Weekly Wrap-Up

Today is Inauguration Day, and all Americans have reason to celebrate. The peaceful transfer of power is a time-honored American tradition, and “the inauguration is a picture of our Constitution, proof that we are a nation based on representation, not royalty.”

 

For me, it’s worth celebrating that our nation is no longer represented by Barack Obama – and that it’s not Hillary Clinton taking the oath of office.

What are you celebrating as we inaugurate a new President? That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll.  

Inauguration Day is a time for unity, but the press has declared war on President Trump and continues to level low blows against the Trump Administration. Investor’s Business Daily calls it “media malpractice,” and I agree.

President Trump's inauguration is being boycotted by about a third of congressional Democrats (including a shameful seven from New York) are boycotting President Trump’s inauguration – but what they’re really mad about is their own party’s collapse.

Obama ended his reign by letting a terrorist walk free – and shades of what happened here in New York with Andrew Cuomo’s commutation of Judith Clark’s sentence for her role in the deadly Brink’s robbery of 1981 that took the lives of two police officers and a guard.

What word do you think best describes Cuomo’s commutation decision? That’s the second question of the new Weekly Poll.  I can think of plenty – including a few words I won’t list here – so you have a lot to choose from.

Law-enforcement officials are outraged, as they should be, and as are many right-minded New Yorkers. 

The Conservative Party refuses to let the Cuomo commutation be the last word, which is why we’re leading a petition drive to rename the new Tappan Zee Bridge the “Brown Paige O’Grady” Bridge after Judith Clark’s victims. 

What do you think is the BEST reason to name the bridge after these three men? That’s the third and final question in our new Weekly Poll – and if you haven’t already, make sure you sign the petition here.

I’m happy to say our campaign is drawing extensive media coverage. Thank you for being part of the Conservative Party and making efforts like this possible. 

Have a great weekend!
