Hope you got a large popcorn: The Virginia show is turning into a triple feature!


The Three Stooges: Mark Herring, Ralph Northam, and Justin Fairfax
Ya just gotta laugh at the Virginia road show featuring the three stooges! Ralph Northam (the guv), Justin Fairfax (the assistant guv), and Mark Herring (the AG) are now all flapping in the wind hoisted on their own petards. (I explained that expression here.)

Ralphie got the Jack the Ripper treatment first when his med school yearbook photo turned up showing two fellas, one in blackface and the other in KKK attire. The media frenzy was a great distraction from Ralph's disastrous comments about killing off full term aborted babies born alive. The Dems don't mind doing it, they just don't want a Democrat in a purple state saying so. Cuomo in New York is no problemo. Dems have that loony state sewn up tight. Virginia, on the other hand, still has enough sane citizens to turn our increasingly purple state back to red, at least potentially.

Next feature was Justin, the assistant guv,  exposed (no pun here) when a woman accused him of forcing her head down into his crotch to perform oral sex during the 2004 Democrat National Convention. He says it was consensual; she says it was sex abuse. What do you think? Will the same Democrats who swallowed every accusation out of Christine Ford against Brett Kavanaugh now trash "me too" Vanessa Tyson? Both parties have hired the lawyer teams from the Kavanaugh circus.

What a show!

So can Justin Fairfax survive this? Bill Clinton managed to get away with about a thousand "bimbo eruptions." Maybe Justin can get some advice from him and Hillary the fixer. We'll see.

And then for the next installment -- along comes Attorney General Mark Herring's blackface scandal. After telling Northam to step down, it turns he, uh, did the same thing! He too dressed up in blackface as a UVA student. Oh...but he is sooooooo sorry. No doubt he's also sorry for his utter hypocrisy on calling out the guv. What an irony when you act like a snake and end up biting your own tail.

Question is, how are the Dems who crucified Northam going to handle the ongoing scandal and retain any credibility at all? (Well...it was wrong for the guv, but we can't have all three Dems resign because the next one in line to be governor is.......shrieking sounds......a REPUBLICAN), Virginia House Speaker, Kirk Cox.

This is all so deliciously hilarious! My poor popcorn maker is about to bust a fuse! Stay tuned. It's better than the old Flash Gordon serials at the movies when I was a kid. Welcome to Virginia's live version of The Colgate Comedy Hour.

MaryAnn, this is important but slightly off topic..

I rec'd this from a Catholic friend in VA this morning who is employed at a rehab center. Please remember it is Soros money that is funding the legalization of marijuana in the states.

Look for "Tell Your Children" by Alex Berrensen on Amazon

An eye-opening report from an award-winning author and former New York Times reporter reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug—facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize cannabis.

Recreational marijuana is now legal in nine states. Almost all Americans believe the drug should be legal for medical use. Advocates argue cannabis can help everyone from veterans to cancer sufferers. But legalization has been built on myths– that marijuana arrests fill prisons; that most doctors want to use cannabis as medicine; that it can somehow stem the opiate epidemic; that it is not just harmless but beneficial for mental health. In this meticulously reported book, Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, explodes those myths:

• Almost no one is in prison for marijuana;
• A tiny fraction of doctors write most authorizations for medical marijuana, mostly for people who have already used;
• Marijuana use is linked to opiate and cocaine use. Since 2008, the US and Canada have seen soaring marijuana use and an opiate epidemic. Britain has falling marijuana use and no epidemic;
• Most of all, THC—the chemical in marijuana responsible for the drug’s high—can cause psychotic episodes. After decades of studies, scientists no longer seriously debate if marijuana causes psychosis.

Psychosis brings violence, and cannabis-linked violence is spreading. In the four states that first legalized, murders have risen 25 percent since legalization, even more than the recent national increase. In Uruguay, which allowed retail sales in July 2017, murders have soared this year.

Berenson’s reporting ranges from the London institute that is home to the scientists who helped prove the cannabis-psychosis link to the Colorado prison where a man now serves a thirty-year sentence after eating a THC-laced candy bar and killing his wife. He sticks to the facts, and they are devastating.

With the US already gripped by one drug epidemic, this book will make readers reconsider if marijuana use is worth th
