Using National Security to Push Through Their Own Special-Interest

October 9th, 2012  :  Written by Patriot #1

“It had nothing to do with port security.”

Frank J. Fahrenkopf Jr.

Frank Fahrenkopf, president of the American Gaming Association, spoke the truth about the presidential signing on Friday, October 13th. The ‘it’ he was referring to was the “Freeloading Frist” rider that was tacked onto the SAFE Port Act, and had nothing to do with port security.

Unfortunately, the truth of the matter comes out too late. That’s happening a lot to truth these days.

The new law, officially known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act, is creating more confusion than law. That seems to be happening a lot these days too – creating more confusion than law.

But before you get lost in the details of this latest mess, know this -

The National Security of United States has just been used to push through a special-interest.

The National Security of the United States. Used for special-interest.

“It had nothing to do with port security.”

That’s right. It had nothing to do with port security. It had everything to do with special-interest.

Pushing a special-interest agenda through on the back of National Security. Sadly, that seems to be happening a lot these days.
