An email was sent to the Juniper Park Patriots with some interesting information regarding Councilwoman elect Elizabeth Crowley’s campaign finance expenditures. It appears that she paid $1800 dollars in rent to a company owned by her family (Surprisingly, she paid much lees for office space located in Atlas Park). Ready to Learn is was paid money for rent, however, the corporation does not own the building located at 67-52 79th Street. The building is owned by the Crowley family who is in arrears on their property taxes. Thankfully, when Liz pays the rent for the months of September, October and November they will be back in the black and actually turn a profit of $2248.02.

There are quite a few interesting expenditures and many contributions that may raise some eyebrows. Don’t take our word for it, see for yourself.

Questionable Associations of Obama

According to The Associated Press, in his life and career in Illinois, President-elect Barack Obama has crossed paths with some notable figures who have drawn scorn and scrutiny. The mainstream liberal media has continuously ignored many of these associations. They rather talk about how many shoes and what dresses Sarah Palin has purchased

Let us take a good look at these questionable associations:

GOV. ROD BLAGOJEVICH: Obama has maintained a cordial but distant relationship with Blagojevich during the governor's tenure.

He has complimented Blagojevich for running "a sound administration" with "the right priorities." He supported his fellow Democrat for re-election in 2006, even though the governor backed someone else over Obama in the U.S. Senate Democratic primary.

Obama's circle of major Illinois political allies and supporters is largely separate from Blagojevich's, with two major exceptions. Both Obama and Blagojevich got extensive money and support from Chicago businessman Antoin "Tony" Rezko. At least one top aide to Obama, Michael Strautmanis, previously worked for Blagojevich.

But Blagojevich's disdain for Obama was clear in court documents released Tuesday after the Illinois governor was arrested. Blagojevich, accused by federal prosecutors of conspiring to sell or trade for personal benefits the Senate seat left vacant by Obama, was overheard complaining at one point that Obama's people are "not going to give me anything except appreciation." He added: "(Expletive) them."

Obama said Tuesday, "I had no contact with the governor or his office, and so I was not aware of what was happening."

ANTOIN REZKO: "Tony" Rezko, who raised money for the campaigns of both Obama and Blagojevich, is awaiting sentencing after being convicted in June on charges of using clout with Blagojevich's administration to help launch a $7 million kickback scheme.

The charges have no connection to Obama, but Rezko is tied to the Illinois senator in other ways.
Rezko and his family donated at least $21,457 to Obama and helped raise over $200,000 more, though not for his presidential bid. He also advised Obama on the purchase of a new Chicago home and, in his wife's name, purchased a vacant lot next door to the new Obama home when the seller wanted to dispose of both properties at the same time. Rezko then sold a slice of the property to Obama.

Obama has donated Rezko's contributions to charity and says it was a mistake to work with Rezko on buying the house.

JEREMIAH WRIGHT: Wright was Obama's minister for 20 years. He helped Obama embrace Christianity, performed Obama's marriage, and baptized Obama and his two daughters.

Wright was known for thundering "God Damn America" in clips that dominated cable television news programs for weeks last spring. Wright accused the government of creating AIDS.

Obama has done his best to distance himself from his former minister, to the point of resigning from the church that Wright once led.

Wright's comments were a stumbling block for Obama's campaign. In an impassioned speech about faith and race, the Democrat at first expressed support for Wright, saying that "I can no more disown him than I can my white grandmother."

But six weeks later during a speech at the National Press Club, Wright offered eyebrow-raising opinions about the U.S. government, praised Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and hinted that Obama was distancing himself from the pastor for political expediency.
The next day, Obama said he was outraged and denounced Wright's remarks.

WILLIAM AYERS: Today, Ayers is a university professor and a member of Chicago's intellectual establishment. Forty years ago he was a member of the Weather Underground, a radical group that claimed responsibility for a series of bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

Ayers was a fugitive for years with his wife, fellow radical Bernadine Dohrn. But after surrendering in 1980, the charges against Ayers were dropped because of prosecutorial misconduct.

Obama had a very limited relationship with Ayers, who lives in the same neighborhood. They served together on the board of a Chicago charity, and in the mid-1990s when Obama first ran for office; Ayers hosted a meet-the-candidate session for Obama at his home.

Ayers was front and center in GOP claims that Obama was "palling around with terrorists," as Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin put it.

Obama has condemned Ayers' radical activities, and there's no evidence they ever were close friends or that Ayers advised Obama on policy.

Ayers said in November that he hardly knew Obama. "I think my relationship with Obama was probably like thousands of others in Chicago. And, like millions and millions of others, I wish I knew him better," Ayers said in a newspaper interview.

EMIL JONES: Jones, the president of the Illinois Senate, amounts to Obama's political godfather and was an important part of Obama's long shot victory for U.S. Senate in 2004. He helped the little-known politician meet the right people, and he picked Obama to handle high-profile legislation during the two years leading up to the election.

But Jones' political style is very different from Obama's.

Jones is known for steering state money to a few favored institutions, including some that employ his relatives. Several of his relatives have gotten state jobs, and his wife's government salary jumped 60 percent after he became Senate president. He has played an important role in blocking ethics legislation in Illinois.

When Jones announced last summer that he would retire from the Illinois Senate when his term ends in January, an Obama campaign spokesman said "Jones has been a passionate advocate who has fought for working families and the underprivileged."
Jones was considered a possible successor to Obama in the Senate.

RASHID KHALIDI: Khalidi is a scholar and author on Middle Eastern affairs who has criticized Israeli policies and was part of a Palestinian advisory panel to peace talks in the early 1990s.
He's also a friend of Obama.

They met while both were teaching at the University of Chicago and living in the same neighborhood. Obama and his wife, Michelle, sometimes had dinner with Khalidi and his wife, Mona. The Khalidis hosted a political fundraiser for Obama in 2000, and the Woods Fund charity gave money to the Arab-American Action Network, run by Mona Khalidi, while Obama served on the charity's board.

Khalidi and Obama have both said they hold very different opinions on Israeli issues, but their friendship has been used to raise questions about Obama's support for Israel — and to generate Internet headlines such as "Meet Obama's Terrorist Friend."
Late in the 2008 presidential campaign, the Republican nominee, John McCain, and Palin criticized Obama for attending a 2003 party for Khalidi. Obama's campaign dismissed the complaints, saying Khalidi was not an adviser to him and that Obama does not share Khalidi's views.

MICHAEL PFLEGER: Pfleger, a Roman Catholic priest in Chicago, has been known as a firebrand for years. He has protested over a wide range of issues, including gun shops and Jerry Springer. Obama has referred to him as a spiritual adviser.
Last spring, Pfleger visited Obama's church and preached a sermon in which he mocked Hillary Rodham Clinton and accused her of expecting to win the presidential nomination because she was white. Pfleger apologized, but Obama condemned the remarks and resigned from the church.

Eric Ulrich Abuses Board of Elections Position

According the NY Daily News Eric Ulbitch has been strong arming fellow employees for campaign contributions. In addition, insiders say that "Eric the Boy Blunder" used Board of Election equipment, materials, resources and information to assist his campaign.

C'mon Eric, didn't you learn in the seminary that stealing is a sin?

NY Daily News

In next year's City Council election, Eric Ulrich, a part-time board employee, has raised $1,405 this year from his fellow board employees.

He has also indulged in another board specialty - working for campaigns on the side.

This fall, the Queens Republican ran GOP candidate Tony Nunziato's bid for a City Council seat and received $900 in "wages" from Thomas Ognibene for his Council run.

Records show board employees are often paid by campaigns. Take Pamela Perkins, the board's $125,646-a-year administrative manager.

In 2005, she got $2,000 from her husband, state Sen. Bill Perkins, during his failed run for Manhattan borough president. In 2006 and 2007, she got three more payments totaling $1,833.53 from his campaigns.

Meanwhile, Parnell Sena got $269 a week ($2,419) for nine weeks from July through mid-September 2005 from Sen. Perkins. Days after the payments stopped, Sena got a $27,111-a-year job as clerk to the board.

Besides coughing up campaign checks or working for campaigns, multiple board employees work for the political parties, records and interviews reveal. The city charter separates politics from public service by barring city officials from holding party positions such as district leaders.
Not so at the city Board of Elections.

The Conflicts of Interest Board has ruled that board employees can run for party positions, and a review of records found at least 30 current employees are either Democratic or Republican district leaders.

That includes Commissioners Gregory Soumas, a Manhattan Democrat, and Juan Carlos Polanco, a Bronx Republican. Both work full time, Soumas as a lawyer and Polanco as $115,541-a-year Assembly employee for the GOP minority. (In contrast, the state board of elections bars its commissioners from public employment).

It is Time For a Dog Run In Juniper Park

Let's not let Robert Holden and his band of rat lovers prevent the community of Middle Village from getting the dog run it needs. Juniper Valley Park belongs to all of us and we should ensure that all segments of the community benefit from the beautiful open green space. Robert Holden has already taken the new ballfields from our two-legged children so we also let him disappoint our four-legged friends. Dog owners unite!

Dog Runs and Dog Parks

Many communities throughout the United States now have safe, legal and enclosed dog runs (and dog parks) where friendly, well-behaved puppies and dogs can play together off-leash. As a founding member of The New York City Coalition For Dogs (a group which was formed in 1989 to address a variety of dog-related issues or concern to dog owners), I have for years been actively involved in establishing official, city-recognized dog runs throughout New York City. When I first became involved in campaigning for dog runs and dog play areas, I was the Vice President of the only legal, city-recognized dog run in Manhattan (New York City): the Mercer Houston Dog Run Association.

There are now at least twelve such places throughout Manhattan (as of the time of this writing). In some states, there are actually entire Dog Parks where dog owners can go to exercise their dogs off leash!Benefits Of A Dog Run Some of the many benefits of enclosed dog runs/dog parks include:

Puppies and adult dogs have a safe(r), enclosed place to play.

Enclosed play areas prevent off-leash dogs from infringing on the rights of other community residents and park users such as joggers, small children, and those who may be fearful of dogs.
By their mere presence, groups of dog owners (and their dogs) help deter crime, and frequently act as the eyes and ears for the police.

A well-exercised dog is a happier and healthier dog.

An exercised dog makes a better next door neighbor than an under-exercised dog. Puppies and dogs which get enough exercise by playing in a dog run, are less likely to create a nuisance, bark excessively, destroy property, jump on passers-by, etc.

In an era where people are often reluctant or afraid to approach or converse with a complete stranger, dog runs bring people together and create a greater sense of community. Dogs help shy people "break the ice". People's love for dogs often creates an important common ground, which as if by magic, serves to break down otherwise impenetrable social and economic barriers. Dogs (and dog runs) are in fact responsible for many a lasting friendship between those who might never otherwise have met.

Recommended Dog Run Rules

Members of the dog run and/or community representatives should establish and enforce reasonable health and safety rules for the dog run, such as the following:

Puppies and dogs must be properly inoculated, be healthy (have no contagious conditions or diseases), and be parasite-free (both internally and externally).

To help prevent dog fights, owners are encouraged to inquire about any dogs already in the run which are unfamiliar to them, prior to entering the run. Observing dogs' body language is also recommended.

No dogs known to be aggressive towards other dogs or people (or exhibiting any threatening behavior) may enter the run.

No bitches in heat may enter the run at any time.

Owners must clean up after their dogs.

Owners are asked to closely supervise their dogs, and at no time should an owner leave the run without their dog(s).

If the dog run is located near local residences, hospitals, schools or libraries, owners should discourage their dogs from barking excessively. This is especially important prior to 10AM and after 9PM.

Parents must refrain from bringing toddlers and small children into the run. Parents are strongly discouraged from bringing children less than 12 years of age. Children should at no time be allowed to run with or chase after dogs in the dog run.

Do not bring rawhide or food into the dog run as dogfights may result.

For safety reasons, please remove pinch (prong) and spike collars from your dog prior to entering the dog run. Many dogs and puppies have been injured by playing with another dog who was wearing a pinch collar. A basic flat buckle collar (with city license, Rabies and identification tags) is recommended.

How to Establish a Successful Dog Run in Your Community
If you are interested in establishing a dog run or dog park in your community, here are some of the recommended steps:

Begin by contacting neighborhood dog owners and dog-related clubs, associations, and organizations in your area.

Post, mail and distribute notices with relevant dog run information. (Recommended destinations include: neighborhood bulletin boards, pet supply stores, animal hospitals & clinics, groomers, etc.)

Organize community residents to contact (write letters, sign petitions, e-mail, and telephone)your community representatives, parks department officials and media, favoring the idea of establishing dog runs in your area, and asking for their support. Letters should be brief, polite and articulate.

Write and e-mail all local newspapers, including weekly "freebies". List several reasons that a dog run will benefit your community (including the non-dog-owning public). Include information about already existing dog runs in other communities/states.

Seek out endorsements from local veterinarians, community leaders, and celebrities who support your cause.

Encourage dog owners and other dog run supporters to attend and speak up at community board and community affairs meetings. Pro dog run buttons and flyers are recommended.
Don't give up! It took us (The NYC Coalition for Dogs) more than three years of active campaigning to get the Washington Square Park Dog Run approved by community board members, park department officials and other relevant community representatives! When I first began petitioning for a dog run in Washington Square Park (in Greenwich Village, downtown Manhattan) I was told by a prominent community board member that I was wasting my time, and that I would NEVER succeed in getting a dog run in Washington Square Park. Famous last words!

Crowley Condemns Cleveland

It appears that Dizzy Lizzy is not the staunch education reformer she claims. According to the Forum West, she ignorantly stated “I would be afraid to send my kids to Grover Cleveland." Parents who have children in that school, the Principal and the entire school administration must be fuming and thinking that Dizzy Lizzy should come off her high horse and rub elbows with the little people. It just goes to show you how out of touch she is with people who live outside of Glendale. (She really doesn’t know what’s going on there either).

Liz Crowley must be taking public relations courses at the Robert Holden School of Idiocy. The Liz Crowley Administration is going to be fun to watch. What a moron.

Here is the entire article from the Forum West

City to Unveil New Plans for Proposed Maspeth School

SCA to Present at January CB5 MeetingBy Conor Greene

After the first plan to build a large combined intermediate and high school in Maspeth was rejected by the local community board, the School Construction Authority will present revised plans to next month.

Despite the negative reaction the plan garnered when it was first presented earlier this year, a SCA officials told the audience at the November 25 Community Education Council 24 meeting that it will bring the revised plans to the City Council for approval, regardless of the reaction it receives from Community Board 5 in January.

The city first proposed building a 1,650-seat school at the former Restaurant Depot site at 74th Street and Grand Avenue to serve students in grades 6-12. In May, CB 5rejected the plan, which called for a 45,000-square-foot, four-story building. Concerns included the size of the building, whether it would be zoned exclusively for local children, and adding traffic to the already congested area.

At the November CEC 24 meeting in PS 58, Lorraine Grillo, executive director and chief of staff of the SCA said that “because of concerns we heard voiced very loudly from the community board, we went back to the drawing board.” The result is a scaled down version that would include seats for 1,000 students, she said. “We tried to come up with an idea that is both useful for the district and palatable for the community… Hopefully this time around, we get a different reaction.”

Grillo explained that the process for building a new school begins when the SCA proposes a potential site. The proposal goes to the community board, which votes on it within its role as an advisory body. “Their vote is just a recommendation, however it very often influences the way the City Council vote,” she said. “We want to be good neighbors… so we go back and see if we can come up with something that will really be accepted.”

However, she indicated that the SCA is committed to moving this proposal forward regardless of the outcome of the January CB 5 meeting. “At that point, if we get a good recommendation – or even if we don’t – we will take this to the City Council Land Use Committee,” she said.

A big consideration for local residents, many who say the area is saturated with schools, is whether it would be zoned only for local children. However, Grillo made it clear that “zoning is not a conversation the SCA has.” That decision will ultimately be made by the city Department of Education.

James McClelland, chief of staff for Councilman Anthony Como, noted that he was involved in the efforts to ensure that the new school being built on Metropolitan Avenue in Forest Hills was zoned locally. “It’s going to be a long fight to get it locally zoned,” he said. “It took us a long time to get those words, ‘locally zoned.’”

Councilwoman Elect Elizabeth Crowley, who will represent the area starting in January, said she is meeting with officials in hopes of securing local zoning. “I think it should be for our community,” she said. “We haven’t had high school seats [in Maspeth] going back to when I went to high school… I would be afraid to send my kids to Grover Cleveland."

The Madness of King Obama and Queen Pelosi

Thankfully, liberals may have a clinical diagnosis to their political psychosis and it is possible that pharmaceutical companies may create a medication to cure their mental disability in the very near future. After years of intense study and psychoanalysis, an eminent top psychiatrist has concluded that liberals are clinically mad. I realize that the academic elite are slow but come on already. I have postulated this for years and only have a 9th grade education.

WASHINGTON – Just when liberals thought it was safe to start identifying themselves as such, an acclaimed, veteran psychiatrist is making the case that the ideology motivating them is actually a mental disorder."
Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."
While political activists on the other side of the spectrum have made similar observations, Rossiter boasts professional credentials and a life virtually free of activism and links to "the vast right-wing conspiracy."
For more than 35 years he has diagnosed and treated more than 1,500 patients as a board-certified clinical psychiatrist and examined more than 2,700 civil and criminal cases as a board-certified forensic psychiatrist. He received his medical and psychiatric training at the University of Chicago.
Rossiter says the kind of liberalism being displayed by Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and his Democratic comrades can only be understood as a psychological disorder."
A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do," he says. "A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation's citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do."
Dr. Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by: creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization; satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation; augmenting primitive feelings of envy; rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

"The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind," he says. "When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious."

Eric Ulrich officially declares his candidacy for hate and deception

He is barely 24 years old, but already Eric Ulbitch has accomplished more dirty and deceitful tactics than many of his older peers — a fact he hid from reporters on Tuesday when he officially declared his candidacy in the 32nd Council District special election. The Ozone Park resident has worked for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the New York City Council and the Queens Board of Elections — “experience that counts,” Ulrich said. We asked Ulrich about his time working with Dennis Gallagher but he informed us that Gallagher only let him wash his bathroom so it really doesn’t count.

Ulbitch was the third official declaration of candidacy for the council seat, currently held by Joseph Addabbo Jr., who defeated state Sen. Serphin Maltese (R-Glendale) on Nov. 4, winning the 15th Senatorial District seat.

Howard Beach Democratic District Leader Frank Gulluscio, 60, declared his run for the seat in April, but kept a low profile during Addabbo’s Senate campaign because Gulluscio realizes Eric has as much chance of winning the seat as Christina Wilkinson has winning a beauty contest.

Retired NYPD lieutenant and lifelong Rockaway resident Glenn DiResto, 38, announced on Nov. 19 that his name will be on the ballot come February, when the special election will be held.

Another Rockaway man, Democratic District Leader Lew Simon, has not yet officially declared his run, but has said he intends to in the coming weeks.

Although some have speculated that Ulbitch’s age, habitual lying and propensity for degrading women will contribute negatively to his run, the soon-to-be-married Republican district leader is not worried. “If there ever was a time when the abolition of morality and horrible ideas are needed in the City Council, that time is now and I’m the man.”

Ulrich’s announcement came as a horror to those who have watched him quietly campaigning over the last few months. As president of the Our Neighbors Civic Association of Ozone Park, Ulrich has been abusing his position and slithering in the community and its local politics.
He demonstrated his forked tongue during Tuesday’s announcement, saying: “We can’t allow taxpaying citizens to bear the brunt of this economic crisis. He predictably stated, “We must reduce this city’s bloated bureaucracy before we lay people off, before we close senior citizen centers and before suspending the property-tax rebates.” Yawn

Ulbitch, a dropout of the Nativity BVM Elementary School, a Catholic school in Ozone Park, went on to say: “Elections are about more than just a candidate. They’re about fighting for a larger piece of the pie for ourselves.”

For the groom-to-be who can longer wed in California, “this is not just a campaign for City Council, it’s a campaign for the destruction of the future of the 32nd Council District.” Ironically, however, one must rely on a vast experience in wallowing in the mud. “

That could be why some of those who joined Ulrich at the announcement ceremony were political old-timers. They included Queens County Republican Chairman Philip Ragusa and former City Councilmen Thomas Ognibene, Al Stabile and Andrew Sidamon Eristoff. However, all thought that they were there to participate in a Save the Whale event but stayed around anyway for the free food.

Ulbitch said he “heard voices” at a young age, first contemplating becoming a Roman Catholic priest before realizing that Priests are prohibited from laying down with farm animals, then attending the Cathedral Preparatory Seminary High School and, in 2005, running for the Republican district leader post. He lost that race by 124 votes, but won when he ran again in 2007 thanks to the voters who live in St John’s Cemetery.

Ulrich continues to act like an idiot on behalf of the community as a civic leader and as a member of a number of organizations, including the Knights of Columbus, the Kiwanis Club of Howard Beach, the Robert Holden Political Moron Squad and the New York Republican State Committee.
As a “calculated, cold-hearted and dispassionate leader who enjoys letting politics get in the way of serving the community,” Ulbitch said he remains pessimistic about the future while looking into the mirror. His reason: “Only in New York City can I guy like me run for office.”

(okay, okay okay, we applied dramatic license here for effect. Any resemblance to those individuals real, fictional or stupid is purely coincidental and not intended.)

Harry Reid Attacks Stinky DC Tourists... Again

The Gateway Pundit reported....

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid attacked the smelly tourists in Washington today:
The Capitol Visitors Center, which opened this morning, may have tripled its original budget and fallen years behind schedule, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid found a silver lining for members of Congress: tourists won't offend them with their B.O. anymore."My staff tells me not to say this, but I'm going to say it anyway," said Reid in his remarks. "In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol. It may be descriptive but it's true."

But, this wasn't the first time he lashed out at smelly Americans.Back on April 14, 2008, Harry said the same thing:

“Mr. President, someone wanting to visit the Capitol today, there is no place for them to gather. They gather -it used to be out on the East Front - now they gather on the West Front. And the people who work here joke about you can always tell when it's summertime because you can smell the visitors. And what we mean by that Mr. President – they stand out there in the high humidity, heat, sweating, and it’s really – there’s no place for them to go.” Sen. Harry Reid's Floor remarks today.

Maybe they could set up a sprinkler and hose them down before they entered the confines?

Shea Stadium Should be Named Taxpayer Field

Finally, a voice of reason in the current milieu of vacuous intelligence that exists in the City Council thanks to the lone republicans.

The two councilmen, Vincent M. Ignizio and James S. Oddo, both of Staten Island, called on Tuesday for the stadium to be renamed Citi/Taxpayer Field. The two men will soon be the only Republicans on the 51-member Council. "Perhaps a name change is in order, since it will be the taxpayers of the country who will foot the bill for not only part of stadium, but for the company itself," Mr. Ignizio said. "The taxpayers are spending billions for this company to maintain its operations and deserve the recognition for their largess."

Mr. Oddo quipped: "Not naming the field after Jackie Robinson in the first place: mindless. Tom Seaver stepping onto the new mound for the first time: timeless. Actually acknowledging the contributions of the hardworking taxpayer: priceless."
