 WorldNetDaily: Barney Frank accuses Bush of 'ethnic cleansing'
Frank, the new chairman of the House Committee on Financial Services, said that after the administration's initial "incompetence," it has done "virtually nothing to alleviate" the loss of housing by the poor in New Orleans, who mostly are fl.
But Frank, Adamske acknowledged, called the alleged Republican inaction a "policy" and "calculated." He affirmed the congressman, who was speaking to a group of "liberal bloggers," would say the inaction is intentional.
Last February, Frank spoke to a group of some 400 Katrina survivors who came to the nation's capital for two days of rallies, protests and meetings with lawmakers about the rebuilding of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, the Washington Post reported.

 To Be Frank - The Boston Globe
Barney Frank's quarter century in Congress was interrupted by a scandal that would have buried other men.
Frank was in the center of it all, the bridge between the ambitious plans of the assembled wonks and the political and personal ambitions of White.
Once, while Frank was campaigning, a man told him he had heard that the congressman was a friend of "the boys from Providence." Pretty clearly, the man had heard "Provincetown" and disbelieved his ears, preferring to believe that Frank had the support of the Rhode Island mob.

 Barney Frank - dKosopedia
Representative Barney Frank was born in Bayonne, Hudson County, N.J. on March 31, 1940.
Frank, along with former Massachusetts Congressman Gerry Studds, were the first openly gay members of Congress (Studds came out in 1984, Frank in 1987.) Frank's liberal politics and openness about his sexual orientation have made him a lightning rod for extremists — Dick Armey called him "Barney Fag" in a 1995 interview.
But Frank is a very proud liberal and a leading voice on progressive issues, although pragmatic on occasion — such as the February 2004 same-gender marriages performed in San Francisco.

 RealClearPolitics - Articles - Barney Frank: The Equality Engineer
Frank questions whether market-driven wealth creation is producing more inequality "than is either socially healthy or economically necessary." He favors much more government intervention in the economy to diminish inequality.
Frank's committee has, he says, "a larger jurisdiction to talk than to legislate." Pay attention to the talk: In it liberalism's interest in diminishing inequality (using government power to regulate the economy's distribution effects) duels with conservatism's emphasis on freedom (incentives by which market forces rationally allocate wealth and opportunity).
Frank says he is fortunate to be "in a profession where a weakness of mine -- a short attention span -- is a strength." In a government with its fingers in far too many pies, legislators must flit from one subject to another.

Frank began writing immigration legislation while the domestic surveillance abilities of the FBI and the foreign surveillance abilities of the CIA were being devastated by attacks by the Democratic Party, the radical Left, and “civil liberties” groups including the National Lawyers Guild, the Center for Constitutional Rights and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Frank is no exception, since he considers foreigners who hold totalitarian views to be of no concern to national security, a view he has held since at least 1981, the year he officially began working to eliminate ideological exclusions.
The moment Barney Frank’s exclusions amendment was made law, it became unlawful, on the basis of their beliefs alone, to deny entry to immigrants or other foreign nationals with radical ideologies.

 Irregular Times Rating and Contact Information for Representative Barney Frank of MA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
Frank has taken the principled step of formally lending support to H.R., which would put an end to the practice of "extraordinary rendition." This is a practice in which Bush Administration officials send people into the custody of certain nations, knowing full well (some would say intending) that they will be tortured there.
Frank has taken the affirmative step of cosponsoring H.R., which would provide more information to the public about contacts between lobbyists and politicians, and which would slow down the revolving door of politics in which politicians move into cushy corporate jobs after they retire in exchange for favors.
Barney Frank has cosponsored H.R., which would keep members of the Federal Communication Commission from using their appointed positions to censor cable, satellite or internet programs they consider to be indecent.

 SwiftVets.com :: View topic - IMMIGRATING TERROR - (Barney Frank's Role)
Barney Frank went on a mission to relax and rewrite the laws during the years that Democrats held both the House and Senate.
Frank categorized the exclusions as “relics of the McCarthy era.” His associating the ideological exclusions with “McCarthyism” is disingenuous for many reasons, not least because Senator Joseph McCarthy concentrated his anti-Communist efforts on U.S. citizens, not aliens or visitors.
Frank is no exception, since he considers foreigners who hold totalitarian views to be of no concern to national security, a view he has held since at least 1981, the year he officially began working to eliminate ideological exclusions.

 Barney Frank discusses ‘being gay in Congress’
Frank, who began his career in politics in 1968 as an assistant to then Boston Mayor Kevin White, talked about the days when gay rights was not an issue because no one would discuss them.

Frank said the gay rights movement has effected “the most fundamental political change for any cause in the last 30 years.” He said he is proud of the progress that has been made and continues to be made in the U.S. “We have demonstrated to most Americans that they’re not homophobic,” he said.

 Open Source » Blog Archive » Barney Frank’s Grand Bargain
Barney Frank’s proposal may begin a dialog, but framing the proposal in terms of the economic populism and free trade polarizes the issue, oversimplifies the nature of the problem, and obscures possible solutions.
Frank’s solution of beefing up the social safety net to cushion the impact of letting our neat clean regulated and for the most part trustworthy market…Into the coal stained Dickensian swamp of the international marketplace is deeply insufficient.
Frank certainly isn’t suggesting a shift to socialism: His plans presume corporations with private property investing capital to earn returns, etc. We’re playing within the 45 yeard lines here, and while arguments about what things would be like on the 10 yard lines is illuminating but ultimately of little relevance.
