    During a town hall with members of the military, President Obama was asked what he thought of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest against the national anthem prior to football games. Obama appeared to equate the two positions — pointing out that he wanted Kaepernick to understand why people might be angry at his protest, while also urging military families to listen to the NFL players who joined Kaepernick by drawing attention to the Black Lives Matter movement.

    President Obama Wednesday night said U.S. service members fight so that people like the 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick can express their views and take a knee during the national anthem to make a point. . . A widow of a veteran who died of cancer after being misdiagnosed at a Veteran Affairs hospital wanted to know why that doctor was still working at the hospital and there wasn't more accountability for some employees. While Obama said that a lot of people have been fired and the VA has worked hard to improve wait times, he acknowledged that there is no...

    Perhaps John Warner’s biggest claim to fame is a distinction he shares with a good-sized chunk of older American men: having once been married to Elizabeth Taylor. But the former Republican senator from Virginia found another way to get himself some attention today: by endorsing Hillary for president. Interviewed by Andrea Mitchell on her MSNBC show this afternoon, Warner managed to make his endorsement mainly about himself. In the course of their brief conversation, Warner let it be known: that he had been on the lawn for the famous handshake between Rabin and Araft; that he had served in both...

    For the first time this year, a major polling operation now says that Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton in the only race that matters – the Electoral College race. The poll was conducted between Sept. 12 and 25th. It tracks 250 likely voters in each state every week. Results are tabulated every two weeks. Although the UPI’s national poll shows Clinton with a slight lead of 2/3rds of one percent, Trump tromps the ailing former Secretary of State by an Electoral College margin of 292 to 246 with 270 needed for victory. What’s changed? Trump is now leading in...

Kaine was responding to a question about Clinton's reluctance to put out policies so far this cycle related to government reform and transparency. "Why nothing from that, from Secretary Clinton?" Todd asked. "Trust is her biggest problem. And yet, there's no pledge about what's she's going to do to conduct a transparent White House." The...

Fifty-five percent of battleground voters want to see “big changes” in the nation’s politics and economy in the next few years. Forty-three percent want “some changes” and only 2 percent think things are fine and not in need of much change. Trump leads by a wide margin on being trusted to change Washington: Forty-seven...

    With the presidential election less than eight weeks away, the race is too close to call in Virginia, according to a poll released Thursday. Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton held a 3-percentage-point lead over Republican Donald Trump among likely voters, but the spread is within the margin of error, according to a telephone survey commissioned by the University of Mary Washington’s Center for Leadership and Media Studies. Clinton’s lead was wider – 5 percentage points – when the pollsters included the results of all registered voters surveyed, not just those who indicate they’re likely to vote Nov. 8.

    The city of Alexandria, Va., is stonewalling an investigation into voter rolls in the city that could have illegally registered voters. The Public Interest Legal Foundation, an Indiana-based law firm that litigates to protect election integrity, filed a lawsuit in April against the city of Alexandria on behalf of the Virginia Voters Alliance, a group dedicated to improving election laws. The groups contended that voter rolls in Alexandria have for years contained more registrants than people of voting age in the city. In January, PILF sent a statutory notice letter to Anna J. Leider, the general registrar of Alexandria, warning...

  • ‘Devout’ Roman Catholic Tim Kaine Butchers the Bible and Embraces Gay Radicalism

    Speaking at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual Washington, DC dinner, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Tim Kaine butchered the Bible and made one of the most twisted arguments for same-sex “marriage” that you’ll ever hear. Yet the very article laying out his arguments described him as a “devout” Roman Catholic. How can this be?Putting aside the obvious question of how Kaine could serve on a presidential ticket with the radically pro-abortion candidate Hillary Clinton – indeed, he has already been challenged for “saying he is both a ‘traditional Catholic’ and a strong supporter of abortion” – Kaine raised further eyebrows when suggesting...
  • Katie Couric facing $12M defamation lawsuit over #GunGate

    I’d thought we might have heard the last of the Katie Couric infomercial posing as an examination of gun rights issues. After all, there was public outrage aplenty and even Couric herself finally admitted that the editing of the piece “might have been misleading.” (Really? You think so?) But the group which was the victim of the insulting and misleading editing, the Virginia Citizens Defense League, is bringing the GunGate story back into the news this week. Our colleagues at Bearing Arms have obtained documents confirming that the group is seeking to take Couric to court over the slanderous piece...
