On September 13, 2018, Republican voters in the 122nd Assembly District will have an important opportunity to share their voice on the direction of the November ballot with the Primary vote. The Primary is between 23 year incumbent Cliff Crouch and first time candidate Nick Libous. We already interviewed Cliff Crouch on his record, his vote on pending Red Flag legislation, and this election challenge. Now we speak with the only other opponent in the race, Nick Libous, on the issues he stands for, the change he hopes to enact if elected, and who he is. This is an exclusive interview in a race largely overlooked by all other news media.

We present an exclusive unedited interview with County Executive Jason Garnar to discuss his thoughts on developing property in West Endicott, NY and the role National Pipe will have in that. We also got some clarification on progress at the opioid addition treatment facility, as well as addressing the opioid crisis in the region. We got to learn about the experience in taking on the position of County Executive and what Executive Garnar sees as the future role of SUNY Broome as well as job creation. This interview cannot be found anywhere else and goes beyond the soundbites major media normally restricts conversations with elected officals to.

Had a great discussion with musician and songwriter Dan Pokorak about just about everything going on in politics at this time.

What is the actual message of BLM? What do they really stand for? I went to a meeting of Black Lives Matters to find out, and the answer was shocking. [Note: the location of meeting was at United Presbyterian Church, it is misidentified in the Podcast]

With the 2016 NY elections over, and incumbent State Senator Fred Akshar re-elected, we discuss what are the plans for 2017. What issues are the priority and what can votes expect to see in legislation? Crime, taxes, minimum wage, the SAFE Act and 2nd Amendment, are a few of the issues covered in this exclusive interview of an elected official.

This special episode is dedicated to a discussion on a controversial topic: militias. Specifically constitutional militias, especially in New York. We speak to guest and founder of the New York Revolution and State Commander for the NY Light Foot Militia, George Curbello. We ask the questions the media won't ask but the public wants to know. It's an informative conversation that can only be found here at NO Soundbites Allowed.

To see the first interview with George Curbello, and our video of that interview, visit http://www.mvass.com/2015/04/21/discussing-the-2nd-amendment-ny-safe-act-constitutional-militias-at-vfw-478/

This episode is dedicated to speaking with the next generation. We discuss the 2016 election and current politics with Chris Almeida of Binghamton University and President of the BU College Republicans. This is an exclusive look into a segment of the voting population rarely heard from by major news media.

Well it took a few months, but we were able to lockdown candidate Jason Garnar inbetween events in his campaign schedule. The Democratic challenger for the Broome County Executive race, spoke without fear to the "Dragon of the Southern Tier" and addressed his concerns for the future and the Southern Tier.

We will work on trying to get a few more candidates on before the November election, so stay tuned.

It's taken a few months to secure the interview with Binghamton's 2rd District Councilwoman Dani Cronce. In this exclusive interview we find out all the projects and issues that have kept this new Councilmember busy, and likely to be busy in the future.

We were able to lockdown an interview with Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo (NY-123, Democrat) after she appeared at the AFRTC Vestal Candidate Forum (visit www.mvass.com for coverage of that event). That event was the 6 year anniversary of speaking with the Assemblywoman and covering various issue - which we addressed in the interview. She also shared with us some of the latest Bills and laws she has been working on and her objective if she is re-elected in November.

We then jumped a bit as we discuss all the ways that the major news media has been justifying the recent poll result that only 32% of the public trust traditional news media. Ranging from getting the stories completely wrong to racing so fast to break news that facts are corrupted we give examples of how the traditional media is failing the public. 

 

We jump again and address a pet peeve, no an outright disservice to voters - when candidates avoid contact with the public to enhance their election prospects. We use Martin Babinec as one example of this trend - and extend again the offer for Babinec to come clean with the public. Honestly not holding our breath on that or else we would have passed out 6 months ago.

Back from the Labor Day weekend and we start with a discussion about celebrating 9/11, the Town of Owego, and the national controversy that has caused. We speak with Don Castellucci, a Town Supervisor, about the privately funded monument and the efforts to preserve both historical fact and the memory of those lost 15 years ago.

We conclude the episode with a discussion about how the First Amendment interacts with 9/11 events and monuments. Plus how Political Correctness is attempting to alter history.

We go over the impact of the presidential and local elections on the Supreme Court, TPP, Iran Nuclear Deal and more. We look at how the Government is quietly becoming less transparent at the same time. But the highlight is our unplanned discussion with Representative Chris Collins of the New York 27th congressional District.

Rep. Collins exclusively shares why he endorsed Claudia Tenney in the NY-22 race, his expectations for the 115th Congress starting in 2017, and the need for voter turnout in November. No other news media in the Southern Tier has this interview.

This Special Episode is dedicated to 2016 3rd Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson. Though there is a backlog among media trying to reach former New Mexico Gov. Johnson, who recently hit 16% in a Quinnipiac presidential poll, we were able to speak with a surrogate for the campaign in New York - Phil Ricci, the former Vice Chairman for the NY Libertarian Party and founder of the Gennesse County Libertarian Party (he stepped down to work on the presidential campaign).

In Part 1 we discuss the achievements of Mr. Ricci, and some of the core tenants of the Libertarian Party. As for the 2016 presidential race, we discuss the current status of the Johnson campaign; Immigration policy; Legalizing (Decriminalizing) Drugs - especially marijuana; Crime and prison reform. Each is discussed in depth unlike what is found on major news media 30 second soundbites and summaries.

Part 2 focuses on: the connection of Prison & Crime & Education; Common Core; US Economy - National Debt and Budget; International Policy and War; and the future of the Libertarian Party post-Election Day; and more.

We hope to interview Gov. Johnson when he comes to New York, and your support will help to influence this. So Like and Share the podcast. Leave respectful comments.
