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...

Following Thursday’s Release of Explosive Documents, Michael Flynn’s Attorney Demands Dismissal

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, September 25, 2020: 

When another trove of documents relating to the FBI’s investigation into Michael Flynn’s alleged collusion with Russia was released on Thursday, President Trump celebrated his exoneration at a campaign rally he was holding in Florida: “Today a trove to text messages was released from FBI agents involved in the Russian witch hunt. You gotta see this!”

He read the headline from an article at The Federalist, which had just been published, about the latest revelation: “‘Trump Was Right’: Explosive New FBI Texts Detail Internal Furor Over Handling Of ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ Investigation. Newly disclosed internal FBI notes and text messages detail the extent of the FBI’s desire to take down Trump and his associates at any cost.”

Trump exploded:

Feinstein Fading: Senators Question Her Ability To Fight Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, September 24, 2020:

California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, who just turned 87 in June, is causing angst among more than a dozen fellow Democrats who think she could botch the party’s resistance to whomever Trump nominates to the Supreme Court on Saturday.

A botch could cost the party seats in the next Congress, just the way it did following her scurrilous attack on Trump’s nominee Brett Kavanaugh in September 2018 just before the midterm elections.

Senate Committee Report Confirms Hunter Biden Used Dad’s Connections to Make Millions

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 23, 2020:  

The long-delayed and greatly anticipated report on Hunter Biden’s history of corruption in Ukraine was finally released on Wednesday. A majority of Americans knew he benefited from the Biden name, but few knew the real extent of the corruption and its cover-up by the Obama administration until now.

The chairs of the report, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), wrote:

On April 16, 2014, Vice President Biden met with his son’s business partner, Devon Archer, at the White House. Five days later, Vice President Biden visited Ukraine, and he soon after was described in the press as the “public face of the administration’s handling of Ukraine.”

 

The day after his visit, on April 22, Archer joined the board of Burisma….

 

On May 12, Hunter Biden joined the board of Burisma, and over the course of the next several years, Hunter Biden and Devon Archer were paid millions of dollars from a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch for their participation on the board.

When that “oligarch,” Mykola Zlochevsky, owner of Burisma, paid a bribe to release some $23 million that had been seized by the British government over charges of his corruption, Hunter Biden had been on the board for seven months.

When Acting Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv, George Kent, learned about the bribe, he “raised concerns to officials in Vice President Joe Biden’s office about the perception of a conflict of interest with respect to Hunter Biden’s role on Burisma’s board.” His concerns were ignored.

From the report:

John McCain’s Widow Endorses Biden, Says He’s “Good and Decent.”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, September 23, 2020:  

Cindy McCain, John McCain’s widow, formally endorsed Joe Biden for the presidency of the United States on Tuesday. Although admitting that she and Biden didn’t always agree on issues, at bottom she said, “he is a good and decent man.”

No, he is not. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t lie, and then lie again after the lie was exposed. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t twist history for his personal aggrandizement. A “good and decent” man wouldn’t deny his faith in order to be politically correct and acceptable.

Yet Biden has done all of these, and more.

Some current lies include Biden’s claim that he called for a government shutdown one week before Trump. There is no evidence whatsoever that he made a statement like that of any kind. On the contrary, he is on record as vocally opposing Trump’s early travel ban on China.

Biden claims that he has no recollection of his alleged sexual assault on his former staffer Tara Reade, and yet has moved Heaven and Earth to block the University of Delaware from releasing his Senate papers at the time of the alleged assault that would prove his innocence.

He recently told audiences that after leaving the White House, “I became a teacher. I became a professor.” No, he didn’t. He got paid for making some speeches at the University of Pennsylvania, but he never taught a single student.

He has a long history of lying. He boasted about his “arrest” in South Africa for supposedly attempting to visit Nelson Mandela, for which Mandela later thanked him. None of that is true: not the arrest, not the attempted visit, and not the “thank you” note he supposedly received from Mandela.

He destroyed his first run for the presidency in 1987 when he was caught in a lie about being the first person in his family to attend college.

Said Biden at the time:

Why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? Why is it that my wife who is sitting out there in the audience is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? Is it because I’m the first Biden in a thousand generations to get a college and a graduate degree that I was smarter than the rest?

That was nearly a direct quote from a British Labor leader, Neil Kinnock, who said: “Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Why is Glenys [his wife] the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university?”

He lied about his accomplishments as a student:

Court-appointed Advisor Urges Judge to Deny Motion to Dismiss the Michael Flynn Case, and to Sentence Him for Perjury

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, September 12, 2020:

John Gleeson, the retired judge whom District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan asked to make his case against Michael Flynn for him, did just that on Friday. Wrote Gleeson:

There is clear evidence that the Government’s case against Defendant Michael T. Flynn rests on pure pretext.

 

There is clear evidence that this motion [to dismiss from the Department of Justice] reflects a corrupt and politically motivated favor unworthy of our justice system….

 

In resolving the Government’s request for [dismissal of its case against Flynn], the only evidence that ultimately matters is the record I have outlined above: a record replete with patently pretextual attempts to justify what is plainly a corrupt political errand for the President.

 

Given this evidence … the Court [Sullivan] can — and should — deny the Government’s motion … and then proceed to sentence Flynn for his crime.

This threat has been hanging over the head of Trump’s former National Security Advisor since 2017. Initially the government brought charges against Flynn for

Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police Endorses Trump

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, September 12, 2020:

Following the unanimous endorsement of President Trump’s reelection by the board of directors of the Chicago chapter of the Fraternal Order of Police on September 2, chapter president John Catanzara said, “There’s definitely people who are not going to be happy about it. There are more Democrats, locally speaking, but there’s even some Democrats who would agree that the current president has been very good for employment and law enforcement these days.”

Catanzara has been vocal in his condemnation of Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, writing to President Trump in July that she “has proved to be a complete failure, who is either unwilling or unable to maintain law and order here … these politicians are failing the good men and women of this city and the police department.”

He told news outlet Patch.com on Friday that Democrats

President Trump Threatens China With “Decoupling,” Accuses Biden of Being “Pawn” of Beijing

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 8, 2020: 

During a press conference in front of the White House on Monday, Labor Day, President Trump announced his intentions to “decouple” from China. Along the way he accused his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, of helping the Chinese to destabilize and weaken the United States through his support of China’s entry into the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Said Trump:

We will make America into the manufacturing superpower of the world and will end our reliance on China once and for all.

 

Whether it’s decoupling, or putting in massive tariffs like I’ve been doing already, we will end our reliance on China because we can’t rely on China.

The president said that U.S. reliance on China continues to cost the United States billions of dollars every year:

Chicago Crime Wave: More People Killed on Christmas Than Past Three Christmases Combined

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, December 27, 2016:  

A total of 61 people were shot in Chicago over the Christmas holiday weekend, with 11 of them dying from their wounds. Seven were murdered on Christmas Day alone, more than the last three Christmases combined.

This brings the grisly total to more than 4,252 people shot so far this year in Chicago, 770 of them fatally. Last year by comparison there were 2,989 people shot with 492 of them succumbing to their wounds. That’s an astonishing 56 percent increase in homicides in one year — and the year is not quite over yet.

The flag of the City and County of Denver since 1926

Denver’s City Council expanded and codified its existing policies concerning illegal aliens being held in prison for crimes they have committed by a vote of 10-0 on Monday night. City employees are now banned from asking suspects about their immigration status or allowing ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) officials access to their jails to interview suspects they have flagged for retention unless that have a federal arrest warrant.

Said Councilman Paul Lopez: “We’re not going to let anyone [enlist local police] to do their dirty work … not even a sitting U.S. president, not even a rogue agency. If [that rogue agency, ICE, has] any business with us whatsoever … show us a warrant.”

The bill, entitled the Public Safety Enforcement Act, was passed in response to a request from Republican state Representative Dave Williams from Colorado Springs to the Justice Department to investigate the immigration policies being followed in Denver.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said that Williams was just trying to

The Lessons of Socialism Being Taught in Venezuela

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, June 26, 2017:  

The Coat of arms of Venezuela

The Coat of arms of Venezuela

Thanks to Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the lessons being taught by the on-going destruction of Venezuela have been codified. It’s called “10 Biggest Lies of Socialism” and seven of them apply directly to the once-prosperous oil-rich South American country. First the lie is stated and then the reality:

  1. Under socialism there will be income equality, as everyone will contribute what they can and receive what they need. But, says AFP, the system instead guarantees that everyone (except the elites in charge) will be equally poor.
  2. Under socialism private companies will be forced by the government to charge what it determines to be “reasonable” prices through price fixing. Rationing follows when goods previously available disappear from the market. All that these mandates do, says AFP, is guarantee bread lines and shortages as producers cannot produce under such strictures without going bankrupt.
  3. Under socialism, the economy, having eliminated the overhead cost of “profits” needed under a free market capitalist system, is touted as being able to make the economy grow. In Venezuela, however, the oil-rich nation is unable to feed itself, thanks to bureaucratic miscues and massive corruption among government officials doing the rationing of goods and services.
  4. Socialism is sold as guaranteeing a class-free society that turns out, according to AFP, to be a society where “everyone is equal in their misery.”
  5. Socialism guarantees free college educations and free healthcare for everyone but without asking, and answering, the key question: at whose expense? The myth that everyone can live at the expense of everyone else has been exposed in Venezuela.
  6. Socialism claims that everyone is entitled to material goods (see 5 above) but fails as instead it favors those at the top at the expense of everyone else, leaving the population destitute.
  7. Socialism promises that workers will be “liberated” from their capitalist slave masters, but discover that they are now slaves of the state, subject to the orders of the state and having their earnings taken from them and distributed to the state for distribution to others.

The sad forced transition of Venezuela into a backward, third-world country whose starving citizens are forced to barter has been tracked extensively. Starting in April,

Appeals Court Allows Lower Court’s Persecution of Michael Flynn to Continue

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, September 1, 2020:  

As expected, the liberal, Democrat-appointed majority of judges populating the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has ignored the Constitution, its separation of powers doctrine, and judicial precedent.

On Monday it ruled that District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan may continue his vendetta against former Trump National Security Advisor General Michael Flynn. Eight of the 10 judges approved of the move, while two, both appointed by Republican presidents, dissented.

Judge Sullivan now has full rein to become the prosecution, the judge, and the jury in continuing a case that both the federal government and Flynn have asked to be dismissed. It’s clear from the testimony given prior to the court’s decision that Sullivan wants to know why the government wanted to drop the case. It’s increasingly clear that the move is entirely political: He and the appeals court are hoping to find a “smoking gun” behind the government’s move to dismiss its case against Flynn.

Flynn pleaded guilty in December 2017 to lying to two federal agents over a conversation he had with a Russian diplomat earlier that year. It turned out later that that “conversation” was planned in advance to entrap Flynn. When the government learned about the entrapment, it sought to dismiss its case against Flynn.

The judge, instead of dismissing the case against Flynn, delayed, forcing Flynn’s lawyer, Sidney Powell, to ask the District Court to intervene and demand that the lower court judge dismiss forthwith. A three-judge panel ordered him to do so.

Instead, the judge, Emmet Sullivan, asked the entire appeals court to consider Powell’s demand and reverse the three-judge panel’s order.

On Monday, the full court agreed with Sullivan and now Flynn’s retrial begins, just in time for the election.

The Wall Street Journal weighed in on the extra-legal nature of the court’s decision:

Could Five Million New Gun Owners Swing the Election?

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, August 30, 2020:  

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reported last week that from January through July more than 12 million background checks for the purchase of firearms were processed, an increase of 71 percent from the same period a year earlier. “That equates,” said the group, “to nearly 5 million first-time gun owners in the first seven months of 2020.”

An analysis of those background checks by the NSSF further revealed that almost 60 percent of those purchases “were among African-American men and women, the largest increase of any demographic group. Women comprised 40 percent of first-time gun purchasers.”

The NSSF opined that it was the combination of mayors and governors emptying prisons of violent felons in response to the COVID threat, the “peaceful protests” being taken over by radicals such as Antifa and BLM, and the resulting looting, burning, and riots that were followed by calls to defund the police that “continued to spur sales.”

Further encouraging sales, said the NSSF, was the fact that “Democratic candidates Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) are calling for stringent gun control measures, including forcible confiscation, banning entire classes of firearms from lawful possession, licensing schemes and repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Firearms Act which would expose the firearm industry to frivolous and harassing lawsuits.”

The NRA welcomed the new owners, tweeting that “New Gun Owners Could Sway Future Elections,” adding hopefully that “voters who recently bought guns for self-defense will join other 2A voters and be an even more formidable voting bloc. They know anti-gun politicians are the biggest threat to their fundamental right to self-defense.”

Alan Gottlieb, chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), called it a “sea change”:

New Jersey Gym Owners Expecting to Be Arrested; Barriers to Be Installed by State

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, August 19, 2020: 

The owners of Atilis Gym in Bellmawr, New Jersey, are expecting to be arrested before this day is out. They are also expecting the state to move barriers in front of their gym to keep them and their customers out.

Back in May New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy decided to make the owners an example for anyone else daring to defy his stay-at-home edicts.

When Murphy learned of the intransigence of the two owners, Frank Trumbetti and Ian Smith, he said, “I’m not concerned [that the situation in Bellmawr] will spiral out of control. If it does, we will take action.” And then, addressing the violators directly, he added: “If you show up at that gym tomorrow [May 25] … we will … enforce this.”

Murphy should have quit while he was ahead. He didn’t know whom he was targeting. Smith said, “We’re opening up tomorrow morning, no matter what.”

When sheriffs boarded up the gym the owners kicked the boards aside, posting the event on Instagram along with this directed to Murphy:

President Trump Considering Pardoning Whistleblower Edward Snowden

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Sunday, August 16, 2020:

During President Trump’s interview with the New York Post on Thursday, the name of whistleblower Edward Snowden came up in the context of the spying by the Obama administration on the Trump campaign now coming to light. Said the president,

When you look at [former FBI Director James] Comey and [former FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe, and [former CIA Director John] Brennan — and, excuse me, the man that sat at this desk, President Obama, got caught spying on my campaign with Biden. Biden and Obama, and they got caught spying on the campaign….

 

Snowden is one of the people they talk about. They talk about numerous people, but he is certainly one of the people that they do talk about.

 

I guess the DOJ is looking to extradite him right now?… It’s certainly something I could look at. Many people are on his side, I will say that. I don’t know him, never met him. But many people are on his side.

At a press briefing Snowden’s name came up again:

Over 100 Pro-Life Democrats Urge Party Leaders to Soften Their Extremist Abortion Stand or Lose in November

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Saturday, August 15, 2020:

A letter from Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) released on Friday to members of the Democrat Party’s platform committee was clear: back off on your radical stand on “abortion at any time for any reason right up until the birth of the child” or lose the election in November.

Signed by more than 100 “current and former elected Democrats from many states, representing millions of Americans,” the letter lists three “concerns”, as summarized:

  • “Many Democratic leaders support policies on abortion that are radically out of line with public opinion”;
  • “Due to this wide disparity, the Democratic Party is alienating voters”; and
  • “An extreme position on abortion rights violates our commitment to inclusivity and diversity.”

The letter quotes the results of a number of polls supporting the point: Abortion at any time, for any reason, is opposed by 79 percent of Americans; taxpayer funding of abortion is opposed by 60 percent of Americans; taxpayer funding of abortion in other countries is opposed by 76 percent of Americans; 30 percent of pro-life voters will only vote for a candidate with their views; and 29 percent of Democrat voters identify themselves as “pro-life.”

Three governors or former governors signed the letter along with nine members of Congress, 57 state legislators, 30 local Democrat officials, and nine Democratic nominees.

A letter sent by DFLA to the platform committee in July was more explicit:
