From Del. Kathy Szeliga:
Tragedy – Terrible but could have been much worse
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with those who were wounded on the baseball field this week in DC as the Republicans were practicing for the annual congressional baseball game. By God’s grace, no one was killed by a crazed gunman who intentionally opened fire in an attempt to kill Republicans. House Majority White Steve Scalise has a long road of recovery ahead of him and we are thankful that he was not slain.
In a rare but much needed moment, Speaker Paul Ryan and Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi together proclaimed that an attack against one of their own was attack against all. How nice it is to see Congress standing together. We hope to see more of that going forward.
Shortly after the horrific shooting, Rep Claudio Tenney (R-NY) received an email saying, “one down, 216 to go…” promoting that all of the 217 Republicans should be shot!
It’s time for the Main Stream Media (MSM) to take control of the rhetoric coming from their broadcasts and publications. The lack of outrage, and even lack of coverage, by the MSM and Hollywood entertainers over a New York theater group performing a show depicting the assassination of President Trump is the case-in-point. While there was some criticism of the Kathy Griffin fake decapitation of President Trump, her tearful press conference wherein she claims to be a victim of the Trump family’s response was utterly ridiculous. The MSM and her fellow comedians, especially the late night shows, either ignored or excused that shameful phony apology press show by Griffin. The non-stop hatemongering is not helping to create constructive dialogue.
What happened to tolerance of other’s views and opinions as was so widely preached over the last 10 years? I hope to see the MSM change their tune.
AG Brian Frosh – Shameful Self-Promotion
Maryland AG Brian Frosh is using your tax dollars to sue President Trump under the premise that the Trump businesses are profiting from his presidency. Voters elected Donald Trump in large part because he is a successful businessman. No one expects The Trump businesses to close because he is President, and the thousands of employees certainly hope they don’t. President Trump has divested his interest in his companies and has turned over all decision-making authority. I wonder if AG Frosh has considered the national boycott movement against Trump family products, properties, and companies whose executives and board members actively support the president. NPR (National Public Radio) has given them a platform to spread their anti-Trump movement that has already reached millions of people.
What Maryland taxpayers, citizens, and residents need is for AG Frosh to turn his attention towards Maryland. Baltimore City is suffering under the highest murder rate, daily violent crime, and unprecedented serious violent juvenile crime. As the Attorney General, Brian Frosh controls the largest law practice in the state, he should be focusing his priorities on helping to solve this and other Maryland problems. Instead, Frosh is grandstanding on a national stage, attacking President Trump and then using the bully pulpit of his own office to raise his profile and money! Just days after a national press conference touting his lawsuit against President Trump, AG Frosh bragged about it in an email, started a political on-line petition, and also asked people to DONATE to his campaign. What hypocrisy!!
When the liberals in Annapolis expanded the powers of the Attorney General and then granted him an additional $1 million in tax dollars to sue Washington DC, we knew it was only a matter of time. I hate to say it, but I told you so.

The State of the State is Strong & Getting Stronger
Governor Hogan continues to lead Maryland in the right direction. Recently, his team produced a video with highlights of the first 2 years of the Hogan administration. If Larry Hogan can take Maryland from 49th to 11th in the US for in only 2 ½ short years, just think what he can do over the next 5 ½ years. Maryland and Marylanders are his first priority. Governor Hogan gets it.
