#ResetTheClock: 28 Days Later, Nassau County Exec Arrested For Corruption

Photo by: New York Post
Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano, a Republican, and others have been charged with corruption a mere 28 days after advisers to NY Governor Andrew Cuomo were arrested. 

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano was arrested along with his wife, Linda, and Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto in an alleged bribery and kickback scheme. Here's the sad sordid tale from the New York Post:
The charges against Mangano center on his ties to federally indicted Long Island restaurant magnate Harendra Singh — and allege that Mangano helped Singh with business deals, and in return was treated to free vacations and other perks, sources said Wednesday 
Singh is assisting the feds in a probe into Mayor de Blasio’s campaign fundraising, the New York Times reported earlier Wednesday. It is unclear whether Singh is cooperating in the Mangano case 
Mangano is charged with honest-services fraud in connection with two Nassau County contracts. They involve the provision of bread and rolls to the Nassau County jail in June 2012, and the provision of $237,000 worth of food to workers in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy, sources told Newsday.
It seems like NY corruption knows no party, as, apparently, the same target is connected to both Republican Mangano and Democrat de Blasio have a common denominator.

Will the boys in blue be knockin' on ol' Warren Wilhelm's door soon? At the rate politicians fall in the "People's Republic of " New York, your guess is as good as mine.

“A Government of Laws, and Not of Men.”

Brooklyn Borough Hall
 That is how President John Adams once described the United States. I have heard the quote many times and immediately thought of it when I saw what a modern day Democratic politician (also named Adams) did to Borough Hall in the Peoples Republic of Brooklyn.

From a block away it looked as if I were somehow teleported to a third world dictatorship. I had to get a closer look and this is what I saw my tax money spent on- the glorification of our Most Merciful and Beneficent- Dear Leader, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and his deputy Diana Reyna.

Reminded me of...

Over the top? Maybe. 

Tacky? Hell yeah.

But even more than tacky, it is sad. Too many politicians think it is about them instead of the people they were elected to serve. 

New York is a one-party city and the politicians that rule over us here have a nearly 100% reelection rate unless term-limited out. I wonder why...

ICYMI: How We'd Debate Hillary

Election 2016, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Behind Enemy Lines Radio

In case you missed it, we discuss what Donald Trump should have said in response to Hillary Clinton at this past week's debate.

Russ and I bring you highlights from this week's debate - but you won't hear one word of what Donald Trump said.  Instead, we focus on what Hillary Clinton said at the debate and discuss how we would have answered.

We deal with Hillary Clinton's remarks on TPP, race relations, cybersecurity and more!

#ResetTheClock - Cuomo Confidantes Charged With Corruption

Time to #ResetTheClock, as former senior aides to NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been charged with political corruption.

For a few years now, Behind Enemy Lines has been tracking major political corruption in the People's Republic of New York by creating a "corruption clock" counting how long it has been since the last New York politico has had a run-in with the law.  Up until today, New York was on it longest run since the clock was created - 285 whole days.

Here's the report:
Federal corruption charges were announced on Thursday against two former close aides to Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a senior state official and six other people, in a devastating blow to the governor’s innermost circle and a repudiation of how his prized upstate economic development programs were managed. 
The charges against the former aides, Joseph Percoco and Todd R. Howe, and the state official, Alain Kaloyeros, were the culmination of a long-running federal investigation into the Cuomo administration’s attempts to lure jobs and businesses to upstate New York’s limping economy by furnishing billions of dollars in state funds to developers from Buffalo to Albany. Mr. Howe is cooperating with the investigation, according to a 79-page criminal complaint unsealed on Thursday. 
The charges stemmed from “two overlapping criminal schemes involving bribery, corruption and fraud in the award of hundreds of millions of dollars in state contracts and other official state benefits,” federal prosecutors said in the complaint.
I thought we'd make it through a year, but once again, the Empire State disappoints.

What Really Is / Could Be In Hillary's Emails

Wonder why democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton erased roughly 30,000 emails that by law are part of the public record?

Since former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton refuses to obey the law and has gone to such extremes as to "bleach" her server and destroy cell phones with hammers it leaves us here at Behind Enemy Lines Radio no option but to speculate on the contents of her (our) deleted emails.


Maybe some of the emails were classified? Maybe even marked as such?

Subject: Yoga Lesson Tuesday


The yoga instructor we love can be in town Tuesday. He will be flown out at State Department expense and give us 2 hours.


Subject: Chelsea's Wedding


Sorry to hear that your husband Anthony will not be attending. I wish bill wasn't either. LOL


Subject: Gaddafi Dead- Need Advice!


I need help. We came, we saw, he died,,,, Now how do I spin the killing of the Libyan dictator to not look like a hypocrite with my latest statements that my vote for the war in Iraq and the killing of that dictator was a mistake? Help!



Subject: Benghazi Getting Hot

Secretary Clinton,

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to serve in Libya at such a critical juncture in this country's history.

I have emailed several times and understand that you are extremely busy but I just wanted to keep you in the loop by letting you know that the local security forces do not appear to be capable of providing a safe space for us to conduct our work here.

Since the killing of Gaddafi the government has basically collapsed. Need guidance.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Chris Stevens
United States Ambassador to Libya


Subject: Prescription Refills


Please ensure that Julie refills my prescriptions prior to our departure for the Asia conference. I can't afford another close call with the press. I can't stand Matt Drudge and those f-ing pictures he posts.


Subject: Black Vote


This guy in the White House is so f-ng lazy. I can't believe I lost to this guy. If I didn't need his black voting block I would start distancing myself from him now. At some point we may have to cut our losses because this moron is gonna ruin my campaign. Thoughts?


Subject: Earpiece


That earpiece worked like a charm. Do you think we could get it to work at a debate? Do you think anyone would notice?


Subject: Miss You...


I can't wait for us to be alone again. I have never felt so alive. You are amazing...


Your guess is as good as ours. Until the emails are released in full we'll never know....

ICYMI: TWT Opinion Editor David Keene!

This week, we welcome a good friend of the show, the Opinion Editor of the Washington Times, David Keene, who just released a fantastic new book, "Shall Not Be Infringed", charting the history of the fight against gun control.

Shall Not Be Infringed: The New Assaults on Your Second Amendment is a history of the relatively short gun control debate in America and a revealing description of how those hostile to the Second Amendment use polls, studies, and numbers to confuse the public. Expert progun advocates David Keene and Thomas Mason tell the story of the battle fought in the courts, Congress, and state legislatures across the country as well as in the media and even the United Nations. Guns have become a symbol over which battle after battle is fought, all the while hiding the endgame of a cultural shift to government dominance.

Plus, Gene and Russ discuss whether Hillary Clinton really is that sick or if it's just tin-foil-hat material, and the seeming-implosion of Fox News.

And then, find out how Russ got into a Facebook argument without even having a Facebook account, and the words that prompted one listener to sound off!
