January 25, 2019 - Broome County, NY - We sat down with NY-52 State Senator Fred Akshar ahead of the expected votes on pending gun legislation in the NY State Senate. The discussion covers the ramifications of Gov. Cuomo's push on a Progressive social agenda, the NY economy and small business community, taxation, and communicating with the public - besides several firearm Bills. It was a candid and frank conversation about the consequences of elections, and the future of New York State.

After covering the 2019 Chamber of Commerce breakfast, we had the chance to speak again with Clifford Crouch of the 122nd Assembly District. We had the chance to discuss his reaction to the NY State of the State, his views on issues affecting jobs and the economy in the Southern Tier, and the pending gun legislation facing the State Legislature in a week.

As a public service, we present the entire town hall telephone conference call of Representative Anthony Brindisi of the NY-22. The event started 7 minutes late, and ended 5 minutes early. Our question was prescreened but never allowed to be heard. The only edit was deleting the 3 minutes 21 seconds of the prescreening with Brindisi staff.   

Live on WNBF on January 22, 2019 (verbatim) - Known Progressive activist Matt Ryan called in to demand investigation of where Covington students got MAGA hats (not recorded). He stated the hats justify the public attack on the students, and implied this was an indoctrination. This is challenged by political commentator Michael "Vass" Vasquez - and other callers - highlighting the compulsion by denial of choices Progressives are advocating. Ryan then called back, attacking intelligence of students and doubling down on call of indoctrination because he does not like their views. What do you think about this?

Jan. 21, 2019 - Binghamton NY - Gillette has made a clear case that they think men are an intrinsic problem for humanity - thus quoting toxic masculinity? But what does that mean? And why should we accept their definition of men over any other definition?

Egard Watches: https://youtu.be/x_HL0wiK4Zc

Men make up 93 percent of workplace fatalities. Men represent more than 97 percent of war fatalities. 79 percent of homicide victims are male. Men make up 80 percent of suicide victims. 75 percent of homeless people are men.

Sometimes there is a great reason why the internet focuses on a single issue or event. In this case it is Gillette (owned by Proctor & Gamble), and an ad attacking their customer base. To say that this caught our attention is an understatement.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has run through several excuses on why the State of the Union cannot happen on January 29th. Each reason refuted but the one left unsaid. That this is political and embarrasses the Democrats. She should be honest, but like funding the border wall, that won't happen.

The 2019 NY State of the State Address left a lot to be desired for anyone outside the small elitist circle of Democrat Socialists. While this prep for the 2020 election was red meat for donors, the rest of NY was chilled by the promise of high taxes, mismanagement, and resctive policies killing Rights.

Senator Chuck Schumer slipped into the Southern Tier for a quick announcement before bouncing away today. He spoke about hemp, and the EVENTUAL benefit it may bring to the region - but aren't NYers tired of the big promises that never happen (like Nano, Buffalo Billions, and Drone Testing Center). Plus, how dare Schumer forbid press to discuss the most important issue in America, the shutdown.

This episode we addressed the problem of deception trickling down from the Federal level to local politics. Secret recordings, ethics violations, and misrepresentation to the public. Serious problems that need to be stopped. Is this happening in your local Government? Are you sure?

Binghamton NY, Jan. 12, 2019 - An exciting and emotional simulcast via Facebook Live. We address the active lies of Sen. Dianne Feinstein as she seeks to prevent the public from exercising the 2nd Amendment. Then there is the lie of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, barely 60 days after her promise to serve a full term. Add in the actions of NY State, and the rush to enter the 2020 election, and it was quite the program with the public.

Without an attempt to be subtle, Sen. Feinstein in the Senate and Gov. Andrew Cuomo in NY are working tirelessly to deprive citizens of their Rights. The goal, in several proposed laws we discuss, is to punish 2nd Amendment owners for the crime of excersizing their Rights. All reviewed in about 15 minutes.

A new format we are trying is our "speed podcast". One issue, in about 15 minutes. Do let us know your thoughts.

 

Of the very few arguments made to justify not funding a wall at the southern border, cost is one of the big excuses. But the very same Dems who say its just too expensive to build want to spend trillions on social and environmental experiments. It just doesn't make sense when you think about it.

 

 

In the 3rd week of a Government shutdown over 0.01% of Federal spending, which has cost as much as the disputed amount, we look at the battle of principles that will cost more no matter who wins. Ffrom there we investigate the priorities of Congress and New York State - and if they will help or hurt constituents. Finally we delve into prediction mode to understand the seeds of an election campaign. All of it live to a Facebook audience.

Jan. 4, 2019 - Broome County, NY - Our first episode of the new year, and the issue of the day is gender politics. Or rather the inherent bias of gender politics. Plus the amazing Bills that are headlining the 116th Congress so far. Finally, believe it or not, the 2020 election cycle may have just started (and we don't mean Gov. Cuomo and the Presidential race).
