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...

Alabama Judge Roy Moore IS a Radical

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, September 13, 2017:

In his attack on former Alabama Judge Roy Moore (shown below), Matthew Sheffield, writing in the left-liberal Salon magazine, actually got it right: former Alabama Judge Roy Moore is a radical. Wrote Sheffield:

Comedian, Humanitarian Jerry Lewis Dead at Age 91

Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin.

The mainstream media missed a glorious opportunity to honor one of the great humanitarians of the last 100 years: Jerry Lewis. Instead it focused on his manic antics, his outrageous humor, his stint with Dean Martin in the long-running Martin and Lewis Show, with precious little ink spilled over his lifelong support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).

For example, in its 3,200-word obituary the New York Times called Lewis a “jester,” “silly,” and “stormy,” and that was just in its headline noting his death on Sunday. The Times said he was “a mercurial personality who could flip from naked neediness to towering rage.” When it came to his 67-year support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the paper spent just 63 words, total, in noting his work for the MDA.

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a ghastly disease,

Social Security Disability Fraudster Just Tip of the Iceberg

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, April 11, 2017: 

A former Kentucky attorney pleaded guilty on Monday to filing more than 1,700 fake disability applications under Social Security’s Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The complex scheme netted Eric Conn millions in kickbacks while costing SSI an estimated $550 million in phony benefits paid out to unsuspecting beneficiaries.

Conn’s plea bargain accused his co-conspirators, psychologist Alfred Adkins and Social Security Administrative Law Judge David Daugherty along with other unnamed individuals, of working with him in the scam. Conn claimed that the scheme was hatched originally by Daugherty.

The setup was simple:

Another Keynesian Failure: Brazil

John Maynard Keynes

Boiled down to its most crude elements, Keynesianism, according to Antony Mueller at the Mises Institute, is “the economic policy doctrine of growth by spending.” Since 2003, when the current political party in Brazil, first headed up by Lula and now by Dilma Rousseff, came to power, it installed it in spades. For a while it seemed to work: demand for Brazil’s raw materials: oil, iron ore, and agricultural products grew as China (also pursuing the “growth by spending” mantra) also grew.

But the boom, which at one point included Brazil as one of the BRIC (Russia, India, and China) nations that would soon overtake the developed world, went bust.

Nothing More Than a Coughing Fit?

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

Princeton Professor Cornel West Goes to St. Louis

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, July 11, 2015: 

When Princeton Professor Cornel West was arrested on Monday for blocking the entrance to the Thomas F. Eagleton Federal Courthouse in St. Louis, not far from Ferguson where protesters turned violent Sunday night and early Monday morning, the media bent over backwards to keep from exposing his radical Marxist background. Celebrating what the media called a “national day of civil disobedience,” West was referred to by CNN as a “scholar,” a “civil rights activist,” and an “intellectual” while the Associated Press limited its descriptors to just “scholar” and “civil rights activist.” USA Today, in its reporting of the incident, called West an “author” and “activist” and let it go at that.

To be better informed, however, one must look beyond the mainstream media to learn what the Princeton professor is really all about.

Is Alexis Tsipras Greece’s Pericles?

This article was published by the McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, July 13, 2015:  

In making his case that socialism is like a cancer that, if not surgically excised from the body politic, will kill its host, Robert Welch told his audience:

For the whole point is that the Greek civilization was at least many centuries old – that is, many centuries removed from its pioneer days – before Pericles started it on the road to death, at the very height of its glory, through making the government increasingly responsible for its citizens, instead of its citizens being responsible for, and watchdogs over, their government.

Greek’s present Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras, sounds awfully like Pericles. He had the audacity to

The Root Cause of Greece’s Problems: Socialism

Alexis Tsipras

Returning to Brussels with an austerity program eerily similar to that just rejected by Greek citizens a week ago, Prime Minister Alex Tsipras hoped to obtain another bailout in exchange for debt forgiveness by the European Central Bank (ECB). Tsipras is desperate: His government must make a $7.8 billion payment to the ECB next Monday, and another $13 billion by the middle of August.

Instead, following marathon sessions lasting into the wee hours, those EU officials upped the ante, passing even more stringent demands before granting Tsipras his lifeline. It told Tsipras, in essence, either to paint or get off the ladder:

With the announcement by the World Health Organization on Monday that Nigeria is now officially free of Ebola infections, followed by the announcement that same day that 43 people who had direct or indirect contact with Liberian national Thomas Eric Duncan were now safely out of quarantine and that the Carnival Magic cruise — dubbed the “Ebola cruise” — had returned to port without incident, caused Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings to confuse his metaphor while making the point: “We are breathing a little easier, but we are still holding our breath.”

Forty-three of the more than 100 people who came into direct or indirect contact with Duncan are now out of quarantine while the rest

Snakes, Beer cans and the Ebola Scare

When Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins learned that, for all intents and purposes, the Ebola virus scare has ended, he said:

I’ve seen and heard of horses spooked by a snake and go running and that’s probably a really good idea if you’re a horse.

I’ve seen and heard of horses spooked by a beer can. And beer cans don’t usually attack horses very often. So there’s not much reason for running from a beer can.

This [Ebola scare] is more of a beer can than a snake.

With Monday’s announcement by the World Health Organization that Nigeria is now officially free of Ebola infections, followed by the announcement that same day that
