A special prosecutor in Virginia has determined that a Windsor police officer who pepper sprayed and repeatedly threatened a black army lieutenant during a controversial 2020 traffic stop should not face any criminal charges, but should be investigated for federal civil rights violations. Hampton Commonwealth's attorney Anton bell, who was asked to oversee an investigation of the incident, issued an opinion in a letter addressed to the county Commonwealth's attorney who recused herself from the case. Bell says, while he doesn't believe officer Joe Gutierrez violated any state criminal laws during the traffic stop involving the army second lieutenant Corona nazario, he's asking the local U.S. attorney's office to review the case.

That news conference last Thursday when the Virginia Supreme Court gave its final approval that the governor could order the lease statue in Richmond be removed and he did order that the governor did on Monday, and it's starting tonight and it's going to be completed on Wednesday. It will be live streamed at Governor Ralph Northam website. That statute dating back to 18 90.

Some racial justice advocates don't want it removed, seeing the graffiti covered pedestal as a symbol of the protest movement that erupted after the killing of George Floyd, now to hurricane recovering the Northeast and President Biden visit this website. Inside new jersey dot com. Writing about the town of Manville, the first thing that strikes you upon coming into town are the piles of debris, all types of it stacked on the sidewalk of Main Street awaiting pickup. And then there's the shell of the banquet hall, which burned to the ground in the aftermath of last week's floods in a perverse predicament. The problem was water as floods prevented firefighters from getting to the scene. It was this blue collar and Republican meeting Somerset County town that Joe Biden chose to visit today. Before seeing the town up close, though. President Biden meeting with Governor Phil Murphy, FEMA director Dean Creswell and some members of Congress that represent the local area. Also local leaders at nearby Somerset County Emergency Management Training Center. Here's President Biden. Losses that we were witnessed today are profound. Dozens of lost lives, homes destroyed and and manville, including by gas leaks triggered by the flooding, Um damaged infrastructure, including the rail system, and my thoughts are with all those families affected by the storms and all those families who lost someone they loved and understand There's still 22 people missing her for four people still missing, and I especially want to thank Think it's overused phrase, but the brave first responders. I, uh you know, we have, uh, who have exemplified the courage both in New Jersey and next door in New York. They've done an incredible job and we're working closely with Governor Murphy. We're going to continue to do so. I'm here to see first hand what? The damages and find out directly from you all. What? What is most needed now? Look, FEMA has been And I hope as responsive as we've intended them to be. And I'm sure they have 100 and 32 personnel from FEMA so far, including, uh, federal search and rescue teams, including 60 individuals, Incident management assistant teams of 20 people will support uh, this response operations and mobile emergency response support teams of six of them to provide our communications logistics support. And on Sunday when, uh, when the governor and we spoke to the governor, and he asked for the major disaster declaration, we made it available immediately, so so that we could speed federal assistance is quickly as we could. The hearted communities President Biden at the Emergency Training Center in Hillsborough Township, New Jersey. This from the Hill newspaper here in Washington. The White House on Tuesday is asking Congress provide an estimated $24 billion in emergency funding to address natural disasters as part of a continuing resolution to avert a government shutdown. Administration officials said The additional funding is necessary to fulfill unmet needs from disasters over the past 18 months, including hurricanes Laura and Delta and recent disasters like the California wildfires and Hurricane Ida. Officials said that $14 billion is needed to address disasters in extreme weather before Ida anticipate that at least an additional $10 billion will be needed for the response to Ida. In addition to billions of a disaster relief, the Biden administration also asking Congress to appropriate $6.4 billion to help resettle 95,000 Afghan refugees. That's all from the hill dot com The short term continuing resolution, or CR, to keep the federal government operating would need to be passed and signed into law by the new fiscal year. That's October 1st. As president Biden did last week when he inspected Hurricane Ida damage in Louisiana today in New Jersey. He also discussed long term rebuilding. He wants to use money in those bills pending in Congress to fund infrastructure and climate change programs, among other programs. Thanks said We're in this together and so one of the things that today I'm going to ask you about when we get into this some questions and answers here is about, uh, how we're going to build back. And we're going to build back realizing what the status of the climate is now what the trajectory of it is going to be, and we can no longer we all know you can't just build back to what it was before. Whatever damage done in New Jersey. You can't build back and restored but it was before because another tornado another well, 10 inches arrange going to produce the same kind of results. So I want to talk a little bit about the specifics about the things you think you would need not just to get back to normal, but to get back to a place where if it happened again, the damage would be considerably less. That's what this is all about. In my view, this is an opportunity. I think the country is finally acknowledge the fact that global warming is real, and it's moving at an incredible pace. We've got to do something about it. I'm going to be going from here to the cop 29 in Glasgow. For the world meeting together and how we're going to deal with climate change, and it is. I think we're one of those inflection points where we either act or word gonna be. We're gonna be in real real trouble. Our kids are going to be real trouble after President Biden met with the Governor Murphy and the local members of Congress and local officials.

Former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder Slams Terry McAuliffe for Marginalizing Black Candidates
"Two years ago, Terry McAuliffe remember he's the bagman for the Clintons turned, McAuliffe called for all three persons occupying the offices of governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general to resign. All three Democrats. Governor Northam had been shown pictured in his school's yearbook in blackface and subsequent revelations by age Mark Herring acknowledged appearing in blackface in 1985. What is it with this black face and liberals and Democrats seriously? The media ran the story of two women accusing lieutenant governor Fairfax of sexual assault actually raped. Denied by Fairfax. But former governor McAuliffe within minutes thereafter proclaimed the accusations to be credible. I think incredible by the way Today. McAuliffe is asking people to vote for the attorney general who served as his attorney general and seeks the continuing a sport supportive Northam. No reasons have been given to the voters as to Terry's change of mind, nor has any reason being made why McCulloch felt compelled to violate Virginia's longstanding precedent. By choosing to run again against persons who had far more experience he means of the Democrat primary. Then he As he had never held elective office of any kind when he ran. All of the candidates he opposed, except one were black, including two women. Whom he felt not qualified to be given the chance that he'd been given at last report. Governor Northam is what drawn his apology for black face. Is what Northam and Herring did all right. By any standard is McCullum going to tell the voters of the credible evidence that he has relative to Fairbanks? Does this suggest? That if you're a black person in Virginia If you've got to think about who you're going to vote for it, then you ain't black. Stay tuned.

Yes, Ben. Thank you for having me back on and I would love to say hello, Hello to your listeners, and I hope you will consider voting for the Republican ticket this November, folks because we want hope and opportunity, not woken broke. Well, that's the spirit you've got. You do have the Democrat primary resolved now, Terry McAuliffe top of the ticket as expected, with 62% of the vote in your race, the lieutenant governor's race. Hala Ayala is now at the Top there with 39% of the vote, and Mark Herring is now once again at the top of the ticket for attorney general. What do you make of this Democratic ticket? Here's what I'm saying. I want to start out by saying this very thing. People are being cancelled, meaning they're being silent. They don't know what to say. They're being told what to think. Words don't mean what they used to mean anymore, right is now wrong up is now down. And so you know, people are tired of being sick and tired and little revolution is coming for all of us, because once they run out of Republicans, they're going to come for you and they've already started and I know enough Democrats and independents are saying he enough is enough. They're tired of the bickering. They're tired of the white against Black Asian Get the rights that this it's just constant, divisive fight that the liberal establishment has given us and I'm saying to you I'm running to be lieutenant governor for all Virginians, and, like Rodney King said, Can't we all just get along? And if that's what you want that I'm asking you to please consider voting for change. Voting for the Republican ticket. You know Winston stairs one of the big areas that you will have to win in order to or at least make some gains in. That's really, really the game here in order to win, the lieutenant governor's seat is in Northern Virginia. You're going to have to pick up a bunch of voters in Northern Virginia. That's just the way Virginia politics work. And right now we're watching a pretty dramatic story play out in Loudon County. A PE coach there. Tanner across a couple weeks ago, speaks up at a school board meeting and expressed his opposition to a transgender policy that he believes would be a violation of his religious conscience and his obligation to tell the truth to the Children that are in his care. The school board and the school system says Sorry. You're going to be punished. They put him on paid leave. He just fought his way through. The court process got reinstated to the classroom while Case gets litigated in that court in Loudon County. Will this be an issue for you during the campaign? Are you going to make this a focus on what's going on in our schools, particularly in Northern Virginia? Am because, you know, I am former vice president of the State Board of Education, and when I looked at the results of the latest report card, it's the Nate study the national Assessment of Educational Proficiency, and it tests the kids all around the country in the 4th 8th and the 12th. You hear their learning and what they're if they're proficient, and so we find that 84% of black kids by the eighth grade are failing math and 70% of Latino kids are failing Eighth grade math. You know what that is? That's the school to prison pipeline starting and so we don't have time. We don't have time. Teach critical race theory. We need our kids learning because they need hope, and they need a future and we need them to get good jobs and they're not going to get it. If we're not teaching them this and and let me tell you accelerated math. My God, We need that. That's what got man to the loan. And do you know who helped to do that? Three black women. Everybody saw that movie hidden figures. If they didn't have accelerated math, we wouldn't have gotten there. So this notion that black kids can't do in Latino kids can't do. I'm sick and tired of being used by the boat establishment. I'm sick of it, and a lot of us are sick of it. Yes. In fact, critical race theory is not only a waste of time, it actually would be to tell the very black students you say are failing in their proficiency in math, for instance. That Look, It's not your fault. Don't worry about it. There is a system that that is designed to keep you from succeeding. You would tell young people who are being educated that they are being held down and they are not the determinants of their own future. This is what it's all about. And we've heard this phrase before, if the low expectations of soft bigotry and it says that black skin black kids, Latino kids, you know whatever we can't do, and it also falls in line with a photo ID. You know, I just have to have some documents notarized. Are you? You know what? I have to have a photo ID e folks. Are you telling me that black people don't have important documents that need to be notarized. So we have important papers that need to be notarized so that we would need a photo. I d You know, this narrative of black people can't black people can't black people can't it just It means us and it victimizes us and I'm all about lighting a candle. Because the curse the darkness is to be a victim. I am not a victim. My father came to America with a dollar 75 from Jamaica, and he put himself through school because education is what lifted him. I was at Booker T. Washington's home out here, and we'll party hearty Virginia. That man came up from slavery, the title of his book, That's right, and if he can do all that he did. Through education. Then we need education. And that's why folks you're going to get school choice when I'm elected when the whole ticket is elected, we're going to get full choice because it is for our money to go with the child and not with a brick building and we're going to have a voucher system that says you accept all Children because they're doing it in Florida.
