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...

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?

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,

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:

President Trump Signs Executive Actions to Revive Keystone and Dakota Access Pipeline Projects

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, January 24, 2017:

President Donald Trump signed three executive actions on Tuesday reviving action on the Keystone XL and Dakota Access oil pipeline construction projects aborted by former President Obama.

Trump said he wants to seek a “better deal” on the Keystone XL Pipeline and asked TransCanada Corporation to resubmit its application for permission to complete the project. He added, “If we’re going to build pipelines in the United States, the pipes should be made in the United States.” Approvals of both projects are “subject to terms and conditions to be negotiated by us.”

Former President Obama iced the Keystone project in 2015 after seven years of stalling and delays, deciding after all that it wasn’t in the best interests of the United States to complete it. And the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers pulled its prior approval of completion of the Dakota Access pipeline last September following outrage, accompanied by violence, by environmentalist activists and members of Indian tribes allegedly concerned about water pollution and disturbing cultural sites.

Trump was careful to use “executive actions” on Tuesday, instead of “executive orders,” in his nod to move ahead with both projects. As Tom Murse, a contributing writer on U.S. government policies for About.com, noted:

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.

Sign from the John Birch Society advocating US withdrawal from the United Nations

The election of Donald Trump has generated much buzz in the mainstream media over the inaccuracy of the polls, why the American people voted as they did, and of course, what Trump will do as president. The buzz has also included claims that Trump will undo much of what has been done under Obama, that he will imperil our “democracy,” and that “Trumpism” is the latest manifestation of The John Birch Society. The New American magazine recently had the opportunity to sit down with and interview Arthur R. Thompson, the CEO of The John Birch Society, and ask him about this, his thoughts about this past election, and also what lies ahead for the Society in the coming years. Thompson (shown on the right, with interviewer Christopher Gomez) became CEO of The John Birch Society in 2005 and is now in his 11th year.

Obama’s Labor Secretary Wants To Be DNC Chair

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, December 16, 2016:  

Just as Representative Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) was getting comfortable as the front-runner for chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), along came Labor Secretary Tom Perez (shown) on Thursday to challenge him for the position. Perez, who will be out of a job come January 20, directed his opening salvo at Ellison: “Now, more than ever, I believe we need a full-time chair who can inspire people, grow our party, and speak to the broad tent.”

Ellison, if elected chair of the DNC (the vote will take place in late February), would be

Not Missing an Opportunity, Radicals Descend on Cannon Ball, North Dakota

And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Starting in 1969 with the Club of Rome’s declaration that “The common enemy of humanity is man,” green radicals have been seeking or creating opportunities to promote the concept that man is the great polluter and his capitalist efforts to use resources to improve his standard of living should be resisted.

On Wednesday morning Dr. Ben Carson, the gifted and now-retired neurosurgeon at Johns Hopkins Hospital, posted on his Facebook page that an “announcement was forthcoming.” The day before he’d interviewed with Donald Trump’s team about becoming the secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Carson added: “After serious discussions with the Trump transition team, I feel that I can make a significant contribution, particularly to making our inner cities great for everyone. We have much work to do in strengthening every aspect of our nation and ensuring that both our physical infrastructure and our spiritual infrastructure are solid.”

Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist, a young-earth creationist, and scoffs at the idea that God created the earth with a Big Bang. He has challenged evolutionists to debate the matter but there are no records of any such debates taking place.

Greenies, Lefties Protest Dakota Access Pipeline With Violence

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, November 22, 2016:  

The standoff between law-enforcement officials and environmentalists determined to stall completion of the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline (shown) turned violent late Sunday night. About 400 protesters set two trucks on fire near Cannon Ball, South Dakota (which sits on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation), and when sheriff’s deputies moved in to quell the accelerating riot they were met with a rain of rocks and flaming logs. At least one officer was struck on the head.

All the mainstream media could do was point out that law enforcement used high-pressure water from fire trucks to push back the crowd, along with firing rubber bullets and tear gas grenades. Little was said in the MSM that the crowd had been given multiple orders to disperse as they were trespassing on private land and causing damage.

According to Rob Keller, a spokesman for the sheriff’s department, “Protesters were given multiple orders to back up. But these agitators were a little more aggressive and did not back down, and that’s why there was [this] force used.” Keller added:

With Debbie Wasserman Schultz out as DNC chair in July, and Donna Brazile’s temp job as interim chair ending shortly, top Democrats are searching for just the right person to bring the Democrat Party back from extinction following its near obliteration last Tuesday. He must be able to think on his feet, survive scandals, bury opponents, deflect accusations, accept high-risk endorsements, and vote against the Constitution. If he’s black, that’s a plus. If he’s a radical Muslim, even better.

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,

When Barbara Williams, Tom Hayden’s third wife, discovered that her husband, Tom Hayden, had died on Sunday, one of the first things she did was to let the New York Times know. He’d had a stroke last year but it didn’t incapacitate him severely enough to keep him from attending the Democratic Party’s national convention as a delegate in July. But it was enough to do him in. He fell ill while at the convention and never recovered.

Apparently she knew that the Times would treat his passing with all the dignity usually accorded one of their own:
