Daily Update – July 30, 2018

Former State Senator and Chairman of the NYS Conservative Party, Serphin R. Maltese, himself a Veteran of the Korean War, sent this note out to his many friends over the weekend and we wanted to take this opportunity to share it with you our readers.

On July 27th, 1953, the Armistice ending 3 years of war in Korea was signed in P’anmunjom, in Korea. Now on the 65th Anniversary of that date, 55 Coffins of our Heroic American Warriors are being returned Home.  I was then a Corporal serving in the 45th Infantry Division at nearby ChunChon, Korea. We All celebrated “The End Of the War”. Little did we know that it would take more than 65 years to see the Return Home of the Bodies of our Missing in Action Heroes. There are 7,704 (MIA) Missing in Action U.S. Service Members still not Home. More than 140,000 Korean War Casualties in all with 102,000 (WIA) Wounded and 33,652 (KIA) Killed In Action.  After decades of ongoing talks, as Veterans and Americans, we gratefully Thank our President Donald J. Trump for his successful Humanitarian negotiations to repatriate the Bodies of our Buddies who never came Home to their Families.  We Thank God for Their return and look forward to their speedy Identification and return, so that All Their Missing Comrades In Arms will also come Home At Long Last.

Thanks to the American Spectator for pointing this out:  Ocasio-Cortez Channels FALN on Puerto Rico.

David Harsanyi opines in the NY Post that ‘Democratic Socialists’ do need to answer on Venezuela, while Kurt Schlichter asks the question in Townhall.com is Millennial Socialism: Stupid, Evil, or Both?

Rising cigarette prices spark increase in ‘buttlegging.’ 

The NY Post editorial says Too much mercy for Sheldon Silver, we agree.

Normally we do not pay a lot of attention to an article written by “anonymous” and admittedly we are not big fans of Nanny State Grandpa Michael Bloomberg, however, this article sounds the alarm, yet again, on what a disaster of a Mayor, de Blasio is.

Did you know that Republicans sue to find out if their complaint against governor led to ethics investigation?  Chris Bragg reports on the lawsuit in today’s Albany Times Union in his article:  Is JCOPE eyeing Cuomo?,

The Empire Center keeps us informed regarding Cuomo’s Cable Hit. 

Jonathan Trichter, our candidate for NYS Comptroller, has a new video out that you can view here.  Here is his latest press release on how our New York State Pension Fund Massively Underperforms under Comptroller DiNapoli. and his “White Paper” on the same subject.

California goes off the deep end again:  A modest response to the new self-appointed straw police.

While I am certain this article was not intended to be a pro-life article…it certainly shows that 1) Life is precious and 2) even if a baby is not considered viable, she or he still has a strong chance to live.  Rosalie Grace, was born on June 26 and weighed in at a mere 1 pound, 9 ounces, just a bit larger that her mom’s hand. Every aspect of this article was truly uplifting.
