A Mischief of Rats

This editorial is intended as a friendly, cheer-up gesture to our friends in the 7th District of Maryland. They’re stinging from the insults of President Trump, who, in a feud with Congressman Elijah Cummings, sent out a twitter characterizing the district as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.” The jibe was met with a riposte by a Baltimore native, CNN’s Victor Blackwell, who choked up in broadcast that has gone viral. We hope Mr. Blackwell can take some comfort in the fact that when it comes to rats, Baltimore has got nothing on Mr. Trump’s hometown. The other day we were transferring trains

If we're talking about collective nouns, how about an insane asylum of Democrats? Or would that be an insane clown posse of Democrats?

The President is correct. I was born in Baltimore, visited Baltimore and enjoyed Baltimore MANY YEARS ago. Before it was destroyed by the corrupt Mayors that turned it into a hell hole. Baltimore today is running close to Chicago or LA. I refuse to go to Baltimore and tell my friends and family DO NOT go there because it is unsafe. As for Elijah Cummings, he should be very careful what he says. His own wife is stealing from her so call charity to pay for her profit business. He along with this corrupt wife should be in jail.

Given the poster of this article, I didn't know what to expect from this article. I figured it out and it is as I expected. A jab at President Trump. We have leaders at every level in city, state, and country. The money that taxpayers have to pay at all levels you would think our problems would have solutions. Except government people don't get it but want the money to keep coming in. That is why I appreciate President Trump. He wants to fix our ailing problems and not keep kicking the can down the road.

The premise is false. Cummings is in Congress. Trump lives in NY. Not the same. And even if you accept the premise, it doesn't excuse Cummings. He is a dishonest democrat screaming racism while his constituents are ignored.

Just to get technical for a minute -- Does that ranking of rat-infested cities by a trap company use absolute numbers or percentages? Baltimore is far smaller than New York, so how do the rats-per capita compare?

On top of the rat problem, Baltimore has barely coherent public officials and a police force that has had its hands tied since the reign of Obama. Is there a black woman anywhere in government that is handling the job?

I believe he has called out NYC phoney Mayor also. Cummings and his wife need to be in jail. Why hasn't Cummings tried to help his district clean up and also try to help drug problem. He doesn't even live there anymore.

I'll be flamed here but that's oK I can take it. I voted for Trump and know he's fighting an uphill battle every single second of his presidency. And I support him, financially and with my time. But, you know what? I'm getting so sick of his lashing out like this. I fear that eventually his own mouth will do him in. He could get the same message across by stating, "Baltimore has a serious rat and rodent problem. So I'm inviting Congressman Cummings to the WH to discuss how we can work to find a solution." The same message; the same slam on Cummings for not providing a safe and healthy environment for his constituents...but Trump would appear as a leader instead of a nasty, loose cannon. I'll continue to support the man and his policies, but it's getting really hard to support his behavior. Go ahead. Let the flames begin.

I agree with #13. The President overshadows his really effective achievements with schoolyard taunts. He's obviously never going to get past being an emotional 13-year-old in these situations. We can only hope and pray that enough voters evaluate his administration more seriously and can overlook the juvenile impulse to react to every single thing that shows up in the news.

Rats have always been with us the author says colonial times? How about medieval times they have always been a scourge. The problem with the democrats is that their enviro crowd does not want to do what it takes to kill them and it will inevitably lead to disease and the plague. That is what rats bring you folks, you can choose to ignore it but that is a fact; and so I suppose until the bodies are piling up and the carts come down the street call out "Bring out your dead" life will go on. But you will pay the piper sooner or later and the price is always higher later.

Please regale us with more stories of grand ineffectualities of brilliant Republican strategists and other severe conservatives whose keen understanding of focused group responses as policy value Washington social invitations and status over bluntly articulated truth and principle. If you have a message, and an audience, you speak to them. And bypass the self appointed gatekeepers of the media and press Corp. never Trumpers need to self assess the source of their malaise.

No flaming necessary...but let me ask my fellow posters (whom I respect), exactly how well have we done with previous mature, diplomatic, and thoroughly gentlemanly "leaders" (ohhh, say like McCain or Romney) in getting the Democrats to "work with us"? Have they come to the table and found a way to really solve the problems of their deteriorating cities and states? Do they respect us more now for "reaching across the aisle" and letting them pick our pockets some more? Don't all answer at once. I know it may take some time to think of at least one or two cases. No. The Romneyization of Trump isn't going to cut it. Reason: the Democrats are at WAR with us, not just quibbling over language. And it's going to take a WARRIOR to take them down. Stop whining that he's using the wrong salad fork and start helping him reload.

''I fear that eventually his own mouth will do him in.'' It has worked pretty well so far. President Trump has the democrats so deranged that they are destroying their own party. Of course, we could insist that he act like the perfect gentlemen that were both of the Bushes, Mitt Romney, and other Republicans that were steamrolled by democrats! I prefer a man who will take the fight to the opposition, instead of being Mr. nice-guy who shows phony respect for the people who would destroy this country! President Trump is fighting fire with fire. Some people may not care for his style, but I accept it as a key to his successes.

The same hand wringers and pearl clutchers have been doing just that at every opportunity since Cruz or Kasich or their favorite uniparty member didn't win the nomination. Some of us have long memories. Effete behavior and "Sunday" manners are cold comfort for 4 years of Democrat/media punishment (those of us who supported the Bushes know this well) but that is just what our betters here and elsewhere wanted. We were to have again weak, mute, and castrated leadership, the same thing we have had since Reagan left office. I'd rather the effective, over the top bluster than the mild simpering eunuch reaching limp wristed hand across the aisle. But then I wish the best for all our people, not just the cocktail and country club class.

I guess the word democRATS says it all. A democrat mayor brings in the drug addicted homeless, which brings in their discarded food trash, which brings in their excrement on the sidewalk, which brings in the rats. The next step is the homeless relocate out to the suburbs to escape the rats,.....well you can guess what is coming.

But, when you watch the videos here yesterday of Cummings' district in Baltimore, my first thought was that those row houses have "good bones". The President is correct when he questions what the heck does the city do with the millions of dollars sent to it by the government. Couldn't some people who are smart and have integrity get together and turn those row houses into real decent places for people to live. You can see by the videos that there are homeowners in the line of row houses who are making their homes so nice, but how can they live without fear with all that's around them. Someone with courage and tenacity should have the decency to turn that neighborhood around for the residents. Mr. Cummings and his wife should remove themselves from the scene. We are so tired of these crooked politicians who take advantage of the system and the people of Baltimore are sick of them too.

No disrespect intended, #13 & #15, but the silk-stocking, snuff-box elite crowd in the Republican Party has been pretty much useless for decades. Playing a gentlemen’s game has allowed the left to take over every aspect of our culture and communications. I’m afraid that if our beloved republic is to survive, it’s going to take a street fighter. It would be nice if that fighter came in the guise of a polished, polite, measured, and beloved figure, but this is what God has provided. I am in no way disparaging your comments, as I believe you both know the stakes well, and are patriots. I know some who feel the way you do. But, I caution all of us that the left will use any perceived weakness it can find for its dark purposes. They will use our own honesty against us. They will never rest. And so, we have Donald J. Trump, warts and all.

I see the rat tweet as a indictment of the crime in Baltimore not the rodent problem. However, like most major cities, rats/rodents are a huge problem, and as #2 indicates, it's common knowledge that Cummings wife has been dipping into public funds to enhance her business. The difference is, she's the wife of Cummings. Remember, they kicked the mayor of Baltimore out of office for a few years ago for stealing gift cards meant for charities, and she was a democrat.

I see the moderates here are clutching the pearls again. That polite routine has been tried for how many decades now? Has it ever worked? No? Well then I suggest that Trump is resorting to shock and awe, simply because he cannot get the democrats to deal with their urban rot. Now he has them defending it. Bravo Mr. President. I just wish the moderates would stop with their phony behavior, I really do. Snippy attitudes for thirty years have gotten us to the point where only strong measures will work now. Maybe they didn't notice that while Trump set up an icky bit of master trolling for the media to focus on, he got his big win at the SCOTUS for the wall funding. So stop with all the vapors, okay? Like all bad behavior in children, if you don't challenge it, it continues. The Left hasn't been challenged in 30 years, so Trump has taken on the task.

Simply stated, what nasty Democrats refuse to accept is that President Trump has as much right to defend “his” people, be they government employees or ordinary American citizens, as do his sanctimonious adversaries defending “their” people. Elijah Cummings and his ilk behave like bullies using outrageous language, facial expressions and distortions of reality. President does not stoop to their level. President Trump is a New Yorker and speaks bluntly. To the pearl-clutchers he is unsophisticated, boorish. Wrong! President Trump possesses more sophistication, compassion, courage, and truth-telling than his adversaries have combined and knows when and where to use sophistication or blunt speaking. The shameful performance by Elijah Cummings mirrors the behavior of most Democrats. Elijah Cummings assailed a man who was simply doing his job within the dictates of government policy. There is absolutely no excuse for such behavior.

Donald Trump is the odds-on fave to win reelection, and the Republicans can take back the House and keep the Senate if they aren’t stupid and incompetent – meaning it’s far from a done deal. But the Democrats are in a terrible position. The just and satisfying utter humiliation of crusty establishment hack Bob Mueller left them without a lot of good options going forward, since not being leftist idiots is obviously off the table. What do they do now that the entire soft coup hoax is a heap of garbage smoldering in the dumpster of American politics? Do they stick with Putin paranoia?

For many conservatives, the labor struggles of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders are greatly amusing. The senator has never seen a favor to Big Labor that he didn’t support, yet his presidential campaign staff complain to the press about their working conditions. He also neglects to pay them the mythical $15 an hour minimum wage he promotes on Capitol Hill and in his stump speeches. More incongruous was the senator’s response. He told the press, “It does bother me that people [i.e., union members and officials] are going outside of the process and going to the media. … That is really not acceptable.

Now that Democrats have stopped calling the untenable situation at America’s southern border a “manufactured crisis” and recognized it as a “humanitarian crisis,” perhaps a bipartisan solution can be found to at least one aspect of the problem: the continuing flow of unaccompanied children across the border. But we shouldn’t hold our breath. The left — activists, the media and Dem politicians — are more interested in badgering the Trump administration than solving the crisis.

At least one gunman opened fire Sunday at Northern California’s Gilroy Garlic Festival, killing at least three and injuring 15, before being fatally shot by police stationed nearby who responded in less than a minute after the initial shot was fired, a police official said. The shooting rampage began at 5:41 p.m. on the north side of the festival, Chief of Police Scot Smithee said at a press conference late Sunday. Smithee said the gunman gained access to the festival by cutting through a fence near a creek area. He said some witnesses reported a second suspect, but police could not immediately confirm those reports.

What she reveals about the organization’s goals and methodology is not only unsurprising, but confirms what conservatives have been claiming about Planned Parenthood for years. Wen first writes that while she understood Planned Parenthood certainly performed abortions, she didn’t believe that should be the organization’s primary goal. “While the traditional approach has been

There are really only two ways to consider the borders of Israel when it declared independence in May 1948: the entirety of the Palestine Mandate OR the proposed border put forward by the United Nations General Assembly in 1947. As discussed below, only one of these is legally valid, while both options demonstrate that Israel does not occupy any “Palestinian Land.” May 1948 Borders: the Palestine Mandate When the Ottoman Empire broke up, the French and British assumed control of various mandates until the local populations were able to establish their own functioning governments.

What to do about the booming Trump economy is a problem the Democrats have yet to solve. Democratic presidential candidates always want to run as though it is 1932 and their mission is to end a depression, but that is hard to do when employment is at record highs, wages are rising, and in general the economy is perhaps the strongest in American history. For the most part, the Democrats’ strategy has been to change the subject. They have gone from “It’s the economy, stupid” to “The economy? Who cares?” But they can’t avoid the issue entirely.

Alan Dershowitz is a lifelong liberal, but in recent years he has diverged from the left-wing line on a few issues, including Israel and, to a degree, the Trump administration. That has brought the knives out. Liberal anti-Semites, in particular, are out to get him. The New Yorker, a disgusting rag, has been “researching” a hit piece on Dershowitz for some time. Apparently the magazine has dredged up two “accusers” who had something to do with Jeffrey Epstein, and claim that Dershowitz had sexual relations with them. The allegations appear to be entirely false, and may have been cooked up by the partisan lawyer David Boies, who somehow

Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) posted a video Saturday bragging about how he had escorted an eight-and-a-half months pregnant migrant from Mexico into the U.S. because the woman allegedly was having a difficult pregnancy.
