About the California Political News and Views

The original California Political News and Views (CPNV) started in the early 1990’s, as a faxed document sent once a week to about 200 people. It was then called “Frankly Speaking”. By the late 1990’s it was sent to several thousand subscribers.

The purpose of the CPNV is to provide information the mainstream media either downplays, misleads or denies existing. You will note that we seldom use mainstream media—like the Times (any variety) Chronicle, Bee (any city) the OC Register, etc.

This is exclusive created, each day by Stephen Frank, a long time political activist and now consultant. He started in 1960 working for Richard Nixon for President, moved on to Goldwater in 1964 and Reagan for Governor in 1966.

He then spent two years in the Army, including a tour of duty in Viet Nam, with the First Infantry Division (Big Red One). After coming home Steve became state Chairman Youth for Nixon, replacing Dan Lungren who was on his way to law school.

Then he, along with Bob Dornan created the POW/MIA bracelet. He spent seven years, full time working on behalf of the families of these men, including opening over 100 offices nationwide, met with representatives of the North Vietnamese, Khmer Rouge, Viet Cong and others to gain release of the POW’s.

For the past 50 years he has worked on behalf of conservative, constitutional candidates, from water districts to president. He founded the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, past president of the California Republican Assembly, past board member of the California Republican Party, and many other political positions.

He also served for several years as Chairman of the Girl Scout Councils of California, Board president of Travelers Aid Society of Los Angeles and numerous other charitable , and community organizations.

Now, is he the publisher and editor of the California Political News and Views, speaks all over California and appears as a guest on several radio shows each week. He has also served as a guest host on radio talk shows. He is also a fulltime political consultant.

The goal of the California Political News and Views is to challenge its’ readers to action. It is not enough to know what is going on, readers need to act on the information.
