    Two armed men held up a Woodlawn bar Tuesday evening — where a group of Baltimore County police officers had gathered for a retirement party, the department said. As officers were celebrating a longtime sergeant’s retirement in the main room of Monaghan's Pub on Gwynn Oak Avenue, two masked men approached the carryout counter nearby around 5:30 p.m., police said. Monaghan's owner Jack Milani said the men demanded cash from the register and then took off. Some of the off-duty officers attending the retirement party gave chase and arrested the two men nearby, the department said. Police charged Joseph McInnis...

    A 67-year-old man who previously served prison time in the murder of a 6-year-old child, pleaded guilty to a 2001 rape after investigators linked him to the scene of that crime through a pair of dentures he left behind. The dentures were part of a sex assault kit backlog that wasn't tested until recently, though authorities may have been able to identify Thomas Maupin sooner -- his name was printed on the inside of the false teeth.

Jackie Speier, a California Democrat, showed a lack of knowledge about the presidency, the executive branch, and the FBI’s position within the federal government.

    Try though she may -- nay, fight though she persistently fights -- Senator Elizabeth Warren has a branding problem. Granted, she's doing her darndest to change that. The title of her new book, for example -- "This Fight is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class." Not the more succinct "This is Our Fight" or, tighter still, "This Fight." Operative word here -- fight. As in, "Fighting the Fight That's Ours to Fight: One Feisty, Fiery Senator Punches Away for America's Embattled Middle Class." Why the strenuous rebranding? Could it be that Warren knows when her name come...

    Le Pen also wants to end immigration, slash crime, eradicate Islamism, pull France out of the EU with its emphasis on open borders for all EU citizens I predict that contrary to all the French polls, Marine Le Pen, the charismatic right wing leader of the French National Front Party, will ultimately win the French presidency. I see some of the same signs, both global and local, that led me to successfully predict the Brexit win and the election of Donald Trump several months before the actual American election.

    Al Franken made a strong case for himself during the Gorsuch confirmation hearings, but in a last-minute surge, his Democrat Senate colleague Kamala Harris has stolen the crown (or dunce cap) from his grasp. The magnitude of this achievement should not be underestimated: after all, Franken is a man whose distinctive competence is beclowning himself. With this tweet, Senator Harris has achieved some sort of immortality: Judge Gorsuch has consistently valued legalisms over real lives. I won't support his nomination. https://t.co/7SLAOI6MXx — Kamala Harris (@SenKamalaHarris) March 24, 2017 Brian Anderson aptly sums up the message here: “Kamala Harris says she...

    A recent (and first of its kind) study verifies again what many Christians have long warned about the homosexual lifestyle. Published in August of 2016 by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the study—"Sexual Identity, Sex of Sexual Contacts, and Health Related Behaviors Among Students in Grades 9-12"—looked at a wide variety of risky behaviors among U.S. high school students. .. In almost every instance, the risky behavior measured—especially behaviors that are often linked to a moral decision—was much more prevalent among teenagers engaging in homosexual activity. In addition, and unsurprisingly, those students with the healthiest outcomes...

    Some U.S. lawmakers still take their jobs seriously, especially members of the House Committee on Homeland Security. You see, as a crowning component of his fetish for “normalizing” relations with (embracing and subsidizing) the Terror-Sponsoring Castro-Family-Crime-Syndicate (called “Cuba” by Obama and his lapdog mainstream media) President Obama has given rapid and enthusiastic approval for six U.S. airlines to start flying one hundred direct flights a week from nine airports in Terror-Sponsoring Cuba to fifteen airports in our homeland.In light of this, some members of the U.S. House Committee on Homeland Security thought it prudent to check on what security measures...

    Harari calls it “the rise of the useless class” and ranks it as one of the most dire threats of the 21st century. In a nutshell, as artificial intelligence gets smarter, more humans are pushed out of the job market. No one knows what to study at college, because no one knows what skills learned at 20 will be relevant at 40. Before you know it, billions of people are useless, not through chance but by definition.

    Residents of the California's Bay Area are eyeing the exits, according to a survey by the Bay Area Council. Some 34 percent of San Francisco-area residents are considering leaving because of high housing costs and traffic, The Mercury News reports. "We can whine about this, or we can win by solving our traffic and housing problems," Carl Guardino, president of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, told The Mercury News. "The last time the Bay Area had seemingly solved its traffic problems was the worldwide recession of 2008. A recession is not how we want to solve our traffic and housing...

    Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval endorsed John Kasich on Saturday, throwing his support behind the Ohio Governor’s long-shot bid for the Republican nomination just before the state picks its delegates. “John Kasich is the only candidate in the race with a real plan to deliver results, and he is the only Republican who can defeat Hillary Clinton in the fall,” Sandoval said in a statement. “I look forward to helping his team spread this message to voters in the months ahead.”

    National front-runners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are favored to win in Pennsylvania later this month, but both have just single-digit leads in the Keystone State, a new poll finds. Trump has the support of 39% of Republicans there, according to a new Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday. That's a nine-point advantage over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 30% support and a 15-point lead over John Kasich who had 24%. The Ohio governor has previously made the case that he could have a strong showing in Pennsylvania, where he was born.

    Ted Cruz will grab an upset win over Donald Trump in Arizona's presidential primary election on Tuesday, as he's the "only candidate with any kind of organization out here," a close confidant of Sen. John McCain predicts. "They have him positioned to spring the upset," Kurt Davis, a GOP operative in Arizona, told The Hill. "They just have to deliver." According to Real Clear Politics, Trump is ahead of Cruz by 13 points in the state's polls, but in Arizona, Republicans on the ground say the race's margin is narrower, and Cruz could pull off the upset.

    New York woman arrested for driving with a handmade license plate. On Friday, CBS News reported that Amanda Schweickert, 28, of Sardinia is in trouble for using a fake license plate. She is not supposed to be driving because she has a suspended registration and no car insurance. However, it did not stop her from using a little creativity. She decided to create her own license plate. Authorities say she used a piece of cardboard and painted blue text on it. Although the plate didn’t look too dreadful, it fooled no one. On Wednesday, a police officer pulled Schweickert over...

    A $2,700 per head fundraiser hosted by Chelsea Clinton Wednesday afternoon attracted so little interest that the Hillary Clinton campaign ended up selling the last of its 60 tickets for just $50. Clinton stopped by a New York City location for SoulCycle, a popular indoor cycling exercise chain, for what seemed like a quick and easy fundraiser. For $2,700, guests were promised a photo with Chelsea and a chance to see her in a relatively closed environment with few people. But it turns out the number of New Yorkers eager to shell out to attend a Chelsea Clinton cycling session...

    A news crew's vehicle was broken during an anti-robbery press conference in Washington, D.C. Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser's press conference to launch an anti-robbery campaign got off to a bad start when equipment was stolen from inside a news crew's vehicle. A "smash and grab" heist of a WJLA-TV news crew's car happened before Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier finished speaking about the city's new task force, the station reported Wednesday.
