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.

Nikoloz Chkheidze: A Heroic Georgian Patriot

Nikoloz Chkheidze: A Heroic Georgian Patriot              

By Robert Golomb

Dr. Chkheidze leading Georgian Parade, New York

The day April ninth, 1989 will always remain fixed in the mind of Nikoloz Chkheidze. On that day in his native nation of Georgia, 50,000 peaceful protesters from this eastern European country of almost four and a half million people assembled in the capital city of Tbilsi, calling for their independence from the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR/ Soviet Union). Soldiers from that communist nation, which had held an iron fist rule over Georgia since 1921, used brute force to disperse the crowd; the  result was the deaths of 20 protesters and the injuries of hundreds of others. 


Mother Nature: The Great Equalizer

Mother Nature: The Great Equalizer

By Joseph Concannon

“…The People of the State of New York have been subjected to a Corruption Tax.”

No one could argue that this last political cycle was contentious, partisan and filled with unrest and uncertainty.  The direction of the nation is about to do a 180-degree change that has some feeling unsettled.  Some of us find this refreshing and others are just downright combative and resistant as ever.  The Trump team is assembling, confirmation hearings have begun, and by the time you receive this newsletter we will have a new President.  Donald J Trump is now the 45th President of the United States of America.  Wow, what a year this has been!

President Donald J. Trump

All Americans Unite behind Donald J. Trump, our President of the United States

By Frederick R. Bedell Jr.

It is now official that Donald J. Trump taken the oath of office, and is now president of the United States of America. Now let me point out that as a nation we ought to be united behind our president and should show him respect for the office he now holds. Now many groups around the country are protesting, including in Washington D.C. That includes some in congress who are boycotting our new president and who did not attend the Inauguration, which I find most troubling. And yet nothing can change the fact that President Trump is now our president and Commander-in-Chief of our armed forces. We need to give President Trump a chance to make America great again and show him the respect his office deserves. He needs our cooperation and respect for America to be united so we can move forward and so democracy can thrive. Our differences must not divide us but lead us in directions that can unite us and help us to accomplish much in areas that serve the greater good. In closing let’s pray for President Donald Trump and that he succeeds for all Americans. Also May God Bless America in these most difficult times.

Video: Michael Cutler’s speech on the Immigration Crisis under the Trump Administration

We are pleased to welcome back former INS Special Agent, Michael Cutler to our club. He spoke to us for over an hour and answered questions on the immigration crisis under the Trump administration, which promises to protect our borders, enforce immigration laws and overturn Obama’s executive orders. But we also have de Blasio who vows to defy the Trump administration and keep NYC as a sanctuary city that will refuse to abide by federal immigration law and will not turn over criminal aliens. Watch the video as Mr. Cutler presents an informative and inspiring message.
