American anti-crime activist, media personality, and founder of Guardian Angels
Friday Highlight: We all know New York loves Curtis Sliwa, but after being denied entry from a voting booth Gizmo Sliwa has risen to stardom. Curtis tells Chris Hahn how his cat Gizmo gained national attention after being denied entry from a polling place on Election Day, and may even be the most famous of the Sliwa family!
Asian Americans are the fastest-growing racial group in the United States, and understanding their representation in culture, politics and society is getting increasingly complex.In the New York City mayoral election this month, the Republican candidate, Curtis Sliwa, won 44 percent of the vote in precincts where more than half of the residents are Asian, a rate higher than for any other racial group tracked. This came as a surprise, given the popular belief that Asian Americans, particularly the younger generation, are largely liberal.One of our guests on this week's show argues that the conversation surrounding the Asian American identity is often limited to upwardly mobile immigrants with careers in highly skilled sectors like tech and medicine. But a term as vague as “Asian American” includes everyone from an Indian lawyer to a Hmong refugee, and with that comes the complication of identifying with a phrase that is meant to define such a wide range of experiences.Jane Coaston speaks to two Asian Americans who look at the term in different ways: the writer Jay Caspian Kang, who thinks it ignores class differences and so is meaningless, and his podcast co-host E. Tammy Kim, who believes there's value in building political power by organizing around the identity and even across these class differences.Mentioned in this episode:“Time to Say Goodbye,” a podcast hosted by Jay Caspian Kang, E. Tammy Kim and Andy Liu on Asia, Asian America and life during the coronavirus pandemicKang's new book, “The Loneliest Americans”Kim's essay “Asian America,” in The London Review of Books“An Asian American Poet on Refusing to Take Up ‘Apologetic Space,'” on “Sway,” a New York Times Opinion podcast
On this edition of The Other Side of Midnight: We are starting our Friday's off right with Ask Frank Anything. Then Liara Roux, sex worker, organizer and writer, talks with Frank Morano about the possible legalization of sex work. Curtis Sliwa, former Republican nominee for Mayor of NYC, tells Frank of his post mayoral run plans. Also, the worst news you'll hear all week with the best delivery; it's denunciations.
Election Day has come and gone and the revolution against the Biden administration and their socialist progressive ideals has officially begun. The GOP showed out last night in a big way, as several Democrat incumbents were unseated by their Republican opponents. Friends of the program Anne Donnelly, Vito Fossella, and Bruce Blakeman all came out victorious in their respective races for Nassau County DA, Staten Island Borough President, and Nassau County Executive. Even the races that won't produce a Republican victor, like that of Jack Ciattarelli vs. Phil Murphy for New Jersey Governor, were a lot closer than originally expected. It's becoming clear that voters across the state and the country have had enough of the progressive left's stranglehold on our institutions, and it'll be interesting to see what comes of the mid-term elections that are set to take place next year. Now for the race that affects New York City slickers the most, Eric Adams edged out Curtis Sliwa for New York City Mayor pretty handedly. This wasn't for lack of trying on Sliwa's part, as he was a campaign warrior right up until the closing of the polls. Former Congressman Peter King joins Bernie & Sid to share his thoughts on Election Day, and Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani calls in to put a bow on what was a big day for the Grand Old Party. As always, don't miss the hump day editions of Lidia Reports and The Peerless Boilers Beat Bernie Contest.
The 2020 election was unprecedented, what with the COVID-19 pandemic and controversy over expanded early and mail-in voting. “There were more lawsuits filed last year before the election trying to change the laws and the rules governing the election process than in any year in our entire history,” Hans von Spakovsky, a senior legal fellow and election expert at The Heritage Foundation. The political left used the pandemic to try to undo requirements for voter ID and for witness signatures on absentee ballots, von Spakovsky, who oversees Heritage's Election Law Reform Initiative. (The Daily Signal is Heritage's multimedia news organization.)The question now is: How do we ensure clean and honest elections across America? In his new book with former Wall Street Journal columnist John Fund, “Our Broken Elections: How the Left Changed the Way You Vote,” von Spakovsky addresses the election issues of 2020 and provides solutions with which lawmakers can prevent voter fraud. Von Spakovsky joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his new book and why Americans should support safeguarding our elections through measure such as voter ID. We also cover these stories: Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin is poised to be the next governor of Virginia.Democrat and former New York City Police Captain Eric Adams wins the city's mayoral election, beating out Republican candidate Curtis Sliwa.A proposal to replace the Minneapolis Police Department with a new Department of Public Safety fails.Enjoy the show!

On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, Glenn Youngkin has a slight lead in the VA Governor's race, despite the Democrats' best efforts to paint parents as political pawns using racist dog whistles. But don't act complacent, get out and vote. Terry McAuliffe insists that critical race theory isn't being taught in Virginia yet parents continue to find racially divisive books and other questionable curricula that disguise anti-white teachings as social-emotional learning (SEL) and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Then, Herbert Marcuse and Derrick Bell are considered the founding fathers of the modern-day Marxist movement known as critical race theory. Bell argues that direct action is more effective than law and builds upon his own racist dogma while protesting against Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement. Later, candidate for Governor of Virginia, Glenn Youngkin, calls in from the campaign trail to explain how Terry McAuliffe wants to raise taxes and increase government control. Youngkin says that quality education is the number one issue and parents have every right to be involved in their children's learning. Afterward, Democrats want to nationalize everything. The economy isn't growing but if we stay on this course America will become a disastrous third world nation and the media just lies to cover it up. Meanwhile, the Biden Administration is considering a proposal to give $450K per person that was separated at the border in 2018. Finally, Curtis Sliwa candidate for Mayor of New York City joins the show to side with the Police, Firefighters, EMS first responders, and medical staff who will lose their jobs Friday if they don't obey Mayor de Blasio's vaccine mandate.

Special Extra Episode out today featuring the great Curtis Sliwa! If you are a New York City resident and wavering on who you'll vote for November 2nd, we encourage you to listen to this episode. Curtis discusses his plan for the city, not being the typical ' Republican' candidate, plus his rebuttal to Eric Adams accusing him of being 'racist' and more.
As Eric Adams and Curtis Sliwa hit the campaign trail in the final weeks before Election Day, NY1's Zack Fink, Juan Manuel Benítez and Bob Hardt analyze the state of the race and weigh in on what Sliwa, the Republican nominee, needs to do to improve his chances in a heavily Democratic city. They also spend some time talking about Latino politics. The community now represents almost 30% of the city's population, but a Latino candidate has never been elected to citywide office. Is it just a matter of time? Or is ideology more important than ethnic identity when it comes to such a diverse community?

Who do you trust to keep your city safe??? Republican nominee for the 2021 New York City mayoral election, Curtis Sliwa rejoins Bernie & Sid in the Morning, to reflect on the shootings that he caught himself in around a neighborhood, and the fact that he found a gun?! You don't want to miss this!
On Monday's Mark Levin Show, Article II, Section I, Clause 2 is clear that it gives the broadest power to the state legislatures to decide the time, manner, and place of its elections. In the contested election of 2000, the Supreme Court stepped in to defend the Constitution. In the 2020 election, they refused to intervene in the state of Pennsylvania's overreach. On Sunday, Justice Steven Breyer said that none of the cases brought met the criteria of having four Justices agree to take the case. This program has repeatedly made the case that the Constitution is clear that each state shall appoint the electors they see fit. Breyer was wrong and never cited which criteria he was referring to. Then, serial lying from the Biden Administration continues to go unchecked by the media. Even FDA officials are stepping down because they disagree with President Biden and Anthony Fauci's push for booster shots. Forcing people to get vaccinated is not the same as keeping a clean workplace under OSHA standards. Later, Secretary Antony Blinken is questioned by members of Congress and offers little in his responses on Afghanistan. When pressed on why nothing is being done to get Americans out of Afghanistan, Blinken said he was unaware of any such problems. Afterward, Curtis Sliwa, the Republican candidate for Mayor of New York City joins the show to explain how he's in the battle for a lifetime to save the City of New York. His opponent Eric Adams poses as a moderate when he's as far to the left as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and was mentored by Al Sharpton. Finally, California is no longer the land of opportunity, and it needs to be helped by Larry Elder.
