Stefanik one sign of rot within the GOP

Another sad chapter in the life and now degradation of the once great Republican Party is being written last week.
For at least the last five years, the national GOP as we have come to know it has steadily yet inexorably been dying.
Once the party of Lincoln and Reagan, the GOP has been reduced to a shell of its once proud, principled self into a cult of personality, worshiping at the throne of a twice-impeached former president.
There has been no “battle for the soul of the party” but, rather, an enthusiastic embrace of the politics of grievance and retribution. The conservative principles that once defined the party and were given voice by the likes of William F. Buckley, George Will and Bill Kristol have no home in the GOP of today.
Now, an acolyte of the disgraced president, Rep. Elise Stefanik, is being elevated within the congressional Republican hierarchy as a reward for her fealty to the Dear Leader.
Stefanik, ever the opportunist, has morphed from Trump critic to ardent mouthpiece, spouting the disproven claims of a stolen 2020 election and widespread voting fraud.
Not content to debase herself just with her active defense during Impeachment #1, in January she opposed certification of the election results mere hours after insurrectionists assaulted Capitol Hill. Yet sadly, Stefanik is just another sign of the rot in the foundation of her party, a rot that only continues in Washington and in numerous state capitals. Ronald Reagan would not recognize his party today.

Happy to welcome Guyanese to Sch’dy

Congratulations for that interesting series on the Guyanese in our community (“Here for good Guyanese mark 20 years in Schenectady”), which ran in the April 25 to 28 Daily Gazette.
They have earned our respect and become a vital part of the community. Decades ago, when I first heard of the intentions of former Mayor Al Jurczynski, I was skeptical and now have to admit he was right, and I was wrong. Welcome.

Shame on GOP for voter suppression

As a person who has never voted a straight ticket and will support candidates, I feel I have earned it. I am very concerned about the concentrated efforts by the Republican Party to limit access to voting for selected elements of our society that are not likely to support their party.
They are not targeting white suburban voters, but are making it more difficult for voters who have more difficulty getting to the polls. Not surprisingly, the people who will have the most difficulty voting are non-White minorities in cities.
The Republicans are saying that this is to prevent voter fraud, but all of the research (by independent agencies and companies) does not indicate that voter fraud is a big issue; it has always happened in all elections, but not in large enough numbers to affect outcomes.
In fact, the 2020 presidential election has been found to be the most secure and honest election in history.
The Big Lie about Trump having the election stolen has been disproven in dozens of courts, including those with Trump-appointed judges. The Republicans are actually trying to institute defacto apartheid by trying to ensure that voters (mostly all White) who are likely to support Republican candidates are most likely to be allowed to vote and to keep the non-White minorities out of the picture.
For the party of Lincoln they should at least have the moral fiber to be ashamed — I am not encouraged that they will.

Look at logic for the truth in Marco case

James Rossi raised the question in his May 11 letter (“Who in Marco case isn’t telling the truth”) neither woman is lying regarding Diane Marco.
If she was holding binders, she could easily tap someone on the shoulder. What she would have been unable to do is shove someone with force.

Dennis J. Quinn You are a Democrat anti Trumper that has been posting these alternative facts for years.

Rudy Nydegger Why do Democrats continue to lie about what’s going on in republican states. Georgia’s election laws are less restrictive than New York election laws as far as early voting. The only thing they are doing is making it harder to cheat, why do you Democrats have such a problem with states making it harder to cheat in elections?

LOUIS RESTIFO

In today’s editorials there were two more letters, one by Dennis J. Quinn and the other by Rudy Nydegger, that further tell the tale of progression related to the trumpian direction that will lead to the eventual dismemberment of the GOP.

I’m sure that we will soon again hear from a right wing extremists, writing that the Gazette is a left leaning biased newspaper because it disproportionately prints left leaning editorials.

The fact of the matter is that more people are realizing and expressing that the Republican Party has been reconstructing their platform on a dark house of cards resulting, in my opinion, in an inevitable collapse that will need some serious rebuilding.

Thank you both, Dennis and Rudy for writing your letters.

RAYMOND HARRIS

So true. But keep in mind that Trump and the GOP didn’t have a platform at their 2020 convention. What they have are tactics, like voter suppression, gerrymandering and lying to change history unfolding before us.

Republican Platform? That’s not fair! They’ve revised their platform now to include much more than removing Russian sanctions. I’ve taken this right off the GOP’s website so it should be considered their official position now. I could not make this up:

RESOLUTION REGARDING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY PLATFORM
WHEREAS, The Republican National Committee (RNC) has significantly scaled back the size and scope of the 2020 Republican National Convention in Charlotte due to strict restrictions on gatherings and meetings, and out of concern for the safety of convention attendees and our hosts;
WHEREAS, The RNC has unanimously voted to forego the Convention Committee on Platform, in appreciation of the fact that it did not want a small contingent of delegates formulating a new platform without the breadth of perspectives within the ever-growing Republican movement;
WHEREAS, All platforms are snapshots of the historical contexts in which they are born, and parties abide by their policy priorities, rather than their political rhetoric;
WHEREAS, The RNC, had the Platform Committee been able to convene in 2020, would have undoubtedly unanimously agreed to reassert the Party’s strong support for President Donald Trump and his Administration;
WHEREAS, The media has outrageously misrepresented the implications of the RNC not adopting a new platform in 2020 and continues to engage in misleading advocacy for the failed policies of the Obama-Biden Administration, rather than providing the public with unbiased reporting of facts; and
WHEREAS, The RNC enthusiastically supports President Trump and continues to reject the policy positions of the Obama-Biden Administration, as well as those espoused by the Democratic National Committee today; therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That the Republican Party has and will continue to enthusiastically support the President’s America-first agenda;
RESOLVED, That the 2020 Republican National Convention will adjourn without adopting a new platform until the 2024 Republican National Convention;
RESOLVED, That the 2020 Republican National Convention calls on the media to engage in accurate and unbiased reporting, especially as it relates to the strong support of the RNC for President Trump and his Administration; and
RESOLVED, That any motion to amend the 2016 Platform or to adopt a new platform, including any motion to suspend the procedures that will allow doing so, will be ruled out of order.

Mr. Restifo, you associate our former President with childish words like trumpian, what does that mean? How about Bidenism which means, higher taxes, fewer jobs, less security in The Middle East, China, S. Korea, Iran, and Russia, higher gas prices, bail reform, anti-police and open borders. Who knew that this puppet could do this much damage to America in four short months. There is only voter suppression in the minds of democrats because states are making it harder to cheat. As an Independent I welcome all reforms that make voter fraud more difficult.

LOUIS RESTIFO

“you associate our former President with childish words like trumpian, what does that mean?”

Look in the mirror and reread most of your posts, as well as well as all of Bill’s and Fred’s and you’ll have your answer.

RAYMOND HARRIS

Are you seeing anyone for your paranoia and misplaced labels on Biden? It must be driving you crazy that he has a 63% favorability rating by the public whereas Trump never achieved 50% which may be a first. Trump also left office having been the only president who lost jobs over their term. Unless you make more than $400,000 per year, your taxes won’t go up. If you do, congratulations and I’m glad you will help pay for Biden’s Job Act which will create millions of jobs and help towards climate change. And to set the record straight, Biden: is implementing a foreign affairs strategy that Trump never had; is not anti-police and plans to increase federal spending for police whereas Trump’s budget cut police funding; and is not for open borders but is working towards a more humane immigration system than Trump’s inhumane, racist policies. Finally, since there was no election fraud detected or documented, why is the GOP being so racist in making it more difficult for people of color and poor rural citizens to vote instead of expanding voting; I know the answer, but do you?

Mr. Harris, you are using alternative reality. For starters according to Gallup, Biden is at 56 percent. You say Trump left office losing jobs. DUH!!!! We were in a global pandemic and the science said we had to shut everything down and stay home. The lie that your taxes won’t go up if you make more than $400K a year is just that, a lie. Even if by some quirk your taxes did not go up the cost of goods and services would go up due to the increased taxes on companies as they always pass the extra taxes on to the consumer. As for Biden’s humane immigration policy, we are seeing an unprecedented 800% increase in unaccompanied minors, rather than being in “cages” they are in plexiglass rooms shoulder to shoulder with others who have covid. As for the 48 hours to move them out of CBP they move them right next door to the same cages run by HHS. Just because courts refused to take up challenges for many reasons does not mean there was no fraud, that is yet to be seen and we may get a glimpse into it in Arizona. Anyone can vote by mail, just request an absentee ballot, its that simple, if you repeat the lie enough people like you believe it.

OK Zachary, maybe time for some fresh air.
Here’s where you can see where Ray sourced his info. It clearly says he has a 63% overall approval rating and other things that will make you uncomfortable:
https://apnews.com/article/biden-coronavirus-approval-rating-efcc859a21a0ab6c43dfb4157987bf80

Pew research shows 59% (Sorry, only one URL per post, you’ll have to look that up yourself)

Ray didn’t say what you said he said. He said exactly what Mr. Biden said, that earners UNDER $400,000/yr would not pay an additional penny in taxes. You read what you wanted to though.

Then I got to your referencing the calamity in AZ. It is jaw-dropping that there are grown adults who see this as valid. This is a fraud on the people of Maricopa County, as well as the rest of the country. You should be ashamed to think this will somehow reveal anything other than the general level of poor judgement and looniness in the Republican Party. Nothing they claim to find will ever see the light of a courtroom.

RAYMOND HARRIS

Zachary, the only fraud in AZ is the state GOP. I hope the Federal Election Commission asks the FBI to investigate what is going on since the unqualified conspiracy theory contractors have not shared anything about their audit process other than looking for Chinese bamboo ballots. Your party is in very sad shape which is fine with me as long as they don’t try to screw the American public.

RAYMOND HARRIS

Zachary, regarding the corporate taxes, did prices fall when they got the giant tax cut in 2017? No, they used it for stock buybacks and executive bonuses. Companies have to compete and just cannot pass along the modest increase Biden is suggesting. Lately there is talk that the increase will be smaller in return for restaffing the IRS to go after those who have not paid their fair share of taxes.

LOUIS RESTIFO

Zach, I agree with your apparent thinking that childish words, phrases, and name-calling in quite inappropriate.

What’s your thought on these:

According to Gov Abbots Fox News,

Texas reported zero deaths from COVID-19 on Sunday, just two months after Gov. Greg Abbott drew heat from the White House for rolling back business restrictions and lifting the state’s mask mandate.

It marked the first time the Lone Star State reported no coronavirus deaths in about 14 months, according to state health data. Abbott said the case numbers reported on Sunday – 388 – were the lowest in more than 13 months, while the number of hospitalizations was the lowest in 11 months.

Florida2015

That is great news for everyone in Texas Zachary. My grand daughter is there in Navel training school. We should be glad for everyone as we slowly get a handle on this.
Since I live in Florida we are leading in new infections because of variants,and have deaths every day from covid. So you can see no matter who the Governors are the virus doesn’t care.
On another note Biden just announced we will send 20 million doses out to other countries, because till the world is mostly vaccinated accomplishments like in Texas will be short lived.

jclark124

Zachary–That’s great news, just a few counties haven’t yet reported results. I’m wondering if the fact that Texas has a warmer climate put people outdoors earlier than other states like NY.

LOUIS RESTIFO

If it is considered plagiarism that I did acknowledge Wikipedia when I copy pasted it, then I’m guilty.

Florida2015

A add to my above comment. If we had had leadership from the top AT the beginning we probably would not be having this conservation of who was better at protecting there states citizens. The whole county would have been basically the same without having to go on Fox Noise and gloat.

Florida2015, you can’t get more leadership than a vaccine in six months. Maybe if you didn’t have Biden and Faucci and the democrats in Congress who were vaccinated walking around wearing two masks people would be more willing to get it. Bidens messaging has been terrible at best, I have heard many times people say why get the vaccine if I still have to wear a mask.

Wrong.
Any President would have done what he did, then they would’ve encouraged people to get it and not disparage people taking precautions and the medical authorities trying to do the right thing, which he did repeatedly.

Fact Zach: Even though you’re vaccinated you can still get the virus and pass it on to others whether they’re vaccinated or not. That’s why masks and distancing and hand washing are still strongly advised.

You clearly have no idea why we get vaccinated, how the virus is transferred, how the virus can be transferred from a vaccinated person to another unprotected person, how the virus kills or severely debilitates someone often long term. Stuff Dr. Fauci and the other experts have been telling us for a year. Stuff you feel you can second-guess because of course, you’re a world renowned medical authority, aren’t you? No, you’re not. You’re a product of your messiah, tRump, and you wear it on your sleeve for all to see, and that’s why the American people rejected him after one term.

I’m going to update what I just said based on Fauci’s clear comments I’m now hearing; that a vaccinated person has a very low chance of contracting and transmitting the virus.

ChuckD, for the record I have had both shots. Why would anyone take an experimental vaccine if you had a high probability of catching and or transmitting the disease? Again Biden’s messaging has been terrible he should have been out with Faucci saying we are vaccinated we no longer need the mask and that would have been a message of hope and people would have been less hesitant to get the shot.

Zachary, Your last message is exactly what former guy should have been doing. A few hundred thousand folks might still be around if it had been handled that way. Except for the mask message. If you have any doubt about catching virus, like we do here in Florida I would suggest you keep wearing mask if you ever did. I will say the new CDC guidelines as everyone has pretty much stated are going to cause confusion to reign. Already is here.
