Wednesday News: Dems Appear to Avoid CA Debacle; “With no Eagles around, Trump acts a turkey”…and Forgets Words to “God Bless America”; Koch Brothers for Freaky Freitas


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Wednesday, June 6.

  • Theresa Cravens

    here is something for your news, Lowell — i was driving home last night in McLean on dolley madison blvd and saw Allison Friedman and her staff pulling up yard signs for other candidates and replacing them with her own!!!!! it made me sad, i wonder when we lost civility in politics

  • Andy Schmookler

    Today is the 74th anniversary of D-Day, the allied invasion on the beaches of France to begin to drive back the Nazi power that had taken control of almost all of Europe.

    We today need to do something pretty much analogous, by pushing today’s Republican Party back, forcing it to relinquish its control over the government of the United States.

    In the name of much the same set of values.

  • This says a great deal about VA House Speaker Kirk Cox (R), nothing good…


  • Lovely photo as well – Speaker Kirk Cox, 5th CD GOP nominee Denver Riggleman, State Sen. Bryce Reeves (R), VP Pence


  • Interesting issues difference in VA-01 – John Suddarth says “You asked about the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipeline. It’s very easy to be against those pipelines – but I’m not. If they’re properly approved and properly made, they’re the safest way to transport fuel. Now many environmentalists think if you abruptly cut off the supply of fossil fuels, you’ll save the environment. I believe in a smooth transition, persistent progress on renewables, and let those fade away to minimize the disruption in our economy. We can do this right and we can do it in a way that benefits everyone.”
