A Viewer Writes: Daytime break-in on Rockawalkin Rd in Hebron

Joe my neighbor's house was broken into this afternoon, they come in under the house and cut a hole in the floor to gain access. No one was at home at the time which is likely a good thing for the Perps.

Some blood samples were recovered, maybe this person will be apprehended soon.

We live in some trying times, thanks Joe.

Pelosi-Backed PAC Took Funds From Owner of Site Tied to Underage Prostitution

A political action committee that is backed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) took funds from the co-owner of a website that is linked to underage prostitution.

The House Majority PAC, an Alexandria, Virginia-based Super PAC created in 2011 to "answer the barrage of GOP outside spending" and help Democrats regain seats in the House of Representatives, accepted a$10,000 contribution last year from James Larkin, the co-owner of the Backpage.com, a website linked to underage trafficking and prostitution.

Larkin, along with Michael G. Lacey, were co-owners of the scandal-plagued Backpage when legal troubles began to mount against the site for accepting prostitution advertisements that included postings for sex with underage girls.

The duo began stepping up their political contributions after the site came under fire for its ads and have since donated more than $160,0000 to Democrats in Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, the Arizona Republic reported.

Board of Elections Examining Voter Rolls after Conservative Group Raises Questions

Members of Montgomery County’s Board of Elections said Monday they are reviewing the voter rolls after a conservative group questioned why the county’s total number of registered voters is higher than the number of adults in the county.

However, board members said they haven’t uncovered any wrongdoing and that the process of removing voters from the rolls is a lengthy one that could have resulted in the discrepancy.

Judicial Watch, which receives millions in funding from conservative groups such as the Sarah Scaife Foundation, sent a letter to the state Board of Elections this month threatening a National Voter Registration Act lawsuit over the county’s voter rolls. The group found the county’s voter registration total was about 103 percent of the census-recorded population of residents over the age of 18 in the county.

DHS to open office for victims of crimes by illegal immigrants


Homeland Security on Wednesday will officially open its office to assist victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants, making good on a promise President Trump made during the campaign.

Mr. Trump has identified victims of illegal immigrant crime as a forgotten population in the immigration debate and has given parents whose children were killed by illegal immigrants an unprecedented platform to make their case for stiffer enforcement.

Democrats counter with exampled of high-performing illegal immigrants, and say creating a special office could give Americans an inflated sense of the criminal threat from illegal immigrants.

The new office is dubbed Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement or VOICE.

Illegals thwart immigration laws with help from lawyers, judges, educators

A massive anti-deportation infrastructure has emerged to try to protect illegal immigrants from President Trump’s crackdown, with advocacy groups coaching potential deportees on how to massage encounters with police, and lawyers and judges working to shield them from charges that would make them priorities for deportation.

A video released Monday by a coalition of advocates instructs illegal immigrants not to open the door to federal agents, what proof to demand if they are being arrested and what to say if accosted outside their homes.

Meanwhile, attorneys are working to lower charges from some illegal immigrant criminals, hoping to blunt their crimes so they don’t show up as high-priority deportation targets.

The latest instance was in California, where an immigrant from India was accused of abusing his wife. The Santa Clara prosecutor told The Daily Beast that he reduced a felony assault charge to a felony accessory after the fact charge in order to spare the man a sentence that would have made him a deportation risk.

The side effects of statins outweigh their benefits

Statins' side effects outweigh any of their potential benefits.

The cholesterol-lowering medications do not reduce death rates in any patients, a leading expert has warned.

Professor Sherif Sultan, president, the International Society for Vascular Surgery, said: 'People are taking this drug to prevent a problem and [are] creating a disaster.'

Side effects vary between individuals, with one in 1,000 suffering visual disturbances and increased bleeding; one in 100 experiencing inflammation of the liver and pancreas; and as many as one in 10 developing headache and muscle pain.

Statins are prescribed to around one in four adults in the UK, making them the most common treatment given out by doctors.

Increasing number of Americans are willing to drive farther, pay more for ethanol-free fuel

Ethanol’s rise over the past decade has given birth to an under-the-radar market: Americans who are willing to travel miles out of their way and pay significantly more per gallon for ethanol-free fuel.

Like locally sourced food or antibiotic-free chickens and eggs, so-called E0, or “pure gas,” has generated a cultlike following willing to pay a premium. More than 12,000 service stations across the U.S. and Canada now offer E0, according to pure-gas.org and other groups that track fuel trends.

While federal mandates make finding pure gas somewhat difficult — the vast majority of stations in the U.S. sell primarily E10, gasoline blended with about 10 percent ethanol — specialists say there is a dedicated market for the product. Some customers may hold fast to the notion that ethanol damages engines over time, or they may want to protest government policies that have forced increased amounts of ethanol into the gasoline supply.

Whatever the reason, the service station owners that sell pure gas, often at a per-gallon price 40 cents higher than E10, have found increasing demand.

Democrats in Disarray Over Abortion

The Democratic Party is in disarray over the issue of abortion. In recent days, top party officials have made contradictory claims on whether they accept Americans into their ranks who are pro-life.

The split among Democrats came after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Rep. Keith Ellison (D., Minn.), deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, endorsed Heath Mello, the pro-life Democratic candidate for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska.

Pro-choice groups denounced Mello because eight years ago he voted for legislation requiring doctors to inform their patients they had the right to a fetal ultrasound before an abortion. The National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League released a statement calling Sanders' endorsement of Mello a "betrayal of women," and the liberal site Daily Kos withdrew its endorsement of Mello.

Breaking News: President Trump is likely to sign an order setting in motion a U.S. withdrawal from the Nafta trade accord, an official says

President Trump is likely to sign an executive order formally withdrawing the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement, according to a senior administration official. The move would set the stage for renegotiating the deal with Canada and Mexico and fulfill one of Mr. Trump’s major campaign promises.

It was not clear what the language of the executive order would be, or what steps would come next. But an executive order could start a required six-month notification period for withdrawal, during which time talks on renegotiation could be pursued.

Trump Is Not Shutting Down the EPA’s Data Service

EPA contractor and Hillary fan spreads fake news

A contractor for the Environmental Protection Agency who was "devastated" by Hillary Clinton's election loss was the source for a false story stating that the agency is shutting down its climate data service.

The EPA's Open Data service, where users can look up EPA facilities in their area and view pollution graphs, will continue to operate, despite several news reports to the contrary.

Bernadette Hyland, a contractor who has access to the Open Data website, was quoted in several publications, including the Independent, which falsely claimed "Donald Trump is to completely shut down one of the government's most important data services."

The Independent warned that citizens would "no longer be able to access information on their environment and climate, keeping them from researching potentially fatal changes to their area."

Killers on Delaware’s roadways

DOVER — Drunk drivers are on the road today.

Some might get arrested, many will go undetected.

Impaired motorists are everywhere and that’s dangerous for everyone, sober or not.

Consider one weekend last October: Police made 16 DUI stops in Kent County in three days.

Those arrested came from 10 different towns — Dover, Smyrna, Clayton, Felton, Camden, Frederica, Milford, Millsboro, Magnolia and Kenton.

During a 25-day stretch in late January through mid-February, seven felony drunken drivers (with at least two DUI convictions) were arrested in the area, including two men for the sixth time each.

The wide-ranging suspects resided in Camden, Felton (two), Middletown, Harrington, Clayton and Frederica.

While reported DUIs spike during targeted law enforcement operations, Delaware Office of Highway Safety Director Jana Simpler said, “I don’t have a way to quantify how many impaired drivers are not caught.”

Even one offense is serious, Ms. Simpler said and “has the potential to result in a traffic fatality.”

NYT Editorial Board Member Attacks NRA for Having Guns in Its Gun Museum

The New York Times ran an op-ed Monday attacking the National Rifle Association's National Firearms Museum and gun owners.

Editorial board member Francis X. Clines wrote in the piece that the Fairfax, Virginia gun museum, which features firearms from every era of American history, represents the worst of America. In particular, Clines was troubled by a display detailing gun use in Hollywood movies.

"There are thousands of ingenious, gleaming rifles and handguns in displays about America's gun-rich history of colonialism, immigration, expansionism and vigilante justice," Clines wrote on page A22 of Monday's Times. "But it is the gallery devoted to Hollywood and its guns and good-guy shooters that best illustrates the power of fantasy now driving the modern gun rights debate."

Clines expressed outrage at a cardboard cutout of John Wayne displayed in the exhibit, referencing it several times in his editorial. He said the cutout, which depicts a gun-toting Wayne with a grin full of "menace," promoted fantasies about killing "bad guys" for American gun owners.

Liberal Judge Who Bundled $200K for Obama Blocks Trump’s Order on Sanctuary Cities

Leftwing federal Judge William Orrick III, who bundled $200,000 for Barack Obama, blocked President Donald Trump’s executive order on sanctuary cities. The President threatened to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, a policy that is widely supported by the American public.

Orrick, of the Northern District of California, issued a nationwide injunction against the Trump Administration after the city of San Francisco and county of Santa Clara sued in a refusal to honor federal immigration detainers. The judge raised at least $200,000 for Mr. Obama and donated more than $30,000 to groups supporting him.

The ruling claims the federal government cannot coerce municipalities by threatening to withhold funding, something Mr. Obama threatened to do to states who refused to fund Planned Parenthood. Speaking of the abortionist industry leaders, Judge Orrick also issued a restraining order in 2015 against The Center for Progress after they released undercover videos purporting to show Planned Parenthood employees plotting to sell baby organs.

The End of All Federal Gun Control Laws?

The federal trial of a Kansas man for manufacturing and selling firearms and silencers without a federal license could very well turn out to be the pivotal case that not only challenges the constitutionality of the National Firearms Act of 1934, but also every federal firearms law ever passed in a battle that will determine whether it is the states or the federal government that has the constitutional right to pass gun laws.

Put bluntly, this could be huge.

When Shane Cox began selling his homemade firearms and silencers out of his military surplus store, he stamped “Made in Kansas” on them to assure buyers that a Kansas law would prevent federal prosecution of anyone owning firearms made, sold and kept in the state.

The 45-year-old Chanute resident also handed out copies to customers of the Second Amendment Protection Act passed in 2013 by the Kansas Legislature and signed by Gov. Sam Brownback, and even collected sales taxes. His biggest selling item was unregistered gun silencers that were flying out of the shop as fast as Cox could make them, prosecutors said later. One of those customers – 28-year-old Jeremy Kettler of Chanute – was so enthusiastic about the silencer that he posted a video on Facebook.

Construction Materials Questioned In College Park Fire


COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Fire investigators got their first look Tuesday at what may have led to a massive five-alarm fire in College Park that burned an apartment building under construction.

Prince George's County fire investigators were raised in a fire truck's bucket early Tuesday afternoon to examine the area of the apartment building where Monday's fire seems to have started.

No one is yet permitted in the building, in the 4700 block of Berwyn House Road. Fire officials said the risk of collapse of the upper floors is too great. Firefighters continued to put out hot spots Tuesday.

Fire officials cite the type of materials used in construction -- all permitted by code -- as a factor in how hard the fire was to fight.

"Our biggest challenge is access to the building. It's a lightweight wood truss construction, and a majority of all the fire was in the roof area of the trusses, which immediately started to collapse," Prince George's County Assistant Fire Chief Alan Doubleday said. "Once they are loaded excessively by water or exposed to fire is when they have a large potential for collapse."

Derek Jeter, Jeb Bush buying the Miami Marlins

Derek Jeter’s always been a winner.

The ownership group led by the Yankees legend and former presidential candidate Jeb Bush has won the auction to purchase the Miami Marlins, Bloomberg reported Tuesday.

The group has agreed to pay $1.3 billion for the team, according to the Miami Herald, which said Bush will have ultimate control of the franchise, while Jeter will take a more active role.

Earlier Tuesday, Forbes reported the Jeter-Bush group was the last one standing and was frantically trying to complete the financing arrangements. The Herald later portrayed the Marlins, being sold by Jeffrey Loria, who has owned the team since 2002, as “very optimistic” the deal would go through — though the transaction could take months to complete.

Snipers Protect Workers In New Orleans As They Remove Confederate Statue

Sometimes the headline says it all. On Monday, the Washington Post ran an article titled “New Orleans removes a tribute to ‘the lost cause of the Confederacy’ — with snipers standing by.” The piece opens:

“On the same day that some southern states were honoring their rebel heritage, masked workers in New Orleans dismantled a monument to that past - chunk by chunk, under darkness and the protection of police snipers.”

The monument, an obelisk that honors the Battle of Liberty Place - fought years after the Civil War by members of the Crescent City White League - is the first of four statues linked to the Confederacy scheduled to be torn down.

Cataclysm

The USSR didn’t just fail one day, as does a person who dies of a sudden heart attack or stroke. It was more like a wasting illness brought on by an unhealthy lifestyle. A physician tells a morbidly obese patient: “Your daily consumption of twelve cocktails, three packs of cigarettes, and 4,000 calories, and your refusal to engage in exercise more strenuous than walking to the refrigerator will kill you, but I can’t say when.” For both individuals and governments, certain choices are incompatible with continued existence, and the Soviet government made plenty of those.

Very few people foresaw its failure when it was imminent, even purported experts. The small group who said Soviet communism wouldn’t work because it couldn’t work were disparaged right up until it didn’t work. However, the deck is always stacked in favor of those predicting this or that government will fail. Ultimately they all do because they all come to rest on a foundation of coercion and fraud, which doesn’t work because it can’t work.

There is both a quantitative and qualitative calculus for individuals subject to a government: what the government takes versus what individuals get back. Government is a protection racket: turn over your money and it promises physical security from invasion and crime, and adjudication and restitution in the event of civil or criminal wrongs. The quantitative calculus: am I getting more back than I put in? The qualitative calculus: what activities and people does the government help or hinder?

Mila Kunis brings mom to tears after surprise renovation of modest childhood condo

She may be a Bad Mom - but she makes a great daughter.

Mila Kunis brought her parents to tears when she surprised them by renovating their beloved 24-year-old condo.

The actress teamed up with home company Houzz to overhaul the modest California home they have lived in for almost a quarter of a century.

While she is worth around $30million - and her husband Ashton Kutcher is worth another 140 - the 33-year-old could easily afford a whopping mansion for dad Mark and mom Elvira.

But the couple refuse to move from the home where they raised Mila from nine years old

'You cannot get my parents out of that condo,' she said in the latest episode of Houzz’s makeover video series, My Houzz. 'They’re never going to move. They love it.'

So she decided to give the house - which 'kind of looks like Miami Vice circa 1994' - an overhaul instead.

81 - I Wish I Voted For Trump

Judge Blocks Trump Effort to Withhold Money From Sanctuary Cities

A judge in San Francisco on Tuesday temporarily blocked President Trump’s efforts to starve localities of federal funds when they limit their cooperation with immigration enforcement, a stinging rejection of his threats to make so-called sanctuary cities fall in line.

The judge, William H. Orrick of United States District Court, wrote that the president had overstepped his powers with his January executive order on immigration by tying billions of dollars in federal funding to immigration enforcement. Judge Orrick said only Congress could place such conditions on spending.

The ruling, which applies nationwide, was another judicial setback for the Trump administration, which has now seen three immigration orders stopped by federal courts in its first 100 days. And as with the rulings halting his two temporary bans on travel from several predominantly Muslim countries, the president’s own words were used against him.

Bill Nye the 'Vagina Guy' Indoctrinates Kids Into Gay Sex on Netflix

You probably remember Bill Nye from when he was the Science Guy, a quirky smartie who taught kids about energy and force and matter. Like most good things, those days are long gone. Nye has a new show on Netflix called "Bill Nye Saves the World," which is just a hyper-political show dressed up like a science lesson. It's no coincidence that Nye led the highly political March for "Science"—where people marched for the totally unscientific notion that a boy can actually be a girl if he wishes hard enough—right at the same time this new show about "science" debuted on Netflix. My faith in authentic movements needs a crash cart.

Not only is this show full of far-left ideology disguised as science, the episode "Sexuality Spectrum" is a bizarre trip down a yellow brick road to insanity. Nye's show is rated TV-14, but his reputation was always G-rated. How many parents will turn this on thinking the "Science Guy" is a great learning tool for their kids? If you did that with this show, you'd soon find your six-year-old asking you what "butt stuff" and "sex junk" mean.

State Champion Football Coach May Be Fired for Being White

Football coach Todd Peterman won a state championship for DeSoto High School in 2016, the school's first. For a Texas high school, a state championship tends to ensure a coach will keep his job for a while.

However, Peterman is facing a job hunt on the horizon.

Apparently because he's white:

DeSoto went 16-0 last season and won the Class 6A Division II state title.

Former NFL linebacker Zach Orr, a DeSoto and North Texas alumnus, indicated people were originally skeptical of Peterman's hire because of his race. He said that seems to be the reason behind the potential change.

"They act like they can't handle a white man running a predominantly black football team, which is very sad," said Orr, whose three brothers also played for DeSoto. "Me, I want what's best for the kids, our youth and our community. That's what Coach Peterman is."

Orr's father, Terry, was one of the members of the public who spoke during the open session and hoped race wasn't a factor in the current situation.

Carried away: The inside story of how the Carl Vinson's canceled port visit sparked a global crisis

In early April, officials at U.S. Pacific Command were developing plans to respond to a sharp rise in tensions with North Korea. Defense Secretary James Mattis ordered PACOM Commander Adm. Harry Harris to come up with “robust and sustainable” options for North Korea if President Trump ordered a strike on the rogue regime, according to four defense officials who spoke on background. 

Harris was traveling in Washington away from his Hawaii base of operations, something that he dislikes because, in his view, something always seems to happen when he’s not in his office. At one point that week, top PACOM officials called Harris to recommend that Vinson cancel its upcoming trip to Australia and make its way back to the waters near North Korea where the carrier had just been in March, thus serving as one of the responses to Mattis’s directive that they explore military options for the Trump administration.

The plan was to truncate a secretive exercise with the Australians near Indonesia, to cancel Vinson’s visit to Perth and then head the direction of the Korean Peninsula — meaning Vinson would be off North Korea by the end of the month. 

Rep. Harris: President Trump is Easing the Regulatory Burden on Farmers

WASHINGTON, DC: On April 25, Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in response to President Trump’s Executive Order Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America.

“I am pleased to see President Trump and Secretary Perdue working together to ease the regulatory burden placed on farmers by the Obama administration. Maryland’s First District is home to a robust rural community and many small, family-owned farms. I am confident that the concerns of these communities and farmers will be a priority for the new Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity.”

The President’s executive order directs Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to work with the rest of the Cabinet to identify and eliminate unnecessary regulations that are harmful to the American agriculture industry. This order also establishes the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity, which will examine agricultural issues related to economic development, education, overregulation, and taxation. After 180 days, the task force will report its findings and propose specific legislative, regulatory, and policy changes.

On Monday, the town council approved an area resident’s proposal to set up his skateboarding ramps and equipment in Berlin Falls Park the last Sunday of each month from May to October. The equipment would be available for the public to use free of charge from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“Our goal is to give an outlet for everybody to participate,” said Sean McLaren, the local resident who’s providing the ramps.

The council approved a “Temporary Skateboard Services and Facility Use Agreement” with McLaren to allow for the monthly events. McLaren had previously offered the use of his equipment to the town at a meeting of the Berlin Parks Commission. He and Tres Denk of the Eastern Shore International Mountain Biking Association hosted the “Get Ramped” skateboarding and biking event at Berlin Falls Park last year. They’re eager to provide area children with more biking and skateboarding opportunities.

Japan Warns Citizens: Only 10 Minutes to Prepare For a Missile From NKorea

The Japanese government has warned its citizens that they may have less than 10 minutes to prepare for a missile fired from North Korea.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's office issued new "actions to protect yourself" guidelines this week, The Washington Post reportedTuesday, including instructions for the first time on how to respond to a ballistic missile from Pyongyang.

Three of the four missiles North Korea launched on March 6 landed within Tokyo's exclusive economic zone in the Sea of Japan, the Post reports.

The body of water separates Japan and the Korean Peninsula.

Pyongyang said later that it was practicing to hit U.S. military bases in Japan.

"When a missile is launched from North Korea, it will not take long to reach Japan," one response in to a "frequently asked question" reads, according to the Post. "For example, the ballistic missile launched from [North Korea] on February 7 last year took 10 minutes to fly over Okinawa."

Stone carvings confirm comet hit Earth 13,000 years ago

Ancient symbols carved into stone at an archaeological site in Turkey tell the story of a devastating comet impact that triggered a mini ice age more than 13,000 years ago, scientists believe.

Evidence from the carvings, made on a pillar known as the Vulture Stone, suggests that a swarm of comet fragments hit the Earth in around 11000 BC.

One image of a headless man is thought to symbolise human disaster and extensive loss of life.

The devastating event, which wiped out creatures such as woolly mammoths, also helped spark the rise of civilisation.

BREAKING NEWS: Rapes In Salisbury Maryland Up 50% This Year



There have been SIX rapes in Salisbury so far in the first four months of 2017, an average of 18 for the year. There were a total of 12 rapes last year in Salisbury. There were only four rapes in the first four months of 2016.

Boy Mayor Jake Day and his rubber stamping local media can tell you crime is down but if it wasn't for Salisbury News, none of you would be up to speed with either reality or the documented truth.

Ladies, the above images are in the very least extremely scary. However, this is what has been DOCUMENTED and or exposed. There's no telling what the TRUTH is as your representatives continue to try to convince the public things are not as bad as Salisbury News publishes. 

It's time for YOU to decide who's telling you the TRUTH. It's time for each and every one of you to be on alert. It's time for you to contact other news sources and demand answers as to WHY they refuse to tell the TRUTH.
