Daily Update

The Daily Signal says it all:  Obama’s Shameful Pivot to Gun Control After Orlando.  Ambassador John Bolton reacts to the tragedy.  Part of what he said is this, “We will, in the coming days, doubtless hear that the terrorist was a lone wolf, that he did not belong to any known terrorist organization, that there are no wider threats.  In particular, those who are blind to the terrorist threat will downplay even the incontrovertible fact that Mateen pledged loyalty to ISIS as he committed his murders.”  Here is what President Obama said today, “…it appears the Orlando nightclub shooter was inspired by extremist information disseminated over the internet,” after his FBI Chief Comey said this, “… it appears Mateen was a self-radicalized lone wolf with no apparent help from overseas forces.”  I have one question to President Obama and FBI Chief Comey:  Please explain to me the coincidence of James Wesley Howell’s arrest. 

After Orlando, can we finally take the gloves off?

John Podhortez had a swift reaction to the President’s words yesterday. 

Hillary wasn’t very different than Obama in her reaction. Hey Hillary if you truly believe “This is a time to stand together and resolve to do everything we can to defend our communities and country,” when are you going to acknowledge that America is under attack by Islamic terrorists?

Hillary must have been reading America’s reaction to the Orland tragedy, as she has broken with Obama and dared to say “radical Islamism” was fueled the massacre. This just proves that Hillary will say … or use any words … that will help get her elected.  That is what happens when you do not have a moral compass. 

  France has very strict gun control and that didn’t prevent an attack on Paris, did it Madam Secretary.  Forget the role of Secretary of State — diplomacy — and try standing as a Commander-in-Chief…if you know how.  So far you haven’t shown any American that you can accept the mantle of Commander-in-Chief…your husband couldn’t either.

Hillary and Bill certainly do know how to shake down groups for big pay checks. In case you missed Saturday’s NY Post editorial on Hillary’s selling the State Department, here it is.

Here is what Chairman Long said about fantasy sports in New York State last week.

Wendy Long and Laura Ingram refute character attacks on Donald J. Trump. 


Weekly Wrap-Up

Barack Obama says that Hillary is more qualified to be President than he is. Talk about lowering the bar!

And the media is demanding that we all celebrate Hillary’s capture of the Democratic nomination. Let the identity politics begin…

Journalists are certainly debasing themselves giving “aid and comfort” to the Clinton campaign – and Google seems to be in her pocket as well (joining Facebook there, of course).

This leads me to our new Weekly Poll questions: Compared to Barack Obama, do you believe Hillary is more qualified to be President, less qualified, or equally qualified? How do you think liberal “journalists” will show their bias the MOST as Election Day nears? Do you believe reports that internet titans Facebook and Google are skewing the news in favor of Hillary? 

I look forward to seeing how everyone responds this week. 

Another week, another scandal for Hillary: how exactly did her big donor get appointed to an Intelligence Board for which he was completely unqualified?  (The key words here, of course, are “big donor.”)

And remember when exposing CIA agents was considered a crime against all humanity by the Washington press corps? But they’re fine with the possibility that Hillary did just that.

Meanwhile the White House assures us that President Obama’s endorsement of Hillary while she’s under investigation won’t influence the FBI at all.

Thanks to the “Obamaphone” program, we have 500 million more reasons why Obama is a terrible President – and thanks to Iran, we have 1.7 billion more.  

And stories like this show how Trump is a much-needed voice for the victims of “social justice warriors.” 



Have a great weekend!

Daily Update

Unfortunately, it is beginning to look like Preet Bharara will never run out of corruption probes.  He continues to do an exceptional job in protecting citizens from corrupt leaders; it is, however, time for citizens to make certain that those we designate to lead are trustworthy. 

Corruption is not limited to elected officials, this video shows corruption in our education system and regrettably will leave a lasting impression on our youth. If anyone thinks the students do not know what is going on — we have a bridge to sell you.

JCOPE was hailed by Governor Cuomo, “This new ethics reform law brings an aggressive new approach to returning integrity to the halls of our Capitol…”  and now we learn that JCOPE’s policies allowed Joe Perocco to avoid disclosures.  Obviously,  the fox cannot guard the hen house.   The solution hypocrite Andrew Cuomo is promoting now is not the answer to the corruption wave…after benefiting from super PAC’s,  he now thinks the US Supreme Court decision is corrupting the system.  What is corrupting the system is an overall lack of moral values in some individuals.  And voter’s turning a blind eye.

More workers are losing their jobs due to the increase in the minimum wage increase.

Job creation is the number one concern of Americans…who better to put in charge than a man who has actually created jobs

Daily Update

Chairman Long in an interview on Wednesday said he is opposed to the current daily fantasy sports proposal, saying the measure is an expansion of gambling in the state.  Read more here.

It’s official:  Hillary has the delegates to become the first woman to run for president on a major party line.  I’ll paraphrase Hillary’s quote at the Benghazi Hearings, “What difference does it make?”  We are not talking about a woman with the principles of Margaret Thatcher.  They are hailing a woman who didn’t answer the 3:00 AM call to save Americans — saying how wonderful it is that history has been made.  Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee of a political party that has systematically and deliberately try to change the core values that made America the greatest nation in the world and tries to make government the answer to all of life’s problems.  She is part of America’s current Oligarchy…soon to be dismantled.  The press may be hailing Hillary, but America’s citizens know that this woman who exploited the goodness of America in every way possible to become the nominee is about to learn the difference it made was the presidency. 

Why is it that the press is not covering this?

The Obama Administration listens to unions and ignores reality when it comes to wages.  Hillary will continue keeping wages down. 

Former Lt. Governor, Betsy McCaughey, writes in the NY Post that if you want economic growth, pick the candidate who’s actually created jobs

Mayor de Blasio continues to increase spending on infrastructure despite criticism.  Infrastructure is essential and Mayor de Blasio, as noted in previous article, has few qualms about the increased spending.  Wouldn’t our limited tax dollars be better spent on necessary and essential items, rather than advertisements like this.

Daily Update

What is Governor Cuomo thinking?  Why is he endangering citizens in upstate New York?  The transfer of 150 state police to New York City — where they would be duplicating the work of the NYPD and Port Authority Police — is a move that jeopardizes the lives and property of people who, in many places have no local police departments and are dependent on the state police.  

Jimmy Vielkind has a rather comprehensive article in today’s PoliticoNY, lamenting the lack of legislation to curb corruption by lawmakers.  Every proposal is window dressing!  And we have had a lot of window dressing in the past that has not ended the corruption.  Term limits is more than window dressing, it will get them out of office.  Sign our Term Limit petition .and return it to us(486 78th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11209) so we can let them know — corruption must end.  We need to present filled boxes, the more we present, the stronger the case to place Term Limits on the ballot.

President Obama lives in his own world.  Obama actually blamed the GOP for the poor jobs report.  The 20,642 regulations you forced on businesses had nothing to do with the lack of job creation, Mr. President.  As the Heritage Foundation notes, “The sheer cost of these regulations take a toll on the American economy. Businesses cannot be expected to thrive and expand in an economic climate that is plagued by doubt and uncertainty.”  Some even think the May jobs report is even worse than reported

When it isn’t your money, you don’t watch your pennies the way you should.

Michael J. Gaynor supports those who defend judicial impartiality.  Pillorying presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for demanding fairness from a federal judge of Mexican ancestry is in vogue now, but some who dared to stand up for judicial impartiality in both reality and appearance, like former White House Counsel and United States Attorney General under President George W. Bush Alberto Gonzales and former law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas and current United States Senate candidate in New York Wendy Long.

US Senate candidate, Wendy Long, issues her contract with New Yorkers.  Read it here.

Rest in Peace all that gave their lives on June 6, 1944.  The heroism and bravery displayed by troops from the Allied countries on D-Day is an inspiration.  In today’s PC world it would be difficult to accomplish.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Another month, another report of a sluggish economy and disappointing job growth. President Obama continues to subject hard-working Americans to a “part-time” economy.

Yet it’s Obama who whines about criticism of the poor job he’s done as President – going so far as to single out VFW halls as bastions of ignorance and misinformation. The VFW is, of course, having none of that – and the Weekly Standard points out that it’s Obama, not veterans, who have a “warped” view of the economy.

And of course, Obama focused on his top priority right now – not creating jobs or protecting America, but bashing Donald Trump and his economic policies.

We have a new Weekly Poll posted, and this week I want to focus on the jobs and economic growth.  

So think about where you live in New York (or wherever you may be) – do you see signs that the economy is getting better or worse?  Overall, which liberal policy championed by President Obama and Hillary Clinton do you think is doing the most damage to the U.S. economy? And do you think Donald Trump has what it takes to get the economy back on track? 

I hope you will vote today – I always enjoy getting a glimpse at what friends of the Conservative Party are thinking.

Last week’s Poll was about Hillary’s incompetence and corruption, and we’re hearing even more about that this week. 

Investor’s Business Daily shares three problems that Hillary can’t escape as she tries to dodge her email scandal – and it turns out, the punishment could be harsh. 

Corruption continues at the State Department, where facts are being scrubbed to fit the Obama Administration’s Iran narrative. 

Hillary gave a supposedly “major” foreign policy speech this week – but like Obama, her main focus is on attacking Trump. The Post points out that with most of her attacks, Hillary is actually describing herself.

Are Hillary’s shortcomings about to hit her campaign hard in the California primary? 

Have a great weekend!

De Blasio just killed a quality pre-K program to please his paymasters.

The NYPD has banned use of the word “cut” in reports about slashings and stabbings — and laid out painfully obvious definitions for cops to rely on when recording the attacks, The Post has learned.  Seriously?  What is up with the NYPD Brass?  Before you know it, they will have our police armed with Zen recordings to make everyone calm.

The Supreme Court deals another blow to the Obama Administration.  The unanimous ruling determined that the Clean Water Act “imposes substantial criminal and civil penalties for discharging any pollutant into waters” covered by federal regulations without a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Daily Update

Two polls are out today — one New York poll and one national poll — have conflicting messages, which is why I believe professional political polling is overrated.  The Siena Poll states the people of New York thinks the legislators should focus on corruption, no argument from me on the fact that corruption is a problem, albeit, we do not fully agree on how to end corruption.  (Term limits vs full time legislature which is a discussion for another day.)  The national poll, by Rasmussen boggles my mind when it reports that 50% of respondents think Hillary Clinton should keep running even if indicted.  I do believe some people are indicted when totally innocent, but have the 50% that say she should still run been reading the news?  Benghazi, unsecured server, the Clinton Foundation, the scorched earth approach to Bill’s “friends”, just to name some of the attributed dubious actions in Hillary’s life.  So, it is okay to have a trail of corruption before being elected, but once elected, people are very concerned about corruption…and expect those very same people to put an end to corruption.  

The Mayor’s problems are not going away.  Obviously, he knows where there is smoke there is fire, probably why he is returning $32,200 in campaign funds

Mayor de Blasio’s is dooming our children to a life of failure.  Our children deserve more than this Mayor is willing to give to them;  it’s time to end the pandering to the teacher’s union.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Monday is Memorial Day – an observance with an interesting history, and New York roots.  Waterloo, the official birthplace of Memorial Day, is celebrating the 150th anniversary of this important commemoration. Let’s not forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.

As we remember those who have served and sacrificed, we mustn’t forget that this year we will select a new commander-in-chief. Hillary Clinton thinks she deserves the role – what do you think is her biggest disqualification? What do you see in Donald Trump’s leadership that you believe makes him qualified to lead our troops? And which word do you think best describes President Obama’s reign as commander-in-chief? 

Those are the questions in our new Weekly Poll. I hope you’ll vote now!

Is there any end to Clintonian corruption? We’re learning more about Hillary’s risky email setup. Here are six Clinton contradictions exposed by the new State Department audit.

With these never ending scandals, it’s no surprise that Hillary —can’t seem to close the deal— with Democrats. 

Meanwhile things are looking up for Donald Trump, who this week earned the delegates needed to clinch the GOP nomination. 

No surprise here – wasteful government spending has exploded under President Obama. 

And no surprise here, either – liberal Katie Couric’s anti-Second Amendment “documentary” was —rigged— against gun owners. 

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day. 

Daily Update

The report released by the State Department yesterday is even more devastating than first though.  Watch what Peter Johnson, Jr. said this morning on Fox and Friends

The NY Post editorial board has this to say about the report:  The 78-page document (by an Obama appointee, no less) concludes that Clinton’s server and e-mail practices as secretary of state violated department policy — and she and her team lied about it repeatedly. 

The Washington Times stresses she failed to report attempted hackings.

Eleven states (so far) are fighting the edict from the biggest bully in America — our do it my way or I’ll cut your funds because I can President — by filing suit against the Obama administration over its directive to U.S. public schools to let transgender students use the bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity.

From PoliticoNY:  De Blasio took unusually personal role in fundraising for nonprofit.

Seriously, the Governor just now wants to do something within weeks regarding the deadly addiction problem. 

Thursday’s with Gipperten…we all need to laugh a bit.
