As the hyper partisan media attempts to paint President Donald Trump a racist for telling the truth about the situation in Baltimore, Maryland, more news continues to surface proving the president was right to describe the city as “infested” with rats as well as violence, crime, and illegal weapons.
A missile launcher was discovered by the Transportation Security Administration in a man’s luggage at the Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. It was later determined not to be a live weapon, but almost certainly is illustrative of the larger image of Baltimore.
Yahoo! News reported:
The Transportation Security Administration said in a statement that the military grade weapon was located in the man’s checked luggage at Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
TSA officers called airport police who found the man and detained him for questioning. The unidentified traveler said he was in the military and coming home from Kuwait. He said he wanted to keep the weapon as a souvenir.
Over the weekend, President Trump described the once prosperous city as “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess.”
….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

The mainstream media and Democrats colluded to use this tweet to accuse the president of overt racism, denying the horrifying facts on the ground in the once prosperous city.
However, prior to the hyper partisan politics of the Trump era, local media agreed with President Trump on the condition of the city.
Before the hyper-partisanship set in completely with the fake news media, the Baltimore Sun published an article declaring that Trump is correct about his assertion that Baltimore and other large Democrat-run cities are disaster zones.
The op/ed was written by Sean Kennedy at the Maryland Public Policy Institute in Nov. 2016, shortly after Trump was elected to the White House, admitting the problems with Baltimore that Trump brought up were in fact legitimate.
“Donald J. Trump is known for his hyperbole, but not all of his ideas are a stretch. Our inner cities are a “disaster,” as he said in the final presidential debate — and they should be officially declared so,” Kennedy wrote.
In fact, only three months ago the Mayor of Baltimore fled the city and the state as federal authorities conducted a criminal raid on her home. She allegedly engaged in illicit activity relating to sales of her children’s book.
Catherine Pugh, the Democrat mayor of Baltimore has reportedly fled the state of Maryland amid FBI and IRS raids on her home, and her office in City Hall.
“[N]o one has seen the mayor and her own spokesperson doesn’t know where she is even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia,” according to WJZ13. “However, a source tells WJZ however Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state.”
Her attorney reportedly did not reply to a comment request.
Citing health concerns, Pugh took an indefinite leave of absence just as an investigation was opened into her dealings selling children’s books.
It appears Democrats are completely willing to overlook crime, poverty, corruption, and massive piles of garbage and human waste on the streets if doing so will make President Trump look bad.
Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement
Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”
Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.
“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.
“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”
Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.
“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”
Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”
Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.
“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”
He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.
“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.
Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.
“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”
Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
