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...

Dakota Access Final Tally: 750 Arrested, 24,000 Tons of Trash Left, and $1 Million Cleanup Bill

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, March 1, 2017:

So much for “environmentalists” really caring about the environment.

The North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (DES) said on Tuesday that a Florida-based clean-up company it hired to clear trash, waste, and debris from the Oceti Sakowin camp protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline has already run up a bill of $1 million after hauling away from the site 24,000 tons of trash, garbage, rotting food, tents, teepees, sleeping bags, dozens of empty propane tanks, human excrement, and several automobiles. They also left behind two dogs and six puppies, apparently abandoned.

When The New American reported a month ago on protesters polluting the environment they allegedly claimed to revere, the amount of time, effort, and money it would take to clear the site was understated.

Baltimore PD Now Arm of the DOJ; Chicago to Follow

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, January 16, 2017:  

Baltimore Police Department

On Thursday, the Baltimore City Council assented to the final step in turning the Baltimore Police Department (BPD) into a de facto branch of the Department of Justice: it agreed to be bound by a “consent decree” – 227 pages of federal regulations, mandates, and rules that now control even the minutest behaviors of every employee of the BPD, from beat cop to the top.

The strategy begins with an “incident,”

Saul Alinsky’s Influence in Washington is Already Being Reduced by Trump

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, December 30, 2016:  

Français : Logo SEIU

One of Saul Alinsky’s rules, perhaps the most vicious, is this:

The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive – but real – allies of the Haves. The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means.

In other words, anything goes if the end merits it.

This is what has driven the Service Employees International Union – the SEIU – for years. Whatever means used to achieve a given end are acceptable. This is what Kenneth Gladney learned the hard way in 2009 when he was peaceably protesting ObamaCare. At a St. Louis town hall meeting, four SEIU thugs surrounded him and taught him the lesson:

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,

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.

Hermann Goering, #BlackLivesMatter, and Local Police Departments

Operating as Adolph Hitler’s Number Two man in charge of the Prussian police department, Hermann Goering began filling it with Nazi Party members. When it was merged with other local police departments, Goering wanted to name it the Secret Police Office but decided that its initials – GPA – looked and sounded too much like the Russian GPU. So instead he named it Geheime Staatspolizei – the Gestapo.

German tradition had favored local police, so when Goering demanded that the Gestapo have authority over all police departments in the country, he had to get permission from Hitler. Hitler agreed. Local police departments, for all intents and purposes, disappeared.

Is that what progressives and their allies in the media, the White House, and the Department of Justice really want?

Suzette Kelo, Vera Coking and Donald Trump

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, August 28, 2015:  

It’s likely that neither Suzette Kelo nor Vera Coking ever met Donald Trump, but they certainly know how he operates. Eminent domain, under the Fifth Amendment, says that “no person shall be … deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.” Suzette lost her property, and Vera nearly did, by developers seizing on that malleable and flexible language and turning it into a tool of thuggery, using government agents instead of bandits, to forcibly remove owners from their privately owned homes and land.

A developer in New London, Connecticut, used a government-created entity to declare that Kelo’s property was condemned in favor of a

Neo-Luddites in Paris are Losing to Uber

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, June 29, 2015:

Although the definition of “neo-Luddism” is a “movement of passive resistance to the … frightening technologies of the computer age,” in Paris the resistance is hardly passive. Last week taxi-drivers shut down entrances to and exits from the Charles De Gaulle International Airport, attacked cars driven by Uber drivers (including their passengers), overturned some of them, and set tires on fire. All this to express their frustration over how Uber is slowly, inexorably, putting them out of business. Since they were on strike, even when customers wanted a ride, the cartel members turned them down. After all, they were on strike! (Shown above are passengers toting their own luggage away from De Gaulle airport.)

As the head of taxi company G7 said on French television,

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.

AG Holder Teaches Idaho Senator a Lesson

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, March 20, 2015: 

Mike Crapo, the senior senator from Idaho, has been around the block more than once. Before being elected to the Senate in 1999, he served as the state’s representative in the House for three terms prior. Before that he served as a state senator, and the state senate president from 1988 to 1992.

It’s safe to say that he’s run into his share of thugs, criminals, and ideologues so that nothing that Eric Holder, soon to be former Attorney General, does would surprise him.

Last fall Crapo and four other senators wrote Holder a nice, polite letter asking him to please

Webley Pocket revolver in .38 S&W

On Tuesday a reporter from Newsweek called Rabbi Manachem Margolin to clarify what he meant about Jews owning weapons to defend themselves against terrorist attacks like those perpetrated by armed terrorists in Paris last week. He said:

Just a gun. I’m not referring to tanks. It’s not about heavy weapons. It’s just that everyone should have something in their pocket.

For years Rabbi Margolin – the General Director of the European Jewish Association and the Rabbinical Centre of Europe – the largest federation of Jewish organizations in Europe – has been trying to get European governments to soften their anti-gun stance and allow Jews to carry guns to defend themselves. He told the Washington Free Beacon:

Mayor Bill de Blasio is developing a reputation as a highly skilled expert in self-immolation. Right after having police officers turn their back on him at the Brooklyn hospital where the bodies of the two officers assassinated on Saturday, December 20 were taken, he reappointed a leftist judge who freed a thug who threatened the police just days after their murders.

Service Employees Int’l Union Suing Fast-food Stores for “Wage Theft”

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, December 8, 2014:

The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) joined with New York State’s attorney general and filed suit against Ron Johnson, the owner of five Papa John’s pizza stores in downtown Manhattan, for “wage theft” back in October. The two interlocked forces are seeking $2 million in damages for failing, according to the two plaintiffs, to pay adequately more than 400 pizza delivery drivers.

According to the Daily Signal, SEIU and New York’s attorney general really don’t work out of the same office, but they might as well. The statement from AG Eric Schneiderman contained this comment from Kendall Fells, the organizing director for Fast Food Forward:

ACORN is Alive and Well and Suing Papa John’s

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, December 8, 2014: 

 

If Wikipedia is to be believed, the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN – no longer exists:

At its peak ACORN had over 500,000 members and more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in over 100 cities across the US….

 

Its U.S. offices filed for Chapter 7 liquidation on November 2, 2010, effectively closing the organization.

Except for this pesky footnote:

Many ACORN members and organizers formed new state-wide organizations.

One of those freshly-minted state-wide organizations is Fast Food Forward (FFF), located in the same building with the same second-floor office address as New York Communities for Change (NYCC), which received nearly $2.5 million from the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) in 2012. The New York Post reported that the NYCC is the dregs of Brooklyn’s former ACORN office.

Far from being deceased or even dormant, FFF’s “organizing director,” Kendall Falls, was

Obama Way Over His Head at the APEC Summit

Xi Jinping. China’s “Paramount Leader”

Nowhere was President Obama’s shrinking influence in world affairs more apparent than when he opened the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Beijing earlier this week by announcing an “agreement” with China’s “paramount leader,” Xi Jinping, to extend visas in both countries from one year to ten. The enhancements will have little real world impact but they served to give Obama the appearance of being a player.

A U.S. visa only serves as preliminary permission to seek admission to the United States. Final admission remains, as it always has, in the hands of a U.S. Customs and Border Protection officer who, after questioning and investigation of the nonimmigrant’s purposes, will then issue a Form I-94. That form serves as the official government document authorizing the alien’s stay in the country.

Nevertheless, Obama made the most of it:

Putin yuks it up with another tyrant

Like two bullies taunting each other in a schoolyard, US President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin have been trading barbs since March. In response to Russia’s incursions into the Ukraine, on March 20 Obama blacklisted a bank and several wealthy businessmen with close ties to Putin. Obama targeted Sergei Ivanoff, the president’s chief of staff, Gennady Timchenko, a billionaire investor linked to Putin, and Yuri Kovalchuk, who is the personal banker for Russia’s leaders including Mr. Putin himself. At the time, Obama opened the door for additional sanctions against core elements of the Russian economy if Putin didn’t behave himself, including the oil and natural gas industries, metals and mining industries, and engineering and financial services industries.

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:
