  • Liberal condescension at college - how can I go on?

    me | 8/19/17 | me
    I work for a college which is very liberal these days, in your face banners and condescending "workshops" open to all frequently, with "diversity credit" (reference below). It's sickening enough. Including having Moochelle Uhbama here the other year. But since Trump was elected, now we get hand-wringing e-mails about "hatred" and that we need to beware of evil right-wing people who cause violence (LOL). Got another one today.

    I submit the current and a proposed revision to the Maryland flag. The current flag, the coolest in the US, also contains the "Crossland Banner." Marylanders who fought for the Confederacy flew the banner. The new flag has something for everyone, even snowflakes!

    CBS Baltimore ^ | August 2, 2017 | WJZ-TV via CBS Baltimore
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — During a social media campaign to derail HBO’s planned modern-day Southern slavery drama, one Twitter user’s posts about the history of the Maryland flag got a lot of attention. “What a lot of people don’t know is that the Maryland flag is half confederate,” @benjancewicz wrote, using the hashtag #NoConfederate. And, he’s kind of right. Yes, even though Maryland was a Union state, the flag — which is featured on the state’s license plate and is a popular adornment for clothing and accessories — does contain some Confederate symbolism. The flag’s older history is tied to George...

    Germantown, MD — As the notorious and aging abortionist LeRoy Carhart cuts back on his late-term abortion schedule at Germantown Reproductive Health Services, a mystery abortionist has been picking up the slack. This man, who has yet to be identified, was caught recently in a video entering the abortion facility under police escort. But that’s not the only way he has been seen entering the clinic. Pro-life activists have seen him climbing down a ladder into the window well at the back of the office and entering through a window. This bizarre and unexplained behavior has been observed particularly on...

    If you want to know where the progressive left wants to take U.S. elections, a trip through Maryland's Washington, D.C.-area suburban counties is instructive. The City of College Park in Prince George's County is on the verge of becoming the ninth city in Maryland to allow non-citizens – including illegal aliens – to vote in municipal elections.  In a revealing 20-minute video of a June 7 council meeting, city officials discussed how best to get rid of the citizenship requirement so that virtually anyone of legal age living in the city can vote.  A council vote is slated for August...

Even as racial tensions make headlines in this famously blue-collar town on the Chesapeake, slick waterfront projects and farm-to-table dining have arrived along with a new, younger generation of residents set on building the place they want to live in. One native Marylander travels to the city he first knew as a kid to meet the doers and dreamers driving Baltimore's next act.

(Photo: Andrew Harnik/The Washington Times) A long-simmering challenge against Maryland’s 2013 Firearms Safety Act has been appealed to the nation’s highest court. Attorneys for the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association and the National Shooting Sports Foundation on Friday filed the 325-page petition to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Stephen Kolbe and a series of gun stores and shooting clubs asking the court to protect popular semi-automatic rifles and magazines from prohibition. At stake is the 2013...
  • National study puts timeline on impact of sea-level rise in Maryland and Virginia

    On Maryland’s Eastern Shore, rising seawater levels and chronic flooding threaten to disrupt daily life, damage homes and businesses, and swallow land in the relatively near future, according to a new study. For some parts of the Eastern Shore, there soon may be no more there there. That’s the takeaway from a report released Wednesday by the Union of Concerned Scientists. The study, “When Rising Seas Hit Home: Hard Choices Ahead for Hundreds of U.S. Coastal Communities,” looks at the impact rising sea levels caused by global warming will have on coastal regions across the country. Maryland, with 3,100 miles...

    NORTH EAST — The Amazon fulfillment center in Principio Business Park originally projected to hire 700 people, but the company recently expanded its job openings to 1,000, according to recruiters manning the company’s tent at the Cecil County Fair. The growth occurs as the company expands its offerings. Last month, the e-commerce giant bought the Whole Foods company. Wages for fulfillment positions will range from $15 to $33 an hour, based on experience and performance. Chris Moyer, county director of economic development, and Bruce England, executive director of the Susquehanna Workforce Network, first confirmed the news at a Republican Club...

    Washington Post ^ | 7/19/17 | Peter Hermann
    It was a routine drug arrest in one of Baltimore’s more troubled neighborhoods. But it has become a flash point sparked by video from one of the officer’s body cameras. The public defender’s office looked at the video and contended it showed an officer planting evidence in a trash-strewn alley. Baltimore police countered with a more complicated explanation. They are investigating whether the officer had legitimately found drugs but, realizing he had forgotten to turn on his body camera, reconstructed his find. His body camera captured both him hiding the drugs and then finding them. Authorities said that would be...

    Every July 4th, citizens of the United States of America everywhere celebrate Independence Day, commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence and separation from British rule. The Continental Congress had actually voted to approve a resolution of independence on July 2nd and declare the Thirteen Colonies a new nation, the United States of America. However, it would not actually come until two days later that the Declaration of Independence was drawn up, revised by the Continental Congress, and officially signed. Were any signers of the Declaration of Independence Catholic? Of the 56 total signatories of the Declaration of Independence,...

Despite the pivotal importance of their sacrifice, the regimental dead are buried in a mass grave with only the most minimal markings, their story largely unknown to the modern public. “About 2010, I was in New York City, and the regimental commander I was with in the Battle of Fallujah, Colonel Willie Buell, is assigned there. He’s part of the Council on Foreign Relations. He just called me up and he said,...

    What the heck? On Wednesday, Baltimore County Police released surveillance video from a bizarre shootout on June 7, 2017, between police and 35-year-old Blaine Robert Erb that began, of all places, on a city bus! Police responded to the report of an armed robbery in progress. When arriving at the scene police learned the suspect fled onto the No 10 Maryland Transit Administration bus. When an officer stopped the bus near Logan Village Shopping Center the suspect opened fire on police. Police said four officers returned fire and Erb was killed. One officer and a bystander were wounded. The suspect...

    Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin (Md.) has introduced a bill that would create a congressional oversight commission that could declare the president incapacitated, leading to his removal from office under the Constitution's 25th Amendment. Twenty-four House Democrats are now backing the bill, including the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.), Yahoo News reported Friday. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), the former chair of the Democratic National Committee, is also co-sponsoring the legislation. The support from top Democrats for the bill comes despite House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and other Democratic leaders telling...
  • Two dozen Democrats get behind bill to lay foundation for removing Trump

    A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office. Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner. But the U.S. Constitution's 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president's cabinet, or 'such other body as Congress may by law provide,' to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to...
