By Paul King Republican candidate for Congress, 5th District
A while back, I was told 2022 is a Perfect Storm for Republicans. A combination of events will enable us to win in very blue New York City. That sounds great, but it is important to remember that this Storm is not made of rainbows and sunshine; it’s made of disasters.
Relentless waves of crime, violence, and lawlessness. Soaring prices for food, gas, school supplies, and rent. Failing schools with administrators who focus on indoctrination more than education. A tidal wave of migrants and human trafficking at the southern border. Political weaponization of justice departments in Albany and DC. It is hard to believe all this is happening in America in 2022.
I am a former NYPD Officer and 9-11 First Responder Survivor. I was born in Brooklyn and raised in East New York, a mixed diverse community of all races. I attended and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in the top 10% of my class. I was also on the cheerleaders squad and to this day have a passion for sports by playing tennis.
I have always had a passion for law and justice and attended John Jay College of Criminal Justice. After the birth of my beautiful daughter Krystal, I took time off from school and worked in the U.S. District Court serving in Jury selection and Immigration. I eventually took the police exam because I had a desire to serve and protect my community. I was sworn in as a NYPD Police Officer January 25th, 1982 and it was indeed a proud moment of accomplishment for me at the young age of 23. I was assigned after graduating from the Police Academy to patrol duties and specialized assignments. In the eighties I was assigned to Queens Narcotics South as an undercover cop to clean up South Jamaica of its drug infestation which led to violent crimes, low quality of life, and home value depreciation.
The September 1st meeting of the Queens Village Republican Club was a combination GOP Candidates Night with a line up of America First Patriots bringing on the RED WAVE, and a victory party for Tina Forte, winning the Republican nomination for Congress, to run in District 14 against AOC. We were also treated to a special guest speaker, Josephine Aronson who presented an overview of the work of New York Citizens Audit to uncover the truth of the 2020 elections, who are calling for the decertification of the entire New York State 2020 General Election.
Tina Forte won the Republican Primary handily on August 23rd and is the Republican nominee in the 14th Congressional District! Congratulations Tina! The stage is set to square off against AOC in the General Election on November 8th. America is watching this race to proudly raise the Stars and Stripes in the northern section of Queens and the Bronx!
We are living in perilous times, but we can overcome. As Americans, we have fought world wars, beaten down despots, abolished slavery, and came together as one united America after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. America is the “Shining City on a Hill,” the beacon of hope to the world. When America is strong the world is stable. We are strong, we are united, and will be a stronger nation with Tina Forte representing us in Congress. She has a vision for America with fresh ideas. She is a freedom fighter who will restore safety, economic stability, and the American Dream for all of us.
As a small business owner, wife, mother, and grandmother, Tina understands the issues facing New Yorkers. Growing up in the Throggs Neck area of the Bronx, she learned the value of hard work and love of country from her father, a Marine Corps veteran, and her mother, an entrepreneur. Tina learned that through perseverance and hard work, she could achieve the American Dream.
Tina has been on the front lines fighting for us as a proud America First patriot. She stood shoulder to shoulder with small business and restaurant owners who were struggling. She joined parents in pushing for schools to reopen for our kids. She backed the blue, and was a vocal opponent to defunding our police. She was even part of lawsuits against Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio to roll back the unconstitutional executive orders that have destroyed our businesses and the lives of our children for almost two years. Tina Forte has fought for us here in New York, and she will continue the fight in Washington to stop radical socialists from destroying the American Dream. Tina is a bold, caring, wonderful woman full of heart. “Forte” means strong and Tina is strong, outspoken, and fearless. She is our voice and with your help, she will be our voice in Washington DC. The whole country is watching this race. This is our fight!! It’s a national fight worthy of your time, your effort, your prayers, and your contributions. www.tinaforteforcongress.com/
Tina Forte victory celebration at Fratelli’s in the Bronx Tina Forte won the Republican nomination for US Congress in New York’s 14th Congressional District on August 23rd and celebrated with family and supporters. The battle to save America and #FireAOC begins today! Join us!
Tina Forte is a Bronx native, wife, mother, and small business owner running for Congress in New York’s 14th Congressional District in the Bronx and Queens, against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. AOC is a hypocritical radical leftist politician who bashes capitalism while enjoying a lavish lifestyle, who slashes police budgets, while hiring private security for herself, who advocates for working men and women, yet killed the Amazon warehouse deal in her district losing 25,000 jobs.
You can go on ad nauseum about AOC, but this article is about Tina Forte and why we are hopeful that she will “beat AOC for us” as Dick Morris recently noted. First, a little background on her amazing story. March 2020 was the turning point for Tina, when she nearly died from COVID, after being denied her medical prescription for Hydroxychloroquine which Governor Cuomo had just banned in an executive order.

Our June 2nd Club Meeting was the Movie Night viewing of 2000 Mules, a documentary film created by Dinesh D’Souza, that exposes widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election, sufficient to change the overall outcome, with a special introduction and open discussion after the viewing led by Professor Nicholas Giordano. We heard from a couple of Republican candidates as well. Here are the videos of this incredible night. You can watch 2000 Mules or buy the DVD at SalemNOW.com.

Pura DeJesus-Coniglio, Republican for congress vs AOC
by Eileen Korby Candidate for Republican County Committee (AD 25/ED 17)
It’s Election Day in November and you go to the polls to vote. You tick off your choices for the major Republican candidates you want (President, or Governor, or Mayor), then you continue down the column and you see something disturbing. In the election for local judges, there are only Democrat candidates, and they are running unopposed. I am sure that this has aggravated every one of us. But why does it happen? How do those judicial candidates get on the ballot anyway?
The short answer (to a complicated question) is that the County Committee plays a big part in getting candidates for judgeships on the ballot. Every county in New York State has both a Democrat and Republican County Committee. Those who serve on the County Committees are unpaid, elected volunteers. It might surprise you to learn that, in Queens, there are currently over 2,800 empty seats on the Republican County Committee. Perhaps that is part of the explanation for Republicans being underrepresented on the ballot for local elections.
But take heart! Things are changing in Queens. The Queens County Republican Patriots, a non-profit organization, is helping dedicated Republican citizens to fill those empty seats. A number of people, my father and I among them, will be on the Primary ballot on June 28th for the Republican County Committee.
Why are we doing it? Because we can’t stand watching our city devolve into the lawless nightmare it has become any longer. We want to see judges on the ballot who have our safety as their primary objective.
That’s not the only thing Republican County Committee members do. The committee elects party leadership and votes on party policies for the county. On occasion, the County Committee chooses candidates for special elections. This occurs if a state official dies or resigns during his/her term in office. The importance of this cannot be understated. According to a 2017 report by Citizens Union, 33% of the New York State Assembly, and 19% of the New York Senate were chosen in a special election. Many, if not most, of those legislators then go on to win those seats in the general election.
I want to leave you with two thoughts:
First, it is extremely important not to sit out the Republican Primary and wait for November. The Republican County Committee seats are only filled in the Primary election. We need to build the Republican Party in Queens, and we need to build it with people who are true Republicans, dedicated to the conservative values that will save our city, and our country.
Second, I would like to plant a seed in your mind that YOU might like to serve on the Republican County Committee yourself. Don’t just shake your head in anger at the destruction you see. Get involved. Build and strengthen the Republican Party in Queens. The deadline may have passed for this June’s ballot, but there is next year. I will write again, in another issue of the Queens County Beacon, explaining the process. It isn’t hard, so please let that seed take root. In the meantime, you can check out QueensCountyRepublicanPatriots.com and start coming to meetings.
Lastly, I want to ask you to vote on Tuesday, June 28th, in the Primary. And if you live between 188th Street and 199th Street, and between 73rd Avenue and Union Turnpike, please vote for my father and me: Sol Korby and Eileen Korby. Thank you.
Sol Korby is a veteran who proudly served our country. Eileen Korby is a retired NYC public school teacher.
The May 5th Club Meeting featured Republican candidates and speakers that are transforming the USA and bringing on the Great Red Wave for the 2022 elections! Here are the videos of their stunning presentations.
America is a land of heroes. Not superheroes with capes, but everyday heroes who build better lives for their families through education, faith, community, and hard work. They are the living testament to the American Dream. That Dream will become extinct if progressives/socialists continue to have their way.
Throughout my life, I’ve been schooled in the American Dream – one of the great American traditions. My maternal grandfather arrived from Italy as a 10-year-old, was placed in an orphanage, and yet eventually started his own business and bought his own home. My father grew up on Relief during the Depression. After decades of hard work, he moved his family to Rockaway where he bought his own home, sent his three children to college, and became a civic leader. Most of my friends’ parents were working-class or blue-collar people working hard to pursue their American Dream. They were our heroes.
The sanctuary room of the Bellerose Jewish Center was packed on this rainy night for the April 7th meeting of the Queens Village Republican Club. Many people came to hear guest speaker Congressman Lee Zeldin, who’s flight from DC was cancelled due to the thunderstorms. But this allowed our other candidates, guest speakers and musicians more time to energize the crowd, which was the intent of the club meeting dubbed “Bring on the Great Red Wave.” Absolutely no one was disappointed. Here are the videos of the Republican candidates, speakers, and a moving musical performance.
“Until Old Glory Calls” by Lawrence Block
Rowen Giles on “Democrat Abuse of NYC Property Owners”
Paul King: Republican candidate for Congress – District 5
Tom Zmich: Republican candidate for Congress, 6th District
Danniel Maio: Republican candidate for NYS Senate, 15th District
I grew up in New York’s golden age during the prosperous Giuliani era when crime was low, quality of life was high, and we all felt secure walking the streets of our great city at any hour of the day. Our businesses were thriving. Education was a priority. The city I enjoyed and loved was safe and prosperous. Being raised in an immigrant family of small business owners who worked their way up the socioeconomic ladder with their sweat, blood, and tears, I truly believed that the promise of the American Dream was well within our grasp.
Now, in a very short time, everything has changed. Disastrous policies have led us to disastrous places: our small businesses are shutting their doors for good, the quality of our education has plummeted, and, most concerningly, non-violent and violent crime alike have shot to record highs. What caused this? Many of us already know the answer, and it’s obvious: electing the same kind of radical (or simply complacent) career politicians over and over again has emboldened them to create policies that are decimating the city we all love. The Bail Elimination Act, passed through the budget in 2019, has allowed all manner of “non-violent” criminals to be freed ahead of their court date without posting bail. This could’ve been a just concept, and it was in theory – rich people and poor people should not have different advantages under the criminal justice system simply because of economic status. But as we all know, this theory became an almost immediate disaster when put into practice. By stripping judges of their discretionary abilities, there is now no way to keep potential re-offenders in custody ahead of their court date. The result has been the categorical catch-and-release of criminals that has led to such tragedies as the recent violent assault of a toddler in Flushing, or the shoving death of Michelle Go in Times Square. Both of those offenders, like many others, had committed prior offenses and should not have been walking the streets of our city.
By Seth “Stavros” Breland Candidate for NYS Assembly District 25
Born and raised in Northeast, Queens, I have a love for my community, and I am proud of all it provides for its residents. Because of this pride, I want to fight for my neighbors and make certain Northeast Queens continues to flourish in all aspects; educationally, economically, and socially. For this reason, I am proud to run for the New York State Assembly to represent the people of District 25.
I am no stranger to public service. For six years, I served on the Community District Education Council 26 and became the student representative during the 2019-2020 school year. I visited classrooms across the area and elevated student, teacher, and family concerns to the council. In addition, I served on the Queens Borough Student Advisory Council and represented North Queens on the NYC Department of Education Chancellor’s Student Advisory Council. In 2018, I was appointed to be a United States Senate Page. My close work with all 100 U.S. Senators afforded me a wonderful experience and opportunity to assist in the day-to-day operations of the United States Senate.
Of course, I am aware that to truly serve my community, I need to be a part of it. I am a long-time tennis player and have been perfecting my game with a city organization since I was six years old. As the years passed, I progressed from player to volunteer coach. I was given the privilege to work with wonderful city youth, an experience that will always be dear to my heart.
This campaign will truly be a community campaign. We will encourage residents that have felt alienated and frustrated with our current elected and the corruption in our city and our state to join our movement. The incumbent, Ed Braunstein, voted for bail reform, voted for congestion pricing, and is part of that corrupt political machine. Mr. Braunstein promises his constituents one thing and then votes another way. He is beholden only to special interests and party leaders, NOT to the people he serves. Mr. Braunstein’s actions have led to unsafe streets, higher living costs, and an attack on our way of life in Eastern Queens. It is politicians like him, that made me leave the Democrat party. No longer could I sit idly by as the Democrat party was pulled left and passed legislation that has made life harder for every New Yorker. Too many people have left our schools, our city, and our state. It is time we fight for the soul of the city, for the soul of the state and we reverse the damage already done.
My campaign will be history-making in more than one way. Not only will I be one of the youngest people to ever be elected to the state legislature in history, but I’ll be the first Greek American and Puerto Rican American to represent this area. I am ready to take on this fight on behalf of this district. I am ready to take up the mantle of leadership to be that local leader who is responsive to his community, who is in his community, and who knows his community. Yes, I am young, but with my youth comes energy and commitment to the goals of this campaign. I will be a tireless advocate, addressing the important issues that continue to plague our home.
We will win and the only way we will win is if we are united in strength. I can’t do this without you. I am fighting to return power back to the people.
New York always has the potential to be the greatest city in the greatest state in the greatest country in the world. Over the first eight months of my campaign to become Governor of the Empire State, the people of New York have reaffirmed those ideals on a daily basis. Unfortunately, over the past fifteen years and four Democrat Governors, New York has lost its luster and the Albany swamp has turned our great state into a shell of its former self.
As a matter of fact, New York led the nation in population decline over the last year, resulting in a total outmigration of 319,000 New Yorkers, decreasing the Empire State’s population by 1.6%. This sobering fact is the result of a myriad of leftist policies that has seen crime spiral out of control, the highest taxes of any state in the country, less choice for parents over their children’s education, and a slew of mandates proving leftists only believe in the idea of, “my body, my choice” when it is convenient for their political narrative.
Over the past four years, I had the honor of working in The White House as Special Assistant to President Donald J. Trump. I learned many important lessons working for President Trump and for that matter, from my father, the greatest Mayor in New York City’s history, Rudy Giuliani. But the lesson that I think about every day is their tenacity driven by the belief that the United States of America is worth fighting for to our last waking breath. That’s why we NEVER GIVE UP!
Like President Trump and Mayor Giuliani, I will take on the leftist media and the Albany swamp to fight for the issues that are plaguing New Yorkers every day. For the purpose of this article, let’s dig deeper into the most pressing issue facing us all, crime. I pledge to tackle rising crime and the spiraling quality of life all across our great state by repealing cashless bail. From the Big Apple, where shootings have doubled over the past two years, to Rochester, where they hit the grim milestone of recording the most murders ever, “bail reform” has been an unmitigated disaster. Couple that with a narrative that we should defund the police along with Soros-funded district attorneys who choose not to prosecute most crimes, including many violent crimes, change must be immediate.
I have called for Kathy Hochul, under Article XIII, Section 13b of the New York Constitution, to remove New York County DA Alvin Bragg. It is obvious from his January 3rd memo to his Assistant District Attorney’s that he is reclassifying entire categories of crime. Bragg’s office has already altered facts on a police report and tried to entrap a police officer to sign said false report; thankfully that member of New York’s Finest refused to sign. As governor, I will hold DA’s and state employees who are complicit in rising crime accountable.
From now to November 8th, I look forward to addressing with you in more detail other vital issues including how I will bring about more choice to education by doubling the number of charter schools and creating an educational tax voucher program, how I will make New York a business-friendly and job-creating state again by cutting taxes and reduce regulation, and reaffirm my pledge that on day one, there will be only clear and honest health information from the governor’s office; no more unconstitutional mandates! I look forward to seeing you on the trail as together we will Make Albany Great Again!
On January 6, 2022, we kicked off the New Year riding a massive red wave into 2022 with a fabulous club meeting with some amazing speakers, Gavin Wax, the dynamic president of the New York Young Republican Club, and Barbara from Harlem, the “Godmother” of Black Conservatives. City Councilwoman Vickie Paladino administered the oath of office for the installation of our 2022 Club Officers and Board Members and shared stories of her first day on the job. We had a couple of young and impressive Republican candidates: Stefano Forte for State Senate, and Seth Breland for StateAssembly. Here are the videos and photos of the meeting.
Republicans and Conservatives need to support our candidates throughout the USA not only by our votes but also financially so we can regain control of Congress. Liz Joy is a special lady and a Republican and Conservative candidate running for congress in the 20th congressional district. The 20th encompasses all of Albany and Schenectady Counties and portions of Montgomery, Rensselaer and Saratoga counties. This district was just added to the NRCC’s top targets list and Elise Stefanik’s E-PAC has named Liz one of their twelve “Women to Watch.”
Our annual Christmas/Chanukah Dinner Party on December 2nd, 2021, was held at Pita Park Greek Restaurant in Floral Park. The festive dinner party featured a delectable three course dinner, the election of our new club slate of Officers and Board of Directors, our featured guest speaker, Andrew Giuliani who is running for governor of NYS, and special surprise guest, Councilwoman-Elect Vickie Paladino. We celebrated her astounding victory flipping a blue seat to red, and everyone had a grand time! Here are the videos of the guest speakers. Videos filmed and edited by James Doukas Productions.
General Club Meeting on November 4, 2021 at Bellerose Jewish Center in Floral Park, Queens featured Rob Astorino, Republican candidate for NYS Governor, Maureen Grey, neighborhood historic preservationist speaking on saving St. Joseph’s Church, and Professor Joseph Cheruvelil, speaking on the Conscience of a Conservative. Here are the videos of their intriguing presentations. Videos filmed and edited by James Doukas Productions.
Rob Astorino: Republican candidate for NYS Governor
Rob Astorino, Republican candidate for NYS Governor, speaks at November 4th Queens Village Republican Club meeting. He is the former Westchester County Executive and 2014 Republican candidate for NYS Governor. Having nearly clinched the 2014 race, and won the state outside of NYC, he outlines the path to victory in 2022.
Maureen Grey, guest speaker at the November 4, 2021 Queens Village Republican Club meeting, is a neighborhood historical preservationist, lifelong educator, and was a teacher at St. Joseph Parish Day School. She is leading the fight to landmark St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church and save it from demolition. She told the story of a beautiful church that many Republican club members were parishioners of since its inception.
Prof Joseph Cheruvelil: Conscience of a Conservative
Professor Joseph Cheruvelil, guest speaker at the November 4, 2021 meeting of the Queens Village Republican Club, speaks lucidly about the Conscience of a Conservative. The professor is a popular conservative luminary who taught many years on the faculty of the English Dept. of St. John’s University. His book “A Passage to America” is an autobiography of Professor Cheruvelil, who describes himself as “a Catholic in religion, a Hindu in culture, a conservative in politics, and an eclectic in taste.”
General Club Meeting on October 7, 2021 at Bellerose Jewish Center in Floral Park, Queens featured NYS Assemblyman Mike Lawler, Rick Hinshaw, discusses voting NO on ballot propositions #1, #3 and #4, Dr. Devi, Republican candidate for NYC Public Advocate, Tony Herbert, Conservative and Independence Party candidate for NYC Public Advocate, followed by a lively Q & A. Here are the videos of the entire meeting. Videos filmed and edited by James Doukas Productions.
Special guest speaker Rick Hinshaw
Rick Hinshaw discusses the urgency of voting NO on ballot propositions #1, #3 and #4, that threaten the integrity of our elections. Rick is the former editor of The Long Island Catholic and director of communications for the Catholic League.
Dr. Devi: Republican candidate for NYC Public Advocate
Dr. Devi is a scientist and physician working on the frontlines of the pandemic for the past year and a half, working in pain management and treating combat veterans. Very compelling story about why she decided to run for Public Advocate in order to humanize a bloated inhumane city bureaucracy. Supporters poured donations into her campaign coffers, more than enough to meet the threshold for a televised debate with Democrat opponent Jumaane Williams which will air on Oct 19th.
Tony Herbert: Conservative and Independence Party candidate for NYC Public Advocate
Tony Herbert is running for NYC Public Advocate on the Conservative Party and Independent lines. Jumaane Williams, the current NYC Public Advocate, is the Democrat candidate for Public Advocate, who as a City Councilman, refused to recite the pledge of allegiance and was a supporter of FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera. Williams is also a supporter of BLM and defunding the police. Tony is a community leader, a former radio show host who cares about the people of NYC, and is a voice for the voiceless.
NYS Assemblyman Mike Lawler was the only Republican to flip a Democrat State Assembly seat in 2020. Mike served as Executive Director of the State Republican Party and advisor to Rob Astorino when he was Westchester County Executive. We worked together on Rob’s past gubernatorial campaign, and we are thrilled to have him scheduled to speak at our November meeting as a Republican candidate for governor of NYS. Mike is our pro-police, pro law and order, pro-fiscal conservative voice in the State Assembly, and leading the charge to break the One Party monopoly in NYS!
The world is a dangerous place and that will never change unless we vote. New York City General Election candidates, Curtis Sliwa, Anthony ‘Tony’ Herbert and Vickie Paladino are the ones to watch this cycle. While some may act as if the elections are over after the June 2021 Primary, there is an upcoming General Election on November 2, 2021.
As a matter of reality, the Biden Administration is doing business with the Taliban. And today, America is less safe than it was just one year ago. The current Administration should have ended the war and pulled out of Afghanistan, but America shouldn’t have left entirely. On the ground, in person presence in Afghanistan is crucial to America’s ongoing safety. Instead, America’s population is left to contemplate the unknown. To add insult to injury, and without adequate vetting, tens of thousands of Afghan refugees will resettle in the U.S. at the taxpayer’s expense, in addition to over one million illegal migrants that have already crossed the U.S. Southern Border. It’s pretty clear that the war against America is not over, internationally or domestically.
Dr. Devi, who will be speaking at our October 7th Club Meeting, wrote the following letter to our club members and friends:
Dear Queens Village Republican Club members:
I am aggressively pursuing my goal of having a televised debate with Jumaane Williams. To force him to a debate, I must raise $115,000 by September 27th. As a candidate, I cannot contribute more than $6000 of my own money. My friends cannot contribute more than $250 for matching funds. If we have a TV debate, 4 million New Yorkers can see us side by side and vote. Without a debate, people generally vote by party, which is why Democrats traditionally win.
I have already raised more money than any Republican in the history of the Public Advocate position. The irony is that most of this money is coming from Democrats. I’m a lifelong Republican (26 years) but– perhaps because of our party’s infrastructure– it has been very difficult accessing Republicans to ask for support. I hope that this letter will help me reach our fellow Republicans.
I am scheduled to speak at the Queens Village Republican Club on October 7th, but to qualify for a debate on CBS, NBC, or ABC, I must reach the fundraising threshold by September 27th.
Carmine’s and its workers were targets of BLM attacks last night. Also attacked was Guardian Angel Joshua Penner, who lives in the area and was surrounded by BLM protestors. A video showsBLM protestors screaming a barrage of vulgar verbal and homophobic slurs at Penner, who remained calm
General Club Meeting on September 2, 2021 at Bellerose Jewish Center in Floral Park, Queens featured Curtis Sliwa for NYC Mayor and Vickie Paladino for NY City Council. Here are the videos of their inspiring presentations as well as an informative Q&A session.
Curtis Sliwa fires up the crowd at Sept 2nd meeting. “Vote in Curtis Sliwa—what do you have to lose?” The City Council defunded the police; took away the anti-crime unit, got rid of homeless outreach. De Blasio robbed the City of 1.4 billion dollars for his wife’s do-nothing ThriveNYC program. We need to “Save our City” or let it be turned over to Adams and de Blasio’s buddies -“Over my dead body.”
Republican NY City Council candidate Vickie Paladino spoke to members of the Queens Village Republican Club on Sept 2nd after a walking tour of her district in Whitestone and Bayside after the devastation caused by tropical storm Ida. She saw over 50 people who’s homes and basements were flooded, some with as much as 8 feet of water, and who have to pay out of their own pockets for the damage, as our government and local city and state elected officials are helpless and useless.
Q & A with Curtis Sliwa and Vickie Paladino. Questions about Deep State and RINOs impeding Trump, Councilman Eric Ulrich backing Eric Adams. Curtis asserted that “establishment Republicans are our worst enemies.”
The Queens Village Republican Club meets the first Thursday of the month. Place TBD
Coffee, soda, and cookies are served at 7:30 PM. The meeting begins at 8:00 PM. There are no general club meetings in July and August.
