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...

Looking southwest from N. Edwards Street in downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan. Round-topped towers are the Radisson Plaza hotel.

The media’s rush to support the president’s call for more gun controls following the shooting in Kalamazoo on Saturday was breath-taking. Sunday morning the Washington Post editorial board hurriedly issued this predictable homily:

Clinton Denies Inspectors General Claims on Secret Data in Her E-mails

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, July 27, 2015:  

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, reacting to the release of reports by the inspectors general of both the State Department (where she used to work) and Office of National Intelligence that some of her personal e-mails contained national secrets, predictably responded by deflecting the real issues. Rather than directly confronting the charges, she criticized the New York Times for bringing them to light. That article, she said, “contained a lot of inaccuracies,” probably because of the heat:

All was sweetness and light following the meeting on Wednesday afternoon when New York Times publisher Arthur O. Sulzberger, Jr. pulled the plug on his Executive Editor, Jill Abramson:

I chose to appoint a new leader for our newsroom because I believe that new leadership will improve some aspects of the management of the newsroom….

It is not about the quality of our journalism, which in my mind has never been better. Jill did an outstanding job in preserving and extending the level of excellence of our news report[ing] during her time as executive editor and, before that, as managing editor and Washington bureau chief. She’s an accomplished journalist who contributed mightily to our reputation as the world’s most important news provider.

Further, this is not about any disagreement over the direction of our digital future or any of the steps we have taken recently to create and launch new digital products and services. Jill and I agreed fundamentally about the need to embrace new platforms and new expressions of our journalism. She helped a great deal in moving the Times further into our digital future.

And Abramson responded in kind:

I’ve loved my run at the Times. I got to work with the best journalists in the world doing so much [outstanding] journalism.

If everything was so lovey-dovey, why was she canned? After all,

“Reverend” Al Sharpton’s denials have just enough ring of truth about them that the media are accepting them at face value. On Monday The Smoking Gun’s three investigative reporters published their nearly 30-page exposé “Al Sharpton’s Secret Work as FBI Informant” based on documents they obtained from the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act.

The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR) exhibited its considerable and growing clout by forcing the cancellation of at least two showings of the film “Honor Diaries”, one scheduled for last week at the University of Michigan, the other at the University of Illinois. The film, a 2013 documentary that explores violence against women in “honor-based” societies (read: Muslim countries) through the eyes of nine women with personal experience with that violence, premiered at the Chicago International Film Festival in October 2013. One month later it won the Interfaith Award for Best Documentary at the St. Louis International Film Festival. In December it was featured on DirecTV’s Something to Talk About film series on its Audience channel.

The film focuses on three major crimes of violence committed by those societies, including

The Senate Charade on Gun Control

Leave it to ABC News to misdirect the conversation about gun (people) control once again. This time it’s all about the Orwellian-titled bill, The Public Safety and Second Amendment Rights Protection Act, that the Senate is jousting over. See how they do it:
