MEASURING THE HYPOCRISY IN D.C.

The double-standard is beyond belief. So is the hypocrisy in the relentless attacks on President Donald Trump from Day One of his election just a couple months ago. He may bluster sometimes, but in truth his only crime was getting elected.

     Start with the frenzy over the allegations that the Russians were involved in politicking for Trump in the last election, though there is no evidence to support that, as noted by the FBI Director and other Intelligence experts. None!  Left wing news pundits declare that Trump should be impeached. For what? Breathing? Hatred for the new president before he’s even had a chance to serve is beyond comprehension.

    Speaking of interfering with an election, did anyone in the left-wing media chastise Barack Obama for not only meddling, but spending American taxpayer money to support the opposition to Israeli’s Prime Minister Netanyahu in the 2015 election there?  Our government was clearly engaged in trying to skew that foreign election.  Numerous news reports cited the deal, which would then make Obama complicit. Anyone call for his impeachment? Any hateful references to Obama — by anyone?  Where is MSNBC, CNN, ABC and CBS?

SANCTUARY CITIES – SEEDING THE LANDSCAPE

How do I tell my kids and grandkids, that they should always obey the law, uhh, except when they don’t like the law?

     That begs the question: Why do our elected representatives on the left openly protect and approve of those who blatantly break our immigration laws?

     Whenever a president, governor or mayor takes office, they take an oath to faithfully preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, i.e., to follow the law. Fact is, hundreds of these officials know they will be breaking the law as they recite the pledge.

     With all the hoopla about illegal immigration, it is stunning to learn that the administrations of over three hundred cities and towns in this country have been breaking laws every day by declaring their venue as “sanctuary” meaning, law breakers are given immunity, de facto, from enforcement based solely on the political leanings. They are telling our kids, “We don’t like this law, so we give ourselves permission to violate.”

     Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel, for example, openly declared in November of 2016, that his city will always remain a sanctuary venue for law-breakers, the law be damned. Emanuel joins the mayors of New York, Los Angeles,

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: “THE BELKO EXPERIMENT” – 2

Are you a big fan of gratuitous gore and violence?

     Are you among those who think that the ubiquitous “F” word is essential in every scene, by every actor, in every sentence (almost), even when it has no relevance?

     Do you rate actors by how realistic they play out dying, killing, death and destruction?

     Do you enjoy watching vast pools of blood forming on floors and carpets strewn with dozens of dead bodies?

     Do you like dumb plots?

     If you said “Yes” to these questions, then do not miss seeing The Belko Experiment.

     In summary, the movie tells the story of a twisted social experiment where a group of 80 Americans are employed in a high-rise corporate office building in the middle of nowhere, Bogota, Colombia when, suddenly, all windows and doors are sealed locked on every floor.  A male voice from an intercom orders everyone to participate in a deadly game of kill or be killed. Essentially, people are required to kill a number of innocent people in order to save their own lives. Naturally, it all gets out of control and the murder mentality takes over, resulting in senseless carnage.

     By the end of the movie, the origins

A BETTER WAY TO LOOK AT SEX OFFENSES

(This Op-Ed – by yours truly —  appeared in the March 10th issue of Florida Today)

‘There must be a better way’ to look at sex offenses”  Marshall Frank

“Let’s be honest here:  Sex is condoned directly or by inference to kinds by the millions. Then the law plays the morality card when it’s easy to secure a conviction”

 

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), there are 843,260 registered sex offenders listed in the United States. Some will spend five, 10 or 40 years in prison, but in truth, when they get out and reenter society, offenders are doomed to a life sentence without bars.

I’m no bleeding heart. I put hundreds of criminals in jail for serious crimes in my 30-year career, including sex crimes. Anyone who commits a violent sex act against a child (or adult) should be duly punished. Those who have shown a proclivity for stalking or violating children should be restricted from contact with kids. No argument.

My concern is with the offenders who, in reality, have shown no real danger of predatory behavior, yet still fall under the broad brush of all of sex offenders, thereby subject

RACIAL INTIMIDATION WINS AT THE OSCARS

May I gloat?

     It’s about the 2017 Oscars, the winners and the nominees. In 2016, a year ago, Hollywood was put on notice that there would be hell to pay, because not one black person was nominated in any of the major award categories. Blacks, and others, were outraged. Many threatened to boycott the 2017 Academy Awards. Some actually did sit out the 2016 Awards because no blacks were included in the top twenty elite contenders.

     Intimidation pays off.

     Voila. This year, it’s no surprise that seven of the twenty top nominee contenders were, in fact, black. Not only that, Moonlight, a black directed, produced and staffed movie which was little-known, won Best Movie beating out the Golden Globe front runner, La La Land. Also, best Supporting Actor and Actress, each were won by blacks.

     I’m not saying these awards were not deserved. That’s not really the point. I didn’t see every movie in contention. What I am saying is, deserved or not, when the blacks in Hollywood raise hell, changes happen based solely on race. Sadly, the salient issue from this point on will be to ensure a proportionate quota of blacks are nominated. (Anyone ever wonder

HOLLYWOOD STARS FALL FROM PEDASTALS – FLORIDA TODAY OP-ED

Hollywood glamour fades in face of un-American actions

Marshall Frank, Community columnist 1:00 a.m. ET Feb. 24, 2017 (Pub. by Florida Today)

 

What is it about Hollywood celebrities that make them think their excrement smells like garden roses? Do they truly believe the whole world should love them as they love themselves?

Why should mere mortals like us pay attention to far-left slants from propagandists like Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn? Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep, Jane Fonda, Penn, Quentin Tarantino, Steven Spielberg and others are all great actors and directors. But their claim to fame is pretending to be other people and getting paid mega-millions. That’s it.

They don’t save lives. They don’t fight for our country. They don’t fix veterans issues or support cops who risk lives daily for them. Sure, they donate to charities for tax credits and pretend to be humanitarians. Very few would have the moxie to give up a first-class airline seat to an American soldier, as did Amy Adams.

They are, for the most part, beneficiaries of the capitalist system they claim to abhor. And God forbid their favorite presidential candidate loses. Their fame gives them power few others will ever have.

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: “PATRIOT’S DAY” – 9

Patriots Day” –  9

In a word: Gripping

     One of the best true-story epics I’ve seen in years. 

     This is all about the Boston Marathon bombing of April, 2013; the preludes, the murderous scenes, the panic, the suffering, the investigations, the apprehensions, the intimate stories of victims, cops and killers, and the aftermath, all woven together in a film people can digest and keep track of.

     Mark Wahlberg is the lead actor plying a Boston cop with personal problems of his own, always compelling, but the movie is not about the acting, it’s about the story. John Goodman, complete with 100 pound weight loss, plays the Boston Police Commissioner and Kevin Bacon plays the lead FBI agent in charge. They are all good. But so are the bit actors. Even better is the snippets about the sub-plots, the people who suffered, their families, their kids, the conflicts between law enforcement agencies, the perils of law enforcement when a simple cop is ambushed for no reason stripping his family of his love, the limbs lost by decent people and the stress imposed on cops in all agencies.

     Neither is the movie politically correct. The killers are portrayed as they were,
