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...

If Chosen as Hillary’s VP, Tim Kaine Would Be Invisible

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

Governor Tim Kaine of Virginia.

As chances continue to improve that Hillary Clinton will name Virginia Democrat Senator Tim Kaine (above) as her vice-presidential running mate later this afternoon, a closer look at the affable, non-controversial socialist reveals a man not likely to interfere with the Clinton presidency if she wins in November.

He has all the credentials of a socialist and all the charm that is sorely lacking in his would-be running mate.

Sheriff David Clarke: Blunt, Courageous, Unflappable

Anonmyous protestors pose for group picture.JPG

Sheriff David Clarke has been in law enforcement in Milwaukee for 38 years but only gained national attention in 2013 when he told his constituents that they couldn’t rely on law enforcement for protection and that they should arm themselves.

His circle of influence expanded as his “law and order” message began to resonate in light of the increasing attacks on police. He singled out Black Lives Matter as the primary mover, calling them Black Lies Matter, and calling them out for their revolutionary rhetoric and actions that were endangering police and costing more and more of them their lives.

In the last ten days Clarke has seen his influence and message expand further,

Representing Florida’s Fifth Congressional District for nearly a quarter of a century, Congresswoman Corrine Brown has had numerous brushes with the law, both inside and outside Congress. On Friday her indictment on 24 charges of milking her charity is likely to end her legislative career permanently.

Americans Flock to Gun Stores in June, Thanks to Congress

In June there were more gun purchase background checks than at any time recorded since the odious background check system was set up in 1998 as part of the Brady bill that Bill Clinton signed into law in 1994. More than two million Americans sought approval from the government to buy a firearm. Many, no doubt, involved the purchase of more than one, and most were likely driven by anxiety over Congress’s inability to fight terrorism. As Islamic terrorists zero in on America, Congress is, to put the matter kindly, flailing about in its efforts to do anything substantive over the threat.

Instead, in their desire to appear to be doing “something,” especially in an election year, they are willing to do “anything,” even if it’s counterproductive and violates precious constitutional rights of people not connected in any way with the increase in terrorism on American soil.

Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, put it well:

Ryan Reverses, Calls for Another Vote on Gun Control

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, July 6, 2016: 

Just over a week ago House Speaker Paul Ryan said neither he nor the House would be held hostage by radical Democrats staging a sit-in over demands for votes for more gun control. Now he is allowing a package of so-called “anti-terrorism” bills to come to the floor for a vote, including a bill nearly identical to one already voted down.

On June 22, Ryan dismissed the radicals’ 22-hour sit-in as a “publicity stunt” and

Within days of each other, two House Democrats — one a petty thief, the other a big-time plunderer — have had to account for their unethical behaviors. The first was forced to resign from office; the other announced his intention to retire.

Chaka Fattah, whose birth name is Arthur Davenport, represented Pennsylvania’s Second District (mostly Philadelphia and its environs) from 1995 until Thursday, June 23 when he was forced to resign. It wasn’t his idea. Fattah wanted to stay in office until the day before his sentencing on October 4, milking his position for every last penny.

A year ago July, he and four of his associates were indicted on federal charges for

Retiring Senator Harry Reid Turns on His Former Supporter, the NRA

Following the failure of any of the four gun bills presented earlier this week in the aftermath of the Orlando massacre, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (shown) told the Senate how he really feels about the National Rifle Association:

Here is a little secret for my Republican colleagues: the NRA doesn’t care about you. It doesn’t care about your constituents. It doesn’t care about the constitutional rights of its followers. The NRA and its leadership care about two things: making money for gun manufacturers and making money for the NRA.

The decades-long love affair that has benefited both the NRA and Harry Reid is now officially over. NRA spokeswoman Jennifer Baker confirmed it:

Seeing an opportunity that couldn’t be wasted, Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.) led a Progressive sit-in that brought to a halt the proceedings of the House of Representatives this week.

Lewis, a longtime radical revolutionary with Communist Party affiliations, led the sit-in, blaming it on Republicans’ unwillingness to bring to the floor a vote on expanding background checks and adding suspected terrorists to a “no fly/no-buy” watchlist. The sit-in began at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and, at its peak, numbered nearly 170 House Democrats (along with several Democrat senators) before it petered out around 3 a.m. today (Thursday).

Some called it grandstanding while others called it

Year-to-date, Background Checks Jump Nearly Three Million From 2015

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, June 8, 2016:  

The latest report from the FBI on the NICS background checks shows 1,870,000 Americans applying for permission to purchase a firearm in May. This number doesn’t include private unchecked transfers, as many states still allow the freedom of individual citizens to buy, sell, transfer, or give away their firearms without a background check. It also, of course, doesn’t count police departments, government agencies, or criminals.

But it illustrates the direct correlation between political pressure on the Second Amendment and the natural, predictable result:

Obama Does a 180 on Social Security; Now Wants to Expand Its Benefits

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 6, 2016:  

Social Security (play)

In a breathtaking reversal that far-left progressives are calling a victory, President Obama said in a speech in Elkhart, Indiana, on Wednesday that Social Security benefits should be expanded and made more “generous”:

And then we have to tackle retirement security. That’s something that keeps a lot of people up at night. … Let’s face it — a lot of Americans don’t have retirement savings. Even if they’ve got an account set up, they just don’t have enough money at the end of the month to save as much as they’d like because they’re just barely paying the bills. Fewer and fewer people have pensions they can really count on, which is why Social Security is more important than ever.

 

We can’t afford to weaken Social Security. We should be strengthening Social Security. And not only do we need to strengthen its long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits so that today’s retirees and future generations get the dignified retirement that they’ve earned. And we could start paying for it by asking the wealthiest Americans to contribute a little bit more. They can afford it. I can afford it.

This was met with huzzahs from the Left. Hillary Clinton tweeted,

Illinois Governor Vetoes Plan to Reduce Chicago’s Pension Contributions

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, May 30, 2016: 

Chicago’s pension contributions to its four dreadfully underfunded pension plans were supposed to double this year to $1.1 billion, up from $478 billion in 2015. But state legislators passed a bill (which had been bottled up for nearly a year) to cut that back to under $900 million. On Friday Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner (above) vetoed the bill, expressing in no uncertain terms that he was tired of politicians kicking the can down the road:

By deferring responsible funding decisions until 2021 and then extending the timeline for reaching responsible funding levels from 2040 to 2055, Chicago is borrowing against its taxpayers to the tune of $18.6 billion.

 

This practice has got to stop. If we continue, we’ve learned nothing from our past mistakes.

Those past “mistakes” have got Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel in a pickle.

Meet Michael Madigan, AKA “the Real Governor of Illinois”

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, May 30, 2016:  

Little happens legislatively in Illinois without the approval or acquiescence of House Speaker Michael Madigan (shaking hands with another corruptocrat, above). A Chicago pol, he has been speaker for 31 out of the last 33 years. When a bill arrives, it is shunted immediately to his Rules Committee, run by his second-in-command, Rep. Barbara Flynn Currie, also from Chicago, also a Democrat who was appointed Majority Leader of the House by Madigan.

If a bill ever sees the light of day (most don’t) it then is assigned to one of 50 committees, each of them chaired by a Madigan selectee.

A present example is SB 777, which

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

Another Good Ole Boy Likely to Get Off

Logo of the Internal Revenue Service

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

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

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:
