The Morning Report - 2/13/20

Good morning, kids. Thursday and up front, there's a group of stories that taken together beg the question, what the hell happened to Virginia? Whether it's the proximity to DC or thousands of Leftist bureaucratic cogs in the Big Government machine fleeing the madness they wrought and bringing the infection of their voting habits with them (like locusts as Great One Mark Levin coined it) into formerly solid red counties, a steady influx of illegal aliens, a feckless and hapless GOP that would rather kneecap conservatives than fight to preserve political sanity, or a perfect storm of all the above, it's quite evident that the damage has been done. And the prospects for reversal are seriously in doubt.

Within a heartbeat of taking over the state's legislature lock, stock and barrel, the Democrats led by their sickening, repulsive governor, Ralph Northam, AKA Jolson McKlanrobes, rammed through legislation that amounts to actual post-natal infanticide, as well as anti-Constitutional laws that surpass even places like New York and California that move to forcibly strip citizens of their firearms. Despite the heartening pushback by thousands of Virginians in a peaceful, orderly protest in Richmond, it of course fell upon deaf ears since after a brief pause to let tempers blow over and the media disappear, they moved ahead and passed the legislation anyway.

But wait! There's more! Emboldened by these victories, or perhaps fearing a backlash this November and beyond, the gauleiters in the Richmond Reichstag have now passed legislation giving illegal aliens driver licenses, which of course translates into Democrat voter registration, as well as passed another sure-to-be-challenged-in-court bill awarding their electoral votes to whoever wins the popular vote in a national presidential election. That may backfire on them this year but that's another story. Capping it all off was a truly disgusting display when the Democrats attempted to muzzle and ultimately walked out en masse when a black pastor had the gall to trample on their sensibilities by delivering a sermon that rightly denounced legalized baby-killing and the defiling of the sacred institution of marriage.

From the last link, our friend and intrepid science reporter Bob Zimmerman warns us about what's happened in Virginia is being attempted in Arizona, and across the nation:

... Most of the discussion about this story has been focused on the opposition to the laws themselves. I want to focus on what it tells us about the modern Democratic Party. You see, these fascist actions - which do nothing to reduce violence or crime while making law-abiding citizens criminals - are being planned by practically every local Democratic Party operation across the nation. All they require to make them law is to obtain power, as they have in Virginia... Give these Democrats a single legislative session where they run the show, and they are now telling us what they plan to do.

Nor is this an outlier. We've seen similar odious laws passed in New York, California, Maryland, and in practically every state where the Democrats run the government. They are blatant about what they want to do. No one should have any doubts about it.

More important, they are giving us a clear warning about their long-term plans. They not only want to deny ordinary citizens the right to defend themselves, they have made it clear they have utter contempt for those citizens, and will move to destroy all their freedoms if given the chance. Like the socialists in Venezuela, as soon as they have power they will use it to shut down all opposition, ending any semblance of democracy and freedom...

There's coronavirus and then there's coronavirus. In Steve Malanga's article "Calculating the Californication" from City Journal, he had a rather optimistic view that Californians fleeing what is rapidly devolving into Zimbabwe on the Pacific might understand what they are fleeing from and not bringing their politics with them (or that it's mostly non-Leftists that are fleeing in droves). I certainly hope that that is the case since if what happened to Virginia ever happens to the red states they flee to, especially Texas, then it's lights out America, regardless of who wins subsequent national elections.

But the question remains, whither Virginia? With the citizenry now fully aware (at least they should be) that the Democrat tyrants in office are out to subjugate them, and that a growing number of counties and their law enforcement infrastructure are openly declaring defiance of the gun edicts, sooner or later there is going to be a showdown. Already, there is serious talk about many counties splitting off and joining West Virginia. Better yet, they should just secede and declare statehood. That might even have a ripple effect with places like New York City, DC that, in turn, could be countered by one or more rural California counties. Ugh.

Whatever may happen, it is clear in Virginia and in the rest of the nation, what cannot go on will not go on. At least it shouldn't.
