One Week After Elections Democrat Barbara Kreamer Gets A Power Shot Pic For Winning Her 6th Consecutive Time For Democratic Central Committee

July 3, 2018


The lazy hazy crazy Republican Aegis which did little or nothing to cover the political primary election races does a post mortem on who’s up and  whose down on the Harford County central committees.

It journalism with out the journal  of reporting the actual event . Its like covering  a sporting event by telling you who the players are and then skipping to the final score. Journalism with no substance , no integrity,. Its know nothing journalism for know nothing voters. It leaves elections up to rumor, innuendo, hearsay and gossip. (The Dagger gossip blog fills the void)

That leaves elections up to the hokey  habit of handing out  political  propaganda  flyers as  fake “sample ballots” on election day. The result is . unethical, undemocratic, corrupt  elections. And the the same lazy journalists cant even report on the corruption!

Dodgy Journalism – Republican Aegis Spreads Political Speculation That Republican Barry Glassman May Challenge Andy Harris For His Congressional Seat! Glassman Says He Will Reveal His Mysterious Plans On Oct 17th!

September 21, 2017

In the September 20, 2017 issue (Candidates Signing On For 2018 Harford Elections) of the Republican Aegis, ace reporter David Anderson states:

No one had filed for Harford County executive as of late Monday afternoon, according to the Maryland State Board of Elections website. Incumbent County Executive Barry Glassman is scheduled to make an announcement about his plans Oct.17 at the Level Fire Hall , where he declared his candidacy in the past.



The Republican Aegis continued its unethical and corrupt journalistic bad habit of not reporting the political fact that Harford Democrat Allison Galbraith is registered to run for the U.S. Congress Maryland lst District.

Why Boycott The Republican Aegis?

July 29, 2017

The Republican Aegis has refused to report the fact that Harford Democrat Allison Galbraith is a candidate for Maryland’s First Congressional district.



The lack of any reporting on Allison Galbraith’s campaign in Harford County by the Republican Aegis suggests that the hometown newspaper is purposely ignoring the political story because it is either journalistically corrupt or politically corrupt. It appears the Republican Aegis is deliberately refusing to be fair and accurate in its political reporting.

The Republican Aegis’s dodgy journalism by corrupting the fair reporting of political information is also corrupting the political process.

Because of this corrupt reporting, the public is encouraged to boycott the Aegis on Wednesdays to protest the undemocratic and unethical behavior of the publishers of the Republican Aegis.

Some might ask:  “Has the Liberal Democrat rag “Setting Sun” made any mention of Galbraith? People wont boycott the Aegis. Its the only paper in the county just like the “Setting Sun” is the only rag in town. Bring back the Examiner,” (Mr.Jackson, The Dagger,07/27/17)

Good question. But the Baltimore Sun is in reality a conservative newspaper that leaves Harford County reporting up to the Aegis. So the Sun has signed off on not covering Allison Galbraith,too.  Their in-house political expert  Dan Rodrick reported recently that the First Congressional District was a cake walk for incumbent Andy Harris . Rodrick also suggested that there was no chance of a competitive election in 2018. Complaints were made about the fairness of this analysis . Bullshit was played. No balanced Sun reporting on Allison Galbraith was forthcoming.

The Sun leaves the Harford politics up to the Republican Aegis. That’s what they are told to do by their bosses at the Republican Chicago Tribune.

Yes the”Setting Sun” needs competition. But a few more budget cuts and the Sun will probably turn into a daily  sports/entertainment paper called the Baltimore Metro.

In the mean time the Republican Aegis  is the only major source of political information in Harford County. The Sun doesn’t give a shit. The Republican Aegis for some reason is afraid to report on the who-what-where-when-why  of Allison Galbraith.

Are they afraid that fair and balance reporting on her campaign might help insure her victory over the tired, incompetent , reactionary incumbent Andy Harris?  Probably.

The incumbent Congressman   literally is afraid of town hall meetings since he was booed in Chestertown in early Spring. He has been told by his handlers that those public  meeting are now bad public relations. Bad p.r he is told begets bad polling. Bad polling may beget  a  surprise on Election day.

So the Republican Aegis is afraid that Allison Galbraith might win  and the incumbent Republican  Teabagger Andy Harris is afraid  he might lose.

Allison Galbraith like the  fictional “Atomic Blonde” is politically fearless.

If the word got out with fair and accurate journalistic reporting who Allison Galbraith really is maybe political courage beats out political fear.

In the meantime democratic political pressure needs to be put on the corrupt, unfair and unethical  journalism of the Republican Aegis.

Baltimore Sun /Aegis “Blackout” (Censor) News Coverage of Allison Galbraith Congressional Campaign Kick-off In Bel Air Is An Example Of Flagrant Political Bias And Dodgy Journalism?

May 18, 2017




Allison Galbraith opened her campaign for the U.S. Congress on Friday May l2th at the Sean Bolans Irish Pub in downtown Bel Air, Md.

This unique political event was covered by the near by Cecil County newspaper The Cecil Whig but was oddly ignored by Allison’s home town newspaper the Republican  Aegis. There was also no coverage by the Aegis’s corporate owner, the Baltimore Sun.

The absence of no coverage at all  in the  Republican Aegis suggest  an editorial decision that the political event was irrelevant.

That editorial decision is  political bias and corrupt journalism. The Republican Aegis Editor Ted Hendrick and the Sun publisher  Triffon Alatzas should rexamine their journalistic credentials and their professional standards.

The political event that the Republican Aegis and the Baltimore Sun does not wish you to know about was recorded by the campaign manager and is reproduced below.

Republican Aegis Talks To Everyone But The Aberdeen Tent City Homeless In Front Page Story! Backwater Newspaper Treats Homeless As If They Are Dangerous Criminals That Cant Be Approached

January 14, 2017

Why didnt the Republican  Aegis reporter try to communicate with Aberdeens Tent City homeless? Why does the local press  and the County govt treat the homeless as if they are dangerous refugees? Why didnt the Aegis reporter  ask the “heart-broken” Mayor why he doesnt use his “empty” rehabed Church on Bel Air Ave  for a “wet house” for the homeless in Aberdeen?  The Mayor has passed the buck to the County on the homeless. He hasnt done a damn thing  in Aberdeen to resolve the problems except call the homeless  ignorant names like “stubborn” and “hardheaded”. That really sounds like a “broken-heart”   ( The Aegis/ Record headline was a quote from  Mayor: “It breaks my heart”)

Aegis Dodgy Headline And Dodgy Sheriff Provoke Hysteria Over Annual Homeless Memorial Service

December 23, 2016

Local Harford County backwater newspaper The Aegis did its best to deceive and misrepresent the annual homeless memorial service in its front page headline: VIGIL HONORS COP KILLER.   The  candle vigil merely memorializes anyone who was homeless when they died in the county in 2016. No one was “honored”. Six dead homeless were remembered.


The local Harford backwater Sheriff Jeff Gahler joined in on the hysteria with a letter denouncing the vigil for mentioning the  homeless police killers name, David B. Evans. He was homeless when he died so he deserves to be apart of the homeless vigil.

The Aegis’s  inside headline (4) was more honest  objective  journalism but I guess it doesnt sell as many papers because its not  tabloid short and sensational.


If we took better care of the homeless maybe six of  them wouldn’t be dead and maybe one  of them wouldn’t have acted  in a deranged violent manner.

Merry hysterical Christmas  David Anderson (Aegis) and  Sheriff Gahler!

Does The “A” In The Republican Aegis Stand For Asshole? Democracy And Male Hormones

November 2, 2016

The Republican Aegis rarely gets the important elections right.  Over 150 years ago the then  Southern Aegis in Bel Air mistakenly supported slavery and opposed Lincoln for President. Now the Republican Aegis makes another significant mistake by suggesting there is a political equivalence between a flawed but talented and experienced  Hillary Clinton and a know-nothing , racist, sexist bigot Donald Trump. That’s an asinine analysis of the political situation. Just say you can’t make difficult decisions. You give up. Your Republican candidate is appalling. Say what’s in your heart. We cant afford a  woman President. Its never been tried. Its as bad as thinking about voting for that black guy. But don’t hide your prejudice behind a farcical false equivalency. (the Benghazi/E-Mail Conspiracy???)?  The two candidates are  not equally disgusting choices. One is a threat to democracy  the other is a only a threat to Male Hormone Syndrome. You state your thinking most clearly when you say “We CAN’T endorse Trump, we WON’T  endorse Clinton”.

Shoveling The B.S. Pt. 3 – Aberdeen Mayor Patrick McGrady Complains About Aegis Editorial That Called Him “Petulant”. The Mayor Said The Criticism Bordered On Ageism.

August 6, 2016


“Petulant’ is a journalistic euphemism for arrogance (i.e. insolent or rude speech or behavior)  A perfect example of McGrady’s petulance is this video of McGrady trying to campaign at a City Council meeting. McGrady is not aware that he is  often a political asshole.When he doesn’t get his way he acts like a bad tempered sulking child. Its the Trump Syndrome or maybe its just the Republican brain.

DodgyJournalism -RepublicanAegis Out-Foxes The Public Interest By Refusing To Report On Aberdeen Residents Report of Wild Foxes On Carroll Ave

June 28, 2016


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: 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?)

RepublicanAegis – Special Meeting In Aberdeen Wednesday (Feb24) Fails To Resolve Election Tie Issue

March 1, 2016

RepublicanAegis – Aberdeen City Attorney “Dead Wrong” On Resolving Tie Vote, Tie Vote Is Not Really A Vacancy , Its a SNAFU! Tie Vote Elections Are Usually Resolved With A Runoff Election, Drawing Lots Or Council Vote

November 11, 2015


“The legal concept is, it is not a tie between  Sean DeBonis  and Stephen Smith. The people of Aberdeen failed to elect someone for the fourth seat. So we only have three seats elected” says Aberdeen City Manager Doug Miller . (City Told To Pick Fourth Winner, New Aberdeen Mayor To Appoint , Council To Ok, The Aegis,  Bryna Zumer ,Nov 11, 2015)

If this is the legal opinion of Aberdeen’s city attorney  then its “legal” bullshit. The Republican Aegis points out  two other tie elections in Harford County. Both were resolved with runoff elections (2003, Bel Air  and 1978 Havre de Grace; ) The people did not fail to elect someone, the political system  failed to work .  In New Windsor ,Md  in 1999 the city council VOTED to resolve the tie. (Gaithersburg has a charter provision that says a tie leads to a runoff, and if there is a tie in the runoff then  a coin-flip is required)

According to The Aegis, both candidates,involved in the election tie  are rightfully upset that there is no fair resolution. And all 600 plus voters who voted for these two candidates are going to be upset if there votes are thrown out. If EVERY VOTE COUNTS then these votes should not be discarded. The people elected two candidates with the tie vote. Either seat them both or provide a fair  resolution to the tie  –  a) a runoff, b) council vote or  c) drawing lots or flipping coins. As  Stephen Smith says “The citizens are being cheated”. And Sean DeBonis agrees ,telling the Aegis that the fairest solution to the tie vote is a runoff.election. Smith And/or DeBonis should take the matter to the Maryland Attorney General before this mistake becomes a  political joke.

After  the matter is resolved , the City Attorney should be let go for incompetence(.Sussman/Miller could find no data of tie elections in Maryland. The Aegis found two tie votes In Harford. Dr. Google  found one in New Windsor, Md)  And someone  should question the  city managers common sense..



RepublicanAegis/ErikaButler – Aberdeen Town Election : Councilwoman Ruth Elliot Challenges Mayor Michael Bennett

September 7, 2015


The Republican/Aegis reports that current Aberdeen Mayor Michael Bennett will be challenged by Councilwoman Ruth Elliot in this years town election on November 6th.   Appointed Councilman Steve Smith will seek voter approval to keep his political seat. And council members Ruth Ann Young and Sandra Landbeck are undecided about reelection.

Tea Party Republican Patrick McGrady who lost his bid for mayor four years (2011)  ago in a close race has lost his political fire  since getting married .  McGrady told the Republican Aegis “…I have no definitive plans at this point today.” McGrady also lost  in 2010  when he ran for House of Delegates  in the Maryland General  Assembly. But McGrady did say he was “dissatisfied with the current stock of candidates for mayor and city council, so I may have to run.” There is an open seat and one new challeger.

At the August meetng of the New Harford Democratic Club  it was also announced that Rev. Melvin Taylor would be a candidate for the city council.

GahlerWatch/Aegis Editorial – Has Harford County Sheriff Jeff “More Guns” Gahler Lost Focus On His Primary Responsiblity—Enforcing Laws … Not Making Them????

February 25, 2015



February 20th Republican Aegis Editorial

The Republican Aegis suggests that the new Harford County  Sheriff Jeff Gahler may “need a bit of a reminder about the role of his new office. The sheriffs primary responsibility in Harford County is enforcing the laws. not making them.” 

 Gahlers primary focus so far has been to advocate changing the law to omit safety firing training for gun permits,  changing the law to provide for a warrant-intercept program and changing the law that doesnt allow the Sheriff to moonlight.

The Republican Aegis  comments:  “…the sheriff needs to be focused on law enforcement, not legislative lobbying in Annapolis….the sheriff needs to be seen having his attention focused on the crime problems that afflict Harford County…The sheriff needs to focus” on crime and safe roads “and be seen through his actions as making them high priorities”

Political BS Quote of Week – Republican Aegis: “Thornton…has run a rather ABRASSIVE campaign that seems focused more on Slutzkys record than his own agenda”

October 25, 2014


*Is “abrassive” some kind of code word for irritating and arrogant? Is “abrassive” some kind of dog whistle for “uppity”. The Republican Aegis’s demonstrates common sense in understanding who Slutzky is, but its neo-confederate leanings cant shake its old racial code talk when trying to understand Jim Thornton. Thorntons campaign is not abbrassive, its forthright and refreshingly frank and his agenda has always been front and center-“people first not friends and cronies” and the councils role should be to “check and balance”  the county executive not “rubber stamp” it.
