Nicole Gelinas’ excellent column in today’s NY Post is a reminder that government just cannot do what private industry does best.  Think about that fact when voting in November for president.  Do you want a businessman who knows how to get things done or a career politician who tells you government can do it better.  Obamacare anyone?

Tinari, Suffolk County Chair described Long as a man who is able to bring sides together while he fights for his convictions when he seconded the nomination.

Chairman Long, in accepting, thanked the delegates for their support, their loyalty to the Party, the many years of service they have provided and the sacrifices they make doing the work necessary to keep the conservative voice strong in this blue state. “You are the pivotal part of promoting the Party — elected officials have come and gone — but the work you do keeps the Party vibrant and strong and able to make a difference in New York State politics.”

Daily Update

The NY Post editorial gives Gov. Andrew Cuomo kudos for calling Sunday’s bombing exactly what it was.   “A bomb exploding in New York is obviously an act of terrorism,” said the Governor, unlike others.  We also agree with the last sentence in the editorial, “We have our differences with Gov. Cuomo — but, boy, do his fellow Democrats make him look good.” 

Hillary, on the other hand, is rightfully excoriated by Rich Lowry.

President Obama is so out of touch with reality!  Our Commander-in-Chief called the bombings a “Narrative” fight with ISIS.  What is even more disconcerting is that Hillary thinks like him.  Conrad Black opines in the New York Sun how Hillary Clinton may snatch defeat from victory’s jaws.

Daily Update

President Obama did not address the nation when NYC and New Jersey were bombed Saturday, nor did he say anything on Sunday, but had no trouble being in campaign mode.   It took him until Noon on Monday to acknowledge that “terrorist want to instill fear in American’s.”   The hard work of police and the watchful eye of a business owner made it possible to catch the suspect.  We now know that New York was notified of a possible attack prior to the actual bombing.

Leave it to Gov. Andrew Cuomo to defend President Obama’s silence.  (Less time for you in the spotlight, Andrew?)

Today we also learned that more than 800 illegal immigrants from countries of concern who were set for deportation were granted citizenship!!  Perhaps President Obama didn’t want to address the nation about the bombings knowing this.  Or maybe he was afraid that the Administration’s money laundering would be revealed on national television, how foolish of me to think that the main stream media would expose his rather foolhardy foibles.    I know this much, Ronald Reagan would have talked to American citizens as soon as possible to reassure us that he “had our back.”  Of course, with a Peace through Strength attitude, it wouldn’t have happened.

Wendy Long: Political Correctness is Killing Us

President Obama’s arrogant audacity actually led him to say this to the Congressional Black Caucus on Friday evening. To which I say — What have you done for the Black community, Mr. President, except make race relations worse, keep people in poverty, gave them “affordable” health care they can’t afford and have done NOTHING to bring the murder rate in Chicago down.   In all honesty, Mr. President, the Black community owe you nothing.

Weekly Wrap-Up

“The best evidence that Hillary Clinton is lying about her health is that Hillary Clinton is lying about everything.”  That pretty much sums up the news this week, after Hillary’s frightening health scare during a 9/11 ceremony.

Could Hillary’s health lead to Bill Clinton’s third term? History tells us it could happen.

Her health may be failing, but Hillary’s lying instinct is as strong as ever.

This whole incident is one more reinforcement of Hillary’s reputation for dishonesty – though there was more than enough proof of that to begin with.

So what do you think is the real story behind Hillary’s bout with heat exhaustion/ dehydration/pneumonia/the flu?

Do you think the situation is WORSE than Hillary & Co. are letting on? Do you think they’re telling the truth? Or is this incident not a big deal, as far as you’re concerned?

That’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll.

I’m also wondering, how important is it to you for the President of the United States to be in good health?  That’s the second Poll question for this week.

Meanwhile Hillary’s campaign looks like it has seen better days – “nothing short of a disaster,” according to one report.

 As a clear path to victory has emerged for Donald Trump, the Clinton campaign is facing sagging poll numbers, tight races in key swing states, and faltering support among young voters, as well as ongoing questions about Hillary’s corruption and incompetence.

How would you diagnose the “health” of Hillary’s campaign? That’s the third question in this week’s Poll – I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

Have a great weekend!

New York Times:  Poll shows tight race for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.  You know Hillary is in real trouble when the NY Times has an article on how tight the race has become.  MSNBC is frenetic with this headline:  New polls serve as a wake-up call: Trump could win presidency. CNN tries to undermine the numbers, but facts do not lie: Trump is on the upswing and Hillary’s constant lies, damage-control, comments and secrecy are taking their toll.   Yesterday’s Michael Goodwin column is a must read.

Daily Update

Welcome to the political world of Hillary, where it is permissible to insult thousands of people as being in a basket of deplorables, but, you cannot question her without being vilified for doing so.  Of course, Hillary did try to walk it by saying maybe “half” was wrong.  Hillary does have a long history of doing her best to destroy her (and Bill’s) enemies.  The Hill writes The media elites feel that shiver up the spine — and it’s not victory.  Fredric U. Dicker writes that Clinton’s ‘basket of deplorables’ gaffe stuns both parties.  

Hillary damaged herself on Friday by using a broad brush to paint Trump supporters as a “basket of deplorables”, which was minor compared to the video of her leaving the 911 Memorial early. As noted in many organizations — The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The NY Post, Fox News, TownHall — to name just a few, Hillary’s health problems are no longer what her campaign called a right-wing conspiracy . writes about Donald J. Trump’s attendance at our 2016 reception.  So does Real Clear Politics.  While not believing Trump can win in New York, the New York Magazine gave him and us some ink.  (It will be interesting to see what he writes when Trump carries New York State.) 

Michael Barron wrote this for Saturday’s papers, before Hillary’s problems surfaced. 

The Conservative Party is truly concerned about Hillary’s health and the video that showed her not feeling well is quite disconcerting — obviously we do not support Hillary for president — however, we do sincerely hope that her health problems are minor and that forthwith she is honest in letting American’s citizens know if she is healthy enough to bear the stress of being president.

So was the Washington Post.  The media really doesn’t think a Trump win is possible, here is Newsmax’s article.  They said the same about Ronald Reagan in 1980 and he won New York state with the votes cast on the Conservative Line helping to make it possible.

Daily Update

The Las Vegas Review Journal editorial headline nails Hillary!  EDITORIAL: Mrs. Clinton now plays dumb.  Here is just part of what they have to say about Hillary: “So now the seasoned stateswoman of media lore offers up the “I didn’t know what I was doing” defense. Instead of “smart” and “savvy,” the word “pathological” comes to mind.  “To the public, she claims to be a sharp professional who knows the score,” the Wall Street Journal opined over the weekend. “To the FBI, she presents herself as a clueless grandee who left the details to her minions.  Either way, she’s lying to someone. But that, of course, should come as no surprise.” 

How long will American citizens be fooled by this woman, or worse, not see a problem?   The National Review’s David French opines in his column,  Even if You Believe the Left’s Excuses, Hillary Clinton Still Violated Criminal Law,  “In other words, even if you believe the explanations and rationalizations of a known liar — as Drum apparently does — the undisputed, known facts still point to criminal wrongdoing. Hillary Clinton had classified information on her homebrew server. She sent it. She received it. She kept it. On this point, it doesn’t matter if she maintained that server for convenience or to evade FOIA. It doesn’t matter if records were wiped through a mistake or to evade a subpoena. Her behavior contains the elements of a federal crime, yet she is escaping prosecution entirely. It must feel good to be a Clinton.”

William McGurn, writes in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required) that even worse than the revelations in Friday’s FBI dump (on a long holiday weekend, no less) is that “… when the American people finally learned about Mrs. Clinton’s use of private email for public business, it wasn’t because of a functioning civil service. It was because of a hacker.”
