Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Sunday, November 13. Also check out Kate McKinnon, as Hillary Clinton, singing Leonard Cohen‘s “Hallelujah.” “Clinton-McKinnon ended the song by saying, ‘I’m not giving up and neither should you.’”

  • Quizzical
    • “We have just elected the only climate denying president in the free world, with a Young Earth Creationist vice president.” Do people realize how totally sick, f***ed-up this??? If they don’t, why don’t they? Also, are they outraged? If not, why not???

      • Quizzical

        I like what Katherine Hayhoe said:
        “Katharine Hayhoe, climate modeler at Texas Tech University: I work with cities, states, and provinces — helping them prepare for a changing climate, building resilience to the impacts we can’t avoid, cutting carbon to reduce the impacts we can avoid. Cities like Washington, D.C., Chicago, and even tiny Georgetown, Texas, are at the forefront of this global movement. A president hostile to climate policy may be able to affect federal and even international action: but they can’t stop cities and that’s where the momentum is. That’s what gives me hope.”

  • Video – Anti Trump Protest in Richmond Virginia (11/12/16) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDVFKEKuRzI

  • Video: In response to deplorable/racist acts across country, Paul Ryan claims “We are the party of Lincoln.” Hahahahahahaha. Yeah right, dude — you VOTED FOR TRUMP! This crap is why I call the guy Lyin’ Ryan.

  • Video: Rudy Giuliani is utterly unfit to serve in government; Trump’s businesses are a huge conflict of interest

  • Rational Lefty

    This was the first presidential election in 50 years without the full protections of the Voting Rights Act and the media barely covered it.

    • The fact that the Republican-“led” Congress didn’t reauthorize the VRA is a disgrace, and the fact that this wasn’t a huge story in the corporate media is a scathing indictment of the corporate media.

  • Southern Liberal

    Trump has selected Bannon as his “chief strategist and senior counselor,” and RNC Chairman Reince Prebius as his chief of staff.

    My prediction: Trump administration is going to be like the Bush administration on steroids, with Pence, etc. being the ones running the show and Trump as the figurehead.

    • This is going to make Cheney look like a flaming liberal.

      • True Blue

        Games Or Propaganda party

        So by choosing Priebus, Little Donnie first signals working with the establishment and maybe reassures some smart Republicans who opposed his dangerous world views. Then he goes in a diametrically opposed direction and picks Bannon who favors and fuels racism, division, religious persecution, and inequality. Get ready for the state-run propaganda machine and perhaps shutdown of media as we know it?
