Illegal Immigrants May Supercharge NonCitizen Voting

With 5M registered voters in NYC, noncitizens could rapidly become a 1M voting bloc representing 17% of the city.


Video: Paul Graziano’s Presentation on the City of Yes


The April 4th meeting of the Queens Village Republican Club featured Land Use and Zoning Expert, Paul Graziano who presented a comprehensive analysis of the “City of Yes,” the citywide zoning proposal by Mayor Adams. This insidious proposal could subject our residential communities to massive overdevelopment and commercial expansion. The “City of Yes” threatens to destroy single-family and two-family zoning and transform our peaceful residential communities into busy commercial zones, escalating noise, traffic, crime, and congestion. This proposal is not about affordable housing. It will destroy residential communities and put an end to private property ownership. We must say NO to the City of Yes!

Thank you to Michael Ferrara and James Doukas our videographers!

What’s Going on in Albany!


By Dr. Laura Schmitt Schwartzberg, QVRC 3rd Vice President

February 5th was Lobby Day at our State Capital in Albany. Elena Chin, Queens County Chapter Chair of Mom’s for Liberty (M4L), fellow QVRC Board Member James Coppola, and I joined M4L members from across our state to voice concerns about consequential imminent legislation, not mentioned in the mainstream media. Our group assembled a table in the main corridor to lobby all those passing through. Elena, James, and I headed to each legislator’s office, hitting every floor. Note to self- wear sneakers next year!

The first set of bills deals with the hijacking of parental rights. Bills A00276B, S00762A and A06761 give children of any age the right to consent to medical treatment and care without parental consent or knowledge. Some versions mention homeless or runaway, but don’t define terms.  Any angry child who doesn’t like hearing “no” can slam the door behind them and claim to be a runaway. Homeless doesn’t mean orphan. Existing legislation already allows for the treatment of children in emergencies, by licensed physicians without parental consent. Noteworthy, throughout the new legislation “licensed physician” is replaced by PA’s and numerous ancillary healthcare workers with less rigorous educational certification and training. While simultaneously omitting a child’s most fervent protector, the parent, it allows the clueless minor to make life altering decisions in consultation with someone who didn’t even go to medical school!  This substitution and license creep wasn’t made to protect children. It’s there to increase the number and types of people who can override a parent’s will.

 Curiously, the word “care” was newly inserted adjacent to every existing word “treatment.” It isn’t there to make you feel warm and cozy. Treatment is to cure, heal, make better. Medically speaking, “care” has an opposite intention. Canada’s assisted suicide laws are medical care. They are not intended to make you better; they are intended to make you dead. When assisted suicide laws pass here, this law will be situated to allow non-terminally ill children, possibly suffering depression, to end their lives.  Meanwhile, “care” gives legal cover for gender transitioning interventions and procedures not meant to heal. Medical research does not confirm that transitioning a child is healthy for them. Technically, it is not a treatment. These are healthy children. This is “care.”

A parent’s right to know is also blocked! What about adverse reactions, drug interactions, duplication of medications? Shouldn’t parents have input to provide family histories and comorbidities absent from electronic medical records?

We opposed A04576 and S01532, transgender policy allowing biological males to compete with girls in competitive sports. Title 9 invested separately in women’s sports, acknowledging biology. It didn’t promote co-ed sports to achieve equality.  Feelings have no effect on the chromosomal programing of every cell since conception, which gives one sex a competitive physical advantage over another. Additionally, girls should have the right to privacy and safety in bathrooms and locker rooms. We groom girls to become victims when we teach them to ignore their gut feelings and be ashamed when they feel unsafe.  

We achieved bipartisan support for bills A00423 and S01037 protecting children from data mining.

Some questioned our opposition to the proposed state ERA bill. “What is a woman?” I asked. If you can’t define a woman as a biological female, ERA becomes an oxymoron. A feminist would be a moron to approve. It strips women of rights, bestowing them upon biological males. Attempting to protect elderly, this ERA encompasses “all ages.”  Tell your child to go to bed and get the retort, “No, I have rights!” Does this reiterate a child’s right to medical treatment and “care?”

I’m not surprised that many of these bills are poorly written or loosely read.  When we got to the 6th floor, the back offices all reeked of pot!  My parenting impulses exploded. I opened their doors as I knocked, scolding them like I would any stupid teenager caught doing the same! “You have one day a year to meet here with constituents and you have the audacity to disrespect us like this! Can’t you refrain one day and pretend you are doing the job we’re paying you to do!  You should be ashamed of yourselves!”

Our day brightened as we spoke with some stellar common-sense representatives. The standouts among these are Lester Chang AD49 Brooklyn, Doug Smith AD5 Suffolk County, and Anil Beephan AD105 Duchess County. These three are astute, steadfast, and brave. They understand what is at stake. Preserving parental rights is key to protecting children. Unfortunately, they are the minority. They stressed the importance of flipping 2 to 3 seats. They need help and we need more like them!




US SENATE CANDIDATE CARA CASTRONUOVA, BOXER & JOURNALIST, WILL KNOCK OUT DONKEYS & RINOS!

What do I stand for? America First. Protecting the Constitution at all costs – that includes free speech to the point of the most offensive kind. The Second Amendment, which was created to PROTECT US AGAINST A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT, is a God-given right and must be protected at all costs. We must close our borders and take care of our own men and women who have been abandoned.
