    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) is demanding answers from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) after video recently surfaced of an employee brutally beating a 73-year-old Vietnam veteran at a VA clinic in Atlanta, Georgia, according to a letter first obtained by Breitbart News. Roy wrote to VA Secretary Denis McDonough in a letter sent on June 27 about the assault, which occurred at the McPherson VA Clinic: “This vile display of behavior is horrifying and antithetical to the VA’s critical mission of caring for ‘those who have borne the battle’ in defense of our nation.” The assailant, Lawrence F. Gaillard,...

    Thomasville attorney Chris West won the Republican nomination in Georgia’s 2nd Congressional District, defeating former U.S. Army captain and Yale Law student Jeremy Hunt in Tuesday’s runoff election.

    Virginia Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears called on Attorney General Merrick Garland to “do his job” and prosecute pro-choice protesters outside of the homes of U.S. Supreme Court justices. Sears, noting that Garland moved to arrest parents for speaking out at school board meetings, accused Democrats of picking and choosing who they went after. She said allowing the protests over the potential overturning of Roe v. Wade was “mob rule.” “We’re not tolerating it,” Sears said of the protests. “In fact, our governor has had state police outside of the homes this whole time from the very first time it started....

    On February 14, 2022, the Virginia House voted to repeal the controversial “red flag” law, which gave the power to any attorney or law enforcement officer in Virginia to ask a judge for a “substantial risk order” to confiscate guns from a person who poses a “substantial risk” to himself or others. The law also created a registry of such orders. The bill had passed the Committee on Public Safety by an 11 to 10 vote. It passed the house 52 – 47.The controversial Red Flag bill had narrowly passed in 2020 while Governor Northam was in power and Democrats...

The email was sent on Feb. 1, by John Clark, the Director of Safety and Security for Loudoun County Public Schools to the district’s principals. “If you determine that an individual should be trespassed then a school...

    Gizmodo reported on the leaks. A hostile offshoot of the defunct neo-Nazi group Vanguard America, Patriot Front formed in late August 2017 less than three weeks after the white nationalist “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. (James Alex Fields Jr., who was convicted in December 2018 of killing 32-year-old anti-racist protester Heather Heyer at the rally, was seen there holding a shield emblazoned with the VA logo. VA later denied he was a member.) The split from VA followed months of infighting between Thomas Rousseau, the Front’s founder, and VA leader Dillon Irizarry, who was seen accusing Rousseau in...

    Charlottesville, Virginia (CNN)A jury has awarded more than $26 million in damages after finding the White nationalists who organized and participated in a violent 2017 rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, liable on a state conspiracy claim and other claims. The jury in the federal civil trial said Tuesday it could not reach a verdict on two federal conspiracy claims. The violence during the Unite the Right rally turned the Virginia city into another battleground in America's culture wars and highlighted growing polarization. It was also an event that empowered White supremacists and nationalists to demonstrate their beliefs in public rather than...

    @daveweigel Asked Youngkin (at RGA meeting) about "going on offense" on abortion, as he said he'd do if he won. "A pain threshold bill is something that I would entertain," he said, but it's not part of "day one plan" - that's schools, parole board, cutting back regulations.

    After keeping Virginia schools closed for over a year and repeatedly moving the goal posts on reopening, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten successfully delivered the state to Republican Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin last week. Despite appearing at a final campaign rally for Democrat Terry McAuliffe, parents showed up to vote against her endorsement and anti-parent education policies. Now, Weingarten is finally admitting it's time for a pandemic off ramp. "It was clear that vaccines for teachers helped us reopen schools. Maybe it’s vaccines for kids helping us get to an off ramp for masks and getting to a new...

    Two months after the Pentagon began requiring all troops to get the coronavirus vaccine or face dismissal, the vast majority have now had shots, in part because none received a religious exemption, military officials said. — NYT Politics (@nytpolitics) November 4, 2021 Troops who refuse the coronavirus vaccine won’t see any extra protections or leniency in how their dismissals are handled, Defense and Veterans Affairs officials confirmed Wednesday. Instead, decisions on whether to give those individuals other-than-honorable discharges — potentially blocking them from a host of veterans benefits — will be left to local commanders, and their cases won’t...

    Do You Know What’s Happening in Virginia Public Schools? You should. Virginia state law explicitly states that “a parent has a fundamental right to make decisions concerning the upbringing, education, and care of the parent’s child.” (Va. Code Ann. § 1-240.1) But government officials and schools are secretly working overtime to take away parent’s rights, to make sure that most people—including many parents—don’t know what’s actually happening in their children’s schools.
