    President Obama and his family took advantage of 88 degree temperatures and sunny skies on Sunday to go for a hike in the Prince William Forest Park in Virginia. The nature walk comes a few days after the National Park Service celebrated its 100-year anniversary on Thursday. Obama marked the centennial last week by designating a new national monument in Maine’s north woods, protecting 87,500 acres, including the East Branch of the Penobscot River.

    WASHINGTON — Gov. Terry McAuliffe broke the bad news to the General Assembly’s money committees Friday morning in Richmond that the state’s budget is in the hole by about $1.5 billion over two years, and he warned state lawmakers to brace for “tough decisions ahead.” The projected shortfall for the current two-year budget is $1.2 billion. But that’s in addition to shortfall of about $280 million carried over from the budget year that ended June 30. The governor told state lawmakers the budget problems are being driven by lower income and sales tax revenue collections than what was anticipated. As...

All links to opt-out forms for FLE or the Youth Survey are redirected to the home page or a 404 error. Recently, Fairfax County Public Schools released a new website. Karen Garza, superintendent of schools, claimed that the previous website was "no longer meeting [parents' and students'] needs" and that the new website provides a "wide range of information" in a "clear, accessible, and user-friendly way."

    The professional Soros migration/refugee agitators are rallying the street radicals to come to Washington, D.C., this Sunday, August 28. The aim of #DCRally4Refugees is to whip up the appearance of popular support for the UN’s September 19 Refugee Summit and President Obama’ plan to “surge” thousands more Syrian “refugees” into American communities. The #DCRally4Refugees is being organized by dozens of radical-Left groups funded by billionaire hedge fund mogul George Soros (shown) and his Open Society Foundations.

    A defiant Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he again restored the voting rights of about 13,000 felons who served their time after his previous attempt was thwarted by Republican lawmakers and the state Supreme Court. Virginia's highest court ruled in July that governors cannot restore rights en masse, but must consider each offender on a case-by-case basis. That ruling invalidated a sweeping executive order issued by McAuliffe in April that had given back the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences. McAuliffe blasted the court Monday for ignoring the "the clear text of the...

On Twitter, Schultz used the hashtag "#OptOut" and criticized the survey as containing "assumptively crafted, probative questions." If you look at the actual survey, you will quickly see that she is right. Questions such as "how often do you use cocaine" and "how did you get the alcohol you drink" clearly are...

Attorneys on both sides said that a ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit suspends the public corruption case, and that further legal action is necessary to vacate the convictions as prosecutors decide whether to seek a new trial. But they said the order indicates that the court agrees with a defense analysis — unchallenged by prosecutors — that the first...

    Kaine and his running mate are both old school Democrats who take advantage of perks and bend the law to their advantage Well, it was a rocky coronation for Hillary Clinton. Although she secured the controversial nomination, her acceptance speech was widely panned, even criticized by Democrat operative David Axelrod. In fact, it was so boring that her husband fell asleep during her 56 minute excursion into political fantasy land. It remains to be seen what kind of bounce she will receive in the polls. After the GOP finished their convention, Donald Trump secured the lead for the first time...

    The citizens of Virginia must, through their representatives, impeach and remove Governor Terry McAullife as soon as possible. Here's why: Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe announced recently that he would bypass the Virginia Supreme Court and illegally sign 12,000 separate clemency petitions (without individually reviewing the circumstances of each petition) in order to allow felons to vote in Virginia. This move is obviously politically motivated, coming less than 4 months before a major presidential election -- in which Virginia is a major swing state. Terry McAullife has repeatedly admitted that he is a personal friend of Hillary Clinton. It is definitely...

    Verde Point is a self-described "luxury apartment" complex with a rooftop pool and "personal wine storage" that is currently accepting public housing assistance recipients who will live there practically for free, courtesy of the taxpayers — at least until they become gainfully employed and their incomes rise. That's when the pool parties and wine tastings end and they will have to downgrade to a more middle-class abode. The Gramercy is another luxury apartment, also in Arlington, Va., where holders of the federal vouchers formerly known as Section 8 can live, taking advantage of its "massage room and sauna" and "clubroom...

    WASHINGTON — An Alexandria police officer who says she was refused service at a local restaurant is getting an apology. Peter Feltham, with the Alexandria Committee of Police told NBC 4 an Alexandria officer went into a Noodles & Company on Duke Street for dinner Monday evening and was denied service. “While they were waiting in line, the cook from behind the counter went up to the cash register person and pointed at the police officer and said, ‘You have to take me off the line. I ain’t serving that.’ The officer realized what was happening and rather than make...
  • Tim Kaine, Hillary's 'safe' choice, gets kid-glove treatment from the media

    The media are giving their official blessing to Hillary Clinton’s choice of Tim Kaine, praising him as a calm, experienced and slightly dull guy who can help her govern. What they are not doing is picking the Virginia senator apart, and highlighting his disagreements with the nominee, which marked the coverage of Donald Trump’s selection of Mike Pence. I happen to think that both Kaine and Pence are solid and serious choices who share some similarities, as both are religious and make little attempt to be flashy. But different media standards seem to apply.

Appointing a Muslim Brotherhood Front Leader Who Supports Hamas In 2007, Kaine was the Governor of Virginia and, of all people chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to the state’s Immigration Commission.
