ARLINGTON, Va. — On Wednesday night, Arlington National Cemetery held a virtual public scope meeting to discuss the proposed removal of the Confederate Memorial that has stood in Section 16 of the burial site for more than 100 years. It’s the latest step before removal, which the cemetery said is required by Congressional action, after the governing body approved the founding of the Naming Commission. (Snip) The 30-foot bronze statue stands atop a three-foot granite pedestal. The female figure at the top represents the Confederacy. It is a “nostalgic, mythologized version of the Confederacy, including highly sanitized depictions of slavery,


Tearing down statues again. Why isn't the Democrat party forced to disband and pay for their support of slavery, Jim Crow laws, etc...?

Its ironic that the nation wants to remove a confederate memorial from the land the Union stoled from a confederate woman, Mrs. Robert E. Lee. It was her land that Lincoln stoled. Please remove all graves as they are committed on Confederate soil!

Leave the Confederate Memorial alone! In removing it, Arlington will confirm the brokenness of the United States. Let the dead bury the dead. Let the living leave them ALONE! The current one is not the ONLY generation. The Creator could turn it all off at any time of His choosing.

This is beautiful memorial in the back of Arlington near Fort Myer.It is as much a monument to peace as it is to the Confederacy. It is surrounded by the graves of Confederate veterans and their headstones differ from the rounded US headstones in that they come to a point- “so some damn Yankee won’t sit on them “. Pray for a Republican victory in 2024 to stop this nonsense.

It the guise of being politically correct, we are cancelling our history as if it never happened, that slavery did not occur, and any reference to it is conducive to aiding and abetting more slavery? Ludicrous. All wars are painful. If they weren't, we would not try to avoid them. Might as well shut down Auschwitz so we don't ever remember the slave camps and the final solution.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom confirmed on Sunday that he is prepared to appoint an "interim" replacement for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., if she leaves office early. Newsom made the statement during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday. The ailing Feinstein has confirmed that she will not run for re-election in 2024, but speculation about her health has raised questions about whether she will remain in office until her current term ends.

Oil prices are surging again, but the Biden administration's biggest weapon for bringing them down has much less ammunition. Last year, the federal government drained 180 million barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve as oil prices soared in the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the turmoil in energy markets that followed. Flooding the market with all that supply helped bring oil prices down — and helped cool inflation, which had shot up as well. Earlier this year, the administration took some steps to start refilling the SPR. But while it has ticked up slightly, the level remains near

Democrats are fretting about President Biden’s low approval ratings, exacerbated by widespread concerns about his age. Those factors seem to be getting worse rather than better. A CNN/SSRS poll released this week showed just 39 percent of adults approving of Biden’s job performance, his lowest number in more than a year. Almost three-quarters of the population, according to the poll, believes Biden lacks the stamina and sharpness to serve effectively as president. (Snip) Even so, plenty of Democrats are at least daydreaming of alternatives, just in case Biden would decide to step aside or circumstances would change unexpectedly. Here are

Vice President Kamala Harris said during an interview Wednesday that she was ready to fulfill her constitutional duty to assume the presidency should President Biden be unable to govern as questions swirl around his health and age. Biden, who is 80 and is turning 81 in November, continues to be the oldest serving president in U.S. history. Should Democrats win again in 2024, he will be 82 before he is sworn into a potential second term and would be 86 at the end of it. Harris described the idea of possibly stepping into the role of president as "hypothetical" but

A four-day workweek at full-time pay, a 46% wage increase and a share of company profits are among the demands of the union representing approximately 150,000 workers at the Big 3 U.S. automakers -- General Motors, Ford and Stellantis. The United Auto Workers, or UAW, has vowed to launch a strike on Sept. 14 if the union and the automakers fail to reach an agreement by then. Even UAW President Shawn Fain last month described the workers' set of demands as "audacious."

Several users fact-checked Biden’s claims, pointing out that the fire first respondents put out at his residence didn’t extend out of the kitchen, a far cry from the damage many people in Hawaii have suffered due to historic wildfires that have

Ukrainian authorities ordered a mandatory evacuation of several villages and three dozen other populated areas as Russian troops advanced on the Kharkiv province. The evacuation directive applies to 37 settlements that Russian forces captured early in the 18-month-old war but were liberated by a Ukrainian counteroffensive in September. Citing a Russian attempt to push back into the area, the military administration in the Kupiansk district told roughly 12,000 residents to seek safety elsewhere. The order was initially issued on Aug. 10 but residents have been reluctant to relocate despite Russia's renewed push to retake the region. The resurgence comes as

Stephen King just published his most recent horror novel, Holly. Disappointing does not begin to describe it. Do not purchase Stephen King’s Holly if your goal is to be entertained. This book is a poisonous political diatribe from beginning to end. King, America’s premier storyteller of the past 50 years, has never hidden his left-wing political bias. But before the mess that is Holly, King kept himself in check, never making politics central to his story nor demonizing those who do not share his ideology by using fact patterns unmoored from any sort of reality. With Holly, King has jumped the shark.

Mayor Adams warned Saturday that all New York City agencies may have to slash up to 15% from their budgets by the spring in response to the ever-rocketing costs of the migrant crisis. All departments were told they will need to slash 5% from their budget by November, amounting to a several billion dollar haircut from the city-funded portion of Adams’ $107 billion spending plan. But if the city doesn’t get enough financial aid from the Biden administration or state legislators by early next year, Adams warned additional 5% cuts could come in both January and April. “The simple truth is that longtime New Yorkers and asylum seekers will feel

The Democratic mayor of a small Massachusetts city is urging state lawmakers to reform a 40-year-old “right-to-shelter” law that is putting immense strain on the area as thousands of migrant families arrive. Woburn mayor Scott Galvin said by Friday there were about 150 families living in the city’s hotels, an arrangement he called unsustainable for his 40,000 constituents. Under the 1983 right-to-shelter law, Massachusetts officials are legally required to offer housing to any homeless families seeking shelter in the state. The law now covers a rising influx of migrant families, although individuals are not covered under its provisions.
