Conservative Party Defeats Governor Cuomo and Public Finance Commission
Since day one, we’ve been saying the State Legislatures creating of a Public Finance Commission was an unconstitutional delegation of legislative authority. On Thursday, a Niagara Supreme Court judge agreed and ruled in our favor.
This is a big blow to the Governor who attempted to strip New Yorker’s of their right to vote for third parties, and reach further into the pockets of taxpayers through an unelected body of handpicked cronies.
“The Legislature established the commission and delegated to it the authority to create new law and to repeal existing law which is a function reserved solely to the Legislature under the constitution,” ruling Supreme Court Justice Ralph Boniello said. “The transgressions became final when the recommendations of the commission became law without further action by the Legislature,” he added.
This entire process was a total overreach by an overzealous Governor. This is a total victory for political freedom in New York, and a reminder to Governor Cuomo that he is an executive and not an emperor. Reason has won out over Machiavellianism, and New York State is better for it.
Joe Biden’s Big Primary Win
Vice President Joe Biden enjoyed another successful batch of primaries Tuesday as he clinched huge victories in Mississippi, Missouri, Michigan, and Idaho. Bernie Sanders was victorious in only North Dakota, vastly underperforming from his 2016 numbers. It is clear that Sander’s success in 2016 was a complete rejection of Hillary Clinton, and not the political revolution that he had suggested.
While it appears Socialist Bernie Sander’s path to the nomination is all but over, there are still many important questions to be answered, including the health of Vice President Biden.
It is fair to question whether Biden is fit to serve as President. We all recall the mainstream liberal media and never trumper’s questioning whether or not Donald Trump was fit to serve in office, and President Trump has since proven to be in outstanding physical health according to White House Doctors.
At 77 years old, Biden is four years older than Reagan was during his 1984 re-election campaign. If elected, Biden will be 78 years old when sworn in, older than Reagan on his last day as President.
Biden has contributed to our concern as American citizens, he has repeatedly misspoken, forgotten where he was, shown an extreme lack of patience, and recently, forgot the words of the Declaration of Independence, saying “All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.” He has also has declared himself a candidate for United States Senate, claimed he was arrested in South Africa for trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison, which his campaign admitted was not true, and most recently, was seen shuffling into his escort vehicle slowly and with the help of a staffer.
I do not find pleasure in watching the decline of Vice President Biden, but I am concerned that someone in cognitive decline is considered the Democratic front runner for President of the United States.
As you are all aware, the state of New York is taking preventative measures to prevent the spread of the virus. It is imperative we all take the necessary precautions, and maintain sanitary conditions so not to spread the sickness to our neighbors.
Nationally, President Trump has restricted travel from European nations and at 3pm today, will issue a National State of Emergency to release $40 billion in aid. The President restricted travel from China, where the virus originated, on February 4th.
As of this writing, there are 421 confirmed cases of the virus statewide, but that number is expected to grow as testing continues.
Contrary to reports, the New York City Subway system remains open, but I do expect more preventative measures to be taken to minimize the spread of the virus.
For those petitioning, I have been in regular contact with GOP leadership of the state Legislature to push for a reduction in petition signature requirements. I am very hopeful that in the near future we will hear that our request has been granted.
I ask you remain prudent, but do not panic. Wash your hands, make sure to be mindful of the most vulnerable age group, and maintain sanitary conditions at all times.
