President Trump Blasts “Dirty Cops” in US Intel Agencies and “Sleazebag, Wacko” John Brennan – Brennan Takes the Bait and Responds

Trump started off by blasting John Bolton then turned his ire toward Comey, Clapper and Brennan, the architects of Spygate.

The President called fired FBI Director James Comey and former DNI chief James Clapper “dirty cops” and slammed former CIA Director John Brennan as a sleazebag and “wacko.”

'Case closed': New evidence Ilhan Omar married her brother

Likely 'the most extensive spree of felonies by a congressperson in U.S. history'

The evidence uncovered over the past several years that U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., married her brother in an immigration-fraud scheme has been compelling.

But now investigative reporter David Steinberg believes the case is closed, presenting new evidence that her father and the father of her former husband are one and the same.

The new evidence surfaced, Steinberg wrote for The Blaze, when Omar's father died in June from complications from a COVID-19 infection and condolences came from the Somali immigrant community of Minneapolis and around the world.

Steinberg explained that when Omar's father arrived in the United States in 1995, he claimed to be "Nur Omar Mohamed" and received a Social Security number with that name. Steinberg previously reported that Ilhan and some members of her family entered the U.S. fraudulently as members of another family that had been granted asylum, the Omars. The congresswoman's name at birth was Ilhan Nur Said Elmi.

ADDRESSING THE OPIOID EPIDEMIC DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC

(August 11, 2020, Salisbury, MD) As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the entire United States, it is important to remain vigilant in our efforts to address the opioid epidemic in our community. Unfortunately, since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen increasing numbers of overdoses, not only in our community, but across the nation as a whole. In an article published by The Washington Post on July 1, 2020, it was reported that “nationwide, suspected drug overdoses rose 18% in March, 29% in April and 42% in May when compared to numbers from 2019 (Get Smart About Drugs, 2020).” This information has been provided by the nationwide overdose detecting application, ODMAP.

“Although we cannot be sure what has specifically contributed to the increase in overdoses, we know that lack of support systems, loss of jobs, added stressors, isolation and limited access to treatment has made recovery much more difficult, and has led to relapses,” states Lori Brewster, Wicomico County Health Officer. Although numbers are still preliminary at this time, it appears as though we have surpassed year to date overdoses, when compared to this time period from 2019.

It is now more important than ever to remember that there are resources available to assist those battling the disease of addiction, as well as their family members. Some of these resources are as follows:

·       Community Outreach Addictions Team (COAT)- 24/7 access to peers in recovery assisting with linkages to resources and treatment for those battling addiction- (443) 783-6875
·       Safe Station- Open 24/7 for individuals seeking treatment and recovery services, located at 726 S. Salisbury Blvd. Salisbury, MD 21804 or call (443) 783-6875
·       Wicomico County Health Department- Contact the Local Behavioral Health Authority for a list of treatment providers in Wicomico County (410) 543-6981
·       Maryland Coalition of FamiliesDedicated to serving families with behavioral health needs, including mental health, substance use and gambling issues. Main office: (410) 730-8267 or Email:info@mdcoalition.org
·       Recovery Resource Center (RRC)- Offering meetings and support for those looking to start or continue their journey to recovery-located at 726 S. Salisbury Blvd. Salisbury, MD 21804

***Please note that there are many other resources available in the county, and this is just a brief list.***

Wicomico County Health Department is also offering contactless Naloxone trainings and delivery at this time. Naloxone, also sold under the brand name Narcan, is an opioid overdose reversal medication.

 If you or someone you love is currently struggling with an addiction, please contact (443) 783- 6875 or (410) 543-6981 to obtain this medication, or contact your local pharmacy. For more information about the opioid epidemic and local resources, connect with the health department at www.wicomicohealth.org or through our social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram (WicomicoHealth) or Twitter (@WicomicoHealth).  

Biden's hideous plan to make family life in suburbs unbearably miserable

Would use federal housing policy to 'alter local regulations'

President Trump recently decided to rescind the Obama administration’s Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing (AFFH) rule, which put pressure on suburbs to construct more low-income, high-density housing in their communities. Trump’s decision met with a predictable outcry. “It’s not even a dog whistle anymore,” Connecticut senator Chris Murphy tweeted. “Our President is now a proud, vocal segregationist.”

Somehow, Democrats still see the suburbs as racially homogenized, lily-white enclaves — something they haven’t been for a long time. According to demographer Joel Kotkin and urban studies professor Alan Berger, 151 million Americans live in the suburbs and exurbs, compared with only 25 million in urban cores. A majority of African-Americans in the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas live in the suburbs. More Hispanics have been moving to the suburbs than whites, and the Asian population in suburban areas is growing nearly twice as fast as that of Asians living in inner-city cores.

JOE BIDEN JUST GOT TRUMP REELECTED WITH KAMALA HARRIS PICK

Trump campaign labels Biden VP Kamala Harris as a 'phony', ’Biden’s ‘political living will’

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s re-election campaign on Tuesday lashed Joe Biden’s running mate Kamala Harris as a “phony” who buried her prosecutorial record in order to “appease the anti-police extremists controlling the Democrat Party,” and the Democratic candidate’s “political living will.”

Trump also tweeted a brutal campaign video dubbing the duo “Slow Joe” and “Phony Kamala” in a preview of the battle to unfold over the next 86 days before the November election.

The opening salvo came just minutes after the Democratic nominee announced the senator from California as his vice president.

“Not long ago, Kamala Harris called Joe Biden a racist and asked for an apology she never received,” Katrina Pierson, Trump 2020 senior advisor, said in a statement, referring to a tense exchange the two shared on the Democratic debate stage in June.

"Financially Devastated" - 83% of NYC Restaurants unable to pay July Rent

The state of the New York City restaurant industry is in dire straits. July proved to be another disastrous month for restaurants, bars, and nightlife establishments across the city with a majority unable to pay rent in July, a new survey found.

NYC Hospitality Alliance surveyed about 500 owners and operators of eateries in the city, with 83% of respondents indicating they couldn't pay the entire rent in July while 37% paid no rent at all.

"Restaurants and nightlife venues are essential to the economic and social fabric of our city, but they are struggling to survive and absent immediate and sweeping relief so many will be forced to close permanently," said Andrew Rigie, executive director of The Alliance.

"While complying with the necessary pause, our industry has been uniquely and financially devasted. Small businesses urgently need solutions from government leaders at the city, state, and federal level, inclusive of extending the moratorium on evictions, extending the suspension of personal liability guarantees in leases, pausing commercial rent taxes, providing landlords with needed support, and infusing small businesses with enough cash to weather the storm," Rigie said.

To make matters worse, 71% of owners and operators said landlords "would not waive portions of rent due to COVID-19." About 61% said, landlords "would not defer rent payments," while 90% of landlords "would not formally renegotiate leases."

Indoor dining in the city remains halted, "outdoor dining service is not generating sufficient revenue to cover rent and other expenses, small business owners in the industry continue to express significant concerns about surviving the pandemic and staying viable in the future," said The Alliance.

Through July, OpenTable restaurant data reveals foot traffic at eateries remains depressed.

Republicans furious as Democrats leave town with no Deal

Republicans in Congress are furious that Democrats left town after failing to reach a deal with them on a phase 4 coronavirus stimulus package.

President Donald Trump signed four executive orders Saturday in order to help the unemployed and the economy, effectively bypassing congress to send money to Americans. Democrats had already left town, and didn’t hesitate to criticize the president’s executive orders.

This comes after House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced in late July that the House would remain in session until a deal on a stimulus package is reached, but that did not happen. There are now no House votes until Sept. 14, and members will have 24 hours notice to return for any votes related to coronavirus.

Trump’s first order establishes a payroll tax cut holiday from August 1, 2020 through the end of the year. The second would direct the Department of Housing and Urban Development and other federal agencies to forbid evictions. The third order establishes a $400-per-week addition to the paycheck protection program for workers. The fourth will help give relief for Americans’ student loans.

Wallace Won't Let Pelosi Forget Congress Failed to Compromise on a Coronavirus Relief Package

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made her rounds on Sunday talk shows to discuss President Donald Trump's Wuhan coronavirus Executive Orders that he signed on Saturday. According to the speaker, Trump's moves are "unconstitutional slop" and do very little to address the American peoples' needs.

"While it has the illusion of saying we're going to have a moratorium on evictions, it says, 'I'm gonna ask the folks in charge to study if that's feasible.' While he says he's going to do the payroll tax, what he's doing is undermining Social Security and Medicare, so these are illusions," she explained. "These are illusions."

According to the speaker, Democrats' bill would address food insecurity, while Republicans' bill would not. She also stated that Trump's EOs don't address other issues, like school reopenings.

Fox News' Chris Wallace reminded Pelosi that having no bill doesn't provide any kind of relief, while Trump's EO provides something.

"You're known as a 'master negotiator,' but didn't you mess this one up?" Wallace asked. "You talk about all the things that the president's bill ... now, because there's no deal at all, cities and states won't get any money. There's no money for the post office. There's no money for hospitals. There's no money for state boards of election."

"You knew that the president was threatening to take executive action. I understand that you weren't going to get everything you wanted, should you have cut a deal and are you ready to go back into talks to try to come up with a fuller package?" the Fox host asked.

Pelosi stated that the president's EOs doesn't provide funding for the things he wants funded. Instead, it implements a "complicated formula" that's used to get money to Americans.

Truth Is, Biden Never Had a Firm Grip on Reality

Near the end of last year, I casually joked on my podcast that watching Joe Biden campaign was like watching a public service announcement about elder abuse. As with all good humor, it was based in truth, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized just how much truth there was in that joke. But there’s more truth in it than I realized because Joe has not only been the butt of the joke, but he’s also been in on it the whole time.

That Biden has lost a step isn’t in dispute. Anyone as old as he is has lost a step. But it’s not just a step Joe has lost; he’s lost a staircase, even several flights. The question is: is it dementia?

The thing about Joe Biden is, he’s never had a firm grip on reality. Perhaps not in the “mental decline” sense, but in a very real sense nonetheless.

Everyone is the hero of their own story, but Joe is the super-hero who saves the planet on a regular basis. All throughout his career, when talking about himself, he embellished and flat-out lied in ways that made himself look “more” than he was.

Sometimes he lied for sympathy, as in the case of the tragic death of his first wife and daughter, which he has claimed involved a drunk driver. But no alcohol was involved. And sometimes he lied to simply make himself seem involved, like when he claimed to have participated in the Civil Rights Movement when he did not.

Nancy Pelosi Admits On CNN: "China Would Prefer Joe Biden"

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi just admitted during a live interview on CNN's "State of the Union" that the threats posed by Russia and China during the upcoming presidential election "aren't equivalent" - because Russia is pulling for Trump, and China is pulling for Biden.

In an interview that was notably thin on details and heavy on rhetoric, Pelosi insisted that the American people's lack of an "understanding" about the reality of "foreign influence" in US elections is unquestionably the Trump Administration's fault. While administration officials, including the head of the FBI, have spoken out about steps being taken by the administration to root out foreign interference, Pelosi dismissed these attempts as not nearly hysteria-inducing enough.

While Pelosi couldn't give out too many details - "I can't divulge information that's classified" - but insinuated that this is part of an international plot to bend the election, just like last time.

But at one point, Pelosi accidentally let slip that Russia isn't the only state actor trying to influence the election. China is ramping up its efforts, too. And while Russia is standing by its man, China is pouring resources into pulling for Joe Biden (just like the rest of the American mainstream media).

"China would prefer Joe Biden..but .Russia is actively 24/7 interfering in our election, they did so in 2016 and they're doing so now, and [the administration says] that to a certain extent, but they need to tell the people more."

Air Force Helicopter Shot At Over Virginia, Injuring Crew Member

The FBI is investigating the incident, involving a helicopter assigned to President Donald Trump’s support detail.

AN AIR FORCE HELICOPTER operating over Virginia on Monday was reportedly shot at, injuring one member of the crew and prompting an FBI investigation.

The UH-1N Huey helicopter, assigned to Joint Base Andrews just outside of Washington, D.C., was conducting a routine training flight roughly 1,000 feet above the ground before it was forced to make an emergency landing at an airport in nearby Manassas, Virginia, after being struck by a bullet, an Air Force spokesperson tells U.S. News. The helicopter is assigned to the 1st Helicopter Squadron, which supports the movement of the president and other senior government officials to and from Andrews, where Air Force One is also based.

The FBI dispatched special agents and its Evidence Response Team to the airport after receiving reports about the shooting, its Washington Field Office said in a statement provided to U.S. News. It is currently conducting a joint investigation with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations and local law enforcement agencies.

Joe Biden: ‘Michael Brown’s Life Was Taken in Ferguson’

CNN’s Stelter: ‘Offensive and Otherworldly’ for ‘Right-Wing’ Radio Hosts to Question Biden’s Health

Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” anchor Brian Stelter said it is “offensive and otherworldly” for “right-wing” talk radio hosts to question the state of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee former Vice President Joe Biden’s mental and physical health.

Stelter said, “Let’s go on a trip together to a totally alternative universe. You never hear what’s happening there unless you tune in to right-wing talk radio, but you need to know what they are saying because the most popular, most powerful talkers in the country have trained their sights on Joe Biden. What you are about to hear them say is mind-boggling. Look, whether you like Biden or not, this stuff is offensive and otherworldly.”

In a clip, Rush Limbaugh said, “The contrast in knowledge of events and issues, mental acuity, the contrast between Trump and Biden is striking. That is why they are keeping Biden in the basement.”

Sunfest Unlikely, Alternative SunLITE Event Proposed

OCEAN CITY — Sunfest as residents and visitors have grown to know and love over the years remains a long-shot for this year, but a modified SunLITE event with vendors spread out in venues all over the south end of the town could be a viable replacement this fall.

On Tuesday, Mayor and Council members resumed their conversation about the fate of Sunfest in October. Last week, the town’s elected officials debated the merits of keeping the fall signature event in the midst of a pandemic despite the recent stabilization in some of the key metrics.

The decision was tabled last week in order to see more guidance from state officials and the county health department and to see if the contract with the tent vendor could be reworked in order to save some money on what will be a revenue-challenged event this year for all stakeholders. During Tuesday’s work session, Special Events Director Frank Miller presented some new information that has arisen since the council met last week.

$450,000 Income Tax Lien Filed Against UNEMPLOYED Hunter Biden Last Month Was “Resolved” in 6 Days with No Explanation From Team Biden

Hunter Biden was hit with a huge tax lien last month over delinquent state income taxes and he magically “resolved” it in 6 days even though he has no income.

A $450,000 tax lien was filed against Hunter in July and within 6 days, the unemployed “broke” father of 5 was able to “resolve” it within 6 days.

It is unclear if Hunter Biden actually paid off the tax lien.

Hunter Biden must have received special treatment from the government because it could take several months or even years to clear up or negotiate a payment plan for such a large tax lien.

College admissions scandal CEO whines upstate prison is ‘torture,’ wants release

An ex-financial firm CEO who was sent to an upstate New York prison for his role in the college admissions scandal is asking to be set free — because life behind bars is “torture.”

Ex-Pimco honcho Douglas Hodge — who paid more than $850,000 in bribes to get his kids into elite universities — is demanding to be allowed to serve the remainder of his 9-month sentence at home, theBoston Herald reported.

In his bid for “compassionate release,” Hodge, 62, argues that being locked up amid the pandemic is “torture under United Nations guidelines,” according to according to court documents cited by the paper.

Hodge checked into federal prison in Otisville on June 23 — and claims he was forced to suffer through 29 days of solitary quarantine, according to the report. He claims his sentence should either be reduced, or that he should be allowed to do time at his personal pad.

Whistleblower Exposes "The Spies Who Hijacked America"

Global scandals now labeled Russiagate, Spygate, and what President Trump calls “Obamagate” shook the political world, but hit me closer to home.

I’m the reason the so-called FBI “spy” at the center of Spygate, Stefan Halper, met Carter Page, the alleged “Russian Asset” in Russiagate’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation.

On May 19, 2018, this realization blindsided me in London as I was about to fly out for my wedding. The New York Times, NBC News and other sources had outed my PhD supervisor, Stefan Halper, as a spy known to the UK’s MI6 intelligence service as “The Walrus.”

It didn’t seem real. Could a former professor I once trusted as a mentor have betrayed his word, profession, and country to start these disasters? I had moved to England to pursue an academic career and leave DC’s politics behind, only to have my PhD supervisor throw me back into the most outrageous political firestorms I could imagine. Just my luck. Then an even worse question began nagging at me. Did I unintentionally light the match that started it all?

As I started to piece together what happened over the next few months, I realized something. The stories that The New York Times, Washington Post,and others were pushing didn’t add up. Many seemed planted to cover up or advance the agendas of several individuals whose tentacles secretly ran through these scandals, and who each had longstanding ties to intelligence services like the FBI, CIA, and MI6. I call these individuals the Cambridge Four.

NYC 'illegally' housing pedophiles near Upper West Side playground

The city dumped at least six homeless pedophiles, all still on parole, at a luxury Upper West Side hotel just a block from an elementary-school playground — an apparent violation of state law, online records show.

The outrage is only the latest slap in the face to residents of the Manhattan neighborhood — who as The Post reported have had to deal with everything from public urination to open drug use since the city began moving hundreds of homeless into the area amid the coronavirus.

“Completely unacceptable,” seethed Sabina Popovic, 32, who was at the playground with her daughter, 5, and son, 1, Friday.

The six parolees — including a man who had forced sex with a 4-year-old girl — were listed by the state Sex Offender Registry as current residents of the Belleclaire hotel at Broadway and West 77th Street as of Friday night.

The hotel is just under 1,000 feet from the playground of PS 87 — and New York state law bars such high-risk sex offenders on probation or parole from “knowingly entering into or upon” schools or other facilities or other facilities “primarily used” by children if a minor is present. Courts have interpreted that to mean they must keep 1,000 feet away.

Senate Chairman Subpoenas FBI Director Wray For Russiagate Records; Puts Bidens On Notice Over Ukraine Dealings

The subpoena was issued by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) as part of his investigation into the origins of Russiagate. It gives Wray until 5 p.m. on Aug. 20 to produce the documents.

Johnson also released a lengthy letter on Monday in which he defended his Committee's investigation and accused Democrats of initiating "a coordinated disinformation campaign and effort to personally attack" himself and Sen.
