National and Virginia News Headlines: Sunday Morning


Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, July 26. With regard to the video, I continue to have mixed feelings about progressives going on right-wing shows: a) it IS a chance to debunk their lies; b) in the case of Mark Levine, he does a great job; but c) it also legitimizes the right-wing shows, as if there really are two equivalent sides in the debate; and d) the hosts of these shows frame the entire debate in a wildly biased way (e.g., in this case, the nonsense about a “number of accusations and scandals going on” regarding Hillary Clinton; in fact, these are all right-wing-echo-chamber-imagined “scandals” that exist only in their fevered imaginations.)

  • Can you be any more ignorant, mindlessly clueless, anti-culture, etc. than Fox “News?”  For the record, Synetic Theater is amazing, super talented, innovate, etc., and needless to say infinitely more talented than the cackling imbeciles on Fox. P.S. Might as well take this as an opportunity to encourage everyone to go see a show at Synetic!

    Here it is:

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called on Sunday for a dramatic national shift to energy sources such as solar and wind, setting a goal of generating enough clean renewable energy to power every U.S. home within a decade after she takes office.

    Clinton, the front-runner for her party’s 2016 presidential nomination, also pledged to have more than half a billion solar panels installed nationwide within four years of taking office.

    “I want more wind, more solar, more advanced biofuels, more energy efficiency,” Clinton said at a rally on Sunday in Ames, Iowa. “And I’ve got to tell you, people who argue against this are just not paying attention.”

    The two goals, announced in a video on Sunday night, were the first elements of what Clinton said would be a comprehensive climate-change agenda to be released over the next few months.
