There is a TFR posted effective 0700-1900 local (Temporary Flight Restriction). I suspect it is to keep out any drones.

THIS TWITTER THREAD has some disturbing information, regarding tomorrow in Virginia:


....including the fact that the FAA has apparently declared the airspace over Richmond as a "national defense airspace", restricting access to it until after Monday. AND, fedgov’t has one of these loitering overhead:

This is NOT good. Note that one of the first 3 bills their dictator signed into law yesterday was the one making it unlawful to carry a firearm to a public gathering.

And finally:

The democrats in Virginia are going full totalitarian.
I worry about mis-information coming out of VA...on both sides...

Take the final post above with the list of legislation being “proposed” by the Democrats...

As soon as I saw it, I knew something was wrong...as a 20 year resident of VA who followed politics very closely, I know how legislation is numbered etc..

In the list of bills, you see some marked SB, and some marked SJ...

The two marks SB are true...those bills have been pre-filed and can be found in the on-line legislature tracking site...

I have never seen a bill marked SJ...and can’t find one in the tracking site with that designation...

The final clue is the one about the term of Governor...currently, the Governor serves a 6 year term and cannot run for reelection. There is legislation to change that to four years, with the ability to run for reelection once.

Be careful what you read unless you know the source and trust it...

Thanks for the clarification. I too prefer accuracy when reporting facts. I had also noticed the "SJ", but just assumed that it was a typo.

SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:
Constitutional amendment (first resolution); Governor's term of office. Permits a Governor elected in 2025 and thereafter to succeed himself in office. The amendment allows two four-year terms (either in succession or not in succession) but prohibits election to a third term. Service for more than two years of a partial term counts as service for one term.

MSM false tweets crowd chants “ we will not comply”

When they can be clearly heard saying the pledge of allegiance.

Can’t make this stuff up. Babylon Bee says MSM was hoping and praying for violence.

Saw a nice picture of an African American couple carrying AR15’s at the protest.
