Salisbury, You're About To Get Folked Again

The document with Salisbury City Budget for next year that Jake Day has just proposed has tons of hype and pictures, but details hard to find. The Mayor’s office expense is 36% higher than in FY 2017. Could not find anything about the money they owe to Wicomico County or the lawsuit that it filed to collect.

Wonder how much time and money that document is costing the public. to prepare and publish.

Details here:

Compare the City's junk-filled, confusing and voluminous budget to the much shorter and easier to understand Wicomico County proposed budget that Bob Culver has submitted -

Salisbury Baskin-Robbins Closing April 20th!

Breaking News: Starbucks will shut over 8,000 shops in the U.S. on May 29 for racial-bias training after the arrest of two black men at one in Philadelphia

Starbucks said on Tuesday it would close more than 8,000 of its stores in the United States on May 29 to conduct racial-bias training for nearly 175,000 employees.

The move comes amid an outcry prompted by the arrests of two African-American men at a Starbucks location in Philadelphia last week.

Cash tolls to be a thing of the past in Maryland

BALTIMORE — In an effort to cut minutes off commute times and help the environment, officials with the Maryland Transportation Authority announced it will transition into only electronic toll collection at all toll facilities throughout Maryland, much like those already in place on the InterCounty Connector.

MDTA Executive Director Kevin Reigrut told 11 News in a statement, "MDTA is always exploring ways to improve the level of customer service Marylanders deserve, and these new contracts will help modernize the way we do business."

"The only issue with that is, if you really do get rid of the cash, all people have not converted over to E-ZPass, and to be honest, some people don't want to because of location," said motorist Tess Finnocchiaro.

Some motorists seemed split on the issue, but generally agreed it could save time.

"Personally, the times I have gone through, I think it would be a lot easier to just take a picture than just paying the cash. So yeah, I think it would be easier," said motorist Taylor Southers.


Prominent gay rights lawyer burns himself to death to protest global warming

David Buckel, 60, left behind a charred corpse and a typed suicide note that said he was burning himself to death using “fossil fuel” to reflect how mankind was likewise killing itself, police sources said.

He left the note in a manila envelope marked “To The Police,” recovered from inside a black metal pushcart he discarded at the scene.

“Most humans on the planet now breathe air made unhealthy by fossil fuels, and many die early deaths as a result,” Buckel wrote in his note, which he also sent to the New York Times.

“My early death by fossil fuel reflects what we are doing to ourselves.”

Dick's to destroy all unsold firearms pulled from shelves after Parkland shooting

Dick’s Sporting Goods announced on Monday it will destroy all of the unsold firearms it pulled off store shelves in February after the deadly Parkland school shooting.

The sports retailer decided to destroy the assault-style rifles instead of returning them to the manufacturer, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported. On Feb. 28, 2018, the Pittsburgh-based company announced it would immediately stop selling assault-style rifles and ban the sale of all guns to anyone under 21. It was not immediately clear how many firearms will be destroyed.

“We are in the process of destroying all firearms and accessories that are no longer for sale as a result of our February 28th policy change,” a spokesperson from Dick’s Sporting Goods told the media outlet. “We are destroying the firearms in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations.”

Somerset County Official Above The Law...

While this vehicle had an ID Tag proving they are from Somerset County in the front window, parking in a fire lane in front of Buffalo Wild Wings in Salisbury is against the law, period. This vehicle sat there for at least 30 minutes, according to a witness.

College hosts no-whites-allowed pool party

Event is meant to help ethnic minorities ‘build community’

A private college in California will be hosting a pool party later today at which white people will be excluded, with only “people who identify as POC” permitted to attend.

“POC” stands for “person of color.” The event will take place at Scripps College’s Sallie Tiernan Field House pool, according to The Claremont Independent.

A Facebook announcement of the event lists the party as being hosted by Café Con Leche, a student group identified in the post as “the badass Latinx at Scripps.”

“Bring your chanclas and the homies over to our nice ass resort pool, LET’S TAKE UP SPACE,” the announcement reads, advertising the event as “a safe space for…students that identify as POC to come together and build community.”

“Enjoy some yummy snacks, tunes that slappp, and the company of other POC,” the listing reads.


The Left Hates Chick-fil-A Because of Christianity

Evidently for the Left, tolerance is no longer in vogue; instead, overt anti-Christian bigotry has become its siren call. This attitude is exemplified by a recent article in The New Yorker entitled “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” In the piece, Dan Piepenbring, rather than critique Chick-fil-A over the flavor of its Spicy Chicken Sandwich or the speed of its service, blasts the growing success of Chick-fil-A over its “infiltration” of New York with “its pervasive Christian traditionalism.”

Piepenbring sees as problematic the fact that Chick-fil-A’s Atlanta headquarters facility “is adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet,” and that “its stores close on Sundays.” Piepenbring writes, “There’s something especially distasteful about Chick-fil-A, which has sought to portray itself as better than other fast food: cleaner, gentler, and more ethical, with its poultry slightly healthier than the mystery meat of burgers.” He adds, “Its politics, its décor, and its commercial-evangelical messaging are inflected with this suburban piety.”

He wasn’t done. Piepenbring relates, “The restaurant’s corporate purpose still begins with the words ‘to glorify God,’ and that proselytism thrums below the surface of the Fulton Street restaurant, which has the ersatz homespun ambiance of a megachurch.” Wow, so any company with traditional Christian beliefs that dares to apply its beliefs is “an infiltration.” How “woke” of him to call out this consistent belief system..


Family Farmers Face Prison for Calling Skim Milk by Its Name

Forget narcotics. Uncle Sam has a new substance to crack down on: all-natural skim milk.

Food and Drug Administration regulations make it a federal crime for dairy farmers to call all-natural skim milk exactly what it is—skim milk. Instead, the FDA demands that farmers label additive-free skim milk as “imitation milk product,” because, in the FDA’s mind, skim milk just isn’t the real thing.

The FDA’s finicky rules are not going unchallenged, however. Attorneys with the Institute for Justice are challenging those rules on behalf of a dairy farmer, Randy Sowers, who wants to sell all-natural products and label them honestly, without the threat of fines or imprisonment.

Randy and Karen Sowers founded their South Mountain Creamery in Maryland on rented land back in 1981. They took out a loan and bought 100 cows. Today, three generations of Sowers work on their family’s 2,200 acre farm. They have more than 600 cattle, plus 16,000 chickens. Their family employs more than 75 people.


Black Guy Walks Into Starbucks, Says "Racist," Immediately Gets Free Coffee

White guilt gone wild

A new video shows a black man walking into Starbucks, dropping the word “racist” and immediately being given a free coffee.

The stunt was in response to news that Starbucks is set to close 8,000 stores for an afternoon for race-bias training.

Bryan Sharpe, who goes by “Hotep Jesus” on Twitter, recorded himself walking into a Starbucks and telling a barista, “I heard ya’ll was racist, so I came to get my free coffee.”


John McCain in 'Stable Condition' After Surgery Treating Intestinal Infection

Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) underwent surgery at Phoenix’s Mayo Clinic over the weekend due to an intestinal infection and is in "stable condition," according to an announcement from his office Monday evening.

McCain, 81, who has been home in Arizona battling brain cancer for the last few months, recently got an infection connected to diverticulitis, which is a condition caused by pouches forming in the wall of the colon. He has had physical therapy at home in Cornville, Ariz., while he has worked to maintain his duties as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

"Over the last few months, Senator McCain has been participating in physical therapy at his home in Cornville, Arizona, as he recovers from the side effects of cancer treatment. He has remained engaged on his work as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and has enjoyed frequent visits from his family, friends, staff and Senate colleagues," the statement said. "Senator McCain and his family are grateful to the senator’s excellent care team, and appreciate the support and prayers they continue to receive from people all over the country."

Glioblastoma, the form of cancer with which McCain was diagnosed, has required him to undergo radiation treatment, according to the Washington Post.


LGBT Activists Attack the Transgender Romance ‘Anything,’ Because the Trans ‘Woman’ Is Played by a ‘Cisgender’ Man, Matt Bomer

Next month, a romantic film about a transgender "woman" will hit theaters and the trailer launched this week. LGBT activists and transgender actors in particular are far from pleased, however. While a main character, Freda Von Rhenburg, is transgender, the actor playing him isn't. Matt Bomer himself is not only biologically male but also identifies as man (often referred to as "cisgender" or "cis"). Even so, he plays a man ... who identifies as a woman.

"I auditioned for this. I told them they shouldn't have a cis man play a trans woman. They didn't care," tweeted Jen Richards, a transgender actor best known for the television series "Her Story."

Another transgender actress, Jamie Clayton, who plays a transgender blogger in the Netflix series "Sense8," posted a more passive-aggressive message. "I really hope you both choose to do some actual good for the trans community one day," Clayton tweeted, tagging Bomer and "Fast & Furious" actress Michelle Rodriguez, who plays a female-to-male transgender in the upcoming film "The Assignment."


Investigators Seek Public Assistance To Identify Driver Of Vehicle In Homicide Investigation

(SALISBURY, MD) – Investigators from the Maryland State Police State Homicide Unit seek public assistance in identifying the driver of a vehicle who is a person of interest in a Salisbury homicide investigation.

Police are seeking the identity of the driver of a red 2012-2017 Hyundai Elantra with Maryland tags, pictured in the photo below in front of the VFW, in the 800-block of West Main Street in Salisbury. Police believe the driver is an African American male. He is not a suspect. He is a person of interest.

The driver of the red Hyundai Elantra is a person of interest in the homicide investigation of Jaquanta S. Walton, aka Jaquonta Walton, 20, of Salisbury, Md. Walton was pronounced dead the morning of June 10, 2017 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center after suffering a gunshot wound.

The preliminary investigation indicates that Walton and a friend had been attending a party on June 9, 2017 at the VFW, in the 800-block of West Main Street, Salisbury. The establishment closed at 1:00 a.m. and dozens of people, including the Walton, were out on the parking lot.

Police believe Walton was on the parking lot, when he was approached by an unknown suspect who shot him at least once in the torso, before fleeing the scene on foot. Walton got into a private vehicle and was driven to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, where he was dropped off. No one else on the parking lot when the shooting occurred reported being injured.

Maryland State Police crime scene technicians responded to the scene and processed the area for evidence. Investigators continue to conduct interviews and follow-up on leads as they work to determine what happened and who is responsible.

Anyone with information about the driver of the red Hyundai Elantra or this murder is urged to call Crime Solvers at 410-548-1776. Calls may remain confidential.

U.S. History Text: White, Christian Americans Finding It ‘Difficult to Adjust’ to Becoming Minority

A soon-to-be-released updated edition of an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History textbook teaches students that white Christian Americans are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority and puts forward the perception that President Donald Trump’s election occurred because his apparent “racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.”

James Fraser’s By the People: A History of the United States, 2ndEdition, is published by Pearson and has a 2019 copyright date.

Alex Clark – co-host of the Indiana-based morning radio Joe and Alex Show– tweeted photos of the cover and several pages of the book that she reports were sent to her by a friend in Minnesota.

“In case you didn’t think there was an effort going on in public schools to indoctrinate kids with an anti-conservative agenda, a friend of mine took pictures and highlighted parts of this AP US History book,” she wrote. “She says, ‘This was the new ‘sample’ AP US HISTORY book sent to my school."

The book pages that were photographed included a paragraph that describes Trump’s cabinet as wealthy, and “largely white males, more so than any presidential cabinet since Ronald Reagan.”

Fraser describes Trump’s supporters as “a mostly older, often rural or suburban, and overwhelmingly white group,” while Hillary Clinton’s supporters are portrayed as fearful “the election had been determined by people who were afraid of a rapidly developing ethnic diversity of the country, discomfort with their candidate’s gender, and nostalgia for an earlier time in the nation’s history.”

“They also worried about the mental stability of the president-elect and the anger that he and his supporters brought to the nation,” Fraser adds about Clinton voters.


Local Media Fake News & Lies

You know it's bad when local media sources go to our customers/advertisers and flat out LIE in order to hopefully garnish a sale.

I was recently informed that another advertiser was confronted and told Salisbury News numbers are fake and not true. They were told that we have an ap that adds multiple hits and that when we publish our numbers they're not true.

Unfortunately for that media source, this company follows where their Internet traffic comes from and openly admitted, (and even told them) that the numbers they see from SBYNews blows everyone else away, their words, not mine.

Look, I spend a LOT of time and money keeping this Site going. As many of you know, I start at 3:00 AM and most days go till 10:00 PM. I provide news 24 hours a day and I in no way, shape or form rig ANY numbers and here's proof. 

When you go to the top of your home page and click the down arrow to see the last 10 Websites you've recently visited, is there only ONCE! Yes, there are other Blogs that frequently cheat and there is a program that can in fact refresh that page every ten seconds without you even knowing. Some of your local news Websites instantly make their page one of your favorites WITHOUT your permission. If ANYONE is cheating the system it's them, not me. 

When I publish our traffic, it's a fact. I've worked extremely hard to EARN what I have, (number wise) and I will NOT stand for LIARS belittling this hard work. In fact, if I ever hear them doing this again I will file an immediate lawsuit against them as my customers/advertisers are my witnesses. Know right here and now, you've been warned. I am not afraid to prove to a Judge that I do not lie and this will cost these media sources dearly.

Machete Attack Every 90 Minutes in ‘Gun-Free’ Britain

Recorded machete attacks in the UK have shot up by nearly five times in just three years, with the majority in the capital, London.

The huge number of crimes committed with the deadly, sword-like weapons means there is an average of 15 a day in the UK, or one every 90 minutes.

Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests by the Daily Mail show that police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes in the last two months of 2017.

As violent crime surges across the country, and even faster in London, the long blades, designed for chopping undergrowth, appear to be a weapon of choice for criminals in the UK, which is governed by strict gun-control laws.


Biden: Republicans ‘Don’t Want Black Folks Voting’

Sunday on MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” former Vice President Joe Biden told host Al Sharpton that Republicans didn’t want African-Americans voting.

Partial transcript as follows:

SHARPTON: "Let me ask you about voting rights. That was another thing the Obama-Biden administration was heavy on under attorney general well as Lynch going in with lawsuits against voter ID and doing in to deal with voter suppression. They have said that foreigners are voting."

BIDEN: "It’s a lie. It’s a flat lie. The assertion the president made from the beginning is a flat lie. Every study, every program -every commission that looked at it said it’s simply not true. It’s part of the big lie. You realize just in past year, in 24 states, the administration’s allies have introduced 60 pieces of legislation, or maybe 70 pieces of legislation, to curtail the franchise. It’s what these guys are all about, man. These Republicans don’t want working-class people voting. They don’t want black folks voting.. "

Morrissey: "We're All Called Racist Now, The Word is Meaningless"

Pop icon Morrissey has once again savaged political correctness in a new interview, remarking, “we’re all called racist now, and the word is actually meaningless.”

Explaining that he no longer talked to mainstream media because they misrepresent and smear him, the British music legend said that the press constantly tries to label him a racist in a failed attempt to have his fans abandon him.

“And as far as racism goes, the modern Loony Left seem to forget that Hitler was Left wing!” said Morrissey. “But of course, we are all called racist now, and the word is actually meaningless. It’s just a way of changing the subject. When someone calls you racist, what they are saying is “hmm, you actually have a point, and I don’t know how to answer it, so perhaps if I distract you by calling you a bigot we’ll both forget how enlightened your comment was.”
