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...

Black Lives Matter Spawned by a Self-Defense Shooting Eight Years Ago

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, December 6, 2019: 

Three Marxists needed a “cause célèbre” and the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in February 2012 served perfectly. From that incident arose Black Lives Matter (BLM), an entity which continues to plague our society, and local police, to this day.

The lawsuit filed by Zimmerman on Tuesday against Martin’s parents, their family attorney, and related parties for $100 million is serving to remind readers that big gates often swing on little hinges.

On the surface, the self-defense shooting should have been covered adequately by the local paper in Sanford, Florida: “Night watchman attacked, kills attacker in self-defense.” End of story.

Except that the attacker was black and the defender was white

George Zimmerman Sues Trayvon Martin’s Parents, Others for $100 Million Claiming Coverup During His Trial

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, December 5, 2019: 

In a lawsuit filed by his attorney on Tuesday, George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who was forced to defend himself using deadly force against Trayvon Martin the night of February 26, 2012, claimed that many parties involved in his trial fabricated evidence in an attempt to convict him of murder.

Their efforts failed when he was found not guilty. But the manipulations behind the attempt to convict Zimmerman of murder just recently came to light. Hence the lawsuit.

Zimmerman named Martin’s parents, Martin’s alleged girlfriend and her coached “stand in,” the Martin family attorney, the prosecutor, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in the lawsuit, claiming that each of them had a hand in “conspiring to switch and/or cover up the identity of [Martin’s girlfriend] who was the real phone witness to the events prior to Trayvon Martin’s death, by substituting an imposter and fake witness … to assist in committing perjury in sworn testimony to cause the arrest, prosecution, and sentencing to life in prison of George Zimmerman, as well as causing a federal investigation and prosecution of Zimmerman for civil rights violations.”

That’s a mouthful and sounds like grist for a John Grisham legal thriller.

Grisham should have such an imagination. The evidence came to light when a third party, Joel Gilbert, was doing a backgrounder on a documentary he was developing about Florida politico Andrew Gillum. Gillum served as city commissioner for Tallahassee when Zimmerman was forced to defend himself and later became mayor of Tallahassee.

Let Gilbert tell his story:

Americans Arming Themselves at Record Rates

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, December 3, 2019:  

Rising anti-gun rhetoric from Democrat presidential hopefuls, and the entry of anti-gun Michael Bloomberg into the fray last week, has driven background checks to record levels, according to the FBI. The agency reported that it conducted 202,465 gun background checks on Black Friday, the second-highest number since the bureau implemented the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS. The record was recorded on Black Friday 2017 when the FBI ran 203,086 checks.

While gun background checks do not have a one-on-one correlation to purchases (many purchasers buy more than one firearm with a single background check), it indicates that more Americans than ever are enjoying their Second Amendment right to purchase, possess, and use (“keep and bear”) firearms. By the end of the year it is estimated that Americans will own upwards of 400 million of them.

And the far-left progressives now in control of the Democrat Party want to take them away, or at least greatly restrict their ownership and use. 2020 Democrat presidential candidates such as Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders have used the English language to cover up their intentions, claiming they “respect” the Second Amendment but want “common sense” gun laws to reduce gun violence.

But during a Democrat debate in September, former candidate Beto O’Rourke lifted the veil: “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47!”

Matt Boggs, the owner of Alpha Dog Firearms in Tempe, Arizona, saw this blatant announcement of intent as a marketing opportunity, posting this on his store’s Facebook page:

China Using “Thousand Talents Plan” to Steal U.S. Technology and Become World Hegemon

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, November 19, 2019: 

Another effort to warn U.S. citizens of the imminent and mounting threats to their sovereignty went largely unreported on Monday. A staff report from the U.S. Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations entitled “Threats to the U.S. Research Enterprise: China’s Talent Recruitment Plans” should have been called “China’s plans to rule the World Through the Theft of U.S. Technology.”

The report details “not only the lengths and expense China has gone to in order to steal American intellectual property, but also the shocking fact [that] our own federal agencies have done little to stop their actions despite being aware of [them].”

Its summary is chilling:

Run, Do Not Walk, Away from the Aramco IPO

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, November 18, 2019: 

Even before becoming the crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) had big dreams. If he could raise $100 billion, he might be able, if he moved swiftly enough, to keep his kingdom from becoming irrelevant.

He posited the idea in 2016: sell five percent of the government’s only asset – Aramco, officially the Saudi Arabian Oil Company – to unsuspecting investors who think that it’s worth $2 trillion. In 2018, he began to draw up plans to redirect the country’s total dependence upon oil revenues towards real estate development, tourist destinations, industrial parks, improved transportation, and other infrastructure improvements. He called it his “Vision 2030.”

His path became twisted, slowing the initial offering of shares. He met resistance from inside the kingdom, so he had to do some housecleaning. There was the murder and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October, which MBS denied any knowledge of, but which forced Fitch Ratings to downgrade the government’s credit rating. And then there were the attacks on the company’s oil fields in September, letting all the world see just how vulnerable those facilities are in a highly volatile and explosive Middle East.

Nevertheless, Aramco, MBS’s “crown jewel” announced on Sunday that it is only offering 1.5% of itself for sale in December, at a price far less than MBS had hoped for. And if things don’t meet even those minimum, now greatly reduced expectations, he could pull the offering altogether before it goes public in December.

Analysts looking through the 600-page prospectus that was released last week on the deal aren’t impressed,

Mainstream Media Promotes Phony Study that Supports Their Climate Change Agenda, and Gets Caught

This article was published by the McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, November 13, 2019:

In their eagerness to promote their climate change agenda, the mainstream media grasped hold of a phony study and called it real. The outfit that released the study sounds legit. After all, it’s a prestigious nonprofit with goals that sound honorable. Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, it publishes a journal called BioScience, which it claims contains nothing but peer-reviewed articles. It seeks “to advance public policy, education, and the public understanding of science,” according to Wikipedia, and “promote an increased understanding of all life,” according to its own website. It claims that “AIBS’s ability, resilience, and integrity are the keys to our success.”

Each of those keys is being sorely tested now that it was learned that many of the 11,000 so-called “scientists” that approved of and supported the warning weren’t scientists after all. The signers included an “animal behavior” teacher in Valencia, a “scientist emeritus” in Canada, a “researcher” in the Czech Republic, a “professor” from Argentina, a “student” from a “neotropical biodiversity institute” somewhere, an obstetrician from Brussels, a Spaniard who’s into “biologo,” a Turkish mathematician, and a Finnish engineer.

Also approving the warning were “Mouse, Mickey” from the “Mickey Mouse Institute for the Blind, Nambia,” Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts, and Araminta Aardvark from the University of Neasden.

But none of this deterred august members of the Fourth Estate from reporting favorably on the warning, as its recommendations lined up with the standard global warning demands being pushed by the likes of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others. NBC News called it

Sandy Hook Lawsuit Against Remington Sent Back to State Court

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 13, 2019: 

When Connecticut’s Supreme Court overturned a lower court’s ruling last March that Remington Arms was protected from a lawsuit by families of victims of the Sandy Hook shooting, Remington appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court. Without comment, the Supreme Court on Tuesday turned back the appeal that allows the lawsuit against Remington to proceed.

The essence of the case against Remington is this:

Nunes Demands Schiff’s Committee Hear From Hunter Biden, Others

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, November 11, 2019: 

Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), the ranking minority member of the House Intelligence Committee, which he chaired before the Democrats took it over in 2018, sent a fiery letter to Chairman Adam Schiff on Saturday. He called out Schiff’s efforts to stack the deck in his so-called impeachment investigation of the president, and demanded that the roster of witnesses to be called before the committee be expanded.

Nunes attacked Schiff, reviewing his purposeful machinations to damage the president:

Adam Schiff’s “Big Top Impeachment Circus” Opens on Wednesday

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, November 11, 2019: 

Ringmaster Adam Schiff, who chairs the House Intelligence Committee, can’t wait to grab the mike and tell his breathless audience that the big show is about to begin. Everything is staged: the pre-approved performers are primed, the questions are limited to those approved by the chairman in advance, it’s “lights, camera, action!”

The only disrupter is Rep. Devin Nunes, the former chair of the committee, who lost his job when the Democrats took over in 2018. Nunes is now the ranking minority member of the committee, and is he ticked. He is outraged about the faux show that opens on Wednesday.

Nunes sent a fiery letter to Schiff on Saturday. He called out Schiff’s efforts to stack the deck in his so-called “impeachment investigation” of the president, and demanded that the roster of witnesses to be called before the committee be expanded.

A “Good Gal with a Gun” Makes All the Difference

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, November 6, 2019:

Wayne LaPierre, the NRA’s CEO and Executive Vice President, caught a lot of flak in 2012 when he said, following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 26 people dead, that “the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun.” Suggesting that teachers should be allowed to be armed, along with armed security personnel, was “ludicrous,” “an insult,” and “insane,” according to his critics.

What no one said was that LaPierre’s suggestion was “sexist.”

Jeremy King was very happy that his wife could handle a firearm just as well as he could. Not only was she his wife, she was also good with a gun.

Anti-Gunners Fail to Derail Oklahoma’s New Constitutional Carry Law

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, November 4, 2019:

Somehow Oklahoma City Democratic representative Jason Lowe didn’t get the
memo – or, if he did, he’s ignoring it: Oklahomans want full enjoyment of
their God-given rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Simply put,
those citizens want to make their own decisions on when to carry a firearm
for their own protection, and where. They don’t think they should have to
request permission from the government to exercise their rights.

In his first official act as Oklahoma’s new governor, Kevin Stitt

Shouldn’t the Catholic Church Excommunicate Joe Biden Over His Support for Abortion?

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, October 20, 2019: 

The Vatican has made its position on abortion crystal clear:

Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion.

 

This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.

 

Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:

 

You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.

 

God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves.

 

Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes.

The Vatican goes further: anyone who “cooperates” in the performance of an abortion is excommunicated: “Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.”

Biden should consider himself lucky that all he got was a slap on the wrist last Sunday when a Catholic priest denied him communion. While on a political junket in South Carolina over the weekend, Biden stopped by the St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence on Sunday morning to attend mass. The Rev. Robert E. Morey refused to serve communion to the former vice president, explaining:

Biden Denied Communion for His Pro-abortion Stance

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, October 29, 2019: 

While on a political junket in South Carolina over the weekend, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden stopped by the St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence on Sunday morning for Mass. The Reverend Robert E. Morey refused to serve communion to the former vice president, explaining:

Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden. Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself … outside of Church teaching.

But Biden claims he agrees with the church’s teaching. He just doesn’t want to impose his views on anyone else. Said Biden in an interview in 2015: “I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing [and] non-God-fearing people [who] have a different view.”

He also believes that not only is Roe v. Wade the law of the land despite the faux “right to privacy” conjured in that Supreme Court decision, he also

Trump Campaign Charges CNN With Breaking Federal Law Over Bias

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, October 20, 2109: 

Outraged over disclosures by Project Veritas that Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, is using his CNN network to attack and bring down the Trump presidency, Donald Trump’s reelection campaign sent a scathing letter to Zucker and his attorney on Wednesday. When it was released to the public on Friday the letter revealed that it charged them and the network with violating the Lanham Act.

James Murphy, writing for The New American, reviewed the Project Veritas videos that had been released and concluded that the network, in its first video, exhibited “a racial bias in its coverage of [mass] shootings … stories were picked based on the newsroom’s agenda and on what type of stories drive ratings.” Additional videos “paint a picture of CNN president Jeff Zucker as a vicious, agenda-driven corporate autocrat who is using the network to grind his own personal ax.”

Murphy, in a second article for TNA, wrote that

A Red Flag Law is Giving a Mouse a Cookie

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, October 11, 2019: 

A boy gives a mouse a cookie. The mouse asks for a glass of milk. He then requests a straw (to drink the milk), a mirror (to avoid a milk mustache), nail scissors (to trim his hair in the mirror), and a broom (to sweep up his hair trimmings).

Next he wants to take a nap, have a story read to him, draw a picture, and hang the drawing on the refrigerator. Looking at the refrigerator makes him thirsty, so the mouse asks for a glass of milk.

 

The circle is complete when he wants a cookie to go with it.

With a hat tip to Author Laura Numeroff, the developer of this plot, this is exactly what is happening in California, and should anyone be surprised?

Unless California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes them by Sunday, all nine gun control bills presently sitting on his desk will become law.

Two of the most pernicious and dangerous concern expansions of the state’s already unconstitutional red flag laws, and illustrate the dangers of passing any such laws in the first place. Once enacted, politicians then find it easier to expand definitions to make them more draconian in their impact on precious rights. It isn’t hard to imagine a time in the very near future when red flag laws, all by themselves, will enable the complete disarmament of every law abiding citizen in the country.

Mainstream Media Ignores FBI Report That Violent Crime Decreased Again

China’s Celebration of 70 Years of Communist Oppression an Attempt to Mask Its Failing Economy

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, September 30, 2019: 

Just as Adolf Hitler turned the Berlin 1936 Olympic Games into a propaganda spectacle, highlighting his “new Germany,” it appears that China’s extravagant display of military hardware starting tomorrow is meant to have a similar impact. And just in time, too, as more numbers showing China’s faltering economy are being released.

Those Olympic Games “provided Hitler with a showcase,” wrote University of Pittsburgh history professor Barbara Burstin on the 80th anniversary of those games. “It was a propaganda bonanza for him.” She added:

[They] … dulled the opposition to [Hitler] that clearly had been quite evident up to 1936. A lot of people felt he was clearly heading in the wrong direction, and by going to the Olympics [the West] gave [him] the opportunity to appear sane, rational and tolerant.

Starting Tuesday, October 1, the celebration of 70 years of communist oppression of the Chinese people will begin in earnest. The sheer enormity of the celebration is likely to mask any concerns about the country’s faltering economy. According to the BBC,

Democrat Bill to Prop Up Social Security Likely to Pass the House

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 11, 2019: 

Social Security is in trouble. It has been in trouble for 84 years. Representative John Larson’s (D-Conn.) plan to prop it up is a mixture of the same old brew offered by past Congresses to keep the Ponzi-like scheme afloat for a few more years.

Called the Social Security 2100 Act, Larson claims to have 210 Democrat cosponsors for it in the House, which means it’s almost certain to pass the House later on this fall. It’s also all but certain that the Republican-controlled Senate will ignore the issue in light of it being the third rail of politics and as the 2020 elections draw ever closer.

On the surface the mixture appears enticing:
