  • Donald Trump, 77, confuses Biden with Barack Obama AGAIN at Virginia rally - marking the third time he's made the same gaffe in the last six months

    Donald Trump has confused Joe Biden for Barack Obama for the third time in less than six months at a rally in Virginia. The mistake came as Trump was addressing a crowd of thousands of supporters at the Greater Richmond Convention Center on Saturday night. He was urging voters to show up at the polls to vote for him, despite his double loss in the blue-trending state in 2016 and 2020. When discussing his Democrat opponent, he attempted to take aim at Biden for not having the respect of Putin - but missed the punchline by mixing up his presidents....
  • Inside The FBI-Tainted Gretchen Whitmer ‘Kidnap Plot’ You’ve Heard Almost Nothing About

    In a fiery exchange last month, CNN anchorwoman Abby Phillip told GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy that there was “no evidence” to support his claim that federal agents abetted protesters at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.Ramaswamy shot back that the FBI conspicuously has never denied that law enforcement agents were on duty in the crowd. He argued that federal officials have repeatedly “lied” to the American people about not only that investigation but one that has gotten much less attention: the alleged failed plot to kidnap and kill Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan in 2020.“It was entrapment,” Ramaswamy...

    Virginia Lieutenant Governor Winsome Earle-Sears spoke to the legislature about “respect and dignity” after a state senator walked out of the chamber during a session. That senator was Democrat Danica A. Roem, 39, who became the first transgender member of the House of Delegates upon being elected in 2017. Roem’s exit came after being referred to as “sir” by Earle-Sears during an exchange about the number of votes needed to pass a new bill. “Madame President, how many votes would it take to pass this bill with the emergency clause?” Roem is heard asking Earle-Sears who was presiding over the...

    Forgotten History ^ | 22/3/23 | Colin Heaton
    Anthony Johnson was a man known for achieving wealth in the early 17th-century Colony of Virginia. Born in Angola, he was one of the first African Americans whose right to own a slave for life was recognized by the Virginia courts. Held as an indentured servant in 1621, he earned his freedom after several years, and was granted land by the colony. He later became a tobacco farmer in Maryland. He attained great wealth after completing his term as an indentured servant, and has been referred to as "'the black patriarch' of the first community of Negro property owners in...

    Abraham Lincoln didn’t just free the slaves and preserve the Union. America’s 16th (and arguably greatest-ever) president also pardoned the current chief executive’s paternal great-great-grandfather after he was sentenced to hard labor at a military prison, newly unearthed documents show. President Biden’s ancestor, Moses Robinette, was put in the dock after he came to blows with one John Alexander, a fellow civilian employee of the Union Army, on March 21, 1864, according to records found by the Washington Post. Alexander, a brigade wagon master, was left bloodied by wounds that came from Robinette’s pocket knife and the presidential forebear was...

    Documents discovered at the National Archives in Washington show that former President Abraham Lincoln pardoned the great-great-grandfather of President Joe Biden, a Union Army civilian employee named Moses Robinette, The Washington Post reported Monday. Joseph Robinette Biden's ancestral line has long been known and includes Moses Robinette among his paternal ancestors from western Maryland, but little has been chronicled about the man until his court-martial records were discovered. The story dates to March 21, 1864 during the Civil War, when a fight broke out in one of the mess tents near Beverly Ford, Virginia, between Robinette and Union Army civilian...

    A car drove off the end of the Virginia Beach pier and plunged into the sea, sparking a rescue effort by police. Around 6.50am Saturday, a car crashed through the barriers of the 14th Street pier and sped down the length of it. It braked briefly before driving through the wooden balustrade at the end of the pier and over the edge, as police say it is now 'at the bottom of the ocean.' A young woman standing on the beach caught the incident on camera when she heard a loud crash and started filming. Virginia Beach police are working...

    President Joe Biden holds just a three-point advantage over former President Donald Trump in Virginia — a state Trump plans to make a “heavy play” for, assuming he wins the nomination — in a hypothetical two-way general election race, according to a Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) poll. The poll, published on Tuesday, shows that 43 percent of the 812 registered voter respondents would back Biden versus 40 percent who would support Trump. Four percent would vote for someone else, five percent would not vote, and six percent would remain undecided. Biden’s lead falls within the plus or minus 5.46 percent...
