WHEN SHERIFFS, I.C.E. COOPERATE

Dealing with Illegals Not Difficult

By Chuck Jenkins

(Jenkins is the respected three-term Frederick County, Md., Sheriff)

 

I’ve been Frederick County sheriff for nine years. We’re located about one hour northwest of Washington right here. It’s a beautiful county, beautiful community, population of about 240,000 people. I’ve been in law enforcement 25 years locally. I sit on two committees of the National Sheriffs Association, the Homeland Security Committee and also the Immigration and Border Security Committee.

I can speak with some authority to the issues and give a real good local perspective. I’m a strong proponent of law enforcement cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).… Read More

YOU’RE KIDDING, TRUMP versus SANDERS

Is Any Coronation Talk Off?


 By Harry M. Covert 

That Donald Trump! That Bernie Sanders! That political landscape! There’s no escaping facts that the chattering classes, partisan politicos and money givers are in awe, unknowing as to how to deal with the current state of affairs. 

Mr. Trump

All of the presidential watchers simply are ignorant of how the money mogul and the “independent” socialist have grabbed public attention. Traditionalists, so-called progressives, purported middle of the roaders and right wingers have been caught with jaws japing. 

Let’s face it. Most people thinking about the 2016 presidential competition assumed the event was really over and done with, that H.… Read More

THE PRATTLING OF SOUTHERN HATERS

Who Skews America?


By Harry M. Covert 

A Novel Victory

I am in no way a racist. I am a lover of history, good, bad or indifferent.

I was all set to ignore all of the hand-wringing about the battle flag. Then I saw the headline and story, “How the South Skews America. We’d be less violent, more mobile and in general more normal if not for Dixie.”

The above writing came from a Texas writer the other day, published by Politico. Now this is an example of things to come from those reprobates who hate everything southern.

Little by little those who hate the south are going to keep on prattling about the meanness and hatefulness and religiosity of those from the south.… Read More

Of Course, the Language is American!

American Spoken Here

 By Harry M. Covert

           Changes popular or not seem to be invading all over and the majority of citizens are like lambs to the slaughter. The latest challenge involves spoken language. The official language of Frederick County, the state of Maryland and the rest of the states of union is American.

           Of course it is. Why not? Most citizens are monolingual. From the time they come into the world bawling they don’t hear “buenos dias nino” or “guten morgen kind.” It is rather obvious that amid the daily travels around these environs there are no signs extolling “American spoken here.” Nor are there symbols asking about other tongues such as Finnish, Czech, Dutch or Chinese, simplified or traditional.… Read More

A LOVE NOTE TO REMEMBER

 

Sweet Elocutions and Electronic Mail



 

By Harry M. Covert 

          Time is now to affirm, promise, pledge and swear – yes, swear – that no more politicians from Maryland will be jumping into the billion-dollar presidential fray.

          I have been receiving a number of “love notes” from those involved on the national scale. In all probability these missives are created, developed, printed and mailed by the same direct mail virtuoso.

Since the recent elocution by the O’Malley fellow the electronic mail hasn’t just been limited to the Democrats’ FLOTUS. I was quite taken by First Lady Michelle Obama’s salutation, “I love you Harry.” Yes, it was pleasant, sweet of course.

‘LET THE WORD GO FORTH . . .’

 Ready for Some High Volume Trials?


 

By Harry M. Covert 

          Those with news nose sensibilities rank high in getting a jump on monumental decisions by those in authority or their authoritarian positions. 

          Some may well recall the words of 44 years ago, “Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike.” They are apropos at this very time. 

          Lots of locals remember the recent Baltimore Troubles of a few weeks ago. Keeping count of the murder rate in the state’s largest city it has reached 43 in May. This is not a badge of honor.
