    Democrats are already worried about turnout this November, particularly because polling shows that the youngest voters – college students in particular – are the least enthusiastic and the least likely to show up at the polls. That gap extends up through the age bracket of the youngest millennials but mostly focuses on what’s now being called Generation Z. In Virginia, however, it appears that enthusiasm isn’t the only problem they have. Young voters there are complaining that they can’t mail in their absentee ballots. Why? Because many of them can’t figure out where and how to purchase stamps to send...

    More than 3,000 foreign nationals were removed from voter rolls across 13 sanctuary jurisdictions from 2006 to 2018, according to Public Interest Legal Foundation research released Monday.

The breakdown of jurisdictions and foreign voters removed is as follows: Arlington, Virginia — 145 voters Chesterfield County, Virginia — 321 voters Chicago, Illinois — 232 voters DeKalb County, Georgia — 11 voters Essex County, New Jersey...

    The Fairfax County School Board voted unanimously on Thursday to approve updated language in its sex education curriculum that is more inclusive to LGBTQ and transgender people. The board brought in a special panel that recommended changing the term “biological sex” to “sex assigned at birth,” which the panel said aligns with recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Psychological Association and the American College of Physicians. The board also changed sex education policies to provide more information to female students regarding contraception, as well as education on pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, for male students. However, the new...

    A 61-year-old Reston man is facing several charges stemming from a 2017 incident in which his dog was found deceased at an archery range. Officers responded to the private Northern Virginia Archers Club Range, adjacent to Fountainhead Regional Park, on July 15 of last summer after someone called to report they found a deceased dog that appeared to have been shot with a firearm. The dog, a shepherd mix, had a collar, but no tags or any identifying information. Further investigation determined the dog did have a microchip, which led officers to medical records and a possible owner. Animal...

    Fairfax County, Virginia Sheriff Stacey Kincaid’s announcement she would cancel an agreement with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to honor “detainers” for illegal alien criminals and arrestees has prompted pro-American immigration reformers to condemn the move for turning Fairfax into a “sanctuary county.” In the affluent suburban Washington, DC county, criminals and arrestees who ICE believes are illegal aliens subject to deportation will no longer be held for up to 48 after their release date so federal agents can pick them up. Virginia Republican U.S. Senate candidate Corey Stewart, who led an effort to force jails to report illegal...

    The Justice Department on Wednesday threatened to subpoena 23 jurisdictions across the country if they don’t turn over information about their sanctuary city policies toward illegal immigrants. In letters to New York City, Chicago, San Francisco and other jurisdictions, the Justice Department demanded records relating to whether these localities are "unlawfully restricting information sharing by law enforcement officers with federal immigration authorities." “I continue to urge all jurisdictions under review to reconsider policies that place the safety of their communities and their residents at risk,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities...

    With a population of 1.14 million, Fairfax County, Virginia is the largest county in the Washington DC metropolitan area. It is the home of government workers, administration officials, media personalities and, lately hordes of MS-13 gang members. Tuesday Fairfax County chose the MS-13 gang members and other criminals who have systematically and routinely broken immigration laws as well as other laws in the county over the legal, law-abiding citizens of the Northern Virginia enclave. And, the politicians responsible for the move appear to be pretty proud of their move:

It is the first time Strzok has been seen since the revelation that he and Lisa Page, a senior FBI lawyer, exchanged 10,000 texts in which they called Trump an 'idiot' whose election was 'f***ing terrifying'. The disclosure has led to hearings in Congress, with the deputy FBI...

    WASHINGTON — Drivers on eastbound Interstate 66 saw tolls fluctuate frantically and top out at almost $35 during the Monday morning commute, the first with dynamic tolling on the highway.

By 9 a.m., prices were back down to below $10, said WTOP’s traffic reporter Dave Dildine, who spent the morning driving on I-66 to report the latest conditions. “It’s going to take some time for us to...
