THE TEN MOST DESTRUCTIVE AMERICANS
Frank Hawkins - July 29, 2018
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 ten most destructive Americans of the last eighty years.
10. Mark Felt – Felt was Deputy Director of the FBI, a.k.a. “Deep Throat” during the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior FBI official directly interfering in America’s political affairs. He was a forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Andrew McCabe.
9. Bill Ayers – 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. He ghost-wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams of My Father.”
8. Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary Jo 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 U.S. 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 U.S. and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.
7. Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who began the politicization 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 so 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 relatively 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 twenty percent 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 - Jarrett was 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 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands of American lives damaged; and 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 by 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 (The following just missed the ten worst 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 Ni**”, “Big Pimpin’”, “Ni*** in Paris”, and “Strictly 4 My N.I.******.” 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. It still retains influence in Washington and New York.
George Soros – Soros was a 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 – Davis is an anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying Soviet agent. Probable birth father and admitted primary mentor of young Barack Hussein Obama.
The following is from the Florida Consumer Newsletter regarding this crazy auto warranty scam:
"In a move designed to relieve a major consumer complaint, the Federal Communications Commissions’ (FCC) Robocall Response Team recently announced that the Enforcement Bureau has ordered phone companies to stop carrying traffic regarding a known robocall scam marketing auto warranties. The calls are coming from Roy Cox, Jr., Aaron Michael Jones, their Sumco Panama companies, and international associates. Building on FCC action earlier in July, all U.S. voice service providers must now take all necessary steps to avoid carrying this robocall traffic.
It’s illegal in most cases for an individual or company to send you a recorded message unless you have given them written permission to contact you in this way, according to Federal Trade Commission (FTC) rules. Among the few exceptions are political calls about candidates running for office and charities asking for donations.
The Cox/Jones/Sumco Panama operation appears to be responsible for making more than eight billion unlawful prerecorded message calls to American consumers since at least 2018. The robocalls include prerecorded marketing messages which encouraged consumers to follow prompts to speak with a “warranty specialist” about extending or reinstating their car warranty.
Illegal robocalls were the number one source of consumer complaints to the FCC in 2021, but they aren’t the only method scammers use to push auto warranties. Scammers may send you an “Extended Warranty Letter” or “Motor Vehicle Service Notification” via regular mail. These letters look official and may even include information specific to the make and model of your vehicle.
The letters state that your initial warranty is about to expire or that you have not contacted the company to activate a vehicle service agreement. You may be advised that you are at an increased risk for financial liability if you do not respond and that this may be the company’s final or only attempt to contact you. At best, the robocalls and letters may be trying to sell you a product you don’t really need, but chances are it’s just a scam trying to separate you from your money.
Whichever method the scammers use, you should be aware of the red flags that indicate this may be a scam.
Immediate Action Required: A call or letter says:
Carefully read the fine print on any contract to see exactly what it covers and how long it lasts. Know the difference between an auto warranty and an auto service contract.
If you have been a victim of an auto warranty scam, file a complaint at FloridaConsumerHelp.com and tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov."

The utility companies have thus far had little to say about the alarming cost projections to operate electric vehicles (EVs) or the increased rates that they will be required to charge their customers. It is not just the total amount of electricity required, but the transmission lines and fast charging capacity that must be built at existing filling stations. Neither wind nor solar can support any of it. Electric vehicles will never become the mainstream of transportation!
In part 1 of our exposé on the problems with electric vehicles (EVs), we showed that they were too expensive, too unreliable, rely on materials mined in China and other unfriendly countries, and require more electricity than the nation can afford. In this second part, we address other factors that will make any sensible reader avoid EVs like the plague.
EV CHARGING INSANITY
In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. No one likely thinks about the fact that it can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?
ICSC-Canada board member New Zealand-based consulting engineer Bryan Leyland describes why installing electric car charging stations in a city is impractical:
“If you’ve got cars coming into a petrol station, they would stay for an average of five minutes. If you’ve got cars coming into an electric charging station, they would be at least 30 minutes, possibly an hour, but let’s say its 30 minutes. So that’s six times the surface area to park the cars while they’re being charged. So, multiply every petrol station in a city by six. Where are you going to find the place to put them?”
The government of the United Kingdom is already starting to plan for power shortages caused by the charging of thousands of EVs. Starting in June 2022, the government will restrict the time of day you can charge your EV battery. To do this, they will employ smart meters that are programmed to automatically switch off EV charging in peak times to avoid potential blackouts.
In particular, the latest UK chargers will be pre-set to not function during 9-hours of peak loads, from 8 am to 11 am (3-hours), and 4 pm to 10 pm (6-hours). Unbelievably, the UK technology decides when and if an EV can be charged, and even allows EV batteries to be drained into the UK grid if required. Imagine charging your car all night only to discover in the morning that your battery is flat since the state took the power back. Better keep your gas-powered car as a reliable and immediately available backup! While EV charging will be an attractive source of revenue generation for the government, American citizens will be up in arms.
USED CAR MARKET
The average used EV will need a new battery before an owner can sell it, pricing them well above used internal combustion cars. The average age of an American car on the road is 12 years. A 12-year-old EV will be on its third battery. A Tesla battery typically costs $10,000 so there will not be many 12-year-old EVs on the road. Good luck trying to sell your used green fairy tale electric car!
Tuomas Katainen, an enterprising Finish Tesla owner, had an imaginative solution to the battery replacement problem—he blew up his car! New York City-based Insider magazine reported (December 27, 2021):
“The shop told him the faulty battery needed to be replaced, at a cost of about $22,000. In addition to the hefty fee, the work would need to be authorized by Tesla…Rather than shell out half the cost of a new Tesla to fix an old one, Katainen decided to do something different… The demolition experts from the YouTube channel Pommijätkät (Bomb Dudes) strapped 66 pounds of high explosives to the car and surrounded the area with slow-motion cameras…the 14 hotdog-shaped charges erupt into a blinding ball of fire, sending a massive shockwave rippling out from the car…The videos of the explosion have a combined 5 million views.”
We understand that the standard Tesla warranty does not cover “damage resulting from intentional actions,” like blowing the car up for a YouTube video.
EVS PER BLOCK IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD
A home charging system for a Tesla requires a 75-amp service. The average house is equipped with 100-amp service. On most suburban streets the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla. For half the homes on your block to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly overloaded. LONG LIVE THE V-8!
Although the modern lithium-ion battery is four times better than the old lead-acid battery, gasoline holds 80 times the energy density. The great lithium battery in your cell phone weighs less than an ounce while the Tesla battery weighs 1,000 pounds. And what do we get for this huge cost and weight? We get a car that is far less convenient and less useful than cars powered by internal combustion engines. Bryan Leyland explained why:
“When the Model T came out, it was a dramatic improvement on the horse and cart. The electric car is a step backward into the equivalence of an ordinary car with a tiny petrol tank that takes half an hour to fill. It offers nothing in the way of convenience or extra facilities.”
The electric automobile will always be around in a niche market likely never exceeding 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers are investing in their output and all will be disappointed in their sales. Perhaps they know this and will manufacture just what they know they can sell. This is certainly not what President Biden or California Governor Newsom are planning for. However, for as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) issued a statement after the signing into law of a comprehensive veteran's toxic exposure bill (S.3373) known as the PACT Act. The statement claims that the VA is ready to implement the PACT Act and deliver for toxic-exposed Veterans and their survivors. If you think you might be eligible for PACT Act benefits, here's what you need to know:
The act establishes a presumption of service connection for 23 respiratory illnesses and cancers related to the smoke from burn pits. Further, the new law also provides new benefits for veterans who faced radiation exposure during deployments throughout the Cold War, adds hypertension and monoclonal gammopathy to the list of illnesses linked to Agent Orange exposure in the Vietnam War, expands the timeline for Gulf War medical claims and requires new medical exams for all veterans with toxic exposure claims.
Veterans who served in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Guam during the Vietnam War era would be covered under the same Agent Orange presumptive policies as those who served in Vietnam itself.
Today marks the anniversary of that fateful day in 1945 when 'all hell broke loose'.
By the time the atom bomb was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, the Second World War had raged for six years. Germany had been defeated and Europe lay in ruins.
Focus turned to Japan, the last Axis Power country. US President Harry Truman and his military commanders knew that an invasion of Japan would be extremely costly in terms of Allied lives - up to a million casualties were predicted. So they resolved to use the newly developed atomic bomb to reduce Japanese cities to rubble without setting foot on land.
So it was that a B-29 Superfortress nicknamed Enola Gay after the pilot's mother, dropped the first atom bomb on Hiroshima. Three days later a second bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki. Between 129,000-226,000 people were killed, mostly civilians. About half died instantly when the bombings happened, and the rest died from radiation sickness and other illnesses in the days and weeks after. Days after the attacks, Japan surrendered to the Allies, and came under a US-led military occupation.
The moral, legal and ethical issues of the bombings are still debated today.
We published an article written by Mike some time ago, and once again he has produced another useful and informative piece in support of our veteran and Active Duty service members. Please take the time to read, and share.
"How You Can Make a Difference in the Lives of Service Members and Their Families"
"Veterans and their families make many sacrifices for the country. Deployed soldiers spend countless weeks away from their loved ones and have trouble adjusting when they get back. For veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, for example, the number is as high as 44%, says The Science Behind Health. They deserve love and support for their dedication – and their families too.
You can show your gratitude for service members and retired veterans and give back through concrete actions. It doesn’t have to be an exalted gesture – something as simple as an hour of your time can make a world of difference to service members and families. Below are some meaningful suggestions, courtesy of Rolling Thunder, Inc Chapter 1 Florida.
Visit senior or wounded veterans
Senior or wounded veterans who once served the country proudly should never be forgotten. A simple visit from you can brighten their day and make them smile. If you don’t know any suitable people in your community, you can call a local nursing home or hospital and ask for suggestions.
Make them a part of your meals and holiday celebrations
Cooking a delicious, wholesome meal for military personnel – or their loved ones when they’re away – is a wonderful way to show your appreciation. You could also invite them over to celebrate an important holiday celebration or two.
Donate what you don’t need
You probably have several knickknacks lying around that you don’t need. Consider donating them to military families who need them. What can you donate? Almost anything works, from clothes and shoes to gadgets and appliances. There are a variety of charities for veterans, so consider how you want to contribute.
Give them a job
Own a family-run business or know someone who needs help? You could help a veteran land a job. This is one of the best ways to support a veteran meaningfully, as many veterans fall on hard times and are in danger of homelessness. Whether you are hiring or just helping a veteran, remind them that their skills transfer into the civilian world. They bring attributes like loyalty and trainability, and they likely have many examples of their problem solving skills from their service. Learn how to read an ex-mil resume and interview them appropriately, and you can find a true gem for your workforce.
Facilitate their education
When you can’t help them get a job, you could facilitate their education to help them get one – or simply inform them that education post-service is an option. Nowadays, you can acquire a stellar education online. And because these programs are online, veterans can continue to hold down jobs while they learn.
For example, if you know an educated veteran who is struggling to land a job in a conventional field, you could inform them of master’s degree programs that can push their careers forward. Going back to school to earn an IT master’s degree would offer them skills in technology management, cybersecurity, and data analytics – all areas with high demand.
Volunteer your time and money to a related cause
Many veteran-related causes could use your assistance. You could volunteer your money or your time. AARP suggests charities like Hope for the Warriors, Homes for Our Troops, and Operation Gratitude. If you’d prefer to contribute to something closer back home, you could help a veteran hall – they have fallen on hard times recently.
Volunteer your time to them directly
Instead of serving an organization, you could lend a helping hand to a veteran in your community in person. You could babysit for them, help them do the groceries, mow their lawn, or simply spend an evening with them. Everything helps. When service members know they are cared for – and their families are being looked after in their absence – they can serve with pride and peace of mind. And you can be happy knowing you did your bit to make your community, and the world by extension, better for everyone.
Our veterans have done a lot for our country. We need to honor them, and those who have not come home. Rolling Thunder, Inc Chapter 1 Florida is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing awareness of POW and MIA soldiers. Visit their website to see how they are serving the community, and what you can do to help."
The United States Navy is training servicemen and women to cultivate “safe spaces” through the use of pronouns, as seen in a video publicized Monday. Now, I'm not going to post the video, because it literally makes me nauseous!
This video (and I'm sure many of you have seen it on social media), features Naval Undersea Warfare Center engineers Jony Rozon and Conchy Vasquez discussing “inclusive language” such as using “hey everyone” or “hey team” instead of “hey guys,” before detailing how the Navy plans to create a more sensitive environment, according to the Washington Free Beacon. Both Rozon and Vasquez sport LGBTQA+ Pride Flags on their clothing in the video, as well as being surrounded by infographics and materials that urge for various forms of inclusivity.
The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service (DVIDS) stated that the video is part of “official US Navy” training, and was posted by Air Force staff sergeant John Vannucci. The content was modeled after a children’s show, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
“How do we go about creating a safe space for everybody?” Vasquez asks Rozon. The answer, according to Rozon, is to use “inclusive language.” Another way that members of the US Navy can show each other that they are allies is to “include pronouns in our emails,” Vasquez notes.
Apparently the “most important thing is, do not pressure anybody into giving you their pronouns,” according to Vasquez.
The US Navy previously removed “woke” books from their updated reading list, such as “How to Be An Antiracist.” While Army Gen. Mike Milley has argued that diversity is an important strength of the US armed services, lawmakers such as Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has slammed the “woke cancer” in the military.
Commentators on the DVIDS video page largely appear to agree with Cruz, with one writing “the one thing that unites a work force is one mission, not pronouns.” Another wrote, “Hello to my American friends. Just a short message: you’re gonna lose the next war.”
Is this the culture that our military veterans have fought and died for throughout history?
It's no secret that veterans trying to receive medical treatment and benefits through the Veterans Administration had been extremely difficult in past years. They are making gains however, so all veterans should not give up hope!
There is one case that I have been following which involves a Navy sailor with a Top Secret cryptographic security clearance, working in a highly classified department, whose duty stations were never recorded in his service record. Similar to the super secret locations of our SEAL teams and the jobs they are sent to do.
The problem with this sailor is he was sent on a mission to Vietnam, and came in direct contact with Agent Orange. He is now battling a stage 4 cancer which is listed as one of the cancers connected with AO.
The dilemma: When he was sent on his various missions, he was only given travel vouchers which were handed over to those who provided the transportation, and no entry was ever made in his DD-214 or other service records. Therefore, his missions in Vietnam and elsewhere cannot be verified, and as such, the VA cannot grant benefits... and sadly, the Navy Department hasn't been much help either.
Missing records for sailors on Temporary Duty (TAD or TDY) is not unusual, especially within the cryptologic community, where they are routinely rotated in, on, and out of different countries, surface ships, subsurface vessels, and surveillance aircraft.
It is my hope that the Navy will begin a better job of accounting for sailors who are assigned additional duties somewhere other than their permanent duty station - and I will continue to follow this sailor's story.
I'm sure you all have experienced this, no matter where you live: Gasoline prices are the same throughout your neighborhood, no matter what brand you buy... and they ALL go up to the same price, but competitively reduce their prices until the next spike. The price increases by 20¢, but lowers by pennies. So why is it that that fuel already in those stations tanks fluctuate so much? I pose the question, but I don't have the answer. But, I do have some interesting facts about our oil 'industry'.
it’s not Russia's fault, or China's fault, or Ukraine, or India, or Venezuela, or Iran, or Bangladesh, or any other countries' fault as to why everything is so expensive right now. It's the figurehead of the progressive left Joe Biden's fault, because they are suppressing the domestic oil industry for political gain. Price it so high,the population will have to, 'go green'.
EVERYTHING depends on crude oil... but you might not know that if you believe the lies that are being told about oil and the oil industry.

You may have heard about efforts to give the World Health Organization (WHO) greater authority in influencing U.S. public health policies in preparation for or in response to public health emergencies.
I can assure you that I will do everything within my power to stop those who would seek to enable those outside the United States to influence or dictate such policies. We are a constitutional republic, and as such outside governing bodies and policies have no authority, right or business in deciding our policies. I supported President Trump’s efforts to cut off funding to the WHO because of WHO’s dismal failures and have cosponsored H.R. 419 to stop US funding for WHO, which was restarted by President Biden.
Additionally, allow me to share just how compromised the WHO is. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, WHO has cowered to Chinese pressures and was inept in its ability to fully investigate the role of China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in causing the pandemic. Here is what we do know about the WIV:
As we now know from secret released emails from top National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials, NIH and WHO caved to Chinese pressure to dismiss early on the suggestion that the virus escaped from WIV. NIH worked with Chinese officials and top recipients of NIH research grants to publish letters in top scientific journals dismissing as “conspiracy theories” the notion that the virus escaped from the WIV.
As late as January 22, 2020, the WHO was putting out information that COVID-19 did not pose a public health emergency, when WHO was aware of reports of human-to-human transmission within China.
No, the WHO should have no role in dictating U.S. policy. And, I am also fighting to secure a full and thorough investigation of NIH’s Dr. Anthony Fauci and other officials across the U.S. government that know more about the WIV and the origins of the pandemic than we know today.
