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...

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.

Chicago Shootings Exceed 1,000 in April, a “Grim Milestone”

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, April 25, 2016: 

The Chicago Tribune announced last week that the number of people shot in Chicago so far this year has exceeded 1,000, a rate not seen since the 1990s.

The Tribune started tracking gun violence in 2012 and reported that that “grim milestone” of 1,000 shootings wasn’t hit until June 9 that year. In 2013, it was hit on June 26; in 2014 it was reached on June 15; last year, it was hit on June 4. This year, that grisly number was hit between six and nine weeks earlier.

Police officials, according to the Tribune, blamed it on

“Killer Cop” Narrative a Lie, Says New York Post

Even the title was designed to inflame anti-local police passions: “986 people were shot and killed by police this year” headlined the Washington Post’s 2015 Police Shootings Investigation published the day after Christmas.

The Post’s writers, in summarizing the study, did their best to take the results and use them to “prove” that killer cops are on the loose in the country, far more than anyone knew.

First: Since mental illness played a role in a quarter of the killings, the authors were quick to draw the conclusion that the local police are

Massive Washington Post Study Backfires

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, January 11, 2016:  

Given the Washington Post’s politically liberal stance, their study published the day after Christmas seemed perfect: local police had been murdering innocents in greater numbers than ever, and here was the proof.

They assigned two writers to dissect and summarize the study, 2015 Police Shootings Investigation, subtitled “986 people were shot and killed by police this year.” Breathlessly, Kimberly Kindy and Kennedy Elliott reported six important “takeaways” from the 12-month investigation:

Chicago Averaging Eight Shooting Victims Every Day; Obama Blames Indiana

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, December 23, 2015: 

Chicago police car

On Tuesday the Chicago Tribune reported that the number of shooting victims in the Windy City so far this year is 2,887. A month earlier the paper tallied 2,703 shootings, resulting in 440 deaths. Doing the math: Chicago could very well record 2,960 shootings resulting in nearly 500 deaths before the end of the year.

And this in a city notorious for an “assault weapons” ban, a “violence tax” on every firearm and round sold, and strict limitations on the number of stores allowed to sell guns.

The obvious inference here, of course, is that gun laws

Colorado Sexting Scandal Is One of Many; and a Reason to Exit Public Schools

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, November 12, 2015:  

The district attorney investigating the sexting scandal at a Colorado high school and middle school in Canon City said it isn’t likely that he will press charges as there appeared to be few victims, just willing participants. Besides, under Colorado law, charges filed could lead to forcing those charged with having to file as sex offenders with permanent damage to their futures.

So many students were involved in the sexting ring that

Medical Examiner: Oregon Shooter Committed Suicide

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, October 5, 2015: 

On Saturday the Oregon state medical examiner’s office ruled that Chris Harper-Mercer, the shooter who killed nine people and injured more than a dozen others at Roseburg’s Umpqua Community College last Thursday, died by his own hand and not as the result of a shootout with police, as some initially surmised. Despite being heavily armed, the 26-year-old apparently turned one of his weapons on himself rather than engage the police in a firefight.

This announcement has once again raised the question: Why?

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.

Webley Pocket revolver in .38 S&W

On Tuesday a reporter from Newsweek called Rabbi Manachem Margolin to clarify what he meant about Jews owning weapons to defend themselves against terrorist attacks like those perpetrated by armed terrorists in Paris last week. He said:

Just a gun. I’m not referring to tanks. It’s not about heavy weapons. It’s just that everyone should have something in their pocket.

For years Rabbi Margolin – the General Director of the European Jewish Association and the Rabbinical Centre of Europe – the largest federation of Jewish organizations in Europe – has been trying to get European governments to soften their anti-gun stance and allow Jews to carry guns to defend themselves. He told the Washington Free Beacon:

The Second Amendment continues to Thrive, says Pew Research

This article first appeared at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, December 15, 2014:

Life has lately been hard for the anti-gunners and those opposed to the Second Amendment. According to Pew Research, it isn’t likely to get easier any time soon. For 20 years, Pew has been asking Americans a simple question:

What do you think is more important – to protect the right of Americans to own guns, OR to control gun ownership?

In 1993, the Second Amendment guaranteeing American citizens the right to keep and bear arms had few friends. According to Pew, just 34 percent of those polled thought it was more important than passing more gun control laws, while 57 percent favored more gun control legislation.

Its popularity hit bottom in March, 2000, about a year after the Columbine High School massacre in a Denver suburb, with just 29 percent supporting it compared to 66 percent wanting more controls.

Since then, however, Pew has been measuring a resurgence of support for the beleaguered guarantee,

Following the horrific attack by two Palestinians on unarmed worshipers at a Jerusalem synagogue on Tuesday, Israel’s public security minister, Yitzhak Aharonovitch, vowed to ease restrictions on carrying firearms for self-defense. The attack by the Palestinian cousins who wielded knives and a gun resulted in four deaths and eight seriously wounded. Police who arrived at the scene killed the attackers but only after the innocents had been slashed, shot, and murdered.

Aharonovitch announced other measures as well, including

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

On Sunday afternoon, Border Patrolman Javier Vega was enjoying some time off by fishing for gar in Santa Monica, Texas, along with his wife, three children, and his father, Javier, Sr. Two Mexican nationals approached Javier after he tied up his boat and demanded money. The conversation became heated and one of the nationals pulled a gun. Javier was shot once in the chest, fatally wounding him. His father, who was armed, returned fire, disabling the criminals’ vehicle. They were later arrested and charged with seven counts including capital murder, attempted capital murder, aggravated robbery, and tampering with evidence.

A Hero Emerges from the Horror of the Las Vegas Shootings

In the media’s haste to cover a story that appeared initially to mesh with its anti-gun agenda, at least two covering the ghastly murderous attacks in Las Vegas on Sunday skipped over the real hero: Joseph Robert Wilcox.

USA Today’s initial reporting of the incident only made passing reference to the man who likely cut short what was planned to be a massive attack on innocents, referring to Wilcox as just “another man” who was shot in the Walmart melee. But the paper gave Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the senior Senator from Nevada, plenty of ink:

Hank McGee should be thankful that he didn’t wind up dead or dreadfully disabled in the no-knock raid on his trailer house in Texas early Thursday morning, December 19. Instead he reacted in fear that he was being robbed, grabbed his pistol and shot and killed one of the SWAT team members.

On Thursday, February 6th, a grand jury in Burleson County declined to indict him for murder, the first time in recent memory such a verdict had been handed down, according to McGee’s attorney, Dick DeGuerin. DeGuerin said McGee thought someone was
