Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses early voting, Biden underwater, Removing Jefferson and our 2021 Fall Reception this Thursday.

Early Voting begins Saturday

 The early voting period begins this Saturday and I urge everyone to grab a friend or family member and go vote.

 The nine months of the Biden Presidency have been flooded with controversy and out of touch policies. We’re feeling the pain at the pump where the average gallon of gas in New York State costs $3.51. Families are having to make sacrifices at the grocery store due to the rise of inflation, and supply chain issues are causing shelves to go empty. We have a humanitarian and health crisis at the southern border and handed Afghanistan back to the Taliban.

Additionally, it is pivotal we flip our ballots and vote NO on propositions 1, 3, and 4! Please make sure your friends and family are aware of the crucial need to vote on these Democratic power grabs.  In fact, a NO vote on all five proposals would be the right vote.

We cannot allow this to become the status quo. The opportunity to send a clear message is now. Early voting runs from Saturday, October 23 until Sunday, October 31.

Biden Underwater

 President Biden’s approval rating continues to sink as Americans wake up to the harsh new reality he has provided.

The president currently stands at 43% approval and 51% disapproval in an average of the latest national polls. Democrats are keeping a close eye on the approval rating of the President as it could be an indicator of what’s to come in the 2022 midterm elections.

Biden’s declining rate should be a concern to the White House as Democrats cling onto a slim majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. The biggest alarm should be Biden’s approval among independents; an important voting block for the Democrats. The President has lost seven points since September and has dropped nine points with suburban women.

 The Biden experiment is not working, and it only took nine months for Americans to realize it.

 Removing Jefferson

 Mayor de Blasio and the New York City Council want to drag from City Hall a statue of one of America’s most celebrated presidents and founding fathers that has stood in its chambers for almost a century and a quarter. If that doesn’t tell you the state of this city, nothing will.

Their priority as crime skyrockets, potholes deepen, and public confidence in city government plummets was to erase history.

The genius of our founders lay in their understanding of human fallibility. The nation they envisioned was fixed upon ideals rather than individuals exactly for this reason. We celebrate Jefferson not because he was perfect — no man or woman is — but because he blazed a path for human dignity and freedom that we aspire to achieve every day.

Our Government has abandoned all common sense and reasoning. They spend more time looking for things to be outraged over instead of working to fix the problems right in front of their faces.

2021 Fall Reception

Our fall reception is right around the corner and we look forward to seeing you there. We are happy to welcome gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin amongst many other honored guests.

Come join us for a great evening of fun in Westchester. Register to attend here.

Statement from Conservative Party Chairman Gerard Kassar on Potential Economic Damage from Congestion Pricing Tax

October 21, 2021

“The New York State Conservative Party lives, not dreamland, and in the reality of this moment imposing a congestion pricing tax on vehicles traveling south of 60th Street in Manhattan would be foolhardy in the extreme.

“Midtown and Lower Manhattan, traditionally the state’s most formidable economic engines, are reeling from Covid-19 and the workplace changes it caused. These areas are struggling mightily to attract back workers and visitors. Slapping the public with a tax to enter these commercial districts would be an obvious disincentive that could have serious ramifications for the overall state economy.

“A congestion pricing tax would be wrong for a number of reasons — it hurts low-income New Yorkers and those transit desserts especially, and it will simply move traffic to other parts of the city, among other things — but the destruction it could cause to Manhattan recovery efforts alone should halt it in its tracks.

“It’s Economics 101: Why would we tax people to enter an area we’re trying to revive?”

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap up discusses our Vote NO campaign, how the Grinch (apologies to Dr. Seuss’ Grinch) stole an economy and Lee Zeldin launches a Lt. Gov. Search Committee.

Conservative Party Launches Vote NO Campaign

 Between now and Election Day the Conservative Party will be working overtime to defeat Ballot Propositions 1, 3 and 4. The propositions will appear on the backside of your ballot.  When you receive your ballot, please make sure you do not miss these important votes.  Below is a short summary of what the propositions are and the issues they will cause.

Proposition 1 gives the Democratic Party even more power in drawing new legislative lines, a tool they will certainly use to their advantage to purge Conservative/Republican representation.

Proposition 3 would allow for Election Day enrollment and voting. Same day enrollment would mean zero time to ensure the registered voter is indeed eligible to vote in the State of New York.  Clearly this will lead to fraud

Proposition 4 will replace absentee ballots with universal paper ballots.  Just like Proposition 3, there is no voter ID required.  This will increase fraud through ballot harvesting which is another way of saying stuffing the ballot box.

We have yard signs, literature, and speakers available. If you would like a yard sign, call us at 718-921-2158 or 518-356-7882.

 The Grinch That Stole an Economy

 Give credit where credit is due. In less than nine months the Biden Administration has given us high inflation on all fronts, and has even managed to foul up the supply side of just about everything that travels by ship.

Get your Christmas shopping done early, very early, or Christmas may come in February.

With consumer prices up and inflation rising faster than wages, it comes as no surprise that the hashtag #EmptyShelvesJoe was trending nationally as social media users take to the platforms of their choice to voice their displeasure with prices at the pump, grocery stores and overall lack of products available.

President Biden has the worse poll numbers of any president in American history at this point in time during their presidency. As we near the 9 month mark, there is no telling what the next three years may hold.

The Biden/Harris Administration has given us high gas prices, high inflation, COVID mandates, a humanitarian and health crisis at our Southern Border, handed Afghanistan back to the Taliban, and overall has made our nation less safe and secure. It’s hard to imagine that he could do more harm, but with three years remaining, the sky is the limit for colossal Biden failures.

Zeldin Launches Lt. Gov. Search Committee

 I was pleased to be asked by our presumptive nominee for Governor, Lee Zeldin, to serve on his Lt. Governor Search Committee.

Joining me on the committee will be Livingston County Chairman Jason McGuire. The committee will be chaired by Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis.

The Conservative Party continues to play a significant role statewide and we thank Lee Zeldin and his team for recognizing the road to victory includes our membership and our votes. In 2018 Marc Molinaro and Julie Killian received 253,624 votes on our party line. We look forward to delivering more in 2022.

Zeldin Opens NYC Headquarters

I had the pleasure of introducing Congressman, and future Governor, Lee Zeldin at the grand opening of his New York City campaign headquarters.

Lee continues to crisscross the state while raising money at an impressive clip. His campaign has worked tirelessly since day 1 and shows no signs of slowing down. Lee Zeldin is the right guy at the right time to restore New York and clean up the mess left behind by disgraced former Governor Cuomo and Governor Hochul who covered up his wrong doings for personal gain.

While the Democrats continue fighting amongst themselves, appearing to be heading towards a very divisive primary that could include NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, AG Tish James and NYC Public Advocate Jumaane Williams. It is imperative we get involved often and early to elect Lee Zeldin as our next Governor.

To get involved stop on by Lee’s NYC HQ located at 158 West 29th Street, NY, NY.

JCOPE Approves Inquiry into Cuomo Book Deal

For nearly a year the Conservative Party has called for an investigation into the various unseemly aspects of the Cuomo COVID book deal. For months, the corrupt Governor and his Senior Staff were able to squash any investigation Republican’s sought. Now, with Cuomo’s team of lap dogs gone, the questionable book deal which earned Cuomo millions will now go under formal investigation.

Jose Nieves, new chairman of the Joint Commission on Public Ethics, announced after a closed-door session on Tuesday that outside counsel would be retained to investigate “the legal and procedural operations of the commission.”

The former governor was paid $5 million for the book, titled “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic,” after the commission’s top staff approved Cuomo’s request to receive the outside income. It is believed Governor Cuomo abused tax payer dollars by using state employees to conduct research, write and edit the book.

Happy Columbus Day

Columbus Day is not just celebrated to honor one man, instead it is a day to celebrate a brave and daring voyage across unchartered waters that launched hundreds of years’ worth of immigration, innovation, and exceptionalism.

Christopher Columbus represents the idea that you can indeed accomplish more than you think. You can have a dream and through perseverance, hard work, and sacrifice achieve those dreams.

We have lost sight of what it means to take chances, to be brave, and work hard. What we have instead found is a generation hell bent on re-writing history, failing to include context and expecting generations and generations of a changing world to think and act exactly as those with the loudest voice do at this very moment.

By today’s standards, it is easy to condemn anyone. Cancel culture is toxic, it is fundamentally about shaming, and it is about trying to ruin someone or something that may have momentarily made a mistake.

The phenomenon of cancel culture does not but create an environment of hostility and division. Cancel culture is believed to create a sense of accountability for those who say or do controversial things. Instead, it creates an environment where harassment and bullying are not only accepted—it is embraced.

Cancel culture is not activism. It is not brave. As a society, we should work towards more understanding each other better. Understanding where we came from, the times different people lived through, where we are, and where we want to go. Christopher Columbus did just that. He dared to do the unthinkable and paved the way for us to do the same.

Josh Hawley Questions ‘Weaponizing’ of FBI to Silence Parents; Attorney General Garland Abuses Power He Doesn’t Have to Threaten Parents; State Attorneys General Warn Against ‘Weaponizing’ FBI to Target Parents; Biden Declares War on the American People; and Biden Criminalizes CRT Dissent/The administration has mobilized the FBI against parents who oppose critical race theory.

What this administration is attempting to do is outrageous; they defend their actions by saying that “all” public officials, i.e., school board members, can not be admonished when they are indoctrinating our children.  Free speech is revered in America; even when we disagree with it.  The members of the National School Boards Association – NSBA – are not given the right to squelch the parents who disagree with their agenda; they put their pants on just like every other person.  IF the Biden Administration is not stopped and US Attorney General Garland does not withdraw his attempt to protect the snowflakes running the NSBA, the chief enforcement officer of the US will be subverting the US Constitution.  If there is violence at any meeting, there are current laws to protect both sides.  What the Biden/Garland team is attempting to do is to stifle free speech and punish people/parents prior to any discussion; another action that is completely against all that America is.  If they succeed in this, what is next?  Having Child Protective Services remove your children from your home?  Think about how far they will try to go, if Biden/Garland is allowed to suppress your rights.
