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...

The FBI Tracks the Success of BLM in Breaking Down Local Law Enforcement

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, September 28, 2016: 


Accuracy in Media has done yeoman, even ground-breaking, work in exposing the radical, communist background of the Black Lives Matter movement:

[It] casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner-city frustration, but [it] is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades.


Its agitation has provoked police killings and other violence, lawlessness, and unrest in minority communities throughout the U.S….

BLM’s success started being tracked last May by, of all newspapers, the leftist Guardian, which permitted its reporter Lois Beckett to ask if the “Ferguson Effect” – the withdrawing of aggressive police action against street criminals out of fear of personal reprisals, reprimands, or worse – was really behind the rise in violent crime. The short answer:

CIA Director John Brennan Probably Isn’t a Communist

John Brennan

He’s not a duck, either, but he talks like one and hangs around with other ducks who speak the same language. Relevant is Brennan’s visit to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation last week, where he told the left-wing crowd that if he could get into the CIA with his record, so could they.

The Foundation has close ties to the Congressional Black Caucus, which has more than 40 members with backgrounds so criminal and extreme that each of them rates a special page at DiscoverTheNetworks.org. Among them are names that are no doubt familiar to students of the left, including

East Coast Bomber’s Father Warned Police About His Son in 2014

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 20, 2016:  

In 2014, the East Coast bomber’s father told FBI agents that his son was a terrorist. The father, Mohammad Rahami, told the New York Times:

Two years ago I go to the FBI because my son [Ahmad Khan Rahami, shown] was doing really bad, O.K.? But they check almost two months [and] they say: “He’s O.K., he’s clean, he’s not a terrorist.”

I say O.K.

It’s not OK.

When the hacktivist group calling themselves DCLeaks released “restricted” documents it obtained from the Internet servers of the Open Society Foundation of George Soros, none of the major so-called watchdog media mentioned it.

Trump’s New Advisor Conway to Wage “War of Attrition” on Clinton

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 22, 2016:  

Hired in July to augment Donald Trump’s campaign staff and then promoted to be his campaign manager six weeks later, Kellyanne Conway (pictured) has announced, “We’re in a war of attrition” in the campaign against Hillary Clinton.

A war of attrition is won when the enemy has sustained such continuous and devastating losses that he (or she) leaves the field of contest. And that’s why, says Conway, “The content-free campaign is over. We are going to force the conversation to issues, because the issues favor Donald Trump.”

Conway may just have what it will take to win that war.

California’s Gun Violence Restraining Orders: Grandpa Older, Armed, Therefore Dangerous?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 22, 2016:  

Richard Swift could be anyone’s grandfather. Born in 1949, he grew up around guns. He got his first .22 at age 12 and learned how to pick off rodents on his family farm in southeastern Pennsylvania. Said Swift: “Mostly, I was just shooting things that were there, like a stick floating down the creek. I’d shoot bumblebees if they settled on a limb … any kind of small, challenging target.”

When he joined the National Guard, he competed in marksmanship matches, and when he delivered cash between branches of a local bank, he carried a firearm for protection.

But now he’s retired and still owns that .22, along with a couple of other rifles, two pistols, and a pair of shotguns. And he has no plans to dispose of any of them.

And that makes Shannon Frattaroli very nervous.

Rights Are Lost Slowly, Over Time, and Then All at Once

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, August 22, 2016:  

German Pastor Richard Niemoller (pictured) wasn’t the first to discover how totalitarians complete their takeover, but he is remembered for waxing poetic about just how the strategy works:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Socialist.


Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Trade Unionist.


Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – because I was not a Jew.


Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.

In the early 1930s, Niemoller supported Hitler. But when he observed the tyrant’s strategy of isolating his enemies and then eliminating them one by one, he opposed him. Niemoller spent years in a German concentration camp, and, upon his release in 1946, explained what he had seen with his own eyes:

New York Times Interpreted Trump’s Remarks as Violent, Compliant Media Echoed

The unofficial mouthpiece of the left

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, speaking at a rally in Wilmington, North Carolina, on Tuesday, said this:

Hillary wants to abolish – essentially abolish – the Second Amendment. By the way, if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people – maybe there is, I don’t know.


But I tell you what, that will be a horrible day. If Hillary gets to put her judges in, right now we’re tied.

CIA Waiting for Venezuelan Protests to Turn Sufficiently Violent

For at least the last two years, Venezuela’s Marxist President, Nicolas Maduro, has claimed that part of his problems stem from interventions planned by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). And for years most commentators and observers have written off those claims as more Marxist madness voiced by a dictator completely infused with paranoia.

However, analysts at the Center for Research on Globalization (CRG), headquartered in Montreal since 2001, have been watching and reporting on those plans by both the CIA and U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). If their research is accurate, and the protests in Caracas and three other cities in Venezuela turn sufficiently violent and bloody, the CIA may

Sheriff David Clarke: Blunt, Courageous, Unflappable

Anonmyous protestors pose for group picture.JPG

Sheriff David Clarke has been in law enforcement in Milwaukee for 38 years but only gained national attention in 2013 when he told his constituents that they couldn’t rely on law enforcement for protection and that they should arm themselves.

His circle of influence expanded as his “law and order” message began to resonate in light of the increasing attacks on police. He singled out Black Lives Matter as the primary mover, calling them Black Lies Matter, and calling them out for their revolutionary rhetoric and actions that were endangering police and costing more and more of them their lives.

In the last ten days Clarke has seen his influence and message expand further,

Black Lives Matter Ideology Rebuffed by Black Scholar

Founded by Marxists and serving as one of many front groups for the Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO), the Black Lives Matter movement’s primary purpose is to overthrow the government of the United States and to replace it with a totalitarian dictatorship. One of the stumbling blocks to BLM and FRSO, happily, is the fact that local police are outside of federal control.

If local police can be replaced with federal or national police forces, the rest is easy:

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.

On Monday the Supreme Court handed down a ruling, 6-2, that people convicted of domestic abuse can lose their Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms. The only justice who even seemed to care about that was Justice Clarence Thomas, who dissented. Sonia Sotomayor also dissented, for different reasons.

Two Maine residents were convicted under state law — similar to laws in 33 other states — a decade ago of committing domestic violence. When it later turned out that they owned firearms, they were charged

Official Congressional portrait of Congressman John Lewis.

Seeing an opportunity that couldn’t be wasted, Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.) led a Progressive sit-in that brought to a halt the proceedings of the House of Representatives this week.

Lewis, a longtime radical revolutionary with Communist Party affiliations, led the sit-in, blaming it on Republicans’ unwillingness to bring to the floor a vote on expanding background checks and adding suspected terrorists to a “no fly/no-buy” watchlist. The sit-in began at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and, at its peak, numbered nearly 170 House Democrats (along with several Democrat senators) before it petered out around 3 a.m. today (Thursday).

Some called it grandstanding while others called it

The President Speaks and Gun Sales Soar, Again

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, June 15, 2016:  

Sixteen times since he was first inaugurated, President Obama has chosen to speak against guns following a shooting. Sixteen times he has either directly or indirectly assailed American citizens’ right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Sixteen times he has demanded that Congress do something about it. Sixteen times the American people have bought more guns.

Monday’s speech was no different. He spoke of the “assault” rifle used by the monster in the Orlando shooting on Sunday morning. He spoke of how “easy” it was for the shooter to obtain his weapons:

It appears that he was able to obtain these weapons legally because he did not have a criminal record….

It was not difficult for him to obtain these kinds of weapons….

We are … so lax in how we make very powerful firearms available to people in this country….

We ignore the problems with easy access to firearms….

We have to make sure that it is not easy for somebody … to be able to obtain weapons….

How easy it is for [self-radicalized individuals] to obtain weapons….

We make it very easy for individuals … to get very powerful weapons very quickly. And that’s a problem.

Translation: Government is determined to make it more difficult than it already is for honest law-abiding citizens to purchase a firearm. Result? Those honest law-abiding citizens head to the gun store.

Target World, a gun store in Cincinnati, is seeing a spike in gun sales, including people who have never bought a gun before. Said Bob Freeland, who brought his girlfriend to the store to buy her first gun, “It’s not at all out of the ordinary for gun sales to spike following mass shootings. Here at Target World people are buying everything from AR-15s, hunting rifles and handguns.” Said his girlfriend, Kimberly, “With the concerns in the United States, it’s just — you don’t feel safe anywhere you go, so I decided to go ahead and purchase a gun.”

The Gun Room, Denver’s oldest firearms dealer, is seeing three to four times the usual volume of sales following Orlando. Background checks are taking hours to complete, not just minutes as they usually do.

Hunters Warehouse in Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, sells firearms to dealers over the Internet and the owner, Tom Engle, told reporters for WeAreCentralPa that, as of early Tuesday morning, his store had sold between 13,000 and 15,000 semi-automatic rifles through his website since the shooting.

And many are new, and different, customers. More are women and older people arming themselves for the first time. And another niche has opened up: the lesbian and gay community. Pink Pistols is a national gun club for the LGBT population that saw its membership more than double over the weekend, with dozens of new chapters being started.

Gun makers are seeing their stocks rise in tandem with the increased demand. Sturm, Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson have seen their stock prices soar as well. Smith & Wesson Holding Company (stock symbol: SWHC) has seen its stock rise from $3 a share to over $21 since 2011, a seven-fold increase. One analyst has charted the sixteen times that Obama has railed against guns against SWHC stock. Every time the president speaks against guns, SWHC stock moves higher.

If anti-gunners were really interested in reducing the number of guns owned by Americans they would keep their mouths shut, or else talk about real remedies to thwart terrorist attacks by radical Muslims and others, such as eliminating gun-free zones and encouraging even more Americans to exercise their Second Amendment-guaranteed rights. But, no. The push by totalitarians to remove guns from innocent citizens is so strong that they warn the citizenry of more sanctions against guns, and the more strident the attacks, the more those citizens head to the gun stores to stock up.

Chicago vs. Rio: the Race to the Bottom

With the summer Olympic Games less than two months away, tourists are being warned by various websites to be careful – very careful – if they plan to visit. Those websites, two of which are listed under Sources below, put Rio on the top-ten list of the most dangerous/violent cities in the world. Between 1978 and 2000, for example, nearly 50,000 citizens of the city have been murdered. Ten thousand extra police are training for special duty during the Olympics to keep that statistic from getting larger.

Chicago is vying for a place on those lists. The murders occurred so rapidly over Memorial Day weekend that

Seattle Gun & Ammo Tax Appealed to Higher Court

Map of Washington highlighting King County

When Seattle’s city council unanimously passed an ordinance last August taxing guns and ammunition ($25 per firearm and 2¢ to 5¢ per round, depending upon caliber), it was sold as a revenue-raising tactic and not an attack on gun owners’ rights or the Second Amendment. It was sold as a way to raise between $300,000 and $500,000 to “study” gun violence and implement programs to reduce the excessive gun violence in Seattle.

The National Rifle Association (NRA), the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), and the National Shooting Sports Federation (NSSF), along with some gun owners and gun-store owners, filed suit. They claimed that the tax was in effect a

It’s often helpful to look into the background of a politician promoting a ballot issue on the chance that that look might reveal a hidden agenda. So it appears with California’s Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. Last year he announced that he was creating a petition for some anti-gun legislation that, if successful, would appear on this year’s November ballot. Last week he announced that he had secured 600,000 signatures for his petition, more than enough for it to be on the ballot.

The agenda is right in line with the anti-gun mentality expressed by

Sanders and Cruz Win Wisconsin, Extending Their Campaigns

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, April 6, 2016;  

Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

On the Democratic side, Senator Bernie Sanders took 47 of Wisconsin’s delegates on Tuesday, leaving front-runner Hillary Clinton with 36. This keeps Clinton in the lead with 1,748 delegates to Sander’s 1,058. Despite Sanders’ repeated insistence that many of the 469 “superdelegates” in Clinton’s column should come over to his side, precious few have so far, leaving him with just 31. Two thousand three hundred eighty-two delegates are needed to win on the first ballot in July. With Clinton ahead of Sanders in polls in the delegate-rich states of New York (247), Pennsylvania (189), and California (475), it’s all but over but the throwing of confetti and releasing of the balloons for Hillary in Philadelphia.
