  • Howie Carr: Peter Strzok drank that dirty water

    Boston Herald ^ | August 17, 2018 | Howie Carr
    Just one link in chain of corruption out of Boston FBI office. Disgraced, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok worked in the Boston office of the Famous But Incompetent agency. Why am I not surprised? The most corrupt G-man in American history getting his start in the most corrupt outpost of the squalid agency — it makes perfect sense. .... Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from gangsters. Some of them were...

  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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? (May 2018)

    WND ^ | 5/17/2018 | Rich Logis
    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Trying to find love in D.C. can be tricky. If you’re a young Trump administration staffer, it might be near impossible. GOP employees and other right-wingers have been complaining that dating in one of the most Democratic cities in America is a political minefield. They’ve been called out, flipped off and told they are personally responsible for the death of democracy. One 29-year-old lobbyist told Fox News that learning to date in a Trump world is “absolutely insane.” “It’s getting so bad,” the lobbyist, who asked to remain anonymous because she works with the administration, said.

    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...
