Poll: Crime Victims More Likely to Arm Themselves

Americans who have been the victims of crime are more likely to own a gun than those who have not been victims, a Galluppoll released Monday shows.

The polling company found that 33 percent of respondents who had been victims of crime over the past year owned a gun, while 28 percent of those who had not been victimized owned one. The findings represent a statistically significant difference, Gallup said.

The survey asked 11,165 adults about gun ownership and crime. It is part of the annual Gallup Poll Social Series.

Gallup said it could not definitively explain why crime victims are more likely to be armed with the data it collected, even if the answer seems apparent.


SU Police Earns Governor's Crime Prevention Award

SALISBURY, MD---The Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services recently honored the Salisbury University Police Department during the 37th annual Governor’s Crime Prevention Awards ceremony in Glen Burnie, MD.

SU Police received the department’s Category A Crime Prevention Award, recognizing its overall outstanding crime prevention program.

“Salisbury University Police believe that knowledge is power when it comes to campus and community safety,” said SU Police Chief Edwin Lashley. “We place a premium on educational programming for our students to help avoid unsafe situations or to be prepared if they occur. I am grateful for the work of all our officers in these areas. The recognition that safety is a top University priority and the support that has followed from the administration provides a solid foundation for our work.”

Agencies selected for the award must participate in programs recommended by the Maryland Community Crime Prevention Institute. They include personal and commercial security; training, media and public relations activities, an officer and citizen recognition program relating to crime prevention; and support of the “McGruff the Crime Dog” national crime prevention campaign.

Tax Code Compliance Costs Economy $1 Trillion Annually

The complexity of the tax code now costs the economy around $1 trillion per year, according to a report from the Tax Revolution Institute.

Title 26 of the U.S. Code has 74,608 pages and 2.4 million words. The IRS recently added 7.7 million words of tax regulations to help clarify what the code means, as well as 60,000 pages of case law for accounts and tax lawyers.

The report noted that the 32 volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica is 44 million words in length, which means that the tax code is nearly one-fourth of its length.


Iran sanctions renewal becomes law without Obama signature

In an unexpected reversal, President Barack Obama declined to sign a renewal of sanctions against Iran but let it become law anyway, in an apparent bid to alleviate Tehran's concerns that the U.S. is backsliding on the nuclear deal.

Although the White House had said that Obama was expected to sign the 10-year-renewal, the midnight deadline came and went Thursday with no approval from the president. White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama had decided to let it become law without his signature.

"The administration has, and continues to use, all of the necessary authorities to waive the relevant sanctions" lifted as part of the nuclear deal, Earnest said in a statement.

Under the Constitution, the president has 10 days after Congress passes a bill to sign it, veto it or let it become law with no signature if Congress is still in session. Although lawmakers have returned home for the holidays, Congress technically has not adjourned and is holding "pro-forma" sessions this week.


Iran Vows Nuclear Retaliation for U.S. Breach of Deal

Senior Iranian officials vowed on Wednesday to continue moving forward with nuclear weapons work and other banned activities as retaliation against the United States for breaching last year’s nuclear accord, according to reports in the country’s state-controlled media.

Iranian leaders instructed the country’s atomic energy organization to move forward with sensitive nuclear work, including the construction of nuclear-powered ships and submarines.

Further provocative actions will be announced in the coming days, according to these Iranian leaders, who described the country’s actions as revenge for recent moves by the U.S. Congress to extend sanctions on Iran, a move the Islamic Republic claims is a breach of the nuclear deal.

Iran’s latest moves have not elicited concern from Obama administration officials, who continue to pursue a series of measures meant to decrease international pressure on Tehran and provide it with greater financial resources.

Best Buy Workers Give Wii U To Teen Who Visited Nearly Every Day To Play Video Games

’Tis the season when we’re happy to hear stories of big-hearted folks out thereamong all the Grinches, people who take it upon themselves to make a stranger’s holiday merry and bright. Like the Best Buy employees in New York who bought a Wii U for a teenager who visited almost every day to play Smash Bros. at the store.

In a Dec. 7 video posted by a YouTube user who says that he’s a manager at Best Buy, the workers approach the teen as he’s sitting at his usual spot, in front of the store’s display verison of the console.

“We got you this Wii U so you don’t have to come here every day and play it,” the worker says, holding the box, adding, “No, for real, it’s for you,” as the teen seems dumbfounded that the console is really for him.

“This kid came in every single day to play the display Wii U, the employees in this store saw an opportunity to make a child smile and did just that,” the video’s description reads.


Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Finds a New Job

BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Stephanie Rawlings-Blake informed “colleagues & friends” via an eblast Wednesday that she is launching a consulting firm that would “leverage the contacts and context I have developed” as a city politician, according to the Baltimore Brew.

This announcement comes just a week after Catherine Pugh replaced Rawlings-Blake as Baltimore’s mayor.

SRB & Associates is the name of the firm incorporated by the law offices of her close friend, lobbyist Lisa Harris Jones, and is located above Cindy Wolf and Richard Foreman’s Petit Louis Bistro restaurant on Roland Park Avenue.


Stein Spent Nearly $1 Million of Recount Funds on Consultants, Staff, Admin Expenses

Recounts stalled in Pa., Mich.; Trump Gained 131 Net Votes in Wisconsin

Green Party nominee Jill Stein spent nearly $1 million of the funds she raised for recount efforts in three battleground states on consultants, staff, and administrative costs.

Stein, who pushed for recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan, raised $7.3 million for the efforts and said that “every dollar” went towards costs associated with the recount efforts. The group, which claimed costs associated with the recounts hit $7.4 million, upped their fundraising goal four times since first calling for recounts.

According to a breakdown of expenses contained on the fund’s website, Stein paid nearly $1 million on consultants and staff. The staff payroll tallied $212,500 while consultants pocketed $364,000. Administrative expenses, such as travel costs, ran $353,618. In all, $930,118 was used to pay consultants, staff, and administrative costs.

Filing fees in the three states cost $4,488,939, the group says. Wisconsin filing fees totaled $3,499,689, Pennsylvania fees were $16,000, and Michigan filing fees ran the group $973,250. Legal expenses cost the group $1.6 million.



News Media Blame Christie for Bill That Could Devastate Newspapers

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey has made no secret of his disdain for the news media, so when legislation that could hurt the state’s newspapers appeared suddenly this week, fingers pointed at the governor’s office.

Democratic lawmakers and newspaper industry officials said they suspected that Mr. Christie was pressing for quick passage of a bill that would eliminate the requirement for public notices to be printed. The change could cost the state’s already-strapped newspapers millions of dollars in advertising revenue.

“It’s a broadside against a free press, nothing more, nothing less,” said Assemblyman John Wisniewski, Democrat of Sayreville. “I think it’s revenge.”

Mr. Wisniewski, who is campaigning to succeed Mr. Christie in 2018, said he had heard from fellow lawmakers in Trenton that the bill came from the governor’s office. It is scheduled for hearings in the Legislature on Thursday, indicating that it has the support of President Stephen Sweeney of the Senate and Speaker Vincent Prieto of the Assembly, both Democrats.


Publishers Notes: It's about time elected officials cut off the failing newspaper industry. Public and Legal Notices are no longer read in newspapers because no one is buying them. The majority of people are now going to social media/blogs to get their non fake news 100 to 1. Cut the newspapers off, I say and waste no time doing so. I'll add, the NORMAL rater for a bankruptcy in a newspaper is, (GET THIS) around $7,000.00. An Obituary averages $300.00. The blogs do not have the overhead and can blow away the prices of the Main Stream Media. Our taxes, (nation wide) would drop in the billions if they simply required a certain amount of traffic and the LOWEST BIDDER. Bring it on!

White House Taskforce Highlights Baltimore Progress, Makes Recommendations

After 18 months, a White House taskforce convened to tackle social and economic issues in Baltimore has identified priorities for federal assistance and plans for long-term prosperity in Baltimore.

"The Taskforce recommends that moving forward Federal agencies working in Baltimore sustain their existing investments, maintain interagency coordination, continue to be proactive, work to understand Baltimore’s vision and priorities, and continue to pilot programs in the City," reads the executive summary of the report published Wednesday. "Local and regional Federal field offices will continue to coordinate their work and be a point of entry into the Federal government for Baltimore City leaders."

City leaders and elected officials, including Mayor Catherine Pugh and the city's members of Congress, will discuss the report's findings at an event in Fells Point Wednesday afternoon.

The taskforce included representatives from a number of cabinet-level departments, as well as the General Services Administration, National Endowment for the Arts and the Small Business Administration. It's separate from ongoing negotiations between the city and the Justice Department on a consent decree for city police.


Newt Gingrich Slams ‘Idiots’ in Media

'When the propaganda media smeared Trump, the American people sided with Trump'

Newt Gingrich lashed out at members of the “propaganda media” on Tuesday, calling them “idiots” who can’t handle “the level of talent they are dealing with” in President-elect Donald Trump.

In a speech at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., the former House speaker outlined how Trump used his mastery of the media to overcome negative coverage throughout the campaign.

“One of the great disgraces of the propaganda media—all of us on the right should drop the term news media until they earn it—is that it cannot come to grips with the level of talent that it is dealing with,” Gingrich said. “He had an instinct for totally dominating the media.”

Unlike other politicians, Trump had the “guts” to stand up to the media and challenge their reporting, Gingrich said.

“If you attack Trump, he immediately counter-attacks,” Gingrich explained. “The media doesn’t understand—it’s not a function of personality. He learned with the New York media that you hit back as fast as you can so you’re the next edition.”

“It’s part of his style,” Gingrich said. “If you show him an opening, he’ll take it.”


Oops! Stein's Recount Turns Up More Votes Than Voters in Detroit

The recount crusade of Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein may have turned up massive voter irregularities, but they're not the kind Democrats were hoping to find.

In heavily-Democratic Detroit, more votes than voters were found across the city and now state Republicans are calling for an investigation.

According to the Detroit News, voting machines in more than one-third of Detroit precincts counted more votes than the actual number of voters who showed up.

The statewide recount, which was stopped by a judge on Friday, could not be performed in those precincts and others.


Democrats Not Excited About Party’s Future

Democrats are not excited about the outlook of their party after a stunning defeat in November, according to a new poll.

A mere 13 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters are excited about their party’s future, versus 35 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters who feel the same, according to a HuffPost/YouGov survey released Sunday.

While roughly half of Democrats said they feel satisfied about their party’s prospects moving forward, a quarter are dissatisfied, while another 13 percent are upset.

Meanwhile, Republicans are far more optimistic. Nearly three-quarters of GOP voters said they are satisfied, while 16 percent are dissatisfied and 6 percent are upset.

The responses from Democratic voters have significantly shifted since August when polls showed Democrat Hillary Clinton with a clear lead over Republican opponent Donald Trump. At the time, 30 percent of Democratic voters were enthusiastic about the party’s future compared to just 8 percent of Republican voters.

JUST IN: Jurors Convict Dylann Roof On All Counts In Church Slayings

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Dylann Roof was convicted Thursday in the chilling attack on nine black church members who were shot to death last year during a Bible study, affirming the prosecution’s portrayal of a young white man who hoped the slayings would start a race war or bring back segregation.

Instead, the single biggest change to emerge from the June 17, 2015, slayings that shocked the nation was the removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Statehouse, where it had flown for 50 years over the Capitol or on the grounds. Roof appeared with the flag in several photos in a racist manifesto.

In his confession to the FBI, the gunman said he carried out the killings after researching “black on white crime” on the internet. He said he chose a church because that setting posed little danger to him.

Roof just stared ahead — much as he did the entire trial — as the verdict was read.


Pressing Your Phone Camera Against Your Finger Will Not Measure Your Blood Pressure

The tiny sensors in our smartphones can do amazing things, but what they cannot do is substitute for a blood pressure cuff. That’s unfortunate, because having your blood pressure measured can be painful and unpleasant. However, one app-maker ran afoul of federal regulators by claiming that your smartphone camera could be used to accurately check your vitals.

According to the Federal Trade Commission, developer Aura’s Instant Blood Pressure app did three things to cross the legal line.

First, it marketed the app by bragging about how accurate it is compared to a blood pressure cuff, which the FTC points out is not actually the case.

Second, the company’s own CEO left a review in Apple’s App Store without disclosing his relationship to the company.

Finally, the company’s website was full of enthusiastic testimonials, which the FTC determined were from employees and their family members.


Politico Fires Writer After She Suggests Trump Is Having Sex With Ivanka

Julia Ioffe, a former contributing writer for Politico Magazine who will be joining The Atlantic as a reporter in January, suggested Wednesday on Twitter that President-elect Donald Trump is having sex with his daughter Ivanka.

Politico told The Daily Caller that the tweet accelerated the timeline of her departure, and that Ioffe is no longer with the publication, effective “immediately.”

“This tweet is completely unacceptable and is an obvious violation of POLITICO standards,” a Politico source told TheDC. “Julia Ioffe is no longer with the publication.”

Ioffe tweeted out a link of a news report saying Ivanka will be using office space in the White House typically reserved for the first lady and commented, “Either Trump is fucking his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”

Comcast Customers: Your ‘Broadcast TV’ & ‘Regional Sports’ Fees Are Going Up 50%

The new year brings new things, and at this point it’s all but traditional for cable and satellite companies to announce customers will face higher charges in January than in the December before. But Comcast isn’t just increasing its bundle rates a few percentage points in 2017; it’s going to significantly increase how much all of its pay-TV customers pay for a pair of highly controversial fees.

Comcast customers around the nation have received notices this month that prices are indeed going up as of Jan. 1, 2017. And that includes all prices — TV bundles, double- and triple-play bundles, internet and phone prices, all of it, with some geographic variation. But the most egregious increase is perhaps in two line-item fees that Comcast doesn’t include in its bundle pricing: the “Broadcast TV” and “Regional Sports” fees.

When we broke down a real-life Comcast bill in February, our customer was paying a total of $8 for the Broadcast TV and Regional Sports fees.

Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Press Releases

On 12/12/2016 at approximately 0018 hours, Worcester County Sheriff's Office Deputies responded to Cropper Court, Pocomoke City, Maryland in reference to a suspicious vehicle complaint. Deputies were advised of a vehicle parked in the rear of a, un occupied residence.

Upon arrival, Deputies located a black Pontiac sedan parked in the back yard. Moments later, a male departed the residence who was identified as Larry Randolph Marshall Jr. 27, of Snow Hill, Md. Mr. Marshall was removing property from the residence when Deputy's made contact with him. Further inspection of the residence revealed the rear door was forced open as the glass window and locking mechanisms were damaged.

Based on the Deputy's investigation, Marshall was ultimately arrested and charged with Burglary-Third Degree, Theft- 100 to 1,000, and MDOP-less than 1,000. Marshall was later held on a $15,000 bond at the Worcester County Detention Center.

On December 5, 2016 at approximately 0706 hours, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to the B & B Apartments on Keyser Point Rd in West Ocean City, for a trespassing complaint. Allegedly a suspect had been banging on the doors and windows of one of the apartments, after being trespassed from the property the previous evening.

Upon arrival the Deputies observed the suspect, later identified as Kevin Paul Joy, 59, of West Ocean City, standing on the porch area in front of the door of one of the apartments. Through investigation it was determined that Mr. Joy did not reside at any apartment on the property, and had been issued a trespass warning by the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Deputies the previous evening.

At approximately 0721 hours Mr. Joy was placed under arrest for trespassing. Mr. Joy was taken before the Worcester County District Court Commissioner, where he was released on his own recognizance, and is awaiting trial.

The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation has been investigating a series of thefts from vehicles in the West Ocean City, Ocean City, Ocean Pines, Glen Riddle, and the Berlin Walmart area. With the assistance of Ocean City Police, Ocean Pines Police, Worcester County Sheriff’s Office and Maryland State Police, a search warrant was completed on Tuesday evening on a suspect’s residence in West Ocean City. The Worcester County Bureau of Investigation had located several dozen ladies purses and wallets that were taken from unlocked vehicles. The wallets and purses had no identification in them.

The Worcester County Bureau of Investigations is asking for the public’s help. It is believed that over 200 vehicles were broken into by suspects. If you have been a victim of a theft from your vehicle, please contact the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office at 410-632-1111 and or the Maryland State Police (410) 641-3101 and report your theft as soon as possible.

What Most Parents Want For Christmas

My children each year ask me the same question. After thinking about it, I decided I’d give them my real answer:

What do I want for Christmas? I want you. I want you to keep coming around, I want you to bring your kids around, I want you to ask me questions, ask my advice, tell me your problems, ask for my opinion, ask for my help. I want you to come over and rant about your problems, rant about life, whatever. Tell me about your job, your worries, your spouse, your kids, you…r fur babies. I want you to continue sharing your life with me. Come over and laugh with me, or laugh at me, I don’t care. Hearing you laugh is music to me.

I spent the better part of my life raising you the best way i knew how, and I’m not bragging, but i did a pretty darn good job. Now, give me time to sit back and admire my work, I’m pretty proud of it.

Raid my refrigerator, help yourself, I really don’t mind. In fact, I wouldn’t want it any other way.

I want you to spend your money making a better life for you and your family, I have the things I need. I want to see you happy and healthy. When you ask me what I want for Christmas, I say “nothing” because you’ve already been giving me my gift all year. I want you.

Not one of us had a bad experience at the OC Fish Co. If you're a big eater and want 20 ounces, order two specials because it's well worth it for $20.00. 

Jim Brown: People Going Against the Election Are Going Against America

During the Tuesday CNN “Anderson Cooper 360” broadcast, NFL legend Jim Brown slammed election protesters, saying they are “going against America” because the country fought for the right to free elections.

“In my opinion, people that go against the election are going against America” Brown said. “We have free elections, everybody can vote. We fought for that, we brag about that, and we know we’re going to have a winner and we’re going to have a loser. So, my point is if we respect the winner and approach that person and have access to that person and that person will look at what we’re presenting, that’s not too bad.”


The REAL Reason the Elites Want to Ban Cash

As we keep warning, the War on Cash is set to accelerate.

If you want proof of this, consider that India has not backed down on its cash ban in any way shape or form… despite the fact that the cash ban has been a complete disaster politically with widespread protests.


Because it is accomplishing the Elites’ Central Planning goals:

…Indians are switching to electronic payments more rapidly than many experts had predicted, and in speaking of the recent currency moves, Mr. Modi has begun emphasizing the benefits of a cashless economy over the anticorruption fight.

Source: NY Times.

Other countries are taking note that you can impose a major cash ban without committing political suicide. Australia is now pushing for an end to $100 bills.

SAY goodbye to the $100 note.

Australia looks set to follow in the footsteps of Venezuela and India by abolishing the country’s highest-denomination banknote in a bid to crack down on the “black economy”.

Speaking to ABC radio on Wednesday, Revenue and Financial Services Minister Kelly O’Dwyer flagged a review of the $100 note and cash payments over certain limits as the government looks to recoup billions in unpaid tax.


Judge Deals Deathblow to Anti-Trump “Faithless Electors”

PR firm behind "faithless electors" tied to Clinton and Obama

A federal judge dealt a deathblow to “faithless electors” who challenged Colorado’s law requiring electors to vote for the candidate who won the state’s popular vote in November.

A lawsuit was brought forward to set a legal precedent across the United States, unbinding electors from their requirement to vote for the candidate who won the popular vote in their respective states in order to convince enough electors to switch their vote for Hillary Clinton or an establishment Republican, stealing the election from Donald Trump.

United States District Judge Wiley Daniel denied the injunction request from Polly Baca and Robert Nemanich, two Colorado electors who argued that the law binding their vote to Hillary Clinton, the state’s popular vote winner, violated their First Amendment rights and the intent of the framers of the Constitution.


Ocean City Exploring ‘Pay By Plate’ Parking System Over Current ‘Pay And Display’

OCEAN CITY – Ocean City’s transportation committee is considering recommendations to upgrade or replace existing payment methods at the Inlet, along streets and in public parking lots.

At Tuesday’s meeting, Public Works Deputy Director John VanFossen presented members with options that could replace faulty equipment, expedite the payment process and allow police to affectively enforce parking rules.

Multiple government agencies, including public works, police, budgeting and engineering departments, created the suggestions for the committee to discuss in the preliminary meeting.

Along the streets and in public parking lots, VanFossen and his team recommended to the committee that the town eliminate the “pay and display” ticket machines for a newer “pay by plate” method, which allows users to purchase time by entering their car’s license plate number.

“We need to look at differences in some newer technology and some of the stuff that is out there on the market,” he said. “When we started many years ago, there were very few players available in the United States. Today there is multiple players and vendors to offer various types of multi-space parking.”


Ex-British ambassador claims Clinton emails were given to him by an intermediary for 'disgusted' Democrats

A Wikileaks envoy claims he personally received Clinton campaign emails in a park in Washington D.C. after they were leaked by 'disgusted' whisteblowers - and that they were not hacked by Russia.

Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, told that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

'Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians,' said Murray in an interview with on Tuesday. 'The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.'

His account contradicts directly the version of how thousands of Democratic emails were published before the election being advanced by U.S. intelligence.

Murray insisted that the DNC and Podesta emails published by Wikileaks did not come from the Russians, and were given to the group by Americans who had authorized access to the information.

He said the leakers were motivated by 'disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.'

Record number of Somalis entering America as refugees

While everyone is focused on the debate over Syrian refugees, the Obama administration has admitted more refugees from Somalia than even from Syria. Even though over two decades have elapsed since the collapse of the Somali government, we are taking in refugees from this extremely dangerous country at the fastest pace ever.

As of December 13, we’ve admitted a total of 21,854 total refugees for FY 2017, according to the State Department’s refugee database. That is a pace we have not seen since the fall of the Soviet Union. More disturbingly, we’ve admitted 2,836 refugees from Syria and 3,014 from Somalia, almost all of them Muslim. Once again, Minnesota (364) and Ohio (334) are being saddled with more refugees from Somalia despite the terror recruiting problems in Minneapolis and Columbus.

Obama is also continuing his social transformation by seeding small-to-mid-sized cities with relatively large sums of Somali and Syrian refugees. A quick search of the database shows that places like Bowling Green, Ky., Owensboro, Ky., Glendale, Ariz., and Erie, Penn have all been seeded with more Middle Eastern refugees than the entire state of New Jersey.

This is a clear violation of the refugee law.

SHE MADE IT UP: NYPD Arrests Muslim Girl Who Claimed Attack by Trump Supporters

New York City college student Yasmin Seweid who claimed to be the victim of a hate crime by Trump supporters is under arrest and charged with filing a false report, a police source told The New York Daily News.

The 18-year-old Seweid caused quite the media stir with her sensationalized account of Trump supporters attacking her on the subway. She claimed three men attempted to pull off her hijab while calling her a terrorist and yelling Trump’s name. All this happened, she said, while New Yorkers sat idly by and watched her get assaulted.

The police source told The News that police gave Seweid numerous opportunities to recant her story but she kept sticking to it. Finally, on Wednesday, she admitted she made the whole thing up, citing “family problems.”

Police say there was many inconsistencies in her story initially, but at first they assumed that was typical of being traumatized. They also claim the investigation into the false hate crime required “a lot” of resources.

The many media outlets' initial reporting of the fake hate crime did not include qualifiers like “alleged” and “claimed.” Instead they reported the hoax crime as a fact.

Knightstown, Indiana flap over cross display is personal

Judy Tompkins of Knightstown is married to Joe Tompkins, but not that Joe Tompkins. But not everyone knows the difference, and lately she has been fielding abusive, misdirected phone calls.

"It's like, if you'll pardon me, 'You (expletive)!'" she said. "One man said, 'You won't be able to buy oxygen in your town.' "

That unusual comment may have referenced Judy Tompkins' husband, who has lung cancer. He also carries a Bible with him at all times, she said, and he disagrees strongly with the stand taken by his son, also named Joe Tompkins, for whom the tough talk likely is meant.

The younger Tompkins caused a firestorm in the small Henry County town this past week by joining forces with the ACLU's Indiana chapter to file a lawsuit forcing the removal of a cross from atop a giant Christmas tree in the town square. On Monday, Knightstown's town council ordered the cross removed to avoid a court case it said it couldn't win.

The capitulation only fueled passions. Dozens of Knightstown residents took to the streets Tuesday to protest the council's decision and to hand out small wooden crosses to passers-by. Hundreds of others erected crosses in their yards and storefronts. Some even mounted them on their cars.

Ship wrecked off Florida might have changed history

Miami (AFP) - Treasure hunters have apparently found the 500-year-old remains of a naval expedition led by a colonizer who could have changed Florida's history, making it French-speaking at least for a while.

The big question is if the shipwreck is that of "La Trinite," the 32-gun flagship of a fleet led by Jean Ribault, a French navigator who tried to establish a Protestant colony in the southeast US under orders from King Charles IX.

They probably are, say authorities in Florida, the French government and independent archeologists.

And if they in fact are, this is an unparalleled find, said John de Bry, director of the Center for Historical Archeology, a not-for-profit organization.

"If it turns out to be 'La Trinite,' it is the most important, historically and archaeologically, the most important shipwreck ever found in North America," he told AFP.


Uptick in hate crimes seen in DC, Montgomery Co.

WASHINGTON — In the politically charged atmosphere of 2016, hate crimes are getting increasing attention and seem to be happening more frequently. A breakdown of the numbers in D.C. and Maryland’s largest counties show, in fact, there is an uptick in crimes motivated by hate.

So far this year in the nation’s capital, there have been 70 hate-based crimes, a 6 percent increase from the year before.

“I’m not sure the uptick in reporting is a sign of a significant problem. Whenever you have hate crimes, of course it’s a problem. It could be the fact that those in the community are sensitive to it,” said Interim D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham in an interview with WTOP.

If D.C. police officers are able to prove hate was a motive in the crime, it enhances the charges against a suspect.


Former SEAL Ryan Zinke tapped to lead Trump's Interior Department

Ryan Zinke, a Congressman from Montana made no secret of his ambitions to join a Donald Trump Cabinet, yet his nomination as Interior secretary is in some ways an unlikely fit for the retired U.S. Navy SEAL.

Zinke, 55, was an early supporter of the president-elect and publicly expressed his interest in a Cabinet post when Trump visited Montana in May.

Like other Western states, Montana's wide-open, rugged landscape has a huge federal presence. The Interior Department and other U.S. agencies control almost a third of its land and even more of the underground 'mineral estate' that holds vast amounts of coal, oil and natural gas.


Bad A$$ Female Army Rangers BUT the Military is NOT a Social Experiment Final Thoughts Tomi Lahren

The Federal Reserve And The Destruction Of The American Dream

“Government is a just execution of the laws, which were instituted by the people for their people’s preservation: but if the people’s implements, to whom they have trusted the execution of those laws, or any power for their preservation, should convert such execution to their destruction, have they not the right to resume the power they once delegated, and to punish their servants who have abused it?”

—John Wilkes, The North Briton, October 19, 1762

No truer words have ever been penned to the betterment of a people struggling to break free of tyranny. Indeed, John Wilkes is considered by some historians to be the primary source of inspiration for revolutionary colonial Americans given his staunch defense of religious liberty, prisoners’ rights and freedom of the press, rights we hold dear to this day.

So idolized was Wilkes, our forefathers named countless towns and babies in his name, quite the honor all things considered. You see, Wilkes was also an infamous pornographer and relished his notoriety, raising self-promotion to an art form. Even Benjamin Franklin was disturbed by the raunchy rake, which is saying something considering Franklin’s own proclivity for dalliances.

But what if the colonials, the “We the People” to be, assigned added value to Wilkes’ brand of self-cultivated ill-repute? What if he rose to such fascinating infamy precisely because he launched vicious attacks on the privileged? What better way to become a champion of the powerless? Ring any bells?

On November 8, 2016, a stunned TV audience bore witness to Wilkes’ legacy playing out across this great land. Millions of voters joined forces to punish their elected servants who had so egregiously abused their power. The establishment was disenfranchised overnight.


New autopsy: man in police struggle died of asphyxiation

BALTIMORE (AP) — An independent autopsy on a man who had a fatal encounter with Baltimore police says he died of asphyxiation while being restrained, not of a heart condition as the state’s autopsy found.

Tyrone West, 44, died after a struggle with police following a July 2013 traffic stop. The Maryland Office of the Medical Examiner ruled that he died of a heart condition in extremely hot weather.

His sister, Tawanda Jones, who holds a weekly vigil seeking justice in West’s death, commissioned the new autopsy. Jones has urged Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby to reopen the case, but Mosby has said that without new evidence, she won’t.

West, who is African-American, died after being arrested on July 18, 2013. Police said they pulled the man over for backing down a street into an intersection. After officers asked West to get out of the car and sit on the curb, they spotted a bulge in one of his socks and suspected drugs, police have said.


The Clinton Blame Game

Electoral College, Russian hacking, Comey, fake news, Electoral College, Russian hacking, Comey, fake news...

Hillary Clinton’s defeat in the 2016 presidential election inevitably led to serious people discussing how such a catastrophic result could have happened.

While some pointed to Clinton’s persistent dishonesty over her private email server, running a poor campaign, or her establishment candidacy in a change year, other, deeper thinkers have found better scapegoats for keeping her from the White House.

The main culprits for Clinton losing, if you take a gander at cable news, are the Electoral College, Russian hacking, FBI Director James Comey, and fake news:

The Electoral College, for being totally unfair, even though she employed a strategy to reach the requisite 270 electoral votes and was confident of the “Blue Wall” of states that would ensure her victory.


Don't Believe Voter Fraud Exists, Released From Left Wing Media MSN

Detroit Machines Registered More Votes Than Voters

Voting machines in over one-third of Detroit precincts registered more ballots cast in the Nov. 8 presidential election than the number of voters tallied by poll workers, the Detroit News reported Tuesday.

Reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett revealed optical scanners registered more ballots cast than the number of voters recorded in poll books in 37 percent of Detroit precincts. These discrepancies have sparked plans for an audit by Michigan State Secretary Ruth Johnson’s office, Elections Director Chris Thomas told the newspaper Monday.

President-elect Donald Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes but his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton picked up more votes in Detroit and Wayne County. Former Green Party nominee Jill Stein had led the vote recount effort in Michigan but Detroit’s precincts were among those not recounted due to the Michigan Supreme Court’s decision Friday to end the recount process.


First Amendment battle: N.J. judge bars newspaper from publishing articles

A New Jersey judge has ordered the Trentonian, a daily newspaper in the Garden State, to halt publication of any articles pertaining to an ongoing child abuse case in a ruling that is inherently at odds with the First Amendment.

Since October, reporter Isaac Avilucea has been writing about a 5-year-old Trenton boy who brought heroin and crack to his school, which resulted in the child being taken from his parents:

A city boy who took heroin to school in his lunch box last month has been taken away from his family and placed in foster care after a teacher at his school told investigators she found crack cocaine inside his folder this week.

From the little boy’s mother, Avilucea also obtained a child abuse complaint, which was filed by the New Jersey Division of Child Protection, that sought to remove him his parents’ custody. The mother’s decision to give the complaint to the reporter was in violation of New Jersey law, according to the Washington Post:


Harvard study says soda tax would have health benefit if implemented in Baltimore

A tax on soda and other sugary drinks in Baltimore could help reduce diabetes and obesity in the city, while generating $25.6 million for health programs, researchers at Harvard's school of public health reported Wednesday.

The researchers, who looked at the impact of an excise tax on sugary beverages on 15 major cities, said all would see significant health and economic benefits.

The study was commissioned by Healthy Food America, an advocacy group that promotes such taxes.

"We are hoping that by showing the potential significance of this, more people will consider a tax in their communities," said Jim Krieger, executive director of Healthy Food America.


The Claws Come Out! Hillary Staffers Rip Huma In Shocking Profile

Hillary Clinton insiders have turned their backs on Huma Abedin after a devastating election loss.

In a shocking new profile published in “Vanity Fair” Wednesday, former advisers ripped into one of Clinton’s closest aides — claiming she enjoyed the limelight a little too much and suffocated Clinton to where she couldn’t embrace new campaign ideas.

“I really don’t give a shit about what happens to Huma to be honest with you,” one adviser said. (RELATED: Huma Abedin Spotted In Public For The First Time Since Hillary Clinton’s Loss)

“She was enjoying the red carpet and enjoying the photo spreads much too much in my opinion,” another added. “She enjoyed being a celebrity too much.”


Coach Hal Chernoff Writes About His Main Street Gym Memories

Main St Gym spent over 20 years in the old Trailways bus garage on Main St. This week they tore it down. A lot of blood sweat and tears filled that place and not to mention some very good boxer and some that are now gone. Lots of good memories were there and we were truly one with the building,,,,If it was cold, we were cold. If it was hot, we were hot, If it rained we got wet. We now have a beautiful gym but only the old timers remember the grit it took to train in that old building. Many will never know, But I remember,,,,Down on Main St.

Haunting footage captures an ISIS suicide bomber calmly strolling into a Cairo church before killing 25 Christians in a savage attack

A further 49 were wounded in the savage attack on Sunday.


How Clinton lost Michigan — and blew the election

Across battlegrounds, Democrats blame HQ’s stubborn commitment to a one-size-fits-all strategy.

Everybody could see Hillary Clinton was cooked in Iowa. So when, a week-and-a-half out, the Service Employees International Union started hearing anxiety out of Michigan, union officials decided to reroute their volunteers, giving a desperate team on the ground around Detroit some hope.

They started prepping meals and organizing hotel rooms.

SEIU — which had wanted to go to Michigan from the beginning, but been ordered not to — dialed Clinton’s top campaign aides to tell them about the new plan. According to several people familiar with the call, Brooklyn was furious.

Turn that bus around, the Clinton team ordered SEIU. Those volunteers needed to stay in Iowa to fool Donald Trump into competing there, not drive to Michigan, where the Democrat’s models projected a 5-point win through the morning of Election Day.

Michigan organizers were shocked. It was the latest case of Brooklyn ignoring on-the-ground intel and pleas for help in a race that they felt slipping away at the end.

“They believed they were more experienced, which they were. They believed they were smarter, which they weren’t,” said Donnie Fowler, who was consulting for the Democratic National Committee during the final months of the campaign. “They believed they had better information, which they didn’t.”

GOP Rep Slams Army for Renewed Probe Into ‘American Hero’ Who Killed Taliban Bomb Maker

A Republican congressman is slamming the U.S. Army for reopening its investigation into the death of a suspected Taliban bomb maker in Afghanistan in 2010.

A five-year investigation could not substantiate the Army’s allegation that former Maj. Mathew Golsteyn violated the law of armed conflict after the former Green Beret allegedly disclosed to the CIA during a job interview that he he killed an insurgent believed to be a bomb maker in Marjah.

However, the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command recently reopened the investigation after Golsteyn acknowledged that he killed the Taliban bomb maker during an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier in November.

The development led Rep. Duncan Hunter (R., Calif.), a Marine Corps veteran, to accuse the service of a “reckless and retaliatory pursuit” against Golsteyn and to signal to Army Secretary Eric Fanning and Gen. Mark Milley, the Army chief of staff, his embarrassment at the development.

Joe Kasper, Hunter’s chief of staff, told the Washington Free Beacon that Hunter communicated with Fanning and Milley on Thursday, after sending a letter to them accusing the Criminal Investigation Command of unfairly targeting Golsteyn.

"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."

"A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity -- as liberals do.
A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population -- as liberals do.
And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state -- as liberals do."

"The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious."

SU Foundation to Purchase 8.5 Acres on Route 13

SALISBURY, MD---The Salisbury University Foundation’s Board of Directors recently approved the purchase of some 8.5 acres of land south of main campus on Route 13. The properties include the Court Plaza Shopping Center, home to several businesses; the former Temple Hill Motel, which is currently boarded up and closed; and 307 Kay Avenue, a commercial office building also in use. The purchase price is $6 million.

This will bolster the campus footprint to its largest size to date — over 200 acres.

According to SU Foundation officials, Court Plaza will remain in operation. All existing leases will be honored and other businesses will be encouraged to locate there. Leases in the Kay Avenue property also will continue. The Temple Hill buildings will be demolished.

No decision on future SU use of the properties has been made.

“The mission of the Salisbury University Foundation, Inc., is to accumulate funds and investments that enrich the educational programs and activities benefiting SU and its students,” said Bob Moore, Foundation Board chairman. “The location of the properties, fairly contiguous to campus, was significant. It gives the University flexibility in the near and long term future for growth and expansion.”

The Old Man

Three days ago, an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench.

He spoke to the Marine standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton.”

The Marine replied, “Sir, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn't reside here.”

The old man said, “Okay,” and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton”. The Marine again told the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mrs. Clinton is not President and doesn't reside here.” The man thanked him and again walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same Marine, saying “I would like to go in and meet with President Hillary Clinton.”

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mrs. Clinton. I've told you already several times that Mrs. Clinton is not the President and doesn't reside here. Don't you understand?”

The old man answered, “Oh, I understand you fine. I just love hearing your answer!”

The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, “See you tomorrow."
