No Presidential Run for Long Island’s Peter King

first_imgThe GOP field is already crowded even without King. There are currently 14 candidates, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who announced a run earlier this week. The terrain is likely to get even more cramped with Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker expected to announce bids for the nomination, which would bring to 16 the number of Republican presidential candidates.King, the current chairman of the House subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, had been mulling a run since at least July 2013. That summer, King emailed donors and acknowledged having misgivings about potential candidates’ ability to handle national security issues.“While I’m nowhere near ready to declare my candidacy, I am concerned about the lack of a coherent national security and homeland security and counterterrorism policy by the Republican Party,” King said in the email. “So, I won’t rule out a possible run.”RELATED: Law Enforcement, Peter King At Odds About Which Extremist Groups Pose Greatest ThreatsKing then hit the road. He traveled to New Hampshire nine times and made stops in Rhode Island and Vermont, he told CNN.Over the years, King has built a reputation as a national security hawk. He frequently appears on cable news programs to discuss counterterrorism issues, thus building his reputation among like-minded Americans outside New York State.In his interview, King said he was “concerned” that Sens. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) were monopolizing “the airwaves,” and “getting out what they thought was their Republican message.”“I wanted to counter that,” King said.The Congressman has not been shy about criticizing Paul and Cruz for their positions. In May, he said Paul should seek the “Democratic nomination,” and also blasted Kentucky’s junior senator for critical comments he has made about the National Security Agency.

But, if such a game would occur, Long Island’s most outspoken Congressman would not even be on the bench, forget about mowing down batters with high heat.Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), LI’s most provocative and boisterous elected official, acknowledged Wednesday he is not seeking the Republican nomination for president. King had been toying with the idea for nearly two years, teasing Long Islanders unenthusiastic about former Republican Gov. George Pataki’s candidacy.“I’ve decided not to run,” King told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Wednesday. “It was a great experience. I would loved to have the opportunity to run, to go all the way; I think I can more than compete with any of those that are in there.“The reality is as far as money, the fact that I do have a full time job on the intelligence and homeland security committees, it’s just not in the cards,” he continued. “I don’t want to be taking up other people’s time. I don’t want to have 19, 20 candidates, whatever its going to be.” As for his chief concern: “There are candidates in the race who are raising national defense issues,” he told CNN.King did not say which Republican he’d support, but he is willing to help if called upon.“I’ll do everything I can to work within the Republican Party,” King said.last_img read more

‘No assurance Luzon pork now free from ASF virus’

first_img“We have 200percent surplus so even if we ban pork products from Luzon we will besustained. We have sources from Cebu and Cagayan,” Tabuada said. Extending the banon Luzon pork would be prudent, he said, to protect Iloilo’s swine industry. “We will study,together with our governor, on how long the ban would be based on the updatefrom the Department of Agriculture,” Tabuada said. But for thegovernor to make a sound decision on the possible extension of the temporaryban, Tabuada said his office would be requesting for updates from theDepartment of Agriculture-Bureau of Animal Industry on the ASF situation inLuzon and other areas. There is no knownvaccine against ASF yet. According to the National Meat Inspection Service(NMIS), death is certain. Pigs die in a span of two to 10 days upon affliction. Tabuada assuredconsumers that despite the ban Iloilo remains sufficient in pork supply. Tabuada said thePVO is making sure ASF won’t enter the province. Entry points are beingmonitored such as seaports and airports. Oct. 22 last year,Gov. Arthur Defensor Jr. issued Executive Order No. 159-A temporarily banningfor 90 days pork from the Luzon provinces of Rizal and Bulacan and countriespositive for the disease (Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Luxembourg,Belgium, Bulgaria, Moldova, Czech Republic, South Africa, Zambia, Mongolia,Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, South Korea,China and its special administrative region Hong Kong). ASF is a highlycontagious viral disease that affects pigs. It causes them to have high feverand lose appetite. It also causes hemorrhages in the skin and internal organs. ASF is notconsidered a human health threat. However, humans can become carriers of thevirus once tainted pork is ingested or if people get close to the infectedmeat, according to the NMIS. The virus can alsosurvive even if the meat has been processed or canned, it added. ILOILO – There isstill no assurance that pork and pork products from Luzon are now free from theAfrican swine fever (ASF) virus, according to Dr. Darel Tabuada of theProvincial Veterinary Office (PVO). The provincialgovernment has also intensified its ASF information dissemination to thepublic, particularly the hog raisers, said Tabuada.
