THREE PARTIES ENDORSE DAVID BRESSLER FOR THE STATE ASSEMBLY SEAT IN DISTRICT 26


Crossroads in New York City and State Politics

Crossroads in New York City and State Politics

By David Bressler

I am a candidate for State Assembly in District 26, Northeastern Queens, because of my concerns with the state of affairs within our political landscape. We have a Governor who signed an executive order to allow felons to vote, a NYS Assembly that voted to make NYS a Sanctuary state, and a Mayor of NYC who wants to close down Rikers and put prisons in our neighborhoods. Our Mayor also eliminated armed guards in our schools that protected our children. This is not the city or state I so proudly was raised in. These are extreme progressive politicians who are making our city and state less safe and are not following the rule of law. That is why we are at a crossroads in local politics.

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. 


CITY COUNCIL: EVEN THOUGH I’VE LOST FRIENDS HERE’S WHY I’M RUNNING AS BLACK REPUBLICAN

CITY COUNCIL: EVEN THOUGH I’VE LOST FRIENDS HERE’S WHY I’M RUNNING AS BLACK REPUBLICAN

BY RUPERT GREEN 
SEPTEMBER 23,2017

The Black Star News, P.O. Box 1472, New York, N.Y., 10274 

Five months ago I stated my intention to run for City Council in District 27 Queens (St. Albans, parts of Hollis, Cambria Heights, Queens Village, Addisleigh Park, Jamaica, and Springfield Gardens) as a Republican.


Our Republican Citywide and City Council Candidates for 2017

Here is a handy guide to our outstanding line-up of Republican super-star candidates who will restore the lost greatness to our city, with a brief paragraph and the website for each of them: Nicole Malliotakis, Juan Carlos Polanco, Michel Faulkner, William Kregler, Joe Concannon, and Dr. Rupert Green. They have been in the news, at our meetings and rallies and you can meet most of them in person at our club meetings.


Letter from J.C. Polanco for Public Advocate

1743 Williamsbridge Road
Bronx, NY 10461

Dear Friend:

Earlier this spring, New York City’s political leaders decided to participate in a parade that was honoring a convicted terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera. This was the last straw for me to sit out another election without giving a voice to all of us who oppose such a radical left-wing agenda.


Stop de Blasio!!

Welcome to Hell…..

The day after an NYPD cop was executed, while our subways, roads and infrastructure collapses, while our city burns, Mayor de Blasio jets off to Germany to rally leftist protesters against the G-20. 

Have you had enough of de Blasio and the anti-American bureaucrats on the City Council? These are the same City Council members and elected officials who joined the mayor and Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito to march in honor of convicted terrorist bomb-maker, Oscar Lopez Rivera in the recent Puerto Rican Day Parade, who cheered on traitor Chelsea Manning, marching in the NYC Gay Pride Parade, and who tripped all over themselves praising anti-Semite, terrorist enabler Linda Sarsour, when she gave the CUNY commencement address.


Corruption and Mayor Bill de Blasio

Corruption and Mayor Bill de Blasio

By Joseph Concannon

The Lost Hope from Park Slope, Mayor Bill de Blasio has managed to annoy, aggravate and consume the time of endless investigators and the citizens of this great city far too long.  It is time for a clean break.  No matter where you look, de Blasio and his cronies have set off another blazing firestorm of reckless behavior and very unwise public policy.  Whether it’s the homeless crisis, the $10k debt per taxpayer, the building of prisons in every county, overdevelopment in our community, adoption of basement apartments as an affordable housing solution, his utter disrespect for those in law enforcement, mismanagement of city agencies, and his insanely absentee behavior in City Hall, de Blasio has proven to be a clear ZERO!  The arrogance of this man and the entire “I’m above it all mentality” is sickening.


Mother Nature: The Great Equalizer

Mother Nature: The Great Equalizer

By Joseph Concannon

“…The People of the State of New York have been subjected to a Corruption Tax.”

No one could argue that this last political cycle was contentious, partisan and filled with unrest and uncertainty.  The direction of the nation is about to do a 180-degree change that has some feeling unsettled.  Some of us find this refreshing and others are just downright combative and resistant as ever.  The Trump team is assembling, confirmation hearings have begun, and by the time you receive this newsletter we will have a new President.  Donald J Trump is now the 45th President of the United States of America.  Wow, what a year this has been!


Trump Wins!!

Trump Wins!!

By Frederick Bedell

trump-win-1The most unlikely candidate for president, President-Elect Donald J. Trump, has achieved a monumental upset against Hillary Clinton. He now has won the most powerful position in the world. And added to the fact he never ran for public office before. Yet he has done so because of his love for the America and the American people. President-Elect Donald Trump ran for the highest office in the nation because he believes America could do better for the hard working people who he believed were forgotten. Hillary Clinton lost in part because she ran against a man who had a greater vision and a dream for all Americans. Now is the time to unite America, regardless of what divides us with so many problems that need to be addressed. I believe President-Elect Donald J. Trump is the personification of his slogan which is,” Make American Great Again.” That is because he has a dream that he believes can be achieved. In closing let me wish President-Elect Trump success, for  “We the people are counting on you!”

All Politics is Local – Get Out and Vote!

All Politics is Local – Get Out and Vote!

Moses Maimonides

Moses Maimonides

We believe one person’s actions can make a difference. Moses Maimonides, a preeminent medieval Jewish philosopher, said it best: “Each person should see himself as though the entire world is on a delicate balance, and with one deed, he or she can tip the scales.” Although some of us may feel we are too tiny and insignificant to change the world, there is something we can all do to make a real difference: vote and encourage others to do the same!

Voting matters. Some elections have been decided by just a handful of votes. Republican David Storobin won a special election for State Senate in Brooklyn a few years ago by a mere 13 votes. The Father of the Constitution, James Madison believed that voting matters and helped establish the first political party, the Republicans, although it had no relation to the modern GOP established in 1854. In fact, he said it is so crucial, that “the government equilibrium of power would face collapse” without “an informed and engaged electorate.” Madison believed that all power in America ultimately resides with the people.

Republican hopefuls for the state Assembly and Senate and a businessman weighing a gubernatorial bid talked about policy issues at a Queens Village Republican Club Meet the Candidates night at the St. Anne’s Council last Thursday.

263-15 Union Tpke., Glen Oaks, NY 11004

Mark Cipolla hi resMark Cipolla is the Republican and Conservative candidate for New York State Senate in District 11 which is in Northeastern Queens. When asked about the reason he chose to enter the race, he said: “I am tired of seeing career politicians allowed to treat “their” office as theirs, not “ours.” I am tired of seeing career politicians run unopposed because the cost of running a campaign against an incumbent is perceived as cost prohibitive and the uphill battle too daunting.”

One of our biggest issues is corruption in Albany and as Mark has stated: “the first step in ensuring that our government operates ethically is to demand that our elected officials are challenged on their record when up for re-election. Without serious challengers we provide career politicians with immunity to act in their self-interest, not in our best interest.”

His core tenet is to make New York more competitive and create an environment where our businesses flourish. He believes in the need to create incentives for businesses to want to stay in New York and for others to be attracted to come into our state. He believes New Yorkers have been taxed enough it’s urgent to decrease the income tax for our state which hovers at 13% which is the highest for any state in the nation.

Jarret is an award-winning international relations, diplomacy and policy specialist, experienced in the public, private and non-profit sectors. He is also a philanthropist and social entrepreneur.

Ira Harris, Republican Candidate for New York State Assembly District 24

Ira Harris, Republican Candidate for New York State Assembly District 24

Read all about Ira Harris’ candidacy in the Queens Chronicle: “I want to listen to the people’s problems and be a candidate for the people, not a candidate for Albany.”

Ira Harris will be a featured speaker at the next General Club Meeting:
Thurs. Sept 1, 2016 at 7:30 pm
Knights of Columbus/St. Anne’s Council
263-15 Union Tpke., Glen Oaks, NY 11004

Ira-5Ira Harris is the Republican candidate for New York State Assembly in District 24 whose boundaries snake through Eastern Queens to Richmond Hill. He is running against David Weprin, a career politician, who gets re-elected due to the popularity of his family name. Although the doubters said it couldn’t be done, we proved the doubters wrong when our current Queens County GOP Chairman, Bob Turner defeated David Weprin in a special election and was elected to Congress a few years ago.

Ira is a father, an entrepreneur, 40-year resident of Queens, a job creator and a tax cutter. Ira is one of us. As a life-long small business owner, he has experienced the hard knocks and trials of daily life and the world of business that many of us have gone through. His triumph over adversity and debilitating illness, without the help of big government largesse, forged the conservative values in his life that he cherishes to this day. As a community activist he has been an upstanding role model and a problem solver for many people in his life. He is now ready to take the next step to be an outspoken leader and citizen representative for our community. He will bring much needed reform to Albany while representing our district and the needs of our community above the interest of all others.
