Larry Flynt has come full circle with the Falwell family, following the fall of disgraced evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr., whose fire and brimstone preaching father went to war with the Hustler publisher only to have the Supreme Court side with the wheelchair-bound pornographer.

The 77-year-old entrepreneur penned a column for The Daily Beast all but claiming that the Lord works in mysterious ways.

“When I heard that Jerry Falwell Jr. had resigned the presidency of Liberty University in disgrace, it struck me as the belated ending to a long personal saga with the Falwell clan — and an essential footnote to the role of religion and free speech in America,” begins Flynt’s essay, published Tuesday.

Why am I not surprised?  democrats have not changed.

Several years ago the Science Museum of Virginia began mapping the surface heat in the city of Richmond to identify what are called urban heat islands. What they found closely mirrored the neighborhoods that had been redlined by federal banking regulators, going back to the 1930s.

Dr. Jeremy Hoffman, the Chief Scientist at the Science Museum of Virginia, joined CBS 6’s Bill Fitzgerald to discuss their findings.

Hoffman said it wasn’t necessarily a surprise that low-income areas were the hottest areas of Metro Richmond, but he said it was something of a shock that maps of the communities that were essentially shut out of the economic mainstream nearly a century ago, were identical to the maps his team was drawing.

The first nomination during an election year in the twentieth century came on March 13, 1912, when  President William Taft (a Republican) nominated Mahlon Pitney to succeed John Marshall Harlan, who died on October 14, 1911.  The Republican-controlled Senate confirmed Pitney on March 18, 1912, by a vote of fifty to twenty-six.

Fayetteville has spoken.


“Fill that seat!” the crowd chanted as the president spoke at Fayetteville Regional Airport about who he might nominate to succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the nation's highest court. Ginsburg died Friday at age 87 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

"It will be a woman -- a very talented, very brilliant woman," Trump told the crowd of his potential choice. "I think it should be a woman. I actually like women much more than I like men.”

General Discussion Forum / Proposed rule change for burial at Arlington
« on: September 18, 2020, 11:32:03 PM »

Today, the Secretary of the Army announced the opening of the 60-day public comment period for the proposed changes to eligibility criteria for burial at Arlington National Cemetery. This is the next step in the federal rule making process required to gather public input to proposed changes to the cemetery’s eligibility criteria.

The proposed rule will allow new changes to eligibility criteria which will keep the cemetery functioning as an active burial ground well into the future, defined as 150 years.

Executive Director of Army National Military Cemeteries and Arlington National Cemetery Karen Durham-Aguilera stated, “Arlington National Cemetery began this process when the Fiscal Year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act directed the Secretary of the Army to establish revised eligibility criteria to keep Arlington open well into the future. The Secretary of the Army established imperatives to recognize the individual’s sacrifice, service and impact to the nation’s security. The proposed eligibility criteria honors commitment to military service and is equitable across branches and eras of service. Additionally, any change should be easily understood, fair and consistent with Arlington National Cemetery’s mission.”

ANC is also currently developing the Southern Expansion Project, which includes the area nearest the Air Force Memorial and a part of the former grounds of the Navy Annex. This future expansion will add 37 acres of burial space for our nation’s veterans. However, expansion alone will not keep Arlington National Cemetery open to new interments well into the future. Without changes to eligibility, even with the new expansion, Arlington National Cemetery will be full for first burials by the mid-2050s.

“We are asking our veterans, families, stakeholders and the public to review our website information, read the Federal Register and engage in this deliberate process. All of us have a voice into the future of Arlington National Cemetery,” said Charles “Ray” Alexander Jr., Superintendent. “We will adjudicate all public comments and keep the public up to date throughout the entire process until the final rule is published.”
