Weird New Kinds Of Cocaine Could Start A “Hidden Epidemic” Of Health Threats

A hidden epidemic of chronic disease — organ failure, leaky blood vessels, and “flesh eating” infections — might threaten cocaine and meth users in coming years because of increasing signs of dangerous adulterants in illicit drugs, analysts warn.

That’s worrisome because cocaine use is up 47% since its low point in 2011, with 2.2% of people over the age of 12 reporting they have snorted or smoked it in the last year. US cocaine and methamphetamine overdose deaths have also roughly tripled in the last five years, according to the CDC. (Methamphetamine overdoses killed 12,987 people last year, and cocaine overdoses killed another 15,699.)

The increases in deaths from these stimulant drugs have been obscured by an even larger number of deaths from opioids: mostly painkiller pills, heroin, or illicit fentanyl. More than 40,000 people died of opioid overdoses in 2018, a slight decline from the previous year, which remarkably led to the first decline in total US overdose deaths in 28 years.



Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto spoke to Euractiv’s Croatian edition mainly about migration and EU affairs.

Speaking of migration, Szijjarto reminded that “we have had a massive influx of illegal migrants in 2015, and since then there have been 33 terrorist attacks conducted on the EU territory. The attacks committed by people with a migrant background were responsible for 330 victims that have been killed since then.” The minister warned that “there are 35 million people in our immediate neighborhood ready to come to Europe very soon.”

According to Szijjarto, the EU should primarily be focused on securing its borders.

He said that the debate about the Spitzenkandidat system “has much deeper meaning, because there are two basic approaches when it comes to the structure and the future of the EU. One approach claims that the EU should be a supranational institution; the United States of Europe, with strong Brussels and weak member states. The other states believe that the biggest power should be given to sovereign nations, thus, they perceive the EU as the integration of sovereign countries.”


Time for Plan B

Salisbury MSP Press Release 7-31-19 (Hit and Run)

Tens of Thousands of Water Bottles Intended for Hurricane Victims Were Found in Puerto Rico Field

Tens of thousands of water bottles meant for survivors of the two hurricanes that pummeled Puerto Rico in 2017 have been found sitting unopened and expired on a private estate.

Aerial images from the news agency AFP show fields covered in piles of water bottles, many packaged in giant bundles that look like they were never opened. AFP said the site is about 25 miles west of San Juan.

A spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency told AFP the water bottles had been sent to Puerto Rico as part of relief efforts after Hurricane Maria in September 2017, which destroyed much of the United States territory and, by some estimates, killed nearly 3,000 people. The storm hit just two weeks after Hurricane Irma skirted the island, causing widespread damage and power outages.


Judges Seated by Trump Begin to Transform ‘9th Circus’

The Trump administration gained a rare victory this summer in the most unlikely of venues—the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely viewed as the most liberal federal appeals court.

One big reason: President Donald Trump’s appointments to the 9th Circuit have moved it closer to ideological balance.

The court, long known for being both liberal and among the most overturned circuits, has been a thorn in Trump’s side, ruling against the president multiple times, mostly on immigration policies.

The confirmation of Trump nominee Daniel Bress in July gave the president his seventh judge on the court. It also brought the once lopsided appeals court to 16 Democrat appointees and 12 Republican appointees, with one remaining vacancy.


While Colleges Spend Hundreds Of Millions On Diversity Offices, A Majority Of Students Report Zero Or Negative Impact

Sixty-seven percent of college students polled at major universities who were familiar with their school’s diversity office said those offices either have no impact or a negative impact on their experience, an exclusive poll conducted for the Daily Caller by the College Pulse reveals.

Of the 3001 college students surveyed, 19 percent report they are aware of a diversity administrator and believe this administrator has positively impacted their college experience. 98 percent of the top 200 universities in America employ a diversity officer.

These universities are now spending hundreds of millions of dollars on diversity, as college tuitions rise steadily.

No employees were dedicated to diversity in 2003 at the University of Michigan, for example. Now, 93 people are employed by Michigan’s Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, receiving a combined $10.6 million in annual salaries, according to AEI scholar and Professor of Economics and Finance at the University of Michigan Mark Perry. In 2016, the University of Michigan announced an $85 million investment to transform diversity culture on campus, including a $10 million multicultural student center, a new program to help freshmen navigate cultural differences, and outreach programs to recruit more diverse students, faculty, and staff.


Donald Trump urges America to 'get smart' after two Somali refugees are caught trying to fly from Arizona to Egypt to join ISIS

Donald Trump urged America to 'get smart' after two Somali refugees were arrested for trying to join ISIS - threatening to reignite his feud with Ilhan Omar, herself a former Somali refugee.

The President highlighted a case in Arizona where two young men told an undercover FBI agent that they wanted to 'achieve martyrdom' in the Middle East.

One plotter allegedly called for 'another 9/11' and said: 'I want to be the beheading guy.'

The two were arrested on Friday at Tuscon International Airport after checking into a flight for Egypt, where they allegedly planned to join ISIS.

Trump's intervention comes just two weeks after he told Rep. Omar and her firebrand left-wing colleagues to 'go back' to their supposed home countries, prompting his supporters to chant 'send her back' at one of the President's rallies.



Antifa is preparing for a violent 10-day siege on the southern border in El Paso, Texas, in an effort to “shut down” Immigration and Customs Enforcement and open the border to illegals.

Journalist Andy Ngo, who was brutally attacked by Antifa in Portland, Oregon, last month, showed flyers Antifa is using to promote their effort for September, featuring images of ICE agents being murdered with bow and arrows and firebombs while anarchists bomb an ICE facility and southern border wall to let illegals flow into the U.S.

“Antifa is leading a ‘Border Resistance‘ militancy training tour that will converge on a 10-day siege in El Paso, TX,” Ngo tweeted Monday.

“The promotional image shows border enforcement officers being killed & government property fired bombed. Organizers asking for ‘white comrades’ to pay for others.”



Gun control talking points from 2020 Democrat candidates are filled with vague statements and non-specific terminology used to confuse voters who are uneducated when it comes to firearms and gun culture.

For example, “high-capacity magazines,” “assault weapons” and “common sense” gun control are buzzwords frequently thrown out by Democrat politicians to demonize firearms.

Remember, when a Democrat says “assault weapons” or “weapons of war,” they mean semiautomatic weapons which include everything from AR-15s to hunting rifles and handguns.


How to Tell if a Trump Supporter Is Racist

Every non-liberal leftist — that is, nearly every Democrat running for president, New York Times and Washington Post columnist, CNN and MSNBC host, and your left-wing brother-in-law — labels every Trump supporter and, of course, President Donald Trump, a “racist.”

And they don’t stop there. Leftists don’t only label the half of the country that supports the president “racist,” they label all whites and America itself “racist.” If your son or daughter attends or recently attended an American university, it is close to certain he or she was repeatedly told that America and all whites are racist. According to the left, whites are divided between those who admit they are racist and those who don’t admit it.

Every conservative and many liberals know this is a big lie. The great question is: Do leftists believe it? It is impossible to know. But this we do know: If you repeat something often enough, and if your Weltanschauung (worldview) and that which gives your life meaning are dependent upon believing something, you will eventually believe it.


U.S. Soccer Releases ‘Fact Sheet’ Showing Women’s Team Actually LOST Millions Yet Was Still Paid More Than Men’s Team

The President of the U.S. Soccer Federation (USSF) released a “fact sheet” Monday night alleging that, contrary to claims made as part of a lawsuit, the U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) actually lost the federation millions of dollars. Despite this, the president claimed, women soccer players still out-earned their male counterparts.

Every four years, when the Women’s soccer World Cup is in the news, we are told that the women’s team is paid less than the men’s team. The claim is used as a rallying cry in the demand for equal pay, even though athletes and other entertainers have vastly different pay structures than average Americans.

Still, we are told the women’s team is discriminated against because of their gender because they are paid less than the men’s team. Earlier this year, the women’s team filed a lawsuit against the USSF alleging pay discrimination. In June, the women’s team released information alleging they brought in more revenue for USSF than the men’s team. The difference was slight — $50.8 million to $49.9 million — but it was enough to cast doubt on those saying the women’s team doesn’t bring in as much revenue as the men’s team.


The Fix Was in from the Start for Hillary's 'Exoneration,' Immunity Agreements with Aides Suggest

The American Center for Law and Justice finally got some satisfaction from its numerous FOIA requests to the Department of Justice. It took a specific court order from a federal judge to release long-secret documents that might raise a few eyebrows among those who are still interested in matters pertaining to Hillary Clinton's aides and the former secretary of state's missing emails.

The ACLJ has obtained the DOJ’s infamous immunity agreements with Hillary Clinton’s top aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson – documents previously unreleased to the public and which include the DOJ attempting to enter an agreement not to comply with the requirements of FOIA, and which confirm it agreed to “dispose” of evidence, including Mills’ and Samuelson’s “culling laptops” which contained all of the missing emails from Hilary Clinton’s private homebrew server.
The immunity agreements signed by Mills and Samuelson are, to say the least, overly generous to their legal interests:
As we have advised you, we consider Cheryl Mills to be a witness based on the information gathered to date in this investigation. We understand that Cheryl Mills is willing to voluntarily provide the Mills Laptop to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, if the United States agrees not to use any information directly obtained from the Mills Laptop in any prosecution of Cheryl Mills for the mishandling of classified information and/or the removal or destruction of records as described below.


President Trump has declared the left’s witch hunt against him officially over after a federal judge dismissed the DNC’s lawsuit against his 2016 campaign team by saying the DNC’s argument was “entirely divorced” from the facts.

Additionally, the judge said the accused members of Trump’s team “did not participate in any wrongdoing in obtaining the materials in the first place.”

Trump immediately responded to the ruling on Twitter.


Organizers pull plug on Woodstock 50 at Merriweather Post

The 50th-anniversary Woodstock festival, which had been set to come to the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, after having fallen through in two New York State sites, has been canceled.

“We are saddened that a series of unforeseen setbacks has made it impossible to put on a festival we imagined with the great line-up we had booked and the social engagement we were anticipating,” festival organizer Michael Lang, a co-founder of the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival, said in a statement Wednesday.

The shows were going to be held Aug. 16-18, and were designed to raise awareness and money for HeadCount, a nonprofit dedicated to increasing voter registration and participation that works mainly at music festivals.

Lang encouraged “artists and agents, who all have been fully paid, to donate 10% of their fees to HeadCount or causes of their choice in the spirit of peace.”


Jeffrey Epstein Risks Being Killed by 'Powerful People,' Lawyer Warns

A lawyer, who represented Jeffrey Epstein's victims over a decade ago, has warned that the pedophile billionaire's "life is definitely in jeopardy" in prison, as he risks being killed by "powerful people."

Attorney Spencer Kuvin, who represented three women during the criminal proceedings against Epstein, fears the Clinton-linked financier may not live to see his trial for child sex trafficking charges.

Last week, Epstein was reportedly found injured on the floor of his jail cell, which was believed to be the result of either "attempted suicide or assault," although any details have yet to be confirmed.


Bailouts for Pensions -- ‘Through No Fault of Their Own’

On July 18, former House Speaker John Boehner and former Rep. Joe Crowley appeared together on “Fox Business” to talk with Neil Cavuto about America’s failing multiemployer pension plans (video). Boehner said there are ten million folks enrolled in such pension plans, and Crowley spoke of a looming “crisis.”

On June 19, The Hill ran “Taxpayers, businesses will also lose if pensions go bust” by Bradley Blakeman, who claims America has upwards of 300 multiemployer pension plans in danger of failing:
This problem is unprecedented. As the U.S. Chamber of Commerce noted in a 2018 report on the topic, “the sheer number and size of plans headed toward [insolvency] during the next decade present the system with challenges of a size and scope never before seen.”

Employers cannot leave these plans without making massive payouts or declaring bankruptcy. The result is they remain on the hook for making payments for pensions likely to collapse anyway, putting them at a competitive disadvantage. And if the plan goes belly up? It could be even worse for companies, as they could be assessed an immediate withdrawal liability or subjected to minimum funding rules that could drive them out of business.


Democrat Politician Ibraheem Samirah Who Screamed at Trump About His Deported Father – Forgets to Mention His Ties to Hamas

Democrat Delegate Ibraheem Samirah stood and screamed at President Trump today during his historic Jamestown speech.

Ibraheem held up a sign that says, “Reunite my family.”

President Trump was interrupted by a Democrat member of Virginia’s House of Delegates during a speech Tuesday marking the 400th anniversary of the first meeting of the Virginia legislature in Jamestown in 1619–the first representative legislative assembly in the Western Hemisphere.

Democrat Ibraheem Samirah stood near the front of the stage facing the audience, holding several signs strung together and yelling, “Mr. President, you can’t send us back, Virginia is our home!” Supporters of the President booed and chanted, “Trump! Trump! Trump!”

The messages on the signs read, “Go Back to Your Corrupted Home”, “Deport Hate” and “Reunite My Family And All Shattered by Systemic Discrimination”.


Study: Baltimore’s Murder Rate Outpaces Central America’s Most Dangerous Countries

The murder rate of Baltimore, Maryland, is set to continue to be higher than Central America’s most dangerous countries, analysis finds.

Research by Princeton Policy Advisors’ Steven Kopits reveals that Baltimore has long had a higher murder rate than the most crime-ridden nations of Central America, where thousands of migrants flee from every year.

Based on the current rate of murders in Baltimore, Kopits projects that Baltimore’s murder rate for 2019 will come in at about 56 murders per 100,000 people — making it more than twice as dangerous as the country of Guatemala.

To date, there have been nearly 200 murders in Baltimore since the beginning of the year.


Warren Campaign Fellowship Applicants: It Was a ‘Great Scam’

Applicants to a volunteer fellowship on Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D., Mass) presidential campaign have called the program a "great scam," claiming that operation exploits unpaid members of Warren's team.

In a report from the Daily Beast, two young men who had applied to volunteer for Warren's campaign complained that the Senator's image of a trust-busting champion of worker's rights against exploitative corporations does not match the way her own campaign is run. The applicants told the Daily Beast that they were pushed to take unpaid positions over paid ones, that they were deceived about the possibility of financial assistance and that they were asked to sign irregular nondisclosure agreements.

"What was sold to me was very different than it actually was," said Jonathan Nendze, a rising senior at Seton Hall University. "It was kind of a great scam of getting people to show up and work in the capacity of volunteer, but to function as a paid intern in the amount of work they're doing."


Too funny not to share

Marcus: The Growing Danger of Misinformed Millennials

Here is an excerpt from an email from a misinformed white millennial:

Mr Marcus, as a black man, if you don't agree in part with Mr. Kaepernick, I feel bad for you. I am white, and feel that the issues facing the black community in the US from the police, legal elements, property, education are skewed, and need to be rectified. I am concerned that someone with your pulpit isn't out there helping out.

I usually receive emails from progressives who call me an Uncle Tom stupid n***** for loving my country and not viewing myself as a victim. This well-intentioned young emailer is infected with anti-Americanism via public education and casual contact with Democrats, Hollywood, social media, and fake news media. He is a prime candidate for recruitment into a terrorist hate group like Antifa.

Everything he thinks he knows is wrong. For example: Blacks are not persecuted by police. Research data confirms that police are the greatest defenders of black lives. A Harvard study said there is zero evidence of police racial bias. The greatest threat to black lives are black criminals.

Haters of America and Trump had a cow, accusing Trump of racism, for daring to tweet the ugly truth about Baltimore which is a hellhole of crime and record black-on-black homicides. I praise God for our president's courage. Trump is making Democrats accountable for the pain, suffering, and lawlessness in cities they have controlled for decades. I say, “Right on, brother Trump. Right on!”

My young emailer believes education is skewed against blacks. The opposite is true. K-8 white students are outrageously taught they were born racist and should feel guilty for their “white privilege.” The fact that blacks drop out of school in epidemic numbers has nothing to do with white America. It has everything to do with fatherless households and an abandonment of biblical morality.


Civil Rights Panel Wants to Bring Back Obama’s Race-Based School Discipline Policies. Bad Idea.

Washington late last year reversed a policy that was micromanaging the way teachers and principals kept order in classrooms. Now, a federal commission wants to limit local educators’ control again.

Teachers should be feeling whiplash.

In December, the U.S. Department of Education and the Justice Department rescinded federal directives that said Washington would investigate schools based on the number of times teachers and principals suspended or expelled minority students—even if the offending students had committed violence. A school could have lost federal funding as a result.

The rules came from a 2014 Obama administration letter sent to districts around the country instructing educators to limit such punishments, even if a student was a danger to his or her peers.


Democrats Embrace Racism To Protect Their Own

Liberal pearls were clutched from coast to coast again the other day when President Donald Trump tweeted about the Baltimore Congressional district of Elijah Cummings. “Racism,” they cried, mostly because they cry that in response to any criticism who, to use another of their broken record responses, happens to be a “person of color.” Well, I lived in that district from 2001 till 2014, I watched people recoil when I told them. President Trump was too kind.

To give the full context of the president’s tweets, since unless you follow him on Twitter you’ve likely only heard small portions of them, he wrote, “Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA. As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”

First off, Cummings did attack the acting Secretary of Homeland Security the week before, screaming at Kevin McAleenan over the conditions in which illegal aliens are held at the border.


The NAACP’s Hateful Call to Impeach the President

At the 110th NAACP annual convention in Detroit, delegates voted unanimously last week to call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The NAACP’s official Twitter account announced the news Wednesday, including the hashtag #WhenWeFightWeWin.

Many NAACP members and liberal lawmakers alike are tenacious about the president’s potential impeachment.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., known for her dislike of the president, might be more passionate than anyone else. Standing on stage at the convention, Tlaib stated that she is going “nowhere, not until I impeach this president.”


Here's who Democrats are praising when they praise Al Sharpton

In the past few days, Democrats have lined up to praise the legacy of Al Sharpton.

Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden called him a "champion in the fight for civil rights." Sen. Elizabeth Warren declared he "has dedicated his life to the fight for justice for all." Sen. Kamala Harris said Sharpton "has spent his life fighting for what's right and working to improve our nation, even in the face of hate."

For those who were too young or who grew up outside of the New York area, Sharpton may be just a standard issue liberal activist or goofy television personality. But in reality, Sharpton is much more sinister than that: he is a vile Jew hater with blood on his hands.


Video: Virginia delegate disrupts Trump speech at Jamestown

A Virginia delegate disrupted President Donald Trump’s speech at an event in historic Jamestown commemorating the 400th anniversary of the rise of American democracy.

Del. Ibraheem Samirah (D-Fairfax) stood up and held up signs that read “deport hate” and “reunite my family.”

A third message said “go back to your corrupted home.” Samirah was led out of the speech site as some members of the crowd chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump.”

Samirah said in a Tweet he interupted Trump’s speech “because nobody’s racism and bigotry should be excused for the sake of being polite.” He added, “The man is unfit for office and unfit to partake in a celebration of democracy, representation, and our nation’s history of immigrants.”


Motorcyclist Faces 44 Charges After Striking Officer, Police Car

OCEAN CITY — A Pennsylvania man faces over 40 charges this week after allegedly fleeing from police on his motorcycle at a high rate of speed and colliding with an Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officer and a patrol vehicle.

Around 10:50 p.m. on Saturday, OCPD officers were conducting an investigation of an unregistered motorcycle parked illegally on Talbot Street near Philadelphia Avenue. A check of the unattended motorcycle’s tags revealed it was not registered and a tow truck was requested to transport the vehicle to the Ocean City impound lot.

While OCPD officers waited near the motorcycle for the tow truck to arrive, they were approached by its owner and operator, identified as Wilmer Zook, 23, of Quarryville, Pa., who exhibited signs of intoxication, according to police reports. OCPD officers explained the motorcycle was going to be impounded because it was not registered and Zook offered to disengage the vehicle’s transmission to facilitate the towing process.


Democratic state headquarters vandalized with AOC-inspired graffiti


The Jefferson County, Kentucky Democratic Party headquarters was vandalized with graffiti related to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Sunday.

The graffiti reads "TREASON DEM," "WITCH HUNT" and "RACIST AOC," on the side of the building.

"This kind of hate filled graffiti is an unfortunate symptom of today's environment where folks won't come together for honest debate and discourse. Free speech is about buying a billboard with your options, not vandalizing a building with graffiti," the party said in a statement to WDRB.


Princess Anne Man Sentenced to Over 11 Years in Federal Prison for Brandishing a Firearm During and in Furtherance of the Armed Robbery of an Armored Vehicle in Salisbury, Maryland

Co-Defendants Previously Sentenced to 9 Years and 20 Years in Federal Prison

Baltimore, Maryland – U.S. District Judge Richard D. Bennett today sentenced Ryan Shevin Smith, age 39, of Princess Anne, Maryland, to 141 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, for conspiring to commit the robbery of an armored vehicle in Salisbury, Maryland on January 22, 2018, for participating in the robbery and for brandishing a firearm during and in furtherance of a crime of violence. Smith pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit the robbery and to participating in the robbery, and a federal jury convicted him of brandishing the firearm.

The sentence was announced by United States Attorney for the District of Maryland Robert K. Hur; Special Agent in Charge Jennifer C. Boone of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Baltimore Field Office; and Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan.

According to the evidence presented at his two-day trial and court documents, at approximately 7:15 a.m. on January 22, 2018, Smith and his co-defendants, Michael Watts and Orneth South, approached the driver of the armored vehicle as he was removing cash cassettes from an ATM machine at a credit union on Mt. Hermon Road in Salisbury, Maryland. Co-defendant Michael Watts placed a .40-caliber handgun to the driver’s head and disarmed him of his service weapon. Watts testified that he got the .40-caliber handgun from Smith, which was named “Big Nasty,” and that Smith took the gun back after the robbery. Watts then grabbed the driver by the hair and order him to open the door of the armored vehicle. After the driver opened the door, Smith and South removed several bags of money from the vehicle, as well as ATM cassettes filled with cash. Watts then forced the driver into the vehicle, where he used zip ties to secure the driver’s hands. The robbers then fled with the money, stealing a total of $1,324,288. The robbers went to Smith’s residence in nearby Princess Anne and divided the stolen money. South and Watts then left and headed south, toward North Carolina.

Trump says black voters in Baltimore calling White House to thank him

President Trump said Tuesday that “grateful” blacks in Baltimore are calling the White House to thank him for exposing corruption by their elected city officials, including Democratic Rep. Elijah E. Cummings.

“They are so happy, because I get the calls,” Mr. Trump told reporters. “They are happy as hell. The African-American community is so thankful at what I’ve been doing. They’ve been calling me and saying finally somebody is telling the truth.”

Mr. Trump is in a running feud with Mr. Cummings, chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, whose district includes much of Baltimore. The president called it a “rat and rodent infested mess” last weekend, renewing accusations of racism from Democrats such as the Rev. Al Sharpton.

“I am the least racist person in the world,” the president said.

Of Mr. Sharpton, the president said, “He is a racist.”


Black Administration Official Defends Trump, Blasts Sharpton, Baltimore Mayor In Fiery Denunciation

On Monday, Lynne Patton, a regional administrator for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, blasted Baltimore Mayor Bernard Young, former Maryland Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele, and Reverend Al Sharpton for ripping President Trump for his comments about the horrible conditions in the city of Baltimore, and Young for his comments in an interview with CNN in which he stated, “Do we have problems? Yeah. We have problems with crime just like every other major city. If you want to help us, help us. You talk about wanting to make America great again, put money into cities that need it most.”

Patton fired back, “I want to say this expressly to Mayor Young and Michael Steele, and Al Sharpton, who today called out the president and said, 'Let President Trump put his money where his mouth is': Well, boys and girls, I have a message for you: President Trump has given $16 billion in 2018 alone to Elijah Cummings's district in federal grants. We have given more money in homeless funds to Baltimore than the last administration; we have given more money in community development grants than the last administration to Baltimore.”

Then she added one more salvo, snapping, "My question to you guys is this: What are you actually doing with the money so that it benefits residents in the community instead of deep-pocketed American politicians?” In June 2017, Patton was appointed by President Trump to head Region II of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development, which oversees New York and New Jersey.

I Wonder If The Local NAACP President Will Call Me Racist For This Post Too?

I'll never forget NAACP President Mary Ashante saying to me, "black people can be racist too" after learning the articles I had published were written by black people and she considered those articles racist. Boy was she surprised when she learned who the authors were. 

DACA recipient earns deportation after transporting undocumented immigrants in high-speed chase

A Mexican national and recipient of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was ordered to be deported after a high-speed chase with three undocumented immigrants in his car.

Jose Yepez-Vega, 22, was arrested in July 2018 near Laredo, Texas. Law enforcement saw Yepez-Vega’s vehicle attempt to avoid a checkpoint and began to pursue him, but he didn’t pull over and instead fled for more than 50 miles with officers from multiple jurisdictions in pursuit. KVEO reports that his vehicle reached speeds upwards of 130 mph

Yepez-Vega eventually lost control of his vehicle and was apprehended. Three undocumented immigrants were discovered in the car and admitted to paying between $4,000 and $6,000 to be smuggled into the country.


So True

Fatal Motorcycle Accident In Ocean City

'Complete Chaos': Why The House Democrats' Campaign Arm Just Purged Its Top Staffers

House Democrats may be united in their hatred of President Donald Trump, but that doesn’t mean drama can’t engulf the party. It’s now a two-front war. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who tried to create a buffer zone between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her crew, was forced to embrace them when Trump attacked them on social media. This Leninist Girl Scout Troop is starting to be viewed as the face of the Democratic Party, along with all of their left-wing proposals that are not viewed favorably by the electorate, especially Independent voters. For swing voters in the competitive House races in 2020, AOC and her posse were not viewed positively at all; the same goes for their trash policy proposals. Now, we have issues at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

These internal divisions aren’t going away. You’d think that the DCCC would navigate through the criticisms concerning a lack of diversity at the upper crust. Nope. Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL), the chair this cycle, has decided to cave to those members, purging its top staff. The rumblings of a possible shakeup were in the works, with the situation at the DCCC being described as “complete chaos” (via Politico):
