Trent Franks, US representative, Arizona, Town hall meeting, Saturday, August 22, 2009, Obama birth certificate, Franks questions Obama, health care reform, Franks considering filing a lawsuit, ACORN fraudulent

US representative Trent Franks of Arizona, conducted a Town hall meeting, Saturday, August 22, 2009, in Kingman, AZ. Health care reform, national defense and illegal aliens and even fraudulent ACORN were discussed. However, what was most interesting about Trent Franks’ comments was his questioning Obama on not producing a birth certificate and indicating he may initiate a lawsuit. I am not certain if representative Franks really understands the eligibility issues, but at least he understands that there may be a problem.

Here are three action items for us to address:

1. Make certain that Trent Franks understands the serious eligibility issues surrounding Obama as well as his complete hiding of his past.
2. Encourage Trent Franks to initiate a lawsuit and provide data and resources.
3. Let Trent Franks know that we will support his efforts to represent the American people and uphold the US Constitution.

Here are some exerpts from the Mojave Daily News:

“Franks goes on the attack

PACKED HOUSE: U.S. Rep. Trent Franks, from Arizona’s 2nd District, held a town hall meeting Saturday in Kingman discussing issues ranging from health care reform to President Barack Obama’s citizenship. JIM SECKLER/The Daily News 
Congressman critical of Obama’s policies”

“KINGMAN – A big, boisterous crowd largely supported an Arizona Congressman, who lambasted the Democratic president and his policies.

Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican representing Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District that includes Mohave County, held a town hall meeting Saturday afternoon at a jammed-packed Kingman church.

 
Franks started the town hall off by showing a half-hour video on the country’s missile defense system. The movie warned of threats of a missile attack by rogue nations such as North Korea and Iran and the need to protect the country with a missile defense shield.

Franks then criticized President Barack Obama on every issue starting with the president’s lack of understanding of the threat by terrorists to launch an attack against the United States. The conservative Republican also said he voted against the federal stimulus bill and the Cash for Clunkers program, which he said benefited foreign car makers. He also said it would take 34,000 years to pay off the debt that Obama is accruing.”

“The other main issue dealt with numerous speakers questioning Obama’s birth certificate and why there wasn’t an investigation into whether he is a naturalized citizen. One woman said a newspaper announcement of his birth in Hawaii was not sufficient. Another asked how he could have a passport without a birth certificate.

Franks said there was not enough evidence that Obama is not an American citizen. He did say there was a lot of conflicting evidence of Obama’s citizenship and that he was considering filing a lawsuit, the only congressman to do so. Franks asked why the president did not simply produce a birth certificate.”

“Franks also called Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now fraudulent and said it should be investigated by the U.S. Attorney General. He also said the organization was committed to hurting the country and blamed the organization for requiring sub-prime loans that led to the country’s economic downturn.”

I am not certain if the people were quoted correctly or not regarding the use of the words “citizen” and “naturalized citizen.”

We must make certain that Representative Franks understands the difference.

****  UPDATE ****

I just received this from a AZ citizen:

“I have emailed Rep Franks several times,…. and He has responded to me each time….by email and also snail mail letter.  Pretty much saying that obama has been vetted and all is in order.  MAYBE we should email him some info to WAKE UP his mind a little bit.  You prepare what you want and I will make sure he gets it.  I will email it and I will also send him a certified letter.  WHAT do you think?  (I also emailed Sen Mccain,…. but never received any response at all)”

I certainly hope that Trent Franks did not utter words to placate his audience.

Representative Franks, we are watching you!

Wilmington NC tea party, Saturday, August 22, 2009, health care bill, socialism, big government, US Constitution

I was fortunate to be in Wilmington,  NC today, Saturday, August 22, 2009 and honored to speak with a group assembled for a tea party to protest government run health care, socialism and abuse of the US Constitution.

From the Youtube video I just posted:

“I was fortunate to be in Wilmington, NC at the right moment to film a Tea Party protest
of the government health care plan, socialism and big government in general.
These were friendly, average Americans that were not paid to be there and were not
bussed in. I was honored to be there and speak with these fine Americans.
God bless them all.”
