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...

-Ephesians 5:11-13

Acclaimed Yale Economist Shiller Declares U.S. Housing Market in a Bubble, Warns of Eventual Collapse

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, May 28, 2021:  

Robert Shiller, the Yale economist and inventor of the Case-Shiller Index, told Yahoo Finance Alive on Wednesday that the U.S. housing market has “aspects of a bubble to it.”

Shiller added:

This is not a market that collapses overnight … but you can see that we’re seeing price increases now that haven’t [been seen] since those years just before the [2008] financial crisis.

The Case-Shiller Index — now called the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller National Home Price Index — released on Tuesday showed that prices for the average home in the United States rose more than 13 percent since last April. Three major cities — Phoenix, San Diego, and Seattle — led the way, with annual gains of 20 percent, 19.1 percent, and 18.3 percent, respectively. Home prices in all 20 cities included in the index increased as well.

The reasons behind a housing-market bubble include:

17 State Attorneys General File Brief Supporting SD Governor’s Suit Over Biden’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Ban

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, May 24, 2021:  

Fourth of July celebrations at Mount Rushmore — the iconic carving of Rushmore Mountain in South Dakota celebrating four of America’s most revered past presidents — have been canceled. Predictably, COVID is being used as an excuse. Seventeen states are now suing to reopen the celebrations.

Under an agreement crafted in 2019, the state was allowed to celebrate Independence Day (independence, by the way, from overreaching government) with fireworks at the popular tourist site. But, using COVID as cover, Herbert Frost, a regional director for the National Park Service (NPS), pulled the plug in March for any plans the South Dakota Governor had for celebrating the event this year:

Respected Democrat Pollster: Trump Loyalists to Lead the Country Starting in 2022

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 19, 2021:  

Stanley Greenberg, Democrat Party pollster and policy wonk for the party, was surprised at the results of a poll he took of 1,000 registered voters two weeks ago in key battleground states:

We were … surprised by how much Donald Trump’s loyalist party is totally consolidated at this early point in its 2022 voting, and how engaged it is….


With such high early engagement of Republicans and white working-class voters in this survey, it means the era of Donald Trump shaping the electorate is not over.

Greenberg hoped that the Trump era was over. In his book, R.I.P. G.O.P.: How the New America is Dooming the Republicans, published in 2019, he predicted that the thrashing Republicans took in 2018 would be repeated in 2020. No doubt he was surprised that he was wrong then, too.

The problem Democrats have, Greenberg opined after reviewing the results of his poll, is that Republicans “are deeply engaged [while] Democrats are barely following politics.”

Greenberg is smart enough to know why:

Economic Growth Continues, But It Won’t Last Forever

This article was first published at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, May 3, 2021: 

The melt-up in stock prices — increasingly being driven by the stampede of new investors operating out of fear of missing out (FOMO) — is breathtaking. The most commonly used indicator, the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, has jumped more than 80 percent since its low last March.

Stockholdings among U.S. households have increased to 41 percent of their total financial assets in April, the highest level in history going back to 1952.

The rebound from the pandemic lows is historic:

Biden’s Low Approval Ratings Bode Well for Republicans in 2022

This article first appeared at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, April 29, 2021: 

Despite efforts by major pollsters to make their president look good, the raw numbers from RealClearPolitics are dismal for Old Joe: He is tracking a good 15 points below the average of the last 14 presidents at the end of their first 100 days in office.

During an interview with Just the News AM on Wednesday, pollster John McLaughlin (who tracked Trump’s ratings during the president’s first term) said, “the fact he is only in the low 50s right now is a really bad sign for Joe Biden.” According to ABC News, the average approval rating for the past 14 presidents polled at the end of their first 100 days is 66 percent.

The major problem Biden has is that he has lied, and lied, and lied to the American people, and they’re already sick of it. McLaughlin explained:

Idea of Trump Becoming House Speaker or President in 2023 Gaining Traction

This article was first published by TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, April 8, 2021:  

It took Joseph Farah, editor-in-chief of WorldNetDaily (WND), just four days after Joe Biden’s inauguration to suggest that, under certain circumstances, Donald Trump could regain the presidency as early as 2023, prior to his reelection for a full second term in 2024.

The winds of politics would have to blow in a most surprising way. But then again, Trump is perhaps the most surprising president of modern times.

According to Farah, here is how it could play out:

Federal Judge Challenges Supreme Court’s “Infallibility”

This article was first published by TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, March 22, 2021:

Federal Appeals Court Judge Laurence Silberman, in a dissent in an obscure case on Friday, challenged the “infallibility” of the Supreme Court. Because of a ruling the high court made in 1964, politicians or those running for any political office in the land cannot win a defamation lawsuit. This has consequently allowed media giants to become promoters of a party line without worrying over negative repercussions. They have instead become a transmission belt of leftist propaganda.

According to Silberman, that ruling — New York Times v. Sullivan — has unleashed the media’s bias against Republicans and the Republican Party, and has turned them into propaganda mouthpieces for the Left:

Trump 2024 Depends on 2022

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, March 19, 2021: 

With every utterance in every forum, Donald Trump is accomplishing two things: keeping a very high profile that the kept media cannot ignore, and tantalizing his supporters that he is increasingly likely to run for reelection in 2024.

In his final speech as president on January 20, President Trump told a crowd of his supporters at Joint Base Andrews: “We love you. We will be back in some form.”

That form is taking shape.

Peter Navarro, a former advisor to President Trump, predicted a week later in an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro: “When Donald Trump gets elected in a landslide in 2024 he’s going to roll out the same kind of executive orders [as Biden] to roll things back.”

In his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Trump further tantalized his supporters, declaring that his political journey is “far from over.”

The media furor over the commentary by Meghan Markle, the controversial wife of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, gave Trump still another chance to weigh in on his political future. Fox News host Maria Bartiromo asked him what he thought of running against Markle, who has been eyeing a potential presidential run. She asked:

Texas AG: States Must Provide “Counterweight” to Biden’s Unconstitutional Edicts

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, March 15, 2021:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, one of the most active of the states’ attorneys general in resisting the unconstitutional overreach of the Biden administration, wrote on Saturday that he needed help. Although he has filed numerous lawsuits, with more promised, he can’t do it alone:

It is … up to the states to save this country from President Biden’s liberal and illegal wish list.… The Office of the Attorney General of Texas stands ready to lead in that mission.

Paxton is relying, in part, on one of the Republic’s Founders to build his case. James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution,” wrote in The Federalist, No. 45:

The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people….

And when the federal (or “national” or “central”) government threatens the rights of the sovereign citizens of a state, wrote Paxton, “I am proud to lead the way for Texas in providing the necessary counterweight to the far-left Democrats forcing dangerously radical policies upon us.”

Paxton already has had some significant success. He filed a lawsuit in the Federal District Court of Texas demanding that the Biden administration immediately halt its freeze on the deportation of illegal aliens. He wrote:

New Arkansas Abortion Law Intended to Challenge Roe v. Wade

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, March 11, 2021:

The nearly total ban on abortion signed into law by Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson on Tuesday deliberately flouts precedent: It would ban abortions in every case “except to save the life of a pregnant woman in a medical emergency.”

It was designed to do so, to give the Supreme Court a chance to reconsider its flawed decision in Roe v. Wade, decided nearly 50 years ago. Said Hutchinson:

Reporter: China Has Been Infiltrating Left-wing U.S. Media for Years

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, March 2, 2021:

The latest interview with Natalie Winters, an investigative reporter for the National Pulse, revealed more of China’s successes in infiltrating the media and left-wing think tanks on Monday. In her 20-minute interview with the Epoch Times’ Joshua Philipp, she laid out exactly how effective, and insidious, this part of China’s United Front effort is in changing the narrative on China.

One of the most effective tools of China’s United Front — a strategy dating back to the days of Mao to present a false but persuasive and believable picture of China under Chinese Communist Party rule — is CUSEF, the China-United States Exchange Foundation.

Founded and funded by billionaire CCP member Tung Chee-hwa in 2008, the effectiveness of CUSEF was brought to light in late 2017 by Bethany Allen-Ibrahimian, an investigative reporter for Foreign Policy (FP):

Ken Paxton to Biden: You “Won’t Undo the 2A in Texas on My Watch.”

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, February 16, 2021:  

Seizing the opportunity to use the third anniversary of the Parkland school shooting for his anti-gun purposes, Biden called on Congress on Sunday to enact “common sense” gun laws to prevent such a horrific event from happening again.

He said:

Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets.


We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change.


The time to act is now.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton immediately saw through the façade, tweeting:

These Are “Dangerous Times” for Wall Street, Says Veteran Investor

This article was published by  TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, February 12, 2021:  

David Rosenberg, 36-year Wall Street veteran and founder of Rosenberg Analysis, said “From my lens we … have a market … that appears egregiously overpriced, overbought and overextended.” When he spoke those words the cyclically adjusted price-to-earnings ratio (CAPE) was at 32.44.

That was in November.

Today the CAPE is closing in on 36. The metric is used by Rosenberg and other Wall Street seers to determine whether the market is overvalued or not. As Investopedia reminded its readers:

Pollster: New Election Abnormalities Uncovered

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, December 7, 2020:

Patrick Basham, the founding director of pollster Democracy Institute, added to the ever-growing list of election abnormalities and statistical improbabilities during his interview with Mark Levin on Sunday night.

Levin, on Fox News’ Life, Liberty and Levin, gave Basham extensive airtime to recount the additional election oddities that he has uncovered. On November 30, Basham initially called his discoveries “deeply puzzling.” On Sunday night he came closer to concluding that the U.S. 2020 presidential election was a carefully contrived and orchestrated fraud: “If you look at the results, you see how Donald Trump improved his national performance over 2016 by almost 20 percent. No incumbent president has ever lost a reelection bid if he’s increased his vote [total].”

He reviewed his previous discoveries, such as Trump winning 95 percent of the Republican vote and earning the highest share of all minority votes — black and Hispanic — for a Republican “since 1960.”

He pointed out in his November 30 article that with Trump’s extraordinary inroads into typically Democratic demographic strongholds “it is arithmetically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win Florida, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico.”

He confirmed how Biden’s win flies in the face of the bellwether states — Florida, Ohio, and Iowa — which “swung further in Trump’s direction than in 2016.”

He added:

Biden Did Worse Than Hillary Except in Four Big Democrat-run Cities

Richard Baris, who runs Big Data Poll, one of three that got Election Night results right, noted something peculiar in his post-election analysis: “Trump won the largest non-white vote share for a Republican presidential candidate in 60 years…. Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country, save for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia.”

Robert Barnes, an election analyst for the Washington Post, was quoted by Patrick Basham, head of Democracy Institute, as observing that in these “big cities in swing states run by Democrats … the vote even exceeded the number of registered voters.”

In an article published by the British Sunday Express on November 8, Basham expressed his astonishment at what happened late Election Eve:

Election Oddities No One Can Explain

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, November 12, 2020:

Building on the lengthening list of oddities and abnormalities exposed by The New American writer Luis Miguel on Thursday, Matt Palumbo of the Bongino Report added three more: bellwether states that typically vote for the president but didn’t his year; bellwether counties that typically vote for the president, but didn’t this year; and Republicans reducing the Democratic Party’s majority in the House when a “blue wave” was predicted instead.

Reported Miguel:

One of the most glaring issues is the vast difference in Georgia of the number of individuals who voted for President Trump, but not for the state’s U.S. Senate race, versus the number of voters who did the equivalent for Joe Biden.


For the president, it was 818, meaning that of the millions of voters who cast ballots for him, only a little over 800 did not also vote for the Senate race.


For Biden, however, the number was 95,801 — meaning nearly 96,000 people allegedly voted for the former vice president but did not bother choosing candidates in the Senate contest.

According to Palumbo, Ohio is one of two highly reliable “bellwether states”

Biden Campaign: Trump One State Away From Winning a Second term

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, November 3, 2020: 

In a remarkable display of candor, Biden campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon and Robert Bauer, who served as Obama’s White House counsel, publicly discussed the Biden campaign strategy. The interview is available on YouTube here.

Among those watching was Trump’s campaign manager Nick Trainer. He took the Biden strategy and its numbers, reconstructed them, and concluded that Pennsylvania is the one state to watch Tuesday night:

Using their math alone, and reconstructing it, they’re saying that the president is currently one state short of winning the election. Using their math!

And that’s where the Trump campaign has been pouring manpower, money, and an aggressive door-to-door canvassing strategy for the past three years. And it’s about to pay off, according to Trainer:

Filmmaker Michael Moore: “Don’t Believe the Polls!”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, November 2, 2020: 

In a brief appearance on Hill.TV on Thursday, liberal activist and filmmaker Michael Moore said, “Don’t believe these polls.” He added, “The Trump voter is always being undercounted,” and explained why:

When [pollsters] actually call a real Trump voter [he] is very suspicious of the “Deep State” calling them and asking them who they are voting for.


It’s all fake news to them … [so] it’s not an accurate count.

The Biden advantage has to be cut in half, said Moore: “I think the safe thing to do … this is not scientific … whatever they’re saying the Biden lead is, cut it in half.… Cut it in half and you’re within the … margin of error. That’s how desperately close this [race] is.”

Moore predicted a Trump victory in 2016 which “got me no free entrances to casinos, by the way … but I wake up every morning with the assumption that Trump believes he’s going to win [in 2020], and that’s good enough for me. If he thinks he’s going to win, then I think he’s going to win.”

Biden is making the same mistakes Hillary Clinton made back in 2016, said Moore:
