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...

Much More at Stake Than Just Exiting the Establishment

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, August 26, 2016:  

Nigel Farage, a bold and uncompromising critic of the European Union, has long been a thorn in the side of the insiders pushing for world government. He has had the audacity to stand up repeatedly in its official chambers and call out the other unelected bloviating members of the so-called European Parliament, exposing their real purposes behind the EU.

When he appeared onstage with Donald Trump on Tuesday night in Jackson, Mississippi, in front of 15,000 noisy supporters, the mainstream media didn’t quite know what to make of it. First,

Nigel Farage.

Nigel Farage, former head of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), addressed some 15,000 Trump supporters in Jackson, Mississippi, on Tuesday night to encourage them in their fight against the Washington political establishment. He drew parallels between the fight for Brexit, which he and his party strongly supported but which polls showed likely to lose right up until the day of the vote, and Trump’s fight:

Why Voting for Donald Trump Is a Morally Good Choice

By Wayne Gruden

Some of my Christian friends tell me they can’t in good conscience vote for Donald Trump because, when faced with a choice between “the lesser of two evils,” the morally right thing is to choose neither one. They recommend voting for a third-party or write-in candidate.

As a professor who has taught Christian ethics for 39 years, I think their analysis is incorrect.

Venezuela’s President Deliberately Stalling Recall Referendum

Nicolas Maduro

If Venezuela’s Marxist dictator, President Nicolas Maduro, can remain in power until January 10, 2017, then he will remain the country’s leader for the foreseeable future. Even if elections are then held and oust the president, Maduro will be replaced by his hand-picked second-in-command and continue the socialist “revolution” that is turning Venezuela back into a banana republic.

That’s why he is doing everything he can to stall a recall referendum that would lead to his recall before then. Accordingly he is

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:

Trump, the Constitutionalist?

Missing from Donald Trump’s many public pronouncements and offerings is any clear understanding of the limitations, restrictions and “chains” of restraint placed on the federal government by the republic’s founders. In his business life he is certainly acquainted with at least one part of the Fifth Amendment: “no person’s private property [shall] be taken for public use, without just compensation.” He used that to wrest a private home from its owner simply because it was in the way of the parking lot of one of his casinos.

As for the other part, equally obscure but increasingly threatened by a government no longer bound by those chains, Trump may be ignorant:

Michel Temer, Brazil’s Interim President, is Already on the Ropes

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, June 1, 2016:  

When this writer reported that President Dilma Rousseff was being replaced by another Brazilian corruptocrat, Michel Temer, he wondered just how long the new administration might last.

That was three weeks ago.

In a tape that secretly recorded Temer in April as assuming Rousseff’s removal from office and his own ascension to it, Temer said:

Trump Suggests National Debt “Deal,” Media Calls It “Fanciful” and “Dangerous”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, May 9, 2016:  

A snippet from Donald Trump’s conversation with CNBC on Thursday raised the ire of numerous media commentators, who called Trump’s plan “unprecedented” (CNBC), “fanciful” and a “threat” (New York Times), and “tantamount to a debt default” (Yahoo Finance). Others called his remarks “reckless,” while Tony Fratto, a former Treasury official in the George W. Bush administration said, “This isn’t a serious idea — it’s an insane idea.”

What sparked the ire? The initial impetus was when Trump said, “[The U.S. Treasury is] paying a very low interest rate. What happens if that interest goes up two, three, four points? We don’t have a country. I mean, if you look at the numbers, they’re staggering.”

Indeed they are. The U.S. Debt Clock shows the national debt closing in on $20 trillion, while the economy is slumping along, with a GDP at just over $18 trillion. Put another way,

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:

Will Cruz’s Hail Mary Save His Campaign?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, April 29, 2016: 

Before that miraculous toss that put the Dallas Cowboys on top of the Minnesota Vikings in an NFL playoff game in 1975, the last-second desperation throw was called the “Alley-Oop.” But when Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach was asked about it after the game, he said “I closed my eyes and said a Hail Mary” and changed its name forever.

History is replete with Hail Mary tosses that worked.

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 Clinton took 135 delegates to Sanders’ 104, all but cementing into place her nomination at the Democrat convention in July.

Council on Foreign Relations Doesn’t Understand Voters’ Anger

In his article published by the Project Syndicate on Thursday, Richard Haass, the president of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) revealed that he doesn’t understand voters’ anger manifesting itself in the unexpected success of candidates viewed as establishment outsiders such as Senator Ted Cruz and businessman Donald Trump.

He noted voters’ “considerable anxiety” and even their “outright anger” but cannot understand why they feel that way. After all, he said,

Trump, Clinton Extend Leads; Cruz Takes Utah; Kasich Hopes to Be Spoiler

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, March 23, 2016: 

Tuesday’s primaries and caucuses extended Donald Trump’s lead over Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination, leaving John Kasich far behind. Hillary Clinton rolled over Bernie Sanders despite his taking the Utah and Idaho caucuses.

Capturing 58 delegates to Cruz’s 40 puts Trump ever closer to securing the nomination for president by the Republican Party, providing one considers only the math. Trump’s 739 delegates already in hand, along with another 323 he is expected to obtain from New York (estimated 80), Pennsylvania (estimated 71), and California (estimated 172) would put him at 1,062, 175 delegates short of the 1,237 needed to win on the first ballot in Cleveland in July.

To secure a win, Trump needs only to secure

Less than a week before March 15, the date when GOP primaries will be held in five states, an analysis by the Washington Times puts Donald Trump within shouting distance of the GOP nomination for president at its national convention in Cleveland in July.

By next Tuesday evening 367 delegates from those states will have been awarded to their winners, with Donald Trump projected to take most of them, as four states are “winner-take-all” states,
