A Comment Worthy Of A Post

Alexis said...

As someone who was raped at 17 in western md I can tell you that all types of government officials cover up these things and pretend they don't happen. When I was taken to the hospital the first thing the "specially trained trauma nurse" said to me was that the states attorney wouldn't be happy to hear that the room had to be used...I was thinking it was because it meant someone had been assaulted... But, she continued with "it hasn't been used since last June and he's still talking about how that incident effected his career". I remember this so distinctly because I had grown up with this mans daughter and had many sleepovers in his own house and I didn't believe a word of it. Until I started talking to detectives who not only told me that since I was " basically 18" so there were no laws to help me with statutory rape in Maryland (which is NOT true!!!) And then later tried to persuade me away from allowing the nurse to take pictures of me (which she informed me that cases without pictures generally aren't taken seriously in court) because they "didn't think I'd want someone who I knew that well to see pictures of me like that". My mother at that point said he shouldn't be allowed anywhere near my case because of the relationship and it would be a major conflict of interest and both detectives at that point told me no, he would be literally looking at the pictures with a microscope... After a while of this it became very apparent where all this was going. They didn't want me to " complain " about what happened because a complaining woman means a court case and a court case means publicity. Unfortunately, many of these elected officials dont care if rapes happen- they just don't want them to become public knowledge because that could effect how people see them and trust them. Not surprisingly, a month later I got a call that all of my clothes, the samples they collected, nearly my entire rape kit, had been "misplaced". Because if you can't get the woman to quiet her voice that's the next best thing because prosecutors don't even like rape cases because of how hard they are to win- NO prosecutor is going to trial with an eighth of a rape kit. The detective acted like this was the best thing that could happen and told me he didn't think I could understand the " emotional turmoil" a court case could cause and that I could "finally start healing now"... He didn't understand why I started crying and couldn't talk until he awkwardly hung up the phone... By saying I could start healing now he suggested that I was safe, other people were safe from this man, and maybe I had gotten some type of justice. Instead, I had to withdraw from college, try to completely avoid an entire part of the county, and pray pray pray that this all hadn't just taught this man that he could get away with it so he'd do it again,and again, and again. But yet, maybe that's already what was happening. Maybe he'd already realized that these cases and their victims are generally not taken seriously and are pushed out of sight,out of mind. These officials are doing no one a favor by suppressing these stories...and this article really shows the proof of that. It says the police officer says it was a " professional job"...well with 15 victims and possibly more that didn't come forward I'm sure they've become quite efficient. The saddest part is that by not even giving some type of warning out to the public these officials are allowing these women to put themselves in dangerous situations and not even realize it. We need to open our eyes to the realities around us, no matter how dim and dark, and protect ourselves; because obviously no one else is going to.

Oscars Broadcast Least Watched Since 2008

Sunday night's Academy Awards broadcast was one of the least-watched Oscars in history.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show averaged 32.9 million viewers, the lowest figure since the dismal 2008 show that pulled an Oscars-low of 31.8 million viewers.

Sunday's broadcast on ABC was marred by a mix-up as to who won Best Picture. Faye Dunaway opened the envelope and revealed that "La La Land" had won, but moments later it was announced that a mistake had been made and the wrong envelope was opened. In reality, "Moonlight" actually won.

According to the Los Angeles Times, however, the show's length of nearly four hours meant that the Best Picture snafu happened after Nielsen had already measured the audience numbers, so it did not count toward the overall figure.

Arizona rancher on Sinaloa cartel: ‘They control the whole area'

Wave after wave – night after night and day after day.

It’s a familiar sight for some ranchers along the Mexico-Arizona border: heavily armed drug and human smugglers.

They cross into the state, traveling on foot for miles and carrying their load on their backs – the drugs inside could be worth millions.

The smugglers will do whatever it takes to get it to its destination.

That’s why rancher Jim Chilton wants a border wall completed along the country’s southern boundary with Mexico.

“The Sinaloa cartel has cartel scouts on our mountains and they essentially control the area,” he said.

Black SNL Writer Says She Wants To Punch White Women In The Face

A black Saturday Night Live writer is under fire after cracking a joke about white people who support Black Lives Matter.

Leslie Jones, a comedian, made fun of white people who stand with the Black Lives Matter movement during one of her stand-ups in New York City, reports The Grio.

“If I see another 45-year-old white woman from Williamsburg saying ‘black lives matter,’ I’m going to punch you in the mouth,” Jones quipped, before adding “Stop doing that.”

People quickly accused Jones of being racist, and bigoted toward white people who want to be a part of the Black Lives Matter movement. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton called Jones out for her comments.

Trump Supporters Who Boycotted the Oscars Get VIOLENTLY ASSAULTED By Liberals

About a dozen Trump supporters protested outside of the Oscars yesterday. They tried to be peaceful and just wanted to get their message across. That was until the ‘mean girls’ showed up and got in their face. Police were standing right there when it happened, or it could have been a lot worse. One of the women supporting President Trump had a placard torn out of her hands and destroyed right there. Then the blonde who did it, launched herself at the Trump supporter and the fists started flying. The police stepped in and pulled them apart.

At first, the blonde was being handcuffed and led off, but in the end it looked like they just let her go. Her brunette friend went all vile and vulgar and was getting in the faces of the protesters and she wasn’t reprimanded at all by the police. She was threatened with being arrested, but that was it. The attacker’s friend also was seen on video clashing with a male Trump supporter who told her she’s “fake and phony” and has “no respect.” Ever classy, the Trump hater flipped him off and turned around and grabbed her ass. Nice.

Transgender Activist: Wanting Single-Sex Shower Rooms For Kids is ‘Prejudiced’

We’re getting to a point in American history where is going to be extremely difficult to create satire that is more bizarre or shocking than what is actually taking place right now.

I mean come on, when you see an article that claims someone said that if you don’t put your child at risk in a “gender inclusive” bathroom with people who may not have the purest of intentions you’re a bigot, you’re going to automatically assume that it’s a joke in some way. Unfortunately, that’s not the case anymore.

Women, 96, dies from bed bugs at caretaker's home

An elderly woman died from bed bugs after an infestation of the parasites occurred at her caretaker's home, who is now facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and neglect of care.

Mary Stoner, 96, was rushed to an emergency room two days after she was moved out of caretaker Deborah Butler's home in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in February 2016.

Doctors found that Stoner had sores and an infection from bug bites and when she died days later, the autopsy determined it was from 'complications of sepsis following a bed bug infestation'.

West Manheim Township Police searched the home of Butler, 72, and they found a massive infestation of the vermin, as they crawled on walls, in sheets and on pillows, leading to a felony charge filed against Butler on Friday.

2/25 Golden Gloves Results

From L to R  Thomas Mottingerm Russell Giffith (Champions) Jordan Brown, Gavin Brown (Champion) Brendan Narranjo (Champion) Markeeses Hines,  James McMurdo,  Corey Moore.

In the 2nd week of the famed Golden Gloves Boxing Tournament, four Main St boxers went to battle with two of the four winning the Washington, D.C. Golden Gloves Championship.

Gavin Brown of Delmar won the 8yr & 9yr old, 95lb division Championship after taking on a very tough Khyrie Proctor from the D.C. area. Brown had the best outing to date as he landed numerous jabs and right hands throughout the fight. The ringside doctor intervened to stop action and clean the blood from Proctors nose and let the bout continue. In the end Brown received a unanimous win for his work.

In Main St.’s second bout of the night Russell Griffith stepped up to outpoint a very tough Owen Pannucci, of Bowerhouse Gym in Frederick MD... It was only Griffith’s second fight, he moved very well in the ring and landed solid punches to dominate and grab the title of 2017 Washington, D.C. 110lb Golden Glove Champion. The bout was awarded to Griffith on points after ringside doctor checked damage to Pannicci’s nose and number of times throughout the fight.

Jordan Brown of Delmar fought the best fight of his career, but lost by a 3-2 split decision.

Brown looked very solid throughout the fight, but came up just short of the victory.

The last boxer up for the Salisbury crew was Markeese Hines in the 152lb novice division. Hines was in with a very hard hitting Davonte Warren of Odenton Boxing.

After getting caught with a hard shot early in the bout, Hines started moving side to side and landing clean combinations then ducking out unscathed. He continued to land and move through round 1 and well into round 2. At the end of the 2nd round Warren trapped Hines in the corner and landed 2 solid punches which brought the referee in to check Hines’ ability to continue.

It was the opinion of the referee to stop the bout, though Hines wanted to continue. Coach Hal Chernoff said, “It was a good stoppage and I have no problem with it. Markeese does not have a lot of experience yet and did not understand that when a referee is checking on your condition, you have to convince them leaving no doubt that you are ready and willing to continue. Even the slightest hesitation will cause a ref to stop a bout in the name of safety. The next time Markeese fights he will know that he has to prove his readiness to the ref if he want to continue. He came out of the bout unhurt and with a lot of knowledge that will serve him well in his next fight, mainly that when you are doing something that is working, you have to keep your focus to continue doing it. But Markeese showed us some very impressive skills in this bout. We are very proud of all kids tonight; they fought their hearts out and gave 100%. Our whole coaching staff is seeing these kids turning a corner and grown mentally as well as physically.

Saturday March 4th, 152lb open class, Corey Moore is our only bout. It’s a very tough division but Corey has great speed, so we are looking for good performance from him. Still left to compete are Thomas Mottinger and James McMurdo.

The month and a half long tournament is being held at the Rosecroft Raceway in Fort Washington MD. And will move on to the Golden Glove Regional finals in April.

Men are just happier people

Men (throughout their lives) Are Just Happier People.

What do you expect from such simple creatures? Wedding plans take care of themselves. Your last name stays put. Tux rental $100 - a wedding dress $5000. The garage is all yours. Chocolate is just another snack. You never get pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. Hell, you can wear NO shirt to a water park.

Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You never have to drive to another gas station restroom because this one is “just too icky”. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them. New shoes don't pinch, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks.

A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack. Two pairs of shoes are more than enough. You never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes. Everything on your face stays its natural color. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. You only have to shave your face and neck – or maybe nothing at all.

You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one color for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives - on December 24 - in 25 minutes.

No wonder Men Are Just Happier People.

Thurmont Recreation Company Builds New Headquarters

Playground Specialists Planning to Add 25 New Jobs

ANNAPOLIS, MD –
Playground Specialists, a full-service recreation company, has expanded its presence in Thurmont and plans to adds up to 25 new jobs. The company purchased 11 acres of property on Apples Church Road last year, where it constructed a new 21,000 square-foot facility to house its Frederick County headquarters. An official grand opening ceremony was held this morning at the recently completed building.

The company decided to grow its headquarters after signing a new contract and expanding its services into Kentucky. With the additional territory, Playground Specialists expects to double its sales in the next four years. The company also works with customers in Washington D.C., West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland.

“We feel that this new headquarters will provide us room to expand into many new opportunities,” said Jeff Barber, founder and owner of Playground Specialists. “Our company has grown each year, mainly because this team of people love what they do and love where we work. This new place is not only much larger, but designed to be fun and functional for everything we need.”

“Ensuring hard-working citizens in every region of the state have access to new job opportunities is a top priority of our administration,” said Governor Larry Hogan. “Playground Specialists is a homegrown company and it is welcome news that they are continuing to grow and add jobs right here in Maryland.”

How To Tie Your Shoe Laces And Make Her Cry


Drunk driver’s mom jailed for laughing at victim’s family

A Detroit judge threw the mother of a drunk driver out of her courtroom and into the slammer for laughing during a victim’s statement about the man her daughter killed while driving drunk last June.

Amanda Kosal, 25, was waiting to be sentenced Thursday for the crime that killed Jerome Zirker, a father of five, when her mother, Donna, and her boyfriend laughed and smiled during a victim statement from Zirker’s sister, according to WDIV Local 4 in Detroit.

Judge Qiana Lillard wasn’t having any of it and ordered the boyfriend out of the room, calling him a “clown.”

“It’s time for him to go … Whoever can sit here at a tragic moment like this and laugh and smile when somebody has lost a family member, I mean the entire time that Mr. Zirker’s sister was speaking, that clown, and that’s what I am going to call him, a clown, was sitting there smiling and laughing,” the enraged judge spat at the unruly audience member.

Donna followed her beau out of the courtroom and Lillard said, “You can go too because if you don’t know how to act, you can go to jail, so leave.”

Shortly after, Donna was brought back in and exchanged words with the judge, who sentenced her to 93 days in jail for contempt of court.

DON'T YOU BELIEVE THIS BS FOR A SECOND!

While we have been attacked by just about every single angle imaginable, conveniently just before tonight's City Council Meeting Mayor Jake Day and the Salisbury Police Department put together a Press Release countering the article we published on Sunday. You know, on a Website they claim no one goes to any more. 

Nevertheless, we have a few aces up our sleeve we'll be delivering on this matter over the next few days, so I'll ask you to be patient. Right now it's a battle of he said, she said. 

What I will tell you at this time is that I spoke with one of my sources on speaker phone with a witness present and the two of us were absolutely flabbergasted. We received far more details, all of which we will present to my attorney and decide where to take this matter next. 

As to Mayor Day and Chief Duncan, put on your seat belts. Oh, do us a favor, please. Please stop THREATENING people with arrest for speaking to Joe Albero or Salisbury News or you might find yourself on the wrong side of the legal system. 

Ladies & Gentlemen, this is nowhere near over and please do visit us here tomorrow at 9:30 AM to see just what law enforcement does to WOMEN who state they have been raped. 

Oh, do me another favor as well, please. Just for the moment, before you criticize the individual who experienced this situation, try to actually BELIEVE them. You know, like, innocent before proven guilty. To all you WOMEN going on the attack, I really cannot for the life of me understand how you cannot open your hearts up to someone who has for a FACT been brutally attacked.

Just because the SPD and Mayor CLAIM there's no validity to this matter does NOT mean they are telling the TRUTH. How many times over the years have I proven the same leadership was lying through their teeth. Let's see, 5,000 dead animals at the Zoo, proven fact. Multiple illegal violations and fines at the Waste Water Treatment Plant. A human waste sludge pit with a liner that had been in it for 20 years and had a 30 day guarantee on it. No gangs in Salisbury. Salisbury being the 4th most dangerous city in America per capita. ALL of which we PROVED the mayor and Leaders had LIED, so don't be so quick to judge. 

IF we didn't believe this to be a very serious matter we would not have published it. 

Millennials will never get to live alone

There’s more evidence that renters are just as likely to be struggling as homeowners.

A typical renter in Miami would need to spend nearly 50% of his or her income to rent a one-bedroom apartment, but a typical millennial renter would need to spend 54% of his or her income in that city, according to a new analysis of rental listings by real estate site Trulia. In Los Angeles, millennials pay nearly 39% of their monthly rent versus 34% for the average renter. In New York, they pay as much as the average renter (34%) and pay slightly less than the average renter in San Francisco (33.5% versus for the average renter 37%).

The solution is simple, though maybe not ideal for everyone: In America’s biggest rental markets, a renter can save on average 13% of his or her income by getting a roommate. While splitting an apartment with a roommate will save money, the benefits of sharing a living space vary from city to city, home to home. In Miami, millennials save 19% of their income in a two-bedroom apartment and they can save 14% in Los Angeles and New York, but only 9.5% in Washington, D.C. In all cases, except Miami, they can pay less than 30% of their income on rent by having a roomie.

Maryland Retains Triple AAA Bond Rating

CPAC straw poll: 80 percent say Trump realigning the conservative movement

Conservative activists overwhelmingly support President Trump's opening acts in the White House and believe he is realigning the conservative movement, according to the Conservative Political Action Conference straw poll results released Saturday.

Overall, 86 percent of CPAC attendees approve of the job Trump has done during the first month, while over 80 percent believe he is "realigning" the conservative movement going forward. The results, which were released at the tail-end of the conference, show that Trump receives support from wide swaths of conservatives.

Gas prices stable as U.S. boosts production

Gas prices remained stable in Delaware during the past week as the spring and summer driving season approaches.

The price at the pump averaged $2.21 in the state, down a penny from a week ago.

Wilmington-based AAA Atlantic reported that during the past week, retail gas averages moved downward by only a cent or two.

Prices continue to remain flat due to less driving and an oversupplied market, due to increased U.S. production. New individual and commercial vehicles are also more fuel efficient, putting further pressure on prices.

Most Illegal Immigrants Live In America's Metropolitan Areas

Having exposed $27 Billion reasons why a number of America's city officials are up in arms over President Trump's sanctuary city defunding decision, we thought it worth investigating just where the most illegal (or undocumented or unauthorized - pick your politically correct term) immigrants reside in America.

Across America, there are over 300 governmental jurisdictions claiming "sanctuary status." Of those governments, there are 106 cities, while the rest are states, counties or other units of government.

The new U.S. administration wants to overhaul America’s migration system, cracking down on undocumented migrants. As Statista's Dyfed Loeche reports, in total there are an estimated 11.1 million unauthorized migrants in the U.S. of which some 6.75 million took refuge in the big metropolitan areas, according to data collected by the Pew Research Center. Some of these metro areas have so-called sanctuary cities at their center.

Storm chasers honor 'Twister' star with GPS tribute


Nearly 200 storm chasers paid tribute Sunday to the late actor Bill Paxton by spelling out his initials using GPS coordinates on a map depicting the heart of Tornado Alley.

The effort coordinated by Spotter Network spelled out "BP" to honor the leading man in the disaster movie "Twister," which inspired a generation of storm chasers.

Storm chasers and storm spotters have spelled out the initials of fellow chasers in the tight-knit community four or five times before, but never for a non-chaser, said John Wetter, president of the nonprofit that tracks the positions of tornado chasers and works with the National Weather Service to update weather forecasts.

"There are probably hundreds, if not thousands, of meteorologists today — myself included — who were impacted by the movie 'Twister' and the role Bill played in that," Wetter told The Associated Press in a phone interview. " 'Twister' was kind of the first time in a mass media place the meteorologist became cool, if only for a little while."

Hillary Clinton Calls For 'Resistance': "We Need To Stay Engaged... I'll Be With You Every Step Of The Way"

Last month we noted that Hillary Clinton is looking to start her own “fabulous” TV show in an effort to remain relevant following a disastrous Presidential election loss in 2016. The show, according to an insider, would be “completely controlled” and will likely focus on undermining the efforts of President Donald Trump, while whipping her supporters into a frenzy.

Now, in a three minute video address to fellow Democrats, the former Secretary of State says she is going to keep the fight going with the help of former President Barrack Obama and his wife Michelle, who incidentally, recently started their own organization aimed at marginalizing the new Trump administration.

The challenges we face as a party and a country are real. So, now more than ever, we need to stay engaged in the field and online, reaching out to new voters, young people and everyone who wants a better, stronger and fairer America.
We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and activism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next.

Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.

…Keep fighting and keep the faith… and I’ll be right there with you every step of the way.

” Climate Change ” / Everyone is on One Side of the Boat

It has become religion to believe in global warming, excuse me climate change. In fact, apparently now it’s been shortened to just climate, as in “climate denier”. Uh sorry, but haven’t we always had climate? When did someone suddenly discover we have climate? The religion around “climate” is disconcerting enough, but the strident attitude towards anyone with an opposing view is frightening. There have been calls from “reputable” people to prosecute anyone with a different viewpoint. The “climate” scheme/racket has been built around fraud. In 2007, U.N. “scientists” warned we only have eight years left to deal with “global warming” – oops. (Back in 2007, global warming was the trendy term, now it’s climate change.) Also in 2007, U.N. “scientists” warned us that only carbon taxes will save us. Sound familiar. So they’re going to take totally fraudulent science, basically fake news, and cripple the world economy, just so the disgusting globalists can line their own pockets. And harm possibly billions of good, honest people in the process. While not warning of/researching a potential climate disaster awaiting us if the global cooling issue is the real problem.

The “science” promoted by the grotesque (in many ways) hypocrites who attend Davos, is generally being used to enrich themselves and their globalist elitist comrades. They could care less about climate change. But how they have gotten most scientists, universities, MSM, SJWs, and mainstream politicians in all countries to join in is beyond me. The ones who are doing it purely for the money is easy to understand (yet disgusting), but how about the others. Like those who are seeing zero cash flow from their zealotry. And what if the Earth is not actually warming at all? What if it’s actually beginning to cool – significantly? Is a new Maunder minimum staring right at us? Some villified and ridiculed (and brave and ethical) scientists believe so. Professor Valentina Zharkova has done some troubling research which goes far beyond the normal 11 year solar cycle. She and her colleagues are quite concerned about another Maunder minimum, which itself was part of the Little Ice Age, fast approaching.

Mardi Gras Crash Suspect’s Alcohol Level 3 Times Legal Limit


NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The man who allegedly plowed into a crowd enjoying a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit, police said Sunday.

The New Orleans Police Department issued a statement identifying the man as 25-year-old Neilson Rizzuto. He’s being held at the city’s jail on charges of first-degree negligent vehicular injuring, hit-and-run driving causing serious injury and reckless operation of a vehicle.

The accident happened Saturday during one of the busiest nights of Mardi Gras when thousands of people throng the streets of Mid-City to watch the elaborate floats and clamor to catch beads and trinkets tossed from riders.

Half of college students think their loans will be forgiven

Owing to a serious misconception, almost half of college students recently polled believe they won’t be saddled with student loans soon after graduation.

According to a survey of 500 current college students conducted by LendEDU, a private firm that connects students and their families with student loans and loan refinancing, 49.8 percent believe they would be able to receive federal forgiveness on their student loans after graduation.

This belief is hardly justified, given the limited circumstances in which these loans can actually be forgiven.

The US Department of Education says that federal direct student loan borrowers can get off the hook if they enter public service jobs for a specified period of time, agree to teach in an underserved area, die or become permanently disabled, or if the school they attended shuts down while they are enrolled or within 120 days after they leave.

“The biggest exemption is the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, and very few students go into public service,“ said Nate Matherson, who co-founded LendEDU in 2014.

When Should Teens Be Tried As Adult?

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Luis Padilla remembers the terror he felt as a 16-year-old arrested on a robbery charge and locked up with adults in New York City’s notorious Rikers Island jail. At one point, he pretended to be suicidal so he could be placed in the relative safety of a locked observation cell.

“Even now if I see a Rikers bus, I start to get jumpy and scared,” said Padilla, now 23, who was released after two months and now works nights at a warehouse in Harlem.

New York and North Carolina are the last two states that still prosecute all 16- and 17-year-olds as adults in criminal court and house many in adult facilities. But changes may be coming.

The Empire’s Nightmare

Methinks the insane hysteria over Russia needs to stop. It probably will not. For reasons of domestic and imperial politics, the American public is again being manipulated into a war frenzy by Washington and New York. It is stupid, without justification, and dangerous.

The silliness over Russia is, obviously, part of the Establishment’s drive to get rid of Trump. Yes, the man is erratic, contradictory, shoots before he aims, backs off much of what he has promised, and may be unqualified as President–but that is not why Washington and New York want to get rid of him. It is about money and power, as is everything in the United States. Wall Street, the Pentagon, the Neocons, and the Empire run America. Trump has threatened their rice bowls.

This Coming From Sheriff Lewis Who LIED About DNA Evidence

"My response to the emailer was the same as Mayor Jake Day: There is absolutely no truth in this garbage. I am very familiar with any and all crimes alleging rape or sexual assault. There is no one stalking or targeting women in our area for rape or sexual assault."

The above statement is from Sheriff Mike Lewis. 

So Sheriff Lewis, are you denying ANYTHING happened? Carjacking, kidnapping, assault, rape??? You seem to only and carefully target the "rape" portion. Because I really think people are going to call you a LIAR.

This coming from a guy who claimed he had the DNA evidence on Thomas Leggs to get the "Death Penalty" and he LIED. They NEVER had the DNA evidence for the death penalty and that's why they made the plea deal once the Judge called them out on it. 

Then there was the sending out THOUSANDS of people to search for Sarah Foxwell on Christmas Day, yet they already knew where her body was and they were sending out thousands of people to search somewhere else so they didn't come close to where they had found her body. NOT that I blame Mike for doing this, it was very smart and strategic, assuring no one contaminated any evidence since so many people were searching farms and properties on their own. Let's not forget that you and Davis spent all that taxpayer money to try a case 2 hours away, (so the press wouldn't be there to hear the lack of evidence they had) when you never had a death penalty case to start with.

So do I or will I believe a damn thing Mike Lewis says, absolutel not. He is a liar and bashes ANYONE who disagrees with him. But do tell everyone how IF you are so knowledgeable about "I am very familiar with any and all crimes alleging rape or sexual assault" how come you didn't know about the RAPE the SPD published today? Never mind, he's not worth it. He's just full of himself and sh!t.

Jake Day said: When I found out it was a lonely guy sitting in his basement in Ocean City typing on his web log, I wasn't surprised.

The top picture is my home in Delmar, 7.5 acres. The bottom picture is my home in Ocean City, just under 2 acres. BOTH of which do not have basements. 
"It's the same thing we've all been subjected to for 9 years. The difference is, most people long ago stopped reading it".

Yeah Jake, no one comes to Salisbury News, HAH! And this is why you and Mike are REACTING because people ARE very alarmed, yet people stopped reading it. Did BOTH of you forget about all the alleged RAPES at a local business a few months ago, or is it you don't count juveniles in your statistics?

"Let your daughter know she's safe when she's in Salisbury."

Yeah Jake, juveniles obviously don't count in the City or County. But they are perfectly safe, not.

"She has a nearly 20% chance of victimization for that type of crime than she does in Ocean City where sexual violence is far more likely." 

Well now Ladies & Gentlemen, let's talk about rape crimes in Salisbury vs. Ocean City.

2016 Rapes

Ocean City 14
Salisbury    12, not counting juveniles.

Ocean City has more then 8,000,000 people visiting/residing there year round. 

Salisbury has what, 36,000?

Your chances of getting raped in Salisbury are far greater then Ocean City and that's a fact. The numbers don't lie, BUT POLITICIANS DO! 

On a final note. I want everyone to understand that I, along with all of you, know that Thomas Leggs did in fact murder Sarah Foxwell. I just want to make myself perfectly clear that they did NOT have ANY DNA EVIDENCE to PROVE that he murdered her, something the state demands they have in order to get the death penalty. It was a LIE while Mike and Davis were running for re-election. That is a fact! I was there for all of it. 

Neither Mike Lewis nor Jake Day have nicer homes then I do. But I do have to wonder, do THEY have basements?

Goucher Poll: Hogan Approval Rating 63%, Down From September

A new Goucher College Poll is out this morning, and it finds 63-percent of voters surveyed either approve or strongly approve of the job Republican Larry Hogan is doing as Maryland Governor.

Poll director Mileah Kromer says the 63-percent approval rating is the same as it was in poll in February of last year, but it is down from the 70-percent Hogan received in the Goucher Poll conducted in September.

Seventeen-percent of those polled disapproved of the job Hogan was doing and 20-percent did not know.

Breaking down the numbers by party, Hogan has a 52-percent approval rating among Democrats, a 91-percent approval rating among Republicans, and a 61-percent approval rating among independents.

Sixty-two percent say Maryland is heading in the right direction, 22 percent say Maryland is going down the wrong track, and 16 percent don’t know.

Fruitland Police Department Press Release 2-27-17 (Armed Robbery Arrest)


Pelosi: We Had to Take Your Doctor Away -- For Your Own Good

Then-President Obama and then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi pledged in 2009 that if you like your doctor, you could keep your doctor.

The two Democrats were bent on overhauling health care in the United States, but Americans were wary. Lots of them liked their health, and liked their long-time doctors. They were all for lower costs, but they figured that the people they elected would listen to that one demand: We want to keep our doctors.

"If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan," Obama said before the Affordable Care Act passed. (Politifact in 2013 named that statement "Lie of the Year.") Pelosi followed suit, and then made her bizarre argument that "we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....”

Marine, 21, killed in crash with speeding BMW

WASHINGTON — An active duty marine was killed Friday when his motorcycle was struck by a speeding BMW that lost control and crossed the double yellow line into oncoming traffic, Anne Arundel County police said Saturday.

Police said Martin Martinez Ballinas, 28, of Crofton, was driving a BMW 335i southbound on Patuxent Road in Gambrills when he lost control of the vehicle.

Internet-Regulating FEC Commissioner to Resign

Democratic commissioner has been no-show from public meetings since early December

A Democratic Federal Election Commission official who pushed to regulate the internet and has been absent from public meetings for months is resigning, according to an announcement.

Ann Ravel, who wanted to regulate political speech on the internet from websites such as the Drudge Report, announced Sunday that she is stepping down from her post.

“It’s been an honor to serve the FEC. I’m committed to transparency – here’s my resignation letter to Donald Trump,” Ravel tweeted on Sunday morning.
Ravel attached her resignation letter to President Donald Trump, which focused on asking Trump to prioritize campaign finance reform.

Rare winter tornado rips through Charles Co.


WASHINGTON — The National Weather Service has confirmed that a rare winter tornado struck southern Maryland on Saturday. The tornado is one of only three on record to touch down in the state during the month of February.

A ground survey conducted by the weather service revealed damage consistent with a weak EF-1 tornado along an 8.4-mile long track between La Plata and the St. Charles community east of Waldorf.

The storm that spawned the twister moved through Stafford County, Virginia, during the early afternoon, intensifying as it crossed the Potomac River. In a burst of heavy hail and turbulent winds, it impinged on Charles County, Maryland, around 3 p.m.

Sanctuary City Outrage

Sanctuary City Update: Arizona Sheriff Releases Hundreds of Criminal Illegal Aliens

A crackdown on dangerous sanctuary policies for illegal immigrants can’t come a moment too soon. As with our most recent court challenge to San Francisco, Judicial Watch has been a leader (and often the only) legal opponent to sanctuary policies that ignore federal and state laws concerning illegal immigration at the expense of the public’s safety, the rule of law, and our national security. Now, with a Trump administration that might actually join Judicial Watch in going after sanctuary policies, the radicals in “sanctuary cities” are doubling down.

Our Corruption Chronicles blog has the details of dangerous sanctuary craziness in Arizona:

An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders.

It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of the nation’s largest with a population of about 8,000. That ended when Penzone, who refers to illegal immigrants as “guests,” took office this year and, though he formally announced the change last week, it was put into practice much earlier.

Anti-Trump Democrats’ Best Allies: Senate Republicans

So far, the Senate has confirmed 14 of the 549 senior federal positions that President Trump needs to run the government and who need Senate confirmation—Cabinet secretaries and people who run the departments, bureaus, agencies and the rest of the government. The rest of the government is being run by career bureaucrats and a few Obama holdovers.

There are another 120 vacant federal judgeships and, of course, the Neil Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court. Each requires Senate approval.

White House staff is busily choosing and vetting candidates for the rest of the positions, and there undoubtedly will be many nominations sent to the Senate for confirmation in the next several weeks.

And where is the Senate now? On vacation.

We hear a lot of talk that Harry Reid gave away the store when he exercised the nuclear option, and that Republicans have the 51 votes needed to get the Trump team confirmed. That may be, but with the way Majority Leader Mitch McConnell runs the Senate, Democrats can—and probably will—make it impossible to confirm more than a handful of nominees.

The problem isn’t the votes. Republicans have those. The problem is time—floor time.

As a senior Senate staffer told me this week: “Regardless of how many votes it takes to confirm or approve anything in the Senate, if Democrats want to force the issue, they can require a minimum of 30 hours to debate any nomination or any bill. Let that sink in. 549 vacancies, at 30 hours each, equals 686 days. If you subtract weekends, and add a nice vacation every few months, you are looking at never finishing this job throughout the entirety of Donald Trump’s first term. And this assumes they are in session around the clock and do no other legislative business, which is also impossible.”

Trump and Congress Should Grant Obama’s DNA Request

On February 13, Kim Jong-Nam, estranged half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, was preparing to board a flight at Kuala Lampur airport when two mysterious women sprayed his face with a toxic liquid. Kim Jong-Nam was DOA at the hospital and his DNA would soon become a factor.

“We need a DNA sample of a family member to match the profile of the dead person,” Malaysian police chief Abdul Samah told reporters, and “before we release the body we have to identify who the body belongs to.”

As Malaysian forensic investigators explained, DNA from a child, sibling or half-sibling would be enough to provide a “kinship match” and confirm the identity. This is a matter of hard science.

DNA evidence has solved many cold cases, freed the innocent, and helped courts convict those truly guilty of crimes.

On the other hand, DNA has never been applied to an identity question much bigger than the kinship of Kim Jong-Nam and Kim Jong-Un. Before a nation elects a president, the voters should confirm the true identity of the candidate. That has never been clear with the 44th president of the United States, who in his farewell address said in his twenties he was “still trying to figure out who I was.”

In 1965 the Hawaiian-born American’s mother Ann Dunham married Indonesian student Lolo Soetoro and Barry became Lolo’s stepson. As a radical Occidental College student, Barry could have simply adopted an African name in the style of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee leader Stokely Carmichael, who changed his name to Kwame Ture. Instead, in Dreams from My Father, Barry claimed that the Kenyan student Barack H. Obama, who passed away in 1982, “bequeathed” him his name.

Sonnie Johnson: ‘Systemic Racism and White Supremacy’ Belong to the Democrats

Conservative commentator Sonnie Johnson slammed progressive politics for hurting black business owners and wrecking families in a fiery Feb. 23 CPAC speech at the National Harbor.

“What if I told you I actually agree with Black Lives Matter? What if I told you institutionalized racism is real in America?” Johnson said, describing how progressive president Woodrow Wilson believed America would be better “if the races were segregated.”

She continued:

"What if I told you institutionalized racism was real in America and came through a president named FDR? What if I told you that minimum wage [laws] was to protect white jobs from black workers, through unionization? That actually happened in this country. What if I told you that price controls put out by FDR actually bankrupted black farms? People who worked for themselves their entire lives were now forced to go to government and beg for welfare? What if I told you excessive taxation and regulation took these people that were newly-freed slaves already… and crushed those businesses?

“What if I told you that white supremacy is real in America, and it came with the very first gun law? That black people had no right to protect themselves from the KKK?” Johnson said to applause and appreciative “amens” from the audience.

Md. Lawmakers Push For Earlier Curfew For Teen Drivers

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — One Maryland lawmaker is pushing to turn back the clock on the current curfew for teen drivers. Safe driving advocates say it the right thing to do to keep young drivers safe.

Right now, teens are allowed out until midnight, but that could soon change to 10 p.m.

Advocates say too many young lives have been lost.

In June 2016, three teens died in a late night crash in Clarksburg, their pickup slamming into a tree.

'There are 15 terror tunnels under Gaza border'

Senior officials in the Israeli Security Cabinet and elsewhere said that Hamas currently has at least 15 attack tunnels which cross under the border from Gaza into Israel. The IDF had announced at the end of Operation Protective Edge that it had destroyed all attack tunnels-- these may, however, be tunnels built after the operation, as Hamas diverts cement allowed into Gaza for civilian reconstruction and uses it to build tunnels.

There have been a significant number of accidents in the tunnels, causing speculation about whether Israel has developed methods to cause tunnels to collapse, and what those suspected methods might be. Speculations run from man-made tremors to lower grade cement. The government has not answered questions on the subject.
