    The years-long saga of former Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's downfall and criminal processing may finally be at a close. This week, she went to court to learn her fate after multiple convictions for fraud and perjury. The prosecution had been seeking a two-year prison sentence, while Mosby's attorneys had pleaded for probation. As so often happens in these cases, the judge decided to split the baby and handed down a sentence of one year of home detention followed by three years of supervised release. She was also ordered to forfeit her condominium in Florida that she and her husband...

    Democratic Senate candidate Angela Alsobrooks took aim Wednesday at her Republican opponent, former Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, over his position on abortion. Alsobrooks spoke at an abortion rights rally, where she criticized Hogan's statements that abortion should be legal up to 26 weeks of pregnancy, the standard set by the U.S. Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade. That decision was overturned in 2022, and now states can make their own laws regulating abortion, which has galvanized Democrats nationwide, who are campaigning to protect abortion access as Republicans seek to limit or ban the procedure. "I don't believe that...

  • Did terrorists just do a dry run at a Marine base? Team Biden needs to fill the nation in

    Did terrorists just scout out a US Marine base? Amazingly, Americans have no idea one way or the other — despite a troubling incident this month suggesting that’s exactly what happened. In fact, it took nearly two weeks for top brass at Marine Corps Base Quantico in Virginia just to alert its own rank-and-file about an attempt by two Jordanians to drive their box truck onto the base before being blocked by guards. That’s outrageous enough, yet the story still remains far from clear. Indeed, a mountain of questions need answers.

    The Hill ^ | 5/14/24
    House Democrats are probing President Trump’s request for $1 billion in campaign cash from major oil companies. Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) penned a letter to CEOs of eight energy companies and an oil lobbying group that reportedly attended a dinner at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort with the former president last month. Outlets, including The Hill, reported that at the dinner, Trump asked the industry to raise $1 billion to support his presidential campaign. The Washington Post, which shared the story first, reported that getting him the funds would be a “deal,” because of all the money the industry would save in...

    Juan Dominguez, a West Point graduate and Gulf War veteran, is unhappy about the VoteVets political action committee’s decision to endorse former U.S. Capitol Police Officer Harry Dunn. Unlike Dominguez and at least two other candidates in the crowded Democratic primary race for Maryland’s 3rd Congressional District, Dunn is not a military veteran. VoteVets describes itself as a progressive political action committee that “endorses veterans and national security professionals” who champion “everyday issues that affect the lives of those who served, their families, and the country.” In a phone interview with Blaze Media, Dominguez shared his frustrations with VoteVets’ endorsement...

    Rep. David Trone (D-MD) came under fire from fellow Democrats once again, this time for an ad that sparked outrage among black voters. Trone’s campaign aired an attack ad against his Senate primary rival, Prince George’s County Executive Angela Alsobrooks, last week, during which a black supporter argued that the “U.S. Senate is not a place for training wheels,” taking aim at her record. The remarks were met with outrage from some black women, who claimed it was racist and misogynistic, Axios reported. In a letter signed by 650 black women, among them former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Donna Brazile,...

    NASA Administrator Bill Nelson is being mocked for suggesting the far side of the moon is always “dark” and can’t explain why China is interested in exploring that part of the moon. “What do you think the Chinese are trying to get at, at the back side of the moon?” Rep. David Trone (D-MD) asked Nelson at a congressional hearing last week. “They are going to have a lander on the far side of the moon, which is the side which is always in dark. Uh, we’re not planning to go there,” he said.

    The January 6th Committee has faced criticism about a lack of transparency, its highly partisan composition, and its failure to investigate certain elements of the unrest that happened at the January 6th ‘Stop the Steal’ rally. The committee, made up of Democrats and two Republicans who voted to impeach President Trump, had its deadline bumped up to release its final report as Republicans are set to take over the House in January and will likely disband the committee. As the committee prepares to release its report, which could result in them recommending Trump for criminal prosecution by the Department of...

    The Los Angeles Times editorial board has endorsed Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) in the highly competitive race to be California’s next senator. With the growing possibility of Trump securing the GOP presidential nomination, the Times board argued that Schiff is needed in the Senate now more than ever. “Given the increasingly authoritarian statements from Donald Trump, the possibility he could return to the White House and the Republican Party’s lockstep loyalty to him, the Senate needs Schiff, a battle-tested and thoughtful leader who has demonstrated he can rise to the moment,” they wrote. Schiff’s appointment to those critical roles shows...

    Journalist Paul Sperry is not going quietly into the night — as we reported, he’s been calling out the effort by Rep. Adam Schiff’s office to silence him, to get him suspended from Twitter as well as to shut down his reporting about things that Schiff didn’t want to be exposed. In articles for RealClearInvestigations, I outed his anonymous “whistleblower” from the first impeachment of President Trump. It was Eric Ciaramella, a Democrat who had worked in the Trump White House as an Obama holdover. I also exposed Ciaramella’s prior relationship with one of Schiff’s top staffers on the impeachment...

    Embattled Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., found himself in the center of a political storm as documents recently surfaced, revealing that he has maintained a residence in Maryland for more than a decade while representing California’s 21st district. Mortgage records and financial disclosures obtained by CNN indicated that Schiff claimed a 3,420-square-foot property in Maryland as his primary residence, alongside a smaller 650-square-foot condo in Burbank, California. The documents, however, also uncovered his alleged utilization of the California address to mitigate a substantial $7,000 tax bill. The timing of this bombshell comes as Schiff seeks the vacant U.S. Senate seat in...

    A Maryland high school teacher was arrested after he allegedly used artificial intelligence to create phony audio, planting racist and antisemitic words into the voice of his boss, authorities said Thursday. Dazhon Darien, a physical education teacher and the athletic director at Pikesville High School, was accused of falsifying the voice of principal Eric Eiswert in January, authorities said. "We now have conclusive evidence that the recording was not authentic," Baltimore County Police Chief Robert McCullough told reporters in Towson. "It’s been determined the recording was generated through the use of artificial intelligence technology." Darien was charged with disrupting school...

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A black Baltimore high school athletics director has been charged with using AI to generate a recording of the school's white principal going on a racist rant. Dazhon Darien, 31, previously worked as the athletic director at Pikesville High School - but was the target of a probe into the mishandling of school funds. In an act of retaliation, Darien allegedly generated a fake audio recording of the school's principal, Eric Eiswert, 'spewing racial and anti-Semitic insults about staff and students.' The recording, posted to an Instagram account, allegedly captures Pikesville High School principal Eric Eiswert making racially charged...

    Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) daughter criticized Democrat judges for giving out harsh sentences to January 6 defendants. Alexandra Pelosi was caught slamming the “liberal” judges who are “out for blood” as they hand out lengthy prison sentences while other J6 protestors get hit with just a fine or probation. “I think I learned in kindergarten that justice is supposed to be fair. A judge is supposed to be the same, and they’re not supposed to be political,” Alexandra said. “And now it’s like one judge you get really makes a difference because some judges are giving probation and...

This bold move by house Democrats basically erases the separation of powers in United...

    An armed U.S. Secret Service agent assigned to Vice President Kamala Harris‘s protective detail fought unarmed with other detail agents on Monday morning. The incident occurred at the Washington, D.C.-area Andrews Air Force Base, before Harris arrived, and after the agent suffered what the Secret Service has characterized as a medical incident. The Washington Examiner is aware of the agent’s name and specific detail responsibilities but is withholding those details for privacy reasons. The Washington Examiner understands that the agent became aggressive with other agents. When the special agent in charge and a detail shift supervisor attempted to calm the...
