Three Timely Interviews With Those ‘In The Know’

WASHINGTON DC, June 28 — The Association of Mature American Citizens’ Better For America team was on hand at the recent People’s Convention in Detroit—a gathering described as “the natural focal point of the national conservative political movement ahead of the 2024 election.” It was an opportunity for BFA interviews with Ben Bergquam, the founder of Frontline America and correspondent for Real America’s Voice News, Libby Emmons, Editor in Chief of the Human Events Media Group and Roger Stone, one-time adviser to former U.S. President Donald Trump

Ben Bergquam

On his Frontline America website, Ben Bergquam describes himself as “a Christian conservative husband, father, son, and brother who loves this country and the values it was founded on. I am an unashamed, politically incorrect, social conservative that believes that abortion is murder, homosexuality is what the bible says it is, there are only two genders and you don’t get to pick.”

In his recent BFA interview, he warned that “the northern border of the U.S. is kind of the new no man’s land, the new frontier partly because of what’s happening at our southern border. The Sinaloa cartel, in particular, operates not just in Mexico in every major metropolitan area across our country and in Canada. What’s happening on our northern border is a direct result of what’s happening on our southern border.”

New Hampshire, Vermont and New York are basically unmanned, he said. “There are a few border crossings, a few customs checkpoints at the border but otherwise there’s no wall, there’s no Border Patrol.  I went to the New York border and I saw three Border Patrol agents outside of checkpoints or ports of entry.” Bergquam said he talked with one Border Patrol agent who couldn’t go on camera but said that illegals “just flow across every day, they actually flow in both directions so you have illegals in America that are working with the cartels taking money back across to Canada to be laundered. 

Libby Emmons

“I think anything is possible leading up to this election right now. We have Joe Biden who is being made fun of by world leaders for being essentially a sunsetting old man who can’t figure out what’s going on,” Libby Emmons said. However, in her interview, she explained that she supports whoever our president is “because I support the nation and I want us to do well. But it’s very scary to see what’s happening with President Biden right now.” She added that it’s also scary to see the “pushback” from the Democratic Party. “They’re perfectly happy to just cover it up, to protect their own reigns on power. We have Trump being sentenced in New York and anything could happen there. We saw Steve Bannon saying at the convention that he thinks that they are going to put Trump in jail. But I have a lot of people telling me, no, they’re going to do house arrest, they’re going to do nothing, it’s going to be a slap on the wrist.”

Emmons noted that “I don’t know if there’s that many voters who are undecided. And that’s what I think is so interesting about this conference is it’s really saying, you have friends and family who support Trump, just make sure they vote.  If they all vote, we’re in good shape. And if they don’t, then that’s what the problem is. So we’re really at such a crux in this country with two diametrically opposed sides.  Democrats will come out saying Trump says he’s going to do mass deportations and then you have conservatives going I’m already voting for him.

Roger Stone

He’s a long-time political strategist but some call him a “political icon,” but Roger Stone is best known as a longtime Donald Trump adviser and Trump-loyalist. 

In his interview at the People’s Convention he warned that “one of the things the Democrats are going to try to do as the presidential elections approach is to scare people about Social Security. They’re going to tell you that Donald Trump wants to extend the age before you can get your Social Security benefits and that he wants to cut your benefits based on any income you have outside Social Security.”

As Stone described it, “It is a lie. That is not Donald Trump’s position. There may be some small subset of House Republicans in safe districts who want to do that. That is not Donald Trump’s position. That will not happen under a Trump presidency. Wait and see. They’re going to try to scare people.”

However, he said, it is “one of the things the Democrats are going to try to do in order to scare people about Social Security. They’re going to tell you Donald Trump wants to extend the age before you can get your your Social Security benefits and that he wants to cut your benefits based on any income you have outside Social Security. That is a lie. That is not Donald Trump’s position. That will not happen under a Trump presidency. Wait and see. They’re going to try to scare people and claim otherwise.”

John Grimaldi served on the first non-partisan communications department in the New York State Assembly and is a founding member of the Board of Directors of Priva Technologies, Inc. He has served for more than thirty years as a Trustee of Daytop Village Foundation, which oversees a worldwide drug rehabilitation network.
