Create A Blog

Blogging has become an important tool in politics as it allows candidates to get their message across to supporters without the filter of the mainstream media or the cost of advertising.

It also enables ordinary citizens to participate in politics, be it supporting a candidate or organizing around an issue.

Which is why I’m looking for supporters who are interested in blogging for me. Whether its about issues in the 2nd Congressional District, local republican candidates or just a diary on what I’m up to, I’m requesting your help.

There are a number of free blog hosting websites available including Blogger and Word Press.

If you are computer savvy enough to set one up on your own, please create one and contact me with the blog name and address so that I can add it to my blog roll.

For those of you who are interested but need some help setting one up please contact my campaign at (516) 459-5007

Thank you for your assistance.

Yesterday I had the great opportunity to be in the House chamber when French President Emmanuel Macron made his historic address to a Joint Session of Congress. I was also able to speak briefly with President Macron on the House floor just after his speech and thank him for standing with America in the war against terrorism and for forging such a close working relationship with President Trump.

France is our oldest ally, standing with us in our Revolutionary War against the British. While we stood with the French in World War I and World War II, our relationship with France has not always been a smooth one. (Charles DeGaulle and Jacques Chirac were two of the French leaders with whom we had differences.)

Elected last year in an upset victory, the 40 year old Macron was generally expected to be the European anti-Trump. Instead he and President Trump have formed a strong personal friendship and solid working relationship. They stand as one in their belief that Islamist terrorism must be crushed and that Iran can never be allowed to develop nuclear weapons.

On the subject of Iran, while President Trump believes we should pull out of the Iran nuclear deal reached with the Obama Administration, Macron believes we can achieve the same goal of a non-nuclear Iran through other means. President Trump has said he will consider Macron's proposals. Whether they end up agreeing on the specifics, the fact that these two world leaders can work together is a tribute to them and a strong measure of their joint commitment to the democratic values which underly our two nations. It also sends a strong signal to our enemies -- including ISIS, Islamist terrorism and Assad's Syria.

Viva la France! God Bless America!!
