Running on Empty

Here’s one of my recent videos for the AFP Foundation. For more info about the Running on Empty tour, check this out.


Video: Throw Stuff at People With Whom You Disagree

Over the weekend I attended and filmed at Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s RightOnline conference in Minneapolis. One newsworthy moment occurred when a liberal activist tried (and failed) to throw glitter on U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann as she ended her remarks on Saturday afternoon.

I happened to catch the attempt on tape, then ran down to interview the Glitter Girl after she was removed from the hotel by security.

Kudos, Glitter Girl! You really changed the world this weekend. Because what this country needs right now is less rational discourse and more people who throw stuff at elected officials with whom they disagree. You are a fine example of the maturity and logic of the Modern American Left!

Video: Bureaucrats Gone Wild in Cancun

Greetings from Cancun, Mexico, where I’m covering the UN Global Warming Summit for Americans for Prosperity. Yeah – I know – tough gig.

Anyway, my first video from Cancun is below. It’s the first one I’ve produced that includes footage from my new Canon 60D DSLR – the shallow depth of field and clarity in low light really is impressive.

Two New Videos

Apologies for not posting here more often – it’s been a very busy campaign season. If you want to hear more from me, it’s probably better to follow me on Twitter – @frankstrategies.

In the meantime, though, here are a couple of videos I produced this weekend for Americans for Prosperity. The first shows a lot of supporters of Congressman Tom Perriello (D-Va.) proudly proclaiming that “Socialism is cool!” I shot it on Friday evening in Charlottesville outside President Obama’s rally for Perriello.

I shot the second video at yesterday’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear in DC. Lots of good folks and genuinely funny, clever signs, but it truly was probably the largest gathering of smug, condescending self-satisfaction in American history. I’m not sure why they don’t realize that “You People Are So F-ing Stupid!” is not a winning campaign slogan. But we’ll enjoy the response from Middle America on Tuesday night.

Video: Proud Socialists March in DC

Here’s the latest Frank Strategies viral video, filmed at Saturday’s liberal “One Nation” rally in DC. The video has collected more than 110,000 views in just about 36 hours, and as I write this it is the 28th-most-viewed YouTube video in the world over the past 24 hours.

As you know, if one random guy shows up at a tea party with a Obama-as-Hitler poster, Nancy Pelosi and the national media claim that hoards of angry conservatives are “waving swastikas.”

But when literally hundreds, if not thousands, of avowed socialists show up at a rally that was specifically endorsed by President Obama, the media doesn’t mention a thing. Not one word.

God Bless the YouTube.
