Former Labor Secretary Thomas Perez New DNC Chairman

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, February 27, 2017: 

Democrat “establishment” candidate Thomas Perez (standing next to Obama, below) became the new Democratic National Committee chairman in Atlanta on Saturday, by a vote of 235-200. Keith Ellison, far-left member of the House from Minnesota, came in a close second, after a second vote was necessary to determine the winner.

Hard-left groups, hoping to pull the Democrat Party even further left with an Ellison victory, were disappointed in Perez’ win. Jim Dean, chair of Democracy for America, which was founded by by his brother, former Vermont Governor and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean, in 2004, said:

Thomas Perez and Keith Ellison: Two Left-Wing Peas in a Pod

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, February 27, 2017:

It was a near thing: hard-left Muslim Keith Ellison had everything going for him: timing, momentum, and endorsements. He should have won in a walk, and he almost did.

The chairmanship for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) was up for grabs in Atlanta on Saturday, and, for the first time in recent memory, it took two ballots to determine a winner. It was Perez over Ellison: 235-200.

Hard-left groups were incensed. This was the second time they had been shut out by the insiders, the first when Hillary allegedly sabotaged Bernie’s campaign for the presidency in the Democrat primary. Said Jim Dean, head of Howard Dean’s Democracy for America:

When George Soros Dies, Who Will Run His Money, and for What Purposes?

This article was published at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, January 20, 2017: 

Speculation abounds. George Soros (shown) turned 86 last August, and the clock is ticking. He lost $1 billion betting against Trump in November, but still has $25 billion left. When he meets his Maker (likely for the first time), who will drive the billionaire’s Wells Fargo wagon?

Alexander Soros, Scion of Billionaire George Soros, Being Groomed to Take Control

Alexander Soros

According to Media Research Center (MRC,) Alexander Soros (shown), one of billionaire George Soros’ five children, opened his father’s checkbook and gave more than $4.5 million to various Democratic campaign and political action committees last year. Between August and November the Soros scion wrote four checks to Senator Harry Reid’s Senate Majority PAC totaling $3.5 million. The other checks went to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, the Democratic National Committee Services Corporation, and other left-wing groups and politicians.

Although it’s George’s money, Alexander is making the decisions on a major part of his father’s estimated $25 billion. And it appears to be part of a plan to move Alexander into the driver’s seat when his father, age 86, passes from the scene. Dan Gainer, the MRC vice president who tracks the numbers, told the Washington Times: “Alexander Soros is following in both his father’s and brother’s footsteps — going left.” He added:

Baltimore PD Now Arm of the DOJ; Chicago to Follow

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, January 16, 2017:  

Baltimore Police Department

On Thursday, the Baltimore City Council assented to the final step in turning the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) into a de facto branch of the Department of Justice: it agreed to be bound by a “consent decree” – 227 pages of federal regulations, mandates, and rules that now control even the minutest behaviors of every employee of the BPD, from beat cop to the top.

The strategy begins with an “incident,”

And Not a Shot Is Fired: Baltimore City Council Assents to Federal Consent Decree Over Its Police Department

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, January 12, 2017:  

Baltimore Police Department

The consent decree just approved on Thursday by the Baltimore City Council cements into place the next step toward a virtual federal takeover of the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).

The decree itself provides all the damning evidence. First, the incident: the death of Freddie Gray in 2015, followed by riots incited by a Marxist group funded by a billionaire. Those riots were followed by charges that the BPD used illegal measures to ensure public safety.

The U.S. government illegally and unconstitutionally investigated those charges, concluding that something must be done. Under implied threats, the consent decree was born, with obligations and mandates and changes to be enforced by a federal judge.

First, the incident.

George Soros, the funding source of BLM

A measure of just how effective the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement has become in its virulent anti-police protests was released on Wednesday by Pew Research Center. In its report “Behind the Badge,” reflecting the view of nearly 8,000 active law-enforcement officials, Pew stated: “Recent high-profile fatal encounters between black citizens and police officers have made their jobs riskier, aggravated tensions between police and blacks, and left many officers reluctant to fully carry out some of their duties.”

Specifically those BLM-inspired and George Soros-funded protests have increased tensions between

One of the first criticisms over Donald Trump’s nomination of former Goldman Sachs banker Steven Mnuchin on Wednesday for Treasury secretary came from the Democratic National Committee: “So much for draining the swamp … nominating Steven Mnuchin to be Treasury Secretary is a slap in the face to voters who hoped [Trump] would shake up Washington.”

Trump Names RNC Chair as Chief of Staff

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, November 14, 2016:  

Upon learning that Donald Trump named the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), Reince (pronounced “rains”) Priebus to be his chief of staff, Michael Savage called him “the enemy within.” Savage, the host of a popular talk show with 20 million listeners nationwide, added:

He’s the RNC! Everything the voters rejected. He will steer Trump away from every policy we sent him to D.C. to change. He is the enemy within. He is [Paul] Ryan, [Mitch] McConnell, and the Old Guard. They do not want change.

The Four “Wild Cards” in Trump’s Handful of Advisors

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

English: Logo of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc....

Nervous conservatives are looking for signs that the “establishment” – i.e., Goldman Sachs, big banks, the Council on Foreign Relations, George Soros, etc. – having been unable to derail Donald Trump’s march to the presidency, is going instead to infiltrate and insinuate its operatives into the new Trump administration. Many of them remember the successful infiltration and subsequent manipulation of the Reagan administration with the naming of establishment insider James Baker as Reagan’s chief of staff.

At the moment there appear to be four “wild cards” out of the dozens Trump has already invited into his inner circle: Steven Mnuchin, Peter Navarro, John Paulson, and Carter Page.

The first and most obvious one is Steven Mnuchin, the head of Dune Capital Management and former director at Goldman Sachs, where he amassed a personal fortune estimated at more than $40 million as head of the firm’s trading desk. A graduate of Yale,

Trump Adds to His List of Advisors

English: Deck of cards used in the game piquet

In March, Donald Trump trotted out an early list of foreign-policy advisors on whom he would be relying if he were elected president. In an interview with the Washington Post, Trump said, “I can give you some of the names … Walid Phares, who you probably know, PhD, adviser to the House of Representatives Caucus, and counter-terrorism expert; Carter Page, PhD; George Papadopoulos — he’s an energy and oil consultant, excellent guy; the Honorable Joseph Schmitz, [former] inspector general at the Department of Defense; [retired] Gen. Keith Kellogg; and I have quite a few more.”

In August he added “quite a few more” and then, the day after he was elected, Trump added still more, this time in the economic policy area.

There are at least four “wild cards” in the deck that Trump is building,

Much Work Still To Be Done To Restore Second Amendment

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, April 18, 2016:  

Recent victories, both small and large, are reflective of the paradigm shift in thinking about guns, gun ownership, self-defense, and the Second Amendment. After victories at the Supreme Court level, the restoration of gun rights battle has moved to the state and local levels.

For instance, last Friday Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant signed into law the Church Protection Act, which now allows church authorities to develop security programs involving church members with concealed carry permits to keep their churches safe. The law grants the same “Castle Doctrine” rights they enjoy at home in the event of a shooting incident.

The new law also expands the state’s permitless carry law to include belt and shoulder holsters in addition to the already allowed carry in purses, handbags, satchels, briefcases, and other fully enclosed cases.

Most importantly, the new Mississippi law prohibits state and local officials from enforcing federal gun control laws that haven’t been passed by the Congress and violate the federal and Mississippi constitutions.

Mississippi is the ninth state to recognize the right of a citizen to carry concealed without government permission.  Only two states – Georgia and North Dakota – ban all guns from places of worship, while eight states prohibit those with concealed carry permits from carrying into places of worship. Every other state leaves the matter up to the churches individually.

Larry Dean, pastor of the Bridgetown Baptist Church in Nesbit, Mississippi, favors the new law, telling The Daily Beast, “The reality is that we’re a soft target. Anyone can carry a weapon at any time and do whatever evil they are going to do. Having a gun [owner among our parishioners] is one way to stop or restrain them.”

Not everyone was in favor of the new law, however. Larry Decker, the executive director of the Secular Coalition for America, called it “the worst bill in America,” adding that it puts “soldiers of God above the law, allowing them to act as judge, jury and executioner … this legislation emboldens extremists by creating a legal means for radical preachers to enlist their congregants into ‘God’s army.’”

The new law in Mississippi on Friday follows hard after the victory in Iowa allowing that state’s citizens to purchase, own, and use suppressors on their weapons without governmental permission, registration or fees. The Iowa bill took three years of hard work by the National Rifle Association (NRA), the Iowa Firearms Coalition, and the American Suppressor Association to persuade legislators to pass the bill. Said Joshua Waldron, the CEO of SilencerCo:

SilencerCo has been a strong supporter of the American Suppressor Association since its inception. We’re proud of the hard work they have put behind [the bill], along with the help of the NRA and the Iowa Firearms Coalition.

 

Because of the determination and educational push by these groups, Iowans can now enjoy the same rights as are held by law-abiding citizens in 41 other states.

And the Iowa victory followed two more in Florida in January. One exempts a “recreational discharge if ‘under the circumstances, the discharge does not pose a reasonably foreseeable risk to life, safety, or property’” while another stops prosecutors from putting people in jail for 10 years if they show a gun to scare off an attacker or 20 years for firing a warning shot.

Neither space nor time permits listing the victories, both large and small, being registered and enjoyed by pro-Second Amendment advocates simply because the list is too long. Suffice to say that there remains much work to be done. For instance, Iowa’s American Suppressor Association is now going after those few states, like California, Illinois, Massachusetts, and New York, that still have suppressor restrictions with their program “No State Left Behind.” Arizona congressman Matt Salmon is going after the 1934 National Firearms Act, which requires a $200 fee from a citizen who wants to own a suppressor. It’s that act which began the attack on guns in earnest under President Roosevelt and has served as the basis for all manner of mischief ever since, culminating in the Gun Control Act of 1968 and the Clinton assault ban in 1994.

But a measure of the success in restoring Second Amendment rights is the fact that, despite massively funded efforts by gun-controllers like Michael Bloomberg and George Soros, there has been no major incursion into the Second amendment since 2004 when the Clinton assault weapons ban was allowed to expire. Efforts to restore that ban were rebuffed in the Senate with a vote of 84 to 16.

As Winston Churchill famously said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

And pro-gun advocates are pressing their advantage.
