    All four of the Democratic candidates for president have expressed support for sanctuary cities, a controversial policy that is being blamed for the recent release of a five times-deported illegal alien who allegedly murdered a woman in broad daylight in San Francisco. As a senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, twice made public statements backing sanctuary cities. In 2008, she and two other Democratic candidates, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Virginia U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, voted against an amendment that would block federal funds from going to sanctuary cities. And last year, as governor of...

Mr. Webb, a Vietnam veteran and former Navy secretary under President Ronald Reagan, has policy positions do not fall neatly along party lines. Here is where he stands on the issues.

    Bill Cosby will not be charged in connection with actress Lili Bernard’s allegations that the comedian sexually assaulted her in Atlantic City in the early 1990s. “The office of the Atlantic County Prosecutor has terminated its investigation, closed its file and so notified Ms. Bernard’s lawyer,” Edwin J. Jacobs, Jr., Cosby’s New Jersey attorney at Jacobs & Barbone, said via a release. When Bernard first spoke with police this past May, her case appeared to be a lynchpin in the ongoing Cosby scandal due to New Jersey’s lack of a statute of limitations on rape. However, that change in law...

    LEXINGTON — A former pastor charged with molesting a teenage boy from his church is asking that his upcoming trial be moved from Rockbridge County. Larry McKinley Clark’s attorney argued Tuesday that extensive publicity about the case would make it all but impossible to seat an impartial jury. Complicating the problem for Clark, attorney Dirk Padgett said, that news media coverage includes that of an earlier trial in which Clark was convicted of sexually abusing a second young parishioner. “I do think it raises it to a different level if [potential jurors] are aware of a conviction,” Padgett argued during...

    A coalition of civil rights and other activists demanded Thursday that U.S. Rep.

Fix the Voting Rights Act!” said Priscilla Ouchida of the Japanese American Citizens League, one of more than two dozen groups represented. Organizers hope the rally — which included state activists and national figures — will ramp up public pressure on the Roanoke County Republican, who chairs the committee where efforts to update the voter...

    With the revulsion against Confederate symbols that has resulted from shooter Dylann Roof's internet picture with the Confederate battle flag, Robert E. Lee has been put in the gunsights of social radicals. Lee was one of the two great generals of the Civil War and due in part to his good fortune in having an excellent biographer in Douglas Southall Freeman, is generally regarded as the greatest, although it should be noted that Grant won the war. Lee came from one of the oldest families in Virginia and arguably its most distinguished. His father, Light Horse Harry Lee, was a...

    To keep conservative rebels in check, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and his allies have been doling out punishments at an aggressive clip in the 114th Congress. From kicking unruly members off the Rules Committee and GOP whip team to stripping a lawmaker of his subcommittee gavel, leadership has been growing more comfortable with taking retaliatory measures to try to enforce party discipline. But several Tea Party targets haven’t gone quietly. They’ve been fighting back with help from Ohio Rep.

    The Democratic Party of Virginia is currently giving away free tickets to an event featuring Hillary Clinton later tonight. Clinton is headlining the party's annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner on Friday evening. Though the event is raising money for the Virginia Democrats rather than her presidential bid, it is considered an important campaign appearance for Clinton. The dinner is Clinton's first campaign stop in Virginia, a crucial swing state. It's also one of her first stops outside of the early primary states. Tickets for the event are being sold for $30 and $125. However, on Friday afternoon, some Virginia Democrats received an...

    Monument Avenue, in Richmond, Virginia, is a premier example of the Grand American Avenue city planning style. The first monument, a statue of Robert E. Lee, was erected in 1890. Between 1900 and 1925, Monument Avenue exploded with architecturally significant houses, churches and apartment buildings. A tree-lined grassy mall divides the east- and westbound sides of the street and is punctuated by statues memorializing Virginian Confederate participants of the Civil War Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart, Jefferson Davis, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, and Matthew Fontaine Maury, as well as Arthur Ashe, a Richmond native and international tennis star.

This week, the Jefferson Memorial was drawn into the national debate about race following the shooting deaths of nine people in a predominantly black church in South Carolina last week. It joins other public statues depicting Southern or Confederate figures, including Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee, that some are arguing represent the country's racist past and should be removed.

There are also discussions in Washington, D.C. about removing Confederate-related statues from the U.S. Capitol — including a statue of Jefferson Davis, the former president of the Confederacy. “It’s something to think about,” Sen. Harry Reid told reporters. Republicans, meanwhile, are leading the charge in South Carolina and Mississippi to remove the Confederate flag — called a symbol of hate and racism.

The Confederate Battle Flag has wrongly been used for racist and other purposes in recent decades. It should not be used in any way as a political symbol that divides us,” Webb wrote in a Facebook post. Americans...

    Virginia will begin the process to remove the Confederate flag from state-issued license plates, Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Tuesday, calling the emblem divisive and hurtful. McAuliffe said that a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling allows states to decide which emblems to allow or not allow on license plates. He said that the decision supersedes previous federal court rulings that required Virginia to issue Sons of the Confederate Veterans plates that include the iconic image of the red flag with a blue X. His announcement comes a day after South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate...

    The US Department of State, DHS, and 14 Democrat Senators, including Senator Kaine (see his press release), are begging for 65,000 Syrian refugees to be settled in our communities and without your consent. Virginia only has 17 Syrian refugees at last count, so is Virginia under review for the next huge wave? As thousands of new immigrants are slated to arrive over the next few years, the chances of rubbing shoulders with Islamic terrorists increase dramatically. According to Refugee Resettlement Watch, the percentage of Muslim refugees in America was close to zero in the 1990’s. By the year 2000 it was 44%. Post...

    The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal sex discrimination lawsuit on behalf of a Virginia high school student who has been prohibited from using the boys bathrooms and locker rooms on school premises. The student plaintiff, 16-year-old Gavin Grimm, attends Gloucester High School in quiet, coastal Virginia, reports the Daily Press of Newport News. The reason school officials have prevented Grimm from using facilities reserved for boys on campus is because Grimm was born a girl and by all accounts remains a girl. Nevertheless, Grimm, her family and the ACLU want a court order forcing the local school...

I suspect that the majority of people following this primary prefer Vince Haley – but do they understand how fundamentally important it is to get out and vote tomorrow?If Vince Haley loses, the Republican Establishment will celebrate, gloat, and call the primary result a mandate for their Wall Street and K Street agendas.

Moreover, in our review of 127 of the arguably representative speakers they highlight, we note that one-third—41—have discernible political views.

    Self-driving cars are taking to the streets in California this summer, but the Golden State isn't the only one opening its roads to autonomous cars.Virginia just announced that 70 miles of highway in the Commonwealth would be open to self-driving cars, like the cars in Google's fleet. Any autonomous vehicle wanting to travel those routes, called the Virginia Automated Corridors, will be overseen by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, which helped the state government plan the project.As the Richmond Times-Dispatchreports the plan is for companies to test how their cars react in real-world situations on highways packed with human drivers....

    CHRISTIANSBURG — After an eight-hour sentencing hearing Monday, Jessica Michelle Ewing, a former Virginia Tech student and Corps of Cadets member was sentenced to 45 years in prison for the 2014 killing of fellow student Samanata Shrestha. Judge Robert Turk sentenced to Ewing to 80 years for first-degree murder and five years for transporting and concealing a body. After Ewing serves 45 years, the rest will be suspended, Turk ruled. She will be on probation for 20 years after her release. Ewing was facing a minimum of 20 years and up to life in prison on the first-degree murder charge....

    FREDERICKSBURG, Virginia — Susan Stimpson is hoping the anti-incumbent mood that helped a little-known economics professor unseat the second most powerful member of the U.S. House last year is still strong among Virginia's Republican voters. The tea party favorite Stimpson is trying to upset long-time Virginia House Speaker William J. Howell in the June 9 GOP primary, a victory that would be of similar magnitude on a state level to Dave Brat's stunning defeat of then-U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor last year. Stimpson said Republicans in Howell's Fredericksburg-area state House district, which is near Cantor's old Richmond-area congressional district,...

    Mika Brzezinski just can't contain her liberal bias. On today's Morning Joe, Mika admitted that the the MSM has a double standard when it comes to reporting controversial things that Democrats and Republicans have done or said. Yet she promptly turned around and applied that same double standard to Bernie Sanders and Rick Santorum. Discussing Bernie Sanders having written in 1972 that women fantasize about being raped, Mika agreed that if Rick Santorum had written the same thing, the press would go crazy. However, Mika claimed that wouldn't be because Santorum's a Republican, but rather would be due to "his...
