    Olympia is buzzing this week after it was learned that one of Gov. Jay Inslee's appointees to the Housing Finance Commission 'omitted' (some say lied) on his application, failing to list a 2005 domestic violence conviction that gave him a year in jail. Noe Castillo Jr. was appointed to the commission last November by Inslee, but had to wait til now to be officially confirmed by the Senate Housing Stability and Affordabability Committee before it became official. According to Senate Republicans, Castillo Jr. did list a 2002 Assault -4- charge on his application, but omitted a 2005 domestic violence conviction....
  • Rahm Emanuel warns Dems not to 'mimic' Trump’s politics, says Virginia's Northam shouldn't resign

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel doesn’t agree with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that if President Trump can declare a national emergency to bypass Congress in order to secure funding for his long-promised border wall, a Democratic president can do the same for guns. “The one thing you don’t want to mimic … their politics,” Emanuel said during a guest appearance Friday on HBO’s’ Real Time with Bill Maher. “He [Trump] wants you on certain cases to actually mimic what he’s doing because then there’s a difference of nothing. That’s not where you want to go against him.” The conversation quickly moved...

    The Democrats swept to power in Congress by campaigning in a way that has been successful for Democrats for generations. “Republicans will take away your health care,” they said, after having focus-grouped it. Now we are preparing for a 2020 campaign in which Donald Trump and Republicans can as easily advertise to the public: “Democrats will take away cows, and your car.” What happened to Democrats? Back in November, it looked like Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic House caucus had found the perfect plan for their party in the era of Trump: Avoid talking about impeachment and stick to simple...
  • Bill Cosby's spokesman says the comedian thinks prison is an 'amazing experience'

    Despite the circumstances, Bill Cosby said his time in prison is an "amazing experience," his press spokesman Andrew Wyatt said in a TV interview. Wait, really? "Yeah, he used the term amazing experience," Wyatt said. Wyatt's interview with WCAU in Philadelphia provides new details of Cosby's time behind bars at SCI Phoenix, the prison outside Philadelphia. Cosby was sentenced in September to three to 10 years in prison for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand at his home in 2004. The case came after dozens of women came forward with accusations that Cosby had drugged and assaulted them in similar...

    Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) announced Tuesday that since he took office, voting rights have been restored to more than 10,000 residents previously convicted of felony charges. The announcement comes as Northam has faced calls from prominent Democratic politicians in Virginia and elsewhere to resign after he admitted he wore blackface to a dance party during college. “I believe in second chances and making our Commonwealth more open and accessible to all,” Northam said in a statement released by his office. "Virginians who have repaid their debts should be able to return to society, get a good job, and participate...

    That blackface/KKK photo on Governor Northam's yearbook page won't be a problem for Virginia's black leaders as long as he meets their demands.  The audacious "I am not going anywhere" Northam is wheeling and dealing with the race-baiters here in Virginia to save the Democratic Party and his own "white privileged" skin.  Forget post-birth abortions.  The only way the little ones will have a chance in Virginia with Democrats in charge is if they are allowed to vote. With alleged rapist Lt..Gov Fairfax out of the running, the NAACP, black clergy, and various black legislators in Virginia are stuck with Northam, and...

    Meredith Watson, who has also accused Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, said she was also raped by a Duke basketball player in 1999 that she didn't identify, according to USA Today. Monday, the [New York] Times reported Watson had told friends in the past that she was raped by Corey Maggette and that [Duke university] officials did not pursue the claim despite Watson allegedly reporting the incident to a dean at the university. Maggette, a Los Angeles Clippers analyst for Fox Sports West, did not appear in an originally planned broadcast on Monday. It was announced on...

    Four staffers to Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax have quit in the wake of allegations of sexual assault and rape made against him days ago. Two of the three employees on Fairfax's state payroll and two employees working for his political action committee (PAC) have departed. As a part-time lieutenant governor, Fairfax keeps a small team of aides working on his behalf in Richmond. "The Lt. Governor appreciates the amazing service of his former staff members. Their work and dedication was incredible. He certainly wishes them well and appreciates their service to the Commonwealth of Virginia," said his political spokeswoman,...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 11 FEB 2019 | J. D. Heyes
    Today’s Democrat Party continues to lurch to the extreme Left as evidenced by its political, economic, and social policies. Politically, Democrats favor policies like open borders, “justice reform” that essentially means letting guilty people go if they’re part of a minority group, and anything that Republicans and POTUS Donald Trump don’t want. Economically, the party is closer to Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin than Adam Smith, the latter of whom is credited with being the “father of modern capitalism.” Socially, the party is anti-life and pro-murder — there’s just no other way to say it. While Democrats shed tears for...

    Michelle Rodriguez attested that her “Widows” co-star Liam Neeson is not a racist because of how he kissed Viola Davis during the movie. The actress came to Neeson’s defense Wednesday night at the amfAR gala in the wake of Neeson’s racially charged comments that he wanted to kill a “black bastard” to avenge a friend who had been raped. The actor later apologized and contended that his comments were taken out of context. “It’s all f—in’ bulls—. Liam Neeson is not a racist,” Rodriguez told Vanity Fair at the New York event. “Dude, have you watched ‘Widows’? His tongue was...
  • Before Northam, Democrats Didn’t Just Dress Up as Klansmen

    American Spectator ^ | February 3, 2019 | Daniel J. Flynn
    When Virginia Governor Ralph Northam endorsed fourth-trimester abortions last week, nobody called for his resignation. His decision 35 years ago to masquerade, either in blackface or as a Klansman — which malefaction against taste Northam engaged in seems unclear — offends modern sensibilities to such a degree that his party, his predecessor, and nearly every presidential wannabe says he should step down. This says something more about us than him. Democrats did not always exhibit a zero-tolerance policy toward dressing up in white sheets. They once, at least in some parts of the country, demanded it from candidates. In 1924,...

    So was Brett Kavanaugh, but he had more standing for it, if readers will pardon the pun. In a phone interview with the Washington Post last night, Justin Fairfax insisted that he will not resign despite the emergence of multiple accusers and allegations of sexual assault. Virginia’s lieutenant governor plans to show up in the state senate as usual, and claims that he’s “standing up for due process”: Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D) said he will not step down and will preside over the Senate Monday regardless of any attempts to remove him from office amid allegations that he...
  • FLASHBACK: John Casor – The Case Of The “First Slave” (Northam Relevant)

    02/11/2019 12:26:27 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 9 replies
    Northam was right. Also, the first slave owner in America was a black man: John Casor was legally declared a slave for life on March 8th, 1655, thus becoming the first person ever to receive this treatment. Indentured servants Britain’s first colony in North America was Virginia. There, the officials of this state offered land for free to those colonist who would bring more colonists to Virginia. Many people were ready to take advantage of this offer, but they couldn’t afford the cost of the trip across the ocean. In order to attract more people, the wealthy colonists of Virginia...

    Eva Siakam’s choice to campaign for Ralph Northam in 2017 was a simple one: He was a Democrat and endorsed by Barack Obama, America’s first black president. But sitting in a stylist’s chair at Supreme Hair Styling Boutique in Richmond on Friday, she shook her head in disgust when asked about revelations that Northam wore blackface 35 years ago. “I really believed in him,” said Siakam, a 28-year-old student. “To find out that he dressed up in blackface is disappointing. He’s shown his disdain for black people.” Black voters who factored prominently in the 2017 election that helped Northam become...

    Even as Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam is backtracking from Friday’s apology for appearing in a 1984 yearbook photo featuring someone in black face and another wearing a KKK-style hood and robe, new charges of racism are being leveled against the Democrat, including a racist nickname and refusing to shake hands on television with a black candidate. “I offered my hand to him twice,” says Jackson, the Republican nominee, “and he categorically refused, in fact he acted like I was invisible.” Jackson is founder and president of STAND (Staying True to America’s National Destiny), a nonprofit organization with a mission to...
  • FLASHBACK 2013! Democrat Candidate Ralph Northam Refuses To Shake Republican Hand During Debate!

    02/01/2019 7:19:19 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 18 replies
    Democratic candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam refused to shake hands with his political opponent E. W. Jackson on camera. It is tradition based upon manners and common decency that at the end of candidate debates or forums that each candidate will shake one another’s hand as a show of good sport. Apparently, Democrat candidate for Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam missed that memo. Not to worry, GOP LG candidate E.W. Jackson extended his hand to Northam in such a gesture, so you would expect it to be reciprocated. At first, a viewer might give Northam the benefit of the...
  • Amid Scandal, Northam Surrenders to Virginia’s GOP on Tax Cuts

    Virginia’s ongoing scandals of racist yearbook photos and resignation demands are starting to have repercussions on the state’s taxes and spending. The 2017 federal tax cut signed into law by President Trump capped the amount of state and local taxes that could be deducted, which could add up to a higher tax bill to some Virginians. This year, Virginia Republicans wanted to cut taxes to offset that by raising the standard deduction on state income taxes.
  • Governor Who Endorsed Infanticide Received $2 Million From Planned Parenthood

    Public records reveal Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, who endorsed infanticide as a form of abortion on Wednesday, received almost $2 million in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood. Research reveals nearly $2 million in campaign contributions from the taxpayer funded pro-abortion group Planned Parenthood sent to Northam, who endorsed a bill that would allow new mothers to determine whether they wanted to keep a child after delivery, essentially legalizing infanticide. Northam received $1.996 million from Planned Parenthood Virginia over the course of five years, with most of the donations coming in during his 2017 election campaign. These include massive cash injections...
