    Democrats in Congress are pushing for a new law that would allow nearly four million people currently banned from voting to cast their ballot, and most of those millions, studies show, will vote Democrat. And where will these new voters come from? From the ranks of convicted felons. Last week, a House subcommittee heard testimony on H.R. 3335, the "Democracy Restoration Act." The bill seeks to override state laws , which vary in how they restrict when convicted felons released from prison can vote. The bill, sponsored by Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., and sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Russell...

    RICHMOND — A legislative review of Virginia’s Department of Elections has found that the agency had an “environment of open support for one party over the other” under leadership appointed by then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat. Staff from the General Assembly’s Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission presented their findings Monday in a 75-page report that pointed to the perception of political bias and a faulty IT system as two key issues state lawmakers may want to address. Jamie Bitz, a chief legislative analyst for JLARC, said interviews with local voter registrars and state elections staffers showed there was “a...

    Federal prosecutors have for months been using a grand jury to investigate former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe — an indication the probe into whether he misled officials exploring his role in a controversial media disclosure has intensified, two people familiar with the matter said. The grand jury has summoned more than one witness, the people said, and the case is ongoing. The people declined to identify those who had been called to testify. The presence of the grand jury shows prosecutors are treating the matter seriously, locking in the accounts of witnesses who might later have to testify at...

    Senate Democrats with White House ambitions are stepping up their political activities, as the start of the 2020 presidential election cycle is less than 70 days away. Washington’s focus is currently on the battle for control of the Senate and House, which will most likely be decided on Nov. 6. But the following day will mark the unofficial start of the 2020 presidential election cycle, and the field of Democrats vying to challenge President Trump will be crowded. There are at least six likely presidential candidates in the Senate Democratic Caucus: Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris...

    Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe used Peter Strzok’s mistress, Lisa Page, to get information on the FBI probe into investigation of Clinton’s private server. McCabe used Page to “circumvented the official chain of command”. Other bureau officials took issue with the decision. Then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe tasked the mistress of lead agent Peter Strzok to stay appraised of the probe into Hillary Clinton’s private server — a decision that other bureau officials took issue with at the time, according to the Department of Justice Inspector General’s bombshell report. McCabe was supposed to be insulated from the probe by two...

    Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe paved way for candidacy. A confessed pedophile who served prison time for threatening to assassinate the president of the United States is running for Congress in Virginia. The candidacy of Nathan Larson, an independent, was made possible by former Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who restored the rights of felons in 2016 to vote and run for office.

    An admitted pedophile and convicted felon who spent more than a year in prison for threatening to kill President George W. Bush is legally able to run for Congress in Virginia this year because of a 2016 decision by then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe to restore voting rights to thousands of felons. Nathan Larson, 37, of Catlett is running as an independent candidate in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. He has expressed pro-pedophilia and incest views, and, in an interview with HuffPo this week, called it “normal” for men to be attracted to underage women. According to Larson’s campaign platform, he is for...

    Andrew McCabe is facing his day of reckoning. And it's about time. The McCabe story goes back a ways. It's necessary to hark back in time to fully understand the dynamics. Terry McAuliffe  and Hillary Clinton fatally compromised McCabe in 2015: By now you know that long time Clinton confidant and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe used $467,500 of his PAC money to “help” Jill McCabe, the wife of FBI agent Andrew McCabe in her bid for Congress. The Virginia Democratic Party, virtually controlled by McAuliffe, tossed in another $200,000. The money began flowing into the McCabe campaign coffers, in another one of...

    The electric car company founded by former Gov. Terry McAuliffe filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy this week, blaming in part a wave of negative coverage by a conservative news website for its financial woes. GreenTech Automotive's bankruptcy petition cites 76 articles by the website Watchdog.org it says "negatively affected governmental, investor and public perception of GreenTech" and prompted investigations by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Department of Homeland Security. GreenTech in 2013 sued Watchdog.org, operated by the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, for $85 million. A judge dismissed the case in 2014. McAuliffe resigned from GreenTech...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) announced a deal Wednesday that will add 10 more miles of express lanes to the Interstate 95 corridor, expanding the system of high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes to Fredericksburg by 2022. As part of the agreement, the private company building the lanes will give the state $277 million upfront to cover costs of a bridge over the Rappahannock River and other improvements along the corridor, Virginia transportation officials said. The deal essentially moves forward a 10-mile extension from Garrisonville Road (Route 610) in Stafford County to Route 17 in the Fredericksburg area. It also builds on...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) suggested Thursday that he would knock out President Donald Trump during a debate if Trump tried to intimidate him or get in his space. Asked by MSNBC's Chris Matthews what he would do if Trump tried to intimidate him as Hillary Clinton said he was trying to do during their 2016 town hall debate, McAuliffe said Trump would have to be picked up off the floor. "What would you do in a debate with him if he tried that? If he came over and leaned over back of you, what would you do?" Matthews asked....

    Incoming Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) indicates that banning private gun sales in the state will be a priority for 2018. In other words, he will continue to pursue the gun controls that outgoing Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) pursued but failed to secure. NBC Washington reports that Northam will be pushing “universal background checks for gun buyers.” This means private gun sales will be treated like retail sales, with a point-of-sale background checks required at time of purchase. Such a framework will require a law-abiding gun owner to seek out a government representative, a federal firearms license holder, and have...

    The FBI said in documents released Friday that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe did not have any role in the probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server while his wife ran as a Democrat for state office in Virginia. The documents note that Jill McCabe announced her candidacy for state Senate in Virginia in March 2015, while Andrew McCabe's role as deputy director started in February 2016, three months after his wife lost her electoral bid. Andrew McCabe had asked ethics officials if his wife's candidacy would lead to a potential conflict of interest while he was working as an assistant...

    President Trump announced late Wednesday that he had disbanded his controversial "election integrity" commission and blamed a refusal by more than a dozen states to provide what he called "basic information." "Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and he has asked the Department of Homeland Security to review its initial findings and determine next courses of action," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. The commission, led by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, had...

    Democrats are predicting a massive wave political victory in the upcoming 2018 Mid-Term elections. Citing their victories in New Jersey, Virginia & Alabama, this year, as positive proof of their forthcoming victories in 2018. "WRONG"!!! Why? New Jersey was a no brainer. A Democrat dog catcher, man or woman would have won NJ with their eyes closed. Virginia, first of all, Governor Terry McAuliffe, one of the biggest political Cheaters/Criminal of all time did his best act. He was lucky because the "weak" Republican candidate, Ed Gilliespie, shunned the support of POTUS, Donald J. Trump. As a result of that...
