D.C. Elites in Fear of Trump!

by Richard H. Frank

The Washington establishment of both political parties tremble in abject fear that Donald J. Trump may be elected President of the United States.

Their paranoia is evident by what they say to bring him down and what is unsaid in support of his policies. How dare this crass outsider attempt to enter our hallowed halls of government and challenge the status quo? After all, he is not one of the elites dedicated to a career of public service. This fact is undeniable and Mr. Trump has opened the doors to the hallowed halls of government and has shined a spotlight on the rampant corruption houses therein.

His detractors argue that his language and rhetoric is not statesmanlike and that he lacks the temperament to be President. However that language is viewed by at least half of the Country as the truth and they call it “straight talk” no matter how it infuriates the Washington elites in both political parties.

The current Administration and their Congressional supporters are at a loss to respond to his list of their failures extending back to the 1960s. Recovery of the past 8 years as a glowing success, their domestic policies and regulations have smothered small business entrepreneurs and driven large corporations to seek opportunities abroad. Obamacare is a train wreck and destined to die of its own onerous provisions.

Likewise, the Obama/Clinton foreign policy is a disaster that may never be reconciled with military intervention in the Middle East.

Yet we hear the echoing refrain in the hallowed halls of Washington shouting “Osama Bin Laden is Dead and GM is alive!”So say the Hillaryites and their minions.

Trumps words may not be statesmanlike and are painful to the Washington elites but they are representative of what most Americans believe with regard to our massive Washington bureaucracy. Corruption reigns supreme and the rule of law taken backseat to political expediency. If you do not agree with my statement, consider the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the sham investigation conducted by the FBI and an Attorney General whose Justice Department is complicit in dismissing any criminal offenses committed by Hillary Clinton and her staff. Had anyone reading this blog done anything approaching the admitted offenses disregarded in this investigation I guarantee you that you would be behind bars and not running for the Office of President.

Every agency in government from Education to Energy is sweating bullets in fear that Hillary Clinton, the Agent of this status quo, may lose to Trump. Every bureaucrat and Congressman making a career of sucking off the teat of Big Government is in fear of receiving a pink slip should Trump be elected.

Thus, the truth about a corrupt Big Government has been exposed and therefore the elites must resort to the politics of personal destruction, a game which the Clintons are masters at playing.

Hillary states that Trump has paid no taxes in decades due to a business loss of some $900 million dollars associated with his investments in the Atlantic City casino business. She is careful to avoid saying he did anything illegal but infers that he is a fraud when using his business empire as an example of his economic prowess.

She attempts to depict Trump as unAmerican and against our military for having paid no taxes yet she has no evidence to support her accusations. How can anyone that loses that much money be left to administer the Federal Budget? This from a woman that has not created a single job in her lifetime. Such hypocrisy from someone that has been a part of Government that has lost billions of dollars during each year of this Administration and doubled the National Debt.

Hillary’s plan to fix the economy and create jobs is to rebuild our infrastructure, become energy independent through solar and emerging technologies while in the same breath advocates legislating the Coal Industry out of existence and providing free college tuition to families living at or below the poverty level.How can she pay for all these freebies? We all know how – by taxing the rich.

Trump’s solution to our economic malaise is simple. Stimulate growth through tax cuts and elimination of onerous regulations that are job killers. He advocates elimination of government waste and provisions of the Great Society and the war on poverty extending back to the 1960s that reward individuals for not working and contributing to our growth, programs that have cost Americans trillions of dollars and have done nothing but create a class of dependance in our Country.

Should by some miracle Donald Trump is elected President his major obstacle against implementing his agenda will not be the Democrats in Congress per se but the elites, the professional politicians of both parties that have a vested interest in maintaining the status quo. They see their vise grip on America slipping away as efforts to restore and honor the Constitution and return the government to the People once against are pursued.

The elites will raise straw men to create mistrust and fear mongering against change. Any move to honor the Second and Tenth Amendments and return power to the States will be met with fierce opposition. No more game playing with regard to upholding the law, immigration enforcement, defunding sanctuary cities and granting blanket asylum to unaccompanied minors entering our country illegally making them eligible to receive government benefits.

With every Federal Election,those running for office seem to forget that they work for us, We the People. Somehow Congress has switched from representing the electorate to representing special interests. Real change in 2016 means returning to a government of, by and for the People in order to restore this Nation’s greatness.

Hillary Clinton represents more of the same and maintaining the status quo for the ruling class.

Donald Trump represents Real Change. Change that Americans are looking for that may be our last chance to return to and save our Representative Republic. As Trump has said on his campaign appearances: “What do we have to lose?” The answer is we may lose everything America has always stood for! We owe more to our children and our grandchildren.

13 Hours – American Heroes Betrayed by our Government

by Richard H. Frank

Every American needs to see this motion picture which depicts the actual account of the brave men that were on the ground in Benghazi on that fateful night of September 11, 2012. As the film concluded the audience rose and silently left the theater. The preceding 2 hours carried the viewers on an emotional roller coaster. For me personally, I experienced feelings of pain, anger, disgust and shame for what six brave individuals endured while attempting to protect the lives of 25 CIA and State Department covert operators stationed at the Annex approximately a mile from the consulate which was ultimately overrun costing the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

The account of what happened is a straight forward explanation of the events in chronological order covering 13 hours from the initial call for help at the consulate to the mortar attack on the Annex that killed Doherty and Woods. No mention is made by name of President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta or General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

There is little doubt that had the security contractors located at the Annex been allowed to respond to the initial call for help from the two security personnel assigned to protect Chris Stevens, all four of the deceased would be alive today. Perhaps the numerous pleas for improved security from Ambassador Stevens might have finally been answered affirmatively as a result of the attack that night.

The Administration’s account of what happened is torn to shreds and each and every excuse for failing to dispatch assistance in a timely manner is shown as blatantly false. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and Chairman on the Joint Chief of Staff, General Dempsey, lied when they claimed they could not mount a rapid action response team in time to assist in repelling the attack “which was over in less than two hours.” The AFRICOM Commandar General Carter Ham claimed there was no rapid response assets available nor any C130 gunships to render assistance. Yet the State Department memo alerting the embassies to be vigilant at the anniversary of 9/11 was eminent and they should prepare for an attack was obviously not conveyed to the Pentagon or just ignored. The film makes it clear that a flyover by F16s based in Italy could also have cover the distance in about 20 minutes.

All of the above is SNAFU’s are typical of the Obama Administration which suffers from chronic paralysis from analysis. So much for our Government’s credibility.
Then there is our Commander in Chief who when advised of the attack told Panetta to take whatever action would be necessary and keep him posted, whereupon Obama undertook a campaign fundraising trip to bolster his re-election coffers.

As for our then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, we may never know what she did during these fateful 13 hours. But then again, as she arrogantly stated during her first public hearing on Benghazi “At this point, what difference does it make if it was a spontaneous attack or just a couple of guys out for a walk wanting to kill four Americans?”

The political coverup within the Obama Administration continues today 3-1/2 years after the attack and the investigation is thwarted by the democrats on the select committee at every turn. We likely will never learn the truth about this cover up for decades to come.

This is why I feel such anger, disgust and shame as an American. Angry and disgusted by those elected to protect our brave people in service to our country. Shamed by their contrived lies to the Country concerning what caused the attack and their pitiful excuse for failing to assist our people begging for help to save their lives.

I am ashamed of an Administration so obsessed with holding power in an upcoming election seven weeks away that remaining in power took precedence over immediately dispatching help to our people in Benghazi.

From my perspective Leon Panetta, General Dempsey, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama bear the personal responsibility for the death of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Further our Government showed a lack of character to be truthful to the American people about what actually occurred. And what of the 25 plus CIA and State Department covert operatives that to now have remain silent concerning the events of September 11, 2012? Is their silence due to some threat of reprisal from our corrupt Government officials or is it that their activities were unknown and illegal under our rule of law?

Maybe the Select House Committee on Benghazi will uncover the truth. We the People deserve nothing less!

Obama’s Revenge – A President in Panic!

by Richard H. Frank

Any American voter with a minimum of common sense must admit that Barack Obama has become a candidate in panic.  His actions in light of the Benghazi, Libya murders and  his photo-op following Hurricane Sandy are continued evidence of his narcissistic attitude about this Nation.  If it is not all about Obama, the Messiah, the mainstream media fails to report the truth in an effort to run out the clock until after the election on November 6.

An incumbent with no record to run on, who has governed against the will of The People and treated the individual states as serfdoms of the Federal Government under the reign of his Royal Majesty Barack Obama, has reverted to characterizing the election as the means to seek revenge.  Revenge upon who? Mitt Romney?

The truth is that Mitt Romney bears no responsibility for the economic situation and devastation piled upon Americans over the past four years by the policies imposed upon us by the Obama Administration.  Additionally,  Obama as Commander-in-Chief  has accepted no responsibility for the collapse of the Arab Spring leading to the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya but continued to blame a video until Fox News reporting uncovered the truth.

Moreover, Obama’s energy policies have added significantly to the Nation’s deficit and placed our national security in jeopardy.

According to an article entitled “The Air Force’s Fuel Problem” in Air Force Magazine’s July, 2012 issue, it stated that in 2009 the forecast for a gallon of fuel in 2011 was set at $2.37.  However, it reached $3.40 creating  a deficit of more than $3 billion dollars.

Unfortunately, the Air Force, just one branch of our military is left to find solutions to mitigate fuel cost increases that include reducing flying hours, seeking engine upgrades at an immediate cost and cutting back on operations and maintenance. The same is true of the Navy Department now saddled with purchasing huge quantities of Bio-Diesel to power the fleet at costs exceeding oil based Diesel by more than 25%.

These actions are dangerous to say the least in light of the unstable situation existing in the Middle East.

The Obama campaign is built upon a series of lies in an effort to hide the President’s dismal record over the past four years.  Obama, in his fog of narcissism believes the following:

  • Over 5.2 million jobs have been created as a result of his policies over the past 27 months.
  • Health care costs for every American will fall dramatically as Obamacare is implemented.
  • Having tried his ideas we are on the right track proving that his policies work.
  • Al Qaeda is on the retreat, Osama Bin Laden is dead and democracy is on the rise in the Middle East.

Compare his imagination to that of reality:

  • The U-6 unemployment rate still remains at 14.6% with 23 million Americans unemployed or underemployed.
  • 47 million people are currently sustained on food stamps.
  • The Annual Deficit continues at over $1 trillion.
  • Health care costs have risen by over 30% since the imposition of Obamacare and are expected to add over $2.5 trillion to the deficit over the next 10 years.
  • The Islamic Brotherhood is in power in Egypt and threatens the entire middle east with a move toward Sharia Law and radical Islamic control.

Given the reality as stated above I think it is obvious who is the target for Obama’s revenge.  That target is “We the People.”

Only your vote can stop the madness by making Barack Obama and his Administration a “One-Term Proposition” to quote the President.

Early Voters-There is No One In the Voting Booth With You!

by Jayne D. Frank

All over the Country, you are making your way into the voting booth for early voting to make the most important choice of your lifetime – that of the President of the United States.  It is extremely unfortunate that much of this voting takes place a full month before the scheduled November 6 election, because you will not have had a chance to personally evaluate the candidates from their answers in the Debates, and much can happen to our economy and national security in the upcoming month which could affect your vote.

But the important things to remember when voting are:  1)  There is no union official following you into the booth and no one that will be casting that ballot with you, 2) there is no one in the booth that will make you feel guilty should you no longer feel the first “black” President has performed his duties, and 3) there is only your intellect, knowledge and gut feeling about the path our country is taking and the future of our children that will be with you in that voting booth.

The facts of the last four years and the record of  President Obama will be the only true reality that will help you make this crucial choice in 2012:

  • This President and his Administration lies to the American people about the condition of the economy and their ability to do anything about it.  This is because the President has no experience in the private sector and has no clue how to provide prosperity to the middle class.  His entire life has been spent denigrating the wealthy and capitalist endeavors in this Country and his sole goal is to redistribute your present and FUTURE earnings to those less fortunate.  The President cannot dispute the facts that the wealthy in this Country are your employers, and they overwhelmingly give a huge percentage of their personal income, by choice, to charities that take care of those less fortunate.  Mitt Romney personally chose to give over $4 million of his money in 2011 to poor people.  The wealthy in this Country will be the only ones able to provide you and your family with a secure working environment with the opportunity of millions of new good jobs.
  • You alone are responsible for making the choice of whether your lives and those of your spouse, partner and children will be  negatively affected by choosing to rehire a President that has not done the job he was hired to do over the past four years.  Is there more regulation and interference in the choices you make for your family and will you will be able to provide a comfortable life for them going forward because of the choice you make?  The Obama Government is already in your church making decisions about whether you must support partial birth abortion and contraception; he is in your child’s school changing your children’s lunch choices often leaving them hungry and unable to properly stay focused and learn during the afternoon; his Administration is changing the curriculum of your children’s school to distort, eliminate, or refocus their learning,  not on the basics that can provide them with good jobs, but to better agree with his socialist redistribution statist agenda.  Because of Obama’s regulations and mandates which have hurt small business in this Country, the prospects for you or your family to better your financial condition in the next decade will be severely restricted should you vote to elect him for a second term and continue his policies.
  • Obamacare, unless replaced with a more workable private market health system, will cut into your health choices, extend your waits for needed procedures much like other countries using a similar system, and your individual and/or family health costs will necessarily skyrocket to cover all the people intended to be covered under this flawed legislation.
  • Your cost of living has skyrocketed under the Obama Administration.  Precipitated in large part by the sheer arrogance of the Administration not to tap into and expand our natural resources such as our own off shore oil resources, shale oil and natural gas (in lieu of more “green” energy that costs more and is unreliable at best).  The gasoline prices at the pump have doubled since Obama took office causing the average American family to make budget decisions from the resulting increases in food prices and consumables against paying for gas  to drive to work should they be fortunate enough to have a job.  Can your family afford to continue $4/gallon gas or higher any longer, not to mention how home heating fuel will increase as we approach the winter months?  Because of the high cost of gasoline to ship goods, your  grocery bill is at an all-time high and you are already making decisions for your family whether to feed them cheaper processed box meals rather than healthier and more expensive fresh produce or meats that provide the nutrients your children need.
  • Finally, we only have to look back two weeks at the fact that President Obama and his surrogates deliberately lied to the American people about issues of national security.  They lied to our face about our Americans having been killed by spontaneous protests of a video instead of telling us that Al Qaeda was alive and well and had purposely killed Americans in Libya on the anniversary of our original 9/11 attack.  If he lied about this, how many times will he lie to us about your family’s national security in order to make himself appear more peaceful and anti-aggressive?  As Governor Huckabee indicated this morning, Watergate was the largest Presidential scandal in this Country before Libya, but people did not die in Watergate.  Americans die and continue to die under this President’s leadership.  Don’t put your family at risk with a President who routinely bends the truth when it is convenient to further his agenda and makes the wrong decisions for the American people .

So what candidate should you vote for?  I think you know the answer to that question, so go alone into the voting booth and vote your conscience for your future and the future of your family and our Nation.

National Security and Our Borders-When Will It Become our Government’s Priority?

by Jayne Frank

Now that the mid-term elections are almost history, I know that one of the most contentious and inaccurate debates Congress and the President are going to have in the remainder of 2010 and through 2011 will be about legislation giving illegal immigrants amnesty.  Keep in mind that more than 60% of Americans have repeatedly said that they want legislation passed to secure and protect our borders before any dialogue or debates happens about what to do with the 15-22 million true illegal immigrants here in this Country.

A person could spend days on the internet searching for accurate information and statistics about Americans murdered in Mexico and illegal immigrant crime in the U.S., and it would be safe to say, all of the data available is compromised by the intent or agenda of the person, firm, organization or governmental authority reporting the data.  The U.S. State Department is one of the worst in keeping to itself what is actually happening here and in Mexico as it relates to murder, cartel and human smuggling across the border.  The most serious compilation of material and facts was gleaned from a site called http:usborderpatrol.com.  If you take the more than 45 minutes to read all of the factual and informative sections of this site, you will have your eyes opened to the true devastation happening along the Mexican/American border and the cost in lives and treasure that we can expect to see in the coming years if the U. S. Government does not act swiftly and decisively, without any thought to the political fallout of doing so.

The number of Americans murdered in Mexico is low but growing every year and is often compared to the number of people struck by lightning.  2009 saw approximately 78 people murdered in Mexico, and 90 struck by lightning in the U.S.  So I guess that makes it acceptable.  2008 had 50 Americans murdered and in 2007 there were 37.  What number of American lives snuffed out in Mexico is acceptable to our Government before they will take this threat seriously?  Perhaps we should wait until the number equates to the number of h1n1 deaths per year in the U.S. or 4,000 people or some other similar arbitrary and meaningless number.  There have been 50 kidnappings of Americans in the last two years as well with that number increasing every year.  The State Department says that there are approximately 1-1/2 million tourists going to Mexico every year; again trying to imply a small number of murders is acceptable.

You will also not see any verifiable statistics on the number of deaths in the U.S. attributable to illegal aliens, because our Government will not grasp what the meaning of “illegal” is.   What happened to this Country and this Government that destruction of human life, property rights, living in fear, and more importantly the total disregard of our existing laws does not rise to a point of alarm in which we say “no more?”  Just today, there was little or no coverage about the first beheading of a man in Chandler, AZ, a thriving, populous city adjacent to Phoenix; just thrown aside as just another drug-related murder when this is one of the methods of murder employed by Mexican cartels.

California is almost bankrupt, is mostly an entire entitlement state, overrun in Los Angeles alone with over 400,000 gang arrests made up of Latin American gang sectors, and they have the highest number of crossings, smuggling, and drug problems in the San Diego/Tijuana sector.  Arizona and Texas are not far behind with murders, shootings at our own Border Patrol Agents, bounties on the heads of our Sheriffs, kidnappings, human smuggling and gun running, all at levels not able to be combated with the current resources on the border.

In this coming lame duck session of Congress and in the 2011/2012 Presidential campaign season, all of us must be vigilant and put Border Security and deporting of criminal aliens and those that repeatedly cross our borders illegally, as one of the first priorities of the work for the American People, not only so that our economy will start to heal, but to prevent deterioration of our national security,.  We must hold each and every one of our Senators and Representatives’ feet to the fire to come up with legislation to accomplish this and to make sure President Obama does nothing in the way of “alternative” legislation (e.g., Executive Orders, Bills passed without voting) to appease his base.  The American people are fed up and we must stand with our Border States and make our Federal Government enforce the laws in place for our national security and stop the constant flow of money that America does not have, into illegal aliens’ health care, education and into sanctuary cities.

Failure of the Presidency

by Richard H. Frank

The American people are bearing witness to the failure of a Presidency and his administration.  Today, the sixth in an increasing parade of advisors to Barack Obama and his administration will occur with the departure of General Jim Jones, National Security Advisor to the President.  The White House will attempt to put a positive spin on this resignation.  However, there is no hiding the fact that General Jones was not happy in his role for Obama, and although he would never admit it, Jones did not hold Obama in high regard as Commander-in-Chief.

Likewise, Obama’s appointment of Tom Donilon, a political insider with no international or military experience is more evidence of the inexperience and incompetence of our Community Organizer President.  We may now add National Security to the list of Obama’s failures which include the economy, stifling our move towards energy independence at every turn, nationalizing private industry and legislating against the Will of the people.

A review of Obama appointees reveals a never-ending list of academiens,  political hacks and avowed socialists.  We have lost count of the 30+czars appointed by Obama without the advice and consent of Congress that usurps Constitutional authority and erodes the balance of power within the Federal Government at the expense of the States and “We the People.”

Our President’s words do not represent his actions and if left unchecked, those actions will cause irreparable damage to our Republic.

His continuing refusal to enforce existing immigration law makes this most recent appointment of a National Security Advisor suspect.  Notwithstanding the obvious evidence of his lack of qualifications and experience to lead this Nation, Obama’s rhetoric while abroad, demeaning the United States in hopes of creating a foreign policy of appeasement is further evidence of his failure to uphold his sworn oath to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”

November 2, 2010 is the time for every American patriot to exercise their sovereign duty and vote for those candidates that oppose and have opposed the Obama agenda.  Anything less will place our national security and liberty in jeopardy.

I feel violated!

by Jayne D. Frank

Just as any victim of sexual abuse will tell you, you go through a long period afterward of feeling violated, shocked and helpless.  Then there comes a period somewhere down the road that you’ve had enough and you get tired of being the “victim.”  Well, this is my analogy of what it has felt like the past year and a half as a citizen in Barack Obama’s America!

Despite my best efforts to fight back, I have seen ruthless and secretive actions by our Congress and President pushing a healthcare bill down our throats that America cannot afford.  We have endured months of a coordinated effort on the part of the Administration’s cronies and associates to push an excessive, costly, energy bill through, which is now in the Senate for consideration (H.R. 2454). This bill is nothing more than an attempt to control every part of our property rights and our ability to live as we choose.  On over three separate occasions,  people were nearly killed in huge numbers by radical Islam Extremists (but by the Grace of God), because this country’s national security has become a very low priority for the Obama Administration.  The President has done everything in his power, especially if you look at the bills and resolutions flowing through Congress, to take care of his “global” image and weaken the image of America as a world leader.

Now, after one of the proudest moments I have had when Arizona passed a law to enforce the Federal Government’s responsibility for border security, we see his Administration chastising the great Arizona people and their State government, for getting tired of being victims and standing up for their legal rights to preserve their state.  All we hear about is how sad a situation it is that all these illegal immigrants and their kids are here, and how they are truly misunderstood because they came here to work, get healthcare and live a better life.  What about the quality of life for American citizens, our children and grandchildren?

I for one, will continue to fight for “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” of the people legally in this country, remembering the hundreds of thousands of soldiers that died for that very liberty in many wars and battles.  They did not fight and lose their lives so that our borders could be sponges allowing untold numbers of illegals, many of whom are criminals, to penetrate our hospitals, schools, work places and cities, and then turn around and demand their rights.

If liberal Americans can just get past their bias that says that people who want to uphold our Constitution, are either racist, unfeeling or dispassionate, we might have a chance to fix this problem by open and honest debate.  But for now, looking at  the course our country is on, I do feel violated, and hope that every legal American registers to vote and goes out to the primaries and elections this year, to reaffirm that they too, are tired of being victims.  We have to vote for honest men and women with integrity and a true love for this Country who honor and will uphold the Constitution in their actions.  We have so much work to do right now in this Country, and it can all be done.  We need to close our borders, get jobs back for the citizens of this Country, stop the wasteful spending in our Government and get our economy back on track, as well as refocusing our efforts on keeping America safe.
