A nice summation of the dastardly events, but nothing really new here.

Amazing piece of literature. Put this on the front page of the NY Times

"A nice summation of the dastardly events, but nothing really new here."

My intent was to put the 19th Council District in perspective and examine several angles that were brought up here on the Queens Crap site. Dan Halloran wants to unite the district and work hard to maintain the quality of life for his constituents. I don't trust Ackerman, Schenkler, and the rest of the hit squad associated with the Queens Tribune and I wanted them to know that people are watching and won't tolerate such behavior. For example, I am curious to know who is really behind the call for an investigation of the November election and the claims of alleged anti-Asian polling irregularities. I have noted that the media all but ignored the attack on an NYPD officer who tried to question a driver of a van carrying Kevin Kim supporters to the polling places. And then there was the allegations of an attack on Kim campaign workers:

There is an Ackerman connection to the incident, "Kim spokesman Michael Tobman responded, "The Halloran campaign is proving that those who have nothing productive to talk about say only negative things about others. Our neighborhoods deserve better than this nastiness."

Therefore, I hope that you see my article as a pre-emptive strike against further Halloran bashing and any attempts by the Tribco crew to create divisiveness instead of unity. Dan Halloran is a good man and deserves a chance to prove himself. I don't want to see the Queens Tribune continue to get away with "advocacy" journalism that is really propaganda and deception. It is hurtful and wrong.

My favorite line---
Here we have a well-connected newspaper publisher being lauded by the DA’s office while there are ads promoting prostitution within the Tribune’s pages.

Is that a Trib whore on the upper right hand corner of the front page?

Alan:
Why don't YOU challenge Ackerman for his seat?

I can't think of a better person.

You've got MY vote.

Who is Alan Gross..."Anonymous #4"?

Alan Gross is obviously a citizen doing his duty...connected some dots...a man of conscience who just pulled the rug from under those overconfident shady "Tribo" partners.

Now let the chips fall where they may...hopefully and eventually on the floor of FBI headquarters!

Great job Alan!

Now let some other lethargic citizens step forward to DO SOMETHING instead of the usual complaining...you grouch potatoes!

And have a nice day (heh, heh, heh) Congressman Gary and the 2 Mikes!

Nothing like a little heat to warm up a cold winter.

Whew...this gives me pause.

I'm breathless!

Once again...THANKS!

Is there an email for that Ethics office in Washington?

I'm more of an email kinda girl.

Sure. Be my guest. Thanks for asking:

By the way, I am not a politician and I am better at being a watchdog. I would rather expose corruption than be a part of it.

primadonna said...

Good for you Alan!

But I do have a question regarding the Asian escort ads in the Tribune..

Is it possible that it's all linked to organized crime and someone is FORCING the Tribune people to put those ads in or else? Just wondering...

Very unlikely. There are hundreds of different ads, and I seriously doubt that one "famiglia" (or pimp) controls all of them. It's greed for advertising dollars that drives it.

Who R U...."who are you"?

Funny I'll bet your ISP address is somewhere in Fresh Meadows (home of "Tribco")...yeah!

"Ruffles" Rafferty"...perchance?

Nah...it must be one of the 2 Mikes.

Can't let the go-fer "ruffles" handle a job this big!

Anonymous said...

I'll bet Ackerman is very busy shredding some "funny" files right now!

How is this gonna affect the long term "relationship" that Gary and "the two Mikes" have enjoyed for all these years?

Which Mike-rat will jump ship first from Congressman Gary's sinking vessel?

Anonymous said...

Thanks for Queens crap!

You certainly wouldn't see the Trib breaking this kind of news!

Happy Channukah Tribco pals!

Very nice work, Alan. Your efforts are appreciated.

Ruffles Rafferty Fan Club said...

Looks like Alan painted the Ackerman/Schenkler team into a corner. If they try to defend themselves in the Queens Tribune, the source of information, the Queens Crap blogsite, will be mentioned and more of their readers will come here and learn the truth. On the other hand, they seem to be unable to let things go and may not be able to ignore the publication of the article.

These underhanded people may be planning an attack as we speak. Judging from the way Alan has handled himself so far, this could get very interesting. I checked out some of the items in Alan's article and can't seem to find anything wrong with the facts used. That presents an even greater challenge for those who wish to debunk anything that was written. How is Ackerman going to defend himself? I don't think he has a leg to stand on.

Alan Gross said...

If Gary Ackerman were any type of man, he would have addressed my concerns instead of trying to figure out ways to attack or demean me. His response to my letter shows that he has no intention of responding to me in an appropriate way. So the question is, when will I be "Ack Attacked" myself? I have nothing to hide but my gut tells me that there is still more out there to discover about Ackerman, especially if he does go on the attack. This is what happens when your ego and ambitions get the better of you at the expense of your constituents. Elected officials need to be held up to a higher standard than regular citizens. Even if there is nothing illegal going on, there are certainly questions about morals and ethics that need to be addressed. And that is what I believe!

Gary "The Boutonniere" Ackerman is the same Congressman who voted for resolutions honoring Ramadan and Diwali, but refused to support a resolution honoring Christmas:

Boy, you'd think that the Tribune would attack him for his anti-religious views, right?

Please keep the heat on Ackerman, another useless, lying politician. Congratulations to Alan Gross, a man who truly cares about his community and is willing to do something about it. I hope Ackerman has skid marks on his underwear. He should be scared. Go Alan go. The Queens Crapper Community stands behind you.

Trying 2 Help said...

As seen in the Trib---

A source in the DA’s office familiar with Operation Guardian said the initiative is “aimed at trying to hit the problem from the prosecution point while also trying to help the people that are involved.”

The source, who has more than a decade of experience in these types of cases, also said the DA’s office has come across many sexual service advertisements on the “Erotic Services” page of Craig’s List during the past couple of years. This mode of soliciting and rendezvousing poses a problem for law enforcement.

“When it’s a street problem, it’s probably in a given geographical location,” the source said. “But when it comes to utilizing hotels and motels for meeting a customer, it can be anywhere; it may not be as localized as it otherwise might be.”

I guess if your a friend of the DA, you could get away with murder, or at least prostitution!

re:Sacred Heart R.C. church,Bayside,N.Y.
i want to inform Alan that jesuit priest ,1970"s radical
Fr.Daniel Berrigan was a speaker there. the meeting took place about August,2009. just in time for election day.
can any dots be connected to Fr. Brosnan's actions ,prior to the 19 CM district election?

a transcript of the speech on Q.C.should be interesting. i wonder if it made the church newspaper?

many catholics do not believe in burning draft records,like Berrigan.

a former Republican said...

Now if the 2 bozos...Ragusa & Tabone don't put up a good opposition candidate...
Ackerman will win again!

Time to dump Phil & Vince too!

And please Ms. Berney...stop fiddling with politics. Decline to run again.

a very angry parent said...

Where is the women's movement?

Where is the religious community for that matter?

They should both be picketing the Trib!

Make Nussbaum and company's life hell!

Start a boycott of every business that advertises in the Trib!

C'mon you bored housewives...energize...let's all do something good that affects our children's future!

Perhaps it would have been an interesting tie-in but there is not much that could be found about his visit. I tried to cover many interest angles of that election.
I did find these links about the visit, including a mention on Queens Crap, but the weekly blog is not archived as far as I can tell. If anyone has more info, please contribute.

That's an interesting point. How come the past sermons are unavailable? Does the pastor have something to hide? Perhaps we are not searching in the right places. Any suggestions? Alan can't do everything for us.

Here is the latest from the church. Note that the link does not have a date even thought the bulletin has today's (Dec. 13th) on it.

Read Father Brosnan's sermon and wash it down with this:

Father Brosnan...SURPRISE!!!

Holier Than Thou said...

They're all hypocrites...Brosnan, Ackerman, Schenkler, and all of the other Mikes. They are too arrogant to even see their own follies. People are waking up and they are done! Where's the fork, or perhaps a pitchfork is needed?

Anonymous said...

I wonder how all of this would have played out if Schenkler didn't attack Halloran? Seems like divine justice to put the shoe on the other foot. That whore monger is getting what he deserves! And he's bringing down a lot of deserving people with him. As far as Ackerman, it is high time people demand that their elected officials be accountable to their constituents and not fat cats with deep pockets.

Anonymous said...

Who cares about halloran's religion? nobody. And that's the way it should be.

Who cares what halloran said about Catholic and Christian baptism - comparing baptism to being molested by Jesus via the priest - in 2004 on his own tribal website? According to this site, I guess, nobody.

This is not a freedom of religion issue. It's about someone in public office putting down the practices of other religions.

If you want to protect Pagan rights, I'm with you. But at least be consistent and condemn those who make such inappropriate claims about other religions.
