    I'm sure that everyone has now heard that Governor Northam has declared a state of emergency and banned the carrying & possession of weapons on Capitol Square in Richmond from 5:00 pm Friday, January 17 to 5:00 pm on Tuesday, January 21. VCDL believes that this gun ban is illegal. Our legal team is looking at our options and we will keep you advised as soon as we have a definitive plan. As it stands now, you can carry on 9th Street, or other nearby streets, as long as you don't go into the fenced-in Capitol grounds area (or into...

    Murder charges were dropped against an Alabama man accused of killing his wife 30 years ago — after the couple’s friend confessed to the slaying just hours before the trial got underway, officials said. The stunning announcement came Monday as 55-year-old Carl Harris was set to face trial for the 1990 murder of Tracy Harris, who was found dead in the Choctawhatchee River with signs of strangulation. Ozark Police said 54-year-old Jeff Beasley, a former friend of the couple, admitted to the murder on Sunday — providing very specific details about the case. “The new evidence was information that had...
  • It's All About Trust (2A Sactuary Letter to the Editor)

    letter to the editor submitted | pending | self
    Editor, #################### There may be no better description of the Virginia state government’s ongoing agenda than the old adage, “What you are seeing depends on where you are standing.” For me it all comes down to trust, in this case trusting elected politicians. Decrying Republican politicians is a waste of words as their fecklessness when in the majority led us to this situation. Future scholars will wonder how it was that GOP politicians could walk upright, given that most Homo republicanus were creatures without a spine. On the other hand, Democrat politicians have clear agendas they pursue with relentless commitment....

    Dear friends, the more I study and watch the rapid rise of the American Left here in America in the last 20 years, it is clearer to me more than EVER that they are indeed the political party of Saul Alinsky's Master! Their absolute demonic hatred for America, Americans, our Founding Fathers, Constitutional Law and a President that loves this nation and founding has been EXPONENTIAL and again TOTALLY DEMONIC!! These are sold out FULLY to demonic lawlessness and are at war with their RIGHTEOUS ETERNAL Creator from top to bottom (Rom. 1:18-32)! No wonder Satan has such a hold...

    By: Trevor Loudon | The Epoch Times A shadowy new alliance led by pro-China communists plans to mobilize 40 million new Democratic voters for the 2020 election. This group, firstly known as the State-based Power Caucus and now simply the State Power Caucus, has the ability to mobilize thousands of volunteers and paid staff in New York, California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Minnesota, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, Mississippi, Virginia, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. The State Power Caucus has already had a major political impact in Virginia, Florida, Kentucky, Texas, California, and several other states. This alliance could decide...
  • Gun ‘sanctuaries’ compared to slavery, ‘dangerous,’ ‘ugly,’ ‘disturbing’

    Washington Examiner ^ | January 05, 2020 | Paul Bedard
    A new line of attack on Virginia’s fast-growing gun sanctuary movement, which is propelling similar pro-gun efforts in other states, compares it to slavery, drawing criticism from movement leaders who have won support in 91% of the state’s counties. In the latest Washington Post slam on the movement, dubbed “vigilantism” in a recent editorial, the paper gave space Sunday to a critic who said the “thinking” behind the organic movement is what propelled slavery and opposed the civil rights movement. Peter Galuszka called the movement “disturbing,” “reactionary,” “hysteria,” “ugly,” and “dangerous.” In linking it to slavery, he wrote, “A sad...

    This week, children may learn about that greedy man, Ebenezer Scrooge. Scrooge is selfish until ghosts scare him into thinking about others’ well-being, not just his own. Good for the ghosts. But the way Scrooge addresses others’ needs matters. Today’s advocates of equality, compassion, increased spending on education, health care, etc., say “we care” but demand that government do the work. Controlling other people with the power of government doesn’t prove you care. If you want to help the poor, clean the environment, improve the arts. Great! Please do. But if you are compassionate, then you’ll spend your own money...

    Just ran across this outstanding, very professionally done video by Steve Huff, the CEO of Accuracy X, Inc. which I understand to be located in Virginia. (I had not heard of him or Accuracy X until finding the video on Youtube a little while ago.) I see it has almost 206,000 views already, so I'm shocked that no one has posted it on FR. As January, 2020 rolls around, whenever the 2nd Amendment is discussed almost all talk eventually turn to what is going on in Virginia with their planned attack on the 2nd Amendment and the right to keep...

    State Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell (D-Phil), the first Muslim to be elected to the Pennsylvania legislature, has pleaded guilty to charges of embezzlement, record tampering, and perjury. In the nine months since taking office, she stole more than $500,000 from Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security disability funds, as well as donations to Motivations Education and Consultation Associates (MECA), a charity she established to allegedly serve the mentally ill and drug addicted poor in her neighborhood. She used the money to buy furs, trips to Mexico, a Porsche, pay utility bills, pay her granddaughter's private school tuition, and pay campaign debts. The...

    The first question you have to ask yourself is what you hope to gain by putting a government target on your back, and those in your family. In 1997 I hosted a national militia meeting on my property in Texas; it was a large encampment of militia leaders and members from all over the country. We even made the cover of Time Magazine as a “militia hotspot.” What was the goal of this get-together? Now back to the purpose of the meeting. Militia leaders were being picked off by the federales via entrapment schemes similar to what happened to Randy...

    Funny how the environmental objectives of the "Save the Planet from the Flying Global Warming Monster" squad and that of Marxism line up so neatly. Of course you shouldn't have personal autonomy or private property. It's bad for the 'planet'. And by the planet, we mean the red planet. So it's no surprise that The Nation, where the synergy of the red and the green meet, should roll out a story like this, "If we want to keep cities safe in the face of climate change, we need to seriously question the ideal of private homeownership." ... And give up...

    Earlier this year, disgraced Virginia Governor Ralph Northam tried pushing through his state’s assembly some of the strictest gun control policies ever introduced in the Commonwealth. The measures inevitably failed but Democrats gained a small majority in both chambers in November. The first task? Resurrect these dead bills. Now Virginia is facing two fresh laws; the banning of semi-automatic rifles as well as a registry of those already owned. The new legislation is being introduced as gun confiscatory laws since they do not grandfather in existing firearms that would be banned and make current gun owners felons facing up to...

    Virginia House Del. Ibraheem Samirah introduced a bill that would override local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in every neighborhood, changing the character of quiet suburbs.Oregon passed a similar bill, following moves by cities such as Minneapolis; Austin, Texas; and Seattle.Proponents say urban lifestyles are better for the environment and that suburbs are bastions of racial segregation. Democrats in Virginia may override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.The measure could quickly transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be built on...

    An Iowa man will spend up to 16 years behind bars for stealing a pride flag from an Iowa church and setting it on fire — a sentence that even a local LGBTQ group says might be excessive, according to a new report. Adolfo Martinez, 30, of Ames, was sentenced Wednesday for stealing the pride banner hanging at Ames Church of Christ back in June — and then burning it with lighter fluid and a lighter outside the Dangerous Curves Gentleman’s Club, The Des Moines Register reported.

    Now that the Virginia State Legislature and the Governorship are under solid Democrat control, steps are underway to infringe on citizens' rights to bear arms. More than 80 local governments—cities and counties—have declared themselves "Second Amendment sanctuaries." Democrats are calling for punitive action against "these outlaws." Rep. Donald McEachin (D-Richmond) suggested "cutting off state aid to sanctuary jurisdictions" or "maybe calling out National Guard troops to suppress those rebelling against State authority. Gov. Ralph Northam took what he termed "a more nuanced approach. If these scofflaws won't comply with gun control regulations I'll sit down with legislative leaders and have...

    The gap between revenues and expenditures for the New York State Government is projected to exceed $6 billion for next year. The preferred option of raising taxes to cover the shortfall has had the unpleasant effect of driving many wealthier residents to leave the state. The disdained option of cutting expenditures has resulted in the soaring welfare expenditures that comprise two-thirds of the shortfall. Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie (D-Bronx) vows to “resist any cuts to the benefits of the voters who gave Democrats control of all branches of the government” and “to extract the wealth unfairly accumulated by the tax-dodging...
