A BOY WHO MATTERED
A BOY WHO MATTERED

In A Boy Who Mattered, author Marshall Frank brings the reader into the pathetic life of his firstborn son, Bennett, who began using drugs before his teens, turned on by a family member who thought nothing was wrong. Such an act opened the door to a life of dependency, sickness, failure, and homelessness that affected many others in his circle of friends and relatives for over forty years. Sadly, it is typical of the multi-thousands of users who give up on life for the temporary pleasures that drugs provide. It is a common story, from coast to coast, that America sadly ignores until crimes are committed. This particular story emphasizes the root causes of drug dependency, society’s role, family issues, ignorance, and what can be done about it. Ever the police investigator, Frank also draws the reader into the social and legal risks and the subliminal lures that introduce new users to the demons, from which it is so difficult to sever. People who struggle with addicted loved ones will find helpful resources and information about how to fight this dreaded disease. This book will hopefully expose facts, teach and assist people who are in need of help. If only one human being is saved, Bennett’s life will have not been in vain.

AMERIKASTAN
AMERIKASTAN

"AMERIKASTAN - Conquest From Within" screams of political incorrectness pointing to the peril of Islamic religious ideology via jihad to convert and conquer America, and the world. This book eliminates all controversy and wipes the thin-line between Islamic fundamentalism and moderate Islam, as both feed on the same religious nourishment form the Quran, bowing to the Hadith, while wailing to the rise of Sharia -- the Islamic law. The author reveals the nefarious decrees of secreted manifestos as commanded by major jihad organizations which inexorably spell out the mission, objectives and methods being carried out today, "from within," laying the groundwork for ultimate conquest of the west.

THE UPSIDE TO MURDER
THE UPSIDE TO MURDER

After 16 year-old Cassandra is gang-raped, shot and left for dead, African-American Doctor Orville T. Madison, embarks on a stealth campaign to protect his daughter from reliving the terrifying ordeal through rigors of the justice system. His obsessive pursuit drives the Miami physician into a spiral of chaos as he desperately tries to resolve inexplicable conflicts between love of child and love of God. Besides emotional struggles and unending suspense, Upside To Murder offers engaging sub-plots with forensic investigations, social controversy and the power of love. A gut-wrenching drama pitting good versus evil bringing out the worst in the best of people.

DIRE STRAITS
DIRE STRAITS

Set in the steamy, drug-business world of Miami, Florida, a glitzy mansion is raided by gunmen looking for a huge stash of money. Four people are murdered, but the killers overlook two witnesses in hiding. The woman, known only as Mirage, cannot allow herself to be traced by the police, the killers or her husband. Dire Straits is a frenzied, fast-paced thriller that brings non-stop suspense from start to end as slick Cuban Homicide Detective, Mike Estevez, stumbles upon far more than he ever suspected in a deadly week of terror.

Reviews:

Marshall Frank's Dire Straits, is a suspenseful thriller with low-life characters gruesomely believable as he takes rads on a tour through South Florida's
raunchy underworld.
---- Annette Clifford, Florida Today

In the style of Elmore Leonard, Frank delivers sensational details with realistic hard prose.

Donald L. Gilleland

"Amerikastan is by far the best book I’ve ever bought on Amazon. More than that, it is the absolutely finest, most definitive treatise I’ve ever read on the Islamic threat to America. Radical Islam is at war with Infidels around the world. Their militant ideological goal is world conquest in which Islam will be the only religion and Sharia Law will apply to everyone. If they succeed, our Constitution and Democratic form of government will cease to exist. “No go” zones already exist in some of our states where Sharia Law rules and non-Muslims enter those enclaves at great personal risk. The radical Islamic plan is to take over our country from within. Amerikastan provides the reader with irrefutable facts that will relieve any doubt the reader might have. Buy this book. You won’t be able to put it down!"

Valerie Allen

A sad but true story about the author's son who died an untimely death after a life time of mental illness, drug use, and homelessness. The frantic efforts of friends and family to offer help and support and to hold out hope comes to a tragic end. This is the story of a man pushed in the wrong direction as a child, who was unable to be saved from himself. Moving and well written with sincere honesty by a father forced to face the unthinkable.

Frank’s common sense solutions to many of this nation’s problems, both domestic and international, make for very interesting and thought provoking reading.
He is economically conservative while socially liberal so it’s hard to label him or pin him down.
He just addresses problems individually and offers common sense solutions.
A must read for anyone who cares about the future of this nation.

THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: FOR AND AGAINST

This is about employing common sense.  

In the presidential race, many feel we do not have great options. But we must still vote, and … like in many other elections…we often end up voting against someone rather than for someone. In other words, many voters are guided by deciding who we think would be least harmful to our nation.

When viewing the election in such terms, it clearly tells me how important it is to re-elect Donald Trump, and why.  I am not his biggest fan. I’m one of those who cringe when he blurts out some of his ego-maniacal comments and other assorted barbs that make me shake my head. But all things considered, America will still be far better off by keeping the country in a democracy mode with a capitalistic government. Preserving those basic tenets are far more important than being guided by personalities.

The hard left in America is rising to the occasion.  Our nation is inching its way to the slippery slope where Socialism is not just an idea, it’s a reality which will come to bear, affecting our kids and their kids for generations to come. Consider also, there is another step to consider in that process.  Hard-core socialists have a mission to see America fall down that slope into a full-blown communist state. This is not a theory. It’s close to a reality if radical  Democrats like Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Pelosi, Schumer, AOC and George Soros have their way.

We all remember Castro, and the Cuban revolution. Many of us were still living in S. Florida then. Fidel fought in the jungles as a die-hard socialist, so he claimed. But it was a deception. It wasn’t until Fidel completely controlled the new government and admitted (surprise) his goals were rooted in communism. 

I spoke to many struggling Cubans back then (being a young Dade police officer). Cuba lost multi-thousands of innocent citizens to “MIA” (missing in action)  status, while thousands more escaped the island bringing with them the clothes on their backs, and nothing else. Sixty years hence, people are still driving pre-1960 jalopies and people own nothing, unless provided by the state.  I remember one Cuban guy selling bananas on a street corner, I asked about his journey from Cuba to the USA.  He said he had been a bank vice president, and his family was living with two other families in one apartment. I remember him passionately telling me, “No welfare. We no take welfare”

Black Lives Matter is a nice cliche’ .. we all want to see equality among all citizens. However, if you look past the smokescreen, Black Lives Matter is co-founded by proud Marxists named, Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza. Check it out. They are an established, unapologetic communist organization, portraying themselves as guardians of black people. And, by the way, very involved in much of the violence and looting in the last seven months.

 PolitiFact | Is Black Lives Matter a Marxist movement?

Communism is a reality, not a theory. It is a hard-cold fact. They’ve been warning us since the 1950s they intend to divide and conquer the west. And, they are inching closer.  Communism is powerful. It is well-funded. It is aiming toward the grand prize. You and me. 

Riots and desperation are everywhere throughout our country like never before.  It is no accident. The movement is organized and paid for via haters of America, behind the scenes.

So let’s vote smart.

If communism comes to the U.S., there will be no turning back. So when we vote, we must not only be passionate, we must be intelligent and well informed or else our grandkids may one day be slaves to the government. When we vote, we must remember that it’s not just about a presidency, or a party. It’s about the movement, and the vast array of management systems, domestic and foreign, that comes with the president we elect.

Reminds me of that little girl in the Sci-Fi movie saying “They’rree  Heerrreee!.

In an article, columnist L. Todd Wood, Washington Times, 2018, wrote:

“Yes, this is the goal; it is slowly being propagandized by the corrupt Marxist media. The communists lost the Cold War in an economic and military collapse. Since then, they have sought to re-establish their power by embedding themselves and their ideology in our universities, to corrupt the younger generations, and the media, to control the thought processes of the low information voter.”

GUN CONTROL NOT THE ANSWER TO GUN PROBLEMS.

I’m a gun owner, and a 30-year career police officer, though I haven’t fired a weapon in over 30 years. It’s just not my shtick. But I sure feel safer knowing a weapon is within reach if an unforeseen and dangerous incident occurs within my purview.

     In every national election, the anti-gun brigade emerges with demands that gun-laws be more restricted, citing violent crime as the number one objective. The problem with that argument is that legally purchased guns, with background checks, have very little impact on the crime rate. Most guns used in violent crimes and/or gang activity are acquired by private sales, thievery or the black market. Thus, gun “control” is not the answer. Rarely do legally purchased guns surface in violent environments.

     Those who would overturn the 2nd Amendment would be making a horrible mistake, all in the so-called interest of reducing crime and violence.

     I do not mean to suggest that some revisions to gun laws might be in order. I totally understand the comparison about the 2nd Amendment being passed in 1791, when rifles were long and single-shot only. If that amendment was passed in today’s world, it would read much different.

     No private citizen needs to own a machine gun, cannon, or homemade bombs for that matter. I’ve also heard arguments from folks in other parts of the world, where violent crime is much lower, ostensibly because gun ownership is more tightly restricted. Yes, Sweden, France and Amsterdam and most countries in Europe have stricter gun laws which gives American naysayers justification for proposing tougher laws, or yet, abolishing the 2nd Amendment. Bear in mind, also, that our country is far more multi-cultural and multi-ethnic  than other nations in the world.

     The sad truth is that criminal gun activity is a product of the streets, mostly illegal. In a special report issued recently by the Department of Justice, state and federal prisoners who had used firearms in their crimes obtained them in the black market, while other guns were gifts from friends or relatives. Only 7 percent of guns used in crime were purchased guns from dealers and less than one percent were bought at gun shows. So much for background checks.

     The most serious problem producing violent crime in America, which we hear little about, is the dilemma of “Mental Illness.” Whereby seriously deranged individuals could be remanded by court order to mental institutions until the late 1970s, more than 90 percent of those institutions are now closed due to court decisions, leaving prisons as housing centers for the mentally ill. Prison studies have determined that roughly 20 percent of inmates (out of 2.3 million) are deemed seriously disturbed.

     Successfully fighting crime is more doable than people think. All we need to do is search for the best examples, where many problems were actually solved. In the largest city in America, murders in New York City rose to over 2,000 per year in the early 1990s. Along came Mayor Rudy Giuliani who initiated a myriad of programs to successfully reduce violent crime. When he first took command of the Big Apple, between 1600 and 2000 annual murders were tabulated. By the time he left office, those murders dropped to under 600 a year. In his first three years as mayor, over 56,000 guns were impounded from the streets. Other violent crimes dropped as well. Why? Mayor Giuliani initiated several programs, the most controversial being Stop and Frisk. With specific restrictions and training, police officers were given the green light to stop and question hundreds of thousands annually.

     Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who succeeded Giuliani, maintained the same process with results of lowering crime rates. Some folks thought it was an overreach, others screamed racial profiling was too common. But the facts support both the mayors, having saved many lives in New York City. What’s more important than saving lives and making citizens feel safe?

     The problem is not just guns. The past six months of unrestrained city riots, unprecedented throughout America, indicates how too many Anti-American people in our communities are under orders by a hidden enemy to destroy America. That’s another topic.

A FRANK MOVIE REVIEW: “HONEST THIEF” – 7.0

 

In a word:   Engrossing                    

 

Liam Neeson is one of those actors who cannot make a bad movie. Much like DiNiro, Cruise and so many more, he always gives it 100 percent, while making his tough-guy  characters as believable as possible. “Honest Thief” is a good movie, but not a great movie, mainly because of too many implausibles.

     Based in a major city in America, Neeson plays a middle-aged widower raising a boy and, for the last several years, worked at becoming a top-flight bank robber because he had been a munitions expert in the military and knew the mechanics of entering a safe undetected. Over the years, he amassed some 9 million dollars, but never spent any of it (Implausible #1) but rather, he stored the cash in boxes inside a rental storage facility.

     Alas, Neeson’s character meets the woman of his dreams and decides he will give up crime and confess to her, and to the FBI, his crimes, and return the money in the hope of earning a short sentence. (Implausible #2) Sounds good enough, but the mission becomes more dangerous when the FBI agents are more personally interested in his piles of cash. Everything goes wrong, even the confession, as he and his lady friend are faced with separate lives for many years.

     As usual, a number of fight scenes consist of the inevitable overdose of martial arts, compliments of the good-and-bad guys, as well as a few shoot-outs.  (Implausible #3).

     The new romance for Neeson is played by Kate Walsh, a very good actress. I can’t say the same for some in the supporting cast, especially those who played the crooked FBI agents. It just didn’t work for me and, I would imagine, the FBI as well.

     I can opine that Neeson is truly a gifted actor, who will likely be confined to more shoot-‘em-ups and too many scenes of martial arts combat, rather than deep, moving roles like he did in Schindler’s List. Regardless, the film was entertaining, but not worthy of any Oscar nominations.

     I’d give this movie a 7 out of 10.

“BLACKOUT” A COMPELLING BOOK BY CANDACE OWENS

 

  Subtitle:  How Black America Can Make Its Second Escape from the Democratic Plantation.

 

I never endorse books. This is one of those rare occasions.

One of the brightest young Americans I’ve heard in a long time. Once she gets going, there’s no one who can keep up with her. Many of us have seen or heard this woman when she’s in a talking mode, usually pertaining to black people who insist on clinging onto the left. She has been called to testify before a congressional committee, to the chagrin of people like Pelosi, Schiff, and Schumer.  There is no one in the public arena who has the charisma and charm (and intellect) of Candace Owens.

In her book, she shares how … in her early life … she had been programmed to believe it was the duty of blacks to be ingratiated by the left wing of the party, to whom she should owe her allegiance. Then she came across talk show host, Larry Elder, a bright man in his own right (and black) who caught her attention to the other side of the coin, and that it was the conservative wing of government who provided the opportunities of self-governance. 

Here’s a few sentences from her book, Blackout, already among best sellers according to the N.Y. Times. Listen to the magic of this lady:

    ***  Black America, much like the Jews in the Old Testament, has been liberated, but somehow back into the wilderness by the false prophets of the Democratic Party.

    ***  While Democrats have long acknowledged our struggles and the crimes enacted against us, they have done very little to provide actual remedies or prepare us for a future that doesn’t center on our brokeness.  

    ***   Citing Larry Elder, Ms. Owens writes, The biggest problem that black people have is the percentage of blacks, 75 percent of them, that are raised without fathers. 

(We should note here, that the ratio was 25 percent raised without fathers, when LBJ passed the massive welfare reforms in the late 1960s)

 

Ms Owens is an American conservative author, commentator, and political activist.

 Candace Owens at hearing on Confronting White Supremacy – YouTube  showing Ms. Owens testifying before congress.  Watch how she electrifies a room, especially in the last two minutes of the segment.

Candace Owens has recorded numerous podcast videos, many topics, worth a look  Start here: The Candace Owens Show | PragerU

Meanwhile, I highly recommend this book.  You’ll walk away knowing more than you thought you knew, regardless of political parties..

 

 

 

OPEN SEASON ON COPS: PART II.

See link, below.

I wrote this piece in 2014, six years ago. Not much has improved. Cops are still under fire, subject to ambush, hate and revolution. That was the year Black Lives Matter came into being to be seen as a non-violent group of love dispensers. Six years hence, after witnessing their back-up ties to Antifa, we now know the true motives and objectives of BLM…learning that the co-founders (Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza) are proud and open Marxists, whose long range goals … like all Communists  … is to bring down the free world (you and me) under the oppressive control of government.  Ask any Cuban from the early days of Fidel Castro, and following generations, the nightmarish revolution, when Castro never acknowledged his Communist attachments until the takeover was completed.
                                                                                                                                         ___
Sure, the Cubans have government-controlled health care, but ask the population, how many citizens own cars, or houses, or property, or…for that matter, free will. 
                                                                                                                                          ___
Read the article.  It’s worse today than it was in 2014.  We actually have mayors and governors, and leaders of blue states that condone riots, assaults, arson, destruction of homes and businesses, and more. Never thought I’d see the day.
                                                                                                                                          ___
Remember, we are voting for a complex 4-year package deal, not just one human being.
                                                                                                                                           ___
Here’s the 2014 piece. Then, imagine the situation worsening in another six years.
                                                                                                                                            ___
