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.”

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

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!

Local Elections Have Major Consequences

LOCAL ELECTIONS HAVE MAJOR CONSEQUENCES

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’s Message to the Queens Village Republican Club

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.
