Salisbury Folk Festival An Obvious Flop, AGAIN

These images taken yesterday at 3 PM clearly prove, (once again) that no one is really interested in this ridiculous Folk Festival in Salisbury. I cracked up this morning watching WBOC showing footage of the event claiming large crowds were flocking to the event, yet every video image showed next to no one there. Power of suggestion???

Pictures Don't LIE But Salisbury Mayor Jake Day Does

Folk Festival - Saturday evening 9/7/19

Your local media wants you to believe this was a record event for Salisbury. Hey, who knows, maybe they're telling the truth compared to last year. Nevertheless, don't buy the BS the event was such a great success. I read this morning they raised an ESTIMATED $40,000.00 in the bucket brigade. What's wrong with these Liberals, they can't add?

Just curious of people’s opinions if this is a bit extreme just for 1 student? Is this the tail wagging the dog? Is it fair to all the other students in the class that they can’t have Fritos or Cheetos in their lunch now for the whole year or that they can’t trade their Oreo cookies for a Ding Dong at lunchtime? I understand about safety but come on! Just curious of what the readers think...

I'm just curious why Jake Day gets to put his campaign signs up on City property at the Salisbury City Park and across the street on at a vacant house. You can see 2 of his signs on the Snow Hill Rd. side of the park and 2 across the street. Is he that full of himself that he thinks he is above the law?

Name That Tune.....

The Real Deal about Salisbury's Population Growth

Jake keeps bragging that Salisbury is the fastest growing city in Maryland, which is probably true. What he is not telling us is that our population growth rate has been decreasing over the years. Our population growth rate from 2010-2018 is 7.5%; from the years 2000-2010 our population growth was 29%.
The population growth has slowed.

Salisbury, MD

2000 Population - 21,500
2010 Population - 30,343
2018 Population is Approximately - 32,800

Between 2000-2010 we were adding an average of 884 people per year.

Between 2010-2018 we are pacing/adding 307 people per year.

*Since our populations median age is growing younger, we have to assume we are having more babies to add to our population. People are certainly not running here because of our growing economy and high paying jobs. But, who are the people that are moving here?

A Viewer Writes.......... WCBOE: elementary school spelling and reading.

Pardon me but I have a children that attend Wicomico County schools. 3 in Pittsville Middle School. And I have my youngest 2 enrolled in to Prince St Elementary School.  Above is a letter sent home from the school advising that county wide spelling would no longer be apart of the homework and curriculum and they would no longer be graded on.  However they will send home "words of the week" that are completely optional and expressed that they will not be graded on such words. Now the homework assignment for my 1st grader is to read 20 minutes a night which for any father of a little girl that has the chance should be a highlight of their day. And to color the assigned day to show they completed the assignment. 

My question(s) are as parents of these students and the amount of money going into our school system. Why are we allowing them to no longer teach/require our students to know the basic necessities in life. Reading and spelling go hand in hand through phonics and context clues is how we all were taught. Why aren't our children being given the basic needs we are sending them to school for. Illiteracy is always suppose to be a big deal in our area and now we have elected to require them to spell basic words. At what point do citizens of this county say hold up to much money spent infrastructure and salaries that we have allowed them to longer teach spelling. And at what meeting did the county get parents involved into that decision making process.

O’Rourke to gun owners: 'Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47'

Beto O’Rourke, a fierce advocate of gun control, was cheered for saying that if he is elected president, he would take action to remove weapons from gun owners in America.

While some candidates have suggested voluntary buybacks for owners of those types of guns, O’Rourke, 46, has gone further and voiced his support for mandatory gun buybacks for owners of AR-15s and AK-47s. During Thursday’s debate, O’Rourke was asked if he was proposing taking away those guns and responded, “I am, if it’s a weapon that was designed to kill people on a battlefield.

“If the high-impact, high-velocity round when it hits your body shreds everything inside of your body because it was designed to do that … Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47, we’re not going to allow it to be used on fellow Americans anymore,” the former Texas congressman said as the audience broke into raucous cheering.


Beto O'Rourke: 'I don't see the policemen going door to door' with my mandatory gun buyback plan

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a White House presidential contender, confirmed Saturday at the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention that his mandatory firearm buyback plan would not include law enforcement door knocks.

“No. I don't see the law enforcement going door to door. I see Americans complying with the law. I see us working with gun owners, non-gun owners, local, county, state, federal law enforcement to come up with the best possible solution. I have yet to meet an owner of an AR-15 who thinks it's OK that we have these kind of mass killings in this country,” O’Rourke said when asked by the Washington Examiner about specifics of his plan.

When pressed further about how he plans to enforce his proposal for those who would not comply, he responded, “How do you — how do we enforce any law? There's a significant reliance on people complying with the law. You know that a law is not created in a vacuum."



New York City Mayor, and not so popular Democrat Primary Presidential Candidate, Bill de Blasio wants to require you to have a bicycle license as well as a helmet to legally ride a bike and promises to regulate cyclists with stricter law enforcement.

De Blasio and “progressive” allies have pushed New York city towards redesigning their transportation away from fossil fuel-powered motor vehicles to “formalize and codify a hierarchy of street use that prioritizes pedestrians and cyclists over private cars [BikeNYC2020].”

However, the nearly 100 miles of dedicated lanes for cyclists have generated a spike in collisions involving cyclists and pedestrians as well as motorists.

It's Time to Re-Segregate College Sports?

Sports writer and commentator Jemele Hill has long been more interested in peddling leftist race bait than, you know, commenting on sports. For years and in multiple instances, Hill has made controversial remarks mixing race and politics with sports. But because Hill is black, people like Joe Biden say she can’t be racist.

Nevertheless, writing her first article for The Atlantic, Hill argues for segregation at the nation’s colleges and universities.

It’s Time for Black Athletes to Leave White Colleges,” reads her title. She argues this re-segregation should happen because “black athletes have attracted money and attention to the predominantly white universities that showcase them.” Instead, she says, they should redirect their talents to historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

She’s not entirely wrong about some of the disparity among blacks and whites, or about how colleges rake in major profits from unpaid athletes. And in one sense her argument is thoroughly American — she advocates for the underdog to prevail against the giant.

Police: Couple spends more than $100,000 after bank accidentally deposits money in account

A couple in Pennsylvania is facing felony theft charges after spending money that didn't belong to them.

WNEP reports Robert and Tiffany Williams' bank deposited $120,000 into their account on accident.

It was a mistake made back in May by a teller, the news agency reports.

The couple did not contact the bank about the mistake but allegedly spent most of the money in two and a half weeks in June.

Authorities say the couple bought a car trailer, a camper, two four-wheelers and an SUV. They also used some of the money on bills, cash purchases and gave $15,000 to friends in need.

Trump says he won't debate primary opponents

President Trump on Monday indicated he would not be willing to debate the Republicans seeking to run against him in a primary for the party’s 2020 nomination.

“They’re all at less than 1 percent. I guess it’s a publicity stunt,” Trump told reporters as he left the White House for North Carolina.

“To be honest, I’m not looking to give them any credibility,” he added.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (Ill.), former Rep. Mark Sanford (S.C.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld have each announced campaigns against Trump.

The Arizona Republican Party earlier Monday canceled its 2020 presidential primary contest, joining the GOP in South Carolina and Kansas. Nevada may follow suit as the Republican Party seeks to clear Trump's path to reelection.


Chicken 'causes cancer': Oxford University scientists say people who eat poultry are at increased risk of developing deadly disease

Eating chicken puts consumers at a higher risk of a rare form of blood cancer, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, as well as prostate cancer in men, according to researchers from Oxford University.

The research involved tracking 475,000 middle-aged Britons over a period of eight years between 2006 and 2014.

Their diets were analysed alongside the diseases and illnesses they suffered with.

Around 23,000 of them developed cancer.

'Poultry intake was positively associated with risk for malignant melanoma, prostate cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma', according to the paper published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.

SU Students Have Something To Say About It!

Alarming Number Of Seniors Go Entire Week Without Talking To Anyone

For most of us, the older we get, the more we slow down physically. But for some, growing old also means slowing down socially — so much to the point that some home-bodied seniors go days with little to no human interaction. A new survey of British elders sheds light on this sad, but true effect of aging, noting that hundreds of thousands of people often go a week without speaking to a single person.

According to the survey of 1,896 seniors over 65 in the United Kingdom, more than one in five (22%) will have a conversation with no more than just three people over the span of an entire week! That translates to nearly 2.6 million elderly folks who don’t enjoy regular human contact on a daily basis. Perhaps most alarming though is researchers say an alarming 225,000 individuals will go a week without talking to anyone face-to-face.

“A friendly ‘hello’ or ‘how are you?’ is something most of us take for granted – it’s just part of every day life, but these latest figures show that hundreds of thousands of older people in the UK will spend today and the rest of this week alone, with no one to share even a few simple words with,” says Caroline Abrahams, charity director at Age UK, which partnered with Cadbury Dairy Milk to commission the research, in a statement.


Conservative Activist Returns to Baltimore for Second Trash Cleanup

A conservative activist and several volunteers picked up trash for the second time this year on Monday in Baltimore, Maryland.

Scott Presler, a Trump supporter and grassroots activist, said his efforts are not about pointing fingers but are meant to help average Americans clean up their beloved city.

“This is not about President Trump. This is not about (being) anti-Representative Cummings. This is about we see a problem, and these are our American people. These are our brothers and sisters,” he told CBS Baltimore.

The group picked up seven tons of trash during the event Monday, and Presler said in a video posted to Twitter that he and his fellow volunteers will be back again in October:

Teachers Reveal How Much They're Spending In Classrooms

Due to a lack of resources, teachers across America say they are dipping into their personal funds in order to supply their own classroom needs.

While some are reaching straight into their pockets, others crowdfund in hopes to fulfill these back-to-school necessities.

Courtney Jones, a Texas-based elementary educator, launched a successful hashtag: #clearthelist -- a pay it forward initiative which asks the public via social media to help meets simple demands of teachers across the nation.

The movement raised over $85,000 for teachers in need of supplies. It came in the midst of the #RedforEd movement's launch -- where thousands of educators marched at state capitols to demand pay increases and better education funding since 2018.


'Impossible to live together': Todd Palin files for divorce from Sarah

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's husband Todd Palin has filed for divorce in Anchorage Superior Court.

Citing "incompatibility of temperament between the parties such that they find it impossible to live together as husband and wife," the court document, filed on Friday, uses initials instead of full names, but lists the date of the Palin marriage and the birth date of their child, Trig, 11, who had Down Syndrome, for whom they filed joint custody.

Anchorage attorney Kimberloo Colbo is representing Todd, 55, and has asked the court to keep the case confidential. As well as Trig, the couple has four adult children, Track, 30, Bristol, 28, Willow, 25, and Piper, 18.

Sarah Palin, also 55, rose to prominence during the 2008 presidential election, when the former mayor of Wasilla was chosen by John McCain as his vice presidential candidate, a decision for which the Arizona senator expressed regret last year. The photogenic couple - he was known in Alaska as the "First Dude" and was a champion snowmobile racer - were an immediate media sensation.

Maryland offers tax credit to help those struggling with student debt

Marylanders struggling with student debt have a week left to get some help with their loans from the state.

Applications for the Maryland Student Loan Debt Relief Tax Credit are due on Sept. 15.

Maryland comptroller Peter Franchot said the credit is open to any Maryland resident with at least $5,000 left to pay on their student loan debt.

“Fundamentally, it’s free money totaling $5,000 over a couple years that can be applied to someone’s student debt,” Franchot said. “It’s not curative because … people just have a lot of student debt, unfortunately. But it’s a positive contribution from the state of Maryland.”

Chris Coons to Beto O'Rourke: You are so not helping

Sen. Chris Coons, a Democrat from Delaware, must be hopping mad that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is calling for the forced, mandatory confiscation of all AR-15 and AR-15-style rifles.

Just think of the years of care and effort that gun control activists such as Coons have put into trying to convince voters that no one is coming for their guns. All that careful wording and rhetorical finesse, just poof! Up in smoke, because a former Texas congressman has aspirations for the presidency.

It's not easy watching all your hard work get destroyed by someone else's publicity stunt.


6.2 Million Americans Drop off Food Stamps Under Trump — Saving the Country $9 Billion Annually

At least 6.2 million Americans have dropped off food stamps since President Trump came into office in January 2017.

The average monthly benefit for SNAP food stamp recipients is $121 per person. With 6.2 million off of food stamps President Trump saved the country $9 billion annually.

“The average monthly benefit for SNAP fod stamp recipients is $121 per person. With 6.2 million off of food stamps President Trump saved the country 750,000,000 annually.”
$121 per person/mo. X 6.2Million = $750,200,000/mo.

$750,200,000 x 12/months = $9,002,400,000/yr.

Baltimore On Track For Record Homicides As City Descends Into Chaos

So here we go again, another depressing story from Baltimore City, a region that is imploding on itself and suffering from a murders crisis, opioid epidemic, a wide gap in wealth/health/education inequalities, and deindustrialization.

In this report, we're only going to focus on the murder crisis and gently touch on the opioid epidemic (because they go hand in hand), however, please search our archives for other stories on Baltimore, because the implosion there is what will be coming to many other inner cities across the country in the 2020s.

With that being said, Baltimore City could be on track to surpass last year's 309 homicides, and if current trends persist, there is a chance that homicides could hit a record high, which means the city could see 342, a level that was previously set in 2015 and 2017.

10 Sounds We Hate Most

Scientists have discovered why unpleasant sounds trigger a negative response. When we hear unpleasant sounds such as a fork scraping a plate or nails against a chalkboard, the auditory cortex of the brain and an area of the brain called the amygdala interact to produce a negative response. The auditory cortex processes sound, while the amygdala is responsible for processing emotions such as fear, anger, and pleasure. When we hear an unpleasant sound, the amygdala heightens our perception of the sound. This heightened perception is deemed distressing and memories are formed associating the sound with unpleasantness.


What sounds do you hate??

Teens are anxious and depressed after three hours a day on social media

A study published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Psychiatry suggests that teenagers who spend more than three hours a day on social media are more likely to develop mental health problems including depression, anxiety, aggression, and antisocial behavior.

The study: Nearly 6,600 12- to 15-year-old Americans self-reported how much time they spent per day on social media, as well as whether they had any mental health problems. The researchers found that three hours of social media correlated with higher rates of mental health issues, even after adjusting for a history of such problems.

How teens absorb social media: The effects of social-media consumption on teens manifest in two main ways, according to the study’s authors: internally (depression and anxiety, for example) and externally (aggressive behavior or antisocial behavior). The latter were essentially nonexistent among teens who reported that they didn’t use social media.

But this is old news ... right?

Report: California Agent Changes Story on Loretta Lynch Seeking Probe into Planned Parenthood Journalists

The California Department of Justice special agent who testified Tuesday that Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch wrote to former state Attorney General Kamala Harris to request an investigation into the Planned Parenthood video journalists changed his story, reported LifeSiteNews.

The pro-life media outlet reported that Special Agent Brian Cardwell changed his story Thursday regarding the letter that sparked the criminal investigation of David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP). The undercover journalists produced a series of videos exposing the fetal tissue trafficking practices of Planned Parenthood and its partners in the biomedical procurement industry.

LifeSiteNews reported on the preliminary hearing in the criminal case against the journalists:



Right after Apple announced the iPhone 11, numerous owners of older iPhones began to report device malfunctions reminiscent of a 2017 debacle in which the company admitted slowing the performance of older phones – ‘officially’ in order to extend their battery life.

At the time, Apple said in a statement that it had “never – and wound never – do anything to intentionally shorten the life of any Apple product.”

According to USA Today, however, the coincidences are piling up.


Police: Thousands of fetal remains found in home of former South Bend abortion doctor

Officials say 2,246 fetal remains were found in the home of a doctor who used to perform abortions in South Bend until his license was suspended in 2015.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who has a home in Will County, Illinois, passed away on September 3.

Klopfer used to practice out of Women's Pavilion in South Bend. The state of Indiana suspended Klopfer's medical license in 2015 for failing to exercise reasonable care and violating several notice and documentation requirements. He was accused of failing to report an abortion preformed on a 13-year-old.


China to lift punitive tariffs on U.S. soybeans and pork before new round of talks to curb a bruising trade war

China will exempt some agricultural products from additional tariffs on U.S. goods, including soybeans and pork, in the latest sign of easing tensions before a new rounds of talks aimed at curbing a bruising trade war.

The United States and China have both made conciliatory gestures, with China renewing purchases of U.S. farm goods and U.S. President Donald Trump delaying a tariff increase on certain Chinese goods.

A state news agency said Friday that China will now lift punitive tariffs imposed on U.S. soybeans and pork.

The Xinhua News Agency, citing unidentified official sources, said soybeans, pork and some other farm goods will be exempt from tariff hikes.


PIERS MORGAN: Biden’s going to be Democrat nominee – which means Trump will be facing off against a rambling, weird, gaffe-prone, senile-looking 78-year-old.

Donald Trump won the Democratic debate last night.

He wasn’t actually there, obviously.

But he’ll have been sitting in his private quarters at the White House chuckling at what he was watching.

In fact, he was enjoying it so much he didn’t even bother tweeting his usual real-time derision. Perhaps he felt the candidates were damaging themselves enough without needing any help from him?

For the cold, harsh reality is that right now, none of these Democrat contenders look anywhere near like beating Trump in 2020.

Illinois Supreme Court selects chief justice married to indicted Chicago Alderman at center of huge federal probe into political corruption

There is jaw-dropping indifference to the appearance of corruption in Springfield, Illinois. It's hard to figure out what was on the minds of the justices of the Illinois Supreme Court when they chose Anne Burke to be chief justice for the next three years. Illinois voters elect their supreme court justices to ten-year terms on partisan ballots. Once elected, justices face a yes-or-no vote every ten years, so maybe they feel so secure in their state's deep blue status that they can flaunt the appearance of corruption with no consequences. But for anyone concerned about the legitimacy the court enjoys in the public mind, it is an odd choice of leadership. Illinois Policy explains why:
As Chicago's longest serving alderman faces prison time, his spouse will become the state's most powerful judge.

The state's high court justices on Sept. 10 elected Justice Anne Burke to chief justice of the Illinois Supreme Court, succeeding former Chief Justice Lloyd A. Karmeier. (snip)

Burke's rise to chief justice comes while her husband, 14th Ward Ald. Ed Burke, faces a 14-count indictment on federal corruption charges. In January, federal prosecutors accused the alderman of attempting to extort the owners of a Burger King franchise in his ward by withholding a remodeling permit in order to pressure them to hire his private law firm to handle their property tax

MSP: ECI Inmate Death Under Investigation

(Westover, MD) – Maryland State Police investigators are continuing an investigation into the death of a state prison inmate in Somerset County.

The inmate is identified as Alexander Denver Christopher, 32. Christopher was a state prison inmate serving time at the Eastern Correctional Institution in Princess Anne, Maryland. State Police Homicide Unit investigators are awaiting results of an autopsy being conducted at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for the cause and manner of death.

Last night around midnight, the Maryland State Police Homicide Unit received a phone call from the Eastern Correctional Institution in reference to an inmate death. Investigators told State Police two men were transported to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, one of which was Christopher who was pronounced deceased my medical personnel at the hospital.

State Police Homicide Unit investigators are continuing the investigation begun by the DPSCS IIU. Assistance has been provided by State Police crime scene technicians and investigators from the State Police Criminal Enforcement Division. Upon completion, the investigation will be presented to the Somerset County State’s Attorney’s Office for review.

SILENAS: Democrats Are Talking About Climate Change — But It Seems Like They Just Want To Raise Taxes

Democratic presidential candidates took the stage once again Thursday night, this time in Houston, Texas.

Observers noted that not a single question on the economy was asked, though climate change remained a subject of discussion. Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised to cut CO2 emissions by 70 percent. Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke said he’d cut emissions by 100 percent.

The continued focus on climate change on the heels of CNN’s seven-hour “climate crisis” marathon is a bit of a shame. The truth is we’ve known for some time where most Democrats stand on the issue. Months ago Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her “Green New Deal.” Then Sen. Bernie Sanders announced a similar Green New Deal. Not to be outdone, Sen. Kamala Harris announced her own $10 trillion version.


Goodwin: Trump the real winner as Biden again proves he’s not cut out to be nominee

And the winner is … Donald Trump.

The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable.

Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he can’t manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself.

Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a random thought popped into his head and out his mouth. None of his rivals needed to interrupt him — he did it to himself.



Mass shootings are unconscionable acts of violence and are the most acutely disturbing form of gun violence. In the wake of such tragedies, many gun control advocates lambast gun rights supporters for allowing “weapons of war” onto the streets of America and not supporting “responsible gun reform.”

The measures put forth are usually either a ban and/or mandatory buyback of “assault weapons,” most of which are more accurately known as semi-automatic rifles. (“Assault weapon” is a vague term that varies state to state and can include common pistols and shotguns depending out other attachable accessories.)

While these initiatives are “common sense” to advocates, if one takes the time to examine the data and evidence, it becomes abundantly clear that gun control in this form will do little to reduce gun violence.


Kunstler Exposes "Tectonic Rumblings" In America's Political Memory Hole

The memory hole that appeared in America’s zeitgeist around 2016 is expanding like some evil cosmic rot. Things happen and then things unhappen and after a while it’s like they never happened. For instance, little seems to have happened all summer long with the matter known as RussiaGate, the attempt by high US government officials to overthrow the result of the 2016 election by pretending that Russia was trying to interfere in the 2016 election.

Quite a confection of lies and subterfuge. It apparently grew out of an effort at the highest levels of the Obama administration well before 2016 to run so-called intel operations against the perceived enemies of Mr. Obama’s foreign policy. One target was General Michael Flynn, who until 2014 had headed the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is devoted to military intel analysis. General Flynn was known to be unfavorably disposed to Mr. Obama’s deal to pay billions to Iran for a halt in that country’s nuclear weapons program.

After retiring, General Flynn set up his own intel consulting company, which had two clients in Russia: a short-hop airline and a cyber-security firm owned by a holding company in Britain. In late 2015, General Flynn attended a Moscow dinner for Russia Today (RT) where he sat next to Vladimir Putin and gave a speech for which he was paid $45,000. Note: at that point, General Flynn was a private citizen and we were not at war with Russia. It was one of many European nations that Americans were allowed to do business in.

Joe Biden is no spring chicken. In fact, he’s not even a late-fall chicken.

Biden, at 76, is old, realllllly old. He falls asleep at events, can hardly utter a sentence without misspeaking, and sometimes his eyeball just fills up with blood.

While still the front runner in all the polls, Biden is no longer inevitable. And some prominent backs of the past have begun to bail.

Take Rolling Stone magazine, the cultural icon for decades. They’re now saying no to Joe.

“Why It’s Time for Joe to Go,” says a headline of a piece posted Friday, with a subhead that read: “Democrats need an antiracist nominee to run against a racist like Donald Trump. The third debate confirmed Biden isn’t up to the task.”


Air Force deal to refuel near Trump’s Scottish resort reportedly signed under Obama

The controversial arrangement by the U.S. Air Force to refuel at a Scottish airport near President Trump’s Turnberry golf resort apparently was signed under the Obama administration, according to multiple reports.

The details emerged as the Air Force was called to explain a March stopover in the Scottish resort -- with Democrats on the House Oversight Committee writing to Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan as part of their investigation into alleged conflicts of interest by the president. The twist revealing that the airport deal predates his administration could boost Trump's case.

Politico, which was among the outlets to publish stories this week examining the relationship between the Air Force and the resort, reported that the Air Force crews stayed at Trump’s Scottish resort up to 40 times since 2015.


Feds investigating current and former UAW union bosses for yearslong embezzlement scheme

Current and former top officials of the United Auto Workers union are implicated in a federal investigation into criminal activities involving a yearslong scheme to embezzle members' dues payments.

UAW President Gary Jones and former union President Dennis Williams are two of four unnamed senior union officials found complicit in an embezzlement and money laundering scheme that involved roughly $1 million-worth of illicit transactions, sources told the Detroit News.

"The investigation ... uncovered a multi-year conspiracy involving senior UAW officials embezzling, stealing and unlawfully and willfully abstracting and converting UAW funds to purchase luxury items and accommodations for their own personal benefit," Labor Department Special Agent Andrew Donohue wrote in an affidavit. "The outlay of the funds was not properly approved, was concealed from the view of the UAW members, and used for the personal benefit of the upper echelon of union officials who were elected to represent the members' best interests above their own."


Pelosi running again, 80 on Election Day, soon to become oldest speaker ever

It’s official, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning to run for another term.

Coy on her plans to date, Washington's top Democrat told C-SPAN’s Steve Scully that she will file for a 17th term.

“Oh, yeah, well I’m not making any political plans right now, but we’ll just take it one day at a time,” the Democrat initially said.

Pete Buttigieg’s unprompted attacks on Mike Pence are all about scoring easy points with the base

South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg can't have it both ways. Either he lied a few years ago about having a good working relationship with Vice President and former Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, or he is lying now about his stated dislike for the vice president.

Either way, you should disregard anything the mayor says now about Pence. This entire one-sided “feud” is a cynical ploy meant to whip up enthusiasm among the Democratic base.

On Thursday, during a 2020 Democratic primary debate in Houston, Buttigieg once again took an unprompted shot at his former governor, who is both a devout Christian and pro-traditional marriage. The moment occurred after ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos said as he wrapped up the evening, “No president can succeed without resilience. Every president confronts crises, defeats, and mistakes.”

Booker introduces bill requiring gun owners get a federal license

WASHINGTON — Legislation requiring gun owners to receive a federal license every five years was introduced Tuesday by U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, who has made gun safety a major issue during his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

“This bill is based on a very simple concept - if you need a license to drive a car, you should need a license to buy and possess a gun,” said Booker, who first proposed mandatory gun licensing in May.

Booker’s bill would require would-be gun owners to pass a firearm safety training course, undergo a criminal background check and provide fingerprints. The license would be valid for five years after which time the applicant must pass another safety course and another background check.


'Historic milestone': Senate Republicans confirm 150th judge during Trump presidency

"This is a historic milestone,” Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham said in a statement Wednesday. "These conservative judicial appointments will impact our nation for years to come."

Loud sex mistaken for fight leads to gunshots at Days Inn Hotel in Towson

TOWSON, Md. (WMAR) — Police responded for a fight inside a hotel room, then it turned out it was just two women having loud sex, it ended with a security guard getting shot at.

That's what charging documents say happened Monday afternoon at the Days Inn Hotel in the 8700 block of Loch Raven Boulevard in Towson.

It all started when two clerks working at the front desk of the hotel got a call from one of the rooms.

During the call, the workers reportedly heard two people fighting in the background, prompting the on-duty security guard to call police.


Malkin to Trump: ‘Shut Down’ Federal Reserve Remittance Program for Illegal Aliens

Columnist Michelle Malkin is calling on President Trump to “shut down” a Federal Reserve program that profits off remittances sent to foreign countries by illegal aliens.

During an interview with SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, Malkin detailed how the Federal Reserve actually aids illegal aliens living in the United States through a federal remittance program, included in her latest book, Open Borders, Inc: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?

“I was working on a section in Chapter One which is on the caravan cartel called ‘Banking on Illegals’ and I’d reported on this all the way back from the late 1990s on Bank of America and Wells Fargo and private institutions that were profiting,” Malkin said. “And in the middle of that research, I discovered the Federal Reserve, itself, was trying to hone in on this segment of the market with its own program to have a remittance program that is specifically marketed to illegal aliens in America.”


'I want them to back off': Whoopie Goldberg rips Democrats supporting single-payer healthcare

The View host Whoopi Goldberg tore into Democratic presidential candidates who are looking to take away private health insurance.

"I don’t know why everyone assumes that I’m unhappy with the people who do my insurance. You can’t make that assumption for people," Goldberg said Friday on the show. "You have to allow people to make these decisions for themselves. Otherwise, you’re taking choice away."

"You have the right to decide," she continued. "Nobody knows how your doctors work. Nobody knows what you need but you. So, I want them to back off telling me what I have to do because that’s the same thing that I hear from other people."

Obama AG Loretta Lynch Requested Investigation of Planned Parenthood Video Journalists

The California Department of Justice agent who was present during the raid on David Daleiden’s home in 2016 testified Tuesday that Obama-era Attorney General Loretta Lynch requested the investigation of the undercover video journalist and his colleague in the wake of their video exposé of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue trafficking practices, reported LifeSiteNews.

Special agent Brian Cardwell testified in San Francisco during the preliminary hearing in the criminal case against Daleiden and his colleague, Sandra Merritt, that Lynch sent a letter to former California Attorney General Kamala Harris, now a U.S. senator and a Democrat candidate for president, requesting that the two undercover journalists of Center for Medical Progress (CMP) be investigated.

Harris, who received thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood, authorized the raid and seizure of Daleiden’s personal property, including his laptop. Subsequently, she initiated the criminal prosecution against both journalists.


Michelle Malkin Takes On Pro-Illegal Immigration Punks In Maryland

Conservative author and powerhouse of a woman Michelle Malkin ventured into one of the worst counties in America on Friday in hopes of shedding light on Montgomery County's unsafe policies that protect illegal immigrants and endanger United States citizens. Malkin, author of Open Borders Inc: Who's Funding America's Destruction, traveled to the Maryland county to face local "leaders" like Marc Elrich who have allowed at least eight alleged rapes at the hands of illegal immigrants to occur in the area in the past two months. As Townhall has covered, the county's legal response to these illegal immigrants has been atrocious. The county board even recently sent a letter blaming conservatives and other Americans concerned with the crime as "neo-Nazis." Malkin was having none of that on Friday.

Malkin joined radio host Larry O'Connor and a host of other patriotic Americans who travelled to The Old Line State today for a protest titled "Community Rally to Protect Our Families and Children."

As reported by the Daily Caller News Foundation, Malkin said before the event that it would be "a rally of local citizens and some national personalities all gather on the steps of the Montgomery County government complex in Rockville, really taking this fight to the heart of this illegal alien sanctuary space."
