Sharpton calls for protests against Sessions

Al Sharpton called for an occupation of senators' offices to call on them to block Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Session from becoming President-elect Trump's attorney general, chanting "We will not be Trumped."

Sharpton, speaking at a march in Washington organized by his National Action Network, called on his supporters to take action to stymie Trump's agenda.

"We've come not to appeal to Donald trump, because he's made it clear what his policies are and what his nominations are," he said. "We come to say to the Democrats in the Senate and in the House, and to the moderate Republicans, to get some backbone and get some guts."

"We didn't send you down here to be weak-kneed and to get in the room and try and make friends. We sent you down here to stand up."

EPA Says it Can't Pay Economic Damages From Mine Spill

The Environmental Protection Agency announced Friday it will not repay claims totaling more than $1.2 billion for economic damages from a mine waste spill the agency accidentally triggered in Colorado, saying the law prohibits it.

The EPA said the claims could be refiled in federal court, or Congress could authorize payments.

But attorneys for the EPA and the Justice Department concluded the EPA is barred from paying the claims because of sovereign immunity, which prohibits most lawsuits against the government.

"The agency worked hard to find a way in which it could pay individuals for damages due to the incident, but unfortunately, our hands are tied," EPA spokeswoman Nancy Grantham said.

Records show timesheet falsifications at NSA

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The National Security Agency’s internal watchdog has found more than 100 cases in five years in which civilian employees and contractors falsely claimed to have been at work.

Details about the cases were released in response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Baltimore Sun (http://bsun.md/2iuZO9g ). An NSA spokesman says the incidents cost the agency almost $3.5 million, though about 80 percent of the money lost to the fraud has been recovered.

Investigators in the agency’s inspector general’s office substantiated allegations in 44 “civilian time and attendance cases” and 68 “contractor labor mischarging cases,” according to the records.

Top Bishop: Europe Will Soon Be Muslim Because of Our Stupidity

Everyone in Italy and the rest of Europe will “soon be Muslim” because of the country’s “stupidity”, a prominent Italian archbishop has said.

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.

“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.”

“We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.

“I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?”

Latinos Set to Toast Tequila to Trump

A group of patriots, who happen to be Hispanic, will gather to celebrate the inauguration of President-elect Donald J. Trump.

It will be the kind of moment that runs counter to the narratives of the political and the media elite, but to those of us in the room, our celebration makes perfect sense.

If news of our inauguration party surprises you, recall that 29 percent of the Hispanic vote went to Trump. Remember, too, that Latinos are feeling the sharp pain of economic adversity that Trump has convincingly promised to change.

Remember also that one of the great economic beacons of hope for Hispanic Americans is small-business ownership, which is in precipitous decline in this country. Most traditional politicians have done nothing but pay lip service to small-business growth for a generation or more.

Finally, recall that Hispanic parents, like all American parents, want to be empowered to make the choice of sending their children to the best schools possible.

Soros’ Son Quietly Steps Up as Major Liberal Donor

Alexander Soros, the son of liberal billionaire George Soros who acts as the managing partner for Soros Brothers Investments, has quietly emerged as a major donor to Democratic campaigns and causes.

Alexander has remained relatively unknown in the world of political giving thanks to his father garnering a bulk of the family’s attention. However, Alexander has stepped up his political contributions even as his father continued to pour tens of millions into the coffers of Democratic campaigns and political action committees.

Alexander gave more than $4.5 million to Democratic campaign committees and political action committees in 2016, according to campaign finance records. The millions in donations from Alexander throughout the past election cycle is a sharp increase from years past.

The Senate Majority PAC, the political action committee of former Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.), was the biggest recipient of cash from Soros’ son. Between August and November 2016, Alexander cut four checks to Reid’s leadership PAC totaling $3.5 million.

Md. school district fires employee after sassy tweet

WASHINGTON — Frederick County Public Schools has fired an employee over her reply to a student’s Jan. 5 tweet to “close school tammarrow PLEASE.”

Katie Nash told the The Frederick News-Post, that she was terminated from her $44,000-a-year job as web experience coordinator after replying, “But then how would you learn how to spell ‘tomorrow?’ :)”.

The clever reply got quite a bit of attention on Twitter before it was deleted. It even inspired the hashtags “#KatiefromFCPS” and — after Twitter feared she was no longer running the account — “#FreeKatie.”

But while even the recipient of Nash’s reply thought the tweet was in good fun, the district apparently wasn’t comfortable with her approach and dismissed her Friday.

The Inauguration War

The Left prepares its counter-attack on American democracy.

According to Gallup, the average presidential honeymoon lasts seven months. This is a window when the losing party declares a partisan peace, allows the incoming president to pick his cabinet and launch the agenda his victory mandates. Presidential honeymoons are not only a venerable American tradition they are one of democracy’s pillars. For generations they have been ceremonial supports for the peaceful transition of power, and the peaceful resolution of partisan conflicts.

Not this election year. There will be no honeymoon. This year even before Trump arrives in the Oval Office, the opposition cry has been Resist! Block! Reject! It is not just anti-American radicals like Michael Moore, who has indeed called for “100 days of resistance” to the Trump presidency, but by the leadership of the Democratic Party which has vowed to fight Trump’s appointments, has attacked the election result as an expression of popular racism, attempted to discredit the Electoral College by falsely calling it a legacy of slavery, and even accused Trump of being a Russian agent, a pawn in the chess game of its dictator Vladimir Putin. It is a sad day for America when the world’s oldest political party, whose name proclaims it a partisan of democracy, comes out in force as a saboteur of that same system.

Nor is all this simply a fit of Democratic absent-mindedness. Instead, it is the culmination of a long developing shift in Democratic Party politics, a shift symbolized by the current favorite to become its next leader. Keith Ellison is a Muslim radical who spent his formative adult years as a vocal supporter of the anti-American, anti-Semitic racist Louis Farrakhan. Ellison reflects the power of the Bernie Sanders radicals in the Democratic Party who according to recent Gallup polls now represent its majority, even though they lost a rigged primary election which would have made him the party’s presidential nominee.

The face of this new Democratic Party was revealed during a seminal moment in the second Clinton-Trump presidential debate.

Bikers for Trump Ready to Stand up to Protesters

A motorcycle group led by a South Carolina chainsaw artist will ride into the nation’s capital on Inauguration Day in support of the 45th President of the United States.

Bikers for Trump, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts, will likely be toeing the line with protesters, who are also expected to be at the event.

“The bikers are certainly used to being outnumbered and we are prepared to form a wall of meat,” Chris Cox, the founder of the organization, told the FOX Business Network.

However, Cox said he doesn’t foresee any problems occurring during the event, especially after the group’s experience at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where police successfully maintained order between Trump’s supporters and protesters.

“We’re anticipating a celebration here. We don’t anticipate any problems. We have a strict code of conduct where we don’t condone violence. But again in the event that we’re needed, you can certainly count on the Bikers for Trump,” Cox said.

He added: “The backbone of the biker community is the veteran. So these are guys that aren’t really used to backing down. You certainly won’t see bikers out there screaming, calling for destruction of private property or the death of police officers.”

Pelosi blames Bush for trillions of debt amassed during Obama tenure

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has a theory on who should shoulder the blame for over $9 trillion in debt the nation has amassed over the last eight years: former President George W. Bush.

Social Security, Medicare, and ballooning costs for unfunded federal mandates were not singled out on Friday by Mrs. Pelosi during a press conference as the prime drivers of U.S. debt. Instead, the California Democrat said Mr. Bush was culpable for debt incurred during President Obama’s time in the White House.

“When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was $1.4 trillion — one year deficit,” Mrs. Pelosi said, the Washington Examiner reported. “It’s reduced by 70 percent in his administration. Much of the increase in the national debt that has occurred from this time still springs from two unpaid-for wars, cost that we owe our veterans following that, giveaways that they gave to the pharmaceutical industry, and the high-end tax cuts that have carried forward without any job production. Absent the work of President Obama, this national debt would be even higher.”

Mrs. Pelosi also blamed Republicans under Mr. Bush for abandoning a pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) law that theoretically saved the federal government one dollar for every dollar spent.

Obama’s Purge: Why Has Frank Marshall Davis Been Quietly Removed From Dreams From My Father?

[This article originally appeared on October 3, 2012]

In 1995, an aspiring politician named Barack Obama published an autobiography called Dreams from My Father. There, Obama acknowledged the people who influenced him throughout his life. Among the most prominent influences was a figure that Obama gingerly acknowledged only as “Frank.” Remarkably, however, not once in the entire book did Obama divulge Frank’s full name. Even more mysterious, in 2005, a presidential aspirant named Barack Obama released the audio version of Dreams from My Father where, this time, “Frank” was purged altogether, as Jack Cashill called attention to in column on my book last July.

How did this happen? And who is “Frank?” The answer helps explains Obama’s concealment.

As readers of The Blaze know, Frank Marshall Davis (1905-87) was a mentor to a young Barack Obama throughout the 1970s, the period of Obama’s adolescence. Davis was also a literal card-carrying member of the Communist Party—Party number 47544. My book on Davis, The Communist: Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor, was published this summer by Mercury Ink.

Davis edited and wrote for Party-line publications such as the Honolulu Record and the Chicago Star, which included contributors who served as actual agents to Stalin’s Soviet Union. Davis did outrageous Soviet propaganda work in his columns, at every juncture agitating and opposing U.S. attempts to slow Joseph Stalin.

Obama's Transparent Presidency

We learned precisely who he is.

President Barack Obama promised that his would be the most transparent administration in US history.

And the truth is, it was. At least in relation to his policies toward the Muslim world, Obama told us precisely what he intended to do and then he did it.

A mere week remains of Obama’s tenure in office.

But Obama remains intent on carrying on as if he will never leave power. He has pledged to continue to implement his goals for the next week and then to serve as the most outspoken ex-president in US history.

In all of Obama’s recent appearances, his message is one of vindication. I came. I succeeded. I will continue to succeed. I represent the good people, the people of tomorrow. My opponents represent the Manichean, backward past. We will fight them forever and we will prevail.

Tuesday Obama gave his final interview to the Israeli media to Ilana Dayan from Channel 2’s Uvda news magazine. Dayan usually tries to come off as an intellectual. On Tuesday’s show, she cast aside professionalism however, and succumbed to her inner teenybopper. Among her other questions, she asked Obama the secret to his preternatural ability to touch people’s souls.

The only significant exchange in their conversation came when Dayan asked Obama about the speech he gave on June 4, 2009, in Cairo. Does he still stand by all the things he said in that speech? Would he give that speech again today, given all that has since happened in the region, she asked.

Protest group vows to block inaugural ceremony, parade

WASHINGTON — The 58th Presidential Inauguration on Friday seems certain to draw plenty of protesters. One group that is expected to be among the most active inaugural week has vowed to try to block President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural ceremony and inaugural parade.

The group DisruptJ20, which references the Jan. 20 date of Inauguration Day, is spending time this weekend in training sessions wherein veteran protesters share their experience.

While the workshops are being conducted on the campus of American University, the university banned news media from reporting on the two-day sessions, which are being held in the atrium of the School of International Service.

Woodward: Trump Is Right – Intel Community Attacking Him With Garbage

Bob Woodward blasted as "garbage" an unsubstantiated dossier released by U.S. intelligence agencies that alleges deep ties between President-elect Donald Trump and Moscow.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," the celebrated Washington Post editor said he sided with Trump in his fight with intel agencies on the salacious document.

"I’ve lived in this world for 45 years where you get things and people make allegations," he added. "That is a garbage document."

Professors Organize National ‘Teach-In’ to Challenge ‘Trump-ism’

Some 25 colleges and universities – many of them public – have answered a call by professors at UCLA to use their regular class time to “teach, organize, and resist” what they view as the discriminatory political agenda of President-elect Donald Trump.

Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say:

Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places of teaching and learning not only served as a sanctuary for its students and workers but also stood up to proclaim the power of knowledge on the front lines of social justice.

On January 18, the professors are calling upon their colleagues to “Teach, Organize, Resist,” and “affirm the role of critical thinking and academic knowledge in challenging Trump-ism.”

'There's a media campaign to bring down the government'

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday evening issued a lengthy statement on his Facebook page about recent media publications on the issues on which he is being probed. These include the transcripts of conversations between him and Yediot Aharonot publisher Arnon (Noni) Mozes that have been published by the media in recent days, as well as other reports about the second probe, which deals with alleged gifts Netanyahu received from wealthy tycoons.

“In recent days, there has been an orchestrated media campaign, unprecedented in its scope, to bring down the Likud government under my leadership. This propaganda campaign is designed to pressure the Attorney General and other factors in the prosecution to indict me.

“The method is simple: Every day and every night carefully filtered transcripts and intentional lies are distributed on both issues on the agenda.

“Of course, as long as the investigation is ongoing, I cannot defend myself. I cannot tell the public the real story behind these things, which makes it clear that there was no crime here.

Ringling Bros. circus plans to shut down 'Greatest Show on Earth' after 146 years

ELLENTON, Fla. – After 146 years, the curtain is coming down on "The Greatest Show on Earth." The owner of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus told The Associated Press that the show will close forever in May.

The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, company executives say. Declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributed to its demise.

"There isn't any one thing," said Kenneth Feld, chairman and CEO of Feld Entertainment. "This has been a very difficult decision for me and for the entire family."

The company broke the news to circus employees Saturday night after shows in Orlando and Miami.

Auto Stocks Slump After Trump Threatens German Carmakers

Shares in German carmakers BMW, Daimler and Volkswagen fell on Monday after United States President-elect Donald Trump warned he will impose a border tax of 35 percent on vehicles imported from abroad to the U.S. market.

All three carmakers have invested heavily in factories in Mexico, where production costs are lower than the United States, with an eye to exporting smaller vehicles to the U.S. market.

In an interview with German newspaper Bild on Sunday, Trump sharply criticised the German carmakers for failing to produce more cars on U.S. soil.

"Freetrade is certainly under threat. But everyone in Europe knows - especially in Germany - that as an export nation, the U.S. has more leverage. They have the bigger market and a stronger domestic economic activity. They do not depend on exports as much as Germany does. And if they decide to tighten the thumbscrews we will not have a choice but to obey. Because otherwise jobs in Germany will face difficulties. So car makers will think about more investment in the U.S. now to calm down Mr. Trump", said Robert Halver, head of capital markets analysis at Baader Bank.

How Martin Luther King Jr. Changed The Life Of A Street Kid In Kenya

When Kennedy Odede was a kid, he lived on the streets of a slum in Kenya.

He'd grown up in tough circumstances. His stepfather was violent. There wasn't enough food to go around. He wasn't sent to school. A friend convinced him he'd do better out on his own. He'd have his freedom, he'd be able to find his own food.

So when he was around 10, Kennedy left home. His new world was a world of violence. He was caught up in gang fights. He remembers being stabbed in the arm: "I still have the scar," he says.

Then one day, when he was 12 or so, he met Martin Luther King Jr. — on the pages of a book that an older friend at a community center gave him.

"I was looking for hope in my life," says Kennedy, who's now in his early 30s. "When I read the story of Dr. King, it was a powerful story. Dr. King gave me a reason to believe you can change your own life and change your own community. His idea is that you don't have to wait. Anyone's path can change. For me that was really powerful."

FBI & NYPD: Clinton Foundation Probed for Money Laundering, Financial Transactions with Islamic Terror Groups

Money launderers who bragged on a secret federal wire tap that they could employ Clinton Foundation connections to funnel and cleanse millions in illicit cash have sparked a newly-minted FBI investigation into the embattled charity run by Hillary Clinton and her family, federal law enforcement officials confirm.

The money laundering allegations being probed by the FBI have been buoyed by recent revelations and evidence discovered by the NYPD from a laptop confiscated from Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin’s Manhattan residence. According to NYPD, several of the emails recovered on the hard drive disclosed sensitive financial details of the Clintons and their charity. That evidence is now in the hands of the FBI too, whose New York field office has opened a parallel Clinton Foundation investigation.

Federal law enforcement sources said the Los Angeles-based money launderers, who are part of a separate federal investigation, discussed previously using Clinton Foundation personnel to domesticate foreign funds that could not be legally brought into the United States through traditional bank wires and deposits.

NYPD sources said Weiner’s email treasure trove contained correspondences regarding a company linked to President Bill Clinton and at least one offshore company, a South American affiliate of the Clinton Foundation. The emails also contained offshore financial correspondences, the source said.

Federal agents said one U.S.-based company is owned by Bill Clinton and according to linked banking intelligence discovered in emails, that entity disbursed millions of dollars via wire transfers through global banks to additional accounts controlled by the Clinton family and its charity. NYPD intelligence sources versed in anti-money laundering, said the emails and other items obtained from Weiner’s laptop paint a portrait of a complex corporate umbrella strategically formulated to seemingly operate and avoid law-enforcement detection.

“There’s sophistication in how this works and distributes cash to other accounts,” a federal intelligence source said. “Do we think this involves gun-running or drug-dealing criminals? Not intentionally, but the infrastructure is set up almost identically. Proceeds and income are being hidden the same way.”

Press Access to White House ‘Hasn’t Been Determined’

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said President-elect Donald Trump's administration hasn't yet decided whether it will allow the press to continue to work in the White House.

Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday, Priebus confirmed reports that Trump's team was considering moving the daily press briefings conducted by the White House press secretary to the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, just a short walk away from the White House.

"What I'm talking about, what we're talking about — and the only thing that was even discussed about this — was whether or not you wanna take that [press briefing] room that only holds 50 people […] and whether you wanna go 50 feet to the EOB and have for the first few weeks or the first month or so the press conferences where you can fit three or four times the amount of people. It's about more access," he said.

Times Be A Changin'

By Thornton Crowe

What's with all the seemingly mass hysteria surrounding Donald Trump's inauguration? Trying to remember if there was ever such dissent and discourse in our history, the only other time that comes to mind is 1969. The country was already embroiled in vehement debate because, unlike today, we were in the first widely televised war. After the initial discount, it soon became obvious that in the 60s, liberals were protesting because they didn't want to go to war while now, they're protesting because they don't want to go to work!

Trump supporters voted for a complete change in DC and the way it does business. No longer are we willing to accept the skyrocketing spending sprees, forced Obamacare and governmental meddling into our every decision. Finally, we've awoken up from our Liberal/MSM hazes and said it's not a bad thing to be American again - unlike the last thirty years where we've been scolded and bullied into shame for having pride in America.

Let's face it, we've entered the age where tangible results are king! It's not enough to just talk about issues to placate voters every two years. Results!

Yes, this was a true change election and one that will produce results as Trump will govern like a CEO instead of a political ideological hack, lacking Common Sense. He is a doer, which means now, DC is running scared. He is actually doing what he said he was going to do -- put people back to work by bringing back (and retaining) jobs to America. Scary actions produce scary times and our youngsters are about to be weened off the government plantation and actually get a job! Hence, making Trump a more legitimate president than the last four, combined. Imagine that!

In addition to the patently false dossier created by the GOPe during the primary, last week's bigger upset was when the State Department became inflamed over a request from our President Elect. The Transition Team asked all its employees to to submit job descriptions and justify what they do on a daily basis. Furthermore, in these job explanations, they had to illustrate where they've actually achieved tangible results -- code meaning: how they've earned their salaries.

Heavens to Murgatroyd... You mean, like corporations do all the time to assess efficiency? How dare Trump have the audacity to expect government to be efficient? What's up there?

All these loony liberal tantrums are merely an organized effort to shanghai Americans into buying this mythical notion that an efficiently-run government is a bad one because the DC class has lived off the biggest welfare government subsidy of them all. We've allowed them, through our own apathy, to cash in at our expense for so long that now, when they have justify their existence, they're crying victimhood!

Political loafers like Paul Ryan, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell are now required to produce results because gone are the days of empty words and platitudes being blindly accepted. Yes, indeed we've rattled some mighty cages and now, we're having to tolerate infantile tantrums. It's become pointedly obvious, the only thing bipartisan among the DC Elites is a penchant for waste, fraud, kickbacks, abuse and sloth!

We're in for the yuge changes we've voted for... momentous ones that will actually wrangle our government into working efficiently and with Common Sense while being ever-thoughtful of budgetary restraint. Simply put, our government will begin to work for us; not the other way around! Isn't it about time?

Buy your favorite whiner an alarm clock... time to go back to work!

Encouraging Racism

By Thornton Crowe

What started out as a New Year's Eve sleepover turned into a rampage of torture when four black adults kidnapped a white specials needs victim. They beat, cut, berated and forced him to drink toilet water while chanting hate against white people and Donald Trump. They laughed as they made their victim say he loved black people at knife point, while live streaming on Facebook.

The reaction of Chicago law enforcement and mainstream media was almost as appalling as anchors and the police grappled with calling the crime for what it is: a Hate Crime. Some, like CNN's Don Lemon, had the audacity to claim this wasn't evil, while the police stated initially it was just teenagers making bad choices?

Bad choices are shoplifting a soda, driving drunk or getting busted for weed - not kidnapping and torturing physically or mentally disabled people for kicks. Those are the actions of sadistic sociopaths, filled with malice and premeditation.

While Black Lives Matters was dubbed as being responsible (#BLMKidnapping) on Twitter, the Chicago Police denied any connection, yet is this suppose to admonish DeRay and company from any responsibility? Liberals and the Media have no problem making gross generalizations about 'all' Trump supporters being deplorable, yet, BLM can claim independence from an act and it's perfectly acceptable and unrelated?

Young troublemakers see the group killing police officers, rioting and looting with little justice administered and take it as a carte blanche to do whatever they want to white people without fear of repercussions. To make matters worse, many white liberals dub them as perpetual victims with tough upbringings, lashing out against an oppressive society, which punishes them simply because they're black.

In this instance, the Illinois court is holding this gang accountable by charging them with kidnapping, assault and two counts of hate crime each. The laundry list of charges has the defendants looking at 20-45 years without parole. Furthermore, Associate Judge Maria Kuriakos Ciesil denied bond, after asking them, "Where was the sense of decency?"

Is White Academia further encouraging this hate?

Before Christmas, Drexel University professor, George Ciccariello, actually posted on his Twitter account that his Christmas 'wish list' included White genocide in a series of Tweets. After outrage resulted in several petitions calling for his dismissal, he claimed his quips were merely satirical. The university issued a statement that, while they didn't agree with his statements, they still supported his First Amendment right to make them and had no intention of reprimanding or terminating his employment.


White genocide is no joking matter, so should Ciccariello be teaching and influencing our future leaders? Apparently, at Drexel the answer is, yes.

Salisbury is hardly immune from this dangerous mentality as we witnessed back in April 2015 at Salisbury University when two (or more) black students drew a lynching picture on a whiteboard at the former Blackwell Library and then posted it on social media. President Dr. Janet Dudley Eshbach and her administration did absolutely nothing to the students involved nor relay to the community any information or resolution. Instead, race-baiters ready to incite violence on whites, walk amongst your sons and daughters, without being held accountable for their racism. Remember you're paying a hefty in-state tuition to put them in potential harm's way.

Doesn't all this promote more violence on our population when hushed by authorities and given a pass by Liberals under the guise of political correctness? Absolutely and the Chicago incident is proof and point this attitude towards black-on-white hate crime can escalate to physical violence quickly!

When will Liberals accept their own connivance in these hate crimes against whites by advocating such domestic terrorist groups as BLM? Racism is racism, regardless of a victim's race and all crimes should be adjudicated equally instead of cherry-picked justice based on the public sentiment du jour.

A Viewer Writes: Local Business

Joe,

I wanted to inform possible customers about what I classify as an unfair business practice. On Monday January 9th 2017, I visited MacMillan OPE located at 720 Snow Hill Rd., Salisbury, Md. When asked by the gentleman how he may help, I provided written information needed to obtain a part for a chain saw. This gentleman retrieved a small sealed plastic bag, mostly flat, about the size of a playing card. One side contained writing the other clear to see several small parts inside the sealed package. I paid cash for the item and received a written receipt. I did not read the receipt. Today, January 11th 2017 I chose to return the item for a full refund. The same gentleman informed me that he could not provide a refund for the item, it was store policy to provide the correct item or an item of equal value. I informed the gentleman that I did not want or need the item and preferred a cash refund. This gentleman informed me the store’s policy is clearly stated in writing on the receipt and posted on a board to which he pointed. Although I was extremely disgusted, since most stores I deal with simply provide cash refunds for returned items, I left before I said something to be regretted. After processing the situation, I believe the best course of action is to warn potential customers of this business’ practice. I for one will never patronize this establishment again.

Thank you,
A Very Disgruntled Customer

Expect Schools In Wicomico County To Be Closed Tomorrow And More...1-8-17

Here's the latest. After speaking with a County Official this morning, road conditions are just plain horrible. 

Before any of you go off, understand the problem first. Because temperatures are so low, (and expect to stay that way until Wednesday) and so many vehicles packed down the snow on the roads, salt simply will not melt that snow/ice. It has to get above freezing before the salt will work. 

Even though we'll see the sun today, that doesn't mean it will help melt that snow/ice because the temperatures are so low. So we're in a unique situation.

As for the current road conditions, they're bad. They have plowed just about everything BUT there are no roads down to the blacktop, including Rt. 50 and others. If you have to get out and drive, you better drive really slow because everything is a sheet of ice. 

As for school closings, nothing is official but I can assure you, (at least in Wicomico County) you can pre plan on schools being closed tomorrow. I've also been told you might want to prepare for schools being closed Tuesday as well. 

UPDATE: I stand corrected. The salt WILL start melting the snow/ice below freezing. It's the unsalted back roads where you can expect the biggest problems. So the main roads will slightly improve but the back roads won't start clearing until Wednesday, (in my opinion).

Ocean City May Drop Free Inlet Parking Time From 30 To 20 Minutes

OCEAN CITY — Resort transportation officials this week approved a number of recommendations to tweak the paid parking systems including an adjustment of the time frame at the Inlet lot.

Following up on an earlier discussion from December, the Transportation Committee on Tuesday resumed discussions on how best to adjust the paid parking systems at the Inlet lot, side streets and other municipal lots in Ocean City. The debate included discussions on how best to upgrade or replace existing payment methods at the Inlet and other locations throughout Ocean City.

Because of the timing, in most cases the current payment systems will remain in place for the 2017 season, but there will likely be some tweaks based on recommendations from the committee to the Mayor and Council. For example, currently the first 30 minutes for parking at the Inlet lot are free and a graduated payment schedule kicks in after.

However, after considerable debate on Tuesday, the committee recommended adjusting the time frame to make the first 20 minutes free and the payment schedule beginning in the 21st minute. The thinking is 20 minutes is sufficient for a driver to go into the lot for a brief visit and anything beyond that would initiate the paid parking.

Md.'s Gov. Hogan must find footing with Trump

Gov. Larry Hogan appears to be struggling harder than most coastal elites to come to terms with Donald Trump's victory.

You cannot blame him, I suppose. He did what a Republican politician in a Democratic state had to do. He bobbed. He weaved. He ducked. He dodged. He cast a write-in vote for his dad. It was a performance worthy of a Daytime Emmy nomination, premised on the theory that Hillary Clinton would be elected the 45th president of the United States.

Then the improbable happened.

In the weeks since Mr. Trump's victory, Mr. Hogan has continued to bob, weave, duck and dodge. He called for unity. He encouraged everyone to take a deep breath. He avoided Mr. Trump at the Army-Navy game. He announced he will attend Mr. Trump's swearing in. He said he has not talked to Mr. Trump since the election. Then, despite evidence to the contrary, he settled on this gem: "Things are going to be great."

Pittsville Comments Worthy Of A Post

Magoo said...

Joe what do you think about this idea?

This is clearly one example of a town or municipality could and should dissolve it's charter and let Wicomico County take over the day to day operations.

Responding to above:
I completely agree that Wicomico County should take over the Town of Pittsville. I have lived here for over 20 years and have not seen any problems fixed (as we have many)and there needs to be a clean sweep done. I have been to the office on numerous occasions for not-so-difficult things that never were resolved. We need a strong governmental office and this small town needs some big guns.

6:21, I firmly agree. I can tell you the Town of Pittsville is being watched very carefully.

Let me explain something to everyone, I think you'll be quite pissed off when you read what I'm about to say.

I, Joe Albero, was the one who got our Annapolis Officials to piggyback Worcester County's distillery legislation and it PASSED.

Now, let me explain WHY.

You know the building I own next to the old Fire Station. I/We had a BUYER who owns a distillery licence who wanted to put a manufacturing facility there. They were going to completely rebuild the structure, employ 25 to 30 people and even committed to bring back the Strawberry Festival to Pittsville at their expense.

HOWEVER, it was Denver Moore who refused to allow this to happen, claiming I didn't have enough EDU's, (water and sewer) to allow such a facility, which was total BS. This company USES the water and the discharge was extremely limited.

Considering this is a COMMERCIAL property, Moore and the Council denied it and the deal fell through.

So 30 residents lost good paying jobs and the taxable income for the Town would have been perhaps the biggest taxpayer there.

So do I think the County should absorb the Town, absolutely. You people need to wake up and get these Idiots out of Office.

Michelle Obama Tells Muslims, Immigrants 'This Country Belongs to You'

“In her final speech as first lady on Friday, Michelle Obama singled out young immigrants and Muslims, many of whom express apprehension about President-elect Donald Trump.” “Do not ever let anyone make you feel like you don’t matter, or like you don’t have a place in our American story — because you do,” she said. “Know that this country belongs to you, to all of you. From every background and walk of life. If you or your parents are immigrants, know that you are part of a proud American tradition . . . that has made us the greatest country on Earth.” Religious diversity is “not a threat to who we are,” she said, “it makes us who we are.” More

Congressional Black Caucus to Re-Hang Anti-Cop 'Police as Pigs' Painting in Capital Citing 'Constitution'

According to a report, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) intends to sponsor a ceremony in the U.S. Capital to re-hang the offensive, anti-cop painting depicting police as pigs. Members of the Caucus are insisting that they are “defending the Constitution” by re-hanging the controversial artwork.

The news of the CBC’s intentions was made public by a January 9 tweet from Fox Business Network contributor Charles V Payne.

Congressional Black Caucus to rehang "Police as Pigs" painting tomorrow saying: "It’s about defending the Constitution.”
The painting depicting police officers as giant pigs pushing minorities around in Ferguson, Missouri, was originally hung by Missouri Democrat Lacy Clay in the tunnel of the Congressional Cannon office building of the U.S. Capitol complex. But it was recently pulled down by California Republican Duncan Hunter who said the thing fosters an “untrue narrative” that police don’t care about the public in general and minorities in particular.

“This false narrative portrays law enforcement professionals as posing a danger to the very communities we serve. That is untrue and this ‘art’ reinforces this false narrative and is disrespectful on so many levels,” Rep. Hunter said after he removed the offensive painting from the wall.
