A Boston school has come under some fire for marking the 12th anniversary of 9/11 with a controversial commemoration involving — or rather not involving — the Pledge of Allegiance. On Wednesday at Concord Carlisle High School students were treated to an Islamic poem over the intercom but didn’t recite the Pledge.

Following the incident, which sparked anger among some in the community, the school’s principal has issued an apology.

Some parents were upset after the poem, Mohja Kahf’s “My Grandmother Washes Her Feet in the Sink of the Bathroom at Sears,” was read but the Pledge was skipped on a day many were remembering the worst terror attack in American history.


Man, 94, Dies From Heart Attack After Carjacking In Daytona Beach

Witnesses find elderly man lying on ground
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla.A 94-year-old man died Thursday after being carjacked and suffering a heart attack, according to Daytona Beach police.

Police said witnesses spotted the man, identified as Vittario Vecchiarelli, lying on the ground in the 300 block of Woodland Avenue and saw his car, a 2003 Chevy Cavalier, leaving the scene at a high rate of speed.

Daytona police said Vecchiarelli fell victim when he stepped out of his car to grab his mail.


Casino Expansion Plans Advance; New Addition To House Table Games, More Slots, Restaurant

BERLIN — The Casino at Ocean Downs received approval from the Worcester County Planning Commission yesterday to build a nearly 53,000-square-foot addition to its current facility to make way for table games, among other amenities.

“It’s going to serve for an expansion of the slot machines. There are going to be a few additional slot machines and I believe they’re going to actually relocate some slot machines also to open up the existing area because it’s kind of tight in the existing building. And there will be the addition of a number of table games also,” said John Salm of J.W. Salm Engineering told the commission Thursday.


Americans’ Financial Difficulties Increase Sharply

Lower-income households are most affected, according to the latest Consumer Reports IndexAmericans’ assessment of their current condition weakened this month, with declining sentiment compounded by a sharp rise in financial difficulties, felt particularly by the less affluent. That’s according to the monthly Consumer Reports Index, an overall measure of Americans’ personal financial health.

The Consumer Reports Trouble Tracker measure, which gauges consumers’ difficulty paying bills and other negative financial events, rose dramatically to 46.0 from 34.7. Financial troubles surged among lower-income consumers (households earning $50,000 or less) and those completing high school or less, while the affluent and college educated saw little change.

Lower-income households continue to be disproportionately affected by the economy’s crawling recovery. Twenty-seven percent of them reported they were unable to afford medical bills or medications in the past 30 days—that’s 11 percentage points higher than the national average. Missed bill payments and lost or reduced healthcare coverage also remain among the most prevalently reported financial troubles overall.

Start-Up Maryland Seeks To Promote New Business

OCEAN CITY — The second annual Start-Up Maryland returned to Ocean City this week, beginning its next round of promoting the state’s entrepreneurs.

Businessmen and women are being invited throughout September to participate in Start-Up’s bus tour by visiting event stops to record a video pitch for their product or idea that could earn them a spot in the upcoming Invest Maryland Challenge. 

Start-Up Maryland got the full support of Worcester County and Ocean City Monday when the bus made the resort its first stop.
“In Ocean City, we thrive on our business community and the success of our local entrepreneurs,” said City Councilwoman Mary Knight. “If it weren’t for the talent, skills, creativity and innovation of our Maryland residents, we would not have the landmark business that you see in Ocean City today.”


Ocean Voyager, Pirate’s Den Get Wrecking Ball

A project is off the ground, or on it, to raze the Ocean Voyager Motel on the block between 32nd and 33rd streets to make way for a new hotel. Demolition started Tuesday with several wings of the motel flattened by 2 p.m.

Though the project just started, it’s been on the minds of owners Sal Fasano and Sal Fasano Jr. for about three years. The demolition clears a site for a hotel to be flagged under La Quinta Inn & Suites.

“It’s bittersweet because this is the hotel where I grew up working with my father, but now we’re looking forward to new things,” Fasano Jr. said.

Taliban Launches Attack On U.S. Consulate In Afghanistan, At Least Two Security Officers Killed

Militants engaged security forces in a gunfight outside the American consulate in the western Aghan city of Herat early Friday.
The attack began at 6 a.m., when two suicide car bombers exploded 60 meters from the front gate of U.S. Consulate in Herat, Afghanistan.
KABUL, Afghanistan — Taliban militants set off two suicide car bombs in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in western Afghanistan on Friday morning, triggering a gunbattle with security forces that left at least two Afghans dead.

The U.S. said all its personnel from the consulate in the city of Herat were safe and American forces later moved into the area to secure the site.

The attack underscored the perilous security situation in Afghanistan, where U.S.-led troops are reducing their presence ahead of a full withdrawal next year.


D.C. Mayor Vetoes Wage Bill Affecting Wal-Mart

WASHINGTON — Mayor Vincent Gray vetoed a bill Thursday that would force Wal-Mart and other large retailers to pay their employees at least $12.50 an hour, calling it a “job killer” that would not advance the goal of a living wage for District of Columbia workers.

The bill put Washington at the center of a national debate on how far cities should go in trying to raise pay for low-wage workers — and whether larger companies should be required to pay more. Supporters — including unions, clergy and other labor advocates — said Wal-Mart could afford the higher wages, while opponents said the bill unfairly singled out certain businesses and would have a chilling effect on economic development.

Retirement Funds Will Get $9.3 Million Contribution For FY ‘14

The Ocean City government’s contribution towards its trust funds for pensions and other retirement benefits will total roughly $9.3 million for the current fiscal year, the City Council heard this week.

This includes $3.3 million for the public safety employees’ pension fund, $2.4 million for the general employees’ pension fund, and $3.6 million for the fund supporting other post-employment benefits (OPEB) like retiree health care.

“It comes very close to what we budgeted, actually $14,256 less,” Finance Administrator Martha Bennett said.

Perry To Take Trip To Maryland

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is planning a trip to Maryland to tout his state for having lower taxes.

Perry's office announced Thursday he is scheduled to travel to Maryland next week. The Republican has launched radio ads and television ads in Maryland.

Perry's office says the nearly $500,000 in TV and radio buys, as well as the governor's trip, are paid for by a public-private partnership focusing on marketing Texas as a business destination.


If Congress Pays For Obamacare, It Owns It

Quarter Commemorates Fort McHenry

More than 270 million quarters that feature Fort McHenry will be put into circulation, the 19th in a series produced by the U.S. Mint that commemorates America's parks and historic sites.

The program, called the America the Beautiful Quarters program, shows Fort McHenry, the American Flag and the 'bombs bursting in air' as written by Francis Scott Key when he wrote the Star Spangled Banner.

"That's what the coin commemorates," said Dick Peterson, Deputy Director of the U.S. Mint. 


We’ve Been Played

The late Ukrainian violinist Mischa Elman is considered one of the greatest of all time, but he has nothing on Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has played the Obama administration better than any musician.

Washington is astounded at what happened over two days on the Syria front. First, there was a supposed faux pas on Monday in London by Secretary of State John Kerry, who said the only way Syria could avoid a military strike was to give up its chemical weapons. While the State Department was busy walking back his comment, Putin said it was a great idea and offered to facilitate the handover, a proposal to which Walid al-Moallem, the Syrian foreign minister, quickly agreed.

Then on Tuesday, things accelerated at warp speed. Al-Moallem said Syria was willing to become a party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, the international agreement banning the use of chemical weapons, which was the first admission his country possessed them. While the United Nations was preparing to hold one of its toothless “emergency meetings,” Putin then added a caveat: The United States and its allies (meaning Israel) would have to agree that in exchange they would pledge not to attack Syria. It was then announced that Secretary Kerry would meet before the end of the week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Geneva to discuss Syria.


Gansler To Launch Campaign For Md. Governor On Sept. 24 With Seven-Day Statewide Tour

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler (D) plans to officially kick off his 2014 campaign for governor on Sept. 24 with a seven-day tour, aides said Thursday.

The first of Gansler’s 17 scheduled stops will be in Rockville outside the Montgomery County Courthouse in his home jurisdiction, his campaign said. From there, Gansler plans to criss-cross the state, hitting every region before winding up near Ocean City on Oct. 1.


Turning Coffee Grinds Into Biodiesel

A breakthrough in biofuel may be hidden in your garbage can. Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have discovered a way to turn used coffee grinds into biodiesel. They say that the process extracts oil from the spent coffee grounds, which is made into a biofuel. Then, the dried grounds are reused again to filter impurities out of the fuel. The new process could replace the corn and soybeans that are currently used to make biofuel, and those crops could be saved to use for food. Americans alone throw out about one million tons of coffee grounds each year, which means we're dumping a ton a natural energy into landfills everyday. If these spent grounds could be used to power our cars, trucks, and homes, we'd have a constant supply of cleaner energy, and a great excuse to drink more coffee.


ANNAPOLIS, MD (September 13, 2013) -- TODAY, September 13, Governor Martin O’Malley will honor Maryland’s El Salvador community and the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month at the Embassy of the Republic of El Salvador’s Independence Celebration. The Governor will be joined by Ambassador of El Salvador to the U.S. Ruben Zamora and other elected officials.
WHEN: Friday, September 13, at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Embassy of the Republic of El Salvador, 1400 16th Street, NW Washington, DC
In Maryland, our diversity is our greatest strength, and no small part of that diversity is the 124,000 Salvadoran Americans living in Maryland. We recognize that inclusion, diversity, equal rights and an open society make our State a more innovative and creative place for business and job creation. Together, we can work to expand opportunity so that our increasingly diverse middle class can compete and win in the 21st century economy.

Syria Really Needs Our Help

Teen Exorcism

Most young girls are focused on friends, school, or hobbies, but not Brynne Larson and her friends. The trio is much more interested in exorcism. That's right, Brynne's father, Rev. Bob Larson, supposedly trained the girls in the practice of expelling demons, and they headed off to England to fight the “satanic element” of Harry Potter. The girls say that the popularity of the J.K. Rowling's series shows a rise in occult activity across the pond. In a video posted by Daily Mail, 18-year-old Brynne said, “Harry is using this magic for good. So here we have the dangerous idea that you can use this magic for good or bad. When in reality, all magic is bad 'cause you're getting your power from Satan.” No word yet on whether Rand Paul plans to help the girls, or whether Aqua Buddha will be involved.

And that’s the way it is today – Tuesday, September 10, 2013. I’m Thom Hartmann – on the news.

Judge Says Strippers Are Employees, Merit Minimum Wage

Are dancers at a strip club independent contractors or employees? That’s the question involved in a lawsuit against a popular Manhattan club and in at least one other pending lawsuit against a club in Colorado.
Dancers at Rick’s Cabaret in NYC sued the club’s owners saying that they should be provided minimum hourly wages and treated like actual employees. The club tried to counter that each dancer is an independent contractor who makes a good living by earning “performance fees” — usually in the form of cash from between the fingers of tipsy customers.

McDonald’s Manager Accused Of Robbing His Own Restaurant At Gunpoint

There are rough days at work, and then there are the rough days at work where your manager climbs through the drive-thru window and orders everyone into the freezer while he robs the joint. Law enforcement in California’s Bay Area say a McDonald’s manager used a gun to rob his own restaurant and another in the area.

The 42-year-old man allegedly first hit up his own place of employment at the end of August while wearing a white mask and wielding a small-caliber handgun, reports the Los Angeles Times.

Which John Kerry Said The Following?

In the extract below we have taken the liberty of replacing "Vietnam" with "Syria."
In our opinion and from our experience, there is nothing in [Syria] which could happen that realistically threatens the United States of America. And to attempt to justify the loss of one American life in [Syria] by linking such loss to the preservation of freedom, which those misfits supposedly abuse, is to us the height of criminal hypocrisy, and it is that kind of hypocrisy which we feel has torn this country apart. We found that not only was it a civil war, an effort by a people who had for years been seeking their liberation from any colonial influence whatsoever, but also we found that the [Syrians] whom we had enthusiastically molded after our own image were hard put to take up the fight against the threat we were supposedly saving them from. We found most people didn't even know the difference between communism and democracy. They only wanted to work in rice paddies without helicopters strafing them and bombs with napalm burning their villages and tearing their country apart. They wanted everything to do with the war, particularly with this foreign presence of the United States of America, to leave them alone in peace, and they practiced the art of survival by siding with whichever military force was present at a particular time, be it [Al Qaeda], [Saudi] or American.

Data: Americans Rejecting Mainstream Media For British Newspaper

The fastest growing “newspaper” in America is based in Manchester, England. The Internet analytics firm found that the number of visitors to the website of The Guardian grew by 1111.75% in August and an astounding 671,389.51% over the past year, signifying the desire for Americans to find real information about what’s going on.

The main word that people going to The Guardian were searching for was “Syria,” according to Compete’s blog. That would indicate Americans appreciate The Guardian’s skepticism of President Obama’s plans to attack Syria and its reputation for honest reporting. It also indicates that average Americans no longer trust their own media and are increasingly turning to a foreign news source.

In polls previously reported by Anthony Gucciardi on Storyleak, it was found that the mainstream media has virtually lost all trust from the American people.


70-Year-Old Dinwiddie Man Beaten To Death

DINWIDDIE — A frail 70-year-old man known for his long hikes to gather aluminum cans and other items died Tuesday after he was bludgeoned and left lying in the yard of a vacant home, authorities said.

Carter Bascon Northington was found Monday evening lying in a yard in the 23000 block of Cox Road in rural Dinwiddie County, about 3 miles from his home.
He was taken to Southside Regional Medical Center in Petersburg and then to VCU Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.

The Blowback Neocons Fear

We all remember 2007, when the heroic Ron Paul stood in front of the nation at a Republican Presidential Debate, and explained the concept known as “blowback”. It was so out of the ordinary for someone to actually speak the truth to the American people, that Rudy Giuliani’s emotions took over.

Giuliani made the great mistake of confronting Ron Paul on the idea that maybe foreigners don’t like having their lands occupied by the U.S. and use violence as a method to kick them out.

Giuliani played dumb. He’d never heard of such unpatriotic thinking, and actually asked Ron Paul to apologize!!

A Damnable Lie, One Year Later

President Obama, at a campaign rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 12, 2012:

“Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much… It is so good to see all of you. I love you back. I do. I want to begin tonight—(chant of ‘Four more years!’) Thank you. So… I-I wanted to begin tonight by saying a few words about the tough day we’ve had today.” (cheers) “Don’t be, uh… We lost four Americans last night who were killed when they were attacked in a diplomatic post in Libya.”

Earlier in the day, at the White House, Obama said, “We will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done.”

One year later, we’re still waiting for justice.

In the United States, the families of those killed a year ago at the consulate says the Obama administration has yet to tell them what really happened, and why it is that none of the killers have been captured or killed.

“It’s hard, I never expected this from my government,” Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, told Fox News. “All they have to do is tell me the truth.”

Sean Smith was an information officer at he consulate who was among four people killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists.

President Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton initially blamed the attacks on a spontaneous protest against a U.S.-made anti-Islam video despite a CIA report saying otherwise. Smith and other family members say the State Department and the White House have rebuffed their attempts to find out why security was so lax under Clinton, and why Obama did not order military assistance to the embattled officials that night.

Benghazi is one of those issues where we on the Right look at Americans on the other side of the partisan divide and wonder whether we’re from the same planet.


Finally: A White Riot

In Newark, Delaware Monday night, police disbursed more than 3000 rowdy teenagers who were just blowing off some steam at a “Shmacked Tour” party event.

According to WDEL:
More than 1,000 people were partying in the backyard of a house, where a DJ was spinning. When police arrived, the crowd broke up, blocking traffic on South College Avenue and Main Street. Police say many of the students walked on the hoods of cars.

After the party broke up, the crowd — mostly of students from the University of Delaware — swelled to 3000, say police. Local media called it a “riot.”

Fewer Brokers Than Expected Get Certified To Offer New Health Insurance Under Obamacare

The Maryland Health Benefit Exchange is considering adding one more training session for health insurance brokers who want to sell policies through the exchange, after more brokers requested the training.

Some brokers who have attended certification sessions complained that the training is not doing enough to prepare them for the exchange because rates are not set and the computer models are not available to work with.

Out of the state’s 81,000 plus eligible brokers registered in Maryland, approximately 2%, or a little over 1,500, have received certification training. A spokeswoman for the exchange said that the state is evaluating having another training session to add more brokers.


Are The Real Enemies In Syria Or Washington?

“Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.”–Sun Tzu, The Art of War

The definition of what makes an “enemy” may vary from person to person. But I would say that, generally, an enemy is one who has an active ability to do irreparable harm to you or your essential values. He is motivated by destruction, the destruction of all that you hold dear. He is capable and unrelenting. He is a legitimate threat. He will not compromise. He will not waver. He will do anything to wound you. He will not stop. He is possessed.

Americans have spent the better part of a century being told who their enemies are with very little explanation or substantiation. We have blindly rallied around our patriotic prerogative without knowing the root cause of the conflict or the nature of the target we are told to annihilate. We have been suckered into war after war, conjured by international interests in order to lure us into accepting greater centralization and concentrated globalism. As a culture, I’m sorry to say, we have been used. We are a tool of unmitigated doom. We are the loaded gun in the hand of the devil.

This paradigm has done irreparable harm to our standing in the eyes of the peoples of the world. But until recently, it has done very little harm to us as a society. We have allowed ourselves to be used like a bloody club, but we have not yet felt the true pain or the true cost. We have been insulated from consequence. However, this comfortable situation is quickly coming to an end.


Don't Let Them Detroit Virginia

Fight for Tomorrow, a new national Super PAC based in Texas and developed by several conservatives in Virginia and in other states, is launching an advertising campaign intended to impact the Virginia Governor’s race.

Our first ad, “Don't Let Them Detroit Virginia,” is running on TV in Richmond and northern Virginia in the Washington, DC market and in the "A" section of today's Washington Post.

Like-minded individuals can help us run this ad in Virginia. While our focus is on this critical contest for the next two months, our interest is wider than simply one state.


Official Arizona GOP Body Passes Formal Rebuke Of John McCain

The Legislative District 26 Republican Party in Arizona has passed a formal rebuke of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) for abdicating GOP principles in helping Senate Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) secure votes to approve several of President Barack Obama’s controversial nominees.

“Senator John McCain unilaterally negotiated with the Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to secure Republican votes necessary to pass a number of controversial Presidential nominees,” the resolution, which passed the official GOP body in the state by a 24-13 vote with four abstentions on Tuesday evening, reads.


9/11 Commission Chair: Director Of Intelligence James Clapper Should Be Indicted For Perjury

The co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission – Lee Hamilton and Thomas Keane – slammed the NSA last month, saying that spying was out of control.

As the Herald Times reported Saturday, Hamilton has now become more outspoken:
Former U.S. Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., who is now the director of the Center on Congress at IU, used the sharpest language in criticizing the institution where he had worked for three decades.
“The amount of misinformation about government surveillance programs is simply astounding and appalling,” Hamilton said, going on to say he is waiting for Attorney General Eric Holder to indict U.S. Director of Intelligence James Clapper on charges of perjury for saying his agencies were not spying on Americans, which was later debunked by Snowden’s leaks about programs that mine data from companies such as Verizon.
Hamilton was pronounced in his condemnation of the NSA and the legislators who have enabled the secret courts that allow spy programs to operate with inadequate oversight, repeatedly emphasizing activity that he considered “OUT-rageous,”describing the amount of information that is in the hands of the NSA as “mind-boggling.” It would “knock your socks off,” he said.

Is This Why Obama Is So Desperate For A Nice Little War?

The president and his coterie of humanitarian interventionist laptop bombers have been so desperate to push the US into another war in the Middle East they have resorted to cooking the US Intelligence Community books and cherry picking second-hand intercepts and other intelligence to a degree that would even have made President George W. Bush blush.

The “evidence” provided was nothing more than unsupported assertions masked by manufactured outrage and the suggestion that anyone who did not believe them was devoid of a moral compass and quite probably a supporter of Hitler.

So why all the drama? Why the desperation to focus our attention externally, to monsters abroad in need of slaying?

Could it be the mushrooming NSA scandal, that all of a sudden has grown exponentially more serious with today’s Guardian Snowden-leak sourced report that the “NSA shares raw intelligence including Americans’ data with Israel.”

David Petraeus Ambushed, Branded “War Criminal” By Protesters

D.C. Executive Linked To Secret 2008 Aid To Hillary Clinton

The D.C. businessman at the center of an ongoing city corruption investigation secretly spent more than a half-million dollars on get-out-the-vote efforts for Hillary Rodham Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, according to interviews and court documents filed Wednesday.

Jeffrey E. Thompson, a former city contractor who allegedly financed a secret campaign for then-mayoral candidate Vincent C. Gray (D) in 2010, financed an independent effort to reach urban voters on behalf of Clinton in Texas and at least three other states during the 2008 Democratic primaries, according to the interviews and documents.

More Reports Of Sexual Assaults In The Navy

The Navy is receiving more reports of sexual assault among its ranks, and officials say that's a good thing. They say the number of assaults reported has risen about 50 percent in the past year, showing more victims feel comfortable coming to authorities. Like all military branches, the Navy is under pressure to show it is taking the crime seriously. It has changed the way it sells alcohol on base. and ramped up an awareness campaign to encourage people to speak up. The service says it will end the fiscal year with about 1,100 reports of sexual assault. The Pentagon received less than 3,000 sexual assault reports last year across the entire military but estimated the true number of incidents at 26,000.
