At the end of the June 20 (2016) Aberdeen City Council meeting an Aberdeen resident complained about four foxes living on the weed over-grown property adjacent to her property. The Republican-Aegis reporter Dave Anderson was present with his laptop when the complaint was made and verified by the Mayor. The public complaint never made the online or print editions of the Republican-Aegis newspapers. The full testimony is secretly available on the city blog at: https://hcn.viebit.com/#aberdeen city council
This is maybe a perfect story for Baltimore Fox News
(Why is the reporter sitting in the line of the podium camera? Is he a “hot dog”? Can the editor please edit him out of that angle in the future?)
Rep. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts was fed up with the ritual in Congress of a moment of silence followed by no further response to the latest mass shooting in America. She approached civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis of Georgia. Lewis responded with organizing a classic sit-in. This time it would be inside the well of the House of Representatives, something never done before. And so history is being made. The Democrats are now galvanized and vow to continue the fight. Moving forward, spreading the word about the issues involved is crucial and Brave New Films is one great resource.
Brave New Films is doing its part to spread awareness with its own Gun Safety campaign running since 2014. You may think you know the story but the facts will speak for…

fter 51 mid-level U.S. State Department officials called for the Obama administration to begin attacks on Syrian armed forces, it seemed beneficial to share a video of retired U.S. intelligence professional Ray McGovern explaining historical facts which might result in the 51 altering their perceptions. One has to wonder exactly why – as Syrian forces are getting ready to retake ISIS’ long-held self-proclaimed “capitol” city of Raqqa – these 51 individuals would call for such counter-productive action.
Ray McGovern starts by talking about the 1996 document: “The Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”, and identifying the “realm” as “greater Israel”. The plan consists of “blowing apart Syria”, the same for Iraq, then Iran, and was conceived by so-called “neocons” Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and other high level political people powerfully influencing events in Washington, D.C.. After 5,000 Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis…

Not sure why the Republicans chose to have their convention in Cleveland – but with the atmosphre created by their current candidate it’s going to be one hell of a mess.
In the meantime, in the city whose police murdered Tamir Rice and got away with it…There is change afoot.
Cop shootings have torn apart Cleveland. Jawanza Colvin says the way to heal the city is to root out racism from the legal system.
CLEVELAND — One night in February, a black preacher put the prosecutors on trial.
It had been two months since the prosecutor’s office in Cleveland’s Cuyahoga County persuaded a grand jury not to indict a white police officer who had shot and killed Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy, in a city park.
Now the prosecutor was running for reelection, and with the primary a month away, the Rev. Jawanza…

“After the deadly winter of 1862-3, the 280 Dakota men convicted the previous fall are brought to a compound in Iowa, where they will spend three years before being exiled. The 1,400 Dakota at Fort Snelling are sent by steamboat down the Mississippi and up the Missouri to new reservations. Crow Creek Reservation in Dakota Territory is a terrible place—bone dry and not at all suitable for farming. “It is the dirtiest country I ever saw,” writes missionary John Williamson. “The dust rises in the tent and settles all through the woods so that you cannot get rid of it. Even the river is full of it.” Because of the military’s poor planning, extreme rationing is implemented as soon as they arrived. The death rate is high. A federal law, the Dakota Expulsion Act, abrogates all Dakota treaties and makes it illegal for Dakota to live in the…

Appears the Russians are getting highly concerned over the possibility of a neo-Nazi madman like Trump becoming President…
Russian hackers have been accessing the Democratic National Committee’s computer network for the past year.
According to the Washington Post, which first broke the story Tuesday, the hackers accessed the DNC’s database of research on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and also read DNC staffers’ emails and chat conversations.
CrowdStrike, the security firm called in by Democrats to deal with the massive data breach, says two different groups of Russian hackers gained access to the DNC’s network. CrowdStrike doesn’t believe the groups — nicknamed COZY BEAR and FANCY BEAR — collaborated with each other. “Instead,” company co-founder Dmitri Alperovitch wrote in a lengthy blog post, “we observed the two Russian espionage groups compromise the same systems and engage separately in…

Here is my favorite photo of Mayor Patrick McGrady (Aegis Photo) . Here the Tea Party Republican rebel rouser stands with the former Vice President of the Route 40 Republican Club. , John Stortstrom. Mr. Stortstrom was revealed to be a white nationalist racist by the Southern Poverty Law Center. The AR-15 assault rifle McGrady is holding was being auctioned off at his Aberdeen Rally to raise money for the Route 40 Republican Club. Remember, McGrady’s rally cry “Guns save lives! guns save live ! guns save lives!” (see video below)
The Aberdeen Mayor that doesn’t like the democratic process in elections and in city council matters recently selected without Council discussion or vote a new insurance company for city employees. Mayor McGrady with advise from a non-elected crony ( the mysterious Mr. Gary Wilson) decided to change City employee insurance from Cigna to Evergreen. A representative of the city police union,Jason Neidig, testified against the arrogant autocratic decision pointing out that the city Finance Director opposed the change also. There also was no input on the matter sought from employees or the general public. The Mayor just buried the unilateral decision in the annual budget. The City Council was asleep at the wheel over the decision and did not raise any questions or interest in the matter . The Council surrendered their responsibilty to be a checks and balance to the mayors corrupt decision making process again.
Evergreen Insurance has now stumbled into a possible $25 million loss of profits and the politically corrupt Mayor and his secret financial advisor don’t seem to know or care what pig in a poke they have bought. Why worry about poor undemocratic decision making when the Council is just a quiet rubber stamp.
