    WASHINGTON - FOX 5 was the first to report D.C. police were tweeting about an unusually high number of missing children. According to city officials, there is not an uptick in missing persons cases, but community members remain frustrated. On Wednesday night, a town hall-style meeting was held at Excel Academy Public Charter School in Southeast D.C., which was hosted by Ward 8 Councilmember Trayon White. Hundreds of people packed the room for this meeting while there were many others who could not even get in the door. The heart of this forum – what is going on and what...

    The Washington Post ^ | March 6, 2017 | Robert Thomson
    Every once in a while — and perhaps especially now, if we’re really going to talk about a trillion-dollar infrastructure program — we need to revisit the basics: “This is probably a column-length question, but what are the solutions to traffic congestion in the D.C. region?” That reasonable question came in during the midst of last Monday’s online discussion about whether traffic conditions would be improved if everyone just went faster. (In fact, we would not all be better off if you’d just go as fast as the driver behind you wants.) What are we really hoping to achieve when...

    If you’re a liberal these days, you may have trouble keeping up with all of the new actions coming out of the Trump White House which enrage you.

On that last point you can now add one more to the list. The evil ownership of Taylor Gourmet, a local chain of hoagie shops around the Beltway, has gone too far and drawn the ire of progressive activists.

The daughter of president-elect Donald Trump will continue to play a role in his administration as she leaves her native New York for the nation's capital. Trump's new residence is situated in the city's Kalorama neighborhood, an area that will ring familiar to those who've followed the Obamas' next move—it's where the current First Family will be living after they move out of the White House. Incredibly, Trump will be living less than two blocks away, as Washington Fine Properties agent William F.X. Moody confirmed to The Washingtonian. While...

However, I’m not sure how many of you realize just how much destruction the sectarian left inflicted upon our society during the 1960s and the ensuring decade. That’s why this blog post, which explores another book about this tumultuous chapter in American history, is so fascinating. Although I’m not sure I agree that we are on the same trajectory as the baby boomers, there are some unsettling...

This means that officers can turn the cameras on when they want to arrest somebody, but they will be unable to capture what...

    In September, D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser introduced the Homeless Services Modernization Amendment Act, in order to update and improve the 2005 Homeless Services Reform Act. The proposed legislation would now require homeless individuals seeking shelter to provide proof of residency, to ensure that District residents receive priority. Ironically, the city has taken the exact opposite approach to the issue of illegal immigration. Mayor Bowser announced this week that she has pledged $500,000 in taxpayer money for a grant program to help illegal-immigrant residents in deportation proceedings, among other services. Interestingly enough, there seems to be no requirements for such...

I will do everything humanly possible to stop any plans from the Obama administration to put Syrian refugees in Mississippi. The policy of bringing these individuals into the country is not only misguided, it is extremely dangerous. I’ll be notifying President Obama of my decision today to resist this potential action." “[We have taken] none so far, so certainly we can...

    A man who said he was investigating a conspiracy theory about Hillary Clinton running a child sex ring out of a pizza place fired an assault rifle inside the Washington, DC, restaurant on Sunday, injuring no one, police and news reports said. Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Aquita Brown said police received a call Sunday afternoon about a male with a weapon on Connecticut Avenue, in an affluent neighborhood of the nation’s capital. Edgar Maddison Welch, 28, of Salisbury, North Carolina, walked in the front door of Comet Ping Pong and pointed a firearm in the direction of a restaurant employee,...

    In Mr. Pence’s New D.C. Neighborhood, Not Exactly The Welcome Wagon By Ian Shapira. December 3. In the affluent Washington neighborhood of Chevy Chase, the tinsel, poinsettias and Christmas trees are competing for attention this holiday season with an unusual house decoration: gay pride rainbow flags. When news filtered out in late November that Vice President-elect Mike Pence was temporarily moving into the white colonial with green shutters on Tennyson Street NW — in the heart of Chevy Chase, a liberal Democratic stronghold — neighbors decided to greet the Republican interloper with polite protest: rainbow flags flapping from their homes....

    It wasn't too long ago that the novel The Hunger Games was all the rage, along with its bestselling sequels, films based on the novels, etc. As one might expect, left and right showed up on television and in op-ed pages with voluminous commentary about how Suzanne Collins's tales were either about the soul-crushing cruelty of big government, or big business's exploitation of the little guy. Readers can imagine which side of the debate right and left were on. The corrupt and hateful capital city in the novel was the epicenter of government or capitalism depending on one's ideology. The...

    Washington, D.C. Imam Abdul Alim Musa discussed the results of the U.S. presidential election in his November 18 Friday sermon at the Al-Islam Mosque in the city. The Zionists have "created a 'Hitlerian' environment in the U.S," said Imam Musa. He accused "the Zionists" of carrying out the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center and framing the Muslims, and of treating the Palestinians "exactly like the Nazis treated the Europeans." The sermon was posted on the YouTube channel of Imam Musa's As-Sabiqun organization. The Arkansas-born imam is the director and founder of As-Sabiqun and of the Islamic Institute of...

    Not exactly a five-star town On the heels of what seemed to be the ultimate insult - the voters’ rejection of the political class via the election of Donald Trump - it apparently now gets even worse for the Beltway crowd. We’ve already heard that Melania and Barron Trump will not move into the White House immediately because the Trumps don’t want to disrupt Barron’s schooling in New York. That’s got a few people out of sorts, but for the most part people don’t begrudge a decision based on what’s best for a kid. But now we’re hearing rumblings that...

    In an article for Sunday’s New York Times that bordered on parody, reporter Jason Horowitz touted concerns from Washington D.C. liberals that the incoming Trump administration would sap the nation’s capital of its culture: “What the effect on Washington will be when Donald J. Trump moves into the White House is hard to predict. But many Washingtonians fear the worst.” No surprise, the leading critic was former Democratic D.C. mayor Vincent Gray, who warned: “I’m worried about people not wanting to come here because of the image they have of the Trump administration.” Horowitz added: “Mr. Gray said he worried...
