  • Ben Jealous is demanding TV stations stop airing this commercial by his GOP opponent

    Former NAACP president and current Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous is demanding that television stations stop airing a commercial from his political opponent. “Evidence to the controversy” An attorney representing the Ben Jealous campaign sent a letter to four television stations telling them to pull down a political ad from incumbent Governor Larry Hogan. “The Republican Governor’s Association in this advertisement uses selective editing techniques to make the false claim that Mr. Jealous is a socialist, despite clear and repeated evidence to the controversy,” wrote James Temple Jr., which likely meant to say “evidence to the contrary.” Former NAACP president...
  • Think Confederate monuments are racist? Consider pioneer monuments

    08/09/2018 6:58:38 PM PDT · by Altura Ct. · 13 replies
    In San Francisco, there is an an 800-ton monument that retells California history, from the Spanish missions to American settlement. Several bronze sculptures and relief plaques depict American Indians, white miners, missionaries and settlers. A female figure symbolizing white culture stands atop a massive stone pillar. The design of the “pioneer monument” was celebrated in newspapers across the country when it was erected in 1894. Today, however, apctivists argue that the monument – particularly its depiction of a Spanish missionary and Mexican “vaquero,” or cowboy, towering over an American Indian – is demeaning to American Indians. Should the city take...

    Abortionist's Waste Hauler Puts Holy Water and Crosses on Containers of Aborted Babies David Henritzy, CEO of Bio-Haz Solutions, has responded to the outrage created by his company picking up aborted baby remains from third-trimester abortionist Leroy Carhart. In a voicemail recording to concerned citizens, Henritzy stated: “First and foremost, we at Bio-Haz Solutions are against all abortions. However, we feel a reverential and moral responsibility with the goodness of God and His blessing that we take of the souls of the children with no voice. No other company does what we do in a very reverent and respectful way...
  • Meet Lucy McHale, the Rosa Parks of Middle School (Girl, 14, stands up to gay bullies!)

    The Stream ^ | August 7, 2018 | Austin Ruse
    Lucy McHale, now 14, worked at the snack bar at the local pool in Olney, Maryland. One day a boy from her school leaned over the counter and told one of Lucy’s co-workers to kiss him. In today’s #MeToo environment this would be a clear violation, except the person he wanted to kiss was another boy. Because the boy demanding a kiss was supposedly gay, and because Lucy stepped in to defend her co-worker, she became the devil in the story, and the target of harassment at Rosa Parks Middle School. Sometime later, Lucy was sitting with two of her...

    On August 1, 2018, The Daily Times in Blount County, Tennessee headlined: “Mysterious loud booms reported in Maryville. Police said several loud booms reported in the Sandy Springs and Pearson Springs area Monday night (July 30, 2018) remain unexplained. Maryville Police Chief Tony Crisp said several reports of the phenomenon, mostly described as four loud booms or explosions, came in around 9:30 PM Monday night. There was no weather and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) showed no recent earthquakes in the area.” “We checked and did not find anything and could never establish the cause of that boom. It’s just...
  • Republican National Committee links to porn Twitter instead of Maryland account

    The Republican National Committee’s link to the Maryland Republican Party’s Twitter account actually takes users to the page of Sexy Car Babes, a mix-up that occurred after the state party changed the name of its twitter handle and didn’t tell the national group. GOP.com listed the Maryland Republican Party’s Twitter account as @mdreps. That Twitter account has been tweeting out porn links since Jan. 25. It also provides a link to sexycarbabes.com, a website that has nothing to do with cars. As of 1:42 p.m. Monday, the site still linked to @mdreps. Maryland Republican officials said they switched to a...

    Is it time for martial law in Democrat-run cities? Here’s a sampling of some recent headlines: The Chicago Tribune, May 7: “Chicago sees its most violent week of the year: 9 killed, 76 wounded”; The Baltimore Sun, May 7: “Double shooting of teens is first in series of shootings from Saturday evening through Sunday in Baltimore”; ABC, New Orleans, May 7: “NOPD investigating multiple shootings over the weekend in New Orleans.” Equally alarming as the carnage is how desensitized we’ve become to normalized violence in these culturally rich and historically significant American cities. Just how deadly and dangerous is the...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele likened President Donald Trump’s rally last night in Wilkes-Barre, PA to a “circus” that is causing “swing voters” to move away from Republicans. Steele said, “Pennsylvania is a bellwether for a number of important races coming up this fall and the fact that the president is so narrowly playing to a base, that he feels good in that setting, he’s having fun, he’s riffing and cussing and doing all this and those folks are loving it. To Charlie’s point, the rest of the country, the independent voters,...

    The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for D.C. ruled against a Christmas ad Tuesday that the Archdiocese of Washington wanted to run on the Metro. The Washington Times reports the court ruled that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority can prohibit religious and political ads, as long as it does so consistently. In 2015, the Metro adopted a policy that prohibits political, religious or advocacy ads on its transportation system. Then, in 2017, it rejected the archdiocese’s Christmas ad, arguing the ad violated its policy. The ad showed the silhouette of three shepherds and sheep facing a bright star, the...

    MC GOP ^ | July 29, 2018 | Mark Uncapher
    Marylanders spend more time commuting to work than the residents of every other state, apart from New York. The time spent stuck in I-270 or Beltway traffic is maddeningly frustrating. Congestion results in less time spent with families and discourages workers from taking jobs involving longer commutes. Economists estimate that congestion costs run into the billions. The statewide cost of congestion based on auto delay, truck delay and wasted fuel and emissions was estimated at $2 billion in 2015. This is an increase of 22% from the $1.7 billion estimated cost for congestion in 2013. As serious a problem as...

    Bethesda, MD – A new medical waste company has been hired by AbortionClinics.org (ACO), a late-term abortion facility located in Bethesda, Maryland, after two other companies cancelled contracts to pick up aborted baby remains there last month. The new company, Bio-Haz Solutions, Inc., based in Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania, was first seen at ACO in early July making a pick-up of four large and apparently very heavy boxes. ACO, which is owned and operated by the notorious late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart of Nebraska, is one of a handful of abortion facilities in the U.S. that openly abort babies through all nine months...

    LAUREL, Md. — Prince George’s County filed a legal case against a Laurel couple in their 90s over a wheelchair ramp in their own home. To avoid legal trouble, the elderly couple’s son tore down the ramp, trapping the woman in her own home. The county permitting department said the family had no permit to build a wheelchair ramp in front of their own home. "I don't want my husband trying to lift me now," said 91 year old Evelyn Strahle. Evelyn Strahle's husband David is 94 years old. "Two people had to put her in a wheelchair and lift...

    The Frederick Police Department told the paper Rosenberg and another unidentified man had been approached by a detective after they were spotted peeking into parked cars on the street late at night. The authorities believed the men intended to break into the cars and steal from them. It was only after Rosenberg was arrested (and found to have a small bag of marijuana and an air pistol on him) that he began offering the police donuts. Rosenberg reportedly made the same offer repeatedly, leading officers to, at first, believe he was poking fun at them. When he kept repeating himself,...

    Neal Simon, chief executive officer of a Rockville-based asset management firm, has filed more than 12,000 signatures to get on the November ballot as an “unaffiliated”—independent—candidate for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Ben Cardin. Maryland requires at least 10,000 signatures for a statewide independent candidate; Simon’s Thursday filing with the State Board of Elections came more than two weeks before the Aug. 6 deadline. Among the names appearing on Simon’s petitions: Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and his running mate, Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford. They signed July 18 while Simon and his organization visited the J. Millard Tawes...

    Once upon a time there were three politicians who were very anti-gun. One was from the volcanic state of Hawaii, one from the Chesapeake Bay state of Maryland and the last from the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts. Let’s call them the “Gang of 3.” They got together and came up with a plan to discredit gun dealers. You can almost see them stirring a giant caldron in a darkened room. They have been trying to tell the American people that firearms and especially “assault” weapons should be banned. Their plan of targeting one gun at a time to finally eliminate...

    House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump “seeks to establish a more authoritarian regime.” Houer was responding to a question about whether former CIA Director John Brennan should be allowed to keep his security clearance after calling a sitting president’s actions “treasonous.” At his regular pen-and-pad briefing with reporters, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer: “Former CIA Director John Brennan has publicly declared the sitting president ‘treasonous.’ Should he be permitted to keep his security clearance?” Hoyer responded: “I’m very, very concerned. This is one instance—but there are so many others—where this president opts to promote totalitarian responses...

    For Rachel Conner, the 2018 election season has been a moment of revelation. A 27-year-old social worker, Ms. Conner voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primaries, spurning the more liberal Bernie Sanders, whom many of her peers backed. But Ms. Conner changed course in this year’s campaign for governor, after concluding that Democrats could only win with more daring messages on issues like public health and immigration. And so on a recent Wednesday, she enlisted two other young women to volunteer for Abdul El-Sayed, a 33-year-old advocate of single-payer health care running an uphill race in Michigan to become...

    The National Education Association thinks Colin Kaepernick is an ideal role model. Many members, however, may take their loyalty elsewhere. And frankly, they should. On July 1, the NEA honored Kaepernick, along with several other persons and organizations, with a “Human and Civil Rights” award in recognition of the former pro-football star’s campaign “to fight racial oppression through education and social justice activism.” The born-again political revolutionary, who these last couple years has been peddling the idea that police are conducting a nationwide pogrom against innocent blacks, accepted the honor with predictable melodrama. “To me, this is bigger than football...
