    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) teed off against the House impeachment inquiry on Tuesday, marking his first comments since Congress returned from its two-week break. "House Democrats are finally indulging in their impeachment obsession. Full steam ahead," McConnell said during a speech from the Senate floor, adding that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had "crumbled" to the "left-wing impeachment caucus." "I don't think many of us were expecting to witness a clinic in terms of fairness or due process. But even by their own partisan standards, House Democrats have already found new ways to lower the bar," McConnell added.

    A 2-year-old boy was shot in the stomach in a "cowardly, violent act" of apparent road rage in Baltimore, authorities said. "You shot a child. Whoever you thought you were shooting at, you didn't shoot," Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said. The 2-year-old, who had been in the car with his family, was taken to the hospital in "somewhat stable condition" and is expected to survive, police said Saturday. The boy remained in the hospital Monday morning as the suspected shooter, Javon Johnson, 33, was charged, said police. It's believed the suspect's car and the victim's car were among those...

    PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, MD — Maryland state lawmaker Tawanna Gaines, a Democrat from Prince George's County, has abruptly resigned after being suspected of using money she raised for her reelection campaign for personal use. She submitted her resignation to House Speaker Adrienne Jones on Friday, Oct. 4. She now faces a federal wire fraud charge. Gaines, 67, has served in the Maryland House of Delegates since 2001 and, according to the AP, defrauded her campaign and its contributors of more than $22,000 from at least January 2015 through April 2018. "After much thought and consideration, I have decided to submit...

    BALTIMORE (AP) — Property records show former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, who resigned in May, has sold her Maryland home for less than half of its assessed value.

Property records list the home’s assessed value as $187,700. Pugh resigned in May under pressure amid a flurry of investigations into whether she arranged bulk sales of her self-published children’s books to disguise hundreds of thousands of dollars in kickbacks. She’s still being investigated at the state...

    Baltimore police said one of their officers was surrounded by over 100 people in a parking lot in northwest Baltimore later Saturday night. An officer responded shortly before 10 p.m. to the lot at Wabash Avenue and W. Northern Parkway where a “very large group” had gathered with their cars to “partake in illegal activities, police said. The officer got out of his car and approached the group when around 100 to 150 people surrounded the officer, police said. He then called for backup, and when the other officers arrived the crowd dispersed without incident. No one was injured or...

    Conservative activist Scott Presler mobilized 200 volunteers to remove 50 tons of trash from a homeless camp in Los Angeles, California on Saturday. Presler’s volunteers removed more than five tons of waste per hour over a nine-hour span – and did so without any assistance from the government. On Saturday morning, Presler posted Twitter videos of the ground of the homeless camp covered in waste, before cleanup efforts began around 9a.m., which he followed with videos showing his group’s progress – and the end result. It’s almost 9 a.m. & we’re removing waste from a homeless camp in Los Angeles....

    Beset by injuries and tragedy, Ausmus' team struggled for nearly every month of the summer, except for a burst of inspired play through its grief over the midseason death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs in a hotel room in Texas. Only five major league regulars made it through the entire season without going on the injured list. "I want to thank Brad for his hard work and dedication to this organization over the last two seasons as both a special assistant and a manager," Eppler said in a statement. "He navigated this franchise through one of its most difficult seasons with...

    A 59-year-old man has died from injuries suffered during an attack by two teenage brothers prompted by the man's refusal to give them a dollar. John Weed was attending the Great Frederick Fair in Maryland on Friday with his family when he was approached by the teens, ages 15 and 16. According to the prosecution, the 15-year-old sucker-punched Weed after he refused to give them a dollar, knocking him unconscious. Video evidence of the attack shows chaos and laughter in moments after Weed hits the pavement; one of the boys even spits on his lifeless body. Medics flew the victim...
  • Baltimore Restaurant Accused of Racism as Dress Code Gets National Attention

    The western Journal ^ | SEPT. 21, 2019 | C. Douglas Golden
    It seems like one of these stories comes across our collective news feeds every few months. A restaurant or a nightclub posts a dress code somewhere on the premises. Someone spots the dress code and takes a picture of it, then posts it to Twitter or Facebook and talks about how racist it is. An extreme outpouring of conspicuous wokeness ensues. The establishment either apologizes or says “sorry not sorry.” The answer doesn’t really matter since the wokeness will just be ratcheted up. If the answer is sorry, sorry isn’t good enough. If they don’t say sorry, well, they should...

    Ilhan Omar praised corrupt California for moving ahead with a bill to ban private prisons. The new legislation would come into effect after the 2020 presidential election “on or after January 1, 2020” and would prohibit California’s government from “entering into or renewing a contract with a private, for-profit prison to incarcerate state inmates.” Where will they put these people? They don’t care as long as it’s not in prison. The attack on private prisons is an attack on ICE detention. This is an important step. No one should profit from putting human beings in cages — especially in a...

    September 13th and 14th mark the anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore during the War of 1812, remembered primarily for the unsuccessful British bombardment of Fort McHenry and Francis Scott Key's penning the words of "The Star-Spangled Banner" while interned on a British warship. President James Madison had declared war on Great Britain in June 1812 in response to interference with American shipping and the impressment of U.S. merchant seamen during the Napoleonic wars, as well as the British stirring up the Indians of the Ohio Valley to resist American settlement. Following an abortive American invasion of southern Canada, the...

    While Baltimore is known fondly as "Charm City" to people who live there, President Donald Trump calls it a "disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess" and on Thursday evening, he plans to venture north of Washington for a visit. The president is scheduled to address House Republicans as part of their three-day retreat at a hotel in downtown Baltimore, near the Inner Harbor. Protests, including a "No Racists in Our Streets" rally, were planned against a visit by the president, who has called the city the "worst in the USA" and a place "no human being would want to live."...

    Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in “coaching” migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law. In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S. “Although...

    Lamar Jackson tied a franchise record with five touchdown passes as his Baltimore Ravens routed the host Miami Dolphins 59-10 in Sunday’s season opener for both teams. ....Several Miami mistakes led to Baltimore’s first-half assault, including a Fitzpatrick interception and a fumbled punt return by Jakeem Grant. In addition, the Ravens — leading 35-10 at the time — faked a punt with a direct snap to safety Anthony Levine, who rumbled 60 yards on a fourth-and-1 play for a first down to Miami’s 10 late in the second quarter.

She has also been accused by Jewish organizations of holding anti-Semitic views.

    The mainstream media conveniently manipulates the flow of information to keep with its liberal agenda and this week we have yet another example; widespread coverage involving the gruesome murder of a young Maryland man omits that most of the suspects are illegal immigrants affiliated with a violent criminal gang. The 21-year-old victim’s body was found at the end of July in Towson, a community of about 55,000 located roughly 11 miles north of Baltimore City. Police said the victim, Daniel Alejandro Cuellar, was found lying near an apartment building with “trauma to the body.” This week seven suspects were arrested...
