Daily Update

New York Times:  Poll shows tight race for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.  You know Hillary is in real trouble when the NY Times has an article on how tight the race has become.  MSNBC is frenetic with this headline:  New polls serve as a wake-up call: Trump could win presidency. CNN tries to undermine the numbers, but facts do not lie: Trump is on the upswing and Hillary’s constant lies, damage-control, comments and secrecy are taking their toll.   Yesterday’s Michael Goodwin column is a must read. 

Betsy McCaughey opines on how to break the teacher protection racket. 

File this under:  Governor Andrew Cuomo is stalling...the question is why?

Governor Cuomo:  Five years in office and Syracuse, Buffalo and Rochester are among the NATIONS poorest cities.  They need jobs and a governor that makes New York business friendly by elimination the burdens on businesses instead of phony START-UP NY policies. Here is an analysis by the Empire Center on the August Jobs report

Here is a very strong reason to vote for our US Senate Candidate Wendy Long.  If Sen. Schumer can achieve his number one goal, the soul of America — everything that makes American the shinning beacon to the world — will be overruled by his progressive Supreme Court justices.  Here is Wendy Long’s statement on Sen. Schumer’s goal.

PRIMARY DAY

Today is Primary Day, be sure to have your voice heard.  Call your local Board of Elections, to find out if there is a primary where you live. 

Hillary let a campaign operative override Secret Service protocol to avoid going to an emergency room on Sunday.  Yes, you read that right, a campaign operative was directing where Hillary went.  The Washington Times writes about the concerns many democrats have about the Clinton instinct to conceal, and Rich Lowry opines on how the Clinton’s lies vindicate the Hillary haters.

No Show: Top Clinton Aide Who Set Up Hillary’s Private Server Refuses to Testify

Everyday Americans reject Hillary’s “basket of deplorable” label.  Here is Cal Thomas’s take on The Deplorables. 

What is going on at the Department of State?  Hillary used her influence to help the Clinton Foundation (and her family) and now the Daily Caller is reporting that John Kerry funneled millions to his daughter’s nonprofit.

Marc A. Thiessen opines in the Washington Post that Bill Clinton’s terrorism strategy led to 9/11. Hillary Clinton’s is the exact same thing.

Voter fraud is a concern, but letting the federal government oversee elections is a bigger concern.  The Daily Signal has a simple 3-step approach to defend voter ID laws.

Daily Update

Welcome to the political world of Hillary, where it is permissible to insult thousands of people as being in a basket of deplorables, but, you cannot question her without being vilified for doing so.  Of course, Hillary did try to walk it by saying maybe “half” was wrong.  Hillary does have a long history of doing her best to destroy her (and Bill’s) enemies.  The Hill writes The media elites feel that shiver up the spine — and it’s not victory.  Fredric U. Dicker writes that Clinton’s ‘basket of deplorables’ gaffe stuns both parties.  

Hillary damaged herself on Friday by using a broad brush to paint Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables”, which was minor compared to the video of her leaving the 911 Memorial early. As noted in many organizations — The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The NY Post, Fox News, TownHall — to name just a few, Hillary’s health problems are no longer what her campaign called a right-wing conspiracy .

Townhall.com writes about Donald J. Trump’s attendance at our 2016 reception.  So does Real Clear Politics.  While not believing Trump can win in New York, the New York Magazine gave him and us some ink.  (It will be interesting to see what he writes when Trump carries New York State.) 

Michael Barron wrote this for Saturday’s papers, before Hillary’s problems surfaced. 

The Conservative Party is truly concerned about Hillary’s health and the video that showed her not feeling well is quite disconcerting — obviously we do not support Hillary for president — however, we do sincerely hope that her health problems are minor and that forthwith she is honest in letting American’s citizens know if she is healthy enough to bear the stress of being president.

Daily Update

Our presidential nominee, Donald J. Trump, posted this last night after accepting our nomination.  We, the Conservative Party members, thank those who were at our 2016 Presidential Reception to help be a part of history.  If you were unable to attend, you can watch Mr. Trump’s acceptance speech here.  Here is Michael D’Onofrio’s article in the Journal News.  Here is how the Observer reported the event.  The LA Times interviewed Chairman Long. So was the Washington Post.  The media really doesn’t think a Trump win is possible, here is Newsmax’s article.  They said the same about Ronald Reagan in 1980 and he won New York state with the votes cast on the Conservative Line helping to make it possible.

In case you missed this yesterday.  So let me understand the AG, if you give to an organization that supports life and conservative values, he wants the organization to produce their donors, but foreign donations to theClinton Foundation it is okay?  Does anyone wonder why most Americans are fed up with elected officials???  AG Schneiderman has decided he is the ultimate voice on a question that has plagued New Yorker’s since Roe v Wade was “settled” by the US Supreme Court in 1971.  (It must be nice to be King Solomon.)

Daily Update

The Las Vegas Review Journal editorial headline nails Hillary!  EDITORIAL: Mrs. Clinton now plays dumb.  Here is just part of what they have to say about Hillary: “So now the seasoned stateswoman of media lore offers up the “I didn’t know what I was doing” defense. Instead of “smart” and “savvy,” the word “pathological” comes to mind.  “To the public, she claims to be a sharp professional who knows the score,” the Wall Street Journal opined over the weekend. “To the FBI, she presents herself as a clueless grandee who left the details to her minions.  Either way, she’s lying to someone. But that, of course, should come as no surprise.” 

How long will American citizens be fooled by this woman, or worse, not see a problem?   The National Review’s David French opines in his column,  Even if You Believe the Left’s Excuses, Hillary Clinton Still Violated Criminal Law,  “In other words, even if you believe the explanations and rationalizations of a known liar — as Drum apparently does — the undisputed, known facts still point to criminal wrongdoing. Hillary Clinton had classified information on her homebrew server. She sent it. She received it. She kept it. On this point, it doesn’t matter if she maintained that server for convenience or to evade FOIA. It doesn’t matter if records were wiped through a mistake or to evade a subpoena. Her behavior contains the elements of a federal crime, yet she is escaping prosecution entirely. It must feel good to be a Clinton.”

William McGurn, writes in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) that even worse than the revelations in Friday’s FBI dump (on a long holiday weekend, no less) is that “… when the American people finally learned about Mrs. Clinton’s use of private email for public business, it wasn’t because of a functioning civil service. It was because of a hacker.”

Weekly Wrap Up

Labor Day is here already which means two things; Summer is almost over and the citizens really start paying attention to the upcoming November Elections.  There are 68 days until we choose a new president and either continue the dismal Obama Administration or remember that our US Constitution is based on the fact that “We, the people…” control our government. 

This week our national debt reached $19.5 trillion dollars, in eight years, under Barack Obama, it has almost doubled.  Obama’s left-wing policies have created more debt in his eight years than the combined debt in the history of our nation.  Which of his policies have caused the most damage to hardworking Americans?  Let us know in his week’s poll questions.  Just as a reminder, the $19.5 trillion is only the federal debt, states and local debt add to the burden taxpayers shoulder. 

We learned this week how Bill and Hillary have used taxpayers money to support the Clinton Foundation.  Judicial Watch let us know that Huma Abedin was more than willing to help Doug Band — a Clinton Foundation executive — get DIPLOMATIC PASSPORTS through Clinton’s State Department

Hillary’s VP pick, Tim Kaine does not think sanctuary cities exist which shows just how out of touch Tim Kaine is. 

We also learned this week that the Obama Administration wants to nationalize our elections.  What could possibly go wrong with that idea — Obamacare is doing so well

Donald J. Trump had a very good week.  Charles Krauthammer thought Donald Trump dominated President Pena Nieto.   If you missed his speech on Immigration, you can read it here.  The editors at National Review called it “A Tough but Sensible Immigration Policy.”  Trump’s outreach to the minority vote is having positive results despite what the main stream media is reporting.  This brings me to our second and third poll questions, what do you think Mr. Trump has to work hardest on to win the White House and what should Trump focus on between now and November 8.

The Heritage Foundation explains that Harry Reid is all out to end Rule 22, the Senate rule that allows debates.  All the more reason to be certain that New York’s Charles Schumer never becomes the Senate Majority Leader. 

We have a special bonus question in this week’s poll — and I will personally deliver your response to Donald Trump at our September 7 reception that features Mr. Trump.  Be sure to answer our fourth question.

Have a safe and happy Labor Day Weekend!

 

 

Daily Update

Hillary’s week isn’t getting any better — first there is this:  Experts poke holes in Clinton Foundation’s promised donor ban, then there is this: Reuters is reporting that according to a think tank there were secret deals for Iran after the nuclear agreement, but the most damaging must read article today is in Politico:  Bill Clinton used tax dollars to subsidize foundation, private email server.  Without a doubt, Hillary and Bill are the most corrupt couple in US politics and actually make President Coriolanus Snow look good. 

Donald J. Trump is completing his best week yet,  The Washington Times says, Donald Trump: International Man of Diplomacy — yes, really.    This from Byron York: Mexico gamble a huge win for Trump.  From the NY Post editorial page:  Pivoting on immigration and Mexico: A good day for Trump.   BRYAN FISCHER, writes this in One News Now, Trump just won the White House

George F. Will opines on Team Obama’s bank-settlement cash grab is unconstitutional.  Imagine what could happen under a Hillary Administration….just another reason to make certain she does not become president.  The NY Post editorial headline states:  You can see right through Obama aide’s ‘transparency’ lies.  Again on this topic, imagine a Hillary Administration…she would probably jail reporters for reporting the truth.

A fresh reminder that the Clintons never play by the rules is the headline of a NY Post editorial.

And if all of the above isn’t enough reason, read Mark Thiessen opinion piece titled Where are the #NeverHillary Democrats?  Part of what he says is “Now they have a kleptocratic nominee who epitomizes everything they claim to oppose — and they seem to be completely fine with it.” Read the rest of the column here.

And then there is this:  “Clinton emailed classified information after leaving State Dept.”  Read the rest of Daniel Halper’s article here

One can’t help but wonder what will happen when Hillary answers the 25 question posed by Judicial Watch. Here are the 25 questions

With all of the above, it is no wonder that The Hill is reporting a tightening of the polls.  And that Hillary’s support among women is waning.

It is frightening to think that “other players” could hack and disrupt our election system.  It is even more dismaying to think the federal government is thinking about taking charge of our elections!  There is do doubt our election system has some problems.  Today’s Daily Signal has some solid ideas on how to address the issue of being hacked by “other players”.

Sen. Schumer —  who we all know loves the camera and creates news on “hot topics”  —  has been strangely silent on the EpiPen skyrocketing costs.  Now we know why thanks to our US Senate candidate Wendy Long who broke the story yesterday. 

Mayor de Blasio is so indebted to the Teacher’s Union, he is seeking to create PROSE schools.  Mr. Mayor, please put the children first — support and expand Charter Schools. 

Cuomo administration announces plan to overhaul medical marijuana after complaints that the original bill is too restrictive.  The camel will soon be totally inside the tent!  Most of what they want to do now will be done by the DOH;  afterproposing regulatory amendments that will be published in the state register next month,  Most alarming is that one of the proposals is to allow schools to administer medical marijuana.   Think about that for a minute — schools cannot give a student an asprin — but they want to allow schools to administer “medical marijuana.”  Also, just last month the DEA would not take marijuana of the Schedule 1 list because it has never been proven that marijuana has medicinal effects.  The unintended consequences of any changes will be immeasurable.

Daily Upadate

Taxi tycoon Evgeny Freidman owes $13M in taxes, NYC blasted for doing nothing about it is a headline in the Daily News.  Apparently he hasn’t paid the $.50 surcharged that is supposed to go to the MTA for years, but he still has his 900 medallions.  Add this to the list of why people do not trust government anymore. 

Stephen F. Hayes has an excellent piece in the Weekly Standard – Aiding and Abedin.  Well worth reading. 

Hillary told us all about the Alt-Right last week, now the New York Sun wants to know why Hillary won’t denounce the Alt-Left. 

The State Department — President Obama — is stalling and doing their best to “protect” Hillary, AGAIN!  Seven months after a federal judge ordered the State Department to begin releasing monthly batches of the detailed daily schedules showing meetings by Hillary Clinton during her time as secretary of state, the government told The Associated Press it won’t finish the job before Election Day.  What do they have to hide?

Rasmussen reports that most American’s favor America First foreign policy…and believe Obama doesn’t.

Constitution.Com has a video and article on Voter Fraud, a serious concern for all of us and one that could be curtailed quite a bit with a photo ID.  The Daily Signal reminds us of 7 things the government requires ID for.  If ID is required to those 7 items, why not for voting? 

FBI warns states that there is heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections.

The Wall Street Journal (subscription required) says the US may give up internet stewardship — giving control to the United Nations.   From WSJ “When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S. protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance, U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30”  Congress can stop the Obama plan…by continuing its ban on the Obama plan.  Do you want the UN to control the Internet?  This should be an issue that every Congressman can agree on getting passed and override a possible veto. 

Governor Cuomo has a strange definition of “ethic reform“.

Do you remember Bill Clinton saying this during his 1995 State of the Union Address?  I’m sure Hillary approved what he said then but if asked would say he never said that.  Hillary was quite critical of President Obama’s relationship with his financial backers, but, now bristles if anyone says there is a link between the Clinton Foundation and access to her.  Some areeven calling for the Clinton Foundation to be shutdown

National Review has a list of 15 questions Hillary should answer under oath

With all of the serious problems facing Hillary, it is a comical that we still have a sense of humor about the pickle she is in.  Of course, our sense of humor is what she is counting on, because the laugh will be on us should she become the leader of the free world.  Will the complicit media should the responsibility of giving us this ethically challenged woman because they are too afraid to properly vet her or worse really think she is capable due to their bias?

Hillary is not having a good week — Kathleen Parker opines in the Washington Post that “the coziness between State and the Clinton family charity exposes a troubling hubris…” among other equally eye-opening sentences in a decidedly left-of-center newspaper.  Read the rest of Ms. Parker’s column here.

David Keene opines in the Washington Times on a big slush fund for the Clinton Foundation.   Despite James Carville imprecise defense of the Foundation this morning, the Foundation does not have a stellar reputation as pointed out in Mr. Keene’s column…in fact, Charity Navigation had the Clinton Foundation on its watch list. 

How do your focus on your State Department priorities when the majority of you private meetings are with foundation donors?   Flashback:  Hillary said absolutely nothing she did at State was related with the foundation.

Huma Abedin was careless with material that needed to be burned.  That was careless, but, Huma’s working with her mother carries a much bigger concern
