    We have flourished as a people because of our success in establishing self-government. But all of these results are predicated upon a law-abiding people. If our own country should be given over to violence and crime, it would be necessary to diminish the bounds of our freedom to secure order and self-preservation. ~President Calvin Coolidge, Memorial Day, 1927What if we just stopped paying taxes?Really. If our republic has now descended into a land of, by, and for illegal aliens, with law enforcement in major cities now refusing to enforce the laws of this land, then what is the recourse...

Allen alleges that three white classmates attacked her on the playground and pinned her down against a slide. “They put my hands behind my back, put a hand over my mouth and they tried to cut my hair,” said Allen.

    "The lawsuit is filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia. It says Fairfax’s character was defamed and says CBS intentionally inflicted emotional distress on him." "In addition, he believes former Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney attempted to use Tyson’s allegation against him for political purposes. All three are potential candidates for governor in 2021."

    It doesn’t get much more Northern Virginia than this. Traffic woes and construction delays are daily gripes on the local Facebook group, “Western Prince William Chatter.” Then Steve came along -- and brought joy to the group's 20,000-plus members. "It seems he is the light at the end of the tunnel when you're STUCK in that horrible traffic! Thanks for entertaining us Steve and for those calling him Bob, just no," one Facebooker wrote. Before WPWC members gave him a name, Steve was simply known as a rubber tire crane. He came to the Manassas area to lift 10 concrete...

    Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax is planning to take legal action against the women accusing him of sexual assault and is arguing that the allegations were made to do “nothing more” than smear his reputation and political career, Fox News has learned. It is not clear what type of legal action Fairfax plans to take or when details of those plans will emerge. His spokeswoman suggested it could be anywhere from the next few weeks to the next few months. The move comes just days after the statute of limitations for his first accuser, Dr. Vanessa Tyson, apparently expired. Tyson...

    Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who has been accused of sexually assaulting two women, is quitting the law firm where he works in Northern Virginia, a spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday. Fairfax, who has adamantly denied the allegations and demanded criminal investigations in the cities where the women say the assaults occurred — Boston and Durham, N.C. — was placed on leave from the law firm Morrison and Foerster in February after the allegations emerged. Morrison and Foerster has been independently investigating the allegations, and Fairfax said in a statement Tuesday the firm could not confirm the accusations. “It has been an honor...

    Embattled Virginia Lt. Gov Justin Fairfax is "seriously" mulling a run for the commonwealth's highest office and suggested that the multiple sexual misconduct allegations have helped raise his profile. **SNIP** Despite being accused of sexual assault by two women, however, Fairfax is convinced that the publicity will ultimately help him. “Many people a year ago would not have recognized me, now they really do,” Fairfax explained. “People come up to me at gas stations, they say, ‘Hey, we recognize you. We love you. We know what they are saying about you is false.’" In February, Scripps college associated professor Vanessa...

    Virginia’s lieutenant governor is pushing to have sexual assault allegations against him investigated by district attorneys in the state, a report said Wednesday. Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax and his legal counsel sent letters to the Suffolk County and Durham County district attorney offices saying the allegations by Dr. Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson should be “promptly and fully” investigated, according to WWBT-TV. “If an investigation were to determine that the allegation is true, it should be criminally prosecuted. Conversely, if an investigation were to determine that the allegation is false, which Lt. Governor Fairfax is confident would be the conclusion...

    **SNIP** A few months ago, in a cascade of disgraces both Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface, then Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women. Now the story has seemingly disappeared from the front pages, or any pages, of the local news outlets. **SNIP** University of Virginia political analyst Kyle Kondik says Northam remains in office for a number of reasons. “For one thing, Fairfax is even more toxic than he is, and the accusations against the lieutenant governor help insulate the governor. But I also think the governor...

    A woman who resigned as Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax's policy director in the days after two women accused him of sexual assault said on Thursday that she felt "brainwashed, betrayed and retraumatized" by the way he has handled the allegations against him. At a Rally Against Rape event in Arlington's Gateway Park Thursday night, Adele McClure spoke for nearly 20 minutes. Her talk was streamed live on Facebook. She recounted how she was sexually assaulted at age 16 by someone she barely knew. Then she "moved on and buried it deep," she said. "I have not thought about that, or...

    Virginia’s top three Democrats have seen donations to their political action committees almost completely dry up in the wake of three separate scandals that rocked the commonwealth earlier this year. Political groups run by Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) all struggled to raise money over the past three months, according to campaign finance reports filed earlier this week. The money stopped flowing, the reports show, in the days after Northam apologized for, and then denied, being in a college yearbook photo wearing either blackface or a Ku Klux Klan robe...

    Students at George Mason University are advocating the termination of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who is scheduled to teach a George Mason law class in England this summer.

    More than a dozen state lawmakers filed onto the stage, summoned by the smiling leader of their state: Ralph S. Northam, the governor of Virginia. On the governor’s right were a handful of House Democrats, who as a group in February said they were “no longer confident in the governor’s representation of Virginians,” after learning of a shocking racist photo on Mr. Northam’s medical-school yearbook page. On his left were mostly Republicans, including the speaker of the House, Delegate Kirk Cox, who’d declared that Mr. Northam’s “ability to lead and govern is permanently impaired.” Some on stage were members of...

    Virginia Democratic Lieutenant Gov. Justin Fairfax’s office issued a statement Sunday again denying allegations of sexual assault and saying Fairfax took two polygraph exams in an effort to show he is telling the truth. The statement from Fairfax came as televised interviews of two women, Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson, are set to air over the coming days. “From the moment that Dr. Vanessa Tyson and then Ms. Meredith Watson first made accusations that Lt. Governor Fairfax had committed sexual assault decades ago, Lt. Governor Fairfax has been steadfast in saying that the allegations are extraordinarily serious, deserve to be...

    In an unexpected speech shortly before the state Senate adjourned its 2019 session, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax cautioned against “political lynchings without any due process” and said “the truth is on my side” in the sexual assault allegations he faces. Referencing Virginia’s history of slavery and lynchings of African-Americans, Fairfax told senators from the dais Sunday that Virginia needs to decide what the next 400 years of state history will look like. “If we go backwards in a rush to judgment, and we allow for political lynchings without any due process, any facts, any evidence being heard, then I think...
