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...

College Professors Have Their Incoherent and Illogical Lawsuit Tossed

Littlefield Fountain and Main Building of The University of Texas at Austin.

Three members of the 16,500 faculty of the University of Texas at Austin (UTA) became so incensed over the passage of Texas’ concealed carry on campus law that they decided, along with the assistance of a local Austin attorney, to file suit against everyone in sight to block its implementation scheduled for August 1. The district judge tossed it last week for lack of standing.

The lawsuit exposed not only the lack of standing, but the lack of understanding by the trio and their attorney, not only of the law, but the complete waste of time and Austin taxpayer money required for this frivolous complaint that resulted in nothing but bad publicity for the attorney and exposure of the silliness of professors with nothing better to do.

Hicks is a sole practitioner in Austin, while the three complainants were predictable liberals teaching at UTA:

California Judge Blocks Implementation of Magazine Ban

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, June 30, 2017:

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez issued a temporary injunction against implementation of a California law passed last year that would have turned most of the state’s six million gun owners into criminals overnight. Previous law banned high-capacity magazines (containing more than 10 rounds) but grandfathered in those owners who already possessed them. The new law repeals that exemption and punishes mere possession of the offending magazines with fines and possible jail time, starting on Saturday, July 1.

Said Benitez:

Blockbuster Study: Seattle’s Minimum-wage Increases Cost Low-wage Workers $125 a Month

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 26, 2017:  

A study commissioned by Seattle’s city council just came back with results they didn’t want to hear: Their efforts to raise wages of the city’s lowest-paid workers are instead costing them about $125 a month. This is thanks to their employers cutting their hours in response to the law raising the minimum wage from $10.50 an hour to $13 an hour in 2016.

Mark Long, one of the authors of the University of Washington (UW) study, said:

If you’re a low-skilled worker with one of these jobs, $125 a month is a sizeable amount of money. It can be the difference between being able to pay your rent and not being able to pay your rent.

In addition, the UW study concluded that, thanks to the minimum-wage increase, some 5,000 low wage jobs in Seattle were never created.

All of which makes perfect economic sense:

The saying “when seconds count the police are minutes away,” while somewhat dismissive of the utility of police, nonetheless assumes that when the police arrive, they’ll be able to resolve an incident effectively and efficiently. Now comes the FBI suggesting that when the police arrive they might not want to.

Is Obama’s New Home the “Nerve Center” for Anti-Trump Resistance?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, March 6, 2017:

Is former president Barack Obama’s new home in D.C.’s posh Kalorama neighborhood the “nerve center” for the anti-Trump resistance? Leon Wagener thinks so, and his story, originally published by the British tabloid the Daily Mail on March 1, gained national attention. Quoting “a family friend” of the Obamas, Wagener wrote that “Obama’s goal is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment,” splicing together a series of quotes elicited from this “friend”:

Who is Running OFA and the Indivisible Project, and Where?

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

In the beginning OFA stood for Obama for America, a fundraising effort during Obama’s first presidential run in 2008. After his inauguration it changed its name to Organizing for America and was housed inside the Democratic National Committee, which essentially controlled it. Now that Obama is out of office it has changed its name once again, to Organizing for Action, and its actual physical location and control center is unknown. It’s driving an attempt that has never been tried before: to thwart the programs of the new administration through political action, usually non-violent but occasionally violent.

OFA (the latest version) trains leftist organizers in the radical street tactics taught by leftist Saul Alinsky in his Rules for Radicals (and dedicated, by the way,

Washington Post Issues Correction After Getting Hack Story Wrong

On Monday the Washington Post expended 2,000 words in a lengthy correction for errors made in its original 1,500-word article claiming there was a Russian attempt to hack a Vermont utility. It should have left well enough alone.

The correction, offered by one of the original article’s two authors, stepped carefully around full admission of the error:

Mass. Superior Court: State’s AG May Demand “Safety” Info From Glock, Remington

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 9, 2016:  

Back in July Massachusetts’ anti-gun Attorney General Maura Healey unilaterally rewrote the law on what constitutes an “assault” weapon and then banned them under her new definition.

At the same time, she issued imperious demands from Remington and Glock to provide her office with all manner of private company information relating to the “safety” of the companies’ ammunition and firearms.

Her anti-gun ideology was clear when she banned the newly defined assault weapons, saying,

Hillary’s Anti-gun Stance Becomes Clearer Thanks to WikiLeaks

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 24, 2016:  

The tens of thousands of e-mails released by WikiLeaks over the last month have removed all doubts, if any still existed, that Hillary Clinton and her campaign will go to any lengths to erase the Second Amendment’s protection of the right of individual citizens to keep and bear firearms. That includes, but is not limited to, using executive orders to undermine the Second Amendment. One e-mail in particular showed how closely Clinton’s campaign staff works with a compliant media and what Clinton intends to do if she is elected president. Wrote a Clinon staffer in the e-mail:

“I’m With Hillary” Letter Published at Medium.com was Written by a Clinton Staffer

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, October 24, 2016:  

Medium.com claims to be “a community of readers and writers offering unique perspectives on ideas large and small.” Here are excerpts from one writer offering her perspectives on Hillary who was published on January 12 this year:

This week, President Obama announced that he’ll take new steps to take on gun violence in America – and not a moment too soon. Every day 88 Americans are shot and killed and hundreds more are injured with guns. We can’t go on like this.

 

My stepfather shot me when I was just a child 45 years ago and in the years since I’ve become an advocate for preventing both domestic abuse and gun violence. Tragically, those two things come together and end in tragedy with alarming regularity. In fact, 52 women are shot and killed every month by intimate partners.

Here is the part that might have been written by the author, one Clai Lasher:

Claim of “Negligent Entrustment” Fails in Lawsuit Against Remington Arms

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, October 17, 2016:  

Remington Arms

Lawyers decided to attempt to nullify a law passed by Congress a decade ago protecting the gun industry from frivolous (and costly) lawsuits. The law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), signed into law by President George Bush in 2005, specifically and deliberately prohibits civil liability actions against any part of America’s gun industry for damages or injunctive or other relief resulting from the misuse – criminal or otherwise – of their products.

There’s an exception built into the law called “negligent entrustment” which

Violating Rule Number One Costs Careless Silicon Valley Investors Millions

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, August 8, 2016:  

Every investor has, or at least should have, rules. A few good ones are: If your barber starts giving you investment advice, find another barber. Tips are for waiters. Never get into something that you can’t get out of. Always set a stop loss. If you miss one opportunity, don’t worry: there’s another one right behind it.  Wherever possible, hedge. And so on.

Above all these is Rule Number One, a rule so hackneyed it’s almost embarrassing to put it down on paper:

On Sunday, the day before the start of the Republican National Convention, Stephen Loomis, the president of the Cleveland Police Patrolman’s Association, sent a letter to Ohio Governor John Kasich asking him to restrict Ohio’s “open carry” law for Cuyahoga County for a week:

We are …. requesting assistance from him. He could very easily do some kind of executive order or something — I don’t care if it’s constitutional or not at this point.

 

They [constitutionalists, presumably] can fight about it after the RNC, or they [the governor, presumably] can lift it after the RNC, but I want him to absolutely outlaw open-carry in Cuyahoga County until this RNC is over.

A Closer Look at the Man Behind California’s Anti-gun Ballot Initiative

Lieutenant Governor of California Gavin Newsom

It’s often helpful to look into the background of a politician promoting a ballot issue on the chance that that look might reveal a hidden agenda. So it appears with California’s Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. Last year he announced that he was creating a petition for some anti-gun legislation that, if successful, would appear on this year’s November ballot. Last week he announced that he had secured 600,000 signatures for his petition, more than enough for it to be on the ballot.

The agenda is right in line with the anti-gun mentality expressed by

The War on Police: the Tamir Rice Shooting in Cleveland

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, April 27, 2016:  

In its feeble and failing attempt to allay the concerns of citizens just becoming aware of the deliberate attack on local police, National Public Radio enlisted the help of one of those involved: Daunasia Yancey. Yancy, a prominent member of the Black Lives Matter movement in Boston, said “I think that this ‘war on cops’ rhetoric is just another way to protect police from accountability. What they’re facing is not violence; it’s accountability.”

She should visit Cleveland and ask around about accountability. She should ask about fairness and justice and full disclosure. She should talk to the cops who have essentially been ignored in the shooting of Tamir Rice. She would find precious little of any of that.

Instead what she would find is

Hillary Says Americans “Have Just Too Many Guns”

During a campaign event in Philadelphia on Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton leaned into her favorite topic, gun control: “When it comes to guns, we have just too many guns on the streets, in our homes, in our neighborhoods,” she insisted.

Then she added that the reason there are so many guns is the success of the “gun lobby” in keeping Congress from passing more laws to restrict their ownership:
