Sanctuary campus supporters okay with ignoring other laws too

Lawmaker: If Concealed Carriers Get Injured In Obama’s ‘GUN FREE ZONE’ They Can SUE!

Representative-elect Rick Schroer of Missouri is introducing legislation that will allow someone who has a gun and then was prevented from being armed by a given establishment to sue if something goes down and they could have prevented it had they been armed. Missouri is not the first state to do this. I think it is a good law. A business should be held accountable if they kept someone from defending others and they got hurt or killed. Missouri allows concealed carry without a permit.

The inspiration for the bill was the July 2012 Aurora, Colorado, movie theater attack. Moviegoers were not allowed to bring arms into the theater, but that didn’t stop a nut from coming in with a gun and killing them. It was a gun-free zone and the media didn’t address that issue at all. I have long said the best way to stop crime is to allow every American citizen to be armed. This is one more step in that direction and it’s a good one. Schroer said, “[The Aurora theater] almost put a target on the back of all the customers there that had to disarm themselves.”


Tissue warning! A miraculous moment caught on camera

NFL Legend Fran Tarkenton: Trump Boycotters Are Stupid. ‘Nobody Boycotted Obama ‘Cause He’s Black’

Fran Tarkenton is not only an NFL legend, he’s a HUGE fan of Donald Trump. TMZ caught up with him in New York and asked him about athletes who say they won’t go to the White House if invited because Donald Trump is now President. He bluntly called them stupid and disrespectful and I agree. Trump is the President now, have some respect and some integrity. We support our President. I don’t remember anyone pulling this when Barack Obama was elected. In fact, there was a waiting list to go to White House parties. Iman Shumpert is showing a total lack of class for saying he would not go. And I’m disappointed in Lebron James as well… he’s still on the fence about it. It should be a no-brainer.

Anytime a sitting President invites you to the White House, it is an honor. Even for those that are already famous in their own right. And frankly, sports figures have become too much a part of the news and political cycles. This goes to honoring the leader of your country that was selected by a majority of your fellow Americans. For eight long years, we suffered under the Marxist boot of Barack Obama. But we didn’t revolt and most showed deference to him as the President. Donald J. Trump deserves the same respect and all this boycotting is just moronic.


Black man accused of spray painting racist, pro-Trump graffiti hours after presidential election

The day after Republican Donald Trump was elected president, TheBlaze reported on vandalism in Philadelphia — spray-painted graffiti featuring swastikas, the Nazi salute “Sieg Heil,” as well as the phrases “Trump Rules” and “Black Bitch.”

Police arrested a New Jersey man in connection with one of the incidents.

William Tucker, 58, of Lawnside is accused of spray painting three vehicles — one with “Trump Rules” and “Black Bitch” — along with a house in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, reported.



Motion to Rename Columbus Day Fails to Pass

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– After weeks of controversy, the Baltimore City Council votes to strike down a bill that would rename Columbus Day.

Critics of the holiday say it honors a shameful historical figure and promise to keep fighting it in the future.

Those who supported the bill say they are not giving up. Saying they may have lost the battle but the name-war is just getting started.

Christopher Columbus, the Italian explorer with his own holiday and parade died hundreds of years ago, but the controversy over what he represents lives on.


Video Calls Replace In-Person Visits In Some Jails

Since her son Tommy went to jail, Dawn Herbert has been trying to see him as much as she can. He's incarcerated less than a 10-minute drive from her house in Keene, N.H. But he might as well be a lot farther.

"He's in that building and I can't get to him," Herbert says.

Dawn's visits probably don't look like what one might picture, where she's sitting across a table, or behind a pane of Plexiglas looking at and talking to her son.

No. When Herbert visits her son, she has to sit in a windowless booth just past the jail's front door, hold a phone to her ear, and wait for him to show up on a little screen.

ADHD and Schizophrenia: Similarities and Differences

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and schizophrenia are two different mental disorders.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition made up of behavioral symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. ADHD affects around 6.4 million children in the United States and often continues into adulthood.

ADHD is more common in boys than girls but is equal among men and women, which suggests girls may be under-diagnosed during childhood. ADHD symptoms usually begin before age 12.

Schizophrenia is a long-term mental health condition that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. Schizophrenia affects around 3.5 million individuals in the U.S.

Schizophrenia is slightly more common in males than females. Symptoms may begin between ages 16 and 30.

Although ADHD and schizophrenia have many differences, there is also an overlap in symptoms and some similarities between the two disorders.


Accused pizzeria gunman brought 3 guns from N.C. in ‘rescue’ attempt

WASHINGTON — A 28-year-old North Carolina man armed with an assault rifle who police say traveled to a popular D.C. pizzeria to “self-investigate” a fake news story about a child sex ring being run there by Hillary Clinton campaign operatives was ordered held without bond at his first court appearance Monday.

Edgar Maddison Welch, of Salisbury North Carolina, is accused of carrying an AR-15 assault rifle into the Comet Ping Pong at the corner of Connecticut and Nebraska avenues Sunday afternoon, pointing it at an employee and firing shots inside the restaurant. Employees and customers fled the restaurant and no one was injured, but the incident shut down parts of Connecticut Avenue and led to a heavy police response.

Welch has been charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and three other weapons-related charges. D.C. Magistrate Judge Joseph Beshouri ordered Welch held without bond during his court appearance Monday. Welch’s next court appearance is Thursday.


Father Of Student Arrested For Sexual Assault Says 'Lots Of Girls' Want His Son

“I was there, and I know what actually happened,” the alleged victim said.

A 15-year-old De La Salle High School student was arrested on Thursday for allegedly assaulting a teenage girl after a playoff football game. No charges have been filed, but USA Today reported that on Dec. 1 the accused student’s father insisted that the incident was consensual, because when “young, fast girls see something they like, they go after it.”

The junior varsity football player’s father, a registered sex offender himself, told local media that his son was innocent and that the victim, a student from neighboring Carondelet, gave her consent.

“He’s tall, dark and handsome, he plays for De La Salle, there’s a lot of girls that want to be with my son,” the 38-year-old father said in an interview with Bay Area News Group. “When young, fast girls see something they like, they go after it.”

This commentary, which suggests that an individual who is considered attractive or desirable is somehow exempt from the ability to assault another person, drastically differs from the alleged victim’s version of events.

Man gets 30 years in plot to attack U.S. Capitol, kill president

CINCINNATI — Christopher Lee Cornell was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday for hisunfulfilled terror plot to attack the U.S. Capitol and kill President Obama during the 2015 State of the Union address.

Cornell, 22, pleaded guilty in August to charges including attempted murder of government officials and trying to provide support to a terrorist organization.

Moments after the U.S. District Court in Cincinnati sentence, Cornell, of Green Township, said the courts are a "rigged a-- system" and that "Allah's in control, not the judge."

That, despite writing in a March 31, 2016, letter to his family: "I hope they can soon see the change in me, understand me, give me the help I need and allow me to get a second chance. I’m not a terrorist, a criminal or a bad person, I’m just a kid who suffered from problems, that made some bad decisions and stupid mistakes."

Cornell's plot to attack the Capitol was the product of a lonely and depressed 20-year-old with the mind of a teenager who was trying to impress an FBI informant, his attorneys said.

Cornell was easily influenced by the Islamic State propaganda and conspiracy theories he read online, they said.


Joint Statement from Queen Anne’s County Public Schools and Queen Anne’s County Sheriff’s Office

“Drug Scans”

Drug detection dog scans were performed today at Queen Anne’s County High School and Kent Island High School involving various Queen Anne’s County and allied law enforcement agencies. The Queen Anne’s County Public School system is dedicated to providing a safe and drug free environment for all students to succeed. Drug-sniffing dogs trained in the detection of narcotics and other illegal substances performed scans of the lockers in the hallways and the locker rooms, along with the parking lots located on school property. During the drug detection dog scans, students remained in their classrooms while instruction continued.

If any controlled dangerous substances are found, the student who is in possession of it will be brought to an administrative office and subjected to further questioning and search. Penalties will include suspension and the possibility of expulsion from school. Please understand that the goal with this initiative is not to 'catch kids,' but rather to send a powerful message that we will not accept the presence of drugs at Queen Anne’s County High School.
Our ultimate intent is to maintain the integrity of the educational process and to keep students safe. The disruptions and the dangers caused by drugs being present in our school are unacceptable. Our paramount concern is for the safety of our students. Searches are never on a set schedule and their date is never revealed to students in advance.

Trump Aide Epshteyn: 'Sad' to See Lawmakers Threaten Inauguration Boycott

A top member of Donald Trump's presidential inaugural committee says he can't understand why some lawmakers may boycott the president-elect's swearing in on Jan. 20th.

"It saddens me to a degree," Boris Epshteyn, the committee's communications director, said Friday to Steve Malzberg on "America Talks Live."

"We are uniting this country, we are bringing it together. It was a tough political campaign, no question about it, but the American people have spoken and I'm not quite sure what there is to protest.

"It's pretty rich for these Democrats who are crying about any comment Mr. Trump made about making sure this election was proper and had integrity. Now they're saying, what, they're somehow not agreeing to it? What's the protest?"


North Dakota pipeline protesters vow to stay despite victory

Protesters celebrated a major victory in their push to reroute the Dakota Access oil pipeline away from a tribal water source but pledged to remain camped on federal land in North Dakota anyway, despite Monday's government deadline to leave.

Hundreds of people at the Oceti Sakowin, or Seven Council Fires, encampment cheered and chanted "mni wichoni" — "water is life" in Lakota Sioux — after the Army Corps of Engineers refused Sunday to grant the company permission to extend the pipeline beneath a Missouri River reservoir.

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its supporters argue that extending the project beneath Lake Oahe would threaten the tribe's water source and cultural sites. The segment is the last major sticking point for the four-state, $3.8 billion project.


UPDATED: May Trial Date Now Set For White Marlin Open Prize Money Dispute

OCEAN CITY — A federal judge late last week approved a final scheduling order with an expedited start date for the trial in the suit involving the alleged rules violation in the 2016 White Marlin Open (WMO), assuring the proceedings will be concluded before the 2017 event.

Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Richard Bennett had before him a proposed scheduling order that included a start date no earlier than Sept. 18, 2017 for the trial in the federal suit aimed at resolving the alleged rules violation of the winner of the white marlin category in the 2016 WMO and the distribution of the $2.8 million in prize money. The proposed scheduling order included the September 2017 trial date, which would have left the case lingering over the 2017 WMO.

However, last Friday, Bennett issued an “etched in stone” scheduling order with a start date for the trial set for May 22, 2017. Essentially, the judge altered the scheduling order in part to ensure the legal proceedings would be resolved well before the 2017 WMO one way or the other. The trial has now been laid in for four days beginning May 22.


Eric Holder Leading Org. to Help Dems Get Back Control Through Redistricting

Former Attorney General Eric Holder will help Democrats reshape their party and gain more control as chairman of a new committee.

Holder said Monday he will lead the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, according to The Huffington Post.

The "unprecedented new effort . . . will set priorities for investing in races for governor, state legislative and other key down-ballot races," Holder said, per the Post.

"It's also a cause that President Obama hopes to embrace when he leaves office."

Holder served as attorney general from 2009-2015. The 65-year-old said Democrats "need a comprehensive approach" to all races, from school boards and other local positions all the way up.

Amazon Launched Cashier Free Convenience Store

No lines, no registers, no self-checkout machines

Amazon just unveiled a grocery store without lines or checkout counters. Amazon Go, a 1800-square-foot retail space located in the company’s hometown of Seattle, lets shoppers just grab the items they want and leave; the order gets charged to their Amazon account afterwards.

Amazon Go works by using computer vision and sensors to detect what items you’re taking out of the store. You start by scanning an app as you enter the Amazon Go shop. You do your normal shopping, and the sensors throughout the store identify the items in your cart and charge them to your account when you walk out the door. It’ll feel like shoplifting, except you’re actually being watched by more cameras than you can imagine.


Moment of truth for Muslim DNC chief candidate

Ellison makes anti-Semitic statements, lies about them, pays homage to jihad

The Democratic National Committee is having a big problem finding a new face to fill its critical vacancy as chairman in the wake of its loss of the presidency and its continued minority role in both houses of Congress in 2016.

U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first black Muslim ever to be elected to Congress, has emerged as the leading candidate, but has been entangled in a controversy over recent and older anti-Semitic public statements caught on recordings.

While the Anti-Defamation League had previously defended his candidacy, the recordings changed the minds of the leadership, which has since labeled them as “deeply disturbing and disqualifying” for the position.

To top it off, Ellison lied in writing to the ADL by telling the group his recorded statements were selectively edited and taken out of context.


OCDC Receives $215K In Grants For Development Projects

OCEAN CITY – The Ocean City Development Corporation (OCDC) received $215,000 in grants last week from the Maryland Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) to revitalize the downtown area south of 17th Street.

“The Community Legacy and Strategic Demolition Fund programs are two of the department’s most powerful programs for building healthier neighborhoods in Maryland,” DHCD Secretary Kenneth Holt said in a statement. “Whether it’s improving the facades on Maryland main streets, preserving historic buildings or removing blight, these projects will enhance neighborhoods across the state.”

The Community Legacy Program, a grant dedicated to filling the financial gaps in local government and community development projects, awarded the OCDC $50,000 for each of its three programs — Façade Improvement, Green Building Initiatives and Business Assistance.


Trump Gaining Dozens of Votes on Clinton in Wisconsin Recount

Trump Gaining Dozens of Votes on Clinton in Wisconsin Recount

President-elect Donald Trump has added dozens of votes to his lead over Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin after the conclusion of the fourth day of the state’s election recount.

The recount, pushed by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, shows that Trump has netted 39 more votes in the state as of Sunday night, according to a spreadsheet of votes contained on the Wisconsin Election Commission’s website. More than a millionvotes have been recounted.

The Wisconsin Election Commission notes that absentee ballots in the city of Milwaukee have not been recounted yet.


Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste

The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.

Pentagon leaders had requested the study to help make their enormous back-office bureaucracy more efficient and reinvest any savings in combat power. But after the project documented far more wasteful spending than expected, senior defense officials moved swiftly to kill it by discrediting and suppressing the results.

The report, issued in January 2015, identified “a clear path” for the Defense Department to save $125 billion over five years. The plan would not have required layoffs of civil servants or reductions in military personnel. Instead, it would have streamlined the bureaucracy through attrition and early retirements, curtailed high-priced contractors and made better use of information technology.

The study was produced last year by the Defense Business Board, a federal advisory panel of corporate executives, and consultants from McKinsey and Company. Based on reams of personnel and cost data, their report revealed for the first time that the Pentagon was spending almost a quarter of its $580 billion budget on overhead and core business operations such as accounting, human resources, logistics and property management.


Pearl Harbor Is a Fake News Story

Robert B. Stinnett, Day of Deceit: The Truth about FDR and Pearl Harbor (New York, Free Press, 2000)

Stinnett conclusively demonstrates with vast and incontrovertible documentary evidence that in order to precipitate an unwilling American public into supporting intervention in the Second World War, President Roosevelt oversaw the contrivance and deployment of a closely-guarded secret plot to goad the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor. The plan was set in motion in October 1940, and its development closely monitored through decoded intercepts of Japanese diplomatic and military radio communications. Knowledge of the plan was limited to 13 Roosevelt administration members and chief military officers, and 21 members of Naval Intelligence and related operations. Once it produced the intended result and the attack impended, the Pacific fleet’s modern naval vessels were sent to sea from Pearl Harbor, leaving seven antiquated World War One battleships as decoys. Meanwhile, the Japanese fleet was tracked with radio intercepts from its formation off the Kuril Islands on November 16, and its sailing for Hawaii on November 26; its course was cleared of all shipping with a Vacant Sea order on the 22nd; and Pearl Harbor naval patrols were ordered out of the area on the 25th. The intelligence of the impending attack was withheld from the officers (Admiral Kimmel and General Short) charged with defending Pearl Harbor, who were kept uninformed of the plan and intelligence of the impending attack, and scape-goated afterward. A coverup of the entire operation was maintained through eight official and Congressional investigations between 1941 and 1946, and down to Strom Thurmond’s inquiry in 1995. Stinnett’s forty-seven pages of Appendices (p. 261-308) present photographic reproductions of essential documents obtained from Federal archives through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as numerous other documents reproduced in the body of the text, and 65 pages (p. 309-374) of closely detailed and referenced notes, all of which copiously and conclusively document Stinnett’s factual assertions, arguments and conclusions. His voluminous research files and notes are deposited at the Hoover Institute library at Stanford.

Why Clintons Must Face Justice

These people are thieves and monsters, said Haitian aid worker Gary Heavin

The nation of Haiti could easily serve as the most visibly damning evidence of the most despicable type of self-enrichment and grand theft known as “disaster capitalism.”

Most people, especially in America, however, would never know it as the corporate controlled media has erected a wall of silence and censorship to protect the perpetrators of one of the greatest thefts of funds and cases of self-enrichment in world history.

The people of Haiti have been thrice victimized. First on January 12, 2010, when a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti about 15 miles west of Port-au-Prince, and secondly, when Hurricane Matthew delivered yet another devastating blow to the already severely wounded nation on October 4, 2016.


This Is An Incredible Deal

Last weekend I was walking through the Berlin WalMart. I happened to walk all the way to the back wall, (someplace I've never been) and when I started walking down the back isle I saw the above sale. These are LED Lamps, a 4-pack for $1.17 each. 

As you can tell from the above pictures, I bought them ALL, (75 boxes). Every shelf, every lamp. LED lamps are not cheap, yet they give incredible illumination while burning next to no energy. 

Once they restock you may want to purchase these lamps as I can assure you, you are not going to see this price again. They normally sell for $11.17 per pack.

Two Troopers Struck By DUI Driver In Charles Co. – 37 Troopers Struck This Year While Stopped

(WALDORF, MD) – Two Maryland state troopers at the scene of a traffic crash in Charles County last night were struck by an impaired driver passing the scene, bringing to 37 the number of troopers hit while on traffic stops, crash scenes, or in construction zones this year.

The driver is identified as Ruth A. Runyan, 75, of La Plata, Md. She was charged with driving under the influence, driving while impaired, negligent driving, failure to change lanes for an emergency vehicle, and failure to obey designated lane directions. An ambulance was called to the scene to evaluate her for any injuries, but she refused treatment.

The troopers are identified as Trooper First Class Thomas Davis and Trooper Matthew Milich, both of whom are assigned to the La Plata Barrack. Neither trooper was injured in the crash.

Shortly before 7:00 p.m. yesterday, both troopers were on the scene of a traffic crash on northbound Rt. 301, south of Smallwood Drive. The troopers had their marked patrol cars parked behind each other in the slow lane of Rt. 301, protecting the crash scene ahead of them. Both patrol cars had their emergency lights activated and traffic was being diverted to the lanes on the left of the scene.

Both troopers were seated in the same patrol car when a 2007 Mazda MX-5 northbound on Rt. 301 struck the unoccupied patrol car and then spun into the patrol car ahead of it, where the two troopers were seated. The first patrol car struck sustained disabling damage and the second sustained superficial damage.

Fundraiser for a Trump-Pence assassination uncovered on Dark Web

The Dark Web is a place that no normal person wants to visit, but that might be the problem here.

There is no way to really monitor the goings on of the dark web, which is why we don’t know about things like this until it’s too late.

As you are all well aware, the consequences of having Donald Trump and Mike Pence as the leaders of the free world is extremely dangerous,” the website reads. “The political, environmental and social consequences will change the United States for the worst.

Pointing to the “rise of several white supremacist movements like the KKK and the neo-nazis,” the site promoting assassination says “trying to eliminate other Americans of different origins cannot be tolerated.”

“We, as a society have come too far to go back to this,” it adds.

The site’s authors claim they are part of a “well-known organization that has always defended and protected the rights of all people against crooked governments and regimes using different cyber attacks.”

It says it now needs to go further, “as it will require much more than cyber attack to defend ourselves to avoid civil war or another world war.”

We have several assets in different branches of government, security and even some working in secret services,” it claims. “Unfortunately, the plan we need to implement requires a lot of money to pay for equipment, bribes and also to pay those assets.”

The site asks for anonymous donations from those who “wish to see our plan succeed” and asks those with “expertise, intelligence or contacts you consider relevant,” to get in touch.

Is TV Sports Getting So Expensive That Customers Are Finally Cutting The Cord?

At this point, it’s a hoary old saw that sports networks and broadcasts of live sporting events are one of the main reasons your pay-TV bills continue to rise. We all kind of “know” that sports are expensive, and that the costs come through to everyone else… but as millions of dollars in charges and fees become billions, are consumers and viewers going to stick around?

That’s what the Los Angeles Times is asking today, after a look at the best-available numbers.

Since 2005 — so, in just over a decade — the amount of available sports programming across broadcast and cable networks has gone up 160%, to more than 127,000 hours per year, the L.A. Times reports. And people are watching what’s on offer: we collectively spent 31 billion hours watching sports on TV last year, a 40% increase over the last decade.


Conservatives Demand Action Against Foreign-Funded Efforts to Cast Doubt on Election Outcome

A bevy of top conservatives is demanding action against foreign influencers who allegedly aim to hurt Republican President-elect Donald J. Trump in the wake of his landslide electoral victory in the 2016 presidential election.

A group of 39 conservative leaders wrote an open letter made public on Monday night.

he top conservatives describe a “pernicious effort” by the institutional left to cast doubt on the results of the election, when it’s clear Trump won in a landslide over Clinton. In fact, his 306 electoral votes—and complete sweep of the Rust Belt from Pennsylvania to Ohio to Michigan to Wisconsin—is something no Republican has done since the 1980s. They also say data supports Trump’s recent points that many illegal votes were likely cast in this election, which he argues means that he would also have won the popular national vote.

They specifically point to credible analyses from previous elections that suggest illegal voting is a major factor in U.S. elections.

“Political scientists examining the 2008 presidential election estimated that 1.2 million non-citizens cast mainly Democratic votes,” they wrote. After eight years of rampant illegal immigration, it is only reasonable to expect that number to have increased.”

Secondly, they rightly point out that the popular vote technically has no constitutional bearing on who becomes president.

“Several U.S. presidents have come to office in Electoral College victories without winning the popular vote,” they write. “In the cases of Presidents Woodrow Wilson (1912) and Bill Clinton (1992), their presidential opponents together won popular vote victories over these Electoral College winners.”


Boss Writes The Most Politically INCORRECT layoff letter EVER and We LOVE It!!

AUDIO: Homeowner Opens Fire, Killing Home Invasion Suspect During 911 Call

On Monday, a Sunrise, Florida, homeowner used a shotgun to open fire on three home invasion suspects, killing one and causing the remaining two to flee the scene.

According to ABC News, homeowner Warren Darlow called 911 to report that three males had pulled into his driveway and were walking toward his home. He did not know them and worried that their intention was to rob the residence.

Darlow talked to the police dispatcher, saying, “I got three black males at my house. Two jumped out. They’re getting ready to jump the fence.” He continued talking to the dispatcher until the three suspects allegedly shattered a glass door on the back the home, at which point, Darlow whispered, “Help. They’re in my house right now.”

The next sound on the dispatch audio is of Darlow firing three blasts from a shotgun:


Trump Taps Ben Carson As HUD Nominee

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen former Johns Hopkins surgeon and campaign 2016 rival Ben Carson to become secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Trump's decision, announced early Monday by his transition office, comes as the real estate mogul continues a series of interviews, meetings with aides and other deliberations aimed at forming his administration.

In a statement, Trump says he's "thrilled to nominate" Carson, saying he "has a brilliant mind and is passionate about strengthening communities and families within those communities."

Carson has been coy about joining the new administration, saying shortly after Trump's election victory that he wasn't certain he'd fit into a Cabinet-style role. The discussion at that time centered on speculation that Carson might be selected to head the sprawling Department of Health and Human Services.

Homeowner Takes Gun from Home Invasion Suspect, Kills Him with It

A homeowner wrestled a gun away from two home invasion suspects then opened fire with it, killing one suspect and causing the second to flee.

The incident occurred in Culpepper County, Virginia.

According to NBC 4, authorities with the Culpepper County Sheriff’s Department say “21-year-old Delonte Jones, of Prince George’s County, and 18-year-old Amber Eley, of Orange, Virginia, knocked on the door of a home in the 1400 block of Woodland Church Road.” When the homeowner answered the door, Jones and Eley feigned car trouble and asked for help. The homeowner sensed something was not right and refused. That is when Jones and Eley allegedly forced their way into the home.

Once inside a struggle ensued and the homeowner allegedly took a gun away from Jones and shot the suspect with it, killing him. Law enforcement officers who arrived on scene were not able to locate any other suspects.

Neighbors told NBC 4 they heard “multiple shots.”


WACC Is Back: Getting Ready To Live In An Era Of Rising Rates

When I was fresh out of college in the mid-90s, I landed a job at Merrill Lynch. I was an "investment banking analyst", which meant I had no life outside of the office and hardly ever slept. I pretty much spoke, thought, and dreamed in Excel during those years.

Much of my time there was spent building valuation models. These complicated spreadsheets were used to provide an air of quantitative validation to the answers the senior bankers otherwise pulled out of their derrieres to questions like: Is the market under- or over-valuing this company? Can we defend the acquisition price we're recommending for this M&A deal? What should we price this IPO at?

Back then, Wall Street still (mostly) believed that fundamentals mattered. And one of the most widely-accepted methods for fundamentally valuing a company is the Discounted Cash Flow (or "DCF") method. I built a *lot* of DCF models back in those days.

I promise not to get too wonky here, but in a nutshell, the DCF approach projects out the future cash flows a company is expected to generate given its growth prospects, profit margins, capital expenditures, etc. And because a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow, it discounts the further-out projected cash flows more than the nearer-in ones. Add everything up, and the total you get is your answer to what the fair market value of the company is.
The Weighted Average Cost Of Capital

The DCF approach sounds pretty straightforward. And it is. But it's still much more of an art than a science. Your future cash flow stream is entirely dependent on the assumptions you bake into the model. The difference between a 5% or 15% assumed EBITDA compound annual growth rate becomes huge when projecing over 10+ years.

But one assumption in the model has far more impact on the final valuation number than any other. And it has nothing to do with the company's projected operations.

Recall that the DCF approach projects out the expected future cash flows, and then discounts them (back to what's called a "present value"). This raises a critically important question:

At what rate do you discount these future cash flows?

A Viewer Writes: Something is going on in Somerset County

They just called for 2 ambulances from Wicomico County (Fruitland and Allen) I heard someone say they had 3 kids down and to notify PRMC. Everyone sounds frantic but I ccouldn't tell what was going on. Keep an ear out.

They just asked Fruitland and Allen to EXPEDITE. The paramedic on scene is adamant about telling them to expedite so something is going on.
The first paramedic was setting up triage. Priority 1 patients. (most critical) Now it sounds like they are going to be transporting 2 patients.

Wicomico Central just asked if Allen and Fruitland were aware of what was going on. They said they were not aware of what is going on Central told the paramedics to contact Central by phone. They are NOT releasing anything over the air.

I just hope it is not another incident like the one in Princess Anne with the kids and the kerosene heater.

Cop-Killer Dead After Grueling Standoff. Those Ready to Blame Police Should Hear This Witness First.

On Wednesday night, a domestic violence call in Tacoma, Washington, ended in tragedy.

As KIRO7 reports, the situation — which began at approximately 5:30 Wednesday afternoon — quickly turned dire after the male suspect, Bruce “Zeus” Johnson, opened fire on Tacoma Police Officer Reginald Jake Gutierrez soon after he'd stepped inside.

In the 11-hour standoff that followed, other officers braved Johnson's gunfire to pull the injured Gutierrez out of the home to safety, but the 45-year-old would sadly succumbed to his wounds just hours later.

Over those 11 hours, Johnson reportedly used two children — ages 8 and 11 — as human shields to protect himself, though they both ultimately emerged unharmed.

After negotiations failed, the standoff only came to an end when a police sniper shot Johnson in the head.

Nancy Pelosi: I Don't Think Democrats 'Want A New Direction'

Sunday on CBS’s “Face The Nation,” when asked about the direction of the Democratic Party, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) downplayed the possibility of a new direction.

Partial transcript as follows:

DICKERSON: The Democratic party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the house. What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and what are you going to do differently?

PELOSI: I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. that’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.
