CNN's Nina Turner stomps on a Democratic Congresswoman's effort to blame Trump for the problems with the Democratic Party leadership in Virginia.

I loved this exchanged on "State of the Union" this morning. (Transcript and video.) Jake Tapper was moderating a panel about the mess in Virginia involving the Governor and the Attorney General, both white men who wore blackface years ago, and the black Lieutenant Governor, whom 2 women have accused of rape. Tapper asked Congresswoman Nanette Diaz Barragan (a woman of Mexican heritage) to confirm that she wouldn't want the 3 men — all Democrats — to resign, given that it would make the Republic...

"If ever wearing blackface, even in the 1980s as both Northam and Herring did, is a career-ender, and if we are supposed to 'believe all women,' then all three of these Democrats have to go."

"Only Northam has been thrown overboard by the party, with Fairfax and Herring getting passes so far because Democrats don’t want to nuke the entirety of a state executive branch they control. Regardless, Virginia is an indication of an inflamed and unforgiving Democratic mood that will define the party’s battle for the 2020 presidential nomination. Democrats are about to embark on the first woke primary, a gantlet of political correctness that will routinely wring abject apologies out of candid...

"But the governor, already isolated from Virginia’s political leaders, was fast becoming a pariah outside Richmond, too..."

"... after a wave of top Democratic leaders, including most of the contenders for the 2020 presidential nomination, called on him to resign. And the turmoil enveloping the state only grew when, at 2:55 Monday morning, aides to Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, who would succeed Mr. Northam were he to resign, issued an extraordinary statement denying an online report that the lieutenant governor had once committed sexual assault. 'He has never assaulted anyone — ever — in any way, shape or form,' said two...

My question involves real estate located in the State of: North Carolina (Union County) I built my home, on a 7 acre lot, and constructed a privacy fence along the side lot line 29 years ago (1988) at the same time my neighbor (Della), who shares this lot line, was having their home built on a 2 acre lot in Fairfax Farms Subdivision.

Prez Trump makes (tough) nominations to US Sentencing Commission

Though there is much talk these days of Prez Trump and AG Jeff Sessions being at odds, the President today announced these new nominations to the US Sentencing Commission that I suspect are very much to the liking of Attorney General Sessions.  Here are the basics, with lots of commentary to follow (in this post and perhaps others): Today, President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to nominate the following individuals to the United States Sentencing Commission: If confirmed, Judge William ...

Trump Flirts With Gun Control

Politico: “The president also surveyed Mar-a-Lago Club members about whether he ought to champion gun control measures in the wake of last week’s school massacre in nearby Parkland, telling them that he was closely monitoring the media appearances by some of the surviving students, according to people who spoke with him there.” http://wapo.st/2HuDHxx David Codrea also links this Towhall piece and takes a swipe at Fairfax.  Hey, I get it, and I like to take swipes at Fairfax too.  And don’t get m...

"Virginia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful Ralph Northam omitted any mention of Justin Fairfax, the party’s African American candidate for lieutenant governor..."

"... from about a thousand pieces of campaign literature, a move Fairfax called a 'mistake' and that has stoked tensions within the Democratic ticket and threatens to alienate African American voters three weeks before Election Day. The palm cards with photos of Northam and Attorney General Mark Herring (D) were produced for canvassers with the Laborers’ International Union of North America, which asked that Fairfax be excluded because it did not endorse him. Fairfax has spoken critically of two...
