Virginia’s new Lt. Governor Winsome Sears is a force to be reckoned with and proved nothing will stand in her way to get her job done. All documented on Twitter, of course, Sears reportedly used her high-heeled patent leather pump as a gavel in the Virginia Senate.

Washington Post reporter Laura Vozzella first tweeted that “an unknown prankster” took the gavel and hid it. However, Sears “took the trick in stride.” The Lt. Gov took off her shiny shoe, stated, “one shoe can change your life…just ask Cinderella.”

The tweet included a photograph of the shoe, which Sears retweeted from her own account with the phrase “resourcefulness – never underestimate it!” Sears has been making waves and aggravating Democrats because she is the first Black female lieutenant governor of Virginia; and she is a Republican.

Sears also controls the narrow Democrat majority in the state Senate, meaning she is the tie-breaking vote if needed, which she quickly had to do almost upon taking office. On February 10, 2022 she tweeted:

“In my role as Lieutenant Governor, I preside over the Senate each day. While I am not a member of the Senate, I hold the tie-breaking vote in the event of a tie. Today, I had my first opportunity to do so on SB137.”

SB137 was related to discretionary sentencing guidelines, reports Fox News. Sears is a “critical player in the administration of the newly sworn-in Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin, who has taken measures related to COVID-29 and critical race theory in schools.”

As Fox News reports, the administration has taken the state, run previously by a Democratic administration, by storm. “On his first day in office, Youngkin singed 11 executive actions, including needing the use of critical race theory in schools, investigating officials’ alleged wrongdoing in Loudoun County and allowing parents to decide fi their children should wear masks in schools.”

Whistleblower: FBI manipulating cases to create ‘illusion’ of domestic violent extremism

In a letter addressed to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said a whistleblower has come forward detailing how the FBI is manipulating cases related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to create “the illusion” that domestic violent extremism is a widespread problem in the United States.

Jordan, the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, claimed the “manipulative case-file practice” was being conducted by the bureau’s Washington field office, which was instructing local FBI offices to open up cases on their books that were in fact simply related to the Capitol breach.

“The  FBI’s case categorization creates the illusion that threats from DVE are present in jurisdictions across the nation, when in reality they all stem from the same related investigation concerning the actions at the Capitol on January 6,” Jordan wrote.

“Such an artificial case categorization scheme allows FBI leadership to misleadingly point to ‘significant’ increases in DVE threats nationwide,” he added.

Jordan noted this particular whistleblower is just one of many with similar information: “consistent with disclosures we have received from other whistleblowers that high-ranking FBI officials — including a senior WFO official — are pressing front-line agents to categorize cases as DVE matters to fit a political narrative.”

The letter also brought attention to the inappropriate amount of resources the department has devoted to the January 6 Capitol riots:

“The whistleblower disclosed that the FBI is sacrificing its other important federal law-enforcement duties to pursue January 6 investigations,” Jordan wrote. “The whistleblower recalled, for example, being told that child sexual abuse material investigations were no longer an FBI priority and should be referred to local law enforcement agencies.

“Such a posture is not only a dereliction of the FBI’s mission to investigate violations of federal laws, but it is a grave disservice to the victims of child sexual abuse and other crimes that do not advance the FBI leadership’s political agenda.”
