Weekly Wrap-up

This week we welcomed some of the world’s most violent, barbaric tyrants to New York – including Libyan lunatic Moammar Gaddafi (, Iranian thug and Holocaust denier Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ( and Venezuelan madman Hugo Chavez, ( – as the United Nations once again proved just how useless it really is.

So many brutal dictators, so many shameless oppressors – and yet who was apologizing? Our very own President, Barack Obama, whose reference to America as “my nation” brilliantly illustrated his self-involved approach to the world we live in.

Oh, and according to Obama, his country is not so horrible now that he’s President. Here’s the speech, if you’d like to read it – though we here at the Conservative Party don’t advocate such brutal torture:

And here’s some outstanding analysis from The Heritage Foundation, where they help us remember that as Americans, we have nothing to be ashamed of:

It seems that Gov. David Paterson is no longer on the Obama bandwagon:

But of course, the President still has plenty of supporters, including a big fan down in Cuba...

And even his fellow UN performer, Mr. Gaddafi, is an admirer:

Speaking of Cuba, let’s not forget the President’s plans for government-run health care.

This week we’ve seen Congress and the White House oppose a simple measure to let the American people (and their elected representatives) know exactly what is in health care legislation passed by Congress:

And we’ve seen the Obama Administration and members of Congress crack down on those who speak out against the health care “reforms” they’re pushing:

I’m sure plenty of President Obama’s friends at the U.N. would be impressed by these strong-arm tactics. I’m not.

That’s it for now. Have a great weekend, and check back next week for all the news and information, including new developments in the 23rd congressional district campaign.

Thursday, September 24, 2009

The 23rd Congressional Race has not been set by the Governor yet, but it still is very interesting! The Club for Growth did a poll they released to the public today and the Headline is "New Poll Shows Statistical Three Way Tie in NY-23 Special Election -- Scozzafava 20%, Hoffman and Owens at 17% Conservative Party Leads in Generic Ballot Test (emphasis is mine) Are you beginning to believe a "Jim Buckley" repeat?

We certainly need Doug Hoffman in Congress! He will vote the right way when it comes to the Health Care issue - While we could use his help in the Senate when Baucus stifles free speech we are certain he will be our strong voice against the left wing agenda of Speaker Nancy Peolsi. Karl Rove opines on Health Care as does Ann Coulter with her fifth installment:

The President didn't score well at the United Nations either. Maybe we all have a little "Obama Fatigue". Not a good sign with more than three years left...

As the NY Post states "New York may be heading down the same perilous path as the Golden State" and then ends with a question "Does any one care?" The Conservative Party has been calling for spending cuts and makes solid, reasonable suggestions in its Legislative Program since it became a viable political party. The answer is "Yes, we care" and more people are beginning to as well. We will make a difference, in the 23rd Congressional Race and throughout New York State.

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Obama was tested last week Did he fail?

The Census and now IRS have severed their association with ACORN, Do you thing Congressman Barney Frank will ever learn?

Here's hoping the voters in New York City have learned from past mistakes, however it doesn't look that way according to today's NY Post Editorial

Legislators apparently haven't learned that SPENDING is the problem:

The DCCC released a campaign ad for its candidate in the 23 CD It includes the 190 times DeDe Scozzafava voted to increase taxes.

On a lighter note, Thomas Sowell writes how Americans tend to be on the side of the underdog... nothing new to Conservatives. Gives us all the more reason to believe that our candidate in the 23 CD, Doug Hoffman, will be the next Congressman.

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Justice is blind, as the saying goes, but, today Justice was more than blind, it trampled the State Constitution. The highest court in the state played politics, and we will pay the price. As judicial conventions take place this week, my hope is that the delegates nominate people with integrity, people strong enough to review the law as written and not as they wish it had been written.

Monday, September 21, 2009

The 23rd Congressional Race is still making national news:

And ACORN continues to generate the call for scrutiny:

Why the need for "Greening of America"

So Mr. President, what is the definition of a tax?

Why is it that liberals try to stifle our speech

Excellent points made by George J. Marlin on the Constitutional Convention:

And Congratulations to Suffolk County Conservative Party for a big win last week:

Weekly Wrap Up

Kirsten Gillibrand officially became the Senator representing the far-left this week after her vote to keep funneling your tax dollars to this disgraced left-wing scandal factory.

Sen. Gillibrand was one of just seven U.S. Senators (including Bernie Sanders, the socialist from Vermont) to support ACORN. Even Chuck Schumer had the good sense to side with taxpayers on this one.

Here’s one take on this shameful vote from The New York Post:

The non-partisan watchdog group Citizens Against Government Waste is also outraged, and rightfully so. They’ve named Gillibrand and her fellow ACORN-ites the “Porkers of the Month” for September:

The U.S. House voted overwhelmingly to strip ACORN of all federal funding. Who knows if this vote will mean anything – it’s completely different from the limited funding ban approved by the Senate – but at least it shows that some people in Congress are paying attention.

Again, though, many of our elected “leaders” here in New York (including, of course, Charlie Rangel, who I’m sure has a soft spot for any group that doesn’t emphasize ethics) sided with ACORN and against taxpayers.

As The Wall Street Journal says of the 75 representatives who voted for ACORN ( “One can only conclude that the only way they'd defund the outfit is if it endorsed the war in Iraq or Afghanistan.”

Who is ACORN, exactly? Just before the 2008 elections, The Heritage Foundation gave us a look at ACORN’s shenanigans ( It’s worth a look now.

Don’t look for all this history in any coverage by the “mainstream” media. News liberals like Charlie Gibson are playing dumb on the ACORN question: (

And don’t forget ACORN’s most prominent supporter: President Barack Obama (

But perhaps we shouldn’t criticize the President. After all, opposing the Obama agenda makes you violent – at least according to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi:

Remember when Nancy Pelosi was pushed to the brink of tears after Democrats essentially accused President Bush of treason? When Sen. Harry Reid said our President had betrayed the nation? When President Bush was burned in effigy by anti-war protestors?

Neither do I.

At any rate, I have bad news for Speaker Pelosi. The Conservative Party will continue to “call it as we see it,” and speak out against bad ideas from President Obama – ideas like amnesty for illegal aliens. That’s on the horizon, you can be sure: (

I hope a great weekend is on the horizon for you and your family. Visit the blog all next week for the latest news and insights from the Conservative Party, and for our newest Call to Action. .

Thursday, September 17, 2009

Part Four of Ann Coulter's Liberal Lies on National Health Care: Karl Rove also writes again on health care:

Before everyone gets excited that the House voted to strip ACORN of federal funding, understand that this is different from the funding that the Senate voted for. The Democratic Congress is trying to diffuse an ACORN backlash by getting sound bites. Don't be fooled by their rhetoric!

Is the stimilus working? The authors of this article certainly do not think so

Another Obama decision that places America in a precarious position:

Pleeeese Nancy and your "ethical" Congress, protecting Congressman Rangle and ACORN, not listening.. you are the problem. True Americans concerned about the direction you want to drag our beloved country have the constitutional right to speak out. Those who marched last Saturday and those who attend town hall meetings, are not violent, we just want Congress to stop spending as if there was no tomorrow!

The 23rd Congressional Race is official. Congressman McHugh was confirmed on Wednesday and is supposed to resign his Congressional seat this week. The special election will most likely be Nov 3, 2009 and it certainly will be interesting. Will ACORN be a part of this race?
Click here: and here:

Washington is following this race: and we will keep you as up to date as possible.

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

Well isn't this interesting: What they should be investigating is ACORN!

Maybe the reason they are not is this:

The NY Post is right in calling for the spigot to be shut-off: and John Fund writes of ACORN problems and the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle calls for ending state funds to ACORN

New York's Jr. Senator still supports ACORN. Can you say one incomplete term, Senator Gillibrand?

Gee, the administration says Cap and Trade could cost families $1761 a year, can't help but wonder how much of an underestimate this figure is.

Finally, Cal Thomas calls for a "political lie detector" (now that would be an interesting piece of equipment) read more here:

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

While it did not take long for the U. S. Senate to vote on an amendment to strip ACORN from federal funding, (83-7) apparently NY's Jr. Senator, Kirsten Gillibrand thinks it is okay to help people break the law. The NY Post has it right

The NY Post is also right to expose Congressman Rangel's various tax transgressions and too bad that the Congressman is miffed! If the Congressman wants to keep his good name, that is entirely up to him. The Post reported truthfully.

Politico is reporting that President Obama is "failing miserably" and this before his administration announced a tariff on tires which could possibly lead to trade wars but does include health care reform.

The more we learn about his plans for health care reform, the more it is rejected by the American people. If it is anything close to England's we have even more to fear: Judge Andrew Napolitano has a good column on health care:

We can always rely on Thomas Sowell for practical advice:

Monday, September 14, 2009

There are times when reading the newspapers is rather unsettling: and Both articles are cause for concern. Especially when we have an administration that believes they are then only ones that know anything and refuse to listen to anyone but their insiders. We could rest easier, if we did not have concerns about the direction their insiders want to take our country.

We are encouranged by the "9/12" March on Washington. (See Sunday's post for a first hand report from Oneida County Chair, Julie Miller.) More on Saturday's March: and here and here Nothing like deflating the numbers and dishonest reporting (Lashing out/angry crowd): I shouldn't be surprised, after all it is the Washington Post. I wonder how they will report the 2010 elections:

Apparently the Democratic Party is beginning to distance its self from the ACORN controlled Working Families Party: The NY Post Editorial opines about the "stench at the WFP"

Fred Barns writes on Obamacare: and Rev. Harry R. Jackson, Jr. writes about "Stealing Liberty"

Sunday, September 13, 2009

Thanks to Julie Miller (Oneida County Chair) for the eyewitness account of Saturday's Rally in Washington, D. C.

The 912 March on Washington DC was the most phenomenal and probably most historic gathering of like-minded people in our nation’s capital. It was a peaceful but very passionate protest of the policies of the current administration and Congress. This was grassroots America at its finest. Everyone felt a deep connection with one another and freely spoke to each other as if they were family members gathering from around the country for a family reunion. This was Real American – not the liberal politician, state-run media version of America that they try to convince you that we are. This was the so-called “silent majority” – but silent no more! This was the representative voice of a majority of Americans, and as such does not qualify as a “fringe group,” as they are being labeled by the true fringe – the radical, left-wing.

The March began earlier than anticipated, probably because the streets just could not hold the sheer masses of people that were gathering near the starting point. We arrived at 9:57, and soon thereafter a colonial fife and drum group began the official step-off. People from all fifty states were walking shoulder-to-shoulder carrying signs and chanting phrases to voice their opposition to everything from government bailouts to government-run health care. We did not see any counter-protest groups along the way as anticipated, probably because they could not compete with a million-and-a-half people!

Early estimates were that there were 1.5 million in attendance. We heard another figure from the DC police of 1.6 million, and other reports of up to two million. We are insulted when we see news reports of “tens of thousands.” I have seen “tens of thousands” at a baseball game. The crowds I saw on Saturday could fill all the major league stadiums in the country! I have been in a crowd of hundreds of thousands before, and that is exactly what I witnessed. When we were finally gathered for the rally, I was positioned near the front of the crowd, about 12-15 people deep from the podium on the Capitol steps. When I turned to look at the crowd between the Capitol and the Washington monument, I would estimate about 500,000 were in that area. At one point during the rally an announcement was made for people to get off the mall because a permit was not issued for them to be able to gather on the mall. The most raucous chant of the day then erupted – “We own the mall! We own the mall!” Because of this restriction people were gathered on the side streets and I could not see them from my vantage point. But I do know that the city was basically closed down for hours because of this, so it would not surprise me if there were over a million people in attendance.

Every speaker had an inspiring message for the crowd. People stood for hours to listen to each message. The most moving sight for me was the variety of homemade signs throughout the crowd. It didn’t matter if they were artistically created banners or simply written statements on a small piece of paper. These messages ranged from anger to comedy, but all were a heart-felt gamut of emotional expressions that included rage, concern, and above all, patriotism and love of freedom. Crowd chants were frequently raised, and a favorite was “Vote them out! Vote them out!” while rhythmically pointing their fingers toward the capital building. It is going to be hard for Congress to ignore 1.5 million people pointing fingers at them and promising their demise if they are not heard. Another moving moment for me was the spontaneous singing of God Bless American or the National Anthems at different times during the day.

After the rally we had dinner at a restaurant that was filled with other event attendees, and everyone talked with each other across the restaurant as if we were all gathered for a family dinner. Next to us was a group from Florida, and on the other side of the room was a group from Texas. The Texans reported that 100,000 traveled from their state alone for the event, and the group we met were those from a chartered bus that made the 28-hour pilgrimage from Houston to Washington. People sacrificed and suffered to travel to the event, but no one complained because the cause was noble, just, and necessary. When asked about the hardships of the 28-hour bus trip, the Houston contingent said, “Freedom is not free.” Now that I think about it, this event had to be a great stimulus package for the travel and tourist industry! Before we left there were hugs all around and wishes for safe travel for our new family members.

I am still not fully recovered from the lack of sleep or the emotional whirlwind, so I would imagine there is much lacking from this report. Everyone can see the speeches on CSPAN or other outlets so there is no need to relay those. To get a true sense of the experience all I can say is, “You had to be there!” and urge everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to attend local and national tea parties, town halls, and other similar events. We know we are the majority and it is a critical time for us to stand up, to be counted, and to be heard. Our freedom depends on it.

Weekly Wrap-Up

Did you see this week’s episode of The Obama Show? Another prime-time speech, another round of vague ideas, insults, misrepresentations and (as Rep. Joe Wilson put it in an understandable fit of anger) outright lies.

With just two words – “You lie!” – it seems as though Rep. Wilson is the far-left’s (i.e. the media’s) newest villain:

Funny, I don’t seem to recall such anger when the Democrats booed President Bush during his 2005 State of the Union address. The Drudge Report posted this video:

Here’s another good take on the liberals’ hypocrisy when it comes to criticizing the President:

What worries me most about this is the absolute silliness of the whole thing. One member of Congress loses his cool during a President’s speech (in which the President was calling opponents of his health care plan liars, remember) and it’s a national news story.

This is the sort of thing that would have easily been a huge event on September 10, 2001. But today? With terrorists still on the loose, and with our nation painfully aware of how far those terrorists will go to kill Americans? With our troops in Afghanistan facing an increasingly desperate and dangerous situation as they fight the very forces that struck New York on 9/11?

We’re eight years removed from the horror of 9/11, and I’m afraid it’s beginning to show.

Here’s an overview of this 8th Anniversary of 9/11 from The Washington Times:

The blog over at Commentary Magazine has an excellent post about the dangers of making 9/11 a “day of service,” as envisioned by the Obama Administration:

Let’s honor this day by remembering those who were killed and their families; those who have lost their lives fighting the War on Terror in the Middle East; and those who work today to protect and defend our security – from our troops to our firemen and police officers here at home, in our communities and neighborhoods.

And if anybody tries to say that the War on Terror is useless, that the threats we face are exaggerated, that now it’s safe to scale back our military and relax our defenses, I have two words for them: “You lie.”
Lest we Forget. Eight years ago our lives changed forever, our prayers are for our Nation and those who suffered the loss of family and friends.

As expected, President Obama, gave up lip service in his Wednesday night address. Is the man deaf or so arrogant that he believes it is his way or no way?

Part two of Listening to a Liar by Thomas Sowell:

And part four of Ann Coulter's Liberal Lies About National Healthcare:

Quote of the day:
Have you ever noticed how statists are constantly 'reforming' their own handiwork? Education reform. Health-care reform. Welfare reform. Tax reform. The very fact that they're always busy 'reforming' is an implicit admission that they didn't get it right the first 50 times.

Tonight is President Obama 29th attempt to convince the American people that he knows best. If he dares to bring the late Sen. Ted Kennedy into his speech, I really think I'll have to buy a new television tomorrow! Former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey has the right idea in her column.

And if he really does this his poll numbers will continue to drop.

This won't work either:, nor will this .

Maggie Gallagher has another good article on "gay marriage rage" The New York State Senate, returning tomorrow, is eager to pass same sex marriage, which has already passed the Assembly. Remind your State Senator at 518-455-2800, that traditional marriage is "settled" law!

Quote of the Day

"Obama fancies himself tribune of the people, spokesman for the grass roots, harbinger of a new kind of politics from below that would upset the established lobbyist special-interest order of Washington. Yet faced with protests from a real grass-roots movement, his party and his supporters called it a mob -- misinformed, misled, irrational, angry, unhinged, bordering on racist. All this while the administration was cutting backroom deals with every manner of special interest -- from drug companies to auto unions to doctors -- in which favors worth billions were quietly and opaquely exchanged" -- Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer.

We hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day Weekend and spent some quality time with their families and friends and thanking a Veteran for our safety.

In case you missed the news release at mid-night on Saturday, Van Jones did resign. But the issue is far from being over.

Our economy is lagging behind Switzerland and this is long before they force universal health care on Americans. Do they not learn from the countries that have UHC? France is now reporting problems: If you only have time to read one article today, please make it this one: Do not be fooled by the "compromise" of a "trigger" in health care reform! Roll Call is reporting that the trial lawyers’ lobby, worried that tort reform could become a bargaining chip in the health care debate, is lashing out this week against efforts to include medical malpractice limits in health care reform bills.

You cannot have meaningful health care reform with out tort reform! We acknowledge that compromise is essential in getting legislation passed and most times compromise works. However, putting a "trigger" and not having tort reform is not a is capitulation!

The House already has and the Senate has to move legislation to raise the debt ceiling to above $12T, BEFORE health care is decided. Interesting what Senator Obama said on the Senate Floor when Dubya raised the debt ceiling.

Enjoy Thomas Sowell's article Listening to a Liar.

The NY Post editorial shines a light on the shenanigans of the Working Family Party it only shenanigans?

Weekly Wrap-Up

Labor Day weekend is here, and we all probably need a break after trying to keep up with Rep. Charlie Rangel’s ethics shenanigans. Where to begin?

The National Legal and Policy Center is a good place to go for a look at all of Rangel’s past and present scandals:

This story is getting plenty of coverage across the state, from New York City ( to Buffalo, where there are calls for Charlie’s resignation:

Not that Charlie thinks anybody is “smart enough” to question him:

The Wall Street Journal ( calls Rep. Rangel “The Absentminded Chairman.” How does a person “forget” that he has millions of dollars here and there?

Apparently Rep. Rangel’s staff is as forgetful as he is when it comes to their personal finances:

Don’t forget that Rep. Rangel isn’t just a huckster and a fraud – he’s also a hypocrite. He helps write the tax laws he refuses to follow – and he’s even proposing new penalties against people who make mistakes on their tax forms:

So how will Charlie try to “wrangle” his way out of this? By giving money to the right people, of course – namely, to the Democrats on the House Ethics Committee... now known as “Charlie’s Angels” (

I guess Rep. Rangel remembers how much money is in his PAC bank account when it’s time to hand out contributions.

Rangel has also been quite generous to Rep. Mike McMahon of Staten Island, who is now under pressure to give the tainted money back to Charlie:

Rep. Rangel is also following the Paterson Strategy by playing the race card. The Post wanted my thoughts on this. Read the article to see what I had to say:

So far, Charlie is in the clear – even though President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi promised a new era of ethics and accountability in Washington. Right now, Pelosi won’t say a word:

And the Democrats are standing by their man, too – for now:

What do you think about the Charlie Rangel saga? Should he stay or should he go? That’s the question in this week’s poll.

Rep. Rangel is probably counting on President Obama to take back the spotlight next week with yet another primetime speech next week. Until then, let’s all enjoy some baseball, football or tennis this weekend. Enjoy the holiday, and check back here next week!

Thursday, September 3, 2009

Well isn't this a surprise... As Chairman Long stated in the article "Rangel is playing the race card. It's clear that the congressman is trying to galvanize the minority community that this is 'us against them.' It's going to backfire. A majority of people will see through this."

Is Congressman Rangel trying to influence his peers?
The Washington Post, certainly not considered a conservative paper, says it's about time for Charlie to "step aside as Chairman of Ways and Means"

Be prepared for an increase in property taxes:

The New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms has an article on the 23rd CD:

And more on the one issue that has dominated the last six months, or according to some the last 40 years. (The Gipper does not want to win this one) and The Politico has an article about "selling out doctors to pay off trial lawyers" and Ann Coulter has her third article on Liberal Lies About National Health Care: And if all of these articles don't convince you that any bill that is pending goes to far to change our health care system, read this one from the Telegraph.Co.UK

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

The NY Post Editorial is calling on Rangel to be fired, but who will do the firing? His constituents? Hardly. May we remind Speaker Pelosi of her promise to have the most ethical Congress ever, what is she waiting for?

How will new Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor cast her decision on what will be a landmark case?

More on the 23rd Congressional race: Dede owns stock in her brother's company and here that owes thousands in back taxes despite her distancing herself from the company. And just in case you missed this one:

Positive words from The Hill regarding our candidate, Doug Hoffman.

Michelle Malkin has a link to Bill Ayers speech from 2006 to remind us of his radicalism and his ties to Obama. Good background piece to prepare parents for Barack Obama address to schoolchildren on September 8. As one pundit suggested, it may be a good day to keep your children home from school.

Good article in WSJ by Congressman Tom Coburn:

Dennis Prager's article "The Bigger the Government, the Smaller the Citizen" is also a good read.

Ken Blackwell writes "We are in danger of repealing Reagan’s greatest achievement. Hundreds of millions of people in eastern and central Europe owe their freedom to Reagan’s inspired leadership in the eighties. Today, seventy years after the war that brought death and despotism to this vast region, their freedoms are increasingly threatened."
So are ours under this administration.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

The 23rd Congressional District is in the news again. Why won’t Dede Scozzafava and Bill Owens sign the ATR anti-tax pledge? Watch Doug Hoffman at his press conference here:

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle is looking for Tax Rescuers We welcome them to our quest.

Just when you think the Nanny State has done all the damage it could do, up pops another way to discourage businesses from being business friendly. File this one under “Government Gone Wild”

Also under the absurd is the idea the Eliot Spitzer might run for statewide office again:

Thomas Sowell has another column that every American should read and when finished they should forward to Juan Williams at NPR or Fox News.

Drop VP Cheney a note of thanks for speaking out
And Ralph Peters also:

While we are thanking people who consistently speak out for our safety, we can add Ambassador John R. Bolton who also has a column today in the WSJ. In fact, you will be able to thank him in person on October 29 at our Fall Reception! Watch your mail for your invitation which will be coming soon.
