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...

How to Destroy the Criminal Justice System: The Freddie Gray Case

English: Baltimore Harbor as seen from World Trade Center.

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.

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.

There are two YouTube videos of the shooting of Tamir Rice. There’s the one that the media pushed all across the country which proved – proved! – that once again white police deliberately shot an unarmed black boy without provocation. Case closed.

And then there’s the other one that the Grand Jury saw.

Literature abounds with pithy and relevant comments about the underside of politics. Disraeli said: “There is no gambling like politics.” Austin O’Malley said: “A politician is like quicksilver: if you try to put your finger on him, you find nothing under it.” Will Rogers said: “There is no more independence in politics than there is in jail.” Shakespeare said: “A politician [is] one who would circumvent God.”

Preet Bharara’s resume is impressive. Born in India and raised in Eatontown, New Jersey, he graduated from Ranney School, an independent, highly-regarded college preparatory school, in 1986 as valedictorian of his class. From there he went to Harvard College, graduating magna com laude (with great honor) four years later. He received his J.D. (juris doctor) in 1993 from Columbia Law School where he served on the Columbia Law Review.

After a stint as Sen. Chuck Schumer’s chief counsel, he served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in Manhattan for five years, successfully prosecuting bosses of the Gambino and Columbo crime families.

When he was nominated for U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York by President Obama in 2009, he breezed through Senate confirmation with no dissents.

Since that time he has scored impressive victories, prosecuting successfully more than

Black Lives Matter, NAACP Exploit Minnesota Shooting

Minneapolis Police Department badge

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, November 18, 2015: 

Within hours of the shooting of Jamar Clark by Minnesota police early Sunday morning, revolutionary groups NAACP and Black Lives Matter had rounded up an estimated 300 people and sufficiently aroused them to block the northbound lanes of Interstate 94, which runs through the city. The lanes were blocked from 6:45 p.m. until after 9 p.m. when most of them had left the scene, leaving a smaller group of protestors in place. Police tried to re-route the traffic, which was backed up for miles, down an embankment, but protestors pummeled the cars with bricks and, when an officer attempted to arrest one of those remaining, he was punched in the face.

Eventually more than 50 were arrested on misdemeanor charges and released when bail was met.

The incident involving Clark began following a physical altercation he had with his girlfriend in front of an apartment complex just after midnight on Sunday. She was beaten so badly that

OECD Issues Pessimistic Forecast for France

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, June 24, 2015: 

The OECD — the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development — put the best face possible on France’s declining economy in its just-released forecast. The report was full of optimism about the future but admitted that the present reality is discouraging. Note the use of words “projected” and “should” in its opening paragraph:

Economic growth is projected to gain momentum in 2015 and 2016. Lower energy prices, improving financial conditions, slowing fiscal consolidation, strengthening external demand and a pro-competitive reform agenda should underpin an increase in consumption and export volumes.

But the reality is far different, said the OECD:

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.

Hillary’s Unethical Behavior Goes Back Decades

Cover of Living History

Touting her unique life experience, Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her campaign for president on Sunday. Above all, she says, she is a grandmother who simply wants America’s grandchildren to have an opportunity to succeed:

Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. I’m more convinced than ever that our future in the 21st century depends on our ability to ensure that a child born in the hills of Appalachia or the Mississippi Delta or the Rio Grande Valley grows up with the same shot at success that [my granddaughter] Charlotte will.

Missing from her proclamation as the savior of young people under her presidency is how she treated a sixth-grader back in 1975 who was repeatedly raped by a 41-year-old drifter. The drifter, one Thomas Alfred Taylor, requested a female court-appointed attorney, and Hillary Rodham, age 27, was assigned to defend him.

Now that it’s official, Hillary’s campaign for president in 2016 will be subjected to intense scrutiny, especially from those with long memories. For the mainstream media, short memories work best. There will, in the popular press, be some hand wringing about various issues, Benghazi and her private emails leading the list.

For those who perceive a Clinton II presidency as a danger to the republic, the list will no doubt be much longer. It will include references to Hillary’s suspected involvement in the murder of Vince Foster, and especially the cover-up following it. There will be refreshers on Whitewater and the Rose Law Firm, which engaged in various financial chicaneries concerning Hillary. It will be remembered that for two years she couldn’t find the billing records, and then all of sudden they turned up. There will be

Now that it appears that former Police Officer Darren Wilson will be acquitted of any charges of violating the civil rights of teenage thug Michael Brown in his shooting death last August, some are suggesting that Wilson will soon be able to resume a normal life.

Officer Darren Wilson to be Acquitted of Civil Rights Violations

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, January 22, 2015:

Former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson will not be charged with violating Michael Brown’s civil rights in last August’s shooting. Officials with the Department of Justice are said to be drafting a memorandum outlining the DOJ’s position with final approval expected to be granted without fanfare in the next couple of months by Attorney General Eric Holder.

The FBI’s investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Wilson revealed nothing different from what already turned up in the investigation by the grand jury, which exonerated Wilson completely last November. FBI investigators interviewed more than 200 people, analyzed cellphone audio and video surrounding the shooting along with Wilson’s gun, clothing, and other evidence from the scene. The results of three separate autopsies of Brown were also scrutinized during the FBI’s investigation.

It was unlikely from the first that charges would be brought by the DOJ against Wilson for civil rights violations

Ferguson: Grand Jury Does Not Indict Officer Wilson in Brown Case

This article was published by TheNewAmerican.com late Monday night, November 24, 2014, following the grand jury’s announcement:

The Ferguson grand jury turned down all five potential charges brought against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson (shown), with none of them being persuasive enough to garner the nine votes necessary to indict him from the 12-member grand jury.

St. Louis County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch, heavily criticized for having close ties to law enforcement and therefore allegedly biased in favor of Wilson, announced the decision Monday night in a carefully crafted 20-minute statement designed to defuse nearly all of the potential charges that might be brought against his handling of the grand jury investigation. In the question-and-answer period following his presentation, it was clear that reporters who had already prejudged the verdict had been disarmed by McCulloch’s remarks.

Even President Obama, weighing in immediately following the verdict’s announcement, was hard-pressed to do much more than claim that

Grand Jury Likely to Declare Officer Wilson Innocent; Conflagration to Follow

To no one’s surprise, Rasmussen reported on Friday that fewer than 1 in 4 Americans think Officer Darren Wilson is guilty of the murder of Michael Brown. Almost twice as many think Wilson acted in self-defense on August 9 when he shot Brown during an altercation on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri.

Dean Obeidallah is certain Wilson will get off. Writing at the Daily Beast, Obeidallah, a former lawyer and now political commentator, looked carefully at a Missouri statute that will exonerate Wilson and concluded that he will walk. He wrote:

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon’s remarkable rush to judgment on Tuesday was breathtaking. In a video-taped statement concerning the shooting in Ferguson, Nixon said that “vigorous prosecution must now be pursued” in the case. Any who thought he meant to say “investigation” was disappointed when he continued:

We have a responsibility to … do everything we can to achieve justice for [Brown’s] family … justice in the shooting death of Michael Brown must be carried out thoroughly, promptly and correctly.

Justice? What about justice for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson? Doesn’t he deserve justice, too? What about his family? More fundamentally, what about the fundamental rule of law that says Wilson is innocent until proven guilty?

That apparently doesn’t concern Nixon, the governor responsible for

With Missouri Governor Jay Nixon concluding that Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson is guilty of murder and the New York Times concluding that if the grand jury fails to indict Wilson for murder there will be hell to pay in Ferguson, the question has to be asked: What has happened to the rule of law? What has happened to the fundamental understanding that under the rule of law, Wilson is innocent until proven guilty?

Following a night of relative calm in Ferguson, Missouri (there were only six arrests Wednesday night compared to 47 arrests the night before), focus is now being directed to the start of the investigation by the grand jury into the
