Hillary Clinton’s Remarks Indicative of How Democrats Actually Feel About Women!

by Jayne D. Frank

Hillary Clinton is a woman hardened by being passed over for President and by the endless scandals caused by her husband’s philandering through their married life.  She is also shrewd and  manipulative; she has been able to use those “skills” to essentially make her way financially comfortable through her married life and career.  They have served her well from her time in the Governor’s mansion with her husband, in her Rose Law Firm, in the White House as First Lady and now as Secretary of State.  This is a woman who has spent years having people wait on her, do her bidding, run her  errands for her, and has not had to worry financially about her life at all.

So in this stagnant economy of high unemployment, broken families, children going hungry and husbands and wives stressed to the limit trying to pay their bills and keep their houses, what does Hillary Clinton have to say about women?  She just said she can’t stand whining” by women who are unhappy with the work and family choices they’ve made in life and complain that they have no options.”  With 23 million Americans currently without jobs and over 700,000 women having lost jobs under Obama, it is outrageous that Hillary Clinton would stoop to judge other women.  These women are in the middle class;  they are tired from having two jobs, of trying to make ends meet with over $4,000 less in their paychecks under Obama, where family net worth under the Democrats is 40% less than it was before.  These women often work two or three jobs, they clip coupons, organize ride-sharing because of the price of gasoline, and they worry every day about their homes, their children and their family’s future.

The middle class woman has sacrificed a great deal.  They don’t go to the hair salon so their kids can get their hair cut.  They haven’t bought themselves a new outfit for ages and often now shop at the local thrift shop for their family’s clothing.  Many families go without nutritious food because it is too expensive now, often sacrificing meat and better quality produce and vegetables in their family’s diets and substituting pasta meals or other dishes that can stretch two or three meals.  After all that they have to do during the day and evening, they often have no time for themselves at night and just have time to sleep and start all over again in the morning.  These women are plain tired of what Barack Obama and his Democrat administration have done to them and their families.  They have no options for now.  They take whatever work they can get or they can’t find work; there is no chance of bettering themselves because there is no “spare money” to learn another trade or pursue further education.  I am sure Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and all the rest of their administration does feel people are whining.  This is an Administration that has done nothing for women in the past 4 years and wants a chance to do nothing for another 4 more years.

These middle income women are the real heroes in my book.  Unlike women like Hillary Clinton who DO have “endless choices” as she says the “whiners”  have, middle class women don’t have maids, they don’t have people to run their errands and take care of all those “messy” things that Hillary Clinton doesn’t feel like doing every day.  They don’t have chefs coming in and preparing meals for them, and they don’t have an endless supply of money.  And they didn’t have nannies come in during their careers to take care of their only child so that they didn’t have to bother with it.  So if they want to whine about it, that is fine with me.  But those same women better wake up and realize that the only option they DO have is their vote on November 6 where they can elect a party that appreciates and respects women and their families and will make the next four years better for them.

Hillary Clinton said “money certainly helps and having that kind of financial “privilege” goes a long way.”  Being able to have a decent job and earn a decent paycheck isn’t a privilege and obviously the Democrats and Hillary Clinton are so targeted on redistribution of your money in this Country that they forget that our Founders guaranteed “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” to all – not just the few like Hillary Clinton.

Candy Crowley’s Performance at Presidential Debate was Outrageous!

by Jayne D. Frank

-Martha Radditz during the Vice-Presidential Debate did such a non-biased professional job controlling the Debate.  In contrast, Candy Crowley’s performance last night was totally biased, disrespectful, outrageously intrusive and obnoxious.  Talk about a has-been trying to gain the spotlight for her own advantage.  It would be one thing if she had chosen substantive questions from the audience or if she had her facts correct.  Her actions would also have been excusable in part if she really was trying to facilitate the answers from the candidates.  But she was so much in the tank for President Obama that she couldn’t help herself.  And that was not her role as a moderator and she should never be chosen again for another prominent assignment such as this..

The time she gave Obama was 9 minutes longer than was given to Mr. Romney.  She cut off Mr. Romney on several occasions and in fact told him to sit down.  She was emotional instead of professional.  She chose questions from the audience that are totally progressive in nature and would lead to discussions about contraception, abortion, women’s rights, equal rights.  That was her goal and she had no intention of giving the millions of Americans suffering under President Obama’s economy answers to their most pressing questions.  The most egregious of her errors was that she herself “answered” a question posed to President Obama, and her “answer” was wrong.  President Obama lied to the American people for 14 days about the attack on Benghazi being conducted by terrorists.  There is a concerted effort on the part of this President to paint himself as an appeaser and as having gotten rid of the terrorists by constantly taking credit for the death of Bin Laden; so much so that he no longer can tell the truth.  Candy Crowley participated in this falsehood again by “answering” Mr. Romney’s question.

The American people were robbed last night of a sound, professional debate on the most prominent and important issues of our time; the debt and deficit, broken promises from Obama, lack of jobs, and the future for our country, and I put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the person who lost control of the debate – Candy Crowley.

 

 

Seniors and Older Adults – Obama is Playing You for Fools!

by Jayne D. Frank

Seniors, you have heard so many arguments about Obamacare and especially the argument from the Obama campaign that there really is nothing to the 12-person board established under Obamacare.  I will cut to the chase and make it clear and simple for you to understand with a few direct excerpts from the law:

  • The Board is established to make sure that “during the 10-year period after implementation, that there is no increase in total amount of net Medicare program spending.”  How on earth do you NOT severely hurt and ration care to existing Medicare patients when there are millions of new Medicare patients going on the program every year?
  • The Board is entrusted with the duty and mandate to “help reduce the growth rate” of Medicare.  Again, how do you reduce the growth of Medicare other than the options of rationing care, not paying your doctors to treat you, or throwing you out of the program?
  • The Board is to “improve healthcare delivery systems and health outcomes, care coordination, efficiency improvement.”  This board has been set up for no other reason than to take money from the Medicare system and give it to the Government to spend elsewhere on more “productive” citizens (to quote Barack Obama).
  • The Board is to look at direct subsidy payments to Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Programs.  Millions of seniors rely on Medicare Advantage and for Obama to say that these plans will not be affected is a direct lie to all Americans.
  • Qualifications for the Board are individuals with national recognition for expertise in health finance or economics, cost-sharing, etc.”  Do you honesty think those qualifications have anything to do with making sure you continue to receive good care from your doctor?
  • The Board “may accept gifts or donations…..”  Having previously worked for a Defense Contractor which barred us from receiving gifts or donations, do you think there is anything positive for seniors that would result from special interests getting direct access and favors from Board members?
  • Board members are to be given compensation (plus expenses) equal to Level III Executive Schedule Section 5315 Title 5 of U.S. Code salaries.  In looking up who presently gets this level of compensation from the taxpayers, the list is below:
Level III of the Executive Schedule applies to the following positions, for which the annual rate of basic pay shall be the rate determined with respect to such level under chapter 11of title 2, as adjusted by section 5318 of this title:
Solicitor General of the United States.
Under Secretary of Commerce, Under Secretary of Commerce for Economic Affairs, Under Secretary of Commerce for Export Administration, and Under Secretary of Commerce for Travel and Tourism.
Under Secretaries of State (6).
Under Secretaries of the Treasury (3).
Administrator of General Services.
Administrator of the Small Business Administration.
Deputy Administrator, Agency for International Development.
Chairman of the Merit Systems Protection Board.
Chairman, Federal Communications Commission.
Chairman, Board of Directors, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.
Chairman, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Chairman, Federal Trade Commission.
Chairman, Surface Transportation Board.
Chairman, National Labor Relations Board.
Chairman, Securities and Exchange Commission.
Chairman, National Mediation Board.
Chairman, Railroad Retirement Board.
Chairman, Federal Maritime Commission.
Comptroller of the Currency.
Commissioner of Internal Revenue.
Under Secretary of Defense for Policy.
Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller).
Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness.
Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence.
Do you possibly think that with a $16 trillion debt, that the American Taxpayer can afford to have its taxes increased , senior services cut and our Military cut to pay for Board salaries and perks equal to the offices above?
Obamacare must be repealed and replaced with a fair and economically feasible system which does not mandate and target takeover of our Nation’s healthcare system.  If you re-elect Barack Obama who has failed on every aspect of his job but has created the most disastrous piece of legislation of our generation, you will be responsible for changing healthcare quality as we know it.  Please get off your comfortable couches, rain or shine, tell your friends, and go to your polling place on November 6 to take back your healthcare!

The Ryan-Biden Debate-“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest!”

by Richard H. Frank

Unfortunately for the Democrats, watching Joe Biden’s performance in the Vice-Presidential debates gave voters a glimpse into the mind of a man living a heartbeat away from becoming President of the United States of America.

Obviously, Biden was conditioned to become the aggressor and dominate the debate and counteract Obama’s dismal performance against Governor Romney during the first Presidential debate.  His actions were more akin to those of inmates in a mental institution than those of a serious candidate for office.  His continuing interruption of Congressman Ryan and laughter when the subject of Libya and Iran were being debated made me wonder what was so funny about Iran securing nuclear weapons and the Administration lying about the attack and murders of Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

The Vice President’s visual actions showed disrespect and contempt not only for Congressman Ryan but for the American audience viewing his sophomoric display and antics.

Whether Biden recognizes it or not, he failed to defend the failed record of the Obama Administration on both the domestic and foreign policy fronts.

The pundits will declare victory for their respective candidates on style and substance – Biden failed on both fronts.

This election his the most important in our lifetime and our Country’s problems are serious.  Why would anyone in their right mind risk our future to a man living a heartbeat away from  the Presidency that displays traits of the inmates from the movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest?”

The Color of Barack Obama’s Character!

By: Richard H. Frank

Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. in his “I have a dream speech”, stated that we should judge a man not by the color of his skin but by his character. Each of us may define character differently. Although the dictionary defines “character” in vague adjectives that cover a wide assortment of situations and conditions, there is one definition upon which I feel we can all agree upon. Character among men is embodied within the action you take to carry out the “Values, Ethics and Morals” you believe in.

  • Consistency between what you say you will do and what you actually do.
  • Championing and putting ethics into action.
  • Moral strength. It takes moral courage to do what is right when it may cost you more than you are willing to pay.
  • Who you are and what you do when no one is looking.

William Penn put “character” in terms we can all understand when he said, “Wrong is wrong, even if everyone is doing it. Right is still right, even if no one else is doing it.” So what may we conclude from the above? Character is predicated upon the values and principles which a person’s beliefs are founded.

Politically, we use terms such as ideology, the rule of law and transparency to measure our leaders’ character against. Unfortunately, most politicians fail to live up to these measures and the values and principles embodied in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. The latest and most revealing look into Barack Obama’s character and that of his administration is evidenced in their explanation of what occurred in the Benghazi, Libya consulate the evening of 9/11/2012 leading to the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

It is amazing how quickly our President and his administration placed the blame for uprisings on September 11th in more than 20 middle east countries on a video trailer mocking the Islamic prophet Mohamed. Any evidence to the contrary was suppressed for over one month as it would prove to undermine the Presidents foreign policies in the region. One month following the attack as the truth continued to emerge we see that there was no uprising in Benghazi resulting from the video trailer and that the attack was indeed a planned coordinated terrorist assault upon the consulate. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice even in the face of undisputed evidence continued to insist the killings were the result of a mob gone out of control protesting the video.As the truth emerged the spin merchants in Washington began to construct their smoke screen to protect the President and his administration against voter retaliation with the general election just under 4 weeks away.

Following the explanation given by Obama and Clinton on September 12th the President boarded Air Force One to attend a fund raiser in Nevada leaving family members of the murdered Americans with a myriad of unanswered questions. So much for what the President says and what he does.

This week, a full month following the terrorist attack, the professionals within the State Department decided to come clean and admit they knew the attack was a planned terrorist assault from the outset and not the result of any video trailer. They apparently decided they would not become the fall guys for Obama, Clinton and the administration’s flawed foreign policies. Now that the can has been opened the administration is scrambling to keep the worms from escaping  before the election takes place on November 6, 2012. Unfortunately for Obama and his administration the lid has been removed from this scandal and the truth will be pursued beyond the election regardless of the outcome of the November vote.

Those of us that experienced the Watergate scandal and the eventual resignation of President Nixon for covering up a burglary know that the breech of the consulate in Libya and resulting murder of four Americans is much more serious than any break-in. No one was murdered as a result of Watergate but we have four dead patriots as a result of Obama’s policies in Libya. Congressman Issa’s oversight committee must diligently pursue the truth and hold those in government accountable for not providing protection to our men and women overseas in service to this nation.

If the color of Obama’s character and that of his administration were to be defined by the events on 9/11 in Libya, I believe it would be labeled as “YELLOW”.

The Miracle of Obama’s Arithmetic!

By: Richard H. Frank

Barack Obama uses the phrase “it’s arithmetic” to prove his criticism of his opponent’s revenue and tax policies. Yet when it comes to calculation of the unemployment rate in America the rule that 2+2=4 doesn’t apply. There should be no doubt in the mind of any informed American that the real unemployment rate in this country is substantially higher than that reported in the Department of Labor’s monthly statistics. Consider the following:

  • According to the Government between 150,000 and 175,000 new jobs are needed each month just to keep pace with population growth. Their own statistics show that this has not happened over the past year. Yet, the rate has dropped from 9.3% to the September bogus number of 7.8%.
  • Weekly first time claims for unemployment benefits remain above 350,000 or a total of approximately 1.0 million per month which is 4 to 5 times the number of new private sector jobs reported as created by the Department of Labor. Yet, the administration and the President takes credit for 5 million new jobs created in just the past 10-month period. These facts just don’t add up.
  • More importantly the Obama Administrations own figures show that the U-6 under-employment rate remains locked in at 14.1%. This is a direct contradiction to their reported 7.8% for September 2012.
  • The most startling and bogus number in all the calculations used by the administration is the available workforce in the country which has  magically fallen by more than 8 million persons. Where have all these people gone? Have they migrated to Mexico in search of employment crossing the border in the dead of night to become illegal immigrants?

The real answer is that “it’s all about politics and electing  Barack Obama for a second term”. We find ourselves living under an administration headed by a President that will do and say anything to be re-elected. The media dare not call out the administration for the lies and distortions they spew to the American public for fear of being labeled as racist. I for one could care less about the color of the President’s skin, but do care about the color of his character.

President Obama and his administration have repeatedly demonstrated a lack of transparency and a propensity to manipulate the truth to the point of lacking any credibility with the electorate. This was not the “Hope and Change” that many Americans voted for in 2008. Now in 2012 it is time to make a change and replace Obama and his administration with qualified men that have the values and principles that have made America exceptional.

Obama’s Law – Waivers, Executive Orders and Presidential Fiat!

by Richard H. Frank

Just another day in Obamaville when the Department of Labor issues waivers to defense contractors allowing them to ignore issuing WARN notices to employees scheduled to be terminated due to anticipated budget cuts resulting from automatic sequesters in defense spending beginning in 2013.  Under existing law employers are mandated to issue WARN notices 60 days in advance of anticipated termination dates.  Such notices are due on November 1, 2012 for those positions to be eliminated by defense contractors cuttings jobs in January, 2013.  This is just six days prior to the General Presidential Election and would certainly cast a shadow over Obama’s contention that he and his administration under his policies have created 4 million jobs over the past 29 months.

Initial reports stated the Government told Lockheed Martin they would assist companies with any legal defenses for failure to issue WARN notices as well as pay for retaining of employees and severance payments using taxpayer dollars.  Typically, when this became public knowledge the Pentagon stated no contracts would be cancelled as a result of sequestration in January, 2013.  More political cover for Obama’s failure to address this nation’s pending fiscal crisis in negotiations with Congress in 2012.

This is just the latest of Obama’s arrogant moves to circumvent Congress and the law through bribery to secure votes and assure his re-election.  Should any private enterprise fail to issue WARN notices under the law you can rest assured they would be immediately indicted by the Department of Labor and subjected to onerous fines.

This is the latest blatant example of an administration and a President that places themselves above the law.  Added to waivers issued by HHS to unions and Obama donors exempting them from provisions contained in the “Affordable Care Act,” Executive Orders in essence implementing provisions of the Dream Act for illegal immigrants, Executive Orders allowing the government to seize and control communication media, to mobilize civilians into work brigades under Government supervision, to provide that when the President declares a “State of Emergency” Congress cannot review the action for six months.

He has set the stage to seize total control of this nation through a Declaration of Martial Law in a total disregard of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  If for no other reason Obama and his administration must be removed from power in the coming election on November 6, 2012.

President Obama will view his re-election and translate it into his mandate to accelerate his agenda to “fundamentally change America” into something our Founding Fathers would dare not dream to recognize.  This is why he must be defeated Obama and return this nation to “We the People.”
