    House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is asking four other top committee leaders to share any documents or materials they think could be related to his committee’s investigation into possible obstruction and potential abuses of power by President Trump. In a letter on Thursday, Nadler wrote to Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) to ask them to provide such information as Nadler's committee weighs whether to introduce articles of impeachment against the president. "I am writing to request information, including documents...
  • Baltimore abandons surveillance plane because things are going so well

    08/22/2019 1:30:39 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 37 replies ^ | August 22, 2019 | JAZZ SHAW
    A couple of years ago, the city of Baltimore launched a pilot program (no pun intended) that involved having a private contractor fly a surveillance plane over the city almost constantly, recording high-resolution video of the activity on the streets. It was surprisingly successful, resulting in police being able to retrace the movements of people engaged in shootings and other crimes back to their homes or to their post-crime destinations.The public wasn’t initially informed of the program and when word leaked out there were complaints from the usual digital privacy advocates. The program was eventually terminated. This year, however, the...
  • Question to Elijah Cummings: Where Did the Billions In Missing Federal Money for Baltimore Go?

    Frontpage Mag ^ | 08/22/2019 | Matthew Vadum
    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...
  • Maryland schools aim to include LGBT and disability rights in history curriculum

    Washington Post ^ | August 16, 2019 | Samantha Schmidt
    Maryland school officials are developing curriculum standards for history classes to include lessons about the fight for civil rights for the LGBT community and Americans with disabilities. If the changes are approved, Maryland would join at least four other states that have taken steps to require public schools to teach lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, which advocates say has long been absent from textbooks and classroom lessons. Last month, dozens of state lawmakers signed a letter calling on Maryland school officials to craft new curriculum standards addressing the rights of LGBT and disabled communities. The letter specifically mentioned the...
  • NBC Dismisses Blaming the Shooter as Just a Talking Point of ‘Gun Control Opponents’

    08/20/2019 8:51:01 AM PDT · by rktman · 20 replies ^ | 8/19/2019 | scott whitlock
    NBC over the weekend pushed gun control repeatedly, casually dismissing calls for focusing culpability on the perpetrators of mass shooters as simply a talking point of “gun control opponents.” The Today show also touted using children to promote the gun control agenda. On Sunday, reporter Mike Viqueira sounded annoyed that Donald Trump would blame the shooters: “At his New Hampshire rally, Thursday, no mention of checks on criminal records, only for mental health history. The President echoing a familiar argument of gun control opponents.” He then played a clip of Trump noting, “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger....
  • Federal Judge Rules Against Maryland To Uncover Obvious Vote Fraud Potential

    americanthinker ^ | August 16, 2019 | Thomas Lifson
    Democrats who keep telling us that vote fraud is rare and insignificant fight like hell to make sure the evidence remains buried — even when there are obvious danger signs such as exists in Montgomery County, Maryland, where there are more registered voters than resident citizens. You might think officials would be anxious to find out why that is and would be eager to clean up their voter rolls. But Maryland officials fought in federal court to prevent Judicial Watch from obtaining voter data lists. And they got skunked. Judicial Watch announced that a federal court has ordered the State...

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor who in December stepped down as Trump’s U.N. ambassador, did not approve. “This is so unnecessary,” she tweeted, along with a rolling-eyes emoiji.

  • CNN's Jake Tapper Fails to Challenge Bernie Sanders on Obvious Baltimore Hypocrisy

    Newsbusters ^ | July 28, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Jake Tapper had an elephant in the room in the form of Bernie Sanders on Sunday's CNN State of the Union and very noticeably avoided addressing his hypocrisy in slamming President Donald Trump for tweeting critically about the living conditions in Baltimore. In 2015, Sanders made very similar remarks as Trump about Baltimore, comparing it to a Third World country filled with hundreds of uninhabitable buildings. So could Tapper have been unaware of the socialist Senator from Vermont's criticisms of Baltimore? Perhaps but only if he had been hiding under a rock for the past couple of days. The Sanders...

    President Trump said Monday that Democrats blasting him for decrying conditions in Baltimore should also label Sen. Bernie Sanders “a racist” for calling Baltimore a “Third World country” and a "disgrace" in 2015 if they want to be consistent. “Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard!” Trump tweeted. “The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe even to new heights of success and glory, but not...

    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...

    Townhall ^ | 08/07/2019 | Timothy Meads
    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...

    Here's what President Donald Trump tweeted about Baltimore's congressman and his city: "Rep. Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is far worse and more dangerous. His district is considered the worst in the USA." "As proven last week during a congressional tour, the border is clean, efficient and well run, just very crowded," Trump added. Cumming's "district is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help...

    President Donald Trump just can't be correct about anything having to do with Baltimore, right? Well, when a Baltimore television station, WJZ, fact checked a White House claim that Baltimore has a higher murder rate than the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, perhaps they expected that assertion would be proven false. So imagine their surprise at what their fact check revealed.

In the segment Monday, host Don Lemon asked Reverend Bill Owens, founder and president of the coalition of African American Pastors, to comment on the closed door meeting he and 19 other black faith leaders had with Trump, after the president criticized Congressman Elijah Cummings. The Chyron read: "CNN Alert: President Hosts African American Pastors And Faith Leaders At The...

    One could consider the billions trillions of dollars in taxpayer funds already spent on places like Baltimore a form of reparations.  But it should be clear by now that more money from the government is not going to fix places like Baltimore. Ever since Lyndon Johnson and the Democratic Party gave us the infamous promises of the "Great Society" — which was supposed to result in "the total elimination of poverty and racial injustice" — for decades, liberals across the U.S. have promised minorities, especially black Americans, that if they would only vote for Democrats, life would be better. Fifty-five years,...
