  • Suburbs Rebel Against Trump, Threatening Republicans in Congress

    NY Times ^ | November 8, 2017 | Alexander Burns and Jonathan Martin
    The American suburbs appear to be in revolt against President Trump after a muscular coalition of college-educated voters and racial and ethnic minorities on Tuesday dealt the Republican Party a thumping rejection and propelled a diverse class of Democrats into office. From the tax-obsessed suburbs of New York City to high-tech neighborhoods outside Seattle to the sprawling, polyglot developments of Fairfax and Prince William County, Va., voters shunned Republicans up and down the ballot in off-year elections. Leaders in both parties said the elections amounted to an earsplitting alarm bell for Republicans ahead of the 2018 elections, when the party’s...

    “What a nice Halloween,” my wife remarked as we turned out the lights last Tuesday night. Well, not so much in nearby Oakton, Virginia, where Jamie Stevenson, a new homeowner, walked past her neighbor’s house and saw “a racist display.” “She knew it was a Halloween decoration,” the Washington Post reported, “but she also saw in it something more sinister: a lynching.” Stevenson snapped a picture and then contacted the homeowners’ association and the friendly hate merchants at the Southern Poverty Law Center. But she didn’t forget about the perpetrator. “What you appear to be displaying is an effigy of...

    WASHINGTON — Fairfax County Public Schools, the largest public school system in the D.C. region, is asking for financial donations to help cover the substantial costs associated with renaming J.E.B. Stuart High School in Falls Church, Virginia. Following a vote to rename the school last week, county officials set up a website, asking people to send in money. So far, the effort has generated more than $8,000. Officials said any donations will help with name-change expenses, which otherwise would need to be covered entirely by county taxpayers. The full cost of changing the school’s name is expected to be somewhere...

    Republican Ed Gillespie has come under attack from some public figures, who dispute his assertion that there are over 2,000 MS-13 — Mara Salvatrucha — gang members in Fairfax County, Virginia. Gillespie is currently running for governor in Virginia, and throughout his campaign, he has underscored his opposition to sanctuary cities by highlighting the presence of violent criminal gangs in Northern Virginia, including his home county of Fairfax. In an attempt to debunk Gillespie’s MS-13 figures, Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler claimed this morning that there are in fact 1,400 MS-13 members in Fairfax County rather than 2,000 – despite...

    Multiple women in relationships with Imran Awan, the indicted former IT aide for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have recently called Virginia law enforcement and alleged being abused by him, police reports obtained under Virginia’s Freedom of Information Act show.

A third woman claimed she was being kept “in captivity.” The third woman is Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, who said in...

    Comic delight follows when you are attacked by NBC in a story written by a former fact checker for Rolling Stone . That’s what reporter Jane C. Timm did when she wrote a fact-optional attack on President Trump’s election integrity commission , and me in particular. Timm’s piece is a case study in how rabid anti-Trump interests are undermining the priorities of the electorate that won President Trump the White House. Timm’s attack on the election integrity commission also serves as a nifty example of the furtive assembly line that produces these anti-Trump attacks: Funding by extremist foundations, harvesting...

    Col.

    Imran Awan, a congressional aide arrested by the FBI after wiring $300,000 to Pakistan and misrepresenting the purpose, had previously wired money to the country and was frantically liquidating multiple real estate properties on the day he was arrested, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned. Imran's real estate properties provide a source of money that could be sent directly to Pakistan when two upcoming home sales close. Prosecutors have since filed paperwork saying they fear "the dissipation of the proceeds of the fraud and destruction of evidence in other locations." [Snip] Authorities released him with a GPS...

    The House Democrat IT staffer who was arrested last week for bank fraud, was reportedly liquidating assets, even on the day of his arrest.

    One of the undocumented immigrants who died in a stifling tractor-trailer here Saturday was a 19-year-old who grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from a Fairfax County high school before getting in trouble with the law and being deported to his native Guatemala, according to court records and government officials. He was sneaking back into the United States. Frank G. Fuentes was one of at least six Guatemalans packed into a poorly ventilated truck with scores of other migrants who had crossed the border illegally, said Cristy Andrino, the consul of Guatemala in McAllen, Tex. Frank G. Fuentes was...

    Johari Abdul-Malik has worked to pull his embattled mosque "out of the fire" too many times, and on Friday he decided he had enough. Abdul-Malik, an imam and the public face of Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va., one of the nation's largest and oft-embattled mosques, resigned after he said the mosque's board failed to adequately address a brewing controversy over the banned practice of female genital mutilation. The mosque's lead imam, Shaker Elsayed, drew a wave of condemnation from Abdul-Malik and young Muslim activists earlier in the week after he appeared to endorse a certain form of...

    Major Crimes Division detectives from the Child Exploitation Unit recently conducted a three-day operation targeting online sexual predators. Detectives, posing as juveniles, went online and within a very short period of time, received solicitations and sexually explicit images from men wanting to meet the “child” for the purpose of engaging in inappropriate sexual activity. The suspect and “child” would arrange a time and place to meet and when the suspect arrived, he was taken into custody. The hard work of our detectives, along with those from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Special Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation...

Student “Jack Doe” and his parents sued Fairfax County Public Schools last year, saying the new protected categories weren’t defined and Jack could be suspended for saying or doing anything that potentially offended a transgender peer. {..snip..}
