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...

Terry McAuliffe’s Long Romance with the Clintons

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, May 25, 2016:  

One of the perks of having a long, close personal and financial relationship with the Clintons is freedom from prosecution. When informed that the FBI was investigating him for violating campaign finance laws, Terry McAuliffe (shown), Virginia’s governor and FOB (friend of Bill’s), expressed surprise but said, through his lawyer, that he would cooperate whenever they got around to contacting him about it.

McAuliffe’s been there before, probably before some of the investigators were even born. The Department of Justice first began investigating McAuliffe’s deals back in

Anonymous “U.S. officials” informed CNN on Monday that the FBI has been investigating Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (shown) for possibly violating campaign finance rules. Even though it was said to be “ongoing,” McAuliffe’s attorney, Marc Elias, said neither he nor the governor knew anything about the investigation but they “will certainly cooperate” if and when they are contacted about it.

One of the specific donations under scrutiny is a $120,000 contribution from

This photo depicts Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Donald Trump had, simply put, an amazing week. With two billionaires already endorsing him (T. Boone Pickens and Sheldon Adelson), he added several more, including one with enormous credibility in Republican circles. To top it off he was endorsed by the NRA at its annual convention Friday night even before he got to the podium.

Hillary Clinton, on the other hand,

Another Good Ole Boy Likely to Get Off

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, May 20, 2016:

John Koskinen is a true blue blood, a Yale- and Cambridge-graduate, a professional political animal who has dipped his cup into the river of taxpayer monies for so long he wouldn’t know what sweet pure private water tastes like. A former chief exec at Freddie Mac before being sworn in as IRS commissioner in December 2013, Koskinen served as Deputy Director for Management of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under Clinton, and then later became Chairman of the President’s Council on Y2K, the president’s answer to the Year 2000 “problem” that was fixed by private enterprise. He served as an AA to liberal Connecticut Democrat Senator Abraham Ribicoff and New York City Mayor John Lindsay. He also served as Deputy Director of the National Advisory Commission on Civil Disorders (aka the Kerner Commission) and clerked for the chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

And so when he was dropped into the middle of the IRS targeting scandal, he was right at home. Promising all manner of efforts to clean house, right the ship, regain credibility, etc., etc., the first order of business was to

Endorsements of Trump by Billionaires May Open Other GOP Wallets

Sheldon Adelson, chairman of Las Vegas Sands and Hong Kong-listed subsidiary Sands China.

Last week T. Boone Pickens, chairman of hedge fund BP Capital Management and with a personal net worth estimated at about a billion dollars, endorsed Donald Trump and offered to host some fundraisers for him.

The big news came on Friday when Sheldon Adelson (shown), chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation and with a personal net worth estimated at more than $25 billion, published his endorsement of Donald Trump in the Washington Post. That was followed up by revelations from insiders to the New York Times that he will put his money where his mouth is, to the tune of $100 million. That’s an amount equal to the total Adelson contributed to 34 Republican campaigns in 2012, only this year he will be focusing his largesse almost exclusively on getting Trump elected in November.

Adelson explained his reasoning and urged other Republicans to get on board as well:

A Hundred Million Dollars Just Isn’t What It Used To Be

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, May 16, 2016:  

Blame the Federal Reserve. Or better yet blame the political elections, which H.L. Mencken considered as “advance auctions of stolen goods.”

It now takes a billion dollars just to lose an election. That’s why Hillary Clinton has such an advantage, at least at the moment. A month ago the New York Times reported that, so far, Clinton has raised $262 million for her campaign compared to Trump’s $51 million. In 2012 the presidential campaign (not counting primaries) cost Obama’s and Romney’s campaigns $2.6 billion and, according to Investopedia, 2016 is likely to shatter that record, perhaps touching $3 billion, or even more.

So the announcement last week that T. Boone Pickens (a modest billionaire, if there is such an animal) endorsed Donald Trump for president and even offered to host some fund raisers for him, was Page Three news.

What hit the headlines on Friday, however, was

“Party Unification” Touted Following Trump-Ryan Meeting

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerica.com on Friday, May 13, 2016:  

European Council on Foreign Relations

Part of the transgenerational cabal seeking to impose the New World Order

“Unification” appeared to be the underlying theme of the conversation between Donald Trump (and his aides) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (and his aides) on Thursday, according to their joint statement issued afterwards:

While we were honest about our few differences, we recognize there are many important areas of common ground. We will be having additional discussions but remain confident [that] there’s a great opportunity to unify our party and win this fall and we are totally committed to working together to achieve that goal.… This was our first meeting but it was a very positive step toward unification.

Later Ryan said that this “unification” process is going to take awhile: “This is a process. It takes a little time. You don’t put it together in 45 minutes.… I don’t want us to have a fake unification process here.”

Trump tweeted afterward:

Unnerving Parallels: the U.S. and Brazil

Two news items hit the wires at nearly the same time: Early Thursday morning, following a marathon 20-hour overnight session, Brazil’s upper house voted to try President Rousseff on charges that she cooked the books while running for reelection in order to hide the country’s dreadful financial condition.

The other was the claim that James Comey, director of the FBI, said he has never heard of a “security review,” that he didn’t know what those words meant, and that

Hillary Loses West Virginia to Sanders, Ties With Trump in Key States

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 11, 2016:  

Hillary Clinton’s loss to Bernie Sanders in West Virginia’s primary on Tuesday did little to change her trajectory toward her party’s nomination in July in Philadelphia, but the fact she is still having to expend resources and energy in a battle she should have won long ago is taking its toll.

Exit polls following the primary illustrate the point:

Gun Sales Set Records, Likely to Continue

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, May 6, 2016:

According to the FBI, more than two million gun-purchase background checks were conducted in April, 400,000 more than in April a year ago. In fact, every month since last May, background checks have set new records, putting 2016 on track to beat 2015 for the number of checks conducted by the National Instate Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

In its report the FBI noted that there is no direct one-to-one correlation between background checks and gun sales, but it’s close. Especially if one tracks the performance of stocks of Sturm Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson in the last 12 months.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz exited the Republican presidential race humbly once he realized that Donald Trump was likely to take every one of Indiana’s 57 delegates in Tuesday’s primary contest, stating.

From the beginning, I’ve said I’d continue on as long as there is a viable path to victory. Tonight, I’m sorry to say, it appears the path has been foreclosed.

 

Together we left it all on the field in Indiana. We gave it everything we’ve got. But the voters chose another path. And so, with heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.

Donald Trump was gracious in accepting Cruz’s decision:

A Closer Look at the Man Behind California’s Anti-gun Ballot Initiative

Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom

It’s often helpful to look into the background of a politician promoting a ballot issue on the chance that that look might reveal a hidden agenda. So it appears with California’s Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. Last year he announced that he was creating a petition for some anti-gun legislation that, if successful, would appear on this year’s November ballot. Last week he announced that he had secured 600,000 signatures for his petition, more than enough for it to be on the ballot.

The agenda is right in line with the anti-gun mentality expressed by

Are Voters Beginning to Reject Obama’s and Clinton’s Gun Control Agenda?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, May 2, 2016:  

For months now national polls of likely voters in November have given Hillary Clinton high single- or low double-digit leads over Donald Trump, allowing Clinton to push her anti-gun agenda with impunity. She bragged last week on MSNBC that, once elected, she would take on the gun rights crowd (read: NRA, GOA, JPFO, The 2A Foundation, the NAGR, the CCRKBA, etc.) from the very first day:

Trump: I’m Now Running Against “Crooked Hillary”

As a basketball player plants his pivot foot to the floor, allowing him to move away from danger and toward opportunity, Donald Trump has pivoted his campaign away from further dialogue with and attacks on Ted Cruz and John Kasich and toward his increasingly obvious opponent in the general election, Hillary Clinton.

Some are calling it a master stroke, basing his pivot on the assumption that

Hillary Says Americans “Have Just Too Many Guns”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, April 22, 2016:  

During a campaign event in Philadelphia on Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leaned into her favorite topic, gun control: “When it comes to guns, we have just too many guns on the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods,” she insisted.

Then she added that the reason there are so many guns is the success of the “gun lobby” in keeping Congress from passing more laws to restrict their ownership:

Opposition Gearing Up to Colo. Single-payer Healthcare Proposal

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, April 15, 2016: 

Mark Twain is alleged to have said that “a lie can travel halfway around the world before truth can get its boots on.” In Colorado Initiative 20 is already on the ballot in November and opposition to it is just getting its boots on.

If passed, it would be the 69th amendment to Colorado’s state constitution and would collect all the state’s healthcare programs — Medicaid, children’s healthcare, and all the other state and federal healthcare programs — under one roof. It would replace ObamaCare with what supporters are calling ColoradoCare. And it would double the state’s budget in its first year.

The language of the ballot initiative question may be enough to kill it:
