Two days before Christmas in 1973, it was cold and beginning to snow when I set out from Great Lakes Illinois at 6 a.m. to get home to see my boys on Long Island. I was in the U.S. Navy then. My boys, Tommy and Bobby, were in a foster home in Levittown because my wife had left us. I was in the Navy and had not enough money to fly home. I had always kept my promise to my boys and didn’t want to disappoint them. Roger, a naval buddy, had a car and could take me as far as Ohio. I could get a Greyhound bus there, which would cost less.

Re: Election Integrity Petition
Dear NYS Legislators:
We, the undersigned, are Queens County Committee Members. Ensuring that our elections are fair, accessible and secure is essential to restoring the American people’s faith in our electoral process and democracy.
We are reaching out to you to follow up on the status of the Election Integrity Petition dated October 26, 2021, which was forwarded to the New York State Legislature by the Queens County Republican Patriots (“QCRP”) on or about October 27, 2021 via email and certified mail. The petition was signed by more than 500 constituents who have expressed legitimate concerns about election fraud and are requesting that the Legislature adopt measures and safeguards to protect the integrity of the election process in New York State. (See attached petition letter, without signatures). It appears that our constituents’ concerns have fallen on deaf ears since the Legislature has not even had the courtesy to acknowledge receipt of the QCRP petition.
We would like the New York State Legislature to take judicial notice that public officers, including but not limited to elected officials from all three branches of government, take an oath of fidelity to the Constitution or office they represent not to a political party or agenda, and they are expected to uphold and defend it. The fact that the New York State Legislature has failed to respond to the petition and address the grievances of the constituents who signed the Election Integrity Petition is a dereliction of duty and a flagrant breach of their oath of office.
Thank you in advance for addressing the concerns of We The People who are demanding that the New York State Legislature make efforts to protect election integrity in order to avert future voter fraud. Please feel free to contact the QCRP for further discussion. The Website is: https://queenscountyrepublicanpatriots.com/
We are looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. We would greatly appreciate acknowledgement that you have received our letter and its attachment. God bless America and New York. In God We Trust!
With a spirit to serve as Queens County Committee Members,

I’d like to dispute the claim that the widely ballyhooed red wave was a mirage, at least in New York State where we saw Republicans win almost every closely contested congressional race. Four congressional seats flipped from blue to red, including the seat of Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney the formerly powerful chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). In deep blue New York, Republican candidates won 11 critical House races securing the advantage for the Republican majority to retake Congress. New York’s great victory of 2022 is the firing of Nancy Pelosi. The greater victory is that in an overwhelmingly blue state, where Democrats conspired to win by any means necessary, the integrity of our elections was protected, and New York State became the shining light of democracy in America and won a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

Dear Clergy, brothers, friends, and family:
This letter/article I wrote about Veterans Day next week is now published in the Queens Gazette, Queens Courier, Bayside Times and the Queens Chronicle.
Please remember November 11th is Veterans Day-a day to honor all who have served our country and sacrificed their lives for the greater good. Americans really should take a pause on that day to honor our brave men and women. For more than 246 years, many have fought and died for all those freedoms we all hold most dear. I myself have served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam era and was proud to have done so. Now to honor our veterans today I am a member of the American Legion Post #103 in Douglaston, which is dedicated to helping fellow veterans. I am also a member of The Catholic War Veterans & Auxiliary in Glen Oaks Village which also helped fellow veterans. We should salute our brave men and women who are now serving this great nation, and who are now serving in the most dangerous parts of the world. Those who served have done so at a great personal sacrifice, many having to leave family, friends, and jobs for the greater good. I hope and pray this Veterans Day that anyone who is able to will fly the American Flag of this great nation in their honor. Also, if you can, call a veteran you might know and thank them for a job well done and thanking them for their service. May God bless these brave Americans and may God bless America this Veterans Day.
Sincerely Yours, Frederick R. Bedell Jr. Bellerose, N.Y.
Become a Poll Watcher for your local Republican candidate on Election Day and report any election irregularities you witness or voter fraud to NY Citizens Audit on the report form: “Citizens Election Integrity Report”
We’ve heard way too many reports of fraud and violations every Election Day and Primary Day for years. Registered voters who find they are not listed, voters denied a ballot, candidates and volunteers electioneering inside the poll site, Poll Workers and Interpreters telling voters who to vote for, someone who already voted in your name, Poll Sites not open on time, Republicans given Democrat ballots in Primaries, operatives voting at multiple sites, sample ballots on display with pre-selected candidates, registered voters given an affidavit ballot, and many more irregularities reported. Now we have a place to report these violations, a statewide team that is making a difference to secure the integrity of our elections. NY Citizens Audit is collecting these reports to mount legal challenges in every County of NYS. They are working to expose the truth and stop the rigging of our elections. If you see any election irregularities, please fill out the Citizens Election Integrity Report form. NY Citizens Audit: https://auditny.com/

The USA is being destroyed from within. Many Americans are afraid to talk about politics and conservative values for fear of being silenced, censored, canceled, or called White Supremacists and ULTRA MAGA terrorists by the left. IT IS TIME FOR US TO PUT AMERICA FIRST OR AMERICA WILL END! The survival of civilization and the USA is on the ballot.
New Yorkers who care about the future of our city and state need to turn over their ballots and VOTE NO on all four Ballot Proposals on Election Day, November 8, 2022. Three of these four ballot measures are the work of former mayor, Bill de Blasio and a small minion of leftists obsessed with racism in America who propose to radically overhaul the NYC Charter.
You’ve heard the expression “don’t mess with Mama Bear.” Mama Bear is endowed with the most powerful instinctive protective force in nature to protect her cubs. Today we are witnessing the rise of Mama Bears standing up in the political arena throughout America to protect their kids, families, and neighbors from the destructive power of Democrat run government with the ensuing rise of crime and inflation, open borders, woke indoctrination in our schools, lockdowns and vaccine mandates, censorship and trashing of our Constitutional rights.
The Queens Village Republican Club meets the first Thursday of the month. Place TBD
