Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

U.S. Condemns Venezuela’s Election

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 17, 2017:

On Monday, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert stated the U.S. government’s official position on Venezuela’s Sunday elections: “We condemn the lack of free and fair elections yesterday in Venezuela. The voice of the Venezuelan people was not heard.” She added that there had been “last minute changes to polling station locations without public notice, manipulation of ballot layouts, and limited availability of voting machines in opposition neighborhoods.” In addition, independent credible outside monitors of the elections were prohibited from overseeing the election process by Marxist dictator Nicolás Maduro’s (shown) regime.

Independent polls showed that opposition candidates in the 23 state mayoral elections should have crushed the regime’s candidates, but instead

Here’s What 100 FBI Agents Know About the Las Vegas Shooter

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 9, 2017:

It’s been a week since Stephen Paddock shot and killed nearly 60 people at a concert in Las Vegas and wounded another 500 before taking his own life. Since then, 100 FBI agents and other investigators have been combing Paddock’s background to try to determine a motive. After spending thousands of man-hours searching his computers, residence, hotel room, vehicles, and banking connections, and checking into his mental health records, criminal behavior, and finances, they have uncovered an immense amount of information. They have interviewed hotel employees and viewed hours of videotape from hotel surveillance cameras. They’ve learned a lot, but they still don’t have a motive.

And now they’re asking the public for help.

A surprising poll published Saturday by the Washington-based Winston Group found that in a single month — from late August to late September — fan support for the National Football League melted away following the kneeling protests. Once America’s favorite sport, NFL football is now “the least liked of top professional and college sports,” according to Winston.

The numbers are pitiful:

After Thousands of Hours Investigating Las Vegas Shooter’s Background, FBI Still Doesn’t Know Why

English: FBI agents from the Washington Field ...

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, October 9, 2017:  

Officially there are 100 FBI agents working the case against Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter. That doesn’t count amateur sleuths, local police, the BATFE, and the Justice Department. After thousands of man hours, they have come up with: nada.

They found what they hoped was his suicide note. It turned out to be undecipherable, “significant to the gunman” but to no one else. They uncovered video of him driving to a public shooting range just outside Mesquite where he lived. But further investigation revealed that he never fired a single round from any of his “bump stock” rifles.

They checked into his prescription for Valium hoping that they could pin his murderous behavior on its “aggressive behavior” side effects. But

NRA’s Surprising Capitulation on Gun Regulations Met With Outrage

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, October 6, 2017: 

The NRA is widely regarded as a staunch defender of the Second Amendment. Its capitulation on so-called “bump fire stocks” shows otherwise.

The statement from the National Rifle Association (NRA) issued on Thursday was carefully crafted to make it appear that the NRA remained a staunch defender of gun rights while it simultaneously promoted further breaches of those same rights. The statement was divided into three parts:

Many Unanswered Questions About Las Vegas Shooting

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, October 4, 2017:

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock starting shooting at exactly 10:08 p.m. on Sunday night. A SWAT team entered his room at 11:21 p.m., reporting that Paddock had taken his own life just moments before. That’s 73 minutes between the start of the shooting and the shooter’s demise.

Chris Bethel, an Iraq War veteran, was in his room just two floors below when he heard the gunfire erupt and called the front desk, but no one answered. Said Bethel,

Las Vegas Massacre: Gun-control Agenda Already Being Pushed

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 2, 2017: 

English: The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas Sign

Here is what is known thus far: The shooter, Stephen Craig Paddock, age 64, a former resident of Mesquite, Nevada, launched an attack on an unsuspecting crowd of 22,000 people at the Route 91 Harvest Festival across the street from where he had rented a room in Las Vegas. The attack began just a few minutes after 10 p.m. local time Sunday night, and ended less than 15 minutes afterwards when Paddock took his own life as police were entering his room.

At least 58 concert attendees were killed and more than 500 of them wounded, some injured during the melee following the attack.

The room that Paddock rented his at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino beginning last Thursday was strategically placed so that he had a full view of the concert’s crowd. There were 10 semi-automatic rifles in his room along with many rounds of ammunition. The rifles used in the attack did not have suppressors as noted by members of crowd who said they heard “fireworks,” “firecrackers,” and a “pop-pop-pop” as Paddock sprayed the crowd. The police said nothing about any of the rifles used in the attack having sniper scopes on them, even though the crowd was at least 300 feet away from Paddock when he started shooting.

When Paddock’s brother Eric, who lives in Florida, was notified of the attack, he was flummoxed, saying that it caught him and his family completely by surprise:

Somehow, more than 53,000 students attending Texas public universities have managed to make it through the first year of concealed-carry on campus without murdering each other. Heaven knows that if there had been even one shooting incident, the anti-gun media would not only have put it on the front page of every newspaper in the country but would have made it the lead story on the six-o’clock news.

Instead, the Denton Record-Chronicle had to ask the University of North Texas Police Chief if there had been any shooting incidents among UNT’s 38,000 students since the campus-carry law became effective last year. Said the chief:

Jury Punishes JPMorgan With $4 Billion in Damages for Mishandling $20 Million Estate

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 27, 2017:

English: Category:JPMorgan Chase

Attorneys for the widow and children of Max Hopper, the developer of the SABRE reservation software used by American Airlines, wanted to deliver a message to JPMorgan. On Tuesday they got their wish. Their attorneys announced that not only did the six-member jury award them nearly $5 million in actual damages, plus another $5 million to cover their legal fees for bringing a lawsuit against the bank, the jury doubled what the family wanted in punitive damages. They wanted to make an impression on the bank that would be heard all way from Dallas to 270 Park Avenue, New York City, the bank’s headquarters.

The jurors, apparently so outraged after listening to the bank’s fraudulent, negligent, and malicious behavior toward Hopper’s widow and two children, decided to

Congressional Democrat Takes a Knee to Protest Trump

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 26, 2017:

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), who represents the liberal 18th Congressional District in central Houston, took a knee on the House floor on Monday. She claimed she was protesting the president’s calling for the firing of NFL players who refused to stand during the playing of the national anthem. She claimed she was in “solidarity” with them, and called the president’s comments “racist.”

Lee does that. A lot. To Lee, who is black, nearly everything that anyone does is racist, or can be twisted into making it sound racist. Lee has made a fool of herself ever since she was elected to the House in 1994 and immediately joined both the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Here’s what the president said that provided Lee with the opportunity. He was speaking at a political rally on Friday:

Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 18, 2017:

The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation that the gun found in Smith’s Buick that night was deliberately planted there by Stockley.

It didn’t matter that Judge Timothy Wilson has ruled both for and against the police during his 28 years on the bench. It didn’t matter that he is highly regarded by his peers, that he is viewed as an unbiased judge who has no ideological ax to grind except to get the facts straight and make the decision proper under the circumstances.

None of that mattered. Once Wilson’s decision was filed late Friday afternoon, the BLM rioters and their useful idiots brought out their pre-printed signs and started destroying property. When police arrived to quell the unrest, BLM thugs and others encouraged by them started attacking the police.

Much of the mainstream media have been willing — too willing — to uncritically circulate the anti-cop narrative that a white police officer should have been found guilty of murder for killing a supposedly unarmed black man, without including in their news accounts the evidence showing otherwise. Put simply: The white cop was guilty. Guilty. GUILTY! Let the rioting begin!

Yet the facts in the case tell a different story.

And the facts were examined by more than just Judge Wilson.

The FBI investigated the shooting right after it occurred, and never filed charges. The Civil Rights Division of Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) investigated, and never filed charges. An internal investigation by the St. Louis Police Department revealed that Stockley violated a rule that had nothing to do with the case, and sanctioned him for that. No other charges were filed against Stockley until the spring of 2016, more than five years after the incident, when then-Circuit Court Attorney Jennifer Joyce charged Stockley with first degree murder and armed criminal action by allegedly planting a gun in Smith’s vehicle.

For Judge Wilson, his ruling is clear: Stockley is innocent of both charges and he is now free to get on with the rest of his life. Said Stockley, after learning that the charges against him had been dismissed, “It feels like a burden has been lifted … my main concern now is for the first responders [in St. Louis],  the people just trying to go to work and the protesters. I don’t want anyone to be hurt in any way over this.”

Wilson is held in high regard in St. Louis. Jack Garvey, a lawyer and former judge himself, told the St. Louis Dispatch: “He’s very methodical and a very objective judge. He really will review everything before be makes a decision. I don’t think he’s ideological in any way. He just takes each case as they come to him.” Joel Schwartz, a defense attorney, added: “He’s been in St. Louis and has seen thousands of cases and understands evidence … my feeling on Judge Wilson is he’s a man who will do the right thing.” Another defense lawyer in St. Louis, Terence Neihoff, said: “Over the years he’s been remarkably consistent. He doesn’t just automatically believe the police.”

In his decision, Judge Wilson began by reviewing the constraints under which he operates: “A judge shall not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor or fear of criticism”, adding that “a fair, impartial and independent judiciary requires that judges decide cases according to the law and facts, without regard to whether particular laws or litigants are popular or unpopular with the public, the media, government officials, or the judge’s friends or family.”

Wilson then described what happened. When Stockley and another officer, Brian Bianchi, exited their police vehicle to investigate a suspected drug transaction in a parking lot,  “Smith rapidly pulled forward … then frantically drove his Buick backward into the marked police vehicle twice, before speeding away at a high rate of speed.” Stockley testified that before the Buick exited the parking lot, he heard Bianchi yell “gun,” “indicating Smith had a gun in the car,” and that he (Stockley) also saw a gun. Stockley was struck in the arm by Wilson as he fled.

Stockley and Bianchi got back into their vehicle and pursued Smith, who, Wilson recounted in his decision, “drove at speeds up to 87 miles per hour, on wet roads, endangering other drivers and pedestrians. The pursuit ended when Smith drove into oncoming traffic and was bumped from behind by the police vehicle being driven by Brian Bianchi.”

Stockley got out of the police vehicle and approached Smith, who was still in the Buick. Wilson described what happened next:

Stockley told Smith to “show me your hands” repeatedly, but Smith continued reaching around [inside his vehicle]. Suddenly, Smith’s demeanor changed, around fifteen seconds after Stockley reached the driver’s window, when Smith reached between the seats, and Stockley said he thought Smith had retrieved the gun.

 

Stockley reached for his [service revolver] and stepped back because he was scared Smith would pull up his hand and shoot him. Stockley then fired several shots at Smith, which ultimately resulted in Smith’s death.

 

Judge Wilson reiterated what the dashcam video from the police cruiser, along with other video testimony provided by observers that night, revealed:

Stockley approached the driver’s side, appeared to attempt to open the door and, as testified to by the State’s own witnesses, ordered Smith to open the door and to show his hands. Stockley also warned another officer to “watch his hands.” It was not until fifteen seconds after Stockley arrived at the driver’s side door, that he unholstered his service revolver and fired several shots in succession.

What about the “planting” charge? DNA evidence indicated that Stocley had touched the gun, but Wilson noted that Stockley quite properly unloaded Smith’s weapon after the shooting, placing the empty firearm and the rounds on the passenger seat. Of course, if Wilson had actually planted the gun, as opposed to rendering the gun safe, he would have had to bring it to Wilson’s car to begin with. Regarding this scenario, Wilson concluded that, if the gun were planted, Wilson would have been observed with the gun. Wilson wrote:

Stockley can be seen on all sides while walking around the two vehicles [the Buick and adjacent police vehicle]. Stockley does not have a jacket on over his blue police uniform. There is no gun, other than his holstered service revolver, visible in his hands, in his pockets or tucked inside his belt, and there is no bulge from a gun in any pocket.

Later in his decision, Wilson added:

The gun [found in the car] was a full size revolver and not a small gun, such as a derringer, that can fit in the palm of one’s hand or into the side pocket on a pair of pants without vbeing obvious. Stockley was not wearing a jacket; if he had such a gun in his possession it would have been visible on the cell phone video. The gun was too large to fit entirely within any of the pockets on the pants he was wearing, there was no bulge in any pocket indicating a gun within the pocket, and the gun would have been visible if it was tucked into his belt.

Also, Wilson noted that “one obvious question the State made no attempt to answer was how Anthony Smith could have been short in the left lower abdomen by a person standing outside the car if Smith was simply sitting in the driver’s seat.” Wilson then referred to expert testimony of the doctor who conducted the autopsy, who “testified that the wounds in Smith’s left flank could indicate that Smith was reaching for something to his right at the time the wounds occurred.”

The state argued that a statement made by Wilson, and captured on audio, during the high-speed chase indicated that Officer Stockley intended to kill Smith. However, Wilson reasoned in his decision:

Commencing in the parking … when Anthony Smith rammed into the police vehicle twice, and then struck Stockley’s arm with the car while fleeing, officers Bianchi and Stockley were involved in a dangerous high speed pursuit. It is apparent from the dash cam audio and video that the pursuit was stressful both from the high speed nature of the pursuit and from confusion casued by the multiple radios and communications with a dispatcher. People say all kinds of things in stressful situations, and whether Stockley’s statement that “we’re killing this m*****f*****,” which can be ambiguous depending on the context, constituted a real threat of action or was a means of releasing tension has to be judged by his subsequent conduct.

Wislson concluded: “The Court does not believe Stockley’s conduct immediatley following the end of the pursuit is consistent with the conduct of a person intentionally killing another person unlawfully,” elaborating:

Stockley did not approach the Buick and immediately shoot Smith multiple times…. Stockley approached the driver’s side, appeared to attempt to open the door and, as testified to by the State’s own witnessess, ordered Smith to open the door and to show his hands. Stockley also warned another officer to “watch his hands.” It was not until fifteen seconds after Stockley arrived at the driver’s side door, that he unholstered his service revolver and fired several shots in succession.

At the end of his 30-page ruling, Wilson “decreed that the State has failed in its burden of proof and the Court finds that defendant is not guilty of both charges in this case: murder first degree and armed criminal action.”

As noted above, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter radicals. What matters is that a white cop shot a black man and a judge found the cop to be innocent. That narrative is all that is necessary to justify rioting, looting, firing stores and businesses and attacking police trying to quell the violence. In its war against the police, BLM radicals will use any excuse to light the match.

“You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists)”

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, September 15, 2017:  

The Australian physician, Dr. Fred Schwarz, filled the Los Angeles Sports Arena from August 28 through September 1, 1961 – capacity 16,000 – to hear him and other speakers expose the communist conspiracy. He educated millions, and his book You Can Trust the Communists (to be Communists) sold well over a million copies. As Morrie Ryskind, a journalist for the Los Angeles Times, wrote at the time: “I can honestly say that in my 25 years in Los Angeles I have never known a local event that so completely captured the enthusiasm for the city.”

Schwarz founded and was active in his Christian Anti-Communist Crusade into his late 80s, passing away at age 96 in 2009.

Schwarz would have recognized the ploys the Chinese communists are using to extract high-technology from the United States by any means whatsoever. In their effort to overtake American technology, China is following a 10-year plan to

A nurse in Utah and a couple in Texas stood up for their rights as guaranteed to them in the Bill of Rights. The Utah nurse hasn’t filed suit, but the Texas couple did, and in both cases law-enforcement officials have been exposed and shamed for their illegal conduct. Both cases were aided with the help of videos taken of the incidents.

The first has caught national attention and has stirred national outrage. On July 26 Alex Wubbels was on duty as head nurse of the University of Utah Hospital’s burn unit when a truck driver was wheeled in suffering from severe burns. He had been hit by a driver fleeing police and was comatose when he arrived in the ER.

Rahm Emanuel Declares Chicago “Trump-free Zone”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 6, 2017:

On the first day of school Chicago Mayor Rahm “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste” Emanuel welcomed students back from summer break to Solorio Academy High School, giving them comfort that, under his administration, they won’t be deported for being in the country illegally. His comments were timed perfectly to respond to President Trump’s declaration that the Obama administration’s illegal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — DACA — was being terminated. It is estimated that about a third of the students attending Solorio are in the country illegally.

Said Mayor Emanuel, “To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about. Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as it relates to what President Trump said, will be a Trump-free zone. You have nothing to worry about. And I want you to know this, and I want your families to know this. And rest assured, I want you to come to school … and pursue your dreams.”

Comfort to those stressed about the possibility of being deported was extended to them by Chicago’s CEO Forrest Claypool as well:

Morris Dees is Using SPLC to Achieve His Goal: To Become “Independently Rich”

The new center being build by the SPLC

From the very beginning, Dees wanted to get rich and it didn’t matter to him how. As his business partner Millard Fuller recalled: “Morris and I … shared the overriding purpose of making a pile of money. We were not particular about how we did it, we just wanted to be independently rich.”

They started by direct marketing the sale of cookbooks and related items. But everything changed when they were able to purchase George McGovern’s mailing list of 700,000 names of liberals following his failed campaign for the presidency in 1972. They found that McGovern liberals were outraged over “southern poverty,” and with that outrage, coupled with Dees’ writing skills, they could rake in millions.

The breakthrough for them came in 1984 when Dees

News that Morris Dee’s Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) transferred some $5 million offshore in 2014 caught many by surprise. For example, tax expert Amy Sterling Casil, CEO of the nonprofit consulting firm Pacific Human Capital, upon learning of the transactions, said:

I’ve never known a U.S.-based nonprofit dealing in human rights or social services to have any foreign bank accounts.… I am stunned to learn of transfers of millions to offshore bank accounts.

 

It is a huge red flag and would [be] completely unacceptable to any wealthy, responsible, experienced board member who was committed to a charitable mission who I ever worked with.

 

It is unethical for any U.S.-based charity to invest large sums overseas. I know of no legitimate reason for any U.S.-based nonprofit to put money in overseas, unregulated bank accounts.

Apparently Casil has been away. Dees is simply fulfilling his life-long goal to become wealthy, and SPLC is his tool to accomplish it. Dee’s original business partner, Millard Fuller, recalled,
