Intolerance by Liberals in America!

By: Richard H. Frank

If the “Constitution of The United States” doesn’t suit the ideology of liberals in this country they will attempt to use the judiciary to rewrite the Constitution. For example, I cannot find language in the document specific to demand the separation of Church and State. Yet liberals have subverted the language contained in the First Amendment to insist that the “Ten Commandments” not be displayed on any public property. Public schools are forbidden from conducting prayer or using the term “God” in any manner that might offend the agnostic. And heaven forbid if any community across this vast nation should dare to display the Nativity Scene during the Christmas season. Just how far will America stray from the founding principles contained in our “Declaration of Independence” and those clearly stated in the “Constitution?”

The political elites see themselves as a ruling class “all knowing” and better equipped to determine what is best for the citizenry. They view history as something that must be altered in an manner consistent with their ideology and that is politically expedient for them to remain in office. What hypocrites!

Suddenly there is a movement among the left in this country intent on removal of any symbol that historically records the actual history of this nation. It seems to have started with State legislators deciding that displaying the Confederate flag on public property was somehow racist. Wasn’t the Confederacy real? Didn’t over 500,000 Americans die during the Civil War? I guess we should pull any reminder of that historical period in America from view, just as protesters are tearing down statues commemorating leaders of the confederacy during that time.

What would the response of the media and far left be should the far right attack the memorials erected in memory of Martin Luther King? Their attack on organizations such as the KKK and Neo Nazis and White Supremacists would be unrelenting and rightly so. The same should be the case for any attack on individuals or memorials depicting the true historical roots of this Nation. If we allow those in power to subvert free expression in speech or memorials we are surrendering our very freedom as a people.

Unfortunately, we have very short memories and are too lazy to study history unless it is depicted in a three-hour series on television or an movie that becomes the true basis of our understanding and must be accepted as fact. Thus we are destined to repeat the same mistakes of the past that cost millions of lives around the world. Politicians stand up and denounce the Holocaust of the twentieth century yet condone abortion as a right under the Constitution that has claimed a hundred times the lives taken by the Nazis during World War II.

On college campuses we see demonstrations against free speech where conservative values may not be aired for fear that they may change someone’s mind or ideology. Speakers are shouted down and property destroyed with no accountability for those committing these intolerances nor the institutions allowing them to take place. Whatever happened to justice under the law? If we don’t like the law we just ignore it. Thats Anarchy! Next if liberals don’t like the books in University libraries I guess we will just burn them. Sound familiar? Read the history of Germany in the 1930’s.

I fear we are becoming a nation of illiterates content to accept whatever the media presents to us in a 30-second sound bite as gospel. We are on the road to teaching our children to become mind-numbed robots entering a period of history akin to Orwell’s “1984”.

African Americans’ Real Enemy is this Administration

by Jayne Frank

Having sat through the entire Zimmerman trial with an open mind, my husband and I were not surprised at the verdict.  In a court of law, the jurors were charged with applying the law and that is what they did.  My personal feelings are that there are no winners in this because a young man’s life is gone and George Zimmerman will constantly be looking over his shoulder to protect his.  In the aftermath of the trial, the only people who will be able to heal are those like Trayvon’s mother who tweeted her plea to God to heal her soul; all of America connects with her and grieves with her.

Instead of moving forward though, the Obama Administration’s Justice Department and some Democrats like Al Sharpton, are bound and determined to take this country back into the 50’s.  Al Sharpton is calling for protests to take place on July 20 in 100 cities under the guise of honoring Trayvon and Eric Holder is said to be actually considering bringing a civil rights action against George Zimmerman.  Don’t forget where all of this started – in the Oval Office when President Obama said his son “would have looked like Trayvon” and then sent dozens of government people down to Orlando to put pressure on the prosecutors, the police department, the mayor’s office, the Governor’s office and the 4th Circuit Prosecutor’s office, all at taxpayers expense.  To insert himself in these proceedings so early on is a clear sign that he wasn’t the least bit interested in justice but in stirring up hostile feelings toward George Zimmerman.   Mr. Obama also was not interested in whether his actions resulted in protests.  Why?  The answer is chilling but very transparent.

The highest unemployment rate in this Country is among young African-Americans; our urban cities are decaying because of Obama’s anti-business policies.  And worst of all, the greatest oppression I have seen in my lifetime of blacks may be the huge monetary entitlements that this Administration is handing out to predominantly blacks.  These programs are helping to keep an entire class of people oppressed and dependent on the Government.  As a result, they have no jobs, no meaningful chance of moving upward economically, no dignity, and I imagine that this huge pool of unemployed African-Americans in this country is just ripe for protesting solely because of Barack Obama’s policies.

The Obama Administration knows full well how he has failed this country and his race.  And they know full well of the unrest in this country from all races  who are tired of this economy not recovering, so what does he do?  He distracts once again just like he did when they bungled the Benghazi crisis.  They are now propping up nationwide protests under the guise of honoring Trayvon Martin and it is a perfect scenario for him.  That way when the streets are full, he can say it was for reasons of dissatisfaction with the Zimmerman verdict and not because of his failings as a President and leader.

All of his friends like Eric Holder and Al Sharpton are eager to go along in this and I hope the huge number of African-Americans in this country who can see through what Obama is planning, will calm their communities and call for the President to put an end to any intervention in the results of the Trayvon Martin case.  I also hope that the FBI, who has already said that this case was not racial, will hold their President’s feet to the fire and stop this insanity.  Our country is made up of many different nationalities and races, but we are all one, and it is only as a united “one” that we will be able to turn around this Country to make it more prosperous, safe and admirable.

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.

African-Americans for Obama – Really!

by Jayne D. Frank

Our Divider-in-Chief yesterday announced the creation of a new group and a website devoted specifically and only to African-Americans.  Once again, President Obama plays the class warfare and race card and is continuing to pursue his divisive, social-justice agenda.  We are not African-Americans, Slovak-Americans, Italian Americans – we are all just Americans.  Our ancestors came here by the thousands in the late 1800s for one purpose – to enjoy the liberty that only America offered and to enable them to work hard and eventually prosper.  We worked together hand in hand through the depression, through World Wars, and economic good and bad times, all for the ultimate goal of keeping America strong and keeping food on the table for our families.

If I were an African-American, I would be SO offended by a President continually oppressing my race by making speeches to me that I have no hope as a Black in America of ever getting ahead on my own and only with dependence on Big Government’s handouts such as welfare, unemployment, food stamps or other “cash for being black” programs.   As a white person who has been both prosperous and poor at various times in my life, I grew up with a solid religious, family, and educational background that taught me to be responsible for myself, to be dependant on no one and most of all, to work hard.  That meant educating myself, taking two jobs when need be, and working my whole life, sacrificing “social and pleasure” pursuits along the way so that there WAS food on the table for my family.  I grew up and had blacks as friends, colleagues, and neighbors and never once felt that we were a society pitted one against the other, for any reason.

This Country will rise or fall depending on how we treat each other as a united people and if we retain the God-given rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  Barack Obama has oppressed the black people since he took office – look at our once great inter-cities like Detroit.  Giveaways are not the answer – personal pride is!

It is despicable how Obama manipulates and uses classes to further his agenda – Blacks, Hispanics, Rich/Poor, Educated/Not Educated, Private Enterprise/Government.  Everything and everyone is a target.     Anyone opposed to his agenda is accused of being racist and is justification for reparations to minorities based upon  past acts associated with slavery.  Wake up people!  Obama doesn’t care a wit about you – look at who his friends are.  Entertainers, 60’s radicals, and foreign heads of state who hate America.  This economy has been hard on everyone during the last 3 years,regardless of our social, economic and racial makeup, and the blame can be squarely put on Barack Obama’s shoulders for making things worse.

It’s time to stand up and reject this race baiting in America and for the media and “African-Americans for Obama” to say ENOUGH!  Only if we work together can we Restore our America.

The Office of the First Lady and our Constitution!

By: Richard H. Frank

As Michelle Obama travels with her cast of 40 plus people during her most recent vacation in Spain, we the American taxpayers are footing the bill for her extravagant newly found life style. There is no doubt that some readers will consider my comments as racist and disregard all and any facts that I present to show how out of touch the President and Michelle are with reality in America today. Let me begin by saying that I have no malice for Mrs. Obama and do not begrudge her taking a vacation to Spain or whatever other country she desires to visit just so long as hard working American taxpayers are not picking up the tab for the Obama family pleasure trips.

The last time I checked our constitution, Article II makes no provisions for the “Office of the First Lady”, nor does it provide for the President to create such an office. Yet it was reported in the Canada Free Press that Michelle requires more than twenty attendants at an annual cost to the taxpayers of Six Million, three hundred sixty four thousand dollars ($6,364,000.00). There has never been a First Lady, or anyone in the White House, to create such an army of staffers for the sole purpose of facilitating the First Lady’s social life. Hillary Clinton required three staffers, Jackie Kennedy one; Laura Bush one; and prior to Mamie Eisenhower social help expenses fell to the President’s personal account.

During my lifetime I had the opportunity to run a division of a large corporation. That division generated $250 million dollars in sales annually and employed in excess of 1400 individuals. My corporate staff budget never exceeded three million dollars and in addition to providing a good living for the families of the 1400 workers we made a profit for the corporation each and every year. So my question is this. What do we the taxpaying people in America get for the $6,364,000 being paid to accommodate Michelle Obama’s lifestyle of the rich and famous?

Let’s examine the salaries and job titles for those assigned to assist the First Lady.

  • $172,000               Chief of Staff
  • $140,000               Deputy Assistant to the President and director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady.
  • $113,000               Special Assistant to the President and White House Social Secretary.
  • $102,000               Special assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the First Lady.
  • $100,000               Assistant to the President and deputy Chief of Staff to the First Lady.
  • $90,000                 Deputy Chief of Staff to the First Lady.
  • $84,000                 Director and Press Secretary to the First Lady.
  • $75,000                 Director of Scheduling land Advance for the First Lady.
  • $70,000                 Deputy Director of Policy and Projects for the First Lady.
  • $65,000                 Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary.
  • $64,000                 Deputy Director and Deputy Social Secretary.
  • $62,000                 Deputy Director of Scheduling land Events Coordinator for the First Lady.
  • $60,000                 Deputy Director of Advance and Trip Director for the First Lady.
  • $57,500                 Special assistant and Personal Aid to the First Lady.
  • $52,500                 Associate Director and Deputy Press Secretary to the First Lady.
  • $50,000                 Special assistant for Scheduling and Travelling Aide to the First Lady.
  • $45,000                 Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady.
  • $43,000                 Deputy Associate Director, Social Office.
  • $40,000                 Executive Assistant to the Chief of Staff of the First Lady.
  • $36,000                 Staff Assistant to the Social Secretary.
  • $35,000                 Staff Assistant.
  • $35,000                 Deputy Associate Director of Correspondence for the First Lady.

Never in the history of Law Enforcement have there been so many “Deputies” located in one Sheriffs  office let alone in the White House.  Titles of Deputy Assistant, Associate Deputy, Associate Director and Associate Assistant to the Assistant just boggle the mind of the average individual. I don’t expect the Queen of England has this many Ladies in Waiting to serve her.

The point is that this is government waste at its worst, and in a time of economic recession in the United States you would think restraint would be the rule of the day, and the example being set coming out of the White House. Not with his Majesty Barack Obama the great community organizer. Instead payback for political favors and the Chicago way is the rule of the day and rewards in the form of “JOBS CREATED OR SAVED” as evidenced above.

Of course it took the Canadian Free Press to bring this to our attention since the American media is just too frightened to be accused of being racist should they dare to tell the truth. What a sad state of affairs we have come to in this country.

The real answer to the question I posed above as to what the American taxpayer gets for the $6.364,000 spent on Michelle’s staff  is “NOTHING PRODUCTIVE”.

Barack Obama-Post Racial President – In A Pig’s Eye

by Richard H. Frank

The mainstream media proclaimed that the election of Barack Obama to be President of the United States in 2008 ushered in a new era of post-racial politics in America.  Eighteen months into his presidency, we have witnessed our President accusing the Boston police of “acting stupidly” relative to the arrest of Professor Gates before having reviewed any facts associated with the incident.

This incident was followed closely by the Acorn scandal for voter fraud and alleged financing of housing for illegal purposes.  That investigation has been mysteriously abandoned with no explanation from the Justice Department.

Then we have the charge of “voter intimidation” by the “New Black Panthers” in the 2008 Philadelphia, PA election.  The default judgment against the defendant again was mysteriously dropped.

Now we learn of the alleged Justice Department policy not to pursue civil rights cases involving black crimes against whites.

Next, we learn Eric Holder is threatening to bring a second law suit against Arizona based on discrimination from racial profiling resulting from implementation of the law. Allegations of this type might be brought against any law and is ripe for fraud.

The Obama Administration, short of legislating reparations as such, for past crimes against minorities is pursuing the same result through redistribution of wealth which is the underlying agenda for all their proposed legislation.

The modus operandi for Obama is to divide and conquer.  First he has attacked the “haves” in the form of taxes to be redistributed to the “have nots” through increased entitlements (i.e., health care reform)  Next, he has attempted to set Hispanics against Whites by asserting that enforcement of immigration law by the states is racist.

His assertion that he only wishes to level the playing field  between the races lacks legitimacy as his policies have only served to destroy the free enterprise system, discourage job creation and ultimately bring more misery to all races in the middle class of America.  This, coupled with the moratorium on oil production in the Gulf of Mexico, will increase the burden on every economic sector in the  Country.

Chaos, mistrust between the races and vilifying business and the financial industry serves his agenda to pit people against people, race against race and government against free enterprise.  According to Obama  and the Democratic-controlled Congress, the answer to all the above  crises, real or fabricated, is more government intervention, oversight and control.

By his own admission Obama says our Constitution is fundamentally flawed and that civil rights’ law failed to properly address  redistribution in solving civil rights problems.  His policies are anything but “post racial” and his actions covertly inflame racial tensions largely eliminated over the past 40 years.  Post racial – No!  I expect his motives are to use racism as the means to achieve his agenda and are tearing this Country apart.
