  • Virginia governor Northam's Green New Deal: The State Must Be Carbon Free by 2050

    A few days ago, our small-town mayor in rural Virginia, about 45 minutes from a major nuclear power plant, announced she had received an offer from a company desiring 125 acres of town-owned woodland for a solar farm.  It made little business sense until learning of Executive Order 43, signed on Sep. 16 by Virginia's Gov. Ralph Northam.  EO-43 mandates expansion of solar energy and other renewable energy ideas like those in the Democrats' radical Green New Deal.  Perhaps he had noble intentions, but more likely, it was to regain support from his base after being weakened politically by his alleged blackface photo and...

    Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey apologized on Thursday for her role in a racially insensitive skit involving blackface that her sorority put on when she was a student at Auburn University in the 1960s. Ivey said in a statement on Thursday that while she has no recollection of the skit, or of wearing blackface, she has “genuine remorse” over her participation. Though her fiance at the time, Ben LaRavia, "is the one on tape remembering the skit – and I still don’t recall ever dressing up in overalls or in blackface – I will not deny what is obvious,” Ivey said....

    Senator Ted Cruz speaks at the George H.W. Bush Commemorative Center in Midland, Texas for a campaign stop Wednesday, Oct. 31, 2018. (Mark Rogers/Odessa American via AP) On Sunday, noted left-wing Harvard Constitutional law professor Laurence Tribe ventured off into the fever swamps on the issue of abortion, positing what he thought was a solid reason why white supremacists “opposed” it: White Supremacists oppose abortion because they fear it’ll reduce the number of white infants and thus contribute to what they fear as non-white “replacement.” Never underestimate the way these issues and agendas are linked. This turns “intersectionality” on its...
  • Fellow Democrats called for Northam to resign. Now many are taking his money.

    Va Gazette ^ | 6/17/19 | Marie Albiges
    It’s been more than four months since both sides of the aisle in the Virginia General Assembly called on Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to resign after it was revealed there was a racist photo on his medical school yearbook page. It was one of the few times in recent years Republicans and Democrats in Richmond were aligned on an issue. But as elections for the 140-member legislature draw closer, some Democrats have accepted donations from the governor despite trying to distance themselves from him in the weeks after the racist photo plunged Virginia into the national spotlight. Northam’s political action...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam announced on Tuesday that he’ll recall lawmakers to the state Capitol in the coming weeks to take up a package of gun-control legislation, which he said is urgently needed to prevent killings like Friday’s mass shooting in Virginia Beach. Northam said he plans to convene a special legislative session this summer. The Democrat said in an Associated Press interview ahead of his announcement that he wants the Republican-controlled General Assembly to hear from the public about the need for “common-sense” law related to guns and accessories. Republicans have previously rejected Northam’s gun control bills out of...

    Eastern Virginia Medical School released its report into a photo depicting two individuals -- one wearing blackface and the other a KKK robe -- that appeared on the 1984 yearbook page of Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday but said they could not "conclusively determine" the identity of either person shown. "With respect to the Photograph on Governor Northam's personal page, we could not conclusively determine the identity of either individual depicted in the Photograph. The Governor himself has made inconsistent public statements in this regard. No individual that we interviewed has told us from personal knowledge that the Governor is...

    **SNIP** A few months ago, in a cascade of disgraces both Gov. Ralph Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring admitted to wearing blackface, then Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax was accused of sexual assault by two women. Now the story has seemingly disappeared from the front pages, or any pages, of the local news outlets. **SNIP** University of Virginia political analyst Kyle Kondik says Northam remains in office for a number of reasons. “For one thing, Fairfax is even more toxic than he is, and the accusations against the lieutenant governor help insulate the governor. But I also think the governor...

    Virginia’s top three Democrats have seen donations to their political action committees almost completely dry up in the wake of three separate scandals that rocked the commonwealth earlier this year. Political groups run by Gov. Ralph Northam (D), Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) all struggled to raise money over the past three months, according to campaign finance reports filed earlier this week. The money stopped flowing, the reports show, in the days after Northam apologized for, and then denied, being in a college yearbook photo wearing either blackface or a Ku Klux Klan robe...

    More than a dozen state lawmakers filed onto the stage, summoned by the smiling leader of their state: Ralph S. Northam, the governor of Virginia. On the governor’s right were a handful of House Democrats, who as a group in February said they were “no longer confident in the governor’s representation of Virginians,” after learning of a shocking racist photo on Mr. Northam’s medical-school yearbook page. On his left were mostly Republicans, including the speaker of the House, Delegate Kirk Cox, who’d declared that Mr. Northam’s “ability to lead and govern is permanently impaired.” Some on stage were members of...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Two months after a blackface photo in an old yearbook nearly ended the political career of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, his life seems mostly back to normal. The Democratic governor is cracking jokes at almost daily public appearances around Virginia. State lawmakers who called on him to resign are now all smiles, standing beside him at news conferences. The Twitter mob has moved on to other things, and the antifa-led protests outside his house have stopped. At a century-old black church in Richmond over the weekend, Northam was warmly received as he helped unveil a historic...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s blackface scandal has largely dropped from public view, and one Democratic presidential hopeful says it’s time to move on. Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota Democrat, said Sunday that “we have to move on” after being asked about Mr. Northam in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” **SNIP** “If we spend our whole time, Chuck, talking about what men did wrong, we are never going to talk about what women can do right, including running for president and winning,” she said. After Mr. Todd said that the Northam situation wasn’t a “great picture” for Democrats, Ms. Klobuchar...
  • Virginia first lady Pam Northam apologizes after handing cotton to black children

    Virginia first lady Pam Northam apologized Wednesday after she handed out cotton to black children during a recent tour of the governor's mansion, the latest racial controversy involving the top levels of state government. Northam handed out the cotton while showing students an adjacent cottage to the residence that had once served as a kitchen, asking them to imagine picking the crop as enslaved Africans. "I regret that I have upset anyone," Northam said. "I am still committed to chronicling the important history of the Historic Kitchen, and will continue to engage historians and experts on the best way to...

    A state employee complained that the wife of embattled Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam reportedly handed the students cotton and asked them “if they could imagine what it must have been like to pick cotton all day.” Leah Dozier Walker, an official in the state Department of Education, said that the incident demonstrates that the Northams have not learned from past actions.

    A Virginia state employee has complained that her eighth-grade daughter was upset during a tour of the historic governor’s residence when first lady Pam Northam handed raw cotton to her and another African American child and asked them to imagine being enslaved and having to pick the crop. “The Governor and Mrs. Northam have asked the residents of the Commonwealth to forgive them for their racially insensitive past actions,” Leah Dozier Walker, who oversees the Office of Equity and Community Engagement at the state Education Department, wrote Feb. 25 to lawmakers and the office of Gov. Ralph Northam (D). “But...

    The name of the stepbrother of William the Conqueror was a palindrome, and the ladies who made the Bayeux Tapestry must have enjoyed embroidering it along with the caption under the scene of Odo at the Battle of Hastings. A year after the Norman Conquest, he became Duke of Kent, assuming vast lands and power, but William had already seen to it that he had been made a bishop at about the age of nineteen. He was serious about his episcopal office—even at Hastings where a servant carried his crozier into the fray. Careful of the canonical prohibition against clerics...

    Gov. Ralph Northam announced Friday that Virginia has selected a contractor to build two new tunnels and widen a major highway in Hampton Roads. The $3.3 billion price tag — funded by regional gas and sales taxes, tolls and other sources — makes it one of the two biggest transportation projects in commonwealth history. Northam (D) touted the deal, saying he is “proud of the hard work and negotiations that have taken place over this past year,” and state Sen. Frank W. Wagner (R-Virginia Beach) in return offered praise for the embattled governor. “I want to personally thank Governor Northam...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Hey, it worked for that other racist over in Virginia. – Virginia’s baby-killing racist governor Ralph Northam appears to have shown the way for leftwing nitwits caught doing bad things all over the nation, and Jussie Smollett’s been paying attention. Basically, Gov. Blackface’s strategy has been to lie, deny and go about his business, a strategy copied by his Lt. Governor and Attorney General, all of whom have survived the media firestorm, such as it was, surrounding their bad acts, and continue to govern the once-great Commonwealth. Actors, even bad ones, are...
  • Richmond marchers demand Governor Northam’s resignation

    RICHMOND, Va. — A group of people gathered at Monroe Park in Richmond on Monday to participate in the "March of Reckoning," a protest that demanded the resignation of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. Marchers carried signs -- advocating a variety of topics -- from the VCU Campus to Capitol Square. Northam has insisted he had no plans to resign following his blackface yearbook photo scandal which made international headlines earlier this month. "March of Reckoning" participants said they would not take no for an answer. "As we know nationwide many folks have been pushing for Northam's resignation as well," organizer...
