Property crime and theft continue to rise in MoCo. Please be safe. Just within the last week:
- An illegal immigrant stole a police service truck and crashed it into cars and people in Prince Georges and Montgomery, ending with a crash in White Oak. ICE is demanding he be remanded to them.
- A group of persons terrorized the employees and patrons of three CVS drug stores in Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Chevy Chase Lake, sweeping items off the shelves and stealing in bulk, time after time. The employees were threatened.
Please be safe, the county government is not on the side of the police so be aware of your environment. As more and more illegal immigrants come into our area they become a challenge for our housing, food resources, the school system and tax resources. While most simply want a better life, many are fleeing authorities in their home countries.

Mayor Muriel Bowser of the District of Columbia allowed BLM protesters to paint "Defund the Police" in front of the White House. The DC City Council passed defund and disrespect laws to hamstring the police from doing their jobs. Crime went through the roof.
MoCo County Exec Marc Elrich forbade the police to post the "Thin Blue Line" flag in their offices, took away the School Resource Officers, and forbade the police to work with ICE to deport criminal illegals. Members of the County Council to this day write and rewrite rules to tie the hands of police saying they might be "disrespectful" to criminals. Murders, thefts, carjackings and violent crimes have spiked, and a sense of well being has declined.
This is what our elected leaders keep doing to us. Here's a quote from one of our readers:
"I am for more funding of the police and much tougher laws for criminals than we have now!
It is due to these lax laws and defunding the police that we are all in shock about the crime rate going up at such an alarming rate in Montgomery County and the whole metro area!"
HELP THE MOCO POLICE DEPARTMENT
Marc Elrich’s Executive Order tied the hands of law enforcement. In 2019 County Executive Marc Elrich signed an executive order prohibiting local law enforcement from cooperating with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Soon thereafter, we organized and hundreds showed up in protest led by Larry O’Connor and Vince Coglianese of WMAL, Sabastian Gorka, Michelle Malkin and families of MCPD officers killed by convicted felons illegally in the United States. MCPD officers faced away from us to protect us as County officials and those they hired lined up across the street.

Policies have consequences. WJLA reports that so far this year Montgomery County has failed to honor 119 detainers and it is only February. Recently, reporter Brad Bell accompanied ICE agents as they attempted to arrest a non-citizen, convicted felon who had been the subject of an ICE detainer for deportation but was released from a local jail after 18 months.

REMOVING YOUR CHOICES - TAKING YOUR MONEY
We’re used to the County Executive and County Council knowing what’s best for us – even if we disagree. But with an arcane idea called BEPS (Building Energy Performance Standards), they want to eliminate choice and spend Granny into the poorhouse.
Under the guise of global warming, they want to decree that you may only have one source of energy, to cook, to heat, to cool and run your car. It’s an all-electric future they’ve declared for us, no matter whether you want it or not.
Apart from the Feds and the State mandating that your car or truck or school bus or delivery truck must be electric, they’re mandating that folks who live in high-rises must all convert to electric. Yep, if you live in a big building built years ago it’s got to convert from gas or oil to electric, at a huge cost to each owner, or if a rental building the owner will pass that cost to you. Bye to your warm heat, bye to your gas stove. Bye to the money in your wallet.
