Will He or Won't He?


No sooner than Carmelo Garcia's 'ethnic cleansing' lawsuit got the boot in Hudson County Superior Court--  it was back again!   Yep. 

According to last Tuesday's Jersey Journal: "Garcia's attorney, Louis Zayas, said his client plans to re-file the lawsuit in the next few weeks."

Wow!  

Zayas went on to say: ""We believe this issue will be cured in the next couple of weeks..."

"Cured"?  Is he adding a soundtrack?   

"Ethnic Cleansing The Musical"...  with his $1M+ Alicea award, Zayas can hire The Rockettes.

GA is not sure how one "cures" a charge of ethnic cleansing, leveled by a NJ. State Assemblyman (Carmelo Garcia) to a Mayor (Zimmer), her husband and a former HHA Commissioner who has since moved out-of-state.  According to Earwitnesses,  even Mr. Garcia's friends were embarrassed by it.

For anyone who has wondered where the mayor's call to "end divisive rhetoric" and stop using terms like "old guard" and "new guard" came from, look no further than Garcia's "ethnic cleansing" complaint:

Nuttier than a Snickers bar


Remember this lawsuit was entered in August 2013 preceding the November mayoral race.

Widely perceived as a combo of (1) distraction to embarrassing revelations that Garcia had worn a wire at his lunch meeting with the Mayor's hubby (2) a vendetta against the named HHA Commissioner and (3) political 'favor' to ally Ruben Ramos to amp up his base of support at the HHA, the lawsuit was designed to rock the political landscape.

It sure did.   Like a loud fart in a crowded elevator.

So, the specter of re-filing the lawsuit now, with Garcia an elected NJ State Assemblyman from the 33rd District is fascinating.

The typical Hudson County politically-motivated lawsuit, a SLAPP (the most common type is a civil suit for defamation) is usually withdrawn after its outlived its usefulness, which is to to censor, intimidate, and silence critics by burdening them with the cost of a legal defense until they abandon their criticism or opposition. 

This politically-motivated "ethnic cleansing" suit  has a different aim.  Plain and simple, it's an elaborate smear campaign using the Courts to label Reform as racist, ethnically intolerant.  What it hopes to accomplish is to discourage Reformers from volunteering for board positions with the threat they will end up in a lawsuit.  Once those who would effect Reform are out of government, the Carmelos, the Masons, the Russos and folks of their ilk 'own' Hoboken- again.

Look what happened to GA.   And Horsey.  And two dozen bloggers who simply exercised their right to open, free political discourse online.

So here's the Garcia-Mason message to Reform: Get involved, Get sued.  Unless you're on OUR side.

That's one reason why GA believes the Garcia suit may get re-filed. Because the rumblings about the two new Commissioners being "white" as evidence of Zimmer's alleged "ethnic and racial intolerance" which reared it's head way back in 2012, with political operatives posting this kind of rhetoric...



...continue on. 

HHA Chairman Rob Davis, an African American gentleman (an ally of Carmelo the  Ethnic Cleansing Claimer) was quoted telling Hudson County TV : "They're trying to oust the black man."

HuhThe HHA Board is an ethnically and racially diverse mix of Hispanics, African Americans and Honkeys.

That's the thing about propaganda, and SLAPP suits and ethnic cleansing lawsuits- they create their own set of facts.  Hopefully, our judges recognize crap-lawsuits, as did the one who threw out Garcia's Ethnic Cleansing lawsuit.

Well, a new judge, a new set of facts and... who knowsAngel Alicea is the new role model for frivolous lawsuit filers.  The bad guys can always find a local hack or a well-intentioned out-of-towner to litigate their garbage.

New Jersey is overdue for anti-SLAPP legislation.

    1. Thank God for Carmelo. I'm glad he's wasting his time filing a pointless lawsuit when he could be doing something like -- well, his job.

    2. I would think Carmelo Garcia and his lawyer know that their deseased case can never be cured and that they just refilled so the can perpetuate their race card play, so they can use it when Garcia goes to court to hold on to his two jobs.

      Never forget that Carmelo Garcia has played this game for years and made very good money doing it.

    1. That's great news. Word is he never showed up at committee meetings, barely showed up at regular meetings usually.to grandstand. He also.brought loons from the hha to harrass kids first. Like that woman who spit all over mitchell at hhs, and got escorted out by police when she tried to fight with mulholland at a boe meeting. He won't be missed.

  4. it's a typical pattern for them. Loudly blame others for what you are doing. I almost spit out my coffee when I heard Campos bring up "the fires". Yes, those fires caused many deaths and displaced many, many hispanics. that is true. But who profited from those fires? Who proposed, approved, built, sold and made money off the fires? Shameless deflection. works everytime. I have no doubt it will work again as they pitch their 20/20 plan. History repeating itself again. Only differnece this time is they are getting the people to kick themsleves out.

    1. Would you kindly explain your comment especially relating to "the fires" Inquiring minds would love to know…

    2. The fires was a dark, sad period in Hoboken history where many buildings were burned out in the middle of the night . This got rid of the low renter to make way for the high renter or many condo conversions. Many died and lots of money was made. Most of the dead and displaced were hispanic. Most of those making the money were not. Can't beleive Campos went there. No shame. No respect.

    3. We must also remember that when the FBI wanted to investigate "the fires" the old guard politicians who ran Hoboken at the time refused their help.
      No one was ever even arrested.

  5. So why would Campos bring "the fires" up and what does Reuben Ramos and Carmelo Garcia have to do with "the fires"?

    Sounds like blackmail… Why else does Chris Campos keep showing up?

    1. To dredge up those feelings of fear and anger and point them at the new commissioners. Make it seem like this new "ethnic cleansing" is a continuation of that old "ethnic cleansing". Crazy because Ruben, Carmelo and Chris have always been on the side of those benefiting from the after fire development. Money Money Money develpment and jobs $$$. Spin it around! They got theirs.

  6. Apparently Bob Davis sees the need to invoke the same race baiting and hate mongering tactics that Carmelo Garcia has used for years when the truth does not support his case.

  7. Mr. Garcia, why don't you do your job and install the generators that are sitting in the back of the HHA ground-level parking prone to severe flooding? As a civil servant what are you being paid for to sue the mayor or protect your tenants?
