    Cybercast News Service ^ | April 24, 2017 | 5:12 PM EDT | Michael W. Chapman
    Long-time national security expert Lt. Col. Robert “Bob” Maginnis (ret.), a senior fellow with the Family Research Council (FRC), said there is “a lot of witchcraft” and “hedonism” in Washington, D.C., and added that when he thinks of Sodom and Gomorrah he often thinks of the nation’s capital “in the same thought.” Maginnis, who has testified numerous times before Congress and appeared on countless news outlets, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel, also said Dupont Circle, infamous for being the “center of homosexuality in Washington,” is home to countless activities that are “pretty souring.” […] Maginnis,...

    A mild winter followed by a spate of cold weather in Washington, made its mark on the city’s cherry blossoms, but the annual festival delighted first-time visitors on Sunday. The cherry blossom trees were a gift from Japan to the United States in 1912. The cherry blossom trees currently grow in three National Park Service locations, including the Tidal Basin, Hains Point and on the Washington Monument grounds. The cold weather killed half of the blossoms on the Yoshino cherry trees just as they were reaching their peak. The National Park Service says on its website that peak bloom was...

    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...
  • 'Suspicious' Cellular Activity In D.C. Suggests Monitoring of Individual Smartphones

    As the discussion over wiretapping and foreign hacking still dominates the conversation in Washington, an unusually high amount of suspicious cell phone activity in the nation’s capital has caught the attention of the Department of Homeland Security, raising concerns that U.S. officials are being monitored by a foreign entity. The issue was first reported in the Washington Free Beacon, but a source at telecom security firm ESD America confirmed the spike in suspicious activity to CBS News. ESD America, hired preemptively for a DHS pilot program this January called ESD Overwatch, first noticed suspicious activity around cell phone towers in...
  • There’s no solution to the D.C. region’s traffic congestion

    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...

    We should remember it because it was one of the first acts of serious domestic terrorism” Long before Osama bin Laden’s lieutenants flew a hijacked commercial airliner into the Pentagon on 9/11, Muslim terrorists carried out an attack in the heart of Washington, D.C. This week in 1977 armed Islamic militants invaded three Washington, D.C. buildings and took almost 150 people hostage, radio station WTOP reminds us. During the three-day siege that took place on March 9, 10, and 11, a few weeks after Jimmy Carter was sworn in as the nation’s new president, Hanafi Muslims killed two men and...

    Barack Obama is turning his new home in the posh Kalorama section of the nation's capital - just two miles away from the White House - into the nerve center of the mounting insurgency against his successor, President Donald J. Trump. Obama's goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment. And Obama is being aided in his political crusade by his longtime consigliere, Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into the 8,200-square-foot, $5.3-million Kaloroma mansion with the former president and Michelle Obama, long time best friends....

    U.S. Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao had been on the job only a few weeks when she took action on one of the region's most intractable problems and directed millions in federal transit dollars be withheld from the District, Maryland and Virginia until they create a safety agency to oversee D.C.'s subway, Metro. Chao was making good on a threat by her predecessor, Anthony Foxx, a move that surprised some local officials who had hoped that the jurisdictions had shown enough progress to stave off the action. It's too soon to say whether Chao's action is a sign she will continue...

    Prosecutors have indicted 214 people on felony rioting charges in connection to protests that broke out in downtown Washington, DC, on Inauguration Day. Police originally arrested 230 people after demonstrators smashed storefronts and bus stops, launched rocks at police and set fire to a limousine on January 20.   Six police officers were injured as chaos erupted in parts of the capital, just blocks away from where Donald Trump was being sworn in as president. A grand jury in DC charged five individuals on Tuesday, adding to the 209 defendants who were indicted earlier this month. Those who have been...

    District health officials mishandled Zika testing for hundreds of residents last year, including two pregnant women who were incorrectly told they did not have the virus when in fact they were infected. The mistakes, made public Thursday by city officials, have prompted retesting for the Zika virus of specimens from more than 400 people, including nearly 300 pregnant women who may have mistakenly been told they didn’t have the mosquito-borne viral infection. ... Smith said she could not say if those women or any of the others whose tests were botched have given birth.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The morning after President Donald Trump issued orders to delay environmental rules and restart pipeline projects, Greenpeace protesters climbed a 270-foot construction crane blocks from the White House and unfurled a massive orange and yellow banner with the word, "RESIST." A spokesman for the environmental group, Travis Nichols, said the protesters are encouraging resistance to Trump and his agenda. A Greenpeace statement said the demonstration is "calling for those who want to resist Trump's attacks on environmental, social, economic, and educational justice to contribute to a better America." Police closed three city blocks to traffic around the...

    I have been in Washington DC for the last three days. The ostensible reason was to participate in a board meeting of a public company, Ashford Inc. (AINC). We manage hotel REITs that own three hotels here in DC, and the group decided to move our board meeting up a few weeks and hold it in DC during the inauguration. That gave me the opportunity to set up a few meetings to try to gain some insight into what the first 100 days, the first six months, and the first year of the Trump administration might look like.This is going...

    As if yesterday’s Project Veritas video wasn’t enough to prove just how crazy the left is over the election of President-elect Donald Trump, James O’Keefe's organization has come out with the second part of their undercover series on the inner-workings of the organizations planning to disrupt Trump inauguration on Friday. O’Keefe begins his video by talking about a group known as DisruptJ20. J20 stands for Jan. 20, which is the date of the inauguration. It’s as if these yo-yos think that by shortening the date to J20, all of the non-hipsters won’t catch onto them. The video shows how these...

    A group led by self-avowed anarchists says it intends to “paralyze” Washington, D.C., amid President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration next Friday, using security point blockades, protests and sit-ins in an attempt to grind the Republican’s swearing-in to a halt.“If the headline (on Jan. 21) is, ‘Donald Trump inaugurated amid complete chaos and a cluster (expletive),’ then we won,” Legba Carrefour, an organizer for the group, DisruptJ20, said by phone yesterday. “A lot of us are people who could be considered anarchists. None of us have respect for the office or the man.”The promised actions by the group come amid a raft...
