    Virginia’s Loudoun County school board shut down a public comment period, and called police to arrest attendees, after parents objected to new transgender policy proposals. Parents attended the Tuesday meeting to weigh in on new policies that include allowing transgender students to choose which restrooms they use, in addition to requiring employees to use the students’ preferred names. The board is expected to vote on the proposals on August 10. A total of 259 parents signed up to express their opinion on the policies at the meeting. But the event quickly derailed when the mother of one transgender student told the board that “hate” was “dripping from the followers of Jesus in this room,” a shot at Christian parents who oppose the proposals.” The comments sparked a chorus of boos and prompted the board to call a five-minute recess.

But when former state Sen. Dick Black (R) took the stand to...

    Virginia State Police are warning residents of northern Virginia that a phone scammer has spoofed a legitimate State Police phone number and has been attempting to trick people into believing they are a state trooper.

    Jeffery Epstein victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre has provided enough evidence to French officials for the late pedophile's model agent friend Jean-Luc Brunel to be charged with multiple rapes, DailyMail.com can reveal.  Virginia Giuffre, 37, is now the key witness in the prosecution of Brunel, 75, after claiming that both him and Prince Andrew, 60, used her as their 'sex slave'. The two men vehemently deny any wrongdoing, but in December Brunel was remanded in custody in Paris after being charged with multiple rapes of Giuffre and a separate case of sexual harassment against an unidentified complainant. It followed dozens of women saying Brunel abused them while running an underage sex ring with Jeffrey Epstein, who committed suicide in prison in 2019. Almost all of the accusations leveled against Brunel are from the 1970s, 80s and 90s, meaning they fall outside the 20-year limit for prosecuting sex crimes in France. This meant that Brunel was considered 'untouchable' by police who nicknamed him 'The Ghost' as he carried on living and working in the French capital, while frequently traveling abroad on scouting assignments and...
