(RepublicanWire.org) – Appearing with MSNBC’s Al Sharton, Hochul pushed back against Republican worries about crime only days head of the midterm elections. Hochul even referred to Republican critics at one point as “master manipulators.”

“These are master manipulators. They have this conspiracy going all across America trying to convince people in Democratic states that they’re not as safe. Well guess what? They’re also not only election deniers, they’re data deniers,” she said.

The governor blasted states with less strict gun laws and blasted her opponent, Republican Lee Zeldin, for coming from Long Island, where crime has been down.

Safer spaces today, Hochul claimed, are Democratic-controlled states.

“Safer places are the Democratic states,” she said.

Crime in New York’s subway system is up by 41% as of Oct. 17, CNN reported, citing statistics from New York Police Department.

With crime on the rise nationwide, 64% of Americans blame “woke politicians” for the issue, according to a recent Harvard-Harris poll. Fifty-two percent of Democrats, 75% of Republicans and 60% of independents blamed “woke politicians” rather than “other factors” for the nation’s historic increase in crime.

Hochul has been blasted over a remark she made during a debate with Zeldin last week, when he confronted her about the skyrocketing crime in New York, and she literally said, “I don’t know why that’s so important to you”?

Meanwhile, Zeldin tweeted Sunday evening, “Just left Borough Park. It’s clearer than ever we have all of the energy and momentum on our side, we have the issues on our side, and, in 9 Days, New Yorkers are ALL IN to FIRE Kathy Hochul, TAKE BACK our streets, and SAVE our State!”

Early voting in New York started Saturday and goes through next Sunday. The election is Nov. 8.

With the election coming down to the wire, an unconstitutional infringement was caught on video showing NYPD removing Lee Zeldin signs in Brooklyn.

(RepublicanWire.org) – Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) claimed the state’s plan to bus illegal immigrants to liberal cities like New York is not political, and the Lone Star State will keep doing so until the Biden administration makes an effort to address the border crisis, during an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Monday.

“First of all, this is all voluntary. We’re not forcing anyone to get on the bus. Secondly, that’s part of the agreement. You’re going to the destination. And this is not political, Bill. If it’s political, it’s from the mayor who said he’s going to send door knockers to Texas for the November election to help Democrats. That’s the person who’s made it political.” Patrick explained.

“And by the way, Mayor, don’t threaten Texas. And also, he may spike the Republican turnout so much with that rhetoric — that he’s sending New Yorkers to Texas — that the Republicans might send him an award after we blow them out in November. But that’s the politics of it. They turned it into politics. This is a disaster.”When asked what Texas had to prove, Patrick replied that the Biden Administration needs to address the crisis at the nation’s Southern Border.

“Well, first of all, every mayor of a big blue city, which are most of the top 25 in the country, should be on notice,” he proclaimed. “Look out your window, you might see a bus coming to you one day in the future, and the buses are going to keep coming.” While Patrick admitted he hadn’t heard of any liberal mayors contacting the White House, he still took time to highlight the extent of the problem. “We’ve had now 400,000 people in the Del Rio sector in the last year. The population of that town is 36,000. That’s more than ten times the population,” he added. “It would be like us sending 80 million to New York. We’re desperate, Bill, we gotta make this a story — and no one else is covering it but you Fox News. And so, if we can put pressure on all these Democrat mayors around the country, maybe they’ll pick up the phone and call Joe Biden and say the border is not secure.” America needs to put pressure on the Biden Administration to address this pressing problem, before the future of the country is caught up in this mess.

(RepublicanWire.org) – New York City Mayor Eric Adams threatened to send New Yorkers to Texas to campaign against the state’s Gov. Greg Abbott days after the first busload of migrants arrived in New York City.

According to a Friday press release, Abbott has bussed 6,500 illegal migrants to D.C. and, now, New York City, from the Texas Southern border since the governor announced “Operation Lone Star” in April following the CDC’s announcement that it would end Title 42 restrictions on border crossings.

“We are sending them to the United States Capitol, where the Biden administration will be able to more immediately address the needs of the people that they are allowing to come across our border,” Abbott said when he announced the plan in April.

Abbott sent the first busload of migrants to New York City Friday, saying in a press release that he hoped Adams “follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”

Mayor Adams reacted to the move in a press conference Tuesday.

“I am deeply contemplating taking a busload of New Yorkers to go to Texas and do some good ol’ fashion door knocking,” Adams said, “because we have to — for the good of America, we have to get him Abbott out of office.”

Adams blasted Abbott for sending illegal migrants to his city Monday, calling the move “horrific.”

“And New York is a city that has always represented the Democratic values, the values of our city, showing our compassion, that’s what we’re doing today,” Adams said.

“Because of the Mayor’s poor leadership, high taxes and out of control crime, people are already volunteering to leave New York City without the Mayor asking,” Gov. Abbott’s office stated.

The New York Post asked Eric Adams if he has asked or plans to ask Biden or federal agencies to change the open-border policy and stop the endless flow of illegal border crossers from entering the country. “Shockingly,” Adams said he has no interest in doing so.

Abbott’s spokesman said in a statement, “We hope the Mayor of New York City will come to Texas and campaign for Beto O’ Rourke. He should stop by the Border as well to see the real humanitarian crisis President Biden has created.”

Andrew Cuomo, whose mismanagement of the COVID-19 pandemic cost New York taxpayers millions in lost revenue and pushed them into a budget crisis they are still struggling to emerge from. The disgraced ex-governor was ordered by an ethics panel on Tuesday morning to cough up $5.1 million for his crimes against society as he pocketed money made off people during the pandemic.

The Joint Commission on Public Ethics gave their approval for Cuomo to earn outside income while still being governor in a 12-1 vote. However, the ethics agency has now voted to revoke its prior approval, claiming that Cuomo violated promises. He used state resources and employed staff members.Cuomo’s book proceeds are requested to be turned over to state Attorney General Letitia James. He must pay the money back next month or face more severe consequences.

Cuomo’s team was also accused of low-balling coronavirus-related nursing home deaths while he negotiated the book deal, leading to accusations that they were trying to look better than their competitors in order to make a quick buck off this tragedy.

Cuomo’s lawyer, Jim McGuire, went so far as to say that JCOPE’s decision was illegal and would challenge it in court.

“JCOPE’s actions today are unconstitutional, exceed its own authority and appear to be driven by political interests rather than the facts and the law,” Jim McGuire responded.

Commissioner David McNamara, a Senate Republican appointee and the chairman of JCOPE’s ethics committee, says Cuomo “lacked the legal authority to engage in outside activity and receive compensation from authors” since his approval was rescinded.

McNamare went on to say,“Gov. Cuomo is not legally entitled to retain compensation … for any form of outside activity related to the book.” 

While some feel that the money should be given to the families who lost loved ones because of Cuomo’s negligence, it will be up to state Attorney General Letitia James to determine how and to whom the profits would be distributed. 

As we watch Biden roll out nationwide vaccine mandates despite a promise to do no such thing — and individual states like California and New York do the same — it’s easy to feel like our freedoms are being stripped away. Recently, New York rolled out a vaccine mandate pushed by disgraced former governor Andrew Cuomo. But now, a Clinton-appointed judge has blocked New York’s vaccine mandate.

The mandate requires health care workers to get vaccinated or risk being unable to provide for their families — a potential death or death decision, as most vaccines have not even received full FDA approval. People who have religious objections to vaccines, according to the emergency order, are out of luck if they think their faith will be respected. On Monday, 17 healthcare workers, all Christians, fought back and, for now, managed to convince a judge to temporarily block the mandate. ABC News reports:

A federal judge temporarily blocked the state of New York on Tuesday from forcing medical workers to be vaccinated after a group of health care workers sued, saying their Constitutional rights were violated because the state’s mandate disallowed religious exemptions.

Judge David Hurd in Utica issued the order after 17 health professionals, including doctors and nurses, claimed in a lawsuit Monday that their rights were violated with a vaccine mandate that disallowed the exemptions.

The judge gave New York state until Sept. 22 to respond to the lawsuit in federal court in Utica.

“The vaccine mandate is suspended,” Judge David Hurd of the US District Court for the Northern District of New York, who was appointed by Bill Clinton, said in his order. He barred the Department of Health from “taking any action, disciplinary or otherwise, against the licensure, certification, residency, admitting privileges or other professional status or qualification of any of the plaintiffs on account of their seeking or having obtained a religious exemption from mandatory Covid-19 vaccination.”

The lawsuit was filed anonymously because the plaintiffs fear they  “run the risk of ostracization, threats of harm, immediate firing and other retaliatory consequences if their names become known.” The objection is based on the fact that every available vaccine uses aborted fetus cell lines in their testing, development, and production.

It’s unclear what will happen in the future. But for now, medical workers in New York have a way out if their faith prohibits them from using these vaccines.

Americans are suffering and the pandemic is expensive. Taxpayer dollars in the amount of $2.1 billion could do a lot of good. It could get vaccines to people. Feed the hungry. Help hardworking Americans who can’t work because of damaging pandemic restrictions. Help businesses stay afloat. The possibilities are endless — and of all of these countless options, Democrat New York lawmakers decided to give it to illegal aliens.

Receiving the money isn’t hard. All illegals need to do is prove that they live in New York and that they would otherwise be eligible for COVID stimulus checks if not for their immigration status. Then poof — while Americans starve, they will be handed up to $15,600. There’s even a dummy prize for illegals who can’t provide documentation to back these claims — a payment of $3,200.

This could get quite expensive, too. There are about 750,000 illegals living in New York. If every one of them applies for an receives the absolute minimum payment, this could actually cost as low as $2.4 billion. If they all receive the maximum, this could really be as expensive as $11.7 billion. Fox reports:

New York lawmakers struck a deal this week to establish a $2.1 billion coronavirus relief fund for undocumented immigrants and other unemployed workers who were ineligible for federal aid during the pandemic.

The fund, which was announced as part of a broader $212 billion state budget agreement, will offer one-time payments of up to $15,600 to undocumented immigrants who lost their jobs during the virus-induced crisis.

“This nation’s economy has long been built on the backs of our undocumented workforce, and their essential labor that has helped keep our nation running throughout this pandemic,” New York State Sen. Jessica Ramos, a proponent of the fund, said in a statement.

Americans are suffering. Starving. Dying. But as they cry out for help, Democrats in New York decide to turn their backs on their constituents and give much-needed money to people who aren’t even in the country legally. These are people who have no respect for our laws or way of life. People we should be deporting — but instead, we are rewarding them with handsome cash payments. What a world we live in.
