Who Is Frank Hawkins? (UPDATED)

( I updated this post to include Frank Hawkins’ eight dishonorable mentions who “JUST” missed the list. They are shown at the bottom of the post.)

 

This is good course material for a political science class, or for all Americans.

Frank Hawkins is a former US Army intelligence officer, Associated Press foreign correspondent, international businessman, senior newspaper company executive, founder and owner of several marketing companies and published novelist. He is currently retired in North Carolina.

 

The 10 Most Destructive Americans of My 8 Decades

WRITTEN BY: FRANK HAWKINS

 

Image result for destructive america"

America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10 most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.

 

10) Mark Felt – Deputy director of the FBI, aka “Deep Throat” during the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior FBI officially directly interfering in America’s political affairs. Forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe.

9) Bill Ayers– Represents the deep and ongoing leftist ideological damage to our education system. An unrepentant American terrorist who evaded punishment, he devoted his career to radicalizing American education and pushing leftist causes. Ghost wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father.”

8) Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary Joe Kopechne to die in his car at Chappaquiddick. The real damage came after he avoided punishment for her death and became a major Democrat force in the US Senate, pushing through transformative liberal policies in health care and education.  The real damage was the 1965 Hart-Cellar immigration bill he pushed hard for that changed the quota system to increase the flow of third world people without skills into the US and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.

7) Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who began the politicalization of America’s news media with his infamous broadcast from Vietnam that described the Tet Offensive as a major victory for the Communists and significantly turned the gullible American public against the Vietnam War. In fact, the Tet offensive was a military disaster for the NVA and Viet Cong, later admitted by North Vietnamese military leaders. Decades later Cronkite admitted he got the story wrong. But it was too late.  The damage was done.

6) Bill and Hillary Clinton—It’s difficult to separate Team Clinton. Bill’s presidency was largely benign as he was a relative fiscal conservative who rode the remaining benefits of the Reagan era. But his sexual exploits badly stained the Oval Office and negatively affected America’s perception of the presidency. In exchange for financial support, he facilitated the transfer of sensitive military technology to the Chinese.  Hillary, a Saul Alinsky acolyte, is one of the most vicious politicians of my lifetime, covering up Bill’s sexual assaults by harassing and insulting the exploited women and peddling influence around the globe in exchange for funds for the corrupt Clinton Foundation. She signed off on the sale of 20% of the US uranium reserve to the Russians after Bill received a $500,000 speaking fee in Moscow and the foundation (which supported the Clinton’s regal lifestyle) received hundreds of millions of dollars from those who benefited from the deal.  Between them, they killed any honor that might have existed in the dark halls of DC.

5) Valerie Jarrett – The Rasputin of the Obama administration.  A Red Diaper baby, her father, maternal grandfather and father-in-law (Vernon Jarrett who was a close friend and ally of Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis) were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government. She has been in Obama’s ear for his entire political career pushing a strong anti-American, Islamist, anti-Israeli, socialist/communist, cling-to-power agenda.

4) Jimmy Carter  – Carter ignited modern day radical Islam by abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the main state sponsor and promoter of international Islamic terrorism.  When Islamists took over our embassy in Tehran, Carter was too weak to effectively respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.

3) Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the generals instead of automaker Robert McNamara. The ultimate result was: 1) 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands of American lives damaged; and 2) a war that badly divided America and created left wing groups that evaded the draft and eventually gained control of our education system.  Even worse, his so-called War on Poverty led to the destruction of American black families with a significant escalation of welfare and policies designed to keep poor families dependent on the government (and voting Democrat) for their well-being. He deliberately created a racial holocaust that is still burning today. A strong case could be made for putting him at the top of this list.

2) Barack Hussein Obama – Obama set up America for a final defeat and stealth conversion from a free market society to socialism/communism. As we get deeper into the Trump presidency, we learn more each day about how Obama politicized and compromised key government agencies, most prominently the FBI, the CIA and the IRS, thus thoroughly shaking the public’s confidence in the federal government to be fair and unbiased in its activities. He significantly set back race and other relations between Americans by stoking black grievances and pushing radical identity politics. Obama’s open support for the Iranian mullahs and his apologetic “lead from behind” foreign policy seriously weakened America abroad. His blatant attempt to interfere in Israel’s election trying to unseat Netanyahu is one of the most shameful things ever done by an American president.

1) John Kerry – Some readers will likely say Kerry does not deserve to be number one on this list. I have him here because I regard him as the most despicable American who ever lived.  After his three faked Purple Hearts during his cowardly service in Vietnam, he was able to leave the US Navy early. As a reserve naval officer and in clear violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris and met privately with the NVA and the Viet Cong. He returned to the United States parroting the Soviet party line about the war and testified before Congress comparing American soldiers to the hordes of Genghis Khan. It was a clear case of treason, giving aid and comfort to the enemy in a time of war. We got a second bite of the bitter Kerry apple when as Obama’s secretary of state, he fell into bed with the Iranian (“Death to America”) mullahs giving them the ultimate green light to develop nuclear weapons along with billions of dollars that further supported their terrorist activities. Only the heroic Swift Vets saved us from a Manchurian Candidate Kerry presidency. Ultimately we got Obama.

Dishonorable Mentions! (Just missed the list)

John Brennan – Obama’s CIA director who once voted for Communist Gus Hall for president. A key member of the Deep State who severely politicized the CIA. Called President Trump treasonous for meeting with the president of Russia.

Jane Fonda – movie actress who made the infamous trip to Vietnam during the war in support of the Communists. She represents hard left Hollywood that has done so much damage to our culture.

Jimmy Hendrix and Janice Joplin – Both revered entertainers helped usher in the prevailing drug culture and personally suffered the consequences. Karma’s a bitch.

Robert Johnson /BET – Helped popularize ho’s, bitches and pimps while making millions on great hits such as “Jigga my Nigga”, “Big Pimpin'”, “Niggas in Paris” and “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.” Many scholars within the African American community maintain that BET perpetuates and justifies racism by adopting the stereotypes held about African Americans, affecting the psyche of young viewers through the bombardment of negative images of African Americans. Who can disagree?

Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr./The New York Times – Once the gold standard of American journalism, the paper always had a liberal tilt and occasionally made bad mistakes. As the years have gone along, the paper has slid further and further left and today is virtually the primary propaganda arm of the increasingly radical Democrat Party. Still retains influence in Washington and New York.

George Soros – Jewish former Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary who as a self-made billionaire has poured hundreds of millions of dollars into left wing groups and causes. The damage he has caused is difficult to measure, but it’s certainly large. He has funded much of the effort to kill the Trump presidency.

Frank Marshall Davis – Anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying Soviet agent. Probable birth father and admitted primary mentor of young Barak Hussein Obama.

John McCain – Rhino republican. Sold out the American public and should be noted a democrat!

Chinese Wuhan CV-19 Humor

I hope they give us two weeks notice before sending us back out into the real world.  I think we’ll all need the time to become ourselves again.  And by “ourselves” I mean lose 10 pounds, cut our hair, and get used to not drinking at 9:00 a.m. 

New monthly budget:  Gas $0, Entertainment $0, Clothes $0, Groceries $2,799.

Breaking News:  Wearing a mask inside your home is now highly recommended.  Not so much to stop COVI D-19, but to stop eating.

When this quarantine is over, let’s not tell some people.

I stepped on my scale this morning.  It said: “Please practice social distancing.  Only one person at a time on the scale.”

It may take a village to raise a child, but I swear its going to take a vineyard to home school one.

You know those car commercials where there’s only vehicle on the road?  Doesn’t seem so unrealistic these days.

They may open things up next month — I’m staying in until July to see what happens to you all first. 

Day 56:  The garbage man placed an AA flyer on my recycling bin.

Appropriate analogy: “The curve is flattening, so we can start lifting restrictions now. Or could it be….. “The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now.”

Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask and ask for money.

I am home schooling. The first day I tried to get my kid transferred out of my class.

Putting a drink in each room of my house today and calling it a pub crawl.

Okay, so the schools are closed.  Do we drop the kids off at the teacher’s house?


– – – – –

I was in a long line at 7:45 am today at the grocery store that opened at 8:00 for seniors only.   A young man came from the parking lot and tried to cut in at the front of the line, but an old lady beat him back into the parking lot with her cane.

He returned and tried to cut in again, but an old man punched him in the gut, then kicked him to the ground and rolled him away. As he approached the line for the 3rd time he said, “If you people don’t let me unlock the door, none of you will ever get in to shop.”

Scarlett O’Hara Cat: HBO which is part of Warner, which is part of AT&T, banned Gone With The Wind.  AT&T also owns CNN-SUX.  They are going to bring it back with a disclaimer.  They should put a disclaimer on CNN-SUX–You have to be dysfunctional sexually to host one of our shows.

Homeland Security should have so many drones flying over the occupied section of Seattle that they think they are at a nude beach.  When they have everyone’s photo turn off the power and water.

Use what they used in Iraq to get the terrorist to surrender.  Play this, twenty-four ( 24 ) hours a day, at the decibels of a jet plane landing.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT—Antifa


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

ANTIFA

The Antifa movement is a conglomeration of left-wing autonomous militant anti-fascist groups in the United States. The principle feature of antifa groups is their use of direct action, with conflicts occurring both online and in real life. They engage in varied protest tactics, which include digital activism, property damage, physical violence, and harassment against those whom they identify as fascist, racist, or on the far-right. Activist involved in the movement tend to be anti-capitalist and subscribe to a range of ideologies, typically on the left. They include anarchists, socialist, and communists along with some liberals and social democrats. Their stated focus is on fighting far-right and white supremacist ideologies directly, rather than through electoral means.

Although various antifascist movements have existed in the United States since the beginning of fascism in the 1930s, the word fascism, adopted from German usage, only came into prominence as an umbrella term in English in 2017. The Anti-Defamation League makes a point that the label “antifa” should be limited to “those who proactively seek physical confrontations with their perceived fascist adversaries,” and not be misapplied to include all counter-protesters.

Many Americans first became aware of Antifa only in 2017, when some of its followers descended on Washington, D.C. to protest President Donald Trump’s inauguration. They broke store windows, set fire to a limousine, and caused more than $100,000 in property damage. But Antifa is much older and broader than a mere reactionary movement opposed to President Trump’s administration. It has grown in numbers and strength for decades, united only by its adherents’ commitment to shutting down anyone they disagree with by any means. Purporting to fight fascism – hence the name Antifa, short for “anti-fascism – the group broadly labels anyone it disagrees with as a fascist. Justified by this zeal, Antifa unleashes the violence we’ve seen rock communities, including Berkeley, Calif., and Portland Ore. and now recently, cities all across the nation, with the senseless death of George Floyd. This behavior is an unacceptable way to express disagreement, and we should not tolerate it in our communities.

One of the biggest challenges to containing the cancer that is Antifa is its amorphous, disconnected nature. Antifa is not a traditional organization. Antifa doesn’t stand for anything, only against whatever it decides to define as fascist. It does not have meetings, official members, or even leaders. It is made up of dozens, if not hundreds, of left-wing organizations, both at the local and national levels. Each group has its own goals and aspirations – some advocate for animal rights, environmental rights, and socialism. The groups come together behind a unifying black mask whenever there is a call to action, spread through word-of-mouth or social media. At that point, the groups abandon their ethos and become part of the mob-like collective that is Antifa. Antifa has two goals: Destroy political opposition, and silence dissenters in any way possible. Given their nebulous structure, curtailing Antifa is undoubtedly a challenge for authorities – but designating the group as a domestic terrorist organization, as President Trump has suggested, would be a good start that offers many benefits.

The name “Antifa” sounds good and the goal of “fighting fascism” is undoubtedly a draw to many well-intentioned, idealistic people, both young and old. However, it is an inherently anti-American movement and, as Americans, we cannot allow its fascist doctrine to continue to undermine our republic.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL

People are asking: “If they do away with the police, who would I call if someone broke into my house in the middle of the night?” In my case it would be the coroner.

SpaceX Demo-2 Launch

Explanation: Clouds are white but the sky is dark in this snapshot of Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. The dramatic daytime sky is partly due to the black and white photo captured with a digital camera at near-infrared wavelengths. Taken at 3:22 p.m. EDT Saturday May 30 the launch was pretty dramatic too as a Falcon 9 rocket lofted a Crew Dragon spacecrat towards low-Earth orbit. Astronauts Robert Behnken and Douglas Hurley were onboard, the first crew launched from a United States spaceport since the conclusion of the Space Shuttle Program in 2011. A few minutes after launch, the Falcon 9 first stage returned to land on Of Course I Still Love You (that’s an autonomous spaceport drone ship …) patiently waiting off the Florida coast. The two astronauts guided their craft to a successfull docking with the International Space Station’s Harmony module at 10:16 a.m. EDT Sunday May 31
