Chairman Kassar weekly wrap up discusses DOJ Dropping Nursing Home Investigation, House Passes Spending Bill and the Universal Absentee Lawsuit.

DOJ Drops Nursing Home Investigation

The Department of Justice has decided to drop their investigation into whether the civil rights of residents in New York’s government-run nursing homes were violated by Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his decision to demand nursing homes admit COVID-19 positive patients.

Governor Cuomo is still under investigation by the FBI and the Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s office for the cover up of the total number of residents killed by the virus in nursing homes.

“New Yorkers deserve answers and accountability. I was the first member of Congress to call for an investigation into Governor Cuomo’s corrupt criminal coverup and I will continue to fight for the families who lost loved ones because of the cruelty and corruption of our Governor,” Congresswoman Elise Stefanik said.

The decision to drop the investigation by the Biden Administration while the FBI, and U.S. Attorney’s office continue their probe is a clear favor to Cuomo who has been an ally of Biden since day 1. It is unfortunate President Biden’s DOJ was willing to trade the lives of thousands of New Yorkers to protect the Governor who sent countless individuals to their deaths then lied –and profited — about it.

The motives are clearly political. We have all seen first-hand the carnage caused by the Governors order and the admission by his own staff of their subsequent cover up and abuse of power.  Justice for the victims and their families are now in the hands of the FBI and Brooklyn U.S. Attorney’s office as well as the Legislature.

House Passes Spending Bill

 The U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed a spending bill which notably funds the Green New Deal, provides money to communist China, tramples on the 2ND Amendment, and has no Hyde Amendment protections.

The Democratic-led House’s bill would eliminate a 45-year-old stipulation that prohibits taxpayer money from funding abortions. The bill passed with a 219-208 vote.

Fortunately, the bill is unlikely to pass the Senate with at least one Democrat, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, voicing her intentions to vote no when the bill comes to a vote on the Senate floor.

All eight Conservative Party endorsed members of the New York delegation voted no on the bill.

 Universal Absentee Lawsuit

The State Supreme Court in Niagara County will hear our arguments on August 26th for a summary judgement to strike a statue that made universal absentee ballots available for this year’s elections. While they are hearing our arguments, they will hear arguments by the defendants, which include the Governor and State Legislature who wish to have our lawsuit dismisses.

The complaint seeks to overturn an unconstitutional action by the State Legislature S.8015-D/A.10833 signed into law by Governor Cuomo on August 20th, 2020 and now Chapter 139 of the laws of 2020. This Chapter amends Election Law Section 8-400 in clear violation of Article II, Section 2 of the State Constitution. This section establishes specific circumstances in which a registered voter can obtain an absentee ballot.

The Conservative Party maintains that this Chapter makes a permanent change in the State Constitution and as such requires approval of the electorate by placing such amendment on the November ballot. The Legislature and Governor by adopting said piece of legislation have circumvented that process.

Statement from New York State Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on  Biden’s DOJ Ignoring Outrageous Cuomo Covid $chemes 

Brooklyn, NY — “Thousands of senior citizens perished in New York nursing homes from Covid-19 under Governor Andrew Cuomo’s ill-advised policies; Cuomo furtively covered up the deaths — at the very same time he was negotiating a $5.1 million book deal for himself, with his book largely written and researched by paid government employees.

“With all that, how is it possible that President Biden’s Department of Justice has decided that there’s nothing to see here?

“Could this have anything to do with Biden and Cuomo’s long political friendship? Could it have something to do with Cuomo being the first governor in America to endorse Biden for president?

“The New York State Conservative Party finds itself asking these very questions, because, frankly, no other explanation is tenable. This decision stinks to high heaven, and the families of those lost are right to be outraged. What a gross miscarriage of federal justice.”

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses Buffalo’s India Walton, the Ben & Jerry’s controversy and the NYS Senate GOP’s call for bail reform analysis.

Buffalo Mayoral Hopeful Has Questionable Background

The Buffalo News reported on Tuesday that the home of India Walton was the subject of a police investigation in 2018 after numerous complaints of a drug operation surfaced.

A police report obtained by The Buffalo News showed that officers investigated the complaints in the fall of 2018. Police sources said the suspect from Walton’s home was Anson Whitted, who served more than 12 years in state prison for selling cocaine, assault and possession of a weapon.

Walton doesn’t deny Whitted’s presence in the home acknowledging he was a frequent guest who occasionally stayed there.

The owner of the home whom Walton was renting from demanded she move out of the house after receiving numerous complaints about constant visitors consistent with drug trade activities.

The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist scored a stunning upset over longtime incumbent Buffalo Mayor Myron Brown. Walton, an outspoken advocate for defunding the police, is endorsed and supported heavily by the far left Working Families Party and Democratic Socialists of America Party.

Ben & Jerry’s Boycott

Ben & Jerry’s announced on Monday that it would stop selling ice cream in the occupied Palestinian territory, the decision has sparked a wave of criticism from both Democrats and Republicans, and leading to mass boycotts that include long time vendors ending contracts with the ice cream company and stores pulling the product off their shelves.

“#Benandjerrys has now decided they know more about Jerusalem than the Israelis. If Ben & Jerry’s wants to have a meltdown & boycott Israel, OK is ready to respond. Oklahoma has an anti-boycott of Israel law in place,” @SenatorLankford (R-OK) Twitted Wednesday.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and State Comptroller Glenn Hegar echoed a similar sentiment, threatening to add the company and its parent, Unilever, to a list of organizations that boycott Israel, making it ineligible for investments from the state’s pension fund.

While Ben & Jerry’s no longer feel comfortable doing business with Israel, they continue to feel comfortable doing business with China. I suspect Ben & Jerry’s will soon find their sales to have cooled off following what will be a significant boycott of the brand all over the world.

Senate GOP Calls for bail reform analysis

New York State Senate Republicans this week called on officials to conduct a review of whether the changes to New York’s bail laws are linked to the rise in violent crime throughout the state over the last few months.

Senate Minority Leader Robert Ortt sent a letter to the Office of Court Administration and the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, asking if the sharp rise in shootings in New York City in 2020 compared to that of previous years have any correlation with the states soft on crime bail reform legislation.

“The recent surge in shootings and violent crime all across the state have confirmed our worst fears — so called criminal justice ‘reforms’ passed under One-Party Rule are a danger to all New Yorkers,” Ortt said. “Shootings are up. Hate crimes are up. While the Governor’s recently declared state of emergency finally acknowledges what the Republican Conference has stated all along, that violence in our cities is a serious problem, it ignores the very policies and rhetoric he has embraced in the past two years: bail reform, discovery reform and a war on our police. It’s time for the Governor to acknowledge the consequences of his actions, and that begins by examining his own state data — not ignoring or whitewashing it,” he continued.

In 2021, murders have increased by more than 3% in New York City while shooting incidents have increased by 22%. Startling numbers when you consider we are just now entering the time of year in which crime spikes.

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses Cuba, Gun Rights and Chick-fil-A.

Cubans Protest for Freedom

 The hunger for freedom sparked massive protests across the island nation of Cuba this week as citizens took to the streets rallying against 62 years of tyranny and communism.

The communist Cuban regime has blocked internet access, as well as restricted all international media coverage of the protest, but that has not stopped the story from spreading to ever corner of Cuba and the United States.

Support for Cuban freedom has been bi-partisan with members of both parties publicly speaking out in support of the Cuban people. However, despite calls for action from both sides of the aisle, the Biden Administration has been slow to act.

Florida Democrats, many of whom represent districts just 150 miles or less from Cuba, see an opportunity to act on behalf of the Cuban people and freedom. “…failed policies of a communist regime that has violated human rights, imprisoned & killed dissidents.” Said former Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “This is a matter of national security. The US must act” she continued.

Though one Democratic representative, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, found a way to blame the United States. “We also must name the U.S contribution to Cuban suffering: our sixty-year-old embargo,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “I outright reject the Biden administration’s defense of the embargo. It is never acceptable for us to use cruelty as a point of leverage against everyday people.

Congressmember Nicole Malliotakis, the daughter of a Cuban immigrant, released this statement encouraging the Biden Administration to not revert back to the Obama Administration failed foreign policy strategy with Cuba.

The Biden Administration cannot continue to sit on their hands. The time for “considering” actions is over. The Cuban people want decisive action and support, the United States is in the position to provide both.

Tenney Sues for Gun Rights

Congresswoman Claudia Tenney is pushing the Supreme Court to overturn a state law limiting who can carry concealed firearms outside their homes. The move comes with the support from 168 House Republicans.

Tenney and the coalition of Republicans have filed an amicus brief backing the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association’s lawsuit against New York, arguing that its law denying concealed-carry licenses to law-abiding citizens without a “proper cause” is a violation of Second Amendment rights.

“Everybody is very interested in it,” Congresswoman Tenney said. “This would probably give some clarity on a national level as to the ability to restrict Second Amendment rights when it comes to concealed carry, particularly outside the home.”

New York gun law prohibits concealed-carry licenses unless “proper cause” can be proven by demonstrating they have reason to be issued a permit. Gun rights advocates say the law makes it almost impossible for law-abiding citizens to obtain concealed-carry permits.

The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and two men denied licenses to carry a gun outside of their home for self-defense filed the original legal challenge.

Chick-fil-A Controversy

 New York State lawmakers are more concerned with fast food chicken than they are with dangerous bail reform, massive decline in quality of life, and violence sweeping across the state.

The Atlanta, Georgia based fast-food chain is one of many restaurants that were awarded contracts by the New York State Thruway Authority to be part of a $450 million plan to renovate 27 service areas. This has caused Democrats in the State Legislature to issue letters asking the Thruway Authority to re-examine the project solely due to the chicken restaurants Christian views of its founders and CEO.

Chick-fil-A, the highest grossing fast food chain in America, has multiple locations throughout New York City, including its largest location located in Lower Manhattan.

In my experience a chicken on a bun is just that, let’s not make more out of it. Bringing Chick-fil-A to the Thruway is a great idea. Chick fil-A is a vendor that will be under contract to the Authority with all state guidelines being followed and no taxpayer funds involved. The most popular restaurant in American should be allowed to continue doing business throughout New York State.

You can read my statement on Chick-fil-A coming to the Thruway here.

Mr. President where is your American Pride?

President Joe Biden finally gets one aspect of foreign affairs right, albeit, it should begin now, and not in two weeks.   Evacuation of Afghan interpreters who worked with US military to begin last week of July. Maybe this is what moved President Biden to do the right thing for the Afghan interpreters who helped our Military while they were stationed in Afghanistan.  Whatever the reason, we should all be grateful that America is, once again, doing what is right for those who have helped our military.

On the other hand, if President Joe Biden continues to listen to the progressive left that hates America, he will become the greatest threat to American democracy since the birth of our beloved nation.  The voting laws in place prior to COVID-19 have served our country well; they were in force while electing almost every member of the US Congress and Senate, 45 Presidents, countless Governors, members of State Houses, and local officials.  The USA has protected foreign nations during world wars, advanced the health of citizens in underdeveloped nations, put a man on the Moon, created countless ways to improve lives — all by electing our officials without incidents — until the elite democrats decided that former President Donald J. Trump didn’t fit their agenda and made it their goal that President Trump would not be elected again.  Now they are gaslighting Americans; demanding total control of all state elections.  By catering to those progressives, President Joe Biden makes Coriolanus Snow (the fictional president in Hunger Games) look like a benevolent grandfather out to protect his children.  Should he continue to portray the changes that states are implementing to protect the integrity of voting (must be a citizen, have identification and absolutely no automatic absentee ballots) President Joe Biden will become the greatest threat to what made America the beacon of the free world.  Biden Labels GOP Voting Laws Greatest Threat to American Democracy Since Civil War.
