    DILLWYN, Va. (AP) — A German diplomat’s son convicted of murder is petitioning Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe for an “absolute pardon” and parole based largely on blood analysis. Jens Soering is serving two life terms for the 1985 slayings of his ex-girlfriend’s parents. Soering’s petition this week says a blood analysis concludes that Soering, who has Type O blood, was not the source of at least some of the Type O blood found at the scene, The Washington Post (http://wapo.st/2bMPfMB) reported. Investigators said his claim was not new. “This is no longer about believing me,” Soering, 50, told the newspaper...

    The professional Soros migration/refugee agitators are rallying the street radicals to come to Washington, D.C., this Sunday, August 28. The aim of #DCRally4Refugees is to whip up the appearance of popular support for the UN’s September 19 Refugee Summit and President Obama’ plan to “surge” thousands more Syrian “refugees” into American communities. The #DCRally4Refugees is being organized by dozens of radical-Left groups funded by billionaire hedge fund mogul George Soros (shown) and his Open Society Foundations. As we reported last week, hacked documents from the Open Society Foundations (OSF) database have confirmed what was long known to readers of The...

    As the Clinton/Kaine ticket gets under way, much is known of Hillary Clinton on the national scene: Her history as former First Lady, former senator, and former secretary of state — and the scandals which accompanied each of those positions — has been well reported and is well known, if not well accepted. Tim Kaine (shown), on the other hand, is another matter. His political career has been confined to Virginia and so — with rare exception — has his media coverage. Who is Tim Kaine? Michael Timothy Kaine’s political career began in the 1980s at Harvard when he met,...

The poll also showed improved favorability ratings for Clinton in Virginia. Thirty-nine percent said they saw the Democratic nominee favorably, while 45 percent saw her unfavorably.

    The FBI has launched a terror probe into a weekend stabbing in Virginia — which may have been an ISIS-inspired beheading attempt, according to a report. Wasil Farooqui of Roanoke County allegedly stabbed a man and a woman with a knife Saturday evening as they were entering an apartment building in Roanoke, police said. Authorities believe Farooqui, 20, may have been trying to decapitate the male victim, whom he likely targeted at random at The Pines Apartments, sources told ABC News. He shouted “Allahu akbar” — Arabic for “God is great” — during the assault, but was fought off by...

    WBTV.com & AP ^ | August 22, 2016 | By ALANNA DURKIN RICHER Associated Press
    A defiant Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced Monday that he again restored the voting rights of about 13,000 felons who served their time after his previous attempt was thwarted by Republican lawmakers and the state Supreme Court. Virginia's highest court ruled in July that governors cannot restore rights en masse, but must consider each offender on a case-by-case basis. That ruling invalidated a sweeping executive order issued by McAuliffe in April that had given back the voting rights of more than 200,000 felons who completed their sentences. McAuliffe blasted the court Monday for ignoring the "the clear text of the...

    Thee political world is all atwitter following Donald Trump’s statement last Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina that, “believe it or not,” he regrets having said “the wrong thing” in the past, “particularly where it may have caused personal pain,” a list which might include Heidi Cruz, Megyn Kelly, and Ghazala Khan. I was less astonished than most, however, because I noticed a substantial and important change in Mr. Trump’s campaigning more than week earlier. Although I mentioned it during my radio show, it seemed to go mostly unnoticed in the broader media, perhaps because of justifiable initial skepticism. In Abingdon,...

"The GOP is the party of Abraham Lincoln," Trump said. "I want our party to be the home of the African-American voter once again."

    Jerry Falwell Jr. is president of Liberty University. In the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, American voters were forced to choose between a liberal Democrat and weak establishment Republicans. Democrats won both times. In the 2010 and 2014 midterms, tired of the leftist agenda, voters sent an unmistakable message to Washington: Republicans took control of the Senate and filled more seats in the House than at any time since 1929. Still, nothing changed. In 2016, we have a clear choice. This moment is historic because Donald Trump is not another establishment Republican.

On Twitter, Schultz used the hashtag "#OptOut" and criticized the survey as containing "assumptively crafted, probative questions." If you look at the actual survey, you will quickly see that she is right. Questions such as "how often do you use cocaine" and "how did you get the alcohol you drink" clearly are...

    Over the last 30 years or so, one aspect of presidential elections has been pretty consistent. The GOP nominee usually doesn’t have to break a sweat to carry the southern states. From 1980 through 2004, with two notable exceptions – Jimmy Carter’s home state of Georgia in 1980 and a few states during southern-boy Bill Clinton’s two runs – Republicans enjoyed complete dominance in the swath of states from Virginia to Texas That may be changing. This year’s battle between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is unusual to say the least. Not in my lifetime have two candidates with unfavorables...

Kaine said in a speech at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina Tuesday: It took 144 years before women even got the right to vote in this country. What were we thinking when we said equality mattered, but no. One hundred and forty-four years. It took us that long to say in 1920, to say women get a right to vote. And now we’re...

When Hillary Clinton picked Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her VP running mate, the media largely portrayed him as a middle-of-the-road candidate who would give the Democrat ticket a centrist orientation. The Washington Post cited Kaine's “relatively moderate persona.” USA Today said he “is considered a safe pick — a swing-state moderate who appeals to independent voters.” And the New York Times referenced Kaine's “credentials as a moderate.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Kaine strongly favors government-enforced affirmative-action policies designed to favor nonwhites and women in...

    In 2009, Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist, traveled to Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to visit Muslim holy sites located in the Kingdom. Once there, he disappeared only to reappear later in some peculiar online rants, claiming to be residing in Virginia and alternatively, in Arizona, and expressing a desire to return to Iran. Amiri, who conducted nuclear research at the military affiliated Malek Ashtar University of Technology and worked for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, was said to possess a treasure trove of classified information on Iran’s illicit nuclear program. On his YouTube channel, he alleged that he was kidnapped by...

    When this particular bit of nonsense first showed up in the press (and was hammered on for days on end) Allahpundit did an admirable job of seeing through the smokescreen before any follow-up work was done. You can find all the originally available details at the link, but I’m sure everyone with a television or a smartphone caught up on them. The short version was that a woman with a baby was watching a Trump rally at a high school. The baby started crying and after a few jokes, Trump had her thrown out of the event. If the story...

    The truth of the matter, however, remained unresolved -- until now. The enterprising fact-checkers at the Washington Post tracked down two sources -- an eyewitness to the proceedings and the mother of said baby -- and determined that Trump was, in fact, telling the truth Friday about how he treated the bawling infant. This is how Daniel Dale, a reporter from the Toronto Star and firsthand witness to the events, described what happened, according to the Post: The baby was one row in front of me, three or four rows from the stage, at Trump's event at a high school...

    Tight races in two Southwestern states and wide margin in Virginia show how 2016 could continue to be an election of surprises. Hillary Clinton holds a narrow two-point edge over Donald Trump in Nevada, earning 43% against Trump’s 41% among likely voters in a swing state George W. Bush and Barack Obama both won twice. In Arizona, which has only voted Democratic once since 1948, it’s Donald Trump with the slim lead, topping Clinton 44% to 42%. But Clinton could be headed for a relative blow-out in Virginia, where she leads Trump 49% to 37%. In 2008 Obama turned Virginia...

    Richard "Scott" Silverthorne, mayor of the city of Fairfax, Virginia, and a supporter of Hillary Clinton, has been arrested after allegedly giving methamphetamine to an undercover detective in exchange for a homosexual encounter, according to Fairfax County police. The mayor allegedly promised to bring more men, turning the sexual event into an orgy. The 50-year-old Silverthorne was arrested Thursday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Tyson's Corner, NBC Washington reported. "I ask that you allow the process to proceed before rushing to judgment (as tough as that may be)," the mayor wrote on his Facebook page Friday.

    EXCERPT Dale’s account is confirmed by the mother herself — Virginia resident Devan Ebert. (She spoke on the condition that we not report her town.) “The media did in fact blow this entire situation out of proportion,” she wrote in an email. “I’m not looking to make it into anything bigger. All I’m hoping is that Trump personally is aware that I am in agreement with him and stand by the fact that I was never kicked out of the rally.” She said that she decided to leave the auditorium on her own because “it’s the considerate thing to do...

    Tim Kaine says being Hillary Clinton's running mate feels like being kidnapped. Kaine spoke at a coordinated campaign field office for Clinton and local Democrats in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Friday, according to Politico. Asked by Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) what it was like to be Clinton's running mate, he responded: "It feels like I got kidnapped." Kaine, a Virginia senator, was announced as Clinton's running mate July 22. He held his first joint campaign event with her the next day, and spoke at the Democratic National Convention the following week — speaking just after Vice President Joe Biden and...

    Electronic voting machines—particularly a design called Direct Recording Electronic, or DRE’s—took off in 2002, in the wake of Bush v. Gore. For the ensuing 15 years, Appel and his colleagues have deployed every manner of stunt to convince the public that the system is pervasively unsecure and vulnerable.

    Washington Post ^ | 8/5/16 | Rachel Weiner
    A federal appeals court has signaled that it agrees that former Virginia first lady Maureen McDonnell’s corruption convictions should be tossed out because of the U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturned her husband’s convictions. Attorneys on both sides said that a ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit suspends the public corruption case, and that further legal action is necessary to vacate the convictions as prosecutors decide whether to seek a new trial. But they said the order indicates that the court agrees with a defense analysis — unchallenged by prosecutors — that the first...
