NFL Players Union May Appeal Ray Rice’s Indefinite Suspension

New developments in the ongoing Ray Rice saga. The players union left open the possibility it will fight Rice’s indefinite suspension from the league.

Investigator Mike Hellgren has more on what the NFL commissioner told the union in a new letter.

In the letter, Commissioner Roger Goodell says the video shows “a starkly different sequence of events” from what Rice and representatives told him at a meeting. But once again, anonymous sources are denying Goodell’s version of events.

The players union may appeal Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension from the NFL. In a new formal letter to the union, the commissioner says Rice met with him in June and never told him about the punch

Kanye West Tries To Shame Man In Wheelchair Into Standing During Sydney Concert

Kanye West shocked fans in Australia when he halted a concert after two fans failed to stand up for him, even though one was in a wheelchair and the other had a prosthetic limb reports The Independent.

The often controversial rapper stopped a show in Sydney, demanding that every member of the audience get up and dance.

“I can't do this show until everybody stand up. Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking and s**t,” he shouted.

The majority of people stood up but when West spotted two people still seated he called them out and refused to go on with the show.

Connect the dots: Obama met with cleric who supports Hezbollah on 9/11

Just yesterday we shared the story of the reception given to Senator Ted Cruz at the “In Defense of Christianity” conference Wednesday in Washington D.C. where he was booed off the stage. As you can read here, there are Christian clerics who have some interesting ties to the vile Iranian-backed Islamic terrorist army and organization known as Hezbollah — who has the blood of our Marines on its hands from Beirut in 1983. Now you might think what happened at the conference was bad enough, but folks it gets worse – not surprisingly.

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “President Barack Obama and White House national security adviser Susan Rice met with a delegation of Christian Middle Eastern leaders in Washington, D.C., on Thursday that included at least one Hezbollah-supporting Lebanese cleric. The meeting came one day after Sen. Ted Cruz was booed off the stage for defending Israel while giving a keynote address at a “In Defense of Christians (IDC)” conference for the same delegation of Christian leaders.”


Yes ladies and gentlemen, our president, Barack Hussein Obama, met with a cleric who supports Hezbollah on 9-11. The same Obama who the evening prior in his defective ISIS strategy speech had the nerve to say ISIS is not “Islamic.” And then went on to show more indignation that ISIS has killed Muslims rather than the genocide against Christians and other religious minorities.

Howard County Schools Disciplines Student Who Displayed Confederate Flag At Game

A Howard County student who unfurled a Confederate flag at a high school football game was disciplined, according to a spokeswoman for the school system.
Rebecca Amani-Dove, the spokeswoman, would not say what type of action was taken against the Glenelg student who displayed the flag while standing at the top of the bleachers during the season opener between Glenelg and River Hill high schools on Friday night. The student was immediately told to take the flag down.
“Carrying a Confederate flag is not illegal, but anything that causes disruption is actionable from an administrative perspective,” Amani-Dove said. “Administrative action was taken in alignment with our student code of conduct.”

The case below is a new case involving a 14 year old CHILD who was beaten so badly by the Officer it may have broken his jaw and the child was hospitalized. Oh, by the way, it's been reported the child was stopped for not having a light on his bicycle. 

I know of yet another possible case that may be filed soon as well as two other people possibly filing suits in the near future. It's NOT looking good for the Salisbury Police Department.

Walmart Workers Complain They Can't Afford New Dress Code

Walmart workers are apparently not too happy about having Walmart tell them how to dress, and now labor activists are getting involved.

Richard Reynoso, a Walmart employee working in a southern California store, sent a letter to Walmart’s corporate headquarters on Monday, claiming that he couldn’t afford to comply with a new company dress code that takes effect on September 29. It was written on letterhead with the logo of OUR Walmart, a union-backed organization advocating for Walmart workers.

Under the new code, workers will have to a wear a collared blue or white shirt and black or khaki pants, along with a Walmart vest the company will provide. Employees can use clothes they already own or buy new clothes anywhere they want, but they have to pay for the shirts and pants out of their own pockets.

Two Howard County Students Show Up To School Draped With Confederate Flags

Days after a Howard County student unfurled a Confederate flag at a football game, two high school students showed up at Glenelg High School on Wednesday with Confederate flags draped over their shoulders.

Rebecca Amani-Dove, a Howard schools spokeswoman, said the students displayed the flags on school property before the opening bell and were immediately told to remove them.

“They were asked to put them away, and they did,” Amani-Dove said. “It has been calm at the school.”

Ravens Fans, Men And Women, Wear Ray Rice Jerseys At Thursday Night Game

Music blared from the purple bus, and Baltimore Ravens fan Racquel Bailey stood with drink in hand amid her usual tailgate buddies while making a bold fashion statement: a black, rhinestone-decorated jersey with the white No. 27.

A Ray Rice jersey.

"There's two sides to every story," said the 23-year-old waitress from Baltimore. "I saw the video. That's their personal business, and it shouldn't have affected his career. I don't agree with domestic violence, but she's still with him, so obviously it wasn't that big of a deal. Everyone should just drop it."

Ravens fans male and female, young and old, arrived for Thursday night's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers debating the events that have affected their team over the last few days. Their once beloved running back has been kicked off the team and banned by the NFL after a video surfaced that showed him punching his then-fiancee — and now wife — inside an Atlantic City hotel elevator.

DC Teacher Has Sixth-graders Compare George Bush To Adolf Hitler

A public school teacher in Washington who instructed sixth-graders to compare former President George W. Bush to Adolf Hitler has learned her own lesson, according to district officials, but critics wonder why she still has a job.

D.C. Public Schools Chancellor Kaya Henderson responded to the controversy late Wednesday on Twitter, saying no curriculum intended to make the comparison “in any way” and that the district and unidentified teacher are “deeply apologetic” about the matter. Henderson said the teacher has been ordered to apologize to the class.

“No DCPS curriculum says 2 make these comparisons in any way,” Henderson wrote. “Teacher used poor judgment & will apologize.”

Marc Thiessen, who worked for years as Bush’s speechwriter, said the teacher should be terminated immediately.

“A person who can’t tell the difference between George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler shouldn’t be teaching children,” Thiessen told FoxNews.com. “This isn’t even political bias, this is utter incompetence.”

Judy Davis and Mary Beth Carozza

Candidate Judy H. Davis 38C Candidate Mary Beth Carozza 38C This woman is running for the new Legislative District 38 C which covers East Wicomico County from Parsonsburg to West Ocean City which is your new District. She claims in her literature that she is a school teacher, but on this interview she claims that she is a substitute teacher who is currently unemployed. She also claims she is loaded with all these degrees and specialties. If you listen to her she is a mooch just like Laura Mitchell. She dresses like Laura Mitchell and mooches off the Government like Laura Mitchell. She even mentions Laura Mitchell being her friend. These Democrats are all alike and their first priority is to mooch off the government. Look at her and compare her to Mary Beth Carozza. Mary Beth worked at the Pentagon and was one of the Deputy Chief's of Staff for Governor Ehrlich. Mary Beth is a first class act and Judy Davis is a first class loser who is unemployed and totally clueless. She even says her husband is unemployed.

Do You Remember This?

Hello. Don't recognize me? That's OK, I understand. My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. I think my murder and my mommy's wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty. Too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn't have the money they demanded.

See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn't ruled a "hate crime."There isn't a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because, if there was, he would be branded a "racist." So no one's rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand "justice" for me. There's no White Panther party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation and, unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller, I no longer have my life.

Isn't this a great country? So while you're out seeking justice for Trayvon or Michael Brown, please remember to seek justice for me. Tell your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon and Michael Brown. I won't hold my breath. I don't have to anymore.

Teen Caught on Video in Black Mob Beating of White Student

Tuesday in court was supposed to be a pretty straight forward day for Alec Guessford: Let the family court commissioner watch, on video, as five of his black classmates taunt, harass and beat him on a school bus in April. Watch his classmate promise to never, ever do it again.

Make a victim’s statement. Then get on with his life as a Dover, Delaware junior high student.

Four of the assailants had already pled guilty to various charges of misdemeanor assault and conspiracy — including the person who took the video and posted it.

But it got complicated when the fifth assailant, Tracy Matthews, decided to take his chances with a trial before the commissioner. Matthews said no matter what it seemed like on the video — he’s the one with the hoodie — he was not beating anyone. He was just looking for his headphones. The four assailants testified on behalf of their friend/accomplice.

Ireton Calls Salisbury Attorney Who Sued the City a Liar and Legal Hustler

In an interview that was shown on WBOC last night, Jim Ireton said “that’s an out and out lie” in response to a statement by Luke Rommel regarding his efforts to settle his clients’ claims against the City.

And this is from a post on the WMDT website regarding another suit, alleging police misconduct and use of excessive force, that Mr. Rommel has filed against the City in the federal court in Baltimore:

"We will not comment on Mr. Rommel, and his searching out citizens and University students to file suits against police," Ireton wrote in an email on behalf of himself and Police Chief Barbara Duncan.

Does this reckless mud-slinging call to mind the similar out-of-control acts of a former Salisbury Mayor? It seems Ireton has a habit of maligning lawyers who represent those who object to City conduct - just ask T. J. Maloney.

DHS Wants to Tag Us Before They Bag Us: The Enhanced Driver’s License

On Steve Quayle’s “Q Alert” page, he recently posted the following warning from an Arizona resident:

Q Alert

Hi Steve,
I live in Az and just went to get my drivers license renewed. They handed me a paper with my photo on it and said my new license would be mailed in about 2 weeks. It says it is an ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSE or EDL. A cursory internet search reveals at least 6 other states are implementing it and that it has a microchip in it that can be read up to 30 feet away. Contains your fingerprint and biometric data and is linked to multipledatabases. In other words it is a REAL ID just under a different name! The American people wholeheartedly rejected the REAL ID yet they are going forward with it anyway by giving it a different name. Please get the warning out.

"Fix Bayonets!" The Feds Gave 12,000 Bayonets to Local Police Departments. Why?

National Public Radio did something very useful recently. It investigated who got what in the U.S. government’s program to give military equipment to local police departments.

This initial list raised more questions than it answered. The main question is this: “Why?

79,288 assault rifles
205 grenade launchers
11,959 bayonets
3,972 combat knives
$124 million worth of night-vision equipment, including night-vision sniper scopes
479 bomb detonator robots
50 airplanes, including 27 cargo transport airplanes
422 helicopters
More than $3.6 million worth of camouflage gear and other “deception equipment”

First, why does the Army still buy bayonets? Bayonets have not been used in combat since about 1848.

‘Hold On, They Got a White Dude’ in Memphis

“Hold on, they got a white dude.” And it sure seemed like fun — if the laughing and shrieking on this latest video of black mob violence is any indication.

This racial mayhem happenedSaturday night in Memphis at a Kroger’s department store. WMCA Channel 5 out of Jackson, Mississippi picks up the story, all of it except the central organizing feature of the violence: All of the hundreds of people involved in the mayhem and violence are black. Except the victims. They are white:

“Three people were jumped by a large group of teenagers who were chanting ‘fam mob.’” The group, who came from CiCi’s Pizza, reportedly attacked a 25-year-old customer as he left his car to enter Kroger. Two employees, ages 17 and 18, were attacked while trying to stop the fight. Both were “struck several times in the head and face, while being knocked to the ground.” The victims say large pumpkins were thrown at their heads. They both eventually were knocked unconscious.”

However serious it seemed to the victims, the predators and their videographer were having a good time. Laughing and running.

Traffic Stop Leads to Laurel Drug Arrest

Laurel, DE- Delaware State Police have arrested a New Jersey woman after a vehicle stop yielded drugs late Monday night.

The incident occurred on Monday, September 8, 2014 at approximately 11:00 p.m. as a trooper on routine patrol observed a black Toyota Camry traveling on southbound Sussex Highway just north of Trussum Pond Road, in Laurel. The trooper observed that the Camry was following another vehicle at an unsafe distance and conducted a vehicle stop.

Upon contacting the operator of the vehicle, later identified as Tanisha M. Mader, 20, of Willingboro, New Jersey, it was determined that she was driving with a suspended driver’s license. Mader also produced an expired motor vehicle insurance card for the car. Tanisha Mader was then asked to exit her vehicle at which time a search of the car was conducted. During the search, troopers located over 3000 grams of marijuana in a plastic bag and suitcase in the trunk of the car.

Tanisha Mader was taken into custody and transported to Troop 5 where she was charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance in a Tier 3 Quantity, Possession with the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, and several traffic charges. Mader was then arraigned and committed to the Delores J. Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution for lack of $50,500.00 cash bail.

Backlash Against Michelle Obama's Public Schools' Menu

Prior to Eleanor Roosevelt, no first lady was a public figure. The term “first lady” was not capitalized. First ladies stayed in the background. Eleanor Roosevelt became the first full-time First Lady nag, both for her husband and for the nation. Her husband ignored her, but liberal Democrats kept her on a pedestal long after her husband unexpectedly left office.

Bess Truman and Mamie Eisenhower did their best to restore the older tradition. Nobody ever heard from them. But then came Jacqueline Kennedy, the best-dressed woman ever to grace the White House. She even gave us a tour of the White House on national television. From that time on, First Ladies have been expected to do something both useful and noncontroversial. Each First Lady is supposed to select some national do-good project, and devote her public life to it. I suppose the best example of this was Lady Bird Johnson’s cheerleading for planting flowers along federal highways. That seemed innocuous enough, as long as you were not in the road sign business.

Now we get Michelle Obama. She picked the most controversial topic in First Lady history: nutrition. She is serving as a cheerleader for new federal regulations being forced down the throats of America’s schoolchildren. She wants them to stop eating things that will make them fat, rot their teeth, and generally be worth paying for.

See the Measly Tip an NFL Star Allegedly Left on His $61.56 Bill

Is it ever OK to stiff a waiter or waitress who gives you bad service, bad food or both?

If you do decide to leave a very small tip or no tip at all, is it alright for the restaurant to publicly shame you for doing so?

Just a day after his team won their home opener in impressive fashion, Philadelphia Eagles All Pro running back LeSean McCoy and three friends reportedly visited a hamburger restaurant called PYT.

Apparently, the diners were not pleased with the service and/or the food. According to thePhiladelphia Daily News, Rob Knelly, the man who waited on McCoy’s table expected the bad tip. Knelly told the Daily News that the party was rude and loud, commenting on the food by saying, “What is this s**t?”

Major Restaurant Chain to Gun Owners: We Respect Your Rights, but Leave Your Firearms at Home

Panera Bread is asking customers not to bring firearms into its locations, becoming the latest company to take an anti-gun stance in an attempt to “preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.”

The new policy asks that no one other than law enforcement officers bring guns into any Panera Bread location.

In a Monday statement, the restaurant chain cites “Panera Warmth” as part of the reasoning behind the decision:

“Within our company, we strive to create Panera Warmth. This warmth means bakery-cafes where customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome. To this end, we ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer. Panera respects the rights of gun owners, but asks our customers to help preserve the environment we are working to create for our guests and associates.”

Global Warming May Mean Bye-Bye For Some Birdies

As the world gets warmer, the Baltimore oriole will no longer be found in Maryland. The Mississippi kite will move north, east and pretty much out of its namesake state. And the California gull will mostly be a summer stranger to the Golden State.

WBOC To Finally Break The BIG Story & Video On SU Students and Salisbury Police Arrest

While it only took them FIVE DAYS to finally break the story, the child was on a bicycle, not a "bike". I say that because with "Bike Week" upon us, I don't want people to think he was on a BIKE with no light. 

Mayor Ireton stated the Police Officer did the right thing in BOTH cases. I, (nor you) should expect ANY other such statement from the Mayor. IF the Mayor had stated the Officer may have been in the wrong, both lawsuits would be a slam dunk for the victims. 

Funny, WBOC didn't mention that. 

Report: NFL never asked for video of Ray Rice elevator assault

The NFL never asked Revel Casino for the elevator security tape that showed Ray Rice knocking out his future wife, TMZ reported Tuesday, citing sources.

The casino would have given a copy of the tape to the NFL, sources said, as it gave copies to the police and Rice's lawyer. But the league didn't ask for it.

So when Commissioner Roger Goodell handed Rice a two-game suspension, it was without seeing the video, TMZ reports, and based on the statement released by Rice and his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, that both of them were involved in the physical altercation.

How Many Police Shootings A Year? No One Knows

A summer of high-profile police shootings, most notably the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., has rekindled a decades-long debate over law enforcement’s use of lethal force.

Police unions and some law-and-order conservatives insist that shootings by officers are rare and even more rarely unjustified. Civil rights groups and some on the left have just as quickly prescribed racial motives to the shootings, declaring that black and brown men are being “executed” by officers.

And, like all previous incarnations of the clash over police force, the debate remains absent access to a crucial, fundamental fact.

Can You Find What's Wrong With This Picture?


Ray Rice's contract terminated by Ravens

In response to video leaking of Ray Rice striking his wife unconscious, the Baltimore Ravens have terminated the contract of the seven-year running back.

The Baltimore Ravens have released running back Ray Rice, the team announced on Monday afternoon. The release comes following a video of him striking his then-fiancee Janay Palmer and knocking her unconscious leaked Monday through TMZ.

Ray Rice had been serving a two-game suspension handed down earlier this year by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Goodell has subsequently acknowledged his mistake in the face of widespread public criticism over the length of the suspension and the manner in which he investigated the matter. Goodell reportedly allowed Rice to be in the room when Palmer met with Goodell at the NFL offices.
