We the citizens of Eastern Queens are mad as hell and we want answers!!!

It was reported that 1,800 people affected by the 9/11 terror attack have asked President Biden not to attend the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, unless he orders the release of documents they claim show links between the Saudi government and al Qaeda. Well I totally agree. There are those who view this to be too extreme and that we need to move on. But I’m greatly troubled by the belief of some who think we need to move on, that there is is too much talk of 9/11 20 years later.
We have lost thousands of good people including 343 Firefighters who gave their lives to save the many. Not to mention the many first responders who have died and the many who are dying from the effects of the attacks and many more who will suffer in the future. A husband lost his wife, a father lost his son, a mother lost her daughter and friends lost friends. How does one forget? Future generations need to know what happened on that day of evil and who was responsible, for when we disregard history, we are doomed to repeat it. Now, to President Biden, I say do the right thing!
Now, to my fellow Americans, remember what happened on 9/11 and let’s not forget. Remember this also, in the days and months following 9/11, our country was bathed in American Flags as citizens mourned the incredible losses and stood shoulder-to-shouldered against terrorism. Sadly, those flags have all but disappeared. Our patriotism pulled her through some difficult times and it shouldn’t take another attack to galvanize us into solidarity again.
Our American Flag is the fabric of our country and together we can prevail. Fly the American Flag of any size on 9/11; and, in all honesty I believe that all Americans should fly the flag year round. However let’s start flying the American Flag on every September 11th. I call for this, being a veteran of the U.S. Navy era of the Vietnam war, a member of the American Legion Post # 103, a member of the Queens Village Republican club, Grand Knight of St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council # 5911 in Douglaston and a member of the Catholics War Veterans. Now that being said, I am thanking everyone for your participation, and may God bless you and may God bless America,

We held a rally and press conference on the steps of Queens Boro Hall in 2014 to protest King Cuomo’s despicable remarks that conservatives are not welcome in New York State. Remember when he said the following. Well, karma’s coming for him.
Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are.

Re: Revision of New York State Election Law Sec. 6-144 and update of New York City Board of Elections equipment and rules.
Dear Senator Myrie,
Anita Uppal and I were candidates for Republican State Committee in the 24th Assembly District in Eastern Queens, NY running in the June 22nd Primary Election.
We met all the legal signature requirements and abided by the NYC Board of Elections petition rules, but our petition volumes were invalidated because both volumes were time-stamped with the same time in minutes. I am requesting a revision to update rules and equipment to include seconds in the appropriate section of New York State Election Law, and an evaluation of NYC Board of Election’s arcane rules, in order to achieve a more fair and honest election and ballot access process for candidates and voters alike.

“It is our mission along with more than 2,000 similar oriented charities, civic and religious groups throughout America to remember our fallen U.S. military heroes, honor veterans and those who currently serve in our armed forces and teach our children about the sacrifice these great heroes have made to defend and protect our great nation’’, stated Karen Worcester, the executive director of Wreaths Across America, as we began, from my New York office to hers in Maine, our telephone interview last week.
A crowd of 200 Republican Patriots gathered for a beautiful day of wild excitement and fun at Alley Pond Park on Sunday July 25th. Instead of the expected forecast of rain and clouds, the gathering of enthusiastic Republican activists was blessed with gorgeous sunny skies! In addition to Curtis Sliwa, Rob Astorino for NYS Governor, Andrew Giuliani for Governor, Tony Herbert for Public Advocate, Vickie Paladino for City Council, Scherie Murray, and newly elected Republican State Committeeman, Joe Concannon regaled the crowd and brought everyone to their feet.

Curtis Sliwa takes on AOC, DSA, and Tiffany Caban, in Astoria to Woodside, Queens
Small businesses get walloped with fines of $100 in Astoria, in this case for a merchant trying to sell watermelons on a hot summer day. There will be no hidden taxes on NYC small businesses with Curtis as mayor!
Curtis pledges to take out AOC and DSA. Come along for the Republican ride into Astoria, Queens where the immigrant community loves Curtis Sliwa because he has been fighting for them for the past 40 years. He is one of them!
Republican mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa joins Queens GOP representatives in calling for overhaul of city’s Board of Elections
By Gabriele Holtermann Posted on July 7, 2021
After the Board of Elections (BOE) bungled last week’s preliminary ranked-choice voting calculations and mistakingly added over 130,000 test votes to the original ballot count, Republican mayoral nominee Curtis Sliwa called for election integrity reform outside the Board of Elections’ office in Queens on July 6.
Alongside Republican gubernatorial candidate Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, local Republican candidates and community leaders, Sliwa opened the press conference hosted by the Queens County Republican Patriots pointing to the building behind him.
“Democrats are now experiencing what all voters have experienced, the lack of ballot integrity,” the Guardian Angels founder said. “This particular office was responsible for processing 130,000 test ballots in with all the other ballots that had been filed on election day, that didn’t even include the absentee ballots that they started to count on Monday.”

Re: St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church

Dear Ms McHale:
We write to urge speedy action on the Request for Evaluation submitted by Rene C. Hill to landmark
the complex of buildings in Queens Village known as St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church. This set of
mostly wood-frame, wood shingled buildings built cohesively over a period of almost 100 years and
situated on a rural-looking large block of land is too precious to lose, but is currently threatened with
