    Four in ten Democrats agree with removing statues of George Washington as some leftist cities consider doing so, a Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday found. While the survey found 77 percent of Democrats expressing at least a somewhat favorable view of the country’s first president and Revolutionary War hero, 40 percent at least somewhat approve of removing public monuments of the figure. Of those, 21 percent of Democrats “strongly” approve. However, 53 percent at least somewhat disapprove of doing so.

    Community members in an Arlington neighborhood are being told to shelter in place after police say a flare gun was fired inside a home, causing a massive explosion. Arlington County police put out the alert just after 8:15 p.m., saying the incident occurred in the 800 block of N. Burlington Street in the Bluemont neighborhood. Police say as officers were attempting to execute a search warrant at the residence, a suspect fired several rounds inside the home, which led to the explosion. Arlington Fire and EMS said units are at the scene working to put out the fire. They tell...

    The Democrats and the media have long maintained that the 2020 election was “the most secure election in U.S. history,” but, according to court documents, the former general registrar of Prince William County, Va., who was indicted on corruption charges last year, is alleged to have "changed election results" in the 2020 election. "In a county where President Joe Biden received 54% of the vote in the 2020 presidential election to former President Donald Trump's 44%, an election official at the time allegedly 'altered election results"' in the state's reporting system, leading to three grand jury indictments last year,” reports...
  • January 6 Was a Mostly Peaceful Protest

    It has been nearly three years since the January 6 Capitol protest. For just as long, Americans have been force-fed a story about the fateful events of that day: even before the smoke cleared, and in many ways, it never did, the shambolic episode was labeled a deadly “insurrection.” The incoming administration was handed an invaluable support: they could now label anyone who doubted the legitimacy of their weak and doddering incumbent a suspect American, an “election denier” and a threat to “our democracy.” The narrative spread like a virus through the state-affiliated mass media, and became, arguably, the defining...

    Nancy Pelosi’s nepo-baby, Alexandra, was caught on camera admitting essentially that January 6 and the ensuing prosecutions were a marketing gimmick to propagandize the public for the benefit of the Democrat Party. The video, apparently filmed surreptitiously in the style of Project Veritas and released by CitizenLens, reportedly between Pelosi and a January 6 defendant she was courting so as to appear in her documentary of the event, featured Pelosi discussing the political implications of the Jan 6 show trials and their effects on the upcoming 2022 mid-term elections.After the Democrats lose the House and then they get rid of...

    North Virginia doctor Siavash Sobhani stated he was in “shock” after a State Department official allegedly told him his U.S. citizenship was stripped over a bureaucratic reason, according to The Washington Post. Sobhani, 61, who specializes in internal medicine, received a letter from a State Department official after applying for a new passport in February, according to the outlet. What the north Virginia doctor received, however, was not what he expected as he had gone through the passport renewal process several times previously without any issues. Sobhani was informed he should have never been granted citizenship in the first place...

    From the Leftists Ruin Everything file: A Christmas tree farm in Northern Virginia felt this was the perfect season to blast an antisemitic message to customers and passers-by. Cox Farms, a popular destination for pumpkin pickers and Christmas tree shoppers in the D.C. area, put "Ceasefire Now" on their roadside welcome sign and accentuated the antisemitic display with a wooden watermelon. Advertisement The addition of the watermelon wasn't some folksy, farm-y touch, it was an obvious wink and a nod to the "from the river to the sea" crowd, who use the watermelon emoji to show their solidarity with Hamas....

    'Telling 2/3 of the local population' they are unwelcome is not the best business strategy.. Apparently telling two-thirds of the local population they are not welcome at your business is "not the best business decision," suggests a report at National File about the closure of the "Commie Cluck" restaurant. The report noted that Lexington, Virginia, facility actually was named The Red Hen, and it became infamous in a moment for a decision back in the day to eject from the premises then-Trump Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family. Because she's Republican. ... The press secretary's family was ejected...

    If anybody has any doubt about abortionists’ priorities — or Democrats’ dedication to them — one need only read Virginia House Joint Resolution 1.Having taken control of the Virginia House of Delegates and kept control of its Senate, Virginia Democrats signaled their commitment to abortion by prefiling in symbolic first place a bill to write abortion on demand into the Old Dominion’s state constitution.The proposed amendment guarantees abortion on demand for any reason throughout pregnancy. Unlike Ohio’s recently adopted Issue One, it does not even feign the pretense of a post-viability limit on abortion. Instead, any restriction by Virginia would...

    President Joe Biden told a six-year-old girl “I love your ears” during a Thanksgiving celebration at a naval base in Norfolk, Virginia, on Sunday. The octogenarian approached the child, named Catherine, and gushed her ears were “really cool” at the public event, apparently drawn by what appeared to be her Mickey Mouse headwear. He bent down and almost touched the youngster as he hovered near her during the ‘”Friendsgiving'” ahead of the holiday later this week. The public exchange included Biden speculating the girl’s age at 17 – she corrected him to say she is six. The dinner at Naval...

    LEESBURG, VA – Voters in Loudoun County, Virginia, ousted Soros prosecutor Buta Biberaj, replacing her with Republican Bob Anderson as county attorney of the closely watched county. George Soros has wreaked havoc nationwide by funneling enormous sums of his vast wealth into lower-profile public offices with an outsized impact on the direction of the nation. Almost 20 years ago he started his SOS Project, focusing on electing leftwing secretaries of state because they are chief elections officers of their respective states, resulting in major reinterpretations of elections laws. This accelerated a leftward shift in voting laws that would result in...

    Democrats are already gearing up for Virginia’s 2025 elections after the party’s successful showing earlier this month in the state’s off-year elections. Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) announced Monday she is running for governor in 2025, while Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney (D) has reportedly been gathering staff in preparation for a gubernatorial run as well. Democrats are also eager ahead of next year’s federal elections. Eugene Vindman, one of the high-profile witnesses in former President Trump’s first impeachment trial, announced Thursday he is running for Spanberger’s congressional seat.

    Virginia lawmakers demanded a federal probe into the site selection for the new Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters, the Washington Post reported Wednesday. Last week, the General Service Administration issued a press release announcing that it had selected a location in Greenbelt, Maryland, as the home for the new FBI headquarters. According to the government agency, Greenbelt was "the best option for the FBI and the United States government because the site was the lowest cost to taxpayers, provided the greatest transportation access to FBI employees and visitors, and gave the government the most certainty on project delivery schedule."

    The 2023 election cycle wasn’t pretty for Virginia Republicans. Gov. Glenn Youngkin’s attempt to control both chambers of the state legislature in Richmond went up in smoke when Democrats retained control of the state Senate and retook control of the House of Delegates. Was it an "earthquake?" No, Democrats have a slim majority in a lower chamber. Overall, Virginia returned to its 2021 political landscape. Or did it? Republicans likely gain one senate seat and lose a few house seats in Virginia, a state Biden won by 10 points, and Twitter is treating it like a political earthquake.— John...

    Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) will not seek reelection in Virginia’s 7th District next year so she can run for Virginia governor in 2025, according to two people familiar with the Democrat’s plans. Spanberger, who won a third term last year in one of the state’s most competitive swing districts, will announce her gubernatorial bid very soon, according to the two, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the congresswoman had hoped to make her announcement a surprise. One of the two said she was preparing to launch her campaign “imminently.” The other was more specific, saying she would do...

    Virginia Democrats last week took control of the state House and retained control of the state Senate by one seat — but a winning senator may have lied about residing in the district, a situation that could lead to the chamber falling into Republican hands. Democrats are slated to control the state Senate 21-19, but if Ghazala Hashmi is ineligible to hold office because she lied on her campaign paperwork, then a situation could arise where she is replaced by a Republican, and Republican Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears would cast tie-breaking votes. [snip] The form says “knowingly making any untrue...

Louise Lucas said in a video with Pelosi. ... "Democrats have momentum. Virginians will be voting to protect women's rights, fund public education, and address the kitchen table needs of...
