“Andrew Cuomo’s Democrat Party always puts the rights of law breakers ahead of taxpayers. Whether it’s paroling cop-killers, legalizing infanticide or giving free college and driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, Albany Democrats have proven they are in lockstep with leftist radicals and could care less about the priorities of taxpaying New Yorkers.”
“We will constantly remind taxpayers about this, and the many other mistaken priorities of Cuomo’s Democrat Party. We will make sure voters remember on Election Day 2019 and 2020.”
Langworthy Blasts Cuomo and Legislative Democrats’ Reckless & Wrongheaded Proposal to
Give Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Immigrants
Puts Democrats on Notice in Next Year’s Election for Defying Strong Public Opposition
Albany, NY–June 3rd…Incoming NYGOP Nick Langworthy today blasted Governor Cuomo and legislative Democrats who support a proposal to provide driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
Langworthy warned weakening the law to provide driver’s licenses, which is the most widely-accepted government identification, puts our security at risk and creates a haven that incentivizes people to break our immigration laws.
He also noted the undue burden and increased responsibility this would place on the county clerks who oversee motor vehicle bureaus in many counties across the state. The state Association of County Clerks today formally announced their opposition to the proposal.
“It looks like Cuomo is following right in Spitzer’s footsteps with this reckless proposal,” said incoming NYGOP chairman Nick Langworthy. “Andrew Cuomo and Albany Democrats have spent this legislative session making life easier for criminals and lawbreakers, while the taxpaying citizens of New York continue to get screwed under the highest taxes and worst economic outlook in the nation. It’s loud and clear that their only priority is their own political ambition.”
He concluded, “The majority of New Yorkers have come out strongly in opposition to this proposal and any Democrat who tries to ram it through anyway will be held accountable by the voters in next year’s election. We will make sure of it.”
May 23, 2019… “Once again, New Yorkers are learning of yet another apparent bid-rigging and pay-to-play operation by Governor Cuomo who gave a lucrative airport development deal in exchange for more than $600,000 in donations from his mega-donor. In a normal world, this would be considered stunning, but it is sadly business-as-usual for Andrew Cuomo, who has been ensnared in a laundry list of pay-to-play scandals that have sent several of his close associates to prison.
“In Cuomo’s New York, state government is for sale and his wealthy donors get richer on the backs of taxpayers, while millions of New Yorkers suffer under his oppressive and politically-driven economic policies that destroy jobs and industries.
“These latest revelations demand a criminal investigation, and if there is any hope of restoring New Yorkers’ trust in government, Andrew Cuomo must be held accountable.”
May 16, 2019… Bill de Blasio’s presidential run will be as successful as his disastrous tenure as mayor. He is the walking definition of failed socialism whose big government policies, corruption and mismanagement will fit right in with the radical liberals in the race.
April 30, 2019… “Andrew Cuomo has been waging a tyrannical war on the Second Amendment since his passage of the unconstitutional SAFE Act, continuing with his unlawful threats against insurance companies who do business with the NRA, and now using his handpicked Attorney General to wage a politically-motivated investigation.
“President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment. Cuomo’s ridiculous claim
on national television this morning that “we [the royal we] don’t do things for politics in New York State” is perhaps the most brazen laugh-out-loud lie of his entire Administration.
“The indisputable truth is that everything Andrew ‘I am the government’Cuomo does is for his political power with no respect for the rule of law. He will stop at nothing in his quest to eradicate the Second Amendment and the rights of law-abiding gun owners.”
Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on the Release of the Mueller Report
April 18, 2019
“President Trump has been totally vindicated and it is a good day for America. After two years, $25 million and hundreds of interviews and man hours on one of the most thorough investigations of any U.S. President, today’s release confirms what we knew all along–no collusion, no obstruction. It’s high time Democrats end their overzealous and partisan games and focus on the issues that matter to the people they are supposed to represent.
“Meanwhile, the investigation must now turn to the conduct of intelligence and other officials who abused their positions and the truth about the phony Steele dossier must be revealed to the public. As President Trump said, this should never happen again.”
DO NEW YORK CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS AGREE WITH COLLEAGUE THAT 9/11 WAS SIMPLY “SOME PEOPLE THAT DID SOMETHING?”
April 12th… It’s been three days since Rep. Omar made her offensive remarks and while AOC and other Dems are actually defending her outrageous comments and labeling anyone upset by them as racists, most of New York’s congressional Democrats have stayed silent or refused to outright condemn their colleague.
Rep. Max Rose represents a district that lost more than 300 men and women during the terrorist attacks on September 11th, yet he refuses to call out Omar by name and condemn her.
Where are the rest of NYC’s congressional delegation? SILENT
Jerry Nadler whose district covers Ground Zero? SILENT but has plenty of time for partisan games.
Sean Patrick Maloney…SILENT
Our state leaders are no better….
Where is Governor Cuomo? SILENT
Kirsten Gillibrand? SILENT
Chuck Schumer? SILENT
Tish James? SILENT
This isn’t even the first time Omar has demonstrated sympathies for Islamic extremism. Back in 2016, Omar
asked a judge for “compassion” when sentencing an ISIS recruit and her anti-Semitic tropes are well documented.
Just today a clip emerged of her mocking Americans for their anxiety about al-Qaeda and equating them and Hezbollah with U.S. armed forces.
Chairman Cox said, “It’s stunning that any member of Congress would whitewash the most horrific attack on our nation’s soil, but for New York Democrats to put party loyalty over condemning her words is despicable. September 11th forever changed New York, America and the families of the nearly 3,000 murdered souls. Part of ‘never forgetting’ means remembering what happened. Shame on them for their silence.”
“The Democratic legislature and Governor Cuomo are suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome and playing politics at the expense of doing the people’s business. No matter how they dress it up for legal purposes, this unconstitutional bill of attainder is aimed at one individual for the political purpose of re-litigating the 2016 election. The bill would set a dangerous precedent for infringing on the privacy rights of all citizens.
“Albany Democrats are happy to do the dirty work of national Democrats, yet they willfully turned a blind eye to the rampant corruption committed by their fellow Democrat, Andrew Cuomo and his Administration. They have no credibility, and this bill, if enacted, will fail in the courts and Democrats will once again have egg on their faces for their purely partisan politics.”
President Trump Exonerated;
Congressional Democrats Need to Stop Political Games and Get to Work
New York–March 25th…After two years of the most exhaustive investigation of a President in U.S. history, President Trump and his campaign have been exonerated from the Democrats’ scurrilous charges of Russian collusion.
The statistics surrounding Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation are striking:
- The investigation went on for 675 days.
- The total reported cost of the Mueller investigation through September 2018 was over $25 million.
- The cost per day was $50, 230.00 – the second most expensive in history.
- There were 19 attorneys on Robert Mueller’s staff – 12 more than the Starr investigation.
- There were approximately 40 FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants and other staff that assisted with the investigation.
- Approximately 500 individuals testified or interviewed with the Special Counsel’s team.
- There were 2800 subpoenas issued, 500 executed search warrants and 230 orders for communication records.
- In addition to the Special Counsel’s investigation, there were 3 separate Congressional investigations by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senate Intelligence Committee, and the House Intelligence Committee – all of the committees found no evidence of collusion.
“President Trump told the American people from day one that he did not collude with the Russians and this report finally vindicates the President,” said NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox. “Democrats have refused to accept that their flawed presidential candidate lost the election fair and square, and have been desperate to undermine the legitimacy of President Trump at every turn. Their political witch hunt– led by Congressional Democrats–has done a disservice to Americans and it’s time to end. New York’s Democratic congressional delegation needs to get to work and start delivering for the people they represent.”
Statement from NYGOP Chairman Ed Cox on NYC Public Advocate Election Results
February 26, 2019
“Tonight, tens of thousands of New Yorkers sent a message that they are unhappy with the direction of this city under liberal Mayor de Blasio and want real accountability. We congratulate Councilman Ulrich on running a hard-fought race and distinguishing himself as a true common-sense candidate. While he came up short, this race affirmed that Republicans can compete in New York City and issues matter. As the only candidate in the race to support Amazon and oppose the congestion pricing tax, he cemented his status as an independent leader who will stand up to powerful political interests on behalf of New York City residents.”
