SANITY... SAFETY... CIVILITY

Progressives brought soaring crime, failed bail reform, mass homelessness, recession.
I offer a better path.

Rebuild Our Great City
As an army veteran, I know what it means to have a shared purpose. Politicians have lost that sense of patriotism. January 6 made it worse. Use of violence and intimidation to change election results is terribly wrong. It’s time to move on and repair relations in a fractured country.

Extremists brought soaring crime… 80,000 homeless… a decaying economy. They are removed from American roots - Roosevelt… Eisenhower… Kennedy. 

We need leaders who solve problems - not misguided  extremists. We need to stop the crime wave keeping us in fear and preventing millions of wary tourists from visiting and supporting nearly 300,000 jobs. The WWII generation cooperated and built prosperity. We need to restore such patriotism. Read my plans.

     The more you know about Mike
           The more there is to like.

I present an innovative and comprehensive economic renewal package addressing both the national and local economy. From outsourcing to inflation to restoring domestic manufacturing, here is a long-term plan to bring economic prosperity, independence from foreign supply chains, and progress toward a clean energy economy.

A commentator noted: last month we gave Ukraine $1 billion in aid but gave Russia $30 billion for oil and gas. U.S. foreign policy must address this and these matters: 1) cripple Russia economically for its barbaric invasion of Ukraine by helping Europe quickly convert to liquid natural gas (LNG), 2) end China’s unfair trade practices and our dependence on basic needs, 3) affirm support for Israel and the fight against terrorism, 4) declare drug cartels in Mexico and Central America are terrorist killers of millions of Americans by drug addiction and dismantle these criminal cartels, 5) stop Iran/North Korea nuclear proliferation, 6) confront narco Central American states and responsibly manage illegal immigration, 7) protect the dollar’s currency reserve status, 8) end enormous trade deficits and outsourcing.

Overall city crime year-to-date is up nearly 44%. Restoring safe streets and subways will take far more than a little tweaking by Albany on bail. It will take major change and my congressional opponent, leaning towards progressives soft on crime, won’t provide the leadership needed to restore safety. We must restore common sense policing that respects civil rights, firmly handles crime, and requires judges to set bail that won’t release dangerous people.

Remain vigilant and promote treatments, but downgrade from pandemic to endemic (less restrictive). President chief medical advisor Anthony Fauci stated on The PBS NewsHour that we are “out of the pandemic phase.“ We risk permanent overreaction. Plummeting Covid deaths reinforces this. It has mutated many times. We cannot live as if it’s the same killer it was two years ago. We risk becoming a hypochondriac society overreacting to each virus mutation. I met people who were afraid to touch a pen (as if touching it would kill them). This is the legacy of fear trumpeted by experts oblivious to widespread trauma. We see troubled students, road rage, a crime epidemic, trauma. Its time to repair the psychological damage.

As your congressman I will put my heart and soul into obtaining federal funds to improve our subways, buses and infrastructure. From aging water/sewage pipes to poor subway service to tunnels supporting transportation, I will diligently work to keep our city vibrant.

Helping each other. That’s what we do in America. Government must do more to help senior citizens and ensure Social Security will be there for us… now and 50 years from now.

Affordable healthcare for all is important. I’ll do all I can to improve our healthcare system and ensure those left out, unable to afford healthcare, get the medical attention they need. Let’s make sure people can afford prescription drugs. Medicines must be affordable. I also believe mental illness needs to be taken more seriously in our healthcare system. The recent massacre in Buffalo has become routine nowadays, especially in schools. Every case seems to present someone who has grave mental illness and should’ve been found and treated long before they ever got their murderous hands on guns. As your next congressman I will take on tough issues like this and try to make our country healthier and safer.

There has been a shocking spike in attacks on Jewish and Asian American people. Murders, attacks on synagogues and hostility in schools are beyond belief. Anti-Semitic attacks jumped 400% over the last couple of years. Many in Chinatown live in fear. We need to have police prioritize this terrible problem. We need to end pathetic bail reform allowing hate crime criminals to get out of jail. We also need to have congressional hearings investigating the reasons for increased hate crimes.

We felt uneasy seeing people sleeping in subways or panhandling. Now it’s worse. We fear being pushing onto an oncoming subway car. Add mounting trash, drug addicts in subway stations and tossed syringes. An estimated 80,000 New Yorkers are homeless - one per 100. A real plan is long overdue. I offer one.

Housing needs real and rapid action. For years politicians (like my opponent) gave lip service to NYCHA and affordable housing. I have a comprehensive plan for intense and rapid action.

There’s talk of solar or wind energy replacing oil. It could take land nearly the size of Connecticut filled with solar panels or windmills to power New York City. It’s problematic. Instead, prioritize energy from inner earth heat (geothermal), ocean tides and fusion (like the sun merging hydrogen into helium). Fusion energy would provide Infinite clean energy. If only nature’s elusive riddle can be solved

I watched the events of January 6th with horror as did millions. I condemn violence as a means of overturning election results. I condemn those who violently went into the People’s House, defecated on desks of representatives, destroyed property (and trust), and implied violence is the way to deal with grievances. Such people do not represent the republican party past or future. Win elections with better policies. Fierce debate of ideas is acceptable, but never fierce behavior. There are far more important things than winning elections - like protecting democracy… unless you see Russia as role model. What people did that day was not peaceful protest. All politicians must acknowledge this. Country comes first, not political party. Our forefathers wanted democracy – not demagogues and hooligans.
