Trump Delivers 1000 Cuts to Obama and his Administration!

By: Richard H. Frank

Just 30 days after the historic election of Donald J. Trump to become our 45th President on January 20, 2017 the President-Elect is proving how inept Obama and his administration have been for the past eight years. Obama boasted that he had a “phone and a pen” as the tools with which to conduct his imperial Presidency. The rash of executive orders and thousands of regulations imposed on the citizenry during his reign have been devastating to the American economy and the very security of the nation. Political correctness has reached its pinnacle where truth may not be spoken to power without the fear of reprisal and being labeled as a bigot or racist. “American exceptionalism” are not words to be found in the vocabulary of the Obama administration.

Yet today we are witnessing a movement, spurred on by the forgotten American led by Trump, aimed at restoring this nation to its former place among the leading nations of the world. The mantra “America First” can be heard resounding from the heartland of this great country. Donald Trump, even before he assumes the Office of President, has accomplished more by picking up the phone and calling business leaders and asking for their help to restore jobs than all the executive actions and regulations imposed by Obama over the past eight years. American voters are wise to the distortions and manipulation of data used by Obama and the liberal media to create a record based on lies regarding the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare,” climate change and job creation under his watch. “We the People” are sick and tired of the corrupt Washington establishment and are watching closely as Trump chooses his cabinet and selects people who will take action in his quest to “drain the swamp” of the parasites residing in the hallowed halls of Government.

There are talkers and there are doers both of which aspire to make changes for the better and lead our Country. The major difference between talkers and doers may be summed up in a simple exercise taught by Dale Carnegie. It goes something like this: “I know men in the ranks who will stay in the ranks. Why? I’ll tell you why. Simply because they haven’t the ability to get things done.” Barack Obama should have stayed in the ranks as one that talks a great deal and accomplishes little. Donald J. Trump on the other hand is proving that he is able to get things done.

His agenda for the first 100 days in office is substantial and geared to pave the way for economic recovery, job creation in the private sector, infrastructure rebuilding, restoring our military and returning to a nation under the rule of law. Every action planned under his agenda is another cut of a thousand that will move toward Making America Great Again.

The Most Important Question Asked in Sunday’s Debate!

By: Richard H. Frank

The entire media, mainstream and others, seemed to miss the candidate’s answer to the question that will have the most long-lasting impact on every American, our children and grandchildren. At least they are neglecting to talk about it and prefer to focus on the personal attacks and scandals that occupy the headlines.

The question was, “What sort of people would each candidate appoint to open positions on the Supreme Court?”

Hillery Clinton droned on in her usual fashion about how the Republican controlled Senate refused to give Obama’s latest nominee a hearing before embarking upon a diatribe of issues including how Trump would appoint Judges that would overturn “Roe vs Wade” and Gay marriage and how her selections would overturn the “Citizens United” decision on campaign finance. She was quick to add that the Second Amendment would be tampered with to make mandatory background checks the law of the land.

Her priority was to appoint Justices having the same view as she holds with regard to “social justice” issues. She implied that her nominations would represent the diversity in America and not necessarily be confined to Federal Judges. Could this be she is referring to people like Obama or Elizabeth Warren?

Never once in her answer did she mention upholding the “Bill of Rights” nor did she use the word “Constitution”.

Donald Trump, on the other hand stated that he had put forth a list of 20 candidates all of which held beliefs in the vein of the late Justice Antonin Scalia that would faithfully discharge their oath to uphold the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.

Hillery Clinton has publicly stated her intention to continue the policies of Barack Obama. His strategy and policies were revealed in a book entitled “Obama’s Blueprint for America” and specifically pointed to his intention to make appointments to the Supreme Court with Judges holding “secular progressive” leanings. He stated in his run for the Presidency in 2008 that the Constitution was a “basically flawed document.” Thank God that the court has seen differently and reversed many of his executive orders as being unconstitutional.

Without the checks and balances enumerated in our Constitution this nation will wake one day to find we have achieved the status of becoming a “Banana Republic” under the thumb of a corrupt and oppressive dictator. Only “WE the People” can stop this from happening by exercising our “Constitutional” right to vote and elect representatives that believe in our “Constitution” as written.

How do you spell Corrupt? – CLINTON!

By: Richard H. Frank

Just how stupid does Bill and Hillary Clinton along with the Obama Justice Department think we American Citizens are? If you believe the chance meeting Between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch , in a private hangar, at the Phoenix Airport was by accident I have some magic beans to sell you. Followed by todays statement by Attorney General Loretta Lynch wherein she did not recuse herself from the two ongoing investigations against Hillary Clinton but asserted she would accept the recommendation of the Director of the FBI is a classic Obama use of smoke and mirrors.

I cannot believe that our government has under the Obama Administration sunken to the level where the rule of law and the rules in place to regulate those charged with enforcing the law and rules are so blatantly disregarded. Our Nation is on the road to tyranny and we are moving downhill toward the abyss at a speed never experienced before in our history. The Washington elites within both political parties are to blame and it’s time that “We the People” take our country back.

When in your wildest imagination did you think we could have a Democrat Candidate for the Presidency facing possible indictment for placing our national security at risk and corruption with regard to her influencing contributions to the Clinton Foundation, all because she believes the rules and the law does not apply if your name happens to be Clinton. If this is the best our country has to offer I feel for the future of our children and grandchildren who may never know the true meaning of “liberty and justice for all”.

How many times must Hillary Clinton be caught in a lie before she is disqualified from holding government office of any sort in the United States of America? Unfortunately, for those of us that served our country in the military, worked and contributed to the security of our families and America, and now are witness to the decline of our Nation across the world, we can only harbor disgust for those elected to power in our government. The ultimate power in this nation resides with “We the People” as vested to us within our Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. No person is entitled to become president of the United States of America because of their race, religion, heritage or gender. Hillary Clinton believes she is entitled to the presidency because of her twenty years of service and because of the historical significance of being the first woman to secure the nomination of her party.

Her record as First Lady has no bearing on her being qualified and her record in the Senate and as Secretary of State are disastrous. She claims to be a Progressive Democrat. In reality she is a left leaning tyrant set upon dismantling the tenants upon which our country was founded and rewriting the meaning of the Constitution.

Should she survive the FBI investigation and proceed to become the Democratic Candidate for President the only thing left standing in her way will be “We the People”. As we enter this July 4th celebration of our independence we need to take a minute from enjoying the food, fireworks and celebrations to remember that we all are responsible for the direction our country takes and for examining the character of those we place in office to administer this exceptional Nation of ours.

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!

Power is an Aphrodisiac and That Is Why Trump Tops the Polls

by Jayne D. Frank

The media is befuddled about the soaring numbers for Donald Trump but as a woman who worked in a corporate world dominated by men, I am not.  Consider first the fact that for almost 8 years now, we have had a President who is devoid of leadership skills, and has done everything in his power to avoid making decisions about the future of this country’s economic future and our security.  We started seeing him bow to foreign leaders early on in his Presidency and this appeasement mentality has continued to this day.  Americans have stayed quiet but have continued to build up the rage in their hearts over someone who would bring this country to the point of deterioration that it is today.

We have also seen this President ridicule our military might and our military leaders.  He doesn’t ask for advice on foreign affairs from the most distinguished powerful military men that this country has but if given advice, he completely disregards it.  The cuts to the Military have decimated our forces to the point that we could not now fight two wars at once should that ever become necessary.

The point to be made here is that Obama’s administration has become the most effeminate administration that I have ever seen in my lifetime; soft to the point of being totally useless.

In my 20s, in my early career, I was surrounded by powerful men who were not afraid to make hard and sometimes not too popular decisions to benefit their company and their shareholders.  This was such an aphrodisiac to women around these men and many people aspired to go on and have careers where they too could take risks and make career advances.

I believe right now that Donald Trump is tapping into two main emotions:  Women who want their men to be strong and make us safe, something none of us are now under Obama.  The second emotion is the underlying rage that American conservatives have felt and have been powerless to do anything about for the last two terms of Obama.  We also sent conservatives to Congress to do the work that we sent them there to do, and under Boehner and McConnell’s leadership, that has failed as well.  Americans have also had it up to their eyeballs with dynasties such as Clinton and Bush, and we certainly don’t want to see anyone elected with such a past and present climate of corruption around them.

So, despite Trump’s crassness, his abrasiveness, and seeming unwillingness to “go along to get along”, I think you will see a continued willingness on the part of Americans to overlook the substance of what he says right now and feed off his aura of power and our disgust at what Obama has done to America.  Whether that translates to a GOP nominee win for Trump, that is probably going to be decided by the far right conservatives in this country who will vote to sacrifice this country once again to another far left Progressive who will continue down the course set by Obama.

Corruption By Any Other Name

By: Richard H. Frank

Politicians and the Washington spin doctors are very creative at turning a phrase to avoid calling a particular act by one of their associates exactly what it truly is. For instance the President never tells a lie. He may have misspoken or his words may have been taken out of context or twisted to achieve some particular agenda in support of his ideology. Corruption, High Crimes and Misdemeanors, bribery and outright graft are all ignored and classified under the heading of “crony capitalism” or “it’s the right thing to do” in the case of such perceived social injustices as illegal immigration, gay marriage and abortion. When something goes wrong or takes an unexpected turn for the worse as the result of Government action “unintended consequences are always to blame and not the ideology behind the action. Take Obamacare for example. The law was to provide health care for over thirty million uninsured Americans at reduced costs for every family. Instead after five years of confusion in the medical industry accounting for 1/6th of the economy we find premiums and deductibles have skyrocketed and real care diminished with over thirty million Americans still uninsured. Obama has ignored the provisions of the law and by fiat altered the language without congressional action to meet his political initiatives. All of his actions are in direct violation of the Constitution. The same is true for Obama’s executive actions with regard to immigration and if not for the action of one Federal Judge we would be on the verge of amnesty for every illegal immigrant presently in the United States and establishment of an open border policy for the country. “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The nuclear negotiations underway with Iran for the past two and one-half years are the perfect example of this foregoing quotation. We have a President obsessed with creating his legacy having failed to do so in his Presidency for the past six years. His statement that “Iran would never possess a Nuclear weapon on his watch” did not include any provision against his providing them with the path to acquiring that weapon after he left office. When pressured by Congress to give them final approval of any agreement (treaty) reached during the negotiations the talks are suddenly characterized as being a non-binding agreement not subject to Congressional approval as required by the Constitution. Additionally, Obama seems to think he can unilaterally remove sanctions imposed by act of Congress without their legislating that action. Now we have Hillary Clinton’s in-your-face violation of State Department rules and law regarding disclosure of her emails while serving as Secretary of State. She arrogantly contends that she was entitled to use a non-governmental controlled server to archive her emails and she alone had the authority to determine which of those communications were private and those that belonged to “we the people”. She holds herself above the law and takes refuge behind the Clinton Foundation on matters having the appearance of corruption. The Justice Department turns a blind eye to her actions contending that others in prior administrations disregarded the rules and protocols in place and thus it is no big deal. The latest revelations about Hillary and the Clinton Foundation involved in influence peddling while she held the position of Secretary of State have all the earmarks of corruption and enhancing the financial rewards to the Foundation and of the Clintons personally. Coincidence, I think not but without any evidence to the contrary the Clinton’s will just hunker down and wait for this storm to pass just as they have before on other scandals. Unfortunately, corruption is not the sole provence of the Democrats in office but can be found on both sides of the aisle in Congress and in the massive Federal bureaucracy consisting of agencies within our government. As long as the electorate in America remains apathetic and does not insist that our laws are to be enforced we open ourselves and this country up to corruption for which we must bear the expense. An expense not only in the form of dollars but in the loss of our very liberty. Corruption by any other name still stinks.

Disdain for Americans and Military Once Again on Display

by Jayne Frank

I watched with sadness as we started our “air strike campaign” against ISIS terrorists in Syria last evening; sad because it should have been done a year ago and also sad because this action is going nowhere without a decisive plan by this President to get these terrorists on the ground. Referred to as “cockroaches” this morning by a military commentator, ISIS and other terrorists will just move from place to place after bombing strikes and who is going to go after them?

This morning, late again as usual and anxious to “get out of Dodge” Barack Obama came to the White House microphone for less than 5 minutes and with all the resolve and patriotism of a gnat. So ashamed was I of his dispassion and his obvious disgust that he was dragged into doing something by the Military. There was not an ounce of genuine caring for the American people in his man’s voice. He is now on his way to the UN where he feels much more at ease trying to be the leader of everyone else’s country.

The only thing I got out of his speech was the veiled reference to “we work better when we work together” which was a reference, I believe, to the at least 5 Generals in our Military who have stated that this air campaign is doomed to fail unless we back our airmen up with Intelligence on the ground with American Special Operations troops.

The mid-term elections will be a resounding disapproval vote against Barack Obama’s foreign and domestic policies, and in 2016 Americans will make sure another Alinsky-inspired Democrat does not again get placed in the highest Office in our land. I just hope that what we all fear does not come true that ISIS wins over this current meager fight of ours against terrorism.
