“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.”

James Madison

“It is no coincidence that the century of total war coincided with the century of central banking.”
Ron Paul, End the Fed

Gun Control Regulations Approved

One week from tomorrow Maryland's new gun control law takes effect.
Among other things, the law bans 45 different types of weapons, limits magazine clips to 10 rounds, and requires gun buyers to submit fingerprints to the Maryland State Police.
Now the regulations that the State Police will use to enforce the law have received final approval by a state Senate-House committee.
By a vote of 9-6, the Joint Committee on Administrative, Executive and Legislative Review (ALER) approved the regulations. 


Welfare Bill For L.A. Anchor Babies: $650 million

A projected $650 million in welfare benefits will be distributed to illegal alien parents in 2013, county officials said Monday.

Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich announced the latest figures from the Department of Public Social Services, which showed more than $376 million in CalWORKs benefits and food stamps combined have been distributed through July to illegal alien parents for their native-born children.

Approximately $54 million in welfare payments are issued each month, consisting of nearly $20 million in CalWORKs and $34 million in food stamp issuances, according to the data.


Parents Upset Over School's Corporal Punishment Permission Form

Some parents at Leeds Elementary Public School in Alabama were in for a shock when their kids brought home a permission slip for corporal punishment. It stated that failure to return the form would be considered authorization for school personnel to administer the punishment.

Corporal punishment is legal in 19 states in America. Today in a debate on Fox and Friends, Peter Sprigg from the Family Research Council defended school’s actions. “There are some parents who see this as a legitimate form of punishment and are perfectly happy to delegate their authority and right to use disciplinary spanking to the school as a way of supporting the methods of discipline they use at home.”

Sprigg agreed that ultimately the decision should be left up to the parents.

'It's free food - it's awesome!': unemployed beach bum uses food stamps to buy lobster and sushi - and has no plans of getting a job

Jason Greenslate has no job, surfs and drinks when he wakes up every afternoon and has no intentions of finding employment anytime in the near future - yet, he eats lobster or gourmet sushi everyday. He owes his successful culinary mooching to one thing: food stamps.

D.C. Says It’s Ready For Obamacare’s Oct. 1 Launch; Md. Will Have Delays

New health insurance marketplaces for small businesses are scheduled to open across the country next week, and while most states are ready to begin enrollment, others have fallen behind, delaying some of the savings employers were promised under Obamacare.

District officials, for example, say all systems are go for launch for the city’s new health insurance exchange on October 1, the deadline established by the Affordable Care Act for states and the federal government to open enrollment for new, online insurance marketplaces.

While the Obama administration has pushed back for a year a mandate requiring many employers to start covering their workforces, officials have moved forward on the new insurance exchanges, which they hope will promote competition among insurers and drive down the cost of individual and employer-sponsored coverage. 


Caught on Tape: School Bus Driver Texts, Swerves With Bus Full Of Kids

Naval Academy Mulling $6 Million Golf Course Renovation

The Naval Academy is considering more than $6 million in renovations for the Naval Academy Golf Club.

Earlier this year, the academy commissioned Jessup-based McDonald Golf Inc. to review a golf course restoration plan that had been completed in 2007. McDonald presented a revised plan to academy officials two weeks ago, said Chet Gladchuk, the academy's athletic director.

A 44-page plan proposes $4.6 million in improvements to the golf course on the Broadneck Peninsula and nearly $1.9 million in improvements to practice areas. A timeline for construction proposes closing the course from early July 2014 through October 2014.

Maryland State Police say they are looking for the driver who hit and killed a pedestrian in Ocean City this past weekend.

Chrysler Files For IPO

Chrysler has filed for an initial public offering, four years after the famed automaker went bankrupt and sought a rescue from the Italian brand Fiat.

JPMorgan Chase & Co was the sole underwriter listed on the regulatory filing, which did not include a proposed price or final offering amount.


Report: Egypt Court Bans Brotherhood Activities

An Egyptian court Monday ordered a ban on activities of the Muslim Brotherhood and froze its finances, according to state-run news website EgyNews.

The move is the latest in an anti-Muslim Brotherhood crackdown that began when the military ousted President Mohamed Morsy, who was backed by the Brotherhood, in early July.

The country's Ministry of Social Solidarity said earlier this month that it was considering punishing the group, accusing it of violating a law regulating non-governmental groups, EgyNews reported. The law prohibits such groups from operating as political organizations and forming militias.


Benghazi Investigators Gave Hillary Clinton Heads-Up On Findings

The leaders of the State Department’s Benghazi probe defended their inquiry into the 2012 attack, but they acknowledged to Congress on Thursday that their mission was limited in scope and faced questions over why they gave Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton an advance look at their findings.

Retired Adm. Mike Mullen, vice chairman of the accountability review board, also acknowledged that he had warned Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff not to send a particular official to Congress because he thought “she would be a weak witness” who might have hurt the State Department’s stance.

Republicans said those moves called into question the motives of the review, which was supposed to be an independent look at what went wrong in the attack and how to prevent others.

“If this is so independent, why are you giving the State Department a heads-up about a witness coming in front of this committee?” said Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican. He said the warning came just days after Adm. Mullen had been appointed to the review board.


5 Years After The Financial Crisis, The Big Banks Are Still Committing Massive Crimes

You Won’t Believe What They’ve Done …

Here are just some of the improprieties by big banks over the last century (you’ll see that many shenanigans are continuing today):

Laundering money for terrorists (the HSBC employeewho blew the whistle on the banks’ money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels says that the giant bank is still laundering money, saying: “The public needs to know that money is still being funneled through HSBC to directly buy guns and bullets to kill our soldiers …. Banks financing … terrorists affects every single American.” He also said: “It is disgusting that our banks are STILL financing terror on 9/11 2013“. And see this)

Clinton Plans Second Fundraiser For Va. Gov. Candidate McAuliffe

Hillary Clinton is planning a second fundraiser for Terry McAuliffe, her longtime political associate and friend who is seeking the Democratic nomination for Virginia governor.

The former secretary of state and first lady will host a $25,000-per-couple fundraiser in New York City for McAuliffe on Oct 15, reports Politico, just two weeks after one already planned for Sept. 30.

Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have, for the most part, kept quiet politically after she stepped down as secretary of state earlier this year. For example, they waited until after New York City's primary election concluded before backing any Democratic candidates, opting to endorse winner Bill de Blasio only after he snagged the nomination.


FDA Requires Tracking Codes On Medical Implants

Federal health regulators will begin tracking millions of medical devices, from pacemakers to hip replacements, using a new electronic system designed to protect patients by catching problematic implants earlier.

The Food and Drug Administration published new rules Friday that require most medical devices sold in the U.S. to carry a unique code, identifying its make, manufacture date and lot number. The codes will be stored in a publicly accessible database to help regulators, doctors and companies monitor safety issues with devices.

The tracking system has been promoted by doctors and public safety advocates for years. Other industries, from food processors to automakers, have used unique identification codes to track their products through the supply chain for decades.


Why Swedish People Are So Quiet

STOCKHOLM, Sweden—Eight of us—six Swedes, one Finn, and me, the Nigerian-American—are gathered in a modest city-center studio apartment in Stockholm’s eclectic Södermalm district. Next to our dinner table is a small window with a gorgeous view of Stockholm’s history-rich old town, Gamla stan, with its narrow red clay, melon, and burnt-sienna-colored structures. The location alone makes this modest studio as coveted as a New York penthouse with direct views of Central Park.
Jörgen is making single cups of coffee on a mini press as we each wait silently in turn. The silence leaves me unsettled, almost feeling obliged to fill it with random chit-chat, a few words about the weather. I glance from silent guest to silent guest. Surely I can’t be the only one struck by this odd stillness?


The Real Navy Yard Scandal

It is inhumane not to treat those suffering from mental illness.

In the liberal remake of Casablanca, the police captain comes upon the scene of the shooting and orders his men to “round up the usual weapons.”

It’s always the weapon and never the shooter. Twelve people are murdered in a rampage at the Washington Navy Yard, and before sundown Senator Dianne Feinstein has called for yet another debate on gun violence. Major opprobrium is heaped on the AR-15, the semiautomatic used in the Newtown massacre.


Senate Republicans Can Stop Reid From Funding Obamacare

When Establishment Republicans and their Democrat comrades claim there is no path to victory in the fight to defund Obamacare, they are intentionally muddying the waters. Do not confuse blundering political expedience with winning.

There is a clear path to victory and the folks comprising the new Republican leadership emerging in the House and Senate are smart enough and bold enough to take that path.

They’re playing to win and deserve our support.


EPA Regulations Could Devastate Maryland Mining

The Environmental Protection Agency’s restrictions on new coal and natural gas power plants meant to reduce carbon emissions that contribute to climate change would be a disaster for Western Maryland’s coal mining business, industry representatives said.

The new regulations, announced Friday by EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, would allow new coal-powered plants to emit up to 1,100 pounds of carbon per megawatt-hour. Natural gas plants would be allowed to emit between 1,000 and 1,100 pounds of carbon per megawatt-hour, depending on their size

“They’ll have a devastating effect on us because they want to eliminate the coal-powered plants, and all of their actions will do just that,” said Adrienne Ottaviani, the executive director of the Maryland Coal Association. “It will be probably more of the coal companies in Maryland closing their doors. They just can’t continue with the regulations being placed upon them.”


CHART: Drugs That Cause The Most Harm

MOST people would agree that some drugs are worse than others: Heroin is probably considered to be more dangerous than marijuana, for instance. Because governments formulate criminal and social policies based upon classifications of harm, a study published by the Lancet on Nov., 1, 2010, makes interesting reading.

Researchers led by Professor David Nutt, a former chief drugs adviser to the British government, asked drug-harm experts to rank 20 drugs (legal and illegal) on 16 measures of harm to the user and to wider society, such as damage to health, drug dependency, economic costs and crime.


The Eastern Shore Bucks Football

The little team that could…. The Eastern Shore Bucks are a Christian varsity football program located in southern DE. This team is for homeschool, private school, and public school students in grades 9-12 who do not have access to a football program all over the Eastern Shore. Their affiliation is MACC (Mid Atlantic Christian Conference). This has been the first year for this program and their record so far is 3-2 overall with about 4 more games to play. What makes this team so amazing is that out of the 23 students on the roster only 2 of them have ever played football on a high school level yet they are making their way to the top. The students on this team come from Salisbury MD, Mardela MD, Denton MD, Centerville MD, Harrington DE, Selbyville DE, Greenwood DE and a few other towns. They have all meshed well under the leadership of Coach Dan Young to form a strong team. There are even a few players on this team that have climbed the stat ladder to become in the top 10 rankings for MD and DE. This is a team worth acknowledging. They can be found on Facebook under Eastern Shore Bucks and on MaxPreps under Eastern Shore Home School. Their last home game is this Saturday September 28th at 2pm which is also senior day. The address for this game is 6510 Hickman Road Greenwood DE 19950. The Coach is Dan Young and his contact number is 302-258-9203.


CAIRO (AP) -- An Egyptian court has banned the Muslim Brotherhood group and ordered its assets confiscated in a dramatic escalation of a crackdown by the military-backed government against supporters of the ousted Islamist president Mohammed Morsi.

Egypt state TV said the court issued its ruling on Monday.


Will The Real President Of America Stand Up To Face Fitting Punishment

NEW YORK, — One year following unmitigated disaster in Benghazi, the most opaque Administration in American history apparently believes we should be mollified by delayed and circumscribed legislative hearings.

If you are happy that the costliest government on earth can only produce a bit of distracting daytime drama, then you are easily happy. The tragedy that erupted in Benghazi was likely born much earlier in reckless support by our own government of radical Islamist groups inside and outside America. There will be much more to tell in time.

At stake are matters tantamount to treason and not just petty points of administrative error. It is more than likely that individuals in both major parties are subverting a full scope investigation to shield their own culpability—much larger questions scream out for answers.

Who Effectively Runs the Federal Government under the Obama Administration?

It would be nice if someone wanted to make some flyers on the rotteness within the core.

Facebook Blocks Founders Of Patriot Trucker Group For Saying 'God Bless America'

The administrators of the group "Truckers To Shut Down America" were temporarily booted from posting in Facebook for saying "God Bless America." On Sunday afternoon, they were finally back up and posting on their Facebook page, which has gone viral.

Today, the Examiner spoke with the group's founder, Zeeda Andrews. A former trucker herself, Andrews has tapped a nerve by calling for a "General Strike" to protest "the corruption that is destroying America." Americans who believe that the Government is trampling on theConstitution are welcome to join, regardless of party.

Today, the patriot group "Overpasses for Obama's Impeachment" offered to be out in full force, calling the effort one of their "patriot waves" to support the truckers making the trek across the nation to Washington, D.C. on the weekend of October 11-13, 2013, as reported today by the Examiner.


The 51st State, Western Maryland: How To Succeed Without Seceding

The mountain natives are restless in Maryland. They want to have it their way, though they represent just 10 percent of the state’s population.

Here are a few things that annoy them:

  • A stream of tax increases (including one on rain!) from Annapolis.
  • State restrictions that devalue their land.
  • Tougher gun-control laws.
  • A bleeding-heart law that does away with the death penalty.
  • A state law legalizing gay marriages.
  • Political map-makers who deprive them of their conservative congressman.

The Dream Machine


Annapolis, Md. - Delegate Ron George joined Anne Arundel County Executive, Laura Neuman, in the county’s first annual POW/MIA Recognition Day. The event also heard from Korean War veteran and former POW in China, Corporal James N. Diggs, who raised Anne Arundel County’s new POW/MIA flag for the first time.
“The continued pain felt by parents, spouses, children, and in later years grandchildren, is an emptiness of questions waiting to be answered,” George remarked.

There are over 83,000 POW/MIA soldiers from World War II to present. September 20th is the national POW/MIA Recognition Day.
In speaking to family members and the missing’s comrades in arms that were present, Mr. George found they all had a desire to thank their missing family members and friends for their service and to also discover the unfinished story. Answers to where they are, and of what those missing went through for their country.

George recalled, “As someone who turned 18 during the Vietnam War, I have always found it offensive how the issue of missing POW’s and MIA’s seemed an uncomfortable issue to admit. As if forgetting about them helped put the war behind us. I want us to work to have answers for all of them.” 

To those whom this event was for, Ron George said, “Even though they can’t hear my voice, Thank You.”

Congressman Harris Votes To Defund Obamacare And Keep The Government Open

Congressman Andy Harris Stands With the American People Against Obamacare

– Congressman Andy Harris, M.D. voted for the continuing resolution that would defund The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act or Obamacare, control spending, and keep the government funded until December 15, 2013. It is now up to the U.S. Senate to stand with the House and the American people against this law and make responsible reductions in out of control government spending.

“We have seen as this disastrous law is being implemented that it is anything but affordable and patients are not being protected,” said Harris. “This law is bad for middle class families who will see their premiums go up and young people who are just starting out. Businesses are having to move full time workers to part time, lay people off, or put off hiring because the regulations are too expensive. It is now time for the U.S. Senate to listen to the American people and take action to defund this train wreck.”

Sunfest Proves To Be A Huge Success At End Of 2013 Season

A Mix Of Emotions Around The Marine Barracks

Even though the weather was beautiful, the mood outside the Marine Corps Barracks on Sunday in Southeast D.C. was solemn.

"Pretty somber, I would say," said Amanda Robertson, of Arlington, as she passed by the barracks.

This is the first Sunday since 12 people were killed at the Washington Navy Yard, and some, like Robertson, lifted up the victims' families in prayer.


Judge Jeanine Pirro - Opening Statement - Putin Vs Obama - Who To Believe?

No Thanks, Obamacare. I'll Pay The Penalty

Can't afford the premiums. Don't need health insurance. Won't support Obamacare.

These are some of the reasons why CNNMoney readers say they'll opt to pay a penalty for not having health insurance in 2014, rather than sign up for a policy in the state-based exchanges or through their companies.

"I would love to have insurance, but we just don't have the money," said Sandra Czop, 58, of Bloomingdale, Ill. "We need that $100 to put food on the table. We have no money to put gas in the car."

Czop, a mortgage loan officer whose business is down 60% and whose husband is unemployed, summed up the sentiments of many readers. Though subsidies are available to those earning less than 400% of the poverty level, the premiums are still too high for many Americans.


Doctors Tell Mom To Abort “Brain Dead” Baby, Mom Sues After Delivering Healthy Child

A mother in England is filing suit against a hospital where doctors told her she should have an abortion of her supposedly “brain dead” unborn baby. Sarah Hagan is now suing City Hospitals Sunderland after giving birth to a healthy child.

Hagan says that, after a 24-week ultrasound scan of her unborn baby, doctors told her that her son Aaron was “brain dead,” had just one eye and no chance of survival.

The mother of two says physicians adviser her to take an abortion drug, even though the mifepristone abortion pill is only authorized to be used to destroy the life of an unborn baby much earlier in pregnancy.

When the abortion drug didn’t work, another doctor informed Hagan her baby needed to be delivered immediately and she gave birth to Aaron, who was born at 1lb 7oz with both eyes and healthy other than the fact that he was born prematurely — which has left him with chronic lung problems he wouldn’t have had otherwise. Now Aaron is 15 months old and Hagan is taking legal action.

ANNAPOLIS, MD – As part of the O'Malley-Brown Administration's ongoing focus on job training, Governor Martin O'Malley issued an Executive Order directing State agencies to promote apprenticeship programs and encourage hiring in priority areas. The Order is part of the Administration's ongoing efforts to strengthen the middle class by ensuring Marylanders have the skills necessary to compete in the 21st Century economy.

Under the Executive Order, State agencies are encouraged to award credit in the procurement process to contractors that agree to participate in registered apprenticeship programs. The Executive Order also encourages contractors to submit voluntary plans for community outreach and hiring in areas of high unemployment.

"In Maryland, our people are our greatest asset," said Governor O'Malley. "When investing in our State infrastructure, we must also seize the opportunity to develop critical job skills needed in construction, and to expand employment opportunities for Marylanders, particularly in areas with high unemployment. This Executive Order will allow us to continue our efforts to expand opportunities for middle class families, and build an economy that creates prosperity for Maryland from the middle out."

The procurement guidelines direct State agencies to consider on a project-by-project basis whether promoting apprenticeship programs and community hiring is in the best interests of the State, after considering a broad range of factors, including the size and complexity of the project and the impact on project costs, if any. Contractors who agree to participate in apprenticeship programs are authorized to execute either a project labor agreement or an apprenticeship agreement with an operator of a program that is registered with the Maryland Apprenticeship and Training Council.

Missing Cat 9-19-13 UPDATE

Dear Mr. Albero,

I have lost my dear cat "Pop-Tart". He is a 10 year old small maincoon, orange tiger in color with white belly. Our family is heartbroken and was hoping that you could post the information for us as soon as possible.

He disappeared from our yard in Westbury Acres on Tuesday night. He is not a wanderer and never ever stays gone for long, and never overnight.

Please help me find my cat if you can. I am sending you a picture of him.

Thank You So Much
