    The new American ^ | 29 October 2012 | Selwyn Duke
    While watching television Friday evening, I was shocked to see my state’s junior senator, Kirsten Gillibrand, in a campaign ad. After all, this is New York and she’s a Democrat, which translates into anonymity for her opponent and her enjoyment of about an 87 point lead in the polls (okay, I lied; it’s only 43), and air time in NY’s market is pricey. Perhaps, I thought, she just wanted a tax write-off or vanity compelled her to put her face on TV. Then again, maybe she just wanted to see how many elements of propaganda could fit into a 30-second...
  • Gillibrand ducks debates with Long

    Adirondack Daily Enterprise ^ | September 24, 2012 | Ed Cox
    With most New Yorkers' attention focused on the presidential election, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's debate-ducking is flying under the radar. To date, Gillibrand's opponent Wendy Long has accepted five separate debate requests while Kirsten Gillibrand has agreed to only one, which will only air in upstate New York and New York City, ignoring the people of Long Island and the Hudson Valley. Out of one side of her mouth, Kirsten Gillibrand calls herself "a trailblazer for more openness and transparency" while out of the other, she says "no" to the chance to make her case for re-election directly to New Yorkers....

    Patriotic Voices ^ | October 2012 | Staff
    Former Republican Presidential Candidate and Chairman of Patriot Voices Rick Santorum announced today that Patriot Voices PAC has made endorsements in several U.S. Senate races. The endorsements are: George Allen in Virginia, Wendy Long in New York, Josh Mandel in Ohio and Tom Smith in Pennsylvania. Rick Santorum said, "These individuals are incredibly committed conservatives who will be tremendous assets in the United States Senate. Each of them shares a commitment to lowering taxes, protecting life at every stage, promoting the traditional family and a belief that the individual should have the power -- not the government.

    If Republicans ran the culture, Wendy Long would be a household name. She’d be a heroine. She’d be celebrated. She’d have a Barbie doll named after her. She’d be driving the election season. But Wendy Long is the Republican running for Senate in New York, and it was decided long ago that Republicans don’t win Hillary Clinton’s old seat — the “Daniel Patrick Moynihan seat.” (Nevermind that Jim Buckley was there before them.) Those who decide such things, however, forget that just an Amtrak ride away there is a Republican incumbent running for reelection for what was not that long...

    If things were different, Wendy Long would be a household name. She'd be a heroine, and she'd be driving the election season. But Long is the Republican running for Senate in New York, where calculations were made long ago to ensure that Republicans don't win Hillary Clinton's old spot, the old Daniel Patrick Moynihan seat. But such plans don't have to pan out. Long is exactly the kind of woman the Senate needs. A former Supreme Court law clerk, she left private practice at an esteemed firm to build the Judicial Confirmation Network, a conservative advocacy group. This campaign is...

    email from Wendy Long | Fri, 21 Sep 2012 | Jack Fowler
    Dear fellow conservative: Could there be a worse incumbent Democrat senator facing re-election than New York's Kirsten Gillibrand? And could we have a better challenger-a more reliable, articulate, intelligent woman; a more authentic, talented, and real conservative-than my old pal, Wendy Long? snip The act of political donating used to be so . . . provincial. But we're all smarter now: We've learned, too often the hard way, that every senator, not just those from our own state, but every single senator has a huge impact on our lives. That one vote always seems to matter, snip Without question, Wendy...

    East Shore Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, right, joins Wendy Long at last night's victory party in Manhattan. STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Attorney Wendy Long rolled to victory in the state Republican U.S. Senate primary last night, and will face U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) in the Nov. 6 general election. But Rep. Bob Turner looked to be the winner on Staten Island.

    One surprise win deserves another. After shocking many with a win in the 9th Congressional District last year, U.S. Rep. Bob Turner (R-Middle Village) was defeated by the conservative party candidate, Manhattan lawyer Wendy Long in a three-way Republican primary Tuesday. Long will now square off against U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a three-year incumbent, in this fall’s race for the Senate. “On the 6th of November, we will change the face of New York politics,” Long said at her Manhattan victory party. “The people of New York saw that I would create the sharpest contrast with Kirsten Gillibrand.” The...

    New York voters will head to the polls on Tuesday as Democrats and Republicans compete in primaries that will determine who will be on the congressional ballot in November’s general election. The primaries come as the state redraws district lines after the 2010 census, which saw New York lose two House seats (the 9th and 22nd District) because its population lagged behind that of other states. The two biggest races to watch today feature challengers to long-time House Democrat Charlie Rangel and popular Democratic Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who filled Hillary Clinton’s vacated Senate seat in 2009. Tuesday’s primaries will determine...
  • Pls. vote for Wendy Long on June 26 for NY U.S. Senator & here's WHY (a vanity)

    06/22/2012 10:06:14 PM PDT · by Sun · 27 replies
    Did any of you listen to the debate last Sunday, and forum by NewYorkFamilies.org on Thursday, featuring the three NY U.S. senatorial candidates? After listening I will definitely vote for Wendy Long at the primaries this Tuesday. Wendy Long is 100% pro-life, belonged to Americans United for life, pro-Constitution, worked for Justice Clarence Thomas, and much more. While all of the candidates are conservative, Maragos (sadly) has the exceptions on abortion, and according to the NY Post is tight with the NY GOP, which is too "moderate" imo. Turner is a very fine man, but is too open to the...

    Total overturn of Obamacare would be a complete vindication of the rule of law and a complete disaster for President Obama (as well as for Long's chief rival, Kirsten Gillibrand, New York's junior United States Senator, an enthusiastic Obamacare supporter who should have known better than to vote for it). On April 2, 2012, SILive's Tom Wrobleski reported that a United States Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of Obamacare is expected soon and "[t]he justices could uphold or overturn the entire law,...strike down the individual mandate only, or strike the mandate along with other provisions" (www.silive.com/news/index.ssf/2012/04/us_senate_candidate_wendy_long.html).

    Democrats — at least those seeking the Democratic nomination for president and those who are desperate for money from extremist Left deep pockets — are trying to "out-Liberal" each other on the Alito nomination, even when it is clear a bipartisan majority of senators intend to make the Judge Alito "Justice Alito" in just a few days. John Kerry, after launching the first international filibuster from the slopes of the Swiss Alps with the help of Ted Kennedy, gave a speech earlier on the Senate floor that rivals Kennedy’s 1987 smear of Judge Bork. Kennedy claimed that in “Judge Bork’s...

    Salazar's Splutterings [Wendy Long 01/26 12:18 PM] Ken Salazar, who has been completely neutered as a political force by his own scheming, twisting, waffling, and blowing whatever way he wrongly thinks a political wind might be blowing, is obviously frustrated. What would be the metaphor? Neutered cat trapped in corner? Never mind.... Salazar is stuck. He can't filibuster Judge Alito, because that would be political suicide with the great majority of Colorado voters who, like the great majority of Americans, want Senators to do their jobs and vote on judicial nominees. But, unfortunately for him, he chose to make his...

You need to come clean with the American people and tell them the truth: you have never, even for one second, considered supporting the nomination of Judge Alito, just as you never would have voted for Chief Justice Roberts. Your phony "concerns" about whether Judge Alito can be "objective" are a bunch of nonsense. You know that Judge Alito has for 15 years been a completely fair, unbiased, objective...
