    Full title: Maryland Implies Judicial Watch Has Ties to Russian Agents in Shameful Effort to Hide Voter Rolls Mess Maryland officials have resorted to desperate measures to avoid giving Judicial Watch voter registration records—as required by federal law—by suggesting Judicial Watch is connected to Russian government agents. The absurd implication was made in a federal court document involving a lawsuit filed last summer as part of a national Election Integrity Project to clean up voter rolls. Maryland is one of 11 states with more registered voters than citizens of voting age, according to U.S. Census Bureau data examined as part...
  • Only 32 Baltimore Police officers pass latest sergeant exam

    10/11/2018 2:57:05 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 51 replies
    Only 32 of the 273 officers who took the test passed, according to the city’s Department of Human Resources, which oversees the exam. The passing rate of 11.7 percent is far lower than the last three sergeant exams, which have been given every two years. In 2016, 176 of the 290 officers who took the exam passed, for a rate of 60.7 percent. In 2014, 171 of 330 officers passed, for a rate of 51.8 percent. And in 2012, 218 of the 412 officers passed, for a rate of 52.9 percent.

    Bump [Philip Bump, WaPo] quotes Ford as telling the Senate Judiciary Committee, “I did see Mark Judge once at the Potomac Village Safeway after the time of the attack, and it would be helpful with anyone’s resources if – to figure out when he worked there if people are wanting more details from me about when the attack occurred.” Now Bump announces his Eureka moment. He can pinpoint Ford’s timeline thanks to Mark Judge himself. Bump quotes from Judge’s 1997 book “Wasted.” Judge wrote, “It was the summer before senior year, and by now, even though I wasn’t drinking every...

    The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled that the need for the Second Amendment is “most acute” in the home, where “self, family and property” must be protected. But now Maryland gun regulators are insisting that anyone who wants to defend his home with a firearm must have a month of special training. A group called Maryland Shall Issue Inc. has filed a lawsuit contending the training requirement violates the Second Amendment. Arguing a “right delayed is a right denied,” Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation and chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear...

    As hinted at days earlier here at D.C. Whispers, the Senate Judiciary Committee is now preparing to launch a full investigation into the machinations of Christine Blasey Ford’s legal team and the office of Senator Diane Feinstein based upon “…recently uncovered information.” It appears that FBI supplemental investigation into Judge (Justice) Brett Kavanaugh that Senator Feinstein demanded has backfired on her – BIG TIME.

    In a letter sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday, a group of Georgetown Prep alumni confirmed Brett Kavanaugh’s explanation of the term “Devil’s Triangle,” which he was asked about by the committee after it surfaced in his yearbook. The four alumni — DeLancey Davis, Bernard McCarthy Jr., Paul Murray, and Matthew Quinn — clarified that the term “devil’s triangle” refers not to a sexual act, as has been alleged by Kavanaugh’s detractors, but rather to a drinking game they played in high school. “‘Devil’s Triangle’ was a drinking game we came up with in high school. It was a...

    The Washington Post’s continued labeling of blogger Jennifer Rubin as a “conservative” in the years since she has repeatedly rejected conservative ideas and principles is an example of why the American people are unable to trust the media, more than three dozen top conservative leaders say.“In truth, it is nearly impossible to discern any conservatism in Rubin’s contemporary writing,” the leaders said in an October 3 letter to the Washington Post editorial board. Citing the rejection of her previous positions on climate change, gun control, Middle East foreign policy, tax cuts, immigration, and abortion, the group said the notion that...
  • Kavanaugh’s 1983 Letter Offers Inside Look at High School Clique

    The beachfront property was rented, the guests were invited and an ever-organized Brett M. Kavanaugh had some advice for the seven Georgetown Preparatory School classmates who would be joining him for the weeklong escapade. In a 1983 letter, a copy of which was reviewed by The New York Times, the young Judge Kavanaugh warned his friends of the danger of eviction from an Ocean City, Md., condo. In a neatly written postscript, he added: Whoever arrived first at the condo should “warn the neighbors that we’re loud, obnoxious drunks with prolific pukers among us. Advise them to go about 30...

    ...But some seem to welcome a slide in that direction. “Tell me again why we shouldn’t confront Republicans where they eat, where they sleep, and where they work until they stop being complicit in the destruction of our democracy,” tweeted Ian Millhiser, justice editor at ThinkProgress. “Because it is both wrong & supremely dangerous,” replied Georgetown Law professor Randy Barnett. “When one side denies the legitimacy of good faith disagreement over policy — as well as over constitutional principle — the other side will eventually reciprocate. Neither a constitutional republic nor a democracy can survive that.” Princeton’s much-admired political theorist...

    Christine Blasey lived in Potomac, Maryland in 1985. Christine was arrested in a traffic stop and ticketd on June 14, 1985 (Friday) in Catawba County North Carlina. She was charged with a traffic misdemeanor – no big deal. It was disposed on Sept 11, 1985. But there’s more. There were two other cases on June 17, 1985 (Monday). They were also in Catawba County on a different day and are under case type – CRIMINAL. This might be the same case, but two different records were given. The interesting thing about these two cases against Christine Blasey Ford is that...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Monday accused NBC of being a "co-conspirator" in an attempt to bring down Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, criticizing the network for its coverage of assault accusations against Kavanaugh. "They’ve been a co-conspirator in the destruction of Kavanaugh from my point of view," Graham said during an appearance on Fox News's "Hannity." Graham attacked NBC for reporting last week that the Senate Judiciary Committee had questioned Kavanaugh about a fourth assault accusation. Senate investigators asked Kavanaugh about an anonymous complaint alleging that he physically assaulted a woman in 1998. The complaint was originally sent to...

    Seven people were killed and four others injured in nine shootings over the weekend in Baltimore, according to local reports, increasing the total of those killed in the city to 17 in the past week. The latest shootings took place across the city on Saturday and Sunday, with victims ranging in age from 22 to 46, The Baltimore Sun reported, adding that the killings brought the number of homicides this year in Baltimore to 231. Though September has been exceptionally violent, Baltimore is reportedly still on track to see fewer shooting deaths than it did in 2017. A total of...

    One of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s accusers has already been found to be a liar and now faces potential criminal prosecution and a potential 10-year prison sentence, thanks to actions taken Saturday by Senate Committee Judiciary chairman Chuck Grassley. Last Monday an unnamed male accuser contacted Democrat Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse to accuse Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge of having sexually assaulted a “close acquaintance” 33 years ago on a boat in Newport, Rhode Island. Instead of performing any due diligence, Whitehouse promptly forwarded the allegations to his fellow members on the Senate Judiciary Committee, who subsequently broached the...

    Democrats plan at Thursday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to use the high school yearbooks of embattled Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which they say imply he and his prep school pals regularly got drunk and boasted of sexual conquests, to discredit what they call his “choir boy defense” against sex-assault charges leveled by Christine Blasey Ford. But Ford, whose story suffers from significant gaps in her memory, wasn’t exactly a choir girl. In fact, congressional sources say her own yearbooks, among other things, present a potential issue for her and her character, and Republicans are prepared to cite them in...

    In Maryland, 11 state lawmakers have asked Montgomery County law enforcement officials to investigate the 36-year-old sexual assault allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh that have gripped the nation. Eleven state delegates from Montgomery County are calling on local police and prosecutors to investigate allegations that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed one or more sexual assaults while a high school student at Georgetown Prep in the 1980s. In a letter addressed Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger, State's Attorney John McCarthy and lawyers Debra Katz and Michael Avenatti, who represent women accusing Kavanaugh of crimes, the lawmakers asked local...

    To date, there have been no criminal reports filed with the Montgomery County Department of Police that would lead to the initiation of any criminal investigation related to Judge Kavanaugh. Furthermore, the law at the time the offense occurred is the law must be applied to any charges that might be brought. For example, in 1982, assault and attempted rape were both misdemeanors and subject to a one year statue of limitations.
