Time To Understand: Accusations Are Not Convictions

December 15, 2017 by


By Frank Salvato ~ To say that the media is knee-jerk and irresponsible is to make the understatement of the millennium. To say that the American people are gullible to their knee-jerk is to speak a sad truth. On no other subject is this more relevant than the matter of sexual harassment claims. To be […]

The ‘Not So Much’ Hollywood Sex Scandals

November 14, 2017 by


By Frank Salvato ~ You cannot turn on a television or cable news show these days without hearing about another Hollywood celebrity claiming to have been sexually assaulted by someone with influence in show business. From influential producers to prominent actors to lesser knowns trying to make it to stardom, there appears to be a […]

‘Terrorism Knows No Color’

August 15, 2017 by


By Frank Salvato ~ The title is a quote from a Facebook post in reaction to the senseless and fatal attack that took place at a rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Saturday. Truer words have seldom been spoken. Frankly, the divisive lunacy masquerading as a push for tolerant “diversity” – now turning belligerent and violent in […]

Fifteen Years On I Wonder What The Falling Man Would Think

September 11, 2016 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Fifteen years on from the attacks of September 11, 2001, and Osama bin Laden in dead. This serves as a symbolic victory in the war against Islamofascism. But the fact of the matter is we are less safe; more vulnerable to an attack by Islamic jihadists than we were eight years […]

The Little Fascist That Could

March 14, 2016 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Tonight, as I watch protesters in the streets of Chicago squash the free speech rights of those they do not agree with I exist ashamed of my hometown. I have understood for years that Chicago had arrived at being the epicenter of Progressive intolerance, even more so than the grounds of […]

The Email Issue Goes Beyond Just Hillary Clinton

September 1, 2015 by


By Frank Salvato ~ As scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of unsecured email servers to access classified information during her time as US Secretary of State continues to unravel her presidential aspirations, a more comprehensive overview of the many email issues related to the Obama Administration presents a more sinister possibility. From the State […]

Contempt Of Congress By Any Other Name

March 26, 2015 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Initially I was going to start with the line, “It is stunning to think,” but then I remembered I was opining about the Obama Administration, of which I have come to expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to nefarious doings meant to advance his agenda. To be certain, all of […]

Americans Are Brave Enough to Say It, Why Not Their President?

January 13, 2015 by


By Frank Salvato ~ The contortions to which those in the Obama Administration will submit themselves in order to avoid calling Islamist terrorism just that would be comedic if the subject matter weren’t so deadly serious. Case in point comes to us in an announcement by the White House that a “summit on how to […]

Progressives And The Continued Urban Slaughter

April 25, 2014 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Over the Easter weekend, the City of Chicago experienced a rash of violence that eclipsed anything taking place on the battlefields of Afghanistan or in the uncivilized Taliban-held territories of Pakistan’s border region. 18 people were shot in several incidents, 13 of them dying from their wounds. This is nothing new […]

Re-Writing Benghazi For Political Purposes

January 3, 2014 by


By Frank Salvato ~ In typical Progressive fashion, the New York Times set itself to re-writing the events of al Qaeda’s 2012 attack on the US embassy compound in Benghazi, Libya; an attack that took the lives of four Americans, including a US ambassador. At any other point in the history of our country, the […]

Progressives, Dems Slap The Faces Of Benghazi Dead

September 24, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ In a move that illustrates why the overwhelming majority of American’s have grown to despise partisan politics – and come to be understandably offended by the actions of the Left, Progressives and Democrats on the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee executed – under the guise of protest – one of […]

We Need To Be Honest; Dispensing With The Spin

September 11, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ As we consider the anniversary of September 11th – now, both 2001 and 2012, it is important to consider some simple truths. These truths eluded our government and the nation in the early days after September 11th, 2001, because partisan politicians in Washington, DC, erected walls that kept our law enforcement […]

Dispensing With The ‘It’s The Law’ Rhetoric

August 13, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Over the past few months, Progressives and Democrats who favor the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) – both elected and not – have insisted that the new and expanding entitlement will go forward as planned because, after all, it is “the law of the land.” When I ponder this statement I find […]

Progressive Hypocrisy To Make You Sick

June 23, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ To say that there are items that present in the news each day that make me roll my eyes would be to under-state the fact in a dramatic way. But every now and again — and it is beginning to happen with more frequency, much to the detriment of the forces […]

The Crimes Of An Ideological Agenda

June 10, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ “Let us disappoint the men who are raising themselves upon the ruin of this Country.” — John Adams The number of scandals involving the encroachment of the Obama Administration into – and onto – the constitutional rights of American citizens is beyond stunning. And it is without question criminal in many […]

Benghazi: Progressives Rewrite History In Real Time

May 11, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ If there was ever a moment in time when the American people could collectively glean knowledge from a “teachable moment,” the Obama Administration’s handling of the al Qaeda-related attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya is surely one. From the moment the public became aware of what can only be […]

Conservative Media Elites, Progressives And The Blood Of Boston

April 29, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Well, bravo to the mainstream media – at least the Conservative mainstream media – for finally putting two-and-two together in understanding the role that political correctness plays in the ongoing conflict with violent jihadists and fundamentalist Islam. To say that they showed up “fashionably late” to the party is borderline sarcastic. […]

When Honesty Becomes Optional

March 3, 2013 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Back in February of 2012 – in what seems like a political eternity ago, I dared to broach the subject of honesty in American politics. Being equally disgruntled with the establishment Republicans, as was I (and still am) with the entirety of the Left side of the aisle, I provided instance […]

The Obama Foreign Policy: A Non Sequitur

September 16, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Up until September 11th, 2012, the Obama campaign truly believed that their candidate had the upper hand on the issue of foreign policy. In fact, during Mr. Obama’s nomination acceptance speech just last week, he portrayed Mr. Romney as “new to foreign policy.” But while it is true that Mr. Obama […]

The ‘Chains’ of Progressive Politics

August 19, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ The uproar over the “chains” comment made by Vice President Joe Biden continues, and rightly so. The comment Mr. Biden made while addressing a predominantly Black audience at a campaign rally in Danville, VA – a town on the border of swing states Virginia and North Carolina – was not only […]

Why ‘Progressive’ Obama Believes He’s Correct

April 8, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ The furor surrounding President Obama’s recent comments about the authority of the United States Supreme Court to overturn enacted legislation brought consternation from many a constitutional scholar as well as at least three federal appeals court judges from the Fifth Circuit, who demanded a clarification from Attorney General Eric Holder. To […]

Reaping the Rewards of a ‘Progressive’ America

April 1, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ As the nation directs its attention to the events taking place at the United States Supreme Court, specifically, the oral arguments surrounding the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, now may be a good time to evaluate some of the “progress” we have made, both as a country […]

When Did Honesty Become Optional?

February 19, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato ~ Throughout time politicians and their handlers have been prone to omitting unpleasant facts or manipulating them so as to mold issues to their advantage. This is the concept behind “spin”; a form of propagandizing that crafts an “alternative” interpretation of an issue, organization, person, event or campaign in order to sway […]

Raiding of the Treasury to Bribe the Irresponsible

January 16, 2012 by


By Frank Salvato: A little publicized political story, if played out to the satisfaction of California Democrats (read: Progressives), would not only set the stage for a politically motivated raid on the US Treasury, it would afford President Obama, his administration and political operatives plausible deniability in any “coincidental” benefit to Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign.
