SOMEBODY'S GOTTA GO: "But what neither Sullivan nor Baker knew at that moment was that Austin was already hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, with complications from an undisclosed surgical procedure.

"Days later, Austin’s secret hospitalization has spiraled into a drama engulfing the upper echelons of the Biden administration. Senior White House officials are struggling to answer questions about who knew what, and when, about the former general’s medical emergency. Criticism is pouring in from Congress and the media."

The defense chief is facing criticism for keeping his bosses in the dark about his hospitalization.

Schools are already bad enough for kids. Let's not make it worse by taking tips from the people who've insisted you take your shoes off at the airport for 20 years.

COUNTY BOARD CHAIR CRITICIZES COMMONWEALTH'S ATTORNEY FOR PRO-CRIME POLICIES: "Arlington’s new-for-2024 County Board chairman used a gathering with a civic group to talk some smack, albeit somewhat indirectly, about the behavior of the county’s commonwealth’s attorney.

"Board chair Libby Garvey didn’t go for the jugular, but in a Jan. 2 roundtable between County Board members and the Arlington County Civic Federation, managed to make her point: The county’s relatively recent catch-and-release approach to crime and punishment, she said, must end."

Revolving door 'needs to stop,' Garvey says at meeting with Civic Federation

OBAMA WORRIED ABOUT BIDEN vs. TRUMP REMATCH: "Former president Barack Obama has raised questions about the structure of President Biden’s reelection campaign, discussing the matter directly with Biden and telling the president’s aides and allies the campaign needs to be empowered to make decisions without clearing them with the White House, according to three people familiar with the conversations."

The former president suggests a stronger decision-maker is needed at the campaign’s Wilmington, Del., headquarters.

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS OF THE ARLINGTON GOP ANNUAL VOLUNTEER AWARDS: Arlington Republicans gathered last night for our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner to thank ALL our volunteers for their hard work in 2023 and to honor those who truly went above and beyond.

>>>>> Delyannis-Finta Award

The Delyannis-Finta Award for Distinguished Community Involvement goes to our three candidates -- Juan Carlos Fierro, who ran for Arlington County Board, and Sophia Moshasha & David Henshaw, who ran for State Senate in the 39th and 40th districts, respectively.

Their campaigns embodied the spirit of public service of the namesakes of this award.

Juan Carlos Fierro connected with well-respected civic leaders to learn as much as he could about Arlington governance and local issues in short order, channeling voter discontent and articulating commonsense conservative positions on local issues.

Both Sophia Moshasha and David Henshaw served as Republican standard bearers at the top of the ballot, effectively utilizing VA Senate Republican Campaign funds to reach thousands of voters while diverting their opponents' critical resources from close elections in other parts of Virginia.

With help from the Arlington GOP, these candidates pushed a unified message to more than 30,000 voters across Arlington -- in the mail, across social media, and to the cell phones of Republican, independent, and undecided voters.

>>>>> Hilda Griffith Award

Dominick Schirripa, who was appointed to fill the vacancy left by W. Scott McGeary on the Arlington County Electoral Board earlier this year, is the recipient of the Hilda Griffith Award for Outstanding Volunteer Service.

In addition to stepping into his appointed role on the Arlington County Electoral Board, Dominick has served as an Election Officer in Arlington for 10 years, including Chief Election Officer for several years at Arlington’s largest precinct.

>>>>> Alice Sayre Commonwealth Club Award

Recipients of the Alice Sayre Commonwealth Club Award are recognized for distinguished support of the Arlington County Republican Committee and its candidates. This year's award recipients are Joseph and Vanice Famme, who stepped up in a big way to help fund Arlington GOP's aggressive sample ballot effort.

Their initial support allowed us to generate the enthusiasm to fully-fund, print, and mail more than 14,000 Republican sample ballots to identified Republican voters across Arlington. The original goal -- raise $7,600 in the last two weeks in July -- seemed insurmountable to me as Chairman before Joe and Vanice pledged their support.

Thanks in large part to the Fammes's initial investment, we raised more than DOUBLE our goal, allowing the Arlington GOP to invest in our candidates and prepare for 2024.

DOES NIKKI HALEY HAVE A PATH TO THE WHITE HOUSE? "We’ve entered the home stretch in the lead-up to the 2024 Republican presidential primary. And while Donald Trump continues to lead every major survey of the race, Nikki Haley seems to have at least some momentum to be his chief primary rival.

"But does Haley have a real chance to win the nomination? History shows us she has a plausible road map."

While Donald Trump continues to lead every major GOP primary poll, Nikki Haley seems to have at least some momentum to be his chief primary rival.
