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.

Americans Deserve The Government They Vote Into Power.

Following the re-election of Barack Obama as President in 2012, I decided that the Country deserved what they voted for and that many would spend the next four years experiencing buyer’s remorse. As a result my posts to this blog have become more infrequent as I observed the media and the public in general turn a deaf ear to the scandals being perpetuated by the Obama Administration.

How ignorant or apathetic have the citizens of this great nation become when they ignore the lies perpetuated by this President and his Administration? Every prediction related to Obamacare and the devastating impact it would have on the nation when the government controls one sixth of the economy are all coming to fruition. Domestically the Veterans Administration scandal along with the IRS targeting of organizations in opposition to Obama’s policies seem to have struck a nerve with the public but are characterized by Obama as phony scandals. Not withstanding the media’s ignoring the mounting evidence of criminal activity on the part of officials in the IRS and possible complicity of the Justice Department and the White House, Eric Holder refuses to appoint a Special Prosecutor to take charge of the investigation. Obama’s answer to every crisis or scandal is to appoint a team to study the situation and make recommendations as to how they can be avoided in the future. He is always caught by surprise and his lame excuse that he was not aware of the issue has worn thin to the point of his making a fool of himself with every speech he makes when attempting to show leadership to the public. 

Having been struck down by the Supreme Court numerous times for overstepping his authority when issuing Executive Orders, his response is to double down and side step the Constitution and the Congress whenever he thinks he can get away with it. Thus far he has rewritten the immigration law to allow minor children of illegals to avoid deportation sparking thousands of illegal children to cross our southern border believing they will be admitted to the United States without fear of being returned to their home country. He now threatens to take action on comprehensive immigration reform as Congress refused to take action pending securing of the border.  These actions along with rewriting of the Health care Law more than thirty times and selective enforcement of other existing laws would result in impeachment of any other President.  No where in any of his speeches deriding the Republicans does he say that his own Democrat party in the Senate, aided and abetted by Harry Reid, has stopped every single piece of legislation sent from the House by not allowing those votes to come to the Senate floor.

Obama’s foreign policy and his pension for leading from behind  have resulted in reconstituting fanatic elements of Al Qaeda  and the formation of ISAS in Syria and Iraq to the extent that the blood and treasure of this Nation over the past Decade have been wasted. Today his dithering as Commander-in-Chief has resulted in the loss of respect by our allies around the world. He can never admit that it is his policies and decisions that have led us to the turmoil we must face in the Mideast.   It is no longer a matter of if but when the next attack upon America will happen; but rest assured it will come as a complete surprise to Barack Obama and his Administration.

The only thing that has kept Barack Obama from being impeached is the historic nature of his being the first black man elected to the Presidency. His performance in office has proven that he was never qualified or equipped to be President of the United States. That said his position in history insulates him from impeachment and scrutiny for commission of high crimes and misdemeanors. As a result there is only one way “We the People” can restrain Obama from doing further damage to this nation in his quest to “Fundamentally Change America.” We must exercise our right to vote in the 2014 mid-term election and assure that Republicans retain the House of Representatives and gain sufficient seats in the Senate to control both houses in Congress.  Americans who are disgusted at the course our Country is taking cannot afford to stay home again rather than get out and vote! The balance of power must be restored in government and the Executive branch restrained in their march toward socialism if the Republic is to be preserved as intended by the Founding Fathers.

Barack Obama has succeeded in bringing the nation’s economy from the strongest producer in the world to that of a dependent  society resembling France. More people have left the work force and given up as contributors than jobs have been created in the private sector due directly to Obama’s policies on energy independence and his war against the Coal Industry in America. As energy costs continue to rise and income shrinks or remain stagnant this Administration doubles down on regulatory rules from the EPA and other agencies that are strangling investment and growth in this nations GDP.  The rising prices in food and energy are taking a terrible toll on the senior citizens and poor in the country. How long under Obama’s policies will it be before we run out of other people’s money to borrow to pay for his idea of Utopia? As we approach $20 trillion in the national debt it won’t take much before our creditors decide to foreclose on the United States of America.

Our last chance to change course for the nation rests in the decisions we make in the voting booth this coming November. Keep in mind we have no one to blame but ourselves for the government and representatives we elect. We deserve what we get.

Hillary Clinton’s Remarks Indicative of How Democrats Actually Feel About Women!

by Jayne D. Frank

Hillary Clinton is a woman hardened by being passed over for President and by the endless scandals caused by her husband’s philandering through their married life.  She is also shrewd and  manipulative; she has been able to use those “skills” to essentially make her way financially comfortable through her married life and career.  They have served her well from her time in the Governor’s mansion with her husband, in her Rose Law Firm, in the White House as First Lady and now as Secretary of State.  This is a woman who has spent years having people wait on her, do her bidding, run her  errands for her, and has not had to worry financially about her life at all.

So in this stagnant economy of high unemployment, broken families, children going hungry and husbands and wives stressed to the limit trying to pay their bills and keep their houses, what does Hillary Clinton have to say about women?  She just said she can’t stand whining” by women who are unhappy with the work and family choices they’ve made in life and complain that they have no options.”  With 23 million Americans currently without jobs and over 700,000 women having lost jobs under Obama, it is outrageous that Hillary Clinton would stoop to judge other women.  These women are in the middle class;  they are tired from having two jobs, of trying to make ends meet with over $4,000 less in their paychecks under Obama, where family net worth under the Democrats is 40% less than it was before.  These women often work two or three jobs, they clip coupons, organize ride-sharing because of the price of gasoline, and they worry every day about their homes, their children and their family’s future.

The middle class woman has sacrificed a great deal.  They don’t go to the hair salon so their kids can get their hair cut.  They haven’t bought themselves a new outfit for ages and often now shop at the local thrift shop for their family’s clothing.  Many families go without nutritious food because it is too expensive now, often sacrificing meat and better quality produce and vegetables in their family’s diets and substituting pasta meals or other dishes that can stretch two or three meals.  After all that they have to do during the day and evening, they often have no time for themselves at night and just have time to sleep and start all over again in the morning.  These women are plain tired of what Barack Obama and his Democrat administration have done to them and their families.  They have no options for now.  They take whatever work they can get or they can’t find work; there is no chance of bettering themselves because there is no “spare money” to learn another trade or pursue further education.  I am sure Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and all the rest of their administration does feel people are whining.  This is an Administration that has done nothing for women in the past 4 years and wants a chance to do nothing for another 4 more years.

These middle income women are the real heroes in my book.  Unlike women like Hillary Clinton who DO have “endless choices” as she says the “whiners”  have, middle class women don’t have maids, they don’t have people to run their errands and take care of all those “messy” things that Hillary Clinton doesn’t feel like doing every day.  They don’t have chefs coming in and preparing meals for them, and they don’t have an endless supply of money.  And they didn’t have nannies come in during their careers to take care of their only child so that they didn’t have to bother with it.  So if they want to whine about it, that is fine with me.  But those same women better wake up and realize that the only option they DO have is their vote on November 6 where they can elect a party that appreciates and respects women and their families and will make the next four years better for them.

Hillary Clinton said “money certainly helps and having that kind of financial “privilege” goes a long way.”  Being able to have a decent job and earn a decent paycheck isn’t a privilege and obviously the Democrats and Hillary Clinton are so targeted on redistribution of your money in this Country that they forget that our Founders guaranteed “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” to all – not just the few like Hillary Clinton.

Barack Obama – The Empty Suit!

by Richard H. Frank

At approximately 9:00 a.m. this morning news broadcasts were interrupted to announce that the President would be holding a news conference with a statement on the economy.  The announcement indicated Obama would address his actions to stimulate the economy at 10:15 a.m.  True to form, the President kept the White House Press Corps waiting for over 25 minutes which has been his trademark of disrespect an arrogance towards the media.

His statement lasted approximately 15 minutes with about 10 minutes directed towards the economic crisis in  Europe and only about three minutes talking about the situation in America.  His focus on remarks about the U.S. economy was centered around a new stimulus bill he sent to Congress in September 2011 which Congress has failed to act upon.

Obama contends that his legislation contained bi-partisan and broad support from the American people.  Such statements make me wonder what he is smoking if not cigarettes.  The only broad support from the American people is to stop spending and waste we saw with the $787 billion stimulus, and now Senator Tom Colburn’s disclosure that $70 billion of taxpayer money is sitting idle and not spent on the projects it was appropriated for.  Perhaps the Administration should recover these unspent funds and use them to reduce our deficit.

So now Obama blames Congress for not spending  more money to hire government sector teachers, and more local law enforcement and  union construction labor to sustain his imagined recovery.

The truth is, we are in Obama’s “third summer of no recovery” even though Obama takes credit for having created 4.5 million jobs over the past 27 months.  His real record is one of a net loss of jobs since taking office. He contends that his legislation will create thousands of new jobs, if only Congress would act.  He fails to recognize that his action in stopping the Keystone Pipeline, funded by the private sector and not taxpayer money, would have immediately created 20,000 construction jobs and up to 500,000 associated new jobs related to achieving energy independence for America.

He contended that the private sector is doing just fine but that Government and construction hiring remain in serious jeopardy.  In the next breath he admonished Europe for spending more money than they bring in.  Apparently, no one has told him under his policies we are spending $1.40 for every $1.00 in Government revenues received.  This is another example of our “empty suit” lecturing Europe and saying “Do as I say, not as I do!”.

Obama then opened the press conference up to address hand-picked questions and proceeded to take just 3 that were obviously planted to avoid his answering numerous questions related to security leaks in the White House, Fast and Furious, Eric Holder’s stonewalling Congress, and the devastating loss to Democrats in the Wisconsin Recall Election.

The Conference dragged on an on with Obama relating his accomplishments in 2009 and 2010 to save our economic future and the banking system.  Even my three dogs were put to sleep by his uninspiring delivery and answers to softball questions from selected media sources.

There was a time when Presidential news conference meant something.  Leaders like John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan were men of substance and principle.  Barak Obama is a man evolving from a “liberal progressive” promising hope and change into a “Socialist/Marxist” sworn to fundamentally change America as we know it.

Barack Obama, a man not qualified to be President , has through his own actions, proven that he is indeed an “empty suit.”
