Coalition Letter Opposing the Guard VA Benefits Act

Because it Endangers and Limits Our Veterans Ability to Get Help in Engaging the Complex and Challenging Bureaucracy

December 6, 2022

The Honorable Richard Blumenthal                                              The Honorable John Boozman

706 Hart Senate Office Building                                                    141 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC  20510                                                                   Washington, DC  20510

            

Dear Senators Blumenthal and Boozman,

We want to begin by thanking you for your tireless efforts on behalf of our veterans. These men and women have sacrificed much for our country, and we owe them the highest levels of care and support upon returning to civilian life. In this vein, we write to you regarding the GUARD VA Benefits Act. While we believe the best of intentions are at the heart of this legislation, as written, it will unintentionally deprive many veterans of private assistance in preparing disability benefits claims, overall hindering their ability to receive that which they are owed. 

While the Veterans Administration (VA) strives to provide the best possible care, it is widely acknowledged that they are plagued by a six-figure backlog that is actively endangering our veterans. Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) offer free VA claims preparation assistance, but many veterans have expressed difficulty navigating the system even with their help. While the intention of these VSOs is noble, it is clear that other pathways of assistance must be provided to our veterans. 

A number of reputable private companies have stepped in to fill a gap in the marketplace, wherein veterans are simply not equipped to secure the benefits they deserve on their own or with the help of volunteer VSO representatives. Some private companies offer a full suite of support, including screenings, benefit eligibility counseling, and assistance in compiling all necessary information for the disability claims submission. It is our belief that the best actors in this space are those who charge a fee only when they succeed in securing or increasing a veteran’s VA rating and only a portion of the veteran’s increase.

We understand that at the heart of the GUARD VA Benefits Act is a desire to protect veterans and ensure they receive the help they need. Unfortunately, your bill appears to criminalize reputable private companies, who are helping disabled veterans navigate a highly complex and challenging government bureaucracy, just as companies like TurboTax who are helping taxpayers with IRS and tax code complexities and challenges. Veterans deserve the same level of outside support, should they choose to use it.

We urge you to reexamine and correct these troubling aspects of the GUARD VA Benefits Act and to work in a holistic manner in the 118th Congress, including with private businesses, to have hearings and roundtables with stakeholders focused on reforming the accreditation process and increasing access to services for veterans. We must increase the VA’s capability to enforce laws against exploitation and punish truly bad actors. But we cannot label all for-profit companies “exploitative,” especially when many veterans can attest to the great support they have received when using their services.

Our veterans have given up so much to ensure the safety of our country and the protection of democratic ideals around the world. We, and the world, are better for their work and sacrifice. The least we can do is make sure they have timely, effective access to health care and support, which can be achieved by increasing the breadth of this legislation and bringing reputable companies into the fold.  Please reconsider this legislation, which runs counter to our shared, longstanding goal of fighting for our men and women in uniform.

Frontiers of Freedom Weekly Report – Dec. 2, 2022

         

          

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, Tom Donelson, and Dr. Larry Fedewa discuss the big issues:

(1) China’s vicious and brutal totalitarianism has been on display this week. Despite the intimidation, surveillance and censorship, brave Chinese citizens are out in the streets protesting their government’s abuses and their continued COVID lockdowns. Sadly, on display is also the shameful complicity of Joe Biden and Tim Cook, and there’s the hypocrisy of the Democrats supporting riots (not merely protests, but violent, destructive riots) by Antifa and BLM, but refusing to support the brave Chinese citizens who are standing up to a brutal, communist totalitarian regime.

(2) In totalitarian regimes, there is no freedom of speech. The government decides what information is safe for you to hear. There are Lefties in America who want this same program here. They claim — like one lunatic on CNN did — that free speech is “non-sense.” We have an administration that is “keeping an eye” on Elon Musk and Twitter; that has worked with social media and the press to silence dissenting views; that tried to start a government program to control information under the guise of reducing misinformation. That tells you pretty much all you need to know about the Biden Administration — they have evil, totalitarian instincts.

(3) The Biden Administration isn’t just anti-free speech, they are extremists to their core. We were told that Joe Biden was the moderate choice. But there is absolutely nothing moderate about this administration. It is widely extreme. They are avidly opposed to our constitutional rights as found in the Bill of Rights. They want taxpayers to pay for sex change operations for children. Biden’s nuclear waste guru is a non-binary, luggage stealing, whack-job. They want to force us into poverty and dependence. They deny elections whenever they lose, but if you question their attempts to stuff ballot boxes with illegal votes, you’re dangerous. They ramp up crime and murder wherever they are in charge. And they’ve created a national border that allows terrorists, criminals and poisonous fentanyl to flood across our border.

(4) We discuss a wide range of issues: (a) Sam Bankman-Fried and the FTX Ponzi scheme; (b) Dr. Fauci who is making numerous “Last Press” Appearances — the man will not go away; (c) how Biden’s agenda is putting America’s financial future at risk; (d) small businesses continue to struggle and it isn’t the pandemic, it is the Biden administration; (e) there is the hope that a slim Republican majority in the US House of Representatives could at least slow down some of the insanity and temper a bit some of the Democrat’s extremism.

(5) And each of our panelists will provide a “one more thing” topic.


Sen. Paul’s Amendment to the NDAA Is Both Necessary and Needed

It Promotes Justice and a Strong & Ready Military

       

CONTACT: George Landrith                                      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PHONE:  (703) 246-0110, Ext. 1302                               November 30, 2022

                  

Fairfax, VA  –  Frontiers of Freedom released the following statement by its president, George Landrith, regarding the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and Senator Rand Paul’s proposed amendment to prohibit discharges from the Armed Forces solely on grounds of their vaccination status and to reinstate those service members who have already been discharged based on their vaccination status: 

While national security spending is critically important, Sen. Rand Paul is 100% correct to oppose the NDAA unless the Senate votes to prohibit discharges from the Armed Forces solely because of vaccination status and reinstates service members already discharged. The reason for this is quite simple. Ever since the military mandated the COVID vaccine, recruitment has been cratering. Our military cannot be ready to defend the nation if it’s numbers are at historic lows. 

Likewise, if the morale of our war fighters is low, that also harms readiness and our ability to defend ourselves. So Sen. Paul is dead-on right to fix this problem to strengthen our military. It is also the just and right thing to do because kicking patriotic Americans out of the military for not taking a vaccine that provided very limited, if any discernible, benefit to the age and health demographics of the typical warfighter makes zero sense and lacks a rational and reasonable basis. Simply stated, it was the wrong thing to do and our current recruitment shortfalls are proof positive of that fact. 

It is time to correct this injustice, and it will also greatly benefit our ability to defend ourselves and recruit a serious force to deter our adversaries. This is pro-defense and pro-military and it is needed and necessary.

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, and Tom Donelson discuss the leading issues of the week: (1) World Economic Forum Foundation Chair Klaus Schwab says China is a role model; (2) Dr. Fauci admits he’s a bureaucrat, not a scientist or even a physician; (3) Alaska’s Ranked Choice Voting helps losers win and turns representative democracy on its head; (4) the lame stream media lies once again about acts of violence and tries to pin hate crimes on conservatives — it turns out that the Colorado club shooter was not a Conservaitve and instead is a non-binary guy who uses they/them pronouns; (5) inflation is surging despite Biden’s claim that it is under control and he’s fixed the problem the vast majority of Americas have had to cut back for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And we will each have a “one more thing” story to discuss!


Frontiers of Freedom Weekly Report – Nov. 18, 2022

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, Tom Donelson, and Dr. Larry Fedewa discuss the leading issues of the week: (1) the FTX cryptocurrency scandal that has Ukraine, Democrats and Sam Bankman-Fried at its epicenter. (2) the U.S. House of Representatives will flip and Nancy Pelosi will lose control of the gavel. It looks like Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnel will lead in the House and Senate respectively. (3) Russia’s war of conquest in Ukraine took an interesting turn — with missiles landing in Poland. What’s really going on?  And should the US continue to send pallets of cash to Ukraine or should we focus on actually helping them repel Putin’s forces? (4) What’s up with the Georgia run-off election? Will Biden’s automatic vote in incumbent Warnock win a full term to the US Senate or will Georgia decide it would like someone to represent Georgia — like Herschel Walker. And we will each have a “one more thing” story to discuss!


Frontiers of Freedom Weekly Report – November 11, 2022

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, Tom Donelson, and Dr. Larry Fedewa discuss the leading issues of the week: (1) the massive red wave didn’t quite materialize the way many thought it would, but it appears that the GOP will control the House and may also control the Senate — depending upon the outcomes of three seats — Georgia, Nevada, and Arizona. But why was the red wave not a big as expected?  (2) Election night was a good night for Florida Ron DeSantis — why was that?  (3) Some claim that Trump was a loser on election night despite the fact that he wasn’t on the ballot. While some of his endorsed candidates lost, some of the won too. So why is he being called a loser?  (4) What can we learn from New York where the GOP unseated some unexpected Democrats?  (5) What can we learn from Florida where the GOP did have an impressive red wave?  (6) With extremists like John Fetterman elected to the Senate, will the Democrats be able to moderate? Or will they continue to be the socialist party and the party of extremism?  (7) How can Biden hope to moderate and work with Republicans when he spent the last six months fomenting violence against conservatives and calling them fascists and existential threats to our republic. And we will each have a “one more thing” story to discuss!

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, Tom Donelson, and Dr. Larry Fedewa discuss the leading issues of the week: (i) should we be allowing China to buy American high tech chip companies? (ii) Joe Biden gave his second incendiary campaign speech masquerading as a presidential address. What the heck is going on? (iii) Joe Biden has been caught telling obvious lies — in many cases repeatedly. Is he a pathological or compulsive liar? (iv) What are the midterm elections looking like? How many seats do the Republicans win in the House? And can they win the majority in the Senate? And what are the issues driving this election? (v) The Left is demanding a COVID “amnesty” in an attempt to avoid accountability for the numerous abuses, lies, and illegalities of the past two years. Should they get a pass and escape accountability for what they did to America? And we will each have a “one more thing” story to discuss!

Frontiers of Freedom Weekly Report – October 28, 2022

George Landrith, Dr. Joe Mangiacotti, Tom Donelson, and Dr. Larry Fedewa discuss the leading issues of the week: The debates and how they went and why the Democrats are reluctant to debate or wanted only one and wanted it very late in the process. What the Fetterman and Dr. debate meant. Extremist Gov. Hochul vs. Rep. Zeldin debate. Extremist Gov. Whitmer vs. Tudor Dixon. And Extremist Tina Kotek vs. Christine Drazan. Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter and what it means for free speech and free and robust debate of ideas. Joe Biden’s bad habit of lying about everything from the price of gasoline, inflation, the state of the economy and the border, just to name a few. Why does he lie? And why doesn’t the media seem to care? Chuck Schumer admits that Hershel Walker is beating Warnock in Georgia! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance – so stay vigilant my friends!

On The Road To An Agonizing Decline: The 20th Pageantry of the Chinese Communist Party

Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

The conclusion of the just ended 20th Congress of the Chinese Communist Party is that on July 23, 1921 established organization has irreversibly outlived its usefulness.  The central proof of this statement is President Xi Jinping’s report that was abound with all the old banalities of previous speeches delivered in blatant disregard for existing realities.  Accordingly, heaping only praises on his questionable achievements, while concealing the abysmal condition of the Chinese economy, the rising discontent of the people with the tyrannical actions of the authorities, the manifest hopelessness of the future for the young and the middle-aged, President Xi indirectly acknowledged the deepening chasm between the Party and the state, as well as the yawning gap between the privileged Party bureaucracy and the people.  In view of all these challenges, his fundamental question should have been how to assure the stability and future growth of his antediluvian tyranny.  His answer that he gave in his report was to obey the Party with one’s heart and mind by practicing blind loyalty to him personally.  In arriving at such an exalted rank, one only needs to study his thoughts and Chinese history pursuant to his interpretation, in order to accept and adore everything in tyrannical China.  

Thus, President Xi at the ripe age of 69, reached the state of Shakespeare’s aging King Lear who wanted nothing but to be loved by his three daughters.  Comparably, President Xi’ s chief concern is his colleagues and his subjects’ lack of sufficient appreciation.  Following a barrage of words, such as “security,” “military readiness,” “struggle,” “high winds,” “choppy waters,” “dangerous storms,” he never mentioned political reforms.  His solution for the mounting domestic and international challenges is “self-reform,” which entails firm ideological adherence and unconditional loyalty to himself.  Clearly, President Xi is full of himself.  For this reason alone, people across the globe cannot trust him.  

For the United States of America, the European Union and the rest of the world it is time to sober up and be extremely pessimistic about the future of the People’s Republic of China, both internally as well as externally.  During his decade long tenure, President Xi’s economic policies oscillated between sheer incompetence, sticking to badly thought out half-baked ideas, and politically driven compromises.  While initially he encouraged reformers to tinker with free market ideas, following the emergence of COVID-19 epidemic, he panicked and rushed head on to push incoherent and antithetical economic designs.  The crackdown on nongovernmental conglomerates, successful technology firms, banks, real estate firms, etc., was exacerbated by politically motivated promotion of the meaningless slogan of “common prosperity,” the “vision of national greatness,” and the intensification of relentless anti-corruption campaigns.  

Domestically, the dumbing down of the Chinese people reached a new peak.  President Xi’s untiring exhortations to fill the contents of books, movies, theater pieces with “positive energy” and “Chinese Socialist Characteristics,” made Chinese literature as well as the media a laughingstock of Asia.  A typical example of such intellectual garbage is the story of a north-eastern transfer student by the name of Wang Hu of the city of Shenyang.  Mixing with students from Hong-Kong, Macau, Taiwan and even Thailand, Wang Hu has to fight the deviant ideas of his fellow students until they become convinced that the right path to follow is President Xi’s thoughts about the inevitable superiority of the Han race.  In addition to resurrecting the ever present Chinese racism, the “North-Eastern Transfer Student” patriotic saga also declares that everything President Xi determines is indisputable “Chinese territory.”

President Xi’s fantasy of race-based isolationist pan-Chinese unity is present in his foreign policy approach.  His foreign policy speeches, including his report to the Party Congress, reveal a bumbling tactician of imperial power designs.  His repeated criticism of “American hegemony” and Western interference in his country’s illegal expansion in the Pacific and elsewhere, present a man who is not a strategist and a statesman.  Aspiring to legitimize his claim to Chinese world hegemony, he misuses the past to project China’s global future, while enveloping the uncertainties of the present into the foggy ideas of false realities, elaborate deceptions and outright lies.  

In this context, the danger is real.  Internationally, President Xi displays the same character flaws that he demonstrates in his domestic dealings with his unfortunate Chinese subjects.  The 20th Chinese Communist Party Congress is by no means merely a Chinese affair.  The world in general must be made aware of the historical barbarism of Chinese culture.  Unquestionably, President Xi has declared war on his colleagues and the entire Chinese people.  Equally, he has stated his intention to challenge, if needed militarily, the status quo throughout the world.  For all these, he must be confronted decisively.  Therefore, viewing from this perspective, his triumphant report is more a downbeat oratory than a constructive political map for the People’s Republic of China.  The world will have to deal with this Chinese tyrant for the next five years whose ambitions have always exceeded his and his country’s real potential.  


The Russian Prisoner Of War

By Dr. Miklos K. Radvanyi

Today again, for a multitude of global and local reasons, the entire world appears to be in a state of permanent revolt against sanity.  Concurrently, all of the most substantial horrors of history have been caused by the violent prosecution of untruthful or even fallacious realities.  However, these unreal, improbable and cult-like political, economic, cultural as well as social concoctions have always been capable of destroying themselves when they have reached a point of no return.  Most importantly, peace and stability in the world could only have been accomplished by states that have been governed by lawfully elected governments not subject to dictatorship, autocracy, or tyranny.  When individuals or a mass of people have accepted lies as truths and have decided to blindly follow megalomaniac demagogues with unbridled lust for power, they and the world at large have always been transformed into multiple mental asylums and genocidal cemeteries.  

Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin, the tyrant de jour of the newly minted Russian Federation, who appears to be more a destroyer of a discombobulated and befuddled multi-ethnic state than its constructive architect, which is barely civilized and scarcely part of the European continent, has decided from the second decade of the 21th century to take a decisive role in European affairs and thus bolster his country’s fading significance across the globe.  Having been a born narcissist with a sick temperament, he convinced himself that he was already capable of creating a sufficient number of useful idiots inside and outside Russia to make them passive observers of his illegal annexation of the sovereign state of Ukraine.  Thus, like Adolf Hitler in 1938, Putin uses a racist argument under the guise of wanting to unite all Russians into “Mother Russia” for territorial expansion. Equally, as Hitler in 1938, he counted on Western appeasement, based on past historical circumstances and randomly selected personal factors.  Finally, invested with almost unlimited powers, he decided to exercise them simultaneously for overwhelming effects.  Consequently, his Blitzkrieg plan appeared to be a copious conception of World War II history, the strategic concept of a self declared military genius.  In reality, his so-called grand design has turned into a nightmare of humiliating political and military defeats.

Thus, what started on February 24, 2022, as relatively modest “special military operations” is now a fully fledged war between Russia and Ukraine.  To the tragic detriment of Russia, Putin, in his escalating mental frenzy, failed to study three important quotes relating to provoking, conducting and closing a war.  In 1916, in his posthumously published “The Mysterious Stranger,” Mark Twain opined:  “There has never been a just (war), never an honorable one – on the part of the instigator of the war.”  Justifying his unlawful invasion of Ukraine, he first cited NATO’s alleged expansionism, claiming the right of self-defense.  Then, accused Ukraine of committing relentless genocide against its Russian minority, and called for “denazification” of the country.  Attempting to further underpin the rightness of Russia’s large scale invasion, he reached back to the well-worn Soviet argument about the 10th century Kievan Rus as the joint foundation of Russia, Ukraine and Belorussia.  Yet, paradoxically, he pointed to Crimea as an exclusively Russian territory, which legally returned in 2014 to the “Russian Harbor” and the “Russian World” (Russkiy Mir).  Lastly, Putin turned his attention to the Roman Shukhevich and Stepan Bandera led war of liberation against the Soviet Union and the 2014 Maidan revolution.  Claiming that Viktor Yanukovich, the rightful president, was deposed by a neo-Nazi coup d’etat, inspired by the ideology of Shekhevich and Bandera, he maquaraded as the Stalin-like liberator of Ukraine, Europe and, ultimately, the world.

The second wisdom about war that Putin ignored was defined by Sun Tzu’s “Art of War”:  “If you know the enemy and yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.  If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.  If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”  Secluded in his ivory tower in the Kremlin, Putin has had no actual knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of his military.  On the other hand, he woefully underestimated Ukrainian nationalism and the almost universal resolve of the Ukrainian people to remain an independent nation.  Moreover, he misjudged the European Union’s determination to unite against his lying narrative about his unlawful invasion of a member state of the United Nations.  Finally, he did not count on the unanimous diplomatic rejection of his illegal military adventure across the globe.

Thirdly, he did not pay attention to H.G. Wells’s sage words:  “If we don’t end war, war will end us.”  Unwisely, Putin still does not have a plan B or C on how to end his lawless invasion.  President Putin is in a deep state of a quandary.  It is politically impossible for him to return to the status quo ante without losing power, yet there are great dangers in the miseries he has inflicted on Russia, Ukraine, Europe and beyond.

The world is passing through a dangerous crisis.  It has been put in this untenable position by a reckless and unconscionable gambler.  The world should not be afraid of calling President Putin’s bluff.  The alternative is more of the same from the current Russian tyrant.  Under such circumstances, hatred and falsified rules and principles would surely lead to chaos and the ultimate destruction of the human existence on earth.    


‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Teaches an Important Lesson for our National Security

By George LandrithReal Clear Politics

It’s a rare occasion when a Hollywood movie teaches us something about a serious topic like national security. But in Top Gun: Maverick Hollywood actually got some important things right.

First, Top Gun illustrated the need to be prepared and have the necessary tools for our war fighters to defend our nation. Second, it showed that the F-18 Super Hornet is a highly capable strategic fighter. We must ensure that our war fighters have superior tools to defend our nation. The F-18 Super Hornet is just such a tool. And there are new improvements that will make the new F-18 Super Hornet even more impressive!

The next generation or block of the upgraded F-18 Super Hornet has signature improvements to reduce its radar cross section. It has an air frame that will last almost double the operation time as previous versions. It has the most advanced network connectivity and data link systems available — allowing pilots to connect to a plethora of information about what risks are around them and what lies over the horizon. The next generation F-18 has an expanded range and the ability to counter stealth technologies. And its cockpit systems gives the pilot an unprecedented level situational awareness. 

The F-18 isn’t simply a time-tested and proven fighter. The new upgraded F-18 has incorporated some of the most advanced technologies — even more rapidly in some cases than our latest high-tech joint strike fighter, the F-35. 

We live in a dangerous world. For years, the risk was widely perceived as coming primarily from terrorists. While terrorism will be an ongoing security issue and cannot be ignored, it is not the greatest threat we face. China has been preparing for a confrontation with the United States for the past 30 or more years. Putin’s Russia is threatening the world with nuclear war. Iran is on the precipice of developing its own nuclear weapons. And North Korea is once again testing nuclear weapons that can strike the U.S.

Because we were focused primarily on defeating terrorism, we have made some budgeting decisions that have left us at risk from other threats — like communist China. We have for example, a shortage of strike fighters for our aircraft carriers. If we needed our aircraft carriers to deploy, we would have a number of them that wouldn’t have enough planes to help defend America. This is a serious problem and the risks are growing. 

It is critical that we not be vulnerable, or even appear so. For example, recent missteps in Afghanistan may well have signaled a weakness to Putin and emboldened him to launch another attack on Ukraine — spreading fears of another world war and even nuclear war. 

Thus, if we desire to convince the Chinese communist regime that threatening the US is not in their interests, we must be, and appear, strong. While Taiwan may be their first testing ground, it will not end there. China’s totalitarian leadership has been clear that they intend to confront and defeat the US and dominate the world. 

While it makes perfect sense to develop next generation technology so that we are always, even in the future, providing our war fighters with the most capable tools to defend our nation, it is unwise to fund future technologies by reducing our current ability to defend ourselves.

We must both prepare for the future and be prepared today. And that is why the new, upgraded F-18 Super Hornet is such an important tool. It is highly capable and brings to bear so much new technology that it will be an impressive part of our national security arsenal for years to come — while keeping procurement and operation costs low so that the future isn’t neglected. 

Not only do we get an amazingly advanced tactical fighter, we get it here and now and at a relatively low cost. So our war fighters win, the tax payers win, and our adversaries lose. That’s exactly what we should be doing. In the words of Ronald Reagan, “We win, they lose!” 

It may take Congress to intervene to be sure that we are closing the gap on the Navy’s strike fighter shortfall. To be blunt, slowly chipping away at the shortage is a dangerous risk. If China sees us fixing the problem over a decade or so, they may well accelerate their aggressive plans so that they can strike before we fix the chinks in our armor. 

Additionally, there is reason to question whether the current Pentagon leadership is capable of the decision-making needed to successfully navigate the next decade with the increased dangers coming from China and their unholy alliance with Russia, North Korea and Iran. Let’s be honest, the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan didn’t need to turn out that way. It would have taken only a little bit of strategic thinking and planning to ensure that we could withdraw on our terms, keeping our soldiers and allies safe.

It is time for Congress to use its budget power to ensure that our strike fighter shortage is resolved ASAP. Our enemies are dedicated to exploiting any weakness in our defenses. We must rapidly close the significant fighter shortfall that hamstrings our carrier fleet. Failure to act would be both irresponsible and dangerous and our adversaries would surely cheer. Let’s not give China’s totalitarian leaders anything to cheer about.

PAC Expands “Liberal Extremist” Attack to New Hampshire’s Extremist Maggie Hassan 

     

After Shaking up Arizona Senate Race (GOP Senate candidate has picked up “extremist” theme in PAC’s TV spots), Frontiers of Freedom Action expands its effort to hold New Hampshire’s extremist Senator Maggie Hassan to account for her betrayal of New Hampshire voters.

   

Two Minute Version

       

NEW HAMPSHIRE’S OWN SENATOR VOTED TO PERMIT FEDERAL BUREAUCRATS TO END THE STATE’S GREATEST TRADITION — FIRST-IN-THE-NATION PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY.

Hassan was so afraid of a left-wing primary challenge she even went along with empowering Department of Justice bureaucrats to end New Hampshire’s greatest tradition.” — George Landrith President, Frontiers of Freedom

HASSAN’S “CORRUPT BARGAIN WITH LEFT WING EXTREMISTS” MADE HER “KEY ENABLER” WHO VOTED 96% WITH BIDEN.    (“EXTREMIST” SENATE VOTING RECORD.)

Screen shows “CORRUPT BARGAIN WITH LEFT WING EXTREMISTS” EMBLAZONED ACROSS PHOTO OF RADICAL-LEFT NEW YORK REPRESENTATIVE OCASIO-CORTEZ AND 3 OTHER FAR- LEFT MEMBERS OF “THE SQUAD”)

      


      

ASKS NEW HAMPSHIRE MEDIA TO “STAND UP TO CORRUPT NATIONAL MEDIA” AND END HASSAN’S ‘FREE RIDE’

      

       

“The 50th Senator” who in a closely divided Senate who could easily have “stopped Biden debacles like the border crisis” the spot show vivid footage of illegal border crossings.  Hits Hassan for supporting Biden’s “Student loan giveaway.”

“SCRIPTED LINES” AND “WHOLE CAMPAIGN” IS BEING RUN FROM WASHINGTON BY DC LIBERAL CONSULTANTS AND FINANCED BY FAR-LEFT DARK MONEY

         

MAKE HASSAN ANSWER FOR WHAT SHE HAD DONE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE & TO AMERICA:

It is incredible she isn’t even being asked about her far-left voting record and especially her votes to endanger the presidential primary or about who is really running her campaign?” — Landrith

“Everything she says and every TV spot she runs is out of the DC consultants’ playbook — Who ‘s running her campaign?” — Landrith

“The extreme left has created all the problems that our nation is now facing — the border crisis, the murder and violent crime crisis, economic stagnation, runaway inflation, the fentanyl crisis, failure in Afghanistan, and an emboldened Russia, Iran, and China. All of this can be laid at Maggie Hassan’s feet. In a 50-50 Senate, Hassan could have stopped the insanity at any point, but she didn’t even try. Not once. As a result, New Hampshire and Americans are suffering from runaway inflation making the average family about $7,000 poorer than just 18 months ago. We also face a stagnant economy in recession — something Hassan and her allies have lied about constantly. New Hampshire deserves a Senator who will represent the people, not the extremist special interests. Maggie Hassan has consistently proven that she is not up to the job! It is time for a new direction and a new senator.” — Landrith

     

HASSAN’S REPUBLICAN OPPONENT – GENERAL DONALD BOLDUC

         

“General Bolduc is credible and likable. He’s one of those soldiers who has become a great candidate. He has proven that he will take on the extremist elements and the special interests in Washington. General Bolduc will help make Washington focus on what matters to New Hampshire’s citizens — a strong economy, a government that promotes and protects freedom and opportunity for all, and a nation that is strong in the face of increasing threats from abroad.” — Landrith

But he must use “the ‘e’ word” because the “extremist” charge really cracks the code against Democrats like Hassan for the simple reason it’s the truth and the truth actually works in politics.  Her voting record shows she cared more about the approval of the media and the left wingers who threatened her with a primary than that of her New Hampshire constituents. She can’t claim to be a moderate.” — Landrith

           

Spot also shows “news stories” repeating Hassan and Democratic party talking points.

       

     

One Minute Version

       

We think the New Hampshire media wants to be fair, but they can’t just repeat Democrat talking points. They need to give General Bolduc a hearing and ask Hassan some tough questions like those in our TV spot.” — Landrith

SPOT SAYS FOR YEARS HASSAN “NEVER HAD TO DENOUNCE” EXTREMISTS WHO WANT TO DEFUND THE POLICE (until campaign trail) OR THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY’S “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros funding lawless prosecutors: to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

“Maggie Hassan made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against her if she pushed far-left positions that have done so much harm to New Hampshire.

 “Why did she let her fear of a primary make her cave into the left-wing extremist “squad’?

How can she say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one?

HASSAN VOTED AGAINST HER CONSTITUENTS

“Why did Maggie Hassan go to the big city and forget the people who sent her there.”

LONG-FORMAT, STORY-TELLING AD

These are not 30-second attack ads that try to manipulate people, but heavily informative narrative ads that work particularly well with Independents, women, and young people who appreciate being given context and a story that put a larger perspective around the issues.” Landrith

     

 Landrith explained the 2-minute nightly news spot <Link> is followed by a 1-minute “chaser” <Link> that summarizes what the viewer has just seen.

       

“TEMPLATE” AD IS DESCRIBED AS “GREATEST AD IN HISTORY OF CAMPAIGNS”


One conservative website called an earlier version of the spot (directed against Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer) “The greatest ad in the history of campaign ads” and said “Every MAGA candidate should imitate its format.”

Three weeks of the ad in the Arizona TV market recently led to the adoption of its theme by GOP Senate candidate Blake Masters.

 WHY THE “EXTREMIST” CHARGE IS KEY

The reason Joe Biden and Democrats are trying to use the ‘extremist’ charge against Republicans is they realize it is their own biggest vulnerability. But the truth is clear – Democrats are the real extremists today.” — Landrith

SPOT SPELLS OUT HASSAN AS BIDEN’S AND SCHUMER’S “CHIEF ENABLER”

     HUGE SPENDING BILLS CAUSING SHATTERING INFLATION AND RECESSION.

     SHUT DOWN PIPELINES, DROVE UP GAS PRICES

     CAUSED FOOD SHORTAGES EVEN BABY FORMULA

THE EXTREMIST LEFT WILL DESTROY –

     THE SUPREME COURT

     THE SACRED SECRET BALLOT (No voter ID, unlimited vote harvesting and mail-ins & DC bureaucrats’ takeover of elections)

      CITIZENSHIP (Open borders)

      US SENATE (Add new states, no filibuster)

      ELECTORAL COLLEGE (Elections decided by a few counties in a few states)

     IMPOSE ANTI-CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS TEST FOR FEDERAL OFFICE

About Hassan’s support for Schumer assault on democratic institutions:

The GOP has never gotten across to the people how those bills would have destroyed the secret ballot, put Department of Justice bureaucrats in charge of our elections, abolished citizenship rights, packed the Supreme Court into irrelevance, radically changed the U.S. Senate, and made a few states the only thing that mattered in presidential elections by abolishing the Electoral College,” said Landrith.

ACCUSES HASSAN OF DESTROYING ELECTION INTEGRITY BECAUSE SHE BACKED BIDEN-SCHUMER

She voted for a federal takeover of elections that would corrupt the secret ballot and completely reduce New Hampshire’s historic role in presidential elections.” — Landrith

 SPOT DESCRIBES “PEOPLE’S FURY” AGAINST
 MEDIA AS AMERICA’S “MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS

The Mainstream Media has COVERED UP: 1)  China virus leak, 2) Hunter Biden laptop scandal, 3) illegal wrongdoing by Clinton and Biden, 4) FBI harassment of political dissenters,  5) never apologized for years of its Russian collusion hoax,  6) promoted  smears and civil rights violations against conservatives, 7) phony impeachments and show trials, 8) covered up Biden’s ill health and incompetence by letting him run from basement.


Frontiers of Freedom Action Super PAC TV Spot: ASKS ARIZONA MEDIA TO “STAND UP TO CORRUPT NATIONAL MEDIA”

NEWS RELEASE

“Cracking the code against Senate Democrats like Arizona’s Mark Kelly” PAC hopes “all Republicans will steal this ad.”

— “Doubling down in Phoenix” with a long format 2-minute ad that now has a 1-minute “chaser” on “Biden’s key enabler.”  VIEW SPOT

— One “screen” in spot accusing Kelly of “corrupt bargain” drawing heavy attention and donations.

WASHINGTON D.C. — Announcing a new wave of TV ads against endangered Democrat Senator Mark Kelly, SUPER PAC President George Landrith says his group, Frontiers of Freedom Action, is doubling its broadcast buy (nightly and morning news) for a 2-minute spot asking Arizona media to stand up to a “corrupt national media” by making Kelly answer charges he is “liberal extremist and has the voting record to prove it.”

(For more information, contact PAC President George Landrith at 703-901-5464)

One ‘screen’ in particular in the TV spot is drawing heavy attention and donor response Landrith says

  —  a photo of radical-left New York Representative Ocasio-Cortez and 3 other Representatives who make a far-left congressional group the media dubbed “The Squad” with the headline emblazoned across it — ‘CORRUPT BARGAIN” as the ad’s voice-over charges:

    “Mark Kelly made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against him if he pushed far-left positions”

    Accusing Kelly of “going to the big city and forgetting the people who sent him there” the ad asks Arizona press and network affiliates to end Kelly’s “free ride” and make him respond to questions like

   “Why did he let his fear of a primary make him cave into the left-wing extremist “squad’?”

  “How can he say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one?

WHY IT CRACKS THE CODE

“Kelly and all other Senate Democrats were so terrified that Ocasio Cortez and her left-wing billionaire allies would run primary campaigns against them they voted right down the extremist line.

“The reason this cracks the code is that many people find it hard to believe that their home state senator or local representative could really be so left wing but once they get an explanation for why it happened they are willing to vote against the Dems. Polling shows that even if they like their Senators they will vote against them if they voted for Biden’s and the Democrats’ agenda.”

“THIS SENATE RACE IS NOT A PERSONALITY CONTEST. KELLY’S OPPONENT IS A GREAT CANDIDATE BUT EVEN IF HE WEREN’T THE ISSUE IS KELLY’S LEFT WING EXTREMIST VOTING IN THE SENATE” Landrith said.

THE NEW 1-MINUTE “CHASER”

One conservative website called an earlier version of the spot (directed against Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer) “The greatest ad in the history of campaign ads” and said “Every MAGA candidate should imitate its format.”

Landrith explained, however, a 1-minute “chaser” (VIEW SPOT) now follows the 2-minute spot that summarizes what the viewer has just seen. (A 3-minute web version is also available:  VIEW SPOT). The ads began on Sunday morning and will run on the nightly and morning news through the week.

“These are not 30-second attack ads that try to manipulate people, but heavily informative narrative ads that ask Mark Kelly when he will reject extremist liberal views and plans,” Landrith said.

“BIDEN ENABLER”

 In addition to saying Kelly’s “free ride” from the national media means he never has to disown left-wing extremist groups that support him, the spot also spends much of its time charging that Kelly was a key “Biden enabler.” Accusing him of being “the 50th Senator” in a closely divided Senate who could easily have stopped Biden debacles like the border crisis, the spot show vivid footage of illegal border crossings.

WHY THE “EXTREMIST” CHARGE IS KEY

“The reason Joe Biden and Democrats are trying to use the ‘extremist’ charge against Republicans is they realize it is their own biggest vulnerability.”

“Mark Kelly is perfect example of why a Red Wave is coming in states like Arizona” the SUPERPAC PRESIDENT SAYS. “He wants to run as a moderate but like every Senate Democrat he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

SPOT CHARGES KELLY’S “FREE RIDE” FROM NATIONAL MEDIA MEANS HE HAS “NEVER HAD TO DENOUNCE” EXTREMISTS WHO WANT TO DEFUND THE POLICE OR DEMOCRATS “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros, to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

SPOT WANTS TO “Make The Media The 2022 Issue”

In calling national media “the most powerful and corrupt institutions in America” seeking to “smear” GOP candidates and protect their own “chosen candidates,” the SPOT asks voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who are “corrupting American journalism” and give them a “miserable election night” by asking Kelly for answers

“Get back at those who have corrupted journalism and seek to crush dissent and smear Kelly’s opponent.”

Spot cites MEDIA AS AMERICA’S MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS COVERED UP 1) China virus leak, 2) Hunter Biden laptop scandal, 3) illegal wrongdoing by Clinton and Biden, 4) FBI harassment of political dissenters, 5) never apologized for two years of its Russian collusion hoax, 6) promoted smears and civil rights violations against conservatives, 7)phony impeachments and show trials.8)covered up Biden’s ill health and incompetence by letting him run from basement.

Amac: PAC Urges Arizona Press to “Stand Up to Corrupt National Media” Over “Extremist” Mark Kelly

By Seamus Brennan

In a two-minute broadcast TV advertisement, a conservative Super PAC is asking the Arizona press to “stand up” to the national media and make “liberal extremist” Senator Mark Kelly answer for his “corrupt bargain” with left-wing radicals in the Democratic Party. The ad also asks Arizona voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who represent “the most corrupt institutions in America.”

In the TV spot and an extended three-minute online version of the ad, the group asks Kelly “how he can say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one,” and likewise calls on Arizona journalists to question Kelly on his extremist positions on the campaign trail. The ad, which launched Thursday night, is set to run on the Phoenix TV nightly news and Sunday political talk shows through next week.

The Arizona Senate race between Kelly and Republican Blake Masters—widely expected to be one of the most competitive in the nation—could determine which party controls the Senate come January 2023. “Mark Kelly is a perfect example of why a red wave is coming in states like Arizona,” said George Landrith, president of Frontiers of Freedom Action, the group that aired the ad. “He wants to run as a moderate, but like every Senate Democrat, he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

The ad’s release comes just days after the group aired a similar TV spot in New York markets, criticizing Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) as “the media’s chosen candidate,” which was hailed by one conservative news outlet as the “greatest campaign ad of all time.” Like the New York TV blitz, the first minute of the Arizona spot focuses chiefly on the media for trying to “crush dissent” and hide corruption, displaying headlines about media scandals and smears—including its suppression of the COVID-19 lab leak theory, censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop bombshell, promotion of the Russian collusion hoax, a coverup of Hillary Clinton’s email scandals, and refusal to report on Biden’s blackmailing of the Ukrainian government. The ad also catalogs other political smears, like those against General Michael Flynn, students at Covington Catholic High School, and parents protesting anti-Americanism in their local schools.

The ad goes on to blame the media for elevating Joe Biden to the presidency by letting him run “from his basement” and “covering up his incompetence and ill health.” It then goes on to smear Biden as “the worst president in modern history,” and features videos of him falling up the stairs on Air Force One and taking directions from the Easter Bunny at a White House event with the headline “EASTER BUNNY RUNS WHITE HOUSE EVENT.”

Around the halfway mark of the two-minute TV spot, the ad labels Kelly as Biden’s “key enabler,” noting that he votes with Biden 92 percent of the time and “cast the deciding vote on huge spending bills that cause shattering inflation and recession”—referring to the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act,” which economists predict will even further aggravate inflation and raise costs for Arizona families.

Additionally, the ad notes how attempts by the likes of Biden and Kelly to push a radical takeover of elections—as well as efforts by other Democrats to alter the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Senate, American citizenship, and the Electoral College—represent a “scorched-earth, rule-or-ruin” attack on longstanding American democratic institutions. “The GOP has never gotten across to the people how those bills would have destroyed the secret ballot, but Department of Justice bureaucrats in charge of our elections, abolished citizenship rights, packed the Supreme Court into irrelevance, radically changed the U.S. Senate, and made a few states the only thing that mattered in presidential elections by abolishing the Electoral College,” said Landrith.

The ad concludes with a call for the people of Arizona to “make the media bosses the 2022 issue” before stating that Kelly “was the 50th senator and could have forced Biden and Schumer to stop the deliberate border crisis.” Mark Kelly, the ad goes on to say, “is a symptom of all that is wrong about Washington. Why did Mark Kelly go to the big city and forget the people who sent him there?”

“This Senate race is not a personality contest,” Landrith said. “Kelly’s opponent is a great candidate, but even if he weren’t, this issue is Kelly’s left-wing extremist voting in the Senate.”

Although Kelly has thus far maintained a marginal lead over Masters in statewide polling, the release of the ad could go a long way in further tightening the race and compelling moderates, independents, and disaffected Democrats to reconsider their support for Kelly as their representative in the Senate.

BREITBART: Super PAC Attacking Media, Schumer Expands Ad Buy to Target Mark Kelly

By Joel Pollak

A conservative super PAC that is urging Republicans to target the mainstream media in campaign messages is expanding its ad buy, entering the Arizona race for Senate with TC spots targeting Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ).

As Breitbart News reported last month, the Frontiers of Freedom Action (FFA) super PAC placed ads in regional markets in upstate New York, urging voters to consider the “bargain” that Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) allegedly made to avoid a difficult primary challenge from the likes of democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY): if he would vote and govern from the left, he would be left virtually unopposed in his primary race.

Now, the PAC is making the same case in Arizona, arguing that Kelly — who campaigned as a moderate but has voted with the party’s left since taking office in 2021 — made a similar “corrupt bargain” in his own race.

The PAC has bought airtime for a two-minute ad to air during 10 p.m. television news shows in Phoenix, to run on Thursday night and on Sunday through next week. (See TV Spot above)

It has also released a similar ad on the web: <HERE>

The ads allege that Kelly was the chief “Biden enabler,” and that as the “50th Senator” he could have stopped some of the most radical legislation to pass through the chamber, but refused to do so.

The implied contrast is with Sen. Kirsten Sinema (D-AZ), who has joined Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in opposing some left-wing initiatives and defending the filibuster that enshrines the rights of the minority.

The ad encourages viewers and voters to pressure their local media outlets to ask questions of Kelly, and urges them to see the 2022 midterms as a way to “sed a message” to a corrupt media establishment.

Kelly faces a challenge from Republican Blake Masters in the upcoming November election.

MAKE “LIBERAL EXTREMIST” MARK KELLY ANSWER  “CORRUPT BARGAIN” ALLEGATION

Mark Kelly made a corrupt bargain with left-wing extremists to not run a primary against him if he pushed far-left positions” — TV spot. 

Ask “local press” and Arizona news “affiliates” to hold Kelly “accountable on the campaign trail” by asking —

           “Why did he let his fear of a primary make him cave in to the left-wing extremist “squad”? 

           “How can he say he isn’t a left-wing extremist if every time he votes like one?” 

         

PHOENIX TV  PUSH:  2 – MINUTE SPOT (https://youtu.be/29shDBn8JYQ) ON PHOENIX NIGHTLY NEWS AND SUNDAY NEWS SHOWS AND 3-MINUTE WEB RELEASE (https://youtu.be/Mz6rujONihg) also says KELLY WAS  “CHIEF BIDEN-SCHUMER ENABLER” AND “AS 5OTH SENATOR” COULD HAVE STOPPED THE DEBACLES. BUT HE NEVER DID!

“He was the deciding vote in the Senate and could have forced Biden and Schumer to stop their deliberate border crisis.”

“Instead he became a Biden-Schumer enabler and gave them everything they wanted.”

END MARK KELLY’S ‘FREE RIDE’ FROM THE NATIONAL MEDIA  

“Mark Kelly is a perfect example of why a Red Wave is coming in states like Arizona,” said Frontiers of Freedom Action President, George Landrith. “He wants to run as a moderate, but like every Senate Democrat he is imperiled by his corrupt bargain with the Left which said in effect: ‘Don’t primary me and I will vote your way.’”

“THIS SENATE RACE IS NOT A PERSONALITY CONTEST. KELLY’S OPPONENT IS A GREAT CANDIDATE, BUT EVEN IF HE WEREN’T, THE ISSUE IS KELLY’S CONSISTENT LEFT WING EXTREMIST VOTING IN THE SENATE,” said George Landrith, President of FRONTIERS OF FREEDOM ACTION.

We ask in the TV spot:

           “Why he went to Washington and sided with the left-wing extremists against the people of Arizona?”

           “Why Mark Kelly went to the Big City and forgot the people who sent him there?”

Spot also says:

            “Ask the local news not to give Kelly the free ride that he gets from corrupt national media.”

             “Ask the Arizona media and affiliates to question Mark Kelly on the campaign trail.”

KELLYS  “FREE RIDE” FROM NATIONAL MEDIA MEANS HE HAS NEVER HAD TO DENOUNCE”  EXTREMISTS  WHO WANT TO  DEFUND THE POLICE OR DEMOCRATS “dark money alliance with notorious anti-American billionaire George Soros, to opposition to school reform and parental rights, as well as the destruction of women’s sports and childhood education with “gender lunacy.”

SPOT SAYS “Make The Media The 2022 Issue”

Calling national media  “the most powerful and corrupt institutions in America” seeking to “smear” GOP candidates and protect their own “chosen candidates,”  TV SPOT asks voters to “send a message to the media bosses” who are “corrupting American journalism” and give them a “miserable election night” by asking Kelly for answers 

“Get back at those who have corrupted journalism and seek to crush dissent and who smear Kelly’s opponent.”

TV Spot says — the MEDIA, AS ONE OF AMERICAS MOST CORRUPT INSTITUTIONS, COVERED UP — 1) China virus leak, 2) Hunter Biden laptop scandal, 3) illegal wrongdoing by Clinton and Biden, 4) FBI harassment of political dissenters,  5) never apologized for two years of its Russian collusion hoax, 6) promoted smears and civil rights violations against conservatives, 7) conducted phony impeachments and totalitarian style show trials, and 8) covered up Bidens ill health and incompetence by letting him run from his basement.
