Baltimore 24 Year Old Shot Broad Daylight

As the fake news media continues to call President Donald Trump racist for shining a light on the horrifying situation on the ground in Baltimore, Maryland, a shocking new story of a 24-year-old murdered in the city in broad daylight has emerged through local media.

Police are currently investigating a shooting in West Baltimore that left a 24-year-old murdered in broad daylight earlier today, showing the decline of the once prosperous city.

CBS Baltimore reported:

Officers canvassed the area for potential suspects and victims. The officers discovered evidence of a shooting and received information that a possible victim left the area just before they arrived.

Shortly after, they were dispatched to an area hospital to investigate a walk-in shooting victim who was looking for treatment.

The 24-year-old was identified as the victim from Edmondson Avenue.

President Trump derided Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) for bashing President Trump’s border wall, noting that he has been a “brutal bully” over the wall “when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous.”

The president added that his “District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess”, and encouraged Cummings to spend more time in Baltimore to “clean up this very dangerous & filthy place.”

The mainstream media and Democrats quickly used these tweets to call President Trump racist, when even local media agreed with the president when he was running for office in 2016.

Big League Politics reported:

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.

Americans are also being reminded that only three months ago, the former Mayor of Baltimore fled the state amid federal raids over corruption charges. She later resigned from her office in disgrace.

Big League Politics will continue to provide coverage as more horrifying and unsettling stories come out of Baltimore.

Swamp Bureaucrats Try to Oust America First USAID appointee

Disgruntled bureaucrats.

Bureaucrats at a division of the U.S. Agency for International Development that focuses on conflict prevention are fuming about their new boss.

In fact, they’re so angry that they drafted a lengthy memo detailing their grievances with the aim of getting the Trump administration to take action on their behalf, according to a report by Politico.

The disgruntled officials’ 13-page memo singles out Pete Marocco, the head of USAID’s Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Stabilization.

A USAID official stated that a small group of veteran staffers drafted the memo in the bureau’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI). Marocco has voiced his skepticism towards a lot of programs this division runs, which is in line with the America First reluctance of embracing foreign aid programs.

The memo portrays Marocco as a micromanager who has thrown several wrenches into the bureau’s operations. In addition, the memo accuses Marocco of marginalizing employees and being vague about his orders that are allegedly difficult to implement. According to the complaint, “thousands of hours of staff time” have been “spent unnecessarily and unproductively.”

Furthermore, the complaint alleged that Marocco “has leveraged once-routine administrative processes to reopen previously-approved plans, interrogate and redirect country programs, halt movement on programs, procurements, and people, and inject uncertainty into daily operations and office planning.“ In addition, it contended that Marocco “has eschewed providing direction in writing or through other formal channels, and rarely sent guidance to teams directly implicated. Instead, he has conveyed orders and decisions, sometimes only orally, to individual staff … who then must attempt to relay this information as best they can to colleagues. This has inevitably generated significant confusion over intent and expectations, and made it difficult to confirm decisions or maintain adequate records.”

One of the more unheralded aspects of President Donald Trump’s ascendancy into the White House has been his skepticism towards the efficacy of foreign aid, which has traditionally been plagued with corruption. According to the Brookings Institute, the U.S. government spent roughly $39.2 billion on foreign aid in 2019, with very little results to show for it.

Overall, officials like Marcocco were appointed with the task of re-orienting USAID’s priorities, which ruffled many feathers.

For example, Marocco was against a $2 million extension of an OTI program in Ukraine that senior USAID and State Department officials werenin favor of. The proposal to extend the program has been sitting on Marocco’s desk waiting for the greenlight since he assumed the position in July, according to the complaint. On two occasions he has called for canceling this program and made a request to find out how much the cancellation process would cost. Politco reported that Marocco “hasn’t said what he would want to do instead with the money besides “do something ‘important’ like train and equip the military or police, or work on security sector reform,” according to the memo, which notes that the first suggestion is prohibited by law, while the second is not a USAID priority in Ukraine.”

It’s clear that Marocco is no swamp creature and does not believe in just doling out money to corrupt countries. An America First foreign aid policy would be one of minimal to no foreign aid, and people like Marocco make it easier for us to achieve that goal.
