So here is a 15 second video of our governor refusing to shake the hand of his opponent (I live is SW Va – a land flowing with milk and honey). Much has been made of his ignorant stunt in college. But this video is from 2013 for cryin’ out loud. How is this not […]

I know it seems inexcusable now, but 1977 was another era. I deeply regret any pain I may have caused. I fully acknowledge my ignorance of other people’s truth. I will redouble my efforts to restore broken trust. Okay, now here’s what really happened. As a teen caught up in a frenzy of inspiration, I […]

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America see a teachable moment as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo blames President Trump and the GOP tax reform for many wealthy people leaving his state over high taxes, but the solution would seem to be pretty simple.

Virginia’s Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax might have as many problems as embattled Gov. Ralph Northam. Big League Politics, the same outlet that broke Northam’s yearbook photos, published a woman’s claim that Fairfax sexually assaulted her. The Washington Post had previously investigated the issue but decided not to publish.

Fairfax and the woman told different versions of what happened in the hotel room with no one else present. The Washington Post could not find anyone who could corroborate either version. The Post did not find “significant red flags and inconsistencies within the allegations,” as the Fairfax statement incorrectly said.

A day after Gov. Ralph Northam apologized for being in a racist yearbook photo (either as a man in blackface or in a Klan outfit), the Virginia Democrat now claims he’s “not the person in that photo.” Northam read a prepared statement inside the Executive Mansion in Richmond Saturday to explain himself:

He said part of the reason he thinks that is, is because he vividly remembers another situation where he blackened his face to portray Michael Jackson at a dance contest in San Antonio in 1984, after graduating from Eastern Virginia Medical School.

I don’t believe I would have to do much convince anyone here (including myself) that Virginia Governor Northram is not only a terrible person, but a buffoon as well. However, the latest news out of Virginia has me thinking: He might know what he’s doing.  More

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see President Trump making a detailed case for border wall funding in tonight’s televised address, a more effective strategy than tweets and sound bites.
