Coast Guard, partner agencies save Loggerhead Turtle off Delaware coast

PHILADELPHIA – The Coast Guard and two marine rescue organizations saved an ailing Loggerhead Turtle, approximately 3-miles east of Cape Henlopen, near Lewes, Delaware, Monday.

The crew of the 154-foot Lawrence Lawson, a fast response cutter based out of Cape May, New Jersey, spotted the approximately 252 lb Loggerhead Turtle while on a patrol off the coast of Delaware at approximately 11 a.m.

The crew monitored the turtle and noted it was covered in marine growth and showed difficulty diving underwater and needed aid.

The crew of the Lawson contacted members of the Marine Education, Research & Rehabilitation Institute (MERR) and arranged to pick them up in the Lawson’s deployable over-the-horizon small boat, while Coast Guard Station Cape May brought members of the Sea Turtle Recovery to the ship.

Robert Mueller Stocks Staff with Democrat Donors

Special counsel's team includes former Clinton Foundation lawyer, contributors to Obama, Hillary, more

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich sparked a mini-meltdown in the media Monday with a tweet challenging the fairness of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Gingrich, who also appeared on “The Laura Ingraham Show,” pointed to the early hires special counsel Robert Mueller has made.

“Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair,” he tweeted. “Look who he is hiring. Check FEC reports. Time to rethink.”

He's not wrong about the donations. Four top lawyers hired by Mueller have contributed tens of thousands of dollars over the years to the Democratic Party and Democratic candidates, including former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.

One of the hires, Jeannie Rhee, also worked as a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation and helped persuade a federal judge to block a conservative activist's attempts to force Bill and Hillary Clinton to answer questions under oath about operations of the family-run charity.


Last Day Of School!

Why The Markets Are Overdue For A Gigantic Bust

Let me begin with a caveat: confirmation bias is an ever-present risk for an analyst such as myself.

If you're not familiar with the term, 'confirmation bias' suggests that once we've invested time and emotional energy into developing a worldview, we'll then seek information to confirm that view.

After writing about the economy for so many years, I'm now so convinced that we can't print our way to prosperity that I find myself seeing signs confirming this view everywhere, every single day. So that’s the danger to be aware of when listening to me. I'm going to keep repeating this mantra and Im going to keep finding data that supports this view.

Based on lots of historical inputs, I have concluded that Printing money out of thin air can engineer lots of things, including asset price bubbles and the redistribution of wealth from the masses to the elites. But it cannot print up real prosperity.


Brooke Gabrielle Mulford Obituary

On Monday, June 12th 2017, Brooke Mulford, beloved daughter of Amy Stanton Mulford (Charles Klaus) and Robert Nelson Mulford, Jr. passed peacefully into the arms of Jesus after an 8 year battle with neuroblastoma. Although Brooke was diagnosed at the tender age of 4, her passion for life and dedication to service has impacted each community in which she lived. Brooke’s smile and love of animals, especially her dog Bailey and kitten Socks, was contagious. While Brooke could be found habitually feeding ducks, she focused her legacy on helping others. The Brooke Mulford Foundation, organized in 2009, under Brooke’s careful guidance, has helped to fund cancer research. Likewise, Brooke wanted to ensure that children suffering from cancer could have access to toys and activities. Brooke opened Brooke’s Toy Closet at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, MD.

Through her faith in Christ, Brooke has become an integral part of the K-LOVE family. Her spirit has been encapsulated in Matthew West’s song, Never Ever Give Up, which recognizes Brooke’s ability to influence and inspire others. Brooke’s faith in Jesus Christ should give us hope that we will see her again, in His arms. Brooke will remain forever in our hearts.

Brooke’s greatest attribute, her smile, could light up the room. Brooke should be remembered for her contagious smile; her openness to others made them laugh, while the joy she felt in life’s simplicity helped others to smile.

Brooke has become a mascot to many teams in the communities who have embraced her fight against cancer and who have been inspired by her altruism. Brooke will be missed by those who have provided prayer through the various social media groups created to keep Brooke’s supporters informed of her health and well-being. Brooke drew strength from so many and all cards, well-wishes, and faithful notes were cherished by Brooke.

Likewise, Salisbury Maryland, Brooke’s first home, as well as Brooke’s Southern New Jersey roots, has enabled people to know the caring and grace that Brooke shared selflessly with others. Brooke’s schoolmates and teachers at Salisbury Christian, Osage School, and Voorhees Middle School were very special to her and she will be missed dearly.

Brooke was loved and admired by many, especially her family. Brooke is survived by maternal grandparents Jean Russell (David), Greg Dunn (Millie), Barbara Armstrong and paternal grandparents Robert Mulford Sr. (MaryAnn) and Nancy Tartaglione (Vince).

Brooke is also survived by her maternal aunts and uncles, John Stanton (Johanna Marino), Alisyn Stoffel, David Russell Jr. (Brenda), Jason Dunn (Virgina), Aaron Dunn, Heather Thomas (Jacob), and James Armstrong (Misty). Brooke will be dearly missed by her paternal great-grandmother, Trula Ivans, and loving aunts and uncles Jean Burgee (George), Josh Targtaglione . Cousins, extended family, and others too numerous to mention, provided Brooke with love throughout her life.

Brooke’s family will receive friends on Friday, June 16th, 4:30-8 PM, at the Haddonfield United Methodist Church, 29 Warwick Road, Haddonfield, NJ. Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, June 17th, at 10:00 AM, at the Haddonfield United Methodist Church.

Additionally, a Celebration of Life in Brooke’s honor will be held on Friday, June 23rd, 7:00 PM, at the Bennett High School Stadium, 300 E College Ave, Salisbury, MD 21804.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Brooke Mulford Foundation, PO Box 545 Salisbury, MD 21803.
NEW YORK – U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) New York, along with ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), announced their recent launch of Operation Matador and the DHS Transnational Organized Crime Initiative (DHS TOCI), which represents a unified effort dedicated to combat the proliferation of MS-13 and other transnational criminal gang activity in the New York City metropolitan area, including Long Island.
This joint initiative is comprised of: HSI special agents, ERO deportation officers, the ICE Office of the Principal Legal Advisor (OPLA), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and state and local law enforcement partners to include Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD), Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD). The DHS TOCI is responsible for identifying, interdicting and investigating a wide variety of transnational border crime with a concentration on MS-13 gang activity.
“Transnational gangs like MS-13 bring nothing but violence and conflict to our communities and their presence will not be tolerated. Their vicious criminal activities present an ongoing challenge for law enforcement everywhere,” said Angel M. Melendez, special agent in charge of HSI New York. “It is with the efforts of our federal partners under DHS and the incredible assistance provided by our local law enforcement partnerships with Suffolk County and Nassau County Police Departments that we will continue to dismantle these gangs piece by piece to enhance the safety and security of our communities.”

The American Architects Of The South-African Catastrophe

Yes, it has happened. A mere 23 years after the 1994 transition, in South Africa, to raw ripe democracy, six years following the publication of a wide-ranging analysis of that catastrophe, Into the Cannibal's Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa,a Beltway libertarian think tank has convened to address the problem that is South Africa.

The reference is to an upcoming CATO “Policy Forum,” euphemized as “South Africa at a Crossroad.” One of the individuals to headline the “Forum” is Princeton Lyman, described in a CATO email tease as having “served as the U.S. Ambassador to South Africa at the time of the transfer of power from white minority to black majority.” At the “Forum,” former ambassador Lyman will be discussing “America’s original hopes for a new South Africa and the extent to which America’s expectations have been left unfulfilled.” (Italics added.)

The chutzpah!

The CATO Institute’s disappointment in the South Africa the United States helped bring about is nothing compared to the depredations suffered by South Africans, due to America’s insistence that their country pass into the hands of a voracious majority. Unwise South African leaders acquiesced. Federalism was discounted. Minority rights for the Afrikaner, Anglo and Zulu were dismissed.
Aborted Attempts at South African Decentralization

This audacity of empire is covered in a self-explanatory chapter of Into the Cannibal’s Pot, titled “The Anglo-American Axis of Evil,” in which Lyman makes a cameo. (It’s not flattering.) From the comfort of the CATO headquarters, in 2017, the former ambassador will also be pondering whether “growing opposition will remove the African National Congress [ANC] from power.” The mindset of the DC establishment, CATO libertarians included, has it that changing the guard —replacing one strongman with another — will fix South Africa, or any other of the sites of American foreign-policy interventions.

So, what exactly did Princeton Nathan Lyman do on behalf of America in South Africa? Or, more precisely, who did he sideline?


Vehicle Fire Sends Woman to Hospital

Law Enforcement Should Not Be Able to Bypass the Fourth Amendment to Search Your Devices

Sending your computer to Best Buy for repairs shouldn’t require you to surrender your Fourth Amendment rights. But that’s apparently what’s been happening when customers send their computers to a Geek Squad repair facility in Kentucky.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights. That’s why we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit today against the FBI seeking records about the extent to which it directs and trains Best Buy employees to conduct warrantless searches of people’s devices. Read our complaint here [PDF].

EFF has long been concerned about law enforcement using private actors, such as Best Buy employees, to conduct warrantless searches that the Fourth Amendment plainly bars police from doing themselves. The key question is at what point does a private person’s search turn into a government search that implicates the Fourth Amendment. As described below, the law on the question is far from clear and needs to catch up with our digital world.


SBYNews EXCLUSIVE: The Investigative Results Are In On The Sexual Assault On Hartley Hall

I want to thank Senator Jim Mathias for immediately getting involved in bringing in investigators from the State. We can only hope this investigation will help each and every employee working there to know their voices can be heard. Fortunately they came to Salisbury News as NONE of the rest of the media ever mentioned any of this happening.

Md. makes overdose drug available without a prescription

WASHINGTON — A prescription drug that can reverse an opioid overdose now is being made available to Marylanders without a prescription under a standing order by Maryland’s deputy secretary for public health services.

Previously, naloxone, which is sometimes referred to by the brand name Narcan, was only made available to people trained in opioid overdose response or certified under the Maryland Overdose Response Program.

“By allowing even more people access to naloxone, we’re helping to save lives,” said Clay Stamp, executive director of the Opioid Operational Command Center, in a news release.

“We must remember though, that ultimately, those suffering from the disease of addiction or substance use disorder must be linked to additional treatment to aid in their recovery,” Stamp said.


The Blue Angels have arrived at Wallops!

After His Testimony, It’s Clear Comey Deserved To Be Fired

One thing is certain from watching former FBI director James Comey’s testimony Thursday: He really, really likes himself.

Billed by some on the left as “the last honest man in Washington,” which is funny because last year they were calling for his head, Comey did all he could to portray himself as the hero of his own story.

That’s not uncommon in Washington. Actually it’s the norm, but rarely is it so blatant. Comey knows how to play the DC “CYA” game like a pro, but he was lucky he was being questioned by politicians and not people with the ability to think on their feet or time to ask follow-up questions.

There are few things as useless as a public hearing in Congress. Maybe a Pet Rock, but just barely. With each member of the committee limited to only a few minutes, most stuck to their scripts, no matter what Comey said.

It was a rare hearing in that all members stayed the whole time. Not because they care, but because they knew it was live on every network.

Most committee hearings are ghost towns, with members drifting in only when it’s their time to speak. Put a live feed on CSPAN and they’re out of there, but put it on cable news and suddenly senators stay. This was on all the broadcast channels, so nothing short of a nuclear bomb was going to pry those pampered behinds from those seats.

Most were there the whole time, but few were actually interested. They had their scripts and stuck to them.


10th Annual OC Air Show On Tap This Weekend

OCEAN CITY – Military demonstrations, air-sea races and a variety of aerial displays will highlight this year’s 10th Annual OC Air Show.

Returning to this year’s air show are the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, who will headline this year’s event following several demonstrations, races and flyovers from both military and private performers.

Chris Dirato, director of public relations for the OC Air Show, said this year’s lineup will celebrate the military’s rich history and the show’s ongoing success.

“It’s the 10th anniversary, so it’s a milestone of sorts for the show,” he said. “We feel it’s important to put forth a quality list of performers. All of those elements come together and make it a special, special weekend.”


WATCH NEW FOOTAGE Of CNN STAGING Pro-Muslim Protest – WORSE Than We Thought

More damning video showing CNN staging pro-Muslim protests has surfaced on top of last week’s footage. The whole propaganda effort was meant to show how the majority of Muslims don’t support ISIS or terror. The problem is that none of the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims showed up in outrage. These were plants and were probably paid to pose for the cameras. It’s just shameful fake news.

This happened soon after three ISIS Jihadists plowed a van into a bunch of people on London Bridge and then went on a stabbing spree, killing eight and wounding more than 50. They set up the shoot just outside the crime scene tape. That’s disgusting. Then CNN denied it was staged. The problem is that multiple people got it on video, including this latest recording and it shows they did indeed stage the whole set-up. Talk about orchestrated bias.


Sanders to faithful: Take down Trump, take over Democratic Party

Published June 11, 2017

Chicago (CNN) - Bernie Sanders' permanent "political revolution" rolled into Chicago on Saturday night as the Vermont senator called on progressive activists gathered here to beat back President Donald Trump's agenda while remaking the Democratic Party.

Speaking to a crowd of buzzing supporters in former President Barack Obama's adopted hometown, Sanders ripped Trump's "incredible hypocrisy" and called the President a demagogue who makes "even a very conservative president like George W. Bush" appealing in comparison.

But it was his unsparing assessment of the party whose nomination he sought in 2016 that set off an audience nearly 4,00 mostly dedicated "Berniecrats."

"I am often asked by the media and others, "How did it come about that Donald Trump, the most unpopular presidential candidate in the modern history of our country, won the election?" he offered teasingly as chants of "Bernie would have won" filled the hall.


Editorial Note: In light of this morning's incidents and the fact the shooter was a Bernie fan, did Sanders incite this violent episode against Republicans? You be the judge.

Mother assaulted by group of teen girls after dropping off kids at daycare in Takoma Park

TAKOMA PARK, Md. (ABC7) — In recent weeks, Terry Delasanta has been most worried about a series of smash-and-grab robberies from cars parked outside her Takoma Park child care center.

Then, out of nowhere, came the violent attack Monday morning, against a woman parked at Tulip and Willow Avenues, less than a half-block away.

“It was actually one of the parents in our program that was assaulted,” she recalls. “We’re continuing to be very concerned about our safety.”

The victim, a petite mother in her 30s, had just dropped her children off at Takoma Park Childhood Development Center, where Delasanta is the director.

Police say just before eight o’clock, in the midst of commuter hour, a group of six to seven teen girls, approached the woman’s car; then seconds later, one of them assaulted her, then shocked her with a stun gun.


D.C. to Cover Storm Drains in Propaganda Promoting Sexual Depravity

In the USSR, you used to see big red and white billboards all over the place with slogans extolling socialism, the Russian Revolution, etc. Things are different in the USSA. The propaganda is more colorful:

The District of Columbia is spending $20,000 to pay artists to paint environmentally friendly, pro-LGBTQ murals on storm drains.

Mayor Muriel Bowser unveiled a “rainbow-colored crosswalk” on Friday to promote gay pride parades that are taking place in the city this weekend. Bowser announced storm drains would also be painted by local artists to “celebrate the LGBTQ identity” and the environment. …

The project is a joint effort by the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs, the Anacostia Watershed Society, and several D.C. city departments, including transportation, energy, and the Office of Planning.


First-Degree Assault Arrest After Store Stabbing

OCEAN CITY — A Columbia, Md. man was charged with first-degree assault last week for his role in an attack, including a stabbing, of another man in a downtown convenience store early last Friday morning.

Just after midnight last Friday, Ocean City Police Department (OCPD) officers responded to the 9th Street Beer and Wine store in reference to a report of several individuals who were fighting inside the store, but prior to the officers’ arrival, it was learned the combatants had already fled the area on foot. However, around the same time the officers’ received a call from the staff of a nearby Boardwalk hotel that there were three African-American males in the lobby, one of which was bleeding from his face and legs.

OCPD officers responded to the hotel lobby and found the three males, one of whom was lying on a couch and bleeding from his legs and chin. The officers called for EMTs and began interviewing the victim, who told police he had been jumped by three men inside the beer and wine market on 9th Street. The victim said during the fight he had sustained the wounds to his legs, which were bleeding profusely, and that he believed he had been stabbed multiple times.


The Truth For Young Americans: You Are Not A Victim

What follows is a chapter from my brand new book, 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know. Enjoy!

Oh no, someone called you a name! You think you’re disadvantaged because of an “ism.” It’s not fair that you got into a nasty conflict with someone else and came out on the short end of the stick. You’re a victim! You need someone to pity you so people will show up and fix your problems! This is going to be hard for some of you to hear, but that’s loser talk. If you live in America at the time this book is written, not only are you better off than the vast majority of people living today, you’re doing better than 99.9 percent of the human beings who ever lived. Throughout most of human history, the wretched masses barely made enough to live, had little freedom, and found life to be, in the immortal words of Thomas Hobbes, “Nasty, brutish and short.” Right now, half the people reading this book learned about it on the Internet, then had it shipped to their house where they sit on a plush bed in an air-conditioned room, snacking on the cheap, delicious snacks they received from a nearby supermarket while they drink a cool, refreshing beverage they grabbed out of their refrigerator while they enjoy the book. Many of the advances that have revolutionized human existence only became widely available in the last hundred years, and you have access to them while the richest, most privileged people on earth a hundred years ago had nothing that could compare.

You think you have it hard? Compared to whom? Some poor schmo in a totalitarian country who barely has enough to eat and can be imprisoned or shot if he offends the wrong government official or can’t manage to save up enough for a bribe on the dollar per day that he makes? Don’t ever feel sorry for yourself. Don’t ever seek pity from other people. Don’t ever play the victim, even if you are one.

Barron Trump Is Called a ‘Special Needs Kid’ for Playing With Most Popular Toy In America

Everyone and their child has a fidget spinner. We don’t really know what they are or why kids like them (I’m a millennial and can’t for the life of me figure it out) but they have been absolutely blowing up. Even the President’s son has one!

That being said, apparently it’s different when you don’t like the parent of a child with the fidget spinner. In that case, it’s perfectly acceptable to mock them and question whether they have “special needs.”

Can we go back to the days of common decency, when children were off limits? That would be wonderful.


Sessions erupts over Dem Sen ‘secret innuendo’: ‘I don’t appreciate it!’

A normally docile, folksy Jeff Sessions erupted on Tuesday after a senator asked him about James Comey’s view of Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation.

“Mr. Comey said that there were matters with respect to the recusal that were problematic and he couldn’t talk about them,” Sen. Ron Wyden told the Attorney General, who was smiling slightly.

“That— I,” Sessions said, his smile quickly disappearing, before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Why don’t you tell me!

“There are none, Sen. Wyden,” he continued, flashing rare public anger. “There are none! I can tell you that for absolute certainty.”

He added, “This is a secret innuendo being leaked out there about me and I don’t appreciate it! And I’ve tried my best to give my truthful answers to any committee I’ve appeared before. People are suggesting through innuendo that I have not been honest about matters and I’ve tried to be honest,” Sessions said.


President Trump Just Met With His Cabinet- ‘We’re Going to Make the American Dream Come True’

Trump has accomplished a lot without much help from Congress – the dismantling of the regulatory state, getting rid of criminal aliens, war against ISIS, etc. However, we still have a long way to go.

Yes, he has modified some of his positions, but all in all, he has pursued more conservative policies than any president since Reagan and this administration is not even six months old. Anyone who says otherwise is not taking the time to see the whole picture, living under a rock, or a libturd.

Think about what he could do if the Republicans could get their act together and work together on moving forward and getting things done!

Think what he could do if he would go on the ATTACK and put this Trump-Russian Nothing-burger to bed. Going on the ATTACK by getting a special counsel to pursue investigations into Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS Targeting Scandal, the Clinton E-Mails Scandal, the Clinton Pay for Play Foundation, particularly the Uranium Deal, the Obama Surveillance of the Trump Campaign, and the Obama Inspired Leaking and Unmasking of Trump Officials to discredit this administration. There are just so man things that could be cleared up, and put to rest if the republican party could get their freaking act together and stop being such cowards.


29 Rapes In Salisbury Maryland, Rated 2, (100 safest) What Say You Now Boy Mayor

President Donald Trump calls mayor of Tangier Island

TANGIER ISLAND, Va. (WAVY) — James “Ooker” Eskridge had just finished crabbing Monday afternoon when he got a call from a woman who said she was from the president’s office. Moments later, President Donald Trump introduced himself to Eskridge saying, “You got one heck of an island there.”

Trump had just watched a CNN report on the island last week. Eskridge told CNN he loved Trump as much as a family member, and that led Trump to call Eskridge. So what did both men discuss?

“Just common sense stuff.”

Tangier is sinking from erosion and sea level rise. Scientists predict it may have to be abandoned in 25 years. WAVY’s Tom Schaad met with Mayor Eskridge and residents of Tangier Island last year, and they’re hoping to save a vanishing piece of American culture with a unique dialect that many believe goes back to 17th century England.


Latest look into Hillary Clinton’s life shows she still doesn’t get it

In a recent piece for The Hollywood Reporter, “Veep” showrunner David Mandel compared Selina Meyer — the callow, vainglorious, incompetent former president of the United States played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus — to Donald Trump.

“Trump, in a weird way, is sort of doing us,” Mandel said. “We’re not doing him.”

In fact, they’re doing Hillary Clinton.

This week, New York magazine features a lengthy profile of Clinton online, and while meant to be a hagiography, it actually reveals Clinton in a sad, somewhat delusional light — the Norma Desmond of American politics, still waiting for her close-up.

Here she is on May 10, working away (at what is unclear) from her dining room table in Chappaqua. “Clinton checks with her communications director, Nick Merrill, about what’s happened in the past hour — she’s been exercising — and listens to the barrage of updates, nodding like a person whose job requires her to be up-to-date on what’s happening, even though it does not.”

New scan helps men avoid risky and painful prostate biopsy

Men with suspected prostate cancer could be spared painful and risky needle biopsy tests thanks to a new scanning technique that can detect tumours just as accurately, a new study has found.

Currently, if doctors believe a man is suffering symptoms that indicate the disease, he will first be offered a blood test that looks for raised levels of prostate specific antigen (PSA), a protein produced by the prostate gland.

Although a higher-than-normal PSA level may be caused by cancer, it can also be the result of other benign conditions.

Gingrich: America is on a knife's edge. Will Republicans have the guts to stand with Trump?

The most startling revelation from fired FBI Director James Comey’s testimony this week was his barefaced admission that he intentionally leaked details of his private conversations with the president to the press in an effort to prompt the appointment a special counsel.

When asked Thursday by Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine whether he shared the memos he wrote about his conversations with President Trump with anyone outside the Department of Justice, Comey answered:

“I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter – didn’t do it myself for a variety of reasons – but I asked him to, because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel.”

This statement is tremendously important because it completely delegitimizes Robert Mueller’s so-called independent investigation and reveals it as poisoned fruit.


Town Officials Question Berlin Fire Company’s New Station Plans

BERLIN – Town officials questioned the Berlin Fire Company’s plans to build a new station as funding needs at its primary location grow.

Following a budget presentation by David Fitzgerald, president of the Berlin Fire Company (BFC), town leaders said funding would be put to better use at the organization’s Main Street headquarters than on a new station outside town limits.

“I don’t understand why you want to build something two miles down the road and not take care of what you have,” Councilman Thom Gulyas said. “It just doesn’t make fiscal sense.”

Fitzgerald, joined by Fire Chief Jim Corron and EMS Chief Duane Phillips, outlined the fire company’s annual funding needs for town officials during Monday’s council meeting. Their presentation came after PKS & Company told the council the fire company had total net assets of $5.6 million and was a in a “very healthy” financial position.


Left-Wing Twitter Celebrates Shooting of Rep. Scalise

No sooner did news break that a gunman shot Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) were left-wing Twitter users celebrating the attack — in which two Capitol Police were also shot, as well as a congressional staffer, and possibly more.

Activist and media personality, Tariq Nasheed, appeared to indicate support for the shooting on Twitter..

Author Malcom Harris, "joked"(?) that the shooter may have simply been acting in self-defense..

Twitter user "Leon Trotsky" wrote that Scalise's shooting was "karma" for his "tea bag" beliefs..

Technology writer WaltIsFrozen said the attack will have a "silver lining" if the shooter was indeed targeting Republicans specifically..
