Upcoming Events!

September 25 - Meet & Greet and Fundraiser for Jane Dittmar - 3:00 to 6:00 pm

A Meet & Greet and Fundraiser for Jane will be held at the Hystad farm (Conway River Farm) on September 25, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm.

This will be a great opportunity to get to know Jane a little better, and to give her a boost for the final weeks of the campaign. There is no charge or minimum donation required; we want all interested supporters to come and meet Jane. But you know that this campaign is expensive and any contributions you can make will be appreciated.

The hosts will be providing food and drinks. Bring the entire family and friends. Conway River Farm is at 1088 Middle River Road, Stanardsville.

Reservations are not required. If you have any questions, you may call Lisa at 985-4832 or email: hystadlisa76@gmail.com

News & Analysis

Excerpts From Hillary's Praise of Trump!

"Donald Trump’s ideas aren’t just different – they are dangerously incoherent. They’re not even really ideas – just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds, and outright lies.

He is not just unprepared – he is temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility. This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes – because it’s not hard to imagine Donald Trump leading us into a war just because somebody got under his very thin skin.

We cannot put the security of our children and grandchildren in Donald Trump’s hands. We cannot let him roll the dice with America. This is a man who said that more countries should have nuclear weapons, including Saudi Arabia. This is someone who has threatened to abandon our allies in NATO – the countries that work with us to root out terrorists abroad before they strike us at home.

He believes we can treat the U.S. economy like one of his casinos and default on our debts to the rest of the world, which would cause an economic catastrophe far worse than anything we experienced in 2008. He has said that he would order our military to carry out torture and the murder of civilians who are related to suspected terrorists – even though those are war crimes. He says he doesn’t have to listen to our generals or our admirals, our ambassadors and other high officials, because he has – quote – “a very good brain.” He also said, “I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me.” You know what? I don’t believe him.

He says climate change is a hoax invented by the Chinese, and he has the gall to say that prisoners of war like John McCain aren’t heroes. Exactly.

He praises dictators like Vladimir Putin and picks fights with our friends – including the British prime minister, the mayor of London, the German chancellor, the president of Mexico and the Pope. He says he has foreign policy experience because he ran the Miss Universe pageant in Russia."

How the GOP Stopped Caring About You!

Be sure to read this excellent piece in the Washington Post, by historain Heather Cox Richardson. It describes how the Republican party changed from the progressive party of Lincoln to the protectors of Corporate America today.
