  • Eight Indicted for Criminal Activity During May 30, 2020 Pittsburgh Protest

    07/29/2020 2:22:17 PM PDT · by ransomnote · 8 replies ^ | July 29, 2020 | U.S. Attorney’s Office Western District of Pennsylvania
    PITTSBURGH – Eight Pittsburgh-area residents have been charged in six separate indictments for criminal activity perpetuated during a civil disorder in the City of Pittsburgh, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today. The alleged criminal acts occurred while Pittsburgh Police officers were engaged in responding to the violent demonstration in downtown Pittsburgh on May 30, 2020 at the same time that many other citizens were lawfully protesting over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The indictments were returned under seal on July 22, 2020, and the final two indictments were unsealed today."Throwing IEDs and bricks at...
  • Trump said, “macaca!” won’t work this cycle; ”We have no time for political correctness”

    Coach is Right ^ | 8/10/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Donald Trump’s response to a snarky and incompetent Megyn Kelly will not be this election cycle’s “Macaca moment.” America has been there and won’t do that again. Nine years ago Virginia Republican Senator George Allen, who was running for re-election, called an India Indian young man “macaca.” The Democrat controlled media had already seen the Rahm Emmanuel – David Axelrod cabal turn nothing into something in the Foley affair so they decided to charge Allen with the Leftists’ capital crime of “Using demeaning and insensitive language toward a minority.” In short order they had Allen, who was favored to be...

    This David Weigel post on Friday reminded me that I should use the final election data to check a point I’d talked a fair amount about right after the election: that Romney ran ahead of the Republican Senate candidates in tightly contested races. My AEI colleague Caroline Kitchens went to the official state election-result sites and pulled the numbers, which are better than what we had in mid-November.In Wisconsin, Virginia, and Texas, Romney ran just barely ahead of Tommy Thompson (by 0.03 percent), George Allen (0.3 percent), and Ted Cruz (0.7 percent), respectively.In Nebraska, Ohio, and Arizona, Romney ran...

    ALEXANDRIA -- Defeated Republican U.S.Senate candidate George Allen said Monday he will not seek elective office again. "I'm grateful for the support, generosity and the votes of over 1.7 million people, but I have no intention of running for office again,'' Allen said during a 45-minute interview in his Alexandria office.
  • Camp Bastion Families Want Answers About Afghanistan

    While Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boozes it up in Australia and the Pentagon grapples with more floozy eruptions, outraged military families are still waiting for answers about the forgotten 9/14 attack on Camp Bastion. Muckrakers and distraction engineers are having a front-page field day with the so-called "sex scandal." But for surviving relatives and colleagues of heroic Marine Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell, it's the national security scandal at Afghanistan's Camp Bastion that deserves headline coverage. There's been a virtual blackout of the alarming story in the national press. As I reported last month, the meticulously...
  • Senate Elections to Watch on Tuesday

    Most Americans will focus on election results in Ohio and Florida to see who rides those states’ Electoral College votes into the White House. But the winner of the presidential race will not automatically control the 2013 legislative agenda. Congress still matters. The battle for control of the U.S. Senate is vitally important and just as hard-fought as the top-of-the-ticket contest. Currently, a caucus of 51 Democrats and two liberal Independents rule the upper chamber. Since the Vice President can cast tie-breaking votes in the Senate, Republicans would have to pick up three seats to gain a working majority...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 24 ,2012
    An elderly man in a widely seen Democratic TV ad who assails Virginia Senate candidate George Allen for backing partial privatization of Social Security, possibly threatening his fixed income, is a prominent Democratic trial lawyer known for defending former Redskins owner Jack Kent Cooke in his legal tussles with flamboyant former wife Suzanne Cooke. In the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee ad blanketing Virginia, Edwin Williams is portrayed as a home-bound retiree on fixed income. "I count on Social Security and and I don't want Washington politicians like George Allen privatizing it," says the still active lawyer. The ad does not...

    The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed former Virginia Gov. George Allen over Democratic Senate opponent Tim Kaine, on Saturday. “George Allen has a proven record of defending the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his strong support of our rights, George Allen has earned an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.” Kaine, who is also a former governor of the state, got an “F” from the 4-million member organization. “As chairman of the Democratic National Committee, Tim Kaine strongly supported the nomination of Sonia Sotomayor for the U.S. Supreme Court...

    A poll from Gravis Marketing and Capitol Correspondent released on Tuesday gives Republican Mitt Romney a five-point lead over Democrat Barack Obama in the Virginia presidential race, and also gives GOP Senate candidate George Allen a five-point lead over Democrat Tim Kaine. The poll differs significantly from recent polling in both races that had consistently given Obama a small lead over Romney for president and had the Kaine-Allen race a virtual deadlock. Gravis Marketing, in a press release on its poll, reported that it had polled Virginia in August and had measured a 44 percent-to-40 percent lead for Obama in...

    ATR ^ | 2012-08-10 | Paul Blair
    Yesterday, Democrat Tim Kaine asked his Republican opponent to join him in taking a “balanced” approach to avoiding the looming sequestration cuts. Unfortunately Tim Kaine seems to suffer amnesia on his attempt to implement the same kind of “balanced” approach while he served as Virginia’s Governor. Such an approach included billions of dollars in new and higher taxes. Kaine called on George Allen to “set aside his Pledge,” and work for a “responsible path forward.” Translated, what Tim Kaine means is that he’s asking Allen to break his written commitment to Virginia taxpayers and join with him in an approach...

    E.W. Jackson 'declaring war' on Obama, Kaine for 'ignoring Constitution' For months, former Sen. George Allen has been the prohibitive favorite to win the Republican nomination in his quest to win back the U.S. Senate seat he lost to Jim Webb six years ago. There have been no new public polls showing a major shift in the race but GOP hopeful E.W. Jackson says voters in the commonwealth can expect a shocking result next Tuesday. Jackson says internal polling gives him confidence that he will not only challenge Allen but score the biggest upset to date in the 2012 cycle....

    Norfolk-May 8: E.W. Jackson will be holding a press conference at the corner of Brambleton and Church Ave in Norfolk (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Plaza) near the site of the Norfolk Mob attack on two innocent Virginian Pilot reporters on April 14. Bishop Jackson will be challenging the community, the media and all levels of government from the President to City Council and School Board Members, to combat the “racializing” of incidents and the exploitation of those incidents for political purposes. He is inviting religious and political groups to unite in a vision of America where violence against innocent...

I will help lead the fight to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as ‘Obamacare’.

I will only support nominees to the Supreme Court and other federal courts who are strict constitutionalists. I will vote against legislation which allocates power to the federal government that is not given to...

    The Examiner ^ | May 1, 2012 | Richard Sincere
    Three of the four candidates seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Virginia agree that efforts to repeal the 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution – which authorizes the direct election of senators – are impractical at best. In post-debate interviews in Roanoke on Saturday, where all four candidates participated in a forum sponsored by the Republican Party of Virginia, the candidates expressed their views on the 17th Amendment in response to questions posed by the Charlottesville Libertarian Examiner. ‘Repeal Amendment’ alternative Jamie Radtke said that she does not think the repeal efforts are viable, “so I’ve been...

    Allen’s own wife and family have donated money to Planned Parenthood in the past. In 2000, Allen responded to a questionnaire, saying that abortion should be legal prior to viability. The Republican National Coalition for Life said Allen’s view, “…can only be described as pro-choice, not pro-life.” Again, it’s not that Allen is crazy for abortion, but he is not one of us on life.

    On September 25, the 23rd Arab-American Candidates’ Night Dinner was held in Virginia, attended by 46 Democrats and Republicans seeking office, with former governor and current Democratic Senate candidate, Tim Kaine, as a major speaker. The dinner honored a top Muslim Brotherhood official affiliated with Hamas named Jamal Barzinji, an inconvenient and overlooked fact for Kaine’s campaign team. Tim Kaine was the governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010 and then was the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was on the short-list to become President Obama’s running mate. He is now running for Senate and will likely face...
