Looks like we have to be the memory keeper of this county!

We will not allow candidates to gaslight the voters!

Seems like the common theme of some of Republican candidates is to pretend they are much more moderate than they actually are. This being Maryland, some of these folks are smart enough to realize that if they want to win an election around these parts they have to clean up their act! But oh no, no, no… we won’t let that happen.

No way!

OFFENDER #1 : MICHAEL (WHO NOW PREFERS MIKE) HOUGH!

An alert reader let us know that Hough recently cleaned up his social media in an attempt to get everyone to buy into the farcical notion that he’s some kind of friendly moderate. WRONG! Let us submit these facts to a candid world:

He so very bravely posted his NRA rug the day after a bunch of children were shot at Marjorie Douglass High School!
He sponsored a bill to ban abortions at the time of conception. (Notice Parrott’s name on there because he’s running for Congress)
No comment needed.
He’s the Chief of Staff (Cindy thinks this means secretary, but. more on that later) for a WV ethics violating carpet-bagger who posts things like that.

And he has a very questionable record in the Maryland General Assembly. Check out this article we previously wrote about him:

It’s a real treat!

OFFENDER #2: DAN COX

Now Dan doesn’t consistently keep his crazy tucked in, after all he’s full MAGA and regulating emotions is not their strong suit. However, he’s been trying ,through his social media, to play the part of a normal person who cares about everyday Marylanders. What a load of:

Let us present the following for the record:

Mr. Homeschooler literally has no idea what goes on in public schools. His only goal would be to destroy them.
Foreign policy is not his forte.
MAGA may be added to DSM-6 when it is released.

Let’s not forget he was condemned for comparing the expansion of mental health services to the Holocaust on Holocaust Remembrance Day:

And finally take some time to read all we’ve written about him over the years, it’s really shocking he’s gotten as far as he has.

OFFENDER #3: CINDY ROSE

Now, unlike the other two, Cindy really doesn’t care about her image, facts, reliability, stability, intelligence, data, success…sorry we got off track. But she did delete something recently that we immediately called her out on Facebook for, and we are not going to let this one go:

In case you missed the discussion on her post, she claimed the Chief of Staff of the FCPS legal department is a secretary. The same job title that Michael Hough holds.

Let’s see what else the hate slate has been up to since it isn’t knocking on doors or reaching out to voters.

These press releases are always a real treat for us! Not only are they always a grammatical mess, they also exemplify the term “hand the idiot the microphone”. We encourage people to call Mark since they put his number out.

Here’s another recent gem:

We all know who needs to stay away from our kids!
No where on this page!

Make sure to tell all of your friends and neighbors about these folks. We need to remember that not everyone pays as much attention to what goes on around here as we do. Having any of these folks sully our elective offices would be disastrous for our state and our county.

Alright people, Hough says this is very serious business!

Actually it isn’t, it’s pretty damn funny.

So, Michael Hough did not buy up all the possible domain names that people would possibly search for if they were in the middle of a drunken stupor and wanted to donate some money to his campaign. But, someone else did. And it’s very serious business so you SHOULD NOT look up this website and should be the appropriate amount of disappointed that Michael Hough expects you to be!

By the way there is no evidence that Jessica’s campaign had anything to do with this.
Except we are not because it’s just hilarious!

So, there’s much to unpack here, but we can do it quickly. Despite being the right hand man of the carpetbagger and ethics violator, Alex Mooney, Hough has no idea what he’s doing on the internet. Secondly, is he really afraid that his supporters will get confused and accidentally donate to Jessica because it’s somehow not clear that the donation goes to Jessica? He must think his supporters are really pretty dumb. The link now goes to a rick rolled video, which is funny, but not as funny as the original.

Guess who else didn’t buy up all the domains? Dan Cox. So you must not go to either one of these two websites because this is really some serious business that violates all the ethics!

DanCoxForMaryland.com

CoxforMaryland.com

Isn’t it great when two people who don’t know how to play the game get so outraged over their own mistakes?

In case you didn’t see it on our Facebook page, be sure to lay eyes on this little jewel from the Dan Cox campaign. Threatening to jail educators is number one on the fascist/dictator to do list when they come into power.

Hail Mary, let’s talk about the primary!

It’s been so busy here at Yokel headquarters!

All the votes from the primary election are in and now the work begins! We knocked out the entire 2nd rate hate slate, but the spirit of John Wilkes Booth still runs through 3/4ths of the OG hate slate.

He was useless just like Cindy, Nancy, and Olivia would be on the school board.
We do have to say we liked that David Brooks knocked Mark Joannides down a notch, because someone needed to! We all need to regroup now and make sure that 4 sane candidates make it up. For we cannot afford to have one of these backwards talkers on our precious school board.

Something is askew in District 5! Instead of the local Republikkins letting team normal, in the form of Michael Blue, continue on they put forth someone who thinks that Kirby is a hero.

The lack of judgement is astounding. Guess Michael Blue didn’t stroke Kirby’s ego well enough so he put this kid’s signs all over his trucks. And look at precious little Billy. I wonder how Pence feels about his name on that shirt these days.

Karl Bickel won the Democratic nod for what we call the High Sheriff around these parts. We’ve written quite a bit about the current High Sheriff, but feel free to revisit here.

It’s past time for this one to go!

Jessica will go up against the Chief of Staff for carpet bagger Alex Mooney who is currently under investigation for various ethics violations. We recently told the tale of how he didn’t want to raise the teenage marriage rate to 17 because he still believes in child brides. So you know we all need to rally behind Jessica on this one.

Never forget that he posted this the day after the Marjorie Stoneman Douglass shooting.

Our two Frederick County GOP gubernatorial candidates faced off with the dumbest one winning. From this concession post, we don’t think that Kelly is going to be backing him in the general!

He who must not be named! Keep an eye on our social media for every Monday we will post a new Dan Cox article from our extensive archives.

There’s of course many more races, and we promise to get to them. We must keep up our momentum and make sure that we keep our county government both sane and functional!

Once upon a midnight dreary, as I pondered weak and weary, never will I wonder why I didn’t cast my vote!

We are in a bit of a dramatic mood this evening!

Tomorrow is the last day to vote or to drop off your mail in ballot. We don’t engage much in making primary endorsements EXCEPT when it comes to the BOE race.

8 candidates get through after tomorrow. Let’s make sure we get as many hate slate candidates off the ballot as possible!

There’s been some good ole Republican drama that reminds us of the Great Kirby meltdown of 2018 going on lately. (Which is really worth reading again because Cindy Rose makes an appearance–she’s like Michael Myers, no matter how many times you knock her down, she’s always back up and scary as ever!) Like 2018 there are two factions. One is on the side of Cindy’s Original Hate Slate, on the other side is a group promoting the 2nd Rate Hate Slate which includes Moms for Liberty candidates and other people who like to make scenes at public libraries. Apparently this new group, who go by the incredibly ironic name “Voices for Freedom,” put together a list with a slate called “Friends of The Right Side.” This list was allegedly to be distributed in order to give voters a guide on who they should vote for, in the best interest of the GOP of course! Guess who wasn’t on the list? Cindy Rose et al! And rumor has it they were not too pleased! Heather Fletcher once again used some questionable judgment when she posted this:

But it wasn’t a misinterpretation since sources have told us that this list had language like, “Vote for only the candidates listed as it helps the GOP overall.” Not exactly the note any of us have written to ourselves as we entered the polls!

Why break the long-standing ritual of local Republicans eating their own? It’s a tradition!

And it’s so much fun to watch!

If you haven’t already voted and need to know where to go click here.

We’ll report to you when we know the outcomes. Make sure you do your part!

We can do something! Local elections matter and have consequences.

How did we let this happen folks? Those of you older than 40 know that things weren’t always like this. We didn’t always have this obsessive of a gun culture. There was a time when we wouldn’t have dreamed of allowing regular citizens possess these types of weapons. It all comes down to greed. When gun manufacturers’ market dried up in the the U.S. and foreign military markets ,they turned to the American public. And some of you lapped up their advertising manipulations and scare tactics to the point that this country is broken. This has nothing to do with the Second Amendment anymore (read the whole thing: the parts about well regulated and militia count just has much as the part the NRA posts in their entry way) , it’s all about an easily manipulated American public who helped ( and continue to help) unscrupulous, greedy gun companies get rich. It’s all so stupid and sad.

We’ve been thinking a lot about what we can do to change things. We keep wondering if this will be our George Floyd moment when it comes to gun control. It’s not as though a majority of us don’t already believe change needs to come. Just look at these polling results that historian Heather Richardson recently posted:

A Politico/Morning consult poll out Wednesday showed “huge support” for gun regulations. It showed that 88% of voters strongly or somewhat support background checks on all gun sales, while only 8% strongly or somewhat oppose such checks. That’s a net approval of +80.

Preventing gun sales to people who have been reported to police as dangerous by a mental health provider is supported by 84% of voters while only 9% oppose it, a net approval of +75.

Seventy-seven percent of voters support requiring guns to be stored in a safe storage unit, while only 15% oppose such a requirement, a net approval of +62.

A national database for gun sales gets 75% approval and 18% disapproval, a net approval rate of +57.

And take a look at this clip from conservative Supreme Court justice Warren Berger regarding the 2nd Amendment:

So what’s stopping us? First of all we need to stop electing people to office who hold unreasonable and uncompromising viewpoints on gun ownership. And that’s where we come in. We did a deep dive on some of our local candidates and their views on gun control. We discovered more than what we set out to look for, and we’ll share that with you as well.

Let’s start with our old pal Cindy Rose:

We know it’s a lot to take in, and man oh man she is so wrong on so many things, but here’s one more hot take for you to remember her by:

😳🧐🤯

Let’s move on. Running alongside Cindy is Nancy Allen. Look at the hot garbage we found on that one!

Next under the microscope is Tiffany Nobel, a school board candidate who thinks arming teachers is the solution to this issue.

It would take hours, if not weeks, to sort through all the pro-gun stuff on Dan Cox’s page, so we’ll just send you a little taste.

There are those on the other side of Dan who would like to see him win the primary because all polling shows that he would get trounced by whomever wins the Democratic nomination. And while we think that is true, we still wouldn’t be able to stomach the fact that he even garnered that much support. (If you are behind on how terrible Dan Cox is, just click here.)

Last but not least is NRA darling, Michael Hough. The man who is running unopposed in the Republican primary and thinks we should let him be our next County Executive.

This was posted in response to someone else letting the world know how insensitive he is to gun violence. It’s also nice to know that he subscribes to the ridiculous notion that Soros and Bloomberg are paying everyone off and couldn’t have possibly come to these conclusions on their own. Imagine how this ability to discuss other ideas would transfer to our top executive office.

Independents please don’t forget to vote in the Board of Education primary on July 19th. Here’s a few links to give your our thoughts on this upcoming election.

Don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom pic on that one.

Make sure all your friends and families pay attention to our local elections. Just imagine a world in which Dan Cox is governor, Michael Hough is our County Executive, and Cindy et al. run our schools. It’s enough to give you nightmares.

Who NOT to put on the school board. Your Yokel voter primer!

This is how things will be if we let these folks onto the school board.

We know there’s a lot going on in the world today.

Amongst the chaos that is the world today, we still need to remember how important it is to vote smartly when it comes to our local affairs. The school board election may not seem that important, but it is gravely important. The school board helps determine what is taught, what books are used, which books are banned, and regulations that determine what kind of treatment and rights students and staff have in public school buildings. They literally help shape our children’s future. What’s more important than that?

If you’ve been a frequent reader, you know we aren’t a fan of Cindy Rose. (If you are new click this link for more info). We’ll touch on her and her slate, but here’s a couple of more pieces of evidence as to why her logic “skills” would not be a welcome addition to our school board:

This morning Cindy and her slate (who we will discuss soon) decided to pen an LTE to the Frederick News Post about why the search for the new superintendent should wait until after the next election. Here’s our favorite part:

On second thought, maybe that’s exactly why they are in a hurry? What better way to sabotage a joyful, hope-filled, student-focused and traditional vision for Frederick County’s students, parents and teachers than to saddle them with a progressive superintendent who may not be in lock-step with a new majority’s vision?

And so do the rest of us!

And this is all so rich coming from a group of people who belong to a party that justified Mitch McConnell’s blocking Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court while rushing through one in the last few weeks of Trump’s administration.

This LTE reminded us that we need to get to the rest of the candidates. We did some research, and since we adhere to the philosophy of letting people show us who they are (and then believing it), we will let their words and pictures speak for themselves.

We’ll begin with the rest of Cindy’s new hate slate

First up, homeschool parent Mark Joannides:

The good of humanity? Locking who up?
And you received your medical degree from where? Why should we believe you?!

We know this is a lot to take in, but there’s more…

Nancy Allen, who doesn’t appear to have had any interaction with the FCPS until now also has some thoughts:

And the last one to grace Cindy’s bandwagon, Olivia Angolia, whose qualifications are that she used to be a student:

Nope!
The current nominee is very qualified, morons.

https://www.reuters.com/business/healthcare-pharmaceuticals/ivermectin-ineffective-preventing-severe-covid-19-study-2022-02-18/

Have you caught the theme with these folks?

There’s still three more to go. The next on our list is the first defector from Cindy’s slate, Ashley Nieves. Let’s visit what she thought was suitable to mail out to Frederick County voters:

Next up are two candidates that are out walking around with Ashley. The first one is Tiffany Noble a person who associates with a Florida based group, Moms for Liberty. The local chapter of this group posted a few things asking all “Mama Bears” to join their call.

We feel the need to call out this Mama Bear tripe. All of your Lady Yokels are moms. We all feel the need to stand up for our kids when necessary, but more importantly teach them to advocate for themselves. This Mama Bear vibe gives the impression that my kid’s needs are more important than yours. It’s aggressive, combative, and serves no real purpose other than to make someone feel as though they are being a good parent. The rest of us are not impressed.

Let’s leave the Mama Bear stuff with the bears

Tiffany Noble is our Moms for “Liberty” candidate. Here’s her philosophy:

Not one? We know for sure that isn’t true. So, our first introduction to her is a lie. And how is it a good look to call teachers and staff bullies? Good luck with that sista!
Another statement with no proof!

Last one on our list (for now) is April Montgomery:

We are going to zoom in on the next screenshot so you can really see how she put a Confederate flag collar on her dog. And yes, that date stamp is 2021, not 1921.
We don’t even know what to say about this.

We’ll leave you with a post she made this morning to round it all out:

Trust people when they show you who they are. We’ve provided commentary, but edited nothing.

Don’t worry, happy fun time post of who you should trust your children’s future to is on the way soon!

What a great time to be #TeamRussia!

We have two local office runners who feel Team Russia is the side to take! First up, insurrectionist Dan Cox! Of course it’s no surprise that he falls on the side of Trump who called Putin’s aggressive actions genius. Behold:

We are always amazed by his poor writing skills.

Here’s what he’s liking on Twitter today!

Perennial school board candidate has many green thoughts about the situation, and of course it’s ignorant as all get out.

Oh it’s exactly what it seems dummy.
Uh.. God the world this woman lives in.
What an intelligent, classy, and well formed thought!
Sigh.

Stay vigilant folks! We cannot let people with poor judgment into our political arena!

Your Yokel 2021 Countdown!

See if you can find the common theme!

A little grim… but our art reflects the times!

It’s that time of year when we recap the top ten posts of year! There’s a few people on our list that you really need to stay on top of this year. If they slither their way into any decision making authority, things will get dramatically worse around here. That’s a guarantee you can take to the bank!

In the #10 position is a post entitled “How low will we go with Cindy Rose on the board?” It’s a question we should seriously ponder before heading out to that voting booth next year.

Next on the #9 spot on our list was a rare opportunity to write about the three amigos: Shreve, Delauter, and Young. We don’t get these opportunities very often, but when they write a ridiculous LTE we can’t just sit back and say nothing.

Our number 8 post proves we are soothsayers when we predicted just how crazy things were going to get up here (and if you’ve been following us for awhile you know the gravity of that statement!).

In our #7 spot is a post we wrote regarding our feelings about the January 6th insurrection. There’s lots of screenshots from our local characters in this post so you can remind yourself just how terrible a lot of these people are.
In our 6th most popular post of the year, we try to follow Dan Cox’s logic, though we know by now what a worthless endeavor that is. Lately Dan has been complaining on Twitter how he’s been put in Facebook jail for sharing ridiculous videos. How old is he again?
We also feel the need to stick this in here again:
#neverforget

In the 5th spot is the theme we told you to look for. It’s when we warned y’all that Cindy was going to try for the 4th time to run for the school board. Stay alert folks!

In our number 4 space is our post regarding Blaine’s attempt at a write in campaign. Thankfully only a smidgen of the city’s voters fell for this farce.
In our 3rd most popular post we showed you how we suffer for you by keeping on top of the threat that Cindy is to our local school board. Lift a toast to us!
#2 circles back to Blaine’s inane idea that he should be mayor, while of course outsourcing the job to someone else. Just when you think you’ve heard them all!
And in our most popular post of the year, we once again sound the alarm over Cindy Rose et al.’s campaign to take over our education system. Make sure to share this one with all interested parties.

That’s a wrap on this year folks! Next year is a big local election year around here so be prepared for some drama! We will be here to see you through it.

What is this we hear about Roger Wilson?

In a recent Frederick News Post article your Lady Yokels were horrified to see this news:

Roger Wilson and Katie Nash have topped the fundraising numbers in the first round of campaign finance reports in the Frederick city race for mayor and alderman.

Wilson led the mayoral candidates with $15,815 raised through the first deadline of Aug. 12,…..

We know Sparky, it’s appalling.

There was a time that we supported Roger Wilson. We agreed with his politics and thought we was a fine and dandy sort of fella. Then came some news:

The four-page report disclosed Tuesday night by the city of Frederick was based in part on interviews with eight women who described interactions with Wilson. It found “sufficient evidence to conclude that Alderman Wilson relied on his position as an Alderman to gain the acquaintance and trust of women in the community” and that Wilson “then used a pretense of helping these women as an opportunity to request that they engage in sexual relationships with him.”

However, the investigation, conducted by Baltimore-based lawyer Karen Kruger, concluded that “Mr. Wilson’s conduct does not constitute legally actionable sexual harassment under State or federal law.

“Sufficient evidence to conclude that Alderman Wilson relied on his position as an Alderman to gain the acquaintance and trust of women in the community”! With those words any support from us flew out the window. It didn’t help that on his Alderman Facebook page he decided to ignore the first paragraph and went with the second as a very weak example of vindication.

At long last, we have the conclusion of the four-month, City-sponsored independent investigation. The report states: “Alderman Wilson’s conduct during his term as an elected official of the City did not constitute legally actionable sexual harassment under State or Federal law.” The recommendations? “No formal action is requested.” I am not surprised by this conclusion. This was the expected outcome. However, despite this vindication, the damage to me and my family remains. Even after this costly investigation, the report contains no actual details of what I allegedly did, or the identity of any accusers. There is nothing included but more vague allegations against my character originating from the MacShane family. However, despite that, the report’s conclusions of my innocence are what ultimately matter.

We know there’s a lot going on in the world these days, but we beg you City of Frederick residents, consider another candidate. There are three others! Check out this page for more details. We have it on very good authority that Blaine Young has a Roger Wilson sign in his front yard. That’s all some of us need to know.

Dear Blaine Young…….

We are very sorry to inform you that Blaine wrote another LTE that sullied the good pages of the FNP. In a very pathetic attempt to be clever, he pretended to write a letter to Santa listing his gripes against the current City of Frederick administration! Glad to see he’s in the holiday spirit!

“I really don’t have time for this nonsense”!

Here’s a few of our favorite exerts:

4. Please add blue safety light phones in some of those areas as the community college has done.
5. Please get smokers to not throw their cigarette butts on the ground. It is out of control.
6. Please sprinkle some economic magic dust on the Golden Mile and the old Frederick Towne Mall property.

8. Please make us a pet-friendly city with responsible pet owners like other cities. Pet owners spend huge amounts of money.

We can’t believe we have to talk about the blue safety lights again. Yes, they were really useful in 1992 when cell phones didn’t exist, but not so much today. Are we to believe that “Mr. Let’s Sell the Government Off” to private vendors is going to go all Big Brother and follow smokers around to see where they put their butts? What is his proposal to stop this? Perhaps he missed the news about the Old Frederick Towne Mall property being turned into a huge entertainment center, which isn’t surprising at all. It’s so much easier to complain than to actually pay attention or do any research. Finally, we Lady Yokels love our pets, but we don’t even want to know what he wants to do with our tax money so he can traipse all over town with these guys:

We are sorry to have to show this to you folks, but someone sent it to us and if we have to see it, so do you.
