  • Private police carry guns and make arrests, and their ranks are swelling

    03/01/2015 12:46:57 PM PST · by Libloather · 28 replies
    Michael Youlen stopped a driver in a Manassas apartment complex on a recent night and wrote the man a ticket for driving on a suspended license. With a badge on his chest and a gun on his hip, Youlen gave the driver a stern warning to stay off the road. The stop was routine police work, except for one fact: Youlen is not a Manassas officer. The citation came courtesy of the private force he created that, until recently, he called the “Manassas Junction Police Department.” He is its chief and sole officer. He is a force of one. And...

    White privilege didn't protect John Geer. That's not to say he didn't have it. As a middle-class kitchen designer living in the pleasant Washington suburb of Fairfax, Va., he had nothing whatsoever in common with the impoverished black men killed by police in Missouri and Brooklyn last year. But Geer, pierced 18 months ago by a police bullet as he stood inside the screen door of his own home, his hands raised, begging not to be shot, simply disappeared into the emotional mixing bowl of American news and political priorities. That should not have happened. The killing of John Geer...

This ammo served as the standard issue, 5.56 x 45mm round used by the U.S. military and most NATO countries around the world. It is commonly referred to as “Green Tip” because the military puts a bit of green paint on the tip of the bullet to help...

    TORONTO - The Shopsy’s Deli chain has assigned a new name to a featured sandwich which was called the “Bill Cosby” for years. The corned beef sandwich had been named after the embattled comedian for several years before the current owners bought the restaurants, said Gavin Quinn, president of the Irish Embassy Group. The company bought Shopsy’s around eight years ago with the sandwich already on the menu. “I don’t even think people really associate it with the celebrity,” Quinn said. “They know it more as a food item.” A number of women have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them....

That report was based on 170 pages of research I had commissioned into how conservative PACs are spending their money and the numbers of the 10 groups on the bottom were so bad that I was genuinely shocked, which doesn’t happen very often. Just in case you’re wondering, those bottom 10 PACs you’re looking at spent $54,318,498, but only $3,621,896 of that money went to candidates via direct contributions or independent expenditures on their...

    Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner has introduced legislation which would have the effect of placing all of Virginia’s election laws under Justice Department oversight, and Virginia isn’t the only state that would fall into federal election receivership. Sensenbrenner’s bill, H.R. 885, is co-sponsored by Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus. It revives federal control through the Voting Rights Act over every state election law change. In 2013, the Supreme Court’s Shelby County vs. Holder decision struck down this power as an outdated and unconstitutional relic from a half-century ago. Texas would also fall under immediate federal...

    RICHMOND — A state report linking Virginia cigarette smuggling to terrorist organizations has prompted a Republican state senator to push a bill that would require retailers and wholesalers to obtain a state license to sell cigarettes. The bill, from Sen. Bryce E. Reeves (R-Spottsylvania), has cleared the Senate, but odds are against it in the GOP-dominated House because of conservative objections to increased government regulations and taxes. Even in the more moderate Senate, eight conservative Republicans voted against it. They are a group that Reeves, a fiscal and social conservative, often votes with. “I think they are concerned about regulatory...

"The options facing the president are complicated, have far-reaching ramifications, and may require significant resources." "That's why, if he chooses to act, the president must explain his decision publicly, clearly, and resolutely," he added. "The president is commander-in-chief. With that power comes obligations,"...

    WASHINGTON—Highway funding, tax reform and tire registration were the big issues tire dealers, repair shop owners and association officials discussed with Capitol Hill staffers during the Tire Industry Association’s Federal Lobby Day on Feb. 5. Approximately 55 representatives of the tire retailing and auto repair industries participated in the event, which began with speeches from current and former members of Congress and progressed to one-on-one meetings with key staff persons in the offices of several top Washington lawmakers. With the Highway Trust Fund set to run out of money in May, passage of a multi-year transportation funding bill was the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite in Virginia among potential presidential candidates, according to a Christopher Newport University poll released on Thursday. Clinton beats a lineup of potential Republican candidates in hypothetical head-to-head contests, with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush losing by the closest margin, 48 percent to 43 percent. The poll held mixed results for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He was the only other Republican contender in the poll to hold Clinton below a majority (49 percent to 42 percent), but his favorable rating among Virginia voters fell from 46 percent a year ago...

    State legislators around the country have introduced more than 200 bills aiming to nullify regulations and laws coming out of Washington, D.C., as they look to rein in the federal government. The legislative onslaught, which includes bills targeting federal restrictions on firearms, experimental treatments and hemp, reflects growing discord between the states and Washington, state officials say. “You have a choice,” said Kentucky state Rep. Diane St. Onge (R). “To sit back and not do anything or say anything and let overregulation continue — or you have the alternative choice to speak up about it and say, ‘We know what...

  • The emerging Iran nuclear deal raises major concerns

    Washington Post ^ | 2-8-15 | Editorial Board
    AS THE Obama administration pushes to complete a nuclear accord with Iran, numerous members of Congress, former secretaries of state and officials of allied governments are expressing concern about the contours of the emerging deal. Though we have long supported negotiations with Iran as well as the interim agreement the United States and its allies struck with Tehran, we share several of those concerns and believe they deserve more debate now — before negotiators present the world with a fait accompli. The problems raised by authorities ranging from Henry Kissinger, the country’s most senior former secretary of state, to Sen....

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana speaking at the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland. Louisiana Governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Bobby Jindal is continuing to voice his growing outrage over the Common Core state education standards, which the federal government played an influential role in encouraging most states to adopt. Speaking at a Thursday luncheon at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. hosted by the American Principles Project, a conservative organization rallying opposition to Common Core, Jindal argued that the Common Core standards stand against American values and causes local communities to lose...

  • Article V Convention: Doing it Right [Amending the US Constitution]

    Fairfax Free Citizen ^ | February 5, 2015 | Jonathon Moseley
    This week, Virginia’s General Assembly considered applying under Article V of the U.S. Constitution for a convention to propose amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The final “no” vote from Virginia may seriously take the winds out of the sails of the effort nationwide. Virginia is home turf for both Mark Levin and Michael Farris, key proponents of a “Convention of the States” campaign. However, some have been introducing an Article V Convention year after year in Richmond, so it may very well return next year. The decision was a highly controversial, high-stakes contest of two completely alternate understandings of what...
