Brooklyn Conservatives, Republicans to Hold Joint Rally in Support of NYPD
This Saturday, July 11th, the Brooklyn Conservative Party and Brooklyn Republican Party will be holding a joint rally in support of the NYPD. We have seen similar rallies take place successfully all around the state, and this one will be no different as many seem eager to join. It is imperative we support our New York City Police Officers who are villainized every day by the Mayor and liberal City Council.
Last week, about 1,000 people gathered in Wantagh, Long Island, and Wednesday hundreds gathered outside of Staten Island’s 122 Precinct in solidarity with police.
Violent crimes have spiked dramatically throughout New York City this year. In the last 28 days alone, shooting victims are up 204% from this time last year. In that same time, murder victims are up 21.2%.
While these violent crimes continue to rise, the Mayor and City Council have responded by doing away with plain clothed anti-crime units and defunding the NYPD by $1 billion.
We hope you will be able to join us in Brooklyn at 11:00am this Saturday at the corner of 75th and 13th Ave.
Department of Health Investigates Themselves, Finds No Fault
It comes as no surprise that the New York State Department of Health found themselves blameless for the over 6,000 lives that were lost in New York nursing homes. Instead, they doubled down on defending their order, and unconscionably blamed nursing home staff for transmitting the virus to its residents.
New York Health Commissioner Howard Zucker said Monday that a memo issued by the agency on March 25 disallowing nursing homes from denying admission to residents based on a positive COVID-19 diagnosis was not to blame for the highest nursing home death toll in the country.
The Conservative Party has called for an independent investigation from day one, knowing New York State will do anything they can to cover their tracks. The facts are simple; thousands of New Yorker’s died in state nursing homes. Under no circumstance should infected patients have ever been admitted to these facilities and the state investigating themselves and finding no wrong doing is a slap in the face to all the families who lost a loved one.
I want to thank Congresswoman Elise Stefanik and all the elected officials who have stood up to the Governor and his attack dogs who have done nothing but bark nonsense in an effort to distract from the fact that his administration played a significant role in the deaths of countless New Yorkers.
We continue to call on U.S. Attorney General Barr to order an independent investigation.
Rep. Zeldin Calls on NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to Resign Before It’s Too Late
With about 18 months remaining on his final term as New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio has almost single handedly undone two decades worth of work that made New York City amongst the safest big cities in the country.
Crime has gone through the roof in 2020. Murder, shooting victims, shooting incidents, grand larceny and burglary are all up the last 28 days by at least 21.2%. Murder was up 50% last week alone compared to the same week in 2019. The recent spike correlated with the disbanding of the plain-clothes anti-crime NYPD unit which was responsible for many weapons and violent offender arrests.
Congressman Lee Zeldin has officially sounded the alarm nationally calling on the Mayor to be removed before New York City becomes unlivable.
“Homicides, shootings & other crimes continue spiking in NYC. Quality of life is taking a beating, cops are being thrown under the bus, & the radical left is in charge & destroying the city. DeBlasio must be removed immediately. The city won’t make it through the rest of his term” he said on twitter Wednesday.
The rise in crime is startling and I agree with the Congressman; New York City will be unrecognizable with 18 more months of Bill de Blasio.
