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...

Sheriff Joe Incurs Wrath of Liberals in Announcing for Jeff Flake’s Senate Seat

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, January 11, 2018:  

speaking in Phoenix, Arizona on February 26, 2011.

Joe Arpaio, the World’s Toughest Sheriff

During an interview with Fox and Friends on Wednesday morning former Maricopa County (Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio announced he would be running for Senator Jeff Flake’s seat in the upcoming primary. Said Arpaio: “I’m doing it for the people of Arizona, for our country and to support our great president.”

This immediately elicited a tweet from President Trump: “Sheriff Joe is a patriot, Sheriff Joe loves our country, Sheriff Joe protected our borders.” “Sheriff Joe” also ticked off vast numbers of liberals for having the audacity at age 85 to run for Flake’s seat in the upcoming primary. One of the most prominent is Tom Perez, the hard-left liberal running the Democratic National Committee (DNC), who said,

Unwinding ObamaCare

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, October 13, 2017:

Those in the freedom fight know how to get rid of unnecessary, unconstitutional programs: starve them and/or let the free market compete against them. Either way, they’re done for. President Trump’s Executive Order issued on Thursday does both.

That’s why his order was so much more than just allowing the free market to operate in providing healthcare coverages. It set a pattern for further rescissions and reductions of other unnecessary and anti-freedom government programs. What President Trump said was music to the ears of those committed to free market principles and who have been fighting for years to see a day like Thursday arrive and hear a president say the following:

Liberal Snowflakes at Cornell Suffer Meltdown Over Chanting About Trump’s Wall

Willard Straight Hall at Cornell University.

If by “snowflake” one can accept the definition of Francis Dickinson, a Green Party activist, then snowflakes at the dormitory that houses La Associacion Latina (LAL) on the Cornell University campus had a meltdown last week. Dickinson defines a “snowflake” as “an insult, short for ‘special snowflake’ [which includes] all young liberals [who] think they are special and precious and unique and the world should revolve around them. And they will melt into a puddle when anything goes wrong.”

At 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 6, something went wrong, and the folks in the dorm melted into a puddle. Several of the LAL students claimed that they heard voices coming from the Zeta Psi fraternity next door chanting, “Build a wall! Build a wall!” The offense occurred the day after President Trump announced his pushback against DACA, and so the LAL students were on high alert for anything that might injure their tender sensibilities.

The LAL students issued a statement over the offense:

In anticipation of Judge Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation by the Senate, Colorado Senator Cory Gardner began putting together a list of prospective nominees for President Trump to consider to take his seat on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals: “We’re very close to sending over our list for the district,” said Gardner on Sunday.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sees Trump’s opportunity to reshape the country’s legal system, calling on the president to enlist an “army of young, principled constitutionalists” to fill the openings:

Donald Trump Officially Names Ben Carson as Head of HUD

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, December 5, 2016:  

As expected, on Monday President-elect Donald Trump nominated retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson to head the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD, shown), stating:

I am thrilled to nominate Dr. Ben Carson as our next Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ben Carson has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities.

Armstrong Williams, a Carson confidant, said the nomination is a perfect fit for the nominee: “HUD is a place that has an impact on something that Dr. Carson cares tremendously about: the inner city and urban America. Dr. Carson really has a passion for those issues where [he] could really make a difference.”

Others weren’t so “thrilled” with the nomination.

Dutch Pol Geert Wilders Refuses to Attend His Trial; Says It’s “Political”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 31, 2016:

Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician best known for his criticism of Islam, won’t attend his own trial that begins Monday. He asserted,

Monday, the trial against freedom of speech begins … against a politician who says what the politically correct elite does not want to hear.

 

This trial is a political trial, in which I refuse to cooperate.

The trial concerns two public utterances that he made back in 2014, including one where he spoke to political supporters at The Hague. He asked them if they wanted fewer Moroccans in the country, and they responded “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!” Wilders responded, “Well, we’ll take care of it, then.”

Some 6,400 complaints were filed with local police, mostly from Moroccans living in the country. The court sorted through them and found 35 that were valid to bring charges of discrimination against Wilders.

Wilders was also charged in 2011 with criminally insulting Islam and inciting hatred as a result. Those charges stemmed from articles that he had penned and statements that he made calling for a ban on the Koran, warning against an “Islamic invasion” of his country and the coming “tsunami of Islamization.” He described Islam as fascist, Moroccan youths as instigators of violence, and compared the Koran to Hitler’s Mein Kampf.

He authored the script for a 2004 film entitled Fitna, a 17-minute-long argument that Islam encourages acts of terrorism, anti-semitism, violence against women, subjugation of infidels, and sanctions against homosexuals. Wilders explained his intentions, saying that the film (which is free on the Internet) was “a call to shake off the creeping tyranny of Islamisation.”

When he was acquitted of all charges in that trial, Wilders called it victory not only for himself but for freedom of speech.

The present trial is a variation on the same theme: Wilders is being charged with discrimination against a group, not a religion, which in the Netherlands is considered a hate crime. Frans Zonneveld, a spokesman for the prosecution, explained the difference:

Islam is an idea, a religion, [and] according to the public prosecution service, you have a lot of room to criticize ideas. But when it comes to population groups [Moroccans make up about two percent of the 17 million citizens in the Netherlands], it’s a whole different matter. His remarks touched the very being of this population group.

 

You cannot choose to be a part of a population group or not; it’s a group that’s decided by birth, so it’s a whole different matter.

Wilders responded: “It is a travesty that I have to stand trial because I spoke about fewer Moroccans [in the Netherlands]. It is my right and duty as a politician to speak about the problems in our country.”

In the Netherlands, Wilders does not have the guarantees provided Americans under the Bill of Rights to the Constitution, specifically those spelled out by the First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”  Instead he is faced with a greater likelihood this time around of going to jail, or at least paying a fine or doing some community service, for his “crime.” However, his Freedom Party will face the Netherlands’ ruling party in elections in March. At present the race is too close to call. A conviction of Wilders in this case could work to his party’s advantage, as an increasing number of Dutch citizens are becoming aware of his warnings and potential threats to their culture.

Study by Black Harvard Economist Refutes Black Lives Matter’s Claim

When the conclusions were made public — that there is no proof that police officers are more likely to shoot blacks than whites in lethal-force confrontations — neither the author, black Harvard economics professor Roland Fryer, nor the New York Times could believe them.

Fryer, the youngest African-American to receive tenure at Harvard and the first one to receive a prize given to the most promising American economist under 40, said his report’s conclusions were “the most surprising result of my career.”

The New York Times was less generous, writing that

Seattle Progressives Prove Certain Economic Laws Cannot Be Repealed

Peter, Paul & Mary

By changing the meaning of the word “flowers” to “businesses,” the lyrics from Peter, Paul & Mary’s anti-war song applies perfectly to the new Seattle under its new minimum wage mandates: Where have all the businesses gone?

Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing?”
Where have all the flowers gone, long time ago?
Where have all the flowers gone?
Young girls have picked them everyone.
Oh, when will they ever learn?
Oh, when will they ever learn?

And when will Mayor Ed Murray and his gaggle of progressives who unanimously passed the anti-business, anti-employment minimum wage law last summer ever learn: you cannot fool Mother Nature, and you cannot repeal economic laws.

In Murray’s case the economic law still to be learned is:

In August 2004 an alert Maryland transportation worker noticed a woman wearing a burka video-taping the supporting structures of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge from an automobile. He conducted a traffic stop and discovered that the driver, a Muslim from Chicago, had an outstanding warrant in a case involving fundraising for the terrorist group Hamas.

The FBI obtained a search warrant of his home and found, in a sub-basement below the house’s foundation, more than 80 book boxes filled with archives belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood. It not only listed dozens of other radical Muslim groups operating across the country with connections to the group, but their marching orders as well:

On Thursday night, May 21, the Texas state senate passed a bill that would prevent any international law from being used in Texas civil courts in deciding disputes. Radio station WOAI characterized the bill as an “anti-sharia” bill, but state Senator Donna Campbell said that her bill doesn’t mention sharia law at all, just that it guarantees that no law from “foreign courts” would be used to override American law in settling civil matters.

When pressed for clarification about just which such laws she was concerned about, and could she provide an example, she whiffed: “No foreign law [specifically].… This just provides a context for judicial discretion … that we don’t trump Texas law, American law, with a foreign law regarding family law.”

Whether Campbell knew it or not, her bill, if signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott, would make Texas the next

Rutherford Institute’s Remarkable Record

This article was first published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, May 6, 2015:

The record of the Rutherford Institute reflects the record, activities, and accomplishments of its founder, John W. Whitehead. Whitehead founded a pro-bono law firm in 1982, and has compiled a record of accomplishments in the freedom fight that is breathtaking in its scope.

The latest is a tiff between the city of Harrisonburg, Virginia and a small church that dared to post some pro-life posters on its fence. A disgruntled and offended resident complained, and the city sent a letter to the church threatening fines and jail terms to its officials if the posters weren’t removed.

The congregation of Harrisonburg, Virginia’s Valley Church of Christ decided to promote its pro-life views by hanging two posters on its fence on the corner of Virginia Avenue and Acorn Drive. One poster showed a fetus cradled in a pair of hands with this quote from Mother Teresa: “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.”

The second one pictured a face of a baby and this quote from Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.”

It didn’t take long before someone took umbrage at the message, and complained to the city.

Media Stirs Up Controversy Over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Law

When a white policeman shot a black man in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer, it should have been a page two story in the local papers, and then forgotten. But the media saw their chance to promote their agenda, and Ferguson became front page news for months on end.

Indiana’s religious freedom bill, signed into law by Governor Mike Pence on Thursday, has unleashed a similar outpouring of angst by people who should know better: Hillary Clinton, grade B movie stars Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus, CNN, and the New York Times. The word is out: Indiana now has legalized discrimination against gays and lesbians!

In reality the law adopts the same approach to the exercise of religious freedom under the First Amendment and government interest as the bill that Hillary’s husband signed into law back in 1993:
