    It doesn’t get much more Northern Virginia than this. Traffic woes and construction delays are daily gripes on the local Facebook group, “Western Prince William Chatter.” Then Steve came along -- and brought joy to the group's 20,000-plus members. "It seems he is the light at the end of the tunnel when you're STUCK in that horrible traffic! Thanks for entertaining us Steve and for those calling him Bob, just no," one Facebooker wrote. Before WPWC members gave him a name, Steve was simply known as a rubber tire crane. He came to the Manassas area to lift 10 concrete...

    House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) is asking four other top committee leaders to share any documents or materials they think could be related to his committee’s investigation into possible obstruction and potential abuses of power by President Trump. In a letter on Thursday, Nadler wrote to Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Oversight and Reform Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Financial Services Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and Foreign Affairs Chairman Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) to ask them to provide such information as Nadler's committee weighs whether to introduce articles of impeachment against the president. "I am writing to request information, including documents...
  • Baltimore abandons surveillance plane because things are going so well

    08/22/2019 1:30:39 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | August 22, 2019 | JAZZ SHAW
    A couple of years ago, the city of Baltimore launched a pilot program (no pun intended) that involved having a private contractor fly a surveillance plane over the city almost constantly, recording high-resolution video of the activity on the streets. It was surprisingly successful, resulting in police being able to retrace the movements of people engaged in shootings and other crimes back to their homes or to their post-crime destinations.The public wasn’t initially informed of the program and when word leaked out there were complaints from the usual digital privacy advocates. The program was eventually terminated. This year, however, the...
  • Maryland schools aim to include LGBT and disability rights in history curriculum

    Washington Post ^ | August 16, 2019 | Samantha Schmidt
    Maryland school officials are developing curriculum standards for history classes to include lessons about the fight for civil rights for the LGBT community and Americans with disabilities. If the changes are approved, Maryland would join at least four other states that have taken steps to require public schools to teach lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, which advocates say has long been absent from textbooks and classroom lessons. Last month, dozens of state lawmakers signed a letter calling on Maryland school officials to craft new curriculum standards addressing the rights of LGBT and disabled communities. The letter specifically mentioned the...
  • NBC Dismisses Blaming the Shooter as Just a Talking Point of ‘Gun Control Opponents’

    08/20/2019 8:51:01 AM PDT · by rktman · 21 replies ^ | 8/19/2019 | scott whitlock
    NBC over the weekend pushed gun control repeatedly, casually dismissing calls for focusing culpability on the perpetrators of mass shooters as simply a talking point of “gun control opponents.” The Today show also touted using children to promote the gun control agenda. On Sunday, reporter Mike Viqueira sounded annoyed that Donald Trump would blame the shooters: “At his New Hampshire rally, Thursday, no mention of checks on criminal records, only for mental health history. The President echoing a familiar argument of gun control opponents.” He then played a clip of Trump noting, “It’s not the gun that pulls the trigger....

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor who in December stepped down as Trump’s U.N. ambassador, did not approve. “This is so unnecessary,” she tweeted, along with a rolling-eyes emoiji.

    Democrats who keep telling us that vote fraud is rare and insignificant fight like hell to make sure the evidence remains buried — even when there are obvious danger signs such as exists in Montgomery County, Maryland, where there are more registered voters than resident citizens. You might think officials would be anxious to find out why that is and would be eager to clean up their voter rolls. But Maryland officials fought in federal court to prevent Judicial Watch from obtaining voter data lists. And they got skunked. Judicial Watch announced that a federal court has ordered the State...

  • This Is Why Woodstock 50 Was Just Canceled

    08/13/2019 8:00:47 PM PDT · by Tolerance Sucks Rocks · 57 replies
    Of the rock festivals of the sixties, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair was by far the most famous. Held on a 600-acre dairy farm near Bethel, N.Y. on August 15–17, 1969, the festival is the iconic representation of the drug-addled culture and sexual revolution that upended American life. This August marks the fiftieth anniversary of the era-defining event. Some have called for celebrating with another concert. The occasion is hardly a cause for celebration—so many of the cultural changes after Woodstock had catastrophic consequences. Most do not know that the concert was a disaster—even from an organizational point of...

    Glen Burnie, Md. (WJLA) - A family says they are left heartbroken and saddened after they were asked to leave an Outback Steakhouse restaurant in Glen Burnie, Maryland on Saturday night because of their son who has neurological challenges. Amanda Braun's son, Killian, was born with a neurological disorder that affects his speech called Childhood Apraxia of Speech. The disorder affects Killian in many ways especially communication and behavior. Sometimes when he speaks, his words are unclear. However, Amanda says she's never had problems before the incident at Outback occurred and that Killian was not acting out of the ordinary....

    Newsbusters ^ | July 28, 2019 | P.J. Gladnick
    Jake Tapper had an elephant in the room in the form of Bernie Sanders on Sunday's CNN State of the Union and very noticeably avoided addressing his hypocrisy in slamming President Donald Trump for tweeting critically about the living conditions in Baltimore. In 2015, Sanders made very similar remarks as Trump about Baltimore, comparing it to a Third World country filled with hundreds of uninhabitable buildings. So could Tapper have been unaware of the socialist Senator from Vermont's criticisms of Baltimore? Perhaps but only if he had been hiding under a rock for the past couple of days. The Sanders...

    President Trump said Monday that Democrats blasting him for decrying conditions in Baltimore should also label Sen. Bernie Sanders “a racist” for calling Baltimore a “Third World country” and a "disgrace" in 2015 if they want to be consistent. “Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard!” Trump tweeted. “The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe even to new heights of success and glory, but not...

    DES MOINES — Democratic presidential candidates descended on Iowa in a flurry of activity this weekend, attending the annual Wing Ding dinner and speaking at the Iowa State Fair, meeting as many voters as they could and kicking off the primary season in earnest. Top-tier candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders attracted huge crowds who followed their every move as they ate corn dogs and looked at the cow made of butter. And then, more quietly, there was Bill Weld. Weld, the former governor of Massachusetts, arrived at the fair Sunday morning as a drizzly rain started to...

It was the only distinguishing feature of the man who recently broke into our home. I’m showing it to you to crowdsource the logo. Please let me know if you’ve seen it (or him) before,” Cummings tweeted on Saturday. The following day she crowdsourced information on the images by posting an...

    Former MK Michael Oren: Delegation is part of Democrats fight for the "soul of the party.” The 41 US House Democrats who arrived in Israel on Monday on a trip sponsored by an AIPAC affiliated charity are doing more than “just” showing mainstream Democratic support for Israel, they are wresting control of the party from the high-profile Progressive wing trying to hijack it. A part of this wing – embodied by congresswomen Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Alexandira Ocasio-Cortez – despises Israel and AIPAC with a venom that sometimes crosses the line into antisemitism. And two organizations identified with this...
