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...

Why Mainstream Media Ignored the Story of the Capture of Two Escaped Convicts

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, June 19, 2017: 

At a press conference in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, homeowner Patrick Hale gave all credit to Jesus Christ for the anti-climactic capture of two escaped convicts that occurred on his driveway last week. Though there were a dozen microphones lined up to hear his story, few, if any, were from the mainstream media. Said Hale:

Media Ignores Ongoing Socialist Disaster Unfolding in Venezuela

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 31, 2017: 

Media Research Center (MRC), the conservative media watchdog whose stated mission is to “prove through sound scientific research, that liberal bias in the media does exist,” reported on Tuesday more evidence that the media is now guilty of publishing “no news,” at least when the subject is the ongoing meltdown taking place in Venezuela.

Readers of these pages are well-informed about that meltdown:

Harvard Study Confirms Media Bias Against Trump

Thomas Patterson, Harvard’s Bradlee Professor of Government and the Press, opened his study of “News Coverage of Donald Trump’s First 100 Days” by noting not only that President Trump was the topic of more than 40 percent of all news stories during his first 100 days (three times the amount of press coverage received by previous presidents), but also that the coverage he received “set … a new standard for unfavorable press coverage of a president.”

What’s surprising isn’t Patterson’s conclusion, which readers of The New American likely agree with, but the source:

Whistleblowers Ask Trump to Drop Investigation Into WikiLeaks

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 17, 2017:  

The Courage Foundation released a letter on Monday signed by more than 100 free speech activists (including Noam Chomsky and Edward Snowden) asking President Donald Trump to drop his administration’s investigation into Julian Assange and his organization WikiLeaks.

The Courage Foundation funds legal defense for whistleblowers and journalists such as Assange and Snowden. The letter presses the point that the real issue is freedom of the press under the First Amendment:

The threat to WikiLeaks escalates a long-running war of attrition against the great virtue of the United States: free speech. The Obama Administration prosecuted more whistleblowers than all presidents combined and opened a Grand Jury investigation into WikiLeaks that had no precedent….

 

It is reported that charges, including conspiracy, theft of government property and violating the Espionage Act are being considered against members of WikiLeaks, and that charging WikiLeaks Editor, Julian Assange, is now a priority of the Department of Justice.

This refers to Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ comments during his visit to the southern border last month:

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?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, March 6, 2017:

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,

Baltimore’s State Attorney Marilyn Mosby About to Face Her Moment of Truth

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, January 13, 2017:

A federal judge just allowed a lawsuit brought against Baltimore’s state attorney Marilyn Mosby to proceed. The lawsuit, filed by five of the six officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray (in mural, center) in 2015, will move to “discovery” – the phase where, under oath, Mosby and her enablers, including deputy Sheriff Samuel Cogen, must answer questions about those charges.

To review: Freddie Gray, a young black punk with a rap sheet containing 20 charges, mostly drug-related, ran from

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:

On Wednesday evening Bill O’Reilly, host of The O’Reilly Factor, offered his solution to gun violence: make all gun crimes federal crimes to be enforced at the federal level. “That way,” he claimed, “American law enforcement everywhere can not only take guns off the streets but people who illegally carry them and/or use them to commit crimes … and the upshot, pardon the pun, is that legal gun owners would be left alone.”

He expanded on this trashing of precious gun rights by federal police:

Gallup’s Latest Poll: Americans’ Respect for Local Police Is Surging

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 25, 2016:  

The results from Gallup’s annual poll on crime were released last week, and they showed greatly increased support for local police all across the board, regardless of demographics or political persuasion. The double-digit surge over last year was measured by responses to several questions asked in early October, including “How much respect do you have for the police in your area — a great deal, some, or hardly any?” Last year, 64 percent of those polled responded “a great deal,” while this year the percentage jumped to

Venezuela’s Congress Calls Maduro’s Blocking of Recall Vote a “Coup”

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

The economic chaos in Venezuela turned political on Sunday. When Brazil’s President Nicolas Maduro’s National Electoral Council (CNE), packed with his cronies, declared attempts to call for a national recall referendum on Maduro’s presidency null and void on Friday, opposition leaders called it a “coup.” A resolution was passed by the National Assembly (under control of Maduro’s opposition since January), declaring that the Congress would try Maduro starting on Tuesday, while also calling for national public protest demonstrations on Wednesday.

Julio Borges, the opposition leader, said,

China’s Third-quarter GDP Numbers Draw Skepticism

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, October 19, 2016: 

National emblem of the People's Republic of China

Last Sunday the Wall Street Journal said it expected China’s third-quarter GDP numbers, to be released on Wednesday, “to show the [Chinese] economy grew by at least 6.7%, on pace with the first and second quarters.” Lo and behold, when those numbers were released by Chinese officials on Wednesday, they were exactly 6.7 percent, which were exactly the same as in the first and second quarters. That is the first time since 1992 that any country’s economy grew at exactly the same rate for three consecutive quarters.

This didn’t matter to much of the national media, which reported the numbers as legitimate and then added commentary and color to bolster their reports. For example,

New York’s Attorney General Orders Trump Foundation to Halt Fundraising

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 4, 2016:  

The day after the Washington Post announced that it had determined that Donald Trump’s foundation hadn’t filed the proper paperwork in order to solicit contributions from New Yorkers, the state’s attorney general, Eric Schneiderman (above), sent a letter to Trump demanding that his foundation cease soliciting contributions, file the appropriate paperwork, including a full audit, and past audits dating back to 2008 — and do it all within the next 15 days. Otherwise, wrote James Sheehan, the chief of the state’s charities bureau, “Failure immediately to discontinue solicitation and to file information and reports shall be deemed a fraud upon the people of the state of New York.”

Trump’s response was predictable:

Second Night of Violence Follows Police Shooting in Milwaukee

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 15, 2016: 

Around 3:30 pm on Saturday, two Milwaukee, Wisconsin, police officers observed an automobile being driven “erratically” and performed a traffic stop. Two individuals fled, one of them turning toward the officers with a firearm in his hand. One of the officers fired, hitting him twice. One of the rounds was fatal. The incident lasted 25 seconds and was recorded by the body cam worn by the officer.

In normal times, it’s likely the incident would have been page three news, especially as Milwaukee suffers from a high crime rate. But these are not normal times.

The brouhaha over Donald Trump’s revocation of press credentials from the Washington Post has reignited the question: can the press lie in order to prove a point or promote an agenda?

The Donald doesn’t think so. On Monday morning, following the massacre in Orlando, Trump said this on Facebook:

I am no fan of President Obama, but to show you how dishonest the phony Washington Post is, they wrote, “Donald Trump Suggests President Obama Was Involved With Orlando shooting” as their headline. Sad!

Twenty minutes later he pulled the plug on WaPo journos:

Irony and Hypocrisy on Full Public Display Following Massacre at Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs Last Week
