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...

Will Rogers, Meet Andrew McCabe

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, May 29, 2017:

FBI Badge & gun.

Will Rogers is credited for noting that “Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.” Andrew McCabe is about to suffer the consequences of not following Will’s wisdom.

When Joe Lieberman withdrew his nomination for FBI Director last week, he claimed it was because of a potential conflict of interest in that he works for the same law firm as Trump’s lawyer who is defending the president against the faux Russia investigation. In reality,

Brazil Continues to Stagger as Economy Slows, Corruption Probe Expands

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, March 8, 2017:

Brazil’s economy, once Latin America’s largest and most prosperous, shrank again last year by 3.6 percent following a similar shrinkage in 2015 of 3.8 percent. This marks the country’s worst recessionary period since records started being kept. The best possible scenario for 2017 is an expansion of less than one percent.

The New American has been following the rolling and accelerating disaster since the onset of Operation Car Wash, the investigation into political corruption at the government’s highest levels, which began nearly three years ago. At the time the economy had fallen from a gain of more than 10 percent in 2010, placing Brazil at the top of the BRIC nations (Russia, India, China, South Africa, Brazil) which were touted as contenders to outproduce the Western economies by 2025. No one mentions BRIC any longer.

Instead it’s all about the failing economy and the Operation Car Wash corruption investigation.

Federal Investigation Into Chicago Police Following Same Pattern as Baltimore

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, January 13, 2017:

The federal Department of Justice’s final report of its “Investigation of the Chicago Police Department” was released on Friday and, as expected, it sounded very similar to the one it completed on the Baltimore Police Department. That investigation led to a consent decree approved by Baltimore’s City Council on Thursday. There’s no reason to doubt the same outcome in Chicago.

From the Chicago report:

Moment of Truth for Koskinen in Probe of IRS Targeting of Conservatives

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 14, 2016:  

Representative John Fleming (R-La.), a member of the House Freedom Caucus, filed a motion on Tuesday to bring a “privileged resolution” to the House floor calling for the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen (shown). He told reporters at a press conference that “after so many months of waiting, it was time to move forward.”

Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the chairman of the caucus, agreed, saying, “On Thursday we’ll find out if we actually have the votes and move forward.”

Skepticism abounds.

Violating Rule Number One Costs Careless Silicon Valley Investors Millions

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, August 8, 2016:  

Every investor has, or at least should have, rules. A few good ones are: If your barber starts giving you investment advice, find another barber. Tips are for waiters. Never get into something that you can’t get out of. Always set a stop loss. If you miss one opportunity, don’t worry: there’s another one right behind it.  Wherever possible, hedge. And so on.

Above all these is Rule Number One, a rule so hackneyed it’s almost embarrassing to put it down on paper:

Will this Effort Finally Break Through the Clintons’ Teflon Coating?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, July 15, 2016:  

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)

Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)

The chemical name for Teflon is Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE. For Hillary Clinton it’s called the Mainstream Media. They have the same properties: nothing can get through. Appropriately it is used not only to coat pans and other cookware but also as a “graft” material (pun intended) in surgical procedures to keep bacteria and other infectious agents from adhering.

Marsha Blackburn may have the solution (pun still intended):

Disbarment Charges Filed Against Prosecutor in Freddie Gray Case

English: Baltimore Inner Harbor

English: Baltimore Inner Harbor

Calling Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby a “runaway prosecutor” in the Freddie Gray case, legal activist and law professor John Banzhaf filed a complaint last Thursday with the Maryland Bar Counsel. He demanded an investigation into her mishandling of the prosecution of six officers involved in the Freddie Gray case on several grounds:

How to Destroy the Criminal Justice System: The Freddie Gray Case

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, July 4, 2016:

English: Baltimore Harbor as seen from World Trade Center.

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.

Michel Temer, Brazil’s Interim President, is Already on the Ropes

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, June 1, 2016:  

When this writer reported that President Dilma Rousseff was being replaced by another Brazilian corruptocrat, Michel Temer, he wondered just how long the new administration might last.

That was three weeks ago.

In a tape that secretly recorded Temer in April as assuming Rousseff’s removal from office and his own ascension to it, Temer said:

Unnerving Parallels: the U.S. and Brazil

This article was published at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, May 13, 2016: 

Two news items hit the wires at nearly the same time: Early Thursday morning, following a marathon 20-hour overnight session, Brazil’s upper house voted to try President Rousseff on charges that she cooked the books while running for reelection in order to hide the country’s dreadful financial condition.

The other was the claim that James Comey, director of the FBI, said he has never heard of a “security review,” that he didn’t know what those words meant, and that

Investigators Circling Brazil’s President; “Sudden” Regime Change Likely

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, March 7, 2016:  

On March 4, more than 200 police officers and 30 tax auditors raided the homes and offices of numerous Brazilian officials involved in the Petrobras money-laundering scandal in an investigation dubbed “Operation Car Wash.” The biggest fish caught in their net was none other than Brazil’s former President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (shown above), known as “Lula.” If he is charged and convicted, it will represent a serious breach in the wall of innocence surrounding Brazil’s current President Dilma Rousseff, who has declared from the beginning that she knew nothing about the pay-to-play scheme.

Brian Winter, vice president of Americas Society/Council for the Americas, said this of Lula’s arrest:

Hillary, the Mistress of Deception, Learned from the Master

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, July 28, 2015:  

Bill Clinton

Being mentored by one of the masters in deflection, neutralization and obfuscation certainly hasn’t hurt Hillary Clinton in her run for the White House. Time after time, something that should have penetrated the steel hull of her battleship and sunk it into the pages of history has just bounced off it instead, leaving believers awestruck and opponents gnashing their teeth.

She’ll need every skill learned at the feet of her husband, Bill Clinton, who navigated his way through a political career pockmarked with potential career-ending incidents. She polished them during a Clinton-friendly interview at CNN on July 7, with partisan Brianna Keilar:

IRS Apologizes … for what?

The IRS is an enforcement tool. FDR used the IRS for his own political purposes. So did Tricky Dicky Nixon. A year ago various “Tea Party” and “Patriot” groups started complaining that they were being targeted for special attention by the IRS as they applied for tax exempt status. What did they expect?
