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.

 

 

J. Christopher Stevens’ Murder – “Just a Bump in the Road!”

By Richard H. Frank

Once again, Barack Obama has shown his true colors proclaiming on “60 Minutes” that the “criminal” assault on the Libyan Consulate that resulted in the assassination of Ambassador Stevens was just a “bump in the road” along the path to achieving democracy in the Middle East.  A President that ignores the obvious fact that the attack was a coordinated terrorist assault upon the United States on the anniversary of 9/11 is either living in some alternative universe or is just plain perpetrating a lie in order to shift responsibility for his lack of leadership and failed policies to some obscure video that allegedly insults the Prophet Mohammed.

Then on Tuesday September 25, the President addressed the UN General Assembly and used the biography of Ambassador Stevens as the introduction to his remarks leading to placing the blame for Mid-East violence against our interests on the video, asserting our Government had nothing to do with the production.

Barack Obama, the Narcissist-in-Chief, ignores his responsibility to meet with leaders of the world but takes time to appear on The View where he proclaimed his presence to be “eye candy” for the show.  Does this man have any respect for the dignity of the Office he holds?  I think it is time we judge Barack Obama not by his words alone, but by his actions, or lack of action.

Three and one-half years after assuming the Office, we are witnessing Obama’s “fundamental change” in America.  Chronic unemployment, record foreclosures, 8.2% drop in household income and a loss of 40% in the net worth of the average American.

Yet Obama continues to champion deficit spending and trillion-dollar increases in the National Debt in the name of “fairness” to correct a stagnant economy for which he assumes no responsibility.

As to his dismal record, he and  his supporters have only one response.  That response is to blame George W. Bush.  Somehow, I cannot find George W. Bush on the ballot anywhere in America and think it is time for the Democrats to run on their own record.

Given the reality of domestic and foreign policy today under Barack Obama, it is unbelievable that he would lead Mitt Romney in any poll concerning the 2012 Presidential election.

Should you believe the murders of J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans are “just a bump in the road” resulting from Obama’s foreign policy, I hope we never hit a pothole along that road.  That “pothole” is coming into focus in the form of Iran’s pursuit of a nuclear weapon and having to take sides with Israel to prevent their ultimate achievement of that goal.  What will Obama do when Israel takes the initiative to protect their people from a country that has sworn to wipe them off the face of the earth.  I’m sure he will find a way to spin the situation and place the blame directly at the feet once again of George W. Bush.

The time has come to fire Obama and return this Country to the path of assuring respect for the principles and values that have made America the greatest Country in the history of the World.

Seniors and Millenials Voting for Obama – Don’t You Get It, or Are You Just Stupid!

by Jayne D. Frank

Apparently everyone in this country except you seniors and millenials voting for Obama’s re-election recognize the Democrat lies and distortions of this year’s election, and perhaps the only thing that will make you wake up is the truth (unless you can’t handle the truth).

  • Barack Obama has NOT protected Medicare like AARP has lied to you about.  Medicare Advantage is going to be terminated which is the system that many seniors have.  The reason?  Obamacare cuts what AARP and many other companies providing Medicare Advantage get from the Government.  The result will be that you are either thrown out of the current plan you are in so that you can pay more for a Medigap policy, OR you will be thrown into a pool of people covered by “Big Brother.””  Is this what you worked so hard for all these years – to be lied to be your Government and your insurer?  AARP is only in this fight because if you use your head instead of your emotions, you will see that they stand to lose a lot of money from your current participation in their plan.  Obama raided Medicare at the tune of $716 billion to put that money into Obamacare so that the people he wants covered, get covered.  Believe me, that’s not seniors because in his own words (to paraphrase) seniors and babies are not productive to society!  That money taken from Medicare will result in bureaucrats telling you what care you MAY receive and paying your doctor less so that eventually he can’t care for you.  Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are the ONLY ones which will allow you to keep the Medicare that you have in place now but will change it for your children and grandchildren so that they have Medicare when they get older.  Obamacare will cost another $1.6 trillion more than the trillions that were originally anticipated to cover the amount of Americans (and illegal immigrants) who Obama promised to cover.  Are you really so selfish that you won’t use rational thinking and protect future generations?  Only repeal and replacement of Obamacare will preserve the current coverage of seniors already in the system. Seniors are NOT getting their familiar annual physicals free — this is a lie (see my Annual Physical articles).
  • Barack Obama’s agenda is to have the Government CONTROL the internet, including YouTube videos and social media content.  Recent legislation for this failed in the House of Representatives, but Obama is going to circumvent Congress and the rights of Americans by issuing an Executive Order taking away your internet privacy rights.  His ultimate goal is for State control of all media and he currently has this Executive Order being finalized using the recent idiotic Innocence of Muslims trailer.  Millenials, your future is just about set in stone.  You will not be able put videos online that you want; you will not be able to look at whatever YouTube videos interest you, and you will be watched by the Government for anything on social media that does not agree with the positions espoused by the Democrats.  Say Goodbye to the status quo.
  • The Obama Administration wants to control what Americans see on television and hear on the radio, often proposing that the Fairness Doctrine be imposed.  This would mean that the Government alone would have the right to take off the air whatever they felt did not agree with their draconian positions and could impose mandated television programs for Americans.  It is the case in many third-world countries and is not very far away.  Only our Republican House and the calls of furious Americans have stopped legislation in Congress to impose this.
  • Teenagers and Millenials – do you think your phone will be exempt from the above Government mandates in the future  – it certainly will not and the Government will move in to monitor who is called and the conversation of your call.
  • Both seniors and millenials are already the victims of Obama’s policies not to protect and promote our natural resources of oil and coal in this Country.  This Administration would rather see themselves as globalists giving offshore contracts and business to other countries and shutting down any possibility of our own energy independence.  Can you afford to keep chosing whether to eat or put gas in your car?  Remember Obama’s administration said that gas “should” go up to $10/gallon in order to further their agenda. This is the decision you will continue to be faced with if you re-elect Barack Obama.
  • Do you want Government telling you what kind of car you must drive, what kind of house you will be able to afford or whether you can only get a good job if you belong to a union?  That is where we find ourselves in 2012 and President Obama’s redistribution agenda will make sure that your opportunities are stopped or limited until the poorest in our Country are raised to “your standard of living” without their having  had to work for it.
  • Do you like meeting your friends for beer and a pizza, taking your children to McDonald’s for a Happy Meal or gathering around the TV for a sports event with all the makings for a great night – popcorn, chili, hamburgers, dip, cheeses, etc.  Think about the good times you have had with your friends because once the Obama Administration’s “food agenda” is in full force you will not be able to eat what you want.  Mrs. Obama has already interfered with your loss of freedom by depriving families of the choice of what their children will eat at school, taking sugar out of products or limiting the amount you can buy.  All this under the guise of “knowing what is good for your family.”

I personally will vote to retain my freedom as protected and assured by my American Constitution and Declaration of Independence and I will vote to allow Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to get us back on an “American Way of Life.”  Should this fail,  I can only pray for the America I love and know and this will be just the beginning of what Barack Obama has described as “his flexibility in his second term (to get done what he wants).” He ignores the rule of law, ignores the Constitution and won’t work with our Legislative Branch of Government (both Democrats and Republicans).

I implore seniors, new voters, Millenials and all previous supporters of Barack Obama to look beyond themselves and their needs.  This an America of more than 300 million people, 69 million of whom are senior citizens (your parents and grandparents) and those just trying to enter the workforce and whose parents have described the “American Dream” to them.  This is THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION in my lifetime, and I have been through many decades of Presidential elections.  Do the right thing and pull the lever for America’s future on November 6.

Even Conservative Women Have Hearts!

by Jayne D. Frank

Any mother who has cradled her son because he came home crying after not making the school football team, or who has consoled her dejected husband after his life-long career has been yanked out from under him, saw what I saw last night before Barack Obama’s acceptance at the DNC.  It was Michelle Obama’s long hug and comforting words to her husband before his speech.  They were not smiling, it was not a celebratory hug and her words to him were not ones to do anything but comfort him.  Her eyes were the most telling – ones that said “Do the best you can…”  Both Michelle and Barack had previously received the devastating August jobs and unemployment figures and both also knew before the speech that 70% of Americans say that this Administration is going in the wrong direction.

I felt for the Obamas at that moment for many mothers and wives have been there before.  As the night continued and President Obama tried to find a way to justify his years of failure as President to improve the declining economic condition we Americans find ourselves in, you knew why Obama needed that hug.  There is no good news from his record as President and the only thing he could muster to say about the future is that we should “look off into the horizon.”

As a woman, I thought this scene was sad, but as a mother and wife, I know we must treat Barack Obama as we would do with ours sons or husbands in this situation.    We would tell our son that “perhaps you weren’t made for football but there are many other talents that you have,” or to our husbands who have lost their jobs “Maybe this is the time to try something new.”

So this is the time for American woman to know the truth and to take charge of their family’s economic future by saying Goodbye to Barack Obama and to give the Romney Team the mandate to 1) help create the environment where good high-paying jobs can be obtained by the unemployed, and to make sure 2) our sons and daughters have an environment where once they graduate from college or a trade school, that they will be able to get a job that they can be proud of.   It is time that women in America think with their heads and not with their hearts.

A Country Without a President

by Jayne D. Frank

Today as I was preparing to write about the disastrous Government actions  in the last couple of weeks that should make every American feel that we are a Country without a President, we received an email of a story by Wayne Allyn  Root which is set forth in its entirety below. I will let that article speak for itself but it does dovetail on the back of what this article is about.  Barack Obama, through his Justice Department not only is suing Arizona over S.B. 1070 which mirrors and enforces the Federal law concerning securing our borders, but part of that lawsuit says “We (the Government) reserve the right to do nothing”  Oh really?  All the Obama rhetoric the last few days about abiding by the law apparently does not include himself as President.

Also after a second moratorium on offshore drilling was struck down by the courts saying that the Government has not made the case that drilling is harmful, the Obama Administration still indicates it will pursue this moratorium by rewriting another document.  What crass arrogance of this man!  The oil companies and their oil rig suppliers cannot get back to work on their rigs until they know what move Obama has in store next for them, the result being the loss of thousands of jobs and millions of dollars.

Barack Obama lives and breathes to destroy our free enterprise system, to keep growing Government and entitlement programs, including an already out-of-control healthcare system, and to decimate the American spirit by continuing to pound on his mantra of redistributing the wealth.  The latest fiasco is Barack Obama’s recess appointment of Donald Berwick to head up the Medicare and Medicaid systems under the new health care bill.  Mr. Berwick is known for his love of the British healthcare system which is a total failure and he has said he wants  to ration care and redistribute our wealth.   Americans have been totally abandoned by this Marxist president and the complicit Congress as well.    Now the only avenues Americans have to try to stop the madness and take control of our Country are at the ballot box, getting our State Legislatures to protect states rights and filing class action suits against the Government for their unconstitutional actions. Barack Obama is purposefully deaf to our cries of outrage.

I will now let Mr. Root’s article speak for itself:

“WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Overwhelm the System

Barack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he’s doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos — thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate ( Columbia University , class of ’83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University . They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they’re alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival … and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

— Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn’t care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

— Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama’s biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama “spread the wealth around.”

— Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who’s asking for a 51st state? Who’s asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama’s plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

— Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America . But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

— Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions — including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America . The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

— Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you’ve got the perfect Marxist scheme — all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.”
