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...

Dana Loesch’s NRA Ad Attacking New York Times Understates Its Dishonesty

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, August 8, 2017:

Dana Loesch, the conservative radio talk-show host and spokeswoman for the National Rifle Association (NRA), voiced the anger of many citizens that the mainstream media, specifically the New York Times, has moved from reporting the news to faking the news to promote its own agenda. In the latest video produced by the NRA that hit the wires on Thursday, she expressed that anger:

Dana Loesch and the NRA Miss an Opportunity to Tell the Whole Truth About the New York Times

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, August 9, 2017:

Dana Loesch, the conservative radio talk show host and spokeswoman for the NRA, has cut several videos promoting the pro-Second Amendment group, sometimes with such cutting commentary as to arouse the ire of her intended targets. The latest one that surfaced last Thursday was aimed directly at the mouthpiece of the liberal establishment: The New York Times.

She called out the paper in no uncertain terms:

Chicago Mayor Emanuel Files Suit to Block Federal Withholding of Grant Funds

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 7, 2017:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (shown) announced over the weekend that he would be filing a motion to stop the federal government from withholding grant funds under the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) program. Municipalities such as Chicago receive this funding to help them fight crime. Lord knows, crime is rampant in Chicago. But federal funding, which Chicago has been receiving all along, does not necessarily mean less crime. It does mean, however, that the federal government, as the provider of the funding, may use the funding as leverage to get the recipients to do what the feds want them to do — in this case, upholding federal immigration laws.

After all, isn’t this simply a case of (to quote an old adage):

After 11 hours, the jury hearing the case against former Florida Democrat Representative Corrine Brown reached a verdict on Thursday: guilty on 18 out of 22 charges filed against her in federal court. The jury convicted her of conspiracy, five counts of mail fraud, seven counts of wire fraud, one count of scheming to conceal material facts in the case, one count of obstruction of justice, and three counts of tax fraud.

As The New American reported on the case last year, Assistant U.S. Attorney General Leslie Caldwell provided some of the details:

Officers’ Lawsuit Against Marilyn Mosby in Freddie Gray Case Allowed to Proceed

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

Five of the six officers charged as accessories in the death of Freddie Gray in April 2015 filed suit against Baltimore’s state attorney Marilyn Mosby (shown) for malicious prosecution, defamation of character, and invasion of privacy, among other claims. Last Friday U.S. District Court Judge Marvin Garbis, in a 65-page ruling, ruled that their lawsuit against Mosby may move forward.

The next step is discovery during which Mosby and others in her department, as well as the Sheriff’s department, will be required, under oath, to explain

Washington Post Issues Correction After Getting Hack Story Wrong

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, January 3, 2017:  

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:

Was CIA Director Brennan’s 1976 Vote for a Communist Just a Youthful Indiscretion?

English: Founding members of the .Congressional Black Caucus

During a panel discussion Thursday at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s annual conference, CIA Director John Brennan was trying to make the point that just because an individual has an “activist” background, that wouldn’t, or shouldn’t, keep him from working for the federal government in sensitive positions. After all, he said, the CIA hired him even after he admitted voting for a communist in the 1976 presidential elections.

In 1980, Brennan was trying to obtain a top security clearance for the Central Intelligence Agency, and part of the process involved taking a lie detector test. He was asked: “Have you ever worked with or for a group that was dedicated to overthrowing the US?” Brennan explained to the panel what happened next:

Lula and his wife, Marisa Leticia, were charged in a public presentation Wednesday carried live on Brazil’s main news stations, with flow charts showing the network of politicians, corporate executives, and Petrobras employees being linked directly or indirectly to Lula.

Marilyn Mosby has given radicals a lesson in how to destroy faith in the criminal justice system. Without faith that it is fair, balanced, and just, it won’t work. The society will instead degenerate into mob violence and mob rule. That will lead to oppression and a federal police state. That process is already well underway in Baltimore.

In less than 100 days in office, Mosby had her chance.

Is the State’s AG for Baltimore Carrying Water for Much Bigger Actors?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, June 8, 2016:  

An internet search for links to radical groups, membership in far-left organizations, degrees from leftist universities (i.e., Harvard Law), reveals nothing about Marilyn Mosby (shown above), the youngest chief prosecutor of any major city in the country.

Instead she appears to be a very bright, highly-regarded prosecutor who graduated magna cum laude from Tuskegee University with a BA in Political Science and a law degree from Boston College Law School. Her family traces its association with law enforcement back over five generations.

And yet she persists in prosecuting – some say persecuting – the six officers involved in the death of Freddie Gray back in 2015. The first trial ended

Third Freddie Gray Murder Trial: Officer Charged With “Depraved Heart” Murder

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, June 7, 2016:  

The trial of the third of six officers charged in the April 2015 death of Freddie Gray begins this week in Baltimore. The first two trials ended in a hung jury and an acquittal. In the second case, involving Officer Edward Nero, Judge Barry Williams said that the prosecution, headed by State’s Attorney for Baltimore Marilyn Mosby, failed to prove any of the charges brought by Mosby: second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, or misconduct in office.

In this week’s trial, the stakes are even higher.

Literature abounds with pithy and relevant comments about the underside of politics. Disraeli said: “There is no gambling like politics.” Austin O’Malley said: “A politician is like quicksilver: if you try to put your finger on him, you find nothing under it.” Will Rogers said: “There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail.” Shakespeare said: “A politician [is] one who would circumvent God.”

Preet Bharara’s resume is impressive. Born in India and raised in Eatontown, New Jersey, he graduated from Ranney School, an independent, highly-regarded college preparatory school, in 1986 as valedictorian of his class. From there he went to Harvard College, graduating magna com laude (with great honor) four years later. He received his J.D. (juris doctor) in 1993 from Columbia Law School where he served on the Columbia Law Review.

After a stint as Sen. Chuck Schumer’s chief counsel, he served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in Manhattan for five years, successfully prosecuting bosses of the Gambino and Columbo crime families.

When he was nominated for U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York by President Obama in 2009, he breezed through Senate confirmation with no dissents.

Since that time he has scored impressive victories, prosecuting successfully more than

Black Lives Matter, NAACP Exploit Minnesota Shooting

Minneapolis Police Department badge

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 18, 2015: 

Within hours of the shooting of Jamar Clark by Minnesota police early Sunday morning, revolutionary groups NAACP and Black Lives Matter had rounded up an estimated 300 people and sufficiently aroused them to block the northbound lanes of Interstate 94, which runs through the city. The lanes were blocked from 6:45 p.m. until after 9 p.m. when most of them had left the scene, leaving a smaller group of protestors in place. Police tried to re-route the traffic, which was backed up for miles, down an embankment, but protestors pummeled the cars with bricks and, when an officer attempted to arrest one of those remaining, he was punched in the face.

Eventually more than 50 were arrested on misdemeanor charges and released when bail was met.

The incident involving Clark began following a physical altercation he had with his girlfriend in front of an apartment complex just after midnight on Sunday. She was beaten so badly that

OECD Issues Pessimistic Forecast for France

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, June 24, 2015: 

The OECD — the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development — put the best face possible on France’s declining economy in its just-released forecast. The report was full of optimism about the future but admitted that the present reality is discouraging. Note the use of words “projected” and “should” in its opening paragraph:

Economic growth is projected to gain momentum in 2015 and 2016. Lower energy prices, improving financial conditions, slowing fiscal consolidation, strengthening external demand and a pro-competitive reform agenda should underpin an increase in consumption and export volumes.

But the reality is far different, said the OECD:

New Jersey’s Anti-gun Laws Blamed for Woman’s Murder

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 15, 2015: 

Carol Browne, a petite hairdresser about to celebrate her 40th birthday, was getting out of her car in the driveway of her Berlin Township, New Jersey, home late Wednesday night, June 3, when she was attacked, stabbed and murdered by her ex-boyfriend, Michael Eitel.  

Eitel, an acquaintance of Browne’s husband (who had died in a motorcycle accident three years earlier), befriended Browne. But his background as a convicted violent criminal surfaced and Browne began to fear for her life. Eitel had pled guilty to a weapons offense in 2008 after being indicted on a charge of aggravated assault on a former girlfriend. For that he received a five-year sentence behind bars. 

Browne installed surveillance cameras at her home (which later caught and recorded the details her murder) and obtained a restraining order against Eitel. This apparently so enraged him that he broke windows of her home and her vehicle in retaliation. 

On April 21 she also applied for a permit to purchase a handgun to defend herself, and was still waiting for approval on the day she was murdered. Knowing that under New Jersey law, law enforcement officials are required either to issue or deny issuance within 30 days, on Monday, June 1 she contacted the police department to check on the status of her application. It was still pending.

Hillary’s Unethical Behavior Goes Back Decades

Touting her unique life experience, Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her campaign for president on Sunday. Above all, she says, she is a grandmother who simply wants America’s grandchildren to have an opportunity to succeed:

Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. I’m more convinced than ever that our future in the 21st century depends on our ability to ensure that a child born in the hills of Appalachia or the Mississippi Delta or the Rio Grande Valley grows up with the same shot at success that [my granddaughter] Charlotte will.

Missing from her proclamation as the savior of young people under her presidency is how she treated a sixth-grader back in 1975 who was repeatedly raped by a 41-year-old drifter. The drifter, one Thomas Alfred Taylor, requested a female court-appointed attorney, and Hillary Rodham, age 27, was assigned to defend him.
