    Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was spotted volunteering at Arlington National Cemetery Saturday, honoring the nation’s veterans. Thomas was laying wreaths at the cemetery alongside Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit organization that organizes a wreath-laying ceremony at Arlington each year. He was seen in a photo with D.C.-based journalist Emily Miller, which she later shared on Twitter.

    AT A MINUTE before 5 a.m. on April 27, ABC News’ James Gordon Meek fired off a tweet with a single word: “FACTS.” The network’s national-security investigative producer was responding to former CIA agent Marc Polymeropoulos’ take that the Ukrainian military — with assistance from the U.S. — was thriving against Russian forces. Polymeropoulos’ tweet — filled with acronyms indecipherable to the layperson, like “TTPs,” “UW,” and “EW” — was itself a reply to a missive from Washington Post Pentagon reporter Dan Lamothe, who noted the wealth of information the U.S. military had gathered about Russian ops by observing their...
  • California Cities Getting Hit Hardest By Inflation – And How They Voted

    Inflation is impacting the entire United States population as prices continue to be a burden for families, but certain California cities are feeling the impact more than others. In a new study from WalletHub, cities were ranked on how much inflation is rising. The study pointed to the year-over-year inflation rate of 8.2% last month, but noted that some cities are feeling costs increase more than others. In the report, 23 Metropolitan Statistical Areas were examined. The site looked at the Consumer Price Index information available for the most recent month and compared it to two months ago and one...

    Arlington, TX—In order to get a piece of the action, the Texas Rangers will pay tribute to Muslims all over the world by halving half price tickets and parking for all Muslims that attend their game on Saturday, June 13, 2009. The Texas Rangers will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in interleague play, and feel that since Obama has praised the entire Muslim world, that they should also do the same thing, knowing that America has become a “Muslim Nation.” Many have speculated that this may be a bad move, but the owner—Tom Hicks—assures people that this is simply taking...

    Arlington National Cemetery would be required to disinter the remains of a former Navy officer who murdered a junior sailor decades ago under a proposed amendment to the annual defense budget bill. Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) submitted the measure last week during the House Armed Services Committee’s markup of the proposed legislation. No one on the panel objected.

    Raytheon Technologies will move its headquarters from Boston's suburbs to Washington, D.C.'s this fall, putting all of the five largest defense companies in National Capital Region. The offices will be in the Rosslyn neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, just across the Potomac River from Washington and within sight of the Pentagon. “The location increases agility in supporting U.S. government and commercial customers and serves to reinforce partnerships that will progress innovative technologies to advance the industry,” the company said in a statement. “Washington, D.C., serves as a convenient travel hub for the company’s global customers and employees.” Last month, Boeing last...

    A mother is mourning the death of her 18-year-old son, who was fatally shot Friday in Alexandria, Virginia, after police say he and three other teens tried to carjack a man at a gas station and the man opened fire. Jordan Poteat was a student at Suitland High School in Maryland, his mother, Kelly Poteat Stubblefield, said Wednesday as she grappled with the loss. “He wasn’t thinking, and it led to him losing his life,” she said. Poteat, 18-year-old Mikell Morris and two 15-year-old boys tried to carjack a man at an Exxon station in the 2300 block of Richmond...

    CHICAGO — Boeing will move its headquarters out of Chicago and east to suburban Washington, D.C., according to a published report which cited sources close to the situation. The Wall Street Journal reported that the company will move from Chicago, where Boeing has been headquartered since 2001. The Wall Street Journal report said that company officials desire to be closer to the nation's capital and in closer proximity to government contracts. The Journal reported that the major aerospace player will move its headquarters to Arlington, Va. although no announcement has been made officially.

    After 20 years in Chicago, Boeing has decided to end its relationship with the Windy City, which is plagued by high crime and a poor business environment. While the company said it will maintain a “strong presence” in Chicago and the state of Illinois, its new global headquarters will be based in Arlington, Virginia. “We are excited to build on our foundation here in Northern Virginia. The region makes strategic sense for our global headquarters given its proximity to our customers and stakeholders, and its access to world-class engineering and technical talent,” said Boeing President and Chief Executive Officer Dave...

    Last October, Boeing’s headquarters in Chicago was described as looking like a ghost town, with few people showing up to work at the company’s corporate offices. And that was largely after the city began reopening following the pandemic lockdowns. Many employees may still have been working from home out of caution over COVID, but others simply didn’t want to brave the streets of the Windy City for fear of being carjacked or otherwise harmed by the criminals who seemed to be running the streets. Now the “ghost town” reputation is apparently going to be amplified because the company announced that...

    "The suspect then intervened, deployed pepper spray and sprayed the victim, before fleeing the scene on foot," according to the police.Earlier this month, a woman in Arlington, Virginia, saw a man taking pictures of kids and suspected the worst: a creep on the prowl with his camera. Disgusting. She quickly alerted a security guard and, according to a subsequent police report, told him she believed the man was photographing children he didn't know, for presumably nefarious purposes. The security guard went to investigate and made contact with the man. As it turns out, the guy was taking pictures of his...
  • 'I Recommended Not Responding': VA School Accidentally Responds to Email from Reporter About Mask Mandate

    A communications representative for a public school system in Virginia accidentally responded to a reporter seeking information used in their decision to continue with its mask requirement and what the district plans to do if Gov. Glenn Youngkin's (R) executive order allowing an opt-out of school mask mandates is followed. Arlington Public Schools communications director Frank Bellavia, intending to recommend that his colleagues not respond to an email from a Daily Caller reporter, mistakenly replied instead to the reporter, who sought the data used to determine the district's claim that masks are effective in mitigating COVID transmission. "FYI I recommended...

    It's rare for a single election result to spell the likely end of the careers of two politicians, but Virginia Democrats appear to have accomplished just that in 2021. With Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin's two–percentage point upset victory, angry parents likely put an end to the careers of current Gov. Ralph Northam and 2014–2018 Gov. Terry McAuliffe. As we bid adieu to 2021, let's take a ride down memory lane as we also bid good riddance to Northam and McAuliffe. McAuliffe's four years in office were plagued by corporate cronyism, which was not surprising given that an electric car company McAuliffe...

    Despite his family’s attempts to cover for his character, Timothy Simpkins, is now back in jail. The new charge against the “no bad kid” comes as an alleged violation of the $75,000 bond he was released on in October where he was then ordered to home confinement. KTVT reported that the bond conditions required him to abstain from drug use and to not possess alcohol, but a urinalysis report on the 18-year-old alleged shooter came back positive. The court records did not say for what though. Advertisement - story continues below The day before his initial release, Simpkins had an...

    After the Vatican Directives, What's Next in the Diocese of Arlington for the Latin Mass? And so it begins. My bishop, Michael Burbidge, Bishop of Arlington, spoke about the Vatican directive that came out last weekend in his 12/20 podcast, a portion of which I've transcribed below. The bishop won't be issuing his own implementation document until the new year, but it's pretty clear that it will be bad news for those of us who attend the "extraordinary form" at diocesan parishes, even if only occasionally. The Latin Mass (TLM) will not be totally suppressed in the Diocese of...

ARLINGTON, Virginia (LifeSiteNews) – A bishop in a U.S. diocese recognized for its ample provision of the traditional liturgy (Latin Mass) has become one of the first prelates to announce a ban on certain sacraments in the Old Rite, following the Vatican’s latest restrictions on the Latin Mass.Bishop Michael...

    Metro train derailed Tuesday afternoon on the Blue Line near the Arlington Cemetery station, the transit agency reported. The incident occurred about 4:50 p.m. Metro rail controllers in the Rail Operations Control Center received a report of a disabled Blue Line train in the tunnel between the Rosslyn and Arlington Cemetery stations in Northern Virginia, Metro spokesman Ian Jannetta said. Metro officials said the train, a 7000-series train that is one of Metro’s latest models, partially slipped off the tracks. Metro officials said that 300 to 400 people were on the train and that 187 passengers had been evacuated by...

    The teenage gunman who opened fire in an Arlington, Texas, school on Wednesday has been released on bond, a day after pulling a gun from his backpack and shooting a 'bully', a teacher and one other girl. Timothy George Simpkins was being held on a $75,000 bond on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but the 18-year-old walked out of Tarrant County Jail on Thursday afternoon. Simpkins said nothing as he strode out of the jail in a blue t-shirt, matching baseball cap worn backwards, and jeans. It's unclear why he has been charged with aggravated assault...

    Timothy Simpkins, 18, was apprehended by police following a school shooting in Arlington, Texas on Wednesday. He has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The suspect has since been released on a $75,000 bond. Authorities on Thursday said Simpkins would report to home confinement, as well as follow several more conditions to his release. Simpkins claimed self defense after family members said he brought a handgun to Timberview High School to protect himself. In addition, they maintain he was often a target of bullying and was robbed twice on campus.
