Epidode 2 - A conversation on the 2017 Binghamton Mayoral debate sponsored by the League of Women Voters, its implications and impact on students and residents in Broome County.
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?
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/
With the latest news on Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since Friday in the open, we stop to look at what this all means. What are the critical things to be thinking about as the 2nd Presidential debate of 2016 unfolds? What will this mean for the nation, and the world?
We look forward to your comments and thoughts. We also apologize for the cold. Most of all we thank you for the support and interest you have in what we do. Only your support allows us to keep going - both in your donations and spreading the word. Thank you.
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.
** As a side not, what do you think of the tag line - Dragon of the Southern Tier. Does it work for you? Let us know. And thank you for your support and interest in what we do.
** Upcoming interviews - Binghamton Mayor Rich David & Councilwoman Dani Cronce **
In this special episode we provide the complete audio of the candidate forum held at the Tabernacle United Methodist Church located at 83 Main Street in Binghamton, NY. The 6 candidates are: incumbent State Senator Fred Akshar and his challenger Sharon Ball; incumbent Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo and her opponent Dorollo Nixon; and the incumbent Debbie Preston with her challenger Jason Garnar.
We strongly recommend review of MVASS.com for our article Candidate Forum at Tabernacle United Methodist in Binghamton NY which reviewed the event and may help keep context of all speakers at the event.
In the coming 2 weeks we expect top provide interviews with Binghamton Mayor Rich David, Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo, Broome County Executive candidate Jason Garnar, and a few more.
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.
