Out of Touch and Out of Line
Democratic Senators Rachel May and Robert Jackson showed a complete disregard for the thousands of victims, their families, those we continue to lose today and the millions that were affected by the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Their cheap political imagery depicting an airplane flying into the twin towers was a truly sickening display of politics, one that has no place in New York or anywhere else.
Fortunately, many people noticed, held them accountable and forced them into a quick, cheap apology, though the damage was already done. Though they continued to show how out of touch they are with the real world as they gave poor excuses, such as they didn’t see the banner their staffs had produced before posing with it.
Regardless of party affiliation 9/11 imagery to push political agendas are despicable. While I’d like to say I believe they have learned their lesson, I have a suspicion their apology was made out of necessity not remorse. See our press release here.
Rep. Malliotakis Introduces Legislation Honoring James Buckley
On the 99th birthday of former Senator James Buckley, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis introduced H.R. 7034 to rename portions of the Gateway National Seashore located on Staten Island in his honor.
Buckley, who was elected to the United States Senate solely on the Conservative Party line, played a pivotal role in establishing the Gateway National Recreation area which is a large element within the National Park System.
On behalf of the Conservative Party we’d like to thank the Congresswoman, wish her success and offer our full support.

Remove Russia from the UN Security Council
Although, personally, I would much prefer to see the United States remove itself from the UN and send the organization packing, the reality is that stiff action needs to be taken in the form of removing Russia from permanent member status.
Russia has used its position to block what in theory is the most important role the UN is designed for—preventing war and genocide.
Permanent members can be removed by a 2/3 vote of the General Assembly. It is time to remove Putin and his hostile Russian regime and see where other UN member’s loyalty lie.
