Letter from Delegate Mark N Fisher

Marylanders: We can Save our State! In September, Texas Governor Rick Perry quipped to Governor Martin O’Malley: “In Texas we pray for rain — in Maryland you tax it!” Perry was of course referring to Maryland’s absurd “rain tax”. Highlighting Maryland’s rain tax, a tax that has received National recognition, is exemplary of Liberals...

Dear Freshmen Football Parents, It has come to our attention that a situation occurred at last night’s Freshmen football game against Northern in which incidents of taunting, confrontations between fans, use of inappropriate language, and overall bad sportsmanship, were exhibited by individuals in the stands identified as fans/parents of North Point.

Letter to the Editor on Rain Tax

I read in the Recorder that former Delegate Kullen has announced her candidacy to take back her seat in Calvert County. As a small business owner, I can’t imagine a worse outcome than to have Mrs. Kullen back in office to pursue her liberal agenda. In the article, she states two things I feel...

Bureaucratic Hypocrisy at its Worst

Let me get this straight; I was a dedicated, 12-year employee of the federal government, pledging my safety and security to ensure the life of the President of the United States as a Secret Service agent and was obligated to resign before entering the political arena due to strict rules surrounding the Hatch Act....

Nowhere Near the End for Maryland GOP

By Tony O’Donnell I read with interest the column of the long active political commentator, Barry Rascovar, last week where he gives assessment of the viability of the Maryland Republican Party. It brought to mind a famous quote from a great president, Ronald Reagan, who opined about what the liberals of his time knew...

On this day, we mark the twelfth anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks that claimed thousands of lives and changed our country forever.

Dear Gun Rights and Privacy Advocate: Yesterday I wrote many of you letting you know of my dismay that the new gun regulations were not fully posted on the Maryland Register.

Letter from Dan Bongino

The fight against media bias; the most dangerous battle in America right now? Let me tell you my story in the interest of maintaining some modicum of integrity in this slanted process. During my 2012 campaign for the U.S. Senate I saw the worst of the worst. Combined with my years inside the DC...

Letter from Dan Bongino

Ladies & Gentlemen, The disgraceful, continued, unconstitutional, harassing of law-abiding American citizens who choose to associate with Conservative groups is a growing national embarrassment. I spent over a decade of my life as a federal agent with the Secret Service, and the power to arrest an American citizen and take away his freedom is...

Governor Jan Brewer’s on Denial of Disaster Assistance

Last night just before going on his summer vacation, Obama DENIED federal assistance for the Yarnell fire that destroyed more than 120 homes and claimed the lives of 19 firefighters. Here’s my full statement regarding the President’s denial: I am deeply troubled by the Obama Administration’s decision to deny much-needed recovery assistance in the...

Letter from End Hunger

What’s so charming about Calvert County is the many family roots and rich history that are planted here. We do not often fret when our children walk to visit a neighborhood friend or bike to the boardwalk or ice-cream shop. While being comforting, we can sometimes overlook the reality many families are facing. Feeding...

Dan Bongino on Questions

Have you ever noticed that philosophical liberalism can never answer the big questions? None of the big questions are ever answered because when they are honestly answered, the results are devastating. When Detroit recently declared bankruptcy, despite the unquestionable reign of decades of institutional liberalism, no answer was given, only the questions were changed....

Letter from Dan Bongino

Ladies and Gentlemen, Division politics based on race, sex, and religion is a common tactic of disingenuous politicians but they disregard the one category where the people are genuinely different. That category is the political aristocracy. I am pledging to you a lifelong commitment to dismantle the thick wall the aristocracy has built to...

Letter from Preston Pratt

Letter from Preston Pratt

I think we would all agree that every citizen should have access to affordable and quality health care coverage. I also believe that many of us would agree that the most beneficial solution to the health care issue in America, as well as in Maryland, will not be found in the agendas of the...

Preston Pratt on Residents Moving Out of State

I constantly hear Maryland residents talk about moving to other states because of the direction our state is heading. I find this very troubling and the fact that our one-party rule is fully aware of this and yet continues to burden hard-working Marylanders with their tax-and-spend agenda is both a failure of leadership and...

Dan Bongino on Benghazi

Ten months after the horrific tragedy in Benghazi, Libya, when terrorists attacked the U.S. Consulate and killed four Americans, the administration has given no credible answer to persistent questioning about why units such as the Foreign Emergency Support Team were not activated to save the lives of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information officer Sean...

Dan Bongino on Inner Workings of the DC Bubble

I have been torn over this but I feel, given the current circumstances, the need to speak out. Although I will never share privileged information or violate the oath I took to serve as a Secret Service agent, I must describe to you the inner workings of the DC “Bubble” to demonstrate how you...

Bongino: “How Did We Get Here?”

How is it that, in our relatively short, two-hundred-year-plus history, we have moved from a service-oriented, citizen-centrist, limited government to our current insider-centric leviathan? I spent twelve years inside the Washington DC “Bubble” as a Secret Service agent under three presidential administrations (Clinton, Bush and Obama) and saw firsthand a government which has been...
