    Just heard on NBC 4 DC 11:00 news that 22,000 ballots were put into ballot boxes on the Tuesday of the primaries. Bowser only leads by 10,000. Several other races are much closer. I have not found another source for this, but I expect to hear more later. HA HA HA HA !!!!!!!
  • Texas and Arizona Send 79 Buses Full of Illegals to Washington, D.C.: Where Will They Be Sent Next?

    In April of this year, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had grown weary of the Biden administration releasing illegal aliens captured at the border into Texas towns and decided to make his problem Washington’s problem. He began to load illegal aliens onto buses and send them across the country to Washington, D.C. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey thought that was a fine idea and began to send his own convoys full of illegals to Washington. Now, according to an exclusive report in the Washington Examiner, there have been 79 buses that have brought 2,500 illegals to Washington’s Union Station from Arizona and...

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.), a vocal critic of former President Trump, said that some churches have changed from institutions that worshiped God to institutions that worshipped Trump. Kinzinger, who is one of only two Republicans sitting on the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, tweeted a video clip of remarks that he made at a conference in April on Friday, stating that the U.S. is in a “leadership crisis.”

    [Image] The Taliban’s stated wish to have peaceful relations abroad notwithstanding, the global consequences of competitive militancy are dangerously severe Will Afghanistan again become an exporter of global terrorism? My answer, an emphatic “yes”, will trigger sharp protests. Many perhaps will cite some of what Zabiullah Mujahid, Deputy Minister for Culture and Information and official central spokesman of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (henceforth Islamic Emirate), said at the Taliban’s first official press conference in Kabul on August 17, 2021. The Taliban, he said, wished to have peaceful relations with other countries and no group would be allowed to use...

    ALBANY, N.Y. — Rep. Chris Jacobs has announced he will not seek another term in Congress, after the Republican faced rising backlash from the right following his announcement last week that he would support new gun control measures. “It would be an incredibly divisive election for both the Republican Party and the people of the 23rd District,” Jacobs said Friday afternoon at a press conference in Buffalo. “The last thing we need is an incredibly negative half-truth filled media attack funded by millions of dollars of special interest money coming into our community around this issue of guns and gun...

    “Light is everything,” says the sculptor. And, all at once, it is. You see light as if for the first time. Not as some condition of simple illumination, but as the maker of solids, the hand, the hammer and the chisel, the creator. You see it sifting down from the ceiling and sneaking through the glass doors, cascading from the two big windows up front, the long room filled with it in every angle and on every surface, the whole place swelling with daylight pouring through the glass bricks out back. Iron light, straw light, light bright as brass, sun-yellow...

    In the 2018-2019 school year, the government-run schools in Washington, D.C., beat the government-run schools in every state in the union in at least one measurable category: They spent the most money per pupil. That year, according to Table 236.75 published by the National Center for Education Statistics, the public elementary and secondary schools in our nation's capital spent a total of $29,925 per pupil. None of the 50 states came close to that. New York came in second place in the 2018-2019 school year with $26,799 in per pupil spending -- $3,126 behind the District of Columbia. Connecticut placed...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- “But she told me she was 16 years old.” Under a new criminal code being considered by the District of Columbia city council, that statement would be what is called “an affirmative defense to liability” for an adult who has sex with a minor. Put more plainly, an adult accused of sexual activity with a minor could avoid culpability if found to have “reasonably” believed the child’s claim at the time to have reached the age of consent. This more lenient approach to child sexual abuse is just one of many changes being considered by the council....

    Use-of-force expert says DC Metro Police officer committed felony in attack on Rosanne Boyland A District of Columbia police officer used a large wooden stick to strike the body and head of protester Rosanne Boyland three times as she lay motionless on the ground on Jan. 6, 2021, according to bodycam footage from several officers obtained by The Epoch Times. Use-of-force expert Stanley Kephart, upon reviewing the previously unreleased footage, concluded that the three full-force blows by D.C. police officer Lila Morris constituted a felony assault with intent to cause great bodily harm. Kephart called Morris’s use of force “indefensible”...

    An hour after a man fired shots indiscriminately in the Van Ness neighborhood on a busy Friday afternoon, Raymond Spencer updated the Wikipedia page for the nearby Edmund Burke School. “A gunman shot at the school on April 22, 2022,” Spencer wrote. “The suspect is still at large.” Police later identified Spencer from Fairfax, Va., as a person of interest in the shooting before announcing that a suspect was found dead that night in a nearby Van Ness apartment surrounded by firearms and ammunition. On Saturday, D.C. Police Chief Robert J. Contee III said the gunman fired more than 100...

    Gov. Abbott should use the power he has under the U.S. Constitution to repel the invasion crossing Texas’s border every single day.In light of President Biden’s announcement he’s ending Title 42 removal authority at the southern border, last week Texas Gov. Greg Abbott announced what he called “unprecedented” actions to stop the flow of illegal immigration. The first part of his plan, while lauded as aggressive, unfortunately falls short of unprecedented and won’t stop the invasion at the southern border. It’s true: the end of Title 42 will ensure a catastrophic surge of illegal immigration heading into the warmer spring...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wasn’t bluffing when he said he would bus illegal aliens dropped off by the federal government in small Texas communities to Washington, D.C. Apparently, DHS simply dropped the illegals off without warning and without asking permission. Many Texas towns were blindsided by Joe Biden’s “catch and release” policy and were begging Abbott for help.White House press secretary Jen Psaki whined that Abbott’s voluntary bus rides were a “publicity stunt.” Well, duh. But immediately after Abbott’s announcement, the federal government stopped dropping illegal aliens in the towns that had been pleading for help.Fox News:“From the [Rio Grande...

The two men – Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 – were taken into custody as more than a dozen FBI agents charged into a luxury apartment building in Southeast Washington on Wednesday evening.

    The cool temperatures that had been helping to prolong the bloom might have taken things too far last night. It dipped into the low to mid-20s, which is nearly 20 degrees below normal for this time of year. And it's into the danger zone for the cherry blossoms. The extent of the damage isn't fully clear yet, but it's looking a bit grim. As of this morning, they're still white/pink. But they're also quite shriveled and droopy and clearly not their usual selves. You might notice in the photos below that there are no close-ups of open flowers–that's because I...
