    While several of Virginia’s congresscritters are calling for Second Amendment Sanctuary counties in the state to be stripped of state funds or to have the National Guard brought in to enforce new gun control laws, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is instead offering veiled threats of “consequences” for sheriffs in Second Amendment Sanctuary counties unless they enforce whatever gun control bills he signs into law. When asked by a reporter if local governments would face retaliation for declaring themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, Northam responded, “There’s not going to be retaliation. That’s not what I’m about. I’m about making Virginia safer.” Northam...

    Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Monday his “assault weapons” ban will mean AR-15 owners can either register their guns with the government or hand them over. The Virginia Mercury reported Northam spokeswoman Alena Yarmosky used a statement to say, “The governor’s assault weapons ban will include a grandfather clause for individuals who already own assault weapons, with the requirement they register their weapons before the end of a designated grace period.” Yarmosky made clear details on other gun controls will be made known before the start of the 2020 session in which Democrats take charge.

The 50-year-old New Jersey senator and presidential hopeful discussed the possibility of marriage with Dawson during Monday's episode of The Wendy Williams Show. "Look, I have hope. I have hope!"

    There’s no question guests Donald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle completely “triggered” the hosts of The View Thursday, as the president’s son was there, ironically to promote his book of the same title. The food fight continued for nearly thirty minutes, finally culminating with Trump shocking hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg by calling out their own controversies. Co-host Meghan McCain somberly lectured Trump over his father’s hostile relationship with her late father, Sen. John McCain. She characterized the downfall of “civility” in society being entirely Trump’s fault, and pressed him if his father’s presidency “was worth it.” While Trump...

    ...The View is just CNN and MSNBC by another name. It is the television version of the NYT and the WaPo, neither of which is a reputable news provider. Like Bill Maher's show, it is only about one thing now: destroy President Trump. These Trump-deranged TV celebs do not care that Trump has managed to reduce unemployment to the lowest on record, that wages are up across the board, that ISIS has been defeated. They loathe him because he is the most successful President since Reagan on every level, despite their attempts to thwart him every step of the way....

    A conservative student senator at Colorado State University, who is black, was kicked out of a student government meeting for wearing “blackface” as part of his Halloween costume mocking Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Colorado State University (CSU) student senator Koby Peters was removed from a student government meeting which took place on the day before Halloween, because he wore a costume depicting Justin Trudeau in “blackface,” according to a report by the Collegian. The motion to remove the student senator passed overwhelmingly with a vote of 29-1-2. Peters, who is black, said that he arrived at the meeting wearing...

    Elections do, indeed, have consequences. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) of blackface fame boasted this week that his party is ready to implement an array of gun control measures in the commonwealth now that Democrats control all three branches of government, and his administration is already "working on" a plan for confiscating so-called "assault weapons" from law-abiding gun owners. What are the details? The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Northam wants to bring back eight "common-sense" gun control measures that Republicans shot down during a special session in July, prioritizing "universal background checks, banning the sale of assault weapons and...

    "The View" co-host Joy Behar was roasted on social media after claiming in a heated interview with Donald Trump Jr. on Thursday that she never wore blackface, a claim that was quickly contradicted on Twitter by the president's eldest son. "[President Trump] called some Mexicans rapists, he attacked the handicapped, he bragged about it," she said. "We heard the 'Access' tape, where he bragged about grabbing women by their genitalia." "We've all done things that we regret, I mean, if we're talking about bringing a discourse down, Joy, you've worn blackface," he responded. "No, I have not," Behar shot back....

    Don Trump Jr. went on ABC's The View to defend his father, President Trump, and promote his new book Triggered. The hosts attacked him Thursday for publishing the name of the whistleblower, and Trump Jr. said he released it because it was already out on the Drudge Report and other news sites. He said the media was hypocritical for criticizing him because ABC had gotten their own whistleblower fired Thursday. The son of the president blasted the network for criticizing him while getting CBS to fire the person who leaked video from a host saying they spiked the Jeffrey Epstein...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam on Wednesday said he will reintroduce gun control measures in the upcoming legislative sessions now that Democrats have taken control of the state legislature. "Getting rid of bump stocks, high volume magazines, red flag laws. These are common-sense pieces of legislation," he told CNN's John Berman on "New Day." "I will introduce those again in January. And I'm convinced, with the majority now in the House and the Senate, they'll become law and because of that, Virginia will be safer." Democrats took control of the Virginia House and Senate on Tuesday for the first time in...

The unidentified Milpitas Unified School District staffer, who is white, swayed as he rapped to students over a simple beat while wearing a basic black-and-white ensemble in front of a class at Milpitas High School, The Mercury News reported. “Opportunities limitless, possibilities senseless, what will you do?” the educator rapped. “Millions of people, not enough to eat, what will we do?

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is stirring up controversy by using the N-word during a live radio interview in New York. The New York Post reports Cuomo was on the air with Albany’s WAMC Public Radio Tuesday when he was asked about criticism of Columbus Day and efforts to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day. The governor brought up a recent New York Times op-ed about the treatment of Italian-Americans and spoke about racism. “They used an expression that southern Italians were called, I believe they were saying southern Italians, Sicilians — I’m half Sicilian — were called, quote-unquote and pardon my...
