Priebus: Former CIA Director Brennan Has a Lot to Answer for

On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” while discussing former CIA Director John Brennan criticizing President Donald Trump’s visit to the CIA yesterday, Trump administration chief of staff Reince Priebus said Brennan had “a lot of things that he should answer for in regards to these leaked documents,” referring to the unverified dossier about Trump and Russia..

A Letter To The Editor: Re. 32 Annual Birthday Celebration and Commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

At the MLK Dinner at the Wicomico County Youth and Civic Center last night, January 16, 2017, the person that did the opening prayer for the banquet started ragging on President Elect Donald Trump and made some threatening comments about him. He was also making comments daring trump to cut the budget on different welfare programs. It was ugly and uncomfortable for some people in the audience. I heard people saying they will never attend another NAACP function again, especially the MLK Banquet. 

I think the person was a so call preacher by the name of Bishop Anthony Dickerson, New Greater Mt. Olive Full Gospel Baptist Church, Cambridge Maryland. That man is a racist person and he was inciting a riot. That "prayer" was very inappropriate for a publicly funded youth and civic center.

Sheriff Mike Lewis: "Heading Into Harms Way"

OK, I've been receiving multiple messages referencing Sheriff Mike Lewis sending 25 Officers to Washington D.C. for President Trump's inauguration. Many are upset for a couple main reasons. One, who will be protecting Wicomico County and two, who is paying for this. 

Look, I have a few thoughts on this matter. One, it's not often in a Police Officers life they get a chance to participate in such a historic event. Since Jake Day and Chief Barbara Duncan claim crime is way down in Salisbury, hey, maybe these Officers aren't necessary anyway. 

Here's what does bother me though. When Sheriff Mike Lewis gets on television and puts on the Mike Lewis Show like he did yesterday. Yeah, it does make me kind of throw up in my mouth every so often. Mike said, we are definitely heading into harms way. 

REALLY MIKE, well what about those of us regular citizens who will be there. Are WE heading into harms way too? Are YOU trying to scare the public into believing YOU are heading into a WAR ZONE, or as you like to say, "GROUND ZERO". 

I just think Mike is a drama queen and loves the spotlight. Learn to be a bit more humble. Learn to keep your mouth shut. Go do what ALL of you were professionally trained/paid to do and keep our new President and his supporters safe. Knowing where Mike stands politically though, there's no better leader I'd like to see in Washington D.C. protecting citizens then Sheriff Mike Lewis. 

As for who is paying for this trip, well, if we have a bunch of bank robberies, stabbings, gun shots and drug deals, Wicomico County taxpayers will certainly pay for it. However, as a strong believer in Mayor Jake Day and Police Chief Barbara Duncan, IT'S ALL GOOD, THEY GOT THIS. (sarcasm) 

Finally, If nothing happens in D.C., it will be because Sheriff Lewis kept us safe. If something does happen, well, we'll be hearing about it for many weeks to come on WBOC and WMDT. In fact, they're probably preparing a commercial as we speak featuring Sheriff Lewis in D.C. stating WE WERE THERE, blah, blah, blah. Oh crap, did I just destroy their unpredictable and ingenious idea?

Anyhow, Sheriff Lewis, you are the man. You are the best of the best. You are our local hero. Golly Gee Willikers, I even have pictures standing next to this guy.

CAIR Urges Muslims To Join 'Pussy Power Hat' March

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is asking American Muslims to participate in the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, and to bring pre-printed signs to the demonstration.

One of the available signs advertises the Muslim civil rights organization’s support for “justice & equality for all,” according to a press release sent to The Daily Caller.

Another sign on offer from CAIR reads “Say No to a ‘Muslim Registry.”

A third pre-made CAIR sign Women’s March on Washington for the reads “Women’s Rights are Human Rights.”


Another Cover Up At ECI

Salisbury News has learned an inmate was stabbed multiple times at ECI last Wednesday, yet there's been no press release. At this point, (especially since there was no press release) was this another stabbing employees knew about in advance?

An Excellent Comment Worthy Of A Post 1-19-17

Could someone explain why Wicomico County School students were forced to watch Obama inauguration. But the County will not be allowing students to watch the Trump inauguration. I was told as a parent if I wanted my student(Bennett HS) to watch the inauguration I should keep them home. The decision was made at a district level.

JUST IN: Obama grants 330 commutations on last full day in office

President Obama on Thursday granted 330 commutations to federal prisoners, less than 24 hours before his predecessor takes the oath of office. All were serving drug sentences.

Obama has granted more commutations, 1,715, than any president in United States history. Thursday's batch of commutations is the most issued by any U.S. president in a single day.

Obama in 2014 announced his clemency initiative, which encouraged federal prisoners to petition the Justice Department to have their sentences commuted or reduced. The move was part of the president's larger push for criminal justice reform.


Rep John Lewis DIDN’T PAY TAXES On His Nearly $1 Million Fancy DC Townhouse

Trump-hating Democratic Georgia congressman John Lewis didn’t pay property taxes on his nearly $1 million fancy Washington, D.C. townhouse on Capitol Hill, despite being in Congress for decades, where the salary for a Representative starts at $174,000 per year.

Lewis was in the news recently for saying he doesn’t see President-elect Donald J. Trump as “a legitimate president” because of the #RussianHackers Democratic conspiracy theory.

Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill:


Ocean City Approves Inlet Parking Lot Changes To Address Congestion Issues; Free Roam Time Cut To 20 Minutes

OCEAN CITY — A clearly divided Mayor and Council this week approved reducing the grace period for free parking at the Inlet parking lot from the current 30 minutes to 20 minutes in the interest of reducing congestion times at the popular parking area.

During last week’s Transportation Committee meeting, officials voted to adjust the paid parking structure at the Inlet lot to 20-minute increments in an effort to reduce the need for coin change and keep the line of vehicles attempting to leave the lot at certain busy times. The intent is to adjust the fee schedule at the Inlet lot in order to make the increments come out rounded to the whole dollar, eliminating the need for coin change and thereby speeding up the transaction times.

Under the proposed adjustments, the first 20 minutes would be free, 21 minutes to 40 minutes would cost $1, 41 minutes to 60 minutes would cost $3 and each additional 20-minute period would cost another $1. The handicap fee schedule would be adjusted in kind with a 60-minute free grace period, with a $5 fee for 61 to 100 minutes and $6 for 101 to 120 minutes.


One Hour Ago In Washington, D.C. 1-19-17

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.

On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.

Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.

The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.

Check Out What Melania Is Doing To The White House- Michelle Will Be LIVID

Every FLOTUS wants to make the White House her own and Melania is planning to do just that, and this is 100% what you would expect from her.

Kinda makes me want to visit the White House, actually.

After Donald Trump secured the presidency, election designers decided to wage war Melania Trump, saying they will refuse to work with the future first lady because of her husband’s politics. Now, Melania is letting it be known that she intends to continue looking great—with our without their help.

According to reports from Melania’s makeup artist Nicole Bryl, the First Lady will introduce a ‘glam room’ to the White House.

“There will absolutely be a room designated for hair, makeup and wardrobe,” Bryl told Stylish. “Melania wants a room with the most perfect lighting scenario, which will make our jobs as a creative team that much more efficient, since great lighting can make or break any look.”


THE NERVE! Michelle Obama Responds To John Lewis SKIPPING Out On Inauguration

For those who are not familiar with who John Lewis is, here is a quick update. JOhn Lewis is a Georgia politician with a rich history in the civil rights movement. He was the youngest of the “Big Six” leaders of the movement. He helped organize the march on Washington. Personally marched and worked next to Martin Luther King Jr. and advocated the non-violent effort to end segregation and racism.

Like many Democratic leaders he is not thrilled with the upcoming inauguration of president-elect Donald Trump. He has recently been quite vocal about his unease with the upcoming presidency.

According to ABC News:

After a Friday interview in which Lewis said Trump was not the “legitimate” president because of alleged Russian interference in the election, Trump responded on Twitter Saturday, writing that Lewis “should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!”

Trump’s accusation that Rep. John Lewis is “All talk… (and) no action…” struck a chord with many. For a survivor of multiple jailings and beatings as a result of his voice in fighting for civil rights it had to be a troubling accusation.

But Michelle Obama has taken to twitter herself today and stepped into the debate.

Obama Commutes Bulk of Chelsea Manning’s Sentence

WASHINGTON — President Obama on Tuesday largely commuted the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of an enormous 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted the administration, and made WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures, famous.

The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to commit suicide last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the male military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.

Now, under the terms of Mr. Obama’s commutation announced by the White House on Tuesday, Ms. Manning is set to be freed on May 17 of this year, rather than in 2045.


Lady Liberty is African-American in new commemorative coin

Lady Liberty appears "in a new light, as an African-American woman," in a $100 gold coin unveiled Thursday, officials at the U.S. Mint have announced.

The 2017 American Liberty 225th Anniversary Gold Coin shows a woman's head in profile with a crown of stars. It features the year of the Philadelphia mint's founding, 1792, as well as 2017. The reverse side of the coin depicts an eagle in flight.

The coin is the first in a series. Future 24-karat gold coins will show Liberty in designs representing Asian-Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans, according to the mint. From the late 18th through the early 20th century, most U.S. coins featured depictions of Liberty as a woman of Europen ancestry.

"The coin demonstrates our roots in the past through such traditional elements as the inscriptions 'United States of America,' 'Liberty,' 'E Pluribus Unum' and 'In God We Trust,'" Principal Deputy Director Rhett Jeppson said.

Progressives Prepping for Anti-Trump Woman's March by Making 'Pussyhats'

Progressive knitters and crocheters around the world are busy making “Pussyhats” to be worn by participants in the media-hyped Woman’s March to take place in Washington, D.C. as part of the organized left’s response to Donald Trump’s election.

“Pussyhats” are pink, knitted, cat-ear headgear, and their manufacture and distribution are being undertaken by the Pussyhat Project, one of the “partners” listed on the website of the Woman’s March scheduled for January 21, 2017.

As the Pussyhat Project’s flier helpfully points out:

We love the clever wordplay of “pussyhat” and “pussycat,” but yes, “pussy” is also a derogatory term for female genitalia. We choose this loaded word for our project because we want to reclaim the term as a means of empowerment.

The group goes on to point out their view that identifying people with female genitalia as females is considered a form of oppression, saying that “in this day and age, if we have pussies we are assigned the gender of ‘woman.’ Women, whether transgender or cisgender, are mistreated in society.”


Martin O'Malley Compares Trump To Hitler, KKK

Former Gov. Martin O’Malley asserted President-elect Donald Trump is an evil man on par with the Nazis and the KKK on Twitter Saturday night, and said he would “fight.”

“Now is not the time for reconciliation,” the failed Democratic presidential candidate tweeted. “Dietrich Bonhoeffer didn’t reconcile with the Nazis. MLK didn’t reconcile with the KKK. Now we fight”

O’Malley’s tweet is part of what appears to be a Democrat campaign to delegitimize Trump’s win, undermine his presidency and encourage anyone who will listen not to accept the results of the election. Democrat Rep. John Lewis said he does not see Trump as a “legitimate” president Friday, because the Russians rigged the election and rendered the result unfair and undemocratic. Others tried to invalidate the electoral college vote on the grounds of Russian interference and alleged voter fraud.

The initial reaction to O’Malley’s tweet wasn’t exactly positive.


Rep. Anthony Brown To Skip Inauguration; Cites ‘Verbal Attack’ On John Lewis

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — U.S. Representative and former Lt. Governor of Maryland Anthony Brown, D-Md., said he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump because of Trump’s “verbal attack” on Rep. John Lewis.

Rep. Brown took to social media Monday afternoon to announce that he will not attend the inauguration on Friday.

He said he has “respect the office of President of the United States,” but “can’t tolerate disrespect.”

Lewis: 'Almost impossible for me' to work with Trump

Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that it would be "almost impossible" for him to work with President-elect Donald Trump after he takes office.

"It's going to be very hard and very difficult. Almost impossible for me to work with him," Lewis, a prominent civil rights leader in the 1960s, said in an interview with NBC News's Chuck Todd.

Todd questioned Lewis about a scenario where Trump called him up and asked to consider working with him.

"I would say, 'Mr. President, Mr. Trump, it's going to be hard. It's going to be tough,'" Lewis responded.

His remarks in the pre-taped interview came before Trump tweeted Saturday evening and suggested the pair work together in focusing on the nation's inner cities.

Trump has courted prominent African-Americans such as entertainer Steve Harvey, who visited Trump Tower on Friday, to focus on the issue. Trump also tapped retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get!” Trump tweeted Saturday evening.

Ringling Bros. circus plans to shut down 'Greatest Show on Earth' after 146 years

ELLENTON, Fla. – After 146 years, the curtain is coming down on "The Greatest Show on Earth." The owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus told The Associated Press that the show will close forever in May.

The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, company executives say. Declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributed to its demise.

"There isn't any one thing," said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment. "This has been a very difficult decision for me and for the entire family."

The company broke the news to circus employees Saturday night after shows in Orlando and Miami.

FBI & NYPD: Clinton Foundation Probed for Money Laundering, Financial Transactions with Islamic Terror Groups

Money launderers who bragged on a secret federal wire tap that they could employ Clinton Foundation connections to funnel and cleanse millions in illicit cash have sparked a newly-minted FBI investigation into the embattled charity run by Hillary Clinton and her family, federal law enforcement officials confirm.

The money laundering allegations being probed by the FBI have been buoyed by recent revelations and evidence discovered by the NYPD from a laptop confiscated from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s Manhattan residence. According to NYPD, several of the emails recovered on the hard drive disclosed sensitive financial details of the Clintons and their charity. That evidence is now in the hands of the FBI too, whose New York field office has opened a parallel Clinton Foundation investigation.

Federal law enforcement sources said the Los Angeles-based money launderers, who are part of a separate federal investigation, discussed previously using Clinton Foundation personnel to domesticate foreign funds that could not be legally brought into the United States through traditional bank wires and deposits.

NYPD sources said Weiner’s email treasure trove contained correspondences regarding a company linked to President Bill Clinton and at least one offshore company, a South American affiliate of the Clinton Foundation. The emails also contained offshore financial correspondences, the source said.

Federal agents said one U.S.-based company is owned by Bill Clinton and according to linked banking intelligence discovered in emails, that entity disbursed millions of dollars via wire transfers through global banks to additional accounts controlled by the Clinton family and its charity. NYPD intelligence sources versed in anti-money laundering, said the emails and other items obtained from Weiner’s laptop paint a portrait of a complex corporate umbrella strategically formulated to seemingly operate and avoid law-enforcement detection.

“There’s sophistication in how this works and distributes cash to other accounts,” a federal intelligence source said. “Do we think this involves gun-running or drug-dealing criminals? Not intentionally, but the infrastructure is set up almost identically. Proceeds and income are being hidden the same way.”

Times Be A Changin'

By Thornton Crowe

What's with all the seemingly mass hysteria surrounding Donald Trump's inauguration? Trying to remember if there was ever such dissent and discourse in our history, the only other time that comes to mind is 1969. The country was already embroiled in vehement debate because, unlike today, we were in the first widely televised war. After the initial discount, it soon became obvious that in the 60s, liberals were protesting because they didn't want to go to war while now, they're protesting because they don't want to go to work!

Trump supporters voted for a complete change in DC and the way it does business. No longer are we willing to accept the skyrocketing spending sprees, forced Obamacare and governmental meddling into our every decision. Finally, we've awoken up from our Liberal/MSM hazes and said it's not a bad thing to be American again - unlike the last thirty years where we've been scolded and bullied into shame for having pride in America.

Let's face it, we've entered the age where tangible results are king! It's not enough to just talk about issues to placate voters every two years. Results!

Yes, this was a true change election and one that will produce results as Trump will govern like a CEO instead of a political ideological hack, lacking Common Sense. He is a doer, which means now, DC is running scared. He is actually doing what he said he was going to do -- put people back to work by bringing back (and retaining) jobs to America. Scary actions produce scary times and our youngsters are about to be weened off the government plantation and actually get a job! Hence, making Trump a more legitimate president than the last four, combined. Imagine that!

In addition to the patently false dossier created by the GOPe during the primary, last week's bigger upset was when the State Department became inflamed over a request from our President Elect. The Transition Team asked all its employees to to submit job descriptions and justify what they do on a daily basis. Furthermore, in these job explanations, they had to illustrate where they've actually achieved tangible results -- code meaning: how they've earned their salaries.

Heavens to Murgatroyd... You mean, like corporations do all the time to assess efficiency? How dare Trump have the audacity to expect government to be efficient? What's up there?

All these loony liberal tantrums are merely an organized effort to shanghai Americans into buying this mythical notion that an efficiently-run government is a bad one because the DC class has lived off the biggest welfare government subsidy of them all. We've allowed them, through our own apathy, to cash in at our expense for so long that now, when they have justify their existence, they're crying victimhood!

Political loafers like Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are now required to produce results because gone are the days of empty words and platitudes being blindly accepted. Yes, indeed we've rattled some mighty cages and now, we're having to tolerate infantile tantrums. It's become pointedly obvious, the only thing bipartisan among the DC Elites is a penchant for waste, fraud, kickbacks, abuse and sloth!

We're in for the yuge changes we've voted for... momentous ones that will actually wrangle our government into working efficiently and with Common Sense while being ever-thoughtful of budgetary restraint. Simply put, our government will begin to work for us; not the other way around! Isn't it about time?

Buy your favorite whiner an alarm clock... time to go back to work!

How say you?

Trump was right about Mexican-Made GM Cars

Donald Trump doesn't like things made in Mexico.

On January 3, he slammed GM, one of America's big three automakers, for manufacturing cars in Mexico to sell across the border in the U.S. He focused his firepower on the Chevy Cruze, one of GM's signature small cars.

"General Motors is sending Mexican made model of Chevy Cruze to U.S. car dealers-tax free across border. Make in U.S.A. or pay big border tax!" Trump tweeted at the time.

A huge debate ensued: Did Trump have his facts right? GM (GM) was quick to say no. The company issued a statement claiming it makes all Cruze sedans sold in the U.S. at a big factory in Lordstown, Ohio. (Read the full statement at the end of this article).

But it turns out, what Trump tweeted was true.
