Pamela Geller's free speech group to post Muhammad cartoons on D.C. buses

Pamela Geller, fresh off a nationwide furor generated by her "Draw Muhammad" contest in Texas, is now planning a new wave of First Amendment messages for downtown Washington, D.C., that will feature the winning cartoon plastered on buses and trains.

The winning drawing, by Bosch Fawstin
The American Freedom Defense Initiative, the group Geller co-founded, announced the new initiative as a way of standing ground in the battle against political correctness and media censorship, particularly when it comes to showing elements of the Muslim faith.

"Because the media and the cultural and political elites continue to self-enforce the Sharia without the consent of the American people by refusing to show any depcations of Muhammad or showing what it was in Texas that had jihadists opening fire, we are running an ad featuring the winning cartoon by former Muslim Bosch Fawstin from our Muhammad Art Exhibit and Cartoon Contest in Garland, Texas," she wrote, in a statement posted by Breitbart.

"Let the American people see what the cowardly press is censoring in accordance with the blasphemy laws under the Sharia," she went on.

The ad campaign is targeting buses and trains in the Foggy Bottom, Capitol South, Bethesda, L'Enfant Plaza and Shady Grove stations.

"Drawing Muhammad is not illegal under American law, but only under Islamic law," she said. "We cannot submit to the assassin's veto."

Geller also reminded of the importance of freedom of speech for America's society, and said just because something is offensive, doesn't justify censorship.

"Putting up with being offended is essential in a pluralistic society in which people differ on basic truths," Geller said. "If a group will not bear being offended without resorting to violence, that group will rule unopposed while everyone else lives in fear, while other groups curtail their activities to appease the violent group. This results in the violent group being able to tyrannize the others."

Geller also said the cartoon does not incite violence, and is 'within the established American traditions of satire."

Michelle Obama invokes race to graduates: 'Two beautiful black girls' on White House lawns now common

Always with the race issues ...

First lady Michelle Obama – who famously said during her husband's presidential campaign that she was proud of America, for the first time in her life – has once again honed in on race as a central speaking point, telling graduates at Oberlin College in Ohio the nation's now accustomed to seeing her two black daughters wander the White House lawn.

She first said in her commencement address students should "get in there" and "shake things up," the Hill reported.

"That is how you will rise above the noise and shape the revolutions of your time," Obama said.

By way of example, she spoke of her own family's rise to White House power and suggested it was a sign of black America's hard-won accomplishments.

"Today, it is no longer remarkable to see two beautiful black girls walking their dogs on the South Lawn of the White House lawn," she said, the Hill reported. "That's just the way things are now. This is what happens when you turn your attention outward and decide to brave the noise and engage youself in the struggules of our time."

Obama also mentioned Martin Luther King Jr., who spoke at the school 50 years ago, and said "climate change, economic inequality, human rights, criminal justice – these are the revolutions of your time."

The first lady first made national headlines with perceived race-laced remarks in 2008 when she told a Wisconsin campaign crowd: "People in this country are ready for change and hungry for a different kind of politics and ... for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country because it fells like hope is finally making a comeback."

Shortly after, the press reported on her Princeton thesis from 1985, entitled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community," and her written views: "My experiences at Princeton have made me far more aware of my 'blackness' than ever before. I have found that at Princeton no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be towards me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don't belong. Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second."

EPA's looming power grab over water leaves businesses 'scared to death'

The Obama administration is set to unveil new protections for America's bodies of waters that will give the Environmental Protection Agency broad powers to regulate thousands of businesses and homeowners.

The EPA's "waters of the United States," or WOTUS, regulation is set for issuance this week, the Hill reported. Its premise is to provide more protection for minor bodies of water, like wetlands, streams and ponds, using the authorities already granted the feds under the 1972 Clean Water Act.

Opponents say the measure goes too far and will strictly regulate the activities of businesses and residents, while providing little anti-pollution results. For instance, farmers, miners, developers and manufacturers say the rule would even clamp down on land uses by ditches, dry creekbeds, puddles and even soggy grounds, the Hill reported.

The EPA and the Democrat-led field of regulation supporters, however, say the rule only gives the federal agency control over an extra three percent of areas it already oversees.

"Our members are scared to death of it," said Jack Mozloom, a spokesman for the National Federation of Independent Businesses, in the Hill, "because their property is their business in many cases. They're accustomed to dealing with their respective state environmental enforcement agencies, and this adds an entirely new and disturbing layer of federal bureaucracy on top of all that."

Gallup: Americans 'greatly overestimate' LGBT numbers -- by 20 percent or so!

This just shows the power of the liberal press, Hollywood and leftist activists ... 

A just-released Gallup survey says Americans "greatly overestimate" the number of their fellow citizens who identify as gay or lesbian, mistakenly putting about 23 percent of the population fits this category.

The truth, however, is that number is far lower.

The National Health Interview Survey, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention project, found in an extensive research paper in 2013 less than 3 percent of participants labeled themselves as gay, lesbian or bisexual, Breitbart reported. Only 1.6 percent in this same survey self-identified as gay or lesbian.

Gallup's survey, however, shows Americans by and large are fooled into thinking the gay-lesbian population sits in the double-digits.

From its poll, Breitbart reported: "[A]ll available estimates of the actual gay and lesbian population in the U.S. are far lower than what the public estimates and no measurement procedure has produced any figures suggesting that more than one out of five Americans are gay or lesbian. The widely off-the-mark nature of Americans' estimates is underscored by the finding that in the most recent update, from May 6-10, only 9 percent of Americans estimate that the gay and lesbian population is less than 5 percent, where Gallup's tracking figure would put it, while at the other end of the spectrum, 33 percent estimate it as more than 25 percent."

Gallup found younger Americans in particular put the numbers of gay-lesbian Americans higher than older Americans, and women do similarly.

Teacher who stomps flag put on leave: 'We have no idea why he would' do this

An Illinois teacher whose flag-stomping classroom presentation was reported by students has now been placed on administrative leave and under investigation.

Students and school administrators, meanwhile, say they can't understand why the teacher, who's not been publicly names, would do such a thing.

The Journal Gazette & Times-Courier first reported the Martinsville Junior-Senior High School incident. Students said the teacher was using the U.S. flag as a pointer, and when one in the classroom called that disrespectful, the teacher became angry.

Students said he then put the flag on the floor and stepped on it, the Daily Caller reported.

"We can't figure out why he actually went to the simulations of actually doing it," senior Jonathan Smith said, to Tristatehomepage.com. "He talked about it being the right to do whatever he wants. That's why it was there, so he could do whatever he wants, but we have no idea why he would actually take it down and basically start all this."

Town residents hearing the news of the flag-stomping rallied outside the school in protest.

School district superintendent Jill Rogers announced shortly after the teacher had been place "on leave, pending an investigation," and "will remain on leave for the remainder of the school year."

Sheriff David Clarke tells lawmakers: Leave the police alone

The first of several planned House Judiciary Committee hearings on police militarization turned tense, as lawmakers debated the best ways to regulate law enforcement and outspoken Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke, one of the invited panelists, shot back: Community policing is not federal business.

The hearing, headed by Chairman Bob Goodlatte, who vowed he would "not rest until we make
progress," was aimed at sifting through the last few months of citizen-generated complaints about police brutality and discrimination, and reaching legislative consensus on the use of military gear for local law enforcement, Politico reported.

Instead, lawmakers got sidetracked with discussions about the use of the word "ghetto," and their personal accounts of being stopped by police, the news outlet said. Other issues that cropped included the statistics of black-and-black crime, and whether that topic belonged in the police militarization debate.

"I want us to get to the point where we lament the murder of a black female ... at the hand of her abusive husband," said Rep. Trey Gowdy, Politico reported, "just as much as if it was at the hand of a white cop."

Clarke, meanwhile, offered an entirely different line of argument for lawmakers to consider.

"Let's leave that [police] conduct for the public to engage in, not ... elected officials who can't resist the opportunity to exploit the emotions of an uninformed or misinformed public simply for political gain," he said.

Clarke also furthered a point he's previously raised – that of minority communities' current problems with police have more to do with "black underclass subculture behavior" than police practices.

The Senate held a similar hearing on Tuesday, after which consensus was reached to create a grant program to provide funding as incentives for police to enact certain policy reforms, Politico reported.

Obama to bar military gear for cops: It's a 'defining moment for American policing'

President Obama on Monday is traveling to Camden, New Jersey, to announce new federal rules for police – including bans on certain types of military equipment.

The president's announcement comes on the heels of the White House creation of a task force to look at policing around the nation and determine recommendations for agencies to better, and more safely, serve their communities. Obama announced the task force after the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, that began over the police shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown, and then spread around the nation via a "Black Lives Matter" and "hands up, don't shoot" campaign.

In Camden, Obama will first visit with police at their headquarters and then head to a community center to speak with youth and deliver formal remarks, the New York Times reported.

"I'll highlight steps all cities can take to maintain trust between the brave law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line and the communities they're sworn to serve and protect," Obama said during a weekly address over the weekend, the Huffington Post reported.

Among the equipment police will no longer get from the federal government are armored vehicles, weaponized aircraft, firearms and ammunition of .50 caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets and camoflauge uniforms.

The feds are also reportedly looking at ways to recall such equipment that's already been distributed among police.

The federal government will further restrict the use of Humvees, certain types of manned aircraft, drones, some types of firearms and explosives, battering rams, helmets and shields. Beginning this fall, police will need special permission from the city or county governing authorities in order to obtain this equipment.

The full task force's report is due to be released Monday. Members of the panel said they came up with the list of banned equipment because "the substantial risk of misusing or overusing these items, which are seen as militaristic in nature, could significantly undermine community trust and may encourage tactics and behaviors that are inconsistent with the premise of civilian law enforcement," the Associated Press reported.

Another report from the 21st Century Policing task force includes a list of recommendations for police to incorporate to improve relations with community members. The White House said 21 police agencies around the country, including Camden's, have already agreed to collect certain never-before reported data on police interactions with citizens. Among the upcoming data collections: The number of stops police enact on citizens, and the number of officer shootings that occur in a given time frame.

"We are without a doubt sitting at a defining moment for American policing," said Ron Davis, director of the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services at the Department of Justice, AP reported. "We have a unique opportunity to redefine our policing in our democracy, to ensure that public safety becomes more than the absence of crime, that it must also include the presence of justice."

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, ISIS chief: 'Islam is the religion of war'

Shocked ... shocked!

Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi sent out a chilling message to fellow Muslims in an online post, calling on fellow followers of the faith to get in the religious war – that Islam has never been about peace.

His message, titled "March Forth Whether Heavy or Light," was posted at the online site, Downrange, and points to a single verse in the Koran calling on believers to "strive with your wealth and your lives in the cause of Allah," Jihad Watch reported.

And al-Baghdadi's post: "O Muslims, Islam was never for a day the religion of peace. Islam is the religion of war."

He then appealed directly to fellow believers to get in the fight.

"Where are you in relation to your prophet (peace be upon him) whom you claim to emulate, and who spent his whole life ... as a mujahid for the cause of Allah, fighting for his enemies? His lateral incisor tooth was broken in battle, his forehead was wounded, two rings from his chainmail cut his cheeks, his helmet was broken on his head and blood ran down his face."

Al-Baghdadi also said Muslims ought to realize "the Jews, the Christians and the rest of the disbelievers" will not "abandon waging war against you until you follow their religion and apostatize from yours," and as such, should join ISIS.

"This war is only against you and against your religion," he wrote, Jihad Watch reported. "Has the time not come for you to return to your religion and your jihad and thereby bring back your glory, honor, rights and leadership? Has the time not come for you to know that there is no might nor honor nor safety nor rights for you except in the shade of the caliphate? ... Therefore, O Muslims, seek shelter, after Allah, with the Islamic State."

House Democrats press bill to let illegals serve in U.S. military

This is a disaster ...

A Democrat-sponsored campaign to let illegals serve in the U.S. military is winding through the House via an amendment to the National defense Authorization Act.

The amendment, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego from Arizona, puts Defense Secretary Ashton Carter at the helm of deciding whether those already approved for deferred deportation – under President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program – are also eligible to serve in America's military.

Gallego said the amendment was a no-brainer – that it "shouldn't be a controversial issue," the Daily Signal reported.

He went on: "The secretary of defense has the authority to deem what is in the national interest of the United States and all we are asking is for him to consider allowing DACA recipients who meet the criteria and want to serve, into our military for that same reason."

The Daily Signal reported Gallego, who's a veteran of the Iraq war, said "this amendment is about defense and what is in the best interest of our nation and our military," and "what matters is the quality and commitment of the people you serve with, not their immigration status."

Not all in the House, which is controlled by Republicans, see the amendment in the same light.

Republican Rep. Steve King from Iowa called it an "amnesty amendment" and said it's "disappointing" a bill that's supposed to "keep this nation safe from its enemies at a time of war" is instead being used to push a political agenda, the Daily Signal reported.

"The amendment encourages the secretary of defense to find ways to enlist illegal granted amnesty under the president's illegal and unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals into the armed services," King said, the news outlet reported. "This policy would provide a fast track to citizenship for those accepted into a program Congress has voted to defund three times. ... It is the wrong policy on the wrong bill at the worst time."

The amendment comes at a time when other media have reported the Pentagon ratcheting its recruitment of illegals. Since January, the Pentagon's enlisted 81 illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children and were therefore eligible for Obama's DACA program, the Hill reported.

More have since signed up, and the Pentagon put the number of available military slots for DACA participants at 5,000 by October.

New England Patriots' fans start GoFundMe to help pay team's $1 million fine

I. Love. Patriots'. Fans!

New England Patriots' fans have started a GoFundMe account to help raise part of the $1 million in fines assessed the Super Bowl-winning team.

Fans say they started the account because they opposed the NFL's decision to fine the team for Deflategate, the name dubbed the ball deflating scandal involving quarterback giant Tom Brady. The fine came on the heels of the much ballyhooed report from NFL-hired attorney Ted Wells that concluded Brady likely knew his footballs had been deflated below league standards – but did not definitely know.

Brady faces a four-game suspension without pay and his team, the loss of its first-round draft pick in 2016 and fourth-round pick in 2017 as additional punishment.

Fans expressed outrage at the penalties, particularly the $1 million fine, assessed Brady and his team on what they saw as flimsy evidence.

As of Wednesday, the account registered more than $13,000.

"We obviously know we won't reach One Million Dollars, however we do believe the fine is bull[expletive] and want to help anyway we can. So whatever is donated will be donated to the New England Patriots in help with the fine! As we venture with this, we will do frequent updates to show progression of this! If enough is made to make the travel, we will fly down there (on our own expenses) and deliver a check in person!"

An update to the account explained "if our donations are not accepted by The New England Patriots, we will donate the money to some great causes!" Among the mulled causes: relief projects, charities or even other GoFundMe accounts "that really could use some extra help."

The Wells report concluded "it is more probable than not [Brady] was at least generally aware of the inappropriate activities" of locker room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski in deflating the footballs, CNN said.




Obama dinged for 'sexist' comments on Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Are Obama's comment sexist? 

The National Organization for Women's president, Terry O'Neill, slammed President Obama for what she termed "sexist" comments against Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

First, Obama's comments, made in context of discussing with Yahoo his trade agreement and Warren's opposition to it: "The truth of the matter is that Elizabeth is, you know, a politician like everybody else. And you know, she's got a voice that she wants to get out there. And I understand that."

Obama also said Warren was "absolutely wrong" on her view of the proposed trade agreements.

O'Neill said the "clear subtext is that the little lady just doesn't know what she's talking about. I think it was disrespectful," the Hill reported.

O'Neill also said it seemed as if "the president was trying to build up his own trustworthiness on this issue by convincing us that Senator Warren's concerns are not to be taken seriously. But he did it in a sexist way."

The NOW president wasn't the only way to see it that way.

Sen. Sherrod Brown took umbrage at Obama's remarks, calling them disrespectful, and said the president ought not to have referred to Warren by her first name.

"I think the president was disrespectful to her by the way he did that," Politico reported. "I think that the president has made this more personal than he needed to. I know he disagrees. When he said that a number of us – not just Sen. Warren – but don't know what we're talking about, we're fighting the last war, a number of those phrases he used, I assume he wished he hadn't said them because he shouldn't have said them."

Brown also said he wasn't "going to get into more details [but] I think referring to her as first name, when he might not have done that for a male senator, perhaps? I've said enough."

Nun calls it: 'Islam is ISIS,' and whomever denies 'is a liar'

This nun has more guts than President Obama! (Obama: "Islamic terrorism? What Islamic terrorism?")

A nun who has seen the worst of the worst from ISIS terrorists says the United States could, if desired, work with allies to put a stop to the group's widespread savagery.

"There have been 12,000 kidnapped at the hands of ISIS – Yazidi alone," said Sister Hatune Dogan, who's worked with victims of ISIS for some time, the Christian Post reported. "What is going on there, what I was hearing, is the highest barbarism on Earth in the history until today."

She spoke of the ISIS mission – to convert – and maintained Islam was hardly a religion of peace.

"The mission ... of ISIS is to convert the world completely to the Islamic religion and bring them to Dar Al Salaam, as they call it," she said, to CBN News. "And Islam is not peace, please. Whoever says ISIS has no connectioon to Islam or something like this ... he's a liar. ISIS is Islam. Islam is ISIS."

And a final thought: "America today has the power that they can stop this disaster on the Earth with other Western countries. We know that in Islam, there is no democracy. Islam and democracy are opposite, like black and white."

Dogan was born in Turkey, but her family fled to Germany to escape persecution of their Syrian Orthodox Christian faith.

America going secular? Survey says – yes: Christian ranks fall as numbers of no-faith grow

Christianity is still the dominant religion in America, with seven in 10 claiming affiliation with the belief, but those touting no particular religion – the "nones" – are rapidly taking over the country.

The number of "nones" has grown to 56 million, a Pew Research Center study released Tuesday
found.

Pew conducted two surveys between 2007 and 2014 on religion in America and discovered the number of Americans who claim atheism, agnostism, or no particular faith grew from 16 percent to 23 percent. During that time frame, the number of Americans laying claim to Christianity fell from 78 percent to 71 percent.

Protestants are now only 47 percent of the country, a massive decrease in recent years, Pew found. By the numbers Protestants decreased by five million, to 36 millioin, between 2007 and 2014.

"[The findings] point to substantive changes" said Greg Smith, Pew's associated research director, in The Associated Press.

Among one noted change: Those with no religious affiliation or belief trend Democratic. Conversely, white evangelicals typically vote Republican, Pew said.

The survey of 35,000 people is called "America's Changing Religious Landscape" and has a margin of error of plus or minus 0.6 percent.

It notes: "The drop in the Christian share of the population has been driven mainly by declines among mainline Protestants and Catholics. Each of those large religious traditions has shrunk by approximately three percentage points since 2007. ... And the share of Americans who identify with non-Christian faiths also has inched up, rising 1.2 percentage points, from 4.7 percent in 2007 to 5.9 percent in 201. Growth has been especially great among Muslims and Hindus, albeit from a very low base."

Church under fire for anti-gay sign: 'Homosexuals must repent or go to hell'

A church in Jacksonville, Florida, is fielding a lot of fire for a sign officials posted out front warning of the perils of homosexuality: Repent or face the fire.

The First Conservative Baptist Church sign actually reads: "Homosexuals must repent or go to hell."

Some passersby are outraged, the local WKMG reported.


"I think it's very sad that people that claim to be Christians are hate-mongers," one resident who requested anonymity said. "And why can't people mind their own business and let people live their life the way they want to live it? They're not hurting anyone."

Others simply snap pictures and walk on by.
The pastor, Gene Youngblood, says he's only exercising his First Amendment right while furthering a core biblical belief.

In a written statement, he said: "Because we love people (yet, as directed in scripture to hate the sin), we therefore want to warn them of the coming judgment of God on the sin of homosexuality (and any other sin that is NOT repented of). It is my sincere prayer that perhaps 'ONE' practicing homosexual will have read our sign and will REPENT before it is too late and they are cast into HELL. HELL is a real place and anyone not believing in the reality of HELL will not change the temperature of the FLAMES a single degree."


Subway worker fired for cheering dead cops: 'Two police officers shot ... GOT EM'

You have to be pretty sick in your soul to high-five cold-blooded killers ...

A Subway worker in Laurel, Mississippi, was fired after her bosses discovered she posted vicious messages on Facebook in support of the cold-blooded killings of two police officers.

"This behavior is unacceptable & does not represent our brand's values & ethics," Subway tweeted out Sunday night, in response to the massive outcry over the employees Twitter postings. "The franchise has terminated the employee."

Sierra "C-Babi" McCurdy wrote of the killings of Benjamin Deen, 34, and Liquori Tate, 25, on Facebook: "2 police officers were shot in hattiesburg tonight ... GOT EM."

She also wrote: "We can turn this bxtch into Baltimore real quick....Police take away innocent people lives everyday now & get away w/ it, [expletive] them...no mercy."

Social media posters called for a boycott against Subway, Fox News reported. Others simply expressed outrage.

"Wow. This piece of trash was celebrating the death of two policemen in Hattiesburg," one tweeted.

Another called the employee "a disgusting animal," the New York Post reported.

Subway also said in an email to the Clarion-Ledger: "This kind of behavior is unacceptable and does not represent the values and ethics of our brand. The unfortunate choice of one individual should not reflect on the more than 400,000 honest, hardworking Sandwich Artists worldwide. The franchisee has terminated the employee, effective immediately."

Ben Carson touts greatness of God: 'I did begin to understand early in life the incredible power of prayer'

It was a good speech ...

Ben Carson, who recently declared his candidacy for the White House, told a packed National Day of Prayer room he learned at an early age that God was great, that He heard prayers and that He blessed individuals and nations steeped in humility.

"My mother was a prayer warrior, she believed God was the answer to any problem," Carson said, during his special guest appearance at the Thursday event on Capitol Hill.

And one problem she sought answer to was Carson's "terrible" grades and study habits. God's answer? Carson said he didn't like it, but had no choice but to abide.

"She made [my brother and me] turn off the TV and made us read two books a week and submit to her weekly book reports ... which she couldn't read but we dind't know that," he said, to audience laughter.

He then described his mother as akin to the media-dubbed "Mom of the Year," the yellow-shirted woman shown in a video chasing and smacking her protesting son in the streets of Baltimore.

"That was my mother, the Baltimore mom," Carson said.

He then spoke of the anger issues he had to overcome as a youth, as well as the subpar study habits that almost saw him flunk chemistry in college and lose out on his medical career.

He said he prayed to God: "Would you please tell me what it is you really want me to do? Or preferably, perform a miracle."

Carson then said God did perform a miracle – He gave him a dream that led to his acing of the chemistry test. And shorly after, Carson's medical career made the media world sit up and take notice, characterizing his surgical saves as miraculous.

"I did begin to understand early in life the incredible power of prayer and our connection to God and what a difference it's made throughout my medical career," Carson said, noting the public cheers he received for his medical work. "But not for one moment do I believe it was me. I said to God early in my career, you be the neurosurgeon and I'll be the hands."

He said some who start their work in such humility "get the big head and He has to move on to somebody else."

Carson reminded listeners of the power of Jesus, quoting the Bible: "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me." And he also reminded how Founding Fathers believed in the power of prayer – and that our nation now needed to embrace those beginning roots once again.

"It is up to us who are the true believers now to stand up, to stand up to what we believe. to have the courage and the faith to get us through this difficult period," Carson said. "Part of the reason we're in this difficult period is because we're afraid to stand up ... and now the baton of freedom is in our hand. We have to make the decision: What are we willing to do to protect the future and our progeny?"

Carson, on Fox & Friends a few hours earlier, had stated similarly: "I told [the hosts] God is the source of all wisdom and the source of all knowldge and if one avails himself of that, then obviously they're going to be highly successful."

Baltimore chaos blamed on Jews: Flyer at public hearing faults funding for Israel for violence

This is just disgusting ...

A flyer distributed at a public hearing in Prince George's County in Maryland subtly placed the blame for the recent Baltimore violence and chaos on the Jewish people, saying if America didn't send so much money to Israel, there would be more for the siege-torn city.

"From Baltimore to Jerusalem It's the Same Game in 10 years. Chris Van Hollen and Ben Cardin sent 1.2 billion dollars of Maryland Federal taxpayer money to the Apartheid state of Israel to build schools, roads and other infrastructure while saying Maryland doesn't have the money to help develop our communities," the opening of the flyer read, the blog Israel Matzav reported.


It's not clear who circulated the flyer.

But Powerline blog says the memo then attacks what it refers to as the "Israel lobby," accusing it of splitting the vote from the black community to "ensure that Blacks don't get political power in the Senate."

The flyer also accused "apartheid" Israel of training law enforcement in the United States to "set up paramilitary police armies in minority neighborhoods."

Baltimore for days was embroiled in violence and mayhem, as community residents clashed with police after the death of Freddie Gray. Six officers have since been charged with murder, assault, manslaughter and  other offenses.
