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...

Despite efforts by Michael Bloomberg’s group, Moms Demand Action (MDA), to pressure the Kroger Company into changing its firearms policy regarding its customers, most Americans aware of MDA’s attack on the grocery chain are supporting Kroger. Earlier this month, MDA, with Bloomberg’s money, bought a series of newspaper ads and billboards in an attempt to force Kroger to stop operating its stores under prevailing state laws regarding unlawful firearms carry, and instead ban them altogether. Almost immediately thereafter, MSNBC launched a public opinion survey, asking:

Media Seizes on Uzi Shooting Accident to Promote its Agenda

Cover of "The Bias Against Guns: Why Almo...

The temptation to turn the tragic shooting at a gun range in Arizona last week into another opportunity to promote its anti-gun agenda proved to be simply too much for the mainstream media. The Christian Science Monitor noted that “the United States has precious few rules when it comes to children handling firearms … [and the tragedy] raises difficult questions not just about parental culpability, but about whether states should ban at least heavy automatic weaponry from the hands of children.” After admitting that the shooting was an extremely rare event, quoting Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles: “shootings at gun ranges are freak accidents,” the Monitor then went on to quote Lindsay Zwicker of the San Francisco-based Law Center To Prevent Gun Violence:

Mike Rowe Touches the Third Rail of Retailing: Walmart!

Mike Rowe, the popular host of Dirty Jobs on the Discovery Channel and frequent voice behind ads for Ford, Caterpillar, Motorola and Lee’s Jeans, learned how thin his popularity is among some of his fans when he touched the third rail of retailing: Walmart. In his voiceover of Walmart’s ad appearing during the Olympics, Rowe announces the retail giant’s plans to

Media’s encomiums for Pete Seeger fail to inform of his radical background

In announcing the death of Pete Seeger who passed away on Monday night at the age of 94, the mainstream media applauded his lifetime as a folk singer, singing, as the Washington Post put it, “songs of love, peace, brotherhood, work and protest” and calling him a “20th-century troubadour” known for popularizing “If I Had a Hammer”, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and especially the “anthem of the civil rights movement”: “We Shall Overcome.”

The Post noted only briefly Seeger’s close relationship with

New Detroit Police Chief favors gun ownership, announces declines in crime

When Detroit’s new police chief, James Craig, took over on July 1st last year he made a strong declaration that crime was going to go down on his watch:

No longer will we stand idly by as criminals run rampant and the good citizens are held captive in their own homes.

Gone are the days that a citizen calls 911 and there is no response. Gone are the days that a citizen comes to a precinct only to find that the doors are locked.

We have taken an oath to protect our citizens and protect them is what we will do.

Six months later Craig reported that criminal homicides

Debtors’ Prisons – Again

Dana Burdette, after being incarcerated for being unable to pay her fine to the Harpersville, Alabama court, filed suit in 2010 claiming that her civil rights were violated. She was not alone. Joining her were Richard Garrett, Terrence Datcher and Debra Ford. The lawsuit claimed that the city “automatically incarcerates indigent defendants for failure to pay fines and costs,” among other indignities and constitutional violations. The case wound up in front of Shelby County Judge Hub Harrington who tore to shreds the defendants’ arguments that

Colorado Shooting Incident Fails to Generate Liberal Media Buzz

When Karl Pierson entered his Arapahoe High School last Friday wearing a black face mask, dressed in a black hoodie, and carrying a shotgun over his shoulder, he briefly appeared to present another opportunity for the media to promote its anti-gun agenda. Within 80 seconds Pierson proved them wrong,

The “Stadium Wave” Explains Flat Temperatures for the Past 15 Years

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, November 8th, 2013:

Judith Curry’s explanation as to why global temperatures have not changed for the past 15 years makes too much sense, so the global climate-changers are scrambling to find other causes.

Curry is the head of Georgia Tech’s Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, and in her press release she explained the climate-changers’ predicament:

Tea Party Accepts Challenge from Obama to “Win an Election!”

The president couldn’t resist spiking the ball after scoring his “keep the status quo” touchdown earlier this week in his remarks on Thursday:

You don’t like a particular policy or a particular president, then argue for your position. Go out there and win an election!

That is exactly what conservative challengers are doing to those perceived to have

Fringe Anti-gun Group Challenges the National Rifle Association

Within hours of the press release issued by Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), the fledgling anti-gun group that was hatched following the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords (and now run by her husband Mark Kelly), that the two were headed to Saratoga Springs Arms Fair in New York on Sunday, the media splashed headlines as if it were a major event.

Is Bezos Buying at the Bottom?

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, August 9th, 2013:

It was suggested here on Wednesday that Jeff Bezos and John Henry might have overpaid for their recent purchases of the Washington Post and the Boston Globe. Newspaper revenues have been declining for years, and more precipitously in recent years. The best minds in the business have been unable to halt that decline. Pay walls have offended readers who have the freedom to go elsewhere for their news. Package deals and bundling haven’t worked. The Drudge Report continues to gain ground at their expense and is now worth more (with just two or three employees) than

Nelson Mandela to Be Promoted to “Sainthood” by the Media at His Death

This article was first published at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, July 10th, 2013:

 

With the announcement of Nelson Mandela’s demise expected shortly, the mainstream media’s orchestra and chorus of praise and worship are already warming up. It no doubt will drown out any protests or exposés by thoughtful journalists who have taken the time to find out the truth about this revolutionary communist terrorist masquerading as a

This is an amazing admission.

[To] conspiracy  theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world  is a rigged game.

What’s Wrong with the Colorado GOP?

John Ransom thinks he knows. He’s been inside the beast and the picture isn’t pretty.  Ransom used to be active in Colorado politics and knows personally both aspirants to become chairman of the state’s GOP. He likes them both, and considers each of them friends.

But friends is friends and business is business and Ransom isn’t afraid to tell what he knows:

I said this. Ashley Herzog just says it better.

The mainstream media is slanted, biased, prejudiced and has its own agenda. Ashley Herzog has been a journalist for years and therefore wasn’t surprised when the MSM derided Wayne LaPierre’s sound bite – “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” – by trying to turn it into a

The San Antonio Theater Shooting the Media Ignored

At approximately 9:25PM on Sunday night, December 16th, just two days after the horrific shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, Jesus Manuel Garcia, age 19, entered the China Garden restaurant across the mall from the Santikos Mayan Palace 14 theater complex in San Antonio, Texas, looking for his ex-girlfriend. Angered that she had just broken up with him, he sent her a text message that he planned to go to the restaurant where she worked and “shoot somebody.”

Before she could warn patrons at the restaurant Garcia entered and started shooting. One bullet slightly wounded one patron while others scattered out the exit doors and headed for the safety of the theater lobby across the mall. Garcia chased them and continued shooting.

This got the attention of an off-duty security guard, Bexar County sheriff’s Sgt. Lisa Castellano, who chased Garcia to the back of the theater where he ducked into the men’s room. When he emerged, Castellano shot him four times which immediately and effectively ended the threat. Garcia was handcuffed with the help of another off-duty officer and was taken to the hospital where he was listed in stable condition. Garcia was charged with attempted capital murder of a police officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and his bail was set at $1 million.

In reporting the incident, the local CBS affiliate tried to link the shooting with
