Turner's Victory at NY GOP Convention is BIG For Brooklyn!

Congressman Bob Turner's 72-hour run resulted in qualifying for the ballot for US Senate.  And it all started with Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig Eaton - again. 
This has got to be some kind of record!  

Congressman Bob Turner, who announced his candidacy for US Senate on Tuesday after Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig Eaton suggested that the NY GOP get him into the race to unseat Kirsten Gilligan... I mean, Gillibrand, earned ballot access on the very first round of voting, garnering over 25% of the weighted county vote.


Turner joins judicial activist Wendy Long (the top vote-getter on the strength of upstate counties - and some vote whipping by Carl Paladino) and Nassau County Comptroller George Maragos as the three GOP hopefuls in the June 26 Primary.  

Now, yeah, I know I'm biased - but this is a tremendous victory not only for Turner, but for our Brooklyn GOP Chairman Craig Eaton.  He put himself out there, he said how he felt about the field, he saw an opportunity and he successfully led the surge that got Congressman Turner on the ballot.  This is a familiar story, as it was Chairman Eaton who pushed for then-citizen Turner into contention for another designation - candidate for the 9th Congressional district that he now serves.

But here's the real impact for Brooklyn - think about the boost that having our local Congressman on the top of the state-wide ticket would be to Senator Marty Golden, Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, Congressman Michael Grimm and all of our other down-ballot candidates in Brooklyn.  

Think about where the Brooklyn GOP was when new leadership led by Chairman Eaton was in the fall of 2007 - one elected official, a negative account balance, few motivated volunteers, no base of operation and no real credibility or influence.  

Well look at us now, four elected officials (with a fifth on the way in David Storobin on Tuesday in the SD27 special election), a positive account balance (with more money on the way!), the "Victory Center" in Bensonhurst, an awesome vibrant Young Republican organization that is known and liked statewide, innovations like Brooklyn GOP Radio  - and respect and credibility among our peers.

So add the Brooklyn GOP and Chairman Eaton among the winners today in Rochester.  And get ready for Turner For NY 2012!

    Lets go Bob Turner.

    Will Turner WIN?

    Of course.

    Like I wrote on Atlas. These last few weeks I have been getting emotional with all the junk I see going around in the newspapers and the media in general about this great country

    I know you all try hard for I do see into many of you what you are really about.

    Please rest assure I am not some old man with a cane who lives in a fantasy world of TV characters or who thinks he is God.

    I can be serious if need be, I joke and write of humor, God, etc for I have a lot of pain what I have saw and felt in my life

    I am not God or insane.

    I can read the future believe it or not it is your FREE WILL.

    I am a man with a lot of compassion who loves this country with all of his heart and hates what he sees those that are evil doing.

    Again Lets Go Turner or I should say Senator for if you guys say he is ok, especially Craig than he is ok in my thoughts

    Obama family fun show is cancelled today

    Out for a smoke

  2. Turner is the only Republican for Senate who is not a nerd. He knows how to fight on the floor. Longman is an academic like Malpese, and she should be on the Suprime Court. Maranos is like Blechmin, a green eyeshades guy who should run for State Combtroller. Stick a plunger up Cuomolectual Bloombugger’s nose to relieve his congestion pricing. Parasite Manhattan residents, like Washington DC and ex-convicts should not be allowed to vote. (Unless they want to vote in Europe.) Require a valid driver license for any employment. Double tax any parasite not working for profit. Build and join rail hubs at Woodside and West Farms to bypass Manhattan. Liberate Long Island City and Brooklyn from over a century of 1898 Tamanend oppression. Move UN, missions, residences to Governor’s Island surrounded by gators. Anyone who shops at Whole Foods must consume at least one of their own organs weekly. Apartment dwellers must consume any vermin found on their premises. Turn Central Park into a smelly green waste processing facility. Brandmerk the forehead of anyone having an abortion. Access in and out of subway stations should only be by firepole. Your islamosympathic gutterswabbing clothing and pierced privates spread disease. If you weren’t such baby killing, vermin snuggling perverts you wouldn’t be driving up our health costs, then collecting disability for your commie nutty organizing dementia. Your passive aggressive labor unions grab our guns, cars (congestion pricing), balls (SONDA), wallets, and homes but we will grab your throats and dang you from trailer bone tolls. Second Amendment is the ONLY Homeland Security. Wait until we waste all your stumbent subprimes, so you need to sell your affectation glutton art and work instead of diverting tuition and Y2K scams to soviet freezeniks! Deport for multiple visits to same country. If you controlled your own pension neither your boss nor the government could abuse it. Lynch soviet wealth fund abetting aghadhimmic peakies when oil plummets! Parasites complain about salaries but pig out with benefits. Global warming is a grant grubbing extortion racket. Urban sprawl annoys terrorists. Hazards and pollution stem mostly from mandates. Aqua volte! This land wasn’t built by bullocraps.

  3. Turner is Ed Koch's used condom left up Ed Cox's rectal cavity. In 2010 he fell on his face, despite a bravado of outlandish promises, because he was on a vanity trail and not a serious candidate.

  4. Athens Archbishop Christodoulos said we deserved 9/11 (ISBN 960-252-007-8). On the Thursday before Easter Greeks chant pogrom inciting Beatitudes against "godslaying lawless Jews"in Greek, but change it to "Assemby of Jews" in English. They removed American Archbishop Iakovos because he was too American and Jerusalem Patriarch Irineos because he was too friendly with Israelis. Old witches who used to work at diners until they dropped now slip "Elder Protocols" and other terror claptrap in the pews. When I was growing up priests, would bathe, shave, wear pants - Robed, bearded, stovetopped priest is terror sympathist by definition. Greece was only euronation not to vote for 1947 Israel creation. In such time of war, we should insist that any public assembly of more than ten mandatorily be only in English! These heathen necromantic iconolaters have the nerve to ban Psalm 150 organs? If the Greek government did an Enron with its own books, and Greeks Trojan Horse their Greek taxes, what makes you think they pay the IRS? They go to Greece annually to tend their undisclosed accounts on soviet Cyprus. Notice the soviet spy money laundered Metsos disappeared with Cyprus complicity? Did Illinois Giannoulias, Florida's Crist, California's Angelides and New York's Gianaris apply Greek budgeting techniques like Sarbanes Oxen? Greek Ponzi fourfold Eurodefecit boasts Trojan Horse Perfidy, Klephth Brigandage. Upset that industrious Albanians invaded their lazy, gungrabbing, babykilling homeland, the soviet-churched Greeks vindictively hire, house and promote illegals. As quakes render their homes disposable, Greeks are oblivious to the very concept of maintenance. Instead of blaming environmetalists for fires and socialists for deficits, jealousy driven soviet faith seeks scapegoats. Olympia Snowjob supports Obamacare and abortion because of her gangreen patriarch (Is Orthodox Christianity progressive? Michelle Boorstein Washington Post 11-4-09 Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew spoke about the spiritual imperative for nonviolence, universal health care and reducing consumption to help the environment.) Ancient Greeks reduced consumption to help the environment through infanticide and sodomy. Palamite Zealotes massacred Thessalonian aristocracy in preparation for Cantacuzene usurpation via hesychast hyperventilatory hallucination. This soviet socialism motivated Anatolian farmers to embrace Turks in the 1400s to avoid redistributative taxation and then for liberated mainlanders to migrate to Smyrna in the 1800s.
