Here is the link to the explosive article on Red State regarding Lally's amnesty advocacy.
 
The plan of action is to get this story National exposure on the conservative new media which is very influential in GOP primaries. To do this, we need an all out ‘Labate army’ assault. 
 
 Below is a list of tip submission methods for conservative websites w/ massive national readerships.  Your supporters need to read the article so they understand exactly who the GOP has endorsed.  Have every person who supports your campaign to copy and paste a link to the article along with a personal plea  “please this guy is running in my district, help us expose whats going on” to these news sites, pundits and influential politicians.  This is a National News story and hopefully someone will pick it up and run with it.
 
This story must be emailed to all those in the district that you think need to know about it and your people must pound away at it on Facebook and social media.
 
Also, please explain that this isn't an attack on Irish Americans, Irish illegals or any illegal aliens at all for that matter.  These ethnic front groups like NAACP, la Raza, and the ILIR claim to represent all people of a certain heritage which is nonsense.  I know a bunch of irish Americans (me included) and irish immigrants and not one of them has even heard of the ILIR let alone endorsed their left wing positions.
 
Have as many people as possible copy and paste a link to the RedState article along with a personal plea to expose whats going on in CD-3. The article should be posted on every Facebook wall, Tweeted and emailed to every conservative minded person we can reach.  
 
Drudge Report is the most widely read news aggregate site in the country so that should be a top priority 
 
Every Republican in the country should know that the Establishment GOP chose an illegal alien advocate and lobbyist over a decorated combat veteran. It’s absolutely infuriating.

Hi, Andy,

Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed reading your column in the paper you gave us. 
We totally agree with you because of course you are right.

I am now reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz, a new book that exposes 50 years of bureaucratic malfeasance when it comes to promoting a low fat diet to achieve heart health. It makes me so mad I can only read a little bit at a time.

She scrutinizes (to use your word) every study done on this subject and shows how every one of them is flawed and yet how the bureaucrats and politicians pushed this in spite of clear and convincing evidence that low fat was not the problem!

To think of all those years I didn't eat BACON!!!

Really, this book will make you distrust the advice of any self-proclaimed expert. It's a BIG FAT BOOK and full of DETAIL. Devastating!

Mary Knapp

The past is never dead; it isn't even past

CASTELLI READY TO PRIMARY

LEWISBORO — Former Assemblyman Bob Castelli (R,C - Lewisboro) issued the following statement Tuesday morning:

"While I am disappointed in the Westchester Committee's decision not to adjourn the vote on this important Senate seat until I and other candidates had a chance to go before each committee, I appreciate the opportunity to be heard, and the support of those who voted for adjournment and who continue to support my candidacy.  All of my efforts have been focused leading up to last night's convention due to the untimely decision of Sen. Ball only last Friday not to run.  I congratulate Terrence Murphy on obtaining the necessary votes for nomination in Westchester.  I intend to retain all of my options, and will speak with my campaign staff and supporters to determine which course we will take."

SENATOR GREG BALL ISSUES
STATEMENT ON ROB ROLISON


Albany, N.Y. – 05/19/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R,
C, I – Patterson), co-chairman of the New York State Senate Republican Campaign
Committee, issued the following statement regarding Dutchess County Chairman Rob
Rolison’s decision to withdraw from the race for the 41st Senate District.


“Rob Rolison is an absolute prince of a man and a
true public servant. He has always put his community and his party before his
own self-interest. Over the past several months I have gotten to know Rob
Rolison very well. Rob is a gentleman and a dedicated public servant that
proudly and tirelessly serves the people of Dutchess County. While he is no
longer seeking a seat in the New York State Legislature, I am confident that he
will continue the important work he is doing as the Chairman of the County
Legislature,” said Senator Greg Ball.

Heroin Epidemic
Heroin Epidemic
 
 
SCRIPT: 
  
  
There was an alarming reminder in the New York Times on Tuesday about the influx of heroin in New York.

Kids smoking pot just a couple of years ago are now trying heroin that's becoming cheaper and more abundant every day.

To those who remember New York in the 1970's, this is truly jarring, because we know how the story ends. A heroin epidemic equals crime and death, especially in low income communities.

Too many New York parents have already lost children to overdoses; we can't bear to lose more. In my county we're supplying police and other first responders with a special drug called NARCAN to reverse the effects of heroin overdose. That's how common overdoses are becoming.

Young New Yorkers are especially vulnerable to drug use today because of the hopelessness that comes with a lack of job opportunities in this state.  A Fiscal Policy Institute study issued last August reported that fewer than half of 18-24-year olds in New York had jobs, and almost a third were underemployed. The numbers in at risk communities are even worse.

I often ask New Yorkers whether we are winning or losing as a state. Sadly, this is another indicator of the answer.  A state that's not moving forward always slips backwards, and this is what it looks like.  

My running mate, Chemung County Sheriff Chris Moss, has been on the front lines fighting the growing drug epidemic in his county. He's seen what methamphetamines, prescription pills, and heroin can do to families and communities.

Chris and I are going to be talking a lot about the growing heroin crisis in New York in our travels around this state, because this is a topic that must not remain in the shadows. We're also going to be talking with our kids about drugs, and we know other parents will do the same.

We need to deal with the crisis head on -- all of us; parents, elected officials, church and community leaders -- before it gets worse.

A heroin epidemic is the last thing New York needs right now.

IN RESPONSE TO SENATOR BALL
Statement by Assemblyman Steve Katz (R,C,I-Yorktown)
 
Beginning on May 11, at least 5 media outlets reported on the investigation of 5 state senators for improper use of campaign funds. One of these senators under investigation as stated by every one of these reports was Senator Ball.

My press conference was on May 15th. This story was therefore common public knowledge and in the papers and news outlets already for two days before I was asked to comment.

If Senator Ball is angry about this story, he and Mr. Tacopina should direct their letters to the New York Post, City and State, Daily News, et al and not to me.
 
As to the rest of his statement, it simply is not true, and I will not dignify it with a response.. 

I wish Senator Ball well in the private sector and this new chapter in his life.

Push to Remove Offensive Signage
Introduce Bill to Create New "Accessible" Disability Sign

ALBANY - Today, Assemblywoman Sandy Galef and Senator David Carlucci held a
press conference in Albany to promote legislation that would modernize the
Universal Symbol of Access to be implemented throughout New York State.
This important legislation calls for the elimination of the word
'handicapped', and changes the icon symbol to represent a person seated in a
wheelchair while appearing to be in motion.



Updated signage has recently been adopted in New York City, and is being
implemented worldwide.  It is a common sense approach, maintaining a people
first perspective, and placing the emphasis on the person, rather than the
disability.



Assemblywoman Galef and Senator Carlucci have introduced legislation
(A.8193/S.6846) that will discontinue the offensive and outdated
"handicapped accessible" signs throughout the State, and replace them with
the revamped "accessible" signs approved by disability advocates worldwide.
This new symbol illustrates a more dynamic person to reflect a more real
world perception.



Assemblywoman Galef expressed, "A picture is worth 1,000 words.  We have to
be sure the right pictures are depicting the spirit and vitality of New
Yorkers with disabilities.  Having a disability does not mean that one must
remain stationary and signage across New York State should reflect the
energy that those in the disability community exude.  In addition, we must
eliminate the word 'handicapped' from our vocabulary.  This legislation will
take positive steps to change this disparaging language to instead read
'accessible'.  It is so important that as a legislative body we make certain
people are not defined by their disabilities.  I look forward to continuing
my work with Senator Carlucci, and with my Assembly colleagues so this
legislation may become law."



Senator Carlucci said, "The word 'handicapped is out-dated, derogatory, and
just plain offensive.  Working together with advocates throughout the State,
we need to make sure we remove barriers by transforming the old symbol into
an active engaged image.  I look forward to working with advocates who
joined us today and my colleagues in the legislature to make sure people
with disabilities of all kinds have greater rights and opportunities
throughout the State."



"The word 'handicapped' is considered a stigma by the disability community
due to its origin in the phrase hand in cap, which was derived from a game
of chance, and also believed to denote images of begging and vulnerability.
In similar fashion, as the term 'mentally retarded' is offensive to persons
with developmental disabilities, the word 'handicapped' is offensive to the
disability community in general," said Lisa Tarricone, Director of Systems
Advocacy, Westchester Independent Living Center.



John Zink, Director of Government and Public Affairs, AIM Independent Living
Center stated, "The new icon depicts movement and activity-just because an
individual has a disability does not mean he/she lives a static life, which
the current accessibility signage depicts."



Wini Schiff, Associate Executive Director for Legislative Affairs
InterAgency Council of Developmental Disabilities Agencies said, "Words and
symbols are very important... they are tools that can either divide us or
bring us together.  This bill is more important than one might think in
changing perceptions regarding people with disabilities and creating a
society of inclusion for all of us."



Mevlin Tanzman, Executive Director of Westchester Disabled on the Move,
"Disability advocates have asked for decades that the word 'handicapped' no
longer be used to describe people with disabilities.  It is certainly time
for our accessible signage to reflect modern and accepted language usage.
A.8193/S.6846 makes New York State a leader in the continuing struggle for
disability rights.



"The Developmental Disabilities Alliance of western New York, applaud
Senator Carlucci and Assemblymember Galef for being in the forefront on this
important issue.  Too often, people with disabilities are stereotyped
because of antiquated words and symbols that depict and connote
limitations," said Rhonda Frederick, President of DDAWNY.  "People with
disabilities should be recognized for their contributions and that is what
this dynamic modernization of this symbol and language do," added Frederick.



"The word handicapped is pejorative and stereotypical and the move to a more
dynamic and active icon and person centered language is emblematic of where
we are going as society.  The intent of the ADA is to make accessibility for
all the law of the and the older icon and use of the word handicapped is
self-limiting and out of step with reality and what we see every day, namely
of people with a disability actively participating in all areas of our
society as barriers are being removed.  This is in large measure thanks to
the advances brought forward from the ADA.  However, the greatest barriers
persons with accessibility issues face are not necessarily physical but
attitudinal.  The active icon and move to the word accessible only will go a
long way in changing attitudes which is where we must start.  We praise and
enthusiastically support the legislation proposed and look forward to its
speedy passage." George Hoehmann, Executive Director of Rockland Independent
Living Center and Vice President of the New York State Association for
Independent Living.



"I believe this legislation is a positive step forward and provides a much
more dynamic, inclusive and appropriate representation of people with
disabilities," said Susan Constantino, President & CEO of Cerebral Palsy
Associations of New York State (CP of NYS).

Cox: Shame on Democrat Chairman for Abusing Taxpayer Money

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: David Laska
dlaska@nygop.org
518.462.2601

ALBANY... NYGOP Chair Ed Cox released the following statement after the New York Post reported this morning that Democratic Party Chairman Keith Wright has been abusing taxpayer money by collecting per-diem expenses when he's not in Albany: 
 
"Shame on Keith Wright for treating taxpayer money like his personal trough via this apparent abuse of per-diems.
 
"It's even more absurd that through his spokesman, Wright claims that the Comptroller's office is reviewing his per-diem claims. Does Keith Wright think we've forgotten that he is one of the people responsible for the deal in the middle of the night that made Tom DiNapoli Comptroller in the first place?
 
"Taxpayer money is sacred, and Albany Democrats' culture of entitlement to public funds must end."

Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor 
For Immediate Release

May 21, 2014

Lalor: Silver & His Minions Have Odd Way of Commemorating Memorial Day


Albany, NY - (5/21/14) – New York State Assemblyman Kieran Michael Lalor (R,C,I - Fishkill) expressed outrage over the Sheldon Silver-controlled Veterans' Affairs Committee rejecting without debate and for purely political purposes, a series of bills that would help New York veterans.

“In Sheldon Silver’s Assembly, even widely popular bills that would benefit our vets fall victim to the culture of bitter hyper-partisanship Silver perpetuates. Bills that would help our veterans are put on the Kill List simply because they have Republican sponsors,” said Lalor.

“The Kill List is the list of all Republican-sponsored bills that get voted down by an Assembly committee. The bills are usually killed in one innocuous sounding vote by a dozen or so Democrats on a committee to 'hold' all the bills not blessed by Speaker Sheldon Silver,” continued Lalor.

“At a minimum the bills killed yesterday by Silver’s Veterans' Affairs Committee deserve to be debated on the floor of the Assembly and voted on by the entire body. I’d be willing to bet each of these bills would pass with near unanimous support.”

On the last session day before Memorial Day, Silver’s Veterans' Affairs Committee killed, without discussion, the following bills simply because they were sponsored by Republican lawmakers:

A.04132: Provides veterans of the armed forces of the United States with a pass that gives them access to all state parks and recreational facilities without the charge of any admission.

A.3201:  Provides that the periods of the Iranian Hostage Crisis and from November 21, 1979 to October 20, 1981 be "time of war" periods for civil service credit.

A.0467: Requires the executive director of the office of real property services to create a list of documents which support a veterans eligibility when applying for real property tax exemptions.

A.3202:  Grants real property tax exemption to service disabled veterans with a VA disability rating of 60% rating regardless of whether he or she served during a “period of war”.

A.5029: Includes the war on terrorism which commenced in 2001, within the definition of "period of war" for purposes of the veterans alternative property tax exemption.

A.5255:  Declares the Vietnam Veterans of America to be benevolent orders and grants such organization various benefits available to specified veterans' organizations.

A.5852: Amends the Real Property Tax Law, to read that "active duty" means full time duty in the United States armed forces, including duty of reservists called up during wartime regardless of time period, other than active duty for training.

A.6497:  To allow New York State to apply, pursuant to the U.S.  Department  of Veterans  Affairs  Aid  to  States  for  Establishment,  Expansion and Improvement of Veterans Cemeteries, for  the  funds  and  approval  to acquire  land  for  and  establish,  operate  and maintain a veteran's cemetery in Seneca County.

A.8152:  Grants recognized veterans' organization free use of pavilions at state parks, other state recreational facilities, and historic sites.

A.8626: Allows an otherwise qualified veteran to receive the eligible funds exemption or the alternative veterans property tax exemption on his or her primary residence if the residence is owned by a limited liability company (LLC) which is owned by the veteran.


All the Democrats on the committee in attendance dutifully followed Silver’s orders and voted to kill these bills without debate, ensuring that the full Assembly would never be able to vote on the bills. They are:

Assmb. Didi Barrett (D)
Assmb. Anthony Brindisi (D)
Assmb. Michael Cusick (D)
Assmb. Michael DenDekker (D)
Assmb. Donna Lupardo (D)
Assmb. Michael Miller (D)
Assmb. Catherine Nolan (D)
Assmb. Sean Ryan (D)
Assmb. Michelle Schimel (D)
Assmb. Robert Sweeney (D)
Assmb. Michael Benedetto (D)

“Eleven years ago when I deployed to Iraq as a S.A.W. gunner with a New York-based Marine Corps Reserve unit, we never cared whether the Marines we were serving with were Republicans or Democrats. Serving the country in the armed forces is nonpartisan. It is a disgrace that legislation that would benefit those who served our country is being blocked by the petty partisanship of Sheldon Silver and the Assembly Democrats who keep him in power,” concluded Lalor
.

Welcome to the Democratic Convention!


So the Democratic Convention is underway, and things are off to a rough start.
 
This morning, Andrew Cuomo replaced Assemblyman Keith Wright, his hand-picked Democratic Party Chairman, who earlier this week was busted by the New York Post for stealing taxpayer money via fake per-diem claims.
 
And then there's the matter of the next Lieutenant Governor. So far, Cuomo is without a running mate. Well we gave that some thought, and here's what we came up with: considering that Cuomo's entire rationale for reelection is based on the demonstrably false lie that New York is "open for business," why not Baghdad Bob?
 
Of course, Baghdad Bob may be tied up with the Sean Eldridge campaign. But it's worth giving him a call.

SENATOR GREG BALL HONORS BREWSTER FIREFIGHTER FOR HEROIC LIFE-SAVING ACTIONS
[Photo Attached]
Albany, N.Y. – 05/19/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, paid tribute to a Brewster firefighter Ryan Blackwell on Monday afternoon for his prompt and heroic actions on September 14, 2013.
Ryan Blackwell was officially recognized by the New York State Senate with a Senate Resolution for his heroism in rescuing a 54 year-old Bronx woman from a fatal apartment fire. He discovered her on the floor of a smoke-filled hallway after fighting to keep the fire from spreading.
“Ryan Blackwell is a true hero. I commend him for his swift and heroic efforts that saved a woman’s life from a devastating fire. I was proud to bring this gentleman up to Albany to personally thank him for his quick response to the scene,” said Senator Greg Ball.
“I am humbled to receive recognition from Senator Ball for doing what I consider to be my basic duty. As firefighters, we do what we do not for recognition, but to save lives. I am very proud and thankful for this huge honor,” said firefighter Ryan Blackwell of Brewster.
Ryan, along with several other crew members, knocked down the door to enter the burning building when they realized the fire was moving from the kitchen into the hallway. After pushing the fire back into the kitchen with an extinguisher, he discovered the body of an unconscious woman while feeling his way down the hall. Ryan disregarded his own personal safety in order to remove the woman from harm’s way.
Ryan realized his dream of following in his late father's footsteps when he became a New York City firefighter. His father, Christopher Blackwell, a decorated member of FDNY Rescue 3, was killed during the events of September 11, 2001. Prior to joining the New  York  City  Fire  Department, Ryan was a volunteer firefighter with the Putnam Lake Fire Department.

SENATOR GREG BALL ISSUES STATEMENT ON MEDICAL MARIJUANA COMMITTEE VOTE

Albany, N.Y. – 05/20/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I – Patterson), member of the New York State Senate Health Committee, issued the following statement regarding (4406B) legislation that is scheduled to be voted on in committee at noon on Tuesday, May 20, 2014.

“Nearly every week we hear of another heroin overdose in our community. Most, if not all, of these overdose victims started with marijuana as teenagers. Studies conclusively prove Marijuana as a gateway drug and harmful to the developing brain and body. Simply stated, smoking pot is not medicine. That said, there are countless options to help those suffering currently, including smokeless vapor, oils, tinctures and pills that can immediately and effectively provide relief to many patients right now, including innocent children suffering from debilitating seizures, without embracing and expanding the current drug culture. By rejecting smoking as a delivery vehicle and embracing these advances we can compassionately help those suffering from a wide range of medical conditions, without recklessly causing more harm than good. Let’s help people without worsening our current drug culture, by rejecting the greed driven push for the outright legalization of recreational marijuana,” said Senator Greg Ball.

SENATOR GREG BALL HONORS PURPLE HEART HOMES ON NYS SENATE FLOOR
 [Photo Attached]
Albany, N.Y. – 05/20/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, honored Purple Heart Homes and its co-founders, Dale Beatty and John Gallina on the New York State Senate Floor.
John Beatty and John Gallina were officially recognized by the New York State Senate with a Senate Resolution on behalf of those who have served to protect our country’s freedom in times of war, as well as times of peace. Purple Heart Homes and its’ founders were commended for their dedicated service to the veterans in their community and the State of New York.
“It is my distinct honor to recognize the work that Dale and John do every day for our veterans. Purple Heart homes deserves a special salute from the New York State Senate,” said Senator Greg Ball. “With the help of Purple Heart Homes, we are renovating Private Dan Flanigan’s home in Pawling, to give him the welcome home that he never fully received. As a nation we must do better, and while we can’t change the world, we can change the world for this hero, and we will.”
“Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmen leaving active duty are instructed to reintegrate to their communities. However, communities are given little to no instruction of their portion - in assisting our Veterans in maintaining or obtaining the American Dream,” said Dale Beatty. “It is not our government, nor any agency or administration that can ensure a proper reintegration, but each one of us as individual citizens who retain the honor of uplifting and caring for our nations’ heroes and their families. It is our mission at Purple Heart Homes, to inspire and provide the leadership and support that communities need to create housing and homeownership solutions for our Veterans.”
Dale Beatty and John Gallina were deployed in January 2004, for a tour with the National Guard Readiness NCO for the Statesville Unit. Both were again deployed to Iraq in 2004 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, where their unit was attached directly to the 1st Infantry Division near Bayji, Iraq.
On November 15,  2004,  while  on  a  patrol  route  with  active insurgent operations, Dale Beatty’s vehicle was hit by antitank mines. The explosion left him a double amputee below the knees. He spent over a year at Walter Reed Army Medical Center learning how to walk using prosthetic legs.
As a result of the challenges he faced after returning home, Dale Beatty and his fellow soldier John Gallina wanted to help other  service connected  disabled veterans with their housing solutions. Together they co-founded Purple Heart Homes with funds from their disability checks to help veterans and their caregivers who served in the military.
The Purple Heart Homes organization is currently made up of volunteers and professionals who share a common belief and desire to give back to those who have given so much for their country. The ultimate goal of the organization is to enable the veteran to be a functioning  member of their  family, as well as a contributing member of their community.
An initiative began in Mahopac, NY on September 12, 2013 when the community gathered together to renovate a home for service-connected disabled veteran Daniel Flanigan, from Senator Ball’s District. Private Daniel Flanigan, a 100% service-connected disabled Vietnam Veteran, was selected after a thorough vetting process by Purple Heart Homes.
Renovation will begin in June, and will be tied in with Army Week Association. Work on the project is expected to take at least four months. An official Welcome Home Ceremony will be held for Private Daniel Flanigan when the renovations have been completed.

SENATOR BALL HONORS YORKTOWN VIETNAM VETERAN AND FORMER CEO OF HBO AT NYS VETERANS’ HALL OF FAME
[Photo Attached]
Albany, N.Y. – 05/21/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (R, C, I –Patterson), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, honored Vietnam Veteran Bill Nelson from Yorktown at the New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame Monday afternoon.
The New York State Senate Veterans' Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life. Senator’s from each district across New York State recognized veterans from their district during Monday’s ceremony.
Bill Nelson previously served as the CEO of HBO, a position he held since May 2007, until his retirement in the beginning of 2013. He is currently the Chairman and CEO of Eleven Bravo Enterprises, a consulting firm he founded in 2013. 
Mr. Nelson has received numerous awards and recognition for his work on behalf of our veterans, including the Veterans Advantage TOPVET Award and the Vietnam Veterans of America’s Excellence In The Arts Award, as well as their highest award, The Commendation Medal for Exemplary Service to Veterans and the Community. In 2013, Mr. Nelson received the U.S. Army’s inaugural Soldier’s Patriot Award.
“I am extremely proud to have had the opportunity to honor Bill Nelson at this year’s Veterans’ Hall of Fame. He has demonstrated an immense dedication to serving his country, and his patriotism should not go unrecognized,” said Senator Greg Ball. “Recently, Mr. Nelson has joined our efforts and has been a driving force behind the 6% service-connected disabled veteran state set aside that was just signed by Governor Cuomo.” 
“It is extremely  humbling for me to be chosen by Senator Greg Ball to join the NYS Senate's Veterans Hall of Fame and stand alongside my very distinguished and dedicated fellow veterans also named to the Hall of Fame. We all share a deep commitment to bring honor, respect and support to those who went into harm’s way, especially our post-9/11 veterans, to preserve America's freedom and now need assistance,” said  Bill Nelson of Yorktown. “We are motivated to do so not for recognition, but because it is simply the right thing to do. This is a great privilege for me and I thank Senator Ball and his fellow senators for recognizing the veterans of this great State.”
Bill Nelson is a Vietnam combat veteran, having served with the U.S. Army’s 2/502nd “Strike Force” Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. His awards and decorations include the Combat Infantryman Badge, Bronze Star, Air Medal, Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with 4 Bronze Service Stars, Vietnam Campaign Medal, Valorous Unit Award with oak leaf cluster, Vietnam Gallantry Cross with Palm Unit Award and the Vietnam Civil Actions Honor Medal Unit Award.
