One dose of Trodusquemine can reverse heart disease signs

A new drug that 'melts away' the fat that builds up inside arteries has been hailed as a 'big breakthrough' in the fight against heart disease.

The medication has already been successful in trials for the treatment of breast cancer and diabetes and now scientists at Aberdeen University have discovered it could also boost cardiovascular health.

Just a single dose of trodusquemine tested on mice 'completely reversed' atherosclerosis, a disease that causes most heart attacks and strokes.

The disease causes arteries to become clogged with fatty substances called plaques, which over time, narrows your arteries.

Researchers believe the drug 'mimics' the effects of exercise and activates a protective enzyme. It also inhibits another enzyme that causes prolonged inflammation and hardens arteries.

Experts said their findings have the potential to ‘significantly reduce deaths’, given that heart disease is the number one cause of death globally, killing 17.7 million people a year.


Paul Singer and George Soros: Billionaire Bookends of Globalist Opposition to Trump Agenda

Billionaire hedge fund managers Paul Singer and George Soros define the ideological boundaries of the globalist opposition to the Trump agenda. Neither hesitates to use his substantial financial resources to stymie the populist conservative economic nationalist policies of the “Make America Great Again” coalition.

The payments by Singer-owned Washington Free Beacon to GPS Fusion for “opposition research” on candidate Donald Trump in early 2016 and the recent announcement by Soros that he was transferring billions of dollars in his own personal wealth to his Open Society Foundations are cases in point.

“The Washington Free Beacon on Friday confirmed it had originally funded research compiled by the firm Fusion GPS. But leaders from the Free Beacon, which is funded in large part by the Republican donor Paul Singer, insisted that none of the early research it received appears in the dossier released later in the year detailing explosive allegations, many uncorroborated, about Trump compiled by a former British spy,” the Associated Press reported on Friday.


Trump Privately Blames Jared Kushner for Mueller's Indictments

Donald Trump reportedly blames his son-in-law, White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner, for his role in the decision to appoint special counsel Robert Mueller, according to Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman.

On a phone call Tuesday with Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, “Trump blamed Jared Kushner for his role in decisions, specifically the firings of [former National Security Adviser] Mike Flynn and [former FBI Director] James Comey, that led to Mueller’s appointment,” according to a source who was briefed on the call.

On Monday, Mueller indicted Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort on 12 counts — ranging from making false statements to “conspiracy against the United States” — as part of the ongoing, so-called “Russia Investigation.” Richard Gates, Manafort’s deputy, was also charged.


Women's Listening Tour Report

Voices of Maryland Women Listening Tour Report

The Voices of Maryland Women Listening Tour traveled to Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, the heart of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. There, thirty-four individuals gathered to discuss the concerns of women in this region. The public forum was organized as a partnership between the State Senator Addie Eckardt and the Maryland Commission for Women.

The attendees at the forum included individuals, representatives of women’s and community organizations, service providers and public officials including the Mayor of Cambridge Victoria Jackson-Stanley and State’s Attorney for Talbot County, Mr. Scott G. Patterson. Representatives of both U.S. Senator Cardin and Van Hollen were also in attendance.The participants articulately identified a wide range of issues and challenges for the women of this region which includes Kent, Caroline, Queen Anne’s, Talbot and Dorchester Counties that encompasses small, historic cities and towns, popular resort and tourist attractions, along with large agricultural and seafood industry areas.

The evening began with welcoming remarks by Senator Eckardt who noted that currently there are no active county Commissions for Women in the Upper or Mid-Shore area, unlike other counties on the western side of the bay. She and the participants agreed that one outcome of this program might be to consider how Commissions for Women could be established in this region to focus on the issues addressed at the forum. The event then opened into a discussion of the challenges facing women on the Eastern Shore. The participants listed a total of 35 challenges and each participant was given five “votes” to place beside the issues she or he considered most important. From that process, five were selected as the top priorities. The group identified actions that could be taken to address each of the “top five” issues:
  1. Lack of Public Transportation
    1. Reevaluate transportation funding
    2. Build more flexibility into the system; take advantage of technology to create an effiecient on-demand public transportation
    3. Develop new models of public transportation that work in rural areas rather than employing models based on urban needs
  2. Threats to Affordable Health Care
    1. Maintain affordable health care for Marylanders
    2. Develop incentives for provider trainng to increase the number of health care professionals in the region
    3. Develop career ladders within the health care professions so that employees can advance from entry level to higher positions through experience and training
  3. Mental Health/Addictions: Drugs, Alcohol, and Gambling
    1. Establish prevention programs through education
    2. Reevaluate sentencing guidelines for offenders
    3. Provide more and better mental health care services
    4. Expand rehab services for pregnant women and affencted newborns and for women with children
    5. Establish recovery centers using the Oxford House model of self-run, self-supported recovery houses
  4. Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, and Sexual Harassment
    1. Offer programs that teach healthy and safe relationships, starting in elementary school
    2. Establish more shelters and transitional housing for victims
    3. Provide peer-support gprograms for victims in the court system
    4. Redefine domestic violence, sexual assault, and harassment as a men's issue and not just a women's issue: discuss the number of perpetrators, not just the number of victims
  5. Special Challenges for Immigrant Women
    1. Provide access to qualified, legitimate legal services, targeted "pop-up" legal clincs in the community
    2. Encourage the community to embrace its diversity and provide peer-support, family-to-family
    3. Provide cultural sensitivity and responsiveness training to service providers and law enforcement

Governor Larry Hogan Announces Comprehensive Initiative to Boost Computer Science Workforce Development Statewide

Executive Order, Proposed Legislation, and $5 Million Added Funding Aim to Increase Job Readiness, Diversity in Computer Science Industries

Governor Larry Hogan today announced a comprehensive computer science education and workforce development plan, including a new executive order, proposed legislation, and $5 million in new education funding.

The governor’s plan, known as the ACCESS Initiative (Achieving Computer Science Collaborations for Employing Students Statewide), fulfills the commitment he made in joining the National Governors Association’s Governors Partnership for K-12 Computer Science in July. In joining the Partnership, the governor committed to strengthening computer science education across states for all students in order to meet the demands of a 21st century workforce and prepare students for the jobs of the future. Current estimates indicate that there are more than 500,000 open computing jobs across the country and over 115,000 total computer science-related jobs in Maryland.

“For nearly three years, our administration has worked tirelessly to build an unrivaled ecosystem of innovation and economic growth in Maryland,” said Governor Hogan. “We want to make sure that Marylanders have the tools and the skills they need to compete for 21st century jobs.

“In this rapidly-evolving job landscape, states that have access to a highly trained workforce will have a major advantage. Maryland simply must continue to lead the way, and closing this skills gap begins with a focus on education. We must spark the interest of students - particularly girls - beginning at an even younger age, and we must inspire high school and college students to pursue careers in computer science,” the governor continued.

While Maryland has a highly educated workforce and computer science-related industries are growing in the state, the demand is increasing at an even faster rate, and companies often experience difficulty in finding workers with the necessary training and skills. There are currently nearly 20,000 openings for high-paying computing-related jobs in Maryland – four times the national average – and while computing-related jobs in the state are projected to grow by another 12 percent over the next decade, in 2015, Maryland produced fewer than 3,000 computer science graduates.

The devastating personal toll of West Virginia’s opioid crisis

PETERSBURG, W.Va. — I haven’t come to talk about the opioid crisis. But our conversation, as with most of my conversations here, eventually turns to drugs, and the devastating toll they’ve taken on this community.

I’m sitting on the couch in Charlie Combs’ living room in Cabins, just outside Petersburg, West Virginia. On the table beside me is a Bible, and on the wall in front of me are pictures of Combs’ family, including his two sons, Brent and Ryan.

An artist’s rendering of Brent, looking stolid in a cowboy hat, strikes me as very well done. “Yeah,” says his father, a retired forest ranger and water resource inspector, “but they didn’t get the eyes quite right.”

I’ve come primarily to talk about President Trump, who in the 2016 election won the votes of 88 percent of Grant County voters, a higher share than in any of West Virginia’s other 54 counties.


U.S. House of Representatives Unveils Pro-Growth Tax Reform Plan

WASHINGTON, DC: On November 2, the U.S. House of Representatives unveiled its tax reform plan, entitled the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01) issued the following statement in support of the legislation:

“The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is a win for middle class families and businesses that create American jobs in a global marketplace. Under this bill, a typical middle-income family of four earning $59,000 annually will receive a $1,182 tax cut. This legislation doubles the standard deduction, expands the Child Tax Credit, and maintains 401(k) and IRA retirement plans.

America’s small family owned businesses and larger employers will receive tax cuts as well – allowing businesses to invest and grow, and encouraging them to return outsourced jobs to the United States. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will stimulate economic growth and increase America’s competitiveness in the global economy.”

Trump Departs For Longest Asian Tour Since Bush Vomited On Japan's PM

President Donald Trump is leaving his administration’s push to pass comprehensive tax reform before year’s end in the hands of his trusted deputies while he embarks this morning on a 10-day tour to Asia, where he’s expected to discuss, among other topics, the security threat that North Korea poses to both the region and to the world more broadly.

As Reuters points out, it will be the longest Asia tour by a US president since George H.W. Bush vomited on Japan’s then-prime minister, Kiichi Miyazawa, during a trip to Asia in 1992 just weeks before the New Hampshire primary. While Trump, whoso gastro digestive system is in far better shape, will likely not suffer the same embarrassment, the possibility of a diplomatic fiasco is high for obvious reasons. Meanwhile, tensions run high: to underscore the seriousness of the biggest problem at hand, two US strategic bombers carried out military drills over South Korea Thursday, the U.S. Air Force said, raising tensions with North Korea, which accused the US of carrying out simulated bombing drills near its territory. In a move that is sure to further trigger the Kim regime just as Trump touches down in the region, the US has sent three aircraft carriers to participate in unprecedented 3-way drills off the Korean penninsula. Thursday’s drills were first reported by North Korean state news agency KCNA on Friday, which described the exercises involving South Korean and Japanese fighter jets were a “surprise nuclear strike drill," Reuters reported.



PIKESVILLE, MD – The State Fire Marshal would like to remind Maryland residents and visitors that using aerial luminaries, commonly referred to as “Sky Lanterns”, is prohibited throughout the State.

The Office of the State Fire Marshal regularly receives requests from the public concerning these devices, typically constructed with oiled rice paper on a bamboo frame, which are released into the atmosphere. A candle or fuel cell is ignited within the device causing the trapped air inside to become heated. The hot air allows the lantern to rise and float away with the upper air currents. Once airborne, they may travel significant distances away from the release site and return to earth, often before the flame is fully extinguished. This action can result in combustibles at the landing site to become engulfed in flames, potentially creating an uncontrolled fire involving a structure or vegetation.

The fire risk associated with these devices encourages fire safety officials to restrict their use in the best interest of public safety.

The Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) Code specifically addresses “Sky Lanterns”, prohibiting the use of the devices throughout the State of Maryland; where their use becomes a hazard.

Attached is a video received from a concerned citizen from Essex, Baltimore County, Maryland. The surveillance video captures a sky lantern floating into the yard, landing in the grass, and continuing to burn for approximately one and a half minutes. Luckily, the device did not land on the pool cover or any of the structures on the property. The citizens became aware of the event after waking the next morning and finding the burnt remnants, see photos attached. The video can be found at the link:

The Maryland State Fire Prevention Commission updated the State of Maryland Fire Prevention Code on January 1, 2013. The updated State Fire Prevention Code is available for download at the OSFM website: Access the document through the “Document Downloads‟ tab on the left side of the page.

Delaware Branding Company Presents Sponsored Artist

International tattoo manufacturer, Dragon Hawk Tattoo Supply, has teamed with Delaware Branding Company’s Lucas “the Kid” for a sponsorship while expanding it’s global exposure. Dragon Hawk, a company based in China, has added production and warehouse facilities to the US and secured sponsored artists to field test products and help spread the word.

Dragon Hawk Tattoo Supply was founded in China over 15 years ago, with the mission of supplying inexpensive machines and supplies to tattoo artists world wide. Currently, their Compass machines rival tattoo machines costing considerably more, providing artists more affordable alternatives. With the many artists switching to rotary machines, machines without coils operating on direct to motor current, Dragon Hawk is seeking to provide the most durable machines with less of a price tag. Lucas “the Kid” made the switch to rotary machines six months ago. That’s where the two crossed paths.

“I ordered some needles for the new rotary machine I purchased from a rival company and they totally botched the order,” Lucas says, “so when I contacted Dragon Hawk they were more than eager to make sure everything went smoothly.” He added “the correspondence continued for a week or so, with them checking out my work and offering to send me some machines to try out and give them feedback.” The correspondence and feedback has gone so well that Dragon Hawk is currently producing a signature, rotary machine for “the Kid”. 

“If you would of told me way back when I first started that a company would be making a tattoo machine with my name on it, I would of said “uh uh, no way, you’re crazy”, but it’s happening.”
The new Lucas “the Kid” rotary machine from Dragon Hawk, will be available late November and feature all the best parts, manufacturing and production available in both China and the US.
“I’m happy for him,” says Delaware Branding Company’s owner and fellow tattoo artist Mike P. “Lucas has been here almost from day one. He came in, paid his dues, and learned everything I could possibly show him,” Mike P goes on “I’m not easy to work with. I’m glad he stuck it out. It’s definitely a fitting reward for anyone who can endure being tormented by me for three years!”

Lucas “the Kid” is available for appointments at Delaware Branding Company in Downtown Milford, DE at 302-422-4538 or on facebook at DelawareBrandingCo. Look for his signature machine to be released on

Hooked on Fishing: Fall 2017

Four-year-old Eithan Aghion catches his very first fish!

Fall is for Fishing

It’s that time of year when our youth fishing rodeos have all wound down and school is already well into the academic year, but that doesn’t mean the fish are back to school too! In fact, the fall and even winter months are some of the best times of the year to grab your fishing rod.

In October, thousands of brown, golden and rainbow trout were released in select lakes, ponds, rivers and streams as part of Maryland’s Trout Stamp program. That means kids younger than 16 can hit stocked areas any time!

Creature Feature
Cooler water temperatures stir various types of catfish to think about eating even more than they do during the warmer summer months. 
Catfish can be found in all of the tidal creeks and rivers flowing into the Chesapeake Bay, and many lakes throughout Maryland. Catching them is simple and provides some fun fishing from lake and river banks.

Fisheries Staff Schools Kids
Earlier this fall, Recreational Outreach Coordinator Erik Zlokovitz and his son Ethan participated at this year’s STEM for Scouting event at Aberdeen Proving Ground.
These lucky children learned the basics from how to bait to how to cast. They even had the chance to throw one of our large nets into the water to see what they could catch! This event drew nearly 500 boys and girls from across eastern Maryland. 
Youth Angler's Log
That’s a great catch! Did you take a picture? Share it with friends? Well, if you did and really want to show it off, why not submit it to the Youth Angler's Log? Here you’ll find lots of tales from kids and teens across the state who are proud of their catches. It's simple to do, and for an added bonus, every few months we randomly select a name for a cool prize. Who knows? You may be next! 
We spent the summer with AquaKids! Check out all the cool stuff we did, including electrofishing in the Savage River!

13 Shocking Facts About Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller

Talking heads act like Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is fair, impartial and unbiased.

But the facts are a wee bit different ...
Failure to Aggressively Prosecute the BCCI Scandal

The BBC noted:

[Mueller] is also known for leading the probe into the 1991 collapse of the Luxembourg-registered Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI).

Williams Safire wrote in the New York Times:

The B.C.C.I. scandal involves the laundering of drug money, the illicit financing of terrorism and of arms to Iraq, the easy purchase of respectability and the corruption of the world banking system.

For more than a decade, the biggest banking swindle in history worked beautifully. Between $5 billion and $15 billion was bilked from governments and individual depositors to be put to the most evil of purposes -- while lawmen and regulators slept.

Now the fight among investigators is coming out into the open. Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, who gave impetus to long-contained probes, told a Senate subcommittee headed by Senator John Kerry that he is getting no cooperation from the Thornburgh Justice Department.

Justice's Criminal Division chief, Robert Mueller, tells me he will have a hatchet-burying session with the independent-minded D.A. next week, and vehemently denies having told British intelligence to stop cooperating with the Manhattan grand jury.


78% Of US Workers Are Living 'Paycheck-To-Paycheck' & 71% Of Them Are In Debt

Are you living paycheck to paycheck? If so, you are just like most other hard working Americans.

As you will see below, 78 percent of full-time workers in the United States say that they are living paycheck to paycheck. That is the highest figure ever recorded, and it is yet more evidence that the middle class is under an increasing amount of stress. The cost of living is rising at a much faster pace than our paychecks are, and more families are falling out of the middle class with each passing month. Unfortunately, this is something that the mainstream media really doesn’t want to talk about these days. Instead, they just keep having us focus on the soaring financial markets which are being grossly artificially inflated by global central banks.

When I came across the numbers that I am about to share with you I was actually quite stunned. I knew that things were not great in “the real economy”, but I didn’t expect that the number of Americans living paycheck to paycheck would actually be rising. But that is precisely what a brand new survey that was just released by CareerBuilder is saying…

Seventy-eight percent of full-time workers said they live paycheck to paycheck, up from 75 percent last year, according to a recent report from CareerBuilder.

Overall, 71 percent of all U.S. workers said they’re now in debt, up from 68 percent a year ago, CareerBuilder said.

While 46 percent said their debt is manageable, 56 percent said they were in over their heads. About 56 percent also save $100 or less each month, according to CareerBuilder.


Millennials to Small Cities: Ready or Not, Here We Come

COLUMBUS, Ind. — Tyler and Alissa Hodge, two of the hundreds of young professionals who have moved here in recent years, noticed that despite the influx there was not a single city-style coffee shop downtown.

So the couple opened one in May, with sofas, baked goods and local micro-roaster beans, adding a play area as a nod to the family-friendly culture of this southern Indiana city and their own three children.

“The 18- to 35-year-olds expect something like that, but they just didn’t have it,” said Tyler Hodge, 32, who used crowdfunding to help finance the shop. The same tactic was used for a rock climbing gym opened in September by a group of young engineers who, like Hodge, spend their weekdays working at Cummins Inc., the diesel engine company that is the city’s largest employer.

“There’s not that much to do here for the young people,” said Juan Valencia, a 25-year-old Colombian immigrant who is one of the founders of the climbing gym. “We think this will help.”

Stockman Slams Mueller's Mugging Of America: The Case Of Baby George Papadopoulos

This is how the Deep State crushes disobedience by the unwashed American public. It indicts not only ham sandwiches but, apparently, political infants in diapers too, if that's what it takes. Hence the sudden notoriety of Baby George Papadopoulos, who pled guilty to "lying" about an essentially immaterial date to the FBI.

Oh, and by all signs and signals that plea came after this 30 year-old novice had been wearing a wire for several months.

So here's how this noxious act of bullying by Robert Mueller's Federally-deputized thugs came down. It seems that during the early months of 2016, when Trump was winning primary after primary against all mainstream media expectations, the Donald's establishment betters began attacking his foreign policy credentials with special malice aforethought.


Republicans cut tax break for NFL, let churches pick sides in political elections

The NFL would lose its ability to claim tax breaks for stadiums, colleges and universities would have to start paying taxes on massive endowments, and house “flippers” could no longer shield their income from the taxman under House Republicans’ proposed tax bill, which takes aim at a number of quirks that have developed over the years.

Republicans also settled some scores with the bill, including freeing churches from rules that prevent them from taking a stand in political elections and halting illegal immigrants’ ability to claim several major tax credits.

The changes produce tens of billions of dollars in savings a year — money that Republicans poured back into the tax code to reduce rates for lower-income Americans and to cut business taxes.

Axed from the tax code are breaks for electric car owners and big-time college donors looking to score better seats at football games. Also gone is the ability of divorcees to deduct some alimony payments.

All told, budget-cutters said, it’s a major step toward the flattening that Republicans had promised.


Hillary Slams Trump For Denouncing Islamic Terrorism

“Presidents Shouldn’t ‘Point Fingers’ or Divide After Tragedies.”

Hillary Clinton’s never ending ‘look at me, I’m still here’ tour continued on the Daily Show Wednesday night, where she criticized President Trump’s response to the vicious terrorist attack in New York by saying ‘Presidents shouldn’t point fingers’.

“What you want in a president is… trying to bring the country together, talk about what happened with the event that they are concerned about, but not to point fingers, not to scapegoat, not to try to set Americans against each other.” Hillary said.

“And, unfortunately, that just is not part of the job that our current president accepts or is willing to perform.” Clinton added.


Lamar Smith won’t seek re-election to House

Rep. Lamar Smith announced Thursday he will not seek reelection to the House in 2018.

The longtime Texas Republican noted in a letter that his term as chairman of the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee will end next year.

Smith’s congressional district, which takes in parts of Austin and San Antonio as well as rural counties to the west, has been solidly Republican in the past. Mitt Romney won nearly 60 percent of the vote there in 2012.


Reports Prove Northam Campaign Coordinated with Latino Victory Fund on ‘Sickening’ Ad

New campaign finance reports reveal that Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam’s campaign coordinated with the Latino Victory Fund (LVF) on the LVF’s “sickening” ad, which even the Washington Post called “vile.”

The Latino Victory Fund ran an ad that featured an Ed Gillespie supporter attempting to run down minority children. The Gillespie campaign decried this ad as “disgusting” and an “attack on the people of Virginia.”

A report from the Washington Post suggested that the LVF allegedly created their controversial ad to spur minority support for Virginia Democrat Ralph Northam due to private polling that reveals low support for the Virginia gubernatorial candidate.

Virginia State Sen. Barbara Favola said that Republicans, “Are evil, we’re the good guys” at a rally for Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam.

The Washington Post editorial board slammed the Latino Victory Fund’s “vile” and “despicable” ad and chided the Virginia Democrat gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam for calling out that ad.

Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act Becomes Law

WASHINGTON, DC: On Wednesday, November 2, President Trump signed into law H.R. 2989, the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act. This legislation establishes a commission to plan, develop, and carry out programs and activities to honor Frederick Douglass for the bicentennial anniversary of his birth. The original sponsors and cosponsors of this legislation, Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01), Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC-At large), Senator Ben Cardin (MD), and Senator Chris Van Hollen issued the following statements praising the enactment of this law:

“I commend my colleagues in Congress for their bipartisan and bicameral efforts to pass this legislation, and I am grateful to President Trump for his attention to this important matter. As we approach the bicentennial of Frederick Douglass’ birth, it is critical that Douglass’ contributions to our nation are recognized and celebrated. Frederick Douglass was the father of the abolitionist movement and left a lasting imprint on American culture,” said Congressman Harris. “Now that the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act is law, the commission can be formed to develop its recommendations. I am eager to hear the commission’s recommendations, and participate in the activities honoring this American hero and Eastern Shore native.”

“Frederick Douglass was one of the most transformative figures in our nation’s history,” said Delegate Norton. “It is only fitting that the federal government and the nation celebrate and honor his life on the 200th anniversary of his birth. Commemorative commissions for individuals are understandably rare, but there is perhaps none more deserving than Douglass. We in the District of Columbia are particularly proud he called D.C. home for most of his adult life. His home here in Southeast is an official national historic site and one of our city’s treasures, visited by thousands of tourists and residents annually. I am grateful that the House and Senate passed the bill with unanimous bipartisan support and that the President signed it in time for the commission to do its important work.”

Unity. Newt Endorses Judge Moore

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich endorsed Judge Roy Moore on Wednesday and asked for others to join in filling the U.S. Senate seat — vacated this year by the now-U.S. Attorney General — with a man who will help advance President Donald Trump’s agenda.

“There’s nothing more important for advancing the president’s agenda than having another conservative voice in the U.S. Senate – which is why we need Judge Roy Moore in Washington,” said Gingrich. “Roy Moore is a West Point graduate, Vietnam Veteran and constitutional scholar who has been a fighter for our conservative values. He will help rebuild our military and stop the gross overreach of Federal power.”

Gingrich was “proud” to endorse Moore and asked others to join him in his support of the Republican candidate

Moore welcomed Gingrich’s support with hopes of working together “on policy ideas to rebuild the military, reduce spending, and rein in the national debt.”

“Newt Gingrich is a visionary leader, not only for the conservative cause, but for the entire country. The Contract with America of 1994 was a landmark in American political history and forged the modern Republican Party’s identity as a party committed to tax cuts, welfare reform, and fiscal responsibility,” said Moore.

Evil Prosecutors

Earlier this week, the government revealed that a grand jury sitting in Washington, D.C., indicted a former Trump presidential campaign chairman and his former deputy and business partner for numerous felonies.

Both were accused of working as foreign agents and failing to report that status to the federal government, using shell corporations to launder income and obstruction of justice by lying to the federal government.

The financial crimes are alleged to have occurred from 2008 to 2014, and the obstruction charges from 2014 to 2017. At the same time it announced the above, the government revealed that a low-level former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, George Papadopoulos, had pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and become a government witness.

Does any of this relate to President Donald Trump? Here is the back story.

At the same time that Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates were guiding the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016, Russian agents were manipulating American social media sites so as to arouse chaos in general and animosity toward Hillary Clinton in particular. The Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as independent counsel to determine whether any Americans had criminally helped the Russians.


Ex-Gitmo Warden Agrees: Send NYC Terror Suspect to Guantanamo

Col. Michael Bumgarner, formerly the commander of the guard force at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, urged President Donald Trump to “immediately, within the next 24 hours” declare New York City terror attack suspect Sayfullo Saipov an enemy combatant and send him to the U.S. military prison at Gitmo.

Speaking in an interview with Breitbart Jerusalem, Bumgarner warned against reading Saipov his Miranda rights, and said that shipping him to Guantanamo Bay as an enemy combatant would allow for enhanced interrogation and send a strong message to other potential terrorists seeking to attack the U.S. domestically.

Trump himself voiced similar sentiments in remarks to reporters on Wednesday.

“If this attack had occurred in Syria it would have been very clear,” said Bumgarner. “It just happened to have occurred on our homeland. But he is at war with the United States and belongs in Guantanamo.”

Hillary took over the DNC months before she won nomination

Hillary Clinton's campaign seized control of the Democratic National Committee months before she won her party's nomination, diverted resources away from struggling state parties, and allowed the national party to accumulate a mountain of debt, writes former DNC interim chair Donna Brazile.

Brazile has written a tell-all article about the dysfunction and mismanagement she uncovered at the organization she was brought in to run after hacked emails revealed efforts by party insiders to tilt the scales toward Clinton.

Brazile, who was herself thrown into controversy when it was revealed she passed on debate questions to the Clinton camp, unloads on her predecessor, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and discloses a smoking gun document in the form of a fundraising agreement that sent resources to the Clinton camp.

Astonishingly, Elizabeth Warren - who campaigned with Clinton - said she believed Brazile.

Asked on CNN by Jake Tapper: 'Do you agree with notion that it was rigged' she answered simply: 'Yes.'


The Clinton Fusion Russian Collusion

Special counsel Robert Mueller issued the first three indictments from his investigation into whatHillary Clinton, her Democrat Party hacks and their MSM propaganda machine insist was Trump/Putin collusion to swing the 2016 presidential election.

There will be more indictments from the investigation into the “attack on our democracy,” as Clinton calls it, but they may land on the doorstep of the Clinton crime syndicate — especially in regard to the Obama/Clinton quid pro quo cash for uranium deal.

For months, The Washington (Bezos) Post had been promoting this Trump/Putin collusion farce as Watergate on steroids – until last week, when it could no longer conceal the fact that it had discovered the fake Trump/Putin dossier, the impetus for Mueller’s investigation, was actuallyfunded by Clinton and the Democrat National Committee.

Again, in the spirit of the Watergate investigation, I ask, “What did WaPo know, and when did they know it?” Did it really take 10 months for some Beltway “journalist” to make the connection between Clinton, the DNC and the Russians?

Four days before the WaPo report, Clinton was still asserting the Trump Collusion Delusion: “The closer the investigation about real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians … the more they just want to throw mud on the wall, and I’m their favorite target.”

She might already be Mueller’s “favorite target.”


Just Because We Need Reminding From Time To Time

The Clinton Crime Syndicate

The essential facts about Hillary Clinton's "ethical lapses" — corrupt activities that should render her ineligible for office, if not eligible for prison. Just follow the money...

In 1992, a young charismatic Democrat from Arkansas, William Jefferson Clinton, defeated a stale older GOP presidential candidate, and then, over two presidential terms, established himself as the undisputed champion of the “BIG lie.”

In 2008, another young charismatic Demo, Barack Hussein Obama, defeated another stale older GOP presidential candidate, and then, over two presidential terms, took the art of big lies to a whole new level.

However, their considerable records of duplicity and deception notwithstanding, both Bill and Barack have been bested by the most shameless of all prevaricators, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who lies about everything.

Liberals didn’t mind when former President Barack Obama forced his radical social policies on our military, but they certainly don’t want President Donald Trump rescinding them. So where do they turn? Unelected judges.

That’s what happened Monday, thanks to U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, who made the sweeping decision to keep the White House’s military transgender order from taking effect. Without the benefit of the administration’s data, military advisers, or intelligence reports, Kollar-Kotelly put herself in the position of setting a national security policy with very real consequences for our country.

As a result of her temporary injunction, the entire military will “revert to the status quo,” a dangerous environment where people like Chelsea (Bradley) Manning can serve openly, women can be forced to shower with biological men, and “pregnant males” can apply for maternity leave.


Trump calls DNC primary-rigging 'illegal,' slams 'fake' dossier

President Donald Trump gave a wide-ranging interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday, revealing his thoughts on this week’s terror attack in New York City and the campaign actions of the Democratic National Committee.

Mr. Trump responded to claims from former DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile alleging that the committee rigged last year’s Democratic presidential primary between Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

“It's illegal, number one, and it's really unfair to Bernie Sanders,” Trump said of the Vermont senator. “I’m not a Bernie Sanders fan, although I must say I got a lot of his votes when he was thrown out. Many of those people voted for me because of trade because I agreed with him on trade. … But that was, I thought that was terrible.”

Mr. Trump also responded to recent revelations that the DNC — along with the Clinton campaign — funded the now-infamous “opposition research” dossier released last January. The president called the findings “absolutely inconceivable.”

“That dossier, which is totally fake and made up it’s like a novel … is a disgrace and it should not have been allowed to be used and then I hear the kind of money they spent,” Trump said, referring to reports Democrats paid as much as $9 million on it. “I think it’s a disgrace that a thing like that can take place.”


Did Hillary’s rigging at the DNC push Biden out of the race?

The stunning revelation by longtime operative Donna Brazile that the Hillary Clinton campaign secretly took control — literal control — of the Democratic National Committee a year before Hillary became the party’s nominee is the talk of American politics.

As it should be.

Brazile’s piece in Politico describes her shock at the discovery of formal legal paperwork between the two entities when she took the reins at the DNC in August 2016. Brazile had been tapped for the job when DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz was forced to resign. Leaked e-mails had shown how Schultz had been putting her finger on the scale to help Clinton while the insurgent Bernie Sanders campaign was making a serious bid to seize the party nomination away from New York’s favorite carpetbagger.

Her account features ridiculous and unbelievable melodramatics — she says she “gasped” when she found out the truth and that she “lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music” to calm her before she called Bernie Sanders to deliver the awful news.

But silly though Brazile’s prose is, her account is vitally important not only for all those who want to understand how American politics works but also for the future of Brazile’s beloved party.

First, it raises key questions about what was happening as Hillary Clinton faced a time of trial in the middle of 2015. Her reputation was taking hits as her evasions and denials and untruths about what had happened to the private e-mail server she had set up illegitimately in 2009 seemed to mushroom on a daily basis.

As this was happening, she found herself with only two semi-serious challengers for the nomination — Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

There was another person out there — then-Vice President Joe Biden. Though grieving over the tragic loss of his son Beau, Biden was still seriously considering a late entry into the race. Indeed, it would not be until October that Biden would declare himself out of contention.


Hillary Clinton Now DEFENDING Fact That She Paid For Trump Dossier

Now I mean this – there is no end. NO end to Hillary Clinton’s excuses for her actions or non-actions. To that point, she was just on the the Daily Show with Trevor Noah, and said flat out that her and her campaign, paying for the notorious Steele dossier that looked into Donald Trump – her opponent – was totally acceptable…But of course not colluding with Russia to try and influence the 2016 election – a CLAIM that has ZERO evidence behind it.

Notice the difference between the two? One she did, and was CAUGHT, the other Trump didn’t do, and there is no evidence of at all…

Here is a bit of her giving off the excuse on the Daily Show:


RNC Chairwoman McDaniel: Every Democrat Should Denounce Latino Victory Fund Ad

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said that every Democrat should denounce the “sickening” Latino Victory Fund ad.

Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs asked McDaniel, “That ad is one of the most sickening things. It was put out, by the way, fronted by Eva Longoria, the Latino Victory ad, do we have that ad here? … The fact of the matter is that she is fronting an ad that is just despicable, showing people trying to run down young, apparently young Hispanics, running from these folks, portrayed as the followers of Ed Gillespie. It is one of the nastiest things I’ve ever seen, Ronna.”

McDaniel responded, “It’s despicable, and the fact that Ralph Northam, the candidate for governor in Virginia refuses to denounce this, every Democrat should be denouncing this ad, to see a person in a truck with a Gillespie sticker trying to run down little children. It feeds the worst of our country in terms of hate and division, and fear, and if Democrats are going to play on this, they are looking for a bad 2018, because I think Americans will reject that type of message, and rhetoric.”


Hollywood Pedophilia Scandal EXPLODES – Top Actor Names Names…

After the whole Harvey Weinstein mess exploded, Corey Feldman decided to go public with the names of his abusers. He’s finally started naming names of alleged child molesters he claims took advantage of him and other Hollywood children years ago. Feldman found fame in hits such as ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘The Goonies’. He says that his former assistant and actor Jon Grissom was the first to take advantage of him in the 1980s. This came out as Feldman did an interview with TV host Dr. Oz on Thursday. Perhaps justice will come for Feldman after all these years.

“This guy on his My Space page and his Facebook page has got pictures of me and Corey Haim,” Feldman said during the interview. “He still taunts it and flaunts it.” For his part, Grissom denies there was any sexual misconduct whatsoever. But it should be noted that Feldman has been saying he was molested for years. Grissom posted in a YouTube comment, “I said it’s not me I’m sick and tired of saying that when no one listens. So g*******t I’m not repeating it anymore.” If he didn’t do it, why doesn’t he get a lawyer and fight the accusation? Just sayin’.

Cecil Co. Man Charged With Animal Cruelty In Death Of His Dog

(NORTH EAST, MD) – Maryland State Police have arrested a Cecil County man for animal cruelty after a trooper had to end the suffering of the dog he had stabbed.

The suspect is identified as Reginald L. Farley II, 25, of North East, Md. He is charged with two counts of animal cruelty.

Just after 11:00 p.m. on November 1, 2017, a trooper from the North East Barrack was dispatched to the 100-block of Seneca Court in North East for the report of a dog attack. When the trooper arrived, the resident reported that a neighbor’s dog had just attacked her dog. She said the neighbor had retrieved his dog and taken it back to his residence in the 100-block of Louise Court.

While the trooper was obtaining the initial information, the sound of a dog yelping very loudly was heard coming from the direction of the 100-block of Louise Court. The trooper went to that location to investigate and met the suspect at his residence. Inquiring about the dog, the trooper was told the dog had been stabbed and was now dead.

Concerned about the welfare of the dog, the trooper asked to see it and was taken to the backyard of the home. The trooper found a wounded pit bull with a large knife protruding from its neck. The dog was still alive, but was obviously gravely wounded. The dog was suffering and had little chance of survival. After obtaining permission from the suspect, who owned the dog, the trooper used his Department-issued pistol to end the dog’s suffering.

During further investigation, the trooper learned the suspect had stabbed the dog after returning home with it from the complainant’s residence. The suspect was placed under arrest and taken to the North East Barrack for processing.

The complainant’s German shepherd was injured by the pit bull. The dog is expected to survive.


‘Unbelievable’: Heart Stents Fail to Ease Chest Pain

A procedure used to relieve chest pain in hundreds of thousands of heart patients each year is useless for many of them, researchers reported on Wednesday.

Their study focused on the insertion of stents, tiny wire cages, to open blocked arteries. The devices are lifesaving when used to open arteries in patients in the throes of a heart attack.

But they are most often used in patients who have a blocked artery and chest pain that occurs, for example, walking up a hill or going up stairs. Sometimes patients get stents when they have no pain at all, just blockages.

Heart disease is still the leading killer of Americans — 790,000 people have heart attacks each year — and stenting is a mainstay treatment in virtually every hospital. More than 500,000 heart patients worldwide have stents inserted each year to relieve chest pain, according to the researchers. Other estimates are far higher.

Farmers urged to bury their underpants to improve quality of their beef

Burying a pair of underpants in a field may not seem the obvious starting point for the perfect roast, but farmers are being urged to dig deep for tastier meat.

The Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) claim interring a pair of cotton smalls in a pasture can reveal vital information about soil fertility.

According to the experts, sterile and lifeless soil will keep underwear intact, but organically thriving soil will eat away at the briefs, leaving nothing but the elastic waistband.

Dig up the pants after just two months, and it is possible to judge how healthy the land is..

America Fights Back: 1 Million Cord-Cutters Freak Out Cable Industry

The only way patriotic Americans can forever destroy the likes of CNN, MSNBC, ESPN, and a whole herd of left-wing entertainment corporations is to cut the cord, meaning cancel your cable or satellite package. Thankfully, that message appears to be gaining steam; last quarter, a whopping one million patriots cut the cable cord.

As BGR reports, “Cord-cutting, or at least the speed at which people are ditching pay TV, is on track to be the biggest upset of the year.”

The reason all of this wonderful news is an “upset” is because for the longest time, some of these multinational entertainment companies were out there claiming that cord-cutting had peaked; the worst was behind them.

At the time, and for two reasons, this was patent nonsense.

1) Streaming TV is exploding. On top of Netflix, Amazon, Hulu — all three of which you can subscribe to for about one-third of the price of the average cable bill — there is an endless supply of free streaming channels that offer 24/7 news, movies, and television shows.

A couple of weeks ago, I found Pluto TV, which offers a ton of streaming live networks and works just like your cable package. Oh, and it is free.

Honor military members at Veterans Day Ceremony on Nov. 11

SALISBURY, Md. – The Wicomico County War Memorial Committee invites the community to join in honoring our military veterans at a ceremony on Saturday, Nov. 11, at 11 a.m. The ceremony will take place at the Wicomico War Veterans’ Memorial, located directly in front of the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center at 500 Glen Ave. in Salisbury.

The ceremony, which is being coordinated by the Wicomico County War Memorial Committee, includes patriotic music, prayer and remembrance to honor all veterans. Veterans Day is set aside to thank and honor living veterans who served honorably in the military, in wartime or peacetime.

In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be canceled.

Veterans Day, initially termed Armistice Day, was created to honor World War I veterans and celebrate the official ending of the First World War, which occurred at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11, 1918. In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, legislation was approved by the 83rd U.S. Congress to change the name from Armistice Day to Veterans Day – thereby making Nov. 11 a day in which all American veterans of wars could be honored.

The Wicomico War Veterans’ Memorial at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center is a fitting location for this ceremony as the Civic Center is itself a living war memorial to all veterans. At the outside Wicomico War Veterans’ Memorial, flags from each service branch, along with a United States, Maryland, Wicomico County and the POW-MIA flag now proudly fly over a brick wall displaying bronze plaques with the names of Wicomico County’s fallen veterans from World War II and beyond. To learn more about the Wicomico War Veterans’ Memorial and the men and women it was built to honor, visit

Atty. Toensing: Obama Was Briefed on Russian Bribery, Kickback Operation

Although President Barack Obama apparently was briefed in 2009-2014 about a bribery and money laundering scheme involving a Russian official and Russian subsidiary involved in the transportation of uranium in the United States, the Obama administration, with the blessing of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, agreed to selling the Vancouver-based Uranium One company to Rosatom (Russia's State Atomic Energy Corporation), which gave the Russians (and President Vladimir Putin) control over 20% of U.S. uranium production.

Prior to, during, and after this sale in October 2010, at least nine investors in Uranium One gave $145 million to the Clinton Foundation. Bill Clinton personally received $500,000 for a speech sponsored by a Russian bank that supported the purchase of Uranium One.

An attorney, Victoria Toensing, who represents an undercover informant who helped the FBI in its investigation of the kickback and money laundering scheme, said her client has information on how bribery money came from Russian operatives, and how these Russians were seeking to expand their holdings in the uranium market and "peddle influence with the State Department and the Clintons."

Toensing, speaking on the Oct. 25 edition of Hannity, also said that her client "was being told by the FBI that President Obama was being briefed on this matter" as the investigation was occuring 2009-2014.

Investigative reporters John Solomon and Sara Carter, also on the Hannity program, confirmed some of Toensing's statements and stressed that the money being used to buy influence was "coming from Moscow."

Here’s How ISIS Won Over the Villagers Where the Green Berets Were Ambushed

The strategy of ISIS and al Qaeda in Africa is to offer local law and order and basic support services while building hate for the U.S. In Niger, in Tongo Tongo, it worked.

CALABAR, Nigeria—When Daouda Chikoto lived in Tongo Tongo in southwestern Niger, a grenade fired from an unknown location fell on a compound in the village, where children were playing on a Tuesday afternoon in September 2016. As he recalls, six were killed, and without knowing where the grenade came from the locals blamed it on the Americans.

The children were slaughtered just at the moment media reported that the United States was building a $100 million drone base in central Niger. Never mind that the reports said specifically the drones were for surveillance, Tongo Tongo villagers understood whatever they heard to mean that the U.S. had already established a drone station and was going to target villages close to Mali. After the September incident they concluded that America had targeted them.

Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC

Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music. I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call.

I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton’s team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested. I’d had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails. But who knew if some of them might have been forged? I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.

So I followed the money. My predecessor, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, had not been the most active chair in fundraising at a time when President Barack Obama’s neglect had left the party in significant debt. As Hillary’s campaign gained momentum, she resolved the party’s debt and put it on a starvation diet. It had become dependent on her campaign for survival, for which she expected to wield control of its operations.

Debbie was not a good manager. She hadn’t been very interested in controlling the party—she let Clinton’s headquarters in Brooklyn do as it desired so she didn’t have to inform the party officers how bad the situation was. How much control Brooklyn had and for how long was still something I had been trying to uncover for the last few weeks.

By September 7, the day I called Bernie, I had found my proof and it broke my heart.

Gitmo judge sends Marine general lawyer to 21 days confinement for disobeying orders


The USS Cole case judge Wednesday found the Marine general in charge of war court defense teams guilty of contempt for refusing to follow the judge’s orders and sentenced him to 21 days confinement and to pay a $1,000 fine.

Air Force Col. Vance Spath also declared “null and void” a decision by Marine Brig. Gen. John Baker, 50, to release three civilian defense attorneys from the capital terror case. The lawyers resigned last month over a covert breach of attorney-client privilege involving something so secretive at the terror prison that the public cannot know.

Wednesday evening, with Baker confined to his quarters in a trailer park behind the courthouse, Judge Spath issued another order: Directing the three lawyers — Rick Kammen, Rosa Eliades and Mary Spears — to litigate Friday in the death-penalty case against Abd al Rahim al Nashiri remotely from the Washington D.C., area by video feed to Guantánamo.
