    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is poised to implement a new regulation without legislative approval to join 10 other states in a climate change agreement based on restricting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.But lawmakers, policy analysts, and tea party activists in Virginia who oppose what they consider costly regulations of industry are raising questions about the economic and scientific arguments underpinning the proposed rule.They say the Virginia General Assembly should have a straight up-or-down vote on Northam’s plan, in part to ensure that any revenue the governor raises from “carbon trading” is collected and dispersed in a manner consistent...

    The site, founded by best-selling author/researcher Bert Sperling, claims that Amazon a company whose stock surpassed $1 trillion in valuation earlier this month -- will put its roots down in a relatively remote area of Northern Virginia known as Oatlands. If that name doesnt exactly ring a bell, dont feel badly. Oatlands is a leafy, unincorporated community just outside Leesburg, Va. -- and Leesburg itself only has about 52,000 residents. We can now confidently say that the new Amazon HQ2 will be located in Northern Virginia near the Maryland border, in a small community that hasnt been mentioned...

    Leading congressional Democrats are looking to stall the process to release documents related to the Russia investigation, which President Donald Trump ordered declassified on Monday. Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff and Sens. Chuck Schumer and Mark Warner, sent a letter Tuesday asking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to provide an immediate briefing to the Gang of Eight before declassifying and releasing the documents. The four Democrats expressed profound alarm at Trumps order to declassify the records. Trump ordered the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National...

As McKeown made his way inside, Army Staff Sgt. Ronald Hamilton was waiting for him with a military-style rifle. "All my vision went to was the barrel of...

    I receive a lot of strange information from a wide variety of sources. Some of it is intriguing. Some of it is flat-out weird. I try (and frequently fail) to temporarily set aside my own personal prejudices to objectively as possible consider the merits of both the intriguing and weird. Recently, an interesting French website has been asking questions about the crash of American Airlines Flight 77, which reportedly crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11. The conventional wisdom has been inculcated into us that there were four terrorist hijacked airplanes that tragic day. But there are refutations for each...

    RICHMOND A legislative review of Virginias Department of Elections has found that the agency had an environment of open support for one party over the other under leadership appointed by then-Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Democrat. Staff from the General Assemblys Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission presented their findings Monday in a 75-page report that pointed to the perception of political bias and a faulty IT system as two key issues state lawmakers may want to address. Jamie Bitz, a chief legislative analyst for JLARC, said interviews with local voter registrars and state elections staffers showed there was a...

    Four years ago a seemingly invincible US senator came within a percentage point of losing his seat in an unexpectedly close election. Mark Warner was pretty moderate as far as Democrats go, a good fit for a state, Virginia, that had drifted out of the Republican column in the last two presidential elections and just elected a full slate of Democratic statewide officials a year before. But midterms are when presidents and their parties get rebuked, and Warner, a telecom millionaire who had once been tipped as presidential contender, took his support for granted. The Republican, lobbyist Ed Gillespie, was...

    Police have responded to the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC after an anonymous threat to shoot up a meeting there supporting President Donald Trump.

'I am coming with a gun and i expect to get numerous bloodstained MAGA hats as trophies,' the account wrote, referencing the Trump campaign slogan 'Make American Great Again'. The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the threat, department spokesman Hugh Carew told DailyMail.com, adding that no further details were immediately...

    Prominent conservative evangelical leader Pat Robertson has asked his followers to join in on prayer to cast a "shield of protection" ahead of Hurricane Florence. In a video shared online by Right Wing Watch, the televangelist cited a passage from the bible in which Jesus commanded the wind and water on the Sea of Galilee to "be still." While delivering remarks in Virginia, which is home to his Christian Broadcasting Network and where thousands are bracing for Florence's arrival, Robertson asked if his followers could invoke the same words from the passage to accomplish a similar result "if we are...

    Virginia Democratic Sen. Mark Warner said he must vote no on Judge Brett Kavanaughs nomination, joining a list of Democrats who have said they will not support President Donald Trumps Supreme Court nominee. While Warner has shared his concerns over Kavanaugh regarding issues like overturning Roe v. Wade, the Virginia Democrat said he would still carefully examine Judge Kavanaughs record and judicial philosophy, according to a statement on his website posted after Trumps announcement of Kavanaughs nomination in July. Warner said Monday night on CNNs State of the Union with Jake Tapper that its not just issues like womens reproductive...

    (CNSNews.com) - "We didn't waste the August recess," Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, told Fox News's Mario Bartiromo on Sunday. "We interviewed a number of key witnesses, including Bruce Ohr. And now we are proceeding to get additional documents from the FBI and line up additional witnesses." Goodlatte, referring to the witnesses, said his committee is "digging them out one at a time. And we're making a lot of progress."

    Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is moving to set up a Judiciary Committee vote on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination, likely next week. Grassley's office on Monday sent out an agenda for a business meeting the committee will have on Thursday. Kavanaugh's nomination is included as one of roughly two dozen judicial nominations that could get a vote. The move means Kavanaugh's nomination could get a vote as soon as this week. But Democrats are expected to delay the vote until next week, meaning Kavanaugh's nomination will likely be taken up by the committee on Sept. 20. Under committee rules, any...
