Balloon Glow At Pork In The Park Last Night





It's About to Get Real...

By Thornton Crowe

Last week, we discussed the GOP implementing a Jim Crow tactic by disenfranchising voters from Colorado and Wyoming without one vote being cast yet pledging delegates to Cruz. Well, as the week began on Tuesday with a huge win for Donald Trump in his home state, New York, the tide has changed considerably.


As many of you know, RNC Chair Reince Priebus, at a meeting in Florida, called out the #NeverTrump group and chastised them as well as called out the Trump campaign to stop with the heated rhetoric. The Rules committee for the Convention has now decided they will not be changing or altering any rules. What's interesting about this turn is that they were within their purvey to make changes as they do before most major election conventions; however, due to the strong backlash, it seems they have had a change [sic] of heart.

Interestingly enough among all the high brow talk and rhetoric, the Gateway Pundit published a story Friday about a watchdog group in Florida have now filed a lawsuit against the GOP and Priebus for allowing Cruz delegate 'stealing' over the last couple of weeks. As I predicted months ago, voters would get to the point where they were so disenfranchised and angry by the establishment seeking to tell them who they should support, lawsuits would surely be filed over the nefarious activities.

Some examples, delegates getting favors, travel, pretty much anything they want short of money from candidates who seek their support. Cruz has been playing that game footloose and fancy free. Cruz's supporters are happily reveling but, like I said last week, when you revel in one person's loss of a right, you are, in essence, accepting your own forfeiture of same right.

We shall see what happens as we go to the polls this Tuesday where Trump holds a healthy lead against his contenders along with the other states voting, which are as follows: Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware. Everyone expects the Trump Camp will have another very good Tuesday.


Many speculate this will be a nail-biting fight all the way down to the California wire on June 7th. Paul Manafort, Trump's Convention Manager, versed in political delegates since the 1976 when Reagan ran a bid against incumbent, Gerald Ford, stated that while they need some in California, he's confident they will have the 1237 delegates. He plainly states to Sean Hannity last week during the post-election wrap-up, "There will be no second ballot."

Manafort on Sean Hannity on Colorado




Do you think given the fact that John Kasich and Ted Cruz are mathematically out quit now or continue on? Do you think this will cause the GOP to step back and take stock after the General Election?

Teachers union calls on school to cancel Donald Trump rally; protests planned

The union that represents most teachers in Maryland called on the Worcester County school system to block Donald Trump's campaign from using a high school gym to hold a rally Wednesday evening.

"Donald Trump and his divisive, fear-mongering rhetoric have no place in the halls of Maryland's public schools," Maryland State Education Association president Betty Weller said in a statement. "Trump's eagerness to bully minorities would be unacceptable if it came from any of our students."

Liberal group Progressive Maryland issued the same call and launched an online petition that had been signed more than 500 times by Tuesday afternoon.

Trump's rally is being held at Stephen Decatur high school in Berlin at 7 p.m. Wednesday. Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz have already held events in Maryland, as the protracted battle for the Republican nomination continues.

SU reacts to racial Blackwell drawing

Two days after the end of the eighth annual “Stop Hatin’” week at Salisbury University, on April 10, a racially charged drawing was found on a whiteboard in Blackwell Library.

Although SU’s administration has not come forward with new information, a faculty member told The Flyer two students were a part of the drawing.


“I can confirm two students have been identified,” English Associate Professor James King said, “and are both African American.”


King declined to give more information.


The SU Police Department is currently investigating the incident as a hate crime. However, they have not named any suspects. This could prove difficult, though, as there are no cameras in the study room in which the whiteboard was located.

BREAKING NEWS: GET YOUR TICKETS TO BERLIN, (STEPHEN DECATUR) RALLY WHILE THEY LAST

A Viewer Writes: Dunkin Donuts on Nanticoke Rd

"I don't understand why the staff at this Dunkin Donuts would find it appropriate to take bets on whether my wife was "fat or skinny" after she placed an order for myself, herself, and my two children. My wife could clearly hear their comments since her windows were down in the car. The two employees were described as a young man with light hair, and a young girl with brown hair working at the 1200 Nanticoke Rd. Salisbury, Md 21801 on Sunday April 17, 2016 at 5:15pm. I am appalled at the lack of discretion and civility your staff extrudes. I plan on contacting a local media source to show Salisbury, Md which Dunkin Donuts employs people lacking common sense. I look forward to your response. Thank you. "

TARGET STORES OPEN WOMEN’S BATHROOMS, CHANGING ROOMS TO MEN

“Everyone deserves to feel like they belong.”

The Target department store chain has jumped into the transgender bathroom debate by declaring that men who claim to be women may use whatever bathroom or changing room they choose.

“Inclusivity is a core belief at Target,” a new company statement reads. “It’s something we celebrate. We stand for equality and equity, and strive to make our guests and team members feel accepted, respected and welcomed in our stores and workplaces every day.”

The retailer added, “We welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”

“Everyone deserves to feel like they belong,” the statement concluded. “You’ll always be accepted, respected and welcomed at Target.”

Girl killed in bathroom 'didn't believe in fighting,' friends say

WILMINGTON, Del. — Friends and neighbors knew Amy Inita Joyner-Francis as the quiet teen who would focus on her homework. Another knew her as the girl who liked blue candy.

But Nik Stryminski remembers her as the one who kept him safe and out of a fight earlier this school year. He said the incident happened in math class at Howard High School of Technology. It started when an argument between him and another student began to teeter toward violence.

That’s when Amy, 16, stepped in, Stryminski said, backed him into a corner, and calmed him down.

“She wasn’t worried about herself. She was worried about me not fighting,” he said. “She didn’t believe in fighting, and the craziest thing is she died in a fight.”

Amy died Thursday morning at Howard High School during a violent attack in the girls bathroom. Wilmington Police have not announced the cause of her death or details related to the attack.

JUST IN: Harriet Tubman to replace Andrew Jackson on $20 bill

Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20, sources tell CNN.

The announcement is expected to come later Wednesday from Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, who will also reveal that a montage of leaders from the women's suffrage movement will be added to the back of the $10. A Treasury official confirmed to CNN that Tubman's portrait will appear on the $20.

The redesigned $10 bill is expected to enter circulation by 2020, though it's unclear what the $20's time frame is.

The women pictured on the back of the $10 will be the first to appear on U.S. paper currency in more than 100 years.

DONALD TRUMP COMES TO THE GREATEST LITTLE TOWN IN AMERICA, BERLIN, MARYLAND












First I want to thank all of the people who welcomed me while waiting so patiently in what seemed like a forever long line. 

This event was flat out incredible. It was such an honor to have Mr. Trump visit the Eastern Shore and excite and unite TEN THOUSAND PEOPLE. I know many people who decided not to wait and instead followed our live stream link of the event. 

So let's hear what you thought of the event. I'm still in awe. 

Protesters At Trump Rally In Berlin, Maryland

I don't get it. Why are these protesters at a Trump Rally. OK, so you are gay, I get that. Did Donald Trump come out and say he is against someone being gay? "Make America Gay Again". I just makes no sense to me. 

What's Your Thoughts On This: Mexicans Kicked Out Of Berlin Trump Rally

The sad part about this is that it does not show what happened beforehand. Perhaps some of you who were sitting around this group can explain what they did. WARNING: Some profanity.

WOW, Change Of Plans For Trump Event In Berlin

I announced earlier that the event would be held outdoors. I was wrong. It is hard to believe that as of last night there were over 18,000 tickets given out for this event. One Police Officer told me they had heard up to 30,000 tickets are out there. It's hard to know who to believe at this time but what I can now tell you is, this event is going to be NUTS! 

I still believe Mr. Trump will not arrive until closer to 8:00 PM. However, with the number of tickets out there, plan on getting there early because they do plan on holding it indoors. I have a feeling a LOT of people are not going to be happy. 

They should have reserved the Convention Center in Ocean City. 

Question Of The Day


BREAKING: Kenyan Government Releases Obama’s Real Birth Certificate

Obama’s birth question rose yet again! But, this time, it has documents as a proof! New reports that surfaced, contain 11 documents from the Office of the Principal Register of the Nyanza Provice in Kenya. They are concerning Obama’s birth and early childhood in the country!

These documents have been requested by the United States for years, but the Kenyan Supreme Court finally ordered the authorities to release the documents based on a law on “access to information.”

What’s ‘shocking’ here, is that Obama was born ONE year BEFORE his father moved to Hawaii and met his mother. The documents also confirm the biggest question of them all! Obama was born in Lamu, Kenya. Now how did the administration have those documents they’ve been showing us over the past few years? Where did they come from?

A Viewer Writes: Verizon Union Issues

Of all the comments posted, none of them press for facts. Nor do all the letters and statements (like the one posted here) from the union state facts. What is the profit margin of the company? Worded another way, what is the amount of money (percentage) after the company pulls in its profit, then pays all the expenses (utilities, rent, mortgages on buildings, equipment, supplies, salaries, benefits, unemployment tax, employers portion of FICA, on and on....)?

As far as salary increases, 6.5% is something. As far as a "step backwards," welcome to life. Welcome to politics and shooting yourself in the foot by the union supporting liberal policies. Sad that now the first thing on a persons mind when looking for a job is the medical coverage. Used to be what the whole salary was and if you could make your house and car payments. House and car are now secondary. BTW, there are no specifics on salaries. Someone answer this question. I DARE YOU. Say I have 10 years with the company, and I am a phone line installer, set up person, field engineer type. Also troubleshoot and repair the lines on the poles and going into buildings. Jack of all trades with a bucket truck. What would said person make per hour? Let us as blog readers decide what to think knowing that information. (Military and Government posts their pay scales for all the world to see, why not the employees the unions are supporting do as well?)

Ultimately, if you don't like your pay. Leave.

Job security, no such thing anymore. Welcome to life. 50 miles before compensation? Right, personal car you get mileage pay. Company vehicle, no wear and tear on your own car. Be aware typical travel time in many companies is only while you would normally be on the clock. You work 7-4. But the time for you to fly or drive somewhere on business is from 7 to 7. You don't get paid those 3 other hours, only mileage during those 3 hours unless you are flying commercial.

Pensions. Few and far between now days. Take what you can get offered. Join the military, be a reservist and get a pension starting at 60. Be aggressive with your 401K and your investments. Buy some rental properties. Be a scrooge. Don't buy a third car, boat, jet sky, pool, cruises, long vacations. Save up your money.

Call sharing. I want the contractor to get to my house faster to fix the line ripped down in the storm. The call center that is loosing the positions, you should demand that you handle the calls and push to exceed the time frame it takes for a contractor to be notified so he can get here faster. If the local call centers are slow, get rid of them.

Healthcare. "increases in healthcare contributions while diminishing plan coverage." Welcome to ObamaCare. Welcome to today. Your union and others pressed for it, now you got it. Personal story. I worked for a company with BCBS. Year change from 2012 to 2013, premiums when up 49%. Changed to Coventry. Again, year change from 2013 to 2014 premiums went up %15. Deductibles where $5000 up front and then pay 20% after that up to limit of $7500. Then insurance paid 100%. I left and now work as a contractor and I take care of my own medical through Tricare. Benefit of my part time military service. Our CEO offered $10000 a year to each of us if we were to get our own medical. Think of the savings he would have and the savings of having to hire a person who's only job was dealing with medical issues of the rest of the employees?

Retiree Medical. Again, see the above paragraph. Such is life. Get a part time gig at Home Depot, make a hobby a money maker. Work if you can work. The days of being 65 with your feet up chillin' on the back deck are gone.

THERE WAS NOT ONE BULLET HOLE IN THE VEHICLE. DURING THEIR INITIAL INVESTIGATION, POLICE SAY FISHER WAS TRYING TO AVOID SEARCH OF HIS CAR AND A SEARCH WARRANT AFTER THE INCIDENT TURNED UP MARIJUANA.

A Viewer Writes To Mark McIver: Subject: Republicans against Trump

Mark,

When I visited the opening of Trump HQ, I was later told that Ms. Wellfonger (sp?) was there. From her actions, she is a staunch Democrat. Now we have Julie Brewery pounding against Trump. I really don’t get it, (well, yes I do)

I have avoided approaching the Central Committee for membership just because of these two, but I guess my real question is, do you and the rest agree with these people and back them up somehow? I heard now that there was a shared table space at 3rd Friday with the democrats club. True?

Are R’s and D’s the same party now here and lobbying against Trump? Is it now R&D against Trump? With Cruz being the biggest RINO in the race, I can see the chances of that.

I mean, that’s what I’m seeing nationwide, and am wondering if your Committee is doing the same in light of your present membership? Colorado and Wyoming seem to be happy to ignore the voting process, and with the current “fear” being displayed by the RNC over Trump’s popularity, I wonder why the RNC ever accepted him as a bona fide candidate in the first place, and why they have now decided to become the Choice of the Peoples worst enemy.

I would truly like to get involved in our local and national election process as a Conservative person, but am quite put off with what I would have to work with here. Would me joining advance any of your agenda, or would I be better off to just start my own Trump Support Organization that would not think twice about going Independent with Donald if he was finally voted out by the dead RNC?

Pictures Speak Volumes

A Viewer Writes: Jim Ireton Washington Gay Paper

Joe - Look at the link. This is a DC gay paper article Ireton is putting around on the web.  It's about gay and transgender people running in MD for Congress. The paper does a side by side picture with the other transsexual person running.  The pictures are side by side and it made me laugh because it looks like how Ireton would look as a transsexual.  Haha.  Take a look. It's like which one is Ireton? or is it Ireton in drag?  What in the world does a transsexual have with him? or running for Congress? He just is embarrassing. I have gay friends and family members. I really don't care but with all the issues on the Shore with jobs, farms, etc what in the world does Ireton sleeping with men have to do with us? with our needs?  I won't vote for him because I think he is crazy especially what he did to that Salisbury employee (woman) that he attacked.
Two LGBT Democrats who are running for Congress will be on the ballot in next week’s Maryland primary.

Kristin Beck, a transgender former U.S. Navy SEAL, is running against House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) in the state’s 5th Congressional District that includes Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s Counties and portions of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s Counties.

Beck writes on her website that southern Maryland “must decide whether we keep heading down the path we are on or do we make some kind of change for the better.” The former U.S. Navy SEAL accused Hoyer of “concentrating so much” on bailing out banks and other “huge issues” when she spoke with the Washington Blade last year after declaring her candidacy.

“It seems like the district has been forgotten,” said Beck.

A report that Beck’s campaign filed with the Federal Election Commission on July 15, 2015, indicates she raised $6,125 in the second quarter of last year. The FEC notes that she did not submit reports for the third and fourth quarters of 2015.
Ireton: Equality is ‘cornerstone’ of American life

Gay former Salisbury Mayor Jim Ireton is challenging U.S. Rep. Andy Harris (R-Md.) in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District that includes all of the Eastern Shore.

Ireton makes a broad reference to LGBT rights on his website.

“Equality is the cornerstone of the American way of life,” he writes. “Everyone should be able to earn the same pay for the same work and have access the same to goods and services regardless of gender, race, creed, or who they love.”

A report that Ireton’s campaign filed with the FEC indicates he raised $31,576 from Jan. 1- March 31 of this year. He had slightly more than $10,000 in cash on hand at the end of the first quarter of 2016.

Joe, I also came across this.  Speaking of women.  So he says Harris has a War on Women and here that he won't defend women's rights.  Where did Ireton become a champion of women? When? He has done so many things AGAINST WOMEN from what I read in your web articles.  This guy is amazing.  Like almost that he is some psycho or pathological liar. It reminds me of my grandson when I catch him sneaking a cookie and he shoves it in his pocket and puts his empty hands up and says what cookie? Ireton is like a child!

Congressman Harris: Harriet Tubman is a Role Model for all Americans

WASHINGTON, DC: Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) released the following statement applauding Treasury Secretary Lew’s decision to honor Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill:

“It’s great to see Secretary Lew honor Maryland’s Harriet Tubman by making her the first female to appear on United States currency. I applaud the recognition of Harriet Tubman’s contribution to our nation’s history and I am proud to have joined with Senator Cardin to designate a national park in her honor last year. Her relentless fight for equality and justice is a testament to her courage and resolve to improve the American way of life. Harriet Tubman is a role model for all Americans and someone who deserves to be honored.”

Congressman Harris joined forces with Senator Ben Cardin in 2014 to honor Harriet Tubman in the designation of a national park on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park is located in Caroline, Dorchester, and Talbot Counties in Maryland. Harriet Tubman was born in Dorchester County, Md., where she spent nearly 30 years as a slave. She escaped slavery in 1849, but returned to the Eastern Shore several times over the course of 10 years to lead hundreds of African Americans to freedom in the North. Known as “Moses” by African-American and white abolitionists, she reportedly never lost a “passenger” on the Underground Railroad. The national historical park in Maryland will trace Tubman’s early life on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where she was born and later escaped from slavery to become one of the leaders on the Underground Railroad.

Hoyer Okay with Biological Men Using Women’s Restrooms

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said on Tuesday that people “ought to be able to use the restroom of the gender they identify with.”

CNSNews.com asked Hoyer at his weekly meeting with reporters at the U.S. Capitol: “There has been a great deal of controversy lately about North Carolina’s bathroom law. Do you believe that biological males should be allowed to use the ladies’ room in federal facilities and parks around the country?”

Hoyer did not directly answer the yes or no question, but instead stated his “position” on the issue.

“Look, I think the position we’ve taken is clear that people ought to be able to use the restroom of the gender they identify with. That’s been our position,” Hoyer said. “It’s still our position.”
