Wake up and Recognize the Warning Signs!

by Jayne D. Frank

With every passing night, we watch the news about the European financial crises which are  intrinsically wound with the United States. We watch as N. Korea thumbs it nose at S. Korea and the United States in a new “dare ya” scenario as they kill hundreds of people, intending to instigate  something with both countries.  Americans see indications every day on the news that the Iranian leadership is laughing at the United States’ lack of will to impose stiff sanctions on them for their defiance of their promise not to become a nuclear power.

In our own country, we see the most  corrupt government that I can remember in my lifetime, continue to pass illegal legislation such as Obamacare, refuse to defend the U.S. by protecting and securing our borders.  They bad-mouth the only media in the country that tells us the truth and they are passing laws that are going to silence discourse once and for all on the internet, and through trying to enforce the fairness doctrine.  The Administration is forcing higher taxes on individuals and businesses, all in an attempt to redistribute wealth and end the free enterprise system as we know it.  This is also an attempt to make the U.S. a part of the “global economic system.”

All Americans reading this blog must wake up out of their stupor!  We are on the precipice of losing our beloved Constitutionally driven, and God-given, freedom-loving Country.  It is now almost June 1 and the very first time we have to do anything positive which will tell the Obama Administration and Congress that we do not approve of their agenda and course of action and we will not stand silent, is the 2010 elections.

It is incumbant on all conservative, freedom-loving patriots to form together with other like-minded Americans because “the squeaky wheel gets the grease,” and we must stand as ONE, speak as ONE, and try to restore our Republic as ONE!  There are dozens of great patriotic groups out there doing the work to get the people out of Congress who are not performing as their constituents have asked.  There are watchdogs groups that are watching legislation being introduced by both Houses of Congress so that we know what the Government is trying to do to us.  Many of these groups back conservative candidates and put their money behind these candidates.  All of these efforts to do one thing – restore honor and integrity to our U. S. Government and to start to push back on the socialist agenda of the Obama Administration.

If you have not joined a 912 group, Resistnet, Americans for Prosperity, Tea Party Patriots, American Solutions, or any other group that has conservative principles and values as its platform, shame on you!  Don’t be one of those people who whines about was is going wrong without doing your best to change it.  Don’t think that conservative candidates get elected without hard work from people who agree with them.  And most of all, don’t think that it won’t matter anyway in the 2010 elections and stay home!

Newt Gingrich Determined to Seal His Own Destiny for a Possible 2012 Run

by Jayne D. Frank

At one point in time, I truly thought Newt Gingrich would be a dynamic Republican candidate for the Office of the President, but actions he has taken over time and things that have come out of his mouth have really shown him to be the kind of man I could not now vote for. He is someone whose supposed Republican ideals sway with the wind and change depending on whom he is trying to impress the most.  Today, I read the summary of his speech which he made last Wednesday in Philadelphia where he stated the “Tea Party Movement Will be Militant Wing of the Republican Party.”

In 1994, Newt seemed to have it all together and brought about the “Contract with America” which was supposed to be the basis upon which the Republican Party in Congress would go forward to remain loyal to their core values of conservatism and smaller government. The Party was to make the actions of Congress accountable to the People once more after a long run at a Democratically controlled Congress.  Honesty and integrity would follow and a new Republican Party would thence go forward and right the wrongs and mistakes that Democratic Congresses in the past had made.  Year by year after that Contract, we saw incumbent members of the Republican Party in Congress stray from these  core values that got them elected, and those are the very members of Congress that we now call RINOS; they have forgotten who elected them and would rather sacrifice the will of the people to stay wrapped  in their soft cushy Washington lifestyle.  Not This Year Republicans! We are done just giving you our loyalty at the ballot box.  You have to earn it.

Since Newt is now contemplating again a run for President in the 2012 election, he thinks he can pave his way to an election guaranteeing that he will take some of the “Obama voters” to his side by denigrating the Tea Party Movement.  Newt, what don’t some of you in Washington get?”  The Tea Party Movement isn’t one group.  We are all comprised of honest hard-working Americans who came together earlier this year with other people of the same view that the present Administration was going in the wrong direction and that Republicans are just as culpable as Democrats in taking us there.  We have met together with 912 members, other Tea Party organizations, Freedom Works, Resistnet, and many more groups comprised of peaceful Americans that wanted to speak with one voice.  We meet in the mornings, in the evenings and on weekends working on projects to re-educate ourselves and our children on the meaning and intent of the Constitution.  We follow state and federal legislation to make sure that Congress tows the line and will vote for what We the People want, and we speak out when it does not.  We all organized early in 2009 and 2 million of us left our families to go to Washington last September 12 to stand for hours peacefully before the Capital Steps to tell Congress that we wanted them to stop the spending and the massive takeover of our healthcare and our private enterprise system.

No event that I have been at during the past year has ever been anything but peaceful, and now you, Mr. Gingrich,  have betrayed us Republicans, Democrats, Independent, Libertarians all, to say that we are nothing but militant.     What you should be shining the light on is the new liberal focus in this election year to start infiltrating our meetings helped along with the  prodding and money of the Moveon.org groups.   This is truly a sign that our message to Washington was resonating and that the Liberals and Progressive felt threatened by our voices.

You cannot have it both ways, Mr.Gingrich.  You cannot call yourself a Republican and smack us in the face with your comments, and you surely will never get our vote in the primaries, should you decide to run, because you have shown that you are no less a Progressive than they are.

Bill Clinton’s Attempt to Distort History.

By: Richard H. Frank

Bill Clinton, at a recent Democrat fundraiser, made a statement that the same forces are present today in America that were present at the time as the of the bombing of the Oklahoma Federal Building.  This is indicative of how out of touch he and his Party are with the citizenry. His remarks were timed to counter the grass-roots protests taking place in Washington against President Obama’s policies. Typically, he inferred that the protesters were against diversity within the government and although he did not say as much his comments were meant to label them as racist.

Somewhere between 1994 and today Mr. Clinton has had a lapse of memory with regard to the onerous taxation, heavy-handed tactics employed by His Attorney General,  Janet Reno, in Waco Texas and with regard to a nine-year old orphan forced to return to Cuba as opposed to remaining in the custody of relatives in Florida. He certainly must feel vindicated by the passage of health care legislation by the 111th Congress, over the protests of America , since Hillarycare failed with the same disapproval level during his administration. He also renewed his attack on the First Amendment’s protection for  freedom of speech by further asserting that “Talk Radio” and now internet “blogs” such as this one poison the minds of Americans through misinformation and proporgating lies against the policies of the political party in office.

The Democrat Party elite such as Mr. Clinton will carry the message loud and clear between now and November that the Tea Party and the 912 movements represent only the far right fringe elements of the Republican Party and their radical agenda. Demographics for the movement paint an entirely different picture. According to a poll conducted in March 2010 by “Politics and Pucks” 74% of members are Independent leaning Republicans, 45% are men. 77% voted for McCain, 15% voted for Obama, 88% are white and 61% have high school and some college education. These percentages are certainly not representative of the fringe elements within any political party.

The Obama Administration in concert with the main stream media have now been joined by the voice of Bill Clinton in their orchestrated attempt to suppress any opposition to President Obama’s socialist policies. Their plan consisted of three strategies. First “Ignore”, and should that not work then “Mock” and lastly “Attack”. The first two strategies have only caused the movement to grow in strength and size. What the Democrats and Republicans currently in power have to fear is the real agenda of this grass-roots movement which is a return to the values and principles contained in our Constitution, small Federal government and responsible spending on the part of Congress.

The demographics represented within the Tea Party movement are truly representative of most informed Americans. We want and demand individual accountability for our lives; not government mandates and regulations by the government that stifle economic growth and prosperity. We want and demand a return to free market principles and the right of every individual to succeed or fail at whatever endeavor he decides to undertake without government interference.

The last time I looked the United States of America was still a “Representative Republic” where government was the servant of the people and not the reverse. Whenever any politician identifies himself as a “Progressive” he is admitting to an ideology that is counter to the Constitution and should be rejected by the electorate. When any people are rewarded by government without making any contribution to society those people will eventually lose their liberty and become slaves to the whims of those men in the government. Redistribution of wealth and creating a society totally depended upon big government is what the Tea Party and 912 movements are opposed to and pledged to defeat.

President Obama says he is “Amused” at the Rallies and that we should “Thank Him”

by Jayne D. Frank

President Obama said today “I was amused at the people in the rallies saying they don’t want taxes.”  “You would think they would be saying  “Thank You.”

What should we be thanking you for, Mr. President?  Perhaps that there is currently a 16% increase in people facing foreclosure or for the 10% of prime borrowers that are now late with their payments?

Perhaps we should thank you for your disastrous health care law that will cause millions to lose their coverage because the law has been drafted in such a way to drive private insurers out of business and to revert to your preferred single payer system.

Oh yes, I know, we should thank you for taking away any incentives for small businesses to stay alive because you have put such onerous burdens on them with this health care legislation.

Most likely you would like us to thank you for the Government’s nationalizing major elements of the free market system including GM, Chrysler and the banking and insurance system. Thus far, your actions have cost the American taxpayer untold billions of dollars to keep companies afloat that by the laws of economics should have expired.

I personally want to thank you for bowing before every leader in the world as if to say America is subservient to their desires and has now become a weak nation in their eyes.

You and your Administration also think Americans should thank you for trampling upon our U.S. Constitution with almost every action you take because you think it is “flawed.”

We want to Thank You for your support for amnesty and a rapid path to citizenship for all those illegals that have broken our existing laws.

Thanks definitely should go to you for indebting this nation for generations to come so that our children and grandchildren don’t have a hope of ever living in the kind of America that we do; definitely a thanks goes out for spending their future into oblivion.

Thank you is in order for your uncontrolled spending contained within your $3.7  trillion budget plan that includes $1.3 trillion in deficit spending.

I definitely know we should thank you, Mr. Obama, for the real number of 17% unemployed, about 7% of which have just stopped looking.

Taxpayers are really neglectful if they don’t thank you for the $74 billion that you have spent so far in unemployment benefits, instead of incentivizing private businesses with tax cuts; this keeps more Americans looking for handouts from the Government because there are NO JOBS.

Mr. President, we certainly owe you a big Thank You for giving enemy combatants that would kill Americans in a heartbeat, the same rights as any law-abiding American.

Definitely, Thank You for denying that America was founded on Judeo-Christian values and we are “no longer a Christian nation.”

Fundamentally transforming America into a third world country is certainly something all Americans need to thank you for.

You know what, President Obama, we do owe this to you, and I want you to be assured that every  American who cherishes our Republic will show up to Thank You properly in November of this year, and again in November of 2012.

The Obama Administration Needs to Face Reality!

By: Richard H. Frank

With everyday that passes our country falls into greater economic distress under the Obama administration. The administration is either totally incompetent and not able to recognize the truth, or they are arrogant beyond belief and think the people are stupid enough to believe any lie they tell us. Examples of assertions on the part of  the Administration are as follows:

  • The economy is in recovery and the worst has passed. This may be a jobless recovery.
  • Small businesses are being helped by tax incentives and credits to hire more employees. This is all part of the Democrat’s legislative initiatives.
  • Under Obamacare the average family’s health care premiums will be reduced by $2500.00.
  • There will be no tax increase for anyone earning less than $250,000 or was it $200,000 per year.
  • Ninety-five percent of Americans have received a tax cut under the Obama Administration.
  • We have saved or created 2 million jobs as a result of the Stimulus legislation.

My wife and I recently returned from a trip that covered extensive parts of Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida. Nowhere could we see any evidence to support any of the foregoing Administration’s assertions. On the contrary, what we did see were businesses closed that rely largely on tourism. One in four restaurants that thrived, in some cases for 25 – 40 years, are now gone forever. Shopping centers and malls sit abandoned or with vacancies approaching 50%. It is not unusual to find between 50 – 70% of houses for sale or undergoing foreclosure, especially in industrialized areas that once supported the Automotive Industry.  Many homes have been totally abandoned and left to vandals who steal the major mechanical and electrical systems from these homes many of which are new or less than 10 years old.

The small businessmen that are still able to survive indicate that bank loans are next to impossible to obtain. Their working capital is tightly restricted and they are relying on cash flow to maintain their dwindling inventories. None are indicating their intention to hire new employees, and as more information becomes available regarding Obamacare they may in fact reduce their workforce.

Those communities whose businesses rely heavily on tourism have been devastated. In states such as Michigan and Florida it is not unusual to find 30% have been forced to close their doors. In Michigan the downward spiral began in 2007 and continues today largely due to high unemployment associated with the struggling Automotive Industry.

The Obama Administration is content to blame all the bad news on the Bush Administration and their recognition that only they are smart enough to clean up the mess through out of control spending, onerous regulation of the financial industry and outrageous taxing in order to keep the ship of state afloat.

Criticism of Obama’s policies are met with charges of racism and any suggestion to change his course of action by dramatic spending cuts and reduction in taxes are dismissed out of hand. The President’s latest 17 minute rambling discourse in answer to a woman’s question as to how his policies were helping her are further evidence of a leader out of touch with the people he was elected to serve.

The Democrats and the President continue to show distain for the Tea Party Patriots and the 912 movement in this country as fringe radical groups not representative of America. In fact these groups are the real reflection of the American electorate. They stand for the rights of and responsibility of the individual, small government and the return to the principles and values enumerated in the Constitution. Continuing to underestimate these groups by either political party or philosophy is done so at their own risk. Americans will only take so much abuse from the government before they stand up and remind our elected representatives who they work for and who is the sovereign.

The time is now for change we really can believe in and a return to our Representative Republic form of government with elected officials that truly reflect the will of “We the People”.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf? Apparently the Democrats

by Jayne D. Frank

What do small kids do when they find themselves in trouble?  Blame their brothers, sisters or friends; anything to avoid repercussions for what they themselves did wrong.  Well our Congress is not any different.  They have dised the American  People, ignored their will, and in large majority voted for this health care debacle which will have deleterious effects for us, our children and our grandchildren for decades to come.  As a result, We the People have spoken – we will vote you out of office in 2010.

The Democrats have been scrambling for what to do about this, and voila!  The anarchists, crazy people and low lifers that are at the fringe of either party, gave them the perfect ammunition this week to attempt to  dissuade the American people from voicing their opinions any longer and perhaps stopping their attempts to replace the Dems in November.  These extremists emailed, called and one even took a shot at a Congressman’s office in the name of this health care vote, so out come the “Democratic talking points.”

They now are generalizing and calling the Tea Party and 912 movements “racist,” “hateful” and downright dangerous.

I for one left my business and my family in Michigan and went to the huge 9/12/09 Washington, D.C. protest and rally which saw about 2 million people put their lives aside to come to Washington to stand for 4-6 hours in the sun, before the Capital Steps, to say “No.”  I personally walked towards the Capital with blacks, Vietnam vets, people in wheelchairs, and  huge amounts of  young adults worried about the debt we were leaving them.  I talked to people in their 70s and 80s, some of whom came to Washington only weeks after knee and hip surgery, to make sure their voices were heard.  We stood with our hand-made signs, and there wasn’t a single incident in Washington of violence from these millions of people who stretched from the Capital to the Washington Monument. Afterwards, there was no trash dumped on the sides of the street, and in fact, the Capital Police said that this was the most respectful crowd that they had seen in a long time come to protest in Washington, D.C.

There are 340 million people in the United States, and a pretty solid 59% of voters, for the last 9 months, have been expressing their disgust and disapproval of the massive Government takeover of healthcare.  We went to town hall meetings, rallied in D. C. on little notice, met with our representatives, wrote Congress and the President, wrote blogs.  Often times, we put aside the desires of our kids to do what was right for them and try to make Congress understand that we did not want this Government-controlled healthcare bill.

We will not permit the dangerous fringe elements and the charges of “racism” from mostly the fringe elements of Congress, to deter us in our quest to turn back the spending, replace the Congressman who voted for this bill, and as Glenn  Beck advocates, restore honor to our Government.

Democrats, you only demean yourselves when you stoop to calling your American constituents names and we will do our job peaceably in November.   The new Administration is well versed in the Alinsky’s philosophy, one part of which is to manufacture crises.  We Americans pray to God that the Government does their job and pursues those truly perverted individuals who would threaten anyone’s life because of passage of a bill.

Barack Obama’s Betrayal to His Oath to “Protect and Defend the Constitution”of the United States of America

By: Richard H. Frank

President Obama said that he wanted to “fundamentally change the United States of America”. Today during an interview on Fox News the President arrogantly interrupted Bret Baier and stated he didn’t care about the process used by Congress to pass health care reform. Apparently, the elite Constitutional professor, now our President, Barack Obama, never read Article I section 7 of the document. The process DOES matter, Mr. President, and you are a hypocrite to say it doesn’t matter. You are betraying your oath to the Constitution. What will it take before America sees you for the Marxist you really are?

Representative Republic my rear end! You and the 111th congress have turned our Republic into a mockery. Assuming the rule of law still exists in this country a nationwide rebellion will rise up and challenge the constitutionality of this legislative process and the legislation itself. ”We the People” will only be pushed so far before we push back. Should you sign this onerous legislation into law if passed by any process other than that prescribed in the Constitution the people will neuter your presidency in the 2010 election.

The President contends that this legislation is deficit neutral, when by all logic and any measure it cannot reduce the deficit and will increase taxes for all Americans. He was frustrated by questions being asked about the unconstitutional process being contemplated by congress to pass this bill and was unable to address what the bill did contain. He allowed it to slip that the bill when passed would eventually impact one sixth of the economy over time in a manner that would not be disruptive to the country. What planet does Obama live on anyway?

Seventy percent of Americans oppose this legislation and yet the President insists if passed it will assure that the “mythical Medicare Trust fund” will be strengthened by $500 Billion in cuts over time.  Who does he think he is kidding? He didn’t answer a single tough question during the Fox interview but stumbled and stammered, reverted to doubletalk and finally fell back on his rhetoric that “It is the right thing to do”. Once again we saw arrogance and hypocrisy on display by President Obama.
