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...

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.

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

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, April 27, 2016:  

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

As expected, both leading candidates in the Republican and Democratic primaries in New York on Tuesday extended their leads over their rivals. Hillary Clinton took 135 delegates to Sanders’ 104, all but cementing into place her nomination at the Democrat convention in July. Donald Trump extended his lead over his nearest rival, Ted Cruz, by running the board, taking 89 delegates to none for Cruz.

Council on Foreign Relations Doesn’t Understand Voters’ Anger

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, March 25, 2016:  

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

Officially Mexico says it honors the sovereignty of the United States and has no intention of interfering with the presidential elections in November. Privately, however, Mexican diplomats are gearing up to help Mexican immigrants obtain U.S. citizenship, and then urging them to vote in November. Adrian Sosa, a spokesman for the Mexican consulate in Chicago, exposed the official posturing as a lie, speaking at an event last week:

Morton Blackwell Reveals How GOP Insiders Could Manipulate the Convention Rules – Again

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, March 18, 2016:  

Morton Blackwell caught the fever at a very young age, attending the Republican National Convention in 1964 as Barry Goldwater’s youngest elected delegate. Active in Republican politics ever since, Blackwell is the Virginia Republican National Committeeman and a member of the RNC’s Standing Committee on Rules.

He told the story of how he tried to change the rule that sank Ron Paul’s campaign back in 2012 – Rule 40b – without success:

Solomon Yue, one of the 168 members of the Republican National Committee (RNC) from Oregon, has promised to present a startling proposal to the RNC Standing Rules Committee when it meets in April: toss the archaic, contentious, 1,500-page RNC rule book in favor of Robert’s Rules of Order: “To make the convention more transparent, I will advocate … adoption of Robert’s Rules of Order to replace the 1,500-page U.S. House rules to govern the convention.”

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,

Tuesday Will Seal the Deal for Trump

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, March 11, 2016:  

Next Tuesday, 367 delegates are up for grabs. According to the brightest people in the room, The Donald is likely to take most, if not all, of them. On top of his present 458, that would bring him to over 800. All he needs is 1,237 to win on the first ballot. This would leave his closest challenger, Ted Cruz, in the dust, with perhaps 500 by the time the champagne is gone Tuesday night. And there are still 1,000 more delegates to be awarded.

Professional prognosticators and statistical wonks have been working overtime and Trump keeps coming out on top. Reuters picked Trump to win

Byron York, chief political correspondent for the Washington Examiner, attended a town hall meeting in Columbia, South Carolina, on Wednesday featuring Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush. According to York, the meeting was a “downer,” with family members ranging from older brother George W. Bush, his mother Barbara Bush, his sister,  another brother, along with Jeb’s wife and children, all behaving as though they were attending a wake and not a celebration.

When quizzed about it, Bush responded, sarcastically:

Following Saturday Night’s “Thermonuclear” Debate, Trump Remains Unscathed

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, February 15, 2016:

Charles Krauthammer said he’d never seen anything like it:

If the previous Republican debates have been World War I or II, this is thermonuclear. I have not seen as many personal attacks or high temperature attacks as we saw in this debate….

 

We went here from WWE [World Wrestling Entertainment] to UFC [Ultimate Fighting Championship, or cage fighting].

 

This was a cage fight of the sort that I don’t think we have seen at the presidential level before.

Other observers were only slightly kinder. Caleb Howe, writing for RedState, said

Ignoring Due Process is now the Weapon of Choice by Anti-gunners

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, January 20, 2016: 

The history of due process reaches far back into history, farther than the Fourth Amendment’s guarantees of citizens’ rights to “be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures … [and that] no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” It goes back to Clause 39 of the Magna Carta:
