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...

McCabe Got Caught Lying

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, March 19, 2018: 

Marcus Tullius Cicero, by Bertel Thorvaldsen a...

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Justice is the glue that keeps society together. Ignore justice, or let crime go unpunished, and civil society will unwind. Marcus Tullius Cicero said it well:

For there is but one essential justice which cements society, and one law which establishes this justice. This law is right reason, which is the true rule of all commandments and prohibitions. Whoever neglects this law, whether written or unwritten, is necessarily unjust and wicked.

It took Attorney General Jeff Sessions a while, but he finally did the right thing. As the evidence against Andrew McCabe continued to mount, he ultimately had no choice but to fire the man. In his statement, Sessions didn’t beat around the bush:

 

After an extensive and fair investigation and according to Department of Justice procedure, the Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) provided its report on allegations of misconduct by Andrew McCabe to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR).

 

The FBI’s OPR then reviewed the report and underlying documents and issued a disciplinary proposal recommending the dismissal of Mr. McCabe. Both the OIG and FBI OPR reports concluded that Mr. McCabe had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions. (Emphasis added)

 

The FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability. As the OPR proposal stated, “all FBI employees know that lacking candor under oath results in dismissal and that our integrity is our brand.”

 

Pursuant to Department Order 1202, and based on the report of the Inspector General, the findings of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility, and the recommendation of the Department’s senior career official, I have terminated the employment of Andrew McCabe effective immediately.

Translation: Those various investigations into McCabe’s actions and statements that have been ongoing for months finally concluded that he lied. That was why he was fired.

He was an Obama holdover. He was persuaded that Hillary would win the presidency and all those investigations the FBI was conducting into her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play accusations, her 33,000 emails (that suddenly went missing), her role in Benghazi, etc., were all going to disappear down the memory hole. When she didn’t, it’s clear that McCabe had another set of problems. He had to distract the FBI away from them and redirect them into investigating Trump instead.

He left a trail of criminal behavior that raised eyebrows, but nothing substantial enough to force Sessions to toss him out the door. There was his failure to recuse himself during the Clinton email investigation following the disclosure that his wife had received $700,000 from a Clinton friend to help fund her election campaign in Virginia. McCabe said he followed the rules, but the odor of his violation of the Hatch Act (members of the executive branch cannot participate in election campaigns) was clear and distinct.

And then there was the indiscreet release of information to journalists from the Wall Street Journal about the ongoing Clinton Foundation investigation. He violated another rule, but nothing serious enough to put the man away.

And then came the Nunes Memo. The four-page memo, issued by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, suggested that McCabe had used the Steele dossier to persuade a FISA court judge to allow the FBI to spy on one of Trump’s campaign advisors, Carter Page.

When the Steele dossier was found to be full of lies, McCabe was done. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson helped things along:

The Steele dossier is absurd. The closer you read it, the more absurd it is. Take 10 minutes to do so yourself. It’s online. And as you read it, ask yourself: who would believe something like this? ….

 

And yet, keep in mind and never forget, this is the document the FBI [and McCabe] used to justify spying on American citizens.

McCabe lied. He got fired. He should have gotten fired for lying. He should never have been allowed to keep his job in the first place.

But justice is being served, even if a little late. Cicero was right: “Whoever neglects this law, whether written or unwritten, is necessarily unjust and wicked.”

Why Andrew McCabe Was Fired

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, March 17, 2018: 

The seal of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions formally fired former Deputy Director of the Federal FBI Andrew McCabe late on Friday, using formal language that explained the reasoning why: McCabe “had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor — including under oath — on multiple occasions.”

Witnesses under oath swear “to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.” Obviously, lacking candor does not meet this standard. Session did not call McCabe a “liar” or “perjurer” in his statement, but the implication was there.

Here is Sessions’ statement:

Media Ignore Real Hero in Florida Shooting: Unarmed Off-duty Police Officer Heinrich

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, February 26, 2018: 

English: The front side of Marjory Stoneman Do...

Stoneman Douglas High School, located in Parkland, Florida.

It is Coral Springs Police Department Sergeant Jeff Heinrich who deserves most of the credit in ending the shooting spree by Nikolas Cruz, a former student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last Wednesday. Unfortunately nearly all media attention has been focused on the “failures” of Sheriff Scot Peterson, entrusted with maintaining safety on the school grounds, and three other deputies who showed up shortly after the shooting began. Those failures included a decision not to confront the shooter for at least four minutes, allowing him to kill 17 people and wound many more. The delay also allowed the shooter to leave the scene in the chaos of students fleeing the building without being noticed or apprehended.

Heinrich is a long-time supporter of the school. His wife is an assistant athletic director, and their son is a student (who survived the shooting). Heinrich was off-duty, unarmed, wearing just shorts and a t-shirt, and watering the baseball field when he first heard the fire alarm go off followed by rifle shots. He immediately ran toward the sound of gunfire. Reporters with the local paper Tribunist wrote what happened next:

Florida’s School “Gun Free Zone” No Deterrent to Crazy Nikolas Cruz

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, February 16, 2018:

There is no doubt that Nickolas Cruz is crazy. And there’s no doubt that the FBI and the officials at the school he attacked on Wednesday knew it. Cruz left abundant clues about his mental instability: gruesome pictures he published on social media of animals that he had brutally killed; claims that he wrote “Allahu Akbar” on Instagram; revelations that the FBI knew of his erratic behavior months ago when it was reported to them by one of Cruz’s classmates; that he was expelled last year from the same school he attacked for “disciplinary” reasons; classmates being intimidated by him and avoiding contact with him because he was “weird” and a “loner”; and so forth.

But when it came to target selection, Cruz knew exactly what he was doing.

California Democrat Senator Nancy Pelosi

Following the ghastly shooting in Las Vegas, a retired Marine captain and gun store owner confronted Senator Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at a town hall meeting and asked her what sort of gun control measures could be implemented in the future to keep someone such as Stephen Paddock from murdering innocent civilians in the future. Pelosi said the present NCIS (National Instant Criminal Background Check System) is working just fine:

We have come together in a bipartisan way to put together what we thought would save the most lives. And that is to have background checks, gun violence prevention background checks, and to have them be effective.

But of course even a great system such as NCIS can be improved by expanding those background checks to include every private gun transaction between every private citizen, just to make sure the government knows everything. Said Pelosi:

Here’s What 100 FBI Agents Know About the Las Vegas Shooter

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 9, 2017:

It’s been a week since Stephen Paddock shot and killed nearly 60 people at a concert in Las Vegas and wounded another 500 before taking his own life. Since then, 100 FBI agents and other investigators have been combing Paddock’s background to try to determine a motive. After spending thousands of man-hours searching his computers, residence, hotel room, vehicles, and banking connections, and checking into his mental health records, criminal behavior, and finances, they have uncovered an immense amount of information. They have interviewed hotel employees and viewed hours of videotape from hotel surveillance cameras. They’ve learned a lot, but they still don’t have a motive.

And now they’re asking the public for help.

After Thousands of Hours Investigating Las Vegas Shooter’s Background, FBI Still Doesn’t Know Why

Officially there are 100 FBI agents working the case against Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter. That doesn’t count amateur sleuths, local police, the BATFE, and the Justice Department. After thousands of man hours, they have come up with: nada.

They found what they hoped was his suicide note. It turned out to be undecipherable, “significant to the gunman” but to no one else. They uncovered video of him driving to a public shooting range just outside Mesquite where he lived. But further investigation revealed that he never fired a single round from any of his “bump stock” rifles.

They checked into his prescription for Valium hoping that they could pin his murderous behavior on its “aggressive behavior” side effects. But

Why Did the Judge Acquit a St. Louis Police Officer of Killing a Black Man?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 18, 2017:

The decision on Friday to acquit a white St. Louis police officer in the fatal shooting of a black man back in December 2011 predictably set off rioting in the city. It didn’t occur to the rioters that, according to the evidence in the case, Officer Jason Stockley’s use of force was reasonable, to defend his own life against potentially lethal threat exhibited by Anthony Lamar Smith. It didn’t matter that the judge found that the state failed to prove its allegation that the gun found in Smith’s Buick that night was deliberately planted there by Stockley.

It didn’t matter that Judge Timothy Wilson has ruled both for and against the police during his 28 years on the bench. It didn’t matter that he is highly regarded by his peers, that he is viewed as an unbiased judge who has no ideological ax to grind except to get the facts straight and make the decision proper under the circumstances.

None of that mattered. Once Wilson’s decision was filed late Friday afternoon, the BLM rioters and their useful idiots brought out their pre-printed signs and started destroying property. When police arrived to quell the unrest, BLM thugs and others encouraged by them started attacking the police.

Much of the mainstream media have been willing — too willing — to uncritically circulate the anti-cop narrative that a white police officer should have been found guilty of murder for killing a supposedly unarmed black man, without including in their news accounts the evidence showing otherwise. Put simply: The white cop was guilty. Guilty. GUILTY! Let the rioting begin!

Yet the facts in the case tell a different story.

And the facts were examined by more than just Judge Wilson.

The FBI investigated the shooting right after it occurred, and never filed charges. The Civil Rights Division of Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) investigated, and never filed charges. An internal investigation by the St. Louis Police Department revealed that Stockley violated a rule that had nothing to do with the case, and sanctioned him for that. No other charges were filed against Stockley until the spring of 2016, more than five years after the incident, when then-Circuit Court Attorney Jennifer Joyce charged Stockley with first degree murder and armed criminal action by allegedly planting a gun in Smith’s vehicle.

For Judge Wilson, his ruling is clear: Stockley is innocent of both charges and he is now free to get on with the rest of his life. Said Stockley, after learning that the charges against him had been dismissed, “It feels like a burden has been lifted … my main concern now is for the first responders [in St. Louis],  the people just trying to go to work and the protesters. I don’t want anyone to be hurt in any way over this.”

Wilson is held in high regard in St. Louis. Jack Garvey, a lawyer and former judge himself, told the St. Louis Dispatch: “He’s very methodical and a very objective judge. He really will review everything before be makes a decision. I don’t think he’s ideological in any way. He just takes each case as they come to him.” Joel Schwartz, a defense attorney, added: “He’s been in St. Louis and has seen thousands of cases and understands evidence … my feeling on Judge Wilson is he’s a man who will do the right thing.” Another defense lawyer in St. Louis, Terence Neihoff, said: “Over the years he’s been remarkably consistent. He doesn’t just automatically believe the police.”

In his decision, Judge Wilson began by reviewing the constraints under which he operates: “A judge shall not be swayed by partisan interests, public clamor or fear of criticism”, adding that “a fair, impartial and independent judiciary requires that judges decide cases according to the law and facts, without regard to whether particular laws or litigants are popular or unpopular with the public, the media, government officials, or the judge’s friends or family.”

Wilson then described what happened. When Stockley and another officer, Brian Bianchi, exited their police vehicle to investigate a suspected drug transaction in a parking lot,  “Smith rapidly pulled forward … then frantically drove his Buick backward into the marked police vehicle twice, before speeding away at a high rate of speed.” Stockley testified that before the Buick exited the parking lot, he heard Bianchi yell “gun,” “indicating Smith had a gun in the car,” and that he (Stockley) also saw a gun. Stockley was struck in the arm by Wilson as he fled.

Stockley and Bianchi got back into their vehicle and pursued Smith, who, Wilson recounted in his decision, “drove at speeds up to 87 miles per hour, on wet roads, endangering other drivers and pedestrians. The pursuit ended when Smith drove into oncoming traffic and was bumped from behind by the police vehicle being driven by Brian Bianchi.”

Stockley got out of the police vehicle and approached Smith, who was still in the Buick. Wilson described what happened next:

Stockley told Smith to “show me your hands” repeatedly, but Smith continued reaching around [inside his vehicle]. Suddenly, Smith’s demeanor changed, around fifteen seconds after Stockley reached the driver’s window, when Smith reached between the seats, and Stockley said he thought Smith had retrieved the gun.

 

Stockley reached for his [service revolver] and stepped back because he was scared Smith would pull up his hand and shoot him. Stockley then fired several shots at Smith, which ultimately resulted in Smith’s death.

 

Judge Wilson reiterated what the dashcam video from the police cruiser, along with other video testimony provided by observers that night, revealed:

Stockley approached the driver’s side, appeared to attempt to open the door and, as testified to by the State’s own witnesses, ordered Smith to open the door and to show his hands. Stockley also warned another officer to “watch his hands.” It was not until fifteen seconds after Stockley arrived at the driver’s side door, that he unholstered his service revolver and fired several shots in succession.

What about the “planting” charge? DNA evidence indicated that Stocley had touched the gun, but Wilson noted that Stockley quite properly unloaded Smith’s weapon after the shooting, placing the empty firearm and the rounds on the passenger seat. Of course, if Wilson had actually planted the gun, as opposed to rendering the gun safe, he would have had to bring it to Wilson’s car to begin with. Regarding this scenario, Wilson concluded that, if the gun were planted, Wilson would have been observed with the gun. Wilson wrote:

Stockley can be seen on all sides while walking around the two vehicles [the Buick and adjacent police vehicle]. Stockley does not have a jacket on over his blue police uniform. There is no gun, other than his holstered service revolver, visible in his hands, in his pockets or tucked inside his belt, and there is no bulge from a gun in any pocket.

Later in his decision, Wilson added:

The gun [found in the car] was a full size revolver and not a small gun, such as a derringer, that can fit in the palm of one’s hand or into the side pocket on a pair of pants without vbeing obvious. Stockley was not wearing a jacket; if he had such a gun in his possession it would have been visible on the cell phone video. The gun was too large to fit entirely within any of the pockets on the pants he was wearing, there was no bulge in any pocket indicating a gun within the pocket, and the gun would have been visible if it was tucked into his belt.

Also, Wilson noted that “one obvious question the State made no attempt to answer was how Anthony Smith could have been short in the left lower abdomen by a person standing outside the car if Smith was simply sitting in the driver’s seat.” Wilson then referred to expert testimony of the doctor who conducted the autopsy, who “testified that the wounds in Smith’s left flank could indicate that Smith was reaching for something to his right at the time the wounds occurred.”

The state argued that a statement made by Wilson, and captured on audio, during the high-speed chase indicated that Officer Stockley intended to kill Smith. However, Wilson reasoned in his decision:

Commencing in the parking … when Anthony Smith rammed into the police vehicle twice, and then struck Stockley’s arm with the car while fleeing, officers Bianchi and Stockley were involved in a dangerous high speed pursuit. It is apparent from the dash cam audio and video that the pursuit was stressful both from the high speed nature of the pursuit and from confusion casued by the multiple radios and communications with a dispatcher. People say all kinds of things in stressful situations, and whether Stockley’s statement that “we’re killing this m*****f*****,” which can be ambiguous depending on the context, constituted a real threat of action or was a means of releasing tension has to be judged by his subsequent conduct.

Wislson concluded: “The Court does not believe Stockley’s conduct immediatley following the end of the pursuit is consistent with the conduct of a person intentionally killing another person unlawfully,” elaborating:

Stockley did not approach the Buick and immediately shoot Smith multiple times…. Stockley approached the driver’s side, appeared to attempt to open the door and, as testified to by the State’s own witnessess, ordered Smith to open the door and to show his hands. Stockley also warned another officer to “watch his hands.” It was not until fifteen seconds after Stockley arrived at the driver’s side door, that he unholstered his service revolver and fired several shots in succession.

At the end of his 30-page ruling, Wilson “decreed that the State has failed in its burden of proof and the Court finds that defendant is not guilty of both charges in this case: murder first degree and armed criminal action.”

As noted above, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter radicals. What matters is that a white cop shot a black man and a judge found the cop to be innocent. That narrative is all that is necessary to justify rioting, looting, firing stores and businesses and attacking police trying to quell the violence. In its war against the police, BLM radicals will use any excuse to light the match.

Trump Picks Wray to Head FBI; Mainstream Media Say It’s Smokescreen for Comey Hearing

The mainstream media, alerted to a Tweet President Trump sent early Wednesday morning indicating that he would nominate high-profile litigator Christopher Wray as FBI director, scrambled to find something negative to say about the choice. The best the New York Times could come up with was that he is a “hybrid pick,” whatever that means, but that the timing was suspicious: “Mr. Trump’s news may represent an attempt to inject credibility [whatever that means] into an investigation [that starts on Thursday].”

CNN likewise could find nothing negative in Wray’s background, so it, the least credible member of the MSM, focused instead on the timing,

Two weeks ago the state House passed H3930, a bill that would grant all citizens the freedom to carry a firearm — concealed or open — without first having to obtain governmental permission to do so. The vote was 64-46, and the measure moved to the Senate for consideration.

If the bill passes, South Carolina’s Governor Henry McMaster has said he would sign it into law. That would make it the 15th state to have some form of “constitutional carry,” as the momentum toward gaining full Second Amendment rights continues across the land.

Eric Holder, the man behind the operation, who denied it all.

On the evening of December 14, 2010, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and other BORTAC (Border Patrol Tactical Unit) agents were patrolling Peck Canyon in Santa Cruz County, Arizona, about 11 miles north of the Mexico border. They ran into five members of a “rip crew” — low-level drug cartel operatives looking for drug smugglers to rob — and attempted to arrest them. When Terry and the others fired non-lethal beanbag rounds, the rip crew responded with automatic fire from AK-47 rifles. In the resulting firefight, Terry was killed. The suspected triggerman, Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes, was arrested on Wednesday on a ranch on the border of the Mexican states of Sinaloa and Chihuahua.

His arrest was the result of a coordinated effort by the DEA, U.S. Marshalls, and BORTAC. This ends the search for the fifth and final member of that rip crew. The other four are serving long prison sentences for their part in the incident.
