Congressman Pete King Attends FDNY Retirees’ Breakfast

Lindenhurst, NY - Congressman Pete King (R-Seaford) once again had the opportunity to go to the FDNY Retirees' monthly breakfast at the Lindencrest Diner in Lindenhurst. "These guys are the best and their breakfast meetings are inspiring and patriotic," Congressman King noted. "Each meeting starts with a reading of the names of any American military killed the previous month as well as the names of any of FDNY retirees who are sick or who passed away. Then the stories begin and the jokes and insults fly back and forth. I try to attend these monthly breakfasts whenever I'm not in Washington and always feel better for it. These are the type of Americans who make our nation great."

With all of the partisan political struggles that get media attention every day, it is important to remember that America and the world face constant critical and possibly existential threats.

Even more than Islamist terrorism, there is the severe threat of cyber attacks from Russia, Iran, China and international criminal enterprises. At the annual "Worldwide Threats" hearing, the leaders of America's Intelligence Community emphasized the necessity of protecting our critical defense, intelligence and industrial critical infrastructure from governmental and non-state hackers. As we saw in the 2016 elections there are the propaganda and surreptitious attacks on our democratic process.

Of course threats from a nuclear armed North Korea, a potential nuclear armed Iran, an expansion China and a resurgent Russia remain as do the ever deadly Islamist terrorist threats from ISIS, Al Qaeda and their offshoots and splinter groups.

We must face the reality that we live in an extremely dangerous world which is why it is vital that the Trump Administration continue to rebuild our military and we make sure that our intelligence agencies receive all the funding and all the moral support they need and deserve to protect Americans at home and American interests around the world. God Bless America!!
