Obama Lies and Unconstitutional Acts to Become the Legacy of his Presidency

by Jayne D. Frank

For some Americans, President Obama’s approval ratings remain high and that is stunning! But take into consideration who this small minority is who approves of him. They are students in school, too preoccupied with trying to get ahead and enjoying their young lives that they don’t pay attention. These are people who benefit from one of the largest Federal welfare giveaways in this century-those people collecting food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability and free Medicaid health services. This segment of America is so dependent on their status quo that they won’t open their eyes to see what this man is doing to our Country because they “can’t” lose the money they are given.

Lies from the White House about Obamacare permeated 2013 and will explode in 2014, because Obama has no other choice. Obamacare is a failure and a disaster. Already with this health care law, we know what is not true:

1) President Obama says “If you like your plan you can keep it.” This Administration knew just 2 months after the bill was passed when Regulations were written, that some 10 million people were targeted to lose their health care plans because the plans did not cover services that people did not need. Contraceptives, maternity care and abortive services were certainly not desired by single men in this country. High deductibles and co-pays were not in most plans because middle class Americans just don’t have that kind of money. Many Americans also just chose NOT to carry insurance and as people in a supposedly free country that was their right. So, thus far, 5.9 million Americans have been told they have lost their plans.

2) Another lie: “If you like your doctor, you can keep him!” We learned after October that many plans offered by the healthcare exchanges will NOT include your current doctor or hospital in their network plans. If you have a serious chronic disease and have been receiving great care by your doctor or hospital, you will once again be faced with starting over and finding someone to treat you with the same care and medications. Many cancer patients whose only hope is to go to Sloan-Kettering, MD Anderson or other major hospitals for treatment and a possible cure, will be shut out of access to those hospitals.

3) We are finding out that many plans in the Government health care exchanges are not offering the kinds of medicines that have treated your illnesses with success. If you have struggled to get your asthma under control and have found “management” of the disease by some of the more expensive medications such as Advair, these medications will undoubtedly be replaced by less-effective cheaper medications. Women who count on expensive osteoporosis medications to stop or prevent the disease will find that those too will found to be too expensive. Cancer medications are already being talked about to be reduced under these plans.

4) We have heard that the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) which is the governing body that will decide what treatments you get as a patient, will consist of non-elected, mostly non medical people who will not be accountable to anyone for their decisions. It is no accident that the members of IPAB are not and will not be chosen until this law is well underway and is unchangeable. The example given above for decisions about cancer treatment is more than enough for a reasonable person to know what is coming. A better example would be treatments for prostate cancer in men being severely rationed. Statistics indicate that 30% of men over age 50 and 80% of men over age 70 will be diagnosed with the disease. PSA, coupled with other tests, are the only current early indicators of prostate cancer. Treatments include radical surgery, radiation, hormone therapy and “watchful waiting.” The documented most effective cures are the first two and are costly treatments for the disease. IPAB’s mission to reduce costs will surely include rationing of treatments for any male over age 65. This action could become an unnecessary death sentence for those males with the disease. This cost-reduction mission of IPAB is certainly applicable to all other diseases where there are multiple treatments available such as breast cancer. Proponents of this law will always say that IPAB cannot “ration,” but there is no other way to achieve cost savings than to limit tests and procedures that are the most expensive for early diagnosis.

5) Obama and his minions have continued to lie that Obamacare will not affect seniors. Seniors have already been told that their doctors no longer will accept Medicare Advantage, and seniors will be the #1 target for this new IPAB group as they selectively decide, based on your age, whether you qualify for expensive medical treatment. Many seniors have also been told by their doctors that their doctors are not going to practice anymore or that they will no longer accept Medicare patients. Throwing every senior into Medicaid isn’t the answer either as most doctors in high density senior areas of the country have already stopped accepting Medicaid patients.

6) The lie continues about greater access for all Americans to medical care. Taking into consideration the number of doctors that are dropping out of private practice and the millions of new enrollees to the Government health care system that this law envisions, there is no way you will be able to see your doctor or receive a medical procedure without waiting many weeks or months.

7) In a stagnant economy with no meaningful jobs on the horizon, the worst lie told by Obama is that Government-run health care will be cheaper, “saving families $2500 per year!” Over the past 2 months we have heard the horror stories of middle class people who have gone on the exchanges to find plans only to find out that their premiums can be increased sometimes by triple their current cost, but if they pick a lower cost plan, their deductibles and co-pays are exorbitant and UNAFFORDABLE. Add to this fact that the payment for the website alone has gone from $634 billion to $677 billion and consider the millions of Americans who either are getting substantial unqualified subsidies or who have been shifted from a “payor” to a Medicaid recipient. There is no way this Government-run system will be cheaper and will save taxpayers money.

If this President cared about this Country at all, he would admit the lies he tells and at least try to get Obamacare changed in the parts where it has been found to be failing. Instead, he illegally waives his hand and mandates that certain groups be exempted from the law, makes regulations that extend much of the more onerous portions until they figure it out, or he just plain “deems” certain sections of the law unnecessary or no longer in effect.

Americans, this is OUR country, not Barack Obama’s! We are going to find that 2014 and 2015 may become the worst years of our lives because many millions of people with corporate-sponsored plans will lose their coverage and many of the mandates in the law have yet to become effective. We can do better. America had the best health care system in the world, and instead of fixing the small areas that needed to be fixed such as the uninsured or the rising cost of healthcare, Obama just blew up our health care, for his own agenda. I firmly believe we haven’t done anything about Barack Obama’s illegal actions in the Congress because of the “racist” charges to anyone who disagrees with the Obama administration. We have one more chance to right the wrongs that we allowed to happen. That is the 2014 mid-term elections. If we do not put responsible people in the Senate and keep the House of Representatives, we will deserve what we get! Only with control of these two houses can responsible Republican members of Congress take actions to repeal and replace this disastrous law.

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.

Warning – Obama’s Blueprint to Destroy America!

by Richard H. Frank

If ever there was any doubt in the mind of American voters about Barack Obama’s ideology, his speech this past weekend where he asserted “successful businessmen” (the rich in America) didn’t make it on their own, but achieved success because of Government, has eliminated that doubt.  Either he is completely ignorant of the workings of the free enterprise system or is the Marxist we have always suspected him to be.

Government produces nothing.  Just where does he think the money to create the infrastructure he credits to Government came from?  The financing for that infrastructure came directly from the citizens of this Country in the form of local, state and federal taxing of the “successful” individuals that had the foresight and initiative to create a good or service that resulted in profit and thus taxes that flowed to Government to build the nation’s infrastructure.

The debate is not which came first – “the chicken or the egg,” – it cannot be disputed in a free market capitalist economy.  Success of the individual produced the fuel that drives our economy and allows Government to exist.

In the world of Barack Obama, the Government is all-powerful and “We the People” are the serfs whose only purpose is to serve the Government.

The only tool at Obama’s disposal to achieve this “Marxist” vision is to trample the Constitution and make Congress and individual states impotent through regulation and Executive Fiat.  The first three and one-half years of his Presidency have demonstrated just how far he has moved this Country toward a tyrannical State reminiscent of the Soviet Union.

Four more years under Barack Obama will move this nation to a position of being second class in the world from that of the exceptional Country on earth whose values and principles others aspire to emulate.

Despite all of his rhetoric during the 2008 Presidential Campaign in which he promised to be the President for all Americans, he has in fact practiced decisive tactics that divide the Country into classes pitted against one another by  racial and economic conditions.  Race relations in  America have been set back by 50 years as a result of his quest for reparations for situations experienced from the nation’s founding through World War II.

Fairness, to Barack Obama, means taking from the successful and redistribution to others thus eliminating the initiative from people to take responsibility for their own lives to become totally dependent upon a handout from Big Brother.

Should he be re-elected in 2012 and his ideology takes root in America, where will the wealth come from to sustain the nation?  He will have killed the golden goose in the name of “fairness.”

The answer is simple.  Government will own everything.  The nation’s resources, business and private property will become a thing of the past.
“We the People” will no longer be the sovereigns over Government but be the slaves to that Government instead.

This great nation built over 236 years can be brought down in less than one decade under the Marxist ideology possessed by Barack Obama.

 

The Real Truth about Obama’s “Truth Team”

by Jayne Frank

On a daily basis, the Obama campaign team emails all the millennials, blacks, Latinos and other “groups” that supported him in 2008 to deluge them with lies about Obama’s record and why he should be given another chance.  It would be funny if it were not so sad.

The most flagrant and dishonest email I have ever seen is the one yesterday that there are 5 truths that Obama wants people to “put on their refrigerator” and pass along to everyone they meet.   The Obama groupies are encouraged to spread Obama’s five truths as follows.  The real truth about each one of these points is highlighted in red thereafter.

1)  Romney is the most radically anti-women candidate in a generation having supported the ban on Planned Parenthood and supported a ban on some abortion procedures.

Truth:  Unlike the Democratic talking heads, Romney has never demeaned womanhood, either in the workplace or in his capacity as Governor.  He treats all women as equals as not “victims” which flies in the face of everything the DNC and the Democratic party stands for.  The Democrats must, in order to be re-elected, portray women in America as victims unable to get fair pay for their work (unless a law demands it), and as an entitled group that must be given contraceptives and abortive services for free as they wish.  They also now have demeaned stay-at-home moms as not being productive in society.  This from a man who stated in his past that he would support Muslims whose entire life is devoted to making women subservient and second-class people.  This from a man who, through his own economic policies, has made women one of the largest unemployed groups in  America and has  put back decades the ability for women to work hard and progress in the private-sector marketplace.  

Knowing that the President of the United States represents all women of the U.S., not just the underprivileged, Romney supports NO FEDERAL FUNDING sent to Planned Parenthood.  We can’t afford it and Planned Parenthood can exist on private donations alone.

2)  Romney will repeal Obamacare.

You bet he will!  And he will have Congress replace it with a health care reform that will protect people with pre-existing conditions and make sure that doctors in America have the ability to treat their patients and not have to ration care for the less productive portions of our population (according to Obama), our precious seniors.  America is broke, has almost a $17 trillion deficit, and the Congressional Budget Office has already said that Obamacare will cost over $1.3 trillion more than the projected $1 trillion that was projected in the Legislation.  Quite truthfully, Obamacare is socialized medicine and will kill the quality of care for all Americans.

3)   Romney doesn’t have what it takes to be Commander-in-Chief because he shifts positions on foreign policy!

Are you serious?  This from a man who had zero experience to be qualified for this high office other than organizing community groups to protest inequality and to keep the entitlement system in place.   Due to his bowing to the entire world, continually apologizing for America, we are the laughing-stock of countries, especially in the middle east, who continually “test” Obama’s resolve.  I admit that Obama is steady in his foreign policy – he has none other than portraying America as a weak country not willing to stand up for its Allies or picking and choosing which human rights issues are worth taking a stand on.

4)  Romney’s economic plans would take more money from the middle class….

I won’t even finish this sentence because of the disgust this writer has for this repeated lie.  47% of Americans don’t pay taxes, and the top 1% of taxpayers pay almost 50% of the taxes in this Country.  There is nothing more to be said.  This President has made his 1st priority in his Presidency demeaning private sector success (unless it is from one of his wealthy donors such as a Bill Gates, Steve Jobs or Warren Buffet).  His own admitted policy as stated in his campaign was to “redistribute wealth.”  So why young people in this country would not see that there will be no opportunities under this Administration to work in the private sector and make a success of themselves financially, is beyond me.  Is sitting back and “taking” from our Government more satisfying than working hard and putting your hard-earned money in your pocket more satisfying?  I think not.

5)  Romney would end Medicare as we know it

Obama and the Democrats are once again resorting to the only tactics they know – trying to scare seniors, knowing that they are a very crucial voting block for the Presidential election.  The truth is that Medicare is on a downward spiral.  With millions of new baby boomers hitting the Medicare program each year, and with fewer and fewer people in the workforce able to pay into the Medicare system, Medicare WILL end as we know it with the help of Obama.   With a country in this much debt, the Medicare program must be overhauled so that our children and grandchildren have a program that will be there to supplement their medical care as well.  The perception is that there are seniors just waiting until they can get Medicare so they can then leech off the system for the rest of their lives.  In truth, seniors hate being forced into a Federally mandated medical health system and it is certainly true that the majority of us cannot survive off this benefits alone without spending a great percentage of our fixed income supplementing this Federal program.  Seniors are not stupid and we will overwhelming vote for a President, and a Congressional team, that is supportive of keeping benefits intact for seniors already getting Medicare, but who will lead and make the hard choices necessary to save Medicare for our kids and grandkids.

One of the most abysmal omissions in this emails is the effect that Obamacare will have on seniors’ healthcare.  You are starting to see rationing and decisions made by non-medical care boards within the Government on what care is appropriate and which procedures will be turned down, spiraling costs for our Medicare contributions that seniors are already making, and huge 30% increases for supplemental insurance that seniors must carry.   None of us, under Obamacare, are going to be allowed to see specialists if the “Board” thinks it is not warranted, and our own private doctors are being put in the position of either declining to see us anymore because of lack of payment under Medicare or because of the onerous regulations being placed on them under Obamacare.  Remember, under Obamacare, it is prohibited for you to pay for any procedure or doctor if you have the money to do so!  You bet Mitt Romney or any other Republican being elected to office will repeal this onerous legislation passed without a majority of Congress or the American people, and in the dark of night.

I know that some young people in this country see the President of our Country as a rock star – someone who feels their pain and can technologically keep up with them.  But I feel that is a huge minority, and that young people want the same prospects for their lives as I and my parents and grandparents had.  The prospect that if we worked hard,  persevered, and were good citizens and dedicated to our families, that the quality of life would be good for them and that life would be rewarding.  They are not willing to buy this “Bill of Goods” that the Obama administration is trying to sell, and that they will help elect a President in 2012 that is willing and able to put America back on the path to prosperity and freedom that I so enjoyed in my lifetime.

When will the GOP learn?

Jayne D. Frank

After the 2008 Presidential Election, I did extensive research on the overwhelming number of independent young voters who had decided the 2008 Presidential Election in favor of Barack Obama.  That result hit me in the gut as I could not believe that voters would have voted for this most radical candidate with an Alinsky-inspired, Marxist-agenda for America; I needed to find out why.   The reasons and rationale are set forth in previous young voter articles on this blog,  but they can be summarized in a few lines:  1) The Generation Y grew up in peace time in America, mostly of 60s “free spirit” parents, and the Country was flourishing under a free enterprise system which basically asked nothing of this generation; they ended up asking “What is my purpose in life?”  2) Then the rock star Barack Obama appeared out of nowhere to give them their purpose – environmental and social justice.

Barack Obama’s path to victory had been long-planned and surreptitiously laid out by the likes of Alinsky and George Soros-funded Progressive and socialist groups such as Latino Justice, Young Voter Alliance, Rock the Vote, Assn. of Community Organizations for Reform Now, Campaign for  America’s Future, Campus Progressives, Center for Community Change and the Institute for America’s Future, to name a few.  These organizations then and now are funding entertainment and social media events, blogs, voter registration drives and campus activism, all to assure that the “One” will be re-elected in 2012.  One need only look at history to remember how Hitler rallied his Young Corp to walk on foot to attend all his rallies and show support for him.

For the two years that followed the election, I tried in my own town and Conservative patriot organizations to have people recognize this phenomenon and to help me reach out to young voters 18-29 so that this debacle did not happen again in the 2012 election.  I was able to obtain a major speaker from Young America’s Foundation and Human Events, Jason Mattera, to come and speak to the young voters in our Northwest Michigan area, which was no small feat, but I could not rally the support of the GOP and Conservative groups in my area to get behind these efforts.  Now I see that my local GOP women’s group, more than 2 years after the fact, is now interested in setting up a Young Republican’s Group.  This effort is very late, but commendable, and unless the focus is to educate those young minds in why the Progressive socialist path they are attracted to is “bad for America and their futures,” the GOP will remain a group mainly of middle-aged and senior members such as myself, unable to expand or reach out and be an effective entity for the 2012 elections and beyond.

This naivety also extends to the GOP Presidential candidates themselves.  Although I feel strongly that he can’t possibly win against Barack Obama, Ron Paul is the only candidate that attracts hoards of young people at his rallies to support him.  Much of this has to do with his anti-Big Government, Anti-War and most especially anti-authority vision that inspires the young people.  Unless the GOP candidates get off their social conservative bandwagon and starting hitting the young voters in this country with jobs numbers, job prospects, real consequences of a weakened foreign policy and talk about their futures in a socialist country, no GOP candidate will win.

I intend to keep my interest in reaching out to young voters alive because they are the future of this Country.  If we as seniors of this Country don’t do our very best before we leave this earth, to educate our young people in the history of this Country and why ignoring such history and the lessons we have learned from it will kill the America we love, then WE should be asking the question “What was our purpose in life?”

Obama’s Anti-Life Policies and Generation Y’s Admiration

by Jayne D. Frank

Recently after debates and speeches from the GOP candidates focusing on President Obama’s efforts to impose his pro-abortion policies on churches and religious-based organizations, I saw many tweets and other comments from younger voters saying “What’s this all about?” or “He did not.”  What they were referring to are the candidates’ reminders that then Senator Barack Obama voted for “Infanticide” – the Bill which would not sustain life for babies born alive after an abortion attempt.  So these young voters need to be reminded of this man’s lack of a morality by reading the article below:

AUGUST 22, 2008 7:30 A.M.

Why Obama Really Voted For Infanticide
More important to protect abortion doctors than “that fetus, or child — however way you want to describe it.”By Andrew C. McCarthy

‘ There wasn’t any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren’t cooperating. They wouldn’t die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”

No, Senator. They wouldn’t go along with the program. They wouldn’t just come out limp and dead.

They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among “the least of my brothers.” But of course, an abortion extremist can’t very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters — millions of them — is somehow not among America’s greatest moral failings.

No. In Obama’s hardball, hard-Left world, these least become “that fetus, or child — however you want to describe it.”

Most of us, of course, opt for “child,” particularly when the “it” is born and living and breathing and in need of our help. Particularly when the “it” is clinging not to guns or religion but to life.

But not Barack Obama. As an Illinois state senator, he voted to permit infanticide. And now, running for president, he banks on media adulation to insulate him from his past.

The record, however, doesn’t lie.

Infanticide is a bracing word. But in this context, it’s the only word that fits. Obama heard the testimony of a nurse, Jill Stanek. She recounted how she’d spent 45 minutes holding a living baby left to die.

The child had lacked the good grace to expire as planned in an induced-labor abortion — one in which an abortionist artificially induces labor with the expectation that the underdeveloped “fetus, or child — however you want to describe it” will not survive the delivery.

Stanek encountered another nurse carrying the child to a “soiled utility room” where it would be left to die. It wasn’t that unusual. The induced-labor method was used for late-term abortions. Many of the babies were strong enough to survive the delivery. At least for a time.

So something had to be done with them. They couldn’t be left out in the open, struggling in the presence of fellow human beings. After all, those fellow human beings — health-care providers — would then be forced to confront the inconvenient question of why they were standing idly by. That would hold a mirror up to the whole grisly business.

Better the utility room. Alone, out of sight and out of mind. Next case.

Stanek’s account enraged the public and shamed into silence most of the country’s staunchest pro-abortion activists. Most, not all. Not Barack Obama.

My friend Hadley Arkes ingeniously argued that legislatures, including Congress, should take up “Born Alive” legislation: laws making explicit what decency already made undeniable: that from the moment of birth — from the moment one is expelled or extracted alive from the birth canal — a human being is entitled to all the protections the law accords to living persons.

Such laws were enacted by overwhelming margins. In the United States Congress, even such pro-abortion activists as Sen. Barbara Boxer went along.

But not Barack Obama. In the Illinois senate, he opposed Born-Alive tooth and nail.

The shocking extremism of that position — giving infanticide the nod over compassion and life — is profoundly embarrassing to him now. So he has lied about what he did. He has offered various conflicting explanations, ranging from the assertion that he didn’t oppose the anti-infanticide legislation (he did), to the assertion that he opposed it because it didn’t contain a superfluous clause reaffirming abortion rights (it did), to the assertion that it was unnecessary because Illinois law already protected the children of botched abortions (it didn’t — and even if it arguably did, why oppose a clarification?).

What Obama hasn’t offered, however, is the rationalization he vigorously posited during the 2002 Illinois senate debate.’

The images described by these nurses should have remained in the minds of every American, but young people seemed to have forgotten.   They also say that the notion that there are “death panels” in Obamacare is a farce.  However, what is not contested, is the language in Obamacare that people will get health care under Medicare, based on the “cost justification” which takes into consideration a person’s age and condition to determine if they will receive the needed procedures to save their life.  Fetus or Elderly – you are not safe in Obama’s vision of the perfect America, because you are not productive and will not be able to participate in paying “your fair share.”

As incredulous as it is, young voters, as well as his supportive African-American base, seem to be frozen in an adulation for this man, often looking at him as a Rock Star.   In his new singing debut, you actually saw people shivering as he sang to his audience.

I know that Generation Y and the blacks in America do not keep on top of what is happening in this country to a large extent, and that is a shame, for November, 2012 will once again ask Americans:  Do you want a President that loves his country, governs and protects all Americans (both unborn and elderly), will get out of the way of private enterprise so that jobs will be created, will uphold  his oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and most of all, will not lie to the American people every time he stands before his teleprompters and cameras?  The choice is obvious – Obama must be a one-term President.

The “Real” Reason Not to Re-Elect Barack Obama!

by Richard H. Frank and Jayne D. Frank

News reports state that President Obama is about to announce his candidacy to run for re-election in the 2012 national Presidential elections.  The announcement is purported to be coming to the electorate in the form of a video that will highlight the accomplishments of his Administration over the past two years.

Somehow the Obama spin doctors will attempt to convince Americans that the politics of “hope and change,” coupled with the greatest level of Government transparency in history, has saved this nation from certain disaster.  The Obama “war chest” (campaign funding) is reportedly approaching $1 billion that will be spent inundating the public with a nonstop barrage of political ads proclaiming his Administration’s accomplishments.  A taped video will have a number of advantages for him:  1) He can immediately place this on Facebook and other social media sites and seduce the young uninformed voters that foolishly voted for him in large numbers in 2008 predicated on undefined “Hope and Change”, 2) It will enable his “handlers” to get his body language right on tape  and ensure that any lies are edited out, and 3) It will once again make sure he is only speaking off his teleprompters to avoid any extemporaneous answers to hard questions.  You can expect the following myths to be the cornerstone of President Obama’s Presidential Re-election campaign:

  • The Affordable Health Care Law.  Arguably “Unconstitutional” in that it forces every American to buy insurance or face a fine under this law.
  • Stimulus spending that has saved or created up to 3 million American jobs
  • Nationalization of GM and Chrysler in order to preserve the American auto industry
  • TARP spending that saved the American financial system from the brink of disaster
  • His declaration that 85% of the Nation’s energy needs will be provided by green technology in 2035

Each of these programs has been presented as being the most transparent in our nation’s history.  Transparency is a most interesting term for use by a politician.  The American Heritage Dictionary uses some of the following definitions to describe how the term might be applied:  1) The quality or state of being transparent; guileless, candid, 2) Guileless refers to being free from treachery, cunning, deceit or trickery, 3) Candid means straightforward, free from prejudice and impartial.

Notice none of the above definitions is so crass so as to use the term “liar,” and therefore allows politicians to walk the very narrow line between the “truth and nothing but the truth” and outright “lying.”

A closer look at the Obama Administration’s signature accomplishments in view of transparency shows the following statements do not meet the definition for transparency:

The Affordable Health Care Law does not or will not achieve the President’s proclamations as follows:

  • If you like your plan you can keep it
  • The average family will save $2500/yr
  • The plan will insure 30 million currently uninsured
  • Services will not be rationed and  fraud and waste will be eliminated
  • The plan is fully paid for and will not add to the deficit

Stimulus spending has saved or created up to 3 million jobs.

  • If 3 million jobs were saved or created and we spent $816 billion in stimulus funding, each job cost the American taxpayer $272,000.
  • There were no shovel-ready projects according to a recent admission by Barack Obama.
  • Private sector jobs were not created by stimulus spending but Government-sector jobs increased by 1 million which must be paid by private sector taxation which experienced no growth and contracted by more than six million over the past two years.

The American automotive industry has been saved by Obama’s forced bankruptcy and redistribution of assets between Government, the unions and special interests.

  • GM has repaid all the Government loans ahead of schedule and is a monumental success.  Congressional oversight reports it estimates the taxpayer will be out $25 billion and when sweetheart tax exemptions are included we may expect the total cost to taxpayers to be  $84 billion dollars.  If this equals success for the Obama Administration, I would hate to know what constitutes failure.

TARP spending saved the nation’s financial system from certain disaster.

  • Major banks were bailed out by taxpayers with the promise that troubled assets would be addressed through refinancing debt or mortgage modifications.
  • The real estate market has collapsed and banks are doing nothing to support individual  home loan modification programs as touted by the Obama Administration.
  • Thirteen percent of residences are vacant or abandoned across the nation with values forecast to plunge an additional 25% over the coming year, bringing down the average home value and destroying equity for most of the remaining occupied homes for decades to come.
  • Currently more than six million homes are either in or facing foreclosures.
  • Continued deterioration in the real estate market caused by Government over-manipulation may be the precurser to a double-dip recession.

Green technology to account for 85% of the Nation’s energy needs by 2035 is unrealistic and unachievable since there is no known technology other than nuclear power with the capacity to replace fossil fuels.  Obama and his Administration has been anti-development of fossil fuels in the United States through regulations, and moratoriums against exploration in Anwar as well as offshore on the Continental Shelf.   He has continually circumvented the will of the Congress and the Will of the People with the creation of more than 35 Czars charged with creation and implementation of onerous regulations that stifle energy independence and ultimately economic growth for the country.

The past two years under the Obama Administration has presented the potential opponents with a plethora of video sound bites with which to mount a effective campaign against his re-election.  President Obama’s and the Democratic Party’s own words create the best case against their re-election in 2012.  All the soaring rhetoric and empty promises of hope and change will not erase the reality of his record and pain being felt across this country.

Nonetheless, there will remain a segment of the electorate that will continue to drink the Koolaid of mutual destruction of the nation and vote for Barack Obama.

Unfortunately, these uninformed individuals have no knowledge or understanding of the values and principles upon which this great country was built.

The greatest gift Obama could give his Party and the nation would be to follow the good sense shown by Lyndon Johnson and change his upcoming announcement to say that “he would not seek, nor would he accept, the nomination of his Party for President of the United States,” for a second term.

Then again, we can dream, can’t we?
