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...

GOP Establishment Targets Trump

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, November 23, 2015:  

The latest poll results from Rasmussen weren’t cheered by the GOP establishment, which has been holding its breath for months, hoping that the front runner would fade and allow someone more willing to toe the establishment’s line to come to the fore.

The poll, taken last week, wasn’t encouraging:

Democrat Strategy to Take Back the Senate: Attack the Koch Brothers

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, November 20, 2015:  

Upon learning that the Koch brothers, Charles (shown) and David, and their network of conservative donors, were planning on spending upwards of $750 million over the next two election cycles, Harry Reid, the Senate minority leader and harsh critic of the Kochs, enlisted the help of two hard-left political strategists to respond. David Brock, the founder of Media Matters in 2004 and the super-PAC American Bridge in 2010, joined with Geoff Garin, president of Hart Research Associates, to build a plan for Democrats to take back the Senate in 2016.

Brock investigates strategy via focus groups while Garin

Black Lives Matter, NAACP Exploit Minnesota Shooting

Minneapolis Police Department badge

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 18, 2015: 

Within hours of the shooting of Jamar Clark by Minnesota police early Sunday morning, revolutionary groups NAACP and Black Lives Matter had rounded up an estimated 300 people and sufficiently aroused them to block the northbound lanes of Interstate 94, which runs through the city. The lanes were blocked from 6:45 p.m. until after 9 p.m. when most of them had left the scene, leaving a smaller group of protestors in place. Police tried to re-route the traffic, which was backed up for miles, down an embankment, but protestors pummeled the cars with bricks and, when an officer attempted to arrest one of those remaining, he was punched in the face.

Eventually more than 50 were arrested on misdemeanor charges and released when bail was met.

The incident involving Clark began following a physical altercation he had with his girlfriend in front of an apartment complex just after midnight on Sunday. She was beaten so badly that

How Sweet It Isn’t: Rubio Backs Big Sugar and His Donors

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, November 13, 2015:  

So far Marco Rubio has avoided having a debate moderator ask him about his support for Big Sugar, the U.S. sugar program that costs Americans billions of dollars every year either directly in their cereal bowl or indirectly through their income taxes. But he did try to defend himself at a small gathering of Heritage Action earlier this summer, with little success. He stated:

Fourth Republican Debate: Feisty, Hilarious, Little Change in Polls

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 11, 2015:  

A more orderly and respectful atmosphere surrounded the fourth Republican debate on Tuesday night, a sharp contrast to last month’s debate where the moderators became the issue. That didn’t mean there were no fireworks, or disagreements, just that the tone was more serious, as the candidates tried to shore up their positions and their poll numbers as they approached the final debate in December.

The topics included questions on

Is Ben Carson’s Campaign “Over”?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, November 9, 2015:  

Ben Wright of CNBC thinks Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s campaign is done, toast, over after several attacks leveled against him by the mainstream media, particularly calling into question Carson’s honesty regarding events in his book Gifted Hands. Calling one of the attacks a “devastating blow to Carson,” Wright asked, “The main question now is whether the revelation(s) will quickly drive Carson out of the race. And if it does, where will his cadre of supporters go?”

Wright claimed that

Rubio’s Donors Reveal His Support of a Different Agenda

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, November 6, 2015:  

With the recent revelation that Senator Marco Rubio has been receiving, and is actively soliciting, funds from billionaires with vastly different agendas from those voters who elected him in 2010, many are questioning how he would act if he were elected president.

With the departure of Scott Walker from the Republican cast of candidates seeking their party’s nomination, and with the virtual disappearance of a presence in the polls by establishment candidate Jeb Bush, it was no surprise that Rubio’s star began its ascendancy. As Paul Singer, one of Rubio’s wealthy donors, wrote, Rubio

Is Bloomberg’s Anti-gun Money Becoming Toxic?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, November 5, 2015:  

In its post-mortem on the Virginia State Senate races decided on Tuesday, the Washington Post nearly ran out of adjectives in describing the extent of the loss suffered by anti-gun Governor Terry McAuliffe and his anti-gun financier, Michael Bloomberg (shown above): “Their aggressive advocacy in a pivotal [state] Senate race in the Richmond area may have backfired by producing a pro-Republican backlash.… [Democrat Daniel] Gecker’s loss was the key setback in an election that tarnished McAuliffe’s reputation as a political wizard.… [McAuliffe] gambled big and lost.”

McAuliffe wasn’t just gambling with his own money, either.

Media Bias on Full Display Wednesday Night

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, October 30, 2015: 

When Charles Krauthammer appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show immediately following the Republican debate in Boulder, Colorado, Wednesday night, he could scarcely contain himself. He called the performance by CNBC’s “moderators” of the debate “the most appalling performance … that I can remember seeing in a debate … they were, in the end, obnoxious.”

Each of them – John Harwood, Becky Quick, and Carl Quintanilla – are, said Krauthammer,

Just a visit between old friends

In Washington, it is said that laws are like sausages: no one wants to know exactly how they are made. Washington, controlled as it has been by the Establishment for decades, makes laws like sausages, keeping everyone in the dark and happy, except the taxpayer.

Just who is this ephemeral, invisible, ever-present establishment? In three minutes, a caller to Rush Limbaugh’s radio show on September 15, nailed it:

Articles of Impeachment Issued Against IRS Commissioner

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, October 28, 2015:  

In its attempt to get to the bottom of the Tea Party targeting scandal, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee introduced articles of impeachment on Tuesday against IRS Commissioner John Koskinen for lying, stalling, and deceiving Congress.

Koskinen was sold to the Senate as the one to break open and expose the scandal, promising to restore the IRS’s heavily damaged credibility. The Senate confirmed him as head of the IRS in December 2013, 59-36, and he took over as acting director in May 2013.

Almost from the beginning Koskinen has been, to put it charitably,

Boehner Cuts Deal With White House; National Debt to Reach $20 Trillion

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 27, 2015:

After working privately over the past several weeks with members of the White House staff, as well as with Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner succeeded late Monday night in cobbling together a deal that gives everyone in Washington what they want but leaves the bill for the taxpayer. By the time the dust settles, the deal will cause the country’s national debt to reach $20 trillion within the next 18 months, if not sooner.

Doing an end run around usual House procedures, Boehner

Government Investigates Itself, Declares Itself Innocent

The key foundational principles upon which the American Republic is built include “checks and balances” and an “informed electorate” made up of moral citizens who care about their country and their freedoms. The Encyclopedia Britannica explains that the three powers of government – executive, legislative, and judicial – are separated in order “to prevent actions by the other branches,” which, if combined, define tyranny. In the United States, states are squared off against the national government as another check and balance.

John Adams said, however, that the Constitutional limitations work only “for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Hillary Clinton’s brief coughing spell near the end of her marathon 11-hour-long grilling over Benghazi on Thursday was probably nothing. After all, the national media scarcely mentioned it, and after a minute or so, following her taking a cough drop, she was back to answering questions from the committee.

Some, however, were reminded of author Ed Klein’s disclosures in his latest book, Unlikeable: The Problem With Hillary in which he pointed out numerous

“Truth” Nowhere Close to the Truth

1st Lt. George W. Bush in the Texas National Guard

Touted as a film showing how hard journalists work to get the story right before putting it on the air, Truth is based on Mary Mapes’ self-justifying view of her role in “Rathergate,” which cost her, and CBS Evening News host Dan Rather, their jobs and tarnished their reputations.

For years Mapes had harbored the hope that she could prove that George W. Bush, as a member of the Texas National Guard, had joined the Guard (thanks to help from family friends) as a way to avoid going to Vietnam. As a principal producer for CBS News, primarily for the primetime television program 60 Minutes Wednesday, hosted by Rather, she was delighted to learn, in August 2004, just months before the presidential election, that the proof existed in documents provided by an insider at the Texas National Guard.

She rushed to get the story on the air, calling in advance a top official of John Kerry’s campaign to tell him the good news.

Those documents were, it was later learned, forgeries.

Appeals Court Upholds New York, Connecticut “Assault Weapons” Bans

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 20, 2015:  

On Monday a three-judge panel of the Second Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled unanimously that bans on possession of “assault weapons” by New York and Connecticut did not infringe on rights of citizens in those states guaranteed under the Second Amendment.

According to Tom King, the president of the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, one of the numerous plaintiffs bringing the complaint, the decision was expected, was no surprise, and will be appealed:
