  • Blaming Conservatives For The Attack On Pelosi Is A Cynical Effort To Chill Speech

    Blaming Conservatives For The Attack On Pelosi Is A Cynical Effort To Chill SpeechThe left’s insistence that every conservative personally “condemn” the actions of the mentally ill man who attacked Nancy Pelosi’s husband Paul has nothing to do with lowering the rhetorical temperature or averting violence, and everything to do with trying to compel Republicans to take responsibility for the incident.Forget the ugly, transparent cynicism of partisans like Joe Scarborough or David Frum or Bill Kristol. Take The Washington Post, which ran a triple-bylined, reported piece headlined, “Attack on Nancy Pelosi’s husband follows years of GOP demonizing her.” “Years of...

    Sometimes, you’ve just gotta dance. Drumming protesters crashed another town hall event hosted by far-left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) Wednesday night, with the “Squad” member eventually bopping along to their rhythmic chants. Video of the protest in Queens showed demonstrators chanting “AOC has got to go” and holding up signs denouncing the 33-year-old congresswoman while a man with a hand drum pounds out a beat. The loud jeering and chanting left Ocasio-Cortez with nothing better to do than show off her moves while she sat on the edge of a stage. At one point, the lawmaker appeared to spot a...

    ALEXANDRIA, Virginia — A jury has found Russian national Igor Danchenko not guilty on four false statements charges, declining to convict him for the allegations that the main source of British ex-spy Christopher Steele had lied to the FBI about his sourcing for the discredited anti-Trump dossier. The jury reached their decision on Tuesday after less than two days of deliberations, delivering John Durham another defeat in his long-running investigation of the Trump-Russia investigators, after the special counsel lost another false statements case against a Clinton campaign lawyer in May. According to Durham’s November 2021 indictment, Danchenko anonymously sourced a...
  • Liberal Virginia School Boards Refuse to Acknowledge Parents' Rights, Plan to Defy Gov. Youngkin

    Last Friday, as Madeline highlighted, Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) updated Virginia's policies on transgender students and pronouns, emphasizing parental involvement. This was a significant change from the previous administration of Gov. Ralph Northam, a Democrat. Despite such an update, it appears that the main culprits, Alexandria City Public Schools and Fairfax County Public Schools, don't show an intention of complying. As Madeline also covered, Fairfax County, the largest school district in Virginia, was training teachers to transition students without parental consent, which certainly earned the ire of Youngkin.

    Special counsel John Durham requested a federal court to issue 30 subpoenas for testimony in the trial against Igor Danchenko, British ex-spy Christopher Steele’s alleged main source for his discredited dossier. Danchenko was charged with five counts of making false statements to the FBI, which Durham says he made about the information he provided to Steele for the dossier. His trial is scheduled for October. The DOJ’s watchdog said FBI interviews with Danchenko “raised significant questions about the reliability of the Steele election reporting” and concluded Danchenko “contradicted the allegations of a ‘well-developed conspiracy’ in” Steele’s dossier. He has pleaded...

    In the Washington D.C. suburb of Alexandria, Va., carjackings have made the news lately. Thieves steal cars at Virginia gas stations and race across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge over the Potomac and into Maryland to relative safety. The Department of Justice doesn’t seem to be doing anything about enforcing the federal laws prohibiting transport of stolen goods across the Virginia-Maryland state line. If the carjacker was named James O’Keefe of Project Veritas, things would be very different. The saga of James O’Keefe’s quite possibly completely legal acquisition of Ashley Biden’s diary, and the resulting DOJ secret seizure of his emails...

    This is a tale of two Beltway cities. One - Alexandria - resides on the freedom side of the Potomac River in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The other is the District of Columbia, our nation’s capital. These famous towns have many similarities but differ on COVID-19 mitigation efforts. Both are unfortunately run by progressive politicians. Both are situated in the DMV Metro Area. But one isn’t encumbered by suffocating policies anymore. The other is.

    I was surprised to read The Washington Post’s recent editorial concluding that pro-choice protesters had crossed the line by demonstrating in front of the home of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. After all, The Washington Post is not exactly a conservative or rational voice on these types of issues. Almost all the points in the editorial made perfect and logical sense, including the concluding statement: “Leave spouses, children and homes out of it.” As I finished reading the editorial, one overriding thought came to mind. Where was this logical point of view in 2020 when many Trump administration officials, including...

    The body of a woman found in Missouri in 1981 has been identified via DNA match exactly 40 years later, sheriff officials said. Karen Kay Knippers, whose body was discovered at a low river crossing near Dixon on May 25, 1981, was later buried as a “Jane Doe” at Waynesville Cemetery after authorities were unable to identify the apparent homicide victim, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office announced Tuesday. The unidentified remains were exhumed in 2015 in hopes of getting DNA evidence after a detective became interested in the case and requested approval to take another look, sheriff officials said.

Beginning around March 2019 through March 2020, Sungur engaged in the business of dealing in firearms through the repetitive purchase and resale of firearms. Among the firearms that he sold and advertised for sale were homemade pistols devoid of serial numbers or other unique identifiers, commonly known as "ghost guns." Sungur explained to prospective customers that he charged a premium for such pistols because he made them, because they lacked...

    A former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) analyst who repeatedly divulged classified information to journalists was sentenced Thursday to 30 months in prison. Henry Kyle Frese, a counterterrorism analyst from February 2018 to October 2019 before he was arrested, apologized to a federal judge in Alexandria, Va., for his conduct and said his motive for leaking was to advance relationships, including one with a reporter whom he was dating at the time. “It was never for personal gain or out of anger. It was never for political reasons,” said Frese, who previously pleaded guilty to leaking national secrets to two journalists...

    A church attended by George Washington will take down a memorial to the nation's first president, a move church leaders say is intended to make the place of worship more welcoming. The Washington Times reported Friday that Christ Church in Alexandria, Va., will remove memorials of Washington and former Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee, which stand on either side of the church's altar. “The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome," church leaders said. "Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the...

    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...

    The discovery of a 2,300-year-old shipwreck between the classical trading centers of Rhodes and Alexandria adds to the corpus of evidence that is challenging the long-held assumption that ancient sailors lacked the navigational skills to sail large distances across open water, and were instead restricted to following the coastline during their voyages. Four other possibly ancient wrecks lie nearby... Despite its depth, the site is typical for an ancient shipwreck. The vessel came to rest on the bottom and eventually listed over onto its side. In this case, the ship heeled over to port. As its wooden hull lost...

    Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates testified in federal court Thursday against Obama White House counsel Gregory Craig about the ex-counsel's Ukraine-related work for Paul Manafort, Politico reported. Gates was a top lieutenant to Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, for approximately 10 years. During that time, Manafort supervised a 2012 review conducted by Craig of the abuse-of-power trial of ex-Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to Politico. While the review was presented as an independent probe of the trial, it was commissioned by Manafort's primary client, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, and bankrolled by Victor Pinchuk, a steel oligarch and...
