Year: 2019

Welcome to Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap-Up for July 12, 2019!

NEW YORK IS SECOND WORST STATE TO RETIRE

 The Democrats in charge of New York are making it into a place that is terrible for individuals to enjoy the golden years. A Bankrate.com study showed that it is the second worst state for people to retire.

 It was ranked the absolute dead last in terms of affordability, but scored poorly on other metrics such as culture, crime, weather and wellness. The Democrats are rapidly bleeding the state dry, as they become more radical in their central planning.

 “Where to live is probably one of the most personal decisions one can make because it’s not just about preferences, it’s also about the financial considerations that are associated with it,” said Mark Hamrick, who is the senior economic analyst at Bankrate.com.

 The only state that ranked even lower on the list than New York this year is Maryland.

 FEMALE SOCCER STARS DISRESPECT FLAG, DEMAND MORE MONEY

 The U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) disrespected their nation’s flag during a gratuitous and profane celebration following their recent gold metal victory.

 We congratulation them for  winning the gold, but then the women tossed the U.S. Flag to the ground so they could showboat for the cameras. They also drunkenly embarrassed themselves during the public celebration, showing no class and dignity, with Trump-hating lesbian Megan Rapinoe issuing a profanity on live television.

 These narcissistic ladies do not seem to understand the basic laws of supply and demand as well. The USWNT is demanding “equal pay” with their male counterparts despite the fact that they bring in far less revenue.

 “We want the same money that the men are making, exactly. That’s $5,000 minimum– that’s– that $8,000– bonus if you tie a game, and the $17,625 if you win. We want equal money,” soccer star Rich Nichols told CBS’ 60 Minutes.

 Forbes explains that the men’s World Cup in Russia generated revenues in excess of $6 billion, while the Women’s World Cup is only anticipated to garner $131 million in revenue for the four-year cycle 2019-22. The female soccer players actually are paid a larger percentage of the revenue than the male soccer players.

 These women are not only ignorant of our nation’s rich history, but also ignorant of basic economics. We will all be better off when their 15 minutes of fame comes to an end.

 BILL DE BLASIO’S WAR AGAINST CHARTER SCHOOLS

 New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is on the war path against charter schools, blaming them for having better educational outcomes than the government-run schools that have failed for generations.

 “I am angry about the privatizers. I am sick and tired of these efforts to privatize a precious thing we need — public education. I know we’re not supposed to be saying ‘hate’ — our teachers taught us not to — I hate the privatizers and I want to stop them,” de Blasio said.

 The administrators and backers of charter schools are fighting back, pointing out that minority children are well-served by their schools and attacking them hurts their opportunities to achieve.

 “While he is busy campaigning in distant states and denouncing Democratic leaders for their lack of ideological purity, charter and district educators will continue to work together to create brighter futures for New York City’s children,” said James Merriman, CEO of the New York City Charter School Center.

 “It’s sad to see de Blasio trashing charter schools to advance his political ambitions rather than thinking about the needs of the more than 123,000 children here in New York City — most of them children of color — who attend the charter schools he so reviles,” said Ann Powell, who works as spokeswomen for Success Academy Charter Schools,

 De Blasio, the self-proclaimed progressive champion of diversity and equality, is yet again failing miserably at achieving his stated goal of improving the lives of the downtrodden.

Daily Update – Sadly, New York is beginning to see the results of being soft on crime.

Here are the 5 best and 5 worst states for retirement, alas, you already know where New York State is listed.

Democrats have moved ‘too far to the left,’ says BET network founder Bob Johnson.

Seth Barron opines in the NY Post about progressive pol’s unpleasant surprise: Handcuffing the cops means trouble.

The Beat points out more of what happens when a prosecutor adopts a soft-on-crime, turn ‘em loose approach to handling arrests.

E. J. McMahon writes about NY’s dimming budget outlook in Empire Center’s blog. Bill Hammond explains Cuomo’s $1.7B Medicaid mulligan and Ken Girardin gives us an update on how NY’s unions are inflating their numbers since the Janus decision.

Something for Mayor de Blasio and the progressive movement should be aware of:  Study Links School Choice to Crime Reduction.

Speaking of education, here is more on what More on California Public Education Social Agenda.  

The marijuana industry, led by Big Tobacco, Big Alcohol, and pharma investors, are pushing Congress to rethink its position on marijuana and pushing for Congress to fall for the marijuana’s industry tricks to bring pot to your local stores.  Here is a Fox News report that is a must read – and take action on (contact your Member of Congress) – to prevent Congress from making a huge mistake.  It is up to us to protect our children and society from any more drugs.  Read what the main stream media won’t tell you about the problems that come with marijuana legalization.

National Review, whose founder, William F. Buckley, was a long time supporter of legalizing marijuana, has an article that Congress needs to settle the looming cannabis-regulation fight.  We don’t disagree that our 50 states cannot go on with a patchwork quilt of marijuana legislation, but, the very serious problems associated with legalization must be considered before Congress gives into the very influential marijuana lobby.

“I, ______, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So, help me God.” According to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, this pledge also includes advising illegal immigrants on how to avoid ICE officials when they are doing their jobs.

Daily Update

Kudos to Kearns!  Kearns takes NY to court over drivers license law.  The Buffalo News article includes a copy of the lawsuit.  Here is Erie County Clerk Michael Kerns on Fox News this morning explaining that granting NYS Drivers Licenses to illegal immigrants violates federal law.

How pathetic is this headline:  When Cuomo demands action, millions get wasted.  Unfortunately, it is so true and no one tells the emperor he has no clothes.

What is going on in California’s education system?  Calif. Teachers Won’t Notify Parents If Student Leaves School for Abortion.  When will parents wake up and take back the responsibility of raising their children?  What the California education system is doing is way beyond the reach of education, it is assuming the rights of parents and must be terminated immediately.  California Parents:  get you backbone and end this travesty before any more eradication of your family and your values takes place.

The Daily Signal has an article on how difficult it is to take back control in the education system.  In fact, they lost.  However, if we don’t do all we can to take back the education system, what will the results be?  We are the parents, we must demand that the education system is not there to teach their definition of family values and change the family values we hold dear to our hearts.

Pediatrician on How Transgender Propaganda Harms Children.

Why Military Families Overwhelmingly Support Education Choice.

Mayor de Blasio shows his true feelings; he “hates” charter schools.  Shameful that he puts the education of children last when he panders to the union leadership of teachers.

The CBO estimates that 17 million people would benefit from a federal minimum wage of $15., however 1.3 million people would most likely lose their jobs.  Let the free market determine wages.  Look at the states that have mandated a $15 minimum wage, it isn’t all roses, business have been forced to close and those who have lost their jobs are not making any money.  Here is the National Review critique of the CBO report.  And then there is this:  Restaurant Group Files for Bankruptcy After ‘Progressive’ Minimum Wage Laws Harm Profitability.  As we noted above, when you lose your job, it really doesn’t matter what the minimum wage is, you are not earning even $1 an hour.

Richard W. Rahn opines in the Washington Times on deleting history, forgetting the past.

Daily Update

Lawmakers call for exemptions from NYC’s controversial congestion pricing plan…just note this; the more exemptions that are granted, the higher the cost to those who are not exempted.  They have to make up the money to fund the MTA’s capital needs plan and the irony is that people who, for the most part, do not use the MTA will pay the price.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Parole Board did it again; “Fatal Attraction” killer, Carol Warmus has been freed from the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility.

Governor Cuomo, a lawyer, knows that the U S Constitution prohibits what is known as a “bill of attainder,” or a law that singles out an individual person for punishment.  Yet, in his zest to please his fellow democrats, he signed a Bill that could allow lawmakers on Capitol Hill to obtain President Trump’s state tax returns, in what has been described as a “workaround” after failed efforts by House Democrats to get the president’s federal returns.  While the Bill does not specifically single out President Trump, it is apparent he is the target.  If, NYS tries to hand over President Trump’s NYS taxes, rest assured, this will end up in the US Supreme Court.

Team Blas is still spending faster than the money comes in.  (Easy to do, when the money is not yours and there is no accounting for it…when you run out, you just up the taxes!)

The Beat writes about cheap rhetoric over real reform.  Poor Richard Carranza, if one really puts the students first, Richard Carranza is not the person one wants to head the NYC school system.

One has to give Governor Hickenlooper credit for being honest when he says this:  Hard to Fundraise When You Don’t Promise Free Stuff.

Priorities gone astray; San Francisco has lost its connection to reality.

Are chemical abortions having a negative effect on women?  Preliminary studies indicate yes, but unfortunately the study says more testing is necessary.

Robert Knight opines on the Washington Times on the Democrats’ open border strategy.

This should be interesting:  President Trump to Hold Social Media Summit.  However, it would be more interesting if both sides were present.  According to article, Twitter and Facebook have not been invited.  Personally, I would like to see them defend themselves.

Welcome to the Chairman Kassar’s Weekly Wrap-Up for July 5, 2019!

NIKE SHOWS THEIR LACK OF ECONOMIC PATRIOTISM

The multinational corporation Nike hates the country that made it into one of the most iconic brands in the world. They axed their patriotic sneaker series featuring a Betsy Ross flag emblem because washed up former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick told them it was racist.

Nike now takes orders from Kaepernick, a scam artist who has made millions based off of social justice hysteria. The Betsy Ross flag contains 13 stars in a circle with 13 red and white stripes to signify the original colonies represented during the founding of the United States. It is American as apple pie, which is why the anti-American communist Kaepernick hates it so much.

Patriotic GOP Senators Josh Hawley of Missouri and Ted Cruz of Texas are expressing their disdain with Nike as a result of their pathetic decision. Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced his state will be yanking economic incentives for the corporation. Conservatives would be wise to boycott their products as well.

ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ SINKS TO NEW LOWS

Radical socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is waging an all-out war against border patrol, as she hopes to demonize our nation’s heroes who are dealing with a national emergency spiraling out of control at the U.S. Southern border that the Democrats denied existing for many weeks.

Reports indicate that Ocasio-Cortez threw a tantrum outside of a migrant detainment center in Texas, screaming “in a threatening manner” toward federal officials, and refused to tour the inside of the facility. This didn’t stop her for posing for a photo op afterward.

“I see why CBP officers were being so physically &sexually threatening towards me,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Tweet.

“Officers were keeping women in cells w/ no water & had told them to drink out of the toilets,” she added, providing no evidence for her assertion.

Patriotic Republican Congressman Chip Roy of Texas called Ocasio-Cortez out for her dishonest demonization of border agents who work hard under tough conditions to protect the country from the Soros-funded invasion from the third world.

“I’m calling bullsh*t. And if there were one (unacceptable of course) example of an agent even suggesting such a thing, he or she would be removed,“ Roy responded to Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter.

“If there is a hint of evidence of this – please share it with me ASAP. But be specific, else stop the blatant attacks of our law enforcement overwhelmed because you and your Democrat colleagues refuse to acknowledge the crisis,” he added in a subsequent tweet.

The Democrats’ war on the rule of law, and America’s national sovereignty has reached a fever pitch. They will only get more insane and desperate, led by bimbos like AOC, heading into 2020.

NEW YORK CITY IS AMONG COUNTRY’S WORST-RUN CITIES THREE YEARS STRAIGHT

Democratic New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s unpopular leadership has turned New York City into a laughing stock, and the rest of the country is taking notice.

A study from WalletHub showed that New York City ranks among the worst-run cities in the nation for a third straight year. De Blasio’s leadership failed in terms of financial stability, education, infrastructure and pollution, health, safety and economy to put his city back on the list, as he is recognized widely as one of America’s worst mayors.

New York placed 146th out of 150 of the cities ranked on the list, which is actually an improvement from their ranking of 148 in the past two years. Perhaps de Blasio being away so much while campaigning for his pointless vanity run for the presidency is what helped the city improve its score.

Yale Law School professor David Schliecher blames de Blasio’s strict housing regulations for the city ranking so poorly.

“In many rich cities like San Francisco and New York, local governments have used their regulatory powers to make it difficult for private developers to build enough housing to meet demand,” Schliecher said.

But don’t expect de Blasio to change course, as he cannot even get out of bed promptly to appear on a television interview. New York City will remain in dire shape until he is termed out of office in 2021.

CONGRATULATIONS TO NEW REPUBLICAN CHAIRMAN NICK LANGWORTHY!

The Conservative Party of New York State would like to send our warm welcome and congratulations to newly named Chairman Nick Langworthy.

We look forward to working with him in the fight against Governor Andrew Cuomo, and in the many battles ahead to retake the State Senate.
