From the City-Journal:  Let’s Talk About Free Speech.

Chairman Kassar discusses being back on the trail, Democrats and Court-Packing, and Bill Pepitone our mayoral candidate.

Back on the Trail

After a long delay due to travel restrictions related to the Corona Virus, I am back on the road moving party business forward. This past week, I spent two days in Washington D.C. to discuss the future for the State Conservative Party and politics in New York State.

I had meetings with several members from our state delegation which gave me an opportunity to discuss their priorities and a bit of politics. I found our delegation is focused and working hard for their districts to combat radical liberals and their dangerous, expensive agenda.

I was also happy to meet with key conservative leaders including Karen Cross, the Political Action Director of the National Right to Life Committee, Governor Scott Walker, President of Young America’s Foundation, and Dan Schneider, Executive Director of the American Conservative Union.

Additionally, I had a great meeting with Saul Anuzis, President of “60 Plus,” and Justin Richards, the Executive Director of the Republican Congressional Campaign Committee to discuss our current members and some New York State candidates on the horizon.

Finally, I caught up with hard-charging Congressman Lee Zeldin to discuss his gubernatorial campaign and the next year and a half. Congressman Zeldin is focused on his district and his run to return New York to glory; a state we can all be proud of without living in fear of rising crime, taxes, and quality of life issues.

Democrats Move to Pack Supreme Court

The New York State Conservative Party condemns in the strongest possible terms efforts to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from 9 to 13 members.

In attempting to pack the court — a political impulse 75 consecutive Congresses have resisted — progressive Democrats are fiddling with the lock of a Pandora’s Box. If the Democrats succeed, what’s to stop Republicans from further expanding the court to 17 members when they next regain power? What’s to then stop Democrats from going to 21?

The Supreme Court was never intended to be the plaything of temporary partisan passions, and it should not be now for the benefit of either party. Its role is to interpret the constitutionality of our laws, not advance shortsighted political agendas. We urge level-headed members of Congress from all political backgrounds to stop this ill-conceived bill dead in its tracks.

We have seen a once prosperous nation, Venezuela, pack their courts with handpicked judges selected to act as an arm of the Hugo Chavez regime. The result? Between the years of 2004 and 2013, 45,000 rulings were examined, not once did they rule against Chavez and his Government.

That is not democracy, that is not freedom, that is socialism at its ugliest and mark my words, court-packing will be bad for America and its future.

Bill Pepitone for Mayor

The New York Conservative Party has its own candidate for Mayor, former NYPD office Bill Pepitone. This is not unusual as the party has run candidates solely endorsed by the Conservative Party including Bill Buckley, Barry Farber, Mario Biaggi, and George Marlin amongst others.

Bill was born and raised in Brooklyn New York, in a family of public servants. His father was a New York City Police Officer, Firefighter and Fire Marshal, His mother was a medical assistant, his uncle served as a detective with the NYPD Street Crime and Career Criminals Unit, and his grandfather served in the United States Navy.

It was inevitable that Bill would answer the call to serve the people, in 1989, Bill Pepitone joined the New York Police Department. During his career, he was assigned to Patrol Borough Brooklyn North, Brooklyn South Task Force, and the NYPD Police Academy’s Physical Training and Tactics Department.

Like most of us across the country, Bill Pepitone is devastated by what is happening to our freedoms, our livelihoods, our businesses, and our safety within our communities.  These are some of the reasons, he chose to run for Mayor of New York City.

Read Chairman Kassar’s statement court-packing here.

The Conservative Party does not agree with Speaker Pelosi an 99.9% of what Ms. Pelosi stands for in Congress.  However, as the saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day.  On this one issue, we believe the Speaker is right.  Pelosi rejects fellow Democrats’ ‘court-packing’ bill, will not bring it to vote. We sincerely hope that whatever the Biden created bipartisan commission on Supreme Court reform decides, Ms. Pelosi will stand firm in not supporting it either since it is stacked with partisans despite being labeled “bipartisan.”

It is during times like these that we must remember the words of the late Barry Goldwater’s acceptance speech as the republican candidate for president in 1964:

  • The growing menace in our country tonight, to personal safety, to life, to limb and property, in homes, in churches, on the playgrounds and places of business, particularly in our great cities, is the mounting concern, or should be, of every thoughtful citizen in the United States.  Security from domestic violence, no less than from foreign aggression, is the most elementary and fundamental purpose of any government, and a government that cannot fulfill this purpose is one that cannot long command the loyalty of its citizens.
  • History shows us, demonstrates that nothing– nothing– prepares the way for tyranny more than the failure of public officials to keep the streets safe from bullies and marauders.”
  • “Now, we Republicans see all this as more–much more–than the result of mere political differences, or mere political mistakes. We see this as the result of a fundamentally and absolutely wrong view of man, his nature, and his destiny.
  • “Their mistaken course stems from false notions, ladies and gentlemen, of equality. Equality, rightly understood as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences; wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism.
  • “It is, further, the cause of Republicanism to restore a clear understanding of the tyranny of man over man in the world at large. It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don’t rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression–and this is hogwash.”

As we all know, Senator Goldwater lost in a landslide to Lyndon B. Johnson, who went on to usher into America government programs that were designed to placate the unrest and injustices America was facing.  Today, fifty-seven years later, we face worsening unrest and yes, there is still some injustices; but the generations that have followed have made great strides to make certain that everyone is guaranteed the right to life, liberty and happiness.  That every American has an equal opportunity does not mean that every American has the voice of an angel, the ability to be on a major league sports team, the creator of a multimillion dollar App or to take an idea and turn it into Amazon, Facebook or Google.  It is time every American stands up for the American Dream:  The opportunity to build a dream, not destroy others because you do not have what they worked so hard for.  It isn’t easy, ask David Hogg who had the opportunity to start Good Pillow in February, 2021 and walked away in April. 2021.

These are difficult times; but we are Americans, we have pulled together before and we will now.

Democrats are redefining ‘infrastructure’ to justify Biden’s slush fund.  When you read some of what Sen. Gillibrand describes as infrastructure, you ask yourself, does she really think we are that ignorant to believe her, or is she that uneducated that she believes it herself?  Either way, the fact that Ms. Gillibrand is New York’s US Senator – writing and voting on laws that have the ability to change our lives – is a problem.   A review of her time in Congress (Since 2007 in the House, then appointed to the Senate in 2009) Sen. Gillibrand has only had one bill signed into law.  In 14 years, one bill signed into law and that was designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 4558 Broadway in New York, New York, as the “Stanley Michels Post Office Building”.  Her overall rating by the American Conservative Union is 4.44 %; while the Americans for Democrat Action gave her a 95% for 2019.  More information from Americans for Democrat Action can be found here.   After reviewing her record, I believe Senator Gillibrand actually believes what she tweeted.  New Yorkers deserve better, unfortunately she is not up for re-election until November, 2024.

Is it a way to pressure the US Senate to pass HR-1, the federal takeover of voting in the United States while the US Constitution specifically leaves it up to individual states?  Is it about appeasing employees? What they should realize is that they really do not want to anger those who purchase their goods, especially when many CEOs are not fully aware of what any pending legislation will do.  After all the Bill passed in Georgia, that began this upheaval was completely misrepresented.  Even the ultra-liberal Washington Post gave President Joe Biden 4 Pinocchio’s for his take on the bill – yet, he continues to distort it.

Chairman Kassar’s weekly wrap discuses the NYS Budget, the Zeldin and Schmitt Announcements and the Disorder at the Border.

New York State Budget tops $212 Billion; Comes with Massive Tax Hikes

Late, expensive, and using taxpayers to bail New York out of another mismanaged state budget. I wouldn’t expect anything less from this Governor and State Legislature.

The state budget is a liberal’s dream and taxpayers’ nightmare; it throws all fiscal responsibility right out window while it continues to set a dangerous precedence going forward.  A balanced budget does not matter to the Governor, as long as he has taxpayers to place the burden on, he will continue to recklessly spend.

For years, far before the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been spiraling out of control, writing checks and spending money we do not have. After a federal bailout to the tune of $12.6 billion, Governor Cuomo and the Democrat controlled State Legislature raised taxes by an additional $4 billion, making New York perhaps the most taxed state in the nation and further providing more reasons for residents and businesses to explore other options in friendlier states.

To add insult to injury, $2.1 billion of the state budget was allocated for illegal immigrants while less than half that amount was allocated to help small businesses survive.

The priorities of Democrats are beyond misplaced. They have, once again, prioritized those most willing to break laws over the hardworking taxpayers who wish to live in New York State, operate a small business, or simply provide for their family.

Zeldin, Schmitt Announcements

Congressman Lee Zeldin and Assemblyman Colin Schmitt announced their intentions to run for Governor and Congress respectively in 2022 this week.

Their entry into the Governors race and what is now New York’s 18th Congressional District is welcome news as both have been excellent representatives to their districts.

Congressman Zeldin, a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, served in the New York State Senate from 2011-2014 before defeating incumbent Democratic Congressman Tim Bishop in 2014. Lee is currently serving in his 4th term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Assemblyman Colin Schmitt, a Corporal in the Army National Guard, was elected to the State Assembly in 2018. Colin easily won re-election in 2020. The seat was previously held by the Democrats until Colin flipped the open blue seat red.

We welcome them both and look forward to working with their teams.

Disorder at the Border

President Joe Biden wasted no time creating chaos at the border as illegal crossings are on pace to reach the highest levels in 20 years.

Shockingly 172,000 immigrants were apprehended in March alone under the Biden Administration. That represents an increase of 71% from March 2020 under the Trump Administration.

In addition to the humanitarian and public health crisis at our Southern Border, grave national security threats are a growing concern as two men on a terrorism watch list, and no fly list, were arrested after illegally crossing the border from Mexico into California, officials from the U.S. Border Patrol announced Monday. The men were apprehended in separate incidents, one on January 29th and the other March 30, signaling the utter disregard for our immigration laws and weakness portrayed by the Biden Administration.

Many members of the New York Congressional delegation have visited the border, or will shortly, to see firsthand the disorder President Biden has caused through the undoing of Trump era policies by executive order.

Today, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis posted this video taken in McAllen, Texas last night as she toured the border with Whip Steve Scalise and other members of Congress.

Congressman Chris Jacobs was also touring the border last night. His initial observations can be heard here.

In March, House Homeland Security Ranking Member, Congressman John Katko, with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy led a delegation to the Southern Border for a tour and discussion with Border Patrol Agents to assess the dire situation on the ground. Congresswoman Claudia Tenney was also among those who visited; you can watch some of that here.

“As a federal organized crime prosecutor back in the 90s, I was charged with going after the drug cartels. I had a fundamental understanding then, and I do now, that the cartels know when to exploit the southern border, and they’re doing it now masterfully. They’re doing it because President Biden rolled back a lot of the orders of the previous administration that were working” said Congressman Katko.

NY’s $212B budget shows how Gov. Cuomo’s scandals have drained his power.  Unfortunately, all New Yorkers will be forced to pay the price of his arrogance as the progressive-left walks all over him.  We had our differences with Governor Cuomo’s budget agreements (and legislation) throughout his administration, but what has happened this year is irrefutably the most irresponsible waste of taxpayers’ dollars ever adopted in the long history of the New York State Legislature.  After Albany’s off-the-chart budget and monster tax hikes, NY needs a voter rebellion.

Brooklyn, NY – The democratic-controlled NYS Legislature, along with Governor Andrew Cuomo, are on the verge of passing an historically high spending document that increases spending and taxes to the highest levels ever in New York State.  These significant increases will impact all New Yorker’s, especially New York’s working families.

New York’s proposed budget has gone from bad to unsustainable, while the progressive-left cheers and says it will help working families in New York State.  Nothing could be further from reality.

New York’s working families need jobs to be able to keep working; by adopting new increased taxes on those who are wealthy and on corporations, NYS Government is encouraging an even greater exodus from New York by those who can leave and forcing corporations to escape to states that are tax-friendly, thereby taking New York jobs with them.

New York’s poor fiscal management, by the supermajority of democratic elected officials, is a flawed and erroneous way to uphold their oath to those who put them in office.  Shame on them.
