Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, September 17.

  • Perseus1986

    You forgot the massive outpouring of spontaneous support for our president that occured yesterday at the Mother of All Rallies. So many people turned up that it was close to being as big as the Juggalo rally on the other side of the mall.

    • LOL, yeah, just chop off a few zeroes from the numbers the Trumpster buffoons were shooting for.

      • True Blue

        Best twitter comment: “Difference between “mother of all rallies” and when mothers *actually* rally.” Trump support maybe 150? Women’s March 470,000. It also reminds me of numbers from the Glenn Beck rally compared to Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity!

        There is great video of Trump people fussing with a black man who carried his “Black History Tours” sign, asking him to leave. He stayed! LOL

  • Right-wing extremist (e.g., continually celebrates Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet) Fredy Burgo, a member of the VA GOP Central Committee, has this to say about the community vote to rename J.E.B. Stuart H.S.

    **ORDER & PATRIOTISM**
    Cultural cleansing by the Left fails. The Marxist attempt to change the name of a Fairfax County school fell “short”. A referendum vote was made and the name of “J.E.B. Stuart High School” will simply change to “Stuart High School”. The funny part is that most people called the school “Stuart”, for short.😂
    BORDERS, LANGUAGE, AND CULTURE DO MATTER!

  • Mother of All Rallies for Drumpf – look at that crowd!

  • Actually, JEB Stuart got crushed compared to the rest of peoples’ choices…

    Tom Perriello Launches Door-to-Door Canvass for Larry Barnett

    Highlighting Key Competitive Delegate Races in the Push for November 7th Election

    Chesterfield County, VA – Today, Tom Perriello joined Larry Barnett and dozens of supporters and volunteers for Barnett’s door-to-door canvass. Tom Perriello and WinVirginia are highlighting competitive Delegate races across Virginia, endorsing Larry Barnett’s race against Republican incumbent, Roxann Robinson. The energy was very high and excitement rang through the crowd of volunteers as Barnett’s campaign picks up momentum.

    “We are feeling the momentum here in District 27 and because of all of you.” Larry Barnett said to the crowd of volunteers, ready to go knock doors. “ I want to thank all of you for coming out and for supporting my campaign. This is truly a grassroots effort and when I see the amount of people that we will have out on the doors today, I am very hopeful about November 7th!”

    “I am so excited to be out with you today,” Tom Perriello said to Barnett supporters. “Larry’s an amazing advocate for everything from clean energy, to the importance of affordable health care; making sure that covers mental health as well as addiction services and other things that are needed. He also has a great chance to win this race.”

    Perriello continued to speak about WinVirginia’s efforts to highlight key House of Delegate candidates across the Commonwealth saying, “We need Democrats running even in parts of the state that haven’t necessarily seen real challenges, but we also knew that some [candidates] were going to over-perform and emerge as rock-stars and that’s what you have here with Larry.”

    With all eyes on Virginia this year, the November 7th election is going to represent the largest election since 2016. Across the country, local and state Democratic challengers have been winning seats in special elections in heavily Republican districts, exemplified by recent elections in New Hampshire and Oklahoma. The energy and unprecedented grassroots activism here in the 27th District and across the Commonwealth could signify a wave in November, following a national trend.

    Republican Incumbent Tim Hugo a “No Show” at League of Women Voters Candidate Forum
    #WhereIsTim? Probably hiding from his egregious voting record

    Fairfax County, Va. – Today, 14-year Republican incumbent Del. Tim Hugo deftly avoided voters by being a “no show” at the League of Women Voters VA Delegates forum.

    “Where in the world is Tim Hugo?” asks Tanner Campaign Manager, Alex Vuskovic. “I’m not sure, but I know why he refuses to show. Hugo is afraid and unwilling to defend his record. Whether it’s his countless attempts to defund Planned Parenthood, deny 400,000 Virginian’s access to healthcare, or taking over $130k from the predatory lending industry, Tim Hugo has consistently put himself over serving the people of the 40th district.”

    Tim Hugo’s opponent, Air Force Veteran and Small Business Owner Donte Tanner, has been all over the district, taking his campaign directly to the voters. He’s running to put service before self, and was frankly a little disappointed he wasn’t able to talk about the issues that matter most to the 40th with his opponent today.

    The 40th District spans from Haymarket in Prince William County and goes as far east to Clifton in Fairfax County. Its residents consist of families, small business owners, and commuters who all sent a message to Washington last year when they voted for Hillary Clinton in the Presidential Election.
