    Police are searching for a gunman who shot five people, all teenagers, inside a Fairfax County, Virginia, apartment building early Tuesday morning. The incident happened around 1 a.m. in an apartment complex on the 7900 block of Janna Lee Avenue, in the Alexandria section of Fairfax. After receiving multiple phone calls, officers arrived at the scene to find all five victims suffering from gunshot injuries. Numerous rounds were fired during the incident, and the alleged shooter fled the scene before police arrived. The victims, three females and two males, ranged between 14 to 19 years old. They were all treated...
  • Black Lives Matter: Not Just Communist, But Viciously Anti-Semitic Too

    No matter the color of their skin, Jews are going to be labeled “white.” By the time violent rioters tore through the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Fairfax, Los Angeles on the night of Saturday May 30, 2020, it was too late. The vicious antisemitic, anti-Israel language of the M4BL and Black Lives Matter’s demands that included accusations against Israel of “apartheid” and “genocide” had been brushed aside. Black Lives Matter (BLM) delegations had traveled to the Middle East to endorse Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, Judea, and Samaria and pose for photo ops with the Palestinian flag. Statements from delegation leaders...

    Northern Virginia, the state’s economic engine, is nowhere near ready to reopen Friday when Gov. Ralph Northam plans to begin lifting shutdown restrictions, the region’s top elected officials said Sunday, citing the continuing increase in coronavirus infections and hospitalizations. In a joint letter, the elected leaders in Northern Virginia’s five largest jurisdictions — representing nearly 2.4 million residents — told Northam (D) they are unwilling to lift restrictions in place since late March, which the governor plans to do in a limited capacity Friday in hopes of reviving the state’s ailing economy. Northam announced last week that he will begin...

    Home at Last: Church of the Apostles Ready to Reach A New Community Thanks to David Harper, shepherd of 26 years; Nick Braunschneider, our new Joshua; & especially Joe Acanfora, our Moses. During the service of consecration and thanksgiving for Church of the Apostles’ new church home in Fairfax, Virginia last month, I was surprised and filled with joy when I closed my eyes. Remaining behind closed eyelids was the image of the cross that was against the back wall of the chancel. I suddenly remembered how I used to love “seeing” that cross while praying at Church of the...

    A handful of local police officers and the Honorable Mark C. Simmons, a General District Court Judge in Fairfax County, Virginia, pushed back on the progressive prosecutor backed by George Soros, who took office last week. The neoliberal Steve Descano has spent his first few days in office attempting to effectuate leftist political agenda with powers that he does not legally have. He declared that his lawyers will not prosecute simple marijuana possession crimes, essentially transforming Fairfax County into a marijuana sanctuary while possession continues to remain unlawful under Virginia state law. Virginia State Senator Mark Obenshain (R), who is also...

    American Thinker ^ | 10/30/2019
    My home county of Fairfax, Virginia was once a safe suburban area with some of the best performing public schools in the nation. It's now a blinking warning sign to America as it hangs on the edge of complete disaster thanks to unchecked immigration and Democrat takeover of the government. Even with the high concentration of government workers, Fairfax County was once a Republican bastion before it became a political battleground. The Bush/Cheney ticket won the county in a close race in 2000 and then lost it badly in 2004 due to a significant increase in Democrat votes. Fairfax's descent...

    Washington Examiner ^ | December 3, 2019 | Anna Giaritelli |
    FAIRFAX, Virginia — Immigrants who fled Central American countries to get away from transnational criminal organizations such as MS-13 have come to the United States only to find the exact same gangs terrorizing northern Virginia communities. Five federal and local officials who work on gang matters in the region told the Washington Examiner that while they do not have a way to calculate exactly how many people — asylum seekers, temporary protected status recipients, immigrants, and those without documents — have been victims of crimes committed by MS-13 and others, the immigrant community in Fairfax County, Virginia, is often on...

    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...

    A black sixth grader at a Fairfax County, Virginia, private school said she was attacked by white classmates who then cut her hair while taunting her with racist insults this week. Amari Allen is a student at Immanuel Christian School in Springfield, and she said the incident happened during recess Monday. 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. She said the students were calling her hair “nappy”...

    "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...
