    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday expressed indifference about mobs tearing down statues of historical figures across the country. "People will do what they do," Pelosi said when asked about Baltimore's statue of Christopher Columbus being destroyed by a mob. "I don't even have my grandmother's earrings." She added that heroic figures such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln would "want us to be talking about the future." Baltimore police did nothing to stop vandals from dragging the statue down from its perch in Little Italy and throwing it piecemeal into the harbor on...

    A crowd of shouting protesters yanked down the Christopher Columbus statue near Little Italy, dragged it to the edge of Baltimore's Inner Harbor and rolled it with a splash into the water as fireworks went off around the city on the night of the Fourth of July. Dedicated in 1984, the statue is the latest monument in the U.S. to fall this year during the national reckoning over racism and police violence that also has toppled statues of Confederate figures and enslavers around the country.....

    An archbishop has hired a “diversity and inclusion” consultant who is unabashedly pro-LGBT; supports the Marxist, pro-abortion, anti-family Black Lives Matter movement; and sees Republicans as evil to help him “grapple with racial tension” in a city that has long been plagued with racial unrest and violence. Baltimore archbishop William E. Lori announced in a June 5 letter that he has hired Howard Ross, founder and president of the Udarta consulting firm in Washington, D.C., to help him “implement the recommendations outlined in his second pastoral reflection on racism, ‘The Journey to Racial Justice: Repentance, Healing and Action.’” According to...

Police did not name the victim Sunday morning. Authorities said he was attacked by two men, but did not provide a thorough description of the suspects.
  • Baltimore State’s Attorney dismisses 600 criminal cases, tries to vacate 5,000

    Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby dismissed almost 600 criminal cases for what she determined are minor offenses. In other words, minor crimes are allowed in crime-ridden Baltimore. The minor crimes include, among others, drug possession, paraphernalia possession, prostitution (allows for trafficking), trespassing, minor traffic offenses, open container, rogues and vagabond, and urinating/defecating in public. Isn’t that lovely? She boasted that she already filed to vacate almost 5,000 Circuit Court and District Court marijuana convictions. But Circuit Court Judge W. Michel Pierson and District Court Judge Kathleen Sweeney completely shot down Mosby’s request to erase those convictions on April 26, The...

    Four months after she was sentenced, former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is due to report to prison Friday at an all-female facility in Alabama. Pugh, who pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy and tax evasion in a self-dealing scheme involving her “Healthy Holly” children’s books, was en route Thursday to Alabama, according to her attorney Andrew White. The Democrat initially was scheduled to report in April, but won a delay that month as prison officials across the country tried to assess and contain the threat of the coronavirus. Justice Department officials limited the movement of inmates to minimize the spread...

    In the Baltimore suburb of Dundalk, Pastor Stacey Shiflett made some headlines recently when he stood at the lectern in the Calvary Baptist Church and tore up a cease and desist order he’d received from the government. Declaring that his congregation was “going to do it God’s way,” he insisted that if Walmart could be open, then his church would serve the needs of the congregation. He proceeded to do just that on the following Sunday, while ensuring that congregants observed social distancing rules and had their temperatures taken upon arrival.Good to their word, the government turned around and...

    Courtney says she was home with her son who’s been doing virtual learning since schools shut down in March. “So, I answered the door. The police officer was, he was very nice. He explained to me that he was coming to address an issue with my son's school,” Courtney told Project Baltimore. “And then explained to me that he was here to search for weapons, in my home. And I consented to let him in. And then I, unfortunately, stood there and watched police officers enter my 11-year-old son's bedroom.” Courtney was told someone had seen the guns in her...

    House speaker Nancy Pelosi, following the lead of Antifa and Black Lives Matter, is doing her part to address Congress's priority these days, which is Denouncing the Confederates. She's busy calling for removal of Confederate statues from the Capitol, apparently noticing for the first time after 33 years in the House that the Confederates all around her were a problem. According to Breitbart News: "As I have said before, the halls of Congress are the very heart of our democracy. The statues in the Capitol should embody our highest ideals as Americans, expressing who we are and who we aspire...

    The fringe left, to include adviser to Joe Biden Rep. AOC, is emboldened and fixed on the notion that defunding police or at least dismantling their agencies and starting over is going to fix everything. The idea seems to have sprung up out of nothing and purely as an overreaction to the tragic police killing of George Floyd. But it didn’t. Two U.S. cities, both on the east coast, have taken some form of this approach to reforming their police departments. For a variety of reasons, the two cities have not experienced the same outcome. First, Camden, New Jersey. Despite...

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Baltimore’s disgraced former mayor who already has been sentenced to three years in federal prison in a scandal over her “Healthy Holly” children's books touting exercise and nutrition is expected to plead guilty to a state perjury charge, Maryland's state prosecutor confirmed Tuesday. Catherine Pugh is expected to enter the guilty plea to the misdemeanor charge at a June 19 hearing in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court, said State Prosecutor Charlton Howard. “As indicated in the order of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court scheduling a plea hearing on June 19th, I anticipate Ms. Pugh will enter...
  • One week later, Baltimore nears end of vote-counting in drawn-out Democratic mayoral primary (still counting)

    Baltimore election officials neared the end of the ballot-counting process Tuesday, one week after a mayoral primary that was the most significant race in Maryland’s first statewide attempt at a vote-by-mail election. The counting has slowed, however. Election staff worked to manually copy the remaining ballots to correct an error that prevented them from being scanned. Crews entered the day with 2,000 to 3,000 ballots left to count, and had completed 1,870 by 4 p.m. On previous days, up to 2,500 ballots were scanned per hour. As the work slowed, so did the continuous clatter inside the city election board’s...

    Maryland's congressional delegation on Thursday called for a review of the state's recent primary election, adding to mounting bipartisan criticism of elections officials. In a joint statement, Sens. Benjamin L. Cardin and Chris Van Hollen, along with Reps. Steny H. Hoyer, C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, John P. Sarbanes, Kweisi Mfume, Anthony G. Brown, Jamie B. Raskin and David J. Trone, all Democrats, demanded "an urgent, thorough and rigorous review of the Maryland primary election." "The primary election in Maryland on Tuesday was conducted under extraordinary circumstances that required timing changes and significant adjustments to voting methods," the statement reads.

    Election results vanished from the state website. Officials discovered ballots misprinted. One candidate for mayor sent in his lawyer. Wednesday brought a rocky start to the canvass that should reveal Baltimore’s next mayor. By the afternoon, state lawmakers and the governor demanded elections administrators explain themselves. Maryland’s first statewide vote-by-mail election already meant that complete results would take longer than voters were used to, as ballots trickle in by mail and elections officials “quarantine" documents before opening them because of the new coronavirus. But add errors on ballots and problems in tabulating returns and the primary’s close races may well...

    Mail-in votes in a local Baltimore, Maryland, election were discarded and not counted due to a ballot error, officials say. On Tuesday evening, voters went to the polls in Baltimore city elections — including the race in City Council District 1 where incumbent Democrat Zeke Cohen faced a challenge from Democrat Paris Bienert. The race, though, ended in disarray when a ballot error caused mail-in votes to be thrown out and not counted, according to the Baltimore Sun:

    The Baltimore mayoral seat that was vacated last year when Catherine Pugh resigned over a corruption scandal -- which led to a three-year prison sentence -- now appears likely to be filled by a former mayor who has a past conviction of her own. With Democratic primary returns still coming in after Tuesday’s vote, the front-runner appears to be Sheila Dixon, who resigned as mayor in 2010 after a jury found her guilty of misdemeanor embezzlement for misappropriating gift cards for the poor. Dixon leads a pack of more than 20 Democratic candidates that includes current Acting Mayor Bernard C....
