    President Trump went after purported congressional watchdog Elijah Cummings recently, slamming the Democrat congressman for failing to improve his troubled Baltimore, Maryland, district despite the inflow of billions of dollars in federal aid during and in the years leading up to Trump’s administration. Cummings came to the attention of conservatives as he zealously defended the IRS throughout the Lois Lerner saga. Lerner is the corrupt IRS tax-exempt division executive who engineered the tax agency’s targeting of conservative nonprofits during the Obama administration. Cummings also apparently conspired with Lerner to sabotage True the Vote, a leading grassroots electoral integrity group. In...

    Former NFL Linebacker and businessman Jack Brewer and Trump. President Trump’s criticism of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) over the living conditions in Baltimore were reportedly brought up at the request of former NFL linebacker Jack Brewer. "I had a chance to meet with President Trump, and I told him please call out Elijah Cummings and Baltimore. I asked him to do that three weeks ago and he did it," the former NFL linebacker said on Fox Nation’s “Deep Dive.” Brewer explained he was motivated to reach out to Trump after a visit to Baltimore. “I'm seeing these kids that...

    Maryland Democratic Party Chair Maya Cummings, the wife of House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), reached out on Twitter over the weekend for help identifying a suspect in a break-in at the couple's house last month. “Has anyone in the Twitterverse ever seen the symbol on this hat? It was the only distinguishing feature of the man who recently broke into our home. I’m showing it to you to crowdsource the logo. Please let me know if you’ve seen it (or him) before,” Cummings tweeted on Saturday. The following day she crowdsourced information on the images by posting an...

The residents told a grim story about the decline of the area they love, plagued by crime and murder, and said Trump was right in his assessment...

    Last week, Townhall covered MAGA supporter Scott Presler's call to action in Baltimore by inviting "Americans to help Americans" and go clean up neighborhoods in Charm City. Presler at first kept secret when the event would occur for fear of retaliation from the far-left like Antifa. But, on Saturday, Presler and 100 other citizens from all over the country traveled to West Baltimore for the massive trash clean up. By all measures, it was hugely successful. However, on Monday, the Baltimore Sun's editorial board ran an op-ed, trashing Presler and his group saying they only did the event to embarrass Baltimore...

    BALTIMORE — A new audit ordered amid the controversy about former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh's book deals makes no mention that her financial dealings touched the city's Children and Youth Fund. The fund is managed by a charity that took donations and then bought Pugh's books. **SNIP** To date, about $36 million has been allocated to the fund, but just $9.6 million has gone out of the fund to organizations serving children and youth. The city pays Associated Black Charities, which is headed by Diane Bell McKoy, to manage the fund. The audit was ordered in the spring after ABC...

    BALTIMORE — Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings on Saturday invited President Donald Trump and other Americans to Baltimore, taking the high road after a barrage of presidential tweets disparaging the black-majority city and its long-serving Democratic congressman. Cummings made his first public remarks after a week of Trump's name-calling and criticism during the opening of a neighborhood park near his home. He called Baltimore "a great community." He reminded those gathered at the park in Druid Heights of the city's history, home to the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and, more recently, the author Ta-Nehisi Coats. At 68, and using...

    BALTIMORE, MD — When a man broke into the building in the middle of the night where U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings and his wife live, the couple did not call 911 right away. After the intruder got in, they took action. Hours later, the congressman's wife, Maya Rockeymoore, contacted authorities. Two exterior doors lead to the residential part of the apartment building where the couple lives on the first and second floor in the 2000 block of Madison Avenue, according to the police report. Around 3:40 a.m. on Saturday, July 27, they were alerted by a cell phone application connected...

    A watchdog group has filed a complaint with the IRS for the mishandling of a non-profit organization run by Rep. Elijah Cummings’ wife, Maya according to One America News’ Jack Posobiec. The findings are shocking. According to the report, the nonprofit group was “cutting deals” with special interest groups directly tied to Cummings’ House Oversight Committee. Maya runs her non-profit “Global Policy Solutions” along with a separate for-profit venture. The watchdog alleges her group “received $6.2 million in grants from various corporate backers including Google, JP Morgan, Prudential & Johnson and Johnson.” The complaint also highlighted that Mrs. Cummings’ separate...

    The Trump campaign uncovered video Wednesday of Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings calling his district in Baltimore “drug-infested” in 1999. “This morning, I left my community of Baltimore, a drug-infested area, where a lot of the drugs we are talking about today have already taken the lives of so many children,” Cummings said during a 1999 congressional hearing. “The same children that I watched 14 or 15 years ago as they grew up now walking around like zombies.” “This is only 40 miles away from here,” he added.

    Maryland Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings declined an offer to tour a Baltimore Housing and Urban Development (HUD) facility with HUD secretary Ben Carson on Wednesday. HUD invited Cummings to tour the facility with Carson on Tuesday, however Cummings rejected the invitation, the Daily Caller has learned. When asked about Cummings’ absence at a press conference, Carson said that he did not know why Cummings did not attend the tour but guessed there may have been a scheduling issue. The Daily Caller reported exclusively on Tuesday that Carson would visit Baltimore in the wake of President Donald Trump’s tweets calling the...

    When President Trump referred to Baltimore as a "disgusting rat and rodent infested mess", he could have just as easily been talking about its two-legged Democrat rats as its four-legged Norwegian rats. Charm City's Norwegian rats (rattus norvegicus) usually only come out at night and munch on trash in the shadows of housing projects, while its Democrat rats (rattus democratus) sashay around in the light of day and munch on taxpayer goodies in the marble houses of government. If you want to see a good example of rattus democratus in its native Baltimorean habitat, draw the curtains, send the kiddies...

    Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) is blaming President Trump and racism for the city of Baltimore’s well-documented crime, poverty, rodent, and despair problems. He is doing this even though, by any objective measure, Trump has done more for black Americans than any president in decades, including our first black president. Thanks to Trump’s economic and immigration policies, black unemployment is at its lowest level EVER. And I add “immigration policies” to that mix because illegal aliens are helping to devastate the inner-cities that are all run by Democrats who give sanctuary to the same illegals who steal countless starter jobs from...

    Critics and skeptics of President Trump were not very well going to listen to him when he warned about the perilous state the city of Baltimore was in, but perhaps they'll listen to actual Baltimore police officers.

    After the Baltimore riots in 2015, President Barack Obama spoke about communities in the major Maryland city that are struggling with “abject poverty,” “no investment,” and drugs. Obama partially blamed the riots on the lack of opportunity in Baltimore communities, pointing out the high rates of crime, substandard education, and drug abuse. (RELATED: Obama Refers To Baltimore Rioters As ‘Criminals And Thugs’) Riots are more likely to occur “if you have impoverished communities that have been stripped away of opportunities, where children are born into abject poverty, they’ve got parents — often because of substance abuse problems, or incarceration, or...
