Bush And Obama Attempt To Smear Trump

Has populism and awareness become too large a threat to ignore?

Infowars’ Jon Bowne delivers a special report on Bush and Obama, two former presidents who have broken tradition to attack a sitting president.

They make a great team for globalism don’t they? Is it all hands on deck for the minions of the elite’s puppets George W. and Barack Obama?

A Viewer Writes: Hillary broke toe while book touring in London

Didn't hear much except that Hillary was running (?) - have you ever seen her walk fast) with a cup of coffee (Chardonnay is more like it) and while talking over her shoulder she caught her heel on the stairs and she fell and broke her toe. Really. I confess I have fallen after a few bubblies going up the stairs (dress was to long) so any comments on what really happened.

Melania Trump Slims Down First Lady’s Office Payroll

Melania Trump is running a lean East Wing operation as she is seeking to trim the fat off the payroll of her predecessor, Michelle Obama.

Fox News reports Melania has slimmed down the number of aides on her payroll compared to Michelle Obama’s East Wing operation, who employed 16 people in her office during former President Barack Obama’s first year as commander-in-chief at the cost of $1.24 million a year.

In contrast, only four people were listed on Melania Trump’s payroll as of June, with salaries totaling $486,700, according to the White House’s annual staffing report to Congress..

NAACP Names New Leader for More Active Future

The NAACP turned to an insider Saturday to help bring the nation's oldest civil rights organization back to prominence.

Derrick Johnson, 49, of Jackson, Mississippi, was hired as the NAACP's 19th president and CEO after having served as interim leader since July and previously as vice chairman of the NAACP board of directors.

Johnson, in an interview with The Associated Press, said the NAACP will be much more politically active in the coming years and will alter its nonprofit status so it can more effectively lobby for its members' positions.

Johnson's hiring was finalized Saturday at a meeting of the board of directors in Arlington, Virginia.

Kiwi sisters targeted by cyber stalker say authorities are powerless to help them: (Salisbury Man)

Two Kiwi sisters who have been targeted by a United States-based "stalker" in a decade-long campaign of online harassment are begging for authorities to intervene.

Harriet Campbell, 25, said the harassment began ten years ago when she met Eric Purnell on an online forum, and he began asking questions about her personal life that made her uncomfortable.

Purnell then allegedly started bombarding Campbell, then aged just 14, with abusive messages from fake accounts, forcing her to quit social media completely.

The US man then found her contact details and those of her sister, Alice Campbell, whom he begged to convince Harriet to resume their online contact

Their experience is becoming increasingly common: it is difficult for authorities to crack down on international cyber-crime.

The situation worsened to the point that the sisters started receiving death and rape threats from an online persona called 'The Hacker'.

This prompted them to complain to the New Zealand police and their counterparts in the United States.

American police say they have been unable to prosecute Purnell because the crime was a "misdemeanour".

Trump To Allow Release Of 3,000 Never Before Seen Documents On JFK Assassination

Following years of delays, President Trump announced on Twitter on Saturday morning that he will allow the release of more than 3,000 of classified documents from the FBI, CIA, and Justice Department on the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The unexpected announcement means that a trove of previously unseen documents will be released by the National Archives by October 26.

“Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,” Trump tweeted.
Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.

In 1992, Congress mandated that all assassination documents be released within 25 years, unless the president asserts that doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. The still-secret documents include more than 3,000 that have never been seen by the public and more than 30,000 that have been released previously, but with redactions, according to CBS. Trump's decision means that thousands of formerly classified documents related to Kennedy’s assassination will be unveiled next week in compliance with the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which states that the federal government must release them by Oct. 26, 2017.

Did John McCain Provide The Infamous 'Trump Dossier' To BuzzFeed?

After nearly a year of cogitating, no one in the media, usually a fairly leaky institution, has been able to figure out who exactly who provided the infamous "Trump Dossier" to BuzzFeed which was published on January 10, 2017 and promptly debunked within approximately 35 seconds.

As the Daily Caller points out today, less than a handful of people had access to the dossier before it made its way to BuzzFeed: John McCain, David Kramer (a former State Department official and an associate of McCain), then FBI Director James Comey and Fusion GPS (the creator of the document). Fusion GPS has since admitted under oath that they did not share the document with BuzzFeed which basically just leaves John McCain (and/or his associate) or James Comey.

Asked about the dossier recently, an irritable, and perhaps defensive, McCain lashed out at a Daily Caller reporter (seemingly a new trend for McCain of late) saying only "I don’t know why you’re digging this up now."

In addition to McCain and Steele, opposition research firm Fusion GPS had the dossier, as did David J. Kramer, a former State Department official and an associate of McCdoain’s.

One person who was provided a copy of the salacious document, written by former British spy Christopher Steele, is Arizona Sen. John McCain. But McCain, who has already acknowledged providing an early version of the dossier to former FBI Director James Comey, denied this week that he also gave a version to BuzzFeed, which published it on Jan. 10.

“I gave it to no one except for the director of the FBI. I don’t know why you’re digging this up now,” McCain said during a testy exchange with The Daily Caller on Wednesday.

McCain was asked whether he was BuzzFeed’s source after the Republican’s office declined to answer direct questions on the matter.

As a reminder, here is a recap of the timeline leading up the dossier's BuzzFeed debut.

Dobbs: Uranium One ‘May Well Turn Out To Be the Biggest Scandal in American Political History’

While speaking with Peter Schweizer, the author of “Clinton Cash” and Breitbart News senior editor-at-large on Friday, Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs argued that the Uranium One deal could end up being the biggest scandal in the history of American politics.

Dobbs said, “There is no clear statement as to why we would give up, for any reason, any price, 20% of our uranium in this country. And secondly, have you ever heard of anyone putting $145 million, at one moment, into the hands of the Clinton foundation?"

OPEN LETTER TO SHERRIFF MIKE LEWIS

The following letter was written privately by Joshua Miller to the Sheriff Mike Lewis but is being published publicly because its content contributes to our nation’s discussion of these issues.

Dear Sheriff Mike Lewis,

I feel compelled for some reason to address your facebook comments regarding the Baltimore players kneeling during the national anthem in protest of police brutality. You should know before I proceed, that I respect law enforcement, I have been a part of federal law enforcement for my entire career, my family and friends are in law enforcement, and they are always in my prayers. I write this email to you because I am not sure that you understood what you implied throughout your FB post or truly appreciate the history that has brought these players to their knees.
You start your post by calling the players “self-proclaimed underprivileged” black power activist—which is another way of calling them “uppity.” This loaded term carries with it the false assumption that just because these NFL players make more money than most of the people watching them, that they have no reason to speak out about the injustices within their community. Officer, this shows a scary level of ignorance on your part. For the African American community, we always rely on people with a platform to speak for those in our community that do not have a voice. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a middle-class preacher, and the people he marched with did not come from the poor black areas of the South. They were teachers, doctors, lawyers, not exclusively of course, but they were our leaders with a platform. They too were derisively described as uppity. These individuals, just like NFL players today, had it better than most black people, and honestly had it better than some poor whites economically. However, they spoke for the entire community because African Americans share a “linked fate” mindset. This mindset means we always connect the injustice that occurs to one of us– to all of us—because next time it could be us victimized by state-sponsored violence. This linked fate concept crosses class and geographical lines within our community which means a rich black man like Kaepernick on the west coast will be outraged about the killing of Eric Gardner, a poorer black man on the east coast. Its this linked fate mindset that sent Harriet Tubman, one of America’s greatest heroes, back to the south to rescue slaves. It’s a basic recognition that an injustice against someone’s else son today could be an injustice against my daughters tomorrow. Sir, whether you are aware of it or not, this “uppity” reference is racist and beneath the dignity of the office you hold.

You also mentioned the fact that the Baltimore homicide rate is very high and described it in graphic terms. But this reference to the Baltimore homicide rate has several false assumptions, ignores historical context and is part of a long line of racial justification for the mistreatment of African Americans. It ignores the fact that black people in this country endured 244 years of slavery, followed by 78 years of segregation and being lynched, followed by a brief period of civil rights laws that were followed by 32 years of mass incarceration and being redlined into ghettos. This makes up almost the entirety of African American history in this nation. In between that time, the government waged war on drugs in the black community which is noticeably different than how the government is now handling our nation’s drug problems today in our rural areas. This means that the government responded to the issues affecting black people, a group that has suffered historic oppression, with swat teams, while responding to issues affecting rural communities with social and healthcare workers. I say all that to remind you that black people did not pick themselves up from Africa, drop themselves off in ghettos and start killing each other. The problems that you highlighted in our community, such as homicides and violence, is tied directly to the how the state and federal government responded to the crisis of unemployment and drug addictions in our community. This means any protest against the police is not directed at the brave individual police officers that risk their lives for us every day. These protests are against an unjust system in which the police is continuously used as a pawn to carry out historically unfair practices.

But your comment about the Baltimore homicide rate has a more serious problem and that is—it is an implicit justification for police brutality against black people. Since the 1660s when slavery was racialized, there has always been attempt to justify the mistreatment of black people by explicitly and implicitly endorsing the idea of their inherent or cultural propensity for violence. When over 3,000 African Americans were lynched and shot and burned to death in post-reconstruction, it was all justified by the idea that blacks are dangerous even to their own. This ideology is the very definition of racism because we do not ask white males to carry the burden of crimes committed by other white males. So when you bring up the homicide rate as a response to the protest against police brutality, you are saying that all black people, like Philando Castille, deserve whatever happens because some black people commit crimes.

O’Reilly Settled New Sexual Harassment Claim, Then Fox Renewed His Contract

In January, the Fox News host was said to have agreed to a $32 million settlement with a former network analyst, the largest of his known payouts.

Last January, six months after Fox News ousted its chairman amid a sexual harassment scandal, the network’s top-rated host at the time, Bill O’Reilly, struck a $32 million agreement with a longtime network analyst to settle new sexual harassment allegations, according to two people briefed on the matter — an extraordinarily large amount for such cases.

Although the deal has not been previously made public, the network’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, acknowledges that it was aware of the woman’s complaints about Mr. O’Reilly. They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter.

It was at least the sixth agreement — and by far the largest — made by either Mr. O’Reilly or the company to settle harassment allegations against him. Despite that record, 21st Century Fox began contract negotiations with Mr. O’Reilly, and in February granted him a four-year extension that paid $25 million a year.

SU Contributes Over $480 Million Annually to Local Economy

SALISBURY, MD---Salisbury University’s impact on the Eastern Shore economy is approaching half a billion dollars annually and supports almost 3,300 local jobs, according to a recently released 2016 economic impact study. The University adds nearly $80 million each year to local, state and federal coffers from taxes generated by this activity.

With a community of some 10,500 students, faculty and staff, SU has had an increasingly positive impact on the area economy, growing by some $130 million in the last decade. A steady, planned increase in student population; hiring of new faculty and staff; and a dynamic reconfiguration of the physical campus with several notable construction projects have been hallmarks of the expansion.

According to BEACON, the Business, Economic And Community Outreach Network, which conducted the recent study and also one a decade ago, SU currently generates a $480.5 million annual local economic impact and supports 3,287 jobs. In 2005 the local impact was $351 million, supporting the equivalent of 3,000 jobs.

Trump's Call to Goldstar Widow Recorded, Shows Real Side

President Donald Trump called Natasha De Alencar in April, four days after her husband, Army Staff Sgt. Mark R. De Alencar, had been killed in Afghanistan, praising her husband as "an unbelievable hero," The Washington Post reported Friday.

De Alencar was surrounded by her five children when she took the call from the president, as one of her daughters filmed the conversation.

Trump told her he was sorry about the "whole situation" and twice invited her to Washington.

"If you're around Washington, you come over and see me in the Oval Office," Trump said during the four-minute conversation.

Artist Sues Hotel, Claiming His Paintings Became Infested With Bedbugs, Were Used In Porn Shoots

Hotel guests are notorious for treating their temporary living quarters with utter disregard; the phrase “trashing a hotel room” has been part of cultural parlance since at least the dawn of the rock star. Even the poshest of resorts often fall victim to their guests’ worst proclivities. In spite of all the obvious risk involved, one artist thought it would be a good idea to not only have his artwork displayed throughout a luxury hotel, but to install that artwork in the form of headboards. Now he’s suing the hotel after finding out that guests have apparently been treating his art like any other piece of hotel furniture — which, obviously, includes being in the background of porn videos. 

Bagged Salad Recall Expands To Include Vegetables Sold At Walmart, Target, Others

This morning, we shared a recall notice from grocery chain Trader Joe’s that its kohlrabi salad mix had been recalled after a supplier let the company know about potential listeria contamination. It turns out that recall was much bigger, involving other retailers including Albertsons, H-E-B, and Walmart, and vegetables that are less fun to say than “kohlrabi.”

Salisbury's Fake Liberalism

By Thornton Crowe

This week has produced a raging story about racism with Congresswoman Frederico Wilson spouting off about a call to a Gold Star family, it provokes us all to, once again, face the Left's racist taunts. Given the subject has taboo tendencies among white people, we often shy away from it but now this verbiage commands a closer look into our own backyard.

Where is the liberals' diversity within our own local government?

Everyone says Mayor Jake Day is a liberal, bent on turning Salisbury a hip diverse place, but is he? If you look at his administration, including his last three hires, all are middle to upper class whites. Is this his version of diversity?

In city and county leadership, we have four non-white council members; however, we seldom hear from them in our local media unless it's a negative story about them. Therefore, we have to ask: do they really have a voice in our local community?

Another example of this diversity-free mentality is the activities leaders seek to promote. Folk music is hardly the entertainment of choice among Hispanic or Black populations, yet we're all in a big hoopla over some proposed festival geared towards whites. Additionally, when you look at 3rd Friday event images and promotions, around 90% of the attendees are white, middle class citizens.

Are we to believe no other racial group in Salisbury has qualified citizens for any local leadership and government positions? 

Do we, as a community, lack the racial diversity acceptance in our own personal thinking when we vote almost exclusively for white males whose ideas are from a bygone era of antiquity? Our local wannabe liberals really don't walk their talk or else it would stand to reason, we'd have a lot more diversity on a whole.

Lastly, if politicians are going to make sweeping claims about being progressive or truly liberal, perhaps they should genuinely embrace inclusion and not just act like a bunch of white hipsters, talking in platitudes to swindle votes!

Sheriff Mike Lewis, Tough Guy Or Inspirational?

WBOC is slamming Sheriff Mike Lewis for his personal Facebook rant against the NFL protesters disrespecting Veterans and Law Enforcement Officers.

For me personally, here's a guy willing to put his name on the line and call these scumbags out for who and what they are in his own personal opinion. The LIBERAL news media is making every attempt to make Sheriff Lewis look bad, just like President Donald Trump.

Look, if there's ANYTHING the media should be going after in a matter like this is NOT because mike is against what these protesters are kneeling for, they should be going after Mike for being such an a-hole to his Deputies for NOT allowing them their First Amendment Rights to voice their own personal opinions on any on line topic. Do as I say, not as I do Lewis is a hypocrite, period. He needs to respect the fact that his Deputies are grown ups, not his little children. 
Nevertheless, Sheriff Mike Lewis is spot on with his Facebook message but unfortunately the Sheriff put his tail between his legs and took down his post. Someone needs to grow a pair and not take a knee himself.

A Viewer Writes: Royal Farms Near Hebron




Joe,

I use to love Royal Farms in Salisbury and remember when they opened. I recently traveled from Baltimore to Salisbury for business and made a stop there. When I entered the men’s room, I almost puked. The smell was vile, it was beyond filthy. And I am sure that the Health Dept would have a field day there. 

The very fact that the employees also use these restrooms is disgusting because they go right out and handle food. I emailed Royal Farms corporate office about this twice and have not had any response at all. 

So what do I do, I now turn to you so you can put them on blast. I have never seen this kind of filth and smell.

Suspect Arrested And Charged In Murder At Eastern Shore University

(PRINCESS ANNE, MD) – A Maryland State Police homicide investigation has led to the indictment and arrest today of a Baltimore man for the murder of an Eastern Shore university student more than four years ago.

The suspect is identified as Davonta M. Braxton, 25, of Baltimore, Md. Braxton was arrested about 10:30 a.m. today on the campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. He has been charged on an indictment from a Somerset County Grand Jury with second degree murder, manslaughter, first degree assault and second degree assault. He has been taken to the Maryland State Police Princess Anne Barrack for processing and will later be transported to the Somerset County Detention Center to await his initial appearance before a court commissioner.

Braxton is charged in connection with the murder of Edmond St. Clair, 21, who was a student at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Braxton has been a student at the university intermittently, but is not currently enrolled there, according to school records.

At about 9:00 p.m. on February 16, 2013, St. Clair was a passenger in a car traveling across the University of Maryland Eastern Shore campus. Not far from the Student Services Center, St. Clair and those he was traveling with encountered several people who were walking in the street.

The investigation revealed St. Clair got out of the car and an altercation occurred, during which he was stabbed in the upper torso. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

During a search of the area near the crime scene, State Police investigators and crime scene technicians recovered a folding knife. The knife was examined at the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division crime laboratory. Evidence was found on the knife that positively connected it to the murder of St. Clair. Also found on the knife was DNA evidence from an unknown contributor.

Through their ongoing investigation of this murder, Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators were able to identify Braxton as a possible suspect. A search warrant was obtained and DNA was obtained from Braxton. Scientists at the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division Laboratory determined the DNA evidence found on the knife was a positive match with the suspect’s DNA.

Evidence developed in this investigation was presented by the Somerset County State’s Attorney’s Office to a Grand Jury. The presentation resulted in the criminal indictment.

Investigative assistance was provided to the State Police Homicide Unit by the Somerset County Narcotics Task Force, the Somerset County State’s Attorney’s Office and the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Police Department. Troopers and criminal investigators from the State Police Princess Anne Barrack also provided assistance, as did members of the Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division. Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators also thank officials from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore for their cooperation and assistance throughout the investigation.

Are You Kidding Yourselves?

By Thornton Crowe

Can you really support our local leadership and still be a Trump supporter at the same time?

The Trump Agenda centers around the voter and his/her well-being. He promotes good paying jobs, healthcare options at affordable costs, honoring our history, law enforcement and military, and lastly, encouraging us all to have dreams and pursue them.

This is called American Centrism. And a lot of voters, including a majority here on the Shore voted for this last November. 

If you look at the leadership decisions, they run counter to everything in the above agenda as our local politicians seem to be all about self-interest, catering to special interests groups and unrealistic demands which don't serve us. This is everything Trump supporters voted against in the last election and frankly, not very Trumpian!

For some examples of the many juxtapositions, the following illustrates some of the non-Trump actions of both our local Republican and Democrat leaders:

  • Failure to fix infrastructure issues like the sewage plant which has never worked properly and clean up the river in the Downtown area.
  • Arguments and upheaval over volunteer verses paid firefighters and Station 13.
  • Continued overtaxing our already sub par infrastructure systems by expecting the area to tolerate 200K visitors for a folk music festival that could potentially cost much more than it would gain through lawsuits and mishandling/mismanagement.
  • Continued escalation of crime, yet failing to report crime statistics, which poses a danger to citizens. 
  • Continuation of downgrading local criminal behavior and failure to prosecute those crimes on any real level.
  • Businesses providing permanent jobs with benefits continue to vacate the area and in their place temporary or part-time work in the fast food or convenience store industries.
  • Constant bickering, personality clashes and pettiness between the City and County governments where nothing ever gets resolved - unless it costs the taxpayers big bucks.
  • Jumping on the latest social justice warrior trains no matter how ridiculous. For example, the upset over the historic markers.  
  • Both County and City have had massive budget issues, shortcomings and legal questions about working within their charters.
  • Last but not least, local officials have the utter audacity to demand raises for themselves even though they have produced absolutely nothing of benefit to you. (Don't forget: Trump opted to take not take a salary at all.)

Does the above put you, the voter, first? Hardly. Does it make you better off financially than you were ten years ago? Probably not.

In reality, the President can only do so much for you. Local governments have to cooperate with the America First agenda in order for you to feel its full benefits. Yet, here we are - in an local political climate where everything couldn't be further from Trump's plan for us.

Therefore, why do you continue to promote people on a local level who spout agendas that leave you in the middle going nowhere?

If you can name any of the local leaders who legitimately support Trump in their actions (not words) please post them in the comments and explain why you think they are America First candidates/leaders! 

Death Star: George Soros Transfers $18 Billion to Open Society Foundations

Left-wing billionaire George Soros has transferred $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, the primary vehicle for his global political activism and philanthropy.

The transfer, according to the Wall Street Journal, accounts for most of Soros’s foundation, which he accrued through a controversial career as an investor. The Journal notes: “Open Society has vaulted to the top ranks of philanthropic organizations, appearing to become the second largest in the U.S. by assets after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, based on 2014 figures from the National Philanthropic Trust.”

Soros, who is 87, transferred the funds as part of a plan to make sure his activism continues after he retires or passes away. $18 billion is roughly three times the amount of money spent by all parties, in all races, during the 2016 election cycle, according to Open Secrets. Though not all of the Open Society Foundations’ activities will be focused on the United States, Soros’ grant easily makes his organization the biggest player on the American political scene.

Globally, Soros is involved in efforts to make Ireland pro-abortion, to demonize the Israeli government, and to promote migration from the Muslim world into Europe across open borders.

A Comment Worthy Of A Post 10-16-17

Joe I have been giving this subject a lot of thought and I think you should weigh in on it.

Do you think the Fire Chief and the Police Chief of Municipalities such as Salisbury should be elected positions?

If the fire chief and the police chief are both elected by the voters, citizens of Salisbury, then they would be held accountable to the citizens and not lame mayors like Jake Day, Jim Ireton and Barrie Tilghman.

An elected fire chief and police chief will be required by law to have residency in the municipality where they are elected the entire time.

If the fire chief and police chief are elected by the citizens then they have to be a resident of the city at least 1 year prior to filing as a candidate.

If the fire chief and the police chief are elected by the citizens and not the fire fighters or police officers then they would be held accountable to the citizens and not the lame Mayor's and Councils.

The the fire chief and police chief are elected by the citizens in most of Louisiana I just read. Places that allow elected fire and police chiefs allow the candidates to be non certified, but they are required to get their certifications within 2 years.

If the fire chief and police chief are elected they would be held accountable to the tax payers meaning they wouldn't be wasting our hard earned tax dollars on junk like the S.S. Hoppes.

In most places a new mayor and council means new department heads anyway meaning you get a new police chief and fire chief when they are appointed vs. elected.

I can support a resident/citizen elected fire chief and police chief.

Rep. Frederica Wilson pledges not to comment any further on Gold Star widow's phone call with Trump

Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., says she will no longer comment on a Gold Star widow's phone call with President Trump after White House chief of staff John Kelly's emotional press briefing in which he criticized the lawmaker for politicizing the call.

"The congresswoman will not be making any further comment on the issue because the focus should be on helping a grieving widow and family heal, not on her or Donald Trump," Wilson's spokesperson said in a statement Thursday.

Florida Democrat Wilson no friend of veterans, vote record shows

The Florida Democrat who criticized President Donald Trump this week for being "insensitive" toward the widow of a U.S. soldier slain in Africa might be facing similar criticism herself.

It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to VoteSmart.org, a vote-tracking site whose founding board members included former presidents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford.

The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits.

‘She likes fancy words’: Md. GOP delegate’s mockery of Democratic gubernatorial candidate sparks a backlash

Maryland House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga (R-Baltimore County) is receiving some backlash for comments about Democratic gubernatorial candidate Maya Rockeymoore Cummings that some critics have characterized as petty and divisive.

Szeliga wrote on her Facebook page: “Elijah Cumming’s wife running for MD gov. - she likes fancy words - ‘minutiae’ to let us know how smart she is - ‘I have a Ph.D. in political science with an emphasis on public policy,’ she said. ‘I am confident on mastering any minutiae when it comes to government and policy.’ ”

Rockeymoore Cummings, a policy consultant who is married to U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), is the eighth Democratic candidate vying to unseat popular Gov. Larry Hogan (R). She announced her campaign on Thursday morning.

Szeliga’s post received nearly 150 responses. Almost 95 laughed at it; three dozen liked it.

While the majority of those who commented on the post cheered Szeliga on, others were offended by what they saw as an attack on an educated black woman.

Email Leak: Martin O’Malley Tells John Podesta He’s Broke, Looking For Job

Former Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley told top Clinton adviser John Podesta he was broke and looking for a job earlier this year, according to an email released on WikiLeaks Monday.

Podesta reached out to the former 2016 presidential hopeful shortly after he announced he was dropping out the primary, and attempted to secure his endorsement for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

“Want to know how you are doing and interested to get your observations and advice. We would, of course, love to get your support,” Podesta wrote.

While O’Malley did not immediately agree to throw his support behind the candidate, waiting until June to formally endorse the former secretary of state, he did offer up information on his less than optimal financial situation.

"The System Is Broken": Angry Baltimore Dad Lashes Out As 12th Grader Tests At 4th Grade Math Level

One Baltimore resident and disable Army veteran, Victor Able, Sr., is fed up with the public education that his son, a 12th grader on the verge of graduation, received from City Neighbors Charter School after he recently tested at 4th grade level in math and 5th grade level in reading. Able says his son was simply passed to the next grade year after year so that his school could continue to receive extra federal funding even though it failed to deliver results. After his complaints fell on deaf ears at city council and the mayor’s office, Able has now hired an attorney to address a system he says is "broken." Per Fox News:

According to the IEP report, the 12th grader reads at a 5th grade level; does math at a 4th grade level.

“It’s not supposed to happen,” stated Able. “I don’t want him to fall out into the streets.”

“They failed my son,” said Able. “Not just my son, a whole lot of kids. The system is broken. They need to stop and fix it.”

Able told Project Baltimore he has hired an attorney and has a meeting with the school later this month.

Confronted with the complaint, City Neighbors released the following generic statement which we can only assume roughly translates to'we allow teachers the "autonomy" to consistently fail and never hold them to account because their union says we're not allowed to'...but that's a very rough translation.

“We provide a unique environment that is designed to empower students, nurture a sense of belonging and gives teachers autonomy to establish a strong culture of learning. Our faculty and staff are dedicated professionals who work diligently to ensure that all students receive the best education and our best efforts.” - Bobbi Macdonald, City Neighbors Charter School

Girl Scouts Lash Out at Boy Scouts for Accepting Female Members

You might’ve heard that the Boy Scouts of America unanimously decided to begin accepting girls to join all of their scouting programs from Cub Scouts to Eagle Scouts. While many are praising their decision for being inclusive and progressive, you may be surprised to learn that the Girl Scouts are clearly unhappy that the Boy Scouts don’t seem to care about the gender of their future recruits.

The Girl Scouts quickly posted a lengthy statement on their official blog that provides a wide range of reasons that suggest their organization is the superior organization for girls. “Girl Scouts is the best girl leadership organization in the world, created with and for girls," the statement read. "We believe strongly in the importance of the all-girl, girl-led, and girl-friendly environment that Girl Scouts provides, which creates a free space for girls to learn and thrive."

It went on to say, "The benefit of the single-gender environment has been well-documented by educators, scholars, other girl- and youth-serving organizations, and Girl Scouts and their families. Girl Scouts offers a one-of-a-kind experience for girls with a program tailored specifically to their unique developmental needs."
