Americans think more than half of vets have mental problems, survey says

The general public vastly overestimates the number of post-9/11 veterans with mental health conditions, a misconception veterans advocates say threatens the overall well-being and employment prospects of former troops.

A survey of more than 1,000 adults in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom found that roughly 40 percent believed more than half the 2.8 million veterans who have served since 2001 have a mental health condition.

The actual figure lies somewhere between 10 percent and 20 percent, or 280,000 to just more than a half million, according to a Rand Corp. estimate.

The recent survey, conducted by the George W. Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, also found that while a majority of veterans say traumatic brain injury and combat-related mental health conditions are legitimate war wounds, 80 percent say embarrassment or shame is a barrier to seeking treatment.

A similar percentage say concerns for future employment also kept them from getting medical treatment and therapy for these conditions.


The Irony: The DNC Builds 4mile, 8foot High Wall Around Around Philly Convention Site

To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one.

The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)

I thought the Democrats were about building bridges, not building walls. Seems like that is a lie. The Democrat National Convention is being protected by several miles of fencing. This is to prevent the party elites from having to mingle with their political base. All the people who supported Bernie Sanders out of their contempt for the vile bitch Hillary Clinton will not be allowed to have their voices heard. I’m also certain that the former Bernie supporters who infiltrate the convention and protest this will be promptly removed. There is simply nothing democratic about the Democrat party.

Lottery Winner Invested Part Of $3M Prize in Meth Ring

BRUNSWICK, Ga. — A Georgia man could face life in prison after he invested part of his $3 million lottery winnings in a crystal meth ring, reports CBS affiliate WJAX.

Ronnie Music Jr., 45, purchased large quantities of the drug meth with lottery winnings he won from a scratch-off ticket.

Investigators determined Music was supplying meth to a group of co-conspirators who were caught trying to sell approximately 11 pounds, worth more than $500,000 on the streets.

Agents seized more than $1 million of meth, firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, multiple cars and $600,000 in cash as part of the case.


The Architect of Destruction By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, & disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate & maintain power and control over others.

Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. instilled in him by his family & mentors.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .
Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul & the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride & love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. Or its people, with deep appreciation & genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings & our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," (no he gets goose bumps when he hears the ''Muslim call to prayer" (his words) or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of " America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals & told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering & then coming to America , penniless, & the oppor
tunities they had for building a business & life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade & eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.
Rather he was separated from all of these experiences & doesn't really understand us & what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country & insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States & the traditions & patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better & grateful & proud that in a short time our country became a leader, & a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten & create fear while demeaning & degrading any American who opposes his policies & actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem & not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics & displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, & anxiety among the people of America , rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved & ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort & security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, & disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control & mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, & self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, & assert a dictatorial form of government.

Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm & hurt the people & this country.

Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming & trustworthy force.

Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, & quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America, & the epitome of a Demagogue.

Little-Known Tax Credit Helping Homeowners

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Achieving the American Dream of home ownership comes at a price. For some, that price is too high. Now a local consumer group is spreading the word about a little-known tax credit that can mean the difference between keeping or losing your home, WJZ’s Amy Yensi reports.

Loretta Jefferson packed the last 20 years of her life into boxes, fearing she would lose her home.

“I was anxious. I was thinking, ‘Well, where am I going to live now?'” said Jefferson.

The 69-year-old retired secretary paid off her Brooklyn row home, but couldn’t make ends meet to pay the taxes. That put her at risk of a tax lien foreclosure.

“Oh my gosh. I’ve been in this house all these many years. And now for about $1,000 or so dollars, I’m going to lose my house,” said Jefferson.

In a last-ditch effort, she applied for the Homeowner’s Property Tax Credit. A few weeks later, she got the news she had been hoping for.


A Viewer Writes: Obama Announcement


I never spend the day watching TV, but today, mine was on for a while watching CNN and FOXNEWS.

I am shocked at CNN’s spin on Donald Trump’s sarcastic remark about, Hey, Russia! Maybe you can find the 30,000 emails we’re looking for! The Cnn folks spun it as Trump somehow trying to make a “pact” with Putin asking him to actually break in to Hillary’s email system and give us the meat!

This is the furthest from the truth, as I turned to the FOXNEWS network and saw a video of Barack Hussein Obama making an announcement to the American People that it was IN FACT the Russians that supplied these DNC emails exposing hate and disgust with Sanders, Hispanics, LGBTQ’s, and others.

The Dems only want to wave off these facts and the content of the emails by claiming Trump or the Russians must be the “bad guys” here, when the “Bad Guys” are just plain the DNC, Hillary, and all the members thereof.

Piteous, at best.

Subject: Ron Paul: The Path to Fed-Exit

The best way to rein in the Fed is to restore the gold standard

I recently proposed that the liberty movement capitalize on Brexit with “Fed-exit”: a campaign to “secede” from the Federal Reserve. Fed-exit could be accomplished with a few simple policy changes.

Passing Audit the Fed is a good first step toward Fed-exit. Contrary to the Federal Reserve’s propaganda, auditing the Fed will not reduce the Federal Reserve’s mythical “independence.” It will simply allow Congress and the people to learn the full truth about the Fed’s conduct of monetary policy.

However, the desperation with which the Fed fights the audit bill suggests it believes increased transparency will boost support for Fed-exit. Considering what we discovered from the limited audit of the Fed’s activities during the 2008 financial crisis, the Fed’s fears may be justified. That audit revealed that between 2007 and 2008 the Federal Reserve loaned over $16 trillion — more than four times the annual budget of the United States — to foreign central banks and politically-influential private companies! Imagine what would be revealed by a full audit that includes looking at the Fed’s recent explosion of money creation via “quantitative easing.”


No charges in boat fight caught on camera in the Choptank River

CHOPTANK RIVER - The fight happened Saturday afternoon on a rental boat cruising the Choptank River near Cambridge. Volunteers working the Cambridge Yacht Club Fun Regatta started recording with their cellphones after the power boat drove into the course, veering alarmingly close to sailboats in the race.

Then they noticed two people onboard were having a nasty fist fight . The video shows punch after punch to the face. You can hear passengers screaming, some of them trying to break up the brawl between two men.

"We now have a fight on board the vessel, and we're gonna have two drunk people in the water pretty soon,” one witness says on the video.


All Labs Matter

Baltimore City's homicide rate climbing

BALTIMORE —There have been 31 homicides in Baltimore in July, with the most recent one happening Tuesday morning.

Just across from the neighborhood sign welcoming people Walbrook Junction, there was a disturbing scene: another homicide investigation.

"It's sad that our youth going to be dying like this," one resident said.

Another one woman describes how seeing the yellow tape with black letters used to mark off the area where police are conducting investigations has become much too common.

With only four more days left in July, police are investigating the city's 31st homicide so far this month.

"It's too much now. It's too much," the resident said.


Clinton Delegate Explains how Democrats Will Ban All Guns

Former Golf Land Granted Rezoning For Home Project

SNOW HILL – The Worcester County Commissioners last week approved the rezoning of the former Pine Shore Golf facility.

The Beauchamp Road property, which had carried E-1 estate zoning, will be reclassified as R-1 residential. Charles Nichols, whose family purchased the property in 2014, said the rezoning would allow the 950-acre property to be developed in a reasonable manner.

“We’re deeply involved in sustainable development,” Nichols said. “We think we have an opportunity here not only to make a change but make something that’s positive.”

Nichols said his family has owned the land adjacent to the defunct golf course since 1881. The family purchased the golf course property in 2014 when it was in foreclosure. Though the property needs some work, Nichols said the family was eager to improve it.

“This would give us an opportunity to maximize the development potential in a good way,” Nichols said.


Democrats Agree to Build a Wall

The Democrats have finally come around to the notion that secure borders keep us safe. Sort of...

To the Democratic National Committee elites, keeping average Americans away from their convention is a good idea, while protecting the southern border from intruding terrorists, rapists and murderers is a bad one.

The DNC has erected a four-mile fence around its convention site at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center. (Isn’t it ironic they’re doing so much to protect a site named after a bank?)

The fence, which appears to be about 8 feet tall, is intended to keep out any individuals with whom Democratic Party leaders, delegates and other liberal elites would rather not mingle.

Fox 29’s Steve Keeley shared a picture of a portion of the fence he said was erected near the intersection of Pattison and Broad.


Donald Trump blasts Freddie Gray prosecutor after all charges are dropped

Donald Trump lashed out Wednesday at the Baltimore prosecutor who brought charges against police officers in the high-profile death of Freddie Gray, saying that 'she ought to prosecute herself' instead.

Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's office said an hour before Trump's press conference in Miami that all remaining charges against officers in the case were being dropped.

The move means no one will be help responsible for Gray's April 2015 death in the back of a police transport van.

'I do have a reaction to the prosecutor in Baltimore who indicted those police officers. I do,' Trump said at his Trump National Doral Miami country club, in a reaction a question from Daily Mail Online.

'I think she ought to prosecute herself. Okay? That's my reaction.'


Florida Man Pleads Guilty to Helping Disguise Foreign Contribution during 2012 Presidential Election and Making False Declaration before Grand Jury

A Tampa, Florida, man pleaded guilty today to helping funnel $80,000 in campaign contributions from a foreign source to the joint fundraising committee of the President of the United States during the 2012 presidential election and to making a false declaration before the grand jury, announced Assistant Attorney General Leslie R. Caldwell of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman of the District of New Jersey.

William Argeros, 57, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Madeline Cox Arleo of the District of New Jersey to an information charging him with knowingly and willfully making foreign contributions and donations in connection with the 2012 presidential election and to a fundraising and political campaign committee of the president, aggregating $25,000 or more during a calendar year, and to knowingly making a false declaration before the grand jury concerning his role in facilitating and concealing the foreign contribution. Sentencing has been scheduled for Nov. 9, 2016, before Judge Arleo.

According to his plea agreement, Argeros admitted that in September 2012, he facilitated the transfer of $80,000 from a foreign source to Bilal Shehu, a U.S. citizen residing in New Jersey. Shehu, in turn, provided it to a joint fundraising committee – including the authorized campaign committee of the president – in an effort to disguise the true origin of the money and so that a foreign national could attend a campaign event on Oct. 8, 2012, in San Francisco, according to Argeros’s plea. Argeros also admitted to providing instructions to foreign individuals on how to transfer the money and provide payment to the joint fundraising committee. Federal law prohibits foreign nationals from making contributions to federal candidates or fundraising committees.


Six Union Bigwigs Condemning One Percent Earned $2.3M in 2015

The six union leaders who took the stage on Monday at the Democratic National Convention to condemn the richest one percent took home nearly $2.3 million in total compensation in 2015, according to federal labor filings.

Assembled delegates heard from the presidents of the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU), National Education Association (NEA), American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), AFL-CIO, and Service Employees International Union (SEIU) on the first night of the convention. Each labor leader earned well over six figures, salaries paid for by the dues of their hardworking members.


Massive Collusion?

If you don't believe it, the proof is in the email. Found in the many emails on WikiLeaks, below shows the collusion between Clinton/DNC/Media that was so prevalent during primaries and now in the general election.

DNC Turns Women’s Restroom into ‘All-Gender’ Bathroom

Women’s bathroom near media section reassigned to all genders

The Democratic National Convention has turned a women’s restroom into an “all-gender” bathroom at the Wells Fargo Arena.

The all-gender bathroom is one of the ways the DNC is infusing its party platform into the arena accommodations. The arena also has a “gluten-free zone” and garbage cans are categorized by landfill, recycling, and compost.

A DNC volunteer told the Washington Free Beacon that there is only one all-gender restroom to accommodate transgender individuals.

The change leaves female convention goers with one fewer bathroom than male attendees.

No transgender individuals were spotted using the restroom, but it was being used by both male and female reporters, as well as some cameramen. The bathroom is closest to the media section of the arena.


NYT Ashley Parker Lies about Trump Presser

By Thornton Crowe

While it may be no surprise that once again, Donald Trump has broken more barriers and taboos by having a press conference in a time where precedent dictates the opposing party's time to keep quite, the New York Times writer, Ashley Parker has blatantly misquoted and misrepresented his words in her article.

Her headline, Donald Trump Calls on Russia to Find Hillary Clinton’s Missing Emails, suggests that he was doing this; however, anyone who watches the presser can easily tell, he was being sarcastic - far from a serious plea for Russians' aid. Parker has given a new name to journalistic larceny and should issue an apology to both Trump and the voters for her grossly misleading -- big lie!

In a time where MSM is in great scrutiny due to the Wikileaks expose, Parker's misstep is one that grossly exposes the NYT's aim to continue misinforming voters. Hence, betraying their own biased towards Clinton in this election. It's no shocker that the Times would promote a liberal candidate - especially Clinton, but this goes beyond any semblance or guise of journalist integrity. It's just downright DISHONEST on their editorial staff and Parker's part.

As the Wikileaks continue to come out, the more we see, the more angry the voting public becomes because, let's face it, we've been had -- and its not just with this election but for decades. The media's love affair with the Democrat party has been a long one, but its been detrimental to Americans trying to parse through the issues to make their decisions about whom to cast a vote. It has been dastardly on the part of the Media Puppets to shameless run a propaganda arm and it evades all proof or truth.

Whatever happened to journalistic integrity? When did it become acceptable, this theater journalism? Why do Americans tolerate being lied to with such regularity?

Insanity needs to stop. People, Wake Up! The future of America hangs in the balance. Time for this stupidity has come to an end. Trust but VERIFY!

And to Ms. Parker, don't twist words around to suit your agenda. It makes you irrelevant and brands you untrustworthy to report for even the New York Times! Shameless. 

Below is Donald Trump's Press Conference - 7/27/2016

Watch the presser for yourself, then read Ashley Parker's article. Be your own judge!

Police rescue 2 teen girls from Md. human trafficking ring

WASHINGTON — A Laurel man is charged with multiple counts of human trafficking and prostitution in a case involving two teen girls that spanned Maryland, Virginia and the District.

The case got its start after Howard County detectives who are focused on monitoring websites known for illicit ads, including Backpage, saw the photo of a young teen on a number of sites. An undercover detective reached out to the girl and later learned she was 13 years old.

“In doing so, (the detective) posed as a young teen who was inquiring about working with the girl to make money. Immediately the girl replied, ‘Absolutely, we’ll come pick you up at a public location,'” said Sherry Llewellyn, spokeswoman with Howard County Police.

Study says wind turbines, solar farms could spike energy prices, cause job losses

North Carolina’s renewable energy mandate will cause a spike in electric bills and the loss of more than 43,000 jobs by the end of the decade, a new study contends.

Dozens of solar energy projects with thousands of panels glistening by the roadsides have been constructed in northeastern North Carolina in counties such as Pasquotank and Currituck. A 22,000-acre wind turbine farm – the largest in the southeastern United States – is under construction west of Elizabeth City.

North Carolina law requires that 12.5 percent of the energy produced comes from renewable power sources by 2021. It is the only mandate of its kind in the Southeast, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.

Virginia has a voluntary goal of 15 percent renewable energy by 2025.


Paul Ryan Flees Grieving Moms Trying To Show Him Photos Of Their Children Killed By His Open Borders Agenda

JANESVILLE, WI– American mothers, whose children were killed by illegal aliens, say that House Speaker Paul Ryan and members of his security detail fled from his guarded estate on Saturday as they attempted to present Ryan with the photos of their murdered children, and show him the true cost of his open borders agenda.

On Saturday, four “angel moms” held a press conference in front of Ryan’s personal border wall. The mothers explained that they deserved to be able to give heir children the same security that Ryan gives his children.

During the press event, the mothers announced their decision to endorse Wisconsin businessman Paul Nehlen in his effort to unseat Ryan in his August 9th primary election. Nehlen is running a campaign that is focused on securing the border and curbing immigration into the United States.

EXCLUSIVE: Clinton scandal may drag down Laureate Univrsity

Reports of faulty corporate record keeping and links to the growing controversy over allegations of Clinton Foundation “pay-to-play” schemes could doom the pending initial public offering (IPO) of the for-profit Laureate Education university, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.

Billionaire George Soros, Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen and private equity investor Henry Kravis all financially back Laureate. The company paid former President Bill Clinton nearly $16.5 million as honorary chancellor from 2010 to 2015.

Laureate officials are trying to raise $1 billion in the IPO and told potential investors in a May 26, 2016, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing update the company’s financial statements may be inaccurate and unreliable, after uncovering “five material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.”


6,726 Syrian Refugees Admitted to U.S. So Far in FY16--But Only 23 Are Christians

( – With ten weeks to go until the end of the fiscal year, the Obama administration continues to admit Syrian refugees at an accelerated pace, and has now exceeded two-thirds of President Obama’s target of 10,000 by September 30.

The proportion of Christians among those resettled continues to languish below half of one percent, while other non-Sunnis account for just over one percent.

As of Monday, 1,515 Syrian refugees fleeing the civil war in their homeland had been admitted since the beginning of July, and a total of 6,726 since FY 2016 began on October 1, according to State Department Refugee Processing Center data.

Of the July arrivals, 1,501 (99.0 percent) were Sunnis, and three (0.19 percent) were Christians. The other 11 (0.72 percent) were other Muslims.


Legalized marijuana sends more kids to the hospital in Colorado

More children are ending up in the emergency room or needing other treatment for marijuana exposure in Colorado since the state legalized pot for recreational use, a new study finds.

Researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, in Aurora, wanted to see if unintentional marijuana exposures in children ticked up after the drug became legal for adult recreational use in 2014. (Medical use of marijuana has been legal in Colorado since 2000.)

The authors analyzed data on hospital admissions at a children's hospital and at a regional poison center between 2009 and 2015. Eighty-one children -- all under 10 years old -- were treated at the hospital and 163 marijuana exposure calls were made to the poison center.


Black Lives Matter Protesters Torch French Town

Multiple Black Lives Matter protesters have been arrested in France after demonstrations against the death of a Malian man in police custody left Beaumont-sur-Oise and other nearby towns in flames. Of those arrested, some are being charged with throwing incendiary objects at security forces and others for “trying to burn down” their towns.

Despite a huge police presence, Saturday marked a fifth night of violence in the Val d’Oise district after the death of Adama Traoré in police custody on Tuesday. During demonstrations against Mr. Traoré’s death, protesters, some wielding baseball bats, torched cars, petrol pumps, bins, and piles of rubbish. Buildings were also set alight, including a large warehouse in Persan, near Beaumont-sur-Oise.


Trump Defends Muslim Ban - Constitution Doesn't Necessarily Give Us the Right to Commit Suicide

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” while discussing banning Muslims form certain territories, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump doubled down ona claim he had made a week earlier in an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” with his vice-presidential pick Gov. Mike Pence (R-IN), which was the Constitution was “great,” but it didn’t “necessarily give us the right to commit suicide.”

Trump said, “I don’t think so. I actually don’t think it’s a pull back in fact, you could say it’s an expansion. I’m looking now at territories. People were so upset when I used the word Muslim. Remember this. I’m OK with that because I’m talking territory instead of Muslim. But just remember this, our Constitution is great, but it doesn’t necessarily give us the right to commit suicide, OK? We have a religious, everybody wants to be protected, and that’s great and that’s a wonderful part of our Constitution. I view it differently. Why are we committing suicide? Why are we doing that? I live with our Constitution. I love our Constitution. I cherish our Constitution. We’re making it territorial. We have nations and will come out with a number of the places and it’s very complex.”


Was Trump Right? Leaked DNC Email Shines Unexpected Light On Cruz's "Militant" Father

In yet another awkward moment for Democratic talking-point-providers and Trump-deniers, Wikileaks' leaked DNC emailsturned up an interesting factual confirmation of Trump's 'conspiracy theory' questions about Ted Cruz's father's background..."I will note that Cruz's father was in fact a militant who fought the Batista regime (which Fidel Castro defeated) and it would not be unusual for him to be caught up in the ugly web of Cuban militants with questionable histories."

Here is Luis Miranda - DNC Communications Director - reflecting on Trump's various conspiracies, confirming Cruz's father's connections...

While I will note that Cruz's father was in fact a militant who fought the Batista regime (which Fidel Castro defeated) and it would not be unusual for him to be caught up in the ugly web of Cuban militants with questionable histories (just look at the cabinet in the basement, one of the Watergate burglars was...Cuban)...

...with plenty of other examples including a guy who blew up a plane and was basically given safe refuge in Texas...

...not to mention those who were involved in the ugly Central American wars in the 80s... I think this is a fun hit.


Racist DNC Email Flagrantly Makes Fun Of Black Woman's Name

Democratic operatives made fun of a black woman’s name in an email chain recently leaked by the website Wikileaks.

An email with Scott Comer, the finance chief of staff and LGBT finance director for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Zachary Allen with the firm TIPAH Consulting, makes fun of LaQueenia Gibson’s name. Gibson is an executive assistant for the company Haddad Brands.

“LaQueenia is a NAME!” Allen wrote to Comer in May, 2016. “I’m sorry, boo. I hope you got a raise with this title.”

Allen is a Democratic campaign consultant who has been paid thousands of dollars by the DNC. A Federal Election Commission (FEC) report for 2015 shows Allen was paid $10,500 for “Fundraising Consulting” in September, 2015. The email was reported earlier on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s website.


BLM Protest Hillary At DNC: 'She's Killing Black People'

PHILADELPHIA — As Democrat delegates prepared to nominate Hillary Clinton as their nominee for president Tuesday, Black Lives Matter protesters marched through the streets of Philadelphia chanting: “Don’t vote for Hillary, she’s killing black people.”

“Hillary Clinton stole the election,” one protester told The Daily Caller News Foundation, referring to the Wikileaks release of Democratic National Committee emails showing they collaborated with Clinton to thwart Sen. Bernie Sanders. “The Wikileaks documents confirm what our suspicions were all along.”


Perdue Farms to Sponsor Fireworks at Wicomico County Fair & Highlight Strike Out Hunger Challenge

The Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce and the Wicomico Farm & Home Show Committee are pleased to announce that Perdue Farms will bring a fireworks display to the 2016 Wicomico County Fair through its sponsorship of the three-day event August 19-21 at Winterplace Park in Salisbury. The fireworks display is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. during Friday’s opening day of the fair.

The Wicomico County Fair also provides the venue for Perdue Farms to expand its reach in the fight against hunger in partnership with the Delmarva Shorebirds, Maryland Food Bank and the Fair through the “2016 Perdue Strike Out Hunger Challenge on Delmarva.” Fairgoers will have the opportunity to support the campaign by bringing non-perishable food items to the Maryland Food Bank tent, which will support the food bank mission to deliver meals to those in need in the community.

“We are honored to have Perdue Farms on board as a sponsor this year and the opportunity to participate in the Strike Out Hunger Challenge through this partnership,” said Zach Evans, Wicomico County Fair chairman. “This is yet another example of our community coming together; and to not only celebrate our culture on the Lower Shore, but also to bring attention to and help combat a real issue that folks are dealing with every day.”
“The Wicomico Farm and Home Show has a long tradition of celebrating the importance of agriculture on the Eastern Shore, and the 2016 Wicomico County Fair will provide a showcase to continue that tradition,” said Kim Nechay, Executive Director of the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation. “We’re thrilled to lend our support to the fair this year and bring fireworks to Friday’s opening night.”


Bernie Sanders remains a loser because the fix was in

PHILADELPHIA — If you are going to start a revolution, you probably want to finish it. Either win or die trying. That is why revolutions are always so bloody. Whatever you do, if you start a real movement and then try to sell it away, don’t be surprised if you lose control.

The problem with Bernie Sanders is that he has been a loser his entire political life. Sure, he has won a few elections. But in terms of vision and ideas, he has always been a failure.

During his quarter-century in Congress, Mr. Sanders has been viewed as something of a gadfly with Tourette’s syndrome. Always dressed like a homeless person shambling along the hallways, Democrats felt sorry for him and let him into their meetings. He looked like he needed a cup of coffee and free danishes.

Obviously, Mr. Sanders has very little to show for his decades toiling in Washington, except for a big bill overhauling the Veterans Affairs system a few years back. What a godsend that has been! Just ask any vets you know who need regular treatment from the VA.


Federal Workers Told They Can Stay Home During Heat Wave

Federal employees should stay home if they can’t handle the “dangerous” Washington, D.C., heat wave, Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Acting Director Beth Cobert told agencies in a recent letter.

“During days with severe heat and humidity, agencies are reminded of OPM’s workplace flexibilities that may be used to reduce health risks,” Cobert wrote to agency human resources directors Friday. “With supervisory approval and to prevent work disruptions, a telework-ready employee may telework from home on a day when air quality conditions are poor.”

Cobert also told agencies to remind employees to drink plenty of water, and said workers may request annual leave “when severe heat and humidity are threatening to the employee’s health and welfare.”

Taxpayers in the private sector who fund those bureaucrats’ salaries don’t typically enjoy the same flexibility.


Protester at DNC: 'The Clintons Have Been Doing Evil Deeds in Haiti for Years'

A group of protesters outside the Democrat Nation Convention railed against Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation for their long-reported history of using their global connections to exploit the poor people and the resources on the tiny Caribbean island of Haiti.

“We hope that [Clinton Cash] film gets spread around so more people are informed about what’s going on there,” the female protester told Breitbart News on Monday.

The protester said they “basically stole the money,” when asked if she had an issue with the Clinton Foundation.

“It never got to the masses,” she continued, “it never trickled down to the masses.”

“And the Clintons have been doing evil deeds in Haiti for years,” the protested said.


Troopers Seek Public’s Help Locating Robbery Subject

Presented by Public Information Officer Master Corporal Gary E. Fournier
Laurel - The Delaware State Police is asking the public’s assistance in attempting to locate a wanted subject who robbed a man on Woodland Ferry Road earlier this month.
The incident took place around 5:50 p.m. on Wednesday July 6, 2016 as a 22-year-old male had just exited the Five Points Liquor Store located at 30425 Seaford Road when he was approached by a black male who asked for a cigarette. The victim complied and gave him one and then proceeded to walk towards Woodland Ferry Road.  The suspect continued to follow the victim while talking on a cell phone and once again asked for another cigarette.  Again, the victim handed the man a cigarette and walked away.  Just prior to the little league park, the male suspect asked if he could have a dollar from the victim.  The victim then pulled his wallet from his pocket when the suspect snatched the wallet from his hands.  The victim then began fighting with the suspect before he fled back towards five points with the victim giving chase.  The victim last observed the suspect running toward the Ram Deli before he lost sight of him.  The victim was uninjured in this incident.
Through various tips and investigative means, Devontae L. Massey, 24 of Laurel, was identified as the suspect who committed this crime.  He is currently wanted for Robbery 2nd and Theft under $1,500.00, as well as Assault 3rd after an incident that occurred this morning, Wednesday July 27, 2016 around 4:00 a.m. at the Greenwood Inn (12036 Sussex Highway, Greenwood) when he assaulted a 29-year-old female in the parking lot and then fled prior to law enforcement arrival.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Devontae Massey, they are asked to contact Detective D. Cathell at 302-752-3793. Information may also be provided by calling Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333, via the internet, or by sending an anonymous tip by text to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword "DSP."

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake on Donald Trump: 'Shameful'

BALTIMORE —Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake fired back Tuesday, five days after Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump used Baltimore to try to make his case for president.

Rawlings-Blake used the microphone to slam Trump for what he said in his speech at the Republican National Convention last week.

Rawlings-Blake is in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention.

Trump's speech last week relied heavily on a theme of law and order and used crime rates in Baltimore and some other cities to argue Democrats have failed urban areas.

Clinton Cash: "Devastating" Documentary Reveals How Clintons Went From "Dead Broke" To Mega Wealthy

Clinton Cash, a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book, has been posted to YouTube for all to view free just in time for the DNC. Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors.

The New York Times hailed the book as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle" while MSNBCdescribed the documentary as devastating for the Hillary campaign.

The Clinton camp has, of course, dismissed the documentary as a right-wing smear campaign filled with unsubstantiated conspiracy theories. That said, perhaps the most shocking aspect of the release is that many of the biggest bombshells revealed in the documentary have been vetted and confirmed by various mainstream media outlets. More recently, some information uncovered in the Panama Papers has echoed some of Schweitzer’s allegations in the movie and book.

Just to highlight a few of the scandals detailed in the documentary:


Secret Leaked Emails Show EVERYTHING, Hillary Being Forced To Drop

WikiLeaks, a gigantic hacking company that works “for the people” has hacked the DNC and released upwards of 20,000 emails that contain some of the most unfathomable information you can imagine. Many suspect the government plots against the ‘little guy’ and tries to protect the ‘bigger’ candidate, and we now have physical proof of it.

In thousands of emails, we now know without a doubt that top officials at the Democratic National Committee have committed thousands of acts of fraud, they have lied, and they have rigged the election for Hillary Clinton. This is not a partisan issue, this is a major piece in this political puzzle.

The emails range from trying to accuse Bernie Sanders of being an atheist to openly mocking and criticizing Sanders during the primary race against Hillary Clinton. I’m telling you, Democrats are talking about a full on fight on the convention floor during their convention this week.


Even Bernie Sanders supporters want Hillary Clinton behind bars

Bernie Sanders supporters and Donald Trump fans have at least one thing in common – they want Hillary Clinton behind bars.

A group of disheartened Sanders backers chanted and waved signs outside an Info Wars sponsored van emblazoned with the slogan, “Hillary for Prison 2016,” according to Kayla Epstein of the Washington Post.


Video of Georgia mother beating teen daughter goes viral

SAVANNAH, GA (AP/WSAV) – Police in Georgia have turned over to child welfare authorities the case of a mother who took over her daughter’s Facebook page and streamed a live video of herself beating the teen.

The video shows the mother slapping and punching her daughter and berating her for posting provocative pictures online.

A later post that appears to be written by the mother says “I love my daughter with all my heart,” but she won’t “disrespect me.”

Savannah police say the daughter told them she feels safe in the home. They haven’t said if the mother will be charged, but they did say they referred the case to the state’s child welfare department.
