Trump Starts Implementing Ban on Welfare-Dependent Immigration to U.S.

President Trump’s administration on Monday started implementing the federal regulation geared toward stopping likely welfare-dependent legal immigrants from permanently resettling in the United States.

After the U.S. Supreme Court gave the green light for the regulation, the Trump administration has now begun applying what is known as the “Public Charge” rule — a rule whereby legal immigrants are less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including any cash benefits for income maintenance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)– otherwise known as food stamps, Medicaid, and certain taxpayer-funded housing programs.

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said in a statement that the Public Charge rule is merely a continuation of “longstanding law” dating back to the 1800s. Most recently in 1996, a rule demanding legal immigrants be self-sufficient was codified into federal statute but has hardly ever been enforced. Cuccinelli said:

"This rule enforces long-standing law requiring aliens to be self-sufficient, reaffirming the American ideals of hard work, perseverance, and determination. It also offers clarity and expectations to aliens considering a life in the United States and will help protect our public benefits programs."

Is The Wicomico States Attorney Afraid To Tell The Truth?

After a long delay States Attorney Jamie Dykes continues to delay the press release exposing the corruption within the Salisbury Police Department. 

It would appear Jamie Dykes is well controlled by the Good Ol' Boys and will follow their lead, as if this is going to go away? It's bad enough we had to watch the BS charges on Liz Day. Now it's Police Chief Barbara Duncan getting preferential treatment. 

It looks like its time to find and elect a new States Attorney. What do you think?

White House asking Congress for $2.5 billion to fight coronavirus

The Trump administration announced Monday night that it will ask Congress for "at least $2.5 billion" in additional funding to fight the coronavirus.

The request indicates that the administration is seeking to step up its response to the virus as it spreads to more countries.

However, the request met quick resistance from Democrats. Just $1.25 billion of the request is for new funding, with the rest requested to be taken from existing health programs, including $535 million from fighting Ebola.

"The Trump administration’s request for emergency funding is woefully insufficient to protect Americans from the deadly coronavirus outbreak," said House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.).

Woman, 36, Busted For Calling 911 To Complain Parents Shut Off Her Cellphone Service

A 36-year-old Ohio woman who called 911 to complain that her parents had shut off her cellphone service is facing a felony charge, records show.

Seloni Khetarpal was arrested Thursday for disrupting public services after twice dialing the police emergency line and asking for cops to be dispatched to her family’s spacious Canton residence, which abuts the 18th hole at the Glenmoor Country Club.

According to a criminal complaint, Khetarpal called 911 demanding that cops come to her home since her parents had disconnected her cell service. An operator advised Khetarpal, seen at right, to “only call for police assistance for legitimate purposes.”

List of liberal, progressive and / or anti-Trump companies

The first rule of business is to never even discuss politics. Well these companies have broken that Cardinal rule, thus alienating half the country. These companies are a threat to not just conservative speech but free speech and freedom in general. Obviously it may be impossible to boycott all of these, but just keep in mind that there are ways to partially boycott them (example: Not buying food / drinks, uniforms if you attend NFL games). Try to support other companies instead.

ICE ignores California laws and arrests illegal aliens at the courthouse door

In 2018, California implemented the California Values Act, which gave special protection to illegal aliens by mandating that California law enforcement agencies cannot cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Last week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) thumbed its nose at California and arrested two people in Sonoma County Superior Court.

California has lots of reasons to hang onto its roughly 2.2 – 3.5 million illegal immigrants. They provide cheap, easily-exploited labor. They swell the state’s population, which matters for electors and congresspeople, as well as the distribution of certain federal funds. As illegal immigrants are fed into the system, they provide reliable (legal or illegal) Democrat votes. And they make Californians feel virtuous even as they allow corrupt Latin American states to continue exploiting their own citizens and destroying their economies by relying on remittances from people illegally in America.

For these reasons, California enacted the pompously named “California Values Act.” Although the act refers to “immigrants,” it’s obviously intended to affect only illegal aliens because the Act’s entire purpose is to use the agencies of the state to prevent ICE from gaining access to people illegally in California – including people who have committed crimes in California. This is the type of law that could only come from legislators and other virtue signalers ensconced in comfortable middle- and upper-middle-class enclaves unaffected by felonies that would never have happened but for open borders and sanctuaries.

Bernie Sanders launches ANOTHER massive spending commitment with plan for free child care and pre-K from 'tax on billionaires' after victory in Nevada but dodges question on how much it will cost

Bernie Sanders unveiled his plan for 'universal childcare' in an interview Sunday – saying the new federal benefit will be funded by a tax on wealth.

The senator from Vermont defended the plan even as he takes fire from more centrist presidential rivals who have questioned the multi-trillion cost of his Medicare for All plan.

'It's taxes on billionaires,' he told host Anderson Cooper on CBS' '60 Minutes' Sunday.

MSNBC HOPES A ‘GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS’ WILL HELP DEMOCRATS WIN IN 2020

Talking heads on MSNBC gleefully imagined how an economic disaster could derail President Trump’s reelection this November.

MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle and CNBC contributor Dan Nathan discussed Friday how the current positive state of the economy would effect Democrat odds in 2020, with Nathan asserting with no evidence that a “global financial crisis” could give Democrats the leg up they need to defeat Trump.

“The labor market is really tight, and economically, in an election year, that could pose a really big problem when you think about it here because we’re just not seeing the sort of economic growth that you might expect at this stage of the recovery over the last ten years,” Nathan said.

White House: Drug Prices Dropped 11 Percent Under Trump

A White House Council of Economic Advisors (CEA) report released this week found that drug prices fell by more than 11 percent under President Donald Trump.

A White House CEA report found that President Trump’s actions have reduced prescription drug prices. The CEA detailed that, under former President Barack Obama, drug prices continued to increase and only started to fall after Trump took the oath of office.

The CEA wrote that prescription drug prices fell more than 11 percent and well below general inflation.

“In 2018, prescription drug prices even declined in nominal terms over the calendar year for the first time since 1972,” the White House council wrote.

Lithuanian Immigrant to Bernie Supporters: ‘Go to a Socialist Country and Live There a While’

A Lithuanian immigrant who attended President Donald Trump’s rally in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Friday spoke to Breitbart News and warned of the dangers of communism, saying Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) supporters “should go to a socialist country” to understand what it is like.

“I thought America is free,” said Daiva Gaulyte, an immigrant from Lithuania who has lived under communism. “I’ve been in a communist country. I don’t want to have it here.”

“The communist took away my grandparents’ land, they transported them to Siberia, and then when they got all this land, they didn’t know what to do with them because they’re lazy,” Gaulyte continued. “Communists are lazy.”

“There is nothing they can do with that land so they gave lands back to work on it, but it was very difficult to have any kind of profit, but you could work on it because the lands were just sitting there and communists didn’t know what to do with it.”

Gaulyte also explained how she was restricted from viewing certain American materials under the rule of communism.

Adopted Boy Makes It His Mission to Save Old Dogs Who Need a Home

An eight-year-old boy who has been adopted out of the foster care system has made it his mission in life to save old dogs who need a home.

“There’s something about old dogs that I just like,” Robbie Gay told CBS News.

It is mostly because he sees much of himself in them, because he was so badly abused as a child he had to be hospitalized twice for brain injuries.

Two years ago, Maria and Charles Gay made the decision to adopt him.

“He knows what it feels like not to be loved and cared for. He’s the most hopeful, optimistic, and genuinely caring kid who has absolutely no reason to be that way,” said Robbie’s adoptive mother, Maria.

Maria said her adopted son had come a long way, except for the fact that he could not cry. Despite all that he had been through, or maybe because of all that he had suffered, he had not shed a tear — until earlier in the month when one of Robbie’s older dogs, Buffy, had to be euthanized.

He insisted that he hold Buffy until the very end and that his mother take pictures of the entire process. After Robbie finally let go of Buffy, he told his mother, “I know how it feels not to be loved or cared for, and I don’t want any animal of mine to feel that way.”

Police investigating after more than a dozen Jewish community centers targeted with bomb threat

Authorities are investigating after roughly 18 Jewish community centers around the country received bomb threats via email.

The Albany Jewish Community Center in New York closed early Sunday following the threat and was evacuated as police, who were notified around 11:05 a.m. EST, swept through the building, found nothing amiss, and cleared the scene.

Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the threat, which was also emailed to several other Jewish centers nationwide, is under investigation and expressed his support for Jewish residents in his state.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – High school students won’t have to be “proficient” in either math or English to graduate, under minimum required test scores proposed by State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria.

They will just need to know enough to do the most basic of jobs.

New high school graduation requirements passed this summer require most students to show “competency” in math and English through scores on Ohio’s Algebra I and English II tests to qualify for a diploma. The new requirements start with the class 2023, this year’s high school freshmen.

Global outbreak causes coronavirus pandemic fears after cases jump in Italy, South Korea and Iran

Fears of a global pandemic continue to grow as coronavirus cases spike in several countries, including Italy, South Korea and Iran and the U.S. stock market nosedived early Monday.

A staggering 50 people died in the Iranian city of Qom from the new coronavirus in the month of February, Iran's semiofficial ILNA news agency reported on Monday. The new death toll is significantly higher than the latest number of confirmed cases that Iranian officials had reported just a few hours earlier, which stood at just 12 deaths out of 47 cases, according to state TV.

The 50 deaths date back as far as Feb. 13, according to an Iranian official. Iran previously reported its cases and deaths from the virus on Feb. 19.

He was referring to former FBI Director James Comey, former acting Director Andrew McCabe and a dossier compiled by one-time British spy Christopher Steele.

‘It Destroyed My Body’: Here’s Why This Former Trans Woman Regrets His Gender Transition

A man who once transitioned to a woman said the process destroyed his body and that it is “categorically impossible for anyone to change their innate chemistry” in an interview with the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Walt Heyer’s grandmother dressed him as a girl in a purple dress when he was between the ages of four and six, Heyer said. Though Heyer described how he initially enjoyed the extra attention he received from his grandmother’s affirmations, he said her actions later caused him to experience gender dysphoria.

“Affirmation of cross gender/sex identities is child abuse, and I have been dealing with the consequences in my life for 75 years,” he warned.

Indeed, she and her allies are now targeting several longtime local lawmakers, on the theory that they’re every bit as much of a problem as Republicans.

“It’s time to elect a progressive majority in Congress accountable to strong, grassroots movements that push support for issues like Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, & more,” she tweeted Friday.

“My ambition right now is to be a little less lonely in Congress,” AOC told The New York Times.

Mother says Greta Thunberg was 'disappearing into some kind of darkness' before climate activism

Greta Thunberg's mother is opening up about her daughter's struggles before the climate activist gained global recognition.

Malena Ernman, the mother of Thunberg, described her daughter as severely depressed before taking on her role as an icon for climate activism in an edited extract from her forthcoming book published Sunday by the Guardian.

Beginning in 2014, Thunberg — who is diagnosed with Asperger’s, high-functioning autism, and obsessive-compulsive disorder — struggled to eat, play, laugh, or talk with others as she entered the fifth grade. Her mother also claimed the then-11-year-old cried without ceasing.

Obama DHS whistleblower found dead with gunshot wound in California

Philip Haney, a former Homeland Security Department official during the Obama administration who blew the whistle on his own agency, was found dead Friday with a gunshot wound about 40 miles east of Sacramento, California.

"Upon their arrival, they located and identified 66-year-old Philip Haney, who was deceased and appeared to have suffered a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound. A firearm was located next to Haney and his vehicle. This investigation is active and ongoing. No further details will be released at this time," the sheriff's office said in a statement.

Democrat food fight scheduled for Tuesday night in Charleston

The fallout from the last Democrat debate hasn't settled, and the next one is already upon us. It's Tuesday, February 25 in Charleston, S.C. This one should be just as amusing as was the Nevada one.

Voting in the Nevada caucus was held this Saturday. With luck, the Democrats might be able to present the results by the time the Charleston debate rolls around. If the polls are accurate, Bernie Sanders should be victorious there. This means he will have a target on his back on Tuesday night. Mike Bloomberg will have to step up and go after the Jurassic socialist hammer-and-tongs if he hopes to be the savior of the Stop Bernie movement. My betting is that Bloomberg will try but won't lay a glove on Crazy Bernie, at least not in the eyes of Democrat primary voters.

But Bloomberg won't be on the offensive long. Aside from the baggage he is already carrying, Mini Mike will have an additional problem: the Charleston debate is being sponsored by CBS News and the Congressional Black Caucus Institute. Accordingly, he can expect sharp questions about what is construed as his racially insensitive remarks like his ham-fisted defense of "stop and frisk," comments about blacks and Hispanics not knowing how to behave in the workplace, and his defense of "redlining" in mortgage applications.

Bernie Sanders defends 'not all bad' Fidel Castro as he stands by old remarks praising Communist Cuba and admits he's 'shocked' to be Democrat frontrunner during 60 Minutes interview

Bernie Sanders has praised Fidel Castro's 'massive literacy program', standing by comments he made praising the dictator's rule of Cuba in the 1980s.

The Democratic frontrunner and socialist, 78, defended the Communist regime as 'not all bad' during a wide-ranging 60 Minutes interview which aired Sunday.

During the interview, he told Anderson Cooper: 'We're very opposed to the authoritarian nature of Cuba but you know, it's unfair to simply say everything is bad. You know?

'When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program. Is that a bad thing? Even though Fidel Castro did it?'

Ex-Bill Clinton adviser: Bloomberg and Hillary cooking up 'scheme' for her to become Democratic nominee

A former adviser to President Bill Clinton speculated that Michael Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are plotting a way for her to become the 2020 Democratic nominee even though she’s not in the race.

“Here’s the deal that I think is going down. I think Hillary and Bloomberg have gotten together and cooked up a scheme,” Dick Morris told John Catsimatidis on The Cats Roundtable radio show on Sunday.

He said Bloomberg would stay in the race, even if he has no chance of winning, in an effort to get at least enough support to keep Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from running away with the nomination.

“Nobody will be nominated on the first ballot, and it’ll go to a second ballot,” Morris said of a brokered convention. “The problem is that the party establishment doesn’t have a candidate. They can’t do Bloomberg because he got killed in the debate. … Can’t do [Joe] Biden because he’s already lost the front-runner status. … [Pete] Buttigieg looks like a high school kid at the Model UN. … [Elizabeth] Warren is third, but she’s pretty far to the Left, and they’re not going to want to trust her.”

Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor issues excoriating dissent and says Republican-appointed justices are BIASED towards Trump after Green Card discrimination ruling

Liberal Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted the Trump administration as well as her conservative colleagues on the bench after they okayed banning green cards for those who make use of food stamps, Medicaid, or housing vouchers.

In a 5-to-4 ruling on Friday, the Court's conservative majority allowed the administration's 'wealth test' for would-be immigrants to go into effect while appeals wind their way through the legal system.

The ruling was similar to the one handed down by the high court last month, which was appealed by the administration after a federal judge in New York issued a nationwide injunction.

Friday's ruling by the Supreme Court lifted a limited injunction that applied only to Illinois.

Murphy: Trump Administration Is Weaponizing Classified Information

Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” accused the Trump administration of weaponizing classified information.

He said there were “multiple instances” of this occurring.

Murphy said, “What I am worried about is the politicization of intelligence by this administration. The new acting head of intelligence has no background in intel. He is a trump loyalist, and we all worry about this administration controlling massive amounts of intelligence, massive amounts of classified information, and leaking it out to the press when it advantages them. I have been very worried about the kind of information that the Trump administration keeps classified.”

Amazon seeks $4.5M state grant for Boxwood LogistiCenter

NEWPORT – Amazon, the e-commerce retail giant, is seeking a $4.5 million grant from the state to move into a new multistory distribution center to be built at the former General Motors Boxwood plant.

The request filed Feb. 17 with the Delaware Economic Development Authority’s Council of Development Finance said that Amazon needed the taxpayer-supplied Strategic Fund monies to “establish its operations in Wilmington, Delaware.” It was not listed on the CDF’s initial agenda for the Feb. 24 meeting released Feb. 10.

The company already employs more than 2,500 people at distribution centers in New Castle and Middletown, as well as a truck yard in the state, but it is now seeking to occupy a next-generation facility being built by Nevada-based developer Dermody Properties on the old automotive manufacturing plant site.

Oops: Intelligence Official 'Misled' Lawmakers About Russia Helping Trump Win Re-election

The top election security official for the intelligence community, Shelby Pierson, reportedly misled members of the House Intelligence Committee during a briefing on Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2020 election, with the goal of helping President Donald Trump, according to three national security officials familiar with the matter as well as National Security Adviser Robert O'Brien.

Pierson reportedly told lawmakers that Russia was interfering in the 2020 election with the aim of helping President Trump win re-election, despite no evidence suggesting that was Russia's intention. Concerns over the lack of evidence backing Pierson's claim were raised in response to a New York Times' report about the intelligence briefing, making vague assertions that Russia's efforts were intended to help the president's bid for re-election. Members of the intelligence community are now saying there is no evidence to back up Pierson's claim.

'Biggest event they've ever had,' Donald Trump brags he'll hold India's largest gathering as he and Melania jet off for state visit where Prime Minister Modi spent $14 million to hide slums and clean up neighborhoods first couple will see

President Trump said on Sunday he will have the 'biggest event they've ever had in India' when he holds a rally at the world's largest cricket stadium as part of his two-day visit there.

'I hear it's going to be a big event. Some people say the biggest event they've ever had in India. that's what the prime minister told me - this'll be the biggest event they've ever had. So it's going to be very exciting,' he said.

The stadium he'll visit holds 110,000 people and it remains to be seen how many will gather along the route the president will take to the event.

The president and first lady Melania departed the White House Sunday morning for their 14-hour flight across the Atlantic. Melania wore black and white stripped pants with a black turtleneck and long black coat. She also sported sunglasses and white loafers instead of her usual stiletto heels.

Chris Matthews facing calls to resign for comparing Sanders Nevada victory to Nazi invasion of France

MSNBC host Chris Matthews is facing backlash online for equating Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders's win in the 2020 Nevada Democratic caucuses to the Nazi regime's takeover of France.

During a conversation with MSNBC anchor Brian Williams Saturday night, the Hardball host likened the democratic socialist's decisive victory in Nevada to the Nazi's victory over France in World War II.

"I was reading last night, Brian — I know that you're a history guy — I'm reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940," Matthews said. "And the general, Reynaud, calls up Churchill and says, 'It's over.' And Churchill says, 'How can it be? You've got the greatest army in Europe. How can it be over?' He said, 'It's over.'"

Trump: I Wasn't Told Russia Was Helping Sanders

President Donald Trump said Sunday that he has never been briefed about Russian efforts to help Bernie Sanders win the Democratic presidential nomination and he accused the Democratic chairman of the House Intelligence Committee of leaking election security information from a classified briefing.

Sanders acknowledged on Friday that he was briefed last month by U.S. officials about Russian efforts to boost his chances to be the nominee against Trump in November.

``I read where Russia is helping Bernie Sanders," Trump told reporters before leaving on a trip to India. “Nobody said it to me. Nobody said it to me at all. Nobody briefed me about that at all. ... They leaked it.”

He accused Rep. Adam Schiff of California, the committee chairman who played a lead role in Trump's impeachment, of leaking information from a classified briefing.

Democratic panic over Sanders reaches fever pitch as socialist candidate cements front-runner status

Tensions between Democratic Party loyalists and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are reaching a boiling point as the democratic socialist cemented his front-runner status for the party's 2020 presidential nomination.

Ahead of his decisive victory in the Nevada caucuses, Sanders tweeted out a message that has been a central theme in his campaign: "I've got news for the Republican establishment. I've got news for the Democratic establishment. They can't stop us."

Such a message, though pivotal to his campaign and adorned by his supporters, sparked anger among traditional Democrats across media and politics. With strong Sanders showings in the early voting state contests so far, multiple candidates in the Democratic field have begun ripping the Vermont senator for his ideology of socialism, which they claim is not representative of the public.

'Haven't seen that analysis': National security adviser contradicts reports on Russia helping Trump reelection

National security adviser Robert O'Brien disputed reports on intelligence officials warning House lawmakers of Russia's attempts to interfere in the 2020 presidential election to the benefit of President Trump.

Details from a secret briefing given to the House Intelligence Committee leaked this week alleging that legislators were told that "Russia was interfering in the 2020 campaign to try to get President Trump reelected." O'Brien, however, said that he hasn't seen any intelligence reports corroborating the claim during a Saturday interview with ABC News's George Stephanopoulos.

"I haven't seen any intelligence that Russia is doing anything to attempt to get President Trump reelected," O'Brien said, calling the rumor a "nonstory."

Annapolis Democrats offer a Record Shattering Tax Increase Plan

This past week, Maryland House Democrats proposed the largest tax increase in the state’s history, a $2.6 billion sales tax increase on services. As Governor Hogan observed, it would cost $1,700 per Maryland household annually.

The Democratic-sponsored bill, HB 1628, had been introduced by House Majority Leader Eric G. Luedtke (D-Montgomery).

The plan would extend the state’s sales tax to a broad range of consumer and business services. Maryland employers paying the services sales taxes would be placed at a competitive disadvantage against firms in nearby states that don’t tax services. None of the states bordering Maryland currently tax services.

A state services sales tax penalizes small and fledgling businesses. Smaller businesses typically must rely on outside services (payroll, legal, accounting, etc.) which would be subject to the tax. Larger companies, however, that can perform identical functions in-house would not have any sales tax costs added to their expenses.

Salisbury Maryland Mayor Jake Day Tells Blacks To "GET OUT"!

In a scathing video release Mayor Jake Day very clearly states that the racists that wrote graffiti at Salisbury University need to GET OUT! Little did the Idiot know that while the rest of the local media is clueless, it was a BLACK man who is being charged with what they are now calling a crime. 
It was a BLACK woman who created the last form of graffiti and interestingly enough it wasn't considered a CRIME, nor was the entire University shut down for a day either. 

Something isn't passing the smell test and inquiring minds want to know, just what did it cost to close down the entire University?

I'll add, will the Mayor and Police Chief's stand tall and call the BLACK community RACISTS? Will they start removing BLACKS from Salisbury? I'm telling you, this reminds me of Obama and his jumping the gun passing judgment on people before the police could do their due diligence, Travon Martin ad others. 

I wonder if the Mayor will now come after me for this exact post calling ME a racist? Yet it was his words and his demands to GET OUT. Well, you know how these Idiot and radical Libtards work.

Watch the video.

Maryland Town Threatening 60 Days Jail Time For Revving Engines

The “Cruisin’ Weekend” event that takes place in Ocean City, Maryland every year has turned into one of the biggest gearhead car gatherings on the East Coast. However, the city never intended for it to be such a huge ordeal.

Over the years, laws have been passed to control the situation. Essentially, they seem aimed at drivers who act out or cause a scene, which makes sense. However, the newest proposed law, Senate Bill 878, seems like it might be a bit much.

State Senator Mary Beth Carozza introduced the bill which includes under exhibition driving operating a vehicle in a manner that produces abrupt acceleration or deceleration, skidding, swerving, raucous engine noise, gear grinding or wheels losing contact with the ground. Violations could result in 60 days jail time, a fine of $1,000 or both. Essentially, town authorities could send drivers to jail for quickly accelerating or deceleration among other offenses.

A Message From Mayor Jake Day


Hi, this is Mayor Jake Day, and this is an open message to the good, innocent, and diverse students, faculty and staff of Salisbury University. You are our neighbors just south of our city, and we love you, we embrace you, and we want you here. The formal process that the University and the federal authorities have to go through to investigate this latest incident of domestic terrorism, and hold accountable the reprehensible racists who attempt to stoke fear and spread hatred, is their responsibility, but we will support it in any way we can. I have faith that those in charge will handle the process professionally. What I’m concerned with is this…

Racists: You have no home here in our community. Get out. Hate: You have no home here. Get out. Misogyny, bigotry… Get out.

When you’re on the correct side of humanity, you don’t need to slink around in stairwells, too afraid of being accountable for opinions that you can’t own publicly. So, to those of you without hate in your heart – whatever your race, gender, religion, or identity; wherever you’re from, and whomever you love… This is your town, and I’ve got your back. These streets are your streets. Come see for yourself at the Pride festival or Haitian Flag Day, Carnivale, Mizzlefest or the National Folk Festival. This City, and the students who call us home, whether temporarily or for a lifetime, is united in celebration of the increasing diversity and inclusivity we see here.

So I proclaim this: In every stairwell, in every corner, in every forum, and at every opportunity, ALL are welcome here.


Remember This???

BREAKING NEWS: Wicomico County States Attorneys Office Expected To Produce Major News Tomorrow On SPD Theft

Put your seat belts on Folks because the story SBYNews broke about the theft from the evidence room at the Salisbury Police Department is, (as I'm told) about to go national. 

We've been told by multiple sources Officers are involved and it's even been mentioned this could go as far as the States Attorneys Office as well. 

Officers have already been suspended, according to sources and there's allegedly more to come. We are expecting to see some sort of press release tomorrow and or a press conference. 

It's a shame other news sources continue to hide and or attempt to cover up these major stories but I've been saying it for years, they're bought and paid for by advertisers and municipalities. Jake Day and Chief Barbara Duncan need to be removed. Just look at how pampered all parties involved in the Mayors Wife's case have treated that situation and that too goes all the way up to the States Attorneys Office. 

Salisbury Maryland is crooked AND corrupt, period. Time to drain the swamp!

A Comment Worthy Of A Post: Wicomico County for 2nd Amendment Sanctuary

Joe, This is not a comment for this thread just wanted to see if you knew about this or could shine a light on it on your page. but this is located on Facebook as a group called "Wicomico County for 2A Sanctuary". Its building with membership pretty fast. There is another one called Eastern shore for 2A Sanctuary as well. it has grown by 1.5k members in less than 48 hours. They need help putting out their message.

PUBLISHERS NOTES: It should be known that I have in fact contacted the County Executive months ago referencing this matter asking that he consider such a proposal. I'm glad to see and even help in any way with this goal.

A Comment Worthy Of A Post 2-19-20

SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT.


I GO TO THE GROCERY STORE AND BUY A LB. OF SLICED HAM WRAPPED IN PLASTIC, A LOAF OF BREAD IN A PLASTIC BAG, A GALLON OF MILK IN A PLASTIC JUG, A PACK OF NAPKINS WRAPPED IN PLASTIC, A GREEK SALAD IN A PLASTIC CONTAINER, A PLASTIC BOTTLE OF MUSTARD AND A PLASTIC BOTTLE OF KETCHUP, AND THE WON’T GIVE ME HAVE A PLASTIC BAG TO CARRY IT HOME IN BECAUSE THE PLASTIC BAG IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?

BREAKING NEWS: Drag Queen Story Time At Pittsville Library Now Canceled, BUT THERE'S MORE!

Thanks to so many negative calls and by unpopular demand the Pittsville Library, (ON SCHOOL PROPERTY) has been cancelled. 

HOWEVER, here's the kicker. The Downtown Salisbury Wicomico County Library Director is adamant about hosting a Drag Queen Story Telling during Salisbury Maryland Mayor Jake Day's Gay Pride Parade in June of 2020. Sources tell me she is aggressively freaking out about concerned people totally against such an event.

If I were the County Executive I'd tell that Director to not only pound sand, I'd cut off ALL funding above and beyond what the state requires. Enough is enough of this crap and it needs to be stopped immediately. These are OUR tax dollars funding YOUR Library. Funny how Muir Boda is on the board at the Library and it closely tied with Jake Day. Sources are also telling me that some board members haven't even been made aware of this happening in June. 

On a final note, don't you people find it interesting how ALL of your local media aside from me refuse to expose ANY of this. The Pittsville event was REAL. You heard nothing from your local media and all of you know damn well they all follow Salisbury News like a hawk and have said NOTHING about it. In my opinion I know they called the Library Director about the Pittsville reading and either they didn't ask about the Salisbury event OR the Library Director never said anything about the Salisbury event. I have CONFIRMED both!

'Disgrace to my country': Neil Young pens scathing letter to Trump and endorses Bernie Sanders

Musician Neil Young attacked President Trump and endorsed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for president in an open letter on Thursday.

"You are a disgrace to my country," Young, who was born in Canada but received his U.S. citizenship this year after living in the United States for 54 years, wrote on his website. "Your mindless destruction of our shared natural resources, our environment and our relationships with friends around the world is unforgivable."

Young mentioned former President Barack Obama, who, he told Trump, "was a better man than you are."

The rock star said alluded to Sanders, saying he gives "answers I like" on the country's various issues.

Request to rename 'Negro Mountain' in Western MD to be heard in Annapolis

BALTIMORE (WBFF) - State Del. Nick Mosby, who represents Baltimore, has introduced a resolution to rename a mountain in western Maryland.

Negro Mountain is a long ridge of the Allegheny mountains that runs through Garrett County.

After concerns were raised about the racially-based name, the State Highway Administration removed signs for Negro Mountain last year.

Mosby's bill would create a commission to research the mountain's history "and assign a more appropriate name which will correctly address the history of the land."

Md. bill would ban plastic carryout bags from stores

ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Plastic carryout bags would essentially be a thing of the past in Maryland if a bill in the General Assembly gathers enough lawmakers’ votes.

The bill would ban plastic carryout bags at the “point of sale” next year in July, require stores to charge customers a 10 cent fee per “durable” carryout bag — like paper bags — money that retailers would keep, and create a “Single-Use Products Workgroup,” according to a state legislative analysis.

At a bill hearing Feb. 11 in the House Environment and Transportation Committee, Delegate Jerry Clark, R-Calvert and St. Mary’s, asked the bill’s sponsor, Delegate Brooke Lierman, D-Baltimore, whether paper bags are better for the environment than plastic bags.

Lierman said paper bags are better, though the goal of her bill is to encourage bringing reusable bags to stores, limiting overall waste.

“You don’t go to the store without forgetting your wallet, and if we move this forward we won’t go to the stores without remembering our bags because people don’t want to pay (a bag fee),” Lierman said.

Comey urges Barr to put DOJ reputation above 'angry, vindictive president'

Former FBI Director James Comey called on Attorney General William Barr to place the reputation of the Justice Department above the wishes of President Trump.

"I have heard Barr say he doesn’t care about his legacy. Maybe not, but he should care about the reservoir," Comey wrote in an opinion piece published by the Washington Post on Tuesday. "The people of [the Justice Department] depend upon it. He should care enough about them — and the rest of us — to protect this vital American asset. The reputation of the Justice Department is more important than any of us, even an angry, vindictive president."

Barr has come under intense criticism since he intervened in the case of longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone, reversing course on a heavy sentencing recommendation.

Boy Scouts Of America Files For Bankruptcy

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for bankruptcy, a sign of the century-old organization's financial instability as it faces some 300 lawsuits from men who say they were sexually abused as scouts.

The Boy Scouts have been exploring the possibility of bankruptcy since at least December 2018, when they hired a law firm for a possible Chapter 11 filing.

Amid high-profile sexual abuse scandals in organizations from the Catholic Church to USA Gymnastics, some states have changed their laws to allow more time for victims of sexual abuse to sue their perpetrators. That has brought a wave of new lawsuits from victims whose cases were prevented previously by statutes of limitations.

More than 1,100 ex-DOJ officials demand Barr resign for doing Trump's 'personal bidding'

Hundreds of former Department of Justice employees have signed an open letter calling for Attorney General William Barr to resign.

Over 1,100 former DOJ prosecutors and officials signed a letter posted on Medium on Sunday condemning Barr and President Trump over the department’s decision to intervene in the case of longtime GOP operative Roger Stone.

"Each of us strongly condemns President Trump’s and Attorney General Barr’s interference in the fair administration of justice," the letter reads.

The DOJ announced on Tuesday that it would seek a lower sentence than the one recommended by the prosecutors working Stone’s case who sought a prison sentence of up to nine years. The letter accuses Barr of doing Trump’s "personal bidding" in intervening in the case.

Salisbury University: Messsages From the President

EDITOR'S NOTE: Below you will find 3 different message from the President of Salisbury University.  Click 'READ MORE' to view them all




Tonight, our campus is under attack by a coward. Not one but multiple racist threats are being directed at Black and Brown members of OUR community. An attack on some members of our campus community is an attack on all of us, and we all need to respond.

I know these crimes have frightened members of our campus community, particularly Black and Brown students, faculty and staff. I am appalled by these vile acts which are not welcome on OUR campus and do not represent our values.

I made the decision to cancel classes to give us all the opportunity to come together to process what we are experiencing, support each other and figure out how we can move forward together as a community.

The SUPD continues to work with the FBI and allied law enforcement agencies to ensure the safety and security of all members of our campus community. Since the first discovery of racist graffiti, we have taken every measure toward bringing the cowardly criminal or criminals to justice. We will not allow this to define us.

“I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Let Up”: Governor Hogan Discusses Violent Crime Crisis on WBAL

“I’m Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Let Up”Governor Hogan Discusses Violent Crime Crisis on WBAL
“If you want to talk about a life and death matter, it’s doing something about the people that are actually getting shot and killed on the streets of Baltimore.”
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Hogan appeared live on WBAL’s “The C4 Show” to discuss the need to pass his legislation to address the violent crime crisis in Baltimore City. Here are excerpts from his interview: 
“I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to let up...I’m as frustrated as anyone else because I have been trying to do something for five years but I’m not getting a whole lot of support and not getting a lot of folks that are actually focused on the real problem.”
---
“A headline in today's Sun says it's a matter of life and death if we don't pass this $33 billion increase in spending on schools. Well, you know, we can talk about what we're going to do with schools over the next 10 years. We have some of the best and the most highly funded schools in America. We obviously all want to see improvements in our schools, but if you want to talk about a life and death matter, it’s doing something about the people that are actually getting shot and killed on the streets of Baltimore. We have a tough crime package that we submitted to the legislature that nearly everyone in the city supports, everyone in the state supports, which we can talk about. Instead, for 42 days, the legislature has ignored that legislation. Just since they've been in session, 38 more people have been killed and 59 more people have been shot while they've done nothing about crime.”
---
“I'm going to keep hammering this, not because I want to disagree or have a fight with them, but because I want to stop people from being killed in the city. We have more people murdered in Baltimore City, we have 600,000 people, than in New York City with 8,600,000 people. We’re the murder capital of America. I mean, it's crazy.”
---
“We have a bill to toughen penalties for those who intimidate witnesses, because one of the problems is people will see a shooting in broad daylight but they're afraid, understandably so...they're afraid of retribution. And people are being intimidated. So we have a bill that toughens penalties for those who intimidate witnesses, 91% support statewide...There's not a soul in Baltimore City who is against this witness intimidation bill. And yet, not a single city leader has come out in favor of it, not a single city legislator has signed onto our bill, and the legislature has done nothing for 42 days.”

Is Salisbury Maryland Mayor Jake Day Purposely Driving Attention Away From Missing Evidence At Police Department?

While young college students do very stupid things at times, Salisbury has seen some pretty horrific things that we have published over the years but as the link above will show, NOTHING gets done about such racist crimes. Remember this?
Point being, there's a major issue going on right now that I believe Jake Day and Barbara Duncan are skirting away from. It was Salisbury News who broke the news about all the evidence missing from storage at the SPD. Within 2 days of our exposure a press release came out but YOU do not know the extent of this investigation.

A very reliable source informed me there may in fact be Officers involved. The Police Chief and Mayor want you to believe this is all civilian employee driven. What you also do not know is the massive expense of this investigation. It has to be handled by outside sources such as investigators, attorneys and auditors. The City, (meaning you taxpayers) will have to foot the bill. What you also don't know is that they will have to go back possibly decades and interview every person in every case to find out what evidence was involved in each case and compare that to what is left in the police departments inventory. Do you have ANY idea what that will involve? This investigation could take years. 

So all of a sudden there's some graffiti at the University and Jake Day runs with it like it's domestic terrorism. He cries about how we can't keep college students here after they graduate but then goes on to imply these students are just as important as all of you as taxpayers. When I watched that video all I could think is, this guy is calling me all kinds of names because I disagree with his LGBT agenda. Well not for nothing Jake but I did GET OUT. I'm not a racist, homophobe or any of the other names you called out. What does it say when a Mayor invites freaks, (grown adult men in dresses) to a public library to read to innocent children! Believe me if I could get Eric the Barber and Sam's Club to come to Worcester County I'd never come to Salisbury again. 

In the mean time, Salisbury News will not drop the investigation with the Salisbury Police Department and it will stay at the top of our radar screen while you try to deflect such attention towards the University instead. It's a load of crap as proven in the above link.
