The 24 -Hour News Cycle in America Contributes to Division and Hysteria.

By: Richard H. Frank

The competitive nature of the News Media in America today has created an atmosphere of mistrust and skepticism of almost everything being reported by journalists in their quest to be first. The hell with accuracy, verification of sources and the truth. Thus we now have the term “Fake News” attached to anything having to do with politics. The latest examples include reports of children being torn from the arms of their mothers as they seek asylum at our southern border. Where are the report about these alleged asylum seekers having uprooted their children and exposed them to the riggers and dangers of the journey from their country of origin to our border? Where are the stories of how these illegal aliens are schooled in the words to recite in order to be allowed to remain in the United States pending a judicial review of their claim for asylum? The big lie is that Zero Tolerance is to blame and that Trump is some sort of monster intent on punishing the innocent and not that the Obama policy of Catch and Release is paramount to open borders for anyone accompanied by a child.

Yet the Media is content to blame Trump instead of placing the responsibility on Congress to pass legislation to clean up the mess that they created in the first place. The truth is that reporting the truth does not increase ratings as does showing demonstrations across the country for the abolishment of ICE by ill-informed activists. For the Media further division of the citizenry and creating hysteria among activists and anarchists is just good for business.

Then there are the reports that North Korea is not living up to their promise to de-nuclearize as they promised in the June 12th summit with President Trump. It has been less than 30 days since the meeting took place and the Media is intent on diminishing any accomplishment that Trump may have achieved. Without any proof or evidence they are reporting how the North Koreans are increasing their facilities to further their nuclear research. Somehow they have forgotten that for the past 60+ years there has been virtually no dialogue between the North Koreans and the U.S. and that which did occur resulted in the American government bribing the North Korean regime, only to have them abandon their promises.

Somehow they forget to report that Donald Trump has given the North Korean regime nothing in return for their promise to de-nuclearize and has stated he will walk away and impose greater sanctions on them should they fail to live up to their commitment. But since all of the actions have not occurred in less than 30 days the Trump haters in the leftist media will seize upon anything to show Trump policy has failed.

And now there is the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Kennedy and the pending announcement for his replacement. The Democrats in Congress are in meltdown mode claiming that no replacement should be announced pending completion of the mid-term elections. Additionally they are claiming that any candidate currently on the list made public by Trump prior to his election in 2016 should be disqualified since they are all pro-life. Somehow they and the media are so invested in the Court decision on Roe vs Wade that they forget that Trump is looking for a Constitutionalist to fill the vacancy. An individual who represents someone Progressive Democrats will never vote to confirm. Abortion is a stain on this Nation and the Constitution. It is indeed “The Great American Holocaust” with thousands of unborn lives torn from the womb without any regard to their “right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Instead the liberals in Washington care more about the right to due process for illegal aliens’ invasion of our country. These persons are not refugees fleeing from civil unrest in their country of origin but are trying to subvert the law and avoid the process for legal immigration and citizenship in America.

Somehow the Media, both print and electronic, prefer to avoid telling the truth and instead continue to incite division and hysteria among the people in America.

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.
