Tuesday News: Roger Stone and Julian Assange, What a Pair; “I Wouldn’t Wipe My Ass” with GOP Fake “Investigation” on Trump/Russia Collusion; “Who’s afraid of the NRA? Trump”; Go Conor Lamb!

Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Tuesday, March 13.

  • True Blue

    Reading the bizarre reporting about thundastorm; the story appears strangely to be either an audition for a national audience or a ploy by a state politico who needs more attention and swoops in to rescue a “damsel in distress.” Either option is more suitable than her going into the educational arena.

  • Andy Schmookler

    I’ve begun wondering whether the Stormy Daniels affair is going to have more of an impact in hurting Trump than I first believed. My first take was that everyone already knew — or should have known — that Trump was sleazy in sexual matters, and that the hush money aspect wouldn’t add much to the mountain of other legally questionable things he has done (and continues to do). But as the thing continues, I have started to wonder if somehow this little scandal won’t prove so inconsequential.

    I’d be interested in hearing what others think about how important this will prove to be, on a spectrum ranging from “no impact” to “major damage.” And if impactful, how that would be.

    • Jim B

      Trump sleazy affairs don’t seem to have much affect towards his followers, and former Sec of State was right on when he called him a moron.

  • The following is from 2017 Democratic LG candidate Gene Rossi. I’m seriously leaning towards joining him in endorsing Abigail Spanberger, who I find to be super impressive…

    Dear Friends:

    I am very proud to express my strong support for Abigail Spanberger, who is a phenomenal Democratic primary candidate in Virginia’s Seventh Congressional District. Her eventual opponent is an icon of the Tea Party: Congressman Dave “Women-are-in-my-Grill” Brat. The pundits and “Time” Magazine have rightly placed this race in the Top Ten nationally. I would go further. I cannot think of a more important House race than this one. And I cannot think of a candidate more qualified to defeat Congressman Brat. In fact, Abigail’s two outstanding opponents would also give Mr. Brat a run for his money. When Mr. Brat is defeated, we will indeed have an electoral Tidal Wave of historic proportions.

    I endorse Abigail because of her heart, her grace, her intelligence, her passion, and her many years of public service to our county—as a CIA operations officer and a federal agent. She has what it takes to turn the Seventh blue. And her victory will send an incredible message to the nation that healthcare, national security, climate change, education, and many other important issues of the day will receive top priority in the new Congress.

    So I ask a favor. Please join me on Friday, March 30, 2018 (6:30-8:30 PM), in Alexandria, Virginia, at the Port City Brewing Company. I will be chairing an event for Abigail and hope you can come as a guest. I would be honored if you joined me as a host. If you cannot attend, please consider a contribution to her noble cause by using the link on the attached invitation. I hope to see you on the 30th. If any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at generossi4virginia@gmail.com. Spread the word!

    Warm regards,

  • Ewwwwww Jackson very happy Tillerson gone. Also, “important” endorsement coming…can’t wait to see who this freakazoid is.
