BREAKING NEWS: U.S. journalist is FREED in Syria after two years in captivity

An American journalist who was kidnapped entering Syria nearly two years ago has been freed.

Peter Theo Curtis was handed over to UN representatives on Sunday, just days after another U.S. reporter, James Foley, was beheaded by the Islamic State group.

Curtis was abducted in Antakya, Turkey, in October 2012 where he planned to enter Syria, according to Al Jazeera.



Gun owners, preppers urge Americans to get ready
One of the lessons from Ferguson, Missouri, ignored by the 24/7 media frenzy, was that store owners who stood and defended their shops with guns did not get looted or vandalized.

At County Guns and the adjacent St. Louis Ink Tattoo Studio, peace and calm reigned.

Adam Weinstein, owner of County Guns, shares a storefront with his business partner on Florissant Avenue less than 10 minutes from where rioters started looting and burning businesses after a peaceful prayer vigil Sunday night, Aug. 10. The protest of slain teenager Michael Brown had suddenly turned violent.

Hearing news reports of the spreading lawlessness, Weinstein and his partner, tattoo artist Mike Gutierrez, decided to act.

They rounded up a few friends and prepared to protect their businesses. With force if necessary.

When they arrived at their stores, the Dollar General in the same strip mall had already been looted.

“As soon as I saw they were getting closer to the store, I called my partner and we went up there and cleared out all the inventory,” he said, in an effort to stop the looters from getting a slew of free weapons from his gun store.


Here's What I Posted Tuesday, August 28, 2012 About The 12 Firefighter

Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don't

This story is much bigger than you think. While many of you are only seeing the surface of the $1,500,000.00 Grant accepted last night, there's a LOT more to it. 

There's a financial side, a political side and more motives than you can believe.

While the Firefighters stood up there last night and clearly stated they'll have some 10 Firefighters retiring over the next 2 years and these new Firefighters call fill the gaps, will they?

Will the Firefighters mentioned last night actually retire, or will they stay on for as long as they can to retain a larger retirement package.

While it sounds good, come on now, seriously?

The City Council made it very clear, when the two years is up, are you prepared to let these people go. Hoppes replied, yes.

I strongly encourage each and every one of you to watch this video. If you'd like to skip some of it I'd suggest you go to 6:50 on the video and watch from that point forward. Mike, if you want to be MILITARY, JOIN the military. In the mean time, YOU'RE A SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT, of which you were elected or hired to be. I'll bank on my MILITARY and their TRAINING and experience before I'll allow a group of wanna be cops acting like the HERO's serving our Country every day overseas. ENOUGH of the pounding of the chest and citizens applauding their Sheriff. Our Sheriff's head has become so big he couldn't fit into the hole to get into one of these "Urban Assault Vehicles". Folks, WATCH this video and LEARN the TRUTH about our now Police State / Militarized Zone in Wicomico County.

‘No different than supporting ISIS': Libs work to take down fundraising page for Officer Darren Wilson

Shaun King, founder of Upfront Media Group, is leading the charge to have a GoFundMe page supporting Ferguson, Mo., Officer Darren Wilson taken down.

“This page has been created to support Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department,” reads the page. “We stand behind Officer Darren Wilson and his family during this trying time in their lives. All proceeds will be sent directly to Darren Wilson and his family for any financial needs they may have including legal fees.”

King claims the fundraiser violates GoFundMe’s terms of service, calling it “a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.”

Salisbury To Study Urban Bee, Chicken Regs

SALISBURY — The Salisbury City Council had a frank talk about the birds and the bees Monday when officials weighed the pros and cons of allowing urban beekeeping and chicken coups.

As part of encouraging the city to become “greener” and other community benefits, Council President Jake Day advocated for establishing ordinances that would allow urban bee and chicken keeping. Bee keeping, for example, is a simple way to improve fauna around the city, according to Day.

“There are human health benefits as well. But the primary purpose is to enable and allow and support a healthy community gardening and street tree, flower and tree, systems throughout Salisbury,” he said.




I was there when they begged the Mayor and Council to hire the 12 Firefighters through a grant.

I watched Mayor Ireton, Debbie Campbell, Terry Cohen and Tim Spies call each and every one of you out saying that IF they went ahead and hired these 12 people, IF the funding was NOT there these 12 Firefighters would have to be let go. The CHIEF AGREED. They refused to RAISE TAXES to keep them on board.

The CHIEF stated that it would NOT be a problem because in FOUR years when the funding ended there were at LEAST 12 Firefighters RETIRING, THEY LIED!

Shame on ALL of those Firefighter bad mouthing the Mayor for NOT being supportive. You were told right out of the gate what would happen and the day has now arrived. RETIRE 12 Firefighters or shut the hell up. You got what you WANTED, NOW BE ACCOUNTABLE. 

Good Job Mayor Ireton, Council, and Thank You. 

Maryland Police Inventory List of Federal 1033 Surplus Program: Local Law Enforcement Prepare for Riots

Below is a DOCUMENTED list you will NOT see in your local MEDIA. Well, that is, until they take it from us.

First, I want you to scroll down the entire list. It is in alphabetical order so you can look up Fruitlend, Wicomico, etc.. 

The military has been training for YEARS and has been delivering such stories, photos and documentation to PROVE this training was going on. Each one of these training exercises was based around RIOTS within our own country.

Now, Obama got involved with the Travon matter, (if I had a son) and now the Brown matter. I have read all to many times how the federal government needs to stay the heck away from this until all due diligence has been completed, they have/did not. 

Now, look good and hard at the massive list of arms and gear the government is handing out, (below) and for once in your life USE YOUR HEADS. Race baiting and divide is EXACTLY what the Obama administration and the LIBERALS are encouraging. 

Do NOT fall for this crap. Do NOT let our government DIVIDE races and pit us against each other. Be SMART and PROACTIVE. Go to the NAACP meetings and LISTEN. Get involved and become a part of a solution and NOT unrest. 

Now go ahead and read the list below and GET EDUCATED and STOP being ignorant and stupid. Become LEADERS and not FOLLOWERS.

A Letter To The Editor 8-21-14

I am writing to you today to ask/beg for your help! I am at my wits end, and do not know where else to turn except the Media! I know that your site actually reaches many more people than the Daily Times, or any of the local TV, and I would like you to address this issue on your site if at all possible.

I see where numerous people are complaining about Comcast and I understand their frustrations, because I used to have Comcast. I have satelite now so I don't have to deal with them anymore! My problem is with VERIZON! I am not talking about Verizon Wireless, I am talking about VERIZON!!!!

My problem first started on July 27th. I went to use my phone and had no dial tone, checked my internet (which is also Verizon) and had nothing there either. I called them to report the trouble. I was told that it was in my house, even though we had already checked the outside box and there was no dial tone on their side either. I told them it was on their side, that I had already tested it. After dealing with a hateful customer service employee, she finally decided to enter the trouble ticket. She also informed me that I would have to pay for the Tech call since she guaranteed that it was in my house. The soonest someone would be in my area was on July 30th. So I would be with out a phone and internet for 3-4 days before they would even send someone to look at it. The tech came out, discovered it was on Verizon's side (DUH), and told us that he couldn't do anything, he would have another Tech come out that day and figure it out. HUH? So you don't know how to do your job as a Tech, but Verizon sent you to REPAIR the problem. The second tech came out that day. He told us the same thing that it was VERIZON'S Problem, and he would Attempt to REPAIR it!

He ran multiple tests, found 4 issues on Verizon's side, supposively fixing them. He did get us a dial tone and the internet back some how. We thought the problem was solved! Imagine our surprise when we woke up the next day, and had no dial tone, and no internet again! I called and reported ANOTHER TROUBLE TICKET. Guess what - there was no Tech's in our area until Sat. Aug 2nd. So once again I was without a phone or internet for multiple days. On Sat. Aug 2nd the Tech showed up, discovering once again that it was VERIZON'S Problem! He ran tests, and said it was in the main HUB ( which by the way is across the street from the old firehouse in Parsonsburg), and he was going to investigate. He came back to our house, and informed us that he couldn't fix it, because he didn't have the correct equipment on his truck! He had called another Tech to come fix it. The Tech that came out was HONEST, and did everything he could.

The reason I say he was honest is because he laid everything out for us in Black and White! His exact words were, "I have fixed it for now, but i can't tell you how long it will work. That Hub is ready to BLOW UP at any time! He said that there is RED, YELLOW, and GREEN lights flashing everywhere! HE said that VERIZON has CRAMMED WAY too many people into that HUB, instead of actually UPGRADING THE EQUIPMENT like they should have a long time ago." Imagine my surprise, fear, and horrror to know that ANYTIME there could be a LARGE explosion in Parsonsburg!

Fast forward to August 14th, when our nightmare repeats! We wake up with no dial tone or Internet again! This is really getting INSANE! I reported the TROUBLE AGAIN! This time we were told that a Tech would be in our area on Sunday august 17th. Now when they tell you the tech will be in your area they give you a time (8am - 7pm), and someone over the age of 18 must be home! So I got up at 6:30 am on Sunday to begin my wait to get my phone and internet working! My frustation constantly mounting. At 3:30 I went to my job, I logged onto the internet and imagine MY ANGER when I discovered that there was not a trouble ticket anymore! The last time that I had checked it, was on Friday at 11:00 am, at work, and the ticket was still there. I called Verizon to find out what was going on!

I was informed that I personally had cancelled the trouble ticket on Friday at 3:00. The problem with that is that on Friday at 3:00 I was in Ocean City with my family, and have time stamped photos to prove it. When I informed them of that - they started BACKPEDDLING! I asked them Why I would cancel the trouble ticket when I still didn't have a phone or internet? They couldn't answer that - so I told them since EVERY CALL IS RECORDED - I WANTED TO HERE MY VOICE ON THAT CALL CANCELLING THE TICKET. Surprise - they couldn't provide it! I spoke to a supervisor who informed me that I was told incorrectly. The supervisor instructed me that the MACHINE had SCRUBBED my ticket!!!!! I asked who programmed the machine to instruct it to scrub my ticket? They couldn't answer it!

So I had them enter ANOTHER TROUBLE TICKET! They instructed me that there would be a Tech in my area on Tuesday 8/19. I asked them why they couldn't use the tech that was in my area today, since I was originally scheduled for today. They then told me they would call me back. They called my husband's cell phone - and left a voicemail that there would be a tech in my area on Monday 8/18. I checked online and my trouble ticket was scheduled for Tuesday 8/19. I called and inquired as to why the trouble ticket was in the system for Tuesday 8/19, when I had received a voicemail stating the tech would be there on 8/18. The Customer Service rep told me that the rep I had spoke to did not know what he was talking about, and the soonest a Tech would be in my area was Tuesday 8/19. Ok whatever, please just get my phone and internet fixed.

Guess what I saw on my way home from work on Monday 8/18 at 4:30? A Verizon bucket truck on Forest Grove Road, in Parsonsburg. Guess that is not my area! So today I have a tech at the house telling us the same thing, about the HUB! So in less than a month I have already been without a phone or internet for 13 days, had to place 4 REPAIR trouble ticket, have dealt with 5 tech's so far, and spent numerous time on the phone with IGNORANT CUSTOMER SERVICE agents, and still don't have a phone. But guess what every business card says, "OUR GOAL IS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH OUTSTANDING SERVICE!"

I am sorry but if that is OUTSTANDING SERVICE - I hate to see HORRIBLE SERVICE - oh what I have it's called VERIZON!!!!!

I wanted to put the word out that way if there is an EXPLOSION in Parsonsburg, it is documented on who's responsible - VERIZON!!!!!

Spike Lee Hopes 'Things Will Really Blow Up' if Ferguson Officer Is Acquitted

After a week of rioting and confrontations in Ferguson, Missouri, filmmaker Spike Lee said he hoped that "things will really blow up" if Officer Darren Wilson is tried and the people of Ferguson are unhappy with the verdict.

Lee made his incendiary remarks on Tuesday's Anderson Cooper 360 on CNN, saying that, even though he does not have the facts, "something smells bad in Ferguson, and it's not just tear gas."

"And I'm not saying that people should burn down stuff and riot and loot," Lee told host Anderson Cooper. "But this is not the first time we've seen this. And I just hope that things will really blow up if the people aren't happy with the verdict of this upcoming trial."

Cooper let Lee's inflammatory comments slide without even asking a follow-up question or calling him out.


DNC Chair: Martin O’Malley Right On Border Kids’ ‘Certain Death’

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz also thinks deporting children detained at the border is sending them back to “certain death.”

The White House went apoplectic last month when likely 2016 presidential candidate Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said, “We are not a country that should turn children away and send them back to certain death.” Tuesday night, Wasserman Schultz said twice — strongly — that she thinks O’Malley was right.

“As you know, Gov. O’Malley said that to send them back would be to send them to certain death. Do you agree with him?”Fusion’s Jorge Ramos asked in an interview.


Star Witness In Michael Brown Shooting Charged With Theft, Filing False Police Report

Dorian Johnson, the primary witness to the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, has an outstanding warrant for a 2011 theft in Jefferson City and pleaded guilty for filing a false police report related to that theft.

St. Louis ABC affiliate ABC 17 cross referenced Johnson’s name against several records and discovered the warrant.

Johnson will be the star witness for any potential prosecution proceedings against Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of Brown. Johnson was walking with Brown when the shooting occurred.

He has already done multiple media appearances where he falsely claimedBrown was shot by Wilson in the back. He also has claimed that Brown never reached for Wilson’s gun, was “shot like an animal” and that Brown had his hands up and told Wilson he was unarmed.

Johnson’s claims helped inspire the protests and riots in Ferguson over the past 10 days, as well as the “Hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry of the protesters and their supporters.

Maryland trooper suspended after accused of being naked in bar

(Reuters) - A Maryland State Police trooper has been put on administrative suspension after sheriff's deputies responded to a call reporting a naked man drinking at a bar in a barbecue restaurant, authorities said on Wednesday.

The incident is the most recent in a spate involving naked people around the country.

Harford County sheriff's deputies arrived around 11 p.m. on Saturday at the bar in Jarrettsville, 32 miles north of Baltimore, and located two men who identified themselves as state troopers. The trooper in question appeared intoxicated and denied that he had been naked, sheriff's deputy spokeswoman Christie Kahler said.

Customers told deputies one of the troopers had pulled off his pants and at one point exposed himself, according to the report. Neither man was charged.

Ferguson fallout: Obama opens door to ‘re-examining’ military gear program for local police

President Obama opened the door Monday to re-evaluating a massive Defense Department program that sends military equipment to local police forces, in the wake of concerns about the St. Louis County Police Department's response to riots and protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

"There is a big difference between our military and our local law enforcement, and we don't want those lines blurred," Obama said.

The president spoke at the White House briefing room late Monday, during a pause in the capital from his vacation in Martha's Vineyard. As he has before, Obama walked a fine line in addressing the sustained violence and unrest in the St. Louis suburb over the killing of an unarmed black man by a police officer.

He said most demonstrators are protesting peacefully, but said a "small minority" are not. To those looting and attacking officers, Obama said their behavior "undermines, rather than [advances] justice."

Obama also said "there's no excuse for excessive force by police."

Trayvon Martin’s Mom: ‘If They Refuse to Hear Us, We Will Make Them Feel Us’

Sybrina Fulton is the mother of Trayvon Martin and the founder of the Trayvon Martin Foundation. In a letter to the family of Ferguson teen Michael Brown written exclusively for TIME, Fulton reflects on what the families now share.
To The Brown Family,

I wish I had a word of automatic comfort but I don’t. I wish I could say that it will be alright on a certain or specific day but I can’t. I wish that all of the pain that I have endured could possibly ease some of yours but it won’t. What I can do for you is what has been done for me: pray for you then share my continuing journey as you begin yours.

I hate that you and your family must join this exclusive yet growing group of parents and relatives who have lost loved ones to senseless gun violence. Of particular concern is that so many of these gun violence cases involve children far too young. But Michael is much more than a police/gun violence case; Michael is your son. A son that barely had a chance to live. Our children are our future so whenever any of our children – black, white, brown, yellow, or red – are taken from us unnecessarily, it causes a never-ending pain that is unlike anything I could have imagined experiencing.

Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times

Attorney General demands a SECOND federal autopsy be performed on Michael Brown because of the 'extraordinary circumstances' in the case

US Attorney General Eric Holder has asked for the Justice Department to arrange an autopsy on the body of Michael Brown by a federal medical examiner.

Justice Department spokesman Brian Fallon said in a news release on Sunday that Holder asked for the additional autopsy because of the "extraordinary circumstances involved in this case" and at the request of Brown's family.

The 18-year-old Brown was shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer on Aug. 9. Brown was black and unarmed. Officer Darren Wilson is white.

Fallon says the autopsy will take place as soon as possible.

He also said the Justice Department will still take the state's autopsy into account during the investigation.


Now protests start IN FAVOR of shooter cop

More than a hundred turn out in rally supporting Darren Wilson after he skips town to avoid violent reprisals

Supporters of the St Louis policeman who killed a black teenager have rallied in the city in the first public show of support for the officer.

At the rally, attended by around 150 people, protesters walked around wearing specially printed T-shirts which were sold for $7 with a police shield on which was the words: ‘I stand by Darren Wilson’.

Instead of a badge number it read 8.9.14 - the day he killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Two Facebook pages in support of Wilson, 28, have also sprung up with a combined total of 35,000 likes.


Is Pole Dancing Truly An Art?


(August 17, 2014) – On August 16, 2014, at approximately 3 a.m., Ocean City Communications received a call reporting an adult male had been located unconscious and unresponsive inside a hotel room in the area of 4701 Coastal Highway, in Ocean City.

First responders from the Ocean City Police and Fire Departments initiated emergency lifesaving procedures on the victim and transported him to Atlantic General Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased at approximately 3:45 a.m. The victim has been identified as Jorge Troca, 38, of Lyndhurst, NJ.

An autopsy was conducted on August 17, 2014 by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the State of Maryland. The results of the autopsy at this time are pending; however, investigators in the case have determined that no foul play was involved in Troca’s death.

The new street drug to watch: Acetyl fentanyl

Emergency doctors may soon see larger numbers of patients who appear to have overdosed on heroin, but have actually taken a relatively new and deadly designer drug called acetyl fentanyl, a researcher says.

Acetyl fentanyl is a relative of a powerful prescription painkiller called fentanyl and is five times more potent than heroin as a painkiller, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The illegally produced compound may be secretly mixed with heroin to make it a more potent product, or may be sold in pills disguised as oxycodone.

"What's frightening about this emerging street drug is that users themselves may not be aware that they are ingesting it," drug researcher John Stogner, of the department of criminal justice and criminology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, said in a statement.
