Ex-Clinton Aide to Establishment: Only Working Together Can Stop Trump

‘Peegate’ dossier story showed both the Left and Right establishment tried to stop Trump from becoming president

Brian Fallon, press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, says both the Left and the Right separately attempted to halt President Trump from winning the 2016 election, after it was reported that the conservative Washington Free Beacon was the original funder of an anti-Trump opposition research project with Fusion GPS.

“Only by working together will we succeed,” Fallon added in a tweet Friday evening.
The Free Beacon discontinued funding the project in the spring of 2016, during the primary season. Fusion GPS was then hired by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee up until a few days before the November election.

Maine woman killed by hunter on first day of deer season

A woman has been killed in a hunting accident on the first day of deer season in Maine.

Karen Wrentzel, 34, was shot dead around 10.30am on Saturday morning in a heavily wooded area near Hebron, Maine, in the first hunting fatality the state has seen in four years.

Family members said that Wrentzel was on her own property digging for rocks and gems when the incident occurred.

Investigators say a 38-year-old man who was out hunting with his father fired the fatal shot. The shooter's name has not been released.


The US Government Quietly Added $200 Billion To The National Debt This Month Alone

There’s been something happening this month that very few people have noticed.

It’s been lost beneath all the other headline-dominating news, from the Las Vegas shooting to Harvey Weinstein to the Mueller investigation.

But very quietly behind the scenes there’s been an extremely rapid uptick in the US national debt.

In the month of October alone, the US national debt has soared by nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars.



Classics for a Cause is a program founded by Kieran Murphy and Kaya Manizade in 2013. The initial purpose of the program was to give exposure to young, local musicians while raising money for the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council’s Instrument Barn. The Instrument Barn collects used instruments from the community and donates them to students who wish to learn music but cannot afford an instrument.

Trump Calls For Prosecution Of Democrats: 'Do Something'

Comments come after reports of impending indictments from Mueller

President Trump responded to reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is about to indict people in his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election by pointing the finger at Democrats.

Trump said the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with the Kremlin is “phony,” “bad for our country,” a “witch hunt,” and “evil politics.”

He added the news that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee paid for the unverified dossier alleging scandalous behavior by Trump has united Republicans.

“Never seen such Republican ANGER & UNITY as I have concerning the lack of investigation on Clinton made Fake Dossier (now $12,000,000?), the Uranium to Russia deal, the 33,000 plus deleted Emails, the Comey fix and so much more,” Trump tweeted.


The The Mother of All Scandals

There is an answer to Hillary’s question, “What Happened?”

And yes, it should be considered a dumb question rather than a book title. But the short answer to her question is: She fooled almost the entire left, for over two decades. Oh wait, that was a book title, not a question.

And therein lies her biggest problem. She’s not really asking the question as she should be, she’s not reflecting. Instead, she’s wagging a finger and blaming everyone else for her loss.

Back to the Clintons fooling the left. Let’s start counting the ways. She was not just smart, she was the smartest woman ever. She was fully competent and capable in everything. She fought bravely for all the right issues. She was more qualified to be President than anyone who preceded her. She was, and is, the bright moral compass pointing the way forward to the left (who they believe should be all of us). She was the Yin to her husband’s Yang. They were the best power couple ever, a beacon of truth shining in the darkness.

Except they weren’t. She has proved that over time, and her book tour is confirming it.


Edward Klein: New Book Reveals FBI Report on Deep State's ‘All Out War’ to Destroy Trump

The mainstream media’s effort to cast doubt on the existence of the Deep State has been dealt a stunning body blow by an FBI report on rogue elements within the permanent federal bureaucracy.

After conducting 2,000 interviews, the FBI’s field offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York compiled a 1,400-word report on the Deep State last summer for then-Director James Comey. The field report is being published for the first time in my new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

“The Bureau has gotten actionable intelligence that there is, within the federal government, a growing and organized movement to block or interfere with administration policy decisions,” the report states.


Prius (D)riving NY Legislator Fakes PTSD Panic Attack To Get Out Of Minor Speeding Ticket

Ulster County, N.Y. legislator Jennifer Schwartz Berky (D) – who is up for reelection Nov. 7, put on quite an act for a local police officer Gary Short after she was pulled her over for driving 43 mph in a 30 mph zone while talking on her cell phone.

A 26-minute video of the May 2017 incident was released last Tuesday during an Ulster Town Board meeting, and features a meltdown of epic proportions.

After Berky failed to impress officer Short by casually mentioning “I work for the county government, I’m a county legislator,” she immediately shifted into the victim role and proceeded to have histrionic tantrum. “Please don’t give me a ticket, I’m broke,” Berky cried, adding “I’m completely broke, and if you tell people, it’s going to hurt me. I’m totally broke. I made $20,000 last year. Please don’t give me a ticket.”

Officer Short – a consummate professional throughout the encounter, returns to his squad car to run Berky’s information, when Berky gets out of her car and fakes a panic attack, while on the phone, claiming PTSD.


Christie: Leak of Reported Indictment in Russia Probe ‘Could Be a Crime’

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while discussing a potential indictment coming in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said the leak to the media could be a crime.

Christie said, “First off, it’s supposed to be kept a secret … There are very strict criminal laws about disclosing grand jury information. Now, depending on who disclosed this to CNN, it could be a crime.”

He added, “As a prosecutor, I can tell you, that was the thing that we emphasized the most with our prosecutors and our agents was, ‘Let me tell you, something, we will prosecute you if we find out you leaked this stuff. "



Obama Paid Nearly $1 Million To Law Firm That Hired Fusion GPS

"At the same time that Hillary’s campaign, Obama’s campaign organization, and the DNC were simultaneously paying Perkins Coie, the spouse of one of Fusion GPS’s key employees was working directly for Obama in the West Wing."

Just days after The Washington Post revealed that Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Convention (DNC) funded Fusion GPS as they produced the unverified Trump dossier, a new report indicates that former President Barack Obama's campaign organization might have played a part in financing the project as well.

Records filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) revealed that Obama’s official campaign organization, Obama For America (OFA), has given over $972,000 to Perkins Coie since last year — the same law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC which hired Fusion GPS to conduct “research” on then-candidate Donald Trump, The Federalist reported.


Concealed Carry on the March

What a difference a generation can make. In 1987 crime in the United States was out of control. That same year Gallup asked Americans if they would support a ban on handguns, and a worrying forty-two percent answered “yes.”

While almost half the country wanted to ban handguns, nine states were trying something different. “Shall issue” concealed-carry laws were passed, meaning non-felons could apply for a license to carry a concealed handgun and their state government was obliged to respect their right to carry for self-defense.

Meanwhile forty states had either “May Issue” laws in place – meaning the state had discretion in the matter, typically resulting in denial – or no law respecting a citizen’s right to carry a concealed handgun for personal protection.

Just one state – Vermont – required no license. Any American citizen could carry a concealed handgun in the Green Mountain State.

The anti-gun crowd predicted blood in the streets and Wild West shootouts at the local supermarket. They said crime and violence would only increase as a result of these “shall issue” laws.



I'm not sure how things are in your particular area but here in Ocean City, I'd like to know why ANYONE or any business would ever advertise on such a television station. 

If you go to channel 9 right now, guess what, THERE'S NO SOUND AT ALL. This is nothing new, it happens all the time. For a while there, only their commercials were without sound. Now it's everything and those IDIOTS have no one there to even know there's something wrong.

To top it off, if you watch their evening broadcasts, like football, baseball and other sporting events you get the English language and as a BONUS you also get the Spanish language at the exact same time, so you never can hear what's going on and no, it is not my TV. 

So advertisers, dump them like there's no tomorrow because NO ONE can hear your ad/commercial and this has been going on, (especially commercials) for months.

To Understand the Kennedy Murder

Dear Readers, some of you are pushing me to continue with the Las Vegas shooting story while others are asking to know what to make of the release of files pertaining to President Kennedy’s assassination. I appreciate that you are interested and are unsatisfied with official explanations.

My answer is that we already know, thanks to exhaustively researched books such as James W. Douglass’ JFK and the Unspeakable (Simon & Schuster, 2008), far more than is in the released files.

My answer is also that it doesn’t matter what we know or what the facts are, the official story will never be changed. For example, we know as an absolute indisputable fact that Israel intentionally attacked the USS Liberty inflicting enormous casualties on US Navy personnel, and the US government continues the coverup that it was all a mistake despite unequivocal statements to the contrary by the Moorer Commission, led by Admiral Tom Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

My answer also is that time is better spent in trying to prevent conspiracies in the making, such as the endless stream of lies and accusations against Russia that are turning a friendly country into an enemy and renewing the risk of nuclear Armageddon. Indeed, the biggest conspiracy theory of the present time is the one issuing from the military/security complex, the Democratic National Committee, and the presstitute media that Russia in collusion with Donald Trump hacked the US presidential election.


President Trump Puts Up Halloween Decorations Inside The White House

Developing: The Manhattan truck attack that killed at least 8 was terrorism, the mayor said. The motorist yelled "God is great" in Arabic, officials said.

Two law enforcement officials said the driver of the truck, a 29-year-old man who came to the United States in 2010, was in grave condition. One official said he had rented the truck in New Jersey.

The motorist, driving south down the path in a Home Depot rental truck, hit numerous people as nearby Stuyvesant High School was letting out for the day, officials said. At least 15 people were injured, but officials were still working to assess the extent of the casualties.

First Weinstein Co. movie post-Harvey scandal grosses just $742

The Weinstein Company’s “Amityville: The Awakening” grossed a minuscule $742 total at 10 locations on Saturday, two weeks after the haunted-house sequel began streaming for free on Google Play.

Bella Thorne, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Jennifer Morrison and Cameron Monaghan star in “Amityville: The Awakening,” which was directed by Franck Khalfoun from his own script. It’s produced by TWC’s Dimension and Blumhouse.

The original 1979 movie “The Amityville Horror” is based on 1974 events at a rural house in Amityville, NY, which became the site of one of the deadliest hauntings and grisliest murders in American history when Ronald DeFeo Jr. shot all six members of his family. Jay Anson’s book “The Amityville Horror” detailed a family moving into the house in 1975 and leaving a week later due to paranormal activity.

The book was adapted in 1979 by American Independent Pictures and became a hit, grossing $86 million. MGM’s 2005 version earned $108 million worldwide. In “Amityville: The Awakening,” Thorne’s teenage character’s family moves into the house without knowing of its notoriety, and subsequently find themselves haunted by a demonic entity.


Kevin Spacey Flew on 'Lolita Express' With Bill Clinton

Revelation resurfaces after child molestation accusation

Records show that alleged child molester Kevin Spacey flew on the infamous ‘Lolita Express’ – the private jet owned by pedophile Jeffrey Epstein – along with former President Bill Clinton.

The revelation has resurfaced in the aftermath of claims by actor Anthony Rapp that Spacey sexually assaulted him when he was a 14-year-old boy after a party at Spacey’s apartment in 1986 when Spacey, then 24, picked up Rapp, placed him on his bed and climbed on top of him.

Spacey subsequently apologized for the incident, but deflected by making the story about how he was now living as a gay man.

The media dutifully obliged and the gravity of the sexual assault claim has been obfuscated to some extent by the press focusing on the House of Cards actor’s sexuality.

In 2008, financier Jeffrey Epstein, whose friends included some of the most powerful people on the planet, was convicted of soliciting an under-age girl for prostitution.

Spacey was on board Epstein’s private jet with Bill Clinton when it flew from JFK Airport into the Azores before the former President and the actor enjoyed a tour of Africa.


These Are The Fastest-Growing (And Declining) Jobs In The US

As the inexorable advance of automation kills jobs from retail to manufacturing to data entry while wages in the US show only marginal signs of improvement, the Labor Department's latest biennial employment projections have revealed the fastest and slowest-growing fields in the US.

…The industries that dominate the list aren't surprising. Home health aides, statisticians, solar-panel installers and software developers and other jobs that, as Bloomberg points out, reflect the needs of an aging population, a shift to clean energy and employer demand for science, technology and math talent.

Solar photovoltaic installers – America’s fastest growing field – are responsible for installing systems on roofs or other structures, and earning a median annual wage of $39,240 in 2016 - is projected to more than double from 2016 to 2026, according to data from the Labor Department’s biennial employment projections.


Developing: A pickup truck driver hit people in a Lower Manhattan bike lane

Shots may have been fired. Several deaths were reported, officials said.

A man on Tuesday afternoon drove a pickup truck down a lengthy stretch of bike path next to the Hudson River in Lower Manhattan, striking numerous people. The vehicle collided with a school bus from Stuyvesant High School.
There were some reports the man fired gunshots from the truck, but officials could not immediately confirm that. The police said a suspect had been taken into custody.
Officials said as many as six people had been killed and 11 injured.

Impeachment of Black Student Leader Raises Uncomfortable Questions at Clemson U.

Jaren Stewart, vice president of Clemson’s student government, stands with Killian McDonald (left), its president, and Hannah Ohlund, its secretary of engagement. Mr. Stewart, the university’s highest-ranking black student leader, is facing removal from office just weeks after he and other student senators sat for the Pledge of Allegiance in a protest of the racial climate on campus. His critics say Mr. Stewart’s impeachment is unrelated to his protest.
An arm of Clemson University’s student government voted on Monday to impeach the university’s most prominent black student leader — Jaren Stewart, the student-body vice president. Members of the student senate voted weeks after Mr. Stewart led other members of the body to sit during the Pledge of Allegiance in a protest of the racial climate on campus.

Armed with those details alone, the situation doesn’t look good for a university that has seen a number of controversies related to its racial climate. But students supporting the effort say it’s not about the pledge protest or race at all — but rather, several misconduct allegations against Mr. Stewart. And, while insisting that the student government acts autonomously, top administrators agreed that race was not a factor in the vote.

Mark Land, vice president for university relations, said there was no cause and effect in Mr. Stewart’s protest and his impeachment, which triggers a hearing where senators will vote on whether to remove him from office. "The issues that have been brought up related to the impeachment have nothing to do with his decision not to stand for the pledge," Mr. Land said.


Gowdy: Hillary Clinton Potentially Laundered Money Through a Law Firm to Avoid Transparency Laws

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) discussed the opposition research conducted on President Donald Trump in the so-called Russian dossier.

Gowdy said he was interested in looking into if the Hillary Clinton campaign attempted to “launder all of this through a law firm” to avoid transparency laws.

Gowdy said, “I’m not an election law expert, but the good news is you don’t have to be too understated the absurdity believing you can just launder all of your campaign money by just hiring a law firm. Imagine if you and I were running for Congress, and we just hired a law firm and said ‘Hey, you go to all the opposition, you go buy all the television, you go buy all the bumper stickers, you go higher all the experts, and we will launder all of this through a law firm. I can’t think of anything that defeats the purpose of transparency laws more than that.”

Illegal Immigrant Shocked at Deportation Arrest After Failing to Appear in Court

An illegal immigrant from Mexico appeared to be surprised that immigrants officials arrested him after he failed to appear for hearings for three years.

The Mexican man had been given a second chance by an immigration judge in 2013 who stopped a deportation order.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers arrested Luis Plaza Moreno, 44, at an immigration office in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, earlier this week. Moreno went to the office to renew a work permit, The Oklahoman reported.

Plaza illegally entered the U.S. near Nogales, Arizona in 2002, ICE officials told the local newspaper. Nine years later, he came in contact with police during a traffic stop. Despite not getting a ticket, Plaza’s attorney, Giovanni I. Perry, said immigration officers moved against him an obtained a deportation order. She successfully blocked the deportation order and the immigration judge enrolled the illegal immigrant in an Alternatives to Detention program.

Netflix Pulls Plug On "House Of Cards" Next Season After Kevin Spacey Sex Scandal

Just as Frank Underwood's Washington tenure is coming to an end, so does the career of the man who plays him, Kevin Spacey.

In the aftermath of today's allegations of unwanted sexual advances in 1986 by Kevin Spacey against a then-teenage Anthony Rapp, Netflix has decided to pull the plug on House of Cards after the upcoming sixth season next year, Deadline reported.

Citing sources, Deadline says that the decision was made today, just over 12-hours after the Rapp first made public his allegations on October 29 of what happened at a party at Spacey’s NYC apartment back in the mid-1980s, with key cast and creatives were alerted this morning. Furthermore, Netflix’s film Gore which stars Spacey about author Gore Vidal, i said to also be on the chopping block. There is no word yet if the NYPD are looking into the matter that occurred in their jurisdiction back in 1986 between then 14-year old Rapp and Spacey.

The sexual assault claims, which were implicitly validated by Spacey, came as the Emmy nominated House of Cards is currently in production in Maryland on its sixth season.


Gregg Jarrett: Still no evidence of Trump-Russia 'collusion' - but Hillary is a different matter

Over the weekend, the mainstream media was absolutely giddy with delight upon learning there would be an indictment by special counsel, Robert Mueller.

This was proof positive, they insisted, that Trump “colluded” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Their exuberance was the equivalent of a two day-long tailgate party. Too bad it was premature.

Manafort & Gates

The celebration came to a crashing end when the indictments of Paul Manafort and his business associate, Rick Gates, were unsealed Monday morning. It turns out the charges are, basically, a tax fraud case. The two men stand accused of hiding their income from their lobbying work for Ukraine in order to avoid paying taxes, then lying about it. That’s it.

The 31-page indictment makes no mention of Trump or Russia or “collusion.” The media seemed as dejected as a kid who wakes up on Christmas morning, only to find there are no presents under the tree. Gee whiz.


Americans think politics reached a dangerous low under Trump

WASHINGTON, U.S. - According to a survey conducted by The Washington Post-University of Maryland, seven in ten Americans think that political tensions have reached a dangerously low point in the U.S.

The poll, that painted a bleak picture of how Americans view the current political situation, noted that many see the situation as a "new normal" for the country rather than a fleeting trend.

According to the poll released on Saturday, a large majority of respondents – 70 percent – say that political divisions are at least as big as they were during the Vietnam War, a period remembered for its intense social and political upheaval.

It said that that number was even bigger among individuals 65 and older – people who were adults during the tumultuous years of the Vietnam War.

At the same time, Americans' views of politicians' ethics and honesty have reached at least a 30-year low.

The poll further showed that just 14 percent view politicians' ethics as excellent or good - the same number stood at 25 percent in 1997 and 39 percent in 1987.

Further, the poll, which was conducted from September 27 to October 5 and surveyed 1,663 adults, showed that pride in how the United States' democracy works is also eroding quickly.

The poll found that in the past three years, the number of Americans who are not proud of how the country's democracy is functioning has doubled from 18 percent in 2014 to 36 percent today.

New Book Reveals FBI Report on Deep State’s ‘All Out War’ to Destroy Trump

The mainstream media’s effort to cast doubt on the existence of the Deep State has been dealt a stunning body blow by an FBI report on rogue elements within the permanent federal bureaucracy.

After conducting 2,000 interviews, the FBI’s field offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York compiled a 1,400-word report on the Deep State last summer for then-Director James Comey. The field report is being published for the first time in the new book 'All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.'

“The Bureau has gotten actionable intelligence that there is, within the federal government, a growing and organized movement to block or interfere with administration policy decisions,” the report states.

“There have been regular organized meetings of large numbers of government workers at a church in the Columbia Heights area of the District [of Columbia] where plans have been discussed to actively sabotage government programs they disagree with,” the report continues. “These would include immigration enforcement, crackdowns on welfare fraud and any weakening of environmental rules. Plus, there is concern that some dissenting government workers might be dislodged from their positions by the Trump Administration.

“There is evidence that, while there is a great deal of agitation within the government, there are non-government individuals associated with unions and immigration and environmental groups who are behind these meetings.

GOP Lawmaker: Tea Party Apology Not Accepted, 'Heads Should Roll' at IRS

Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Fla., did not accept the apology from the Internal Revenue Service for targeting groups based their political leanings.

"Heads should roll and people should be held accountable for this gross abuse of power," Buchanan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Oversight subcommittee said in a press release on Monday.

Court documents filed Wednesday showed that the IRS apologized and agreed not to single out applications based on the political views of an organization. The Trump administration settled lawsuits with dozens of tea party groups over that treatment.

"An apology five years after the fact is not good enough. The American people need to know they can be critical of their government without fear of retribution," Buchanan said.

Prostitution, Free Speech, and a Veteran Memorial: 3 Interesting Court Cases

Let’s Not Pick and Choose Our Freedoms

Prostitution has been illegal in California for 145 years. But for the first time, judges appear to be considering overturning the law.

In the past, challenges to the law have been outright dismissed. But now judges have agreed to take a closer look at the California law.

“Why should it be illegal to sell something that it’s legal to give away?” A judge asked in court.

And he has a point. We shouldn’t limit other people’s freedom, no matter how distasteful it seems. It may offend you. But that is no reason to stop other people from doing what they want.

And while many would seek to equate prostitution to human trafficking, these are two separate issues. In fact, it may be easier to focus on human trafficking if prostitution were legal. Resources which currently waste time picking up the same prostitutes and cycling them through the courts could be redirected to catching actual traffickers.

And legal prostitutes in the industry could then shed light on illicit activities involving trafficking if they didn’t have to fear being prosecuted for prostitution itself.

U.S. Condemns N. Korea’s Plans To Launch Satellites In Space

North Korea is planning to launch more satellites in an effort to boost its power in space.

The rogue regime announced its five year space program Monday, saying its goal is to improve the economy and livelihood of its residents.

However, experts claim the satellites will test North Korea’s ballistic missile technology, which could lead to a possible long-range rocket launch.

WH: Mueller Indictments Not Related To Any Trump Campaign Activities

The White House pushes back on speculation surrounding the indictments of former Trump campaign Chairman Paul Manafort.

During a Monday press briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters the charges against Manafort and his partner Rick Gates are not campaign related.

She also said the indictments will not distract from the president’s legislative agenda.

When asked about the guilty plea of former campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, Sanders claimed he was a volunteer who was repeatedly pushed back on his ideas by top Trump officials.

Sanders then said the only Russian collusion during the election happened among the Democrats.

“Today’s announcement has nothing to do with the president, has nothing to do with the president’s campaign or campaign activity,” announched Huckabee. “The real collusion scandal as we’ve said several times before has everything to do with the Clinton campaign, Fusion GPS, and Russia…there’s clear evidence of the Clinton campaign colluding with Russian intelligence to spread disinformation and smear the president and influence the election.”

Manafort and Gates have pleaded not guilty to all charges.


Collusion between US Antifa groups and Al-qaida/ISIS leaders

A secret FBI investigation of the violent 'resistance' movement on college campuses against President Trump has led to an alarming discovery—the collusion between American anarchists and foreign terrorists in the Islamic State and Al-qaida, according to a confidential 'Informational Report' by FBI field offices.

'There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between U.S. radicals and the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,' stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in the new book 'All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.'

The FBI report on efforts by Islamic terrorists to recruit followers among violent U.S. groups like Antifa corroborates President Trump's controversial claim, following last summer's deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left-wing anarchist groups are just as dangerous as right-wing white supremacists.


Mueller Charges Manafort, but Not Because of Trump 'Collusion'

Rumors swirled over the weekend that special counsel Robert Mueller would charge someone in connection with his investigation into Russian election interference. News broke this morning that, not surprisingly, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort is the man charged. Manafort, along with his business partner Rick Gates, were ordered to turn themselves in to federal authorities to be indicted on 12 charges including conspiracy against the United States, failure to register as working for a foreign agent, money laundering, false and misleading statements and seven counts for failure to register foreign-held bank and financial accounts.

Leftmedia reports of course focus on the fact that Manafort was Donald Trump’s campaign manager for four months. Yet while Trump arguably showed poor judgement in hiring Manafort, he fired him after revelations surfaced of Manafort’s connections to Russian business dealings. And what’s interesting about these new charges is that they relate to Manafort’s actions well before he was connected to Trump’s campaign.

Specifically, Manafort had a long history of working for Democrat players John and Tony Podesta on Russia-related business interests..

Fitton: Obama Campaign Payments to Law Firm Raises Questions

Reports that former President Barack Obama's campaign organization, Obama for America, paid almost $1 million to a law firm paying money to Fusion GPS, the firm behind a salacious dossier about then-GOP nominee Donald Trump, raise many questions, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Monday.

"President Obama had it in for President Trump, then, at the time, the candidate," Fitton told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.

"He campaigned so close, so much for Hillary Clinton that it hadn't been done like that in 100 years. Then you had the dossier being used by the Obama FBI, the Obama Justice Department, maybe the Obama CIA to target team Trump."

According to The Federalist, quoting records filed with the Federal Election Commission, Obama for America (OFA) paid more than $972,000 to Perkins Coie, the international law firm that directed by both the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign to retain Fusion GPS in April of 2016 to research Trump.

Fitton said his watchdog group wants to know why OFA was paying Perkins Coie, and why a "$700,000 chunk went over there around the time Fusion GPS began working for Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee to find dirt on President Trump, or President-elect Trump, or candidate Trump, by traveling to Russia and colluding with the Russians."

Trump Responds to Manafort Indictment: 'This Is Years Ago'

A few hours after Paul Manafort walked into a federal court in Washington on Monday, President Trump addressed the furor surrounding his former campaign manager, who is among the first people to face criminal charges stemming from the probe conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Trump tweeted:

"Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren't Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????"

"....Also, there is NO COLLUSION!," the president tweeted moments later.

Economist: Mass Immigration to U.S. Is World’s ‘Largest Anti-Poverty Program’

Decades of mass immigration to the United States, with more than 1.5 million legal immigrants entering the country every year, is the world’s “largest anti-poverty program” at the expense of blue-collar American workers and the middle class, says a Harvard University economist.

In an interview with Talking Points Memo, economist George Borjas detailed how more than five decades of mass immigration of low-wage foreign nationals to the U.S. have negatively impacted America’s poor, working class, and middle class in the labor force.

Borjas explains:

"Since 1965, we have admitted a lot of low-skilled immigrants, and one way to view that policy is that we were running basically the largest anti-poverty program in the world. That is actually not a bad thing at all. Except someone is going to have to pay the cost for that.

"This is the question that most progressives don’t want to face up to. They really want to believe that immigrants are manna from heaven. That everybody is really better off and that everybody is happy forever after. What they refuse to confront is the reality that nothing in the world is like manna from heaven. In any policy change, some people benefit a lot and some people don’t. And this point also applies to immigration, which has created the dynamics of where we are now."

Thanks to the Clinton/DNC revelation about the 'Trump dossier,' Robert Mueller can stop investigating Trump

In a court of law when it is discovered that evidence has been contaminated or a witness is lying, that evidence is thrown out and a jury is instructed to ignore the witness testimony.

As new bombshell revelations prove the infamous “Trump dossier” was bought-and-paid-for by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee, the document that launched the Russian collusion investigation against President Trump must accordingly be thrown out.

In light of the newest charge that the DNC and the Clinton campaign may have broken a dozen federal election laws with the document, special counsel Robert Mueller has no choice but to dismiss the Trump investigation.

To fully understand how the partisan hit piece fueled Mueller's Russian investigation, one must remember how it all began..

A Viewer Writes: Salisbury Maryland Police Department Crime Stats

I have been following your reporting on crime statistics, especially as it relates to the Salisbury Police Department for some time now. I have knowledge on how this is done as I spent numerous years as a former supervisor at SPD. Let me try to explain the way reporting is done. First, when an agency states that crime is up or down they are referring to what is called Part I crimes. This consists of Murder, Rape, Robbery, Assault, Burglary, Theft and Motor Vehicle Theft. Any incident not categorized in one of these crimes will never show up in a “crime statistics” report. An example would be if a burglary investigation led to the offense classified as vandalism. A brick thrown through a window in of itself doesn’t show a motive for burglary or any attempt to burglarize a property. On the other hand, putting that incident in a category not listed above will not list the crime in their statistical report. It is that simple to lower your reported burglaries or any crime category.

I’m sure you noticed that SPD converting over to Crime Reports is not reporting most calls they respond to. This is not implying they are covering up anything and Crime Reports does present the information in a very nice graphical presentation. Complete it is not. Either they (SPD), are not aware of what is being reported to Crime Reports or they are actively preventing information from being released. How can you go from 120-200 calls for service a day to 8 incidents (I just queried Crime reports for Oct. 20, 2017). My guess is incompetence. It appears this current chief feels that this way to limit information and push the work to someone else. In today’s world how much would it take to add an interactive mapping function to their prior web site? More important than that, who is compiling these report. All agencies are required to perform background checks, training which includes security and dissemination, to all personnel that have access to this information. Under this current administration, all IT functions have been abandoned and transferred to the city IT staff. On the one hand I understand the reason ($) to do this, but do not agree as this data is very sensitive. I am sure that proper vetting has occurred.

Finally the topic, predictive policing software. I read somewhere SPD pays $50k a year for a package that according to their web site ( does not tell you who commits a crime only when and where. $50k tells you a geographic area to be where there is a high likelihood a crime will occur. Flood police in that area and I am sure crime will go down in that area, but you’re just moving it to another area. That’s called displacing crime not solving crime. But then again it’s not their money and if they displace crime to the county, well then it’s the county’s problem. How many arrests are attributed to this software package? I’ve already shown how easy it is to reduce crime, yet if you don’t arrest the individual (s), they will just go somewhere else to commit the crime.

Publishers Notes: If you ever wondered why I have gone after this Police Chief, Mayor and City Council, now you know. They, (all of them) have done everything in their power to cover up crime. It absolutely amazes me how every local media source covers up the incredible crime in Salisbury Maryland. Is this corruption? Is what they are doing even legal?

Now you have a guy named Jack Heath wanting to run for County Executive, all the while participating in covering up crime. Is it fair on the people interested in moving here and buying homes? Is it fair on parents who look into crime before they commit to sending their child to Salisbury University? Is it fair on all of the women living and visiting Salisbury when there are so many rapes? It's time for the citizens to come forward and due their civic duty and run for office. That's the only way things will ever change around here.

Baltimore Murder Crisis Continues: 2nd 'Ceasefire' Scheduled For Next Weekend

Organizers from August’s failed ceasefire movement in Baltimore City, Maryland will be conducting the second citywide ceasefire on November 03-05.

Back in August, we reported on the first ceasefire, where Baltimore “gang leaders, drug dealers and others linked to the violence” agreed not to kill anyone.

The ceasefire ended in the 42nd hour, as a young male was shot to death near Ravens stadium. At the time we wrote the article, homicides in Baltimore stood at 208. Fast Forward to the end of October and homicides now stand at 295 honing in on the record high of 344 set in 2015.
