldn’t make themselves useful here in Brooklyn, they figured why not take it to the blogs where they wouldn’t have to face Real Republicans.

    Well too bad there pals are going to have to instead, and I am looking forward to that.

    January 1, 2011 11:06 pm

    Just a thought, is Luke going to twitter, Jonathan to come on and post a few comments, or is he going to tell Britta to come downstairs and post as Lora?

    Ask Roy, nah he’s out like a light, he will be on around 3 AM though..

    Better yet, wake up McCall he’s angry, pathetic, and let him go on his usual anti-catholic rant, maybe he will attack the ushers next at church.

    Luke and Britta are ego-maniacs, when they were here in Brooklyn, they wanted every one here to roll out the red carpet, and kiss there rings.

    Only problem was the feeling wasn’t mutual, they came from somewhere miles away, and had nothing to show for what they thought they were.

    They also didn’t help themselves by acting like blowhards, and were condensing in every aspect, no wonder they get along so well with Jonathan and his ilk.

    That’s why they moved, they didn’t get there ego boosts, so they told us all to drop dead.

    We are all better off, it’s too bad they can’t witness first hand the end of there arrogant, fake republican pals.

He and his wife were two of the meanest faces in GOP politics. I’d rather have anybody but those two phonies, especially Britta, isn’t she unemployed anyways.

        Nothing that is inaccurate has been posted on this blog regarding charities, politicians, etc. We have always indicated which statements are rumors and which are based on solid sources or open facts.

        All interested parties have had an opportunity to email us regarding any inaccuracies. They have not. Those that have emailed us in the past have been responded to promptly and their concerns have been addressed (most recently with The Brooklyn Paper).

        Rather than making frantic threats, perhaps the Bay Ridge GOP might turn its sights toward reforming itself. That would actually be productive for once.

        Slander per se would include impuning a woman’s chastity or saying that someone had a loathsome disease.

        Untrue statements that might have hurt careers, businesses and charities, and the like is in the realm of slander per quod, requiring proof of the false statements, actual damages and causality as part of the proof of a cause of action.

      January 2, 2011 1:20 am

      Based upon the context and content of the comment by “MM Boarder Watcher LLP” one might take the new mention of the earlier “MM Boarder Watcher” to have been intended as an homage or other honorific. That would be too prideful by half. Instead, inasmuch as one has occasionally mimicked the styles of other commentators here on ASIB – strictly to confuse the opposition – turnabout is fair play. Like one has said above “It’s nice to be remembered”; and that goes in almost any context.

      Nonetheless, since somebody is “getting all pee-peed-up” [POTUSBHO] about lawsuits, one does want to keep the record straight.

    “The Big Lie” — Have Eaton And His Bloviators Admitted To What Their Game Has Been All Along…. *** Posted on ASIB on January 1, 2011 at 4:22 pm *** On January 1, 2011 “The Jig is Up Atlas” contained, the following statement in the commentary thread to the December 31, 2010 posting, “2010: A Year in Pictures” by “The Jig is Up Atlas”: “Jig Counsellor said…[ykw]is threatening this blog on [the first Existential Threat's] blog (Atlas). *** Listen [], it would be great to play the libel/slander game. I am sure that even though this blog [TJIUA] claims that they don’t track IP addresses, it would not be impossible to obtain the records of how many times you have ‘blogged’…” *** One strongly suspects that this hate blogger (possibly Craig Eaton, himself) has let the cat out of the bag on perhaps TJIUA’s biggest “Big Lie” — their claim that “… we do not look at or store IP addresses.”

    _____________________________

    This was TJIUA’s very first false claim to “legitimacy”:

    “’The Jig is Up Atlas’ *** The reason for the creation of this blog is to fill a void that has been created by atlasshrugsinbrooklyn.wordpress.com. The people that run that site take cheap shots at republicans that run the Kings County GOP as well as republican candidates that seek public office. They do this anonymously and stifle debate by simply “tracking”, blocking, and then attacking their enemies by storing their IP addresses. *** Atlas incessantly calls for investigations and resignations. We shall do the same. However, we will NEVER look at the IP addresses of visitors. The truth will be put out and you can make your own decisions. *** Let all who read this know:
    The Jig is Up Atlas! *** Posted by The Jig Is Up Atlas at 12/31/09

    January 2, 2011 8:01 am

    As usual, the “Hate Blog” seems to believe anything at first glance.

    While their comments indicate that they have recorded an IP address from the person who exposed Gene Berardelli as the owner of the “Hate Blog”, they also show a lack of any detective skills when they are calling everyone Hayon (soon I will have a “second name”).

    This is only their latest “discovery” and a continuation of “knowing” everyone that commented.

    I would give you a donation, Jim, since I know how cheap you are, to go buy some turtle wax to shine your head, that’s what you get for ripping your hair out in front of the blogs.

    In case nobody was paying attention — “Kettle Black” was
    ignored by TJIUA — Again ZapEveningICAWP@aol.com
    ________________________________ All we heard from TJIUA was the
    sound of crickets and other creatures of the night after the KETTLE
    BLACK material was posted on ASIB following Mayor Bloomberg’s visit
    to Bay Ridge. You see His Honor came in to see first hand the
    disasterous snow removal and almost complete transit breakdown in
    South West Brooklyn that inexcusably lasted for days. At about the
    same time the MILLION DOLLAR TAX BOMB hit the “owner” of the Kettle
    Black. ASIB asked some poignant questions about the juxtaposition
    and possible connection between these events in the context of the
    recent history of Kettle Black. Who did the set-up and advance work
    for the Mayor to come to the notorious Kettle Black? Was Marty
    Golden’s staff involved in any way? Did the mayor have any prior
    dealings involving “goings on” at that location earlier in 2010?
    Connections, connections, connections????? Bloomberg – Manning -
    Casatelli – Golden – Quaglione – Manning – Golden – Crowley -
    Crowley – DiCarlo – Pontic – NYPD-IAS – Pennachio… (note: these
    connections for the most part are not just single links, but over,
    and over, and over) (btw, was there any confirmation that State
    Senator, Martin Golden, was there at Kettle Black with the mayor;
    or for that matter was Craig Eaton there?)

      You must have came back from mass early, good to see your back to the usual hate blogging.

      Aren’t you the guy who advised Perfetto on how to you know get off in front of that just he helped get elected?

    You know after long review, I am really a pathetic, hate blogger, who has resorted to nothing else. My political career is useless at this point, I have been kicked out of every political club from Joe Ferris on down to Arnaldo Ferraro. I am just a good for nothing lackey at this point, I have become so pathetic, Bellevue can’t even save me at this point.

    I post half hour comments because I have become so intimated from the real Republican blogs, that I need to fight my battles on some crazy, anti-Republican blog, you know the only place where people will accept me, since there just as pathetic as I have become.

    All I am left is to threaten lawsuits, but than again for me that won’t be a good thing. Without my computer, I become a shell of myself, even more of a shell of how pathetic I have become.

    I will post later after 2, probably 2 or 3 comments, here you know the long ones, I am infatuated with Gene Berardelli, I call him Eugene, kind of like how I call Ralph, Rafaellle.

    I am so pathetic, I attacked even my own church, and it’s priest, I am desperate to do anything to become something, since I am worse than a has been at this point, I am a never was.

    I am going to call Jonathan, and Roy now so they can post 2 or 3 comments attacking real Republicans, since that’s what they do. Gotta go, gotta put on my trench coat, and think for the next hour about calling Gene Berardelli, Eugene.

  59. Free legal advice is worth what you pay for it... permalink
    January 2, 2011 3:27 pm

    Earlier today, somebody was trying to be helpful to the nice folks at “The Jig is Up Atlas”, we suppose. A nice commentator on TJIUA “JohnnyAppleSeed said… *** Hey Jig, *** If you guys get sued it is too easy to counter-sue (really an entirely new suit) and subpoena IP addresses from wordpress as well as blogspot. [Somebody] would be f_-_ed if what all you guys say here (at TJIUA) is true which I suspect it is. *** There are also some lawyers which will work these types of 1st Amendment cases for free (pro bono). ***
    I am an attorney and would consider offering more indepth advice and analysis. I emailed you from a similar name to this commenter name.”

    Well, there’s the rub in all this “…if what all you guys say here (at TJIUA) is true which I suspect it is…” — well, Mr. JohnnyAppleSeed, what if once or twice or countless times a “Hate Blog” and/or its regular commentators knowingly made false statements about somebody or made statements about somebody that were demonstrably false with a reckless disregard for their truth or falseness, or if a pattern of false statements were made with a malicious or other evil intent. If such statements resulted in actual damages or if they were in a category of slander per se, it probably would be bad for the “Hate Blog” and those who “formed”; “own”;
    “support”; “sponsor”; etc.; etc.; etc…. (btw, is there anybody out there who can tell us exactly how long was it that TJIUA happily referred to itself as a “Hate Blog” while it solicited anonymous writers?)

    Just noticed, the Jig attacks Rosenberg and Kessler. Two more Jews. This proves the lack of leadership by Craig Eaton. If he had any control over the Republican Party, he would demand the Jig to stop baselessly attacking anyone.

    The Jig is making it easy for the Young Republicans to gather support by naming all the “enemies” of the county.

    How stupid can the jig get?

      Don’t forget Arnaldo Ferraro either, this guy reallly is a tax cheat, and was investigated by the IRS. Which is a big problem for Jonathan since he royally screwed over Arnaldo and Lucretia last year, sort of like how Yoseph did the same.

      I hear Lucretia and Arnaldo have long memories especially when it comes to who helped, and didn’t help there campaigns.

      Looking forward to seeing Jonathan on his own without the help of Marty Connor this time.

    After reading my two long comments, I have become even more pathetic.

    I was completely happy though I was mentioned on not only one blog, but two blogs. I have gotten more attention here than when I defended John O’Hara. I have to continue to keep writing these long posts, so I can keep paying off my political master Ralph Perfetto for his endorsements of me, and actually giving me a case to practice all those years ago.

    All I can think about is Eugene Berardelli, between him and my good fellow, liberal Democrat pal Justin Brannan, I am not sure who is on my mind more.

    I really wish I didn’t open my pathetic mouth, when it came to the lawsuit, I am really getting attacked, and Jonathan, and Roy can’t keep up here.

    I will have to call Yoseph and see if he can throw in a few Eugene comments, since he doesn’t like him either, while I am at it, I will mention Craig Eaton a few times since I am really jealous of him.

    I just forgot I have to tell my wife to give $500 to Barack Obama, that I can keep attending Heritage club meetings.

    This time it’s the Māḡēn Dāwīḏ, the Shield of David, or as it’s sometimes called, The Jewish Star.

    It’s been said and bears repeating — Craig Eaton’s GOP gunsels at TJIUA have neither sense nor sensibility, and they are shameless.

    It’s not just the symbols of Mr Hayon’s Judaism that are being coopted, it’s the very Orthodox practices that mean something to many here in Brooklyn that are being mocked, and compared to extreme Sharia Law as practiced in other parts of the world.
