True to form, Governor Cuomo cannot accept the fact that NY’s budget deficit began long before COVID-19, and closing businesses in NY, made it worse.

Biden has fought a pandemic before. It did not go smoothly.

It is discouraging to be reminded, once again, that the US Senate Minority Leader is anything but a leader.  New York’s own Senior Senator, Charles Schumer, said today that he will not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett.  Isn’t a leader supposed to have an open mind, look at all possibilities and then decide.  When a leader refuses to do so, because he believes that the “nominee of such an illegitimate process and one who is determined to get rid of the Affordable Care Act” (without any knowledge that she would) he shows the world that his mind is closed and making political points with his base is all that matters to him.

Following lock step with his minority leader, Sen. Cory Johnson, that he wants to know if the future Justice would recuse herself from any election issues.  When did leadership become redefined to mean:  pander to your base?

Charles Hurt opines in the Washington Times that the Democrats can’t smear Amy Coney Barrett.

William McGurn writing in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) points out how the mainstream media handle the Catholic Faith of former VP Biden and current Judge Amy Coney Barrett.   Two Catholics, One Double Standard.

This is from the Washington Free Beacon:  Dems Love Biden’s Catholicism But Fear Barrett’s

Then there is this double standard on paying taxes:  Biden Dodged $500K In Taxes By Exploiting Loophole.  Since this is breaking news today, the former VP did this:  Biden releases 2019 tax returns before debate, calls for Trump to release his.  Hasn’t Biden learned through the years, that offense play is better than defense?

Ryan Ellis writes in the Federalist that New York Times’ Trump Tax Return ‘Bombshell’ Is A Joke.

Melissa Mackenzie, publisher of the American Spectator, has a lively political analysis (as an aside, she also has a food interlude on the best way to cook a steak) of Biden, Harris, and Barrett.

Mr. former VP, here is a reminder that Progressives will call you out if you are not completely loyal: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard irks left after citing Project Veritas in call to ban ballot harvesting.  (They may preach they have a “big tent” but the reality is they do not.)  David Hogg, the darling of the left, learned this yesterday when they turned on him.  Since he craves the attention of his 1 million followers, he quickly apologized for having an independent thought.

Rand Paul Isn’t Buying Fauci’s Tale of NY COVID Success.

A leopard cannot change his spots and apparently Gov. Cuomo cannot accept any fault when things go wrong.  New York had a budget deficit long before COVID-19 ran rampant and closing-down New York certainly helped the fiscal crisis. Gov. Andrew Cuomo said this Monday:  No state budgetary decision can prevent an economic downturn, before asserting the federal government is liable for New York’s estimated two-year $50 billion deficit due to the coronavirus pandemic.  Governor, take the advice given in yesterday’s NY Post editorial:  take a week off.  (Perhaps you need more than a week…?)  Have the professionals focus on fixing the problems you have allowed to become almost impossible to fix and even more difficult due to the closing down of New York state.  In other words, get back to doing what is right for all New Yorkers.

Will the Emperor close areas in NYS again?

Usually when a candidate will not answer a question, it is because they do not want you to know their answer will be one that is not supported by their constituents.  Former VP Biden, who believes he should replace President Trump, still refuses to say if he supports court packing.  By not saying he doesn’t support court packing, we know he does.  Keep up the good work, Joe.  This also gives Americas insight on what kind of president you would make…and it doesn’t paint a pretty picture either.  Another gaffe or outright misrepresentation?  We can’t help but wonder how much discussion will take place on these issues during the debate tomorrow night.

What is going on with the democrats and the leaders of their Party lately?  A few examples:  Ocasio-Cortez’s Snub of Rabin Event Is Harbinger of Democrats; former astronaut Mark Kelly, running for US Senate in Arizona, has some very strong financial ties to the Chinese government; and Miranda Divine tells us that Project Veritas uncovers ‘ballot harvesting fraud’ in Minnesota…one would think that Rep. Ilhan Omar would respect her adopted country instead of trying to turn it into a replica of the country her family left.

In case you missed Dennis Prager’s column, The Left’s Moral Compass Isn’t Broken, the last sentence sums up the left accurately.

A prime example why you should register and VOTE in person:  Queens voters are wrongly receiving mail-in ballots marked for military use.

One of the best NY Post editorials written to date:  Andrew Cuomo has gone loco on crime and vaccines.

New York deserves better than this:  New York’s post-COVID job losses outpace all but one other state.  However, the Emperor of NY, continues his total control of what we can and can not do, his obsession to “help” is only driving the economy, loss of tax income, deep into unchartered territory that will take years, if not decades, to recover from and force our youth to places more conducive to starting businesses and raising families.  One small step to help our great state is to take back the NYS Senate on November 3, elect as many conservative/republican Assembly Members as possible and send conservative endorsed congressional candidates to Washington, DC while re-electing President Trump who understands how to get the economy back to solid growth.

CHAIRMAN KASSAR’S WEEKLY WRAP-UP DISCUSSES THE US SUPREME COURT OPENING, AOC’S PLAN TO TAKE OVER THE NYC COUNCIL, A REAL-LIFE HERO, GOV. CUOMO’S “CLINICAL ADVISORY TASK FORCE” AND THE CANDIDATE SPOTLIGHT SHINES ON ALEXIS WEIK AND LIZ JOY.

President Trump to Nominate Supreme Court Justice Saturday

 President Donald Trump has announced he will move to fill the vacancy in the Supreme Court in 2020.

The President has a constitutional and moral obligation to fill the seat. Frankly, a potential 4-4 deadlock on a ruling in the Supreme Court is not something we should risk. Since 1869 the number of Justices has been set at nine and we must ensure the highest court in the land continues to operate the way it was intended to.

It is imperative a conservative voice is added to the Supreme Court to ensure fairness, common sense, and prevent a far-left radical Justice the left would surely nominate.

It has become clear the votes are there in the United States Senate to confirm a new Justice. The President was elected nearly 4 years ago by voters who wanted to put him in charge of nominations for the Supreme Court. It is his duty as Commander in Chief to fulfill his obligation and protect the integrity of the Constitution.

AOC Promoting Full NYC Socialist Agenda

Democratic Socialists of America-NYC chapter will be looking to run and support a slate of City Council candidates who would create a “socialist caucus” in the New York City Council.

The already Democratic controlled council will see 35 new members in 2021 running to fill term limited seats. Only 16 of the current members are eligible to run for re-election and a far left of left push is being made to pack the Council with self-proclaimed socialists.

Recently, in a gross display of anti-Semitism, the DSA asked potential candidates on their questionnaire if they would pledge to not visit Israel.

The DSA has also pledged to:

  • “Confront Gov. Andrew Cuomo and push the state Legislature to tax the rich to help fund the Green New Deal and New York Health Act, legislation that would create a government-run, single-payer health insurance system and to prevent state cuts in public services. “In the face of an austerity budget, many of our campaigns will lend their weight to a demand on the state government to tax the rich, putting us directly in the cross hairs of Andrew Cuomo. We welcome his hatred. Remaining resolute now is the time to expand the public sector, to provide social housing, public power [energy/utility supplier].”
  • “Use the COVID-related housing crisis to “cancel” rent, thus squeezing landlords of revenue and forcing them to give up their properties and “exit the market” — and have the state acquire the properties and convert them to public housing. Its housing agenda also includes “undermining” the real estate industry’s already diminished clout in the Democrat-run state Legislature.”

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has become the face of this movement, a movement that NYC cannot afford. Their first move will surely be to defund the NYPD to the level of a small-town police department, if not abolish the police all together. They will chase taxpayers out of New York City, leaving a higher burden to the middle class. New York will most certainly become one of the most dangerous big cities in America.

The DSA threat is a threat we should take seriously in NYC in 2021. The future of our families and our city hinges on 35 City Council seats.

More Than A Candidate

New York State Assembly Candidate Lawrence Chiulli (@Lawrence4Ny) was in the right place at the right time.

Just weeks ago, a young boy found himself in a horrifying situation as he held on for his life on the side of a Hudson Valley cliff in Westchester.

A 10-year-old boy was hiking with members of his family when he got separated from them. In a panic, and a stroke of luck, the family came across Chiulli who searched for the boy.

Chiulli, a former Eagle Scout, found him clinging on to the side of Bear Mountain in a treacherous position and growing weak from hanging on for so long.

Lawrence was able to maneuver down the steep mountain side and grab onto the boy, helping him reposition until help could arrive.

I would like to commend Lawrence for his bravery and willingness to spring into action without hesitation. His selflessness, quick thinking and bravery preserved a young life.

Quick Piece of Importance

NY state to review any Trump-authorized COVID vaccine for ‘safety’ before use: Cuomo.  This says the man who sent COVID-19 patients back to nursing homes knowing full well that it would spread like fire through dry grass.  New Yorkers deserve a Governor that puts the health of her citizens first and not one that puts politics first.  Creating a new “Clinical Advisory Task Force” can lead to delays in getting a critical vaccine to those who need it; while no one is being mandated to have the vaccine.

Candidate Spotlight Alexis Weik

Growing up in Ronkonkoma and Oakdale, and currently residing in Sayville, Alexis has stayed true to her roots. A wife and mother of three, Alexis knows the true sacrifice our law enforcement officers make each and every day, experiencing it firsthand through her husband and oldest son who are in law enforcement.

Active in many local civic and educational groups in addition to being the elected Islip Receiver of Taxes, Alexis is a fighter and our choice in New York’s 3rd Senate District to oust far left liberal and Governor Cuomo loyalist Monica Martinez.

We cannot afford a Democratic controlled State Senate. In less than 2 years, they’ve given us disastrous bail reform, they’ve released multiple convicted cop killers and have promised to raise taxes.

We need common sense representation that will make New York an easier, safer place to live and raise a family.

Contact Alexis here.

Candidate spotlight Liz Joy

A devoted wife and mother to four adult children, Liz is an advocate and fighter for our constitutional freedoms. Liz will not be absent from her district, nor afraid to do the work on behalf of the constituents in New York’s 20th Congressional District.

Liz is no stranger to a fight, in the fall of 2018, she single-handedly fought off knife yielding man intent on doing fatal harm. After engaging in hand-to-hand combat, she was able to call for help, undoubtedly saving the life of at least one person.

Strong on the right to life, the southern border, jobs, and the economy, Liz will represent NY20 with humility and grace, and an open heart, always remembering the congressional seat belongs to the people of her district, not the representative.

You can visit her website here to learn more, get involved or donate!

If my memory serves me right, every year we see headlines like this:  DiNapoli: New York paid over $700M in improper Medicaid benefits.  When will this incompetence end?  If Medicaid was a private corporation, does anyone think it would continue?  Yet the Democrats want government to be in control of health care.  Simply mindboggling!

From National Review:  Will Biden’s Delaware Become Biden’s America?  “I’m a young Delawarean who didn’t get to experience life with duPont, General Motors, or the banking boom, but I come from a multi-generation family of Delawareans who remember when this was the place to be. In my 24 years here, I’ve seen enough to know that we don’t want the rest of America to resemble the current First State.”

Senate Report Details Hunter Biden’s Extensive Foreign Business Dealings — and Obama Officials’ Efforts to Ignore Them.   (Is there any wonder why so many people do not want to be involved in the political world…it breaks my heart that the good people of this nation think all of politics is about the dark side when there far more people in politics that really look out for everyone, follow the US Constitution and are willing to do what is right for the nation and not themselves.) Even with the mainstream media helping to bury some of the bad news,  This Detail in the Hunter Biden Report Again Exposes the Media’s Insane Double Standard, it can’t when many understand they (the press)  have an agenda.     Here is more from the dark side that the mainstream media tries ignore.

Desperate to appeal to their base but really to hold on to power, House Democrats roll out anti-corruption package aimed at curbing presidential powers.  (“Mr. Schiff, though, was optimistic that their reforms would gain bipartisan support if Joseph R. Biden, the Democratic nominee, wins in November.  He really lives on his own planet in his own little world.)  Speaker Pelosi must live on the same planet, why else would the Speaker of the House revert to this?

Was there ever any real question that he would?

Words of wisdom from Walter E. Williams.

Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, seven weeks from today, voters will decide what your future holds; empty localities or the bright future New Yorkers have always been willing to work for.

Message to Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio: it isn’t the weather that is driving New Yorkers to move, it is the policies you endorse that is producing the exodus from New York.  People that are fleeing are seeking localities that uphold and enforce laws that protect their citizens.  New York’s political leaders must wake up.  When New Yorkers see this headline, they question why they would stay in a city/state that is not committed to protecting them.  Of course, people who do not have the opportunity to move, must make their voices heard on election day, November 3, 2020.  If you have been silent and not voting in the past, take an active roll this year.  Not registered to vote?  Click here to register, then follow up that your registration is valid. (If you must, you can apply for an absentee ballot here, but voting in person is the only way to be certain your vote is counted.)   Voting on the Conservative Party line sends a strong message – that you are fed up with the direction this socialist movement is heading – and you want leaders that will stand up to the bullies demanding utopia at your expense.  Enough is enough; vote in person on November 3, 2020.

The NY Post editorial says it all; now it is up to you.  Wake up, New York — or the Democratic socialists really will take over.

This is written by the democratic candidate (who won the June 23 Primary) for the 25th State Senate District, who will win on Nov. 3, 2020 because, unfortunately, the district is so democrat heavy, it is understandable that no one stepped up to the plate to run on the Republican or Conservative Lines. This is a big part of the problem that New Yorkers face.  Why is this policy a problem?  Read this.   He won the Democratic primary with 33,510 votes (the runner up had 20,229 and the total number of votes cast in the primary was 61,118.)  There are 257,080 registered voters in the district and quite frankly, the 33,510 votes that drove him to victory on June 23 are the ones who decided who would represent the 351,552 people who live in the district.  As the NY Post editorial above states:  Wake up, New York – or the Democratic socialists really will take over.

Today’s Riots Comparable to ‘Late Stage’ Violence of ’60s, ’70s, however, we survived and revived the American spirit then; and we can again, despite the current bleak outlook.  Our voices must be heard on election day; part of the difference between then and now is that many of the elected officials of today are the some of those who were part of the violence of the ‘60s and ‘70s who look the other way, many are professors in our colleges who have revised history to their liking and far too many do not take the time to vote.  Make your voice heard on November 3, 2020.   Wake up, New York – or the Democratic socialists really will take over.

Michael Benjamin writes in the NY Post:  New York’s Democratic socialists want a revolution — but does anyone else?  His next-to-last sentence may very well be the key to our future.  Wake up, New York – or the Democratic socialists really will take over.

Gov. Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio are not happy about the Big Apple’s new title…

The late breaking news on Friday evening was the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that has set off an intensive political firestorm.  Here are 7 Things to Know About Upcoming Supreme Court Process, Picks.  The Hill writes about names to watch as Trump picks Ginsburg replacement on Supreme Court.

Speaker Pelosi is on a power campaign; the Speaker no longer represent what is legal according to the US Constitution when outlining what her plans are.  Pelosi doesn’t rule out impeachment to delay Trump’s Supreme Court pick.  Perhaps Speaker Pelosi needs a refresher course in anti-bullying…and the US Constitution.

Sen. Schumer teamed up with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez  to issue a “fervent plea” that the seat remains vacant until after election day.  (One knows Sen. Schumer doesn’t share the microphone often, especially with a person who could primary him, so he is desperate to enhance his voice.)  Their bullying was a little more subtle than the Speaker.  (Interesting how AOC – there is no going back to brunch –  stood with Sen. Schumer and not Speaker Pelosi.)

More bullying from another NY Congressman, Jerry Nadler, who has overstayed his welcome in Congress.  Term limits, when enacted, with your help, will force them out of office before their lust for power undermines the balance of power the US Constitution envisioned.

Pelosi, Schumer, Ocasio-Cortez, Nadler and both Clintons should remember what Justice Ginsburg said in 2016:  Ginsburg said Senate should hold SCOTUS confirmation hearing during election year.  Stop the politics and get down to doing the work you were elected to do.

Michael Goodwin explains why the country needs a filled Supreme Court for the 2020 election.

Is there any wonder why most honest political people are worried about the 2020 elections?  ‘Not a big deal’: Noncitizens who voted illegally in 2016 still on voter rolls.  We ask the question again, why is it that the Democrats refuse to let provide more safeguards when casting one’s vote?  Only United States citizens, should be casting a vote as to whom will represent them…at any level.  And then there is this:  California Wants Me to Vote, Even Though I Haven’t Lived There for Over 8 Years.

This is the legacy of Governor Andrew Cuomo and a Legislature totally controlled by the new progressive democratic party:  Fewer witnesses to NYC crimes are coming forward — leading to mayhem and murder.

And it may get even worse, if Congresswoman Alexandrea Ocasio-Cortez has her way:  AOC-backed socialists have a plan to take over New York City.

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap-up discusses the 1776 Commission, the historic Abraham Accords and shines our candidate spotlight on Angi Renna and Sue Serino.

President Trump Announces 1776 Commission

Patriotic education is on the way in response to the democrats pushing their “1619 Project” which aims to educate students through indoctrination from liberal teachers and professors.

“I will soon sign an executive order establishing a national commission to promote patriotic education. It will be called the ‘1776 Commission’,” Trump said Thursday. The commission will encourage our educators to teach your children about the miracle of American history and make plans to honor the 250th anniversary of our founding in the year 2026 said President Trump.

At a time when our students are being educated by far-left liberals, being taught a revisionist version of history, being stripped of learning about where we have come from, how far we have gone, and promoting disdain for our country, this is very welcomed news from the President and his administration.

An accurate, truthful education should not be political and I look forward to this program being put into action. We, like every other country in the world, have come a long way. We must not strip students of an accurate education and allow them to form their own opinions without bias.

Trump Administration Celebrates Abraham Accords

 On Tuesday the President was joined by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in what was a historic day for the four nations as they signed the Abraham Accords officially formalizing relations between Israel and the two Arab states in a deal brokered by the United States.

This is another massive foreign policy win for President Trump and he hinted they weren’t done bringing other nations to the table and plan to normalize relations with “at least five or six” other nations.

Months leading up to his election and in the years since he became President, we have heard from the Democrats on countless occasions on how America and our interests wouldn’t be safe under a President Donald Trump. Well, we have learned that couldn’t be further from the truth as his administration continues to broker peace deal after peace deal, withdraw troops from endless wars and promote peace through power all over the world.

The facts are this, the world is a safer place than it was four years ago and this President has earned a second term.

Candidate Spotlight

This week I am happy to spotlight two candidates who will be instrumental to our success this November.

Angi Renna is the Conservative/Republican candidate in New York States 50th Senate District. Angi comes from the financial planning world and specializes in helping those on the verge of retiring and seniors plan their financial futures.

The 50th District has been represented by a Conservative since 2003. Now, Angi Renna looks to fill the vacant seat, but faces a stiff challenge from far-left liberal John Mannion. Mr. Mannion makes no attempt to hide the fact that he will join in lock step with NYC liberal Senators who love writing taxpayer funded blank checks and allow the Governor to operate as more of a dictator and not a public servant.

In New York’s 41st Senate District, Senator Sue Serino has been an avid supporter of law enforcement and has sponsored countless bills in support of police and has been a leading public health advocate. Senator Serino led the charge in 2019 as she pushed her colleagues in Albany to support additional funding, research, and preventatives to help those suffering from Lyme and tick-borne diseases throughout New York State.

Albany is a better place with legislators like Senator Serino working tirelessly to advocate for good on behalf of her district and New York as a whole.

We hear every election cycle that it’s “the most important” election of our lifetime. Well, 2020 is the most important election of our lifetime, there is no denying it. The left has attempted to bully conservatives into submission through rioting, looting, and lawlessness. Common sense must prevail this November. We cannot continue to hemorrhaged residents to other states. We must get back to keeping all politics local and ensuring our representatives in Albany are working for us, not trying to out progressive their democratic colleagues.

Angi Renna and Sue Serino are where the common sense starts. Please check out their websites and get involved:  Angi Renna;  Sue Serino

The swamp still needs more draining and that would never happen under a Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) administration.  Even after Trump ordered an end, federal agencies still push insane ‘critical race theory’

Imagine for a moment the mainstream media asking the former VP about this:  Joe Biden’s 2016 call with ex-Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko is leaked.  Of course, it would never happen, because 1) he won’t sit for a real interview and 2) most in the mainstream media want him to be president so they ask soft-ball questions.

If you still have friends on the left side of the fence, tell them it isn’t too late to walk away from their leftist ideals.

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap-up discusses September 11, @cpnys reinstatement, Governor Cuomo caves and new ads by Congresswoman Stefanik and Congressional Candidate Malliotakis.

NEVER FORGET

 On this 19th anniversary of September 11, 2001 I want to remember the lives lost, the families affected and the heroes who responded without hesitation.

Our darkest hour was followed by heroism we could spend a lifetime documenting. Firefighters, Police officers, EMT’s, even civilians rushed to save lives, never thinking about the potential consequences. They knew their fellow New Yorker’s needed help and that’s all they needed to know.

19 years later, we are still losing first responders to 9/11 related illnesses. We are still seeing people suffer and families grieve.

I ask that you continue to remember everyone affected, pray for the families and offer comfort. Most importantly, honor their memories by honoring the city and country they jumped into action to protect.

Conservative Party Re-instated on Twitter

After two long months of being suppressed and silenced on Twitter, the State Conservative Party account was re-instated last night.

We are thrilled to be back and have an additional platform to communicate with our party members and other like-minded individuals. We are entering the final stretch of the most important election of our lifetime. Being able to promote our candidates, keep the public up-to-date on what is going on with their campaigns, and bringing you information in real time is crucial to their success.

I want to thank Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay and Senate Minority Leader Rob Ortt for sending a letter to Twitter’s CEO demanding answers as to why we were suspended from twitter. We have never violated any of the terms of use, nor have we promoted any inappropriate content. Our biggest crime is practicing common sense conservative values.

If you are on Twitter, please follow us @CPNYS for up-to-date news, and keep you up-to-date on our candidates from Long Island to the North Country.

Governor Caves to Mounting Pressure

Governor Cuomo’s bluff was called by New York City restaurateurs this week after they delivered a $2 billion lawsuit against the city and state.

More than 300 restaurants joined in on the class action lawsuit that demands New York City establishments be permitted to open 50% of their indoor seating capacity.

Assemblymember Nicole Malliotakis and City Councilman Steve Matteo joined the lawsuit which was filed in Richmond County earlier this week.

The Governor folded like a cheap suit and announced 25% of indoor seating capacity may be opened starting September 30. However, waiting nearly 3 more weeks and only allowing 25% capacity is not nearly enough to help restaurants sustain themselves through the winter season. Restaurant owners, along with Malliotakis and Matteo are continuing with their lawsuit and demanding 50% of seating be made available.

Stefanik, Malliotakis Release New Ads

Rep. Elise Stefanik and first time Congressional candidate Nicole Malliotakis released new ads earlier this week as they continue to campaign hard against their far-left opponents.

The ads can be seen here:

A special thank you to Senate Republican Leader Senator Robert Ortt and Assembly Republican Leader Assemblyman Will Barclay for recognizing that we have been suspended by Twitter, no reason has been given to @cpnys for the suspension that has silenced us 3 times this year, the last time since July 10, 2020.  If there is a way you can help get the suspension lifted, please do so, we miss communicating with our followers and fans on Twitter.  Thank you!

America is going through a crisis; and the blame for the unrest is based on her early history of slavery.  Those who understand our history, know that slavery was abolished on December 6, 1865 when the 13th Amendment was ratified.  What makes America unique, and the beacon of hope to many, is that we also have a history of correcting the errors made.   However, today, in the year 2020, children go missing far too often, many of them sold for sex, certainly a heinous form of modern-day slavery, that few people recognize as slavery.   Thankfully, the U.S. Marshals Service found 39 missing children in Georgia over two weeks in a mission called Operation Not Forgotten.  Listen to the podcast, provided by the Daily Signal, on how the US Marshalls accomplished rescuing today’s those forced into slavery in 2020.   With the help of Operation Not Forgotten, America will end this injustice and our children will be safe.
