Young couple makes incredible discovery in kitchen

This fascinating story comes to us from Eddie, 29, and Angie, 26, in Phoenix, who wished their last name left out for obvious reasons at the moment. They recently made a once-in-a-lifetime discovery while renovating their kitchen. Angie shared the story of the safe:

Where to start… we moved into our fixer-upper home two years ago and we’re finally getting around to the kitchen renovation. Eddie is DIY (enough) and saving us some money. It’s cute.

During the demolition, we found this safe in the floor – the safe revealed itself when we tore down the kitchen island.

Kraft Heinz expands Kraft Singles recall

NEW YORK (AP) — Kraft Heinz is expanding a recall of Kraft Singles products, saying a problem with the packaging film affects 10 times as many cases as it first thought.

The company recalled 335,000 cases Thursday because a thin strip of packaging film may stick to the slice after the wrapper has been taken off, creating a choking hazard. Kraft Heinz recalled 36,000 cases on July 31 for the same reason.

The privately held company said it’s received two new reports of customers choking. It disclosed three such reports in July, and said it had received seven other complaints about the packaging.


Beauty Bands for Bald Babies are Bad Idea

HUNTINGTON- Dr. Yousa Kidde, a pediatric psychology professor at Marshall University Medical School, recently addressed the West Virginia Chapter of the American Psychological Association about alarming medical problems and other impairments doctors are seeing nationwide after young girls were subjected to wearing elasticized headbands as infants.

“This silly phase of putting elastic around a child’s cranium has to end. Parents need to realize how damaging this practice is, before it is too late,” Kidde said. “There is absolutely no truth that colorful headbands on infants help kids develop an esthetic sense.”

Kidde said doctors are now seeing young patients that may be scarred for life. Researchers are beginning to study whether an elastic headband is causing head trauma that can decrease the baby’s IQ. Kidde said it is hard to determine whether the headbands are to blame, since the IQs of the child’s parents cannot be that high if they are subjecting their child to this torturous fad.


10th Circuit judges shocked by own court's ruling

Five judges of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals have issued an opinion that easily could serve as advice for District Judge David Bunning, who found Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim
Davis in contempt of court and jailed her Thursday for refusing to violate her faith.

Davis has refused to issue any marriage licenses from her office since the Supreme Court created the right to “same-sex marriage.”

Bunning admitted there was a conflict between Davis’ religious-exercise right and the newly created right. But he refused to consider any accommodation for her and ruled she would have to violate her faith to stay out of jail.

But the 10th Circuit judges’ dissenting opinion Thursday in another case centered on religious rights warns of the dangers of having judges “examine the reasoning behind a religious practice or belief and decide what is core and what is derivative.”

JEB Doubles Down, Still Believes Illegals Come to USA as Act of love

Federal Court: Illegal Immigrant And Convicted Felon Can’t Be Deported Because He’s Transgender

A federal appeals court has ruled that an illegal immigrant and convicted felon can’t be deported back to Mexico because he identifies as a transgender woman, which leaves him vulnerable to torture back in his home country.

Edin Carey Avendano-Hernandez was born male in Mexico, and claims to have been raped by his brothers and suffered other torments. In 2000, he illegally entered the U.S. and took up residence in Fresno, California. Avendano-Hernandez also started taking female hormones and began living openly as a woman in 2005. In 2006, he committed two separate drunk driving offenses, the second of which injured two people and resulted in a felony conviction. After serving a year in jail, he was deported back to Mexico in 2007.

Back in Mexico, Avendano-Hernandez claims to have been subjected to more harassment from family and neighbors and to have been raped by members of the Mexican army. He illegally entered the U.S. again and, after being arrested, petitioned for sanctuary in the U.S. under the U.N. Convention Against Torture (CAT), arguing that deporting him would violate the CAT because he would more likely than not experience torture at the hands of Mexican authorities. 


Indicted Philadelphia congressman cannot suppress warrant for emails

Chaka Fattah, a Philadelphia congressman facing corruption charges, failed to persuade a federal appeals court to void a search warrant that would give investigators access to seven years of his private emails.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday dismissed Fattah's argument that executing the warrant to force Google Inc to turn over contents of his Gmail account dating back to 2008 would violate the U.S. Constitution's Speech or Debate Clause, which provides protections for members of Congress.

Circuit Judge Julio Fuentes said the three-judge appeals court panel lacked jurisdiction because the warrant has yet to be executed.

He also said Fattah, a Democrat in his 11th term, could not demonstrate that disclosing privileged emails, as opposed to using them as evidence, was unconstitutional.


The FBI Now Needs a Warrant To Use Its Phone-Sniffing Stingray Boxes

Privacy took a blow last week when the NSA got permission to keep operating a massive dragnet. Here’s some better news: As of today, federal agents should have a harder time using Stingrays to spy on cell phones.

Today, the Department of Justice issued a new policy that requires federal agencies to get a search warrant before they deploy a “cell-site simulator,” aka Stingray, in all but the most dire circumstances.

(The Stingray is just the name of one specific device, made by the Harris Corporation, which pretends to be a cell tower in order to trick nearby phones into connecting to it.)


Stonewalled Veteran Files Lawsuit Against DOD, DOJ, EPA

A veteran who previously spoke to Breitbart News about being stonewalled by the Department of Defense on his Freedom of Information Act requests has now filed a lawsuit to get information about toxic contamination at Fort McClellan, by which hundreds of thousands of veterans may have been exposed.

Raymond Pulliam – a 53-year-old veteran – had to retire in 2012 due to health issues that he thinks were caused by toxic chemicals he was exposed to during his basic training at Fort McClellan in Alabama. As Breitbart News previously reported, Pulliam “has sought information about Fort McClellan’s chemical contamination from the Department of Defense since last year, but his Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has gone unanswered.”

According to the complaint, Pulliam, the Plaintiff, is suing the Department of Defense, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the United States Department of Justice “in failing to provide Plaintiff with all non-exempt records responsive to his FOIA requests sent to each of these federal agencies, seeking records regarding their investigation into toxic contamination at former U.S. Army base Fort McClellan.”

Pulliam’s case was filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia last week and was assigned to Judge Amy Berman Jackson.


Police/Courts 09/04/2015


Ocean City police officers arrested Joseph Hughes, 61, of Ocean City on Sunday for hitting a bicyclist on Second Street and leaving the scene without stopping after causing injuries to the victim.

A witness to the incident followed Hughes, in his own car, down Baltimore Avenue until Hughes crashed into the rear of another vehicle.

Upon arrival to the crash, police reported that Hughes had a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and his eyes were bloodshot.

Police placed Hughes under arrest and took him to police headquarters, where he allegedly blew a .23 during an alcohol concentration test.

The bicyclist was taken to a hospital for treatment.

Hughes was charged with failure of a vehicle to avoid a collision with a person on a bike, failure to control speed on a highway to avoid a collision, failure to stop at the scene of an accident after causing injury, driving while under the influence of alcohol and six additional offenses.

Plethora of drugs

Rachael Mitchell, 28, and Adam McKirby, 34, of Georgetown, Del. were arrested on Sunday, Aug. 30 for possession of heroin by a deputy from the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.


Former Clinton Aide Who Helped Set Up Server To Plead Fifth

A former aide to Hillary Clinton who helped set up her private email server has told at least three congressional committees that he will invoke the Fifth Amendment to avoid testifying against his former boss, Fox News has confirmed.

Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign before helping install the so-called "homebrew" server system in her Chappaqua, N.Y. home, was asked to testify about the server by the House Select Committee on Benghazi, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

"Mr. Pagliano’s legal counsel told the committee yesterday that he would plead the 5th to any and all questions if he were compelled to testify," a spokesperson for Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, told Fox late Wednesday.

A letter from Pagliano's attorney Mark MacDougall explaining his client's decision cited the ongoing FBI investigation into whether classified national security information was mishandled when it passed through Clinton's server.

"While we understand that Mr. Pagliano’s response to this subpoena may be controversial in the current political environment, we hope that the members of the Select Committee will respect our client’s right to invoke the protections of the Constitution," MacDougall wrote.


Police arrest man who threatened to ‘kill all the white people’ in La Plata

WASHINGTON — A man is in police custody after police say he threatened to “kill all the white people” in a Charles County town.

Police arrested 20-year-old Carlos Hollins of Waldorf, Maryland, Wednesday night after they say he tweeted a threat against La Plata residents.

On Wednesday, the La Plata Police Department was notified about a tweet on an account belonging to Hollins which read, “IM NOT GONNA STAND FOR THIS NO. MORE. TONIGHT WE PURGE! KILL ALL THE WHITE PPL IN THE TOWN OF LA PLATA.”

Hollins is facing charges of threats of mass violence.


Nuclear deal will make war with Iran more likely, former top military officials say in report

A group of former top military officials and intelligence analysts released a new report Wednesday concluding that the nuclear deal with Iran will threaten American interests and increase the probability of military conflict in the Middle East.

In its report, the Iran Strategy Council wrote that the nuclear deal, called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), “will enable Iran to increase support for terrorist and insurgent proxies, aggravate sectarian conflict and trigger both nuclear and conventional proliferation cascades.”

Additionally, the deal will “provide the expansionist regime in Tehran with access to resources, technology and international arms markets required to bolster offensive military capabilities in the vital Persian Gulf region, acquire long-range ballistic missiles and develop other major weapons systems,” the council wrote.

In its report, the council argued that the deal is not an alternative to war with Iran, as many of its supports have claimed, but would actually make war more likely.

Guam sex offenders to get chemical castration

HAGATNA, Guam — The Guam Legislature Thursday narrowly passed a bill for the creation of a pilot program to chemically castrate convicted sex offenders.

The Chemical Castration for Sex Offenders Act passed 8-7, according to a release from the legislature.

The pilot program at the Department of Correction will screen and refer convicted sex offenders to undergo anti-androgen treatment, or chemical castration, one week before their release. The candidates will be those eligible for release on parole within six months.

The bill will be forwarded to the governor.


Dish Taking Away Users’ Right To Sue Company In Court. Here’s How To Opt Out

Over the weekend, a number of Consumerist readers wrote to us with the bad news that, like a growing number of companies, Dish Network is updating its terms of use to strip customers of their right to dispute legal claims in a court of law. There is a way for Dish subscribers to opt out of this restriction — but only if they do it right away.

The updated Dish “Residential Customer Agreement” [PDF] includes a new provision that requires that all customers settle their disputes through either mandatory binding arbitration or in small claims court. Both situations put severe limits on the damages that can be awarded.

Additionally, Dish customers are barred from joining other wronged customers in any sort of class action. So even if the company were to do something that negatively affected millions of customers, each individual subscriber would need to file his or her own dispute with the satellite service… and then have it heard by a third-party arbitrator, or in a small claims court without legal representation.

However, Dish is providing subscribers with the ability to opt out of this provision, but only if they do so within 30 days. So if you’re a Dish customer, check your e-mail inbox because you probably have a boring-sounding message from Dish with details of the new arbitration rules. Your 30-day countdown started whenever that e-mail was sent.

Guilty Plea In Morgan State University Stabbing

A former Morgan State University student has received probation before judgment after entering a plea in the stabbing of another student on campus.

Court records show 20-year-old Carlos Mars of District Heights pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree assault on Monday. If Mars successfully completes his probation, he won't have a criminal record.

Mars was initially charged with attempted murder in the March 17 fight that broke out between groups on campus.


Report: Clinton Herself Wrote And Sent Classified Emails On Private Server

Newly released emails show Hillary Clinton wrote and sent emails containing highly classified information on her private server while secretary of state, directly contradicting her claim she didn’t handle classified information with her personal account.

Classification authorities were previously unaware of the emails, since Clinton was sending and receiving them on an off-the-books server. But given the chance to review the emails, they determined scores of them contained classified information at the time they were sent.

But many of the newly released emails are marked classified from the date Clinton sent them, as opposed to the date they were reviewed by classification authorities, a Federalist analysis of the email dump found.

What determines whether an email is classified under federal law is not how it’s marked, but whether it actually contains classified information. And in some cases, the State Department redacted entire emails written and sent by Clinton that were released in the dump, citing national security concerns.

Eric Cantor: Poster Boy of the Beltway GOP Crapweasels

Ooouuuch. My sides are still aching after last week's comical announcement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he had snagged the coveted endorsement of notorious electoral reject Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader kicked to the curb by disgusted voters in Virginia's 2014 primary election.

Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor's support is not like landing a prized marlin. It's like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world's ugliest creature.

Inside the Beltway, The Washington Post reported, "Cantor remains well-liked and respected in the Virginia business community and among the Republican donor class in the commonwealth."

But outside the Beltway, the failed Republican revolutionary-turned-Wall Street influence-peddler is a snortle-inducing spectacle on both sides of the political aisle.

In Cantor's endorsement statement Thursday, he praised Bush as a "true conservative leader" who "can re-energize our nation and recapture our greatness." That's empty babble coming from the epitome of an out-of-touch, self-aggrandizing, revolving-door ruling class.

Baltimore judge to weigh motions in high-profile police death case

A judge on Wednesday rejected defense motions to drop charges against six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of a black man from an injury in custody, clearing the way for scheduled trial next month.

Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Barry Williams also rejected a defense motion calling for State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and her office to recuse themselves from the Freddie Gray case.

The death of Gray, 25, drew worldwide attention when it triggered protests and a day of rioting, arson and looting. The case became part of a national debate on police treatment of minorities in the United States.

Security at the downtown courthouse was enhanced for the hearing and protesters rallied outside, decrying what they called militarization of police. One person was arrested.


Troopers Investigate Serious Motorcycle Crash West of Lewes

Lewes, DE – Troopers are investigating a serious motorcycle crash that sent two people to area hospitals early Thursday afternoon.

The incident occurred around 2:25 p.m. Thursday September 3, 2015, as Brian A. Taylor, 25 of Lewes, was operating a 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycle northbound on Dairy Farm Road approximately one half mile south of Lewes-Georgetown Highway (US9). Jonathan H. Hurd, 54 of Georgetown, was operating a 1993 International Dump Truck and had just pulled onto Dairy Farm Road northbound in front of the motorcycle from a private access road leading to a corn field. The motorcycle then struck the left rear of the truck, ejecting Taylor and his female passenger into the roadway.

Brian Taylor, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Beebe Healthcare where he was admitted with undetermined injuries.

Kristen N. Schaffer, 26 of Lewes, was not wearing a helmet and was airlifted from the scene by Delaware State Police Aviation (Trooper 2) to Christiana Medical Center where she was admitted in critical condition.

Jonathan Hurd was uninjured in the collision.

Troopers are continuing their investigation into this incident and no charges have been filed. Dairy Farm Road was closed for approximately two hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.

Martin Armstrong Warns: The #1 Terrorist Group Is You, Domestic Citizen

Understand this now. As Jim Quinn explains, YOU are the enemy of the state. They don’t give a shit about you. They treat you as sheep and cows to be sheared and milked. If you start questioning them, they will slaughter you. They have militarized the police forces and put you under 24 hour surveillance because they fear an uprising. There only a few hundred thousand of them and there are millions of us. A conflict is looming.

As Armstrong Economics' Martin Armstrong details, government talks about Islamic terrorists, but their number one fear is YOU.


New Clinton Violations In Use Of Thumb Drives For Emails

Hillary Clinton violated numerous State Department rules by using privately owned thumb drives to copy 30,000 of her official emails for her lawyer, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.

The former Secretary of State in December 2014 downloaded 30,000 government emails created during her tenure in the position from her private server onto three commercial thumb drives, which her lawyer, David Kendall, transported to Washington, D.C.

The State Department released 7,000 new Clinton emails Monday, including at least 125 that were treated by the department as classified. The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation into the handling of her emails, more than 400 of which have now been shown to include classified material.


Trump: Does Nuclear Deal Call For US To Defend Iran Against Israel?

"If Israel attacks Iran according to that deal, I believe... that we have to fight with Iran against Israel," Republican presidential candidate tells CNN. In a telephone interview with CNN Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump said that under the auspices of the Iran nuclear agreement, if Israel were to attack the Islamic Republic, the United States would have to come to the Tehran's aid.

Trump has vocally opposed the deal since announcing his run for president, saying that the United States "should have doubled up the sanctions for another couple of months" and that the 24-day notice Iran receives before sites can be inspected is unacceptable.

But Trump added an unconventional twist to the opposition argument, suggesting that under the terms of the deal the United States was required to fight alongside Iran if Israel were to attack.

"You know, there is something in the Iran deal that people I don't think really understand or know about," the real estate mogul said. "And nobody is ever to explain it that if somebody attacks Iran, we have to come to their defense."

Trump added, "And I'm saying this - that includes Israel? And most people say, yes. So, if Israel attacks Iran according to that deal, I believe... that we have to fight with Iran against Israel."



Low interest rates creating a bubble

The “Skyscraper Curse” describes the eerie connection between record-breaking skyscrapers and global economic crises.

There are no true skyscrapers being built in Auburn, Alabama, home of Auburn University. But, there has been a great deal of building big and tall.

Luxury student apartment building leads the way, followed by high-end restaurants, and retail space. Two student apartment buildings were torn down this past week to make room for yet more building. The city government is also spending truckloads of money on street improvements and a state-of-the-art high school.

What are people thinking? Don’t they realize we are in one of the weakest recoveries on record and possibly headed for another recession? Is it greedy bankers and construction companies run amuck? Is it out-of-control architects and chefs that are to blame? Or is it the spoiled rich college kids who demand luxury apartments and locally grown veggies?


Hillary "Favorability" Nears All-Time Low

Americans' views on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton have gone under water, nearing an all-time low in ABC News/Washington Post polling. Favorability taps into a public figure’s basic overall image, with as Langer Research details, [4] a negative score indicating thin ice. This last few weeks has seen Hillary Clinton's poll numbers indicate she is on thinner and thinner ice. Clinton’s favorability has been especially uneven, from as high as 67 percent favorable during her tenure as secretary of state to as low as 44 percent in spring 2008 and 45 percent now.


9th Shocking Video: Planned Parenthood Sells Intact Aborted Babies, One “Just Fell Out” of the Womb

"Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out"

The Center for Medical Progress released a new video this morning — the 9th in its series of videos catching the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. This latest video catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.

O'Malley's Taxes Drove Wealthy Out Of Maryland

Wealthy taxpayers and job-creating businesses fled Maryland at an accelerating rate as then-Gov. Martin O’Malley implemented a long list of tax hikes during his first five years in the state capital.

More than 18,600 tax filers left Maryland with $4.2 billion in adjusted gross income from 2007 – O’Malley’s first year as governor — through 2012, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of the most recently available Internal Revenue Service state-level income and migration data. The wealth of the fleeing Marylanders increased significantly during that time.

O’Malley raised taxes 40 times at an estimated cost to Maryland residents of $9.5 billion. The O’Malley tax blitz is widely credited with the 2014 victory of Republican Larry Hogan, only the second GOP governor in the deep-blue state in nearly 60 years.


Governor Larry Hogan Applauds $295 Million End-of-Year Budget Closeout

$84 Million in State Agency Reversions Surpasses Estimates by $54 Million and Represents Largest Excess in Over a Decade
ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today applauded the end-of-year budget closeout report showing that Maryland finished the fiscal year with $295 million in the estimated fund balance. $84 million of the total comes from state agency reversions, which is $54 million more than estimated. This is the state's largest over-attainment in reversions since FY 2003 and reflects more careful management of budgets in state government. Additionally, the state benefited from $214 million in higher-than-anticipated revenues, the largest contribution coming from the personal income tax.

“These are great numbers and even better news for Maryland taxpayers,” Governor Hogan said. “I am particularly proud of the fact that more than $80 million is from agencies returning unused dollars back to the state, highlighting the hard work our administration is undertaking to rein in spending and manage government responsibly. Our growing revenues mean Marylanders are making more money, and that means Maryland businesses are making more money. All this points to a growing economy that puts us on a positive path moving forward.”

Despite the $295 million closeout, Governor Hogan cautioned that these funds should not be seen as a windfall and must be invested prudently.

“Even with this encouraging news, the budget passed by the General Assembly forces the state to confront a $1.7 billion structural deficit over the next four years, and unless we continue to push for more budget accountability, it will only grow,” Governor Hogan said. “This money should be used to further stabilize the state’s finances, address our pension obligations, or be put back into the pockets of taxpayers.”

Saudi Arabia refuses to bow to pressure to cut oil production

Market share continues to be Saudi Arabia’s main concern—and not even $40 oil prices will make it give into peer pressure to cut production.

Major oil producers have been trying to convince Saudi Arabia, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ biggest producer, to take the lead and cut production to stem the price declines.

But output from the nation instead climbed to about 10.45 million barrels a day in July from 10.1 million in April, according to an estimate from Platts, even though West Texas Intermediate and Brent oil prices are down roughly 15% year to date on the back of a global supply glut.


Iran's Chief Judge: Attempts to Free Captive Americans 'Useless'

Iran's judiciary chief has urged the United States not to interfere in cases of detained Americans, days after US Secretary of State John Kerry said a jailed Marine should be freed.

Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani's remarks followed the fourth anniversary of Amir Hekmati's imprisonment in Tehran on what Kerry called "false espionage charges."

Hekmati was visiting relatives in the Islamic republic when he was arrested.

Larijani, quoted in Iranian media on Tuesday, said Iran examined legal cases "including those accused of spying for America, with absolute composure and dignity, based on duty and procedure."

"The judiciary does not need American officials to write prescriptions for it," Larijani said. "Our advice to them is not to hype (such matters) up uselessly."

In his remarks on Friday, Kerry called Hekmati's detention "unjust" and also renewed his call for Iran to release two other Americans.

Pastor Saeed Abedini was arrested in Iran in 2012 and sentenced to eight years in jail for gathering a group of people to study the Bible.

Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, meanwhile, has gone on trial on spying charges and after more than a year in custody is awaiting sentencing.

A Walk for the President

Were Babies Born Alive Before Being Sold?

In an Aug. 27 letter to Congress, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards makes what the Center for Medical Progress calls “two key admissions” about its procurement program for baby tissue. David Daleiden, who led CMP’s undercover video project, says Richards admits Planned Parenthood received payments for baby parts, and that it adjusts the abortion procedure in order to procure tissue. In that context, we view CMP’s ninth video, which the organization says “focuses on Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR), the small and secretive company that has harvested and sold fetal body parts at Planned Parenthood clinics longer than any other entity.”

In one portion of the video, ABR Procurement Manager Perrin Larton says, “The whole point is not to have a live birth.” But sometimes, she complains, women who’ve had “six pregnancies and six vaginal deliveries” are too quick to deliver. “I literally have had women come in and they’ll go in the O.R. and they’re back out in three minutes,” Larton marveled. “And I’m going, ‘What’s going on?’ Oh yeah, the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups. It just fell out.” Translation: The baby was pretty far along and perhaps alive, but became an intact cadaver specimen instead.

Larton further complained about how pro-lifers are making things difficult.

PUBLIC NOTICE: Changing From Appointed School Board To Elected School Board

Monsanto Wants to Replace the Bees They Are Killing with Genetically Engineered Flying Ants

Ecologists refer to bees and a few other select organisms as keystone species. This term is analogous to the keystone of an arch. Remove the wedge-shaped stone at the top, and the entire structure collapses.

Bees are a keystone species because they are the world’s primary pollinators and are therefore crucial to the environment. While Monsanto claims bees only pollinate about a third of the world’s crops, others estimate their contribution to be closer to 90%. But the startling decline of the bee population isn’t just threatening our crops, it is also threatening varied and diverse wild plants across the globe that provide food for countless animal species. If we lose the bees, the loss to our ecosystems will be catastrophic.


Sheriff Clarke: 'Stop Trying to Fix the Police -- Fix the Ghetto'

Milwaukee County Sherriff David A. Clarke Jr. criticized the idea that President Barack Obama’s call for reforming the police is helping law enforcement and is instead weakening “the institution of policing,” adding that the solution is to “fix the ghetto” and stop trying to “fix the police.”

Sheriff Clarke made his remarks during an interview with Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade on Monday, who launched the discussion by talking about the execution-style killing of a deputy sheriff in Texas last Friday; the suspected killer, a 30-year-old black male, was arrested and charged with “capital murder” in that crime on Saturday.

When asked for his reaction, Sheriff Clarke said the headline should be “Black Man Shoots White Defenseless Police Officer” because, he continued, “I get sick and tired when it’s the other way around, when an officer defends his life, they always point out that it’s a white officer shooting an unarmed black suspect.”

“Look, President Obama has breathed life into this ugly movement,” said Clarke. “And it is time now for good, law-abiding Americans to rise up, like they did in Houston around that Chevron station [where the deputy sheriff was murdered], an outpouring.”

“But it just can’t be symbolic,” said the sheriff. “We now have to counter this slime, this filth coming out of these cop-haters.”

When host Brian Kilmeade said that some observers say no, because President Obama “shed light on a problem,” Sheriff Clarke said, “That is a lie. President Obama didn't shed light on anything. This is nothing more than an attempt to weaken the institution of policing.”

“If there's anything that needs to be straightened out in this country, it is the subculture that has risen out of the underclass in the American Ghetto,” said Clarke.

Almost Half of Homes in New York and D.C. Are Now Losing Value

Almost half of single-family houses in the New York and Washington metropolitan areas are losing value, a sign that buyers' tolerance for high prices in many large U.S. cities may be reaching a limit.

The values of 45 percent of houses in both the Washington and New York areas slumped by at least 2 percent in June from a year earlier, according to a new index created by Allan Weiss, co-founder of the Case-Shiller home price indexes. In June 2014, only 15 percent of Washington residences dropped in value, while 20 percent fell in New York. Because the index is of only single-family homes, it doesn't include Manhattan. More properties also were in decline in Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix and Miami.


WBOC's Own Viewers Have Had Enough

LPR Alert Leads OCPD to a Stolen Vehicle and Wanted Individual

Rontari M. Warren
Traquan A. Spady
OCEAN CITY, MD – A stolen vehicle and wanted individual were located recently after an alert from a license plate reader (LPR).

On August 27, 2015, at approximately 11:15 a.m. Ocean City Communications received an alert from a LPR located on Route 50 of a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was reported stolen out of Accomack County, VA. A description of the vehicle was broadcast by dispatchers and officers quickly located the vehicle parked in the area of Worcester Street and Philadelphia Avenue. The vehicle was occupied by three males who were each detained without incident upon officer arrival.

A male, later identified as Traquan A. Spady, 18, of Eastville, VA, was in the driver’s seat and was also in possession of an open container of alcohol. It was learned by officers that one of the males, later identified as Rontari M. Warren, 21, of Birdsnest, VA, was wanted out of Columbia, SC, for probation violation for second degree burglary. The third individual was released on scene.A short time later, a concerned citizen located a handgun near the scene of the incident. Officers determined that the handgun had been thrown out of the vehicle by Warren as officers initially approached the vehicle.

Ocean City police have charged Warren with two counts of possession of a handgun, two counts of illegal possession of a firearm, illegal possession of ammunition, possession of a stolen firearm, possession of a firearm after a prior felony conviction and knowingly altering a firearms identification number.

Deer Hunters Beware

Dennis Rodebaugh ran D&S Guide and Outfitters. Rodebaugh took mostly out-of-state clients on elk and deer hunts in the White River National Forest near Meeker, where they waited in tree stands for elk and deer to approach before shooting them. To attract the elk and deer, Rodebaugh spread salt around the base of the tree stands. Colorado law prohibited “baiting.” And selling wildlife taken in violation of state law is a federal crime under the Lacey Act. After an extensive investigation, Rodebaugh was indicted for several Lacey Act violations. A jury found him guilty on six counts. The district court sentenced him to 41 months in prison and three years of supervised release. He appealed, raising various trial and sentencing issues. Upon review, the Tenth Circuit affirmed the conviction and prison sentence, rejecting Rodebaugh’s challenges to the district court’s denial of a motion to suppress, the validity of the underlying Colorado regulations, the sufficiency of the evidence to support the conviction on each count, and the application of enhancements to the base offense level under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines.

For all those enthusiasts of old-fashioned means of land trave

l, we have an event you won’t want to miss! On September 19,2015 at Wrights Market on Rt.50/Ocean Gateway, between 10 and 4 you can look and marvel and oooh and aaah to your heart’s content! It’s the Barren Creek Heritage Car Show, this year In Memory of Ralph Hooper. Ralph, who passed away earlier this year was past President of Westside Historical Society, the sponsor of this Car Show. All who knew Ralph can attest to his pride in his 1950 Packard which he had restored and displayed at scores of events around the Shore.

Owners of antique, classic, and vintage cars, as well as old trucks and tractors, are invited to come and display your pride and joy vehicle! Registration begins at 10 but will continue until 3:30, as a cost of just $15 per vehicle. If you bring more than one, the cost of registering the second is just $5. There will be dash plaques for the first twenty vehicles registered. Six trophies, voted on by the participants and visitors to the Show, will be awarded. The six categories areBest Classic Car in Show (made between 1970 and 1990), Best Antique Car in show (made between 1940 and 1969), Best Vintage Car in show (made before 1940), Best Truck in Show, Best Tractor in Show, Youngsters’ Choice for Best in Show (only kids 14 and under can vote for this).

We are seeking sponsors for the Trophies, and donors of $100 will have their business or other name printed on a trophy, printed on the banner at the Show, and will be given recognition in advertising about the show. The deadline for becoming a Sponsor, however, is September 14. Email, phone, or write if you would like to become a Sponsor!

A SPECIAL ATTRACTION at this year’s show will be exhibits of Vintage Bicycles! In coordination with the Julia A. Purnell Museum in Snow Hill, we will be showing any old bikes that people would like to bring out.

There will be no registration fee for these bicycles, and no prizes, but we would just like to see how many vintage bike enthusiasts we have out there. Cindy Byrd, curator of the Purnell Museum, will be bring her 1939 Schwinn DX, the only model made that year. It’s a red beauty!! And how about a Hopalong Cassidy bike from the ‘50s?? Surely there are some beauties out there. They do not have to be restored; bring them along even in their “needing-some-love” state! If there is enough interest, maybe we can do a Bicycle Show next year!

This Show has another special attraction!! We are looking for folks interested in vintage Bicycles!

There will be music, a 50-50 raffle, and food! A fun day!! Mark your calendars!! For more information, write to Westside Historical Society at or P.O. Box 194, Mardela Springs MD 21837; or phone 410-726-8047!

One Of Britain’s Most Mysterious Murder Cases Was Just Connected To Bill Clinton

Conspiracy theorists who have followed the unusual number of dead bodies that seem to collect around the Clinton family have yet another one to add to the tally, as one of the United Kingdom’s most baffling unsolved murder cases has been linked to the former president.

Gareth Williams, a 31-year-old spy for Britain’s MI6 agency, was found dead in his London apartment five years ago after being stuffed in a padlocked duffel bag. No arrests were ever made, and little evidence was ever found.

Now, the U.K. Sun newspaper has confirmed that Williams had hacked secret data from formerPresident Clinton’s diary to discover the guest list at an event hosted by the former president.

That hacking, which was done as a favor for a friend, was a breach of security clearance. However, it also indicated that Williams had access to Clinton’s data as part of his role with MI6 and the joint U.K.-U.S. monitoring program called Echelon.

“The Clinton diary hack came at a time when Williams’ work with America was of the most sensitive nature,” a source within MI6 said.
