    Well, Trump really stirred up a rat's nest this time and was immediately condemned by all the usual suspects as a 'racist.' But all of his comments regarding Baltimore and the corrupt democrats' complete and utter disregard for the poor people forced to live in poverty and squalor are turning out to be TRUTH. Nothing makes the rats and vermin scurry more than when the light of truth shines forth. The corrupt democrats have been playing the minorities and poor for decades. We've spent untold trillions on the so-called 'War on Poverty' over the last 50 years, and for what?...

    Here is video of Baltimore’s own Mayor Catherine Pugh last year essentially saying what President Trump said – that Baltimore is overrun with rats! This is Elijah Cummings District. Trump is right. . . . . "Oh, you can smell the rats!" "Oh my God, you can smell the dead animals."

    Twitter user ^ | 7/28/19
    Moronic liberal "friend" from college sent me a Twitter about a Twitter user comparing Baltimore to Rep. Jim Jordan's (R-OH) district. The Twitter (linked) shows photographs of tents and trash in Jordan's district, comprised of Lima, Northwest Columbus and a few other towns. After a quick search of the demographics and the city government in Jordan's district, I found out that 89% of the population is White, while 5.5& is Black. I also found out that Lima and Columbus are Democrat-run cities with Democrat Mayors. I don't have Twitter, so can someone disseminate this information to this Twitter A**hole? Thanks!

    Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump was hit with new accusations of racism Saturday after he attacked a prominent African-American lawmaker and branded the majority black city of Baltimore an "infested mess." Trump's outburst came in a series of sharply worded tweets aimed at Democratic Representative Elijah Cummings -- a high-profile critic of Trump's administration whose district covers much of Baltimore. "Cumming (sic) District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess," the president wrote, calling it "the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States." "No human being would want to live there," he said --...

    A “#WeAreBaltimore” hashtag surged to the top of Twitter’s trending items of Saturday in response to President Trump's comments attacking Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) as a “brutal bully” and his majority-black Baltimore district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” As of Saturday night, the hashtag was used over 17,700 times. The viral item came off the heels of a series of tweets Trump shared on Saturday, in which he railed against the congressman, who also chairs the House Oversight Committee, and his district, which includes downtown Baltimore. “Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming...

    BALTIMORE, MD – Charm City is once again among America's "Rattiest Cities," according to a new report from pest control company Orkin, although it has shown progress in each of the past two years. Baltimore comes in at No. 9 on the company's 2018 rankings released Monday. This is the fourth year that Orkin has compiled the rankings, which are based on the number of rodent treatments the company performed from Sept. 15, 2017 to Sept. 15, 2018. It includes both residential and commercial treatments. Baltimore dropped one slot from last year, when it was ranked eighth; two years ago...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump lashed out at a leading African-American congressman on Saturday, calling him “a brutal bully” who represents a Baltimore-based district that has become a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” where “no human being would want to live.” Mr. Trump’s attack on Representative Elijah E. Cummings, a Democrat from Maryland and leading critic of the president, parroted a segment that aired earlier in the morning on “Fox & Friends.” The president suggested that the congressman was a hypocrite for criticizing conditions in migrant detention centers at the southwestern border when his own district is blighted. Mr. Trump...

    Dr. Drew Pinsky, a California-based physician who now hosts a talk radio show, correctly predicted the current typhus outbreak in Los Angeles about 18 months ago. Now he is sounding the alarm about a potential outbreak of the bubonic plague in the Los Angeles area, saying that unless conditions change quickly and drastically, Southern California will be dealing with a horrific epidemic. The last outbreak of the bubonic plague, ironically, was in the 1920’s in Los Angeles. Yersinia pestis, the organism that causes the plague, is endemic to the valleys Southern California and comes down through the foothills on squirrels...

    Washington (CNN)A federal judge Friday paused congressional Democrats' subpoenas of Trump Organization financial records, 10 days before the records were due in a lawsuit over whether President Donald Trump is violating the Constitution. The delay is a win for Trump, even if temporary. He's attempting -- and so far has succeeded -- to hold off multiple subpoenas from the Democrats that could divulge secrets about his company and assets. Judge Emmet Sullivan made the decision Friday shortly after the appeals court above him said it wanted to hear the emoluments case. The case had been progressing, with the Democrats sending...

    An ever-growing number of rodents in California -- particularly in Los Angeles -- is being fueled by a spiking homeless population and restrictions on rodenticides that are risking a public health crisis, according to a study released Tuesday. The report by political action committee Reform California cites recent rodent-related events over the past six months, including an employee at the Los Angeles Police Department contracting Typhus and a rat falling from the ceiling of a Buffalo Wild Wings onto the menu of a patron, as proof of an "undeniable problem" in the Golden State.

    “California is being overrun by rodents – and without immediate emergency action by state and local government, we face significant economic costs and risk a public health crisis,” said Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, at a news conference Tuesday at City Hall in downtown Los Angeles. DeMaio highlighted the findings of the group’s new report which cited an increase in the state’s homeless population, along with elimination of the most effective pest control tools, as “significant” factors on the ongoing crisis. The study surveyed nearly two dozen private pest control companies that operate throughout California and found all of...

    A U.S. government agency is proposing the deployment of 1.5 tons of rat poison to limit the spread of an invasive rodent problem in the Farallon Islands, located 30 miles off the coast of San Francisco. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) was spearheading the proposal, which it claimed would eradicate tens of thousands of house mice, an invasive species harming the native ecosystem. FWS said the mice have attracted burrowing owls that have fed on the rodent population, insects and storm-petrels, a rare type of bird. The mice also have helped spread an invasive plant species, experts said....

    Minnesota Attorney General and former Democratic National Committee Deputy Chair Keith Ellison had some strong words of advice for 2020 candidates on Tuesday: When it comes to paying attention to voters, be more like Donald Trump and less like Hillary Clinton. Speaking to Newsweek at an event hosted by The Concordia Forum in participation with Democrats Abroad in London, U.K., Ellison, who officially endorsed Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for president last month, said that if 2020 candidates want to beat Trump, they will have to remember that the most important thing they can give voters "is your attention."

    The “by a show of hands” challenge has a controversial past in American presidential debates. Republicans chafed and objected in 2007. Trump stood alone in 2016. And on Wednesday at the NBC Democratic Debate, the first primary debate of the 2020 season, the show of hands-on health care got big applause from the crowd, but only two hands up on stage. **SNIP** “Who here would abolish their private health insurance in favor of a government-run plan, just a show of hands,” said Holt. Only Warren and Mayor Bill de Blasio raised their hands, as the crowd timidly at first and...
