Welcome to Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap-Up for November 1, 2019.
NEW YORK CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS VOTE ‘YES’ ON IMPEACHMENT RESOLUTION
The Democratic Party’s Congressional Members from New York have failed the people, all of which have voted affirmatively on an impeachment resolution Thursday that advances the unprecedented witch hunt against President Donald Trump.
It is particularly shameful for Reps. Sean Maloney. Max Rose, Paul Tonko and Anthony Brandisi. These are legislators who advertised themselves as moderates to trick unsuspecting voters into putting them into office before stabbing their constituents in the back with this vote.
“My constituents want to judge things for themselves, and I support them. They want more information and public testimony,“ Brandisi said to justify his cowardly actions. “The only way to ensure this actually happens is to take the investigation into the public arena and shine a much-needed bright light.”
Congressman Max Rose said, “The President says he is innocent, so all we are saying is prove it.” It is shameful that Congressman Rose, an attorney, does not understand the basic American judicial plank that we are all innocent until proven guilty.
The behavior of these “moderate” Democrats shows that the entire party fold has radicalized without exception. Democratic Party policy is now dictated by the likes of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – the “Green New Deal” proponent who is striving for radical communism. The days of the JFK-style reasonable Democrat are long gone.
The resolution ultimately passed by a 232-196 margin, and brings the country one step closer to civil war as the Democrats will do anything in their power to oust President Trump before the 2020 presidential election.
GOV. ANDREW CUOMO’S LEMINGS BREAK THE LAW TO DEFEAT FUSION VOTING
It was discovered this week that Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hand-picked bureaucrats were in such a rush to destroy the practice of fusion voting that they did not even take their Oaths of Office before wielding power. The Party issued a press release on this major issue on Tuesday.
“Today we learned that his commissioners, including State Democratic Party boss Jay Jacobs, were so rushed to do Mr. Cuomo’s bidding that they failed to even take an Oath of Office, a strict requirement of New York State law. What an incredible waste of money: All of the commission’s previous votes, hearings, and activities have now been rendered null and void.”
“Andrew Cuomo’s commission to exact revenge on political foes is now officially a disaster. It’s been obvious since the commission was authorized by the state budget that this slapstick assemblage was all about Mr. Cuomo’s political grudges and nothing to do with public policy or sentiment,” I wrote in a Op-Ed printed in the NY Daily News also on Tuesday.
New York State GOP Chairman Nick Langworthy is echoing the concerns that I covered in my Op-Ed, and hammered Cuomo’s lawlessness and incompetence during a Public Finance Commission Hearing that took place earlier this week.
“This commission served no purpose other than to do the dishonest bidding of Governor Cuomo,” Langworthy said.
Public Finance Commissioner and state Democratic Party Chair Jay Jacobs confirmed to the New York Times this week that he will be using his power to destroy the fusion voting system that has given a voice to conservative and liberal activists to oppose the establishment political machine.
“I haven’t settled on any particular number yet,” he said. “What I do know is I am going to propose a dramatic increase in that threshold.”
“If we have a campaign finance program, it’s going to have to be able to pay for those candidates if they qualify and that’s what this is all about because the qualification levels now to become a minor party are way too low,” Jacobs added, completely unconcerned about pesky little things like the rule of law, political disenfranchisement, and the Oath of Office.
My Op-Ed strongly advised Cuomo to shut this bureaucracy down before he and other concerned interests, such as the left-wing Working Families Party, stop their unlawful measures in the courts.
I concluded with, “Mr. Cuomo should shut down this charade before it becomes even more embarrassing and stop interfering with state Election Law that is the express purview of the duly elected Legislature.”
ISIS LEADER AL-BAGHDADI ‘DIED LIKE A COWARD’ AFTER RAID BY U.S. FORCES
President Donald Trump celebrated the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi on Sunday, who blew himself up after his hideout in Syria was raided by U.S. forces.
“He died like a dog, he died like a coward,” Trump told the nation. Trump gave full credit to U.S. Forces who conducted the mission without any casualties.
“No personnel were lost in the operation, while a large number of Baghdadi’s fighters and companions were killed with him,” Trump said, before adding that the U.S. retrieved “highly sensitive” information related to ISIS.
“You are the very best anywhere in the world,” Trump said about the U.S. Forces who apprehended Baghdadi.
While President Trump’s “America First” policy has ISIS on the run, they still maintain their terror operation in a limited capacity. ISIS confirmed that Baghdadi had been killed, but have appointed a new leader to head up their Islamic extremist organization.
“The Shura Council met immediately after confirming the martyrdom of Sheik Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The leaders of the Mujahedeen agreed after consultation with their brethren and acting according to the will (of al-Baghdadi) they pledged allegiance to Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi as the new leader of the Believers,” new ISIS spokesman Abu Hamza al-Qurayshi said.
“So, don’t rejoice America for the death of Sheik al-Baghdadi,” the spokesman said. “Don’t you know America that the state (IS) today is at the doorstep of Europe and is in Central Africa? It is also expanding and remaining from east to west.”
While Americans may be happy that Baghdadi is gone, they will not be rejoicing until ISIS is finished for good. President Trump’s policies have helped to destroy the caliphate, but there is much more work that needs to be done before ISIS is wiped off the planet for good.
