Welcome to Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap-Up for Oct. 25, 2019.


 Let me begin this week’s wrap up with a very sincere thank you to all who attended our 2019 Fall Reception held last night in Manhattan.  The Conservative Party exists because you make it possible with your financial support.

Those in attendance had the opportunity to hear from a republican rising star: Lt. Gov. Jeannette Nuñez, who gave a rousing speech that certainly invigorated the already energized crowd.  Lt. Gov. Nuñez, whose husband is a native New Yorker, relates to the problems we have with our Mayor being tone deaf, when she recalled how he praised Che Guevara in Miami (a strong hold of Cubans who escaped from the Cuban Revolution) while campaigning for president.  Her genuine warmth and connection with those present explains why her star is rising.

I was especially happy to see Chairman Emeritus Mike Long along with Governor George E. Pataki who also wowed the crowd.  You know he made a difference in New York when two of the bartenders’ present asked to have their picture taken with him.  They were so excited when Gov. Pataki stood with them while many recorded the moment.

Every Conservative Party event is distinct, last night continued the tradition with Lt. Gov. Jeannette Nuñez and Governor George E. Pataki, Chairman Emeritus Mike Long, the many elected officials who traveled from near and far and most of all to those who make it possible for us to continue our work.


The hammer might be getting ready to fall on the government officials who have waged a coup against President Donald Trump, as Attorney General William Barr has announced that a criminal investigation regarding the origins of the Russian collusion investigation is underway.

U.S. Attorney John Durham has led the probe into the origins of the Russian collusion investigation, and it was revealed yesterday that the probe has become a criminal investigation. This suggests that evidence has been found that serious wrongdoing was committed by federal officials as they attempted to railroad President Trump and undo the results of the 2016 presidential election.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz will be releasing a report on the FBI’s surveillance on Trump in the near future that is likely to show evidence of serious criminal acts. Democratic Party leaders, who have promulgated a scandal regarding Trump and Ukraine out of whole cloth in recent weeks, are already crying foul as they worry about the bombshell revelations that may emerge.

“These reports, if true, raise profound new concerns that the Department of Justice under AG Barr has lost its independence and become a vehicle for President Trump’s political revenge,” House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) and House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said in a joint statement.

“If the Department of Justice may be used as a tool of political retribution, or to help the President with a political narrative for the next election, the rule of law will suffer new and irreparable damage,” they added.

After replacing  Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, Barr is showing what can be accomplished with a man willing to use his power to fight back against institutional corruption.


Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s bureaucratic incompetence bubbled to the surface yet again this week, as a gas shortage and road funding woes have put the Democrat’s mismanagement on full display.

N.Y.S. Thruway Authority Executive Director Matthew Driscoll shared the news about a stretch of highway that is in total disrepair in a letter addressed to the Seneca Nation on Monday.

“Work also continues on a detailed engineering design report which I will share with you in the coming weeks, but in the interim, it has become abundantly clear from an engineering perspective that the underlying concrete base is in far worse condition than we had anticipated,” Driscoll explained.

Cuomo, of course, passed the buck and blamed the Seneca Nation for the delays on the N.Y.S Thruway. Unfortunately for New York residents, they will inevitably have to pay higher tolls to pay for Cuomo’s poor leadership.

He also weaved some ridiculous conspiracy theories in a letter addressed to Public Service Commission John Rhodes in order to shift the blame regarding a Long Island natural gas shortage as well.

“The fact that National Grid has consumers in a position whereby National Grid gets what it wants or consumers are punished is unconscionable. A utility does not have license to harm customers because it believes it has an irrevocable franchise and is immune from effective regulatory oversight. I will not allow that situation to continue,” Cuomo wrote.

However, the gas shortage is happening because one of Cuomo’s agencies blocked a key pipeline over phony environmental concerns. Cuomo’s unwillingness to take any accountability for the decisions made under his own regime show why his popularity ratings are beginning to fall among New Yorkers fed up with the aggressive nanny stater.
