Monday News: “Ignorance is Strength”; “The Power of Disruption”; Bruno Mars Tribute to Prince


by Lowell

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, February 13.

  • Video: Joe Scarborough actually has something intelligent to say, about Trump’s fascist thug Stephen Miller


  • Bully/coward Corey Stewart falsely claims he was “attacked by radical left-wing protesters.”

    <blockquoteThis weekend in Charlottesville, as reported by The Drudge Report, I was attacked by radical left-wing protesters.

    Thankfully, before the mob got physical with me personally — a patriot armed with a giant American flag helped escort me safely back to my car.

    Of course, I expected to be attacked by the liberal media and the GOP establishment for having the courage to speak out against the Charlottesville City Council’s attempt to remove a statue of Robert E. Lee from the downtown park.

    But I didn’t expect I’d physically swarmed and attacked by a mob of liberals.

    Lowell, rest assured:

    I won’t back down — even when threatened and faced with physical violence like yesterday in Charlottesville.

  • From the Virginia Senate Dem Caucus:


    RICHMOND – This afternoon, on a strictly party line vote, the Republican-controlled Senate passed HB 1468 by Delegate Robert Marshall (R-Manassas) to confer responsibility for holding undocumented immigrants to local law enforcement until ICE arrives — no matter how long that takes.

    Said Senator Scott Surovell (D-Mount Vernon), “After years of bellyaching over unfunded mandates, what we’re doing here is creating an unfunded mandate. There is already a problem with people waiting several weeks to be picked up by ICE while Virginia’s taxpayers foot the bill.”

    Said Senator John Edwards (D-Roanoke), “This bill was written in such an ambiguous, haphazard fashion, I don’t know how local law enforcement is supposed to understand, much less, enforce it. It’s the responsibility of the federal government to enforce federal immigration law. Let them do their jobs.”

    Said Senator Favola (D-Arlington), “Our federal laws, federal executive orders, and now, federal executive tweets are getting very confusing at this point. This bill just adds to the confusion and is going to make individuals less likely to cooperate with local law enforcement — which will make our communities less safe, not more safe.”
