    Montgomery County Public Schools granted a $191,000 salary to a principal with 18 counts of sexual assault, harassment, and bullying reported against him. Joel Beidleman was employed with the Maryland district for years as principal of Farquhar Middle School, and was promoted in June to run Paint Branch High School in Burtonsville. MCPS announced on Friday that Beidleman would take an “extended leave,” after a bombshell report from the Washington Post highlighted the former administrator’s years of alleged harassment. Many sources interviewed for the Post’s article agreed to publicize Beidleman’s purported misconduct because of his new position. Educators who used...
  • Muslim activist gives powerful speech against forced LGBTQ curriculum: 'Our people are not backward' 'Members of this school board have mocked our values and have said we cannot be allowed to opt our children out'

    Muslim parents delivered passionate speeches against elementary schoolchildren in Maryland's Montgomery County Public Schools being forced to learn LGBTQ sexuality curriculum against parents' wishes at a Tuesday school board meeting. Parents, students and activists have taken issue over the past few weeks with the school district removing an opt-out option for LGBTQ sexuality curriculum. "We [as Muslims] reject the implication that acting on our faith's principles is a willful means of harming others. In fact, we see it as a point of bigotry that some only care for our community and will only protect our rights when we assimilate to...

    On Sunday, Democrat Kristin Mink, a member of the Montgomery County Council for District 5 in Maryland, apologized for equating Muslims who opposed LGBTQ-based curriculum to white supremacists. Mink had criticized members of the Muslim community for their opposition to a new policy that prevents parents from opting their children out of lessons focused on LGBTQ topics. “This issue has unfortunately put — does put… some Muslim families on the same side of an issue as white supremacists and outright bigots,” Mink had said. “I would not put you in the same category as those folks, although, you know, it’s...

    The U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania got a rocky start on all fronts — Democrat primary winner and current PA Lt. Governor John Fetterman was hospitalized following a stroke and started the final stretch of his midterm race in the hospital and at home recovering. On the GOP side, a recount ushered in uncertainty that eventually saw Mehmet Oz prevail following a messy primary that left him a bit wounded, politically. But now, as both campaigns hit their stride with around 90 days until November's general election, Fetterman is shifting further to the left and is diving headlong into an...

Josh has integrity and always works to bring people together. We may not always agree on every policy position, but that is to be expected. His focus on improving our economy,...

    Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones provided more details on CNN about the man who is accused of attempting to carry out an assassination attempt on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Wade that was revealed to the general public after a draft opinion for an upcoming ruling was leaked in May. He was also angry at another case that could be a big win for gun rights. Jones said the Roske took a taxi to the neighborhood where Kavanaugh lives with his...

    The Maryland General Assembly convened on December 6 for a special session. The main focus of the special session is the redistricting process that states must complete every decade after the census. However, in addition to redistricting, the legislature voted to override Governor Larry Hogan’s (R) veto of a bill that bans immigration detention and makes Maryland a sanctuary state, as well as one that restricts sharing information with immigration authorities. House Bill (HB) 16, the so-called “Dignity Not Detention Act,” sponsored by Delegate Vaughn Stewart (D-Montgomery County) was initially solely a ban on immigration detention contracts. However, on the...

    Prosecutors asked the US Supreme Court to review the ruling that overturned Bill Cosby’s conviction, arguing in a petition Monday that a decision announced in a press release does not give a defendant lifetime immunity. Prosecutors said the ruling could set a dangerous precedent if convictions are overturned over dubious closed-door deals. They have also complained that the chief judge of the state’s high court appeared to misstate key facts of the case when he discussed the court ruling that overturned Cosby’s conviction in a television interview. “This decision as it stands will have far-reaching negative consequences beyond Montgomery County...

Trump is making it clear that “If Pennsylvania Senate leadership doesn’t act, there is no way they will ever get re-elected!” [National File] As Trump and his supporters gear up for election transparency in...

    Maryland lawmakers advanced a bill Monday that would prohibit stores from providing plastic bags to customers starting July 2022. An iteration of this legislation passed the House and was voted out of the Senate Finance Committee last year, but it did not reach the Senate floor due to the abbreviated legislative session. With an amendment from Del. Brian Crosby (D-St. Mary’s) that would allow orchard farmers to provide plastic bags to customers for its fruits and vegetables, the Plastic Bag Reduction Act, sponsored by Del. Brooke Lierman (D-Baltimore City) and Sen. Malcom Augustine (D-Prince George’s), moved out of the House...

    Harris County Commissioners approved a restructuring of how county toll road revenue can be used, which is concerning some people in northwest Harris County about how road projects will be funded. The measure approved creates a corporation to oversee duties performed by the Harris County Toll Road Authority. According to HCTRA, this measure would also change the grip the state has on where toll revenue can be spent by the county. A memo from Peter Key, HCTRA’s interim executive director, said HCTRA currently can only provide the issuance of revenue bonds for tolled infrastructure, and not non-toll transportation infrastructure challenges....

    A federal judge in Pennsylvania on Wednesday weighed arguments by Republicans seeking to stop a suburban Philadelphia county from counting mail-in and absentee ballots that voters had been permitted to correct. U.S. District Judge Timothy Savage in Philadelphia appeared skeptical of arguments by the plaintiffs’ lawyer, which lawyers for Montgomery County election officials and the Democratic National Committee said could disenfranchise voters. The Pennsylvania lawsuit had been filed by Kathy Barnette, a conservative political commentator projected to lose her race for a House seat in the state’s 4th Congressional district, and Clay Breece, chairman of the Republican Committee in Berks...

    Mail-in ballots are expected to hit a record level in this election. The president insists that they can’t be trusted. But many state officials say otherwise. President Trump two weeks ago said his concerns about mail-in voting are being borne out by New York officials sending botched ballots to nearly 100,000 Brooklyn residents. For months, Trump has claimed widespread mail-in voting amid the COVID-19 pandemic opens the door to fraud and is likely to delay the Nov. 3 results. Democrats generally say mail-in voting is proven to be reliable and secure. New York is not among the nine states —...
