NEWSFLASH: Atlas Shrugs Not Written By Judge

April 24, 2011

Who is John Galt?

Having to say something over and over again can get tiresome.

Recently, Room 8’s Gatemouth released a lengthy manifesto in reply to the antics of an entirely irrelevant hate blog regarding Mr. Judge. He, we are sure, had his reasons for doing so…

Regardless, after gauging the political chatter out there, I thought this an appropriate time to issue our own simple statement about Jonathan Judge: he is not and has not been a writer of this blog.

To engage in further discussion on this issue is unnecessary. However, Mr. Gatemouth raises some intriuging issues in his latest piece, entitled “NOW IT CAN BE TOLD: MY SECRET RELATIONSHIP WITH JONATHAN JUDGE.

It cannot be denied that this blog has and will continue to support the cause of reform in Brooklyn GOP politics and politics at large. To that end, we have had many kind things to say about Mr. Judge, the soon-to-be former President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club. Indeed, we are currently reaching out to Mr. Judge and various other members of his “proudly indepdendent” organization (as well as many other local Democrats and Republicans) to discuss the state of local politics and how best to fix the broken system we have.

Reform is our goal, not pettiness, as is for some.

We will be discussing these and other issues in future pieces.

But for the present, I’m afraid I must say you will not be learning anytime soon the answer to the appropriate and famous query: “Who is John Galt?”

(Let alone “who are Dagny Taggart, Midas Mulligan, Francisco D’Anconia, and Hank Rearden?”)

    Gatemouth at Room 8 has more in common with this blog than he thinks. Both have been critical of Vito Lopez and the GOP establishment. Regardless of party, if you want to get things done in our republic, you have to work together with those you don’t entirely agree with somewhat.

    Otherwise, he’s just a Democratic partisan not interested in reform.

    Just remember: the enemy of my enemy is my friend…

  4. "Judas Judge" betrays "Birther-A Nation" because he's a sock puppet for... permalink

    Russell Gallo can be relied upon to get it wrong and to say
    it badly on most things political. It’s been widely known and
    reported that Gallo is one of Craig Eaton’s principal spokespersons
    on Brooklyn GOP[Blog-] Radio and on Eaton’s hate blog “The Jig is
    Up Atlas”; in addition he was designated by Eaton to run the
    Eaton-created, captured and controlled “Brooklyn Young Republicans”
    Club. Unfortunately, this “HOMERIC” character has one of the
    classic hero flaws. No, not his hubris, though he does have that
    “in Spades” … he is obedient to a fault to his unworthy bosses.
    **** Last week on Brooklyn GOP[Blog-] Radio, among some other
    inappropriate, intemperate and incendiary remarks, Gallo said that
    President Barack Obama’s birth certificate flap was “…the
    greatest constitutional crisis in the history of the country….”
    (Sort of forgot the Civil War, champ. What a military and political
    mind that Gallo has!). Then, last night, the very same Russell
    Gallo said the matter had been settled and the issue is closed. Yes
    sir, he surely did. “BHO II” flashes some green security-striped
    paper, with old looking typing saying “Hawaii this… and Honolulu
    that”; and ma “Stanley” and dad “BHO I”; with some nice raised
    seals and Russell Gallo folds like a magician’s top hat. He even
    berated senile Vinny Bocchino for bringing up the dual citizenship
    parentage in the context of “natural born citizen”, as if the new
    certificate changed that completely. **** Well truth seekers, what
    does this show us about Mr. Gallo? Possibly, that in addition to
    being wildly flamboyant, flip and feckless, Russell Gallo is
    pathologically fickle — so that in Gallo’s world, “the greatest
    constitutional crisis in the history of the country” comes and goes
    based on press conferences and news cycles. **** Of course, the
    simpler answer is that Eaton or Golden, or maybe both, told Gallo
    to just-put-a-sock-in-it on the Obama-Birther stuff, since Gallo
    had been so brutally OUTED on “ROOM EIGHT” earlier in the week
    F-bombing his C-i-C and our President. Since that’s most likely the
    case, the Republican District Leader of the 47th AD, Dictator and
    “President for Life” of Eaton’s “Brooklyn Young Republicans,” Craig
    Eaton’s most-devoted and devilish hate blogger at “The Jig is Up
    Atlas” and “Moron # 1 or Moron #2 of the Brooklyn GOP[Blog-] Radio
    moron tag-team Gino Bernardelli and ‘Papa’ Gallo” has been collared
    and properly put in his place as the noisy lap dog or purse pet
    that he is.

    April 29, 2011 9:14 pm

    If one bothers to look at the sheep dip that is routinely
    dumped by “The Jig is Up Atlas” one might be forced to wonder, “Who
    does this stuff; and why?” A typical example is the April 29, 2011
    post, “The Brooklyn Young Republicans Brooklyn GOP Radio And
    Southwest Brooklyn Congressman Michael Grimm Score Key Wednesday
    Night Victories!!” by ygi, “AAA”. ***/// The posting contains the
    kind of grammatico-tropisms that would have made Anthony Burgess
    proud if he were crafting characters for a novel about a group of
    benighted individuals going completely insane from diddling each
    other while on Brooklyn GOP Radio (“The End of the World Nudes”),
    or a group of ruffians from a lumpen prole-land in Southwest
    Brooklyn getting their jollies pretending to be upwardly mobile
    Republicans beating up on other Republicans (“A Cuckoo Clockwork
    Porrage” [perhaps the closest rhyme to “orange” in the language of
    the Bard of S-on-A]). ***/// Worse than the grammar, however, is
    the piece’s complete slipping of its moorings to reality.
    “Victories” what possible meaning of that word relates to any part
    or parts of the two or three gatherings discussed in AAA’s post?
    Worse still, “…it was one action-packed event in Southwest
    Brooklyn indeed…” these were two COMPETING EVENTS linked only by
    the unstable and eccentric orbit of Craig Eaton, who tried to usurp
    some credit for one by being its only reporter at the other. ***///
    “…and you know what really grinds my gears….” the way certain
    of Eaton’s key operatives, who are active with both TJIUA and
    Brooklyn GOP Radio, hold up to ridicule on their blog-radio program
    a poor elderly Latino Republican (with the same name as “ I’m …
    the Eighth, I am …the eighth ‘old man called …”) and don’t have
    the common decency to even note his presence in the TJIUA report of
    the event, even though all the co-diddlers made sure that their
    names and those of their buddies were mentioned.

    Eugene Berardelli needs to contact the Bureau of Silly
    Facts to register and present evidence concerning his claim that
    Google “…Thinks… ” that Brooklyn GOP [Blog-] Radio is number
    one at anything (“Google Thinks We’re No.1!” by Gene R. Berardelli,
    Esq., “Brooklyn G.O.P. Radio – Official Show Blog”, Thursday, April
    28, 2011. We have reason to be suspicious because that bit of fluff
    was picked up whole by TJIUA in its April 30, 2011 post “Brooklyn
    GOP Radio #1 Searched Show Of All GOP Radio Shows!!!” by ygi,
    “AAA”. ***/// Like his “cousin ‘Gino Bernardelli’ ” who holds
    himself out as a lawyer with some regularity on “Brooklyn GOP
    Radio”, there is a rumor that Eugene Berardelli is any attorney,
    who as part of his practice goes to the media with questionable
    “facts” to advance his case oblivious to the real fact that he
    keeps losing that case on the law and the facts in court. A similar
    rumor would probably be true if it were uttered about Mr.
    Berardelli, as one of the key blogging nabobs of Brooklyn GOP
    Chairman Craig Eaton. ***/// Any “facts” about the Brooklyn GOP
    that you see or hear emanating from the likes of Brooklyn GOP
    Chairman Craig Eaton, “The Jig is Up Atlas”, “Brooklyn GOP [Blog-]
    Radio”, and Eugene Berardelli, or under any of their other assorted
    styles and pseudonyms can be safely ignored as irrelevant, because
    during the entire regime of Craig Eaton the Brooklyn GOP has been
    PASSING EVENT AND MOMENT. Q.E.D. when you see or hear such things
    from Eugene Berardelli, Esq., “The Brooklyn Barrister”, they are
    equally irrelevant, and in addition, likely as not, NOT FACTS AT
    ALL. ***/// For the record, Mr. Berardelli, “GOOGLE” doesn’t
    “…Think…” about “GOP Radio” (Brooklyn’s or anybody else’s) at
    all. It’s only thee and me, and I have my doubts about

    TJIUA’s May 3, 2011 “JIG EXCLUSIVE: Burn In Hell Bin Laden”
    was a complete and irresponsible hoax. Everything about it was an
    intentional fraud on whatever dwindling E-traffic visits that
    pathetic site. The gory photo was a phony; as were the accompanying
    jingoist expressions of hollow bravado. The continued existence of
    “The Jig is Up Atlas” bespeaks the profound lack of seriousness
    that has been hallmark of Brooklyn Republican leaders: Craig Eaton,
    Russell Gallo and Eugene Berardelli for a very long time. As long
    as they are in control of the Brooklyn GOP, the local Republican
    Party simply cannot be taken seriously. It’s long past time to just
    pass them by and say, “It’s all over. Nothing left to see here.
    Move along.”

      For over a week, the local GOP has been trying to claim
      credit or come up with some pseudo-backfill to explain away the
      monumental success of President Barack Obama in finding and
      eliminating Osama Bin Laden. Instead of all of the verbal
      gymnastics, trying to avoid that success, we would rather the GOP
      showed some patriotic spirit, just said “thank you,” and go on
      their way into well deserved oblivion.

    ABSOLUTELY SHAMLESS: Lowly NY State Senator Tries To Take Credit For Death of Bin Laden
    Now we can say we have TRULY seen it all; this is classic Marty Golden trying to take credit for something he had absolutely nothing to do with… four years ago!

    State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn) is now vaguely trying to insinuate himself with the brave men of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group (now known to the world as SEAL Team Six) responsible for killing Osama bin Laden. Marty’s office fired off a completely random press release about how the senile State Senator suddenly recalls having met SEAL Team Six back in 2007.

    The release sent out this past Wednesday exclaims “SENATOR GOLDEN RECALLS HONORING MILITARY UNIT RESPONSIBLE FOR DEATH OF OSAMA BIN LADEN” cleverly putting Marty’s name and “death of Osama Bin Laden” in same sentence. The first and last time that will EVER happen in recorded U.S. history.

    Truth be told, Marty was probably busy getting a foot massage at a goddamn Easter Egg Hunt while these brave men and women were planning their midnight raid high above the Pakistani city of Abbottabad. But don’t let that stop ya, Marty! You go on ahead and put yourself at the scene of the crime, right by the burning building catching the jumping babies from the roof.

    Marty, you are my HERO!

    The pathetic press release continues:

    “Senator Golden today issued comments on NAVY Seal Team 6, responsible for hunting and killing Osama Bin Laden, highlighting his recognition of the Unit at a ceremony held in Brooklyn in May 2007, for their honorable military service through their support of the Global War on Terror.”

    Yes, even back in 2007, Marty KNEW this would be the team who caught & killed the world’s most wanted man. As it turns out, the Assistant Senate Majority Whip is also a palm-reader! His office is open for psychic readings on Saturday mornings by appointment only. Call John Q. for scheduling.

    This entire thing is SO blindingly pathetic that even I can barely stand it. I can picture Marty calling his office in a befuddled senior moment spilling Bagel Boy coffee on his lap and in a rare moment of clarity he pulls onto the shoulder of the Thruway as he recalls meeting some Navy Seals four years ago while his staff scurries around the office like lunatics on a Sunday night trying to dig up some semblance of a connection between Marty and the death of Osama Bin Laden. What a pathetic P.o.S.

    This is really the most shameless thing I’ve ever seen Marty do. And I’ve seen Marty do plenty of shameless shit over the past 10+ years. This takes the cake. But for a guy who built his reputation on taking credit for shit he had nothing to do with, should we really be surprised?

    • State Senator Golden shows that he still remains "engrossed" in his own 2007 resolution, rather than in "Seal Team Six" permalink
      May 9, 2011 11:59 pm

      Golden’s official State Senate press release serves well to
      remind everybody that a key part of Golden’s resolution in 2007
      specifically required that resolution itself “absorb all of the
      attention” from the honors bestowed on “Navy Seal Team Six”.
      +-> +-> +-> Golden’s 2007 resolution
      specifically ordered that it was not to be transmitted to the
      United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group until
      everyone’s attention had been fully engrossed. More than anything
      else, Golden has reminded us yet again that no event is too
      important or to honored for him to try to squeeze all of the
      self-aggrandizement possible out of it. 😦

    wouldn’t that be the single most important fact in his descriptive
    bio? Oh, that’s the same blind spot that his boss Golden and the
    rest of the State Senate R-Cs have. They don’t think it’s ethically
    necessary to disclose all of their business and financial
    interests, even if there is a possible direct conflict. Maybe, we
    should change the headline above. What the heck! With the way
    things are now being run in Golden’s office, it’s probably being
    ghost-written by Jeff Krause, anyway…..

    Anthony Weiner has served himself up like a “pig in a
    blanket” to Craig Eaton’s Brooklyn GOP brain trust at “Jig Is Up
    Atlas” and “Brooklyn GOP Radio”. This is their kind of story: it
    requires no thoughtful analysis; and it allows a brainless rant at
    a Democrat office holder without having to defend a single
    Republican position on current and future budgets, structural
    deficits, deficit caps, tax policy apparently defending the wealthy
    at the expense of the middle class and necessary changes in
    Medicare and Social Security advocated by the GOP. Look at these
    titles: “Embattled Congressman Anthony Weiner Attempts To
    Shamefully Fundraise While Dodging Questions About Twitter
    Picture.”, TJIUA post 6-2-11 by “AAA”; “Weinergate?”, TJIUA post
    5-31-11 by “Judas Judge” (reputed to be 46th AD Republican District
    Leader Russell Gallo; this is his kind of lowbrow posting, because
    it includes the twitter photo of the W[w]einer brief) . Not to be
    outdone as the Brooklyn GOP’s top lowbrow, Craig Eaton’s right hand
    media maven Eugene Berardelli posted the following on the Brooklyn
    GOP Radio Blog homepage:“Send me your top ‘Weiner’
    references/jokes/euphemisms & we’ll pick the top ones on
    #brooklyngopradio! #weinergate yesterday ·
    reply · retweet · favorite ” Of course Gene Berardelli, Russell
    Gallo and Brian Doherty and the rest of the GOP pre-adolescent
    yuck-yuck bunch outdid themselves with their June 1, 2011 blogcast
    with the re-repeat-repeat-re-repeat Oscar Meyer weiner song with
    the voice over about “meat, all meat….” One better than the next
    including Jacob Kornbluh chattering about Weiner’s weiner; as
    Eugene Berardelli said, “Join us for all the fun here.” Of course
    there was some wild conjecture, what was not responsibly discussed
    was why Weiner’s twitter “problem” is important.
