D.C. a new state? No, aside from being unconstitutional, the district is not worthy of statehood.

I quote Judicial Watch: “As the homicide rate hits a record high in Washington D.C. the city elects a convicted murderer to public office in a unique election featuring all inmate candidates. The freshly elected public official, Joel Caston, has been in prison 26 years and is currently incarcerated at the District of Columbia Jail. In 1996 Caston was convicted by a jury of first-degree murder for ambushing and killing a man in the city’s Anacostia neighborhood. Court records obtained by Judicial Watch indicate that a 2016 appeal was denied. In the document, Caston’s attorneys name the victim, which is not common practice today. Court records also reveal a “speed loader”—a device used to rapidly load ammunition into a firearm—was found by police under Caston’s mattress after the shooting. It contained six rounds of .44 caliber ammunition as well as additional rounds of ammo.

Now Caston is a commissioner on D.C.’s Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC), which advises the D.C. Council and other local government entities involving matters ranging from liquor license applications to public safety. ..Caston was chosen by voters to represent Ward 7, one of D.C.’s most crime-infested areas.”

The District of Columbia was never intended to become a state. In fact, it was made from parts of Maryland and Virginia to be the state-neutral federal district.

A Senate filibuster thwarted the first assault on our republic but you can be sure the radical leftist Democrats have abandoned all pretense of preserving the Union, striving instead for one-party rule, outright tyranny. You can expect an attempt to do away with the filibuster rule to be the next move.

Tell your congressional delegation to oppose D.C. statehood.
