Mr. President, how is that 2024 run for reelection looking today?

Empire Center Experts React to the 2023 State of the State

Hochul wants more changes to bail laws, Democratic lawmakers reluctant.  As the column notes, Democratic lawmakers are reluctant to make changes to the bail reform legislation that went into effect in 2020; you could change their minds.  Contact your local legislator, both Assembly and Senate, and let them know crime is out of control and changes are absolutely necessary; while phone calls are okay, a written letter is better.  If you do not make your voice head, how will they know this is important to all New Yorkers.

Brooklyn-NY…“The New York State Conservative Party stands with Nassau County Republicans in calling on newly elected Rep. George Santos to resign. Mr. Santos’s profound use of mistruths as a candidate morally disqualifies him from serving in public office and exposes him to potential legal action, seriously compromising his ability to represent his constituents.

“It is my hope, and the hope of Nassau County Conservative Chairman Daniel M. Donovan, that Mr. Santos will voluntarily tender his resignation out of respect for the public and the institution to which he was elected under false pretenses. We are also hopeful that Mr. Santos will choose the redemptive path going forward. That begins, necessarily, with his resignation.”

New York ranks 3rd best state to raise a family.  When you read the article, you will find that last year WalletHub had NY in 2nd place; and this year 14th for education and childcare and 46th for socioeconomics.  With 14th for education and 46th in socioeconomics, It is any wonder that Population loss could put NY on track for further losses in Congress.

Fascinating:  I’m a video game developer but this technology to drop your energy bill $820 per year is no fantasy.  With the probability of fusion energy in just 10 years, one would hope that wind turbines, solar panels and other sources of clean energy would rethink their excessive push to replace fossil fuels.  When they are no longer necessary, where will they end up…your local landfills or…?

Biden intends to visit the southern border…if he does, will it change anything?

Biden Tells Supreme Court Veterans Law Gives Him ‘Clear Authorization’ To Cancel Student Debt; Seriously? Biden is living in his own little world thinking he is a folk hero by giving away OUR money.

It’s Biden who doesn’t care about migrants — or NY’s lack of ‘room at the inn’.  No one cared about the border towns being overrun with illegals, but now they understand better what has been going on since Biden opened the flood gates. The people coming into our country are beholden to the cartels helping them and our citizens are paying far too high a price. Housing, schools, medical care simply cannot absorb the ever increasing numbers flooding America. America has always and still is a country that welcomes immigrants; the difference now is that those flooding the border towns, no longer respect the rule of law. Ask us if we have the means to help you; don’t demand/assume that we adjust to your needs.

Biden Reveals New Plan to Finally Address Raging Border Crisis. At this point here is the only plan that is guaranteed to work Mr. President:  Build. The. Wall.

Biden says he intends to visit southern border on Mexico trip  It simply amazes me that Biden calls for the end of finger pointing, them blames Republicans. For a person who has been an elected official since 1973, has he not learned how to negotiate?

If moderates don’t rally behind Gov. Hochul and her chief judge pick, the hard left will rule the state; the unfortunate reality is that the moderates are afraid to be primaried, so they will fall in line and the hard left will get its way.

NY state Democrats pack key panel to sink Gov. Hochul’s top-judge pick Hector LaSalle; if the democrats “stack the panel” it proves that one party rule in New York (or any locality) has no or little regard for governing; they want what they want and they will do whatever it takes. Governor Hochul should have vetoed the pay raise bill to prove 1) she has a backbone and 2) is willing to fight for what she thinks is best for New Yorkers.

These two articles, (from Empire Center) NY lawmakers want to be nation’s highest-paid and the (New York Post) Albany Dems introduce bill to raise legislative pay before likely special session this week shine the light on the absolute arrogance of the democratic “leadership” in New York State.  If they had an iota of a backbone, this would have been announced prior to the elections, but they don’t.  Nor do they have any empathy for the taxpayers who pay their salaries and are currently trying to make their own salaries (average salary in NYS according to ZipRecruiter is $51,453 for full time work) cover the inflation experienced this year.  $142,000 for a part time job is ludicrous; making it full time is also ludicrous, as the idea of the legislative body was to have part time legislators working in other jobs, to understand the impact of the legislation they passed.  This is a perfect example of how the government has (and continues) to run amok.

Biden Immigration Narrative Debunked Again by Massive Border Bust

Eric Adams seeks $1B from Biden as NYC migrant crush swells to 30K.  “Mayor Eric Adams has asked the federal government for $1 billion to handle the crush of migrants who’ve surged into the Big Apple this year — but the cost was calculated when the population was far less than it is now and before a judge decided to open the floodgates at the southern border, The Post has learned.”  We all understand the cost that NYC is hammered with by the crush of migrants; however, does anyone consider the cost that has been placed on the southern border towns…ever since Biden took office?  Do they care??  Certainly, the Biden Administration doesn’t care…unless they are bussed to Martha’s Vineyard.  President Joe Biden has made a mockery of our immigration laws; it is his legacy and a very discouraging one at that.  The fact that the President of the United States of America does not respect the law, is disgraceful, especially knowing how many lives have been sacrificed to keep America the greatest nation ever created.  The financial burden being placed on our citizens is appalling.

The Biden Administration just keeps issuing invitations to migrants to cross the border…with you footing the bill.

Massive Weekend Migrant Caravan Overwhelms Texas Border Town; and it is only going to get worse. Does Biden even watch the news to know what is happening? Does he even care about how the towns cannot absorb the influx of people in need? No need to answer, if he did, he would go see for himself.  And then there is the amount of drugs being smuggled into our country that creates another serious problem: Fentanyl and a stronger form of meth now driving American homeless crisis.  Here is another invitation to keep migrants coming using your tax dollars:  HHS approves Washington state request to offer health insurance to illegal immigrants, citing ‘health equity’.  And we know it won’t be limited to just Washington state.

James E. Hanley, reports in Empire Center: The Market Can Drive Electric Vehicle Sales.  It’s summary: it appears that the market will work in meeting the state’s long-term climate goals, insofar as light-duty vehicles are concerned, and will do so without imposing costly mandates on individuals who cannot afford them.  That’s why it should be allowed to work without interference and the state should repeal its 2035 zero-emission vehicle mandate.

Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Attorney General James Controversy 

Contact: Bill O’Reilly, 212-396-9117
December 8, 2022

Brooklyn, NY – “How Attorney General Letitia James thought she had the right to cover up sexual harassment allegations within in her office until after the November 8 election is beyond the comprehension of anyone who wants clean and accountable government in New York.

“Of all the public officials in New York State, Attorney General James should know best that self-monitoring a scandal within her own office is unacceptable.

“Governor Hochul’s refusal to act on this matter is equally unacceptable.  She must immediately appoint an independent investigator to determine what went on under the Attorney General’s nose.”
