  • Liberals Hate the Police

    11/12/2019 10:56:22 AM PST · by Kaslin · 26 replies ^ | November 12, 2019 | Derek Hunter
    There was a time when any candidate for any office with a background in law enforcement would proudly talk about their record and make it a cornerstone of their campaign. In the last few years, however, the Democratic Party has not only moved away from this former truth, but they’ve actually embraced an anti-police hatred that is dangerous and destructive. It started on a large scale in Ferguson, Missouri, with Michael Brown. This was the guy, who all the evidence showed was the aggressor who went after officer Darren Wilson, who was shot and killed while charging the officer for...

    The widow of late Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said on Monday that she will launch a campaign to win her husband’s seat as representative of Maryland’s 7th Congressional District. Maryland Democratic Party Chairwoman Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, 48, initially told The Baltimore Sun that she would formally announce her campaign on Tuesday, nearly a month after her husband died of cancer on Oct. 17 at age 68. Rep. Elijiah Cummings served nearly two decades in Congress and played an integral role in the early stages of the impeachment inquiry into President Trump as the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform...

    Bill O'Reilly expressed hope Thursday the Supreme Court will ultimately decide a 40-foot "Peace Cross" honoring World War I soldiers on public land in Maryland can stand, telling Newsmax TV "there's no doubt in my mind that it would." "What makes it really disturbing is that everybody acknowledges that the World War I memorial is basically directing people, Americans and others who are visiting, to honor those who lost their lives in that conflict," O'Reilly told "Newsmax Now" host John Bachman in an interview. "That's all."

    CNN contributor April Ryan and CNN media reporter Brian Stelter attacked black Republican Kimberly Klacik on Saturday, implying she drove Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) to his death last month after her video exposé on rat and trash infested Baltimore neighborhoods in his Congressional District provoked a national firestorm from President Trump.

    As he travels the state with top administrators from the Maryland Department of Transportation, Secretary Pete K. Rahn hears a frequent plea from business leaders, environmentalists and the public — expand bus and rail options, so travelers don’t have to be so dependent on their cars. Rahn has a ready response for transit advocates: Under Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R), Maryland is spending more on transit than at any other time. “We’re at 42 percent of the state [transportation] trust fund going to transit already, with 3 percent of the revenues coming from transit,” Rahn told a reporter in...

    Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) on Thursday rolled out a proposal for a “millionaires surtax,” amid a growing interest from Democrats in increasing taxes on the wealthy. “This is a bill designed to address two major problems of public policy: the lack of revenue, and inequality,” Beyer said on a call with reporters. “It’s a laser-focused solution that requires those who benefited the most from the economy to contribute in a way they simply haven’t been asked to before.” The lawmakers’ bill, which is being co-sponsored by Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), would create a 10-percentage...

    **SNIP** This comes after a year of resignations and scandal, all centered around the “Healthy Holly” business dealings involving former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh and several board members and executives. The issues began after a report that Pugh filed disclosure forms with incorrection information and did not disclose her position with the UMMS board in city ethics forms, after making a deal in 2011 where she received $500,000 selling her self-published book series to the UMMS. Pugh, who became mayor in 2016, was among a third of the board who had UMMS contracts with their businesses. She resigned from the...

    Finally made it to suburban Baltimore from NYC. My new hobby is unpacking boxes. Occasionally, I look up and seek a source for the local news. Is there a local facsimile of the NY Post, or must I pay for the dummocrapic Baltimore Sun for an online newspaper? I hate supporting dummocraps, even one red cent. Thanks, fellow FReepers. P.S., please spare me any Baltimore-bashing comments. I have some very valid personal reasons to have moved here. And it sure beats the HECK out of NYC, which deteriorates more and more every single day.

    About 15 years ago, I started noticing a change in the world around me. It started out very subtly: a movie with an obvious liberal slant – the media, schools, government and even churches pushing social justice themes whenever they could slip them in without ruffling too many feathers. But this insidious march toward an unremitting takeover of our social fabric and American culture was never obstructed or even mildly opposed. As with most things in life, the reasons for the success of this situation were multi-faceted. Conservatives by nature are respectful of individuality and others’ opinions. We are the...

    The U.S. Supreme Court is being asked to review a case against Maryland's requirement that applicants for concealed-carry permits provide "good and substantial reasons" to fulfill their request. Gun-rights groups that have filed a brief in the case, contending the law is unconstitutional, say it could have widespread impact. Advertisement - story continues below The court, said Second Amendment Foundation founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, "could define the parameters of bearing arms outside the home, and that will impact restrictive laws in several states where carry permits or licenses are strictly regulated, which translates to nearly impossible...

    A photo has emerged of abortionist LeRoy Carhart and his staff celebrating his 78th birthday in his abortion facility. Carhart’s choice of desk placards is disturbing. The placard reads, “Even on my Worst Days, I’m Killing It.” Carhart, who does abortions in all three trimesters, openly admitted in a recent interview with the BBC that he kills “babies.” The interview aired on July 22, 2019. Interviewer Hilary Andersson appeared visibly shocked by his admission: Carhart: The baby has no input in this, as far as I’m concerned. Hilary Andersson: But it’s interesting that you use the word baby because a...

    A Maryland police department has been banned from displaying a 'thin blue line' flag after it as dubbed 'divisive' of a community, some of which argues it was 'dismissive of the Black Lives Matter movement. On Wednesday, cops shared their intention to display the gift, with a tweet that included a picture of three cops, who appear to be white, accepting the flag from a resident and his son. 'Thank you to resident James Shelton, who presented Montgomery County 5th District officers with a wooden American Flag that he had made in recognition of National First Responders Day,' the picture...

    CUMBERLAND — Kenneth Lloyd wants to buy the Negro Mountain signs, which disappeared from Garrett County roads earlier this year, and install them in his front yard. Negro Mountain occupies a 30-mile stretch of the Alleghenies from Deep Creek Lake north to the Casselman River in Pennsylvania. The ridge in Garrett County reaches 3,075 feet at its peak, and in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, marks the highest point in the state. The Maryland Department of Transportation State Highway Administration earlier this year removed four Negro Mountain signs — two from Interstate 68 and two from U.S. Alternate Route 40. “I’m highly...

    Things are looking bleak for the Kamala Harris campaign. On Wednesday, Politico reported that “Harris is dramatically restructuring her campaign by redeploying staffers to Iowa and laying off dozens of aides at her Baltimore headquarters, . . . as she struggles to resuscitate her beleaguered presidential bid.” Harris announced she was “moving” to Iowa back in September, but the California senator is now in a dead heat for fifth place in the state, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls. At 2.7 percent, she’s tied with Tom Steyer, Amy Klobuchar, and Andrew Yang, and just a hair ahead of Hawaii...

    UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- A Maryland man who says security guards beat him at a Six Flags America park on Father's Day in 2018 was awarded $800,000 by a jury on Friday. Nicholaus Mims and his family were visiting a water park area at Six Flags America in Bowie when the father took off his shirt and noticed one of his children was missing, The Daily Record reported , citing the complaint filed last year in Prince George's County Circuit Court. He found his son, but security guards told him he needed to put on a shirt.

    Two Democratic lawmakers told a liberal Jewish conference on Monday they support the inclusion in the 2020 party platform of language on Israeli “occupation” of territories claimed by the Palestinians. One of them also argued that their party has not shifted on the Israeli-Palestinian issue; rather the Republicans have veered away from what he suggested used to be the “mainstream” position. Speaking at the J Street national conference gala dinner in Washington, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) expressed strong support for the idea – now being actively championed by J Street – of inserting opposition to “occupation” in the platform. “I...

    House Democratic leaders are walking back a planned vote Thursday that would officially endorse impeachment proceedings and say that the resolution would merely address the process of holding public hearings on the matter. “This is not an impeachment resolution,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters Tuesday morning. “I don’t know what an impeachment resolution is.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters Monday that the planned vote was “not an impeachment resolution.” Earlier in the day, Pelosi announced the House would vote on a resolution that “affirms the ongoing, existing investigation,” and “establishes the procedure for hearings that are open...

    A man seen in a viral video declining to shake Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) hand at the late Rep. Elijah Cummings's (D-Md.) funeral said the snub wasn’t based on his loyalty to Cummings as a friend. The man, identified as Bobby Rankin, told The Washington Post on Monday he blamed McConnell for denying veterans’ benefits to his brother before he died last October from cancer after being exposed to contaminated water while serving in the Marines. “When I saw Mitch McConnell, all I saw was my brother’s face,” Rankin told the Post. In a 16-second clip, Rankin, one...

    With the dishonorable Elijah Cummings dead, it probably doesn’t come as a galloping shock that his equally dishonorable trophy wife, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, plans to run for his Congressional seat. It’s stunning how members of Congress and their families treat a Congressional seat as if it’s some kind of peerage. Cummings was a member of the House of Representatives, not the House of Lords. And it is a Congressional seat, not a Barony. But for some reason, his ethically-challenged wife has the hubris to think that Cummings’ Congressional seat should be passed on to her as his surviving spouse. She...
  • What Conservative Justice Ruled with Liberals Not To Hear Maryland High School vs Caleigh Wood case?

    Vanity, Vanity, Vanity, but inquiring minds need to know. Which of the 4 conservative justices voted not to hear the case involving the issue of Maryland High School student Caleigh Wood, who refused to take part in a school assignment to write the Islamic conversion prayer. My guess it was Roberts, but you never know, and regardless of how I try I cannot find out which Justice it was. Anyone know which Supreme Court justice, or more, decided to vote with the Godless liberals not to hear the case?
