Suffolk County GOP Leader John LaValle: Playing The Winning Trump Card

Suffolk County GOP Leader John LaValle:  Playing The Winning Trump Card

By Robert Golomb

When on April 6, 2016 John LaValle, 48, the then and current Suffolk County Republican Chairperson announced at a Long Island Trump political rally that he was endorsing the controversial billionaire for the GOP Presidential nomination, many leaders from both the Democrat and Republican parties were said to be in a state of shock. While it is rare to have them agree on any political matter, concerning LaValle’s endorsement of Trump, who came to Long Island that day to thank LaValle (as well as several other Republicans) for his support, they were in full accord.    

“ It is strange to see Democrats and Republicans agree on anything. I guess it takes a Maverick like me to get that kind of bi-partisan agreement”, LaValle, whom I interviewed last week in his office in the Suffolk County Republican Headquarters, stated, wearing a broad smile on his face.

Every year during the mid-winter season, the spotlight is on our annual Lincoln Dinner, which has earned the reputation over the years as the most lavish and exciting annual Republican political event in New York City. It’s a celebration of our first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln, the Great Emancipator, Savior of the Union, and Man of the Common People.

The life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln provides much for our Queens Village Republican Club members to reflect on, whether it’s Lincoln’s profound faith in God, strong leadership during the Civil War, or respect for the common man, and of course the Emancipation Proclamation.  No other political party can lay claim to what Lincoln accomplished during the time he was the 16th President of the United States. He led the nation through our darkest period, the Civil War, abolished slavery, and united the nation in the end. We would do well not to ignore our unique heritage when talking about the origins of the Republican Party, and what we stand for. 

This year our club prepares for our 142nd Anniversary Celebration of Abraham Lincoln and all that he has done for our nation.  But beyond the hoopla and fanfare of the festive dinner party, the music and glad-handing with those we haven’t seen in some time, the significance of Lincoln is truly relevant in today’s political climate.

It’s been the venerable tradition of Lincoln Dinner celebrations, hosted by the Queens Village Republican Club, to present “lightening rod” speakers to energize and encourage fellow Republican patriots who are fighting overwhelming odds to win New York City elections. At a past Lincoln Dinner, keynoter Lt. Col. Allen West, the former Congressman from South Florida, charged us with the mission: “As the oldest GOP club in America, it is your duty to carry the torch for the Republican Party and its core principles for the whole nation.” 

We are proud to announce, Suffolk County GOP Chairman John Jay LaValle will be our keynote speaker at the 142nd Anniversary Lincoln Dinner on Sunday, March 19. Chairman LaValle will also be honored as the American Patriot of the Year, and there is no one more deserving of this honor. As former Trump Surrogate and the NYS GOP Regional Vice Chair, he will be imparting his renowned “winning spirit” to light the fire of victory in eastern Queens, at the dinner party billed as a “Hometown Celebration” of President Trump’s great victory. This is fitting, since our president was born and raised not much more than a mile from the dinner venue at Antun’s of Queens Village, where nearly every New York Governor, New York City Mayor, and President of the United States has been in attendance since the 1950s.


Are You the Victim of “Fake News”?

Are You the Victim of “Fake News”?

By Joseph Concannon

Has the American media lived up to their time-honored role in our society to “report” the news? The media, commonly known as “the fourth estate,” was an unofficial check on the three co-equal branches of our government.

When you woke up today if you turned on the radio or television you tuned into a fire-hose of information whose first and foremost priority was to capture your eyeballs, sell you a product, and measure the amount of time you remained on the channel.  True journalism as we knew it, has faded deeply into a distant memory.  Fake News has rolled into town and has left the individual to decide if they are hearing the truth or someone’s personal point of view.  The facts are nice to have, but unessential ingredient for today’s media outlets. The media bias is just over the top.


Heartfelt Praise for President Trump’s Speech

Heartfelt Praise for President Trump’s Speech

By Frederick R. Bedell Jr.

I would like to praise President Donald Trump’s speech to congress. He spoke on many important projects the administration is proposing, like rebuilding America, immigration reform, health care, ways to address crime, hate, jobs, tax cuts and an increase in military spending. But what got to me most and almost brought a tear to my eye was the mentioning of the death of a Navy Seal in the line of duty. He said,”We are blessed to be joined tonight by Carryn Owens the widow of U.S. Navy operator, Senior Chief William Ryan Owens. Ryan died as he lived, a warrior and a hero, battling against terrorism and securing our nation.” This was received with almost a two minute applause and brought his widow to tears. This was a great tribute by President Trump, which in my opinion honored a Navy Seal who gave his all to America. As a former U.S. Sailor in the U.S. Navy, I salute Senior Chief William Owens. I would also like to offer my heartfelt prayers to his wife, Carryn Owens who has lost so much as well as did all of America.

Catholics Defending Religious Freedom For All

Catholics Defending Religious Freedom For All        

By Robert Golomb 

“ When Kathleen Sebelius signed the ‘abortion pill’ mandate, the conscience rights and religious freedom of millions of Americans were  egregiously denied”, Barbara Samuells, co-founder and President of Catholics for Freedom of Religion (CFFR; www.cffor.org) told me in a recent interview.  Samuells was referring to the Affordable Care Act’s Contraceptive Mandate, signed by US Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, on January 20, 2012.  This mandate required that every employer with over fifty employees must include contraception, sterilization and abortion inducing drugs in their employees’ health care plan. Religious institutions, charities, schools and universities were included, with only churches themselves being exempt.
