Stavisky declares victory, sends Jung back to Jersey in shame

toystavisky

Senator Toby Stavisky has been reelected with 5,002 votes, 1,274 more than her opponent, S.J. Jung.

The people have spoken.

Incumbent state Senator Toby Stavisky has been reelected to state Senate in Queens by a landslide.

While there was some mild trepidation. it wasn’t until the last few weeks leading up to the election that pundits started taking S.J Jung as serious competition for the 15-year incumbent, still it wasn’t any dirt off of Stavisky’s shoulder.

The Senator was reelected by an astounding 55% of the vote, according to unofficial election results.

It was a tough, door-to-door campaign. Despite her opponent’s best efforts to conjure up fictitious roots in the district, Jung couldn’t distance himself from the anti-Semitic Support Network that fueled his campaign. The revelation had reportedly infuriated Toby’s base of Jewish voters who came out in record numbers to cast their ballots for their beloved Senator.

While it may seem like matching a candidate to the demographics of the district is the right thing to do, this race proves that ethnicity has no bearing on electability — or maybe Jung’s communication staff wasn’t doing their job, either way, he lost.

In the end, S.J. Jung will breathe a sigh of relief knowing he doesn’t have to pay the toll on the GW until it’s time to come back and run again.

AGAIN HE ORDERS… “A ONE WAY TICKET FROM NEW JERSEY”

Jersey

S.J. must love Chris Christie.

S.J Jung is a longtime Republican seeking office in SD 16 –a district where he has no roots  or community service because he’s lived in New Jersey.

So what’s the issue? Jung was only registered in NY since 2009, shortly after he moved here from Westwood, New Jersey. In that same year, he ran on the WFP line and lost to Democrat Yen Chou, so that didn’t work out, and rumor had it he moved back to New Jersey until the time was right to move back to NY to try and steal another seat.

Don’t believe us? Check out his buff card below:

But wait, it gets better. “Diversity is a virtue,” said Jung, according to his website. “As a member of the State Senate, I will continue to be a bridge-builder who reaches out to and works with diverse communities, while providing unifying leadership that brings people together.”

That’s pretty funny, Jung the “bridge-builder,” because the only bridge you are building is the one back home to New Jersey.

According to his website, “For the last twenty-six years, S.J. Jung has been a passionate advocate for the community (what community?), fighting for policies supporting the most vulnerable New Yorkers, including immigrants and working families, and building bridges with diverse communities to enhance racial and ethnic harmony.”

Twenty-six years? What a load of campaign nonsense! Lifelong residents of the district have never seen or heard from S.J Jung except when he flirts with a run for office or steals credit from the good work of the Minkwon Center .

And what’s this about “ethnic harmony” he’s trying to create? If you read our article yesterday, you’d know that’s simply not true. Jung is supported by an Anti-Semitic coalition that will piggyback their agenda vis-à-vis Jung’s “campaign consultants” directly into legislation.

In New Jersey, we expect to hear about corruption. It’s basically built into the system. They have 566 municipalities, the most per capita of any state. Local governments tax the citizens dry, while preserving the opportunities for graft that flow from operating redundant public services. The state legislature likes it this way and always has.

We have to ask why was this left out of his his bio?

Look, this community is not to be taken advantage of just to become the collateral damage in Jung’s lust for power. Or even worse, resemble New Jersey in any size, shape, or form.

No one here wants to be a pawn in this huge electoral scheme and we aren’t going to remove the only woman representing us in Senate just for some Johnny-come-lately.

S.J Jung to Kids: Ditch School for Me

sjjung_tl_2014_05_16_q_filesantucci_z

Hey kids, you can ditch school to help me get elected.

The S.J. Jung campaign tells kids and teachers it’s ok to play hookey to help him get elected.

It’s that time of year again and the kids are just getting back to school however, school isn’t that important when it comes to working for free to help someone get elected. See the story below.

[From The Post] A candidate for a Queens state Senate seat is teaching high- school students a strange civics lesson: It’s OK to skip school to help get him elected.

S.J. Jung’s campaign e-mailed students at top-rated Townsend Harris HS, saying the pol’s team would provide “an absence letter to excuse you from academic duties” if they agreed to volunteer to defeat Sen. Toby Stavisky in Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

“We are looking for an insane number of bodies to help, starting on Thursday, 9/4. I know that school also starts on the same day, but just remember that this is the last week of this campaign,” Jung staffer Wennie Chin wrote.

“I will gladly write an absence letter to excuse you from your academic duties.”

Chin wrote that teachers “will also be proud of our dedication towards S.J. and his candidacy — Mr. Scardino himself will be door knocking with us this weekend.”

This is the man who wants to replace the Chair of the Higher Education Committee? That’s some example he’s setting.

Meet Jung’s Anti-Semitic Support Network

sjjung_tl_2014_05_16_q_filesantucci_z

This is why we have to be mindful of a candidate beyond the palm cards. Beware of S. J Jung.

Did you ever wonder who’s really behind a campaign?

Campaigns hire the seediest people. Yes, seedy. Really seedy. In fact, whether their advice comes from convicts or consulting firms that blur the line between Super PACs and direct campaigning, some of these “consulting” characters really take the cake. Take for instance, Peter Brown, the chief advisor to S.J Jung, a candidate running for State Senate in Queens, who’s been working to prove that US government agents were responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

The BrownMiller Group, of which Peter Brown is a founding partner, led the effort to collect more than 53,000 signatures on petitions to force a city referendum requiring a new investigation into the collapse of the World Trade Center. But why?

The purpose of this referendum is to prove that US government agents, not Al Qaeda, was responsible for the destruction of 7 World Trade Center.

Now this guy is a major player on Jung’s payroll. As such, when announcing his candidacy, Jung bragged to the World Journal that the BrownMiller Group had joined his team and even told Korea Daily that Brown was advising Jung on political strategy. Oh, here we go.

But the devil is in the details, so follow the link. Although dubbed the “Highrise Safety Initiative,” the effort was funded by an organization called the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN).

According to NYS Board of Elections records, NYC CAN paid the BrownMiller Group $183,563 in five separate installments.

Ted Walters, NYC CAN’s Executive Director, said the ballot initiative was a way for conspiracy theories about the destruction of the World Trade Center to be “mainstreamed.” According to Walters, there “was a deliberate attempt on the part of FBI leadership to block” individuals “from finding out about the plot and preventing it.“ He also claimed “people in the government knew (about the attacks) and allowed it to happen…The collapse of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were all demolitions…The alleged hijackers did not have the expertise to pilot the planes.” Yea, right.

NYC CAN is supported by Anti-Semites & Anti-Israel Bigots. But it’s not Walters’ crazy claims which should alarm you, BrownMiller has networked with an anti-Semitic coalition to further CAN’s radical agenda. Walters personally promoted the referendum on a podcast hosted by an Anti-Israel conspiracy theorist who claimed Israeli rescue workers were stealing organs after the Haitian earthquake. In addition, a variety of anti-Semitic websites, including the Iranian state-owned news service, promoted donations to and support for NYC CAN’s referendum, where it was described as “the most important group working to change history” and prove that Israeli agents were responsible for the 9/11 attacks.

Support Network-6

The referendum was heavily promoted on anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, and conspiracy websites and news outlets that claim that Israel was behind 9/11. In other words, the strategist leading Jung’s candidacy is also working on a project that is helping to unite an anti-Semitic movement behind a crazy ballot referendum in New York.

Even though NYC CAN believes 9/11 was conducted by US Agents, none of this however stopped Jung from paying BrownMiller, and it likely won’t.

This begs the question, is it possible for the CAN coalition to lobby Jung through the BrownMiller Group? Or even directly to him? What would stop them? After all, there is a clear path to access. Will the ballot initiative sail through with a special legislative liaison advocating on its behalf, now or later? Of course it’s all possible. When a candidate is elected, they take all of their interests, their supporter’s interests, and especially their baggage with them into office. Why would Jung prove any different?

Meanwhile, The Anti-Defamation League called Jones “the Conspiracy King” and referred to him as “anti-Israel conspiracy theorist” in 2010 after his website promoted the claim that Israeli rescue workers in Haiti were involved in stealing organs.

Luckily, de Blasio thinks it’s all a joke, and for good reason. He said the NYC CAN ballot proposal was “absolutely ridiculous… And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”

This is dangerous. Still, the BrownMillerGroup has influence over Jung, and they always will. The question becomes how much influence does CAN have directly on Jung? [See the dotted line on the diagram to illustrate the point]. Is this a chance you’re willing to take? Don’t fret, there is a bright side: this potential influence won’t amount anything if Jung loses the election and moves back to New Jersey. But my oh my, wouldn’t it be nice to have a dear friend in office, a friend with legislative authority and a budget?

The district where Jung is running contains one of the fastest growing Jewish communities in New York City, along with the Kupferberg Holocaust Resource Center and approximately 20 synagogues. The district is also home to many police officers, firefighters, EMTs, and construction workers who responded to the disaster and helped in the recovery. Overall more than 250 Queens residents died on 9/11.

So think twice about casting your ballot for SJ Jung, things are not what they appear to be.

Messer Steps Aside, Focuses On Renewable Energy

John Messer, Queens Campaigner

Messer says Peace I’m out y’all

We have confirmation, the primary for SD16 will be a one-way race: Toby Stavisky vs. S.J Jung.

Defying speculation, in a press release sent this evening, attorney John Messer officially declared he will sit this one out for good.

“Renewable energies, like solar and wind power, have been important to me because they reduce our carbon footprint and help to protect our communities.”

Messer explained that his company, Invictus Energy Solutions, has been on the front lines reducing dependence on foreign oil and carbon-based fuels — a commitment he would to like to see through  to its completion.

“In an effort to improve our air quality, my company is in the process of implementing a significant project to replace these carbon based diesel generators with solar-powered alternatives which will run off the sun’s pure renewable energy. Queens shouldn’t be getting a failing grade for air pollution when every hour the sun beams enough energy onto our planet to satisfy our global energy needs for an entire year. Over the next several years, I want to work with you to bring renewable energies to our community, improve the quality of our air, our failing grade, and the overall health of our community.”

Meanwhile racial politics will still be in play, and in all likelihood Toby Stavisky will still be the victor. After all, she’s the most visible; a staple in the Flushing community and she has the proven ability to trounce her opponents, but like many districts, only a small percentage of the electorate actually show up for critical primaries – and those that do have proven over and over that they favor Toby Stavisky. So with Messer out, the “primary vote” will be safe for Senator Stavisky putting S.J in a perpetual uphill climb: registering new voters and pulling them out on election day, which is not as easy as it sounds epecially when voters doubt a challenger’s ability to trounce an incumbent of this magnitude. Furthermore, Stavisky also has enough clout in many sections of the Asian community to bridge the tribal nature of local politics, a bridge that may prove too long for S.J, even if he has some IDC help along the way.

No word on an endorsement yet.
