NYYRC December Political Forum

This month, we are proud to host two prominent politicians speaking on the future of the GOP and conservative ideas in the region.


Featured Speaker
Our featured speaker will be Bret Schundler, former Mayor of Jersey City and GOP candidate for NJ Governor, who will be speaking about the future of the conservative movement and what Reagan republicans can look forward to in the "liberal" NE over the next few election cycles. Do Republican candidates go further by running in the Rockefeller tradition or the Reagan tradition?

Special Speaker

As part of our 2006 Election Series we are proud to host former Senatorial candidate Ed Cox. Although Mr. Cox's campaign is on hold, there has been rampant speculation that he might resume his candidacy.
Mr. Cox is coming to speak about the 2006 NY State elections and what the Republican Party will need to do to remain a force in NY politics.

Place: Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmens Club

283 Lexington Ave (bet 36th & 37th St), 2nd Floor

November Monthly Forum - Nov 10

Special Speaker

In honor of Veterans Day, we will be joined by Dr. Joseph Skelly, who recently returned from serving a year in Iraq. As Sergeant Skelly in the 411th Civil Affairs Reserve Battalion in support of the First Infantry Division in Baquba, Skelly was awarded the Bronze Star this past summer. His account of the Iraqi elections can be seen at http://411ca.org/skelly_nro_1.htm.
In his civilian life, Dr. Skelly is an assistant Professor of History at the College of Mount Saint Vincent, a true American Patriot and a hero.

Featured Speaker

Our featured speaker will be Alan Skorski, author of the new book "...Pants on Fire: How Al Franken Lies, Smears and Deceives"

Until now, Al Franken's continuous smears against his enemies while promoting himself as the "ultimate truth teller" have gone unchallenged by the mainstream media. Surprisingly, even conservative or right-leaning media have not challenged the falsity of much of what he says.

Alan Skorski has researched the facts regarding the allegations in Franken's last two books, monitored his daily radio show, spoken with people cited and referenced in Franken's books, and exchanged approximately 30 e-mails with Franken in order to provide readers with an accurate insight into how Franken thinks and operates. What Skorski finds is something very different from what Franken claims, and he concludes that, unlike many of the petty "lies" Franken writes about in his books, ...Pants on Fire reveals that Franken himself regularly lies, smears, and distorts what others say and do, ultimately discrediting himself as a "truth teller."

Indeed, according to Skorski, while Franken has called many people-from Rush Limbaugh and Brit Hume to President Bush-a "liar," "hypocrite," "cheater," "lazy," "shameless," and/or "dishonest," ...Pants on Fire amply illustrates not only that many of his claims are false but that Franken employs the very tactics he accuses the right of using.

You can purchase a copy of the book in advance at Amazon.com, although we will be selling copies for the signing.

Thursday, November 10th
Time: 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Place: Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Airmens Club
283 Lexington Ave (bet 36th & 37th St), 2nd Floor
Admission: Members - FREE, Non Members - $5, F/T Students - $2.

NYYRC Endorsements for 2005 Elections
NY Young Republicans Announce
Endorsements for 2005 Elections

SUPPORT CANDIDATES WHO BEST REPRESENT
THE IDEAS AND SPIRIT OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
TAKE STANDS ON PROPOSITION 1 AND DOWNTOWN DEVELOPMENT
(New York) - The New York Young Republican Club has announced its endorsements for the 2005 election cycle. After a recent meeting of the Board of Governors, where many races were discussed, the board members decided to endorse candidates who best represent what they see as the ideas and spirit of the Republican Party in NY and who they see as being leaders that we as Republicans can look to build for the future.

The following is the list of candidates the NYYRC has endorsed:

PUBLIC ADVOCATE - Jay Golub


MANHATTAN BOROUGH PRESIDENT - Barry Popik

CITY COUNCIL:

DISTRICT 6 - Josh Yablon


DISTRICT 35 - Tony Herbert

DISTRICT 38 - Viviana Hernandez

DISTRICT 43 - Pat Russo

The Board also addressed two very important issues currently facing New Yorkers. These issues are:


BALLOT PROPOSAL 1 "REFORMING THE STATE BUDGET PROCESS" - the NYYRC urges a NO vote on Proposal 1, also referred to as the "Runaway Spending Amendment." The members believe this to be an unconstitutional power grab by the state legislature in order to short-circuit responsible budget negotiations for the future spending proposals in New York State.


REDEVELOPMENT OF LOWER MANHATTAN - the NYYRC has voted to support the alternate development plan for Ground Zero, created by architect Kenneth Gardner and supported by the Twin Towers II Memorial Foundation (http://wtctowersmemorial.org). This is the plan supported by developer Donald Trump and the NYYRC also agrees that this plan is far superior to the Freedom Tower plan now being supported by the Lower Manhattan Development Corp. The two main concerns of the NYYRC Board were to have a more respectful and appropriate memorial, and to build two towers instead of one, single tower in the place of the former Twin Towers.


"The Board of the NYYRC is proud to endorse and support these excellent candidates, who are some of the best and most interesting NYC's Republican Party has to offer," said Chairman Robert Hornak. "We wish them well in this years election and look forward to working with them in the future as Republican leaders devoted to building the Republican Party in NYC."
