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...

Julian Bond’s Passing Illustrates the Illegitimacy of the Mainstream Media

This article was published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, August 19, 2015:  

Except for the Internet, Julian Bond’s passing would be celebrated by the mainstream media as a life well-lived, full of accomplishment and good deeds in an evil and declining world. Words like “hero,” “friend,” and “champion” would forever be tied to his name and his life. Eulogies from Al Sharpton would remain unchallenged:

Julian Bond Dead at 75; Radical Background Ignored by Media

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, August 17, 2015:

While ignoring deep and decades-long communist sympathies, the mainstream media used the death of Julian Bond on Saturday to glorify a radical revolutionary, calling him a “hero,” “gifted,” “smart,” a “friend” of President Obama, “passionate,” “eloquent,” and a civil rights “champion.”

Al Sharpton was solicited for his comments on Bond:

As one who came out of the immediate generation after him, I grew up admiring and studying the work of Julian Bond.… The country has lost a champion for human rights.

As was Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, who added:

Michael Hastings, author of The Runaway General that ended McChrystal’s career, dead at 33

Most obituaries about Hasting’s untimely death in a high-speed fiery single-car crash at 4:30AM on Tuesday morning in Los Angeles dwelled on his primary and most visible contribution to investigative journalism, his authorship of The Runaway General in Rolling Stone magazine which led almost immediately to the

Doug Casey, who heads up Casey Research (which sells investment advice through various subscription services) and who was a classmate of Bill Clinton’s while they were attending Georgetown University in the late 1960s, didn’t drink the establishment Kool-Aid while he was there. Instead he joined the ranks of libertarians before that became a household word. He has a worldview that is often instructive. That’s the case here.

His interview on America’s foreign policy concentrates on the madness going on in Afghanistan, reviewing questions raised by the establishment’s Foreign Policy magazine back in August and then responding to them. It’s far more than we can do here, except to touch on a couple of points that especially hit me:

For one, he thinks Obama will be less – much less – dangerous in foreign affairs than Romney would have been:

Rhode Island Representative Daniel Gordon has drafted a resolution to express his opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) “that suspended habeas corpus and civil liberties” under Section 1021.

That section of the act, signed into law by President Obama on New Year’s Eve:

provides for the indefinite detention of American citizens by the military on American soil, without charge, and without right to legal counsel and [the] right to trial.

Given the fact that the constitutions of Rhode Island and that of the United States are replete with guarantees of individual liberties, right to habeas corpus, and right to freedom of speech, the offending sections of that law are repugnant to the sensibilities of anyone [who] has a basic understanding of the foundation of this country….

When I took the oath of office, I swore that I would support the constitutions of Rhode Island and the United States. And before one constituent of mine is snatched up in the dead of night, without due process under our laws, they’ll have to pry those documents from my cold dead hands.

Gordon has a lot of company in his opposition to the NDAA. Pastor Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party’s candidate for President in 2008, wrote: “Americans should realize that, coupled with the Patriot Act, the NDAA, for all intents and purposes, completely nullifies a good portion of the Bill of Rights, turns the United States into a war zone, and places US citizens under
