HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


Mayor’s PC Statue Commission hears from us!

Mayor de Blasio’s totalitarian statue commission, also known in official parlance as the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments, and Markers, held a public hearing today at Queens Borough Hall, addressing the city’s statues and monuments which he called “symbols of hate” including the iconic Christopher Columbus statue at Columbus Circle. A few Queens Village Republican Club members and friends were there to testify and some of their testimonies made the pages of the New York Times and other media outlets. 

“This is a country built on freedom and democracy, not bureaucrats telling us what is correct and what is not correct,” said Gerald Mattacotta, a 72-year-old teacher at Queensboro Community College.

Philip Orenstein, the president of the Queens Village Republican Club, questioned whether tearing down statues would start a domino effect of removing names from history books and curriculum. “To tear down our statues is just plain wrong,” he said.


President’s Message Dec 2017

President’s Message Dec 2017

By Phil Orenstein

This is a post-election message to look into the results, and more importantly to thank each of you for your courage, faith, and hope for a brighter future in America for our children and the next generation.

We campaigned and fought a valiant battle to wake up people from their apathy and ignorance. We united together for a great cause: the fundamental right in America for “we the people” to have our voices heard, to exercise our right to vote, and elect genuine capable leaders to represent us in our city government.  We campaigned hard and should be proud of our efforts. We fought so that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” recalling the words of our first Republican and one of our greatest American presidents, Abraham Lincoln.


Republicans: Don’t Hide the “R”!

Republicans: Don’t Hide the “R”!

By Rabbi Menashe Bovit

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

Friends,

I’m sure many of us are smarting in pain following the results of the recent election here in NYC and our Borough of Queens.

We not only saw the reelection of a disastrous, destructive, Marxist, abortion on demand, Sharia enabling, illegal immigrant and criminal welcoming mayor who ran without legitimate opposition, but also saw our own Joe Concannon nobly work tirelessly day and night, staying on top of every and any local issue, with real solutions to community problems to only lose an election by a two to one margin.

There was an election tactic employed by the Republicans in which the candidates would run under a number of slates so that the “R” wouldn’t turn off voters who then would supposedly vote for the candidate and pretend that he or she wasn’t a Republican.

Enough with the Victim-hood: Millionaire Athletes and Their Lost Cause

By Sylvia Thompson on 1 October, 2017

I must admit I have never in my life purchased a ticket to a sports event. I am not a sports enthusiast. But I am an American black citizen, and I have had it up to the gills with black people who embrace victimhood. I also highly resent my being expected to do the same in order to affirm my “blackness.”


President’s Message – Nov 2017

President’s Message – Nov 2017

By Phil Orenstein

We’ve said it many times before and will keep saying it until we wake up. Elections matter. Voting has consequences, and now we see many of the unintended consequences in our neighborhoods and our city in decline as a result of dismally low voter turnout in past city elections.

The one power we enjoy as citizens is the act of voting and thereby holding our elected officials accountable. If we don’t vote we lose our power as citizens in America. Nothing scares our elected officials and defenders of the status quo more than an engaged public exercising their power to vote. Our founding principles give people a say in their government, meaning that we must exercise our votes and our voices. Everyone needs to get out and vote and encourage our neighbors and friends to do so on November 7th.

Retired NYPD Captain: De Blasio Plan to Close Rikers Bad for NYC Neighborhoods, Says NYC Council Candidate

 October 10, 2017 
 

“The current City Councilman { Barry Grodenchik} has become an automatic rubber stamp in Mayor de Blasio’s war against New York City’s middle class citizens”,  Joe Concannon, the Republican/ Conservative / Stop de Blasio candidate running in this fall’s general election against Democrat incumbent Barry Grodenchik for a seat in this Eastern Queen’s Twenty Third City Council District, stated in a recent interview with me. 


Vote NO on the ConCon Con!

Vote NO on the ConCon Con!

District Leader, 24th Assembly District, Queens County Conservative Party

On November 7, New Yorkers will vote on two ballot referenda: Proposition 1 for a state Constitutional Convention, and Proposition 2, a Constitutional Amendment that would deny pensions to politicians convicted of certain crimes.

New York State’s Constitution gives voters the right to approve a Constitutional Convention every 20 years, and 2017 is such a year.  If approved, voters would choose 204 delegates to that Convention next year.  Those delegates would meet in April, 2019 to propose amendments, or a new Constitution, to be approved by voters, likely in November, 2019 but there is no Convention time limit, and to take effect the following January 1.


October President’s Message

President’s Message Oct 2017

By Phil Orenstein

Some say the glass is half full, some say half empty. I choose the positive. I say it’s half full, we are on track to winning elections, and our actions, words and prayers to elect strong Republicans, are making a difference!

Republicans are a minority group in New York City.  Outgunned, outnumbered, and hunkered down in our foxholes, we Republicans forgot what winning is all about. We are engaged in a battle for the soul of America, and winning the battle of ideas means winning elections. 

This battle of ideas, which in our history took the form of the slave system versus a free market society, began when the founders of the Republican Party met in 1856, in Philadelphia. They met where the U.S. Constitution was written, in order to restore it, return to its foundational principles, and to abolish the deep-rooted slavery system of the South, championed by the Democrats, which was spreading North and to new territories in the West.
